MAGA: President Trump raises $24.8M for re-election in less than 24 hours

From Yahoo: President Trump held a rally in Orlando on Tuesday night billed as the kickoff to his reelection campaign. And according to the Republican National Committee, he received nearly $25 million in contributions in less than a day.

RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel announced Wednesday that Trump raised a “record breaking $24.8M in less than 24 hours for his re-election.”

“The enthusiasm across the country for this President is unmatched and unlike anything we’ve ever seen!” she tweeted.

RNC chief of staff Richard Walters told Yahoo News that the total is a combination of the amount raised by the Trump campaign and Trump Victory, the joint fundraising arm for the campaign and the RNC.

The RNC took in $10.8 million from major donors at two fundraising events, while the Trump campaign raised $8 million through a phone drive and about $6 million in online donations. (The average online donation was $44, Walters said.)

Trump’s one-day haul is nearly four times the amount former Vice President Joe Biden raised in the first 24 hours after announcing his 2020 presidential campaign.

Biden took in $6.3 million, the largest first-day total for any of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. According to Biden’s campaign, the money was raised from nearly 97,000 individual donors across all 50 states.

The former vice president’s campaign raised slightly more in its first 24 hours than former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke ($6.1 million) and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders ($5.9 million).

Biden, though, has faced criticism among Democratic rivals for his embrace of high-rolling donors and top-dollar fundraisers.

“I don’t spend time at fancy fundraisers,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted earlier this week. “Instead, I spend my time meeting voters and thanking grassroots donors who chip in what they can.”

Joe Biden, 76, wants a violent civil war

We have come to this.

A former U.S. vice president says it’s naive to think that Democrats and Republicans “have to work together” and proposes that the way to deal with Republicans is a violent civil war — “bare kuckle fight” “physical revolution”.

Ryan Saavedra reports for the Daily Wire that on Monday, June 17, at the Moral Action Congress of the Poor People’s Campaign in Washington, D.C., Demonrat 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden was asked by MSNBC’s Joy Reid: “How would you get past either a majority Republican Senate in which Mitch McConnell was determined to kill all of these ideas or even a Mitch McConnell in the minority who repeated the consistent filibustering when you were vice president and anything that came from the Obama-Biden administration Mitch McConnell considered dead on arrival?”

Biden replied:

“Joy, I know you’re one of the ones who thinks it’s naive to think we have to work together. The fact of the matter is if we can’t get a consensus, nothing happens except the abuse of power by the executive. There are certain things where it just takes a brass knuckle fight. Let’s start a real physical revolution if you’re talking about it.”

Watch and hear for yourself:

You want a “bare kuckle fight,” old man?

Claro que si: New York approves driver’s licenses for illegal aliens

I’m sure there will be no chance of fraud involved with this move. Oh wait…

From NY Post: A loophole in the new law granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants could allow hundreds of thousands of people to fraudulently register to vote in New York, according to critics, the state Board of Elections and the bill’s own sponsor.

“[A] major concern is that many states, including New York, use their DMVs to enroll voters. Since New York does not have voter-identification laws like the majority of other states do, this bill increases the potential for voter fraud,” state Sen. Republican ¬M inority Leader John Flanagan (R–Suffolk) said Tuesday.

“This means that New York will soon have the most radical, open-ended law in the entire nation.”

The Green Light Bill, which passed the Senate 33-29 Monday and was signed by Gov. Cuomo, allows illegal immigrants to obtain “standard” state drivers’ licenses that can be used for identification and to board domestic flights.

But it is also the sole document required to register to vote, according to officials.

Even legislative sponsor Luis Sepúlveda (D-Bronx) admitted the provision could be abused. “Theoretically, they could have the ability to vote,” he said while arguing for the bill during a Monday hearing in Albany.

Voters need only provide a driver’s-license number to register to vote, according to BOE spokesman John Conklin. “If you have a driver’s license number, you basically stop there,” Conklin told The Post Tuesday of the vetting process.

Registrants are required to check a box swearing they are eligible to vote in the US, but “it’s ¬basically an honor system,” he said.

Anyone who fraudulently fills out a voter form is subject to state fines of up to $5,000 and four years in prison — as well as potential removal from the country by the feds, BOE reps said.

Sepúlveda said anyone who wants to commit voter fraud already can — and has noted that instances are extremely rare. “Anybody could theoretically commit voter fraud,” he said. “You could get a form and register to vote, put any name — a teenager could get a form . . . there’s nothing that is 100 percent foolproof.”

Meanwhile, Erie County Clerk Michael Kearns — who is responsible for processing county driver’s licenses — said Tuesday he’d ignore the law and file a legal challenge. “I will not be granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, he wrote in a letter to the Erie County Law Department.

The state DMV did not respond to requests for comment.

LOL: De Blasio is no one’s choice for president in Iowa

From NY Post: Mayor de Blasio didn’t even register in a new Iowa poll that shows former Vice President Biden’s support slipping but Pete Buttigieg surging among the field of Democratic presidential hopefuls in Iowa.

De Blasio, who’s been in Iowa campaigning over the weekend, and Wayne Messam, the mayor of Miramar, Fla., were the only two candidates in the field of 23 not listed as either a first or second choice for president in the Des Moines Register/ CNN poll released late Saturday.

”There’s always been a question mark as to how many (candidates) can get any real traction,” said J. Ann Selzer, the president of Selzer & Co., which conducted the survey. ”And we gave them every opportunity to show that they have some kind of constituency here. But there’s a fair number who, their constituency just isn’t very big.”

De Blasio will attend a major Democratic Party fundraiser Sunday evening in Cedar Rapids, skipping the Puerto Rican Day Parade, the first sitting mayor to miss the celebration.

Biden is still the front-runner with 24 percent of the support of likely caucus-goers, but that’s down from December’s survey when he registered 32 percent of support, the survey said.

The race for second place is a statistical dead heat with Sen. Bernie Sanders at 16 percent, Sen. Elizabeth Warren amassing 15 percent and Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., gaining 14 percent.
The survey shows both Warren and Buttigieg making strong gains after polling at just 9 percent and 1 percent, respectively, in March.

Sen. Kamala Harris of California is the only other candidate among the field with a significant level of support with 7 percent.

The poll was taken between June 2 and June 5, before Biden flip-flopped on his stand on the Hyde Amendment, which bans federal funds for most abortions. Last Thursday, he came out against the amendment.

The Iowa caucuses will be held Feb. 3, 2020.

The poll surveyed 600 likely Democratic caucus-goers. It has a plus/minus 4 percent margin of error.

Woman stabs herself because she’s tired of living in Trump country

This is yet more evidence that liberalism really is a mental disorder.

Last Sunday, June 2, 2019, a woman in Palmetto, Florida, stabbed herself three times with a kitchen knife because, as she told the police officer:

“I’m tired of living in Trump’s country! I’m tired of Trump being president!”

Below is the police incident report, obtained by The Smoking Gun (the woman’s  name is redacted):

On 6/2/2019 I responded to XXX Palmetto Florida in reference XXX having stabbed herself with a kitchen knife. Upon my arrival I observed XXX standing outside of her home. I observed blood all over XXX’s legs hands and face. I did not observe XXX holding weapons at this time. When I asked what was wrong XXX lifted her shirt up and exposed her belly to me. I observed three stab wounds on XXX‘s stomach that were still bleeding. XXX stated, “I’m tired of living in Trump’s country; I’m tired of Trump being president.”

XXX told me she had stabbed herself because she does not want to live in Trump’s country. EMS arrived and transported XXX to Blake Medical Center under trauma alert. XXX stated to me that she has been Baker Acted before and has attempted to hurt herself in the past. I evaluated XXX for BA-52. I strongly believe there is substantial likelihood that without care or treatment the person will cause bodily harm to herself and/or others. I believe that XXX is unable to determine for herself whether examination is necessary.

Citing Yahoo News as his source, Hank Berrien of the Daily Wire explains:

The Baker Act is the Florida Mental Health Act of 1971, which allows the involuntary institutionalization and examination of a person. The examination can be requested by a judge, physicians, mental health professionals and law enforcement, so long as there is evidence a person has a possible mental illness and is in danger of harming themselves or others.

In college, Joe Biden was known to be a pedophile

The definition of “pedophile” is an adult with “sexual fondness for and activity” with children, i.e., minors below the age of consent.

Joe Biden, 76, is a former vice president in the Obama administration and a 2020 Democrat candidate for President.

Baxter Dmitry reports for Newspunch, April 3, 2019, that according to Paul Tatchell, a roommate of Joe Biden at the Syracuse University College of Law, Biden admitted he was sexually attracted to children.

Tatchell reportedly said that Biden “used to say it was his ‘civic responsibility’ and that if he didn’t ‘choke the chicken’ or ‘clean the hosepipe’ before spending time around children he wouldn’t be able to keep his hands off them.”

Urban Dictionary defines “choke the chicken” as masturbation; so is “clean the hosepipe”.

Tatchell said that Biden’s “attraction to children is also the reason he became a teetotaler,” because “he realized he couldn’t control himself in public with a few drinks in him.”

Tatchell also said that when Biden married fellow law student Neilia Hunter, who was from an affluent Skaneateles, New York background, she had to “overcome her parents’ reluctance for her to marry a young man with Joe’s dubious reputation.”

I can confirm the following:

  • Joe Biden did attend Syracuse University School of Law and graduated with a J.D. in 1968, 76th of 85 in his class. The next year, he was admitted to the Delaware bar. (Wikipedia)
  • Biden did meet Neilia Hunter while a law student at Syracuse. They married in 1966. In his autobiography, Promises to Keep: On Life and Politics, p. 37, Biden claimed that he had to overcome Neilia’s parents’ initial reluctance for her to wed because he’s a Roman Catholic. Neilia and their daughter, 1, were killed in an automobile accident in 1972.

Hillary Clinton calls herself ‘Madam President’ in commencement speech

It is now more than 2½ years since she lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald John Trump, but Hillary Clinton is still bitterly in denial and still coveting the presidency.

Last Wednesday, May 29, 2019, Hillary was the keynote speaker at the commencement of more than 2,400 Hunter College students in New York City’s Madison Square Garden.

Hunter College is one of the constituent colleges of the public, i.e., taxpayer-funded City University of New York (CUNY), in Manhattan, NYC.

Hillary began her speech by referring to Hunter College President Jennifer J. Raab’s “Madam President” title to imply that she (Hillary Clinton) should be President of the United States. She said:

“Thank you, thank you so much. I have to say this has been one of the most inspiring heartfelt commencements that I’ve ever experienced, and I am thrilled, I’m thrilled to be a part of it today. [Turning to look at Hunter College president Raab] ‘Madam President’ — that has a nice ring to it!”

Hillary then used the rest of her speech to attack President Trump and to continue the fiction that Russia had interfered in the 2016 election.

You can hear/watch her entire speech here, if you insist on torturing yourself.

Jennifer J. Raab, 62, was appointed president of Hunter College in 2001 by then NY Mayor Giuliani, amid controversy and accusations of intimidation of the CUNY Board of Trustees because of Raab’s lack of doctoral degree (she has a law degree from Harvard). Raab is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Nevada’s Democrat governor vetoes bill to abolish Electoral College

Our Founding Fathers created a federal republic, wherein the national government shares political power with state governments, instead of a centralized political system like China or the United Kingdom where political power is in the central government, and whatever powers are exercised by regional and local governments have been delegated to them — and thus, can also be taken away — by the national government.

To enable and uphold the American federation, the Founders created the U.S. Senate, in which each constituent state is represented by two senators, no matter the size of the state’s population. The Electoral College is another institution to prevent presidential elections from being determined by states with very large populations.

Cognizant that human passions can descend into mob-like behaviors, the Founders had another reason for the Electoral College: to prevent a tyranny of the (irrational) majority. The Founders’ fear of majority mob-rule was borne out less than 3 years after they created the Electoral College in 1787 when the French Revolution plunged the country into a decade of chaos and bloodbath.

Still in denial that Hillary Clinton had lost the 2016 presidential election and convinced that she had secured a majority of the popular vote, Democrats are mobilizing to abolish the Electoral College via the National Popular Vote interstate compact. To date, 14 states and the District of Columbia have passed legislation to give their 189 Electoral College votes to whichever presidential candidate wins the popular vote. The pact will only take effect if states holding the majority of the Electoral College’s 538 electoral votes join the agreement.

On May 21, 2019, by a 12-8 vote, the Nevada State Senate passed a bill to give the state’s 6 Electoral College votes to the winner of the presidential election’s national popular vote. Earlier, Nevada’s State Assembly had passed the bill 23-17. The addition of Nevada would boost the National Popular Vote interstate compact’s electoral votes to 195.

Happily, Nevada’s Democrat governor Steve Sisolak, who is threatened with a recall petition, surprised his critics by doing the right thing.

Gov. Steve Sisolak

As reported by The Hill, yesterday, Governor Sisolak vetoed Assembly Bill 186 that would have pledged Nevada’s Electoral College votes to the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote.

Sisolak said in a statement:

After thoughtful deliberation, I have decided to veto Assembly Bill 186.

Once effective, the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact could diminish the role of smaller states like Nevada in national electoral contests and force Nevada’s electors to side with whoever wins the nationwide popular vote, rather than the candidate Nevadans choose.

I recognize that many of my fellow Nevadans may disagree on this point and I appreciate the legislature’s thoughtful consideration of this important issue.
