Pence To Plug Anti-Working Families Ticket At Non-Union Manufacturer

It’s fitting that Mike Pence is today campaigning at a non-union, Pipersville, PA, manufacturer, because Pence and Donald Trump have a decidedly anti-working families agenda.

For starters, there’s Trump’s baffling hypocrisy on outsourcing. The self-styled “opponent” of outsourcing has not only profited off outsourcing companies that he’s criticized, but also outsourced the production of his own Trump-branded products and imported foreign workers at prolific levels.

And then there’s the Trump-Pence tax plan, which would add $10 trillion in debt and disproportionately boot top income-earners. Donald Trump’s tax proposal would also, among other things, deliver “extremely large and unprecedented tax-cut windfalls for people with incomes exceeding $1 million a year, almost certainly at the expense of low- and middle-income households.”

Here’s where else the Trump-Pence ticket stands:

Joe Heck Can’t Hide His Real Record On Women’s Issues

Washington, DC –  Joe Heck has been campaigning to get the votes of women around the state of Nevada,  but the reality is that Joe Heck does not represent all Nevada women. On funding Planned Parenthood, equal pay, and providing resources to domestic violence programs, Joe Heck has repeatedly voted NO. Just this weekend, Joe Heck openly admitted he voted to defund Planned Parenthood, including the life saving prevention and screening services the organization provides.

“Congressman Joe Heck has been visiting GOP women’s events across the state, but he can’t hide his real record on women’s issues,”

President of American Bridge 21st Century Jessica Mackler.” The truth is Joe Heck has turned his back on Nevada’s women. He opposes equal pay for equal work, a living wage for working families, and wouldn’t fund domestic violence prevention programs. Heck hasn’t supported women as their representative- why would they ever give him a promotion?”

Pence Confirms There Is No Pivot

While in Cedar Rapids today, Mike Pence confirms Donald Trump is still the same racist, deport-them-all birther. Trump isn’t changing.

From KCRG-ABC interview in Cedar Rapids, IA:

REPORTER: There is some question of whether Trump is reworking his plan, which once called for the forced deportation of millions of illegal immigrants in the US. Pence says not to expect any changes.

 

PENCE: “Nothing’s changed. I think what you’re going to hear Donald Trump continue to do is give more and more detail to the policies that he’s been advocating from the very beginning of this campaign.”

Donald Trump’s Real African American Outreach

“Look at how much African American communities are suffering from Democratic control. To those I say the following: What do you have to lose by trying something new like Trump? What do you have to lose? You live in your poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?” — Donald Trump, 8/19/2016

Tonight in Ohio, Trump will likely continue to pander to African Americans but his latest pitch to African American voters isn’t holding water, and it won’t win votes. His latest attempt to woo African American voters is insulting and out-of-touch with the community. But what else can be expected from the same man whose past and present is tattooed with racism and discrimination against all minorities? Trump has already lost Republicans any hope of winning the Hispanic vote; his latest focus will only continue […]

Five Reasons Trump Can’t Pivot From His Mass Deportation Plan

It looks like Donald Trump didn’t appreciate his campaign staff trying to box him into a “pivot” away from his calls for the mass deportation of immigrant families, forcing his campaign to postpone a planned speech in Colorado this Thursday. For the last 48 hours, there has been an all-out, desperate attempt by Donald Trump’s campaign staff and surrogates to convince America that Trump might back off his repeated promises to forcibly deport millions of immigrant families. 

There is no pivot. For the past year, the Republican nominee has called Mexican immigrants rapists and drug dealers, threatened to take away U.S. citizenship from children born in this country, and claimed that a federal judge was biased because of his race. Trump has established himself as a racist, deport-them-all birther; and this morning, he said that he’s not “flip-flopping,” he’s sticking with a punitive immigration plan that “has to […]

Manafort Is Out, But Trump Still Loves Putin

When Donald Trump brought on Paul Manafort as his campaign chair, Trump very well knew he was getting a man who advised dictators around the world and who had uncomfortably close ties to pro-Vladimir Putin forces in Ukraine.

It turns out that Manafort is even sketchier than the general public was aware at the time Trump hired him. Manafort was behind “a series of [2006] anti-Nato, anti-Kiev protests in Crimea led by Viktor Yanukovych’s pro-Russian Party of Regions — now designated a criminal organisation,” and he may have received up to $12.7 million from Putin allies for the effort.

Further reports on Manafort’s ties to “undisclosed” — possibly illegal — foreign lobbying on behalf of a pro-Putin group reveal that Manafort’s firm “directly orchestrated a covert Washington lobbying operation on behalf of Ukraine’s ruling political party, attempting to sway American public opinion in […]

Unfit Demagogue Releases Ad Full of Lies

Mere hours after Donald Trump promised to always tell the truth to the American people, his campaign launched its first ad of the general election; it’s a negative smear full of lies and thinly veiled racial animus. But what did we expect from the man who demeaned Mexicans as rapists and criminals?  From his weeks long racial tirade against Judge Gonzalo Curiel to his warnings that Americans need to “lock their doors” to keep safe from refugees, Trump’s entire campaign has been built upon stoking racial fear and division.

Today’s ad demonstrates that despite a revolving door of campaign managers and senior staff, Trump isn’t changing. Making false claims about his opponent and citing discredited and racist lies from a known hate group show that Trump is still Trump: a temperamentally unfit demagogue whose immigration proposals stoke fears, seek to divide families, and would kill 4 million jobs.
