Almost a year after President Donald Trump urged voters to reject Mark Sanford, the former South Carolina congressman is considering a Republican presidential run of his own against Trump in 2020. Sanford, in an interview Tuesday with The Post and Courier, confirmed he will take the next month to formulate a potential run against Trump as a way of pushing a national debate about America’s mounting debt, deficit and government spending. He would run as a Republican.

#2, I have to respectfully disagree. After he disappeared (while in office as (was it Governor?) !) on his extended tryst with his new mistress, his mother is probably ashamed of him. The only sure vote is his own, and the possible vote is his mistress...... IF she still likes him.

Mark Sanford? The former governor of South Carolina that went AWOL so he could spend more time with his mistress instead of his wife and children? Even his mistress told him to go home in the end. Is this the best the NeverTrump faction can come up with? Pathetic! This is a blessing for Trump. He can hang Mark Sanford all over the NeverTrumpers.

Bernie Sanders targets 'institutional

Declaring the criminal justice system ruined by pervasive racism and “corporate profiteering,” Sen. Bernard Sanders proposed a massive overhaul Sunday that would free many drug convicts, abolish the death penalty and solitary confinement, and promote an unarmed “civilian corps” to replace the police for lower-level calls. The Sanders campaign said the goal is to keep people out of prisons in the first place, with a goal of cutting the incarcerated population in half. For those who still land behind bars, he called for better conditions with a focus on helping them stay connected to society and to reintegrate faster when they are released. Mr. Sanders announced the plan

A four-star general, who has been accused without evidence of sexual assault, repeatedly implored the accuser to get mental health help months before she began her campaign against him and other top brass in the office. That’s according to a March 2018 personal counseling statement by Air Force Gen. John Hyten that was included in a Department of Defense Inspector General investigation. Col. Kathryn Spletstoser has attempted to derail the nomination of the general to the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff by privately and publicly claiming without evidence that he sexually assaulted her.

Joe Biden, 76, has been getting heaps of attention for his verbal gaffes. Alas, voters should worry about a far bigger problem: It’s impossible to know what he stands for. Yes, some of his slip-ups can be head-scratching. Democrats choose “truth over facts,” he said. Huh? The kids from the Parkland high-school shooting — which happened after he left office — “came to see me when I was vice president.” He lamented “the tragic events in Houston” and “Michigan” rather than El Paso and Dayton. He warned against giving President Trump “eight more years” and told backers to “go to Joe 30330,” instead of texting him. And that’s just recently.

Often the vulnerability of a politician is reflected by the desperate caliber of their spin. When a campaign can’t even put together a convincing case with cherry-picked evidence, it’s easy to conclude that their argument doesn’t pass the smell test. Elizabeth Warren, trying to deflect widespread worries that she’d be the Democratic Party’s riskiest best to take on President Trump, is the latest example of a candidate without a plan to address her biggest problem. In a New York Times story on the subject, Warren’s campaign offered two arguments as to why she’d be a formidable challenger against Trump. Her team has pointed to her hotly contested victory

Dangerous lines are being crossed, lives are being lost, and needed authority and protections are being weakened. During last week's shootout and standoff in Philadelphia in which six police officers were wounded, some of the bystanders were observed openly insulting the police who were putting their lives on the line to subdue the suspect.

Jeffrey Epstein, inmate 76318-054, hated his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center. It was cramped, dank and infested with vermin, so Mr. Epstein, long accustomed to using his wealth to play by his own rules, devised a way out. He paid numerous lawyers to visit the jail for as many as 12 hours a day, giving him the right to see them in a private meeting room. Mr. Epstein was there for so long that he often appeared bored, sitting in silence with his lawyers, according to people who saw the meetings. While they were there, he and his entourage regularly emptied the two vending machines of drinks and snacks.

After recasting his presidential candidacy in urgent terms during a speech in El Paso on Thursday, Beto O’Rourke, the former congressman from the Texas border city, will visit two sites in Oklahoma on Monday to call attention to domestic terrorism. He is expected to visit the memorial site of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and the Greenwood District of Tulsa, Oklahoma, where in 1921 white citizens attacked black residents and businesses in one of the worst episodes of racial violence in American history. The trip is part of an effort from the Texas Democrat to diversify his campaign stops beyond just the early primary states

In the week after earning plaudits for a powerful speech calling on the nation’s better angels to combat racism and hate and fight for the soul of America, former Vice President Joe Biden has stumbled into a danger zone with gaffes and misstatements that could cost him the Democratic nomination. Questions about his fitness to prevail in the grueling next nine months -- let alone the 14 till the general election -- have given progressives a huge opening, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren surging in popularity and momentum. And that is grim news for the Democratic Party. As Biden creates doubts about his viability, there is no one else

I’m tired of everyone being outraged, getting worked up over the latest news cycle only to forget about it two hours later.

Is Robert Francis O'Rourke actually running for president? Don't misunderstand me. I am fully aware that he remains, nominally, one of the 400 different generic white guy moderates currently seeking the Democratic nomination. (Actually, make that 399: John Hickenlooper's graceful exit on Tuesday via YouTube has narrowed the field slightly.) What I am asking is whether he actually wants to win. I am wondering because Beto recently announced that he will not be campaigning in Iowa or New Hampshire, the states in which the earliest of these things called "primary contests" are held. (You need to win those, you see, in order to become the your party's nominee.)

Torres, who served in 2008 and 2009, was referring to a Tuesday shooting in San Antonio, Texas at an ICE office building, and at another facility where an ICE contractor was located. There was also an incident in Tacoma, Washington in July where an Antifa protester threw incendiary devices at an ICE building and started setting cars on fire. He was ultimately shot and killed by state police officers. "It's horrific. It's disgusting.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker has signed a law allowing Illinois to take its own action to slow climate change. The Democrat approved legislation this week that repeals the Kyoto Protocol Act of 1998. It limited state action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The U.S. withdrew from Kyoto in 2001. But Illinois had put it into state law so it was bound by rules the federal government no longer intended to follow. Naperville Democratic Sen. Laura Ellman says it sends a message that "Illinois is ready to get serious about climate change." The law she and Evanston Democratic Rep. Robyn Gabel sponsored takes effect Jan. 1.

This is predicated on them being an important ally in the region, and the only democracy in the Middle East. But, denying a visit to duly elected members of Congress is not consistent with being an ally.”
