‘He hasn’t done squat for this district’: Nunes challenger gets abrupt boost from community after memo flap

Published

on

The backlash against House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) has continued to grow in the wake of the declassification of a controversial memo he crafted.

Back in the central California district that sent Nunes to Washington, Fresno County Deputy District Attorney Andrew Janz has seized upon the prevailing political winds in the Democrats’ quixotic bid to unseat the 8-term Republican in the 2018 midterms, Politico reported Saturday.

“We’re looking really good, thanks to him,” Janz said after the memo’s release. “I think we took in $100,000 between today and yesterday.”

“While he’s engaged in all those antics in Washington, people here are struggling,” Janz said. “I was with a group of farmers last week — Republicans — who told me they’re sick of it … They are worried about issues like water, and they can’t get a meeting with him.”

“He hasn’t done a town hall meeting here since 2010. … He hasn’t done squat for this district,” Janz continued.

Nunes was also blasted in a scathing editorial by the main newspaper in the 22nd district, the Fresno Bee.

The paper concluded that Nunes was “doing dirty work for House Republican leaders trying to protect President Donald Trump in the Russia investigation.”

“Nunes of Tulare is sheltered in a relatively safe Republican district, and may believe he will pay no political price for unfairly attacking law enforcement and protecting Trump,” the Fresno Bee wrote. “But his performance as chairman of the highly sensitive House Intelligence Committee has been nothing short of embarrassing.”

All of the energy lead to a packed house at the Janz for Congress campaign headquarters grand opening on Friday evening.

And he has continued to capitalize upon the Nunes backlash, releasing a powerful new online video:

Published

on

One of the significant issues Republicans lost on in 2018 was their nearly decade-long crusade to unmake the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

This week Trump will announce that he's running for president again, and he promises a surprise announcement while there. While it's unclear what he intends for the surprise, one thing he is talking about is a better healthcare law than the Democratic one.

According to The New York Times, Trump is "vowing to issue the plan within a month or two, reviving a campaign promise with broad consequences for next year’s contest."

Donald Trump whines: ‘My life has always been a fight’

Published

on

The full interview with President Donald Trump finally aired on ABC Sunday, revealing the shocking way that he views his life.

Trump lamented that he's had such a hard life, as the son of multi-millionaires who paid to get him out of trouble multiple times.

"You're a fighter. You, you, it feels like you're in a constant kind of churn--" host George Stephanopoulos began.

"Yeah, uh, my life has always been a fight," Trump said. "And I enjoy that I guess, I don't know if I enjoy it or not, I guess -- sometimes I have false fights like the Russian witch hunt. That's a false fight. That's a made-up, uh, hoax. And I had to fight that."

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."
