  • After Hillary Drops Out... What?

    PJ Media ^ | May 25, 2016 | Michael Walsh
    The State Department's report on Hillary Clinton's insouciant attitude toward cyber-security would finish any other American politician. She ignored the law, flouted it repeatedly, and didn't care; folks are in prison for less. The only thing that's holding her up at this point is her Amen Corner in the media, most of whom know her personally and who long for a Clinton Restoration in order to reclaim their places as house courtiers. But 2016 is not 1992 or even 2008, and the retinue of retainers is as long in the tooth as the former first lady herself. They can't protect...

    It’s not just her primary challenger Debbie Wasserman Schultz has to worry about—it’s now some Democrats on Capitol Hill, too, who fear the DNC chair has become too divisive a figure to unify the party ahead of the convention. These Democrats point to her contentious relationship with the Sanders campaign throughout the primary process as reason for her to step down.  “There have been a lot of meetings over the past 48 hours about what color plate do we deliver Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s head on,” a pro-Clinton Democratic senator said, reports The Hill. "I don’t see how she can continue to the election," the lawmaker...

    Democrats on Capitol Hill are discussing whether Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz should step down as Democratic National Committee chairwoman before the partys national convention in July. Democrats backing likely presidential nominee Hillary Clinton worry Wasserman Schultz has become too divisive a figure to unify the party in 2016, which they say is crucial to defeating presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump in November. Wasserman Schultz has had an increasingly acrimonious relationship with the partys other presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, and his supporters, who argue she has tilted the scales in Clintons favor. There have been a lot of meetings over the...

    California Sen. Dianne Feinstein warned that Bernie Sanders' intention to take his candidacy to the Democratic convention in July could spark unrest similar to the chaotic 1968 convention in Chicago and the riots surrounding it. "It worries me a great deal," Feinstein told CNN's Manu Raju. "You know, I don't want to go back to the '68 convention, because I worry about what it does to the electorate as a whole -- and he should, too." Her comments were the latest evidence that Democrats are increasingly fretting that the divide between supporters of Sanders and backers of Hillary Clinton will...

    Ahead of President Barack Obamas first visit to Vietnam, the country voted Sunday in once-every-five-year-elections for a rubber-stamp parliament whose membership has already been largely determined by the Communist Party. Amid worries about soaring public debt, a serious budget deficit and Chinas aggressive claims in nearby seas, theres also high hope for Obamas visit, both in the government, which wants him to lift an arms export embargo so it can better deal with Beijing, and among rights activists who want him to hold to account a repressive one-party state seen as treating its critics abysmally.

    On May 22, 1856, in the United States Congress, Representative Preston Brooks attacked Senator Charles Sumner with a walking cane in retaliation for a speech given by Sumner two days earlier. The beating nearly killed Sumner and it drew a sharply polarized response from the American public on the subject of the expansion of slavery in the United States. It has been considered symbolic of the "breakdown of reasoned discourse"[1] that eventually led to the American Civil War.

Jones knocked Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz for her response to Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders on Tuesday in light of the contentious Nevada Democratic convention. "Debbie, who should be the umpire, who should be the marriage counselor, is coming in harder for Hillary Clinton than she is for herself.

Clinton edged Sanders in the Nevada caucus on Feb. 20th (52.6 percent to 47.3 percent). On April 2, however, the state party held its Clark County convention and Sanders mobilized more delegates than the Clinton campaign (1,613 to 1,298), which swung the delegate count in his favor. At the state convention this weekend, the final step in the process, Sanders supporters hoped to secure the lions share of the remaining 12 delegates. Instead,...

    Though Bernie Sanders won the New Hampshire primary in a landslide over Hillary Clinton, he will likely receive fewer delegates than she will. Sanders won 60 percent of the vote, but thanks to the Democratic Party's nominating system, he leaves the Granite State with at least 13 delegates while she leaves with at least 15 delegates. New Hampshire has 24 "pledged" delegates, which are allotted based on the popular vote. Sanders has 13, and Clinton has 9, with 2 currently allotted to neither. But under Democratic National Committee rules, New Hampshire also has 8 "superdelegates," party officials who are free...

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is driving young Muslims "closer to the terrorists," said actress and feminist icon Jane Fonda. Ms. Fonda, 78, appeared Sunday night at the Women's Equality and ERA Coalition's "Night of Comedy" in Manhattan, accusing Mr. Trump of "fanning the flames of people's anxieties and racism," the New York Daily News reported. "It's terrible and it's dangerous," Ms. Fonda said. "Even if he doesn't make it, which I don't think he will, the fact that he's said the things he's said about Muslims for example,...

    ‘YOU SUCK!’ Debbie Wasserman Schultz heckled by NH Dems FEBRUARY 6, 2016 BY KYLE OLSON Share on Facebook869Tweet This73Reddit5371.4k Debbie Wasserman Schultz has got to be hoping Hillary Clinton can take down Bernie Sanders in the primary. Or it’s going to be a long road to November. The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee was mercilessly heckled while she spoke at a Democratic Party dinner in Manchester, New Hampshire Friday night. C-SPAN cameras were trained on a man holding a flashing Bernie Sanders sign who sat stone-faced while the audience cheered Wasserman Schultz. “We’re going to stand up and fight!”...
  • DNC shut out as Sanders, Clinton propose four more Dem debates

    The DNC’s planned coronation of Hillary Clinton as the Democrats’ 2016 nominee has pretty much gone off the rails at this point, with far too many voters refusing to toe the line and the pesky FBI inserting doubts in the hearts of the faithful. You may recall that, at least until now, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has been holding the line, insisting that her paltry schedule of six debates (four before Iowa) was sufficient and would keep the voters informed. Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley and some big names in her base have called out the obvious ploy and been screaming...
  • Clinton, Sanders camps agree to more debates, DNC (Wasserman Schulz) has yet to give OK

    The campaigns of Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders have reportedly agreed to four additional debates, including one Thursday in New Hampshire before the state's Feb. 9 primary. However, both camps said the agreement was not final and that Democratic National Committee had yet to give its OK. The committee has not agreed to debates beyond the original four sanctioned ones, amid complaints from Sanders and other Democrats that Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schulz, Florida, has limited the schedule to protect the front-running Clinton. But in recent days, Clinton has urged the party to add the televised...

    We will start by admitting this: It's not immediately clear what makes for a top-notch chair of a major political party in the super PAC era. Is it the ability to raise big sums of money or skillfully lob bombs at the other party? Is crafting a successful strategy and tactics to expand the party's representation and voter base? Is it the willingness to put in one of those let's-get-this-debate-party-started performances like the one Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus delivered Thursday night (complete with the dubious claim that the GOP is the party of diversity)?
  • Will anyone watch the Democratic debate this weekend?

    Sunday night's presidential debate should be the most closely watched meeting of the party's candidates this year. But once again, thanks to the Democratic National Committee"s schedule, debate viewership will not be even close to what it could have been. **SNIP** But not only will this debate air at 9 p.m. on Sunday, in the middle of a three day weekend, but it will also run during National Football League playoff games and - dare we say - a new episode of PBS's popular series, "Downton Abbey."
  • Trump Donated Heavily To Democrats, Especially During Election Which Put Reid And Pelosi In Power

    While the Trumps spent nearly $50,000 to elect congressional Democrats, they donated only $1,000 to the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRSC). But perhaps the worst outcome that election for Republicans was that Pelosi and Reid became Speaker of the House and Senate Majority Leader, respectively. The pair made a formidable team and did heavy lifting to ensure that Obama was elected in 2008 and that much of his agenda — including Obamacare — was put in place.
  • Could the DNC really remove Debbie Wasserman-Schultz?

    Generally, when you see criticism of DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz cropping up, it’s coming from Republicans and conservatives. And why not? There’s plenty of fertile ground for going after her. But this month she’s facing an uprising on her own left flank. As the Daily Caller reports, supporters of Bernie Sanders have started a petition drive trying to oust the Florida congresswoman from her perch just as the primary voting is about to begin. In just five days, nearly 27,000 people have signed a progressive advocacy group's petition calling on the Democratic National Committee to remove its chairwoman, Rep. Debbie...
