McCaskill Not Happy With Politically Damaging Undercover Video, Demands Investigation

Too little, too late.

Published

Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill is not at all happy about the undercover video released by James O’Keefe earlier this week that revealed her true feelings and policy positions on gun control that she had been keeping a secret for political purposes.

In fact, she’s so perturbed by the whole incident she’s now asking Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, who she is actually in a tight political race with, to investigate the video. One has to wonder what, exactly, it would matter at this point to have an investigation, seeing as how the damage has already been done.

“McCaskill’s campaign said it will pursue legal action in connection with this incident,” KMBC News reports. “The campaign is also asking for Attorney General Josh Hawley —​ McCaskill’s Republican opponent — to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate violations of the state’s Merchandising Act.”

In one particularly problematic moment in the video, McCaskill’s staffers at a campaign site in Columbia, Missouri, says that Planned Parenthood uses “other means” to support and give money to the senator’s campaign in order to hide their support from the red-state voters.

“So what were you telling me last night about Planned Parenthood?” asked the undercover reporter.

“How they never — they don’t donate to Claire because they don’t want to ostracize pro-life Democrats in Missouri,” the staffer replied. Another staffer provides further explanation: “They go through other means to support and give money. They just don’t directly give money from their PACs.”

Here’s the video that’s causing all of the commotion:

Perhaps this situation wouldn’t be going so badly if McCaskill and other politicians were simply honest and open about what they really believe instead of attempting to conceal it in the hopes of winning an election by having more broad appeal?

CNN Says ‘Frustrated’ Democrats Think Trump ‘Go Back’ Comments Are ‘Brilliant’

Trump takes no prisoners.

Published

According to that bastion of journalistic integrity we call CNN, multiple Democrats in the House have said that there are many, many folks in their party who are frustrated with the female freshmen in Congress — known as the “Squad” — and as a result of the building tension and anger, feel Trump’s “go back” comments aimed at Rep. Ilhan Omar are “politically brilliant.” Well, it’s nice to know we the people aren’t the only ones sick of the Squad. Maybe we’ll actually take action against them and work to ensure she does not get re-elected? That would be awesome. via The Daily Wire: In a report published Wednesday after the Trump rally in North Carolina — which included a headline-grabbing moment in which some in the crowd began to chant “Send her back!” in response to Trump’s criticism of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her “vicious anti-Semitic screeds” — CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash reported on the growing frustration among some of the House Democrats over the increased prominence of the “Squad”: Reps. Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). The conversations with several Democrats, whom Tapper and Bash stress span the political spectrum, took place over the last few days — and before the North Carolina rally. “The President won this one,” one House Democrat told CNN in reference to Trump’s focus on the Squad and the Democrats vote Tuesday to condemn his “go back” comments. “What the President has done is politically brilliant. Pelosi was trying to marginalize these folks, and the President has now identified the entire party with them.” “The President’s words and actions speak for themselves,” said another. “We need to focus on the issues that got (Democrats) here: jobs, health care … instead of the issues the President…

From our friends at DC Dirty Laundry: Wow! Many are celebrating this woman pushing a priest off a stage in Brazil. The mass was being broadcast widely and word has it that she did it because… Well… Here’s Gary to tell you why… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJFiE5TQm9c So injuring priests is now celebrated in the LGBT community? Seriously? This unidentified woman is now a hero to lesbians and gays all over the world. But come on! Is this how you make a point? Violence against a priest who just ran a youth camp for 50,000 kids is evil. Horrifying children to make your point? Unbelievable! More from Newsweek: Brazilian priest who is celebrated in the country for his lively sermons was violently pushed from a stage yesterday while delivering mass in Cachoeira Paulista, São Paulo. The incident occurred shortly before 3 p.m. after a woman was able to rush past security and approach Father Marcelo Rossi during a ceremony at the headquarters of Canção Nova, which is a Brazilian Catholic community known for broadcasting religious material online. Rossi, a preaching powerhouse who has reportedly sold millions of musical records in Brazil and was once dubbed a “pop-star priest” by the Associated Press, was seen in video footage of the unexpected mass invasion toppling from the stage as onlookers watched on in shock. Another video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sy9tuV32Ie0 The thing, the priest will instantly forgive this deranged radical lunatic because he’s a good man. And yet, the clearly liberal protester will not care.
