An Ilhan Omar update

Featured image The Daily Mail has recently published two stories — here (October 21) and, most recently, here (November 12) — covering the tabloid-friendly aspects of Ilhan Omar’s life and career. These stories directly demonstrate a few of the lies that Omar is living and indirectly illustrate the protective cover provided by the Star Tribune. The Daily Mail is doing the work that the Star Tribune refuses to do, as I am »

Ilhan Omar, tabloid style

Featured image The Daily Mail has devoted substantial resources to documenting Ilhan Omar’s tabloid life apart from her husband and children. In today’s installment the Daily Mail reports “EXCLUSIVE: ‘She’s not fooling anyone.’ Ilhan Omar lives a double life of secret hookups and romantic vacays to Jamaica with her married aide, as they live together ‘on and off’ and even talk of MARRIAGE (once their divorces are finalized).” To the tabloid aspect »

Ilhan Omar: A flashback

Featured image I met with an investigative reporter yesterday to discuss my work on the case of Ilhan Omar. He asked me to dig out the email that alerted me to the SomaliSpot post by “Abdi Johnson” (no relation!) and prompted my inquiry to the Omar campaign on the morning of August 12, 2016. When I received the abusive nonresponse from criminal defense attorney Jean Brandl that afternoon, we were off and »

Ilhan Omar’s 9/11: Nicholas Haros explains

Featured image Nicholas Haros, Jr. lost his mother Frances in the attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11. He therefore takes Ilhan Omar’s dismissive remarks about the attack somewhat personally. Speaking at the Ground Zero memorial event yesterday, Mr. Haros addressed a portion of his remarks directly to Omar (video below). The media widely covered Mr. Haros’s remarks; Omar is a national disgrace. The New York Post covered his remarks here, »

Ilhan Omar’s 9/11

Featured image Reader David Lunde composed the image below to memorialize Ilhan Omar’s unique contribution to 9/11. According to Omar, it is the the day on which “some people did something.” Omar’s quote came in her tribute to the Muslim Brotherhood front organization CAIR earlier this year: “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our »

Ilhan Omar (New York Post remix)

Featured image Yesterday morning I posted “Ilhan Omar feels the heat.” Yesterday evening the New York Post published Ebony Bowden’s article “Rep. Ilhan Omar’s husband wants divorce after affair bombshell: source.” Bowden reports: “Rep. Ilhan Omar’s marriage appears to be headed for the rocks, a longtime friend of the couple told The Post.” Bowden’s article draws on the research of David Steinberg without attribution. It also draws on the Daily Mail’s shoe »

Ilhan Omar feels the heat

Featured image Of all the scandals in which Ilhan Omar is enmeshed, one might think the Daily Mail’s revelation this past July of her affair with political consultant Tim Mynett would be the least of them. The news last week of Beth Mynett’s divorce filing, however, has begun to disillusion a Somali community that has taken Omar at face value. Not cool — not cool at all, and it has thrown Omar »

Ilhan Omar: The deep meaning of “no comment”

Featured image The congeries of scandalous stories about Rep. Ilhan Omar deriving from Omar’s affair with Tim Mynett has emerged in the Minnesota media only this week. Her blatant lies about the obvious and her refusal to comment nevertheless seem to have had an awakening effect. Yesterday the National Legal and Policy Center filed a Federal Election Commission complaint alleging that Omar’s campaign had paid Mynett’s travel expenses for her, ah, personal »

Latest Developments In Ilhan Omar Soap Opera [Updated]

Featured image We have generally stayed away from commentary on Ilhan Omar’s tangled personal life, except as it relates directly to potential criminal and ethical issues. But we would perhaps be remiss if we failed to note this New York Post story: “My husband dumped me for Ilhan Omar, DC mom says in divorce filing.” A Washington, DC, mom says her political-consultant husband left her for Rep. Ilhan Omar, according to a »

Will Ilhan Omar Re-Elect President Trump?

Featured image President Trump tweeted yesterday that Ilhan Omar will help him to carry Minnesota in 2020: In 2016 I almost won Minnesota. In 2020, because of America hating anti-Semite Rep. Omar, & the fact that Minnesota is having its best economic year ever, I will win the State! “We are going to be a nightmare to the President,” she say. No, AOC Plus 3 are a Nightmare for America! — Donald »

Observations on the Ilhan Omar Scandal

Featured image Details continue to emerge about the deceptions and frauds that Ilhan Omar has perpetrated over the last decade. For now, though, I want to step back and make two bigger-picture observations about the Omar story. First, the question of whether Omar married her brother in 2009 is really secondary. It is, of course, an attention grabber. (“There’s a lot of talk about the fact that she was married to her »

Trump: What’s This About Ilhan Omar and Her Brother?

Featured image Reporters were throwing questions at President Trump on the White House lawn as, I believe, he was about to board a helicopter. One was about Ilhan Omar. Trump noted that “There’s a lot of talk about the fact that she was married to her brother,” while disclaiming any knowledge of the scandal. The funny part is when he said “I’m sure that somebody would be looking at that.” The press, »

Ilhan Omar explained

Featured image Taking issue with one of President Trump’s comments yesterday in the controversy of the moment, CNN explains that Rep. Ilhan Omar didn’t actually praise al Qaeda in her 2013 comments (video below). CNN devotes two reporters to the task of reconstruction and offers this grudging concession: “It is possible to argue that Omar was making light of al Qaeda’s crimes in suggesting that its name itself is what makes people »

Ilhan Omar: Illegal Immigrants Are Dumb

Featured image Speaking at Nutroots Nation, Ilhan Omar continued the fusillade of abuse that she directs against the country that not only rescued her from an African refugee camp, but elected her to Congress. Talking about the crisis at the Southern border–Democrats now admit that it is a crisis–Omar said that the U.S. treats illegal immigrants worse than dogs because we are racists: Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) says Americans treat detained illegal »

From the mixed-up files of Rep. Ilhan Omar: Finale

Featured image In their Ilhan Omar story today, Patrick Coolican and Stephen Montemayor refer repeatedly to Power Line as conservative. Let it be noted, however, that their story tacitly reveals the Star Tribune to be a pillar of Minnesota’s leftist/progressive establishment. Coolican and Montemayor note in passing (italics added): “Campaign e-mails disclosed by the campaign finance board also show a concerted effort to quash the Elmi story. An August 2016 internal e-mail »

From the mixed-up files of Rep. Ilhan Omar (12) [updated]

Featured image In the matter of Minnesota Fifth District Rep. Ilhan Omar, my purpose in this series has been (1) to dig into the state campaign finance board investigative file made available to the media over two weeks ago, (2) to embarrass the Star Tribune into covering it, and (3) to attract the interest of others outside Minnesota to what appears to be a big story. In previous installments of this series »

From the mixed-up files of Rep. Ilhan Omar (11)

Featured image In this series I have complained repeatedly of the Star Tribune’s noncoverage of the news about Ilhan Omar. There’s something about Ilhan! This morning the Star Tribune delivers what they seem to think is big news, courtesy of Washington bureau chief Patrick Condon: “Rep. Ilhan Omar, Valerie Castile call for federal ban on school lunch shaming.” Speaking of shame, I wonder about the Star Tribune. We learn from Erin Schulte’s »
