OK, for once, I actually agree with Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN). In an interview that ware published on Friday, she tore into the usurper, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah, claiming that his "hope and change" campaign was nothing more than an illusion and that he was nothing more than a "pretty face" who got "away with murder."
She cited things we have known for some time, like the caging of children at the southern border, as well as the "droning of countries around the world," as we have pointed out also. Much of that droning came amid questions regarding congressional authorization and in some instances killing innocent US citizens who were not engaged in anything criminal.
“We can’t be only upset with Trump,” the freshman congresswoman told Politico Magazine.
“His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies," she added. "They just were more polished than he was."
“And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore," Omar continued. "We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.”
However, as soon as the interview was published, Omar attempted to walk back her comments in an attempt to paint Trump as the culprit, not Obama.
Clearly, she was referencing both men.
“Exhibit A of how reporters distort words. I’m an Obama fan! I was saying how [President] Trump is different from Obama, and why we should focus on policy not politics,” she tweeted.

Policy and not politics? Is that why she is a "fan" of Obama and not a "fan" of Trump? She isn't playing politics? Give me a break!
No, Ms. Omar, no one distorted your words, you took to task both men, and rightfully so, but now that it painted her beloved "messiah" as the bad guy, she wanted it to look like it's just the system Obama worked in, but not necessarily have people view that about President Trump.
I have no problem calling out both men. I have often said that Obama engaged in unconstitutional foreign policy, including using the military without congressional approval, but neither he, his former defense secretary nor his generals were ever held accountable for their clear violations of the Constitution.
Trump has engaged in similar behavior with two missile strikes coming a year apart on the nation of Syria in response to alleged gas attacks without any evidence of the Assad government being involved. In fact, Trump's own defense secretary declared there was no evidence that Assad attacked. Yet, we spent millions of dollars tossing missiles into a country that had not attacked us, and turns out, we couldn't even prove they attacked their own people.
Granted, I question Omar's motives considering her Islamic jihad ties with designated terror groups like Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), but the point is a valid one on this front and it spans both parties. For decades the military industrial complex and globalists have infiltrated our government and we have been the tool in the Middle East to not bring about peace, but dismantle quite a bit of it in the name of the War on Terrorism.
Frankly, while I'm not a friend of Islam and long to see the death cult dead and buried, I have no ill will towards individual Muslims. In fact, I wish they would embrace Jesus the Christ, but I digress.
The war and devastation we have brought in much, not all, of that region is without any constitutional warrant.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
