Doug Mastriano Wins Pennsylvania Republican Gubernatorial Primary

Doug Mastriano Wins Pennsylvania Republican Gubernatorial Primary

Pennsylvania state Sen. Doug Mastriano (R), endorsed by former President Donald Trump days ago, has won the state’s Republican gubernatorial primary and will face Democrat Josh Shapiro in the general election.

Mastriano, who billed himself as an anti-establishment outsider who would investigate Pennsylvania’s 2020 election results, took a large lead with election day voters and swept some counties with more than 50 percent of the vote.

Trump jumped in to back Mastriano last week while the candidate led multiple polls, some by double digits ahead of former Rep. Lou Barletta (R-PA).

Barletta had called on other Republican candidates Bill McSwain and Dave White to drop out of the race and endorse his candidacy to help consolidate support.

Mastriano faces Shapiro in the general election which takes place on November 8.

Exclusive–Trump’s ICE Chief: GOP ‘Shouldn’t Be Talking About Ukraine’ While Terrorists Exploit U.S. Border

Exclusive–Trump’s ICE Chief: GOP ‘Shouldn’t Be Talking About Ukraine’ While Terrorists Exploit U.S. Border

Thomas Homan, the former Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director, says House and Senate Republicans “shouldn’t be talking about Ukraine” while terrorists are exploiting the United States-Mexico border to enter the nation.

During an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, Homan seemingly called out the 149 House Republicans who joined House Democrats to approve $40 billion in aid for Ukraine even as the nation’s own borders remain the most porous in American history.

LISTEN: 

“They shouldn’t want to talk about the infrastructure bill. They shouldn’t be talking about a budget. They shouldn’t be talking about Ukraine,” Homan said.

“They ought to be saying, ‘You know what, we’re not going to sit down and talk to you about anything until you show us at least one thing you’re going to do to hold [Department of Homeland Security] Secretary [Alejandro Mayorkas] accountable for securing the border because it’s a huge national security issue,” he continued.

“You just need to boycott … I think that’s the way it should go,” Homan said.

The House Republicans who voted for the billions in Ukraine aid include those from GOP leadership like Reps. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Elise Stefanik (R-NY), and Steve Scalise (R-LA). Meanwhile, 57 House Republicans, including Reps. Jim Banks (R-IN), Kat Cammack (R-FL), Thomas Massie (R-KY), and Matt Rosendale (R-MT), voted against the aid.

The vote came as Mayorkas told congress last month that he was unsure if any border crossers linked to terrorism had been released into American communities as part of the Biden administration’s expansive catch and release network.

“Have any of the 42 illegal migrants on the Terrorist Watch List or No-Fly List encountered at our southwest border been released into the United States?” Mayorkas was asked by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).

“With respect to the disposition of each one, I do not know the answer to your question,” Mayorkas responded.

Since President Joe Biden took office in January 2021, 42 illegal aliens on the FBI Terrorist Watch List or No-Fly List have been apprehended at the southern border. In April 2021, two illegal aliens from Yemen arrived at the border. Both were on the Terrorism Watch List and the No-Fly List.

“They’ve arrested people from 161 countries, over 2.5 million [encountered at the border] since Joe Biden became president,” Homan said. “Add to that 700,000 got-aways … if they arrested 42 on the Terrorism Watch List, how many of the 700,000 that got into this country without being arrested are on that same list?”

Joe Biden: ‘MAGA Crowd’ the ‘Most Extreme Political Organization in History’

Joe Biden: ‘MAGA Crowd’ the ‘Most Extreme Political Organization in History’

President Joe Biden delivered a sharp political speech from the White House on Wednesday warning of the “extreme” agenda from “MAGA” Republicans.

“This MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that has existed in American history,” Biden said, referring to the Make America Great Again movement sparked by former President Donald Trump.

The president then clarified that he meant the most extreme political group in “recent” American history.

Biden repeatedly mispronounced “MAGA” as “mega” but corrected himself.

“The mega Republicans, the MAGA Republicans, excuse me, I don’t want to mispronounce it, the MAGA Republicans,” he said.

Biden answered a question from reporters about the possibility of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.

“This is about a lot more than abortion,” he said.

The president warned that Republicans might pass a law preventing “LGTBQ children” from attending public school with other children.

“Let me tell you about this ultra-MAGA agenda, it’s extreme,” Biden said.

He also suggested that the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade could mean that government could regulate couples from using birth control.

Biden spoke about Republicans during a speech in the White House trumpeting his attempt to reduce the deficit, despite spending more than $3 trillion in his first year as president.

The president repeatedly referred to former President Donald Trump without using his name, choosing instead to focus on “MAGA Republicans.”

Poll: Republican Mayra Flores Leads Democrat in Deep Blue Border District

Poll: Republican Mayra Flores Leads Democrat in Deep Blue Border District

Republican Mayra Flores is leading her Democrat opponent Dan Sanchez in the special election for Texas’s 34th congressional district, a new poll finds.

Flores’s internal polling, conducted by Ragnar Research, shows her leading with 24 percent against Sanchez at 19 percent. About 41 percent of voters in the district remain undecided.

“Republicans have a real chance to win this district for the first time ever and flip a Democrat-held seat,” pollster Chris Perkins wrote in a memo reviewed by Politico.

The poll also showed that voters in the deep blue United States-Mexico border community are turned off by President Joe Biden. About 55 percent of voters in the district disapprove of his presidency while just 41 percent approve.

Biden’s poll numbers in the region bode well for Republicans, the poll found, where Republicans lead Democrats by three percentage points in a generic ballot.

Flores’s run is significant as the congressional district has been a Democrat stronghold since its inception in 2012. For example, Democrats have won the seat with 55 to 62 percent of the vote in the last five races.

“South Texas is very conservative. We are all about God, family, and country. We’re very hardworking,” Flores told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview. “Our values align with the Republican Party. But you know, for so long, it’s the lack of education. A lot of people don’t know what the Republican Party stands for.”

For over a year, Breitbart News has chronicled the rise of Republicans in local, state, and federal elections along the United States-Mexico border, specifically in Texas. In the 2020 election, for instance, support for Trump surged in border communities that are majority Hispanic and have long been reliable Democrat strongholds.

Last year, Republican Javier Villalobos defeated a Democrat in the McAllen, Texas mayoral election. The community sits on the border and is majority Hispanic.

In interviews with the New York Times, Republicans running in elections along the border noted that a “quiet political upheaval” is coming for local, state, and federal races where they hope to flip a number of seats from Democrat to Republican.

Exclusive – J.D. Vance: Joe Biden’s ‘Propaganda Ministry’ Is About Enforcing Speech Codes on Americans

Exclusive – J.D. Vance: Joe Biden’s ‘Propaganda Ministry’ Is About Enforcing Speech Codes on Americans

J.D. Vance, the best-selling author of Hillbilly Elegy, says President Joe Biden’s “propaganda ministry,” referencing the administration’s new Disinformation Governance Board, is all about enforcing speech codes on American citizens.

Vance, whose candidacy in the Ohio Republican Senate primary race has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump, exclusively told SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily that Biden’s Disinformation Governance Board is a blatant attempt to silence Americans on social media companies controlled by a handful of billion-dollar tech corporations.

LISTEN: 

“It is petrifying and I think we should take it seriously because whether it’s Biden or the people who pull the strings, this is definitely a very serious thing,” Vance said of the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Disinformation Governance Board, announced by DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas this week.

“It’s just a clear effort to try to create a propaganda ministry that further enforces the speech codes that allow the left to dominate debate,” Vance said.

Vance said he found it “hilarious that this comes out about the same time that Elon Musk announces that he’s going to buy Twitter,” suggesting the Biden administration is worried about the Tesla founder returning the social media company to a free speech-oriented platform.

Vance also called out Nina Jankowicz, the Biden-appointed chief of his Disinformation Governance Board. Jankowicz has called herself the “Mary Poppins of Disinformation” and claimed that any online mocking of Vice President Kamala Harris is a threat to national security, among other things.

“The other thing that’s just so weird about this … these bureaucrats are all the same. It’s all the same personality types,” Vance said.

“You have this woman who’s being put in charge of it who hasn’t accomplished, as far as I can tell, really anything but she has all the fancy credentials, went to all the fancy schools, has this air of expertise even though she hasn’t actually earned it by actual accomplishment,” Vance continued.

“And it’s pretty clear that this is the sort of person, you don’t want a Ministry of Truth at all, but you don’t want a person like this running it,” he said. “And I think we’re going to see some pretty crazy stuff come out of it. I just hope Republicans grow a spine and actually fight back against what’s going on.”

Vance, a staunch supporter of using antitrust laws to break up giant tech conglomerates, said all the issues that conservatives care about from election fraud to illegal immigration are reliant on an open internet that allows free speech.

“All of this stuff is predicated on having an open public square … if you don’t have an open public square, it’s just fundamentally rigged for the left, nothing can get accomplished,” Vance said.

“This is why I always say the Big Tech issue may be the most important modern issue because it affects all the other ones,” he continued.

Vance, with Trump’s backing, is currently leading his GOP primary opponents in the Ohio Senate race. The election is on May 3.

Poll: J.D. Vance Takes the Lead in Ohio Republican U.S. Senate Primary 

Poll: J.D. Vance Takes the Lead in Ohio Republican U.S. Senate Primary 

J.D. Vance is the leading candidate in the Ohio Republican U.S. Senate primary, according to a recently released poll.

A Fox News survey found that 23 percent of Ohio Republican primary voters support Vance, which is five points ahead of the next leading candidate. Josh Mandel received 18 percent support in the latest poll, and Mike Gibbons earned 13 percent support. Ohio State Sen. Matt Dolan received 11 percent support, and Jane Timken received six percent.

However, 25 percent of GOP primary voters in Ohio remain undecided. Vance has a good chance of earning support from those undecided voters because they view him as the most likable candidate. Vance has a +14 percent net favorable rating among undecided voters. Mandel follows closely behind him with a +12 percent net favorable rating.

Of those voters who have chosen a candidate, Vance has a +29 favorable rating. The next closest favorable candidate is Dolan, who has a +21 percent favorable rating.

Vance’s 23 percent support is up by 12 points since Fox News’s last survey in March. Since the last survey, Mandel lost two percent support, and Gibbons lost nine percent. Vance’s jump in the polls can likely be attributed to his recent endorsement by former President Donald Trump.

In fact, 42 percent of primary voters said Trump’s endorsement made them more supportive of Vance. However, 23 percent of voters said it made them less supportive. An additional 27 percent said Trump’s endorsement made no difference.

Trump said Vance “is the most likely to take out the weak, but dangerous, Democrat opponent.”

“The race is obviously close, and this is clearly a case in which an endorsement has made a difference,” Fox News pollster Daron Shaw said. “With support spread out among five candidates who are pretty similar in policy terms, the bump that comes with Trump’s blessing is enough to jump Vance to the head of the pack.”

The poll, which surveyed 906 Ohio GOP primary voters, was conducted between April 20 and April 24. The poll’s margin of error is ± three percent.

Three Signs Republicans May Hammer Democrats in Midterm Landslide  

Three Signs Republicans May Hammer Democrats in Midterm Landslide  

Republicans will likely retake the House and Senate, according to polling, election experts, and Democrat rhetoric.

First: Experts

Redistricting expert and senior editor of the Cook Political Report, David Wasserman, believes Republicans will have a huge advantage in midterms based on his experience. Cook suggests 19 House seats are toss-up districts for Democrats. Many of these districts are in the Rustbelt, such as Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. This portion of the nation has been impacted by President Biden’s 40-year-high inflation and fentanyl that has streamed across the southern border. Biden has failed to secure the border from the invasion of illegal migrants.

Cook’s analysis also shows only eight Republicans are in toss-up districts. But with a wider perspective, Cook estimates only 15 Republican districts either lean Republican or are likely Republican holds. In contrast, 27 Democrat-held districts either lean that way or are likely Democrat districts. Democrats must spend precious resources holding 12 more districts than Republicans.

Second: Polling

Polling is also in favor of Republicans. Thursday polling showed Republicans heavily favored by nine points on a generic ballot (48-39 percent). The generic ballot is important because it indicates congressional Republicans have a national advantage over Democrats regardless of the candidate.

Generic polling is especially important in Senate races, where the campaigns are statewide races and garner national attention. Recent polling of individual Senate races shows Republicans doing quite well in swing states. Republicans are leading in ArizonaNew HampshireGeorgia, and Nevada.

Republicans only need to net one seat to reclaim the Senate. While they have more Senate seats to defend than Democrats, Republicans also have the benefit of campaigning against an unpopular president. Biden’s nationwide approval rating in April is 33 percent. Additional polling shows 49.9 percent of voters strongly disapprove of the president, while only 20 percent strongly approve:

Third: Democrat Rhetoric

Democrat rhetoric is another reason Republicans may win in November. The Democrat-allied establishment media, along with Democrats, have begun alerting the Washington, DC, establishment that the political tide is very unfavorable. The Associated Press warned Friday that Biden’s election strategy cannot be to only blame Republicans for the nation’s crises. “Biden’s election-year challenge: Blame GOP for nation’s woes,” the title read.

The article noted Biden’s strategy of blaming Republicans for the crises that have befallen the nation. “I mean this sincerely — name me something the national Republican Party is for,” the article reported of Biden’s recent statement at the Democratic National Committee meeting.

“It’s not my fault; blame the Republicans,” Biden has said in relation to soaring gas prices and 40-year-high inflation.

That is not the only time Biden has laid blame on someone or something else for his failures. “Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has driven up gas prices and food prices all over the world,” Biden claimed in Iowa in April. “So everything is going up. We saw it in today’s inflation data.” Biden’s claim that inflation is only a result of Putin’s actions is incorrect. Inflation was climbing well before Putin invaded Ukraine.

The economy is unlikely to correct before the midterms. Economists predict the nation has a 35 percent chance of falling into a recession between 2022 and 2023. Americans expect the nation will not economically recover before the midterms.
