WATCH: Kid Rock Gives Epic Senate Campaign Speech During Michigan Concert

Published

on

Kid Rock did not hold back during a campaign speech at his Grand Rapids, Michigan, concert on Wednesday night, and suggested he may also end up running for president.

The Macomb County musician, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, has not yet registered his campaign — but polls suggest that he has a real shot at winning if he does.

During his fiery speech he addressed the issue of free health insurance, saying that it is a plot for redistribution of wealth.

“I don’t believe that you should save, sacrifice, and do things by the book and then have to take care of some dead-beat, milking the system, lazy ass fucking man,” Kid Rock asserted.

The musician also took aim at irresponsible parents saying “we should not reward these women who can’t even take care of themselves but keep having kid after fucking kid,” he paused. “Of course we should help them out. I don’t want to sit here and sound like a jerk, but let’s help them out with childcare, job training to put their goddamn asses to work.”

As far as fathers, he looked into the crowd and said, “you deadbeat dads who refuse to be a man… who refuse to raise your sons up to be a good men — you ghetto-glorifiers and gangster wannabes — I say lock all you assholes up and throw away the fucking keys.”

“And if you wanna take a knee or sit during our ‘Star-Spangled Banner,’ call me a racist ’cause I’m not PC, and think you have to remind me that black lives matter. Nazis, fuckin’ bigots, and now again the KKK — I say screw all you a–holes. Stay the fuck away!” he said.

To the delight of the crowd, Kid Rock also suggested that he will one day also run for president.

“Now let’s get down to brass tacks before I hit you with this funk. Like it or not, Hillary Clinton lost and your president is Donald motherfucking Trump,” he said, as the crowd erupted in roaring cheers. “And if Kid Rock for Senate has got folks in disarray, wait ’till they hear Kid Rock for president of the U.S.A. Wouldn’t it be a sight to see President Kid Rock in Washington, D.C., standing on the oval office like a G, holding my dick, ready to address the whole country?”

The Detroit chapter of a civil rights organization called the National Action Network have been calling for his upcoming performances at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit to be cancelled and protested because of the singer’s previous use of the Confederate flag.

A July poll from Delphi Analytica found that the rocker is polling four points ahead of incumbent Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow, with 30% to her 26%, while 44% declined to answer or were undecided.

Michigan was once considered to be a solid blue state. It is now a battleground, which Bernie Sanders won in a landslide during the primaries, and President Donald Trump won in the general. This has been widely credited to the state being largely consisting of blue collar voters who feel largely forgotten and neglected by “business as usual.”

This was not the musician’s first time openly sharing his political opinions — a rare and refreshing move for celebrities holding right-wing beliefs.

As we previously reported, Ritchie was a major supporter of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

“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 shit.”

Oversized: Rosie O’Donnell Makes Potentially Illegal Campaign Donations

Published

on

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.”

Justin Amash Put Paul Ryan In Power, Now He Claims Boehner Was Better

His vote put the gavel in Paul Ryan’s hand

Published

on

While speaking to Nick Gillespie of Reason Magazine, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) stated that former House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) was better than current House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI).

Amash made this statement despite having voted for Paul Ryan’s Speaker-ship twice, both the initial vote, and for his re-election. The only Republican Congressman currently in office who has never voted for Ryan is Congressman Thomas Massie.

As a founder of the Freedom Caucus, Amash was influential in the deal that was cut with the most conservative wing of the GOP. It was widely reported that Amash’s decision to support Ryan is practically the only reason he was able to secure the gavel.

But the entire Freedom Caucus didn’t join in the deal. Amash could have chose not to vote for Ryan, but his vote ensured that Paul Ryan would be Boehner’s predecessor.

Not only did Justin Amash push Ryan to power, but gave Ryan a pass on a disastrous budget deal. Immediately before the vote for Speaker in the fall of 2015, Ryan had been the chief negotiator of the bill.

Amash has been critical of both Boehner and Ryan, getting into public spats with them both, but only voting for Ryan for Speaker.

But according to Amash, despite the fact that Boehner was more confrontational, he felt that it was preferable to being ignored, like he is under Speaker Ryan, stating:

“I would rather have the guy swearing at me and letting me have a vote than not considering me at all…Under [Ryan’s] speakership, we’ve had the fewest open amendments of any speakership. We’ve had zero….Everything has to be pre-approved by the Speaker…. Under Boehner, you could walk up…and offer an amendment as long as it was germane to the bill, you got to vote on it.”

While Amash’s statement may well be true, it is very hypocritical for him to continually vote for Speaker Ryan, likely to attempt to get on his good side, and then attack him for being worse than John Boehner was.

You can’t have it both ways, Justin.

Indiana Senate Candidate Wears MAGA Hat in Campaign Ad

He’s not afraid to MAGA.

Published

on

Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Indiana, and current Congressmen Todd Rokita went into attack mode on his two primary opponents in a new ad. He pointed out the fact that his main opponent, Rep. Luke Messer, has a history of anti-Trump statements, and how his other opponent, Mike Braun, voted Democrat until 2012.

At the end of the ad, Rokita put on Donald Trump’s signature “Make America Great Again” hat as he pledged to stand with both the President and Vice President to “drain the swamp.”

Rep. Luke Messer has been described as the “longtime nemesis” of Rep. Todd Rokita, and if that’s the case, Rokita has definitely come out on top so far.

While Rep. Messer was opposing President Donald Trump’s agenda, Rep. Rokita was standing with the President, from his Presidential campaign until now. Another ad put out by Rokita shows just a few of the anti-Trump attacks that have been propagated by Messer.

Indiana Republicans are very pro-Trump. These attacks on Messer are likely to make a big impact on his perception to voters.
