Ilhan Omar Makes Horrifying Remarks About Concentration Camps

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) made shocking remarks about concentration camps on Friday, stating that she does not “even know why” it is “controversial” to compare immigrant detention facilities run by the U.S. government to concentration camps.

Omar’s comments came in response to a question from a reporter at The Rebel, who asked Omar: “Do you agree with AOC that ICE is running concentration camps on the border?”

“There are camps and people are being concentrated,” Omar responded. “This is very simple. I don’t even know why this is a controversial thing for her to say.”

“We have to really, truthfully speak about what is taking place and this is why it’s really important for us to abolish ICE and make sure that we have an agency that is accountable to the people.”

. . .

Many condemned Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks, noting that her comments amount to Holocaust trivialization, which is on the spectrum of Holocaust denial and is a form of anti-Semitism.

Donald Jr. Goes After Roy Moore: He’s Doing a Disservice to All Conservatives and Spreading Fake News

. . .Roy Moore has decided to cross President Trump and virtually the entire Republican Party by once again running for US Senate in Alabama. Moore infamously managed to lose Jeff Sessions’ old seat to a Democrat last year, squandering what should have been a slam dunk in a state Trump carried over Hillary Clinton by nearly 30 points. GOP voters in the state ignored the president’s endorsement, and multiple warnings from the national party, in the previous primary process, resulting in an electoral catastrophe. Moore was a disastrous nominee, combining strident extremism and prejudice with a cringeworthy scandal about which he lied and misdirected. Liberal Doug Jones won the special election, thanks to quite a lot of anti-Moore crossover support.

Jones is highly likely to lose in 2020, an outcome that could help Republicans retain the Senate, which is very much undetermined. Perhaps the only way Jones could cling on is if the fatally-flawed Moore somehow persuades Alabama Republicans to once again endanger a Senate seat by selecting him as their standard bearer. President Trump has very explicitly urged Moore not to run this time (Moore didn’t even concede his last race, making him the Stacy Abrams of the Right, except his loss was in a crimson red state), but the twice-suspended ex-judge evidently doesn’t care. And he’s trying to pretend that he’s not flouting the president’s wishes with his newly-announced campaign, but Don Jr. is having none of it:

Other elements of the party are similarly uniting against Moore, a crank who has already directly proven that he’s capable of handing this “safe” seat to the Democrats. Much like his effect on high school girls, Moore would yet again make this seat unsafe:

Will He Be Dragged for Treason? Obama Accepted Unsolicited Intelligence from a Foreign Source During 2016 Election

The liberal media went nuts. The Democrats had what was to be their 10,000th meltdown over something President Trump did or said. In this case, it would his remarks about accepting dirt on his opponent from foreign sources, which he said during an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, a former Clinton political operative. Trump said it’s called opposition research. This isn’t anything new. It’s amazing, the gaslighting effort the Left is deploying on this front. It’s not shocking because…Hillary Clinton did it. The Clinton campaign hired Fusion GPS, who then hired ex-MI6 spook Christopher Steele to compile the document known as the Trump dossier; Democrats footed the bill for this operation.

The dossier was trash. The Mueller report debunked it, but at the time, it was a political opposition research document. It also cited sources still active in the Kremlin. And this information, shoddy and unverified, was used to secure a FISA spy warrant against Carter Page, a former foreign policy advisor to the Trump campaign. So, no, accepting dirt on your opponent from a foreign source did happen. It does happen. And even Obama accepted unsolicited advice from a foreign source during the 2016 election relating to Trump-Russia collusion. John Solomon of The Hill has more:

In July 2016, the Obama administration accepted unsolicited information from Alexander Downer, an Australian diplomat who just happened to have helped arrange a $25 million government donation to the Clinton Foundation years before. Downer said that he had witnessed a Trump campaign aide, George Papadopoulos, bragging about some dirt that the Russians supposedly had on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Though Downer’s claim was reported two-plus months after the alleged event, and was only hearsay gathered at a London tavern, the Obama administration gave it to the FBI which, in turn, thought it was weighty enough to justify opening a counterintelligence case against the lawfully elected Republican nominee for president. . .

In October 2016, less than three weeks from Election Day, the Obama Justice Department approved a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant to spy on the Trump campaign through its former adviser, Carter Page. The primary evidence supporting the warrant? A dossier written by a foreign friendly named Christopher Steele, a retired MI6 intelligence agent from Great Britain. Of course, the Justice Department and the FBI forgot to tell the courts that Steele actually was working on behalf of the Clinton campaign, but that’s a small detail for the purpose of this column.

Trump Approved Military Action Against Iran, Then Called Strike Off

President Donald Trump reportedly approved a military strike against Iran on Thursday, and, with planes in the air and ships in position, the strike was reportedly pulled back at the last minute.

“As late as 7 p.m. Thursday, military and diplomatic officials were expecting a strike, after intense discussions and debate at the White House among the president’s top national security officials and congressional leaders, according to multiple senior administration officials involved in or briefed on the deliberations,” The New York Times reported.

“Officials said the president had initially approved attacks on a handful of Iranian targets, like radar and missile batteries,” The Times continued. “The operation was underway in its early stages when it was called off, a senior administration official said. Planes were in the air and ships were in position, but no missiles had been fired when word came to stand down, the official said.” . . .

Navy Capt. Bill Urban, U.S. Central Command spokesman, said in a statement: “CENTCOM confirms that a U.S. Navy drone was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile system while operating in international airspace over the Strait of Hormuz at approximately 11:35 p.m. GMT on June 19, 2019. Iranian reports that the aircraft was over Iran are false. This was an unprovoked attack on a U.S. surveillance asset in international airspace.”

“Congressional Democrats emerged from the president’s classified briefing in the Situation Room and urged Mr. Trump to de-escalate the situation,” The Times added. “They called on the president to seek congressional authorization before taking any military action.”

Wait…the FBI Was Warned Key Document Used to Investigate Paul Manafort Was Probably Fake?

We have a Department of Justice Inspector General report that’s about to drop that goes into the alleged FISA abuses. It’s one of the many areas where the investigators of the Russia collusion myth are being placed under the microscope for possible malfeasance. It’s about time. For two years, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team of die-hard Democrats apparently tried to prove collusion and couldn’t. His exiting presser, which was all but a red flare to House Democrats to start impeachment proceedings, only reinforced that notion. There is a massive witch-hunt aimed at getting President Donald Trump. From this Russian collusion nonsense to tax returns, they’re throwing all of it up against the wall in hoping something will stick. The collusion narrative was their best hope. It blew up in their face when Mueller report said that there was no collusion or conspiracy between the Kremlin or the Trump team during the 2016 election, the language of which Mueller tweaked to make it seem like an open-ended question. It’s not. His report is quite clear on that. . .

So, what’s the latest development? Oh, none other than the FBI being warned that the leading document used to go after Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort might have been fake, which was reported in the press in 2016 citing none other than Mr. Kilimnik. Mr. Solomon has more on the second document that now looks like it could be total trash:

…the “black cash ledger,” remarkably has escaped the same scrutiny, even though its emergence in Ukraine in the summer of 2016 forced Paul Manafort to resign as Trump’s campaign chairman and eventually face U.S. indictment.

In search warrant affidavits, the FBI portrayed the ledger as one reason it resurrected a criminal case against Manafort that was dropped in 2014 and needed search warrants in 2017 for bank records to prove he worked for the Russian-backed Party of Regions in Ukraine.

There’s just one problem: The FBI’s public reliance on the ledger came months after the feds were warned repeatedly that the document couldn’t be trusted and likely was a fake, according to documents and more than a dozen interviews with knowledgeable sources.

Dem Staffer Who Doxxed GOP Senators During Kavanaugh Fight Is Going to Prison

The Supreme Court fight over the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh was brutal. It was vicious. It was everything that politics is at heart: warfare. We are a nation of blue states and red states. There are Democrats and Republicans. There are liberals and conservatives. We don’t get along. We don’t like each other. And we share absolutely nothing in common. Our differences cannot be bridged. Our views of government cannot be reconciled. That was explicitly displayed as the Democrats tried to execute one of the most destructive character assassination attempts since Clarence Thomas. And the ammunition they used for this political assassination attempt was the equivalent of a .308 Winchester round: sexual assault. Most of the allegations couldn’t be corroborated. Most of them were trash. In reality, you need solid evidence, witnesses, etc., but Democrats decided to take the ‘belief is evidence’ route. That’s precisely wrong.

Throughout the battle, Republican senators were doxxed by a former aide to Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) who was sentenced to four years in jail for releasing their personal information. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), and Mike Lee (R-UT) were targeted in the doxxing scheme. It was the largest data breach in the Senate’s history (via Politico):

A former aide to Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.) was sentenced to four years in prison Wednesday for hacking Senate computers and releasing personal information online about five Republican senators out of anger spurred by their roles in the confirmation hearings for Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Hogan said the sentence for Jackson Cosko, 27, was needed to send a signal that criminal harassment driven by political motives would be punished severely in an era marked by extreme political polarization.

Democrats: 11,400 People Died from ‘Gun Violence’ Since House Passed Universal Background Checks

Democrat gun control advocates gathered at the Capitol on Thursday to put out a rally call for the Senate to take up the universal background check for gun purchases bill the House passed 114 days ago, claiming 11,400 people have since died from “gun violence.”

That claim, which puts the “gun violence” toll at 100 a day, can’t be squared with any existing data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which tracks mortality from guns but does not have data from this year. Even the so-called Gun Violence Archives, which Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer referenced in his remarks, doesn’t jibe with the stats cited at the rally. . .

Schumer also claimed that there have been 102 mass shootings in the United States since the House passed HR 8, but according to the Gun Violence Archives he references, 176 mass shooting are recorded there and those include a wide range of incidents ranging from domestic murder-suicides to drug and gang-related incidents. . .

But even the leftist VOX website and the New York Times reported that the vast majority of gun deaths are from suicide — 65 percent in 2015, the latest year that the CDC has data. . .

The list from the CDC shows death from guns as Number Ten on its list of the top causes of death in America following heart disease, cancer, accidents, respiratory disease, stroke, diabetes, flu and pneumonia, and kidney disease.

Illegal Alien Rapist Released by Sanctuary City Allegedly Attacks Same Disabled Victim Three Days Later

A 32-year-old disabled woman in King County, Washington, was the ultimate victim of both weak-on-crime policies of local officials and sanctuary city status. The woman, of White Center, Washington, whose name remains unpublished, was raped by Francisco Carranza-Ramirez, 35, a citizen of Mexico, last fall. He served only nine months in prison. Last Thursday, he was released from prison without local law enforcement notifying ICE, and he allegedly went straight to the victim’s home, dumped her out of her wheelchair, and assaulted her in front of her three-year-old son.

Carranza-Ramirez was arrested September 26 for raping the wheelchair-bound woman in her home. He pleaded guilty at an arraignment in February, but because he was only charged with third-degree rape, as part of the deal, King County Superior Court Judge Nicole Gaines-Phelps sentenced him to time served, allowing him to be released the same day he was sentenced, on June 13, after just nine months in prison. His lawyer convinced the judge to release him without any probation.

Here is the twist. Typically, lawyers for illegal aliens try to cover their immigration status so they are not deported. In this case, the lawyers openly used his immigration status to avoid probation supervision upon release. His lawyer suggested that because he was homeless in King County and planned to board the next flight to Mexico, there was no need for further involvement in the American justice system. Having it both ways, the judge granted him full release on condition he register as a sex offender and provide proof that he left the country by June 25. Thus, the entire leniency was predicated on him being a Mexican citizen, but at the same time, neither the judge, the prosecutor, nor any local law enforcement notified ICE that this man was released.

Sanctuary city officials often contend that they have no interest in performing immigration work, yet in order to release this man without any supervision, the judge actually engaged in her own “self-deport” deal without getting ICE involved.

The result? Carranza-Ramirez didn’t fly to Mexico. He violated the protection order by coming within 1,000 feet of the victim just two days later on June 15. The next day, King County sheriff’s detectives say, he came to the victim’s home, knocked her out of her wheelchair, and attempted to strangle her in front of her three-year-old son. Sheriff’s deputies found her Sunday night on the ground with cuts and bruises and her wheelchair overturned. She was treated in a local hospital for a seizure and concussion and then released to a hiding place.

This could easily have been avoided had he been transferred to ICE or had ICE at least been notified of his release. Bryan Wilcox, acting field office director for Seattle’s ICE office, confirmed with KOMO that Ramirez “has committed a crime that would make him eligible for removal from the United States.” Now he remains a fugitive, and there is an arrest warrant out charging him with assault, felony harassment, intimidating a witness, and felony violation of a sex assault protection order.

To begin with, even putting immigration status aside, this is yet another example of how, despite all the talk of “over-sentencing” in the justice system, there are far more examples of under-sentencing, even for the most violent criminals. Here is an account of what happened last year, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer:

Carranza-Ramirez first talked to the woman on Sept. 24, 2018. He allegedly approached her, talked to her but then she said she had to pick up her 2-year-old son and go to dinner.

He met the two later at the restaurant where she felt uncomfortable throughout the dinner, probable cause documents said. He offered to give the two a ride home as they lived close and she accepted. When they got home, he walked into the apartment with her with no invitation.

She told police he started touching her, telling her inappropriate and uncomfortable things like “I want to feel you.” She said she was scared of him, too scared to do anything when he carried her out of her wheelchair and allegedly raped her in her bedroom, documents said. He left afterward and she said she called 911, but hung up, feeling too scared.

Two days later, he entered her apartment again after walking her and her son back from the mailbox. She said he pushed her wheelchair to the bedroom where he raped her. She told him to stop repeatedly, until she convinced him she had to go to the bathroom. She called 911, but halfway through the call heard him move and put the phone down. The operator reportedly heard the woman saying “stop” and “I’ll be quiet.”

When deputies arrived, the woman was able to get away from Carranza-Ramirez, and deputies arrested him in the bedroom.

It is unconscionable that this man was sentenced to time served without any supervised release, but it clearly happens all too often, especially in “sanctuary-minded” jurisdictions that believe in “criminal justice reform.”

Then there is the egregious horror that a criminal alien was able to terrorize this woman multiple times, yet was never turned over to ICE. Last year, the King County Council adopted a policy of refusing to notify ICE or hold criminal aliens to be detained.

Moreover, in May, Governor Jay Inslee signed a law barring localities from even inquiring about immigration status. This is the single most important piece of information upon arrest, much more that someone’s race, because it makes all the difference of whether that person can be released to victimize more people or be returned to their home countries. Again, the state officials are having it both ways. If they want to “see no evil, hear no evil” about immigration status, that is fine. ICE has the ability to monitor the arrest records and inform local law enforcement with incontrovertible evidence that the person in custody is here illegally. But then they want to release them without informing ICE, even after ICE already confirmed the status.

Thus, states like Washington are not just washing their hands of immigration enforcement, they are actively harboring federal criminals.

On Monday, ICE released a mini-list of some recent egregious cases of violent criminals being released in Oregon and Washington thanks to sanctuary policies. In April, an illegal alien from Mexico was arrested in Oregon for raping a dog that later had to be euthanized. He was released two months prior to the incident, against an ICE detainer request. Oregon is currently considering a bill to grant illegal aliens driver’s licenses.

To date, Congress has declined to pass any legislation fixing the sanctuary city problem. With millions of criminal aliens remaining in the country, many of them harbored by sanctuary cities, that is the ultimate humanitarian crisis for the American people, yet Congress only sees humanitarian concerns about those they have not sworn an oath to protect.

Speaking for so many nameless victims in this country who don’t have international lawyers or Kim Kardashian in their court, this victim told KIRO, “I feel like the police did their job but the rest of the criminal justice system thoroughly let me down.” (For more from the author of “Illegal Alien Rapist Released by Sanctuary City Allegedly Attacks Same Disabled Victim Three Days Later” please click HERE)

President Trump Sends Ominous Warning to Iran After U.S. Drone Was Shot Down

President Donald Trump on Thursday responded with a warning after Iran’s Revolutionary Guard shot down a U.S. drone.

Taking to Twitter, the president declared Iran has “made a very big mistake!”

According to the Associated Press, the Iranian military said it shot down a RQ-4 Global Hawk drone over Iranian airspace. Revolutionary Guard commander General Hossein Salami commented that the shooting of the drone was intended to send “a clear message” to America and added that Iran does “not have any intention for war with any country, but we are ready for war.”

The U.S. says the drone was shot down over international airspace in the Strait of Hormuz. The U.S. military’s central command characterized the incident as an “unprovoked attack.”

The attack on the drone comes amid heightened tensions between the U.S. and Iran, just days after the Trump administration says Iran attacked two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. President Trump’s national security adviser, John Bolton, and Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., have been the most outspoken proponents of threatening retaliatory military action against Iran. The president himself has reportedly shown skepticism about military intervention in Iran, calling the oil tanker attack “very minor.”

Could the president’s tweet mean his position has changed? (For more from the author of “President Trump Sends Ominous Warning to Iran After U.S. Drone Was Shot Down” please click HERE)

Trump Raises ‘Jaw-Dropping’ Amount of Money in a Single Day

By PJ Media. Everyone is aware of the incredibly large campaign kickoff event in Orlando on Tuesday, but the official launching of the reelection campaign was even more successful than just the incredible number of people who wanted to attend. The Washington Post reports that Donald Trump raised an incredible $24.8 million in less than 24 hours. That one-day total is more than any Democratic presidential candidate raised in the entire first quarter. . .

Joe Biden raised $6.3 million in the first 24 hours of his campaign launching and nearly $20 million to date. Bernie Sanders raised $20.7 million in the first quarter. (Read more from “Trump Raises ‘Jaw-Dropping’ Amount of Money in a Single Day” HERE)

Trump Stages His Greatest Show Yet

By Politico. . .As soon as Trump took the stage in his signature red tie, the crowd seemed pleased to have waited. They greeted him with “USA” chants as he recalled the “movement” he started four years ago.

“It turned out to be more than just a great political campaign. It turned out to be a great political movement because of you,” the president said, echoing the same nationalist message that became a staple of his first presidential run. “It’s a movement made up of people … who believe that a nation must care for its own citizens first.”

Fans camped out since dusk on Monday to secure a spot inside the 20,000-seat Amway Center. They began chanting familiar slogans as anticipation built for the evening’s main act and familiar characters took the stage. Trump’s eldest son, Don Jr., riled up the crowd with a series of attacks against Joe Biden, a telling sign that his father views the former vice president as his likeliest opponent. Vice President Mike Pence promised the crowd that four more years “means more jobs, more judges … and at least four more years to drain the swamp.” (Read more from “Trump Stages His Greatest Show Yet” HERE)
