    A Democratic presidential primary field that already embraces the Green New Deal and has floated ideas like reparations and guaranteed jobs could drift even further left thanks to a quirk in this year’s primary calendar. Unlike past elections, California will hold its primary early in the season – on March 3, 2020. That means the West Coast state, and its famously liberal voters, will hold extra influence this cycle. And while the 2020 candidates still have to connect with supporters in earliest-voting Iowa and New Hampshire – with their more moderate-leaning electorates – California’s combination of an early primary and...

    Research commissioned by The Atlantic Magazine shows that older white liberals may just be the most politically intolerant group in the country. The article by Amanda Ripley, Rekha Tenjarla and Angela Y. He, published Monday and titled “The Geography of Partisan Prejudice,” utilized polling and analytics firm PredictWise to “create a ranking of counties in the U.S. based on partisan prejudice.” While its findings showed “significant variations in Americans’ political ill will from place to place, regardless of party,” it also found that groups the authors expected to display partisan animosity, such as immigrants, paled in comparison to “the most...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez "is the leader — everybody knows it, everybody feels it. She's the leader of this mass movement." — Michael Moore Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is loud, perpetually outraged, and not particularly bright. In fact, saying she’s not particularly bright is kind of like saying Antarctica is not particularly hot. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez IS what the mainstream media THOUGHT Sarah Palin was when she first came on the scene except she’s liberal, dumb, and considerably less accomplished. Her first huge (albeit non-binding) policy initiative and the FAQ that goes along with the #Greennewdeal seems like the sort of drek a dimwitted high...

    Big banks could be about to get a high-profile enemy in a very powerful place. Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is a registered Democrat but identifies as a democratic socialist, is in line to be appointed to the House Financial Services Committee, according to a Politico report. The New York legislator has vowed to take on the industry that makes up the corporate backbone for much of her constituency. She said during her successful campaign in 2018, in which she refused corporate donors and upset entrenched incumbent Democrat Joe Crowley, that she was hoping for an assignment that would allow...

    At last, we’ve reached the conclusion of this scintillating drama: the National Zoo’s naked mole-rat colony has chosen its queen. In case you’ve been living under a rock, let us catch you up: the Small Mammal House at the Smithsonian National Zoo is home to a colony of naked mole-rats, and for the last several months they’ve been engaged in a quiet—but brutal—battle for political supremacy. Naked mole-rats are one of just two eusocial mammalian species, which means they live much like colonies of bees or ants: one queen reigns supreme over everybody else, and challengers must fight and kill...

    Daniel Bonthius was never much interested in politics before Donald Trump came along. Both his parents are involved in the labor movement, but he earned a musical theater degree in Boston and moved to New York City to make it as an actor. Like many of the city’s aspiring actors, Bonthius, 33, was waiting tables and working for an event planner—and had been doing it for most of a decade when Donald Trump obliterated the political system in 2016. After the election, a shocked Bonthius invited friends over to his home in Sunnyside, Queens, a one-time Irish enclave that has...

    Democrats beat Republicans by 30 points among millennials on the generic ballot, according to a new American Barometer survey. The poll, conducted by Hill.TV and the HarrisX polling company, found that 53 percent of 18- to 34-year-olds surveyed said they would support a Democratic candidate in November's midterm elections, while 26 percent said they would support a Republican candidate

    (snip) The protests liberals whipped up against Kavanaugh this weekend, on the other hand, revealed too much about their own weakness. Washington, D.C. is a majority Democratic city with a black majority. But the Democratic voters out there yelling about Kavanaugh were as white as any country club gathering of Republicans. They looked like a line of Starbucks patrons — Caucasian, professional, largely millennial, with earth tones and earnest expressions aplenty. Men and women wore the same fashionable glasses and more or less the same clothes. It was a Pumpkin Spice Riot. Where were the black Democrats? Where were the...

    What follows is a lovely object lesson – one for the books, really – showcasing the blind, unreasoning hatred of a media talking head toward President Donald Trump. Earlier this week, ESPN’s Max Kellerman saw fit to publicly denigrate golf great Tiger Woods for his refusal to become enrolled in the political left’s campaign of calumny and invective aimed at Trump. Apparently, Woods was asked on Sunday after the final round of The Northern Trust tournament about his relationship with Trump. As it happens, Woods and Trump have played golf together on more than a few occasions. In response to...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who scored an upset victory in a congressional primary over Rep. Joseph Crowley, D-N.Y., in June, visited lawmakers in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday **SNIP** The candidate held separate meetings with Reps. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., and Mark Pocan, D-Wis., and had lunch with Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., the report said. Ocasio-Cortez said that her visit was designed to "get the lay of the land" in Washington. She is widely expected to win in her heavily Democratic New York district in the November election, the report said. She is on board to "translating" her win to help other Democrats around...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio — If Sen. Bernie Sanders is leading a leftist political revolt, then a summit here of moderate Democrats might be the start of a counterrevolution. While the energy and momentum is with progressives these days — the victory of rising star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York, buzz about Democratic Socialism and the spread of the "Abolish ICE!" movement are a few recent examples — moderates are warning that ignoring them will lead the party to disaster in the midterm elections and the 2020 presidential contest. That anxiety has largely been kept to a whisper among the party's moderates...

    As seen on Justice With Judge Jeanine Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren questioned why feminists have not been speaking out against the left's attacks against those on the right, particularly conservative women. Appearing on "Justice with Judge Jeanine" Saturday night, Lahren said that those on the left think that they can harass others in public and think it is acceptable. "What the left believes is that if you challenge their way of thinking in their worldview in an articulate manner, they believe that that's harassment," she said.

    Alan Dershowitz, the lawyer and academic, has revealed he has been "shunned" by former friends on Martha's Vineyard because of his defence of President Donald Trump. The 73-year-old former Harvard Law professor claims liberal elites have closed ranks to exclude him from their social circles on the wealthy Massachusetts island because of his defence of the president's civil liberties. Mr Dershowitz, who famously defended OJ Simpson, has been a vocal critic of the decision to appoint a special counsel to investigate the US president for possible Russian collusion in the 2016 election.

    As I already predicted in my previous article, Andrés Manuel López Obrador just won Mexico’s presidential election in a landslide on Sunday. This is the same guy who has said during a speech last week that a mass exodus from South/Central America to the United States would be a nice thing, and that he as president would stand behind such a “no borders, no countries” move. And the Mexican people believed that would be a great idea, hence they voted a commie Anti Trump/Anti American el-presidente into office, to redistribute wealth and all that socialist crap. According to mainstream news...

When political faction get this extreme, they inevitably attack their own in...

    The 2018 midterm elections offer Americans a vital opportunity to check and balance the disastrous presidency of Donald Trump, to prevent Mitch McConnell from continuing to enable Trump as Senate majority leader, to finish Paul Ryan’s failed speakership in the House, and to end the crisis in the states created by the Republican governors who helped set the stage for Trumpism. This election must also empower leaders who are prepared to make a truly progressive change. This campaign season, The Nation will highlight candidates who recognize the need for issue-driven progressive politics. Here’s an initial list of 10 we’ve got...

    Well, if you’re a red state Democrat, I just don’t get how you can give Shutdown Chuck Schumer a high-five, or whatever was captured on C-Span after the cloture vote to ban abortion after 20 weeks. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) voted with her Democratic colleagues to block the legislation (via Politico): The Senate on Monday blocked a bill, backed by President Donald Trump, to ban abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. The procedural vote, designed to put pressure on red-state Democrats who are up for reelection this fall, fell significantly short of the 60 votes needed to overcome a filibuster....

    Trump’s hysteria-prone critics are no doubt gravely disappointed. But also unrepentant. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi continue to sound grave warnings, hinting that Trump’s dangerous policies are leading the ship of state aground. The night Trump trounced Hillary Clinton, Paul Krugman predicted the stock market, which initially sold off on the unexpected outcome, would “never” recover from the blow. The next day, the Dow soared 257 points, and has barely paused for breath ever since. In the same column, written in the wee hours of Election night, a despondent Krugman said Trump would plunge...
