  • Massachusetts 4th Congressional District: Thousands of ballots found in Franklin, Jesse Mermell’s campaign solicits recount signatures The race is still too close to call

    A recount could be looming in the 4th Congressional District race between two Democrats as more uncounted ballots surfaced on Thursday. Officials in Newton, Wellesley and Franklin on Thursday restarted counting primary ballots after Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin filed a court order to authorize local poll workers to continue counting ballots that were received on time and had not been tallied by the end of Tuesday night. In Franklin, poll workers Thursday evening were counting about 3,000 uncounted ballots — much more than the previously estimated 600 uncounted ballots, according to a spokeswoman for the Secretary of the...

    After a dismal performance in New Hampshire Tuesday, Deval Patrick is suspending his presidential campaign. "[T]he vote in New Hampshire last night was not enough for us to create the practical wind at the campaign’s back to go on to the next round of voting," Patrick said in an email to supporters Wednesday.

    On Monday, former Gov. Deval Patrick (D-Mass.), one of the latecomers in the 2020 Democratic race, insisted that former Vice President Joe Biden's support among black voters "has always been soft." A new national poll from Quinnipiac seemed to confirm that idea, showing Biden's support among black voters cratering and diverting to other candidates. "Well, I love Joe, but that support has always been soft," Patrick said in an interview Monday. "I think that’s mostly about name recognition, I totally get that, and he’s earned it. But I’ve spent more time in South Carolina than any other candidate… [and] it’s...

    Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) said Sunday on MSNBC that the 2020 presidential hopefuls who are white had “blemishes on their record about their relationships with black people.” When asked about 2020 hopeful Pete Buttigieg, Waters said, “You know, one’s record will speak for itself. If there are facts about what he has done or what he has not done, then he’s going to have to try and make people, you know, believe that he understands where he made mistakes and promises to do better and be able to articulate how he’s going to do even better than he’s done in...

    A campaign event for former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, who launched a late Democratic presidential bid last week, reportedly was canceled Wednesday evening when only two people showed up. Patrick was scheduled to speak at Morehouse College in Atlanta, a historically black men's college located not far from the site of Wednesday night's Democratic presidential debate. The event was organized by students from the New Deal Democrats.

    Newsbusters ^ | November 19, 2019 | P.J. Gladnick
    Justice for Taylor Swift! Yeah, now that's a cause that your average working American can get behind. And it is also a cause taken up by presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren which has resulted in widespread mockery. Okay, the mockery hasn't quite reached the levels inspired by the reaction to her hyping of a DNA test last year that revealed that Warren is maybe 1/1024 Native American but it is up there. Warren tweeted her support for Swift in the multi-millionaire's contractual dispute with other millionaires that we should somehow care about as reported by Variety on Saturday in, "Elizabeth Warren Backs...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) signaled that she is open to a universal basic income – an idea that has been championed by fellow presidential contender Andrew Yang (D). Warren expressed her willingness to consider a UBI, which quite literally amounts to the government handing individuals and families a “basic” income per month regardless of employment or income status, in a Washington Post survey that asked, “Should the federal government pay a universal basic income to every American adult?

    The Stop Warren Primary Democrats reap the radical disaster they sowed. Tue Nov 19, 2019 Daniel Greenfield 37 Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. The Democrat 2020 primaries started around stopping Trump, now they’re about stopping Warren. Senator Elizabeth Warren has the worst poll performance of any of the front runners. She’s radical, abrasive, and she’s alienating the money people whom the Democrats need to win national elections. Too bad that Warren is exactly what they deserve. Radical parties get radical nominees....

    New York Times ^ | November 19, 2019, | Neil Irwin
    ... This year, American workers and their employers owe a combined 12.4 percent on Social Security payroll taxes for income up to $132,900 (rising to $137,700 in 2020). They owe nothing on earnings above that level. Some Democrats in the thick of the presidential race and on Capitol Hill now seek to change or eliminate that cap — potentially placing a new double-digit tax on high earners, with several plans focusing on earnings above $250,000. ... The result would be a large tax increase on high earners, even before other changes a Democratic administration might contemplate, such as increasing income...

    If I were one of those phony political consultants, I would have charged Deval Patrick an initial $ 100,000 for taking my advice to run for president. Since I am not, I will waive the fee. I gave the former Massachusetts governor that advice in a political column that ran in the Boston Herald Sept. 21, and in the Lowell Sun and Sentinel & Enterprise a day earlier.

    A new Quinnipiac poll shows that Pete Buttigieg is polling terribly with black voters in South Carolina – even worse than Marianne Williamson. The Quinnipiac poll released on Monday shows frontrunner Joe Biden with a commanding lead among South Carolina voters, with 33% percent of respondents saying they would likely support him. The two closest candidates to Biden are Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, who are polling at 11% and 13% respectively Buttigieg has 6% among all likely voters in the poll, just ahead of billionaire Tom Steyer who sits at 5%. Breaking down the responses by race and...

    **SNIP** Although none of the Democratic candidates explicitly rebuked Mr Obama's comments, Mr Sanders mounted the strongest defence of his policy platform. Answering questions on a forum aired by Univision , a Spanish-language TV network, he was asked whether Mr Obama was "right" to say voters didn't want systemic change. Mr Sanders, who describes himself as a democratic socialist and progressive, laughed and said: "Well, it depends on what you mean by tear down the system." "The agenda that we have is an agenda supported by the vast majority of working people," he said. "When I talk about raising the...
  • Elizabeth Warren’s Tax Plan Would Bring Rates Over 100% for Some

    Wall Street Journal ^ | November 15, 2019 | Richard Rubin
    Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has unveiled sweeping tax proposals that would push federal tax rates on some billionaires and multimillionaires above 100%. That prospect raises questions for taxpayers and the broader economy that experts are starting to ponder: Under which circumstances would taxpayers have to pay those rates? How might that change their behavior? And would investment and economic growth suffer? Potential tax rates over 100% could result from the combination of tax increases the Massachusetts senator proposes for the very top tier of investors. She wants to return the top income-tax rate to 39.6% from 37%, impose a...

    Newly-entered 2020 candidate Deval Patrick boasted that the Democrats are the "party of the woke." Appearing on MSNBC on Thursday after officially launching his presidential campaign, the former Massachusetts governor was asked about the "vulnerability" of his involvement in Bain Capital, the investment firm that previously dogged Mitt Romney's 2012 campaign. "You’re not running in a Republican primary, you are running in a Democratic primary," MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace told Patrick. "Your party has moved to the left." "First of all, I love that the party has moved to the left. I love that we are the party of the...

    Could this be why Deval Patrick decided to decamp for Bain in the first place? Not long before leaving office, then-Governor Patrick fired two officials at the State Sex Offender Registry Board, in part because they had attempted to force his brother-in-law Bernard Sigh to register as a sex offender. Sigh had pled guilty in 1993 for marital rape and served a short prison sentence, and Patrick’s political opponents dug it up in 2006 in an unsuccessful effort to derail his gubernatorial bid.In 2014, Patrick got his revenge: On Monday, Patrick, still seething over the story eight years later,...

    Joe Biden is barely hanging on as the frontrunner and Barack Obama just slapped him in the face with Deval Patrick. Never before in the history of the modern presidential campaign have we seen such a thing. The news former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has decided to pull the trigger on a late presidential run is nowhere near as interesting or consequential as the why behind his decision.
