Rick Snyder, the governor at the heart of the Flint Water Crisis, penned an endorsement of Joe Biden. Biden’s camp promoted it. Here’s what they should have done.

Former Michigan governor, Rick Snyder — the despised republican who was at the heart of the Flint Water Crisis — just endorsed Vice President Joe Biden for President of the United States. That in and of itself is fine. Snyder can endorse whomever he chooses. Get this though: Biden’s camp bragged about it.


An Open Letter To Supporters Of Anti-Establishment Candidates

I get it. Your candidate got screwed. You saw the party collude with the media at every turn … from slimming the number of qualifying polls (which were pretty cheaty to begin with) to allocating disproportionate airtime at debates and townhalls. You saw the party break promises. I get it. You don’t want to support the DNC anymore and you want them to know you’re done.

I implore you to stay though. Just a little bit longer.

The elites within the DNC would like nothing more than for you to leave after you cast your vote, because they know that…


…And Managed To Leave Every Good Thing I Wrote About Her Out Of His Post. Here’s what happened, and why it matters.

On February 21st, I received an email from “Democratic Primary Tracker 2020.” It asked who I was voting for. My options were: Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, and Joe Biden.

I replied to the email factually, “I will be voting for Tulsi Gabbard, whom you neglect to mention.”

I received an email back from Evan. It was warm and cordial. This is what Evan from Democratic Primary Tracker 2020 wrote to me:


“Press Nine To Hear More Candidate Names”

The influence of polls is enormous for something that is intended to measure public opinion … not influence it. As we head into the first caucus, there is no justification for polls that include limitations like a robot pollster asking a person on a landline to “Press 9 to hear more candidate names.”

The new Emerson Poll out of New Hampshire is being cited all over the internet. This 657-respondent poll weights its results by age, education, gender and even the mode of the interview. People either took the survey by landline or on a computer.

Somehow it’s perfectly acceptable

In 2016, the #ImWithHer crowd spoke of how wonderful it would be for our little girls to have a strong role model, proving that they can grow up to be anything, including the President of the United States. I would love to see a woman president, but the former Secretary of State was certainly not the role model I wanted for the little girls of our nation.

It’s debate night hosted by CNN just ahead of Super Tuesday. CNN has just broke the news of a year-old private conversation between Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren that had no witnesses in which Bernie supposedly tells Warren that a woman can’t win the presidency. On stage, CNN asks Bernie why he told Warren that a woman can’t be president. Bernie says that he didn’t say that. CNN asks Elizabeth how she felt when Bernie said a woman can’t be president, ignoring Bernie’s answer entirely. Elizabeth pretends she’s too big of a person to get into it. The debate ends…


Apparently the elite would rather Gabbard use vendors they have known and used for years.

In the latest in a string of smear attacks against a woman the media pretends is “no real competition,” Gabbard’s campaign integrity was recently put under the microscope for having the audacity to purchase internet advertising and consulting services from someone the political elite have never worked with.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard’s presidential campaign purchased services from Northwest Digital, a web design and internet marketing firm that hasn’t worked with other campaigns before.

Please, let’s be very clear: Gabbard’s campaign isn’t accused of spending “too much money” on internet marketing. (This year, just over $250K was paid to Northwest Digital for…

Though I supported Senator Sanders in 2016 and Congresswoman Gabbard in this race, I know that I would have felt comfortable with Vice President Biden as my President. During the last two years of his voting history in Congress, Joe Biden’s ACLU score for siding with conservatives was a perfect zero.

Yet, a Biden presidency seems unlikely, even if a Biden nomination seems possible. See, all signs point towards the Democratic establishment using this man’s name recognition so that they can handpick the POTUS after the National Convention. …

The most recent qualifying poll used by the DNC to determine inclusion into the fall debates has methodology examining and weighting for a respondent’s “race.” You know … to make sure that the sample best represents the population.

The publicly released survey from CNN weighted respondents by race as either “white” or “non-white.” This is a poll approved as a qualifying poll for the party that is supposed to embrace and respect diversity.

White or non-white. You know, diversity.

You can find the details on the methodology on page 6 of the release. Here’s an excerpt:

“All respondents were asked…

Kim Iversen in “Is The DNC RIGGING The Primary Against Tulsi Gabbard and Others?” video 8/18/19

At the time of this writing, Kim Iversen’s video entitled “Is The DNC RIGGING The Primary Against Tulsi Gabbard and Others?” has nearly 40K views. Kim asserts that she believes the DNC is rigging our election again. Kim’s right, but it’s even easier to point fingers when even more complimentary facts are considered. These additional facts indicate only two possibilities: Journalistic negligence or collusion on the part of several mainstream media organizations.

Several media organizations were tasked with conducting and publishing polls to qualify candidates for the September debates simply. …
