We are happy to report to you that Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders turns 36 today.
Sarah Elizabeth Huckabee Sanders is political aide by trade. Currently, she is the Deputy Press Secretary for President Donald Trump’s Administration, and she also serves as the Deputy Assistant to the President.
Sarah got her start in politics as a field coordinator for her father Mike Huckabee’s 2002 gubernatorial re-election campaign in Arkansas. She has over the years evolved into a prominent political aide serving several politicians at different point of time. She served as an Ohio field director during the presidential campaign of George W. Bush and then went on to play the role of the national political director during her father’s 2008 failed presidential campaign. The presidential run of Tim Pawlenty in 2012 also employed her as a senior advisor.
She was also the campaign manager of John Boozman in his race to the US Senate from Arkansas. She managed her father’s presidential campaign in 2016 and immediately after that was over she signed on as the senior advisor to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. While there she tackled campaigns liaison for coalitions.
She is a founding partner of the general consultation service provider ‘Second Street Strategies’ in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Here is more on Sanders Via Politico:
“To truly appreciate Sarah Huckabee Sanders, you first must appreciate what the job did to Sean Spicer. A longtime political trench fighter and Republican National Committee veteran, he combusted under the pressure of delivering Trump’s message. The job required him to lie, his answers were picked apart, and he got caught up in the infighting of the early Trump White House. “There used to be a process that everything followed, and I think that rulebook went out the door,” Spicer says. Everything in the Trump White House, he says, was harder. “You pick the variable, it’s times 10.”
Sanders did not come from Washington, or from institutional politics at all—she spent years learning from a very different rulebook. Trump was not the first charismatic, populist conservative she worked for. The other one put her on the job at age 9.
In 1992, her father, Mike Huckabee, ran his first statewide campaign, as a Republican for U.S. Senate from Arkansas. “From the time she was in elementary school, she saw politics up close and personal,” Huckabee says. “She was involved in it, everything from going with me to campaign on weekends and passing out fliers at county fairs.”
The pastor-turned-candidate would hand his daughter $5 and a stack of fliers, and tell her that once all the fliers were gone, she could treat herself to some cotton candy or a ride. That first campaign did not go well, but he came back a year later to win a special election for lieutenant governor, and then the year after that to defend his seat. It marked his third statewide campaign in three years. Sarah was 11. “She was always wanting to be in the room,” Huckabee recalls. “I can remember her standing around the kitchen table listening to Dick Morris explain crosstabs.”
Sanders wasn’t shielded from the unpleasant side of the business. “Arkansas politics were pretty brutal,” Huckabee says, recounting the personal attacks he faced in a still-Democratic state that had recently been governed by Bill Clinton. And then, there was the glare of the press. When the teenage Sarah got in a car crash, it made the papers. Huckabee, who would go on to serve as governor for a decade, thought the broadcast media was fair, but, in his view, “the print press in Arkansas were pretty slanted, and for the most part overwhelmingly pro-Democrat.”
As her friend Leslie Rutledge, a former Huckabee staffer who is now Arkansas attorney general, put it, “She lived a press briefing every single day as a child.”
Whatever came, the family rallied around the patriarch, and Sarah walked closely in his footsteps. In high school at Little Rock Central, she joined the mock trial and debate clubs, and was named secretary of the Arkansas Federation of Teenage Republicans. “We chose her because she was capable,” one member said at the time. “It just so happens that she’s also the governor’s daughter.” Then she attended his alma mater, Ouachita Baptist University, in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, and, while there, worked on his 2002 reelection campaign as a field coordinator. That year, spurred on by her dad, she also enlisted as the lead plaintiff in a voting rights case. An area judge had stripped college students of their right to vote in local elections, and Sanders signed on with the ACLU to fight the ruling. They won, freeing hundreds of students on the conservative Christian campus to vote for Mike Huckabee.
In another person, such a record might seem transparently ambitious. But that’s not what Sanders was like, says her former political science professor, Hal Bass. “She was a delight to be with, she was fun. … She smiled, she was witty,” Bass says. “I think you don’t see a lot of that in her public persona now.”
That’s quite the resume for only a 36-year-old. Who knows how much further she will go. Although I’m not sure if after being President Trump’s Press Secretary she might not end up resigning altogether since she has to deal with a man-child such as Jim Acosta from CNN on a daily basis and other people from the press who’s the only goal is to stop President Trump’s agenda at every corner instead of just doing what they are supposed to do, report the news.
After Major Upset In Texas Election, The 2018 Wave Is Confirmed
So much for the so-called “Blue Wave” in the November midterms!
So it seems like the scheme the left had of planting illegal immigrants in dark red strongholds all over America in the hopes of turning the whole nation into a far left socialist cesspool, like Cuba or Venezuela, is starting to show signs of failure.
100 Percent FedUp reported that earlier this week Democrats all over the nation, along with their complicit mainstream media and Hollywood celebrities, got what can be considered a knock out blow when Pete Flores, who is a Hispanic Republican and newcomer to the world of politics, won handily in a district that has been solidly blue for 139 years.
That’s right, a Hispanic Republican took over a district that has voted Democrat for the past 139 years. Texas voters elected Flores to the Texas State Senate and in turn, flipped the district red. An event which has cemented the Republicans supermajority in the chamber ahead of the November elections.
Here is more via the Texas Tribune:
“Republican Pete Flores’ upset victory in a Democratic-friendly Texas Senate district Tuesday night has spurred GOP jubilation and Democratic soul-searching with less than two months until the November elections.
“All this talk about a ‘blue wave’? Well, the tide is out,” Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick proclaimed at Flores’ election night party in San Antonio.
“Flores beat Democrat Pete Gallego, a former U.S. representative, by 6 percentage points in the special election runoff for Senate District 19, where state Sen. Carlos Uresti, D-San Antonio, resigned earlier this year after 11 felony convictions. The win made Flores the first Hispanic Republican in the Texas Senate and grew the GOP majority there to 21 members, a key addition as the caucus heads toward November looking to retain its supermajority.
“Democrats moved quickly Tuesday night to blame Gov. Greg Abbott for scheduling the special election at a time when turnout was expected to be low and would favor his party. But they were nonetheless demoralized Wednesday, trying to figure out how they let a valuable seat flip in a district where Uresti repeatedly won re-election by double digits and that Hillary Clinton carried by 12 in 2016.
“Gallego’s campaign said that at the end of the day, it was not able to motivate its voters as much as Flores did.
“Our investment was in the grassroots and trying to increase the number of Democratic voters in the densest precincts where people hadn’t turned out and trying to cut through the clutter of all the other campaigns going on targeting November … and it proved to be a lot more difficult to get people tuned in to the fact that an incredibly important race was happening today,” Gallego strategist Christian Archer said.
“The relative enthusiasm for Flores was evident in the district’s biggest Republican counties — places like Medina County, where he routed Gallego with 80 percent of the vote. Flores’ margins in the red counties were more than enough to offset Gallego’s advantage in vote-rich Bexar County, which gave Gallego a modest 54 percent of the vote.
“Flores’ campaign said it benefited from a number of factors throughout the race, starting with the deep Democratic divide that unfolded as Gallego battled state Rep. Roland Gutierrez, D-San Antonio, ahead of the eight-way July 31 special election. Gutierrez, who won Bexar County then, never endorsed Gallego in the runoff, and on Wednesday, the two sides had different accounts of how much of an effort, if any, Gallego made to court Gutierrez.
“But Flores also had to prove himself within his own party and emerge as the consensus candidate on July 31, when two other, lesser-known Republicans were on the ballot. Flores pulled that off with just days to spare, earning late endorsements from a who’s who of top Texas Republicans, starting with U.S. Sen. John Cornyn and then Patrick, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, and Abbott.
“We knew that if we could get in the runoff, we’d have additional help because the stakes would be clear … and the value of winning would be obvious,” said Matt Mackowiak, Flores’ consultant.”
Flores is a retired game warden. He went on to defeat U.S. Representative Pete Gallego for the Senate District 19 seat after receiving support from some of the state’s most prominent politicians. Some of which were Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, and both U.S. Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz.
According to the Texas Secretary of State’s website, Flores won with a whopping 53 percent of the vote to Gallego’s 47 percent with 44,487 total ballots cast. Flores and Gallego both competed in Tuesday’s runoff after emerging from an eight-candidate field in first and second place in July’s special election to replace former Senator Carlos Uresti.
The longtime Democrat lawmaker was forced to resign his seat in June after being convicted of 11 felony charges.
Democrats Just Set Washington Swamp On Fire With Supreme Court Confession
At the very last moment on the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings for his appointment to the Supreme Court, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) produced a letter from an alleged victim who was claiming that she was sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh has ardently denied this and the whole story is just full of holes and unfounded accusations meant to stall his nomination.
Professor Christina Blasey Ford and the Democrats have caused a national outcry over their machinations here concerning an alleged incident that occurred 36 years ago while Kavanaugh and Ford were in high school. It is more than highly suspicious that this woman would show up now and with no attendant evidence or witnesses who are willing to confirm her accusation.
In fact, at least one witness is saying that this never even happened. The man identified as the witness in an alleged sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in the 1980s is claiming he has “no memory” of the incident.
“I did not ask to be involved in this matter nor did anyone ask me to be involved,” Mark Judge, a former high school friend, and classmate of Kavanaugh said in a statement Tuesday afternoon. “The only reason I’m involved is because Dr. Christine Blasey Ford remembers me as the other person in the room during the alleged assault.”
“I have no memory of the alleged incident,” Judge said in a statement. “Brett Kavanaugh and I were friends in high school but I do not recall the party described in Ford’s letter. More to the point, I never saw Brett act in the manner Dr. Ford describes.”
Ford can’t seem to remember any specifics of the incident either. She can’t recall the exact year, where it happened or even who exactly was present at the time. She also doesn’t know how she got there or how she got home and she doesn’t know who threw the party. Sounds less than credible to me.
It will also not surprise you that Ford is a Democrat who has marched against President Trump. She is also opposed to Kavanaugh on political grounds.
Sixty-five women who knew Judge Kavanaugh in high school are now speaking up for his character. They have written a letter supporting Kavanaugh to the Senate Judiciary Committee defending his character. The letter stated that Judge Kavanaugh has always “treated women with respect.”
From the Patriot Journal:
“But many on the Left do not care about these facts and have already decided that Kavanaugh is guilty.
“They are now demanding that Kavanaugh’s nomination be denied, despite the fact that in America we have a right to due process and the presumption of innocence.
“Interestingly, not all on the Left seem convinced that Ford’s story is accurate, and one prominent Democrat just outright admitted that she doesn’t know if Ford is telling the truth.
From colleague Connor Marley. Feinstein on Ford. Says Ford "is a woman that has been, I think, profoundly impacted, on this..I can't say that everything is truthful. I don't know."

“There you have it. If Senator Feinstein really thought this claim of Ford’s were true, she would have released Ford’s letter when she received it months ago.
“Instead Feinstein sat on this information and released it at the 11th hour in a desperate attempt to stop Kavanaugh from being nominated.
“Feinstein also stated that Ford “did not want to go public” with her accusation, further casting doubt on Ford’s credibility.
“For his part, Kavanaugh is stating he has never even met his accuser.”
Feinstein to Fox on Ford when asked if the accusation will impact how mbrs would vote on Kavanaugh: "I know she did not want to go public. That's why I made the letter. That was taken out of my control"

Feinstein can’t have it both ways here. On the one hand, she accuses Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, while stating that she can’t vouch for everything Ford is saying as truthful. Obviously, Feinstein knows it isn’t or would not be confessing her doubt here. Her statement did set the Washington swamp on fire though.
This is very reminiscent of the Clarence Thomas mess when he had to go through his hearings to become a Supreme Court Justice. Anita Hill accused Justice Thomas of sexual harassment during his confirmation hearing back in 1991. She claimed it happened years before that though… not decades like Ford is stretching for here. This is sheer desperation and obstructionism on the Democrats’ part.
Thomas was painted as some kind of monster back then with lies and contradictions. But it didn’t stick and Thomas is now arguably the strongest constitutional originalist on the Supreme Court.
Feinstein to Fox when asked what will happen if Ford doesn't appear Monday. "I have no say. It's all up to the Republican(s)…"

I expect Kavanaugh will be confirmed before the midterm elections. Grassley has offered a public or private hearing to Ford. At first, she refused, then she insisted on an FBI investigation and now she is demanding more witnesses. The ones I have heard are not doing her any favors but who knows who could be dredged up and convinced into saying whatever here.
Let’s hope that Ford follows Hill into disgraced obscurity. Kavanaugh does not deserve this unwarranted attack and the Democrats should be deeply ashamed over this.
