New documents revisit questions about Rep. Ilhan Omar’s marriage history

A state probe of campaign finance violations showed that Rep. Ilhan Omar filed federal taxes in 2014 and 2015 with her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, while legally married to but separated from Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.

New investigative documents released by a state agency have given fresh life to lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to skirt immigration laws.

Omar has denied the allegations in the past, dismissing them as “baseless rumors” first raised in an online Somali politics forum and championed by conservative bloggers during her 2016 campaign for the Minnesota House. But she said little then or since about Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, the former husband who swept into her life in 2009 before a 2011 separation.

The questions surfaced again this month in a state probe of campaign finance violations showing that Omar filed federal taxes in 2014 and 2015 with her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, while she was still legally married to but separated from Elmi.

I want you to notice a pattern here because this is how politics is played in America. The media generally doesn’t attack until they are given the green light to do so. The state Democrat party has decided it wants Omar primaried as we reported yesterday.

It seems that Minnesota Democrats have had enough of Representative Ilhan Omar’s anti-semitic comments and are now reportedly considering removing her from Congress via a primary challenge against her in the 2020 elections.

Fox News reports that the announcement came after a “bipartisan condemnation” of the Minnesota Democrat’s anti-semitic comments.

The Hill interviewed activists and officials who confirmed that while they haven’t found a candidate to go against Omar, they are done with her behavior.

“There’s definitely some buzz going around about it, but it’s more a buzz of is anyone talking about finding someone to run against her than it is anyone saying they’re going to run against her or contemplate it,” explained Democratic Representative Ron Latz when interviewed by The Hill. “There’s definitely talk about people wanting someone to run against her.”

Fox reports, “Omar Jamal, a Somali community activist, told the Washington Post that he has been in touch with Jewish community leaders about Omar. He said he supported her campaign but called her recent comments, ‘wrong, period.’”

“This is up to Ilhan Omar,” he stated. “She has really spoken in a very dangerous way, and it’s going to be up to her to reach out to people and fix this.”

So leadership from Ilhan Omar’s base is now turning on her, as is her entire party.

When the state’s top newspaper piles on, you would have to think that Ilhan Omar’s days are numbered.

So, if you are a Minnesota Muslim looking for work, please contact your state’s Democrat party.

Qualifications are limited, so long as you are of the right ethnicity.

When is America going to understand that political correctness is pure garbage and start electing leaders that care, rather than picking those who they think are most electable?

Ilhan Omar is full of dangerous and treasonous ideas and the sooner Minnesota gets her out, the better.

Oh, and by the way, there is also a recent lawsuit calling for her deportation.

We can dream…
