DNC Vice Chair Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) is no stranger to controversy. He is an uber-liberal that has found himself in political hot water more than once. But one thing that the Democrats are very good at is closing ranks. Even if they have to sacrifice one of their own to do it. After all, Ellison is now running for Attorney General in Minnesota.
While Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is being smeared and splashed all over the media, there is another far more credible #MeToo moment playing out in front of us and it is in the Democratic Party. Keith Ellison is being accused of assault and abuse and the Dems aren’t listening to or believing the woman leveling the charges even though she has records to back up her claims.
There is no foggy memory or bleary facts in this scenario. Karen Monahan has no trouble at all being very specific over the alleged abuse from Keith Ellison. Monahan, an environmental activist, and Ellison’s former girlfriend has claimed Ellison emotionally abused her and, at least once, physically abused her.
The Democrats are not standing by her at all either. They actually are turning on this woman. It’s breathtaking hypocrisy at play and it is being almost entirely ignored by the media.
From The Hill:
“I’ve been smeared, threatened, isolated from my own party,” Monahan tweeted. “I provided medical records from 2017, stating on two different Dr. Visits, I told them about the abuse and who did it. My therapist released records stating I have been dealing [with] and healing from the abuse.”
“Four people, including my supervisor at the time, stated that I came to them after and shared the exact story I shared publicly, I shared multiple texts between me and Keith, where I discuss the abuse with him and much more,” she wrote. “As I said before, I knew I wouldn’t be believed.”
“She wrote that coming forward was a “huge piece of my healing.” Monahan in the tweets tagged the Democratic National Committee and the Minnesota Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party.”
This is a woman who told her physician about the abuse in 2012. She even produced the doctor’s report as evidence and brought it forth as proof just to show consistency in her prior accounts of the situation. Crickets from the media.
From The Daily Caller:
“She states that she was in a very stressful environment for years, emotional and physical abuse by a partner with whom she is now separated,” reads the November 2017 report, a picture of which Monahan posted on Twitter.
“She did not have any physical injuries that required an examination in the past. She identifies the individual she was involved with as Congressman Ellison, and she is worried about retribution if she identifies him publicly,” the report states.
“Monahan’s son Austin Aslim Monahan first aired the allegations against Ellison on Aug. 11 and claimed to have seen evidence of Ellison’s abuse.
“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 long that showed Keith Ellison dragging my mama off the bed by her feet, screaming and calling her a ‘f*cking b*tch’ and telling her to get the f*ck out of his house,” he wrote in a viral Facebook post.
“Monahan’s son added:
“Sitting all this time, watching what our mom went through and not being able to say or do anything was hard as hell. None of you know the hell our family has gone through. I don’t think half of you would even care. We watched her so-called political friends stand by say or do nothing. People had an idea what happened and never reached out to my mom. The same people who are posting about social justice are ready to smear my mom, protect a person who abused her and broke the law.”
“Monahan has yet to produce the alleged video, which Ellison has said doesn’t exist.”
UPDATE: This is a record of a 911 call from May 16, 2005. The caller reported she was assaulted by Keith Ellison. pic.twitter.com/Z080dzS702

Unlike the woman accusing Kavanaugh, this sounds very credible and specific. This also isn’t the first time that Ellison has been accused of abuse. Back in 2005, Amy Alexader, who was another girlfriend of Ellison’s, alleged abuse by Ellison. There was also a 911 report backing that up.
The DNC, of course, said in August that they were “reviewing” the allegations. In other words, they did nothing and buried it, hoping it would all blow over. The Democratic Party has continued to stand by Ellison in his position and in his run for Attorney General. They simply cannot afford to lose him on their roster. They are that desperate. Ellison continues to deny all charges.
Monahan has said that she is willing to cooperate with any investigation. “I told the investigator I would be happy to talk with @keithellison [with] them in the room. They asked Keith if he would be willing [and] he declined any meeting [with] me,” Monahan said. I’m not surprised by that in the least and I’m sure Ellison has the DNC attorney on speed-dial these days just in case.

Instead of this unfounded witch hunt against Kavanaugh, I think that Ellison’s clear record of alleged abuse should be front and center. Fight fire with fire. If Kavanaugh can be baselessly disparaged by the left at the eleventh hour of his confirmation, then fire both barrels at Ellison who certainly has the appearance of guilt here. What’s good for the political goose is good for the political gander.

Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Apprehend Over 164,000 Illegals In Less Than 7 Months
This story originally appeared on WeBuildTheWall.news & was edited and republished with permission:
The Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol has apprehended more than 164,000 illegal immigrants in less than seven months. That’s simply staggering. They were taken into custody between Brownsville and Del Rio during the first seven months of fiscal 2019. Approximately 162,000 illegal immigrants were taken into custody during all of 2018 so this breaks that record.
Apprehended migrants are separated into three categories: Unaccompanied children, family units and single adults. Each category showed steep increases, according to Customs and Border Protection figures. They are simply being swarmed and overwhelmed on the southern border. That’s a military tactic by the way and it’s working.
From the Caller Times:
“From Oct. 1 through March 31, the number of unaccompanied children in the sector was up 56 percent compared with the same period the year before. Family unit apprehensions were up nearly 230 percent. And the apprehension of single adults was up 31 percent.
“The southwestern United States is divided up among nine Customs and Border Protection sectors. The Rio Grande Sector is by far the busiest with an average of about 1,100 migrants per day taken into custody.
“According to the US Department of Health and Human Services’ budget documents, providing care for unaccompanied children taken into custody by immigration authorities has been costing about $1.5 billion a year for the past few years. But the number could top $2 billion for the new budget year that begins in October, the agency said.
“The apprehension figures do not include migrants who show up at U.S. ports of entry to seek asylum.”
U.S. Customs and Border Protection released the following statement:
“Release Date: April 23, 2019
“EDINBURG, Texas – The U.S. Border Patrol Rio Grande Valley Sector continues to experience unprecedented numbers in illegal alien apprehensions.
“Less than seven months into the fiscal year, the Rio Grande Valley Sector of the U.S. Border Patrol Sector has apprehended more than 164,000 people to date, surpassing the total number of apprehensions made in fiscal year 2018. The sector continues to work with its federal, state, local and non-governmental partners in addressing the influx of Central and South American migrants crossing into South Texas.
“On average, Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley arrest more than 1100 people per day.”
The increase is the result of an ongoing surge of migrants, most of them from Central America, who are crossing the border to seek asylum. The 2019 total for the Rio Grande Valley includes 15,310 unaccompanied minors apprehended from October through March — compared to 23,760 during the entire 2018 fiscal year — and 79,000 people who were traveling in families during the same time frame, which has already surpassed the 63,280 family members apprehended in 2018. The Border Patrol has reported similar increases along the entire southwest border.
President Trump has tried repeatedly to get funding for a wall and security on our southern border and the Democrats have obstructed him at every step. We are being invaded and this is an attack using swarming tactics. The U.S. is under siege… just build the wall already and stop all immigration for a period of time while this is sorted out. It is a brutal act of war and the violence will skyrockets as the invasion steadily increases. #WeBuildTheWall

Under Bernie’s Plan, 183K Murderers, 164K Rapists Would Be Allowed To Vote From Prison
Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) statement that those in prison should be allowed to vote is far more sweeping than most know. His proposal would allow some 183,000 convicted murderers and 164,000 convicted rapists to vote from their jail cells. In a CNN town hall this week, Sanders endorsed allowing all convicted U.S. citizens to vote from prison – including the Boston Marathon Bomber. It’s not a new stance for him… he’s always supported the felon vote.
“So, I believe people who commit crimes, they pay the price and they get out of jail, they certainly should have the right to vote,” Sanders said. “But, I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, but that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.”
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) doesn’t want to be left out of this insanity either. She openly hinted that she would be open to such a plan, saying “I think we should have that conversation” when asked about allowing convicted criminals to vote from their cells. Of course, she is also saying she will use an executive order for gun control if she is elected president.
“The latest data compiled by the Prison Policy Initiative concludes that there are more than 1.6 million convicted criminals in local, state, and federal prisons across the country. This includes about 183,000 convicted murderers and 164,000 convicted rapists.
“Not all 1.6 million convicted criminals in local, state, and federal custody are American citizens, though. State and local prisons have yet to collect data deciphering between the citizen versus noncitizen populations of their prison populations.
“Federal data concludes that noncitizens make up about 25 percent of the federal prison population.
“Should this be true of local and state prisons, as well, this would mean that about 1.2 million convicted criminals in prison today could be eligible to vote from their cells under Sanders’ plan — including anywhere between 137,000 and 183,000 convicted murderers and potentially between 123,000 to 164,000 convicted rapists.
“Similarly, the Sanders plan would potentially allow anywhere between 14,250 and 19,000 citizens convicted of manslaughter to vote from their cells, as well as up to 154,000 convicted assailants.
“Ahead of the 2020 presidential election, as Breitbart News has reported, organizations funded by billionaire George Soros are working to restore the voting rights of about 1.4 million felons in Florida after the state approved the measure last year.”
Even Piers Morgan, who I sometimes agree with, but who is a rabid gun control advocate, thinks that Sanders is a lunatic for suggesting this. “I couldn’t really believe what I was hearing,” said Morgan, a former CNN host and DailyMail.com editor-at-large, calling the idea “utter lunacy.” He expressed disbelief that any Democrat could support such a proposal and believe they can defeat President Trump in 2020. He’s absolutely right. It’s a gift to Trump.
Carlson said Democrats don’t trust convicted felons “to go deer hunting” but are okay with them choosing the next president. “What they’re really saying is ‘we don’t care at all about anything. We’re nihilists, all we want is power and if we see a reservoir of potential voters, we’re gonna tap that reservoir,'” he said.
Bingo… that’s exactly what I’ve been saying for some time about the Democrats. It will backfire and Trump will get a second term because of it.
