  • Tom Steyer Asks DNC Chair Tom Perez for Extra Polling Time to Qualify for Next Debate

    Democrat presidential hopeful and billionaire Tom Steyer has requested a polling window extension in a letter to Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez ahead of the next Democrat presidential debate. When my campaign received the debate criteria for the next DNC debate in Nevada on January 31st, I was extremely disappointed to see that the Committee has narrowed the polling window significantly. The previous two polling windows have been 56-58 days and this recent period window has been cut to 35 days.

    Seven of the 11 Democratic candidates still running for president will take the stage Friday night in Manchester, New Hampshire, for the eighth debate days after a chaotic Iowa caucus. ABC News on Friday morning announced the left-to-right podium order for the candidates: entrepreneur Andrew Yang, former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Minnestoa Sen. Amy Klobuchar and investor Tom Steyer. Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet, former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick failed to qualify.
  • '#CNNIsGarbage': CNN Was so Bad in the Last Democratic Debate That Even Progressives Attacked It

    Ever since their epic failure on a sexual assault story that never happened at the University of Virginia, Rolling Stone magazine is still trying to repair its damaged reputation. They lost a libel suit in that fiasco. The reporter who wrote it has gone into the wilderness, so when you see an RS story—skepticism abounds, right? When it comes to music and movie reviews, Rolling Stone is great, but their political stuff is, well, what you’d expect from a liberal staff. No shocker, but at times—a blind squirrel finds a nut. Tuesday’s Democratic Debate in Iowa hosted by CNN was...

    With just one month left before the Iowa Caucus, Iowa State University is stifling students’ First Amendment rights by prohibiting them from using email to communicate about campaigns and ballot issues. Students are also limited from “chalking,” a tradition of drawing both political and apolitical messages on the sidewalk with chalk.University officials approved an interim policy that restricts chalking on Iowa State’s campus to registered student organizations publicizing upcoming events open to all students. This limits thousands of students from participating in chalking.Speech First, a non-profit advocating for First Amendment rights, filed a lawsuit challenging Iowa State University for their...
  • Andrew Yang Boycotts MSNBC Over Speaking Time At Debate, Demands On-Air Apology

    Of all the candidates at Wednesday night's MSNBC Democratic presidential debate, Andrew Yang spoke the least. Someone had to speak the least, but Yang is upset that it was him. But far be it from me to stick up for MSNBC. In a series of tweets, Yang outlined his grievances against the network. Yang said he was asked by MSNBC to appear on their network this weekend, but Yang told the network he would do so only after his list of demands was met. Yang wants an official on-air apology from the network, he wants his campaign included in discussions,...

    President Trump's three Republican primary challengers will debate on Saturday in Nashville, Tenn., organizers announced. The debate and conversation with former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R), former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) and former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld (R) will take place at 11 a.m. at the Politicon political convention, officials said. "Join Gov. Bill Weld, Gov. Mark Sanford, and Rep. Joe Walsh as they discuss 2020 and the future of the republic. Is President Trump listening?" organizers asked on the convention website. It was not immediately clear whether Trump was invited to the debate. Allies of the president including...

    Tuesday’s Democrat presidential debate was a farce! The one thing it clearly demonstrated was that Tom Perez and his DNC buddies were on to something when they froze Fox News out of their debates. Here are some questions not asked. 1. Joe Biden bragged that he forced the Ukraine government to fire the prosecutor investigating the company that put his son on their board by threatening not to give the Ukraine a billion dollars in loan guarantees. Why didn’t Anderson Cooper ask Biden about his own statement? 2. If the Democrats are so worried about the Ukraine getting its military...
  • WATCH:Biden stumbles over words in debate, references people clipping coupons in the stock market

    Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared to stumble over his words while discussing the economy and taxes on Tuesday night. "Why should someone who's clipping coupons in the stock market may, in fact, pay a lower tax rate than someone who in fact is, like I said, a schoolteacher and a fireman? It's ridiculous," Biden said. Biden made those comments while appearing at the fourth Democratic debate. Biden has long been the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination but is facing a potential challenge Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who has been gaining traction in key states.

    The Republican National Committee should offer to be the official sponsor of a weekly Democratic presidential debate. There would be no better advertisement for President Trump’s re-election. Every time the Democratic presidential contenders gather together, it’s a contest between the merely delusional, the vaguely vindictive and the patently absurd. There are funny moments, like when Andrew Yang risked the ire of the political-correctness police and told us, “I am Asian, so I know a lot of doctors.” There are substantive moments, like when former Vice President Joe Biden reversed himself on China, apparently now agreeing with Mr. Trump that intellectual-property...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden stood at center stage Thursday night, leading in the polls and earning the most attention from ABC’s debate moderators and his rivals alike. But Biden acted less like the front-runner than Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), the candidate emerging as Biden’s chief rival from the progressive wing of the Democratic Party. While many of the other candidates competed for audience attention with practiced zingers and dad jokes, Warren once again set much of the early agenda, defending her "Medicare for All" health care plan and swatting away the few attacks that came her way.

    On Thursday night the Democrat Party held a presidential primary debate in Houston, Texas. Ten candidates qualified for the debate. The Democrats did all they could to be noticed in the crowded field. Three candidates went that extra mile to get noticed and brought their own booster boxes. Julian Castro, Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar all stood on booster boxes to look tall. The Democrat Party and their socialist policies are all smoke and mirrors.

    by Samantha Connor He went there. Former HUD Secretary Julian Castro took a shot Thursday at Joe Biden, accusing the former VP of flip-flopping on health care -- and then basically suggested that Biden was senile, leaving the crowd shocked. “The difference between what I support and what you support, Vice President Biden, is that you require them to opt in, and I would not require them to opt in. They would automatically be enrolled, they wouldn’t have to buy in,” Castro said to Biden.“You do not have to buy in,” Biden responds.“Are you forgetting what you said two...

    HOUSTON — Democratic debate night No. 3: Attacks and counter-attacks. Love for one former president, loathing for the current one. A 76-year-old front-runner essentially got called old, and he turned around and called another rival a "socialist." But will it change the fundamentals of a nominating fight that remains remarkably stable at the top with five months until voting begins? Here's a look at some takeaways and potential answers: The third Democratic debate seemed to end in a 10-way tie. Former Vice President Joe Biden was sure-footed (until the end), at least for him and compared with the previous two...

    In the most contentious Democratic debate thus far, a winnowed field of 10 Democratic candidates took the stage in Houston Thursday night and sparred over hot-button issues such as health care and immigration. Notably, this was the first time that frontrunners Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden shared the debate stage. At the end of the night, Joe Biden emerged as the winner and Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders were the surprise losers.

    An advertisement showing the image of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bursting into flames aired during ABC's Democratic debate in Houston on Thursday, prompting a heated response from viewers. The 30-second ad, from a Republican-affiliated PAC named New Faces GOP, features its founder Elizabeth Heng, a former GOP congressional candidate in California, warning about liberal politicians who embrace socialism. "This is the face of socialism and ignorance," Heng says as a photo of Ocasio-Cortez catches fire and burns away to show harrowing images from the Cambodian Civil War in the 1970s from which her father fled. "Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez know the horrors...

    President Trump’s reelection campaign will be flying a banner attacking socialism in Houston on Thursday, shortly before Democratic presidential candidates take the debate stage there. An official with the campaign told ABC News that the group plans to fly a banner that reads, "Socialism will kill Houston's economy,” from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. The third Democratic presidential debate is scheduled to begin an hour later. The campaign also plans to take out two full-page advertisements in local newspapers taking aim at Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), former Vice President Joe Biden and former Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Julián...
