    Washington Examiner ^ | Oct 2019 | Daniel Chaitin
    Cummings was a liberal powerhouse from Maryland, while Meadows, 60, is a conservative who hails from North Carolina. The two men had little in common, but they shared a uniquely strong friendship on Capitol Hill. The bond was put on display at critical moments this year. During a dramatic House Oversight Committee hearing in February, in which President Trump's former fixer Michael Cohen was providing testimony, Cummings came to the defense of Meadows, who was accused of a "racist act" by Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib when he brought up Lynne Patton, a black woman who is a longtime friend of...

Beto O'Rourke are all in deep danger of not making November's debate. That means Tuesday may be the last chance fo those four to give their campaigns a realistic chance to have a measure of success. Fundraising and polling qualification thresholds have been bumped up once again for November's debate. Jumping...

    The use of “technicals” by military forces to round up citizenry as part of genocide. This post looks into the role that (so called) “technicals” play in national upheavals.

She also raised the stakes by vowing to quit the race if she can’t muster a win, place or show in the Hawkeye State’s leadoff caucuses Feb. 3. “We want to make sure that we have a strong top-three finish,” said Harris campaign manager Juan Rodriguez. “I think that will kind of continue to give us a slingshot to go into that early primary state calendar and then make sure...
