    Photo of Democratic senator groping news anchor Leeann Tweeden goes viral Progressives aligned with the Bernie Sanders camp called for replacing disgraced Sen. Al Franken with a fellow Minnesota Democrat, Rep. Keith Ellison, as support grew Friday for the senator’s resignation. Justice Democrats, a group of former Sanders campaign staffers and others prominent leftists, launched a petition Thursday asking Mr. Franken to resign following the release of a photo showing him groping Leeann Tweeden as she slept on a 2006 USO tour. “Franken must go. We do not tolerate those who abuse their power,” said Justice Democrats PAC executive director...

    Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore on Tuesday stood by his decades-old statement that Muslims should not be allowed to serve in Congress, Mediaite reported. "Read my article and you'll find out what I believe," he told MSNBC reporter Garrett Haake while on the Senate floor. "It's clarified very clearly in my article." Moore, a former Alabama chief justice, has made a number of controversial statements in the past. In 2006, he urged Congress to bar Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, from being sworn in because he would be taking his oath with his hand on a...
  • Muslim Ellison should not sit in Congress

    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.”...

    The Alabama Republican candidate for U.S. Senate who just knocked off an incumbent urged Congress not to seat U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison in 2006 because he is Muslim. In a phone interview Wednesday, Ellison called Roy Moore "completely unfit," a liar and theocrat who puts the Bible above the U.S. Constitution. Ellison, a Democrat from the Minneapolis-centered Fifth District, was the first Muslim elected to Congress. At the time, Moore publicly argued in writing that Ellison should not be seated because of his beliefs. Ellison took the oath of office in January 2007 using a Qur'an once owned by Thomas...

    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...

    Islamic Jew-hatred – it’s in the Quran. So why wouldn’t the people Ellison hires be Jew-haters, too? Rep. Keith Ellison’s (D., Minn.) press secretary sparked a Twitter spat Thursday after describing a prominent Jewish reporter as looking like an “anti-Semitic caricature.” Isaiah Breen, Ellison’s press secretary, took to Twitter Thursday afternoon to jokingly claim he was fired from his position for publicly mocking two Jewish reporters, Bloomberg View’s Eli Lake and Daily Beast contributor Jamie Kirchick. Breen, from his personal Twitter account, wrote, “To be clear, keith fired me with prejudice after i said jamie kirchik and eli lake remind...

    David Duke wants the world to know that he supports Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison’s attempt to become the next chairman of the Democratic National Committee. The former leader of the Ku Klux Klan likely complicated Mr. Ellison’s professional goals Monday by backing his efforts while alluding to claims by critics that he is anti-Semitic. “Keith Ellison, Sally Boynton Brown or Jehmu Greene would all be excellent choices — I really like Keith though… I mean, at least he knows,” Mr. Duke tweeted. The “at least he knows” remark appears to be a reference to Mr. Ellison’s past with the Nation...

    A top Democratic National Committee leader called the Republican Party "the party of racism" at a conference for liberal activists Friday, pointing to President Donald Trump's positions on immigrants and refugees. "You hear Republicans say, 'We're the party of Lincoln.' He wouldn't recognize these people," said Rep. Keith Ellison, a congressman from Minnesota and Democratic National Committee deputy chairman. "The fact is that the Republican Party today is the party of racism. Now I'm not saying every Republican is a racist, but I'm saying their party does hold that up. ... It is the Republican Party in 2017 that says,...

    There are few surprises here. Just the inevitable descent of the Democrats into the fever swamps of hatred and extremism. According to the anti-Israel group behind the Congressional letter, “The effort to gather signatories to the letter was supported by a coalition of human rights organizations including U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, CODEPINK, Jewish Voice for Peace, and American Muslims for Palestine.” American Muslims for Palestine has been linked to Hamas. Jewish Voice for Peace, which is neither Jewish nor peaceful, is a BDS group. This is what the Dems are mainstreaming. 32 Democrats in Congress signed on to a...

    But that’s how a fundraising pitch from Democratic National Committee deputy director Keith Ellison is characterizing this moment of “resistance” to the agenda of President Trump. “Last week, on a special episode of Democrats Live with civil rights icons Congressman John Lewis and Heather Booth, we were given our charge: the resistance is our ‘Spartacus moment,'” reads the email from Ellison.

    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...

    The DNC’s 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....

    Tom Perez’s victory as DNC Chair is a slick move. He was the lapdog for hardcore Muslim supremacists when he was Obama’s 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...

    Didn’t news reports have leading Democrats telling their party to ix-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.

    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 here’s what they said yesterday: Rep. Keith Ellison (Minn.) has the edge over former Labor secretary Tom Perez in The Hill’s 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 fringe’s 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...
