    One of America’s most far-left politicians will be coming to Minnesota later this week to campaign for Attorney General Keith Ellison. Self-proclaimed democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, an Independent who has twice ran for the Democratic presidential nomination, will make campaign stops in Duluth, Rochester, and Minneapolis with Ellison on Thursday and Friday. “I’m proud to support Keith Ellison’s grassroots campaign for reelection. As the people’s lawyer in Minnesota, he fights every day for the working class,” Sanders said. Known for his criticisms of “millionaires and billionaires,” it was revealed in 2019 that Sanders himself became a millionaire after his...

    Vermont Republicans will be taking the “Let’s Go, Brandon” chant to a literal level by hosting a rally in the city of Brandon, Vermont. Brandon, Vermont is the hometown of the state’s recently elected GOP Chair Paul Dame; the rally will be held on Saturday, November 13, and will largely serve as a celebration of the latest Republican victories and a repudiation of the Joe Biden presidency. “This Saturday we are hosting a ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ Rally in Central Park in Brandon,” he continued. “We are having hats, T-shirts and bumper stickers designed and printed as locally as possible as...
  • Two Rural States With GOP Governors And Very Different COVID-19 Results

    One of the things happening in South Dakota is an infection rate that's among the worst in the nation, at about 8,000 cases per 100,000 people. In Vermont, another small, rural state with a Republican governor, Gov. Phil Scott has embraced safety measures, and the differences are pretty stark. Like South Dakota, Vermont has fewer than 1 million residents, most of whom don't live in cities. It has about 500 cases per 100,000 people. That's the lowest rate in the nation.

    See the link. I’m speaking to you today because I’ve seen people like this before. I’ve seen movements like this before. I’ve seen ideas like this before and I’m here to tell you, we cannot let them take over our country,” Álvarez asserted, referring both to Democrat Party presidential nominee Joe Biden and to the socialist faction of the party that largely supported rival Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). “I know all about the past — I’ll never forget my own. My family has fled totalitarianism and communism. And more than once. First, my dad from Spain, then from Cuba,” Álvarez...
  • Hillary Clinton Robbed Bernie Sanders Of The Democratic Nomination, According to Donna Brazile

    Newsweek ^ | November 2, 2017 | Greg Price
    Hillary Clinton’s campaign took over the Democratic National Committee's funding and day-to-day operations early in the primary season and may have used that power to undermine her rival Senator Bernie Sanders, according to the party's one-time interim chairwoman. The DNC official, Donna Brazile, now a political analyst, wrote in Politico Magazine on Thursday that she discovered an August 2015 agreement between the national committee and Clinton’s campaign and fundraising arm that gave Clinton “control (of) the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised” in exchange for taking care of the massive debt leftover from President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign....

    MSNBC’s Joy Reid said Tuesday on her network’s New Hampshire primary coverage that to defeat President Donald Trump, the 2020 Democratic nominee will have to “fight like a Republican.” Reid pointed to former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg because “he is a Republican, or used to be, anyway.” Reid said, “He still sounds like a Republican to a lot of people. So it’s a weird coalition.... (snip) (Reid) continued, “I know Republicans who — they don’t mind the fiscal policies of Trump. They like that, but they also want to sleep at night.

  • Bernie Sanders defends Tulsi Gabbard: ‘Outrageous’ to suggest she is a foreign asset

    Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders on Monday defended his fellow 2020 hopeful Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii against the claim that she is a “Russian asset,” saying the suggestion is “outrageous.” “Tulsi Gabbard has put her life on the line to defend this country,” the Vermont independent tweeted. “People can disagree on issues, but it is outrageous for anyone to suggest that Tulsi is a foreign asset.” Sanders does not name Hillary Clinton in the tweet, but his comments appear to be aimed at the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, whose claim last week on a podcast with former Obama...

    The East Oregonian ^ | October 17, 2019 | Carl Golden
    It began with 25 candidates. It’s been reduced by half, yet concern persists among Democrats that the party should look beyond the still standing contenders and seek an individual capable of party unification and persuade him or her to enter the race. It is an acknowledgement that each of the current candidates is burdened by baggage — ideological or personal — but seem determined to take the contest through a string of expensive, exhausting and bitter primaries. Former Vice President Joe Biden, whose lead has shrunk to single digits or vanished altogether, has been hurt by periodic mental lapses and...
  • Bannon: Democrats May Need To Recruit Bloomberg, Michelle Obama, Or Hillary To Beat Trump In 2020

    Former Trump campaign manager Steve Bannon told FNC's Maria Bartiromo in an interview on "Sunday Morning Futures" that he doesn't think any of the declared Democratic candidates have the ability to beat President Trump in the 2020 election. Bannon suggests that Democrats may have to recruit Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, or Michael Bloomberg to stop Trump from being re-elected. STEVE BANNON: I said this last week, Maria, I don't see anybody on that stage right now that can take President Trump one on one. I pride myself, he's called me his star pupil, his top pupil, I've been studying this...
  • Sherrod Brown, Amy Klobuchar score high on electability; Elizabeth Warren, not so much

    Now that the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination has officially started, one of the big issues that will likely come up is which candidate is the most electable. One way to find that out is to see how the different possible candidates have done in the past. Of course, it's difficult to compare candidates when they run for different offices in different years. There are, however, six potential 2020 Democratic contenders ran who ran for the US Senate in 2018. The big takeaway from those results: Sens. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Sherrod Brown of Ohio are above-average candidates...

    Anyone wondering why religious people still support Donald Trump, despite his flaws, need only watch a recording of the Democrats’ fanatical LGBTQ town hall last week. From Elizabeth Warren mocking religious males as incapable of finding a wife to Beto O’Rourke’s promise to strip tax benefits from religious institutions, or Cory Booker’s assertion that Catholics use religion to justify discrimination, you see the ugly face of militant secularism and coercion. It is frightening that every one of the nine Democratic candidates who took part in the CNN event has signed up to extreme policies that attack religious liberty and radically...

    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...

    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...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 7, 2019 | Eddie Scarry
    Frustrated liberals have been asking for the last four years what it’s going to take for President Trump’s supporters to abandon him. Because, like, don’t they know he’s about to be impeached!? New York Times columnist David Brooks attempted to answer the question last week by imagining a conversation with someone he simply referred to as “Flyover Man,” because apparently he didn’t know a single real Trump supporter. It never seems to occur to liberals that perhaps the real problem isn’t that a lot of people continue supporting the president even though he can be strange, vulgar, and sometimes even...

    The Post-Standard ^ | September 27, 2019 | The Washington Post
    For the first time, two Republican governors have publicly supported the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump, a new development in an intensifying political fracas that has so far been largely partisan. Vermont Gov. Phil Scott and Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, both outspoken critics of Trump, said Thursday that they favored the investigation, but Scott added that he would wait for more information before calling for further action against the president. In a statement to The Washington Post, Scott called the inquiry "appropriate" and said it is a key part of Congress's duty as a co-equal branch of government. "I...

    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...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., ripped into President Trump during Wednesday's episode of "The View" and claimed that he was probably the "most dangerous" president in the history of the United States. His comments came after host Joy Behar asked him about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., seemingly preferring a moderate to challenge Trump in 2020. "I love Nancy but she and I disagree on this issue," Sanders said. "I think the way you beat Donald Trump — and I must say that in my view, Donald Trump is the most dangerous president probably in the history of this country." "We...

    With the Democratic National Committee (DNC) struggling to raise money, Chairman Tom Perez is planning to hold multiple fundraisers in Mexico City this September. The three fundraisers scheduled for the 28th, according to Bloomberg, will range from a student-centric event with a $25 minimum entry fee to a dinner at which tickets could go as high as $15,000. Under Perez’s leadership, the DNC has lagged far behind its Republican National Committee (RNC) counterpart in raising funds.

    Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden is facing more campaign issues this week; with analysts saying his fundraising efforts have “tumbled” since a series of gaffes on the campaign trail. “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,” reports Politico. “More than 60 percent of the $13.2 million Biden has raised online came in the first week...
