  • Emails: Kyrsten Sinema summoned witches to her anti-war rally

    Washington Examiner ^ | October 15, 2018 | Philip Wegmann
    Politicians talk about "witch hunts" so often that the occult has almost become cliche in American politics. But in Arizona, there's at least one candidate on the ballot who takes sorcery very seriously. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate, is not a witch. But she has been known to hang out with witches. It was during the height of the Iraq War when Sinema, then a far-left protest organizer, summoned supernatural help to stop the Iraq War. Emails obtained by the Washington Examiner show Sinema inviting a prominent coven of feminist witches in Arizona called Pagan Cluster...

But that’s where the good news for Wilson ends, as the poll shows her opponent Mitt Romney winning among men, women, all age groups, Republicans and unaffiliated voters, for an overall lead of 59 percent to Wilson’s 23 percent

    Beto O’Rourke, the Senate candidate so cool that he rode a skateboard on stage at his rally Saturday in Corpus Christi, is looking more and more like John Ossoff 2.0. Hollywood’s favorite Texan is still down by about 9 points against incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz, where he’s been hovering for a while. And now it looks like Democrats are having second thoughts about burning all their campaign money in one place.

Where was that attitude when they were predicting Trump to lose in 2016? 28,607 CALLS on this poll. 593 responses. Marsha Blackburn, the Republican candidate, leads our poll.

    Washington Examiner ^ | October 13, 2018 | Paul Bedard
    This week’s White House Report Card finds President Trump still riding high after the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and buoyed by reports that Democrats have not locked down control of the House. Democratic pollster John Zogby, who gave the president a B+ in this week’s report card, said that it is “nearly impossible” for the Democrats to win the Senate. And worse, he said that winning the House remains “elusive” despite predictions that a “blue wave” will give the Democrats a nice majority cushion.
  • Kyrsten Sinema in 2002: It'd be 'inappropriate' to condemn destruction of property by anarchists

    Washington Times ^ | October 12, 2018 | Philip Wegmann
    A decade before she took an oath to defend and uphold the Constitution, Rep. Krysten Sinema was palling around with anarchists. And while the Arizona Democrat certainly condemns violence now, as a far-left activist, Sinema refused to condemn anarchist destruction of property. Emails from June 2002 and obtained by the Washington Examiner give insight into Sinema's work as a community organizer for the Arizona Alliance for Peaceful Justice. The group, she wrote at the time, “opposed the use of violence and weapons in all situations” and “believes in world disarmament.” For all those high-minded ideals though, Sinema wasn’t ready to...

    Red Wave: Despite reports and questionable polling that indicates the House may go back to the Democrats — we don’t believe them, mind you — Republican leaders see opportunities to pick up Senate seats and are now going on the offense in key races the party believes it can win. Fox News reports that with less than one month before the November midterms, several Senate races are trending away from Democrats and toward the GOP, reinvigorating the party and convincing Republican leaders they can expand their slim majority in the upper chamber.

    The Senate confirmed 15 of President Trump’s judicial picks Thursday night after GOP leaders reached a deal with Democrats, clearing about a third of the backlog and closing up shop through Election Day to give senators a chance to campaign. Three of the judges are for the powerful circuit courts of appeals, while the other 12 were for district court positions.

    KSAZ ^ | October 11, 2018 | Bob Christie, Associated Press
    Republican activists on Thursday released a video of Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, a centrist Democrat now running for an open Arizona U.S. Senate seat, advising liberal activists how to "stop your state from becoming like Arizona." The surreptitious recording dates from 2011, after Arizona Republicans had passed SB1070, a controversial immigration law that led to nationwide boycotts and concern even among some Arizona Republicans that the Legislature had moved too far right. Those concerns led to a recall against the then-senate president Russell Pearce, whom Sinema blamed in her remarks for much of the discord. But the talk also contains unusually...
  • Senate confirms 15 more judges, wrapping up a GOP priority

    Associated Press ^ | Oct. 11, 2018 8:33 PM EDT | Lisa Mascaro and Alan Fram
    The Senate confirmed 15 more judges late Thursday, all but wrapping up its pre-election work on a top Republican priority days after Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. Clearing the judicial nominees provided a signature walk-off for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who has focused on reshaping the judiciary with more conservative judges. Once final action was finished later Thursday evening, senators were not expected back to session full-time until after the November election. While many of the judges were approved with bipartisan support, almost half were confirmed on mostly party-line votes. Democratic opponents and their allies swiftly objected...

    The Hlll ^ | 10/11/18 | JORDAIN CARNEY
    Progressive outside groups immediately panned a deal Thursday on President Trump's judicial nominations, which is paving the way for the Senate to leave town until after the November election. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announced a deal on 15 nominations—marking one of the Senate's final items on its to-do list before a weeks-long recess. But progressives immediately argued the agreement was too soon after Democrats lost their uphill bid to block Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination. Chris Kang, the counsel for Demand Justice, blasted Democrats as "passive" and warned that progressives were "not going to tolerate this kind of...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) have struck a deal to vote on a package of 15 judges and recess the Senate until the Nov. 6 election. All of the nominees, including three circuit court nominees, are expected to pass despite opposition from liberal groups that fought an all-out-battle to block Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh earlier this month. The development is welcome news for vulnerable incumbents in tough races eager to get back home to campaign. The Senate had been scheduled to be in session until Oct. 26. Now most lawmakers likely won’t...

Brown's extreme views on Republicans were showcased this summer by the Free Beacon, which identified numerous inflammatory posts on social media. In one post Brown wrote, for example, "F**k reaching out to Trump voters, The idiots aren't listening."
