Activism: Can You Feel The Joementum?

chairagainstwall

The DNC election is slated to happen in Atlanta this weekend.

The frontrunners are:

Keith Ellison, a black muslim from Michigan who has solid leftist credentials.

And Joe Perez, a DLC operative from the B.Clinton admin. A vote for Joe Perez is a vote for (do I really need to say it?) a second Trump term. (I won’t link to a DLC candidate. I don’t feed trolls.) (Ed. I know his name is Tom. I know what I know. I said what I said.)

Please call the members of the DNC, they’re the only ones who vote for DNC. Advocate for you preferred candidate for DNC Chair (Ellison) but most importantly advocate for the 3143 County Strategy.

Do it today or tomorrow.

It’s our last chance.

DNC Election This Weekend

Nice horse race  you got there, hate to see anything happen to it.

Nice horse race you got there, hate to see anything happen to it.

The Hill has the latest scoop:

As Democrats head to Atlanta this weekend to vote on their party’s next chair, the race to lead the Democratic National Committee chair is coming down to its two leading candidates.

Rep. Keith Ellison (Minn.) has the edge over former Labor secretary Tom Perez in The Hill’s new survey of DNC members. But while both men claim they are close to securing commitments from the majority of the 447 voting members, neither candidate is assured victory.

The Hill has identified the stances of 240 DNC members, either through their private responses to a survey circulated over the past week or from public endorsements.

Out of those who responded, Ellison leads with 105 supporters to Perez’s 57. The remaining major candidates have less than a dozen supporters each, while more than 50 DNC members remain undecided.

…and in related news, Payola Paul in his Axios email thingie tells us:

“Bernie Sanders Loyalists Are Taking Over the Democratic Party One County Office at a Time” — Wall Street Journal front-pager by Reid Epstein and Janet Hook:

 

  • “The strategy of Mr. Sanders’s followers is to infiltrate and transform the Democratic Party’s power structure, starting with the lowest-level state and county committee posts that typically draw scant attention.”
  • “[T]he broader goal is not only to pull the party to the left on policy, but also to fundamentally alter how it operates by eschewing corporate donors, shifting resources from television advertising to neighborhood organizing and stripping power from longtime party elders — including … ‘superdelegates.'”
  • “Sanders said the mobilization efforts are a legacy of his presidential campaign. ‘You have meetings where, in the old days, 20 people would show up. Now hundreds of people are showing up, in terms of competing for seats on Democratic state committees.'”

 

 

(Personally, I think this is good news. It’s the 50-state strategy brought hyper-local.)

All of which is a reminder to our readers that if you have a preference for who leads the DNC, you can use the DNC roster in the Activism Tab above and make your opinion known.

Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) tells us…

The key to keeping Trump’s Twitter habit under control, according to six former campaign officials, is to ensure that his personal media consumption includes a steady stream of praise. And when no such praise was to be found, staff would turn to friendly outlets to drum some up — and make sure it made its way to Trump’s desk.

Gawd, he’s like the little boy sending people off into the cornfield. They have to babysit Hair Führer and praise him when he only pisses on one of his shoes

RIP, Alan Colmes

Alan Colmes was 66. He is best known for being the original left opponent to Sean Hannity, where he was relentlessly pummeled by the orcs and paste eaters of the Right. He got precious little support from the Left, and it was a shame. My take on it was that Alan “took one for the team.” No one would have done well on Fox News, especially in those early days. Was he a fig leaf for Fair and Balanced? Yeah, probably, but he couldn’t have known it going into it. (We talked about it, in fact.)

In his subsequent radio show, Alan broke many national stories and was a consistent voice on the Left, often getting his subjects to say on record things that they have never said before. He was a very good interviewer.

Full Disclosure: Some of you know that I was a sometimes contributor at Alan’s Liberaland. He asked me himself to join the team. Alan was very kind to me, and I am grateful for his tutelage. I will personally miss him.

Your Daily Gohmert

Screwie Louie sends his regrets:

Thank you for your recent request to my office for a town hall meeting. Having traveled the entirety of our district so many times during my time in Congress, doing thousands of events and public appearances, …I feel confident there are very few voters who pay attention in the 1st Congressional District of Texas who don’t know exactly where I stand on the issues and why—especially regarding the issue of Obamacare. In fact, in November, over a quarter of a million people were polled, and 73.9% said they agreed with me. I made clear for the last seven years that I would do all I could to repeal Obamacare. I was one of the few who read it before I voted. 

Unfortunately, at this time there are groups from the more violent strains of the leftist ideology, some even being paid, who are preying on public town halls to wreak havoc and threaten public safety. Threats are nothing new to me and I have gotten my share as a felony judge…

…and that is why brave, brave sir Robyn, er, Screwie Louie, will not be holding any Town Hall meetings. The end.

Rainbow Chips? Naw, Starnes is crackers

Rainbow Chips? Naw, Starnes is crackers

Hey guys, it looks like it is Todd Starnes Week! Lifezette wants to know Wingnut Welfare Recipient and noted Elmer-Gantry wannabe grifter Todd Starnes’ The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again is not listed on the NYTimes best seller list!

Why are they oppressing Starnes?

Why did The New York Times slight the second best-selling nonfiction paperback book in the nation from its renowned best-sellers list?

Nielsen Bookscan ranked “The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again” by Todd Starnes the second best-selling nonfiction paperback in the nation. The book, however, was left off The New York Times best-seller list.

The book by Starnes was named to at least three other best-seller lists, including those at USA Today, Publisher’s Weekly and the Conservative Book Club. The book has also been ranked a best-seller by Amazon.

And the article goes on to list Starnes’ many accomplishments, speaking in churches and on Fox Radio and what not. And you’ll be surprised to learn that Lifezette is often mentioned in the same breath as the phrase fake news.

And you might be surprised to learn that Lifezette is a proud media property of the Ingraham Media Group. Yes, Laura Ingraham.

I think we’ve found the answer to Lifezette’s question.

Trump Silences BS Barbie!

They say in time you end up with the face you deserve.

They say in time you end up with the face you deserve.

CNN tells us…

Kellyanne Conway, once the most visible spokesperson for the Trump White House, has been sidelined from television appearances for making statements that were at odds with the administration’s official stance, White House sources told CNNMoney on Wednesday.

…Conway was “off message,” a White House source said.

…”Clearly they’re having much more of a drama-free week,” a source close to the White House said. “Having Kellyanne off television is helping them.”

…Sources believe Conway will return to television, but that the administration is enjoying a reprieve from the controversy created by her appearances.

“Trump was using her as an effective surrogate, then she started becoming ineffective,” one of the sources said. “So they’re letting the heat cool off.”

Having a spokesperson on the payroll that no one trusts is unique. Oh, wait, this is good:

Conway’s absence is also seen as a victory for White House press secretary Sean Spicer. As CNN reported last week, several sources in and outside the White House believe Conway was responsible for leaking negative stories about Spicer to the press, and making his job harder by contradicting him in interviews.

Victory for the Angry Inch! You know, one might conclude that CNN knows for a fact that it was Bullshit Barbie leaking stories about Dumb Spice being doomed.

Spicy, can you hear me?
