    The background checks, interviews, and vetting are unfolding behind closed doors in Washington and Wilmington, and on secured Zoom calls. But Joe Biden’s invitation-only search for a running mate is starting to look like an open audition with an audience of 300 million.

    Joe Biden might lose his third presidential bid to a septuagenarian socialist turning the Democratic Party into the U.K. Labour Party, and yet, he can't help but aim his fire at the 38-year-old former mayor of the 308th largest city in the country. Former Mayor Pete doesn’t think very highly of the Obama-Biden record. Let’s compare. — Joe Biden (Text Join to 30330) (@JoeBiden) February 8, 2020 After a year of maintaining a commanding lead over the 2020 primary polls, Biden has begun to spin out in early state polling after his anemic showing in the Iowa caucuses.

    Despite what Google describes as a “shift towards censorship” from big tech companies over the past three years, Democrat presidential candidates have said that they will use the power of the law to force even more censorship from Silicon Valley. Responding to a query from the far-left website Vox, Democrat candidates including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Pete Buttigieg all pledged to force big tech companies to crack down on “hate” even further.

    While President Michael Bloomberg allows China to do whatever it wants, Americans will be stripped of their firearms, french fries, and Big Gulps. Oh, please run, Bloomy… Please, please, please run… Just reading this stuff makes you dumber. How about… Oh, I don’t know… He wants to be president?

  • Obama Endorsed Candidates Falter in Virginia, Despite Democrat Statehouse Sweep

    Former President Barack Obama may live a stone’s throw away from Virginia now, but his sway over the state’s political landscape came up short on Tuesday. Obama, who lives in the elite Washington, DC, enclave of Kalorama, has taken an interest in Virginia politics since leaving the White House. In 2017, the former president endorsed a slate of Democrat candidates running for Virginia’s top three statewide offices. The following year, Obama actively actively hit the campaign trail to see Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), a former chairman of the Democratic National Committee and failed vice presidential candidate, reelected.

    William Buckley once said he would rather be governed by the first 2,000 people in the Boston phone book than the entire Harvard faculty. After watching the October 15 Democratic Party presidential candidate debate, I would rather have as president any of the first 2,000 in any phone book in any city in the USA than the present weird bunch of Democrats. Joe Biden is out of it. He said "coupon-clippers in the stock market" should pay the same tax rates as teachers and firefighters. The "coupon-clippers" are primarily those who buy municipal bonds that are tax-free. The interest is...

    Democratic candidates gathered in Sin City and went all in on gun control. Granted, it wasn’t hard to do when the event was sponsored by gun control groups Giffords and March for Our Lives and the table dealer was a left wing cable news network that didn’t even gamble their own ratings by putting it on their network. They live-streamed on the web instead.If you missed it, I don’t blame you. Still, there’s some big election-year ideas they’re betting on.BansThe field split on outright confiscation. They must have noticed that U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) isn’t at the table anymore...

    A Washington state police chief who took a stand in refusing to enforce elements of the state’s widely encompassing new gun control package is now running for Governor of the state. He’s making a pledge to restore the gun rights of Washingtonians a central message of his campaign. Loren Culp is the police chief of Republic, Washington. He was praised by gun owners and vilified by liberal prosecutors for his constitutional refusal to enforce parts of a massive gun control law enacted in 2018.

    What a stunning spectacle it was. During the two nights of Democratic debates on June 26 and 27, the U.S. public got an up-close look at a political party that has become increasingly radical and incoherent. If this slate of 20 candidates is the best the Democrats can come up with, then it has even more problems than I thought it did. Here’s a brief rundown of the litany of topics where these 20 candidates stand on issues: Tax Increases: Repeal the Trump tax cuts and raise taxes on the middle class. Open Borders: Cease all border enforcement and even...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) dismissed speculation that she would be a sought-after running mate to balance out a presidential ticket, instead calling current Democratic front-runner Joe Biden a great potential vice presidential nominee for her. “I think Joe Biden would be a great running mate. As vice president he’s proven that he knows how to do the job,” Harris said at a campaign stop in New Hampshire. Harris is often touted as a great potential running mate to add diversity to a Democratic ticket should she fall short in pursuing the presidential nomination herself.

    As the primary season ahead of the 2020 election heats up, Democrats are proving anew that theirs is the party of authoritarianism and top-down mandates, not small-“r” republicanism, liberty, and democracy. Upset that his party is ‘allowing’ little-known candidates vying for the presidential nomination a place at the table for at least some Democratic debates, a former DNC official laments that there is too much deference and attention being given to “bullshit candidates” instead of the “leaders.” What’s more, the former official didn’t even have the courage to identify himself, as the Washington Free Beacon reported.

    The growing roster of Democrats vying for the Party's 2020 presidential nomination has led to a desperate search for winning issues. Among the ideas being market tested are Andrew Yang's proposal to establish a "Legion of Builders and Destroyers" who will don capes and masks and embark on a quest to restore the foreskins of males who have been circumcised. "The mutilation has gone on for far too long," he says. Former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke has cited his balanced experience of being both a lawbreaker and a lawmaker as "a more well-rounded resume than anyone else in the race....

    What does it take to get ahead in today's world? If I were a young person entering politics, I'd be looking for the best résumé-enhancers, to see what sort of qualifications and accomplishments are shared by those "getting ahead" in today's political arena. Who are all these people getting ahead, and how are they doing it? After serving as a Chicago community organizer and Illinois state senator, Barack Obama rose from a pedestrian three years as a U.S. senator to become the 44th president of the United States. Coming out of a corrupt city and a corrupt state with corrupt...

    Years ago, in 1941, psychoanalyst Erich Fromm published a book called “Escape from Freedom”. Amazon summarizes the book as follows: The pursuit of freedom has indelibly marked Western culture since Renaissance humanism and Protestantism began the fight for individualism and self-determination. This freedom, however, can make people feel unmoored, and is often accompanied by feelings of isolation, fear, and the loss of self, all leading to a desire for authoritarianism, conformity, or destructiveness. It is not only the question of freedom that makes Fromm’s debut book a timeless classic. In this examination of the roots of Nazism and fascism in...
