    So that’s how the Rev. Al stays so thin. Al Sharpton outlined a super specific diet and workout regimen that for years has helped him maintain his 130-pound weight in a Q&A with GQ Thursday. The 64-year-old activist turned MSNBC host’s exercise routine has him up at 4 a.m. seven days a week — and he follows a diet that includes three slices of seven-grain toast a day. “I have to stay at a hotel with a fitness room and that also has seven-grain toast,” he told the magazine. Sharpton was once over 300 pounds, but the controversial activist has...

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” network host Al Sharpton said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin was refusing to comply with a congressional subpoena to hand over President Donald Trump’s tax returns as part of the president’s stonewalling strategy because he “knows what’s in the documents.” Sharpton said, “He knows what’s in the documents. It may be he’s saying I lose less fighting than if they get the documents, because he knows what we all don’t know and he knows what could hurt him.” He continued, “And that’s what I think the Democrats ought to be saying is, ‘you really can’t afford for...
  • Nancy Pelosi’s meeting with MSNBC host Al Sharpton raises eyebrows

    MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton raised eyebrows Wednesday when he met with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, with critics pointing out that conservatives are scolded for similar relationships. Sharpton’s “Politics Nation” is a weekend news program on the leftist network. Mediaite’s Caleb Howe spotted a photo of the meeting on Sharpton’s Twitter feed and pondered why MSNBC isn’t criticized in the same way conservative outlets are when pundits meet with GOP lawmakers. “The question raised today was whether MSNBC, through Sharpton, should be subject to the same criticism,” Howe wrote.

    Omarosa Manigault Newman is at it again. Saturday she appeared on Al Sharpton’s show on MSNBC, I know, and made a remarkable claim. The former member of the Trump administration claimed that five boxes of evidence that should have gone to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation team were destroyed. Offering no concrete evidence to support such a serious allegation, Omarosa recounted her experience with former Chief of Staff John Kelly when he fired her in December 2017. “I think it’s important to realize that very early on in the administration, we got letters directing us to preserve all information related...

    RUSH: Mayor Pete took the train to Sylvia’s in Harlem yesterday. Was it yesterday? I guess it was yesterday. (interruption) It was yesterday. Now, the reason he did that was to meet with the Reverend Sharpton. Now, I have a different take on this. The Drive-By Media look at it as, “This is Mayor Pete. This is really smart on Mayor Pete’s part. He’s going up to Harlem and he’s talking to the Reverend Sharpton about black people, and he’s trying to get knowledge on the background of black people. He’s trying to learn about black people, even after firing...

    Actor Mark Ruffalo and filmmaker Michael Moore claim to be strategizing for a “blue deluge” in 2020. Ruffalo, the far-left “Spotlight” and "Avengers" co-star, went on Twitter on Wednesday to tell his 4.7 million followers why he was hanging out with the liberal Moore. “Last night with @MMFlint and @WSUCampaign planning strategy for the 2020 blue deluge!” Ruffalo tweeted alongside a blue wave emoji. The liberal organization We Stand United was also tagged in the tweet. According to its website, the group was started “as an idea to foster connections and unity, and to provide a hopeful vision in the...

    Candidates for the 2020 Democratic presidential primary election appeared at the National Action Network (NAN) annual conference. There they all bowed down at the altar of white guilt. One after another the mostly white candidates kissed the ring of the founder and leader of NAN, and the new pope of the Democratic Party primaries, the Reverend Al Sharpton. As Sharpton watched over his flock, each presidential aspirant professed support for a policy that fits squarely within Sharpton’s lifelong modus operandi -- using America’s original sin of slavery to shake dollars out of Americans suffering from white guilt. Many know the...

    Last weekend, a large number of Democratic Party Presidential candidates attended the National Action Network convocation, hosted by the "Reverend" Al Sharpton. The major topic of discussion? Reparations for slavery. Specifically, the audience and leadership pressed the candidates on whether they would sign off on legislation to convene a separate commission to looking into reparations for those adversely impacted by the “peculiar institution." They all agreed to do so, even the more-hesitant (and formerly moderate) presidential candidate John Hickenlooper, the former Governor of Colorado.Perhaps all this political pandering isn’t worthy of our attention. After all, these presidential candidates promised to...

    Last week, virtually every serious 2020 Democratic presidential candidate spent an unserious period of time embarrassingly kissing the ring of race-baiter extraordinaire Al Sharpton at his National Action Network conference.Sharpton’s burning question for each of them? Would they support H.R. 40, a bill originally introduced in 1989, probably as a joke, by former Democratic Michigan Rep. John Conyers, but reintroduced in today’s beyond-absurd political climate by Democratic Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee. If passed, and I’m not kidding, it would create a “Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans to examine slavery and discrimination in the colonies and...

    As Al Sharpton’s National Action Network held their conference in New York this week, an array of 2020 Democratic hopefuls showed up to address the audience. Among them was Bernie Sanders, who may or may not be an actual member of the Democratic Party, depending on what day of the week you ask him. He clearly knew what sort of red meat the audience was craving, and ditched his usual platform points for a while to deliver the sort of attacks on President Trump that draw the biggest applause at such gatherings. (NY Post) In some of his sharpest language...

    It takes a lot of personal and political courage for a black person to stand up against any issue the far Left Democratic Party supports when it comes to its practice of identity politics, but one former ACLU leader has done just that. During an interview on Fox News‘ Friday, former ACLU national board member Michael Meyers called 2020 Democrats’ push for “reparations” for blacks a total scam that itself is built on racism. “It’s more of that blame whitey movement mania, madness. And it’s sheer racial rhetoric, and that’s what you get at the Al Sharpton so-called ‘house of...

His influence has been on display this week as many of the major Democratic Party presidential candidates attended a convention sponsored by the National Action Network, a “civil rights” organization founded by Sharpton. The list of attendees included Senators Amy Klobuchar, Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, as well as Congressman Julian Castro, former Congressman “Beto” O’Rourke, former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

    ormer Colorado Gov. and 2020 Democrat presidential candidate John Hickenlooper said Friday that he will support legislation to establish a commission to study reparations for black Americans if elected president. Hickenlooper endorsed the measure while speaking at the four-day conference of the National Action Network, the civil rights organization founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton. The MSNBC host asked whether Hickenlooper would sign such a bill as president, and when he began to equivocate, the crowd became agitated, with one audience member crying out: “Yes or no!” Hickenlooper quickly went off script and shouted, “Yes, I’m gonna pass it!”

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Even as prosecutors build a case against the Army private suspected of passing hundreds of thousands of diplomatic cables to WikiLeaks, the State Department is promoting a documentary film that celebrates Pentagon Papers leaker Daniel Ellsberg. Amid its struggle to contain damage from the WikiLeaks revelations, the State Department announced Saturday that "The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers" has been selected as one of 18 films that will tour the world this year as part of its "American Documentary Showcase" program. Ellsberg, whom the film portrays as a whistleblower of conscience,...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton portrayed Mayor Rahm Emanuel as a hypocrite Saturday for criticizing Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s handling of the Jussie Smollett case when the mayor long was silent on the police murder of Laquan McDonald. **SNIP** “The reason this is of national significance to me, there is a marked difference between how they reacted to this and how they reacted to the Laquan McDonald case. They were not outraged when the video was withheld until after the mayor’s election,” Sharpton said of Emanuel, police Superintendent Eddie Johnson and other top police officials. “There was a fox...
  • Smollett Nominated for NAACP Award — Seriously, Not Satire

    From the “life imitates art imitates life imitates art” ad nauseam file, I thought this headline was satire, but noooo: “Jussie Smollett is nominated for an NAACP Award.” Of course, Smollett just walked free on 16 felony counts after his hoax hate crime in January. If you ever needed evidence that the NAACP is a race-bait organization run by hoax and scam hustlers, this would be it. Six-time host of Saturday’s festivities, “Black-ish” star Anthony Anderson, said, “I hope he wins. I’m happy for him that the system worked in his favor because the system isn’t always fair, especially for...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be a featured speaker at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network convention next month, joining a large number of Democratic presidential contenders. Sharpton said Wednesday he was impressed with the first-year congresswoman, who shocked the political world last year by defeating veteran Rep. Joe Crowley. “I met her in Washington. She seems to be very smart and committed to the progressive agenda,” Sharpton said. The convention will be held at the Sheraton Times Square from April 3-6. Ocasio-Cortez is scheduled to speak April 5 — right before Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. Other speakers include Democratic star Stacey...

    MSNBC finally got around to covering the scandal surrounding "Empire” star Jussie Smollett and allowed a guest to float a theory that Trump-supporting cops are lying about the case. MSNBC completely skipped the Smollett news during primetime on Wednesday night, which was first noticed by The Daily Caller. The same night, rival liberal media news organization CNN dedicated significant time to the Chicago Police Department announcing felony charges against the actor had been approved. Zach Stafford, the editor-in-chief of LGBTQ magazine The Advocate, joined MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt and Al Sharpton on Thursday to discuss Smollett – who faces up to...
