Ilhan’s latest ilhusion

Featured image One of my Somali friends called me this week to express indignation over Ilhan Omar’s latest ilhusion, as I will call it. Supporting a local food bank program that Omar had literally nothing to do with, my friend reported Omar was using it fraudulently to raise funds for her own political purposes. This should be a big story. Given the state of the media, however, it circulates like samizdat on »

An Ilhan Omar update

Featured image Ilhan Omar has attracted a few DFL opponents to her endorsement for her continued representation of Minnedota’s Fifth District. The Star Tribune’s Patrick Condon profiled one of them yesterday in “Democratic challenge materializes to Rep. Ilhan Omar.” I support Leila Shukri Adan in the DFL and wish endorsed GOP candidate Lacy Johnson the best in the election, but let’s get real. It’s a D+26 district, at least. I’m with Leila. »

Ilhan Omar remarries, AP edition

Featured image Amy Forliti is a reporter for the Associated Press in Minneapolis. She is a competent mainstream media journalist. Long after it could have had any bearing on Ilhan Omar’s election to Congress from Minnesota’s Fifth District in 2018 — i.e., long after the DFL primary — Forliti took a detailed look at the story that Omar had married her brother in 2009 for some dishonest purpose and only recently went »

Ilhan Omar remarries

Featured image Minnesota’s own Rep. Ilhan Omar announced on Instagram yesterday that she has remarried. She didn’t identify her new husband by name, but she was married to her own fundraiser, Tim Mynett. She put it this way: “From partners in politics to life partners.” Depending on how you count and whether you believe Omar’s 2016 account, it’s Omar’s second, third, fourth, or fifth marriage. The Daily Mail had staked out the »

American Ingrate: Ilhan Omar

Featured image I met up with the Federalist’s Ben Weingarten in Minneapolis this past fall when he was in the process of finishing American Ingrate: Ilhan Omar and the Progressive Islamist Takeover of the Democratic Party. With a foreword by Andrew McCarthy, the book is published in paperback today by Bombardier Books; it is available on Amazon at the link. Ben sent me and a few other students of Omar a copy »

#Ilhan Married Her Brother

Featured image Doing the work that the Minnesota media otherwise refuse to do, John Justice and Drew Lee have closely followed the saga of Ilhan Omar on their KTLK AM 1130 morning news talk show. They understand what is happening. It has become increasingly obvious. Even Ray Charles could see it. When the Daily Mail pounced on the story this week, it was old news for them. At this point they are »

Ilhan and the Communists

Featured image Scott noted earlier Ilhan Omar’s bizarre response to the fact that a member of the Minneapolis Somali community who knows Omar well has confirmed that she married her brother for fraudulent purposes. First she falsely asserted that Somali Abdi Nur was paid to smear her. Next she asserted that the whole thing is a Zionist conspiracy. That reeks of desperation, obviously. I just want to add one more log to »

Ilhan Omar: It’s a Zionist conspiracy!

Featured image Further responding in her own fashion to the Daily Mail story on her marriage to her brother, Ilhan Omar sinks ever deeper into the morass. She now finds David Steinberg guilty of “enemy collaboration” (with Israel?), connects him to the Murdochs, connects the Murdochs to the British tabloid press (apparently including the Daily Mail, controlled by Jonathan Harmsworth) and reveals…a Zionist conspiracy! Wow. Why is it always the Jews? This »

Daily Mail: Ilhan Omar married her brother

Featured image Is there anyone in the world who doesn’t know that Ilhan Omar married her brother in 2009? It has been my mission in life to get the word out over the past three and a half years. Today Martin Gould reports for The Daily Mail: “Ilhan Omar DID marry her brother and said she would ‘do what she had to do to get him “papers” to keep him in U.S.’, »

Ilhan Omar: The tabloid story, cont’d

Featured image Daily Mail reporter Martin Gould has been in town this week doing the work that the Star Tribune and the rest of the local press declines to do. I had lunch with him in Minneapolis on Wednesday to compare notes. He updates the tabloid elements of the Omar saga in “Ilhan Omar’s husband discovered she was cheating with her chief fundraiser when he walked in on the lovers lounging in »

Ilhan Omar Hates America

Featured image On Friday, Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib participated in a “radical democracy” event at Howard University in Washington. The YouTube video below shows Omar’s four-minute riff on the theme that everything that goes wrong in the world is America’s fault. Thanks to the Washington Free Beacon for bringing it to light. Omar’s blame-America-first ideology is comprehensive. Are there refugees in the world? It’s because of American foreign policy! Are »

Ilhan Omar, Dope

Featured image I have commented more than once that Ilhan Omar, while a remarkably arrogant person, is also a woman of very limited intelligence. To be fair, you could say that about a lot of liberals. But this tweet, issued by Omar yesterday, illustrates the point: What an important victory for the people of Minnesota! This is what happens when communities come together to oppose mining projects that will line the pockets »

Leila Adan: Ilhan Omar doesn’t represent us (the interview)

Featured image Chicago’s Morning Answer with Amy Jacobson and Dan Proft on AM 560 invited my friend Leila Adan to discuss her prospective candidacy for Minnesota ‘s Fifth District DFL congressional nomination (video below). Taking off from her Power Line post “Ilhan Omar doesn’t speak for us,” this terrific interview provides another side of the Fifth District (although I am afraid Leila overestimates the number of Jewish voters in the district). Leila »

Ilhan Omar: The PTSD of a clown

Featured image I have been following Rep. Ilhan Omar closely since she defeated a 22-term incumbent in the DFL primary to run for the state legislature representing the West Bank/Little Mogadishu neighborhood of Minneapolis in August 2016. The first time I became aware of Omar’s claim to be a victim of PTSD, however, was just last year, in Benjamin Wallace-Wells’s idiotic March 27, 2019 New Yorker profile. W-W snagged an interview with »

Leila Shukri Adan: Ilhan Omar doesn’t speak for us

Featured image The Washington Free Beacon’s Adam Kredo reports “Ilhan Omar Named 2019 Anti-Semite of the Year.” Following a public nomination and voting period, the organization StopAntiSemitism.org recognized Omar for repeatedly spreading anti-Israel and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. My friend Leila Adan ([email protected]) is shortly to announce that she is opposing Omar for the Fifth District DFL congressional nomination. She wants it to be known that Omar does not speak for the Fifth »

Ilhan Omar: Errors & omissions, etc.

Featured image Working on the case of Ilhan Omar over the past three years, I have been most forcibly struck by what seems like her compulsive lying and the lack of reliable information about her background. Reporters repeat and reiterate her lies as facts. She is under the impression that she proceeds with immunity from the alternative of truth or consequences that most of us live with most of the time, and »

No relief from Ilhan Omar

Featured image My Somali friends took an intense interest in H.R. 1158 (“DHS Cyber Hunt and Incident Response Teams Act of 2019”), sponsored by Rep. Michael McCaul. The text of the bill is posted here; the Senate Appropriations Committee summary of key provisions is posted here. The bill has passed both houses of Congress and now awaits only the president’s signature. The Club for Growth scored the bill as a key vote »
