  • And Then They Came for Bernie

    A poetic version of the confession of German pastor Martin Niemöller reads, “First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me.” A chilling reminder of the effects tacit complicity in propaganda and acquiescence to identity politics can have...

    WASHINGTON - Marianne Williamson, the self-help guru who warned of the “dark psychic force” unleashed by Republican President Donald Trump, suspended her quixotic outsider campaign for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination on Friday. Williamson won admirers if not voters with a spirituality-focused campaign that promoted a politics of love and of conscience. She advocated a Department of Peace and embraced an economic justice agenda to repair damage done by so-called trickle-down economics. “I stayed in the race to take advantage of every possible effort to share our message. With caucuses and primaries now about to begin, however, we will not...

    Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson announced that she is officially suspending her campaign. "I ran for president to help forge another direction for our country. I wanted to discuss things I felt needed to be discussed that otherwise were not. I feel that we have done that," she wrote to supporters on her website in an entry published on Friday. The best-selling self-help author vowed to stay in the race following a mass lay-off her national campaign staff, leaving her with just a "skeletal staff "and her long-time assistant who stepped in to be her Interim campaign manager.

    CNBC displayed the wrong photos Monday of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates Andrew Yang and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) on its "Squawk Box" program. The error came as the show was discussing fourth quarter fundraising numbers. Redpoint Ventures founding partner Geoff Yang was shown in place of Andrew Yang, while Gabbard's photo was that of former 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), which quickly got the attention of Yang supporters on social media. SNIP
  • Biden Goes Full-on Fascist in Targeting Fossil Fuel Executives for Prison

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    Remember, Quid Pro Joe is the “moderate” among the leading Democrat presidential contenders. – Earlier this week, Joe Biden promised to imprison fossil fuel executives for the alleged impacts their companies have had on the climate in a clear effort to pander to the Democrat Party’s radical base. In making the pledge, Biden – the so-called “moderate” in the Democrat field of candidates – joins leftist radicals like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth warren in promising not to just further regulate coal, oil and natural gas in the U.S. but to imprison executives from those key U.S. industries. As reported by...
  • 2020 Will Be the Year of the Left-Wing Freak-Out

    If you thought 2019 was crazy, you ain’t seen nothing yet. As radical as Democratic candidates and elected officials were last year, this year it will get worse. As droolingly insane and violent the liberal mob was last year, this year it will be worse. If they acted that way in an off year, just imagine what they’ll do with everything on the line. As much as it may seem like the radical fringe of the party has absorbed the whole thing, the rest of the party still exists. They’ve just made a calculation, a bet, that there are enough...

    Fox News ^ | January 2 2020 | Paul Steinhauser, Andrew Craft
    Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign announced early Thursday that the populist firebrand from Vermont raised over $34.5 million over the past three months. The eye-popping October-December fourth-quarter haul was $9 million more than Sanders brought in during the July-September period – and the largest quarterly figure to date for any of the Democrats seeking the White House this year. The massive fundraising report came as Sanders – who’s making his second straight bid for the presidential nomination – has surged in national and early-voting-state polling the past two months.

    Remember when the Democrats thought “money politics” was a bad thing? That moral certainty started to crumble when Hillary Clinton outspent Donald Trump by a factor of at least 2, and still went down to defeat. And while vilifying Wall Street makes for good progressive virtue-signaling, the Dems are now the party of plutocrats, buying with welfare and money transfers the support of an underclass kept angry and dependent by progressive policies that hamper job-creation and reward idleness and dependency. President Trump’s tax and regulations cuts have boosted job growth and income at the lower end of the market, imperiling...

    It's one of the oldest games in the liberal media's playbook: trying to pass off liberal Democrat candidates as "moderates." CNN ran the con this morning . . . but an interesting Democrat actually reminded viewers of the truth: that the so-called "moderates" are actually to the left of where Barack Obama was when he first ran for president. CNN's New Day devoted a segment to the question of which Democrat Iowa caucus-goers might choose if they're looking for a "moderate." The supposed "moderates" mentioned by host Alisyn Camerota and reporter Jeff Zeleny were Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, and Amy...

    First of all, let me go on record as saying I've never thought Joe Biden would win the Democratic presidential nomination. Biden is this election's Rudy Giuliani. Rudy was the big name in the 2008 GOP primary. Everyone thought he was unbeatable. He never won a single state and quickly dropped out of the race. I've argued for many months that Biden will go nowhere in this Democratic primary. First and foremost, Democrats don't want a straight old white male. Then there's Biden's mind. It's clearly not functioning at top speed anymore. Biden is not just old but slow and...

    On March 3, 2020—next year’s Super Tuesday—14 states will hold primary elections to decide their preferred presidential candidates. These contests draw the focus of some candidates more than others and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has already spent more than any Democratic candidate on TV ads in the participating Super Tuesday states. According to a December CBS News/YouGov Battleground Tracker, Bloomberg (4%) currently stands in fifth place across the Super Tuesday states. Joe Biden (28%), Elizabeth Warren (25%), and Bernie Sanders (20%) poll as the top first choice nominees among registered Democratic voters in the 14 states. In...

    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.
  • Trump leads 2020 Democratic rivals head-to-head: Poll

    President Trump is leading his potential 2020 Democratic rivals in hypothetical head-to-head match-ups, according to new polling that shows a degree of “candidate loyalty” among the Democratic contenders that could cap their potential voter pools in a general election. Mr. Trump held a 3-point, 44% to 41% lead over former Vice President Joseph R. Biden and led Sen. Bernard Sanders of Vermont by about 5 points, 44% to 39%, according to the USA TODAY/Suffolk University poll released Monday. Mr. Trump led Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts by about 8 points, 45% to 37% and he led Mayor Pete Buttigieg of...

    It's too soon to predict that the Democrats will go the way of the Whigs, but the oldest political party in the world is tripping over its own doctrines; making a public spectacle of its inability to coherently sponsor debates; riven by ideological fissures that seem to be widening; driving away two bedrock constituencies, the white working class and black voters; and hitching itself to a doomed impeachment effort that could cost it dearly next November. It's a great time to be alive if you are a Republican! Consider the forthcoming presidential debates. Next Thursday's scheduled debate is being boycotted...

    While Democrats in Congress have been conducting impeachment hearings in recent weeks, President Trump has been filling judicial vacancies in the federal court system at a rapid clip – and that appears to have potential 2020 opponent Joe Biden worried. “Look at how the federal court system is changing,” Biden told a group in Las Vegas on Tuesday night, according to a reporter for ABC News. “Four more years of the same kind of appointments, you’re going to see a court system that is fundamentally, for two generations, locked in a way that’s a death grip that does not make...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign denied a report on Wednesday that Biden has signaled he would only serve one term in the White House if elected in 2020. "Lots of chatter out there on this so just want to be crystal clear: this is not a conversation our campaign is having and not something VP Biden is thinking about," Biden's deputy campaign manager and communications director, Kate Bedingfield, said in a tweet. Politico reported on Wednesday that four people who speak regularly with the former vice president said it was unlikely that he would run for reelection in 2024...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden has been signaling to aides that he would likely serve only one term in office if elected president in 2020, according to a report on Wednesday. Campaign advisers and some top Democrats have been debating whether he should publicly announce his intention not to seek a second term, but Biden is concerned that going public could make him a lame duck and rob him of political capital, Politico reported. “If Biden is elected,” a prominent adviser to the campaign told the news website, “he’s going to be 82 years old in four years and he...
