Karen Waters has pulled in hefty payments from the campaign to run a slate mailer operation after the FEC issued an advisory opinion in October 2004 allowing Waters to run the operation from the Citizens for Waters, her mother’s campaign committee. Prior to 2006, Karen ran the arrangement through LA Vote, a state committee in California.

Karen is in charge of slate mailers, or endorsement mailers, in which candidates pay Rep. Waters’s campaign to appear on mailers that are sent to more than 200,000 residents in the South Central Los Angeles area, where Waters holds a good amount of clout. The mailers contain a sample ballot and quotes of support from Waters.

As of the end of the 2016 election cycle, Karen and her firm Progressive Connections had been paid more than $600,000 in campaign funds from the committee for the running the slate mailers since 2006, the Washington Free Beacon previously reported.

MSNBC, like most other cable news networks, serves as the communications branch of the Democrat Party.

During an interview with Joy-Ann Reid, California Congresswoman Maxine Waters scolded President Trump and told him to keep his mouth shut over the state’s wildfires.

Over 20 people have died.

Trump blames the problem on forest mismanagement.

Waters, who will likely become the chair of the Financial Services Committee when Democrats take over the House in January, claimed that the president and GOP fear her because she’s a “strong, black woman.”

Waters: That’s the opposition talking about what would happen if this strong, black woman Maxine Waters is the chair of the Financial Services Committee.

Waters: “They’ve never seen anybody like me before. There’s never been a woman in the history of this country that’s been the chairperson of the Financial Services Committee, and certainly never a black woman.

Waters: “The president of the United States attempts to talk about things that he has no knowledge of. He doesn’t even understand what goes into fighting a fire, and for him to come out talking about poor management is just another indication that the president is not willing to learn anything. He does not really care about others, and he’s on the attack all of the time. We wish he would keep his mouth shut. California does not need him to be talking about things that he does not know.

Waters: “We need him to bring people together, to be concerned about the safety of our families. So, again, it’s just another Trump who is again reaching in, talking about things that he doesn’t understand, and we need him to just stay away from us.

Disabled Air Force veteran James Berrie wasn’t expecting what happened to him. All he wanted to do was vote.

Instead, he couldn’t.

MSNBC had set up shop in a handicapped parking spot and was unwilling to move in order to accomodate him.

From Daily Wire:

A disabled Air Force veteran says an MSNBC news crew blocked his way into a polling site in Houston when it parked in a handicapped parking spot.

“Went to vote, and found this waiting for us,” James Berrie, who has multiple sclerosis, wrote on Facebook. “The only van accessible spot and they’re filming in it. We asked them to move, pointed out how it was wrong, then went to vote, because it takes time to load up. But came out and still there. Not even packing up, still getting ready for their shot.”

MSNBC reporter Mariana Atencio apologized:

President Trump’s overall approval rating hit 50%.

That’s quite high, considering the majority of news coverage of the commander-in-chief is negative.

An even more interesting statistic should have Democrats very worried.

Black support for Trump has now hit a whopping 40%.

Former President Barack Obama Says Riots Are ‘Detracting From The Larger Cause’

Published

on

Former President Barack Obama came out and denounced the rioting and violence that has taken place over the last several days in the wake of the death of George Floyd, saying that the chaos is detracting from the larger cause and goals of legitimate, peaceful protesters who want to see real change occur in the country. Obama penned a piece that was published on the website, Medium, where he wrote, “The small minority of folks who’ve resorted to violence in various forms, whether out of genuine anger or mere opportunism, are putting innocent people at risk, compounding the destruction of neighborhoods that are often already short on services and investment and detracting from the larger cause.” Here’s more from the Washington Examiner: Obama recalled seeing a video of an elderly black woman crying about the only grocery store in her neighborhood being vandalized, noting the detrimental effects such destruction has on communities in need. “If history is any guide, that store may take years to come back. So let’s not excuse violence, or rationalize it, or participate in it. If we want our criminal justice system, and American society at large, to operate on a higher ethical code, then we have to model that code ourselves,” Obama wrote. Obama asked that individuals who are not pleased with the current state of the justice system in our country and the police actions that are an extension of that system, they need to focus more on change at the local level and participate more in local and state elections. Not bad advice, honestly. “If, going forward, we can channel our justifiable anger into peaceful, sustained, and effective action, then this moment can be a real turning point in our nation’s long journey to live up to our highest ideals,” the former president…

Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany Says Oval Office Address Not Enough To Stop Antifa

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany recently signaled that the chances of hearing President Trump address the country in the wake of the riots exploding around the country due to the death of George Floyd at the hands of a police officer are slim, stating that an address from the Oval Office won’t do anything to dissuade Antifa from stirring up trouble. McEnany has been asked this question about the president addressing the situation numerous times already, and her answer has consistently been that he has spoken on the issue many times. Check out the details from The Washington Examiner: “He has addressed the absolutely horrific video of George Floyd. He’s routinely addressed … the issue of law and order in our streets. He’s issued several statements. … A national Oval Office address is not going to stop antifa. What’s going to stop antifa is action, and this president has committed to acting on this,” McEnany said Monday on Fox & Friends. McEnany tweeted Sunday that the media “FASLELY” reported that Trump has been “‘silent'” on Floyd’s death. She shared a quote in which the president called the killing a “tragedy.” President Trump has pointed the finger at radical left-wing group Antifa for a lot of the violence that has broken out across the country, stating that the US was soon to designate the group a terrorist organization. In all honesty, that is a move that is long, long overdue. Antifa has been responsible for a lot of politically motivated violence over the last few years and it is time for them to pay the piper. Five thousand National Guard troops have now been activated and deployed to some of the cities being hit hard by the civil unrest to help quiet things down a bit. McEnany did say the…
