    Hillary Clinton is slated to appear at a virtual fundraiser on Zoom for Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, later this month. The "virtual conversation" with Clinton and Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez will be held on May 19, according to an invitation obtained by Politico. Tickets for the hour-long event are available for $50,000, $41,100, $15,600, $5,600 and a “limited” number for $2,800. Hosts have to pay $100,000. Money from the event will go toward the Biden Victory Fund. Last month, Biden's campaign and the Democratic National Committee finalized a joint fundraising agreement that granted the former...
  • Silicon Valley: Oracle Employees Protest Chairman Larry Ellison’s Fundraiser For Trump

    Last week Oracle co-founder and Chairman Larry Ellison held a fundraiser for President Trump’s re-election campaign at his Rancho Mirage estate near Palm Springs, Calif. At the time the fundraiser was announced, there was silence from The Resistance, which is unusual given the reality of today’s political environment – public figures who support Trump must be shamed and shunned. It turns out about 300 employees of the American multinational computer technology corporation protested Ellison’s fundraiser but they did so the day after the event which seems like an odd way of going about it. Oracle employs about 136,000 people,...

    The California winemakers who hosted a dinner at a “wine cave” for Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg are defending the fundraising event. Buttigieg’s political rivals used the recent fundraiser to criticize the South Bend, Indiana, mayor for soliciting campaign contributions from wealthy donors at Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate. Craig and Kathryn Hall, who own the Hall Rutherford winery in Napa Valley, said Friday that they took issue with how their wine cave has been portrayed in the media. “It seems someone’s intentionally trying to create a different image than the reality. And that’s unfortunate,” Craig Hall said. A dispute over...

    Here are the photos from inside Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s lavish, closed-door Napa Valley fundraiser that sparked a fierce back-and-forth with Sen. Elizabeth Warren during Thursday’s Democratic debate. The images, tweeted by Recode reporter Teddy Schleifer on Monday, show donors dining with the South Bend, Indiana, mayor in the Hall Rutherford wine caves, beneath a chandelier decked in 1,500 Swarovski crystals. The wine caves also feature an onyx banquet table to reflect the chandelier’s lights and bottles of Cabernet Sauvignon that sell for as much as $900 a pop.

    A Democratic state senator from Illinois came under fire over the weekend after pictures were posted online showing his supporters at a fundraising event performing a mock assassination of a faux President Trump. “The tolerant left,” wrote a Facebook user in response to the incident. Photos posted by a woman who witnessed the mock assassination on Friday night show supporters of Sen. Martin Sandoval, who represents Illinois’ 11th District — which includes parts of Chicago — acting out in front of guests, according to WCIA. One of them can be seen pointing a fake machine gun at a man wearing...

    A fundraiser for Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign said he is no longer supporting the former vice president's White House bid — and predicted that others may follow suit. Tom McInerney, a San Francisco-based attorney who was a lead bundler for former President Barack Obama, told CNBC he informed Biden's team of his decision on June 20. The news of his break comes one day after Biden delivered an uneven debate performance that provoked new doubts about his candidacy and turned a spotlight back on his controversial statements and past policy positions on civil rights and abortion.

    After Big Ben clocked himself at London’s finish, his day only got worse. Dressed as Big Ben, London marathoner Lukas Bates hoped to break a record for running as the famed clock. But he found time was not on his side at the finish. His costume was too large to fit under the scaffolding of the finis, and bending down to try to fit under didn’t really help, either. His 3:54:21 finish was not enough to beat the standing record for running dressed as a landmark—3:34:34—and videos of him trying to get his costume across the line went viral. And...

    Former President Barack Obama (D) appeared at a town hall event in Berlin on behalf of the Obama Foundation. One of the issues that came up with the progressive wing of the Democratic Party and whether or not they're doing more harm than good, The Hill reported."One of the things I do worry about sometimes among progressives in the United States —maybe it’s true here as well — is a certain kind of rigidity where we say, 'Uh, I’m sorry, this is how it’s going to be,' and then we start sometimes creating what’s called a 'circular firing squad,' where you...

    The rising presidential hopeful was joined by rivals Kamala Harris and Cory Booker in visiting Los Angeles in late March, appearing at everything from an HRC fundraiser and NAACP Image Awards to showbiz offices and backyard garden parties. A lot of people in Hollywood spent last week learning to pronounce Pete Buttigieg’s last name. The 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Ind. — and surging Democratic presidential candidate — was in town over the March 29 weekend to make the rounds with potential supporters and contributors, starting with a stop at the Beverly Hills offices of Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

    Reporters used to report the news. Reporters used to stand up for free speech. All that is gone in the Progressive Era of news as the likes of CNN’s Oliver Darcy use their reporting to censor the news and free speech by campaigning to get their competitors and ideological opponents deplatformed or driven off the air by advertiser boycotts. Now comes the Washington Post’s tech policy reporter Tony Romm who attempted to get the wildly popular border wall fundraiser taken down by GoFundMe

    As she’s campaigned in the Third Congressional District, Lori Trahan has repeatedly left open this question if elected: Would she back Nancy Pelosi for minority leader or speaker of the House? Whether she’ll campaign with her, however, is a different answer. Trahan is welcoming Pelosi, the current House minority leader, to a fund-raiser Tuesday in Concord, using the California Democrat’s name and standing to help generate cash in the closing weeks of her race against GOP nominee Rick Green. In a statement, Trahan said she was grateful Pelosi is “once again doing everything she can to get Democrats elected in...

    Like many decent people from both parties, I have been disgusted by the unsubstantiated 36 year old smears aimed at Brett Kavanaugh. We live in a country where innocent until proven guilty is supposed to mean something; yet Brett Kavanaugh's reputation is being dragged through the mud while his family is facing non-stop death threats. This is a horrible way to treat a good man who has dedicated his life to public service. So many unethical people are giving unprovable 36 year old accusations the same weight as 6 FBI background checks, hundreds of hours of hearings and testimony under...

    Noticeably absent from [Bush’s] list is Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a Republican who is facing a surprisingly robust challenge from Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso. Cruz once worked for the former commander in chief, both on Bush’s presidential campaign and then in his administration. The senator also met his wife, Heidi, while working for Bush’s campaign, leading him to say that he “will always be grateful” to the former president…

The corporation gave $25,000 to the California Republican Party this week, according to a public filing on the Secretary of State’s website. The filing was spotted by Washington, D.C.-based journalist Gabe Schneider, who shared it on Twitter Wednesday afternoon.

    Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who holds progressive stances on income inequality, charged as much as $2,700 for tickets at a fundraising event in San Francisco on Tuesday. The 28-year-old held two events in San Francisco’s Mission District, one at 7 p.m. that sold tickets between $500 and $2,700 and another at 7:30 pm. The second event was sold out and moved to a larger venue to accommodate for 400 to 500 people, according to SFGate.

    Donald Trump Jr. has canceled a fundraiser he was scheduled to hold for Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush after multiple members of the Bush family levied harsh criticism at President Donald Trump’s administration for its enforcement of immigration laws. The barrage began earlier this week when former First Lady Laura Bush (the wife of former president and Texas governor George W. Bush and George P. Bush’s aunt) wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post in which she called Trump’s handling of illegal immigration “immoral,” a narrative pushed by national Democrats and, in Texas, retiring Texas House Speaker Joe Straus....
