Pelosi Fails to Force Facebook to Remove Trump Ad of Her Ripping State of the Union Speech

Nancy Pelosi failed to force Facebook and Twitter to delete an ad showing her ripping up President Trump’s State of the Union speech.

Liberal Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi failed to force Facebook and Twitter to delete an ad showing her ripping up President Trump’s State of the Union speech.

The Trump campaign posted the video to Twitter and Facebook last Tuesday and almost immediately, Pelosi began attacking the ad as “designed to mislead.”

The ad uses video of Pelosi ripping up her printed copy of the president’s State of the Union speech given to her on the night of the speech. The video is cut with images of Trump introducing 100-year-old Tuskegee Airman Charles McGee.

Trump tweeted the video Thursday causing Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill to slam the social media giants for allowing the posts.

“The latest fake video of Speaker Pelosi is deliberately designed to mislead and lie to the American people, and every day that these platforms refuse to take it down is another reminder that they care more about their shareholders’ interests than the public’s interests,” Hammill wrote.

But, Facebook, for one, said that the ad is not “fake” because Pelosi did rip the speech and the president did speak about the veteran airman.

“Sorry, are you suggesting the President didn’t make those remarks and the Speaker didn’t rip the speech?” Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said in a tweet replying to Hammill’s complaint.

For its part, Twitter also refused to pull down the Trump ad.

The video has received 2.1 million views, reached almost 5 million people and was shared more than 23,000 times as of Friday night, Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh told CNBC.

Pelosi has stepped up her attacks on Facebook in recent months. She slammed the social media companies as standing against America. “All they want are their tax cuts and no antitrust action against them,” she said.

Democratic Voters Begin to Admit Biden is Lost Cause in 2020 Race

Are the Democrats ready to say sayonara to Sleepy Joe?

Published

on

Former Vice President Joe Biden was supposed to be the one in 2020.  His proximity to the left’s believed Obama administration, as well as his centrist tendencies, gave him the appearance of a real contender against the Trump juggernaut.

Unfortunately, a series of somewhat expected gaffes and temper tantrums has steadily weighed upon his candidacy, including this week’s bizarre outburst in which Biden referred to a female even attendee as a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier“…whatever that means.

All of this gibberish, combined with the former VP’s abysmal showing in Iowa, has led many Democratic voters to begin writing him off for 2020.

Forty-five minutes after Joe Biden’s first campaign event was supposed to start on Saturday, his crowd had grown restless. The former vice president wasn’t at the Rex Theatre in downtown Manchester and those crammed inside were wondering just how much longer they’d have to suck in the heated air before they get to see him speak.

In the rafters, a chant broke out.

“We Want Joe!” the voices said, overpowering the soundtrack of classic rock and commercial motown that had been playing on blast to keep the crowd from completely dozing off.

But no one picked it up. Instead, after two renditions, the men simply stopped. And those who’d bothered to consider joining in the chorus did what they’d been doing since it became clear that the event would not start on time: they dumped their faces back into their cellphones.

This is the sort of stuff that has leftists worried.

“This is a microcosm of the failure of this campaign,” said Adam Ross, a Long Islander who helped start the chant. “The energy is slowly dissipating from this room.”

“I had a hunch, watching the debate last night, that maybe, just maybe, his heart was not in it,” said Jim Barry, who had come to New Hampshire from Buffalo, New York. “This was a call to duty for him. But it doesn’t feel like he actually wants it.”

“2008 was his time,” said Kevin Both, who also was from New York, and who had traveled there with Barry. “Now, there’s not much gas left in the tank.”

With Bernie and Buttigieg on the rise, it appears as though Biden’s time has come.  The only real hope now would be a spectacular showing in New Hampshire, where both Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg seem destined to tussle over the top spot.

Sanders Campaign Not Satisfied with Iowa Results, Will Seek Recanvassing

Paranoia is on the rise yet again over at Camp Bernie.

Published

on

Bernie Sanders is looking for a big win in New Hampshire this week, but that doesn’t mean that he’s done with Iowa yet either.

Last Monday, our nation witnessed an unmitigated disaster that arrived in the form of a the Iowa caucuses.  Instead of propelling us forward toward the 2020 primaries with a more cogent idea of who was truly a contender for the Democratic nomination, it was as if a figurate grenade had been tossed into the left’s metaphorical bunker.  The results arrived eventually and were surprising enough to suggest that any similar results in New Hampshire could be a sign of foul play.

The confusion and calamity has at least one candidate asking for a partial re-do.

Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign plans to ask for a “partial recanvass” of the results of last week’s Iowa caucuses.

A campaign aide confirmed the plans Sunday night, ahead of a Monday deadline for candidates to ask the Iowa Democratic Party to recanvass the results. A recanvass is not a recount, but a check of the vote count against paper records to ensure the counts were reported accurately.

The state party released updated results on Sunday showing Pete Buttigieg leading Sanders by two state delegate equivalents out of 2,152 counted.

The Associated Press remains unable to declare a winner because it believes the results may not be fully accurate and are still subject to potential revision.

Sanders and his supporters have been on high alert for Democratic Party shenanigans in 2020 after their last bout against the DNC back in 2016.

Left Wing Pundit: ‘If Buttigieg Wins New Hampshire, the Primaries are Rigged’

If the Democrats hope to have any shot at retaking the White House in 2020, they’ll first need to teach their constituents to trust them again.

Published

For supporters of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential run, there is nothing more worrisome than the possibility that the Democratic Party is out to get him.

This is due to the unbelievable revelations that were brought to America’s attention by the whistleblowers at Wikileaks, who disclosed a number of emails from within the 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign that clearly showed collusion between Clinton and the DNC.  This coordinated effort was made in order to essentially “rig” the primaries against Sanders, which in turn decimated the turnout for the Democrats in the general election as his supporters jumped ship on the crooked affair.

There are now fears that the 2020 race could be similarly compromised by a similar cast of characters – something that has at least one left-wing pundit sounding the alarm.

Left-wing populist Michael Tracey says if Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, wins the New Hampshire Democrat primary this week, it will have been a “rigged” process.

During an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Tonight, Tracey said he has been on the ground in New Hampshire and spoken with undecided voters who are now leaning towards Buttigieg after he won the Iowa Democrat Caucus in a highly-criticized process.

Here’s where it gets hairy:

“I still encounter, here and there, undecided voters who say that they are leaning towards Pete or have said that to me in the past several weeks … and I think what they needed really to have their support solidified was some kind of spark. And Iowa pretty apparently provided that spark,” Tracey said.

“And so it wouldn’t shock me at all if he ended up winning New Hampshire on Tuesday and if he does win New Hampshire on Tuesday, it will be … I use the word ‘rigged’ intentionally,” Tracey continued. “And saying the word ‘rigged,’ I don’t necessarily mean that there was some smoke-filled room in Des Moines where Democrat Party brokers got together and said, ‘Hey, we’re going to manipulate the caucus to help Pete.’ But … the scale of the malfeasance and the corruption and the incompetence, whatever combination of those factors was responsible for creating the outcome in Iowa that occurred, it gives the impression of being rigged.”

If the Democrats hope to have any shot at retaking the White House in 2020, they’ll first need to teach their constituents to trust them again.

More Iowa Trouble Emerges as Total Turnout Numbers are Released

Are the Democrats’ hopes for recapturing the White House in 2020 already sunk?

Published

on

While the Democratic Party was certainly aware of the catastrophic results of the Iowa caucuses on Monday, there is another, just as worrisome piece of the puzzle that is just now coming into focus.

Late Monday night, as the nation tuned in to find out once and for all how the Democratic candidates were going to fare in front of actual voters, a terrifying picture emerged.  No results were available whatsoever thanks to a major failure with newly implemented vote-counting software.  Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg declared victory in spite of this absence of information, only to be rebuked by Vermont Senators Bernie Sanders.

When results were finally made available much later in the week, the two were in a statistical tie.

Now, five days removed from the event itself, an ever more worrisome bit of information is coming to light regarding the disastrous night.

Democratic turnout for this week’s Iowa caucuses fell well below expectations, leading some in the party to wonder if the state has become more conservative—or if voters aren’t as enthusiastic about defeating President Trump as they hoped.

Turnout in the Democratic caucuses appeared far short of the record of nearly 240,000 people in 2008, when Barack Obama defeated Hillary Clinton in his first step toward the White House.

With 100% of precincts reporting, results from the Iowa Democratic Party showed more than 176,000 people participated this year, slightly more than showed up in 2016. After record turnout nationally boosted Democrats in the 2018 midterms, the disappointing outing has some in the party worried about whether voters are as passionate about beating Republicans as they were more than a year ago.

This certainly doesn’t bode well for the Democratic Party as a whole, with incumbent Republican President Donald Trump now campaigning for reelection with an impeachment acquittal under his belt.

Joe Biden’s Desperation Shows as Press Secretary Lashes Out

Is Biden floundering? Not according to his press secretary.

Published

on

Former Vice President Joe Biden had long been considered the front runner of the 2020 Democratic primaries, even when he wasn’t technically in the national polling lead.

The reasons for this strange disparity are myriad.  Not only is he just about as Deep State as it gets, but it seems as though a big boost from the Obama family is right around the corner.  Biden could receive an endorsement from the former Commander in Chief at any moment, or, even more dramatically, there’s the possibility that Michelle Obama could find herself on the ticket as a possible VP pick.

Furthermore, the Democratic establishment seems hellbent on nominating Biden because, in their eyes, he’s the only candidate close enough to the political center of the nation to snatch away midwestern moderate votes from Donald Trump in the general election.

But Biden’s in trouble.  His showing in Iowa was horrendous and the New Hampshire debate was a disaster.  That is perhaps why the former VP’s press secretary is going on the offensive.

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s press secretary Symone Sanders went after his two top rivals after the debate in New Hampshire on Friday and dispelled the notion that he was throwing in the towel after a lackluster performance in the Iowa Caucus.

She said there were two poignant exchanges to note — both with Biden attacking Sanders.

“One on health care. Sen. Sanders said he wrote the damn bill, but he either can’t or won’t tell you how much the damn thing is going to cost,” she said.

She said the other one was on guns. “When asked to respond to Sen. Sanders’ record on guns, Vice President Biden noted that Sen. Sanders voted five times against the Brady Bill, a bill that Vice President Biden championed.”

She said the campaign “fully intend[s]” to compete in New Hampshire, despite recent polls showing Sanders as the top candidate. But, she said, the campaign is looking forward to the “nominating contest — Nevada, South Carolina, on through Super Tuesday.”

“He is here to stay, we are still in it, and I think this was reinforced this evening,” she said.

Secretary Sanders did have the cognizance to recognize that Biden’s Iowa performance was troubling, but that optimism was still strong within the campaign.

Buttigieg Campaign Accused of Altering Town Hall Video to Add Applause

Will this quell the rise of Mayor Pete?

Published

on

Last night’s New Hampshire Democratic debate was very much a make-or-break moment for several of the 2020 candidates.

Former Vice President Joe Biden was under a particularly bright spotlight after his abysmal showing in Iowa, where he very nearly fell out of the top tier of the race.  His desperation was palpable on the debate stage as well, with more than a few observers noting that Biden was particularly loud last night.

Also on the national radar was Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who essentially tied Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in Iowa.  In New Hampshire, Sanders has a distinct geographical advantage, however, and it was the democratic socialist’s debate to lose.

Now, in a bizarre twist to the tale, Buttigieg’s campaign has been accused of altering video footage of a recent town hall event to make it appear as though the South Bend, Indiana native received more applause than he did.

In one of the clips, shared by Team Pete HQ from a town hall last year, former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg pointed to statistical indicators that the current generation will be the first to not be as financially well off as the previous generation.

“To me, that is not just a concern for our generation, it’s a concern that calls on us to build an alliance among generations to try to make sure that the future really is better than the past,” Buttigieg told an attendee, sparking audible applause with a graphic plugging Thursday night’s televised event.

However, the Center for Popular Democracy Action, a group supporting fellow Democratic candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., resurfaced the original clip which did not feature any applause. Buttigieg further elaborated with his response, which later did receive some applause.

With Buttigieg on the rise, there is little doubt that the Democratic field will seize on this misstep in the coming days.

Bernie Overwhelmingly Won the Vote of Iowans Who Don’t Speak English

Self-avowed socialist Bernie Sanders won nearly all the non-English speaking voters in the Iowa caucuses in Cedar Rapids.

Published

on

According to the numbers, self-avowed socialist Bernie Sanders won nearly all the non-English speaking voters in the Iowa caucuses held in Cedar Rapids.

What a surprise, huh?

According to the numbers reported, the Cedar Rapids, Iowa, caucus had 121 voters who do not speak English. And Bernie won 107 of that number, Breitbart News reported.

Translators opened the caucus at Hoover Elementary School in English, Nepali, Swahili, French, Spanish, Lingala, Kirundi and Kinyarwanda. Within minutes, nearly all of the 121 people present had gathered in the west corner of the school gym, where Sanders’ campaign signs were taped to the walls. No other candidates were viable. Unofficially, 107 people picked Sanders, winning him nine delegates at the site.

Breitbart’s John Binder pegged the likely reason:

The support for Sanders among Iowa’s non-English speaking population reveals a trend in which the far-left message of hemispheric open borders, Medicare for All, and convicted criminals getting to vote from their prison cells is resonating with foreign-born voters.

So, it is no surprise that people who have not bothered to learn English well enough to understand how to vote all went for the communist running for the White House.

These people come here from extremist, left-wing nations, don’t bother to become Americans, and then want to vote for someone who spouts the same failed, anti-American tripe that they left behind in the countries where they probably belong.

Breitbart also recently noted that illegal aliens have been reported as being highly supportive of the communist Vermont Senator.

And these are the people that Democrats want to give the ability to vote even though they aren’t even citizens.

Sanders has been extremely vocal about wanting to give away as much welfare, and other support for illegals as he can.

So, if he won the non-English speakers in Cedar Rapids, you can bet he did in the rest of the state, too.
