Initiated by Cory Durden and supported by head coach Mike Norvell, both took the opportunity to address the crowd and call for support before the march.

    “I want to begin this with a question to Joe Biden, because Stacey Abrams is here because Joe Biden invited Stacey Abrams to be here. And so, Mr. Vice President, do you have an announcement to make?” O’Donnell asked. . . . Biden praised Abrams in his response, but did not announce her as his running mate. “Well, because Stacey Abrams has done more to deal with the fair vote and making sure there is a fair vote than anybody and she has a great, great capacity to explain things and the layout, exactly why it’s gonna be so critically...
  • McConnell Rejects Dem Attempt to Jam Pet Projects into Coronavirus Small Business Relief Bill

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and GOP House Leader Kevin McCarthy are pushing back against Democratic demands to include issues unrelated to coronavirus relief for small businesses in an expansion of the loan program. Politico: “Republicans reject Democrats’ reckless threat to continue blocking job-saving funding unless we renegotiate unrelated programs which are not in similar peril,” McConnell (R-Ky.) and McCarthy (R-Calif.) said in a joint statement. The $2 trillion virus relief bill contained a $350 billion fund for small business loans. That program has proven to be overwhelmingly popular and is in danger of running out of cash in a...

    How did the political left squander the opportunity that was the 2020 primary campaign? The Trump presidency has created tremendous energy among progressives. More than half of Democratic voters now identify as liberal. Most favor “Medicare for all.” A growing number are unhappy with American capitalism. This year’s campaign offered the prospect of transformational change, with a Democratic nominee who was more liberal than any in more than a half-century. Instead, the nominee now seems likely to be a moderate white grandfather who first ran for president more than 30 years ago and whose campaign promises a return to normalcy....
  • Democrats Weigh Whether to Pursue New Investigations as Election Looms

    WASHINGTON - House Democrats are grappling with whether to pursue further investigations of President Trump following his acquittal in the Senate, facing both an election in nine months and fresh White House actions that they say demand scrutiny. Democrats want to look into whether the president improperly influenced the Justice Department’s sentencing recommendation for a Trump confidant, casting Mr. Trump as emboldened by the end of the impeachment process. At the same time, party leaders are eager to focus on pocketbook issues for voters, such as health care, and Democrats are wary of launching another drawn-out fight with the White...

    NBC ^ | Jan 27 2020 | Allan Smith and Dareh Gregorian
    A pair of moderate Republican senators said Monday that the major revelations from a soon-to-be released book by John Bolton strengthen the case for calling witnesses in President Donald Trump's impeachment trial — and even a top ally of the president said Bolton would be a "relevant" witness. Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, said it's "increasingly likely" there will be enough Republican senators to vote in favor of calling witnesses in the president's ongoing trial. "I think, with the story (about Bolton's book) that came out yesterday, it's increasingly apparent that it would be important to hear from John Bolton," Romney...

    There is no more sacred room for military officers than 2E924 of the Pentagon, a windowless and secure vault where the Joint Chiefs of Staff meet regularly to wrestle with classified matters. Its more common name is “the Tank.” The Tank resembles a small corporate boardroom, with a gleaming golden oak table, leather swivel armchairs and other mid-century stylings. Inside its walls, flag officers observe a reverence and decorum for the wrenching decisions that have been made there. Hanging prominently on one of the walls is The Peacemakers, a painting that depicts an 1865 Civil War strategy session with President...
  • Julian Castro: The media held Kamala Harris to a “grossly unfair” double standard (HUH?)

    This guy’s awfully thirsty to ingratiate himself to her voters, isn’t he? But then, after struggling for the entire race, picking up her supporters might be his only play left to build some eye-catching momentum before he too is forced to quit. (He’s technically still running even though he’s no longer qualifying for the debates.) Imagine Castro’s disappointment when he finds out she had only slightly more support in the polls than he currently has. Although he never explicitly claims here that the alleged double standard to which Harris was subjected was driven by prejudice against her race and sex,...
  • The Democratic ticket Trump doesn't want in 2020

    The Hill ^ | 11/23/2019 | DOUGLAS MACKINNON
    Pete Buttigieg’s recent popularity surge in Iowa and New Hampshire has many speculating that President Trump could face a Democratic ticket in 2020 that he doesn’t want and fears the most — the South Bend, Ind., mayor and another candidate recently in the spotlight, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii. Despite what the “experts” might say, it’s certainly possible. Like weather forecasters and economists, political pundits often are proven embarrassingly wrong. Voters from both parties have a tendency to recalibrate rather quickly, and quite unexpectedly, toward candidates they believe actually might have a chance of winning. In 2004, for example, Democratic...

    SEATTLE -- They say misery loves company. But for the Seattle Mariners, misery is theirs alone. You might pardon Seattleites for rooting for the St. Louis Cardinals in their futile attempt to reach the World Series this year. Not because we're fans of Paul Goldschmidt or Yadier Molina, but because they were our last hope to keep the hometown Mariners from a rather dubious distinction. But the hopes died when the Washington Nationals completed their sweep of the Cardinals in the NLCS Tuesday night. The Nationals are World Series bound for the first time in their franchise history, and the...

    Former Florida governor and Democratic Rep. Charlie Crist endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden’s candidacy for president. Crist, who was a Republican while serving as governor from 2007 to 2011, said that Biden has the ability to appeal to “independent and disaffected Republicans” needed to win Florida in a race against President Trump, according to the Tampa Bay Times. “Joe Biden’s record of getting things done speaks for itself,” Crist said in a Thursday statement. “He has always put the American people above party lines and will continue to as President.” “We need a president whose objective at the end...

    Mayor de Blasio apologized on behalf of New Yorkers for the Trump presidency Saturday as he continued his long-shot White House bid in New Hampshire. “Let me issue a formal apology on behalf of the people of New York — I’m sorry you got to know Donald Trump,” Hizzoner said in a speech at the state’s Democratic Party Convention. “New York did not send its best to Washington in this case. But this New Yorker is willing to get rid of him for you.” The half-empty hall — which had been brimming during addresses by front-runners like former Vice President...

    As Democrats try to win control of the White House and the Senate in 2020, they face a geographical puzzle — the path to the presidency may conflict with the one to a Senate majority. Democrats’ best shot at the White House is to win back their old turf — the Rust Belt states heavy with working-class white voters who have become increasingly difficult to hold in the party’s tent. But the path to winning the Senate travels through what many believe is the Democrats’ territory of the future. College-educated suburbanites, young people and minorities make up the winning coalition...

    On today’s show we dig into the first night of round two of the Democratic Party’s presidential debates. From the craziness of Marianne Williamson to semi-sane voices who warned about the party going so far left that they lose, the debate had it all. If you were looking to have free stuff promised to you, last night’s debate was for you. Free health care, free college, free entry into the country … the only “free” that didn’t warrant a mention from anyone on the stage was individual freedom. Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren clashed with Rep. Tim Ryan and...

  • Abrams And O’Rourke Get Participation Trophies

    The Democratic Party has lowered the bar to schlep two election losers to a status reserved for winners. They continue to refer to failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams and failed U.S. Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke as ‘rising stars’—a moniker typically used to describe someone who comes out of nowhere to win a significant election and whose resume has significant achievements. O’Rourke and Abrams have neither. However, they are routinely awarded participation trophies. Abrams' additional reward was to deliver the Democratic response to President Trump’s 2019 State of the Union speech after losing her race. Remember when Robert Francis “Beto”...
