Rep. Al Green fears Trump 'will get re-elected' if he's not impeached
By Joseph A. Wulfsohn | Fox News
Karl Rove says that there is an ongoing struggle between House committee chairmen and Democratic leadership over whether or not to proceed with impeachment hearings.
Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, one of the first lawmakers who called for President Trump's impeachment, expressed his fears on Saturday that if Democrats don't pursue his ousting, Trump "will get re-elected."
Green was asked on MSNBC about how unpopular impeachment was among voters. MSNBC correspondent Phillip Mena pressed him with recent polling numbers from Quinnipiac showing 66 percent of voters were against impeachment -- including 38 percent of Democrats and 70 percent of independents.
"Are you concerned that impeachment talk may actually help the president's re-election?" Mena asked.
"I'm concerned that if we don't impeach the president, he will get re-elected," Green responded.
President Trump reacted to Green's remarks on Twitter, calling them "sad!"
If Trump serves two terms I hope it's in jail
Where's my diary, for once Fox got it right.
Bottom line, the left will never win as long as they oppose The 2nd Amendment.
Colorado students walk out of school shooting vigil after politicians take the mic

Colorado students walk out of school shooting vigil
Students who survived a mass shooting at a suburban Denver school walked out of a vigil for a slain student in anger and tears.
Students in Colorado stormed out of a vigil Wednesday night for the victims of this week’s school shooting at STEM School Highlands Ranch after two Democratic politicians took the stage and called for gun control, according to local news reports.
The two Democrats who spoke at the vigil were Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet, who is running for president, and Rep. Jason Crow, whose congressional district includes STEM.
“STEM School students walked out of a vigil tonight after @RepJasonCrow & @SenatorBennet spoke,” tweeted Kyle Clark, an anchor with 9NEWS in Denver. “Students said their grief was being politicized. They later returned, took the mic, and some said they didn't want to be used to promote gun control.”
About 2,000 people packed a high school gym Wednesday night to remember 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo, who was shot and killed trying to tackle one of the shooters at STEM School Highlands Ranch on Tuesday.
Authorities have credited Castillo and two classmates with stopping the attack. Eight others were injured in the shooting.
According to the Denver Post, some of the students who walked out of the vigil on Wednesday night were chanting “mental health.”
The Associated Press contributed to this report.
You spelled "the Right" wrong.
Not wanting to listen to more drivel is not prohibiting anyone from saying what they want. Who in the world wants to listen to proposals to arm the teachers. Oh yeah, brilliant. We need more guns and more accidental shootings.
Trump campaign raising big bucks from women
By Sally Persons | Fox News
President's backers say new fundraising numbers reflect Trump agenda's appeal to women
According to the FEC, 10,375 women donated more than $200 to President Trump's reelection campaign in the first quarter -- more than any of the Democratic 2020 presidential candidates; Kevin Corke reports from the White House.
President Trump’s early fundraising numbers show he not only has a stockpile of cash -- raising over $30 million in the first quarter -- but is doing particularly well among one donor demographic: women.
According to a recently released analysis from the Center for Responsive Politics, 45 percent of Trump’s donations during the fundraising period came from women.
That would be the third-highest percentage among all 2020 candidates. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., took the top spot with 52 percent of donations coming from female donors and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., came in second with 49 percent of her donations coming from women. CRP analyzed data for itemized donations over $200.
TRUMP CAMPAIGN ACCUSES PELOSI OF 'WARRANTLESS FEAR MONGERING' WITH 2020 ELECTION WARNING
“He talks about women just like he would talk to a typical American voter,” said Kayleigh McEnany, press secretary for the 2020 Trump campaign. “Democrats pander to women. President Trump acts for women and speaks to women.”
The campaign also points out that Trump reported more female donors than any other candidate -- with 10,329 women donating to his campaign, followed by Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., with 3,850 donors and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., with 3,271 donors.
“The results of the Trump economy, including near record-low unemployment for women – translates into enthusiasm, donations, and ultimately, votes,” Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel in a statement. “Just as President Trump has delivered on his promises, women voters will be an integral part of President Trump’s successful re-election in 2020.”
Trump, at a rally in Panama City Beach, Fla., on Wednesday, touted the economy as a top reason for that support.
“The women's unemployment rate is the lowest in more than 65 years and soon will be a record low,” he said among cheers from the crowd.
Beyond economic issues, women at the rally who supported Trump in 2016 told Fox News that the top issue on their minds heading into 2020 is immigration. And they like the president’s tough approach.
“I think I like the fact that he's kind of out there, kind of wild, and he's not afraid to address the issues,” said Irene Fowlas. “He's not afraid to be for opposition. He knows how to address issues head on.”
Teresa Graham said she'd like to see Congress – and especially other Republicans – support the president more on this topic.
“I think that Congress needs to do something,” she said. “They need to support our president and so do the Republicans. ... I'm sick of them not supporting him. He's up here trying to do everything all by himself. It's not fair.”
But Republicans aren’t worried. They say that even with the historic number of female candidates on the other side -- and Biden’s entrance into the race -- they feel confident women will be swayed by the president’s record.
“What matters is qualification, and a field of socialists is sure to lose against the president,” said McEnany. “That would include Joe Biden who oversaw the worst economic recovery in modern history. So we're not scared of Joe Biden the socialist or any of his socialist peers.”
LOL, women hate Trump. It's women who will determine the outcome of the next election.
Small donors = Real Americans
Republicans double Democrats in fundraising, majority of donations from small donors
By Lukas Mikelionis | Fox News
The Republican National Committee (RNC) raised a whopping $15.9 million in April, more than double the money the Democratic National Committee managed to raise the same month.
The Democratic Party’s key body raised just $6.6 million, according to new campaign finance data, even as the party is bracing for competitive 2020 elections, with the White House, House and Senate.
The disclosures reveal that the RNC has so far amassed a massive war chest totaling $34.7 million at the end of the month, while the DNC so far has $7.6 million on hand.
TRUMP CAMPAIGN RAISING BIG BUCKS FROM WOMEN
Not only Republicans are beating Democrats in total fundraising, the majority of donations to the RNC came from small donors who donated up to $200. According to the disclosures, nearly $9 million in donations came from such donors, while just over $4 million were from large donors. The rest of the fund came via other forms of contributions.
On the Democratic side, the ratio between small donors and big donors is somewhat equal, though big donors in total contributed slightly more, with the figure being $3,084,136. Small donors donated $3,065,795.
The small donations difference is particularly upsetting to the DNC as the party long had a competitive edge due to the massive fundraising tool ActBlue, while Republicans, who don’t such comparable technology, have been worried in the past about not connecting with the grassroots donors.
The RNC spent over $2 million on legal bills in April, one of the highest spending by the group in April, according to Politico. The Party also paid $294,000 on so-called “list acquisition” in a bid to improve its texting capabilities.
Oh! I hate to see a man stoop so low.
According to Quinnipiac today, 54% of voters will "definitely not" vote for him. That's a pretty steep hill to climb without a significant 3rd party candidate.
Yeah, like they said Hillary was a shoe-in last time.
Money talk$, bullshit walks.
Economic Models Show President Trump on Track for 2020 Landslide Win
By Janita Kan
March 21, 2019 Updated: March 21, 2019
Trump is on track for a 2020 landslide victory. Their forecasts are based on economic models that have successfully predicted the right presidential victors in the past.
TrendMacrolytics, a research firm that predicted Trump’s 2016 election win, unveiled their model (pdf) for the upcoming presidential election on March 15, that predicts Trump will be re-elected by a margin of 294 electoral college votes if the election were held today. It also predicted that if the Republican candidate was someone else, like Mike Pence, that person would win by 214 electoral college votes.
Donald Luskin, the chief investment officer of TrendMacrolytics, told Politico that a booming U.S. economy is the main factor behind the prediction, coupled with the historic advantage for running again as the incumbent president.
“The economy is just so damn strong right now and by all historic precedent the incumbent should run away with it,” Luskin told the news website. “I just don’t see how the blue wall could resist all that.”
According to a Gallup poll released on March 5, 56 percent of Americans approve of how the president is handling the economy, which marked a new high for Trump. Not far behind was Trump’s handling of unemployment, where he gained an approval rating of 54 percent.
Meanwhile, Trump’s overall job approval numbers were recorded at 43 percent, roughly the same numbers as Gallop’s previous February poll.
Similarly, Yale economist and election forecaster Ray Fair also predicted Trump would win re-election on the basis of a flourishing economy and the incumbency advantage. He also predicted Trump would win in 2016 but missed on the president’s share of the popular vote, according to the news website.
“Even if you have a mediocre but not great economy—and that’s more or less consensus for between now and the election—that has a Trump victory and by a not-trivial margin,” Fair told Politico. He predicted that Trump would receive 54 percent of the popular vote compared to 46 percent for Democrats.
On his website, Fair wrote, “The current case is the best possible one for the Republicans according to the equation: President running again and no negative duration effect. In this case, it takes a weak economy to have the voting equation predict the Democrats getting close to 50 percent of the two-party vote.”
Luskin told Politico that “[the economy] would have to slow a lot to still be not pretty good,” but added that a sharp move in the wrong direction could change how voters would behave.
On March 18, a new CNN poll conducted by independent research firm SSRS, revealed that 71 percent of Americans think that the country’s economy is in good shape, which the highest number since February 2001 and the best rating Trump has received during his presidency—by two points. Meanwhile, 51 percent of Americans approved of the way Trump has handled the nation’s economy.

Trump is a shoo in if only you will donate to his campaign. How much is enough to give? Give until it hurts and then give some more. You will surely be granted the astounding results that you so richly deserve.
