'Just say the 5 words: The election was not stolen': Democratic lawmakers rip into GOP Rep. Jim Jordan for amplifying Trump's election lies

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH). Stefani Reynolds-Pool/Getty Images Democratic lawmakers on Tuesday pushed Rep. Jim Jordan to explicitly say that President-elect Joe Biden legitimately won the 2020 race, but he refused to do so without repeating baseless voter fraud claims peddled by President Donald Trump. "I'm asking you to make a statement that the election was not stolen," Democratic Rep. Jim McGovern said. "[Biden's] going to be the president," Jordan said. "That is not the question I asked," ...

The Democratic Party Destroyed Its Own Chances in 1972. Today’s Democrats Could Learn From That Year’s Mistakes

In retrospect, Richard Nixon was certain to win re-election in 1972. The economy was recovering from a recession during his first two years in office, he had wound down the Vietnam War, and his trips to Beijing and Moscow, transforming and defusing the Cold War, were enormously popular. Yet he also owed his landslide margin of victory to Democratic disarray. The story of the Democratic nomination in 1972, when a left-wing Democrat popular among youth won the battle but lost the war, has les...

It's not 1972 and Bernie Sanders isn't George McGovern

He went on to lose to incumbent Republican President Richard Nixon by a whopping 23 percentage points in the popular vote, and an Electoral College wipeout for the ages."Losing campaigns — especially thumpingly, head-spinningly losing campaigns — are objects of talismanic power in th...

Yes, Bernie Sanders Could Be the Nominee—and It Would Be an Epic Nightmare for Democrats

It suddenly seems that Bernie Sanders—the democratic socialist candidate competing in the Democratic primaries—might actually have a chance of winning a significant number of primaries, thus becoming the Democratic Party’s nominee for president in 2020. As Holly Otterbein and David Siders write in Politico, the man who was written off by party insiders “as a candidate with a committed but narrow base who was too far left to win the primary” is now forcing the party’s leaders to reevaluate that a...

Majority in House Expected to Vote to Impeach President Trump

(WASHINGTON) — On the eve of almost-certain impeachment, President Donald Trump fired off a furious letter Tuesday to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi denouncing the “vicious crusade” against him, while Democrats amassed the votes they needed and Republicans looked ahead, vowing to defend Trump at next month’s Senate trial. Trump, who would be just the third U.S. president to be impeached, acknowledged he was powerless to stop Wednesday’s vote. He appeared to intend his lengthy, accusatory mess...

You Asked For It, GOP: Full House Will Vote On The Process For Impeachment

Jim McGovern (D-MA), announced Monday. The text of the resolution has not been released in full yet. “As committees continue to gather evidence and prepare to present their findings, I will be introducing a resolution to ens...

"It is as if Nixon held a press conference and began it by saying, 'Yes, I’m a crook. And the American people deserve to know it.'"

"'But McGovern would have been a terrible president and so it was entirely worthwhile. Sure, I committed a high crime in tampering with the last election. But sometimes high crimes are necessary to save the country from the Democrats.' Nixon, for all his profound flaws, would never have said such a thing. His cover-up was, in a way, a tribute to the rule of law the way hypocrisy is often a tribute to virtue. He had some reverence for the Constitution, even as he betrayed it. He had some sense of...

Duterte Swears Never To Come To The U.S: 'I've Seen America, And It's Lousy'

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, in no uncertain terms, never wants to step foot in the United States. That’s what he told reporters on Friday after being asked about Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA) slamming Duterte over human rights abuses in the Philippines and saying he would “lead the protest” if the president accepted Donald Trump’s invitation to the White House. “There will never be a time that I will go to America during my term, or even thereafter,” Duterte said. “So what makes that guy th...

Trump Botches a Media Moment

Who among us ever dreamed we would pine for the days when we had an American president who saw himself as both figuratively and literally "above" the rest of us--a president who was so isolated in the rarefied world of international politics and command decisions that he was oblivious to the detritus of pop culture, celebrity gossip, and the assorted background noise that so delights the "masses"? Instead, we got a guy in the White House who's the exact opposite. From all the evidence so far, D...

The Roots Of The Democratic Debacle

On January 20 , what was unthinkable to many just a few weeks ago will become reality: Donald Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States. Trump’s victory, which in many ways echoed the Brexit vote, was part of an increasingly global revolt against elites—political, financial, and cultural. It was also a populist rebellion against the economic and social dislocations of a globalization process dominated by the interests of multinational corporations and exacerbated by ...
