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.

HUH? Matt Gaetz Helps Disgraced Globalist RINO Scott Turner Attempt Return to Congress
Gaetz’s association with this RINO is worrisome.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has gained a reputation as a Congressman who embodies “America First” principles, but he will be fundraising for a disgraced RINO from Virginia who hopes to regain a Congressional seat he lost in 2018 due to his campaign’s corrupt actions.
Gaetz will be appearing with former Congressman Scott Taylor on Thursday in Newport News, Va. for a “meet and greet” at 2nd Street, an American Bistro. There is also a private roundtable event with Gaetz and Taylor that is available to those willing to pay an unlisted price for access to the duo.
Taylor lost his 2nd District Congressional seat to former Navy commander Elaine Luria, a Democrat, in the 2018 mid-term elections after only one term in office. Luria defeated Taylor by a 51 to 48 margin, as voters rejected Taylor following an embarrassing petitions scandal.
Taylor’s team was accused by Democrats of forging ballot signatures for a third-party candidate in a desperate attempt to split the vote. Judge Gregory Rupe ruled that the concerns of the lawsuit filed by Democrats were valid, and the independent candidate was thrown off of the ballot as a result. Taylor’s staffer would eventually be indicted for campaign fraud as a result of the actions taken for the campaign.
“Scott Taylor is a disgrace,” said Waverly Wood, Founder of the Virginia Freedom Caucus. “He’s an embarrassment to the party. This is exactly what you would expect from the RINO establishment.”
Big League Politics has reported on Taylor’s sad history as a RINO in Congress, supporting open borders and attending a Soros-funded globalist summit.
“This bottom feeding Washington group, NumbersUSA, is being completely disingenuous with this BS Ad. This is a group that raises money off people’s fears,” Taylor said of the anti-illegal immigration organization that pointed out his support for amnesty.
Taylor also spoke in favor of foreign aid to the Soros-funded Global Citizen summit in Sept. 2017.
“Good evening fellow Global Citizens,” he said. “It’s great to be here and an honor to represent Virginia.”
“Now is not the time to cut foreign aid,” Taylor said during his speech that lasted about a minute.
His appearance at the blatantly globalist event can be seen here:
The connections between Gaetz and Taylor go back several years, as the men have campaigned with each other and exchanged contributions between their respective campaign committees.
Live in NWF and want to see a young, energetic, conservative congressman in action? Aug 2 fmr Navy Seal Congressman Scott Taylor will join us for a YUGE rally in Niceville! @Scotttaylorva https://t.co/6LfpaHMG9m

Open Secrets shows that the Friends Of Matt Gaetz committee donated $2,000 to Taylor’s campaign to help the disgraced RINO get his Congressional seat back. Records retrieved from FEC.gov also show that Scott Taylor for Congress gave Gaetz’s Congressional campaign $2,000 in Aug. 2018.
It is impossible to know Gaetz’s motives, as he did not respond to the request from Big League Politics to explain his associations with the RINO Taylor.
