  • Biden Forgets He Hasn't Won, Puts Together a White House Transition Team

    04/17/2020 2:13:20 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 45 replies ^ | April 17, 2020 | Bronson Stocking
    Someone needs to explain to Joe Biden that he's the presumptive Democratic nominee, not the presumptive next president. The Democratic candidate is reportedly assembling a White House transition team with over six months to go before the general election. During a virtual fundraising event, Biden announced his campaign has already begun building a transition team, and the candidate would not rule out announcing cabinet nominees before November's election. "Sounds presumptuous," Biden acknowledged. "I don't want to say we started thinking about it a month ago -- we did -- because that sounds like I was certain this was going to...
  • Preserve Our Election

    We are facing one discrete problem in the mass of chaos surrounding this pandemic that we can and must address immediately -- the security of November's election. Voting in the traditional way requires us to do the very thing that epidemiologists and public health authorities have forbidden us to do -- gather in large groups for prolonged periods. That's inevitable when you must wait in long lines to vote. In Ohio, Governor Mike DeWine decided to postpone his state's primary election citing the health emergency despite a judge ruling that he lacked the authority to do it. The State Supreme...

    Where in the world is Joe Biden? The 2020 Democratic primary frontrunner is missing out on all of the big parties. He was a no-show at the California Democratic convention and he’s also RSVP’d in the negative for some other major cattle calls. Rather than the early primary/caucus states, Joe is knocking around in the swing states. That’s prompting some people, like Seth Mclaughlin at the Washington Times to ask the question… is Biden hidin‘? Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden has left his fellow 2020 presidential candidates and local party leaders in early voting states miffed with his light...

  • Britain Will Hold a General Election on June 8th: Is This the EU’s Weapon to Defeat Brexit?

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    UK Prime Minister, Theresa May has decided to call for a General Election on June the 8th. Her stated reasoning is that she will then have a proper mandate to carry out the policies she “will” be elected on. But there is much more to this than meets the eye. This is not a simple call for support, at this the most crucial time in Britain’s negotiations with the European Union, this may in fact be at the behest of the EU commissioners to derail (or at least water down) the final deal. The fact that EU grandees seem utterly...

    A pair of new polls out this weekend show the presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump and his likely Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton are both viewed unfavorably by more than half of U.S. voters. In a Washington Post-ABC News survey released Sunday, the candidates both registered net negatives in the double-digits, with 57% of the electorate saying they had unfavorable impressions of the respective candidates. Fifty-four percent of respondents to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll took a dim view of Clinton, while 58% looked unfavorably on Trump.
  • The GOP’s electoral-map problem is not about Trump. It’s about demographics.

    Republicans have a major electoral-map problem in November. Major. Donald Trump’s victory last week in Indiana’s primary not only effectively sealed the GOP nomination for the real estate billionaire but also brought into sharp relief how difficult it will be for any Republican to get to 270 electoral votes and beat Hillary Clinton to become the 45th president this fall. Start here: Eighteen states plus the District of Columbia have voted for the Democratic presidential nominee in every election between 1992 and 2012. Add them up, and you get 242 electoral votes.

    When she first sought elective office in 2000, capturing the U.S. Senate seat from New York once held by Robert F. Kennedy, then-First Lady Hillary Clinton inherited her husband’s Democratic political machine – the largest and most effective the country had seen since the Kennedy era. Now, as a former senator and secretary of state, Clinton has retooled that machine for the digital age, in ways that far exceed even the vaunted operation she put together for her bitter 2008 primary struggle against Barack Obama. Clinton’s reported $5 million technology and data mining operation, built upon the pioneering digital apparatus...

    Taking bets Hillary plays off health of her husband in the general election. My guess is when she see's she is losing, Bill will suddenly suffer a medical emergency and be hospitalized. Hillary of course will immediately rush to his side while the media goes nuts and calls for a halt to campaign in order to stop Trump momentum and allow for 24/7 coverage of a "brave and courageous" Hillary who is willing to sacrifice her dream to be by her husband.

    Allen West ^ | Feb 13, 2016 | Michele Hickford, Editor-in-Chief
    Going into tonight’s debate, Donald Trump holds a commanding double digit lead over Ted Cruz, and of course all the other GOP candidates. If he continues this pace, he will most certainly be the Republican nominee for president. But that’s actually not the most important victory. The most important win comes in November, when America actually votes for the next president of the United States. And to ensure we don’t have another four years of damaging progressive leftist leadership, we need to defeat the Democrat candidate. The problem is, according to polls right now, at this moment, Trump ain’t that...

    Britain’s governing Conservatives have hired Jim Messina, President Barack Obama’s former campaign manager, to advise them ahead of the 2015 general election. Messina was Obama’s national chief of staff for the 2008 presidential campaign and the president’s campaign manager in 2012. His organizational flair and social media strategy have been credited for helping secure Obama’s re-election. … Messina said Friday that he had “long admired Prime Minister (David) Cameron” and would be offering the Conservatives “strategic campaign advice.” …

    "The Federal Voting Assistance Program website published an incorrect deadline for the return of returning military ballots in Wisconsin." "The FVAB website incorrectly stated ballots must be returned by November 16. The actual deadline is 4 p.m. November 9. Any military ballots received in that intervening week would not have been counted by local and state election officials. MacIver News Service contacted the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board about the error on Tuesday and requested comment. "All Wisconsin absentee ballots are due by 4 p.m. the Friday after the election. The FVAP site was incorrect.." See rest of article at source.

    The economy is in a tailspin, with the worst statistics in decades, even after the Administration has made use of every statistical trick to tweak the way the numbers are calculated and reported. With honest reporting, unemployment would be recognized as being close to 20%... the Administration would be recognized for the most mind-blowing corruption in history… and the foreign policy disasters of 2011 would be recognized as having turned over at least two more Middle East countries to the islamofascists and jeopardized our security in countless ways. And yet… while such a record should guarantee the incumbent a resounding...

    Any of the Republican presidential primary’s frontrunners would beat President Obama in Tennessee if the presidential election were held today, the latest MTSU Poll finds. The same poll shows President Obama’s job approval rate hitting an all-time low in Tennessee, and his disapproval rate hitting an all-time high. The poll also probed knowledge of the state’s new voter ID law, preferences for addressing the finances of the state’s lottery-funded college scholarship program, perceptions about the quality of Tennessee’s public schools, and attitudes on several other issues. Conducted Oct. 3-14 by the College of Mass Communication at Middle Tennessee State University,...
