    Four years ago, Democrats were gearing up for a pre-determined outcome, the anointing of Hillary Clinton as the partyís presidential candidate. Convinced they were ďon the right side of history,Ē Democrats believed Hillary was destined to succeed Barack Obama, Americaís first black president, by becoming our first female president. The only real opposition to Mrs. Clintonís nomination came from Bernie Sanders, the socialist senator from Vermont who had never previously identified as a Democrat. The weakness of Hillaryís candidacy was exposed in the 2016 primary campaign, when Bernie and his wild-eyed supporters very nearly derailed her nomination, being foiled by...

    ATLANTA (AP) ó Vice President Mike Penceís visit Thursday to Atlanta included a stop at the Immigration and Customs Enforcementís field office and a conversation about the ďbroader mission of border security.Ē He also blasted Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms over her decision last year to bar the city jail from holding federal immigration detainees and thanked the men and women who work for ICE. Pence highlighted some of the ICE arrests made in the area, including one Wednesday night in Riverdale, Georgia, news outlets reported. ďAtlanta and Georgia are safer today because of the outstanding work of the men and...
  • 2020 Democrats heed AOC call to 'pack' the Supreme Court and force America to the left

    Washington Examiner ^ | 3/20/19 | Jerry Dunleavy
    When Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proclaimed that Democrats should "pack the Supreme Court of the United States of America," she was floating a fringe fantasy of increasing the number of justices from nine to 15 as a way of kick-starting a left-wing transformation of America. Now, the idea has gone mainstream. No longer the little-known primary candidate she was when she was speaking on Oct. 1 last year, Ocasio-Cortez, 29, is in the House of Representatives and her massive social media profile has propelled her to international fame. AOC, as she is almost universally known, is one of the most prominent faces...

    What kind of weird Republicans does Mika Brzezinski know? On today's Morning Joe, Brzezinski claimed that after 'Mayor Pete' Buttigieg appeared on yesterday's show, "I was surprised by the number of Republicans who reached out to me, saying, I'm going to support him. Because I'm looking for someone." Really? What kind of Republican is "looking for someone" like Buttigieg, who has these straight-down-the-line liberal positions on the issues?

  • Here's How Republicans Plan to Keep SCOTUS at Nine Seats

    We've recently reported on the Democrats' intentions of trying to expand the Supreme Court in hopes of getting revenge on Mitch McConnell. The Senate Majority Leader blocked President Obama nominee Merrick Garland, who he intended to replace the late Antonin Scalia. McConnell kept the seat open for President Trump to appoint a more conservative individual. And then another after that. With the Court now clearly skewed to the right, progressives have begun to seriously consider upending the norm. "Given the Merrick Garland situation, the question of legitimacy is one that I think we should actually talk about," Holder said earlier this...

    Thereís a reason why President Trump is becoming more popular in important Midwestern battleground states like Pennsylvania: Voters donít want to lose the ongoing economic renaissance that is transforming their lives. According to a recent opinion survey from The Wall Street Journal, the president ďcumulatively leads a generic Democratic opponent, 46 percent to 40 percent,Ē in Pennsylvania, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin. The surveyís findings are not surprising, and itís no small coincidence that those states are all thriving under the presidentís pro-growth economic policies.

    Vice President Mike Pence is making a trip to South Carolina to help kickoff U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham's bid for a fourth term. Graham's campaign says Pence will be with Graham at events in Myrtle Beach and Greenville on March 30. In a release, Graham praised Pence as "a strong ally and close friend." The 63-year-old senator has often fielded challenges from the right in his previous re-election campaigns, subject to criticism that he's been too willing to work with Democrats to accurately represent conservative South Carolinians.

    I don't know which is worse, the intolerant left's condemnation of former Vice President Joe Biden for saying Vice President Mike Pence is a "decent guy," or Biden's shameless groveling and apology. Biden committed his unforgivable infraction during a speech in Omaha, in which he casually alluded to Pence's speech at the Munich Security Conference in early February. He said, "The fact of the matter is it was followed on by a guy who's a decent guy, our vice president, who stood before this group of allies and leaders and said, 'I'm here on behalf of President Trump,' and there...

    Several Democratic donors were among those charged Tuesday in a federal crackdown on a nationwide fraudulent college admissions conspiracy. Most of the press reaction Tuesday centered on Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, two prominent Hollywood stars charged in the sting. Huffman, when not acting, is a generous donor to Democratic candidates. Huffman has donated thousands of dollars since 2016 to Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.), according to the Federal Election Commission's site. Prior to that, she donated frequently to President Barack Obama's election efforts. She is far from the only Democratic donor on the list, some of whom have also...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden will run for president in 2020, a senior Democratic lawmaker told The Hill on Tuesday, a move that will shake up the crowded Democratic primary field and make him the clear front-runner for his partyís nomination against President Trump. ďIím giving it a shot,Ē Biden said matter-of-factly during a phone call with a House Democratic lawmaker within the past week ó a conversation the congressman recounted to The Hill and interpreted as a sure sign that Biden will run in 2020.

    Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, complete with lei, took the stage at SXSW in Austin to do her first town hall as a presidential candidate Sunday night on CNN. The 37-year-old Iraq War veteran is running for president and would be the youngest, first woman, and first Hindu president in our nationís history. Many pundits have placed Gabbard in the center or even right of the Democratic Party. If so, the center or right of the Democratic Party is pretty leftist. Her first question was about American intervention in the rest of the world, and how she could be against American...

    South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg lambasted Mike Pence -- a man he used to work directly with during Pence's time as governor of Indiana -- calling the vice president a "cheerleader for the porn star presidency" on Sunday at CNN's town hall. Buttigieg went on to question Pence's faith, asking rhetorically whether Pence stopped "believing in scripture when he started believing Donald Trump." "How would he allow himself to become the cheerleader for the porn star presidency? Is it that he stopped believing in scripture when he started believing Donald Trump?" Buttigieg said. "I don't know. I don't know."

    Itís hard to believe that the Democratic Party has managed to shred itself so quickly after so many years of unwavering support from media and culture outlets. The Clintons - perhaps the shadiest political dynasty of our modern age - enjoyed nearly absolute cover when it came to news of their misdeeds; news that should have made anyone with a shred of intellectual honesty even just slightly curious. Look at what Bill Clinton has survived even in the era of #MeToo. Even if you donít believe the rape charges against him, the Lewinsky fiasco and the Clintonís ensuing, merciless take-down...

Readler, who served until September as assistant attorney general for the civil division at the Department of Justice, filed a brief last year supporting a lawsuit filed by Texas and other states seeking to strike down the Affordable Care Act. ďAs Mr. Readler is the author of the Trump administrationís decision to side with Republican attorneys general suing to repeal our health care law, Senate...
