Senator Michael Bennet started a presidential campaign in 2019 but he quit after losing the New Hampshire Primary on February 11th 2020.Due to the lack of appeal in an already crowded group of people running for nomination.
New York City has always been a fascinating place: it is a melting pot that is beaming all sorts of culture and diversity. I lived my entire life on the east coast: I was born in Florida, lived in Long Island throughout kindergarten and first grade, moved to Philadelphia for the rest of my childhood, lived in Connecticut throughout high school, went to community college in South Jersey, and returned to Connecticut. Throughout my life, I have constantly visited this amazing city: I would ride the train from Milford to Grand Central and take the ferry to Hoboken, NJ to visit my father during my High School years, I would visit my aunt when she lived in Queens, I went to New York Comic Con in 2008 and got to (along with many others) shake hands with the late Stan Lee, and I have been to great eats such as "Jekyll & Hyde" and "Carmine's". New York City has also been a special place in the heart of my family: My mother was born in Manhattan, My late Grandfather was a preacher at a church in the Bronx, & My aunt and uncle teach in the city as well.
Congresswomen Liz Cheney on Tuesday announced that she would vote to impeach Donald j trump for a historical second time in his presidency and I endorse her for doing this and standing up to her party president.
When someone desires to broker peace in a situation, they are said to be extending an olive branch to the person they are at odds with. Now, with only 5 days left until the Presidential Inauguration, Vice President Mike Pence has made a last-minute choice to take the high road and extend an olive branch of sorts to his successor. On Friday, he called VP elect Kamala Harris to congratulate her and offer his assistance during the transition. Pence has also stated that he will be on hand when Joe Biden takes the oath of office on January 20.
My first exposure to American politics was when I was only 10 years old. It was the year 2004, four years after my parents split and three years after the monumental tragedy that was 9/11. In an effort to both get closer to and be taken seriously by my father, I echoed his support of former President George W. Bush. My father is very much a product of the era of the late Ronald Regan and to most people of the baby boomer generation, Reagan was seen as a political Messiah.
Donald J Trump spent practically the entirety of Barak Obama’s presidency pushing the lie that the first man of color to lead the free world was not born in the United States. To this day there are Trump supporters who say that Obama is a Muslim and was not qualified for the highest office in the land. Barak Obama was born in Hawaii and even if he were Muslim, religious beliefs should have no bearing on the ability to carry out the job of president. In spite of the constant barrage of attacks coming from the man who succeeded him, Obama remained a gentleman.
The vitriol that Hilary Clinton predicted would rule the Trump administration continues to be alive and well. The entire nation is troubled because number 45 ordered his supporters to storm the White House and they did. Senators and Congress members were ushered into hiding and feared for their lives as windows were broken and doors were being pounded up in n attempt to get in. Offices were trashed and a Confederate Flag was held by one trespasser inside the White House. The chaos is having an unsettling effect on the nation and now, Elaine Chao, the wife of Majority leader Mitch McConnell just turned in her resignation.
Thomas Jonathan (Jon) Ossoff made Georgia history alongside Raphael Warnock as the duo became the first Jewish and African American to be elected to the US Senate. Ossoff was born on February 16, 1986, and before his election, he was an investigative journalist and a documentary film producer. The two Georgia races attracted significant attention nationwide as they decide who will control the Senate in the 117th Congress. With Warnock and Ossoff's victories, Democrats and Republicans now each will hold 50 Senate seats. The tie-breaking vote will be cast by Vice President-elect Kamala Harris has the tie-breaking vote which will give Democrats a majority.
Although Donald Trump had convinced a sizable group of GOP lawmakers to join him in his ill-fated and unsubstantiated claims that election fraud was responsible for President-elect Joe Biden’s landslide win in November’s election, the deadly violence he incited on Capitol Hill this week caused many of his allies to abandon him at the last minute.
After president-elect Joe Biden called for the US President Donald Trump to go on national TV and denounce the attacks on the Capitol and Senate grounds, Trump responded by a one-minute video on Twitter. Twitter immediately disabled the reply, retweet, and sharing options for the video.
The news headlines across America are screaming that Raphael Warnock is the winner in the Georgia Senate race. He has made history as the first African American ever in that position in a former Confederate state. Warnock's win signifies that those currently in the White House need to get with the program because US citizens desire a change and more desire change is coming. The Georgia voters have opted for something different and this might very well turn the tide in other areas of this nation. There was a season when Trumpism seemed to be the norm and 70 million voters indicated that they would be happy with 4 more years, Georgians, however, desired, like the 80 million who voted for Joe Biden, to leave all of that in the past.
When Josh Hawley announced that he planned to challenge Joe Biden’s victory on the Senate floor on January 6th, It was the first time many Americans were aware of Missouri’s junior Senator. He even got ahead of long time liberal boogieman Ted Cruz in his bid to undermine democracy to boost his own profile. As a resident of Missouri I can tell you, this is nothing new, he’s always been awful.
