LOS ANGELES — On the day before in-person early voting was to begin across California’s most populous county, there was no sign of life at Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s campaign office in East Los Angeles last Friday. A metal gate out front was padlocked shut, with a missed-delivery notice from the Postal Service wedged into it. In a strip mall a mile away, a campaign office for Senator Bernie Sanders was humming with activity. Field organizers were busy calling supporters, and every so often the ding of a bell signaled that another volunteer was on board. Mr. Biden is counting on a win in the South Carolina primary

Joe's goal is a third place trophy. He can carry it around at the nursing home, which he'll be entering shortly after the convention.

He has always been nothing other mediocre. He has zero leadership abilities. He is the image in the dictionary for "falling up".

A Bernie Sanders nomination
is Nancy Pelosi's nightmare

Posted by MissMolly 2/28/2020 4:54:33 AM Post Reply
As the race for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination intensifies, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying to keep the peace. Bernie Sanders’s recent gains have left establishment Democrats, Pelosi included, nervous. But when asked if she’d be comfortable with Sanders leading the Democratic ticket, Pelosi gave a one-word answer: “Yes.” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has offered a similar response, arguing that any one of the Democratic candidates would help the party achieve its primary goal of beating President Trump. But the Democratic Party is not as happy a family right now as such talk might suggest.
Bloomberg takes credit for leading NYC

Presidential hopeful Mike Bloomberg takes credit for leading New York “through” the 9/11 attacks in a campaign ad. But there’s one problem: He didn’t become mayor until four months later. Touting his leadership chops, the billionaire released a 30-second video including the claim. “I led a complex, diverse city through 9/11 and I have common-sense plans to move America away from the chaos to progress,” Bloomberg, 78, is seen saying at a campaign rally. But Rudy Giuliani was mayor during the attacks, and he didn’t hand Bloomberg the keys to Gracie Mansion until Jan. 1, 2002. The businessman has so far poured $500 million of his $62 billion personal fortune into his campaign,

Have you ever seen anyone so enthralled with the idea that Stephen King’s The Stand might play out in real life as today’s Democrat Party and its allies in the mainstream media? This week has been a nonstop orgy of doomsaying and freakouts in the mainstream media about the coronavirus disease 2019, or COVID-19 for short, which really ought to be known by its more descriptive name, the Kung Flu. It’s a deadly disease, to be sure, but not so much more so that it has the potential to wipe out civilization than the ordinary flu, which people catch all the time and every so often die from.

Bernie Sanders on Monday night released a plan for “how we pay for every program that we have developed.” No one’s surprised that the numbers don’t remotely add up — or even pass the laugh test. The list only covers 10-year costs for seven of his headline items: $16 trillion for the Green New Deal; $4 trillion for free college, pre-K and day care; $2.5 trillion for affordable housing and so on. Independent estimates from progressive outfits like the Urban Institute put the price for Medicare for All at well over $30 trillion. Sanders insists it will cost half that because he’ll magically cut costs. It adds up to easily doubling
Swiss town may have to evacuate

World War II weapons cache

Residents of a Swiss town may have to abandon their homes for more than a decade while authorities clear out a massive World War II underground weapons cache nearby, officials say. Around 3,500 tons of ammunition remain inside a former armory in Mitholz. Some of the material already exploded in 1947, killing nine people and damaging properties. But most of what’s left of the arsenal is now reportedly covered by fallen rocks. "Depending on how the work develops, residents should expect the evacuation to last up to more than 10 years," the Agence France-Presse quoted Switzerland’s defense ministry as saying.
Buttigieg wins Iowa after caucus
recount, state Dem party says

The results of the Iowa caucus remain unchanged even after a recount by the Iowa Democratic Party (IDP), which was requested by the two Democratic front-runners, former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. “The recount process resulted in no change to National Delegate allocation,” the IDP said in a statement Thursday. Buttigieg remained the winner in the state, with a marginally higher delegate count than Sanders: Buttigieg had 562.954 and Sanders had 562.021. The caucus debacle that ensued on Feb. 3 -- caused in part by technical glitches with an app introduced with the intention of simplifying voter tabulations -- prompted backlash from across the country

A seven-month deployment in Afghanistan shrouded in secrecy is a key piece of Pete Buttigieg’s pitch to voters in the 2020 presidential race, with the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor arguing that his status as a veteran and his time in a war zone give him foreign policy gravitas and first-hand military experience none of his Democratic primary rivals can claim. That supposed strength, however, ultimately could become a weakness in a potential general election match-up with President Trump and a Republican Party that is already eyeing ways to turn Mr. Buttigieg’s time as a Naval intelligence officer into a liability.

Harvey Weinstein is “in disbelief,” but “not delusional,” about his conviction, as he remains under care at Bellevue Hospital before being transferred to Rikers Island, where he’ll be put behind bars. “He’s still in disbelief of the charges he was convicted of. He’s very consistent about his innocence,” one of Weinstein’s attorneys, Arthur Aidala, told Variety over the phone late Wednesday night. Weinstein was convicted Monday on two felony charges: criminal sex act in the first-degree for assaulting Miriam Haley by forcible oral sex in 2006, and rape in the third-degree for raping Jessica Mann in a New York City hotel room in 2013.

ALEXANDRIA, Virginia By the time President Trump speaks Saturday afternoon at the Gaylord Hotel National Harbor, the thousands of activists at the 48th annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) will have heard from dozens of Republican politicians, authors, strategists, and media personalities. As important as any of the other speakers might be, none will pack the Potomac Ballroom the way Trump will. It’s an election year, and Trump’s speech at CPAC can be considered the official launch of his 2020 campaign for reelection. With socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont currently leading the field of Democratic presidential contenders to face Trump in November, the contrast could scarcely be clearer.

The next Democratic debate isn’t in Paterson, New Jersey, but it should be: that unlikely city is blazing new trails in multiculturalism and diversity. On Wednesday, the City Council voted unanimously (with two members not voting) to grant preliminary approval to the Islamic call to prayer being broadcast over loudspeakers in the city. This followed the swearing-in earlier this month, on the Qur’an, of course, of Paterson’s new police chief, Ibrahim “Mike” Baycora, the first Muslim police chief in an American city. Celebrate diversity, right? Sure. The problem is that it is by no means certain that this diversity will celebrate us.

In his autobiography, Bloomberg on Bloomberg, he writes that he couldn’t understand why some of his colleagues insisted upon telling their spouses about the deal immediately. “Strict instructions to the contrary notwithstanding, some partners did telephone their wives that Friday night. I thought it was nonsensical to make your spouse a possible leak suspect. What difference would it make if she didn’t know for an extra day?” 2. In the same book, Bloomberg describes

Should white people sing black spirituals? Western Michigan University is grappling with that question after a black student was triggered and suffered a social media meltdown when a predominantly white choir sang “Wade in the Water.” “So apparently Western Michigan University thinks it’s ok for WHITE peoples to sing negro spirituals while the instructor talking bout ‘these songs don’t belong to one race.’ They sure as hell DO,” WMU music major Shaylee Faught wrote on a social media now seen by more than 1 million people. Faught got triggered after the choir’s black conductor reportedly told the audience that the selections were “American songs” performed “for everyone” and “have no ethnicity.”

A number of pundits have recently argued that younger voters, especially those under 30, are less inclined to be bothered when they hear the word “socialism,” since they have no firsthand memory of the Cold War. To some extent, this must be true. Those who weren’t alive during socialism’s cruelest catastrophes — or even its many banal failures — will be less put off by the idea. Then again, if a presidential candidate were praising the excellent public transportation system of the Third Reich or going on about the some alleged benefit to American slavery, they would rightly be chased from the public square forever

A little more than a year ago, the New Jersey Legislature passed, and Gov. Phil Murphy signed, a law mandating the teaching of LGBT subject matter in public school curriculum, beginning in 2020-21.In response to the law, the activist group Garden State Equality has prepared a curriculum, currently piloted in 12 New Jersey schools and planned to be employed statewide in the fall. This is consistent with Murphy’s vision. At Garden State Equality’s 2019 Ball, he said, “I applaud Garden State Equality for not only leading this effort, but for your continued work in helping to craft this curriculum.”

Rep. John Garamendi, D-Calif., appeared to threaten Donald Trump Jr., the president's son, on Friday, warning that they better not be in close quarters or they could have a "serious altercation." He made those comments on MSNBC while discussing the coronavirus. MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson had asked the congressman about Trump Jr.'s argument that Democrats were hoping for deaths from the coronavirus so it could end his father's winning streak. "He should not be near me when he says that," Garamendi responded. "There would be a serious altercation. That is just totally outrageous. That is totally outrageous."

The U.S. military is about to experience another first: Barring injury in the next few weeks, an enlisted soldier is about to become the first female Green Beret in Army history. That comes seven years after the Pentagon lifted its longtime ban on women serving in combat roles. As with all special operators, the military does not release names or identification. But the woman is expected to graduate soon from the rugged, roughly year-long qualification course and become a Special Forces engineer sergeant. Another woman is also making her way through the demanding yearlong course. The length of the course depends on the operator’s specialty

Chicago Public Schools will no longer observe Columbus Day. The Board of Education voted to change the name to Indigenous Peoples’ Day as other cities and school districts have done. The board’s vote on the issue was 5-2. The school holiday will be on Oct. 12 this year. CPS is working to develop new curriculum to more accurately tell the history of Native American cultures. The holiday has been controversial because the day has been used to commemorate Italian explorer Christopher Columbus who claimed to have discovered America in 1492. The area was already populated by indigenous people and some have argued that Columbus’ actions led to their genocide.

Representative Ilhan Omar now obviously enjoys trolling Republicans, perhaps lulled into complacency by the MSM’s general leftism and Minnesota media’s complicity in suppressing news of her apparent immigration fraud by marrying her brother (Scott Johnson of Powerline deserves a Pulitzer Prize for his role in exposing this major scandal, but won’t get one because the Pulitzer committee reflects the leftist bias of the mainstream journalism community).

David Goldfein, is designed to make the service friendlier to women, The Gazette reports. “Our song must reflect our history, the inspiring service and accomplishments of all who’ve served, and the rich diversity that makes today’s Air Force indisputably the strongest and most capable in the world,” Goldfein wrote in a message to airmen, cadets and academy alumni. The change originated when female Air Force Academy cadets asked Goldfein why
