James O’Keefe Uncovers Claire McCaskill’s Anti-Gun Extremism

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released a video Monday exposing Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) as favoring extreme gun control measures, which she is hiding from voters. The McCaskill video is the third in an ongoing series of undercover videos in which Project Veritas exposes red state Democrats for hiding their far-left views from voters. This video shows both McCaskill and her staffers admitting they favor additional gun control restrictions, including bans on bump stocks and high capacity magazines. When asked if she would support a ban on both, McCaskill says, “Of course! Of course!” McCaskill is currently in a tough re-election bid in Missouri, a state Trump won by nearly 20 points. Project Veritas also has campaign staffer Rob Mills admitting McCaskill cannot be honest about her gun control views: “That could hurt her ability to get elected” because “she has a bunch of Republican voters.” Mills also admits that McCaskill hides her support of the far-left gun control group Moms Demand Action:

Busted!  Let’s hope this video is played over and over again in Missouri these next three weeks.  It’s time for ol’ Claire to be shown the door.  For more, click on the text above.  Kudos to James for getting her on video saying all of this.  Excellent!!     🙂

U.S. Is World’s Most Competitive Economy for First Time in a Decade

The U.S. is back on top as the most competitive country in the world, regaining the No. 1 spot for the first time since 2008 in an index produced by the World Economic Forum, which said the country could still do better on social issues. America climbed one place in the rankings of 140 countries, with the top five rounded out by Singapore, Germany, Switzerland and Japan. All five countries’ scores rose from 2017, with the U.S. notching the second-biggest gain after Japan’s. The top spot hasn’t gone to the U.S. since the financial crisis stalled output and triggered a global economic slowdown. “Economic recovery is well underway, with the global economy projected to grow almost 4% in 2018 and 2019,” said the report, published Tuesday by the organization that produces the Davos conference on global politics and economics.

Opinion/Analysis: Democrats aren’t the party of women — they’re the party of exploiting them for political gain

The despicable treatment now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh received at his Senate confirmation hearing proves conclusively that the Democratic Party is not the party of women – it is the party of exploiting women for political gain. In their eagerness to pander to women by saying absolutely anything that might win their votes, Democrats were even willing to throw out the centuries-old concept that is the foundation of our legal system: the presumption that we are all innocent until proven guilty. Democrats insisted that women accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct should automatically be believed with absolutely zero evidence to back up their claims. Kavanaugh “bears the burden of disproving these allegations,” said Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., who as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee really ought to know better. OK, so will Coons pledge right now to immediately resign from the Senate if a woman he may never have even met comes forward and says – without any corroborating evidence or witnesses – that he sexually assaulted her decades ago? “There is no presumption of innocence…” insisted Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. That’s a truly scary statement that sounds like it could have been made at the Salem witch trials in the 1690s, when absurd accusations of witchcraft – primarily made by teenage girls – resulted in the conviction and hanging of 14 women and five men, plus the deaths of five people in jail. The statement of “no presumption of innocence” could also apply to the anti-communist crusade waged by Sen. Joe McCarthy, R-Wis., in the 1950s, when he accused hundreds of federal employees of being communists without evidence. And, of course, dictatorial regimes have a long history of imprisoning and killing their enemies in nations where there is no presumption of innocence. Who in their right mind would want this for America? If we toss out the presumption of innocence in our country – the way Democrats tossed it out for Kavanaugh – any one of us, regardless of our gender, could be arrested tomorrow and locked up indefinitely or even executed without evidence. One liberal celebrity, actor and comedian Patton Oswalt, took the statements about taking away Kavanaugh’s presumption of innocence to their logical conclusion, tweeting: “My verdict is GUILTY. Across the board. Don’t even need to hear the cases!” But while Democrats said Kavanaugh was flat-out guilty until proven innocent, they have reacted very differently to more credible accusations of sexual misconduct when a Democrat was the one being accused. A current example of this is Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., who is also deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee. His former girlfriend has accused him of repeated verbal and physical abuse, including a time when he allegedly once pulled her from a bed by her ankle during an altercation in 2016. As evidence, the former girlfriend published a photo of a medical document that shows she had been in an abusive relationship with Ellison, and her son has also said he has seen the abuse on video. Ellison has denied any wrongdoing. What did the Democratic Party of Minnesota do in response to calls for accountability for Ellison? It hired an internal lawyer to investigate the allegations, and then predictably concluded that there was “no substantial evidence” of abuse. There’s only one catch – the lawyer doing the investigating is a partner of a law firm that has donated more than $500,000 to Democrats since 1998, including nearly $50,000 to Ellison himself. And now Ellison is running as the Democratic candidate for state attorney general in Minnesota. If he were a Republican, Democrats would be demanding he abandon his candidacy and resign from Congress – but because he’s a fellow Democrat he gets a free pass. Of course, dismissing credible allegations of reprehensible behavior is nothing new for the Democratic Party, which for nearly 30 years has done its level best to portray former President Bill Clinton as the sympathetic victim of some puritanical crusade. But Monica Lewinsky was just the tip of the iceberg when it came to accusations of sexual misconduct perpetrated by Clinton. Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones, and other women made claims against Clinton that go beyond the Lewinsky affair. Juanita Broaddrick claims that in 1978 Clinton met her at a hotel in Little Rock and violently raped her and bloodied her lip. Clinton finally had to admit: “Indeed I did have a relationship with Miss Lewinsky that was not appropriate. In fact it was wrong.” But he denied allegations by other women. Despite all of this, Democrats still gush over the Clinton dynasty. The hypocrisy doesn’t end there. Democrats routinely attack their female enemies, secure in the knowledge that they will face few, if any, repercussions from their mainstream media allies. Liberals have attacked conservative women online with explicit and inexcusable abuse. Even Kavanaugh’s 10-year old daughter was targeted by a left-wing editorial cartoon. As Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., pointed out, all Democrats want is power – by any means necessary. At this point, it’s clear that the Democrats don’t really care about women. They only care about what women can do for them.

Agreed 100%, Candace.  For those who don’t know who Candace is..  She’s a black female conservative who is the communications director for Turning Point USA.  Outstanding!!    🙂

Judge Dismisses Stormy Daniels Lawsuit Against Trump, Orders Her to Pay His Legal Fees

A federal judge on Monday dismissed porn star Stormy Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against President Trump, saying the president was well within his First Amendment rights when he took to Twitter to mock her. Judge S. James Otero said Mr. Trump was using understandable hyperbole when he accused the woman, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, of a “con job” after she released a sketch artist rendering of a man she said threatened her to stay silent about her alleged sexual encounter with Mr. Trump years ago. The judge, a Bush appointee, said the back-and-forth was standard politicking from both sides, and he wouldn’t step in to limit the president’s ability to fight back. “In short, should plaintiff publicly voice her opinions about Mr. Trump, Mr. Trump is entitled to publicly voice non-actionable opinions about plaintiff,” he ruled. “To allow plaintiff to proceed with her defamation action would, in effect, permit plaintiff to make public allegations against the president without giving him the opportunity to respond. Such a holding would violate the First Amendment.” Judge Otero not only tossed Ms. Clifford’s lawsuit but ordered her to pay Mr. Trump’s legal fees, should he file such a request. Michael Avenatti, Ms. Clifford’s lawyer, who’s set himself up as a major political opponent of Mr. Trump‘s, vowed to appeal. He also said the judge’s ruling was “limited,” and insisted they’ll pursue Mrs. Clifford’s other lawsuits against Mr. Trump and his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen, who she says paid her $130,000 in hush money to keep her from talking about an alleged sexual encounter from years ago. “Trump’s contrary claims are as deceptive as his claims about the inauguration attendance,” Mr. Avenatti said on Twitter. Still, the legal loss — and demanding she pay Mr. Trump’s lawyer’s fees — is a setback for Ms. Clifford and Mr. Avenatti. It also means Mr. Trump will not have to face what could have been an excruciating legal discovery process — what the judge called a “fishing expedition” — that could have delved into the workings of the president’s political, legal and even Twitter operations. The defamation lawsuit stemmed from Ms. Clifford’s decision in April to release a sketch of a man she says threatened her in 2011, warning her to keep quiet. Mr. Trump took to Twitter the next day to ridicule her: “A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!” Ms. Clifford said the president was in effect calling her a liar, and effectively accusing her of making up a crime. She said that was defamation. Judge Otero, though, said a reasonable observer would have seen the president’s tweet as “rhetorical hyperbole,” or “extravagant exaggeration” used for rhetorical effect. He also said it matters than Ms. Clifford has set herself up as a political opponent of the president, saying that were she to succeed in her defamation claim it would mean the president would be constrained in going after politicians or other political adversaries.

MSNBC and CNN are screaming over this verdict in favor of the President. It’s a beautiful thing…    🙂

RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel Asked to Serve Second Term

The job of Republican National Committee (RNC) Chair is Ronna McDaniel’s for another two years if she is up for it. President Donald Trump has asked the high-ranking party official to serve a second term amid a stellar fundraising haul for the 2018 midterm elections, according to a Sunday Axios report. Axios co-founder Mike Allen writes that President Trump is thrilled with McDaniel’s “work on behalf of the America First agenda, effective management of the party infrastructure, and record grassroots engagement and fundraising.” President Trump’s offer comes after the RNC’s August filings showed the party raised $16.4 million for the month, bringing this cyle’s total to a whopping $252 million. “Enthusiasm for President Trump and his successful agenda is fueling our record-breaking fundraising and energizing our grassroots supporters,” McDaniel told The Hill of the record-breaking fundraising haul. With the midterm elections just 22 days away, McDaniel says Republican voters are “completely energized” following a successfully hard-fought battle to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. “The generic ballot has narrowed from double digits. Now it’s at seven. I’m looking at every race across the country,” the RNC chair told Fox News host Chris Wallace last Sunday. “We have about 30 that are in the margin of error, certainly in districts where Hillary Clinton won where we have Republican incumbents. Our job is to turn out our base first. Our base is completely energized right now. The Kavanaugh hearings have just highlighted how important this election is for them.” McDaniel, the niece of failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney, was elected RNC chair in January 2017, replacing Reince Priebus, who exited the role to serve as President Trump’s Chief of Staff. Previously, McDaniel assumed the role of Michigan Republican Party Chair in February 2015.

Portland mayor stands by decision to allow Antifa to block traffic, hassle motorists

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler came under fire over a viral video showing Antifa protesters blocking traffic and harassing drivers, but he says he supports the decision by police to watch from a distance without getting involved. “I was appalled by what I saw in the video, but I support the Portland Police Bureau’s decision not to intervene,” he said at a Friday press conference. “This whole incident will be investigated.” The video posted by journalist Andy C. Ngo showed protesters, including members of Antifa and Black Lives Matter, blocking an intersection and attempting to direct traffic at while officers on motorcycle watched from a block away. At one point, the activists chased down 74-year-old Kent Houser after he made a right turn against their wishes, pounding on his silver Lexus and breaking a window. The car sustained thousands of dollars in damage, he told the Oregonian. Even so, Mr. Wheeler insisted that “motorists should feel completely safe coming into downtown Portland.” Demonstrators did not obtain a permit before holding the Oct. 6 march to protest the death of Patrick Kimmons, a 27-year-old black man who was shot and killed Sept. 30 by police. The shooting is under investigation. The mayor has been accused of taking a kid-gloves approach to the protests that routinely roil the liberal enclave, such as the summer occupation of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement building, which saw Portland police refuse to assist unless federal officers were in physical danger. “This is the kind of street anarchy that routinely happens where I live,” tweeted Mr. Ngo. Rioting broke out Saturday night as Antifa activists brawled with protesters who turned out for a “flash march for law and order,” organized the right-tilting group Patriot Prayer.Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler came under fire over a viral video showing Antifa protesters blocking traffic and harassing drivers, but he says he supports the decision by police to watch from a distance without getting involved. “I was appalled by what I saw in the video, but I support the Portland Police Bureau’s decision not to intervene,” he said at a Friday press conference. “This whole incident will be investigated.” The video posted by journalist Andy C.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) is garbage, and a spectacular hypocrite…who doesn’t care about the good, law-abiding citizens of Portland in the least.  He has the nerve to call for an “investigation” into what happened with the Portland PD allowing Antifa to terrorize citizens…when it was he who ordered the cops to do nothing!  Some enterprising journalist should ask Mr. Wheeler, on camera, if he “should investigate” himself for knowingly, willingly, allowing a domestic terrorist organization to control the streets of Portland, and terrorizing its citizens…while he ordered his cops to just back and watch.  Of course, that would mean journalists actually doing their jobs and not being partisan hacks making excuses with Democrat politicians they’re trying to protect.  Let’s be honest..  The citizens elected this idiot Mayor.  So, that’s on them.  Hopefully they’ll wake up the next time he’s up for re-election, and vote for the other guy/gal.  Imagine a Republican mayor in Portland…    There have been crazier thing..

99.7 Percent of Donations from Hollywood Execs Go to Democrats

While Hollywood constantly preaches diversity, some of the entertainment industry’s most powerful and influential executives have given almost exclusively to Democrat candidates and left-wing PACs. According to The Hollywood Reporter, nearly 100 percent of the millions donated from the top executives in Hollywood went to Democrats or PACs working to elect Democrats. THR reports: “Of the more than $4 million in federal donations made by the top Hollywood executives and entertainers, 99.7 percent went to Democrats and Democratic-leaning political action committees or organizations, according to a Hollywood Reporter data review of Federal Election Commission records.” Only three members of this year’s THR 100 list donated to Republicans or Republican committees: Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels donated $5,000 to moderate Republican Sen. Susan Collins; WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey gave $2,000 to both Tennessee Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn and the National Republican Congressional Committee; and Viacom CEO Bob Bakish gave $1,500 to Republican Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson and $1,000 to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The report also notes that Reed Hastings, the CEO of Netflix, donated over half a million dollars to the Senate Majority PAC, a super PAC that works to get Democrats to win back the Senate. Bill Maher also donated $1 million to the Senate Majority PAC in August. Maher called for a recession in June if it would help get rid of President Trump. “I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point, and by the way, I’m hoping for it because I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy. So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people but it’s either root for a recession, or you lose your democracy,” he said. It’s also A-list directors like Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams and the major Hollywood talent agencies that are lopsidedly donating to Democrats, THR reports. Talent agency management gave consistently and generously to Democrats. After Whitesell ($147,400 in total donations) and Emanuel ($120,400 in donations), CAA Managing Partner Bryan Lourd paced the field ($106,300 in donations), followed by ICM Partners Managing Director Chris Silbermann ($54,700) and CAA Managing Partner Kevin Huvane ($47,300). Directors have been among Hollywood’s most prolific donors, including Steve Spielberg ($549,000) and J.J. Abrams ($347,500). And indeed, many celebrities are getting involved in the midterms like never before. A report from the Washington Post last month indicated that Hollywood has so far given $2.4 million to largely Democratic candidates for the 2018 midterms, more than $1 million than they donated in 2016.
