because voters saw through her

Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s presidential candidacy ultimately failed because voters saw right through her. Warren’s career, as I have detailed, has been built on a series of cons dating back to her time as an academic peddling dubious medical bankruptcy research. In the run-up to her 2020 campaign, she attempted to lean into her false claim of Native American heritage. On the campaign trail, she told whoppers about having been pushed out of a teaching job for being visibly pregnant and told charter school advocates her kids went to public school (while hiding that she sent one of her children to private school). She was an unconvincing panderer, actually generating phrases

she was a product of the media's 'favorite candidate of the month.' Who else earned that label? Robert O'Rourke, because he skateboarded into campaign events. lumpjaw Amy, the Minnesota t. rex., because she was mean to someone. Castro, because, I guess, he was mexican american or something. Kamala Sutra because she was nasty to Old Jo Biden. Kirsten Gillibrand, for unknown reasons. Corey Booker, the NJ black with a 'boo' as a beard. His beard admitted this past week that she is a lesbian. tom Steyer, the nitwit billionaire, because he tried to be cool. old Jo Biden, because he didn't unzip and pee in a potted plant. Crazy Bernie, because he had that loud, communist voice. Yang, but I don't know why. Tulsi Gabbard, everyone's prom date. And Marianne the mystic moonbeam from california.

I fail to see any difference in the wad of Democratic candidates going after the worlds greatest leadership job. Every, race, creed, color or ethnic group screaming it’s their time to be president of the United States. The founding father’s wisely did not make this a requirement for the office but did make age a factor. This makes the positioned earned and not appointed. The “electroral college is the best filter we have until a better system is found. A start would be to have elections use Zulu time, a 24 hour period where we all start and stop at the same. All counting and reporting within 24 hours after polls are closed. The people elect and not an appointed federal judge.

When all you offer is harsh lecturing, and pessimism to the voters, that is what they/we do not like. It wasn't just her policies we didn't like, it was the resemblance to every loathed ex family member that millions of us have. It was like watching Bernie in Drag too. They both tried to outdo each other with all the bogus promises they would have no way of keeping. Now contrast the democrat platform of anti God, anti Christian, anti everything that is productive in this country to the hope, great economy and America First policies of Trump and there is no contest. People are going to go for success and money in their pockets over the cod liver oil equivalent of the democrats. Being pro death and destruction is not working out for them this year.

When she was still claiming to be a cherokee maiden she was telling the tall tale about how her parents were discriminated in Oklahoma for being a mixed-race couple and had to secretly elope because of the disapproval of family and neighbors. Turned out that her Mother and Father were both caucasion, and her entire fake story was a slander against the people of Oklahoma.

"still came up $14 trillion short " Multiply the cost of her program by 5 because dems ALWAYS vastly underestimate costs and the costs are now $170 trillion. Drop the $20 trillion she says she can raise, which is probably wildly optimistic, and the shortfall is $150 trillion. Plus you can almost guarantee the benefits will fall far short of promises (Keep your existing health plan? Premium saving of $2500 a family?). Warren's claim to fame is turning babble into a "plan" that sounds well thought out but collapses into absurdities when examined. Her plans are "unrealistic and dishonest". Bernie at least admits he will take all your money to dribble out government gruel. One thing that we should be asking all these Socialists, even if we believed their plans, WHY do we need to do this? They are skipping quickly past the justification just condemning Capitalism in broad terms but shy away from specific issues to be addressed. For example, most people QUALIFIED to go to college can find a way to pay for it. Their terrible choices to go to premium schools and rack up horrendous debt for a degree in butterfly studies makes you question their fitness for higher education. The government encouraging such spendthrifts is insanity. That is what government has been doing, CREATING the problem, and now they want to confiscate your money to "fix" the problem they created. This is a common vicious circle with dems, always leading to more control for them and loss of more of your money. There is NO justification for such programs as the Socialists propose. On top of that, Warren is just obnoxious.

Joe Biden’s status as the frontrunner in the Democratic presidential race highlights the party’s hypocrisy when it comes to striking down Donald Trump, SKY News Australia "Outsiders" host Rita Panahi says. Ms Panahi said it’s surprising the candidate, who is “so confused that he has trouble remembering where he is and why he’s there,” has not been discounted. “Biden's cognitive issues have been evident for some time but just watch the same media who for four years have been declaring Donald Trump mentally and physically unfit for office have a collective meltdown when Biden's mental faculties are questioned,” she said.

Joe Biden had a little outburst today, after a construction worker asked him about the Second Amendment: “You are actively trying to end our Second Amendment right and take away our guns,” the man told Biden as the candidate greeted workers building a Fiat-Chrysler assembly plant. “You’re full of sh**,” Biden responded. A Biden aide tried to end the discussion, but the candidate silenced her in order to continue speaking with the worker. “I support the Second Amendment … from the very beginning. I have a shotgun.

There are few ironclad rules in American politics. But here is one: if you are a Republican, no tactic is too disreputable to be deployed against you. I think for example, of the disgusting campaign waged to keep Judge Robert Bork from the Supreme Court in the 1980s. ‘Lion of the Senate’ Ted Kennedy led that charge (‘in Robert Bork’s America…’), though he was aided by a young senator named Joe Biden. Journalists went through Bork’s trash and reviewed the movies he rented for incriminating evidence. Other campaigns of vilification against Republican Supreme Court nominees include the one conducted against Clarence Thomas

The sudden rise of Joe Biden to the top of the former heap of Democratic presidential candidates coincides with a retooled approach to his campaign. Appearing at campaign rallies before friendly crowds in St. Louis and Kansas City over the weekend — see “Biden on the trail” for links to the videos — Biden’s handlers limited his exposure to speaking for a few minutes at each event. Even so, Biden struggled in the style to which we have become accustomed. The style to which we have become accustomed reveals his obvious mental decline.

In 2017, as President Trump took office, anti-Trump activists vented rage with pussy hats and other leftist agitprop. But the real work of the #Resistance has been carried out by holdover bureaucrats in the executive branch — and activist judges roaming far beyond their constitutional remit. Witness a senior federal district-court judge’s unhinged, disingenuous broadside last week against Attorney General William Barr. Judge Reggie Walton was confronted with a straightforward Freedom of Information Act complaint, a relatively common type of litigation. In this case, the plaintiffs sought an unredacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian “collusion” released last spring.

The NY Times published a news story today which finally says what many observers have noted for months. There is almost zero chance Medicare for All will become law even if Bernie Sanders wins the White House. In fact, even if Democrats win the Senate and change the filibuster rules, that probably wouldn’t matter either. Just 14 members of the Senate have signed on to his Medicare for All Act, which would require a huge expansion of federal spending, and Democrats would need to pick up four seats in November to gain majority control of the chamber.

The Super Tuesday results reveal a serious flaw in Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ campaign: his lack of support among African Americans, whose votes are critical not only for winning the Democratic primary, but for defeating President Donald Trump in the fall. Democrats who wish to beat Trump but prefer Sanders to former Vice President Joe Biden, must ask themselves the following question: Can a campaign that rests primarily on class warfare and economic justice, one that largely relegates race to a concern simply encompassed by economic reform, attract enough black voters to prevail? Recently, we conducted a national survey of the black community to answer this question.

Nearly a half-century apart, two presidential candidates promised the end to wars that had gone on too long. In 1968, Richard Nixon promised “peace with honor” in Vietnam. In 2016, Donald Trump promised an end to our “endless wars” in the Middle East and Southwest Asia. In 1968, the nation was politically torn apart over the Vietnam War. Among thousands of sometimes-violent protests against the war, some chanted that Ho Chi Minh, the communist dictator of North Vietnam, would win. Young men burned their draft cards and some fled to Canada to avoid the draft. Roll calls of soldiers killed in action were read over the nightly news.

When California Senator Kamala Harris dropped out of the primary race, I’ll confess that I was a bit surprised. She’d run a terrible campaign and probably had little hope of winning the nomination because she flip-flopped on so many of her positions, but she’d still gained at least some momentum and was briefly in contention. It just seemed a bit premature for her to leave the race when and how she did. What she didn’t do at that time was endorse any of her rivals for the nomination. And as the weeks dragged on, she remained mum on the topic.
