Rep. Ilhan Omar is so upset at the death of the Middle East’s number one bad guy, General Qassem Soleimani, that she vowed to “step in and stop” President Donald Trump. But that’s not all. Omar also is pushing a bogus conspiracy theory about why Trump ordered the death of the Quds Force General, and patriotic Americans utterly destroyed her. You’ll love this.
Ilhan Omar has never hidden her affinity to Middle Eastern bad guys like the newly deceased General Qassem Soleimani. In her eyes, they are doing the work needed to bring America and Israel to its heels. We have seen example after example of Omar’s comments on 9/11 and the Islamic State, and her hatred toward American supremacy and Israel’s existence, to know where her allegiance lies.
So, it wasn’t a shock when she sounded off against President Trump after he ordered the killing of General Qassem Soleimani, a man responsible for more American deaths than anyone else in the Middle East.
Soleimani was named major general of the Quds Force in 1998 and ran it until his death. The Quds Force has no equivalent in the U.S. but has been described as “analogous to a combined CIA and Special Forces,” according to an article in the New Yorker back in 2013. The Quds Force, which is estimated to consist of about 20,000 personnel, has been designated a terrorist group by the U.S. since 2007, according to reports.
The New Yorker article also described Soleimani as “ the single most powerful operative in the Middle East today,” citing former CIA officer John Maguire.
Unfortunately, the Minnesota Congresswoman doesn’t agree Soleimani should have been killed, and she shows her true colors with this tweet: “So what if Trump wants war, knows this leads to war and needs the distraction? Real question is, will those with congressional authority step in and stop him? I know I will.”
It’s also important to note Omar’s tweet was in response to a post claiming: “The question is this – as reports suggest, did America just assassinate, without any congressional authorization, the second most powerful person in Iran, knowingly setting off a potential massive regional war?”

It may come as a shock to the Minnesota Congresswoman that her fellow Muslims in the Middle East do not agree with her and are celebrating Soleimani’s death. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo posted: “Iraqis — Iraqis — dancing in the street for freedom; thankful that General Soleimani is no more.”

The Somalia refugee turned United States Congresswoman is also pushing this bogus conspiracy theory that President Donald Trump ordered the death of Soleimani as a “distraction” to drown out the news surrounding his impeachment. This is what politicos call “wag the dog” — attention purposely being diverted from something of greater importance to something of lesser importance.
That’s utterly preposterous.
Former President Bill Clinton used a “wag the dog” approach to his impeachment. However, Trump has no reason to engage in this move. In fact, the first 48 hours after the Democrats voted to impeach Trump, the president took in $10 million dollars to his re-election campaign from patriotic Americans.
Another huge reason Trump ordered Soleimani’s death has to do with the facts Omar refuses to acknowledge.
The Defense Department said Soleimani “was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region.” It also accused Soleimani of approving the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad earlier this week.
President Donald Trump, who was vacationing on his estate in Palm Beach, Florida, sent out a tweet of an American flag as the world learned of Soleimani’s death. We’re sure Ilhan Omar did not like this one bit:

Omar also got destroyed by Americans who see right through her blatant lies and sanctimonious rhetoric.
“YOU are an IDIOT! Go back and sit down with the don’t know squat squad,” tweeted Penni Basse.

“Ilhan is distraught that her brethren – a blood-thirsty Islamic terrorist was killed. Shocker,” tweeted David Wohl, who is a campaign surrogate of President Trump.

“NEWS FLASH: Killing Terrorists is a good thing. You don’t simply sit back and allow Terrors to engage in acts of Terrorism the way #Obama did in Benghazi,” tweeted John Betts.

“Absolutely disgraceful. Think of the American troops killed and mangled at the hands of this monster. Resign,” tweeted Jack Posobiec, former Intel officer and contributor to One America News Network.

Sen. Ted Cruz, (R-TX), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, lauded President Trump for ordering the strike, calling the move “long-overdue justice.”
“The end of Qasem Soleimani is welcome and long-overdue justice for the thousands of Americans killed or wounded by his Iranian-controlled forces across the Middle East, and for the hundreds of thousands of Syrians and Iraqi Sunnis ethnically cleansed by his militias,” Cruz said in a statement. “It is also long-overdue justice for our Israeli allies who have suffered decades of terrorism at the hands of Hezbollah terrorists commanded by his IRGC Quds Force. The message to all those who mean harm to America is loud and clear.”
Senator Cruz sums it up best, and Ilhan Omar has once again shown her true colors don’t run red, white and blue.
