Pompeo confirmed as secretary of state

President Donald Trump officially has a new secretary of state.  CIA Director Mike Pompeo was confirmed Thursday with a 57-42 vote in the Senate.

A number of Democrats even voted to confirm Pompeo, including Indiana’s own, Joe Donnelly. One could easily come to the conclusion that this was a vote to help him in his November reelection effort in red state Indiana, where Trump continues to be popular.

All Republicans voted to confirm except Arizona Senator John McCain, who abstained.

Pompeo replaces former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who Trump fired in March. Tillerson apparently learned of his dismissal on Twitter.

Likely, one of the first things Pompeo is likely to do in his new position, if he’s not already doing so, is to follow @RealDonaldTrump on Twitter and check it often.

Chance the Rapper has liberals upset now

Every election season, there are issues and topics that are bound to come up.  The state of the economy, Democrats accusing Republicans of threatening women’s healthcare (abortion on demand) and that conservatives are total and complete racists, who all wear white hoods in their free time.

Needless to say liberals love identity politics. Why wouldn’t they? It helps get them votes. Hillary Clinton’s entire campaign was based on the fact that she was a woman and that any female who didn’t vote for her was betraying their gender.

Don’t believe me? The “I’m with Her” candidate said it herself.

Another big voting bloc for the Democratic Party is African-Americans. It’s just generally assumed, at least for Democrats, that black people will and should be Democrats. Why, because, according to Democrats, Republicans and conservatives are evil, vile and are certainly racist people.

So, any time some breaks out of this mold, this thinking that women are supposed to vote and think one way or that African-Americans are supposed to vote a particular way, it upsets things a tad, to say the least.

Don’t believe me?  Take a look at all the nice things liberals are saying to Chance the Rapper about this tweet.

See, thinking outside the box is not generally welcomed by loving, accepting liberals. It just takes a simple tweet to set them off.

 

These Kanye West tweets have liberals going crazy

In case you weren’t aware, Kanye West has been causing a massive stir as of late on social media. And no, it’s not because he’s called himself a genius once again.

Instead, it’s the rapper’s frequent conservative tweets that have twitter users and liberals in general, losing their minds.

You see, this the kind of thing Yee has been tweeting lately, but the world was not prepared for what he was about to put on his Twitter timeline next, especially, once again, liberals.

Yes, your eyes do not deceive you. That is in fact a photo of Kanye wearing a MAGA hat and also Kanye’s MAGA hat signed by President Trump.

Here’s just a sampling of some the liberals that aren’t too thrilled with Kanye.

Triggered much?

As liberals tell us over and over again, diversity is something they cherish and hold to their hearts, likely causing it to skip a beat when they witness it. However, thought diversity apparently isn’t allowed in a liberals ideal world and if nothing else, West’s tweets have brought that fact to life.

What a crazy world we live in, right? I mean, remember this little incident about ten years ago?

Who would’ve thought this guy would be embraced by those on the right. Once again, what a crazy world we live in.

Joe Donnelly releases first campaign ad

Indiana’s May primary is two weeks from today. However, while Republicans Luke Messer, Mike Braun and Todd Rokita are locked in a contentious race, not all candidates will be sweating it out the next 14 days.

Democrat Joe Donnelly, who has no primary challenger, is one of those candidates who has nothing to worry about – at least now, anyway. Despite this fact, that doesn’t mean Donnelly can’t get a jump of the general election.  In fact, the Donnelly campaign has been sending out campaign emails, mainly those seeking money, like crazy.  Now, the campaign has decided to release their first campaign ad.

It’s an extremely positive, get to know you ad. In an attempt to bring up memories of Mitch Daniels, Donnelly rides along in an RV. He proceeds to talk about cutting regulation, helping service members and “being the second most bipartisan senator.” Oh, he also mentions that he doesn’t work for either political party, but instead for the voters.

Anyway, Donnelly is sure to be locked in a very tight, contentious race, but he starts things off on a positive note.

New Politico Poll Shows the Top 10 Senate Races for 2018

It’s a mid-term election year and several Senate seats are up for grabs. Politico released their latest Senate race rankings in order from most to least likely to flip in the November election.

The rankings:

1. Nevada
GOP Senator Dean Heller is running for reelection but so far his Democratic opponent has raised more money.

2. Indiana
Senator Joe Donnelly will likely lose his seat. Probably the ONLY reason he won last time is that he’s a fairly conservative Democrat and the Republican opponent in 2012 was a far right leaning Republican who didn’t appeal to moderates or independents. He also shot himself in the foot with his rape comments right before election day. Right now there are three Republicans running in the primary and Indiana GOP voters would be wise to pick a more moderate candidate that will fare well against Donnelly in the fall.

3. Missouri 
According to Politico, Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill has “nearly eight times as much cash on hand as her likely opponent, state Attorney General Josh Hawley, the GOP’s top Senate recruit this cycle.” Hawley is doing very well and (sadly) beating former Libertarian candidate Austin Petersen in the GOP primary polls.

4. Arizona
Senator Jeff Flake is retiring and pondering a Presidential bid in 2020. Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema might win among voters but could be a toss up if she faces GOP Rep. Martha McSally. Also running in the GOP primary,  Kelli Ward and former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who brings with him lots of controversy.

5. North Dakota
Senator Heitkamp is running for reelection but this one might be easy to flip. The National Republican Senatorial Committee released a poll earlier this month showing him with a small lead over the incumbent Democrat.

6. West Virgina
Democratic Senator Joe Manchin is running for reelection. From Politico: “While the ranking is the same, Manchin appears a bit safer than he was at the start of the year. Why? The emergence of Don Blankenship, the ex-con coal baron infamous for his role in the deaths of 29 miners at the Upper Big Branch Mine, as a force in the GOP primary.”

7. Florida
Never rule out anything when it comes to ultimate swing state Florida. Senator Bill Nelson is running for reelection but Gov. Rick Scott is expected to jump in the race and is very popular with the public at the moment. Anything could happen here.

8. Wisconsin
Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin running for reelection and seems to have the most cash. But Trump won here in 2016, so it will be interesting to see if those blue collar, Reagan Democrats flip again and vote against their own party.

9. Montana
Democratic Senator Jon Tester is running for reelection in a state that overwhelmingly voted for Trump. From Politico, “Tester is far from safe — he’s ultimately running for reelection in a state Trump won by 21 percentage points. But Democrats feel better about him than some of their other incumbents: He’s had more than a dozen pieces of legislation signed into law by the president, and Montanans have a strong and recent history of ticket-splitting.”

10. Ohio
Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown is running for reelection and has nearly 10 million in the bank. Politico doesn’t consider him safe and says it comes down to who fund-raises better on the GOP side and goes on to challenge him in the November election.

Hillary’s latest elitist, condescending comments shows she’s still not sure ‘what happened’

Hillary Clinton is not the President of the United States. She will never occupy the Oval Office, never be the Commander-in-Chief.  Never. Won’t happen.

But ever since her monumental, historic upset loss to Donald Trump, she has been a quest, a mission, if you will, in order to find the real reason why she lost. How could a woman who was First Lady of the United States, a U.S. Senator and Secretary of State lose to a billionaire businessman with a reality TV show and a penchant for saying whatever pops into his head? How could that happen?

Well, Hillary’s not sure, either. However,  in the time she doesn’t seem to have grasped the answer, yet. She’s blamed everything from her poorly run campaign, Bill and sexism. Whatever Hillary has to tell herself to get to sleep at night is her problem and frankly, her delusion.

And her latest condensing, snobby, elitist, smug comments in India proves the woman hasn’t got a clue.

The fact that anyone could think this way, let alone say it out loud is astounding. She literally blames “backwards” Middle America.

While Trump is in no way a perfect president. The more Hillary speaks, the more we should all be grateful she will never, ever be referred to as Madam President.

Indiana Senator Donnelly heads to Texas with Schumer

Two to three times a week Indiana Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly’s campaign sends out frantic emails about the state of his race.  Generally, these frenzied emails start off quoting some poll showing the race leaning Republican. Continue reading and you soon spot the real reason for the mass mailing, it’s an ask to donate, generously, to the incumbent Democrat’s campaign.

Sure, campaign’s ask for money all the time. They need lots and lots of your money in order to continue…working for you?

But, this past weekend the Indiana Senator, whose campaign openly admits  – several times a week- that the race is leaning Republican, wasn’t in Indiana. Well, was he in Washington D.C.? Nah. But where was he then?

Well, Donnelly was in Texas…raising money...with New York Senator Chuck Schumer.

If you’re wondering what connection Donnelly has to Texas, so are we. Must’ve been that Schumer said “money” and then Donnelly likely sent his RSVP in moments in later.

The optics of this are absolutely terrible. Donnelly likes to position himself as a blue dog, conservative Democrat, but palling around with the liberal Senator from New York, Chuck Schumer is not a good look.

Regardless, Donnelly knows his time in office is coming to a close.

Savor it, Senator!
