Heading into President Trump’s Minneapolis rally, DFL Chairman Ken Martin predictably issued a statement criticizing President Trump’s divisiveness. After the event, DFL Chair Martin issued another statement that served as an I-told-you-so bookend to his previous statement. In the after-rally statement, DFL Chair Martin criticized President Trump for attacking the Somali refugees living in Minneapolis. Imagine my surprise when I read this Washington Post article that criticizes President Trump for attacking Minneapolis’s Somali population.

It didn’t happen. That’s just how it was written. Allyson Chiu wrote “The president soon widened his attack to target Somali refugees in Minnesota, a group that includes Omar, a naturalized U.S. citizen who was born in the East African country. He promised rally attendees, who booed loudly at the mention of the state’s Somali residents, that he would ‘give local communities a greater say in refugee policy and put in place enhanced vetting and responsible immigration controls. As you know, for many years, leaders in Washington brought large numbers of refugees to your state from Somalia without considering the impact on schools and communities and taxpayers.’ Trump said as some in the crowd jeered, adding, ‘You should be able to decide what is best for your own cities and for your own neighborhoods, and that’s what you have the right to do right now, and believe me, no other president would be doing that.'”

Apparently, the DFL thinks that parents having a say in what’s best for their cities and neighborhoods is hateful. Similarly, the Washington Post thinks that people that don’t want their property taxes increasing each year are hateful. I live in St. Cloud, which is Ground Zero in this fight. My property taxes have gone up since the first Somali arrivals. Meanwhile, AP classes went from 9 programs at Tech to 2 in a 4-year period. The money for the AP programs was shifted to English immersion classes. As this happened, people left St. Cloud for the Sartell and Sauk Rapids-Rice school districts so their kids can get a better education.

I’d love hearing DFL Chair Martin explain why it’s hateful for parents to want the best education for their children. I’d love hearing the Washington Post explain why it’s wrong for parents to want their property taxes stable and low.

Then again, the point isn’t that these things are wrong. These spinmeisters’ goal is to spread the message that President Trump hates minorities. Ken Martin understands that the DFL will get crucified if the subject is the economy. Martin knows that President Trump’s economic policies are working for most people. This Marist Poll provides President Trump good news:

Nearly two in three Americans (65%), including 62% of independents, say the economy is actually working well for them personally. Republicans (93%) overwhelmingly have this opinion while Democrats divide. 46% of Democrats think the economy is benefitting them, and 50% do not.

If Democrats don’t convince voters that President Trump’s policies are hurting them, then Democrats will get their butts kicked in November, 2020.

People understand that it’s ok for communities to determine when a flood of refugees is too many to support. This isn’t hateful. It’s common sense. This is what hatred looks like:

It’s impossible to say that the anarchists/rioters aren’t haters. They certainly are. It isn’t just anarchists that displayed their hate:

On a Livestream of the violent protest by Star Tribune reporter Andy Mannix, a sitting Democrat State Representative Aisha Gomez (DFL-Minneapolis) was spotted participating. Due to the violence by the masked leftwing protesters Minneapolis Police was occasionally forced to deploy chemical irritants to subdue and disperse people committing assaults. Rep. Aisha Gomez bragged on twitter that she was able to use her position as a state rep to instruct the Mayor of Minneapolis Jacob Frey to have the police stand down.

Here’s that tweet:


That’s proof that the DFL actively participated in getting people fired up for violence. That’s also proof that the DFL actively ensured lawlessness. The MSM, including the Washington Post, insists that President Trump is a hater but says nothing about the DFL’s ginning up of hatred amongst rioters.

President Trump’s marathon political rally ran the gamut of emotions tonight. The word from the MSM was that it was a vitriolic speech. The MSM rightly noted that President Trump reserved his harshest words for Ilhan Omar, Joe and Hunter Biden.

I can’t dispute that this 102-minute speech was filled with red meat for the partisans, of which I’m one. Of Omar, President Trump asked “How the hell did that happen?” I’m sure lots of people wonder what they did that they deserve that. Of Democrat leadership, President Trump called them “Chuck and Nancy”, sarcastically adding that they’re “2 beauties.” Isn’t that a fact.

At one point, President Trump brought Officer Robert Kroll up onto the stage, to the enthusiastic approval of the audience. Later, Lt. Kroll appeared on Shannon Bream’s Fox News @ Night program:

Let’s be clear about this. The Trump campaign is going all-in with Minnesota. They came close with a shoestring budget. This time, Campaign Manager Brad Parscale announced that Republicans will spend tons of money to flip Minnesota:

The Trump/RNC team already have 20 paid staff in Minnesota. Parscale anticipates a full-time paid staff of almost 100 by the time the parties’ national conventions happen. Based on what I saw at last night’s Trump rally, Minnesota Republicans have never been this excited and motivated. Minnesota Republicans want to flip Minnesota this time. I think that’s definitely possible. President Trump also hit the hot-button issue of the Somali Refugee Resettlement issue:

“For many years, leaders in Washington brought large numbers of refugees to your state from Somalia without considering the impact on schools and communities and taxpayers. I promised you that as president I would give local communities a greater say in refugee policy and put in place enhanced vetting and responsible immigration control. And I’ve done that,” Trump said, touting a reduction of refugee settlement by 85% since taking office and his “travel ban” on certain Muslim-majority countries.

This isn’t just about keeping a campaign promise, which is a significant accomplishment. It’s about imposing accountability on the State Department and organizations that use the program as a cash cow. It also refutes the things that St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis told Councilman Jeff Johnson. This proves that Councilman Johnson is right.

Predictably, the haters, aka anarchists, aka #BlackLivesMatter and Antifa, were out causing trouble:

Despite their antics, the rally was a huge success. All of the estimates I heard last night put the combined crowd at almost 50,000 people. The campaign announced that they got almost 100,000 requests for tickets to last night’s rally.

DFL Chairman Ken Martin put out this dishonest statement after the rally:

“Tonight Donald Trump’s rally was all about Donald Trump , just like his Presidency. No talk about policy, no talk about his vision for America, no talk about what he would do to improve the lives of Americans. Just a bunch of attacks, deflection, and stroking the egos of the blindly-loyal Republican elected officials and candidates who have clearly put their oath to Trump ahead of the oath they took to protect and defend the constitution of the United States of America. To paraphrase the late great Molly Ivins: Trump’s speech tonight was much better in the original German.

Despite Chairman Martin’s dishonesty, President Trump talked about the progress being made building the wall, the improvements already made in the refugee resettlement program, bringing troops home from the Middle East, cutting regulations that have produced the energy boom and providing veterans health care choice. Other than those substantive improvements, Chairman Martin is right.

DFL Party Chair Ken Martin chose to follow the lead of Nancy Pelosi during the Almanac Roundtable Friday night. Let’s just say that Martin is as convincing as Pelosi when it comes to talking about how sad a time this is for our nation. In other words, neither was convincing. When Cathy Wurzer asked who would be the political winner from impeachment, Martin even recited a cheesy line that “nobody wins with impeachment.”

I thought Chair Carnahan started off ok when she said that Democrats started off the week by going after President Trump again. It’s indisputable that Democrats have spent far more time criticizing President Trump than they’ve spent trying to keep their campaign promises. It’s worth noting that Cathy Wurzer was particularly unfair as the moderator, too. Wurzer asked “Why is it appropriate for a president to call foreign leaders and suggest investigations of his political rivals?”

Personally, the obvious answer is that the political rival in question, Vice President Biden, is a corrupt SOB, as is his son. The best way to stay out of trouble is to not be as corrupt as Joe or Hunter Biden. If the Biden family wasn’t that corrupt, President Trump wouldn’t have to call them out for corruption. It doesn’t help when the elder Biden smarted off like this:

That’s the jackass Ken Martin is defending with a straight face. Then, with another straight face, Martin said “It’s a really sad day for America. The fact is that this is a solemn and grave situation we find ourselves in and no one should take glee in the fact that a sitting president of the United States is being impeached. The reality, though, is that this President, while in office, has tried to extort a foreign government to influence our elections. Not only is that wrong. It’s a brazen abuse of power which threatens our national security and it also violates a president’s oath he took to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. This is a serious matter. It’s not a political matter. There are huge questions that need to be answered and that’s what this impeachment is about. Look, we’re at a moment in our country’s history where our trust in government, our trust in politicians, our trust in institutions is at an all-time low and if we’re going to restore integrity and trust with the American people, we can’t have this type of behavior in the highest office in the land. We need to have accountability. There’s a reason why our Constitution is set up the way it is, with checks and balances and that’s what this is about. Not only to hold the president accountable to his actions but to make sure that we are doing our job of protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States of America.”

First, it’s time to call Martin out as a bald-faced liar, perhaps on the level of Rep. Schiff. Saying that “this President, while in office, has tried to extort a foreign government to influence our elections” is an outright lie. There’s no proof that supports that accusation. Period. Chairman Martin, which foreign government did President Trump extort? Chairman Martin, what thing of value did President Trump receive from a foreign government? Chairman Martin, what did President Trump use to allegedly gain this thing of value?

Next, insisting that this unmentioned thing that President Trump extorted from a foreign leader will “influence our elections” is laughable at best. If Martin thinks that Biden represents a serious challenge to President Trump, my first question would be ‘what drugs are you using?’ The next question would be ‘how expensive are they?’ Seriously, anyone that thinks that any of those nobodies running for the Democrats’ presidential nomination is a serious challenger is kidding themselves.

Third, the hint that this isn’t serious is when Martin says that “there are huge questions that need to be answered and that’s what this impeachment is about.” When Congress voted to open the impeachment on Nixon, there were multiple constitutional crises to deal with and multiple additional crimes to deal with.” I’m betting that Martin couldn’t honestly tell you if a crime had been committed. I’m certain that he’d admit that there isn’t a constitutional crisis.

Democrats continuously insist that “nobody is above the law, not even the president.” Here’s a radical thought for Democrats: nobody is above the law, not even former vice presidents and their kids. Hunter Biden shouldn’t get a free pass just because his washed-up dad is running for president. President Trump had an obligation to finish the Biden family’s corruption. If someone has a problem with that, that’s their problem.

Later in the interview, Chairwoman Carnahan rattled off a number of President Trump’s accomplishments. Chairman Martin couldn’t resist taking a cheapshot at President Trump, saying “President Trump made a lot of promises to Minnesotans and to Americans when he ran in 2016. He said he would fix health care. He said he would make it more affordable and accessible. He’s done nothing.

What a coincidence. Pelosi’s pilgrims promised to fix health care, too. Instead of fixing Obamacare, they spent tons of time investigating President Trump. Even while Robert Mueller was investigating President Trump, Democrats didn’t lift a finger to fix Obamacare. This election, rather than looking backward, Democrats will have to defend Medicare-for-All because Elizabeth Warren will likely be the Democrats’ nominee. Good luck defending that proposition, Kenny. You’ll need it.

Towards the end of the interview, Martin was stupid enough to say that Democrats believed in the rule of law. That’s from an idiot whose party thinks that citizens should pay for illegal aliens’ health care. That’s coming from someone whose political party thinks that illegal immigration should be decriminalized. Does that sound like a political party whose highest priority is the rule of law? Give me a break.

Later, Martin insisted that Democrats put a high priority on people of character. That’s difficult to accept considering that their point person on impeachment is Adam Schiff. Schiff lied about never meeting the CIA agent/snitch/Democrat activist. Schiff is the liar who pretended to read from the transcript while he made the entire thing up. That certainly sounds like a man of sterling character.

Finally, Martin asked “The other day, on the lawn of the White House, the President implored Ukraine and China to do an investigation of one of the President’s political rivals?” The correct answer to that question is ‘you’d better believe it.’ Hillary blamed the FBI for costing her the presidency. That’s BS. She cost herself the White House because she was utterly corrupt. This time, Vice President Biden is utterly corrupt. If he’d led an exemplary life, President Trump wouldn’t have a reason to have those countries investigate Biden.

The solution, Mr. Martin, is to stop having corrupt people who’ve been in DC for a combined 75 years run for president. If eliminating corruption is your top priority, that should be simple, Chairman Martin.

Saying that Ilhan Omar has led an interesting lifestyle is understatement. This article will make people question her explanations of her multiple previous marriages. First, let’s hear the basics of this article:

Beth Jordan Mynett said her political consultant husband, Tim Mynett, told her in April that he was in a relationship with the Minnesota Democrat, according to a divorce filing obtained by the New York Post. The filing was submitted Tuesday in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.

“The parties physically separated on or about April 7, 2019, when Defendant told Plaintiff that he was romantically involved with and in love with another woman, Ilhan Omar,” the divorce filing says.

This gives an entirely new definition to the old cliché that “politics makes for strange bedfellows.” I’m also reminded of President Reagan’s old saying that “Politics is the world’s second-oldest profession and, at times, it resembles the oldest profession.” Then there’s this:

Beth Mynett is seeking primary custody of their son, citing her husband’s “extensive travel” with the congresswoman. Omar’s campaign has paid Tim Mynett’s consulting firm E. Street Group more than $200,000 since 2018. “Defendant’s more recent travel and long work hours now appear to be more related to his affair with Rep. Omar than with his actual work commitments,” the divorce filing alleges.

The question now is out there that some of these trips were fundraising trips or whether they were fundraising trips co-mingled with romantic interludes. I’m not a campaign finance attorney but I’m smart enough to know that a legitimate investigator should investigate this.

If Omar has used some of her campaign funds to pay for romantic jaunts, then she deserves to feel threatened by law enforcement. I don’t know the answer to that question but I’m certain that an investigation is worthwhile. Couple that information with this information and you start getting the picture that Rep. Omar thinks that the laws don’t apply to her:

State Rep. Drazkowski has been persistent in digging up information on Rep. Omar’s sordid lifestyle. Meanwhile, the Minneapolis Star Tribune has barely lifted a finger to investigate Omar’s ‘lifestyle choices’. I’d say that this is one of those jobs that Americans just won’t do but that isn’t accurate since Rep. Drazkowski is doing this work and he’s an American.

Perhaps we should say that this is a job that the Media Wing of the Democratic Party won’t do. Further, it’s worth noting that people of integrity are totally willing to do this work. Just because Democrats don’t believe in enforcing the law doesn’t mean Republicans have to agree with that philosophy.

Apparently, the Democrats’ gene pool needs a ton of chlorine to clean itself up. The courts in Hennepin and Ramsey counties are mostly Democrats. I know that the county attorneys are Democrats. That’s why I’m not holding my breath waiting for this potential investigation. Apparently, Democrats always protect other Democrats. (If you don’t believe that, check out how Ken Martin and the DFL protected Keith Ellison after he allegedly attacked Karen Monahan.)

It’s long past time for people to realize that the DFL is exceptionally corrupt. They’ve been that way for years. It’s just that the Strib has kept that fact hidden until now.

Anyone that thinks that Ken Martin, the DFL State Party Chairman, is controlling his faculties is kidding themselves. Either that or they’re part of the Twin Cities media. Matt Dean retweeted Martin’s diatribe. After reading Martin’s diatribe, it’s difficult to think that he isn’t a lunatic. Read Martin’s statement, then tell me he doesn’t sound like he’s leading the DFL off a cliff:


Yikes! Reading his diatribe, I count too many lies to count. For instance, Martin insists that President Trump is “destroying this country.” Seriously? Martin apparently hates prosperity because this is the best economy of my lifetime.

Further, Martin ranted this:

The occupant of the White House, Donald Trump, has through his words and actions, given rise to hate speech and violence throughout this country- he is a White nationalist, racist, homophobic, zenophobe [sic], who is destroying our country.

That’s a lengthy list of accusations. Notice that Martin, or any other DFL politician for that matter, hasn’t offered even a tiny morsel of proof to substantiate this wild-eyed diatribe.

That isn’t to say there’s nothing noteworthy in Martin’s diatribe. Martin hasn’t figured this out but it’s what’s actually wrong:

If these shootings were perpetrated by black or brown men, you could bet would have acted by now. However, it seems that our leaders are ok not acting because white people killing people from marginalized communities.

Martin just accused the entire Republican Party of being racist. In his attempt to score political points for the DFL, he threw 40+ percent of Minnesotans under the bus. What a disgusting little man.


Good question, Matt. I didn’t know that it had become acceptable. That being said, I agree with you that the Twin Cities media will fall all over themselves attempting to protect the DFL chairman’s reckless remarks. In fact, a quick Google news search on Martin’s name for the past week shows zero results. It doesn’t get much more silent than zero coverage.

Saying that the DFL won’t use dirty tricks to win this year’s budget negotiations is like saying that a Doberman won’t attack a man holding a steak if he’s hungry. Of course, the DFL will resort to their oversized bag of dirty tricks. Actually, this statement is kinda mild compared to some of the BS that Chairman Martin has thrown out in the past:

Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement in response to the latest budgetary stunt pulled by Minnesota Senate Republicans:

Senate Republicans just made reaching a budget agreement much harder. When Senate Republicans passed their entire wish list as an “insurance measure” in case negotiations fail, they gave themselves every incentive to sabotage those negotiations. This is a political stunt, not serious governing. “Minnesotans overwhelmingly voted for DFLers last November. It’s time for Republicans to accept that, drop their gimmicks, and work with DFLers for the good of Minnesotans everywhere.”

Minnesotans didn’t vote overwhelmingly to raise taxes by $12,000,000,000 over the next 4 years. Show me the debate or campaign appearance when Gov. Walz or DFL candidate pledged to raise taxes by $12,000,000,000. Show me the debate or campaign stop where Gov. Walz or DFL legislative candidate pledged to raise the gas tax by 70%.

The DFL won’t produce that video because it doesn’t exist. Period. Further, Gov. Walz and the DFL seem intent on raising taxes at a time when President Trump’s economic policies are producing record revenues across the nation, including Minnesota. Check out this chart:

That’s a chart that the DFL doesn’t want anyone to see. That’s because it shows how much money the DFL has to work with for crafting a new budget. Right now, this year’s budget surplus was $1,052,000,000. Since then, Minnesota took in $489,000,000 more dollars in April than was forecast. In fact, the year-to-date revenue total is $571,000,000 ahead of forecast. Who knows how much next November’s forecast will change for the positive? I’m betting it’ll change significantly.

If that’s the case, why is the DFL still insisting on raising people’s taxes by $12,000,000,000? That’s economic foolishness. But that isn’t the end to the DFL’s foolishness. According the Gov. Walz’s Department of Revenue, Minnesota’s Rainy Day Fund is the biggest it’s been in history at $2,523,000,000.

According to Kurt Daudt, “the DFL could raise spending by 7.3% this biennium without raising taxes.” Apparently, the dishonest DFL thinks that raising spending by 7% isn’t an adequate ‘investment’ in the DFL government’s special interests.

For instance, the DFL insists that Republicans’ Transportation budget will:

  1. underfund road repair
  2. underfund infrastructure in Greater Minnesota
  3. no aid for local governments
  4. no drivers licenses for all..

I didn’t realize that supplying drivers licenses for all illegal immigrants was a high priority for Minnesota taxpayers. Further, I didn’t think that a 7.3% increase in road and bridge repair equals underfunding road and bridge repairs. I didn’t know that raising spending overall by 7.3% was hurting so many people.

Frankly, I don’t think the Republicans’ budget will hurt Minnesotans. Rather, I think the DFL is that far out of touch with Minnesota. Further, I think that 2018 was the aberration, not the truth. I suspect that 2020 will show a significant re-shifting back to what we had prior to 2018.

If the DFL legislature, from both the House and Senate, want to run on raising taxes by $12,000,000,000 at a time when there’s a huge surplus and revenues streaming in well ahead of forecast, God bless them for gift-wrapping huge GOP gains in the House and Senate.

This accusation was inevitable. With Keith Ellison trailing heading into the final week of the campaign, it was inevitable that the Ellison campaign would create this type of BS story at the last minute.

According to the article, “For Ryan Durant, a former high school classmate, Wardlow’s views aren’t just a question of policy. They’re personal. Durant remembers Wardlow as a high school bully who repeatedly harassed him for being gay and as the person who mocked him after he attempted suicide in the 10th grade. Both Durant and Wardlow attended Eagan High School and graduated in the class of 1997. In an account corroborated by several other students, Durant, 39, alleges that Wardlow, who is now 40, bullied him for years because of his sexual orientation. He said Wardlow called him derogatory terms like ‘fag’ and ‘faggot,’ and then escalated to more personal insults such as ‘people like you should be shot.'”

Why wasn’t this reported decades ago? Where’s the evidence that this happened? Further, how does Durant explain this?

I categorically deny these allegations about me when I was 14 years old. I never did or said anything remotely like the things alleged. … Clearly, Ryan Durant is politically motivated. In late 2009, before I held any political office and just after I announced my candidacy for State House, Durant posted on Facebook that he would consider voting for me.

The statement continues:

“Now, Durant frequently compares Republicans to Nazis on his Facebook page, and he recently ‘liked’ Ellison attack dog William Davis’s Facebook comment that Republicans should be sent to the guillotines. The change demonstrates that the allegations are politically motivated lies. Ellison has shopped this story to multiple media outlets as a last-minute ‘Hail Mary’ to save his failing campaign. It will not succeed.”

Clearly, Durant is a partisan. Clearly, the Ellison campaign is flailing. If ever there was a match made in heaven, it’s between Durant and Ellison. Ellison won’t admit that he bullied his ex-girlfriend:

Ken Martin won’t admit that his ‘independent’ investigation was a sham. Ryan Durant can’t afford to admit that he’s now a bitter partisan. Whichever way you slice it, this is a match made in political hell.

Last night on Almanac, Ken Martin, the DFL Party Chairman, did his best to appease the #MeToo movement activists while still defending Keith Ellison. Suffice it to say that he didn’t exactly thread the needle. Martin started by saying that all victims of sexual abuse or assault need to be taken seriously, which is why the DFL undertook an “independent investigation” conducted by the DFL’s official law firm.

Martin failed to highlight the fact that the ‘investigating’ law firm has contributed $500,000 to DFL candidates in the past, including $50,000 to Ellison. Then again, what’s a half-million dollars amongst friends, right.

Another thing that Martin didn’t highlight is the fact that Karen Monahan produced evidence of Ellison’s attack by having her doctor release a document that stated she was physically and mentally abused by Keith Ellison. Despite that proof, Martin still doesn’t believe her:

“I support Karen bringing her allegations forward, and I support there being an investigation into those,” Martin said. “We conducted an outside, independent investigation, and that investigation showed we could not substantiate her claim of domestic abuse. And so I do not believe her; I believe our investigation.”

I can’t take seriously an investigation conducted by a highly conflicted law firm. One conservative I talked with put it this way:

You also have the spectacle of a paunchy, bloated DFL chairman Ken Martin telling us he doesn’t believe her. Instead, we are implausibly expected to believe the DFL’s own “outside” investigation of the matter. Yes, the fox has definitely concluded that there is no evidence he was in the hen house on the night in question.

What could possibly go wrong with an investigation like that? Here’s Chairman Martin tap-dancing as best he could:

Calling that investigation an “independent investigation” is insulting. Further, while Martin used a soft tone of voice, the truth is that he still called Ms. Monahan a liar. That’s one of the reasons why I think Martin isn’t a man of integrity.

Another reason I think Martin isn’t a man of integrity is because he’s defending Keith Ellison, a man who has supported cop-killers like Assata Shakur in the past. Martin is defending Ellison for purely partisan reasons. It’s impossible to think he honestly thinks Ellison is an innocent man.

When the Democrats’ target was Brett Kavanaugh, the #MeToo and #BelieveHer movements were urgent matters. The minute Justice Kavanaugh got confirmed, the Democrats’ war cry died. When Keith Ellison became the focus, the DFL circled the proverbial wagons and started protecting the alleged sexual assaulter.

Harold Hamilton summed things up perfectly when he wrote “With no GOP targets on the front burner, the volume has been turned down, especially since the weapon is now focused on Democrats like Keith Ellison. In fact, the hypocrisy is shameless and appalling. The faces of Minnesota’s feminist movement, including Amy Klobuchar, Tina Smith, and erstwhile gubernatorial candidate Erin Murphy (she of the corny and childish “politics of joy” campaign) have all voiced their support for Keith Ellison and his campaign for attorney general.”

Then he wrote “There is no shortage of photos and video of these leaders happily standing with this credibly accused assaulter and friend of anti-Semites. You also have the spectacle of a paunchy, bloated DFL chairman Ken Martin telling us he doesn’t believe her. Instead, we are implausibly expected to believe the DFL’s own ‘outside’ investigation of the matter. Yes, the fox has definitely concluded that there is no evidence he was in the hen house on the night in question.”

The sad thing is that the DFL’s defense of Keith Ellison won’t save him. At this point, it isn’t likely that he’ll win the AG election. In fact, after he’s defeated, it wouldn’t surprise me if he was forced to resign as deputy chair of the DNC. Once that happens, Ellison’s political career will essentially be over.

When this election passes, the DFL will have lost an important tool to affect progressive change. They will have lost the Minnesota AG’s office to torment companies. That will really hurt when you add their loss against Justice Kavanaugh.

After that string of losses, will the DFL take the time to examine what they did wrong? Anything’s possible but I wouldn’t expect a major shift away from their insanity. That wouldn’t be convenient.

Ken Martin, the chairman of the DFL (Minnesota’s Democratic Party), has just exposed himself as a two-faced liar. When Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford was outed by Sen. Feinstein, Democrats insisted that all women who’d claimed to be abused had to be believed. Mazie Hirono, (D-HI), said that Justice Kavanaugh was guilty until proven innocent.

Yesterday, Ken Martin said that he doesn’t believe Karen Monahan, the ex-girlfriend of Keith Ellison. Ellison is the DFL candidate for Minnesota AG.

The chairman of the Minnesota Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party (DFL) on Wednesday directly challenged the credibility of the woman accusing Attorney General nominee Keith Ellison of domestic violence, telling a reporter, “I don’t believe her.” Ken Martin said that he instead “believes our investigation,” referring to a probe conducted by a partner at a law firm that donated more than $500,000 to Democrats since 1998, including $50,000 to Ellison.

It’s stunning that the Twin Cities media hasn’t laughed Martin out of the state after that sham investigation. Further, it’s disgraceful that Martin would say he trusts the woman who can’t corroborate her allegations from 36 years ago but doesn’t trust the woman who contemporaneously told a doctor about her attack and has released medical documents identifying Keith Ellison as her attacker.

Ken Martin is a dirtbag incapable of telling the truth.
