    Democrats have an endgame in mind when it comes to thwarting Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation. Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, revealed as much in an interview this week. Speaking to Politico, Hirono said Senate Democrats will try to keep retired Justice Anthony Kennedy's seat vacant until after the 2020 elections, should Kavanaugh's confirmation ultimately fail.

    The “Fahrenheit 11/9” director also said Americans should expect the “evil genius” to be re-elected in 2020. Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore said he believes President Donald Trump either wrote or directed one of his staffers to write the anonymous Op-Ed in The New York Times that described an alleged “resistance” effort within his administration. “Trump or one of his minions wrote it,” Moore told CNN in an interview published Sunday. “He’s the master distractor. He’s the king of the misdirect. If we have learned anything by now, it’s that he does things to get people to turn away.” He continued:...

    The Politico ^ | September 14, 2018 | Bill Scher
    One month ago, Michael Avenatti—the Stormy Daniels lawyer, Donald Trump antagonist, and yes, potential 2020 presidential candidate—spoke at an Iowa Democratic Party fundraiser and declared to a cheering crowd that there was “no greater question facing our party and our nation” than “how” Democrats fight. He chastised Democrats for having “a tendency to bring nail clippers to a gun fight” when they should be fighting “fire with fire.” Avenatti is the lead storm chaser in a little-noticed front in the 2020 Democratic presidential campaign: Who can out-Trump the sitting president by going the furthest to break procedural “norms”? Even if...

    Conservative commentator and outspoken "Never Trump" critic Bill Kristol says he is building a "war machine" within the Republican party to challenge President Trump's 2020 reelection campaign, according to CNBC. Kristol told the network that he's preparing "for a primary run against Trump," adding that Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) is on his shortlist of possible candidates. Kasich was unsuccessful in his 2016 bid for the Republican presidential nomination, only managing to beat Trump in his home state. Kristol also said Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) and outgoing Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) are also being considered. “We are thinking of and...
  • Source: ‘Mike Bloomberg Running for President in 2020’

    09/14/2018 12:00:35 PM PDT · by PFW · 27 replies
    A source of CBS News told the network that Bloomberg is contemplating the move partially due to regrets he didn’t run in 2016, as he believes he could have prevented President Donald Trump’s victory. The 76-year-old would be the oldest person to run. He is a political independent but endorsed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential elections, calling Trump a “risky, reckless and radical choice.” “Mike Bloomberg told me he is going to run in 2020,” one source is quoted by the Times of London. “He has the money to see it through while other candidates knock themselves out.”

    Billionaire ex-mayor Mike Bloomberg plans to run for president in 2020 as a Democrat, The Times of London reported Thursday. Bloomberg, who considered independent runs for the White House in 2008, 2012 and 2016, will challenge President Trump, the paper reported, citing sources.
  • Trump will win by landslide in 2020. Liberals are the ones saying this, & that explains everything.

    The bombshell admission came last week on MSNBC. New York uber-liberal Donny Deutsch said, “Trump will be re-elected in 2020 by a landslide.” That—while amazing—is not the bomb. It’s what he said next: “That’s why Trump must be removed from office now.” As Wayne Allyn Root put it: “Donny revealed what liberals are all thinking, deep down. Trump is a lock for re-election by a wide margin. As Deutsch admitted, that’s why he must be stopped now. Crazed liberals scream for his removal … impeachment … even assassination. Because they know Trump is succeeding. He is effective, he is erasing...
  • Hillary Clinton’s Reason For Opposing Brett Kavanaugh? Global Warming

    The Daily Caller ^ | September 7, 2018 | Michael Bastasch, Energy Editor
    Former Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton wants supporters to tell their senators to vote against Judge Brett Kavanaugh becoming the newest justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. Clinton’s main reason for opposing President Donald Trump’s second Supreme Court nominee? Man-made global warming. “Replacing Kennedy with Kavanaugh would swing the Court to a new, hard-right majority that would rule against curbing greenhouse gases for years—maybe decades—that we can’t afford to waste on inaction,” Clinton wrote in a series of tweets published Friday....

    Shortly after Joe Biden boarded a recent flight from Washington to New York, a string of passengers began stopping at his seat in coach to deliver some version of the same message: Run, Joe, run. "We're with you," one said, according to a Democratic strategist who happened to be on the plane and witnessed the scene. "You've got to do this," said another. Biden himself is more conflicted — but he is listening keenly to the supporters pushing him to run for the White House in 2020. Biden is convinced he can beat President Donald Trump, friends and advisers say,...

    Former VP rejects tribal politics. The president embraces it ANALYSIS | Two very different speeches by two very different politicians Thursday — made 1,600 miles apart — provide a possible preview of the next presidential campaign. Former Vice President Joe Biden, a potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, went first by feting his longtime friend Sen. John McCain at a memorial service for the late Arizona Republican in Phoenix. Biden spoke about “values, fairness, honesty, dignity, respect,” and McCain’s belief in “giving hate no safe harbor.” Biden spent much of his eulogy lauding McCain’s willingness to work with Democrats and lamenting...

    Editor’s note: There are many reasons why I enjoy, and appreciate, the thoughts and commentary from Mr. Bill O’Shaughnessy, chairman of Whitney Radio and WVOX 1460 AM radio. First, he is one of the lone survivors of bi-partisanship, and of telling it like it is regardless of political party. “Mr. O,” as we like to call him, is a supporter of both President Donald Trump and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. He endorsed former County Executive Rob Astorino over New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson is 2013, and then endorsed George Latimer over Astorino in 2017. Mr. O is also unafraid to come...

    Senate Democrats with White House ambitions are stepping up their political activities, as the start of the 2020 presidential election cycle is less than 70 days away. Washington’s focus is currently on the battle for control of the Senate and House, which will most likely be decided on Nov. 6. But the following day will mark the unofficial start of the 2020 presidential election cycle, and the field of Democrats vying to challenge President Trump will be crowded. There are at least six likely presidential candidates in the Senate Democratic Caucus: Sens. Cory Booker (N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Kamala Harris...

    SALT LAKE CITY — The progressive activists who gathered in Utah two weeks ago to strategize for the midterm elections could each recall a moment when they realized the Democratic Party was their foe and decided to quit it. For Kenneth Mejia, 27, who ran for Congress as a Democratic write-in candidate two years ago, it happened when the party declined to include policies that inspire him — like single payer health care and a ban on fracking — in its 2016 party platform. For Diane Moxley, 49, who canvassed for Barack Obama in 2008, it was when the Occupy...

    <p>Many voters express frustration that Congress is paralyzed, but what action are people demanding? History has taught us that going after sitting presidents for “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors” has not brought about conviction in the Senate. Most recently, the attempts to remove Presidents Nixon and Clinton from office directly contributed to today’s divisiveness. What might a Trump indictment or impeachment do to the country?</p>

    Billionaire Tom Steyer is leading a multi-million dollar effort to remove Donald Trump from the presidency. He is also looking into pursuing the job himself – especially if Democrats do well in elections this fall. Steyer has said publicly that he's not ruling out a 2020 run for president. But behind the scenes, the former hedge fund chief is taking a more aggressive approach toward launching a campaign for the White House, sources told CNBC. According to interviews with six people close to Steyer, the Democratic mega donor has privately indicated he's preparing to make a decision about running. He...

    The big difference in President Donald Trump's re-election campaign in 2020 could be the level of support he receives from the black community. And, the man most despised by the black community could become the most pro-black president of the modern era. A Rasmussen poll released last week indicates growing support for Trump among blacks. A big part of that is economics. For the first time ever, black unemployment has fallen below six percent. That means record numbers of black men, women, and youth are employed. Trump has created opportunities where for decades, the Democrats have offered only unfulfilled promises....

    The first inkling I got that a lot more blacks liked Trump than they dared let on was during a dinner table discussion with a relative a couple of days before the 2016 presidential election. He flatly said that he was voting for Trump. There was dead silence, shock, and then loud outbursts of “no” followed by non-stop pillorying of him. He stuck to his guns and said Trump appealed to him because he represented change and he thought he’d be good for small business and would cut taxes. It was a textbook Horatio Alger, laissez faire rationalization that would...

    Omarosa Manigault-Newman should never have been allowed to breathe Situation Room air, and that she did, while jeopardizing national security, is a sad and frightening testament to the Trump administration’s utter lack of seriousness from its conception. And now, the President is paying the price for hiring some of the worst people to work for him: An unqualified, backbiting and dishonest former employee is waging a public relations war. I have no idea if what Manigault-Newman is alleging Trump did or said is true. It’s all plausible — would anyone be shocked to learn a man who has openly, publicly...
