    Slowly and subtly, Delaware County barber shops are doing business again despite the governor’s order forbidding it. In Media, a few blocks from the borough offices, Giovanni’s Barber Shop was back in operation offering full services Wednesday. Owner Nichole Missino has her fingers crossed that her new, relatively low-key approach and detail to safety and sanitation procedures to reduce the potential spread of the coronavirus will work.

    The American Prospect ^ | 5-18-2020 | Alexander Sammon
    No matter how you slice it, what happened in last week’s special election for California’s 25th Congressional District was not good for Democrats. In resounding fashion, Democratic hopeful Christy Smith, a state assemblywoman from Santa Clarita, was beaten by Republican defense industry executive Mike Garcia. While ballots are still being counted in what was an almost all-mail-in election, recent tallies had Garcia, a Trump endorsee, trouncing Smith by a double-digit margin .... Smith conceded quickly. There are the coronavirus caveats. Stay-at-home orders meant low turnout, which favored Garcia: older, whiter, and more-affluent voters tend to vote by mail already and...

    Ilhan Omar has a year full of scandals. The Democrats always protected her along with their puppy the mainstream media. Last year, a report claimed that Ilhan Omar and Ahmed Hirsi filed joint tax returns in at least 2014-2015. Yet Ilhan Omar was legally married to another man from 2009-2017. A sitting congresswoman may have filed EIGHT YEARS of fraudulent, felonious, tax returns. The Democrats denied the alleged indiscretions, though the complaints were still unconfirmed to the public at the time. Her short political career is constantly shaken with scandals. Today another scandal broke out. Ilhan Omar asked for donations...

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump erupted at his top political advisers last week when they presented him with worrisome polling data that showed his support eroding in a series of battleground states as his response to the coronavirus comes under criticism. As the virus takes its deadly toll and much of the nation’s economy remains shuttered, new surveys by the Republican National Committee and Trump’s campaign pointed to a harrowing picture for the president as he faces reelection. “I am not f—ing losing to Joe Biden,” he repeated in a series of heated conference calls with his top campaign officials,...

    When asked about the 2020 election between presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden and President Donald Trump, McCain refused to say who will be getting her vote. However, she did say, “I keep telling everyone I will promise you will know who I'm voting for but it won't take a rocket scientist to know.” Joe Biden was a long-time friend to the McCain family and even spoke at John McCain’s funeral. Whereas Donald Trump did not attend the funeral and has repeatedly attacked the war hero and long-time Arizona senator. “There is one who has made pain in my life a...

    THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION Florida voters don't have a clear favorite in the upcoming presidential election. If the election for president were being held today, former Vice President Joe Biden would get 46 percent of the vote, while Trump would get 42 percent. The candidates are holding their bases just about equally well, as Biden wins among Democrats 91 - 4 percent and Trump wins among Republicans 89 - 7 percent. The race is close among the key swing group, independents, with Biden getting 44 percent of the vote and Trump receiving 37 percent.

    Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The 11th Hour,” former lead strategist for Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign James Carville said the presumptive Democratic Party nominee former Vice President Joe Biden would “wipeout” President Donald Trump in 2020. (snip) Carville said, “First of all, he (Trump) won with 46.1%. He’s literally lost 95% of the elections that have taken place between the time of his election and right now. His polling numbers are going down, and they’re awful. Usually, in a crisis – I mean, Jimmy Carter was at 67% in the Iran hostage crisis. The prime minister of Italy is over 70%....

    SANTA FE — A prospective candidate in the race for the 3rd Congressional District seat who was disqualified by the New Mexico Secretary of State’s Office for using the wrong form to collect petition signatures is vowing to contest the decision through legal means. In an inculpatory statement provided to the Journal, the campaign for Republican Anise Golden-Morper accused Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse-Oliver, a Democrat, of playing politics and using “dirty tricks” to eliminate the leading fundraiser among GOP candidates. “Anise is being targeted by a hyper-partisan witch hunt similar to what just happened to President Trump in Washington...

    MSNBC’s Joy Reid said Tuesday on her network’s New Hampshire primary coverage that to defeat President Donald Trump, the 2020 Democratic nominee will have to “fight like a Republican.” Reid pointed to former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg because “he is a Republican, or used to be, anyway.” Reid said, “He still sounds like a Republican to a lot of people. So it’s a weird coalition.... (snip) (Reid) continued, “I know Republicans who — they don’t mind the fiscal policies of Trump. They like that, but they also want to sleep at night.

    Mark Ronchetti, a meteorologist in Albuquerque and one of the most popular television figures in the state, is joining the race for U.S. Senate in New Mexico, adding more drama to a contest some Democrats had believed was a safe seat. Ronchetti, 46, announced Tuesday he is jumping into the fight for the GOP nomination after stepping down for his job Monday as chief meteorologist for the CBS affiliate in Albuquerque. ... Ronchetti said he was jumping into the race because he was “fed up” with politicians in Washington not solving problems. He called himself a “proud conservative New Mexican”...

    Businessman Louie Sanchez remembers growing up in a trailer in the South Valley where he said he learned the value of hard work. It’s those working class roots he wants to emphasize when he launches a bid for the U.S. Senate on Monday.

    NBC NEWS: 'Meet the Press' moderator Chuck Todd joins TODAY to look ahead at what’s to come in Washington in 2020..... (snip) "It's pretty simple campaign strategy, gin up the base and try to scare independents from the Democratic nominee," Todd said. "It doesn't matter who the nominee is," Todd said of the Democratic candidates. "It is a strategy that depends on a middle of the electorate overlooking the president’s personal character and somehow getting him to reelection. I think it' a very uphill battle for him."

    Maxwell, the late owner of Mirror Newspapers, invested $2 million in Mr Romney's first private equity fund, which launched the controversial career in finance that the Republican presidential challenger now cites as proof of his ability to lead the US to prosperity. He was recruited by Lyons, a late colleague of Mr Romney's at Bain & Company and one of the "Guinness Four" who were convicted in 1990 over the infamous share-trading fraud at the drinks firm. Lyons and his family invested almost $3 million in Mr Romney's fund.

McCammond, a politics reporter covering the 2020 presidential election, wrote: “Just FYI Charles Barkley told me tonight “I don’t hit women but if I did I would hit you,” and...

    'Trump basically turned me into a Democrat': Working-class white women drifting away from the president DUBUQUE, Iowa — One of the essential storylines of the 2016 presidential election was the hidden Donald Trump voter: the person who wasn’t surveyed by pollsters or comfortable telling friends or family about who they thought was best to lead the country. Three years ago, thousands of these Americans — many working class, residing in the middle of the country — helped deliver the most astounding electoral surprise in modern history. Now, as they review the Trump presidency a year before his reelection, some are...

    Alleged sexual predator Harvey Weinstein was fawned over by fans and friends on Thursday during a night out at an exclusive SoHo lounge where he allegedly sexually assaulted someone more than a decade ago. The disgraced movie mogul sat in Cipriani’s dimly lit “Socialista” lounge — where he allegedly masturbated in front of a woman in 2007 — on West Broadway near Broome Street and was approached by a number of patrons who complimented him. “I love your movies,” one man told Weinstein. Others shook his hand and rubbed his shoulder as he enjoyed the evening in the chic lounge...
