Will #metoo Dems re-elect Bob Menendez?

New Jersey’s Senate race has been tighter than expected.  Although recent polls by CBS and Quinnipiac show Menendez with a comfortable lead, other outlier polls like one by Stockton University have the race within the margin of error.  Now Bob Hugin is using a new tactic: bringing up Menendez’s severe ethical issues.

Senator Bob Menendez just finished an ethics trial with a hung jury over charges that he was taking bribes and traveling to other countries to hire underage prostitutes.  Menendez voted against Brett Kavanaugh, saying Christine Ford was “not only to be believed” but was “a hero”.  Hugin is now using his own words against him attacking Menendez for hiring underage prostitutes.  Menendez’s lawyers argued that the underage prostitution in another country “would hardly be a Federal crime”.

Here is the hard hitting ad:

 

Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill is in trouble after a hidden camera caught her and her staff supporting a ban on all semi-automatic rifles and impeachment.  According to her staff, they have to lie about their support in order to get moderate votes in red leaning Louisiana.  They also said they would lie to voters after she was elected saying that national security issues prevented them from saying they would support impeachment.

“It’s like we have to lie to get elected”

“Essentially.”

Here’s the video:

 

Bill Nelson is another Democrat Senator in trouble.  Nelson sent out an email calling for donations to help Hurricane Michael victims.  But the link in his email goes to Actblue, a liberal Political Action Committee.  Actblue also donates funds to Super PACs which are not legally permitted to coordinate with campaigns or candidates.

Actblue has sent money to several high level Democrats including Elizabeth Warren and Nancy Pelosi.  They have also funded violent Leftist protest groups.  While the funds donated for hurricane relief will likely go to that cause, Nelson’s use of a political PAC to raise funds guarantees that he will get access to their personal information and can solicit further donations or have directed marketing campaigns towards hurricane relief donors.  Nelson did not disclose in his email that Actblue was a political PAC.  He made it sound like they were a charitable relief organization.

Bill Nelson pleads for hurricane relief, directs donors to a liberal PAC instead

Gun control advocates predictably wrong again

The scene was barely a few minutes old in Jacksonville, Florida before David Hogg was making statements about politicians and the NRA.  Another activist took to Twitter to list all the lax gun laws in Florida.  But none of it ended up being relevant.  The Florida shooter was actually a Maryland shooter who was down for the weekend.  He bought his guns in Maryland, which is the 7th strictest state regarding gun laws.  Additionally, he had been admitted for mental issues twice, which would have prevented him from buying his guns if Maryland’s background check system had caught it.  The shooter made several violent tweets before heading to the video game tournament, and those were forwarded to the FBI.  The shooting took place in a gun free zone, which is where 98% of mass shootings happen.  Once again, the facts make fools of gun control advocates.

Gun control activists hope for smoking gun, get same old story instead

Lanny Davis has now admitted that he was the unnamed source in the CNN story about Trump knowing ahead of time of the Trump Tower meeting.  This has been an embarrassing episode of fake news for CNN akin to the Dan Rather memogate scandal.  Davis, as an anonymous source, told CNN that his client Michael Cohen had knowledge that Trump knew about the infamous but not illegal Trump Tower meeting.  CNN ran with the story in July based on the anonymous tip.  Davis later made the claim publicly, before recanting and denying it publicly on CNN.  However, CNN ignored their own story and continued to run with the claim based on their anonymous source.  Now we know that source was Lanny Davis himself.

Lanny Davis admits he was anonymous source for his own fake news

Americans don’t support impeachment.  This is according to a new poll reported by left leaning Axios.  According to the poll, 64% believe Michael Cohen when he says he paid off Stormy Daniels.  But only 44% believe impeachment proceedings should begin.  In our opinion though, this is a stupid poll.  Trump said back in May that Cohen paid off Stormy Daniels and was reimbursed through his legal retainer, not out of campaign funds.  There is nothing there to impeach Trump for.  If anything, it shows that half of Americans are not keeping up with this mess.

Americans still against impeachment

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is back in hot water after her tweet that #abolishICE didn’t really mean #abolishICE.  She admitted she actually supports deportations.  It turns out “abolish” is simply the new “occupy” or “punch a nazi”.  It doesn’t mean anything, it’s just a dog whistle to her crazy supporters to show up armed and masked and destroy private property.

But perhaps even worse, Ocasio-Cortez said that #abolishICE meant we need ICE to stop “sexually assaulting women with impunity”.  I would love to see her meet with all 20,000 ICE employees in front of their families and say that to their faces.

#AbolishICE redefined as “Keep deporting, stop raping women”

Somali Refugee Attacks Students With Knife and Car

Today was a terrifying day for Ohio State students.  Somali refugee Abdul Razaq Ali Artan plowed his car into a group of students on campus and came out swinging with a kitchen knife.  11 were sent to the hospital with injuries.  Although originally reported as an active shooter, 18 year old Artan appears to not have had a gun.  He was shot and killed by the police.

Artan had posted anti-America posts on his Facebook page prior to the rampage.  He seemed to suggest that America was interfering with Muslim countries.  After the attack, Hassan Omar, president of the Somali Community Association of Ohio called it upsetting, adding “We are American and we don’t want somebody to create this problem”.

Shortly after the attack, the Twitter universe erupted with calls for more gun control, including a tweet from Democratic Representative Sheila Jackson Lee decrying the “senseless shooting at an Ohio State University”. While the scene was still fresh, former Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine added that he was “Deeply saddened by the senseless act of gun violence at Ohio State this morning.”  Ohio State University is a gun free zone, and apparently the only shooting was when Artan was shot by police.

In addition to the hero police officer who stopped the attack, there were other heroes on the scene.  In one class room, military students protected their fellow students by closing them in a room and standing guard at the door.

The press is not speculating about the motive.  Our prayers are with the injured and their families.
