Does Joe Biden Excite Anybody But Wealthy Donors?

Does Joe Biden Excite Anybody But Wealthy Donors?Last week, I attended Joe Biden’s first rally in California since he launched his presidential campaign more than six months ago. It was revealing. The Biden for President campaign had been using social media and its email list in the Los Angeles area to urge attendance. Under sunny skies, near abundant free parking, the outdoor rally on the campus of LA’s Trade-Technical College offered a chance to hear the man widely heralded as the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination. No more than 500 people showed up. Admittedly, as an active Bernie Sanders supporter, I didn’t have high expectations. But what struck me about the rally went beyond the dismal turnout and the stale rhetoric from a corporate Democrat posing as a champion of working people. Biden’s slow decline in polls is empirical, but what ails his campaign — as reflected in that…

Federal Indictment Says Deadly Houston Drug Raid Was Based on Lies From Start to Finish

Federal Indictment Says Deadly Houston Drug Raid Was Based on Lies From Start to FinishToday the Justice Department announced that three people have been indicted on federal charges because of their roles in a fraudulent no-knock drug raid that killed a middle-aged Houston couple on January 28. The indictment alleges not only that Gerald Goines, the narcotics officer who spearheaded the operation, lied in his search warrant affidavit, but that Patricia Ann Garcia, whose 911 calls prompted Goines’ investigation, lied when she implicated Dennis Tuttle and Rhogena Nicholas in drug dealing. The upshot is that the basis for the raid was a lie from start to finish. That realization contradicts Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo’s insistence that there were sound reasons, apart from Goines’ prevarications, to think Tuttle and Nicholas were selling heroin. Goines, who already faced state murder charges in connection with the raid that killed Tuttle and Nicholas,…
