The Republican Party has long been panned by its detractors as the party of big money and big donors -- but donation patterns have changed measurably under President Trump, a Fox News analysis of campaign finance data shows. Sixty-one percent of money raised directly by the Trump campaign this election cycle came from small donors (donations under $200), according to Federal Election Commission figures. That is similar to the proportion Trump raised during the 2016 election cycle, when 65 percent of donations were under $200. And this is dramatically higher than previous Republican nominees. Mitt Romney raised 26 percent of his direct contributions from small donations in 2012,

The GOP is no longer the Country Club GOP. The center of gravity of the Party is not working people, while the Democrats are the Rich and the people who are reliant on the Government.

The small donations translate to actual votes, even though my budget doesn't consider $200 small. The big donors cover both bets unless they are demented dems and can't stand the thought of giving anything to PDT.

Five men were arrested after cops caught them on the roof of Trump World Tower in Midtown, police said Monday. The group was spotted on top of the 72-story residential building on United Nations Plaza just after 8:20 p.m. Sunday, cops said. The group was reportedly snapping photos while dangling their legs over the edge of the building, according to NBC New York. The five men — Justin Missner, 25, Samuel Burns, 20, Thomas Durante, 22, Cameron Varela, 19, and Alexander Scott Patterson-Jones, 21 — each face a charge of third-degree criminal trespassing, cops said.
De Blasio gets 0 percent in Iowa State Fair
‘corn kernel’ poll

There’s not even a kernel of hope for Mayor Bill de Blasio in this decidedly unscientific Iowa State Fair poll. Even after his food- and game-filled Sunday at the fair — where he gave a 20-minute pitch to voters at the famed Political Soapbox — the New York City mayor is registering at 0 percent in the fair’s corn kernel poll. Attendees at the fair over the age of 18 can place a kernel of corn into a jar to select their top caucus choice. Around 6 p.m. Sunday, after the mayor’s tour around the fairgrounds was wrapping up, The Post counted about 23 kernels in his jar.

President Trump on Tuesday visited a massive new plant in western Pennsylvania that converts the region’s huge natural gas deposits into plastics — saying, “This would have never happened without me.” Trump spoke at Shell’s nearly completed Petrochemicals Complex in Monaca, which will provide hundreds of jobs to the struggling region near the Ohio border. But critics claim it also will become the largest air polluter in that part of the Keystone State, an area hit hard by manufacturing job losses and hungry for investment.

Back on August 4, 2019 our editorial friends at the New York Times declared that “We Have a White Nationalist Terrorist Problem.” (H/T C.J. Hopkins) Of course they think that. Bless their hearts. Just imagine how things look from the New York Times building. Here they were, skimming along as unconcernedly as a seagull, basking in the sunset glow of the First Black President and finally, after 20,000 years of bigotry, gay marriage, and then the roof falls in. Some outer-borough yahoo gets elected President of the United States. What’s the first thing that the Good People would think? Exactly. It’s a conspiracy.

It should be clear to all Americans by now that the word the left loves to spew indiscriminately -- racism -- often now means nothing, absolutely nothing. That word is meant to be an accusation of the worst order, an epithet that is supposed to destroy all those so charged. But now it's used so frequently, it has no meaning at all. It's like the f-word, overused and merely a sign of one's lack of a wider vocabulary. Like the overused f-word, calling someone a 'racist' is a sign of sloppy, uncritical thinking.

Joe Biden’s people say that Joe is “gaffe prone” and always has been, and shrug it off. That’s just who he is, no big deal. It’s perplexing how they casually dismiss Biden’s verbal miscues but adamantly insist on Donald Trump’s as revealing deep, dark, ugly things. Actually, Joe’s gaffes are more like lies than gaffes. They pop out of his mouth as gaffes, but when he hears them and realizes what he just said, he doubles down rather than laughing at himself and rephrasing on the spot. “Did I really just say that? That’s probably overstating. Let me try again.” Or smacking himself upside the head with a grimace.

A man who lost his wife of 22 years during the El Paso Walmart shooting has invited the public to her funeral services, as he has no remaining family. Antonio Basco, who called his 63-year-old wife, Margie Reckard, "an angel," plans to celebrate her life with members of the community later this week. Reckard was one of the 22 victims of the mass shooting on August 6. “When I met her she was an angel and she still is,” Basco told KFOX14. “I was supposed to be the strong one, but I found out I’m the weak one, and she’s going to be missed a lot.”

A National Guard sergeant traveled across the world for the birth of his son, but if it weren’t for a stranger’s “big heart,” he wouldn’t have made it after local flights were canceled because of bad weather. Sgt. Seth Craven’s journey began Monday morning in Afghanistan, then flying out to Kuwait and finally landing in Philadelphia at around 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday. His wife, Julie, was scheduled for a Caesarian delivery early Friday morning, back home in Charleston, W.Va. While Seth had intended to reach home on Wednesday night, his plane was grounded because of a storm. The harsh weather didn’t stop there.

Abrams announced Tuesday she would not enter the crowded Democratic presidential primary, and would instead focus her efforts in the year-and-a-half before Election Day on combating voter suppression and boosting participation in the 2020 census. “I’ve just come to the decision that

Council Bluffs, Iowa—Democratic voters here love Mayor Pete, but they may be penalizing him because he’s gay. It’s not that they hold it against Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana, but they fear the rest of the country may not be ready for a 37-year-old, married, openly gay man to sit in the White House, so they are reluctant to help him win the party’s presidential nomination. “Pete Buttigieg is interesting to me, but, honestly, he is probably not electable, and the last thing I want is Donald Trump in office,” said David Cline. “I do believe his sexuality is an issue for folks, which is too bad.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez offered her opinion on whether President Trump's supporters are racist during an interview with Crooked Media's Pod Save America podcast. "First of all, the biggest mistake that we have — and it's a trap that gets set by the Right, whether intentionally or unintentionally — is just the frame of asking, 'Is blank racist?'" the New York Democrat explained, arguing the conversation needs to be about racism itself, not the people who ascribe to it. "Like all winning political phenomena ... they rely on coalition building," she continued.

When it was first reported that pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein had died in a maximum-security prison, supposedly by suicide, the Internet was immediately ablaze with conspiracy theories. That's not so strange considering that several people had warned beforehand that Epstein had dirt on many important people; people who would be well served by his untimely death. An autopsy has now found, the Washington Post reports, that Epstein "sustained multiple breaks in his neck bones, according to two people familiar with the findings." And that's rather... interesting...

Proving once again they're absolutely clueless on firearms, nearly 200 House Democrats have indicated their support for legislation banning all semi-automatic firearms nationwide. They aren't just talking about the dreaded AR-15 here. Every new Glock, outlawed. My dad's old .22 Browning target pistol, which my 13-year-old insists I leave to him in my will, would be among the last of its kind. And -- try not to think about this too hard, or you'll cry -- the Colt 1911 .45, perhaps the American sidearm, would be no more. We'll get revolvers and bolt-action rifles and that's about it.
