In a bipartisan vote on Thursday, the U.S. Senate voted 55-45 to limit the ability of President Donald Trump to go to war against Iran. The vote came several weeks after Trump’s bold strike, killing an Iranian general. While it is not surprising that Democrats voted to limit Trump — some Democrats would vote against Trump any chance they had — it was noteworthy that eight Republicans joined in supporting the resolution authored by Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia.
The U.S. Senate is preparing to vote on two pro-life bills focused on banning late-term abortions and protecting babies born alive following failed abortions, both of which are more common than the Left claims. Though the votes are expected to fail, they will force the Democrats to go on record as the party of infanticide and late-term abortions.
The new Hulu docuseries about Hillary Clinton and the 2016 presidential campaign — entitled Hillary — premiered on Saturday at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Unsurprisingly, the four-part series, which is set to be released to the public on March 6, is said to be a non-critical look at Clinton and the events surrounding the 2016 presidential election.
In this episode of Behind the Deep State, host Alex Newman digs into the "Deep State" operating within the federal bureaucracy. These operatives, especially in the Senior Executive Service, are working to undermine the U.S. Constitution, persecute enemies, wage war on Trump, and continue America's decline into statism and globalism. They love Hillary Clinton and total federal power. And they have powerful tools at their disposal to destroy those who stand in their way.
Barack Obama certainly isn’t feeling the Bern, unless it’s indigestion. Concerned that presidential candidate Bernie Sanders — perhaps the new Democrat front-runner — won’t be able to trump Trump, the ex-president is considering a public rebuke of the Vermont senator designed to kill his momentum. Obama isn’t alone in experiencing the Bernie blues. The Democrat establishment clearly doesn’t want Sanders, who’s not even a Democrat but an independent (and avowed socialist), as its party’s nominee; this was evidenced in the recent failed effort to tar Sanders as “sexist.”
An already-fractured Democrat Party is dealing with more splinters as its former standard bearer, Hillary Clinton, tore into one of the party’s frontrunners for this year’s presidential nomination, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Clinton made the remarks in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter in advance of the new Hulu mini-series Hillary, which will premier at the Sundance Film Festival.
Some Democrats are angry about their presidential candidates; others are just embarrassed by them. But disturbing these liberals are not their contenders’ radical views — it’s their whiteness. And responding to the matter of race in the race, Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez has said, essentially: Don’t look at me. It’s the voters.
There hasn’t been one in almost 70 years. But there’s a distinct possibility that 2020 will see a brokered (or “contested”) Democrat convention, a situation in which no candidate wins enough delegates to capture the nomination on the first vote, allowing the delegates to then vote for whomever they please. This could mean choosing an identity-politics candidate, the establishment’s Joe Biden, or someone who hasn’t even run in the primaries — such as Michelle Obama or Hillary Clinton.
Ruling-class Democrats might whisper to each other and even tell the media that Joe Biden can’t defeat President Trump, but it appears that rank-and-file voters don’t agree. Biden’s latest numbers in the Real Clear Politics average of voter polls put him 5.4 points ahead of Elizabeth Warren, a shade less than last week’s six-point lead, but still close to what he polled then.
For a week now, the leftist media and hate-Trump Democrats have been pushing the fake news narrative that President Trump solicited “foreign interference” in the 2020 election during a phone call with Ukraine President Vlodymyr Zelensky. As John Solomon of The Hill reported in March and May, the Obama White House and Democratic National Committee ran a two-pronged operation to help Hillary Clinton and sink Trump.
