The Walls Finally May Be Closing in on Ilhan Omar

by Thomas Lifson
American Thinker

There is ample reason to suspect that Rep. Ilhan Omar has committed multiple frauds. Scott Johnson of Powerline, a retired attorney, has been covering the freshman House member ever since her run for the Minnesota state Legislature, and has been among the most active investigators of suspicions that she committed immigration fraud by legally marrying her brother in order to get him into the United States. Yesterday, he wrote about the genesis of his suspicions:

A few days after I started writing about Ilhan Omar on Power Line in August 2016 — after she had won the primary for the DFL state legislative endorsement — I was contacted by a source who agreed to discuss his knowledge of Omar’s family with me. At our meeting he told me that Ahmed Nur Said Elmi — Omar’s legal husband, so to speak, as of that date — was Omar’s brother and that she had married him for fraudulent purposes.

And Omar herself entered the United States under an assumed identity:

Rent Control: A History of Failure

by Gregory Bresiger

Governments can and do try to fix prices, but history tells us it never works.

From the price-control dikats of the Roman Empire’s Diocletian, to the wage and price controls of President Richard Nixon, governments have tried and failed.

The historian Edward Gibbon said the Roman Empire imploded owing to economic disasters and less to barbarians at the gate. More recently, President Nixon imposed wage and price controls before the 1972 elections. He was re-elected when they seemed to be working. However, owing to the Watergate scandal, he wasn’t around when his price control scheme failed and dragged down millions of Americans in the disastrous decade-long horror show called stagflation.

Is California About to Get Hit by a Hurricane for the Very First Time in U.S. History?

by Michael Snyder
End of the American Dream

In the entire history of our country, a hurricane has never made landfall in the state of California. So if such a thing actually happened, it would be considered to be an extremely unusual event. Well, right now there are three very dangerous tropical storms swirling in the eastern Pacific Ocean. Tropical Storm Kiko is not expected to be a serious threat to make landfall, but Tropical Storm Lorena and Tropical Storm Mario “are expected to become hurricanes by Friday as they approach the Mexican coast”. Tropical Storm Lorena is the more immediate threat, and the latest forecast is projecting that it will reach Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula by Saturday. If it maintains hurricane strength and continues to ride up the west coast, it is entirely possible that we could see something that we have never seen before. Most forecasters don’t want to talk too much about it yet, because it truly would be an unprecedented event, but there really is a chance that California could get hit by a hurricane for the very first time in U.S. history.

How the Houthis Overturned the Chessboard

by Pepe Escobar
The Saker

The Yemeni Shiite group’s spectacular attack on Abqaiq raises the distinct possibility of a push to drive the House of Saud from power

We are the Houthis and we’re coming to town. With the spectacular attack on Abqaiq, Yemen’s Houthis have overturned the geopolitical chessboard in Southwest Asia – going as far as introducing a whole new dimension: the distinct possibility of investing in a push to drive the House of Saud out of power.

Blowback is a bitch. Houthis – Zaidi Shiites from northern Yemen – and Wahhabis have been at each other’s throats for ages. This book is absolutely essential to understand the mind-boggling complexity of Houthi tribes; as a bonus, it places the turmoil in southern Arabian lands way beyond a mere Iran-Saudi proxy war.

National Poll: Elizabeth Warren Takes Commanding Lead Over Joe Biden

by Hannah Bleau

Top tier candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is leading the Democrat field, according to a Civiqs/DataProgress poll taken after the third Democrat debate in Houston, Texas.

The survey interviewed 1,219 likely Democrat primary voters following the Houston debate on September 13-16, 2019, and asked, “If you consider yourself a Democrat, who is your first choice for the Democratic nominee for president in 2020?”

The post-debate poll found Warren leading the pack, six points ahead of Joe Biden (D) with 30 percent support, gaining two percent following her Houston debate performance. Biden, who has been leading the crowded field in the vast majority of national Democrat primary polls, fell to second place with 24 percent support, followed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) with 14 percent support, Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) with seven percent support, and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) with six percent support.

Ben Hunt: Prepare to Get Burned

Society is pretending its actions don’t have consequences. It’s badly mistaken.

by Adam Taggart
Chris Martenson’s Peak Prosperity

History teaches us that there is no free lunch, reminds Dr. Ben Hunt, publisher of

And science informs us that even the most simple systems become nearly impossible to predict or control with 100% precision as time and variables change.

But our society today is ignoring these lessons. It’s betting that the increasingly excessive distortions required to keep the status quo continuing will succeed, and come at no cost.

That’s a losing bet, warns Hunt:

Society burns itself on a really hot stove every three or four generations.

I think we’re at that point where the Millennials coming of age who are having to wrestle with what the Baby Boomers have done to the world. They’re going to end up burning themselves on this hot stove. The hot stove of looking to government as the answer for everything that ails you. Of looking towards your political leaders as somehow able to provide never-ending exponential growth in comfort and standard of living.

North America’s Bird Population is Collapsing – Nearly 3 Billion Birds Have Been Wiped Out Since 1970

by Michael Snyder
The Economic Collapse Blog

All around us, our world is literally in a state of collapse, but most people don’t seem to care. I spend much of my time writing about the inevitable collapse of our economic and financial systems, but they are only one part of the story. These days, millions upon millions of us are spending countless hours in this “virtual world” that we have created, and that is preventing many of us from understanding what is really going on in “the real world”. Where I live, I can literally keep the doors wide open for hours without worrying about bugs coming in, because insect populations are disappearing at a pace that is frightening. They are calling it “the insect apocalypse”, and some scientists are warning that they could all be gone in 100 years. And this dramatic decline in the insect population is one of the main reasons why North America’s bird population is collapsing. In the old days, I remember the singing of birds often greeting me in the morning, but these days I am never awakened by birds. That might make sense if I lived right in the middle of a major city, but I don’t. I live in a very rural location, and I do see birds out here, but not nearly as many as I would expect.
