  • Senator Amy Klobuchar Refuses To Condemn Late-Term Abortion On ‘The View’

    When Senator Amy Klobuchar made a stop on “The View” Friday as part of her campaign for the 2020 Democratic nomination, she joined the ranks of many other extreme pro-abortion Democratic leaders who are in favor of late-term abortion. When co-host Meghan McCain asked Klobuchar if she was in support of late-term abortion and Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s comments on infanticide, the senator dodged the question, only commenting that she is for women having the right to make a choice for their own bodies. Co-host Joy Behar helped run interference for Klobuchar, shouting down McCain for bringing up a topic...
  • Trump raises more money from women than all his Democratic women challengers ... put together

    As Democrats cobble on about their chances of beating President Trump, and backslap with one another about how 'beatable' the man is, here's some news to give them indigestion from Lauren DeBellis Appell at Real Clear Politics: The Center for Responsive Politics, which uses Federal Election Commission data, found that during the first three months of 2019 the number of women who donated to President Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign topped the number of women who donated to any Democratic candidate running for president, accounting for more than 45 percent of all individual donations. That means President Trump had more female...
  • Washington Post: U.S. WWII Heroes Were Evil Because They Were ‘Racists’

    The Washington Post is discounting America’s win in World War Two because American forces were all “racists.” I guess that we now have to delete America’s part in World War Two from the history books to suit liberal sensibilities just like we are erasing statues to military people all across the nation. The attack on the Allied Forces in WWII came in an idiotic liberal article with the unwieldy title of, “Allied leaders were anti-Nazi, but not anti-racist. We’re now paying the price for their failure.” The article by a foaming-at-the-mouth lib named John Broich — who claims to be...
  • If Democratic men really want a woman president, why not drop out?

    Sometimes it’s hard to be a woman. Other times, the nice men running for president pat you on the head and tell you that one day you might get to play second fiddle to their greatness. In a time of extreme wokeness, a bunch of men, mostly white men, populate the top tier of Democratic presidential candidates, and all of them are embarrassed about it. The men are aware that, like leopard print paired with stripes, they’re out this season — so they’re promising to accessorize with the fairer sex.

    More women donated to President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign than any of the Democratic 2020 presidential candidates, according to FEC data. 10,375 women have donated to Trump in the first quarter of 2019, more than double the nearest Democratic challenger. California Sen. Kamala Harris had the second highest number of female donors with 3,850. Trump’s average donation per woman donor is also much lower than his top female opponents. New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s average donation was $1,321, and Sen. Harris’s average was $935 per woman respectively, while Trump’s donors average out to $141. The data, compiled by the Center...
  • Amy Klobuchar credits Obama, not Trump, for booming economy

    Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Minnesota Democrat, refused Sunday to credit President Trump for the booming economy, insisting that former President Barack Obama deserves a pat on the back after Friday’s jobs report showed the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years. The Democratic presidential primary contender pointed to American workers, businesses and Mr. Obama when asked about the sunny economic figures, including rising wages, 260,000 new jobs, and a 3.6 percent unemployment rate, the lowest since 1969. “You know what I’m thinking about, I’m thinking about when we were in that downturn, and President Obama came into office and he had to...

    Democratic Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Cory Booker both argued during Sunday interviews that former President Barack Obama deserves the credit for a good economy under President Donald Trump. The U.S. Labor Department announced Wednesday that the unemployment rate had hit 3.6%, the lowest rate since 1969. The report did note that 490,000 people left the workforce, but the gain was due in part to an increase in hiring in professional and business services, along with construction and healthcare jobs. (RELATED: Jessie Jane: GDP Growth Shows The Trump Economy Is A Serious Problem For Democrats) Despite those gains, the pair decided...

    After addressing a few of the other stories of the day — from “Game of Thrones” to the Kentucky Derby — Opera Man turned to politics. “Kamala, Gillibrand, Klobuchar, Warren,” he sang. “They have slim chance-o, they no wear pants-o.” “Cory, Pete and Beto, will have to wait-o … here we go again! 70-year-old men,” he ended with an image showing Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden. He then focused in on Biden and recent complaints about him respecting peoples’ personal space, singing, “gropa, gropa, sniffa, sniffa, young or old-a, makes no diffa.” The actor...

    Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar (MN) discussed election security with Jake Tapper on CNN's "State of the Union." According to Klobuchar, President Donald Trump is not serious about protecting future elections from foreign interference. "Are you suggesting Trump wants foreign election interference in 2020?" Tapper asked."First of all, we've had ample evidence that he has not been responding to protect our election security. And you know what? Russia, they didn't use a tank, they didn't use a missile, but they used a computer, and they invaded our democracy all the same," Klobuchar replied. "In the past, he's the word 'meddled.' Well,...

    Is a woman a shoo-in to win the Democratic nomination and take on President Trump in 2020? Some women in three states that could make or break White House hopes aren't so sure. “I want to be for a woman, but it’s just hard when you see a lot of other people not supporting women yet. I feel that America’s just not there yet,” Wendy McVey, a 20-year-old junior at Iowa State University, told The Associated Press. At the moment, the candidate McVey is most interested in is former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke. Women are among the Democratic Party’s most...

    “Overwhelming” is the only word which properly describes the growing list of 2020 Presidential candidates vying to unseat Donald Trump. To date, there are the officially declared, the yet to declare, and a handful of teetering outliers. The outliers aren’t in the running per se, but in the event no Democrat is able to garner the party nomination, one of them might be persuaded to step up to the podium. The Declared Candidates:Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Robert O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, Corey Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Andrew Yang, Julian Castro, Kirsten Gillibrand, Jay Inslee, Tulsi Gabbard, John Hickenlooper, John Delaney,...

    WASHINGTON (CNN)Two new polls from the states that will be the first to weigh in on the Democratic field next year show former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders continue to stand ahead of the rest of the field, and provide the best evidence yet that the small group of candidates standing just behind those two includes South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. A Monmouth University poll of likely Democratic caucusgoers in Iowa, out Thursday, finds Biden at the top of the pack with 27% support, Sanders at 16%, Buttigieg at 9%, Sens. Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren at...

    “That’s a decision for the vice president to make,” Sen. Bernie Sanders said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” when asked if the allegation disqualifies Biden. “I’m not sure that one incident alone disqualifies anybody.” One of the leading women in the Dem race, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, came down on the other side. “I read the op-ed last night,” Warren said in Iowa on Saturday. “I believe Lucy Flores. And Joe Biden needs to give an answer.” John Hickenlooper — the former governor of Colorado who recently jumped in the race — called Biden’s actions “very disconcerting.” “Certainly, I think it’s...

    Democratic presidential contender Amy Klobuchar said she had 'no reason' not to believe Joe Biden's accuser while Sen. Bernie Sanders said the incident doesn't disqualify the former vice president from running in 2020. 'I have not read her interview, but I know the vice president addressed it there in that statement and he will continue to address it if he decides to get into this race,' Klobuchar said of Lucy Flores' accusation. 'I have no reason not to believe her,' she noted on ABC's 'This Week.' **SNIP** 'I'm not sure that one incident alone disqualifies anybody, but her point is...

    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s blackface scandal has largely dropped from public view, and one Democratic presidential hopeful says it’s time to move on. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Minnesota Democrat, said Sunday that “we have to move on” after being asked about Mr. Northam in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” **SNIP** “If we spend our whole time, Chuck, talking about what men did wrong, we are never going to talk about what women can do right, including running for president and winning,” she said. After Mr. Todd said that the Northam situation wasn’t a “great picture” for Democrats, Ms. Klobuchar...

    American Spectator ^ | March 22, 2019 | Robert Stacy McCain
    Four years ago, Democrats were gearing up for a pre-determined outcome, the anointing of Hillary Clinton as the party’s presidential candidate. Convinced they were “on the right side of history,” Democrats believed Hillary was destined to succeed Barack Obama, America’s first black president, by becoming our first female president. The only real opposition to Mrs. Clinton’s nomination came from Bernie Sanders, the socialist senator from Vermont who had never previously identified as a Democrat. The weakness of Hillary’s candidacy was exposed in the 2016 primary campaign, when Bernie and his wild-eyed supporters very nearly derailed her nomination, being foiled by...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The Democrat presidential nomination battle is already a three-ring circus, and the far left elements of the Democrat base are going to make sure it stays that way. Yesterday, ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, who is struggling to gain a foothold in the race, found himself in trouble with the social justice warrior crowd when his effort to imply that a woman may well win the nominating contest fell flat with the humorless left. The first mistake Hickenlooper made was accepting CNN’s invitation to get a little (very little, given CNN’s dwindling audience)...
