anonymous asked:

Can u explain the republican political ad targeted at women?? In not American so idgi

I’m guessing you meant this one.

Basically, the ad (gifs 1-2, 5-7) is attacking Obama and Obamacare (the new healthcare system) and saying that he doesn’t know what American women need/want.

It’s funny because most women are happy with how Obamacare makes most women’s health checks/treatments/prescriptions free or at least very cheap… meaning that it’s the Republican party that doesn’t know what American women want/need, which is what the sarcastic satire was pointing out. 

I don’t really know how to explain it other than that, see the whole video here

“I felt like we all spoke from our hearts, and I am so gratified that you responded. Now, together, let’s give America the kind of comeback that New Hampshire has just given me!!!”

Billionaire Steve Cohen bankrolled ads slamming John Kasich for being a Wall Street banker

(REUTERS/Steve Marcus)
Here is a bit of a look into where all this Wall Street political money is going.

Up to Tuesday night’s primary, political ads slamming Republican presidential candidate John Kasich for his time working at Lehman Brothers were showing in New Hampshire.

Those ads were bankrolled by Chris Christie’s super-PAC, America Leads.

And as Hunter Walker over at Yahoo points out, America Leads is bankrolled for the most part by hedge fund billionaire Steve Cohen.

“As a banker at Lehman Brothers — a Wall Street bank that failed — Kasich made millions while taxpayers were forced to bail out Wall Street,” the ad says. "John Kasich. Washington insider. Wall Street banker.“

Of course, Kasich’s campaign thought that was pretty rich when this was pointed this out.

From Walker, at Yahoo:

"This is the kind of hypocrisy that has caught up with Chris Christie here in New Hampshire,” he said. “That he would turn to a Wall Street insider to fund an attack on Gov. Kasich for his ties to Wall Street is why he’s not going to have a ticket out of here.”

Cohen is the founder of family-office hedge fund Point72. Before that he rose to fame at the helm of the hedge fund SAC Capital, which ran afoul of federal investigators and was shut down in 2014.

Kasich placed second behind Donald Trump in Tuesday night’s Republican primary.

Republican presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) said it was terrible that the sailors detained by Iran were videotaped putting their hands up and surrendering. But now Cruz is using that same footage shot by Iran in a new campaign ad. The ad, “Have Your Back,” uses the footage of U.S. Navy sailors created by the Iranian regime as a backdrop for a promise from Cruz to stand up for them…

“I know Hillary and I think she’d make a great President.” -Donald Trump, in a 2008 Blog Post

Donald Trump wrote that.  Just google it.  And he wants conservatives to vote for him.  So he’s stupid or he thinks you are.  This Tuesday, consider voting for anyone but Trump.  Vote for a duck.  Vote for a stapler.  Anything would be better.

TRUMP WINS NEW HAMPSHIRE

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump just scored his first victory of the 2016 election season, winning the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, CNN, Associated Press, and other outlets reported.

Trump was declared the winner shortly after New Hampshire polls closed at 8 p.m. ET. 

Trump had roughly 34% of the vote while the second-place finisher, Ohio Gov. John Kasich ®, had about 16%. Those numbers are as of 11:25 p.m. ET, with more than 75% of precincts reporting results, per the AP.

Trump started his speech off humbly, congratulating the other Republican candidates, adding that “we have some real talent in the Republican party.”

“You started it, remember,” he told his voters in a victory speech from his New Hampshire headquarters Tuesday night.

The crowd began chanting back “Trump! Trump! Trump! Trump!”

“We’re going to beat all of these countries that are taking so much of our money away from us,” he said, later adding “I am going to be the greatest jobs president that God ever created.”

Donald Trump.

Most polls had given Trump a big edge heading into the primary. The CNN/WMUR poll from Monday gave Trump a more than 14-point lead.

Trump was upset by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in last week’s Iowa caucuses, even though polls leading up to the vote had given him a lead there. Trump later claimed that he would have actually won that contest if Cruz didn’t cheat.

But New Hampshire was long considered a friendlier electorate for him, with its more moderate electorate. To be sure, Trump barnstormed through the state over the past week, holding both large rallies — which have become a campaign staple — but also more traditional, retail-style campaign events that have not been hallmarks of his campaign.

Behind Trump, the early results showed a clump of candidates battling for second place — Ohio Gov. John Kasich ®, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush ®, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida). Those candidates (aside from Cruz) four candidates, all of whom align more with the Republican establishment, were vying to gain momentum as possible alternatives to Trump and Cruz.

“We are going to start winning again,” he said of the country. “And we’re going to win so much, you’re going to be so happy. We’re going to make America so great again. Maybe greater than ever before.”

He finished his speech by guaranteeing that “We’re going to win in South Carolina."

Bernie Sanders is the realist we should elect
Yes, his positions are emotionally popular, but they also make good policy sense.
By http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000403637764

As the Iowa caucuses near, Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) have released TV ads that together echo a popular theme in the mainstream media. Clinton’s ad depicts the job of the presidency as tough and change as hard. You need someone experienced who can face down foreign adversaries and stand up to reactionary Republicans. Sanders’s ad — with Simon and Garfunkel’s “America” stirring memories — offers the romance of the United States coming together. Many of the pundits agree — this is a choice between head and heart. If Democrats think with their heads, they will go with Hillary; with their hearts, with Bernie.

Iowa Senator Ernst Questions Trump’s Conservative Credentials

U.S. Senator Joni Ernst, one of the most popular politicians in the state of Iowa, says she can’t vouch for Republican frontrunner Donald Trump’s conservative credentials.

“The unfortunate thing is we don’t have a record that we can judge him by,” Ernst said at a Bloomberg Politics breakfast in Des Moines Monday when asked whether Trump is a conservative. “Judging from what he said just a few years ago, I would not have agreed that he was a conservative.“

Iowa voters will head to caucuses Monday night, casting the first ballots in the 2016 presidential race. And Trump, a brash outsider in a campaign where bombast is a virtue, enters the night in first place in the polls, according to a Bloomberg Politics/Des Moines Register Poll released over the weekend.

The prospect of Trump winning has unnerved some Republican leaders. Ads opposing him on air in Iowa highlight the billionaire businessman’s previous statements on abortion and guns, in which he sounds more like a Democrat. Yet Trump has ignited a base of Republican voters who rally behind his calls to stiffen U.S. immigration policy, defeat the Islamic State, block "bad deals” on trade and “make America great again.”

At Monday’s breakfast, Ernst said Trump has said conservative things during this campaign, spotlighting his comments on issues of abortion and taxes. And she said she’ll back him if he’s the Republican nominee for president.

Ernst, a Republican senator first elected in 2014, ran for office on her own underdog platform of forcing change in Washington. Her most memorable television ad in that Senate campaign highlighted her farming background. In it, she said she grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm and pledged to “make ’em squeal” in Washington.

Ernst hasn’t endorsed any candidate for president, though she has appeared at campaign events for Rubio. And she may not make caucus night herself, instead she’s planning to hop a flight to Washington ahead of a blizzard expected to roll into the Hawkeye State later tonight.

But this conventional wisdom clashes with the reality that this country has suffered serial devastations from choices supported by the establishment’s “responsible” candidates. On fundamental issue after issue, it is the candidate “of the heart” who is in fact grounded in common sense. It wasn’t Sanders’s emotional appeal, but his clearsightedness that led the Nation magazine, which I edit, to make only its third presidential endorsement in a primary in its 150-year history…

Bernie Sanders a Target of Ads by Republican Donor
A “super PAC” founded by the former TD Ameritrade executive Joe Ricketts is spending more than $600,000 on a television ad in Iowa lashing Senator Bernie Sanders as “too liberal.”
By Maggie Haberman

So a Republican Super Pac spent over half a million dollars on an attack ad against Bernie - but like the ad just lists reasons a lot of people will vote for him. It’s like Bernie will do X,Y,Z and I’m like yeah, I want that! And by paying to run the ad they’re giving Bernie more visibility. It’s like seriously?
