    Scammers in Bangladesh created over 1,700 fake Women's March Facebook pages in order to sell t-shirts, according to a CNN report. CNN reported the Facebook pages appeared to be run by local Women's March organizers when in reality they were being created out of the South Asian country, with some of the pages linking to web sites intended to design and sell t-shirts and other merchandise. The news agency brought the list of false groups to Facebook over the weekend, which swiftly deleted them and informed CNN that it was conducting its own investigation into the matter. "These Pages and...

    If you're a regular reader, this trend doesn't come as a surprise.  We've been tracking and flagging it since the Kavanaugh ordeal, which galvanized legions of previously-disengaged or underwhelmed GOP-leaning voters.  We've demonstrated how that impact has continued to reverberate, particularly in Senate races.  And now, the mainstream conventional wisdom appears to be catching up.  Charlie Cook, who leads the vaunted Cook Political Report, is out with a new detailed analysis pointing to a clear uptick in Republicans' fortunes: Charlie Cook: “One question that keeps coming back up is whether those who led the out-of-control demonstrations on Capitol Hill against...

    President Donald Trump is headed to Texas on Oct. 22 to hold a rally at NRG Arena in Houston. Trump had promised to visit the state before Election Day to campaign with U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz in his re-election bid. Trump's campaign announced Monday evening that the rally will take place at the NRG Arena. The date marks the first day of early voting for the November election, in which Cruz faces a strong challenge from U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-El Paso.
  • With FL, IA Races in Play, Ryan's PAC Ponies Up

    10/17/2018 6:03:02 AM PDT · by SMGFan · 9 replies
    House Speaker Paul Ryan’s super PAC, the Congressional Leadership Fund, announced Tuesday that it reserved $1 million in television ads in Cedar Rapids, Iowa for two-term incumbent Rep. Rod Blum and a mid-six-figure amount for Maria Salazar, who is running against former Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala in South Florida’s 27th Congressional District. Just a few months ago, these seats had been written off as flipping from red to blue; however, the combination of strengthening poll results in both districts and a narrowing of the overall enthusiasm gap has put them back into play.

    Facing the prospect of bruising electoral defeat in congressional elections, President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he won’t accept the blame if his party loses control of the House in November, arguing his campaigning and endorsements have helped Republican candidates. In a wide-ranging interview three weeks before Election Day, Trump told The Associated Press he senses voter enthusiasm rivaling 2016 and he expressed cautious optimism that his most loyal supporters will vote even when he is not on the ballot. He dismissed suggestions that he might take responsibility, as his predecessor did, for midterm losses or view the outcome as...

    One campaign worker admits McCaskill would go as far as supporting a ban on semiautomatic rifles. Campaign worker Glen Winfrey describes how McCaskill intends to explain to voters why she flip-flopped on the issue of impeaching President Trump. He says she will tell Missourians, “Get over it. It was a national security question.” He adds that hiding her intent to vote for Trump’s impeachment will be explained as patriotic.

    Florida Politics ^ | September 27, 2018 | Peter Schorsch
    Last week, federal authorities fined Munilla Construction Management $25,868 for “serious” safety violations in its role as the contractor on the Florida International University bridge that collapsed in March, killing six people. The morning after the collapse, Juan Perez, director of the Miami-Dade Police Department, said the department’s homicide squad would explore criminal charges for contractors such as MCM. “We’ve got to look at the reality that there may be some negligence down the line,” Perez said. Perez answers to Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez, who appointed him director in January 2016. Miami-Dade is the only county in Florida where the...

    A majority of American voters say they oppose celebrities giving political endorsements, according to a new American Barometer survey. The poll, conducted by Hill.TV and the HarrisX polling company, found that 60 percent of respondents said they opposed celebrities giving political endorsements because "they polarize public opinion and distract from the important issues of the day." Forty percent of respondents said they support celebrities giving endorsements because "they spread awareness and engage people to vote." The poll also showed a partisan divide on the issue with 80 percent of Republicans polled saying they oppose the endorsements, and 43 percent of...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 10/16/18 | Dennis Jamison
    Republicans are far from perfect, but the greatest anger, bitterness, and resentment is originating from one side of the political arena these days. The confirmation hearings of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, now Justice Kavanaugh, revealed the current political playbook for Democrat leadership for as long as the insurrectionists control the Party. The Democrat leadership, from Barack and Michelle Obama on down through the hierarchy of “tyrannically-correct” politicians, media moguls, and Hollywood hypocrites, has declared all-out opposition to the Trump presidency and anyone who is allied with Donald Trump. Anyone who has been paying attention - especially viewing the mainstream media outlets...

    Traditionally, political parties have a platform to convince voters to vote for their side. The left no longer has a coherent message for the American people. Instead, Democrats have taken their party away from politics and moved their position to revenge, assault, and chaos. Since 2016, the left has been in a state of shellshock. Democrats began blaming Russia’s president for Trump’s victory. Attorney General Jeff Sessions stepped aside to allow Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to oversee the allegations that Trump somehow coordinated with Putin to win the general election even though former President Obama said it was impossible. Former FBI...

    Wilson voters made a statement Monday afternoon when they banded together to change their political party affiliation. **SNIP** Six voters headed to the Wilson County Board of Elections Monday to do just that, including 88-year-old Joyce Wells. “I’ve never felt like this before,” said Wells, who has been a registered Democrat for 70 years. “I’m going to independent.” Wells said the decision to switch followed Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual misconduct. “I can tell you how simple it is for me,” Wells said. “I believe in the Constitution and innocent until...

    Sinema was scripted, very...more polished...more canned answers: "I just looovvvve Arizona. It is sooo beautiful...I like to take walks outdoors in nature all the time." "I am sooo Independent." Took her 6 or 7 minutes to answer the question: How would you have voted on Kavanaugh? (No) McSally was less scripted, more off the cuff and seemed more real. McSally was more aggressive and wanted to mix it up more. Usually the more aggressive fighter wins in a close bout (See Trump). McSally walked over to Sinema to shake her hand at the end, that looked good. I give it...
