    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio may be testing the waters for a 2020 presidential bid. The recently reelected mayor is making a stop in Iowa on Dec. 19 for a fundraiser at the Temple of Performing Arts in Des Moines. According to the Des Moines Register, the fundraising event is for Progress Iowa's "holiday party." De Blasio's statement on the event sounds like a statement that a politician would give if they were laying the groundwork for a future campaign. De Blasio is quoted as saying:

    The Wall Street Journal reports that Mueller’s team issued the subpoena in mid-October, requesting documents and emails from over a dozen top campaign officials that include several keywords related to Russia. A source familiar with the matter told the Journal that the subpoena would not compel testimony before a grand jury, but that Trump’s campaign was surprised by the order after voluntarily cooperating with previous requests from Mueller’s team.

    Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) interim chair Donna Brazile levied sexism allegations against top male staffers on the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign in a newly obtained excerpt of her upcoming book, in which she claims to have responded to their behavior by challenging the men to expose their genitals. “Gentlemen, let’s just put our dicks out on the table and see who’s got the bigger one, because I know mine is bigger than all of yours,” Brazile writes in the sixth chapter of her tell all book “Hacks,” obtained by the Huffington Post.
  • Reports Prove the Ralph Northam Campaign Coordinated with Latino Victory Fund on ‘Sickening’ Ad

    New campaign finance reports reveal that Virginia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam’s campaign coordinated with the Latino Victory Fund (LVF) on the LVF’s “sickening” ad, which even the Washington Post called “vile.” The Latino Victory Fund ran an ad that featured an Ed Gillespie supporter attempting to run down minority children. The Gillespie campaign decried this ad as “disgusting” and an “attack on the people of Virginia.” A report from the Washington Post suggested that the LVF allegedly created their controversial ad to spur minority support for Virginia Democrat Ralph Northam due to private polling that reveals low support for...

    Fox News ^ | October 24 2017 | Joe Schoffstall , Washington Free Beacon
    A number of longtime aides to failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton are still being paid from her campaign committee nearly one year after her defeat, Federal Election Commission filings show. The aides—who have remained close to Clinton, some working with her as a private citizen—have through the end of the third quarter collected thousands of dollars in payments from Hillary for America, Clinton's presidential campaign committee, the most recent filings show. Huma Abedin, Clinton's longtime friend and aide who acted as vice chair of the campaign, has been paid nearly $65,000 between mid-November to the end of June. From...

    **SNIP** One Virginia political observer I spoke with earlier said this innocent explanation could well be accurate, but other theories abound, such as speculation that the Democrats deliberately excluded a black man from certain mailers in order to target voters in various regions of the state. I'm not sure I buy that -- especially since the altered flyers were distributed in moderate Northern Virginia -- but like Erickson, I am quite confident that the outrage brigades would be in full throat if Ed Gillespie's campaign had done something similar. Speaking of Gillespie, here's the second intriguing nugget out of that...

    Gov. Larry Hogan never met a highway project he didn’t like. He’s a 1950s type of politician – solve all the state’s transportation gridlock and congestion by paving the countryside with lanes of new concrete.He’s got a $9 billion plan that is a lollapalooza: Let construction giants build and pay for toll lanes on the Capital Beltway and the busy I-270 corridor from the beltway to Frederick – 70 miles of exclusive Lexus lanes – and let those companies reap the toll rewards so they can recoup a staggering $7.6 billion investment (the actual cost is likely to be substantially...
  • Gorka joins pro-Trump campaign group as ‘chief strategist’

    09/19/2017 6:56:59 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 18 replies
    LONDON — Sebastian Gorka, a former adviser to US President Donald Trump who quit after top White House political strategist Steve Bannon was ousted, has joined a nationalist pro-Trump campaign organization, the group announced on Tuesday. The MAGA Coalition, dedicated to helping advance Trump’s “America First” principles, said it had hired Gorka as “Chief Strategist.” MAGA is headed by Adam Gingrich, a Pennsylvania political operative who backed Trump’s presidential campaign. A MAGA statement announcing Gorka’s appointment said its mission was to “identify the obstructionists in (Washington) DC and to advocate the America First principles that catapulted Donald Trump to the...

    Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that she would have been called a "genius" and her campaign "perfect" if she had won the 2016 presidential election.   In an interview with WNYC, the former secretary of State reflected on being the first female presidential nominee of a major political party. She said that because of the hurdles women face, she would have been hailed as brilliant if she won.

    During his Sunday night interview with Charlie Rose on 60 Minutes, former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon finally said out loud what many of us already knew: that Hillary Clinton is “not very bright.” This was actually my favorite part of the interview because nothing is healthier for our culture than the truth, most especially a truth no one dares to speak out loud. For 25 years, Madam Clinton has been in the public eye, and for 25 years we have been told time and again and again and again two whoppers: 1) Hillary is brilliant. 2) When you...

    Hillary Clinton said her “skin crawled” as Donald Trump loomed behind her at a presidential debate in St. Louis, and added that she wished she could have pressed pause and asked America, “Well, what would you do?” The words, Clinton’s most detailed public comments about what happened during one of the campaign’s more memorable moments, are included in her new book, “What Happened,” which she called an attempt to “pull back the curtain” on her losing bid for the presidency. Some of the moments during the campaign, she said, “baffled” her. Others seemingly repulsed her: In recounting the October incident, she...
  • DONALD TRUMP, PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: I would stay in Afghanistan

    Now for the top story tonight. Donald Trump giving a big foreign policy address yesterday in Washington. He joins us now from Evansville, Indiana. First of all, you did not mention Afghanistan in the address. We have got about 10,000 troops there right now. The place is still in chaos after 13 years. What exactly will you do about Afghanistan? DONALD TRUMP (R), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: I would stay in Afghanistan. It's probably the one place we should have gone in the Middle East because it's adjacent and right next to Pakistan which has nuclear weapons. So I think you have...

    This has all gone too far, and it is abusive to anyone with a brain to continue on with this narrative. I just read an article stating the Fusion GPS co-founder will not testify to Senate Intelligence Committee. Why not? Could it be, because it is the dossier that Comey and the rest of the Trump haters have actually used during their campaign to oust Trump? Could it also have anything to do with the following? Christopher Steele the employee who put the dossier together has gone underground. A man involved with Steele at that time was found dead in...

    Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign team was quick to denounce President Trump's Tuesday firing of FBI Director James Comey. Campaign manager Robby Mook said the move "terrifies" him. Twilight zone. I was as disappointed and frustrated as anyone at how the email investigation was handled. But this terrifies me. — Robby Mook (@RobbyMook) May 9, 2017 [Snip] Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), Clinton's running mate, echoed those sentiments.

    'Takes a lot of work to lose to Donald Trump' Earlier, Dan shared the video of Hillary Clinton accepting “complete responsibility” for her embarrassing 2016 loss. Then, as Hillary always does, she turned around and blamed everyone and everything else. Her version of taking responsibility means paying lip service to her failures, before dredging up scapegoats like FBI Director James Comey, Wikileaks, Russia, misogyny, and fake news. Even as she does a perfunctory mea culpa, she’s playing the victim card. She just can’t help herself.
