The Democratic Establishment Strikes Back

The Democratic Establishment Strikes BackThe opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of Townhall.com.
After 3 attempts, 32 years, and 5 primaries as a candidate, Joe Biden finally won his first set of delegates in his quest to be the Democratic Party’s nominee for president. Within hours, the powers that be in the liberal establishment saw their opening and pounced on the remaining candidates, applying pressure to get them to drop out and support Biden. 

With no clear path to the nomination for anyone, thanks largely to the screwed up way in which Democrats distribute their delegates proportionally, rather than fight, Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg took whatever they were offered as payoff and quit.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu succeeded in winning 60 seats for his bloc of right-wing and religious parties, one less than he needed for a majority in the Knesset in Monday’s election, according to exit polls on the three television networks.

Exit polls published by Channel 12 predict that the Likud Party stands at 37 seats while Blue and White is on 33 seats. The Joint List, according to the poll, has 14 seats. A total of 9 seats are predicted for Shas and 7 for UTJ, while another 7 seats are for Yamina. Otzma Yehudit will not pass the threshold. Labor-Gesher-Meretz are predicted to receive 7 seats, meaning the right-wing bloc stands at 60 seats altogether whilst the center-left stands at 40, with Yisrael Beytenu on 6.
Today is National Anthem Day

On September 14th, 1814, Francis Scott Key witnessed the bombardment of Fort McHenry during the War of 1812 and was moved to write a poem, that would later provide the lyrics to our nation’s anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner”. It was on this day, March 3rd, in 1931, that the song official became the National Anthem. God Bless and protect our men and women in uniform for without them we would not be the "land of the free and the home of the brave."
