‘I don’t like it’s this close’: Republican strategist says ‘blame the candidate’ for tightening Mississippi Senate runoff

Published

on

The final contest of the 2018 midterms election will occur on Tuesday when voters in Mississippi go to the polls to vote in their U.S. Senate runoff election.

Despite the red nature of the conservative state, interim Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) has made a number of missteps during her campaign to win election to the seat she was given via a gubernatorial appointment.

Hyde-Smith made positive statements about a “public hanging” — despite Mississippi’s shameful history of lynchings. She then refused to answer questions about the scandal.

Hyde-Smith also accepted $2,700 from a notorious white supremacist and was caught wearing a Confederate hat — in the former home of Jefferson Davis.

On Tuesday, Hyde-Smith faced off against her Democratic Party opponent, former cabinet secretary Mike Espy, the final debate.

During the debate, Hyde-Smith lashed out at critics of her controversial “public hanging” remarks.

Hyed-Smith also had to read an apology that was viewed as insincere.

And she urged her supporters to get out the vote, not on election day, but on Thanksgiving Day.

Republican strategist Noelle Nikpour worried about the state of the race during a Wednesday appearance on MSNBC’s “Hardball.”

“I think what Republicans probably don’t like to see is the fact it’s this close,” she noted. “But I think if you want to blame anyone, you can blame the candidate — and what you said earlier about stepping in it — this is very careless and reckless statement she said.

Though Nikpour predicted that despite her missteps, “it’s going to go Republican.”

“I just don’t like the fact it’s this close,” Nikpour concluded.

Trump goes off on ‘socialist, communist’ rant saying Democrats are ‘pro Al-Qaeda’

Published

on

President Donald Trump took his racist comments even further Monday afternoon, saying that Democrats are now pro-terrorism.

"We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE!" Trump ranted. "It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country. They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, “some people did something.” Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more. Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps! America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!"

‘Bond is dead’: White dudes flip out over casting of a black woman as next Agent 007

Published

on

On Monday, the Daily Beast reported that the new 007 -- the special agent in the James Bond series -- will be portrayed by the black actress Lashana Lynch.

The announcement set off predictably racist and sexist reactions.

Perhaps the most prominent right-winger to voice his displeasure was Ben Shapiro, who complained that it didn't make sense for Bond to be a woman because of the character's signature seduction moves.

"Bond is about the guns and the girls," Shapiro said, noting that a woman in a seductive role was not realistic.

REVEALED: The government just ‘dramatically’ expanded its investigation of Jeffrey Epstein

Published

on

Federal investigators have been able to “dramatically expand” their investigation into financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein as prosecutors bring sex trafficking charges against him, Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller said in court on Monday.

The government revealed the expansion of the case at the day’s bail hearing. In searching the defendant’s house, investigators found an old passport with Epstein picture and a fake name that listed Saudi Arabia as the location of his residence, the prosecutor said.

The judge was surprised at this revelation, NBC News reported, asking the attorney, “Say again?”
