  • Investigation Underway Into Alleged Failed Hack By Democratic Party of Georgia

    11/04/2018 10:53:48 AM PST · by bitt · 13 replies ^ | 11/4/2018
    ATLANTA – After an alleged failed attempt to hack the state’s voter registration system, the Secretary of State’s office opened an investigation into the Democratic Party of Georgia on the evening of Saturday, November 3, 2018. Federal partners, including the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Bureau of Investigation, were immediately alerted. Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp (R), who is running for governor, made the announcement two days before the midterm elections in which he is running against Democrat Stacey Abrams. “While we cannot comment on the specifics of an ongoing investigation, I can confirm that the Democratic Party...

    The media and other Democrats are saying that Trump and Republicans have divided the country and encourage hate. They also say Trump and Republicans are using fear to encourage their base to vote. It is clear the media is mixed up because the country has been divided long before Trump and the Democrats have always injected fear into elections. They must have amnesia. [snip] Democrats ran ads showing Paul Ryan pushing Grandma off a cliff for daring to oppose Obamacare. Democrats ran an ad showing a truck dragging black men by chains because Bush dared be for the death penalty...
  • Michael Avenatti to Time: 2020 Democratic nominee 'better be a white male'

    Michael Avenatti said the Democratic Party's choice to take on President Donald Trump in 2020 should be a white man, according to an interview with Time magazine published Thursday. "I think it better be a white male," Avenatti, a 2020 potential candidate himself, said. Avenatti said in the piece that he wished it was not the case that white men, as he and Trump are, are listened to more than people of other races and genders, but that he believed his identity was part of why he had been able to defend adult film star Stormy Daniels and immigrant mothers....
  • The President Behind the U.S. Supreme Court’s Worst Decision

    As a work of presidential prose, James Buchanan’s inaugural address on March 4, 1857, is widely considered one of the most forgettable ever given by an American leader. As The New York Times put it dryly at the time: “Little if any impression has been made by the inaugural.” Still, it would not take long for Buchanan’s unimpressive inauguration to become one of the most significant in history. For one thing, it was the first to be photographed. It was also the first inaugural given after the creation of the Republican Party, the last before secession and ultimately the last...

    The way I see it, the Democrat political party is made up of Socialists, sexual perverts, druggies, criminals, Muslims and clueless people who would circumvent our laws and try to destroy our Christian nation – some just to have their fifteen minutes of supposed fame by burning and defecating on the American flag – in public. Democrats are so determined to destroy the current administration that they will say or do anything to do so. Things have gotten so out of hand that Democrats will even disrupt Senator Cruz’s meal at a restaurant or issue death threats against political opponents...

    As the fight to confirm Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court continues, it is imperative to remember exactly who is trying to destroy him and our system. The so-called establishment elite, left-wing groups who hate this country and our system, Hollywood hypocrites, Republican Never Trumpers and, of course, the Democratic Party having been taken over not just by ignorant socialists, but run by adults who know what they’re doing is wrong and just don’t care. For generations, liberals have been pointing fingers at conservatives accusing them of whatever awful social crime suits their purpose. Remember — Hollywood...
  • Can a lesbian feminist ever win the presidency in the future?

    Serious question here. We know that the Democratic Party is the identity politics party. They like to pander to women, black, Latino, millennial, gay, white women, etc. They nominated and elected the first black man (Barack Obama). They nominated the first woman (Hillary Clinton), but failed. They'll try to run a woman or a Latino candidate, potentially. However, do you see Democrats nominating a lesbian feminist, and could that person win the presidency in the future, especially since the Left controls the media, academia, etc.?

    As we grind on toward the midterms it’s beginning to feel as if there’s a new “Democratic strategy” announcement every other day. It’s almost as if they can’t make up their minds, despite the fact that history tells us they should be heading for some significant victories in congressional races. Be that as it may, McClatchy reports that there’s yet another battle plan in the works and this one caught me by surprise. Despite an endless parade of bad news stories about the President coming out on a daily basis, some Democrats would like their party to execute a bold...

    It is eminently creditable to the sagacity, if not to the honesty, of the Democratic leaders that they prefer to limit discussion of the merits of their party, in the present canvass, strictly to the platform adopted in New York by their Fourth of July National Convention. For very obvious reasons, they are “dead” against dead issues. There is as much shrewdness as apparent resignation in their willingness to let “bygones be bygones.” In this prompt, business-like course there would be much to commend, if one did not see lurking behind it a very ugly fact which it is designed...

    If Democrats win the House in November, 35 women are poised to lead committees and subcommittees in the next Congress — an historically high figure that would put female lawmakers in the driver's seat for some of the most pressing issues facing Congress and the country. That number would almost triple the amount of GOP women currently holding similar positions, and it would mark a measurable achievement for Democratic lawmakers looking to take the “Year of the Woman” to new heights of power. The shift also would come at the outset of a crucial 2020 presidential cycle, when Democrats want...

    Forget the Russian government — foreign nationals are increasingly gaining the ability to influence American elections more directly. They’re being granted the right to vote. From Boston, where the city council is debating the move, to San Francisco, where noncitizens gained the right earlier this month in school-board elections, jurisdictions are looking to expand the boundaries of the electorate beyond its citizens.

    The Left has decided that the solution to the problem of race relations in America is more racism. The Left has decided that attacking, insulting, and dehumanizing one group of people elevates another. The Left now believes there are no boundaries when telling lies, omitting the truth, or misrepresenting the facts when telling the news because their end justifies their means. The Left has now decided that its point of view is the ONLY acceptable one and that suppressing, censuring, and banning open debate is virtuous and progressive. The Democratic Party has adopted a deleterious belief system, happily and without...

    The ramifications of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s stunning primary defeat of longtime Queens Democratic boss and Congressman Joe Crowley (D-NY) extend well beyond the confines of Capitol Hill. The 28-year-old member of Democratic Socialists of America—who shockingly won in New York’s 14th congressional district on a leftist platform of Medicare for All, abolishing ICE, and a federal jobs guarantee—inspired a major boost in membership for the organization on Wednesday. According to Lawrence Dreyfuss, a program associate for DSA, the organization saw a surge of 1,152 new memberships on Wednesday—about 35 times more sign-ups than on an average day. The last major membership...

    The Democratic National Committee and members of Congress are turning to Hollywood for help with voter turnout and messaging ahead of the midterm elections and 2020 presidential campaign, quietly consulting with a group of actors, writers and producers here. DNC Chairman Tom Perez, several House members and other top elected officials have already met with the group, formed by members of the entertainment industry in the wake of the 2016 election, that participants liken to a TV writers’ room, complete with producers of such programs as “Veep.” The existence of the group and details of the meetings have not been...

    The U.S. Supreme Court is considering a constitutional challenge to a California law targeting pro-life pregnancy centers. The so-called FACT Act requires the centers to tell clients they may qualify for subsidized abortions—a clear example of compelled speech. But such laws aren’t the only threats to the centers’ freedom of speech. At the local level, activists have begun a quiet push to protect the abortion industry through zoning. Last month the Women’s Care Center, which operates 28 pregnancy and family-resource centers in 10 states, became the latest target. A Texas-based abortion-clinic chain, Whole Women’s Health, convinced the mayor of South...

    Trump’s nominee Gina Haspel Is it true that Democrats are anti-women? It certainly appears that way. Doesn’t sound like a winning formula to me, but then TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) turns otherwise rational folks into delusional idiots. The Democrats do not want a woman to be in charge of the CIA; they are poised to resist the selection of President Trump’s nominee Gina Haspel for that job. She would be the first female to head the CIA and Democrats are opposed to her, even though she is eminently qualified.

    (Full title: Donkey running on Highway 101 shot and killed by Mendocino County Animal Control officers) An aggressive 40-year-old donkey loose on Highway 101 in Hopland was shot and killed by Mendocino County Animal Control officers Wednesday at the request of the animal’s owner. The 500-pound donkey was reported running on the highway around 3:30 p.m. prompting a response from the CHP, Caltrans, the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office and animal control, authorities said. The donkey posed a threat to drivers coming around a blind corner on Highway 101, the Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. A driver was injured after...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) hasn’t lost his ability to make Democrats mad, and once again, he has triggered an intraparty kerfuffle on social media. As we head towards the next presidential cycle, many people — on the right, the left and in the media — will be saying Democrats are in the throes of an identity crisis, a struggle for their party’s soul that will tear them apart. But they aren’t, and they won’t be. The Democratic Party screws up plenty and contains its share of idiots, but when it comes to its identity, it’s doing just fine. On Wednesday,...

    The California Democratic Party decided not to endorse in the U.S. Senate contest on Saturday, an embarrassing rebuke of veteran Sen. Dianne Feinstein. Feinstein, who has represented California in the Senate for a quarter-century, is facing an insurgent bid by a fellow Democrat, state Senate leader Kevin de León. He earned nearly 500 more votes than the senator, who was first elected in 1992. De León has cultivated relationships with the party’s delegates. He still faces a significant challenge in trying to topple Feinstein, who trounces De León in all public polling and fund-raising. The party also did not endorse...
