The veteran Iowa Democratic strategist is unaffiliated with any of the 2020 presidential campaigns, but he’s paying close attention. Such close attention that he sat through speeches from 13 candidates, stretching across six hours, last Friday night at the state party’s annual dinner, if you can call something held in a basketball arena and attended by more than 13,000 people a dinner. One image from the long night stunned him. “There were sections of seats designated for each of the campaigns, and Joe Biden’s was nearly empty,” the strategist says. “It felt like watching the end of the Biden campaign.”

What impeachment does is effectively knock Biden out of the race. Because you cannot talk about investigating Ukraine without talking about what Biden bragged about doing. Supposedly the most "electable" dem, certainly the most well known.. Why would they want to talk about Biden's Ukraine fiasco? Because in six months there will be no front runner and Hillary will be asked to step in.

AURORA, Colo. – Aurora’s race for mayor could come down to several hundred ballots with signature discrepancies. Results posted Thursday afternoon on the Colorado Secretary of State website show former U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman with 26,201 votes and Omar Montgomery with 25,928 votes. Coffman’s 273 vote lead is above the threshold for an automatic recount, but that could change. Coffman’s campaign told CBS4 there are approximately 550 Aurora ballots in Arapahoe County and 100 Aurora ballots in Adams County with signature discrepancies. The clerk’s offices in both counties have until Wednesday at noon to cure those ballots, which could affect

Democrats who ran on newly-progressive platforms, like the Green New Deal, and made major gains in the Virginia state government on Tuesday credit those approaches as part of the reason for their successes at the close of expensive and ultra-competitive races. Democratic proponents and activists argue that a party-wide adoption of the state's Green New Deal plan helped the party flip six seats in the state's House of Delegates and two in the Senate. The Virginia Democratic Party rolled out its support for the plan in September in the run-up to the election. Similar to the Green New Deal legislation

The book apparently isn't shut on Aaron Hernandez's transgressions. A new book by investigative journalist Dylan Howard titled "Aaron Hernandez's Killing Fields" suggests the New England Patriots tight end -- who was convicted of one murder and acquitted in a double-murder case -- may be tied to a fourth murder. The revelation comes from Hernandez's former prison cellmate, Kyle Kennedy, who told Howard in an exclusive interview for the book that Hernandez would brag to Kennedy about his involvement in four murders. "[Aaron] always used to tell me he had four murders," Kennedy told Howard, via Radaronline. "He would just always, all

The fate of home prices in real-estate markets that have a high risk of being affected by climate change could come down to how many local residents actually believe in climate change. (Snip) Having a higher concentration of people who deny climate change will cause home prices to be higher in at-risk areas, the study found. Homes that are projected to be underwater due to climate change sold for 7% more in “denier” neighborhoods as compared with “believer” neighborhoods.

A deadly night of "revenge" by organized crime, filled with shootings and burned bodies and buses, struck Juárez on Tuesday. The chaos was the latest wave in increased violence in the Mexican border city, where daily drug-related murders are routine and more than 1,200 people have been killed this year. Juárez Mayor Armando Cabada said the attacks were retaliation by criminals for an impending prison search. The attacks were intended as a distraction by the Mexicles gang from a search planned to begin at midnight Wednesday at the Cereso No. 3 prison in Juárez, Chihuahua law enforcement authorities said at

The paper, which features more than 11,000 scientist signatories from 153 countries, was authored by scientists from the University of Sydney, Oregon State University, the University of Cape Town and Tufts University.

Republican Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves won the race for Mississippi governor Tuesday night, defeating Democratic Attorney General Jim Hood. Republicans were on track Tuesday to control all statewide elected offices in Mississippi and are expected to maintain super-majority control of the Legislature. In incomplete and unofficial results, Reeves led Hood on Tuesday night 53% to 45%. Hood conceded the race at about 10:30 p.m., telling supporters, "We've run a good race. I appreciate your support, and we've had fun." Hood reiterated a campaign theme, that he ran to try to help "the least among us." Reeves outspent Hood two-to-one

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump loses in a hypothetical matchup with all of the leading candidates for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, according to the results of a Washington Post-ABC News poll released Tuesday. Trump – with a job approval rating twenty percentage points lower than his disapproval rating of 58% – trailed by sizable margins against former Vice President Joe Biden (56%-39%); Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts (54%-39%); Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont (56%-39%), South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg (52%-41%) and Sen. Kamala Harris of California (52%-41%).

Former megachurch pastor and evangelical author Joshua Harris said in a recent interview that he believes some of the massive support President Trump has enjoyed from the evangelical community has been “incredibly damaging to the Gospel and to the church.” Harris, an influential evangelical teacher and writer during the late 1990s and up until he announced he'd abandoned his faith earlier this year, added that having "a leader like Trump I think is in itself part of the indictment" of Christians. Evangelicals have been staunch supporters of Trump since his 2016 election, with his job approval higher than average among

Rallies and events were staged across Iran Monday to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the start of what would last for 444 days and be known as the Iran hostage crisis. Amid new tensions between Tehran and the United States, demonstrations nationwide marked the Iran's National Day of Protest against Global Arrogance. The demonstrators chanted slogans against the United States and Israel and set their flags on fire. In Tehran, students and activists gathered outside the former U.S. Embassy, where on Nov. 4, 1979, a group of students stormed the building and took dozens of U.S. State Department workers hostage.

Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg on Friday released a set of economic proposals that includes free public college for people living in households that make less than $100,000 per year. Under Mr. Buttigieg’s plan, families of college students that earn up to $100,000 wouldn’t pay any public college tuition. Those making between $100,000 and $150,000 would receive reduced tuition benefits. That’s a contrast to proposals from 2020 candidates such as Sens. Bernard Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who want to make public colleges and universities tuition-free for everyone. Mr. Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, also wants

Lieutenant colonel Alexander Vindman was reportedly reprimanded by a superior when it became known that he repeatedly made fun of Americans; American culture; and, as he said, "Americans not being educated or worldly." He did this in front of foreign diplomats, constantly. No wonder he remained an Obama loyalist and has tried to undercut President Trump. After all, Obama considered himself first and foremost "a citizen of the world" and did not find anything exceptional in America in and of itself. President Trump loves America and is representative of a patriotic heartland mindset. After all, Trump believes in America first.

On Thursday, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he would run to retake his U.S. Senate seat next year. If he wins the Republican primary, he will face Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.), who defeated a scandal-plagued Roy Moore in the 2017 special election to fill the seat after Sessions joined the Trump administration. Fox News host Tucker Carlson began his show by asking Sessions point-blank: "Are you running for Senate?" "Yes, we'll file our papers tomorrow," Sessions replied. Sessions resigned his Senate seat and was confirmed as Attorney General in February 2017.

In his new book and in the periodical he founded, La Repubblica, Eugenio Scalfari, a long-time friend of Pope Francis and frequent papal interviewer, claims that the Pope told him that Jesus Christ did not rise bodily from the dead but "in the semblance of a spirit." This notion is a contradiction of Church teaching and the Gospels. In the Catechism of the Catholic Church, section 645, it states, " By means of touch and the sharing of a meal, the risen Jesus establishes direct contact with his disciples. He invites them in this way to recognize that he is not a

Multiple forms of socialism, from hard Stalinism to European redistribution, continue to fail. Russia and China are still struggling with the legacy of genocidal communism. Eastern Europe still suffers after decades of Soviet-imposed socialist chaos. Cuba, Nicaragua, North Korea and Venezuela are unfree, poor and failed states.(Snip) The soft-socialist European Union countries are stagnant and mostly dependent on the U.S. military for their protection. In contrast, current American deregulation, tax cuts and incentives, and record energy production have given the United States the strongest economy in the world.(Snip)Why do polls show that a majority of American millennials have a favorable view of socialism?

Like many Republican Trump voters, I rue the loss from the president’s inner circle of such wise advisers as John Bolton and John Kelly, but I think that two extraordinary recent speeches by Attorney General William Barr and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo amply refute my esteemed friend Peggy Noonan’s weekend charge that the president’s management style has left him surrounded by only “a second-string, ragtag, unled army” of lieutenants. You would have to look back years to find such plainspoken foreign policy wisdom as Pompeo showed in his Hudson Institute speech on China last week, and surely few government officials since Lincoln have given speeches of such profundity

"I'd argue that we should reassess the reality of what NATO is in the light of the commitment of the United States."

Who knew gingerbread had genitals? The Tannery cafe in New Zealand has taken the sex out of gingerbread men, instead offering customers the redundantly titled “GingerBread Gender Neutral Person” cookies this holiday season. The Auckland, New Zealand, eatery is peddling their P.C. Christmas biscuits for $2.50.Andre Cettina, owner of the Tannery, told Stuff that the more “inclusive” option was inspired by a customer who asked why the vaguely human-shaped treats weren’t called “gingerbread people”? Cettina says he decided to make the switch in October as a joke — but it has yielded a positive reaction.
