Opinion: Ilhan Omar deserves credit not scrutiny!

But the reason I think that many of us knew that this was going to get worse is that we finally had a leader in the White House who publicly says Islam hates us, who fuels hate against Muslims, who thinks it is OK to speak about a faith and a whole community in a way that is dehumanizing, vilifying” (…) “Some people like me know that he understands the consequences. He knows that there are people that he can influence to threaten our lives, to diminish our presence” – Rep. Ilhan Omar on the 10th April 2019

U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar is one of the persons, one of the representatives that represents everything the President of United States isn’t. She represent the ones who came through poverty, immigrated and made a new life in the United States. That is why she is idol and also a figure of amassed power. Because, she is the living proof of the hope and ability of immigrants and refugees in the United States. Everything, this administration is working against and wants to stop.

Rep. Omar has again and again since her time in office, as a Representative from Minnesota. Shown character and courage. Shown force when explaining the misuse of power and the lack of oversight in the role of Israeli investment and diplomatic unity between the American Government and Israeli counterparts. That was called anti-Semitism, when it was really just questioning the powers to be and their affiliation with a foreign force. Still, because of her personality, her religion and her heritage. That became giant issue.

Again, she is under-fire for the same reason. Because of who she is, not because of what she stands for or working towards. No, the political work and her statements are shining examples of the American Dream, of the unity and the diversity of the United States. However, the President and the Republican Party, prefer scaremongering and silencing tactic towards the ones who works for diverse republic. The ones that is actually working for the what the Republic has been known for, to be welcoming and friendly to all religions, creeds and ethnic groups to immigrate there.

She was stating all of this in a manner that wasn’t offensive, wasn’t wrong, but just wanting the United States, to be what it is known for. To let people enter the Republic and try to achieve the American Dream. By following immigration law or the rights as asylum-seekers. That is well-known.

Rep. Omar is an inspiration and someone that gives hope to the world. People are taking things out of context and beating it up. Because she fits as someone you can use as a target. The President and the GOP does it steady with her. Especially since she got the courage to co-sponsor a bill, which attacks and directly stops one of the big executive orders of this presidency. That is why they are attacking her, because she defends the end of the Muslim Ban and the direct ban of entering of certain nationalities.

There is time for a change, there is a time for the equality and justice, not just white supremacy rule, where the fringe ideas became policy. That is what has happen and now that the democrats have control of the House. The Republicans and their control of the Capitol Hill is challenged and sometimes can even hang the Congress.

I’ll stand by Ilhan Omar and her cause, which will change the United States for the better. Peace.

Opinion: Trump’s forged “National Emergency” on the Southern Border!

Emergencies” have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have eroded.” Friedrich Hayek

Not like facts are important for the Republican Party or the GOP, they have been swallowed in the daily lies of the President and his Administration. President Donald J. Trump is a not only a serial liar in Chief, but also the sort of man that manufactures crisis to his benefits. At least, the President tries to do it. At a phase that is getting into stupid levels.

President Trump have in today’s White House statement ‘President Donald J. Trump’s Border Security Victory’ said: “NATIONAL EMERGENCY ON OUR BORDER: The President is using his clear authority to declare a national emergency as allowed under the National Emergencies Act” (…) “ADDRESSING THE CRISIS AT HAND: President Trump is taking the necessary steps to address the crisis at our Southern Border and stop crime and drugs from flooding into our Nation” (White House, 15.02.2019).

As the President does this and claims this problem, as he wants to use illegitimate measures against something that is not existing and especially not to the extent he claims. Because, the reality is that the numbers game are showing a decline of immigration during the latests year.

The U.S. Border Patrol at the Southwest Border Sectors has shown a steady decline in the apprehension of illegal aliens on the border. Between the 1990 to 2001, there was over a 1 million aliens crossing the borders. For two years, it was just over 900.00 between 2002-2003. While again between 2003 to 2005, there was over 1 million aliens captured again. By the time of 2009, there was apprehended less than 500,000 on the border. By the time of 2017, it was down to 303,000 who was apprehended. Therefore, the numbers are already significantly declining and that was even happening in the first whole year of the Trump Administration. Still, he has spawn this idea of a border wall and need. Will change the pattern and the crossing of illegal aliens.

So, when the President in his statement even claims the arrest of 260,000 in the last two fiscal years. That even proves how fake this National Emergency is. If it had been as in the 1990s or even 00s. Than, the numbers was striking and as high as they ever been. Now, they are lower and showing that the President are just using his Executive Powers just for his own means. Not to make a better republic, nor justifying it. As, the ones who was President during the 1990s like Bill Clinton had a much bigger issue with this, than President Trump ever has. Also, the first term of George W. Bush was even worse than now. Still, the others tackled this differently.

However, none of the other mentioned President was spreading the message of the Alt-Right, the White Supremacists or being irrational in the office. That is just the way this man is. He is playing another con-game and thinking he can win. He is thinking he can win over the forged, the fake and use emergency powers to extend his will for a border wall. Against problems that is not there. So, he can fight ghosts and make his monument of his Presidency. Even if the real monument of his Presidency, is that he faked and didn’t make it. He has just weaken the state and the ability for the United States to be trusted.

President Trump is again showing how ignorant, how blatantly destructive he is. Fabricating a problem. Just like the President tried to fabricate a problematic migration caravan during the recent election last year. But he has not been kicking and screaming about that of late. That, because it isn’t a real problem and seeking asylum isn’t illegal. President Trump own family is filled with migrants and his own wives are it too. So, he should be a bit more grateful about that. Apparently, his arrogance and little mind isn’t able to think of that.

That is why he is faking it, until his making it. Peace.
