Original Article

Senator Amy Klobuchar is suspending her presidential campaign and flying to Dallas to endorse former Vice President Joe Biden, a campaign spokesman said Monday. The Minnesota Democrat will appear with Biden at a rally Monday night, just hours before voters in 14 states go to the polls on Super Tuesday. The move comes one day after Pete Buttigieg exited the race following Biden's convincing victory in South Carolina.

Why today and not on Wednesday after Super Tuesday? Amy's name is going to still be on all the ballots tomorrow. She's ceding Minnesota to Bernie despite her Biden endorsement.

The Dem Anti-Bern Project is on the move. First Buttigieg, now Klobuchar. Next Warren (if they have to drag her out kicking and screaming)… CTH has predicted this for some time… Necessary to clear the deck for Biden.

Both she and Mayor Pete have been promised something - cabinet positions, the VP slot, an ambassadorship (to a European capital). Both dropping out before Super Tuesday is something of an empty gesture. With early voting, a good percentage of the votes have already been cast. Zephyrman and I sent ours in weeks ago.

Re #13, hit Submit by accident: From CTH’s prediction: The move to drop out makes sense within the most likely Club pattern to support Joe Biden. Buttigieg drops out now ahead of Super-Tuesday allowing less fragmentation of the vote. It will be interesting to see if he follows a Club plan to endorse Joe Biden because Buttigieg previously wrote high praise for Bernie Sanders. Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar will stay-in to block Bernie’s delegate count in Massachusetts and Minnesota respectively (both states vote on Super Tuesday). Klobuchar will likely drop-out after Tuesday. Warren might follow. https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/03/01/buttigieg-drops-out/ Klobuchar flying to Dallas to rally with Biden.

SAN FRANCISCO — Silicon Valley venture capitalist Keith Rabois, onstage in January at a tech conference, said his first choice for president was a Democrat, Pete Buttigieg. And, sure, it would be a close call for Joe Biden over President Donald Trump. But Bernie Sanders? At that, Rabois, who has been a top executive at or invested in LinkedIn, Square, Yelp and PayPal, balked. Speaking to the crowd, he drew the line at democratic socialism. (Buttigieg ended his campaign Sunday night.) “I would certainly vote for Trump over Sanders,” Rabois declared. When it comes to the 2020 Democratic primaries, with

Former Vice President Joe Biden has picked up some big endorsements in the last week or so, including a couple in Virginia after he won South Carolina's Democratic presidential primary Saturday. But in case you're wondering if former President Barack Obama will get behind his old right-hand man before Super Tuesday, Biden suggests not holding your breath. During an appearance on ABC's This Week on Sunday, host George Stephanopoulos asked Biden, who is back in the thick of the race but is still likely chasing national frontrunner Sen.

TUCSON, Ariz. — The owners of a Mexican restaurant in the Tucson area are fending off social media attacks after appearing in the VIP area at President Donald Trump's Phoenix campaign rally last week. The Arizona Daily Star reports that a Facebook group posted a screenshot image from the Feb. 19 rally that showed Sammy's Mexican Grill co-owner Betty Rivas standing behind Trump, donning a red cowboy hat emblazoned with "Latinos Love Trump."

KASTANIES, Greece - Greek police fired teargas to push back hundreds of stone-throwing migrants trying to cross the border from Turkey on Saturday, as a crisis over Syria shifted onto the European Union's doorstep. Greece, which has tense relations with Turkey, accused Ankara of sending the migrants to the border post in an organized "onslaught" and said it would keep them out. Turkey said on Thursday it would stop keeping hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers in its territory after an air strike on Idlib in neighboring Syria killed 33 Turkish soldiers.

"I don't trust him," said Mayo, an archivist at the College of Charleston, who has narrowed her choices in Saturday's Democratic primary to Tom Steyer and Elizabeth Warren.

Myrtle Beach (United States) - For centuries, South Carolina's Charleston was the largest port of entry for the transatlantic slave trade. Now, a billionaire activist named Tom Steyer is shaking up the state's Democratic primary by advocating slavery reparations for African Americans. A California financier turned philanthropist and environmental campaigner, Steyer has poured tens of millions of dollars into the state ahead of Saturday's vote -- with a single-minded focus on the black voters who make up 60 percent of its Democratic electorate. How South Carolina's African Americans vote in the White House primaries is traditionally a key indicator of which contender

Fearing the selection of Bernie Sanders as the Democrats’ 2020 presidential nominee, a growing number of establishment party officials are reportedly considering Sherrod Brown as a late entry “white knight” with Michelle Obama as a running mate. Other potential candidates floated by the party include Kamala Harris, who dropped out of the race in December, as well as house speaker Nancy Pelosi, according to the New York Times’ interview with 93 party officials, all of whom are super-delegates who could determine the party’s nominee should a candidate emerge without a clear majority of delegate votes.

A ban on flavored e-cigarettes and tobacco products passed the House on Friday but divided Democrats, with some saying it unfairly targets African Americans. (Snip) It would also ban menthol cigarettes, which are disproportionately used by African Americans after years of targeted marketing by tobacco companies. While most Democrats supported the measure, some members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) voted against the bill, worrying it could give police a way to target African Americans. “This legislation has dire, unintended consequences for African Americans,” said Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.), a member of the CBC. “Law enforcement would have an additional

Former Bill Clinton strategist Paul Begala thinks President Trump is going to swap running mates in 2020. The CNN political analyst made the prediction during a Monday panel event at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual conference. Begala, who was a chief strategist during Clinton’s 1992 campaign, said he thinks Pence will be replaced as vice president on Trump's ticket with Nikki Haley, his former U.N. ambassador. “This is not a prediction. It’s a certainty,” Begala said. “On Thursday, July 16 — that’s the date the Democrat gives her or his acceptance address — on that day, to interrupt that narrative, Donald Trump will call a press conference at Mar-a-Lago."

A federal judge has ordered former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to submit to a deposition by lawyers for the conservative group Judicial Watch over her fateful decision to use of a private email server. Judge Royce Lamberth issued the order in response to litigation by the group that has dragged on for more than five years and seeks the public release of information from Clinton's tenure at the State Department. 'Any further discovery should focus on whether she used a private server to evade FOIA and, as a corollary to that, what she understood about State's records management obligations,' the judge wrote about the federal open records law.
