Stephen Green’s Lightning Round brings hot headlines to Bill Whittle and Scott Ott in a fast-paced week in review. As AOC gets solar plant workers fired, President Trump goes bigly after Black voters, and Democrats tear their party apart over billionaire Bloomberg trying to buy an election, while Elizabeth Warren attempts the same with other people’s money.
As Elizabeth Warren appears to fade, Bernie Sanders inches up, and Joe Biden startles everyone by continuing to draw breath, Pete Buttigieg and Tulsi Gabbard gain strength. Iowa looms around the bend, and Democrats still can’t decide if they prefer a socialist geezer, a moderate man-child, or some other intersectional mashup.
Douglas McKinnon writing at TheHill.com says the Democratic ticket that scares President Trump the most is Mayor Pete Buttigieg with Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. Two young, telegenic, military veterans, who can think on their feet and connect through the camera with apparent authenticity, even Bill Whittle thinks they’re the best pairing in the current field.
Elizabeth Warren’s Meme Team (WMT) is a new grassroots model from her presidential campaign to unleash viral Hell on President Trump. Is the incumbent doomed? How can he stand in the face of this template for ridicule?
The New York Times polls battleground states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Florida and finds President Donald Trump beating leading Democrats Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders — despite Trump’s punishing disapproval rating, and other polls that show him trailing nationwide.
Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter, rejects dirty political ad money. Meanwhile, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg wants it all, and refuses to filter out the false claims. Is this just a beautiful flowering of the free market, or is Twitter a censor, and Facebook a libelous publisher? Will President Elizabeth Warren still break up both of them?
New study shows that almost all political tweets come from a tiny fraction of Twitter users. Does this mean that America is not as divided as we’d think from scanning social media? Should government step in to stop these bad actors from splitting our Republic, risking a civil war?
Facebook’s CEO Mark “$70 Billion” Zuckerberg echoes Bernie “Ban Billionaires” Sanders — tells his staff that “no one deserves that much money.” But he’s not sure how much money someone should have.
Shay Assad gets forced into retirement from the Pentagon after saving taxpayers billions of dollars through shrewd negotiation. A reformer who proposed ways to catch defective pricing, and to hold defense contractors accountable for performance when issuing progress payments, Assad suddenly fell out of favor after years of award-winning performance. Donald Trump ran for office promising to drain the swamp. Why not drain THIS swamp?
Democrat Presidential candidates Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren unveil plans to tax wealth progressively to fund Medicare for All, and the valiant fight against man-made climate change.
An objective observer would think the Democrat presidential candidates are committing electoral suicide after their performances in recent debates. On guns, climate, immigration, health care and more, they’ve staked out extreme Progressive positions which will dog their eventual nominee in the general election contest. Will even one candidate get off the Left-wing crazy train before it goes completely off the rails?
The Washington Post says Democrat presidential candidates have deep policy divisions, but do policies even matter in a battle with incumbent Republican President Donald Trump, the post-policy president?
Sen. Elizabeth Warren dances a two-step to win the party nomination as she woos Progressives in the revolutionary style of Bernie Sanders, and comforts the rank-and-file faithful Democrats like Joe Biden does. Is she a political master, or merely setting herself up for President Trump’s charges that she’s two-faced, unstable, dishonest…in other words — a politician!
Bill Whittle Now analyzes the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats offered by the Democratic presidential candidates now locked in a 3-way tie for second place (first in the hearts of their Democratic countrymen). Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, and former Vice President Joe Biden, each come to the challenge of winning the Democratic presidential nomination with different advantages and handicaps.
