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.

16 states hit 9th Circuit to sue President Trump, as expected

16 states hit 9th Circuit to sue President Trump as expected

It was one of the most replayed parts of President Trump’s announcement regarding his national emergency declaration last Friday – a sing-song moment as the President predicted the declaration would be made, Democrats would sue, they’d go through the 9th circuit, and their decision will hopefully be overturned by the Supreme Court. So far, he’s been absolutely correct as 16 states have filed against the declaration.

New York, California, 14 other states sue Trump in Ninth Circuit over emergency declaration

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/new-york-california-sue-trump-in-ninth-circuit-over-emergency-declarationThe attorneys general of California, New York, and 14 other states on Monday filed a lawsuit in the Ninth Circuit against the White House’s recent national emergency declaration over border security, claiming President Trump has “veered the country toward a constitutional crisis of his own making.”

President Trump sarcastically had predicted the lawsuit last week. He’s slammed the Ninth Circuit multiple times as “disgraceful” and politically biased.

My Take

This is their right, and while it may annoy those who support building the border wall, it would be a mistake to condemn these states for trying to stop it. This is part of the way our nation is intended to operate. If one or more states feel the need to challenge the authority of Washington DC, they should be able to make their case before the courts. If the courts make decisions based on the Constitution, then the end result will be the accurate and righteous one.

That’s how this was all intended.

I’m not suggesting the 9th Circuit is going to treat this fairly, nor am I confident the Supreme Court will make its decision solely on the Constitution, but until things are changed, this is what we’ve got. Attempts to subvert any component of this system from the President’s right to declare the emergency to the states’ rights to challenge it to the courts’ responsibility to make a ruling about it all would be to denounce the foundation upon which this nation was built.

There was a way this could have been avoided. Had the President and the GOP decided to have the debate over the wall while they had power over the House, Senate, and White House, they would have been in better position to get the wall going by now. Unfortunately, they an improper political calculation to hold off on the wall debate until after the midterm elections, and now it’s costing the American citizens. It costs us money to sit here through the shutdown and the legal battle over the national emergency declaration. It’s costing us time; the wall should be much further along by now. It may end up costing us the wall altogether if they aren’t able to make a strong case before the Supreme Court.

We are in the midst of a crisis at the border, one that has been going on for decades. Let’s not exacerbate the crisis by adding a Constitutional crisis on top. This needs to play all the way out.

Leftist media pushes back on Green New Deal criticism

Leftist media pushes back on Green New Deal criticism

It’s been an up-and-down couple of weeks for proponents of the Green New Deal. Before details were released, it was already being heralded as the greatest thing since President Obama’s election. Then, the details came out and even many on the left were taken aback by the ambitious and incoherent provisions of the deal as detailed in a FAQ section on Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s government web page.

But that was just a draft. They took it down. At least that was the story.

Unfortunately for proponents, they were caught a little flat-footed as questions started pouring in about, well, all of it. Even if we dismiss the less-draconian concepts such as eliminating air travel or the less-sane ideas like taking care of those who are unwilling to work, the left is still stuck with a proposal that the most frugal estimates put at costing around $7 trillion while other’s consider the decade-long cost to be in the HUNDREDS of trillions of dollars.

This is, of course, ludicrous. There’s not enough money in the entire world to pay for the proposal if its cost is somewhere between the lowest and highest estimates, but that hasn’t stopped leftist media from regrouping. Now that the dust has settled a little bit, they’re doing everything they can to recommit to this concept. It’s not that they suddenly believe in this fairy tale. It’s that they don’t want this to be the issue Republicans attack in the 2020 elections.

One article in particular that I read from CNN (yes, sometimes I need to see what the other side is thinking) really struck me for its honesty about the situation. Though I stopped reading it in paragraph two when it referred to “non-partisan” PolitiFact, I went back to it just now to digest the awfulness fully (see the sacrifices I make for our readers!).

To be clear, much of what this article says is correct. It asserts the GOP will take the tenets of the Green New Deal and use it to scare voters into thinking it’s even worse than Obamacare. From 2010 through 2016, Republicans attacked Obamacare incessantly and it worked, giving them the House in 2010, the Senate in 2014, and the White House in 2016. Unfortunately, they stopped there and didn’t actually go after Obamacare with the same fervor they held in their campaign rhetoric and now the Democrats have turned the issue on its head.

But here’s the thing. Obamacare may have been bad, but the Green New Deal truly is worse. It’s not even close. Even if we take at face value the notion that the Green New Deal is simply an ambitious framework around which real legislation can be forged, we have to look at the core issues entailed in order to see the true damage it can do. This is a socialist document. It’s a call for the same levels of insanity that drive the Medicare-for-All movement. Within its frivolous attempts to change perceptions of air travel, cows, and job creation is a deep-rooted desire to convert Americans to needing more government.

NOQ Report needs your support.

The Green New Deal represents the far-left’s desire to make more American dependent on government. At the same time, it aims to increase the levels of dependency for those who are already in need of assistance. It wants Democrats to latch their wagons on the notion that if we become a militantly environmentalist nation, that will serve the dual purpose of giving us fulfillment while saving the planet.

I believe most leftist journalists understand this, but they see in the ridiculous framework a path through which Republicans can be defeated wholesale in 2020 as long as the left can control the narrative surrounding the Green New Deal. They fear another Obamacare counterinsurgency that would wipe out the anti-Trump gains they made in 2018, so they’ve adopted a stance that the Green New Deal isn’t as bad as Fox News says it is. Meanwhile, they’re doing everything they can to say, “look over here and not at the Green New Deal.”

The politics behind what the Green New Deal represents is more in play than the tenets of the proposal itself, at least in the eyes of leftist media. It’s not that they want to promote the concept. They simply don’t want the concept to derail their party in the next election.

Louis Farrakhan refers to Ilhan Omar as ‘sweetheart,’ prompting zero outrage

Louis Farrakhan refers to Ilhan Omar as sweetheart prompting zero outrage

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan referred to Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as “Sweetheart” as he addressed her during a speaking engagement on Sunday. He apparently caught his faux pas and immediately justified the remark, but at that point the moniker which many consider to be sexist or misogynistic had already been noted.

Nevertheless, it didn’t cause the stir one might expect. As a far-left progressive, Omar is known for being a feminist icon on Capitol Hill even though she hasn’t been in office for a full two months yet. As our EIC noted, the lack of a rebuke was because of the source, not because she now feels it’s okay to refer to her as “sweetheart.”

The statement came as Farrakhan was telling Omar she shouldn’t be sorry for the statements she made last week about Israel, AIPAC, and Jewish influence in Washington DC, particularly over Republicans.

In a world where consistency was still considered a virtue, followers of Omar would be wondering why she’s not expressing outrage over the belittling reference from a powerful man. But the world isn’t consistent and Farrakhan always gets a pass.
