    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) said on Sunday that while some Minneapolis residents felt safer with National Guard troops on city streets after demonstrations over the police-involved death of George Floyd turned violent, others “felt terrorized by the presence of tanks” while protesting. . . . The congresswoman also called for “nationwide reforms” beyond “just getting justice for George Floyd” by charging the other former Minneapolis police officers “who stood by idly” while former officer Derek Chauvin knelt on Floyd’s neck.

    Campaign staff for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden are advertising their donations to a group that pays bail fees in Minneapolis after the city’s police jailed people protesting the killing of a black man by a white police officer. At least 13 Biden campaign staff members posted on Twitter on Friday and Saturday that they made donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which opposes the practice of cash bail, or making people pay to avoid pre-trial imprisonment. The group uses donations to pay bail fees in Minneapolis. Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement to Reuters that the...

    “Cuba Dreading Trump Re-election, says Diplomat;” reads an AFP headline this week. “The re-election of Donald Trump as president of the United States would be "the worst" scenario for Cuba, Havana's top diplomat in charge of relations with Washington told AFP. "If the Republicans win ... it's a very negative scenario," said Carlos Fernandez de Cossio, the foreign ministry's general director for the US. "It would mean at least a continuation of the policy of aggression against our country." Let’s translate “policy of aggression,” as used in Castroite parlance (which is often parroted word for word by the Democrat/Fake News...

    Joe Biden says "The Breakfast Club" host Charlamagne tha God was "baiting" him leading up to his controversial "you ain't black" remark during their interview last week. The presumptive Democratic nominee was pressed Friday by CNN anchor Don Lemon on what kind of "leader" he would be as president for black Americans in the wake of his May 22 comment and, this week, his sentimental response to the tragic death of Minneapolis man George Floyd. "The leader I've always been," Biden told Lemon. "I apologized immediately for responding to Charlamagne, who was baiting me, and if you looked at that...

    "I’ve already said I’m going to pick a Supreme Court justice who is a woman of color," Biden said. "I’ve already said my cabinet will be full of people of women of color. Men and women of color. I also already said that there are women of color under consideration. That is not the only criteria to determine who will be the vice president of the United States of America that I’ll choose as a running mate. It is just beginning the process. I guarantee you, there are more — there’s more than one African American woman being considered for...

    "Real Time" host Bill Maher offered a defense for presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden following his recent "you ain't black" remark amid the uproar sparked from the death of George Floyd. Maher began by knocking the former vice president for making the comment about African-American voters during his interview with "The Breakfast Club" radio host Charlamagne tha God. "I actually must tell you, I hate when people use that sort of phrase, 'If you don't agree with this opinion I have, you ain't this' thing. You ain't a woman, you ain't an American, you ain't a patriot' I'm not for...

    Oddsmakers dropped Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s chances to become the Democratic Party’s vice presidential candidate overnight, with bettors now looking at a 7/1 chance she gets the nod, according to an international online gambling service. . . . Ms. Harris improved slightly as Ms. Klobuchar fell, moving to 6/4 from 6/5 odds. Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren rounds up the top three contenders, according to oddsmakers, with money on her pick currently seeing a slight uptick from 13/2 to 5/1 odds. . . . Overall, bettors still favor President Donald Trump to win re-election, but Mr. Biden’s chances have also improved...

    Communist China poses a greater threat to America and our interests abroad than any other nation in the world. If it wasn’t clear prior to the spread of the Chinese coronavirus, resulting largely from the Chinese Communist Party’s Chernobyl-like response, the subsequent threats should crystallize this point. It has acted malevolently toward the U.S., our European and Anglosphere allies, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and India, and across the South China Sea. Countering the CCP is essential to preserving American life, limb, and liberty. The public deserves to know what presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s approach to China would be.

    CNN contributor Van Jones warned fellow panelists, and Democrats in general, on Tuesday evening that President Donald Trump was helping African-Americans “in real life” and reaching out to them for their vote in 2020. Jones was reacting to the president’s State of the Union address, in which the president mentioned several efforts to help African-Americans specifically: What he was saying to African-Americans can be effective. You may not like it, but he mentioned HBCUs [historically black colleges and universities] — our black colleges have been struggling for a long time, a bunch of them have gone under — he threw...

    It's not the racist white person who is in the Ku Klux Klan that we have to worry about. It's the white liberal Hillary Clinton supporter walking her dog in Central Park who would tell you right now, you know, people like that, 'I don't see race, race is no big deal to me, I see us all as the same, I give to charities,' but the minute she sees a black man who she does not respect or who she has a slight thought against, she weaponized race like she had been trained by the Aryan nation.

    CNN's Chris Cillizza might want to reconsider his Amy Klobuchar hype. It's not too late for a major revision. At 4:34 PM ET on Thursday, CNN's Chris Cillizza had his vice presidential rankings published. It is something Cillizza has done for the past few weeks in which the women that apparent Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden might pick are ranked as to their order of probability of being chosen. For the past few weeks, Senator Amy Klobuchar has settled in at second spot right behind Senator Kamala Harris in first place. However, Cillizza also added a bit of hype for...

    Two days before Super Tuesday, NAACP Minneapolis and Black Lives Matter activists protested Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar's rally before it began over her involvement with the murder conviction of a black teen. Klobuchar canceled the rally. The next day, unable to curry enough support nationwide, she ended her campaign for president, looked into a television camera from Dallas, and told her home state of Minnesota to support former Vice President Joe Biden.

    George Floyd's death in police custody is renewing criticism of Sen. Amy Klobuchar's (D-Minn.) prosecutorial record. Before she became a senator and a top contender for former Vice President Joe Biden's vice presidential spot, Klobuchar spent eight years as the Hennepin County attorney, in charge of prosecution for Minneapolis. And while in that position, Klobuchar declined to prosecute multiple police officers cited for excessive force, including the officer who kneeled on Floyd's neck as he protested, The Guardian reports. Ex-Minneapolis police officer Derick Chauvin saw at least 10 conduct complaints during his 19-year tenure before he was fired Tuesday

    Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) had a better than expected 2020 run. She wasn’t favored to win at all, but her debate performances allowed her to increase her profile among voters and give her that critical cash flow to survive another day. She dropped out, along with former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg earlier this year in a move that many viewed as an effort to get the centrist Democratic bloc around Joe Biden and prevent a replay of the bloody progressive-establishment war back in 2016. So, is Amy veep material? Not anymore. If she was being considered, it all ended...

    In his half-century in national politics, Joe Biden has committed more than his fair share of gaffes. Wednesday, he confused Pearl Harbor Day, Dec. 7, 1941, with D-Day, June 6, 1944. The more serious recent gaffe, a beaut, came at the close of a recent contentious interview with black activist Charlamagne Tha God. A miffed Biden signed off, saying, "If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black." Biden was saying that no self-respecting black American would vote for Trump over him this November. Indeed, any such individual would have been labeled...

    Are media outlets supposed to be openly collaborating with presidential candidates to promote their campaigns? Is that a thing now? It’s not like the news even pretends to be unbiased anymore, but what you’re about to watch seems like something new. ... I’m not a journalist or a lawyer, so I can’t speak to any ethical or legal concerns about the second-biggest newspaper in America openly collaborating with one of the candidates during a presidential campaign. I assume it’s all above board, or WaPo wouldn’t have approved it. If they want to look like they’re directly working for Biden’s campaign,...
