  • Democrat New Jersey Senator Cory Booker Accused Of Sexually Assaulting A Man

    OANN ^ | 21 Oct 2018
    Democrat New Jersey Senator Cory Booker is now being accused of sexual assault by a man. On Saturday, an anonymous man released a detailed four page document on Twitter, claiming the incident happened when Booker visited his workplace back in 2014. He claims Booker followed him to the bathroom, touched him inappropriately, and approached him for oral sex. The man says he reached out to two lawyers earlier this month disclosing his name, date, location, corroborating evidence, and two possible hearsay witnesses. The reported victim also said watching Booker’s defense of alleged sexual assault victims was “laughably ironic, jarringly cringe-worthy,...
  • De Blasio used tax money to push national agenda: emails

    NY Post ^ | October 19, 2018 | Yoav Gonen and Bruce Golding
    Mayor Bill de Blasio used taxpayer resources to push his national political agenda — at one point even asking his staff to come up with a governmental excuse to justify a political trip to Washington, DC, emails show. In September 2015, Hizzoner was trying to build a coalition of labor and elected officials to support his Progressive Agenda — spending many hours each week peddling his income inequality platform to potential officials.

    Republicans raged Saturday at the expanding number of top New York Democrats who are giving their challengers the silent treatment rather than debate them. So far, Gov. Cuomo, and two top Dems — Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and attorney general candidate Letitia James — are ducking debates with their darkhorse opponents.

    National Review ^ | 10/20/2018 | By DAN MCLAUGHLIN
    In my previous column, I walked through how the polls are breaking in this year’s Senate races. To do that, I looked not only at the margin by which candidates lead in the poll averages, but also at the dwindling number of undecided voters. I also noted a problem: Compared with years past, we have remarkably little current public polling in a lot of important races. The governors’ races are worse. Many of these are crucial races, yet outside of the Texas governor’s race, there is not a single governor’s race in the country that has been polled more...

    President Trump warned people found guilty of voter fraud would face “maximum penalties” ahead of November’s midterm elections. “All levels of government and Law Enforcement are watching carefully for VOTER FRAUD, including during EARLY VOTING. Cheat at your own peril. Violators will be subject to maximum penalties, both civil and criminal!” the president tweeted Saturday night. Trump has long maintained that voter fraud is a significant issue, while experts have proven that it does not occur on a large scale. “In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions...

    I remember in 2016, I focused on NC and FL. I poured over the statistics that I could find, And while the democrats (and my own liberal Aunt) were gleeful with their biased state polls (polls commissioned and conducted by liberals and then labeled unbiased) I told my Aunt a few weeks before the election that Trump was going to win both FL and NC based on ACTUAL voting statistics that were being reported on early voting. From what I can see, I've been watching FL, NC, AND TN mainly because I haven't seen much info on other states and...

    A woman arrested on voter fraud charges just two weeks ago was arrested again Friday afternoon on new charges. Modesta Vela, 60, was arrested Friday afternoon at the nonprofit food pantry in Roma, confirmed Brenda Lee, spokesperson for the Starr County Special Crimes Unit. SCU investigators served Vela with four arrest warrants related to voter fraud, Lee said, which 229th District Attorney Omar Escobar clarified were for charges of tampering with a government record. Escobar said those records, in this case, referred to voter registration applications. A bond of $15,000 was set for each count. The arrest was a result...

    US Representative Joe Crowley, who just two weeks ago lost the Democratic Party nomination for New York’s 14th Congressional district to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in dramatic fashion, looks set to remain on the November ballot as the candidate for the Working Families Party. Oops. **SNIP** New York’s election laws do not allow the WFP to remove Crowley from its ballot line. Nor is Crowley allowed to simply remove himself. The only option is for Crowley to somehow make himself ineligible. Or die. Crowley (somewhat understandably) is reluctant to do this. Having achieved the most dramatic primary win of the season and...

    From the occasionally used cortex department: Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said on Friday at a campaign event that the United States’ blueprint for beating global warming needs to be the same as the blueprint the U.S. used for defeating Nazi Germany in the 1940s. “So we talk about existential threats, the last time we had a really major existential threat to this country was around World War II,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And so we’ve been here before and we have a blueprint of doing this before.” “None of these things are new ideas,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “What we had was an existential...

    At least 77,000 people have signed up for President Trump’s Houston rally on Monday to support incumbent Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, who is locked in the Texas Senate battle with Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke. The Houston Chronicle reported that Houston police will be “fully mobilized” for the rally. Attendees must have tickets to enter and will be admitted in the order that they line up, the report said. "Keep in mind that once the capacity is met, you won't get in whether you have a ticket or not," an officer said. More than 77,800 people had signed up for the...

    The Breitbart News best guess estimate 18 days before the election is that there are a range of outcomes in which either party ends up with a majority in the House. In the best outcome for the Republicans, they win 14 of these remaining 20 toss-up races, and emerge with a narrow five vote margin over the Democrats when the 116th Congress convenes in January, 220 Republicans to 215 Democrats. In the best outcome for the Democrats, they run the table in these 20 “toss-up” races and end up with a 23 vote majority in the 116th Congress, 229 Democrats...

    Could Republicans do the unthinkable on November 6th and keep a majority in the House? Politico’s Rachel Bade calls it “unlikely,” but not impossible. Bade hears from Republicans and “even a few Democrats” that the political winds have shifted enough this month that it might result in a slight GOP majority once all the votes have been counted. ....Just about every poll predicts it won’t happen: Suburban voters are too fed up with Donald Trump, and Democrats too awash in cash, for Nancy Pelosi’s party not to seize the House on Nov. 6. And yet House Republicans — and privately,...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist congressional candidate who has spent weeks campaigning with fellow socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, on Thursday refused to endorse his prospective candidacy in the 2020 presidential race. Ocasio-Cortez, 29, worked as an organizer for Sanders' failed presidential campaign in 2016 before winning in a surprise upset over longtime establishment Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., in the state's 14th Congressional District primary in May. "She’ll see what the field looks like," Corbin Trent, Ocasio-Cortez’s communications director, said in an interview with Politico. "She’s focused on 2018, [Bernie’s] focused on 2018. We’re all focused on 2018."

    Tomahawk Liz is not a Cherokee. It’s only something that everyone who wasn’t a blind and stupid liberal had known for years. She’s just a white woman appropriating Native American culture for personal gain. She took a DNA test, which showed that she’s a whopping 1/1024th Native American. In other words, she’s not an American Indian, despite her shoddy family story about high cheekbones. She’s a fake who peddled a racial hoax, something that’s been hanging around her neck since 2012. Fordham pushed that Warren was the institution’s first woman of color.   Harvard also said Warren was a Native American.
