  • New York Republicans Just Made History in AG Race

    05/25/2018 5:55:06 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 28 replies ^ | May 25, 2018 | Cortney O'Brien
    New York Republicans just made history by pick their first ever black Attorney General nominee. The candidate, Manhattan attorney Keith Wofford, is seeking to fill the vacant post after Democrat Eric Schneiderman resigned over domestic violence reports. "Voters are going to recognize that any machine candidate will lack credibility to clean up collusion and corruption in the government,” Wofford told the Wall Street Journal. “It’s not about party affiliation. It’s about who can do the job.”Wofford, who was raised in Buffalo, is a Harvard Law School graduate and currently the co-managing partner of the New York City office of the law...

    The White House is planning a separate meeting for bipartisan House and Senate leaders to receive classified information related to the Russia investigation, bowing to pressure over a decision to exclude Democrats from a highly anticipated Thursday briefing. White House spokesman Raj Shah said the group, known as the Gang of Eight, will huddle with officials representing the Justice Department, law enforcement and intelligence “following the Memorial Day recess.” The plans, which were first reported by ABC News, were also confirmed to The Hill by a congressional source. Shah said in a statement that Thursday’s planned meeting with only House...

    By one key measure, it is now official: This is the most authoritarian Congress in history. The House Rules Committee, meeting in its ornate chamber on the third floor of the Capitol on Monday night, sent two bills to the House floor under “closed” rules — that is, legislation that must be rubber stamped in toto, without being amended by so much as a comma. That brings the number of closed rules in this Congress to 84, beating the previous record of 83 set in 2014, according to the Democrats’ tally (a Republican tally counts one fewer). And here’s the...
  • The GOP's Fear Factor

    When President Franklin D. Roosevelt famously said, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself," he could not have foreseen today's Republican Party. A bill authored by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) that would require the federal government to balance the budget each year was soundly defeated last week in the Senate. Even Paul admitted he thought the bill had no chance, but he told the Washington Post his purpose was to point out Republican hypocrisy. Paul accused his Republican colleagues of engaging in an "unholy alliance" with Democrats to keep increasing spending, thereby adding to the deficit and...

    Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison said at a Democratic event Monday that Republicans doing “Bible studies” in prisons is hurting Democrats’ chances at winning voters. “You know, back when I was in Minnesota State Legislature, I got the impression that maybe Democrats could possibly have an advantage with folks in this area who might vote for us,” Ellison said. “Not true. We will have to fight for their vote like we do with every other vote because I learned that a lot of Republicans will go to jails and do Bible studies and other things.”

    It’s great to be an incumbent Republican. You can break your promises to voters, vote to massively increase government spending, and time and time again sell out the conservative base — and for the most part, you don’t need to worry about losing a Republican primary election.

    A top nonpartisan political crowdfunding site on Tuesday cut ties with its CEO, a Fox News weekend host, and temporarily suspended all fundraising on its platform for Republican candidates. In a post, entitled “A stand against Trumpism, a stand for democracy,” Crowdpac, a for-profit website that helps candidates raise money online, announced a series of major changes including the departure of founder and CEO Steve Hilton, acknowledging that his vocal advocacy for President Donald Trump “created a tension within our platform and community.” “We’ve heard from many quarters of the Crowdpac community that, in light of Steve Hilton’s political...
  • NYT Op-Ed: Liberals, You’re Not As Smart As You Think, And You’re Helping Trump Win A Second Term

    Well, someone finally said it: Liberals, you’re not as smart as you think—and you’re helping Donald J. Trump win a second term. Gerard Alexander, a political science professor at the University of Virginia, wrote this in The New York Times and he might have to change his name after this. He aptly noted how a) cultural centers are dominated by progressives; b) how they’re causing a backlash against liberalism; and c) how their inability to see that they are causing it will lead to a Trump victory in the next presidential election. The professor noted how the Left is overly...

    mass shooting of congressional Republicans... many lawmakers are mad, or frustrated, or saddened, at how quickly the story disappeared from the headlines given that the shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, targeted Republicans... Hodgkinson carried a list of names of lawmakers in his pocket: ... The list included their office numbers and short physical descriptions. He’d recorded video of the field in April of of that year — a sign, the prosecutor wrote in his official report, that Hodgkinson “had already selected Simpson field as a potential target as early as April 2017.” His social media was filled with Bernie and anti-Republican...

    Folks, forget the pollsters, forget the pundits, the Democrat Party is going to get devastated in defeat in the United States Senate. The "Blue Wave" never was and, never will be. Here's the real world of Senate Democrats in trouble today, and, I believe it will get worse for the Democrat Party as time marches on toward Mid-Term election day in November. In trouble Democrat Senate candidates: - Bill Nelson - Joe Donnelly - Tina Smith - Claire McCaskill - Jon Testor - Heidi Heitkamp - Sherrod Brown - Bob Casey - Tammy Baldwin - Joe Manchin - Elizabeth Warren...

    Associated Press ^ | May 8, 2018 07:17 PM | Jonathan J. Cooper
    In the race for California governor, two Republicans have shunned the center and are running to the right in a bloody fight for a segment of the electorate that loves President Donald Trump and loathes Democrats who have proudly committed to being his foil. Democrats dominate California’s government and far outnumber Republicans in the state. But Assemblyman Travis Allen and businessman John Cox haven’t altered their messages to try to appeal to them in a June 5 primary where every registered voter can cast a ballot for any candidate. Eight years ago California voters rewrote the state’s election laws so...

    What a week for President Trump! We have North and South Korea making peace, with the North promising to give up its nukes – something unimaginable for past administrations, those filled with diplomatic wizards like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John Kerry. This announcement is on the heels of a successful state visit by French president Emmanuel Macron and Mike Pompeo's confirmation as secretary of state. The economy is humming along with record low unemployment, particularly benefiting blacks and Hispanics, in a way that Democrat policies never allowed for. Rap superstar Kanye West, much to the dismay of the left,...

    Last week, Twitchy covered Kanye West tweeting that he couldn’t be a conservative because he hadn’t done enough research into what it means to be one. Sounds fair? Well today, to prove that he’s doing his homework perhaps, Kanye shared multiple texts on Twitter showing different viewpoints on the history of Republicans. And it’s fascinating. We’re going to guess Democrats would not like Kanye tweeting , but it’s the reality of the Democratic Party.

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich hinted again Sunday at a possible 2020 presidential run by ripping the Republican Party and declaring “I can bring that party back.” The Republican governor accused the GOP of being “anti-immigrant, anti-trade, in favor of debt,” and implored party members to “come home.” “We should care about people from top to bottom, not just at those at the top but everybody,” Mr. Kasich told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I can bring that party back, that’s what I’m going to do, in one way or another.”

    Michelle Wolf has left a gift of, a massive catch of low life, political fodder, street trash, & politically correct filth & verbal vermin, that RNC Chairman, Ronna McDaniel can edit and wisely turn into cutting edge, effective, meaningful, political ads to widely used in the upcoming mid-term elections. Thanks, to the buffoon, White House Correspondents & most especially that brainless woman from CNN that heads up the WHCD. Ronna, and her talented staff, with great creative imagination, can turn out tons of successful, informative ads with the "garbage one liners" that Ms. Wolf spit out. The question is: Do...
