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.

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.

Pelosi is Emboldened by Coronavirus Bailout, Vows to Dupe Republicans Harder Next Time
The Democrats’ socialist agenda is winning big during the coronavirus panic.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled the wool over the eyes of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans with last week’s $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The disaster relief money was earmarked for many liberal pet projects, and Pelosi aims to do the same thing for the next round of bailouts.
She said on Monday that House Democrats are already preparing another massive stimulus bill, using the coronavirus pandemic to enact more socialism. She is likely to include massive infrastructure spending and serious government intervention into the health care markets in the upcoming legislation.
“Our first bills were about addressing the emergency. The third bill was about mitigation. The fourth bill would be about recovery. Emergency, mitigation, recovery,” Pelosi said during a conference call.
“I think our country is united in not only wanting to address our immediate needs — emergency, mitigation, and the assault on our lives and livelihoods — but also, how we recover in a very positive way,” she added.
Republican leaders are up in arms about how Pelosi is exploiting a crisis to get her partisan agenda muscled through Congress, but it is unclear if they have the courage to actually stop her.
“They’re approaching it — it seems like — as an opportunity to pass their political and ideological agenda. We’re approaching it as, ‘How do we protect the public health and our economy?’ And those are pretty divergent goals,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said.
Pelosi is eager to exploit the coronavirus crisis quickly and use the panic and fear in the public as an excuse to massively increase government spending and control.
“I do think that it is really important that as soon as we are here, we are ready to pass legislation,” she said.
President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans did Pelosi’s bidding when they moved forward a $2 trillion bailout bill that included funding for liberal policy goals that had nothing to do with the coronavirus.
Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) sounded the alarm over the sham and attempted to get Congress to actually deliberate and vote on the bill. It instead passed on a voice vote with most legislators sequestered away from Washington D.C.
"This was a wealth transfer… do the math. The $1,200 check is just the cheese in the trap" @RepThomasMassie stood alone in Congress against last week's 2 trillion-dollar stimulus package. He explains why it SHOULDN'T have been a controversy. #istandwithmassie pic.twitter.com/nPPNYh5vkS

Massie’s principled stand against Pelosi’s profligate spending bill earned him a tongue lashing from President Trump, who now wants Massie replaced in Congress because he’s too conservative.
…& costly. Workers & small businesses need money now in order to survive. Virus wasn’t their fault. It is “HELL” dealing with the Dems, had to give up some stupid things in order to get the “big picture” done. 90% GREAT! WIN BACK HOUSE, but throw Massie out of Republican Party!

With no Republicans seemingly willing to stand up against Pelosi, there will likely be more bailout socialism on the way as the Democrats use coronavirus for their far-left power grabs.
