Doug Schoen breaks down Democratic House primaries, says far-left has shown staying power

  • News source: Victor Garcia
  • Replies: 0
Recent primary victories by three key members of the "Squad" of far-left House Democrats are reminders that that wing of the party isn't going anywhere soon, Democratic pollster Doug Schoen told "The Ingraham Angle" Wednesday.

"'Representative [Ilhan] Omar [D-Minn.] was facing a very well-funded candidate, also a self-described progressive who outraised her ... in the second quarter and she won by, I think, over 15 points. Representative Tlaib [D-Mich.] won handily. And AOC was renominated with about three quarters of the vote," Schoen told guest...

US calls for shower rules to be eased after Trump hair complaints

  • News source: BBC News - World
  • Replies: 0
The US government has proposed changing the definition of a showerhead to allow increased water flow, following complaints from President Donald Trump about his hair routine.

Under a 1992 law, showerheads in the US are not allowed to produce more than 2.5 gallons (9.5l) of water per minute.

The Trump administration wants this limit to apply to each nozzle, rather than the overall fixture.

Consumer and conservation groups argue that it is wasteful and unnecessary.

The changes were proposed by the Department of Energy on Wednesday following...

China launches 'Clean Plate' campaign against food waste

  • News source: BBC News - World

China has stepped up measures to reduce food waste, after President Xi Jinping called the amount wasted "shocking and distressing".

The "Clean Plate Campaign" comes after Mr Xi highlighted that Covid-19 had "sounded the alarm" on food waste.

He added that China had to "maintain a sense of crisis about food security".

It also comes after weeks of mass flooding across southern China which left farms wrecked and ruined tons of produce.

However, Chinese state news agency the Global Times said these factors would not lead to a food crisis, but that...

China's Tencent downplays Trump's WeChat app ban

Tencent has played down Donald Trump's ban on its WeChat app, believing it will only affect its US operations.

The tech giant runs an equivalent messaging platform in China called Weixin which it hopes will be unaffected.

The bigger fallout may be Apple's sales in China if its iPhones aren't allowed to download Chinese messaging apps.

WeChat has more than one billion users worldwide but says the US only accounts for 2% of its revenue.

Last Friday, US President Donald Trump ordered US firms to stop doing business with both WeChat and TikTok within...

Teachers unions have shown themselves as being more concerned with political agendas and posturing than offering students a fulfilling learning experience, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos told "The Ingraham Angle" Wednesday.

DeVos told guest host Mike Huckabee that she was glad to see Democratic Govs. Phil Murphy of New Jersey and Andrew Cuomo of New York support reopening schools this fall, and said that it is imperative for families "not to be held captive to other people's fears or agendas."

Presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris' handling of cases involving alleged child sex abuse by Catholic priests while she was San Francisco District Attorney should receive more scrutiny, investigative journalist and author Peter Schweizer told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Wednesday.

Schweizer told host Tucker Carlson that when Harris took office in 2004, her predecessor, Democrat Terence Hallinan, left her with "hundreds of pages" of internal Catholic Church documents that included names of 40 accused clergy.

Time – even as short as one minute -- is what you make of it, U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared to be saying Wednesday evening.

The New York Democrat reacted on Twitter to reports that she’ll get just 60 seconds to speak when she participates next week in the Democratic Party’s mostly online national convention.

Ocasio-Cortez quoted from “God’s Minute,” by the late civil rights leader Dr. Benjamin E. Mays, whose poem was a commentary on the brevity of life.

“I only have a minute. Sixty seconds in it. Forced upon me, I did not choose it...

Comer told Fox News Wednesday in a statement that the Hatch Act does not prevent Trump's use of the venue. He said that will likely not stop Democrats who "continue to deflect, deter and undermine every lawful action" by the president.

“Truth be told, Democrats should be comforted knowing that the President can deliver his acceptance speech...

New Zealand has reported 14 new Covid-19 cases a day after its biggest city, Auckland, went back into lockdown.

The detection of four new infected family members earlier this week shocked a country that had recorded no locally transmitted cases for more than three months.

Of the new cases, 13 have been linked back to this family, while one is an overseas arrival who was in quarantine.

A three-day lockdown was imposed in Auckland on Wednesday.

Former Vice President Joe Biden's son wasn't unfairly targeted by Republicans, but rather brought scrutiny on himself by serving on the board of Burisma Holdings in a conflict of interest, Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., argued on "The Story" Wednesday.

"We didn't target the Bidens," Johnson told host Martha MacCallum. "We were actually looking at potential DNC involvement corrupting some of the agencies in the Obama Administration."
