  • Rick Scott vs Bill Nelson for Senate

    06/23/2018 12:18:12 AM PDT · by Doreener · 24 replies
    Rick Scott is the current Republican Governor of Florida. He was first elected governor in 2010 and was re-elected in 2014. Governor Scott has led the charge to get Florida back to work over the past eight years. Scott was ranked as the 20th most conservative of the country's 30 Republican governors in an April 2013 analysis by Nate Silver of the New York Times. Prevented by term limits from running for governor again, Scott is seeking election to the U.S. Senate as a FL US senate republican candidate. Gov. Scott entered the race on April 9, 2018, posing the...
  • Democratic Congressional Candidate: Trump's Win Felt Like The 9/11 Terror Attacks

    When you venture into these two areas while making a political point, it’s guaranteed that it’ll blow up in your face: Saying x, y, or z is like Hitler, or making any Nazi reference, and describing any event that you didn’t like as devastating as the 9/11 terror attacks. No, unless you’re specifically talking about Nazis from history or neo-Nazis, their loser counterparts, then nothing outside of those who espouse the race-based National Socialism is like the Nazis. And unless it’s a legitimate terror attack in which the carnage is beyond description, then nothing is as devastating as September 11....
  • Rep. Cummings cries for the children locked in cages: ‘We are better than that!’

    The Baltimore Post-Examiner ^ | June 20, 2018 | Michael Olesker
    We’ve seen Rep. Elijah Cummings in full emotional outcry before this. He was there, in the streets of his West Baltimore home district, in the televised riots that followed the death of Freddie Grey a few years ago, when tears ran down Cummings’ face and he begged America to understand the plight of young and impoverished black men. And now we see him pleading for some sense of humanity over the lives of young immigrant children, frightened and weeping, separated from their parents over America’s “zero tolerance” at the U.S. border. Cummings is man whose conscience is always on full...
  • Good Morning: Colonel assures audience ‘man is still the best computer’

    “Man Still The Best Computer, Colonel Tells S.V. Rotary Club,” -The amazing properties of the new super-digital computer system which STRATCOM has contracted to have installed at Fort Huachuca were outlined by Col. Albert E. Haines, director of computer systems at the Fort, when he spoke to Rotarians here Monday. “The new computer system has the capacity to receive, store, compare, manipulate, and record results of 600 million bits of information,” Col. Haines said. Col. Haines assured those attending that man was the first and still is the greatest data processor. June 19, 1968 “At Long Last In Sight-Community Swimming...
  • Brad Parscale Launches a Website Trumpeting the Boss' Accomplishments (Trump 2020)

    The San Antonio Current ^ | June 7, 2018 | Sanford Nowlin
    San Antonio web designer-turned-Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale's latest promo effort for the president is ripped straight from the boss' playbook of brazen braggadocio. Parscale has announced the launch of promiseskept.com, a website intended to present a "robust record" of the administration's "growing portfolio of accomplishments" — everything from rescinding DACA and backing out of the U.N. climate-change agreement to telling those pesky Iranians to go f**k themselves. (Notably absent were mentions of the size of the prez's hands and his hyperbole-laced checkup from White House doc Ronny "Now I'm the One Being Probed" Jackson. But, hey, it's a...

    Lawmakers would bring students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to Capitol Hill for the summer. Student survivors of gun violence descended on Washington en masse earlier this year during the massive March for Our Lives on March 24. Now some lawmakers would like to bring them back for an entire summer. House Democrats are inviting students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida — who survived a mass school shooting in February — to come intern in their offices, working on gun violence prevention....
  • Three former first ladies condemn Trump border policy

    NBC News ^ | June 18, 2018 | Jane C. Timm and Alex Seitz-Wald
    Hillary Clinton said, "Jesus Christ said, 'Suffer the little children unto me' not 'let the little children suffer.'" Three former first ladies — Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama — have stepped out their political retirement to condemn the Trump administration's practice of separating parents and children at the border while parents are prosecuted for illegally entering the country. Speaking at a women's group in New York City on Monday, Clinton called family separation "an affront to our values" and said she had warned Trump's immigration policy would lead to this during her 2016 presidential campaign against him. And...

    The Politico ^ | June 17, 2018 | Brent D. Griffiths
    President Donald Trump attacked Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Sunday, saying the New York Democrat was wrong when he criticized the president's historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as "all hat and no cattle." "Thank you Chuck, but are you sure you got that right? No more nuclear testing or rockets flying all over the place, blew up launch sites," the president wrote on Twitter. "Hostages already back, hero remains coming home & much more!" Schumer, in a speech on the Senate floor on Wednesday, questioned just what the U.S. gained from the summit. “The summit...

    Vox ^ | June 16, 2018 | Laura McGann
    Democrats agree that Donald Trump’s history of bragging about groping and assaulting women is unacceptable, but they don’t agree about how to deal with it in 2020. The tension has spilled into the open in the ongoing debate about Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s role in galvanizing Senate Democrats to call for Sen. Al Franken to step down over misconduct. Even white college-educated women, Hillary Clinton’s biggest supporters, are divided. “We loved him,” Marsha Pearcy, 58, said sadly to Gillibrand at a private event for professional women in Washington on Tuesday night. Pearcy barely finished saying Franken’s name when quiet murmurs and...

    CBS News ^ | June 10, 2018 | Lesley Stahl
    Tonight you will hear from the man President Donald Trump appointed as his 2020 re-election campaign manager. His name is Brad Parscale, and he got the job because - as we first reported in October - Parscale was the president's secret weapon in his 2016 run for the White House. 42-year-old Parscale was one of the campaign's top decision-makers, operating largely out of public view. He was hired to run the digital team, but over time he came to oversee advertising, data collection and much of the fund-raising. He says his main task was competing with the Clinton Campaign's huge...

    The Atlantic ^ | June 15, 2018 | Peter Beinart
    The Singapore summit actually made the world a safer place. The president’s critics won’t admit it. For congressional Democrats, it’s payback time. Ever since 2015, when Barack Obama struck a nuclear deal with Iran, prominent Republicans—including Donald Trump and his top foreign policy advisers—have accused Obama and his Democratic supporters of, in Mike Pompeo’s words, “surrender.” They’ve accused Obama of signing a deal that doesn’t meaningfully restrain Iran’s nuclear ambitions and, by seeking a warmer relationship with its regime, of betraying Iran’s long-suffering people. The irony, therefore, is nearly irresistible. In his nuclear summit this week in Singapore, Trump gave...

    A company run by former officials at Cambridge Analytica, the political consulting firm brought down by a scandal over how it obtained Facebook users’ private data, has quietly been working for President Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election effort, The Associated Press has learned. The AP confirmed that at least four former Cambridge Analytica employees are affiliated with Data Propria, a new company specializing in voter and consumer targeting work similar to Cambridge Analytica’s efforts before its collapse. The company’s former head of product, Matt Oczkowski, leads the new firm, which also includes Cambridge Analytica’s former chief data scientist. Oczkowski denied a...
  • President Trump's Place in the History of the Struggle for Liberty.

    06/15/2018 9:33:04 AM PDT · by Ozguy1945 · 2 replies
    Fellow Citizens of Freedom, America’s Founding Fathers imbued the nation with a deep seated understanding of and passion for Liberty that is an inspiration to the world. As an Australian active in 1945 commemoration in Indonesia, a nation which won independence in that year, I am a huge admirer of Douglas MacArthur. In an open letter to President Trump, I examine America’s enduring spirit of freedom and linked capacity for self-examination and redirection. I hope you will read my letter at the blog (https://freedom-demokrasi-and-civilised-humanity.com/2018/06/15/open-letter-to-the-leader-of-the-free-world-our-common-heritage-defending-freedom-today/) and discuss it here.

    Market Watch ^ | June 15, 2018 | Robert Schroeder
    President Donald Trump said Friday he won’t sign an immigration bill that doesn’t fund a border wall, as he told journalists a Justice Department report showed “total bias” against him and announced tariffs on China. NO BILL WITHOUT WALL In an interview on Fox News, Trump said he wouldn’t sign an immigration bill that doesn’t fund his proposed border wall. Votes on immigration bills are likely in the House next week, but it’s unclear whether a bill backed by GOP leaders has enough votes to pass. Trump said he wouldn’t sign the “more moderate one” crafted by House Speaker Paul...

    Most American adults say that the meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un was a good idea, according to a Monmouth poll released Thursday. The seven-in-10 who say it's a good idea is up from 63% in late April, including 93% of Republicans, 74% of independents, and 49% of Democrats. Only 20% say it was a bad idea. The recent poll also shows 46% disapprove of the job Trump is doing as President, perhaps a side effect of the good feelings people have about his efforts on North Korea. The last time Trump's number for...

    KSWT-TV ^ | June 14, 2018 | Marc Rod, CNN
    Sen. John McCain implicitly criticized President Donald Trump on Thursday for "parroting" North Korean and Chinese rhetoric about US-South Korean joint military exercises following the summit between Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un earlier this week. "Parroting Chinese and North Korean propaganda by saying joint exercises are 'provocative' undermines our security and alliances," the Arizona Republican said in a statement. McCain's statement did not specifically mention Trump in relation to the word "provocative," but Trump had used the words "provocative" and "war games" to describe the joint military exercises at a press conference in Singapore....

    Republican strategist Steve Schmidt said Sunday that President Trump “beclowned himself” and disgraced the United States at the Group of Seven (G-7) summit. “From his slovenly appearance to his unpreparedness, ignorance and arrogance, he beclowned himself,” tweeted Schmidt, one of the loudest GOP critics of Trump. “The Republican majority is filled with cowards who are servile supplicants to the most unfit POTUS ever.”(continued)

    Mitt Romney addressed a closed-door tech summit in Utah on Thursday, telling the room he thinks President Donald Trump -- the man he once called a “phony” and a “fraud” -- will “solidly” win re-election in 2020, reports said. Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, now running for a U.S. Senate seat in Utah, told a group of GOP donors that Trump will “easily” be the party’s nominee and go on to beat his Democratic rival, Politico reported. "I think that not just because of the strong economy and the fact that people are going to see increasingly rising wages, but...
