  • Harris Drops Out, Leaving a Snowy-White Democrat Field Behind

    What are the Democrats going to do about all these racist…ummm…Democrats???? – Kamala Harris became the latest of the 6,000 or so Democrat presidential candidates to drop out of the race on Tuesday, and naturally the Democrat/Media propaganda complex ran with the “America is a racist nation” narrative in response. Let’s examine that notion for a moment and take it to its logical conclusion. Kamala Harris ended her campaign for one reason and one reason only, and that is because registered Democrat voters told liberal pollsters that they don’t plan to vote for the California Democrat Senator in the Democrat...

    ...A democratic socialist—Bernie Sanders—is among the top contenders to be the next Democratic nominee for U.S. President. His rival and fellow Senator, Elizabeth Warren, is also among the top tier of candidates, declaring herself a capitalist who wishes to transform American capitalism as we know it, with a wealth tax, a Green New Deal and the elimination of private health insurance. A more centrist candidate, Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., illustrated the shifting winds when he recently declared that “neo-liberalism is the political–economic consensus that has governed the last 40 years of policy in the U.S. and U.K....

    On 18 different occasions in 2019, a Massachusetts EBT card was swiped in Hawaii — including one that was used twice at a posh island resort where rooms fetch $800 a night, a report published Monday said. The Boston Herald said it reviewed more than 2 million EBT expenditures over the past year and found thousands of out-of-state transactions that included withdrawals in Las Vegas and Alaska. The Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cards are issued to needy citizens who qualify and are replenished monthly. The state's Department of Transitional Assistance bars cardholders from using the cards for vacation services —...
  • Where are the real 2020 centrists?

    The most persistent narrative of the 2020 race for the Democratic nomination is that it amounts to a battle between leftists (Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren) and centrists (Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, and now Michael Bloomberg) over who is best suited to take on and take down President Trump. But what if there are no true centrists in the 2020 race at all? Oh sure, there are plenty of candidates who portray themselves as centrists — and other candidates, like Sanders and Warren, who delight in skewering these less left-leaning options for ideological heresy. But do the three Bs — Biden,...
  • Trump Campaign Mocks Kamala Harris Dropping Out: ‘Congratulations Tulsi Gabbard!’

    President Donald TrumpÂ’s re-election campaign ribbed Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) after announcing that she is ending her flailing bid for the White House. Trump War Room, a Twitter account managed by the presidentÂ’s campaign, tweeted a congratulatory message to 2020 presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) after Harris suspended her campaign. GabbardÂ’s rivalry with Harris was a mainstay on the campaign trail after the Hawaii Democrat eviscerated the senatorÂ’s record as a prosecutor at JulyÂ’s primary debate. According to the New York Times, Harris campaign aides point to the incident as one of several factors that led to the candidateÂ’s...

    Tulsi Gabbard trashed the Democratic Party as “not the party that is of, by and for the people,” accused Kamala Harris of trafficking in “lies and smears and innuendo” and attacked Pete Buttigieg as naive. Her performance at Wednesday’s debate earned an attaboy from the Trump War Room. And some rank-and-file Democrats are at wit's end with the congresswoman who Hillary Clinton called “the favorite of the Russians.” “The question is whether she seriously hopes to be the nominee or if she has another agenda … her attacks on other candidates and her positions on issues seem very personal, not...

    A Hawaii man is accused of conducting an elaborate cyberstalking campaign against a Utah woman and her father by sending unwanted repairmen, food deliveries and other visitors to their home. The father estimates that between August 2018 and March more than 500 people came to their North Salt Lake home at the alleged stalker's behest, and that some of the visits stemmed from the suspect "posting the family's address on Craigslist stating that the homeowner wants drugs and prostitutes to come to the house," according to a federal motion to detain the suspect.(snip) There are few details available about the...

    Aides of Democrat presidential hopeful Kamala Harris are saying fellow candidate Tulsi Gabbard is the reason their campaign is suffering. New reports are detailing the slump in the California senator’s bid as advisers say the drop in polls started after the July debate where Gabbard slammed Harris’ record. During the debate, Gabbard took aim at Harris’ history as a prosecutor by saying she was in a position to help people yet she didn’t. She also said Harris laughed off marijuana use comments while imprisoning people for the same crime, and using prisoners as so-called “cheap labor.” “She blocked evidence that...

    The costs of global warming continue to mount up. Californians pay nearly the highest electricity prices in the continental United States, about twice as much per kilowatt-hour (kwh) as in nearby Oregon and Washington. Nevertheless, California's prices are probably not high enough. Some of the fires plaguing the drought-stricken state were caused by electrical lines downed by falling trees and by malfunctioning transformers. These fires have caused billions of dollars of damage to homes and other property. The resulting lawsuits have bankrupted Pacific Gas and Electric (PGE). Ultimately, California's electricity consumers will have to pay for what it costs to...

    Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard took a shot at the media’s usage of the Democratic debates and compared the debates to “political reality TV” on a podcast Tuesday. Gabbard spoke on “The Joe Rogan Experience” with Rogan and Jocko Willink and discussed attacks from her fellow candidates, her presidential bid and her thoughts on the debates. Gabbard called the format of the debates “frustrating.” “You’ve got 60 to 75 seconds to get your point across, to talk about hey here’s my position, here’s what I would do with North Korea, here’s what I would deal with immigration reform in 60...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has taken the lead in New Hampshire, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) has experienced a significant surge in the Granite State, according to a post-debate Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll released on Monday. The poll, taken from November 21-24, 2019, among 500 likely New Hampshire Democrat primary voters, found Sanders retaking the lead in his neighboring state with 16 percent support, followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) with 14 percent, and Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) and former Vice President Joe Biden (D) closely behind with 13 percent and 12 percent, respectively. While six points separate the remainder...

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard accused Sen. Kamala Harris of “lies and smears and innuendos" during a fiery exchange at Wednesday night’s Democratic presidential primary debate, saying a Harris presidency would be more of the “status quo.” The tense moment began when Gabbard, D-Hawaii, was asked about her attack last month on Hillary Clinton -- the former secretary of state had suggested in an interview that Gabbard was a “favorite of the Russians." “Our Democratic Party is not of or by the people,” Gabbard said, blasting the Democratic establishment. “I’m running for president to be the Democratic nominee that rebuilds our Democratic...

    Seems old Willie Brown, the wizened lizard of California politics, knew what he was talking about when he said his former mistress, Kamala Harris, didn't have what it took to make it to the Democratic Party nomination for president. That's an understatement, given the slow-motion train wreck that her political campaign has now morphed into. According to a devastating exposé of the Harris campaign by Christopher Cadelago of Politico: BALTIMORE — Kamala Harris' campaign is careening toward a crackup. As the California senator crisscrosses the country trying to revive her sputtering presidential bid, aides at her fast-shrinking headquarters are deep...

    A New York man with famous parents posted a message on Twitter on Saturday night, urging people to donate to the 2020 presidential campaign of U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii. The request came from Sean Ono Lennon, the 44-year-old son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono. “Even if you are skeptical of @TulsiGabbard you can’t say she doesn’t deserve to be part of this race,” Lennon wrote. “She is the primary candidate who is adding to a conversation around ending unnecessary wars. Please donate a dollar. She only needs 3000 more individual donations.”

    At the start of this year, Kamala Harris’ supporters believed they would be popping champagne in 2020. Now the only question facing Harris is when to put a cork in her campaign. Should Harris drop out of the 2020 presidential race? Yes. At 55, she’s young. She can run again, but humiliating wipeouts in primary states will damage her permanently.

    The Hill ^ | 11/23/2019 | DOUGLAS MACKINNON
    Pete Buttigieg’s recent popularity surge in Iowa and New Hampshire has many speculating that President Trump could face a Democratic ticket in 2020 that he doesn’t want and fears the most — the South Bend, Ind., mayor and another candidate recently in the spotlight, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii. Despite what the “experts” might say, it’s certainly possible. Like weather forecasters and economists, political pundits often are proven embarrassingly wrong. Voters from both parties have a tendency to recalibrate rather quickly, and quite unexpectedly, toward candidates they believe actually might have a chance of winning. In 2004, for example, Democratic...

    Pete Buttigieg, whose popularity has surged in recent days, found himself the sudden target of attacks at Wednesday night's fifth Democratic primary debate but sought to stay on the offensive and make an appeal to the country's political middle with a blunt rebuke of Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders' "Medicare-for-all" plan. He was joined by several other candidates on stage in going after the health care overhaul, putting the party's far-left candidates on their heels over what Buttigieg called their "divisive" and unrealistic approach. Reflecting the ever-shifting dynamic in the race, meanwhile, Joe Biden had a mixed performance -- projecting...

    Pete Buttigieg came into Wednesday night’s debate bracing for an onslaught that never came. Yes, Amy Klobuchar and Tulsi Gabbard questioned his experience. Cory Booker dinged the young mayor’s résumé, pointed out that he himself is the “other Rhodes scholar mayor on the stage” and warned voters against picking a Democratic nominee with an “inauthentic” connection to African American voters — a bloc that has largely ignored Buttigieg’s campaign so far.

    U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is currently polling at just 1% nationally among the Democrats running for president, although she fares better in Iowa and New Hampshire. Who exactly are her supporters? According to the opinion poll analyses website FiveThirtyEight, the Hawaii Democrat’s support is “predominantly male” (her support among women is “practically nonexistent”) and “likely to fall outside of traditional Democratic circles.”
