  • Michael Moore: 'We have the power to crush Trump'

    The Manchester Guardian ^ | October 18, 2018 | Owen Jones
    It falls to Michael Moore’s empty stomach to help explain to me the difference between hope and optimism. “Right now, I’m hoping that somebody will feed me today,” he says. But that hope is passive. It may whet his appetite, but the disappointment will be all the more crushing if it isn’t satisfied. On the other hand, he explains, optimism is constructive, strategic. “I’m in a first world country, and somewhere I have a wallet with a credit card and some money in it. So the optimist in me has credibility, because it’s safe to say I will eat. Does...

    The Democratic operative arrested and charged with battery against the female campaign manager for Nevada gubernatorial nominee Adam Laxalt was employed at the George Soros-funded American Bridge for months, despite a reputation on Capitol Hill for what sources described as “hostile” tactics. Wilfred M. Stark III, who goes by Mike, was arrested Tuesday evening in Las Vegas, after Laxalt campaign manager Kristin Davison accused him of grabbing and yanking her arm and refusing to let go. Las Vegas City Marshals arrested Stark, who was later released. Stark, who was a reporter for American Bridge 21st Century, was fired Wednesday night...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden said in an interview with "CBS This Morning" co-host Norah O'Donnell that if Democrats retake the House of Representatives, he hopes "they don't" impeach President Trump. "I hope they don't. I don't think there's a basis for doing that right now," Biden said. He called for Democrats to wait until the conclusion of the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller. "I think we should focus on all the terrible things that are happening now in terms of interest of the middle class people and working class people," Biden said, criticizing the Trump administration for "decimating"...

    The Hill ^ | 10/17/18 | BRETT SAMUELS
    Democratic congressional candidates combined have raised more than $1 billion this election cycle, underscoring an investment in flipping control of the House and Senate in next months midterms. A Washington Post review of Federal Election Commission records found that Democratic candidates raised $1.06 billion through the end of September. The figure surpassed the previous high of roughly $900 million given to Republican congressional candidates in 2012. It also marks the first time since 2008 that Democrats have outraised Republicans in direct contributions to candidates, even as the Republican National Committee (RNC) has significantly outpeformed the fundraising total of the Democratic...

    FULL TITLE: Democrats Should be Asked if They Support Snipping Babies’ Necks in Abortions Like Kermit Gosnell Did Whatever a person’s position on the divisive issue of abortion, one would think and hope that at the very least, people can agree that babies who are born alive, and are completely separated from their mother’s body, should be protected by law. Well, as it turns out, not even that protection is secure. About 13,000 abortions a year in the United States occur at or beyond 21 weeks of pregnancy. Phone calls with legal abortion clinics that I have commissioned and that...

    As Twitchy told you last night, a group of women outed as sexual assault survivors (in some cases incorrectly) in a campaign ad for Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp are currently exploring legal action. With good reason. What Heitkamp’s campaign did isn’t just reckless and outrageous; it’s also potentially very dangerous. At least one woman outed in the ad is now reportedly fearing for her life:

    “JB Pritzker for Governor has a serious race problem,” the lawsuit said. “Contrary to the candidate’s many public avowals, rather than working to meaningfully address discrimination, racism is perpetuated, condoned and ratified by the Campaign.” The lawsuit, filed Oct. 16 in Chicago federal court, specifically alleges the black and Latino campaign workers are packed into majority minority neighborhoods, often in unsafe working conditions, and are denied benefits and advancement opportunities available to their white colleagues. Named plaintiffs in the action include Maxwell Little, Jason Benton, Jelani Coleman, Celia Colon, Kasmine Calhoun, Erica Kimble, Nathaniel Madison, Tiffany Madison, James B. Tinsley...

    Non-Issue: In recent weeks, you may have begun to hear Democratic attack ads aimed at bashing Republicans over their stances on “healthcare.” Whether the ad claims GOP candidates want to “take away coverage for preexisting conditions” or “make health care more expensive,” Democrats cannot escape the fact that they, not Republicans, own the disaster that is the current state of U.S. healthcare delivery and financing.
  • How the candidates for governor would fix the traffic mess (Connecticut)

    The Connecticut Post ^ | October 13, 2018 | Bill Cummings
    More than 300 bridges in Connecticut — carrying 4.3 million vehicles daily — are considered structurally deficient. Highways in the Bridgeport-Stamford area are so congested motorists waste 49 hours a year in bumper-to-bumper traffic. And 62 percent of Connecticut’s major roads are in such poor condition they cost motorists $681 annually in vehicle repairs, according to TRIP, a national transportation think tank. Given those challenges, the three men seeking to replace Gov. Dannel P. Malloy could be making transportation the centerpiece of their campaigns. But instead, these candidates for governor are offering mostly modest plans to fix the state’s infrastructure...

    The University of Mississippi has condemned a tweet by a faculty member that called on activists to abandon civility and harass Republican senators in public. “Don’t just interrupt a Senator’s meal, y’all,” James Thomas, an assistant professor of sociology, tweeted from his @Insurgent_Prof account on Oct. 6, the day Justice Brett Kavanaugh was sworn into the Supreme Court. “Put your whole damn fingers in their salads,” he wrote. “Take their apps and distribute them to the other diners. Bring boxes and take their food home with you on the way out. They don’t deserve your civility.”

    American Thinker ^ | October 17, 2018 | John David Powell
    A woman I know frequently tells me that many of the posts she sees on her Facebook page come from people who do not have a religious foundation or simply do not believe in God. Politics is their religion, she says, and like all religious zealots, they will seek out and attack everyone who does not share their political beliefs. It is hard to argue against that, especially when one considers the many outlets for these outbursts, from in-your-face media bias to vocal and angry crowds. This does not paint with the broad brush of blame only individuals or groups...

    Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar has deleted an Instagram post in which he referred to his grandfather, Palestinian terrorist Muhammad Yousef al-Najjar, as a “legend.” Muhammad Yousef al-Najjar was “was “a senior member of the Palestinian terrorist group Black September that murdered 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics,” according to the Times of Israel, and a deputy for Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) leader Yasser Arafat. Earlier this year, when Campa-Najjar’s roots were first reported, he condemned his grandfather’s actions and supported peace.

    A white woman called the cops on a black father at his child’s soccer game — claiming he yelled at the referee, when he was actually just cheering on his son, according to local reports. Two other women who were at the teen match in Ponte Vedro, Fla., over the weekend took videos and posted about the incident on Facebook — uploading images of the field marshal who called the police, showing her sitting in a blue golfcart with a phone to her ear and nicknaming her “Golfcart Gail.” “A parent at my son’s soccer game had the police called...

    Less than a month after the confirmation of Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh entrenched a 5-4 conservative majority on the Supreme Court, leading law professors are urging Democrats to expand the size of all of the nation's federal courts and pack them with liberals. Far-left Harvard professors Mark Tushnet and Laurence Tribe are lending their support to the so-called "1.20.21 Project," which was launched by political science professor Aaron Belkin on Wednesday to counter "Republican obstruction, theft and procedural abuse" of the federal judiciary. That rhetoric reflects the professors' apparent surprise after Democrats lost the 2016 presidential election, which they had...

Democrats will look to pass a gun background check bill and protect Dreamers, undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, Pelosi told Politico.

    Well....as I have been posting all year long and longer, the current Democrat Party is self-destructing internally from its very own Democrat Party members. Case and point, Hillary Clinton & Elizabeth Warren, But there are many others doing the exact same destruction. Included in the destroyer list should be: Obama, Biden, Booker, Hirono, Harris, Durban, McCaskill, Sanders, Blumenthal, Waters, Gillum, O'Rouke, Schumer, Pelosi, Wasserman Schultz, Menendez, Casey, Brown, Stabenow, Kaine, Nelson, etc., etc.!!! I am beginning to believe that the so-called Democrat Party "Blue Wave" is nothing more then a dream fantasy from the very start, conjured up by Democrats...

    "It was heartbreaking. But I think women are not going to recede," Waters said. "Women are going to continue to confront what took place in that confirmation and him. And he won't rest easy in his job." . . Waters has encouraged harassment of public officials in the past, famously telling supporters to "create a crowd" when they see Republican officials to "tell them they're not welcome." This comment led to some censure from leaders in the Democratic Party, but Waters said she will continue to back such direct action.

    President Trump loves nothing more than when his opponents try to litigate his insults, as Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is trying to do with "Pocahontas," a staple riff at his rallies. The big picture: Trump's never more comfortable than on this terrain, and "Pocahontas" is one of his all-time favorites, according to aides. • But he also is especially proud of "Da Nang Dick" Blumenthal, for the exaggerated military record of the Democratic senator from Connecticut. • Trump also regularly hits "Sleepy Joe" Biden these days. • In Trump’s mind, his 2016 nicknames weren’t a sideshow, but were one of...

    Commenting on how Democrats can strengthen their party by effectively targeting Trump administration policies they oppose, Senator Tim Kaine (D-Va.) said liberals must "fight in the courts, fight in the streets" and "fight at the ballot box." On Tuesday morning's Morning Joe (MSNBC), co-host Mika Brzezinski asked, "So, broad question about the future of the Democratic Party, especially given your firsthand experience with what we've all been through. There's so much going on here that we clearly see, you know, places where you -- we can criticize what the administration is doing, but how does the party rebuild? How do...
