Democrats Raise Paltry $4.3 Million In Worst May Total Since 2003

Embattled Democrats couldn’t catch a break on Wednesday: not only did the party go 0-5 in a series of special elections for the House of Representatives, but the Democratic National Committee disclosed that it raised just $4.3 million last month – its worst tally for the month of May since 2003, when the DNC raised just $2.7 million.
Meanwhile, the party’s bundlers plowed money into the special election campaign of Jon Ossoff, who lost his bid for Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price’s old seat in Georgia’s 6th Congressional district.
***
Ossoff’s defeat echoed the failure of the Clinton campaign: Ahead of the vote, pollsters and party leaders assured the public that Ossoff’s strong polling in a staunchly red district was emblematic of the public’s dissatisfaction with President Donald Trump.
Instead, Republican Karen Handel carried the day, defeating Ossoff by a comfortable margin of more than 10,000 votes. The loss was especially demoralizing for Democrats, who’d hoped that a victory in a staunchly red district would cement the party’s chances of winning a majority in the House during next year’s midterm election.

Michael Moore Is Crying His Ossoff: “Dems Have No Message, No Plan, No Leaders”

Michael Moore, the liberal activist who perfectly predicted Trump’s shocking victory last November and has led the “Resistance” ever since, would like for you to know that he’s really upset that Jon Ossoff got destroyed last night despite the efforts of some San Francisco Democrats to spend an obscene amount of money to buy a Congressional seat in Georgia.
“If u think the party who’s won the vote in 6 o last 7 Prez votes but holds ZERO power & is now 0-4 in 2017 votes is going to win next year…get a friggin’ clue.”
“The DNC & DCCC has NO idea how 2 win cause they have no message, no plan, no leaders, won’t fight & hate the resistance.”
“I say this to my 7.5 million ppl on social media & the millions who watch my movies & read my books: Are we going 2 sit by & let this happen?””
If u think the party who's won the vote in 6 o last 7 Prez votes but holds ZERO power &is now 0-4 in 2017 votes is going to win next year…

Report On Murder Of DNC Staffer Seth Rich Speculates ‘Hired Killer’ May Have Done It

A new report from a group led by Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman claims that Democratic staffer Seth Rich was likely killed by either ‘a hired killer or serial murderer.’
The group is called the Profiling Project, and it is reportedly staffed with George Washington University graduate students who are studying forensic psychology. It’s funded by Burkman, who has offered a $105,000 reward for solving Rich’s murder.
Rich, a 27-year-old Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer at the time of his murder in July 2016 in Washington, D. C. was the victim of a botched attempted robbery, police have said.
The Profiling Project report released Tuesday claims that ‘Seth’s death does not appear to be a random homicide’ or a ‘robbery gone bad,’ though it provides no evidence that the killer was hired by someone.
The group, however, received ‘no special access to any materials, evidence or persons and due to case sensitivity, conducted only informal, limited interviews. The bulk of our report is based on statistics, prior research and Logos.’

AG Sessions Blasts Russian Collusion Accusations As “Appalling And Detestable Lie”

After yet another 2+ hour public hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee on alleged collusion between members of the Trump campaign and Russian spies, we are still no closer to anyone providing a shred of tangible evidence as to the validity of such claims despite Democrats and the mainstream media dedicating virtually every waking moment to the express pursuit of such evidence. That said, it all makes for great, and neverending, political theater and below are the highlights from today’s episode of the continuing insanity.
Sessions set an aggressive tone for the hearing by preemptively stating during his opening remarks that “any suggestion I participated in or was aware of collusion with the Russians is an appalling and detestable lie.”
“Let me state this clearly, colleagues, I have never met with or had any conversation with any Russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election in the United States, further I have no knowledge of any such conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign… any suggestion I participated in or was aware of collusion with the Russians is an appalling and detestable lie.”
But perhaps no one did a better job of thoroughly dismantling the “Russian collusion” narrative than Senator Tom Cotton who pointed out, as have we on multiple occasions, that no one, including James Comey, has seen a single shred of evidence to suggest that Trump or any of his associates colluded with Russian spies to steal emails from Hillary Clinton or the DNC and/or to generally stage a coup in the United States.

INSIDE THE ODD AND UNDER-REPORTED DNC FRAUD LAWSUIT

Since last summer, a group of people who supported the campaign for Senator Bernie Sanders, the Vermont socialist, have been waging a legal battle against the DNC for alleged fraud. But the ongoing class-action lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee related to last year’s presidential election just took a turn for the weird and now involves the Capitol Police.
The latest wrinkle in the still oddly underreported DNC fraud lawsuit is spooky, weird, and yet possibly also incredibly lame. – The Florida Squeeze
The claims state simply that the DNC and then-chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz worked to undermine Sanders in favor of Hillary Clinton during the democrat primary election. This particular lawsuit isn’t being widely discussed amongst the mainstream media’s talking heads either. There is an active attempt to undermine this story my mainstream media. The issue was first brought to the attention of the public when WikiLeaks released the John Podesta emails. Many detailed an active takedown of Sanders in favor of Hillary Clinton and were the main reason Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned from her position as the DNC chairperson.

“She Has No Self-Awareness”: RNC Chair Blasts Hillary Clinton For Her Election Excuses

RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel took Hillary Clinton to task for again refusing to take responsibility for her embarrassing election loss, telling Fox & Friends that the former secretary of state ‘seems to be totally unaware’ of how her excuses remind the public of why it rejected her in the first place, as the Hill reports.
“She seems to be totally unaware. She has no self-awareness. Maybe she needs a class or something that we can send her to,” McDaniel said on “Fox & Friends.” “Because there’s no accountability and it reinforces why she lost every time she goes out and does these interviews.’
McDaniel was blasting Clinton for a laughable interview she gave on Wednesday at Recode’s ‘Code’ conference, where Clinton blamed everything and everyone, from the FBI, to the DNC, to the Russians to internalized misogyny.

“I Was The Victim”: Hillary Blames DNC, NYT, “1,000 Russian Agents,” Comey And WikiLeaks For Loss

Earlier today Hillary Clinton offered up what some have described as one of the most delusional interviews of all time at Recode’s CodeCon conference, in which she blamed everything and everyone, including but certainly not limited to: FBI Director Comey, “1,000s of Russian agents”, right-wing media outlets, Russia, sexism, WikiLeaks, Russia, a funding deficit at the DNC, the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United, the New York Times (yes, the NYT) …oh, and Russia, for her 2016 election loss. And while she certainly “takes responsibility” for every decision she made, Hillary desperately wants you to understand that’s not why she lost…because, you know, Russia.
“I take responsibility for every decision I made, but that’s not why I lost.” Of course, in all of her rambling, Hillary never offered up a viable conclusion on why “Russian hackers” were only able to sway voters in Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania but not in places like Virginia, Nevada, New Mexico and Colorado, states where anti-Russian tinfoil must be impervious.
The following tweet pretty much sums up the interview.
So Trump, who the left thinks is a moron, according to Hillary organized Macedonian websites, Russian agents, algorithms, & cyber hackings

WannaCry Ransomware Attack Linked To China, Not Russia Or North Korea

A few weeks ago, in what was described as one of the “worst-ever recorded attacks of its kind,” the WannaCry ransomware virus spread the globe at an alarming rate, seizing control of private networks and demanding bitcoin payments to relinquish that control. As we pointed out then, and not terribly surprisingly, those pesky “Russian hackers,” the same ones that lay relatively dormant for years then suddenly emerged from hibernation in 2016 to hack the DNC, John Podesta and the entire 2016 U. S. presidential election, were initially considered to be the most likely culprits for the WannaCry virus.
Finally, there is the question who is behind this coordinated global attack. Not surprisingly, Russia has been named. There is a high-probability that Russian-language cyber-criminals were behind the attack, said Aleks Gostev, chief cybersecurity expert for Kaspersky Labs. ‘Ransomware is traditionally their topic,’ he said cited by Bloomberg. ‘The geography of attacks that hit post-Soviet Union most also suggests that.’
But, while blaming the Russians was undoubtedly the most convenient solution for advancing the mainstream media’s “Russian hacking” narrative, like much of what has been reported over the past 6 months, it may have not been grounded in reality and/or supported by facts. As the BBC reports today, new analysis from Flashpoint suggests that the WannaCry virus may have instead emerged from China.

DNC STAFFER ARRESTED FOR POSSESSING ‘INFANT PORN’ FEATURING BABIES AS YOUNG AS 6 MONTHS OLD

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is hiring! There’s a vacancy in his administration for a computer programmer analyst, in the Department of Design and Construction. That’s because Jacob Schwartz, 29, a DNC staffer and former analyst, has been arrested and charged with being in possession of ‘kiddie porn’ involving children as young as 6 months old.
Schwartz is also the president of the Manhattan Young Democrats and the downstate region vice president of the New York State Young Democrats. In other words, he was a ‘made’ Democrat, part of the inner circle of budding influential NYC politicians, who was even friends with Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, Robbie Mook.
Schwartz was caught with 3,000 child pornography images and 89 videos on his laptop after he downloaded them from the Internet. He surrendered his laptop to police, signed a release granting them permission to do a search of his hard drive, and was subsequently arrested. He has since posted $7,500 bail.
De Blasio would not comment on the arrest, ignoring questions from reporters about one of his team members. The Post reported Schwartz got the job after completing an internship, with de Blasio’s administration. Those political internships are often paid little compensation in exchange for being able to work with high-profile politicians.
