  • Bernie Sanders Said "Everybody Brings Some Negatives" When Asked If Gender Is An Obstacle For Women Running For Office

    CONCORD, New Hampshire — Bernie Sanders said at a forum in New Hampshire that women still face obstacles when they run for office, describing being a woman as a potential “problem” and noting that anyone who runs for office “brings some negatives” when it comes to appealing to the American electorate. The language instantly re-opened a conflict between supporters of Elizabeth Warren and Sanders over questions about electability, gender, and a private conversation between the two senators where they discussed whether a woman can win in 2020. “Everybody has their own sets of problems,” Sanders said during a forum sponsored...

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) is calling for the U.S. to legalize currently illicit drugs. “If we take that step to legalize and regulate, then we're no longer treating people who are struggling with substance addiction and abuse as criminals and instead getting them the help that they need,” the 2020 presidential candidate said at a campaign stop in Merrimack, New Hampshire on Friday. She was responding to a voter who asked whether her plan to end the war on drugs centered on more harm reduction and treatment or if it involved moving to “legalize and regulate narcotics so that you're...
  • The New York Times endorses both Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren for president

    The New York Times endorsed not one, but two candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination on Sunday. The paper’s editorial board gave their blessings to progressive candidate Elizabeth Warren and centrist Amy Klobuchar in a surprise endorsement that split from tradition. The editorial board announced their endorsements toward the end of an episode of “The Weekly,” the Times’ television show that airs on Hulu. In an article posted to the Times’ website soon after the episode aired, the board noted their two endorsements were a “break with convention.” In endorsing Warren, the board wrote her campaign writes seriously about policy,...

    As we reported earlier, Joe Biden told Politico that he might consider two of his former competitors as his running mate if he were to win the Democratic nomination for president. Former Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday he would consider former presidential candidates Beto O’Rourke and Julián Castro to be a running mate or a member of his Cabinet if he is elected president.

    Warren has lied about being an American Indian, about sending her kids to private school, and even being fired from a teacher position for being pregnant. And now she's lying about Bernie Sanders. Tuesday night’s CNN debate was a set-up. And that’s not some internet fever dream, it’s an observation shared by reporters from Rolling Stone and The Huffington Post to Fox News and The Daily Caller. Even late-night comedy picked up on the game.The trap was set the day before, when the hosts of the debate published a story claiming that in 2018, during a private meeting between Sens....

    Bernie Sanders supporters are known for their steadfast loyalty to the socialist Vermont Senator, and some are promising to sit at home on Election Day if Joe Biden becomes the party’s nominee. These supporters warn that nominating another establishment candidate will ensure Trump’s reelection because they’ll sit it out.Sanders’ supporters feel he “isn't getting his due though he's proven to have staying power in public opinion and fundraising, even after suffering a heart attack last October,” reports the Washington Examiner. “As of last week, he leads a tight four-horse race in Iowa ahead of the first-in-the-nation caucuses on Feb....

    PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton has advice for Democratic voters faced with an unsettled field of presidential contenders: pick a winner. “This is an election that will have such profound impact, so take your vote seriously,” Clinton said. “And for Democratic voters, try to vote for the person you think is most likely to win. Because at the end of the day, that is what will matter — and not just in the popular vote, but the electoral college.”

    Unless a heretofore hidden tape turns up, we'll never know for sure who is lying about the 2018 meeting between Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren in which she alleges he told her a woman couldn't beat President Trump. But consider this: who's been sinking in the polls and needed to shake things up? Who leaked the alleged conversation to the media? And above all, who has an established reputation as a serial dissimulator on everything from being a Native American, to getting fired because she was pregnant, to sending her kids to public school? I mean, her nickname is Lieawatha,...

    ANKENY, Iowa (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said Saturday the Oval Office requires a wartime veteran, a niche he occupies exclusively among top-tier candidates in his party’s race for the 2020 nomination. During an interview on Iowa PBS in suburban Des Moines, Buttigieg was asked if there’s value in a president who had faced hostile fire. Buttigieg, a Naval intelligence officer in Afghanistan in 2014, noted he had been present for rocket attacks while stationed at Bagram Airfield, and later faced potential danger as an armed driver in Kabul. Another presidential candidate, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, served...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders has been steadily climbing in popularity this year and is now tied with former Vice President Joe Biden for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination among registered voters, according to a Reuters/Ipsos national poll. The online poll, released Thursday, shows that 20% of registered Democrats and independents said they would back Sanders over 11 other candidates to run in the general election against President Donald Trump, an increase of 2 percentage points from a similar poll that ran last week. Another 19% supported Biden, 12% said they would vote for Senator Elizabeth Warren,...

    Pete Buttigieg does not want pro-life Christians to “impose” their religious beliefs on others when it comes to protecting the unborn, but he would push his own pro-abortion beliefs on Americans if elected president. The pro-abortion Democrat and South Bend, Indiana mayor recently spoke to an Orange City, Iowa crowd about why he, a self-described Christian, supports abortion on demand, according to the Washington Examiner. Buttigieg reportedly touted his faith while talking about welcoming immigrants and refugees, expanding food stamps, and helping the poor, referring to various scripture references to support his position. When asked about abortion, however, he defended...

    Free Beacon ^ | January 17, 2020 | Andrew Stiles
    Underperforming presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) has portrayed herself as a bipartisan dealmaker by taking credit for sponsoring bills she ultimately voted against. "I do work with the other side," Warren said in October during a radio interview in New Hampshire. "I've gotten more than a dozen bills passed into law, and they've been bipartisan. And that's just been since Donald Trump has been elected president." A post on the "Fact Squad" section of Warren's campaign website similarly boasts that "Donald Trump has signed more than a dozen of Elizabeth's proposals into law" and lists 15 pieces of legislation Warren sponsored. Three of...

    American Thinker ^ | January 14, 2020 | Daniel John Sobieski
    Mayor Pete, as he likes to be called, who has led the cry that Iran's shooting down of a Ukrainian airliner using a Russian missile is somehow the fault of an American president, Donald J. Trump, is among those who say it was "collateral damage" resulting from Trump trashing the flawed and unworkable Iran nuclear deal and his zapping of terrorist Quds Force commander Gen. Qassem Soleimani. Knowing that Democrats obey Rahm Emanuel's famous observation that a crisis is a terrible thing to waste, Mayor Pete wasted no time attaching his name to the slander that the 176 innocents aboard...
  • The 'Last Real Negus Alive' Attacks Buttigieg With 'Wokeness'

    By now it should be clear: Michael Harriot, the self-described "last real Negus alive," doesn't have anything of substance to say about Pete Buttigieg, a leading Democratic presidential candidate; he just wants to write something that sounds "woke." And to pick a Twitter fight over the rather bland, innocuous and unremarkable statements Buttigieg made almost a decade ago seems to be just that: much ado about nothing. But it gets worse. In the process of writing his bombastic yet typical screed about a "white man of privilege" that doesn't get how "black people were broken by racism," Harriot completely omitted...

    SOUTH BEND — African-American leaders gathered Wednesday night to counter what they said was a national media narrative that Mayor Pete Buttigieg has little support from black city residents. They talked about Buttigieg programs aimed at helping neighborhoods, and they relayed stories of their positive experiences with his administration during his two terms as mayor. But it didn’t take long for lingering divisions in the city to surface. Protesters from Black Lives Matter South Bend frequently interrupted the event as they stood in the back of a room at the Charles Martin Youth Center, holding signs and yelling things to...

    On Monday, during an interview with the Des Moines Register, 2020 presidential hopeful mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Pete Buttigieg said drug possession should not result in jail time. Buttigieg said, “Incarceration should not even be a response to drug possession. What I have seen is while there continues to be all kinds of harms associated with drug possession and use, it is also the case that we have created in an effort to deal with a public health problem, we have created an even bigger problem — a justice problem, and it’s own form of a health problem when...

    There’s something about Mayor Pete. As the Midwestern political upstart climbs in Democratic presidential primary polls, Pete Buttigieg also has managed to get deep under the skin of progressive activists. Social media networks now light up with the latest Buttigieg-induced controversy over his policy positions, his turns of phrase, even the swanky locales of his private fundraisers. The Gen Z crowd mocks him as “Mayo Pete,” his events have been disrupted by liberal protesters and his fresh-faced newness is seen as a drawback.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | December 13, 2019 | Jacob M. Schlesinger and John McCormick
    Pete Buttigieg has leapt to the top tier of Democratic presidential candidates by touting himself as a moderate alternative to Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. But his economic platform still embraces an expanded role for government and a shift to the left. Mr. Buttigieg has a Wall Street tax plan with new levies on financial transactions and capital gains. He wants to uproot decades of labor law, giving unions more clout to counter big business. And he proposes raising Social Security taxes and benefits, while also contemplating slavery reparations for African-Americans. The South Bend, Ind., mayor has tangled with Sens....

    MARK SHIELDS: But you're talking about Donald Trump's counteroffensive. And I think the worst mistake that the Democrats could make is to look for a Democratic Donald Trump. I mean, somebody who can go toe to toe with him and insult to insult with him. American voters, after a president lets them down and disappoints, go looking for the exact opposite of what was missing. They went after George Bush and sort of the off-the-cuff anti-intellectualism. They sought the cerebral, almost removed presence of a Barack Obama. After Watergate and Vietnam and Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon and all that...
