Alec Baldwin To Headline Iowa Democratic Party Fall Gala

Emmy-award winning actor will rally Democrats on November 27 ahead of 2018 elections.

The Iowa Democratic Party announced today that progressive advocate and Emmy-Award winning actor Alec Baldwin will be taking the stage as the 2017 Iowa Democratic Party Fall Gala Keynote Speaker.

While Alec Baldwin captured national attention for his portrayal of Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, he is just as committed to putting a stop to the irresponsible lawmaking in DC and places like Iowa. Ahead of the premier of the 43rd season of Saturday Night Live, he told reporters that he hoped that his work would inspire Americans to vote in the midterm elections.

“Heading into the 2018 midterm elections and beyond, I have decided to rededicate my efforts to helping the Democratic party win across the country. That effort begins in earnest in Iowa on Monday, November 27th,” said Mr. Baldwin. “There will be many more opportunities both before and after, and you can plan on seeing me out there with folks on the ground fighting this most important battle for our future.”

“We are so excited to welcome Alec Baldwin to Iowa, and to have him lend his voice to the growing chorus of people who are ready to see change in Iowa. He will be able to provide a unique and entertaining perspective on the challenges facing our country and how we can work together to rebuild our party,” said Iowa Democratic Party Chair Troy Price. “There is no question we’ve got our work cut out for us next year. We’re not backing down, and we’re not taking anything for granted. This year’s dinner will highlight the strength of our great ticket, as well as the passion and commitment Democrats have to take back our state.”

The Conservative Caucus sent my Died in the Wool Democratic Mother

a membership card today. The card has a stomach turning pic of Rump on it. The envelope warns: "Stand With Trump Against the COUP!" Already the Right Wing Propaganda machine is working overtime to blast out it's lies. Be prepared folks!
Although they really wasted their time and effort here, many people in this area will fall for it. Has anyone here received this junk mail? Who is funding this anti-democracy effort? Going to go check my mail as soon as I get a break.

CIA director met with DNC hack conspiracy theorist at Trump's urging

CIA director looking into DNC hack theory
(CNN)CIA Director Mike Pompeo recently met -- at the urging of President Donald Trump -- with one of the principal deniers of Russian interference in the US election, according to multiple intelligence sources.

Trump apparently made the highly unusual request that Pompeo meet with the former National Security Agency employee and look into a theory that the leak of Democratic Party emails last year was an inside job rather than a cyberattack by Russian hackers.

William Binney, the former NSA employee-turned-whistleblower who circulated the conspiracy theory, confirmed to CNN that he met with Pompeo for about an hour on October 24 -- despite the fact the intelligence community concluded early this year that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election.
The meeting was first reported by The Intercept.

The CIA responded to CNN's inquiry about the meeting by saying that Pompeo "stands by and has always stood by the January 2017 intelligence community assessment" that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election.

Troll Alert: They seem to be out in full force this morning after

a night of getting their gobs smacked off by educated voters.

Reports of the Democratic Party's death are highly exaggerated.


Reports of the Democratic Party's death are highly exaggerated.

I can honestly report that Democratic politics at the local level in my precinct are healthier than they ever have been. Last week Democrats from 5 Rural Iowa counties held a joint forum to introduce Primary candidates running for Governor and the 3rd District in Congress here in the heart of Redneck Iowa. Turnout was great and enthusiasm was high. IMHO, Donna Brazile's comments sound nutty at worst and self-serving at best. Carry on and Get Out and VOTE!
