Fox News: CU Pres. David Bossie appears on Fox News The Ingraham Angle: “Despite effort and funding, Democrats lose Kavanaugh fight”

This is a rush transcript from "The Ingraham Angle," October 8, 2018. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

LAURA INGRAHAM, HOST: All right, welcome to "The Ingraham Angle." I'm Laura Ingraham on a historic night in Washington. Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in at an extraordinary event at the White House tonight where Donald Trump offered these words to now Justice Kavanaugh.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure. Those who stepped forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation. Not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

INGRAHAM: If I had to guess, I would bet that Donald Trump wrote those lines himself -- just my guess. It was great. But the war isn't over. As the left fires off a new round of antics in the wake of his nomination, we have every angle covered with Ken Starr, Victor Davis Hanson. We got Dave Bossie, Devin Nunes -- a great lineup tonight.

But first, the left's rage against the Trump machine, that is the focus of tonight's Angle. So far Democrats seem to have learned nothing from their futile battle against the Brett Kavanaugh's nomination. They put the country through three weeks of what basically amounted to a he said, she said.

Conservative Groups Launch TV Ads Supporting Judge Kavanaugh

WHILE THE SENATE HAS PAUSED its confirmation process, four conservative groups are out with new TV advertisements urging the addition of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

The commercials made their debuts in the days after Christine Blasey Ford told a Senate committee that Judge Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers and are airing as the Federal Bureau of Investigation probes those and other allegations, which Judge Kavanaugh has denied.

The most politically charged of the ads is a 30-second spot by Citizens United, a nonprofit group steered by David Bossie, a longtime ally of President Trump. “Liberal Democrats will stop at nothing to smear him,” a narrator says of Judge Kavanaugh. It goes on to make claims about three Democratic Senate Judiciary Committee members and asks, “Whose values belong on the Supreme Court? Judge Kavanaugh’s? Or these liberal Democrats’?"

FEDERAL ELECTION COMMISSION RECORDS SHOW the group is spending at least $250,000 on the spot. Mr. Bossie didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Lifezette: Time to Unify, Conservative Leaders Tell the GOP Establishment

An obsession over President Donald Trump among some Establishment Republican circles threatens to sink the entire party in November, conservative leaders warned Thursday on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

On paper, the Senate offers an opportunity for Republicans to pick up seats, with Democratic incumbents’ seeking re-election in states that Trump won by double digits in 2016.

But the GOP could not only let those chances fall through the cracks. It could actually also lose control of the upper chamber if infighting prevents a strong turnout for vulnerable Republican incumbents such as Dean Heller of Nevada and Ted Cruz of Texas.

“We all know the anti-Trump base is coming out,” said Ari Fleischer, who served as White House press secretary under George W. Bush. “Like it or not, this is a nationalized election. There’s no dodging it, and the Trump base needs to show up in presidential year numbers, not off-year numbers.”

David Bossie, president of the activist group Citizens United, said Democrats never seem to let party squabbles divide them when to comes to general elections.

“The Left is always good at standing together, no matter awkward it may be,” he told host Laura Ingraham on the Fox News show. “Look, the Republicans really need to — they have 54 days to decide whether or not they want to continue to have control of the House and of the Senate.”

Bossie criticized Republican leaders including Sens. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Bob Corker of Tennessee for never seeming to miss a chance to knock Trump, even though neither is seeking re-election due to their unpopularity back home.

“Trump Derangement Syndrome amongst some of these Republicans is really unfortunate,” he said. “Look, Flake and Corker should be out there campaigning for candidates across their states and across the country. And instead, they’re not. They’re out there attacking this president and undermining his great policy positions, these great economic numbers that we have.”

Fleischer agreed.

“Why do they have to keep stirring this pot?” he asked. “You know, I understand how the press can put a microphone in front of a politician and say, ‘Will you say something anti-Trump?’ and they run to do it. It’s not constructive.”

Lifezette: Bossie Tells McConnell ‘to Go Nuclear’ on Border Security After Tibbetts Murder

President Donald Trump should tell Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) "to go nuclear" to pass immigration reforms by ending the 60-vote supermajority threshold after Mollie Tibbetts' murder, David Bossie said Wednesday on Fox News' "The Story With Martha MacCallum."

"So if I was advising this president, I would say, 'Tell Mitch McConnell to go nuclear.' You have to say this is a national security issue, a simple majority of the Senate to pass border security," said Bossie, who was Trump's deputy campaign manager in 2016.

McConnell can change Senate rules with a simple majority vote of the chamber.

Tibbetts, a 20-year-old University of Iowa student, was reported missing last month. The five-week manhunt that ensued concluded in tragedy Tuesday when Rivera led authorities to a body believed to be hers.

Suspected murderer Cristhian Bahena Rivera, an illegal immigrant, told authorities he saw her jogging, got out of his car and ran alongside her, causing her to feel threatened. She said she was going to call the police, at which point Rivera said he blacked out. He then led authorities to her body.

Rivera worked for four years at Yarrabee Farms in Iowa using false identification, according to the farm's co-owner. Rivera has been charged with first-degree murder, and his bond was set at $5 million.

Fox News: David Bossie: Sorry, Democrats, primary results prove that Trump’s agenda is a smash hit

The results in Tuesday's primaries in eight states are an early indication that President Trump's "America First" agenda and accomplishments are winning the support of the American people. This is good news for Republicans running in the Nov. 6 midterm elections.

The Trump agenda of economic growth, job creation, border security, and peace through strength abroad is causing voters to seriously consider the consequences of supporting candidates who carry the Democratic mantle of tax hikes, protecting sanctuary cities, and the hyper-partisan and baseless impeachment witch hunt.

In California, it will be hard for Democrats to point to evidence that a blue wave is coming in November. In congressional districts 39, 45 and 48 – all key pieces of the puzzle for a Democratic takeover of the House of Representatives – Republican candidates received over 50 percent of the vote in the “jungle primary” system.

With Democrats clinging to a meager 3 percent advantage in generic ballot polling averages, picking up the 23 House seats necessary to win a Democratic majority looks like it will be more difficult than expected.

Democrats also failed in their quest to send two open-border liberals to the general election in the California gubernatorial contest. Republican businessman John Cox captured second place, due to strong support from President Trump.

Cox will be a strong advocate for the president's pro-growth economic record in California. This will be a sharp contrast to Democrat Gavin Newsom's ultra-liberal objectives, which will only continue California's charge into the abyss.

Also worth noting is that a Democratic state senator in California was recalled for voting for gas tax increases, costing California Democrats the supermajority in the Legislature necessary to raise taxes even more.

Fresh off one of the best jobs reports in years, voters came to the polls in the eight states where primaries were held with growing optimism and a feeling that there is reason to feel good again in America.

Roll Call: Patrick Morrisey Wins West Virginia GOP Senate Primary

State attorney general will face Joe Manchin in November



West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey has won the Republican nomination to take on Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin III in November in what's likely to be one of the most closely watched races in the country.

He took 35 percent of the vote in a six-way GOP primary field, besting Rep. Evan Jenkins and former Massey Energy CEO Don Blankenship who finished with 29 percent and 20 percent, respectively.

The defeat of Blankenship, a former convict, is a win for national Republicans who spent upward of a million dollars attacking him.

Trump went as far as to tweet against Blankenship on Monday, saying he'd be unelectable in November and asking voters to "remember Alabama," a reference to the Senate special election last December when Democrat Doug Jones upset controversial GOP nominee Roy Moore.

With the help of a super PAC supporting him, Morrisey hammered Jenkins throughout the campaign, accusing him of being a liberal. Meanwhile, Jenkins was also hit by national Democrats through a super PAC called Duty and Country.

In the final days of the race, Morrisey turned his attention to Blankenship, who had seen a late surge in internal polling after last week's Fox News debate. Morrisey released robocalls and a digital ad attacking the former coal executive for his role in a 2010 mine explosion in southern West Virginia and for serving time in prison in Nevada. He also attacked him for not filing his personal financial disclosure report, threatening to call Blankenship's parole officer. (His parole ends Tuesday.)

Breitbart: Total and Complete Surrender: Democrats’ Schumer Shutdown Cave Endangers Leftists, Emboldens GOP Walking into Midterm Elections

Congressional Democrats on Monday, the third day of the government shutdown, completely caved to the Republicans—getting absolutely nothing policy-wise for their efforts.
And perhaps they jeopardized their midterm election chances in a volatile voting year, hurting House and Senate Democrats' chances alike. But it also provides Republicans with a much-needed overarching theme for the midterm elections, which is that Democrats favor illegal aliens over Americans, while Republicans put Americans first. Party-wide, top Republicans on Monday were fired up after the Schumer Shutdown ended in absolute utter failure for the Democrats.

"Millions of Americans have watched Democrats resist and obstruct President Trump at every move and they watched Democrats put politics above people by voting for this shutdown," Ronna Romney McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), told Breitbart News on Monday afternoon. "For the Democrats who chose once again to jeopardize government funding, November is going to be a wake-up call."

President Donald Trump and Republicans on both sides of Capitol Hill are jubilant after this complete and total victory, as Democrats offered unconditional surrender just three days into their ill-advised government shutdown strategy to try to push for an amnesty for illegal alien recipients of the expiring DACA program. As the government reopens Monday evening after the Senate first passed a government funding bill followed by the House, Republicans party-wide are salivating at the political opportunities that lay ahead in November of this year.

"The pathetic Schumer shutdown has made one thing crystal clear to all Americans heading into the 2018 midterms elections," Dave Bossie, the president of Citizens United and former deputy campaign manager for President Trump's 2016 general election campaign, told Breitbart News. "The Democrats' number one priority is to protect 700,000 illegal aliens ahead of 300 million Americans. President Trump is fighting for all Americans first. His priority is making sure that 300 million Americans are far more wealthy, far more secure, and far more optimistic about the future than they were during Barack Obama's failed presidency and Nancy Pelosi's failed tenure as House Speaker."
