Sarah Palin inadvertently becomes co-chair of Hillary PAC after disastrous Iowa speech raises $25K

Published

on

Sarah Palin’s rambling, incoherent speech at Iowa’s Freedom Summit proved to be as profitable for a potential Hillary Clinton presidential run as it was detrimental to any future Palin political aspirations, with the former vice-presidential nominee inadvertently raising over $25,000 for a pro-Hillary PAC.

According to the Independent, the Ready for Hillary political action committee used a screen shot of Palin holding up a “I’m Ready for Hillary” car magnet during her speech in a tweet directing followers to the PAC website where they were encouraged to make a donation and get a car magnet of their own.

The Ready for Hillary PAC congratulated Palin, noting that the amount raised by promoting the PAC qualified Palin to become a co-chair of the Ready for Hillary National Finance Committee.

During her speech Palin mocked Clinton while holding up the magnet and saying  “I’m ready for Hillary, are you? Are you coming? Hey Iowa, can anyone stop Hillary? To borrow a phrase, ‘Yes we can!’ And it starts here and it starts now.”

In a press release, the group stated, “Sarah Palin inadvertently gave herself a new title — Co-Chair of Ready for Hillary’s National Finance Council! Yesterday, we sent an email to our supporters telling you how Sarah Palin held up a Ready for Hillary car magnet during a recent speech. The response we got was overwhelming — hundreds of supporters stepped up and Sarah ended up raising Ready for Hillary over $25,000 in grassroots donations.”

They added, “Here’s the kicker — by raising $25,000, Sarah officially qualifies as a Co-Chair of our National Finance Council.”

According to the PAC, they are waiting to hear from the former governor turned reality TV show host before adding her to their list of high roller fundraisers.

During the same speech, which has been derided by liberals and conservative alike, Palin’s Twitter account was sending out continuous tweets, directing followers to Palin’s own PAC, SarahPAC.

Lincoln Project slams NC TV station’s ‘overt cowardice’ for refusing to run ad criticizing Trump supporters’ ‘Flag of Treason’

Published

on

On Sunday, The Lincoln Project—a political action committee comprising anti-Trump Republicans backing Joe Biden—digitally released an ad called “The Flag of Treason,” which takes aim to President Trump’s not-so-casual embrace of racial divisiveness and his alliances with Confederate sympathizers.

It’s a provocative ad, for sure—and too provocative, it seems, for ABC11-WTVD.

DC’s football team blasted for tweet against racism: ‘They’re called the Washington PR Stunts now’

Published

In a startling moment of tone-deaf responses, the Washington Redskins took part in the #BlackOutTuesday posts, where many showed solidarity with the Black Lives Matter protesters marching to stop police brutality of people of color. Given the racist history of Redskins owner Dan Snyder and the protests over the team's name, some are calling it another example of failed PR stunts.

Published

on

On Tuesday, former Justice Department Inspector General Michael Bromwich urged the House of Representatives to begin impeachment proceedings into Attorney General William Barr, accusing him of an "egregious violation of his oath."

Bromwich's remark came in response to reports that Barr personally ordered authorities to forcibly clear peaceful protesters out of the area around the White House, using gas and rubber bullets, before President Donald Trump walked to the nearby church.

The House should immediately initiate proceedings in re The Impeachment of Attorney General William Barr. This is simply the most recent egregious violation of his oath to protect and defend the Constitution. https://t.co/cwsgoupSLp
