Cory Booker Drops, Out of 2020 Presidential Race

H/T Breitbart.

One more clown has left the 2020 DemocRat Clown Car.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) announced Monday that he is ending his struggling 2020 presidential campaign.

 

“It’s with a full heart that I share this news — I’ve made the decision to suspend my campaign for president,” Booker wrote to supporters in an email. “It was a difficult decision to make, but I got in this race to win, and I’ve always said I wouldn’t continue if there was no longer a path to victory.”

Warren Falls to Fourth Place in 2020 Money Race

Warren’s haul dips 14% in Q4, trails behind Sanders, Buttigieg, Biden

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) saw a significant dip in fundraising in the last quarter of 2019 with a $21.2 million haul, falling behind Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) and two other Democratic candidates.

Sanders routed Warren with a $34.5 million take, and South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg ($24.7 million) and former vice president Joe Biden ($22.7 million) also raised more money than Warren.

Warren was the only major Democratic presidential candidate whose fundraising dipped from the previous quarter. Her fundraising dropped nearly 14 percent from her third-quarter total of $24.6 million. Andrew Yang ($16.5 million) and Minnesota senator Amy Klobuchar ($11.4 million) trailed Warren’s fourth-quarter numbers but still had the best quarters of their campaigns.

The disappointing haul mirrored the Warren campaign’s stumbles heading into 2020. Since October, Warren has taken hits on both policy and personal fronts.

With her credibility already an issue after dubious claims of Native American heritage, Warren was on the defensive again when the Washington Free Beacon‘s reporting in October contradicted her claim she was fired from a teaching job in 1971 for being pregnant.

The Free Beacon also reported Warren’s son attended one of the nation’s most elite private schools, after Warren told a school-choice activist in November that her children had attended public schools. Warren has called for cutting federal funding for charter schools and banning for-profit charter schools

Warren’s long-awaited plan to enact single-payer health care led to criticism from Buttigieg and Biden for its$20.5 trillion price tag and removal of private health insurance options. When she amended her proposal to include a health care transition plan, she took criticism from the left.

Since then, Warren has phased out her discussion of Medicare for All on the campaign trail in spite of health care’s significance as an issue to Democratic voters. Her polling and fundraising have stalled with the Iowa caucuses just a month away.

 

 

Newly-Elected Democrats Let Their Masks Slip, Revealing the Fascists Beneath

H/T Town Hall.

Actually, their masks slipped when Donald Trump was elected President and revealed their fascist and gun-grabbing persona.

Since the 2018 elections, we have seen a lot of stupid people electing Democrats in state and local elections, and since the garbage Democrats have the garbage Midas touch – everything they come in contact with turns to a Scat Francisco sidewalk – these dumb voters are now suffering the consequences of their misguided trust in these aspiring authoritarians. Democrats win when rich donors pump money into races behind candidates who pretend not to be the gimps of the hard-left cabal that actually runs the party. And the radicals who got elected pretending to be not-insane are getting into office and doing all the insane stuff we warned the voters they would do.

There are no “moderate” Democrats. All Democrats are dangerous to your life, prosperity and freedom. They prefer churchgoers die rather than be able to defend themselves. They want newly-prosperous frackers to learn to code. They want you jailed for denying the climate cult or the fact that there are men and there are women and there is nothing else.

What’s the name of the Democrat who is willing to say, “I’m glad a half-dozen parishioners drew on that scumbag and capped his sorry butt. I’m thrilled millions of middle Americans are supporting their families through American energy independence. And I’m not going to say that men can menstruate or women can be fathers?” None. No significant Democrat will say any of these things, not even the inexplicably adored Tulsi Gabbard. They will say the opposite and, given the chance by stupid voters, will put each of their bizarre liberal catechisms into practice with the force of law.

Let’s look at the House. Over 30 Democrats got elected with the promise to be bipartisan and work together to solve problems and all that other mushy goo goo nonsense suckers lap up at election time. But the only “problem” they have worked to solve was that there was no Democrat in the White House. Except for a couple of courageous rebels, every one of those hacks who came into office promising the voters “No, I won’t be Nancy Pelosi’s gimp,” has totally been Nancy Pelosi’s gimp.

Gee, who saw this coming?

In Kentucky, despite a GOP sweep of every other office, enough blue grass voters thought they could take a chance on that nice, normal-seeming Democrat Andy Beshear. And the first thing he’s done is invite in a bunch of refugees. Was that what he was elected for? Did the people of Kentucky think “Hey, we don’t have enough foreigners coming into the state and living off our social services and taking jobs that could go to Americans?” No, but that’s what the Democrat Party wants. There’s a reason Gropey J’s wife was feeding future illegal aliens in Mexico instead of homeless vets on Democrat LA’s Skid Row – Democrats prefer foreigners to Americans.

That’s crazy talk, Kurt. You are crazy.

OK, then ask a Democrat candidate who is more important, Americans or foreigners who sneak in here. Go ahead. Once again, not a single significant Democrat will unequivocally say, “American citizens are more important than foreigners, especially criminals who break our laws to sneak in here.” Democrats (and sappy Ahoy-crew Fredocons like Jeb!, the “Act of Love” guy) support the foreigners, whose health care they want us to subsidize.

Remember, the Democrats will always side against you.

They excuse and coddle everyone but decent, hardworking citizens.

Normal Americans like you always have to deal with the consequences.

Let’s talk criminals. Democrats prefer them to you. Crazy? Are the Democrats always talking about how mean we are to crooks, or about the effect of crooks on your life? In California, idiot voters essentially decriminalized crime. Steal under $950 a day and you’re fine – they would even bother to file charges. Oh, and feel free to shoot up on the sidewalk and leave the needles around – remember, it’s the junkies who are the real victims. You, the normal people, have no recourse and no one has your back. You get to deal with bums, hobos and derelicts on your streets – just make sure that when you step around them you don’t topple over into a pile of human dung.

Normal Americans like you always have to deal with the consequences.

In cities across the country, it’s the same. Leftist-funded leftist district attorneys have decided that crimes are no longer crimes and refuse to prosecute criminals. You bear the burden – you are victimized, your stuff stolen, your family members assaults, raped or murdered. But this is not much different from the refusal to enforce immigration laws. Illegals kill scores of Americans, but Democrats will accept your family’s tragedy in order to import future voters.

Normal Americans like you always have to deal with the consequences.

In Virginia, the state is about to declare war on normal people for the crime of exercising their Second Amendment rights. Remember, this is the state where the Democrat governor (the old one, not the one who put on blackface) restored the voting rights of thousands of convicted criminals. Now Governor Jolson wants to make hundreds of thousands of Virginians, none of whom were committing a crime – and who, in most other states would not be committing a crime – into felons.

Tell me again how Democrats don’t hate you.

Now, most people did not vote to start a war on Virginia’s own citizens. And war it is – a Democrat suggested unleashing the National Guard on citizens who refuse to submit to serfdom. But the people will not comply – almost a hundred counties and cities have declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries. But the radical Democrats will not stop. They will push this to the wall. Honest citizens will get arrested. People may get killed. But that’s OK with the Democrats. They have to crush this outpouring of dissent. And they don’t care about the cost.

Normal Americans like you always have to deal with the consequences.

Oh, and the Democrats want to eliminate single-family zoning to ruin your neighborhoods in the interest of social engineering. Did anyone outside of the northern counties want that when they thought they would give the Dems a spin because Trump is so mean?

Democrats hate you, and everything they do will hurt you. Understand and accept that.

The good news, if there is any, is that the foolishness of trusting any Democrat has been revealed for what it is – utter foolishness. In Virginia, those urban Red Guards have roused the sleeping giant. People who never voted before will be voting now. They see that Democrats cannot be trusted with power. The GOP leadership, such as it is, is entirely too lame to make that case. But now the Democrats are making it for themselves.

How bad will this get? Hopefully not bad enough that my newest novel Collapse and the other entries in the series, People’s RepublicIndian Country and Wildfire, will get moved into the nonfiction section. They take place in the near future after America has split into two, red and blue, and the problem is that since I started writing them, they have been coming true. Sissy Never Trumps call them “appalling” because the books don’t compromise, submit, or suck – you know, like Never Trumpers do. Check them out!

Julián Castro Drops Out of Presidential Race

H/T Breitbart.

Julián Castro is out of the 2020 DemocRat Clown Car that leaves 14 or so clowns still in the clown car.               

Other than Castro’s mommy who gives a Damn that he dropped out of the clown car?

Longshot Democrat presidential candidate Julián Castro ended his flailing White House campaign on Thursday after struggling to achieve a breakthrough in the polls in a crowded Democrat primary field.

“Today, it’s with a heavy heart and profound gratitude that I will suspend my campaign for president,” Castro said in a video statement shared to Twitter, adding it “simply isn’t our time” to clinch the Democrat nomination. “I’m so proud of everything we’ve accomplished together. I’m going to keep fighting for an America where everyone counts—I hope you’ll join me in that fight,” he added.

Julián Castro

@JulianCastro

It’s with profound gratitude to all of our supporters that I suspend my campaign for president today.

I’m so proud of everything we’ve accomplished together. I’m going to keep fighting for an America where everyone counts—I hope you’ll join me in that fight.

19.8K people are talking about this

Castro, the sole Latino to mount a bid for the White House this cycle, was hampered for months by poor fundraising, and failed to qualify for the most recent Democrat presidential primary debate in Los Angeles, California. While he ran an overtly progressive campaign, championing far-left positions on issues such as immigration, his candidacy was often overshadowed by rivals like former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) and former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor, Pete Buttigieg (D).

Trying to show he could go to-to-toe with Trump, Castro swung for big moments on debate stages, and flirted with a much-needed breakout in June after confronting O’Rourke over not supporting decriminalization of illegal border crossings.

But turning his sights on Biden on a later stage brought swift backlash. During the September debate in Houston, Castro appeared to touch on concerns about the age of the then-76-year-old former vice president and added a parting shot at him.

“I’m fulfilling the legacy of Barack Obama, and you’re not,” Castro said.

Castro — who was Obama’s housing secretary in his second term — denied taking a personal dig at Biden as others in the field condemned the exchange. Three days later, Castro lost one of his three backers in Congress, Rep. Vicente González of Texas, who switched his endorsement to Biden.

Castro had warned supporters in a fundraising appeal that failing to make the November debate stage would spell the end of his campaign. He needed to hit at least 3% polling in four early state or national polls but didn’t get even one.

What is next for Castro is unclear. Back home in Texas, Democrats had long viewed Castro as their biggest star in waiting and some have urged him to run for governor as the state trends more diverse and liberal.

Hundreds of Biden’s Old Co-Workers Confirm, They’d Rather Vote for Someone Else

H/T Western Journal.

I think that unless he has a total mental breakdown I do not see Slow Joe The Gaff Machine Biden not being the 2020 DemocRat nominee.

Former Vice President Joe Biden seemingly has a good argument for Democratic voters ready to pick their party’s presidential nominee. His experience working in the White House is shared by only one other candidate in the entire 2020 race — President Donald Trump.

Unfortunately for Biden, hundreds of those who also worked under former President Barack Obama are making it clear that the former vice president isn’t their first choice for the office.

As of now, 231 people who worked in Obama’s 2008 campaign, his 2012 re-election campaign and his administration have voiced their support for Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s bid for the White House. The list of Obama alumni was acquired by CNN and is headed by the 2008 campaign’s field director, Jon Carson.

Carson was no low-level organizer, either. After Obama’s victory in 2008, the former campaign operative was given a spot in the new administration as the director of the Office of Public Engagement.

Needless to say, many of these 200-plus people likely crossed paths with Biden or worked with him in some capacity.

Their endorsement of the Massachusetts senator, someone who can’t even keep her own family history straight, over Biden is an embarrassing blow.

“We are a group that really uniquely knows that electability is self-determining and that oftentimes it’s the people with the boldest vision and the most unlikely candidacies early on who can really shift the field,” Sara El-Amine, an Obama alumna who helped Carson organize the group, told CNN

She said Warren “really has the zest and the grit and the gumption and the audacity that we loved that President Obama really embodied.”

Ouch.

Unfortunately for Biden, reports have surfaced that Obama is working with Warren behind closed doors to strengthen her campaign.

This shouldn’t come as a big shock to the former vice president, who has been unable to even secure an endorsement from his friend and former boss. Even after Biden hinted at throwing Obama a seat on the Supreme Court, an outright show of public support is still nowhere to be seen.

Of course, things could always get much worse for him.

Although Biden has held a steady lead in the polls since announcing his 2020 campaign, the tumultuous nature of this election means that anything can happen. His main opponents — Warren, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and rising threat Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana — are all seemingly poised to score a major upset over him.

Biden’s chances haven’t been helped by a steady stream of gaffes and embarrassments during his campaign.

Along with apparent health problems and his seemingly struggling mind, he also has had to deal with an ugly amount of family issues that pose a major problem as the election grows nearer.

The most important hangup for Biden remains: Despite his work in the White House, if those with whom he worked closest can’t even voice their support, what does that say of his work in our nation’s capital?

AOC Slams Buttigieg for Being ‘Funded by Billionaires’ but Accepted Funds from Billionaire Tom Steyer

H/T Breitbart.

With Alexandria Occasional-Cortex it is do as I say and not as I do.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) accepted a significant donation in August 2018 from billionaire and 2020 presidential candidate Tom Steyer.

Ocasio-Cortez criticized South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) during a rally for presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) Saturday in Los Angeles, California, for hosting a fundraiser with billionaires present, according to Fox Business.

She stated:

For anyone who accuses us of instituting purity tests, it’s called having values. It’s called giving a damn. It’s called having standards for your conduct, to not be funded by billionaires but to be funded by the people, which is different. Let me tell you something… I go to work all the time and I hear people say, “what will my donors think?; I hear that phrase. And I hear and I see that billionaires get members of Congress on speed dial and waitresses don’t, okay? There’s a difference.”

The long-time Democrat gave $2,700 to Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign on August 29, 2018, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics..

 

Steyer’s presidential campaign website stated that “Tom has worked directly with people to take on big corporations and win” and that he planned to “break the corporate stranglehold on our government, and enact the structural reforms we need to save our democracy.”

At the rally Saturday, Sanders also took a shot at Buttigieg for his “purity test” comments to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) during the Democrat debate last week.

Sanders continued:

We don’t go to rich people’s wine caves. This is a campaign of the working class of this country, by the working class, and for the working class. Our campaign has received more contributions from more people than any candidate in the history of the United States of America. We don’t have a super PAC. We don’t want a super PAC.

Sanders’ campaign raked in more than $1 million in donations during last Thursday’s debate, according to Breitbart News.

Elizabeth Warren’s Campaign Fundraising Plummets 30% in Fourth Quarter

H/T Breitbart.

Sounds like Princess Fauxchontis is the next clown out of the 2020 DemocRat Clown Car.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) presidential campaign emailed an urgent fundraising plea to supporters on Friday, conceding it experienced a 30 percent drop in contributions in the fourth quarter.

The campaign revealed to supporters it has raised $17 million in the fourth quarter, a sizeable drop from its $24.6 million haul in the third quarter, as first noted by CNBC.

So far this quarter, we’ve raised a little over $17 million. That’s a good chunk behind where we were at this time last quarter,” the memo reads.

The quarter concludes in four days (December 31st.)

The drop comes as Warren, once nearly tied with former Vice President Joe Biden for the Democrat primary frontrunner, has seen a steady decline in support, according to state and national polling averages.

The Massachusetts Democrat’s signature proposal, Medicare for All, has received a mixed reception since unveiling it last month. To pay for the eyewatering $20.5 trillion plan, she has floated a wealth tax of 2 percent of every dollar over $50 million of an individuals’ net worth, a rate which would climb to 6 percent for those worth over $1 billion. Earlier this month, Warren softened her chief health care proposal, labeling it as a “choice” and has begun reframing it as a transition plan, which would allow individuals to opt-in to a public option.

“We’re going to push through health care that’s available to everyone,” Warren recently told voters in Clinton, Iowa. “You don’t have to, but it’s your choice, if you want to come in and get full health care coverage.”

The development also comes as Warren ratchets up her attacks on the donor class. She’s accused former New York City Mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg of attempting to buy the primary and took aim at South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg during the last DNC debate for holding a high-dollar fundraiser in what she described as a “wine cave.”

Despite her refusal to accept donor money for her 2020 bid, the senator held a fundraiser at City Winery Boston in 2018, which included a souvenir wine bottle and “VIP experiences” for donors.

Warren’s hypocritical stance on donors caught the attention of Obama strategist David Axelrod, who called her attack on Buttigieg “an unforced error.”

‘This was the danger in the @ewarren “wine cave” attack on @PeteButtigieg. Her own past fundraising practices were pretty much in line with his, including even some of the same high dollar sponsors. She invited stories like this. Unforced error,” he tweeted last week.

Of course, Warren’s no strange to self-inflicted political harm. She infamously alleged having Native America heritage — an erroneous declaration she’s been accused of leveraging to advance her career — and has had to since apologize several times for doing so.
