Democrats introduce measure to block Trump’s emergency declaration

Today 06:59 GMT

House Democrats on Friday introduced a resolution to block the national emergency declaration that U.S. President Donald Trump issued to fund his long-sought wall along the U.S-Mexico border.

The measure to block Trump’s edict will be closely watched in the Senate, where moderates such as Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., have signalled they would back it. Should the House and the Senate initially approve the measure, Congress seems unlikely to muster the two-thirds majorities in each chamber that would be needed later to override a certain Trump veto.

Tucker Carlson: 'Woke' billionaires love socialism because it doesn't cost them much

Today 05:09 GMT

Sit back and watch as the Democratic presidential candidates simultaneously jockey to establish the most left-wing possible credentials and at the very same time, feverishly suck up to the super-rich to fund their campaigns.

This group makes far more of their money on capital gains, which are taxed at only half the rate of your salary, and some of it is not even taxed at all. Under the 2017 tax law, investments in federally-designated opportunity zones evade capital gains taxes entirely.

Anti-Trump Democrat Adam Schiff claims GOP lawmakers privately express 'deep fears' about president

Today 06:59 GMT

Republicans on Capitol Hill might not be as united behind President Trump as they appear in the media, if anti-Trump Democrat Adam Schiff is to be believed.

"For Adam Schiff to think that Republicans on Capitol Hill are going to be allies with him after everything that he's done and plans to do, I think that he's hoping for a little too much," Pavlich said on Friday's edition of Fox News' "Outnumbered."

Medicare for All isn’t ‘radical,’ it’s popular

Today 04:14 GMT

If you’re in the majority on something—green energy, Medicare for All, universal background checks—don’t dismiss the minority that disagrees with you as “nuts” or “crazies.”

Perhaps having Medicare for All is a mainstream idea, but if it means taking away the option of having private health insurance, it’s radical. The absence of clarity makes it hard for anyone to truly determine whether single payer is best for them, or plodding along with what we have now—a labyrinthine, screwed-up, expensive system—somehow is.

Thursday 21:50 GMT

Since it can be difficult to keep up with the Democrats’ race to out-crazy one another, here’s a quick recap of the far-left policies that mainstream Democrats are hoping to foist on the American people:.

The attorney for a woman who has accused Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of raping her while they were undergraduates at Duke University nearly two decades ago is accusing state Democrats of “pure cowardice” for signaling they won’t proceed with public hearings on the allegations against him. “Apparently, the Virginia House Democratic Caucus believes that courageous victims of rape need to be heard — just not by them,” said Nancy Erika Smith, an attorney for accuser Meredith Watson.

Tucker Carlson: Kirsten Gillibrand is a victim now

Friday 12:41 GMT

If you want to know what they're thinking in the faculty lounge at Wesleyan, or out in Silicon Valley or in Hollywood, watch Kirsten Gillibrand.

She announced her new status as a victim just last week in a fundraising pitch: "I'm already facing questions about my likability and tone," Gillibrand wrote. "Sexism is bubbling into the narrative around our campaign, but I certainly won't stop fighting for a country that values and respects women.

New York officials face backlash over 'congestion' tax push

Thursday 16:20 GMT

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio supports the legislation but is calling for hardship exemptions for those traveling to Manhattan for medical care – as well as upstate farmers who sell produce in Manhattan.

Leading opponent Richard Brodsky, a former Democratic assemblyman, told The New York Times last year, “This has always been a policy nostrum of the elites, sort of a big lab test in which the lab rats — the regular people — wanted no part of it.” A spokesman for New York state Democratic Sen. Liz Kruger, who represents Manhattan’s east side and supports the plan, told Fox News the senator remains optimistic and “the devil is in the details.” Kruger thinks there is “a model that can be found that is equitable to all New Yorkers,” the spokesman said.

Wednesday 14:31 GMT

Schultz, who said last month he was considering running for president, suggested Tuesday in a post on Medium that Democrats could sabotage their own chances of ousting President Trump from the White House in 2020 by nominating a candidate too far to the left.

Why an erstwhile neoliberal is feeling the Bern

Thursday 08:59 GMT

I spent most of the 1990s as a neoliberal, the first few years of the 2000s as a conservative, and then every year since 2004 as a Democratic-leaning centrist once again.

For now, Sanders is the best option on offer for someone looking to bury Trump's brand of right-wing populism for good.
