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!!     🙂

Poll: 49 Percent of Missouri Voters Less Likely to Support Claire McCaskill Following Kavanaugh Hearings

A Remington Research Group poll reveals that the confirmation process and hearings into allegations that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted Christine Blasey Ford at a high school party in the early 1980s are harming Sen. Claire McCaskill’s (D-MO) re-election bid in Missouri’s midterm election; 49 percent of voters say they are less likely to vote for her now. McCaskill announced she will be a “no” when the full Senate votes on Kavanaugh’s confirmation, the National Review reported. The poll also shows her Republican opponent, Josh Hawley, ahead by two points — 48 percent to 46 percent. The Remington poll surveyed 1,555 likely voters on Wednesday and Thursday, both the day before and the day of the public Senate Judiciary Committee hearing featuring Ford and Kavanaugh’s testimonies. Breitbart News reported on Saturday about a Missouri Scout poll that shows the same results: Hawley’s two-point lead over McCaskill just days after she announced she would vote against Kavanaugh. The Missouri Scout poll shows that Hawley leads McCaskill by a margin of 48 percent to 46 percent. The Missouri Scout survey was conducted on the same days as the Remington poll. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has said a vote will take place this week after the FBI wraps up its supplemental investigation into claims against Kavanaugh, which now includes allegations of drinking problems. Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), and Joe Donnelly (D-IN) are other red-state Democrats whose election bids might be impacted by the hearings and their votes on Kavanaugh.

Hopefully the good people of Missouri send ol’ Claire packing in November.  We’ve had quite enough of her in the Senate.

Claire McCaskill Polls as Most Unpopular Senator Up for Re-Election–for Four Consecutive Months

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), for the fourth consecutive month, ranks as the most unpopular U.S. senator up for re-election, according to a poll released last week. Forty-six percent of Missourians disapprove of Sen. McCaskill, while only 38 percent of Missouri citizens approve of the Missouri Democrat, according to a Morning Consult poll. Among senators up for re-election, Sen. McCaskill has ranked the least popular for the fourth month in a row. Fifty-three percent of Missourians believe it is time for a new Missouri senator, compared to just 31 percent of Missourians who believe Sen. McCaskill deserves re-election. An NBC News/Marist poll released last week showed that the race between McCaskill and her Republican challenger, Missouri state Attorney General Josh Hawley, is now tied for the Senate race. The survey found that both contenders receive 47 percent of the vote. Kelli Ford, a spokesman for the Hawley campaign, said in a statement on Monday: “Claire McCaskill and her dark money allies have spent millions of dollars in Missouri this year with little to show for it. She consistently votes against Missouri when it matters – from opposing middle-class tax cuts, to being wrong on the last five Supreme Court justices, to voting against the border wall. Washington is broken because of career politicians like Claire McCaskill, so it makes sense she’s the most unpopular and people want someone new.” Scandals have rocked Sen. McCaskill’s re-election campaign. A report released in July revealed that businesses with ties to McCaskill’s husband, Joseph Shepard, received $131 million in federal government subsidies since her election to the Senate in 2007. McCaskill faces an increasingly competitive Senate race in a state Donald Trump won in the 2016 presidential election by 18.5 percent. The tight election between Hawley and McCaskill has continued to put pressure on the Missouri Democrat to back Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

But, regardless of how she votes on Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation, that’ll have little bearing on how voters will cast their ballots in November.  She’s been voting along Democrat part lines her entire time in the Senate, and yet she represents a very conservative, red, state.  So, not exactly representing her constituency.  Let’s hope the good people of my home state of Missouri come to their collective senses and throw Claire out on her butt.

Sen. Claire McCaskill took action to hide travel on private plane from public

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.) took action earlier this year to make her family’s private plane untrackable by the public, according to documents obtained from the Federal Aviation Administration. McCaskill garnered much criticism ahead of her last reelection campaign over her use of a private jet at taxpayer expense that she demanded her husband “sell the damn plane.” But they bought a new, more expensive plane shortly after she won that election. Now, as she gears up for her next election fight, they have taken action to limit scrutiny of the plane’s use. The company hired by McCaskill to operate the plane, a 2009 Pilatus PC-12/47E, wrote to the FAA earlier this year in April to ask that tracking information on the plane be blocked from the public, according to email records obtained by the Washington Free Beacon through a Freedom of Information Act request. Prior to 2013, private aircraft owners or operators had to present a “certified security concern” to the FAA if they wanted to block their aircraft data from public display on websites such as FlightAware.com, where McCaskill’s plane could be tracked as recently as this year. However, changes made during the Obama administration removed this requirement and “make the aircraft blocking process as simple as possible.” Representatives for McCaskill did not respond to multiple inquiries into the reason for the request and whether it had to do with her upcoming election. The Washington Free Beacon reported in October that McCaskill had spent nearly $21,000 to use her private plane on the campaign trail in just three months. McCaskill was also spotted using her private plane in August for travel between town halls she held in Missouri, which are events held by her official Senate office. McCaskill also failed to respond to request for comment on those trips.

Big surprise….not!  I’m sure the voters in Missouri would like to know why Sen. McCaskill is abusing their hard-earned tax-dollars this way..   Might even be worthy of a Senate ethics investigation..  Anyway, to read the rest of this article, click on the text above.

McCaskill Misleads with Tweet She Had No Contact with Russian Ambassador

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo) sent out a misleading Tweet on Thursday claiming that she had never, “ever” met or spoken with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, while previous Tweets showed she met and spoke to the Russian official in 2013 and again in 2015. “I’ve been on the Armed Services Committee for 10 years. No call or meeting with Russian ambassador. Ever. Ambassadors call members of the Foreign Res Com,” McCaskill tweeted on Thursday. Almost immediately following her Tweet, McCaskill’s past Tweets contradicted her claim, including two retweeted by National Review Online Editor Charles C. W. Cooke showing a Tweet in 2013 and another in 2015 that said the senator spoke and met with Kislyak.

Doh!!  Claire is SO full of it!  To see her Tweets, and read the rest of the article, click on the text above.  This whole story is “fake news,” and just a ridiculous witch hunt by these Dems who have nothing.  Keep that in mind..  They’re still in denial about the November 2016 election.  They can’t accept that they had an awful candidate (Hillary), and that they lost.  Sooo..  It must have been the Russians who rigged the election and threw it to Trump.  Of course it’s ridiculous.  BUT, that’s all they’re clinging to.  Again, keep that in mind..
