  • Pelosi Breaks With DCCC, Endorses Pro-lifer

    03/02/2018 5:28:55 AM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 13 replies
    Nancy Pelosi is about to lose some progressive friends after deciding to endorse Rep. Dan Lipinski in his re-election bid in Illinois's 3rd congressional district. Lipinski, you see, is one of the very few conservative Democrats left. He has a record of opposing abortion, gay rights and Obamacare. Asked at her weekly press conference Thursday if she supports him, Pelosi replied, "Yes, I do." It is an endorsement even the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has refused to offer. Other Democrats have gone one step further, endorsing his primary challenger, Marie Newman. This is not a rubber-stamp party, Pelosi told The...

    Chris Matthews wonders why Donald Trump isn't using the argument that if you don't like the direction the county is headed then vote for me, a line that is similar to Reagan's "Are you better off than you were four years ago?"

    Donald Trump is set to endorse House Speaker Paul Ryan (Wis.) during a rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin on Friday evening, Fox News reported. The expected endorsement comes three days after Trump told the Washington Post he was not yet ready to back Ryan in his upcoming primary election next Tuesday against Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen. While Trump publicly praised Nehlen for running a very good campaign earlier this week, Ryan is expected to win the primary by a landslide. The House speaker leads Nehlen by 66 points, according to a poll released Friday by the Remington Research Group. Trump...

    Newt Gingrich spoke with Fox Newss Greta Van Susteren live from Clevelands Quicken Loans Arena on Day One of the RNC convention Monday night. At the beginning of their conversation, they addressed the controversy around who is and who isnt present at the convention as the Republican Party gets ready to crown Donald Trump their 2016 nominee. At least one speaker, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), has yet to endorse the GOP nominee. Susteren asked Gingrich if he believed Trumps former presidential opponent would finally announce his support for Trump during his speech Wednesday night. Well I hope he does endorse...

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” radio talk show host Glenn Beck said if Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who he campaigned for throughout the Republican presidential primary, endorsed presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump that would mean he can not trust anyone in Washington D.C. Beck said, “I will tell you if that if Ted Cruz comes out and —what is it Monday or Tuesday night when he gives his speech and he endorses, even a soft endorsement of Donald Trump I will officially have no person in that I can trust says what they mean and mean what they say.”
  • Sanders To Endorse Hillary Clinton Even After DNC Platform Fails to Reject TPP!

    Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders will officially endorse former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Tuesday at a campaign stop in New Hampshire, according to several reports. Sanders had previously said that he would wait to endorse Clinton until critical planks of his platform were adopted by the Democrat Party. Over the weekend DNC delegates rejected one of the biggest pieces of Bernie’s platform by not including language clearly opposing the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal. Sanders’ campaign policy adviser Warren Gunnels is quoted as saying of the rejection of the anti-TPP language in the official platform, “it was very disappointing.”...

    He represents a hotly contested Latino-majority district in Florida. Trump’s favorable rating among Latinos nationwide is, um, 12/77. Democrats will, of course, give special attention to turning out Latino Democrats in Florida. Curbelo’s probably doomed with Trump at the top of the ticket no matter what he does, but crossing the aisle for Hillary is an obvious first step. Frankly, he may be better off switching party affiliations if he wants to hold his seat. One of the eight thousand fascinating things about Trump as nominee would be watching how congressional loyalties shake out. Some, in purplish districts, will go...

Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, ended his own White House campaign last week after failing to win a single primary contest. Trump is scheduled to hold a press conference Friday at 9 a.m. ET at the Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach.

    Mark “Oz” Geist and John “TIG” Tiegen, two members of the security team that helped rescue dozens of Americans during the Benghazi terror attacks, have endorsed Donald Trump for president. According to a statement released Sunday: Mr. Trump stated, “I am truly honored to have the support of these American heroes, the best of their generation. The American people can know with certainty, I will always place their interest above all else. I am the most militaristic person and it is so important to me to strengthen our military and protect American families and freedoms.” Mark “Oz” Geist said, “We,...

    Willie Robertson, the Duck Dynasty television star, endorsed GOP frontrunner Donald Trump on Thursday, saying Trump has two attributes that America needs -"success and strength." “Mr. Trump is a real leader," Robertson said of the real-estate mogul. “He represents success and strength, two attributes our country needs. Like me, he is a successful businessman and family man and I endorse his candidacy for President of the United States." “I am truly honored to receive Willie’s endorsement," Trump said in response to the endorsement. “He is a great person, has had tremendous success and a really terrific family. He believes in...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham endorsed former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush for president on Friday, the campaign confirmed. The Seneca Republican dropped out of the presidential race on Dec. 21, and most of his S.C. backers endorsed the son and brother of two presidents. George Bush and George W. Bush won the Palmetto State’s presidential primaries. Graham said last week, in weighing whether to back a 2016 hopeful, that: “No. 1, will my endorsement matter? I’ve got to see what, if any, damage I have done to myself here at home.” Bush needs a big push as voters begin soon to cast...

The union said the Vermont senator, running to be the Democratic candidate for president against former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and former Maryland governor Martin O'Malley, would be a candidate who would "break with politics-as-usual and fight for America’s working people..."

Our 700,000 members are fired up, and we are going to work overtime to elect Bernie Sanders as the next President of the United States," said CWA President...

    Mayor de Blasio is playing hard-to-get with his former boss and presumptive 2016 Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton. For the third time, de Blasio refused to endorse Clinton on national television, sidestepping questions about throwing his support behind the former New York senator. "As for the Democratic field, each of the candidates is beginning to address these issues," de Blasio said on CBS' "Face the Nation" about whether any of the declared Democratic presidential candidates had adequately addressed issues like income inequality and a higher minimum wage. "I'm waiting to hear a fuller vision from each, on how they'll actually tackle...

    A group representing 5,000 U.S. professors has endorsed an academic boycott of Israeli colleges and universities. The American Studies Association says it voted for the boycott "as an ethical stance." "It represents a principle of solidarity with scholars and students deprived of their academic freedom and an aspiration to enlarge that freedom for all, including Palestinians," a Dec. 4 statement said. According to The New York Times, which reported the boycott Monday, the action the first time the group has called for an academic boycott of any nation's universities makes the group the largest of its kind to...

    Sarah Palin is traveling to Washington DC to CPAC this weekend. Will she find time to endorse and campaign with Newt Gingrich during this trip away from Alaska? Sarah's endorsement would give Newt the well-deserved boost with the Tea Party people across the country. Palin's endorsement could also convince the American people that Rick Santorum is not in the same league as the Conservative Rock Star, Newt Gingrich. Sarah would be able to clarify for the majority of the American conservatives that Newt is a treasure for the American Conservative movement and for the mission of speaking the truth about...

    When Todd Palin announced on Monday that he was backing Newt Gingrich for president, some speculated he was acting as a proxy for his wife. Not so, said Sarah Palin on FOX last night. First dude went rogue, Sarah Palin told FOX Business Networks Eric Bolling when asked whether her husband had consulted her before making the endorsement. And I respect him for doing that. Todd is all about hard hats and steel-toed boots and getting people to work, she said. Todd obviously believing that Newt Gingrich represents more of that connectivity to the working class and to what its...

    While Newt Gingrich campaign staffers are calling such talk premature, there are indications that should the former House Speaker bow out of the GOP race, he would throw his support behind rising Rick Santorum in a last-ditch effort to stop frontrunner Mitt Romney. Multiple South Carolina sources affiliated with Santorum's campaign said Gingrich's campaign has contacted Santorum's campaign to discuss endorsing the former Pennsylvania senator should he drop out. One source, speaking to Patch on the condition they not be identified, paraphrased Gingrich's stance as delivered by high level campaign staff this way: "If it can't be me, I want...
