Ilhan Omar, the Democrat Elite, and the National Iranian American Council: Enemies Foreign and Domestic?

Last night at his MAGA Rally in Toledo, Ohio, President Trump spoke to an enthusiastic overflowing audience where, according to FoxNews.com

In unequivocal terms, Trump slammed House Democrats’ nonbinding War Powers Resolution, which passed earlier in the day in a rebuke to the Soleimani strike. Trump went on to suggest that Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and “little pencil-neck” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., would have tipped off the media about the operation had they known about it.

“They’re saying, ‘You should get permission from Congress, you should come in and tell us what you want to do — you should come in and tell us, so that we can call up the fake news that’s back there, and we can leak it,'” Trump said. “Lot of corruption back there.”

Yes, sir.

I know of at least one House Democrat who would have gladly given the Iranians all of the details of the operation.

FoxNews.com reports that

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., was pressed on Thursday over her support for the anti-Israel Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement and her opposition to the ongoing U.S. sanctions on Iran, claiming the two are “very different.”

On Wednesday, President Trump announced in his address following Iran’s attack on U.S. military bases in Iraq that his administration would be launching additional sanctions against the regime while extending an olive branch to revive peace talks between the two nations.

Omar slammed the decision.

“This makes no sense. Sanctions are economic warfare,” the congresswoman reacted on Twitter. “They have already caused medical shortages and countless deaths in Iran.”

She added. “You cannot claim to want de-escalation and then announce new sanctions with no clear goal. This is not a measured response!”

Critics, however, slammed the Democratic “Squad” member, pointing to her support of the progressive economic movement meant to hurt Israel over its settlements over disputed territory with the Palestinians.

Omar was approached by Townhall senior writer Julios Rosas outside Capitol Hill and was asked to respond to those calling her out.

“The BDS movement is a movement that is driven by the people,” Omar told Rosas. “The sanctions on Iran are sanctions that are being placed to create maximum pressure by a government. That is very different.”

Her response will likely not calm her critics, who were vocal about what they consider to be hypocritical views on social media.

“Ilhan Omar views sanctions on terror regimes to be ‘economic warfare’ but supports them when aimed at the world’s only Jewish state. Must just be a coincidence,” one Twitter user quippedin response to Omar’s tweet.

“Ilhan Omar has now decried sanctions on the Castros in Cuba, Maduro in Venezuela, and the Ayatollah in Iran,” Michael Abrams, a GOP communications director, wrote. “At the same time, she’s the leading voice in Congress on sanctioning the Jewish people in the world’s only Jewish state. Wonder why.”

As is quite evident from her words and actions since being elected to Congress, not only is Representative Omar a Far Left Radical, she is also most definitely a Radical Islamist.

Per GatewayPundit.com,

Ilhan Omar won a historic victory over 44-year incumbent DFL Rep. Phyllis Kahn.

Ilhan Omar built a vast coalition of East African voters to defeat the incumbent in Minneapolis.

The liberal media forgot to mention Ilhan was married to her brother.

In 2017, several months after Omar’s marriage history briefly created a national news item, Omar quietly petitioned family court for a default divorce, claiming she could not locate Elmi.

Democrat Ilhan Omar ran against the BDS – anti-Israel -movement.
But now that she won her election she is open about her support for BDS.

Per their website BDSMovement.net,

The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement works to end international support for Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law.

Of course, Representative Omar is also supported by and supportive of CAIR – The Council on American-Islamic Relations.

However, Rep. Ilhan Omar is not the only supporter of Iran among the Democrat Elite.

On Wednesday, FreeBeacon.com reported that

Democratic presidential contenders Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) are slated to host a conference call with an Iranian-American advocacy group that has been accused of lobbying on Tehran’s behalf.

Along with Reps. Ro Khanna (D., Calif.) and Barbara Lee (D., Calif.), Sanders and Warren are scheduled to speak Wednesday evening with members of the National Iranian American Council (NIAC). The group played a central role in what former Obama national security adviser Ben Rhodes called the administration’s pro-Iran Deal “echo chamber,” spinning journalists, lawmakers, and citizens.

The Democratic candidates’ willingness to engage with NIAC—a group that aggressively pushed the accord and has strongly advocated against U.S. sanctions on the Islamic Republic—reflects their desire to see America reenter the nuclear deal, which released up to $150 billion in cash to the regime. Much of that money has gone to fund Iran’s regional terror operations, including recent attacks on American personnel stationed in the region.

NIAC has deep ties to Iran’s regime, including senior officials like Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. Zarif worked closely with NIAC founder Trita Parsi, who, in turn, consulted with the Obama administration.

Parsi lobbied Congress against sanctions on Iran in 2013 and met with Obama administration officials at the White House dozens of times leading up to the nuclear deal’s signing in 2015. Multiple U.S. officials and senior congressional sources informed the Washington Free Beacon that Parsi helped the White House craft its messaging as it tried to sell the nuclear deal to the public. The NIAC chief met with Rhodes, among other top officials, during multiple visits throughout the Obama era.

Rhodes delivered a keynote speech at the 2016 NIAC leadership conference.

President Trump let off the Democrats in Congress lightly when he used the word “corruption”.

He should have called them TRAITORS.

There is a rumor going around right now that Former President Barack Hussein Obama, not Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, is the driving force behind the House Democrats laughable attempt to impeach President Trump.

Now, you can all say that this ol’ cracka has lost his mind again, but who is that has been advising Iran as to how to deal with President Trump for at least the last two years?

Obama and his assistant, Former Secretary of State John Kerry, that’s who.

It is a documented fact, backed up by pictures taken of Kerry with Iranian governmental representatives in Paris, France in 2018.

If Trump were to be run out of office, a major block to Iran being a nuclear power would be out of the way.

Vice-President Pence is a good man and he would stand his ground but, they would probably go after him with even more ridiculous lies than they have President Trump.

Perhaps, I am way off base.

However, the phrase “America’s enemies, Foreign and Domestic” keeps running through my mind…

Pray for our President.

Until He Comes,

Do you ever feel helpless about what's going on? Do you turn the sound down when a member of "The Resistance" speaks? Do you talk back to the television? I understand fully. My blog contains the views of a 61 year old Christian American Conservative. I was raised by members of The Greatest Generation. My father landed at Normandy. I love this country. By the way, how did that Hopey-Changey Thing work out for ya?

I have been writing daily since April of 2010. I enjoy researching and sharing my thoughts with you. It is a privilege and it beats the heck out of punching a hole in the wall.

Thanks for reading my posts!

I'll keep writing....

Until He Comes,
