New York 26 results! Democrat wins! Massive upset!

A e-mail from my friend Jack Dawsey

Many years ago, (in my first life...ha!...ha!) I was stationed in the Air Force in upstate NY, the 26th congressional district. That particular congressional district is similar to the old south's KKK and John Birch Society culture. So much in fact that only 4 democrats have held that congressional seat since 1857.

Tonight, that 26th District (in a special election to replace the Republican sex pervert that plastered his naked pictures over Craigslist), chose a Democrat. They chose a Democrat, only the 5th in 154-years, over a bat-shit crazy Republican. They chose the Democrat because the new Republican candidate vowed to support the Paul Ryan budget to eliminate Medicare.

Newt blows

Just what the Newt Gingrich’s GOP campaign for president didn’t need. First reported by

Gingrich, who represented Georgia in Congress for two decades, retired in 1999. But his wife, Callista Gingrich, was employed by the House Agriculture Committee until 2007, according to public records. She listed a “revolving charge account” at Tiffany and Company.

Zillionaire George Soros (Donald Trump business partner) speaks at Cato

The Cato Institute opened its doors to George Soros on Thursday, and he came in peace. The 35th wealthiest man in the world arrived at the libertarian think tank, evaded a question about Donald Trump from a video-camera-wielding reporter, and relaxed in a back room as a crowd gathered for his speech.

Donald Trump has lined up three New York hedge funds, including money from billionaire George Soros, to invest $160 million in his Chicago skyscraper, a key piece in perhaps the largest construction financing in the city's history, according to real estate sources and public documents.

Total Political Chaos in Wisconsin Supreme Court Race

Shades of the Madame Justice North Carolina Supreme Court Race in 06!

The race has become an unlikely proxy for the larger political disputes rocking Wisconsin and the rest of the country. Because they took public financing, the two candidates can spend no more than $400,000 each on their campaigns, but outside groups and special interests are dumping so much money into the increasingly bitter race that total spending is expected to top $5 million, according to Politico.

For example, a group calling itself “Citizens for a Strong America” is claiming in a TV ad that “”Kloppenburg is so extreme, she even put an 80-year-old farmer in jail for refusing to plant native vegetation on his farm.” But when the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Politifact team went looking for the group, allegedly based in Beaver Dam, Wisc., it found no trace of it.
