Emily Cain courts anonymous Hollywood billionaires for campaign cash

Career politician and Democratic challenger for Maine’s 2nd congressional district, Emily Cain, will continue to face an uphill battle in fundraising as we near the November elections. After raising $385,000 in the first quarter of 2016, her newest reported cash on hand amounts are estimated at $785,000, or roughly one-half of what incumbent Republican representative Bruce Poliquin has at his disposal. However, the Cain campaign is still bragging that she’s ahead of the fundraising pace she set in 2014.

But, what the Cain campaign doesn’t want you to know is how their candidate recently ventured from Maine to California for meetings with a group of liberal billionaire elites, the Democracy Alliance (DA), all of whom are notorious for flooding dark money into politics.

AGs United for Clean Power fails to fulfill its mission

A coalition of Attorneys General (AG) have launched a full-fledged witch hunt into fossil fuel companies and energy groups who they believe may be misleading the public about the harmful impacts of carbon emissions on humans and the environment, and the larger role these gases play in climate change. The …

National clean power group serves fraudulent subpoena to silence opposition

This article first appeared in The Maine Wire. Two weeks ago, I provided commentary on AGs United for Clean Power, a group of attorneys general who went public in late March, openly announcing their plans to prosecute and serve subpoenas to entities that have opposing views on energy policy. Maine’s own attorney …

............When someone suggests that one cannot propose a different opinion on a subject without being ostracized severely (perhaps even investigated by the government), I (naturally) would suspect that one might even be correct. As I am naturally counter culture, left handed and once red-headed, I think different than most (and freakin love it). Obviously, I am a candidate for a FEMA camp for counter-liberal thoughts. Even my basketball thoughts are the reverse of most.

It's such a shame that big oil doesn't have much influence in government.

Sanders supporters duped by Wasserman Shultz and the DNC

To those who supported Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Primary:

The Democratic party blocked out your voice. You never had a chance from the start. DNC leaders conspired against your candidate throughout the primary season and are now silent in response to the email leak.

In contrast, millions of registered Republicans groaned as Donald Trump won primary after primary. Party Chairman Reince Priebus, House Speaker Paul Ryan and other party leaders vocalized deep opposition to Trump’s platform for most of the primary season. However, Trump earned the most votes, and despite strong opposition from party leadership, was still given the nomination without conflict in what was arguably the most diverse and inclusive Republican convention in history.

That's completely accurate. Trump beat the GOP, and the Democratic leadership beat Bernie.

Question 2 will only benefit Maine’s most resourceful districts

This year, Maine voters will face an array of ballot measures, replete with fine print that no one fully understands. Similar to the last presidential election cycle, a host of left-leaning, out-of-state plutocrats and affluent special interest groups have bullied their way onto the ballot here in Maine by spending exorbitant amounts of dough to further their legislative agendas.

Most of these questions only appear on the ballot so our state can be used as a trial balloon to create a precedent for the rest of the country. To these outside interests, we are only a lab rat and a stepping stone. If their proposed laws earn passage, Maine will become just another notch on the bedpost.

While their time in our state is often short-lived, the groups that push these initiatives seek to change your way of life permanently. With out-of-state money comes out-of-state advertising and marketing techniques, readily used to mislead and deceive voters. Additionally, the language that makes it into the question that voters see on the ballot is usually infested with informational lapses, which plays right into their ploy.

Liberals unlikely to keep election-year promises on welfare

... As many may have seen, the Cato Institute recently published their 13th biennial report on fiscal policy of US governors, grading their taxing and spending records on an academic scale. Scoring highest in the report with an A grading was Maine Gov. Paul LePage, making him the most fiscally responsible governor in the country.

LePage was one of just five governors in the nation to receive the highest possible mark in the report.

The report “examines state budget actions since 2014… Governors who have cut taxes and spending the most receive the highest grades, while those who have increased taxes and spending the most receive the lowest grades,” according to the Cato Institute.
