  • Kamala Harris: Documents (a British subject)?

    Monday, January 21, 2019, California Senator Kamala Devi Harris announced her candidacy for the 2020 Presidential election. Outstanding questions pertaining to her candidacy include her eligibility for this office. The US Constitution specifies only a "natural born" US citizen may hold this post. Definitions of that term, according to the intent of the writers of the Constitution, as well as some later court rulings, indicate this means "born to two US citizen parents." The requirement was intended so that only someone with undivided loyalties to the US, someone not with possible divided loyalties to other nations, could assume the title...

    Will the real populist please stand up? In an odd and occasionally eye-popping 57-second campaign launch video, Kamala Harris announced her intention to seek the Democratic presidential nomination “for the people.” After only two years in the Senate, Harris might be the early frontrunner for the ticket: I'm running for president. Let's do this together. Join us: https://t.co/9KwgFlgZHA pic.twitter.com/otf2ez7t1p— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) January 21, 2019 If Elizabeth Warren’s launch video was underproduced, Harris’ has the opposite problem.

    “When my grandmother got here almost a hundred years ago, I’m sure that she never could have imagined that just two generations later, one of her grandsons would be serving as a member of the United States Congress and the other would be standing with you here today to say these words: I am a candidate for president of the United States of America.” Those were the words that Julian Castro delivered to a crowd of supporters in San Antonio a few days ago when he became the latest Democrat to announce his candidacy for the White House. “I’m running...

    California Sen. Kamala Harris announced Monday that she will run for president in 2020, joining an increasingly crowded field of Democrats seeking to challenge President Donald Trump. Harris' announcement, made on "Good Morning America," comes following months of speculation surrounding the Democrat, a rising star in the party who was elected California's junior senator in 2016 after two terms as the state's attorney general. "I love my country. I love my country," she said. "This is a moment in time that I feel a sense of responsibility to stand up and fight for the best of who we are."

    The anti-Trump pussy march dwindled to 10,000 participants this year in Washington DC. This was down from the estimated one-million who turned out for the violent and vulgar march in 2017. Several leaders of this Democrat pussy march continue to endorse anti-Semitic positions. And the co-leader refuses to condemn Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

    Sioux City, Iowa (CNN) — Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand defended her decision to call on former Sen. Al Franken to resign after allegations of unwanted touching and kissing were made against him, earning praise from a friendly audience of Iowans in Sioux City on Friday. Gillibrand, who was first to call on Franken to resign, clearly came prepared to answer questions about the Minnesota Democrat, whose ouster after a series of allegations in 2017 remains a contentious issue for the party. Some on the left, including a number of top Democratic donors, believe Franken was pushed out too quickly, while others...

    Imagine this: A 46-year-old former congresswoman and mother of three, who just lost a Senate bid to one of the most despised incumbents, sets off on a road trip adventure to clear her head. She instagrams part of her trip to the dentist. She gives a two-hour interview to The Washington Post where she shows no real knowledge of policy. Like a first-year college student, she pontificates on whether the Constitution is still a thing that matters after all these many years.

    Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) is blogging from his road trip across the country, writing in his latest post that he has "been stuck lately ... in and out of a funk." O'Rourke, who is mulling a 2020 Democratic presidential bid, is traveling the country after losing to Sen. Ted Cruz (R) last year in the closest Senate race the state has seen in decades. "Have been stuck lately," O'Rourke wrote in a Medium blog post Wednesday, noting that he left Congress early this month. "In and out of a funk. My last day of work was January 2nd." "It’s...
  • Ann Coulter: If Trump Doesn’t Build The Wall He’s Dead, Dead, Dead In 2020

    He is not, not, not. I’ve made that case at length elsewhere but let me add a few points.1. Contra Coulter, Trump’s probably the only major player in the standoff who isn’t dead, dead, dead if he’s the first to extend an olive branch. McConnell is facing reelection in a red state next year and is always viewed suspiciously by the base notwithstanding his work on judicial confirmations. If he buckles and destroys Trump’s leverage he may face a populist revolt in Kentucky. Schumer is viewed similarly suspiciously by the left, a weak leader who won’t fight fight fight...

O'Rourke on President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw US troops from Syria: "There may be a very good reason to do it. I don't necessarily understand -- and I've been a member of Congress for six years." O'Rourke on the Constitution: "I'm hesitant to answer it because I really feel like it deserves its due, and I don't want to give you a -- actually, just selfishly, I don't want a sound bite of it reported, but, yeah,...
  • Julian Castro: Put ankle monitors on illegal immigrants rather than detaining them

    Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro on Sunday said he would prefer to track illegal immigrants using ankle monitors rather than detaining them. The former Obama administration housing chief and former mayor of San Antonio made the comments while discussing how he would deal with the increase in migrant families crossing the southern border illegally, should he win his party's nomination for president in 2020. Castro on Saturday officially launched a 2020 White House bid. "What I believe we could do and what the Obama administration did do, I believe, toward the end of its tenure, was to look at things...

The New York Democrat formed an exploratory committee and will make the presidential announcement on the CBS late-night show before heading to Iowa, sources told the Associated Press.

    At this moment the race for the Democratic nomination in 2020 appears to be completely wide open, but there is one potential candidate lurking in the shadows that could change everything. For a moment, I would like you to imagine what a perfect presidential candidate for the Democrats in 2020 would look like. In this politically correct era, it would help if the candidate was a woman, and it would definitely be a plus if she could appeal to key groups of minority voters. Being a hero to the LGBT community would be important for any Democratic candidate, and it...

    Al Sharpton is being heavily courted by Democrats seeking his endorsement as they pursue the 2020 presidential nomination, but he said he won't make a decision on who he'll support for at least a year. The liberal civil rights activist and MSNBC host has met with a flurry of possible 2020 contenders in recent weeks, including Sens. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.), Cory Booker (D., N.J.), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.), and he's planning to speak soon with former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D., Texas), the Atlantic reported.

    Run, Joe, run. Run because you have strengths that no other Democratic candidate does, including your depth of experience and connection to the Obama presidency. Run because your populist image fits the Democrats’ most successful political strategy of the past generation. Run because you will never have another chance — and because you are not afraid of losing. I get the case against Biden. My colleague Frank Bruni has made it and made it well, as have Vox’s Matthew Yglesias and others. At 76 years old, Biden does not represent an exciting new era. He is an old white guy...
  • Scarborough asks Kamala Harris question that ‘doomed’ Ted Kennedy’s presidential run:

    The Hill ^ | JOHN BOWDEN
    ‘Why would you want to be president?’ Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) has not yet announced a bid for the White House, but on Friday the California senator faced a line of inquiry from MSNBC host Joe Scarborough that he credits with dooming the presidential campaign of former Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.). Speaking on "Morning Joe," Harris was asked by the co-host why she wants to be president — the same question that some historians point to as the end of Kennedy's ill-fated 1980 campaign for the White House. "I want to ask you the Roger Mudd question that he...

    Democrats eyeing bids for the White House also are competing to see who is willing to go the highest in raising taxes. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York liberal who is too young constitutionally to become president, nevertheless set a benchmark when she suggested in a “60 Minutes” interview Sunday that rates for the wealthy could top out at up to 70 percent. Julian Castro, an Obama administration Cabinet official who has announced a testing-the-waters presidential committee, quickly jumped on the bandwagon by telling ABC News that it’s time the wealthy be tapped for their “fair share.”

    Sen. Kamala Harris is finalizing plans to announce her entry into the 2020 presidential race around Martin Luther King Day, multiple outlets reported late Wednesday night citing sources close to the California Democrat. Harris would be the fourth person so far to join the race for the Democratic nomination, though that number is expected to balloon to dozens of candidates by the time campaign season kicks into full swing. Harris and her aides are still working out the final details of her announcement rally, including the date, which could be Martin Luther King Day, Jan. 21, CBS News reported. Advisers...
