In a 2013 interview with Ahmed Tharwat on his former show “Belahdan” on Twin Cities PBS, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) claimed that a terror attack in Kenya was a reacting to “our involvement in other people’s affairs.”
“What you’re insinuating is what nobody wants to face. Nobody wants to face how the actions of the other people that are involved in the world have contributed to the rise of the radicalization and the rise of terrorist acts.
Usually most people want to not look internal and see what their actions that makes another react. For us, it’s always ‘I must have not done anything. Why is it happening to me?’ Nobody wants to take accountability of how these are byproducts of the actions of our involvement in other people’s affairs.”
At the time, the al-Shabaab terrorist organization had attacked the Westgate mall in Nairobi, killing 70 people.
This, according to the freshman Congresswoman, is somehow the fault of the West.
Omar’s comments were a response to Tharwat’s assertion that terrorism is “a reaction to a situation.” Later in the interview, Tharwat said that “the violence done [by] the West is done by the people that are elected” and not what he described as “fringe societies,” meaning war-torn nations in the Middle East and Africa.
This comment prompted Omar to say that Western world had “legitimized” violence.

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.
