Trump Breaks Precedent As President With His 2020 Dem Challengers Punditry

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Kamala Harris had the best campaign roll-out. Amy Klobuchar’s snowy debut showed grit. Elizabeth Warren’s opening campaign video was a bit odd. Take it from an unlikely armchair pundit sizing up the 2020 Democratic field: President Donald Trump. In tweets, public remarks and private conversations, Trump is making clear he is closely following the campaign to challenge him on the ballot. Facing no serious primary opponent of his own — at least so far — Trump is esta...

Campaign Status Check

I’m struck by the velocity and activity around and from Kamala Harris’s campaign. This is not a pro- or con- analysis. I genuinely have no favorite in any of this. Part of this is just the frequency of media attention, reports from campaign trips. That of course can simply be circular, media attention. But if you notice, over recent days Harris has received the endorsements of Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Dolores Huerta and California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D). The new governor of the biggest state in t...

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...

Voice Of Reason Nancy Pelosi Calls BS On Trump's "National Emergency"

Say it with us: There is no national emergency on the U.S.-Mexico border. But this didn't stop President Donald Trump from declaring one on Friday after being unable to get funding from Congress for his border wall and presiding over the longest government shutdown in U.S. history."I didn’t need to do this," Trump said in his announcement (no, he didn't, agree Democrats) after signing a spending bill to keep the government running. "But I’d rather do it much faster." In the deal, he got about $...

House Passes Funding Bill, Sending It To Trump’s Desk

WASHINGTON (AP) — Congress lopsidedly approved a border security compromise Thursday that would avert a second painful government shutdown, but a new confrontation was ignited — this time over President Donald Trump’s plan to bypass lawmakers and declare a national emergency to siphon billions from other federal coffers for his wall on the Mexican boundary. Money in the bill for border barriers, about $1.4 billion, is far below the $5.7 billion Trump insisted he needed to build a wall along t...

Trump will sign funding bill and declare national emergency in attempt to fund border wall

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday afternoon that Donald Trump plans sign a federal government spending package that reflects compromises over his US-Mexico border wall, and that Trump will also declare a national state of emergency. Team Trump intends to use the phony emergency declaration to obtain more money for The Wall. Shortly after McConnell broke the news, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed the same in a statement on Twitter. Statement on Governme...

Trump Aides Target Booker, Harris, Warren; Trump Frets About Biden

As President Donald Trump and his aides gear up for 2020, they are most concerned about different targets: Trump’s staffers are focused on gathering opposition research on Sens.

Kamala Harris is "bluntly putting down markers on nuanced topics to help inoculate her from false critiques with answers that also illuminate how she views her own identity."

That's from Politico, "Why Kamala Harris is glad people are asking if she's black enough/The candidate is looking to head off a problem that dogged Barack Obama" by Christopher Cadelago.First, I don't believe that Politico knows that Harris is "glad." Also, I wouldn't use the word "dogged" with Barack Obama, given that he was dogged with the question of the literal eating of dogs.But what I want to do is count the metaphors in the quote I put in the title:1. bluntly — The adjective leads us to t...
