The Dirty Two Faced Dem's Debate Was A Give Away The Store, True Phoney Game Show.

The Dem's Debate Was A Give Away The Store Game Show.

Every body had something to out give the other.
Yes people, do you know where the government gets its money?
From You!
The Dems are all promising to take from working Americans,
much of what they have, and give it to non workers who have
their hands out for that free government cheese.

The game plan of the Dems is and always has been
to promise freedom from the need for a cash life to the vulnerable,
uneducated people, to get their votes.  The Dems always
 attract the poor as dogs to a bone.

When they gain the trust and votes from the push overs, and acquire
the power they lust for, the promises evaporate into thin air.

No 'boots on the ground' in Iran dispute, Trump says; cites 'unlimited time' for new deal

Tim Ahmann, Babak Dehghanpisheh

WASHINGTON/GENEVA (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that he was “not talking boots on the ground” should he take military action against Iran and that he had “unlimited time” to try to forge an agreement with Tehran.

Iran suggested it was just one day from breaching a limit in the 2015 nuclear deal that restricted its stockpile of uranium, a move that would pressure European countries aiming to be neutral to pick sides.

The fate of the multilateral nuclear deal, under which Iran agreed to curbs on its nuclear program in return for relief from economic sanctions, has been at the heart of the U.S.-Iran dispute which took on a military dimension in recent weeks.

Last week Iran shot down a U.S. drone it said was in its air space, which Washington denied. Trump called off retaliatory air strikes at the last minute, saying too many people would have died. Washington also accused Tehran or its proxies of attacks in May and June on six tankers in the Gulf region, which Iran denies.

Asked on Fox Business Network if a war was brewing, Trump replied: “I hope we don’t but we’re in a very strong position if something should happen.”

“I’m not talking boots on the ground,” Trump said. “I’m just saying if something would happen, it wouldn’t last very long.”

Speaking later at a gathering of religious conservatives, the U.S. president talked about whether there could be a new agreement with Iran, suggesting he could live without one.

“If it doesn’t happen, that’s fine with me,” Trump said. “I have unlimited time, as far as I’m concerned.”

Trump last year unilaterally withdrew from the nuclear deal with Iran struck by his predecessor President Barack Obama, arguing that it did not go far enough to restrict Iran’s nuclear and missile programs and other activities in the Middle East.

He has since re-imposed U.S. economic sanctions on Iran, including taking the unprecedented step in May of trying to drive Iran’s oil exports to zero.

Iran warned the U.N. Security Council on Wednesday that it would no longer be burdened with preserving the pact, originally struck by Iran and Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States. European states pushed Tehran to stick with the agreement because there was no peaceful alternative.

“Iran alone cannot, shall not and will not take all of the burdens any more to preserve the JCPOA,” Iran’s U.N. Ambassador Majid Takht Ravanchi told the 15-member Security Council, using the acronym for the deal’s formal name, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

U.S. allies warn that an increase in tensions could accidentally lead to war.

Iran and world powers including the United States who struck the nuclear pact needed to find a way back into talks, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Wednesday.

“I believe the escalation, sanctions on top of sanctions, provocations, the military build-up, is extremely dangerous because it could ignite the region, it could lead to over-reactions,” he told Japanese broadcaster NHK before a G20 summit in Osaka.

“When confidence is lost, you need little gestures to reduce tensions.”

Although the United States and Iran both say they do not want war, last week’s aborted U.S. strikes have been followed by menacing rhetoric on both sides. On Tuesday Trump threatened the “obliteration” of parts of Iran if it struck U.S. interests. President Hassan Rouhani, who normally presents Tehran’s mild-mannered face, called White House policy “mentally retarded.”

The standoff creates a challenge for Washington which, after quitting the nuclear deal against the advice of European allies, is now seeking their support to force Iran to comply with it.

Over the past few weeks Iran has set a number of deadlines for European countries to protect its economy from the impact of U.S. sanctions or see Tehran reduce compliance with the deal.

A spokesman for Iran’s Atomic Energy Organisation said that one of those deadlines would expire on Thursday, with Iran potentially exceeding a limit imposed under the deal to keep its stockpile of enriched uranium below 300 kg.

The IRIB news agency quoted spokesman Behrouz Kamalvindi as saying that after the deadline Iran would speed up its rate of producing the material.

Another threshold bars Iran from enriching uranium to a purity beyond 3.67 percent fissile material. It has set a deadline of July 7 after which it could also breach that.

European nations have tried to save the deal by maintaining some of its economic benefits despite U.S. sanctions. So far they have failed, with Iran largely shut from oil markets and all major European companies cancelling plans to invest.

Senior British, French, German and U.S. diplomats meet in Paris on Thursday, and senior officials from the six nations still in the deal gather in Vienna on Friday for talks that may explore whether the deal can be salvaged through diplomacy.

Iran says it would be Washington’s fault if it exceeds the 300 kg stockpile threshold. The 2015 deal allows Iran to sell excess uranium abroad to keep its stockpile below the limit, but such sales have been blocked by U.S. sanctions.

Donald Trump Raises $36 Million Ahead of Democrat Debates

KYLE MORRIS26 Jun 2019

President Donald Trump has raised $36 million since announcing last week he would seek reelection, just ahead of the 2020 Democrat Primary debates.

President Trump’s seven-day total dominates the $18 million raised by Democrat presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in the first quarter of fundraising.

A crowd of 225 attended and supported Trump’s joint fundraising committee at an event Tuesday at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, where the president raised approximately $6 million. Trump’s Tuesday night total fell just short of surpassing the $6.3 million that former Vice President Joe Biden raised on his first campaigning day for the Democrat presidential nomination.

Trump’s committee, called Trump Victory, raises and distributes money to both the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee.

President Trump’s campaign and his joint fundraising groups have more than $40 million on hand, a stark contrast from Sanders, who has $22 million, the most cash on hand of all Democrat presidential candidates.

Certain political strategists have stated that Democrat candidates will be forced to turn to big donors to keep up with Trump’s fundraising efforts.

“They’ll try to avoid it at first. But when it comes to the presidency, you need every dollar. If they don’t, they’re doing themselves a disservice,” said Matt Gorman, former communications director for the National Republican Congressional Committee.

According to the latest data, the Republican National Committee has more than $37 million cash on hand while the Democratic National Committee has a little more than $8 million, with a debt of nearly $6 million.

5 things to watch in the Democratic debates

MIAMI — Twenty Democrats have arrived here for two nights of heated debate over who is best suited to be the party’s presidential nominee and take on President Trump in 2020.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) will be the main attraction on Wednesday night, with former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg sharing the stage on Thursday night.

Here are five things to watch for:

A Biden pile-on is coming

Biden has been the clear front-runner in the race since officially announcing his candidacy in April.

Now, the former vice president’s rivals will have a chance to cut him down in front of a national audience of millions.

“He can’t let his critics walk all over him,” said one longtime Biden ally. “He needs to go on offense and play defense at the same time.”

Can Biden stay above the fray? In recent debate sessions, Biden has focused on his own candidacy and why he’s the best choice to address the nation’s challenges and beat Trump. The famously loquacious Biden will have limited time to make that case, something that’s proven to be a challenge for him. Candidates will have only 60 seconds to respond to questions and 30 seconds for follow-ups.

Meanwhile, the former vice president has given his critics ample ammunition to come after him in recent weeks. Biden’s remarks about finding common ground with segregationist senators decades ago has caused a stir and is certain to be brought up, either by the moderators or the candidates themselves.

Sanders, who will be on stage with Biden, has signaled that he’ll make an issue out of Biden’s vote to authorize military action in Iraq, a criticism that he also leveled at presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016. And Sanders will look to cast Biden as beholden to corporate interests, highlighting his past support for the North American Free Trade Agreement and the credit card industry.

Harris, the former attorney general of California, has attacked Biden for supporting a 1994 crime bill that critics say led to the disproportionate incarceration of black people.

And 37-year-old Buttigieg will be on stage with Biden, 76, making the case that it’s time for new leadership and a generational change within the party.

An opportunity for Warren

The run-up to the first presidential debate has been a dream stretch for Warren.

The glowing media profiles are rolling in. Her poll numbers are up, and she’s caught, and in some cases, surpassed Sanders, who is her prime competition to be the party’s progressive standard-bearer. Warren’s flood of ambitious policy proposals has been a hit with liberals.

Warren will be the only candidate polling in double digits on the first night of the debate.

Her greatest competition for air time will be Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.) and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (Texas), neither of whom is setting the primary race on fire.

Some believe that Warren could suffer by not being on stage with the other top contenders.

But if Warren can command the stage as she has in recent town halls and campaign events, she’ll be in good shape to continue her upward trend into the next phase of the race.

“Warren has one of the easier debate strategies because what she’s been doing on the campaign trail is already working, so she just needs to keep doing that,” said Democratic strategist Eddie Vale. “A lot of people will be tuning in for the first time, so she just needs to keep telling her great policy ideas interwoven with her bio and personal stories like she has been on the trail.”

Can Sanders recapture his old magic?

That Warren has caught Sanders in the polls has been one of the big surprises of the 2020 Democratic primary race so far.

Sanders’s backers say they’re not alarmed and blame the media for overplaying his decline. Indeed, some Democrats interviewed by The Hill insist that Sanders’s supporters will come home to him once voters begin casting ballots. He already has infrastructure in place from 2016 to capitalize on his existing base of support.

Either way, the stakes for Sanders at this first debate are monumentally high, as he seeks to cut into Biden’s support with Warren breathing down his neck.

Sanders proved himself a worthy debater in 2016, and his blunt talk about Clinton’s corporate speeches and close ties to the establishment propelled his unlikely candidacy and signaled the arrival of the progressive left on the national stage.

Now Sanders must make the case that he wasn’t merely a candidate suited for that time and place, but that he’s best positioned to take on Trump in the election.

Larry Cohen, the chairman of Our Revolution, a group that backs Sanders, said the Vermont senator is the strongest candidate for rural voters and unaffiliated voters “and he needs to make that clear” in the debate.

“The environment, opposing big money politics and ‘Medicare for All’ are all key for those voters,” Cohen said. “These voters will be the path to beating Trump.”

Trump looms over the Democratic field

The president is thinking about live-tweeting the Democratic debate, but his specter will hang over the field in more ways than that.

Democratic voters say the most important quality in a candidate is their ability to defeat Trump.

Right now, Biden and Sanders poll the best against Trump in head-to-head match-ups, but the other candidates will be pressing their case as to why they should be the one given a chance to take the president down.

There are some fears among liberals that this field of candidates is too boring and won’t be able to match Trump’s energy. There have been criticisms that the contenders have allowed Trump to set the political agenda.

Voters will get an idea about what kind of star wattage these Democrats have when the TV ratings come in for the debates being hosted on NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo.

Is national enthusiasm around the field as high as it was in 2015, when 24 million people tuned in to the first GOP presidential debate? Or is the primary race at this point mostly of interest to Washington insiders and those who are obsessed with politics?

Long shots look for a moment

Of the 20 candidates who will debate over the two nights in Miami, 15 of them will be fighting for relevancy.

There is a clear top tier of Biden, Sanders, Warren, Harris and Buttigieg, although Buttigieg and Harris will be looking to reset their campaigns, having plateaued after high-flying starts.

The rest of the contenders are desperate for a standout moment that sets their candidacies on a new trajectory.

Having that many wild cards injects a level of volatility into the debate that could be a game changer for some low-polling candidate.

“A lot of these candidates have nothing to lose so they’ll be trying to land any punch, even if it’s a low blow,” said one Democratic strategist. “Anything for a cable TV moment.”
