On paper, Joe Biden appears to be maintaining a modest, if wobbly lead for the Democrats’ presidential nomination this year. He leads nationally among Democrats, as he has for the last year, even before his April announcement. Biden is ahead of the relentless Sen. Bernie Sanders nationally, a margin that could evaporate without wins. However, this isn’t a national race yet. It’s a four-state warm-up sprint that has

Who will Trump beat in November? A known crook or a known socialist? I can't decide which one will be easier.

Crazy, Old Joe only campaigns sparingly right now, and still makes goofy pronouncements almost daily. I cannot imagine him on the campaign trail for days on end, from early morning to late at night. He'll be a babbling idiot.

Relax, Malcolm, and quit clutching your pearls. There are only 280 days until the election. Forth weeks is enough time to have a baby, not a hissy fit.

What I can't visualize is these two crooked old geezers in a sprint, it's more like a hobble to the bathroom. Both are crooks and both would use the presidency to further enrich themselves and their families. Bernie would have four homes, much like Russian dachas on the Volga, while he imposed fifty percent taxes on the rest of the country as the first step to taking everything. His wife is also a known liar and thief. Biden already has tens of millions and would simply be used by the democrats to advance every radical and unconstitutional whim on their list. After a few years he wouldn't even remember that he was the President.

Once upon a time, news in these United States was, well, new. And people wanted to know the latest happenings. Now, however, much of the nation’s news and the people in it — even what they end up saying during these events — are pretty predictable. That’s in large part because so many Americans have fallen into ruts of partisan thinking that aren’t really thinking at all, just safe recitations of talking points that require no listening or manners. Take this impeachment business, please. Months before

Judging by the huge sums of money Americans are forking over to politicians this cycle, they are very much into the 2020 presidential cycle, even before any primary votes are cast or counted. [Snip] As the Iowa caucuses loom on Feb. 3, the remaining contenders are sucking up vast amounts of smaller donations, indicating grassroots enthusiasm but also fueling what could well be an extended and divisive campaign with more survivors fighting longer than usual. Lengthy campaigns are great for candidate hopes and television revenues. But they seriously curtail the time left for Democrats to rally behind the actual nominee as

Let’s examine the impact so far of what was widely touted as a historic impeachment of President Donald Trump: His job approval is back at its highest level since taking office 1,068 long days ago, up six points since the House began impeachment. Donations to help the billionaire’s reelection bid continue at a record pace. Polling support for impeachment and removal from office, which are wildly popular on the Democratic left, has slid to minority support nationally in most surveys. House support for impeaching the president remains

Joe Biden, who is 77 years old now, made it clear the other day he has no plans to serve only four years if elected president. “I don’t have plans on one term,” said Biden, who would be 82 at the end of it.

While much of the nation’s political, media and public attention was focused on House Democrats’ impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, “U.S. military officials” told The Wall Street Journal the White House was considering dispatching up to 14,000 additional troops to the Middle East. In normal news cycles when a president is not facing a historic impeachment by Congress, the possibility of such a substantial military deployment would be a major event with all the costs and dangers inherent in such movements of lethal might into turbulent areas. The addition of that many personnel would essentially double the deployment of U.S. troops to

Quietly, with little public notice, Americans seem to be changing their standards for judging presidential candidates as people and as potential chief executives, at least the older ones. Gaffes, health issues, behavioral traits do not have the same significance they once did. In fact, such faults and missteps seem to glide right on by voters’ consciousness like a leaf on a stream. And this holds true regardless of party. Examples of such statements or behavior by

Looks like Joe Biden is taking the Democratic primary campaign seriously for a change. David Axelrod, who worked closely with the ex-vice president during the Obama administration and both campaigns, says Biden’s handlers have had “him in the candidate-protection program.” 1) He’s old. And 2) You may recall Biden is prone to gaffes, like earlier this fall when he asked an Iowa audience how the infrastructure was holding up there in Ohio. But finally this weekend, 32 weeks after he launched his campaign and just nine weeks before the Iowa caucuses, Biden

Just gonna lay this right out front: I’m so sick of investigations in public life. Everyone is so busy investigating just about everything these days that they’re not getting their regular work done.

Thanks to a 4-hour documentary about herself, which premiered to great Progressive buzz at the Sundance Film Festival, Hillary’s in the news again. More than that, she’s doing so at a time when Democrats are panicking about Bernie’s increasing lead in New Hampshire and the general pressure he’s putting on “mainstream” candidate Joe Biden. Sane Democrats strongly suspect that, while Bernie’s manna for the base, most Americans are not going to vote for a candidate who still adores socialism despite the Gulags, the reeducation camps, and those nasty National Socialist gas chambers. Because of the buzz, a scrubbed, buffed, injected, stretched,

PARK CITY, Utah — Since losing the 2016 election to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton has released a memoir about that defeat, launched a political action committee and penned another book about “gutsy women” with her daughter, Chelsea. But Clinton’s most prominent return to the public eye has come at the Sundance Film Festival, where the former Secretary of State unveiled a candid four-hour documentary series, “Hillary.” Clinton is aware that some thought she would slink away after 2016. “Yes, they did, didn’t they?” Clinton said in an interview in Park City. “Well, that was never an option.” Nanette Burstein’s “Hillary,” which Hulu

Joe Biden suggested on Tuesday that the Obamas would be appointed to high office if he were elected in 2020, telling voters the former first lady could be his running mate, while her husband was destined for the Supreme Court, provided he wanted the appointment. The former vice president made the promise during a campaign town hall in Iowa, where he was asked by a voter if he would consider appointing Obama to the Supreme Court. “Yeah, I would, but I don’t think he’d do it,” Biden said in response. “He’d be a great Supreme Court justice.” When the voters clarified that he had not stipulated which member

On impeachment, Mitt Romney has thrown a spanner in the works. What looked like a speedy scrapping of the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, premised on Democrats beclowning themselves, is now on hold. Romney says that John Bolton's "bombshell" about a supposed Ukrainian aid-for-investigation quid pro quo is so significant it merits calling Bolton as a witness in the Senate impeachment trial, just as Democrats have been calling for, though not enough to call him in at the House. According to the Associated Press: WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s Mitt Romney’s big moment, again. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has for a year been a

You’ve got to hand it to the Democrats -- they can hold their caucus together for the flimsiest of causes. The GOP, though, has all these RINOs who have to establish their independence; they’re willing to break party unity when it serves their own ambitions. Three senators – Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, and Mitt Romney of Utah – are rumored to be willing for witnesses to be called in the impeachment trial now underway in the Senate. Obviously, such a slowdown benefits the Democrats, who want the impeachment to headline news reports as long as possible.

If this were summer, the crowd that buzzed Tuesday around the Wildwood boardwalk — with provocative T-shirts and slogans, flashes of defiant patriotism, and generally elevated exuberance just to be there — might have simply blended in with the town’s usual Jersey Shore vibe.

I guess I should say something. For five years my office at AEI was right next to John Bolton. Lately I’ve been having fun with this photo suggesting I can do “hearsay” with the best of Adam Schiff’s witnesses (that is, “making stuff up”). I can’t say I got to know Bolton very well, but as early risers we were often the first people in the office before well before 7 am on many days, so I’d sometimes stop to chat over coffee and we’d joke about things. And he was helpful to me several times when I needed some inside information on how the UN’s climate change circus

Des Moines, Iowa—Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has announced a plan to prevent, contain and treat infectious diseases as a new viral illness spreads in China. The Massachusetts senator on Tuesday unveiled a plan that includes fully funding the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s pandemic prevention and response programs. The agency has faced stiff budget cuts under President Donald Trump, including to emergency funds and global health programs that were established following West Africa’s Ebola epidemic in 2014. “Like so much else, Trump’s approach to keeping us safe from disease outbreaks is a mess,” Warren wrote in an online post announcing the plan.

The Democrat-led House is set next week to vote on legislation to override the 27 states that have given workers a right to work without being forced to join a union or to give it a cut of their paycheck. House Education and Labor Committee Chairman Bobby Scott, a Virginia Democrat, argued that such "right-to-work" laws are unfair to unions and the workers that back collective bargaining, necessitating his bill, the Protecting the Right to Organize Act. “Under current law, unions are required to negotiate on behalf of all employees, regardless if they belong to the union or not," Scott told the Washington Examiner.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he does not have the votes to stop witnesses from appearing in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump. The Kentucky Senator reportedly made the remarks in a private Republican meeting. Several senators also expressed willingness to move on from the Senate trial to a final vote. NEWS -- McConnell told his members that he did not yet have enough votes to be able to kill the witness vote, expected Friday, according to people familiar. Yet several 2020ers spoke, saying they're ready to move on to final vote, move on from the trial. — Seung Min Kim (@seungminkim) January 28, 2020
