  • Report: White House Debates Whether to Let Democrats ‘Pick Apart’ Pence Phone Call

    The White House is reportedly debating whether to let Democrats “pick apart” the transcript of Vice President Mike Pence’s telephone call with the leader of Ukraine as an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump enters a new phase. Speaking to reporters earlier this month, Pence said he had no issue with details of the call being released publicly. “I’d have no objection to that, we’re discussing that with White House counsel as we speak,” the vice president said after wrapping up remarks to supporters at Manning Farms in Des Moines, Iowa.
  • DNC raises thresholds for December debate

    The halfway mark of the Democratic debate calendar is coming up, and the sixth debate will likely feature the smallest stage yet. New thresholds announced by the Democratic National Committee for the sixth debate — which will be hosted by POLITICO and PBS on Dec. 19 in Los Angeles — represent only a modest step up from the criteria for the next debate in November. But they could still seriously endanger the participation of all but the top five candidates.. To make the December debate, candidates must hit 4 percent support in at least four DNC-approved polls of primary voters...

    The New York Times and CNN co-sponsored the recent Democratic presidential debate. The New York Times has not endorsed a Republican for president since 1956. Prior to the Mueller report, the influential paper published story after story about alleged Russian collusion with the Trump presidential campaign. Project Veritas, the investigative reporting outfit that uses undercover video, recorded CNN employees complaining about the cable news organization's anti-Trump agenda. On one video, a voice, identified as CNN president and CEO Jeff Zucker, can be heard all but instructing his staffers to focus on impeachment, to the exclusion of what taped staffers say...

    Babylon Bee ^ | October 16 2019
    WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Republican National Committee has launched an ambitious fundraiser to help the Democrats televise a debate every weeknight. The move is expected to drum up significant support for the Republicans, not on their own merit but on the wackiness of the Dems. "Look, it's tough for us to raise money by just saying the same talking points we've been using for years," said RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel. "Frankly, a lot of our policy positions are kind weird and not all that conservative. But if we can just let the Democrats talk for hours every night, we're sure to win."...
  • Democrats hate Tulsi Gabbard because she reminds them what they used to stand for

    "I think it is important for us to send a signal that we are not hellbent on regime change,” presidential candidate Barack Obama said in 2007. He was talking about Iran but citing former President George W. Bush’s disastrous precedent of ousting Saddam Hussein in Iraq. Obama defined his candidacy in opposition to that 2003 regime change war and eventually became president. Times have changed. Most Democrats in Tuesday night’s CNN/New York Times presidential debate blasted President Trump’s decision to withdraw American troops from northern Syria and said they believe his decision endangers the Kurds. But only one candidate said...

    With all the rancor in politics these days, the CNN/New York Times Democratic debate on Tuesday night delivered a rare moment of comity: Twelve Democrats agreed, apparently without compensation, to appear in a Donald Trump ad. Other points on which the Democrats came together in peace and harmony: -- Trump should be impeached. -- Abortion is great. -- Obamacare sucks. At least we’re all finally agreed on Obamacare! Obamacare has given us a system -- to quote Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont -- “which is dysfunctional, which is cruel, 87 million uninsured, 30,000 people dying every single year, 500,000 people...
  • Trump should swiftly reject the schedule of 2020 debates

    Washington Post ^ | October 15, 2019 | Hugh Hewitt
    Last week, the Commission on Presidential Debates announced the schedule of 2020 presidential debates. President Trump should quickly dismiss that schedule as unacceptable and announce that if any debates will be held at all in 2020, it will be only after extensive, direct negotiations between him and the eventual nominee of the Democratic Party and their respective designated representatives. And those negotiations should begin from a premise that the Republicans will no longer play by the biased rules of a deeply unbalanced Manhattan-Beltway media elite. Explicitly articulating this declaration of intent now, along with the possibility that, as in 1968...

    There's one Democrat idea that clearly has Joe Scarborough very worried about the potential harm it could do to the eventual Dem candidate: Beto O'Rourke's proposal of a mandatory "assault weapon" buyback, aka, gun confiscation. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough scalded the proposal as "a stupendously bad idea," calling it "radical" and likely to be found "unconstitutional." Joe fretted that O'Rourke's gun-confiscation proposal, along with his support for stripping tax-exempt status from religious groups that don't support same-sex marriage, would be "be repeated around the clock between now and next November by whoever is the Republican nominee." And so it...

    TodayÂ’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) I didnÂ’t watch last nightÂ’s Democrat debate, because IÂ’m sane and would prefer to stay that way. Besides, there was baseball on TV. But I did follow the festivities in real time on social media, and quickly realized I didnÂ’t miss anything that wasnÂ’t entirely predictable. For example, there was this lovely moment, when the two near-octogenarians in the race, perhaps surprised to see each other still alive and kicking, gave each other a big hug: Image may contain: 2 persons Awwww, isnÂ’t that cute? ItÂ’s like that big family reunion back...

    Each of those candidates on the stage seemed oblivious to the reality of the last three years — the fabulous economy, lowest unemployment in decades, international trade renegotiated to our benefit, millions no longer on food stamps. Our military, eviscerated by Obama, is being repaired. Manufacturing has been revitalized, and the border, despite the intransigence of the Democrats, is slowly being better controlled. The wall is being built. Everything Trump has done since being elected has been effective; he has tried to keep his campaign promises despite the Democrats' vow to see him impeached from day one. And no matter...

    Fox News ^ | October 15 2019 | Douglas E. Schoen
    Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts was the big winner Tuesday night in Westerville, Ohio in the most crowded presidential debate ever held. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., also delivered strong performances. Former Vice President Joe Biden and the other eight candidates on stage came out the losers in the three-hour Democratic presidential primary debate. Warren’s strong performance will likely solidify her frontrunner status ahead of Biden and Sanders. She emerged the clear winner of the night by showing she was sharp and prepared as she fended off attacks from candidates who...

    CLAIM: CNN and the New York Times failed to ask a single question about climate change during the fourth Democrat debate on Tuesday evening. VERDICT: True. Though CNN held a separate town hall on the subject, the moderators never brought up the issue during the debate, enraging left-wing critics on social media. Washington State governor Jay Inslee — who bowed out of the presidential race after focusing his campaign almost exclusively on the issue of climate change — took moderators to task on Tuesday evening for failing to ask a single question about climate change.

    Fox News ^ | 10/15/19 | Sam Dorman | Fox News
    Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared to stumble over his words while discussing the economy and taxes on Tuesday night. "Why should someone who's clipping coupons in the stock market may, in fact, pay a lower tax rate than someone who in fact is, like I said, a schoolteacher and a fireman? It's ridiculous," Biden said. Biden made those comments while appearing at the fourth Democratic debate. Biden has long been the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination but is facing a potential challenge Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who has been gaining traction in key states.

    Rasmussen ^ | October 15, 2019
    Even Democrats aren’t overly thrilled about their party’s presidential debates so far, but one-in-five who’ve followed the debates say they’ve switched candidates since they began. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 79% of Likely Democratic Voters have closely followed the debates among the Democratic presidential candidates, with 43% who have followed Very Closely. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Among Democrats who have followed the debates, 53% still favor the candidate they liked before the debates. But 19% have switched their support to another candidate because of the debates. Twenty-eight percent (28%) remain undecided....

    The upcoming twelve-candidate Democratic presidential primary debate is probably going to be another mess, but one highlight will be the return of Tulsi Gabbard to the stage — good news not just for Michael Brendan Dougherty, but for everyone who wants to see an actual debate. In a series of prime-time meetings that have included a lot of repetitive platitudes and all-too-convenient anecdotes about an American everyman that candidates met on the trail, one of the few genuine bits of drama comes from the question of who Gabbard will go after and why. The Hawaii congresswoman’s debate performances haven’t done...

    ABC host George Stephanopoulos mentioned Cruz's warning that Texas could be a potential background state in the 2020 presidential election and noted that five Republican House members from the state have come forward saying they would not seek reelection next year. Cruz claimed that the third Democratic presidential debate in Houston on Thursday was a "very bad night" for Democrats because the candidates did not mention the economy's relative strength through the third quarter of this year. "If you look at Thursday night, the entire night of the debate, not a single Democrat talked about jobs, not a single Democrat...

    Watching the Democratic presidential debate Thursday night left one clear impression: Donald Trump won. Please don’t shoot the messenger. My left index finger recoiled a bit as it reached for the “T” on the keyboard. But it’s true for this reason: Democrats are too earnest. They care too much. They’re too smart. They know too much. Whoever says, as California Sen. Kamala Harris did, “The American people are so much better than this” needs to get out more. This isn’t to recommend that primary candidates should be more like Trump, not that they could. But as a panel of candidates,...

    Full title: Newt Gingrich: Dem presidential candidates doing a great job showing voters why Trump should be reelectedRemember the exciting, unpredictable and entertaining 2015-16 Republican presidential debates? Who would candidate Donald Trump take down this week? How would he dominate media questioners yet again? Whether you were for Trump, appalled by him or just curious, each debate was worth watching. Trump was so different – and so cheerfully direct and aggressive – that people began to see the debates as a sort of reality TV (which is what they should be). Our country is better when more people want to...

    Joe Biden told the crowd at a fundraiser in Houston Friday that he did a good job at the Democratic debate the night before but that there was always room for improvement. “Last night I thought was a good night. I think I could have done better. I will do better, God willing,” he said to applause from the partisan group of supporters.
