While the lineup of speakers has changed, the goal remains the same — convince people that there’s a hate crime epidemic sweeping through St. Cloud. Last time, the event was titled “Dismantling Hate Crimes” before it was cancelled amidst a ton of controversy. Last time, the dishonest thugs at the Minnesota Department of Human Rights whined that they were upset that protesters had tried to silence a discussion of hate crimes. That’s a bunch of BS. Jeff Oxton, St. Cloud’s assistant police chief, “said Wednesday the department received no reports of threats related to the event.”

Minnesota Department of Human Rights Commissioner Rebecca Lucero issued a statement that said, in part, “Hate is not a value in St. Cloud or in any part of our state. Our community deserves better. I am heartbroken by the attempts to silence discussion on hate crimes. The goal of the forum was to discuss the community we want to create. One that is full of dignity and joy.”

I pointed out that the event was cancelled before the dozen or so protesters arrived. I also highlighted the fact that no threats were received that day or that week. In other words, the statement was BS.

This time, instead of CAIR’s Jaylani Hussein and MDHR’s Lucero, they’ll have police hating AG Keith Ellison, a former skinhead and career politician wannabe Dan Wolgamott. What this has to do with St. Cloud is beyond comprehension. St. Cloud doesn’t have a hate crimes problem. We definitely don’t have a skinhead problem. Unfortunately, we have a crisis with wannabe career politicians.

According to this article, “Hate crimes and white nationalism will be the focus of a St. Cloud listening session Tuesday night. Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison will be joined by District 14B Rep. Dan Wolgamott and former violent extremist Christian Picciolini from 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Atwood Memorial Center ballroom at St. Cloud State University. Ellison will hear concerns about hate crimes and seek community-based solutions, according to a press release from his office.”

This event is scheduled to last 90 minutes. If it was based on truth, it would last 15 minutes maximum. I don’t understand why a former skinhead’s input makes sense. Frankly, I don’t think it’s relevant. It’s disturbing that Keith Ellison is Minnesota’s AG. He’s a former Nation of Islam activist. He’s also been photographed with Antifa handbooks. Antifa is now classified as a domestic terrorist organization.

Then there’s this:

Keith Ellison is the last person Minnesotans should listen to about hate crimes. Ellison has appeared at a fundraiser for Assata Shakur, a convicted cop killer who escaped from a New Jersey prison and is believed to be exiled in Cuba.

What this bunch of hoaxers have to say on hate crimes and white supremacists is difficult to imagine. Considering Ellison’s history of hate, I wouldn’t think his thoughts on hate crimes was worth much.

People that thought that Keith Ellison wouldn’t drag his corruption into the Minnesota AG’s Office should’ve gotten their heads examined. This article highlights how Keith Ellison hasn’t hesitated in hooking up with ultra-rich progressive special interests.

In this instance, Michael Bloomberg has loaned staff to help Keith Ellison push Bloomberg’s green agenda. Why wouldn’t he? He knows that Ellison will hide Bloomberg’s employees, even if that requires subterfuge. First, the article states that “It came to light last year that a handful of rich left-wing donors led by Michael Bloomberg have collaborated with New York University Law School to recruit, place and pay for lawyers in attorney generals’ offices around the United States. These lawyers, compensated outside the executive structure of state government, are embedded in state governments to pursue lawsuits that fit Bloomberg’s liberal agenda.”

From there, the plot thickens:

A group called Energy Policy Advocates requested documents relating to this scheme from the office of Minnesota’s Attorney General, Keith Ellison. EPA’s requests were made pursuant to Minnesota’s broad Government Data Practices Act. The requests were narrowly tailored to ask for documents relating to 1) correspondence between the AG’s office and a plaintiffs’ law firm, and 2) correspondence between the AG’s Office and a specific individual in another state who was recruiting attorneys general to join Bloomberg’s scheme. The Minnesota Attorney General replied that there are no such documents, or, if there are, they are privileged and will not be produced.

Here’s where things get interesting:

Several news outlets have reported on the lawsuit. The Star Tribune’s story is here. The Strib’s story, mediocre at best, is most notable because it flushes out Keith Ellison’s admission that Minnesota is indeed participating in the Bloomberg scam. Ellison didn’t have much choice: there is a Linked In page by a lawyer who wrote:

I am off on a new adventure as a Fellow with the NYU School of Law’s State Impact Center. I will be embedded with the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office as an Environmental Litigator and Special Assistant Attorney General.

That’s certainly evidence. I wonder how Ellison will try weaseling his way out of that.

In some states, privately funded and agenda-driven “special assistant attorneys general” might only be unethical. Here in Minnesota, they are quite clearly illegal under Minn. Stat. Sec. 8.06, which says:

Except as herein stated, no additional counsel shall be employed and the legal business of the state shall be performed exclusively by the attorney general and the attorney general’s assistants.

In other words, what Ellison is allegedly doing is illegal in Minnesota. Unfortunately, that isn’t surprising. It isn’t surprising because Ellison has praised cop-killers like Assata Shakur. He’s just a low-life.

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.

One of the first things out of Nancy Pelosi’s mouth is potentially stupid. In her op-ed, cowritten with Jim McGovern, Pelosi said “In November, the American people went to the polls and sent an unmistakable message to Washington. By a historic 10 million vote margin, they asked for a Congress that would be more transparent, ethical and focused on debating and advancing good ideas no matter where they come from. They asked for a Congress that would prioritize a positive, forward-looking agenda for the people.”

It’s worth remembering that Ms. Pelosi didn’t initiate a review into Keith Ellison’s alleged molestation of Karen Monahan. Further, Ms. Pelosi is the personification of the Swamp, having started serving in Washington, DC, in 1987.

Ms. Pelosi didn’t check into Rep. Ellison’s alleged misdeeds because that might’ve gotten into her way of becoming speaker again. Is that the personification of a person who’s going to clean the swamp? I don’t think so. Then there’s this:

Third, we will restore Congress’ constitutional role recognizing that the legislative branch is Article I, the first branch of government, coequal to and a check and balance on the executive and the judiciary. We will strengthen the representation of all Americans, and expand the voting rights of representatives elected by our more than 4.5 million fellow Americans from Washington, D.C., and the territories.

This is nothing more than the Democrats’ justification for non-stop investigation into President Trump rather than passing legislation that helps people. The truth is that expectations aren’t high that Pelosi’s House will attempt to accomplish much substantively.

During her speech, Ms. Pelosi said that they “would debate good ideas no matter where they came from.” She’s already failed on that count because walls have protected Israelis from terrorists and South Koreans from invading armies. Frankly, Ms. Pelosi lied during her speech because that’s the Democrats’ nature.

The only question left is how long it’ll take before Democrats go too far.

Last Tuesday night, Keith Ellison was elected to replace Lori Swanson as Minnesota’s Attorney General. In this post, I wrote about Skip Humphrey and Walter Mondale’s op-ed endorsing Ellison for the AG position.

Prior to that op-ed, I’d thought of them as terrible on policy but somewhat of a family legacy. After that op-ed, I’m forced to admit that they’re just like most DFL politicians. They’re a pair of political hacks who put the DFL ahead of what’s best for Minnesotans. They’re a pair of losers, too.

Skip Humphrey’s biggest claim to fame isn’t that he’s Hubert Humphrey’s son. Skip Humphrey’s biggest claim to fame is that he’s the politician who finished last to this clown:

Jesse ‘The Body’ Ventura defeated Norm Coleman but he thrashed Skip Humphrey. After that thrashing, Skip had gone into hiding. He would’ve been better off if he’d stayed out of the limelight.

Walter Mondale’s biggest claim to fame is that he’s the only politician who’s lost elections in all 50 states. In 1984, he lost 49 states in President Reagan’s re-election victory. Mondale won Minnesota’s 10 electoral votes and DC’s 3 electoral votes that year. President Reagan won the nation’s other 525 electoral votes. After Paul Wellstone’s tragic death in a plane crash in northern Minnesota, the DFL recruited Mondale to run against Norm Coleman. That’s when Mondale lost in Minnesota. BTW, everyone my age and older remembers this moment:

Those moment have been eclipsed by Skip Humphrey’s and Walter Mondale’s endorsement of a man who has frequently supported cop-killers. Keith Ellison is a low-life who isn’t qualified to be Minnesota’s AG. It’s quite telling that the DFL hasn’t shown any remorse for endorsing a man credibly accused of beating his ex-girlfriend and who has begged the Castro government not to release Assata Shakur back into US custody.

It’s amazing that 2 men with legitimate legacies would throw them away for a politician like Keith Ellison. Still, that’s precisely what Skip Humphrey and Walter Mondale did in this counterpoint op-ed.

It proves beyond a doubt that there aren’t any moderates left in the DFL. Humphrey and Mondale open their counterpoint op-ed by saying “The Star Tribune Editorial Board erred in its decision not to endorse in the Minnesota attorney general’s race (“Two deeply flawed AG candidates,” Nov. 2). As two former Minnesota attorneys general, we can say with confidence that Keith Ellison is well-prepared to fulfill the important duties of this essential constitutional office and is the only reasonable choice for Minnesota voters in this election.”

Here’s a question for Mssrs. Humphrey and Mondale: What makes Ellison “well-prepared”? His frequent support for cop-killers?

Keith Ellison has always told Minnesotans exactly where he stands, and has acted on his word. He has been a strong advocate for equal opportunity and justice for all in Congress. He has the legal experience necessary to lead this public interest law firm. Over a 16-year career of civil rights and defense law, Ellison headed the state’s premier nonprofit public defense organization, the Legal Rights Center, for five years. He has real experience trying dozens of cases before the court and juries, experience that Mr. Wardlow lacks. Keith Ellison has the right priorities for the office, pledging to protect consumers and workers, and to enforce Minnesota’s strong civil rights laws to protect the rights of all.

Mssrs. Humphrey and Mondale, is it a Minnesota priority to file lawsuit after lawsuit against the federal government because you disagree with a president? Mssrs. Humphrey and Mondale, is it a Minnesota priority to support cop-killers like Assata Shakur and Sharif Willis? Mssrs. Humphrey and Mondale, is it a Minnesota priority to you to support a man credibly accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend?

As far as I’m concerned, Mssrs. Humphrey and Mondale are just typical politicians who put the DFL first and Minnesota last. How disgraceful.

It’s pretty clear that Keith Ellison knows a thing or two about being slippery. With a week left before Election Day, Keith Ellison is still attempting to slip away from Karen Monahan’s accusations.

It’s fun reading that “Keith Ellison stood in front of reporters this week desperate to redefine the attorney general’s race as his poll numbers slide. The Democratic congressman’s campaign has been overshadowed for the two months since his ex-girlfriend accused him of physical and emotional abuse.” As the candidate with near universal name recognition, he’s fighting a difficult problem:

Ellison has denied the allegations, but the damage was done. Once leading Republican opponent Doug Wardlow in polls, Ellison trails by 7 percentage points in the most recent Minneapolis Star Tribune/MPR News survey. Still, Ellison has hope: the same poll shows 16 percent of voters say they’re not sure who they’ll choose. So there he was Thursday in the basement conference room at the state Capitol, imploring voters to examine Wardlow’s record instead of his own troubles.

Ellison doesn’t have much hope. Most undecideds break away from well-known candidates. If they know who you are but are still undecided, that isn’t a vote of confidence. That’s a sign that voters aren’t satisfied with their options.

Here’s mathematical proof that Ellison is in trouble. Let’s suppose that 1,000 likely voters were polled. If Ellison is getting 36% of the vote, then convinced 2/3rds of undecideds to vote him, which is highly unlikely, Ellison would finish with 467 votes. Wardlow is getting 43% of the vote. If he convinced 33% of the undecideds to vote for him, he’d finish with 483 votes.

The reality is that Ellison isn’t likely to win 67% of undecideds. He’ll be lucky to convince 50% of undecideds to vote for him. If Ellison and Wardlow each won half of the undecideds, Wardlow would finish with 51% of the final vote. Frankly, Ellison’s support of Assata Shakur should disqualify him from being Minnesota’s Attorney General:

Then, too, so should Ellison’s statement that he wouldn’t uphold Minnesota laws he doesn’t like. It’s time to end Keith Ellison’s political career.

In this article, Keith Ellison, the DFL’s disgraced candidate for Minnesota’s Attorney General’s office, is quoted as saying “I value and honor all members of law enforcement and am grateful for the work they do every single day.”

With all due respect to Rep. Ellison, that’s a pile of BS. This letter supports #BlackLivesMatter, not law enforcement:

In the letter to the Bloomington City Attorney, Ellison is quoted as saying “I am writing in response to reports that you are considering issuing charges against the organizers of the Black Lives Matters protest at the Mall of America on Saturday, December 20.”

He then adds this:

I request that you reconsider using your prosecutorial discretion to issue such charges. The purpose of the protest was to draw attention to concerns about police-community relations in light of the deaths of Eric Garner, Michael Brown and others in confrontations with police.

Ellison finished his letter by saying this:

The demonstrations didn’t damage property and protesters remained peaceful the throughout the demonstration. Many Minnesotans were inconvenienced during the holiday shopping season and I understand their frustration. Nonetheless, I encourage you and city leaders to consider the broader context of what the protest represented…

Does that sound like a letter who “values and honors all members of law enforcement”? It sounds more like something that a Black Lives Matter activist might say.

Keith Ellison isn’t hiding the fact that he won’t uphold laws he doesn’t like. That’s what he’s saying in this video:

Ellison said “If the state legislature passes laws that don’t make sense, but are constitutional, then I’m going to have to cross that bridge when I get to it.” That statement is what I’d expect from a narcissist who thinks he’s the ultimate decider of which laws get enforced and which once won’t. Ellison isn’t arguing for the principle of prosecutorial discretion. He didn’t mention a lack of resources.

Specifically, Ellison talked about laws “that don’t make sense” but that are constitutional. Who gives him the authority to determine which laws makes sense? I’m certain that Minnesota’s Constitution doesn’t. What are Ellison’s criteria for judging which laws make sense?

Apparently, being Minnesota’s chief law enforcement officer doesn’t interest Ellison, either:

Apparently, Ellison thinks that the Minnesota Attorney General’s office should be used to thwart President Trump’s agenda or advance the Democrats’ agenda. What else did he mean when he said “Some of my opponents have been trying to argue that I’m going to sort of leave the federal Congress to come back to Minnesota to try to use the state Attorney General’s Office as some sort of political platform. And the truth is I do plan on doing some national litigation.”

If Democrats want to sue President Trump, then let them raise the money and open their own law firm. Minnesota’s taxpayers shouldn’t pay the price for Keith Ellison’s or the Democrats’ activism.

The choice couldn’t be clearer. A vote for Keith Ellison is a vote for advancing the Democrats’ agenda of obstructing President Trump by any means necessary. A vote for Doug Wardlow is a vote to restore law and order in Minnesota.

Tim Walz just couldn’t resist the opportunity to play politics after the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting. After the shooting, Walz took to Twitter to say “As we learn more about what’s happened in Pittsburgh, my heart goes out to the victims, loved ones, first responders, and Jewish community at large. This is a pain that is all too familiar in America. We can and must take action to reduce gun violence in our communities.”

Does anyone seriously think he cares about the people killed by this gunman? I certainly don’t. This is just another attempt by Walz to curry favor with the gun grabber fringe in the DFL.


It’s clear that Tim Walz has gone from being a reliable vote for the NRA to being a reliable vote for Michael Bloomberg. He’s no longer a centrist. He’s a leftist. On Nov. 6, it’s time to retire Tim Walz, Tina Smith and Keith Ellison.
