DEMOCRATS WANT A NEW FACE, BUT WHO?
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, Democrats want a fresh face as a 2020 presidential nominee; however, they have nothing. This is easier said than done as the Democrats have no bench. In the eight years of Obama, the Democrat party was decimated. It was only Obama who benefited. Democrats say they want a new face, yet according to a recent Harvard/Harris poll, the top three favorites for a presidential run were former Vice President Joe Biden, Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. So who is it that could possible run? Will the old guard step aside and let the next generation replace them. Is that possible when Democrat politicians find it so hard to give up their power?
Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden are among those touted as serious Democratic presidential contenders in 2020, but three-out-of-four Democrats think their party needs to turn to someone new.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 73% of Likely Democratic Voters believe their party should look for a fresh face to run for president in 2020. Just 16% disagree and think the party should promote a candidate who has already run in the past. Eleven percent (11%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
As for Clinton, 58% now believe she has been bad for the Democratic Party. Only 22% think she’s been good for Democrats, while 12% say she’s had no impact on the party.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) Questions I.G. Horowitz During House Judiciary Committee Hearing … Strzok Hated Trump Yet He Was Investigating Him? (VIDEO)
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) eviscerated Peter Strzok …
Rep. Jim Jordan pretty much summed up the entire line of questioning and bias when it came to FBI Peter Strzok when Jordan stated, “the guy who hates the President, the guy who ran the Clinton investigation, the guy who ran the Russian investigation then gets assigned to the Special Counsel team?” Imagine that. The Special Counsel was named on May 17, 2017. On May 18, 2017, one day later Peter Strzok said on page 405 that this could be an investigation that could lead to impeachment.
Jordan asks Horowitz, “dont you think that sounds and looks like to regular American people than just casting a cloud on the overall investigations? Then Jordan stated, what bothers me most is Peter Strzok’s attitude (4:20). Its what bothers Americans about this whole ordeal. Peter Strzok texts on Aug 26, 2016, “I just went to a Southern Virginia Walmart, I can smell the Trump supporters.” This is the arrogance, condescension and elitism of the FBI and why Americans are so mad. There are two sets of standards.
AND YOU WONDER WHY COMEY HAS GONE QUIET …
Inspector General Horowitz confirmed Monday during a Congressional hearing that former FBI Director James Comey is under investigation for his handling of classified information. James Comey is in a world of trouble. Former FBI Director Comey penned 7 memos stemming from 9 conversations with President Trump of which at least 4 of 7 of the memos contained classified information. A fired Comey then gave contents of his memos to his friend Daniel Richman to leak to the New York Times. The purpose of this was to prompt a Special Counsel, which is what occurred. It would appear those leaked memos are now being investigated by the IG.
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz confirmed publicly Monday that his office is investigating James Comey for his handling of classified information as part of memos he shared documenting discussions with President Trump.
The inspector general’s comments confirmed reports dating back to April that the ex-FBI director was facing scrutiny, amid revelations that at least two of the memos he shared with his friend, Columbia University Professor Daniel Richman, contained information now deemed classified.
The confirmation came during Monday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, where Horowitz and FBI Director Christopher Wray testified on the findings in the IG’s report on the handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe.
From The Hill, Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended the firing of of the FBI’s top two former executives, FBI Director and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and warned that the forthcoming IG report on the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton probe could result in more people being fired.
On the eve of the release of a potentially explosive new report, Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended the termination of the FBI’s top two former executives and warned that the forthcoming report on the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton probe could result in more people being fired.
In an exclusive interview with The Hill’s new TV show “Rising,” which aired Thursday morning, Sessions defended the decision to fire ex-Director James Comey, who he said “made a big mistake” that belied a “serious breach of discipline.”
Sessions also made clear that he is open to firing more employees if the Justice Department inspector general’s soon-to-be-released report warrants it.
“I think it will be a lengthy report and a careful report,” he told “Rising” co-host Buck Sexton. “I think it will help us better fix any problems that we have and reassure the American people that some of the concerns that have been raised are not true.”
Everyone awaits the release of the IG’s report later today.
May 2018 Jobs Report is Great News for Everyone in America Except Democrats Running for Office in 2018
DO DEMOCRATS WANT POSITIVE JOBS NUMBERS FOR AMERICA? THE ANSWER IS NO, NOT WHEN TRUMP GETS THE KUDOS.
As reported at CNBC, the May 2018 jobs report was good for everyone, except Democrat politicians looking for jobs in the 2018 midterm elections. The reality is that the U.S. economy is booming and it is President Donald Trump and the GOP who are responsible. Democrats have been nothing more than obstructionists and the “resistance” to President Trump’s agenda. Now all Americans, black, Hispanic, Asian, white, female, male, are all befitting from Trump’s economic agenda. Pelosi and Democrats would have you believe this is bad. Really? This is all they got and it is a lie.
- Friday’s monthly employment report was great news for anyone looking for a job in America – unless you happen to be a Democrat running for Congress.
- That’s because voters who are employed are historically more likely to favor incumbents than those who are out of work.
- With the jobless rate now down to 3.8 percent, Democrats in 435 House districts and 35 Senate races face a major challenge as they try to unseat Republican majorities in both chambers.
Friday’s monthly employment report was great news for anyone looking for a job in America – unless you happen to be a Democrat running for Congress.
Among the many contentious topics swirling around this year’s campaign, none is more important than the perennial issue of employment. Voters who are employed are historically more likely to favor incumbents than those who are out of work.
That poses a major challenge for Democrats in 435 House districts and 35 Senate races who are looking to unseat Republican majorities in both chambers.
The economy added roughly 223,000 net new jobs in May, pushing the jobless rate a tick lower to 3.8 percent, an 18-year low.
