Biden, Jr., of The party approved Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, during the last presidential cycle, at which time he described the work of families as “the closest thing’ to ‘my vision of democratic socialism.’ The group’s endorsement of Ms. Warren on Monday, one of the few of a prominent progressive organization this early in the elementary schools, could turn heads, under left-of-center Democrats desperate to Biden defeat Mr., of the moderate front-runner in a primary election where your party is the ideological future of the game.”

Team Biden warns: Warren can’t connect with blue collar voters – Politico: “Elizabeth Warren is rising in the polls, Joe Biden, Massachusetts allies, warning that their election at the history shows you to be running the weakest among the types of voters the Democrats must win to capture the White house. While Warren won re-election easily, 2018, Biden’s backers point to her performance in the independent and blue-collar voters as proof, you’ll fail to appeal to similar voters in the rust belt – just like Hillary Clinton in 2016. ‘The serious concern of many of us Democrats in Massachusetts is that in many counties, where Sen. Warren underperforms, they are demographically and culturally similar to the voters in key swing states,” said state Rep. John Rogers, the back Biden. … Warren critics have long attacked the former Harvard Law School professor is too far liberal and out-of-touch with blue-collar voters to beat, Donald Trump, despite the economic message that speaks directly to many of your concerns.”
Beto comes to Buttigieg about his conciliatory tone in arms – Fox News: “Beto O’rourke launched an expletive-fueled defense of his reputation Sunday to ban assault-style weapons and the imposition of a mandatory repurchases of AR-15 and AK-47, while pushing back on the critics – including fellow human beings in 2020, Democrat Pete Buttigieg. During last Thursday, the presidential debate, said the former Texas Congressman, ‘hell Yes, we take your AR-15, your AK-47…’ Buttigieg [said] the clip … ‘will be played for years, on the Second Amendment rallies with organizations that try to make people afraid by saying, the Democrats are coming for your guns.” … O’rourke pushed back in a tweet: …. “If the candidates had to say, ‘at least, Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell are pretending to be interested,’ sh–, this is not enough. Neither is a survey-test your message. Gun violence is a life or death issue and we, the bold ideas of people across the country.'”

THE RULES: PRODUCTIVE, BUT NOT IN A GOOD WAY
“The public debt of the Union would be looking for a further cause of collision between the separate States or confederacies. The levy in the first instance, and the progressive extinction of afterwards, would be alike productive in a bad mood, and hostility.” – Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 7
TIME-OUT: SWEATER WEATHER
The Atlantic: “In his 2005 memoir, Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, claimed that his outdoor clothing company, established in 1973, was the first, of the concept of the free community. But the idea goes back even further than that. Almost every American understanding of the stratification comes from the middle of the century the U.S. military. In 1943, the Quartermaster Corps, the branch of the U.S. army, an experimental new uniform kit, the it with the name of the M-43 is charged, which led to the procurement of uniforms, among many other important logistics of the war. The ensemble included a woolen undershirt, a long sleeve, flannel shirt, and a sweater. … The military shaped American sense of style in other ways. After demobilization, the historian Paul Fussell explains, the veterans had gotten used to ‘loose, very informal uniforms were primed gear change men’s fashion in the direction of casual wear. The ‘trim fit and exaggerated shoulders” of the pre-war period. Looking ready to get their hands dirty, like a soldier in a M-43 jacket, was more important than a tailor-made look.”

Since then, New Mexico to be an unlikely target for the year 2020, the Trump campaign. It is the country with the highest proportion of Hispanics and Latinos (approximately 1, 2 residents), and it is over with the Democrats in 6 of the last 7 General elections. … Demographers and pollsters say Axios, it is highly unlikely that Trump can win, New Mexico voices of 5 men.

THE LEADER OF THE DRAW LINE ON THE GUN LEGISLATION

Trump has discussed possible legislation with senators of both parties, would expand background checks, but would not go as far as the house-passed legislation that would apply to all gun sales, with a few exceptions. Trump issued a veto threat on the house background checks bill earlier this year, and some Republicans in Congress support.

He is confrontational to the Democrats. Will he Outdo completely loyal to.

FROM THE STANDS
“Thank you, it is sure to be in the political waters again. After years as a news junkie with my own election-night spreadsheet, the last choice, and personal life trials sent me into a cave. My sister, Kirsten, called me “the perfect juror because I am blind to the events around me and trying simply to survive. They also forwarded me a story from the mid-term report a few months ago and it piqued my interest, so I subscribed. I love that I can scroll through the report just as I do my Facebook feed: “‘no, no, no – oh! This looks interesting!’ I can decide how much to invest or you have to pay attention and relieves the anxiety I often feel when I look in the world. Your wit and style, and delicious vocabulary to keep me entertained, informed and on my toes! I also made, ‘I’ll Tell you What’ part of my weekly routine. I can’t often keep up with all the information, but I want to be a good citizen, and I appreciate this format, and your love of our nation. I love that you are intellectually honest in their analysis. I don’t belong to a political party, because, let’s face it, people are people, and I think we often lose our ability to think clearly, because we want to win our team. I know that with you, I’m a straight, but also quirky answer, and not by turning. You nailed it in ITYW this week to talk about the American people always cried is tired. We are tired of it. We are worn out and often beaten down by the choices in front of us and the hatred is spewing out, from all directions. I’m a flake, no snow, but again, thank you for this ‘safe space’ to peek out of my cave and see what is happening in the world. Keep up the good work.” – Laura Whitney, Paradise, Utah.

AND NOW, A WORD FROM CHARLES…
“There is hope for a future, but in the midst of difficult circumstances. Then, in Iran, are flush with the legitimacy with the cash, as a normal international actor, which are in good, recognized, (as Obama once said) as ” a very successful regional power.’ To stop Iran going nuclear at this point is infinitely more difficult and risky.” – Charles Krauthammer (1950-2018) writes in The Washington Post, 16.
