Update on the Ted Howze hit piece – it turns out that some of the Twitter accounts Politico Hack Reporter Ally Mutnick referenced are fake. It gives color to her deliberate attempt to help the sagging Josh Harder in CA10 by reporting on “suddenly” discovered tweets that she admitted were provided to her by a paid democrat operative.
There is no doubt at all that Politico is an arm of the democrat party. Recently Politico botched a story claiming Donald Trump owes China Money. It was a lie and as of the writing of this blog they have had to edit the story twice despite face saving attempts to avoid admitting what they did. Recently, Politico also posted inaccurate information about Project Veritas.
The reporter from Politico is Ally Mutnick – quick research indicates that she came to Politico from NPR and she promotes environmental causes on her personal social media. In addition, she has written several stories overstating the democrat party’s strength in the 2020 Congressional Election Cycle.
Why then would she write an article sounding the alarm in #CA25? Two reasons – one is to help the democrats spin the loss if it happens and two a lame attempt to look objective. When you read the article she wrote, it is grotesquely biased similar to her hatchet job against Ted Howze in #CA10.
The title of the article does grab your attention: Democrats are on verge of the unthinkable: Losing a swing district in California
You only need to get in to the first paragraph for the first cheap shot from the 20-something Social Justice Warrior reporter:
Armed with a highly touted recruit and an older, less diverse electorate than in general elections, Republicans feel they are on the verge of an upset.
Yawn – the racist, ageist attack of the extreme left again. Those old white guys…
Then the young, inexperienced mouthpiece for the democrats starts casting pearls:
Private polls show the race in the state’s 25th District is within just a few points, and Democrats are already downplaying expectations for their nominee, state Assemblywoman Christy Smith, citing depressed turnout in the midst of a pandemic and the negative impact of the scandal surrounding Hill, who resigned amid allegations that she had inappropriate sexual relationships with staffers.
So, the Christy Smith for Congress campaign
sent her (ahem some anonymous source) leaked the internal polling data to ask for help spinning Tuesday’s impending results. The young, inexperienced mouthpiece dutifully started laying the groundwork for some face-saving recriminations for Christy Smith. COVID! SCANDAL! It’s not her fault.
Then the inevitable Trump bashing:
The close race is remarkable, in part, because voters in the district, which spans the northern Los Angeles suburbs, backed Hillary Clinton by 7 points two years prior. And President Donald Trump is still highly unpopular there; one Democratic survey found his favorability ratings underwater by double digits. Those same conditions could be present in several key seats that Republicans hope to flip back.
“It is not a unique district. It is similar to many of the districts that we won in the fall,” said one Democratic consultant who works on House races. “This was an anti-Trump response district, and if we’re ebbing in those districts we need to find out why. We can’t just brush it off.”
Two Trump bashes in less than 100 words of drivel. Not bad. Wait – did that democrat consultant just say “Anti-Trump sentiment” is Ebbing? Hmmm….
The electorate so far is older, less diverse and more likely to favor the GOP. Of more than 118,000 returned ballots counted as of Friday, 44 percent are from registered Republicans, and just 36 percent are from Democrats, according to Paul Mitchell, the vice president of Political Data Inc., a bipartisan company that analyzes voter data.
Omitted from the Politico article is that Paul Mitchell’s wife is a high-ranking executive with Planned Infanticide Parenthood who makes a ton of money off the industrialized abortion mill industry. No surprise that the allegedly non-partisan Paul Mitchell would take the same cheap shot as the young, inexperienced mouthpiece did.
Privately, Democrats are pessimistic about their odds. The DCCC has spent over $1 million on TV ads boosting Smith after the March 3 primary, but the cavalry of outside groups that typically drop millions in special elections has largely sat out the race.
Spin part 3, all those dark money / big money groups the democrats attack publicly but privately coordinate with are not spending money in #CA25? No Bloomberg? No Steyer? The horror of not having billionaires rage-spending millions of dollars? Did the young, inexperienced mouthpiece just publish an admission by democrat operatives and consultants that they can’t win elections without the “Citizens United” money that they publicly rail against?
The following is the entirety of the leftist hack reporter’s comments (aka the young, inexperienced mouthpiece) about Mike Garcia:
Garcia is running heavily on his bio as a former Naval aviator who returned to the district to work for Raytheon, a defense contractor.
He landed a Twitter endorsement from Trump but is also hoping to pickup independents turned off by the president. He has avoided many recent requests for media interviews, including for this story. And Democrats complain that has allowed him to avoid taking positions on key issues, including the administration’s Covid-19 response.
Bash Trump. Attack Garcia for not talking to her so she could butcher his comments like she did those of Ted Howze and of course vent her frustration because Garcia has been disciplined and not stuck his foot in his mouth like her hero Christy Smith. Someday, the young, inexperienced mouthpiece will realize that Dem leadership only want brainless idiots they can control for recruits.
But Christy Smith apologized that is supposed to make it all okay. Like Katie Hill and Joe Biden, right?
Democratic strategists believe the fall election will be more of a referendum on the president, and that the shadow of Hill’s resignation will have subsided. Private Democratic polling from December found Hill’s unfavorable rating exceeded her favorable rating by double digits, according to a source familiar with the survey.
Hill waded into the race in April with her new PAC, cutting a direct-to-camera TV ad aimed at juicing Democratic turnout. Her $200,000 expenditure caught the DCCC by surprise, according to a source familiar with spending in the race.
In an interview late last month, Hill said she believed she was still popular with Democrats in the district and hoped her familiar face would boost turnout among her party’s low-propensity voters.
“I was hoping that the race would be much easier to win, right?” she said. “And we want to be smart about how we spend the money. Do you spend it now, or do you spend it in November?”
It looks like Katie Hill is a legend in her own mind that may well be delusional. I sincerely hope she continues to actively participate in #CA25. She is on the minds of people, just ask her. Note that the young, inexperienced mouthpiece waited until the end of the story to give Katie Hill more words than Mike Garcia.
I also hope that the democrats continue with their psychotic rampage against President Trump. It is likely going to get several people in government prosecuted over their role in the Russia Did It Lie, so why not hope that the rage continues the self-destructive pattern?
The young, inexperienced mouthpiece also highlighted how the democrats in their psychotic rage are going to politicize COVID-19 even more than they already have. Somehow, they are going to make the case that it is all Trump’s fault while democrat governors, judges and mayors are arresting people.
Buried 75% of the way down in the story is this:
“Christy Smith is a horribly flawed candidate who spit in the face of Mike Garcia’s military service and the public school teachers she voted to fire,” NRCC Chairman Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) said in a statement. “These issues are going to sink her campaign next Tuesday, and they will keep her sunk in November.”
This was added in to the article only after the young, inexperienced mouthpiece had completed the mission her democrat handlers had dispatched her to do. That was to completely spin the results coming on Tuesday 5-12-2020. Politico is a joke, but despite the horrific bias of this reporter there are nuggets to be gleaned.
The bottom line – is Christy Smith and #CA25 a “Canary in the Coal mine” for the Democrat Party’s House Majority? You can make bank that this partisan leftist reporter will celebrate the great referendum against Trump (note the media never calls him President Trump – a psychological trick to de-legitimize him) should Smith Win. If she loses, you now know the talking points.
