I saw a headline that read, "Conservative Joe Walsh thinks any democrat would be better than Trump." First of all, anyone who believes that, isn't a conservative, and no, any democrat would certainly NOT be better than Trump.

Joe has decided to go back to his true love of music...because every time he tries to get out , they drag me back in. He was such a longshot, that if he was a race horse, he would be headed for the glue factory. Good choice Joe and good luck getting the band back together.

This is merely clearing the field. The Dump Trump crowd doesn't need a polemicist in the field. They need a "moderate", and the best they can come up with now is Bill Weld. He may futilely continue on, but not for long. His campaign staff was assembled for Mitt...watch for a third-party bid. God will have told him, I'm sure.

Gee golly, 97% of Iowa Republican caucus member selected Trump but Joe Walsh just knows they are wrong. 94% of Republicans support Trump (Gallup) but Walsh insists Trump is the "greatest threat to this country right now". I can see the problem clearly. Joe Walsh is delusional.

The ONLY important question here is, 'how much money did this freak end up with?' Did he stop while he had money left in his campaign fund or will he do what the rats do and stiff everyone when they fold their campaigns? This former congressman/radio host was only in it to score some bucks one way or another.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews stepped too far outside the liberal box in a rant on socialism that ignited social media’s cancel culture.Matthews unloaded on the word “socialism,” saying he has an “attitude” about the term and proceeded to stun the MSNBC panel and viewers with his passionate warning to Democrats about supporting 2020 candidates who promote the ideology.

Many media observers will recall the New York Times’ response to Donald Trump’s unexpected victory in 2016. In their subtle, tacit admission that the paper had covered the election with some bias, publisher Arthur Sulzberger, Jr. and editor Dean Baquet promised to “rededicate” themselves to the fundamental mission of the Times and to bring “fairness” to their coverage.Other mainstream news outlets and journalists issued similar mea culpas. Just about all of them had treated Trump’s campaign and supporters with an attitude of spiteful hilarity. The great irony in the media’s hatred, of course, is that his rise would not have been possible without them and their vain attempt to hijack

In 2018, Bean joined Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow for a wide-ranging, hour-long interview.Bean and Marlow discussed how students soaking up leftist indoctrination on college campuses today will “become the CEOs and the mayors of cities and governors and, ultimately, presidents,” and Bean warned how Hollywood communists blacklisting conservatives and non-communists in the 1950s (which Bean suffered under and survived) pales in comparison to what the kind of censorship now being imposed by tech companies and mega-corporations.

'I do believe we're a party at risk if we nominate someone who's never held an office higher than mayor of South Bend, Indiana,' Biden told a crowd in Manchester, gathered at the Rex Theatre Saturday afternoon. The Biden campaign also put out a new ad, which put the two candidates' records side-by-side, and was tougher on Buttigieg than the digs the former veep was deploying onstage.

The caption for the video reads “Powerful American Stories Ripped To Shreds By Nancy Pelosi.” Trump supporters would see the point the video makes – that Pelosi ripped up a speech that included the stories of many honorable Americans because she hates Trump. Any politician would do the same for an attack ad. Trump’s speech contained a lot of positive information and Pelosi ripped it up, claiming it was full of lies.

Immigration experts and House Republicans are balking at the New Way Forward Act, a Democratic bill that is being described as an embrace of “open borders” and likely to be the most “radical” legislation ever introduced in history. Democratic Illinois Rep. Jesús García, along with several other progressive House members, introduced the New Way Forward Act in December 2019, to seemingly little fanfare. The bill, among many things, calls for the decriminalization of illegal immigration, would make it more difficult to deport convicted criminal aliens, empower immigration judges to nullify deportation orders, and also calls for the return of previously deported illegal aliens.
