Dems Raise $75M Across Many Campaigns, Signaling Lengthy Fight Ahead

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidates raised about $75 million during the first quarter of the 2020 election, a lackluster sum spread out across more than a dozen campaigns that signals a drawn-out battle likely lies ahead. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders led the field by raising $18 million and California Sen. Kamala Harris came in second with $12 million. Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke came in third with $9.3 million, followed by South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who ca...

Tulsi Gabbard could be the president America needs

With every passing year, politicians grow more confident in their ability to thrust Americans into another war, to make decisions that benefit themselves and not their constituents, and to increase their profits as the average American can hardly scrape by. Few politicians take a stand against this, to what has become the norm, and when they do, the mainstream media will either smear them or not cover them at all. It takes a soldier-president to reverse this course. Fortunately, we have such a c...

Democrat Tulsi Gabbard wins coveted David Duke endorsement

Congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) has won the endorsement of former KKK leader David Duke. Wait, what? A "Tulsi Gabbard for President" banner features the banner tagline, "Finally a candidate who will actually put America First rather than Israel First!" Duke also endorsed Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election. Though Gabbard does have some reactionary credentials (she's a notorious homophobe, among other things), Duke's probably trolling as she's oth...

Conway: If Booker Were Republican, He’d Be ‘Sexist’ For Running Against Women

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway reacted to Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-NJ) decision to throw his hat in the 2020 ring by crying sexism. During an interview with “Fox and Friends” on Friday, Conway questioned what was wrong with the female candidates who have already announced their presidential bids. “I  would ask him a couple  questions as he runs from my  native New Jersey.  One is, what is wrong with the  candidates that are already in there?” she said. “ What is your objection to Ka...

The party’s over and everyone is invited!

As every high schooler knows, when Mom and Dad are away it’s time to play!

There is such a thing as too much freedom. The 2020 rugby scrum for the Democratic Party presidential nomination may finally confirm what our Founding Father’s feared most; there may be such a thing as too much de...

No, the government shutdown isn’t a ‘crisis’

This government shutdown is now longer than any in history. The media keep using the word “crisis.” “Shutdown sows chaos, confusion and anxiety!” says The Washington Post. “Pain spreads widely.” The New York Times headlined, it’s all “just too much!” But wait. Looking around America, I see people going about their business — families eating in restaurants, employees going to work, children playing in playgrounds, etc. I have to ask: Where’s the crisis? Pundits talk as if government is the most i...

Hawkish establishment goes after Tulsi Gabbard

This year it seems every Democrat with a minimum of name recognition is considering running for president. For the party, the surge of enthusiasm comes with a few risks. The biggest is a messy intra-party fight. And so far, the worst sign of the consequences of that conflict is the early effort to torpedo the nascent campaign of Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii. Gabbard isn’t like the Democrats’ typical candidates. But she’s not one of the restive moderates or the activist socialists, either. On clo...
