Joel Demos Wins Ten Buck Friday Poll: Demos Challenges Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison

Joel Demos is running for the U.S. House seat for Minnesota's 5th Congressional District. In my opinion, this is one of the most important races in country. Demos is challenging incumbent Muslim congressman, Keith Ellison (D-Minn-5th). See a video below.

Joel is especially concerned about rising taxes and the "engine" of small business owners. He wants health care reform, but wants an affordable program that does not decrease the quality of care for Americans. He is a fiscal conservative with a background in the financial sector in banking, lending and real estate. Read more about Joel on The Issues here.


The incumbent, Keith Ellison, on the other hand, is a "far-left" Progressive, and keeping with the Democrat mantra, has never met an entitlement he didn't like. He voted with Democrats 96.9 percent of the time. 

Demos has a mountain to climb in this race, as Ellison received almost 71 percent of the vote in the 2008 election. Ellison is the first Muslim elected to Congress, followed by Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN-7th).

Ellison converted to Islam at age 19. He is supported by Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam, and has close associations to the Counsel on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim-American Society (MSA), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Muslim Brotherhood and the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). Read details of these Islamic connections here

Ellison also writes under the alias "Keith Hakim." He evaded paying income taxes for five years - had liens placed on his property and eventually paid $25,000 to settle the tax evasion. He failed to pay parking tickets and moving violations and had his driver's license suspended "multiple" times. Still yet, he won a seat in the People's House.  Read about Ellison at DiscoverTheNetworks.


Joe Demos has received the important endorsement of conservative Governor Tim Pawlenty's Freedom First Political Action Committee and the GOP.

Demos is married to Jenny, and they have two small children. His parents were American missionaries. His grandmother was the Mayor of Roseville, Minnesota for ten years. His grandfather served in the Korean War and World War II.

Ellison filed for a legal separation from wife, Kim Dore Ellision, with whom he has four children after 20 years of marriage. Mrs. Ellison is not Muslim, the four children are. Mrs. Ellison reportedly suffers from Multiple Sclerosis.

As I said, this is an important race. Keith Ellison has traveled to Saudi Arabia for the Hajj with a trip paid for by the Muslim Brotherhood. There is nothing about Islam that is Democratic or appreciative of a people's Republic.

Be comforted that a donation to Joel Demos will be an important step in removing Keith Ellison from Congress. Demos is a worthy conservative candidate, but he cannot do it without financing. Remember things have changed: "politics" are no longer local. Every Democrat vote across the country affects you in Des Moines, your sister in Dallas or my family in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
