  • Do the Democrats need Hillary or Michelle to enter the race?

    The East Oregonian ^ | October 17, 2019 | Carl Golden
    It began with 25 candidates. It’s been reduced by half, yet concern persists among Democrats that the party should look beyond the still standing contenders and seek an individual capable of party unification and persuade him or her to enter the race. It is an acknowledgement that each of the current candidates is burdened by baggage — ideological or personal — but seem determined to take the contest through a string of expensive, exhausting and bitter primaries. Former Vice President Joe Biden, whose lead has shrunk to single digits or vanished altogether, has been hurt by periodic mental lapses and...
  • Bannon: Democrats May Need To Recruit Bloomberg, Michelle Obama, Or Hillary To Beat Trump In 2020

    Former Trump campaign manager Steve Bannon told FNC's Maria Bartiromo in an interview on "Sunday Morning Futures" that he doesn't think any of the declared Democratic candidates have the ability to beat President Trump in the 2020 election. Bannon suggests that Democrats may have to recruit Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, or Michael Bloomberg to stop Trump from being re-elected. STEVE BANNON: I said this last week, Maria, I don't see anybody on that stage right now that can take President Trump one on one. I pride myself, he's called me his star pupil, his top pupil, I've been studying this...
  • Democrats slap the faithful during LGBTQ town hall

    The New York Post ^ | October 13, 2019 | Miranda Devine
    Anyone wondering why religious people still support Donald Trump, despite his flaws, need only watch a recording of the Democrats’ fanatical LGBTQ town hall last week. From Elizabeth Warren mocking religious males as incapable of finding a wife to Beto O’Rourke’s promise to strip tax benefits from religious institutions, or Cory Booker’s assertion that Catholics use religion to justify discrimination, you see the ugly face of militant secularism and coercion. It is frightening that every one of the nine Democratic candidates who took part in the CNN event has signed up to extreme policies that attack religious liberty and radically...
  • If Elected President, Biden Said He Won't Pardon Trump

    Townhall ^ | October 14, 2019 | Beth Baumann
    Former Vice President Joe Biden told Iowa Radio he would not pardon President Donald Trump if the president is impeached and removed from office. He was making a clear reference to President Gerald Ford pardoning President Richard Nixon once Nixon was impeached. The pardon kept Nixon from being prosecuted for his role in the Watergate scandal. “It wouldn’t unite the country,” Biden said about a potential pardon. “You’d say: ‘Wait a minute. I get a parking ticket and I’ve got to pay it. This happens to me and I’ve got to go to jail. This guy does all these things...
  • Joe Biden on call for Trump-Ukraine probe: 'I'm the reason there is impeachment going on'

    CNN Politics ^ | October 13, 2019 | Sarah Mucha and Eric Bradner
    Altoona, Iowa (CNN)Joe Biden said Sunday that even though he was the last top-tier Democratic candidate to call for President Donald Trump's impeachment, "I'm the reason there is impeachment going on." The former vice president lambasted Trump for asking foreign governments to investigate him and his son Hunter -- despite there being no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of either Biden -- at a forum in Iowa, saying that the President is leading the "most corrupt administration in modern American history." "It's gotten so far now, if you don't move on it, then what do we say to the...
  • Hillary Clinton in 2020? You laughed. Donald Trump didn’t

    The San Francisco Chronicle ^ | October 12, 2019 | Willie Brown
    Many of you dismissed my call for a Hillary Clinton versus Donald Trump rematch as lunacy. “Call me crazy,” I wrote. Some of the more polite responses did. But it definitely caught the attention of Donald Trump. How else to explain his out-of-right-field tweet Tuesday after yours truly wrote that Clinton would make a far stronger 2020 opponent than any of the Democrats now running? “I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren,” the president tweeted. “Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her...
  • Election Was Always Going to Be a Mudfight. If Biden Can't See That, He Should Get Out of the Way.

    Esquire ^ | October 7, 2019 | Charles Pierce
    I am excessively neutral on the subject of Joe Biden as a candidate for president. History would indicate that giving him another shot at it would be rather like handing Joe Hazelwood another supertanker. Nonetheless, considering the alternative, I'd walk through fire to vote for him. However, this piece in The New York Times is a vivid reminder that a) Biden's skills as a campaigner remain dodgy, and b) that he also seems to have lost a step as well. For more than a week, President Trump had been hurling unfounded accusations about Mr. Biden, his son Hunter and their...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 7, 2019 | Eddie Scarry
    Frustrated liberals have been asking for the last four years what it’s going to take for President Trump’s supporters to abandon him. Because, like, don’t they know he’s about to be impeached!? New York Times columnist David Brooks attempted to answer the question last week by imagining a conversation with someone he simply referred to as “Flyover Man,” because apparently he didn’t know a single real Trump supporter. It never seems to occur to liberals that perhaps the real problem isn’t that a lot of people continue supporting the president even though he can be strange, vulgar, and sometimes even...

    The Politico ^ | October 3, 2019 | Michael Calderone
    President Donald Trump’s shocking request Thursday on the White House lawn that not only Ukraine, but also China, should investigate the Bidens, may have shown his open defiance of impeachment threats, but it also gave major air time to the innuendo the president and his allies have been trying to spread about Hunter Biden's links to a company funded by a Chinese investor. While the substance of news reports focused on the brazenness of the president’s publicly calling on foreign governments to investigate a rival, their headlines and chyrons often communicated a simpler message: “Trump: Ukraine & China Should Investigate...

    Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker came to the defense of his 2020 rival former Vice President Joe Biden on Sunday as Biden continues to face unfounded attacks from President Donald Trump. "I've said time and time again that this is unacceptable, that if you come after Joe Biden, you're going to have to deal with me in this case. There is no — as you said — these are baseless, unfounded, scurrilous lies, plain and simple, trying to undermine the character of one of the statesmen of our country, not our party, but our country. And so, yeah, you've got...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden defended his son Hunter, who he said will be part of Biden's campaign for president. "I knew it was going to be this way," Biden said in an interview with the Reno Gazette Journal on Wednesday night after a campaign stop in Reno. Biden said he knew his family would come under attack, but after a sit-down with his five grandchildren three weeks before announcing he was entering the race, he made the decision. "They came to me and said, 'Pop, you got to run.'" When Biden said it would get really mean, his grandchildren...

    Hillary Clinton defended former Vice President Joe Biden against allegations that he has has acted inappropriately by head kissing and touching the backs of women. In a video interview with People Magazine to promote her upcoming book, the former first lady said that the former veep should be judged for the “totality” of his record and that he “is a thoroughly decent human being who has served our country honorably and well for decades.” She said that focusing on the allegations of inappropriate behavior was just a distraction. “We can pick apart anybody. I mean, that’s a great spectator sport,”...
  • Kamala Harris would 'probably not' let her VP's child serve on foreign co. board like Hunter

    The Washington Examiner ^ | September 28, 2019 | Emily Larsen
    Kamala Harris said that as president, she would likely prohibit the son or daughter of her vice president from serving on the board of a foreign energy company, as former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter did for a Ukrainian gas company. "Probably not," the California senator and Democratic presidential hopeful said Saturday when asked whether she would allow her vice president's child to be on the board of a foreign oil company. Impeachment inquiries center in part on President Trump asking Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a July phone call to look into then-Vice President Biden threatening to withhold...

    CNBC ^ | September 26, 2019 | Brian Schwartz
    Democratic donors on Wall Street and in big business are preparing to sit out the presidential campaign fundraising cycle — or even back President Donald Trump — if Sen. Elizabeth Warren wins the party’s nomination. In recent weeks, CNBC spoke to several high-dollar Democratic donors and fundraisers in the business community and found that this opinion was becoming widely shared as Warren, an outspoken critic of big banks and corporations, gains momentum against Joe Biden in the 2020 race. “You’re in a box because you’re a Democrat and you’re thinking, ‘I want to help the party, but she’s going to...
  • 2017: Joe Biden Recounts Nearly Wrapping a Chain Around a Gang Leader Named Corn Pop’s Head

    Breitbart ^ | September 15, 2019 | Haris Alic
    Joe Biden told a harrowing story during an event in 2017 about facing down a razor-wielding gang leader named Corn Pop in his youth by threatening to “wrap” a chain around the man’s head. The incident came back into the spotlight over the weekend when footage of Biden’s remarks began circulating social media. The former vice president, who has come under scrutiny in recent weeks for embellishing portions of his personal and political life, told the story when being honored with having a community pool named after him in a Wilmington, Delaware, historically black neighborhood. Biden had reportedly been the...

    The New York Post ^ | September. 13. 2019 | Michael Goodwin
    And the winner is … Donald Trump. The Democrats’ third presidential debate was a long-winded, platitude-filled disaster where no single candidate could claim a clear victory. Instead, the seven men and three women took turns displaying why they are all probably unelectable. Start with Joe Biden’s incoherence. The nominal front-runner, the former vice president had a 40-year reputation for never shutting up. Now he can’t manage to finish a sentence without interrupting himself. Nearly all his efforts to make a point were swamped by a sudden change of direction mid-sentence, and then another change a few words later as a...

    The Hollywood Reporter ^ | September 5, 2019 | Jeremy Barr
    Democratic presidential hopefuls are hitting up potential donors after their participation in the seven-hour-long event. After participating in CNN's 10-candidate, seven-hour-long climate town-hall extravaganza on Wednesday night, some of the leading candidates for president are using the event to pitch potential donors. The Bernie Sanders campaign blasted a fundraising request pegged to the network's event on Thursday morning. "Last night I joined 9 other Democratic presidential candidates at CNN's Climate Town Hall, and there is no question that our Green New Deal plan to address the climate emergency is the most ambitious plan of anyone else in this race," the...

    The Daily Wire ^ | September 6, 2019 | Paul Bois
    Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore may be lacking general political acumen, but perhaps he at least knows how to give a fairly accurate prognosis of events to come when it comes to Democratic politics. On Thursday, he issued Democrats a dire warning: Nominate former Vice President Joe Biden and risk alienating progressive voters come 2020. Writing a lengthy Twitter post, Moore first attacked Biden for attending a fundraiser hosted by Andrew Goldman, the founder of the natural gas company Western LNG, and argued that the former vice president is far too similar to Hillary Clinton. "Last night on CNN, a student...

    Fox News ^ | August 31, 2019 | Adam Shaw
    Former Vice President Joe Biden, the current frontrunner in the 2020 Democratic race, has been hit by a new wave of gaffes and errors over just a few days – something that President Trump and his reelection campaign are increasingly pointing to as a problem for the potential White House rival. Biden was hit by a Washington Post report this week that found that a moving military story – which the former senator called “God’s truth” – was not true. The story was an emotional account of Biden's decision to travel to Afghanistan, despite concerns about visiting a war-torn area,...

    Pete Buttigieg has tapped into the New York fundraising scene better than any other 2020 Democratic candidate — and he’ll be back this Labor Day weekend to rake in more big bucks. The South Bend, Indiana, mayor already brought in $3.7 million from New York state — including $2.9 million just from New York City, according to donor data provided by the Center for Public Integrity and analyzed by The Post. He bests all other Democratic White House hopefuls in the Big Apple — by a landslide — including New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who raised $885,000 in...
