Hamas to Omar: Get Off Our Team!

Featured image We wrote here and here about Ilhan Omar’s latest outrage: tweeting that the United States, Israel, Afghanistan, Hamas and the Taliban have all been guilty of “unthinkable atrocities.” All on a par, apparently. Hamas, though, didn’t like being lumped with you, me and Israel: Hamas issued press release denouncing US Rep. Illhan Omar (@Ilhan) for equating the 'Palestinian resistance' to the 'crimes' of Israel & US invasion in Afghanistan. They »

The Omar clarification

Featured image Even some of her Democratic colleagues must be tired of Rep. Ilhan Omar. This tweet by Omar set off 12 Democratic colleagues who happen to be Jewish. We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban. I asked @SecBlinken where people are supposed to go for justice. »

Will the Squad’s Implosion Fracture the Democrats?

Featured image Over the last few years, it has been considered a truism that the energy in the Democratic Party comes from the far Left, largely in the person of the Squad headed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. The conventional wisdom has also been that the extremism of that wing of the party is a problem, and that the party’s leaders need to tamp it down without alienating what »

Omar Around the Bend

Featured image The latest Ilhan Omar outrage is two days old, but I don’t believe we have commented on it yet. Nowadays, you just can’t keep up. On Twitter, Omar equated the U.S., Israel, Hamas, Afghanistan and the Taliban as committers of “unthinkable atrocities.” You have to see it to believe it: We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity. We have seen »

Hamas Strikes, the Usual Suspects Cheer

Featured image I don’t think we have yet written about the current conflict in Israel. In the last two days, Hamas has launched, as of the last total I have seen, more than 700 rockets into Israel. Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and other cities have come under attack. Several Israelis have been killed, despite that country’s robust civil defense system. Israel has responded in its usual fashion, with targeted strikes against Hamas leaders »

Introducing the OMAR Act

Featured image In her young career Minnesota Fifth District Rep. Ilhan Omar has made her mark in a variety of ways. To take one, she was the first member of the Minnesota legislature to take office while married to her brother (her first of three legal, sort of, husbands). Moving on to Congress, to take another, she was the first member of the House of Representatives ever to have been married to »

Tweet of the Year?

Featured image I know, the year is young. But today’s tweet by new Congresswoman Lauren Boebert is a contender: Hypocrisy 101: @IlhanMN cites my legitimate mileage reimbursements while she paid her husband* over $1 million in campaign consulting fees. *Not her brother, the new husband. — Lauren Boebert (@laurenboebert) February 4, 2021 Congresswoman Boebert represents Colorado’s 3rd District. From her official web site bio: Congresswoman Boebert is 34 years old and is »

F*** the Police?

Featured image On New Year’s Eve, Ilhan Omar tweeted this photo of herself with her daughter Isra Hirsi: The daughter’s necklace says “FTP” on one side and “BLM” on the other. FTP stands for “F*** the Police.” Ilhan obviously knows this, as does the daughter, who proudly posts radical, anti-American and anti-free enterprise messages. Nevertheless, this is the picture that Ilhan chose to publish on New Year’s Eve. This was, it is »

“Klan Rallies”

Featured image Joe Biden may be posing as the Great Unifier, but the rest of his party hasn’t gotten the message. Ilhan Omar, for example, who offhandedly and unironically refers to President Trump’s campaign events as “Klan rallies.” I don’t expect Omar to like President Trump–he certainly doesn’t think much of her–but this is ridiculous. Yet in the world of the Washington Post, it passes without objection: #Resist. »

A shout out from Trump

Featured image In October 2019 I met briefly with President Trump before his incredible Target Center rally in downtown Minneapolis. He complimented me on my work exposing the many frauds of Minnesota Fifth District Rep. Ilhan Omar. “You’re doing a great job,” the president greeted me, “but where’s the U.S. Attorney on this?” Good question! President Trump took up the Omar question again and gave me — I think it was me »

Tom Lyden versus Project Veritas

Featured image FOX9 is the local FOX channel in the Twin Cities. It’s not an affiliate. FOX owns it. Tom Lyden works as an investigative reporter on the news side of the operation. I have a healthy respect for Tom’s work and, in one case involving a story on Ilhan Omar that FOX9 deposited down the memory hole, even stood up for its accuracy when he has stood down. Tom got the »

Book her, Danno

Featured image Reporting on Minnesota’s ethically challenged Rep. Ilhan Omar over the past four years, I came to the conclusion that she is heedless of the laws and rules that apply to mere mortals. She views herself as immune from them and so far she has proven right. In December 2019 Omar reportedly received a substantial cash advance — Forbes pegged it in a range from $100,00 to $250,000, although I was »

Voter fraud in Minnesota, cont’d

Featured image Project Veritas has posted its second video exploring voter fraud in the Fifth Congressional District’s Somali community. St. Paul’s own Omar Jamal is our guide. One Osman Ali Dahquane is the star of this episode. I find the who/what/where/when/why a bit lacking here, but there is more than enough to require investigation by the authorities. From former Nation of Islam hustler Keith Ellison in the office of the Minnesota Attorney »

The Democratic Party of the Past, and the Future

Featured image Collin Peterson is the closest thing to a conservative Democrat in Congress. He has represented Minnesota’s 7th District, the Northwestern and West Central portion of the state, since 1991. He is currently Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee. At one time Peterson was an icon in the district, but his enthusiasm for campaigning has waned and in recent cycles, as his district moved farther away from the Democratic Party, his »

His name is David Steinberg

Featured image Speaking at his rally in Bemidji last night, President Trump paid tribute to the journalism of David Steinberg on Ilhan Omar (video below). In July 2019 we published one of David’s most important investigative pieces under the heading “Tying up loose threads in the curious case.” Trump got it right: David deserves a Pulitzer Prize for his work exposing Omar. When I met briefly with President Trump about my own »

The Omar factor

Featured image As I anticipated in “Notes on the Fifth District race,” Rep. Ilhan Omar handily won the DFL primary race against challenger Antone Melton-Meaux and two nominal opponents yesterday. Omar won by just over 18 points, 57 percent to 39 percent. The official results are posted here. It’s not exactly over — an unknown number of absentee ballots have yet to be tabulated — but it’s over. Melton-Meaux has conceded. On »

Ilhan Omar: Case closed

Featured image Ilhan Omar’s father was the late Nur Said Elmi. Omar has vehemently denied that Nur Said Elmi was his name because the name reflects the fraternal relationship of Ahmed Nur Said Elmi to her — Ahmed Nur Said Elmi being the younger brother she married for fraudulent purposes in 2009. Even though the marriage had long since served its fraudulent purpose(s), Omar didn’t get around to dissolving the marriage to »
