    Brotherhood-linked Congressman Keith Ellison is giving up his ultra-safe seat in the U.S. House of Representatives to run for the post of attorney general of Minnesota, a risky move in a state that isn’t as radically left-wing as his home district. The primary election is Aug. 14. Ellison, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) deputy chairman who essentially endorsed the violent anarchists and communists of the subversive Antifa movement, claims he wants to be the North Star State’s top lawyer to litigate away in a quest for justice. “It was attorneys general who led the fight against [President Trump’s so-called] Muslim...

    A video posted online Monday shows a Democratic Party leader wearing a T-shirt calling for an end to U.S. borders while participating in a local May Day parade in Minnesota last Friday. Democratic National Committee deputy chair Keith Ellison, D-Minn., wore a black shirt that read, "Yo no creo en fronteras." In English, that sentence translates to, "I don't believe in borders." Ellison, a progressive Democrat, said in March he supports a new type of welfare proposal that would have the government pay people a basic salary if technological advancements put them out of work. "I personally do think that...

    Acting consumer protection chief Mick Mulvaney on Wednesday defended the decision to put frosted glass on his office at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau against accusations that it sent the wrong message about transparency. Rep. Keith Ellison, Minnesota Democrat, confronted Mr. Mulvaney, a former member of Congress who is now the White House budget chief and the acting consumer chief, about the office during a hearing on Capitol Hill. Mr. Ellison displayed a photo of the office with the frosted glass. “You are the champion of transparency, right?” he said. “And yet you have obscured yourself, physically. And I find...

    Democratic National Committee vice-chairman Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) said he was offended people continue to ask him to denounce anti-Semitism, despite questions over his relationship with Nation of Islam leader and rabid anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. Ellison was taking questions at the Harvard Institute of Politics when a student mentioned rising anti-Semitism and Farrakhan, who has made many anti-Semitic statements, the Washington Examiner reports. Ellison has had multiple meetings with Farrakhan since being elected to public office, despite the Washington Post giving him their highest rating for lies after claiming he had "no relationship" with Farrakhan. "What I’m telling you...

    Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.), deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, recently praised the concept of a universal basic income, saying it "has a lot of merit." Ellison made the comment at a forum in Minneapolis, where he discussed the issue of people losing their jobs due to technological advancements. "I personally do think that universal basic income is a [sic] idea that has a lot merit," Ellison said. "I don't think that universal basic income means that people sit around; I think it means do other things that are necessary." "There are things that are valuable and important...

    Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) on Sunday wrote an op-ed dismissing concerns about his previous praise for Nation of Islam minister Louis Farrakhan, who has repeatedly used disparaging language to condemn white people and Jewish people. Several House Democrats have come under fire in recent weeks for their association with Farrakhan, including Ellison, who recently earned a "Four Pinocchios" rating from the Washington Post fact checker concerning his interactions with the controversial Nation of Islam leader. Ellison, the Democratic National Committee deputy chair, penned in his Medium op-ed that he worked with the Nation of Islam in 1995 to organize...

    Keith Ellison has a Medium post denying his extensive history with Farrakhan's Nation of Islam. The post, with its references to MLK and Heschel is very blatantly aimed at liberal Jews. Too bad it's a bizarre series of distortions, evasions and lies. Ellison treats his time with the Nation of Islam as a conspiracy invented by the right to divide blacks and Jews. And claims that his only association with the NOI was the Million Man March.

    Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., said Sunday that he had not met with or spoken to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan since 2013 — despite the anti-Semitic minister’s claim that the congressman visited him in Farrakhan’s Washington D.C. suite more recently. Ellison, the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, wrote in a blog post on Medium that “I do not have and have never had a relationship with Mr. Farrakhan, but I have been in the same room as him.” According to Ellison, he and Farrakhan attended the same New York meeting with Iran President Hassan Rouhani “and nearly...

    Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) said that none of his colleagues ever asked him about his connections with controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan as he campaigned to take over as the lead sponsor of a single-payer health care bill, ripping the media for focusing on "this Farrakhan thing." Ellison, who serves as deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, has faced increased scrutiny lately over his prior membership in the Nation of Islam and his reported meetings in recent years with Farrkhan, an outspoken bigot who espouses conspiracy theories about Jews and whites. On Wednesday, Ellison received unanimous...

    Several top Democratic congressmen are distancing themselves from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi over her harsh criticism of President Trump's tax cuts. Democratic National Committee Vice Chairman Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) pushed back on Pelosi's comment that bonuses paid to employees by various companies were mere "crumbs." "The income inequality is so bad, that if you could pick up $1,000 or $900, maybe it helps," he said in comments reported by Axios.

    Three Democratic congressmen attended a private dinner hosted by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, a new report reveals. Reps. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, Andre Carson of Indiana and Gregory Meeks of New York attended the private dinner, along with Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite who leads the black supremacist group Nation of Islam. Iran is the number one state sponsor of terrorism, according to the United States government, which has listed the Islamic Republic as a state sponsor of terror since 1984. Rouhani was in New York for a United Nations meeting and held the dinner party just hours...

We’ve followed his rise since he won the DFL nomination to run for the Fifth District seat in 2006 in ( “Louis Farrakhan’s first congressman”) (October 9, 2006), in the companion Power Line post (“Keith Ellison for dummies,”) and in (“The Ellison elision”) (February 3, 2014).

    In the fall of 2015, a year before the presidential election, the Democratic National Committee, we now know, was bought for the equivalent of a pawn shop by the campaign of Hillary Clinton. The party organization was still deeply in debt from the 2012 campaign, owing millions to banks and vendors, burning through what little cash it had at a stunning rate of some $3 million to $4 million per month. By August 2015, the DNC was becoming unable to make payroll and approaching the equivalent of bankruptcy, according to a former senior party official, who requested anonymity, arguing that being quoted publicly...

    Even as Democrats publicly and loudly decry corporatist political “dark money,” billionaire Democrats and other donors funnel hundreds of millions to radical and violent causes.   Barely a week had passed after Donald Trump’s historic upset in the November 8 presidential election, but some of the world’s richest individuals were already launching a counteroffensive. George Soros and his fellow deep-pocket funders of the Democratic Party and left-wing causes gathered with a lineup of party activists and luminaries from Hollywood, K Street, and Wall Street for a three-day “investment conference” (November 15-17) at the luxurious Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, D.C....

    Last month Keith (Hakim Mohammad) Ellison of Minnesota became the first Muslim elected to serve in the United States Congress and shocked many Americans by declaring that he would take his oath of office by placing his hand on the Quran rather than the Bible. Can a true believer in the Islamic doctrine found in the Quran swear allegiance to our Constitution? Those who profess a sincere belief in Allah say “no!” In 1789, George Washington, our first president under the Constitution, took his oath to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. So help me God.”...

    Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) has had problems with anti-Semitism before: remaining associated with Louis Farrakhan and calling his law school colleagues mean slurs. But now he's comparing undocumented immigrants to Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Discussing the DACA decision, Ellison said, "And if you ask yourself what would I do if I was a gentile in 1941, if my Jewish neighbors were under attack by the by the Nazis? Would I give them sanctuary? You might be about to find out what you would do." Ellison, who was a candidate to lead the Democratic Party earlier this year, is saying...

    Now we're told that some racism and supremacism is perfectly okay. Nor is the DNC troubled by the fact that its own National Chairman, Thomas Perez, who served as Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division during President Obama's first term, has repeatedly shown himself to be a profoundly ugly racialist. Under the rubric of “disparate impact” theory, for instance, Perez believes that bankers and mortgage lenders who reject the loan applications of blacks at a higher rate than the loan applications of whites — regardless of the reason — are akin to Klansmen. While such lenders discriminate...
