Freshman Congressman Denver Riggleman (R-VA) is starting up his first re-election campaign, and he is counting on support from President Donald Trump to help him keep his 5th District Congressional seat. He even participated in a photo op earlier this month delivering paperwork to put Trump on the ballot for 2020 in the state of Virginia.
Riggleman has quickly gained a reputation as a Republican who will not stand for conservative values. He officiated a gay marriage, thumbing his nose at the Christian conservatives of Virginia who supported him, as one of his first high-profile moves as a sitting Congressman last year.
“My real belief is that government shouldn’t be involved in marriage at all, but if it is, everybody has to be treated equally before the law,” Riggleman told the Washington Post. “And that is part of our Republican creed. And it also comes down to love is love. I’m happy to join two people together who obviously love each other.”
Riggleman’s libertarian brand of politics also caused him to not support President Trump during his presidential campaign against Hillary Clinton in 2016. Riggleman called Trump a “buffoon” and said there was little difference between he and Hillary Clinton in a social media post shortly before the 2016 election.
“I will be writing myself in for President,” Riggleman declared with just a couple of weeks before the election.
In his post, Riggleman noted that he had “no problem with Trump being investigated by the media” before giving Clinton credit for having a “much better political machine” than Trump.
He wrote that Clinton voters should “take a second look at her incredible mountain of pass transgressions.” Despite his apparent disdain for Clinton, it wasn’t enough for Riggleman to support Trump who he called a “buffoon.”
“There’s good people voting for [Clinton]. Just make sure you vote with eyes wide open,” Riggleman said. “The American public gets what they deserve… we put these 2 buffoons in these positions. No one else is to blame.”
Riggleman bashed Trump and refused to support him in 2016 because he shares his political ideology with the globalist Koch network. Riggleman’s principal campaign committee, Friends of Denver Riggleman Inc., received a donation from Koch Industries in June 2018. Riggleman has also received a substantial amount of money from a free market group that incites right-wing opposition against Trump’s trade agenda.
One of Riggleman’s biggest donors is the Club for Growth, who gave his principal campaign committee a substantial donation of $104,834 during the 2018 election cycle. The Club for Growth is one of the most influential conservative groups standing in opposition to President Donald Trump’s ‘America First’ trade agenda.
“Tariffs, on our nation’s closest allies no less, will reverse the positive impact of President Trump’s historic tax cuts,” Club for Growth President David McIntosh said. “Furthermore, history tells us tariffs will harm our nation’s economic growth and will trigger a trade war that will wreak the greatest harm on hardworking Americans.
“Club for Growth encourages the Trump Administration to go back to the drawing board and halt the imposition of these damaging tariffs,” he added.
Big League Politics contacted Riggleman to give him a chance to address the comments that he made in 2016, but he failed to respond before publication.

Somali Community Leader Admits Ilhan Omar DID Marry Her Brother as Part of Immigration Fraud Scheme
They are now admitting the obvious.
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.
