Did. Rep. Ilhan Omar marry her brother?
It's an open question.
But the evidence is mounting that a full investigation is needed into Omar's activities in relation to a man she married in 2009 who may be... her brother. The evidence leaves a trail that prosecutors could follow for, among other things, immigration fraud, tax fraud, loan fraud and marriage fraud. Even the left-leaning Snopes can't draw a firm conclusion, saying the claim is "unproven" yet noting a few of the many unanswered questions:
"Why did Omar’s 2016 campaign literature reference Ahmed Hirsi as her “husband” when she hadn’t yet divorced Ahmed Elmi [the alleged brother] or married Hirsi? Why did Omar say in her 2017 divorce filing that she’d had no contact with Elmi since June of 2011 when she was seemingly photographed with him in London in 2015? Why has Elmi not put the matter to rest by coming forward and explaining the nature of his relationship with Omar?" (Snopes)

Let's face it. There's a serious effort under way to undermine our nation. Nancy Pelosi says borders are "immoral." Omar says Trump is "fascist." The chasm separating patriotic Americans and the Far Left that controls most of D.C., the media and Silicon Valley is growing by the day. That's why we need your help. Grassfire is taking steps to enhance our grassroots services to our team, but these costs are not in our budget and we need $10,000 OVER AND ABOVE our budgeted expenses between now and the end of the month to make it happen (see below for more).

Yesterday during a Senate Judiciary Committee subcommittee hearing, an expert witness gave shocking testimony of Google's oversized influence on the 2016 presidential election.
The expert witness -- Dr. Robert Epstein -- has been studying Google's use of technology to influence elections. His conclusion is that Google swayed MILLIONS of votes in favor of Hillary Clinton. On the actual number of votes Google manipulated, Epstein said:
“The range is between 2.6 and 10.4 million votes depending on how aggressive they were in using the techniques that I’ve been studying, such as the search engine manipulation effect, the search suggestion effect, the answer bot effect, and a number of others. They control these and no one can counteract them. These are not competitive. These are tools that they have at their disposal exclusively.”
Sen. Ted Cruz was stunned and remarked that this should be the "headline" coming out of the hearing.
Of course, it wasn't.
The Left Media totally ignored the point. Meanwhile, they dragged us through two years of a bogus "Russia collusion" witch hunt when the real stories involved Clinton-Russia collusion and Silicon Valley's overwhelming support for Hillary that swung MILLIONS of votes in her favor. And it's about to happen again in 2020.

Today's headlines center on the controversy over the "send her back" chants during President Trump's campaign rally yesterday. The President was correct today in saying that the phrase is not appropriate. But as our poll confirmed, the vast majority of grassroots conservatives believe that if you don't love this country, you are free to leave! What the Left fails to understand is that the American people have simply had enough of watching their country get trashed, their flag disgraced, and their anthem dishonored. We know the media is biased against grassroots conservatives. We know everything will be spun against us. And we're tired of sitting by silently as members of Congress disrespect our President and disrespect our nation.
Against such forces, here we stand, a band of patriotic citizens joined together by our common desire to see liberty and limited government re-established in our land.
I'm not saying that Grassfire is alone in the fight. But we are one of the largest and most active networks of patriotic, grassroots Americans in the nation. In just the past 30 days, through the Grassfire team we've seen:
- 317,004 citizen engagements on issues;
- 29,176 petitions signed;
- 21,420 faxes sent;
- and 37,133 NEW PEOPLE connect to the Grassfire network!
That's an amazing impact! But right now, we need your help. Grassfire is taking steps to enhance our grassroots services to our team. These extra expenses are not in our budget and we need $10,000 OVER AND ABOVE our budgeted expenses between now and the end of the month to make it happen. We simply must GROW Grassfire and EXPAND to meet the challenges that are coming against our liberties. Our need is a pittance compared to what the Far Left is spending to destroy liberty -- and a drop in the bucket compared to what Google spends EVERY DAY to swing these issues against us. But if we stand together, we can build a grassroots army to fight back.
If you can help with a contribution of $30 or more, we'll send you President Trump's first presidential portrait, beautifully reprinted and suitable for framing. This portrait is unlike any other recent president's official photo. The sheer determination on the President's face says it all! Most importantly, you have my commitment that we are working to build the best Grassfire possible so you can have a greater impact on these key issues affecting our families and our nation.
Will you help Grassfire today so we can fight for your liberties tomorrow? Every dollar will help.
Thanks for your consideration, and thanks for the stand you are taking for liberty!
