    U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard resigned her post as a vice chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee today, allowing her to formally endorse Bernie Sanders for president. Gabbard made the announcement on the NBC political talk show "Meet the Press." "As a vice chair of the Democratic National Committee, I'm required to remain neutral in Democratic primaries, but I cannot remain neutral any longer," Gabbard laterexplained in a video statement. "The stakes are just too high." Gabbard cited her experience as a veteran of two military deployments in arguing that Sanders has the judgment necessary to make sound military decisions. "We...

    Hillary Clinton said that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is being groomed by Moscow to run as a third-party spoiler candidate in 2020 to help President Trump win reelection. The former secretary of state pushed the theory on the Campaign HQ podcast hosted by David Plouffe, President Barack Obama’s campaign manager in 2008. Plouffe and Clinton discussed hurdles the Democratic nominee would face and compared the 2020 race to Clinton’s loss to Trump in 2016. Plouffe asked Clinton about the part third-party candidates, such as Jill Stein of the Green Party, played in 2016, allowing Trump to secure key states. "They are...

    The head of the nation's largest sugar beet cooperative said Thursday that shareholders will see improved results this year, but two of his group's biggest challenges are the anti-genetically modified foods movement and Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz. American Crystal Sugar Co. CEO David Berg received the only round of applause during his speech to the group's annual meeting when he challenged Cruz to a debate over the Republican presidential candidate's call to do away with government support for the sugar industry. "We will defend the sugar program for a long, long time," Berg said, pretending he was addressing...

    Cision ^ | September 26, 2019
    In 2008, Barack Obama won 26% of the evangelical vote; in 2012, he won 21%. Hillary Clinton won 16%. If she had simply replicated Obama's performance among evangelicals, she would likely be President. In his new book, Do We Have a Center? 2016, 2020 and the Challenge of the Trump Presidency, Walter Frank, author of Law and the Gay Rights Story and Making Sense of the Constitution, warns that Democrats ignore the many lessons of the 2016 campaign at their peril. "The Democrats," Frank counsels, "are in grave trouble if they don't understand exactly what happened in 2016 and all...

    President Trump on Monday tweeted out a video mocking Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) over his failed 2012 presidential bid, comparing it with Trump's own success four years later. The video includes clips of election night 2012, where Romney lost to former President Obama, and 2016, where Trump defeated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. The video was posted just hours after Romney told reporters that he wants the Trump administration to give Congress the transcript of a highly controversial call between the president and his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky.

    The Washington Post ^ | May 7, 2019 | by Josh Rogin
    The Trump administration has recalled the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine abruptly and ahead of her scheduled departure, after she became a target of political attacks by conservative media outlets and Donald Trump Jr. Democrats see her early departure under pressure as the unfair targeting of a career Foreign Service officer by Team Trump. According to an internal State Department management notice that I obtained, U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch will leave her post permanently on May 20, with no replacement in place and no nominations to fill that position. The House Democratic leadership thinks that Yovanovitch’s early departure under pressure is...

    Clinton learned the inaccurate figure from a partisan voter suppression analysis… (Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) Hillary Clinton continued her excuses tour on Sept. 17, claiming that she lost the 2016 presidential election due to “voter suppression,” but PolitiFact Wisconsin struck down her claim, rating it “mostly false.” “The best estimate is that 200,000 people in Wisconsin were either denied or chilled in their efforts to vote,” Clinton said without evidence. “I don’t think we believed at the time, before the election, that it would be anything like that, anything as big as that.” Clinton learned the inaccurate figure from a...

    Breitbart ^ | UPDATED 9:10 AM PT — Thursday, August 22, 2019 | OAN Newsroom
    Election meddling by Big Tech companies comes into question once again after a long-time Hillary Clinton supporter confirms close ties between tech giant Google and the 2016 runner up. A Twitter war between Clinton and President Trump led to Clinton claiming research showing bias from Google in 2016 was debunked. However, Dr. Robert Epstein — a decades long Hillary supporter and the man behind the research — defended his conclusions in a Twitter rampage, where he referenced his testimony before Congress last month. “In 2020 — if all these companies are supporting the same candidate — there are 15 million...

    The Justice Democrats political action committee have expelled The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur and his business partner David Koller over a number of sexist blog posts written in the early 2000s, reports say. The Wrap revealed on Friday that Uygur and Koller, who are best known for their roles on The Young Turks network, authored a number of sexist blog posts. In the posts, Uygur argued that women were genetically “flawed” for not wanting to have more sex and claimed that he was “done” dating any woman if he hadn’t felt their breasts by the third date. Koller meanwhile recounted an experience of...

    President Trump, per usual, uttered quite a few astonishing soundbites during his 90-minute rally Thursday night in Manchester, N.H. But he was stirring controversy before he even reached New Hampshire. Speaking to reporters earlier that day as he left his New Jersey golf club, Trump revived an unfounded conspiracy theory that he would have won New Hampshire in 2016 but for buses full of out-of-state voters who illegally cast ballots.

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016 and is challenging Bernie Sanders in the 2020 presidential race, now says he believes Sanders would have beaten Donald Trump. "In my heart, yeah," the mayor said, when asked during a wide-ranging interview at POLITICO’s headquarters Monday if Sanders would have won the general election three years ago. "You know, hindsight’s 20/20, but I think when we look at it now, that was a moment where there was such desire for change," he added. De Blasio's embrace of Sanders comes as the Vermont senator is one of...

    Ex-MSNBC host Krystal Ball rips former network over Russian hoax: ‘Rachel Maddow, you’ve got some explaining to do’ Ex-MSNBC host Krystal Ball blasted her former network as “not journalism” and singled out "The Rachel Maddow Show" on Thursday for floating wild “Russian conspiracy theories” that blew up during former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's testimony. Mueller's testimony before two House committees Wednesday was largely considered a “disaster” for Democrats and opponents of President Trump despite MSNBC pushing the collusion narrative. Ball -- who now hosts The Hill newspaper's “Rising” -- said on her show she did not mean anything personal when...

    As President Trump presses his attacks against four women of color in Congress, suggesting they are unpatriotic and should leave the country, many voters in this city on Lake Huron are embracing his “America — Love It or Leave It” message, saying they do not see it as racist. And though they dismiss Mr. Trump’s Twitter broadsides as excessive or juvenile, they voiced strong support for his re-election and expressed their own misgivings about the four women. “They happen to be black or colored,” Dennis Kovach, 82, said of the women, as he watered the lawn of his home near...

    Deadlocked on a party-line vote, the Federal Election Commission has dismissed a complaint that Hillary Clinton’s campaign illegally coordinated with a super PAC during the 2016 presidential election cycle. Continuing a recent trend with the embattled regulatory agency that is currently missing two of six commissioners, it was the Republican commissioners, not Democrats, who voted to stonewall enforcement action over the complaint. Just one month before the 2016 presidential election, Campaign Legal Center filed a complaint with the FEC alleging that the Clinton campaign illegally coordinated with Correct the Record, a hybrid PAC run by Media Matters for America founder...
