Much has been made of Joe Biden’s public “pivot to the left” in recent weeks, from calling for a stimulus “a hell of a lot bigger” than $3 trillion to seating Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive populists on major policy committees. But while Biden seems sincere about bringing progressives into the fold for November, he remains the candidate who told high-dollar donors he “may not want to demonize anybody who has made money.”
Back-to-back Bloomberg reports showed that side of Biden recently. First, a survey of Wall Street donors found that far from worrying about their hold on Biden, banksters are giddily picking out which executive branch jobs they want for themselves and their friends. Then on Thursday, Biden’s team shut out reporters from hearing questions at a virtual Wall Street fundraiser, a first for the campaign.
The presumptive Democratic Party’s presidential candidate Joe Biden has not taken an anti-annexation stance that would be strong enough to halt the pending Israeli annexation of portions of the West Bank, PLO Ambassador to the UK Husam Zomlot said.
“I do not see a US partner arriving now that is capable of stopping [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu,” Zomlot said during a web event late Tuesday night held by the Israeli Policy Forum, which is opposed to annexation.
Rose McGowan took to Twitter on Sunday to slam a New York Times journalist over questions the reporter allegedly sent Joe Biden's accuser, Tara Reade.
The actress accused Lisa Lerer - who is also a political analyst for CNN - and the publication of 'twisting' the public's mind by asking a series of questions that ranged in topic and covered several moments in Reade's life.
'New York Times 'journalist' sent these questions to Joe Biden's accuser, Tara Reade,' McGowan said in tweet. 'The public needs to see how @llerer and the #NYT plan on twisting their minds. Now you can all see their tactics & how far they will go.'
George Floyd's death in police custody is renewing criticism of Sen. Amy Klobuchar's (D-Minn.) prosecutorial record.
Before she became a senator and a top contender for former Vice President Joe Biden's vice presidential spot, Klobuchar spent eight years as the Hennepin County attorney, in charge of prosecution for Minneapolis. And while in that position, Klobuchar declined to prosecute multiple police officers cited for excessive force, and did not prosecute the officer who kneeled on Floyd's neck as he protested, The Guardian reports.
No wonder Biden is considering her for the VP slot.
