    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) leads the Democratic primary field in California by 18 points, according to a survey released Wednesday. In the poll from the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) first reported by the Los Angeles Times, Sanders has the support of 32 percent of likely voters. Joe Biden registered support from 14 percent of poll respondents, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) trailed the former vice president by 1 percentage point in the survey. Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg (D) were tied at 12 percent each.
  • The case for letting senators vote secretly on Trump's fate

    Donald Trump will go down in history as the third US president to be impeached. Yet no president has ever been convicted and removed from office as a result of impeachment, and it appears unlikely that Trump will be, either. While no Republican senator has indicated he or she will vote for Trump's removal, prominent members of the GOP like former Arizona Senator Jeff Flake claim that at least 35 would do so if they were allowed to cast their ballots in secret.

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler explained Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" why he rejected requests from Republican members of his committee for a day of hearings with their own witnesses. "The list of witnesses [that] they asked me to call, I said no to because they are irrelevant," Nadler said. "They can appeal to the full committee if they wish and we’ll have a vote on that. But like any trial judge, you keep the witnesses to the relevancy... Adam Schiff, they wanted, is not a relevant witness. He didn't witness anything." House Judiciary Republicans asked for...

    Aria Neukam says she loves that Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has lots of plans. She knows the senator has an education plan, a Medicare for All plan, an environmental plan. Ms. Neukam says she doesn’t know exactly what is in those documents, but that isn’t the point. She says she thinks President Trump’s governing style is ad hoc and unorthodox, and she prefers a leader who has spelled out what they are going to do and how to do it. “In truth, when she says ‘I have a plan,’ I trust that there is some well-researched plan out there,”...

    The House Intelligence Committee and lawyers for the whistleblower who filed a complaint about President Donald Trump's conduct are discussing extreme measures to protect the individual's identity amid growing concerns about his or her safety, according to several sources familiar with the process. It is still unclear when the whistleblower might ultimately talk with the committee. But talks are underway looking at several options to attempt to prevent the whistleblower from being identified or having his or her name leaked to the press. Among the measures being discussed are the possibility of using an off-site location, limiting Hill staff and...

    House Democrats are looking to prevent the whistleblower from being identified by holding the person's testimony at a remote location and potentially changing their appearance and voice. Democrats are going to great lengths to hide the whistleblower's identity out of fear the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee could leak their identity, according to The Washington Post, which cited three people familiar with the discussions. Democrats are considering holding testimony outside the Capitol as well as a staff-only session that would bar lawmakers from questioning the whistleblower, according to the Post. Democrats are also weighing options to distort the whistleblower's...

    This month marks the centenary of Pete Seeger. Singer and "activist", he kept going almost to the end, wafted down by delirious admirers to Manhattan's financial district a decade back to serenade the Occupy Wall Street protestors. I believe he sang them "Where Have All The Flowers Gone?", although "Where Have All The Showers Gone?" might have been more appropriate with that crowd. We shall explore the history of "his" most successful song a little later today. But here's what I wrote about him upon the occasion of his 90th birthday: This week marks not only the first hundred days...

I think they’ve already cracked up. I think they’re already insane. But they are now in the process of taking the Democrat Party with them. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is taking names. She’s now taking names of supposed moderates in the Democrat Party, and she is singling them out, and she is threatening them that if they ever vote with Republicans on anything, that she is personally gonna go out...

    FULL TITLE: Bernie Sanders Unleashed: Trump Is the 'Most Racist, Sexist, Homophobic, Bigoted President in History' Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) went after President Trump Tuesday while he was campaigning for Maryland gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous (D). He called Trump “the most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history." Sanders told the crowd that Democratic campaign staffers across the country “are working to make certain that the agenda of the most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history will go nowhere because Democrats will control the House and the Senate.” Unlike former Vice President Joe Biden, Sanders said earlier this week...

    Perhaps the word “swoon” in the headline strikes some of my amigos as unnecessarily hyperbolic?—as typical “click-bait?”Fair enough. Let’s have a closer look at the issue for a more accurate evaluation. Here’s indignant Trump SOTU boycotter Barbara Lee (D-CA) explaining her indignation and boycott:“On January 20th, I will not be celebrating or honoring an incoming president who rode racism, sexism, xenophobia and bigotry to the White House."Now here’s Lee upon “copping a backstage pass” (so to speak) upon one of her frequent red-carpet visits to Cuba to “meet and greet” the jailer and torturer of the most and longest suffering black,...

    Undeterred by the violence over the planned removal of a Confederate statue in Charlottesville, Virginia, municipal leaders in cities across the United States said they would step up efforts to pull such monuments from public spaces. The mayors of Baltimore and Lexington, Kentucky, said they would push ahead with plans to remove statues caught up in a renewed national debate over whether monuments to the U.S. Civil War's pro-slavery Confederacy are symbols of heritage or hate. Officials in Memphis, Tennessee, and Jacksonville, Florida, announced new initiatives on Monday aimed at taking down Confederate monuments. And Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, a...

    Fox News ^ | 4/16/18
    Pope Francis had sharp words Saturday for people who are saying his brief exchange with Bernie Sanders at the Vatican is meddling in the U.S. presidential race, recommending they “find a psychiatrist.” The pope made the remarks hours after Sander, the Vermont senator seeking the Democratic nomination, said they met briefly at the Vatican and discussed such issues as income inequality and climate change. The pope later told reporters aboard a plane bound for Greece that he shook hands with Sanders, wife Jane, and another couple as he was leaving the Vatican. “This is called good manners, and it is...

    "Dalton Trumbo was a socialist, but he loved being rich." So says Bryan Cranston, who stars in "Trumbo," out this week, and plays the screenwriter who went to prison with the Hollywood Ten in the time of Harry Truman. Actually, Trumbo was not a socialist. Bernie Sanders is a socialist. Trumbo was a Stalinist, a hard-core Communist when the Communist Party USA was run from Moscow by the Comintern, agents of the greatest mass murderer of the 20th century.

    U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Thomas Donohue was barely finished calling for the further impoverishment of American workers (i.e. “immigration reform”) when he shows up as a guest of Cuba’s Stalinist regime and gives a speech at the University of Havana calling for a further fleecing of American taxpayers (i.e. ending the so-called Cuba embargo.) “For years, the US Chamber of Commerce has demanded that our government eliminate the commercial embargo on Cuba. It’s time for a new approach,” proclaimed Donohue this week to an ovation from communist apparatchiks, some who in 1960 stormed into almost 6000 U.S. owned businesses...

    If this Harvard University student got her way, free speech on campus would be abolished and professors with dissenting views fired, because radical leftism is the only permissible political philosophy and the First Amendment is a barrier preventing modern colleges from fulfilling their proper role as indoctrination camps. Her name is Sandra Korn. She is a senior at Harvard and columnist for the Harvard Crimson. In a recent column, Korn unambiguously insisted that the university should stop guaranteeing professors and students the right to hold controversial views and pursue research that challenges liberalism.

    RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, there´s so much going on out there. The lawlessness of this Regime knows no bounds. There´s nothing stopping this man from doing anything. If he wants to raise marginal tax rates, he can just do it. Nobody´s gonna stop him. Here is the latest. As you know, the Regime recently delayed the implementation of the employer mandate for three years, until 2016. This means that employers who have a hundred or less employees will be subject to the mandate. (Snip) I mean, this is absolutely lawless. It is against the law. They cannot, ladies and gentlemen,

    New York Times ^ | January 28, 2014 | John Pareles
    Pete Seeger, the singer, folk-song collector and songwriter who spearheaded an American folk revival and spent a long career championing folk music as both a vital heritage and a catalyst for social change, died Monday. He was 94 and lived in Beacon, N.Y. Mr. Seeger’s career carried him from singing at labor rallies to the Top 10 to college auditoriums to folk festivals, and from a conviction for contempt of Congress (after defying the House Un-American Activities Committee in the 1950s) to performing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial at an inaugural concert for Barack Obama. In his hearty...

    It has taken the best part of three years, but the realisation is dawning on our leaders that there is likely to be only one outcome in Syria’s brutal civil war, and that is the Assad regime declaring victory. Ever since the Syrian rebels were overrun by al-Qaeda and other Islamist movements of a similar uncompromising hue, I have been warning that, rather than backing the rebels, the West’s interests would be far better served by doing everything in its power to halt the violence, even if it means the detestable regime of President Bashar al-Assad surviving. In the pragmatic...

    The suspension of Phil Robertson from A&E’s Duck Dynasty is outrageous in a nation that values freedom, according to social critic and openly gay, dissident feminist Camille Paglia. “I speak with authority here, because I was openly gay before the ‘Stonewall rebellion,’ when it cost you something to be so. And I personally feel as a libertarian that people have the right to free thought and free speech,” Paglia, a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, said on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Thursday. “In a democratic country, people have the right to be homophobic as well as...
