Laura Loomer Wins Trump’s District

by Daveda Gruber

On Tuesday Laura Loomer won the Republican primary in the Florida 21st district that hosts Mar-a-Lago resort, which is now President Trump’s new official residence.

Loomer, who is 27 years old, has been banned from social media sites like Twitter and Facebook but she’s a tough challenger for anyone to face.

She won a six-way primary for the right to face Rep. Lois Frankel (D) in the general election. She also raised more than $1 million with support from Alex Jones, pardoned Trump ally Roger Stone and Florida Representative Matt Gaetz.

Early on Wednesday, Loomer won praise from President Donald Trump

Trump tweeted this:

Frankel, 72, has been seated in the Palm Beach County district for decades. It has been a Democratic stronghold. Republicans have only run a candidate in one of the four previous elections since its current boundaries were drawn in 2012. Frankel managed to beat that challenger in 2016 by just 27 points.

Loomer ran for the district in a six candidate race. She received 43%  the Republican field. She managed to get 14,500 votes. The combined Republican candidates totaled 34,000 votes.

Frankel ran against a political newcomer and received 75,000 votes, or 86% in the Democratic primary. In total 87,000 votes Democratic votes were cast.

This was only the primary. I suspect more people will be voting in November.

Decision Desk called the FL-21 for Laura Loomer at 8:02pm on August 18th, just over an hour after polls had closed:

They tweeted this:

It’s time to get a career Politian like Frankel out of office and let the conservative Loomer get things done.

Loomer is a fighter for conservative rights and will be a big asset for Florida’s 21st district, for the state and for Americans.

Roger Stone has stood for Loomer and he introduced her when she gave her acceptance speech. You can see it here:

Who’s Not Happy Roger Stone Prison Sentence Commuted?

by Daveda Gruber:

Late Friday the White House announced that President Trump had signed an Executive Grant of Clemency for Roger Stone.

Stone was sentenced to more than three years in prison. Last year he was convicted on seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress. All of the convictions were in relation to FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Stone has appealed the conviction and denies wrongdoing. He was supposed to report to prison on July 14th.

He would have had to serve forty months. The President stepped in and the White House reported that the President had commuted the sentence “in light of the egregious facts and circumstances surrounding his unfair prosecution, arrest, and trial.”

Trump tweeted:

Not everyone was happy about Trump’s decision. Of course Democrats were against what Trump did but one Republican joined them in their rhetoric.

On Saturday Senator Mitt Romney, R-Utah, tweeted this:

It is no surprise that Romney would disagree with anything that Trump does and has had feuded with the president in the past. He was the only Senate Republican to vote for an article of impeachment in Trump’s Senate impeachment trial.  Trump was accused of “obstruction of Congress” but was acquitted by the Senate.

Democrats accused the president of corruption. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi promised that Congress would act on the matter.

A statement by Pelosi on Saturday said, “President Trump’s decision to commute the sentence of top campaign advisor Roger Stone, who could directly implicate him in criminal misconduct, is an act of staggering corruption.”

The statement went on to say, “Congress will take action to prevent this type of brazen wrongdoing. Legislation is needed to ensure that no President can pardon or commute the sentence of an individual who is engaged in a cover-up campaign to shield that President from criminal prosecution.”

Pelosi tweeted this:

Democrats will always dispute what Trump or his administration do. They will do anything they can, with the help of the mainstream media, to try to stop Trump from being elected in November.

The presumptive presidential nominee and former Vice President, Joe Biden, got on the put down Trump bandwagon and tweeted this:

Stone  is 67 years old so he could be considered high risk for COVID-19.

A multitude of hardened criminals, who committed heinous crimes, have been released from prisons all over the country because of the coronavirus.

Stone is not a threat to society so why can’t Democrats just let it go?

There is a hate that the Democrats and Romney, who is a Republican in name only, hold that is very deep. Could they be afraid of Trump getting re-elected for a multitude of reasons?

Not only are the political differences at stake, there are a number of Politians in high places that may have accumulated large amounts of money that they have not been able to rationalize.

How many criminals are involved in government? Why are they not going off to jail cells?

We live in a two tier system. Democrats who do wrong don’t seem to go to prison let alone get indicted.

Is Loomer the Antidote to AOC?

by Daveda Gruber:

Is the twenty-six year old Republican from Florida’s district 21, Laura Loomer, the antidote to the “squad” led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? Let’s analyze this.

In an article from the New York Post GOP stragiest Roger Stone was quoted as saying, “She’s the Repulicans’ AOC. She’s young. She’s energetic. She’s feisty. She’s anti-establishment, and she has an enormous national following, as does AOC, which can help finance a congressional race.”

Young people running for Congress are not always given the credit that they deserve. Loomer is full of energy and social media must fear her activism because she has been banned from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Medium, Paypal, Venmo, GoFundMe, Lyft, Uber, Uber Eats and MGM Resorts.

As for the bans on her, that alone may have inspired her to take a stand and run for office.

Loomer told the Post, “They silenced me and violated my civil rights. I started thinking to myself, that what happened to me will happen to everyday Americans who don’t have my soap box.”

The feisty Loomer leaves a lasting impression on those who meet her. She has some big name donors who contributed to her campaign. Home Depot billionaire Bernard Marcus gave her campaign $2,800 and Eric Javits, who is a former US ambassador donated $1,000 to her campaign.

Some feel that Loomer is a breath of fresh air from the sunshine state. According to filings in April with the Federal Election Commission, her campaign collected $204,786 in the first quarter of 2020. Her total donations are nearly $600,000 and that puts her way ahead of the combination of funds collected by eight GOP primary rivals.

Unlike AOC, Loomer has been labeled as being racist and Islamophobic. AOC has been labeled as being not the brightest bulb in the box and standing strong with her fellow “squad members” on anti Jewish rhetoric.

Loomer appears to be in good hands with Karen Giorno, who has spent thirty years in GOP politics and served as then candidate Donald J. Trump’s 2016 Florida state director as her campaign director.

Giorno said, “The experience I had on the campaign with Donald Trump is really one of the reasons why I took a look at Laura Loomer. She reminded me a little bit of Donald Trump. She is very frenetic, in a good way, constant energy, high expectations of herself and others … she impressed me and I don’t get impressed very easily.”

This lively young woman is running for district 21 and that is where the Mar-a-Lago club is located. President Trump has recently made that his permanent primary address.

Loomer is strongly pro-Israel, tough on terrorism, pro-gun and a stanch supporter of President Trump.

If Loomer manages to get elected, and I sincerely believe that she will, she has a plan to take on AOC and her squad.

Loomer told the Post, “I am a one-woman squad. Republicans need more firepower. They need people who aren’t going to cower in fear of these women.”

Loomer who refers to the “squad” as “Jihadis,” will first face off with other GOP runners for district 21 in an August 18th primary.

Assuming that she’ll get through that easily, next she would go to her final matchup with the Democratic incumbent, Lois Frankel, who is a former West Palm Beach mayor who was elected to Congress in 2013.

Stone has said that Frankel is a weaker incumbent than Queens Representative Joe Crowley, who AOC famously knocked off in a huge upset in district 14 in The Bronx, New York, NY.

The New York Post tweeted this on April 18th:

The tweet brought a mixture of responses. It appears that you either love Loomer or you don’t. There doesn’t seem to be middle ground here. She’s very strong in her beliefs and I find it ironic that she’s running in a district that President Trump will be voting in. Will she get his vote? I believe she will.

I’ll put my money on Loomer for the primary and then again on her for the congressional seat.

Roger Stone Speaks Out After Arrest

by: Daveda Gruber:

On Friday Roger Stone was arrested in the wee hours of the morning. Stone was awakened in his Florida home by a slew of FBI SWAT team. CNN just happened to be there to film the arrest.

The SWAT team, with helmets on and with guns drawn, banged on Stone’s door and demanded that he come outside. They barraged into Stone’s home in Fort Lauderdale. Stone was asleep but woke up and went to the door in his pajamas.

President Trump had this to say:

Stone, aged 66, was taken into custody after being indicted by a federal grand jury yesterday as part of Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates during the 2016 presidential election.

During a press conference Stone said that his wife and dogs were frightened by the flashing lights and manner in which he was taken into custody.

For months, Stone has warned that he could be indicted. He has repeatedly denied the accusation that he actually had advance knowledge of WikiLeaks releasing hacked emails of Democrats during the 2016 campaign.

Stone spoke with reporters as he left the court. Stone said, “I will plead not guilty to these charges. I will defeat them in court. This is a politically-motivated investigation.”

Stone adamantly proclaimed that he will not dish dirt on the president to prosecutors.

Stone said, “There is no circumstance whatsoever under which I will bear false witness against the president, nor will I make up lies to ease the pressure on myself.”

The sealed indictment was unsealed on Friday. It does not charge Stone with conspiring with WikiLeaks or with the Russian officers Mueller says hacked them.

WikiLeaks is the anti-secrecy website that published emails about the Clinton campaign in 2016. or with the Russian officers Mueller says hacked them. with guns banging on Stone’s door and demanding that he come outside.

The indictment accuses Stone of lying about his interactions related to the WikiLeaks’ release during probes by Congress and Mueller’s team.

The indictment does raise questions about the hacked emails.

Stone is a former Trump adviser. He advised Trump for years but left the Trump campaign in August 2015. He served as an adviser to Trump for years before he ran for president. He left Trump’s campaign but kept regular contact with and publicly supported the Trump campaign through the 2016 election.

The indictment states that during the summer of 2016, Stone spoke to senior Trump campaign officials about WikiLeaks and information it might have had that would be damaging to Democrat Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

The indictment says that Stone was contacted by senior Trump campaign officials to inquire about future releases. It also says Stone continued to communicate with members of the Trump campaign about WikiLeaks.

On Friday a lawyer for Trump, Jay Sekulow, said, “The indictment today does not allege Russian collusion by Roger Stone or anyone else. Rather, the indictment focuses on alleged false statements Mr. Stone made to Congress.”

The indictment, which is 24 pages, alleges that Stone worked to obstruct the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Mueller’s team alleges Stone made false statements to the committee and denied he had records that were sought by the committee and persuaded a witness to provide false testimony.

Mueller’s investigation has gone on for more than a year and half but no collusion has be uncovered.
