An “inspirational journalist” who set out to portray a hopeful image of Somalia was murdered in Somalia in a terrorist attack days ago, marking yet another tragedy for Democrat Minnesota congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s home country. President Donald Trump has challenged progressive members of Congress to return to their homelands to address the humanitarian and political crises gripping the Third World.
The BBC reports: “While most coverage of Somalia focused on civil war, militancy and famine, Hodan Nalayeh made it her mission to show another side to the country – its beauty and that of its people.
Her desire to focus on the positive and ultimately inspire young Somalis around the world to help rebuild the country made her famous – and her death in Friday’s attack on a hotel in the southern city of Kismayo has prompted an outpouring of grief.
She and her husband Farid Juma Suleiman were among the 26 people killed as gunmen stormed the Asasey Hotel, where regional politicians and clan elders were discussing a forthcoming regional election.
In a Facebook post, her family said Nalayeh – a 43-year-old mother-of-two who was pregnant at the time of her death – had “spent her life devoted to serving the Somali people and reporting on positive, uplifting stories” in order to “spread light and love to the Somali world”.

Danielle Stella has thrown her hat into the ring for the Minnesota 5th District congressional seat in 2020. Stella the Republican is taking on Ilhan Omar, who is currently rocked by accusations that she committed immigration fraud by entering into a fraudulent marriage.
Stella, a special education teacher who works with autism spectrum children, is making the First Amendment a top priority in her campaign, according to her website, which states:
“Make no mistake, our First Amendment Rights are under fire. Conservative voices are openly being suppressed by big tech and social media giants; to include, but not limited to, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, and Google. This suppression is akin to civil information warfare. U.S. citizens cannot afford to turn a blind-eye. Conservatives must band together. Facebook monitors the offline behavior of its users in order to determine whether or not to label them as “hate agents.” Pinterest was outed by a former software engineering for labeling pro-life advocates, Live Action, as “white supremacist.” These labels are branded simply for expressing views that oppose leftist ideology.
I currently speak out against this subdual of our freedom of speech and will continue to vigorously fight for the rights afforded to all Americans within the First Amendment. Democrats on the hill either ignore or celebrate the suppression of Conservative voices.”
Stella’s platform is uniformly patriotic, and reserves special attention for the cause of life, stating:
“I spend my days working with children that have special needs and I know, now more than ever, that every child deserves a chance to thrive. Democrats claim abortion is “healthcare.” The original Hippocratic Oath from the Greek Medical text explicitly forbids abortion as a valid practice in medicine, as translated by Michael North, National Library of Medicine, 2002.
“I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.”
Yet, abortion activist label abortion “healthcare” to scare young women. Elective abortion is not healthcare. The state of Florida records every reason for each abortion performed. The stats are deeply shocking. In 2018, there were 70,083 abortions in the Sunshine State. Only 4.57% of the abortions were performed because of incest, rape, or life-threatening dangers to the mother or child.
I believe choice start in the bedroom. Choice starts with responsibility of both individuals involved. Choice starts choosing to doing the right thing at the right times. I do no believe nor support a “reset button” that involved killing and even at times, dismembering a child until death.”
Stella will clearly gain some national support as Omar continues to garner criticism from all sides.
