Support For Trump in Massachusetts Causes 20,000 PEOPLE TO QUIT DEMOCRAT PARTY

trump

Donald Trump is strongly favored to win the Republican primary vote in Massachusetts and lots of former Democrats are going to help him do it. This is bad news for the Democratic Party.

The Boston Herald reported:

Amid Trump surge, nearly 20,000 Mass. voters quit Democratic party

Nearly 20,000 Bay State Democrats have fled the party this winter, with thousands doing so to join the Republican ranks, according to the state’s top elections official.

Secretary of State William Galvin said more than 16,300 Democrats have shed their party affiliation and become independent voters since Jan. 1, while nearly 3,500 more shifted to the MassGOP ahead of tomorrow’s “Super Tuesday” presidential primary.

Galvin called both “significant” changes that dwarf similar shifts ahead of other primary votes, including in 2000, when some Democrats flocked from the party in order to cast a vote for Sen. John McCain in the GOP primary.

The primary reason? Galvin said his “guess” is simple: “The Trump phenomenon,” a reference to GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, who polls show enjoying a massive lead over rivals Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and others among Massachusetts Republican voters.

“The tenor of the Republican campaign has been completely different from what we’ve seen in prior Republican presidential campaigns,” Galvin said. “You have to look no farther than the viewership for some of the televised debates.

“The New York Times referred to the campaign as crude; I suppose that’s fair,” added Galvin, a Democrat. “The fact of the matter is the tenor has been very different this time. And that has an effect. People are interested. It’s exciting.”

This is why Trump is leading.

He could actually turn Massachusetts red in November.

Democrats Worried Donald Trump Could Win in LIBERAL MASSACHUSETTS

Donald Trump WB

Democrats have been trying to laugh off Donald Trump but they’re very concerned that Donald Trump could win next week in the blue state of Massachusetts where he currently holds a massive lead in the Republican field.

Politico reports:

Trump’s victory lab

Massachusetts is a blue state, but it’s full of the voters Trump would need to notch a White House win.

Donald Trump is poised to romp across the South on Super Tuesday, cementing a hold on the Republican presidential nomination. But it’s little-watched and deeply liberal Massachusetts that’s sending shivers down Democrats’ spines.

Massachusetts, they fear, is where Trump could chart a course to the White House.

The state — the largest non-Southern prize on the GOP calendar next week — is packed with the independent, blue-collar voters that will decide key general election states like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan. And if Trump can trounce his Republicans rivals by pulling in those voters in Massachusetts on Tuesday, Democrats are afraid he could do the same to them nationwide in November.

“It’d be like the canary in the coal mine,” said Doug Rubin, a Democratic strategist who helped steer Deval Patrick and Elizabeth Warren to statewide victories in Massachusetts. “If Trump is able to convince a lot of moderate-to-conservative independents to vote in the primary and he does really well here, that would be a warning sign for Democrats going forward.”

Massachusetts is a bastion of Democratic power — and a virtual lock to go to the Democratic nominee in the general election — but it also has a deeply moderate streak that has enabled Republicans like Mitt Romney and Scott Brown to prevail in statewide contests. Their coalitions depended on wresting support from independent voters and the pockets of Reagan Democrats in industrial cities like Lowell, Quincy and Fall River. Rubin said sharply increased turnout in those cities, coupled with a blowout victory for Trump, would be a worrisome sign for Democrats.

What will Democrats do if Trump proves popular in such a liberal state?

Expect panic from the left.

Valerie Jarrett Retweets Comment Mocking Obama – Thinks It’s A Compliment

Recently, Obama’s top advisor Valerie Jarrett encouraged people to share their memories of the day Obama announced he was running for president.

…share your story about where you were when the President announced his candidacy and how it touched you using #WhereWereYou.

Columnist Fran Eaton brilliantly tweeted out the following jab about Obama’s arrogance which Jarrett misread as a compliment, and retweeted!

We’re thinking the president’s senior advisor misunderstood when she retweeted the #WhereWereYou memory. What do you think?

Nice brain trust you have there Mr. President.

Eric Greitens Under Fire – May Be Paying Campaign Staff Illegally

Missouri Gubernatorial candidate Eric Greitens is under fire yet again for campaign finance issues.

As previously reported by Progressives Today the Greitens campaign has been receiving large donations from prominent leftists and has refused to return a massive donation from billionaire hedge fund manager Steve Cohen who was recently banned by the SEC.

Now This:

Documents filed late last week with the Missouri Ethics Commission claim Eric Greitens’ campaign is paying two staff members illegally.

The documents obtained EXCLUSIVELY by Progressives Today allege that the Greitens campaign has failed to report that staff members Barth Fraker and Robbie Brouk are being paid through The Greitens Group LLC for work being done on behalf The Greitens For Governor campaign.

The complaint reads:

GREITENS FOR GOVERNOR IS EMPLOYING AND PAYING TWO PEOPLE, BARTH FRAKER AND ROBBIE BROUK,
AND PAYING THEM THROUGH AN LLC, THE GREITENS GROUP. THIS IS IN VIOLATION OF RSMO SECTION 130,
SUBSECTIONS .011 (12) (B), WHICH STATES THAT IF A PERSON IS WORKING FOR A PRIVATE COMPANY,
BUT IS OFFERING THEIR WORK AND SERVICES FOR A CAMPAIGN, THAT CAMPAIGN HAS TO DISCLOSE HOW MUCH
THEY ARE PAYING HIM AND REPORT THAT AMOUNT AS AN IN-KIND CONTRIBUTION. THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING FOR GREITENS FOR MISSOURI SINCE AT LEAST JUNE 2015.

Greitens Ethics violation 1
Greitens complaint2

A troubling pattern seems to be forming around the Greitens campaign whose main platform is cleaning up Jefferson City through ethics reform.

We await the Missouri Ethics Commission’s investigation and the results.

Bill Maher Calls Out Liberals For Being More Tolerant of Islam Than Christianity (VIDEO)

bill maher

Progressive TV host Bill Maher recently pointed out that American liberals are more tolerant of Islam than they are of Christianity and that it’s hypocritical and stupid of them to do so.

You know that old saying about a broken clock being right twice a day?

Here you go, via Real Clear Politics:

Bill Maher: I Wish Liberals Would Have Same Intolerance For Muslims That They Do For Christians

BILL MAHER: I mentioned this in the monologue, the covering up of the statues in Rome.

[photo of nude Roman antiquities being covered up in anticipating from an Iranian visit]

This is the horribleness of what’s going on in Rome. Oh my God, naked titties and tiny penises! This is what they did.

I think people are mixing up two things: tolerance and capitulation.

It’s one thing to be tolerant of another culture, but this is out culture, you know? Christianity had a problem with titties, in like 1300. We got over it. So we shouldn’t change our culture to a more backward culture, should we?…

THOM HARTMANN, LIBERAL RADIO TALK SHOW HOST: Ask John Ashcroft. This is not a Muslim problem, it is a fundamentalist problem. John Ashcroft is a fundamentalist Christian.

MAHER: You know what? Except when it happened in this country, the liberals laughed at him. And they opposed him. I wish they would have the same enthusiasm for intolerance elsewhere in the world as they do for Christians here at home who really aren’t a problem because they don’t really get their way. It’s laughable.

Here’s the video, strong language warning:

Maher makes an excellent point.

Christians aren’t burning people alive in cages for disagreeing with them.

Tim Allen: One Party is the Free Sh*t Party

Tim Allen

Actor and comedian Tim Allen recently gave an interview to the Hollywood Reporter to promote his new show Last Man Standing. In the course of the conversation, Allen revealed his disdain for progressive politics.

Take a look:

What riles you up the most?

Unearned responses, unearned praise, unearned income: I have opinions about it. When you watch the debates, on both sides you see clowns who say shit that ain’t ever going to happen, but lately one party is the free shit party. They are just telling people they’re going to get all sorts of free shit. When you say you’re going to get free education, free health care — f—, free brown loafers — of course everybody’s going to say yes to that. But you don’t mean it. That’s how you rack up debt, and debt is killing us. Whatever party is going to get us out of debt is my party.

Isn’t it refreshing to hear a conservative voice in the entertainment industry?

Arkansas Teen Says He Was Turned Down By The Marines Over CONFEDERATE FLAG TATTOO

Arkansas Teen

If someone wants to volunteer to help defend the country, should it really matter that they have a tattoo some people think is politically incorrect?

The Daily Mail reports:

Arkansas teen says he was turned away from Marines because of his Confederate flag tattoo

An Arkansas teen said he was turned away from joining the Marines when he revealed he had a Confederate flag tattoo.

Anthony Bauswell, 18, has the rebel flag inked on his rib, with the words ‘Southern Pride’ emblazoned underneath.

Bauswell was in the process of enlisting at the Marine Corps Recruiting Center in Conway on Monday when the recruiter said it made him ineligible.

‘He says DQ, just automatically, DQ,’ Bauswell told KARK 4.

While each branch of the military has its own specific rules, the prohibition of racist, extremist or gang-related tattoos is all-encompassing.

Bauswell said ’99 percent of the reason’ why he got ‘Southern Pride’ in addition to the flag was because he did not want the tattoo to be seen as racist.

‘I felt pretty low,’ he said. ‘My own government wasn’t going to let me serve my country because of the ink on my skin.’

Tattoos have long been restricted in the military, although recently the Marines have made effort to loosen the rules.

As of their policy in 2010, officers could only have four tattoos visible when wearing the shorts and t-shirt required for the physical training uniform, according to Time.

Enlisted Marines also could not have tattoos on their hands, fingers, wrists, inside their mouths, and no visible tattoo could be larger than a fist.

This just seems silly.

Dem Senator Says Trump And Sanders Have One Thing In Common

ts

While the Presidential race has most political pundits pointing out how their candidate is more conservative or progressive than the others, some are taking a different route. One politician in particular is pointing out some of the candidates’ similarities.

MSNBC reports that Missouri Democrat Clare McCaskill says while it’s not fair to do a direct comparison between the Socialist Democratic Presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, and Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, it is acceptable to point out they do share one thing in common: anger.

McCaskill said it would be “unfair” to compare Trump to Sanders, but said “they are both tapping in to anger, they are both tapping in to a huge number of people in this country that have lost faith that the constitutional government we were given, which requires compromise, is working.”

Senator McCaskill is correct in that both Trump and Sanders are tapping into the angry American demographic with their direct and harsh rhetoric.

But what she fails to realize is that while those on the Conservative right wish to preserve the constitutional government we were given, the Progressive left and right seek to destroy it and replace it with what those like Sanders refers to as a “more Democratic Society”. Or as President Obama put it, they wish to “fundamentally transform” the nation.

BOOM! Trump Says Hillary Clinton And Obama CREATED ISIS (VIDEO)

Donald Trump in Mississippi

Donald Trump is absolutely right about this. The inept foreign policy of Obama and Hillary Clinton caused the rise of ISIS.

Obama pulled troops out of the Middle East against the advice of top generals. Hillary Clinton followed up with a disastrous reign as secretary of state and left the region in flames.

Speaking to a massive crowd in Mississippi this weekend, Trump said:

One thing I see out there, just happened today… In Tehran they’re burning down the Saudi embassy, you see that.

Now, what that is is Iran wants to take over Saudi Arabia, they always have. They want the oil, OK? They’ve always wanted that….

They have a bunch of dishonest people. They’ve created ISIS.

Hillary Clinton created ISIS with Obama. Created with Obama.

Watch the video:

If we had an honest media, most Americans would already know that Obama and Hillary’s failed foreign policy is responsible for the rise of ISIS.

UKIP Leader Nigel Farage Victim Of Assassination Attempt

Nigel-FarageNigel Farage careens off road as the lug nuts on his car fall off, which police are saying was a deliberate act. Farage is the head of the UK Independence Party, which is a right of center party that advocates for the United Kingdom exiting the European Union, and promoting national sovereignty as well as more conservative fiscal policies.

From the Daily Mail:

The Ukip leader careered off a French road after a wheel on his Volvo came loose while he was driving from Brussels back to his home in Kent.

When the police arrived at the scene, they told him that the nuts on all of the wheels had been deliberately unscrewed, The Mail on Sunday has established.

‘It was the middle of bloody nowhere, and I was caught in a very bad position,’ he said. ‘There was a huge section of roadworks with cars going back and forth on the same side of the carriageway. I suddenly realised I was losing steering but there was no hard shoulder to pull on to. I slowed down, put the hazards on and then one of the wheels came off. I jumped over the wall as quickly as I bloody well could to get away from lorries and everything.’
When the emergency services arrived, they told a shaken Mr Farage that he had been the victim of a malicious act. ‘The French police looked at it and said that sometimes nuts on one wheel can come a bit loose – but not on all four,’ Mr Farage said.
When he was asked who he thought might have been responsible, Mr Farage replied: ‘I haven’t got a clue. Quite frankly, the way my life’s been over the past two-and-a-half years, nothing surprises me.’
