Furious Sarah Palin unloads on former pal Ted Cruz as a ‘half-term’ US senator with no achievements

Published

on

Sarah Palin, who has been credited with helping launch Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s national career by endorsing him in 2012 has had a change of heart since throwing her presidential endorsement to New York billionaire Donald Trump.

Writing on Facebook, the former half-term governor of Alaska took a slap at Cruz — who is shaping up to be Trump’s last standing rival for the nomination — by calling Cruz a “half-term” U.S. senator lacking in any semblance of legislative “success” since he traveled to Washington D.C.

In the course of her diatribe, she also described Cruz as a career politician while knocking him for calling Trump’s fans “low-information voters.”

“Calling GOP front-runner supporters ‘low information’ disengaged voters, Ted Cruz’s insinuation reeks of all the reasons America knows ‘the status quo has got to go,'” she wrote. “The arrogance of career politicians is something at which the rest of us chuckle, but Cruz’s latest dig strays from humorous into downright nasty.”

“Where’s information on any Cruz success whilst in his short, half-term U.S. Senate seat, proving his resume’s advantage over another career politicians’s lawyerly executive inexperience that includes never having created a single private sector job,” she continued before equating Cruz with President Barack Obama by adding, ” but boasting of his constitutional law teacher creds? (Remember America experimented with that resume before; how’d that work out for the country?)”

Palin also took a dig at former nominee Carly Fiorina for flip-flopping on Cruz when she bestowed her endorsement on the Texas senator this week.

“Info on consistency with his big endorsement this week, as Carly tells it like it is so very recently? ” Palin wrote, adding this quote from Fiorina: “Ted Cruz is just like any other politician. He says one thing in Manhattan, he says another thing in Iowa. He says whatever he needs to say to get elected, and then he’s going to do as he pleases. I think people are tired of a political class that promises much and delivers much of the same.”

Senator Elizabeth Warren leads Democrats in spirited first 2020 debate

Published

on

Ten Democrats clashed in the first debate of the 2020 presidential race Wednesday with Elizabeth Warren cementing her status as a top-tier candidate and several underdogs using the issue of immigration to clamor for the limelight.

The biggest American political debate since the 2016 presidential campaign is occurring over two nights in Miami, climaxing Thursday with former vice president Joe Biden squaring off against nine challengers, including number two candidate Bernie Sanders.

But Wednesday's first take was a spirited encounter between Democrats like ex-congressman Beto O'Rourke, Senator Cory Booker, former San Antonio mayor Julian Castro and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio on subjects as varied as health care, economic inequality, climate action, gun violence, Iran and immigration.

Here are 4 winners and 9 losers from the first 2020 Democratic primary debate

Published

on

With ten candidates on stage Wednesday, the opening debate of the 2020 Democratic primary in Miami was a packed mess. And this was only the first course in a two-part event — 10 more candidates will debate on the following night.

A crowded field makes it difficult to stand out, and that means that even after a big night like a debate, the most likely result is that not much changes. But the debate was still significant, giving candidates the chance to exceed, meet, or fall below expectations for their performances.

Here's a list — necessarily subjective, of course — of the people who came out on the top when the dust was settled, and those who came out on the bottom.

Here are 3 ways Julián Castro stood out in the first Democratic Debate

Published

on

There were many predictions going into the first Democratic debate on MSNBC, but no one predicted that Julián Castro would break out from the crowd.

Check out the top three ways Castro stood out from the crowd.

Immigration:

The former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development was the outright winner of the immigration section of the debate

It should "piss us all off," Castro said about the father and his little girl who were found face-down in the shores of the Rio Grande River this week. “It’s heartbreaking."

Castro is a second generation American who got into specifics on immigration policy, calling for an outright "Marshall Plan" style of action for Guatemala and Honduras. He joined with other Democrats calling for an end to President Donald Trump's family separation policy, but he then suggested ending the "metering" of legitimate asylum seekers.
