    Former President Barack Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett on Tuesday urged whichever 2020 Democratic presidential candidate emerges as the leader after the conclusion of Super Tuesday to “break with conventional wisdom and announce a running mate that’s a woman of color,” especially if it is Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), former Vice President Joe Biden or former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Jarrett explained on CBS’s “This Morning” that “these are not normal times” and argued having a woman of color “would send an important signal” heading into the next round of primaries. “I think that whoever emerges tonight, particularly...

    2020 Democrat Joe Biden stumbled over his words as he attempted to recite the Declaration of Independence ahead of Super Tuesday. “We hold these truths to be self-evident,” the former vice president said during a campaign event in Texas on Monday. "All men and women created by - you know, you know, the thing.” During the stop, he also accidentally referred to Super Tuesday as "Super Thursday" before correcting himself.

    Mean Little Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign is over, and how lucky we are to be rid of that nasty piece of work. Never forget that the failed mayor of South Bend, Indiana, launched his failed presidential bid with hate, bigotry, and lies. And then, after his hate, bigotry, and lies earned him enough attention from a media that thrive on such things, the Mean Little Mayor morphed into one of the biggest presidential phonies ever. But the hate came first… You see, if you want to win attention from the fake news media, spewing hate at Christians is an...

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — His aura suddenly shattered, a defiant Michael Bloomberg sent a pointed message Thursday to a political world grappling with his underwhelming presidential debate debut: He’s not going away. The New York ultra-billionaire lashed out at leading Democratic rival Bernie Sanders and President Donald Trump, addressing voters face to face in the Super Tuesday state of Utah. That was just hours after struggling to answer dangerous yet predictable questions about his record on race, gender and wealth during a nationally televised beatdown that rattled would-be supporters and thrilled critics in both parties.

Barr on Sunday to step down after he intervened last week to lower the Justice Department’s sentencing recommendation for President Trump’s longtime friend Roger J. Stone, Jr.,” The New York Times reported on Sunday—if you can call it reporting.Not once in the 800-word article did the Times address the overwhelming evidence that the thousand-plus signatories were politically motivated critics of President Donald Trump. In fact, to the contrary, the Times claimed “the former Justice Department lawyers” “came from across the political spectrum” to...

    President Trump accused former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg of trying to buy the presidency and claimed the billionaire was guilty of illegal campaign spending. "What Mini Mike is doing is nothing less than a large scale illegal campaign contribution," Trump tweeted Tuesday. "He is 'spreading' money all over the place, only to have recipients of his cash payments, many former opponents, happily joining or supporting his campaign. Isn’t that called a payoff?" "Mini is illegally buying the Democrat Nomination. They are taking it away from Bernie again. Mini Mike, Major Party Nominations are not for sale! Good luck...

    Rev. Al Sharpton's unsuccessful presidential campaign had nearly $1 million in debt at the end of 2019 ⁠— more than 15 years after his 2004 presidential bid. Sharpton's former campaign treasurer Andrew Rivera is responsible for paying off the $925,713.78 in debt. "I have asked Andrew Rivera, the finance chair of my 2004 campaign, to set up a meeting with the Federal Election Commission so that I can resolve any campaign debts related to Sharpton 2004,” Sharpton told the New York Post. “I am willing to work out a settlement for all claims with my own money to the degree...

    One big story after the first two Democratic primary elections is the fast fade of former Vice President Joe Biden, who came in fourth in Iowa and a dismal fifth in New Hampshire. But one other prominent candidate is quickly losing altitude as well: Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Last fall, Warren was more popular than Bernie Sanders and a solid second behind Biden. Her rallies drew thousands and her plans for everything forced competing candidates to plan up. But Warren landed third in Iowa and fourth in New Hampshire, a particularly lousy showing given that she’s from the neighboring state of...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) assured to MSNBC that her campaign is still viable following an abysmal performance in the New Hampshire Democratic primary on Tuesday. Warren came in at fourth place. While talking to MSNBC and later posting to her Twitter account, Warren said a "broke" college student told her she only had $6.00 left in her bank account and how she donated half to "keep you in this fight."Warren said, "I tell you, there are so many people who are in this fight for the right reasons. A young girl came up to me tonight and said, “I’m a...

    “Lying Dog-Faced Pony Soldier” – Sleepy Joe Speaking Truth to Power _________________ Well, well, well. Many have wondered where Sleepy Joe Biden originated the interesting “ lying dog-faced pony soldier” remark. Some speculated that he got it from an old John Wayne movie. In fact Biden has used the phrase in the past, and attributed it to a John Wayne movie. Well it turns out the words may have come from a 1952 Tyrone Power movie, “Pony Soldier”. Tyrone played a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Last night Tucker Carlson had Mark Steyn as a guest. Mark had...

    Liberal billionaire Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is whipping out ridiculous amounts of cash to beat President Donald Trump in November. Recent Federal Election Commission records revealed that the campaign for the billionaire owner of Bloomberg News had spent over a whopping $180 million just in the first month of his candidacy, CNBC reported Jan. 31. “Bloomberg spent more during that month than any of his individual Democratic rivals have raised in total during the cycle,” [emphasis added], CNBC said. Bloomberg had also personally contributed over $200 million to his own campaign.

    If you are four hands into a high stakes poker game and you still haven’t figured out who the mark is, it’s probably you. Poor Bernie behaves as if he doesn’t yet understand that he is the mark. The deck is stacked. The cards are marked. The remaining players at the table, especially that smiling dealer (the one with the press credentials, shuffling the cards) haven’t determined who the winner will be. But they have decided one thing, it ain’t gonna to be Bernie! They’ve tipped their hands. The New York Times Editorial Board can’t decide which woman should be...

It’s the same date as the next Democratic presidential debate, in Iowa. The rally, which will be the president’s third campaign event of the new year, will be held at the University of Wisconsin’s 12,700-seat Panther arena in Milwaukee.

    President Donald Trump’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 president’s campaign, tweeted a congratulatory message to 2020 presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) after Harris suspended her campaign. Gabbard’s rivalry with Harris was a mainstay on the campaign trail after the Hawaii Democrat eviscerated the senator’s record as a prosecutor at July’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 candidate’s...

    Less than a year into their terms, progressive Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are facing accusations that they mishandled campaign finances - and the outcomes could have big impacts on their political careers. Tlaib, Omar and Ocasio-Cortez are three out of four members of the so-called "Squad," a group of up-and-coming female members of Congress who have been outspoken about their beliefs as they appear to pull their party to the left. Here are the questions they're being asked about their campaign finances as the 2020 election looms. Rashida Tlaib Since August, an official congressional watchdog...
