    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Tuesday called for the arrest of violent protesters while taking questions for the first time in 28 days. The former vice president struck a discordant tone with fellow liberals who insist protests against the May killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police are peaceful, and that authorities are to blame for any violence in Portland and other cities. “I think we do need to hold those who violate the law accountable,” Biden said. “We should never let what’s done in a march for equal rights overcome what the reason for the march is. And...

    So much for Democratic enthusiasm for Joe Biden. A co-chair of Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign vividly described how she feels about choosing between Biden and President Trump — likening it to only having to eat half a bowl of excrement. “It’s like saying to somebody, ‘You have a bowl of ---t in front of you, and all you’ve got to do is eat half of it instead of the whole thing.’ It’s still ---t’, ” Sanders co-chair Nina Turner told The Atlantic.

    A group of “progressives” representing a large proportion of delegates won by Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-CA) in California has signed a letter to presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee Joe Biden urging that he pick a running mate from a short list of candidates that does to include local Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA). Instead, they say, he should choose Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), or former Sanders campaign spokesperson Nina Turner, a former Ohio state legislator. The San Francisco Chronicle reports: California Sen. Kamala Harris is widely believed to be on Joe Biden’s short list for vice president,...

    Former Bernie Sanders campaign co-chair Nina Turner on Friday blasted Joe Biden over the comments -- which he later walked back -- about black voters choosing between him and President Trump in November's election. Earlier in the day, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee raised eyebrows during an interview with Charlamagne tha God on the radio show "The Breakfast Club" as he defended his record with the black community. “I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden said. Turner offered a blistering response to the progressive media outlet...

    Nina Turner, former co-chair for the presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., wants progressives “go crazy” and turn up the heat on the Democratic Party and maybe mimic how the Tea Party previously defied Republicans. “What I would love to see the progressive movement do — from the progressive members of the House of Representatives and progressive members who may be in the Senate — is to go crazy,” she said during an interview published on Thursday. Turner told Jordan Chariton, CEO of the liberal outlet Status Coup, that Democrats might want to “take a page out of the...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) during Friday's Democratic debate in New Hampshire distanced himself from criticisms one of his top surrogates leveled recently at former Vice President Joe Biden (D). When pressed about an op-ed written by former Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner (D) in a South Carolina newspaper that declared that Biden has "repeatedly betrayed" black voters by voting with Republicans on criminal justice issues, Sanders said that he would not attack Biden, calling him a friend. "Well I think what Sen. Turner was talking about is some of the early actions of Vice President Biden. But no, Joe Biden...

    Some Democratic National Committee (DNC) members and supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are venting frustration at DNC Chairman Tom Perez over his initial appointments to the committees that will oversee the rules and party platform at the nominating convention in Milwaukee later this year. Sanders’s allies are incensed by two names in particular: former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), who will co-chair the rules committee, and Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chairman John Podesta, who will have a seat on that committee.

    Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders' White House bid and some Democratic National Committee members are frustrated with some initial appointments made by DNC Chairman Tom Perez to the crucial committees that will oversee the rules and party platform at this summer’s presidential nominating convention in Milwaukee, Wis. Their frustration comes after Perez named former Rep. Barney Frank of Massachusetts – who was a surrogate for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign -- as co-chair of the convention’s Rules Committee. And Perez picked John Podesta – who served as Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager – to have a seat on the committee.

    CLEVELAND, Ohio – Nina Turner, the Democratic former state senator from Cleveland who has emerged as a rallying figure for Bernie Sanders' disappointed supporters, said she is considering an offer to run for vice president on the Green Party's national ticket. Massachusetts physician Jill Stein, the party's presumptive presidential nominee, reached out with the pitch, Turner told cleveland.com Sunday evening in a telephone interview. The Green Party opens its convention Thursday in Houston. Turner would stand for nomination there if she agrees to be Stein's running mate. Her decision is expected in the coming days.

    As the party prepares to convene in the birthplace of democracy, it faces dangers from within and without that threaten to destroy its chances to govern at a time of uncertainty, upheaval and unpredictability. The nation’s attention has just been focused on four days of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, capped by a speech in which Donald Trump told us we were unsafe and could only be saved by a strong leader unbound by political correctness, unafraid to confront the world. Democrats have already begun focusing on the excesses of that convention but they risk missing the very important...

    On today's Melissa Harris-Perry show, the perpetually outraged Nina Turner of Ohio ripped Ted Cruz and Chris Christie for their language during this past week's debate: "to call the president a boy, those of us who understand African-American history—cause that's exactly what they called him was a boy—and you don't do that to anybody, and especially to an African-American man." Republican candidates calling President Obama a "boy?" Objectionable! Just one tiny problem for Ms. Turner. They didn't. As can be seen in the debate clip that rolled, Ted Cruz said that "China is running over President Obama like he is...

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | January 13, 2014
    State Sen. Nina Turner (D., Ohio) gave the impression Sunday on MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry that “103 million Americans” had lost their unemployment benefits when they expired at the end of 2013, because of the Republican Party. If Turner was accurate, that would mean nearly one-third of the country is out of work. The correct figure was 1.3 million.

    So much for civility. With Ed Schultz goading her on, a Dem state senator from Ohio referred to Republican elected officials as "occupiers" and urged women among other things to use their "passion" to "take out" the "right-wing occupiers." Nina Turner, the state senator in question, used language that would have caused an MSM outrage had a Republican used it to call for people to "take out" Dem "occupiers." View the video here.

    COLUMBUS – Before getting a prescription for Viagra or other erectile dysfunction drugs, men would have to see a sex therapist, receive a cardiac stress test and get a notarized affidavit signed by a sexual partner affirming impotency, if state Sen. Nina Turner has her way. The Cleveland Democrat introduced Senate Bill 307 this week. A critic of efforts to restrict abortion and contraception for women, Turner says she is concerned about men’s reproductive health. Turner’s bill joins a trend of female lawmakers submitting bills regulating men’s health. Turner said if state policymakers want to legislate women’s health choices through...
