Desperate Dems Will ‘Strongly Unite’ Behind Socialist Sanders, Claim Schumer, Pelosi

Socialism is no longer relegated to the fringe of the Democratic Party, even according to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. The tag-team responsible for the failed impeachment inquiry announced the party would “strongly unite” behind a socialist candidate in a joint press conference. A reporter asked the pair: “Are you comfortable with a so-called Democratic socialist, as he calls himself, on the top of your ticket?” Schumer responds: “Primaries are primaries, and there are always lots of ‘Sturm und Drang.’ You will see in a few months, Democrats will be strongly united together and we will

2020 Race Reset: Which Democrat Underdogs Are Still In It?

In the 2020 Race Reset series, we’re taking a fresh look at the candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination as we approach the start of the primaries. We’re also examining what we got right and what we got wrong in our Preview series, published in January 2019. In part two, we’re looking at the candidates we identified as middle-tier underdogs. Where are they now? Michael Bloomberg  Bloomberg said in March 2019 that he would not run for president. But speculation picked up in the fall that Bloomberg would enter after all amid front runner Joe Biden’s various struggles. In November 2019,

“Moderate” Democrats Think Your Tax Dollars Should Fund Their Campaigns

Former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) are viewed as two of the most moderate candidates in the Democratic 2020 presidential field. After the most recent Democratic debate, this may need to be rethought — as well as if any moderate presidential candidate exists in the Democrats’ bullpen.   During the sixth Democratic primary debate, Biden and Klobuchar offered vociferous endorsements of one of the most radical ideas embrace by the modern Democratic Party — the belief that your tax dollars should fund candidates even if you don’t agree with their beliefs as a matter of conscience. At

2020 Race Reset: Which Democrats Can Still Win?

About this time last year, The National Pulse ran a series previewing the 2020 Democrat presidential primaries. We looked at the favorites, the middle-tier underdogs, the long shots, and the wild cards. At the time, there were only two minor candidates in the race and plenty of speculation about who would enter. Now it’s 2020 and there’s exactly one month to go until the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses. A potential field of dozens has been whittled down to a handful of front runners and some outsiders scrambling to keep up. DNC rules requiring candidates to reach certain polling thresholds and fundraising targets to qualify for

Debate Debacle? Biden Pledges to Sacrifice Energy Jobs for “Green” Agenda

During last night’s Democratic presidential debate, front runner Joe Biden took a page out of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 playbook by endorsing mass layoffs for workers in America’s energy sector. Harkening back to the days when Mrs. Clinton called for putting “a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business,” Biden told debate moderator Tim Alberta that he is ready to layoff blue-collar workers in the oil and gas industry. Biden’s gaffe is made more comical by the fact that Clinton stated her coal remarks were the biggest regret of her 2016 campaign.  It’s hard to imagine this sentiment will

New Report Shows Why Trump Could Win New Mexico in 2020

Back in September, I wrote about Donald Trump’s plan to win the state of New Mexico — something no Republican presidential candidate has done since 2004. The president’s strategy focuses on Democrats’ opposition to oil and gas development, which is the driving force of New Mexico’s economy. A new report out from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Global Energy Institute (GEI) shows why this strategy has merit. At a campaign rally in New Mexico, Trump said, “[E]very major Democrat running for president, they want to abolish your production of oil and natural gas. In other words, the Democrats want to completely annihilate

Poll of 2020 Democrat Candidates Reveals Radical Pro-Abortion Stances

The New York Times recently polled the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates on the topic of abortion. The results should be of grave concern for the pro-life movement. The survey was completed by Michael Bennet, Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, Joe Sestak, Tom Steyer, Elizabeth Warren, Marianne Williamson, and Andrew Yang. Steve Bullock, Julián Castro, John Delaney, Tulsi Gabbard, and Kamala Harris did not complete the survey — their answers were pulled from previous plans and remarks. Michael Bloomberg and Deval Patrick were not in the race when polling was conducted. While the survey covered many

Russian Collusion? 2020 Democrats Share Putin’s Goal to End U.S. Fracking

One interesting takeaway from Trump’s impeachment hearings occurred when former White House national security expert Fiona Hill gave testimony on her conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin on fracking. The Washington Free Beacon reports: Under questioning from Rep. Mike Conaway (R., Tex.) at a hearing on the impeachment of President Donald Trump, Hill agreed that a ban on fracking would play into Putin’s hands. “In November 2011, I actually sat next to Vladimir Putin in a conference in which he made precisely that point,” she said. “It was the first time that he had actually done so to a group
