    Democratic Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal retweeted a Holocuast-themed tweet on Thursday in reference to Missouri's Jewish Republican Gov. Eric Greitens. Chappelle-Nadal, the state lawmaker who recently wrote she hoped President Donald Trump would be assassinated, shared a tweet that said, "Greitens should know where the Trump Train goes. At the end of the line is this place!" The tweet included a picture showing the gates of a Nazi concentration camp. (TWEET-AT-LINK) The tweet is no longer on Chappelle-Nadal's Twitter page. The picture of the gate of the camp includes the sign with the words, "Arbeit Macht Frei," translated to...

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.— A Missouri lawmaker who temporarily posted a Facebook comment expressing hope that President Donald Trump would be assassinated could face an effort to remove her from office. Gov. Eric Greitens and Lt. Gov. Mike Parson, both Republicans, said on Friday that state senators should oust Democratic Sen. Maria Chapelle-Nadal, who has continued to reject calls for her resignation. "If she will not resign, the Senate can vote to remove her. I believe they should," Greitens said in a written statement....

    The Secret Service is now looking into threats that a Democratic state senator from Missouri posted on Facebook. State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal was responding to a comment, saying she hopes President Trump gets assassinated. She has since deleted her Facebook comment. (TWEETS-AT-LINK) Chappelle-Nadal told the Kansas City Star she made the comments “out of frustration with the 'trauma and despair'” caused by Trump's remarks after the violent clashes in Charlottesville. “The way I responded this morning was wrong,” she added. “I’m frustrated. Did I mean the statement? No. Am I frustrated? Absolutely. The president is causing damage. He’s causing hate."...

    The St. Louis Post-Dispatch ^ | October 29, 2016 | Chuck Raasch and Christine Byers
    The St. Louis County Police Association is calling a painting placed in the U.S. Capitol complex by Rep. William Lacy Clay a “punch in the mouth” for depicting police officers as animals. Clay, D-St. Louis, said he would not take it down, despite criticism from conservative bloggers and a call from a Fox News commentator for it to be taken down. The painting, which has hung for months in a tunnel that connects House office buildings with the U.S. Capitol, was chosen the winner of Clay’s annual art competition for St. Louis students last spring. It was done by then-Cardinal...

    Politico ^ | 9/13/2016 | Maggie Severns
    Red-state Democrats and party strategists are already nervously looking past 2016, when they are angling to recapture the Senate, to the 2018 elections, hoping against hope that their party isn’t setting itself up for a titanic midterm backlash that could flip control of the Senate for a third time in three elections. As difficult as the 2016 Senate map has been for Republicans, who had to defend numerous blue- and purple-state seats and could lose their majority, Democrats’ 2018 map looks practically unnavigable. The party starts with five ruby-red seats to defend: Indiana, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota and West Virginia....

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. —A new poll shows Donald Trump expanding his lead in Missouri, but incumbent Republican Sen. Roy Blunt continues to be in a close race for re-election. Public Policy Polling, a firm that does a lot of work for Democratic candidates, said its poll shows Trump with a 6-point lead over Hillary Clinton in Missouri. The survey of 1,055 likely voters has Trump leading 47 percent to 41 percent, with 11 percent undecided. Two other recent polls had Clinton within one point of Trump in Missouri. The website Real Clear Politics rates Missouri a toss-up, even though a...

    While police officers are getting murdered in Dallas and Baton Rouge, while others are under assault in Missouri, Georgia and Tennessee, while supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement attempt to justify the murders of police officers, the Democratic National Convention, AKA Hillary’s Coronation, will feature the mothers of black men who died in confrontations with police, thereby perpetuating the myth that there is systemic racism in police departments across the nation. One mother who will speak will be Lezley McSpadden, the mother of Michael Brown, the “Gentle Giant” who burgled a convenience store, then attempted to grab the gun...

    SPRINGFIELD, Mo- Congressman Billy Long is telling Missourians it's time to get on team Trump.

To unite the Republican Party. Missouri Congressman Billy Long endorses Trump. He's trying to get other republican congressmen to do the same. Long says he was pleased that Trump made the trip to...

    The Hill's Ballot Box Blog ^ | March 16, 2016 | Lisa Hagen
    The Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders presidential campaigns are weighing whether to ask for a recount in Missouri following results that found them just two-tenths of 1 percent behind Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, respectively. Media outlets have yet to call the race due to the extremely close margins. The Missouri Secretary of State's office said that all results are unofficial until they're certified, which could take up to four weeks. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Trump leads Cruz by 0.2 percent, and the two are separated by about 1,700 votes. On the Democratic side, Clinton also leads Sanders...

    The Jewish Press ^ | March 16, 2016 | Lori Lowenthal Marcus, U.S. correspondent
    Clinton bested Sanders in all the March 15 primaries except for Missouri, and Cruz is now Trump's only competition for the Republican nomination.With the exception of Gov. John Kasich taking his home state of Ohio, Donald Trump won or is projected to win all the March 15 Republican primaries. Trump came in second in Ohio. However, the race is very close in Missouri, with Cruz only a quarter point behind Trump with 62 percent of the precincts reporting. Although Sen. Marco Rubio came in second in his home state of Florida, he saw the writing on the wall and suspended...

    The Kansas City Star ^ | March 13, 2016 | Steve Kraske
    The important, but overshadowed, Missouri presidential primary is Tuesday. It's overshadowed by the big contests in Ohio and Florida and because of the five states voting that day, it's the smallest prize in terms of delegates. But it's important nonetheless as the oh-so-competitive primary campaigns rage across the nation. And, hey, the candidates are competing here, which means they consider it worth winning. So who will the battle of Missouri? Here's a series of predictions: Dave Helling, Kansas City Star political writer: Republicans: Ted Cruz. "Missouri liked Santorum, Akin, and almost picked Huckabee. And the suburbs may be scared of...

    Missouri Rep. Ann Wagner on Friday endorsed Ted Cruz's presidential campaign, hailing the Texas senator as a constitutional conservative Republicans should unite behind. Wagner's support comes a day after Cruz got his first Senate endorsement from Mike Lee and just a few days ahead of Missouri's primary. "I am proud to endorse Senator Ted Cruz ahead of the GOP Primary on March 15th," Wagner said in a statement released by the Cruz campaign. "Republicans must unite to win behind a strong, constitutional conservative like Ted Cruz." Cruz will campaign in suburban St. Louis on Saturday at a rally with Carly...
  • If Edward Snowden Is Right About Clinton's Emails, Bernie Sanders Will Win a Landslide Victory

    The Huffington Post's Politics The Blog ^ | October 1, 2015 | H.A. Goodman, columnist
    Perhaps nobody on the planet knows more about intelligence protocol than Edward Snowden. If Snowden says it's "completely ridiculous" to believe that Clinton's emails were safe, then yes, it's fair to include his viewpoint in any critique of Hillary Clinton's latest controversy. In addition, since I believe Senator Bernie Sanders is desperately needed at this point in U.S. history, and electing Clinton or a Republican would essentially be nominating the same president on war and foreign policy, it's important to address relevant analysis of the email controversy. There seems to be a bizarre paradigm of thought among some Democrats that...

    Eight-term Missouri Congressman Sam Graves on Monday endorsed Ted Cruz for president. Said Graves of northwest Missouri: “I have personally seen Ted Cruz stand up and fight on the issues that matter the most to conservatives, even when it wasn’t popular in Congress. He has never wavered. He has always stood on principle. And he has always put the American people first.” Graves’ long-time campaign consultant Jeff Roe is running Cruz’s campaign, so the endorsement is not a big surprise. “As threats emerge – from ISIS, to Russia, to the Iranian nuclear program – we need a president with the...

    Donald Trump was the winner by a wide margin among area Republicans who cast ballots in a presidential preference straw poll held last week as part of the annual Newton County Republican watermelon feed. Trump received 27 percent of the vote, followed by Ben Carson, 14.5 percent; Ted Cruz, 13.7 percent; Mike Huckabee, 9.6 percent; Scott Walker, 9 percent; Jeb Bush, 7.2 percent; Rand Paul, 6 percent; Carly Fiorina, 4.2 percent; Marco Rubio, 2.4 percent; Bobby Jindal, 1.8 percent; and John Kasich, 1.2 percent.

    It was a good week for disruptive innovation. Three protestors affiliated with Black Lives Matter shut down Bernie Sanders yet again, this time at a Seattle rally Saturday afternoon. Meanwhile, Donald Trump escalated his disruptive impact on the Republican presidential field, with a post-debate remark implying that Fox reporter Megyn Kelly was menstruating when she asked him provocative questions, fittingly, about his coarse put-downs of women. The two forms of disruption invite comparison. BLM is disrupting the most progressive candidate in the Democratic field. Why? Because in the year since the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson, the issue of...

    One year ago today, on August 9, 2014, police officer Darren Wilson killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. A grand jury investigated the incident for three months and decided not to indict Wilson. About 5,000 pages of grand-jury transcripts and evidence were released to the public. The US Department of Justice conducted a parallel investigation and issued a report, titled Department of Justice Report Regarding the Criminal Investigation Into the Shooting Death of Michael Brown by Ferguson, Missouri Police Officer Darren Wilson (hereafter called the Justice Report) on March 4, 2015. The two most important passages were: … federal prosecutors...

In email polling of 122 coalition members conducted July 26 through July 29, Texas Senator Ted Cruz came in first at 29 percent, followed by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker at 27 percent, with Trump at 19 percent.

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Donald Trump's incendiary comments - and the GOP response - are proving political gold for Democrats. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid jumped on both Tuesday, first attacking Trump for his criticism of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., then pivoting to a larger target: the growing GOP presidential field and the entire Republican Party. Reid, D-Nev., noted that while Trump's GOP White House rivals were nearly unanimous in denouncing Trump's suggestion that McCain is not really a war hero, they were more tentative in responding to his criticisms of Mexican immigrants as "criminals" and "rapists."(continued)
