  • New GOP Super PAC Follows Tired Anti-Trump Blueprint

    Well the mainstream press is certainly excited. The giddy missives are still being published across the news spectrum as the announcement has gone out, courtesy of Axios, that there is another conservative political action committee formed to combat President Trump. This latest strongarm effort is called The Right Side PAC, and it is touted as being formed by former GOP operatives and influential Republican figures. Yea...hardly. This newest crank outfit is headed up by Matt Borges, the former head of the Ohio GOP. Borges has long been embattled with Trump and his influence can be summed up by the fact that...
  • Michael Bloomberg Isn’t Really Running For President, And That Should Worry You

    The staff, the ad spending, the campaigning -- Michael Bloomberg was going to do all of this to defeat President Donald Trump already. Doing it as a 'candidate' excempts him from limits on PACs and political donations. There is very good reason to believe Michael Bloomberg isn’t actually running for president.Of course, there is plenty of evidence to the contrary. For one, he declared he is. He’s also hired more than 1,000 staff and is still expanding, offering salaries far above campaign averages. This week, he became the first of the declared candidates to have campaigned in all 14 states...
  • Sanders: We need to put an end to all this dark money, except, of course, for my PAC

    Running a presidential campaign takes money. A lot of money. But candidates frequently find themselves in a bind because it has to be the right sort of money. And with laws allowing your opponents to scrutinize almost all of the cash coming in the door, you’re left open to criticism if you take “bad money” from “bad people.” Enter Bernie Sanders. He’s got a solution for that problem, particularly when it comes to all of that “dark money” that comes in from PACs and Super PACs. Those dollars frequently come from unnamed sources, particularly since the Supreme Court’s decision in...
  • The MSM IS the DNC -- isn't it breaking election/campaign financing laws?

    Yes, most of the MSM has always been to the left, but there used to be some daylight between the two. In the last 5 to 10 years, though, it's simply merged with the DNC. Right now much of the time, you can't even tell the MSM's "straight news" on Trump and politics from opinion pieces. Even before seeing the classified memo, the MSM were calling its release "political" and defending Dems. They automatically take the DNC position, and that includes when they pushed the DNC line on "Russia" and pushes for Trump's impeachment though Mueller investigation has uncovered nothing.
  • Election Law Violation Was Hillary’s Idea

    Election Law Violation Was Hillary’s Idea Orders to use Donald Duck to foment violence at Trump rallies came straight from the top. Democrat Hillary Clinton personally authorized illegal dirty tricks operations against Republican Donald Trump’s campaign, according to top Democrats appearing in undercover video. In the third Hillary-related video released by ACORN slayer James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas Action Fund this past Sunday (Oct. 23), Clinton is directly implicated in a scheme to use Donald Duck to mock Trump and troll his supporters at Trump campaign rallies. Among Disney cartoon characters Donald Duck was a natural choice. After all,...
  • Obama PACs Bus Protesters To GOP Town Halls

    The Daily Caller ^ | February 12, 2017 | By Phillip Stucky
    Political action committees that fundraised for President Barrack Obama during the 2012 presidential election, bused protesters to Republican town hall events nationwide earlier in February, according to a Sunday report from The Washington Post. Democrats nationwide continue to search for ways to oppose President Donald Trump after the 2016 election, and they are digging deep into funding from years ago. An unnamed pro-Obama super PAC organized protests at several town halls, going so far as busing protesters outside the member’s districts. Since super PACS were legalized in the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision, this marks the first time that...

    Danny JohnstonDecember 20, 2016 Clio Chang and Alex Shephard write in The New Republic about the organizational shake-up and shift in focus at the leftwing media watchdog Media Matters for America. The brainchild of its Clinton ally founder David Brock, Media Matters now seeks to reinvent itself in a post-Clinton world. Brock has recently stated that he hopes to transform his social media platform Shareblue into a “Breitbart of the left.” But Clinton’s electoral loss offers a unique challenge for Media Matters because, as Chang and Shephard report, “[t]he organization had long ceased to be a mere watchdog, having positioned...

  • (Vanity) FBI Agent's Wife Received Over $1 million and Paid it to a Priorities USA Bendor

    Props to the redditor who busted this: Okay people... follow the money! The Clinton's friends gave a lot more than $467,500. They actually gave over $1,000,000.00 as I've shown here: https://i.redd.it/b87arb20pgtx.png BUT then all that money went back to Shorr Johnson Magnus as media buys. http://www.vpap.org/candidates/257116/service/21/?start_year=2012&end_year=2015 This important because Shorr Johnson Magnus only works with Superpacs and large Federal elections, not small state elections. They are the media consultants for Priorities USA which as we know works closely with Hillary Clinton. So the Clinton's give her one million dollars (via friends) then take it all back using Shorr Johnson Magnus....

    New video from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas exposes a system called the “Pony Express,” which Democratic consultants allegedly use to relay messages between Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and a constellation of super-PACs funded by wealthy donors. By law, campaigns are not permitted to coordinate with super PACs, especially in advertising, spending, and strategy, though they may communicate limited information about fundraising. The Hillary Clinton campaign is well aware of the legal boundaries. The Wikileaks email trove produced a legal memorandum addressed to Hillary For America (HFA), explaining what types of communication are permitted and prohibited under federal campaign finance laws....

    You wouldn’t know it from the cable news crapstorm currently going on over Donald Trump’s 2006 bus ride with Billy Bush, but there was another Wikileaks document drop yesterday. While there’s plenty of material to dig through, the Daily Caller almost immediately highlighted one item which could involve a violation of the law on the part of the Clinton campaign. Super PACs and other outside groups spending big money on political advertising aren’t supposed to be coordinating with the campaigns they support, but at least one email exchange between Clinton campaign chair John Podesta and an organization run by Democrat...

    The super PAC supporting Donald Trump's White House run will begin airing a new ad Monday accusing Hillary Clinton of profiting from decades of political connections. "A foundation was created and money started to roll," a narrator says in the ad, part of a $3 million buy by pro-Trump group Rebuilding America Now. "The Clintons are now worth an excess of $100 million dollars," the ad continues. The super PAC will initially run the ad nationally on cable television before adding specific targets in the swing states of Florida, Ohio and North Carolina.

    U.S. Sen. John McCain wrote the rules on dark money when he sponsored campaign finance reform, also known as the McCain-Feingold Act. Now he’s using millions of dollars in dark money in a bid to hold on to his tightly contested Arizona seat. An investigation into the various PACs supporting McCain brought to light some stunning conclusions. First, the vast majority of McCain campaign donations are not from the Arizonans he represents but from people and corporations outside of Arizona with a vested interest in McCain’s continued support and votes for their interests. Second, several of the PACs supporting McCain...

    America got the contested convention it desired this weekend … from the Libertarians, anyway. Gary Johnson and William Weld managed to eke out majorities of delegates this weekend to become the only national party ticket with two former two-term governors on it, and both of them Republicans for that matter. Now that the circus has packed up, though, can the Libertarians compete for the first time, with both of the major parties nominating candidates with record unpopularity with voters? Politico reports that they will at least compete on funding, if nothing else. One big boost will come from the super-PAC...

    Donald Trump has devoted much of his campaign to railing against a corrupt system where politicians must answer to their donors — and to promising his supporters that he will break that mold.... As more super PACs continue to emerge, ... The candidate won't definitively rule out super PAC funding, instead suggesting that he doesn't want it for himself, but for the Republican Party.

Trump campaign manager, ... is still ruling out...
