AP: More Than Half of Democrat Field In ‘Danger’ Of Getting Dropped From Debates

Published

on

The Associated Press reports Monday that more than half of the Democrat candidates in the 2020 presidential race are in “real danger” of not making the cut for upcoming debates.

AP reports: “Of the 20 candidates who qualified for the first round of debates in June and July, just six are sure to appear in the September-October round, when the Democratic National Committee requires participants to hit 2% in multiple polls and 130,000 individual donors. Though many campaigns are worried, DNC Chairman Tom Perez has resisted pressure to relax the requirements.”

In a crowded primary, getting dropped from the debates means certain existential destruction.

Cory Booker is not happy, with AP reporting: “Booker noted in a weekend fundraising message that he’s more than 30,000 donors away from the threshold. His campaign insists he will hit polling and fundraising marks, but his allies are concerned by what they see as an inherent bias among online donors who traditionally skew white…Steve Phillips, an African American donor, activist and civil rights lawyer, said the fundraising requirements are unfair to black voters.”

The oncoming “cut” might explain why Eric Swalwell — best known for threatening to nuclear bomb the American people on Twitter — kissed up to Biden in the debate, praising him for talking about carrying a “torch” when Swalwell was only a kid and Biden was already a political candidate. Swalwell did not mention that Biden stole the “torch” bit from John F. Kennedy.

So far, the Democrat debates have revealed deep disdain for Joe Biden and media support for Kamala Harris.

With Robert Francis  “Beto” O’Rourke foundering, the only two candidates who are gaining real grassroots or digitally insurgent support are Mayor Pete Buttigieg and tech businessman Andrew Yang, who claimed in the debate that he is not running on a right or left agenda — which might explain why he got the least speaking time of anyone on the second night stage. NBC also got into a public fight with Yang when he accused the network of cutting his microphone at opportune moments.

Buttigieg is being handled by savvy outsider strategist Lis Smith, who worked for Martin O’Malley during the rigged 2016 Democratic primary, while Yang is a hotshot on the web with his “Yang Gang,” which carried him to victory in the Drudge poll after the debate.

Berkeley Thug Arrested, Jailed After Hate Crime Threats Targeting Asians

Another white nationalist crime?

Published

A Berkeley, California man with an extensive criminal history has been arrested and jailed after threatening Asians online. Reginald Jackson was jailed for violating terms of his parole after a judge learned of online threats the repeat felon leveled towards members of the Asian community.

I’m gone blow a Asian done today

Like I said I’m in the town looking for an Asian to rob

Jackson has been previously convicted of attempted robbery as a minor, assault with a deadly weapon, obstruction of a police officer, and multiple counts of possessing weapons as a felon.

A judge ordered Jackson to be jailed on a parole violation with a bond of $190,000, citing “incredible concern” with the frequency of his arrests on Tuesday. It’s unclear if Jackson, who the Oakland Police Department has identified as a gang member, will face criminal charges related to his violent threats leveled against Asians online.

Jackson’s arrest comes as members of the Asian community are drawing attention to a slew of violent crimes targeting Asians in California and across the country. In spite of video evidence revealing that some of the prominent crimes in question have been committed by blacks, protest movements in response to the crimes have blamed supposed “white nationalists” for the crimes. A left-wing protest in New York City blamed “white supremacy” for the hate crimes, seemingly looking the other way at the dynamics behind the incidents.

There’s reason to believe that the crimes in question have been enabled by soft-on-crime practices utilized in California and New York, where repeat offenders are often released from the criminal justice system with a slap on the wrist. If members of the community continue to blame fictitious bogeymen for their occurrences, it’s likely the racially charged hate crimes will continue.
