Blue Collar Tough Guy’ John Fetterman
Lived off Parents’ Money Until His Mid-40s

Original Article

Pennsylvania Democrat U.S. Senate nominee John Fetterman’s “blue collar” image is being called into question after reports revealed he lived off of his parents’ money well into his mid-40s. Although Fetterman runs ads that purport him to be a “blue collar tough guy,” his parents reportedly financially supported him while he served as mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania, for 13 years. Fetterman, who has acknowledged his “cushy” suburban childhood, has openly admitted to the financial contributions his parents gave him as an adult.

Comments:

This guy is a Marxist fraud. Hopefully the people of PA will see him for what he really is - a spoiled politician who makes it harder for common people to get ahead, while filling his pockets with money from others.

This guy is just altogether weird. Heart problems that he’s been caught lying about. Living off Mommy and Daddy while he draws an $1800 a year salary as the Mayor of Hicksville, clearly not meant to be a full time job. What, exactly, do the Democrats think this dude brings to the table?

My 38 year old step son told me in so many words that his life plan was to hang in until he inherits Momma's cash. I neglected to mention that I'm the executor. He has an autistic sister who needs to be cared for after we're gone. This is a snowflake who is in for a shock.

Just remember, Democrats don't care what you think of them, they have plenty of other people's cash to dole out and spread around to influence campaign contributions and those who receive a "benefit" their vote. None lost their job, were laid off, nor did any lose even one thin dime of pay during COVID. So, should not be surprising to see this guy act entitled like many in politics, particularly progressive Democrats.

The iconic Lakerman - that would be me - has been posting and warning you people about Fetterman for some time now. He has carefully fabricated a political path and history that could very well win him a seat in the U.S. Senate. Fetterman is a physically imposing person, at 6'7", 350 pounds (down from a high of 450 pounds) college football player, who uses the LBJ physical style of retail campaigning. (LBJ, at 6'4" tall, 250 pounds, would grip your hand and not let go, pulling you to him, and he would tower over you as he talked. Google LBJ photos and you will see what I mean.) Fetterman went to Braddock, population 1885, as a participant in a domestic peace corps type program, and after he met every resident during his hitch, he ran for Mayor on the dimocrat ticket. He won the primary by one vote, won the fall election and was mayor of the little town. But Fetterman had big plans, as big as his girth. And he could aim high, thanks to Daddy's money. (John D. Rockefeller IV, who changed his first name to Jay, did something similar in West Virginia.) Fetterman ran in the dimocrat primary 4 years ago against a sitting Lt. Gov. - so brash and unheard of, he won! And he won in the November election, but disdainfully refused to move to Harrisburg, since the Lt.Gov. of Pa. doesn't really have anything to do. Fetterman continued to maintain his residence in a converted gas station in Braddock - which is an upscale property for Braddock, a dying mill town, with his illegal immigrant African-Brazilian wife and children. - He is a dimocrat socialist, far to the left of Bernie Sanders and the Squad. And the only barrier to success in this election is his poor health. He had a stroke two months ago, which was downplayed by his attending physician (no surprise! See Biden, Jo) but he now admits that it was nearly fatal. He has a pacemaker and defibrillator now, and has cardiomyopathy. In short, he is a mess. If he can't do the retail campaigning, he might lose. But Dr. Oz, so far, has run an ineffective campaign.

Trump announcing 2024 bid before midterms

Posted by Solid_Oak 7/19/2022 10:44:42 AM Post Reply
Donald Trump’s flirtation with announcing a 2024 White House bid before the midterm elections is sending signals of self-doubt and political vulnerability, with Republican operatives saying the former president is motivating challenges to his supremacy over the party. Trump would begin any presidential primary with overwhelming advantages in popularity, name identification, and resources. But pulling the trigger on a third White House campaign prior to Election Day this November, as Trump concedes is possible, might boomerang. Rather than box out potential 2024 opponents and clear the field, such a move by the former president could reek of fear, inviting more competition for the Republican nomination.
Warnock collects $17.2M, Walker $6.2M

ATLANTA - Republican Herschel Walker’s $6.2 million in fundraising looked impressive when unveiled Wednesday, until Democrat Raphael Warnock rolled out his $17.2 million total a half-hour later. The dueling Senate campaign numbers underlined two truths. Georgia is again going to be one of the most expensive races to run for office in 2022, and Democrats are building a strong fundraising advantage. Like Warnock, Democrat Stacey Abrams heavily outraised incumbent Republican Brian Kemp in the race for governor, collecting almost $50 million compared to the $31 million Kemp has brought in over a longer period. Abrams and Warnock plan to run closely linked campaigns, echoing many of the same themes.

Republican pollster Rick Shaftan is like a lot of political junkies: He looks to his mother for hints on what real America is thinking. Lately, their talks have been about former President Donald Trump and whether he should run again. SNIP Of course, Trump does make some news, but it's mostly complaining about the 2020 election results and cheering on some 140 GOP candidates he has endorsed for 2022 who have won so far. But for the 2024 race, Shaftan’s mother and millions of other Republicans are starting to look past Trump to others more engaged on problems shocking the nation and taking on President Joe Biden.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has closed the gap significantly between himself and Donald Trump in a hypothetical matchup in 2024, bringing him within single digits of the former president. Among registered Republican voters, about 45% said they would vote for Trump compared to 36% who leaned toward DeSantis, according to the most recent YouGov/Yahoo News poll, a 9-point difference and the closest any challenger has ever gotten to the former president in a GOP primary poll. The most recent numbers tighten previous polls that showed DeSantis trailing by 16 points in February and 23 points the month before that.

Based on a casual reading of the polls, Donald Trump looks to have smooth sailing to the Republican presidential nomination in 2024 and the chance to erase the stink of losing to Joe Biden that he so covets. But if that’s the case, why does Trump seem so panicky these days? Simple: Trump is in trouble, and — when you dig into the numbers — his grip on the GOP nomination is getting more tenuous. It is Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) who has all the momentum.

In February, American basketball star Brittney Griner was arrested at a Moscow airport after attempting to bring cannabis oil into the country, which is illegal according to Russian law. In the almost six months since being apprehended, Griner has lingered in a less-than-comfortable prison cell. On Thursday, the legal proceedings of the case came to a close when a Russian court delivered a guilty verdict, followed by a harsh sentence of nine years behind bars. None of Thursday’s developments should have come as a surprise to anyone. As we’ve noted before, 99% of all Russian prosecutions end with a guilty verdict, and with a maximum available sentence of ten years,
Increasing The IRS Annual Budget By Seven

The talk in the media is about a “beefed-up” IRS. The IRS budget for FY 2022 totals nearly $14 billion ($11.9 billion in appropriated funds) with a full-time equivalent (FTE) staff ceiling of 79,808 (75,533 from appropriated funding.) Now, the Democrat-controlled Congress, at the behest of the Biden Administration, wants to take that up an additional almost $80 billion, with 1% going to Department of the Treasury offices other than the IRS. That adds up to nearly $93 billion, seven times this year’s budget. SEVEN TIMES.

The United States is preparing a new $1bn security assistance package for Ukraine, which will include munitions for long-range weapons and armoured medical transport vehicles, according the Reuters news agency. The package would be one of the largest so far and is expected to be announced as early as Monday, three sources briefed on the matter told Reuters.

The officials, speaking to Reuters on the condition of anonymity, said that President Joe Biden had not yet signed the next weapons package, and cautioned that weapons packages can change in value and content before they are signed.
