New DNC Deputy Keith Ellison's Islamic Agenda for Congress-has a plan to make it happen

And he has a plan to make it happen, says former CAIR intern.

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the new deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and the first Muslim elected to Congress, has a plan to recruit additional Muslim lawmakers like him -- including possible candidates sponsored by a terror-tied Islamist group for which he helped raise millions of dollars, according to a source who once prayed alongside him in the basement of the Capitol.

Ellison has held Friday, or jummah, prayers with other Muslims, including staffers from the Congressional Muslim Staff Association and officials from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), in a prayer room, or musallah, in the lower level of the Capitol building.

CAIR has been declared a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates and was named by federal prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terrorist-funding operation.

A former CAIR intern who prayed with Ellison says Ellison once boasted that his breaking of the Muslim barrier on the Hill would usher in dozens of other Muslim lawmakers like him, and that he had an election-by-election vision for increasing their ranks.

“In the summer of 2008, I was working as an intern at CAIR,” Chris Gaubatz recalled in an exclusive interview with “During a Friday prayer at the Capitol Building, Ellison was talking about the second Muslim congressman being elected (Andre Carson) and said, “Insha’allah (Allah willing), next election we will have four Muslim congressman, and insha’allah, after that eight, and insha’allah, after that 16.’ ”

He said he also envisioned a Congressional Muslim Caucus that would rival the Black Caucus in size and influence, and push for “Muslim-friendly public policies,” such as gutting the Patriot Act, criminalizing the profiling of Muslims in terrorism investigations, and preventing the surveillance of mosques.

Ellison’s vision did not play out, as Democrats lost control of Congress to Republicans.

But at Saturday’s DNC elections, Tom Perez, who edged out Ellison as chairman of the committee, broke with party rules and named Ellison deputy chairman, creating a new position at the DNC. The DNC leadership controls spending priorities, organization and messaging for Democrats, as well as influences the recruitment and training of candidates.

“We have to recruit the right kind of candidates,” Ellison asserted in a recent DNC candidate forum.

His new key role in bringing more Muslims into Congress concerns security experts, because Ellison has made anti-Semitic remarks to Muslim groups and aligned himself with known radical Islamists, and would likely recruit more Islamists with help from terrorist front groups like CAIR.

Gaubatz says he expects Ellison’s close relationship with CAIR — he was a frequent visitor at CAIR’s headquarters just three blocks from the Capitol and was treated like an “honorary” CAIR board member — to continue at the DNC.
“He trusts CAIR's leaders,” he said, "and I have no doubt they will have an influence in the selection and grooming of political candidates for office."

Known as “CAIR’s congressman,” Ellison has spoken at several CAIR events, including national fundraising dinners held by the group in 2007, 2008 and 2014, when Ellison was awarded the group’s highest honor.
“I personally witnessed Ellison fundraising for CAIR,” said Gaubatz, who shortly after leaving his job at CAIR’s Washington headquarters blew the whistle on a senior CAIR attorney who allegedly defrauded Muslims seeking help with immigration cases out of thousands of dollars.

CAIR, in turn, helped Ellison raise tens of thousands of dollars for his congressional campaigns. Internal CAIR memos obtained by the bestseller, “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America,” also show that CAIR provided Ellison “phone sheets” from its database of Muslim voters to help get out the vote for him in his Minneapolis district, which includes a growing Somali community that a federal judge recently warned harbors a large "terrorist cell.”

The FBI has banned CAIR from both national and local outreach activities held by the bureau, pending further investigation into its terrorism ties.
In 2010, Ellison was recorded making anti-Semitic remarks at a 2010 fundraiser hosted by a Virginia Muslim who has praised violent “jihad” against Israel.
Ellison was embroiled in controversy soon after he was first elected in 2006, when he insisted on taking the oath of office with his hand on a copy of the Quran.
Ellison’s office did not respond to requests for comment.

CAIR needs to be blackballed as the terrorist-conspiring organization that it is.

Islam, in general, need to be treated as the Cancer on Humanity that it is.

Since Ellison is a Different Monday, none of that subversive activity matters.

Agreed—it has a dictate to the violent overthrow of the rest of the world for a hideously repressive and regressive form of government. Why it should ever be considered a religion without such an integral component—which yes, should be outlawed—is beyond me. Even just the death for apostasy should make it an illegal cult IMO.

COME ON...there's a Congressional Muslim Staff Association?

Name names, immediately.


REFERENCE--Does this criminal family of four brothers and a spouse that stole govt property and US ntl security secrets belong to the Congressional Muslim Staff Association?

CHECK IT OUT The Pittsburgh FBI field office (Cyber-security Unit) is trying to identify those behind breaches of the DNC's computer systems. The 2015 and early 2016 breaches exposed the internal communications of Democrat party officials as the convention got underway........

The FBI needs to look into the Muslim Brothers Imran, Abid, and Jamal Awan and Imram's wife Hina Alvi.

The Muslim brothers are currently being described as three sketchy, rogue intel staffers that compromised House Intelligence, and Foreign Affairs Committee Members.:

Abi Awan, Imran Awan and Jamal Awan, are three brothers, foreign nationals who worked within the IT department for members of the House Permanent Intelligence Committee and ere apparently responsible for a security breach on Capitol Hill........including that of Cong Debbie asserman Schultz----the DNC chair.

There is a fourth brother and his Muslim wife involved in sensitive political IT....all share a residence.


<><> Extent of DNC assistance to the three members of the intelligence panel and five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs who were among the dozens of elected members employing the suspects on a shared basis.

<><>Were govt intel computers ever transported off-premises?

<><>Did the FBI and/or Secret Service accompany and supervise the transport of the server?

<><> Did the three brothers have an active email account?

<><> Was there continuity of intel computer activity or did the intel computers ever go off-line?

<><> Who received govt intel?

<><>Did the three brother get officially qualified by the DNC to handle national-security-level data?

<><> Did the three brothers ever “upgrade, manage, and secure” the DNC server.

<><> What - specifically - did they do?

<><> Did the DNC vet the three brothers security clearance to handle this type of intel?

<><> What were the DNC firewall protocols in place at the time?

<><>Who, by name, had access to intel computers, and the administrative authorization to do so?

<><>When was that authorization given?

<><>Did the three brothers ever remove all data from the intel computers?

<><> Was malware or antivirus also on the server?

<><> Was the inherent firewall, virus protection, or operating system “upgraded, managed, and secured” by the brothers?

<><> Did the DNC report any incidents reported such as DOS attack, hacking, etc. How were they resolved?

<><> Did the three brothers maintain the DNC intel computer?

<><> Does the DNC know if the House Permanent Intelligence Committee computers in functioning condition at this time?

<><> Does the DNC have the work schedule of the brothers just prior to being outed for security breaches?

<><> Were normal and regular backup procedures executed on the server?

<><> Where are the back-ups kept?

<><> If no backups were taken, does the DNC have a disaster recovery location? Where is that?

<><> Did the DNC have a backup plan if the House Permanent Intelligence Committee plan intel equipment failed or was found to have been compromised?

<><> Does the DNC list other foreign nationals (from countries President Obama identified as terrorist countries) employed on Capitol Hill?

<><> The DNC should list foreign nationals by name and country who currently have access to US intel and are using govt computers.

I completely agree. Islam is not anything other than a Sociopolitical Doctrine that hides behind the facade of “religion”. The sooner that people realize this fact, the sooner that we can treat Islam as the Cancer on Humanity that it is.
