    Election voter fraud is becoming a major concern ahead of the 2020 presidential election. The Heritage Foundation reports 1,177 proven instances of voter fraud. Judicial Watch found that 900,000 illegal aliens voted in the 2018 midterm election. Moreover, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said the group sued several states such as Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and California. Judicial Watch is a conservative government watchdog group that has gained prominence in uncovering corruption through utilizing the Freedom of Information Act to gain access to documents. In most cases, said Fitton, there were more people were on voter rolls than those who could...

    Glenn Beck has suggested that it would be the “end of the country as we know it” if Donald Trump does not win at the 2020 election because of the rise of radicalism and socialism in the Democratic Party. Speaking to Fox News’s Sean Hannity, the conservative radio host and author said he had discussed the threat posed by the changing face of the party for the past year, which is now being highlighted by the election of Congresswomen such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar, and the support of the Green New Deal. “I said what was coming and...

    Facebook abruptly censored the account of President Trump’s chief social media guru, blocking him for simply responding to a question from a reader. Dan Scavino Jr. said on Facebook that his page was blocked without notice. “AMAZING. WHY ARE YOU STOPPING ME from replying to comments followers have left me - on my own Facebook Page!!?? People have the right to know. Why are you silencing me??? Please LMK! Thanks,” he wrote today. Scavino is responsible for several of the president's and White House's social media accounts. He has been with the president for years. His accounts have a tremendous...

    The next election belongs to Trump. Donald Trump will win the 2020 presidential election. That’s not a prediction. That is a projection based upon history. Beginning with the presidential contest of 1900, the party holding the White House has stood for its second term a total of 12 times. In 11 of those 12 campaigns, the incumbent party has triumphed. That’s about a 92 percent success rate. Those odds must look pretty good to a swashbuckling politician of the Trump stripe. There is a single exception to the two-term incumbent party lock: President Jimmy Carter. The Georgian lost his re-election...

    Apparently his past has undergone a thorough scrubbing. Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke told supporters Sunday that he’s never taken LSD and there’s “nothing” he hasn’t already revealed about his past that could come back to hurt his run for office. MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke told supporters Sunday that he’s never taken LSD and there’s “nothing” he hasn’t already revealed about his past that could come back to hurt his run for office. The former Texas congressman — who has become known for his propensity for using the “f-word” — also promised again to clean...

    APPLETON, Wis. — Voters who supported Barack Obama in 2012 and then Donald Trump in 2016 are sick of Trump, saying in a focus group here that they're getting tired of his "lies" and the way he treats people. Why it matters: Trump barely won Wisconsin, where he got roughly 22,000 more votes than Hillary Clinton, and these swing voters were decisive. If he's losing them, it will be harder to win the state again with just his base supporters. Show less This was the biggest takeaway from the focus group of swing voters I watched last week, conducted by...

    The official launch of former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke’s presidential campaign has been marked by a series of very bad new cycles, briefly interrupted by some quite positive ones. After disappearing for weeks on some sort of Simon and Garfunkle vision quest to explore his own feelings and find the Real America, O’Rourke decided that he was “born to run” for the presidency. And that’s when the oppo research started dropping. Some of it involved things we’d already learned during his Senate campaign, but those were mixed in with brand new and disturbing revelations.But that’s all behind him now....

    President Trump called former Vice President Joe Biden “another low I.Q. individual” for accidentally admitting in a speech on Saturday that he was entering the Democratic presidential race. “Joe Biden got tongue tied over the weekend when he was unable to properly deliver a very simple line about his decision to run for President. Get used to it, another low I.Q. individual!” Trump tweeted Monday. Speaking at a Delaware Democratic Party fundraiser, Biden defended his political stance against critics who say he would be a moderate if he ran among the current crop of Democratic candidates.

    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.

    Bernie Sanders is “the nutty professor”; Elizabeth Warren is “Pocahontas”; Beto O’Rourke’s hand movements are “crazy”. Donald Trump is already taking pot shots at his potential opponents in the 2020 presidential election, evoking memories of his chaotic 2016 campaign with its raucous rallies and taunting tweets. But something will be different this time. The US president is now backed by a Republican party reshaped in his image, a huge war chest and a newly sophisticated political data operation. Whereas some regard him as an accidental president who fluked his way to the White House in 2016, his lieutenants hope that,...

    Jeb Bush believes a Republican should challenge President Trump for the nomination in 2020 — slamming the president's "dangerous" policies on trade and other issues. In the latest salvo between the two former rivals, Bush, who ran unsuccessfully for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016, made the comments Saturday during an interview with ex-Obama adviser David Axelrod. Bush, whose father George. H.W. Bush was the 41st president of the United States and his brother, George W. Bush, was the 43rd, reportedly added that Republican voters should be given more of a choice between different ideologies. "And our country needs to...

    As he had done at several stops in his first campaign trip as a presidential candidate, Beto O’Rourke on Friday climbed atop a counter at a local Iowa business and addressed a small but adoring crowd. People clapped and cheered. Outside, some waited in the cold, hoping to catch a glimpse of him. By that measure, his tour across eastern Iowa last week was largely a success. But by no means was O’Rourke considered a front-runner. And that underscored the challenge he faces as he competes for the 2020 Democratic nomination. O’Rourke, a former three-term U.S. congressman from Texas, became...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden told a Delaware audience Saturday he has the "most progressive" record of any Democrat "running" -- or at least considering a run, as Biden isn't yet officially in the race. The apparent slip-up came during a speech to members of the state's Democratic Party, where he argued that recent criticism he'd received from progressives was unfounded. "I'm told I get criticized by the 'New Left,' " Biden told the audience. "I have the most progressive record of anybody running for the ... anybody who would run."

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand officially entered the ever-growing pool of Democratic presidential hopefuls Sunday, ending the two-month-long exploratory phase of her campaign saying she’s running for the White House to make “big, bold, brave choices.” “Our anthem asks a question, forcing every generation to make a choice,” Gillibrand says in a video released Sunday morning. “Will brave win? Let’s answer for ours." **SNIP** After Sunday’s video announcement, Gillibrand heads to Michigan on Monday for an MSNBC town hall with Chris Hayes; to Iowa on Tuesday and Wednesday; and to Nevada on Thursday. She’ll then cap off...

    DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — As she waited to meet former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper at a recent house party in Dubuque, attorney Connie O’Connor was anxious about the liberal direction of the Democratic presidential primary. “I know a lot of people who don’t want to vote for Donald Trump but don’t necessarily want to vote for the presidential version of Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez,” she said, referring to the recently elected progressive congresswoman from New York. “I think we forget those people are out there.” **SNIP** Yet surveys suggest Democratic voters are less eager to tack left.

    Washington's state Senate passed a bill this week that would drop President Trump from the state's 2020 presidential ballot until he releases his tax returns. The bill, which advanced Tuesday to the state's House of Representatives, according to CBS News, would require any candidate on the ballot for president in the state to release five years of tax returns before appearing in a general or primary election. Senators voted by a 28-21 margin to approve the bill, according to CBS. The state's attorney general and solicitor told lawmakers in a letter this week that the proposal likely was constitutional, but...

    Recently, former Republican governor and failed 2016 candidate Jeb Bush, a vocal critic of then-candidate Donald Trump who has remained so throughout his presidency, urged a Republican to challenge the incumbent Trump in the upcoming election. After implying that President Trump’s ideas aren’t challenging to Democrats, as well as questioning Trump’s conservatism, Bush said he hoped “someone” would run – and quickly caught the attention of the president’s son, Donald Trump Junior. “I personally think it should be Jeb,” suggested Don Jr., noting the “limp exclamation point” in reference to Bush’s “Jeb!” campaign slogan, before asking, “or was the first...

    If ever a single day of fundraising could make or break a candidate’s campaign, it’s this guy this year against this field.Team Beto knew it too. On Thursday morning, when he formally announced his candidacy, his campaign sent an email to supporters declaring, “What we raise in the first 24 hours will set the tone in the national conversation about the viability of our campaign.” That’s correct. If anything could instantly erase doubts about O’Rourke’s viability, a bombshell first-day number could. “The Senate campaign wasn’t a fluke,” people would say. “Those donors didn’t shower him with cash because they...
