Omar Ilhan wants to abolish ICE, adopt fully socialized medicine, and make college “free” for all. She even approved health insurance for terrorists.
SHE HATES ISRAEL
About Israel, she wants a two-state solution. She hates Israel and outright lies and calls it an “apartheid state”.
During Israel’s hostilities with Hamas, Omar tweeted, “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.” In another tweet, she referred to Israel as an “apartheid regime.”
In the summer of 2016, Scott Johnson of power line blog uncovered the “curious” case of Ilhan Omar who was elected to the state legislature in November 2016. She is a Somali-American who took the oath of office on a giant Quran. Her speeches to the community, which takes in “Little Mogadishu”, are often in her native language.
Ms. Omar lives with the father of her three children, who she allegedly married in 2002 (though it could be someone else yet again), but is currently married to another man who appears to be her brother.
It could be an immigration fraud case.
She claimed to have divorced her brother but has been seen recently in photos with him. She used campaign money to divorce him.
On August 17, 2017, Omar issued a brief written statement purporting to clarify her marital history. A professional wrote it no doubt.
Omar says she is now married to the love of her life, the man she lives with and who fathered her three children. They temporarily separated, she wrote in her statement, and she married a man named Elmi. After two years, she was back with the love of her life but did not divorce Elmi.
She denied that her husband, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, was her brother. Elmi currently lives in the UK but went to school in the states while married to Omar.
Power Line reported last August:
A reader has written us to point out that the Somali website Somalispot posted information last week suggesting Omar’s involvement in marriage and immigration fraud. The post notes that Omar married Ahmed Hirsi in 2002. Hirsi is the father of Omar’s three children. Omar is depicted with Hirsi and their children on Omar’s campaign website.
In addition, Omar married her brother Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, implying that the latter marriage assisted his entry into the United States. Her brother was a British citizen. “As soon as Ilhan Omar married him,” the post continues, “he started university at her [a]lma mater North Dakota State University where he graduated in 2012.
Shortly thereafter, he moved to Minneapolis where he was living in a public housing complex and was later evicted. He then returned to the United Kingdom where he now lives.”
She committed perjury on the issue and all evidence points to serious corruption.
Omar was sworn in on a giant Quran.
The comments about Israel aren’t much different than what the President says about Mexicans or Muslims. I think we need to chill out and lose the outrage over labels and just talk policy. Her policies support the working class and if the money is available for a $700 billion military budget or a huge tax cut to the wealthy it sure as heck is available for the people. Can we at least kill the private medical insurance industry? That is essentially what Medicare for All is and why it will both save us money and provide more care; Canadians actually love it. Truth. Are you really happy with how easy it is to go bankrupt through illness in our country?
MFA simply takes out a toxic middleman that reaps huge profits without contributing innovation or jobs to society. The free market is awesome, crony capitalism isn’t; that is the modern message of the progressives.
Any policy that forces you to pay for something for anybody else is not supporting the working class. But nice try using a seemingly universaly appealing slogan to support your assertion. The military budget is higher than it needs to be IMO, but that’s the weakest excuse you can use to spend a shitload more money on unnecessary and idealistic programs. Canada’s healthcare system has many flaws and not everyone is thrilled about it. Lived there my whole life. Having free markets IS capitalism….the qualifier you use in front of it is irrelevant. People abusing a system of governance does not invalidate that system’s merits. The same cannot be said of socialism. It’s not hard to understand. Eventually you run out of other people’s money….
The underreported fact about MFA is that it will cost less than the status quo. Everyone is throwing around the $32 trillion dollar number without the context that we currently pay more than that. With MFA basic medical insurance bills will disappear. Small business will save tons and rid themselves of their single biggest employee-related headache. If the private medical insurance industry was more like car insurance we wouldn’t have a problem here but they are not; they are quasi-monopolies that feed like a tapeworm on our economy (Warren Buffet’s words). We can do better and when you report the $32 trillion totally out of context like has been done it is obvious who is pulling the strings.
