[OC] Justice Democrats with a realistic/guaranteed chance to win their primaries today.

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

Kansas 3rd – Brent Welder – Brent is surging in the polls and was even on CNN last night. Here is an August 4th poll that strongly favors Brent winning his primary. I place his chances of winning at 85%

Kansas 4th – James Thompson – Thompson won his primary in the special election in 2017 and nearly won the district that was heavily GOP held. He faces Laura Lombard who came in a distant 3rd in the special election primary. Thompson like Welder had the benefit of Bernie and AOC campaigning on his behalf with rallies in Kansas. He should win his primary comfortably. I place his chances of winning at 95%.

Michigan Governor's Race – Abdul El-Sayed – AES like Welder and Thompson had Bernie rallying for him. However he is in less of an advantageous position compared to the aforementioned others. His opponent is pulling in tons of cash and is currently polling anywhere from 5-10 points ahead of Abdul. I would place his chances of winning at 45%

Michigan 1st – Matt Morgan – Morgan is in a very peculiar position. He isn't even on the ballot. However NO Democrat is. He simply needs to achieve a certain threshold of write in votes, which he said (in an interview with Cenk Uygur) he is very confident he will do based on internals. I place his chances of advancing at 90%

Michigan 2nd – Robert Davidson – Robert is running unopposed in his primary. Not much else to say, other than he will be the Democratic nominee in November. His chances of winning are 100%

Michigan 6th – David Benac – David is currently the lowest funded candidate of 4 candidates in his primary. The most recent filings have him 5 times less money than 3rd, 6 times less money than 2nd, and 14 times less money than 1st. Based on this alone, in a crowded primary, I place his chances of advancing at 10%.

Michigan 11th – Fayrouz Saad – Ms. Saad is up against 3 establishment candidates which in theory sounds good for her if they split the vote. However a late July poll had her polling in 4th at 10%. I place her chances of winning at 20%.

Michigan 13th – Rashida Tlaib – Tlaib currently boasts the most fundraising money, however she is up against John Conyers Jr's great nephew. This could come into play because of the last name and familial connection. There is little polling out, but Tlaib seems to be in the thick of it. I place her chances of winning at 40%

Missouri 1st – Cori Bush – Even with the help of AOC and Nina Turner, the push may not be enough for Bush. The incumbent Dem is fairly popular and in his last primary challenge he won over 65% of the vote. Bush may pull an upset like AOC, but there is no information to accurately predict such. I place her chances of winning at 25%

Missouri 7th – Jamie Schoolcraft – I have found nothing on any of the candidates relating to polling, buzz, or any of the sort. I decided to go with purely twitter followers and Schoolcraft is in 3rd in that regard (because 1 person did not have a twitter). I will not predict this race, it's impossible based on the information.

Washington 3rd – Dorothy Gasque – Dorothy was interviewed by Cenk Uygur yesterday and commented on how a lot of her campaigning has been stonewalled on social media because of her combat photos of her prior military service. Based on what I gathered she is in the running vs the Incumbent and Carolyn Long. I place her chance of winning at 40%

Washington 7th – Pramila Jayapal – One of the few current sitting JD candidates up for reelection. She is running only against 1 other candidate, a Republican, so she will be the Democratic nominee in November. **I place her chances of winning at 100%

Washington 9th – Sarah Smith – Sarah is an excellent candidate. However she faces 2 issues in her primary. She is running against a popular Democratic incumbent and a repeat runner on the GOP side. Her problem becomes, can she take enough votes from 2 people who may already have the name recognition and foothold to place top 2 and advance to the general election. I place her chances of advancing at 30%


That's all the JD's up for election today. Remember to go vote! Hopefully all of these candidates listed win!

Dear friends, It’s now shockingly clear that Donald Trump is Putin’s poodle.

The Shocking Truth about Trump But we need the world to understand why, before it’s too late…

Trump's businesses went bankrupt so many times in the 1990s that many legitimate banks wouldn’t lend to him anymore. He turned to Russian oligarchs — Putin’s ruling clique — to bankroll his projects, and launder their dirty money for them. This was, and continues to be, a huge part of his business. He’s a Russian money launderer.

"We don’t rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia." Donald Trump JR, 2014 This isn’t speculation or hyperbole. There's mountains of evidence. Trump’s former election campaign Chairman, Paul Manafort, has deep ties to Russian oligarchs, and is currently in jail awaiting trial on, among other charges, money laundering!

Here are 5 more top facts everyone should know about Trump's long collusion with Russian organised criminals — forward this email and share it on Facebook — we all deserve to know the truth:

Share on Facebook

1 Trump’s main financial backer for the Trump Tower Toronto was a Russian-Canadian billionaire who got the money by selling a massive steel mill in Ukraine for nearly a billion dollars. $ 100 million of that money was paid to a Kremlin-backed fixer, likely as a bribe to VERY high Russian officials. The Chairman of the Bank who financed the deal? Vladimir Putin.

2 Trump bought his home in Palm Beach, Florida for $ 41 million. A few years later, with no real increase in the value — he sold it for $ 95 million — the most expensive home in America at the time! Why? A major Russian oligarch bought it — we don’t know yet why he effectively ‘gave’ Trump $ 54 million. But it’s classic money laundering practice.

3 Trump's real estate deals were often fuelled by Russian money, typically passed through shady shell companies. 77% of Trump Soho apartments were bought with cash by such mysterious companies. At least 13 people with links to Russian oligarchs or mobsters lived in Trump properties, including one of Russia's top mobsters. One even ran a high-stakes illegal gambling ring in the apartment right below Trump's!

"Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets" Donald Trump JR, 2008

4 Trump’s financial broker and “Senior Advisor” was a Russian convicted felon named Felix Sater, widely known as a mafia figure who once stabbed someone in the face with a broken margarita glass, requiring over 100 stitches. Sater helped set up shell companies, and arranged funding for Trump’s projects, including plans for Trump Tower Moscow. He’s also part of Putin’s inner circle. Here’s one email he wrote to Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen in November, 2015:

"Michael I arranged for Ivanka to sit in Putins private chair at his desk and office in the Kremlin. I will get Putin on this program and we will get Donald elected. We both know no one else knows how to pull this off without stupidity or greed getting in the way. I know how to play it and we will get this done. Buddy our boy can become President of the USA and we can engineer it. I will get all of Putins team to buy in on this, I will." New York Times, August 27, 2017

5 Trump’s other main business is casinos — which are classic money laundering vehicles. One of his casinos was 100 times found in violation of federal rules protecting against money laundering, and paid the largest fine ever levied against a casino for having “willfully violated” anti-money laundering rules. Trump has a legal obligation to do “due diligence” for all his businesses to prevent laundering. His senior executive’s comment on this was “Donald doesn’t do diligence”.

The Big Picture Putin is a former KGB officer who has used chemical weapons, assassinated people in other countries, invaded the Ukraine, occupied Crimea, shot down the MH17 airliner with almost 300 passengers on board, aided a murderous regime in Syria, condoned the beating and torture of gays, stolen up to $ 200 billion from his own people, hacked foreign elections and launched what NATO calls the largest hybrid warfare campaign in history to undermine western liberal democracies. He is also widely believed to have ordered the murder of Russian journalists and critics, and bombed hundreds of Russian civilians to fake a terrorist attack and justify a war in Chechnya.

Yet when asked at their press conference if Trump had any criticism of Putin, he had none, and ridiculed US law enforcement for investigating Russian attacks on US democracy! Why? Trump has been working for Putin's corrupt inner circle for almost 20 years. And it's that corrupt circle that promises to make him rich for the next 20 (he's refused, in violation of all ethics, to divest from his businesses as President).

Trump may be a Russian intelligence asset, he may have colluded with Putin to sabotage the US election. But what is clear is that he is a corrupt Russian money launderer, in the pocket of a KGB dictator. The whole world needs to know this, and rally together to prevent the damage this corrupt alliance threatens. Share this email with everyone…

PS — scroll down for a TON of credible, trustworthy, fact-checked sources for everything in this email. Avaaz isn't one of those absurd troll publications that slings lies for profit — we're a nonprofit, and every time we make an error anywhere, we publish the correction on our accuracy page, linked from the front of our website.

PPS — if Trump the 'organized criminal money launderer' sounds like a stretch to you, consider it just the tip of the iceberg of Trump's known corruption:

His 'charitable foundation' is likely to be shut down for multiple examples of fraud. Trump 'University' scammed legions of vulnerable people out of their money. He had an affair with a pornstar and paid her to keep quiet — she says she was also threatened with physical violence. His ex-wife attested in court documents that he brutally raped her while tearing out her hair after he didn't like the hair replacement doctor she recommended. He bragged, on tape, about sexually assaulting multiple women. Hundreds of people hired by Trump say he simply decided not to pay them for their work — including dishwashers, painters and waiters, some of whom were making minimum wage. He has been sued, and forced to pay out settlements, over a hundred times. Trump is not a devil — he's a human being, and like all people he has positive qualities and legitimate views. But anyone who denies that he is deeply corrupt, isn't looking at the facts. To understand Trump, and protect our world from him, we need to understand his corruption.
