The Democratic Socialists who launched a full-on assault on the House of Representatives in 2018 are looking at bigger targets for 2022 and 2024, but they still involve the group's most successful candidate to date, Rep. Alexcandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). (Video) According to a report in Axios, "top Democrats" are expecting Ocasio-Cortez to build on the success of the small civil war she's created between factions of the party and launch a campaign to primary one of New York's two Senators, either Sen. Chuck Schumer or Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. Schumer seems the more likely target, according to Axios's sources, particularly given that he often falls

But...doesn't Taco Barbie need to be re-elected in her own district first? People remember how Amazon didn't come, didn't bring 25,000 jobs, didn't lead to the neighborhood opening new businesses to service the increased workforce. What will Taco run on? Or rather, what will she run from?

I hope and pray that AOC does just that - primary Chuckles. He will D.E.S.T.R.O.Y. her! I can't stomach ol' Chuckie Schuma but...he's a breath of fresh air compared to this air-head, mush-mouth, infinitely stupid Ocasio-Cortez! It would be fun, fun, fun to watch Chuckles make kasha varnishkas out of her!

Yep. I knew it. If AOC were to beat out Chuk Schooma for his seat, four years later Miss Taco would run for the Oval Office. This gurl is easily stupid and irresponsible enough to think she has all the skills and experience necessary to lead the world’s strongest military and economic power. The single most patriotic thing Chuk could do for this country would be to squash this this little upstart like a bug.

If AOC were to attain Chuckie's seat she would not have anywhere near the clout that Chuckie wields as leader of the Senate Dems and would be starting at the bottom of that "august" body in terms of seniority and committee assignments. AOC would also have to face the entire state of NY voters in a campaign, not just a hand picked Congressional district which had an incumbent Congresscritter who was lazy and complacent regarding his constituents.

I put NOTHING past the democrats. Gillibrand however has beclowned herself so badly that she would be the easier target.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed a bill into law that allows kids to run lemonade stands without being in fear of being shut down. The law goes into effect in September and prohibits cities and neighborhood associations from implementing rules that block or regulate children trying to sell nonalcoholic drinks such as lemonade on private property, according to the Texas Tribune. Republican state Rep. Matt Krause introduced the bill after police shut down a lemonade stand that was run by two daughters trying to raise money for a Father's Day gift in 2015. The bill was unanimously passed in both chambers and Abbott signed the bill on Monday.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi admitted Democrats are “not even close” to impeaching President Trump. The California Democrat addressed impeachment and other question about Trump in sometimes rambling replies to CNN’s Manu Raju on Tuesday during the Fiscal Summit in Washington hosted by the Peter G. Peterson Foundation. (Video:CNN) Pelosi seemed visibly frustrated by the direction of the questions, often seeming to contradict her own statements. But on the direct question of impeachment, the Democrat was clear – in a still vague way. “It’s not even close in our caucus,” she told Raju. “Why are we speculating on hypotheticals?” she asked. “What we’re doing is winning in court.

OTTUMWA — Former Vice-President Joe Biden hadn’t been speaking for five minutes at his Ottumwa campaign rally when a man in an American flag shirt stood up in the audience. The man shouted questions about Biden’s recent shift on the Hyde Amendment, which bans the use of federal funds for abortions. Biden had long supported the measure, but reversed course five days before his arrival in Ottumwa. The crowd booed. Biden waited. He said he would meet with the man after his speech, if he would end the disruption. “He was very friendly,” Biden said after the rally. “It’s a legitimate question for him to ask.”

On Monday, Politico ran a story alleging that Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao had steered DOT grants to Kentucky to benefit her husband, Kentucky Senator and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Her office fired back, saying that the projects went through the normal protocol and that they were “selectively isolated to misrepresent the work DOT does across the country.” For MSNBC, this was apparently the biggest scandal since Teapot Dome.

Ever since the Mueller Report was released on April 18th, and as America moves closer to the 2020 presidential election, our country is quickly wrenching itself apart along partisan lines. Disturbingly, the media are enthusiastically throwing gasoline on this rift. Liberal journalists are not merely playing the role of partisan commentators. It’s bad enough that they are. Could it be as it appears, that some reporters may have actually colluded with entities at various government agencies throughout the ongoing Russia collusion saga? Indeed the media may be the “enemy of the people.” According to the Washington Examiner and other media outlets,

A subpoena for former White House counsel Don McGahn, who has been blocked by the White House from cooperating, to turn over documents related to Trump’s potential obstruction of justice.

In 1995, Sen.

"As I know you know, but others should know, too, I truly enjoyed working with you when you were attorney general," Biden told Barr, who had served as President George H.W. Bush's attorney general in the early 1990s. "You were one of the best I have ever worked with, and there have been a lot of attorneys general since I have been here, and I mean that sincerely."When Biden made that remark,

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg knows firsthand the burden of six-figure student loan debt. He and his husband, Chasten, are far from alone, though, and their personal college indebtedness is helping to keep the issue on the national stage. With loans totaling more than $130,000, they are among the 43 million people in the United States who owe federal student loan debt. The debtors are so numerous and the total debt so high — more than $1.447 trillion, according to federal statistics — that several of the Democratic candidates have made major policy proposals to address the crisis.

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton believes President Trump's administration is a gateway to fascism.

Her remarks came with a specific reference to former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright's new book, Fascism: A Warning.

This summer, PBS Kids premiered an episode of the children's show Arthur in which a teacher, Mr. Ratburn, "marries" another male character. Even before this premiere, PBS was already infusing the LGBT agenda into its programming. In between its shows, a happy song about families included an image of two dads with a baby and lyrics to that effect. Disney and other children's stations long ago jumped onto the LGBT bandwagon with their line-up. As a Guardian headline noted in 2016, "From Nickelodeon to Disney: Children's TV leads the way for LGBT characters," with same-sex unions featuring prominently in shows. It is not just television,

California wants to look after its people, so it keeps expanding its social safety net. It also wants to welcome all comers and so embraces illegal immigrants and protects them in sanctuary cities. To see how this is working out, visit Skid Row in L.A. or neighborhoods in San Francisco or elsewhere where homeless camps are spreading. Caring for all Californians is made harder by the state importing as many non-Americans as possible. It's almost incredible, but also entirely characteristic, that California lawmakers have now decided to give healthcare free to nearly 100,000 illegal immigrants aged 19 to 25.

Lake Erie and Lake Superior — two of the five that make up the Great Lakes — broke records for water levels this May. Lakes Michigan and Huron could follow suit. Naturally, climate change is getting the blame. “We are undoubtedly observing the effects of a warming climate in the Great Lakes,” says Richard Rood, a University of Michigan climate scientist. But just a few years ago, climate scientists were insisting that a warming climate would cause water levels to decline. In 2008, Science Daily reported on a study that attributed the decline in Great Lakes water levels to global warming.
