Opinion of Kirsters Baish | Democratic Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar can’t seem to keep her name out of news headlines lately.
Her personal life has been thrust into the spotlight after her controversial marriage was brought to light.
The Washington Examiner reported that recent investigation conducted by a state agency turned up brand new documents regarding Omar’s marriage, raising more questions about “whether Omar skirted immigration laws by marrying a man that some claim is her own brother,” according to the Western Journal.
Via Western Journal:
Omar says those are all “baseless rumors” — but that’s pretty much all she has said and has remained nearly silent for three years since the first questions arose about her marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, which lasted from 2009 to 2011.
In 2002, Omar married Ahmed Hirsi in a “faith ceremony,” which is not an officially recognized marriage. Six years later, they ended the relationship.
In 2009, Omar signed all the proper documents and legally married Elmi. According to Omar, she and Elmi religiously divorced two years later, before obtaining an official divorce in 2017.
Omar and Hirsi reconciled in 2011 and were legally married in 2018.
New documents suggest that Omar may have lied when she claimed that she and Hirsi only kept their marital status between 2009 and 2011, during the time that she was allegedly married to Elmi.
According to Western Journal, “The documents — all of which are public — show that Hirsi and Omar lived together in Minneapolis the same year that Elmi and Omar married. In addition, the Examiner noted that ‘Hirsi listed his address at a single Cedar Riverside address consistently in 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011. Four minor cases against Omar show that in 2007, 2009, and 2012, she listed her address at the same Cedar Riverside address.’”
Western Journal explains that these discrepancies exist because “Some — deemed conspiracy theorists by the establishment media — claim it was for immigration fraud, as Omar is originally from Somalia. Those individuals also believe that Elmi is Omar’s brother. The new documents also bring to light other inconsistencies about Omar’s marriages.”
The (Minneapolis) Star Tribune reported that after last month’s state probe into campaign finance violations, they have found that Omar stated on her 2014 and 2015 tax documents that she was married to Hirsi… even though she was legally married to Elmi at the time.
Omar corrected the “error,” but never made a public statement about the matter.
According to Western Journal, “The entire ordeal proves the American media is a complete and utter disgrace. Journalists and news publications should be holding Omar’s feet to the fire and demanding answers from the Minnesota lawmaker about her increasingly controversial past. Or perhaps we’ll get lucky and as she nears her 2020 re-election bid, opposition research will uncover the truth once and for all.”
So while the social media companies deplatform and bankrupt every last small time journalist (like our family) and the big time TV and print outlets operate as propaganda arms of the left, Trump is still yet to do anything to stop the destruction of the 1st Amendment. If you read our site, you know we support President Trump, but without intervention, we will soon be forced to close too, just like the dozens of other small, independent opinion and news outlets that social media has already culled.
