    House panel votes to constrain Afghan drawdown, ask for assessment on 'incentives' to attack US troops BY REBECCA KHEEL - 07/01/20 11:24 PM EDT House panel votes to constrain Afghan drawdown, ask for assessment on 'incentives' to attack US troops © Getty The House Armed Services Committee voted Wednesday to put roadblocks on President Trump’s ability to withdraw from Afghanistan, including requiring an assessment on whether any country has offered incentives for the Taliban to attack U.S. and coalition troops. The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amendment, from Rep. Jason Crow (D-Colo.), would require several certifications before the U.S. military...

    Three House Democrats, including a former 2020 hopeful and a member of “The Squad,” have self-quarantined after developing symptoms of coronavirus. Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) and Katie Porter (D-Calif.) each announced on Wednesday that they were cautiously remaining at home while monitoring their symptoms for the rapidly spreading virus, which has already appeared in one House Republican and one House Democrat. Moulton, a veteran who ran an unsuccessful bid for the 2020 Democratic nomination, wrote in a Facebook post that he and his wife had developed symptoms of the virus and consulted his primary health provider, the...
  • Rep. Seth Moulton tells military to question Trump's orders

    A lawmaker who earned the Bronze Star during combat in Iraq as a Marine officer is denouncing President Donald Trump's foreign policy as "rudderless," and calling on active-duty military officers to question the orders they're getting from the commander in chief and refuse to follow them if they're not lawful. Rep. Seth Moulton, a Massachusetts Democrat and former presidential candidate who ended his White House bid in August, made the remarks in a speech at the Atlantic Council on Thursday, a day after Trump triumphantly addressed the nation and announced that Iran seemed to be backing down from hostilities.
  • Pro-Abortion Congressman Seth Moulton Drops Out of Democrat Presidential Race

    Another bottom tier Democrat has dropped out of the race for president — and this time it’s pro-abortion Congressman Seth Moulton of Massachusetts. In April Moulton joined the crowded group of Democratic Party 2020 hopefuls, saying he is running for president in 2020 against President Donald Trump, who has governed pro-life. But today he ended his bid unsurprisingly. Moulton is the third Democrat to drop out of the presidential race this past week following Jay Inslee and John Hickenlooper. Moulton will formally end his candidacy Friday when he gives a speech at the DNC in San Fransisco. “Today, I want...

    NYT ^ | Aug. 23, 2019 Updated 10:29 a.m. ET | By Jeffery C. Mays
    Trailing badly in the polls and in fund-raising for 2020, Mayor Bill de Blasio hopes that an hour on CNN Sunday before the nation’s voters can change his standing. He’s entrenched toward the rear in fund-raising totals. He rejects the validity of the various polls showing him at zero percent. And he also acknowledges that he will probably not qualify for the third Democratic presidential debate next month. Yet Mayor Bill de Blasio refuses to “accept the premise” of questions about the wisdom of his continued candidacy, even as other candidates who shared his political standing, like Gov. Jay Inslee...

    Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., is dropping out of the 2020 presidential race. “I think it’s evident that this is now a three-way race between Biden, Warren and Sanders, and really it’s a debate about how far left the party should go,” he told The New York Times

    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...

    Third term, Charlie? How about fixing the second term first? Yet, If Gov. Charlie Baker wants an unprecedented third consecutive term as governor, as is the talk, he probably will get it. Despite the ongoing, systemic problems with the MBTA ( Massachusetts Bay Trauma Authority), the State Police overtime embezzlement scandal, and now suspended driver’s license disaster at the pathetically incompetent Registry of Motor Vehicles, nothing sticks to the man. I’m working on things, the governor says, and in the long run everything is going to work out just fine. So, trust me, he adds. And the people do, which...

    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,...

    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...

    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...

    The Washington Post is discounting America’s win in World War Two because American forces were all “racists.” I guess that we now have to delete America’s part in World War Two from the history books to suit liberal sensibilities just like we are erasing statues to military people all across the nation. The attack on the Allied Forces in WWII came in an idiotic liberal article with the unwieldy title of, “Allied leaders were anti-Nazi, but not anti-racist. We’re now paying the price for their failure.” The article by a foaming-at-the-mouth lib named John Broich — who claims to be...

    Marie Harf is stepping down from her post as a political commentator for Fox News Channel and co-host of Fox News Radio’s Benson and Harf—a show co-hosted with Guy Benson—to join Team [Seth] Moulton as deputy campaign manager for policy and communications, The Daily Beast confirmed. Harf’s hire adds more foreign-policy credentials to the 40-year-old veteran’s early presidential campaign. Prior to becoming a talking head, she worked as a senior communications adviser to former Secretary of State John Kerry and at the CIA as a Middle East analyst. She also ran former President Barack Obama’s national-security strategy during the 2012...

    Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) has joined the long list of Democrats who’ve entered the 2020 presidential race. “I’m running for President to build a strong and safe country, create the jobs of the future, and elect leaders we can be proud of,” the former Marine said on Twitter Monday morning. "I'm running because we have to beat Donald Trump, and I want us to beat Donald Trump because I love this country. We've never been a country that gets everything right. But we're a country that, at our best, thinks that we might," he said in his video announcement. “Decades...

    As clunky, repetitive and miscellaneous as Biden’s rallying cry was, what is more striking is that he was eating Elizabeth Warren’s lunch in her home state. Biden might as well have mentioned the “ragged middle class.” The previous Friday, it was Warren out on the picket line in Somerville, delivering coffee and doughnuts to the striking workers and extolling the virtues of unions and working people. Stop & Shop, the senator said, “wants to squeeze our workers right here in Massachusetts.” Now it is undeclared frontrunner Biden who has effectively squeezed out Warren right here in Massachusetts, and made it...

    “Overwhelming” is the only word which properly describes the growing list of 2020 Presidential candidates vying to unseat Donald Trump. To date, there are the officially declared, the yet to declare, and a handful of teetering outliers. The outliers aren’t in the running per se, but in the event no Democrat is able to garner the party nomination, one of them might be persuaded to step up to the podium. The Declared Candidates:Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Robert O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, Corey Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Andrew Yang, Julian Castro, Kirsten Gillibrand, Jay Inslee, Tulsi Gabbard, John Hickenlooper, John Delaney,...

In that case, let me ask the same question again with slightly different wording... And so it seemed to go on the July 22 State of the Union on CNN as host Jake Tapper appeared to act as a latter day Inspector Javert hot on the trail of his Jean Valjean in the form of businessman and former Trump adviser Carter Page who was clearly amused by Tapper's dogged persistence over what...

    Sorry, Seth, but the Democrats have now fully embraced the S-word they previously avoided so that means the Bolshevik wing of the party, along with their media allies, is purging mere Mensheviks such as yourself. In the wake of Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez upset victory against an establishment Democrat on Tuesday, a reckoning is now taking place against those perceived as even slightly less than full radical. Among those apparently being slammed for their supposed moderation, despite a straight liberal voting pattern, is Democrat Congressman Seth Moulton.  Enabling poor Seth's purge from what are now mainstream Democrats is HuffPost reporter Daniel Marans with his June...

    The leading Democratic candidate for a Virginia House seat the party is targeting in 2018 moved to the state just a year-and-a-half ago, but you'd never know it from watching his campaign's first ad.Roger Dean Huffstetler, who is both outraising and outspending his Democratic opponents in Virginia's largely rural fifth district, announced his campaign less than a year after he moved in the summer of 2016 to Charlottesville, a blue city located near the center of a rural red district. His first ad—which, based on a nearly $50,000 expenditure, appears to have been created by a major D.C. advertising firm...
