  • Guess who is warning the Democrats' base to back off on Russia Conspiracy Talk!

    American Thinker ^ | 05/22/2017 | Thomas Lifson
    OK, gang, time to move along – other stuff is more important.  That's the logical strategy for the Democratic Party leadership to signal the base that the Russia conspiracy narrative has served its purpose and belongs in the Memory Hole.  You don't want to go farther out on the limb of an unfounded charge dreamed up to explain away the failure of Hillary and her campaign henchpeople to pull off the expected victory. But such a judicious approach is not the métier of rabble-rouser Thomas Perez, the party chairman.  Into the breach leaped Representative Keith Ellison, the consolation prize-holder of the invented title...
  • WHOA! Keith Ellison Blames Obama For Dems Massive Election Failures

    04/20/2017 7:24:05 AM PDT · by davikkm · 38 replies
    The DNCs deputy chairman Keith Ellison recently made an astounding and true admission about Obama and the Democratic Party. While the last ten years worked out quite well for Obama, the party suffered and much of the blame for that lays with Obama himself. Democrats lost over 1,000 seats under failed President Obama.

    Shortly after The Democratic National Committee selected Tom Perez over Keith Ellison (aka Hakim Muhammad) to chair the DNC, Wikileaks unloaded links to the John Podesta emails that expose Perez's sabotaging of Bernie Sanders during the 2016 primaries. According to Wikileaks, the "DNC has chosen Tom Perez (backed by Obama) over Keith Ellison (Sanders)." They then linked to documents in their archives regarding Perez. Wikileaks then tweeted, "New #DNCChair Tom Perez: 18 Podesta Emails show him working for Hillary Clinton against Bernie Sanders." Sanders supporters took to Twitter to voice their opinion on Perez being chair of the DNC....

    Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Nation of Islam) Racist whites teamed up with illegal aliens on the Democratic National Committee to reject a heavily favored black Muslim candidate for DNC chairman. Congressman Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), a friend of America-hating jihadists everywhere, had been expected to win the hotly contested race to become the in-your-face of the Democratic Party.

    Tom Perezs victory as DNC Chair is a slick move. He was the lapdog for hardcore Muslim supremacists when he was Obamas Assistant Attorney General, a gutless tool doing the bidding of the terror-tied groups. As Assistant Attorney General, Perez had a shameful record of pro-sharia initiatives and craven accommodation to Islamic supremacists at the DoJ. Perez sought to impose sharia blasphemy laws under the guise of hate speech laws. He refused to answer questions whether DoJ would advance a proposal to criminalize speech against any religion. He refused to commit to the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on the Constitution...

    Didnt news reports have leading Democrats telling their party toix-nay on eachment-impay? Last week, they called it a trap to make the party look extreme and reactionary. Last night, one front-runner to run the DNC apparently walked into that trap willingly. In the CNN debate between the DNC chair candidates, Keith Ellison said Democrats should already be working on impeachment:(video at link) BASH: Thank you. Congressman Ellison, three of your colleagues in the House, Maxine Waters, Jamie Raskin, and Joaquin Castro, have people publicly raised the specter of impeaching President Trump. Do you stand with them or with House Leader...

    Dems, please, put him in charge According to The Hill, Keith Ellison is currently the frontrunner in the race to take over as the chairman of the DNC. That may have changed a bit since they presented their findings, but heres what they said yesterday: Rep. Keith Ellison (Minn.) has the edge over former Labor secretary Tom Perez in The Hills new survey of DNC members. But while both men claim they are close to securing commitments from the majority of the 447 voting members, neither candidate is assured victory.

    Will the Democratic Party complete its descent into madness this weekend? As the Democratic National Committee meets in Atlanta to select its next chairman, the frontrunner for the position, extremist Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., represents the leftist radical fringes complete takeover of the party. In a survey of DNC members, Ellison leads his nearest rival with nearly twice the support. Ellison, the first Muslim American elected to Congress, has built a coalition of support across the DNC spectrum. He is the favorite of the Bernie Sanders wing of the party while simultaneously garnering the endorsements of progressive icons such as...

    Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, a top candidate to take over as chair of the Democratic National Committee, called Wednesday for an impeachment investigation of President Donald Trump. I think that Donald Trump has already done a number of things which legitimately raise the question of impeachment, Ellison said during a debate on CNN on Wednesday with his fellow DNC chair hopefuls. The left-wing Ellison, who is one of the top contenders for DNC chair, argued that Trump was in violation of the emoluments clause, a constitutional clause which prohibits presidents from receiving payment from foreign governments. Some Trump opponents have...

    The Democrats always pick their best and brightest to head the DNC. DNC chair candidate, Keith Ellison appeared on the O’Reilly Factor a few years ago and when Bill O’Reilly brought up Nazi Germany, Keith Ellison said they bombed Pearl Harbor. You just can’t make this stuff up! Bill O’Reilly: “I will point to history…the same mindset was taken when dealing with Nazi Germany. We’re not going to go in an aggressive action, we don’t believe they’re gong to do this, we don’t believe they’re gonna do that…and they absolutely did everything! So I think you gotta look at history.”...

    Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) on Friday picked up the backing of the head of the nations largest teachers union in his bid to lead the Democratic National Committee. In a statement announcing her personal endorsement, National Education Association president Lily Eskelsen Garca said she knows Ellison will be a unifying force for Democrats. Keiths emphasis and well-documented commitment to party building and grassroots organizing in every community is exactly what we need as the nation finds itself at a crossroad under the divisive Trump administration, she said. Eskelsen Garcas endorsement comes just hours after the Service Employees International Union called...

    Ive been writing about Keith Ellison since he was endorsed by the DFL Fifth District convention to succeed Rep. Martin Sabo in the spring of 2006. I wrote some 20 Power Line posts under the heading Who is Keith Ellison? I summarized my findings in the Weekly Standard article Louis Farrakhans first congressman and in the companion Power Line post Keith Ellison for dummies. When Ellison published his 2014, memoir cum manifesto My Country, Tis of Thee, I wrote about it in the Weekly Standard article The Ellison elision and the Star Tribune column Keith Ellison remembers to forget.

    According to a former classmate of Keith Ellison, the Democratic Minnesota Congressman and DNC Chair Candidate used offensive rhetoric about Jews while a student at the University of Minnesota.That anecdote is buried in an otherwise complimentary profile of the congressman from Mother Jones. Ellison recently came under renewed scrutiny for his past defense of anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan in the student paper, and for inviting Stokely Carmichael to give a speech on campus in which he accused “Zionists” of collaborating with the Nazis.One of the campus critics of Ellison (who then went by ‘Keith Hakim’) was an...

    The co-founders of Ben & Jerrys ice cream on Thursday endorsed Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairmanship. Ellison is an authentic champion of working families and hes ready to bring that energy and mindset to the Democratic Party, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield said in a joint U.S. News op-ed published Thursday. While the ice cream company has released flavors named after public figures, including comedian Stephen Colbert and musicians Dave Matthews and Jerry Garcia, the pair don't announce plans for an Ellison-themed flavor in their op-ed. Instead, they pitch the Minnesota politician as part...

Its time for people to get active, to get involved, to vote and to organize, said Ellison, who was in Houston to campaign for chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Trump must be stopped, and people power is what we have at our disposal to make him stop. We need mass rallies. We need them all over the country. We need them...

On Monday, President Donald Trump signed a memorandum removing the United States from TPP. You didnt like TPP, are you pleased with how swiftly Mr. Trump moved on it? CNNs Alisyn Camerota asked Ellison on Tuesdays New Day program. I'm pleased that the American people over the course of years raised up the problems with TPP and I'm glad that their voices got heard, even if it was...
