    Hillary Clinton will run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, according to a former adviser and a top Democrat in New York. Mark Penn, a pollster and senior adviser to former President Bill Clinton and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from 1995-2008, and Andrew Stein, a former Manhattan Democratic party figure and New York City Council president, wrote Sunday in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece that the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee would not let "two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House." "Mrs. Clinton has come unbound. She will not allow this...

    After flipping dozens of seats in the midterm elections, Democrats are set to take control of the House of Representatives. Many pundits and analysts have attempted to frame the results as a referendum on President Trump. Among these, there seems to be a consensus that the president has somehow been “repudiated.” Not so fast.

    Get ready for Hillary Clinton 4.0. More than 30 years in the making, this new version of Mrs. Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle—back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994. True to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies. She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House. It’s been quite a journey. In July 1999, Mrs. Clinton began her independent political career on retiring Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s farm in upstate New York. Her...

    Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said by commenting on the Florida recount of the Senate and gubernatorial races, President Donald Trump was attempting “obstruction” and “suppression of the vote.” [snip] PELOSI: Yes to the second part. Let’s go to the first part first. My experience with the president is any time charges somebody with something he’s just projecting what he might have done himself."

    Michelle Obama says she felt alone after a miscarriage 20 years ago and she and Barack Obama underwent fertility treatments to conceive their two daughters, according to her upcoming memoir. In some of her most extensive public comments on her White House years, the former first lady also lets her fury fly over President Donald Trump's "bigotry and xenophobia" — dangerous, deliberate rhetoric, she wrote, that risked her family's safety. "For this," she writes, "I'd never forgive him." But it's her deeply personal account of her marriage to the future president that shed new light on the Ivy League-educated couple's...

    I left for vacation on Wednesday somewhat pleased about the election results, all things considered. I've been checking back in with the news periodically and am increasingly disturbed by what's going on in Florida and Arizona. I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Democrats never accept defeat, ever. If I read my Twitter feed, it's incredible the amount of fraud and ballot stuffing going on in Broward county in detailed specifics. But, if I wade into leftist Twitter, it's like a different universe. "No evidence of voter fraud", "the president is undermining our elections", etc. It's as flabbergasting as it is...

    Members of Missouri's legislative black caucus on Thursday elected state Rep. Steven Roberts, D-St. Louis, to chair the group — but Roberts' ascension drew criticism from one of his colleagues who two years ago accused Roberts of raping her. Rep. Cora Faith Walker, D-Ferguson, announced Thursday on Facebook that she was leaving the caucus. "I have resigned from the Missouri Legislative Black Caucus," Walker wrote. "I stand in my truth and am incredibly grateful to my colleagues who stand with survivors."

    Full title: Jeff Flake reportedly considering 2020 Trump challenge: 'Somebody needs to run on the Republican side'Arizona GOP Sen. Jeff Flake isn’t shutting the door on a possible White House run against President Trump. The Arizona lawmaker – who announced last year that he would not be seeking re-election to the Senate – told Politico Friday that he hasn’t “ruled it out,” nor has he “ruled it in.” “Just, somebody needs to run on the Republican side,” Flake said, adding that he thought Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., would also be good Republican alternatives to challenge...

    "It’s about stopping the GOP,” House minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said on election night. Voters turned her minority into a majority Tuesday evening. But Democrats do not get their hands on the lower body until January 3, which lets Republicans write this story’s final chapter. Democrats will stop the GOP. Pelosi, or whoever becomes speaker, will convert the House into a giant rubber stamp that says, “HELL NO!” Aside from an infrastructure bill, anything that slips past filibustering Democrats and passes the GOP Senate will be machine-gunned the second it reaches the House. The Trump/GOP legislative agenda, as...

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) is mounting a run for the White House, according to a Politico report, making him one of the first Democrats to challenge President Trump in 2020. An aide to Swalwell declined to confirm the Politico report, but noted that the three-term congressman has raised the prospect of a presidential bid in interviews and television appearances for months.

    What big tech has done to conservative and other undesirable publishers is nothing short of a digital Kristallnacht.” — Andrew Marchs, filmmaker On Tuesday night, after the votes were counted, Democrats took control of the US House of Representatives. wealthy suburban voters and women are being credited for the win. At least 35 Republican lawmakers lost their seats on Tuesday night. Democrats have a huge advantage over Republicans with their partners in the media complex, Hollywood, and academia. And, unlike 2016, this year Democrats can also can give a huge amount of credit to Tech giants Google, Facebook and Twitter....

    The Republican president, considered a lightweight and an ignoramus by many in Washington, suffered a setback in the offyear elections, losing several seats and effective control in the House, while maintaining and perhaps strengthening his party in the Senate. His leverage on domestic issues is reduced, but he retains the initiative on foreign policy and judgeships. That's a fair description of this week's offyear elections -- and of those in 1982, the last time voters paired a Republican president with a Democratic House and a Republican Senate. It also resembles results in 1962, when a Democratic president's party gained...

    When polled about whom they prefer to run against President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election, a thirty percent plurality of Democrats chose “none of the above.” Included among the candidates who were out-voted by the “none of the above” option in the Hill.TV’s latest poll are former Vice President Joe Biden, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. They earned only 25, 18 and 12 percent of votes, respectively.

    If there’s one thing that the left is consistently poor at, it’s managing expectations. Since President Trump’s inauguration, his opponents hung their fortunes on the idea of a massive blue wave to sweep away congressional Republicans in the midterms. Instead, we saw a modest Democratic gain in the House of Representatives and a strong Republican gain in the Senate. Democrats lost crucial races where they ran candidates too far left to carry moderate or conservative districts; it was moderate Democrats who had the best shots, while most of the hardcore leftists lost race after race Tuesday. The left believed that...

    Our long national nightmare is over, the midterms have ended. Now our new long national nightmare begins as the battle starts for the presidency in 2020. I know the last thing you want to hear about is more campaigning, but it’s going to happen no matter what, so we might as well mock it. Here is a look at some of the Democrats who are rumored to be running to challenge President Trump in two years. Elizabeth Warren: She checks a lot of boxes liberals love – she’s a woman and she’s a minority (when it’s convenient for her). She...

    Now that the smoke has cleared and we view the carnage, it's important to note that the last laugh should be on the Democrats. Republicans have until January 2nd, 2019 to make that a reality. With a little under two months left before the new Democrat majority in the House is sworn in, Republicans can push through every single element of President Trump's agenda. Fund the wall. Check. Increase the tax cuts to the middle class. Check. Make all the tax cuts permanent. Check. Ratify the new USMCA agreement. Check. Abolish birthright citizenship. Check. Finalize a limited DACA. Check.

    Tlaib, of course, had nothing to say about the genocidal incitement against Jews and Israel that regularly features on Palestinian television. She did say, however, that she favors a one-state, not two-state, “solution” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: “One state. It has to be one state. Separate but equal does not work. Indeed it doesn’t. A Palestinian state would be a new base for renewed jihad attacks against Israel. But a “one-state solution” would be even worse, unless that state is the current State of Israel, but that is not the one state Tlaib has in mind. The hijabed (and therefore...

    The media loves firsts. It's obsessively promoting the first gay governor. The first two Muslim anti-Semitic women in the House, one of whom is accused of marrying her brother (the media obviously isn't mentioning that part), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest elected dimwit. It's oddly uninterested in the first Korean-American woman in the House. Well, not so oddly. Rep. Young Kim is a Republican. Kim, 55, would be the first Korean-American woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives if she defeats her Democratic opponent Gil Cisneros for the open seat in California’s 39th Congressional District in Tuesday’s election....
