  • Debbie Wasserman-Schultz: Don’t run, Bloomberg, Hillary’s got your agenda covered

    Canada Free Press ^ | 02/11/16 | Robert Laurie
    Ignore her, Mr. Mayor! Run! For months, we’ve been hearing rumblings that Michael Bloomberg was considering a third party run in 2016. So far, nothing’s materialized but, thanks to a “splintered” Democrat base, the rumors never really died down. In fact, they’ve grown even louder on the heels of Hillary’s New Hampshire defeat. The thinking on the left is that, if she can’t beat the socialist crypt-keeper, she has no chance against an energetic GOP. That may or may not be true, but it’s causing the former New York City Mayor to rattle the third-party saber - and the DNC...
  • Using Murder Victims and Police to Play Up the Race Card

    Democrats ginning up white racism in order to get blacks to vote for Democratic candidates in 2016 “Hands up don’t shoot” was a lie. The phony “Black Lives Matter” movement exists solely as a tool for Democrats to fire up their base when they need votes. Advocacy of violence against police, and Black racism are now considered hip. Why else did Beyoncé Knowles release a music video right before her Super Bowl performance of the race-baiting song “Formation,” showing police officers harassing young black people, and “Stop shooting us” graffiti? During the Super Bowl performance, Beyoncé‘s dancers, dressed in Black...
  • Democrats call for government-funded lawyers for illegal immigrants

    The Washington Times ^ | February 11, 2016 | Stephen Dinan
    Top Senate Democrats introduced legislation Thursday that would grant government-funded lawyers to illegal immigrants who are part of the surge of Central Americans that have overwhelmed the border and stretched the immigration courts. Though unlikely to advance in the GOP-controlled Congress, the legislation is an important marker for both the presidential campaign and for the ongoing debate over how the U.S. treats the illegal immigrants -- and particularly the unaccompanied children -- that have skyrocketed in recent years. Sponsored by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, the bill would allow illegal immigrants to delay their court dates until the government has...

    Front Page Mag ^ | 2/10/2016 | Bruce Thornton
    An ideological construct that exploits envy and resentment for political advantage. Throughout this primary season, Hillary Clinton and self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders have both been flogging the “crisis” of “income inequality,” which is “at the center of their campaigns,” according to CNN. Both have scourged the “greed” of the “1%,” called for higher taxes on the “rich,” and promised to expand and multiply government programs to rectify this injustice. Yet like other slogans progressives rely on, the idea of “income inequality” is an ideological construct, a statistical artifact that exploits envy and resentment for political advantage. The first problem with...

    So. Nevada. Clinton’s firewall? That’s what they say. It’s supposed to be the state where Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook will work his magic, as Mother Jones reported Wednesday. Mook ran Clinton’s effort there in 2008. She won then. But times are clearly different now. I don’t think for a minute that Nevada is a Clinton cakewalk, especially not after the shellacking she took Tuesday.

    Ignoring the wide public support for a 20-week abortion ban, New Mexico Democrats killed two bills Tuesday that would have protected these late-term babies from abortion. The bills failed in a state Senate committee vote Wednesday after an hours-long debate about abortion, according to The New Mexico Political Report. The bill failed in a party-line vote of 5-4, the report states. The legislation, sponsored by state Sen. Bill Sharer, would have banned abortions at 20 weeks when unborn babies can feel pain and defined viability as “when the life of the unborn child may be continued indefinitely by natural or...

    New York physician Dorothy Ogundu has been sentenced to 1 to 3 years in prison for ripping off City, State and federal programs for a fake health clinic. The Nigerian-born Ogundu was convicted in October on 29 counts, including second-degree grand larceny, forgery in the second degree, and first-degree offering a false instrument for filing. The prosecution was based on information uncovered by the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC), and made public through a New York Post article in April 2012.

    Ouch Yesterday, a half hour before her defeat in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton’s campaign released a three-page memo. It was designed to reassure the Hillary-faithful that, despite her impending loss, she was still a viable candidate. It had the opposite effect on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell: “Hillary Clinton had the Democratic Party establishment. She still has their endorsements, but he has out-raised her in January. He now will have a ton of money on those online contributions in February, and the Clinton team anticipated this with this three-page memo.”

    Stay awake, stay alert and get out there to support the non-socialist, non-progressive candidate of your choosing any way that you can. Bernie Sanders, who took last night’s New Hampshire Primary by storm, grandly concludes that his primary victory shows people want ‘Real Change’. Hello? Bernie? The ‘Real Change’ people got from Obama back in 2008 is all but killing off their country. The commonsense l conclusion with incoming Democrats is that one Democrat is EXACTLY the same as any and all of the others.

    Oh, what a difference a week makes: After barely eking past her Democratic opponent in Iowa, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lost the New Hampshire primary to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders on Tuesday night. With 68 percent of precincts reporting at press time, Sanders had a nearly 20 point lead over Clinton.

[Snip] Sanders won two out of every three men, and notably slightly more women than Clinton, according to the most recent exit polls. Sanders won young voters -- those under 30 -- by about 70 percentage points. He won those aged 45 to 64 with a slight majority. He won two-thirds of non-college graduates and a little over half of those with degrees. Sanders won six...

    Gov. Tom Wolf warned lawmakers on Tuesday that Pennsylvania's finances are a ticking time bomb amid a record-long budget gridlock, as he sent them a spending proposal for the coming fiscal year with no full plan in place for the year that began back in July. The first-term Democrat delivered an approximately $33.3 billion plan for 2016-17 to the Republican-controlled Legislature as he tries again to break down resistance to a multibillion-dollar tax increase that has held up passage of a budget for the current year. Wolf delivered his message in a blunt, 25-minute speech that prompted objections from most...

    A divide between the Illinois tollway and Chicago on the cost of airport land needed for the Elgin-O'Hare Expressway extension is threatening progress on the massive project, considered vital for the suburbs. An agreement to sell property on the western edge of O'Hare to the tollway at market value more than a decade ago has disintegrated, officials said, and the city's latest price tag of about $190 million is giving the tollway sticker-shock. "We've been negotiating for a long time. ... It's within the last couple of months I've realized how far apart we were," tollway Chairman Robert Schillerstrom said....
  • Clinton, Sanders and why this is a dangerous moment for Democrats (Washington Post)

    The Washington Post ^ | 2/7/16 | Ruth Marcus
    (snip) This is a tempting and dangerous moment for Democrats. The party has clearly become more liberal, reflecting the increasing polarization of both sides. According to the Pew Research Center, 41 percent of Democrats described themselves as liberal in 2015, compared with 27 percent in 2000. The share of Democrats identifying themselves as moderate fell from 43 percent in 2000 to 35 percent in 2015. The success of Sanders's full-throated progressivism among the party faithful is no surprise, especially in liberal-leaning Iowa and New Hampshire. But, notwithstanding the current head-to-head polls that he likes to cite, Sanders at the top...

    Perhaps President Obama's involvement is the reason that the FBI has not yet referred charges to the Justice Department in the Hillary Clinton email case. It may be metastasizing so quickly and so dangerously that not only are agents and lawyers within the agency having trouble keeping up with new evidence of wrongdoing, but that the scandal itself now threatens a constitutional crisis. The Department of State's refusal to release 18 emails exchanged between President Obama and Clinton through her unsecured home server at best creates a conflict of interest for Obama (as explained by Andrew McCarthy here) while at...

    Pennsylvania will be about $6 billion short of being able to fund all the projects legislators promised their constituents during passage of Act 89, the transportation funding bill of 2013. Secretary Leslie Richards will break the news to the Senate Transportation Committee when she testifies Tuesday, according to a copy of her testimony obtained by the Tribune-Review. Pennsylvania's 12-year transportation plan covers about 2,800 projects at a cost of about $34 billion.

    Voters keep sending the political class a message, and the political class continues to misread it. It is as if the political class doesn't want to understand voters because doing so would threaten their presumed expertise (and, in turn, their careers and pocketbooks). Analysis of Iowa's caucus results made clear that the Democratic Party has realigned: It is more cosmopolitan in academic circles, more socialist among the youth and aging baby-boomers, and more anti-establishment overall. In short, it is left of left. Yet the post-caucus coverage largely zeroed in on the personalities of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and...

    DES MOINES, Iowa — It’s tunnel-vision time for Hillary Clinton as she battles Bernie Sanders here — but she’s casting some serious side-eye in Donald Trump’s direction.

    "It's been an incredible appeal what he has had," Progress Iowa executive director Matt Sinovic said of Sanders, appearing on "Breitbart News Sunday" on Sirus/XM 125 with host Steve K. Bannon and Washington political editor Matt Boyle, which was broadcasting from Des Moines. Progress Iowa is a nonprofit organization that describes itself as "powered by a community of more than 30,000 progressives, focused on research, education, and advocacy." Sinovic described Sanders as "a movement candidate that has caught fire" competing against Clinton, who has a "broad, broad base of support" culled from a prior campaign.

    Ok.... we ALL have our favorites we are hoping for to win on the GOP side, and let's face it, it's getting very hairy! Let's take a time out from tearing at each other's throats over Trump, Cruz, etc. Let's flip the coin for a second.... Who are YOU rooting for on the Dem side to win? BERNIE or HILLARY? Why?? I'm still torn who would be the most easily beatable, and IF they one, who would do the least amount of damage to the country...
  • Clinton Iowa Volunteers Train When To Push Backers To O’Malley — To Block Bernie

    "Sad and telling," says Sanders campaign. There's an app for that. Hillary Clinton's campaign for president is instructing its Iowa caucus leaders to -- in certain cases -- throw support to former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, with the goal blocking her main opponent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, from securing additional delegates. The tactical move is rooted in the complex math of the Iowa caucuses Monday night, where the campaign is looking to defeat Sanders in a state whose caucus-goers have historically backed progressive challengers. A precinct captain, Jerome Lehtola, confirmed to BuzzFeed News that the campaign has trained precinct captains...

    Why Hillary is haunted by suspicions of dishonesty Did you notice anything otherworldly about the recent Democratic town hall in Iowa? There was a soft shimmer of the air, barely perceptible, when Hillary Clinton answered a young voter’s question about whether she is dishonest. People have thrown all kinds of things at me, she said. They make these charges. I just keep going forward because there’s nothing to it. Later that night, the shimmer materialized next to Hillary’s bed. As soon as she fell asleep, it woke her up. Hillareeeee! a ghostly voice wailed. Huh? What? She sat up. The...

    Three days before voting begins, residents around Iowa are making plans to caucus, but new online tools launched by both the state Democratic and Republican parties designed to inform people where to go Monday evening were built with one major hole, the parties confirmed to ABC News. The systems were only built off the list of registered voters' addresses. As a result, for new voters who have never registered in the state and who live at addresses where no one else has registered, the online feature does not work. Instead, when an address is not found in the system, users...

    2016 Elections: Democrats like to portray Republicans as out of touch. But a new poll shows that it's Democrats who are fixated on issues the public could hardly care less about, and who are too trusting of government. The poll, taken by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, asked people an open ended question: 'Which problems would you like the government to be working on in the year 2016?" Based on the campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders and their debates so far, you'd think the answers would be things like income inequality, "taking on" Wall Street,...
