    CHARLES CURTIS, THE FIRST US VICE PRESIDENT OF NATIVE AMERICAN ANCESTRY It’s impossible not to notice that the left has made a cottage industry out of trashing Republicans and conservatives as racists and “angry white guys” while elevating Democrats as the party of racial diversity.As the Washington Examiner pointed out, “Joe Biden’s pledge to choose a woman as his running mate, and his consideration of several black female officeholders for the role, has spurred considerable chatter about diversity in the nation’s second-highest office.” The article went on to take note of an inconvenient fact for the left: Even if the...

    President Trump turned 74 today, not that the nation was paying much attention given the unrest in Atlanta. Actually, some Americans did notice. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< SNIP >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Lets try to figure how this division of labor might look, given the supposed short list of Biden running mates floating around the Internet. That includes, alphabetically: Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms; Florida Rep. Val Demings; California Sen. Kamala Harris; New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham; Obama national security advisor Susan Rice; and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Mayor Bottoms veep fortunes obviously rise or fall depending on her ability to quell her citys present...

    Joe Biden has longed to win the White House for more than three decades. If he finally makes it there after Novembers election, hes already talking about leaving.In an effort to ease concerns about his age, the 77-year-old presumptive Democratic nominee has said he wouldnt seek re-election if his mental or physical health declined. He has also referred to himself as a transition candidate, acting as a bridge to a younger generation of leadership.

    Few Americans can remember past vice presidents such as Charles Curtis, Charles Dawes or Thomas Marshall. In more recent memory, almost no one can recall vice presidential nominees who lost such as William Miller, Sargent Shriver or Lloyd Bentsen. John Nance Garner served as Franklin D. Roosevelt's vice president for two terms (1933-1941), but he nonetheless described his eight years as "not worth a bucket of warm spit." Except "spit" was a euphemism used in place of Garner's profane slang for urine. Garner was edged out of the job when leftist Henry Wallace replaced him. But later, as World War...

    A sexual assault allegation against presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden that was largely ignored in the mainstream media when it surfaced last month is starting to attract more attention, earning long stories in both The New York Times and Washington Post in recent days but prominent Democrats continue to stay silent on the story, including most of the women who have been discussed as potential vice presidential picks. The Biden campaign adamantly denies the allegation, as does a former staff member in Bidens Senate office from the time of the alleged incident. Fox News on Tuesday reached out...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden confirmed this week that Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) is one of the women he's considering as a potential running mate in his White House bid. Biden, who has already vowed to tap a woman as his vice presidential pick, said Tuesday night hes been considering Whitmer for the role for months, but that he is eyeing as many as 10 potential candidates. She made the list in my mind two months ago. Theres probably going to be a list, Im in the process of, Brian, well have it by mid-April, putting together an organization...

    2020 Democratic presidential frontrunner and former Vice President Joe Biden said Monday he is open to selecting a Republican running mate to join him on the ticket if nominated this summer. “Our 21-year-old son said the other night, ‘I wonder if Joe Biden would consider choosing a Republican as a running mate,’” one woman asked Biden during a New Hampshire town hall.“The answer is I would, but I can’t think of one now,” Biden responded. “You know there’s some really decent Republicans that are out there still, but here’s the problem right now…they’ve got to step up.”It was a smart...

    Vice President Mike Pence made his rounds on cable television on Sunday morning. One of the issues that repeatedly came up was crisis along our southern border.CNN's Jake Tapper grilled Pence on the inhumane conditions detainees are facing, including lack of toothbrushes, blankets, showers and other basic necessities. Pence, however, said it is Democrats who have withheld funding to address the situation."That's why the president has continually called on Congress. He's said, 'let's give them another two weeks before we engage in the deportation effort,'" Pence explained, referencing President Trump's last minute decision to put a deportation sting on hold....

    We’ve seen plenty of protest movements lately seeking to change the way we handle national elections. The most high-profile one is probably the push to do away with the Electoral College and go to a popular vote model. Others want the states to award all of their EC votes to the winner of the popular vote, leading to basically the same result. But there’s another effort underway to make a slightly more subtle, but still significant change. Vice.run is trying to gather signatures and build support for putting the VP on a separate ballot line, allowing the voters to directly...

    --SNIP--Joe Biden monetized his vice presidential powers, says author Peter Schweizer. Its pretty clear that the for-sale sign was open, and that a lot of foreign powers including foreign governments gave money to his son, Hunter Biden. "That demands investigation. Financial records from Morgan Stanley [are] very, very clear. It shows line after line after line of money going into an account that is marked Robert H. Biden, (Hunter Bidens legal name), and it shows huge sums of money coming in from Ukrainians, Chinese, Kazakhs, and anonymous LLCs. Its all there in black and white. Hunter Biden sat...
