  • Donna Brazile: DNC Watched Russians Steal Data For Whole Month So They Could Win State Primaries…

    11/08/2017 3:25:33 PM PST · by ColdOne · 52 replies ^ | 11/7/17 | Robert Donachie
    Donna Brazile says in her new book the Democratic National Committee (DNC) went against professional advice and sat idly for a month while Russians stole data because primaries were still underway in a number of states. In May, when CrowdStrike recommended that we take down our system and rebuild it, the DNC told them to wait a month, because the state primaries for the presidential election were still underway, and the party and the staff needed to be at their computers to manage these efforts,” Brazile wrote in her new book, “Hacks.” “For a whole month, CrowdStrike watched Cozy Bear...

    The Democratic Party is in an ongoing crisis, but most of the national media aren’t interested. They’d rather talk about the new “rock star,” Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Coretz, and ignore that the party is up in flames.
  • Vanity - POTUS, Trump hits Campaign Trial heavy this week.

    06/24/2018 8:00:13 AM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 15 replies
    Lots of primary voting action coming up this week and lots of POTUS, Trump campaigning across the country. The POTUS is on his game, taking the issues to the people that really count, the average John & Jane America, rank & file American voters, White, African-American, Hispanic, etc., across the board. The Trump rallies and events will be overflowing with tens of thousands of POTUS, Trump supporters and I believe we will once again witness a strong, positive showing for Trump Republicans across the voting activity with high interest and heavy turn out of Trump supporters. Not so good for...
  • Winners and Losers: Trump is the big winner in Tuesday’s primaries

    Tuesday brought another set of primaries across the country — in Maine, South Carolina, Nevada, North Dakota and Virginia — and another set of surprises. Here are the night's winners and losers. Winners President Trump: It's overly simplistic to say that South Carolina GOP congressman Mark Sanford lost his primary Tuesday because of Trump. But Trump was definitely a factor in making Sanford the second House Republican in 2018 to lose a primary. The president sent off this remarkably caustic tweet on Tuesday afternoon, as voters in South Carolina were getting off work and going to vote.

    Donald Trump erased all doubts about who owns the Republican Party on Tuesday night as several Trump-backed candidates swept to victory in GOP primaries. Primaries were held in Maine, South Carolina, Virginia, Nevada, and North Dakota.  Po-Trump candidates win crucial races.  The most notable among Trump's victories occurred in South Carolina, where former governor and current GOP incumbent Congressman Mark Sanford, a bitter critic of the president, went down to defeat. CBS: In the most dramatic result in primaries across five states Tuesday, Sanford was the second incumbent House Republican to lose a primary this year – and the latest victim of...

    The "Obamabot/Clinton" low life, gutter rat, Trump Hater, Robert De Nero speaks for himself and the Democrat party. Nothing further needs to be said. Voters of all political stripes should shun this has been, loser, and cast all their votes today and in the future for "only" Trump backed candidates. All Establishment Democrats & all Establishment Republican RINOs should be promptly defeated. Do it, folks. Go POTUS, Donald J. Trump, Go, MAGA!!!

    Well...The Democrat Party idle dream of fantasy, "The Democrat Blue Wave' is no more, as of the results of last nights primary elections Blue Wave is no more....a dribble, trickle is what remains. Republicans, Conservatives, Independents, Blue Dog Democrats are all singing loudly this morning in the great state of California. Yes, moderate Democrat, Dianne Feinstein will win her seat easily...but, friends, that is about it. And, yes, Republicans will have to fight hard for every vote, Trump will have to storm California and expose and reveal who Gavin Newsome really is....but, Mr. John Cox is a real contender and...

    The Hill ^ | 06/05/18 | Lisa Hagen
    Hundreds of thousands of voters’ names have been accidentally left off the rosters in Los Angeles County because of a printing error. About 2.3 percent of registered voters in the county — or 118,522 voters — were missing on the lists for Tuesday’s primaries, according to The Los Angeles Times. But those voters are still able to cast provisional ballots, though they won’t be verified right away. This will have an impact in more than a dozen House districts, but will likely have the most dramatic effect on the race to replace retiring GOP Rep. Ed Royce, where Democrats are...

    Voters on Tuesday head to the polls for California's pivotal primary, which could help determine whether Democrats will gain control of the House in the November midterms. The Golden State is home to 10 of the most competitive House races in the nation, virtually all currently held by Republicans. The state is a key to the Democratic Party’s plan to net the 23 seats it needs to flip the House majority in November. But uncertainty abounds thanks to the state's "jungle primary" system, where the top two vote-getters advance to the general election regardless of party affiliation. The unusual dynamic...

    Voting precincts have closed in Alabama, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota as eight states hold primaries Tuesday, including in California where the Democratic Party’s plan to regain control of the House of Representatives faces a big test. The Fox News Decision Desk can now project that former pharmaceutical executive Bob Hugin will win Tuesday’s Republican Senate primary in New Jersey. But it is too early to project a winner on the Democratic side, where incumbent Sen. Bob Menendez is battling fellow Democrat Lisa McCormick. Menendez’s corruption and bribery case is expected to play a starring role in...

    Folks, it's Primary Elections galore this coming Tuesday. There are so many states holding primary elections this coming week, they are too numerous to mention. Of course, California is the number one biggie, but much more is afoot as to how the political winds are blowing, Oncoming "Blue wave or Blue wave trickle". We shall see. The preceding small numbers of primaries have already shown a very low turnout and disappointment of Democrat voters....Republicans seem to be doing OK...but, much needs to be revealed this coming Tuesday as to the real nature and path of the Mid-Term elections. It will...
  • Dem money floods Calif. primaries to avert electoral disaster

    Outside money is flooding into a trio of key California House primaries, as Democrats try to avoid being shut out of the general election. The total outside spending in those June 5 primary races had eclipsed more than $8 million as of Friday, according to an analysis of Federal Election Commission filings by The Hill. The high-dollar spending is in the three GOP-held seats represented by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher and retiring Reps. Darrell Issa and Ed Royce, all of which are viewed as potential pick-up opportunities for Democrats. California’s “jungle” primary system pits all candidates, regardless of party, against one...

    In the Democratic primary in Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District, former fighter pilot Amy McGrath defeated Lexington Mayor Jim Gray while running up strong numbers in the district’s rural areas. Gray, initially cajoled into the contest by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, conceded the race around 8 pm on Tuesday night. . Initially, Gray’s entry into the primary contest drew the ire of McGrath and her campaign. They viewed it as a slight for a candidate who had already created a viral ad and began raising serious money. And according to McGrath’s own campaign, he held at least a 40-point lead...

    " Kentucky is the state that gave us Rand Paul. He is the biggest highlight, however he is not alone like Ben Sasse in Nebraska. Thomas Massie is also a strong Conservative. This primary has a chance to unseat a major swamp creature. Aside from this one race, there wasn’t much action to be had. Mitch McConnell shows that Kentucky does not have a rich history in holding bad politicians accountable. So if there are any Conservative victories in Kentucky, they should be celebrated vocally."

    " Georgia is another state in the deep South that does very little to advance Conservatism in the country. Conservative Picks has thus far shown that the South is not as Conservative as stereotyped. Arkansas sends a bunch of RINOs and so too does Georgia. However, what is remarkable about Georgia is that none of the Republicans except for the awful Senator Iksakson are career politicians. He’s the only one exceeding 12 years other than Democrats, of which, he might as well be. Still, that is something to say about Georgia. The state has a lot of newer faces and...

    It’s great to be an incumbent Republican. You can break your promises to voters, vote to massively increase government spending, and time and time again sell out the conservative base — and for the most part, you don’t need to worry about losing a Republican primary election.

    New York Democratic leaders say they want more people to vote — except they won’t allow anyone but registered Democrats to vote in party primaries. The New York State Democratic Party plans on blocking a proposed resolution at its May 23-24 convention that would allow independent or “unaffiliated” voters to vote in this year’s Democratic primary for governor. New York’s restrictive voting laws became a national embarrassment in 2016 as many younger voters realized they couldn’t vote for Bernie Sanders in the presidential primary against Hillary Clinton because they missed the deadline to enroll as Democrats.
