Illinois Dem Compares Trump to Bin Laden And It Immediately Backfired Huge In His Face

Published

on

Politics is a dirty game and there are individuals who lack moral fortitude in the first place who love to brawl for power. These are people who don’t mind lying or smearing others for political gain.

One such individual is an Illinois congressional hopeful who stepped in it this week when he said President Trump had a “tremendous amount in common” with Osama bin Laden. Now, Sean Caston, a Democrat, is trying to backtrack for all he’s worth and fast. This has backfired in his face big time.

“I don’t mean to sound overly, I don’t know, hyperbolic on this,” Sean Casten originally said in a recording obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. “Trump and Osama bin Laden have a tremendous amount in common because they have both figured out how to use the bully pulpit to activate marginalized young men.”

“Every demagogue has done this, right – find a group of angry people and give them something to be angry at,” Casten continued. Those are claims that I imagine he regrets right about now. The Republican Party called the comparison “disqualifying” and it should be. Casten made the remark in February.

Travis Sterling, executive director of the Illinois Republican Party, called the remark “disrespectful, repugnant and disqualifying.” “I think it is harmful rhetoric,” Sterling said. “To compare the president to the mastermind of 9/11 and the leader of al-Qaida, it just shows how out of touch this candidate really is. This is something coming from someone who is just not prepared to hold office. It’s dangerous.”

Casten won the Democratic primary in March and will face incumbent Rep. Peter Roskam in November. He’s a “clean energy entrepreneur” who beat out six Democratic challengers in the March Democratic primary to face Roskam. Roskam is a Republican. He has represented Illinois’ 6th congressional district since 2007.

Casten is hoping a “blue wave” will give him enough momentum, and cash, to surge his campaign forward. And Democrats hope the seat will help them win control of the House. Dream on.

Roskam’s campaign spokeswoman Veronica Vera labeled the comments as “hateful, vicious language” that is “exactly the wrong approach.” It’s hard to argue with that sentiment. This guy sounds like a piece of work.

“Sean Casten has called Republicans pedophiles, likened abortion to gallbladder surgery and called Republican Party donors ‘a bunch of morons,’” Vera said in a statement to the Chicago Sun-Times. “Our communities need a solutions-oriented Representative who can bring people together to get things done.”

Casten’s campaign was sent the audio on Wednesday by the Washington Free Beacon and has chosen not to respond to a request for comment and whether he stands by the comparison. Figures.

The comment was made during a public “meet and greet” in Wheaton, Illinois. No attendees can be heard objecting to the comparison of the president and the infamous terrorist.

Casten allegedly sent out a tweet in 2017 that shares an article about the Republican National Committee’s support for beleaguered Senate candidate Roy Moore and he said, “It’s now officially the Pedophile Party. Every single GOP incumbent owns this now.” What a vile statement. The tweet has since been deleted according to Roskam’s campaign.

In July, Casten compared abortions to a “medical procedure like a gallbladder surgery,” during a debate per the Chicago Sun-Times. I personally find that reprehensible and disgusting.

Casten’s campaign has now called the bin Laden remarks “poorly chosen” but he’s continued to slam both Trump and Roskam. “Even prior to being elected, Donald Trump’s politics of disparagement and division have been straining the bonds that hold our diverse nation together. And Sean believes that Donald Trump has gone out of his way to divide Americans for his own personal gain rather than bringing us together,” the campaign said in a statement to WGN-TV.

“Not only has Peter Roskam failed to be a check on Donald Trump, both Peter Roskam and Donald Trump have failed to tackle the issue of gun violence which is what Sean was addressing,” the campaign went on to say. Boy, this guy is a walking talking point for the Democrats. There is nothing original here.

The comparison between Trump and bin Laden, the founder of al Qaeda and mastermind behind the deadly Sept. 11 terrorist attack, came during a conversation with a woman at an event in Wheaton, Illinois, who said her child was afraid to go to school because of recent mass shootings, the Free Beacon reported. Just outrageous.

Illinois’s 6th congressional district is ranked as a toss-up by Fox News. After all this, it shouldn’t even be close, but hey… it’s Illinois. They seem to have a number of issues these days.

Last year, the failed Virginia senatorial candidate Tom Perriello was also caught by the Free Beacon calling Trump’s election “a political and constitutional September 11.” He later said he regretted the comparison and apologized. I detect a trend in the Democratic Party in Illinois.

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

Published

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.”

AZ Dem Senate Candidate Kyrsten ‘Taliban’ Sinema: Stay-At-Home Moms ‘Leech Off Their Husbands’

Published

We thought her statement about not caring if Americans join the Taliban to fight would do her in, but if it doesn’t, this should!

Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema once said that stay-at-home moms are leeches, and aren’t real feminists.

I’d say goodbye to a lot of women voters, Sinema!

The Daily Wire is reporting:

Arizona Democratic senatorial candidate Kyrsten Sinema not only thought it was okay for Americans to join the Taliban, disparaged the citizens of her home state as racists, and accused former President George W. Bush of “Crowning himself King of the World for Life” and putting arsenic in the country’s water, she has made plain her contempt for stay-at-home moms.

In a 2006 interview with the Scottsdale nightlife magazine 944, Sinema went off the rails when describing stay-at-home moms, blustering, “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bulls**t. I mean, what the f*** are we really talking about here?”

Sinema was married to a BYU classmate before later divorcing him. She has no children, and is a vehement abortion rights supporter. She co-sponsored the Women’s Health Protection Act. As Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee, told the Senate Judiciary Committee:

“We find the formal title or marketing label, “Women’s Health Protection Act,” to be highly misleading. The bill is really about just one thing: stripping away from elected lawmakers the ability to provide even the most minimal protections for unborn children, at any stage of their development. The proposal is so sweeping and extreme that it would be difficult to capture its full scope in any short title. Calling it the “Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act” would be more in line with truth-in-advertising standards.

The bill would subject any law or government policy that affects the practice of abortion, even indirectly, to an array of sweeping legal tests, designed to guarantee that almost none will survive. The general rule would be that any law that specifically regulates abortion would be presumptively invalid. The same would be true of any law that is not abortion-specific but has the effect or claimed effect of reducing access to abortion. It is apparent that those who crafted this bill believe that, where abortion is involved, immediate access to abortion, at any stage of pregnancy, is the only thing that matters.”

In her little-known 2009 book, “Unite and Conquer: How to Build Coalitions That Win — And Last,” Sinema wrote, “I don’t mean that we should all of a sudden abandon our principles and adopt moral relativism. I just mean that we should consider the idea that perhaps people with views different from our own come about those ideas honestly and that those ideas aren’t inherently evil.”

Just as long as those ideas aren’t about moms raising their children the way they have for centuries, apparently.”
