Credible allegations of domestic abuse against Dem AG candidate Keith Ellison

Allegedly Ellison was abusive with a former partner. Her son made the accusation on Facebook and claims there are text messages and a video to corroborate the abuse. I don't know if it's real or not, but the relationship appears to be and the claimed evidence presents a testable claim.

Normally, I'd say back off a bit on this stuff. This is an attack on character not policy, with unproven allegations that may never see a court of law, and (while not flattering) are not necessarily disqualifying.

But these are the new rules. Democrats use this sort of accusation against Republican candidates all the time, often when the accusations are a lot less credible with less supporting evidence. As far as I'm concerned, you can blanket Ellison's state with ads featuring the video. Democrats no longer get a free pass.

UPDATE: Another allegation.

Attorney-Client privilege no longer a thing, I guess?

Hot Air quoting NYSlimesPresident Trump’s longtime lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, secretly recorded a conversation with Mr. Trump two months before the presidential election in which they discussed payments to a former Playboy model who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump, according to lawyers and others familiar with the recording.

The F.B.I. seized the recording this year during a raid on Mr. Cohen’s office. The Justice Department is investigating Mr. Cohen’s involvement in paying women to tamp down embarrassing news stories about Mr. Trump ahead of the 2016 election. Prosecutors want to know whether that violated federal campaign finance laws, and any conversation with Mr. Trump about those payments would be of keen interest to them…

Rudolph W. Giuliani, Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer, confirmed in a telephone conversation on Friday that Mr. Trump had discussed the payments with Mr. Cohen on the tape but said the payment was ultimately never made. He said the recording was less than two minutes and demonstrated that the president had done nothing wrong.

So Trump talks to his lawyer, Cohen, who records it for unknown reasons. Prosecutors with ties to Mueller then raid Cohen's office to get the recording in a clear violation of attorney-client privilege. The recording then somehow ends up in the hands of the New York Times, which prints a story on it because it embarrasses the President even if no payment ended up happening and nothing illegal was done.

This bullshit is going to continue until the Trump admin finds some way to push back against the people doing it.

The left is going full Weimar

Front Page Mag What they want is to wreck America, go full Weimar, move to street violence, and then, by persuasion or force, impose their own system to deal with the emergency. What better way to trash most of the forms of government, the Constitution, checks and balances, than by burning everything down.

The excuses, border separation, police shootings, etc are just excuses for that endgame. They're propaganda to achieve an end.

We got here because all the brakes came off the left's train. It beat its liberal opponents. And now it's going to scream endlessly that everyone on the right is a Nazi because that justifies its intended violence. And that violence is intended to further radicalize everyone to the left.

Civility? Please.

The whole purpose is an overthrow of the existing order in the name of a political emergency. It's what every totalitarian system does. Set off violence, then seize power. The left doesn't have good odds of pulling it off. But the Dem leadership is incapable of controlling them. Or preventing them from wrecking its electoral plans.

They might have been able to resist once they got through the primaries, but the retirement of Kennedy will raise the stakes. They backed themselves into a corner with the various filibuster policies, and they are going to have to pay the price for that.

Socialist calls for burning down the opposition's tent

Daily CallerFlorida International University student Andy Vila, chairman of a Young Democratic Socialists of America chapter, delivered a speech about fighting capitalism, conservative values, and President Trump, who he deems a “fascist.”

During the “How to Fight Fascism and the Right” spiel, Vila posed the question, “Now that I know how Right-wingers will act, how can I smash them?”

“We were like, ‘Okay, guys, so these guys are gonna spread their BS message on our campus, what do we do? We obviously can’t burn down their tent, as much as we want to, because that’s a bad thing I guess.'”

This sort of hateful advocacy of violence is (and probably should remain) legal, but should also be heavily criticized and denied an audience by responsible organizations. Those who call for violence against their political opponents should be lonely, solitary voices lacking in support, platform, or audience.

Unfortunately, we're seeing increasing calls for violence from people with support and with audiences, including this young socialist idiot.

Some would stop and ask whether the typical response to calls to confiscate firearms ("Molon Labe!", meaning, "Come and take them!", a reference to the last stand of the Spartans at Thermopylae) is a call for violence. It is, but it is a call for violence in defense of self and fundamental rights, and it occurs in the context of defending the principles of the nation's founding. Governments which attempt to confiscate guns violate the 2nd Amendment and the contract that grants them their powers.

The difference between violence in righteous self defense and just burning down the tent of the political opposition because you hate them and want to smash them is vast.

Can you work for DOJ and participate in mob harassment?

Daily CallerOne of the activists who chased Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen out of a Mexican restaurant Tuesday night over the Trump administration’s immigration policies is an employee of the Department of Justice, The Daily Caller News Foundation has confirmed.

Members of the Washington, D.C., chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America crashed Nielsen’s meal with a demonstration full of chants and other outbursts.

One of those participants, Allison Hrabar, actually works for the Trump administration — as a paralegal in the DOJ.

Right now it looks like you can.

Former police officer charged with making threats against Trump

Washington ExaminerA Tennessee man has been charged with two counts of making threats against the president, the Justice Department announced Thursday night.

According to the DOJ, 37-year-old Andrew Long Ryan of Greenbrier, Tenn., was indicted Wednesday by a federal grand jury in regard to a string of threatening social media messages he posted on May 28 and 29, while President Trump was visiting Nashville.

Ryan, a former Bowling Green police officer, wrote "Death is coming,” on Facebook and tweeted that he "will kill Donald Trump if you don’t follow my leaders lead."

I wonder who his leaders are?

Washington ExaminerEarlier in 2018, a Utah man was indicted on 11 charges of threatening to kill the president during Trump's visit to Salt Lake City.

33-year-old Travis Luke Dominguez alerted the Unified Police Department of the Greater Salt Lake of his threat himself, writing via their tip line he "woke up and decided to kill the president Donald Trump today."

"Please forgive me and then I will die by suicide by cop," he continued before doubling down on killing "the sexist, racist, homophobic President Trump today."

"Nothing you can do to save President Trump nor stop me pigs," he wrote and threatened to harm any police officers who might try to stop him.

The media freakout has consequences.
