WOW, THIS DUDE THINKS A LOT OF HIMSELF … ACTUALLY ERIC NOTORIETY IS NOT A GOOD THING.
Republicans be fearful, former Obama attorney general Eric Holder is considering a run for the White House in 2020. According to Yahoo News, Holder believes that he has a certain status as the former attorney general and a certain familiarity as the first African-American attorney general. HUH? These liberals are legends in their own minds. Most people probably have no clue who Holder is and could care less that he was the first black attorney general. It appears he is going to try and use his Obama coattails and be a part of the resistance to gain favor with the LEFT. These Lefties just cannot go away after they lose. Most individuals remember Holder for being a part of the gun running disaster known as Fast & Furious and the fact that he was held in contempt of Congress. Then as Legal Insurrection reminds us there was that little incident where he refused to prosecute the Black Panthers for voter intimidation.
More than two years after leaving the Obama administration, former Attorney General Eric Holder is reentering the political fray.
His goal: to lead the legal resistance to Donald Trump’s agenda — and perhaps even run against the president in 2020.
Seized by a sense of urgency to oppose Trump and restore what he regards as America’s best self, Holder is mulling a White House bid of his own, according to three sources who have spoken to him and are familiar with his thinking.
“Up to now, I have been more behind-the-scenes,” Holder told Yahoo News in an exclusive interview about his plans. “But that’s about to change. I have a certain status as the former attorney general. A certain familiarity as the first African-American attorney general. There’s a justified perception that I’m close to President Obama. So I want to use whatever skills I have, whatever notoriety I have, to be effective in opposing things that are, at the end of the day, just bad for the country.
But Monday’s event was also something bigger: a coming-out party of sorts for a figure who sees his work in California as a springboard to a new role as the key legal architect — and one of the major public faces — of the nationwide progressive pushback against President Trump.
Rarely mentioned as a 2020 contender and controversial while in office, Holder would enter any Democratic primary contest as a long shot. Even his engagement with the resistance is something of a surprise. For most of his career, Holder was seen as a conventional, mild-mannered figure. But he grew more pugnacious as attorney general, in part because Republicans never stopped attacking him, and he wound up pursuing a sharply progressive agenda during Obama’s second term.
Eric Holder left office with a 26% approval rating. In his mind he thinks he is the next voice of the Democrat party. What a delusional world these Libs really do live in. All we have to say is RUN, ERIC, RUN!!!
THE POLITICAL RHETORIC IS GETTING OUT OF CONTROL …
As per s CBS News poll, an overwhelming number of Americans believe the political debate in America is becoming increasing uncivil. Well, maybe that is because it is. But then again, hasn’t it been uncivil for quite some time? However, since Donald Trump has become president, the LEFT has completely become unhinged and their so-called leaders have said some shameful and hateful things. Last week we were witness to a far-Left individual who volunteered on the Bernie Sanders campaign attempt a mass assassination of Republicans. Sadly, Americans who are polled only seem to be creatures of the moment as reported at the Politico, a majority approve of Congress’ handling of shooting. Wake up America, talk is cheap. One week later, Democrats are back to their old ways. What is ironic is that 85% of Democrats polled said that the current tone if political debate is encouraging violence and yet it is that that are causing the violence.
Members of Congress are getting positive ratings for the way they responded to the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, last week. President Trump gets slightly lower — though still net positive — evaluations for his response to the attack, partly because Democrats are less likely to approve of his handling than of Congress’. Fifty-three percent of Americans approved of Congress’ response, and 29 percent disapproved, while 46 percent approved of President Trump’s response, and 36 percent disapproved.
And while Congress and many observers called for a more civil tone to political debate in the wake of the events, Americans of all political leanings overwhelmingly say that the tone and level of civility in our political debates has been getting worse in recent years.
These views are largely the same across ideologies, too, as about two-thirds of liberals, conservatives and even more moderates feel things have gotten worse.
Seriously America, take a good hard look to who is promoting and causing the violence.
MIGHTY BIG TALK FROM A NO TERM PRESIDENT …
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (S) said on Wednesday that he doesn’t believe President Donald Trump will win a second term as president. Really? Aren’t these the same people that said Donald Trump would never be elected? Also Bernie, its not like you will ever be elected president. Let’s get one thing straight folks, Bernie Sanders is not an Independent. Sanders is a socialist who ran on the Democrat ticket and nearly defeated Hillary Clinton to be the nominee for president of the Democrat Party. Don’t think the American people, and especially real independents, don’t see the fact that Democrats have obstructed the Trump administration at every turn and see thee liberal MSM playing their typical bias games and reporting. Sanders stated, “In terms of the first three months in office, Donald Trump is the least popular president in the history of polling.” Hmm, just a reminder to Sanders and the LEFT, wasn’t the polling wrong prior to Trump being elected president?
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) on Wednesday said he doesn’t believe President Trump will win a second term as president.
“In terms of the first three months in office, Donald Trump is the least popular president in the history of polling,” Sanders told The Associated Press while speaking in New York. “I do not believe that if Trump continues these policies that he’s going to be reelected. Nor do I think that the Republicans are going to do well in 2018.”
Sanders, who is planning to launch a cross-country tour with Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez next week, said a more progressive movement is underway that will hurt Republicans’ electoral chances.
“The momentum right now is with the progressive movement in this country,” Sanders said. “And I think the Republicans are on the defensive and will be on the defensive increasingly.”
Sanders pointed to Tuesday’s special election in Kansas, in which the Republican candidate narrowly won the House seat vacated by now-CIA Director Mike Pompeo in a deep-red district that Trump won overwhelmingly.
Keep up your games liberals and once again you will find yourself in another losing election. You still do not understand the connection between Donald Trump and the voters. Frankly, it is kind of comical to see the LEFT acting in the same manner and thinking they will get different results. Wait, isn’t that the definition of crazy?
WOW, IF THIS IS THE DEMOCRAT BENCH FOR PRESIDENT, THEY ARE IN FOR A WORLD OF HURT FOR DECADES ...
Donald Trump has not yet been sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, and The Hill already has a list of the top 15 Democrat challengers for 2020. I must say, if this is the Democrat bench, they are in deep, deep trouble. No wonder no one ran against Hillary Clinton in the Democrat primaries, there was no one of any substance to run. The Democrat challengers for 2020 is a who’s who from Pocahontas, Elizabeth Warren to old white fossils like Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden who will be 79 and 77 respectively on election day 2020. Honestly, unless some one emerges between now and 2020, the Democrats have nothing.
If you think its too soon to be discussing 2020, that’s because it is. Hillary Clinton, Democrats and the MSM have not recovered from the Trump presidential victory and they are already putting Hillary back in the mix for 2020.
1. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) – Really, Pocahontas is going to run for president? Sorry, this woman is way too far left.
2. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) – He will be 79 next Election Day. Also, Sanders sold out the people who backed him in the primaries by backing Hillary Clinton, even after the world found out that the DNC and Team Hillary conspired against him.
3. Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.) -The past 8 years of Barack Obama may have sunk his chances.
4. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) – Who?
5. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y) – And other than a woman, why is she running?
6. First lady Michelle Obama- Please, Michelle is not running for president. Barack Obama had no coattails, not even for his wife. This is a liberal pipe dream.
7. Gov. John Hickenlooper (Colo.)
8. Sen. Chris Murphy (Conn.)
9. Vice President Joe Biden – Not happening. Biden would be 77 years old on election day.
10. Gov. Andrew Cuomo (N.Y.)
11. Sen.-elect Kamala Harris (Calif.) HUH? And her qualifications are what? She would be just as experienced as Obama was, how did that work out for us America?
12. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – Would Hillary try for a 3rd time? Sorry, can’t see this one happening. She has crashed and burned too many times. And she would be 4 years older.
13. Former Gov. Deval Patrick (Mass.) – See #3.
14. Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.) – Seriously? After his disastrous, moon-bat VP debate, no one would let this loon near the nuclear codes.
15. Oprah Winfrey – Oprah? Talk about your desperate measures for the Democrat party.
U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith Haults Michigan Recount Charade by Green Party candidate Jill Stein
MICHIGAN PRESIDENTIAL VOTE RECOUNT STOPPED …
U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith has sided with a state appeals court Wednesday in stopping the Michigan presidential vote recount. Previously, a Michigan appeals court ruled 3-0 that Green Party candidate Jill Stein should not have been allowed to demand a recount because she is not an “aggrieved candidate.” Gee, really? How would anyone be allowed to claim they were aggrieved in the voting process when they only won 1.1% of the vote? Thus, the recount sham on the part of Green Party candidate Jill Stein is over and it is as it was, TRUMP WINS MICHIGAN!!! In fact, thanks to Jill Stein’s joke recount efforts, Trump picked up even more votes than originally determined.
A federal judge has stopped the hand recount of nearly 5 million ballots in Michigan, a decision that seems to secure Donald Trump’s narrow victory in the traditionally blue state.
U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith, who effectively ordered the recount to begin Monday, sided with a state appeals court Wednesday in halting the effort, ABC News reported.
On Tuesday, a Michigan appeals court ruled 3-0 that Green Party candidate Jill Stein should not have been allowed to demand a recount because she is not an “aggrieved candidate.” Goldsmith, after hearing arguments from the state Republican Party and GOP attorney general, agreed.
“Because there is no basis for this court to ignore the Michigan court’s ruling and make an independent judgment regarding what the Michigan Legislature intended by the term ‘aggrieved,’ plaintiffs have not shown an entitlement to a recount,” Goldsmith said.
