  • Jim Banks Calls on Republicans to Oppose ‘Fake Infrastructure Deal’

    Breitbart ^ | 09.23.2021 | Sean Moran
    House Republican Study Committee (RSC) Chairman Jim Banks (R-IN) told Breitbart News during a press conference Tuesday that Republicans should oppose the “fake” $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill. Democrat leadership said that the House will vote on the $1.2 trillion so-called bipartisan infrastructure bill, otherwise known as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, on September 27. The bill, which faced significant opposition from Senate conservatives, passed with the help of 19 Senate Republicans in August. Axios reported Monday that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) might rely on House moderate Republicans to pass the legislation, as many progressive Democrats may oppose the...

  • Hillary Clinton in 2020? You laughed. Donald Trump didn’t

    The San Francisco Chronicle ^ | October 12, 2019 | Willie Brown
    Many of you dismissed my call for a Hillary Clinton versus Donald Trump rematch as lunacy. “Call me crazy,” I wrote. Some of the more polite responses did. But it definitely caught the attention of Donald Trump. How else to explain his out-of-right-field tweet Tuesday after yours truly wrote that Clinton would make a far stronger 2020 opponent than any of the Democrats now running? “I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren,” the president tweeted. “Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her...
  • Election Was Always Going to Be a Mudfight. If Biden Can't See That, He Should Get Out of the Way.

    Esquire ^ | October 7, 2019 | Charles Pierce
    I am excessively neutral on the subject of Joe Biden as a candidate for president. History would indicate that giving him another shot at it would be rather like handing Joe Hazelwood another supertanker. Nonetheless, considering the alternative, I'd walk through fire to vote for him. However, this piece in The New York Times is a vivid reminder that a) Biden's skills as a campaigner remain dodgy, and b) that he also seems to have lost a step as well. For more than a week, President Trump had been hurling unfounded accusations about Mr. Biden, his son Hunter and their...
  • Joe Biden defends son Hunter against Trump's attacks, says he will be part of 2020 campaign

    Former Vice President Joe Biden defended his son Hunter, who he said will be part of Biden's campaign for president. "I knew it was going to be this way," Biden said in an interview with the Reno Gazette Journal on Wednesday night after a campaign stop in Reno. Biden said he knew his family would come under attack, but after a sit-down with his five grandchildren three weeks before announcing he was entering the race, he made the decision. "They came to me and said, 'Pop, you got to run.'" When Biden said it would get really mean, his grandchildren...
  • Buttigieg fights to lock down Iowa LGBTQ vote

    CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — Friday’s LGBTQ Presidential Forum had the feeling of a home game for Pete Buttigieg, who was introduced as “a member of our community” to a rousing standing ovation. But that enthusiasm for Buttigieg has not guaranteed him a lock on this voting bloc in Iowa. Buttigieg covered topics including learning “the hard way” about “discrimination” when he came out — like the first time he saw his mayoral office’s annual blood drive on his schedule, Buttigieg said, and soon realized, “I can’t be part of it.” Yet some activists in Iowa said that Buttigieg had not...

    Pete Buttigieg, the first major openly gay candidate for president, is campaigning heavily in Iowa, a state that was among the first to sanction gay marriage. DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The question posed to Pete Buttigieg — gay, married and running for president — came from a supporter at an Iowa campaign stop: What should he tell friends who say America isn't ready to elect a gay man as president? That prompted a woman in the crowd to object with an expletive, igniting cheers from hundreds in the audience. Of the many intriguing things about Buttigieg and his candidacy...

    MACKINAC ISLAND, MI -- Vice President Mike Pence said there’s no doubt President Donald Trump earned the vote of Michiganders for a second time. Pence visited Mackinac Island Saturday for the biennial Michigan Republican Party leadership conference at the Grand Hotel, becoming the first sitting vice president to attend the event. Pence stumped for Trump’s reelection campaign, saying the president kept his promises to Michigan voters and it’s up to Republicans to spread that message in 2020. “It’s been two and half years of promises made and promises kept, but we are just getting started and that’s why we need...

    Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg suggested during Thursday night's primry debate that those who back President Trump and his immigration policies are “supporting racism." During the debate, Jorge Ramos, the Univision anchor and a moderator of the ABC News-hosted debate in Houston, rattled off several immigration-related Trump administration controversies, including family separations at the border, a travel ban that blocked entrance to the U.S. from seven majority Muslim countries, and dust-ups over the president's own incendiary rhetoric. Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., was asked if people who support Trump and his immigration policies are racist. “Anybody who supports...

    Democratic presidential hopefuls are hitting up potential donors after their participation in the seven-hour-long event. After participating in CNN's 10-candidate, seven-hour-long climate town-hall extravaganza on Wednesday night, some of the leading candidates for president are using the event to pitch potential donors. The Bernie Sanders campaign blasted a fundraising request pegged to the network's event on Thursday morning. "Last night I joined 9 other Democratic presidential candidates at CNN's Climate Town Hall, and there is no question that our Green New Deal plan to address the climate emergency is the most ambitious plan of anyone else in this race," the...

    Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore may be lacking general political acumen, but perhaps he at least knows how to give a fairly accurate prognosis of events to come when it comes to Democratic politics. On Thursday, he issued Democrats a dire warning: Nominate former Vice President Joe Biden and risk alienating progressive voters come 2020. Writing a lengthy Twitter post, Moore first attacked Biden for attending a fundraiser hosted by Andrew Goldman, the founder of the natural gas company Western LNG, and argued that the former vice president is far too similar to Hillary Clinton. "Last night on CNN, a student...

    Pete Buttigieg has tapped into the New York fundraising scene better than any other 2020 Democratic candidate — and he’ll be back this Labor Day weekend to rake in more big bucks. The South Bend, Indiana, mayor already brought in $3.7 million from New York state — including $2.9 million just from New York City, according to donor data provided by the Center for Public Integrity and analyzed by The Post. He bests all other Democratic White House hopefuls in the Big Apple — by a landslide — including New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who raised $885,000 in...

    ANDERSON — Vice President Mike Pence told an enthusiastic crowd of 3,000 conservatives Monday night that he was in South Carolina’s Upstate for only one reason: to ensure President Donald Trump wins reelection next year. “It’s time for round two, everybody,” Pence said at U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan’s 9th annual Faith and Freedom BBQ fundraiser. “It’s on.” Pence listed a litany of what he views as the strongest accomplishments of the Trump administration, including low unemployment, increased military spending and a raft of new conservative judges. But Pence’s stated reason for making the trip could not entirely tamp down speculation...

    The National Review ^ | August 21, 2019 | John McCormack
    There’s her backtracking on busing and her waffling on Medicare for All, not to mention her prosecutorial scandals. A new national CNN poll of the 2020 Democratic primary has some pretty brutal numbers for Kamala Harris. When CNN last polled the presidential race shortly after the first Democratic debate in June, Harris was on Joe Biden’s heels, trailing just 17 percent to 22 percent. But according to the latest survey by CNN, conducted August 15 to 18, Biden has rebounded to 29 percent, while Harris has dropped all the way down to 5 percent, tied for fourth place with South...

    Biden’s online fundraising has tailed off, suggesting problems generating grassroots enthusiasm, a POLITICO review of millions of donations shows. Joe Biden raised $4.6 million online on his first day in the 2020 presidential race, surprising doubters who thought the former vice president couldn’t run a modern campaign. But since then Biden’s online fundraising has tumbled — looking more like flash-in-the-pan opponent Beto O’Rourke than top-tier rivals like Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren. More than 60 percent of the $13.2 million Biden has raised online came in the first week of his campaign, which launched in late April, according to a...

    DES MOINES, Iowa — As Democratic presidential candidates descended on the Iowa State Fair, a plane buzzed overhead, an ominous warning fluttering behind it on a banner: “Focus on Rural America.” Democrats hoping to win the White House in 2020 recognize how critical that advice is after 2016, when Hillary Clinton turned in strong performances in many cities and suburbs but lost rural voters 2-to-1, falling short to President Donald Trump by slim margins in Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Democrats clawed back some gains in rural counties in the 2018 midterm elections, and they want to build on that...

    DES MOINES — A Democratic presidential field that has struggled to precisely define its general election indictment of Donald Trump appears finally to have found it. In the wake of mass shootings in Ohio and Texas — the latter of which was tied to a suspect whose anti-immigrant sentiments led to the killing of 22 people — candidates are road-testing a withering argument that draws a direct line between gun violence and the president’s racist rhetoric. “We are living with a toxic brew of two different things, each of which is claiming lives and each of which represents a national...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.) strong performance in this week’s Democratic presidential debates invigorated supporters who see her as slowly but surely making the case that she’s the best Democrat to take on President Trump. Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) were widely seen as the biggest winners of the two debates, along with Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who tangled with former Vice President Joe Biden in the week’s second debate. Sanders and Warren were the stars on the first night, and they avoided battling one another while presenting a united front against centrists arguing against the progressive proposals.

    Joe Biden survived the second round of Democratic presidential debates, but it became more apparent that over half the 22-person field is irrelevant and should get out, the sooner the better. The former vice president was repeatedly under attack on health care, criminal justice, immigration and abortion. He stumbled sometimes, but overall was sharper than his mediocre performance in the first debate a month ago. This won't assuage fears of mainstream Democrats that the 76-year-old Biden may not be up to the challenge of a protracted primary fight and bitter battle against Donald Trump. Still he was sufficiently engaged to...
