    by Debra Heine   In a series of interviews Thursday, “Ultra MAGA” Pennsylvania senatorial candidate Kathy Barnette attempted to clear the air after her campaign came under attack for not being transparent about her background. After her highly praised debate performance on May 4, Barnette surged to a statistical three-way tie with Republicans David McCormick and the Trump-endorsed Dr. Mehmet Oz in the Republican primary race for the open U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania. During the debate, Barnette revealed that she was a product of rape, and her mother was only 11 years old when she was conceived. “I was not just a lump of cells, as you can see, I’m still not just a lump of cells​. My life has value and that is one of the reasons why it was very disturbing when I saw Mehmet Oz running for this particular race when I’ve seen him on numerous occasions and specifically at the ​’​Breakfast Club​’ saying that my life was nothing more than an acorn with electrical currents​,” Barnette said. ​”I am wondering if the good doctor has now since changed...
    Droves of voters in Pennsylvania’s Republican U.S. Senate primary are reportedly switching their votes from Kathy Barnette back to businessman David McCormick just days before the primary election. Barnette recently surged ahead of McCormick and Mehmet Oz in the polls last week after her debate performance and a viral video about her birth being the product of her mother’s rape. However, it seems Barnette’s strides are not enough to carry voters to the finish line with her. Barnette’s supporters are seemingly switching their support back to McCormick, who held an early lead over both candidates before former President Donald Trump’s endorsement of Oz thrust him to the top of the pack. McCormick went into the final weekend of the primary election season with a narrow lead above Barnette and Oz. After McCormick held an event at a winery in Altoona, Pennsylvania, some attendees walked away supporting him over Barnette, according to the Washington Examiner. Karen and Scott Schraff, owners of the winery, were admittedly looking towards Barnette but hosted McCormick to hear more from him. Miriam Schneider, who considered voting...
    Pennsylvania Republican U.S. Senate candidate Carla Sands attacked opponent Kathy Barnette by calling her Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s “favorite candidate.” “Kathy Barnette is Chuck Shumer’s favorite candidate in the Pa Senate race!” Sands tweeted on Saturday. Kathy Barnette is Chuck Shumer’s favorite candidate in the Pa Senate race! — Carla Sands (@CarlaHSands) May 14, 2022 Sands’ hit against Barnette comes after Barnette’s campaign plateaued following a brief surge that put her within striking distance of Dr. Mehmet Oz. Her star power began to steadily rise with conservatives and the MAGA Trump base after she released her powerful video in which she decried abortion by citing her own beginnings as a child conceived in rape when her mother was just age 11. “I’m the byproduct of rape. My mother was eleven when I was conceived,” she tweeted. “In the world the Left desires, I would never have been born. We need leaders with a steady hand to direct our nation through these difficult discussions.” I’m the byproduct of rape. My mother was eleven when I was conceived. In the world the...
    CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) — Republican Senate hopeful Mehmet Oz is stepping up his criticism of far-right candidates in Pennsylvania who are gaining traction ahead of Tuesday’s primary election. After spending much of the campaign steering clear of fellow Republican Senate contender Kathy Barnette, Oz on Saturday said she was out of step with the GOP and would be unable to win the general election in November. In an interview, he took issue with a 2015 tweet from Barnette in which she wrote that “Pedophilia is a Cornerstone of Islam.” Oz, who would be the nation’s first Muslim senator, described the comments as “disqualifying.” “It’s reprehensible that she would tweet out something that is defamatory to an entire religion,” Oz told The Associated Press. “This state was based on religious freedom. I’m proud as a Pennsylvanian to uphold those founding beliefs that every faith has its merits.” The Barnette campaign did not respond to a request for comment. Earlier in the week, Barnette told NBC News that she did not make the statement, which was still live on her Twitter feed on Saturday. For months,...
    Kathy Barnette is locked in a tight three-way Republican Senate primary race. Voters in Pennsylvania will head to the polls on Tuesday, May 17 Republican Pennsylvania Senate candidate Kathy Barnette blasted the GOP on Saturday for 'picking' candidates that 'suck at telling' the party's story. The military veteran is running in a highly competitive three-way race against businessman David McCormick and television personality Dr. Mehmet Oz - the latter of whom has had a narrow lead in some polls after clinching Donald Trump's critical endorsement.  Speaking in Bucks County, Pennsylvania alongside gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano - who like Oz has secured Trump's endorsement - Barnett slammed McCormick and Oz as 'globalists' who did not really believe the ex-president's America First agenda. Journalists were reportedly barred from entering the event, but an audio recording was obtained by CNN.  Oz took Barnette to task that same day over unearthed tweets making xenophobic and homophobic comments, including one 2015 post where she declared 'pedophilia is a cornerstone of Islam.' 'I think it’s disqualifying to make Islamophobic and homophobic comments, not just for the...
    Pennsylvania Senate candidate Kathy Barnette on Saturday released a DD-214 showing the initial months of her active duty Army service, amid scrutiny of her past statements that she served 10 years in the Armed Forces. Barnette posted the DD-214 on Twitter, after nearly a week of questions from reporters trying to vet her record and asking for that specific document, which raised questions over whether the surging candidate was ready for a general election in November. The DD-214 shows the first few months of her military career in 1990 — which would be basic training and advanced individual training for her military occupational specialty (MOS), which at that time was administrative specialist.

Kurt Schlicter, who is backing Barnette’s opponent David McCormick in the race, told Breitbart News after viewing the DD-214 that Barnette released, “There’s nothing that jumps out at me that’s usual about this.” Barnette only last week released her NGB-22, which is the equivalent of a DD-214, but for Army National...
    The New York Post Editorial Board published an article calling on Republican voters in Pennsylvania to reject Senate candidate Kathy Barnette. Titled “Pennsylvania GOP voters should kick Kathy Barnette to the curb“the New York Post Editorial Board criticized the candidate’s electability in the general election, beginning by remarking, “Keystone State Republican voters should think twice before pulling the lever for Kathy Barnette.” The article asserted that “the very factors that propelled her rise in the primary would kneecap her in the general.” The NY Post Editorial Board writes that GOP contenders Dr. Mehmet Oz and ex-Bridgewater CEO Dave McCormick have done significant damage to one another, putting one another through “the opposition-research wringer,” giving Barnette a chance in the process. The NY Post explains that “Barnette as a late breaker has yet to face the same scrutiny — but will if she’s the nominee.” The NY Post continues, noting that Barnette has begun to receive scrutiny for refusing to concede a House race and for implying that Barack Obama was a Muslim in a tweet. The New York Post continued, pointing...
    David McCormick has taken a narrow lead in the contentious Republican Senate primary race in Pennsylvania, according to an internal tracking survey shared just three days out from election day. The survey, taken by the pro-McCormick super PAC Honor Pennsylvania, showed McCormick up one point over Kathy Barnette and Dr. Mehmet Oz, according to a screenshot of the survey shared by GOP consultant Mark Harris. The survey showed McCormick at 25 percent and Barnette and Oz tied with 24 percent each. Harris noted Oz did not appear favorably among undecided voters while both McCormick and Barnette did. The final 2 nights did see Barnette hitting a plateau. Ozs image has degraded throughout the week while Dave’s saw a marginal improvement. It’s a close three way race where every vote will matter. pic.twitter.com/iqI9yb3AwX — Mark Davin Harris (@markdharris) May 14, 2022 The survey comes after Barnette saw a last-minute and unexpected spike in support following the most recent Senate primary debate, in which she revealed in a compelling story that she was a product of rape and that her mother had her at...
    Donald Trump is not happy about the shape of the Republican Senate primary in Pennsylvania. His fame and celebrity thirst led him to endorse TV star Dr. Mehmet Oz, an accomplished surgeon who gave it all up for the easy cash of peddling snake oil. But now it looks like Oz may lose his primary, dealing an embarrassing blow to Trump's fragile ego. Worse, Oz may not even lose to the generic Republican candidate, David McCormick, a walking MAGA-hat whose bland white guy looks can pass as "normal" to low-info swing voters. (I like to call this "pulling a Glenn Youngkin.") No, the surging candidate is Kathy Barnette, a hard-right commentator and crank in the style of Christine O'Donnell or Todd Akin — in other words, weird enough to pull in national attention, but with extreme views that could sink her in a general election race. "Kathy Barnette will never be able to win the General Election against the Radical Left Democrats," Trump ranted in a statement released Thursday. He complained that she "has many things in her...
    The national pro-life Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) and its affiliate Women Speak Out PAC announced Friday the launch of a digital ad campaign to support Kathy Barnette in the Pennsylvania Republican U.S. Senate primary race. The campaign is part of an overall $2.3 million the pro-life groups will spend to defeat presumed Democrat nominee John Fetterman, current Pennsylvania lieutenant governor, who recently referred to abortion as a “sacred” right. “Kathy Barnette is a courageous advocate for life with a deeply compelling personal story,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser in a statement announcing the ad buy. The pro-life leader said Fetterman is allied with the “Biden-Schumer Democrats who are pushing to impose abortion on demand up to birth nationwide.” Fetterman recently tweeted his support for the Democrats’ failed bill that would have eradicated pro-life state laws and forced doctors to perform abortions even though the procedure to end the life of an unborn child violates their faith beliefs. Lets be clear: The right to an abortion is sacred. Democrats have to act quickly – get rid of the filibuster to...
    KATHY Barnette's controversial moments are being brought to light just days before the May 17 primary, as she made a shocking admission during a recent primary debate against Dr Mehmet Oz. Barnette, a Republican, is a candidate for the US Senate, representing Pennsylvania. Her sudden ascent has leveled the playing field in what was largely regarded as a two-person race between Oz and Dave McCormick. 2Oz is running against Barnette to represent Pennsylvania in the US SenateCredit: Getty Images - Getty 2Barnette's controversial past tweets are being called into question days before the primaryCredit: Getty Images - Getty Barnette's sudden rise has also gained the attention of several notable Republicans, including Former President Trump, who has publicly endorsed Oz. "Kathy Barnette will never be able to win the General Election against the Radical Left Democrats," Trump said on May 12.

    REPUBLICAN Kathy Barnette is running for a Pennsylvania Senate seat for the first time in her career. Considered to be a far-right conservative, Barnette's policies have earned her support from voters. 2Kathy Barnette is running for the Pennsylvania Senate seat Who is Kathy Barnette? Kathy Barnette is a 50-year-old mother of two and tells a rags-to-riches story of growing up as the daughter of a rape victim. Speaking about her policy against abortion in a campaign video, Barnette said her mother gave birth to her when she was only 12 years old, adding, “It wasn’t a choice. It was a life. My life." Barnette grew up in an impoverished household that had "no insulation, no running water, an outhouse in the back, and a well on the side," her official website says. Despite her living situation, Barnette went on to become the first person in her family to graduate from college and earned both her Bachelor's and Master's degrees in finance. She enlisted in the Armed Forces Reserves for 10 years following which she got a finance job working for A.G....
    Pennsylvania U.S. Senate Candidate Kathy Barnette (R) denied tweeting “Pedophilia is a Cornerstone of Islam” during an interview with MSNBC on Thursday, despite the existence of such a post on her blue checkmark account. “Yeah, no, I don’t think that’s me,” Barnette replied when NBC’s Dasha Burns read the tweet aloud. “Okay, I would have never said that, because I don’t believe that.” Pedophilia is a Cornerstone of Islam ⋆ UFP NEWS http://t.co/PmuXZE7h80 — Kathy Barnette (@Kathy4Truth) April 10, 2015 Republican strategist Matt Wolking, who works for one of Barnette’s competitors Dave McCormick, posted the interaction to Twitter, criticizing the senate hopeful for denying the existence of an easily-findable tweet. “Asked about her own tweet, Kathy Barnette says “I don’t think that’s me.” This is what a dishonest train wreck looks like,” Wolking said.  Asked about her own tweet, Kathy Barnette says "I dont think thats me."

    Pennsylvania Senate candidate Kathy Barnette denied claiming that pedophilia was the 'cornerstone of Islam' on Thursday despite the fact that the tweets are still posted on her personal Twitter account.  Barnette has a slew of anti-Islam tweets from between 2015 and 2017, many of which claim that former President Barack Obama is a 'Muslim' and at least one of which calls for the religion to be banned in the U.S.  In an interview with NBC, Barnette was asked flatly about a 2015 tweet on her account that reads: 'Pedophilia is the cornerstone of Islam.' 'Yeah, no, I don't think that's me. I would never have said that. Okay, I would have never said that, because I don't believe that,' Barnette said.  Barnette will face off against Dr. Mehmet Oz and hedge fund executive David McCormick in a primary on Tuesday.   'Moderate Muslim = Radical Muslim!' Barnette wrote on Twitter in 2014.  'Just confronted a Muslim today,' she announced in 2016 on Twitter.   In a 2015 tweet, Barnette wrote of Muslims: 'They r animals & we must stop interacting with them...
    Host Alex Marlow begins today’s podcast with the vetting of Kathy – Kathy Barnette that is. The outsider candidate is in a three-way dogfight in the Pennsylvania GOP Senate primary, but she has been mostly unvetted up to this point, despite the fact that election day is next week. Donald Trump, who has endorsed one of her opponents (Dr. Oz), has warned that if she wins the primary the Democrats will be very excited about the general election. President Trump is probably correct here; but it is, of course, a bit ironic for him to say it. Then, Alex gets into the latest on the baby formula shortage crisis. There are reports that pallets of baby formula are being sent to our southern border, which is essentially a subsidy to the cartels who smuggle children to America. Mind you, we can’t even get enough formula to American stores. And that isn’t the only supply chain crisis we’re seeing. Intravenous contrast solution, which is necessary for all sorts of medical functions, is now in short supply, and our dependence on China...
    As Pennsylvania Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kathy Barnette’s popularity is increasing ahead of next week’s primary, Democrats are reportedly “salivating at the prospect of facing Barnette in the general election.” Barnette has thrust into the top three candidates after her performance in last month’s debate, and a recent clip explaining her birth being the product of her mother’s rape at age 11 went viral. Recent polls show the race is a statistical tie between Barnette, Dave McCormick, and Mehmet Oz, who has the blessings of former President Donald Trump. However, after recent questions about Barnette’s military service surfaced and controversial tweets were unearthed, Democrats are “salivating at the prospect” of facing Barnette in November, according to the Daily Beast. “I’m sure many of us are hoping she sustains it and wins. Because she’s certainly — [it] would be very tough to elect her,” said T.J. Rooney, the former head of Pennsylvania’s Democrat Party. “If somehow she wins the nomination, we will see through the course of the campaign, she simply doesn’t have ideas that match our state’s values. She just doesn’t,” said Rep. Madeleine...
    The following article is sponsored by Dave McCormick for U.S. Senate and authored by Sean Parnell. In the final weeks of the Senate campaign, Kathy Barnette has taken to campaigning with the phrase, “I am you, Pennsylvania.” But as her candidacy ascends in recent polls, we have to ask ourselves: what do we really know about Kathy Barnette? Renowned Pennsylvania reporter, Saleno Zito, couldn’t even get basic information out of Barnette and her campaign this week. Barnette’s campaign refused to supply information on when she was accepted into military Officer Candidate School, or when she moved here from Virginia (which she claimed was her residency in a book published in 2020). She refuses to release her DD214 from her time in the Army Reserves. As a combat veteran, I can say those of us who served may be hesitant to describe the details of our experience, but we are universally proud of our service and willing to answer basic questions about it. She has released her NGB 22 form pertaining to her National Guard service, and I am grateful for...
    Pennsylvania Senate candidate Kathy Barnette said the 'knives are coming out' against her as she's shot up in the polls after former President Trump called her past into question.  As underdog Barnette has shot up in popularity to just behind Trump-endorsed Dr. Mehmet Oz and ahead of hedge fund executive David McCormick by some polls, members of the media began to ask 'Who is Kathy Barnette?' as a Washington Examiner piece published Thursday was entitled.  Trump, not one for losing, launched an attack on Barnette.   'Kathy Barnette will never be able to win the General Election against the Radical Left Democrats,' Trump said in a Thursday afternoon statement.  'She has many things in her past which have not been properly explained or vetted, but if she is able to do so, she will have a wonderful future in the Republican Party—and I will be behind her all the way.'  All but one of Trump's endorsements have won their primary so far-- Nebraska GOP Gov. candidate Charles Herbster lost after he faced groping allegations from eight women.  During Trump's rally in Greensburg,...
    Less than a week before Pennsylvania’s Senate race, a new but controversial candidate has emerged. Known as a regular on Fox News, Kathy Barnette is quickly rising in the polls for Pennsylvania’s Republican primary. But this isn’t just a worrisome issue for Democrats; many Republicans believe that should she win the primary, they might lose retiring Pat Toomey’s seat. According to Bloomberg, Barnette gained popularity for not only her extremist conservative views but her revelation of being the product of a sexual assault, which she has used to express her strong anti-abortion rights views. In addition to this, she has been a strong advocate for the “Stop the Steal” movement, organizing multiple rallies including buses to attend the Jan. 6 failed coup at the Capitol. Oddly enough, while she gained much of her popularity through her involvement in Donald Trump’s debunked stolen election theory, Trump himself doesn’t support her. Trump released a statement on Twitter criticizing Barnette, saying she “will never be able to win the General Election against the Radical Left Democrats.” “She has many things in her past which...
    This Tuesday, May 17, two major GOP primary elections will be held in Pennsylvania: one for governor, one for the U.S. Senate seat presently held by conservative Republican Sen. Pat Toomey, who isn’t seeking reelection. And in the Senate primary, an unexpected development has been the last-minute surge of far-right candidate Kathy Barnette — who, according to polls, is now within striking distance of the frontrunner, Dr. Mehmet Oz. Former President Donald Trump has endorsed Oz, who, in the past, was a moderate conservative along the lines of the late Sen. John McCain and former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge but is now jumping through hoops to show how MAGA he is — including railing against Dr. Anthony Fauci in his buffoonish ads. Barnette, however, is claiming that Oz is really a liberal in disguise and that she is the true MAGA Republican in the primary. And that messaging may be working with Republican primary voters; a Fox News poll released on Tuesday, May 10 found Oz only 3% ahead of Barnette and 2% ahead of candidate David McCormick. As ultra-MAGA...
