Amy McGrath is too far to the left for Kentucky... and America

The race for the House of Representatives seat for Kentucky’s 6th District is hot. The folks over at Cook Political Report said it’s one of the bellwethers that we’ll need to watch on election day to determine whether it’s a blue takeover or if Republicans are able to hold the line.

The battle between Democrat Amy McGrath and Republican Andy Barr is currently listed as a tie according to the NY Times-Siena poll from the beginning of this month. It’s not just a toss up. It’s not within the margin of error. It’s an actual tie at 44% each with 10% undecided.

Here’s some facts to help voters in Kentucky make the right decision. While national, state, and even local media tries to paint McGrath as a “common sense moderate Democrat,” she’s actually as far to the left as they get. That’s not just our opinion. Those are her own words…

Amy McGrath brings big hope for Kentucky Democrats

https://www.courier-journal.com/story/opinion/2018/10/18/amy-mcgrath-brings-hope-kentucky-democrats/1680834002/For Kentucky Democrats depressed by losses they took under Barack Obama, McGrath is this year’s big hope. Her fighter-pilot biography and national fundraising base pushed her past Lexington Mayor Jim Gray, national Democrats’ early favorite, in the May primary, and she seems to have a celebrity aura that has insulated her from one of the heaviest, harshest and falsest barrages of attack ads ever seen in a Kentucky election.

But many of the ads use McGrath’s own words against her: For unrestricted rights to abortion, calling Trump’s proposed border wall “stupid” and a self-description apparently recorded by a Republican spy in another state: “I am further left, I am more progressive, than anyone in the state of Kentucky.”

As improbable as it might have seemed a few months ago, outside money may be enough to put a hardcore leftist in one of Kentucky’s House seats. This can’t happen. It’s time to step up and vote for Andy Barr.

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?

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.
