Bryce Reeves, a candidate for lieutenant governor in Virginia, has put out a new ad in which he warns darkly about Islamic State fighters invading suburban Virginia and burglarizing people’s houses.
Although ISIS doesn’t typically involve itself with burglaries in affluent suburbs, the ad nonetheless depicts two masked terrorists fleeing from a woman’s home in broad daylight carrying bags full of stolen goods. The woman who lives in the house looks on hopelessly with her two children as the two fighters flee the scene in their escape vehicle.
“This is the America Obama left behind,” Reeves says in a voice over. “Terrorists living here, FBI investigating ISIS nationwide, frightening families.”
The ad then cuts to Reeves himself, who informs viewers that he will fight both terrorists and sanctuary cities as lieutenant governor. He also touts his own background as a former law enforcement officer who will look out for cops’ best interests.
Watch the full ad below.
Democrats are falling into the same trap they did in 2004: Nicolle Wallace
MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace worried that Democrats are repeating the mistakes made in 2004 that resulted in Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) losing the presidential election.
Wallace asked her panel why Democrats weren't fighting back harder against Trump's racism.
"Because none of them have the gumption, the backbone and the moral clarity to make these arguments," Dr. Jason Johnson said. "This disgusts me."
"That’s what people worry about with Donald Trump being able to be re-elected because he has conviction. Even if the conviction is wrong,' he explained.
"They’re thinking strategically instead of morally. That's the problem, this is not a strategic issue. It’s a moral issue. I don’t think the Democrats get it," he worried.
Things are not looking good for Republican Senator Susan Collins’ reelection
Things are not looking good for Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), who is up for reelection in 2020.
Collins has made a series of votes that are far more conservative than the people in her home state. Collins is one of very few Republicans willing to say that she is pro-choice. Planned Parenthood eve awarded her with an ally award.
When she met with Judge Brett Kavanaugh, however, she said that he believed Roe v. Wade was the law of the land, making her believe that he would never act to undermine it. Then Kavanaugh ruled to allow such strict abortion laws in Louisiana that it would leave just one clinic left for the entire state.
