Bob Menendez is unpopular in New Jersey but still more popular than Donald Trump

Republican Bob Hugin had a tremendous uphill climb when he threw his hat in the ring against long-time Senator Bob Menendez in New Jersey. It’s a “safe seat,” after all, and despite being in a corruption trial last year, Democrats didn’t anticipate too much competition for Menendez.

They underestimated Hugin. They also underestimated the growing dislike of Menendez. In fact, the only thing they have going for them right now is that President Trump’s 33% approval rating is lower than Menendez’ 40%. Hugin supported President Trump’s campaign in 2016.

Bob Menendez’s political fight for survival

https://www.politico.com/states/new-jersey/story/2018/09/16/bob-menendezs-political-fight-for-survival-609491“It’s a single-digit race. I think, nationally, the Democrats are trying to bail him out. I think people know that Menendez is corrupt. They want change,” said Doug Steinhardt, chairman of the New Jersey Republican State Committee. “They see Bob Hugin as a sensible alternative, and he’s making a good case for himself.”

A spokesman for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee said the group has made a “six-figure” coordinated ad buy with the Menendez campaign. The North Jersey Record reported in late August the committee had spent nearly $450,000 on cable television ads to help Menendez. The DSSC didn’t do any coordinated spending with the Menendez campaign in 2012, according to Federal Election Commission records.

My Take

In many cases, having the support of the President will prove to be a good thing for candidates. That’s not the case in New Jersey. If Hugin has any chance of dethroning Menendez, he’ll have to do it by establishing himself as a free-thinker, a sensible choice for the people of New Jersey who do not like Menendez but do not want a Trump acolyte leading their state.

Exposing the truth about Republicans

Which party founded the KKK, supported slavery, and opposed civil rights and giving blacks the vote?

A recent video from Will Witt from PragerU exposes that people do not really know that much about the Republican and Democratic parties. The revelation of the facts of the matter shocked most of the people, showing that the government indoctrination system is woefully inadequate to educating the country. No matter how much money they waste.

Now that the Left is doing all they can to render the words racist and sexist meaningless, while numbing everyone to real crimes against certain minorities. It’s vitally important to correct the record on which political party began with the purpose of the abolition of slavery. The party that started the – and revived – the KKK and which party opposed civil rights and giving blacks the vote.

The three candidates who fell for Erica Thomas’s hate hoax are too gullible to be president

The three candidates who fell for Erica Thomass hate hoax are too gullible to be president

The President of the United States needs to be able to call out lies, especially when they’re told by people who may share ideological alignment. Republicans should be the first to call out Republicans when one of them is wrong, and Democrats should expect the same from their own ranks.

There’s another characteristic important for a president. They can’t be gullible, again with an emphasis on being gullible to stories coming from within one’s own tribe. There are too many false narratives in the world of American politics, so being able to see a blatant lie for what it is makes for an important presidential trait.

Georgia state representative Erica Thomas lied. She played the race card, turned it into an anti-Trump dog whistle, and then doubled down when confronted by her fellow Democrat she was trying to slander. But three Democratic candidates quickly backed her on her tall tale. None of them have retracted now that the truth is known. And no Democratic candidate has called her out for perpetrating another hate hoax.

There is real racism in America and it should be confronted. But the breathless rants of people desperately trying to emerge in the crowded Democratic field are often too quick to pass the wrong judgment when it suits their narrative. Such is the case for three reactionary and gullible candidates:

Bill de Blasio, Beto O’Rourke, and Julian Castro failed the jump-to-conclusions test, the see-through-the-lies test, and the make-everything-about-race test. It’s no surprise that their candidacies for president are failing or that they’re desperately attempting to pander to the African-American community by backing a false narrative. There was no racism involved in this incident, and most Americans had the sense to question the validity of Thomas’s outrageous claim. But in the world of Democrats who are stricken with Trump Derangement Syndrome, the only surprise is that fewer didn’t fall for it. Perhaps it was fortunate for them it happened over the weekend.

Hate hoaxers like Erica Thomas should be condemned, not embraced for their hatred. The three who were too gullible to see through her fabrications are not presidential nomination material.

The first Democratic candidate to call out Erica Thomas’s lies gets my endorsement for the party’s nomination. I still won’t vote for them next November, but at least they’ll stand out as the one honest person among two dozen race hoax enablers.

40 million new voters to be mobilized against Trump

40 million new voters to be mobilized against Trump

The Democratic election strategy for 2020 is still a work-in-progress, but that’s not stopping communist and socialist organizations from putting together voter mobilization efforts to stop President Trump from winning a second term. Their focus is on electing the Democratic nominee, whoever it may be. To do this, they are targeting reliable Democrats who normally do not vote.

Their targets are the south in states like Texas, Florida, and Arizona. Republican strategists are confident that the President will win reelection, but losing any of these states could ruin his chances.

This report by Gina Shakespeare at The Epoch Times breaks down the plans by the socialists and communists. If they are successful, a Democrat will be in the White House in 2021.
