    2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said this week that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, is likely being groomed by Moscow as a third-party candidate for the 2020 race. In an interview on the podcast of former Obama campaign manager David Plouffe, Clinton expressed her concerns about possible Russian interference in 2020. “They’re also going to do third-party again,” Clinton said. “I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on someone who’s currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of...
  • Beto O'Rourke to MSNBC: Trump's rhetoric 'perhaps inspired by Goebbels'

    President Trump's dishonest political rhetoric may have been inspired by Adolf Hitler's notorious propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels, 2020 presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke said in a bold claim during a Sunday TV interview. O'Rourke made the remarks on MSNBC's "PoliticsNation." "President Trump, perhaps inspired by Goebbels and the propagandists of the Third Reich, seems to employ this tactic that the bigger the lie, the more obscene the injustice, the more dizzying the pace of this bizarre behavior, the less likely we are to be able to do something about it," he said.

    There are fresh battles lines in the 2020 presidential campaign, reflecting an unpredictable rivalry between two Democratic politicians — one who isn’t even running this cycle and another who is polling at barely 1 percent. Hillary Clinton suggested this week that current primary contender Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii is being used by the Russians, ...
  • Tulsi Gabbard, Jill Stein, And Hillary Clinton’s Greatest Fear

    In case you just woke up from a four day coma, the weekend’s news cycle was dominated by an over-the-top intra-Democratic Party dispute between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard. Gabbard, a noted non-interventionist who, like President Trump, isn’t fond of the idea of endless, pointless, unwinnable wars across the ocean when there is so much to deal with on our own shores, predictably took issue with Clinton’s Friday podcast characterization of her as a “favorite of the Russians.”The Hawaii congresswoman hit back hard, calling Clinton out as the “queen of warmongers” who has...
  • Hillary Clinton says Tulsi Gabbard is a 'Russian asset' groomed to ensure Trump reelection

    Hillary Clinton said that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is being groomed by Moscow to run as a third-party spoiler candidate in 2020 to help President Trump win reelection. The former secretary of state pushed the theory on the Campaign HQ podcast hosted by David Plouffe, President Barack Obama’s campaign manager in 2008. Plouffe and Clinton discussed hurdles the Democratic nominee would face and compared the 2020 race to Clinton’s loss to Trump in 2016. Plouffe asked Clinton about the part third-party candidates, such as Jill Stein of the Green Party, played in 2016, allowing Trump to secure key states. "They are...

    Beto O'Rourke is the Jar Jar Binks of the Democratic field. Maybe in all of politics. The concept of Beto, like Jar Jar, was carefully planned and cultivated. Beto was a creation of the media who saw him as the new floppy-haired hope a few years ago. He transcended modern politics with cool, Generation X flare and almost gave Ted Cruz a run for his money in Texas.

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | October 18, 2019 | Nic Rowan
    Former Obama administration adviser Van Jones accused Hillary Clinton of smearing presidential hopeful Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D., Hawaii) "with no facts." Clinton accused Gabbard, an Iraq War veteran, of acting as a "Russian asset" on Friday. Jones dismissed Clinton's criticism as a "complete smear" that spread "disinformation." "She's playing a very dangerous game," he told CNN. "Hillary Clinton, if you're concerned about disinformation, what the Russians do is they spread disinformation, they get us divided against each other. That is what just happened, just throw out some information, disinformation, smear somebody." The failed 2016 Democratic nominee accused Gabbard and 2016...

    File under 'Dumb': Kamala Harris asserts she knows Rudy Giuliani committed crimes, but has no idea whatPearls, suits and heels aside, Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris may appear to be smart, but reality shows she's actually very dumb. How else to explain this one from softball political interviewer, Anderson Cooper of CNN? ~snip~ Harris said Giuliani “has clearly broken many laws,” adding that his actions are “further evidence of corruption” by the Trump administration and that they violate an “extraordinary number of rules and ethical laws.” When Cooper asked Harris what specific laws she believes Giuliani has broken, the senator...

    South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg responded Sunday after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., took issue with the 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful's approach to fundraising. The far-left congresswoman accused Buttigieg of protecting a system of "big money politics" instead of trying to make it a thing of the past, touting the merits of "small-dollar grassroots campaigns," which she said were more successful than his. Buttigieg said he's quite familiar with grassroots campaigning, but said it will take more than that for Democrats to succeed in 2020. “Well, first of all, you don’t go from mayor of South Bend to a competitive...

Her low numbers in Iowa are in addition to her poor showing in key primary states like South Carolina, New Hampshire, and even her home state of California.

Speaking at his “Rally Against Fear” in Texas, Beto used 'racism' as the topic of choice."It's no longer sufficient for us not be racist," Beto declared to the crowd."Each one of us must commit to being anti-racist in America going forward."

    Tulsi Gabbard ✔ @TulsiGabbard Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies and powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose. It’s now clear that this primary is between you and...

    Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is hitting major bumps at a critical moment in the 2020 campaign. A little more than three months before the Iowa caucuses, Biden is widely seen as having lost his frontrunner position to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). He’s an underdog in Iowa, is coming off another forgettable debate performance and has just $9 million in cash on hand. Democrats say a number of factors have weakened his stature, including verbal flubs and long-winded rambles and what they say is an inability to be consistent in taking the fight to President Trump. “It’s increasingly clear he's not...

    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...

    If Hunter carries himself publicly as he did in this interview, people will neither like him nor trust him—and that may spell trouble for Joe. The fourth Democratic primary debate offered yet another opportunity for former vice president Joe Biden to dodge questions about his son Hunter’s shady business activities. While his father was running the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy, Hunter was serving on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company, earning up to $50,000 per month despite zero experience in the energy sector.In Tuesday night’s debate, when Anderson Cooper questioned Biden about the impropriety of this dynamic, Biden...

    In between the first and second hour of the Democratic Party’s presidential debate in Ohio was a brief commercial from the Freedom From Religion Foundation calling for watchers to remember that secularism was a founding father plan for America’s government from the get-go and that those who say differently are, well — uninformed. Come on in guys, the fire’s warm. Ronald Prescott Reagan — the son of the late, great President Ronald Reagan — actually made the pitch for FFRF on national TV, wrapping with this mocking line: “I’m a lifelong atheist, I’m not afraid of burning in hell.” Yikes....

The far-left Farenheit 9/11 director also slammed candidates Joe Biden, Amy Klobuchar, and Pete Buttigieg for their defense of capitalism in the health care system.

    During Tuesday’s CNN-New York Times Democratic debate, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg said President Donald Trump withdrawing U.S. troops from Syria has made them “ashamed,” and was taking away their honor. Buttigieg said, “The slaughter going on in Syria is not a consequence of American presence, it a consequence of a withdrawal and a betrayal by this president of American allies and American values. Look, I didn’t think we should have gone to Iraq in the first place. I think we need to get out of Afghanistan. But it’s also the case that a small...

    During the October 15, Democrat debate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke made clear that AR-15 owners who refuse to hand over their guns will have them taken away. O’Rourke reiterated his plan to use a government-mandated buyback to confiscate privately-owned AR-15s and AK-47s. In so doing, he claimed that each AR-15 and AK-47 in private hands is a “potential instrument of terror.”CNN’s Anderson Cooper then asked O’Rourke how he plans to get people to hand over their rifles.  O’Rourke responded by explaining that he expects complains with the mandatory buybacks. He said, “I expect my fellow Americans to follow the law. The same...

    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.
