Democratic Debate Becomes A Blood Sport In Nevada

At the Nevada Democratic debate the knives came out and blows were thrown.

Democratic Debate Becomes A Blood Sport In Nevada

The Wednesday Night Democratic Presidential debate promised to be the most violent clash of the campaign so far, and boy was it. Billionaire Mike Bloomberg made his first appearance. Socialist Bernie Sanders took his place on stage as the frontrunner for the first time. For every candidate not named Bloomberg or Sanders, a sense of desperation hung like old sweat on the Nevada stage. More…

Bloomberg Delivers His Best Attack Line Against Bernie Sanders...And It Was Pretty Brutal

February 19, 2020 By Matt Vespa, Townhall

Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg jumped into the 2020 ring. Or was it a shark tank? He secured a spot on the debate stage for the Nevada debate—and everyone was gunning for him. Mike clogs the spot. He threatens Amy Klobuchar and former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. He has to be destroyed. He pulls from bases of support that makes everyone’s path to the nomination no matter how small, even smaller. They had to deliver a thousand blows to him. More…

Trump Budget a Cut above the Rest

February 14, 2020 By Tony Perkins, Family Research Center

“A great country can’t borrow a trillion dollars a year,” Stephen Moore warned. Nobody has to tell Donald Trump that. The man who’s responsible for the economic boom knows a thing or two about finance. So maybe, when he sends a budget plan to Congress, they should listen.

President Trump was never a politician. What he was is a successful businessman. For years, he turned companies around and made them profitable — and he could do the same for America, if leaders would give him a chance. There’s just one problem: not much of Congress has the stomach for it.

Moore, a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation, helped formulate a plan with the Trump campaign nearly four years ago. The first part of the strategy, he told “Washington Watch” listeners, was “grow the economy, get people back into jobs, get people off welfare and into work, get companies more profitable so that they hire more workers… [And] when companies make more money, they pay more taxes.” All of that, he agreed, has gone very well. “The economy is flying high right now. Maybe the best economy in 30 years. [There are a] record number of people working… Tax revenues to the government are just bursting every record. [But] the problem is that there have been almost no spending controls.” More…

San Francisco middle school descends into ‘Lord of the Flies’ environment

February 14, 2020 By John Sexton, Hot Air News

Aptos Middle School is located in San Francisco and, from the outside, appears like an ordinary school. But today the San Francisco Chronicle reports a small group of disruptive students, somewhere between 5 and 20, have turned it into something reminiscent of the Lord of the Flies. And, at least so far, school authorities seem unable to do much about it:

One of the scariest incidents at Aptos this school year occurred in September, when two girls attacked a sixth-grade girl on the schoolyard. The girls pulled the sixth-grader to the ground by her hair, pulled a chunk of it out of her skull and kicked her in the face and the back of her head. More…
