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. We haven’t seen the memo from CNN chief Jeff Zucker, but it was obvious that the assignment was […]

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. Unless you believe Joe Biden can beat Trump — and I’m not sure Biden can even make it to the end of February — any Democrat has got to be worried about Bernie Sanders, the avowed socialist, […]

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 […]

‘Dark Psychic Forces’ 2020

  As John Hoge reminds his readers this morning, when I went to South Carolina in March to cover Marianne Williamson’s presidential campaign, I was the only national reporter covering her. Nobody thought she had a chance, but last night in the CNN debate, she got the biggest applause of the night with her advocacy […]

Marianne Williamson Will Share CNN Debate Stage With Elizabeth Warren

  The lineup for the second round of Democrat presidential debates — July 30-31 in Detroit, televised by CNN — will feature Marianne Williamson on the first night, along with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Meanwhile the second night will feature a rematch between former […]

Democrat Debate Post-Mortem: MSNBC’s Obvious Bias and the ‘Beautiful Lunatic’

  The 10 candidates onstage for Round 2 of the Democratic National Committee debates Thursday night spoke for a combined total of about 66 minutes. Four of those candidates (Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg) consumed 45:21 of that time. In other words, 40% of the candidates got almost 70% of the […]
