  • The Democrats Declare a Jew Ban

    Editor's note: The column was co-authored by Bruce Abramson.  Anyone concerned with Jews and Israel should be horrified by the Democrats’ newly released 2020 platform. It directly threatens the Jewish state, employs double-talk calculated to stoke antagonism between the American left and Israel, and pays passing lip-service to opposing antisemitism, but in the gaslighting way Linda Sarsour and Ilhan Omar do; to deny it where it exists and point fingers elsewhere. In both narrative and policy, the platform crosses over the line into deep antisemitic territory. It’s a dangerous acceleration of an approach first tested when Joe Biden was Vice...
  • DNC Chair Perez: Trump’s Vote-by-Mail Opposition a ‘Desperate Effort to Steal an Election’

    Wednesday on MSNBC, Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez accused President Donald Trump of attempting to “steal the election” by opposing vote-by-mail during the coronavirus pandemic. Host Chris Hayes said, “For more on the president’s efforts to subvert the democratic process, I’m joined by the chair of the Democratic National Committee. I’m always conflicted about, you know, stories of the variety the president tweeted. He tweets a lot of things and most of it is nonsense or lies or liable or slander or whatever. But the way he attacked absentee voting today struck me as genuinely dangerous and genuinely sort...

    Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez on Wednesday said he wants to talk about caucus reform and review the status of the primary cycle to reflect a more diverse voter base and representative candidates. "I think the time is ripe for that conversation,” Perez said in an appearance on CNN. “I want to make sure that we reflect the grand diversity of our party in everything we do.” "The candidate who is going to win this race ... is the candidate who does the best job bringing together this entire diverse coalition of the Democratic Party," he said.

    An institute that studies election security criticized the Nevada Democratic Party for planning to use a digital tool for its caucuses, arguing that Nevada was likely to run into many of the same issues that Iowa did with its voting app last week. The Open Source Election Technology (OSET) Institute began its Twitter thread Sunday with a link to a story from The Nevada Independent, which detailed how the Nevada Democratic Party (NDP) will be using a digital "tool" on the day of that state's caucuses on February 22. The Independent reported that NDP staffers made a distinction between its...

    The hiring of a top presidential candidate’s staff member to a position within the Nevada Democratic Party has increased scrutiny of the party as it works to put together a contingency plan for its Feb. 22 caucuses. Dozens of Twitter users — most identified as supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders — on Sunday accused the Democratic Party of corruption and hurled insults at Emily Goldman, who was hired as the party’s Voter Protection Director in January. Many called for Goldman and Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez to be fired. Screenshots of Goldman’s Linkedin account noted she worked as an...

    The drumbeat for Democratic National Committee boss Tom Perez to be “held accountable” for recent party failures appears to be getting louder. The latest Democrats to criticize Perez include U.S. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.; Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.; and Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., all backers of 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. Recent party setbacks have included the vote-count fiasco at Monday’s Iowa caucuses and Tuesday night’s disclosure that two officials on the host committee of the party’s upcoming national convention in Milwaukee had been fired over non-specified allegations that they oversaw a work environment where staff members were not being...

Whether one is a Donald Trump supporter or not, it’s impossible to deny this has been one of the best weeks for the Trump presidency. With record-high approval ratings and a primetime address to showcase the administration’s accomplishments, Trump emerged exonerated from the Senate impeachment trial on Wednesday, ending a three-year effort to remove the president for the crime of winning the 2016 election while Democrats remain in chaos.

    Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair Tom Perez said Tuesday that the app blamed for delaying the results of the Iowa caucus will not be used in the remaining primary contests. "It is clear that the app in question did not function adequately," Perez said in a statement. The app was created by Shadow Inc., a company based in Washington, D.C. "It will not be used in Nevada or anywhere else during the primary election process. The technology vendor must provide absolute transparent accounting of what went wrong." Shadow, a company affiliated with Democratic nonprofit group Acronym, sold an app built...
  • Democrat Strategist Justin Horwitz: ‘Outrageous’ DNC Rigging Against Sanders, Biden ‘Mentally Deteriorating’

    Breitbart ^ | February 1,2020 | HANNAH BLEAU
    While the Democrat establishment tends to favor candidates like Joe Biden (D) and Bloomberg, Horwitz said it is “obvious” that the former vice president is “not all there anymore.” “He’s clearly not as sharp. He’s struggling to find his words. He is a man who is mentally deteriorating, and I think that’s a reason Bloomberg has jumped into the race,” he said, describing the billionaire as a “fallback for the establishment in case Biden truly breaks down mentally.” There is no comparison, Horwitz contends, between Sanders’ grassroots support and the establishment backing of Biden and Bloomberg. “If you just look...

    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.

    There are millions of Americans who didn't vote for Trump who have substantially benefited from the economic boom created by his tax cut and deregulation policies.  The median household income is up $5,003 before taxes for his term so far, and given the tax cuts, the after-tax total must be even higher.  Racial and ethnic minorities with large numbers of low-income members have benefited tremendously from the cutoff of the supply of unskilled labor from illegal aliens, as wages have climbed steeply at that end of the scale. Beth Bauman of Townhall notes that Hispanics have particularly benefitted: The Hispanic unemployment rate currently sits at...

I mean how do they even keep the lights on over there. The chasm between the Republican National Convention and their Democratic counterparts is immense. It feels like the distance is akin to that of the entire continent of Asia. The RNC brought in nearly $30 million for September alone, around four times as much at the DNC. And this comes after the GOPÂ’s $125 million haul for the...

    WESTERVILLE, Ohio—At an event in an ice cream shop downtown in this small suburb of Columbus, hours before Democrats’ presidential debate blocks away, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez held court with a dozen or so young, rising Ohio Democrats to declare that the national party was here for a reason. “We’re here in Ohio because Ohio’s a battleground,” Perez said, “and I’m confident we can win Ohio.” Perez wasn’t just trying to cheer up the troops. He was weighing in on a live, controversial question: Should Democrats give up on Ohio? For more than half a century, this question...

    Prior to the second round of Democratic primary debates in Detroit July 30, DNC Chairman Tom Perez addressed the crowd of voters and donors to lay out what his party had to offer in 2020. After gushing over the twenty candidates’ “inclusive vision” of America, Perez freaked out about democracy and climate change. He vented that “our democracy is on fire and it’s a five-alarm blaze,” and predictably lashed out at Republicans for linking Democrats with the rise of socialism in the U.S. As he brought up climate change he ranted against EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler: TOM PEREZ: And our...

    DNC chair: Programs called socialism by GOP critics ‘make capitalism work’ Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez says that what Republicans call “socialism” actually makes “capitalism work for everyone.” Mr. Perez sat down with Fox News’ Bret Baier Thursday evening in Houston to discuss the future of the Democratic Party. The two men, having just watched ten presidential hopefuls spar on stage, discussed the divide between democratic socialists like Vermont Sen. Bernard Sanders and the more fiscally moderate former Vice President Joe Biden. “You know Brett, socialism is the oldest trick in the book,” Mr. Perez said. “You’re a very...
