'Prepare to not know who won' Kean vs. Malinowski NJ's 7th District race on election night


There’s no New Jersey congressional election more competitive this year than the one for the 7th District, where incumbent Democrat Tom Malinowski is hoping to fend off a challenge from Republican Tom Kean, Jr.

That’s despite Kean nearly ousting Malinowski two years ago, and a redistricting that shifted 30,000 more Republicans into the district, extending its boundaries to include all of Warren County and more towns in Sussex County. As of Wednesday, the Cook Political report had New Jersey's 7th District rated as “leans Republican.” Roll Call considers Malinowski the second-most vulnerable incumbent in the House. Yet the Malinowski camp says its internal polls show the race is extremely tight.

What we learned about polarization
Kean has attempted to draw a clear link between his opponent and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (In the only televised debate between the two candidates, Kean mentioned Pelosi 11 times). Malinowski ties Kean to former President Donald Trump and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (one Westfield resident, Carole Cooke, said outside the nearby Trader Joe’s that Kean’s campaign promise to have Trump’s back is a “no go for me".

Democratic strongholds like Rahway could prove to be essential to Malinowski’s strategy in the run-up to the election. The town was pulled into the 7th District through the same redistricting process that upped the count of Republicans overall.

“Malinowski has not been their representative, and so they're used to voting for Donald Payne [the Democratic incumbent seeking re-election in the 10th Congressional District],” Solomon said. “So it'll be very interesting to watch whether Malinowski can get turnout in Rahway. That is key.”

Malinowski (NJ), Casten (IL), Wild (PA) Propose Pull Troops from the Gulf

I'm not using their headline - because it's not a simple matter of 'revenge'. It's smart retaliation. They've made their bed with Putin, are trying to influence our election (gas prices), and we are still the largest producer of oil in America.


Democratic Reps. Tom Malinowski of New Jersey, Sean Casten of Illinois and Susan Wild of Pennsylvania have introduced legislation asking for the withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, after OPEC announced its decision to curb oil production on Wednesday.

Tweet: "This is a hostile act by Saudi Arabia and the UAE, designed to hurt the United States and our allies and to help Russia, despite President Biden's overtures," Malinowski wrote on Twitter on Thursday."If Saudi Arabia and the UAE want to help Putin keep oil prices high, they should look to him for their defense," he added in a later tweet.

In a joint statement, Malinowski, Casten and Wild said: "OPEC's decision appears designed to increase Russia's oil export revenues, enabling Putin to continue his war crimes in Ukraine, and undercutting Western sanctions."

Malinowski, Casten and Wild said that Saudi Arabia's and the UAE's decision to cut oil production "despite President Biden's overtures to both countries in recent months, is a hostile act against the United States and a clear signal that they have chosen to side with Russia in its war against Ukraine." In response, they called for the U.S. to "resume acting like the superpower in our relationship with our client states in the Gulf."

Here's a link to the Bill:


This Act may be cited as the ‘‘Strained Partnership Act’’


My Congressman (Malinowski) is facing a sharp battle in the NJ th with a guy who pals around with domestic terrorists (Kean Jr).
Huge risk to do this. However, his life has been Human Rights. He and his mom fled Poland when he was a little guy. He KNOWS Russia.

MF45's Legacy - My Thought of the Day

When the history books are written - all of the outrageous, cruel, vindictive things MF45 Did to human beings, and said during the 45's tenure will be forgotten.

Everything will be overshadowed by Trump being impeached.

Trump will be on Time Magazine for being the third President to be impeached in the house (Nixon resigned).

Trump's traitorous, dictatorial, and authoritative behavior will be noted. The fact that 45 lost the popular vote will be noted. The fact that 45 shifted the political landscape and killed the Republican Party as I've known it in my 46 years on this earth, will be noted. The fact that our Republic fell during this Administration will be noted. The final paragraphs will be that Trump Was Impeached.

And as awful as the past few years have been, it makes me very happy that when I'm dead and gone the rising dominant culture will look at him as I do Andrew Johnson, Woodrow Wilson, Ronald Reagan. Nixon . . .

And I say that because I'm a black woman that is the product of a mixed race marriage. My brother's girls are half Latina. My sisters children - their father is a Muslim. Her daughter is now engaged to a first generation American, whose parents are from Colombia. My descendants will find somewhere out there in the 'Cloud Record' that their Great Great Aunt wrote these words. Similar to the words I found in the New Deal Slave Narratives of my Great Great Grandmother being interviewed - I hope they link me to this electronic record and know - I was never for this son of a bitch.

And that I was very happy to see not just TRUMP - but evil face he exposed of the many Americans in the old dominant culture who voted for him - Impeached, brought to heel, and the beginning of the end of their dominance.

When the history books are written - Trump was Impeached by the House of Representatives on December 18, 2019.

I'm concerned with the

65 million that voted for Clinton - but who lost due to the Electoral College.
The 4.8 million disgruntled Republicans that voted for Johnson/Weld - I grew up with some of those people and they HATE Donald Trump and now live in places like NC, Florida, NV, and Arizona.
I'm concerned about the 1.4 million that voted for Jill Stein.
I'm concerned about the 730K that voted for Evan McMullin
I'm concerned about the 2600 votes cast for Kasich

That's 71 Million active voters in 2016.

Let's win this thing.

Black Voters for Trump/Immigration

For my journal -

Minorities 'increased' GOP votes for Trump.

Ties to recent post about blacks being the reason for Trumps treatment of asylum seekers.

From JAG - in case you pop in

This is interesting. There is a certain specific type that will always take jabs at well educated affluent black women. Our confidence is described as something else. Noting this thread for a reason.

Joseph DiGenova - Maddow Apr 4th - ties to Erik Prince - Susan Rice


Fast forward to about 40 minutes into the show.

She starts with Digenova's involvement in the Clinton/Lewinsky fiasco. 300 times he and his wife commented in early 1998 on the "happening".

He was in on the Clinton nonsense (LIES) in 2016.

Now this week - it comes out that Erik Prince of Frontier Service based in Hong Kong - formerly of Blackwater now named something else . . .had a "back channel" meeting with a Russian official prior to Trump taking office.

It's The Intercept - I apologize in advance but they covered it:
Reference Points:
Money laundering investigation - his new company:

Frontier Services Group

50 minutes into the show - Andrea Mitchell is on the show talking about the diversions away from Russia. It pivots off Digenova's shenanigans. Digenova who started the Susan Rice nonsense.

Stay with me here . . .

Digenova's wife? The 300 comments on the Clinton investigation by Ken Starr in 1998?

Guess what her name is?

Victoria Toensing.

Who has been Erik Prince's attorney and spokesperson aside from his now third wife Katherine Stacy Deluke Capace Prince? (She's the one who posted the pictures on Facebook from Trump HQ on election night)

Victoria Toensing.

Reference Point:

Blackwater founder Erik Prince goes to war against a former business partner

We all knew it was bullshit about Rice - but now we know who planted this non story . . .and why.

I'll be watching Maddow tonight. I've got a feeling she's going to make the connection tonight.

Digenova - married to Erik Prince's attorney Toensing - placed this diversion Nothing Burger in the media.

Stay strong Susan Rice! If Toensing is going after you - you are doing the right thing and have done the right thing.

This Administration knows Susan Rice can connect the dots. So does Erik Prince. I think he was unmasked.

I've tried not to comment on it

There are so many other things to comment on with Trump - but . . .

This has some serious force behind it.

Meet Chandler Smith - the mom of 3 from Ohio who kind of formed the 'Vote Trump Get Dumped' thing.
Here she says she, "never considered herself much of a political activist"

She might not be, but her father is Steven Baer.

Vote Trump Get Dumped was founded by an Ohio woman named Chandler Smith and her husband Blake. Baer is Chandler Smith’s father. He was once described by the National Review as a conservative mega-donor and “the world’s most successful email harasser,” known for sending “combative and colorful e-mail missives...to a who’s-who list of power brokers in the conservative world.”

I called Baer. In an hour-long phone call, he told me that he was not in “direct contact” with Katie Johnson. That said, he added, “I’ve seen her on video and spoken to her on the phone. Although of course we can always be fooled.”

Baer then launched into a passionate diatribe against Donald Trump, whom he saw as the destruction of everything the Party of Lincoln holds dear. He said he and his wife became “Never Trumpers” after the South Carolina primaries. “The way it happened for us is we decided we were opposed to Trump,” he said. “We see him as a very dangerous person for the Republic. We see him as a Mussolini or Hitler type. And we discovered in South Carolina that he’s also a terrible misogynist.”

Baer told me he learned of the rape allegations from none other than Al Taylor, who he said showed him an explosive video of Johnson outlining her claims.

Check out Steven Baer's 'email list'. He's brutal to elected Republican officials. Just BRUTAL. He believe he is King Shit in the Republican/Conservative movement and has even had a cease and desist from Paul Ryan!

I think with this a few days away - the shit is going to get real for Trump. This shit is getting real!
