Swamp Creature Peter Strzok Struts His Stuff And Shatters What’s Left Of The FBI’s Credibility

Disgraced FBI official Peter Strzok rants that he had hoped “the American population would not elect somebody demonstrating such horrible, disgusting behavior.” But WE DID NOT ELECT YOU, Mr. Strzok.

Is Strzok the face of the youthful, progressive FBI? Agent Strzok is a smirking, smug, self-satisfied, cheating swamp creature. He can’t take responsibility for his own misconduct, no wonder Strzok blames … Russia for division in America.

Bear in mind: Strzok is no lowly official; he “rose to become the Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterintelligence Division, the second-highest position in that division.”

Pray for courageous Carmen. She has two children and doesn’t know if she’ll survive to raise them. What imperils Carmen’s life? She is running for office in … Mexico.

More than 130 candidates have been killed in Mexico during a deadly election campaign leading up to general and presidential elections on Sunday.

Carmen’s husband was one of the victims, shot dead six weeks ago in broad daylight after a rally.

Now the grieving widow is running for office herself.

‘What If Democrats Win Enough Seats In Congress To Override A Presidential Veto’?

The Conor Lamb victory in Pennsylvania raises the fear that, “When the mid-terms roll round, [Democrats] would win enough seats in Congress to override a presidential veto.

Democrats far from the seats of power and from Nancy Pelosi’s orbit are looking to appeal to regular Americans, namely the Trump constituency.

* Duly, Lamb is “a former marine and federal prosecutor.” (Used to be the armed fores were squarely in the conservative camp.)

* Mr Lamb campaigned at rallies with unions, such as the steelworkers, the coalminers at a United Mine Workers.

* “Mr Lamb promised to protect pensions of union members as well as Social Security and Medicare benefits for all.”

* “Lamb was ‘a God-fearing, union-supporting, gun-owning, job-protecting, pension-defending, Social-Security-believing … sending-drug-dealers-to-jail Democrat,’ enthused Cecil Roberts, the union boss. The Democrats need more like him.”

MORE: “Conor Lamb has shown Democrats how to win in places they usually lose.”

Beware, City Slicker Republicans; The Democrats Are Running ‘Prairie Populists’ In The Dakotas

Democrats, Donald Trump, Elections, Republicans, States' Rights

The Economist: “The Democratic brand is often toxic in rural America, where it is seen as a party of coastal elites. But Western voters seem willing to pull the lever for the right kind of Democratic candidate.”

In South Dakota, where “Republicans hold overwhelming majorities in both of the state legislative chambers; and Donald Trump won nearly twice as many votes as Hillary Clinton in 2016,” the Democrats are running “country politician” and former rodeo champion Billie Sutton for governor.

Sutton, who was “was paralysed from the waist down” in a rodeo accident, identifies “The main divide in South Dakota politics” as “not between Democrats and Republicans but between urban and rural regions.”

In the general election Mr Sutton will probably face either Kristi Noem—who has spent the last seven years in Washington as the state’s sole House of Representatives member—or Marty Jackley, who has spent nearly a decade as the state’s attorney general.

For obvious reasons, these are Sutton’s “dream opponents.”

Mr Sutton is a pro-life, pro-gun, church-going Democrat, just as Heidi Heitkamp—a Democratic senator from North Dakota—supports fracking and the Keystone oil pipeline. They are less prairie populists than prairie pragmatists, focused on kitchen-table issues and connecting to individual voters rather than joining the partisan vanguard.
