Detroit-based musician Kid Rock appears to have launched a campaign to run for Senate in 2018.

Kid Rock took to Twitter on Wednesday to verify that a new website, KidRockForSenate.com, is legitimate. The website reads, “are you scared?” along with a photo of the rocker next to a stuffed deer. The site also links to a web store to buy campaign merchandise.
The Macomb County musician, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, added that a big announcement was soon to come.
“Stay tuned, I will have a major announcement in the near future,” Kid Rock tweeted.
The Michigan Republican Party has previously hinted that they were seeking to draft Kid Rock to challenge Senator Debbie Stabenow in 2018, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Kid Rock had originally endorsed Ben Carson in the Republican primaries, but quickly shifted to support the Trump campaign.
“My feeling: Let the motherf*cking business guy run it like a f*cking business,” Kid Rock told Rolling Stone during an interview in February, 2016. “I’m digging Trump. I feel like a lot of people, whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, feel like if you get Hillary or Bernie, or you get Rubio or Cruz or whoever, there’s going to be the same sh*t.”
The ‘Bawitdaba’ singer visited the White House in April along with Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent. The group made waves when they mockingly posed in front of a portrait of Hillary Clinton.
In December, Kid Rock began selling red hats in his merch store that said, “Make America Badass Again” — a play on Trump’s iconic “Make America Great Again” hats. He also sold shirts that read “GOD GUNS & TRUMP,” and one which showed the electoral map and labeled the red areas as “America” and the blue as “Dumbfuckistan.”

Another shirt in his highly political merch store reads “_onald Trump,” then adds, “The ‘D’ is missing because it’s in every hater’s mouth.”

Week After U.S. Senate Nomination, Virginia Delegation Silent on Corey Stewart
A full week after Corey Stewart won the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate in Virginia, earning the right to take on incumbent Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), elected officials at the highest level of the Virginia GOP have failed to announce their support for the candidate.
In fact, they have actively avoided the question, and predictably, Democrats have seized on the opportunity to make them look foolish.
GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock (VA-10) dodged American Bridge’s questions a few days ago:

Big League Politics reached out to Comstock personally, and to her office. Neither returned a request for comment.
Alleged Republican Rep. Scott Taylor (VA-02) would not talk either:
— American Bridge (@American_Bridge) June 13, 2018
“Reach out to my office,” Taylor said.
Big League Politics did just that. Timothys Foster, Talyor’s spokesman, did not return our email request for comment.
Republican Rep. Dave Brat failed to express support for Stewart too, though he came close.
— American Bridge (@American_Bridge) June 13, 2018
“Judeo-Christian values, that’s what I’m running on,” said Brat. “I’ll support anyone who shares those values.”
Brat did not respond to Big League Politics’ request for comment either.
Stewart was embroiled in controversy during his primary run after the neo-liberal website Daily Wire ran a dishonest hit piece on him, claiming that he was an anti-Semite. There is no proof to support the allegation, other than Stewart’s support for Paul Nehlan, who made anti-semitic remarks. At the time of the questionable comments, Nehlan had the support of most of the GOP. He has since wholly denounced by the Stewart and the rest of the party.
For their part, the Republican Party of Virginia expressed support for Stewart via Twitter. When Stewart appeared on CNN for an interview with host Chris Cuomo, the liberal anchor tried to peg Stewart as a racist. Stewart replied by pointing out that Cuomo’s family has long been tied to anti-Semitism.
.@ChrisCuomo Oh and your brother, again NY GOV, publicly made fun of Jews like two months ago but, according to you, there is totally no racism or Antisemitism on the left side of the isle correct? https://t.co/kznowavkKK

Former RPV executive Shaun Kenney denounced the party’s support.
“It’s not just eccentric, it’s offensive,” he said. “In a previous era, had a member of RPV staff issued comments like that, I would have fired them on the spot.”
The morally superior virtue-signaling will get the Virginia GOP nowhere. Making false allegations of racism is a decades-old strategy used by Democrats against Republicans. They make the same claims against nearly every GOP candidate running for an important office.
But the establishment GOP, no matter how many times the Democrats have played the race card, still have not figured out the left’s tricks.
It is time to stand with Corey Stewart. Anything less is de facto support for Hillary Clinton sycophant Kaine, a hard-leftist who has failed Virginians in his tenure as a Senator.
Disgraced FBI Agent Strozk Willing to Testify Before House Judiciary Committee
A disgraced FBI agent who promised his colleagues that he “will stop” President Donald J. Trump from being elected is willing to testify before the House Judiciary Committee, according to a letter sent by his attorney Sunday.
According to the letter that was obtained by CNN, Aitan Goelman, lawyer for FBI agent Peter Strzok, says that House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte’s pursuit of a subpoena to compel Strzok to testify is “wholly unnecessary.”
Strzok “has been fully cooperative with the DOJ Office of Inspector General” and “intends to voluntarily appear and testify before [the House Judiciary] committee and any other Congressional committee that invites him.”
The recently released Inspector General’s report brought to light more anti-Trump text messages between Strzok and his lover, fellow agent Lisa Page. Both were terrified of a Trump presidency and apparently willing to try to stop it.
Rep. Mark Meadows said that this information was withheld from Congress — clearly by deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein and others.
This proves definitively what observers already know: James Comey’s FBI was weaponized against Trump in order to help Hillary Clinton win the election. Clinton was already the Democratic nominee when the following exchange occurred, courtesy of Thursday’s Inspector General report by Michael Horowitz. The conversation occurred on August 8, 2016:
“Lisa Page: [Trump is] not ever going to become President, right? Right?!
Strzok: No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.””
BLP Passage Ends.
Strzok also rigged the warrant of disgraced former Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop to protect Hillary Clinton from the damaging information it contained.
“On October 29, 2016 Strzok broke FBI policy and emailed a sealed draft warrant for the Weiner emails to his personal email, ” former FBI Special Surveillance Group member Chuck Marler told Big League Politics. “Obviously he wanted to work on the draft out of view of the FBI and most likely allow someone else to view it for their input. What did he put in the warrant that was filed the following day”
Strzok appears willing to testify before the Committee without immunity and without invoking his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.
Oversized: Rosie O’Donnell Makes Potentially Illegal Campaign Donations
According to a New York Post analysis of campaign filings, Rosie O’Donnell made illegally oversized donations to five federal Democrat candidates.
“Nothing nefarious,” the washed up comedian and Donald Trump critic said. “I was not choosing to over donate.”
But O’Donnell regularly broke the Federal Election Commission’s rules that limit donations to $2,700 per candidate per election campaign. The limit is applies separately to primaries, run-offs, and general elections, with each considered a new race.
“If 2700 is the cut off — [candidates] should refund the money,” she said. “I don’t look to see who I can donate most to … I just donate assuming they do not accept what is over the limit.”
But intent is not an element of the crime, and O’Donnell’s blind faith that politicians would simply return her money if she over-donated is either pathetically naive or a lie to cover for herself.
O’Donnell donated $4,700 to Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) in his race against Judge Roy Moore. Jones won the race by
She also gave $3,700 to Rep. Conor Lamb, (D-PA), $2,950 to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), $4,200 to Lauren Underwood, a current Illinois congressional candidate, and $3,450 to Omar Vaid, an outsider congressional candidate from Staten Island, NY.
“My anxiety is quelled by donating to those opposing Trump [and] his agenda — especially at night — when most of these were placed,” she said.
Don’t worry plebeians, O’Donnell quells her anxiety by throwing bundles of cash at Democrats and breaking the law. Perhaps someone at the FEC can alert her that there’s medicine for that. And people still wonder why the political left is so out of touch with the average American.
According to campaign finance lawyer Jan Witold Baran, donors are rarely fined for excess contributions and then only if they are hiding the donations from the recipients. She said that campaigns generally are not penalized for isolated contributions over a limit.
Candidates who receive excess donations are allowed simply to roll the excess funds over to their next campaign.
In effect, the law is useless as it is seldom enforced. Leave it to the D.C. swamp.
“I also maxed out to Cynthia Nixon,” O’Donnell told the Post. “And I loathe Jeannine Pirro.”
