O´Rourke faces sharp backlash from left
Hill [Washington DC], by Amie Parnes

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 3/18/2019 11:17:09 PM

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) has faced sharp backlash from progressives in the days since his presidential campaign launched to great fanfare last week. Left-leaning Democrats have criticized O’Rourke for a string of comments made in a Vanity Fair story preceding the opening of his campaign and in his subsequent days on the trail. Some of the remarks — such as O’Rourke’s statement to Vanity Fair, referring to the presidential race, that he was “just born to be in it” — have fanned complaints that the Texan is blinded by “white privilege.” Others have brought charges of sexism or

I would love to know what P.J. O´Rourke thinks of "Beto" O´Rourke. That would be one rollicking fun column to read.

The left had better be careful which nametags they pin on Beto. Things like "Stupid" and "Unaccomplished" apply to many of them. He´s working for the GOP candidates right now by drawing money out of liberal white women so let him campaign his socks off.

NEW YORK - Lawyer Michael Avenatti, who represented adult film star Stormy Daniels in her legal battles against U.S. President Donald Trump, was arrested on Monday and charged with trying to extort more than $20 million from Nike Inc , federal prosecutors said. The U.S. Attorney’s offices in New York and Los Angeles separately filed charges against Avenatti, with the California case accusing him of embezzling a client’s money to cover his own debts, as well as using phony tax returns to obtain millions of dollars in loans from a bank. New York prosecutors said Avenatti and an unnamed co-conspirator

South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) surged into third place in a poll of the Iowa caucus released Sunday. Eleven percent of likely Democratic Iowa caucusgoers surveyed by Emerson Polling said they would pick Buttigieg to be their 2020 presidential nominee. Overall, Buttigieg placed third behind Former Vice President Joe Biden, at 25 percent, and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), at 24 percent. The only other candidate to receive double-digit support was Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), who was the choice for 10 percent of respondents.

NEW YORK — Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand on Sunday called President Donald Trump a "coward" who "punches down" and says that he is "tearing apart the moral fabric of our country." Gillibrand also urged the full release of special counsel Robert Mueller´s report in the Russia investigation, stressing that "nobody in this country, not even the president, is above the law, or immune from accountability." Attorney General William Barr was expected to release a summary of principal conclusions as soon as Sunday, but Democrats want to see the full details.

President Donald Trump‘s first reaction to Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s findings, which were revealed in a summary on Sunday by the attorney general, came via tweet.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., vowed to take the fight over getting special counsel Robert Mueller’s full report released to the public all the way to the Supreme Court. In an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, Nadler said House Democrats are poised to issue subpoenas and would “absolutely” take the matter to the high court if necessary. “We´ll try to negotiate. We´ll try everything else first, but if we have to, yes, we will certainly issue subpoenas to get that information,” Nadler said. When asked how long he would give the Justice Department

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said Sunday that special counsel Robert Mueller made “a mistake” by not interviewing President Donald Trump as part of his investigation into Russia´s election interference. “I’ve said this all along: It was a mistake to rely on written responses by the president,” Schiff told host George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week,” as those premeditated answers to prosecutors’ queries are “generally more what the lawyer has to say than what the individual has to say. “I can certainly understand why the lawyers like [Trump attorney Rudy] Giuliani were fighting this because the president is someone

Everyone has a plan until you get punched in the mouth. For the Left, their allies in the media, and the Democratic Party, the drumming has been relentless, so severe that dental records might have to be used to identify their bashed in political personas. For two years, these anti-Trump forces said President Trump, his campaign, and the Kremlin colluded to tilt the 2016 election. They thought he was a Putin asset—all of this unadulterated crap that was backed up with zero evidence. Half the country knew this claim was trash. Half didn’t in a pathetic way to cope

The Electoral College may be ‘medieval’
— but it’s a bulwark of our democracy

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has reignited the debate over the Electoral College — she wants to get rid of it, naturally. I say “reignited” because this is a very old argument. But I’m going to skip rehashing the usual — and to my mind, persuasive — arguments in favor of the Electoral College. Arguments against it tend to boil down to two gripes: It’s very old-fashioned, and it’s undemocratic. In 2016, the last time we had this kerfuffle, “Handbook of Electoral System Choice” author Josep Colomer wrote in The Washington Post: “The US electoral college is a medieval relic

Decades after Atlanta child murders, families
hope for a breakthrough in new review of evidence

Posted By: NorthernDog- 3/22/2019 8:10:15     Post Reply
For decades, Catherine Leach has never accepted the official explanation about who was behind the series of killings in Atlanta that terrorized the city and left her teenage son dead. Her 13-year-old son, Curtis Walker, was one of 29 mostly black children who were killed from 1979 to 1981 in a spate of crimes that became known as the Atlanta child murders. During those tense three years, children vanished, only to have their bodies turn up days later, with many of them having been strangled. The killings haunted Atlanta and brought grief to families, but also festered racial suspicions.

Florida, with its plentiful beaches, warm weather, and lack of a state income tax, is the most popular destination for older adults in the U.S. But some who have lived in the Sunshine State for years are moving in the opposite direction. As damaging storms and other effects of climate change have hit Florida particularly hard in the past few years, some older adults living there have become concerned about their safety and their ability to enjoy retirement. So they’re fleeing this otherwise balmy state. About 52,630 people ages 65 and over left Florida in 2017, versus 48,174 in

NASHVILLE, TENN. — Since losing the race for Georgia governor, Stacey Abrams has trekked to England to speak to college students and traveled across Georgia on a “thank-you tour.” She’s hawked her book at a campus in Nashville, the Gramercy Theatre in New York and a conference of lesbian tech leaders in San Francisco. She’s appeared on a Super Bowl ad with a Republican, journeyed on MARTA trains to promote Gwinnett County’s transit referendum, hit the late-night talk show circuit and drawn huge crowds to podcast tapings. She’s delivered the State of the Union Democratic response, dined with presidential contenders

2020 Election: Stacey Abrams would

The apparent scoop du jour is that ex-VP Joe Biden is set to announce his bid with his running mate already picked out: former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Suggestions for his VP thus far have been a who’s-who of the current field of competition for the nomination, including Harris and O’Rourke. Abrams possibly becoming The Chosen One is somewhat surprising, because her star has only so recently begun its ascendency — but not too surprising, because of her fierce intellect, warm demeanor and popularity. Stacey Abrams exudes good sense and kindness, delivered with impeccable poise: that’s the impression most

Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Minnesota Democrat dogged by allegations of anti-Semitism, told Muslims in a speech Saturday to “raise hell” and “make people uncomfortable” in defense of their rights. As hundreds of pro-Israel protesters rallied outside, Ms. Omar said U.S. Muslims should confront discrimination in her keynote speech at a fundraiser hosted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations of Greater Los Angeles in Woodland Hills, California. “So, to me, I say raise hell.

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s advisers are reportedly asking him to consider pledging to just serve one term in office if he wins his party’s nomination and faces off against President Donald Trump in the general election. (Snip)Biden’s advisers are discussing “a possible pledge to serve only one term” and framing Biden’s 2020 campaign “as a one-time rescue mission for a beleaguered country.” Biden is reportedly “uneasy with the prospect of pledging up front not to seek re-election,” though, “believing that it would make him a lame-duck president before he even takes office and cripple his ability to get anything done.”

Attorney General William Barr on Sunday released the "principal conclusions" of Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s completed Russia probe in a bombshell four-page letter to Capitol Hill lawmakers, which stated definitively that Mueller did not establish evidence that President Trump´s team or any associates of the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia -- "despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign." Mueller´s team specifically looked into two Russian efforts to interfere with the 2016 election -- first, the work by a Russian organization, the Internet Research Agency (IRA), to "conduct disinformation and social media operations"

Is this really from today, not from the campaign trail in Texas last year? I can’t believe any Democrat would have the stones to double down on collusion the morning after we find out that not only won’t Trump be indicted for conspiring with Russia, none of his inner circle will either.(tweet)Yes, right, we haven’t seen the report yet and so it’s possible that Mueller believes Trump conspired with Russia but declined to indict him due to the DOJ policy that prevents sitting presidents from being formally charged.

The San Antonio City Council has rejected the inclusion of Chick-fil-A from the new Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement for the San Antonio International Airport. The city has banned the chicken chain from setting up shop in the airport due to the company’s alleged ‘legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.’ In a statement, a rep for Chick-fil-A said they would ‘still welcome the opportunity to have a thoughtful dialogue with the city council.’ Wayfarers passing through San Antonio International Airport will be out of luck if they’re craving Chick-fil-A’s crispy chicken or waffle fries, as the city council has banned

Now that special counsel Robert Mueller has completed his investigation, it is tempting to breathe a sigh of relief and assume that our long national nightmare is over. Resist the temptation, the assumption is false. We are not close to the end. Not by a long shot. In fact, I believe the last two years, as traumatic as they were, will prove to be the easier part of the nightmare, because Mueller dealt only with whether Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign conspired with Russia to swing the election. Based on what we know so far, especially that no more indictments are coming,
