  • Black woman 'not a must' for Biden VP, Clyburn says

    WASHINGTON — Joe Biden’s remarkable comeback from the depths of a fifth-place finish in the New Hampshire primary to all but locking up the Democratic nomination this month can be traced to his overwhelming support among black voters. And one critical endorsement — from South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn — helped reinforce that support at a tenuous moment in his candidacy. As Biden now takes steps to begin formally vetting potential running mate, there are few voices more influential to the former vice president than Clyburn’s. And while there may be pressure from some in the party to not just...

    In accordance with the democrat doctrine of never letting a good crisis go to waste, Majority Whip James Clyburn told his Democrat colleagues last month the coronavirus pandemic was a “tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.” Clyburn wants to use America’s suffering to reshape the landscape into some kind of Socialist paradise. So it should come as no surprise that Speaker Nancy Pelosi tapped Rep. James Clyburn to lead a House oversight committee to ensure the government’s coronavirus funds are spent “wisely and effectively.” Via National Review: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) announced Thursday that she...

    The third part of the Corona (Chinese Wuhan) virus has been twice stalled today by democrats. It was reported that last night that an agreement between Republicans and Democrats was reached on the relief bill. Instead, democrats pulled a a bait and switch with their own bill. In that bill is a democrat liberal fantasy wish list- a garbage grab bag. Among the things more important than your family dying: Airline carbon emission footprintPayment for up to $10,000 in student loansSame-day voter registration, early voting, voting by mail, ballot harvestingCollective bargainingThe expansion of wind and solar tax credits for solar panelsRequirements...

    Democrats on Capitol Hill have now twice-rejected an economic stimulus packaged aimed at aiding Americans and businesses hurt by the coronavirus shutdown measures, as Republicans claim that their colleagues on the other side are attempting to cram a wish list of unrelated demands into the bill. Adding fuel to the fire, news began circulating last week that House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) had reportedly told colleagues that the bill provided "a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision." Clyburn's comments came during a conference call last Thursday featuring more than 200 Democrats, in which House Speaker Nancy...

Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will face “backlash” and calls for him to exit the race to prevent the primary race from dragging on for too long. Carville began by saluting Clyburn and saying he “literally saved the Democratic Party.”

    On Sunday, House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) appeared on MSNBC to talk about the 1994 crime bill. During the conversation, Clyburn made a shocking admission: he doesn't believe the Bill of Rights would pass if it was brought forth today. "You know what, I really believe sincerely that the climate we're in today, if the Bill of Rights the first 10 Amendments of the United States Constitution, were put before the public today, I'm not too sure we'd hold onto the Bill of Rights," Clyburn said. "Especially when I see what people are doing with the Second Amendment. No...

    House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn on Monday walked back remarks suggesting that Democrats will impeach President Donald Trump, reversing course to say he’s “farther” from backing impeachment than most of his caucus. Clyburn’s comments came after a private leadership meeting Monday evening in which Speaker Nancy Pelosi reiterated that she didn’t support launching impeachment proceedings right now despite a growing push within the caucus. “I’m probably farther away from impeachment than anybody in our caucus,” Clyburn (D-S.C.) told reporters Monday night. “We will not get out in front of our committees. We’ll see what the committees come up with. I’ve...

    Over the weekend, another ranking Democrat, Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina, appeared to placate the Donkey Party’s increasingly radicalized and Marxist base by intimating POTUS Donald Trump likely will be impeached by the House “at some point.” The Hill reported: When Tapper asked Clyburn if he thought Democrats would launch impeachment proceedings against Trump, he said “yes, that’s exactly what I feel.” “What Nancy Pelosi is trying to do, and the rest of us in the House of Representatives, is developing a process to efficiently move on this issue so when we get to the vote, something she calls...

    A senior member of Democratic leadership suggested Sunday that the House will eventually begin formal impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump after building public support. "We think that we have to bring the public along," House Majority Whip James Clyburn said on CNN's "State of the Union." He continued, "We aren't particularly interested in the Senate. We do believe that if we sufficiently, effectively educate the public, then we will have done our jobs, and we can move on an impeachment vote and it will stand, and maybe it will be what needs to be done to incent the Senate...

    House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) said Sunday he believes President Trump will be impeached "at some point" but that Democrats must first build a case for impeachment. Clyburn, the third-ranking Democrat in House leadership, offered the remarks in an interview on "State of the Union with Jake Tapper." When Tapper asked Clyburn if he thought Democrats would launch impeachment proceedings against Trump, he said "yes, that's exactly what I feel."

    In a bid to bolster their contention that President Trump is the worst person to ever occupy the Oval Office, House of Representatives Democratic Whip James Clyburn (SC) listed what he termed “the frightening and eerie parallels between Adolf Hitler and Donald Trump. Both abstained from consuming alcohol. Both were elected with less than a majority of the popular vote. Both characterized their predecessors as ineffective and corrupt. Both came to power as outsiders without prior experience in government. Both achieved a strong economy and military. It could hardly be clearer that President Trump is the biggest threat to America...

    House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) on Thursday defended controversial comments he made this week related to the Holocaust, saying that dark chapter of history — and the Jewish suffering that accompanied it — was uniquely horrific and he would never diminish its significance. "Every student of history, which I consider myself to be, recognizes the Holocaust as a unique atrocity which resulted in the deaths of six million Jews," he said in a statement posted to Twitter. "It should never be minimized; I never have and I never will." Clyburn came under fire Thursday from Republicans and some Jewish...

    House Democratic leaders are delaying a vote on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism that had been slated to take place on Wednesday, a senior Democratic aide confirmed Tuesday. "We could consider something as early as Thursday," the source told The Hill. House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.D.) told Fox News Tuesday evening they were “still drafting” the resolution, but feels it should be "anti-hate." The measure is expected to be updated to include language condemning anti-Muslim bias. The resolution comes in the wake of Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-Minn.) most recent controversial comments on Israel. "I want to talk about the political...

    Earlier this week, House Republicans scored a second surprise victory on a 'motion to recommit,' one of the lower chamber minority's few procedural tactics. During a legislative battle over gun control legislation, more than two dozen Democrats backed a GOP proposal to require that ICE be notified whenever an illegal immigrant is flagged attempting to purchase a firearm. Republicans succeeded in another MTR gambit several weeks ago, adding language condemning anti-semitism to a foreign policy vote, a move clearly designed to isolate and shame Rep. Ilhan Omar . Following these losses, Democratic leadership is reeling, leading to a fiery...

    Democratic leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives floated the idea on Wednesday of ending a partial government shutdown by giving President Donald Trump most or all of the money he seeks for border security with Mexico but for items other than a physical wall. Representative James Clyburn, the No. 3 House Democrat, told reporters that Democrats could fulfill Trump's request for $5.7 billion for border security with technological tools such as drones, X-rays and sensors, as well as more border patrol agents. Representative Steny Hoyer, the second-ranking House Democrat, also said Democrats would be discussing "substantial sums of additional...

    Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) said he would step in to run for Speaker of the House if Democrats take back the chamber in November and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) does not appear to have the votes, he told The New York Times. The comments are the latest indication he is exploring a run for the Speakership. **SNIP** Clyburn, who is currently the third highest ranking Democrat in the House, would be the body’s first black Speaker. He said his claiming the Speakership would “put to bed forever the notion that the Democratic Caucus is taking black voters for granted.”

    We didn’t go there, did we? I mean seriously? Did Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), the third ranking member of the House Democratic Caucus, pretty much insinuate that the accusations against Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) shouldn’t be believed because the accusers are white? Conyers is under fire for sexual misconduct. In 2015, he settled a sexual harassment claim to the tune of $27,000 in taxpayer money. Melanie Sloan, a Washington lawyer, claimed to be the subject of verbal abuse by Conyers, even walking into his office to have the Michigan Democrat half-dressed. She has not alleged any sexual harassment, but Deanna...
