  • Hillary Clinton is still making Democrats pay for 2016

    NY Post ^ | 5/18/18
    Hillary Clinton headlined her first post-2016 fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee this week, which should help the DNC pay its bills to . . . her. Clinton, you see, is insisting the Democratic Party pay her group, Onward Together, $1.65 million for access to the Hillary for America email list, voter data and software from the 2016 campaign. And that, The Intercept reports, is on top of the more than $700,000 the DNC has already paid to rent the list. Indeed, the Republican National Committee notes (meow!) that Clinton only did this first fundraiser after the DNC stopped its payments to...

    Democrat Abdul al-Sayed, Michigans first-ever Muslim candidate for governor, may face an uphill struggle in in this years election. Political analysts suspect that his campaign slogan: You may not hate Muslims, but Muslims definitely hate you! may be too negative to win a majority of votes. Granted, Michigan has the highest percentage of Muslim voters in the country, said Democratic Party pollster Vern Spielman, but even if they go 100% for Sayed I dont think that overcomes the odds that the 97% of voters who are not Muslims will vote for someone less hostile toward them. Sayed called objections to...

    Anyone expecting President Trump supporters to soften up on their allegiance to the president heading into the November midterm elections is sadly mistaken. This past week, Democrats, the FBI and the liberal elite media gave Team Trump strong reasons to remain solidly behind the Republican commander in chief and his drain the swamp cause. One can also argue that women voters and independents are getting tired of the incessant Trump bashing especially when the president and his supposedly short-staffed administration (excluding the traitorous leakers) are piling up significant victories in domestic and foreign affairs, i.e., tax reform, employment gains,...

    Hackers reportedly streamed a gay pornography video during an online House race debate for Californias 1st District Congressional seat. The organization Independent Like the North State presented the forum, which was open to the seven candidates vying for incumbent Doug LaMalfas seat. Only two candidates, Lewis Elbinger, Green Party candidate from Mount Shasta, and David Peterson, Democrat from Grass Valley, were present, reports KRCRTV. The debate, which was hacked with video of two men engaged in sexual acts shortly after 8:00 pm PST on Thursday, was streamed both online and broadcasted on radio station KFOI 90.9 FM. Amid the hack,...

    The federal court case against Imran Awan, the former IT aide to congressional Democrats, has been hit with repeated delays over the last six months -- a situation fueled by allegations in the media that, according to his attorney, have piqued the curiosity of prosecutors. **SNIP** A grand jury in August returned an indictment in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia charging Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, with a total of four counts, which included federal bank fraud and conspiracy. Awan has pleaded not guilty to all charges. The facts of the case on paper are...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Saturday said Republican lawmakers efforts to uncover the identity of an FBI informant in order to obstruct special counsel Robert Muellers investigation comes close to "crossing a legal line." Schumer was tweeting his support of a statement from the Senate Intelligence Committee's top Democrat, Mark Warner (Va.), who warned Republican lawmakers against exposing the identity of the informant who gave investigators information about possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Warner said in a separate Twitter thread on Friday, "It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members...

    This week President Trump again described members of the heinous immigrant gang MS-13 as "animals." His remarks came in response to a complaint that California law forbids local law enforcement officers from notifying ICE that MS-13 gang members are in custody in county jailsresulting in their release back into the community instead of their deportation. Two high-ranking Democrats assailed Trump's remarks. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer characterized the President's words as "a slander against the kind of people who make our country great. Let's not forget that we are a nation of immigrants. If it weren't for the daring and...

    Vulnerable senators up for reelection have adopted a strategy of silence in response to the presidents avalanche of putdowns. Jon Tester was on his farm in rural Montana when his phone rang with the news: It was his chief of staff, informing him that the president of the United States had just called for his resignation on Twitter. The Montana Democrat briefly considered President Donald Trumps latest attack on him, then fired up his tractor and went on his way. Tester wasnt going to get into it with Trump over the senators role in bringing down the presidents Veterans Affairs...

    From your favorite random Twitter accounts to the talking heads on cable news networks, we all hear the same thing: Democrats dont have a real message. What do Democrats stand for? They cant just be anti-Trump! Well, no, they cant just be anti-Trump but its a damn good start. Democrats have a message that resonates with most Americans. Affordable healthcare and college, better public education, making the wealthy pay their share, helping elevate women, people of color, and the LGBT+ community, protecting the social safety net, prison reform, drug reform, immigration reform, and stricter gun control laws are all...

    The Salt Lake Tribune ^ | May 7, 2018 | Jennifer Rubin, The Washington Post
    Democratic leaders are right to caution their members and candidates against talking up impeachment. There is the obvious political consideration that impeachment is disfavored, at least now, by many voters, especially those in red states where Democrats need to hang on to precious Senate seats. But there is something more important, both for the party fighting against the erosion of democratic norms and for the country: We cannot normalize impeachment. Rep. Adam Schiff of California, ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, writes that it is clear that if President (Donald) Trump participated in a conspiracy to defraud the United...

    The Sacremento Bee ^ | May 17, 2018 | Paul Waldman, The Washington Post
    In the endless search for the magic key that Democrats can use to unlock the hearts of white people who vote Republican, the hot new candidate is respect. If only they cast off their snooty liberal elitism and show respect to people who voted for Donald Trump, Democrats can win them over and take back Congress and the White House. The assumption is that if Democrats simply choose to deploy this powerful tool of respect, then minds will be changed and votes will follow. This belief, widespread though it may be, is stunningly naive. It ignores decades of history and...

    Democrats had been counting on victories in at least half a dozen California congressional districts to bring them closer to the 24 needed to take control of the U.S. House of Representatives. Republicans only hold 14 seats in the Golden State, and Hillary Clinton won many of those districts in the 2016 election. But a combination of factors including an excess of Democratic contenders, and a surge in Republican enthusiasm could thwart those plans. California has a unique primary system called the top two or jungle primary, under which every voter can vote for any candidates, and the...

    If the media and liberals want to defend MS-13, theyre more than welcome to, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters during Thursdays briefing after media attempts to frame President Trumps comments from the previous day as insulting to some immigrants. I dont think the term that the president used was strong enough, she said. One reporter had asked Sanders about the presidents use of the word animals to describe members of the vicious MS-13 transnational gang but, instead, framed the question by saying Trump used the term to describe some immigrants. Sanders sharply corrected him by saying, The...

    This is an update on the civil war between The Crazy Democrats and The Insane Democrats. Until now we had seen primaries by Crazies rattle The Insanes but do little actual damage to Their imaginary Blue Wave. That changed on Tuesday. Nebraska Crazy Democrats nominated a Crazy and knocked out the DNC handpicked Insane candidate. While the Insane candidate is also an enemy of the NRA and Second Amendment; thats not good enough for the Crazies. They want candidates who will stand up and scream their hatred for the NRA and their intention to repeal the Second Amendment. That race...

    The incessant smear campaigns by the progressive socialists must stop. It is apparent that this is the weapon of choice among the leftists who inhabit the Deep State and the media. The fact that they act the way they do, venturing well outside the rule of law or even basic decency is nothing more than the fact that they feel morally superior and indispensable. The morality of the past and the affirmation that people can disagree civilly is now gone. Any deviation from moving forward to make the world as they want it must be destroyed and any means are...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi defended violent MS-13 gang members in a press conference Thursday, saying they are not animals, a term President Trump dubbed MS-13 members earlier this week. Pelosi first alluded to God, saying, Some of us who are attracted to the political arena, to government and public service believe that we are all Gods children and there is a spark of divinity among every person on earth, and we all have to recognize that as we respect the dignity and worth of every person. So when the president of the United States says about undocumented immigrants, These...

    For the very first time since April of last year, when Real Clear Politics first started monitoring averages, the Democrat advantage in the generic ballot has dipped below 5 percent. As of right now, the trend is with the GOP and President Trump has only started to make his case to turn out his base in November. Moreover, Democrats have no issue to run on no ideas, unless you count Russia! Russia! Russia! Impeach! Impeach! Impeach! Stormy! Stormy! Stormy! As Trump begins to remind voters that a House takeover by Democrats will almost certainly result in a futile and...

    Eager to move a message that focuses on things like minimum wage hikes and health care premiums, [Democrats] have been overtaken by a steady stream of stories of Russian meddling, porn star payoffs, and shady Trump-world figures. Ultimately, many offices and aides have come to the conclusion that they should simply give up on trying to break through on cable news at all. Its impossible, said one Senate aide, unless you want to talk about Russia. [N]umerous other aides echoed this point, sharing stories of fruitless calls and emails to bookers and abrupt cancellations on pre-existing bookings. Jessica Post,...
