Wow: Email Suggests That Ilhan Omar's PR Firm Sought to "SHUT DOWN" Any Media Reportage on Her Sham Marriage Tax Filings, Says They've Used This Tactic Successfully Before With the (Red) Star-Tribune

Collusion between Democrat politicians and the leftwing media to suppress stories damaging to Democrats?

I shan't hear of it! I simply shannot!

The Twitchy story does not say where this email came from -- I am guessing it was not leaked, but maybe released as part of the investigation into her sham marriage tax filings.

If it had been leaked, we'd have a whole new round of Leftwing Tech Monopoly deplatformings, because it's now a violation of terms of service to reveal internal communications about a misbehaving Democrat or liberal concern.

You may continue leaking top secret government documents, of course.

I'll have to check, but they may have even spiked the conservative Star Tribune columnist's coverage of it as well.

I wouldn't say dead, but it's been very badly wounded by these scumbags. Whether America can survive the wounds that they've inflicted is still an open question.

The only way I'll ever give up and admit it's over is if it ends with a free and independent Texas, which would be the next best thing to living in the United States of America... but still a consolation prize.

This is the greatest nation that has ever been, and I don't want to let these scumbags destroy it.

No coverage whatsoever on her immigration fraud either while sitting in the state house (where she did exactly nothing of note) or while engaged in the caucus/primary for US MN-5 seat.

Ultimately, what our immigration system needs to be reformed to sort for is people who want to move here to be Americans, and live like us. Nobody's saying you have to assimilate 100% and forget everything you were, but if you're moving here, it should be because you like the culture and want to be part of it.

Bringing in people who want to hold themselves apart, or demand that we change our lives to better suit their mood... that's beneficial to none, and harmful to the citizens.

I have posted here many times the recovered documents from Friends of Democracy, wherein Democrat front groups discuss the relationships their fixers have with the DC and Baltimore police departments, which include agreements to permit destructive, violent rioting by their paid demonstrators.

I'm sure that's the case with every big city PD and court system in America, and that it goes far, far beyond rioting.

They are also quite brazen when they fix the news at all the papers, as seen here.

It's almost as if every institution responsible for holding politicians accountable in the cities they run is completely under their thrall. Almost.

86 Solheim is wrong on two things. Most importantly. The story he's referring to in 2016 was about her marrying her brother, the tax issues hadn't even come to light yet. The media was absolutely derelict. In fact they the local media (Star Tribune and Pioneer Press) advocated for her. The second thing he's dead wrong about is that the Star Tribune has NEVER been reputable, or at least it hasn't for years. They make the WAPO look balanced. There's a reason they are called the "Red Star". Oh and fuck that scrunt Omar. Send her scrawny ass back to Somolia with her brotherhusband.

102 Anything violates the TOS agreement if they say it does.

They literally said that. They said that in so many words, basically "even if something doesn't violate our rules, we still can ban people because of the deeper truth or some such crap"

Same principle as taqqiya and kitman.

Each one is its own category of lies and sinful behavior permitted in certain circumstances. Christians kinda do that too "its not really a sin to lie to Nazis to protect people!" Sin is sin, its just sometimes its more reasonable in a sinful world than others.

Here's what I've been able to find:

Taqquiya is lying to protect yourself about your faith (say you're not a Muslim if you're going to die or be persecuted for admitting it)

Kitman is withholding information to protect someone or to prevent bloodshed

Muruna: violating the laws of Islam to blend in as a spy or infiltrator, or when preparing for an act of jihad.

I and many others just call all this Taqqiya, but that isn't technically accurate. Islam is like the US legal code, they have tried to literally spell out EVERYTHING so there's no need to think, analyze, or understand: just obey.

139 Tawriya is a wierd one. Its almost like in Galaxy Quest when the actors try to explain acting: lying but for non harmful reasons like entertainment. But its broader than that. Tawriya allows you to lie by evading the truth but speaking truthfully. I had to rely on a Muslim scholar for this one:

Examples: Someone asks "do you knjow where Mike is?" but you don't want to say. You reply "nope" but are thinking of another Mike, whose whereabouts you really do not know.

Someone asks if you have any change and you say "I don't have one thin dime" because you only have paper money in your pocket.

A man swears to Allah that he can only sleep under a roof, and is caught sleeping outside. He didn't lie, because Quran 21:32 refers to the sky as a roof.

The Koran says that it is a "great sin" to acknowledge Christian faith, but you can greet a Christian on Christmas with "I wish you the best" because "the best" means "becoming a Muslim" in your heart.

Incidentally, you can lie to your spouse without violating Islam as well. At least, to your wife.

This one is particularly nasty because it allows Muslims to do things like condemn suicide bombings while supporting them (in their heart they are condemning Suicide Bombings that harm Muslims, not the one being discussed that harmed Jews) and so on.

I don't know who had the bright idea there. I was just QA.

GREAT place to work, though. The conference rooms all had huge sculptures of Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and they had this huge dragon sculpture on the 4th floor by the receptionist.

161 From Powerline:

Among the players in the emails exchanged are campaign spokesman Jean Heyer (whom I originally called for comment in August 2016), attorney and crisis committee member Carla Kjellberg, and Goldfarb. The documents show Goldfarb's work on a statement that was to be the last word and spare Omar the difficulty of addressing the facts herself.
. . .
Goldfarb remarked on his struggle to arrive at a helpful statement of the facts to cover Omar's situation -- one cultural husband, one legal husband -- and lamented that "I think it's impossible without making it even more confusing. It just doesn't work in writing." (page 3.



It's not confusing, it's simple but damning once you get down to the bare facts.

What's "confusing" Goldfarb is finding a way to spin this as anything other than bigamy, incest, immigration fraud, tax fraud, and campaign fraud.

They had a handful of good ideas in there. I liked the 'at will' powers. And the 'bloodied' state was good design work.

The problem is that over the past 3+ decades the Left has changed the question from: "What benefit/value does the immigrant bring to America?" to "What does America owe the less fortunate of the world?"

And as a result, we get people like Omar, Tlaib and others here to say: "You owe me everything, and then you still must be destroyed."

Pathfinder is basically 3.75, since it's based on the OGL of 3.5. They've gone too far down the SJW path, though. And the Pathfinder 2nd edition looks like a shitshow.

226 Powerline does Goldfarb's job for him and explains the "complicated" marital history:

According to Omar, she married Ahmed Hirsi in 2002 in her "faith tradition" and subsequently divorced Hirsi in 2008 in her "faith tradition" So far as I know, no reporter has ever identified those who presided over the proceedings, but Omar's "faith tradition" nevertheless looms large in her story.

How about Omar's wedding and marriage to husband number 2? Here I believe we have something of a mystery. Omar and Elmi are said to have married in 2009. Omar was 26 and Elmi 23 at the time.

Thanks to the campaign finance board investigation, we know that Omar was still married to Elmi when she filed joint tax returns with Hirsi in 2014 and 2015. Omar herself seems to have treated her marriage to husband number 2 as a sham. While still married to Elmi, she had a third child with Hirsi.

What "faith tradition" did Omar and Elmi invoke for their 2009 wedding and marriage? I have posted a screenshot of an image of the marriage certificate below. It is signed by "Wilicia Harris, minister."

They want to claim some higher authority as ThePress. (which is completely false afaik) ... but that means they (should) have more responsibility to be honest, not liars/traitors.

If they have some special right/privilege, that is commensurate with an obligation/duty. And if they abuse that to the point of sedition (coordinating propaganda/slander, cooperating with enemy forces to "dirty up" one party) ... then slammer or hangman.

Posted by: kraken at J

Southern cooking developed from both the slaves and the poor folk trying to get by. A lot of restaurants try to make it uppity, but it just doesn't taste as good. Chicken fried steak, made from cheap cuts of beef, covered in cream gravy with mashed potatoes. and green beans. It is so so good, but was cheap food, especially if you had a garden and a cow.

But a lot of traditional dishes started out as "poor" food. In Poland, carp in gray gelatin for Christmas eve comes to mind, because during the German and Soviet occupations, food was a scarcity. You could fish in the rivers for carp and eat it because the commissars didn't care. They sure didn't want to eat it. I'm sure there are many, many more similar circumstances around the world.

Islam does not recognize Secular Law as Trumping Sharia law.

Ergo, if not married under Islamic Law, but get a marriage License? its not a marriage as far as THEY are concerned.

Same with getting a divorce. If they are not divorced in the religion, it does not matter what the State says.

I know of a couple here who 'was' married. Got legally divorced even though they continued to live together. Why? She gets more State support for their 4 Kids if HIS income is not being counted. He just files his taxes from his Parents house.
