  • O'Malley: Democratic party 'regenerating itself, almost like after a bad forest fire' (Laff riot)

    According to former Maryland governor and 2016 presidential candidate Martin O’Malley, former President Obama, the Democratic National Committee, and the Clintons bear responsibility for miscalculations that weakened the Democratic party in recent elections. “What is happening now is the party is regenerating itself, almost like after a bad forest fire,” O’Malley told ABC News’ Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl and Political Director Rick Klein on the Powerhouse Politics podcast. He says the “fire” started in 2008. He believes Obama squandered the energy of his candidacy. “Rather than infusing that energy into the veins of the Democratic party and making...

    Once again, DC Democrats have gun owners' rights in their sights. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), an obvious Constitutional scholar (insert sarcasm here), introduced H.R. 4268 in the House. The bill would mandate that licensed gun dealers and individuals wait seven days after buying semi-automatic firearms, suppressors, armor-piercing ammunition and high capacity magazines before transferring them. Of course, as with all of these attempts to infringe on the rights of gun owners, the bill is clouded with a name that presents it as something promoting "safety" when the reality is it does absolutely nothing to promote safety. The bill is referred to...

    Several women have accused Rep. John Conyers (a Democrat) of sexual harassment. They did this not publicly, in the media, but in court filings. Another former staff member to Michigan Rep. John Conyers alleged that she endured persistent sexual harassment by the congressman, according to court documents. A former scheduler in the Conyers' office attempted to file a sealed lawsuit against him this February in the US District Court for the District of Columbia that alleges she suffered unwanted touching by the Democrat “repeatedly and daily.” She abandoned the lawsuit the next month, after the court denied her motion to...

    As part of their latest attempt to block President Donald Trump’s travel ban, Senate Democrats say the order preventing refugees from Muslim-majority countries is being used by ISIS to recruit lone-wolf terrorists. Eight Democratic senators on Friday introduced the No Ban on Refugees Act, which would prohibit the U.S. government from barring refugees from coming into the U.S. based on their country of origin. "Trump's refugee ban puts American lives at risk and it plays right into the hands of our enemies," the bill’s lead sponsor, Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut, said in a statement. "There's no real danger to...

    In August, the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board labeled the case against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton a “political prosecution” citing a sealed grand jury document provided to the editorial board. That document has now been published for the public to view by Direct Action Texas, a North Texas-based political accountability group and its contents are alarming. The document, a motion to dismiss filed by Paxton’s legal team, lays bare a number of violations of Paxton’s due process rights by Special Prosecutors Brian Wice and Kent Schaffer, as well as Chris Older, the original judge on the case. Oldner was...

    The journalist Joe Klein, a leading Bill Clinton chronicler in the 1990s, said Tuesday that he was an “enabler” for defending the then-president. Klein said in an interview with the NPR show On Point that he didn’t think Democrats today would stand by Clinton the way they did in the 1990s as the cultural landscape has shifted on sexual misconduct. “I must confess to having been a Clinton enabler during that time,” Klein told guest host Jane Clayson. “In that I defended him, and we all knew that he was a cad. There's no question about that. But it was...

    Donna Brazile said in an interview Tuesday that Russian hackers destroyed “critical data” when they breached the Democratic National Committee (DNC) ahead of the 2016 presidential election. Brazile, who served as interim DNC chair for a portion of last year, made the comments during an interview with Joe Madison on Sirius XM. “We had so much sh*t in … our entire technology ecosystem that we couldn’t clean it up. Oh man, [those] Russians were on us like white on rice. I mean, they were, Joe, they were destroying data, critical data, Joe,” Brazile, who is promoting her new book “Hacks,”...

They gathered friends and family, which is to say colleagues, and they talked about the good old times, which is to say the successful ones. They put out a bin of old campaign pins and ribbons, lapel declarations of belief in a place called Hope. They sold, and sold out of, $42 tickets to a brunch where you could get miniature apple pies, made-to-order omelets, mimosas, and candied bacon...

    Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) and 15 other Democratic senators signed a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) assailing a Trump Administration policy denying illegal unaccompanied minors access to abortion. "Long ago the Supreme Court decreed that it is every woman's constitutional right to abort her unwanted child," the letter said. "The Administration's attempt to get around the Court's decree by asserting it doesn't apply to females in the country illegally is reprehensible. Their argument that providing free abortions to illegal immigrants would only encourage more illegal immigration is irrelevant. Providing a refuge for those seeking abortions...

    Imagine: even the New York Times’ Ross Douthat now thinks that Bill Clinton should have stepped down over the Monica Lewinsky affair. Douthat's mea culpa op-ed in this past weekend’s paper, in which he confesses that he and others may have been wrong to dismiss Bill Clinton’s indefensible behavior, will serve as the official political obituary for Clinton, Inc. Hillary Clinton is done, finished, kaput. Dogged by scandals old and new, out of step politically, her excess baggage has morphed into an entire baggage train, dragging her towards political oblivion. While it is refreshing to consider the landscape unadorned by...

    Donald Trump would not win the presidential election if it were held today because of the numerous sexual allegations against him and the “Me Too” movement that has swept the country in recent weeks, Democratic Congresswoman Jackie Speier said Sunday. More than a dozen women came forward during last year’s presidential campaign to accuse Trump of sexual assault or harassment. He was also caught on an infamous “Access Hollywood” recording bragging about sexually assaulting women. Yet, just weeks later, he was elected president following a victory over Hillary Clinton. However, in the wake of a wave of women coming forward...

    Chris Matthews gave it to the Democrats on Saturday in a talk at the Miami Book Fair, saying they’ve lost their connection to white working people, and had better try to get it back. “You know, ever since we started this Archie Bunker thing in the early ’70s, making fun of white working people, we kissed them goodbye,” he said. “You make fun of people, you look down on them? They get the message. You call them deplorables? They hear it. You bet they hear it. You say they cling to their guns and their religion? Oh yeah, I cling...

    Turmoil has been the order of the day among leaders of both the Republican and Democratic parties. Listing all the many concerns of millions of voters who have been loyalists of either party would require a book. But a book by Donna Brazile, formerly chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, makes one difference between the two parties crystal clear. It is that Democrat leaders, who frequently present themselves as the real voice of the people of America, are no such thing. It was made clear more than a year ago that, despite the best efforts of many in the Republican...

    This week Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) introduced Articles of Impeachment against President Donald Trump, saying that “this usurper must be held accountable for his high crimes and misdemeanors before he drags the country into the hellish tyranny he has designed for America.” The list of offenses includes… “On election night in 2016, rather than gracefully and rightly conceding to the winner of the popular vote, Donald Trump exploited a the loophole of the Electoral College to unfairly declare himself president,” Cohen charged. “Millions were summarily disenfranchised. Women and minorities were especially hard hit.” “He continues to steadfastly refuse to release...

    After Donald Trump's election victory, Michael Moore suggested Democrats should run a celebrity in 2020. If they aren't already considering it, they should be, writes Jeet Heer at New Republic. Some argue that voters are actually turned off by celebrities, whose lectures can feel patronizing and whose bank accounts hardly make them relatable. But "we live in a media-saturated world where fame has persuasive power," and the political victories of Trump, Ronald Reagan, and Arnold Schwarzenegger prove that, Heer says. But whereas Republicans have used celebrity to their advantage, Democrats have chosen to hope for a candidate that's both smart...
