Student Biden called 'lying dog-faced pony soldier' says she was humiliated

Student Biden called 'lying dog-faced pony soldier' says she was humiliated | 10 Feb 2020 | The college student branded a "lying dog-faced pony soldier” by Joe Biden said on Monday that being on the receiving end of a dig from the former vice president was "humiliating." Madison Moore, 21, told the Macon Telegraph that for people to wave off the bizarre jibe as a joke was "kind of insulting." "It was kind of humiliating to be called a liar on national TV by the former vice president," Moore told the newspaper. "Instead of answering that question straightforward, his immediate response was to attempt to invalidate me by exposing my inexperience."

US Troops Establish New Military Base in Syria to Cut Off Roads to Eastern Oil Fields - Report

US Troops Establish New Military Base in Syria to Cut Off Roads to Eastern Oil Fields - Report | 09 Feb 2020 | Following two announcements of military withdrawal from the country, US troops still remain in Syria. Last time, their prolonged stay was justified by President Donald Trump by the need to "keep the oil" and to guard it, to prevent the oil from falling into the hands of terrorist remnants. US forces stationed in Syria have started building a new military base in the oil-rich northeastern province of Al-Hasakah near the town of Tell Brak, Turkey's Anadolu news agency reported, citing anonymous sources. Its rapid construction reportedly started on 3 February with equipment and materials arriving from Iraq via the al-Waleed border crossing.

Gabbard calls on DNC chairman to step down after Iowa 'debacle' | 09 Feb 2020 | Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) called on Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tom Perez to step down following the chaotic Iowa caucus. Gabbard said in an email sent to supporters Sunday that the "trust" voters deserve under Perez's leadership "has been broken." "That's why today I'm asking that you join me in demanding that Tom Perez accept responsibility for this gross failure in leadership and resign now," Gabbard wrote, linking to a petition calling for the party chair's resignation. "Under the leadership of Tom Perez, the DNC has kowtowed to billionaires, caused a debacle in Iowa, and undermined the voter's trust in our elections," she added.

Marianne Williamson: Pete Buttigieg 'Nothing but a Corporate Tool'

Marianne Williamson: Pete Buttigieg 'Nothing but a Corporate Tool' | 09 Feb 2020 | Former 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson took a veiled shot at Mayor [CIA troll] Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, calling him "nothing but a corporate tool." After the Iowa Democrat Caucus, where Buttigieg walked away with the majority of delegates despite Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) winning the majority of voters, Williamson hinted that her supporters must not support Buttigieg, who routinely speaks about a "new era of inclusion" in politics... Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) previously called out Buttigieg for taking a lucrative job for McKinsey & Company, a billion-dollar consulting firm, between 2007 and 2010. In his role as a consultant for McKinsey, Buttigieg worked on behalf of insurance companies such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, the U.S. Defense Department, and Best Buy.

Five million people were able to flee Wuhan before it was put under quarantine and head to neighbouring Chinese provinces - taking the deadly coronavirus with them

Five million people were able to flee Wuhan before it was put under quarantine and head to neighbouring Chinese provinces - taking the deadly coronavirus with them --Wuhan was put under quarantine on January 23 - but millions had already fled --The mayor estimated 5 million left the city, taking the coronavirus with them | 09 Feb 2020 | Around five million people were able to flee Wuhan before the city was put under quarantine because of the coronavirus, taking the deadly infection with them to neighbouring areas. For weeks after the first reports of a mysterious new virus in Wuhan, millions of people poured out of the central Chinese city, cramming onto buses, trains and planes as the first wave of China's great Lunar New Year migration broke across the nation. Some carried with them the new virus that has since claimed over 800 lives and sickened more than 37,000 people. Officials finally began to seal the borders on January 23, but it was too late.

Democrats demand Twitter, Facebook take down edited video of Pelosi ripping up State of the Union speech posted by Trump

Democrats demand Twitter, Facebook take down edited video of Pelosi ripping up State of the Union speech posted by Trump | 08 Feb 2020 | Democrats are calling on Twitter and Facebook to take down an edited video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., ripping up the State of the Union address -- claiming it's designed to "mislead" people. On Thursday, Trump posted the video, made by Turning Points USA, which shows the "powerful American stories" that Trump highlighted in his State of the Union address interspersed with the moment immediately afterward when Pelosi tore up the speech. The video appears to be a continuation of the point made by Republicans that Pelosi, in ripping up the speech, was also ripping up the stories of those Americans that Trump highlighted in the address -- including stories of a Tuskegee airman, Americans killed in combat and a military family being reunited. But Democrats objected to the video because it implies that Pelosi ripped up the papers after each story was told - which she did not.

Two of the three people newly diagnosed are American, a health ministry official said, which brings the total number of Americans diagnosed from the cruise ship to 13. The third person is from China.

Trump ousts key impeachment figures Sondland, Vindman days after Senate acquittal

Trump ousts key impeachment figures Sondland, Vindman days after Senate acquittal | 07 Feb 2020 | U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, who testified about President Trump’s Ukraine dealings during the House impeachment hearings, said Friday he had been recalled from his overseas position, hours after a National Security Council aide who testified against the president was also fired. Sondland's recall follows the dismissal of another impeachment witness, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who was fired by the National Security Council and escorted off of the White House grounds on Friday. The moves come just two days after Trump was acquitted in the Senate on two articles of impeachment brought by the House last year over his dealings with Ukraine.

House Republicans move Jordan to Judiciary, Meadows to Oversight

House Republicans move Jordan to Judiciary, Meadows to Oversight | 06 Feb 2020 | Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) will soon become the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, after the House Republican Steering Committee voted unanimously Thursday to have him replace Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), multiple sources told The Hill. Separately, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) will take over Jordan's top GOP post on the House Oversight Committee. The move essentially installs two of President Trump's fiercest allies on top committees, giving the administration two strong supporters to combat Democrats' next investigations into the White House.

California bill could see hundreds of independents voting in Super Tuesday primary

California bill could see hundreds of independents voting in Super Tuesday primary | 06 Feb 2020 | A new bill working its way through the statehouse in Sacramento could allow hundreds of independent voters in the state to go to the ballot box in California's upcoming Democratic primary election on Super Tuesday, March 3. The bill, which was introduced by California state Sen. Melissa Hurtado, would permit voters to change their party affiliation or address within two weeks of Election Day without having to re-register to vote. The bill has already cleared the state Assembly, 60-12, and is up for consideration by the state Senate soon before it would be sent to Gov. Gavin Newsom for his signature, signing it into law.

Iowa precinct chairs mailed results to party officials after app, phone calls failed

Iowa precinct chairs mailed results to party officials after app, phone calls failed | 06 Feb 2020 | Iowa Democratic officials told party leaders on a private conference call Wednesday that they would be able to release caucus results from all but a few precincts by Thursday, according to a report. The holdup on the final few precincts, they say, was because those results were physically mailed in after caucus chairs were unable to reach the Iowa Democratic Party (IDP) any other way, the New York Times reports. On the call, IDP chairman Troy Price said that after the app they commissioned from [Soros-funded] Shadow Inc. experienced a [purposeful] botched rollout, the party asked precinct captains to move to Plan B, which was "to call us with their results." Once phone lines became overloaded, a number of precinct leaders gave up and went to bed without reporting their results, the Times reported. This led the IDP to move to Plan C, manually examining the worksheets from each caucus.

The latest suspected case comes as a twelfth American - a person in Wisconsin - was diagnosed with the deadly virus that's spread rapidly since appearing at a seafood market in Wuhan, China.

Dow hits record, joining S&P 500, Nasdaq --Trump took a victory lap after impeachment acquittal | 06 Feb 2020 | Stocks climbed to record highs Thursday following the Senate's acquittal of President Trump as well as China announcing plans to lower tariffs on U.S.-made goods and a strong read on U.S. productivity. All three of the major averages clocked gains as investors digested a slew of positive earnings results and strong productivity data and as Trump took a victory lap in the East Room of the White House after his impeachment acquittal by the Senate. "If we didn't win, the stock market would've crashed," he said. "The market was going up a lot before the election...and then it went up tremendously from the time we won to the time we took office."

Bernie Sanders says he won Iowa caucus over Pete Buttigieg --Sanders slams 'unprepared' Iowa Democratic Party | 06 Feb 2020 | U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders declared victory in the Iowa caucus based on the total supporters on Thursday -- "three days late" and due to a "screw up" by the Iowa Democratic Party, he said. In a streamed news conference from New Hampshire, the second state in the Democratic nominating process, Sanders noted the lead he holds over former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg in raw support... "I got 6,000 more votes," Sanders said at the news conference, referring to his margin of victory in the first count of caucusgoers. "Where I come from, when you get 6,000 more votes, that's generally considered a win."

Matt Gaetz to file ethics charges against Pelosi, force a vote in House

Matt Gaetz to file ethics charges against Pelosi, force a vote in House | 06 Feb 2020 | House Judiciary Committee member Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said Wednesday he will be filing ethics charges against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., over what he called her "temper tantrum" following President Trump's State of the Union address the previous evening. Gaetz told Laura Ingraham on "The Ingraham Angle" that he will join two other Republicans and file the charges with the House Ethics Committee on Thursday. Reps. Lee Zeldin of New York and Kay Granger of Texas will join him, he said... Gaetz said that he is one of many Republicans who are tired of political double standards on Capitol Hill. He pointed to Rep. Joe Wilson, a South Carolina Republican who was reprimanded in 2009 for yelling out "You lie!" when then-President Obama claimed illegal immigrants would not be covered by ObamaCare.

Republicans seek Hunter Biden travel records from Secret Service shortly after Trump acquittal

Republicans seek Hunter Biden travel records from Secret Service shortly after Trump acquittal | 05 Feb 2020 | Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis. announced in a letter Wednesday they are seeking "records of Hunter Biden's travel while he was under U.S. Secret Service protection as they continue to investigate potential conflicts of interest to boost his business ventures in Ukraine and China." The request to U.S. Secret Service Director James Murray was revealed just minutes after the Senate voted to acquit President Trump. It underscored the continuing importance of a matter at the heart of the impeachment proceedings -- whether Hunter Biden, who obtained a lucrative role on the board of a Ukrainian company with no relevant experience while his father oversaw Ukraine policy as vice president, deserved the scrutiny Trump suggested in his July 25 call with Ukraine's new president.

Nancy Pelosi should resign

Nancy Pelosi should resign By Jonathan Turley | 05 Feb 2020 | (Opinion) The House has its share of infamies, great and small, real and symbolic, and has been the scene of personal infamies from brawls to canings. But the conduct of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) at the State of the Union address this week will go down as a day of infamy for the chamber as an institution. It has long been a tradition for House Speakers to remain stoic and neutral in listening to the address. However, Pelosi seemed to be intent on mocking President Trump from behind his back with sophomoric facial grimaces and head shaking, culminating in her ripping up a copy of his address. Her drop the mic moment will have a lasting impact on the House... That act was more important to Pelosi than preserving the tradition of her office. In doing so, she forfeited the right to occupy that office.

Trump impeachment verdict: How the senators voted

Trump impeachment verdict: How the senators voted | 05 Feb 2020 | President Trump was acquitted on Wednesday by the Senate on the two articles of impeachment brought against him by the House. The impeachment vote on the Senate floor to find Trump not guilty on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress fell mostly along party lines with only one Republican lawmaker defecting and voting in favor of finding Trump guilty of abuse of power. Here is how each of the 100 U.S. senators voted on the articles of impeachment...

Trump Job Approval at Personal Best 49%

Trump Job Approval at Personal Best 49% --Half of registered voters say Trump deserves to be re-elected | 04 Feb 2020 | President Donald Trump's job approval rating has risen to 49%, his highest in Gallup polling since he took office in 2017...Trump's approval rating has risen because of higher ratings among both Republicans and independents. His 94% approval rating among Republicans is up six percentage points from early January and is three points higher than his previous best among his fellow partisans. The 42% approval rating among independents is up five points, and ties three other polls as his best among that group. Democratic approval is 7%, down slightly from 10%.

Utah's other Republican senator distances himself from Romney

Utah's other Republican senator distances himself from Romney | 05 Feb 2020 | Utah Sen. Mike Lee (R) distanced himself from home-state colleague Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) Wednesday evening, tweeting that “those who voted to remove” President Trump from office were "very wrong." ...Romney voted to remove Trump from office by supporting the first article, charging Trump with abuse of power. He and all other Senate Republicans voted to dismiss the second article, alleging obstruction of Congress. He was the only Republican to vote for conviction on either article. After the vote, Lee congratulated Trump for beating the push to remove him from office and the ballot in 2020.

Senate acquits Trump, ending impeachment saga

Senate acquits Trump, ending impeachment saga | 05 Feb 2020 | The Senate on Wednesday acquitted President Trump on two impeachment charges surrounding his dealings with Ukraine, ending the historic, months-long battle over the president’s fitness to remain in office and leaving his fate to the voters who will head to the polls just nine months from now. The outcome was never in doubt. With Congress and the country both bitterly divided over the provocative president, lawmakers in the GOP-controlled Senate voted virtually along party lines -- 48-52 and 47-53 -- to sink the two articles, which both fell far short of the 67 votes Democrats needed to convict Trump and remove him from office... Trump's GOP allies have been energized by the process, driving the president's approval rating to 49 percent this week -- the highest since he took office, according to Gallup's surveys.

Illinois suspects enter Walmart with 'Caution I have the Coronavirus' sign and spray substance on $7K worth of produce

Illinois suspects enter Walmart with 'Caution I have the Coronavirus' sign and spray substance on $7K worth of produce | 05 Feb 2020 | Police in Illinois are looking for two men who caused nearly $10,000 in damage after they entered a Walmart with a "Caution I have the Coronavirus" sign and started spraying a mystery substance.

One of the two men is seen on surveillance video spraying the substance on produce, clothing, and health and beauty products, according to a press release. The individual who sprayed the fluid, later identified as Lysol, wore a yellow medical mask and had a handmade sign on his back that read "Caution I have the Coronavirus."

Buttigieg campaign paid firm that developed voting app blamed for Iowa caucus delays

Buttigieg campaign paid firm that developed voting app blamed for Iowa caucus delays | 04 Feb 2020 | Presidential candidate [CIA troll] Pete Buttigieg's campaign contributed money to the technological firm whose voting app contributed to reporting delays in the Iowa caucuses. Federal Election Commission filings reveal that Buttigieg's campaign gave tens of thousands of dollars to Shadow on July 23, 2019, for "software rights and subscriptions." Shadow, a technology company that has an investor in the Democratic digital nonprofit organization ACRONYM, was also paid $60,000 over two installments by the Iowa Democratic Party to build an app to help make caucus voting easier and faster for precinct volunteers. Filings also reveal that the Nevada Democratic Party paid Shadow $58,000 for "website development."

Senate votes to acquit Trump on abuse of power charge

Breaking: Senate votes to acquit Trump on abuse of power charge | 05 Feb 2020 | The Senate on Wednesday voted to acquit President Trump on the first impeachment charge of abuse of power in his dealings with Ukraine, marking the beginning of the end of the months-long saga. Senators voted 48-52 on the first House-passed article of impeachment, falling well short of the two-thirds requirement for convicting and removing him office. But in a blow to Trump, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's efforts to keep Republicans unified, Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah) announced less than two hours before the vote that he would vote to convict Trump on the abuse of power charge, while acquitting him on the second article involving obstruction of Congress. Refuting months of GOP predictions, no Democratic senators voted to acquit Trump.
