    Thursday, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson opened his program with a warning of what could come in a Biden administration. According to the Fox News host, if Democrats had their way, America will be similar to the country’s urban areas, and he used New York City as an example. “What’s their plan?” he said. “Well, in a sentence, they’d like to make the rest of America very much like our biggest cities have become: squalid, dangerous, chaotic and unhappy. They’d like to do to your neighborhood what they have done to New York City. The main thing they’ve done to...

    In the Joe Biden-Bernie Sanders “Unity” platform, Democrats are vowing to provide free, American taxpayer-funded health care to illegal aliens who are able to enroll in former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The proposed Democrat Party platform, known as the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations, would restart the DACA program — allowing millions of illegal aliens to enroll — and ensure they are provided with taxpayer-subsidized Obamacare plans. The platform also would allow all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the U.S. to purchase healthcare coverage in the federal marketplace and more quickly allow...
  • ABC/WaPo Poll: 15% of Bernie supporters will vote for Trump as Biden faces “massive enthusiasm gap” in general election

    “Indeed, strong enthusiasm for Biden among his supporters – at just 24% – is the lowest on record for a Democratic presidential candidate in 20 years of ABC/Post polls. More than twice as many of Trump’s supporters are highly enthusiastic about supporting him, 53%.” Biden has only bare majority (51%) support among Democrats, and a 24% enthusiasm gap in a match up against Trump. From the ABC News poll write-up: Former Vice President Joe Biden has emerged as Democrats’ top choice for the presidential nomination in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, but with only bare majority support within his...

    Los Angeles Democrat seeks “new path of support and collaboration” with Communist Cuban regime. “Congresswoman Karen Bass, chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, is undergoing vetting as a candidate to be Joe Biden’s running mate,” Bo Erickson of CBS News reported on June 24. In March, the five-term Los Angeles Democrat endorsed Biden for president, but even some Democrats were troubled by one of Bass’s previous endorsements. “The passing of the Comandante en Jefe is a great loss to the people of Cuba,” said Bass in a statement after Fidel Castro passed away on November 25, 2016.  “I hope together,...

    Vermont’s food scraps ban that starts July 1 is the last step in a multi-year process of reducing waste in landfills. The Universal Recycling Law was unanimously passed by the state legislature in 2012 in response to the state’s stagnant recycling rates. According to a 2013 study, an estimated 50% of Vermonters' trash included recyclable or compostable materials, like food scraps and leaf and yard debris. First, you need to find something to store the food scraps in. Morris recommended a large container with a lid, which can be recycled from something already on hand or bought from a hardware...

    Joe Biden might lose his third presidential bid to a septuagenarian socialist turning the Democratic Party into the U.K. Labour Party, and yet, he can't help but aim his fire at the 38-year-old former mayor of the 308th largest city in the country.

    Popular podcast host Joe Rogan is under fire for an old podcast clip that has surfaced in which he laughs over comments his friend made about coercing women to perform oral sex on him. Attention to celebrities' thoughts on sexual harassment and assault heightened this week after multiple women came forward and alleged that comedian Chris D’Elia sexually harassed them when they were underage. Twitter users resurfaced a clip from 2011 when Rogan hosted comedian Joey Diaz on his podcast. In the clip, Rogan laughs after Diaz boasted that he wouldn't allow women comedians onstage without performing oral sex on...

    Thursday on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, host Joe Rogan said left-wing media have “completely ignored” former Vice President Joe Biden’s repeated verbal flubs and judged that the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee is “clearly” in some form of “cognitive decline.” JOE ROGAN: I’m seeing this one thing that I keep hearing over and over again from people of the left that really disturbs me is this concession that what you’re voting for is the Cabinet, you’re voting for the Supreme Court, you’re voting for someone who’s not going to reverse Roe vs. Wade. That’s what I keep hearing from my...

    Podcaster and comedian Joe Rogan predicted President Trump will have no trouble defeating Joe Biden in the general election if Democrats pick the former vice president as their nominee. “You have to be able to call out shit that’s wrong on your side,” Rogan said on a recent episode of his podcast. "And this is one of the problems that the Democratic Party is having right now with this Joe Biden guy." Democrats, Rogan said, "got to be able to call it out."

    President Donald Trump got over 100,000 more votes in this week’s Georgia primary than Joe Biden. According to the most recent results posted by The Washington Post, Trump received 809,881 votes in the state’s Republican primary, while Biden collected 702,460 votes in the Democrats’ contest. Trump ran unopposed, while Biden faced candidates who had already dropped out of the race. Still, the president received more votes than Biden and the second place Democrat in the contest, Sen. Bernie Sanders, (82,017 votes ) combined. According to Newsweek, Trump outperformed former President Barack Obama’s totals from the Georgia primary in 2012. Obama...

    Even by the standards of partisan vitriol being hurled in all directions amid civil unrest and the coronavirus pandemic, a remarkable dispute is raging among Bernie Sanders alumni in the aftermath of his second failed presidential campaign. Current and former Sanders staffers have lashed out at one another in recent days, concerning both general gripes about working with the Democratic establishment and personal shots at individuals’ post-campaign activities. Former Sanders speechwriter David Sirota has been critical of the campaign, tweeting repeatedly about its failures and how those involved, including himself, “should accept their blame” for Sanders’ loss.

    ... Last week Mr. Biden made a huge concession to the man he defeated, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and the Vermont socialist’s wing of the Democratic Party. The two men announced six “unity task forces” to “explore possible policy initiatives” on climate change, criminal justice, the economy, education, health care and immigration. Mr. Biden selected five members for each group and Mr. Sanders three; both men named a co-chairman for each committee. The two of them portrayed this as an effort to unify Democrats, which Mr. Biden called “key to defeating Donald Trump.” He said the task forces “will be essential...

    Score one for former Democratic presidential candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders and Andrew Yang. A federal appeals court on Tuesday agreed with a lower federal court judge’s ruling that the Democratic presidential primary contest must be included on the ballot when New York holds its primary on June 23. *snip* Sanders, the populist senator from Vermont, suspended his presidential campaign in April and endorsed presumptive nominee Joe Biden a week later. But Sanders pledged to keep his name on the ballot in all upcoming primaries and caucuses to accumulate as many delegates as possible at this summer’s convention.

    The stunning revelation by longtime operative Donna Brazile that the Hillary Clinton campaign secretly took control — literal control — of the Democratic National Committee a year before Hillary became the party’s nominee is the talk of American politics. As it should be. Brazile’s piece in Politico describes her shock at the discovery of formal legal paperwork between the two entities when she took the reins at the DNC in August 2016. Brazile had been tapped for the job when DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced to resign. Leaked e-mails had shown how Schultz had been putting her finger...

    In her new book Hacks, Donna Brazile — the former interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman — alleges that Hillary Clinton “rigged the [party’s] nomination process” against populist candidate Bernie Sanders in the 2016 primaries. “I had found my proof [of rigging] and it broke my heart,” wrote Brazile in an exerpt of her book published by Politico Magazine today. The said rigging, according to Brazile, was discovered in an agreement and explained as follows: “The agreement—signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC, and Robby Mook [Clinton campaign manager] with a copy to Marc Elias—specified that in exchange...

    On October 10, Wikileaks released part two of their emails from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta. Friday, Wikileaks released their first batch of Podesta’s emails, which included excerpts from Clinton’s Wall Street transcripts that reaffirmed why Clinton refused to release them in full. During the second presidential debate, Clinton confirmed their authenticity by attempting to defend one statement she made in the speech about having a public and private stance on political issues. She cited Abraham Lincoln, a defense comparable to her ridiculous invocation of 9/11 when pressed on her ties to Wall Street during a Democratic primary debate. The...

    If completed, the pipeline, which has spent the past decade in political and legal limbo, would help carry some 830,000 barrels of crude oil a day from Canada to refineries in Texas. Although Biden’s climate plan was more ambitious than anything proposed by Obama, it attracted criticism from liberals who faulted Biden for not pledging to ban fracking and for attending a fundraiser co-hosted by a co-founder of a natural gas company. Beyond that, Biden’s environmental critics worry he will not try to rein in greenhouse gas emissions as aggressively as climate scientists say is necessary. In 2018, a panel...
