Democratic Party


This article was originally posted at The Daily Caller. California Sen. Kamala Harris made a number of dubious claims and unrealistic promises in her presidential campaign announcement, but one line in particular stood out. “I’m running to fight for an America … Where reproductive rights are not just protected by the Constitution of the United States but […]


The crisis engulfing Virginia’s Democratic leaders continues to rage two weeks after the first scandal. The controversies come at a critical time, as the entire state legislature — where Republicans have a tiny 51-49 majority in the House and another tiny 21-19 majority in the Senate — is up for re-election in November. Here’s an […]


Much ink has been spilled over the last week on the absurdity of Democrats’ “Green New Deal.” Although it’s tempting to dive into the proposal’s specifics — especially since this legislation has been cosponsored by a number of 2020 Democrat candidates including Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, and, presumably, Bernie Sanders — I […]


Virginia state Delegate Kathy Tran, a Democrat, introduced a bill this week that she freely admitted would legalize abortion at any point of pregnancy, up until birth. During questions about her bill in a House subcommittee from Republican Delegate Todd Gilbert, Tran was asked about the bill’s allowance of third trimester abortions if an abortionist certifies that […]


Last week, in what will be remembered as one of the shrewdest political moves of his presidency, Donald Trump flipped the script on Democrats Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi by revealing their complete indifference towards the lives of DREAMers. President Trump’s reasonable immigration compromise was rejected outright by a Democratic Party so blinded by its […]


This article was originally posted at Townhall. If you’ve been paying attention to the rhetoric coming from elected Democrats and progressive activists in recent weeks, you’ve probably noticed a calculated effort to frame issues in the vein of morality.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared to reporters that building a border wall would be an “immorality.” Abortion activist Amelia Bonow told […]


More Democrats have announced bids for president in 2020, with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, former HUD Secretary Julian Castro, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii joining the fray. In the first three parts of our 2020 preview series, we looked at the front runners, middle-tier, and bottom-of-the-barrel candidates. Today we’re looking at the […]


In the past several decades, Democrats have repeatedly walked all over Republicans in virtually every single spending negotiation. With the aid of a willing media, Democrats have successfully pinned blame for any previous shutdown on Republicans, and rather than fight, Republicans have always given in and acquiesced to whatever the Democrats wanted. But not this time. […]


Tonight, President Trump will deliver an address from the Oval Office on immigration and the ongoing government shutdown. Trump’s speech will be followed by remarks from Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Judging from the format alone, it seems unlikely that either side is prepared to make much in the way […]


It’s 2019, and the new Congress has been sworn in, with Nancy Pelosi reclaiming the speakership after eight years in the minority. The 2020 Democratic presidential primaries are underway in earnest, as the first big name — Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren — has formed an exploratory committee (and did a hilariously fake Instagram live video). In the […]


Last week, we began our preview of the 2020 presidential primaries by looking at the front runners for the Democratic nomination. In this next part of our series, we’re looking at the middle tier of candidates who are reaching more than 1 percent in early polls. These are the candidates who would have a decent […]


The 2020 Democrat presidential primaries are taking shape as the first real round of polls comes out. In five national polls released since the midterm elections on November 6th, former Vice President Joe Biden is the clear front runner, leading in four polls and trailing Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) by just two points in the fifth. Most […]


With the 2018 midterm elections one month behind us, the 2020 presidential race is all but officially underway. Republicans fielded 17 major candidates in the 2016 election, the most in recent memory, but the Democrats may blow that number out of the water, with up to 30 major candidates who may jump in. Democrats have […]


Last week, I joined thousands of Americans in attending the #WalkAway march in Washington, D.C. Unless you caught President Trump’s tweet in support of the event, you might be unaware of its enormous success due to the virtual news blackout it received from the mainstream media. Fortunately, after attending the rally, it is abundantly clear […]


With less than two weeks before Election Day, races all around the country are tightening. The fight over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh provided the boost Republicans needed to close the intensity gap. What once seemed like a certainty — a blue wave — is now up in the air. There are several possible outcomes […]


President Trump reminded us that he is surpassed by none when it comes branding when he recently unveiled his new slogan for the midterms, “Democrats produce mobs, Republicans produce jobs.” Is there a more succinct summary of the political divide since Trump’s election than this? Let’s recap: At least a handful of Trump administration officials have […]


Amid speculation of a 2020 presidential bid, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) attempted to dispel the notion that she falsely asserted Native American heritage for personal gain by releasing a DNA test showing she was as little as 1/1,024th Native American. If this was her 2020 kickoff, it gave new meaning to the phrase “stumble out […]


Yesterday every single Senate Democrat voted to abolish new low-cost health insurance plans made available by the Trump administration. While the joint resolution narrowly failed in a 50-50 vote, it was revealing to see how Democrats from Chuck Schumer to Joe Manchin were so mortified by the mere existence of affordable insurance policies that they […]


The Kavanaugh confirmation fight may be over. But the larger battle is still raging. For months, polls have showed an “intensity gap” between Republicans and Democrats for the 2018 midterm elections. Democrats have been much more excited to vote in the elections, and enthusiasm is critical for turnout. But polls taken in the aftermath of […]


This article was originally posted at The Hill. Thursday’s appearance by Judge Brett Kavanaugh before the Senate Judiciary Committee was a watershed moment for contemporary American politics. But while many stories will, understandably, focus on the continuing escalation of political polarization and tribalism which the nationally televised hearing made painfully visible, there is another, perhaps even […]
