Should Congressman Keith Ellison Be Charged with Treason?

U.S. Congressman Keith Ellison has a long and detailed history of working with terrorists and others plotting to overthrow the United States government, in direct violation of U.S. Federal Code and Ellison’s Oath of Office.

UTT is asking the question:  Is there enough evidence to charge him with Materially Supporting Terrorism and Treason?

Keith Ellison is a muslim who converted to Islam as a young man.

Ellison believes sharia (Islamic law) – the barbaric legal system called for by the Islamic State, Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, the OIC (Organisation of Islamic Cooperation), and other Islamic groups – should be the law of the land everywhere.

Ellison spoke at the National Lawyers Guild fundraiser for Sara Jane Olson in 2000.  Sara Jane Olson was a terrorist with the Symbionese Liberation Army who was in hiding for 25 years before being arrested in 1999.

Congressman Ellison regularly meets and strategizes with the leader of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and the terrorist group Hamas in the United States – doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) – Nihad Awad.  The two are very close and work together on propelling the Islamic Movement forward in the United States.

Ellison supports and meets with leaders of Muslim Brotherhood organizations such as the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).  In the largest terrorism financing trial ever successfully prosecuted in American history (US v HLFRD, Dallas 2008), ISNA is identified by the U.S. government as a Muslim Brotherhood organization which financially supports the terrorist group Hamas.

See ISNA’s financial documents entered into evidence revealing their direct financing of Hamas here.

Ellison has been a speaker at Muslim Brotherhood national conferences (ISNA, CAIR, et al) in the United States.

The stated goals of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Movement is to overthrow the United States government and replace it with an Islamic State under sharia.  See MB By-Laws here.

Now, Ellison is publicly supporting the violent revolutionary group Antifa.

Ellison’s choice of words in his tweet is telling, especially when juxtaposed with the Koranic verse from which the sentiment likely came.

“Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah.”  Koran 8:60

These few facts, at a minimum, constitute Reasonable Suspicion to believe Congressman Keith Ellison is acting against the interests of the United States, using his office to aid and abet enemies of the United States, materially supporting a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (Hamas), and participating in activities with individuals and organizations directly working to overthrow the United States government.

All of these are violations of the law and appear to meet the legal standard of Treason under Title 18 U.S. Federal Code Section 2381 which reads:

“Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

  1. Question: Why does he keep getting reelected?

    • A couple reasons. For one thing, he lives in the safest democrat congressional district in Minnesota, representing Minneapolis. Add to that a complete and total media blackout on anything that might be remotely injurious to Ellison. His constituents don’t have the slightest notion what he stands for and they don’t care enough to look.

    • Higher than average population of Muslims in his district.

      • Do not fear. God is at work. Corruption in politics, wickedness in entertainment and soon a cleaning up of The Church is not too big for God. We saw unprecedented filth and wickedness exposed, and continuing to be exposed throughout Hollywood and politics last year. God will get around to Ellison if he is working against America. If you haven’t noticed Trump was ‘to be’ President and it was the people who were used to carry out the plan because the leadership in the country has lost their way and God is correcting America’s course.

      • You are absolutely right, There is a incredible huge Muslim Population in his district and in the state in general.The question should be: How there are so many of them in our country, why former administrations and ,legislators from both sides in Congress ignored the truth about Muslims in America?why they ignored intentionally or not the real intentions of Muslim organizations in US.? Why members of Congress ignore the advice of members and former members of the CIA and FBI about the real intentions of Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliated.
        Yes, Ellison should be expeled from Congress, the same way that Muslim mayors, aspiring to government positions Muslim people. All these people follow the Koran,and the Koran screams death to infidels, Muslim organizations have one objetive,which is destroy the United State, the Western Civilization,and replace it by theirs,the Civilization Jihad. So what we are waiting for? Clinton’s and Obama’s administrations allowed them here, is time for Trump’s administration to throw them out, facts are there, proofs exist.

      • Also the largest Mosque in the world is built here! Last informed, over 200,000 attendees.

    • Minneapolis, city of proven voter fraud.

    • I would like to know that top. My opinion is that it is because we have too many Muslims here some came in as refugees and some as secondary wave. It is time they were all repatriated to their own lands other countries have done so and so should we.

      • I don’t comprehend how come America doesn’t do the same. If they don’t understand the threat let’s see if we can’t get them educated. I ordered one of John’s books at the Barnes and a Noble near me and it never came in and when a I asked they acted like I didn’t exist.

    • Because people are Blind to the Truth. CNN makes no mention of it so it is business as usual for the Muslim Brotherhood.

    • My guess is because MN has so many “Useful Idiots”

      • Thanks John and Thanks to all of you that are helping to reach people that have no idea about this very real and present threat. I have published this site many times and will continue to do so. Jack

    • BY USEFUL IDIOTS

  2. Because Minnesota is essentially a home and safe haven for cowardly anarchists, and loony Bernie Sanders types. It has become a place apart from the United States of America now, and the powers that be, who govern (rule) this place, are very proud of that very sick distinction.

    A soft, but not so subtle version of sharia law is in full bloom in Minnesota now, and that includes many in the top tier(s) of Minnesota law enforcement, and The Courts as well. As they say, “Attitude reflects leadership”. One look at our governor, and former Lt governor should prove that to the deaf, dumb, and blind.. And, it gets worse from there on down the political food chain of depravity.

    Don’t get me wrong here. There are very good people in Minnesota, and connected to the Minnesota body politic. However, they are outnumbered by an extremely vicious and radical political machine.

    With one possible exception, our congressional representation in Minnesota is simply more of the same. …”garbage in, garbage out”.. I have met Keith Ellison on more than one occasion, and interviewed him face to face. He is a race baiting radical anarchist, a philandering hypocrite, a long time radical communist, a naked opportunist, and a seditious piece of human garbage.. In short, this is an evil adult child, posing as a US congressman.

    …Answer? Because this is Minnesota…and now, thanks to Keith and others, we are now, an extremely dangerous place in which to live – Minnesotastan.. People are now dying in Minnesota, and these people referenced above, including the man-child Ellison, and others, are responsible for that sad reality as well.

    You have my vote to the affirmative for a charge of treason.. I actually, believe, that if that charge could be presented to a Court, outside of Minnesota, that charge would stick.

    May God help us!

  3. The Red & Green alliance working unhindered in the post-Christian West. Even in the USA.

    It’s amazing to see. We’re so screwed.

    God help us.

    • And now Ellison has resigned from Congress and is running for Minnesota Attorney General. We must work hard to see that he is NOT elected.

    • WE ARE NOT SCREWED WE PATRIOTS WHO LOVE AMERICA MUST I REPEAT MUST BEAR ARMS AND ERADICATE THESE UNGODLY THEOLOGICAL KORAN LOVING & INFIDEL HATING FOREIGNERS OUT OF OUR COUNTRY …MY CONSTITUTIONS SAY ONE NATION UNDER GOD WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL OF USA . THIS SHARIA WAS BORN OF A LIE ..LETS TREAT IT AS A LIE AND EXPOSE THEM ALL ,

      • Rolf when Minnesotans are ready and really willing to bear arms I will be there just like all of the Patriots should be

        • Sad it is coming to this but I saw it take over in my little town and they slam dunked me. They will defend their Mosques once built stated in their a book, “ to the death. “ we aren’t playing and neither are they.

  4. God help us is correct. I fear we have allowed the enemy to gain to great a foothold.

    • Now maybe as parents we can be much more involved and aware’s of what isn’t being taught to our children. Amen and amen. I feel awful about what the people and their families are having to deal with now. May G-D bless them.

      • Please, do not confuse me with other Debbie’s. I suppose signing just my first name isn’t enough. I’ve had so much identity theft.

  5. Well, Duh?! Every effort should be made to get this article into the hands of AG Sessions or President Trump. I’ll email it but it should be an Action Alert since one email will not likely make it past the gatekeeper. Send the article to: comments@whitehouse.gov president@whitehouse.gov or, https://www.justice.gov/contact-us

    • I just sent two and requested that they both go to the President and Vice President. I can only pray now, thank you so much! Thank you.

  6. It’s almost ridiculous to suggest anyone be charged with treason, since those laws are being laughed at and seem to be unenforceable. If treason is no longer going to be a crime, it should be taken off the law books. Otherwise let’s take it seriously.

  7. Yes. Evidentially he has another agenda other than that of the United States

  8. I agree John, the reds have many names. But the nomenclature does not matter; the need to enforce egalitarian ends gives them all away. For true believers, egalitarian ends and PC is where we must progress; they oppose even the electorate – even democracy that opposes it. Democrats vote like a school of fish – unanimously in obstruction. They are all activist for egalitarian ends; it is visceral. It is a phenomena that has always been with us. And they have a perfect right to convince the electorate. It is where it crosses over to the realm of forcing PC with police or snooping devices against the law abiding who who disagree.

    There is strategic value in noting that and learning by communist/socialist regimes; however alas, we seem to forget history, allowing them to re-brand, refocus and pivot. There toward electorate pragmatism to maintain power. In spite of losing nations in shatters and under draconian totalitarianism, the red army Marches on. In a quest for PC and contemporary equality it has left a trail of misery and death. And each time, like a phoenix it rises re branded with a new name. Either capitalizing on crisis or attaching themselves as a political arm for popular movement (temperance, hippy greens, etc) Leftists, socialists, communists etc. are the same stone with a different face; all of them nod when it is proclaimed “You didn’t build that.”

    Until the miracle of Trump, I too was pessimistic. But Trump is a master of the press, an expert at asserting business friendly capitalism and conservative accomplishment. According to legend he was loaned a million; he says he turned that into 10 million, others estimate 4. But even at 4 that loan repaid itself 4000%! Watermelons,

  9. I say Ellison, Obama, Hillary, Huma Abedin, Nihad Awad, Jeh Johnson, Arif Alikhan, Ebooks Patel, Mohammed Elibiari, and each and every member of the Muslim Brotherhood, should be charged with high treason. Also, all the organizations that are fronts of the Muslim Brotherhood such as ISNA, CAIR, MSA, NAIT, etc, should be shut down as well as each and every mosque where Wahhabism is preached. Saudi financing of Islam in the US should be stopped immediately.

  10. Ellison should be investigated thoroughly. His associations with our enemies make him a terroristic threat to this country. Get him out of here!

  11. The simple answer is YES. Keith Ellison and every one of the Leftist politicians fomenting the seditious overthrow of duly elected President Donald Trump should be prosecuted. Jerry Brown, the California the King of Sedition should be prosecuted as well.

  12. I too would like to know why Ellison is in our government. I attribute to the fact that there are many Muslims in the state he represents i.e. Minnesota. Most came in under the Refugee Resettlement Prorgram, and from that program the secondary wave of their family members. It is time they were repatriated to their own lands other nations, such as Kenya have done so. It is time we in the USA did the same thing.

  13. Investigate, investigate and then indict. It has to start now or it will never happen. Why is it liberals continually get away with their crimes?

    You people are idiots who know nothing about Islam but the hate given to you by fox.

    • Thanks for the intellectual reply Mr. Strange. It is not hateful to speak truth about real threats to our families and our nation.

      Again, in case you missed it, UTT offers $1000 to anyone who can demonstrate that something we publish or present about sharia (foundation, authority in Islam, what it says) or the Jihadi Network (MB objectives, means, modus operandi, orgs) that is untrue.

      Put your money where your mouth is and prove us wrong.

      Otherwise, get educated and get on board to defend our nation.

    • Read the Koran and you will change your mind, unless you are a muslim.

  15. OPINION:

    Although both George W. Bush, who following the 9/11 attacks asserted to the world from inside a Washington DC mosque via a self-serving verbose demonstrable lie that Islam was a religion of “peace”, and Robert Mueller, the current Special Persecutor (and possible anarchist) who could have arguably prevented said pre-meditated homicidal onslaught which claimed 2777 innocent (mainly) American lives should have been arrested for treason in brazen violation of Article 3, section 3 of the Constitution.

    As for Keith Ellison, who wasn’t initially elected to Congress until 2007: since notwithstanding his federal oath to protect and defend the country against all enemies both foreign & domestic, plus Islam’s declaration of war* on the United States, dated 22 May 1991, he has demonstrably provided overt & covert support for sharia-adherent jihadists, the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR relentlessly ever since, were it not for the 1969 Supreme Court decision in “Brandenburg v. Ohio” (USSC 395-444) which overturned nearly all criminalization of political speech, including advocacy of the violent overthrow of the government unless such speech “is directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action” and is “likely to incite or produce such action”, he may (or may not) be indictable for either treason and/or Anarchism (under 18-USC 2385).

    Which may explain why the U.S. Bureau of Prisons doesn’t build a “Benedict Arnold” maximum security facility. I.e. great lawyers know the law, but the lawyers politicians use know the judge, particularly it seems, the ones in the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii.

    *To secure for a nominal postage & handling fee an actual Arabic-to-English verbatim translation of Islam’s declaration of war on the U.S., which was seized in 2004 from a subterranean basement in Annandale, Virginia by Special Agents of the FBI in compliance with a federal search warrant, contact: securefreedom.org and request: GOVERNMENT EXHIBIT 003-0085 3:04 CR-240-G U.S. v. HLF, et al.

  16. Why hasn’t he been arrested by now? Why haven’t any of those in Government that committed crimes gone to jail? They are not above the law, but yet our government officials on all levels do not send them to jail, do not remove their assets for repayment and they keep their retirement plans.

    • grandmother,

      Perhaps none of those to whom you referred have been arrested because it would require they first be indicted by a federal prosecutor who was honest enough to admit that they had in fact committed Treason, while being courageous to accept the intense political pressure that would undoubtedly be applied on them to drop the charges. Next, that prosecutor would also have to be prepared to face the likely threats against their life by those criminals indicted who were not willing to undergo the trial knowing they were in fact guilty, and so preferred to remove the possibility they might face the gallows by suggesting that it was in the best interest of the prosecutor to drop the charges.

      And as for why the lower level government criminals are not prosecuted under RICO statutes that would lead to the forfeiture of all their assets, along with prison time, perhaps it is for reasons similar to those stated above. Or perhaps there are no federal prosecutors who are themselves without offenses which would lead to their own convictions, thereby leading them to the same fate as those they convicted?

      It is in the end difficult to specifically state why one criminal would be reluctant to point out the crimes of another criminal, though it is reasonable to conclude that given the depths of corruption and depravity to which the majority of those living at the top of the food chain in what some call “Mordor on the Potomac” have devolved, it may truly be impossible to find an honest one who was actually worthy of the task of prosecuting those around them.

  18. Yes

  19. Don’t I recall that Keith Ellison was sworn in using a Koran instead of the Bible. Whoever gave that move legitimacy should have their head examined. This move screams volumes to me.

  20. Yes

    Yes!

    • Strange you certainly are also obnoxious and an idiot . I know some non terroristic muslims and have read the Koran it is all about killing everyone who doesnt accept Mohamad

  23. […] WASHINGTON, DC 1. As UTT reported at the end of last week, U.S. Congressman Keith Ellison publicly endorsed the terrorist group Antifa.  See the UTT article here. […]

    • Yes, to answer the question posed in the title. Charged, convicted and executed. I have issues with FDR, but had he been around during WWII, he would have already been executed.

  24. Muslims, by definition, are traitors if citizens, and foreigners who are not loyal to the U.S. if not citizens. Islam is opposed to the U.S. Constitution.

  25. About the Muslim congressman. Well the fact that he has association with Muslim terrorist organizations, accept the Koran,where in different part mentions us as infidels who should be killed,and on and on, yes, he is not supposed to be aCongressman,because for Muslims Sharia should prevail over the Constitution. One doesn’t have to be an expert in Islamic Studies. Only an ignorant or somebody who support Pellosi can’t see that.

  26. One of the news channels today had Elli speaking, right behind him stood a cross, so he must have been in a church…now that was a site, he should get a honorary degree of protecting his doctrine for the attempt of building a one way bridge to the illusion or better known as bait and switch to hook. Here fishy, fishy.

  27. Sharia is not compatible with the laws of the U.S, ……and they should also be restricted in banking and every other institiuton.
    That would be and is almost subversive . The cleverness will hopefully end with facts and a revamp and reintroduction to the stated enemy of the United States.When they have already declared it years ago but are here to take the reigns……a dvided house will fall…sharia would be a divide…it should be removed.

  28. Mr. Guandolo, please see FoxNews video of Trump year in review clip at 12:36p MARK. You will see a Female version of an ANTIFA Flag at the Women’s March Protest at the Capital Hill. Compare to the book in Keith Ellison’s hand. Isn’t Antifa declared a Terrorist Group?

  29. Mr. Guandolo , my understanding of Treason is giving aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war. I also understand that the muslim brotherhood has openly declared war on the USA in more than one instance, though without question in a document they wrote called The Plan which was found on a computer seized in a raid on a terrorist’s apartment in Europe, a fact that is well know in LEO circles. Therefore, Mr Ellison has clearly given aid and comfort to our enemy in time of war.

    Given these two facts, I can see no lawful reason why Keith Ellison should not be charged with Treason and tried in court based on this and on any other that may be found through the discovery process. If America is going to be a nation of laws, we MUST prosecute ANYONE who violates our laws no matter who they are or what position they hold in our society. In my view, it is especially important to prosecute those who hold positions of power, for they must be held to the highest standards and never be allowed to use their influence or position to avoid prosecution.

    The real question is not whether he committed Treason, for it is undeniable that he did. The question is who in the government has the integrity and courage to press charges?

    • Congressman Ellison is not the only member of Congress who should be charged with Treason, nor are these the only officials in our government guilty of Treason. If gov’t officials guilty of treason are not convicted and executed per the law of these United States, our enemies will not see the conviction Americans have to be victorious in this war.

  30. Representative Keith Ellison should be charged with TREASON

    • Is this really real not something I had the chills about over 40 yrs ago when I was in college reading about the blk panthers, weathermen, brown shirt’s I heard about as a kid. Now antifa.My uncle Jack was a pilot, bomber,gunner in WW1. I don’t want him to have died for nothing. My daughter doesn’t believe me not many ppl do. What do???

    • There is enough evidence for both ellison and nihad NIMROD to be convicted of treason and hung by thier HEELS!!!

    • Most certainly yes.. Also along with the two congress women Omar and whats her name. All elected officials should only be allowed to swear in on our Bible as well as the U.S. constitution or be ousted and tried for treason. We all need to wake up. Thank you so much John. You are a HERO.

    KEITH ELLISON IS 2ND IN COMMAND @ THE DNC !
    THEREFORE, ACTUAL CHRISTIANS & JEWS (LOYAL TO THE PROTECTION OF ISRAEL)
    NO LONGER HAVE A VALID EXCUSE TO VOTE DEMOCRAT …
    EVER AGAIN !

  32. In a nut shell “YES”. Ellison is more loyal to Islam than the Constitution, his actions, dealings and acceptance of Islamic gifts far exceeds the basic $50.00 alloted by Congress. His trip to Mecca paid for $25K, his daughters acceptance to an Islamic school : immediate entry, all the conferences attended and last but not least is this: what information has he shared with these Islamic groups like CAIR?

  33. They are all pieces of wet, stinking, never to dry dog shit, and haven’t the mental agility to wash the heathen left mindset away, and confess to lawless practices ~ and be hanged by the neck until DEAD~ or at least till they stop stinking ~ filthy anti-American dog dung.

  34. Opps the news station I watch seems to be headlong driving the announcement and pile on criticism of Pres. Trump’ that he has not condemned the military leader Prince…..after the CIA claiming that the Prince was not unaware of the attack on Khoshoggi…brilliant timing..by the left and a thinly disguised broadcaster over 60 (Hint hint) seems to be reannouncing his criticism for all to hear. Funny thing also how the CIA makes an announcement put can’t put together a “motive” for the many terror attacks by a jihadist even when they say it to the investigators so if the media save their financial situation by remaining silent (remember who owns approx 30% of media station) hmm a little hypocritical in my opinion.
    If the media knew sharia law, the unlawful are those who speak facts that would bring a bad light to Islam. Khoshoggi would know this, the media may not have known he was still a muslim who criticized and he broke sharia law. An ex muslim would never go back to a muslim country it would be dangerous. The news about this doctrine should never be silenced but it has been the policy all through the decades. I may not be happy either with a statement but it has been ignored and should be considered in all decisions …we are in a situation that has grown out of control. So I find it a curious situation. I still support President Trump hopefully this situation spurred more interest in learning more about sharia and deception.

  35. Sorry got off subject, the blog about Keith Ellison supporting Antifa is also supported by many who know what the resistance amounts to disruptions and protests and antifa is useful organization that supports the goals to fundamentally change America and bring Sharia law even if some of antifa are unaware since they are unaware of the methods of antifa….maybe they should watch Dr Zhivago.. 1917 Russian revolution protests ..what seems to starts out to be moral turns ugly sometimes very soon. Disruptions and destruction do not work well.

  36. Abslutely. keith ellison should be charged with treason. I don’t need to take up a full page to say that.
