Democratic Senators including Elizabeth Warren and Mazie Hirono introduced the “Anti-Racism in Public Health Act of 2021,” which would establish a Center on Antiracism at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The federally funded body would “declare racism a public health crisis and name racism as an historical and present threat to the physical and mental health and well-being of the United States and world” and “aim to develop new knowledge in the science and practice of antiracism.” To do so, the National Center on Antiracism and Health would study “the public health impacts of implicit racial bias, White
The New York Times‘ endorsement for the Democratic Primary is historic. It shuns the political class as we’ve known it, and tacks to the hard left on a number of policy issues. This is the most important newspaper on the establishment-left giving two cheers for socialism. Conservatives don’t typically care about newspaper endorsements. Mostly because we rarely ever get them. But for the left the endorsement of the New York Times is the holy grail of campaign hat-tips. In endorsing two candidates, the Gray Lady has admitted there is not one clear stand out in the Democratic field. In endorsing two
Speaking at a rally in Marshalltown, Iowa, Democrat presidential primary candidate Elizabeth Warren demanded that men who identify as women and are incarcerated should be placed in female prisons.
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
Reports indicate that former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is preparing the paperwork to qualify for the Democratic presidential primary in at least one state. This news comes on the heels of increasing speculation that both Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton could join the race as late entries. Why are a growing number of Democratic politicians mulling a presidential run? Readers likely know the answer. Many Democrats don’t believe that their current front runner — Sen. Elizabeth Warren — can defeat Donald Trump. Sen. Warren made the political calculation to hitch her wagon to the socialist policies of Bernie
When Elizabeth Warren stopped her tour bus to buy lemonade from a stand run by two 11-year-old girls, she had no idea that the girls’ parents would turn it into a teaching moment. Neither did she know that the money she spent would be donated to a pro-life charity. Earlier this summer, Warren stopped her bus to buy $10 worth of lemonade at a stand in rural Iowa. She tweeted about the stop, saying, “Stopped for a quick drink at a lemonade stand in Harlan, Iowa. When life gives you lemons, make big structural change!” The stand was being run
As the Democratic candidates prepare for the second round of presidential debates Tuesday and Wednesday night, here are four key candidates whose economic agendas I’ll be watching for: Joe Biden Biden will likely come out swinging after his last debate performance was broadly criticized for appearing overly tired. On economic issues, I am most looking forward to seeing if he puts forward a more centrist vision than he has thus far in the campaign. While Biden has held back support for Medicare-for-All by continuing to champion Obamacare, he has held the socialist line on tax policy, stating the “first thing”
Democrats are now openly saying that if you disagree with same-sex marriage, you’re no longer a decent person. Some on the Left have been saying that for a few years now, forgetting that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both publicly opposed same-sex marriage as recently as seven years ago. But now, even prominent national Democrats who want to be president are declaring it. The most recent incident of this started when former Vice President Joe Biden referred to current Vice President Mike Pence as “a decent guy.” Pence has had the reputation as one of the nicest people in Washington,
