Yeah I don’t get that he could support M4A while running in a general election in Texas, but not while running in a national Dem primary, in which the voters are going to be much more pro M4A. He must have bad advisors.

Oh, so now he’ll support it. Sorry, Beto. We remember that you didn’t support it when you were in the House.

LieparDestin

This was during his Senate run. He has now backtracked on it if you read into his most recent statements.

Another flip-flopper. You’re probably too young to remember the flip flop ad against gephardt. https://vimeo.com/54781317 (I swear there’s another one, but this is what I could find. How quaint campaign ads used to be.)

Two 2020 candidates — Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders — are loathed by Wall Street mega-donors. They seem to adore O’Rourke.

“He’s game changing,” Robert Wolf, an investment banker who raked in Wall Street money for Obama in 2008 and 2012, told Politico back in November about a potential Beto run. “If he decides to run, he will be in the top five. You can’t deny the electricity and excitement around the guy.”

And for good reason. O’Rourke’s voting record indicates a reluctance to attack big banks in a way that the furthest-left 2020 candidates have. In 2018, for example, he voted to weaken a key rule of the Dodd-Frank.

O’Rourke has one of the more conservative voting records of any recent Democratic member of the House. He voted in line with Trump 30 percent of the time, according to FiveThirtyEight, compared to 17 percent for the average Democrat. In all three terms he served in Congress, O’Rourke was more conservative than at least 76 percent of House Democrats.

Despite positioning himself as a progressive when it comes to immigration and climate change, O’Rourke has supported GOP bills that bolstered the fossil-fuel industry and watered down hiring requirements for border patrol agents.

First of all, he and Tulsi don’t have the experience to maneuver the shark pit of power. I won’t vote for either based on that fact. A state governor like Inslee or Carter had to learn POTUS at the state level. Tulsi and Beto haven’t.

I like the #savebetosdog.

Still cannot find a livestream link, odd. Hoping at least one of the local stations will put something up.

LieparDestin

Will be a shame if we cannot catch this event. One of my complaints of the last campaign was that everything wasnt streamed on multiple platforms.

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, a potential independent presidential candidate, apologized Thursday for claiming that he had “probably” spent more time with the military than any other 2020 candidate over the last decade.

The remark earned a swift rebuke from Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg; the South Bend, Indiana, mayor is a veteran and was deployed in 2014.

Buttigieg isn’t the only 2020 presidential candidate with a significant military background. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, who is also running, joined the Hawaii National Guard in 2002 and volunteered to deploy in 2004, serving two tours of duty, including in Iraq.

The Sanders Institute, a think tank founded by the Democratic presidential contender’s wife and stepson, is shutting down, at least for now, hoping to quash criticism that the nonprofit has blurred the lines between family, fundraising and campaigning.

The Vermont-based institute has stopped accepting donations and plans to suspend all operations by the end of May “so there could not even be an appearance of impropriety,” Jane Sanders told The Associated Press.

The unexpected move by the institute’s board of directors comes as Sanders, a leading candidate for the Democratic nomination, prepares for a wave of intense scrutiny into his political network and his family’s role in its operation.

“We didn’t think about the Clinton or the Trump foundation,” she said. “We just thought, I’m going to be very active” in the campaign, and “it’s just too mushy — it could become too mushy. We wanted to safeguard it. It’s a suspension, not a shutdown.”

The institute’s mission was to “revitalize democracy by actively engaging individuals, organizations and the media in the pursuit of progressive solutions to economic, environmental, racial and social justice issues,” according to its website. Besides a three-day gathering of progressive activists last year, it gave funding to fellows and produced policy videos.

Ms. Sanders emphasized that the suspension was only temporary.

“The work will definitely come back,” she said.

President Trump got walloped for the second time in 24 hours by the Senate. In a stunning repudiation of the president, 12 Republican senators crossed party lines to vote with Democrats to end Trump’s fraudulent declaration of a national emergency along the U.S.-Mexico border. The final vote was 59 to 41, with GOP Sens. Mitt Romney (Utah), Susan Collins (Maine), Patrick J. Toomey (Pa.), Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), Roy Blunt (Mo.), Roger Wicker (Miss.), Mike Lee (Utah), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Jerry Moran (Kan.), Rob Portman (Ohio), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Rand Paul (Ky.) voting to end the president’s declaration — which seeks to confiscate Congress’s power of the purse.

Laughably, Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), who had declared his opposition to Trump’s declaration in an op-ed for The Post, flip-flopped and voted with Trump, a singular moment of breathtaking cowardice. Also joining Trump were Republican Sens. Joni Ernst (Iowa) and Cory Gardner (Colo.) Tillis, Ernst and Gardner are all up for reelection in 2020, and their voters should understand that these senators voted to give their jobs away, to emasculate the Senate. As such, they serve no purpose and do not fulfill their oaths of office to represent their states. There is no reason to return them to the Senate.

Also voting with Trump were constitutional conservative hypocrites — Sens. Ted Cruz and John Cornyn of Texas, Ben Sasse (Neb.) and Charles E. Grassley (Iowa) to name a few. They have no standing to lecture any of us on the rule of law, the Constitution or the separation of powers. They cringe in Trump’s presence, afraid apparently to stand for anything other than their own reelection. As such, they pronounce their own uselessness.

I like that they keep panning the large crowd.

I’ll bet that some in the crowd are hearing a speech like for the first time. I hope it sinks in.

Should she decide to run again, Tulsi is going to have stiffer competition than in the past

https://www.staradvertiser.com/2019/03/14/breaking-news/ben-cayetano-supporting-state-sen-kai-kaheles-bid-for-tulsi-gabbards-seat/

Former Gov. Ben Cayetano has thrown his support behind state Sen. Kai Kahele’s bid to win the congressional seat held by Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, joining former Govs. Neil Abercrombie and John Waihee who said last month that they were supporting Kahele.

The three former governors will also serve as honorary co-chairs of the Kahele for Congress campaign committee, according to a press release issued by Kahele’s campaign today.

Kahele, who has represented Hilo in the state Senate since 2016, is holding a fundraiser tonight for his congressional campaign at the Pacific Club in Honolulu and has another one planned for March 28 in Hilo.

Gabbard, who announced in January that she is running for president, hasn’t indicated whether she plans to run for re-election next year. However, she can simultaneously run in both the presidential and congressional primaries, according to Hawaii’s Office of Elections.

He had a full house tonight in SC. Glad to see it. I recall 4 years ago working the campaign and recalling the news out of SC. $hrill already had it sewn up. The corruption was that deep and set.

A report from a Charleston newspaper.

https://www.postandcourier.com/politics/bernie-sanders-shares-vision-for-justice-during-first-sc-visit/article_fd96fc8e-4429-11e9-a583-a36c3222b7a2.html

Almost 12 hours after the field of Democratic presidential candidates swelled yet again, Bernie Sanders arrived in North Charleston on Thursday night determined to be heard.

At a political rally that more closely resembled a church revival with call-and-response moments — both planned and impromptu — the senator from Vermont outlined his definition of justice.

“Brothers and sisters,” Sanders began. “Welcome to the political revolution.”

In his first visit to South Carolina since officially launching his 2020 presidential campaign, Sanders attracted a crowd of more than 1,600 people inside the gymnasium at Royal Missionary Baptist Church, the very space where California Sen. Kamala Harris, who is also running for president, addressed more than 1,000 people last month.
