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.

WATCH: PragerU Asks New Yorkers if They Have Republican Friends

Will Whitt from PragerU  asked people in NYC’s Washington Square Park if they know or have any Republican friends and the answers are hilarious.

One woman responded, “NO! Thank God.”

Another said, “I wouldn’t be friends with anyone who is a Republican.” When asked why, she responded, “I don’t like that kind of extremism.”

A third woman added that you won’t find many Republicans in New York City because it’s a liberal city and you have to be open-minded to live there. She also said that because it’s such a diverse city, people can’t be bigoted or racist and live there.

One guy said he’s “literally never even met Republicans.”

Watch the rest of the responses below.

Gotta love tolerant liberals!

 

 

Todd Rokita likely violated ethics laws; locked out of GOP database

Sitting Congressman and U.S. Senate candidate Todd Rokita is likely to have violated ethics laws.  According to the Associated Press, this occurred in 2009 when Rokita was then Indiana’s secretary of state.

What exactly did he do? Well, apparently, he repeatedly accessed a GOP database of donors in his office, on government time. Essentially, he was performing campaign functions on the tax-payer’s dime. That’s a big no, no in Indiana.

Apparently, it happened so frequently that Rokita was even locked out from the database by members of the Indiana Republican Party.

As expected, the Rokita campaign flat out denied the allegations with a campaign spokesperson saying:

“This is a baseless and unsubstantiated hit job. There has been no evidence of wrongdoing provided beside the word of anonymous sources with ties to political opponents.”

This comes after it was discovered that Rokita has spent millions of taxpayer dollars during election years on mailers and radio ads.

This new revelation comes from the same campaign that hasn’t come up with an original idea the entire campaign. He’s just been repeating “pro-Trump” whenever pressed for any kind of an idea.

Instead, the campaign has opted to repeatedly attack Luke Messer as a “never Trumper” and referred to Mike Braun as a Democrat, saying he voted for “Hillary or Obama.” 

But, hey defeat the elite, or something, as sitting Congressman Todd Rokita and his campaign like to say.

‘Pro-Trump’ Rokita called then-candidate Trump ‘vulgar, profane’ in 2016

Throughout the Indiana Republican race for U.S. Senate, there has been one overriding, dominant issue: Donald Trump.

All three candidates have gone out of their way saying how “pro-Trump” they are; stating it in interviews, in their lone debate up until this point, on TV and radio ads. Basically, wherever Mike Braun, Luke Messer or Todd Rokita appears, you can bet that the phrase “pro-Trump” will be coming out of their mouth early and often.

However, the one candidate who has essentially made cozying up to President Trump the focal point of his campaign has been Congressman Todd Rokita. He’s gone so far as prominently wearing a MAGA hat in two campaign ads, including his most recent one.

In the most recent ad, Rokita accuses Congressman Luke Messer of “plotting with the Never Trumpers to steal the nomination from President Trump. Wow.”

Needless to say, Rokita wants you to believe he was all Trump from the very beginning, never wavering for a second on his support for then-candidate Trump. But that’s not the case at all. In fact, Rokita referred to Trump as “vulgar, if not profane.” Instead, he was all in on Marco Rubio because, according to Rokita, “he’s the standard bearer for the mainstream Republican Party.” In an interview with Fox 59 in February 2016, Rokita is referred to as “one of the first in the Indiana delegation to back Marco Rubio.”

But…but I thought Rokita was always and forever Mr. Trump’s right hand man? Why would he change? Why would he tell us one thing and the fact be another? Political expediency, maybe? Easiest way to get elected?

Here’s why Rokita is now all about President Trump: Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by nearly 20 percent in the Hoosier state.  And in a red state like Indiana, President Trump is still extremely popular. So why not, if you have no original ideas, use President Trump’s popularity to get elected?

This display of utter hypocrisy from Rokita is exactly why people don’t like politicians. Say one thing and do another. Accuse someone of something that you yourself did.

Maybe Rokita should wear two MAGA hats in his next ad to show how “pro-Trump” he really is!  Well, at least now….you know because it could help him get elected.
