    With all the rancor in politics these days, the CNN/New York Times Democratic debate on Tuesday night delivered a rare moment of comity: Twelve Democrats agreed, apparently without compensation, to appear in a Donald Trump ad. Other points on which the Democrats came together in peace and harmony: -- Trump should be impeached. -- Abortion is great. -- Obamacare sucks. At least we’re all finally agreed on Obamacare! Obamacare has given us a system -- to quote Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont -- “which is dysfunctional, which is cruel, 87 million uninsured, 30,000 people dying every single year, 500,000 people...

    Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) demonstrated a shocking level of ignorance when she recently described having held an AR-15 (video below). "I don't know what else it takes but I don't believe we can stop at the door of the United States House,” Jackson Lee told reporters in the Capitol building. “I believe there will have to be an emergence of members of the House flooding the United States Senate for Senator McConnell to understand that these initiatives today, my gun storage bill, my bill that I've introduced dealing with the caliber weapon, I've held an...

    Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) on Tuesday said the Trump administration should declare racist beliefs a threat to U.S. national security. During a hearing of the House Homeland Security Committee, Jackson Lee said that the attack in her home state of Texas last week displayed the danger of ignoring U.S. residents who foster white supremacist views. "I believe that racism ... should be declared a national security threat," Jackson Lee said. "Racism is a national security threat. Before, we would say, 'you have a right to your racist views. You have a right to believe that slavery was right. That...

    DES MOINES — A Democratic presidential field that has struggled to precisely define its general election indictment of Donald Trump appears finally to have found it. In the wake of mass shootings in Ohio and Texas — the latter of which was tied to a suspect whose anti-immigrant sentiments led to the killing of 22 people — candidates are road-testing a withering argument that draws a direct line between gun violence and the president’s racist rhetoric. “We are living with a toxic brew of two different things, each of which is claiming lives and each of which represents a national...

    Democrats are panicking. In the wake of his many gaffes and shaky debate performances, many view front-runner Joe Biden as unable to go the distance, and unlikely to beat Donald Trump if he succeeds in winning the Democratic nomination. Which of the more than 20 other candidates in the race would be a better bet, they wonder? This is where the angst sets in. Elizabeth Warren is too radical, Bernie Sanders too angry, Beto too absurd, Mayor Pete too young, Cory Booker too annoying, which leaves….Kamala Harris. She’s tough, she can debate, as a woman of color she checks numerous...

    Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke peddled misleading statements about Donald Trump’s so-called “Muslim ban” and remarked the unrest in Charlottesville, Virginia on CNN's “State of the Union."Host Jake Tapper failed to challenge Beto on his statements.Tapper started the segment by asking O’Rourke about his assessment a week ago, where he labeled the president a “white nationalist,” adding, “I just wonder, sir, President Trump won your home state of Texas by nine points, almost 63 million Americans voted for him, do you think it is racist to vote for President Trump in 2020?”

    One of the individuals named by the Texas Democrat estimates that the lawmaker's actions have spurred donors to give more than $1 million toward Trump's reelection effort in recent days. R. H. Bowman told the Washington Examiner his fellow members of "Texas 44," as the San Antonio-based donors refer to themselves, have been on a fundraising frenzy since Castro tweeted about them on Monday.

    MSN News ^ | August 1, 2019 | Albert Hunt, The Hill
    Joe Biden survived the second round of Democratic presidential debates, but it became more apparent that over half the 22-person field is irrelevant and should get out, the sooner the better. The former vice president was repeatedly under attack on health care, criminal justice, immigration and abortion. He stumbled sometimes, but overall was sharper than his mediocre performance in the first debate a month ago. This won't assuage fears of mainstream Democrats that the 76-year-old Biden may not be up to the challenge of a protracted primary fight and bitter battle against Donald Trump. Still he was sufficiently engaged to...

    A coalition of women’s groups is attacking CNN for failing to select a single woman of color to moderate the Democratic debates. “We have the most diverse pool of presidential candidates in our country’s history including the third black woman to seek the Democratic nomination, yet the debate stage has left out an important voice at the moderator’s table,” said Glynda C. Carr, president of Higher Heights for America, an organization dedicated to putting black women in positions of political power. California Sen. Kamala Harris follows black woman predecessors Shirley Chisholm — who was the first woman of color to...

    It has been less than three months since Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D-Ind.) and his fans were celebrating him being on the cover of Time magazine just two weeks after he was New York Magazine's flattering cover story. He followed that up with a fundraising win for the second quarter but things have been a bit quiet around him recently. Political fortunes are notoriously fickle but even more so in a presidential primary that features an unprecedented number of candidates. While Mayor Pete is by no means out of this race his polling numbers haven't followed his big cash haul and...

    Joe Biden said the White House under President Barack Obama, when Biden was vice president, did not do enough to address the concerns of white working-class voters in the Rust Belt. "A lot of people were left behind," the 2020 Democratic candidate told the New York Times when discussing the post-recession economic recovery. "In areas where people were hard hit, I don't think we paid enough attention to their plight." Biden, 76, tried chalking up the disillusionment of white former Democratic voters to a messaging problem, saying Obama told him he didn't want to take "a victory lap [because] we...

Sanders took to Twitter Friday afternoon and wrote “Abolish the Electoral College” in response to an NBC News analysis that theorized that President Trump could win the presidential election in 2020 and lose the popular vote by five million

    It’s genuinely tragic, but July 4th has come to signify the death of common culture within America. While most red-blooded Americans were celebrating the birth of the greatest country in the world, the left was singing an entirely different tune. Anyone active on social media undoubtedly witnessed the screeds of social justice warriors attempting to justify their hatred of all things red, white, and blue. And while those unhinged rants could be dismissed as the ravings of liberal lunatics, the far left wasn’t alone in its anti-American sentiments. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a freshman Democratic Congresswoman and hero of the progressive left,...

    Empty wallets might finally do to the crowd of Democrat 2020 presidential challengers what national disinterest could not. New financial disclosures show that 11 liberal contenders for the Oval Office are operating their campaigns at a deficit, having spent more money than campaign donations could support. Eight more have less than $1 million on hand. More than five months from 2020, only the front-runners have the financial means to go much further. “This is the doomsday scenario for a lot of campaigns, where they’re grasping for air to keep their campaigns alive and to live another day,” said Washington Democrat...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) believes that “writing a check” to the descendants of slaves is not “going to be enough” when it comes to reparations. In an interview with Jemele Hill’s podcast that was released on Monday evening, Hill, playing a game of “for or against,” asked Harris if she was “for or against” reparations. Harris answered: “complicated.” Hill, who interviewed Harris during Essence Fest in New Orleans, told her “that wasn’t one of the choices.” The presidential candidate then elaborated, saying she supports Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s (D-TX) commission to study reparations. “We need to address how we’re going...

    A California poll of Democrat primary voters in the state has Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) surging past favorite daughter Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and former Vice President Joe Biden in the Golden State ahead of the second debates upcoming at the end of July.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden's support in the latest Hill-HarrisX poll of Democratic voters has fallen below 30 percent, his lowest mark in the survey so far. The poll, released on Monday, found that 29 percent of likely Democratic primary voters support Biden as their first choice for president, while 16 percent back Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). This marks a 4-point drop for Biden from an identical poll conducted two weeks ago and immediately following the first 2020 Democratic debates. It also represents a 17-point drop from when same poll was first conducted in May, a month after Biden formally...
