Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is under fire yet again after she refused to give a proper vote on a resolution condemning the Muslim butchery that the Ottoman Turks inflicted on the Armenians in the early 20th century.
Omar only voted “present” on a successful resolution that called what the Turks did to the Armenians a genocide. In her statement after the fact, she used the alleged crimes of white America as an excuse for her cowardice.

Armenian advocacy groups are not happy with Omar for her unwillingness to call out the barbarians of Turkey for the crimes perpetrated against their people, which stand amongst the worst in history.
Omar’s “votes and actions … do not represent the best of American or Muslim values,” said Van Krikorian, who co-chairs the Armenian Assembly of America. “Innocent people were and are being slaughtered, and there is a universal need to defend the victims of genocide and ethnic cleansing, not to stand with or defer to the murderers.”
“It worries us,” said Aram Hamparian, the executive director of the Armenian National Committee of America, responding to Omar’s statement in a phone interview to NBC News. “It reminds us of talking points from Ankara.”
The American Council of America believes that Omar is using “official genocide denialist rhetoric to justify her silence.” Turkish NBA player Enes Kanter, who cannot return to Turkey because he would be imprisoned due to his public criticism of Islamic dictator Recep Erdogan, blasted Omar in a social media post as well.
What an absolute disappointment and shame that the only democrat who did NOT support the Turkish bill aiming to stop the killing of innocent people is @IlhanMN who seems like on #DictatorErdogan ‘s payroll working for his interests, but not for the American people and democracy!

Even prominent liberals who have stood with Omar in the past can see that her excuses for voting present do not hold up.
Congress has passed many resolutions condemning abuses against Native Americans and slavery. It has never passed a resolution condemning the Armenian genocide. That's why Ilhan Omars explanation here rings hollow https://t.co/HztWDR8zGf

Omar’s constituents are putting her through the ringer as well for her shameful inaction.
“If [she] is going to be representing our community here, she should hear us,” said Michele Byfield Angell, the parish council chair at St. Sahag Armenian Church in St. Paul, to the Star Tribune. “If she’s voting present as acknowledging it but not doing anything about it, then what is she doing?”
The House passed the resolution, H.Res. 296, by a 405-11 vote on Tuesday. Shamefully, 11 Republican legislators voted against the resolution, which prevented the measure from being approved unanimously.
The dissent against the resolution shows that radical Islam wields considerable power over members of both major political parties in the US, but no lawmaker represents their interests more boldly than the vehemently anti-Semitic, anti-American Omar of Minnesota.
ANOTHER PHONY? Sen. Josh Hawley Does Nothing to Oppose Big Tech Visa Giveaway for Indian Nationals
Hawley’s silence is deafening.
Yesterday, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) was able to pass S. 386 with unanimous consent in the Senate. The legislation is a green card giveaway lobbied for by Big Tech that will flood America with cheap Indian labor and displace native workers.
Lee has been exposed as a lawmaker who is in the back pocket of Silicon Valley monopolists at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution:

While it is expected that Lee would completely sell America out, the silence from his colleagues who have claimed to vehemently oppose Big Tech has been far more suspicious. The unwillingness of Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) to oppose the measure has caused him to lose credibility among the populist “America First” base.
.@HawleyMO built his entire reputation as the Republican who wants to take on big tech. He couldn't even must up an objection against a bill that gives them a mass amount of cheap labor. https://t.co/nzhHwXtIir

It's been a day and @HawleyMO still hasn't said anything about S. 386. Next time he says he's fighting against Big Tech, don't believe him

Big League Politics reported on how not one GOP senator had the courage to offer opposition to Lee’s big government giveaway to third-world foreigners at the behest of tech corporations who hate free speech:
Utah Senator Mike Lee succeeded in passing legislation in the Senate that would eliminate per-country-caps on recipients of H-1B visas on Wednesday, a policy change that would effectively monopolize the visa system for nationals of large countries such as India.
The Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act has been called the greatest corporate welfare program for Big Tech in recent memory. Lee has persistently sought to pass the corporate giveaway, with previous attempts to eliminate per-country-caps being blocked by Democrat Dick Durbin and Republican Rick Scott. Neither Senator objected to the unanimous passage of the modified S386 legislation on Wednesday afternoon.
Big Tech monopolies such as Apple, Google and Microsoft have fervently lobbied in favor of eliminating per-country caps, seeking to replace their American workforces with de facto indentured workers who accept lower wages and worse working conditions. The pervasive use of the H-1B visa in the American technology industry has displaced countless American workers from their careers.
Lee’s giveaway doesn’t specifically raise annual H-1B visa rates, although an increase in numbers of visa workers would be a likely consequence of its enactment. It’s expected that the program will be dominated by Indian nationals in the event that Lee’s HR1044/S386 is signed into law, providing massive corporations with a considerable labor pool willing to work for less in return for an American visa.
The legislation was most recently updated with a provision blocking Chinese nationals from using the H-1B program. This provision appears to have been instrumental in securing its passage through the Senate.
It appears that Hawley is attempting to co-opt President Trump’s movement without offering much of anything in terms of real substance.
