Known by the company you keep: Demorat Keith Ellison dined with Louis Farrakhan, Iranian president

From Fox News: Democratic National Committee Deputy Chair Keith Ellison attended a private dinner hosted by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, along with the head of the black nationalist group Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan.

First reported by The Wall Street Journal, Ellison, the Democratic congressman from Minnesota, also visited with Farrakhan in 2015.

Ellison attended the 2013 dinner with two other members of the Congressional Black Caucus—Reps. Andre Carson, D-Ind., and Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y. Rouhani invited Muslim leaders from around the U.S. to dinner after addressing the United Nations General Assembly.

The Nation of Islam website confirmed the attendance of “the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan” to the dinner on Sept. 23, 2013 across the street from the U.N. headquarters in New York City. FinalCall.com, the Nation of Islam’s publication, confirmed Ellison’s attendance with an article, and photos of Ellison and Farrakhan at the tables.

“After the guests were hosted at a dinner, the Iranian president entered and engaged in warm discussion with guests, including Democratic congressmen Greg Meeks of New York, Keith Ellison of Minnesota, who is a Muslim,” Final Call wrote on Oct. 2, 2013.

Iran has been listed by the U.S. government as a “state sponsor of terrorism” since 1984.

But the dinner was not the first time Ellison was associated with Farrakhan. Ellison attended Farrakhan’s Million Man March in 1995, and even publicly defended Farrakhan – who has repeatedly made anti-semitic remarks, and has called Jews “satanic” – according to a report by the Daily Caller.

Ellison has attempted to distance himself from Farrakhan, especially during his run for DNC chair in 2016, writing an op-ed for The Washington Post, painting his relationship with Farrakhan as limited to the 1995 march.

But Farrakhan slammed Ellison, posting a video to Facebook saying that Ellison and Carson visited him in 2015.

Neither the DNC nor Ellison’s office responded to Fox News’ request for comment.

Former White House press secretary, now Fox News contributor Ari Fleischer slammed the media for not covering the latest Ellison-Farrakhan development. “Once again, no feeding frenzy by the media. Don’t let anyone tell you the press is neutral. They’re not. Their silence is deafening. Ellison Attended Private Dinner With Iranian President and Louis Farrakhan in 2013 via @freebeacon,” Fleischer tweeted Monday.

The Congressional Black Caucus also has been tied to Farrakhan in recent months – especially with the surfacing of a photo taken in 2005, with then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill. smiling alongside him. A Final Call photographer, according to the Daily Caller, said he kept the photo hidden for 13 years at the request of the CBC in order to protect Obama’s political career.

Just last week, Democratic Rep. Danny Davis of Illinois defended Farrakhan as an “outstanding human being.”

Farrakhan’s past extreme comments include praise for Adolf Hitler as a “very great man,” blaming Jews for the 9/11 attacks, and saying white people “deserve to die.”

“I don’t regard Louis Farrakhan as an aberration or anything, I regard him as an outstanding human being who commands a following of individuals who are learned and articulate and he plays a big role in the lives of thousands and thousands and thousands and thousands of people,” Davis told the Daily Caller last week, and noted that “it wouldn’t be anything out of the ordinary” for him to meet with Farrakhan.

TDS: Americans root for Kim Jong-un

rosie odonnell apologizes to kim jong un

Traitor Rosie O’Donnell in her apology to dictator Kim Jong-un

When President Trump was elected, I predicted that the TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) would be a thousand times worse than Bush Derangement Syndrome. And my prediction has come true.

Amidst Fat Boy puffing to nuke the US, liberals have shown their allegiance – to a brutal killer and dictator who threatens the United States.

Here are a few examples:

Rep. Keith Ellison: “Kim Jong-un is acting more responsible than Donald Trump.”

Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein said this on MSNBC: “North Korea has been demonized by US, forced to attain Nukes. Russian interference based on circumstantial evidence.”

Fat womyn and angry libtard Rosie O’Donnell promised to leave the US if Trump was elected. Just like a bunch of other celebrities who promised to do the same, she is still living in the good ‘ol USA. She also promoted a “Trump-killing” game.

Rosie has now offered an apology to Kim Jong-un for Donald Trump. See her apology here.

I suggest all of the libtards who are siding with North Korea take a little visit over there to offer your sympathies in person. I DARE YOU.

Liberalism is truly a mental disorder.

Bernie Sanders, Pramila Jayapal introduce bill to make college free for many

bernie sanders is santa claus

From Seattle Times: Washington Rep. Pramila Jayapal has teamed up with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders to introduce a bill that would make four-year public college free for families making less than $125,000, and make community college free for all.

The $600 billion cost would be funded by a tax on Wall Street speculation.

The College for All Act would also reduce student-loan debt by cutting all student- loan interest rates for new borrowers in half; enable existing borrowers to refinance loans based on the interest rates available to new borrowers; and prevent the federal government from profiting off the student-loan program.

Its sponsors say the bill would reduce student debt by allowing existing federal aid to cover other college costs, including books, housing and transportation. It would require states and tribes participating in the program to cover the full cost of college for their poorest students. It would also increase the size of work-study programs.

The bill’s co-sponsors, all Democrats, include Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. It’s been endorsed by the American Federation of Teachers, the National Education Association and the American Association of University Professors, among others.

Why are 8 Democrats sponsoring a bill to eliminate the death penalty for treason?

Nearly a year ago, on January 2, 2012, eight Democrats in the House introduced a curious piece of legislation — H.R. 3741: Federal Death Penalty Abolition Act of 2013, which seeks to abolish the death penalty under federal law. But the bill has only just been discovered by the media, notably The Hill on Dec. 16, 2013.

HR 3741 specifically prevents anyone from being sentenced to death or put to death for all federal offenses that presently would bring the death penalty. Those offenses include:

1. Homicide-related offenses:

  • Murder related to the smuggling of aliens (illegal immigrants)
  • Destruction of aircraft, motor vehicles, or related facilities, resulting in death.
  • Murder committed during a drug-related drive-by shooting
  • Murder committed at an airport serving international civil aviation
  • Murder committed using chemical weapons
  • Civil rights offenses relating in death
  • Murder of a member of Congress, an important executive official, or a Supreme Court justice
  • Death resulting from offenses involving transportation of explosives, destruction of government property, or destruction of property related to foreign or interstate commerce
  • Murder committed by use of a firearm or armor piercing ammunition during commission of a crime of violence or a drug trafficking crime
  • Genocide
  • First degree murder
  • Murder by a federal prisoner
  • Murder of a state or local law enforcement official or other person aiding in a federal investigation; murder of a state correctional officer
  • Murder during a kidnapping
  • Murder during a hostage-taking
  • Murder with the intent of preventing testimony by a witness, victim, or informant
  • Mailing of injurious articles with intent to kill or resulting in death
  • Assassination or kidnapping resulting in the death of the president or vice-president
  • Murder for hire
  • Murder involved in a racketeering offense
  • Willful wreckage of a train resulting in death
  • Bank robbery-related murder or kidnapping
  • Murder related to a carjacking
  • Murder related to aggravated child sexual abuse
  • Murder related to sexual exploitation of children
  • Murder committed during an offense against maritime navigation
  •  Murder committed during an offense against a maritime fixed platform
  • Murder using devices or dangerous substances in waters of the United States
  • Murder involving the transportation of explosive, biological, chemical, or radioactive or nuclear materials
  • Murder involving the destruction of vessel or maritime facility
  • Murder of a United States national in another country
  • Murder by the use of a weapon of mass destruction
  • Murder by act of terrorism transcending national boundaries
  • Murder involving torture
  • Murder involving a war crime
  • Murder related to a continuing criminal enterprise or related murder of a federal, state, or local law enforcement officer
  • Death resulting from aircraft hijacking

2. Non-homicide related offenses:

  • Espionage
  • Treason

3. Title 10: Offenses include

  • conspiracy
  • desertion
  • assaulting or willfully disobeying superior commissioned officer
  • mutiny or sedition
  • misbehavior before the enemy
  • subordinate compelling surrender
  • improper use of countersign
  • forcing a safeguard
  • aiding the enemy
  • spies
  • espionage
  • improper hazarding of vessel
  • misbehavior of sentinel
  • murder
  • death or injury of an unborn child
  • crimes triable by military commission

HR 3741 also states: “Anyone who was already sentenced to death for a federal crime prior to the bill taking effect would have that sentence reduced to a lifetime prison sentence without any possibility of parole.”

Nothing happens in politics without a reason. Certainly, members of the United States Congress, who are more preoccupied with fundraising for their reelection than with legislating, don’t propose bills without a reason.

We must therefore ask ourselves the reason for HR 3741. Is it motivated by Altruism, the highest and most selfless form of charity?

The answer, I submit, can be found in two clues:

1. The bill stretches credulity by the sheer scope of the crimes for the elimination of death penalty as punishment, including even for such egregious acts as genocide, mutiny, sedition, murder by use of a weapon of mass destruction (not even  nuclear bomb or poison gas?), not to mention assassination of the U.S. president or vice-president, and of members of Congress. If genocide doesn’t warrant the death penalty (think Hitler), what would? Why not just abolish the death penalty altogether?

2. The bill’s sponsors:

They are eight — a sponsor and 7 co-sponsors:

  • Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.), the sponsor of HR 3741.
  • Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.)
  • Keith Ellison (D-Minn.): the first Muslim to be elected to the U.S. Congress.
  • Barbara Lee (D-Calif.)
  • Hank Johnson (D-Ga.): the bright bulb who thinks the island of Guam would tip over because of more U.S. troops.
  • John Lewis (D-Ga.)
  • Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.)
  • José Serrano (D-N.Y.)

Edwards, Cummings, Ellisonl to r: Donna Edwards, Elijah Cummings, Keith Ellison

Lee, Johnson, Lewisl to r: Barbara Lee, Hank Johnson, John Lewis

Not only are HR 3741’s eight sponsors all Democrats, 6 of the 8 are members of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Jan SchakowskyJan Schakowsky & José Serrano

Jan Schakowsky, 69, is the daughter of Jewish immigrants from, respectively, Lithuania and Russia. Not only is Schakowsky a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, she is the most “Progressive” leftwing socialist communist member of the current US Congress, with ratings of between 90 and 100 from “liberal and progressive” interest groups — which means she is a pro-abort. She even has the gall to call abortion a mere “health procedure” and wants more “federal funding,” that is, to have taxpayers pay even more for murder.

On March 11, 2004, Schakowsky’s husband, lobbyist Robert Creamer, the executive director of the Illinois Public Action Fund (IPAF), was indicted in federal court on 16 counts of bank fraud involving three alleged check-kiting schemes in the mid-1990s, leading several banks to experience shortfalls of at least $2.3 million. In August 2005, Creamer pleaded guilty to one count of failure to collect withholding tax, and bank fraud for writing checks with insufficient funds. On April 5, 2006, Creamer was sentenced to five months in prison and 11 months of house arrest. All of the money was repaid. Schakowsky was not accused of any wrongdoing despite her serving on IPAF’s board during the time the crimes were committed, and despite her co-signing with her husband their IRS filings.

José Serrano, 70, born in Puerto Rico, is the avowed socialist who repeatedly has introduced House resolutions to repeal the 22nd Amendment that limits U.S. presidents to two consecutive terms. He is widely regarded as one of the most “Progressive” members of Congress.

In other words, the bill’s eight sponsors, being all “Progressive” Democrats are not individuals notable for their sweetness and light and altruistic love of humanity. If they were, they wouldn’t be “Progressives” who support the death penalty for the most innocent and defenseless of human beings — the unborn.

The logical conclusion, therefore, is this:

HR 3741’s real objective is to eliminate the death penalty for TREASON because Democrats think Barack Hussein Obama may be arrested and tried for treason.

Like that fascinating impeachment email that the Democratic National Committee recently sent to its supporters, HR 3741 is motivated by the Demonrats’ real fear that their idol, President Lucifer, is in serious trouble.

Muslim Democrat Congressman goes postal on Hannity

Democrat Keith Ellison, 49, represents Minnesota’s 5th congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives. He is the first Muslim, a Sunni, to be elected to the U.S. Congress.

This is how a Muslim Democrat Congressman behaves on national TV: a childish tirade of ranting, bullying, and namecalling.

Here’s the account by Joe Kovacs for WND, Feb. 27, 2013:

In an epic interview for the ages, a Democratic congressman unloaded on Fox News anchor Sean Hannity Tuesday night with a non-stop verbal assault on the popular host.

Hannity opened up a segment on President Obama’s tactics regarding budget issues by saying, “Our alarmist in chief, President Panic himself, he did not feel the need to be at the White House today, nor did he think it was important enough to visit Capitol Hill and try to hammer out a bipartisan solution to the mess that he himself has put the country in.”

He showed a montage of recent Obama remarks with a soundtrack of ominous music behind it.

Hannity then introduced U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim ever elected to Congress, who took little time to insult the program’s host.

“Quite frankly, you are the worst excuse for a journalist I’ve ever seen,” Ellison told Hannity at the outset. “What you just displayed was not journalism. It was yellow journalism. It wasn’t anything close to try to tell the American people what’s really going on. It’s just shocking to me.”

“Yellow journalism?” responded Hannity. “To play Obama in his own words is yellow journalism?”

Ellison tried to label Hannity as a champion for Republican causes, saying, “You are a shill for the Republican Party and you alibi them constantly. You alibi them 100 percent of the time.”

“I am not a registered Republican. I’m a registered conservative,” Hannity explained.

At one point that became somewhat comedic, Ellison told Hannity, “You said I could rant, and I am.”

“I’ve given you plenty of time to rant,” said Hannity, as Ellison took a brief moment to let Hannity speak. “Oh, you’re so nice to give me a word on my own program.”

At which point Ellison said, “OK, I changed my mind,” talking over the Fox host once again.

“Why are you so angry?” asked Hannity.

“Why are YOU so angry?” Ellison shouted back.

“You’re a broken record,” said Hannity.

“YOU’RE a broken record,” responded Ellison.

Hannity also asked the Democrat whether America’s massive debt was “immoral.”

“You are immoral!” Ellison fired back.

“I’m immoral?” Hannity said. “I didn’t do anything that’s immoral.”

“You say things that aren’t true!” Ellison said.

“Congressman, you are a total waste of time,” Hannity concluded. “I’m moving on because our audience deserves better. Thank you for being with us. I tried to give you a fair shot.”

“No you didn’t,” Ellison said.

From Wikipedia:

As a law student in 1989 and 1990, Ellison wrote several columns under the name “Keith E. Hakim” in the student newspaper, the Minnesota Daily. Washington Post Staff Writer Alan Cooperman said that Ellison’s articles “defended Farrakhan against accusations of anti-semitism,” and that Ellison “called affirmative action a ‘sneaky’ form of compensation for slavery, suggesting instead that white Americans pay reparations to blacks.”

During Ellison’s 2006 campaign, however, Ellison denounced Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam in a letter to the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota & the Dakotas, asserting he had never been a member, and that his connections with the Nation of Islam were limited to an 18-month period during which he helped organize the Minnesota contingent at the 1995 Million Man March.

In 2006, the Minnesota State Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board reprimanded Ellison for unreported campaign contributions, discrepancies in cash balances, and misclassified disbursements during his campaigns for the Minnesota House of Representatives. These transgressions occurred in the years 2002–2004. In 2005, the board opened an investigation, and Ellison was subpoenaed and fined. Ellison was repeatedly fined for late filings, was sued twice by the Attorney General of Minnesota, and was warned about absent or incomplete disclosures.

Democrat voter fraud

There are reports of early voters voting for Mitt Romney but the electronic voting machine instead lights up with the name of Barack Obama.

The Republican National Committee sent a letter expressing concerns about voting machines to the secretaries of state of 6 states — Nevada, Ohio, North Carolina, Colorado, Kansas and Missouri. But the RNC did not provide documented proof of its allegation aside from media anecdotes, such as a man in Nevada’s Washoe County who reported a problem with a voting machine in which he tried to vote for Obama but the machine kept registering a vote for Romney. The machine was then recalibrated by election officials.

WND reports that another incident took place in Ohio. Marion County resident Joan Stevens touched the screen to vote for Mitt Romney but the machine lit up the name of Barack Obama. Stevens tried a second time and again the machine lit up Obama when she selected Romney. She tried a third time and finally Romney’s name lit up. Stevens reported the malfunction to board of elections personnel and was told the voting machine had been “acting up all day.” She then took her complaint to Sophia Rogers, the top county election official. Rogers claims they had the voting machine checked out and found nothing wrong but had it recalibrated anyway. Rogers also suggested that perhaps Stevens was not hitting the touch screen properly or with not enough force, but Stevens says she knows how to vote.

Anyone skeptical about the accuracy of the electronic voting machines can opt to use a paper ballot instead and mail it in.

There are also eye-witness reports of van loads of people of questionable U.S. citizenship, who were being bussed in to vote in early voting centers in Ohio. Some of them were Somali-garbed non-English speakers.

In this video, three Ohio residents say they’ve witnessed those “irregularities”:

Mike Neutzling says he’s seen mass loads of people being “herded in by union operatives in union transportation,” including Somali-garbed women who don’t speak English and had to be helped to vote. Neutzling wonders if they are U.S. citizens. He says when he early voted in Columbus, OH, no one asked for his ID. In fact, “if you give your ID to them, they won’t even take it.” Neutzling (pic below) also said these van loads of people being “herded in” were given “slate cards” or Democrat sample ballots. He said that, in fact, there are union operatives standing in the parking lot of the early voting center handing out “slate cards.”

Another eye witness is Alicia Healy, wearing a blue “Coal = Jobs” cap (see pic below), who says that when she got out of her car at the Morse Road early voting center, she was approached by a Democrat asking if she wanted a Democrat ballot. Healy said, “Of course, I said no.” She also saw van loads of Somalis voting.

Bill MacCaughey, a Republican volunteer at the Morse Road early voting center, also says he’s seen car- and van-loads of people voting, including Somali immigrants in characteristic Somalian clothing who couldn’t speak English.

There are simple solutions for these voting “irregularities”:

1. Proof of U.S. citizenship when we register to vote.

2. An ID card to proof we are who we claim we are, when we check in to vote.

3. Replace electronic voting machines with paper ballots.

But the POS’s Attorney General Eric Holder and the Demonrat Party reject these simple and obvious measures. Muslim black Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN) is literally demonizing voter ID by calling it the devil!

Why?

Here’s the Occam’s Razor answer:

Because they want non-citizens to vote and because they want and encourage voter fraud!
