-Lurid Crime Tales-
Ilhan Omar's Arrest Record & What Do You Know, She's Been Arrested & Jailed
[Right Wing News] State Rep. Ilhan Omar was arrested in 2013 for trespassing and booked at Hennepin County Jail "to prevent further criminal conduct," according to a newly uncovered police report.

The incident took place on January 18, 2013 following an event at the Minneapolis Convention Center featuring former Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud. The Somali president was set to stay the night at the Hotel Ivy, causing large groups of Somalis to follow the presidential convoy to the hotel, including Omar.

According to the police report, hotel staff requested police assistance in clearing the lobby, saying that anyone without a hotel room key was not welcome on the premises and needed to leave immediately. The officer handling the incident said the majority of people who were asked to leave were compliant. However, Omar, when approached, was "argumentative" and refused to leave.

"As she stood her ground and refused to leave I took hold of her left elbow to escort her from the lobby. Omar then pulled away from me stating, ’Don’t put your hands on me!’ Others in her group complied and began walking toward the front entry/exit door as I ordered and I managed to coax Omar out with them," the police report reads.

Ten minutes after the original encounter, the officer reports finding Omar seated in a different area of the lobby. According to the officer’s account, Omar "remained defiant" as he informed her that she would be arrested for trespassing if she didn’t leave.

Since she refused to comply with orders, the officer arrested Omar. The officer reached for Omar’s left arm to get her to stand so she could be handcuffed, but she pulled away. The officer handcuffed her while she stayed seated in the hotel lobby chair.

"Omar was booked at [Hennepin County Jail] as I felt it was likely that she would fail to respond to a citation and she also demonstrated that she was going to continue her criminal behavior," the officer wrote.

Georgia Democratic Lawmaker Appears To Be Caught Lying About Alleged Racist Encounter
[DAILYCALLER] A Georgia state lawmaker appears to have been caught lying about her allegation that she was told to “go to back to where you came from” by a white customer in an Atlanta grocery store.

On Friday, Erica Thomas, a Democrat, alleged that a “white man” called her a “lazy son of a b*tch” and told her to “go back” to where she came from.

On Sunday, Eric Sparkes stepped forwarded and claimed he was the man that Thomas was referring to in the grocery store. He denied ever making any racially charged insults towards Thomas and said he only called her a “lazy b*itch” because she had too many items in the express checkout lane.

Sparkes told reporters that he is a Democrat and a Hispanic American who vehemently opposes President Trump. He added that Thomas was only doing this to help further her political career.

Later, Thomas appeared to walk back her claims saying that Sparkes may not have exactly told her to go back to her country.

Marianne Williamson Asked White People to Apologize to Black People for Past ‘Evils’
[BREITBART] Prior to announcing her candidacy for the Democrat nomination for president, spiritual author Marianne Williamson asked white people at an event to apologize to the black people in attendance for the "evils" perpetrated against black people throughout United States history.
The Dems continue their shift to become the anti-white party.
Williamson, whose “prayer” came during her “Love America Tour” at the Unity of Houston Church in 2018, asked the white people to hold hands with nearby black attendees.

As the audience repeated her every word, sentence by sentence, Williamson said:

As I speak, I am going to ask the white Americans in the room to please repeat after me. On behalf of myself and on behalf of my country, to you and all African Americans, from the beginning of our nation’s history, in honor of your ancestors and on behalf of your children please hear this from my heart. I apologize. Please forgive us. With this prayer I acknowledge the depth of the evils that have been perpetrated against black people in America. From slavery to lynchings to white supremacist laws to the denial of voting rights to all the ways, both large and small, all of the evil, all of them wrong, for all the opression, and all of the injustices, I apologize. Please forgive us.”

And someone please sort out the blacks that came to the US after the civil war and those whose families had slaves to help clarify things.

The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.

Booker says Trump uses racial language
[CBSNEWS] New Jersey Sen. Cory Spartacus Booker
U.S. Senator-for-Life from Noo Joisey, formerly the mayor of Newark. Booker is a candidate for president in 2020, running on a platform of Make America Newark. He once wrote an essay on how to grope babes. He is noted for having an imaginary friend named T-Bone...
, "fiercely heterosexual",
one of the two dozen Democrats competing for the party's presidential nomination, said President Trump is weaponizing racial animus to sow division in the country for his own political gain.
Nothing like a little home-grown projection.
"He is somebody that is using race like a weapon to divide our country against itself," Booker said on "Face the Nation" Sunday. "He's been using it since before he became president as a way to accelerate his gaining of political power."

The New Jersey Democrat was referring to the president's recent attacks against four progressive politicians of color. Last week, Mr. Trump posted a series of racist tweets suggesting that Reps. Ilhan Omar
...Somali-American Dem representative from Minnesota. She is apparently married to her brother and may be her own grandmaw on her mother's side...
of Minnesota, Alexandria Boom Boom Ocasio-Cortez
Dem represntative from da Bronx in Noo Yawk and leader of the Mean Girl Caucus in Congress. One of the Great Minds of the 21st Century, she is known as much for her innaleck as for her dance moves. She is all in favor of socialism, even though she's fuzzy on the details...
of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan should "go back" to the "totally broken and crime infested places from which they came."

Only Omar was born outside the U.S. Pressley, who is African American, was born in Ohio. Ocasio-Cortez, of Puerto Rican heritage, was born in New York. Tlaib, the daughter of Paleostinian immigrants colonists, was born in bankrupt, increasingly impoverished, reliably Democrat, Detroit
... ruled by Democrats since 1962. A city whose Golden Age included the Purple Gang...
. Omar, a naturalized U.S. citizen, was born in Somalia, a country she and her family fled from because of a civil war.

Booker said the president's controversial remarks ‐ which were formally condemned by a resolution passed by the Democratic-led House ‐ are reminiscent of tactics used by politicians throughout American history to stir up xenophobia and racism for political gain. He compared them to anti-Irish tropes in the 19th century and the rhetoric of segregationists during the Civil Rights era.

"The language he uses is actually language, tired old tropes, that have been used by demagogues all throughout our country's history," Booker said, adding later. "This president is yet another sad chapter."

Elijah Cummings says his constituents are "scared" of Trump
[AXIOS] House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings
...Representative-for-life from Maryland, representing half of Baltimore City, which makes his district ultra-safe, and most of Howard County, which is out-populated by the city. His shiny pate is the reason we pronounce the city name Baldymore. Cummings' politix are so liberal they're tedious, nor is he any more honest than the next seedy professional pol...
(D-Md.) said on ABC's "This Week" that there's "no doubt" that President Trump is a racist and that for the first time in his 37 years in public service, he has constituents telling him they're "scared of their leader."

CUMMINGS: "George, no matter where I go, what I'm hearing over and over again from my constituents is, "Please save our democracy. Please save our country." And you know something else they say, George? They say "I'm scared." I have never, in my total of 37 years in public service, ever heard a constituent say they were scared of their leader."

Why it matters: Cummings, the chairman of the powerful House Oversight Committee, has been reluctant to endorse impeachment. Yet he has not hesitated to attack President Trump as a racist who evokes fear in his own constituents, raising questions about when the Democratic Party's moral bar for impeachment will outweigh the potentially harmful political ramifications.
