New Poll Shows Biden Surging Among Democrat Voters As He Calls for Public Medicare, $15 Minimum Wage

(Hamden, CT) — New poll numbers show former Vice President Joe Biden surging to the lead among Democratic presidential hopefuls. Quinnipiac University released findings that have Biden with 38-percent of the vote among Democrat-leaning voters.

Rounding out the field is Massachussets Senator Elizabeth Warren at 12-percent, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders at 11-percent, and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg at ten-percent. Over half the respondents say Biden has the best chance to beat President Trump.

Part of the surge is due to Biden is calling for a 15-dollar federal minimum wage, a public option for Medicare and more taxes for the rich. Speaking at his first official campaign rally in Pittsburgh Monday, the former Vice President said the fleshed out specifics of his policy proposals would be available in a few weeks. But basically, he said that all Americans should have the option to buy into Medicare, not just those age 65 and older.

He’s also firing back at President Trump over labor unions. Biden tweeted yesterday that he is sick of Trump “badmouthing unions.” Biden officially unveiled his presidential bid last week. His comment followed a Trump tweet that the heads of labor unions “rip off their membership with ridiculously high dues, medical and other expenses while being paid a fortune.” He also insisted that rank-and-file union members “love Trump.”

Biden argued that organized labor built the middle class in the U.S.

Biden: Running To Help Restore Soul Of Nation

(Pittsburgh, PA-AP) — Former Vice President Joe Biden says he is running for president to help restore the soul of the nation. During a rally in Pittsburgh today, the Democratic presidential candidate called the middle class the backbone of America. Biden said the middle class built the U.S. The former VP chose a union hall to hold his first rally since announcing his White House bid last week. He called himself a union man and said union busting must stop. He said many workers feel powerless.

Biden noted that the stock market is roaring but said many hard working people are just not feeling it. Biden was President Obama’s VP for eight years. He decided against a White House run in 2016 after the death of his son Beau, who lost a long struggle with brain cancer.

Keeping It Real: Kellyanne Conway’s Husband’s Uses Expletive To Describe The White House

(Washington, DC) – Conversation around the Conway dinner table must be quite exciting at night.

Sitting at one head of the table is the senior White House adviser who has contradicted herself on numerous occasions, created disasters and flat-out lied at the direction of her boss, the current President of the United States, Donald Trump.

At the opposite head of the table is a former veteran Republican and an accomplished attorney who refuses to let the lies and dysfunction stand as truth and the identity of the most powerful house in the world. George Conway is not standing by his wife’s side tap dancing for Donald Trump’s.

If Donald Trump could zip his mouth shut, i’m sure he’d try. Mr. Conway has been critical and honest about the current state of the White House to the shock of many because as stated he is married to Donald Trump’s right-hand woman. George has gone so far as to say that he is uncomfortable with being a Republican at the moment calling the GOP a personality cult; but it’s his recent comments about the White House that have people laughing and nodding their heads in concurrence.  On the Yahoo program Skullduggery, Conway, in the most colorful way possible, described the White House as a ‘sh**-show – in a dumpster fire’.  Insert cringe emoji here.

One would imagine that comments like this would have him sleeping on the couch but Conway says, “If I had a nickel for everybody in Washington who disagreed with their spouse about something that happens in this town, I wouldn’t be on this podcast. I’d be probably on a beach somewhere. I don’t think she likes it. But I’ve told her, I don’t like the administration. So it’s even.”

The interview also revealed that Conway was under consideration for a top post as head of the Justice Department’s Civil Division, but said he took himself out of the running, shortly after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey and the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller.

He said, “If I get this door prize, I’m going to be in the middle of a department he’s at war with,” Conway recalled thinking. “Why would anybody want to do this?”


U.S. Grand Jury Indicts 13 Russians For Election-Related Fraud

(Washington, DC) — Thirteen Russian nationals are being indicted for election-related fraud in the 2016 presidential campaign. In a Justice Department news briefing today, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said the defendants waged “information warfare” in the U.S. Rosenstein stressed there is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election. But the effort was definitely there. With damaging releases aimed to tarnish Hillary Clinton’s chances.

Rosenstein said Russians violated U.S. laws to interfere with the American political process.

He noted that the Russians recruited Americans to stage rallies but said the Americans were not aware of the Moscow connection.

A Politico article by Cristiano Lima says,  Special counsel Robert Mueller’s office on Friday unveiled an indictment against 13 Russian nationals and three foreign entities on charges relating to the 2016 election meddling.

The indictment, which includes conspiracy to defraud the United States and aggravated identity theft, depicts an elaborate web of initiatives aimed at influencing the presidential race.

Here is a look at some of the most startling findings from the Department of Justice announcement.trump-russia-interactiveRussians paid Trump rally-goers to simulate Clinton jailing

According to the document, the Russian nationals and their associates paid people attending pro-Donald Trump rallies in Florida to carry out numerous “tasks,” including asking one to construct a cage at an event and another to dress up as Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton behind bars.

“Defendants and their co-conspirators asked one U.S. person to build a cage on a flatbed truck and another U.S. person to wear a costume portraying Clinton in a prison uniform,” the indictment read.

Calls for Clinton to be jailed were persistent at Trump rallies throughout 2016, with crowds often breaking out into chants of “Lock her up!” In local reports from 2016 rallies in Florida, rally-goers can be seen staging Clinton displays with caged mannequins.
