    CBS "News" ^ | August 20, 2018 | By CAITLIN CONANT
    The Republican National Committee raised $14.2 million in July -- the most it has ever raised in that month in a non-presidential year -- bringing its total haul for the cycle to $227.2 million. Despite historic odds and voter enthusiasm favoring Democrats, the RNC is finding record-setting support among its donors, according to numbers shared first with CBS News. The RNC raised more in July of this year than it did in 2010 and 2014 combined. After transferring 8 million dollars split evenly between the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) in July, the...

    New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, currently one of the leading lights of the Democrats’ left-wing, is on a tour of the West Coast -- but is notably avoiding meeting up with the region’s Hollywood elites. Ocasio-Cortez, who represents the party’s democratic socialist wing, has visited homeless areas on Los Angeles’ Skid Row neighborhood, and has met with liberal activists. But as she has held low-dollar fundraisers, she has not engaged in glitzy events with high-profile Democratic donors and Hollywood celebrities. The move has already raised eyebrows, with The Hollywood Reporter asking: “Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Too Far Left for Hollywood?”...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) — the official campaign arm of House Democrats — are pushing blatant misinformation in fundraising emails to supporters. “I will NOT allow Putin to set foot in the United States. I need 100,000 signatures to BLOCK his visit and keep our elections safe. I need you to sign before midnight,” Pelosi told Democratic voters in a DCCC fundraising email sent out on Sunday.

    An interested reader sent us the following panicky email from California's Gavin Newsom for Governor campaign.  Get a load: That's weird stuff, indeed, given the punditocracy's comfortable assertion that Republican John Cox, who's challenging Democrat Gavin Newsom for the governor's seat in California, hasn't got a snowball's chance in Death Valley of getting elected.  After all, isn't California the immutable blue state?  The state that will never vote red?  Don't Democrat voter registrations outnumber Republican registrations twenty to one?  The state with all those Democratic Party voter registrations, buttressed by its motor voter law, registering all comers, illegal or otherwise? Trump himself has repeatedly stated he...

    close Will Dems sacrifice themselves to oppose Supreme Court pick? House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sent out a dramatic, no-holds-barred fundraising email on Monday saying she is "determined to avenge President Obama if it’s the last thing I do" by premptively opposing President Trump's Supreme Court nominee. Pelosi, 78, is one of several top Democrats -- including Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.-- who already have announced that they oppose Trump's pick without knowing whom the president has selected. Schumer has said the Senate should not consider any Supreme Court nominees during an election year.

    By bizarrely going after Sam Harris, Majid Nawaaz, and others, the once venerable organization has abandoned its core mission, focusing instead on dirty partisan politics Shortly after the election of Donald Trump in November of 2016, a lot of people I knew wrote biggish checks to the Southern Poverty Law Center. They weren’t alone: According to tax filings, the group took in $136 million last year alone, bringing its total assets to a whopping half-a-billion dollars.This surge in the organization’s popularity makes sense: The SPLC, after all, is the group that had once, nearly four decades ago, protected Vietnamese shrimpers...

    A pro-Trump political action committee has filed a complaint with the FEC alleging the Hillary Clinton campaign laundered $84 million in contributions from big-name donors, such as Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, filmmaker Steven Spielberg, and designer Calvin Klein. The complaint outlines a money laundering scheme that violated multiple campaign finance laws, specifically laws related to limits on contributions by independent donors. As of this week, the complaint has escalated with a lawsuit urging the FEC to take action on the complaint which appears to have been largely ignored by the FEC since being filed in December of 2017. Using both civil...

    President Trump’s campaign for re-election in 2020 raked in $10 million for the first quarter of 2018, bringing the campaign’s total fundraising haul to $28 million, the campaign announced Sunday. Trump’s campaign had $22 million cash on hand by the end of 2017 and spent $3.9 million during the first quarter of 2018, Reuters reported. The president is also working with the Republican National Committee to raise money for GOP congressional candidates for the 2018 midterm elections. The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) hauled in a record $85 million in campaign cash in the off-year election cycle ahead of the...

    The Democratic Party is carrying more than $6 million in debt, according to year-end filings — and has just $6.5 million in the bank. Do the math, and the party is working with just over $400,000 overall. Meanwhile, the Republicans are swimming in pools of money. The Republican National Committee had raised $132 million by the end of 2017 — about twice as much as the DNC — and entered 2018 with almost $40 million to spare, with

    The economy is booming, the tax reform package has spurred over 250 companies to dole out bonuses to some three million workers, more employee investments are coming, more jobs are projected to be created, and charitable donations are expected to increase from companies thanks to Trump’s tax bill. Apple’s repatriation of $250 billion, part of their $350 billion investments back into America over a five-year period is projected to create 20,000 jobs in the process. We've reached a new era, one of economic prosperity, which is what President Trump emphasized during the State of the Union Tuesday.President Trump spoke of...

    In an attempt to rejuvenate the beleaguered Democratic party, DNC national chairman Tom Perez announced $10 million for state parties in hopes that the surge of cash would help rebuild the party after embarrassing 2016 losses across the board against the GOP. Yet, many state leaders are now worried that that money is never going to actually come, reports Vice News. “What our fear is, is that no matter how high this wave is in 2018, that we won’t have the ability to take advantage of that and win governors races, congressional races, and state legislative races that would normally...

    I answered a phone call today from the Democrat Congressional Fundraising Committee, trying to raise money to swing the 2018 congressional elections to the Democrats. (It was not my phone). I proceeded to explain that I just found out that the money I gave to Hillary and the Democrat Campaign went along with the $10 million to pay for the fake corrupt dossier and I will never give to anyone other than directly to candidates. I acted very disappointed and furious at what they had done with my money.(I told a fib as there is no way I ever gave...
  • BUSTED: Elizabeth Warren’s CFPB Used Secret “Slush Fund” To Funnel Billions Into Left-Wing Causes

    Was the real reason behind Senator Elizabeth Warren’s outrage over Mick Mulvaney’s appointment as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) about her own political survival? The New York Post’s Paul Sperry reports that the CFPB is engaged in a wide-variety of corruption. Everything from amassing secret ledgers to using penalties to ‘launder,’ funds into left-wing causes. Of course, because the CFPB operates independently of the U.S. Government, a full audit of the agency’s balance sheet have never been done. This sad reality may very well change under Mulvaney’s leadership.

    President Barack Obama collected some big bucks Thursday night at a star-studded fund-raiser in the New York home of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. Among the guests: actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband, Coldplay singer Chris Martin; comedian Jimmy Fallon, designer Vera Wang, singer Alicia Keys, and Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who co-hosted the event. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was also there as the guests packed around five tables in a basement room. Hundreds of people awaited the president's arrival on the streets of the West Village near the Weinstein residence, a multi-story brick row house. Weinstein said he had...

    The Democratic National Committee, in dire financial straits due to lackluster fundraising this year, had its worst August raising money in a decade. Figures reported to the FEC on Wednesday night show not only a major drop-off in cash for the Democrats, but also a substantial increase in the party's debt. Washington Free Beacon: 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....

    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...

    The Democratic National Committee could be leading the resistance against Trump, but it can't get out of its own way. In theory, the Democrats should be in a great position. Donald Trump has a 35 percent approval rating. The president's disdain for his Republican in the House and the Senate is making it difficult for him to pass major legislation and causing a rift within the GOP. There are more Democratic candidates preparing to run for House seats than any time in recent memory. And though Democrats have lost some high-profile special elections in 2017, they've done well in lesser...

    The Republican National Committee (RNC) expanded its massive fundraising lead over the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in July as the Democrats posted their worst July haul in a decade. The DNC raised just $3.8 million in July, compared to the $10.2 million raised by the RNC in the same month. While the GOP has no debt, the DNC added slightly to its debt in July, which now sits at $3.4 million. The Democrats haven't raised that little money in a July since 2007; the party raised $3.4 million in that month. The Hill obtained the RNC's fundraising numbers ahead of...

    The Democratic National Committee is jumping into the ongoing waves of protests that have followed Saturday’s events in Charlottesville, launching a #RiseAndOrganize campaign to direct activists toward electoral politics. “In addition to calling on Republicans to denounce Trump, the next step is getting people to commit to vote,” explained DNC chief executive Jess O’Connell. “This is a galvanizing moment.” The DNC has spent weeks on a “Resistance Summer” campaign, one of several simultaneous national efforts to galvanize protesters and get them working on achievable political wins. The #RiseAndOrganize campaign, explained O’Connell, would involve Democrats finding the best opportunities to grill...
