Democrats Engage in Angry Shouting Match in Charleston, South Carolina

  The worst debate in the history of American politics: The CBS News moderators came under fire on social media Tuesday as the Democratic presidential debate in South Carolina grew heated, with crosstalk often drowning them out. Meghan McCain compared the debate’s atmosphere to the contentious discussions she faces on “The View,” saying, “these moderators […]

How Bad Was It?

  It was bad — very, very bad: Mike Bloomberg’s millions in campaign spending flew right out the window Wednesday night. The billionaire’s self-bankrolled presidential bid was torn to shreds in the opening minutes of Wednesday’s Democratic debate as his opponents skewered him for his checkered past on sexual harassment and his record on stop-and-frisk. […]

DNC Sold Out to Bloomberg ‘Because He’s Got a Billion F***ing Dollars!’

  Michael Moore at a Bernie Sanders rally Friday in Iowa: They are removing the rule to be on the debate stage, where it says you have to have so many people donating to you — otherwise instead of 27 people on the stage we’d have 270 people on the stage. You had to show […]

Elizabeth Warren’s Media Helpers Try to Revive Her Campaign at Bernie’s Expense

  Tuesday’s Democratic presidential debate was so white that Antifa would punch it in the face, and moderators for CNN made it clear who they favored among the six white Democrats assembled on the Des Moines stage.

Warren Fades; Democrats Worried UPDATE: Cory Booker Drops Out

  With the final pre-Iowa debate looming Tuesday night, the 2020 presidential campaign is looking shaky for Democrats.

Billionaire Dictator Tom Steyer Has a ‘Solution’ for the Housing ‘Crisis’

  Anyone who has read Thomas Sowell’s The Vision of the Anointed: Self-Congratulation as a Basis for Social Policy understands the worldview of “progressive” billionaire Tom Steyer. There is no problem that cannot be solved, such people believe, if (a) we put “enlightened” people in charge, and (b) we give them unlimited power and taxpayer […]

Beto Beaten by Buttigieg in Debate

  The very first time I heard Pete Buttigieg speak — during my trip to South Carolina in March — I was impressed by him. Of course, his policy ideas are all entirely wrong, but Buttigieg’s demeanor and delivery are excellent. He combines a policy wonk’s mastery of details with a folksy Midwestern manner in […]

‘Stupid and Crazy’: Debates Expose Democrat Party at War With Itself

  After Marianne Williamson emerged as the surprise winner of Tuesday’s Democrat presidential debate, the second night’s performance on Wednesday saw Joe Biden get tag-teamed by his rivals, and Tulsi Gabbard turning the tables on Kamala Harris. Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) have become dismayed by these donnybrooks: Democratic lawmakers were left […]
