Moderate Joe Biden Wants Tax Hikes Twice as Big as Hillary Clinton Proposed in 2016

One of the recurring questions of the 2020 Democratic presidential primaries is whether the party has lurched too far to the left.

This topic has manifested itself most prominently in the divide between the more progressive candidates, Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D–Mass) and Bernie Sanders (I–Vt.), and the relative moderates, former Vice President Joe Biden and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg. It has largely taken the form of a debate over the merits of Medicare for All, a single-payer health care system that Warren and Sanders support and that Biden and Buttigieg do not.

Warren's rise over the summer, and the persistent strong support for Sanders, have given ammunition to Democrats favoring a sharper turn to the left. But Warren's campaign has faltered following the release of her Medicare for All financing and transition plans. That and the contemporaneous rise of Buttigieg to the primary's top tier have provided grist for the moderates.

Yet the best way to answer the question may require another comparison—not simply between the candidates in today's race, but between the current field and the 2016 nominee, Hillary Clinton, particularly on the issue of taxes.

A winning platform for sure!

Suicide Hotline volunteer shocked when Hillary Clinton tried to place an order

A volunteer for the New York Metro Suicide Hotline service was shocked when she received a call from former Secretary Hillary Clinton. She was even more shocked when Clinton tried to order a suicide from the service like a pizza.

“She was very cordial,” the volunteer who declined to be identified said. “She said, ‘I’d like to order a suicide.’

“I told her, ‘That’s not how it works, ma’am,’ but she refused to take a no for an answer. She kept saying, ‘Do you know who I am? I’m Hillary f**king Clinton. I’m the President of the United States. Are you trying to tell me that you’re going to deny me my Constitutional right of accommodation?'”

The volunteer was highly skeptical but she took down Clinton’s “order” and delivered it to the NYPD.

Rumors have circulated about the Clintons having something to do with the suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, but those have been debunked since Epstein confessed to killing himself on August 10 in a New York jail.

Support for Elizabeth Warren drops to lowest since August in White House race: Reuters/Ipsos poll

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Support for U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren dropped nationally to its lowest level in four months, and nearly one in three potential Democratic primary voters say they do not know which candidate to pick with the first nominating contests less than two months away, according to a Reuters/Ipsos public opinion poll.

The poll, conducted on Wednesday and Thursday, found the level of indecision has jumped among of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents after an already wide slate of candidates underwent a considerable amount of recent turnover ahead of the November 2020 election.

U.S. Senator Kamala Harris of California quit the race this week, and two new candidates, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, jumped in the race late last month.

The latest poll found that support declined for all of the top candidates, including Warren, when compared with a similar poll that ran on Nov. 20-22.

Civilization is at stake: Pelosi lets slip at CNN town hall that denying Trump a 2nd term is prior

Nervous, hesitant and, at times, struggling to put together coherent sentences, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., let slip during a CNN town hall Thursday evening that denying President Donald Trump a second term is high on her agenda.

“What will the checks be on this president if he is reelected?” an audience member asked, assuming the impeachment process fails to remove Trump from office.

“Let’s not even contemplate that,” Pelosi said, with a nervous laugh. “Because tha-tha-that really, for the damage that this administration has done to America — America’s a great country and we can sustain — two terms? I don’t know.”

The “damage” she speaks of appears to be an opinion reserved for her party and their media allies.

“Can we not have any more questions about impeachment?” she asked at one point. “I don’t mind questions, but to ask me questions through the prism of the White House is like, what?”

On the day she called for articles of impeachement to be drawn up. Loony old bird.

Young boy invites entire kindergarten class to his adoption hearing

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — It's been said time and time again, there's no place like home, especially come the holidays. On Thursday in Kent County, 36 children became part of their forever homes.

One child named Michael Orlando Clark Jr. invited his entire kindergarten class to attend his adoption hearing. The class joined him Thursday morning as he celebrated joining his new family.

"We began the school year as a family," Clark's teacher said. "Family doesn't have to be DNA, because family is support and love."

Each of Clark's classmates introduced themselves and told the Judge why they were there. Many expressed their love for Clark.

"Michael is my best friend," his classmate, Steven said.

The courtroom erupted with applause after Clark and his new parents banged the gavel, making the adoption official.

'I was crushed': Clinton says Trump inauguration was 'one of the hardest days of my life'

Hillary Clinton said that attending President Trump’s inauguration was one of the most difficult days of her life.

Clinton made the remarks Wednesday during an interview with radio personality Howard Stern on The Howard Stern Show. She said that she was crushed by seeing Trump sworn in as president.

“You know, I went to the inauguration of Donald Trump, which was one of the hardest days of my life, to be honest,” Clinton said.

“When you’re standing there watching this guy, what the hell is going through your head?” Stern asked, noting that he was watching her even more than he was watching Trump.

“Obviously, I was crushed, I was disappointed, and I was really surprised because I couldn’t figure out what had happened,” she said.

Clinton pointed out that when Trump was inaugurated, she attended the ceremony as a former first lady and out of a sense of duty for the tradition.

“A lot of people said to me, ‘Don’t put yourself through that, don’t go,’” Clinton recalled, “and I said, ‘Look, I ran for president because I love this country, I wanted to serve this country, I thought I would have been a really good president.’”

"“And then he started on that speech, which was so bizarre, and that’s when I got really worried,” Clinton said. “It’s not politics, it’s not what a president does. A president is supposed to try to reach out to people who weren’t for him or her.”

By calling them a basket full of deplorables.....

John Kerry endorses Joe Biden for president



Former Secretary of State John F. Kerry endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden's presidential candidacy on Thursday.

“I believe Joe Biden is the President our country desperately needs right now, not because I’ve known Joe so long, but because I know Joe so well. I’ve never before seen the world more in need of someone who on day one can begin the incredibly hard work of putting back together the world Donald Trump has smashed apart," Kerry said in a statement, according to the Biden campaign. "There’s never been a time more urgent for leadership at home that can work for the middle class and tackle existential issues like climate change where we are moving dangerously backwards."

Kerry, who served in the Senate for nearly 30 years, also called Biden "uniquely the person running for president who can beat Donald Trump" while also being able to "get to work on day one at home and in the world with no time to waste."

He will join Biden on his "No Malarkey" tour on Friday in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. He will also travel with the former vice president to New Hampshire this weekend.

Kerry also, in an interview with the Washington Post, acknowledged and dismissed Biden's frequent slip-ups asking, "Who hasn't done that over a lifetime? He is just honest, straightforward. He's a Joe that represents the middle class of America and understands them, I think, in ways that will reach way beyond Donald Trump in a general election."

Ol' Hairy Legs is a shoo-in now!! Doesn't Kerry have a son working for the Ukrainian oil company too?

Pelosi Snaps: Dont Mess With Me!

Nancy Pelosi snapped at a reporter who suggested she hated the president, angrily telling him, “Don’t mess with me!”

Pelosi was leaving a press conference on Capitol Hill when the confrontation happened.

“I don’t hate anybody…we don’t hate anybody in the world,” said Pelosi.

She then returned to the podium to call Donald Trump a “coward” not helping child victims of gun violence, dreamers and caring about man-made climate change while also accusing him of violating his oath of office.

“As a Catholic I resent your using the word ‘hate’ in a sentence that addresses me – I don’t hate anyone,” said Pelosi.

“I still pray for the president, I pray for the president all the time so don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that,” she snarled.

“Nancy Pelosi just used her Catholicism to defend impeaching President Trump. Apparently she can’t be bothered to use it to defend preborn children,” remarked Jack Posobiec.

Dem Witness Noah Feldman Penned Fawning Defense of Islamic Shariah Law

Harvard Law professor and Democrat witness Noah Feldman took the witness stand yesterday in front of the House Judiciary Committee. Feldman wrote in a New York Times op-ed published on March 16, 2008 that “Islamic law offered the most liberal and humane legal principles available anywhere in the world.”

He also juxtaposed Sharia with English common law, and claimed the West “needs Shariah and Islam”.

Some of the key paragraphs of Noah Feldman’s op-ed are as follows:

…the outrage about according a degree of official status to Shariah in a Western country should come as no surprise. No legal system has ever had worse press. To many, the word “Shariah” conjures horrors of hands cut off, adulterers stoned and women oppressed. By contrast, who today remembers that the much-loved English common law called for execution as punishment for hundreds of crimes, including theft of any object worth five shillings or more? How many know that until the 18th century, the laws of most European countries authorized torture as an official component of the criminal-justice system? As for sexism, the common law long denied married women any property rights or indeed legal personality apart from their husbands. When the British applied their law to Muslims in place of Shariah, as they did in some colonies, the result was to strip married women of the property that Islamic law had always granted them — hardly progress toward equality of the sexes.
