Fake Conservative PAC Attacks President Trump Endorsed Kari Lake

 

red and black heartA shadowy fake conservative political action committee ran an attack ad against Kari Lake, running for Arizona governor this year. The ad ran on the Sunday, final day, broadcast of the Waste Management Phoenix Open. This Professional Golf Association event is unique in its working-class, people’s tournament atmosphere, with a raucous crowd lining the course and no silence for every golf stroke. CBS carried the WM Phoenix Open, making this a large local market event in the hours before the Super Bowl. A quick search of both the state and federal databases shows this shadowy PAC is entirely off the radar. A reasonable conclusion is that we are seeing a technically independent Mitch McConnell/Kevin McCarthy/establishment GOP attack on the MAGA candidate.

The Waste Management Phoenix Open was great viewing, on the course or on-screen, with a hole-in-one on both Saturday and Sunday. “Clean up on 16” was the call on the famously loud hole with multistory viewing stands.

McCauliffe Affirms School Signs

 

Ballot boxThe Virginia gubernatorial race will be over, plus or minus the stuffed ballot boxes, Tuesday, November 2. In the closing week, it appeared the electorate was shifting towards the Republican candidate, Glenn Youngkin. To the extent the shift was real, it was driven by the veteran Democrat hack Terry McAuliffe saying the quiet part out loud on education. His statement, in a late September debate, hurt him in the polls, but he has doubled down in the closing days of the election. Contrast this with his shift away from trying to make the election about President Trump. Is this a sign his campaign is confident the fix is in, that they have secured the margin of cheating?

In the September 28 debate, McAuliffe addressed school curricula and parental voice, a hot issue:

“I’m not going to let parents come into schools and actually take books out and make their own decision,” McAuliffe said. “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”

Dog Bites Man – Fraudi: Parties for me but not for thee

 

Once again, “Doctor” Fraudci spouted leftist partisan nonsense, in the false name of public health. He peddled his propaganda on the Poppycock Network, appearing on Meet the Press to condemn those bitter clinging deplorable extremist hobbits gathering in Sturges, South Dakota, while having nary a care for the equivalent “superspreader” events this past week on Martha’s Vineyard and in Chicago.

Lollapalooza is a long-running music festival, held in Chicago, Berlin,  São Paulo, Buenos Aires, Santiago, Stockholm, and Paris. Chicago hosted Lollapalooza, July 29 – August 1, 2021, in Grant Park. It was a perfectly normal huge weekend party, with mostly younger people packed in shoulder-to-shoulder. There were 8 stages and over 170 bands.

The Brothers Cuomo Will Face No Consequences

 

Gov. Andrew Cuomo violated federal and state sexual harassment laws, according to an independent investigation by New York state’s attorney general. In a Tuesday news conference, AG Letitia James revealed that Cuomo engaged in “unwanted groping, kissing, hugging, and making inappropriate comments” to multiple women, including state employees. The probe also found Cuomo allegedly retaliated against one accuser and presided over a toxic and hostile work environment.

After interviewing 179 witnesses, James said, “These interviews and pieces of evidence revealed a deeply disturbing yet clear picture: Gov. Cuomo sexually harassed current and former state employees in violation of federal and state laws.” She added that she was “inspired by all the brave women who came forward” and “more importantly, I believe them.”

Looks like the end for the third-term New York Governor, right? Not so fast…

Perhaps you remember this story in The Atlantic a few weeks ago, as Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp announced his state was going to begin reopening towards the end of April following a gubernatorial-led national shutdown of our economy. This paragraph is notable: Kemp’s order shocked people across the country. For weeks, Americans have watched the […]

There are two votes I regret in my adult life. First, was voting for Jimmy Carter for President in 1976 (I was a stupid 20-year-old liberal Democrat and college student at the time), and my vote for Arlen Specter in the GOP Primary for US Senate in 2004. Specter, with strong support from my friend, […]

Do you ever feel like you’re living in some kind of an alternate reality? How could you not? The United States of America, the most powerful and dynamic country in world history, along with most Western countries, is almost totally shut down because of . . . a virus! That’s right, the country is not […]

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast – number 187!!! – for August 16, 2018 it’s the Too Much Preying edition of the show with your holier-than-thou hosts Todd Feinburg, radio guy, and Mike Stopa, AI bot. Welcome, welcome, welcome!

This week we are back into sex. We love to talk about sex. That’s pretty much all we can do concerning sex is talk about it so we might as well enjoy it.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome the news that American pastor Andrew Brunson was moved from a Turkish prison to house arrest, and they condemn the bogus allegations that Brunson provided aid for the failed coup.  They also welcome the news that the ten most popular governors in America are Republican— great news in a year when most governorships are on the ballot. And they condemn the insanity of Santa Barbara, California, threatening fines and jail time for restaurant servers handing out plastic drinking straws without being asked, but Jim also sees a fantastic business opportunity there.

As I reported last week, the California gubernatorial race has two Republicans vying to get into second place in the upcoming June primary to face off against Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom in November. Well, now President Trump has weighed in with a tweet officially endorsing John Cox for Governor. This important endorsement could seal the […]

A year after Donald Trump’s improbable win, voters went to the polls in Virginia to elect a new governor—a contest that was, in part, a referendum on Trump’s nascent presidency. Hoover senior fellow and renowned pollster Doug Rivers breaks down the Old Dominion vote and what the results say about the effectiveness of Republican and Democratic messaging on the verge of the 2018 midterm elections.

I don’t usually care very much about who’s the governor in a state I don’t live in, but I’ve been following this one a bit via the segments in the Ricochet Podcast Superfeed and I really want Gillespie to win. Although I have vague memories of seeing him on the Sunday shows during Obama’s first […]

I just posted this over at RushBabe49.com.  I would like to thank our former Attorney General for including this in his daily summary of the activities of our sleazy politicians down in Olympia.  Our governor is demonstrating that he has about the brain power of our “senior” senator, who is the stupidest member of either […]

I’m sure someone has addressed this already, but here’s my input anyway. The Governor’s race is still undecided as of this writing, mainly because 90,000 votes were ‘discovered’ to have been left out of the count. Reference my title and ask yourself, “How in the name of all that’s holy can that be possible?!?”. A […]
