  • A Candidate Who Is Running Against The SUPER VERMIN Jerry Nadler

    We’ve got to support candidates who are running against the super vermin like Nadler. Cathy Bernstein is running against Nadler in the 10th District of NYC. I live in Florida and after watching the young lady describe the 10th District I am sending her a financial contribution. Her description of the New York 10th district is devastating. You should watch her 2 minute video and see for yourself.

    KTLA-TV ^ | Jul 13 2020 | Associated Press staff
    More than 100,000 mail-in ballots were rejected by election officials in California’s March presidential primary. The six-figure tally highlights the big gap in the effort to ensure every vote is counted, as a national dispute rages over the integrity of vote-by-mail elections. State data obtained by The Associated Press shows 102,428 mail-in ballots were disqualified in 58 counties, mostly because they arrived too late. Another 13,000 voters forgot to sign the ballot and canceled their own vote.

    Governor Pritzker and Mayor Lightfoot: I write to you today to call your attention to and urge action on the devastating violence in Chicago. I have been horrified by the continued violence in this great American city. The American people (hardworking taxpayers) send you millions of dollars in Federal funding each year to support public safety in Chicago. In 2018 and 2019, Chicago benefited from $136 million in funding from the Urban Area Security Initiative Grant Program, and another $68 million was recently announced for Chicago from this important program. The Department of Justice awarded and is in the process...
  • Action Alert: Stop [NM] Dems’ automatic mail-in ballot amendment that may open door to fraud (New Mexico special legislative session)

    🚨DEMOCRATS MAY BE TRYING TO STEAL OUR ELECTIONS AND YOUR HELP IS URGENTLY REQUESTED🚨 It was announced that the Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s bill (SB-4) to force through an all mail-in ballot election in 2020 would only get one committee assignment and it would be on the fast-track thanks to the Democrats’ dark-room deals and closed-off Legislative Session from the public. The Senate Rules Committee added a critical amendment to the bill redacting language forcing through the dangerous option for county clerks to automatically send absentee ballots to every voter in their county — stopping language that may have opened...

    Gotta say, I’d have had more sympathy for Roy Cooper in this situation two weeks ago. That would have been before the same people who scolded Republicans and conservatives who wanted to reopen the public square and demonstrate for those policies suddenly thought squeezing several thousand people into streets for demonstrations for a week on end was no problem at all. Political speech takes precedence over commerce, they have argued — so why does that not apply to a full political convention in August?North Carolina’s Democratic governor apparently thinks some political speech requires more planning than others: Governor Roy...

    The American Prospect ^ | 5-18-2020 | Alexander Sammon
    No matter how you slice it, what happened in last week’s special election for California’s 25th Congressional District was not good for Democrats. In resounding fashion, Democratic hopeful Christy Smith, a state assemblywoman from Santa Clarita, was beaten by Republican defense industry executive Mike Garcia. While ballots are still being counted in what was an almost all-mail-in election, recent tallies had Garcia, a Trump endorsee, trouncing Smith by a double-digit margin .... Smith conceded quickly. There are the coronavirus caveats. Stay-at-home orders meant low turnout, which favored Garcia: older, whiter, and more-affluent voters tend to vote by mail already and...

    YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- With about a year to go before the U.S. presidential election, Roy Mikolaj, a 53-year-old resident of the U.S. Midwest state of Ohio, already knows who will have his support in 2020 -- Donald Trump. Mikolaj is a registered Democrat. But in the previous election in 2016, he was one of the workers in the declining industrial area known as the "Rust Belt" who voted for Trump, a trend that propelled the Republican nominee to the White House after he campaigned to bring jobs back from U.S. trade partners such as China, Japan and Mexico. Following Trump's...

    The Brookings Institute ^ | November 1, 2019 | William A. Galston
    By a plurality of 48 to 44%, according to the latest poll averages, Americans favor impeaching President Trump and removing him from office. But, as we know, presidential elections are made in the electoral college on a state-by-state basis and senators are elected in this manner as well, which is why it is important to look at public opinion by state. According to a just-released New York Times/Siena College poll, sentiment in the swing states that will determine the winner of the 2020 presidential election differs from the national averages. Like other Americans, voters in these states support an impeachment...

    CNN Politics ^ | October 31, 2019 | Chris Cillizza, Editor-at-large
    During Game 7 of the World Series on Wednesday night, President Donald Trump's campaign launched a seven-figure national ad buy -- a 30-second commercial touting his first-term accomplishments on terrorism, the economy and immigration. But the real key to the ad -- and the bit that you need to pay very close attention to -- comes in the final moments of the commercial, when the narrator says this: "He's no Mr. Nice Guy. But sometimes it takes a Donald Trump to change Washington." Those two sentences are hugely telling when it comes to understanding how Trump (and his campaign) are...

    A year out from the 2020 general election, most Democrats are currently pessimistic about most of the candidates' abilities to defeat President Donald Trump, Insider polling shows. Out of seven weekly polls conducted over two months between mid-August and mid-October, there are just three candidates that more Democrats think would beat Trump than lose to Trump. Across the polls, 66% of Democratic respondents believed former Vice President Joe Biden could beat Trump, 54% believed Sen. Elizabeth Warren would beat Trump, and 49% believed Sen. Bernie Sanders would be able to defeat Trump. Biden and his team, in particular, have been...

    The Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | October 8, 2019 | Michelle Ye Hee Lee and Anu Narayanswamy, The Washington Post
    Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2015 had no pollster, rapid-response team or fundraiser. A bare-bones staff fueled by pizza and energy drinks toiled in a makeshift office at Trump Tower. His opponents vastly outspent him - and lost. But as president, Trump's campaign machine has dramatically escalated, powered by a historically large war chest of donations large and small that has given him a head start over the eventual Democratic nominee. At this point in the last election, Trump's campaign employed 19 consultants. Now, there are more than 200. When Trump had all but locked up the nomination by May...

    President Donald Trump has been building a commanding fund-raising lead nationally for the 2020 presidential campaign. That trend is mirrored in rural Pennsylvania, where the president received more in campaign contributions than the four leading Democrats combined. Trump’s reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee raised $125 million in the third quarter of the year, a presidential fundraising record, according to the Associated Press The Trump campaign said that it has raised more than $308 million in 2019. “The power of incumbency is a major, major advantage,” said Chris Borick, a political science professor at Muhlenberg College. Trump “is following...
