    Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) said Tuesday that he plans to announce a reelection bid for 2024. The senator confirmed his plans to Cleveland.com, but declined to elaborate further. There is a longer answer, but that’s my point,” Brown said, according to Cleveland.com. “I haven’t formally announced, but I plan to.” Democratic strategists in recent months have pointed to Brown as a potential Democratic candidate for president in 2024 if President Biden does not seek another term. The president will turn 80 in November, and questions have swirled about his fitness to lead after a succession of harsh policy losses and...

    It’s been quite a political journey for Scott Brown and his family, and that journey could very well come to an end in today’s N.H. 01 GOP primary. In 2010, Brown pulled off a stunning upset in Massachusetts, winning the Senate seat held by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy and ending the Democrats’ filibuster-proof majority. In 2012, he lost the Senate seat to Democrat Elizabeth Warren. In 2014, he switched states — from Massachusetts to New Hampshire — to challenge Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H. He lost, but the issues he used in that campaign’s closing days (immigration, ISIS and Ebola)...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Kamala Harris called climate change an “immediate” and “urgent” crisis Monday as she detailed Biden administration efforts to respond to disasters such as deadly flooding in Kentucky and wildfires ravaging her home state of California. Harris was set to announce more than $1 billion in grants available to states to address flooding and extreme heat exacerbated by climate change. The competitive grants will help communities across the nation prepare for and respond to climate-related disasters. “The frequency has accelerated in a relatively short period of time,” Harris said. “The science is clear. Extreme weather will...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. - With Ketanji Brown Jackson set to take over Justice Stephen Breyer's seat on the Supreme Court today, aides have been hard at work changing all the restroom signs to "gender-neutral" so Jackson doesn't get confused when she has to use the restroom. "It's important to make accommodations for differently-abled non-biologists like KBJ," said SCOTUS Clerk Michael Qian. "We are excited that Ketanji will not only be here to represent women of color, but people of mental confusion as well." The clerks will also be hard at work striking all uses of the word "woman" from cases and...

    A new course at Brown University has sparked controversy after it was offered solely to minority students. The teacher training class in mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) was recently made available only to students who identify as Black, Indigenous or Latino. Anyone who identifies as BIPOC, regardless .. if they are a student at Brown ... The exclusion of white and Asian students raised the ire of one anonymous Brown student, who was turned away from the MBSR program because they don’t identify as BIPOC. In a May 13 complaint filed with the Foundation Against Intolerance & Racism (FAIR), a “civil...

    WASHINGTON - U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris will inaugurate a task force on Thursday to curb online harassment, fulfilling one of the Biden campaign's promises in the wake of a mass shooting that highlights a link between online abuse and violence. The task force will be co-chaired by the White House Gender Policy Council and National Security Council, according to senior administration officials who previewed the announcement in a call on Wednesday evening. "It's imperative that we commit to better understanding and addressing the nexus between online misogyny and radicalization to violence," a senior administration official said. One in three...

    The family of an unarmed black man who was shot and killed in his car by sheriff’s deputies over a year ago has reached a $3 million settlement with authorities. Andrew Brown Jr. was killed on April 21, 2020 by Pasquotank County sheriff’s deputies while they were serving drug-related warrants at his home. His family filed a $30 million civil rights lawsuit claiming he died because the officers displayed an “intentional and reckless disregard of his life.” As officers surrounded his BMW, Brown backed up and moved forward, prompting the deputies to open fire. He was fatally struck in the...

    A University of Pennsylvania professor drew ridicule online for suggesting that first responders waited too long to engage the shooter in Uvalde, Texas last week because “police didn’t give a damn” about “brown kids.” In a since-deleted tweet from Friday, UPenn Religious Studies and Africana Studies Professor Anthea Butler — who is also an MSNBC contributor — suggested that racism was responsible for the police failure to stop a gunman at a Texas elementary school in an attack that left 19 children and two adults dead.

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) invoked Abraham Lincoln and John Lewis during her commencement speech at Brown University on Sunday, calling on graduates to help unify the country. “I urge you to bring this spirit of unity to whatever you do,” Pelosi said. “It’s no secret that you graduate in a country deeply divided socially, politically, culturally. And there’s even more dangerous factions [that] seek to dispense with democracy altogether, but graduates, you are our hope,” she added.

    First lady Jill Biden expressed frustration that Kamala Harris was the top choice for vice president, according to an upcoming book from two New York Times reporters. An excerpt from Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns' forthcoming book, "This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America's Future," describes the vice presidential nomination process during Joe Biden's 2020 campaign. "'There are millions of people in the United States,' she began. ‘Why,’ she asked, ‘do we have to choose the one who attacked Joe,'" the authors wrote of a conversation Jill Biden had after she learned Harris became a leading...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Kamala Harris is naming Lorraine Voles as her new chief of staff, replacing Tina Flournoy who is leaving the administration, in the latest shakeup in her office, the White House said. Voles was brought into Harris’ office by Flournoy last summer, as the vice president faced a flurry of negative headlines and staff departures. She was Vice President Al Gore’s communications director and an adviser to then-Sen. Hillary Clinton in 2008. Harris’ deputy chief of staff, Michael Fuchs, is also leaving the White House in the coming weeks. Harris’ national security adviser, Nancy McEldowney, stepped...

    It's kind of fun watching democrats absolutely boil at the GOP questioning of Ketanji Jackson-Brown. It had everything you could ask for. Ted Cruz was pounding Dick Durbin. Cory Booker cried (again). Given the amount of democrat panties getting in a twist you'd think they never treated Brett Kavanagh like sh*t. But they did. But let's be honest here. She is going to be confirmed. She is a left wing radical. She will be a voice for criminals wjile caring little for victims. She really has no interest in the Constitution. She has no place on the Supreme Court. Ketanji...

In particular, the source stated that Senator Liz Brown was adamant, and emotional in the Republican Caucus meeting on Thursday, March 3rd, denouncing a provision in HB 1077, which required minors who use a firearm in a crime to be tried as adults.

"Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was [California] Assembly speaker. And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco."

Harris will meet with leaders in Poland on Thursday and their counterparts in Romania a day later, in what amounts to an extension of her recent trip to a global security conference in Germany. There, in the earliest days of the Russian invasion, Harris met with an array of European and...

    WILLIAMS, Calif. (AP) — Former California Gov. Jerry Brown is living off the grid in retirement, but he’s still deeply connected on two issues that captivated him while in office and now are center stage globally: climate change and the threat of nuclear war. The 83-year-old Brown, who left office in 2019, serves as executive chairman of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, which sets the Doomsday Clock measuring how close humanity is to self-destruction. He’s also on the board of the Nuclear Threat Initiative. In an interview with The Associated Press, Brown commended President Joe Biden for not raising...

Harris is traveling to Selma, Alabama to commemorate the 57th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday,” the day in 1965 when white state troopers attacked Black voting rights marchers attempting to cross the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Harris will visit with civil rights leaders before speaking at the foot of the bridge. The bridge, named for a Confederate...
