    The Zionist Organization of America, in a release this week, noted Ellisonís role in drafting a congressional letter following the 2009 Gaza War urging the Obama administration to press Israel to loosen its blockade on Gaza. (The letter also noted that security needs led to the blockade). The ZOA also noted that Ellison was among a handful of congressmen who voted against additional funding for Israelís Iron Dome anti-missile system during the 2014 Gaza War. (Ellison had previously backed Iron Dome, but said it made more sense during the 2014 war to press for a cease-fire.) ďIf he becomes DNC...

    "The appeal of Keith Ellison is that he is a young, very aggressive hard leftist Ė actually my friend Trevor Loudon in his film The Enemies Within has pointed out, a guy with actual communist ties; thatís how hard Left.Ē ďBut heís also a Muslim who has been hanging with, embracing, supporting, and otherwise carrying on with the Muslim Brotherhood in America,Ē Gaffney continues. ďAnd that would apparently be something that qualifies him to be a leader of the Democratic Party these days. You see a lot of it in the last campaign. I canít make the case that thatís...

    Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota is making headlines after announcing his bid for chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). Ellison already has strong support from Sens. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Harry Reid. Some have said Ellisonís own identity as an African-American and a Muslim would be a strong statement for the Democratic Party under the upcoming Donald Trump administration. He previously advocated for, and is reportedly a ďpassionate supporterĒ of H.R. 40: Commission to Study Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act, co-sponsored by Michigan Rep. John Coyners Jr.

We must build a bench not just for federal candidates, but for state and local candidates across the nation." Ellison cited a "broad...

    In an attempt to stave off a civil war in the ranks, Democratic leaders are scrambling to unite behind a candidate for the party's chairmanship Ė and have landed for now on a Louis Farrakhan-linked congressman who once called for Dick Cheneyís impeachment and compared George W. Bush to Hitler. ... Yet it isnít the only controversy for Ellison. In 2007, Ellison made a comparison between Bush and 9/11 to Hitler and the 1933 Reichstag fire.
