She either married her brother or she didn't.
The assertion that she married her brother is what "unproven" refers to.

Oh right. I wouldn't want you to get fired from your lucrative career as an Uber driver



I don't go to strip clubs, I don't drive an Uber, and I've never driven any Eastern European girls from a strip to a motel.

I'm not advocating for you to go to strip clubs and protest or anything like that. A simple "Hey, are you in trouble or need help?" while you are ferrying strippers is all I ask. You can't even bother to do that.

Despicable.

I'm not quite sure of what you're advocating here.

Are you suggesting that Uber drivers should ask EVERY stripper they pick up whether or not she's in trouble or needs help? Because despite the fearmongering about human trafficking, the vast majority of strippers and sex workers in the United States are doing the work of their own free will.

Human trafficking is an abomination, and everything possible should be done to stop it, but over the past few years, plenty of stings and prosecutions that claim to be going after "human traffickers" end up doing little more than depriving consensual sex workers of their livelihood. That was the case with the feds' shutting down of Backpage.com and arresting its owners. That was the case with the sting in Florida that caught Patriots owner Robert Kraft. Early in the piece, the US attorneys were hyping it as a big trafficking sting, but in the end basically all they managed was some low-level prostitution charges.

Cops and agents and prosecutors love alleging or implying human trafficking in their vice stings, because it gets the public on board with their moral crusades against consensual sex work.

Of course not.

That was some whiplash right there, because it sure seemed like that was exactly what he was advocating in the past. Even though I have explicitly stated all along that these were chatty, friendly people who did not remotely seem to be in distress in any way. Therefore this is quite the sudden shift in attitude from Manson.

So you're claiming that every stripper is Eastern European, lives with a group of similar women, and always move on after a few months? 'Cause otherwise, you're not talking about the same thing.

It appears Ms. Omar's off-again, on-again marriage is off again.
Quote:
Omar and Hirsi were married in a religious ceremony in 2002. The two separated in 2008, then legally remarried in 2018.

“There has been an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage relationship,” the court documents filed in Minnesota say.
Her soon-to-be ex is apparently broke - maybe he can get a job as a political consultant.

Regards,
Shodan

Maybe she should find an Eastern European model working in the US on the wrong kind of visa to marry. I hear that has no political consequences at all.

Bring the new one in, on an "Einstein visa" and then "chain" the rest of the family in too. And give them top jobs in national security or decision making posts.

At least it's not a brother. Or maybe it was - it's hard to keep track.

For some, perhaps. For the rest of us, not so much.

I'd just like to point out that about 2 weeks ago, I asked Kearsen1 to post a cite for a claim he made about me, and he still hasn't done so. Seems likely he was pulling stuff out of his ass, and rather than say "oops, I guess I made a mistake" (which isn't a big deal -- I've made mistakes too), he chooses to ignore it.
