Impeachment Backfiring: New Poll Finds Independents Drifting to Supporting Trump

A new poll finds that independent voters are starting to drift over to supporting Trump instead of following the Democrats down the road to impeachment.

Even as the Democrats screech daily about impeaching Trump, a new poll finds that independent voters are starting to drift over to supporting Trump instead of following the Democrats down the road to impeachment.

Indeed, according to PJ Media, independent voters are suddenly favoring Trump over all the Democrat front runners for the 2020 election.

“A new IBD-TIPP poll shows President Trump has gained significant ground with independent voters in head-to-head matchups with the Democrat Party frontrunners for president,” Matt Margolis, a contributor to PJ Media, wrote on Monday.

According to the IBD-TIPP poll, former Vice President Joe Biden now only leads Mr. Trump by one percentage point among independents. That is down from Biden’s 18-point lead last month. Sen. Elizabeth Warren fares even worse. 49% of independents backed Trump, while 43% favored the senator.

Socialist Bernie Sanders is in no better shape. Independents favored Trump at 48 percent while supporting Sanders at only 44 percent. That blew out Sanders’s nine-point lead from just last month.

“What caused such a dramatic swing in Trump’s favor with independents? Is it a coincidence that this poll was conducted after Nancy Pelosi formally launched an impeachment inquiry into President Trump? Not to me,” Margolis noted.

“Impeachment is not exactly popular among voters, and only a minority of independents support it,” he added. “Many on the right have warned Democrats that impeachment fever will only benefit Trump in the long run — and they appear to be proven right by this poll.”

It appears that the Democrat’s gamble on its fake “impeachment inquiry” is simply annoying voters, not pushing them to support the Democrats in 2020.

Indeed, it appears that this whole fake impeachment effort is less an effort to actually remove Trump via impeachment than it is a campaign gambit to help whatever Democrat wins the party’s nomination.

What Democrats are doing is not an actual, legal impeachment process. Until a House vote for impeachment is made and then articles of impeachment are entered into the record, no actual impeachment is really in gear. So far, the Democrats in the House have not made any moves to launch an actual, legal impeachment process.

It’s all a show to fool voters into thinking something real is underway and to get voters to side with Democrats in 2020.

Left Media Ignores Joe Biden’s Use of Arcane Tax Rules to Avoid Paying Taxes

The left is conveniently ignoring the fact that Joe Biden used a series of IRS tax rules to get out of paying taxes, even as they attack Trump for the same thing.

Published

The leftists are at it again, trying to attack Donald Trump over his tax returns. But they are conveniently ignoring the fact that Joe Biden used the same rules to get out of paying his own taxes.

According to his public filings, Biden used a series of tax code loopholes to avoid paying hundreds of thousands, if not millions in taxes over the last several decades.

The Biden family used rules governing an S-Corporation to get out of paying taxes on the millions they were making.

The news was reported by Wall Street Journal writer Chris Jacobs in his August article, “How the Bidens Dodged the Payroll Tax.”

Jacobs explained how an S-Corp works to avoid taxes.

“Joe Biden responded to President Trump’s partial suspension of payroll-tax collections with a statement calling it the ‘first shot in a new, reckless war on Social Security,’” Jacobs explained. He continued: “‘Our seniors and millions of Americans with disabilities are under enough stress without Trump putting their hard-earned Social Security benefits in doubt.’ Mr. Biden’s objections might be more persuasive had he and his wife, Jill, not gone out of their way to avoid funding seniors’ entitlement benefits. According to their tax returns, in 2017 and 2018 the Bidens and his wife Jill avoided payroll taxes on nearly $13.3 million in income from book royalties and speaking fees. They did so by classifying the income as S-corporation profits rather than taxable wages.”

Jacobs said the Bidens established the S-Corp to avoid paying the payroll taxes on millions of dollars in income meaning that Joe and Jill Biden avoided paying income tax on the earnings.

“According to the Urban Institute, a couple featuring one high earner and one average earner, retiring this year, will have paid a total of $209,000 in Medicare taxes during their working lives,” Jacobs wrote. “The Bidens avoided paying nearly twice that much in Medicare taxes during two years. The maximum payroll tax affected by Mr. Trump’s suspension is $1,984—less than 1/250th of the amount the Bidens avoided in 2017-18. The Bidens didn’t avoid any Social Security tax, which applied only to the first $127,200 of income in 2017 and $128,400 in 2018. But they would under Mr. Biden’s tax plan, which would impose the 12.4% Social Security tax on income over $400,000; the same loophole he used in 2017-18 would shield him from his own tax. And how can Mr. Biden claim to protect Medicare and ObamaCare when he avoided more than $500,000 in taxes that fund the two programs? The media have largely ignored the Bidens’ accounting legerdemain, fixating on Mr. Trump’s tax returns instead. But at least the president isn’t looking to raise taxes on everyone else.”

So, while the left is attacking Donald Trump over what he did or did not pay, these same hypocrites are ignoring what Joe Biden has been doing for years.

It figures, huh?

Dwayne Johnson Abandons America, Endorses Joe Biden in Video Tweet

Action star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has “gone big” and in a video interview posted to Twitter in which he endorsed Joe Biden for president.

Published

Action star and former wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has “gone big” and in a softball video interview posted to Twitter in which he endorsed Joe Biden for president.

When he first hit the entertainment scene, “The Rock” played to the conservative base and often dissed leftism. But now that he is a big money star and he doesn’t need his conservative fans anymore, this “centrist” actor is diving headlong into hardcore leftist politics by endorsing the senile Biden and his extremist left-wing running mate, Kamala Harris.

In his tweet posted on Sunday in which he claims to be a “political independent,” Johnson told his 14.8 million Twitter followers that he is jumping onboard the Biden/Harris campaign for president.

“We are approximately five weeks away from Election Day,” Johnson began in his video which contained a awning interview with Joe Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris.

“As a political independent & centrist,” Johnson tweeted, “I’ve voted for both parties in the past. In this critical presidential election, I’m endorsing @JoeBiden & @KamalaHarris. Progress takes courage, humanity, empathy, strength, KINDNESS & RESPECT. We must ALL VOTE.”

Johnson continued in his video saying that this election is “arguably the most critical election our country has seen in decades.”

“Now that said, I’m going to be pushing this political conversation just a little bit more,” the Hobbs & Shaw star continued in his introduction to the interview with Biden and Harris.

“Look, I’ve got friends in all parties, but one thing we can always agree on is the conversation and the dialogue, and where that conversation lands is always the most critical part,” Johnson said. “Now, this is something that I’ve certainly not done in the past, so I’m gonna go big. You guys know me, if I go, I go big!”

From there Johnson told fans that he “sat down” with Biden and Harris — though it was through the Internet, not in person.

Also, just before the interview, the actor again claimed he is a “centrist,” saying, “as a registered independent for years now with centrist ideologies” that he feels Biden and Harris’ far left ideas are the best ones for America.

Clearly, Johnson is no longer a “centrist.”

From there, Johnson went into a softball interview with Biden and Harris where he asked no hard questions.

Colorado Dem. Sec. of State Sends Cards to Remind Dead and Ineligible People to Register to Vote

Colorado’s Democrat Sec. of State, Jena Griswold, sent out 750,000 voter registration notices many of which went to ineligible and even dead people.

Published

The office of Colorado’s Democrat Secretary of State, Jena Griswold, recently sent out 750,000 voter registration notices, many of which went to ineligible voters and even dead people.

Judd Choate, Director the Secretary of State’s Elections Division, admitted last week that an unknown number of these reminder notices went to people who should not be getting one.

Choate claimed that the state used data from the National Electronic Registration Information System to mail the cards. The system is supposed to comb records and cancel names of people who have moved to another state and registered there, died, or otherwise showed through their data that they are ineligible to vote in Colorado.

One such card ended up at the address of voter Karen Anderson. It was addressed to her mother who has been dead for more than 50 years.

“I don’t know where they’re harvesting names from but (they’re) doing it without obviously doing any kind of check,” Anderson told Denver’s CBS affiliate.

Choate admitted that often the cards get sent to people that can’t legally register to vote in the Centennial State.

“Yes, it’s true that occasionally it will go to a person that it shouldn’t go to, someone who’s already registered or somebody that’s below the age of 18, but the vast, vast majority go to the people who are eligible and then many of them follow-up and become registered voters and they get their ballot in the mail and can vote in our election,” Choate said according to CBS Denver.

CBS heard from at least a dozen more local Denver residents who saw such postcards addressed to people who should not be getting them. Some included foreigners who are ineligible to vote in the U.S.A. and more were also dead, like Anderson’s mother.

This is how Democrats work, folks. This is how they cheat.

Trump Surging with Black and Hispanic Voters In Must-Win States

The data are showing that President Trump’s support among blacks and Hispanics is surging in critical states with less than 40 days until Election Day.

Published

The data are showing that President Donald Trump’s support among blacks and Hispanics is surging in critical states with less than 40 days until Election Day.

This is noteworthy because all Trump needs to do is peel off a small number of minority voters in key states to beat any Democrat, much less Slow Joe Biden.

Recent polling is finally beginning to show that Trump is doing even better this year among minorities than he did in 2016. And in his previous election, he already had more minority support than previous Republicans.

According to American Greatness:

In Florida, an NBC/Marist poll conducted earlier this month showed President Trump with 50 percent of the Hispanic vote to Biden’s 46 percent. In 2016, Clinton won 62 percent of Hispanics compared to 35 percent for Trump. Trump is also outperforming 2016 with black Floridians. The same poll shows him with 11 percent support compared to 8 percent in the last election. If those numbers hold, Florida is simply unwinnable for Biden.

Polling in other states tells a similar story. A poll of 750 likely voters conducted for the Center for American Greatness in Nevada by Rasmussen Reports shows Biden leading Trump by just a single point (49 percent to 48 percent). As in Florida, Trump is running strong with Hispanics, getting 47 percent support to Biden’s 49 percent.

For comparison, Trump got 29 percent of the Hispanic vote in 2016 to Hillary Clinton’s 60 percent. The poll also shows Trump with 41 percent of the black vote. Interestingly, he also ran stronger among bin Nevada in 2016 than he did nationally, so this is a continuation of that trend.

These numbers are important in many ways.

Trump already has a good chance of once again winning Arizona, Florida, and North Carolina. Democrats have wisps of hope in these states, but it seems likely that Trump will still win them.

Another set of key states are Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. Trump lost Minnesota, but just barely. And he barely won the other three.

The point here is that if Trump again wins the first three states, the Democrats must make a big sweep of the second four mentioned. But that is already seeming unlikely, especially with his growing numbers among minority voters.

All this means that if enough black and Hispanic voters cross over into Trump territory, it could make all the difference in all seven of these states by leeching just enough of Biden’s votes away from him to give Trump the close margins he needs to win.

This all has to be very worrisome to the Democrats.

Black College Says Biden Lied About Going to School There

Joe Biden claimed that he attended the historically black Delaware State University. But the school is finally calling Joe out on the claim.

Published

Joe Biden recently claimed that he attended the historically black Delaware State University. But the school is finally calling Joe out on the claim and saying he was never enrolled there.

Carlos Holmes, director of news service for Delaware State, has finally come out and confirmed that Joe Biden was never a student at Delaware State University. The closest Joe ever was to “being” at the school was when he gave two commencement speeches over the years.

“Vice President Biden did not attend DSU,” said Mr. Holmes told the Washington Times. “However, he was the Commencement keynote speaker in 2003 and [2016], and during the former he was awarded an honorary doctoral degree.”

Per the Washington Times:

Mr. Biden made the claim ahead of the South Carolina Democratic primary during a town hall held Oct. 26, 2019, at historic Wilson High School in Florence, which was founded in 1866 by the Freedmen’s Bureau for Black children seeking an education.

“I got started out of an HBCU, Delaware State — now, I don’t want to hear anything negative about Delaware State,” Mr. Biden told the audience, drawing laughter, as shown on video. “They’re my folks.”

Biden has lied repeatedly about his history over the years.

He claimed he was the first in his family to attend college. That is not true. He also claimed he came from a family of coal miners. Also not true.

Speaking of college, Biden once claimed that he graduated in the top half of his class at Syracuse University’s law school in 1968. In truth he graduated 76th in a class of 85 students. He also claimed that he had a “full academic scholarship,” that he earned three degrees, and that he was named the “outstanding political science student” for his class. But he only earned a half scholarship, earned only one degree, and was not the student who won the outstanding political science plaudit.

He also claimed that he attended civil rights marches in the 60s and 70s. But no one has found any evidence that he ever attended a single civil rights march.

Military Ballots Cast for Trump Found in Garbage in Pennsylvania

The Department of Justice, Thursday, reported that a number of military ballots — most with votes for Trump — were discovered in the garbage in Pennsylvania.

The Department of Justice, Thursday, reported that a number of military ballots — most with votes for Trump — were discovered in the garbage in Pennsylvania.

The issue came to light when the DOJ sent a letter to election authorities in Pennsylvania demanding that they change their practices to avoid disenfranchising members of the military.

In his letter to Luzerne County officials, U.S. attorney David Freed said ballot materials were found in a dumpster. Freed said their investigation yielded “troubling” findings, including that the county allegedly improperly opened ballots,” Fox News reported.

“Even though your staff has made some attempts to reconstitute certain of the improperly opened ballots, there is no guarantee that any of these votes will be counted in the general election. In addition, our investigation has revealed that all or nearly all envelopes received in the elections office were opened as a matter of course,” Freed’s letter read.

“It was explained to investigators the envelopes used for official overseas, military, absentee and mail-in ballot requests are so similar, that the staff believed that adhering to the protocol of preserving envelopes unopened would cause them to miss such ballot requests. Our interviews further revealed that this issue was a problem in the primary election–therefore a known issue–and that the problem has not been corrected,” he added.

“While the assigned investigators are continuing their work including reviewing additional discarded materials, it is imperative that the issues identified be corrected.”

For her part, Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis claimed that she requested an investigation to look into the matter.

This happens in every liberal state. The absentee votes of members of our military are frequently discarded and never counted.

Absentee Ballots Found Among Discarded Mail in Ditch in Wisconsin

The Police in Greenville, Wisconsin, reported finding three trays of mail — including absentee ballots — in a ditch.

Published

The Police in Greenville, Wisconsin, reported finding three trays of mail — including absentee ballots — in a ditch.

Now is the right time to remind you all that a major U.S. postal workers union endorsed the senile Joe Biden for president.

According to the Outagamie County Sheriff’s Office, the mail was found dumped in a ditch near Appleton International Airport, WLUK reported.

Local post office officials later reported that some of the mail included Wisconsin absentee ballots.

“The United States Postal Inspection Service immediately began investigating and we reserve further comment on this matter until that is complete,” spokesman Bob Sheehan wrote.

The discovery comes U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero ruled in New York that the Post Office must “prioritize” mail-in ballots.

“The right to vote is too vital a value in our democracy to be left in a state of suspense in the minds of voters weeks before a presidential election, raising doubts as to whether their votes will ultimately be counted,” Marrero wrote in his Sept. 21 ruling.

Marreo, a Bill Clinton appointee, also slammed President Trump for sending “ambivalent managerial signals” about the mail service.

“Conflicting, vague, and ambivalent managerial signals could also sow substantial doubt about whether the USPS is up to the task, whether it possesses the institutional will power and commitment to its historical mission, and so to handle the exceptional burden associated with a profoundly critical task in our democratic system, that of collecting and delivering election mail a few weeks from now,” Marrero wrote.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t think President Trump or Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has sent “signals” that mail carriers should dump the mail in a ditch near a Wisconsin airport.
