Largest Newspaper in Minnesota Endorses Ilhan Omar’s Primary Challenger Citing Too Many ‘Ethical Distractions’

The Minnesota Star-Tribune endorsed a primary challengers to Representative Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) and declared that the freshman congresswoman has failed to “unite” her district.  In fact, Omar is a diversionary character.  She’s a liar, a cheater, and she hates America almost as much as she hates Jews.  She’s also a progressive, which makes her an enemy of America as well, since they all want to “fundamentally” change us.

The Star-Tribune is the largest newspaper in Minnesota, and they endorsed Antone Melton-Meaux, a Democratic challenger, over Omar the incumbent, in an editorial on Wednesday. The race for Omar’s reelection has attracted millions of dollars} in an effort to unseat the incumbent with a history of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic rhetoric.

“Melton-Meaux brings a different sensibility to this race, one grounded in helping resolve disputes to move forward — a skill this country is much in need of,” the Star-Tribune says. “Whether it’s health care, criminal justice or affordable housing, Melton-Meaux appears progressive, but pragmatic. While Omar wants to lead a movement, Melton-Meaux seeks to serve the Fifth District.”

The editorial board compared Omar’s push to defund and abolish police departments and ICE and her embrace of a government takeover of the health insurance business against Melton-Meaux’s more “pragmatic” approaches.

“Omar’s 2018 victory launched her into the national spotlight as the first Muslim woman and first refugee elected to Congress. But her time has been marred by missteps, including remarks on Israel widely regarded as anti-Semitic, an outsized number of missed votes, and campaign-finance issues,” the board continued, noting that “Omar has sent more than $1.6 million to her husband’s D.C. political consulting firm, E Street Group, and is herself the target of a Federal Election Commission complaint regarding travel expenses.”

“It is just these kinds of ethical distractions that the Fifth District could do without,” the board said. “In the Editorial Board interview, Omar took little responsibility for her rocky start, instead largely blaming her critics and saying her failing was perhaps in not realizing what a ‘special unicorn’ she would be in Congress.”

The Democratic establishment has largely supported Omar, one of many advantages of incumbency.  It didn’t hurt that they were also terrified of her.  As a member of “The Squad” Omar could have sicked the never-ending-mouth-machine AOC on them.  They also tolerated her, because though they may say publicly they’re not in agreement with her bombastic rhetoric, inside they support her hatred of America along with her lust for power completely.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi endorsed the anti-Semitic bigot on July 13 as funding for Melton-Meaux’s candidacy began to surge.

The Star-Tribune continued: “Both Omar and Melton-Meaux have compelling stories that, in their own ways, are quintessentially American. Omar’s refugee story is well-known. Melton-Meaux is the descendant of American emancipated slaves. His mother grew up picking cotton, and his father used service in Vietnam and the GI bill to put himself through college and lift his family into the middle class. Melton-Meaux rose to become an attorney and mediator who also has worked on foster children’s cases through the Children’s Law Center and dedicated time at the Conflict Resolution Center and College Possible.”

“Melton-Meaux fully grasps the needs of the diverse constituency he hopes to represent, and, if given a chance, is the kind of leader who could unite a fractured district,” the board concluded.

The Squad may soon be losing a member.  Good riddance.

After Pastor Faces Jail For Disobeying Virginia Order – His Church Sues The Governor, Then Barr’s DOJ Sides With Them – Washington News

washingtonews.today

Mary Deanna Janee

Remember when Attorney General William Barr said he would protect our Constitutional rights?

Last week, he said his Department of Justice would be on the lookout for overly strict lockdown measures.

Well, it didn’t take long for Barr’s team to spot one glaring example — they found it in the state of Virginia.

A pastor dared to hold a church service for 16 people on Palm Sunday. And as a result, he was facing a steep fine and possibly even jail time.

However, it seemed like a ridiculous arrest: the church could hold 293 people, and only 16 – properly spaced out – were in attendance.

And the DOJ agrees that it WAS ridiculous.

They’re stepping in to help the church in their battle against Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (via Fox News):

The Justice Department is siding with a Virginia church suing Gov. Ralph Northam after police threatened a pastor with jail time or a $2,500 fine for violating the state’s coronavirus lockdown restrictions by holding a 16-person church service on Palm Sunday.

GOOD!

When police served a summons to Lighthouse Fellowship Church pastor Kevin Wilson, that was a step too far in the eyes of many.

The church quickly leveled a lawsuit against Northam and the state of Virginia. And rightfully so, I say.

Mat Staver, chairman and founder of Liberty Counsel, who is representing the pastor, added:

As important as it is that we stay safe during these challenging times, it is also important for states to remember that we do not abandon all of our freedoms in times of emergency.

Unlawful discrimination against people who exercise their right to religion violates the First Amendment, whether we are in a pandemic or not.

That’s exactly right.

And the good news is, our Department of  Justice is lending their significant influence and power to this battle.

So it looks like DO have allies in Washington, and Barr is true to his word!

They may find many other examples of draconian lockdown orders in the country. Maybe they should take a gander at Michigan, for instance…

But no matter what happens, it’s nice to know that Pastor Wilson and the faithful Virginia residents have a strong ally!

SHARE if you think some lockdown orders have become WAY too strict!
