DNC Employs New Rules to Filter Massive 2020 Field into Debates

The historic size of the field is forcing the DNC’s hand.

With two dozen democrats now vying for the 2020 nomination, the embattled DNC has their work cut out for them.

The Democratic National Committee has come under heavy criticism over the course of the last three years after it was determined that they assisted then-candidate Hillary Clinton in “rigging” the primary elections against rival Bernie Sanders.  The rift in 2016 exemplified, and possibly foreshadowed, the chasm that exists today within the democratic party.

Now, with a new guard looking to usurp the establishment figures within the DNC, the 2020 field has blossomed into an unwieldy beast – and that is something that the DNC is being forced to deal with as debate season approaches.

The DNC announced on Wednesday that to qualify for the third round of debates – which they say will be held on September 12 and 13 — candidates must receive two percent or more support in at least four national or early voting state polls recognized by the national party. The threshold for the first two rounds of debates is one percent in three polls.

To make the third and fourth round – which the DNC says will be held in October – candidates must also receive contributions from a minimum 130,000 unique donors, as well as 400 unique donors in at least 20 states. The 130,000 threshold is double the 65,000 needed to make the debate stage at the first two rounds, and the 400 donors in each state is double the 200 currently needed.

The DNC’s mandating that the candidates clear both the polling and donor thresholds is a switch from the first two rounds, when the contenders only had to hit one of the criteria.

This is a dramatic shift for the organization, and is likely being enacted in order to prevent any further cannibalism out on the campaign trail.

The move comes just a month before the first round of primary debates are set to begin.

Wonder if Obama lost money during his two terms?

What’s a billion dollars to a multi-billionaire? Probably nothing. But what’s a billion dollars to a man with an ego the size of Donald Trump’s? Probably a lot. That being said, the duly-elected POTUS didn’t care about losing money. He’s not dumb. He knew what he was getting in to when he ran declared his candidacy back in 2015. But losing a billion dollars is what can happen when you don’t take a salary or make any business deals for four solid years. From USA Today: WASHINGTON – The presidency appears to have cost Donald Trump more than $1 billion in wealth. Trump tumbled nearly 300 spots on Forbes’ billionaire rankings during his presidency, the magazine reported this week, with his estimated wealth falling from $3.5 billion to $2.4 billion during his four-year term. CONTINUED: That’s still good enough for 1,299th place on the magazine’s new billionaire list, down from 1,001st last year. The list is topped by a frequent political target of Trump: Amazon and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos, whose wealth is tagged at $177 billion.

Report: Antifa Radicals Tried Burning Down Building with Federal Agents Inside (Watch)

You’d think this would be bigger news!!

What else is there to say about “antifa?” The radical group is comprised of anti-American children who don’t want to work and demand everything come free. They also don’t care how many innocent people die for their “cause,” either. Check this out, via Right Scoop: CNN only mentions Antifa when they’re arguing that Trump and Republicans believe in conspiracy theories about antifa. Otherwise, the group – which they think is an “idea” – is totally off their radar. Like last night, when they tried to burn down a federal building as part of their ongoing insurrection, CNN didn’t cover it. And still haven’t. In fact in the last year they’ve barely talked about violence in Portland, D.C., and elsewhere, except when they could blame it on conservatives. WATCH: https://twitter.com/TomasMorales_iv/status/1381163263992360960?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1381163263992360960%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fcnns-best-friends-at-antifa-tried-to-torch-a-federal-building-with-people-inside-in-portland-last-night-on-video%2F From Daily Caller: Former Vice President Joe Biden endorsed Antifa in a video announcing his presidential bid Thursday, characterizing the group as “courageous” and saying it’s wrong to draw a moral equivalence between white nationalist groups and those opposing them. The violent methods of Antifa are well documented. The nebulous group often uses these violent means against peaceful conservative speakers, benign free speech advocates, and even journalists.
