Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, May 17, 2018

RollingStone: The magazine tells the story of Jeff Beals, a New York Democratic candidate, who describes his disheartening experience in trying to work with his party:"Beals was stunned. In signing the document, he believed he would be committing to spending three out of every four dollars he raised on ad buys. Essentially, he was being instructed to kick most of his money upstairs, to what he would later only half-jokingly describe as the "campaign-industrial complex."

From the article:

"The Democrats are facing perhaps the most crucial midterm-election season in the modern, post-civil rights incarnation of the party's history. The sitting president, Donald Trump, is not just a Republican and an unprecedented new species of political monster, but recent events like the apparent outbreak of peace on the Korean Peninsula have his approval rating improbably ticking up."

So, from the perspective of the author, John Bolton has screwed the Republicans with his big fat mouth.

I know this congressional district (NY #19). John Faso holds the seat now, and he's got to go. I have seen ads on TV for one of Beals' primary opponents, Antonio Delgado, and they are pretty good.

FTA: "Dispirited, he went back to his family farm in Putnam County, New York, and ended up teaching history in nearby Woodstock for a meager salary. "It's pretty much impossible to even make a significant paycheck in the U.S. anymore without being involved in some form of criminal enterprise," he quips, referring to the jobs he'd turned down."

No kidding.

Duh the Democratic Elite still run the party and to hell with everyone else. I've said so on numerous occasions right here at the Retort.

#4 and your still right... the only thing that as changed is the long time democratic voters... less and less are voting for a straight party ticket. The Democratic Party Elite has a very high disregard for the American voter. It's pretty obvious they are turning their backs to the middle class and are betting their future with giving voting rights to imported illegal aliens.

Nothing will change until Party Leadership changes.

They can blame the Russians all they want but they really should be looking into a mirror.

Totally unrelated matters. BOTH are true. Democratic leadership is corrupt AND trump colluded with the russians.

One being true doesn't make the other go away.

There is just as much evidence that Obama was born in Kenya as there is that Trump colluded with the Russians.

And the Steele Dossier proves that the DNC and Clinton campaign succeeded, which is why Little Hands Jr.'s pathetic attempts at getting "kompromat" will never form the basis of charges by Mueller.

I think it depends on what Team Trump promised and delivered on in return.
