Trish Regan: Conflict of interests rampant in Iowa caucus

Trish Regan: Brokered convention could encourage Clinton to run again

If there’s not a Democratic frontrunner for president, will Hillary Clinton run yet again?

President Trump, fresh off his best week ever, is in New Hampshire, stealing the spotlight from the Democrats in the Granite State.

As the president celebrates with his supporters, Democrats are still duking it out less than 24 hours ahead of the first primary in the nation.

The president gained 1 million new donors and raised $117 million since the whole impeachment charade began.

Meanwhile, the only Democratic candidate the party establishment sees as having a chance against the president is former vice president Joe Biden. Biden is still struggling and looking for maybe a fourth-place finish in New Hampshire on the heels of his fourth-place finish in Iowa.


Biden was in my hometown of Hampton on Sunday when this odd exchange took place:

Voter: How do you explain the performance in Iowa? And why should the voters believe that you can win the national election? 

Biden: It's a good question. No. 1: Iowa's a democratic caucus. You ever been to a caucus? No, you haven't. You're a lying, dog-faced pony soldier. You said you were, but now you got to be honest. I'm gonna be honest with you.

This is just the latest in a series of mishaps. Word on the street is that Biden is horrible as a campaign manager. So, I'll ask the obvious question: How’s he going to manage a country, if he can’t manage a campaign?


Meanwhile, forget Biden for a second, because that analogy applies to the entire field. I'm talking Democrats in general. If they can’t manage an election, how do they manage a country?

Take Iowa: the Associated Press still has not declared a winner. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who many believe got robbed in 2016 by the Democrat establishment, wants to recanvass.

He ought to want it – given what we’ve reported on this Democrat-funded, Democrat-controlled shadow company that was literally called "Shadow" and was run by South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg's campaign manager’s wife. The conflict of interests ran rampant: Board members part of the Democratic establishment, Buttigieg's campaign manager reportedly giving his wife’s company $42,500 from campaign coffers, and suddenly Buttigieg emerges the winner?!


Now, with no viable candidate in sight, there are growing indications the Democrats could be heading to a brokered convention, which may be exactly what Hillary Clinton is hoping. Don’t forget, she refuses to take her name out of the race and keeps hinting at a possible run.

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon predicted this on Trish Regan Primetime as early as September 2019.

And most recently, he said: "Hillary Clinton I believe is gonna come in to try to quote-un-quote save the Democratic Party because none of these candidates are gonna beat Trump, it's become very obvious particularly the far-left of the Democratic party. Bloomberg's gonna come in, have an impact and I think Hillary Clinton's gonna get warmed up in the bullpen and eventually come in a brokered convention and be their nominee."

I’ll tell you one thing, if that happens, New Hampshire, the state I grew up in, would not be happy. Sanders beat Clinton here by a sizable margin in 2016.


The Democrats are running out of time. They need to select a candidate and galvanize behind him or her. But in the meantime, the president is running circles around them and taking their ineptitude, anger, and chaos — all the way to the bank considering the millions raised since impeachment started.

That’s what you call the boomerang effect. So much for that impeachment idea, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Going forward: perhaps you shouldn’t listen to "The Squad."

Google accused of creating 'creepy' spy tool to squelch worker dissent

Google workers are accusing the company of developing an internal surveillance tool that they believe will be used to monitor their attempts to organise protests and discuss labour rights.Earlier this month, employees said they discovered that a team within the company was creating the new tool for the custom Google Chrome browser installed on all workers' computers and used to search internal systems. The concerns were outlined in a memo written by a Google employee and reviewed by Bloomberg News, and by three Google employees who requested anonymity because they aren't authorised to talk to the press.The tool would automatically report staffers who create a calendar event with more than 10 rooms or 100 participants, according to the employee memo. The most likely explanation, the memo alleged, "is that this is an attempt of leadership to immediately learn about any workers organisation attempts."Google is using the new software tool to police its own workers amid r…

At Least 23 People Dead in Australia Bushfires As Blazes Continue Raging

SYDNEY (AP) — A father and son who were battling flames for two days are the latest victims of the worst wildfire season in Australian history, and the path of destruction widened in at least three states Saturday due to strong winds and high temperatures.The death toll in the wildfire crisis is now up to 23 people, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said after calling up about 3,000 reservists to battle the escalating fires, which are expected to be particularly fierce throughout the weekend.“We are facing another extremely difficult next 24 hours,” Morrison said at a televised news conference. “In recent times, particularly over the course of the balance of this week, we have seen this disaster escalate to an entirely new level.”Dick Lang, a 78-year-old acclaimed bush pilot and outback safari operator, and his 43-year-old son, Clayton, were identified by Australian authorities after their bodies were found Saturday on a highway on Kangaroo Island.

It will take 100 years for women to earn the same as men at this rate

The wage gap between men and women is 20%, meaning women get paid 80 cents to every $1 men earn, according to a recent study.The pay gap narrowed about 2% in the last ten years. If things don't improve, it will take a century for women to reach equal pay, according to Goldman Sachs.The firm said at least part of the unexplained gap could be due to the lack of women in highly-paid senior roles, despite being on average more educated than men.It could take a century for women to be paid as much as men, if things stay as they are now.The wage gap between men and women is 20%, meaning women get paid 80 cents for every $1 men earn. In the last ten years, the pay gap only narrowed about 2%, and if performance stays consist with the past decade's, it would take 100 years to reach equal pay, according to Goldman Sachs."The latest data show there's more work to do," said Amanda Hindlian, global COO of global investment research at Goldman Sachs in a note titled "Clos…
