The Democratic establishment
keeps picking terrible candidates

After 2016, the Democratic establishment would have been justified in getting out of the business of presidential politics. It swung so strongly behind Hillary Clinton that it discouraged any serious contenders from getting in the race. Her competition was a motley collection of people who didn’t get the message or didn’t care — including a no-hope socialist from Vermont named Bernie Sanders. Because politics abhors a vacuum, Sanders became the anti-Hillary candidate and the leader of a movement that four years later threatens to take over the Democratic Party.

Biden might have made the grade except I don’t think they counted on him having a mental breakdown in public.

Irony abounds when the editor of National Review instructs on how to pick a winner. How did Lowry do in 2016?

Show me one good Marxist Communist. They are all in lockstep in evil towards all people, even their fellow Marxist Communists. Satan already has them and even Satan once he has your soul discards you as you are now among the lost. Satan moves on seeking other suckers who are willing to give/sell their souls for material gains. Matthew 16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

I don't think that is totally true. The DNC doesn't want one who loves America, they want one they can control. I am thinking of more moderate Dems like Jim Webb and a few others like him. But the DNC and Hillary have chased them out of the party at the moment.

#3 Lowry talks of Hillary losing “to a rival who had a 37% approval rating on Election Day…” and can barely call him “President Trump” in the next paragraph. He also talks about Biden running on his rèsumè but never mentions that his old boss doesn’t endorse him. Lowry’s right about one thing though. Dem’s have had lousy candidates in the last two election cycles. (And before that) However, I was struck by the one Asian candidate in the last debate (don’t remember his name and I only saw a short clip) but he said something like “It’s time we stopped blaming all our troubles on President Trump. He’s not the cause and we’re tearing ourselves apart following that line…” Someone like that could be dangerous and might make sense and might be electable…therefore he hasn’t a snowball’s chance.

Swarm Detroit to Keep Dead Voters on Rolls

Liberal groups and high-powered New York attorneys swooped into Detroit this week to help the city fight a lawsuit over its voter roll irregularities, which included thousands of deceased individuals appearing on the rolls. The League of Women Voters of Michigan and its Detroit chapter filed a motion to intervene on behalf of Detroit city clerk Janice Winfrey and Director of Elections George Azzouz. Winfrey and Azzouz were sued in December by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), an election integrity group. The officials had ignored PILF's requests to inspect Detroit's voter registrations after the group discovered thousands of ineligible voters on the city's rolls.
Trump's Economic Numbers Crush
Past Presidents in Reelection Years

A new analysis from Gallup shows that Trump's economic numbers would be the envy of his predecessors, as 61 percent of Americans say they are better off than they were three years ago, "a higher percentage than in prior election years when an incumbent president was running." Only 36 percent say they aren't better off. Which is still significantly better than the 52 percent who said they were not better off in 2012—when Barack Obama was reelected for some reason. It's interesting to see that the perception of the economy is very much tied to party identification. In 2020, 89 percent of Republicans
New Hampshire Takeaways

Now that the New Hampshire results are in — and, oh boy, wait for the Nevada vote count! — there are several takeaways that do not necessarily accord with the mainstream media’s “common wisdom.” 1. Polls Do Not Matter Until the Last Few Weeks of an Election. New Hampshire proves something about polling that I have been writing for years: polls do not matter until elections are within four or fewer weeks. The average person has no idea what in the world is going on. Think of your friends and coworkers. If you have astute friends and work among intelligent people, then just think of the kids

Primped and poised, Siba the standard poodle owned the ring. Even with the crowd at Madison Square Garden chanting for a popular golden retriever, the statuesque Siba strutted off with best in show at the Westminster Kennel Club on Tuesday night. Adorned with black puffs and pompoms, the 3-year-old Siba was the absolute picture of what many see as the epitome of a show dog. Not everyone shared that view. As judge Bob Slay studied Siba in the best-of-seven final ring, a fan shouted out: “No way, Slay, no way!”

MANCHESTER, NH — He was once the presumptive Democratic nominee, but on Tuesday, Joe Biden fled New Hampshire with his tail between his legs — and headed to South Carolina where he watched his dismal results come in. Sensing a humiliating defeat in the Granite State, Biden’s team announced the former vice president was throwing in the towel before the polls had even closed, spending Tuesday evening at a campaign launch party in Columbia, SC, about 1,000 miles away.

A British man who unknowingly infected nearly a dozen others with the deadly coronavirus has come forward. Steve Walsh contracted the virus while on a business trip to Singapore in late January. He then went to a ski resort in the French Alps, where he unwittingly spread the virus to at least 11 others. At least five Britons who stayed at the resort – including a 9-year-old boy – were infected, as were five people in France. He was also connected to at least one case in Spain, the BBC reported. Walsh’s case also prompted French health authorities to test 61 other children and family members at the resort and temporarily

MANCHESTER, NH -- Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont narrowly edged former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg to claim victory in New Hampshire's Democratic presidential primary. But the biggest winner in Tuesday's contest - the first primary in the White House race - may well be Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, who came in a strong third. Klobuchar finished far ahead of Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and former Vice President Joe Biden, who are limping out of New Hampshire facing serious questions about the future of their campaigns. "We love you New Hampshire," Klobuchar stressed in her primary night speech. "Because of you, we are taking this campaign to Nevada.

ROCHESTER, N.H.—Like last week’s muddled Iowa caucus, tomorrow’s New Hampshire primary may reveal as much about the limits of the leading Democratic candidates as it does their strengths. The results from Iowa, polls in New Hampshire, and surveys of Democrats beyond those states all point toward the same conclusion: So far, none of the candidates has built a coalition that reaches broadly across the party. Instead, each is confined to a distinct niche of support that is too narrow to establish a commanding advantage in the race. That could guarantee a lengthy war of attrition for the nomination—and possibly even a brokered convention—as the leading contenders divide the Democratic

DIXVILLE NOTCH, N.H. — Former New York City Michael Bloomberg won the votes of a tiny New Hampshire community that barely hung onto its tradition of being among the first to cast ballots in the presidential primary. Dixville Notch’s five residents cast their ballots just after the stroke of midnight Tuesday in the first 2020 Democratic presidential primary vote in the nation. Bloomberg received three write-in votes, one from a Republican and two from Democrats. The remaining votes went to Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders.

Ahead of the event, Chariton and Jones were interviewing attendees in line outside, but Chariton said he noticed they were being followed by Buttigieg field staffer Julia Fiedler, who went on to "eavesdrop" on interviews, which went on for roughly a half an hour.

DOVER AIR FORCE BASE, Del. — President Donald Trump traveled Monday to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to pay respects to two U.S. soldiers killed Saturday in Afghanistan when a soldier dressed in an Afghan army uniform opened fire with a machine gun. National security adviser Robert O’Brien told reporters traveling with Trump on Air Force One that the president wrapped up a reelection campaign rally in New Hampshire a bit early so he could visit with the families of the soldiers. He described such moments as “probably the toughest thing he does as president,” along with visiting wounded soldiers at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

Former Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said on Tuesday that former Vice President Joe Biden is the one Democrat capable of beating President Trump in the 2020 election, but he doesn't think Biden will win the nomination. Instead, he says it will likely go to one of the progressive candidates on the roster. "I'd say he's probably the most likely one to have a chance at beating Donald Trump, but I don't see Joe getting the nomination, I just don't see him getting there," Ryan told CNBC at the annual Milken Conference in Abu Dhabi.

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire -- For a brief moment, concerned looks crossed the faces of some Elizabeth Warren supporters gathered for her election-night event in a cavernous building near the Manchester airport. There were no TVs visible to most of the crowd -- a common feature for a struggling campaign that doesn't want the audience to see bad news. There was no warm-up speaker. At 8:20 p.m., facing a fourth-place finish in New Hampshire after a third-place showing a week ago in Iowa, Warren walked onstage without fanfare. She began by acknowledging that Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg "had strong nights."

Daniel Sprague was at The Stage bar on Broadway sporting a gift his wife gave him for his 50th birthday bash—a hat that says "Make 50 Great Again."

"People were just coming up to me and, you know, just loving the little word play on the hat and taking pictures and wishing me happy birthday," Sprague told News4. However, one woman at the bar was not as amused.

California Rep.

Prosecutors initially sought a sentence of up to nine years in prison, but the Justice Department stepped in and said it would pursue a lesser penalty for Stone."We’re not going to take our options off the table.

Maggie Gaines understands why her daughter’s teacher at Valley Forge Elementary School went to the principal after the 6-year-old pointed her finger at the teacher like a gun and said, “I shoot you.” What she doesn’t understand is why she and her husband had to end up on a conference call with the Tredyffrin Township police the next day, giving their names and ages to an officer. “‘You don’t understand, this is insane,’” Gaines recalls saying. Gaines was told that her daughter, Margot, who has Down syndrome, had triggered a threat assessment by the Tredyffrin/Easttown School District — and that, under district policy, school officials had to call police.
