    CLEAR LAKE, Iowa — Former Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado is in discussions about ending his presidential bid and entering the race for his state’s Republican-held Senate seat, potentially giving Democrats a strong candidate in a race they must win to have hopes of retaking the chamber in 2021, according to four Democrats familiar with his thinking.
  • CNN Fails to Note Crime Jumped After Colorado Gun Control

    On Saturday's CNN Newsroom, during an interview with former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, CNN host Ana Cabrera failed to inform viewers of some very important facts as she discussed the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate's successes in passing gun control in his home state in 2013. As the CNN host asked the Democratic presidential candidate about the issue of how to get at least some Republicans to go along with such measures, she failed to note that violent crime has increased substantially in Colorado every year since the passage of more gun control in 2013. What's more, violent crime had been...

    “When the people shall have nothing more to eat, they will eat the rich.” Philosopher Rousseau said those words about the French Revolution more than 200 years ago, but they could well have been a talking point in the Democratic debates this week. The candidates brushed aside repeated questions about raising taxes to pay the trillions promised for free college, universal health care, reparations and new homes for African Americans, free health care for the undocumented, massive investment in traditionally black colleges, and other “big ideas” that various candidates pledged. What they all agreed on was that the “rich” would...

    Joe Biden survived the second round of Democratic presidential debates, but it became more apparent that over half the 22-person field is irrelevant and should get out, the sooner the better. The former vice president was repeatedly under attack on health care, criminal justice, immigration and abortion. He stumbled sometimes, but overall was sharper than his mediocre performance in the first debate a month ago. This won't assuage fears of mainstream Democrats that the 76-year-old Biden may not be up to the challenge of a protracted primary fight and bitter battle against Donald Trump. Still he was sufficiently engaged to...

    FiveThirtyEight noticed last week that, very quietly, Biden was recovering from the polling hit he took after the busing exchange with Kamala Harris at the last debate. Harris had zoomed up after that in some polls, even touching 20 percent in Quinnipiac’s June survey, but the trend didn’t continue. It was Biden who was once again on the rise while Harris dipped a bit.Now here comes Quinnipiac’s July poll with even clearer evidence of the trend.What happened?Look back to the numbers from June. After a long slide in early July after the first debate, with Harris nearly passing him,...

    Empty wallets might finally do to the crowd of Democrat 2020 presidential challengers what national disinterest could not. New financial disclosures show that 11 liberal contenders for the Oval Office are operating their campaigns at a deficit, having spent more money than campaign donations could support. Eight more have less than $1 million on hand. More than five months from 2020, only the front-runners have the financial means to go much further. “This is the doomsday scenario for a lot of campaigns, where they’re grasping for air to keep their campaigns alive and to live another day,” said Washington Democrat...

    Well, it looks like we’ll have our first official drop out for the 2020 season this afternoon. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who ran on gun confiscation, is reportedly deciding to exit the race for the Democratic nomination and plans to run for re-election to his House seat in deep blue California instead. Yeah, real shocker that running on an unconstitutional gun control initiative, among many other things, didn’t help. Also, no one knows who the hell he is. He made a clown of himself in the first debate, drawing attention to himself for all the wrong reasons. Simply put, there...

In this video I explain why it was like something out of the Twilight Zone since I had promised my mother over a week ago that I would try to get Hickenlooper to address her while I was live streaming.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio secured a coveted spot for the first Democratic presidential primary debate later this month — despite his failure to get at least 65,000 donors. The Democratic National Committee released the list of the 20 candidates who will partake in the back-to-back debates on June 26 and 27 in Miami. The four contenders who did not make the cut are Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton, retired Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel and Miramar, Fla., Mayor Wayne Messam. NBC is expected to announce the lineup for each night on Friday morning. NBC will randomly select 10...

    During the California Democratic Party Convention on Saturday, 2020 presidential candidate and former governor of Colorado John Hickenlooper was not well received by the crowd, especially when he warned them about their party’s radical leftward shift. "If we want to beat Donald Trump and achieve big progressive goals, socialism is not the answer,” Hickenlooper told them before being met with a chorus of jeers. "If we’re not careful, we’re going to end up helping to re-elect the worst president in American history." Well, it’s a little late for that, but clearly, the convention of the radical base of California Democrats...

    Democratic activists booed former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) on Saturday after he warned party faithful about the perils of embracing socialism and socialist positions ahead of next year's presidential race. Hickenlooper, a former governor of a purple state Hillary Clinton won by just 4.9 percent of the vote in 2016, said Republicans would use the Democratic flirtation with socialism to paint the entire party as outside the mainstream of the political spectrum. "If we want to beat Donald Trump and achieve big progressive goals, socialism is not the answer," Hickenlooper told delegates to the California Democratic Party convention. Some...

    While addressing the California Democratic Party State Organizing Convention in San Francisco on Saturday night, former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper said something eminently sensible: “If we want to beat Donald Trump and achieve big progressive goals, socialism is not the answer.” The audience interrupted his remarks with sustained boos that lasted for 30 seconds. When Hickenlooper spoke against universal healthcare, the audience booed him again.

    RUSH: More on the California Democrat convention and the booing of John Hickenlooper. The former governor of Colorado gets booed off the stage, practically, for simply saying heading in the direction of socialism is not… Not “heading in the direction.” Socialism is not the answer. The people in California didn’t want to hear that. California’s Democrats… California, politically, is a socialist state now — and I say that in the meaning of the term ideologically. Of course, that encompasses attitudinal and behavioral and everything else. From all intents and purposes, California is a socialist state. So let’s examine just some...

    National Review ^ | 05/23/2019 | Jim Geraghty
    Every presidential primary ends with one winner and a lot of losers. Some might argue that one or two once-little-known candidates who overperform low expectations get to enjoy a form of moral victory. (Ben Carson and Rick Perry might be happy how the 2016 cycle ended, with both taking roles in Trump’s cabinet. Bernie Sanders might be, too.) But running for president and flopping is a deep disappointment, and while the occasional figure can emerge from a failed bid to move on to different victories — Lamar Alexander and Elizabeth Dole became senators, Jerry Brown became governor again, Howard Dean...

    Full title: Ocasio-Cortez Rebuffs ‘Fact-Checkers,’ Says The World Ending In 12 Years Was ‘Dry Humor’ Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez complained Sunday that GOP fact-checkers were taking her “dry humor” literally. “This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and ‘fact check’ it,” she tweeted. “Like the ‘world ending in 12 years’ thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal. But the GOP is basically Dwight from ‘The Office’ so who knows.” (AOC tweet) And when Ocasio-Cortez first made the claim, she certainly appeared to...

    Ohhh, AOC. I can’t figure out if she’s so full of it she often trips over her own crap, or if she’s really, truly braindead. Just a few days ago, the Socialist Sweetheart revealed that her assertion that the world would end in “12 years” was OBVIOUSLY sarcasm and dry humor, and if you don’t get the joke, you’re just stupid. This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and “fact check” it. Like the “world ending in 12 years” thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think...

    Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez acts like she's confused and doesn't understand why $93 trillion is too much. She doesn't have a real way to generate that money. If anything, it would come from taxpayers. Not to forget, the Democratic Party already struck down her Green New Deal when they voted on it the first time. Democrats don't seem to have faith in AOC's plan. Video at source.

    I love a good joke, and I even have a particular fondness for bad ones. Jokes are good. And when a stupid person says something she later regrets and unconvincingly tries to play it off as a joke, that can be amusing too. That's what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is trying to do right now. After months of being mocked for her apocalyptic predictions about globalwarmingclimatechange, now she's saying... just kidding! ... So if Republicans don't listen to AOC when she says we only have 12 years left to save the planet, they're evil and hate children and want everybody to die......

(summarized) “We only have 12 years to stop Hitler! We only have 12 years to stop the Nazis from taking over the world!” In this case, climate change is Hitler (aside from Trump), and the Nazis are all of the things that we are doing to destroy the planet. Twelove years. We had 12 years. Well, the fact-checkers got in gear. (Not the liberal fact-checkers. The Drive-By Media dutifully reported it...
