'Fact-Checkers' Continue Ignoring Ellison's Pile of False Claims

April 22nd, 2018 7:59 PM
On April 13, Minnesota Congressman and DNC Deputy Chair Keith Ellison told a "progressive" audience that "Women are dying because we are losing elections," specifically alleging that this is the case in Texas and Missouri. It was yet another false claim — even if numerically true, the results would have to be tied to specific actions by Republican lawmakers in those states, and they aren't — in…

Ellison Refuses to Say If Democrats Will Repeal Middle-Class Tax Cuts

April 3rd, 2018 11:07 PM
Democrat representative and DNC vice chairman Keith Ellison could be forgiven if he thought he would be tossed softball questions by MSNBC's Steve Kornacki on Sunday night. However, even on MSNBC liberals will occasionally (but rarely) be hit with hardballs. Such was the case when Kornacki kept asking Ellison over and over if the Democrats would support the repeal of middle class tax cuts in the…

CNN's Blackwell: Bannon 'Extremism' More Newsworthy Than Farrakhan

March 11th, 2018 5:09 PM
On New Day Sunday, CNN viewers finally saw the recent controversy over Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan's ties to Democrats at least mentioned by someone other than Jake Tapper during a discussion of former Donald Trump advisor Steve Bannon's speech to a right-wing political group in France. But -- in spite of the incendiary and blatantly racist nature of some of Farrakhan's comments, some…

WashPost Throws '4 Pinocchios' at Deputy DNC Chair on Farrakhan Ties

March 11th, 2018 4:55 PM
The Washington Post broke into reporting on Louis Farrakhan and the Democrats on Sunday with a “Fact Checker” column by Glenn Kessler. On page A-4, Kessler gave Rep. Keith Ellison – deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee – a “four Pinocchios” rating for insisting he had no involvement with Farrakhan since 2006.

NY Times Story on Farrakhan and Dems Omits Ellison, Carson, 4 Others

March 10th, 2018 10:21 PM
Until Friday, the New York Times had not mentioned Louis Farrakhan in a serious story since October. The Old Gray Lady tried mightily to avoid covering Democrats' and leftist leaders' past and recent embraces of the controversial Nation of Islam leader before finally — but very incompletely — giving in. Jonah Engel Bromwich's story failed to mention Congressmen Keith Ellison and Andre Carson, and…

Media Ignore Farrakhan Ties to House Democrats, Calls for Resignations

March 9th, 2018 11:36 AM
On Thursday evening, the broadcast network evening news casts all ignored the current controversy over Democratic ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan sparked by his most recent spate of racist and anti-Semitic comments, as the Republican Jewish Coalition has called on seven congressional Democrats to resign, including DNC deputy chair Keith Ellison. In fact, with the exception of CNN's…

FNC Highlights Farrakhan Ties to House Democrats, Resignation Calls

March 8th, 2018 1:32 PM
On Thursday morning, uniquely among the day's morning shows, FNC's Fox and Friends gave attention to the Republican Jewish Coalition calling for the resignations of seven congressional Democrats who have ties with National of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, in light of a recent speech in which he attacked "Satanic" Jews and whites.

AP Pushes Nothing-Here Item to Cover For Ellison's Pro-Antifa Tweet

January 6th, 2018 5:50 PM
Thursday evening, an unbylined Associated Press item finally recognized the existence of Democratic National Committee Deputy Chair Keith Ellison's tweet taunting President Trump with a violence-advocating "antifa" book accompanied by a grammar-challenged message: “I just found the book that strike fear in the heart of @realDonaldTrump." The obvious purpose of the gatekeeping wire service's piece…

Nets Omit Dem Official Blaming Obama for Party Failures in Elections

April 21st, 2017 12:16 AM
Following their humiliating defeat in the 2016 election, the Democratic Party found themselves in a terrible place where they were down over 1000 seats through all levels of government since 2008. And according to one high-ranking Party official, one person held the blame. “The number two official for the Democrats says former President Obama is to blame for the Party's recent electoral failures…

The Pouting and Shouting Left Is Just Being Itself

February 27th, 2017 5:11 PM
I'd almost forgotten how unreasonable the left can be when out of power, but liberals are giving us a daily refresher course, and it's almost hard to take seriously -- except we must. They describe everything President Donald Trump does in hyperbolic terms. He's a fascist. He's destroying our liberties. He disrespects the rule of law. He represents a threat to humanity. He is going to start a…

Dickerson Feebly Presses Ellison on Anti-Israel Comments & Slam by ADL

January 31st, 2017 3:11 PM
As Minnesota Democratic Representative and DNC chair candidate Keith Ellison appeared as a guest on Sunday's Face the Nation on CBS to react to President Donald Trump's recent restrictions on immigration, host John Dickerson made a feeble attempt to get the far left Congressman to respond to the anti-Defamation League slamming him for anti-Israel comments he made at a private meeting in 2010.…

Camerota Wrongly Claims Trump to Bar NGOs Discussing 'Contraception'

January 25th, 2017 8:15 AM
On Tuesday's New Day, during a segment with Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison as a guest, CNN's Alisyn Camerota referred to President Donald Trump's reinstatement of the Mexico City Policy and wrongly claimed that it would bar NGOs from discussing "contraception," even though the policy would only withhold federal funding if they perform or encourage abortion. Near the end of the segment,…

CNN Fails to Recall Anti-Israel, Pro-'Jihad' Views of Ellison Ally

December 15th, 2016 8:55 AM
Imagine if any prominent Republican politician had a history of a mutual relationship with a political activist who either openly expressed sympathies with the KKK or those who violently attack abortion clinics --  and even helping each other fundraise and endorsing each other's political campaigns. There would rightly be near universal condemnation for a willingness to associate with that kind…

Media Mum? Keith Ellison in 2012: Nazis 'Attacked Pearl Harbor'

November 26th, 2016 11:54 PM
The leftist press give gaffes made by Republicans years and even decades of shelf life. They roasted Bush 41 Vice President Dan Quayle for years for adding a "e" at the end of "potato" with the "help" of a flashcard which had the word spelled incorrectly — not only in the press, but also on the late-night talks shows. Gaffes by Democrats, liberals and even far-lefties tend to get a complete pass…
