  • Buttigieg fires back after AOC’s fundraising dig, blasts far-left 'purity tests'

    South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg responded Sunday after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., took issue with the 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful's approach to fundraising. The far-left congresswoman accused Buttigieg of protecting a system of "big money politics" instead of trying to make it a thing of the past, touting the merits of "small-dollar grassroots campaigns," which she said were more successful than his. Buttigieg said he's quite familiar with grassroots campaigning, but said it will take more than that for Democrats to succeed in 2020. “Well, first of all, you don’t go from mayor of South Bend to a competitive...

    Before progressive darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) officially endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for president on Saturday, the duo sat down with The Intercept to discuss the need for a progressive grassroots movement in America. According to Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez is one of the most influential people in Congress and she has made great strides over the last year. "It's hard to believe that a year ago today you were waiting tables, is that correct?" Sanders asked AOC. "I cannot recall any political in modern history of this country who, in the course of one year – and she's the youngest woman...
  • Ohio planners looking at a 30-year timeline for hyperloop project between Pittsburgh and Chicago

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | October 17, 2019 | Ed Blazina
    Ohio planners will move full speed ahead on a proposed hyperloop system that would carry passengers between Pittsburgh and Chicago in about 58 minutes for a one-way cost of about $93. But the full system, known as Mid-West Connect, probably wouldn’t be finished until about 2050. Thea Walsh, director of transportation and funding for the Columbus, Ohio-based Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission, said this week the agency is putting the finishing touches on feasibility and environmental impact studies but has concluded it should pursue the hyperloop system. The system being developed by Virgin Hyperloop One would move passengers and freight in...

    If you’re worried that your white, male 76-year-old candidate might not be able to cut the mustard, who do you bring in? A white, male 77-year-old candidate, of course. Or at least that seems to be the thinking of billionaire New Yorker Michael Bloomberg.According to sources close to the former New York City Mayor, Bloomberg is still “seriously thinking about” running for President, probably as a Democrat, but only if Joe Biden appears to be seriously struggling against Elizabeth Warren. Or perhaps only if Joe Biden drops out of the race. (CNBC) Mike Bloomberg might end up running for...

    The U.S. President Donald Trump did not oppose a deal struck between the Syrian Kurdish-led forces, Russia and the Syrian government in Damascus to protect against a Turkish offensive in northeastern Syria, the commander of the force said as his fighters battled a new push by Ankara-backed fighters to seize a strategic border town. The commander of the Kurdish-led forces, Mazloum Abdi, said Trump essentially gave the go-ahead for the deal in a phone call Monday. The Kurds’ deal, announced Sunday, came after Trump ordered U.S. troops to step aside as Turkey launched its attack last week. Under the agreement,...
  • The eye-popping cost of Medicare for All (the Fauxcahontas $34 trillion wet dream)

    The Atlantic via MSN ^ | 10/16/19 | Ronald Brownstein
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s refusal to answer repeated questions at Tuesday night’s debate about how she would fund Medicare for All underscores the challenge she faces finding a politically acceptable means to meet the idea’s huge price tag — a challenge that only intensified today with the release of an eye-popping new study. The Urban Institute, a center-left think tank highly respected among Democrats, is projecting that a plan similar to what Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders are pushing would require $34 trillion in additional federal spending over its first decade in operation. That’s more than the federal government’s total cost...

    With all the rancor in politics these days, the CNN/New York Times Democratic debate on Tuesday night delivered a rare moment of comity: Twelve Democrats agreed, apparently without compensation, to appear in a Donald Trump ad. Other points on which the Democrats came together in peace and harmony: -- Trump should be impeached. -- Abortion is great. -- Obamacare sucks. At least we’re all finally agreed on Obamacare! Obamacare has given us a system -- to quote Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont -- “which is dysfunctional, which is cruel, 87 million uninsured, 30,000 people dying every single year, 500,000 people...

    Full title: What a Head Scratcher: Biden Lectures Crowd About Not Getting 'Do-Overs When It Comes to National Security' 1:40 min. Video at link. Former Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday lectured Iowa voters about the dangers of making the wrong decisions when it comes to international relations, saying there's no "do-overs when it comes to national security." "All the consequences I’ve mentioned, every single one can be laid at the feet of Donald Trump. You know, he green-lighted Turkish invasion. Now he’s left asking Turkey to stop it. But the damage is done," Biden explained to the crowd. "You...

    Via the Free Beacon, lots of oohing and ahhing among the chatterati over this answer from last night’s CNN event. It’s “on brand,” if nothing else. Klobuchar’s betting that (a) the leftist vote will split half a dozen ways, (b) Biden either will choose not to run or get sunk by leftist grievances against him when he gets in, leaving the center to her, and (c) her regional appeal will help her to a surprisingly strong finish in Iowa, elevating her into the top tier. This question and answer were a perfect opportunity for her to establish her centrist...

    A question about Ellen DeGeneres and former President George W. Bush’s friendship drew the ire of Democratic presidential candidates and viewers alike following Tuesday night’s debate hosted by CNN and The New York Times. After the three-hour televised event, viewers and some Democratic hopefuls slammed debate moderator Anderson Cooper’s final question of the evening, which did not focus on what many thought could have been more important issues, like climate change. “Last week, Ellen DeGeneres was criticized after she and former President George W. Bush were seen laughing together at a football game. Ellen defended their friendship, saying, ‘We’re all...
