Joe Biden in Danger of Humiliating Loss in Iowa, Top Democrats Warn

Bloomberg) -- Joe Biden risks a humiliating third or fourth-place finish in Iowa early next year, according to nearly a dozen senior Democrats in the state who attribute it to what they see as a poorly organized operation that has failed to engage with voters and party leaders.

With fewer than 100 days until the Feb. 3 caucuses, Biden is failing to spend the time with small groups of voters and party officials that Iowans expect and his campaign’s outreach has been largely ineffective, according to 11 senior Democrats in the state. They worry that could send Biden to a crippling loss behind Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg, who have highly organized campaigns in Iowa, said the Democrats, most of whom spoke on condition of anonymity to speak candidly about the campaign.

Biden didn’t join the 2020 presidential race until April, months after his rivals had set up camp and secured the most sought-after hires. He entered as the front-runner, a position that has slowly eroded as Warren’s and Buttigieg’s standings have risen. Recent polls have Warren tied with Biden and one survey shows Buttigieg in third place in the state.

Even though Biden told reporters in Iowa last week he was “working like hell” to win, Democrats there say he has a lot of ground to make up.

Is there anybody else? Democrats on candidates

With doubts rising about former Vice President Joseph R. Biden’s ability to finance a multistate primary campaign, persistent questions about Senator Elizabeth Warren’s viability in the general election and skepticism that Mayor Pete Buttigieg, of South Bend, Ind., can broaden his appeal beyond white voters, Democratic leaders are engaging in a familiar rite: fretting about who is in the race and longing for a white knight to enter the contest at the last minute.

The Times’ article referenced a variety of possible contenders who could make 11th-hour bids, including former Secretary of State John Kerry and former Attorney General Eric Holder, the latter of whom was described as “considering a last-minute entry.”

Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick said he’d been “nudged by friends to reconsider” his decision not to run, while Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown, who nearly ran, conceded that “the pressure on him to reconsider from labor leaders, Democratic officials and donors has ‘become more frequent.’”

Bernie wasn't mentioned as he can't win and will likely be dead by election day anyway.

What if...John Roberts resigns as Chief Justice

“The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.”

Article I, Section 3, Clause 6
No Chief Justice, no impeachment trial. Trump nominates Brett Kavanaugh

Gunfire erupts at vigil for victim of Texas homecoming shooting

Your favorite people Lefty, nice job

Gunfire erupted during a vigil on Sunday night for a person shot dead at a homecoming party in Texas over the weekend.

An NBC Dallas-Fort Worth SUV was struck at least three times, a reporter with the station said.

Video showed multiple bullet holes in the vehicle’s window and frame. The reporter, Diana Zoga, said that neither she nor her photographer were struck. There didn’t appear to be other injuries, she said.

It would have been an impeachable offense for Trump to inform the Democrat party leaders of raid

an easy yet prudent decision.

Texas A&M Commerce Homecoming Party Mass Shooting (Twerk or Treat party)

13/90 in progress

A Texas A&M University-Commerce homecoming party was the scene of a mass shooting Saturday night, October 26, 2019, the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office says. At least two people were killed and 14 others were wounded in the shooting. A graphic video of the aftermath was posted on Snapchat and shared on Twitter. In the video, there appears to be numerous victims at The Party Venue in Greenville, Texas, which is located 20 miles away from the school’s campus.

The Halloween and homecoming party was not sanctioned by the university, the school says.
The Sheriff’s Office reported during their first press conference that a total of 14 victims were shot, and that two people were dead. Others were injured fleeing from the venue. No deputies fired shots during the incident. No arrests have been made and the suspected gunman remains at-large, police say.

Jobin Panicker of WFAA-ABC tweeted, “No arrests have been made. Whereabouts of shooter unknown. At least 10 victims have been identified by law enforcement. Others may have sought medical help privately.”

Now Desperate For Campaign Cash, Hypocrite Joe Biden Drops His Opposition To Super PACs

Nobody wants Joe.

By reversing course and dropping his opposition to super PACs, Joe Biden has all but admitted he’s getting swamped in fundraising.

More competence on display from the Democrat frontrunner, Latino outreach edition

But there’s one problem. The Biden campaign failed to purchase, or even lock down the @TodosConBiden Twitter handle before announcing the new effort — prompting the president’s reelection team to do what it does best: troll.

Now, the Trump campaign is using to mock the former vice president, with a landing page that says in both English and Spanish, “Oops, Joe forgot about Latinos.” The page also links out to the president’s own Latino outreach coalition “Latinos for Trump.” And the @TodosConBiden Twitter account, in the possession of the Trump campaign, has already begun posting unflattering counter messaging targeting Biden.

Rep Katie Hill Flees Reporters Questions, Calls Police On Reporter

California Democratic Rep. Katie Hill refused to answer questions from the Daily Caller regarding her extramarital affair with a male congressional staffer and if she is considering resigning.

This comes after Hill’s office called the police on the Daily Caller for staking out her office Tuesday. After police went inside the office, an officer approached the reporter and asked if he was a member of the press, to which he responded “yes.” The officer then went back into the office and left about five minutes later.
“Intimate photos of me and another individual were published by Republican operatives on the internet without my consent,” Hill said. She “notified Capitol Hill police who are investigating the situation and potential legal violations of those who posted and distributed the photos, and therefore will have no further comment on the digital materials.”
