  • Progressives Sour at Kamala Harris: ‘The Contempt for the Base Is, Wow’

    Members of the far-left soured at Joe Biden’s (D) selection of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate, expressing disappointment establishment Democrats did not heed the calls of progressives, many of whom supported Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) during the primary race. While Harris attempted to brand herself as a moderate during her presidential campaign, her record proves the label is inaccurate. Despite that, Harris is failing to resonate with many progressive voters, particularly given her controversial prosecutorial record.
  • Why I Want Biden to Lose More than I Want Trump to Win

    As regular readers of my column know, I’m no fan of Donald Trump. And that’s putting it mildly. I don’t like his chronic dishonesty. I don’t like narcissism. I don’t like his nastiness and his silly name-calling. I detest his need to constantly cause chaos, as he did with a recent tweet suggesting we should postpone the 2020 presidential election. There’s nothing about this man’s character that I like. And I hope he wins re-election in a landslide. Actually what I mean is that I hope the Republican candidate beats the Democratic candidate. And I wish the Republican candidate were...

    Vice-Presidential candidate Kamala Harris has apparently unfollowed Joe Biden on Twitter. Kamala Harris is thought to be one of the frontrunners in the race to become Joe Biden's Vice-Presidential candidate. The unfollowing of Biden might be considered a sign that he is leaning in another direction.

    Actress Rosario Dawson said she voted for Bernie Sanders on the same day her boyfriend and former presidential hopeful Sen. Cory Booker endorsed Joe Biden. In an Instagram post on Monday night, the “Men in Black II” actress and activist, who was a surrogate for Sanders in 2016, said she was proud to support the 78-year-old socialist senator from Vermont. “I got to vote for Bernie again and I did,” Dawson wrote in the lengthy post. “Whoever it is that you’re supporting I hope that you are doing it consciously, with heart and with a ballot. Talking about things helps...

    Cardboard cutouts are life size replicas of a person, typically famous, perfect for parties, events, and photoshoots, as Amazon describes for a cardboard cutout of President Trump. As Amazon explains, these cutouts are easy to assemble, stand on their own, won’t break or damage easily and best of all come with a 30-day money back guarantee. Joe Biden is a cardboard cutout candidate. He was easy to assemble. He did no work on his own with his handlers at CNN and MSNBC assembling his candidacy out of the ash heap of the Democrat primaries. Granted Biden’s primary opponents were as...

    Top tech leaders and other billionaires would be forced to hand over billions of dollars in wealth they've gained during the coronavirus pandemic under a new bill introduced by Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y. The "Make Billionaires Pay Act" would impose a one-time 60% tax on wealth gains made by billionaires between March 18, 2020, and Jan. 1, 2021. The funds would be used to pay for out-of-pocket health-care expenses for all Americans for a year. As of Aug. 5, the bill would tax $731 billion in wealth accumulated by 467 billionaires since March...

    **SNIP** In a major upset, activist, nurse, and pastor, Cori Bush won her second attempt to win the Democratic nomination for the 1st Congressional District against 10-term incumbent Rep. William Lacy Clay. Clay is the seventh House incumbent to lose renomination from his own party this cycle, along with Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-IL), Rep. Steve King (R-IA), Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-VA), Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), Rep. Scott Tipton (R-CO), and Rep. Steve Watkins (R-KS), who also lost his primary the night of August 4. Bush is part of a wave of progressive candidates cropping up around the country seeking to...

    Breitbart.com ^ | 2 Aug 2020 | JOEL B. POLLAK
    Democrats are contemplating secession and potential civil war as they game out possible scenarios for a closely contested election, according to a report by Ben Smith in a New York Times column Sunday. The bulk of Smith’s column is devoted to the question of how the media will handle Election Night coverage, given that the result may not be known for weeks. Vote-by-mail, which many states have only recently adopted — ostensibly, to prevent the spread of coronavirus in polling places — could lead to an uncertain result. [...] In one scenario, John Podesta — the former chair of Hillary Clinton’s presidential...

    This "woman of color" thing is just plain gonna lose bigger than the hail Mary Ferarro pick in 1984- all the black women are whako and/or ugly. Newsom is the pretty boy Biden isn't and has won a big time governorship. who can claim success. Biden will still lose but it will set up the party for the next battle. He wins and Newsom becomes the crown prince and POTUS within a year.

    WASHINGTON — It was one of the few issues on which President Barack Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. disagreed — how far to go in limiting the influence of lobbyists in government. The vice president privately complained that his boss’s effort to slam shut the revolving door between K Street and the administration would deprive it of experienced talent, and he bristled when Mr. Obama’s aides tried to block him from hiring a well-connected Washington operator who had lobbied for pharmaceutical and insurance companies, credit agencies and others. Eight years later, that same confidant, Steve Ricchetti, is...

    VIDEO During a little noticed moment at John Lewis' funeral, Bill Clinton thanked Congressman James Clyburn "for with a stroke of a hand" destroyed the campaign of Bernie Sanders. Gee! And I thought such things were supposed to be decided by elections, not the whim of one person. Silly me. And it sure puts some context on almost all the Democrat candidates dropping out of the primary race in unison just before Super Tuesday. Note the gloating chuckle by Clinton at the end of his observation. No reaction yet from Bernie Sanders but it will probably continue to be...

    If Biden wins the White House this November, his administration will be run by a shadow team of radicals bent on warping America's culture to the left. When contemplating who the next president will be, a decent bet is that it will be Joe Biden’s pick for vice president. This is only a little tongue-in-cheek. I’m not sanguine about President Trump’s campaign or Biden’s capabilities.Biden’s front-porch campaign has retreated to his basement, and he does not inspire confidence when he emerges. Even if Biden wins and becomes president, his administration will be run by a shadow president, or, more likely,...

    At least 360 Democrat delegates, mostly Bernie Sanders supporters, have signed a pledge to vote against a Democrat national platform that does not include medicare for all.According to Politico’s delegate tracker, Biden has 2,632 delegates and Sanders currently has 1,076.The Dems are holding a ‘virtual’ DNC in Milwaukee in just three weeks and it looks there may be a repeat of the 2016 convention.In 2016, Bernie supporters booed Hillary Clinton at the convention after WikiLeaks released DNC emails proving the primary was rigged in Hillary’s favor. Bernie was burned again this time around and his supporters and delegates have not...

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Tuesday called for the arrest of violent protesters while taking questions for the first time in 28 days. The former vice president struck a discordant tone with fellow liberals who insist protests against the May killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police are peaceful, and that authorities are to blame for any violence in Portland and other cities. “I think we do need to hold those who violate the law accountable,” Biden said. “We should never let what’s done in a march for equal rights overcome what the reason for the march is. And...

    Biden's promises to the citizens of Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, El Salvador, and the rest of the world stand in stark contrast to what he plans to accomplish for the American worker on Day One, which is nothing. Sunday marks 100 days until the 2020 election. That might come as a surprise to some Americans, who are so used to being neck-deep in conventions, speeches and rallies by now, without them they’d forgotten how close we were. The Republican convention is now cancelled, and for the past few months Joe Biden has barely been seen outside his home, dodging questions from...

    The “unity task forces” assembled by presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his primary competitor and avowed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) recently issued their report. The policy recommendations, released ahead of next month’s Democratic National Convention, speak to how far the party has moved to the left, even under the supposedly “moderate” Biden. On health care, the fact that the task force failed explicitly to endorse a single-payer system does not make its policies much less radical. Compared to the policies of Barack Obama — the man under whom Biden served as vice president, and whom Biden uses...

    Wednesday on CNN International’s “Amanpour,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said if elected, Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden has promised to be “the most progressive president since” Franklin D. Roosevelt. Amanpour said, “So, senator, I think I quote you as saying it, that Biden could be the most progressive president since FDR. If you did say that, it’s pretty dramatic. You’re really going far, far out on a limb there. That means you must support what he’s doing, and, therefore, do you believe that your supporters will vote for him?”

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on Wednesday touted securing the support of half of the Senate Democrats for his amendment to defund the Pentagon by 10 percent and invest in “distressed communities” instead. Sanders’ amendment to cut 10 percent of the Pentagon’s budget to invest in “human needs” gained support from 23 members of the Senate Democrat Caucus — half of the 45 Democrats in the Senate. The support was not enough to get the amendment passed and part of the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act, but was a show of support from Democrats for defunding the military.
