(Tea Party PAC) – Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has a well earned reputation for being an anti-Semite, has once again decided to play ball with the Democratic Party by jumping on their latest crusade to, for the second time, slander the name of SCOTUS Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Over the weekend, the New York Times ran a piece alleging that an eyewitness saw friends of Kavanaugh’s push his penis into the hand of a female student at a college party.
However, they later got busted for not including the fact that the student in question didn’t recall the incident and had to amend the piece to include this incredibly important piece of information.
As soon as this hit the Internet, folks started demanding that Kavanaugh be impeached, including Omar who said it’s our “Constitutional duty” to do so.
Isn’t that rich? A hardcore, Jew-hating leftist who wants government control of practically everything, suddenly caring about the Constitution?
However, before the Times added what amounted to a walk-back of the new allegation, Democrats such as Omar began lining up for calls for Kavanaugh’s impeachment.
On Sunday she tweeted, “Nothing terrifies this corrupt president more than the idea of Congress upholding the rule of law. We must open impeachment inquiries against Trump *and* Kavanaugh immediately. It’s our constitutional duty”:

Trump blasts calls for impeachment of Brett Kavanaugh after new allegations https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/sep/15/brett-kavanaugh-donald-trump-impeachment-supreme-court-justice?CMP=twt_gu&utm_medium=&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1568556532 …13.4K people are talking about this
Omar has not commented or taken back her tweet as of Monday.
The Times piece was adapted from a forthcoming book by two Times journalists Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly titled The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation.
The walk-back of the allegation was prompted by backlash from conservative media commentators and journalists, led by The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway, who had received an early copy of the book and noted that the book itself said that the alleged victim did not recall the incident.
After the Times acquiesced in an “Editors’ note,” the paper was criticized by the right and the left for omitting the important detail that the alleged female victim did not recall the incident.
MSNBC’s Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough questioned why the Times originally left out that the alleged victim could not recall the episode.
“Everybody makes mistakes,” he said Monday, according to the Washington Examiner. “We were on the phone yesterday asking each other, wait a second, there’s a woman who [Max] Stier claims was abused by Kavanaugh. Has she denied this? Has she claimed this happened? Why is there this glaring omission in the New York Times story?”
“I could not believe the New York Times would write this piece without that information contained in it,” he added.
The Times piece also failed to mention that the person making the new allegation, Max Stier, had served on former President Bill Clinton’s defense team during impeachment proceedings. Kavanaugh had served on independent counsel Kenneth Starr’s team.
Gee, it’s almost like the New York Times has some sort of agenda and narrative they want to push in order to help Democrats gain an upper hand in the federal government and steal more power from the American people.
Which is precisely what they want. The mainstream media these days is all about that propaganda, having forsaken the standards of ethical journalism long ago, trading it for pushing the progressive agenda, which the vast majority of Americans don’t actually want, believing they know what’s better for us than we do.
Omar is just another politician looking to play the game and advance her career, which is why she tows the party line so closely, only daring to come away from it in her boldness to slam Israel.
We have to make sure these folks are shut down come 2020.
