Democrats nudge Beto O´Rourke
toward 2020 presidential bid after
closer-than-expected loss in Texas

CNN, by Eric Bradner

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 11/8/2018 11:32:19 PM

Rep. Beto O´Rourke´s closer-than-expected loss Tuesday has fueled optimism among his friends and allies -- as well as Democratic admirers across the country -- that he will run for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. (Snip) Another source described having "very initial discussions" with O´Rourke in recent weeks about the prospect of a 2020 bid and what it would take to scale a Senate campaign that operated largely on the candidate´s own gut, without pollsters or a massive team of consultants, up to the national level. But the source said it´s too early for O´Rourke to have made any decisions.

Comments:
I bet Trump is cheering on the push for BETO.

Gotta admit, he´s a natural.
And honestly, the last drunk driving, lying, Dem Irishman got really pretty close too, back in 1979.
Since O´Rourke hasn´t actually killed a woman yet, (as far as we know), he might even do better than Kennedy.
And, he has all that LaSalle Partners Real Estate money behind him, so he´ll be able to buy a lot of Dem votes.
The Dems are nothing if not predictable. Crazy insane....and predictable.

Ran his campaign on gut feeling without pollsters or a team of consultants? Sure he did and with mucho dinero from the celebrity crowd. BTW, Beto will prob need a translator for that last sentence. Having never won a statewide race, the Presidency would be quite a leap for a former 3 term congressman.

If Americans could elect the saboteur-con-man Obama, they can elect any "Mr. Cool." And here´s a dandy idea:
why not pair Beto up with Occasional-Cortex as VP?
Two "truly qualified" leaders of a nation in which critical judgment has nearly disappeared and where a hack reporter can disrespectfully confront and hold captive a presidential news conference IN the White House.
Our enemies know that they can only defeat America by poisoning it slowly from within. They have the media and the schools, and they are keeping the hordes flowing in with open borders. Watch it happen right before your apathetic & complacent eyes..

Gillette stands by #MeToo
ad amid controversy
Boston Herald, by Jonathan Ng and Sean Philip Cotter    Original Article

Gillette is doubling down on a controversial new campaign that appears aimed at taking on so-called toxic masculinity — but has created a social media firestorm. The two-minute video from Boston-based razor brand Gillette urges men to act against sexual harassment, misogyny and bullying, asking: “Is this the best a man can get?” While fans are applauding the move, critics say it assumes men need to be steered away from negative tendencies. The ad starts off with audio of news about the #MeToo movement, saying, “We can’t hide from it. It has been going on far too long. We

On the 25th anniversary of the Northridge earthquake, the second temblor in two days has woken up the Bay Area, with the last seismic event a magnitude 3.5 centered in the Oakland-Berkeley Hills. The latest temblor struck at 6:11 a.m., with an epicenter less than a mile west of the western edge of the Caldecott Tunnel — about 2 miles southeast of the UC Berkeley campus and 4 miles northeast of downtown Oakland.

In the past two months, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has fractured three ribs and had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung. She was absent from oral argument last week and will miss this week’s arguments as well. Doctors say they expect her to be back on the bench in February, and until then she will review transcripts from her home and participate in the court’s decision-making remotely. But her return to work has not quieted critics who say that Ginsburg should have retired long ago and that her health issues are the latest evidence that justices should not be

Pelosi shuts outspoken

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi exacted revenge against one of her most outspoken detractors Tuesday night, blocking Rep. Kathleen Rice from landing a seat on the high-profile House Judiciary Committee. Pelosi lobbied for other members to join the panel over Rice, leaving the third-term New York Democrat off a list of her preferred members for the committee during a tense closed-door meeting Tuesday night, according to multiple sources. The effort came despite a full-court push from the New York delegation to secure a spot for Rice, a former prosecutor, on the panel that oversees everything from impeachment to guns to immigration.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) announced on Tuesday that she will form a 2020 presidential exploratory committee, a precursor to officially seeking the Democratic nomination. “I’m filing an exploratory committee for the president of the United States tonight," she said during a taped interview on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. (Snip) Gillibrand mentioned health care, better public schools, taking on institutional racism, and "corruption and greed in Washington" as motivators and goals for her run, noting that her progressive goals cannot be accomplished without confronting those impediments.

Snowpack In The West Has Resisted Climate
Change But That Won´t Last Forever

For the last 35 years, the snowpack in the West’s mountains has resisted the impacts of global warming. But that could soon change, according to a new study out of Oregon State University. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that although climate change should have caused a steep decrease in snowpack, naturally occurring, decades-long weather variations shielded the Cascades, Sierras and Rockies from some of the effects. Although snow stations have recorded some decline, it hasn’t been statistically significant. But according to the study, without this natural weather variation, snowpack in Oregon could have declined

According to a new report by CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard — who just announced her intentions to run for president in 2020 — once touted her work for an anti-LGBT organization and railed against “homosexual extremists.” Gabbard’s prior comments are in sharp contrast to her more recent record in support of LGBT rights and seem to stem to work she did with her father. Gabbard’s father, Mike, was an anti-LGBT activist in Hawaii and ran a political action group that promoted traditional marriage. Rep. Gabbard is even quoted in one of the press releases. Kaczynski reports: Gabbard herself

President Trump on Thursday abruptly denied military aircraft to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for a foreign trip just minutes before the congressional delegation was set to depart, in a stunning response to her call to delay the State of the Union address amid the government shutdown. In a curt letter, Trump said her trip has been “postponed.” “Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed. We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over. In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay,

Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday asked President Donald Trump to reschedule his State of the Union address — or deliver it in writing — as long as the government remains shut down. "Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th," Pelosi wrote in a letter to Trump.

WASHINGTON—House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Wednesday night she “doesn’t care” if the Secret Service said it was prepared to appropriately secure the State of the Union address despite the partial government shutdown. Instead, she stood firm in her resolve to delay the January 29 event until the government completely re-opens. (Photo) In a letter to President Trump, Pelosi claimed the lack of funds to Homeland Security posed a risk to the White House and the Congress during the event, but the Department of Homeland Security Sec.

It’s tough to tell. Does this make the shutdown a bug … or a feature? Nancy Pelosi has asked Donald Trump to put off his State of the Union speech to the joint session of Congress until after the funding issues have been resolved: (Copy of Letter/Tweet) And with that, the new Speaker of the House just made the best case possible for a perpetual shutdown. Kidding! What I meant to say was that Nancy Pelosi has finally sounded a note of wisdom, at least in her reminder that presidents used to just deliver a report in writing to Congress.

An ESPN host suggested Wednesday it was racist for President Donald Trump to serve fast food to the Clemson football team at the White House, saying such food being given to players of a "predominately black sport" gave her pause. (Snip)While the players appeared to enjoy the food, some political and sports observers took Trump to task for what they considered a low-class gesture. On the daily ESPN debate show "First Take," panelists Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman discussed the matter, with Smith saying it was a "classless" and "disgraceful" move by Trump.
