    Some members of the cast of Parks and Recreation will reunite for a fundraiser for Wisconsin Democrats. If this sounds familiar, it should. The cast of Princess Bride is also reuniting for the same purpose – helping guarantee that Wisconsin turns out the vote for Joe Biden. Several of the show’s stars, including Amy Poehler, Adam Scott and Nick Offerman, will hold a virtual event raising money for the Wisconsin Democratic Party.Aubrey Plaza, Retta, Jim O’Heir and series co-creator Michael Schur will also join in on the fundraiser, in addition to some surprise guests. The event is titled “A...
  • How One FDA Regulation Could Impact President Trump’s Re-election Chances

    Irrespective of one’s personal opinions of President Donald Trump, it is difficult to deny his tremendous success in cutting job-killing red tape holding back large sections of the economy. Trump made deregulation a key focus of his 2016 presidential campaign, declaring, “we're going to cancel every needless job-killing regulation and put a moratorium on new regulations until our economy gets back on its feet.” And, for the most part, President Trump has held true to that promise. In his first three years in office, more than eight regulations were repealed for every new rule implemented. The result was nothing short...
  • Is This Real? Why Some Are Calling the DNC Outro Monday Night 'The Moment Trump Won Re-Election'

    This cannot be real. Did two hours of watching the Democratic National Convention cause me to lose my mind? President Trump was blamed by one woman for causing her father's death from COVID. Yeah, she used his dead body to score political points, I'm sure that's what he—a Trump supporter—would have really wanted. Bernie tried to get the progressive base excited for Joe; it wasn't convincing. And then we have the loser brigade, some no-name Republicans who are throwing their support behind Joe Biden. John Kasich is also doing that—forever cementing himself as the Benedict Arnold of the Republican Party....
  • Daviscourt: Seattle Residents Voting for Trump After Democrats Refuse To Stop Rioting

    Granted, not all of these — even a majority — were liberal. It’s also a Turning Point USA representative selecting what were undoubtedly the responses that best illustrated a point the conservative group would like to make. That said, the fact Daviscourt was even able to get any self-described moderates on camera is a miracle. There were a few anecdotal responses reporting the same thing in other liberal locales: However, if you want an actual testimony regarding someone who was “mugged by reality,” I give you the tale of Paul Gallant, an ESPN radio host in the Emerald City.
  • Trump to pardon Susan B. Anthony over 1872 voting arrest [the ultimate troll]

    President Trump said he will pardon Susan B. Anthony, the leader of the women’s suffrage movement who was arrested for violating male-only voting laws in 1872, at an event later Tuesday. “I will be signing a full and complete pardon for Susan B. Anthony,” he told reporters at the White House. “She was never pardoned.” The pardon comes 100 years to the day after the 19th Amendment, which ensured women’s right to vote, was ratified.

    CNET reports that Google’s video-sharing platform YouTube has announced new updates to its policies relating to deceptive content on its platform as it aims to prevent the spread of information that could “interfere” with the upcoming U.S. elections. YouTube is the world’s largest video platform with more than 2 billion users a month, it will now reportedly begin banning videos containing information that was obtained through hacking and could affect elections or censuses. This leads many to question whether information obtained from sources such as WikiLeaks is allowed on the platform. The update follows the announcement of a similar rule...
  • Majority of American voters support the president's payroll tax cut

    A majority of registered U.S. voters support President Trump's recent enactment of a payroll tax cut, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen. Trump earlier this month announced the cut via executive order, a measure the president took as negotiations stalled between Republicans and Democrats over a new coronavirus relief package. Asked whether they either "favor or oppose cutting the payroll taxes for all workers and businesses," 26% of registered voters responded that they "strongly" favored it, while 26% said they "somewhat" favored it. Slightly over a third of respondents were opposed to the measure,...

    SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazil right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro on Thursday said he hopes Republican U.S. President Donald Trump will be reelected in November, although he said the commercial relationship between the two countries is promising even if a Democrat wins. Bolsonaro has often lauded Trump, calling him a political role model and drawing parallels between their conservative agendas.

    It is critical that the Republicans retake the House and keep the Senate and of course the White House. I have an idea the will: 1) show the American people whose side Republicans are on 2) show the American people whose side the Democrats are on because it will be impossible for them to oppose but they will 3) not cost very much because it is already happening

    This is a big deal. Many of us who have listened to or watched Fox News over the years are familiar with civil rights attorney Leo Terrell. I always dismissed him as an annoying blowhard whose spouting of Democrat talking points were used by the hosts as a contrasting foil and for entertainment value. Last Sunday, I was surprised to find that Mark Levin did not share that view, and, in fact, held Mr. Terrell in high regard. Who knew? I had heard Mr. Terrell (perhaps on Tucker Carlson's show) talking sense, for a change, on Democrats, race, and Black...

    The Hill ^ | 06 30 2020 | Tal Axelrod
    President Trump’s reelection campaign has announced a staff shakeup just over four months before the general election as polls show him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden. Michael Glassner, who organizes Trump’s rallies, is being reassigned to a legal role within the campaign, and Jeff DeWit, a former Arizona state treasurer and Trump's 2016 Arizona chair, will come on as chief operating officer. The shakeup, which was first reported by Axios and confirmed by a campaign official to The Hill, comes after a rally two weekends ago in Tulsa, Okla., where the president garnered embarrassing headlines after being unable to...
  • Bad news for Trump not so bad after all; Things don't look too promising for President Trump's re-election. But looks can be deceiving

    American Thinker ^ | 06/09/2020 | Fritz Pettyjohn
    Things don't look too promising for President Trump's re-election. He's down by eight points in the RCP poll average (41.6 to 49.6), has his approval rating at 41.3, and the betting odds have his chances at 45% vs. Biden's 50%. Unemployment is somewhere between 13% and 16%, the COVID-19 pandemic remains a deadly threat, rioting has destroyed significant sections of urban America, and outrage over the death of George Floyd continues unabated. This is all actually good news for Trump. The only real threat to his re-election is from an articulate young Democratic politician of substance and accomplishment taking...
  • Modern Campaigning: Trump Victory's Unprecedented Ground Game

    Running a modern and sophisticated national campaign is an enormous feat under normal circumstances, let alone during the coronavirus pandemic that our country is currently facing. As President Trump leads the country through this crisis with impressive strength and rapid response time, his campaign has followed in his footsteps by shifting its focus from a traditional, face to face, ground operation to an entirely virtual one. Thankfully, under President Donald Trump and RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel’s leadership we have the tools and resources to meet the challenge of running a successful virtual campaign. Currently, Trump Victory -- the joint...

    A week ago, Tucker Carlson warned that the outbreak of the novel coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China in 2019, COVID-19, could put Bernie Sanders in the White House. Carlson is right. President Trump’s response to COVID-19, rhetorical and actual, will make or break his presidency.As the markets were panicking over the virus, Trump claimed the media and Democrats were overblowing the virus to hurt him politically: “Low Ratings Fake News MSDNC (Comcast) & CNN are doing everything possible to make the Caronavirus (sic) look as bad as possible, including panicking markets, if possible,” wrote the president on Twitter.With...

    Consider this scenario. A state holds its elections one year before an unpopular incumbent president is up for reelection. Some candidates won’t even commit to supporting the president’s reelection bid for fear of it hurting their own chances. When the ballots are counted, the president’s party loses control of the state senate, which means the other party controls the legislature and the governor’s mansion. Pundits say that the outcome of Virginia’s election is a bad omen for the president. Wait, isn’t this what just happened in Virginia this week? And surely the fact that Republicans have lost control of a...

    The 2020 election is already in full spin as Donald Trump’s leftist enemies are working hard to see that he wins another four years of glory and success in the White House. Much of what they say and do should be designated as in-kind contributions to his campaign, and we should cheer them on. The 2020 election will be a choice between them or Trump, so the stupider and crazier they are, the better for us. And Trump’s approval rating jump proves it.We just had that whole imbroglio with Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Philadelphia) and her Gang of Four, and...

    Emile Durkheim, a French sociologist, famously discussed something called collective effervescence. Durkheim argued that the universal religious dichotomy of sacrilegious and sacred results form the way in which we live of our lives. Unfortunately, most of us spend too many hours performing menial tasks. These tasks are, for lack of a better word, monotonous. The rare occasions on which the masses have a reason to congregate become sacred, and the high energy level associated with these events gets directed onto momentous events and people. Think religious gatherings, sporting events, or even Trump rallies. To millions of Americans, President Trump is...

    A new poll of Wall Street insiders shows that a vast majority expect President Donald Trump to win reelection in 2020. While Joe Biden was viewed as the most stock market-friendly possible Democratic candidate for the White House, more than 70% of survey respondents told global investment bank RBC Capital Markets that they expect Trump to be reelected. "Most expect Trump to win in 2020, but there's still some nervousness around the event," Lori Calvasina, RBC's head of U.S. equity strategy, wrote to clients. Sixty-seven percent "of our March 2019 survey respondents believe that Joe Biden is seen as the...
