More Bribery: Kamala Harris
hands $400,000 to Heidi Heitkamp

American Thinker, by Monica Showalter

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 10/9/2018 10:13:46 AM

Funny how politics works these days... Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota went against her own voters´ sentiment, which supported Judge Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court by about 60%, voted against the man in a bid to sink his confirmation, and suddenly found herself with a flood of campaign cash, courtesy of Sen. Kamala Harris, who raised her a $400,000 payday. Here´s the news from NBC´s Kasie Hunt, which was first spotted by Mike Allen at Axios: Was that cash why she changed her vote from sympathetic to Kavanaugh to a ´no´? One wonders if these were the arrangements

Comments:
Was Heitkamp notified about this ´reward´ if she changed her vote?

File under ´stinks.´

Talk about flushing money down the toilet! At this point, no amount of money will make the difference in this election. Heitkamp is toast. But then again, why am I surprised? Flushing money down the toilet is what Democrats do best.

So that´s why the Dems stonewalled and demanded more time? They needed time to raise cash for bribery?

There´s a very thin line between campaign contributions and bribery. Who contributes to a candidate not expected to "do the right thing" when it matters? Anyone? And when they "do the right thing"...

I know that Heitkamp is far behind in the polls, but $400k is a whole lot of money in the North Dakota ad market, and you can be sure Heitkamp will saturate the airwaves with distortions and smears for the next month. I hope the good people of North Dakota see through Heitkamp and that Cramer (her opponent) gets his own ads out there highlighting Kamala Harris´ tweet and participation in and connection to all of Heitkamp´s new found $$$$.

She´s cunning and ambitious. Nothing will stand in her way (if she is given opportunity).

What´s that old joke that ends, "We know what you are, we´re just haggling over the price."?

I guess if Kamala wants to burn $400,000, let her do it. You could flush it down the commode and get the same result.

People, please remember that any remaining cash in a campaign fund goes to the politician after the election. Four hundred thousand dollars not spent means four hundred thousand in Heithamp´s pocket after the election is over even if she loses. Okay, since she was already behind it would seem logical to some to simply take the money and lose with a wad of cash for later on in life. Some democrat group will hire her after the loss so she has some "walking around" money on the side and all it took was changing one vote on the way out the door. To me, it does sound like something a politician would do.

Just two, #5? There is a whole boatload of obnoxious, repulsive ´Rat females representing the Golden State. And their male counterparts fit into the boat as well.

Heidi´s vote of conscience almost guarantees her retirement from the Senate on 1-3-19. She only won by about 3000 votes in 2012. Hardly a landslide, and Romney didn´t exactly galvanize the electorate that year.

President Trump took a lot of flak from the left for warning that the migrant caravan, heading up to the U.S. from Honduras, had a lot of "stone cold criminals" in its ranks. Here´s a Nov. 26 report from USA Today to show just how insistent the left was with that "narrative": President Donald Trump continued his attacks against a caravan of Central American immigrants [sic] Monday, describing some of them as "stone cold criminals," but his administration provided scant details to back up the president´s assertion.

Out of the blue, socialist congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 29, has started something with outgoing White House chief of staff John Kelly, calling on him to apologize for the "he-said, she-said" scrap he had a while back with Florida Democratic congresswoman Frederica Wilson over the sensitivity of an official phone call to a slain serviceman´s grieving family. Talk about a baseless argument. And talk about a useless fight she has nothing to gain from. She´s not going to get the apology she wants from Kelly, who is unlikely to have been lying, as Wilson claims,

Another day, another dead dissident over in the socialist hellhole of Venezuela. The death of Nelson Martinez in police custody made the news, because no one had ever seen such a high-level official killed off, possibly by bad medical care, which wouldn´t be surprising in a Venezuelan dungeon, or maybe a rubout from the mafia state that´s currently in power. Maybe it was both. It´s likely someone wanted him dead.

What´s a French leader without a rich, buttery serving of appeasement? Here´s a France24 headline: Macron raises minimum wage to appease Yellow Vest protesters That´s what he´s offering, following the big buildup for his national address following at least two weekends of angry populist riots across the country. Oh, there´s a bit of economic tinkering on other things, a tax hike taken back here, a tax-hike delay there, a request that companies (instead of the government) pay workers more cash via bonuses

Is abortion ´the safest procedure?´ The Planned Parenthood propaganda has dined out for years on its claim that legal abortions are the preferable alternative to ´back-alley´ and ´coat-hanger´ abortions. There´s not a Democratic Party convention since 1973 where this hasn´t been shouted to the rafters. Apparently it´s not even true. Planned Parenthood is fighting with every tooth and nail it has to keep abortion reporting requirements ´safe´ from the public eye, and it´s prompting questions about just what they have to hide.

The New York Police Department is planning to introduce a new drone program in New York City and we should all be enthusiastic about this development. The NYPD has assured the city council that the drones will not be used for surveillance and police work, but I think that is exactly what they should be used for. In a city that sees hundreds of murders a year, it makes sense that all of the technology at the police department’s disposal is put to good use. After all, if the drug dealers and gang bangers

The latter came rather uncomfortably close to beating Cruz in the last midterm, 50.9%-48.3%, in the solid red state of Texas.

If you believe, as I do, that the U.N.´s climate agenda is really about empowering unaccountable bureaucrats to divide up the wealth of rich countries, then this information, via Andrew Bolt, is revealing: It´s a feeding frenzy at the UN climate conference. There´s the excuse for taxpayer-paid travel, of course, and the excuse to extort huge donations from the guilty rich: An analysis of delegates by Carbon Brief found Guinea topped the list with 406 delegates, down 86 from last time.

MeToo loudmouth and Bay Area Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris of California has gotten herself into yet another scrap, this one claiming she knew nothing about a $400,000 payoff for a sexual harassment case brought on by one of her top staffers. How very ironic, given how she stuck it to spotless Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh over sex harassment phony claims during his confirmation hearings and tried to make herself the figurehead for being sterling tough against sex harassment. The hypocrisy is thick. According to Fox News: A senior adviser to U.S. Sen.

Donald Trump´s suffocating presence

Another day, another avalanche of news about the President: berating Democratic leaders on camera; unceremoniously announcing the departure of his chief of staff; calling his former Secretary of State “dumb as a rock.” It never lets up. Trump is a ubiquitous, suffocating presence in American life. It wasn’t supposed to be like this. The modern presidency is the framers’ worst nightmare, a flatly unconstitutional concentration of power. As the Trump era has made abundantly clear, the office itself — its size, scope, and prominence in American life — is the driving force of dysfunction in our politics.

Federal prosecutors in New York are investigating President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee amid suspicion that a portion of the $107 million it raised was misspent, according to a report. The Wall Street Journal states the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office is in the beginning stages of probing whether the committee’s most prominent donors made sizable contributions “in exchange for access to the incoming Trump administration, policy concessions or to influence official administration positions.”The Journal reports: The investigation partly arises out of materials seized in the federal probe of former Trump

EXCLUSIVE – President Trump has canceled the White House holiday party for the media, making the decades-old tradition a victim of his increasingly contentious relationship with major news organizations. The annual Christmas-season gathering was a significant perk for those covering the White House, as well as other Washington reporters, anchors and commentators, and New York media executives would regularly fly in for the occasion. At its peak, the invitation-only soirees grew so large that there were two back-to-back events, one for broadcast outlets and one for print organizations.

New York Attorney Gen.-elect Letitia James is buttressing President Trump’s claims that there is a “witch hunt” pursuing him; she told NBC News that she intends to investigate not only the president, but also his family and "anyone" in his circle who may have violated the law. James blustered, "We will use every area of the law to investigate President Trump and his business transactions and that of his family as well,” adding, "We want to investigate anyone in his orbit who has, in fact, violated the law.”NBC listed some of the investigations that James said she plans to pursue:
