In Revolt Against What They Believe to be a Political Attack, Police Officers in Minnesota are Banding Together to Support Trump

Police officers are often present at protests. But have you ever heard of them doing the protesting?

Law enforcement officers who endorse the President are making a move. And it’s a bit of a rallying one, but in good taste.

The day after Trump announced an upcoming Minneapolis rally, the department passed down a spankin’ new edict: You can’t wear your uniforms to political events.

John Elder, a police spokesman, explained to USA Today that the rule is in place to prevent confusion:

“The uniform gets translated back to the average person as someone being from the police department. It’s very confusing for people when they see someone in uniform to understand the difference between the city and the [police union].”

The head of the local union was unimpressed. In his view, the ban was simply a way for Democrats in charge to prevent a show of boys(and girls)-in-blue GOP support.

A show, incidentally, the President would probably be expecting:

Trump often surrounds himself with men and women in uniform, both in the White House and on the campaign trail. He has has long painted himself as a pro-law enforcement president, ranging from his sharp criticism of NFL player protests during the national anthem over police brutality to the Department of Justice’s slowed pace of civil rights investigations into local police departments.

In February at the Major County Sheriffs and the Major Cities Chiefs Association Joint Conference, he renewed his commitment to law enforcement, vowing to make “officer safety a top priority.”

“In my administration, we understand that reducing crime begins with respecting law enforcement. We will not tolerate smears, or slanders or assaults on those who wear the badge and police our streets,” he said.

Right. So what’s a policing Trump fan to do?

Well, the answer is a colorful one.

As indicated by Lt. Bob Kroll, president of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis, The Donald will be bolstered by lotsa law enforcement dudes and dudettes sporting red “Cops for Trump” shirts.

The Commander-in-Chief is psyched about the impending Red Sea:

The group’s got quite the famous salesperson:

As I wait for that, stay tuned for the Minnesota rally: All those shirts you see will be folks who Protect and Serve stickin’ it — in their minds — to the Powers That Bemoan Beelzebub.

To many of his critics, he’s Satan. But to those who believe in Making America Great Again, he’s just the good ol’ President of the United States.

Minneapolis’s Radical Left Mayor Tries to Shut Down a Trump Campaign Rally

On Thursday, President Trump is due to give a rally in Minneapolis, MN. The venue has a rated capacity of over 19,000 and it is expected to be packed. And there will be another 20,000 slobbering, baying lunatics out in the streets protesting.

A coalition of groups has announced it will be protesting against President Donald Trump’s visit to Minneapolis, Minnesota, as he continues his 2020 re-election campaign.

Members from the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Anti-War Committee, Twin Cities Coalition for Justice for Jamar, and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) union will hold demonstrate against Trump’s political rally in a protest at the Target Center from 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 10.

In a press conference announcing the protest, Kent Mori, spokesman for the Anti-War Committee, encouraged others to join the coalition in order to “protest Trump and his racist policies.”

“The Anti War Committee have been fighting Trump’s provocations since before he was even president, when he came down the escalator and made his first racist announcement about our brothers and sisters across the border in Mexico,” Mori added.

“He clearly signaled what he was going to do vis-à-vis the border wall and the concentration camps at the border with kids in cages.”

Shane Clune, an AFSCME member, said they will be protesting against Trump because he is an “enemy of the unions” and an “enemy of the working class.”

Just two observations. First, it is ironic that the “Anti-War Committee” would be protesting a guy who has done more to scale back American military interventions abroad than any American president since possibly Dwight Eisenhower. Second, do real people still use the phrase “enemy of the working class” to describe anyone, much less a guy whose economic policies have overwhelmingly benefited the American worker?

But the hirsute, odoriferous mob in the streets is just a minor part of this. The real story is the effort by the Minneapolis mayor to actually stop Trump from holding a rally in that city. In fact, he’s as much as announced that is his intent (h/t to reader @AndrewHClark):

The venue, the Target Center, is owned by the City of Minneapolis but managed under contract by a company called ASM Global. Minneapolis has told ASM Global that if they allow the rally, which, by the way, is already contracted for, then they need to pay Minneapolis $530,000 to compensate the city for “security.”

ASM Global has threatened the Trump campaign with cancelling the event unless the campaign comes up with the money. The campaign is saying bullsh** and that Secret Service is providing security for the venue and the issue is something that the ASM Global and its boss need to work out.

The bottom line here is that a) yes, presidential and candidate events cost cities money and b) there is no legal way that he cities can force campaigns to pay. The reason here is obvious, going back to McCulloch vs. Maryland, it has been recognized that the ability of state and local government to demand taxes and fees from the operations of the federal government in essence gives them the ability to forbid that operation, “the power to tax is the power to destroy” and all. Minneapolis has never, ever demanded this kind of a fee to support any other federal office holder. It is simply trying to grandstand for the Resistance goons and get the Minneapolis mayor invited to be a guest speaker on the next Bulwark or National Review cruise.

Former Sen. Al Franken’s Comeback Tour Immediately Interrupted With Another #MeToo Cancellation Notice

Al Franken’s Comeback Tour Immediately Interrupted With Another #MeToo Cancellation Notice sexual misconduct sexual harassment Politics North Carolina Minnesota Front Page Stories Front Page Feminism Featured Story Featured Post democrats Culture Congress Allow Media Exception Al Franken #metoo

Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., leaves the Capitol after speaking on the Senate floor, Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017, on Capitol Hill in Washington. Franken said he will resign from the Senate in coming weeks following a wave of sexual misconduct allegations, a swift political fall for a once-rising Democratic star. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)

Former Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) has mostly stayed out of the spotlight since he resigned in early January 2018 after being hit with a wave of sexual misconduct allegations. But last week it was widely reported that Franken was launching a comeback of sorts with a new weekly SiriusXM radio show, which started Saturday.

Unfortunately for Franken, as soon as he launched his new program he was hit with another #MeToo allegation, this time from an unnamed former Sen. Patty Murray staffer who said he grabbed her behind in 2006:

The woman, who asked for her name not to be used, is now a senior staffer at an unnamed progressive organization, and said the incident occurred in 2006 shortly after she graduated from college and was working for Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.).

While being photographed with Franken, who was then still exploring his eventual 2008 run for Senate, the woman said he placed his hand on her buttocks.

“He’s telling the photographer, ‘Take another one. I think I blinked. Take another one.’ And I’m just frozen. It’s so violating. And then he gives me a little squeeze on my buttock, and I am bright red. I don’t say anything at the time, but I felt deeply, deeply uncomfortable,” the woman told the publication.

The woman told The Cut she did not tell anyone about the incident at the time out of embarrassment, but three people told the publication the woman talked to them about the alleged incident when the first allegations against Franken broke in late 2017, leading to his eventual resignation.

The Cut reached out to Franken for a response, and what he told them sounded similar to the responses he gave when asked about in the past the other allegations:

“Two years ago, I would have sworn that I’d never done anything to make anyone feel uncomfortable, but it’s clear that I must have been doing something. As I’ve said before, I feel terrible that anyone came away from an interaction with me feeling bad.”

That is…lame. Really lame. It’s almost like he’s saying “I didn’t think inappropriately touching women against their will would offend them.”

In the rare media interviews Franken has given since his resignation, he has expressed resentment towards the Senators who he said turned their backs on him instead of giving him the benefit of due process. Without evidence, former 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (NY) claimed for months that her call for Franken to resign cost her the support of top donors.

A number of Democratic Senators (former and current) have spoken out publicly over the last several months stating they wish they had handled Franken’s situation differently, and said they feel he was railroaded in December 2017 at a time when the #MeToo movement was gaining momentum.

New Yorker Magazine’s Jane Mayer wrote a thinly-sourced piece in July aimed at victim-shaming discrediting some of his accusers and rehabilitating his reputation.

As of this writing, Mayer has not commented on social media on the new allegation, nor have I found news reports that include any comments from those former or current Senators who expressed regret this year for how things were handled in 2017.

Stay tuned.

#BelieveWomen: Juanita Broaddrick Has Questions for Omar and Warren After They Tweet Support for Blasey Ford

Because it’s been a year since Christine Blasey Ford testified in the show trial witch hunt Supreme Court confirmation hearing for Brett Kavanaugh, a number of elected Democrats are taking to the Twitter machine to note they “still believe her.”

Among them is Sen. Kamala Harris (CA), who stated Ford “courageously forced our nation to reckon with an issue that has too often been kept in the dark.” And because she’s desperately trying to become relevant again in the 2020 presidential race, Harris has called for an impeachment inquiry into Justice Kavanaugh.

Two other high-profile Democrats women who tweeted out their support for Blasey Ford were fellow presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (MA) and Squad member Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN).

Here’s what Omar had to say about Blasey Ford:

Like Harris, Warren feels Kavanaugh and President Trump both should be impeached. Warren tweeted her support Friday night for Blasey Ford:

Juanita Broaddrick, who has said for decades that former President Bill Clinton raped her in the late 70s when he was the Arkansas attorney general, had some questions for the both of them:

When Omar didn’t respond, Broaddrick also asked the same question of Warren:

As of this writing, neither of them have responded to Broaddrick’s question. And they won’t.

Because for Democrats, especially Democratic women, “Believe All Women” – which ironically is a slogan that gained popularity after tweets from Hillary Clinton with similar messaging went viral a few years ago – “Believe All Women” only applies to women who have accused Republican/conservative men of sexual misconduct or assault.

In other words, “Believe All Women” is a weaponized accusatory tool for Democratic women which they shamefully use only in instances where they feel it will benefit them politically. It’s shameful, but it’s who they are.

Kudos to Broaddrick for continuing to point out their double standards.

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., speaks as, from left, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., listen during a news conference at the Capitol in Washington, Monday, July 15, 2019. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

In light of Democratic presidential candidates like Beto O’Rourke calling for gun confiscation programs, and the fact that members of the Squad have called gun rights advocates “murderers” with “blood on their hands”, the NRA sent a representative to Washington, DC to ask AOC and the rest of the Queenie Quartet a few questions.

It didn’t go well.

The gun rights organization posted a 2 minute video on Wednesday of their reporter having to practically sprint to keep up with all four freshman Congresswomen as they were asked about Beto’s plan, whether they wanted to take away guns and gun rights, and in AOC’s case if she even knew what an AR-15 looked like.

The video showed that AOC in particular was the most belligerent of the four, only answering questions by asking other questions, labeling the NRA as supporters of white supremacists and advocates of murdering Latino Americans, and all but running away from the woman trying to speak with her:

Watch:

Ocasio-Cortez got wind of the video from Moms Demand’s Shannon Watts and proceeded to launch into a temper tantrum, demanding the “full” video be released:

When the NRA ignored her, she again opened up her elementary school sandbox playbook and gave it another go:

It didn’t work.

I dunno if there is a “full, unedited video” out there or not, but it really doesn’t matter. She’s clearly on record as (again) characterizing law-abiding American citizens as white supremacists who want to see Latino American’s murdered. It’s disgusting, and releasing any supposed “unedited” video won’t change that.

Something else the video makes crystal clear is the fact that neither the AOC nor the rest of the members of The Squad like to be on the receiving end of their own medicine. They love do dish out hate against people who disagree with them on social media, at Democrat-friendly gatherings, on liberal podcasts, and the like. But when it’s them on the hot seat they either clam up or give questioners the “how dare you” treatment.

It’s easy to be a keyboard warrior or a beloved leftist when you only have to play to your adoring crowds. But when you’re in mixed political company, the dynamic changes and they don’t like it.

Bless their hearts.

Black Teacher Who Blew the Whistle on Minority Students Being Allowed to Misbehave Wins Huge in Court

Aaron Benner is a black elementary school teacher, formerly with the St. Paul School District in Minnesota.

And now, he’s also a guy with a giant chunk of cash.

The reason?

Well, the story began during the 2014-2015 schol year, when Aaron called out the school for letting minority students get away with misbehavior.

As reported by Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Benner, who is black, accused the district of failing black students by not holding them accountable for disruptive behavior. The district was being led then by Valeria Silva, who sought to reduce racial disparities in student discipline.

Resultantly, as per his 2015 federal lawsuit, the school system — despite him having never been reprimanded in 19 years as an educator — used four separate investigations to essentially force him to quit.

Well, on Tuesday night, a settlement was won. And it ain’t no little bag of coins, neither.

Aaron scored $525,000.

In an email, he expressed his gratitude toward a higher power:

I thank God for all the blessings in my life. I turned 50 this year, got married in July and now (there is) this settlement.

The system issued a statement, among which lay the absence of admitted guilt:

This agreement enables the district to avoid the time, expense and uncertainty of protracted legal proceedings regarding its previous policies, practices and expectations.

Of course, ultimately, it isn’t the district that’ll cough up the dough, but the taxpayers.

However, St. Paul seems cool with spending from the trough.

As noted by The O’Reilly Factor in 2015:

“For the past five years the St. Paul, Minnesota school district has spent nearly $3 million on ‘white privilege’ training done by a far-Left outfit called the Pacific Educational Group. That training tells teachers to overlook transgressions by minority students; to treat them differently than white students.”

Maybe they can save on that kind of instruction going forward.

Aaron now serves as an administrator for St. Paul’s Cretin-Derham Hall charter school.

Ilhan Omar Cheated On Her Husband, Then She Screwed Him Even Further

Ilhan Omar is not a nice person.

That’s become abundantly clear given the behavior that’s been revealed over the last several months. We’ve known about her history of corruption and back biting for some time, including strong evidence she married her brother to commit immigration fraud, but her current marriage was thrust into the spotlight most recently. We found out that she was cheating on Ahmed Hirsi with a campaign consultant who she just happened to be shoveling hundreds of thousands of dollars to in campaign funds as well. While an investigation would need to take place, it sure looks like she was funding his travel and business expenses in order to facilitate her affair.

But if that wasn’t bad enough, a new report is out providing evidence that she not only cheated on Hirsi, she then, in all her vindictiveness, got him fired from his job.

This via PJ Media.

During the summer, sources* within the Minneapolis Somali community informed me that Rep. Ilhan Omar has been using financial leverage to prevent Ahmed Hirsi from filing for divorce.

Ahmed Hirsi’s employment with Councilwoman Cano was quietly terminated months ago: June 14.

The June 14 termination of Ahmed Hirsi’s employment is public data. Anyone can verify this information by filing a request with the City of Minneapolis City Clerk.

My sources stated that Ahmed Hirsi was terminated following a request by Rep. Omar. They added that Omar’s motivation for the request was to force Hirsi to become reliant upon her assets and income.

For the majority of 2019, Ahmed Hirsi has reportedly borne the responsibility of raising the three children he has with Omar. (One source used the term “abandoned” to describe Ilhan’s recent share of the parenting.) Since June 14, Hirsi does not appear to have a reliable source of income.

Meanwhile, Rep. Omar currently draws a $174,000 Congressional salary, and reportedly received a $250,000 book advance in January.

First she cheats on Hirsi and lies about it. The media, being the hacks they are, dutifully accept her denials and ask no further questions. Then irrefutable evidence emerges in the form of a divorce complaint that she did in fact commit adultery. Given all that, you’d think perhaps she’d at least have some sympathy on her husband and not try to ruin his life. Nah, she dumps the kids in his lap and gets him fired from his job because that’s apparently the kind of person she is.

Omar seems like a joy, doesn’t she?

It absolutely amazes me that all of this, including the initial affair, aren’t front page on every newspaper in this country. Can you imagine if this were a Republican having an affair in office and behaved this way? Would CNN cover it? Would they have a dozen reporters digging into every detail? Of course they would. But because it is Omar, she can basically act like a mob boss and no one but right wing news outlets bat an eye. This is a woman who threatened Hirsi in order to stop him from filing for divorce. Just this week, she was caught deleting tweets that revealed her father’s real name, corroborating accounts she committed marriage fraud.

This is not someone that should be in Congress. The fact that Democrats continue to baby her and protect her says nothing good about them. If this is the future of the Democratic party, the Democratic party can’t be allowed to retake power.

Ilhan Omar Demands Twitter “Deplatform” Trump After Tense Exchange, But There’s Just One Problem

President Trump and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) engaged in a brief but tense war of words on Twitter earlier today that had the freshman Congresswoman demanding the social media platform take action against him.

Politico reports:

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) today called on Twitter to take action against President Donald Trump’s account and remove a tweet in which he shared a false claim that Omar had “partied” on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

“They have a responsibility and they set community standards and clearly the president has shown many-a-times that he has violated their community standards,” she told POLITICO. “I don’t even know why his account is not fully suspended — why he’s not deplatformed.”
[…]
Trump today shared a tweet by conservative actor and comedian Terrence Williams that erroneously claimed Omar was out dancing on the anniversary of 9/11. “IIhan Omar, a member of AOC Plus 3, will win us the Great State of Minnesota. The new face of the Democrat Party!” Trump wrote in a caption.

Williams ended up deleting the original tweet after it was noted that the Omar dancing video was actually from a September 13th event, but Trump’s tweet is still up as of this writing:

Here is how Omar responded:

She also retweeted several tweets from others who called for Twitter to take action, as well as one from 2020 presidential candidate and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) condemning Trump:

Here’s the problem with what Omar is all but telling Twitter to do in response to Trump’s tweet: If Twitter makes it the rule and not the exception to delete tweets and suspend and/or deplatform elected officials for misleading claims, unintentionally erroneous claims, deliberately false claims (lies), and/or any tweet the offending party alleges incited threats of violence, then Omar’s account will need to be suspended or deplatformed, too.

That goes for all members of The Squad, and in fact for most Republicans and Democrats in Congress as well. Because there’s not a single Twitter account out there from a politician that doesn’t contain at least one or more of the types of tweets I mentioned above, including Omar’s.

In fact, Omar has been resistant to deleting tweets she posts that are clearly anti-Semitic and prone to incite threats, and has only done so in certain instances – including deleting one that had been up for seven years.

Not to mention they weren’t deleted due to Republican complaints or because of any genuine feelings of guilt, but instead because of intense pressure from some of her own party members that the tweets were a distraction from their far left agenda.

While I don’t doubt that Omar is on the receiving end of some pretty nasty threats, the same holds true for most other members of the House and Senate. Unfortunately, it comes with the territory. The threats and those behind them should be thoroughly investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law if deemed credible and serious.

But I suspect that the issue with Omar is not just that Trump’s tweet was inaccurate, it’s the fact that she was criticized – period. It’s become Standard Operating Procedure for Squad members to flash the “incitement” card when someone criticizes them – even when the criticism is legitimate. It’s a way for Omar and her Congressional BFFs to try and shut down the debate.

Demanding Trump be suspended or deplatformed for his tweet is just another on a long list of shutuppery tactics utilized by the left, another way to try and silence an outspoken critic.

Even with Twitter’s well-documented left-wing biases in mind, it’s not likely to work. But it won’t stop Omar from trying.

Could the strange, on-again-off-again marriage of Ilhan Omar and Ahmed Hirsi be heading for court? Perhaps in more ways than one, although the New York Post’s sources are sticking to the obvious route for now. Hirsi now plans to file for divorce, the paper reports, after allegations of an affair between the congresswoman and her political consultant went public in the latter’s own divorce action.

This would be the second split between Omar and Hirsi … officially, anyway:

The Minnesota congresswoman and her husband allegedly separated in March, and Omar asked Hirsi to divorce her around that time because she didn’t want to file the papers — but Hirsi refused, telling her if she wanted a divorce she should do it herself, said the source, who has known both parties for 20 years.

The husband allegedly changed his mind after Tim Mynett’s wife last week filed bombshell divorce papers claiming her spouse was having an affair with the Somali-born US representative — with Hirsi said to be angry he had been made to look the fool by the allegations of an extramarital affair.

“I’m surprised he hasn’t filed already,” the source told The Post, adding that Hirsi was “very confused” in the wake of the bombshell allegations but still loved his wife and was reluctant to expose their three children to a public divorce battle.

Hirsi and Omar wed in a religious ceremony — but not legally — in 2002, and then split up six years later. In 2009, she married Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, but that’s where the story gets interesting. Despite her marriage to Elmi, Omar continued to file joint tax returns with Hirsi, which is illegal for unmarried couples in Minnesota. Omar later claimed that the Elmi marriage was also only a “faith tradition” ceremony, but a legal civil marriage certificate exists for it. Omar moved back in with Hirsi in 2012 but didn’t divorce Elmi until 2017. She married Hirsi last year, but that doesn’t retroactively clear the criminal issues regarding Omar’s taxes.

That might not be the only criminal risk that Omar faces if Hirsi decides to play rough in a divorce. According to Scott Johnson’s sources on Omar, Hirsi might be ready to finally explain exactly who Elmi is, and why Omar might be vulnerable to an immigration-fraud prosecution:

In the past three weeks I have circled back to interview sources whom I have found to be highly reliable in the Omar saga. They open a window onto the scandals from the perspective of Ahmed Hirsi, her long-time partner and the father of her three children. According to sources, Hirsi is telling friends:

• that he will not go to jail for Omar;

• that while Omar did indeed marry her brother (Ahmed Elmi) for fraudulent purposes, Hirsi did not know at the time that she had married Elmi;

• that Omar is threatening Hirsi he would be in trouble along with her if the truth were to come out;

• that Omar has asked him to state publicly that all is well with their marriage even though it is completely done and finished; and

• that in fact they are living apart and have been divorced under Islamic law (although they remain legally married).

Having humiliated Ahmed Hirsi by her affair with Tim Mynett, Omar now wants Hirsi to perform public relations services for her to suppress the scandal. That is cold.

Assuming this is all true, Hirsi faces two big problems in this mess. He filed those taxes along with Omar. That makes him just as vulnerable to prosecution over the fraudulent claim of joint filing status. If he knew that Omar had married her brother to fraudulently provide him legal status in the US, he could be charged as an accessory. If Scott’s sources are accurate, Hirsi needs good legal representation and a willingness to cut a deal.

Omar, however, has far more headaches ahead of her if this is all true. Prosecutors won’t be looking to cut a deal with her, after all, and she can’t afford to take one even if they were. Her political career would come to a screeching halt if she admitted to tax and immigration fraud; even in Minnesota’s extreme-liberal 5th congressional district, that’s a few bridges too far. Minneapolis has other up-and-comers who can replace Omar, and likely provide a lot less embarrassment for her district, too.

Just how true is it? The court filings will give us some clue, but Omar’s political adviser is denying the affair in his:

Rep. Ilhan Omar’s alleged lover Tim Mynett has denied bombshell allegations that he left his wife for the Somali-born representative — accusing wife Beth Mynett in a counterclaim of waging a campaign to “ruin his career” after he left their unhappy marriage.

The DC political consultant, who has been working for Omar, denied accusations leveled by his physician wife in her divorce filing that he was having a love affair with Omar and said he hadn’t been in a relationship with any other woman during their six-year marriage, according to the counterclaim filed in DC Superior Court.

“Since the time of Mr. Mynett’s departure from the marital home, Ms. Mynett began a negative campaign against Mr. Mynett, seemingly in an effort to ruin his career and permanently damage his relationship with William and his step-daughter,” read the court papers.

Mynett might have other reasons for issuing a denial. Omar’s campaign spent a lot of money on Mynett, which might create some issues of campaign-finance violations if it turns out that the purposes of that were personal. Those would most likely be civil violations rather than criminal, but that distinction won’t help Omar’s political career — even if she survives the tax and immigration investigations that might soon be coming.

It Sure Looks Like Ilhan Omar Illegally Funneled Campaign Money to Carry Out Her Affair

As my colleague streiff covered a few days ago, rumors of Rep. Ilhan Omar having an affair with a married man were essentially confirmed. In a divorce filing, the Tim Mynett’s ex-wife revealed that her then husband had confessed the affair to her back in April. This was before Omar left her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi. The filing also shows that Omar is lying about the affair given the dates in question.

Oddly enough, CNN and MSNBC have both not reported on the story. Just an honest oversight, I’m sure. But CNN did manage to find time to white knight for her yesterday after the Alabama GOP called for her expulsion from Congress. The two biggest newspapers in the country are also ignoring the story, something they’d never do if this were even a local Republican official.

There’s a lot more to the story though and details are starting to emerge. One of the more striking aspects is that Omar may have flaunted campaign finance law to funnel money to her lover’s company, either to help enrich him, to keep him around, or both. As Joe Gabriel Simpson says above, almost one third of Omar’s campaign funds have gone to Mynett’s company for “consulting” and “travel expenses,” which coincidentally paid for Mynett to be present with Omar to carry out the affair.

The excessive travel is mentioned by Mynett’s ex-wife in the divorce filings as well.

Overall, over $200,000 was spent in less than a year with Mynett’s company via Omar’s campaign coffers. Almost all that money was spent after the primary and in a general election race that was D+36. In other words, the “consulting” costs simply don’t add up. Further, she’s paid Mynett’s company $160,000 in 2019, an off election year where there’s usually very little spending by Congressional campaigns. The idea that she needed to spend that much cash with a single man during that specific time period for legitimate reasons is highly improbable. Oh yeah, and she was having an affair with him. Come on.

The next question is whether this is illegal and a new complaint to the FEC alleges it was.

Report via the Daily Caller. To reiterate, all the mainstream, liberal outlets are blacking out this story.

Rep. Ilhan Omar violated campaign finance law by using campaign funds to pursue an affair with married Democratic consultant Tim Mynett, according to a complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Wednesday.

Omar’s campaign has disbursed $223,000 to Tim Mynett’s company, E. Street Group, LLC, from August 2018 through June 2019, mostly for fundraising consulting, FEC records show. But on April 1, her campaign began making payments to E. Street Group for “travel expenses.”

Less than a week later, on April 7, Tim Mynett confessed to his wife that he was “romantically involved with and in love with” Omar, according to a divorce filing Tuesday by Dr. Beth Jordan Mynett.

Beth Mynett said in her filing that her husband’s “more recent travel and long work hours now appear to be more related to his affair with Rep. Omar than with his actual work commitments.”

Keep in mind that Omar has been caught using campaign funds for personal use before. She was found to be in violation of campaign finance law in Minnesota and had to pay a fine not too long ago. It looks like her flaunting of the law didn’t end with state elections or federal immigration statutes.

The timing of the Omar campaign’s travel reimbursements to E. Street Group coinciding with the start of Omar’s alleged affair with Tim Mynett is suspect, according to an FEC complaint filed Wednesday by the conservative National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC).

“If Ilhan for Congress reimbursed Mynett’s LLC for travel so that Rep. Omar would have the benefit of Mynett’s romantic companionship, the expenditures must be considered personal in nature,” NLPC said in its complaint.

The NLPC noted that FEC regulations prohibit the use of campaign funds for personal travel unless the candidate’s personal funds are used to reimburse their campaign.

“Rep. Omar’s filings do not reveal subsequent reimbursements for Mynett’s travel,” the NLPC stated.

Omar also failed to designate the expenditures as being for the primary or general election, which is a violation of FEC rules.

Perhaps she has the receipts to cover all this up and hand wave it away? That’s not out of the realm of possibility. The FEC needs to be looking hard at this though if they want to maintain any credibility. Regardless, what we are seeing here is just brazen. Having an affair with a consultant while he’s using campaign funds to fly to Omar to carry out the deed? It’s pretty incredible stuff and it’s the kind of thing that would be a blockbuster story if she weren’t an inter-sectional icon on the left. A kid smirked at a guy? National news. Ilhan Omar carries out an affair with someone she was paying with campaign funds? Not a peep. The mainstream media are either too dishonest or too fearful to even touch what is clearly a major revelation that deserves more digging.
