Dem Civil War Continues as Yang Bashes Debate Moderators for Slighted Speaking Time

Even fellow dark horse candidate Tulsi Gabbard chimed in.

Published

The Democratic Party has been trudging uphill in the battle to repair their reputation after 2016, and it appears as though only some of the lessons of that fateful election are hitting home.

During 2016’s presidential primaries, an unbelievable storyline emerged thanks to the whistleblowing efforts of Julian Assange and his outfit Wikileaks.  Emails, gleaned from the campaign of Hillary Clinton, demonstrated a clear and unconscionable coordination between the former First Lady’s team and the Democratic National Committee to put the kibosh on the campaign of Bernie Sanders, Senator from Vermont, who had captured the imagination of the youthful, millennial wing of the party.

When the news broke, Clinton was unceremoniously spurned by the Democrats, undoubtedly contributing to her stunning electoral evisceration by Donald Trump in November 2016.

The Democrats have been struggling to right those wrongs ever since, and the 2020 campaign trail is no exception.

Trending: Adam Schiff Insinuates That Impeachment is Just 2020 Election Meddling for Dems

One candidates, wealthy businessman and Washington outsider Andrew Yang is now accusing the party of similarly skewing their attention, particularly on the debate stage.

Businessman Andrew Yang criticized MSNBC sharply for not giving him adequate speaking time during Wednesday night’s Democrat debate, co-hosted by the left-wing network and the Washington Post.

“What is up with that?” Yang asked Breitbart News. “You should ask MSNBC.”

ABC News computed that Yang only spoke for six minutes and fifty-nine seconds across the two hours of debate — barely 5% of the total time on a stage with 10 candidates.

The evidence tends to bend in Yang’s favor as well.

Even fellow dark horse candidate Tulsi Gabbard chimed in:

Gabbard, a House Rep. from Hawaii, has also felt the wrath of the Clinton curse on the Democratic Party after taking flak from the former Secretary of State herself, with Hillary claiming that Gabbard was being “groomed” by Russia to spoil the left’s chances in 2020.

‘Wall Street Pete’ Draws Criticism Over Big Money Donors in 2020 Race

Buttigieg’s signature snark was on full display during his weak defense.

Published

on

One of the most important pieces of the Democratic puzzle for 2020 is any given candidate’s ability to maintain that they are independent of the corporate electoral machine.

For years now, the liberal left has insisted that lobbyists, special interest groups, and massive international conglomerates were destroying the very sanctity of our governmental processes.  Our elected representatives in Congress were being bought and paid for, undeniably at times, and this was allowing our public servants plausible deniability to do what’s best for them and these lobbyists as opposed to what’s best for the nation as a whole.

So, for the 2020 election, Democratic candidates of all shapes and sizes decided that they would forego donations from corporate donors in an effort to distance themselves from potentially damaging accusations.  These presidential hopefuls then wore this small-donor pledge like a badge of honor throughout the beginnings of their campaigns, making the anti-corporate angle almost a prerequisite for consideration.

By that logic, Pete Buttigieg may be out of the running now.

Left-wing activists heckled Pete Buttigieg for accepting corporate donations during the Democratic presidential candidate’s five-day, high-dollar fundraising swing.

On Wednesday night, a group of about 10 protesters from New York Communities for Change, a grassroots organization, chanted “Wall Street Pete,” while banging pots and pans outside of a fundraiser Buttigieg was attending at the Upper West Side home of tech investor and entrepreneur Kevin Ryan. (The New York Daily News reported that there were about two dozen protesters).

Buttigieg attempted to snidely deflect the criticism.

Buttigieg mostly dismissed the picketers, joking about their presence, according to a pool report. “Wow, they’re excited,” he said. “One of the things you learn on a deployment is dealing with distracting noises.”

Buttigieg was on a fairly steady rise in the polls up until this point.  It has yet to be seen whether or not that will continue after this snafu.

Adam Schiff Insinuates That Impeachment is Just 2020 Election Meddling for Dems

So Ukraine can’t interfere in our election, but Adam Schiff can?

Published

on

The Democrats have one fear that tends to permeate the party above all others:  That Donald Trump will get reelected in 2020’s election.

They are wholly justified in this fear, as well.  Trump remains incredibly popular among Republicans, both those in Congress and those in the general constituency, and is even winning over a decent swath of independent voters on account of his intrepid mission to drain the swamp and battle the so-called “Deep State” on the behalf of Americans everywhere.  Witnessing the swamp itself rise up to “resist” him has only tempered the resolve of Trump’s supporters as well, as this carte-blanche opposition to the President’s agenda is simply further proof that not all is well in our nation’s capital or Capitol.

Now, with articles of impeachment introduced into the equation, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is admitting what Democrats are really up to here:  Damaging the President’s chances at reelection.

Schiff briefly addressed critics who say that Democrats should simply wait for the American people to judge the president in the 2020 election.

Democrats, Schiff suggested, cannot allow that, because it would essentially allow Trump to “cheat” in one more election. His remarks echo the Democrats’ longheld belief that the Trump campaign “colluded” with Russia in 2016, despite the fact that the Mueller report debunked the narrative, finding no evidence of collusion or conspiracy between the two.

“The argument, ‘why don’t you just wait?’ comes down to this: Why don’t you just let him cheat in just one more election?” Schiff stated. “Why not let him have foreign help one more time?”…

Of course, impeachment itself has already been determined likely to fail during the Senate trial, making this entire process all for naught in the long run.  The Democrats are simply using this extra TV time to lambast the Commander in Chief before the nation heads to the polls next November.

And isn’t that just election meddling by another name?

POLL: Trump Beats Democrats in Battleground States, Mich., Penn., Wis.

A new poll finds that despite the left media’s daily impeachment drumbeat, President Donald Trump is beating all Democrat challengers.

Published

A new poll finds that despite the left media’s daily impeachment drumbeat, President Donald Trump is beating all Democrat challengers.

The Firehouse/Optimus poll shows that Trump is ahead of the Democrats — even former Vice President Joe Biden.

Biden sits five points below Trump in both Michigan and Pennsylvania, and an even worse nine points below in Wisconsin.

These three states are being called the “battleground” states for 2020 because they gave trump the edge in 2016 but by only slim margins.

Prior Firehouse/Optimus polls showed Biden even with Trump in these important states, but as America gets a closer look at Biden, his luster continues to dim.

For instance, in Wisconsin, Biden went form a 12-point lead over Trump in March, to nine points below the president in this December poll.

Trump found even stronger leads against Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, and Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

The survey also threw former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg in the mix since his announcement this month, and Trump slaughters the former mayor.

Finally, the poll found that voters in these battleground states are not at all impressed with the Democrat’s and the media’s case for impeachment.

The poll found that 51 percent of voters in Michigan, 52.2 percent in Pennsylvania, and 57.9 percent in Wisconsin oppose impeaching Trump.

The poll was conducted December 3-5 of 12/3 of 1,759 likely 2020 general election voters in Wisconsin (N = 610), Michigan (N = 551), and Pennsylvania (N = 598) with about a four percent margin of error.

Biden Apologizes for Fat-Shaming Constituent at Town Hall Gone Wrong

Biden simply snapped, and he’s now acknowledging his hurtful words.

Published

on

Americans knew that former Vice President Joe Biden was going to be a handful out on the campaign trail, but perhaps no one imagined that the events of the last 48 hours were even possible.

Biden, who maintains a somewhat tenuous lead over the rest of the 2020 Democratic field, in known for his gaffes, mistruths, and outdated anecdotes.  He’s also one of the most easily frustrated Democrats on the trail, a fact evidenced by an incident earlier in the week.

As the former Vice President was conversing with undecided voters in Iowa, one such constituent had a query for Biden regarding his son’s business in Ukraine.  “Sleepy” Joe snapped, called the man a “damn liar”, and proceeded to berate him while approaching him in a menacing manner.

“You’re a damn liar, man, that’s not true,” Biden boomed as the man continued to argue that “you don’t have a backbone… any more than Trump.” When the man finally told Biden he wouldn’t vote for him, Biden replied, “I knew you weren’t voting for me.”

When the healthy-looking voter separately stated his concern over Biden’s advanced age, the former Vice President challenged him to a pushup contest.  That confrontation was seen by some as a form of fat-shaming.

Biden acknowledged this a day later.

“I probably shouldn’t have challenged him to pushups,” Biden told reporters ahead of a campaign event with former Secretary of State John Kerry, conceding that difficult questions are par for the court for presidential candidates.

In an attempt to quell the blowback from the former vice president fat-shaming the voter, a senior Biden campaign said that the candidate used the word “facts” instead of “fat” before launching into a tirade against the man.

The combative exchange occurred on the same day that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi berated a reporter on Capitol Hill for asking a question regarding Georgia Rep. Doug Collins during her weekly press conference.

Bloomberg Insults Entire 2020 Field with One Sentence Praising Donald Trump’s Tenacity

Bloomberg is in desperate need of a bump in the polls, but this isn’t likely the way to accomplish it.

Published

on

Michael Bloomberg needs a miracle, that’s for sure.

The billionaire former NYC Mayor entered the 2020 presidential race extremely late, well after a number of other candidates had come and gone.  He arrived to a contest whose frontrunners were already galvanizing their supporters and beginning to lob their attacks toward the White House instead of one another.

And, to top it all off, he’s only managed to garner a meager following at best, consistently polling at under 5%.

Now, in what appears to be an effort to reinvigorate himself, Bloomberg is taking a swipe at every other Democrat in the race, while also sending a backhanded compliment President Trump’s way.

Mike Bloomberg says he’s not just another billionaire running for president. In an exclusive interview with “CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King, Bloomberg spoke about President Trump, the other Democratic candidates including former Vice President Joe Biden, his own complicated history on the issue of race and policing, and why he chose to enter the campaign so late.

From that interview:

KING: What happened between September and now?

BLOOMBERG: I looked at our national government getting worse, the way we’re behaving overseas and domestically, led by our president. I said back in 2016, “He is the wrong person for the job. He doesn’t have the temperament or the ethics or the intellect to do the job.” And I said, “We just can’t have another four years of this.” And then I watched all the candidates. And I just thought to myself, “Donald Trump would eat ’em up.”

Bloomberg’s concern over Trump’s ability to “eat up” the other candidates isn’t unique among the Democrats in 2019, with the electability of the eventual nominee consistently being touted as perhaps the most important feature for voters.

That’s because, quite simply, the Democratic Party isn’t interested in running the country efficiently – they are only hoping to defeat Donald Trump.

With the End of Kamala Harris, the ‘Inclusive’ Dem. Party Set For All-White Debate

Now that Kamla Harris has quit her losing quest for president, the next Democrat presidential debate is set to be an all-white affair.

Published

on

Now that Kamla Harris has quit her losing quest for president, the next Democrat presidential debate is set to be an all-white affair as so far only the white candidates have been approved for inclusion.

Harris had qualified for the upcoming Democrat debate, but on Tuesday the California Senator announced the end of her campaign for the 2020 Democrat nomination for president.

Harris, who was never able to get more than a few percent support in the Democrat polls, said that she can’t see a “path forward” to the nomination. “So, to you my supporters, it is with deep regret — but also with deep gratitude — that I am suspending my campaign today,” she said.

But with Harris exiting the stage, that leaves only the white candidates approved for the “inclusive” party’s debates.

So far, only six Democrat candidates have been officially invited to the debate: former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, and billionaire Democratic donor and climate change nutcase Tom Steyer.

So, the “diverse” party has thus far excluded Sen. Cory Booker, businessman Andrew Yang, Rep. Julian Castro, Rep. Tulsi Gabard, and former gov. Deval Patrick.

According to the Democrat National Committee, Booker, Yang, and Gabbard have met some of the requirements for inclusion, but still have not hit the needed polling numbers to be included.

Naturally, many liberals are crying that the fact that no minorities will be on stage despite that there are plenty of them in the hunt for the nomination is proof of racism.

Lefties took to Twitter to leave their primal screams:

In fact, the situation sponsored the Twitter hashtag “#PrimariesSoWhite,” that briefly hit the “trending” list on Tuesday.

Sayonara Kamala! 2020 Long Shot Makes Long Overdue Announcement

We’ve seen this coming since February, if we’re honest.

Published

on

For well over nine months now, the writing has been on the wall for Senator Kamala Harris’ bid for the Democratic primary in 2020.

It was back in February that Harris foolishly attempted to defend her record as a hard-nosed prosecutor by joking about “smoking marijuana” and “listening to Tupac” when grilled in an interview about her tough treatment of non-violent drug offenders.  Worse still, the story was a lie – a fact that only took several minutes for the internet to discover.  Then, to top it all off, Kamala made the ill-advised attempt at humor during Black History Month.

Yikes.

This incident sent Harris’ polling numbers crashing down into the low single digits, where they have remained since.

Now, someone in her camp has finally pulled the plug on the long-doomed campaign.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) ended her bid for the White House on Tuesday amid dropping poll numbers and reports of turmoil in her campaign.

“I’ve taken stock and looked at this from every angle, and over the last few days have come to one of the hardest decisions of my life. My campaign for president simply doesn’t have the financial resources we need to continue,” Harris said in a statement. “I’m not a billionaire. I can’t fund my own campaign. And as the campaign has gone on, it’s become harder and harder to raise the money we need to compete.”

“In good faith, I can’t tell you, my supporters and volunteers, that I have a path forward if I don’t believe I do,” the California Democrat concluded.

The development comes after Harris canceled a Tuesday fundraiser at the Paul Weiss law firm in New York City over what her campaign described as a “personal matter,” reports CNBC. The event, which was expected to draw Wall Street investors Marc Lasry and Blair Effron, had not been rescheduled by the campaign.

The Democratic Senator’s exit from the race should act as a catalyst for others to abandon their ill-fated bids as well, allowing the Democratic Party to finally get down to business of trying to push Joe Biden over the top despite his constant, creepy gaffes.
