Did Raimondo steal the election?

 


What the hell happened? For the past four years Governor Gina Raimondo has polled around 42% and lower in public approval ratings. This past spring and summer Raimondo remained in the low 40's and retained a small lead over Cranston Mayor Fung. For the past three months Raimondo has kept a very low profile and remained out of sight when it came to campaigning. There have been no big announcements of good news and the past two months the campaign has been dominated by the circus distraction of the Trillo fake campaign. The Governor only participated in two televised debates and was basically a robot repeating talking points. So how does Raimondo go from 40% and 131,000 votes in 2014 to 52% and 197,000 votes four years later? Raimondo has been polling around 42%, but jumps up to 52% in two months? Impossible. 





Mayor Fung received 20,000 more votes than he received in 2014 and kept Trillo at 15,000 moronic voters and 4%. Bob Healey received 69,000 votes in 2014 and received 22% of the vote. So how did Gina Raimondo receive 70,000 more votes than she received in 2014? Raimondo remains the most hated and cannot march in a parade or attend an event without being booed. If we are to believe these numbers, Raimondo retained all her votes from 2014 plus gained 70,000 new votes. The entire population of Cranston is 70,000. No way. The Raimondo campaign spent $5 million on negative ads attacking Mayor Fung plus gave Trillo $100,000 for three mailers. Raimondo will be the President of the Democrat Governors Association and desperately wanted to be above 50%. 




"Emergency/early" voting began this year on October 18, with no ID needed and an "X" is accepted as a signature. This story is developing but Raimondo spent huge campaign money on an organized, expensive paid"ground game" that included over 40 paid staff back in May. A failed Governor found 70,000 new voters? No way. We shall see. Listen to the John DePetro Show for all the details.

Will Rhode Island choose Fung or Raimondo?

 


Mayor Fung




This is it. And then there were two. On Tuesday, will Rhode Island choose Mayor Fung or Governor Gina Raimondo? The past four years have proven to be an unmitigated disaster  under the worst Governor the state has ever seen with Queena Raimondo. Raimondo has been the Fundraiser in chief and used the state as a pit stop on her way to her next city to raise money. 


no American flag pin


pure evil

The Raimondo Reign of Error has been one mistake after another with lame excuses and promises of moving forward. If you think the past four years were bad, wait until 2022 to see if you still are living in Rhode Island or recognize Rhode Island. Gina plans to bring in the caravan of illegals making their way up from Mexico and welcome them to Rhode Island. Get ready for more drugs, rapes, disease and violent crime to settle between Westerly to Woonsocket.


here they come


 Gina also plans to make Rhode Island the state with the strictest gun laws and give drivers licenses to all illegals. Gina wants illegals to vote and be eligible for all state assistance. Raimondo has shown her disdain for the American flag and her disdain for police and military. Rhode Island will become more of a welfare state with higher taxes and violent crime.



vote Fung


 Rhode Island could move in a new direction by voting for Cranston Mayor Allan Fung. Mayor Fung would keep the state safe and not allow it to become a magnet for violent illegal criminals. Fung has restored pride in Cranston and will restore pride to Rhode Island. Governor Fung will lower taxes, improve schools and bring high paying jobs to Rhode Island. Mayor Fung is a leader who would stop Rhode Island from being the laughing stock of New England and restore pride and dignity back to a state of hard working people.


team Gina



 Mayor Fung has shown the ability to work with others and cares about the all of the people in the state, not just the liberal progressives on the East Side. Mayor Fung has also shown himself to be a fighter with the dirty tricks of the Raimondo campaign and others conspiring against him. Lower taxes, high paying jobs, better schools and families sticking together. Vote Fung to bring back Rhode Island the way it used to be. 



Is Gina Raimondo the Hillary of Rhode Island?

 


Never have the people of Rhode Island hated an elected leader as much as people loath  Governor Gina Raimondo. Gina, who has been in hiding for the past 7 weeks, has proven to be possibly the slimiest public official the state has ever seen. Raimondo has proven to be an ego maniac who travels the country raising money for herself while telling lies about her term in office. 




While 25 children died under her care in DCYF, Gina sipped white wine in Silicon Valley. While thousands of people went without food or benefits under the disaster of UHIP, Gina raised money for herself in New York. Never has the state seen such a selfish Governor who only cares about herself and frowns on the "little people." Raimondo has also surrounded herself with the most arrogant, obnoxious group of entitled brats the state house has ever seen. Raimondo, who often brags she is the smartest person to ever come out of Rhode Island, has a Hillary Clinton quality to her which is sneaky and unlikable. Will Gina suffer the same fate Hillary did on election day? Listen to the John DePetro radio show for all the details.

Will Trillo and Raimondo beat Fung?

 


 I think we can all stop pretending this race is anything but two against one, or "two against Fung." Only a naive simpleton would truly believe Joe Trillo is in this to win with his campaign platform of "I hate Fung so vote for me you pansy." Trillo promised to beat the 22% that Cool Moose Bob Healey received in 2014, yet fails to mention Healey lost and came in third.



PROJO

 During this campaign, Gina Raimondo has never criticized Joe Trillo, has not run one negative ad against Trillo or lumped him in with Trump. Trillo admitted to the Providence Journal he is only in the race to help Gina win and prevent Fung from winning. The Governor refuses to debate Fung one on one in a debate and insisted in the last debate Joe Trillo stay in the race. Trillo has manufactured some unknown venom towards Mayor Fung but none of it is rational or seemingly justified. Trillo supported Fung in 2014 for Governor and nothing remarkable has happened between them since November 2014 and December of 2017 when Trillo jumped independent.



 There is a long list of issues which Joe Trillo could slam Raimondo but he stays on his  message of slamming Mayor Fung. In reality, if Trillo ran the media attention campaign he has been running he may have won a four way Republican primary this year. But instead, he seems content to just disrupt and muddy the political water. Certain political commentators commend Gina for "staying out of the mud with Trillo and Fung" but she is not the one being attacked. If you were walking down the street and a mugger jumped on your back and you start rolling in mud on the ground to defend yourself, than I guess technically you are rolling in the mud fighting. Would a reasonable person say," you must have done something to upset that mugger?" 



Queena



 What is incredible is the line of thinking that "Fung must have really upset Trillo," or " poor Pat Morgan must have been really treated poorly by the Republican party." What if they were not? What if Fung did nothing to upset Trillo and Morgan was not treated poorly or unfairly by the GOP? What if the effort to defeat Fung and help Gina had other motivations? 




Governor Gina Raimondo is no dummy, and she knew last October she could not win without the help of a third party. We will see what happens on November 6. Follow the election by listening to the John DePetro Radio Show.

Raimondo and Elorza turn Providence into a sanctuary city for child molesters and child rapist

 


The sanctuary city of Providence for illegal aliens becomes the sanctuary city for child rapist. Neighbors in the Washington Park section of Providence were stunned to find that not only is convicted child rapist Richard Gardner now living in their family neighborhood but that Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza will provide Gardner with two (24/7) taxpayer funded Providence police bodyguards.







Richard Gardner 


 Gardner spent 30 years behind bars and has chosen Providence as his new home due to the lawlessness created by Raimondo and Elorza. 






Raimondo has an extreme progressive liberal agenda which limits police ability to enforce the law, and has endorsed Mayor Elorza.  Elorza runs a sanctuary city, wants to abolish ICE, allows panhandling and has proceeded to run Providence into the ground. Would Gina Raimondo have this sick monster living near her on the East Side? Raimondo has not improved public education and is responsible for the deaths of 19 children under her care in DCYF over the past two years. 




Elorza has watched schools crumble and the city just finished a two week bus strike which resulted in children unable to get to school and 8 school buses torched by disgruntled union members.  Now a convicted child rapist moves into a neighborhood and is supplied with two police bodyguards. Follow the John DePetro radio show for the latest.

Trillo tornado takes over the 2018 election






 If Independent candidate for Governor Joe Trillo was looking to make his mark in Rhode Island politics he has succeeded. When Trillo announced he was running for Governor he claimed running as an Independent would "unchain him" from party politics and that has proven to be the understatement of the decade. Never has a candidate polling so low(7% in a poll by WPRI) made such headlines with issues completely unrelated to policy and discussion  surrounding the election. First it was the yacht crashing, then the Narragansett sign, then the  Morgan endorsement and now the "Caulk gun" police report. 



With four weeks to go, the question remained whether Trillo was running to win or running to just prevent Mayor Fung from winning? With three weeks to go, Trillo apparently answered that question when he told the Projo he would "take 2%" if it meant stopping Fung. That is not exactly a path to victory. Trillo and Patricia Morgan have come under vicious attack on social media from voters who are already pointing the finger at them if Raimondo wins. 




Gina has spent $6 million dollars yet Fung remains within striking distance of victory. Raimondo was warned by political consultants last fall she would lose in a one on one against Fung, and now the Raimondo campaign is panicked that is exactly how the race is shaping up. The more Trillo receives negative headlines, the better it is for Fung and worse it becomes for Raimondo. Fung has aggressively been touting a" vote for Trillo is a vote for Gina" and it seems to be taking hold. 




The path to victory for Raimondo is contingent on Trillo remaining a viable candidate and receiving 7-10% of the vote. After reading the Cranston police report, that 10% seems in doubt if not impossible. If Fung bumps up just 5%, the difference with Gina becomes the margin of error in the polls. 



11% remain undecided, but 80% of undecideds traditionally break for the challenger. In the next two weeks if Trillo drops below 5%, the race could be a virtual tie between Fung and Raimondo. Raimondo has invested tremendous resources on GOTV but the voter feeling of "Anyone but Gina" could be hard to overcome. On November 6, will voters really want to give Gina Raimondo another four years as Governor? 



Gina prays Trillo can get 10%


The Trillo circus has been a welcomed distraction for Governor Raimondo  from the horrendous incompetent job she has done as Governor, making her one of the least popular governors in the country. Trillo has distracted from the empty Superman building, loss of the Pawsox, broken campaign promises, non-stop traveling for fundraising,her Progressive agenda and insider deals. On November 6, the voters will decide if they want four more long years of Raimondo. To find out what is really happening, listen to the John DePetro Radio show.

Senator Sheldon "Chardonnay" Whitehouse campaign in panic mode


or a Beer with Bob


The campaign of Rhode Island Senator Sheldon "Chardonnay" Whitehouse is suddenly in panic mode after what has been viewed as a disastrous three weeks. Whitehouse is still reeling from becoming a national punchline after his questioning of Brett Kavanaugh during the Senate Judiciary hearings. Whitehouse has been mocked on Saturday Night Live and now South Park. 



Around the country and around Rhode Island, Sheldon as become an embarrassment asking Kavanaugh about  yearbooks and farting. Momentum has shifted as Republican Bob Flanders has been gaining traction and receiving donations from around the country as Sheldon as now seen on shaky ground. 






Rhode Island royalty

 Whitehouse has watched his lead in the campaign plummet with Independent voters and especially among male voters. Flanders has seen tremendous growth across the spectrum but has rocketed  among Independent male voters. Will Sheldon apologize to Judge Kavanaugh and his family for the filthy smear campaign they unleashed on him? Will Sheldon reveal who was the reporter he was trying to leak fake accusations too?
