Omar, who pushed to defund, eliminate Minneapolis PD now blames police for crime spike


The following contains editorial content which is the opinion of the author, a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today. 

MINNEAPOLIS, MN- Point of information for neo-Marxist “squad” member Ilhan Omar (D-MN)—when you have your finger pointed at someone else, three more are pointing back at you.

Omar, who has called at various times for defunding or completely eliminating the Minneapolis Police Department is now attempting to blame that city’s officers for escalating crime rates.

During a town hall event, the leftist lunatic accused the Minneapolis PD of “not fulfilling their oath of office,” while complaining at the same time that there is “no accountability” for what the police are doing, the Daily Mail reports.

Omar, a criminal who should be in jail for marrying her brother to help him skirt immigration law, as well as enriching her husband and therefore herself with funky campaign finance “malarkey” ironically came three weeks before Minneapolis voters will decide whether or not to disband the police department and revamp it with a so-called “Department of Public Safety.”

Omar’s comments were rich given her constant and continuous attempts to dismantle the police department and gut its funding.

Last December, the city council voted unanimously to remove $8 million in funding for the department despite skyrocketing crime rates and amid a number of police officers either taking early retirement or outright resigning, tired of constant bashing from political and community leaders as well as operating shorthanded.

All of this of course came about resulting from the death of George Floyd, a career criminal and drug addict who died from positional asphyxia as well as drug intoxication from a combination of fentanyl and meth.

The death was blamed on former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin, who was convicted of murder based on a video showing him kneeling on the side of Floyd’s neck for nine minutes.

During the event in Minneapolis last Saturday, Omar slammed what she called the “dysfunctional” police department while directing blame for rising crime toward them as well.

“What we must also recognized is that the reduction in policing currently in our city and the lawlessness that is happening is due to two things,” the former Somali refugee who for some reason hates America said.

“One, the police have chosen to not fulfill their oath of office [rich coming from her] and to provide the public safety they owe to the citizens they serve,” she said.

“The Minneapolis police department is the most dysfunctional police department in our state and probably the country,” an amusing statement from a sitting member of Congress which is clearly the most dysfunctional entity in the U.S.

Continuing her unhinged rant, Omar said:

“The second part is that there has to be accountability,” she said.

“And someone that is actually taking responsibility for what the police does invest into. And that doesn’t exist in this moment.

And I do believe that the current charter that we have, that’s tied the hands of those who want to have that accountability, because we are mandated to have a specific amount of policing, we are mandated to, you know, have the kind of these union contracts that we have right now.

I don’t know any other big city in the state of Minnesota that has the charter that we have, it just doesn’t exist.’

Not surprisingly Omar was eviscerated on social media, mostly due to the fact she has been one of the leading loud mouths seeking to undermine and destroy law enforcement and the rule of law.

A number of users on social media pointed out that her attack on the police agency came just months after she actively campaigned to slash the police budget.

Jonah Goldberg, an author, and columnist tweeted: “Woman who wanted to dismantle the Minneapolis PD now says crime is due to Minneapolis PD not doing enough work.”

Still another user, Zaid Jilani noted it was “interesting” that Omar was blaming police “for depolicing” and noted that the department’s so-called “ineffectiveness” is the result that city councilors had been campaigning for.

Last year as in many Democratic cities, crime surged all across Minnesota, including a record number of homicides, according to data released earlier this summer by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.

Next week, Minneapolis will be holding a mayoral election and there are also questions on the ballot regarding the future of the Minneapolis police department.

One question addresses the proposal to disband the police department and replace it with a Department of Public Safety.

If the measure passes, the mayor would nominate a commissioner of the new agency, which would introduce a “comprehensive public health approach,” however would have no mandatory minimum of police and law enforcement staffing.

For an analogy as to how this will probably turn out, we invite you to watch The Purge or any of its sequels.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN- Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who fled war-torn third-world Somalia for the United States has shown her gratitude to this country by mother-f**king it left and right…kind of like the ungrateful brat who complains they didn’t get enough presents for Christmas.

Omar, who loves to act high and mighty and thumbs her nose at those who don’t accept her socialist ideology has been outed as a fraud, to nobody’s surprise.

Omar has long been suspected of having married her brother (and she preaches to us about morality) in order to skirt U.S. immigration laws. Up until now, the allegation was unproven. That appears to have changed.

According to PJ Media and numerous other sources, a covert DNA test has shown there is a 99.999998% chance that Omar and her second husband, Ahmed Elmi are in fact related…brother and sister, for that matter.

The DNA test was perpetrated when a so-called “shadowy Republican group” as the Daily Mail referred to it, was able to acquire a cigarette butt smoked by Omar and a straw used by Elmi, who is now living in Kenya.

On Wednesday, Republican strategist Anton Lazzaro of Minneapolis posted the results of the test online. In a completely ironic twist, Lazzaro was arrested a mere twelve hours later for alleged federal sex trafficking charges.

An Omar spokesman Jeremy Sleven dismissed the report and deflected to Lazzaro’s sex-trafficking arrest.

“This is a fraudulent website created by a man charged this week with child sex trafficking and lying to federal investigators to cover it up,’ Sleven said.

Rumors have circulated for years that Omar married her brother in order to allow him to acquire a green card and study in the U.S. at North Dakota State University. Law Enforcement Today has previously reported on this.

At the time, Omar was married to her first husband (she gets around apparently). So not only did she apparently marry her own brother, but she was also allegedly engaged in bigamy at the same time.

The three lived together for a period of time, along with Omar’s two children.

Omar had split up with her first husband in 2008, and married Elmi, allegedly her brother in 2009. They split up (conveniently) in 2011, and Omar went back to her first husband, where they conceived another child, while still married to Elmi. She finally divorced him in 2017, then remarried Hirsi just before the 2018 election.

In Omar’s 2017 divorce papers, she claimed, under penalty of perjury that she had no way of contacting Elmi, telling the court his last known location was London, England in June 2011.

However, lease and eviction records reviewed by PJ Media show that Elmi was in the United States the whole time, living only 2.6 miles away from Omar in downtown Minneapolis.

As reported last year by the New York Post, two FBI agents met with a “concerned party” in Minneapolis in October 2019, where they received what was described as a “treasure trove of documents” in reference to Omar’s marriage to Elmi. The FBI did nothing with those documents.

According to Miranda Devine writing in the Post this week, the whole Omar situation seems to smack of a cover up. She noted that the DNA analysis was conducted by a British company, Endeavor DNA Laboratories and that before Lazarro could share the results with the media, he was arrested by the FBI, put in jail and held pending a court hearing.

Devine noted that Lazarro’s website,, which published the DNA results was online only briefly and then taken down.

Devine said that Lazarro and a number of conservative donors had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars among three continents in order to track town Elmi, finally finding him in the UK where they were able to obtain his DNA from a straw.

The Minneapolis field office of the FBI, charged with investigating the allegations against Omar claims the “statute of limitations” had run out on the case, according to Special Agent Joy Hess. In a brief recorded conversation with an associate of Lazarro posted to his website last week, Hess alleged the FBI couldn’t pursue the case because Elmi had moved overseas.

“The statute of limitations is over,” Hess said. “According to the U.S. Attorney’s office, the statute of limitations is not something we can overcome in that matter…the individual in question left the country so there’s nothing to [do].”

Hess, when asked if the newly uncovered DNA evidence would be considered, said, “All I can just say is that according to the United States Attorney’s Office, the statute of limitations limits what we can do in this matter.”

According to Devine, there is no statute of limitations for immigration fraud.

Yet, for clearly partisan reasons there appears to be no desire to investigate the fact that Omar, a sitting representative in Congress, committed perjury when she claimed she had not committed immigration fraud.

The other question must be, as Devine posits, why were private citizens doing the job of the FBI, which should have conducted its own DNA tests.

Clearly, the FBI is busy hunting down people who trespassed at the US Capitol on January 6, and of course last year dispatched around six FBI agents to Talladega, Alabama to investigate a garage door pull in a NASCAR garage. They’re obviously quite “busy.”

Devine said the FBI did not respond to questions.

For our original report on Omar and her brother, we invite you to:


Although allegations have been circling for a few years already regarding Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar having married her brother, it appears as though the matter will finally be officially investigated.

Originally, Minnesota state Representative Steve Drazkowski filed a complaint against Omar for her 2009 marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi with Minnesota District of the Department of Justice. 

The complaint was filed last year at the order of the department head, US Attorney Erica MacDonald, and claimed that sources had revealed that the couple were in fact siblings.

Last October, the FBI was presented with documents by a “concerned party” regarding Omar’s 2009 marriage to Elmi.

The two FBI agents that received the information told the source that they would share the documents with Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the US Department of Education, due to Elmi having attended North Dakota State University as a citizen. 

However, none of the three agencies would “confirm the existence of any ongoing or potential investigation,” according to the New York Post.

Elmi was a British citizen when the happy couple wed.

The US Department of Education was contacted by the FBI to investigate possible federal student loan fraud.  If the marriage was in fact fraudulent, then Elmi wouldn’t have been eligible for any federal student loans he received.

Interestingly, Omar is facing investigation by ICE, an organization that she openly plans to do what she can to abolish.  Her website states:

“Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is an unreformable organization that has become increasingly militarizedbrutal, and unaccountable.”

I’ll be she feels that way even more now that it’s her fraudulent actions they’re looking to prove.

In July 18, 2019, The Blaze stated that its previously reported evidence:

“…appear[s] to give probable cause to investigate Omar for eight instances of perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, up to eight years of state and federal tax fraud, two years of federal student loan fraud, and even bigamy.

To be clear: The facts describe perhaps the most extensive spree of illegal misconduct committed by a House member in American history.”

It’s been reported that the Somalian community is well aware of the “open secret,” but don’t dare disclose the information.  Or at least not as a publicly named source.

Try to keep up:

Omar was engaged to Ahmed Hirsi in 2002 but the couple had a Muslim ceremony rather than a legal marriage.  They had 2 children and split up in 2008. 

Omar then legally married her brother…sorry…her alleged brother, Elmi, who is 3 years younger than her, in 2009.  The two “broke up” in 2011 but remained legally married.  In 2012, Omar and Hirsi reunited and had another child.

Despite being legally married to Elmi, Omar filed joint tax returns with Hirsi in 2014-2015.

In 2016, allegations popped up regarding Elmi and Omar being siblings on Somali Spot message board by a user named AbdiJohnson, which have since been deleted.

Omar legally divorced Elmi in 2017, filing for a no-fault divorce and claiming under penalty of perjury that she wasn’t able to locate Elmi due to his return to the UK.

Omar then married Hirsi in 2018, legally this time.

“Marital problems” developed, partially due to Omar’s rising stardom as a “squad” member and her constant travel, and partially due to her affair with her political strategist, Tim Mynett.  Omar and Hirsi’s divorce was finalized in November of last year after an October filing, although they kept it a secret for as long as possible.

Hirsi remarried 37 days after the divorce was finalized.

The New York Post obtained a plethora of documents and discovered that Omar appeared to be living with Hirsi since their Muslim union in 2002 despite the “split” and her marriage to her alleged brother. 

Reports show that Omar was physically living with both Elmi and Hirsi during the time she was supposed to be separated from Hirsi and married to Elmi.

Clear as mud?

Omar’s 2017 divorce from Elmi was based on her swearing under oath that she had no way of contacting him.  The documents, however, including lease and eviction records show that Elmi was living just 2.6 miles away from her at a Minneapolis apartment. 

A month after Omar filed the divorce papers Elmi was caught in Minneapolis driving on a cancelled license, and the address listed then was another apartment in Minneapolis.

Additionally, Omar’s campaign funds are being scrutinized due to the near $270,000 that has been funneled into her love affair, Mynett. 

The two deny the affair, but Mynett’s wife filed for divorce last August and the paperwork stated that Mynett had told her of his affairs with Omar in April, saying he was in love with the Representative. 

Specifically, the investigation into that matter seeks to determine whether Omar used travel funds illegally in order to have Mynett travel along with her wherever she went.  This investigation was sparked when Omar noted funds of $3,000 being spent on “travel,” but the entry wasn’t itemized as required for that category.

If the FBI is able to prove that Omar did in fact marry her brother, a sentiment she adamantly denies, the conviction of marriage fraud is punishable with up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

To end on a high note, here are some things that Omar’s fellow Somalians are currently saying about her on the Somali Spot message board:

Ahlubayt said “I generally don’t like Ilhan, how she turned out to be, pro Arab and etc.”

Muhammad Bire said:

“I think long term, even if she does win this race, she shot herself in the foot with antisemitism. Any American knows Jews control the media, money, and policies in this country,”


“You know, I can count on 10 hands the Somalis I know that would’ve been better suited for a position in congress. Compare her to her peers. She doesn’t seem very qualified.”

SuleymanPitt astutely noted:

“Ilhan purely because she is somali. I dont care about anything else. More somalis in power the better. If Xi Jing Ping was somali, I would be pro China.”

Cilmi-doon said:

“This Arab lady is a pawn of the white supremacists. She’ll just fade away,” and “As for Ilhan [Omar], I don’t agree with everything she says but, I support her based on the fact that she’s a successful sister. That much I owe her.”

Awdalia Rising said:

“Ms. Omar has embarrassed us enough.”

Mbxsys said:

“Why vote for a bedwench Somali though? Why empower that?” and “She stopped being a “sister” when she cheated on her black Muslim family for an old white Jewish assistant, gave him half a million illegally, and assisted in the killing of Margery Magill.”

General Asad said:

“Ilhan has made way too many enemies.  Her campaign video’s comment section is telling. No one will vote her in.”

Fingers crossed, General!

Editor note: In 2020, we saw a nationwide push to “defund the police”.  While we all stood here shaking our heads wondering if these people were serious… they cut billions of dollars in funding for police officers.  And as a result, crime has skyrocketed – all while the same politicians who said “you don’t need guns, the government will protect you” continued their attacks on both our police officers and our Second Amendment rights.

And that’s exactly why we’re launching this national crowdfunding campaign as part of our efforts to help “re-fund the police”.
