    A violent leftist was arrested on Thursday for physically assaulting a 15-year-old Trump supporter and two adults volunteering at a New Hampshire polling site at Windham High School. Read more 6/6 Patrick Bradley, 34, was arrested and charged with simple assault and disorderly conduct for slapping a high school student in the face because he was wearing a red MAGA hat. The teenage boy’s mother told Fox News that Patrick Bradley screamed, “F*ck you!” to her son as he slapped the child in the face. Another man wearing a MAGA hat came in to intervene when Patrick Bradley assaulted him...

    Unhinged leftist activist Michael Vall was arrested in Eureka, California after vandalizing and apparently trying to burn down the Humboldt County Republican party office. To no one’s surprise, it turns out dude is a Bernie supporter. KIEM reports: It happened around 5 am Saturday morning at their office on 5th Street in Eureka. The front windows and glass door of the office were smashed, and an unknown liquid was poured in the entryway. The group posted photos of the damage to their Facebook page. According to Eureka Police, a suspect was located shortly after the incident and is in custody....
  • A Bernie Sanders win spells the end of America’s center-left, which is already a global trend

    The Democratic Party could soon be taken over by a leftist who has never formally been a member (even if he signed a pledge to govern as a Democrat should he make it to the White House). If it’s any consolation to Democrats, it’s a version of the same wrenching dislocation that has beset the center-left throughout the Western world. One reason Bernie Sanders winning the Democratic nomination is entirely imaginable is that it wouldn’t be a freakish occurrence outside the experience of other advanced democracies. In fact, it would be entirely consistent with the travails of traditional center-left parties...

    In his essay Pete Buttigieg in 2000 praises Bernie Sanders and his unapologetic stand for socialism. You just can’t make this stuff up. From the essay. Fortunately for the political process, there remain a number of committed individuals who are steadfast enough in their beliefs to run for office to benefit their fellow Americans. Such people are willing to eschew political and personal comfort and convenience because they believe they can make a difference. One outstanding and inspiring example of such integrity is the country’s only Independent Congressman, Vermont’s Bernie Sanders. Sanders’ courage is evident in the first word he...
  • Why the 2020 presidential campaign polls are misleading

    NY Post ^ | February 13 2020 | John Ziegler
    One of the biggest mistakes that political analysts, especially those who spend a lot of time on Twitter, often make is they assume voters are as engaged in the process as they, or their audiences, are. The reality is that, largely due to media fragmentation, the “average” (more accurately, “median”) voter is even less educated in comparison to us news junkies, who have never had more information instantly available than what we can easily ­access today. Consequently, at least half of the massive electorate for a presidential general election has been, whether we like it or not, paying very little,...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez admitted this week that Sen. Bernie Sanders may have to compromise and nix his ambitious Medicare for All plan if he is elected president. The New York congresswoman, a staunch supporter of the more progressive single-payer healthcare system, made the revelation in an interview with HuffPost that was published Thursday. Ocasio-Cortez noted the difficulties as president of passing legislation, especially for a politically unpopular policy like Medicare for All.

    Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., have seen a recent surge in the 2020 race after the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary, but a new report suggests that the way mainstream media outlets describe the two candidates is not accurate. The Media Research Center's NewsBusters project collected some examples of the news coverage Buttigieg and Klobuchar have received in recent weeks that depicts them as "moderates" and juxtaposed those clips with ones that describe their policies. "Bernie Sanders won the progressive primary there in Iowa and Pete Buttigieg won the moderate one,"...

    New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo visited the White House on Thursday in the hope he could persuade President Trump to reverse a recent decision to boot New Yorkers from Global Entry and several other Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP), which allow travelers to avoid long lines at the U.S. border. The leaders' dispute centered on New York's new “Green Light Law," which lets unauthorized immigrants obtain state driver's licenses and also bars federal immigration agents from accessing state motor vehicle records. The Trump administration said that cutoff from state records threatened public safety and responded by blocking New Yorkers from...
  • Maxine Waters says California deserves more clout in Dem primaries: ‘We are supplying tremendous dollars’

    Thanks to a bill that former Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law in 2017, California will hold its presidential primary election in March this year rather than June, giving the 2020 Democratic candidates an earlier shot at capturing the Golden State’s nearly 500 delegates. But U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters argues that her home state – the nation’s most populous, with nearly 40 million residents -- is still getting shortchanged when it comes to influencing which Democrat carries the party’s banner in presidential elections. “A lot of people have come to the conclusion that it should not simply be Iowa and...
  • MSNBC's Ari Melber calls out Tom Perez, DNC for changing debate rules to help Bloomberg: 'It's not fair'

    MSNBC anchor Ari Melber called out the Democratic National Committee (DNC) as well as its chairman Tom Perez for changing its debate rules that could pave the way for former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to land a spot on the debate stage. The DNC sparked controversy last month after it announced that it would no longer require its candidates to meet a donor threshold, which along with polling benchmarks were required for 2020 Democrats to meet in order to have a podium. But since Bloomberg has been self-funding his campaign, he was considered ineligible to participate despite his...

    U.S. officials have confirmed to Fox News Thursday that a U.S. Navy warship intercepted Iranian-made weapons from a vessel in the Arabian Sea earlier this week. Crew members from the USS Normandy seized a huge cache of weapons from a dhow – a small vessel with lateen sails – on Sunday while conducting maritime security operations in the U.S. Central area of operations. The weapons and weapon components were intended for the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen, according to officials.

    Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said he could potentially endorse President Trump for reelection just a week after he voted to convict the president for abuse of power, according to a report published Thursday. “Everybody can change,” Manchin told Politico. “Maybe the president will change, you know? Maybe that uniter will come out, versus the divider.” Manchin said that, although Trump did his best to unseat him in 2018, the two were having lunch together a week after his third-term reelection.

    With populist Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont now considered the front-runner in the race for the Democratic nomination, concern and resistance is growing among mainstream and establishment Democrats inside and outside the nation’s capital. Moderate lawmakers sounded the alarm bells Thursday, Fox News’ Chad Pergram and Marisa Schultz reported from Capitol Hill. “It’s bad,” one freshman Democrat from a swing district said. “We are having conversations about how to deal with this.”

    Nigerian brothers Abel and Ola Osundairo are prepared to testify at the upcoming trial for Empire actor Jussie Smollett, according to their lawyers, who also mentioned that the two brothers will not feel vindicated unless Smollett is found guilty of lying to police, adding that they do not have any “ill will” toward the actor — only toward his lawyers, for calling them “liars.” “They have no ill will towards Mr Smollett,” said Gloria Schmidt Rodriguez — one of the lawyers for the Osundairo brothers — to the Daily Mail. “They really feel like their role in this now is...

    Roger Waters of the band Pink Floyd has publicly slammed President Donald Trump as a “tyrant and mass murderer,” adding that the president’s supporters have turned the United States into a “fool’s hell.” Waters also said that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the only Democratic presidential candidate who could beat President Trump. The British rocker spoke earlier this week in New York at a Q&A session following a screening of his concert film, Us + Them, according a report from Rolling Stone. He launched into an unhinged rant about President Trump when asked why more Americans aren’t upset about the...

    The coronavirus outbreak has exposed the United States’ dangerous dependence on China for pharmaceutical and medical supplies, including an estimated 97 percent of all antibiotics and 80 percent of the active pharmaceutical ingredients needed to produce drugs in the United States. The economic repercussions of the coronavirus reveal the dangers of allowing one country to have a near monopoly on global manufacturing, David Dayen explains in an article at the American Prospect: China is a source of not only finished goods, but also of input parts and raw materials. A substantial number of the materials needed for defense and electronic...

    U.S. Attorney John Durham, tasked to look into the origins of the FBI’s “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation, is now “investigating CIA resistance to sharing Russian secrets,” according to a Feb. 13 report in The New York Times. According to the article, “Durham appears to be pursuing a theory that the C.I.A., under its former Director John O. Brennan, had a preconceived notion about Russia or was trying to get to a particular result—and was nefariously trying to keep other agencies from seeing the full picture lest they interfere with that goal.” Additionally, Durham is reportedly looking into “whether and how information...

    An Alabama Democrat state lawmaker from Birmingham has introduced legislation that, if passed would mandate, “every Alabama man to undergo a vasectomy within one month of his 50th birthday or the birth of his third biological child, whichever comes first,” according to a report from Alabama-based Yellowhammer News. The bill, filed by State Rep. Rolanda Hollis (D) on Thursday, is viewed by some a response to the 2019 passage by the state legislature of the Human Life Protection Act, a law that is currently making its way through the federal courts that ban abortion with very few exceptions.

    After years of work, the Interstate 35 reconstruction project in Bell County is pretty much done, while a similar project to widen Interstate 14 still has years of work ahead. “Overall, the I-35 Reconstruction Project ... particularly in Waco, is continuing at an aggressive pace, well on track for a 2023 completion. Bell County work remains substantially complete with minor ‘punch list’ items such as completion of the Temple Welcome Monument and the standard establishment of vegetation along the corridor within the Temple/Troy area remaining, prior to final acceptance of the project,” Texas Department of Transportation spokesman Ken Roberts said...

    A handful of protesters chided Joe Biden as he walked out of a Manhattan fundraiser on Thursday, urging the one-time Democratic frontrunner to drop out of the 2020 presidential race. About half a dozen protesters from New York Communities for Change yelled at Biden as he was leaving the Wayfarer restaurant on West 57th Street near Sixth Avenue soon after 8 p.m. “Drop out Joe! Drop out Joe!” they chanted as he walked to a waiting car. “Skip Nevada! Skip South Carolina! Go home early!” one of the demonstrators yelled. “We’re here to mark the death of Joe Biden’s campaign....
