Time Is Almost Up for MANY 2020 Dem Hopefuls After DNC Makes Huge Announcement On Debates

Buh-bye!

There are far too many Democrats running for president in 2020.

This will only serve to further hurt their chances of defeating President Trump.

Now, the Democrat National Committee is set to cut the field in half in the very near future.

Is the Biden Administration Destroying Our Constitution?

It seems that while the DNC was willing to tolerate a field of at least two dozen candidates for a short time, they won’t be coddling competitors like Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), who can barely clear 1% in national polls, forever, even if Gillibrand and others insist their Oval Office dreams aren’t dead.

[…]

“To appear in the party’s third debate, which will be broadcast by ABC News and Univision, candidates will have to earn 2 percent support in four party-sanctioned polls between late June and August. In addition, they will have to show they’ve attracted at least 130,000 donors since the start of the campaign, including at least 400 from 20 different states,” WaPo reports.

[…]

But while culling the herd early is probably a good move for the DNC, as it lets party brass consolidate their support and concentrate on handling fewer candidates while it maps out its 2020 election strategy, there’s no escaping that this selective reduction is coming more than a year out from the presidential election, and just under six months out of the first presidential primary. Candidates will have barely unpacked from the Iowa State Fair before they’re required to hit the bricks to double their supporter numbers.

Democrat Senator Kamala Harris (CA) is quite the cut-up.

For some reason, former Speaker Newt Gingrich thinks she has the best chance of earning her party’s nomination for president come 2020.

While on CNN, Harris said every person in America – whether documented or not – should be given healtthcare.

But wait, there’s more…

From Free Beacon:

Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) on Sunday voiced her support for illegal immigrants having access to health care and public education.

Jake Tapper asked, “The bill also says, ‘Every individual who is a resident of the United States is entitled to benefits for health care services under this act.’ Not every individual is a citizen, but every individual is a resident, so you support giving universal health care and Medicare for All to people who are in this country illegally?

Harris responded, “Let me just be very clear about this. I am opposed to any policy that would deny in our country any human being from access to public safety, public education, or public health. Period.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
