    Politico ^ | 10/22/17 | GABRIEL DEBENEDETTI, EDWARD-ISAAC DOVERE
    LAS VEGAS — The Democratic National Committee is reeling, facing a turnaround that's proving a much bigger lift than anyone expected as it struggles to raise enough money to cover its basic promises. Many donors are refusing to write checks. And on-the-ground operatives worry they won’t have the resources to build the infrastructure they need to compete effectively in next year’s midterms and in the run-up to 2020. Here in the halls of Bally's hotel and casino for the DNC's fall meeting through the weekend, state committee chairs and operatives echoed a now-common concern among donors and strategists: The DNC's...

    President Trump is wondering who paid for the controversial dossier that made salacious but unverified claims about his ties to Russia a day after two executives from a Washington research firm that helped produce the document refused to answer questions in a private meeting with the House Intelligence Committee
  • REVEALED: Harvey Weinstein Paid for Bill Clinton’s Legal Fees During Monica Lewinsky Scandal

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | 10/15/17 | Joshua Caplan
    When Bill Clinton was at the height of the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal, Hollywood was by his side, offering donations for his legal fees, and one significant donor was a man who is now going through his own sex scandal—Harvey Weinstein. More than 20 women have publicly accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, sexual assault or rape. After the New York Times and the New Yorker published in-depth stories detailing the testimonies of women who have been abused by Weinstein—and in many cases, paid off with airtight non-disclosure agreements—the stories have continued to come to light. Former President Bill Clinton is...

    Chelsea Clinton fled to her car to avoid answering questions from a DailyMail.com reporter on Saturday about whether the Clinton Foundation will return up to $250,000 in donations from accused rapist Harvey Weinstein. The former first daughter, who is a board member of the Clinton Foundation, ran from questions while she was attending a Clinton Global Initiative University event in Northeastern University in Boston. The night before, Clinton Foundation press officials blocked a DailyMail.com reporter attempting to approach Bill Clinton to ask him questions at a public event.

    Hillary Clinton said in a CNN interview Wednesday that she was “sick” and “shocked” to learn of sexual misconduct allegations against Hollywood mogul and longtime Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein, adding she will give away his past contributions to her political campaigns to charity. “I was appalled,” Clinton said of the accusations. “It was something that was just intolerable in every way. And, you know, like so many people who’ve come forward and spoken out, this was a different side of a person who I and many others had known in the past.” Speaking to Fareed Zakaria as part of her...

The actress, who was briefly suspended from Twitter yesterday evening, accused Bezos of “funding rapists, alleged pedos and sexual harassers” in a furious tweestorm. She also claimed to have told the head of Amazon’s studio that Weinstein had rap

    Neocon and fake Republican Bill Kristol’s wife Susan donated to far-left Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam this past August, a GotNews review of Virginia public donation records reveals. According to the Virginia Public Access Project, Susan S. Kristol of McLean, Virginia donated $200 to Northam for Governor on August 24th, 2017, her only donation to any candidate running in the state this year. Mrs. Kristol is listed as a non-wage earner, but apparently has enough cash lying around to bankroll left-wing candidates.

    The New York Times ^ | October 7, 2017 | KENNETH P. VOGEL
    It started as a scrappy grass-roots protest movement against President Trump, but now the so-called resistance is attracting six- and seven-figure checks from major liberal donors, posing an insurgent challenge to some of the left’s most venerable institutions — and the Democratic Party itself. The jockeying between groups, donors and operatives for cash and turf is occurring mostly behind the scenes. But it has grown acrimonious at times, with upstarts complaining they are being boxed out by a liberal establishment that they say enables the sort of Democratic timidity that paved the way for the Trump presidency.[snip]And an advocacy group...

    Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein will be hosting a star-studded fundraiser for Hillary Clinton on Monday night in New York City. The Democratic donor, who owns the Hamptons house next door to the $50,000-a-week vacation home the Clintons rented last summer, has already maxed out to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and contributed up to $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation. His latest favor for his Hamptons pal will be hosting the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, and climate change hero Leonardo DiCaprio at his Manhattan home for a fundraiser benefitting the Hillary Victory Fund, according to the...

    RUSH: Let me ask you a question. Do you think a major conservative Republican fat cat donor would have been able to keep secret eight different sexual harassment settlements? You think they would have been able to keep that out of the media for decades? Just remember what all has happened at Fox News in recent years and compare that to what’s happening here with Harvey Weinstein of Weinstein Pictures and prior to that Miramax. It’s astounding to look at two comparisons. It ought not be astounding because we all ought to know by now, but the thing that makes...

    RUSH: Try this headline from the Washington Times: “NFL Players’ Union Teamed Up With Soros to Fund Leftist Advocacy Groups.” Folks, do not ever doubt me. When this whole protest the anthem thing began, I told you that left-wing activist groups were behind it, that they were running the players on this. It was how you get the players to take action that is actually harming the NFL when the players think that they are acting in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick in protesting the cops. That’s not what they were doing. They were inflicting damage on the NFL. And even...

    Governor Bruce Rauner has stabbed conservatives in the back—again. But much worse, he has ensured that thousands more babies will be killed in the womb every year in Illinois, and taxpayers will pay for their deaths. Despite his commitment to veto HB 40, which requires taxpayers to fund the intentional killing of humans in utero—including healthy humans of any gestational age—through Medicaid and state employee insurance plans, Rauner is signing it into law. This is the same man who during the gubernatorial campaign told IFA that he believes life begins at conception. Claiming that life begins at conception and then...

    The Democratic National Committee's already dire financial standing worsened during the month of August, according to its Wednesday night filing to the FEC. The DNC raised just $4.4 million last month, the second lowest August fundraising figure for the party in the past decade. The party had less cash on hand at the end of the month than it did at the beginning, as its spending outpaced its fundraising by $44,575. And it gets worse. The DNC's debt substantially increased ... Party officials predicted in August that DNC fundraising figures would start to turn around, explaining that its fundraising staff...

    Hillary Clinton — the same Hillary Clinton who spent her campaign months talking up the dangers of “dark money” in politics — was just outed for moving about $800,000 of the cash stashed for her presidential run to ANTIFA groups. Pardon, Ms. Clinton, the bluntness of the question. But isn’t that “dark money?” Apparently, Clinton’s been busy using her “Onward Together” Super-PAC dough to back resistance movements around the United States. The Gateway Pundit has more: In building investigations, Daily Caller first discovered that Hillary transferred a mass sum of money from her campaign over to Onward Together: Clinton transferred...

    Hillary Clinton’s political group, “Onward Together,” sent out a fundraising email on Wednesday discussing Clinton’s gardening activities with her granddaughter and informing supporters that Clinton’s mood is “pretty concerned” but “okay. snip “But as a person, I’m okay. It’s nice to be able to spend so much time at home with Bill and our dogs, and to catch up with friends I haven’t seen in a while.” The email is titled “peas and peppers” — all lower case. The “peas and peppers” title refers to time Clinton says she is spending gardening with her granddaughter.
