Is Louis Farrakhan running the Democrat party through Keith Ellison?

Published

on

Following the 2016 election, Democrats went right to work on re-creating the party. While you would think they would take this opportunity to move the party away from the extreme left-wing ideology that had cost them the election, Democrats instead moved the party even further left.

In their search for new leadership, Democrats selected Obama’s former Secretary of Labor, Tom Perez, to be the new Chair of the Democratic National Committee, while choosing Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) as Deputy Chair.

Ellison’s rise to this powerful position was viewed by politically correct Democrats—but I repeat myself—as validation of Ellison’s achievement of becoming the first Muslim ever elected to Congress.

But could there be another reason for Ellison’s success?

Before being elected to represent Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional District, Ellison was affiliated with the anti-Semitic and anti-American Nation of Islam. It was with this organization that Ellison developed close associations with Louis Farrakhan and Khalid Abdul Muhammad—both of whom have long-established histories of promoting violence and murder against whites and Jews.

While Ellison made efforts to distance himself from Farrakhan during his campaign for Congress, his behavior since becoming Deputy Chair of the DNC would not only indicate that he’s not only still involved with the Nation of Islam, but that Farrakhan might still be behind Ellison’s success.

In a recent speech loaded with anti-Semitic and racist rhetoric, Farrakhan defended Ellison’s perceived betrayal to the Nation of Islam. Telling those in attendance that he considered Ellison a “beautiful brother,” Farrakhan chastised anyone who attempted to attack the Minnesota congressman.

“Let me tell you something. When you want something in this world, the Jew holds the door. You will turn on your brother for some advantage in their world.

“I don’t want you attacking him, because you ain’t so strong yourself. If you want something from the white man, and you have to denounce me, how will you act when your trial comes?”

Talk about a Messiah complex.

Farrakhan’s defense of Ellison are right in line with the teachings of the Koran where it states that Muslims can lie to unbelievers as a matter of religious policy. In other words, Ellison’s “lie” about severing ties with Farrakhan is permitted if it can be used to advance the cause—a cause Ellison is still actively involved with.

Ellison’s pro-Nation of Islam persona has been in the news a lot lately. In January he endorsed a book that promotes the ideology of ANTIFA—a group recognized by the DHS and FBI as a domestic terrorist group. The book calls for physical violence against ANTIFA’s opponents as a “vital sliver of anti-fascist activity.”

Over the past weekend, Ellison was the keynote speaker for an annual gala at the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic relations (CAIR), a group with ties to radical Islamic terror. He and Farrakhan also recently attended a private dinner hosted by the Iranian government.

By the way . . . Ellison has been an advocate for the repeal of the Second Amendment, a frightening little tidbit of information considering the current anti-gun hysteria coming from the White House.

When you consider the capitulation of Trump and the GOP on priorities considered important to Democrats, the ideology of Ellison and Farrakhan could be advanced if Congress flips in 2018. One more reason that true conservatism is the only hope for America.

    When BHO was elected the second time I thought the Dems were on the cusp of inexcusable extremism. Only the post-Obama unraveling of his tenure will prove that – as I am sure it will.

    This step is one step too far. I will not support any party or candidate that infuses hate on any other race or religion. If I had done the opposite to the Muslims that he did with the Jews, there would be all kinds of reaction.

    I won’t take the double standard. These two guys need to be removed from politics.

    If true and it gets out, the dumbacrats will never see the light if day, as far as controlling anything in DC.

      Chaz – You might be right, but the danger is that with the GOP and Trump caving to the Democrats like they are, Dems might have more power than you think. And if that power is influenced by the likes of Farrakhan, the consequences could be devastating.

    Barack H. Obama was also a personal friend and confidant of Farrakhan before he was elected to the Senate. Obama’s flirtation with Islam, while he occupied the Oval Office, was not just a fluke policy.

TIL the famous bar AOC worked at shut down over rising costs, minimum wage increase

TIL the famous bar AOC worked at shut down over rising costs minimum wage increase

Today I learned something that surprised me, not because of the event itself but because so few people have talked about it. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is known for being a leader of the socialist movement in Washington DC after rising from the humble status of bartender to the Congresswoman of the 14th district in New York. Her policies include a push for a “living wage” of $15 per hour. I’ve always thought the wording was odd considering Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and others have been calling for a rise in “minimum wage.” Today, I found out why she’s shying away from that phrase.

When New York City raised their minimum wage $15, many businesses were hit hard, especially in the hospitality industry. Restaurants and bars started cutting hours and often even closing their doors over the increase. One of those hit hard by the massive bump was The Coffee Shop. Owner Charles Milite blamed the closure on high costs, with the rise in minimum wage as the last straw.

“The rents are very high and now the minimum wage is going up and we have a huge number of employees,” he said.

The Coffee Shop is the bar where AOC once worked.

Keep in mind, this wasn’t some random bar. The Coffee Shop in Union Square was considered a high-end establishment, buzzing all the time with “A-list” patrons. It was featured many times in the HBO show Sex and the City and had built a reputation as an “it” spot for Manhattan residents and tourists alike. In other words, this wasn’t a hole in the wall hanging on by a string. It was a vibrant, successful business for almost three decades before New York City’s untenable leftist policies, including a $15 minimum wage, became more than the bar could bear.

On the surface, many voters may see the very basic math of “oh, Democrats want to pay me more” and assume there’s no repercussions for such actions. This is why Democrats prey on those people who currently make lower wages. They feel if they can promise them something that sounds good even if they know with 100% certainty based on empirical evidence that it will actually hurt them, these new socialists are willing to make that trade. They figure they can blame the conservatives later for why the place they were working at before cut their hours, removed their jobs, or shut down because of raising the minimum wage.

As usual, socialists rely on ignorance and emotion as the driving forces behind their plans. They’re not stupid. They know their ideas won’t work. But they’re willing to push them on people anyway in hopes that ignorance will keep them in power.

Snopes downgrades truth about Beto’s arrests to ‘mostly true’ because a meme got his band’s name wrong

Snopes downgrades truth about Betos arrests to mostly true because a meme got his bands name wrong

Fact checkers are all the rage in the age of fake news. Unfortunately, all of the major fact checkers are left leaning at best, downright progressive at worst. That’s why I make it part of my daily routine to check the checkers to see what they spun today. This latest installment is minor in the whole scheme of things, but it highlights the intense need to protect Democrats whenever possible.

Snopes took on the task of fact checking the following statement:

Beto O’Rourke was in a band called the El Paso Pussycats and was arrested at least twice in the 1990s.

This is true. Beto was arrested twice, which makes him an ideal candidate for the party of lawlessness and disorder. But Snopes, in their certified fact checking wisdom, decided to pick the statement about the arrests that included the name of his band. The statement they chose had the wrong name for the band, using their album name instead. This was enough for them to downgrade the statement from “True” to “Mostly True.”

Not a big deal, right? Actually, it’s bigger than one might think. When people search for Beto and look only for things that are true about him, they will not be shown information about his arrests. The site could have picked literally any other claim about the arrests to fact-check, but had to dig deep to find an internet meme from his failed Senatorial bid last year in order to find one with a statement that included something incorrect in it.

Beto ORourke Arrest

You’ll notice they made sure to mention that both charges were dismissed. The circumstances behind the dismissals seemed to do nothing to negate the crimes he actually committed.

This is just another example of the “fact-checker” running cover for a Democrat they like. The meat of the fact, Beto’s arrests, won’t be found on this site as “True” because they were selective in how they wanted to frame this narrative.

Who is the current moneyline favorite for the Democratic nomination?

Who is the current moneyline favorite for the Democratic nomination

An interesting metric to analyze politics is viewing the moneyline. In fact, online bookies are more accurate at predicting major elections than the partisan hack, Nate Silver and his FiveThirtyEight, who incorrectly guessed every tight Senate race except for the shady Arizona race. But the odd makers spend their time doing their analysis because there is money to be lost if they do poorly. So let’s take a look at one key metric and explore the reasoning as to why.

The lowest tier are the candidates so far out, that they don’t have a moneyline, even when speculated names do. This tier includes Jay Inslee, Pete Buttigieg, and Wayne Messam. Safe to assume that this metric gives these people less of a chance than candidates who have confirmed they aren’t running.

The second lowest tier are the longshots. These candidates range from John Hickenlooper through Corey Booker. These candidates are either not big faces in the Democratic spotlight or are at a serious disadvantage because they have been crowded out of their base. The same could be said about Elizabeth Warren, but she has a devoted core and the potential to make gains when the debates are in full swing.

The next tier are the vultures. Elizabeth Warren, Tulsi Gabbard, and Amy Klobachar need death to survive, metaphorically speaking. The vultures have their sights on a clear target: Joe Biden. If they can feast on his corpse, they’ll survive. But perhaps its Bernie’s corpse they should be gazing upon instead. In truth, I think Yang is more dark horse than vulture, but both appear dark on the outside.

Alas, we have our favorites. Beto O’Rourke, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Kamala Harris, our current frontrunner by this metric. These candidates have the most money, intersectionality points in the case of Harris, ability to win superdelegates as it currently stands, and name recognition. It’s obvious why, at a glance one would rank these names at the top. Under the surface, they also have the most stable base within the Democrat party. Don’t rely too much on polling which will fluctuate like the wind. Kamala Harris could win black vote in the south while the three other white male favorites vie for the northern swathes of the country. And the odds are almost a year out. They too will fluctuate, but I believe the moneyline accurately gives us a picture of our current frontrunners.
