    What a horrible, Un-Christian tagline for a state that loves loves saying it’s so religious.

    As a devout heathen, I thought it was kinda funny. From what I’ve heard, there are pearly gates with a guardian, St. Peter, right? Entry into Heaven is merit based is it not?  No open borders there, however, entry into Hell is a piece of cake, or so they say.

    House Majority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said Wednesday that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) could face “further action” from Democrat leaders if she continues expressing prejudiced views.
    Asked by reporters about antisemitic statements made by Omar and fellow freshman congresswoman Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Hoyer replied, “Congresswoman Omar apologized,” adding that “the real test is the actions on the floor.”

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) named Omar to the House Foreign Affairs Committee last month, despite her previous support of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel and previous tweets in which she claimed the Jewish state was “hypnotizing the world” and responsible for “evil doings.”

    The liberal media forgot to mention Ilhan married her brother.
    Power Line reported:
    A reader has written us to point out that the Somali website Somalispot posted information last week suggesting Omar’s involvement in marriage and immigration fraud. The post notes that Omar married Ahmed Hirsi in 2002. Hirsi is the father of Omar’s three children.  (The marriage license is online) The post further notes that Omar married her brother Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, implying that the latter marriage assisted his entry into the United States. Her brother was a British citizen.

    But fraud, incest, bigotry and racism is OK for Omar, she has Muslim Privilege so we are not allowed to criticize her.

    The House Republicans moved an amendment opposing antisemitism through the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday, using an unusual parliamentary maneuver from the minority that rarely succeeds. It passed 424-0.

    The amendment declares that “t is in the national security interest of the United States to combat anti-Semitism around the world.” Democrats, embarrassed by ongoing criticism of the antisemitic rhetoric of several members, including first-term Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), felt no choice but to agree.

    The full text of the amendment adds that “all attempts to delegitimize and deny Israel’s right to exist must be denounced and rejected,” which contrasts directly with the views of first-term Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

    . Yes and admission is being nice and caring and loving and treating others like you would want to be treated. That’s kinda how it works to be a good person

    There is nothing Heavenly about the Democrats these days, though:

    Extremism, Scandals Rip Apart Democrat Party: Radicalism, Racism, Anti-Semitism, Sexism, Socialism Threaten Left’s Return to Power

    Trump has taken advantage of the Democrats’ misfortunes, first delivering a State of the Union address last week that received rave reviews from the public per post-speech polling, then hitting El Paso, Texas, on Monday evening for a rally where he bashed Democrats and the media and also began laying the groundwork for the core themes of 2020.

    Trump beat up the Democrats on their  scandals (too many to list her) and ripped his political opposition’s emerging extreme views on a variety of issues (again, too many to list), all the while celebrating a new poll that has him surging up at a 52 percent approval rating.

    And to top it all off, the stupid Russia Collusion hoax has been debunked.  At least it exposed the MSMs bias and Democrat corruption.

    . Didn’t the president straight up ask him to nominate him though 😂 I mean if you have to resort to that to get nominated then you may not deserve it.

    No need for Shinzo Abe: Trump already nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

    Trump has already been nominated by two Norwegian lawmakers.
    “We have nominated him of course for the positive developments on the Korean Peninsula,” Per-Willy Amundsen, who was Justice Minister in Prime Minister Erna Solberg’s cabinet in 2016-2018, told Reuters.

    “It has been a very difficult situation and the tensions have since lowered and a lot of it is due to Trump’s unconventional diplomatic style,” he added.
    Amundsen, who is a member of the rightwing Progress Party, wrote a letter to the award committee together with his parliamentary colleague Christian Tybring-Gjedde, he said.

    The letter was submitted in June, immediately after a summit Trump held in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un aimed at easing tensions and tackling Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program.

    Tybring-Gjedde, who sits on the Norwegian Parliament’s Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee, also confirmed the joint nomination of Trump when contacted by Reuters.
