    Rep. Al Green, the Texas Democrat who has pushed to impeach President Trump every year that the commander-in-chief has been in office, said Sunday that "impeachment is not dead," despite findings from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe showing the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia. The congressman tweeted that Mueller's report, which was submitted on Friday and the key findings of which were released Sunday, "did NOT investigate bigotry emanating from the Presidency harming our country." He continued: "The findings do NOT negate the President’s bigotry. As long as bigotry influences the President’s policies, I will continue to seek...

    Between claims of racism by the investigators and claims of a collusion “cover-up”, the crazy train was doing full speed out of the station. MSNBC counterterrorism analyst Malcolm Nance was irate at Congressional Democrats, during the first half of AM Joy, because they weren’t pursuing impeachment, a.k.a “defending democracy”. “These guys are failing in their fundamental constitutional duty. Is it going to take Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to have to come and tweet something for them to get all worked up? Defend democracy,” he shouted.

    How can I impeach thee? Let me count the ways.... Still reeling from the pain of the Mueller report's failure to deliver any additional indictments, Joy Reid this morning fantasized a list of possibly impeachable offenses. The most hilarious, reflecting Reid's unfamiliarity with the Bill of Rights, was her claim that Trump's "attacking the media" could be grounds for impeachment. Reid said that while the criticism isn't a crime, "it's a violation of the First Amendment in a lot of ways."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • WATCH: Joy Reid Comes To A Real Stupid Conclusion About The Mueller Report

    Source: MSNBC Although the contents of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report have not been released, Lefties, including MSNBC's Joy Reid, are convinced the Department of Justice is "covering up" for President Donald Trump. They have come to this conclusion because Mueller is not indicting anyone else, including Trump. The reason Reid believes a cover-up is taking place? Because the Justice Department ran the investigation. “The fact that this investigation takes place within the Justice Department which Donald Trump essentially controls and that he got rid of the problem, Jeff Sessions, who the one decent thing that he did was...

    Keep hope alive! Okay, yeah, the Mueller investigation looks like a bust, and won't produce any more indictments. But hey: there are still lots of other investigations out there! The dream continues! That was the theme of Joy Reid's MSNBC show this morning. Check out the mashup we've created, and you'll soon get the idea. From congressional investigations, to the Southern District of New York, it's investigations a go-go! The number of pending investigations was variously given as 16, 17, and even [facetiously, we presume] 47, according to David Korn! Get the rest of the story and view the video...

    FULL HEADER: Converse pulls a Gillette with SJW ad campaign .Features bizarre art, naturally demonizing white men ... to sell shoes Converse has released a new ad campaign that may actually be worse than Gillette’s. Titled, “The Woman Who Lived in a Shoe,” Converse explained that the campaign features “modern day nursery rhymes for women who own their stories.” The cringe-worthy ad tells the “real” stories of women of color who apparently quit their jobs, opted not to get married or have children, get trolled online and “choose the life” that they lead.

    Two New Jersey Assembly members want school districts to stop teaching Mark Twain’s “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” because of racist language and themes in the 134-year-old story. The book chronicles the travels of Huckleberry Finn, who ran away from his abusive father, and Jim, a runaway slave, along the the Mississippi River. It’s set in the antebellum south but was written in the early days of the JIm Crow Laws. It contains more than 200 uses of the N-word and “its depiction of racist attitudes can cause students to feel upset, marginalized, or humiliated and can create an uncomfortable atmosphere...

    There is a long history of banning books both here in the United States and abroad. Books that come to mind are D. H. Lawerence's Lady Chatterley's Lover, Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn, and a whole host of others. In more recent times, the Supreme Court has rejected efforts to ban books just because someone didn't like it. See Island Trees School District v. Pico (1982) Here is a book that you need to buy that many in the gun control industry would like to see banned. It is called The Liberator Code Book: An Exercise in Free Speech. The book...

    DULUTH, Minn. - Students taking English classes in a Minnesota city will no longer have to read two American classics or write reports about them, the Duluth News Tribune reported. “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” and “To Kill a Mockingbird,” which contain racial slurs, will no longer be required reading for students in the Duluth Public School district’s English classes next fall. However, the books are not banned: They will be available in the school as optional reading for students, the News Tribune reported. The decision comes two months after a Virginia school temporarily banned the two novels after a...

    After The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was published in 1885, the book was boycotted in some places in the United States for portraying friendship between a black man and a white boy."In its time, it was derided and censored," said Deborah Caldwell-Stone, deputy director of the American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom, which tracks challenges to books.Today, Mark Twain's classic - about a boy who flees his abusive father and travels down the Mississippi River with an escaped slave - is still sometimes challenged in American schools, but for nearly the opposite reason: its liberal use of the N-word...

    Mark Twain & Helen Keller’s Special Friendship: He Treated Me Not as a Freak, But as a Person Dealing with Great Difficulties Sometimes it can seem as though the more we think we know a historical figure, the less we actually do. Helen Keller? We’ve all seen (or think we’ve seen) some version of The Miracle Worker, right?—even if we haven’t actually read Keller’s autobiography. And Mark Twain? He can seem like an old family friend. But I find people are often surprised to learn that Keller was a radical socialist firebrand, in sympathy with workers’ movements worldwide. In a...

    Will Mark Twain’s irony of wit work for Hilary’s peccadilloes? Samuel Clemens is America’s seminal author of the 20th Century; from his pen, the American author was defined. Armed with imagination and an orator's wit, he is more well known and remembered by his pen name Mark Twain. Ernest Hemingway said of Twain: “All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn. American writing comes from that. There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since.” Hopefully most readers have read some of Hemingway’s novels and Twain’s “Huckleberry Finn”; since, you will...

    The more vulgar the culture gets, the more squeamish the keepers of the rules. The more verbal and visual taboos we break, the greater the threat to free speech. The National Football League institutes a 15-yard penalty for a football player who uses the N-word. If he uses it a second time, he's benched. This is the word with a cruel racist history, but which is now used as a term of affection if the person of the right color uses it. It's a word heard 500,000 times a day, reports The Washington Post in a front-page story that examines...

    With recent footage of black teenagers cold-cocking random strangers in a deadly game known as “Knockout,” Americans should recognize how badly our country needs a selfless voice of leadership heard in all of our homes. But until the dignified message of someone like Dr. Ben Carson becomes mainstream, Mark Twain’s classic punch to the face has always packed the power to knock some sense in to people who need it the most. Nearly 130 years after The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was published, Twain’s timeless lessons on race and humanity continue to offer America a remedy to racial bigotry --...

    The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is being censored; since censorship is a concept and weapon of the Left to enforce political correctness upon the masses, Mark Twain is involved in 21st century politics; when advocating or opposing the censoring of "Huck Finn," one has taken a political stance But the Right has a storied history of ceremoniously burning books that they believe are evil with celebrated bonfires. Both the political Left and Right have ink-stained hands.

    This thread will contain the entire text of "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain, who was not only a socialist, and never worked a day in his life, but also believed that William Shakespeare didn't write the works of William Shakespeare. IOW, he was a deeply flawed do-nothing who happened to become (temporarily) successful in middle age."All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn...

    Free Speech: No one should be surprised that the police of political correctness have finally begun rewriting literary classics. But their double standards of censorship are not about to stop at the racially offensive. The Montgomery, Ala.-based New South Books has published titles that include 2006's "Ali Dubyiah and the Forty Thieves," described as "the tale of the ruler George W. 'Dubyiah' Fratbush, son of the earlier monarch Wimpbush, and the Fall of the American Empire." In it, Dubyiah's "lust for power draws him into a gambit to take possession of the world, together with his band of thieves —...
