In the lobby of my hotel, the Young Jewish Conservatives are meeting tonight, and the national media are nowhere in sight because of course, this doesn’t fit the liberal narrative which is that (a) Trump is Hitler and (b) Republicans are Nazis. So many things about CPAC are beyond the perimeter of what the media want to report that if you really want to know what’s going on here, you have to either be here, or read my blog.



Jacob Wohl, Jack Burkman and Laura Loomer held a press conference today that the media will do their best to ignore:

Rep. Ilhan Omar “married her brother and she defrauded the United States,” Jacob Wohl said Thursday afternoon in a press conference at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center. Announcing the result of a recent investigation by the website Culttture that took a crew of conservative activists to the freshman Democrat’s Minnesota district, Wohl presented the findings of their investigation in an eight-page report concluding that Omar’s marriage to her brother, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, was “part of a nefarious attempted immigration scheme… in the service of two federal felonies: immigration fraud and student loan fraud.”
Omar is one of the most prominent new members of Congress, elected as the first Somali-American as Nancy Pelosi’s Democrats recaptured the House after eight years of GOP control. The latest issue of Rolling Stone features a cover photo of Pelosi posing with Omar, New York Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, and Connecticut Rep. Jahana Hayes, hailing them as “Women Shaping the Future.”
Wohl appeared with Internet personality Laura Loomer and Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman in the lobby of the Gaylord, where they were surrounded by a scrum of reporters and activists attending the 46th annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Wohl and Loomer have been banned from Twitter, and contend that their banishments were retaliation for their support of President Trump and their efforts to expose Omar’s anti-Semitic extremism. In her case, Loomer said Twitter succumbed to a pressure campaign by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which has connections to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. “Why is a designated foreign terrorist organization lobbying with Twitter, an American social media company, to ban a Jewish-American conservative journalist who is exposing the anti-Semitism, the fraud and the terrorism ties that Ilhan Omar has?” Loomer said at the press conference. “It’s egregious.” . . .

You can read the rest at The American Spectator.

Other reporters were at this press conference. Where are their stories? Given Omar’s prominence, isn’t this newsworthy? Perhaps some might say that they don’t believe what Wohl and Loomer say they’ve found. OK, fine. Call Omar’s office and get a statement from her denouncing them, but if you’re so convinced that Omar is innocent, why not investigate the story yourself and prove she did nothing wrong?

But liberal journalists never investigate Democrats, so Omar can pal around with Hamas and CNN can’t be bothered to notice, whereas by contrast if any Republican got within handshake distance of an anti-Semite, it would be front page news in the New York Times and 24/7 on CNN. In other words, liberals aren’t actually against anti-Semitism; they only pretend to be against it when it’s useful to their partisan agenda as a means of smearing conservatives.
