Trump is the big winner in this week’s primaries!

Yes…, President Trump just keeps on winning, while the democrats and the lamestream media come out the losers…, again.

According to Doug Schoen, for Fox News, “Trump is big winner and Sessions is the big loser in Tuesday primaries, while Dems remain divided.”

He also reports that, “The President’s current chances for reelection may be stronger than national polls indicate.”

“There are two key takeaways from the outcome of Tuesday’s primaries in Alabama, Maine and Texas.”

“First, the big winner of the night was President Trump.  Several Trump-backed candidates defeated their opponents and unquestionably benefited significantly from The President’s support. The most notable of these was former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville, who defeated former senator and attorney general Jeff Sessions for the GOP nomination for a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama. Tuberville will face Democratic Sen. Doug Jones, considered a highly vulnerable incumbent.”

“Second, Democratic primary results show the party is deeply divided, complicating the Democrats’ path to winning majority control of the Senate and defeating Trump in the November election.”

“Alabama was the biggest race Tuesday and of special interest to [President] Trump. The President forced out Sessions as attorney general after Sessions recused himself from overseeing the investigation of Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election – a decision Sessions said he was required to make because he had been involved in the Trump campaign. Trump never forgave Sessions for the recusal and considered it a betrayal.”

“In his bid to regain the Senate seat he resigned to become Trump’s attorney general, Sessions faced fierce opposition from The President, who repeatedly criticized him with harsh insults and actively supported Tuberville. Trump’s endorsement clearly carried more weight with voters than Sessions’ endorsements from prominent Republicans and his former Republican Senate colleagues, including Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala.”

So, who are these other “prominent republicans who went out of their way to buck President Trump and endorse Jeff Sessions?

Michelle Malkin

And republican senators:

Jim Inhoffe (OK)

Pat Roberts (KS)

Mike Enzi (WY)

Mike Crapo (ID)

John Barrasso (WY)

Roy Blunt (MO)

John Boozman (AR)

Ron Johnson (WI)

Deb Fischer (NE)

Michelle Malkin…, you have broken my heart!  Jeff “the backstabber” Sessions?!  Really?  What could you have possibly been thinking?  I’m going to have to re-evaluate our relationship.

And my own senator, Ron Johnson!  Why would you endorse Jeff “the mole” Sessions?!

Very disappointing.

“Meanwhile, in Texas, former White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson, who was endorsed by [President] Trump, won his primary for a U.S. House seat, beating out Josh Winegarner. Winegarner was endorsed by the outgoing Republican Rep. Mac Thornberry.”

acandidates 13

“In many ways, the weight of [President] Trump’s endorsements in Alabama and Texas signals that The President’s current chances for reelection may be stronger than national polls indicate.”

Recollecting the polls and their accuracy during the 2016 presidential election, I would say this is most definitely the case.

A day or so before the primaries, I can recall the media touting that the Sessions-Tuberville race was a virtual toss-up.

Tuberville crushed Sessions, 60.7% to 39.3%.

Some kind of “toss-up,” huh?

“In several U.S. House and Senate Democratic primaries held in June, progressive challengers either defeated or came close to nearly defeating their well-funded establishment opponents.”

“Likewise, the division between the progressive and moderate factions of the party was manifest in Tuesday’s primaries.”

“Given the clear progressive insurgency within the Democratic Party across the country, there will also likely be greater pressure on the party to embrace left-leaning policies, such as defunding the police, which are unpopular with the general electorate.”

You mean most people don’t want to operate under jungle rules?

You mean most people believe that criminals should be arrested?

You mean that most people believe that other people who can’t behave in a civilized manner should be dealt with accordingly?

If that’s what you mean, well then maybe you do agree with me that these favorable polls for Sleepy Joe are seriously flawed.

It’s hard to believe the democrats believe most people in the country want the Chicago, the L.A., or the New York lifestyle of burning, looting, shooting, killing and just general lawlessness.

“Doing so could cost the Democrats the presidency, the Senate, and even their current House majority.”

We can only hope!

The only mention of these primary events by CNN is a whiney little article about Sessions and how he was mistreated by The President, and how he paid the price for being associated with President Trump somehow, even though The President firmly backed his opponent in the primary.

Only the “logic” of CNN can explain that “expert” analysis.

WINNING!

INSIDER TRADING BY SENATORS DISCOVERED!

If it looks like insider trading, sounds like insider trading, and smells like insider trading…, then it’s probably insider trading.

These politicians definitely have their privileges!

And there are many more out there who benefited from their advance knowledge…, believe me…, but these were the only ones stupid enough to get caught.

According to Dom Calicchio of Fox News, “Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California and three of her Senate colleagues reported selling off stocks worth millions of dollars in the days before the coronavirus outbreak crashed the market, according to reports.”

Hmmm, what an absolute coincidence?

“The data is listed on a U.S. Senate website containing financial disclosures from Senate members.”

“Feinstein, who serves as ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and her husband sold between $1.5 million and $6 million in stock…between Jan. 31 and Feb. 18, The New York Times reported.”

ainsiders 1

“Feinstein defended herself in a series of tweets on Friday, saying she has ‘no control’ over her assets and the stocks in question were her husband’s transactions.”

Here we go again…, deny, deny, deny…, lie, lie, lie.

‘“During my Senate career I’ve held all assets in a blind trust of which I have no control. Reports that I sold any assets are incorrect, as are reports that I was at a January 24 briefing on coronavirus, which I was unable to attend,’ she tweeted.”

‘“Under Senate rules I report my husband’s financial transactions. I have no input into his decisions. My husband in January and February sold shares of a cancer therapy company. This company is unrelated to any work on the coronavirus and the sale was unrelated to the situation.’”

Her sales were “completely unrelated” to the coronavirus situation.

Oh I get it…, “someone” just decided to sell off between $1.5 million and $6 million of her and her husband’s stock, right in the midst of a record breaking stock market for no good reason.

Sounds legit to me.

And I’m not cutting any of our Republican friends any slack either.

“Reports identified the three other senators as Richard Burr of North Carolina, Kelly Loeffler of Georgia and James Inhofe of Oklahoma, all Republicans.”

“Burr, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, used more than 30 transactions to dump between $628,000 and $1.72 million on Feb. 13, according to ProPublica.”

Senate Lawmakers Hold Media Availability After Weekly Policy Luncheons

“The report said the transactions involved a significant percentage of the senator’s holdings and took place about a week before the impact of the virus outbreak sent stock prices plunging to the point where gains made during President Trump’s term in office were largely erased.”

‘“Senator Burr filed a financial disclosure form for personal transactions made several weeks before the U.S. and financial markets showed signs of volatility due to the growing coronavirus outbreak,’ a Burr spokesperson said. ‘As the situation continues to evolve daily, he has been deeply concerned by the steep and sudden toll this pandemic is taking on our economy.’”

“On Friday, the senator tweeted an updated statement saying he relied only on ‘public news reports’ to guide his decision on the sale. Still, he said he’s asked for a Senate Ethics Committee review of his actions.”

“Burr was an author of the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act, a law that helps determine the federal response to situations such as the coronavirus outbreak, ProPublica reported. Burr’s office would not comment on what kind of information Burr might have received about coronavirus prior to his stock sales, the outlet reported.”

“[Senator] Loeffler was appointed to the Senate in December by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp after incumbent Sen. Johnny Isakson resigned because of health issues – despite allies of President Trump having urged Kemp to select Rep. Doug Collins instead.”

“Loeffler and her husband, Jeffrey Sprecher, chairman of the New York Stock Exchange, sold stock Jan. 24, the same day she sat in on a briefing from two members of Trump’s Coronavirus Task Force, The Daily Beast reported.”

“Between that day and Feb. 14, the couple sold stock worth a total between $1.2 million and $3.1 million, the report said. In addition to the sales, they also purchased stock in a maker of software that helps people work at home – just before millions of Americans were forced to leave their offices because of the outbreak, the report said.”

“Loeffler slammed the Daily Beast report as a ‘ridiculous and baseless attack’ in a pair of late-night tweets.”

‘“This is a ridiculous and baseless attack. I do not make investment decisions for my portfolio. Investment decisions are made by multiple third-party advisors without my or my husband’s knowledge or involvement,’ Loeffler wrote. ‘As confirmed in the periodic transaction report to Senate Ethics, I was informed of these purchases and sales on February 16, 2020 — three weeks after they were made.’”

“In an interview Friday with Fox News’ Ed Henry, Loeffler again said any claim of insider trading is ‘absolutely false.’”

“[Senator] Inhofe sold as much as $400,000 in stock all on Jan. 27, in companies such as PayPal, Apple and real estate company Brookfield Asset Management, The New York Times reported.”

“But in a written statement, Inhofe pushed back by saying he was not at a late January briefing and, further, does not have involvement in investment choices.”

“The statement said: ‘The New York Times allegations are completely baseless and 100 percent false. I was not at the briefing on January 24. I was meeting with pro-life kids from Oklahoma here for the March for Life and the new nominee to be U.S. Ambassador to Tanzania. I do not have any involvement in my investment decisions. In December 2018, shortly after becoming chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, I instructed my financial advisor to move me out of all stocks and into mutual funds to avoid any appearance of controversy. My advisor has been doing so faithfully since that time and I am not aware of or consulted about any transactions.’”

I really wish all four of these senators would give the rest of us a little credit for not being completely gullible and/or stupid.

This really is just another case of “the rich get richer.”

Isn’t it just so completely obvious that these individuals used knowledge, that wasn’t available to the rest of us, to advance themselves financially at the expense of everybody else?

Again…, if it looks like insider trading, sounds like insider trading, and smells like insider trading…, then it’s probably insider trading.

You can say you’re not responsible for your stocks or your money all day long, but in the end these are your stocks and it is your money, and YOU ARE responsible for it!

This whole thing stinks to high heaven, and these people need to held accountable.

But, the odds are we’ll just end up seeing another shining example of our wonderful two-tiered justice system.

We have to always remember…, that there’s this club, and we ain’t in it!
