I really do hope this is a forecast of the election results come Aug. 11. I have had my fill of America hating so called elected officials who represent no one but themselves once in office.

Ilhan Omar facing stunning defeat in Democrat primary August 11

MINNEAPOLIS, MN: Rep Ilhan Omar is on the verge of an earth-shattering defeat in the Democrat Congressional primary August 11. Political newcomer Antone Melton-Meaux (Antone For Congress) is the freshman congresswoman’s opponent. Meltone-Meaux raised more than $3 million dollars in the last quarter compared to $471,000 for Ilhan Omar. His record-breaking haul compared to meager fundraising by Omar comes amidst a storm of controversy over her explosive personal affairs and extreme leftwing anti-American radical sentiments.
Melton-Meaux fundraising smashes Omar in her own district.

Melton-Meaux reported having $2 million in cash on hand with 3 weeks to go. The primary for the 5th Congressional district is August 11th. Omar reported having $1.1 million dollars in cash on hand.

More importantly, Melton-Meaux raised $323,310 from within the State of Minnesota while Omar raised just $11, 849. That is staggering. Of that total Melton-Meaux raised $236,921 from the 5th district.

Meanwhile, Ilhan Omar raised just $8000 for the entire quarter from her own congressional district. He raised thirty times the amount of money than she did in both her home district and state.

I'd definitely recommend reading the article before commenting.

I think it's the fact that Antone is an American man, who represents the black community. He ascribes to the label of being a centrist Democrat.

He has a masters degree in Theology. He's Lutheran, he's not on the defundthepolice train. And he actually has experience.

This is what Antone had to say:




“It’s clear that people in Minnesota and the Fifth District are ready for new leadership. Throughout the race, our campaign has consistently raised more money locally than my opponent, one of the strongest indicators of my grassroots support,” said Melton-Meaux in a statement. “People are tired of our politicians shouting at each other and getting nothing done. People need help. They need change and they need real results.”
“I chose to run for Congress, because we have serious inequities in our community and Congresswoman Omar has failed to address those inequities. The people of our district need and deserve a representative who wants to unite people, find common ground, and deliver results to improve the quality of life for all of us.”


Ilhan and her predecessor were and are extremist lefties. I think people may have just finally got tired of that # and actually went out put their money on the table to support someone who is more sane.

My moneys on Omar they need her distraction and hate. Antone's survival time will be short. He will be eliminated.

Normally I would scoff as outside donors are a huge indicator of foolery, however, citing his grassroots support, $323,310 vs $11,849...that's nothing to scoff at and that, in itself is a huge indicator of local support.

Add in large outside donors, you got a real powerhouse to contend with., I think we'll see an upset there and a pivotal loss to, "The Squad".

For some reason, feels like democrats are creating a presidential candidate for the future. The guy looks friendly for voters, not like a crazy radical. I'd keep an eye on him and see what solutions he can offer.

I'll believe it when it happens. I was hoping AoC would be gone, but she's still around. I don't trust the people not to vote Ilhan in again because, well, people haven't shown themselves to be very bright lately.

I really do hope beyond all things that I'm wrong, though, this woman needs to go away.

I hope this is wrong but I suspect it is right. She is the Muslim Brotherhood candidate. But 236K $ to 12K $ funds from within her own district by her opponent who sounds Conservative D is a major indicator. That the candidate is a Conservative D is a rare creature these days. Were did they go? To the Libertarians and R's. There was little reason to stay as the D's have shown their Marxists desires out in the open.

May very well be a wolf in sheep's clothing, but for today it will make me smile.

Omar doesn't support anyone in America except her fellow Somalians. All she's done while in office is say and do anti-American things and is very vocal about that. Not to mention her issues with immigration and fraud that need to be (if they're not already) investigated.

Why?

Between the two of them, they solidify Trump voters far more than $100 million in campaign ads could ever do.

I'm OK with their continual spouting of nonsense, ignorance and non sequiturs.

Not my district but I honestly think this is a good sign. The country needs more moderate politicians at this point. I've had it with the left, right paradigm and the way it's moving to divisive far ends of each political spectrum. We need leaders that can unite and work together despite political affiliations.

I certainly hope so. No one in "The Squad" has the experience necessary to actually perform their responsibilities.

They have had nothing but scandals to attain their positions every single one of them cares more about pursuing personal vendettas than helping out their constituents.

The squad needs to be dismantled.

It would be nice to see Democrats take back control of their party with people who aren't as insane as the people they currently have running the show.

I can't wait to see the Clintons, Pelosi, Biden, and Obama and etc. pass on.

I know one thing. Besides Obama, they're all over the age of 70. Pelosi is like 80.

There are so many dinosaurs in Congress that with just the few Millennials that have been elected into Congress that the average age of will drop a whole ten years. From just above 60 years to just below 50 years.

As someone who has been accused countless times of being alt-right simply for leaving my Libertarian bearings and walking to the back to hang out with the Anarcho-Capitalists I agree.

A major reason for aligning myself with the Anarcho-Capitalists was in direct response to having personally been involved with Anarcho-Socialists/Communists when I was younger.

I went from being a Democrat, to a Bernie supporter when he was running against Obama, and then when I saw that chitshow. When I saw the way that the Obama campaign was being ran like a never ending party, with concerts and lasershows, and in general pandering to the youth to vote in their naivete I knew that it stunk.

Then, in the days of my environmental and social activism days I got disparaged for adopting more conservative views.

Found a home in the Libertarian Party, but after a while. I realized a lot of people were claiming to be Libertarian with no idea of what the Libertarian Party was and it's roots. People wanted to be Libertarian just because they thought it was cool to say that they weren't Republicans or Democrats and they felt that it put the in the political middle.

But it doesn't. Libertarianism is not a centrist thing. It's not even a conservative thing.

Libertarianism exists as a political spectrum just like the rest of politics.

So, when I saw that a lot of so-called Libertarians were actually socialist or ex-Democrats. I left. I didn't want to be a part of something that would give away their rights just to be able to do drugs.

When I expressed my concerns I got a lot of feedback such as "Individual choice," "My body, my right," crap like that.

But when I would bring up the fact that even if you can legally smoke weed or any drug, you will make yourself incapable of legally owning a gun. And if you get caught illegally owning guns then the government takes away a decent chunk of your Constitutional rights.

So, I found a new affiliation with the AnCaps. I went from being an Anarcho-Communist to being an Anarcho-Capitalist.

And that's squarely due to the fact that the middle ground isn't really all there. Things have become so polarized that there has to be a counterweight to the Soyboys and Commies. I don't believe in what the Democrats have become, I've found that most centrists/moderates aren't actually very in the middle at all. They just think they are. I've seen the Libertarian Party become a joke.

AnCaps hold true to what I believe in. Individual rights, the right for self-defense, the rights of free speech, the rights of free travel, calling out the BS from the left.

Honestly, I've found that the AnCaps are more centered and based in reality than the people I've associated with in the past of various political parties. Progress isn't a bad thing.. if done in logical calculated steps. Where those on the left get it wrong is by claiming something is progress, and just forcing onto everyone no matter what the outcome is. Then, blaming everyone and everything else when things go wrong.

God I hope so. Defeating this slime ball will be the real highlight of 2020.

Any way to ensure she doesn't get any sort of long term benefits on the public's dime?

Brilliant post

I think I'd largely reside in the "Anarcho-Capitalist" corner as well. Although the libertarian movement has been co-opted, I always described it as being a-political in the sense that it existed entirely outside the spectrum of typical politics (one group trying to inflict their will on another ultimately by force/threat of force) but I don't think I'm quite right on that either

I basically want to see government provide for the national defense, enforce contracts and engage foreign nations in a way that best suits our business interests. The so called "night watchman" state. I don't believe any group, including Congress, needs to have the ability to inflict its will on the rest of us (no matter how numerous they are) and that there should be an incredibly high bar for passing any law (proving beyond a reasonable doubt its Constitutionally permissible AND showing a real need for the law)

Does anybody think that this is the way elections should be run? The more money, the better the chances?

I do not like Omar at all, and maybe this person is all around a better choice, but why the hell should money even be a motive here to predict?

Is this how politics is in the US?

She could get 10% of the vote and she will still win. Don't people see how this goes now. They will make sure she wins even if she doesn't win.

The fact that her new husband's firm has received almost $1,000,000 from her campaign fund may have donors thinking twice. There has already been ethics complaints made against her.

Can you imagine if she were in office for more than one term, how corrupt this despicable woman would get!!
