    Joe Biden's 2020 presidential campaign has hired MSNBC political analyst and MoveOn chief public affairs officer Karine Jean-Pierre as a senior adviser. "I am thrilled to announce that I will be joining the Biden campaign as a Senior Adviser. This is the most important general election in generations and I just could not sit this election out. I look forward to doing this work with @JoeBiden and the team!," Jean-Pierre wrote on Twitter announcing the move. SNIP
  • Stacey Abrams is the Democrats’ Sarah Palin

    The Washington Post ^ | May 19, 2020 | Marc A. Thiessen
    Stacey Abrams is running a less-than-subtle campaign to be Joe Biden’s vice-presidential running mate. Republicans should hope she succeeds. If selected, she would displace Sarah Palin as the least-qualified person ever to serve on a major-party ticket. Biden should understand this, because he saw firsthand how much damage Palin’s selection did to then-Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the Republican presidential nominee in 2008. Preelection polls showed that 6 out of 10 Americans said Palin was not qualified for the job, and a Stanford University study found that she cost McCain more than 2 million votes.
  • Joy Behar rejects 'believe all women' motto, prompting Meghan McCain to bring up Kavanaugh saga

    "The View" co-host Joy Behar panned the idea that the media should "believe all women" who allege sexual misconduct and denied applying a different standard to Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh. "To me, if you say I believe any woman who makes any accusation -- if you say that, I think it minimizes our credibility as women, and then nobody's going to believe anybody at some point," Behar said. The co-hosts were discussing former NBC host Matt Lauer's full-throated attack on Ronan Farrow's reporting, which cited a woman accusing the former "Today" star of rape. That prompted Behar to...
  • Journalists Attack Trump Campaign For Satire ‘Truth Over Facts’ Website, Forgetting That It’s A Biden Gaffe

    Journalists missed a reference to a Biden gaffe Monday after the Trump campaign launched a new website titled “Truth Over Facts.” President Donald Trump’s campaign launched what appears to be a joke website they described as “an investigative website aimed at uncovering the truth behind [former Vice President] Joe Biden’s never-ending, seemingly incomprehensible statements during his third, plodding campaign for president.” The “Truth Over Facts” title is, in fact, a reference to one of Biden’s public gaffes, where he made the comment during a 2019 campaign speech in Iowa. This seemed to go over many journalists’ heads as they attacked...

    Since 2013, Chinese companies have been allowed to participate in U.S. stock and bond exchanges without having to fully comply with the same Sarbanes-Oxley Act accounting practices and risk disclosure required of American companies. The concession was made in a little-noticed Memorandum of Understanding executed seven years ago by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCOAB), a nonprofit regulator empowered by the Sarbanes-Oxley law to ensure U.S. investors are protected from making bad investments because of faulty audits or financial information. The agreement was reached in May 2013 after Chinese leaders pleaded for improved access to American capital markets in...

  • Did Hillary’s rigging at the DNC push Biden out of the race?

    NY Post ^ | November 2, 2017 | John Podhoretz
    The stunning revelation by longtime operative Donna Brazile that the Hillary Clinton campaign secretly took control — literal control — of the Democratic National Committee a year before Hillary became the party’s nominee is the talk of American politics. As it should be. Brazile’s piece in Politico describes her shock at the discovery of formal legal paperwork between the two entities when she took the reins at the DNC in August 2016. Brazile had been tapped for the job when DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced to resign. Leaked e-mails had shown how Schultz had been putting her finger...

    In her new book Hacks, Donna Brazile — the former interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman — alleges that Hillary Clinton “rigged the [party’s] nomination process” against populist candidate Bernie Sanders in the 2016 primaries. “I had found my proof [of rigging] and it broke my heart,” wrote Brazile in an exerpt of her book published by Politico Magazine today. The said rigging, according to Brazile, was discovered in an agreement and explained as follows: “The agreement—signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC, and Robby Mook [Clinton campaign manager] with a copy to Marc Elias—specified that in exchange...

    Observer Politics ^ | October 10, 2016 | Michael Sainato
    On October 10, Wikileaks released part two of their emails from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta. Friday, Wikileaks released their first batch of Podesta’s emails, which included excerpts from Clinton’s Wall Street transcripts that reaffirmed why Clinton refused to release them in full. During the second presidential debate, Clinton confirmed their authenticity by attempting to defend one statement she made in the speech about having a public and private stance on political issues. She cited Abraham Lincoln, a defense comparable to her ridiculous invocation of 9/11 when pressed on her ties to Wall Street during a Democratic primary debate. The...
  • Biden says he would revoke permit for Keystone pipeline

    If completed, the pipeline, which has spent the past decade in political and legal limbo, would help carry some 830,000 barrels of crude oil a day from Canada to refineries in Texas. Although Biden’s climate plan was more ambitious than anything proposed by Obama, it attracted criticism from liberals who faulted Biden for not pledging to ban fracking and for attending a fundraiser co-hosted by a co-founder of a natural gas company. Beyond that, Biden’s environmental critics worry he will not try to rein in greenhouse gas emissions as aggressively as climate scientists say is necessary. In 2018, a panel...

    The Washington Free Beacon analytics bureau used a proprietary algorithm to program a bot to read 1,000 Jennifer Rubin columns and write its very own Jennifer Rubin column based on its analysis. This was the result: Biden is right. Trump's disaster gambit lacks competence. By Jennifer Rubin President Trump tweeted rage on Wednesday, the worst in history. To compare with decent man Joe Biden, the difference is leadership courage. Trump possesses the bad qualities without precedent, said the expert. The expert is also a victim of Trump because he is an elite nonwhite immigrant. That's why Trump invented birtherism, a...

In his analysis, he said, “On the national front, presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden received a 52% favorable/40% unfavorable rating. What's worrisome for Biden is he did not receive a majority favorable rating from younger voters aged 18-29 (45% favorable/47% unfavorable), white voters (48% favorable/45% unfavorable), suburban voters (48% favorable/45% unfavorable) and suburban women (49% favorable/42% unfavorable).”...

    KYIV. May 12 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Former Prosecutor General Viktor Shokhin has appealed to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as the guarantor of the Constitution with a request to ensure the response of law enforcement agencies to allegations of unlawful acts by former U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden. At the Interfax-Ukraine agency's press conference on Tuesday, Shokin's lawyer Oleksandr Teleshetsky noted that the State Bureau of Investigations (SBI) and the Prosecutor General's Office (PGO) have not complied with a number of court decisions on the registration and investigation of the crimes that Shokin alleges. Teleshetsky said more than three months passed after...

    Last week, CBS News senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge broke a huge national story: Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell had declassified an “unmasking list” of people around President Obama who had requested intelligence on a member of the incoming Trump administration. Among the people on the list were UN Ambassador Samantha Power, White House Chief of Staff Dennis McDonough and then Vice President Joe Biden. There were sixteen in total. “Unmasking” allowed those 16 to read an unredacted transcript of a phone call or phone calls between incoming Trump DNI Michael Flynn and then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

    “Regarding the incident, he said it didn’t happen, but if there are future records that are unresolved that refute that, then he is going to have to do damage control, and suburban women are not the kind of demographic that you want to do damage control on.” Ms. Reade said she was working as a junior Senate staffer for Mr. Biden in the early 1990s when he pinned her against a wall in the basement of the Capitol complex, shoved his hand up her skirt and penetrated her with his fingers.

    State Department Inspector General and Deep State hack Steve Linick was fired on Friday night. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo fired the anti-Trump Obama holdover. Linick served as State Department IG since 2013 Linick played a role in the faux impeachment of President Trump over Ukraine. Linick requested an urgent meeting with Congressional Democrat staffers. During the meeting Linick handed over documents related to the Trump administration and Ukraine. The entire impeachment was a scam to divert attention away from the Biden Crime Family and Hunter Biden’s pay-for-play with Burisma Holdings. Linick was an anti-Trump hack who should have been...
