Martin O’Malley says he’s not running in 2020, endorses Beto O'Rourke

Martin O’Malley says he’s not running in 2020, endorses Beto O'Rourke Democrat Martin O’Malley said he would not seek his party's nomination for the right to challenge President Trump. O'Malley sought the 2016 Democratic nomination, but dropped out of the race after his Iowa Caucuses support came in at less than 1 percent. Instead for 2020, O’Malley is backing outgoing Rep. Beto O’Rourke. The El Paso Democrat is considering a White House bid after waging a closer-than-expected, but still losing, 2018 race against Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. “People are looking for a new leader who can bring us together. They are looking for a unifier and a healer.

Americans love a fighter. Even the adversarial media has to admit that President Trump is a champion pugilist.

Since 2015, the old media oligarchy has been unsuccessfully trying to pin Donald Trump to the ground like Gulliver, but he contemptuously breaks every one of their slings and arrows. Their Lilliputian cords have failed to bind this political giant.

Warren: The Democratic Party is going to say 'no' to the billionaires

Warren: The Democratic Party is going to say 'no' to the billionaires Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said Wednesday that the Democratic Party should say "no to the billionaires." Warren, during an appearance on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show," called on the party to disavow billionaire 2020 presidential candidates "whether they are self-funding" or funding Political Action Committees (PACs). "Is this going to be a Democratic primary that is funded by the grassroots, that is done with grassroots vol unteers, or is this going to be something that's just one more plaything that billionaires can buy?" Warren asked.

The Democratic Party is generally associated with more progressive policies. It supports social and economic equality, favouring greater government intervention in the

“Donald Trump ran as an anti-establishment populist — against both the Democratic and Republican establishments,” he told me. This was in part because the party was more geographically distributed than the Democrats , who were increasingly concentrated in urban areas and interior suburbs.

When Trump says something, he means it. And does not back down.

Most contemporary presidents have backed down under pressure from the news media which has set itself up as kind of Inquisition -- the new unholy office of secular inquisition! In backing down political figures are then owned by Media, Inc.

President Trump is the voice of the American people. The press represents an elite who loathe the very word. They denigrate President Trump as a ‘populist,’ a word derived from the Latin word for “the people.’

With a growing economy, tax cuts, more jobs higher wages, better trade deals for the country, the appointment of conservative judges, peace negotiations with North Korea, a new Mideast policy and in advocating immigration reform, President Trump can honestly state he has covered the backs of the American people.

Networks give Dems 'equal airtime' to battle Trump

Networks give Dems 'equal airtime' to battle Trump Several major networks were planning to air the Democratic response to President Trump's primetime address on immigration Tuesday night.

The 2020 Democratic Party presidential primaries and caucuses will be a series of electoral contests organized by the Democratic Party to select the 4,051 delegates to the Democratic National

Part of the problem for parties is our insistence that they be run democratically . That turns out not to be a very realistic concept. McAdoo ran a deeply populist campaign aimed at maximizing his apparent democratic legitimacy. He ran in over a dozen primaries, a very rare approach at that time.

His feistiness is reminiscent of another outspoken president, Harry S. Truman.

Truman also ignored manufactured polls. During his 1948 campaign, which the press predicted Truman was supposed to lose, someone yelled out from the crowd he was addressing, “Give ‘em hell Harry!” which became a rallying cry. Trump's campaign slogan should be “Tell it like it is, Trump” as he continues to speak and tweet the truth to the American people.

The Democratic Party is running on fumes. They are not articulating any policies for the advancement of our country. Democrats have substituted ideology for policy and slogans as a means of stifling any intelligent discussion.

Their response to President Trump's address for a humanitarian wall to protect our borders was bereft of any substance and consisted of low demagoguery and personal attacks on the office of the president.

Having a party platform based on anti-Trump diatribes is a disservice to the American people and is not the way to successfully garner elective office.

Republican McConnell: Senate will not consider House Democratic bills to end shutdown

Republican McConnell: Senate will not consider House Democratic bills to end shutdown U.S. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said on Wednesday the Senate will not consider bills Democrats plan to vote on in the House on Thursday that would end the government shutdown but not include President Donald Trump's demand for $5 billion for a border wall. "The Senate will not waste its time considering a Democratic bill which cannot pass this chamber and which the president will not sign," McConnell said on the Senate floor.

On the surface, the Democratic Party has been united by its shared disgust for Donald Trump . Every party cast out of power endures a period of soul-searching. But the Democrats ’ dilemma was unimaginable even a year ago, when “ Running on progressive values,” strategist Adam Green told a candidates’ We need those businesspeople to hire our people, who just want a shot,” Ryan fumes .

The leaderless party is beset by structural disadvantages and policy defeats. The party was confident that its aging candidate, the spouse of another former Democratic There are many places where Trump and the leaders of the Republican Congress disagree, but they have all pushed for the

Polemics alone are inadequate. Parties must have something positive to say along with the criticism of the other party’s positions. Voters know that we have no real discussion on Trump’s policies, just hyperbole, hysteria, and obstruction.

Besides liking a fighter, the American people want fairness. And the mainstream media have overplayed their hand in false reporting. Anyone who disagrees with their imposed consensus is called a Nazi, a racist, a person of low intelligence or insane.

This is a strategic error. They are behind the times. For today, people have other sources of information online and the mainstream media's oligarchic corporate hegemony is on the wane.

Look for people to take their revenge against the bullying media and their Democratic cohorts at the polls by voting for GOP candidates in two years and tossing the Democrats from Congress.

Meanwhile, the continual attacks on the president bolster his popularity. Unlike the media, President Trump understands the old political adage that controversy builds political stature.
