Democrats Win!… Sort of

In the most expensive House race in history, the Democrats are claiming victory, even though they only lost the election by 7 points.  This puts them at 0-5 in the 2017 special elections races.

Karen Handel Beats Oss-off Pelosi Democrat!!

Hollywood Fail: Jon Ossoff Loses Georgia Congressional Election Despite Massive Celebrity Help
Milano previously said she wanted “to puke” after Ossoff’ failure to reach the 50 percent threshold required to avoid Tuesday’s runoff.

On Tuesday, the Who’s the Boss star launched a social media campaign encouraging people to tweet photos of themselves after hitting the polls.

Actresses Sarah Silverman and Debra Messing attacked Ossoff’s opponent, Karen Handel, on social media in the run-up to Tuesday’s election.

Despite the belief of numerous political experts that Ossoff would fall short in the Republican-dominated district that helped send Trump to the White House, the president had earlier declared Tuesday’s election to be a matchup between “Hollywood vs. Georgia.”

THERE WERE TWO OTHER SPECIAL ELECTIONS; THE DEMS DIDN’T DO ANY BETTER

The Latest: Republican wins close victory in South Carolina


Republican Ralph Norman has won a victory that was closer than expected in a special election to fill the South Carolina congressional seat vacated by Mick Mulvaney.

The Republican won just more than 51 percent of votes cast Tuesday in the 5th District. That’s compared with about 48 percent for Democrat Archie Parnell.

CNN’s Chalian: No ‘Moral Victory Here’ for Dems in Georgia Defeat

Chalian talking about how the victory was huge for Republican even though it was a seat they have controlled for a number of years. “This was the best shot Democrats in these special elections to really try to make a victory in the Trump era,” he explained to Lemon. “And they came up short, which now, of course, is going to create a whole series of questions about how the Democratic Party should run in the era of Donald Trump because they came up short here.”

    Prof Who Made Belligerent Appearance On Tucker Carlson Tonight Suspended Indefinitely

    They did this to humiliate me,” Durden told The Star-Ledger. “Essex County College publicly lynched me in front of my students.”

    Durden went off on the show in defense of a black-only Memorial Day party organized by Black Lives Matter, dodging a direct question from Carlson on whether it’s okay to exclude people based on race.

    “What I say to that is boo hoo hoo you white people are angry because you couldn’t use your white privilege card to get invited to the Black Lives Matters, all black, Memorial Day celebration,” Durden replied, cutting off Carlson.

    “White folks crack me up all of a sudden, when we want one day for black folks to focus on ourselves but you’ve been having white days for ever, you don’t say the words anymore because you know its politically incorrect,” Durden shouted.

    Going on Fox News cost me my job, professor claims

    Durden, who wants to be reinstated, is fuming, believing her right to free speech has been trampled.

    Colleagues agree and have submitted letters expressing concern and outrage. They’ve started an online petition, with nearly 500 signatures, demanding she be reinstated.

    “I find it shocking that an African-American woman would be so disrespected at her place of employment for merely exercising her First Amendment right to free speech,” said Professor Jennifer Wager.

    • “I find it shocking that an African-American woman would be so disrespected at her place of employment for merely exercising her First Amendment right to free speech…”

      Such utter nonsense. Her ethnicity has nothing to do with anything; she did not lose her job just for exercising free speech; and nobody has “trampled” on her “exercise” of free speech: she’s still Constitutionally free to demonstrate what an embarrassment she is, and lose her next gig by “exercising” free screech.

      I encourage all of her ilk to keep right on flapping their foolish lips and losing. Especially Hillzebub!

    Democrats Post Worst Fundraising Numbers in Month of May Since 2003
    People are just tired of them, they have no message except hate Trump, Russia and everyone else is a bigot.

    The Democratic National Committee raised only $4.29 million in May, the organization’s worst fundraising performance in that month since 2003, according to data from the Federal Election Commission.
    This comes one month after the DNC posted its worst April in terms of fundraising since 2009, hauling in just $4.7 million.

    Clinton Labor Secretary Raising Money To Impeach Trump….

    ‘HEY,BUDDY…CAN YOU SPARE SOME CASH?I’M A LITTLE SHORT!’
    I’LL BE HERE ALL WEEK….TRY THE VEAL
    THE PRECEDING WAS MY ORIGINAL THOUGHT FOR JUNE
    “The path to winning in 2018 (and thereafter) begins with Democrats in Congress showing the American people that they have the courage and backbone necessary to take back our nation. It means calling for the impeachment of Trump and holding politically accountable every single person in his administration and in the House and Senate who have enabled his disgrace of a presidency,” he wrote.
    His money line: “I know that impeachment won’t happen quickly. It’s going to take a strategic, painstakingly executed campaign—hallmarks of MoveOn’s excellent organizing. Will you join me by making a donation of $5 a month to MoveOn to make this happen?”

    Florida Democratic Party Chair: ‘They’re Like Children, These Black Lawmakers’

    The tension started at a Saturday fundraiser for the Florida Democratic Party, the Miami Herald reports. Bittel Shortened the program by removing a segment in which state legislators would be recognized.

    Bittel referred to the anger from lawmakers over the snub as “childish.” Bittel also said State Sen. Oscar Braynon (D.), a black legislator who expressed lawmakers’ unhappiness to the chairman, was acting “like a three year old.”

    After the dinner, white State Sen. Lauren Book (D.) asked Bittel about the situation.

    “They’re like children, these black lawmakers. They just don’t get it,” Bittel said. “I raised more money in this amount of time than they ever could.”

    Eric Holder Wants To Be In The Spotlight And Might Run In 2020

    HOLDER’S CANDIDACY BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE COMMITTEE TO ELECT DONALD TRUMP

    Hilarious. Hillary and Uncle Joe will love that. That Fast and Furious problem and contempt of Congress should run well in ads…
    But that’s about to change. I have a certain status as the former attorney general. A certain familiarity as the first African-American attorney general,” Holder told Yahoo News. “There’s a justified perception that I’m close to President Obama. So I want to use whatever skills I have, whatever notoriety I have, to be effective in opposing things that are, at the end of the day, just bad for the country.”

    • Yes, the problem with Ossoff was that he was too “centrist.” That’s so true. Move further left, Democrats, keep on shifting to the fringe. Please. Until you’re so out there, so disrespected, that the Dem party is reduced to the level of the Greens. (It is still a little disturbing that the Dems still get so much of the vote. Well, Trump has just started. Heh.)

  10. Another fine report, Pete – thanks.

    I don’t recognize any of those “celebrities” in the pic up there. Which gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling.
