North Carolina Lt. Gov. Dan Forest won the GOP primary for Governor by a wide margin on Monday, and he will go onto challenge incumbent Democrat Gov. Roy Cooper in November.

“It’s a big night for the Forest campaign and for all the people that have worked so hard for so long,” he said during a victory speech at the N.C. Republican Party headquarters on Tuesday evening.

“Our job is to push forward with a positive campaign about what is best for the people of North Carolina,” he added.

Forest, who has been Lt. Gov since first being elected to the position in 2012, is a social conservative who gained fame for supporting the controversial 2016 “bathroom bill,” which was crafted to keep transgender perverts from accosting children in bathrooms.

“I was one of the biggest proponents of HB2 and I got the most votes of any one,” Forest said, referring to the “bathroom bill.”

“The U.S. Supreme Court, including Justice [Ruth Bader] Ginsburg, have said that women and children have the right to privacy in a bathroom,” he added. “But under the Charlotte ordinance, if a dude who claims to be a women drops his pants in a women’s locker room, there is nothing that law enforcement can do about it. It is no longer considered indecent exposure.”

Forest’s support for the legislation made him reviled in the eyes of the LGBT community and surrender-prone moderate Republicans, such as his primary challenger Rep. Holly Grange, who has vowed to support Forest after being crushed by him in Tuesday’s voting.

Democrats will hope to stop Forest by campaigning on handouts, giveaways, and enabling LGBT predators during this year’s general election.

“North Carolina Democrats are proud to once again support Governor Roy Cooper, a fighter for North Carolina families who is committed to moving our state forward,” North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin said. “Since 2016, Governor Cooper has fought for a better educated, healthier, and more prosperous North Carolina where people can have more money in their pockets and opportunities to live with purpose and abundance.

“He has prioritized raising teacher pay, expanding Medicaid, and strengthening our local economies over corporate tax cuts,” Goodwin added. “He’s offered the strong leadership and vision North Carolina deserves, and we will do everything we can to return him to the Governor’s mansion this fall.”

Forest will be tasked with stopping the state of North Carolina from “moving forward” into totalitarian socialism in November.

“Who do we want to be in North Carolina?” Forest asked. “In so many ways, I think our brightest days are yet ahead. We are blessed to live in the greatest country in the world, and we’re even doubly blessed to live in the greatest state in the greatest country in the world.

“I think our opportunity and possibility are endless,” he added.

Ilhan Omar Says She Believes Biden Committed Sexual Assault, But Will Vote For Him Anyway

Published

on

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has stated publicly that she believes Tara Reade, a former staffer for presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden who has alleged he sexually assaulted her, but will vote for Biden despite the fact that she thinks he is a predator.

“Believing survivors is consistent with my values. Yes, I endorsed against Biden and I didn’t pick him as our nominee. With that said, in this interview I did on May 6th, we talked about that and quotes aren’t always in context. I will vote for him and help him defeat Trump,” Omar wrote in a tweet attempting to express solidarity for Reade while shilling for Biden.

“We can’t fend off perceived attacks with attacks on others. This is the most important election cycle of our lifetimes and we aren’t going to have a chance if we don’t spend our energy in mobilizing and building enthusiasm against Trump. That’s the goal we should all be united on,” Omar wrote in a subsequent Twitter post.

She also talked about her stance in favor of voting for a man she believes is a sexual predator during an interview with The Sunday Times.

“There’s a lot of unsavory stuff. It is troubling, I do believe Tara Reade, I believe it’s important for us to give space for women to come forward and share their stories. It takes years and years for sexual assault survivors to come forward. Justice can be delayed but it should never be denied,” Omar said.

“If considerations [over the candidate] were something I had influence over, just candidly here, we’d probably have a different candidate,” she added – making it clear that Biden is not a candidate she finds particularly desirable.

Fellow “Squad” member Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) expressed a similar opinion that she would vote for a man she believes committed sexual assault because of her hatred for Trump.

“I reject the false choice that my party and our nominee can’t address the allegations at hand and defeat the occupant of the White House,” Pressley wrote.

Reade has come forward in recent weeks to accuse Biden of victimizing her in 1993 when he was a Senator and she worked under him:

Tara Reade, a former staffer for Joe Biden while he was serving in the Senate, filed a criminal complaint in Washington D.C. against her former boss on Saturday alleging he sexually assaulted her in 1993.

Reade attests that Biden “assaulted her in a Senate corridor, shoving his hand under her skirt and penetrating her with his fingers.” Business Insider has reported that the “statute of limitations for the alleged assault has passed,” but this troublesome news is not expected to help Biden’s presidential chances.

Reade spoke her truth to writer Katie Halper when she appeared on her podcast last month. Reade claims that she has been trying to get justice for years but her story has mostly fallen on deaf ears due to Biden being protected.

“We were alone, and it was the strangest thing,” Reade said to Halper. “There was no, like, exchange really, he just had me up against the wall. His hands were on me and underneath my clothes. And then, he went, he went down my skirt and then up inside it, and he penetrated me with his fingers…and um…He was kissing me at the same time and he was saying something to me.”

“He got finished doing what he was doing and I, how I was pulled back and he said, ‘Come on man, I heard you liked me.’ And that phrase stayed with me because I kept thinking what I might have said,” she continued. “And I can’t remember exactly if he said ‘I thought’ or if ‘I heard.’ It’s like he implied that I had done this.”

Reade’s allegations are yet to be proven by hard evidence, but this situation has certainly exposed the incredible hypocrisy of Democrats when it comes to the #MeToo movement and sexual assault claims.
