With the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh, there were rumors that the Supreme Court Justice nomination process would cause the mid-term elections to flip either way. If Judge Kavanaugh was confirmed, it would help Republicans and if he wasn’t confirmed it would help Democrats.
The results certainly speak for itself. Democrats are now getting blindsided by the numbers. Republicans have come swinging back and better than ever.
“Republican Josh Hawley leads incumbent Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill by eight points in a new poll released Thursday by pro-Hawley SuperPAC Missouri Rising Action. This is a ten point jump for Hawley from the PAC’s June poll.
Hawley pulled 52 percent support to McCaskill’s 44 percent in the new poll of 600 voters, conducted by Jim McLaughlin of McLaughlin & Associates from September 29-October 2. The result demonstrates a ten point jump for Hawley since Missouri Rising Action’s previous poll of the race in June. The previous poll had McCaskill up over Hawley 46-42.
McCaskill ranked with just 42 percent favorability to 51 percent unfavorability in the new poll. Hawley was ranked 41 percent favorable to just 33 percent unfavorable. Independents surveyed supported Hawley 51 to 39. This is up from the previous poll, which showed independents supporting Hawley by a much more narrow 39 to 38 percent.
A Missouri Rising Action release of the poll identified respondents as 36 percent Republican, 34 percent Democrat, and 30 percent Independent or other. The PAC’s Executive Director Brian Rogers said of the poll:
These fresh numbers indicate that Josh Hawley is gaining momentum at exactly the right time as Missouri voters tune into this important race. The Democrats’ hysterical attacks on Judge Kavanaugh have hurt Democrats like Claire McCaskill whose states voted decisively for President Trump in 2016. This will be a tight race, but Missourians are now more ready than ever to replace Claire McCaskill with a senator who will represent their values and interests in Washington – Josh Hawley.
The PAC paired the release of the new poll with an announcement that it is launching a one million dollar “grassroots” get-out-the-vote initiative in cooperation with partner data analytics firm WPAi next week in support of Hawley. The group will focus on turning out key voter segments. The campaign will target voters identified by WPAi with customized messages communicated through “digital advertising, direct mail, and turnout texting, and phone calls.”
Missouri Rising Action reported,
“Today, Missouri Rising Action released the results of a new poll conducted by Jim McLaughlin of McLaughlin & Associates, showing Josh Hawley now leading Claire McCaskill by a margin of 52% to 44%.This new data represents a significant shift from Missouri Rising Action’s last poll in June, which showed McCaskill leading Hawley 46%-42%.
Missouri Rising Action’s new poll, conducted from September 29th to October 2nd, shows McCaskill’s favorability upside-down – 42% favorable to 51% unfavorable, while Hawley is right-side-up – 41% to 33%.
Republicans have rallied around Hawley, supporting the Attorney General 95% to 3% (was 84% to 8% in previous poll), while Democrats back McCaskill 89% to 8% (down from June when it was 94% to 3%). A key difference is among Independents, among whom Hawley is leading 51% to 39%. In June, Hawley was winning Independents by a narrow margin, 39% to 38%. Republicans now lead on the generic ballot by a 52% to 41% margin.
“These fresh numbers indicate that Josh Hawley is gaining momentum at exactly the right time as Missouri voters tune into this important race,” said Brian Rogers, Executive Director of Missouri Rising Action. “The Democrats’ hysterical attacks on Judge Kavanaugh have hurt Democrats like Claire McCaskill whose states voted decisively for President Trump in 2016.
This will be a tight race, but Missourians are now more ready than ever to replace Claire McCaskill with a senator who will represent their values and interests in Washington – Josh Hawley.”
Missouri Rising Action also today announces a new $1 million grassroots initiative is focused on turning out voters to help Josh Hawley beat Claire McCaskill this November. The initiative will launch next week, and run through the final hours of voting on November 6th.
Missouri Rising Action has partnered with leading data analytics firm WPAi to model the Missouri electorate and focus this seven-figure campaign on turning key voter segments on Election Day. This will be a close race, and WPAi has identified the exact voters that Missouri Rising Action needs to contact and persuade to help finally retire McCaskill.
Based on WPAi’s data, Missouri Rising Action will be using customized messages to target these specific voters through digital advertising, direct mail, and turnout texting and phone calls to ensure they come out on Election Day.

Senator McCaskill is a politician who serves the state of Missouri. She was first elected in 2006 and was the second female Senator from Missouri to serve. However, she was the first Senator to be elected in her own right.
In her previous career, she was the 34th State Auditor of Missouri between the years of 1999 to 2007. Additionally, she served as Jackson County Prosecutor between 1993 and 1998. She also worked in the Missouri House of Representatives between 1983 and 1989. Her elections in the past have been very close and in some cases swing.
McCaskill has had a lot of controversy in her career. In the past, she was found to have used taxpayer dollars to use her and her husband’s private airplanes. The Missouri Republican Party filed an ethics complaint with the state as a result.
She indicated in the past she had never had contact with Russian ambassadors, but previous tweets on social media indicated otherwise. She tried backtracking on the nature of the meeting, but regardless she met with them when she said otherwise.

Pelosi: ‘I Didn’t Know What Ilhan Omar Said When I Defended Her 9/11 Remarks’
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) did a major backpedal today when she admitted she didn’t know the content of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) recent remarks about 9/11. That didn’t stop her from defending Omar to the hilt in the wake of criticism from President Donald Trump. Pelosi gave an interview to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour where she rejected charges of anti-Semitism against Omar and pushed back against criticism that the Democrat Party isn’t doing enough to combat it.
“I don’t think the congresswoman is anti-Semitic. I wouldn’t even put those in the same category,” Pelosi told Amanpour in Ireland. “We have no taint of that [anti-Semitism],” she added. “And just because they want to accuse somebody of that doesn’t mean that we take that bait.” No one is making accusations… it’s all out in the open for everyone to see. This woman is delusional.
Then Pelosi went on to dismiss criticisms that she hasn’t done enough to defend Omar, conceding, “Until I talk to somebody, I don’t even know what was said.” Really? You didn’t take the time to even find out? “I do know that what the president did was not right,” she added. But not Omar. Trump did nothing wrong. In fact, he did the right thing in saying we should never forget 9/11 while Omar insulted all Americans by her “some people did something” slur.
“Omar is facing blowback for downplaying the September 11, 2001, terror attack, describing it last month private fundraiser for Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) as a day on which “some people did something,” before adding “and that all of us were starting to lose our civil liberties.”
“In reaction to the Minnesota Democrat’s remarks, President Trump shared a video to social media of Omar’s remarks and scenes of the World Trade Center engulfed in flakes shortly after it was attacked by radical Islamic terrorists. The video’s caption reads: “WE WILL NEVER FORGET!”
“She’s got a way about her that’s very, very bad, I think, for our country. I think she’s extremely unpatriotic and extremely disrespectful to our country,” the president said at an event in Minnesota on Monday.
“Several Democrats, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and 2020 Democrat candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, said President Trump was inciting violence against Omar by tweeting the clip. In a statement Saturday, Pelosi demanded the president remove the video and said Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Omar amid a growing number of death threats.
“Following the President’s tweet, I spoke with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family, and her staff. They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces,” Pelosi said.
“The President’s words weigh a ton, and his hateful and inflammatory rhetoric creates real danger. President Trump must take down his disrespectful and dangerous video,” she added.”

This knee-jerk defense of someone simply because they are in your political party is hypocritical and just wrong. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi scolded Trump for using the “painful images of 9/11 for a political attack” against the first-term Minnesota Democrat. So, pretend it did not happen when a leftist such as Omar intimates there were no terrorists involved and just brushes off nearly 3,000 deaths? I don’t think so.
From Fox News:
“Many Republicans and conservative outlets expressed outrage at Omar’s remarks. Fellow Democrats, including some who have disagreed with Omar in the past, defended her.
“First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something,'” tweeted Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas. The retired Navy SEAL lost his right eye in 2012 in an explosion in Afghanistan.
“Here’s your something,” the New York Post blared on its cover beneath a photograph of the flaming towers.”
“Several of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates condemned Trump’s tweet.
“Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, said the Republican president’s tweet was an “incitement to violence” against Omar, who is Muslim-American, and others like her. O’Rourke, campaigning in South Carolina, likened the tweet to Trump’s rhetoric about Mexicans, described in the past by Trump as murderers and rapists. O’Rourke said “there is a cost and there is a consequence” to Trump’s comments.
“Warren, a Massachusetts senator, said Republican leaders in Congress “cannot take a pass on this, cannot look the other way and pretend it isn’t happening. It is happening. And those who don’t speak out in the Republican leadership are complicit in what he is doing. It’s wrong.”
“Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar noted that a New York man recently was charged with threatening Omar’s life.
“The video the president chose to send out today will only incite more hate,” Klobuchar said. “You can disagree with her words — as I have done before — but this video is wrong. Enough.”
“Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont said Omar “won’t back down to Trump’s racism and hate, and neither will we.”‘
What a bunch of anti-American schmucks. As for Pelosi, I think she knew exactly what Omar said and what she meant. She’s trying to straddle a fence here and is going to wind up impaled on it. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving feckless Marxist.

In First Year Bernie Made Over $1 Million He Donated Less Than 1% To Charity
Vermont Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders had the utter gall to go on Fox News to show off that he had released ten years of tax returns and to demand that President Trump do the same. Bolshevik Bernie is one socialist who has become a millionaire thanks to American capitalism but he doesn’t want the masses to prosper the way he did. His answer to all of this is a so-called 52 percent ‘wealth tax’.
As for charity, Sanders is lousy at it as most Democrats and leftists are. Sanders earned an average of $280,975 per year from 2009 through 2015. His income skyrocketed to $1,062,626 in 2016 due to sales of his best-selling book, “Our Revolution.” Ironic, no? He gave just $10,600 in charitable contributions in 2016, making up slightly less than one percent of his reported income and falling under the $21,365 average charitable contribution for Americans who earned $250,000 or more that year, according to the latest available IRS data.
The self-avowed Democratic-socialist purchased his third home in 2016. It is a $575,000 lake-front property in Vermont, according to Fox News. He’s also got a penchant for racy cars. Bernie’s an ‘elite’ socialist don’t ya know. During his 2016 presidential campaign and beyond, Sanders declared that wealth inequality was “the great moral issue of our time.” What a hypocrite.
The following year, Sanders donated $36,300 of his adjusted gross income of $1,131,925 to charity. That’s still a pittance. Behold the benefits of being a Democratic Socialist with no morals or ethics.
The filings showed that Sanders has been among the top 1 percent of earners in the U.S. According to the liberal-leaning Economic Policy Institute. Families in the U.S. earning $421,926 or more a year are part of this group.
From The Daily Caller:
“From 2009 through 2015, when Sanders was earning on average $280,975 per year, he contributed 2.06 percent to charity.
“His charitable giving rose slightly to 2.39 percent of his income from 2016 through 2018, when his average income soared to $918,615 per year.
“My wife and I do give money to charity, and we’re proud to do what we did,” Sanders said at a Fox News town hall Monday.
“A campaign spokesperson for Sanders said in a statement to the Daily Beast that while the senator believes voluntary charitable donations are commendable, they can’t make up government investment in social programs, which his platform calls for.
“Over the last decade, Bernie and Jane Sanders have donated more than $100,000 to charity. Their overall charitable giving rates have been roughly in line with the average rates in America as a whole,” Sanders’s campaign spokeswoman Arianna Jones said.
“In some years, they gave more than 3 or 4 percent of their income to charity. They have given to senior centers, low-income organizations, educational entities, and environmental and housing advocacy groups. They also believe that while voluntary charitable donations are commendable, they can never replace ongoing public investments in major social programs and services that improve people’s lives.”’
Sanders really meant what he said in 1981 when he told attendees at a local United Way fundraiser in Vermont, “I don’t believe in charities.” Sanders, then serving as mayor of Burlington, “went on to question the ‘fundamental concepts on which charities are based’ and contended that government, rather than charity organizations, should take over responsibility for social programs,” according to the New York Times.
Leftists like Sanders knocked Trump for charitable giving and he gave many times over what Sanders donated. Socialism is inherently anti-charity. It’s anti-job and anti-freedom. Charity is a form of love for your fellow man. Not something socialists are known for.
