Warren falls while O’Rourke becomes 2020 flavor of the month

Mon, 12/17/2018 - 16:35

Elizabeth Warren, U.S. Senator from Massachusetts and progressive activist, has been slowly fading in terms of her 2020 star power. A series of missteps recently, concerning her ancestral heritage and connection to Native American tribes, seem to have turned Democratic primary voters off and sent them looking in other directions. At the same time, Texas native […]

Will Saudi Arabia bring Democracy to the USA?

Fri, 12/14/2018 - 14:00

Ah, Saudi Arabia: Homeland of Osama bin Laden and almost all of the 9/11 skyjackers, with their government having actively supported the 9/11 terrorists. Saudi Arabia, which everyone in the world (except Donald Trump) believes attacked, dismembered and apparently dissolved the body parts of a permanent legal resident of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Saudi Arabia, […]

Julian Castro forms 2020 exploratory committee

Wed, 12/12/2018 - 19:03

I want to say “first in the pool,” but he’s not the first Democrat to make a formal move toward a 2020 presidential run. There are 2 other declared candidates, Rep. John Delaney of Maryland and Richard Ojeda, a former congressional candidate in West Virginia, both have already launched campaigns. Castro is the first “big name” […]

Lame duck sessions un-American?

Mon, 12/10/2018 - 15:33

Every time a new party comes to power, the old party tries to ram through as much legislation as they can, between the election and the installation of the new government. The party gaining power always complains and sometimes vows to “fix” the system. But then, they take office, and they, too, try to do […]

Republicans hold Mississippi in Senate runoff election

Wed, 11/28/2018 - 13:32

It was being forecast as a nailbiter for Republicans, a possible Alabam redux where an easily winnable seat for the GOP could quite possibly be eaten by Democrats with a wave of enthusiasm. In the end, it wasn’t very close, and Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith cruised to a 7 point victory over Democrat Mike Espy. Hyde-Smith […]

Everybody’s talking about the dozens of Democrats who want to run in 2020. But we like to look at both sides, so we have already had two stories about possible Republican challengers to Donald Trump.

Kasich: I might run against Trump in 2020 to “send a message”

Mon, 11/26/2018 - 17:35

Ohio Gov. John Kasich didn’t come too close to the GOP nomination in 2016, though he was one of the last candidates standing along with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz before eventually bowing out to Donald Trump. Kasich ran as the anti-Trump and has continued to be a very vocal opponent of the President ever since. […]

Tue, 11/20/2018 - 16:50

The 2018 midterms are still – still – not entirely settled as one more Senate race needs to be wrapped up.

Pelosi in Tough Battle for Speaker’s Gavel

Thu, 11/15/2018 - 20:55

Nancy Pelosi is the representative both sides love to hate. Republicans hate her so much that she appeared in campaign ads across the country—as the devil who could become Speaker of the House if you didn’t elect your local Republican candidate. And, largely to her efforts, the Democrats flipped the most seats since Watergate and […]

Thu, 11/15/2018 - 14:28

After last week’s election, Donald Trump was hoping he could change the dialogue from electoral politics to international relations.

Democrats will take control of the House, winning somewhere around 34 seats which well exceeds the 24 needed to win.

Well, Democrats see it rising in their quest to take back the House, but maybe not the Senate.
