Bloomberg drops out after terrible Super Tuesday, endorses Biden

Bloomberg drops out after terrible Super Tuesday, endorses Biden | 04 March 2020 | Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg dropped out of the 2020 race on Wednesday after a disappointing performance on Super Tuesday despite spending hundreds of millions of dollars in advertisements... He endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden, saying it was clear from the Super Tuesday results that Biden was the best candidate to defeat Trump in November. Fourteen states and one U.S. territory -- American Samoa -- cast ballots on Super Tuesday. Bloomberg's only outright victory was in American Samoa, which does not have any votes in the Electoral College. Bloomberg's endorsement of Biden comes on the heels of similar support from two other former White House hopefuls: Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Pence promises coronavirus testing will be covered by private insurance, Medicare/Medicaid

Pence promises coronavirus testing will be covered by private insurance, Medicare/Medicaid | 04 March 2020 | Vice President Mike Pence tried to assuage Americans' concerns over the potential cost they could face getting a coronavirus test should they become affected by the outbreak, saying that the test will be covered by all private insurance plans and by Medicare and Medicaid. Speaking a day before he departs for Washington -- the state hardest hit by the coronavirus outbreak -- Pence said that because the Department of Health and Human Services has designated the coronavirus test as an "essential health benefit," Americans with health insurance will not have to worry about paying out of pocket to be tested for coronavirus. "With regard to cost, HHS has designated the test as an essential health benefit," Pence said. "It will be covered by private insurance and Medicare/Medicaid."

Chief Justice Roberts issues rare rebuke to Schumer's 'dangerous' and 'irresponsible' comments on Kavanaugh, Gorsuch | 04 March 2020 | Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts on Wednesday issued a highly unusual and forceful rebuke to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., calling his seemingly threatening remarks directed at Associated Justices Neal Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh "irresponsible" and dangerous." "This morning, Senator Schumer spoke at a rally in front of the Supreme Court while a case was being argued inside," Roberts said in an extraordinary written statement, obtained by Fox News. "Senator Schumer referred to two Members of the Court by name and said he wanted to tell them that 'You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You will not know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.'" Roberts continued: "Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous. All Members of the Court will continue to do their job, without fear or favor, from whatever quarter."

In the opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito, the high court found that Kansas did not unlawfully encroach on federal authority over immigration policy.

Sanders draws contrasts with Biden in Super Tuesday speech

Sanders draws contrasts with Biden in Super Tuesday speech | 03 March 2020 | Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) used his Super Tuesday speech in Vermont to draw sharp contrasts with former Vice President Joe Biden after the moderate candidate won a litany of Southern state primaries. Sanders, a progressive firebrand, said Biden's centrism and vows to return the country to the politics of the Obama administration would be insufficient to defeat President Trump in November... Sanders swiped at Biden over a litany of past votes and comments, including his support of the Iraq War while he was in the Senate and remarks about cutting Social Security and other programs. "We're going to beat Trump because this will become a contrast in ideas. One of us in this race led the opposition to the war in Iraq. You're looking at him. Another candidate voted for the war in Iraq. One of us has spent his entire life fighting against cuts in Social Security and wanting to expand Social Security. Another candidate has been on the floor of the Senate calling for cuts to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and veterans' programs," Sanders said, provoking boos regarding Biden's record. Sanders went on to slam Biden's vote to approve the North American Free Trade Agreement, a trade deal that progressives have long railed against over what they say were insufficient protections for U.S. workers. The deal has been replaced by the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

Trump campaign sues New York Times for libel over op-ed that knowingly included 'false information' | 26 Feb 2020 | President Trump's reelection campaign is suing The New York Times for libel, claiming that the newspaper knowingly published false information about the president in an op-ed last year.

Trump campaign sues Washington Post for libel

Trump campaign sues Washington Post for libel | 03 March 2020 | President Trump's campaign has filed a multimillion-dollar libel lawsuit against The Washington Post, claiming the newspaper knowingly published false claims that Trump engaged in a conspiracy with Russia concerning U.S. presidential elections. The lawsuit, filed Monday in a Washington, D.C., federal court, comes a week after the Trump campaign filed a similar suit against The New York Times. The lawsuit cites two Washington Post opinion pieces from June 2019, one which said that then-special counsel Robert Mueller concluded that the Trump campaign "tried to conspire with" a "sweeping and systematic" attack by Russia in the 2016 election. A second article stated "who knows what sort of aid Russia and North Korea will give to the Trump campaign, now that he has invited them to offer their assistance?"

Simple Proof: Google Manipulated South Carolina Primary for Joe Biden

Simple Proof: Google Manipulated South Carolina Primary for Joe Biden By Jim Fetzer, Ph.D. | 01 March 2020 | ...Joe Biden appears to be severely cognitively impaired from a pair of brain aneurysms he suffered, which he acknowledged during a campaign event in New Castle, NH, last year after his eye filled with blood. Even the late endorsement of Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC), the most influential black political leader in South Carolina, a few days before the primary cannot possibly account for his stunning 30-point victory over Bernie Sanders. Something else had to be involved here, what is commonly referred to in social science research as an intervening variable...Consider the two hypotheses: (h1) this was a normal election with no outside interference by a hidden variable (in this case, Google); versus (h2) this was another instance (like 2016 and 2018) where Google manipulated the outcome behind the scene. The more likely hypothesis is the one that confers the higher probability upon the available evidence, in this case, including Biden's dismal performance in Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada and downward trajectory in South Carolina. Since Clyburn's endorsement was expected, the probability of (h1) on the evidence is very low, but on (h2), it is very high. Evaluating the alternative on the basis of the available evidence-which should include Biden's gaffs, which suggest that he is seriously cognitively impaired and would be a disaster on the campaign trail, should the Democrats actually nominate him-supports the conclusion that Google manipulated the outcome to favor Biden. This should come as no surprise, since Google executives have declared that they are going to do everything they can do to defeat Trump in 2020.

O'Rourke endorses Biden at Dallas rally on eve of Super Tuesday, as ex-VP appears to offer gun-control role

O'Rourke endorses Biden at Dallas rally on eve of Super Tuesday, as ex-VP appears to offer gun-control role | 03 March 2020 | In a surprise moment at the end of his Dallas rally on the eve of Super Tuesday, former Vice President Joe Biden called former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke up to the stage -- and vowed to put O'Rourke, who has said the government should forcibly seize assault rifles from Americans, in charge of gun-control efforts... Biden, taking the microphone after O'Rourke spoke, then announced, "I want to make something clear -- I'm gonna guarantee you, this is not the last you're seeing of this guy -- you're gonna take care of the gun problem with me, you're gonna be the one who leads this effort."

Chris Matthews retires from MSNBC after string of recent controversies

Chris Matthews retires from MSNBC after string of recent controversies | 02 March 2020 | Chris Matthews, one of the country's best-known political talk show hosts, is retiring from MSNBC, effective immediately, after a string of recent controversies on and off the air. Matthews made the announcement on Monday night's "Hardball," the cable news show he has hosted for more than 20 years. Monday was his final broadcast... Matthews has been in the news for all the wrong reasons lately -- for likening the Bernie Sanders campaign to the Nazis, for misidentifying an African American politician, and for allegedly making sexist comments to GQ columnist Laura Bassett. When Sanders took an early lead in the Nevada caucuses last month, Matthews likened the moment to Nazi Germany invading France during World War II. Aides to Sanders, who is Jewish, expressed shock at the analogy.

Federal judge orders Hillary Clinton deposition to address private emails: 'Still more to learn'

Federal judge orders Hillary Clinton deposition to address private emails: 'Still more to learn' | 02 March 2020 | A federal judge Monday granted a request from conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch to have former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sit for a sworn deposition to answer questions about her use of a private email server to conduct government business. Clinton has argued that she has already answered questions about this and should not have to do so again -- the matter did not result in any charges for the then-presidential candidate in 2016 after a high-profile investigation -- but D.C. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth said in his ruling that her past responses left much to be desired... Lamberth also granted Judicial Watch's request to depose former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills, IT specialist Paul Combetta who was involved in deleting Clinton's emails, as well as Brett Gittleson and Yvette Jacks, who were State Department officials familiar with Clinton's private email server.
