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.

We Are Watching A Slow-Motion Coup D’etat
The Federalist, by James Downton    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 5/19/2017 1:36:32     Post Reply
It’s nearly incontrovertible that a slow-motion coup d’etat is now taking place. Since November 9, 2016, forces within the U.S. government, media, and partisan opposition have aligned to overthrow the Electoral College winner, Donald Trump. To achieve this they have undermined the institutions of the Fourth Estate, the bureaucratic apparatus of the U.S. government, and the very nature of a contentious yet affable two-party political system. Unlike the coup d’etat that sees a military or popular figure lead a minority resistance or majority force into power over the legitimate government, this coup d’etat is leaderless and exposes some of the

An extremely disheartened American emailed me documenting all the factions committed to removing Trump from office. She concluded: "I don´t see how President Trump is going to overcome this onslaught of negativity which is waging upon him by those who are casting aspersions upon him for destroying the legacy of our nation´s so-called "first black president" and the detestable woman, "Crooked Hillary" who wanted to continue his failed policies!

Dan Rather on Trump-Russia Special Counsel:

Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” former CBS anchor Dan Rather said the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign was “reassuring” given it makes President Donald Trump “the hunted.” Rather said, “What a news night, almost surreal. And of course dangerous for the country. But in the same token, I do think there is something reassuring about this. For most of the early stages of the Trump presidency, the question begged are we still a country of laws or have we become or are we becoming

   

 

  


 
Trump to Tell Allies to Step

President Donald Trump wants the countries in NATO and U.S. allies in the Persian Gulf to step up their military might, and that’s the predominant message he´ll carry with him throughout the eight-day, five-stop foreign trip he’s embarking on starting Friday. “The United States has shouldered too much of the burden for too long,” a senior administration official said this week to preview the trip. That belief extends from U.S. defense spending, which exceeds that of the other major powers he´ll meet with by at least a factor of 10, to its leadership in the fight against ISIS, to its

Lois G. Lerner and Holly Paz, two key figures in the IRS‘ tea party-targeting, can keep testimony about their role in the targeting secret, at least for now, a federal judge ruled Thursday. The two women had said they feared death threats and other harassment if their depositions in a class action lawsuit against the IRS became public. U.S. District Judge Michael R. Barrett had originally ordered their depositions be sealed, but on Thursday he removed that prohibition and instead said the testimony should be deemed “confidential,” keeping it secret until he can see what the women had to say

Everyone is praising the selection of Robert Mueller as special counsel, but the question is what exactly needs to be investigated. The most common term is "collusion." But what does collusion mean? The order by Assistant Attorney General Rosenstein authorizes Mueller to investigate: (i) any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and (ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation; and (iii) any other matters within the scope of 28 C.F.R. § 600.4(a). 28 C.F.R 600.4(a) states: § 600.4 Jurisdiction.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Thursday that Joe Lieberman would be a "good choice" for FBI director. The senator was asked about Lieberman by reporters upon walking out of a full-Senate meeting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who the Trump administration has said made the case that James Comey should be fired as FBI director. Comey was fired by Trump last week amid conflicting accounts about how the decision was reached. Lieberman, a former senator from Connecticut who was Al Gore´s running mate in 2000, is a top candidate for the position, Trump confirmed Thursday. Graham praised Lieberman as

Trump will also meet with Frank Keating, a former Oklahoma governor, and Richard McFeely, a former top FBI agent, Spicer said during a briefing on Air Force One as Trump returned to Washington after speaking at the US Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut.

The New York Times reported on Tuesday that President Trump allegedly asked former FBI Director James Comey to shut down the investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. The source of the allegation is a memorandum, revealed by an anonymous source, allegedly prepared by Comey regarding a meeting in the Oval Office the day after Flynn was forced to resign for misleading the Vice-President. While the headline is sensational, The New York Times’s report is self-contradictory at times, conflicts with statements made on-the-record and under oath, overhypes the substance of the memorandum, and is irreconcilable with other information in the

Right now, the very best you can say about Donald Trump is that he stinks at this whole president thing — in large part because he keeps creating trouble for himself and entirely on his own. Yes, the media are against him. Yes, the Democrats want his scalp. But everyone inclined to indulge President Trump in his self-pity about how he’s being badly treated by others in Washington and badly served by his own staff is ignoring the basic facts of the political situation he is bungling at present like no one has bungled it before.

Target has long been loved by people because it´s a fun place to shop. At least it used to be a fun place to shop. Customer satisfaction with the total shopping experience at Target has declined for a fourth consecutive period, according to a new survey of 2,500 people done by investment bank Cowen. Declines in customer satisfaction were seen across the board, led by drops in customer service, merchandise selection and product quality.

The sudden death of Roger Ailes (R.I.P.) yesterday is a grim omen for the network he envisioned and built. In the wake of the recent upheavals at Fox News, the conservative cable television network’s ratings are experiencing a precipitous decline from cable news leadership for the first time in the history of the channel. As the rest of the mainstream media continue their efforts to undermine and “resist” the Trump Administration, this development bodes ill for the future -- not only of the unique kind of fair and balanced if right of center reporting pioneered by the Fox News Channel
