Jennifer Lawrence: I’m really now concerned about “nonpartisan stuff”

And by “activism,” I’m sure she means pushing for progressives, as based upon her past comments:

From Yahoo (via Cosmopolitan): Jennifer Lawrence is making a big change – over the next year, the multi award-winning actress won’t be working on any new movies. Instead, Lawrence plans to focus on activism, and encouraging young people to become more engaged with politics.

In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, while promoting her latest movie Red Sparrow, Lawrence said, “I’m going to take the next year off. I’m going to be working with this organization as a part of Represent.Us… trying to get young people engaged politically on a local level.”

As for the focus of her work, Lawrence elaborated, “It’s just anti-corruption, and stuff trying to pass state by state laws that can help prevent corruption, fix our democracy.”

In January, Lawrence paid a visit to Ohio’s Cleveland Heights High School to discuss corruption in politics, on behalf of Represent.Us. Of Lawrence’s visit, one student told E! News, “It makes a big difference when people who are just 10 years older than us come to talk about political issues. When she said, ‘This is your time,’ that really made me think.”

As well as meeting with students, Lawrence was active in the Women’s March last month, and posted on Facebook her support for women’s rights, equal pay, DACA, and CHIP: “I stand in solidarity for Women’s rightsEqual payDACACHIP. Posted by Jennifer Lawrence on Saturday, January 20, 2018.”

FYI: Jennifer Lawrence is a board member of Represent.Us.

According to Wikipedia, Represent.Us is “a nonpartisan, non-profit organization founded in November, 2012 whose stated mission is “to pass tough anti-corruption laws in cities and states across America, and end the legalized corruption that has come to define modern politics.

Represent.Us places a heavy emphasis on grassroots organizing, employing a staff of organizers to help manage a national network of volunteers and volunteer-led chapters. The organization also relies on a large social media following through platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, and Reddit to draw attention to its public education and advocacy campaigns.

Represent.Us is a nonpartisan organization with a board, staff, and membership composed of liberals, conservatives, and independents. The organization does not endorse or oppose political candidates in an effort to maintain a nonpartisan stance.

The founder of Represent.Us is Josh Silver, a graduate of The Evergreen State College and former CEO and president of Free Press.

Major donors to Represent.Us include the following (see full list here):

Represent.Us is “nonpartisan?” Yeah, riiiiiiiight.

John “I served in Vietnam” Kerry: “I might challenge Trump in 2020”

Kerry & Hanoi Jane

Go for it, Lurch.

From NY Post: Ex-Secretary of State John Kerry has confided that he may make a second bid for the White House — as he urged Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to resist President Trump, according to a report.

“[Abbas] should stay strong in his spirit and play for time — that he should not break down and not capitulate to Trump’s demands,” Kerry told an Abbas confidant, according to the Hebrew daily Ma’ariv.

Kerry also suggested during his London confab with Hussein Agha, the Palestinian Authority president’s close associate, that the PA formulate its own peace proposal.

“Maybe it is time for the Palestinians to define their peace principles and present a positive plan,” he said, adding that Abbas should show Trump that he will “not break and will not yield” to his demands.

Kerry promised to use all his contacts and abilities to build support for a plan pitched by the Palestinians.

He asked Abbas, through Agha, not to attack the Trump administration, but to concentrate on personal attacks on Trump, who Kerry said was directly responsible for the stalled peace process.

In the report about the conversation, Agha said Kerry appears to be “crazy about things,” very energetic and eager to help realize the dream of peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

Kerry said that even fellow Republicans do not know what to do with the erratic Trump — and that patience was needed to get through this turbulent period. According to the report, Kerry also used derogatory terms when referring to Trump.

The 2004 Democratic presidential nominee has continued to meet with Agha, who served as an intermediary for Kerry and Abbas during Kerry’s four years as top diplomat.

Kerry also told the Lebanese scholar that Trump – whose administration is under investigation for possible collusion with Russia — will likely not be in the White House much longer.

If Trump survives his first term, the Massachusetts Democrat suggested he may seek to unseat him in 2020.

Last September, Kerry refused to rule out the possibility of running in 2020, telling MSNBC that he did not “have any plans right now” to run for president.

If elected, Kerry would be 77 on inauguration day in 2021 – making him the oldest president in US history. The current record is held by Trump, who was 70 when he was sworn in last year.

Agha is a senior associate member of St. Antony’s College, Oxford, and co-author of “A Framework for a Palestinian National Security Doctrine.”

He maintains an extensive network of contacts with many influential Israelis. Agha declined to respond to the report. The Israeli paper could not reach Kerry for comment.

Rasmussen poll for 2020 POTUS: Oprah 48% Trump 38%

After Oprah Winfrey’s speech at last Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, chatter of her possible running for the presidency in 2020 reached feverish pitch, fueled by Fake News CNN’s report that two “close friends” of Oprah’s said she is “actively thinking” about a presidential run.

So Rasmussen Reports conducted a survey of 1,000 Likely Voters on January 8-9, 2018, with a 3% margin of sampling error. The results, released yesterday:

  • 48% would vote for Oprah in 2020.
  • 38% would vote for Trump.
  • 14% are undecided.

The Rasmussen poll also found that Oprah has a 55% general favorability, and 27% “very favorable” rating, which is consistent with a March 2017 Quinnipiac poll that found Oprah with a 52% favorability rating among Americans in general, and a massive 72% favorability rating with Democrats. However, 69% of those polled by Quinnipiac said she shouldn’t run for president.

Oprah Winfrey on old racist people: “And they just have to die”

Oprah gave a speech at the Golden Globes award show on Sunday night as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille award.

Now every libtard is giddy with excitement, thinking that this was the platform for her 2020 presidential election run.

Back in 2014, Oprah gave an interview to the BBC in which she told the interviewer “that there needed to be some demographic pruning to stamp out racism more fully.“There are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die,” she said.”

So presidential!

Not from The Onion: Biden would win against Trump in 2020, ex-DNC chair says

Joe Biden

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

From NY Post: A former chairman of the Democratic National Committee said “superstar” Joe Biden would “definitely” win if he ran against President Trump in the 2020 election.

“There’s only one person I can say who will definitely win the election and has a superstar appeal in almost every state in the union, and that’s Vice President Biden,” Ed Rendell told John Catsimatidis on his 970 AM radio show in an interview that aired Sunday. “Of course, people say he’s too old. But he’s only a year and a half older than President Trump, and he’s in infinitely better shape. I don’t think age would be a factor in a Biden-Trump election.”

Biden, 75, has said he thought he would have beaten Hillary Clinton if he had run in the 2016 Democratic primary election still hasn’t closed the door on opposing Trump, who is 71. Biden, a former senator from Delaware, said he was prepared to launch a campaign in 2016 until his son Beau died of brain cancer.

Rendell, the former governor of Pennsylvania, said Democrats could run against the unpopular programs backed by Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress, but warned against veering too far to the left.

“What I think the nation is looking for … is not left or right necessarily, but actual real answers to the problems and challenges that face us,” he said. “If I were still party chairman, I’d be on the air right now telling people how badly the Republican tax plan screws the middle class. How 83 percent of the benefits go to the top one percent.”

He added that the Democrats should come up with an alternate tax plan that benefits the middle class.Rendell also predicted that GOP plans for infrastructure spending and immigration reform, top legislative priorities for 2018, would end in disaster.

Republicans won’t “get anything done in infrastructure … I don’t believe they have anything close to a consensus to get anything meaningful done on immigration,” he said. “I think they’re going to have a record of having done nothing except this tax bill, which is extraordinarily unpopular. … It’s a mess.”

#NeverTrumper Senator Jeff Flake won’t rule out 2020 run against Trump

Go for it you RINO. And keep trashing us republican voters. Sounds like a winning strategy to get Trump re-elected!

From NY Post: WASHINGTON – Retiring Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake​ on Sunday wouldn’t​ rule out a 2020 run against President Trump, saying the commander-in-chief is “inviting” a challenger with his politics of division and narrow appeal to a diminishing base of older, white men.

“I don’t rule anything out, but it’s not in my plans,” Flake​, a Republican,​ told ABC’s “This Week.”

“But I do believe if the president is running for reelection, if he continues on the path that he’s on, that that’s going to leave a huge swath of voters looking for something else.”

Flake said he expects Trump could have challengers from multiple sides: Democrat, independent and even from his own Republican Party. “I think he’s inviting that,” Flake said.

Flake has often clashed with Trump over his incendiary tweets, immigration policies and endorsements.

He most recently wrote a campaign contribution check to Alabama Democrat Doug Jones after Trump backed accused child molester Roy Moore for ​the ​Senate.

Flake said he worries the GOP und​er ​Trump represents “spasms of a dying party.”

“By and large, we’re appealing to older white men and there are just a limited number of them, and anger and resentment are not a governing philosophy,” Flake said.

Facing a tough reelection in Arizona and public rebukes from Trump, Flake announced his retirement in a stunning Senate floor speech Oct. 24 that was viewed as a condemnation of Trump’s leadership. “I will not be complicit,” he said.

If Democrats nominate someone like far-left Sens. Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders in 2020 to challenge Trump, Americans likely will be looking for third option, Flake said. “That leaves a huge swath of voters in the middle, that may be looking for something else,” he said.
