Karen Monahan has release medical records that help back up her claim that she was abused by Keith Ellison. This comes after the abuse was brought forward last month.
Dan Feehan the DFL candidate in Minnesota’s 1st Congressional District has a history of working with the establishment left.
From June to August in 2012 while attending graduate school at Harvard Kennedy School of Government, Mr. Feehan worked for the Mayor’s Office in Chicago. During this time he served under Rahm Emanuel in the cities Fellowship Program.
Mr. Feehan as a fellow in The Mayor’s Office Fellowship Program, he worked to “deliver recommendations and implement programs that improve the lives of Chicago’s 2.7 million residents.”
Fellows in the program also have the following duties:
- Work directly with the Mayor’s senior staff
- Research policies and evaluate their potential benefit to Chicago
- Meet with Commissioners, Aldermen, senior-level staff from various City departments and sister agencies, community partners, and experts in a variety of policy fields
- Draft memoranda on upcoming issues and new initiatives
- Learn about the work and mission of the City’s departments through weekly presentations by department commissioners and senior level staff, and via guided tours of City facilities
- Attend press conferences, City Council meetings, staff meetings, and strategic planning sessions
- Develop “New Ideas” for City policies and initiatives
After his time with Rahm Emanuel Mr. Feehan was a member of “The White House Fellows” in the Obama administration. He was a fellow in the program from August 2013 to August 2014 after he continued to serve the administration as a Assistant Secretary of Defense.
The question now becomes how much of their radical agenda has Mr. Feehan picked up? We already know he supports universal health care and strict gun control. Is there more he isn’t telling us? We don’t want to have Chicago style politics brought to Minnesota, only time will tell where he truly stands. However, it’s important that the voters of Minnesota’s 1st district know who he has worked for in the past. That way they can make an informed decision as more facts come in.
A new poll confirms that Americans continue to oppose most abortions, including a majority of women and Millennials.
The American Barometer poll for The Hill found that 55 percent of Americans think abortions should be illegal in all or most cases, while just 18 percent think it should be legal for any reason up to birth.
The poll asked registered voters if they think abortions should be illegal in a circumstances, legal in limited circumstances such as rape, incest and risks to the mother’s life, legal under most circumstances until viability, or legal under all circumstances.
Strong majorities oppose most or all abortions, including 58 percent of men, 53 percent of women and 57 percent of Millennials, the poll found.
According to the poll, 27 percent said abortions should be legal up to viability, and 18 percent said it should be legal under all circumstances.
Opposition to abortion was particularly strong among Republicans with a full 71 percent saying it should be illegal in all or most circumstances. Among Democrats, 44 percent said abortions should be illegal in all or most circumstances.
“Republicans, traditionally the more conservative on this issue, are evenly split on whether it should be law. I read that as for many voters, this is territory that cannot be overturned,” Morning Consult reporter Joanna Piacenza told Hill.TV.
The poll was conducted on 1,000 registered voters at the end of August, according to the report.
The race in Minnesota’s 1st district is between Republican Jim Hagedorn and DFL candidate Dan Feehan is heating up. Which means the money is flowing, giving us a clearer picture on the candidates.
One major fact sticks out when looking at the money trail. That Dan Feehan is raising more, and that he is the candidate of choice for those out of state.
Dan Feehan has received 2000 individual donations so far this election. Only 561 of them have come from Minnesota. Compared to Jim Hagedorn with 864 total individual donations with 676 of them coming from Minnesota. That works out to be 72% of Feehan’s donations coming from out of state to Hagedorn’s 22%. This data is coming from the “processed data” of the FEC if you would go off the “raw data” Dan Feehan would have 80% of his donations coming from out of state.
The total cash break down would be $1,132,405.32 raised for Feehan, and $847,791.91 for Hagedorn. If you break it down more you’ll find Feehan received only $209,900.95 from individuals in Minnesota. Which is only 18% of his funds! Compared to Jim Hagedorn with 66% of his funds coming from individuals in Minnesota.
A total of $498,047.27 has come into the Feehan campaign in the form of itemized individual contributions from out of state. California the state of Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters is one of the states leading the way. California has had individuals donate a total of $111,031.56 to the Feehan. Which a little more than half the amount donated by Minnesotans.
The question now will be will Minnesota’s 1st district want a man who is bought and paid for by those out of state to represent them? Do they want another representative who vote with Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters? Or do they want a man who will truly represent the Minnesotans of the 1st district? The money doesn’t lie, it’s clear where these men will line up.
Last Wednesday Jalale left the gym to meet a couple of girlfriends for drinks and a bite to eat at a restaurant in downtown Minneapolis. It was a casual send-off for a member of the trio who was leaving for London in a few days and Jalale, hair slightly disheveled after a workout, tossed on her Make America Great Again hat before entering the restaurant. They got a table on the rooftop and ordered a round of beers and some appetizers.
“We’re three black girls, all professionals, and one of my girlfriends says, ‘please don’t wear that hat. We don’t want any crap today,’” Jalale says, laughing. She took it off and set it on the table in front of her. Although her friends “absolutely hate Trump,” she says they still manage to put politics aside and get along. But a table of young men sitting next to Jalale also noticed the hat, and began antagonizing Jalale.
“They were saying I’m a disgrace, that I don’t know who I am, all this stuff as if they even know me,” Jalale, 30, says. “And I was digging deep into them to really get an understanding as to why they have so much hate for Trump. This happens all the time. Can I just wear a hat, please? I don’t want to deliver a political dissertation every time I leave my house. I just like Trump, O.K.?”
She says the exchange was civil and after they’d finished up and paid the ladies headed out, stopping off at the downstairs bar for a quick shot before going home. As they held their shot glasses an employee of the restaurant, called Cowboy Slims, barrelled down the stars, shouting at the women, “Hey! You’re cut off! Just because you were cut off upstairs doesn’t mean you can come downstairs to drink!” he yelled. The women looked at each other confused, believing he had mistaken them for another group. They’d only had one beer each earlier. “You either take the shot right now or get the hell out,” the man shouted, then snatched the glasses from their hands and began to escort the women to the door. At this time the group of men who’d engaged them earlier also came down the stairs and noticed the commotion.
“Oh, shit. It’s because of the hat, isn’t it?” one said, and the employee, who identified himself as a manager, nodded affirmatively and gave the man an approving hand gesture. The men then began pumping their fists and chanting, “Black power!”
