Bernie Sanders Hires Fierce Biden, Beto, Harris Critic As Top Adviser

Bernie Sanders has brought an old ally back into the fold — one who has a long-running history of painting a number of Sanders’ top 2020 foes as being corporatist traitors. Sanders’ campaign announced Tuesday that he’s hired journalist David Sirota as a senior communications adviser and speechwriter. Sirota began his career in populist-liberal politics, working as Sanders’ press secretary back when he was a House member before working for a number of Democratic candidates and elected officials...

"He's Obamaish," said Jenny Turner, 38, a Republican voter who stopped in at an O'Rourke event to see what all the fuss was about. "I...

A Wave Of New Bills Would Ban Abortion Before Most Women Even Know They're Pregnant

While President Donald Trump is banking on the power of inflammatory anti-abortion rhethoric to help him win the White House again, conservative lawmakers in state legislatures across the country are laserfocused on taking the fight to the courts. The road to making abortion illegal in the U.S. again is paved with extreme regulations like so-called “hearbeat bills.”Since January, nearly a dozen states have introduced this type of legislation, which bans abortion as soon as a fetal heartbeat is ...

Trump Chaffs Beto’s ‘Hand Movement’: ‘Is He Crazy Or Is That Just The Way He Acts?’

President Trump’s main worry when it comes to the firebrand, young liberal who just tossed his hat in the 2020 ring? He gesticulates too much. “Well I think he’s got a lot of hand movement, I’ve never seen so much hand movement,” Trump told reporters in the White House on Thursday when asked about Beto O’Rourke’s candidacy. “I said, ‘Is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?’ I’ve never seen hand movement. I watched him a little while this morning doing, I assume it was some kind of a news...

Trump launches bizarre attack on 'crazy' Beto O'Rourke over his hand movements

Trump, Beto Hold Dueling Rallies Across The Street From Each Other

In the first dueling rallies of the 2020 campaign season, Trump’s “Finish the Wall” rally in El Paso went head-to-head Monday night against counterprogramming by Beto O’Rourke, a former...

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 ...
