RNC raises record-setting $41.5M haul
The Hill, by Mark Hensch

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/21/2017 10:12:49 AM

The Republican National Committee (RNC) on Friday announced it raised $41.5 million in the first three months of 2017, its strongest-ever total for the first quarter following a presidential race. “Our record-setting fundraising pace has been fueled by grassroots enthusiasm for President Trump and the Republican Party,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel said in a statement. “The RNC is in a strong position to make an impact in key races in 2017 and 2018 as we plan to take a leading role in preserving our congressional majorities and prepare to reelect President Trump in 2020.” The RNC said it brought

My apprehension is whether the RNC will use the money to re-stock the swamp with the same critters and vermin that we elected President Trump to drain.

If the Republican Congress doesn´t quit fiddling around and get solidly behind PDJT´s agenda, they may see their fundraising come to a sudden stop.

Ronna, I agree about Trump, not so certain it was the RNC.
And given the RNC´s refusal to listen to their base, "Repeal" no replace, Build/Fund the Wall, eliminate the unconstitutional depts, no H1Bs, no mooslime refugees, &etc., they may very well see the money dry up, and get sent directly to constitutionalist candidates, and not the RNC.

During the early 2000´s I believed every word the RNC told me. Then I grew up. The latest begging strip diatribe was like the one received prior to the primary that only wanted to destroy Trump. I wrote all over the 4-page crapfest to leave me alone and shut up forever. Not one more dime then or ever. If there is a way I can vote with my purse directly to Mr. Trump, let me know. There has to be a way to show appreciation for all he has done in the first hundred or so days. More than any other Republican has EVER done or promised.

It´s getting too hard to tell if the earnest Republican candidate soliciting your money is just another swamp dwelling RINO, that, like a chameleon, will change it´s stripes after its election. I wholeheartedly agree with #1 & #2. The RNC doles out money to really questionable candidates, and then you look at the candidates Ryan & McConnell push, and you just save your money for the real thing!

I haven´t donated to the RNC since 2010 when they rejected the Tea Party. My donations go directly to the candidates.

We had some good candidates running against McConnell and McCain.The RNC buried them. I won´t be a part of that. Think how much better off we would be without those two RINO´s.

I don´t know if it´s the RNC or Mark Hensch is at fault for this article.

I don´t mind the announcement. It´s almost a ´good thing´; but the language used is insulting.

Record-setting HAUL ???

I read this to say: ´The RNC suckered the public into ponying up a boat load of money they can waist.´

I don´t see the; ´We appreciate your sacrifice to the Trump doctrine and RNC cause.´

These kind of articles make me uncomfortable - For Instance: After giving money to the guy at the gas station who said he was trying to get back to his pregnant wife - and then witness him walk into the next door liquor store and come out with a bottle of cheap wine.

It seems like they gloat about the numbers and don´t care that you are eating that can of soup that´s been in the cupboard for months, instead of going out to a restaurant. They don´t understand that it´s YOUR MONEY they´re spending.

The main reason that donations are up is that Donald Trump has given the party´s conservative base enthusiasm. They had better get with the President´s agenda or the money will dry up again.

Fox News may have sent former CEO Roger Ailes packing in July of last year, but that has not slowed down the female employees at the network who have come forward alleging that they were sexually harassed by the disgraced executive.

President Donald Trump recently asked for Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy´s resignation. Slate wrote that Murthy had been well-known as an Obamacare supporter and advocate of gun control, saying that “gun violence [is] a public health issue.” Afterward, a hubbub ensued over the resulting advancement of Deputy Surgeon General Rear Adm. Sylvia Trent-Adams to the position, even if only temporarily. The criticism came despite the fact that in a Facebook post announcing his resignation, Murthy wrote that with Trent-Adams as acting surgeon general, the “nation is in capable and compassionate hands”: (FB Post) So why would anyone have a problem

France could face its own ´Frexit´ in the future after far-right leader Marine Le Pen and independent centrist Emmanuel Macron beat the two main parties to go head to head in the upcoming presidential elections. Macron won 23.7 per cent of the vote and Le Pen followed closely behind with 21.7 per cent. But it is thought that Le Pen´s chances of winning are limited as supporters for Republican candidate and third place contender, Francois Fillon, will support Macron. Celebrating his victory, Macron said: ´The French have expressed their desire for change. We´re clearly turning a page in French political

The $30,000 fee Northeastern Illinois University was going to pay former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett was just the latest in a series of big fees the financially troubled state school has paid to snag prominent graduation speakers, records show. Despite its money troubles — a Wall Street credit agency just dropped Northeastern deeper into “junk-bond” status — the state university has handed out five-figure fees to each of the speakers at its May commencement events the past four years. That’s in sharp contrast to what’s done at other state schools, also facing tight-money times, including the three University of

WASHINGTON — Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says that it´s absolutely possible for someone to be a member of the Democratic Party and also be against abortion. "Of course," she told Chuck Todd when asked on Sunday´s "Meet The Press." "I have served many years in Congress with members who have not shared my very positive — my family would say aggressive — position on promoting a woman´s right to choose."

The little tent of the Democratic Party just got smaller, as DNC chairman Tom Perez has called for all Democrats to walk in lockstep with Planned Parenthood on the question of abortion rights, effectively ruling out the possibility of “pro-life Democrats.” “Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health,” Perez said in a statement. “That is not negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state.” “At a time when women’s rights are under assault from the White House, the Republican Congress, and in

Sixty-seven percent of Americans say the Democratic Party is out of touch with their concerns — that’s more than those who think the Republican Party or President Trump are out of touch with most Americans’ concerns, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll. The national poll found that 62 percent of respondents feel the Republican Party is out of touch with most Americans’ concerns, while 58 percent view President Trump as out of touch. ABC News notes that in March 2014, 48 percent said the Democrats were out of touch with most Americans’ concerns. Three years later, 67 percent of

New details are emerging about the FBI’s arrangement with the former British spy who compiled the infamous opposition research dossier on Donald Trump. According to The New York Times, FBI agents met in early October with the former spy, Christopher Steele, to discuss his future work on the dossier. Steele had started compiling research in June on Trump’s potential ties to Russia. He was working for Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm that was a client of an ally of Hillary Clinton’s. The Times reports that Steele and the FBI settled on a $50,000 payout if the ex-MI6 agent could

President Barack Obama will be in Chicago on Monday to discuss community organization and civic engagement.

A review of Donald Trump´s business career would lead one to say that he has always over-promised and under-delivered. Whether his long list of bankruptcies in the ever-profitable casino business, the failures of his "university,´ steak, vodka or clothing lines, there has been a history of putting himself first, while ignoring the needs of his constituents. We may be seeing that play out in his approach to government, as well. As in business, Trump has a constituency of one … himself … just ask his stock and bond investors, his suppliers, contractors, laborers, or even his customers. Unlike Trump, they rarely,

Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers

The episode was captured, in part, on video. The encounter, at San Francisco International Airport, occurred while the woman was boarding a Texas-bound flight. The attendant, whose name was not released by the airline, grabbed the stroller from the woman, who was carrying 15-month-old twins, a passenger who was nearby said.

WASHINGTON — The day before he upended the 2016 election, James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision. Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed

The September 2016 article in Politico championing Hillary Clinton’s use of "data analytics" now looks—how shall we put it?—rather premature. Politico swooned that computer algorithms "underlie nearly all of the Clinton campaign´s most important strategic decisions." Computer guru Elan Kriegel had crunched the numbers for campaign manager Robby Mook, allowing Team Clinton to precisely target her potential voters and thus not waste one dime on appealing to the deplorables. "Clintonites saw it as their secret weapon in building an insurmountable delegate lead over Bernie Sanders," Politico reported.

What could possibly motivate Maxine Waters to claim twice that she never called for Donald Trump´s impeachment when the video evidence is so compelling? It is one thing for conservative websites to call her out, but even MSNBC, the broadcast leader in Trump-hatred, is taking notice of the absolute falsity of her claim. Yesterday, in an on-air discussion among Hallie Jackson, Craig Melvin, and Mark Murray, the California congresswoman was explicitly called out for her denial of reality: JACKSON: "... pretty strong words from somebody else on the other side of the aisle.
