Published

Republicans have new enthusiasm going into the November midterms, with donors like Sheldon Adelson pouring lots of money into the races.

Massachusetts Democrat Senator Ed Markey went on MSNBC Thursday night where he was asked by host Chris Hayes whether Republicans planned to consolidate power if they win.

Markey said there was “no question” they were.

“Everything is on the table in this election,” he said. “Which is why they’re going back to their biggest donors and asking them to pour tens of millions of dollars more into these races. They’re afraid they’re going to lose, and if they lose, they lose everything.”

Right now, Republicans do whatever they want as a unified government under President Donald Trump. Their only fear is angering voters before this election, he said.

“If they win the president can fire Robert Mueller, Jeff Sessions and Ron Rosenstien and just sweep the entire Russia scandal under the rug,” he said. “Everything is on the table for them.”

Putin aims a weaponized barb at Trump over Saudi attack – and hits the mark

Published

on

Russian President Vladimir Putin joked this week about selling defense systems to Riyadh following weekend attacks on Saudi oil facilities. The gag was aimed at US President Donald Trump and it hit the mark with the precision of a guided weapon.

It was a masterful piece of trolling by the czar of trolls – a snide, disparaging jibe with an element of truth twisted into absurdity for maximum effect and laughs. At a joint press conference with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts in Ankara on Monday, Putin cast his bait into the volatile Persian Gulf region just days after devastating attacks on Saudi oil facilities exposed the limits of the Gulf kingdom’s expensive defense systems.

Rick Wilson obliterates Dems for letting Lewandowski get away with stonewalling: ‘So bad it makes me cringe’

Published

on

Anti-Trump Republican strategist Rick Wilson dropped the hammer on House Democrats Tuesday for letting Trump minion Corey Lewandowski make a mockery of their oversight powers.

After witnessing a House Judiciary Committee hearing that quickly devolved into a circus with Lewandowski stonewalling and evading questions, Wilson unloaded on Democrats for failing in their basic responsibilities in governmental oversight.

"This is outrageous contempt," Wilson wrote. "It isn't just that this scumbag Lewandowski is slapping the committee with it. This is a test, and the Democrats are going to fail it. They're so bad at this it makes me cringe."
