The McClintock Campaign asks Who Is The Real Jessica Morse?

Posted by: thepinetree on 09/25/2018 04:26 PM
Mariposa, CA...We published the post debate release from the Morse campaign and here is the post debate piece from the McClintock campaign. Sunday’s debate between Congressman McClintock and Jessica Morse highlighted a clear choice for voters in District 4, a choice that is as clear as it gets.  While Rep. McClintock highlighted a vision of economic growth, national security, and local control of our lands, Morse stuck to her script of lying about McClintock’s record (and her own) and trotted out the leftist playbook of more government, higher taxes, heavier regulations, more bureaucracy, and fewer choices.

Bill Cosby Gets 3 to 10 Years in Prison for Sex Assault

Posted by: thepinetree on 09/25/2018 12:31 PM
Norristown, Pa. (AP) — His Hollywood career and good-guy image in ruins, Bill Cosby was led off to prison in handcuffs Tuesday at age 81, sentenced to three to 10 years behind bars for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman. The punishment made him the first celebrity of the #MeToo era to be sent to prison and all but completed the dizzying, late-in-life fall from grace for the comedian, former TV star and breaker of racial barriers. “It is time for justice. Mr. Cosby, this has all circled back to you. The time has come,” Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill said. He quoted from victim Andrea Constand’s own statement to the court, in which she said Cosby took her “beautiful, young spirit and crushed it.”

Jessica Morse was Clear Winner in CA-04 Debate According to Her Campaign

Posted by: thepinetree on 09/24/2018 07:39 AM
Mariposa, CA...Released yesterday by the Morse Campaign..."This afternoon, challenger and first-time candidate Jessica Morse and Congressman Tom McClintock faced off in their first debate for the 4th Congressional District seat. In the debate, Morse stressed her local roots as a fifth-generation Northern Californian and her commitment to fighting for the issues important to the community that raised her. As expected, career politician McClintock struggled to explain his vote to eliminate coverage for people with pre-existing conditions – a position that would negatively affect nearly 300,000 of his constituents. Further, McClintock couldn't defend his vote against a budget bill that would’ve provided the district with funding to prevent forest fires.
