Who is Keith Ellison?

Featured image Our friend Roger Kimball has tuned in to the trial of Derek Chauvin in a major way. Roger has accordingly noted the role played by Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison in the case, as he did in his current Spectator column “Justice for Derek Chauvin.” Last night Roger forwarded a message he had received in response to his column quoting one of Ellison’s two contributions to the University of Minnesota »

Keith Ellison for dummies

Featured image I wrote the Weekly Standard article “Louis Farrakhan’s first congressman” and wrote the companion Power Line post “Keith Ellison for dummies” in October 2006, when Ellison was on the verge of election to Congress representing Minnesota’s Fifth District. I was provoked to write these pieces by the poor job Minneapolis’s Star Tribune had done documenting Ellison’s troubling past. Indeed, I had been contacted by several prominent Democrats who had dealt »

Twin Cities Situation Deteriorating as Keith Ellison Fans the Flames

Featured image Twin Cities rioters and leftists are spreading a conspiracy theory: they claim that an agent provocateur, an undercover police officer, was the first to vandalize property in Minneapolis, and therefore the police are “really” responsible for the arson, looting, and so on now taking place. This is absurd, of course. But now Attorney General Keith Ellison, the state’s chief law enforcement officer, has signed on with the far-left kooks: This »

Keith Ellison’s “Minnesota Values”

Featured image Keith Ellison has released his campaign’s first internet video. It claims that Ellison embodies “Minnesota values,” and studiously avoids any reference to the many controversies swirling around him: his long-time advocacy for cop-killers, his multiple documented instances of domestic violence, his participation in the Nation of Islam and his anti-Semitism, along with more minor issues like his failure to pay taxes. Here is the video: Ellison says we need him »

Keith Ellison: No sale yet

Featured image A KSTP/Survey USA Poll gives us the first glimpse of the state of play in cop killer loving cum lawman wannabe Keith Ellison’s bid for Minnesota Attorney General. Only Republican candidate Keith Wardlow stands in his way. The poll results show a dead heat at 41 percent each. Democrats have held a lock on the office roughly since the memory of man runneth not to the contrary. While Republicans have »

Covering — or covering for — Keith Ellison

Featured image Star Tribune reporter Jessie Van Berkel purports to cover the words and deeds that should haunt Keith Ellison as he runs for the office of Minnesota Attorney General in “Keith Ellison faces and navigates controversy, again.” Ellison is unfit to serve in any high office, but he is particularly unfit to serve as the chief law enforcement officer of the state. Van Berkel’s article touches on the matters I document »

Will Keith Ellison Drag Down Minnesota Democrats?

Featured image Minnesota will be the eye of the hurricane in November, with two Senate races, at least four competitive House races, and the governorship at stake. The Democrats nominated their strongest candidate for governor, 1st District Congressman Tim Walz. But if Republicans have their way, Walz and all other Democrats on the ballot will be tarred by association with Walz’s de facto running mate, Keith Ellison. The national press is beginning »

Keith Ellison and Al Franken, compare and contrast [UPDATED]

Featured image Paul Kane of the Washington Post compares the reaction by leading Democrats to evidence of Keith Ellison’s domestic abuse with the reaction to evidence of Al Franken’s sexual touchings and harassment. He finds a disparity. In Franken’s case, Sen. Kristin Gillibrand forcefully called for an investigation by the Senate Ethics Committee within hours of the first accusation against the then-Senator. So did Sen. Kamala Harris. Both made it clear they »

Another Keith Ellison Sexual Assault Charge

Featured image A guy named Jeff Kolb, who is a city councilman in a Minneapolis suburb, has raised a new sexual assault allegation against Congressman, Deputy DNC Chairman and candidate for Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. I have no idea how reliable Kolb is, but his tweets don’t seem to depend much on his own credibility. This is the first one, which includes a record of a 911 call in 2005. I »

Democrat Primary Opponents Raise Domestic Abuse Issue Re Keith Ellison [Updated]

Featured image Twitchy has the story: a 25-year-old man did a lengthy Facebook post in which he claimed that Congressman, Deputy DNC Chairman and Minnesota Attorney General candidate Keith Ellison abused his mother, a woman named Karen Monahan: In the middle of 2017, I was using my moms computer trying to download something and I clicked on a file, I found over 100 text and twitters messages and video almost 2 min »

Can Keith Ellison Win?

Featured image More than anyone else, Scott has exposed the sordid past and current extremism of Congressman Keith Ellison. When Scott began that effort, I had no idea that Ellison would go on to become a leading figure in the Democratic Party, where he now serves as Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee. In a surprise move, Ellison has announced that he is leaving Congress to run for Attorney General of »

Keith Ellison supports cop killers

Featured image Bernie Sanders came to town yesterday to support the candidacy of Minnesota Fifth District Rep. Keith Ellison for state attorney general. Sanders made appearances with Ellison at First Avenue in Minneapolis and at Denfeld High School in Duluth. I cannot imagine a political office for which Ellison is less fitted than the head of any organization devoted to law enforcement. Ellison’s candidacy is a disgrace, as is Sanders’s support of »

Beyond Keith Ellison

Featured image In his Wall Street Journal column last month, Jeryl Bier reported that Ellison and Farrakhan had a reunion of sorts in September 2013 with a follow-up meeting in Farrakhan’s hotel room when Farrakhan visited Washington in 2015. Ellison’s relationship with Farrakhan goes way back, but it turns out that Farrakhan has several fans in the Democrats’ Congressional Black Caucus as well. This long suppressed 2005 photograph of Farrakhan & Friends »

The deep meaning of Keith Ellison

Featured image Edward-Isaac Dovere reported in Politico yesterday that Minnesota Fifth District Rep. Keith Ellison is exploring a run for Minnesota Attorney General. Dovere confirmed his story with four acquaintances of Ellison with whom Ellison has discussed the possibility. Dovere adds that Ellison “has indicated to several people close to him in recent days that he’s less likely to run,” although Ellison still “finds the idea enticing.” In addition to serving in »

Understanding Keith Ellison

Featured image Keith Ellison is Minnesota’s Fifth District Congressman and the Democratic Party’s deputy chairman. We’ve followed his rise since he won the DFL nomination to run for the Fifth District seat in 2006 in “Louis Farrakhan’s first congressman” (October 9, 2006), in the companion Power Line post “Keith Ellison for dummies,” and in “The Ellison elision” (February 3, 2014). Most recently, I revisited this history in the context of Ellison’s national »

Keith Ellison Endorses Antifa [Updated]

Featured image If you sometimes get the feeling that the Democratic Party has gone mad, you’re right. It has. Exhibit A is Keith Ellison, deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, who yesterday endorsed the fascist Antifa movement, which closely resembles the Brownshirts of the 1930s. Ellison tweeted this photo of himself with Antifa’s manifesto: Ellison tweeted: At @MoonPalaceBooks and I just found the book that strike [sic] fear in the heart »
