    Breitbart ^ | October 16, 2018 | John Nolte
    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.
  • Will Carlos Gimenez’s construction firm ties taint the FIU bridge collapse criminal probe?

    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...

    The Hill ^ | 10 16 2018 | Julia Manchester
    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...

    Townhall.com ^ | October 16, 2018 | John Dempsey
    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 Times ^ | 10/15/18 | Olivia Neeley
    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...

  • Now Is The Time For All Good Women To Come To The Aid Of Their Country

    10/15/2018 7:49:28 AM PDT · by Richard William I · 5 replies
    And, by Good Women, I am referring to all those ladies who are not so extremist that they would believe that other women cannot lie, and would rather not replace the  Constitution with radical uncaring, unfeeling womananity (unfeminine Feminism). At one time we called men who were so gendercentric  "Male Chauvinist Pigs." Maledom  has been so demeaned by the modern culture in the media, academia, Hollywood, and especially the Democrat Party, that it is a wonder that there are any males still associated with the Dems. This is why there is a record number of women running for elected office,...

His win goal is to try to impeach President Trump. He brags that his impeachment list is bigger than the NRA list. Those three individuals are trying to buy our government in this process.

    The Chicago Sun-Times ^ | October14, 2018 | Rachel Hinton
    Democratic allies gathered downtown Saturday for Chicago’s latest Women’s March, with organizers pushing for participants to help get out the vote ahead of next month’s midterm elections. Organized as a nonprofit — and not specifically endorsing candidates — the group Women’s March Chicago is bankrolled by Democrats and Democratic supporters. Major donors include the Chicago Federation of Labor and Democratic governor candidate J.B. Pritzker’s campaign. Several thousand took part in Saturday’s march and rally, which was the third Women’s March through Chicago. It was a far cry from the roughly 250,000 who marched through the city shortly after President Donald...

    Fortune ^ | October 10, 2018 | Matt Cartwright and Tom Perez
    On Nov. 6, Americans will vote in one of the most important elections in our lifetime. Companies and their employees have a significant stake in the outcome. But too many people still say they don’t vote because they are too busy or their schedule won’t allow it.We’ve seen this before. In November 2016, about 40% of eligible voters did not cast a ballot. Some made a conscious decision not to go to the polls on Election Day. But many of these voters simply didn’t have a choice. Around half of states do not require employers to give employees paid leave...

    Everywhere the opposition has ads poured out about how heartless the evil, mean Republicans are. They want to take healthcare away from poor, poor people with preexisting illnesses. All they care about are big corporate insurance companies. They are dirty, and bought and payed for by them. If you are a good and decent person with any kind of heart at all you will vote for the good and decent Democrat, who cares about people and doesn't want to kill them. Besides, really frightening, is the possibility that you or someone you care about could be, or eventually become one...

Where was that attitude when they were predicting Trump to lose in 2016? 28,607 CALLS on this poll. 593 responses. Marsha Blackburn, the Republican candidate, leads our poll.

    Hollywood has always been a reliable source of contributions to Democratic Party politicians and organizations, but perhaps never so more than the 2018 election cycle. Of the more than $4 million in federal donations made by the top Hollywood executives and entertainers, 99.7 percent went to Democrats and Democratic-leaning political action committees or organizations, according to a Hollywood Reporter data review of Federal Election Commission records. Only three members of this year's THR 100 list donated to Republicans or Republican committees: Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels donated $5,000 to moderate Republican Sen. Susan Collins; WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey gave...
