In the midst of a highly contentious midterm election campaign, the battle for Minnesota’s newest Attorney General just got even more heated. Political rival Rep. Debra Hillstrom (D-MN) shared a recent post accusing DNC Vice Chairman Keith Ellison (D-MN) of “domestic abuse.” The two are both vying along with six others in the upcoming election for AG in Minnesota.
Hillstrom took to Twitter calling on Ellison to “answer these allegations.”
This post was brought to my attention because I was tagged in this post. Domestic Violence is never ok. The incidents described are troubling. I call on Keith Ellison to answer these allegations.https://t.co/CQ1LSVfZqf

The accusations come from the son of 44-year-old Karen Monahan, an environmental organizer with the far left Sierra Club. Karen dated Ellison at some point after his divorce in 2012 until sometime in 2016. On Saturday, her son Austin posted a lengthy letter detailing abuse he says his mother endured at the hands of Ellison.
He describes finding “over 100 text and twitters messages and video almost 2 min long” on his mother’s computer showing Ellison dragging his mother off a bed by her feet, screaming “f*cking bitch!”
Austin details what he allegedly discovered back in 2017, stating in part –
“My brother and I watched our mom come out of pure hell after getting out of her relationship with Keith Ellison. For several months we knew something wasn’t right and couldn’t figure it out. When we asked our mom if everything was ok, she told us she was dealing with some stress and would be ok.
In the middle of 2017, 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 “fucking bitch” and telling her to get the fuck out of his house. The messages I found, were mixed with him consistently telling my mom he wanted her back, he missed her, he knew he fucked up and we wished he could do things different, he would victim shaming, bully her, and threaten her if she went public. I text him and told him I know what you did to my mama and a few other things.
I met up with my mom that night and asked her what happened. She said nothing happened until I told her I saw a video and hell of a lot of messages saying something different. She finally talked. My brother and I were so angry and hurt for our mom. We were ready to go public but our mom begged us not to and she along with others convinced us it wasn’t in our moms best interest.”
Austin continued –
“I saw message after message through out all that time, where my mom was telling him she wasn’t going back to him but still saw his humanity and offered restorative justice. I honestly don’t see how she would offer him that, but thats her choice.
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. You think we give a shit about a politics when we saw what our mom went through? She may not matter to none of you, but she is our mom, our kids grandmother and she is actually someone. There is a lot more he has done to my mom and others that we saw in the text but our mom can decide if and when she wants to tell the world that part.”
He adds a stinging rebuke against Democrats, stating – “I use to believe the Democrats were the ones who would stand by a person who went through this kind of abuse, now I know both Democrats and Republicans could care less when it comes to violence toward women and girls.”
Please read, if you care about my mother please share.I love you momma, you wont have to stand…
Ellison is a father of four and serving his sixth term in Congress. He was named deputy chairman of the DNC in 2017. The party’s current chairman, Tom Perez, has offered no comment regarding the accusations levied against Ellison.
Ellison himself issued a statement in response to the accusations levied against him late Sunday evening stating – “Karen and I were in a long-term relationship which ended in 2016, and I still care deeply for her well-being. This video does not exist because I never behaved in this way, and any characterization otherwise is false.”
Karen then tweeted in response, her support for her son’s claims on Sunday afternoon, stating – “What my son said is true. Every statement he made was true. …(Keith Ellison) you know you did that to me. I have given every opportunity to get help and heal. Even now, u r willing to say my son is lying and have me continue to leak more text and info just so others will believe him for you to get help and heal. Told u that would be what I would could consider a Just ending to this hell my family and I have been through. I said that the night before u announced ur run 4 AG.”
She also released a lengthy statement detailing her accusations that you can read here. In the statement, she outlines what she calls Ellison’s “narcissist abuse” of her during their relationship and makes other accusations about what occurred during their relationship.
This is an example of how a narcissist responds when you confront them about their lies and abusive. victim shaming.
let's just not talk. It's not good or healthy. So long.
Actually, it's a sad thing that you're so bitter, so angry, so resentful. But that's your burden.

Ellison’s ex-wife, Kim Ellison also released a statement in response to the accusations levied against her now ex-husband, stating – “We may be divorced, but we are still a family. I want members of our community to know that the behavior described does not match the character of the Keith I know.”
Austin then told the Star Tribune – “I only know what I saw and I know what’s true. It was my job to stand up for my mother. I have no reason to tear down this man.” He told the newspaper he does not have the video that he saw in 2017.
Libs Heads Explode Over What Trump ‘Dared’ To Say To Hurricane Victim – LOVE IT!
Now I think we can all collectively say we have now heard everything from the left.
The left wing in this country is trying to take President Trump to task over a joke. Yes, folks, a harmless joke in a situation where it was much needed.
Left wing sites are now reporting that while President Trump was surveying the storm ravaged area in North Carolina he questioned a man if the boat that had been shipwrecked behind his house was his, according to a White House pool report.
“At least you got a nice boat out of the deal,” Trump stated when the man responded that the once luxurious boat was not his. Trump then continued to say that he thought the boat was “incredible” and detailed that under the law it might now belong to the owners of the home.
So otherwise he was trying to make like out of a dire situation in order to lift the spirits of the home’s owner. Something that is wonderful to do onto itself since that person had lost everything.
Here is more on this via The Political Voice:
President Trump reportedly told a victim of Hurricane Florence on Wednesday that he “got a nice boat out of the deal”about a large yacht that had crashed ashore during the harrowing storm.
While strolling an area in North Carolina devastated by the storm, Trump questioned a man if the boat that had been shipwrecked behind his house was his, according to a White House pool report.
“At least you got a nice boat out of the deal,” Trump stated when the man responded that the once luxurious boat was not his.
Trump continued to say that he thought the boat was “incredible” and detailed that under the law it might now belong to the owners of the home.

Trump made the remarks while in New Bern, N.C, a town that was struck by Florence when it made the first landfall late last week.
Trump earlier this Wednesday informed local officials and residents in the Carolinas that his administration will stand by recovery efforts “100 percent.”
“We will be there 100 percent, and all of the folks from the federal government that are around the table, they’re confirming it,” he said during a briefing at the Marine Corps Air Station in Cherry Point, N.C. “That’s why we started early, and we’ll be here late.”
Trump arrived in New Bern in the early afternoon Wednesday before heading to South Carolina to look over the areas of the state affected by the storm.
Here’s how Americans reacted:
How long before he concludes the biggest victim of Hurricane Florence is himself?

Unbelievable. On second thought, totally believable. #45 has no sense of propriety.

Tone deaf. No sense of when jokes are appropriate and inappropriate.
— Glenn Jonas (@Docjonas) September 19, 2018
Isn’t it about time we all take a deep breath and start to see that sometimes we just need a sense of humor in order to get by? Those of us on the right have a sense of humor, if not we wouldn’t have been able to survive 8 long years of the community organizer Barack Hussein Obama as our president. But the left just can’t seem to get over the fact that Hillary Clinton lost the election to Donald Trump. So they try day after to do take out our president.
Here is a reminder from Business Insider of how a real American loving President should react under a crisis such as a hurricane:
“President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump announced on Wednesday a personal donation of $1 million to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. The money will go to twelve organizations, including the Red Cross, Salvation Army, and the ASPCA.
Hurricane Harvey, which ripped through Houston and parts of the Texas coastline, covered much of the city in water, destroying homes and displacing thousands of residents.
The Trumps visited Texas during the immediate aftermath of the storm, where they met with officials and oversaw relief work conducted by both federal agencies and volunteer groups.
The White House notes that many of the organizations the Trumps donated to were recommended by members of the White House press corps.
Here’s where the money is going:
Red Cross — $300,000
Salvation Army — $300,000
Reach Out America — $100,000
Samaritan’s Purse — $100,000
ASPCA — $25,000
Catholic Charities — $25,000
Direct Relief — $25,000
Habitat for Humanity — $25,000
Houston Humane Society — $25,000
Operation Blessing — $25,000
Portlight Inclusive Disaster Strategies — $25,000
Team Rubicon — $25,0000
Trump landed in hot water during the 2016 campaign when reporters dug into his claims that he donated $1 million to the fundraiser he held for veterans in lieu of attending a Republican debate that year. Reporters had a hard time confirming how much money has actually been distributed to veterans groups.”
Kavanaugh’s Accuser About To Cash In BIG TIME And Hasn’t Even Testified!
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by DownTrend
Christine Blasey Ford has made some serious allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that she can neither back up or or is even willing to testify about. The democrats have used these unfounded unprovable allegations in a attempt to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the high court, because they don’t have the votes to stop him. As if this story wasn’t already dumb enough, some rando has started a GoFundMe campaign and you just know liberals will pour money into this ridiculous thing.
Ford claims that Kavanaugh and a friend sexually assaulted her at a party in the 1980’s. She doesn’t know when this supposedly happened or where or how she even ended up at the party. They only witness to this alleged crime says it never happened and there are tons of inconsistencies with this vague story. She is also a registered democrat and liberal activist with a bone to pick with Kavanaugh’s family.
Ford was invited to testify before the the Senate Judiciary committee to tell her story, but she has declined. She also claims that she is now getting death threats and has had to go underground for the safety or her family.
That brings us to this silly GoFundMe campaign:
Due to death threats, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford (who uses “Dr. Blasey” professionally) and her family have had to leave their residence and arrange for private security. Let’s create a fund to cover her security expenses, to do just a bit to make it easier for women in her position to come forward despite great risks. If we raise more than Dr. Blasey needs, extra funds will go to women’s organizations and/or into an account to cover similar costs incurred in comparable situations.
The person who started this campaign doesn’t even know Ford, but felt the need to do something:
I do not know Dr. Blasey personally but will contact her via her former high school, Holton Arms, to inform her of this fundraising appeal and to make arrangements to transfer funds to Dr. Blasey.
I am a professor of law at Georgetown University who has raised money formally and informally for other causes over the years. My reason for starting this fundraiser is to make concrete the power of collective action in providing security, and therefore support, for Dr. Blasey’s willingness to contribute to a thorough, fair vetting of a nominee for Supreme Court Justice.
Fair vetting? Ford made an outrageous accusation on the eve of Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote and then refused to testify on these things she can’t provide any evidence of. That’s completely unfair and any law professor could attest to that.
Oh wait, it turns out the person who started this bullshit GoFundMe campaign really is a law professor at Georgetown Law. Here’s her bio on Women’s Media Center:
Heidi Li Feldman is Professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center, with a courtesy appointment in the Philosophy Department at Georgetown University. She has written major articles on tort law and on legal ethics. Her scholarly expertise includes the U.S. civil justice system more generally. Currently, Dr. Feldman’s scholarship focuses on how and whether U.S. cities and states can protect civil rights and strengthen civil society. Read More
