Coping with a struggling campaign and facing the reality that he wouldn’t make the stage at next month’s third round of Democratic presidential debates, former two-term Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper ended his long-shot bid for the White House on Thursday. "Today, I’m ending my campaign for president. But I will never stop believing that America can only move forward when we work together," Hickenlooper said in a video released on social media and through email. “A little over six months ago, I announced my run for president. In almost every aspect, this journey has been more exciting and more rewarding

His campaign started with a story about he and his mother seeing Deep Throat together. It went downhill from there.

Running for something else after they'd gotten a little national publicity for running for preezy is why most of these clowns hopped in the car.

I had no idea he was running. Maybe it's just me, but he's a loser for President, so the consolation prize is hey, I'll go be a freakin' senator.

Came to realize that nobody on the planet would take President Hickenlooper seriously. Much like President Buttgig. Maybe half of that (gay) Vegas act Sigfreid and Roy should run. Sigfried Fishbonker for president. The Dems biggest problem is that the Most serious candidate they have is Slow Joe Biden and he may not live until the election.

Former President Barack Obama and Joe Biden have an extremely close relationship, but that reportedly hasn't alleviated concerns Obama has about the former vice president's 2020 campaign. Obama spoke with Biden about the prospect of him running multiple times before the former vice president hopped into the race, and "took pains to cast his doubts about the campaign in personal terms," according to a New York Times report. A person familiar with the exchange told The Times that Obama said to Biden, "You don't have to do this, Joe, you really don't." But Biden responded that he felt he had

WASHINGTON — Senator Elizabeth Warren on Friday proposed a sprawling set of policies relating to Native Americans and indigenous tribes, accusing the federal government of years of neglect and calling for major economic development initiatives and new legal protections that would give tribes more control over criminal justice and development on their land. “As a nation, we are failing in our legal, political, and moral obligations toward tribal governments and indigenous peoples,” Warren wrote in a post on the Medium website. “Washington owes native communities respect — and so much more.” Warren proposed wholesale changes in the way the federal

BERLIN, N.H. — They want fundamental change: single-payer health care, debt-free college, environmental protections and the end of big money in politics. But as liberal voters size up the two leading candidates running on those values — Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren — one question is impossible to avoid: Can either one beat President Donald Trump? Even some of the most passionate liberals are not sure Sanders or Warren is up to the task, knowing that Trump will use anything he can to tear them down: age, gender, personal background and, of course, their progressive plans to transform health care and the U.S.

Don’t be lulled by a quiet June and July, the real Atlantic hurricane season is about to kick off. The hurricane season runs from June 1 to the end of November. But the next six weeks -- “the season within a season” -- is regularly the most dangerous and active time for storms to develop in the Atlantic, said Dennis Feltgen, spokesman for the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Only two named storms have developed in the Atlantic so far this year. Dry, dusty air from Africa’s Sahara robbed potential storms of moisture, and wind shear spurred by the El

Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact:
A bad deal, 80 years ago

Some 80 years ago, on Aug. 23, 1939, Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union signed the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, formally known as the Treaty of non-aggression between Germany and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The world was shocked — and terrified — by the agreement. Western democracies of the 1930s had counted on the huge resources of Communist Russia, and its hostility to the Nazis, to serve as a brake on Adolf Hitler’s Western ambitions. Great Britain and the other Western European democracies had assumed that the Nazis would never invade them as long as a hostile Soviet Union threatened

More details have come out on the death of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who was found dead in his jail cell at Manhattan Correctional Center on Saturday. The Associated Press reports one of the two people who were on duty at the jail and in charge of watching Epstein was not a correctional officer. With shortages of trained correctional officers in some federal prisons, they have resorted to using clerical workers and teachers. Jail policy called for guards to check Epstein every 30 minutes after he reportedly attempted to commit suicide a few weeks prior. Investigators found the checks weren’t

NEW YORK – At least three people were violently mugged early this morning in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The first attack happened on Ross Street, the second on Wythe Place and a third on Clymer Street. The suspects allegedly struck three Hasidic Jews, between the ages of 56 and 71, within an hour. Friends told CBS2’s Christina Fan the men were walking to synagogue or work when the suspects ambushed them. Now, the NYPD’s Hate Crimes unit is on the case. “Obviously, might just be a run-of-the-mill mugging with the attempt as a bias crime, knowing that these people – just like myself, I

DES MOINES, Iowa — The chant — "2 cents, 2 cents, 2 cents" — started in the back of a crowd that packed sidewalks at the Iowa State Fair. Elizabeth Warren, basking in the spontaneous adulation of her proposed wealth tax, prompted roars with her call for the ultra-wealthy to "pitch in 2 cents so everybody gets a chance to make it." A night before, the Massachusetts senator enjoyed similar treatment when Democrats at a party dinner jumped to their feet — some beginning to dance — at the opening bars of Dolly Parton's "9 to 5," the song that would usher Warren on stage.

Proving once again they're absolutely clueless on firearms, nearly 200 House Democrats have indicated their support for legislation banning all semi-automatic firearms nationwide. They aren't just talking about the dreaded AR-15 here. Every new Glock, outlawed. My dad's old .22 Browning target pistol, which my 13-year-old insists I leave to him in my will, would be among the last of its kind. And -- try not to think about this too hard, or you'll cry -- the Colt 1911 .45, perhaps the American sidearm, would be no more. We'll get revolvers and bolt-action rifles and that's about it.

But that hasn't happened, and now the 26-year-old owner of NH iPhone Repair feels what he calls 'Trumpgret.' The Republican president has done little to address health care issues for a small employer, he said, and the Manchester man remains on edge about how Trump's tariffs could affect his business, which employs fewer than 10 people.

"First of all, the biggest mistake that we have — and it's a trap that gets set by the Right, whether intentionally or unintentionally — is just the frame of asking, 'Is blank racist?'" the New York Democrat explained, arguing the conversation needs to be about racism itself, not the people who ascribe to it.

When it was first reported that pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein had died in a maximum-security prison, supposedly by suicide, the Internet was immediately ablaze with conspiracy theories. That's not so strange considering that several people had warned beforehand that Epstein had dirt on many important people; people who would be well served by his untimely death. An autopsy has now found, the Washington Post reports, that Epstein "sustained multiple breaks in his neck bones, according to two people familiar with the findings." And that's rather... interesting...

Police say Melvin Harris, 40, admitted to beating Leon Armstrong, 26, to death after he attempted to break into the teenage girl's stall at a QuikTrip convenience store bathroom. Harris was waiting for his daughter and her two friends in the store’s parking lot when Armstrong approached his car asking for money. Harris gave him change, then Armstrong walked into the convenience store, police said. Soon after, Harris' daughter and her friends came out of the store and said the man had harassed them, according to a police report.
