OP ED (remember this article is speculation …. you can decide what you believe to be true) Ever since Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar became such vocal critic of the Trump administration she has been all over the news. Had she stopped at opposing merely the President himself, I doubt there would have been much focus on her, as every Democrat who toes the party line these days is doing the same thing, bash Trump 24/7.
One might argue that she would still be in the spotlight because she is a Muslim woman, and one of the first in Congress, and this is the ‘real’ reason that she is always being looked into and derided. I would be lying if I said that I do not think this may be part of the reason, but it is not the whole reason, nor the main reason IMHO.
I have a different theory. Most Americans are discontent with, at least, a small part of what our government does. Conservatives are notorious for criticising the government and calling for its dismantlement down to a size where one could “drown it in the bathtub” as Grover Norquist famously put it. Yet seldom do you see conservatives deriding the nation as a whole and coming off in a way, that, in my opinion, seems to show a disdain for our nation as whole and the people in it, as I believe Omar does.
Regardless of the reason, the woman is in the spotlight and it seems she has some dark secrets she may, or may not, be hiding.
Today the Gateway Pundit is reporting, and keep in mind this is their opinion:
Newly uncovered photographs of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s family provide even more evidence that she married her brother as part of an immigration scam.
Earlier this month, a tweet resurfaced in which Rep. Omar linked to a now-deleted Instagram post where she referred to her father by the name Nur Said.
In 2009, Rep. Omar married a man named Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.
In most Muslim countries a person’s surname is actually the father’s name. This means that Ahmed Nur Said Elmi is the son of Nur Said — and Rep. Omar’s brother.
After the Gateway Pundit and other outlets reported on this development, Rep. Omar deleted the tweet.
Now, more resurfaced tweets are painting an even clearer picture of the sham marriage Rep. Omar was involved in and the lengths she is going to hide it.
In a series of tweets from January, Rep. Omar’s sister Sahra Noor discussed her lawmaker relative — and her “other sister” with a winking emoji.
Four days prior to those tweets, Noor had tweeted a photo of a family reunion which included several men — and Leila Nur Said Elmi.
Journalist David Steinberg obtained a copy of Leila Elmi’s marriage certificate which lists Nur Said as her father.
The evidence looks pretty damning to me, but what do I know. I think deleting that Tweet was the straw that broke the camel’s back. If you are Innocent, why delete the Tweet? I guess only time will tell, but let’s at least have an investigation so this woman may either clear her name of these accusations or pay the price for her misdeeds. Remember, EVERYONE is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
