  • Fox News Pollster Braun Research Misrepresented Impeachment Poll: Analysis

    The New York Post ^ | 10/12/2019 | Mary Kay Linge
    The poll released last week by Fox News that claimed most Americans favor the impeachment of President Trump underrepresented Republicans and Independents, The Post has found. The poll said 51% of voters were in favor of impeachment and removal from office, while 40% did not want him impeached. Princeton New Jersey pollster Braun Research, which conducted the survey, noted 48% of its respondents were Democrats. But the actual breakdown of party affiliation is 31% Democrat, 29% Republican, and 38% Independent, according to Gallup. A poll weighted for party affiliation would have concluded that 44.9% favored impeachment and 44.4% oppose it,...

    The Republican Party is set to win a large majority of all future close presidential elections, even contests in which they lose the popular vote, according to a recent study. GOP candidates for president can expect to be victorious in 65 percent of future presidential elections and University of Texas at Austin researchers analyzed why "inversions" — where the popular vote winner loses the overall election — has happened twice since 2000. The study authors found that the Electoral College's winner-take-all approach favors Republicans and has pushed them to victories in 2000 and 2016. The researchers concluded that inversions will...

    Donald Trump may be the only candidate in U.S. history who could shrink the size of the federal government simply by swearing in as commander in chief. A poll of federal employees conducted by Government Business Council Jan. 20-26 found that a Trump victory may result in roughly 25 percent of the government's workforce quitting.
  • CNN Says It's Sexist To Scrutinize Elizabeth Warren's Lies

    Western Journal ^ | 10/82019 | Benjamin Arie
    It’s the media’s job to investigate and report the truth about important people and events — at least, it used to be. These days, it seems that following facts no matter where they lead has been replaced by progressive pandering. It’s hard to come to any other conclusion, especially after a jaw-dropping piece published by CNN on Wednesday. The left-leaning news network has essentially declared that questioning an unlikely story told by a female presidential candidate is sexist. Forget fact-checking and holding powerful people accountable; if a politician is the correct gender, they apparently get special treatment. “Warren pregnancy debate...

    This will be a weekly post. Count remains at 150 judges confirmed. 105 District Court judges 43 Circuit Court judges 2 Supreme Court justices Upon reconvening after a lengthy summer break, the Senate confirmed 6 judges that should have been confirmed in July. There have been none since. That's right. Only six judges since July! There are currently 16 district judges on the floor waiting for a vote. Enough with the breaks and recesses, Mitch.

    The front-running Democratic Presidential candidate who is pro-abortion up until the first breath sang a rendition of "Jesus Loves the Little Children" at CNN's LGBTQ Town Hall in Los Angeles on Thursday. Elizabeth Warren sang the song in defense of gay marriage. She did not apply the song or its lyrics to unborn children who are slaughtered relentlessly by Democrat-protected abortuaries and whose blood money fuels her campaign. The church I grew up in, the first song I remember singing, "Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight. Jesus Loves the little children of the world."...
  • ONE OF THE 'LARGEST RADICAL ANTI-GOV. GROUPS' IN U.S. WILL ESCORT GOP'ers AT TRUMP MINN. RALLY

    Republicans at President Donald Trump's rally in Minneapolis on Thursday will reportedly be escorted by a typically heavily armed group that has been called "one of the largest radical anti-government groups in the U.S. today." That is how the Southern Poverty Law Center describes the Oath Keepers, who refer to themselves as "guardians of the republic." On the group's website, it describes itself as a "non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders, who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to 'defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.'" The Oath...
  • Trump Campaign Rally in Minnesota the Opening Salvo of ‘Full-On Major Effort’ to Win State in 2020

    Breitbart ^ | 10 Oct 2019 | MICHAEL PATRICK LEAHY
    The Trump campaign rally in Minneapolis on Thursday marks the beginning of the presidential re-election campaign’s intense efforts to win the state of Minnesota in 2020. “It is a full-on major effort state campaign,” Trump campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh told the New York Times in a story published early Thursday morning. President Trump narrowly lost the state’s ten electoral college votes by about 44,000 votes in 2016, the best Republican showing in Minnesota since President Richard Nixon won the state in the 1972 presidential election. The Times reported in its Thursday story: Brad Parscale, the president’s campaign manager, is planning...

    The Anger of the Blinded Cyclops By now, knowledge of the persons and timeline involved in the Russia Hoax (to choose Gregg Jarrett’s phrase among many others) has seeped into the public’s admittedly shallow consciousness. Although they are at opposite poles of seriousness, the Russia Hoax is similar in some ways to the cast and events of The Bachelor. We don’t necessarily want or care to know who the Bachelor is and who he’s chosen but the PR engine, aided and abetted by a bored, cynical media, blasts the news far and wide until it’s nearly impossible not to know....

  • Can Donald Trump possibly win 45 states in 2020?

    WGNO-TV ^ | October 7, 2019 | CNN
    At a meeting of White House senior staff last week, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney made a bold prediction: If the House impeaches Donald Trump, he will win 45 states in his 2020 reelection race. Which is some kind of prediction! But could it, you know, actually happen? Well, start here: In 2016, Trump won 30 states as well as Maine’s second congressional district. (Maine apportions some of its electoral votes by House seat.) Meaning he needed to get 14 or 15 more in order to make Mulvaney look like a genius. That’s going to be VERY...

    This will be a weekly post. Count remains at 150 judges confirmed. 105 District Court judges 43 Circuit Court judges 2 Supreme Court justices Mitch is dragging his feet again. I gave him a break because he was getting a lot of executive positions confirmed. But since confirming the six nominees on September 11th (the six that SHOULD HAVE been confirmed in JUNE before the recess), there have been no further confirmations. My guess is that the Mitt Romney types are using impeachment to try to slow the conservative judicial juggernaut, with the retiring and anti-Trump senators helping him (Alexander,...

    On September 11th, at the beginning of the Senate's reconvening after their summer break, the Senate confirmed six judges that were supposed to be confirmed in June. There have been none since. Granted the Senate has been busy confirming other officials, but can still schedule votes on judges. We're watching, Mitch. Get your slow ass moving! I usually post on judges weekly, but will switch to daily to put the pressure on.
  • I'm a Young Black Activist in Georgia. I Don't See Voting As the Only Answer.

    I never thought about politics purely in the context of elections. When I was growing up in Georgia, my first exposure to inequity came through my lived experience of living in a majority Black area. My first exposure to fighting inequity came through reading books. I learned about the icons of Black grassroots organizing: civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., anti-rape activist Rosa Parks, workers rights champion Dorothy Bolden. What spoke to me was their commitment to door knocking, radical imagination, hard conversation, and deep care for people they had never met. To me, that looked like the most...

    An Arkansas woman who filed a paternity lawsuit against Joe Biden’s son Hunter claimed in court documents that Hunter “verbally admitted” to her that he is the father of her 1-year-old child. Lunden Roberts, 28, first filed the petition for paternity and support against 49-year-old Hunter in May. She has refused to comment publicly about the matter but said in court filings that Hunter acknowledged paternity of the child, according to the Daily Mail. In a motion for DNA testing filed in Independence County Circuit Court, through her lawyer Roberts alleged that “[Hunter] has verbally admitted to the plaintiff that...
