If Sens. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) vote against a bill to reduce immigration, they will be going against the desires of their own voters.
And this is not simply a description of their constituents as a whole but, specifically, voters who have cast ballots for them in the past.
That conclusion comes courtesy of polling in Michigan and Ohio, conducted earlier this year by NumbersUSA, an organization that favors lower levels of immigration. The group this week will launch a long-term campaign to pressure Stabenow and Brown, along with other Democratic senators up for re-election next year, in states President Donald Trump carried in 2016.
PRES. RONALD REAGAN: And while our communication should always deal with current issues of importance, it must never stray far from our national commitment to the battle against discrimination and increase our knowledge of each other.
A few isolated groups in the backwater of American life still hold perverted notions of what America is all about. Recently in some places in the nation, there’s been a disturbing reoccurrence of bigotry and violence. If I may, from the platform of this organization, known for its tolerance, I would like to address a few remarks to those groups who still adhere to senseless racism and religious prejudice, to those individuals who persist in such hateful behavior.
Democrat Rep. Keith Ellison, the Democrat Party’s #2, just said that President Trump is worse than the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Un. Do other Democrats agree with this?
KEITH ELLISON: “North Korea is a serious thing. You have this guy making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there. Kim Jong Un, the world always thought he was not a responsible leader. Well, he is acting more responsibly than this guy is. And but I’m telling you is that once you start seeing missile launches, you’re going to see the time for cranking up the antiwar machine is right now. So, if you don’t want to get caught deer in the headlights, start calling for diplomacy in North Korea immediately.”
While most in the media continue to focus on a meeting that all parties involved say resulted in no damaging material against Hillary Clinton, there’s little attention being paid to the fact that Hillary’s supporters were able to successfully use a foreign intelligence agent to disseminate false information to the mainstream American press. The phony information allegedly came from inside the Kremlin and sought to damage then-candidate Donald Trump.
Newly-released British court documents show that Fusion GPS, an “oppo firm” funded by Hillary’s supporters, successfully managed to get a former spy to discuss the phony foreign intelligence with The New York Times, The Washington Post, Yahoo News, The New Yorker, Mother Jones and CNN.
“You’re awake by the way. You’re not having a terrible, terrible dream. Also, you’re not dead and you haven’t gone to hell. This is your life now. This is our election now. This is us. This is our country.” – Rachel Maddow’s reaction to Trump becoming President
When Barack Obama was elected, conservatives didn’t cry like the liberals you see in this HILARIOUS VIDEO. We didn’t need therapy. We didn’t start wailing that he was Hitler or demand safe spaces. Instead, we said, “That sucks. This guy is going to be terrible for the country.” By the way, we were right. He was. But still, we got up and we went to work. Then when the time came, we went to Tea Parties. We obeyed the law at those Tea Parties. We paid for our permits. We were polite to the police. We cleaned up behind ourselves. Then we organized and we took control of the House and the Senate along with the majority of state legislatures and governorships. That’s how it’s supposed to work.
The Michigan Republican Party under the leadership of Ronna Romney McDaniel has done what seemed the impossible by turning Michigan ‘red’ – from 1972 through 1988 the state voted exclusively Republican, before becoming part of the ‘blue wall’ that voted Democratic in six consecutive presidential elections from 1992 through 2012.
Donald Trump broke the “blue wall” by taking Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and now, Michigan! This is what Donald Trump’s electoral map looks like:
