    Bernie Sanders blazed across the Bay State yesterday, drawing record crowds, name-dropping Elizabeth Warren and greeting rapturous crowds on his first campaign tour of Massachusetts. “As your senator, Elizabeth Warren, reminds us: This is a rigged economy. Heads, they win. Tails, you lose,” the self-avowed socialist told more than 20,000 Boston supporters. “We’re going to create an economy that works for the middle class and not just the 1 percent.” The Democratic hopeful first stopped in Springfield, and then made his way to the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, where he drew deafening cheers with his signature impassioned pledges to...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | October 2, 2015 | By James Freeman
    At least some Democrats are resisting Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s purge of the liberal intelligentsia. This week Ms. Warren succeeded in forcing the resignation of respected scholar Robert Litan from the Brookings Institution after he revealed that a new Labor Department regulation could cost investors billions. Now five Democratic economists have authored a letter to protest Warren’s bullying. Robert Lawrence of Harvard’s Kennedy School and Bowman Cutter of the Roosevelt Institute are among those writing “to express our concern over our colleague Bob Litan’s treatment at the hands of the Brookings Institution and Senator Elizabeth Warren.” Also signing the letter are...

    PPP's newest North Carolina poll finds that Donald Trump is holding his ground- at least compared to where he was in the state six weeks ago. Trump leads with 26% to 21% for Ben Carson, 12% for Carly Fiorina, 10% for Marco Rubio, 9% for Ted Cruz, 6% for Mike Huckabee, 5% for Jeb Bush, 4% for John Kasich, and 2% for Chris Christie. Rounding out the field are Rick Santorum and Bobby Jindal at 1%, and Jim Gilmore, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, and Rand Paul all at less than 1%. Trump's 26% is almost identical to his 24% standing...

    According to the experts, any day now a civil war will break out in California. It’s simple deductive reasoning. Droughts cause civil wars and California is having one doozy of a drought. Ergo, there will be a civil war in California. That’s what former Maryland governor and Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley claims. Well, not about California (just yet), but about Syria: “One of the things that preceded the failure of the nation-state of Syria and the rise of ISIS was the effect of climate change and the mega-drought that affected that region, wiped out farmers, drove people to cities,...

    Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton's lead in the Democratic presidential primary race has grown -- and if Vice President Joe Biden decides to stay out of the race, her numbers would rise even higher, a new CNN/ORC poll shows. Clinton is backed by 42% of Democratic primary voters nationally, compared to 24% for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, 22% for Biden and 1% for former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley. That's a marked improvement over an early September CNN/ORC poll that found Clinton leading Sanders, 37% to 27%, with Biden at 20%. And Biden's support comes almost entirely from Clinton's camp.

    Failed racist Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has announced that she isn’t running for re-election. I wonder if #blacklivesmatter thugs will start to riot and claim it’s the white man’s fault that Rawlings-Blake isn’t running for re-election. Baltimore has been run into the ground by Democrats for the last 50+ years. Stephanie Rawlings-Blake might is not only a racist, but might very well be the worst of all the Democrats who have run Baltimore into the ground over the last 50 years. That’s quite an accomplishment when the mayor’s list includes dimwits like Martin O’Malley. Failed Baltimore racist mayor won’t seek...

Perhaps she should have been focused on her city’s future when she decided to give rioters “space to destroy” Baltimore after the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody in April. “I’m focused right now on governing rather than campaigning for mayor at this critical time in our history,” Blake...

    A little-noticed lawsuit brought by a Maryland man challenging the state's contorted congressional districts will be heard this fall by the Supreme Court — where it has the potential to open a new line of constitutional attack for opponents of gerrymandering. Stephen M. Shapiro, a former federal worker from Bethesda, argues that the political map drawn by state Democrats after the 2010 census violated the First Amendment rights of Republicans by placing them in districts in which they were in the minority, marginalizing them based solely on their political views. The issue before the Supreme Court is whether a lower...

    A disturbing trend in recent weeks has convinced Americans that an all-out assault is being waged on our men and women in uniform. From a gas station murder in Houston, to a shooting ambush in New York City and a slaying in Illinois, police officers across the country are afraid to do their jobs because it is apparent that the people they pledged to protect are turning on them. The majority of Americans are not blind to the new dangers police face.

Martin O'Malley used his speech to the convention to publicly chide DNC leaders for limiting the number of presidential debates. Mr. O'Malley said that DNC officials had not only silenced debate among Democratic candidates but silenced the party’s ability to respond to Republican presidential candidates, whose recent TV debate reached more than 20 million Americans. “They malign our president’s record of achievement, they denigrate women and immigrant families. They doubled down, on trickle...

    Martin O’Malley may not be on his way to the White House (or the Democrat nomination for that matter) but he’s at least proving useful in fomenting dissent among the progressive ranks. At the big DNC meeting in Minneapolis he took to the stage to launch an attack not on Donald Trump… not on his primary rival Hillary Clinton… but on Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. One of his chief complaints has to do with the debate format, which many are seeing as a way for DWS to establish a smooth glide path for Clinton to win the nomination. We’ve heard plenty of...

The move further polarizes the progressive wing of the party by moving them further to the left of both the Republican Party, and corporate centrist Democrats such as Hillary Clinton. In response to the Democratic Party’s vote, Terrence Wise, a Kansas City, Mo.

Then, as now, the response of cultural leaders — especially religious leaders — is a story about the corruption, and potential renewal, of Western civilization. Today we’re told there is no other way to achieve the research results we desire, because fetal tissue is a “uniquely rich source” of stem cells, which provide invaluable clues to human development. Second, we’re led to believe that research on aborted babies...

    Today marks the one-year anniversary of the shot heard ’round America — the one that left Michael Brown’s lifeless body lying on a Ferguson, Mo., street for hours and then left the nation reeling and roiling ever since. Yet watching the GOP candidates and Fox News moderators shape and prioritize the nation’s most pressing problems Thursday night, one couldn’t help but wonder: Does “Black Lives Matter” matter to them at all? In a two-hour debate, which frankly felt much longer, only two candidates were even asked about race. First, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker answered a question about the Black Lives...

    RUSH: A new Fox poll out yesterday, last night shows Donald Trump is just soaring. Trump is gaining ground on everybody in the GOP field and over Hillary. It's a Fox News poll, NBC poll, and in both of these polls, Hillary, the bottom is starting to fall out identically, exactly as it started to happen in 2008. And that's why the Democrats are starting to push out these stories about what a great guy Biden is and those gaffes that he makes, why, they just make him more lovable. That's old Joe. Telling the guy in a wheelchair to...

    Have we come to expect this now of our United States attorneys general? The image is still emblazoned on my mind: those Black Panthers with billy clubs and paramilitary outfits confronting voters at a voting station. Video, proof, and no action from then-attorney general Eric Holder. Now we have Loretta Lynch, a family friend of Eric Holder and his wife, and also a person who received her big career break from Bill Clinton. Eric Holder, who was held in contempt of Congress, who sued states that attempted to enforce purposely unenforced federal law, never provided all Fast and Furious documents...

    BALTIMORE – After 10 people were shot — seven of them in one incident — overnight in Baltimore following the city’s most violent month in decades, police announced Sunday that 10 federal agents will embed with the city’s homicide unit for the next two months. The special agents detailed to the city from the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Agency, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the U.S. Marshals Service and the U.S. Secret Service represent a “flipping of the script of sorts,” Interim Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said. “That’s a bit unusual because local police departments —...

    When former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley signed the bill that created his state’s Obamacare exchange, he bragged that it was “being established using no state funds… due to federal grants.” Later, when the online “marketplace” exploded on the launch pad and a new IT company was hired to untangle the wreckage, O’Malley’s top health official assured Maryland voters that this would be paid for with “leftover federal grants.” Consequently, it surprised many when Maryland’s Attorney General announced a $45 million settlement with the original contractor the proceeds of which would be split between the federal government and the state. But...

    Former SC Democratic party chair Dick Harpootlian told MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki Sunday Vice President Joe Biden’s consideration of a presidential run actually gives Democrats the best chance of retaining the White House in 2016. Harpootlian said Hillary Clinton’s track record will cause her and the Democrats to “die a death of a thousand cuts,” yet Biden is “an inspirational figure” that voters can rally around. HARPOOTLIAN: I think Hillary comes into the race, as she did in ’08 with all kinds of baggage… There’s going to be distractions, we saw just this week with the Wall Street Journal about payments...

Martin O’Malley called on Congress to ban “the sale of assault weapons” and “[establish] a national gun registry.” He also said it is time to “[increase] inspections” on gun shops and mandate that gun owners lock up their guns in their homes.
