  • Tired Dem Donors Feel Like Their Money Got Burned

    Democratic donors stung by Hillary Clinton’s upset loss in the presidential race feel like they just set their money on fire. The sore feelings are a huge problem for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which is trying to rebuild its image and reinvigorate a defeated party in time for challenging midterm elections in 2018. It’s also a worry for top liberal activists as they prepare for war with President-elect Donald Trump and a GOP Congress that is hell-bent on rolling back President Obama’s accomplishments. Many Democratic donors still feel burned by the party’s 2016 election losses and what they see...

    ADL: Ellison’s Racist Comments Disqualifies Him To Lead DNCBy Joel Leyden Israel News AgencyNew York, NY — December 1, 2016 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which only last month defended and described Rep. Keith Ellison as “a man of good character”, have now decided to expose Ellison for racist comments he has made against Jews. In 2010, Ellison stated that US foreign policy was directed by Israel. By making this comment Ellison reinforced age-old racist stereotypes about Jewish control of the US government. Ellison, a past member of the radical Nation of Islam and supporter of anti-semite advocate Louis Farrakhan,...

Ellison, D-Minn., is a leading contender for the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee, despite a record of tough criticism of Israel that pro-Israel insiders say would easily have disqualified him a decade ago. A supporter of the two-state solution and a frequent visitor to Israel, he also voted against additional funding for Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system in 2014. In 2009, Ellison spear-headed a letter from 54 Democrats to Presdient Obama urging him to...

In late 1993 and early 1994, Keith Ellison and I were both deeply involved in politics and policy, he as a civil rights lawyer and radio talk-show host in Minnesota, and I as legal counsel to a United States senator.

    The Democrats’ extensive losses in the 2010 and 2014 midterms (as well as other off-year elections in 2009, 2011, 2015 and the Governors races in 2012) have left their party hollowed out beneath the White House, which is one reason why the top two contenders in their presidential primary are a 68-year-old who arrived in Washington in 1993, and a 74-year-old who has never held a leadership position in Congress.

But the ceiling went unbroken and she conceded privately to Trump. Instead, the unenviable task of addressing Clinton's crestfallen supporters fell to John Podesta, Clinton's campaign...
