    US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Monday her Democratic Party must avoid the "menace" of liberal policies pushed by rising political stars if it wants to beat President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. "When we won this election, it wasn't in districts like mine or Alexandria's," Pelosi said in reference to the November midterms in which the Democrats gained control of the House of Representatives. "Those are districts that are solidly Democratic -- this glass of whatever would win with a D next to its name in those districts," said the Speaker after picking up a glass off a...

    “Overwhelming” is the only word which properly describes the growing list of 2020 Presidential candidates vying to unseat Donald Trump. To date, there are the officially declared, the yet to declare, and a handful of teetering outliers. The outliers aren’t in the running per se, but in the event no Democrat is able to garner the party nomination, one of them might be persuaded to step up to the podium. The Declared Candidates:Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Robert O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, Corey Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Andrew Yang, Julian Castro, Kirsten Gillibrand, Jay Inslee, Tulsi Gabbard, John Hickenlooper, John Delaney,...
  • Elizabeth Warren tells Stop & Shop shoppers, ’Do not cross the picket line’

    U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat running for president in 2020, delivered donuts and coffee to picketing Stop & Shop workers in Somerville on Friday, and urged shoppers to take their business elsewhere. “Do not cross the picket line,” Warren said. “Understand people on the picket line are not just fighting for their families. They’re fighting for all our families. They’re fighting for basic fairness and equality in this country.” On Thursday, the unions representing 31,000 Stop & Shop workers across Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut voted to go on strike. Their contract expired in February, and they have...
  • Warren releases tax returns showing million-dollar income, moments after pitching wealth tax

    Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren released her 2018 tax returns on Wednesday, showing she and her husband earned nearly $1 million last year. The Democrat from Massachusetts used the release to once again highlight a bill she’s pushing that would mandate that the Internal Revenue Service publicly release the tax returns of the president, vice president, presidential candidates and federal officeholders. “I’ve put out eleven years of my tax returns because no one should ever have to guess who their elected officials are working for. Doing this should be law,” Warren said in a statement, in a likely jab at...

    For Cleveland suburbs, Shaker and Parma have little in common other than that, until recently, Democratic presidential candidates could count on their votes. But in 2016, Parma voted for Donald Trump, and Shaker didn’t. To Clevelanders, this split followed a certain logic. Shaker and Parma have long been of different tribes, though the same political party.

    Washington Compost ^ | April 8, 2019 | Joshua Spivak
    As the presidential campaign heats up, so too has the movement to abolish or otherwise neutralize the electoral college. Some advocates argue that the electoral college was originally established to help less-populated states retain power, or to have every part of the country heard from in electing a chief executive. Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) claims the system was designed to help the slave states. But these are modern interpretations of what really happened at the Constitutional Convention of 1787. The electoral college was designed with two purposes: to separate the branches of government in an attempt to avoid “cabals” and...

    The Daily Signal ^ | April 08, 2019 | Justin Bogie
    Democrats are trying to put the last nail in the coffin of the Budget Control Act of 2011, one of the few remaining semblances of fiscal restraint left in Washington. This week, the House likely will vote on a plan to raise the law’s discretionary spending caps by at least $357 billion for 2020-2021. As has far too often become the case in Congress, none of the proposed new funding will be paid for with cuts to other programs. The country is over $22 trillion in debt. It is past time for Congress to get serious about spending reforms and...

    Andrew Yang, a businessman who is running for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president, said Sunday on ABC's "This Week" that his proposal to provide every American with a $1,000 guaranteed monthly income would help "solve the problems that got Donald Trump elected in 2016." "To me the main driver of his victory was that we automated away 4 million manufacturing jobs in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, the swing states he needed to win," Yang said.

    It takes a lot of personal and political courage for a black person to stand up against any issue the far Left Democratic Party supports when it comes to its practice of identity politics, but one former ACLU leader has done just that. During an interview on Fox News‘ Friday, former ACLU national board member Michael Meyers called 2020 Democrats’ push for “reparations” for blacks a total scam that itself is built on racism. “It’s more of that blame whitey movement mania, madness. And it’s sheer racial rhetoric, and that’s what you get at the Al Sharpton so-called ‘house of...

    Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris says she would sign legislation 'when' she becomes president authorizing a study on financial compensation and a national apology for slavery. Harris told civil rights activist Al Sharpton on Friday: 'When I am elected president, I will sign that bill.' She was the first in a long line-up of 2020 Democrats to address the National Action Network conference's morning session. 'Justice means recognizing domestic terrorism, including white nationalistic extremism, from Pittsburgh to Charlottesville to Orlando as a threat to the country we love and should be considered a national security priority,' she said, as she...

    The nine Democrats selected by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to serve on the Select Committee on the Climate Crisis received a combined $198,000 from fossil fuel industry political action committees in the 2018 election cycle. The majority of the donations went to Rep. Ben Ray Lujan (D-N.M.), who raised $117,000 from PACs connected to oil, gas, mining and electric utility corporations. Those donations constituted 6 percent of all contributions raised by Lujan. The rest of the appointees received scant funds from fossil fuel PACs. The data comes from the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonprofit that classifies campaign donations...

    Virginia Democratic Lieutenant Gov. Justin Fairfax’s office issued a statement Sunday again denying allegations of sexual assault and saying Fairfax took two polygraph exams in an effort to show he is telling the truth. The statement from Fairfax came as televised interviews of two women, Vanessa Tyson and Meredith Watson, are set to air over the coming days. “From the moment that Dr. Vanessa Tyson and then Ms. Meredith Watson first made accusations that Lt. Governor Fairfax had committed sexual assault decades ago, Lt. Governor Fairfax has been steadfast in saying that the allegations are extraordinarily serious, deserve to be...

    Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy is asking President Donald Trump to grant a presidential permit to extend the Alaska Railroad into Canada, supporting a Canadian company seeking to blaze a new path for Asian-bound products. Linking the Alaska and North American rail systems, an idea more than a century old, would cut at least two days travel time for Canadian and Lower 48 cargo headed to the Far East because of shorter sea routes, supporters say. “To me it was a no-brainer,” said Sean McCoshen, chief executive of Alberta to Alaska Railway Development Corp., speaking to the Senate Transportation Committee late...
  • Chicago Dilutes Right to Vote by Designating Illegal Alien ID Card as a Registration Document

    Center for Immigration Studies ^ | March 2, 2019 | Dan Cadman
    Chicago's new identification card, created with illegal aliens in mind, is being deemed acceptable by the State of Illinois for voter registration purposes. First, let me say without a shadow of a doubt that there is no instant "trigger" when an alien registers to vote, and the implication that an alien will therefore instantly be deported is risible. Even more risible is the assertion that checking a box attesting to citizenship will meaningfully deter illegal voting by aliens. That defies human nature. Since when has any fraudster been held back by the notion that he or she must lie on...

    An effort led by Democrats to scrap or bypass the Electoral College and shift presidential elections to contests decided by the national popular vote has almost no chance of succeeding, guaranteeing Democrats will again have to defeat Trump in the Electoral College they lost in 2016 while winning more votes nationally. The Electoral College places the power to elect presidents in the hands of individual states and is enshrined in the Constitution.
