    Mayor Bill de Blasio’s ongoing tease of a presidential run didn’t exactly pull in the crowds during a campaign-esque event in the Granite State. Only 20 people showed up Sunday to hear the leader of America’s largest city hold a roundtable on mental health — including the 14 people on the panel and just six in the audience. There were also about six reporters on hand to make the room at the Sugar River Valley Regional Technical Center look a bit less empty.

    Beto O'Rourke raised $6.1 million in the first 24 hours of his presidential campaign, his campaign said Monday, in what amounts to the largest announced first-day haul of any 2020 Democratic contender to date. The former Texas congressman raised $6,136,763 in online donations from all 50 states in the first day, his campaign said. That tops the $5.9 million one-day total Sen. Bernie Sanders announced after he launched his campaign. The closest other 2020 Democratic candidate to publicize their first-day fundraising total was California Sen. Kamala Harris at $1.5 million.
  • Battle to stay on top of POTUS tweets happening now!

    If any of you have ever visited some of the president's tweets, you know that at the K brothers are always always always in top, then to be followed by a bunch of liberal Trump haters. ALWAYS. Not an accident. Twitter obviously controls this all on purpose. Now, for the first time, there are about 10 patriot posts on top. Its interesting, because I have seen these posts get removed from the top by some trump hater named Ryan Hill. But, the same patriot posts have now somehow got back on top and pushed those haters back down. Has POTUS...

    Beto O’Rourke is a loser. In 2016, he ran against Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate race, and lost. He didn’t lose by much, just 2.6% of the vote in fact. But he still lost, and in the brutal world of US politics that usually means the last anyone hears from you for the rest of your natural life.

    Former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke warned Thursday in his first presidential campaign stop that parts of the planet will soon become uninhabitable, driving a massive wave of climate 'refugees' across the U.S. border, if America's government doesn't adopt emergency measures within the next 12 years. O'Rourke, 46, had formally announced an hour earlier that he will seek the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, ending months of speculation over whether he would try to translate his newfound political celebrity into a White House bid. In the southwestern Iowa town of Keokuk, a sweater-clad Beto told a smallish crowd that by the time...

  • Kamala Harris gains momentum among Democrats with proposal to legalize prostitution

    Decriminalizing prostitution — an idea gaining momentum among some Democrats, including at least one 2020 presidential contender — may one day be traced back to the hookers plying their trade under the elevated train along New York City’s Roosevelt Avenue. That open-air market of prostitutes and johns in Queens, undeterred by the constant threat of arrest and incarceration, has been cited by New York state lawmakers mulling whether it’s time to wave the white flag in the war on the world’s oldest profession.

    Washington governor and 2020 candidate Jay Inslee (D.) said on Sunday he thinks he has humility about being a straight white male, saying he recognizes the advantages he's received as a result of that identity. "Our new CNN/Des Moines Register poll shows only 38 percent of likely Democratic caucus-goers in Iowa say they would be satisfied with a straight white male nominee," CNN anchor Jake Tapper said. "So why are you as a straight white male the right person to lead the Democratic party if there's so much skepticism from Democrats in Iowa?"

    Former Vice President Joe Biden is in the final stages of preparing for a 2020 presidential campaign that is expected to launch next month, according to multiple people familiar with his planning. A formal kickoff is expected by mid-April and would all but cement the size and scope of the Democratic presidential field that currently stands at 12 formally declared candidates, two still in the formal exploratory stage and others still mulling a bid but waiting to see what the former veep might do.

    Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio said Thursday that he will not run for president in 2020, a decision that comes after months of preparations for the Democratic primaries and just days after he appeared to be leaning toward a launch later this month. Brown, who revealed his plans in a conference call with home-state reporters, said he could be more effective in the Senate, where he just won a third term.
  • Trump Abandons ‘America First’ Reforms: ‘We Need’ More Immigration to Grow Business Profits

    Ahead of the 2020 presidential election, President Trump is abandoning his prior “America First” legal immigration reforms to support increases of legal immigration levels in order to expand profits for businesses and corporations. For the fourth time in about a month, Trump suggested increasing legal immigration levels. With Apple CEO Tim Cook sitting next to him at the White House on Wednesday, Trump said he not only wanted more legal immigration but that companies needed an expansion of new arrivals to grow their business. “We’re going to have a lot of people coming into the country. We want a lot...

    There is in the United States today a crisis of leadership — caused and perpetuated by an administration that uses fear to stoke divisions and lies to support broken policies. It would be easy for Americans to grow pessimistic — but as I’ve traveled to 25 states over the past year, I have found that the people of this country are better, and more caring, than these small-minded leaders would have us believe. The civic awakening we have experienced since January 2017 must become a sustained movement to reshape the future of this nation.

    Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper on Monday announced he is running for president, launching a 2020 campaign in which he will lean on his Western roots and decades of executive experience. He made the announcement in a video titled "Standing Tall," which tracks Hickenlooper's life from laid-off geologist, to owner of a brew pub, to mayor of Denver and to governor, and touts the Democrat's experience in a variety of fields as a key reason he should be the person to take on President Donald Trump in 2020. Hickenlooper casts the President as a "bully" in the more than two-minute...

    It’s still well under the radar, but the movement to circumvent the Electoral College gained ground this week. On Sunday, Jared Polis, the governor of Colorado, said he would sign a bill to join the National Popular Vote interstate compact, whose members have pledged to give their electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote. The Maine Legislature, likewise, is mulling membership and will hold hearings to discuss the issue. Attacking those lawmakers, Paul LePage, the former governor of Maine — who still calls into conservative radio shows from his retirement home in Florida — dismissed the proposal...

    Live statement by Michael Cohen during Congressional hearing | 2/27/19 | Me, Myself, & I
    Michael Cohen, testifying before the Congressional committee, has just laid on a thick swathe of LIES about Donald Trump, trying to save his own derriere. It was totally disgusting, a trained seal honking and clapping his flippers together to get that herring. Anyone listening to this noisome recital probably has a strong urge to jump headfirst into the nearest shower, feeling besmirched by the sheer tonnage of schmears, innuendos, and untruths. Poor Mr. Cohen simply wants to unburden himself of the heinous things Mr. Trump forced him to do, don't you see. Point by point, our trained seal went through...

    Progressive groups are reaching out to 2020 Democratic presidential candidates to support their push to expand the number of Supreme Court justices in order to diminish the current conservative majority. So far, the drive by the group named ‘Pack the Courts’ is getting two maybes from Democratic presidential contenders and a no from a likely White House hopeful.
  • Senate fails to pass bill protecting infants surviving abortion

    Today, the United States Senate voted on an anti-infanticide bill introduced by Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The legislation needed 60 votes to pass, and it failed by a vote of 53 in favor and 44 against. The bill stated that “if an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, the infant is a legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States, and entitled to all the protections of such laws.” The 2002 Born Alive Infants Protection Act, signed into law by President George W. Bush, established that any...
