    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) told CNN on Thursday that he is not publicly backing a presidential contender in the 2020 race. “I’m not planning on endorsing in the presidential race,” Romney, the former 2012 Republican nominee for president, told CNN. “At this stage, I’m not planning on endorsing in the primary or in the general.” Although there are three Republican challengers looking to primary President Donald Trump — former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL), and former Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC) — many state parties are canceling their primary contests as a way to protect the incumbent....

    Former first lady Michelle Obama encouraged her followers to remember during the back-to-school season that girls around the world have limited access to attend school. Obama shared a photo from her school days as part of #WorldChairtyDay, while urging others to post #BackToSchool photos, support the Girls Opportunity Alliance and donate to its GoFundMe page. "As students here in the U.S. head back to school, let's remember that more than 98 million adolescent girls around the world don't have that opportunity," she tweeted Thursday. The Girls Opportunity Alliance is run by the Obama Foundation. They reported that out of 750...
  • Kamala Harris Would Eliminate Filibuster To Pass Green New Deal

    California Democratic Senator Kamala Harris said she would work to scrap the Senate filibuster as president if Republicans refuse to work with Democrats to pass the Green New Deal. The Democratic 2020 presidential candidate made the comments during a CNN town hall Wednesday evening, stating that in the event she won the presidency and Senate Republicans refused to work with Democrats to pass the legislation, eliminating the 60 vote requirement for ending Senate debate would be an avenue to pursue. “If [Republicans] fail to act, as president of the United States, I am prepared to get rid of the filibuster...

    The man who killed seven people in Odessa, Texas, over the weekend had been fired from his trucking job hours before the mass shooting, according to multiple reports. The gunman, identified Sunday as Seth Aaron Ator, lead officials on a high speed chase during which he indiscriminately fired on motorists and police officers. Ator was killed after being chased by officers. The New York Times first reported that Ator had been fired from his trucking job in Odessa. ADVERTISEMENT He was pulled over Saturday by state troopers for failing to use a turn single before beginning firing, according to police....

    Fresh from her transatlantic sailboat crossing, teen climate activist Greta Thunberg was joined by hundreds of American teenagers on Friday at a protest outside the United Nations headquarters in New York City. They carried hand-drawn placards with messages such as "United behind the science" and "Act now or we will." And they chanted "System change, not climate change” and "Don't just watch us, join us," the Guardian of London reported. While boasting of a carbon-free trans-Atlantic trip, it turns out her sailing team will fly back to Europe and another team will fly to the U.S. to take the boat...

    Country and pop singer superstar Taylor Swift vowed to become more political earlier this year, which left many "Swifties," as her fans are called, wondering how she would go about doing that. It turns out, being more political simply means kowtowing to the leftist mob and being anti-Trump and showing support for abortion. Ahead of her newly released album, Lover, Swift sat down with The Guardian to discuss her newfound political agenda. In short, she said she has become disillusioned with America and its values. This s particularly due to President Donald J. Trump and Republicans, she said. She claimed...

    A Republican strategist and former 2016 presidential campaign spokesman for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) laid out three things that the GOP must do to ensure President Donald Trump is reelected next year, including some surprises — such as, he believes California a sign of things to come for the GOP without a plan to address it. In an op-ed for The Hill, Ron Nehring writes that while “California has become a running joke” for his party, it’s really “the canary in the coal mine, not an outlier.” That is, the state is a massive warning sign for the Republican Party....

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Saturday invoked the Holocaust while vowing to go to war against white nationalism and racism if he wins the 2020 presidential election. "I'm Jewish, my family came from Poland. My father's whole family was wiped out by Hitler and his white nationalism," Sanders said while speaking at the Young Leader's Conference in Atlanta. "Too many people have fought over the years, too many people have died against racism to let it resurface and flourish in America." "We will go to war with nationalism and racism in every aspect of our lives," Sanders added, before arguing...
  • Buddy Fletcher and Ellen Pao’s marriage ending with mudslinging and acrimony

    New York Post ^ | August 16, 2019 | 10:34pm | Updated | Carleton English and Emmett Berg
    Buddy Fletcher is so broke he can’t afford his divorce from Ellen Pao, The Post has learned. The former high-flying hedge fund manager — who once rubbed elbows with Lauren Bacall and Roberta Flack — has no lawyer and is representing himself in a divorce from Pao, the former interim CEO of Reddit. He claims in court papers that the divorce, which is ongoing, left him “homeless” at one point, including a period of living in his car. The couple — known as much for Pao’s Silicon Valley gender discrimination claims as Fletcher’s financial downfall — have been slowly working...

    Having worked in Washington, DC., since 2001, I’ve seen some really stupid things. Not just things done by me and my friends, but by those in power, those in so-called “respectable” positions. Nothing I’ve seen (or done) comes close to what we’ve all witnessed since the election of Donald Trump.There were always people, usually on the left, who casually tossed around Hitler analogies, but they were quickly shutdown or dismissed as kooks. Godwin’s Law, which is “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one,” held most people in check. Comparisons to...
  • Stacey Abrams, Still Believing She Was Robbed of Election, Launches 'Fair Fight 2020'

    Democrat Stacey Abrams ran an unsuccessful campaign for Georgia governor last year. If you ask her, it only failed because it was unfair. She and many of her supporters maintain that voter suppression stole the election out of her rightful hands. The Republican prevailed with 1,978,408 votes over Abrams's 1,923,685 votes. But even with the 55,000-vote deficit, Abrams didn't concede. In fact, last April, she started claiming she'd won. Kemp was also the secretary of state at the time of the election, and Abrams argued he should have resigned that post. Her group, Fair Fight, sued the state for what...

    Obviously, the stranger who called Chris Cuomo "Fredo" touched a very sensitive nerve in the anchor for the third-rated cable news operation. As the son and brother of two governors of New York, Chris may feel himself an underachiever, perhaps occupying his position of prominence solely on the basis of his family ties. That could explain the vehemence, verbal thuggery, and victimology of the unhinged rant that followed. Warning: the video embedded below is NOT SAFE FOR WORK: In case you are not able to listen to the vile language where you are reading this, here are some narrated excerpts,...

    "Queens district attorney candidate Tiffany Cabán conceded defeat Tuesday night — six weeks after the Democratic primary election that pitted her against the establishment-backed Queens Borough President Melinda Katz." “We terrified the Democratic establishment,” Cabán told her supporters at a party in Astoria. “We showed [that] you can run on a boldly decarceral platform,” she added referring to her criminal justice reforms. “You don’t have to play by the old rules.”

    Before any of them takes the debate stage on Tuesday and Wednesday, the 2020 Democratic candidates will already have put in dozens of hours each preparing. But here’s what they need to understand: Nothing they do to prepare for the primary debates will feel remotely similar to when the nominee faces Donald Trump in a debate. My perspective on this is unique: I was assigned the role of playing Trump during Hillary Clinton’s general election debate prep in 2016. His stand-in. Her sparring partner. The ball machine. Over 17 years of working for her, I’ve argued with and annoyed Hillary...

    U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., has unfollowed President Donald Trump on Twitter in the wake of attacks on Democratic congress members. “I’m unfollowing the President of the United States today on Twitter, because his feed is the most hate-filled, racist, and demeaning of the 200+ I follow, and it regularly ruins my day to read it,” Murphy tweeted Sunday morning. “So I’m just going to stop. I can’t believe I just typed that.” Democrats have condemned several of the presidents’ recent tweets as racist. Two weeks ago, Trump tweeted four Democratic congresswomen of color should “go back … (to) the...

    Flailing Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke, whose poll rankings show him the one-percent range, alongside plunging campaign donations, is splashing around like a drowning man now, throwing out every epithet he can. He's skidded down to Nazi talk at this point, declaring President Trump's sizable presidential rallies "Nuremberg rallies." Here's the Fox News report: Democratic 2020 hopeful Beto O'Rourke said in an interview Monday that his hometown of El Paso, Texas, could be the modern-day Ellis Island and likened President Trump's recent campaign speech in North Carolina to a Nazi rally. "Yes, President Trump is a racist," O'Rourke told ABC...

    Americans must accept more of the world’s refugees into their job markets and neighborhoods, says a Washington Post op-ed by Walter Mondale, the Democrat presidential candidate who lost 49 of 50 states to President Ronald Reagan in November 1984. “There is hope,” Mondale says in his op-ed, continuing: While most Americans do not have the privileges my office afforded me in 1979, nor the platforms upon which to speak out, there are steps everyone can take to make a real, tangible impact. Contact your representatives in Washington. Make the case for an increase in refugee admissions. Speak up against this...

    Billionaire Tom Steyer officially entered the presidential race on Tuesday, saying he would seek the Democratic nomination for president despite having previously ruled out a run in January. In a video released Tuesday morning, Steyer said, "if you think that there's something absolutely critical, try as hard as you can and let the chips fall where they may. And that's exactly what I'm doing. My name's Tom Steyer, and I'm running for president."

Soccer fans are focused on the goals and team play that has gotten the women two games away from the World Cup. On the other hand, those, like me, who cannot give a fat rat’s backside about soccer have been stunned by her display of selfishness.</p>
