O´Rourke faces sharp backlash from left

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) has faced sharp backlash from progressives in the days since his presidential campaign launched to great fanfare last week. Left-leaning Democrats have criticized O’Rourke for a string of comments made in a Vanity Fair story preceding the opening of his campaign and in his subsequent days on the trail. Some of the remarks — such as O’Rourke’s statement to Vanity Fair, referring to the presidential race, that he was “just born to be in it” — have fanned complaints that the Texan is blinded by “white privilege.” Others have brought charges of sexism or

The left had better be careful which nametags they pin on Beto. Things like "Stupid" and "Unaccomplished" apply to many of them. He´s working for the GOP candidates right now by drawing money out of liberal white women so let him campaign his socks off.

2020 Election: Stacey Abrams would
be a great choice for Joe Biden´s
VP — but a better one for president
Independent [UK], by Madeline Ruth Somerville    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 3/21/2019 8:28:14     Post Reply
The apparent scoop du jour is that ex-VP Joe Biden is set to announce his bid with his running mate already picked out: former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Suggestions for his VP thus far have been a who’s-who of the current field of competition for the nomination, including Harris and O’Rourke. Abrams possibly becoming The Chosen One is somewhat surprising, because her star has only so recently begun its ascendency — but not too surprising, because of her fierce intellect, warm demeanor and popularity. Stacey Abrams exudes good sense and kindness, delivered with impeccable poise: that’s the impression most

Cory Booker´s in love, he´s in love, he´s in love, he´s in love, he´s in love with a wonderful person who sports female genitalia! Booker, who is NOT gay, spilled the beans during a visit with Ellen DeGeneres, who IS gay! Just who is this new squeeze of Booker´s who is also a woman? Rosario Dawson!

DENVER -- Former Colorado governor and presidential candidate John Hickenlooper needed to have a big moment during his nationally televised town hall on CNN. He accomplished that. But it´s perhaps not the kind of attention he wanted. (Tweet) When asked by CNN´s Dana Bash if he would select a woman to be on the ticket, he replied: "Of course." But then he pivoted, perhaps awkwardly, to say, "How come we aren´t asking the women, ´Would you be willing to put a man on the ticket?´" Bash quickly replied, "When we get to that point, I´ll ask you that question."

In the crowded field of Democratic presidential candidates, Andrew Yang stands out with a lengthy and eccentric list of policy proposals. Yang, a lawyer-turned-entrepreneur who has never run for a political office before, addresses more than 75 issues on his website for what he calls “A Campaign of Ideas.” Yang is a New Yorker whose parents immigrated to the United States from Taiwan in the 1960s. In 2011, he launched the non-profit Venture for America. It encourages and trains young entrepreneurs to work for local start-ups across the country.

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough on Wednesday compared likely 2020 Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg to former President Barack Obama. Scarborough tweeted that he and his co-host and wife, Mika Brzezinski, have been “overwhelmed” by the response from viewers to Buttigieg’s appearance on “Morning Joe.” “Mika and I have been overwhelmed by the reaction [Pete Buttigieg] got after being on the show,” Scarborough tweeted. “The only other time in twelve years that we heard from as many people about a guest was after [Barack Obama] appeared on Morning Joe.” (Tweet) The 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, has not yet officially

Democrats, increasingly worried about the U.S. Supreme Court tilting to the right, have been talking lately about changes in its overall makeup. Most voters like the idea of term-limiting the justices but draw the line at adding more members to the court. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 27% of Likely U.S. Voters favor increasing the number of justices on the Supreme Court. Fifty-one percent (51%) are opposed, but 22% are undecided. (Snip) The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on March 17-18, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error

Joe Biden Faces the Unthinkable:
Can He Not Keep Up with Bernie?

Joe Biden has left little doubt that he is running for president because he has already told us. “I have the most progressive record of anybody running for the—” he exclaimed during a speech in Delaware over the weekend, before stopping short. “Anybody who would run,” he corrected himself. Nevertheless, we must continue to pretend, for now, that Biden is not officially seeking the White House, despite mounting and irrefutable evidence that he is doing precisely that. Politico’s Playbook says Democratic ad-maker Mark Putnam was “SPOTTED” in Scranton, Pennsylvania, over the weekend, where he was apparently “scoping out” Biden’s childhood

The Council on American-Islamic Relations is calling on all advertisers to drop Fox News until the network fires hosts Jeanine Pirro and Tucker Carlson due to comments by both hosts that the civil rights group called “Islamophobic.” “Fox News must clearly state that Jeanine Pirro will not be allowed back on the air after her long history of Islamophobic hate rhetoric and the network must also take similar action against other Islamophobic hosts like Tucker Carlson,” CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said in a statement. “All existing advertisers should drop their ads on Fox News to ensure that

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts said she believes it is time for Mississippi to disavow its Confederate icons — namely on its state flag. "I would support removing Confederate celebrations from federal lands and putting them in museums where they belong," Warren said at a CNN townhall in Jackson, Mississippi, on Monday evening. Asked if she believes the state should adopt a new flag, Warren had a short answer. "Yes," she said to an applauding crowd. Mississippi´s flag, which features a confederate battle emblem, has been a source of controversy. The flag from 1894 has been accused of

How do you answer hatred? How should you respond when your political opponents assault you with insult, stereotype and contempt? That’s the moral question we all have to answer during this election campaign. Hatred has become the defining emotion of our political life. As my colleague Thomas B. Edsall reported last week, according to a recent paper, 42 percent of the people in each party regard their opposition as “downright evil.” Nearly 20 percent of both Democrats and Republicans believe that their political adversaries “lack the traits to be considered fully human — they behave like animals.” Roughly 20

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) gave her most detailed answer to date on the question of reparations for black Americans as a means of addressing centuries of slavery and legal discrimination. In a CNN town hall on Monday night in Jackson, Miss., Warren became the first 2020 presidential candidate serving in the Senate to endorse a House bill that would create a commission to study reparation proposals. “I love the idea of this congressional commission,” she said at Jackson State, a historically black university. “I believe it’s time to start the national, full-blown conversation about reparations.” The bill

Former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile was full of posthumous praise for the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Wednesday’s edition of Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier. The context was President Trump’s renewed criticism of McCain after a newly-released deposition showed how deeply McCain was involved in the fraudulent “Russia dossier” that has been used to attack the administration and divide the nation. Brazile, who Fox News recently hired as a contributor, began by criticizing the president for speaking ill of the dead. She then continued: “John McCain leaves a legacy.

The battle over the admissions standards at New York City’s elite public high schools has heated up again. After having failed to change the standards last year, Mayor Bill de Blasio is back at it, this time with some backup from celebrity freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. As usual, their impassioned pleas about the lack of black and Hispanic students completely ignores that it is Asian, not white, students who would bear the brunt of the proposed changes. At issue is the fact that these hyper-competitive high schools consider only a test score in deciding admissions

OLATHE, Kan.—Soon after Jim Hildenbrand arrived in Avignon Villa Homes, a community for older adults in a Kansas City suburb, the homeowner association disputed the placement of his satellite dish. It cited him for parking cars in his driveway overnight and placing a St. Francis statue in a flower bed. He was later written up for a dead cat in a window well—which Mr. Hildenbrand suspects was planted by a neighborhood enemy. Things went downhill from there. After he installed a decorative, shin-high wall around a plant bed on the side of his house,

A federal judge ruled that the Interior Department violated federal law by failing to take into account the climate impact of its oil and gas leasing in the West. The decision late Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras in the District of Columbia marks the first time the Trump administration has been held to account for the climate impact of its energy agenda, and it could have sweeping implications for the president’s plan to boost fossil fuel production across the country. Contreras concluded that Interior’s Bureau of Land Management “did not sufficiently consider climate change” when making decisions to auction

The commandant of the Marines has warned the Pentagon that deployments to the southwest border and funding transfers under the president’s emergency declaration, among other unexpected demands, have posed “unacceptable risk to Marine Corps combat readiness and solvency.” In two internal memos, Marine Corps Gen.

Former liberal Republican California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger ripped President Donald Trump on Wednesday evening for his “absolutely unacceptable” attacks on the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). “He was just an unbelievable person,” Schwarzenegger told the Atlantic. “So an attack on him is absolutely unacceptable if he’s alive or dead—but even twice as unacceptable since he passed away a few months ago. It doesn’t make any sense whatsoever to do that. I just think it’s a shame that the president lets himself down to that kind of level.
