Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has dominated the news after making frequent offensive comments about the Jewish people and the state of Israel, and her brand of hate is paying off. Omar raised a formidable $832,000 in the first quarter, mostly from small donors.
According to her FEC filing, Omar posted one of the most lucrative hauls of any member of Congress. The Democrats have apparently bought into her victim ploy, as Omar has repeatedly used the fact that she is the first Somali-American member of Congress to avoid taking responsibility for her incendiary remarks.
Women—especially women of color—have been told to go slow, to not be seen and to not be heard for many years.

This is dangerous incitement, given the death threats I face. I hope leaders of both parties will join me in condemning it.

Nearly half of the money raised – $415,000 – came from small donors who gave less than $200 to Omar in individual donations. Disgruntled Muslims happy they are finally receiving representation in Congress and guilt-ridden white liberals who adhere to diversity and multiculturalism as a religious dogma have coalesced behind Omar, filling her coffers with an impressive total.
Omar received a mere $10,000 from political action committees, showing that she is not beholden to any special interest that would interfere with her Islamic socialist agenda. Her independently raised wealth will allow her to gain an even stronger standing in a Democratic Party that is already kowtowing to her every whim.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is practically holding the entire Capitol hostage to the whims of Omar, who claims she is being threatened without providing any evidence.
“I spoke with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family and her staff. They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces,” Pelosi said in a statement to reinforce Omar’s victimhood after the President released a tweet exposing her plain words.
The Democrats couldn’t even pass a resolution condemning anti-Semitism because Omar’s victim status took precedence over all else.
Radical socialists in the grassroots rose up and put Democratic leadership in their place when they tried to hold Omar accountable for her comments:
This letter was sent to @SpeakerPelosi today from hundreds of leaders across the country who stand with @Ilhan and want Democratic leadership to expand language of their resolution. No double standards. Condemn all forms of bigotry. #IStandWithIlhan https://t.co/C8uHbMOMDq pic.twitter.com/bFSW1jwCtT

At the end of the day, the text of the resolution was changed and the read as a racist attack against white people on behalf of all designated victim groups. Omar gloated after the victory she orchestrated.

While Democratic leadership may want to downplay the influence of Omar and other freshman socialist radicals in Congress, it is clear they are running the show as the anti-Trump “resistance” sends modern liberalism to crazy town.
California Democrat Harley Rouda Has a Restraining Order Against Him- Filed by His Own Mother!
That’s a new one!
A California freshman Democrat has a restraining order filed against him- by his own mother!
Harley Rouda, who represents California’s 48th Congressional district, has had a restraining order filed against him by his mother, Marlese Rouda, since 2011. View the document here. Rogue Review first reported on the bizarre legal development on Tuesday.
Rouda is legally restrained from “directly or indirectly harassing, annoying, interfering with, harassing by telephone, assaulting, or doing bodily harm, to Defendant, Marlese N. Rouda…”
Maybe a restraining order from an ex-girlfriend or wife is one thing, but it’s somewhat of a legal novelty to have a restraining order filed against you by your own mother. The order was granted by a judge in a Franklin County, Ohio Court Division of Domestic Relations, so it’s likely he engaged in poor behavior of some kind against his own mother.
An earlier clause in the restraining order bars Rouda from selling, destroying or taking possession of any household property belonging to his mother, suggesting the order might’ve been granted after Harley Rouda stole or sold some of his mother’s possessions.
Rouda is a freshman Democrat running for reelection in the Orange County District against Republican Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel. California Republicans view the formerly red, now purple congressional seat as within their reach after a Republican retook the nearby 25th district in a special election earlier this year.
There might be some mothers who have second thoughts about voting for Rouda’s reelection, after finding out that he hasn’t exactly been the most loving son to his own mother.
