When it comes to foreign policy, do foreigners know best thanks to their particular experiences? One anti-Semitic Democrat, Ilhan Omar, sure seems to think so, and of course, she is specifically relating to herself. In fact, the Minnesota representative thinks our policy needs a complete overhaul:
“It’s important for me to think about what an overhaul of our foreign policy should look like from the standpoint of really thinking how it impacts those around the world, and where our values intersect with what’s happening. We spend a lot of money in engaging unwinnable wars, and I don’t think it matches with the values of trying to create prosperity in the United States.”
Omar thinks this overhaul should work much the same as the Green New Deal, the climate control plan from the media’s darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who suggests cow farts are endangering our planet. “When I think about foreign policy, we need something equivalent to the Green New Deal,” she said. So, what specifically does the freshman think the U.S. needs to change in its foreign policy? Well, for starters, drastically cut the military. “[A]s someone who has seen the United States from the perspective of a foreigner,” Omar said, “Our focus should be on diplomacy, in cultural and economic exchange.”
Omar, who was born in Somalia, moved to Kenya with her family and later sought refugee status with the U.S. But she wouldn’t know what diplomacy was if it smacked her in the hijab. Before instructing others, she should reflect on her own peacekeeping flaws. Just for groans and moans, let’s take a look back through recent Omar history and her examples of diplomacy.
- “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel,” Omar said, and then accused her co-congressional associates of working with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) because “it’s all about the Benjamins baby” referring to one hundred dollar bills.
- Her anti-Semitism sparked the anger of Vice President Mike Pence who encouraged her removal from the Foreign Affairs Committee. “And at a minimum anyone who slanders those who support this historic alliance between the United States and Israel should never have a seat on the Foreign Affairs Committee in the United States House of Representatives,” he said.
- Who could forget her atrocious disregard for the tragic 911 terrorist attack where she said “some people did something”?
- More recently, Omar took to slamming Christians and their beliefs about abortions.
Pride in Country?
When it comes to foreign policy, diplomacy is not something to sneeze about. There are protocols that need to be followed to keep from dangerously insulting countries’ officials. Omar insults the very country she represents, so why would she be a good choice to overhaul our policies?
In an interview with Vogue Arabia, she said living in a Donald Trump world and his crackdown on illegal immigration is “an everyday assault. Every day, a part of your identity is threatened, demonized, and vilified. Trump is tapping into an ugly part of our society and freeing its ugliness.”
The freshman rep. has a particular view on how the United States should conduct its foreign policy. “I think we are seen as a leader, and we have an opportunity for people to follow if we are leading with moral conviction.”
Moral conviction? Larry Klayman, the founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, filed a complaint on May 13 requesting Omar be deported, at the least, because of her “alleged immigration fraud and association with terrorist support groups.” He also references her alleged marriage fraud. He claims it was a sham marriage to her brother to obtain him legal status in the U.S.
“The recognition of who should be the president of a country should always be reserved for the people of that country,” Omar said of foreign policies. “Regardless of what I think might be happening in a country, we don’t get to pick a leader for them.”
Yet, Omar and her husband may have influenced an election in Somali, as Liberty Nation’s Jeff Charles pointed out. “Omar endorsed former Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed in his bid for presidency,” and “her husband endorsed Hassan Ali Khayre, an oil executive, for prime minister.”
“After Mohamed won the race in what The New York Times called “one of the most fraudulent political events in Somalia’s history,” he nominated Khayre for the position of prime minister. Only days after Khayre was approved, he appointed Mohamed Keynan as permanent secretary. Who is Keynan? Well, he just so happens to be Omar’s brother-in-law. But perhaps this is just a simple coincidence?”
An overhaul to our foreign policy, by Omar’s terms, would mean regulations drafted by a possible illegal refuge (if Klayman is correct), alleged bigamist, anti-Semitic with ties to terrorist groups, someone who routinely insults the American people, Christians and Jews, and someone who wants to abolish ICE and provide open borders while drastically reducing our military presence across the world.
Does anyone else see a possible ulterior motive, one that has nothing to do with making America Great Again?
