And here we go again. David Hog just can’t seem to be able to understand that his 15 minutes of fame are over so he’s back.
Activists in the great state of Texas have now raised thousands of dollars to place an anti-Ted Cruz billboard in the state right before his 2018 November reelection bid.
The Hill reported that the GoFundMe page was organized by USA Latinx. Latinx is a political group focused on supporting Democrat Latin candidates and professes to want a majority Latino. The scariest part about this organization is that they have actually raised nearly $10,000 in less than 24 hours.
Can anyone imagine what would happen if there was a PAC made to only support white candidates?
Parkland Florida school shooting survivor and gun control advocate David Hogg and Claude Taylor, the chairman of the liberal Mad Dog PAC, helped promote the effort on social media.
“President Donald Trump will be campaigning to help Sen. Ted Cruz win his re-election,” the page reads. “A rally is being planned, according to Trump ‘at the biggest stadium in Texas.’ We are planning to display the president’s own words about Cruz from 2016 on a mobile billboard, to remind Texans of the truth.”
The sign will feature a February 2016 tweet from Candidate Trump which was posted during the hard-fought GOP 2016 primaries saying Ted Cruz is an “all talk, no action” politician.
“Why would the people of Texas support Ted Cruz when he has accomplished absolutely nothing for them,” Trump’s tweet reads. “He is another all talk, no action pol!”
President Trump, two years after a fierce presidential primary battle with Cruz, has announced he will be campaigning for the senator in his bid for re-election to the Senate against Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke who thinks he’s a latino and had accused Cruz of not being one because he doesn’t speak fluent Spanish.
Last week the president tweeted out that he would be holding a “major rally” for Cruz next month. Several recent polls have shown Cruz and O’Rourke in a dead heat, though the deep-red state has not elected a Democrat to the Senate in three decades.
I will be doing a major rally for Senator Ted Cruz in October. I’m picking the biggest stadium in Texas we can find. As you know, Ted has my complete and total Endorsement. His opponent is a disaster for Texas – weak on Second Amendment, Crime, Borders, Military, and Vets!

Mad Dog PAC primarily raises money to fund anti-Republican political billboards. They have been behind a number of anti-Trump signs all over the country in recent months.
Here is more on this race via The Dallas News:
“With Beto O’Rourke fighting Ted Cruz to a draw in polls and topping him in cash, and his party itching to nab a Senate seat and end their drought in Texas, major GOP players are grappling with a possibility they haven’t faced in decades.
They may soon need to divert serious cash to Texas to protect their franchise there. For some, that would mean aiding a senator they don’t much care for.
Cruz has been warning Republicans about complacency for months, sounding the alarm that Democrats are unified and eager to use the midterms to punish President Donald Trump. He recently asked Senate colleagues — including many he antagonized during his first term — to help replenish his coffers.
With two months to go, allies are poised to pump millions into an ad blitz aimed at putting the brakes on O’Rourke’s momentum, and they’re standing by to spend even more heavily in the final two months.
“Democrat enthusiasm is at an 11. It’s unclear what Republican turnout and enthusiasm will look like,” said Jason Johnson, a senior strategist on the Cruz presidential campaign who now runs Texans Are, a pro-Cruz super PAC. “The No. 1 issue that I’ve run into is potential supporters trying to wrap their head around the reality that this is a real race.”
“It’s a real race,” he said.
Roughly $315 million has poured into Senate and House races nationwide this year from super PACs and other outside groups. Hardly any of that has come into Texas so far — just $341,000, a blip in one of the nation’s most expensive Senate races.
That’s about to change.
Republicans have gotten a series of wake-up calls in recent weeks.
O’Rourke’s midyear fundraising tally showed that he’d nearly caught up with the senator. Then came a flurry of polls showing the race was a dead heat or close to it.
A Texas Lyceum poll showed a statistical dead heat, with Cruz ahead by 41 percent to 39 percent. A Quinnipiac University Poll released the same day, Aug. 1, showed Cruz leading 49 percent to 43 percent — better, but still about half the size of his lead two months earlier in the same poll.
Not only had the race tightened; those were the closest snapshots of the contest to date.
Independent handicappers still give Cruz the edge. But Texas is on their list of Senate battlegrounds. By contrast, Gov. Greg Abbott’s lead has kept fairly steady at 20 points, a more typical cushion for Texas Republicans running statewide.
On the fundraising side, O’Rourke has proved formidable, especially for a challenger.
Technically, Cruz has raised $3 million more for the 2018 race. But that’s counting six years of donations since he won the seat in November 2012.
In the 15 months since he’d jumped into the race, O’Rourke outraised Cruz $23.1 million to $12.9 million. Midyear reports released in early July showed the challenger had raised $10.4 million in the second quarter of 2018 — more than twice as much as Cruz
“There’s no question that whenever he posted his big numbers, that started to get the attention of a lot of folks,” Johnson said.
Donors he’d courted months ago have been calling more frequently in recent days, offering to help, he said.
The sense of unease and urgency is growing in a constellation of groups that Cruz may need.
“If he’s in trouble, we have to be there for him,” said David McIntosh, president of Club for Growth and head of its super PAC.
Cruz is one of five Senate candidates endorsed by the conservative advocacy group. McIntosh said Wednesday that the super PAC plans to pour at least a seven-figure sum into ads portraying O’Rourke as part of the Washington establishment.
“Congressman O’Rourke is selling himself as a man of the people,” McIntosh said. “I think the guy’s a fraud, with the way he’s pitching himself.”
Club for Growth spent $5.6 million helping Cruz win in 2012, and put nearly $422,000 into his failed presidential bid. Donors have been checking in with McIntosh on Cruz’s race for months, and offering to step up their support if necessary.
The time has come, said McIntosh, adding, “Ted Cruz has been a champion for the issues that are important to us, and he is a symbol of what we have been fighting for for 20 years.”
Texans Are, the pro-Cruz super PAC run by Johnson, has raised $3.4 million and is about to start spending. The group has reserved $750,000 worth of TV time for September. The first volley will start airing after Labor Day.
“We’ll go up [on] Tuesday and we won’t go down before the election,” said Johnson.
He was coy about the message. Super PACs can’t coordinate with candidates. But it’s sure to track Cruz’s own push to scuff up what Johnson called O’Rourke’s “positive, rosy, feel-good” image.
“You’ve got this guy who’s presented himself as this aspirational nonpolitical figure, while the reality is that there’s nothing further from the truth,” Johnson said. “So far he’s been able to get away with that. His days are numbered in that regard.”
Libs Heads Explode Over What Trump ‘Dared’ To Say To Hurricane Victim – LOVE IT!
Now I think we can all collectively say we have now heard everything from the left.
The left wing in this country is trying to take President Trump to task over a joke. Yes, folks, a harmless joke in a situation where it was much needed.
Left wing sites are now reporting that while President Trump was surveying the storm ravaged area in North Carolina he questioned a man if the boat that had been shipwrecked behind his house was his, according to a White House pool report.
“At least you got a nice boat out of the deal,” Trump stated when the man responded that the once luxurious boat was not his. Trump then continued to say that he thought the boat was “incredible” and detailed that under the law it might now belong to the owners of the home.
So otherwise he was trying to make like out of a dire situation in order to lift the spirits of the home’s owner. Something that is wonderful to do onto itself since that person had lost everything.
Here is more on this via The Political Voice:
President Trump reportedly told a victim of Hurricane Florence on Wednesday that he “got a nice boat out of the deal”about a large yacht that had crashed ashore during the harrowing storm.
While strolling an area in North Carolina devastated by the storm, Trump questioned a man if the boat that had been shipwrecked behind his house was his, according to a White House pool report.
“At least you got a nice boat out of the deal,” Trump stated when the man responded that the once luxurious boat was not his.
Trump continued to say that he thought the boat was “incredible” and detailed that under the law it might now belong to the owners of the home.

Trump made the remarks while in New Bern, N.C, a town that was struck by Florence when it made the first landfall late last week.
Trump earlier this Wednesday informed local officials and residents in the Carolinas that his administration will stand by recovery efforts “100 percent.”
“We will be there 100 percent, and all of the folks from the federal government that are around the table, they’re confirming it,” he said during a briefing at the Marine Corps Air Station in Cherry Point, N.C. “That’s why we started early, and we’ll be here late.”
Trump arrived in New Bern in the early afternoon Wednesday before heading to South Carolina to look over the areas of the state affected by the storm.
Here’s how Americans reacted:
How long before he concludes the biggest victim of Hurricane Florence is himself?

Unbelievable. On second thought, totally believable. #45 has no sense of propriety.

Tone deaf. No sense of when jokes are appropriate and inappropriate.
— Glenn Jonas (@Docjonas) September 19, 2018
Isn’t it about time we all take a deep breath and start to see that sometimes we just need a sense of humor in order to get by? Those of us on the right have a sense of humor, if not we wouldn’t have been able to survive 8 long years of the community organizer Barack Hussein Obama as our president. But the left just can’t seem to get over the fact that Hillary Clinton lost the election to Donald Trump. So they try day after to do take out our president.
Here is a reminder from Business Insider of how a real American loving President should react under a crisis such as a hurricane:
“President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump announced on Wednesday a personal donation of $1 million to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. The money will go to twelve organizations, including the Red Cross, Salvation Army, and the ASPCA.
Hurricane Harvey, which ripped through Houston and parts of the Texas coastline, covered much of the city in water, destroying homes and displacing thousands of residents.
The Trumps visited Texas during the immediate aftermath of the storm, where they met with officials and oversaw relief work conducted by both federal agencies and volunteer groups.
The White House notes that many of the organizations the Trumps donated to were recommended by members of the White House press corps.
Here’s where the money is going:
Red Cross — $300,000
Salvation Army — $300,000
Reach Out America — $100,000
Samaritan’s Purse — $100,000
ASPCA — $25,000
Catholic Charities — $25,000
Direct Relief — $25,000
Habitat for Humanity — $25,000
Houston Humane Society — $25,000
Operation Blessing — $25,000
Portlight Inclusive Disaster Strategies — $25,000
Team Rubicon — $25,0000
Trump landed in hot water during the 2016 campaign when reporters dug into his claims that he donated $1 million to the fundraiser he held for veterans in lieu of attending a Republican debate that year. Reporters had a hard time confirming how much money has actually been distributed to veterans groups.”
Kavanaugh’s Accuser About To Cash In BIG TIME And Hasn’t Even Testified!
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by DownTrend
Christine Blasey Ford has made some serious allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that she can neither back up or or is even willing to testify about. The democrats have used these unfounded unprovable allegations in a attempt to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the high court, because they don’t have the votes to stop him. As if this story wasn’t already dumb enough, some rando has started a GoFundMe campaign and you just know liberals will pour money into this ridiculous thing.
Ford claims that Kavanaugh and a friend sexually assaulted her at a party in the 1980’s. She doesn’t know when this supposedly happened or where or how she even ended up at the party. They only witness to this alleged crime says it never happened and there are tons of inconsistencies with this vague story. She is also a registered democrat and liberal activist with a bone to pick with Kavanaugh’s family.
Ford was invited to testify before the the Senate Judiciary committee to tell her story, but she has declined. She also claims that she is now getting death threats and has had to go underground for the safety or her family.
That brings us to this silly GoFundMe campaign:
Due to death threats, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford (who uses “Dr. Blasey” professionally) and her family have had to leave their residence and arrange for private security. Let’s create a fund to cover her security expenses, to do just a bit to make it easier for women in her position to come forward despite great risks. If we raise more than Dr. Blasey needs, extra funds will go to women’s organizations and/or into an account to cover similar costs incurred in comparable situations.
The person who started this campaign doesn’t even know Ford, but felt the need to do something:
I do not know Dr. Blasey personally but will contact her via her former high school, Holton Arms, to inform her of this fundraising appeal and to make arrangements to transfer funds to Dr. Blasey.
I am a professor of law at Georgetown University who has raised money formally and informally for other causes over the years. My reason for starting this fundraiser is to make concrete the power of collective action in providing security, and therefore support, for Dr. Blasey’s willingness to contribute to a thorough, fair vetting of a nominee for Supreme Court Justice.
Fair vetting? Ford made an outrageous accusation on the eve of Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote and then refused to testify on these things she can’t provide any evidence of. That’s completely unfair and any law professor could attest to that.
Oh wait, it turns out the person who started this bullshit GoFundMe campaign really is a law professor at Georgetown Law. Here’s her bio on Women’s Media Center:
Heidi Li Feldman is Professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center, with a courtesy appointment in the Philosophy Department at Georgetown University. She has written major articles on tort law and on legal ethics. Her scholarly expertise includes the U.S. civil justice system more generally. Currently, Dr. Feldman’s scholarship focuses on how and whether U.S. cities and states can protect civil rights and strengthen civil society. Read More
