    Sunday, October 23, 2016 Will Hillary Accept Defeat? Posted by Daniel Greenfield The headlines are in. Trump is the “anti-Democratic” candidate because he refuses to rule out challenging the results of an election that has yet to take place. Such a course of action is “beyond the pale”. It’s a threat to democracy. And it is utterly and thoroughly unacceptable. Except when Democrats do it. It was the day after the election. While the Democratic Party faithful waited in the rain in Nashville, William Daley strode out and announced, “Our campaign continues”. Al Gore had called George W. Bush to...

  • Dayton: Will concede to GOP to end Minn. shutdown (but no 15% staff reductions either)

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton offered Thursday to end a two-week government shutdown by accepting a Republican proposal to bring more money into Minnesota's budget. Dayton announced in Minneapolis that he will agree to an offer legislative Republicans made just before the shutdown started, if they agree to drop a list of policy changes and a plan to reduce the state workforce by 15 percent. GOP leaders said they were reviewing the offer and had no immediate comment. The offer would raise $1.4 billion, half by delaying state aid checks to schools districts and the other half by...
  • Emmer to concede election to Dayton

    It's over. Republican Tom Emmer will concede the 2010 Minnesota governor's race this morning to Democrat Mark Dayton, a Republican source with direct knowledge confirmed to the Pioneer Press. Emmer's 10:30 a.m. concession means he will not contest the election in court — thus averting a scenario that could have kept Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty in office past the scheduled Jan. 3 swearing-in of the next governor, the source said. Emmer's announcement will take place at his Delano home, multiple sources said. Emmer couldn't be immediately reached for comment.

    In the two days since a three judge state panel handed Norm Coleman a major setback in his election contest against entertainer Al Franken (D) the former Minnesota senator has made clear that he has no plans to declare defeat anytime soon. "Well, clearly it wasn't over," Coleman said during a radio interview yesterday, adding: "Every vote has to now be counted, and as I repeat again and again, counted with a uniform standard." Coleman's lead lawyer, Ben Ginsberg, has dismissed the court's ruling on Tuesday as an "April Fool's day" decision. The ruling "gives us no choice but to...

    Senior advisers to Senator Hillary Clinton have prepared the ground for her to abandon her presidential ambitions within days rather than disputing the Democratic nomination all the way to the party convention in August. Senator Barack Obama is expected to be able to declare himself the party's candidate against Senator John McCain as early as tomorrow, when South Dakota and Montana become the final states to hold their primaries. Howard Dean, the Democratic National Committee chairman, said the nomination would be decided this week: "We don't want to go to the convention, have a big fight at the convention, and...
  • Iraq critics concede military progress

    WASHINGTON - Even some critics of President Bush's Iraq war policies are conceding there is evidence of recent improvements from a military standpoint. But Bush supporters and critics alike agree that these have not been matched by any noticeable progress on the political front. Despite U.S. pressure, Iraq's parliament went on vacation for a month after failing to pass either legislation to share the nation's oil wealth or to reconcile differences among the factions. And nearly all Sunni representatives in the government have quit, undermining the legitimacy of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, a Shiite. Still, there have been signs of...

    ROME - Center-left challenger Romano Prodi won the Italian parliamentary election, official results showed Tuesday, but Premier Silvio Berlusconi refused to concede until all checks are completed. "Nobody now can say they have won," Berlusconi said. The prime minister had called for a recount in the lower Chamber of Deputies, where final results gave Prodi's coalition a razor-thin margin. Earlier, Prodi told a news conference his government would have "constructive relations" with the United States and predicted that financial markets would "welcome with favor" his leadership. He said he was not concerned about Berlusconi's recount call and conceded his margin...

    ( Hamas spokesman Mahmoud Zahar issued a demand Sunday evening that Israel remove the stripes from its flag. "Israel must remove the two blue stripes from its national flag", Zahar said. "The stripes are symbols of occupation – they signify Israel's borders, stretching from the River Euphrates to the River Nile." The Hamas official's comments followed Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz's assessment at the weekly Cabinet meeting that the newly elected terror group was "acting responsibly so far." Zahar also told CNN's Late Edition that the world should not be asking Hamas to recognize Israel, but rather demanding that the Jewish...

    What's the difference between Christine Gregoire and me? I lost one count for governor. Gregoire has now lost two. Yes, it was close -- a photo finish. But it was not, as she is telling people, a tie. Dino Rossi won it fairly, he won it squarely and he won it twice. Yet Gregoire is calling for a third count done by hand because she wants "accuracy." Actually, she wants 43 votes. And a hand count is easier to get there, because hand counts are less accurate than machines. Those who understand the process of running an election, including our...

    He wasn't even man enough to say it himself. When the John Kerry campaign decided to put ambition over duty, they sent the kid out to make the statement. "We've waited four years for this victory, we can wait one more night." And then the pretty boy walked off. While somewhere off sight unseen the man who would be king cowered and hid. A cleverly concocted phrase, a couple of claptrap sentences, the Breck boy on stage, and democracy was left cooling its heels. Rather, it was kicked right in the crotch. By Teresa's husband and some cracker shyster. The...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Expectations dimmed Saturday that California would begin the new fiscal year with an approved budget for the first time in four years. Participants in a 90-minute closed-door meeting between Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and legislative leaders said their negotiations went well, but added that it is unrealistic to hope a budget could be approved before the start of the new fiscal year Thursday. There appear to be too many unresolved issues to clear away and still leave time for printing the massive $103 billion spending plan, sharing the document with lawmakers and then voting on it, officials...
