  • Bernie is Now 50/50 to Win Nomination as Biden’s Chances Crater: Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight

    02/06/2020 9:54:00 PM PST · by Conserv · 11 replies
    Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) has roughly a 50/50 shot at winning the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination — more than double the probability of his nearest competitor — according to Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight. A forecast from FiveThirtyEight places Sanders’ odds at “1 in 2,” with former Vice President Joe Biden’s odds at “1 in 5,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) at “1 in 20,” and former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg at “1 in 30.” All other 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, including Mike Bloomberg, Andrew Yang, Tom Steyer, and Tulsi Gabbard, are placed at “1 in 100” odds. Sanders is also currently...
  • Democratic debate in jeopardy amid labor disputes as candidates express frustration over 'artificially narrowed' field

    Controversy continues to roil this week’s upcoming Democratic presidential primary debate in Los Angeles amid an ongoing labor dispute, anger over the tightening qualification standards and discontent with Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez. The debate, which was originally slated to be held at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), was moved to Loyola Marymount University after AFSCME Local 3299 — the union representing more than 25,000 University of California service and patient technical care workers — and the state school forced UCLA to inform the Democrats and its media partners to abandon plans to host the debate at...

    The mostly behind-the-scenes attempt between Election Day and Inauguration Day to prevent Donald Trump from taking office the first time will go public in 2020. As I reported last week, a cabal of Democrats and NeverTrump Republicans are plotting a post-election civil war of sorts to make sure Joe Biden assumes the presidency even if Donald Trump legitimately wins. “It’s insurrection,” President Trump said on Fox News last week when asked about the widely-circulated plan. “We’ll put them down very quickly if they do that.” SNIP But this is more than the far-fetched hallucinations of political outcasts. The mayhem they’ve...

    It didn’t take long for billionaire and failed presidential candidate Tom Steyer to resume peddling his climate change nonsense. This comes after he spent over $341 million financing his own campaign. His new schtick? Selling the American people that the only way to stop West Coast wildfires is electing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Insufferable CNN anchor John Berman first allowed Steyer to drone on about his coinage of the term “climate fires.” Berman then pivoted to actually questioning how natural disasters will affect the November election if they happened in “states that mattered.” Berman asked during the September 14...

    Former staffers of Tom Steyer's failed presidential campaign filed a lawsuit accusing the Democratic billionaire of violating their labor rights, state filings show. The July 27 lawsuit from field organizers Alexa Kern and Mary Sweeney was filed under the state's Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA), a 2004 law that permits employees to sue their employer on the state's behalf for wage and labor infractions. While its details remain unknown, 89 percent of PAGA claims allege wage violations such as "failure to pay for all hours worked," according to a February report issued by state advocacy groups. During his career as...

    Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden has recruited former Clinton and Obama administration official Carol Browner and billionaire activist Tom Steyer to advise his campaign on climate change. Steyer, once Biden’s rival for the Democrat nomination, opposes all of President Donald Trump’s successful efforts to make the United States energy independent and favors globalism, including the United Nation’s control over U.S. energy markets through the Paris Climate Accord.

    If you type "#HoustonLynching" in Twitter's search engine, hundreds and hundreds of tweets appear. Thousands more appear under the hashtags "#Lynchings" and "#Lynched." Social media activists supporting the Black Lives Matter movement have spread a terrifying story: Evil racists are hanging black men from trees across the country. In the wake of the George Floyd incident in Minnesota and three weeks of riots, America is in the grips of a purported epidemic of white supremacist violence that harkens back to the Jim Crow era with noose-wielding Klansman lurking on every corner. Except that it's all a big fat lie. Left-wing...

    Canadian pipeline operator TC Energy is moving forward with plans to build the controversial Keystone XL Pipeline, a project to move heavy crude oil from the tar sands region of Canada to Nebraska where it will then move on to refineries in Illinois and along the Gulf Coast. After years of legal battles, TC Energy confirmed Tuesday morning that the company plans to invest $8 billion on the crude oil pipeline project. The controversial pipeline project faced opposition and legal challenges from Native American groups, environmentalists and landowners. “We appreciate the ongoing backing of landowners, customers, Indigenous groups and numerous...

    The billionaire Democrat was once virtually everywhere. Now, he’s nowhere to be found.Not too long ago, Tom Steyer, the billionaire Democrat who flooded the airwaves with an incessant push to impeach President Trump, was virtually everywhere. Now, he’s hardly visible. As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread rapidly, some of the nation’s wealthiest individuals are evaluating ways to help those most in need. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who spent nearly $1 billion to self-fund his short presidential campaign, committed through his philanthropy to giving $40 million to a global response fund and was part of a $75...

    Townhall.com ^ | March 11, 2020 | Jacob Sullum
    Two and a half weeks after Bernie Sanders slammed Michael Bloomberg for trying to "buy this election," the former New York City mayor dropped out of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, having spent $570 million of his own money to win 61 delegates. Tom Steyer, the other billionaire in the race, did even worse, abandoning his campaign after spending more than $250 million and earning zero delegates. Those spectacular failures should give pause to the politicians and activists who argue that money poses a grave threat to democracy -- so grave that the Constitution must be amended to...

    There may be plenty of second chances in life, but there are very few when it comes to voting — a bitter pill to swallow for those Californians who voted for any of the presidential candidates who dropped out before Tuesday’s statewide election. The sudden exit from the race Sunday by Pete Buttigieg, former mayor of South Bend, Ind., sparked some brief interest on social media about the rules governing a possible revote. No doubt similar questions were raised by those who cast early absentee ballots for Tom Steyer, the billionaire climate change activist who left the race Saturday. The...

    With the results in from South Carolina, a strong case can be made that Tom Steyer has just concluded the worst campaign in the history of presidential politics. Steyer, the California-based founder of Farallon Capital and the co-founder of Onecalifornia Bank and Beneficial State Bank, became a household name – at least among those households with MSNBC – by being the single largest funder of efforts to impeach President Trump. After telling reporters in January 2019 that he would not seek the presidency, Steyer exercised his prerogative to change his mind and declared his candidacy in July. According to the...

    Billionaire Tom Steyer wasted over $252 million on his failed presidential campaign, according to federal election records. The campaign finance report filed on January 30, showed Steyer spent $252,841,942 on his campaign, according to Open Secrets. Millions more were likely spent as Steyer continued to advertise in Nevada and South Carolina before calling it quits on February 29. “Honestly, I can’t see a path where I can win the presidency,” Steyer said on Saturday night, sharing his decision to end his campaign. Steyer was a self-funding billionaire candidate, as 98 percent of his campaign money came from his own pocket....

    Tom Steyer, the California activist billionaire who has largely been a nonfactor in the Democratic primary campaign, dropped out of the race on Saturday night. Steyer made the announcement following a disappointing finish in the South Carolina Democratic primary Saturday night. With 56 percent of the vote in, Steyer had just 11.7 percent of the vote — despite spending millions of dollars on campaigning there.

    Steyer grabbed the mic, bent his knees and stuck out his behind to the rhythm of the 1999 hit, that taught a generation of how to 'drop it like it's hot.' . . . Kat Taylor, speaking to the crowd she stayed with the musical theme and started singing, holding up her smart phone and reading the lyrics, that mentioned 'reparations' and other policy proposals the candidate supports. Once it was Steyer's turn he talked about falling in love with the people of South Carolina - though joked he had only met the Democrats.
