Booker seeks $1.7 million infusion to stay in Democratic White House race

WASHINGTON, Sept 21 (Reuters) - U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker will drop out of the running for his party's 2020 White House nomination unless he can raise $1.7 million over the next 10 days for his struggling campaign, his campaign said on Saturday.

The mounting scale of rival campaigns and the prospect of higher thresholds for participating in future Democratic debates have forced Booker's campaign to an "inflection point" where it must grow quickly or have no "legitimate long-term path forward," according to campaign manager Addisu Demissie.

It'll be fascinating to see if the current dispute over the whistleblower will be a big boost to
the Biden campaign. Personally I think the longer Bernie and Liz Warren stay in the race
splitting the progressive vote, its going to make Biden the nominee for he has most of
the centrist lane to himself. The goal has to be to defeat Trump no matter who is the
nominee but any ticket with Joe Biden as the nominee, has to have a strong running mate
for he's going to be a one term President.

Media talking heads always have to have something to say.

I saw the quarterly reports Biden is drawing in close enough too the others to still be competitive. So is Harris, don't forget her.

These 7 Candidates Now Qualify For The November Democratic Debate

When we last checked on the candidate lineup for the November debate, the field was looking pretty thin. So thin, in fact, it looked like we were headed for a debate with only five candidates on stage. For viewers, a stage of five candidates might have been a welcome change compared to prior debates, or the September debate, for that matter, which will feature an eye-popping twelve candidates.

The November debate stage grew this week when New Jersey Senator Cory Booker and billionaire Democratic activist Tom Steyer received the polls they both needed to secure a podium next month.

It's not irony, she's being consistent enough, every time I've paid the slightest attention to what she has to say she's consistently portrayed a Republican kind of mind set. A military service Republican mind set I've seen before in others. She's kind of old fashioned and I detect some following in her papa's footsteps. It's probably a good thing she's not taken a whim to make a man miserable in marriage destine for failure, no mere mortal man would ever match her papa, that she hasn't indulged in that, I regard that as a plus for her.

Unusual religious views aren't all that uncommon amoung their ranks.

I knew one nutty guy who was founding his own religion as he went along. God apparently had a way of talking directly with him. But that was in his private time, he did his duties well. He was a Captain at the time, where he should have been for the age he was at the time. I have no idea where he finished, maybe he made it to General rank and then was out. By now he's out.

She wasn't missed at last night's 2nd equality forum, either.

Very wise of her to skip showing up.

This is a video with Tulsi Gabbard’s father, Mike Gabbard. He was the founder of “Stop Promoting Homosexuality America” and she is the daughter in this video.

Tonight she is skipping the LGBTQ town hall.

I wonder why.

At last night's CNN forum on LGBTQ issues, Elizabeth Warren was asked about marriage was between one man and one woman. I love her answer.

Quote:
"Let's say you're on the campaign trail and a supporter approaches you and says, 'Senator, I'm old-fashioned, and my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman.' What is your response?" asked Morgan Cox, board chairman of the Human Rights Campaign, which co-hosted the event.

"Well, I'm going to assume it's a guy who said that, and I'm going to say, 'Then just marry one woman. I'm cool with that,'" Warren said, to laughs and applause from the audience.

As the clapping subsided, the senator paused before going in for the kill — "'assuming you can find one' — drawing sustained applause and cheers from the crowd.

*sigh*. You know, sometimes I really wonder if Jacob Wohl really works for our side.

I'm also tempted to think even this "reveal" is an Onion story. I mean. The guy's name is "Newaldass"? For real?

Dude didn't even know Harris was a real person, let alone running for POTUS? :roll:

This guy reminds me so much of the dumbass Woody Harrelson character in Wag the Dog.

Man Who Claimed To Be Kamala Harris’ Lover Now Says It Was All Fake
Sean Newaldass said he thought the California senator was fictional, but now he plans to vote for her.
https://www.huffpost.com/entry/sean-new ... efdbae5b79

A man who claimed earlier this week that he had been paid for sex by presidential candidate Kamala Harris now says he was hired for an acting role.

Oh, and he claims now that he thought Harris was a fictional person, according to an exclusive interview with the Daily Beast. :roll:

On Wednesday, 26-year-old personal trainer Sean Newaldass participated in a news conference organized by Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman, two far-right conspiracy theorists who are already known for pushing fraudulent claims.

Newaldass read from a fact sheet about his alleged relationship with the California senator, which can be seen here, and claimed he and Harris had a total of 11 “sexual encounters” in hotels in Iowa; Washington, D.C.; and New York City, according to the Daily Dot.

[snip]

He said Wohl and Burkman hired him after he answered a CraigsList ad seeking a “male actor” for “performance art in DC.”

Newaldass said he believed the news conference was actually an audition for a Spike TV show that no longer exists.

In fact, he had no clue Harris was a politician, much less a potential presidential candidate. :roll:

“I thought I was acting for a role in a movie, like a role in a TV series,” Newaldass told the Daily Beast. “I thought everything was staged, I’m thinking everyone is an actor.”

Even more important: “I’m completely oblivious to who [Harris] is,” Newaldass told the Daily Beast. :roll:

[snip]

Newaldass said he was supposed to receive $500 for his services but hasn’t yet.

[snip][end]

Jeezus, Jacob. You not only suck at this, you're a cheap mofo. Where did you find this dumbass?

I'm pro-it's nobody's fucking business.

Did anyone catch Rachel Maddow's report Thursday on Ghouliani's now cancelled trip to Vienna Austria?

https://foreignpolicy.com/2019/10/03/gi ... ent-biden/

It would appear that Ghouli was going to meet with (wait for it)..... a Ukrainian gas mogul by the name of Dmytro Firtash with ties to the upper-echelon's of the Russian Mob (read Putin). Apparently this Firtash was the source for documents that Ghouli was using a prop on the ABC Sunday Morning Show, "This Week With George Stephanopolous". It be noted that Firtash is under House in Vienna and awaiting extradition to the U.S.

According the Ghouli, the documents he was waving around proved corruption on the part of Joe Biden's Son Hunter. A charge that is yet to be proven. It is knhown however that 45, in a phone call to the President of Ukraine asked for a quid pro quo regarding U.S. Military Hardware that Ukraine needs in it's war with Russia. In exchange for hardware, the Ukrainian President would investigate/get campaign dirt on Democratic Presidential Candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden.

Seeking the assistance of and accepting the assistance of a Foeign Power or Foreign National that would effect the outcome of U.S. Elections is a direct violation of U.S. Federal Law. Rudy the Ghouli was doing exactly that, seeking the Assistance of Foreign National (Firtash) in order gain access to information detrimental to former Vice President Biden. We know that Russia interfered in the 2016 Presidential Election and Ghouliani was wanted further foreign assistance in the 2020 Presidential Election as well.

On Friday Federal Authorities announced that Ghouliani was under indictment for his actions. Ghouli was planning a trip to Vienna when two of his clients, Russian Born U.S. Citizens were arrested at IAD (Dulles International Airport) carrying one way tickets to Germany

The Russian Born U.S. Citizens, Lev Parnas and Andrey Kukushkin funneled over Three Hundred Thousand Dollars ($300,000.00) in foreign money to the 2016 Presidential Campaign of 45. Again seeking or accepting foreign assistance to effect the outcome of a U.S. Election is breaking U.S. Federal Law.

During the 2016, Russian Operative Maria Putina used her access (she was screwing a whole damn bunch of Virile White Male Cons) to the N.R.A. to funnel millions in Black Russian Money into the Campaign of 45.

Ghouiani is repeating 2016. Seeking foreign assistance to elected 45. Ghouli is now under Federal Investigation.

The Russian Mob is directly inlvolved as well.

This what the Cult of 45 is willing to do to win. Dems will need to really up their game or democracy will DOA should 45 win.

Can we get Trump for any of this? I don't think so. Will Giuliani end up prosecuted and maybe even going to the federal pen for it? Perhaps. Perhaps Trump will pardon him. Trump doesn't really give a shit about Giuliani or anybody else. So maybe there would be a pardon, maybe not. It depends on Trump's level of affective disorganization and affective disregulation moment by moment. When push comes to shove, probably not even his kids. If his kids were at risk and doing something about it might cause Trump to be at risk, he will hang his own kids out to dry and twist in the wind, like everybody else.

So Giuliani is a pig. We already know he's a pig. I don't need any additional proof that any of these motherfuckers are pigs. What I need, is for them to...

1. Be out of office and/or out of power if not an office holder.
2. Be in prison.

He and his bros will do everything they can to make certain rump is reelected, just watch.

And to think I wished him well from his heart attack, you FUCKER.

This is of course his way of signaling all of his supporters to not vote for ANY democrat.

I'm not pro or anti choice or pro or anti gay marriage.

I'm pro-it's nobody's fucking business.


I'm pro-equality and pro-equity, meaning if the straights can do it, so can we. I.e., there is no reason for the government to discriminate or permit discrimination on the basis of random social characteristics. Not in the matter of the military, or marriage, or employment, or immigration, or any other civil and human rights.

None.

As far as pro-choice is concerned, I'm fine with using that term for myself but really, I'm pro-women's physical and reproductive autonomy. That includes for trans women, transfeminine and transmasculine people, and trans/transfeminine/transmasculine men who may also need equal access to Planned Parenthood, birth control, abortion, etc.

I believe the pro-choice position means pro-reproductive freedom.

To me, that also means nobody should be forced to have an abortion against their will (this hasn't been a problem in the US since the more active days of eugenics in the early 20th century .... but is in other countries like China). Nobody should be forced into using semi-permanent contraception (i.e. Norplant forced on women on welfare, or in the justice system). Women should not be forced to bear children against their will, but also should not have their choice to have children taken away, either.

As for marriage being nobody's business ... well, I get the point, somewhat, but it reminds me of some conservatives like Rand Paul who say "get the government out of marriage". Well, how? Government issues you the marriage license. Always has, always will. You may do the ceremony in a house of worship, but it's the gubmint who recognizes your marriage with that certificate. In reality, the vows and the ritual are just a formality; and a justice of the peace can (and sometimes does) marry people. When you get a divorce, you do it in a courthouse, because the judicial branch has to dissolve the contract the government created in the first place.

We have rules enforced by the government saying you can't marry blood relations, or multiple people, or someone under 16/18 ... there do need to be some rules and restrictions. No animals either Rick Santorum, hmmkay! It's just like so many other people I see no compelling reason why the government must enforce that the partner must be of the opposite gender. There's no governmental interest there.

Unfortunately, this is where the Sanders paradox becomes most visible. I know he says he is a Socialist. But the thing is, the things he is advocating are not. They are what would be called social democratic policies in Europe. Social democratic parties in Scandinavia - he often points to them as examples - are not anti capitalist. They may want to socialize parts of the economy, but they are not for ending capitalism. They just want to create a healthy mixed economy.

Even his fans call him an "FDR Democrat". Well, as FDR said quite distinctly, he was trying to save capitalism with the New Deal, not end it.

The only area where he may actually be a socialist is in health insurance - not health care. Even Sanders is not advocating that all health care in the country be run by the government (like Cuba). His single payer plan would end all private sector insurance, though. Almost every other Democratic primary candidate, including Warren, has not gone that far.

I don't know what he believes in his heart of hearts, he could actually want some Socialist policies, but he knows the people who ran as true Socialists, like Eugene Debs, got 6% of the vote. So whatever he believes, he's not running, as a Democrat, on actual Socialist policies. If he did, he'd probably be doing even worse in the primaries.

Warren has said she is a capitalist who favors regulated capitalism, with protections for workers and consumers, along with a mixed economy where government provides some functions ALONG WITH the private sector (e.g. transportation). So am I. Not only do I agree with her, but she's putting it exactly the way I would put it, without calling myself something I'm not (i.e. a "Socialist").

Good for you. You're fine with all sorts of stuff and you're not fine with all sorts of other stuff. Your opinions are well noted and like assholes...everybody's got one.

But legally...what reproductive rights is really all about is medical confidentiality. Which basically means, it's nobody's fucking business but the business between a woman and her physician. The problem is that our legal system is not a justice system. It's completely politicized which allows state legislatures to generate bills and pass laws in violation of standing medical confidentiality statutes that are on the books in every state in this country. What every one of these laws state is that nobody has the right to anybody's medical information, including what legal procedures have been provided, or are about to be provided, WITHOUT A WRITTEN CONSENT FOR THE RELEASE OF SAID INFORMATION SIGNED BY THE PATIENT OR CLIENT. Which covers any patient or client information released to anybody regardless of their official government office, or whatever fucking church they represent.

So...if you're a woman and you want to make sure that your medical confidentiality rights and your reproductive rights are protected and will remain protected, here's the way to make sure of it. Move to a decent country where your rights are protected. Because it's not this country which is half full of asshole christians including asshole catholics and asshole politicians who pander to assholes who refuse to mind their own fucking business. It's not this country and IMO, it will never be this country,

Good for you.


Yes, I know. I don't have any trouble saying so, either.

:problem: please stop screaming.

Reproductive rights is also "really all about" health services access, equity in access, and complete autonomy in seeking out that access. It's not just a matter of legal medical confidentiality.

Quote:

:lol: emigration to some nonexistent reproductive rights utopia is not a real alternative for most American women, you get that, right? Especially for those who already struggle with access and equity.

"If you don't like it, move" is classic GOP 2007. It's also MAGAhat 2019.

The better course of action is to ignore the kind of nihilism and defeatism behind this pie-in-the-sky solution and continue to build on the work done to remove barriers to reproductive rights.

Given that in the early 20th century, medical professionals and eugenicist ob-gyn's were sterilizing women against their will, I would say "medical confidentiality" definitely was not the key issue.

Supposed to have ended with Skinner v. Oklahoma, 1942 ... but in fact, as books have often documented, continued quietly into the 1970s.

The debate over Norplant and it being ordered for use by (almost always minority) women by courts and governments is contemporary - and again has nothing, per se, to do with confidentiality.

Those are also reproductive rights/freedom issues.
