“Show me who your friends are, and I will tell you who you are!”
That’s the quote my late mother stated on more than one occasion and for good reason. It allows you to decipher an individual’s character. You are associated with the actions of those whom you associate with, even if you do not act in the same manner.
As a young man growing up in New York City during the 70’s and 80’s, it was very common to be tough but smart. We had to be!
Being tough meant that you were not easily moved or affected by things, but it did not imply poor character. Having a good reputation or good character was important. It meant getting that part time job every teenager wanted. After all, it was your family’s last name and your mother’s ability to raise good children that was being judged.
This is why Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s I have a dream speech greatly resonated with me. “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
That quote, still to this day, is among the best quotes of all times. It is no
different than what my mother had burned in my mind some 10 years after Dr. King stated it, regarding my choosing of friends.
During a time in our nation’s history, when riots causing billions of dollars in damage, loss to small businesses, loss of low income jobs, broken police relations, arson, no go zones (no police zones) and even loss of personal relationships; we must closely look at the character of the people we are voting for.
After all, these are our representatives and a reflection of our own character. This is why I’m deeply concerned about the character of Minnesota’s Representative Ilhan Omar.
Representative Omar has an interesting and puzzling story. It begins in her native country of Somalia. A country that is in a state of ongoing civil war and has some of
the most brutal practices against toddlers and women known worldwide. These practices are not limited to local groups.
In 1993, the Somali Armed Forces shot down a U.S. Blackhawk Helicopter and then proceeded to drag captured soldiers through the streets as a sign of victory and superiority.
Piracy on the open seas is another common practice. Such as taking ships and crews hostage until a ransom is paid. The most famous case of piracy conducted by the Somalian pirates was against the USS Maersk.
Somalia is also known for conducting one of the highest rates of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in the world. According to UNICEF” approximately, 95% of infants to pre-teen girls (ages 4 to 11) are forced to undergo FGM.
A May 2020 report from Fox News shows an unfortunate increase in this barbaric practice during COVID lockdowns. This practice is horrific and evil in my opinion.
In 1991, when Ilhan was 8 years old, civil war broke out in Somalia and Ilhan and her family fled to Kenya to live in a refugee camp for 4 years. The refugee camps in Kenya were unlike anything you can imagine.
These camps were filthy. The living quarters were wrapped in straw/hay and old dried out trees, with dirt floors and roofs made out of cloth and metal. The unsanitary conditions must have been a petri dish for diseases and viruses. Ilhan and her family where then brought from Kenya to the United States as refugees in 1995.
By comparison, any refugee site within the United States would have been heaven sent. The medical treatment, the schooling, the indoor plumbing, the food, the sanitary conditions and safety. Anyone coming from a Kenyan or Somalian camp would see this as a gift from God.
Rep. Omar’s family ended up settling in Minnesota. This allowed her to attend local public schools and finally Minnesota State University. This type of education, for a woman who came from a nation that did not allow her to have an opinion, an education or any form of normal life must have felt like a dream come true.
Opening new horizons far beyond what’s achievable for women in her native Somalia. A truly difficult journey from the worst of life and ending up a free person, educated within the public schools and college of Minnesota paid for by the United States taxpayer.
With this background and journey, one would think that Ilhan would grow up to love and appreciate her adoptive nation. Much like the people who came to the United States during the late 1800’s early 1900’s. Escaping poverty, in hopes of a new and better life.
They came over on containerships, not cruise ships. They were hard working people who had skills, a love for their native land but a great respect for America, their new home. They contributed with their hard work, education, abilities and dreams.
They volunteered in wars. Some to fight and beat the very nations they had once left. Rarely did anyone run down the United States, especially if they came from a land of oppression, communism or fascism. We cannot say the same for Ilhan Omar.
Ilhan Nur Said Elmi, (Ilhan Omar) comments and actions, if measured by Dr. Martin Luther King’s quote about judging a person by the content of their character would show her to be a very ungrateful, dishonest and hateful person.
Using public verifiable records, and not political points of view, I will introduce you to who is now known as Rep. Ilhan Omar.
Since Rep. Omar was elected to represent her district in Minnesota in 2016 she has taken the torch to the nation that has given her everything. Her incessant criticism of everything American would make you think that she’s one of our biggest enemies.
According to the Constitution’s 1st Amendment, an American Citizen’s speech is
protected. That means commentary that may be stupid, brilliant, insane, funny or angry is guaranteed not to be silenced by the government or other entities.
However, although there is a right to speech, there is no right to force people to listen to you. But listen we must because “out of the mouth speaks the heart” – Luke 6:45.
After her election, Rep. Omar associated and aligned herself with the infamous
“Squad.” Squad members include Ayanna Pressley of Pennsylvania, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez of NYC and finally Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.
These four women are all serving their 2nd term of elected office and have achieved a great deal of notoriety based on their solidarity towards the “progressive” (Communist) movement, anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Life, and anti-capitalist positions.
My question is why would Rep Omar, out of all four “squad” members who has benefited the most from the United States be so anti American?
After all it was in fact the United States that gave her health care, education, a prosperous and safe life, free from barbaric and evil practices. The answer is content of character, built by those whom you associate with.
One aspect of Rep. Omar’s life that is quite questionable, is her marriages. In 2002, Ilham married her first husband, Ahmed Abisalan Hirisi in a non-state recognized religious ceremony. They had two children.
In 2008, Omar and her first husband Hirisi allegedly split and in 2009 she married her second husband, her brother Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, in a state recognized marriage.
It was reported that in 2011 they split but did not legally divorce until 2017. This is the same year that she became a freshmen Congressional Representative.
However, in 2012 while still legally married to her second husband, Rep. Omar, gave birth to a third child by Abisalan Hirisi, yes, her first husband. After having the third child with her first husband, Rep Omar and her second husband divorced according to Muslim tradition.
I know this sounds confusing to follow, with all the marriages and having children with one husband, while married to another, but that’s not the end of it.
Rep. Omar has recently married for a third time. This time to Tim Mynett, whom she was caught having an affair with. Tim was married to another woman, but had an affair with Omar while he worked for her. They were caught red handed by her ex-husband and both Rep. Omar and Mynett quickly married after Mynett divorced his wife.
A character pattern is evident for Ilhan Omar. Her convictions around marriage and fraud are a testament to that.
Remember now, Rep Omar, was born in Somalia and had been a refugee in Kenya, both places, where female genital mutilation (FGM) is a standard common and forced practice on over 95% of pre-teen girls.
So what did Rep. Omar have to say about the United States after she was elected and was given a $170k+ salary, pension, a Cadillac, healthcare, security guards and vast access to the hallowed halls of Congress?
Rep. Omar stated in a Vogue Arabia issue…
“It’s an everyday assault. Every day, a part of your identity is threatened, demonized, and vilified.”
I just wonder how everything she has been afforded in America, from the right to vote, go to school, college, drive, take a stroll alone or with girlfriends and avoid genital mutilation not be better than what she endured in her homeland.
All rights and privileges given to her by America, via the sacrifices of our soldiers and taxpayers. How can she legitimately make such wild claims and assertions without being a literal indoctrinated hate filled individual who is clearly
misdirected when it comes to facts.
Muslim women in many Muslim countries cannot work, drive or vote and must always be accompanied by a male chaperone. Rep. Omar, clearly forgot what she went through in her native country and in her second home country, Kenya.
The outrageous, hatefully and egregious Vogue Arabia statement is not her only anti-American attack. Rep. Omar, while speaking at a CAIR rally, (a radical political arm that raises money for Islamic terrorists both here in the United States and abroad), had the unmitigated gall to state the following regarding the radical Islamic murders and suicide bombings of the Twin Towers in NYC.
“For too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second class citizen and frankly, I am tired of it and every single Muslim in this country (USA) should be tired of it. CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose our civil rights”.
Omar, has attempted to somehow tie in the civil rights movement, which fought to end the horrific way African Americans were treated in the Democrat south and the outright prejudice that Black Americans faced during their fight for rights, to radical Islamic terrorists, in an attempt to minimize what occurred on September 11th.
This act is a clear slap and spit in the face of those that died, both black and white, Jew and Gentile, fighting for the civil rights of blacks. No Islamists were hung, unless it was in their own land for being homosexuals. No Muslim women raped unless it was by the hand of an Islamist Religious zealot.
No child sold unless it was in and from an Islamic Nation. No Mosques burnt unless they were burnt by other Islamists who thought the teachings were too pro American and Israeli. And again, no Muslim little girl or pre-teen mutilated unless it was by the hand of Islamists zealots.
It is a serious insult to the entire civil rights movement and its history of Christian and Jewish warriors fighting for and giving their lives and livelihoods for true freedom.
Rep. Omar, who has benefited from everything America was founded on has clearly been indoctrinated and is indoctrinating others while deceiving her own faith and promoting outrageous lies and deflecting from her homeland’s horrific human rights abuses. To allege that they actually occur here in the United States against Muslim people, who for the most part are hardworking and decent individuals is an outright lie.
Rep. Omar’s third marriage to Tim Mynett, as in every other one of her marriages, is plagued with fraud and adultery. Mynett and Omar were married in a ceremony officiated by Tim Mynett himself in the District of Columbia. The act of officiating one’s own wedding is not common but is legal.
Now the question begs to be asked, who is Tim Mynett? Is he a judge, a pastor or Iman since he officiated his own wedding to Rep. Omar?
Well, the answer is Tim Mynett is the head of E Street Group, LLC. What is E Street Group, LLC? A Washington D.C. Political Consulting firm. Who are the beneficiaries of E Street Group LLC?
One is none other than Ilhan Omar, whom Tim Mynett had the affair with while he was married. Now to get this correct, you have to follow a bouncing ball that is not balanced and is super bouncy.
Omar, who was still married to both of her husbands at the time, Hirisi (through a religious ceremony and her brother through a civil ceremony) had begun an adulteress affair with Mynett who was married.
Once the affair became common knowledge, Omar divorced her brother and her first husband, then married Mynett in the ceremony that Mynett himself officiated.
A look into the financial aspect of the Omar and Mynett connection is interestingly criminal. Beginning with a payment of $189,000 while Rep. Omar and Mynett were having a torrid affair. In addition, from 2019 to August 2020 Ilhan’s campaign paid Mynett’s E Street Group an additional $2.8 Million dollars. She then abruptly broke ties not to her husband but to E Street Group, LLC after checking with an FEC ethics attorney.
During the recent covid-19 (taxpayer funded) handouts, Mynett’s E Street Group, LLC., received payments of $635,000 and $134,000 from the Payroll Protection Plan (PPP) and $500,000 in economic injury Disaster Loans. That’s almost $1.3 million in taxpayer funded dollars.
The main question that I have is why would a political consulting firm need $1.3 million dollars from tax payers? They are not an essential business, nor do they serve the general public. They have no value to anyone except to provide opinions and to create ads for congressional members.
Omar’s questionable finances continue as she sent over $1.6 million dollars to her husband in the third quarter filings of 2020. As a side note, one of Omar’s most famous fund raising tricks was to sell a t-shirt with “F*&k around and you will find out” emblazoned on its front.
Someone tell me how this woman in a group of three others, specifically Rep Talib who has just as much a filthy mouth as AOC and Omar, can be considered professional congresswomen as opposed to juveniles?
How do they negotiate in person and how do they think they fair against other nations in debating what should be foreign policy? Again, show me your friends and I will tell you who you are.
Regarding Israel, Omar had stated among some of her most vitriolic anti-Semitic rants that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel. #Gaza #Palestine #Israel”.
Omar, Talib, Ocasio-Cortez and Pressley have a strong anti-Israel and anti-American stance. They support terrorists and they support the destruction of the freedom both countries have fought for and defended. The true peace that is sought by the United States and Israel in the Middle East.
They are communists, socialists, progressives. They identify with the worst forms of people ever known to exist. Stalin, Lenin, Castro, Hitler, Ayatollah’s, Mao, Xi, and a plethora of other hate filled individuals who curse freedom of the individual and the authority of the government of the people, by the people and for the people at all cost.
Peace cannot come to Israel, the smallest country in the Middle East, unless they are destroyed and pushed back into the sea or bow down and submit to those Omar and Talib, Pressley and Ocasio Cortez say so. These four, led by Omar, who minimized the 9-11 terrorist attacks by stating that some people did something, are no friends of the very country they claim to serve.
To Omar’s “some people did something” statement, I say you are correct, some people did do something.
Islamic Terrorists, murdered people I knew and loved. In actuality, the real people that did something were the firefighters who ran up into two burning buildings to rescue innocent, trapped civilians, police officers who assisted in covering the bodies of those who jumped to their death, the EMTs who treated those who were running out of the Twin Towers as it was burning.
The collaborative effort of private citizens, civil servants, digging for bodies and remains that were crushed after the towers fell. The pastors, rabbis and Muslim clerics who comforted mothers, fathers, children, who heard of the murders of their family members. The churches and synagogues who offered prayers, food, blankets, water, all donated from hotels, emergency agencies and restaurants.
Yes Ilhan Omar, some people did something.
American soldiers leveled the grounds and destroyed terrorists cells that you and your friends support. American soldiers died defending our nation from your supporters.
The American people did something Ilhan Omar, we stood and fought, and we won. I will gladly show you who my friends are and you will know who I am by those who I associate with. Just like you have shown us your friends, confirming exactly who you are.
