It sure looks as if Kirsten
Gillibrand is running for president

Washington Post, by Sean McElwee and Jon Green

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/1/2018 9:32:38 AM

Will Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) run for president in 2020? She has been quick to clamp down on any speculation about a 2020 bid. But her actions suggest otherwise. Gillibrand has staked out a particularly anti-Trump voting record in the Senate, which could distinguish her brand when Democrats start culling the herd for their 2020 nominee. There’s a lot of progressive chatter about Gillibrand A Democrat hoping to run for president might have a strategy of tacking noticeably to the left — in an attempt to grab the attention and enthusiasm of the progressive activists most likely to work for

Comments:
She has the charm of Hillary, the policies of Bernie, and career ambition of Mao Tse Tung.

If so, Gillibrand is just another goofy, narcissistic wannabee. We do not need any more anti-American Democrat(ick)s trying to "rule" our country. President Trump is doing SO Great!

She is "too white" and not socialist enough....

Dontcha know the "smart money" is on the joining of a woman (the Hitlery faction) who is also black (the Nobama faction)?

Heym, he managed to bamboozle the country with FULL media collusion and then only had the RACE card via Trayvon Martin to run on and the sleight of hand worked AGAIN.

Of course, it didn´t help that the opponents were RINOs who threw off the social and economic conservatives that delivered both Bushes.

Gillibrans appears to be a "coat tail grabber" latching on to BJ Clinton to raise money while at the same time saying he shoujld have been removed for his sexual dalliances...

But of course, he is a Clinton so HE gets a pass.

Fauxcahontas Warren is also "too white", although her socialist bona fides check out--look to Kamala Harris...who also has no background to be president...

Great! Another shrew for President. No thanks. She would lie with impunity because the media will never challenge her. Afterall, women never lie (/s).

Gillibrand would be a one-message candidate. Can anyone guess? She would say Trump is guilty of sexual harassment. Tedious.

Does she fit the Democratic profile for President? Socially divisive. Critical of America. Pro-Muslim, pro-Socialist, and pro-Communist. A globalista.

Close enough.

She won´t win.

Isn´t she the one who has no integrity? Maybe a Kamala Harris Kirsten Gillibrand ticket which collectively would satisfy most of the Dem requirements: Female, communist, "person of color", vulgarian, perfectly willing to sell out any group or "principle" for money and/or support. Given the Dems´ empty bench (due to the Clintons´ destructive dominance for so many years), the two women might be selected. We´ll know when we see who Obama (aka Soros) favors, and then who Hillary throws her (considerable in every sense) weight and huge amounts of (ill gotten) money behind (which will happen when the witch finally admits that her own political career is OVER). Also Pelosi should be watched for who she seems to favor. With the Dems it begins and ends with who can raise the most moola.

GOP needs to push hard against the whole idea of any progressive.

Heck, only 20% of the population identifies as liberal, but all liberals are progressive, and nearly all are white.

split the idea of Democrats and progressives being of the same actual party, they aren´t, and many African-Americans and Hispanics will realize it if they are given the distinct differences.

There are no more "blue Dog" democrat politicians. They liberal/progressive side of the democrat party has expunged them from any meaningful part of the party except to win a district here and there in hopes of gaining the Majority.

Re: Nikki Haley. Parents emigrated from India to British Columbia. Father got his PhD in 1969. Family moved to SC for a teaching position. Unless both parents naturalized as US citizens before Jan 20, 1972 (her DOB) she is not eligible...same as Cruz, Jindal, and Rubio, born of non-citizen parents.

And Gillibrand is a joke.

Gillibrand is a vacant eyed, puffy faced bimbo who has never had nor will ever have a single original thought bouncing around the empty void in her enclosed by her thick skull.

To top it all off her moral bankruptcy is clearly visible to all who care to see after she proudly used Billy Goat Clinton during her successful reelection campaign including greedily accepting cash from the Clintons and then just recently did a complete about face and condemned her formal idol Billy Goat Clinton for his sexual abuse of women.

Amazing how the democrat communist party is a magnet for twisted and malevolent humanoids like Gillibrand.

Allow me to refute the logic of #19.
Here is the hypothetical. A hospital in Kansas City finds a newborn baby on its doorstep. Umbilical cord still attached. It must have been born in the U.S., thus a natural born citizen. The baby is adopted by husband and wife physicians who work at the hospital, and who found the baby on the doorstep.
The boy, or girl if you like, grows up to be an academic and athletic star, doing exceptionally well academically as well as athletically. The child goes to West Point, graduates at the top of his or her class, and is cisgender.
After 4 years in the Army, the person goes to law school, builds a successful practice, runs for local office, wins, runs for the U.S. senate, wins, and then runs for president. Nothing is ever known about the birth parents, except on the person´s Ancestry results, it is known that 50% of the DNA is Irish, 30% Eastern European, 15% western european, and 5 % native american.
Would any of you people find the person described as not constitutionally qualified to serve as U.S. president?

Then ´logically´ that would make ´anchor babies´ born of non-citizen parents ´natural born´. That´s like calling a dog born in France to 2 German Shepherds a French Poodle. You are what your parents are and in the above example they could be 2 Canadians who abandoned their child at birth.

We need to stop granting citizenship to the offspring of non-citizen parents let alone pretending that they qualify as ´natural born´...born of 2 citizen parents because they can´t be anything else.

A former aide for President Obama tore into James Comey after the ex-FBI director urged Democrats not to “lose” their minds and “rush to the socialist left.” Tommy Vietor, a former Obama spokesperson and current co-host of the popular "Pod Save America" podcast, responded to Comey on Sunday afternoon. “Hey Jim, we got this covered,” Vietor wrote on Twitter. “No one is asking for your advice. As we saw during the campaign, your judgment isn’t great! All the best, everyone.” (Tweet) His tweet came after Comey told Democrats that leaning too far to the left is what President Trump and

Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne

Sergio Marchionne has stepped down from his position as CEO of Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) about a year earlier than expected due to significant complications from shoulder surgery. The automaker’s board of management appointed Mike Manley, who previously ran the Jeep and Ram divisions, as Marchionne’s replacement during an emergency meeting. Outspoken and influential, 66-year old Marchionne had surgery on his right shoulder in early July. His recovery took an unexpected turn for the worse on July 21. FCA has not released additional details about Marchionne’s health, stating only he will be unable to return to work, but comments from other

BUENOS AIRES - European finance leaders called for progress on global rules to tax the digital economy at a meeting of G20 finance ministers and central bankers in Argentina on Sunday, putting them at odds with U.S. counterparts. The final communique reaffirmed a commitment to address the impacts of the shift to a digital economy on the international tax system by 2020, without giving more details. The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union, proposed rules earlier this year to make digital companies pay more tax, with U.S. tech giants such as Alphabet’s Google, Facebook and Amazon set

While the energy and momentum is with progressives these days — the victory of rising star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York, buzz about Democratic Socialism and the spread of the "Abolish Ice!" movement are a few recent examples — moderates are warning that ignoring them will lead the party to disaster in the midterm elections and the 2020 presidential contest.

DETROIT — For Rachel Conner, the 2018 election season has been a moment of revelation. A 27-year-old social worker, Ms. Conner voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primaries, spurning the more liberal Bernie Sanders, whom many of her peers backed. But Ms. Conner changed course in this year’s campaign for governor, after concluding that Democrats could only win with more daring messages on issues like public health and immigration. And so on a recent Wednesday, she enlisted two other young women to volunteer for Abdul El-Sayed, a 33-year-old advocate of single-payer health care running an uphill race in Michigan to

There’s no question that the story of the Democratic party right now is about the ascending left. There’s a bumper crop of self-consciously progressive candidates running for office this year, while many relatively non-ideological “Establishment Democrats” are embracing policy positions and political messages long associated with party insurgents. The relative strength of various Democratic factions in Congress won’t be possible to reliably measure until after the midterms. But with the 2020 presidential election cycle soon to begin (the first candidate debates will probably be held about this time next year), it’s looking like

By Nov. 7, Democrats will learn if their left turn steered them to victory or took them off a cliff. The state party’s endorsement of Kevin de León, a self-proclaimed socialist’s upset of an establishment Democrat in a New York City congressional primary and talk of abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement and enacting single-payer health care show an embrace of progressive politics that heartens liberal activists enraged by conservative policies pursued by President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans.

CLEARWATER — Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced Friday that his agency will not arrest a man deputies say shot and killed another man during an argument over a handicap parking space. The incident falls under Florida’s self-defense law known as "stand your ground," the sheriff said during a news conference. The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves. The shooting "is within the bookends of ‘stand your ground’ and within the bookends of force being justified," the sheriff said, later adding, "I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make

Iran faces increased U.S. pressure and looming sanctions after Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from a 2015 international deal over Iran’s nuclear program.

In the past few days, President Trump has given at least some Republicans reason to express displeasure over his relationship with Russia. First he performed a pathetic ritual of subservience before Vladimir Putin, standing beside the Russian leader — after a private meeting between the two, which no aides were permitted to attend — and dismissing the copious evidence of a Russian attack on the 2016 election in deference to Putin’s word.
