Omar Claims She Was Elected to Address the ‘Cruelty of This Administration’

Democrat says she leads with 'moral clarity and courage'

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) (shown above left, beside Meghan McCain) went on a Sunday morning talk show yesterday to claim that she and her freshman colleagues in Congress are “a check and balance to the cruelty of this administration.”

She is a “check and balance”?

Well, who is the “check and balance” for her and her ilk?

This elected lawmaker, from what I understand, committed fraud against our immigration system.

She appears to have married her own brother — and used her campaign money to clear up tax issues.

It sounds like she’s the one who needs someone to check on her crimes.

Omar and her buddies Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) all voted against the decision of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to support the Senate’s version of the $4.6 billion humanitarian aid package passed last week.

Omar: “We were running for office. We said, ‘Send us into the majority so that we can be a check and balance to the cruelty of this administration.’ Now [that] we are in the majority, we are too busy appeasing this administration.”

“I can see the frustration of the American people who are really disappointed that, again, we have people in power who have forgotten the purpose and the reason they were given that privilege. What I am always surprised every time we’re having a discussion in regard to policy is how people will talk about the political reality, and they won’t talk about the human reality of the policies that we are passing,”

“We take an oath, truly, to care for the American people and make sure that we’re furthering policies that are in line with our values. And we often fall short. And I think with the Democratic Party, we’re so busy … trying to appease everyone we end up appeasing no one.”

“I lead with moral clarity and courage, and so for me, it’s easy to make a decision about the particular policies we’re voting on.”

In my view, this individual doesn’t give a whit about the United States. Islam is the complete antithesis of a constitutional republic.

Omar and her Democratic friends are subverting the Constitution and promoting socialism every day.
