    Shunned by his Hollywood friends and activist pals, an increasingly isolated and paranoid Bill Cosby lives in constant fear of someone slipping something into his food or drink. During pre-trial hearings and jury selection in Pittsburgh, ahead of the June 5 start of his sexual assault trial in Philadelphia, the 79-year-old comedian refused to stay in local hotels because of perceived threats. Instead he woke up at 2:30 every morning to fly his private jet to the courthouse from his suburban Philly home. “He and his wife are afraid that if he stayed at a hotel, someone will find a...
  • Sharpton Guest: Jesus was a “brown-skinned Palestinian man who understood he needed to resist”

    Jesus: social justice warrior? Apparently so, if you believe Jacqui Lewis, senior minister of the very liberal Middle Collegiate Church in NYC. During her appearance on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show this morning, Lewis described Jesus as a “brown-skinned Palestinian man who understood he needed to resist.” The notion that Jesus was Palestinian has been thoroughly debunked. He was Jewish, after all. But that hasn’t stopped anti-Semites like Barack Obama’s former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, from also making the claim. View the video here.

    Tuesday is tax day. I tell you this not to raise your blood pressure, but to remind you. If youÂ’re like me, you wait till the last minute because you have to cut a check to Uncle Sam. Since withholdings used to force me to give the government an interest-free loan before I started doing contracting work, I figured making them wait till the very last day was the least I could do to protest for the hand in my wallet they used to have for me.But I will cut that check again this year, as I do every year....

    An Al Sharpton guest has the early lead for today’s most simultaneously inflammatory and nonsensical statement. Ras Baraka, mayor of Newark, NJ, said that in clamping down on sanctuary cities such as his, the Trump administration is “trying to intimidate us into being what I’ve called fugitive slave catchers.” View the video here.

    The Washington Examiner ^ | March 25, 2017 | Ryan Lovelace
    Rev. Al Sharpton is not happy with what he perceives as the White House's special treatment of President Trump's daughter. . . . "Giving a office on the West Wing of Ivanka Trump, somebody explain to me how you can give security clearance, access to classified material, and a office to somebody that don't have a title or job?" Sharpton said. "They say now she ain't got no title. She ain't got no role. We ain't payin' her no money. But she can see everything classified."

    On Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show today, Rep. Barbara Lee of California, a member of the congressional Black and Progressive caucuses, called for the removal of Steve Bannon from his position on the National Security Council, and more generally from his White House on President Trump’s staff. Lee mentioned that the Black, Progressive, Hispanic and Asian Pacific caucuses had written a letter to President Trump asking for Bannon’s removal from the NSC. But Lee went further, twice stating that they were looking into a “legal mechanism” for the removal of Bannon. View the video here.

    U.S. civil rights activists vowed on Saturday to defend hard-fought gains in voting rights and criminal justice during the presidency of Donald Trump, kicking off a week of protests ahead of the Republican's inauguration. – Reuters From a silly “Cough-In” at one of Trump’s restaurants to John Lewis’s declaration that he would be skipping the inauguration in protest, to Rosie O’Donnell’s plan to swear John McCain in as an emergency interim president, the Left was hard at work organizing against America this week. Their one remaining grievance – that butt for Russia we would be preparing to inaugurate America’s...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton on Sunday praised President Obama and touted his accomplishments while in office. "I am so proud of President Barack Obama, not just because he was and is my color, but because he was America's kind," Sharpton said on MSNBC's "Politics Nation." "He helped this country like no president I've seen in my lifetime. We should thank God we lived in the age of Obama." Sharpton said Americans must be "concerned" about the future of the country when President-elect Donald Trump is inaugurated next week. He went on to tout Obama's record, including his work on improving...

    Al Sharpton will be marching on Washington on Martin Luther King Day, just five days before President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration. It may be a lonely walk. Sharpton’s “We Shall Not Be Moved” march has piqued the interest of fewer than 1,000 people on Facebook. A rival event, the Women’s March on Washington, has already secured 175,000 RSVPs, with an additional 250,000 people saying they’re interested in attending. Two key organizers of the Women’s March are former executive directors of National Action Network, the civil-rights nonprofit Sharpton founded in 1991. Led almost exclusively by women of color, the Women’s March is...

    WASHINGTON -- National Action Network president Rev. Al Sharpton promised a “season of civil disobedience” in reaction to the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) for attorney general in the Trump administration. Sharpton, an MSNBC host, said activists have planned a march in Washington on Jan. 14 during the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend to protest the Sessions nomination. Sharpton recalled spending 90 days in jail for protesting on U.S. Navy land against military exercises on the island of Vieques in 2001 when George W. Bush was president, adding that civil disobedience usually works because it changes policy.

    The Rev. Al Sharpton says Americans cannot afford Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) serving as President-elect Donald Trump’s attorney general. “To have Sen. Sessions as attorney general is a nightmare we cannot wake up from,” he said during a Friday press call with other civil rights leaders, according to the Washington Examiner. The NAACP’s president, meanwhile, said his organization mainly opposes Sessions over his record on voting rights.

"I was surprised and candid about our sharp disagreements, and so was he." Sharpton said he was convening a meeting of the board of the National Action Network when the call came.

    Al Sharpton said he was just kidding when he said he was leaving the country if Donald Trump became president. Just days after the Republican nominee was declared the winner, the civil rights activist said comments he made previously like that “he was reserving his ticket to get out of here if he wins” was “all in jest.” “All of us said that,” Sharpton told a TMZ cameraman. “That was said in jest. We’re not going anywhere. Clearly, it was said in jest. If that’s the comfort they got, they might as well get ready for an uncomfortable ride.” “Mr....

    Tax dodger and riot starter Al Sharpton had a bone to pick with GOP nominee Donald Trump, on his MSNBC Sunday show Politics Nation, for playing coy with accepting the outcome of the election. Sharpton brought on Trump’s Senior Campaign Adviser Boris Epshteyn to browbeat him over the comments saying, “Boris, just how big would Clinton's win have to be for Trump to admit it is, quote, “Not questionable?”” But Epshteyn quickly turned the tables and left Sharpton confused by merely mentioning the explosive new Project Veritas videos. Sharpton was on the attack right out of the gate. The MSNBC host, without...

    The Reverend Al Sharpton is famous. What he should be is notorious. He has many, many life lowlights. The one that pertains to our conversation here is the 2014 New York Times report that he was at that time $4.5 million short on his federal and New York state taxes. ThatÂ’s a lot. And it brings to mind many thoughts regarding the Reverend. None of which, for normal people, is: What this guy really deserves is a government bailout check. Yet that is what New York state Governor Andrew Cuomo is on the verge of doing for Exelon Generation...
  • Sharpton Guest: More Outrage Over Trump Hot Mic Because Comments “Focused on a White Woman”

    Quick: name the woman who was the object of Donald Trump’s crude remarks on the hot mic. Bet most of us can’t. Because her identity, while not a secret, has not been featured in the coverage. But that won’t stop someone determined to drag race and racism into the matter from doing so. Enter Tara Dowdell. The former Apprentice participant, appearing on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show this morning, claimed that there is “more concern and outrage” about Trump’s hot mic comments because they were “focused on a white woman.” Dowdell’s statement amounted to an accusation of racism against Americans at...

    Joe Scarborough was probably just trying to make the point that Donald Trump is very unpopular with black voters, but he wound up saying something that some might view as insulting to African-Americans. Interviewing Al Sharpton on today’s Morning Joe, he asked about the Rev’s view that Hillary has not been doing enough to appeal to black voters. As Sharpton prefaced his remarks by observing that Hillary is way ahead of Trump among black voters, Scarborough interjected “my dog’s way ahead of Trump among black voters.” Watch the video and note how Scarborough trails off at the end, possibly realizing...

    There is something otherworldly about Hillary Clinton accusing her Republican rival of running a presidential campaign steeped in “racial resentment,” “divisive rhetoric,” and “racist comments.” Otherworldly, because these are precisely the elements that have been Hillary's stock-in-trade since the dawn of her political career. During her first presidential campaign eight years ago, Mrs. Clinton spoke at an event held by Al Sharpton's National Action Network, where she crowed about the “long and positive relationship” she had enjoyed with Sharpton and his organization.

    The Libertarian Party candidate for president, Gary Johnson, joined Al Sharpton on MSNBC’s PoliticsNation Sunday to discuss the prospects of a third party’s chances of success in 2016. But Sharpton’s real goal seemed to be to defend Hillary Clinton and discredit Libertarians by asking Johnson, “Do you ever have any slight fear even that you may be taking votes from Hillary Clinton and helping to elect Donald Trump?”But before Sharpton’s blatant shilling for Clinton he took shots at the Libertarian Party in ways that seemed to be designed to discredit them. “Now I couldn’t help but notice you’ve talked about...
