Why would a new member of Congress hate America so much?

(Friday blog)

I found the short video below interesting.

In the video newly elected member of Congress Ilhan Omar engaged in a nasty exchange with special envoy to Venezuela Elliott Abrams, accusing the diplomat of being a liar and pressing him on his involvement in the Iran-Contra affair and killings in Central America during the Reagan administration. She also appears to be accusing him of supporting genocide.

Abrams was named the special envoy to Venezuela last month, shortly after the Trump administration recognized opposition leader Juan Guaidó as the country’s legitimate president. The move came as part of an increasing effort to pressure embattled President Nicolás Maduro amid an economic and humanitarian crisis in Venezuela.

Wednesday’s contentious exchange was the latest high-profile moment for Omar, in what she has just this week, come under bipartisan scrutiny after issuing multiple tweets on Sunday that were condemned as anti-Semitic.

Abrams is a highly educated and very experienced diplomat who has served in a variety of foreign policy positions for several U.S. Presidents. He received his B.A. from Harvard College, a Masters degree in international relations from the London School of Economics, and his J.D. from Harvard Law School. During George W. Bush’s first term in office, Abrams was appointed as Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director on the National Security Council for Near East and North African Affairs. In Bush’s second term, he was given the job of deputy national security adviser. Abrams first came to national prominence in the Reagan administration in the 1980s, where he was Assistant Secretary of State for Human Rights, and later Assistant Secretary for Inter-American Affairs. He is currently a senior fellow for Middle Eastern studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. On January 25, 2019, he was appointed by President Trump as Special Envoy on Venezuela.

I’m not sure what qualifications and experience (if any) Ms Omar has to her name.

It’s interesting how Abrams reacts with calm and dignity while the (IMHO) repulsive Ilhan Omar  spews out her loathing of the US. She is meant to be using her time to question Abrams on behalf of American voters. Instead she just uses it to insult him

Ilhan Omar seems to be typical of the violently anti-American, anti-white and anti-semitic garbage that the historically-ignorant, virtue-signalling, libtard snowflake generation have elected into the US Government. And, as far as I understand, Ms Omar has called for funding for the US Department of Homeland Security and ICE (Immigration and Customs Control) to be drastically cut. I think we can imagine why she would do that?

    BBC Producer’s Syria Bombshell: Douma “Gas Attack” Footage “Was Staged”

    Now approaching nearly a year after the April 7, 2018 alleged chemical attack in Douma, Syria — which the White House used as a pretext to bomb Syrian government facilities and bases throughout Damascus — a BBC reporter who investigated the incident on the ground has issued public statements saying the “Assad sarin attack” on Douma was indeed “staged”.

    Riam Dalati is a well-known BBC Syria producer who has long reported from the region. He shocked his nearly 20,000 twitter followers on Wednesday, which includes other mainstream journalists from major outlets, by stating that after a “six month investigation” he has concluded, “I can prove without a doubt that the Douma Hospital scene was staged.”

    I was a bit perplexed as to how an obvious Muslim was elected to the US Congress and checked her out. She’s a Somali who the USA granted citizenship to when she was 14 and her family appealed for that privilege as refugees. And this is the thanks they (the US) got. She clearly got elected because so many Somali refugees gathered in the area of Minneapolis she represents, that it’s now called ‘little Mogadishu.’ And of course, the main activity in that area is crime, that the Somalis take to like ducks to water. It doesn’t take long to find items like this regarding their conduct: “They came to the U.S. as supposed ’refugees,’ but now it has been discovered that a number of Somali immigrants are stealing hundreds of millions in American welfare money that they are literally shipping back to Africa stuffed in suitcases. Worse, the cash is going to fund the various Islamist terror armies there.” Granting citizenship to those from barbaric Muslim countries is akin to a healthy person deliberately injecting themselves with AIDS or cancer.

    Who needs enemies when you have UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson insulting the Chinese.

    China Dramatically Cancels UK Trade Talks Hours After Defense Secretary’s Bellicose Speech.

    UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson has been caught at the center of a huge row with China after he threatened to send a warship to the Pacific. In response Chinese Vice Premier Hu Chunhua cancelled scheduled trade talks with Britain’s finance minister Philip Hammond just “hours” after the remarks, Reuters revealed Thursday.

    The talks had been set for the coming weekend, with reports specifically noting Chunhua canceled the meeting “in protest at Williamson’s speech on Monday.”

    During those remarks the defense secretary said that the UK must “show [China] the high price of aggressive behavior.” He also spoke of the British military boosting its “lethality” —however, ironically it appears Britain has actually suffered the immediate repercussions.
