    CNN President Jeff Zucker says President-elect Donald Trump's attacks on his network are an attempt to "delegitimize journalism," adding that CNN's "credibility is higher than ever." "It's just unfortunate that the most powerful person in the world is trying to delegitimize journalism and an organization that plays such a vital role in our democracy," Zucker told New York Magazine in an interview Wednesday. "I think he's entitled to his opinion, but it's - to use one of his favorite words - sad."

He then wrote: 'President Obama, because of you "those brown kids" know that they too can one day be President of the U.S. #ObamaAndKids #ObamaFarewell' Meanwhile other celebrities wrote about how much they enjoyed the speech, with some pleading for Obama be allowed to stay on in the White House.

    Then why did Barack Obama get so many things so wrong? That’s the question that inescapably arises in response to the claim by NBC correspondent Chris Jansing on today’s Morning Joe that Obama’s decision-making style is “very professorial, thoughtful, in-depth.” Jansing said that Obama and Trump “could not be more different in the way they approach problem solving,” describing Obama admin concerns about Trump’s supposed “shoot-from-the-hip” style. Mike Barnicle weighed in to wonder whether Trump would be up to the task of comforting the nation after tragedies such as the Newtown, Connecticut school shootings. View the video here.

    It was a true political miracle that Democratic establishment candidate Hillary Clinton was soundly defeated in the 2016 Presidential election. It is a testament to the will of the people, who finally gained the courage to speak up against powerful and corrupt government and corporate interests. You can be sure this shocking defeat must have stung for Hillary Clinton, who went into seclusion for a prolonged period following the election. It has also left the Democratic party scrambling to fill the power vacuum left following Clinton’s stunning loss. They may have found their answer, and it is both pathetic and...

In an interview with NPR’s Steve Inskeep on Thursday that aired in its entirety Monday on Morning Edition, Obama said it’s preferable to work with Congress. “Keep in mind, though, that my strong preference has always been to legislate when I can get legislation done,” Obama said from the Cabinet Room in the White House. “In my first two years, I wasn’t relying on executive powers, because...

    The Los Angeles Times has published an editorial arguing that the Electoral College shouldn’t be allowed to choose the next U.S. president, on the grounds that it is unconstitutional. Needless to say, Kenneth Jost’s argument is a very bold one, since the Constitution explicitly creates the Electoral College and describes how it works; the system was even refined with the 12th Amendment. But Jost, an adjunct professor at Georgetown University Law Center, says that’s no barrier to having the Supreme Court abolish the Electoral College by fiat.

    We can't have President Trump, and she could do more to advance conservative ideas than he would.

The reason is simple: Their conscience says he does not reflect their principles, nor those of our Republican Party. Trump’s isolationist approach, bombastic rhetoric and ignorance of issues are not things we can be proud to support. The president is the commander in chief, a role model for our children and America’s top ambassador...

It’s had admirable nominees who lost (Mitt Romney) and flawed nominees who won (Richard Nixon). It has never — and we certainly include Barry Goldwater — had a nominee who embarrasses and disgusts a significant number of...

    I try to minimize election predictions—especially long before the voting on election day—but I consider this prediction one of the easiest I have ever made. Hillary Clinton will win by a landslide against Donald Trump. I expect her to win 46 states, and if I am wrong, it is equally likely she will win more than 46 states in November, rather than less. FBI Director James Comey will announce that he is not recommending a criminal prosecution in the Clinton email case, which will give her a tremendous boost. To understand the full magnitude of Clinton’s coming victory consider the...

    In his weekly address released Saturday morning, President Barack Obama credited himself for the economic recovery throughout the country and specifically pointed to Elkhart, IN, where he gave a speech about the economy earlier in the week as an example. Transcript as follows: Elkhart, IN was the first town I visited as President. I’d been on the job for three weeks, and we were just a few months into the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes. Elkhart was hit harder than most. Unemployment there peaked at nearly twenty percent shortly after my visit. Nearly one in five people there were...

    Yesterday President Obama made a visit to Elkhart, Indiana to tout the so-called economic recovery as a roaring success and reason to elect Hillary Clinton in order to preserve his legacy. He also took the opportunity to slam Fox News for reporting the truth about a slow economic recovery. President Obama Delivers Remarks on the Economy Many living in Elkhart rejected Obama taking credit for the economic progress of hard working businesses in the area and a new jobs report out today is the worst we've seen on the employment front in five years. Don't be fooled by a declining...

    It seems that David Alpher, an adjunct professor at George Mason University who has a PhD in “conflict resolution” doesn’t think much of those who hold to the Constitution, i.e., “Patriots,” and, after lumping them all in with the likes of Timothy McVeigh, has decided that patriotic Americans who take a stand against an overbearing government are far more dangerous than foreign terrorists. You know, like ISIS and the terrorists who killed 3,000 innocent people on 9/11. In a screed entitled, “An expert explains why domestic extremists are a much bigger risk than foreign terrorists in America,” he refers to...

    WASHINGTON – Neoconservative pundit Bill Kristol says he is being flooded with unsolicited support from anonymous people encouraging him to keep trying to get an independent candidate to run against Donald Trump in the general election.Weekly Standard editor Kristol is known as a Republican power broker, but since Trump’s populist primary victory Kristol has been pushing a third party that he calls “The Latter Day Republicans,” speculating that Mitt Romney, Marco Rubio, Tom Cotton, or Tom Coburn could be part of an anti-Trump ticket. Kristol’s effort has apparently struck a chord with random strangers that Bill Kristol says he interacts...

    Vice President Joe Biden says he “would have been the best president” if he had mounted a successful campaign in the 2016 election, but that forgoing the race was the right decision for his family. Speaking with “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts in an exclusive interview that aired today, Biden said he had planned to run but changed course only after his eldest son Beau died last May. “No one should ever seek the presidency unless they're able to devote their whole heart and soul and passion into just doing that,” he said. “And, Beau was my soul. I...
  • Attn: Stuart Stevens and The Never Trump Coalition – The Monster Vote Is Very Real… (Landslide)

    That’s 7.2 million more votes than Barack Obama carried in 2008, and almost 13 million more than Mitt Romney carried in 2012. That’s YUGE ! That’s the Monster Vote. That’s also a landslide victory for Donald Trump. Another way of looking at it – that Monster Vote increase is simply adding 10% of the approximately 120 million voters who never vote in elections. And those new voters are exactly what you see showing up at Donald Trump primary campaign rallies.
