Florida Dem Candidates For Congress Shalala & Mucarsel-Powell Won’t Return Money From Castro Supporting Rep

Published

on

In what could be a gift for Republicans, two Democrat candidates for U.S. House, Donna Shalala and Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, announced they won’t return campaign contributions from Dem Rep Barbara Lee (CA) who praised Fidel Castro.

The two Dems are in tight races and that was probably a huge mistake as they are both in Florida and many Cuban-Americans absolutely hate Castro, for good reason. Voters came out & voiced their opposition to the candidates, Castro, socialism, and Pelosi who appeared with them for a fundraiser.

Get out & vote Republican if you’re in their districts! Vote for Republicans Carlos Curbelo, and Maria Elvira Salazar! They could decide who’s in control of the House, Dems or Reps!

The Miami Herald reported:

“Barbara Lee never came to Miami.

But the mere mention of the California lawmaker’s name on the programming flier for a campaign event in Coral Gables was enough to trigger a protest, a call for South Florida Democratic candidates to divest from her campaign contributions and an attack ad from a Super PAC aligned with House Speaker Paul Ryan.

The congresswoman, who turned heads in 2016 by praising former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro after his death, was listed as an expected guest at a “Get Out the Vote” event on press releases issued by the campaigns of Democrat Donna Shalala and Debbie Mucarsel-Powell.

Despite the protest flare-up outside the event Wednesday — a crowd of mostly Cuban-American demonstrators yelled and waved anti-communism signs — Shalala and Mucarsel-Powell said Thursday that they will not return the $5,500 Lee donated to their campaigns ahead of the November election.

Lee, whose name was scrubbed from the event without explanation, donated $2,000 to the campaign of Shalala, who is running in Florida’s 27th Congressional District against Republican Maria Elvira Salazar.

Lee also donated $3,500 to Mucarsel-Powell, who is running in Florida’s 26th Congressional District against incumbent Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo.

In a statement to the Herald, Salazar campaign spokesman Jose Luis Castillo hammered Shalala for agreeing to appear alongside Lee and declining to return Lee’s donations.

“[Her] total disconnect and lack of empathy with this community is appalling,” he said. “Barbara Lee’s longtime admiration for Fidel Castro is deeply offensive to the Cuban community, as well as all freedom-loving people everywhere.”

After Castro’s death in 2016, Lee told the San Jose Mercury News that “we need to stop and pause and mourn his loss” and that she was “very sad for the Cuban people.”

“He led a revolution in Cuba that led social improvements for his people,” Lee said then, adding that during her eight meetings with Castro over the years, she found him to be a “smart man” and a “historian” who “wanted normal relations with the United States, but not at the expense of the accomplishments of the revolution.”

The candidates said they disagreed with Lee’s sentiments toward Castro and argued that the views of their donors are not necessarily representative of their own views, although demands that candidates return money from unsavory or controversial figures have already been an issue in the race for District 26.”

After years of saying he would never run for any political office, radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh is now open to the possibility, even if it’s the White House.

“I’m not flat-out saying no,” Limbaugh said in the final moments of his Wednesday broadcast when a caller urged him to seek the presidency once President Donald Trump has completed his service to the nation.

“I am deeply flattered,” Limbaugh said of the suggestion. “Before Trump, it would not have been possible.”

Limbaugh was acknowledging that Trump has pushed back so well against his political opponents, including the media, it has opened the door for a conservative such as himself to consider the idea.

“I’ve been speaking 15 hours a week for 30 years,” Limbaugh, noting there could be plenty of fodder for opposition research that could be used against him, such as his use of the word “Feminazi” to describe militant feminists.

Limbaugh said most members of the media don’t even try to understand who Trump is or why people support him.

“They’re still on this quest to kill Trump as a human being … that he’s absolute human debris and has no business being alive.”

He said the media had little understanding or respect for their viewers, who happen to vote.

“All they’re doing is thinking you’re stupid and dumb and dangerous,” Limbaugh explained. “It really is a case study in watching these elitists.”

On the eve of Thanksgiving, Limbaugh thanked his audience for making him such a success, saying: “To this day, I am still so appreciative of all of the great things you have made possible for me and my family, and there’s no way of repaying it all.”

“Being an American is a treasure.”

HUGE Sports Star Arrested On Attempted Murder Charge – Allegations Are Extremely Disturbing

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Daily Caller

UFC star Arnold Berdon was arrested and charged with the attempted murder of his wife and fellow fighter, Rachael Ostovich.

Ostovich was hospitalized Sunday after the alleged beating, and now it looks like the police have taken the next step in their criminal investigation.

TMZ reported the following late Tuesday night:

Cops in Honolulu opened a domestic violence investigation earlier this week … and now police officials tell us 27-year-old Arnold Berdon — Ostovich’s husband and father of her child — was arrested Tuesday evening on suspicion of second-degree attempted murder.

Berdon — a fighter himself who holds a 7-2 record — is still in custody at the Honolulu PD main station.

He has not yet appeared before a judge … where bail could be set.

It seemed like this was bound to happen given the reporting TMZ has been doing over these past couple of days. Yesterday, Ostovich got a restraining order until May 18, 2019, and now, her husband has been taken into custody on an extremely serious charge.

According to the same TMZ report, he could get up to life in prison if he’s convicted. The extent of Ostovich’s injuries still aren’t public yet, but it had been reported that there are broken bones in her face.

She also had an Instagram post early Wednesday morning that seemed to appear to be her asking for prayers.All the way around, this is just a terrible situation. Ostovich is a rising star that was supposed to fight Paige VanZant January 19. Obviously, that’s not going to happen anymore.

At this point, she should just hope to get healthy and let the justice system handle everything else.
