Amash: Rallying to Impeach Trump is ‘More Important’ Than Passing Legislation in Congress

Rep. Justin Amash tried to explain away his lack of success at a town hall event yesterday.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) explained the legislative philosophy that he has adhered to throughout his years in Congress during a constituent town hall yesterday in Grand Rapids, and it’s arguably as stunning as his impeachment push.

Amash actually believes that he’s more successful than his peers despite never getting any legislation passed.

After receiving a question asking him to prove that he has “done things” while in Congress, Amash was unable to give any concrete examples. He instead explained that his message – the core of which is now arguing in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump – is what matters, not his actual achievements.

“I’ve spent a lot of time on civil liberties issues, particularly FISA reform and Section 215, which is the metadata collection,” Amash said, despite the fact that he is supporting the biggest FISA abuse in history by pushing the Russian collusion hoax and the illegal spying that underlined the investigation.

Amash gave himself credit for introducing bills and taking them to the House floor for debates before admitting that none of them have ever passed.

“We’ve had a lot of those contests, and yes, we have come out on the bottom,” Amash said.

He blamed a conspiracy of Republicans and Democrats working in tandem to make sure that he fails at getting anything accomplished in real terms as a Congressman.

“I think that it’s a false premise to assume that because a member of Congress passed a particular piece of legislation or is… getting their amendments on the floor that that member of Congress is accomplishing a lot,” Amash said.

He explained that his true value is getting his message out, which includes supporting Democratic-led efforts to impeach Trump despite the fact that he was ultimately cleared of any Russian collusion by the Mueller report.

“I think more important than any of that is having a member of Congress who’s talking about partisanship, talking about the issues that matter, trying to inform the public about what’s going on,” Amash said.

He believes that his social media posts and other sanctimonious diatribes are what’s truly important, not so much actually getting things accomplished for his constituents.

“I can get a message out there that resonates with people here and across the country… and that’s more important than any legislative thing than I can do in Congress,” Amash explained.

Amash has been working overtime getting his message out to the public in recent weeks, and it has been almost solely focused on ginning up support to impeach Trump.

After FBI spook Robert Mueller announced his special counsel investigation was completed earlier today with no evidence produced showing Trump being guilty of any Russian collusion, Amash still supports Congress taking action to impeach the President.

Instead of working to get legislation passed, Amash will continue to use his Congressional seat as a bully pulpit to undermine his own political party’s chances at retaining the presidency heading into 2020.

Somali Community Leader Admits Ilhan Omar DID Marry Her Brother as Part of Immigration Fraud Scheme

They are now admitting the obvious.

Published

on

Somali community leader Abdihakim Osman, 40, has confirmed that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) did in fact marry her brother for the purposes of committing immigration fraud.

Osman gave an interview to the Daily Mail in which he gave the timeline of how and why the illicit arrangement happened.

“No one knew there had been a wedding until the media turned up the marriage certificate years later,” Osman said.

Osman contends that Omar married her brother Ahmed Elmi in 2009 so he could stay in the states and go to college. Elmi is extremely effeminate and believed to be homosexual. After he married Omar, Elmi became a citizen and started studying at North Dakota State University beside his sister.

Omar’s office would not formally deny the allegations after the Daily Mail reached out to them.

“The Congresswoman is focused on the work her constituents sent her to Washington to accomplish,” Omar’s spokesman said.

Osman noted that Elmi was often around Omar and her now ex-husband Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, nicknamed “Southside,” who was well-known in the Somali community as a soccer star. At the time, she was married to Hirsi in a Muslim ceremony that was not formalized by the state.

“People began noticing that Ilhan and Southside (Hirsi) were often with a very effeminate young guy,” Osman said.

‘He was very feminine in the way he dressed — he would wear light lipstick and pink clothes and very, very, short shorts in the summer. People started whispering about him, ” he added. “[Hirsi] and Ilhan both told me it was Ilhan’s brother and he had been living in London but he was mixing with what were seen as bad influences that the family did not like. So they sent him to Minneapolis as ‘rehab.'”

Osman, who administrates a Facebook page for Somalis called Xerta Shekh, noted that Omar tried to keep her illicit marriage with her brother quiet from the Somali community but word eventually got out.

‘When [Hirsi] and Ilhan got married, a lot of people were invited. It was a big Islamic wedding uniting two large clans in the Minneapolis community,” Osman said. “I would say there were 100-150 people there. When she married Elmi, no one even knew about it.”

Due to the lack of paperwork from third-world Somalia, it would be difficult to conclusively prove that Omar and Ersi are brothers in the court of law. This has allowed them to get away with their fraud for over a decade now.

Christian minister Wilecia Harris reportedly married Omar and Elsi. She runs the Great and Mighty Works Ministries in Richfield, Minnesota, which is described as a “nondenominational, Bible believing, Bible teaching, and Bible living ministry that believes in being a living example of Jesus the anointed one!” Osman believes that they had to go outside of the Somali community to conduct their marriage because a Muslim imam would have been more likely to realize they were siblings.

“She said she needed to get papers for her brother to go to school. We all thought she was just getting papers together to allow him to stay in this country. Once she had the papers they could apply for student loans,” Osman said.

“They both moved to North Dakota to go to school but she was still married to [Hirsi]. In the Somali way, the only marriage that mattered was the one in the mosque. Ilhan came back to Minneapolis all the time to see her family, but her brother didn’t come with her,” he added.

After these new revelations, further investigations are needed into Omar’s dark past, and the anti-American Congresswoman may need to submit to a DNA test to determine conclusively that Elmi is her brother.
