Fox News: David Bossie: Desperate Dems face dilemma: Embrace flawed Bloomberg and his billions, or seek to destroy him?

The 2020 Democratic presidential primary contest is a slow-motion train wreck.  After almost a year of campaigning – complete with debates, town halls, hundreds of millions of dollars spent on advertising, and a biased media promoting their out-of-the-mainstream agenda – the crew of far-left Democratic presidential candidates remains stuck in mediocrity, with no one able to break out of the pack.

It’s become abundantly clear why the do-nothing Democrats in Congress – led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California – have been so focused on impeachment hoaxes and never-ending partisan investigations of President Trump. The truth is that they don’t want the public to pay attention to their looming electoral disaster.

The muddled results for Democrats from the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary earlier this month have only made matters worse. In fact, the situation has gone from bad to horrific. The winners of the first two Democratic nominating contests are Pete Buttigieg, a 38-year old former mayor of a small Indiana city of 100,000, and Sen. Bernie Sanders, a socialist career politician from Vermont – a state with a population of about 620,000.

Buttigieg and Sanders won by slim and unconvincing margins. The Democratic Party’s earlier supposed front-runner – former Vice President Joe Biden – can barely string together a coherent sentence and has been exposed as a corrupt swamp creature. The fading campaign of Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts is taking on water and sinking fast. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, the surprise third-place finisher in New Hampshire, is a totally unspectacular backbencher.

Due to this incredibly weak field of candidates, establishment Democrats are frantically trying to get their primary voters to give former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg a serious look. Mini Mike – as President Trump has aptly nicknamed him – represents everything the left despises. Bloomberg is a billionaire – 60 times over – who is trying to buy the 2020 election and drown out the voices of everyday Americans. Bloomberg governed as “Mayor Stop and Frisk” and even voiced support for throwing kids up against the wall to find out if they’re carrying guns.

Fox News: David Bossie: Socialist Sanders’ NH victory shows left-wing radicals are pushing Dems in dangerous direction

Results of Tuesday’s New Hampshire Democratic primary provide little clarity in the crowded race for the party’s presidential nomination that is being dominated by socialism, chaos and a pathetic field of left-wing candidates.

Fox News projected that career politician and socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont was the narrow winner of the primary. Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg came in a strong second, followed by Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota in third place.

Darkhorse candidates Andrew Yang and Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado dropped out of the race Tuesday night after poor performances in New Hampshire and in the Iowa caucuses last week, but nine Democrats remain in the nomination battle, preventing any one candidate from garnering a majority of the primary votes.

Sanders’ victory tells us he is gaining momentum among a small plurality of Democratic primary and caucus voters in the opening rounds of the competition to become the Democratic nominee who will run against President Trump in November.

With 86 percent of precincts reporting, Sanders had close to 26 percent of the vote in the New Hampshire Democratic primary – a far cry from the 60 percent he received when he defeated Hillary Clinton in the Granite State in 2016. Buttigieg had just over 24 percent and Klobuchar had almost 20 percent.

Fox News: David Bossie: Trump SOTU address showcases success of his America First policies

Under the leadership of President Trump, the state of our union is as strong as it has ever been – and the best is yet to come.

The president walked into the well of the U.S. House of Representatives Tuesday night for his third State of the Union address with great purpose and a message of hopeful optimism that America’s best days are still ahead of us. His speech was a showcase for American exceptionalism.

There are countless reasons for Americans to feel optimistic about the future, because we are better off today than we were four years ago. We’re in the midst of the great American comeback – but the Democrats and their allies in the anti-Trump media can’t come to grips with that reality.

The stark contrast between President Trump’s extraordinarily successful tenure in office and the agenda-less Democratic Party’s utter disarray – from the impeachment circus to the Iowa caucus fiasco – is undeniable.

Trump and the Republicans are thriving, while the entire Democratic establishment is falling apart at the seams. Independent voters are taking note.

Fox News: David Bossie: In Trump impeachment trial, Senate Republicans should block testimony by Bolton and others

President Trump’s defense team in his Senate impeachment trial rested its case Tuesday after a forceful, convincing and professional presentation of the facts that showed the president committed no crime and did absolutely nothing rising to the level of an impeachable offense.

The American people know this entire pathetic impeachment undertaking is a political attack by radicalized Democrats out to meddle in the 2020 election.

Democrats know they have no answer for President Trump’s success story and the great American comeback we’ve seen unfold over the past three years because of his leadership. So House Democrats impeached him and put him on trial in the Senate to hurt his reelection chances.

Facts are stubborn things and for four months the facts of this partisan impeachment hoax haven’t changed.

First and foremost, in the spirit of transparency, the president did something no other chief executive would have done. He proactively released the transcript of his July 25 routine phone call with the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that showed no quid pro quo was discussed.

Fox News: David Bossie: Supreme Court 'Citizens United' decision still protects the First Amendment 10 years later

On the 10th anniversary of Citizens United’s landmark Supreme Court victory for free speech, its incredible impact and legacy has come into focus. At its core, the Citizens United decision encourages more participation in America’s political process.

Much to the dismay of the left, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission was a case about free speech and whether the First Amendment protected the American people from government attempts to limit speech. Nothing more, nothing less.

The origins of the case begin with Citizens United’s ability to produce a film and run advertisements for a film critical of Hillary Clinton. At that time, the McCain-Feingold campaign finance regime would have jailed me for doing just that — a fact that the left purposefully omits from their flawed arguments against the Supreme Court’s opinion.

In 2004, I recognized that liberal activist and filmmaker Michael Moore had produced a documentary, "Fahrenheit 9/11," a film highly critical of then- President George W. Bush. While the film had a huge impact on the campaign, it was Moore’s television trailers supporting the film — produced with corporate Hollywood money — that truly affected the Bush reelection effort.

I simply asked the Federal Election Commission if I could do what Michael Moore was doing. The FEC told me "no." If I moved forward anyway, I could face five years in jail for each count, as well as tens of thousands in fines. To this day, I still can’t believe that our federal government was going to jail me for making a movie and running advertisements for a film.

Wash Times: Bossie/Boos: Revisiting the landmark Citizens United v. FEC decision

In the 10 years since the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its landmark decision in Citizens United v. FEC, history has proven the ruling’s chief critics completely wrong about its impact on American democracy.

The ruling did not usher in an era of unrestrained corporate campaign spending that drowned out the voices of ordinary Americans. Instead, by opening up alternative funding sources, Citizens United and its progeny have helped our democracy to flourish by taking power from the establishment political elites and their news media cronies, and made it possible for outsider candidates, such as Donald Trump, to effectively compete for votes in the American political arena.

Before the ink even had a chance to dry, The New York Times, itself a corporation, fired off an editorial decrying the decision, saying it “thrust politics back to the robber-baron era of the 19th century.” President Barack Obama in his 2010 State of the Union address a few days later claimed the court’s ruling “will open the floodgates for special interests — including foreign corporations — to spend without limit in or elections.”

As our new film on Citizens United discusses, in the decade that has followed, none of this has come to pass. Yes, corporations may lawfully play a role in American elections, but their financial impact has been quite small compared to other funding sources.

A Report by the Committee for Economic Development of The Conference Board summed it up as follows: No major corporation has spent money independently in support of a candidate. Only two companies in 2014 and 10 in 2016 made independent expenditures from corporate funds, and these companies spent relatively miniscule amounts.

Even when it comes to the funding of so-called Super PACs, groups that can accept unlimited contributions from corporations as well as individuals, corporate funding amounted to just 5 percent of those groups’ receipts in 2014 and 6 percent in 2016. This is hardly the Genesis flood of corporate funding that the decision’s critics predicted.

Wash Times: David Bossie: Trump fights for American workers by delivering the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement

With the United States expected to sign a phase one trade deal with China this week President Trump has shown that he will continue to fight for American workers to create a strong economy that is empowering Made in America manufacturing. The passage in December of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) by the House of Representatives was a huge win for American workers and their families.

The Trump administration is working to create jobs, raise wages, help families and hit back at countries that don’t play by the rules of international trade. In recent times, unfairly priced and subsidized imports of fabricated structural steel from China, Canada and Mexico have decimated the fabricated structural steel industry, leading to job losses across America’s heartland. The fabricated structural steel industry creates employment for 115,000 Americans throughout the country, while supporting hundreds of thousands of indirect jobs.

These high-wage jobs, and the benefits they provide, support tens of thousands of hard-working Americans and their families. In the key states of Maine, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa, the fabricated structural steel industry directly employs over 18,000 Americans, and indirectly employs many thousands more. In Texas alone, more than 14,000 workers are directly employed by the fabricated structural steel industry.

Foreign countries should not be allowed to cheat the system at the expense of American workers and their loved ones. While past administrations failed to act on trade, the Trump administration is standing up for American workers after decades of having the deck stacked against them. Under Mr. Trump’s leadership, the tide has begun to turn. Unemployment has never been lower, wages are skyrocketing, and the working people of this country are winning once more. But despite our many victories, there is still much work to be done.

Foreign steel fabricators, aided by unfair subsidies, have been ramping up their production and flooding the U.S. market with tremendous amounts of cheap fabricated structural steel. The result is artificially deflated American fabricated structural steel prices, making it difficult for American fabricators to stay in business and employ workers.

Fox News: David Bossie: Pelosi’s impeachment hoax will soon end with Trump’s acquittal, followed by his reelection

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s partisan impeachment circus is finally headed to the Senate to meet its rightful doom.

Pelosi, D-Calif., compared her unpopular impeachment hoax Wednesday to Paul Revere’s famous ride in 1775. Senators have now been warned: The radicals are coming!

As Pelosi announced her intention to transmit the two pitifully weak articles of impeachment adopted by the House and appoint managers for the Senate trial of President Trump after a suspicious 28-day delay, you could tell by the looks on the faces of the unhinged House Democrats that their political ruse has run out of runway and things are about to get real.

Curiously, Pelosi appeared to tip her hand when she said that “voters in America should decide who our president is.” This was an odd statement given that it was made at a press conference about impeachment proceedings. Regardless, she’s right. President Trump will crush his Democratic opponent – whoever it is – less than 10 months from now.

Pelosi said of her decision-making process regarding which House Democrats to choose as impeachment managers that her “emphasis is on litigators.”

David Bossie: Trump Derangement Syndrome drives Dem opposition to president on Iran, impeachment and more

Since Donald Trump was elected president in November 2016, the Democrats’ strategy has been to oppose, resist and attack everything he says or does – regardless of how pathetic it makes them look. Look no further than the left’s reaction to the president’s order to eliminate Iranian general and terrorist Qassem Soleimani last week.

At a time when Americans should be rallying around their president and their flag to celebrate the world being a safer place because of Soleimani’s death, Democrats refuse to state the obvious.

The American people understand that killing terrorists is a good thing – something many Democrats used to agree with. But throughout the president’s first term, Trump Derangement Syndrome has ravaged the left at a disturbing pace and it’s showing no signs of letting up.

In the case of Trump, it’s clear the Democrats have dug themselves into a hole. Someone needs to tell them to stop digging.

Those on the left had an opportunity to say that the Soleimani strike was a sound decision, period. Instead, they doubled down. They decided to falsely accuse the president of overstepping his powers and claim he secretly wants to go to war with Iran. It’s insanity, plain and simple.

Fox News: David Bossie: Trump perseveres in 2019 — stands tall despite relentless attacks from Democrats and media

A lot can happen in a year and 2019 was no exception.

Nancy Pelosi became speaker of the House for the second time; there was a government shutdown; special counsel Robert Mueller’s two-year investigation came to an end; the Democrat presidential primary campaigns began; the American economy enjoyed historic prolonged vibrancy; anti-Trump Republicans like John Kasich and Jeb Bush started and ended their search for a primary challenger to run against the president, and President Trump was fraudulently impeached by unhinged partisans in the House of Representatives.

But through it all, President Donald Trump — the ultimate political outsider — continues to plow forward, never relenting in his focus of putting America First.

In the face of unprecedented attacks from the left — including a mainstream media that in 2019 was fully exposed as a vicious partner of Democrat political operatives — Trump perseveres. Facing an onslaught of fake news that would have brought other leaders to their knees, Trump stands tall heading into the fourth year of his presidency.

The year began with a government shutdown caused by congressional Democrats refusing to acknowledge the crisis at our Southern border. Undeterred, Trump demonstrated true presidential leadership by ordering billions in appropriated military funds to be used to construct the much-needed border wall.
