Trump Repeatedly Undermines Loyal Soldier Pence In The Shutdown Fight

WASHINGTON (AP) — Progress made, said one. Not so, said the other. We’ll meet again, said one. Waste of time, said the other.

The vice president has been one of the administration’s most visible emissaries during the shutdown fight, meeting with lawmakers, sitting for interviews and leading staff-level talks.

Harris’ Prosecutorial Past Defense In Memoir Ramps Up 2020 Speculation

WASHINGTON (AP) — As she nears a decision on whether to seek the presidency, Sen. Kamala Harris is taking on what could be a hurdle in a Democratic primary: her past as a prosecutor. In her memoir published Tuesday, the California Democrat describes herself as a “progressive prosecutor” and says it’s a “false choice” to decide between supporting the police and advocating for greater scrutiny of law enforcement. The argument is aimed at liberal critics of her record who argue she was sometimes ...

Sending A Signal? Obama Calls For ‘Fresh Blood’ At Leadership Event

President Barack Obama gave a speech for the Obama Foundation in Hawaii Sunday night during which he said we have a “deficit of leadership” and “need fresh blood,” according to a Honolulu Civil Beat report.  The comment may have been innocuous: Obama was speaking at an event dedicated to nurturing future leaders in the Asia-Pacific region. But if the President was sending a subtle signal about his 2020 preferences, it would be bad news for his former vice president. Joe Biden, openly consider...

Eric Garcetti for president? He’d be a long shot — with reasons for hope

He’s a nice guy, a polished campaigner. He’s the mayor of one of the nation’s biggest cities. He’s also from the nation’s biggest state, a state that’s about to play a larger-than-usual role in his party’s presidential nomination process. If Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti enters the Democratic race for president in 2020 – and he’s expected to announce a decision soon — all those factors could help him, or just as easily harm him. That’s the consensus view of 10 political professionals and polit...

Conway Calls Out Pelosi For ‘Poor Form,’ Just Before Mocking Pelosi’s Age

During an appearance on “Fox and Friends” Thursday morning, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway suggested it was “poor form” for incoming Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to “insult” President Trump “personally.” Seconds later, she made a joke about Pelosi’s age. “For the  incoming  speaker to come in and say,  well — to really try to  insult the President  personally is very poor  form.  She is a leader in this  country now.  She is number three in line  to the presidency...

Former Afghanistan Commander Calls Trump Immoral, Hits Troop Cuts

WASHINGTON (AP) — The former top U.S. commander in Afghanistan said Sunday that withdrawing up to half the 14,000 American troops serving there would reduce the incentive for the Taliban to negotiate a peace deal after more than 17 years of war. Retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal said the U.S. has “basically traded away the biggest leverage point we have.” McChrystal’s comments were in response to reports that President Donald Trump had ordered the Pentagon to develop plans to withdraw thousands of...

2020: Year of the Democrats? Maybe Not

Obama in the Rose Garden with Crying Joe Biden U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- If Democrats are optimistic as 2019 begins, it is understandable. Their victory on Nov. 6, adding 40 seats and taking control of the House of Representatives, was impressive. And with the party's total vote far exceeding the GOP total, in places it became a rout. In the six New England states, Republicans no longer hold a single House seat. Susan Collins of Maine is the last GOP senator. In California, Democrats took the ...

Playing The Waiting Game: Beto Is In No Rush To Decide His 2020 Move

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — If the deep field of potential Democratic presidential contenders is on pins and needles as Beto O’Rourke decides his next move, it could be a long wait. The outgoing Texas congressman’s team says he has no timeline or roadmap for deciding if he’d like to parlay a surprisingly close loss to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz into a White House try. People close to O’Rourke insist he hasn’t expanded staff or lined up consultants even as the interest in him intensifies. They say he’s...

By STEVE PEOPLES and JILL COLVIN WASHINGTON — Democrats have regained control of the House from President Donald Trump’s Republican Party in the midterm elections , powered by a suburban revolt that has threatened what’s left of the president’s governing agenda. But the GOP added to its Senate edge and prevailed in some key races for governor Tuesday, beating back the potential of big Democratic gains across the board.
