    BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — One of the four Vermont Democrats seeking the party nomination to run for governor in the fall election isn’t old enough to vote, let alone drive. Ethan Sonneborn, 14, of Bristol, met the requirements to be on the primary ballot and is taking his place with the state’s more age-appropriate candidates on the Tuesday primary ballot, to say nothing of numerous candidate forums and debates. “I think Vermonters should take me seriously because I have practical progressive ideas, and I happen to be 14, not the other way around,” Sonneborn said in a recent televised gubernatorial...

    After Ben Shapiro invited Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to appear on his show for a discussion, she falsely equated his invitation with “catcalling” Conservative Ben Shapiro said he would give $10,000 to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign or favorite charity if she appeared on his show for a discussion.She responded with the following tweet:“Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions. And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one.”Shapiro responded to that by saying, among other things:“Have you met me? Have you seen me? Do I seem like the kind of guy...

    The Democrats Don’t Have a Foreign Policy, They Have A Trump Policy Not just treasonous, stupid. May 10, 2018 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. Quick, what’s the Dem position on Syria? What about China? Don’t bother. There was once a time when Democrats could discuss Syria, North Korea, the South China Sea, economic tensions in the European Union and the future of Africa. But that was before Trump. Democrats don’t have a foreign policy anymore. They have a Trump...

Doug Chin’s 28,284, a 39 percent to 25 percent lead, with most of the votes counted late last tonight.

    Training camp for child terrorists has chilling connection to top Democratic Party operative. Siraj Ibn Wahhaj Jr., 40, of Clayton County, Georgia, was arrested along with his two sisters and two other adults last Friday in New Mexico on charges of felony child abuse ... But there is more to this story that is not appearing in the nightly news accounts we've all been following. Nobody is talking about Wahhaj's well-connected father, Siraj Wahhaj Sr., a radical Brooklyn imam who is the spiritual adviser to Democratic Socialist and Bernie Sanders supporter Linda Sarsour. The elder Wahhaj also has ties to...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is fun. No, I mean that in all sincerity; she’s a fun candidate. She’s now one of the faces of the emerging left wing of the Democratic Party. Some have even called her the future of the Democratic Party. Maybe they should slow their roll on her, but hey—a Democratic implosion of rising talent is always a fun show to watch. She’s feisty. She has her moments, but when it comes to the policy discussion for her television hits, she veers into rocky shoals. casio-Cortez is clueless on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, playing whack-a-mole concerning whether there should be...

    Local officials are investigating after a Michigan county ran short on ballots after a historic voter turnout for a spate of elections on Tuesday, The Detroit Free Press reported. The news outlet reported Wednesday that 34 percent of voters attempted to cast a ballot in a host of state, local and national elections on the ballot in Oakland County. That number was five percentage points higher than area officials were expecting. Officials attributed the shortage to a confluence of factors, including two open Congressional seats to replace Reps. David Trott (R) and Sander Levin (D). Oakland County Clerk Lisa Brown...

    CONCORD, N.H. – Former President Bill Clinton’s name no longer adorns the Democratic Party’s major fall fundraising dinner in the state that made him “the comeback kid” and launched him on the road to the White House. The New Hampshire state party announced Tuesday that their annual Kennedy-Clinton Dinner will now be known as the Eleanor Roosevelt Dinner, in honor of the famous first lady who went on to serve as the first U.S. delegate to the United Nations.

August 3, 2018 Ari Lieberman    In 2010, Britain’s current Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, hosted an event which facilitated a tour for a shadowy group called the “International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network.” The entire event was predicated on Holocaust revisionism and revolting comparisons between Israel and the Nazis. During the course of the event, one of the speakers likened Israel’s defensive measures in the Gaza Strip to the Nazi treatment of Jews in...

    Joe Biden is leading the Democratic field in some early polls asking voters about the party’s prospective presidential candidates in 2020. But in his old stomping grounds in the U.S. Senate, there are plenty of skeptics who point to the former vice president’s age, his support for the Iraq War and his two failed presidential bids as reasons to doubt he would be successful. “It’s hard to see someone [winning] who voted for the Iraq war. People are looking to turn the page,” one senior Democratic aide said. A second senior Democratic aide said “polls show that voters want someone...

    Well, that escalated quickly. The rise of “democratic socialism” has been one of the key developments in the Democratic Party in recent years, first with the popularity of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and more recently Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s primary win over party mainstay Rep. Joe Crowley in New York. One of the ways the movement is presented is with the claim that this is not your grandfather’s socialism -- or the socialism of the former Soviet Union, Venezuela or other failed states. It’s more “Scandinavian health care” than overthrowing the bourgeoisie. But now a democratic socialist writer is leveling with voters,...

    This week marks Andrea Mitchell’s 40th anniversary at NBC News, and the network has been filled with tributes to her. But when it comes to gushing, it will be hard to top Willie Geist’s effort, which aired during Mitchell’s MSNBC show today: “You are one of a very small handful of icons in our business, about whom a young journalist thinks: I can’t even believe I work in the same news division where she works. It always has been a privilege, and that awe has never gone away.” The tribute ended with a still shot of Mitchell warmly holding hands...

    On her 12 p.m. ET hour show on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell was worried that the clear Democratic affiliation and left-wing activism of the shooter who attacked members of Congress was going to be “swept up” in coverage of the violence and exploited by “partisans.” She acknowledged that alleged shooter James T. Hodgkinson “was a volunteer in [Bernie] Sanders’ campaign” and that “within his mental condition, there was, at least he felt, some sort of political motivation, as horrible as that is to even address.” Correspondent Garrett Haake – reporting from the scene of the attack in Alexandria, Virginia...

Her popularity is so gangbusters, she won a primary race in June in a New York congressional district she wasn’t even running in as a write-in candidate, according to the New York Daily News. Well, surprise surprise, her popularity extends all the way to the West Coast. Ocasio-Cortez has two fundraisers planned Tuesday in San Francisco’s Mission District, and both have sold out. One even sold out twice.
