Ex-spy Valerie Plame congressional
campaign is suddenly in trouble

Former CIA agent Valerie Plame's status as a shoo-in to win a congressional seat in northern New Mexico is now deeply imperiled amid charges she's an outsider from Washington who knows too little about the district she seeks to represent. Plame is running in the Democratic primary to replace Democrat Ben Ray Lujan, the highest-ranking Hispanic lawmaker in the House, in the state's 3rd Congressional District, home to 15 Pueblo tribes and the Navajo and Jicarilla Apache nations, with a 41% Hispanic and 19% Native American population. Lujan, who has held the seat since 2009, announced a run for Senate in April last year, drawing prominent Hispanic candidates into the primary.

Last time I saw a photo of her she was a Blond. I would imagine she would stand out in a sea of American Indians! They know a Fake when they see one. I hope they kick her back to Washington where she belongs!

I'm sure the 'Fiddler on the Roof' comment will get her a lot of votes. She couldn't be in a more wrong place to run for office. She would do much better in a DC Swamp district.

My district. Lujan has always been a Pelosi lap dog, he only represents the people in this district that are hispanic or native American. The rest of us he has no use for, mainly because pandering to white conservatives doesn't earn you points with the democrat party. He is a jerk, she's a big jerk, and meanwhile the NW portion of the district will get no representation because of the pandering that has gone on to the hispanics and natives by the democrats. No matter who we get it will be a democrat and they will again pander to the hispanics and natives. Hopeless, because a Republican doesn't stand a chance in much of this state.

A substandard, promiscuous CIA employee who would display similary qualities in the Senate. She decided to attempt the Carpetbagger techniques of Hillary Clinton and Mittens Romney to get her nose under the tent. At least she made no pretenses and is running as a Dem.

In this state she was in trouble when she didn't notice the last name of her competition. Like Hillary she thought she would 'carpetbag' with her famous name recognition and receive votes. Plame took off her cloak and dagger opted for a wigwarm like the other white eyes running for president. When you go to Santa Fe you better know who wields the power Lujan is one of them. What the CIA desk jockey should have done was hook up with Ali Megraw and stay on Canyon Road doing shopping and stay out New Mexico politics. This is some good news.

Republicans in New Mexico have to get woke and quickly. The spouting of socialism programs here by Democrats is like passing out candy to children. Many Native Americans and Hispanics are dependent on the state for many programs. They're families are kept alive by them. BUT they are not growing with the rest of the country. This is a poor and dependent blue state and the Dems want to keep it that way. Like Blacks who are now finally leaving the plantation, the Republicans should encourage Native and Hispanic groups in NM by saying now is your time to move ahead with this economy. "What do you have to lose." Also, to break the chain of student loan debt and promote young folks to join the military. What a great opportunity for young people! I wish I was 18 years old again to join. Valerie Plame is a carpetbagger who lives in Santa Fe, where most of the Swells in the state live in high-end homes and where former hippies, feminists and environmentalists reside. She'll go out to the Reservations wearing her $300 boots and cowboy hat and buy their vote...another lying phony pandering for votes from the less advantaged. There are a few good Republicans in the state but we don't know who they are. There are unknowns entering politics for the first time starting out by running for the U S senate. What! This state could be used as a test model on how to turn a blue state red. It will take two or three rallies here by President Trump to gain some traction, but it's doable, especially in Las Cruces, the southern part of the state and Albuquerque. I would like to see Susana Martinez throw her hat into the ring for Senator. Where is she? When she was governor she had an attractive and smart Lieutenant Governor, John Chavez who also could win that position but he too is MIA. My guess is, it's about money. The Republican party in NM needs to be re-imagined, restructured and energized.

"highest-ranking Hispanic lawmaker" Why should any individual in congress have more "rank" and power simply because they, personally, have held on to a seat longer? This is the real problem in our government. A congressman represents his constituents, and all citizens are supposed to have equal representation. As it stands, an idiot in San Francisco who elects Crazy Nancy over and over again has much more sway through his representative than someone who votes in a fresh, new voice from some other state.

Actually, husband Joe Wilson died last September. Republican won the seat in the 3rd district in 1997, in a special election to replace Bill Richardson who Bill Clinton nominated for UN ambassador when the Green candidate split the leftie vote. The democrats promptly co-opted the Greens by adopting a lot of their radical platform. Today the NM Green p[arty could hold its state convention in a phone booth. A blonde haired, blue eyed Gringa will only win the dem nomination if there are enough Hispanics running to fracture the vote.

There are 10 Dems in this primary - Plame is unlikely to win, no matter how many green chiles she can down. New Mexico politics is very personal, in my experience. I don't see how she relates to the constituents in this district.

Actually they don't mind carpetbaggers up there in the northern half of the state. They embraced super-carpetbagger and anchor baby Bill Richardson when he came to NM to run for and win Congress (and later Governor.) Richardson actually hates New Mexico (preferring the environs of his homeland, OLD Mexico and Washington DC region ). When he expressed a desire to run for office himself, His mentor, Congressman F. Bradford Morse told him to move to Santa Fe where the voters are dumb enough to elect anyone with a D next to their name and a 'hispanic' background. Plame's problem is not that she is a carpetbagger, but because she isn't 'hispanic'.

The Trump administration is at it again. To hear New York Times reporter Coral Davenport tell it, this White House is engaged in yet another nihilistic assault on the environment. This week, the administration “finalized a rule to strip away environmental protections for streams, wetlands, and groundwater,” the Times notes. (Snip)In May 2015, the Environmental Protection Agency unilaterally announced its intention to expand its capacity to regulate navigable waterways and their tributaries. This new rule allowed the agency to block the development of privately owned lands with a “significant nexus” to a waterway, a definition so expansive it included streams that ran only seasonally or underground, bone-dry 100-year floodplains,
Joe Biden’s Confounding Candidacy 5 replies

A lunchtime town meeting in the college town of Ames, home to Iowa State, should attract a sizable crowd less than two weeks before the Iowa caucuses—especially when a former vice president, who is leading in some of the recent Iowa polls, headlines the event. But Joe Biden is perhaps the most confounding candidate in this Democratic race. By my charitable count, only 250 would-be caucus-goers attended his event in Ames on Tuesday. They were treated to such Biden staples as a paean to dead senators he once worked with: Iowa’s John Culver died in 2018, Ted Kennedy in 2009, and Tom Eagleton in 2007.

Jerry Nadler must have missed the day in law school where they teach you about persuasion. The House Democrat made a critical error early in the trial of President Trump. He didn't just say that Republican senators, who voted to begin the proceedings without calling witnesses, were part of a cover up. He said they had committed treason: "So far, I'm sad to say, I see a lot of senators voting for a coverup. Voting to deny witnesses and obviously a treacherous vote. A vote against honest consideration of the evidence against the president. A vote against an honest trial. A vote against the United States." Easy, Tiger. All Republicans did

“America has an abiding interest in stemming Russian expansionism and resisting any nation’s efforts to remake the map of Europe by dint of military force, even as we have tens of thousands of troops stationed there,” Rep. Adam Schiff said in the Democrats' opening statement during the Senate impeachment trial. “Moreover, as one witness put it during our impeachment inquiry, the United States aids Ukraine and her people so that we can fight Russia over there and we don’t have to fight Russia here.” Schiff did not elaborate on how providing lethal aid to Ukraine would prevent a Russian Red Dawn-style invasion of America, although we don't expect one soon.

A political Halley’s Comet flew over the Capitol this week. Even politics junkies averted their gaze. The Senate impeachment trial of a sitting president, just the third such event in the history of the republic, strangely acted as soporific rather than stimulant. Richard Burr led a contingent of colleagues using fidget spinners to stay alert. Rand Paul allegedly drew a picture of the capitol building as House members orated. A bipartisan group of senators reportedly violated rules by wearing Apple watches or using digital devices. Others stretched and paced.

At least two of the FBI’s surveillance applications to secretly monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page lacked probable cause, according to a newly declassified summary of a Justice Department assessment released Thursday by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC). The DOJ's admission essentially means that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant authorizations to surveil Page, when stripped of the FBI's misinformation, did not meet the necessary legal threshold and should never have been issued. Democrats, including California Rep. Adam Schiff, had previously insisted the Page FISA warrants met "rigorous" standards for probable cause, and mocked Republicans for suggesting otherwise.

MEXICO CITY — One year ago, Mexico’s often chaotic southern border appeared relatively orderly: Mexican authorities processed thousands of U.S.-bound migrants for humanitarian visas, allowing them to travel north legally. The free-transit regimen was a drastic change of policy pushed by a new Mexican president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who had denounced his predecessors for having done what he called the dirty work of Washington in deterring migrants’ northbound passage. But this week, López Obrador’s government greeted migrants in a more hostile fashion. Mexican National Guard troops in full riot gear blocked their way and fired tear gas canisters to disperse those seeking to breach the nation’s border with Guatemala.

President Donald Trump's defense team consistently drilled down on one key point as it began opening arguments in his impeachment trial on Saturday: the evidence against Trump is limited, at best, and he can't be impeached because the public hasn't heard direct evidence of his misconduct from him or anyone close to him.(Snip)Republicans, meanwhile, say that if the evidence against Trump is as overwhelming as House Democrats say it is, the Senate doesn't need to call new witnesses. But on Saturday, Trump's lawyers seemed to bolster Democrats' case by repeatedly claiming that they hadn't heard from a single witness who had "direct contact" with the president.
