    Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) is calling for an apology from White House chief of staff John Kelly for "character assassination." “Not only does he owe me an apology, but he owes an apology to the American people,” Wilson said during an appearance Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy," according to The Washington Post. She also referred to Kelly as a "puppet of the president." The Florida Democrat called the deaths of four U.S. soldiers in Niger a "catastrophe." ADVERTISEMENT "We had four soldiers who died. They have been buried," she said. "And we need to know why, and we need to...

    Rep. Frederica Wilson's (D-Fla.) offices in Washington and Miami have reportedly been inundated with phone calls and threats following a war of words with President Trump this week. Staffers at one point had to turn off the phones in Wilson's D.C. office after callers bombarded the phones lines, forcing many callers to only reach a voicemail, a local CBS affiliate reported Friday. The number of calls has apparently reached the thousands over the past few days, according to the report, which said that fax machines were turned over to investigators as threats rolled in, pulling in the Capitol Police, Homeland...

    Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) said President Trump’s White House is “full of white supremacists” in a new interview Friday. “The White House itself is full of white supremacists,” she told The New York Times. It is the latest response in a four-day controversy over Trump's response to military families who have lost a loved one. Wilson earlier this week described a phone conversation she was listening in on between Trump and the widow of Army Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed in Niger. The White House later accused Wilson of politicizing a "sacred" issue. Wilson's interview is not the...

    U.S. Senator Robert Menendez, in trying to help a campaign donor who was accused of overbilling the government, enlisted then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to “amplify the pressure” on the Obama administration, the Justice Department said. Reid contacted a White House staffer, who declined to help, prosecutors disclosed Wednesday in a court filing. Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat, faces a corruption trial next week with Salomon Melgen, a Florida eye doctor and close friend accused of bribing him with hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions and lavish trips in exchange for his help on government disputes. Menendez “enlisted”...

    At a news conference on the shooting at a Republican baseball practice in Alexandria, Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe (D) called for gun control. McAuliffe called for more background checks and ending "gunshow loopholes." McAuliffe said 93 million people are a victim of gun violence a day. "This is not what today is about but there are too many guns on the street," the governor said Wednesday morning. "We lose 93 million Americans a day to gun violence."

    Journalism, by definition, is simply presenting facts. But, for many current “journalists,” the job involves more than merely transferring information. This video from MSNBC shows just how inaccurate these so-called “news” networks can be. Steve Kornacki uses the network’s absurdly inaccurate polls to creates his own delusional narrative for the presidential election, getting EVERY prediction wrong! One thing is for sure. Nobody will ever consider this guy to be a prophet. In Biblical times, he’d be lying in a pit being pelted with rocks. Actually, these poor predictions were more of a team effort, than that of just one man....

    Justin Bieber has been indicted in a years-old assault and theft case in Argentina. The superstar will be arrested should he enter the country. As Gossip Cop has reported, the issue dates back to 2013, when the singer was touring in Buenos Aires. He was accused of instructing his security guards to beat up a paparazzo, and then steal his money and camera. In 2014, Bieber was ordered to return to Argentina to testify. When he never did, an arrest warrant was issued in 2015.

    This clown’s 15 minutes of fame are about up. So he’s making the most of it. After tomorrow he will just be known as the crazy liar who voted against Trump after he pledged to support him. Chris Suprun is one of 38 Texas electors. He recently went public with his decision to go against the will of the people of Texas; he will not be honoring his pledge to vote for President Elect, Donald Trump. Chris Suprun has taken quite a beating on social media by Americans who are outraged at his decision to go rogue. There was even...

    Ken Burns has finally emerged following Donald Trump's election victory. It took over a month for that to happen since as Burns described, he "needed some time in the fetal position." Well now that the shock is starting to wear off, an interesting phenomenon has taken place which was noted by Dilbert cartoon creator, Scott Adams: the rapid evaporation of hallucinations of Trump as Hitler previously held by Burns and others.

    Last week a Republican member of the Electoral College, Christopher Suprun, published an op-ed in the NYT explaining why he would not be casting his vote for Donald Trump. Suprun is the same elector who the NY Post reported one month ago that he’s on track to vote as assigned for Donald Trump next month, despite reports saying he’d consider going rogue and voting for Hillary Clinton. Previously, Politico had quoted Suprun in August saying he found Trump so unpalatable, he’d consider going “rogue” and voting for Clinton. He then told the Post that he “always planned to vote...

    President Barack Obama explained why he's cautiously optimictic about President-elect Donald Trump during a Thursday press conference in Germany alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Obama said the "solemn responsibility" of the office and the "extraordinary demands" made on the United States "demands seriousness," and Trump will "figure out pretty fast" that the demands of the job are "not things you can treat casually." "And, if you're not serious about the job, then you probably won't be there very long because it will expose problems," he said. "Even when you're doing a good job, even when you are attentive. There are...

    Columnist David Brooks is the house "conservative" of the New York Times which means he is currently busy consoling his fellow liberals over Donald Trump's election victory. Brooks, in his column today titled The View From Trump Tower but which could more accurately be labeled "The View From Ivory Tower," describes texting people "off the ledge." Ironically it is Brooks himself who leaps off that ledge at the end of his column due to his extreme Trump Derangement Syndrome.

    Ratcheting up his mockery of Donald Trump, President Obama said Friday that the Republican nominee is behaving like a crybaby who knows he’s losing the race for president and intends “to drag this election as low as it can possibly go.” At a campaign rally for Hillary Clinton in Cleveland, the president said Mr. Trump is “making excuses all the time for why he might be losing.” “It’s always interesting for me to see folks who talk tough, but then don’t act tough,” Mr. Obama said. “If you’re tough, you don’t make excuses. You just play the game.”

    Is it Muslim or Moslem? When Baby Boomers were children it was Moslem. The American Heritage Dictionary (1992) noted,"Moslem is the form predominantly preferred in journalism and popular usage. Muslim is preferred by scholars and by English-speaking adherents of Islam." No more. Now, almost everybody uses Muslim. According to the Center for Nonproliferation Studies,"Moslem and Muslim are basically two different spellings for the same word." But the seemingly arbitrary choice of spellings is a sensitive subject for many followers of Islam. Whereas for most English speakers, the two words are synonymous in meaning, the Arabic roots of the two words...

    Former "Star Trek" star and gay activist George Takei penned an op-ed for The Daily Beast Tuesday arguing that the First Amendment cannot be protected without limiting the Second, and calling for a "common-sense" ban on firearms "designed for mass slaughter." Mr. Takei wrote that the LGBT community is grappling with the notion that Sunday’s terrorist attack on the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando "was inspired by religious fanaticism." [Snip] Mr. Takei wrote that the constitutional right for citizens to own, purchase and sell "semi-automatic firearms" conflicts with their right to peaceably assemble "without undue fear of being targeted or...

    The nation’s largest veterans group hit back at President Obama on Thursday and urged him not to “denigrate” their intelligence after the president suggested their members were easily swayed by cable news and “right-wing radio.” The Veterans of Foreign Wars called out the president after Obama referenced the political opinions at “VFW halls” in an Indiana speech Wednesday that toggled between campaign politics and the economy.

    IA Director John Brennan said Sunday that releasing the 28 classified pages from the 9/11 Commission report would be a mistake because they contain inaccurate, un-vetted information that could be used to tie Saudi Arabia to the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. "This chapter was kept out because of concerns about sensitive methods, investigative actions, and the investigation of 9/11 was still underway in 2002," Brennan said on NBC's "Meet the Press." He said information in the 28 pages hasn't been vetted or corroborated, adding that releasing the information would give ammunition to those who want to tie the terror...
