Meddling in Maryland

Meddling in Maryland
n the weeks leading up to the primary election, Cox received a massive boost from the Democratic Governors Association, which spent approximately $1,175,000 on ads labeling him as “too close to Trump” and “too conservative” for Maryland.

They're at it again. Democrats who have planned a strategy of meddling into GOP primaries to elevate either the most extreme or weak candidate may have now influenced the Maryland Governor's primary. Dan Cox, backed by former President Donald Trump, has won the Republican primary for governor in Maryland, according to a race called by The Associated Press.

"The Democratic Governor's Association (DGA) funneled $1.16 million into TV ads for Cox, betting that the far-right candidate would be easier for the state's Democratic candidate to beat, the New York Times  reported. 

In an  ad paid for by the DGA , the group calls Cox Trump's "hand-picked candidate," says he's "100% pro-life," and will protect second amendment rights "at all costs," — messages that likely resonated with Trump loyalists in the state. 

The DGA didn't immediately respond to Insider's requests for comment."

Far left democrats love to manipulate primaries, the GOP's as well as their own. We all remember the democrats who went out and voted for who they thought was the most least likely candidate in 2016. Now they are supporting any GOP candidate in the primaries that they think can be beaten. Here they have already put out ads presenting Cox as a pro-Trump die-hard who's anti-abortion and pro-gun rights and who wants to overturn the 2020 election results. That is what they want the election to be about.

The problem is that all these are red wave elections and the dirty d's could be the election of officials with far right views on issues ranging from abortion to "election integrity."


They think they can con ordinary Americans into forgetting about the conditions we are living under and instead vote on abstract ideological issues.

In Michigan, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is punishing Rep Meijer, one of the ten Repubs who voted in favor of impeaching Trump after Jan 6.

They do it because it's so easy.  Anybody can donate to anybody's campaign.  I think you should be a resident of the state to donate to a campaign in that state but, until we achieve significant campaign reform, which I support, this will be the norm.  This article is fake outrage, plain and simple.  Don't like it?  Get off of here and go write your Congressman.

Michigan sucks. Never should have allowed open primary voting. Democrats cross lines freely and influence Republican elections.

Democrat spending in Republican primaries in Michigan has reached insane levels. This is after they had the top 3 Republican governor candidates disqualified for signatures.

A state elections panel on Thursday deadlocked 2-2 on whether five Republican candidates for governor should be barred from the August primary ballot because they each submitted too many fraudulent signatures, and an official said the effect of the vote is to disqualify the candidates.

The two Republican members — Chairman Norman Shinkle and Tony Daunt — wanted to put the candidates on the ballot. The two Democrats — Vice Chair Mary Ellen Gurewitz and Jeannette Bradshaw — did not.

The effect of the deadlock is that none of the five candidates will be on the ballot, said State Elections Director Jonathan Brater.

The action of the Board of State Canvassers is not the final word on the candidacies of former Detroit Police Chief James Craig, Oakland County businessman Perry Johnson, Byron Center businesswoman Donna Brandenburg, Grand Haven financial adviser Michael Markey, and Michigan State Police Capt. Mike Brown, who has already said he is withdrawing from the race.

Next up: appeals, which officials said would most likely  go directly to the Michigan Supreme Court, though candidates would also have the option of filing with the Michigan Court of Appeals.

Craig called the outcome "a travesty" and said: "We will be filing an immediate appeal in the courts."

Brater warned that time is of the essence. Ballots must be finalized by June 3 so that absentee ballots can be printed and sent to members of the military on June 18 and the general public on June 23, Brater said.

Democrats want free and open elections only if they can pick who is running on both sides.

I wouldn't count on it.

Just like the economy he touted almost daily--now it is ignored because it doesn't look too good to shout the praises of an inept President while pushing his economic agenda, only to see record highs for inflation.

Sadly, "It's the economy, stupid" has seemingly been forgotten.

They've already started. It's all about 24/7 climate change "emergency" now. Few mentions of economy, inflation, crime, baby formula, southern border crises (all worse than 4 months ago) that were all created by the Biden Administration's failed policies.

The midterm election will be a referendum on Democrats being in charge.  Rigging the election toward Trump's MAGA candidates won't change the referendum on Democrats being in charge.  That will only strengthen Trump's hold on the Republican Party.

Republicans are going to win the House; that's pretty certain.  Democrats are only ensuring that MAGA becomes the dominant political belief in the country.  Democrats did the same thing with neoliberalism and, in the end, became neoliberals.  So, how did that work out?

You know, Biden has adopted MAGA positions.  Buy America First is a MAGA sentiment.  Even the incentives to increase semiconductor manufacturing in the United States is consistent with MAGA ideas.  So, Democrats are only forcing themselves to become MAGA just as Democrats forced themselves to become neoliberals.

Their chances are better than even with Biden at 36 pct and Congress at 16 pct (or less).  People aren't real happy with the state of the country or the direction Democrats have headed the country.  

Right now Democrats are not that competitive in a 'hold your nose' election.  If voters are being forced to choose between a circus and 'more of the same' -- the circus can't be any worse that what we already have.

That's not a MAGA idea. Liberals and progressives desire progress, growth, good jobs, they support entrepreneurs, technology, diversity, they desire safe quality public educations and clean safe cities and States. Biden and Democrats haven't "adopted" MAGA positions, they've always been trying to make America an even more perfect union as our founders intended.

Then why are liberal cities some of the most disgusting places in the country?

You're right.  MAGA - Make America Great Again.  Instead liberals and progressives have adopted MAMA positions.  MAMA - Make America Miserable Again.

Liberals are neoliberals.  Liberals want a strong stock market, big 401k accounts, and for rich to become richer so they pay for everything.  Liberals have embraced the idea of 'trickle down'; they only want to be the middlemen handling the money for an unearned share.  Ask Nancy Pelosi what she thinks about insider trading on the stock market.  

Liberals are not devoted to the idea of an economy for workers.  And liberals are adamantly opposed to anything associated with America First.

Don't confuse technical and scientific progress with the political/social progressive.  What is it that the progressives want society to progress towards, what is the end desired product? 

they've always been trying to make America an even more perfect union as our founders intended.

To me an ever growing and powerful central government does not equate to a more perfect union.

In red states the GOP extemists can be any level of absurd clown they like and they will get put in office anyway. (See Marjorie Taylor Greene) .  But in purple states the likelihood is that a majority will instantly reject far right goofs. The more far right goofs running in purple states the better for the Democrats.
