Andrew Gillum is blatantly lying to Floridians Even NYT and CNN are admitting it

The leftist machine of mainstream media is caught in a Catch-22 with Andrew Gillum. On one hand, they are forced to report about how he has avoided, sidestepped, and even outright lied about the FBI corruption investigation looking into him and his connection to lobbyists. On the other hand, they really, really want him to beat the Republican running for Florida governor, Ron DeSantis.

Today’s document dump has put mainstream media outlets in the precarious situation of needing to report his lies without acknowledging that they are, indeed, bald faced lies. He’s not making it easy on them because he continues to lie about attempts by FBI agents posing as businessmen trying to win favor from him through elicit purchases on his behalf. He’s playing the smokescreen game so poorly, even the NY Times and CNN are forced to acknowledge his explanations are feeble.

New texts cast doubt on Andrew Gillum’s ‘Hamilton’ ticket explanation

https://www.cnn.com/2018/10/23/politics/andrew-gillum-texts-hamilton-corruption-investigation/index.htmlAt issue is a 2016 trip to New York, where the group saw the hit musical “Hamilton.” Gillum’s campaign has said his brother was the source for his ticket. But within the nearly 150 pages of records provided on Tuesday by Corey to ethics officials, text messages between Gillum and Corey present a murkier picture.

In a message from August 8, 2016, Corey texts Gillum saying, “Mike Miller and the crew have tickets for us for Hamilton tonight at 8pm,” then asks if Gillum can join them and notes: “I think your brother has already arrived by the way.”

I would post the NT Times story now, but their paywall means most wouldn’t be able to read it. Instead, here’s a snippet from the Miami Herald:

Undercover FBI agent gave Gillum a ticket to ‘Hamilton’ | Miami Herald

https://www.miamiherald.com/news/politics-government/state-politics/article220498735.htmlGillum has repeatedly given vague answers to questions about who paid for the New York City trip. His avoidance of a direct answer became pronounced during a Sunday debate on CNN between DeSantis and Gillum.

The new records go beyond Broadway tickets.

They show that undercover FBI agents posing as businessmen were working for months to get an out-of-state meeting with Gillum, and that Gillum appeared willing to oblige them.

This is a major blow to a campaign that has been the centerpiece of the Democrats’ push to occupy more governors’ mansion. Do the people of Florida want someone challenged by poor ethics and vast corruption running their state?

2020 hopefuls lurching leftward to appeal to radical progressive base

2020 hopefuls lurching leftward to appeal to radical progressive base

The great primary evolution is already starting. We saw it in 2016 as every Republican candidate tried to “evolve” their views to cater to the conservative base. No evolution was more striking than candidate Trump’s, who went from supporting gun bans and partial birth abortion as a younger man to being one of the most conservative candidates during the primaries.

We’re seeing it now with the Democratic candidates and potential candidates as they try to plant their ideological flags as far to the left as possible. Former Trump pollster John Mclaughlin gave his opinion on the leftward lurch of the field, focusing on Elizabeth Warren, Cory “Spartacus” Booker, and Kamala Harris. Each has attempted to paint themselves as the radical progressive the primary-voting base desires. All of them were much more moderate in the past. Warren was even a Republican in the 1990s.

The thing that makes this trend most disturbing is that the “far left” of the past is nothing compared to the radical progressivism of today’s Democratic base. By the time the primaries really heat up, most if not all will be full-blown socialists.

Pirro: Democrats putting politics over people

Pirro Democrats putting politics over people

Following President Trump’s speech to America with his compromise offer to Democrats to secure the border and end the government shutdown, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro was in rare form as she went after Democrats for instantly rejecting the proposal. Her biggest target was Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

The President has requested funds in order to build a small portion of the border wall, render humanitarian assistance, improve drug detection technology, and hire 2,750 additional border patrol agents and 75 immigration judge teams. In exchange, he’s offering three years of extended protection for DACA recipients and those with Temporary Protected Status.

Here was her response:

My Take

There are many conservatives who are against the proposal. Under normal circumstances, I would be as well. But we’re approaching a full month of the government shutdown. Enough is enough.

Will Democrats abandon Dreamers over the political ploy of the border wall

The ball is back in the Democrats’ court. Some may say it’s been there the whole time. I do. Unfortunately, most Americans have bought into the leftist media narrative that the President is forcing the government shutdown to continue by not negotiating despite clear evidence to the contrary.

Nevertheless, the President has decided to make his compromise public. He took to national television to offer three years worth of protection to Dreamers.

Trump’s immigration offer brings polarized reactions from Dems and GOP

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trumps-immigration-offer-brings-polarized-reactions-from-dems-and-gopPresident Trump’s immigration compromise package to end the partial government shutdown drew sharp reactions from Democratic and Republican lawmakers alike.

In a televised White House address Saturday, Trump offered Democrats a three-year extension of protections for 700,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, in exchange for the $5.7 billion to fund a barrier along the southern border with Mexico.

The Democrats’ responses were predictable. They don’t want any deal that includes the border wall because they realize if they can keep the wall from going forward, it harms the President’s chances for reelection in 2020.

Period.

This has never been about helping immigrants. Democrats are willing to harm both Dreamers and 800,000 Americans hurt by the shutdown in order to make the President look bad for 2020. They’re a disgrace to our nation’s government. Build the wall.
