Mason Dixon-Telemundo 51 Poll: Democrat Shalala Trailing GOP Opponent Maria Elvira Salazar in a district Trump Lost Badly
As reported at the Miami Herald, Democrat Donna Shalala is training her opponent, Republican TV journalist Maria Elvira Salazar, by 2 percentage points in a recent Mason Dixon-Telemundo 51 poll. This is a district where President Trump lost by almost 20 percentage points in 2016. It would appear much has changed. This is another indication that maybe this blue wave that has been espoused by Democrats and their propaganda media cohorts, does not exist.
Maria Elvira Salazar
Donna Shalala may be in trouble.
Shalala, a Democrat running in a district that President Donald Trump lost by nearly 20 percentage points in 2016, is trailing Republican TV journalist Maria Elvira Salazar by 2 percentage points in a Mason Dixon-Telemundo 51 poll. The independent poll’s margin of error was 4 percentage points and included a pro-Trump non-party candidate who could siphon votes from Salazar.
Salazar’s unique background as a journalist in a party dominated by President Donald Trump and her appeal with older, Spanish-speaking voters has enabled the GOP to remain competitive. Shalala, one of the most experienced first-time congressional candidates, won a competitive Democratic primary by less than 5 percentage points and has faced criticism from liberal Democrats and Republicans alike for her tenure leading the University of Miami, when campus janitors went on a hunger strike over low wages and the school acquired Cedars Medical Center.
The poll of 625 registered likely voters was conducted from Oct. 1 to Oct. 6, before Shalala began airing a TV ad that attempts to tie Salazar to Trump. Forty-three percent of respondents approve of Trump while 46 percent disapprove, according to the poll, while Salazar has a net favorable rating of 22 percentage points and Shalala has a net favorability rating of 4 points, though more voters recognize her than Salazar. Forty-two percent of voters support Shalala while 44 percent support Salazar, with 13 percent undecided.
Ohio District 12 Special Election: Republican Troy Balderson Defeats Democrat Danny O’Connor 50.2% to 49.3%
Even with low GOP voter turnout, GOP candidate wins OHIO 12 Special Election … OHIO 12 Remains Republican!!!
It’s official, Republican Troy Balderson defeats Democrat Danny O’Connor 101,574 to 99,820. It was billed as a precursor to the 2018 Democrat blue wave. Oops, the Democrats lost. Of course no matter who won, the liberal MSM would call this a GOP loss whether Balderson won or lost. However, as stated at the Gateway Pundit, Republicans are going to have to do a much better job in November for the 2018 midterms as Balderson had 101,574 votes compared to Tiberi’s 251,266 votes in 2016 is only about 40% of the 2016 turnout.
Look for this same match up in the 2018 midterms. Republicans are going to have to do a much better job in showing up to vote in November.
Former Democrat Sen. Joe Lieberman Endorses Rep. Joe Crowley … Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hurts the party, Congress and even America
Joe Lieberman Calls for Rep. Joe Crowley to run as Independent against Ocasio-Cortez in November …
As reported at Mediaite, former Democrat Sen. Joe Lieberman has penned an OPED calling for voters in New York to vote for Joe Crowley Over Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The issue, Ocasio-Cortez defeated Crowley recently in the Democrat primary. However, even though she has been prematurely anointed the face of the Democrat party, her recent gaffs have been monumental. The 28 year old political novice has shown in a recent Firing Line interview that she is not ready for prime time, nor has a grasp of knowledge of the issues. She even struggled with economic issues when she supposedly graduated with an economics degree. Mayne it was economics for socialists. That being said, many center and establishment Democrats are worried that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not the face of the party, but the wedge that will divide it. Lieberman Endorses Rep. Joe Crowley and called for voters to send him back to DC. Lieberman states that a Ocasio-Cortez’s victory “seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez‘s victory over top Democrat Joe Crowley was stunning and the candidate herself has been embraced as symbolic of a new generation of Democratic leaders.
She has received criticism in recent days over her Firing Line interview, but she’s now getting what can only be called a massive publicity gift: a former Democrat-turned-Independent who spoke at the 2008 Republican National Convention calling on voters to reject her candidacy.
Lieberman has an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal arguing at the top Ocasio-Cortez’s victory “seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party.”
And that’s why Lieberman is now calling on voters to vote for Crowley on the Working Families Party ticket (Lieberman himself famously lost his 2006 Senate primary but won as a third party candidate). This, of course, is dependent on whether Crowley actually wants to do it, but Lieberman writes in detail why Ocasio-Cortez should not be elected to Congress:
It would appear that the Democrats are in the midst of their own Civil War, Progressives/Socialists vs. establishment Democrats.
HILLARY EMAILS GOING TO UNAUTHORIZED SERVER AND STRZOK COULD HAVE CARED LESS …
In a day that was filled with a lot of insanity, fireworks and ridiculousness, there were some bits and pieces that that should have made everyone stand up and notice. Rep. Gohmert (R-TX) made an astonishing revelation that FBI agent Strzok could have cared less about Hillary Clinton’s 30,000 emails going to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia. And just as Strzok did during the so-called investigation of Hillary’s emails, he did during the hearing, he could have cared less. But of course there was no bias.
Strzok: I remember meeting Mr. Rucker on either one or two occasions. I do not recall the specific content or discussions.
Gohmert: Mr. Rucker reported to those of you, the four of you there, in the presence of the ICIG attorney, that they had found this anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list. It was a compartmentalized bit of information that was sending it to an unauthorized source. Do you recall that?
Strozk: Sir, I don’t.
Gohmert: He went on the explain it. And you didn’t say anything, you thanked him, you shook his hand. The problem is it was going to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia and from what you’ve said here, you did nothing more than nod and shake the man’s hand when you didn’t seem to be all that concerned about our national integrity of our election when it was involving Hillary Clinton. So the forensic examination was done by the ICIG — and they can document that — but you were given that information and you did nothing with it. And one of the things I found most egregious with Mr. Horowitz’s testimony, and — by the way Mr. Horowitz got a call four times from someone wanting to brief him about this, and he never returned the call.
The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found an “anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list,” Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas said during a hearing with FBI official Peter Strzok.
“It was going to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia,” he added.
Gohmert said the ICIG investigator, Frank Rucker, presented the findings to Strzok, but that the FBI official did not do anything with the information.
Strzok acknowledged meeting with Rucker, but said he did not recall the “specific content.”
“The forensic examination was done by the ICIG and they can document that,” Gohmert said, “but you were given that information and you did nothing with it.”
He also said that someone alerted the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz to the issue.
“Mr. Horowitz got a call four times from someone wanting to brief him about this, and he never returned the call,” Gohmert said.
The ICIG spotted the oversight after the FBI missed it, texts between Strzok and his mistress, former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, show.
“Holy cow,” Strzok wrote, “if the FBI missed this, what else was missed? … Remind me to tell you to flag for Andy [redacted] emails we (actually ICIG) found that have portion marks (C) on a couple of paras. DoJ was Very Concerned about this.”
In late 2017, ICIG Chuck McCullough — who was appointed by former President Barack Obama — took the unusual step of coming forward publicly to say that he perceived pushback after he began raising the alarm about issues with Clinton’s servers to then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
WHAT DOES SHE HAVE TO HIDE, BESIDES A LOT!!!
FBI attorney Lisa Page will not comply with a Congressional subpoena and appear before a closed door Judicial hearing today. It appears that the former FBI love-bird has not had enough time to prepare. REALLY, not enough time? Defy a Congressional subpoena? So just what does Page have to hide from Congress and We the People? Lisa Page and FBI agent Peter Strzok were caught making some rather outlandish and bias texts against Donald Trump. They were so free and willing to text each other when they thought no one was watching, so then why doesn’t she want to explain herself? Strzok, her former boyfriend, is slated to appear in a public hearing on Thursday. The corruption, bias and conspiracy that took place at the highest levels of the FBI and DOJ is breath-taking.
These lovebird should soon be jailbirds. Let alone the conspiracy to affect an election these two took part in, they should be jailed for the amount of time they sent each other tens of thousands of texts to each other of a personal nature while they were on the job and being paid with tax payer money.
Page’s lawyer said in a statement obtained by Politico that she will not comply with a congressional subpoena to testify before the House Judiciary and the Oversight and Government Reform Committees.
“Instead of responding to our requests to explain the scope of the interview and provide sufficient notice to allow her to prepare, the Committees chose to issue a subpoena,” Page’s attorney wrote.
“The Committees would be asking Lisa about materials she has not yet been shown,” the lawyer continued. “As a result, Lisa is not going to appear for an interview at this time.”
The response from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte:
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) blasted Page’s announcement in a statement Tuesday night, accusing the former FBI lawyer of having “something to hide.”
“She has known for months that the House Judiciary Committee has sought her testimony as part of our joint investigation with the Oversight Committee into decisions made by the Justice Department in 2016, and she has no excuse for her failure to appear,” Goodlatte wrote.
“We will use all tools at our disposal to obtain her testimony. Americans across the country are alarmed at the bias exhibited by top officials at the Justice Department and FBI, and it is imperative Congress conduct vigorous oversight to ensure that never happens again.”
