Democrats Change 181 Year-Old Rule To Allow Ilhan Omar To Wear Hijab In The House…

For 181 years, the U.S. House of Representatives has imposed a ban on its members wearing head coverings. With Ilhan Omar, one of the first Muslim women to be elected to Congress, set to take her oath of office in January, that rule—which would have prohibited her wearing her customary headscarves or the hijab—is slated to change.

 

The change was proposed jointly by Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, Incoming Rules Chairman Jim McGovern and member-elect Ilhan Omar as part of a larger overhaul package.

 

When Omar is sworn in next year, she will become the first federal legislator to wear a religious headscarf. Her arrival will mark a number of other “firsts” as well. The Minnesota Democrat will be the first Somali-American in Congress and the first woman of color to represent her state in Washington. She’ll be joined by fellow Midwestern Democrat, Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib, as the first two Muslim women in Congress.

 

Hats of any kind have been banned from the House floor since 1837.

 

The hat ban is included in the rules of the current Congress in a section on comportment. “During the session of the House, a Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner may not wear a hat or remain by the Clerk’s desk during the call of the roll or the counting of ballots,” the section reads. “A person on the floor of the House may not smoke or use a mobile electronic device that impairs decorum. The Sergeant-at-Arms is charged with the strict enforcement of this clause.”

 

Back in 2010, Florida Democrat Frederica Wilson tried to fight the ban on hats. She has a large collection of colorful and sequined cowboy hats that she wanted to wear while serving in the House.

 

“Hats are what I wear. People get excited when they see the hats. Once you get accustomed to it, it’s just me. Some people wear wigs, or high heel shoes or big earrings or pins. This is just me,” Wilson told the Miami Herald in 2010.

 

 

Well, she has already learned how to lie about Democrats…

        Squeaky wheel gets the grease. I’ve been trying since 2009 as a Tea Party Patriots local coordinator to herd like-minded patriotic conservative Americans. It’s been like herding cats. Conservatives are by nature independent, self-sufficient, prideful of not organizing, and anti social. These traits will cause conservatives to become extinct. What’s happening is simply natural selection. I’m going down fighting by committing time and money to the cause, BUT there are not enough of my kind showing up to town halls, rally’s, marches etc.

    The reason I focus so much on Ilhan Omar is the undeniable fact that she married her brother in order to commit immigration fraud.

    —-

    In 2002, Omar, then just 19, swore out a marriage license with a man named Ahmed Aden. They write that they were married by the Muslim Church, but were having trouble getting housing and insurance. Hennepin County has no marriage certificate or final record that legalized the marriage.

    Then, in 2009, she at least on paper legally marries a man by the name of Ahmed Nur Said Elmi. The conservative Power Line blog alleges that this is her brother — a potential sham marriage to help the brother with immigration into the United States. Fox 9 cannot independently confirm the allegation.

    In recent interviews, Ilhan Omar has said her husband is a third man — Ahmed Hirsi — the father of the couple’s 3 children. We could not find any divorce records in Ilhan Omar’s name in Minnesota. As for the man she publicly refers to as her husband, one source in the community tells Fox 9 that Ilhan Omar’s current marriage is what you would call a “traditional” or “community” marriage — one not necessarily legalized with paperwork at the county or state level.

    Ilhan Omar’s campaign wouldn’t provide any documentation or explanation for the marriage licenses on file.

    This is just the first step of the new generation in continuing to ‘fundamentally change’ America which ovomit started. The problem isn’t just this law being changed. What’s deeply troubling is they have now allowed/encouraged a known criminal mooslime to take office, changed an almost 200 year old law to accomodate the furtherance of the mooslime religion/cult beliefs, and will make further concessions in the name of diversity for mooslime beliefs now that the door has been cracked. If this isn’t stopped, our government in whole will become the vehicle for advancing the islam takeover of America. In just a few election cycles, the mooslimes will hold a majority of seats and then the judiciary will be replaced. They will change all the laws to allow it and also begin to ban non-mooslimes from holding office at all. Don’t think they won’t or can’t. It’s their life goal and if no lawful way works then look no further than Egypt for a modern day example of what happens when it isn’t nipped in the bud. And what they had to do to eradicate it from their government once they allowed it to happen.

      The big mistake happened in 1965 with the passage of the immigration reform act which was pushed by the perfidious alcoholic sexual abuser Ted Kennedy.

      The callow & shallow man, who killed a young blonde girl in 1969, was ONLY was elected because his brother was President. The bill was ONLY passed because, you know, pity for his woes when his brother died and a cowardly president wanted to show how buddy buddy he was with the dead President’s kin folk.

      That bill caught up with us. It’s why Al Gore, who sexually abused a young female masseuse, almost became President in 2000. It’s why a pot smoking gay man, 2 years removed from being a state senator (!!!) became President in 2008. It’s why one of histories most vile power hungry beasts won the popular vote total in 2016.

      The mistakes were already made. It’s too late to fix. The numbers are against us.

    I have said this before and I state it again. This is a spiritual battle. Most in our country don’t walk with the Lord.
    Mat 11:28-29
    28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

    – Have you stop you labour of trying to be God? Have you put your trust and Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ? Is the burden of your sin final enough?

    29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

    – If you have stop from the labour, do you take his yoke and read the bible and learn of him. Do you know the humility of Jesus Christ? Are you becoming more humble by walking with him?

    Most can’t answer these questions in the affirmative because they don’t walk with the Lord. The result of this is they walk in foolish pride. It our sin that is destroy our nation. It is full of idols and we won’t turn to the living God and pray. So we receive nothing of what is needed.

    You can keep lying to yourself but it won’t work. We must repent and turn as a nation back to God.

      We need a turning in mass of our men to repentance and faith is Jesus Christ. To a holy living and a turning away from the idolatrous lifestyle Americans have been living. With live for things and not God. Our lives have NO meaning. What are these things going to mean on the day of judgement? NOTHING the will be burned up.
      1 Corinthians 3:
      11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
      12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
      13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.
      14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
      15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

      Do you not realize that Christ didn’t merely die on the cross for our sins? He died on the cross for our sins so that we could return to God and walk with him. Have you responded to his call of grace? Will you come to cross and die so that you can live with God forever? Jesus Christ defeated death be raised up on the third day to live forevermore. Don’t you want that life? A life of abundance in him.

    Regardless of her political views, or the validity of her citizenship, or whether we like her, religious freedom is one of the cornerstones of our republic. That should mean any rep can wear a cross, a star of David, a satanic pentagram, a Sikh turban or a hijab in the House chambers. As long as it is a custom of the wearer’s religion, it should be allowed. That should, however, rule out wigs and hairpieces (/s).
