    Joe Biden's granddaughter snapped at David Axelrod for his remarks about the former vice president's poor showing in the New Hampshire Democratic presidential primary. "Who would have predicted that @joeBiden and @ewarren would leave N.H. without a single delegate?" Axelrod, a CNN commentator who was a top White House aide and campaign strategist for former President Barack Obama, said in a tweet Tuesday night. **SNIP** "Disingenuous - you’ve been predicting his demise & doubting his resilience since beginning," Naomi Biden tweeted in response to Axelrod. "There’s a difference between being entitled to an opinion & relishing a platform to disparage...

    Former Obama chief strategist David Axelrod said he attended a focus group with Democratic voters in Chicago on Friday, describing the gathering as "chilling" because impeachment "didn't come up" until more than an hour into the session despite it taking place amid the Senate trial of President Trump. Axelrod, who serves as a political analyst on CNN, shared about his experience during an interview with network anchor Erin Burnett on "OutFront" on Friday night, as Democratic House impeachment managers made their final arguments in the trial before White House lawyers begin their defense of the president on Saturday. "I was...

    His resiliency in the primary has caught the attention of the party establishment. Suddenly, Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign is being taken seriously. For months the Vermont senator was written off by Democratic Party insiders as a candidate with a committed but ultimately narrow base who was too far left to win the primary. Elizabeth Warren had skyrocketed in the polls and seemed to be leaving him behind in the race to be progressive voters’ standard-bearer in 2020.

    The Stop Warren Primary Democrats reap the radical disaster they sowed. Tue Nov 19, 2019 Daniel Greenfield 37 Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. The Democrat 2020 primaries started around stopping Trump, now they’re about stopping Warren. Senator Elizabeth Warren has the worst poll performance of any of the front runners. She’s radical, abrasive, and she’s alienating the money people whom the Democrats need to win national elections. Too bad that Warren is exactly what they deserve. Radical parties get radical nominees....

    Former Gov. Deval Patrick, D-Mass., is telling friends and allies he’s going to enter the race for the White House and is likely to announce his candidacy on Thursday, Fox News confirmed on Wednesday. After declaring his candidacy, Patrick is expected to travel to neighboring New Hampshire to file for the state’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary. Friday is the last day for candidates to place their names on the primary ballot. Patrick's campaign is likely to face high hurdles, including fundraising, a lack of national name recognition and entering the race extremely late in the election cycle. His move would come...

    Appearing Saturday on CNN’s Axe Files, Cindy McCain reacted to recent happenings in Washington, D.C., saying the United States needs her late husband, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), “more than ever.” A transcript is as follows: DAVID AXELROD: What would John McCain be saying right now? CINDY MCCAIN: I think he’d be disgusted with some of the stuff that’s going on. I really do. He’d be railing against what’s going on. I think John provided a lot of cover for other members and when he would do it, they could get behind him. I’m not seeing a real rudder in the...

    Democratic White House hopeful Joe Biden's campaign said Monday that the former vice president misspoke when he said that he immediately opposed the Iraq War. "Vice President Biden misspoke by saying that he declared his opposition to the war immediately," senior campaign adviser Antony Blinken told The Washington Post for a fact-checking piece on Biden's Iraq stance. "He opposed the way we went to war and the way the war was being carried out. He has for many years called his vote a mistake and takes full responsibility for it." Biden in 2002 voted to give then-President George W. Bush...

    CNN's David Axelrod mocked a tweet from former Vice President Joe Biden to former President Obama celebrating "Best Friend's Day," with the former Obama-Biden campaign chief strategist asking if it was joke. "This is a joke, right?" Axelrod, who hosts "The Axe Files" on CNN, asked in a tweet on Sunday to his 1.1 million followers after Biden, a 2020 presidential candidate, wished Obama happy “#BestFriendsDay” on Saturday. Biden's post included a photo of the bracelets he shared to celebrate his Obama's 55th birthday in Aug. 2016.

    Veteran journalist Bob Woodward said he is not confident that special counsel Robert Mueller did a exhaustive job in his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. In a podcast interview last week with former Obama adviser David Axelrod, Woodward said the Mueller case lacks the kind of solid evidence from the Watergate scandal — mainly the thousands of hours of Nixon tapes — that could be used to determine President Trump had obstructed justice. "Quality of evidence, as you know, really matters," said the Washington Post associate editor, who said he has read the Mueller report twice. Asked...

    @DavidAxelrod: "Unless some better explanation surfaces, here’s the lesson of this weird turn in the Smollett case: You can contrive a hate crime, make it a national news, get caught and-if you are a well-connected celebrity-get off for $10K and have your record expunged and files sealed" "Hate crimes are loathsome. Faking them is insidious and shouldn’t be excused. Despite Smollett’s denials, nothing the prosecutor said in dismissing the case supports that. If prosecutors have evidence that contradicts the indictment THEY brought, they should share it today."

    Since Donald Trump Jr. first gave an impassioned and well-received speech in support of his father and conservative values at the 2016 Republican National Convention, rumors have swirled about his own political future. At a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for President Donald Trump on Thursday, Trump Jr. told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he would "never rule anything out" when it comes to potentially making a run for office. "Right now, I'll never rule anything out," said the president's eldest son, according to Newsweek. "I do enjoy it. I like being in the fight. I like being in...

    Former Weekly Standard editor-in-chief Steve Hayes and National Review's Jonah Goldberg will be joining forces to launch a new conservative media company, according to a Thursday report. The Axios report comes just three months after The Weekly Standard, a conservative magazine that was critical of President Trump that has been printing since 1995, announced it would be ceasing publication. The report says Goldberg and Hayes, who are currently seeking investors, plan "a reporting-driven, Trump-skeptical company that will begin with newsletters as soon as this summer, then add a website in September, and perhaps ultimately a print magazine." It adds that...

    SEATTLE (AP) — For a businessman who grew a small coffee roaster into an inescapable global chain, who ensured that even his part-time workers had benefits and who has given about $150,000 to Democratic campaigns, former Starbucks Chairman Howard Schultz is generating tepid — or even hostile — responses within the party as he weighs a presidential bid in 2020. That’s partly because — as Schultz told “60 Minutes” on Sunday — he’s considering running as an independent, a prospect many worry could draw support from the eventual Democratic nominee and hand President Donald Trump another four years in office....

It’s become part of the standard talking points for cable-news pundits and their well-programmed guests and has been the new rallying cry for the left as they try their best to explain the imminent electoral disaster that looms on November 2nd.But one group was well ahead of the curve on this movement...

    WASHINGTON — Charles Barkley is weary. He was never a fan of Donald Trump’s, even before the election, but now he’s tired of ‘‘this turmoil every single day — the tweeting, the hiring and firing.’’ In an interview with David Axelrod on CNN’s ‘‘Axe Files,’’ Barkley was angry with those voted for Trump, saying that the president’s message had resonated with voters ‘‘who just won’t look in a mirror and say, ‘My life sucks because of me.’ “ ‘‘I’ve never been more angry and disgusted at this situation than I am now. This turmoil every single day — the tweeting,...

The formula is as surefire as it is simple. Write all the rot you can possibly think of while holed up in the White House West Wing; make claims you have videos to back it up, then get former Obama advisor David Axelrod to astroturf it as legit.

    Archbishop of Chicago Blase Cupich took a shot at Breitbart News executive chairman and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, a devout Catholic, saying it is “laughable” to believe that financial profit is the reasoning behind the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) support for mass immigration to the United States. In an interview with former President Obama political strategist David Axelrod, Cardinal Cupich hit back at Bannon’s comments during a September segment of CBS’s 60 Minutes where he blasted Catholic Bishops for supporting illegal immigration while ignoring the issues and hardships it creates for American citizens. Bannon...
