PredictIt Takes Wagers on How Soon Scaramucci Will Be Out Of His Job

Published

on

The betting site PredictIt.org is taking bets on whether or not Anthony Scaramucci will last a month as White House communications director.

Opening bids are solid. Will Scaramucci be gone in August 2017 or earlier? Right now, you can buy yes for 22 cents or buy No for 85 cents.

Will he leave in September (buy yes for 49 cents) or October (49 cents).

 

“The Mooch” so far impressed the pro-Trump base with his introductory press conference, where he vowed his commitment to winning and blew a mocking kiss to reporters.

Then he made what he called a “rookie mistake” by calling up New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza and making disparaging comments about Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon. Scaramucci seems convinced that Priebus is leaking news — including the mundane item that former Fox News president Bill Shine and Sean Hannity were having dinner with the president. Scaramucci is also angry after his personal financial records were leaked to the press. Scaramucci said on Twitter that he will not make the “mistake” of trusting a reporter again.

President Trump, unfazed, is in Long Island talking about his efforts to stop the illegal gang MS-13.

House Republicans Stupidly Try To Cut Medicare, Social Security In Election Year

Published

on

House Republicans continue to advocate against their own political interests, pushing a new budget bill that would make grave cuts to Medicare and Social Security in this 2018 midterm election year.

While the congressional Republicans believe their bill will balance the budget in nine years, it would also inflame the many middle-aged people and senior citizens who actually vote Republican. It is unclear if House Republican leadership actually cares at all about the people who vote for them, which gives the bill some hope of passing.

ThinkAdvisor reports: “The GOP’s Budget for a Brighter American Future seeks to, over the next decade, save $5.4 trillion on mandatory programs — including Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid — and includes reconciliation instructions for 11 House authorizing committees to find at least $302 billion in deficit reduction. Reconciliation allows expedited passage of certain budgetary legislation on spending, revenues and the federal debt limit with a simple majority vote in both the House (218 votes) and Senate (51 votes). The House Budget Committee plans to start marking up the legislation on Wednesday and Thursday, and pass it out of committee.  A vote by the full House could come next week.”

Not good.

Fortunately, President Donald Trump has no plans to cut Social Security or Medicare, as he stressed on the campaign trail. Trump scored major points against his Republican opponents in the Wisconsin primary by vowing, “You’ll get your Social Security cut by Cruz or Kasich.” Trump carried that message to primary wins in New York and Indiana, sealing his win.

Paul Ryan, the collectivist, wants to cut Social Security and Medicare. In fact, he ran an entire national vice-presidential campaign on that politically disastrous premise, which was the most mind-bogglingly stupid platform in an election ever.

Ryan then turned around and passed $1 trillion-plus omnibus bills as House Speaker that fund Planned Parenthood and all kinds of other damaging or meaningless things. Why does the government seem dead-set on giving welfare benefits to illegal aliens and funding abortion, but then claiming that senior citizens who have paid into the system for years suddenly have to lose their own government checks?

Until Republicans actually get serious about cutting federal spending, their designs on Medicare and Social Security do absolutely nothing to solve our debt-ridden financial situation, they merely take money out of the pockets of people who are already getting disenfranchised by our government in every conceivable sense.

The Swamp makes no sense.

Pat Robertson: It’s Time For Congress To Put The Screws in the Justice Department

Published

on

Pat Robertson did an incredible segment on The 700 Club calling for Peter Strzok and Lisa Page to be fired from the Federal Bureau of Investigation for their conduct in running an anti-Trump operation for James Comey and Andrew McCabe, who both operated under Barack Obama as members of the White House High Value Intelligence Group.

Was Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, conspiring with this motley crew?

“Rosenstein was doing just that,” Pat Robertson says.

“It’s time for the U.S. Congress to just put the screws in the Justice Department and we are going to impeach you,” Robertson said in his segment.

Corey Stewart Polling Better than Key GOP Senate Candidates Despite Lack of Party Support

Published

on

According to a press release, a U.S. Senate Candidate from Virginia is polling strongly after winning his primary last week.

“Tim Kaine is polling exceptionally low, at 44%, for an incumbent Senator. In the same poll, I am only 11 points behind with a whopping 23% undecided,” said a press release from Corey Stewart. “That’s better than GOP Senate candidates taking on Democrats in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia – all states that voted for President Trump.”

Stewart’s release also blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Sen. Corey Gardner (R-CO), head of the GOP campaign arm for not putting their weight behind him, financially or otherwise.

“Mitch McConnell, Cory Gardner, and their gang need to stop fighting conservatives and start helping to elect us,” Stewart said. “We have the same goal, to help the greatest president in our lifetimes Make America Great Again.”

Gardner appears to have no interest in even considering support for Stewart.  According to Gardner, the National Republican Senate Committee is withholding support for Stewart:

“Sen. Cory Gardner tells me NRSC has NO plans to endorse VA Senate candidate Corey Stewart, despite Trump tweet expressing support,” tweeted CNN’s Manu Raju.  “’We have a big map, right now we are focused on Florida, North Dakota, Missouri, Indiana. I don’t see Virginia in it.’”

McConnell has yet to comment on the Stewart race.

The Republican party of Virginia, on the other hand, has been the first group to outwardly come to Stewart’s side.

“RPV, as always, is fully backing all of our nominees for office including Corey Stewart,” said John Findlay, Executive Director of RPV. “We look forward to Corey retiring Tim Kaine this Fall. Corey is fully participating in the RPV/RNC field program.”

Findlay told Big League Politics that he is “confident that if Corey and RPV are able to show that this race is competitive, the NRSC will deploy resources to our state.”
