  • Ilhan Omar Was Caught Raising Money For a Minnesota Food Store And Pocketing The Cash Through A Democratic Fundraising Platform

    Ilhan Omar has a year full of scandals. The Democrats always protected her along with their puppy the mainstream media. Last year, a report claimed that Ilhan Omar and Ahmed Hirsi filed joint tax returns in at least 2014-2015. Yet Ilhan Omar was legally married to another man from 2009-2017. A sitting congresswoman may have filed EIGHT YEARS of fraudulent, felonious, tax returns. The Democrats denied the alleged indiscretions, though the complaints were still unconfirmed to the public at the time. Her short political career is constantly shaken with scandals. Today another scandal broke out. Ilhan Omar asked for donations...
  • US Election 2012: Mitt Romney fortune built with help from Robert Maxwell and Jack Lyons

    The Telegraph (U.K.) ^ | July 19, 2012 | Jon Swaine,
    Maxwell, the late owner of Mirror Newspapers, invested $2 million in Mr Romney's first private equity fund, which launched the controversial career in finance that the Republican presidential challenger now cites as proof of his ability to lead the US to prosperity. He was recruited by Lyons, a late colleague of Mr Romney's at Bain & Company and one of the "Guinness Four" who were convicted in 1990 over the infamous share-trading fraud at the drinks firm. Lyons and his family invested almost $3 million in Mr Romney's fund.

    NBC News ^ | October 27, 2019 | Adam Edelman and Jonathan Allen
    SALT LAKE CITY — One man is an island: Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah. The 72-year-old former Republican presidential nominee has isolated himself from Republicans in the Senate, in his home state and across the country by occasionally — but strongly — criticizing President Donald Trump, including the president's efforts to enlist the aid of foreign governments to probe a leading political opponent. "By all appearances, the President's brazen and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling," Romney tweeted earlier this month. In recent weeks, the senator's acts of rebellion against the...

    The Africa Report ^ | September 23, 2019 | Victor Karam
    The first member of the House of Representatives of Palestinian origin, Rashida Tlaib managed to change the momentum on the Palestinian question. She is fighting tooth and nail, with three other Democratic women representatives, to get Donald Trump removed from office. Michigan, bordering Canada, is best known for its once flourishing automotive industry. But the 2008 election of a Muslim woman of Palestinian origin to the Michigan House of Representatives revealed another aspect: Michigan’s strong Arab-American community. “Miss First” elected with 84% of the vote The eldest daughter of a Palestinian couple of modest background, Rashida Tlaib is the only...
  • Do the Democrats need Hillary or Michelle to enter the race?

    The East Oregonian ^ | October 17, 2019 | Carl Golden
    It began with 25 candidates. It’s been reduced by half, yet concern persists among Democrats that the party should look beyond the still standing contenders and seek an individual capable of party unification and persuade him or her to enter the race. It is an acknowledgement that each of the current candidates is burdened by baggage — ideological or personal — but seem determined to take the contest through a string of expensive, exhausting and bitter primaries. Former Vice President Joe Biden, whose lead has shrunk to single digits or vanished altogether, has been hurt by periodic mental lapses and...
  • Bannon: Democrats May Need To Recruit Bloomberg, Michelle Obama, Or Hillary To Beat Trump In 2020

    RealClearPolitics ^ | August 11, 2019 | Tim Haines
    Former Trump campaign manager Steve Bannon told FNC's Maria Bartiromo in an interview on "Sunday Morning Futures" that he doesn't think any of the declared Democratic candidates have the ability to beat President Trump in the 2020 election. Bannon suggests that Democrats may have to recruit Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, or Michael Bloomberg to stop Trump from being re-elected. STEVE BANNON: I said this last week, Maria, I don't see anybody on that stage right now that can take President Trump one on one. I pride myself, he's called me his star pupil, his top pupil, I've been studying this...
  • Conservative group tags Romney as anti-Trump, pro-impeachment in ad

    The Politico ^ | October 16, 2019 | Alex Isenstadt
    The Club for Growth, which opposed Trump in the 2016 primary, is spending $40,000 to show the ad in Utah. The Club for Growth, a conservative advocacy group, is going up with TV ads attacking Sen. Mitt Romney — a preemptive warning shot against fellow Republicans who are considering getting behind impeachment. The 30-second commercial, which will begin running Thursday digitally and on Fox News stations in Utah, portrays Romney as a sunglasses-wearing spy and accuses him of being a “Democrat secret asset” who is “plotting to take down President Trump with impeachment.” The move comes as the first-term Utah...
  • Sherrod Brown, Amy Klobuchar score high on electability; Elizabeth Warren, not so much

    Now that the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination has officially started, one of the big issues that will likely come up is which candidate is the most electable. One way to find that out is to see how the different possible candidates have done in the past. Of course, it's difficult to compare candidates when they run for different offices in different years. There are, however, six potential 2020 Democratic contenders ran who ran for the US Senate in 2018. The big takeaway from those results: Sens. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Sherrod Brown of Ohio are above-average candidates...

    Anyone wondering why religious people still support Donald Trump, despite his flaws, need only watch a recording of the Democrats’ fanatical LGBTQ town hall last week. From Elizabeth Warren mocking religious males as incapable of finding a wife to Beto O’Rourke’s promise to strip tax benefits from religious institutions, or Cory Booker’s assertion that Catholics use religion to justify discrimination, you see the ugly face of militant secularism and coercion. It is frightening that every one of the nine Democratic candidates who took part in the CNN event has signed up to extreme policies that attack religious liberty and radically...

    The San Francisco Chronicle ^ | October 12, 2019 | Willie Brown
    Many of you dismissed my call for a Hillary Clinton versus Donald Trump rematch as lunacy. “Call me crazy,” I wrote. Some of the more polite responses did. But it definitely caught the attention of Donald Trump. How else to explain his out-of-right-field tweet Tuesday after yours truly wrote that Clinton would make a far stronger 2020 opponent than any of the Democrats now running? “I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren,” the president tweeted. “Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her...

    Esquire ^ | October 7, 2019 | Charles Pierce
    I am excessively neutral on the subject of Joe Biden as a candidate for president. History would indicate that giving him another shot at it would be rather like handing Joe Hazelwood another supertanker. Nonetheless, considering the alternative, I'd walk through fire to vote for him. However, this piece in The New York Times is a vivid reminder that a) Biden's skills as a campaigner remain dodgy, and b) that he also seems to have lost a step as well. For more than a week, President Trump had been hurling unfounded accusations about Mr. Biden, his son Hunter and their...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 7, 2019 | Eddie Scarry
    Frustrated liberals have been asking for the last four years what it’s going to take for President Trump’s supporters to abandon him. Because, like, don’t they know he’s about to be impeached!? New York Times columnist David Brooks attempted to answer the question last week by imagining a conversation with someone he simply referred to as “Flyover Man,” because apparently he didn’t know a single real Trump supporter. It never seems to occur to liberals that perhaps the real problem isn’t that a lot of people continue supporting the president even though he can be strange, vulgar, and sometimes even...
  • Kamala Harris would 'probably not' let her VP's child serve on foreign co. board like Hunter

    The Washington Examiner ^ | September 28, 2019 | Emily Larsen
    Kamala Harris said that as president, she would likely prohibit the son or daughter of her vice president from serving on the board of a foreign energy company, as former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter did for a Ukrainian gas company. "Probably not," the California senator and Democratic presidential hopeful said Saturday when asked whether she would allow her vice president's child to be on the board of a foreign oil company. Impeachment inquiries center in part on President Trump asking Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a July phone call to look into then-Vice President Biden threatening to withhold...

    The Post-Standard ^ | September 27, 2019 | The Washington Post
    For the first time, two Republican governors have publicly supported the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump, a new development in an intensifying political fracas that has so far been largely partisan. Vermont Gov. Phil Scott and Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, both outspoken critics of Trump, said Thursday that they favored the investigation, but Scott added that he would wait for more information before calling for further action against the president. In a statement to The Washington Post, Scott called the inquiry "appropriate" and said it is a key part of Congress's duty as a co-equal branch of government. "I...

    CNBC ^ | September 26, 2019 | Brian Schwartz
    Democratic donors on Wall Street and in big business are preparing to sit out the presidential campaign fundraising cycle — or even back President Donald Trump — if Sen. Elizabeth Warren wins the party’s nomination. In recent weeks, CNBC spoke to several high-dollar Democratic donors and fundraisers in the business community and found that this opinion was becoming widely shared as Warren, an outspoken critic of big banks and corporations, gains momentum against Joe Biden in the 2020 race. “You’re in a box because you’re a Democrat and you’re thinking, ‘I want to help the party, but she’s going to...

    The New York Post ^ | September. 13. 2019 | Michael Goodwin
    And the winner is … Donald Trump. The Democrats’ third presidential debate was a long-winded, platitude-filled disaster where no single candidate could claim a clear victory. Instead, the seven men and three women took turns displaying why they are all probably unelectable. Start with Joe Biden’s incoherence. The nominal front-runner, the former vice president had a 40-year reputation for never shutting up. Now he can’t manage to finish a sentence without interrupting himself. Nearly all his efforts to make a point were swamped by a sudden change of direction mid-sentence, and then another change a few words later as a...

    The Hollywood Reporter ^ | September 5, 2019 | Jeremy Barr
    Democratic presidential hopefuls are hitting up potential donors after their participation in the seven-hour-long event. After participating in CNN's 10-candidate, seven-hour-long climate town-hall extravaganza on Wednesday night, some of the leading candidates for president are using the event to pitch potential donors. The Bernie Sanders campaign blasted a fundraising request pegged to the network's event on Thursday morning. "Last night I joined 9 other Democratic presidential candidates at CNN's Climate Town Hall, and there is no question that our Green New Deal plan to address the climate emergency is the most ambitious plan of anyone else in this race," the...

    Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore may be lacking general political acumen, but perhaps he at least knows how to give a fairly accurate prognosis of events to come when it comes to Democratic politics. On Thursday, he issued Democrats a dire warning: Nominate former Vice President Joe Biden and risk alienating progressive voters come 2020. Writing a lengthy Twitter post, Moore first attacked Biden for attending a fundraiser hosted by Andrew Goldman, the founder of the natural gas company Western LNG, and argued that the former vice president is far too similar to Hillary Clinton. "Last night on CNN, a student...

    A trillion here, a trillion there. Senator Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday night proposed spending $1 trillion for “decarbonizing our electricity, our vehicles, and our buildings.” That, she said on Twitter, was “on top of the $2 trillion I’ve already committed to green research, manufacturing, and exporting. We’ll create millions of jobs and achieve the goals of the #GreenNewDeal.” With the top Democratic candidates about to take part in a Wednesday CNN town hall on climate change, most have put forth sweeping plans that would transform the U.S. ecomomy. Yet the proposals would be enormously expensive, and their authors have come...
