Loser Joe Walsh Who Is Running Against President Trump As A Republican Raises Pathetic Amount Of Money

H/T Right Wing Tribune.

Joe Walsh could not raise enough money to be elected dogcatcher.

Former Republican Rep. Joe Walsh has raised less than $130,000 for his long-shot primary bid against President Donald Trump, according to a report submitted Tuesday to the Federal Election Commission.

Walsh reported having $115,000 cash on hand at the end of September; however, much of that is attributed to a $100,000 loan Walsh made to his campaign four days prior to the close of the reporting period, indicating the former Illinois congressman had blown through most of his contributions.

Walsh’s campaign war chest heading into the fourth quarter of 2019 is less than the $117,000 in unpaid child support his ex-wife sued him over in 2011.

Notable contributors to Walsh’s campaign are the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, George Conway, and Bill Kristol, the former editor-in-chief of The Weekly Standard, the FEC report shows.

Walsh’s fundraising performance pales in comparison to the $125 million raised by the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee raised in the third quarter of 2019.

Walsh received a considerable amount of media attention after launching his primary challenge against Trump on ABC News in late August.

“I’m running because he’s unfit. Somebody needs to step up and there needs to be an alternative,” Walsh told ABC News host George Stephanopoulos. “The country is sick of this guy’s tantrum. He’s a child. I’m going to run for president.”

But Walsh’s primary challenge has been troubled from the start.

Hours before Walsh launched his bid, his campaign manager, Jacob Perry, emailed prospective campaign staffers saying that he had been “completely ghosted” by the long-shot candidate.

“As of this morning, it has been eight days and 23 unanswered phone calls since I last spoke with Joe,” Perry wrote, The Daily Beast reported.

The Walsh campaign did not return a request for comment.

Everybody Hates Beto And Wants Him To Shut Up About Taxes, Guns, And Churches

H/T Town Hall.

I am most likely the only person that wants Little Bobby Francis O’Rourke to keep talking.

The more he talks the deeper hole he digs for himself and his fellow DemocRats.

Poor Robert Francis O’Rourke. He married into an uber wealthy family after having a financially well-off upbringing, is convinced that he was “born” to run in the 2020 election cycle, and was fawned over by national media in his 2018 Senate campaign against Ted Cruz. But still, he somehow finds himself to be a sad sack of a leftist whose colleagues wish would just shut his trap. Beto, as he likes to call himself in order to court the Hispanic vote, keeps letting the left’s true desire slip out of his mouth. Whether he is talking about wanting to ban virtually all guns, or take away tax-exempt status for religious organizations, everybody just wants Beto (his Democratic opponents especially) to put a sock in it. But is it because he has nothing to say or because he’s revealing the Democrats’ goals?

Cortney covered South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg criticizing Beto for his CNN town hall comments that any religious organization which opposes same-sex marriage should be stripped of tax-exempt status. Here’s what Buttigieg had to say:

I’m not sure he understood the implications of what he was saying,” Buttigieg said of O’Rourke. “That would mean going to war not only with churches, but with mosques and a lot of orgs that may not have the same view of various religious principles that I do.”

Buttigieg reminded his opponent about the separation of church and state, which acknowledges churches and other religious organizations as nonprofits in the U.S.

According to the Washington Post, Sen. Warren is now also condemning Beto’s proposal:

Asked to respond to former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s assertion last week that religious institutions should face the loss of their tax exemption for opposing same-sex marriage, Warren campaign spokeswoman Saloni Sharma said that “Elizabeth will stand shoulder to shoulder with the LGBTQ+ community” to help stamp out “fear of discrimination and violence.” But she declined to take aim at the tax status of religious organizations that don’t support same-sex marriage.

“Religious institutions in America have long been free to determine their own beliefs and practices, and she does not think we should require them to conduct same-sex marriages in order to maintain their tax-exempt status,” Sharma said by email.

But, as several have pointed out, Beto’s CNN audience comprised of ardent progressives cheered this idea. Indeed, the idea to abolish the tax-exempt status over gay marriage has been advocated  since at least 2015. In a Splinter article titled, “Does your church ban gay marriage? Then it should start paying taxes,” the author uses virtually the same language as Beto does. “We’ll let you practice your bigotry, at least within the confines of your own church. But we’re not about to reward you for doing so,” the piece states.

Beto’s calls for gun confiscation were also met with ire from some leftists on the national level, but applauded for by his immediate audience. This raises the questions, do Democrats hate Beto because his policies violate the Constitution, or do they hate him because he is a man ahead of his time and exposing what the progressive base really wants?

 

Jeff Sessions 2020 U.S. Senate Run Buzz Swirls in Alabama

H/T Breitbart.

I hope Jeff Sessions comes up short in the primary if he decides to run.

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — It will be another four and a half months before Republican voters in Alabama select a GOP nominee to face incumbent Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) in the Nov. 3, 2020 general election.

However, there could be a familiar face among the list of candidates on the ballot.

In recent days, there has been rampant speculation that former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions could enter the contest for his old seat. Sessions held the seat currently occupied by Jones from 1997 through 2017. He gave up that seat to serve in the Trump administration until his unceremonious exit in late 2018.

If Sessions were to enter the race for the Republican Party’s nomination, he would be joining a crowded field that includes former Auburn University head football coach Tommy Tuberville, U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-AL), Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill, State Rep. Arnold Mooney (R) and former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore.

Late last month, Tuberville secured front-runner status by receiving the endorsement of the influential Alabama Farmers Federation.  At the time and to this day, publicly available polling has shown Tuberville with a substantial lead over the rest of the field.

One poll leaked to the media last week showed Tuberville with a 21-point lead over second-place Roy Moore.

Tuberville’s commanding lead hasn’t stopped the insider buzz about Sessions entering the race. Privately and publicly, Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) has made overtures about Sessions running in 2020.

That speculation reached a fever pitch this week as talk that polling was being conducted on Sessions’ behalf to gauge public interest in his potential U.S. Senate candidacy.

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Friday, Alabama political columnist and Troy University political science professor Steve Flowers addressed the possibility of Sessions entering the field, adding that it has not gone unnoticed by other campaigns.

“In my conversation with Coach Tuberville – he had two or three of his aides with him – they are very apprehensive that Sessions is going to run,” Flowers said on “The Jeff Poor Show.” “I do know that there is a poll in the field right now trying to ascertain how he would do. I’ll say this: A month ago, I would have told you – I may have told you on your show – I didn’t think there was any chance Sessions was going to run. I think there’s a possibility of it now. I’m hearing strong rumors from all over the place. Nobody knows. I don’t think Sessions knows, but I think Sessions is revisiting it.”

Flowers said he expected the falling out between Sessions and President Donald Trump to be a factor in a potential 2020 U.S. Senate run for Sessions. That falling out apparently remains fresh on Trump’s mind, who described Sessions as both an “embarrassment” and a “disaster” as U.S. attorney general in an interview with Sebastian Gorka for The Daily Caller published on Thursday.

“Two different sides of it – Trump is so popular in the state, I think some of the crossfire they were in hurts Sessions, and then I don’t know,” Flowers said.

Flowers predicted if Sessions did announce his candidacy, at least two of the candidates could seek other political opportunities.

“I do think this – I think he is heavy enough that if he did run, you might see two of the people, and I don’t know this. I’ve not talked to them about it. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Bradley Byrne go back to his congressional race, and John Merrill go back and wait for 2022 rather than run against Jeff Sessions.”

“I think Tuberville is in it,” he continued. “I think Moore is in it. I don’t think they fold their tent. But I think Sessions is heavy enough that if he gets in there, he may run Byrne and Merrill home. I don’t know that now, I just say that because if this time next week we’re talking, and we find out Sessions is in there, it’s not going to surprise. I don’t think it happens, but it wouldn’t surprise me.”

Sessions has not put to rest any of the rumors about his return to politics. During his appearance at a Madison County, AL Republican Party fundraiser earlier this month, he declined to answer questions from attendees about a potential 2020 U.S. Senate run.

The clock is ticking for Sessions to make a final decision. Qualifying began last week for Republican candidates and continues until Nov. 8. Thus far, only Adair, Merrill, Mooney and Tuberville have formally qualified.

Also up for grabs is Alabama’s first congressional seat occupied by Byrne with several candidates including Mobile County Commissioner Jerry Carl, State Rep. Chris Pringle (R), restauranteur Wes Lambert and former State Sen. Bill Hightower currently campaigning for the post on the assumption Byrne is seeking the U.S. Senate.  As of Saturday, no one has qualified as a GOP candidate for that seat.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe Ties Warren’s Pregnancy Story to Past Lies on Heritage, Michael Brown

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

Does this mean the long knives are now out for Princess Fauxachontias?

Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski tied the ongoing scrutiny of Elizabeth Warren’s claim that she was fired from a public school teaching job because she was pregnant to previous mistruths told by the Democratic presidential candidate.

Brzezinski discussed Warren’s claim on Wednesday morning, pointing to school board records obtained by the Washington Free Beacon that show Warren was extended an offer to keep the job she claimed she was dismissed from. Brzezinski compared the scrutiny into Warren’s claim to two of her past claims that have been proven untrue.

“Her past claim of Native American ancestry resulted in an apology to tribes last year, and her tweet earlier this year that the police officer who shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, murdered the 18-year-old was awarded ‘Four Pinocchios’ by a Washington Post fact check,” Brzezinski said.

“Are either of these two issues, the Pocahontas one and then this pregnancy story, do you feel they will stick?” Brzezinski asked her guests, MoveOn.org’s Karine Jean-Pierre and former Democratic senator Claire McCaskill.

Warren apologized for her claims of Native American heritage in August, about a week after the Washington Post called her out for lying about Brown being murdered. Brzezinski’s confluence of the past mistruths with the current scrutiny of inconsistencies of her pregnancy story indicates that doubts remain about whether Warren is telling the truth, despite her decision to lean into the claim.

McCaskill, whose own campaign was derailed last year after the Free Beacon discovered her misrepresenting her means of travel throughout the state, argued that Warren needs to take scrutiny of her past claims seriously.

“This is now going to be the new normal. She has front-runner status now,” McCaskill said. “And there is going to be more incoming. … She’s going to have to get used to a defensive crouch, and figure out how she pivots and stays on offense.”

Brzezinski finished the discussion by again bringing up Warren’s claims of Native American ancestry, calling it a “cringer.”

 

 

 

 

Clinton: ‘Maybe There Does Need to Be a Rematch’

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

President Trump can beat Crooked Hillary a second time.

Crooked Hillary says she can beat him again remind me who is currently in the White House.

‘I can beat him again’

 

Hillary Clinton said that “maybe there does need to be a rematch” between her and President Donald Trump in 2020.

The former secretary of state appeared with her daughter Chelsea on PBS NewsHour on Tuesday after sparring with Trump on Twitter. Despite her loss in 2016 and Trump’s victory in Rust Belt Democratic strongholds, Clinton insisted she could win “again” in 2020.

“I mean, obviously I can beat him again,” she told PBS NewsHour.

Trump mocked the former first lady in a Tuesday morning tweet for her historic loss in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton responded on Twitter, hinting that the GOP president was causing her to consider running again.

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren. Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how & why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting “C” Subpoena!

Clinton, who spent hundreds of millions of dollars on two failed presidential campaigns, often complains about the outcome of the 2016 election. In a September interview with CBS, Clinton said “many funny things” prevented her victory in 2016. In the same interview, she voiced support for an impeachment investigation against Trump.

Clinton has also been claiming since May 2017 that voter suppression in Wisconsin denied her the presidency. The left-leaning fact-check site PolitiFact has rated this claim “pants on fire,” its worst possible rating.

 

City Charges Trump $500K, Obama $20K For Rally Security

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

I hope President Trump sues Mayor Jacob Frey’s leftist ass off.

President Donald Trump’s campaign is threatening a lawsuit after Minneapolis city leaders charged it $530,000 for security at an event scheduled for Thursday—26 times the amount it billed former president Barack Obama for a 2009 rally.

Mayor Jacob Frey said in September that Trump’s behavior is “reprehensible” and that his “message of hatred will never be welcome in Minneapolis,” according to the Star Tribune. The Trump campaign accused Frey of “abusing the power of his office” and “conjuring a phony and outlandish bill for security.”

Other Trump events have cost significantly less. A rally held in Rochester, Minn., in October 2018 cost the city $76,138. A June event in Duluth, Minn., cost $69,000. Mass presidential events in Minneapolis have also been much cheaper in the past. Police estimated in 2009 that security costs for Obama’s rally, which was hosted at the same sports stadium as the upcoming Trump rally, only amounted to $20,000.

Frey acknowledged in a statement that he could not legally prevent Trump from staging a rally in the city.

“While there is no legal mechanism to prevent the president from visiting, his message of hatred will never be welcome in Minneapolis,” the mayor said.

The city’s police department banned officers from wearing material promoting political candidates the day after the Trump campaign announced the event. The Minneapolis police union began selling “Cops for Trump” t-shirts in protest on Monday.

Trump weighed in as well, encouraging his supporters in a Tuesday morning tweet to “dump” Frey, as well as Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.), whose district is in Minneapolis.

The radical Mayor of Minneapolis, @Jacob_Frey, is abusing his power in an attempt to block the President’s supporters from seeing him speak on Thursday.

Warren Tells Crowd She Was Fired for Being Pregnant In 70s, But In 2008 Video She Clearly States It Was Her Decision

H/T Flag And Cross.

Fauxachontas has a heap big pack of lies that being refuted by a video telling a different story from her lies

Someone call an ambulance because Elizabeth Warren’s pants are on fire.

The 2020 Democrat frontrunner (according to at least one poll) recently said something about being fired in the 1970s that doesn’t match up with what she said in 2008.

How convenient.

Here’s the deal…

From Daily Wire:

On Wednesday, during a town hall in Nevada, she told the crowd she lost her teaching job in the early 1970s because she was “visibly pregnant.”

“By the end of the first year, I was visibly pregnant, and the principal did what principals did in those days — wish me luck and hire someone else for the job,” she told the crowd in Carson City.

Warren, 70, seemed to be implying that she was terminated simply because she was pregnant.

But a YouTube clip posted in January 2008 shows Warren giving a completely different reason for why she left that school.

WATCH:

Fox News:

“I went back to graduate school and took a couple of courses in education and said, ‘I don’t think this is going to work out for me,’” Warren continued. “I was pregnant with my first baby, so I had a baby and stayed home for a couple of years, and I was really casting about, thinking, ‘What am I going to do?’”
