Valerie Plame Lies About Scooter Libby, Drives Camaro Backwards in New Campaign Ad

 


Democrat Valerie Plame released a very slickly produced but factually inaccurate video today in her bid for Congress in New Mexico’s open 3rd congressional district. In the video, Plame claims, “I was an undercover CIA operative… then Dick Cheney’s Chief of Staff took revenge against my husband and leaked my identity. His Name? Scooter Libby. Guess who pardoned him last year?” A picture of President Trump is then displayed in the video.

Plame is lying. Scooter Libby did not leak her name. Richard Armitage, a deputy secretary of state under Colin Powell, leaked her name. This is not a theory. Armitage admitted that he leaked her name. This has been public knowledge since at least September 8, 2006, when the Washington Post published an article titled, “Armitage Says He Was Source of CIA Leak.”

Sanctuary Counties in New Mexico

 

I am visiting relatives in New Mexico and noticed that the leftist government passed a law requiring background checks on gun sales between individuals.

The governor signed it, of course. A quote shows that she apparently has never read the US Constitution:

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are baffled by the lack of media coverage about a New Mexico compound where starving children were reportedly being trained to carry out school shootings, and they find, once again, that the FBI responded slowly to compelling tips. They also continue to find entertainment […]

If New Mexico Voters Want Trump to Be President, They Should Vote for Johnson

 

Gary-Johnson-New-MexicoIn a recent poll by the Albuquerque Journal, New Mexico voters were asked which candidate they support: 35% said Hillary Clinton, 31% said Donald Trump, 24% said Gary Johnson, and 2% said Jill Stein.

As these numbers suggest, if a significant share of Trump supporters were to vote for Johnson, then this would give Johnson a plurality of New Mexico’s voters, which by New Mexico law, would give Johnson all five of New Mexico’s electoral votes.

Cruz Cedes OR, NM Primaries to Kasich; Focuses on Indiana (UPDATE: Trump Responds)

 

Jeff Roe, Cruz for President’s campaign manager released the following statement late Sunday:

Having Donald Trump at the top of the ticket in November would be a sure disaster for Republicans. Not only would Trump get blown out by Clinton or Sanders, but having him as our nominee would set the party back a generation. To ensure that we nominate a Republican who can unify the Republican Party and win in November, our campaign will focus its time and resources in Indiana and in turn clear the path for Gov. Kasich to compete in Oregon and New Mexico, and we would hope that the allies of both campaigns would follow our lead. In other states holding their elections for the remainder of the primary season, our campaign will continue to compete vigorously to win.
