The end is near: Kamala abandons New Hampshire...

(Nasty woman set to go... good riddance! Go Walk in the woods, with the witch?)

The only thing that could make the schadenfreude here sweeter would be if Tulsi Gabbard suddenly announced that she’s opening offices in New Hampshire.

Preferably in the same buildings that Harris’s campaign is vacating, adds a Twitter pal.

MAG: How Mayor Pete Becomes President Pete...

Hillary laughs when asked how she killed Epstein...

Trevor Noah, the host of the Daily Show, asked Hillary Clinton in an interview about conspiracies that suggest the Clintons have murdered people.

"I have to ask you a question that has been plaguing me for a while, how did you kill Jeffrey Epstein?" Noah asked Thursday night, which prompted laughter from Clinton. "Because you're not in power, but you have all the power. I really need to understand how you do what you do, because you seem to be behind everything nefarious, and yet you do not use it to become president."

Noah, 35, did not give the former secretary of state a chance to answer and instead asked how Clinton felt being the "boogeyman of the Right."

"Well, it’s a constant surprise to me," the 2016 Democratic presidential said. "Because the things they say, and now, of course, it’s on steroids with being online, are so ridiculous, beyond any imagination that I could have. And yet they are so persistent in putting forth these crazy ideas and theories. Honestly, I don’t know what I ever did to get them so upset."

Conspiracy theories and jokes about the Clintons have become popular on the internet as the former president, Bill Clinton, was a friend of Epstein and flew around the world on his private jet.

The billionaire and sex trafficker was found dead three months ago in his New York jail cell. State officials determined he died by suicide, but others have questioned the autopsy and circumstances surrounding his death.

Rumors have been swirling that Clinton might mount a third run for the presidency. Clinton lost in 2008 in the Democratic primary to Barack Obama and 2016 to President Trump.

illary Clinton keeps flirting with running for president again, and the Democrat Party keeps rejecting her advances. You cannot blame Democrats for dismissing a candidacy the only rationale for which is hubris. And you cannot blame Republicans for desiring a candidacy that would take Democrats’ current chaos to another level.

Welcome to the Clinton conundrum. On one hand, Hillary’s ominous omnipresence would signal an impending run if she were anyone else. On the other, Hillary’s two national election losses would signal a permanent retirement if she were anyone else.

As they have been for almost three decades, Democrats are still trying to solve the Clinton riddle. Currently, they have their hands full with a fractured field that refuses to yield clarity. Four months in, and no closer to choosing next year’s nominee, the nominee from three years ago resurfaces.

The current field’s split is frequently forgotten in the focus on a horse race. Biden holds just over one-quarter (27 percent) of Democrats and Warren just under one-quarter (22 percent). The remaining half of Democrats are split, with Sanders holding about 17 percent and the remaining one-third divided among the rest of the Left’s second-tier candidates.

 

Like Scrabble without vowels, it is hard to make much out of this. Enter Hillary Clinton. Suddenly, you can spell “Democrats lose,” but little else.

Clearly she would hurt Democrats in general and Biden in particular — both prospects that delight Republicans.

Just look at the foundation from which Clinton would start. In 2016, she lost 43 percent of Democrats — essentially the party’s entire Left, and at a time when they were much weaker and less agitated. She then went on to lose to Trump, which hardly endears her to the party establishment or the Left. She is far less to the left, which two-thirds of Democrats already support.

A Clinton candidacy would most closely resemble Biden’s. With Biden holding only about one-quarter of Democrats, Clinton would be fighting over a pronounced minority. Nor is Biden likely to drop out, having been running for months, leading now, and having deferred to her last time.

A Clinton candidacy would therefore split the Democrat establishment, putting it somewhere between Warren and Sanders. If you currently see the Democrat race as being among three people, Clinton would make it at least a four-person affair.

Clinton’s problem is that she is simply not good at politics, and she would be even worse for Democrats. Having lost the nomination to Obama in 2008 and the presidency to Trump in 2016, there is no scenario by which she wins the 2020 nomination. To do so, she would have to drive out Biden (the current front-runner), unite the establishment (whose candidate she just ousted), and then draw roughly one-third of the Democrat Left (who rejected her then and now). All that before again facing Trump, who this time will have the advantages of history, incumbency, economy, and money backing him.

 

The first problem with that tall order is that Biden will not leave. He has been there, is leading the field, and can argue plausibly that he is better positioned to beat Trump — after all, he has not already lost to him. Undoubtedly, Biden is the establishment’s best chance, which is why they are not clamoring for Hillary to run.

Saving the Dem Party?

SERIOUS guy who is not a cartoon cutout may enter the Race

EIzUlqJXsAAgKoc?format=jpg&name=small
BLOOMBERG PREPPING PRESIDENTIAL RUN
DEM SHAKEUP

Key Points
  • Mike Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York, is preparing to enter the Democratic presidential primary, according to NBC News, which cited a Bloomberg advisor.
  • “He’s still not sure,” a source told CNBC. This source also said these are “unprecedented times” and that Bloomberg is concerned about what he’s seeing both from Democrats and President Donald Trump.
  • The New York Times reported Thursday, citing people briefed on the plans, that Bloomberg was working on entering at least one Democratic presidential primary and potentially the overall race for the chance to take on Trump.

Howard Wolfson, a top advisor to Bloomberg, released a statement acknowledging Bloomberg’s concern with the state of the race:

Mike believes that Donald Trump represents an unprecedented threat to our nation. In 2016, he spoke out at the Democratic Convention, warning against a Trump presidency. In 2018 he spent more than $100 million to help elect Democrats to ensure that Congress began to hold the President accountable. And this year he helped Democrats win control of both houses of the Virginia legislature. We now need to finish the job and ensure that Trump is defeated — but Mike is increasingly concerned that the current field of candidates is not well positioned to do that. If Mike runs he would offer a new choice to Democrats built on a unique record running America’s biggest city, building a business from scratch and taking on some of America’s toughest challenges as a high-impact philanthropist. Based on his record of accomplishment, leadership and his ability to bring people together to drive change, Mike would be able to take the fight to Trump and win.

Bloomberg has emerged as a force in Democratic politics, mostly because of his deep pockets. He spent more than $110 million backing Democrats during the 2018 congressional midterm elections. The gun control group he backs, Everytown for Gun Safety, spent $2.5 million in Virginia this year, helping the Democratic Party take control of the statehouse for the first time since 1994. Bloomberg earlier this year launched Beyond Carbon, a $500 million group that advocates for energy reform.

Hey Mike, your real battle will be with clowns in the Dem party

Will he come up short?

Here’s How Short Michael Bloomberg Is

michael-bloomberg-short-e1573233943307.j

Michael Bloomberg could lower the bar for presidential height.

Bloomberg, a billionaire and former mayor of New York City, is reportedly preparing to jump into the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.

Bloomberg stands at a full five feet, seven inches, though he once awarded himself an extra three inches on his driver’s license. If elected, he would be the shortest president in recent history.

Maddcow & MSNBC's notion of Fairness, just IS NOT FAIR !

WATCH: Andrew Yang Rips MSNBC for Lack of Speaking Time

Businessman Andrew Yang criticized MSNBC sharply for not giving him adequate speaking time during the fifth Democrat debate.

Andrew Yang (Matthew Perdie / Breitbart News)

EAST POINT, Georgia — 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.

Elizabeth Warren Tops Democrat Field in Speaking Time, Andrew Yang Dead Last

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) led the Democrat field in speaking time during Wednesday evening’s Democrat debate, and Andrew Yang (D) placed last, according to the Washington Post’s analysis following the debate.

.@ABC's analysis of candidate speaking times during the @MSNBC debate tonight:
Warren – 13:54
Biden – 12:57
Buttigieg – 12:25
Sanders – 11:51
Harris – 11:33
Klobuchar – 10:40
Booker – 11:32
Gabbard – 9:20
Steyer – 8:24
Yang – 6:59

MORE DEM MADNESS.  Spending fortunes with little impact, is a Dem habit

Billionaire Democrats Tom Steyer and Michael Bloomberg have spent a combined $200 million on the 2020 Democratic presidential primary — though neither seems to have much to show for it but a slew of advertisements.

The left-wing mega-donor, who made a fortune in fossil fuel investments before becoming a climate change activist, and the former New York City mayor both jumped into the race long after it started, after initially declining to run.

Warren Refuses to Shake Hand...
Details of Exchange Leak...

People familiar with the exchange said Ms. Warren walked over and told Mr. Sanders that she was concerned that, during the debate, he had mischaracterized a conversation they had in 2018 about whether a woman could win the presidency. She has accused him of saying that a woman could not; he has denied that remark.

Appearing frustrated, Mr. Sanders asked to discuss the matter at a different time, said the people, who insisted on anonymity to discuss a sensitive, private conversation. He pointed his finger toward her, then back at himself, before turning and walking away.

Both the Warren and Sanders campaigns declined to comment on Wednesday.

The exchange, video of which was captured by CNN’s cameras, came as tension has escalated between the two leading progressives, after they labored for the past year to abide by a nonaggression pact.

CAUCUS CHAOS: NEW IOWA RULES COULD SPARK CLASHING CLAIMS OF VICTORY...

Dems view flawed front-runners with anxiety...

Bloomberg seen as 'best bet' to beat Trump...

Political Turmoil 'New Normal' for 2020...

Democratic voters fear their party is on the brink of repeating the mistakes that sent President Trump to the White House as they consider their choices weeks before the state’s first-in-the-nation caucuses.

The four front-running contenders are all battling to prove they are the most likely to defeat Trump, a reflection both of the president’s looming presence over the race and the anxiety felt by Democratic voters, who fear fatal flaws with each candidate could doom their hopes of winning back the White House.

In conversations with nearly two dozen Iowa Democrats before and after Tuesday’s debate, many analyzed the unsettled Democratic primary through the lens of a television pundit.

They weighed the relative strengths and weaknesses of former Vice President Joe Biden, Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) and more often than not expressed concerns about what they are certain will be a tough general election fight in November.

“Our country can’t afford to have a candidate or a president like we currently have. We’ve got to pick someone who can get elected,” said Sarah Binder, a retiree in Ames who is waffling between supporting Buttigieg and entrepreneur Andrew Yang. “I’m very anxious that ... all the fake news and the ugliness that the current president will employ to try to win will sway this American public that voted him in to begin with.”

LOONY LEFT - everyday is anti-white Racism day

The New Racism

Walter-Williams-pic.png?resize=143,204&s

By Walter E. Williams

A voter may dislike a black, homosexual or female candidate, but it’s not likely that he would openly admit it. However, diversity-crazed leftist/progressive Democrats have openly condemned the physical characteristics of some of their 2020 presidential candidates. Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are be leading the polls despite the fact that they have been condemned as old white men. While Pete Buttigieg is homosexual, something that pleases diversity crazies, he is also a white man, young and religious. With Kamala Harris’ departure from the race, the Democratic field has lost one of its persons of color. Another, Senator Cory Booker, stands at 2% in the polls; his days are numbered. That means the only Democratic candidates polling high are those condemned as old white people — two men and one woman, Elizabeth Warren.

LaTosha Brown, the co-founder of Black Voters Matter, said she was initially eager for Joe Biden to enter the race but now has second thoughts. Brown said: “I’m over white men running the country. I don’t know if him (sic) getting in changes the field. He has name recognition, but his strength is also his weakness.” Former presidential candidate Howard Dean lamented, “If we have two old white guys at the top of this ticket, we will lose.” The newest entry into the presidential sweepstakes, Michael Bloomberg, had to apologize for what some see as his diversity insensitiveness namely that of calling fellow presidential candidate Cory Booker “well-spoken” in a TV interview. The New Jersey senator said he was “taken aback” by what he saw as Bloomberg’s racist “trope.”

Michael Moore gave us his racist warning: “Two-thirds of all white guys voted for Trump. That means anytime you see three white guys walking at you, down the street toward you, two of them voted for Trump. You need to move over to the other sidewalk because these are not good people that are walking toward you. You should be afraid of them.”

This is the new racism, much of it learned and taught at our nation’s colleges. George Orwell said, “Some ideas are so stupid that only intellectuals believe them.” The stupid ideas about inclusion and diversity originate with academics on college campuses. If their ideas didn’t infect the rest of society, they might be a source of entertainment. But these cancerous ideas have infected society. Statements such as “I’m over white men running the country,” or “If we have two old white guys at the top of this ticket, we will lose” are examples of that cancer.
