    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...

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, who is challenging President Trump in the Republican primaries, proclaimed Monday that the president committed treason through his controversial phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky -- adding that the punishment for treason is death. The statement drew a swift rebuke from the Trump campaign. “The media’s affliction with Trump Derangement Syndrome has driven them into an actual discussion of the proposed execution of the President of the United States,” communications director Tim Murtaugh told Fox News. “In severe cases of TDS such as this, immediate consultation with a physician is recommended.” Weld was responding...
  • Spakovsky and Canaparo:California can't pick who runs for president. New law just an attack on Trump

    We’re all used to seeing California throw its weight around, but its new law requiring a presidential candidate to provide five years of tax returns to be eligible to appear on a primary ballot is a new low. Now, however, a federal district court judge has blocked the state from enforcing it, at least temporarily. It’s the right decision. The law is nothing more than a political attack on President Donald Trump, the federal elections process, and the right of free association of citizens and all political parties. California is weighing its options, but if it chooses to appeal, the Ninth...

    During a town hall style interview with WMUR 9 Friday, former Vice President and 2020 Democrat Presidential Candidate Joe Biden came out against the Supreme Court's ruling on District of Columbia v. Heller. “Do you agree with the DC vs Heller decision in regards to protecting the individual right to bear arms that are in common use and which are utilized for lawful purposes?” Biden was asked. "The answer is," Biden Said. "If I were on the court I wouldn't make the same ruling. Okay?" Joe Biden Comes Out Against Heller...Video The Heller ruling, which was decided 5-4, confirmed the...

    President Trump’s remarks Monday condemning the horrific mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton did little to quell the anger from 2020 Democratic hopefuls who are blaming his rhetoric as well as inaction on gun control in part for the violence, as they level uncensored attacks on the president and Republicans in Congress. In the wake of the back-to-back mass shootings that left at least 31 dead, the Democratic presidential candidates have dropped the usual decorum surrounding even tense policy debates like gun control, using coarse language to demonstrate their exasperation over the GOP response to gun violence and their...
  • Moderators Should Press Candidates on Policy Proposal Consequences

    The Democratic debates tonight and tomorrow will likely stick to the familiar script from the first ones, with candidates tripping over each other to see who can promise the biggest tax-spend-and-regulate agenda. This doesn't make for compelling television. President Trump nailed the description of the first round with his one-word tweet, "BORING!" To make the debates more exciting to watch and to provide voters with a glimpse of reality into Democrats' fantasy-world policy proposals, the CNN moderators must press the candidates on the consequences of their proposals. A good place to start is by challenging their uniform support of the...
  • New Poll: Voters See Democrats as Extremists

    In case you missed it this week, 20 Democrats hopeful to take back the White House in 2020 participated in their first election debates. Candidates were split on two stages between two nights, with each hour proving Democrats have officially abandoned any moderate position with a full embrace of the most radical leftist positions. Whether it's destroying the private health insurance system, raising taxes on the middle class, providing "free" healthcare to illegal aliens or supporting abortion up until nine months, candidates made their positions clear. But according to a new Rasmussen poll, the majority of voters believe the...

    How do you know if you're living in a free society? Here's a quick test: Are you allowed to say obviously true things in public? Or are you forced to lie? As George Orwell put it in "1984": "Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows." But what if that freedom isn't granted? What if you're required to repeat things that you know aren't true? What if everyone who hears you knows perfectly well that you're lying, but they can't say so out loud? What if everyone is...

    This week marks the official kickoff of the prime-time Democratic presidential primary process. Two debates in Miami will include the top 20 contenders -- yes, top 20. Ten contenders will participate in each of the two-hour debates, to be held Wednesday and Thursday night during prime time. The debates will be televised live on NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo. There are five in this series of debates: Jose Diaz-Balart of Telemundo and NBC, Savannah Guthrie of "Today," Lester Holt of "Nightly News," Rachel Maddow of MSNBC and Chuck Todd of "Meet the Press." They and their staffs will have worked hard...
  • Beto Unveils New 'War Tax' That Would Tax Non-Military Families

    Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke released his new proposal to tax non-military families via Twitter on Monday. O’Rourke’s “war tax” would require American families who make over $200,000 a year to pay $1,000 for each war embarked on by the United States. Military families would be exempt from the tax. The tax “would serve as a reminder of the incredible sacrifice made by those who serve and their families,” the proposal reads. It does not specify the types of military engagement that would constitute a war under the tax. Funds from the "war tax" would be deposited into a veteran's...
  • Overlooked Poll: 60% Of Voters Find Democratic Field Of Presidential Candidates 'Underwhelming'

    Despite boasting a field of more than two dozen candidates for the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, the most recent Harvard/Harris poll shows that the 6 out of 10 voters find the slate of choices to defeat President Donald Trump to be "underwhelming." The poll, conducted online within the United States from May 29-30, 2019 among 1,295 registered voters, found that just 40% of American voters find the Democratic options so far to be "impressive" when asked, "Do you find the current field of Democratic party candidates for president to be impressive or underwhelming?" 60% of participants answered "underwhelming" during this...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The California Legislature is trying again to force presidential candidates to publicly disclose their tax returns, hoping a new Democratic governor known for his clashes with President Donald Trump won’t block them this time. The state Senate voted 27-10 on Thursday to require anyone appearing on the state’s presidential primary ballot to publicly release five years’ worth of income tax returns. The proposal is in response to Trump, who bucked 40 years of tradition by refusing to release his tax returns prior to his election in 2016. California’s presidential primary is scheduled for March 3. If the...

    Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN)Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan harshly criticized President Donald Trump over the findings released in special counsel Robert Mueller's report, telling reporters Tuesday that "it certainly did not completely exonerate the President as he said." "There was some very disturbing stuff found in the report and just because aides did not follow his orders," the Republican governor said Tuesday in New Hampshire. "That's the only reason we don't have obstruction of justice."

    Sen. Cory Booker announced a bill Monday to form a commission to recommend reparations for slavery, taking the reins of one of the most intriguing and controversial agenda items from the 2020 campaign. Mr. Booker becomes the highest-profile lawmaker to sign onto reparations legislation. He said it could solve persistent racism and discrimination that have been built into the system for decades, leading to disparate outcomes for all black Americans.

    The absurd call of reparations for slavery is being revived by desperados who hope to get the Democrat nomination for president. If a Democrat doesn’t agree with the call for reparations, they know they will not get the nomination. Therefore, every candidate has to play along, flaunting their racial sensitivity in an attempt to get the black vote. No one can secure the Democrat nomination without the black vote, and thus this subject is resurrected every four years. This reparations scam is a cruel joke perpetrated on a community of people by suggesting free money might be coming. None of...

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro isn’t ruling out direct payments to African-Americans for the legacy of slavery – a stand separating him from his 2020 rivals. “If under the Constitution we compensate people because we take their property, why wouldn’t you compensate people who actually were property,” the former Obama-era housing secretary and ex-San Antonio mayor said on Sunday. Castro was among the last of a pack of 2020 candidates to speak at the South by Southwest Festival in Texas, in what amounted to one of the biggest gatherings of the Democratic field yet.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has infuriated colleagues by aligning with a progressive outside group that’s threatening to primary entrenched Democrats. Now some of those lawmakers are turning the tables on her and are discussing recruiting a primary challenger to run against the social media sensation. At least one House Democrat has been privately urging members of the New York delegation to recruit a local politician from the Bronx or Queens to challenge Ocasio-Cortez.

    When Kamala Harris looks back on her first campaign, a run for San Francisco district attorney, she remembers a brutal awakening. “San Francisco is hard-knocks politics,” the freshly declared 2020 White House hopeful once said in an interview. “People sling mud. They punch the gut.” San Francisco is indeed a crucible that has forged state and national political leaders in numbers far out of proportion to the city’s relatively small size, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Gov. Gavin Newsom and Harris’ fellow U.S. senator, Dianne Feinstein. If she wins, Harris, 54, who announced her candidacy Monday, will be the...

    Full title of article: "Sad and pathetic: Delusional Bill Kristol prepares ‘war machine’ to challenge Trump for 2020 GOP nomination" Excerpt: Swamp fever has taken a toll on a number of DC-dwelling conservative pundits and driven them mad. They seem to be competing with each other to see who can bark at the moon loudest. There’s Jennifer Rubin, who has excoriated Trump for taking positions that she previously advocated. There’s George Will, who wished for a 50 state sweep for corrupt Hillary Clinton. But making a strong move to capture leadership of this cohort is Bill Kristol, who still fancies...
