The curious case of Ilhan Omar

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 3/22/2019 5:17:55 AM

Ilhan Omar has refused to answer substantive questions regarding her marriage to husband number 2, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi. I think is fair to infer that Elmi is her brother and that she entered the marriage for some dishonest purpose. If so, the dishonest purpose would likely have something to do with student aid while she and Elmi went to college in Fargo at North Dakota State University. If Omar is not Elmi’s sibling, the marriage nevertheless appears to involve some serious dishonesty she has concealed. I originally raised the question regarding Omar’s marriage to Elmi in 2016.

Every time she asks a question in a hearing, the person being grilled should ask her about this marriage.

Omar is a disgusting piece of work playing the system like most Muslims migrants do. They are here to game the system. However, the media also play a big part in enabling their dishonesty by ignoring and protecting them for no other reason than that they are Muslim. Clearly, their self-righteous protection of people they know have defrauded the government is a high priority for these leftist enablers. Imagine for a moment this country with an honest press whose main focus is making sure that the truth is told. While the media may applaud one another for their obvious bias in reporting only what they deem relevant, the American people know they are liars and enablers of first order and are not to be trusted. The media in this country is an enemy of truth and are interested in one thing, pushing forward the progressive agenda. I. Am old enough to remember when a story like this one would be covered extensively in an attempt to reveal the truth. Today it is ignored because it will negatively impact the democrat party and their desire to defend the indefensible. Omar is a liar, cheat, and should never be in a position of power.

This is why they love America. You can game the system here and they love you but back in their country they cut your arms off.

This is why all manipulators love America. It was founded on two principles: The innate goodness of the individual as a God created individual with rights and freedoms on one hand, and a distrust of the innate greed of people when given too much power. Manipulators use the desire for goodness of people to gain control of the victims and exploit them. Yet they, themselves absolve themselves of the moral obligation to submit to the same principles of goodness, morality, or goodwill for all.

My parish priest holds a semi-monthly bible study. Yesterday he brought up the Battle of Lepanto, one of the most important (and overlooked!) battles of Western Civilization. 1571, the Ottoman Turks began a naval assault on Europe (they had already been turned back on land at Vienna). This was the last naval battle that used galley ships - ships powered by rowing.

The Muslims used captured slaves, specifically Christian slaves, to power their ships in their assault on Christian Europe. (This posed a moral dilemma for the Christian naval commanders, obviously, but counted those poor enslaved souls as martyrs).

I can´t help but draw an analogy to modern times.

The Ottomans were sorely defeated and it stopped their Westward expansion. But today, their Westward expansion is all at the expense of the Western welfare states. The Ottomans waged war using the slave labor of Christians, and today their descendants wage a subversive war on the West by exploiting our generosity via welfare and handouts (literally, our labor/taxes enables them to move en-mass to the West.)

What the Muslims were unable to do militarily and overtly 500 years ago they are currently accomplishing subversively, AND WE ARE LETTING THEM DO IT!!!!

Who will come to rescue the West before it´s too late?

Omar is not one of the "good" muslims that we continue to hear about who are working and contributing to society. I have known some personally and they are first rate citizens. She is a blight that will continue to spread hatred and has nothing good to offer.

After she is thoroughly investigated as a troublemaking mole I would like to see Barack Obama exposed for the super fraud who somehow made it to the top. It´s time.

#2 is correct. Americans may try to stay vigilant but it´s still easy to forget just how decadent and luxurious this nation is especially compared to the Third World.

´Streets paved with gold´ is a hyperbolic cliche but there is still plenty of (government) money on offer...and Third World immigrants are obsessed with it. They talk about scamming welfare - any kind of welfare - the way you and I talk about sports, films or our children´s activities. It is the first thing mentioned - openly and brazenly - after they initially greet each other and the plotting goes on 24/7...old, young, male, female, even kids. They know every loophole, every office, every soft touch service rep. When the occasional question or challenge to their eligibility or take arises, they play dumb or they claim they´re being picked on.

Governors moaning about funds for roads? US Congressmen moaning about funds for Medicare? It´s cry wolf stuff until and unless they address the daylight robbery committed by these people, many of whom were brought here and settled by those selfsame governments.

The retribution for allowing this group into the West will come. The longer it waits the more violent it will be. Do-Goode liberals are like slow children in a class in school. They take a long time to understand what the smarter kids learn in very short order. In school, holding everyone up for the stupid is inconvenient but this is deadly.

What´s the big deal? Muslims have been inter-marrying for 1400 years. There is severe insanity as the result. But the real insanity occurs in America where we dum-dums allow muslims to conquer cities in Michigan, Minnesota, etc. with population expansion. And we pay for it!!!

6, yep there are several analogies I´ve seen with my own eyes in Beirut back in ´83 and ´84. Casper the Depends Filling Ghost Weinberger ignored the heads of rags who set up their missile launchers in mosques, on the roofs of hospitals, and especially the ZSU-23-4 set up on the back of a flat bed truck that went from school to school, and many times used its radar straight down the runway at BIA to light up Marine helicopters. The Marines IN Beirut couldn´t possibly see what Casper could from DC. Thankfully Soviet radar sucked at targets below the horizon, that´s the only thing that saved us. But we could never engage a hospital mosque or school, no matter what. And, even back then, those religion of peaceniks were ignored by our wonderful State Department who mandated empty M-16´s to be loaded only with the permission of guess who? Donald Rumsfeld, then special envoy to Lebanon. After the Marine barracks was destroyed by the peaceniks, Don was promoted and replaced and only then could we return fire with loaded weapons (but never to schools, mosques, or hospitals). Who was blamed for the bombing? The one who warned for months about the stupidity of State´s orders to concentrate Marines in the barracks, Colonel Geraghty. We are doing this on purpose to ourselves and both parties are involved, not just the Marxists. The Marxists merely say, "Well, hell if the GOP is THAT idiotic, let´s try this and see how stupid they really are!"

The only curious ( not really) thing about Omar is that her marriage history is not being investigated and reported on by the msm. I know I repeat myself, but she´s a deomocrat, muslim, female, black. The msm doesn´t give a damn to know anything other than what´s on the surface.

#6 – The victory at Lepanto is still celebrated annually on October 7th with honoring Our Lady of the Rosary, as well as October being dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary. The Catholic faithful of Europe were called upon to petition Our Blessed Mother for victory over the Musselman and, since that time, her intercession is credited with turning the tide. The Catholic Church remembers.

The West has abandoned its Judeo-Christian roots and the entire concept of Christendom. It has turned its back on the wisdom of Scripture to instead embrace the siren song of socialism. The humanists have elevated the creature over the Creator, mercurial feelings over rational thought and relativism over object fact. The “social sciences” have replaced Natural Law. Its no wonder we are easy pickings for 7th century pagans who have faith and zeal.

There are political and military solutions to the existential threat posed by Islam. However, those that would be effective are dependent upon a citizenry and leadership who once again embrace the morals, values and virtues taught in the Old and New Testaments. Our hope must once again come from God, not men. Whether or not our country is blessed with another Great Awakening is up to the remnant faithful. This weekend take your family to church or synagogue, and invite a friend. Be bold in sharing your faith.

If Omar did enter into a marriage with her biological brother in the USA that marriage would constitute a criminal fraud in the legal jurisdiction where the marriage took place. As in order to marry in the USA, the parties must first apply for and be issued a marriage license from a State governmental entity. Such a marriage license would never be issued if it were known that two biological siblings were going to use that marriage license to marry, that woulld constitute a criminal fraud that could be prosecuted through State level criminal courts.

In addition, if after the marriage took place, if Omar filed any sort of immigration application or petition with the federal immigration authorities looking to grant her alien biological brother any sort of immigration benefit or status as her spouse, that would have been based upon a fraudulent and invalid marriage, that action would constitute a federal criminal immigration fraud that could be prosecuted in the federal criminal courts. Since it does not appear that any immigration application or petition was filed, if Omar did marry her brother, the motive probably had something to do with the brother qualifying for student loans, that in itself would be a financial fraud.

Former Rep. Trey Gowdy stunned House investigators recently by all but announcing the existence of secret FBI recordings of Trump campaign foreign policy volunteer adviser George Papadopoulos, made in the summer of 2016 by an undercover FBI operation. Gowdy made the revelation in an interview Sunday with Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo. "There are a lot of serious questions that need to be asked" during Attorney General William Barr's investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, Gowdy said. Among them: "Where are the transcripts, if any exist, between the informants and the telephone calls to George Papadopoulos?"

Australia’s dysfunctional, unpopular, conservative government (the Liberal and National parties, currently in coalition, sit on the right in Australian politics) held onto power for a third term in Saturday’s national election. This happened despite the fact that most analysts expected it to lose a large number of seats; despite being (seemingly) out of step with the nation’s emerging consensus on climate change, marriage equality, religion, and race; despite a chaotic tenure in office that has seen three leaders since 2016; despite a threadbare

Three years after the twin shocks of President Trump's triumph in the Republican primaries and the narrow win for "Leave" in the Brexit referendum, the evidence has never been stronger that the world has entered an era of anti-liberalism. Later this week, voters across Europe go to the polls to vote in EU parliamentary elections that could deliver a quarter or more of the seats to the continent's right-wing populists and nationalists. Meanwhile, exit polls in India suggest that Narendra Modi's Hindu nationalist party will win re-election when results are announced on May 23.

Rotting Trash Piles Sky-High in LA,

Rat-infested piles of rotting garbage left uncollected by the city of Los Angeles, even after promises to clean it up, are fueling concerns about a new epidemic after last year's record number of flea-borne typhus cases. Even the city's most notorious trash pile, located between downtown LA's busy Fashion and Produce districts, continues to be a magnet for rats after it was cleaned up months ago. The rodents can carry typhus-infected fleas, which can spread the disease to humans through bacteria rubbed into the eyes or cuts and scrapes on the skin, resulting in severe flu-like symptoms.

So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

Democratic leaders in Congress proved the perils of “jumping the shark” this month. The phrase comes from the 1977 episode of the television comedy “Happy Days” in which one of its leading characters, the “Fonz,” jumped over a shark in a water skiing stunt in swim trunks along with his signature leather jacket. That moment was viewed as a desperate ratings stunt by a dying television series struggling to keep viewers engaged. Today, the phrase has come to define similar instances of desperation. With the many overhyped political moments of the last two years, it is not clear when the partisan shark jump occurred. Soon after the appointment of special counsel

So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

If successful, it would mark an achievement for the autonomous driving industry and a possible
