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.

“Never Trump” writer John Podhoretz, who once threw a hissy fit at Breitbart News over an article that was 100 percent factually correct, came to embattled CNN’s defense on Monday evening. Even though Podhoretz admitted that CNN published a “fake news” story that forced three of its employees to resign on Monday evening, he said yelling “Fake News” at the network is “unfair.” (Tweets) On Monday, three CNN employees—the author of the “fake news” piece and his two editors—resigned after Breitbart News’ Matt Boyle’s investigative report on Friday shredded a CNN story, based on a single anonymous source, that falsely

The secret-taping squad at Project Veritas are making sure CNN has a bad public-relations week. On the heels of three journalists resigning over an unsubstantiated online report on Russia and Trump, CNN Health producer John Bonifield is caught on tape admitting that CNN is producing news for liberals, and that talking about “cutesy little ethics” is “adorable” when cable news is a “business.” PV says the conversations were taped in June. Liberal journalists usually respond to PV videos in two ways. First, they charge the videos are "deceptively edited," so somehow what the target says doesn´t mean anything; and second,

The White House on Monday formally sent the nomination of Christopher Wray to be FBI director to the Senate. The Justice Department released a statement from Wray, who said he was “honored and humbled” by the nomination and looks forward to his confirmation by the Senate. “From my earliest days working with agents as a line prosecutor to my time working with them at the Department of Justice in the aftermath of 9/11, I have been inspired by the men and women of the FBI – inspired by their professionalism, integrity, courage, and sacrifice for the public.” Wray said. “If

The al-Qaeda chapter that hacked an Atlanta man to death two years ago said in a new "code of conduct" for jihadists that killing American nationals in target countries is a "foremost priority" for the terror group. Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent was formally launched in 2014 after al-Qaeda meticulously brought various militant groups under its umbrella to concentrate on operations in Burma, Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. They were only designated a terrorist organization by the United States in June 2016, a full 16 months after the murder of Avijit Roy. In February 2015, Bangladeshi-American secularist blogger Roy was hacked

President Trump and high-level administration officials are using a lighter touch to help the Republican healthcare bill through the Senate as compared with the House, putting tremendous pressure on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as skeptical GOP lawmakers threaten to defect on a key procedural vote this week. "Sink or swim, this bill rests on the shoulders of leadership," one GOP Senate aide told the Washington Examiner. "It is their product with minimal White House involvement." The White House has publicly backed the bill and expressed optimism that an Obamacare overhaul could advance before lawmakers leave for the July 4 recess

Manhattan´s District Attorney has slammed new Republican legislation that ´plays into the hands of terrorists´ by allowing anyone with a firearm licence to carry concealed weapons in other states- even in those with stricter licensing requirements. Cy Vance said that it was a ´dangerous ´ bill that is ´supported I am sure by ISIS.´ He made the comments yesterday while speaking to John Catsimatidis on his 970 AM radio show about the GOP plan. He said that security would be seriously compromised by the legislation because some states - like New York - have stricter licencing laws than others yet

Senate Republicans´ plan to repeal and replace Obamacare has put Medicaid in the spotlight, thanks to proposals including a move to let states impose work requirements on low-income recipients. Medicaid "went way above the poverty line to many able-bodied Americans," White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told ABC News program "This Week" on Sunday. "If they are able-bodied and they want to work, then they´ll have employer-sponsored benefits like you and I do." Yet most Medicaid recipients who can work already are working even without such a requirement, according to data from the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, which notes that

President Donald Trump broke a long standing White House tradition of hosting a dinner to celebrate Ramadan, a Muslim religious holiday. Hosting an Iftar dinner to mark the end of Ramadan fasting is a tradition that started in the Clinton years and was continued by Presidents Bush and Obama. Over the past two decades presidents have honored the holy day by hosting such a dinner. Thomas Jefferson was the first president noted in history to host Itfar in 1805 with an invitation to the dinner stating ´Dinner will be on the table precisely at sun-set – ´ the invitation read. ´The favour

I’ve been talking about the importance of protecting against voting-machine hacks since 2002. And now, finally, people are starting to take me seriously. The move to paperless voting started in response to the Florida “hanging chad” fiasco in the 2000 presidential election. Some people (like me) thought this was a mistake, but such concerns were often dismissed. Now, apparently, you can’t be paranoid enough. As Politico’s Bob King noted, while 10 years ago critics of paperless voting were called paranoid, now both parties are worried. It remains true that there is no actual evidence that a single vote was changed by hackers

The Supreme Court said Monday that most of President Trump’s travel ban executive order can go into effect, delivering the first major victory to the new administration on perhaps his most controversial policy to date. Justices said the lower court rulings that blocked Mr. Trump’s policy were far too broad, and said the president can begin to enforce his ban against foreigners who don’t already have some ties to the U.S. That means the president can begin denying visas to visitors from six countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — who don’t already have family in the U.S., or some other prior connection such as
