    Activists of the far-left Antifa movement began planning to foment a nationwide anti-government insurgency as early as November as the U.S. presidential campaign season kicked off in earnest, according to a law enforcement official with access to intelligence behind the shadowy group. . . . “Their Marxist ideology seeks not only to influence elections in the short term but to destroy the use of elections as the determining factor in political legitimacy.” Added Joe Myers, a former Defense Intelligence Agency official and counterinsurgency expert, “President Trump’s election and revitalization of America are a threat to Antifa’s nihilist goals.
  • Police officers shouldn't be responding to rape calls if the suspect runs away, Minnesota AG Keith Ellison [D] says

    Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison said it would be better to not have police officers responding to rape calls in situations when the rapist has already fled, according to The Federalist. Instead, Ellison suggests, it is preferable to have a social worker trained in interacting with rape victims respond to such a call. In making his point, Ellison dismisses police officers as people who are simply trained in how to use guns. "If you're a woman who's been a victim of a sexual assault, and the assailant ran away, wouldn't you rather talk to somebody who is trained in helping...

    The Minneapolis City Council president will vote to abolish the city's police department for a "transformative new model of public safety." On Thursday, Lisa Bender, the Minneapolis City Council president, committed to abolishing law enforcement in the city, which is home to approximately 430,000 residents, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. "Yes. We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department and replace it with a transformative new model of public safety," Bender said in response to Jeremiah Ellison, the son of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and another member of the city council. **SNIP** In an interview with local...

    Journalist Andy Ngo of The Post Millennial was infamously battered by a concrete milkshake last year, and now an ANTIFA terrorist wants to finish the job. Ngo recently received a death threat from Luis Marquez, an ANTIFA leader who hosts the Jungle to Jungle podcast. “I am going to be a cannibal, dude. I am going to chop the dude’s skull up and use it as a teacup.” he said. “I am going to feed people the body of Andy.”

    Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison said “nobody really knows” who is driving the raucous violence at protests related to the death of George Floyd and faulted the Justice Department for casting blame on left-wing militants. He said Attorney General William Barr, who pointed to “Antifa-like” tactics in the protests, should be investigating instead of “making incendiary comments.” “The truth is, nobody really knows,” Mr. Ellison told NBC’s Meet the Press. “What the exact political motivation is is unclear at this point.”

    Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison told people rioting in the streets over the death of George Floyd to direct their frustration toward the Minneapolis Police Department rather than the National Guard. . . . Ellison went on to say that riots such as the one unfolding in Minneapolis are how the “unheard get heard.” "Don't just dismiss that and ignore it and relegate it to just criminality and bad behavior,” he said. “Actually ask yourself what's going on there.”

    Attorney General Keith Ellison announced Sunday night that his office has sued a Minnesota restaurant owner who planned to reopen for business Monday. Kris Schiffler, owner of Shady’s Bar and Grill, planned on reopening his six locations for dine-in business Monday, two weeks earlier than the June 1 reopening date set by the state. He told one local outlet that he received a call from Ellison’s office Friday threatening $25,000 in fines per location, which would amount to $150,000 in total. Ellison’s office said it will continue to investigate other bars, restaurants, and taverns that threaten to “illegally reopen for...

    Dr. Rick Bright, who led the agency tasked with creating a coronavirus vaccine, is alleging that he was demoted for not bowing to pressure to direct money toward hydroxychloroquine, and has hired Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, who became known for representing Christine Blasey Ford, to make his case. Bright, the now-former director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), said in a statement Wednesday that he was also removed as deputy assistant secretary for preparedness and response and instead given a smaller position at the National Institutes of Health. Bright told the New York Times that he...

    According to MSNBC's Joy Reid and Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison (D), if you're someone who wants to see the economy reopen and get back to work, you must be some sort of Confederate racist. "Black people are being left in a situation where they're more vulnerable by default: less health care, jobs that are hourly, jobs where you're closer to people, stuck working near to each other," Reid said. "When you hear Donald Trump talking in this sort of faux-Confederate language about these lockdown orders – which are meant to save lives – and you see people with these...

    When Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, a Bernie Sanders supporter, defended so-called Bernie Bros on Twitter and asked for examples of the Vermont senator’s backers “being bad,” U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise shut him down with just six words. “I can think of an example,” Scalise tweeted back. Scalise, a Louisiana congressman and the House Republican minority whip, was one of several people injured during a 2017 shooting at a practice for the annual congressional baseball game in Alexandria, Va.

    Washington, DC - Muslim political leaders and academics are set to gather in Washington, DC, on Tuesday for what is being billed as the first national gathering of Muslims in politics in United States history. The historic moment comes as President Donald Trump and his supporters ramp up attacks on Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, the first two Muslim women in Congress. Organised by the Muslim Caucus, the Muslim Collective for Equitable Democracy 2019 will feature appearances by representatives Omar, as well as a host of other prominent Muslim American figures, including Gold Star father Khizr Khan and Keith Ellison,...

    Minnesota Attorney General and former Democratic National Committee Deputy Chair Keith Ellison had some strong words of advice for 2020 candidates on Tuesday: When it comes to paying attention to voters, be more like Donald Trump and less like Hillary Clinton. Speaking to Newsweek at an event hosted by The Concordia Forum in participation with Democrats Abroad in London, U.K., Ellison, who officially endorsed Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders for president last month, said that if 2020 candidates want to beat Trump, they will have to remember that the most important thing they can give voters "is your attention." "Our problem...

    Thanks, President Trump—a record 55 Muslim Americans won office last week. A lot of them probably would never have been inspired to run without you. The Muslims are no longer coming—they are here! Well, in reality Muslims have been in America and contributing to it even before the nation was formed, since approximately 15 percent of the slaves from Africa were Muslim. Advertisement But now Muslim Americans are “here” in a whole new way as a record number won their elections last Tuesday. And ironically many of these candidates were inspired to run in response to the most openly anti-Muslim...

    Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison has been elected as the state Attorney General, fending off his Republican opponent in an election mired with domestic abuse allegations. Ellison, the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, defeated Republican Doug Wardlow and his ambitious run to become the first Republican state attorney general in nearly half a century. Ellison was once seen as the comfortable favorite in the race, but his campaign was thrown into turmoil when his former girlfriend accused him in August of physical and emotional abuse when they dated.

    Liberals, Democrats and the legacy media are forever prattling about how the “toxic rhetoric” of President Trump before and after his election has inspired a culture of violence expressed most recently in their view in the flurry of packages sent to leading Democrats containing amateur night explosive devices some of which could only explode if you used a real explosive to set them off. Words do have consequences and can inspire the unhinged, but nowhere in Trump’s rhetoric are urgings to build and deliver explosive devices to your political opponents, not even those who urge their followers to “get in...

    Keith Ellison is Minnesota’s incumbent Fifth District congressman, deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee and DFL candidate for Minnesota attorney general. He was a long-time apostle of hate on behalf of Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam, though the local Minnesota media haven’t gotten around to revisiting the issue as Ellison seeks statewide office. Now he is an apostle of hate on behalf of the causes of the increasingly mainstream far left of the Democratic Party. Speaking last week at a debate with GOP candidate Doug Wardlow, Ellison explained that he had operated under the impression that Farrakhan...

    Karen Monahan's son posted a cryptic message about his mom and Keith Ellison, a Democratic Representative in Minnesota. Her son made some nasty claims about Ellison dragging her off a bed, yelling at her, and a few other things, which you can read here if you desire. Karen supported her son's message and deemed it true. Now that she's out in public with her accusations towards Ellison, she's letting people know the story as time goes on. At one point she started publishing screenshots of private messages that she shared with Ellison. We have some of them here. They might...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Days after a poll showed Keith Ellison trailing in the race for attorney general following allegations of domestic abuse against him, the Democrat went on the offensive against Republican Doug Wardlow on Thursday, saying his opponent's work for a conservative Christian legal advocacy group against gay rights shows that he has an agenda of discrimination. Ellison issued a statement pointing out that President Donald Trump's administration told the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday that a federal appeals court got the law wrong when it ruled last year against a Michigan funeral home that fired a transgender worker...

    It is one of the biggest controversies this election cycle in Minnesota. The accusation of domestic abuse made against DFL Attorney General candidate Keith Ellison by his ex-girlfriend and party activist, Karen Monahan. "I really had to grabble with coming out to share my story,” said Monahan. “I had to face my own fears, the fear of isolation, the smears, the lies, the threats-- that's hard to move through." Monahan sat down for her first sit-down interview here in Minnesota with 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS after she came forward in August with allegations against Ellison.
