Gabbard says she's received no reason from CNN for lack of invitation to town halls

Gabbard says she's received no reason from CNN for lack of invitation to town halls | 29 Jan 2020 | Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) says she's received no explanation or response from CNN regarding not being invited to a series of town halls the network is hosting in New Hampshire days before a crucial primary there in February. Gabbard is currently polling at 4.8 percent in the RealClearPolitics index of polls in New Hampshire, ahead of tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang, businessman Tom Steyer and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick. Yang, Steyer and Patrick, along with former Vice President Joe Biden, former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) all received invites to participate in the two-night event.

CNN's blatant and bizarre Tulsi Gabbard snub

CNN's blatant and bizarre Tulsi Gabbard snub | 31 Jan 2020 | ...CNN's decision to snub Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) from a series of town halls just days before the New Hampshire primary is not only odd but optically nonsensical. Note: Gabbard is currently polling at 4.8 percent in the RealClearPolitics index of polls in New Hampshire. That puts her ahead of tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang (4.0 percent), businessman Tom Steyer (1.8 percent) and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (no polling available). So what do these low-polling candidates all have in common? They all received invites to the CNN New Hampshire town hall. The most recent poll from American Research Group released out of the state even has Gabbard ahead of Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), with the Hawaii congresswoman clocking in at 8 percent to Klobuchar's 7.

House Majority Whip: DNC shouldn't change rules for Bloomberg

House Majority Whip: DNC shouldn't change rules for Bloomberg | 01 Feb 2020 | House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) said the Democratic National Committee (DNC) shouldn't change its rules so that former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg can participate in upcoming debates. "I have nothing against Bloomberg, I like Bloomberg...we've had a relationship a long time...but I do not feel that we ought to be messing around with the rules," Clyburn told Hill.TV. "You lay out the rules, the rules are there for everybody. They were there for him from the get-go," the South Carolina congressman added. On Friday, the DNC changed its debate requirements, axing its fundraising threshold, which gives Bloomberg a chance to make this month's debate in Las Vegas.

Beside the British parliament, flag-waving Brexit supporters cheered, reveling in a mix of nostalgia, patriotism and defiance. Some sang "God Save the Queen", while others hugged amid the smoke of fireworks.

A large flat-bed truck carrying construction supplies has affectionately been termed: "Brother Red Bull". Some of the diggers are given affectionate names based on their colour, such as "Little Yellow" and "Little Blue".

Revealed: The identity of American neo-Nazi terror group 'The Base' points to a CIA field agent who doubles as a K Street contractor, lobbyist

Revealed: The identity of American neo-Nazi terror group 'The Base' points to a CIA field agent and K Street contractor, lobbyist --The Base – which is an approximate English translation of 'al-Qaida' [al-CIAduh] - began recruiting in late 2018. | 23 Jan 2020 | The Guardian has learned the true identity of the leader and founder of the US-based neo-Nazi terror network the Base, which was recently the target of raids by the FBI after an investigation into domestic terrorism uncovered their plans to start a race war. Members of the group stand accused of federal hate crimes, murder plots and firearms offenses, and have harbored international fugitives in recent months. The Base's leader previously operated under the aliases "Norman Spear" and "Roman Wolf"... But the Guardian can reveal that "Norman Spear" is in fact US-born Rinaldo Nazzaro, 46, who has a long history of advertising his services as an intelligence, military and security contractor. He has claimed, under his alias, to have served in Russia and Afghanistan... Speculation that Nazzaro was a federal agent: In an archive of those videos on the site Bitchute, which hosts a large amount of far-right content, he is identified as "Defense Studies expert and former CIA field intelligence officer Norman Spear". This detail, coupled with other leads, compelled many to speculate whether "Norman Spear" was, in fact, a federal agent operating inside the Base.

Democrats make closing arguments to Iowa voters

Democrats make closing arguments to Iowa voters | 30 Jan 2020 | In person, two leading Democratic presidential candidates are increasingly drawing contrasts with their chief rivals as they make their final pitches to Iowa voters ahead of Monday's caucuses. But on the airwaves, it's all about President Trump. Former Vice President Joe Biden took aim on Thursday at Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who has led several recent polls, for Sanders's past votes against gun control measures like the Brady Bill, and over the fact that Sanders is not a member of the Democratic Party. Hours earlier, former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg challenged Biden's claim that he is the most electable candidate in the field.

Pelosi says Trump lawyers have 'disgraced' themselves, suggests disbarment

Pelosi says Trump lawyers have 'disgraced' themselves, suggests disbarment | 30 Jan 2020 | Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday hammered the lawyers leading President Trump's impeachment defense, saying they've trampled on the Constitution while questioning how they've been allowed to keep their licenses. "I don't know how they can retain their lawyer status, in the comments that they're making," Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. Pelosi was responding largely to comments made Wednesday evening by Alan Dershowitz..."The articles of impeachment violate the Constitution," Trump's leading lawyers, Jay Sekulow and Pat Cipollone, said at the outset of the Senate trial. "They are defective in their entirety."

Deep State protects its own: John Roberts refuses to read question from Rand Paul on 'whistleblower'

Deep State protects its own: John Roberts refuses to read question from Rand Paul on 'whistleblower' | 30 Jan 2020 | Supreme Court Chief Justice [Bush-appointed Deep-State troll] John Roberts refused to read a question submitted by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) during Thursday's question-and-answer session in President Trump's impeachment trial. Paul and Roberts have been battling over the question, which was expected to be about the 'whistleblower' at the center of the impeachment inquiry. Because the question is thought to name the whistleblower and Roberts is responsible for reading the questions aloud, that would put him in the position of publicly outing the person on the floor of the Senate. A Senate page brought the question from Paul to Roberts, who appeared to pause to read it. "The presiding officer declines to read the question as submitted," Roberts said. Roberts then sat the slip of paper with Paul's query aside and the Senate moved on to the next question.

Collins to vote to allow witnesses in Trump impeachment trial

Collins to vote to allow witnesses in Trump impeachment trial | 30 Jan 2020 | Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said Thursday night that she will vote to allow new witnesses and documents as part of President Trump's impeachment trial in the Senate. Collins is the first Republican senator to formally say she will vote yes on a blanket up-or-down vote, scheduled for Friday, that would open the door to hearing from new witnesses as part of the Senate proceeding. "I believe hearing from certain witnesses would give each side the opportunity to more fully and fairly make their case, resolve any ambiguities, and provide additional clarity. Therefore, I will vote in support of the motion to allow witnesses and documents to be subpoenaed," Collins said in a statement. The rules resolution that passed last week for the trial allows for a vote on whether or not it would request new witnesses or documents.

Key swing-vote GOP Sen. Alexander comes out against witnesses, paving way for imminent Trump acquittal

Key swing-vote GOP Sen. Alexander comes out against witnesses, paving way for imminent Trump acquittal | 31 Jan 2020 | Tennessee Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander announced late Thursday night that he would not support additional witnesses in President Trump's "shallow, hurried and wholly partisan" impeachment trial, seemingly ending Democrats' hopes of hearing testimony from former National Security Advisor John Bolton and paving the way for the president's imminent acquittal as soon as Friday night. "If this shallow, hurried and wholly partisan impeachment were to succeed, it would rip the country apart, pouring gasoline on the fire of cultural divisions that already exist," Alexander said. "It would create the weapon of perpetual impeachment to be used against future presidents whenever the House of Representatives is of a different political party." ...Republicans have a 53-47 majority in the chamber, and can afford up to three defections when the Senate considers whether to call additional witnesses on Friday -- a question that is considered by a simple majority vote.

Chief Justice John Roberts blocks Republican Rand Paul from naming the 'whistleblower' as Adam Schiff refuses to say if CIA staffer worked for Joe Biden

Chief Justice John Roberts blocks Republican Rand Paul from naming the 'whistleblower' as Adam Schiff refuses to say if CIA staffer worked for Joe Biden --Adam Schiff clashed with Republicans in the Senate impeachment trial when he refused to say whether the whistle-blower ever worked with Joe Biden | 29 Jan 2020 | John Roberts, the Supreme Court Chief Justice presiding over the Senate impeachment hearing, has banned lawmakers from using the name they believe is the anonymous 'whistle-blower.' The Justice read aloud Wednesday all the inquiries the senators had for the prosecution and defense during more than eight hours of questioning on the eight day of the trial -- and he told senators he would not read questions that included the alleged Ukraine whistle-blower's name. He also wouldn’t read questions that he felt might out the intelligence official. The directive blocked Senator Rand Paul's question. Several Republicans familiar with the dynamics told Politico that Paul, who strongly opposes impeachment, drafted a question that would have violated that instruction from the Chief Justice.
