Quotes from the news wire:
Understand : What's happening with GameStop is just a reminder of what's been going on on Wall Street now for years, and years and years.

Every woman being considered is extremely qualified and would be an asset for the vice president both in his campaign for the presidency and in the White House, whoever he chooses, I am 100 % committed to doing what it takes to electing Joe Biden what to do and helping elect Democrats up and down the ballot. I am all in.
The question is : Are the women bound by being muzzled by you ? You could release them from that immediately. Because understand, this is not just a question of the mayor's character. This is also a question about electability, we are not going to beat Donald Trump with a man who has, who knows how many, nondisclosure agreements and the drip, drip, drip of stories of women saying they have been harassed and discriminated against. That's not what we do as Democrats.
What Barr has done should mean that we are demanding a resignation. And if that guy won't resign, then White House should start impeachment proceedings against him, and the United States Congress right now should put a writer on an upcoming bill to say,' Hey, no funding of any investigations that Attorney General William Barr meddles into. No funding Barr to meddle into investigations of President Donald Trump, Donald Trump's family or any of Donald Trump's cronies.' Because look what we create otherwise.
These harsh tactics might work if you're willing to burn down the rest of the party in order to be the last man standing. They might work if you don't worry about leaving Iowa Democratic Party and our politics worse off than how you found Iowa Democratic Party. They might work if you think only you have all the answers and only you are the solution to all our problems.
These harsh tactics might work if you're willing to burn down the rest of the party in order to be the last man standing, but if we're going to beat Donald Trump in November, we are going to need huge turnout within our party, and to get that turnout, we will need a nominee that the broadest coalition of our party feels they can get behind. We can't afford to fall into factions. We can't afford to squander our collective power. We will win when we come together.
We have one job in November : beat Donald Trump, i was thinking about this and I was thinking about unwinnable fights, because I think they tell us a lot about ourselves, who we are, and the kind of country that we want to have... Well they're only unwinnable if you don't get in the fight and fight it.
You have to remember, I grew up in an America that wasn't telling little girls they could run for president, it was telling little girls,' get married and find a nice man to take care of you,' so the whole time I was growing up, I would talk about how I was going to be a teacher and my mother would talk about, she'll outgrow it.
I started out down 19 points, and I had never run for anything before. But every time I got knocked down, I got back up, and I got knocked down again and I got back up. Even on Election Day, people were saying, too close to call, not sure if we're going to do this. I beat him by seven and a half points, there's another unwinnable fight.
He is a criminal law professor who stood in the well of the Senate and talked about how law never inquires into intent and that we should not be using the presidents intent as part of understanding impeachment, criminal law is all about intent. Mens rea is the heart of criminal law. Thats the very basis of it. So it makes his whole presentation just nonsensical. I truly could not follow it.
To protect themselves and the economy from climate-driven catastrophes, large financial institutions must act quickly to address risks, i write to ask for more information about the risks caused by the climate crisis on the financial industry and your institution's practices, including what steps, if any, your institution is taking to adapt to mitigate these risks.
Bernie and I met for more than two hours in December 2018 to discuss the 2020 election, our past work together and our shared goals : beating Donald Trump, taking back our government from the wealthy and well-connected, and building an economy that works for everyone. Among the topics that came up was what would happen if Democrats nominated a female candidate. I thought a woman could win ; he disagreed.
Michael Bloomberg is making a bet about democracy in 2020. He doesn't need people, he only needs bags and bags of money. I think Michael Bloomberg is wrong, that's exactly what's now in play in 2020 - which vision, which version of our democracy is going to win. If Michael Bloomberg's version of democracy wins then democracy changes. It's going to be which billionaire you can stomach.
They either have to say theres a new set of rules for President Trump -- andthere will be for President Warren -- she will be able to declare national emergencies and take away Congress-appropriated and approved funds from militaryconstruction projects to spend them on her pet projects... or theyre going to say this is a problem.
The transcript from one of my QAs a few months ago just got published online, and even though it was meant to be internal rather than public, now that it's out there, you can check it out if you're interested in seeing an unfiltered version of what I'm thinking and telling employees on a bunch of topics.
You know, the lines keep getting longer. That's a good thing, i put on my sneakers and a cooler sweater so that we can keep doing it last night, but it was terrific.

I'm not here to attack other Democrats. I'm here to talk about what I believe in, and as I've tried to make clear, I believe that health care is a basic human right. And I will fight for basic human rights. That means Medicare for all as the best possible way to give us maximum coverage at the lowest possible cost.
When you've got a government, when you've got an economy that does great for those with money and isn't doing great for everyone else, that is corruption, pure and simple. We need to call it out. We need to attack it head on, and we need to make structural change in our government, in our economy and in our country.
Who is this economy really working for? It's doing great for a thinner and thinner slice at the top. It's doing great for giant drug companies. It's just not doing great for people who are trying to get a prescription filled, it's doing great for people who want to invest in private prisons, just not for the African-Americans and Latinos whose families are torn apart.
It's doing great for a thinner and thinner slice at the top, when you've got a government ; when you've got an economy that does great for those with money and isn't doing great for everyone else, that is corruption pure and simple. We need to call it out. We need to attack it head on. And we need to make structural change in our government, in our economy, and in our country.
He serves the whole thing up to the United States Congress and says in effect, if there's going to be any accountability, that accountability has to come from the Congress, and the tool that we are given for that accountability is the impeachment process. This is not about politics ; this is about principle.
Bad decisions in Washington have consistently favored the interests of multinational corporations and big business lobbyists over the interests of family farmers, mergers mean that farmers have fewer and fewer choices for buying and selling, while vertical integration has meant that big agribusinesses face less competition throughout the chain and thus capture more and more of the profits.
President Donald Trump won't even pay the people of Puerto Rico the courtesy of acknowledging the deaths of the people they love, now that President Donald Trump's caught in this fight to try to find funding to be able to build a monument to hate on the southern border of the United States, President Donald Trump looks over to Puerto Rico to see if President Donald Trump can take away unspent dollars that were designated for relief efforts.
We need to end the fiction that our domestic and foreign policies are somehow separate and recognize that policies that undermine working families in this country also erode America's strength in the world, in other words, it's time to create a foreign policy that works for all Americans, not just the rich and powerful.
American taxpayers should not be subsidizing the abuse and exploitation of immigrants in private detention centers. The Department of Homeland Security has a legal and moral obligation to take immediate action to ensure that private detention centers follow the law and treat all people in their custody with dignity and respect.
The 2018 election will be a massive uphill climb, and while we'd rather talk about great ideas, we can't climb that hill by ignoring the millions of Americans who are angry and scared about the damage this president and this Republican Party have done to our democracy. We can't ignore it, and we shouldn't want to ignore it.
Men like Donald Trump come to power when their country's already in deep trouble, when their economies (are) already deeply flawed and when people in those countries begin to lose hope for a better future and start looking for someone to blame, i've got news for Donald Trump: Up against our army, he doesn't stand a chance.
What you propose, from what I can tell in your writings, is less oversight of big banks, fewer efforts to reign them in, more chances for them to take on big risks to boost their profits and, if things go wrong, come crying to the government for another bailout, the question is whether someone should be put in charge of enforcing laws that they think are unnecessary or counterproductive.
When banks plead guilty to a crime, federal agencies must do more than look the other way, the SEC has already granted waivers to each of these banks without any detailed explanation, but it is not too late for the Department of Labor to hold a public hearing before it decides that such brazen lawbreakers can be trusted managing workers' retirement accounts.
We cannot continue to run this country for the top 10%. We can't keep pushing through trade deals that benefit multi-national companies at the expense of workers, government cannot continue to be the captive of the rich and the powerful. Working people cannot be forced to give up more and more as they get squeezed harder and harder.
Americans understand that the game is rigged, and they've had enough of it. They're ready to fight back. They want a Washington that works for them, i think that people are getting more engaged, politically, and they're seeing through a lot of the rhetoric that politicians have been throwing out there for a long time. They want to see some real change, and I think that's what we need to work on.
It all sounded good but what it was really about was tying the hands of regulators and turning loose big banks and giant international corporations to do whatever they wanted to do: turning them loose to rig the market and reduce competition; turning them loose to outsource more jobs; turning them loose to load up on more risks and then hide behind taxpayer guarantees; turning them loose to sell more mortgages and credit cards that cheated American families.
The House is about to vote on a budget deal -- a deal negotiated behind closed doors that slips in a provision that would let derivatives traders on Wall Street gamble with taxpayer money and get bailed out by the government when their risky bets threaten to blow up our financial system, these are the same banks that nearly broke the economy in 2008 and destroyed millions of jobs.
