    NEW YORK (AP) — Two of John Lewis’ books have sold out on Amazon after the Democratic congressman claimed the top spots on the retailer’s best-seller list. Sales of the civil rights leader’s graphic novel “March” and his 2015 memoir “Walking With the Wind” skyrocketed following his feud with President-elect Donald Trump over the Martin Luther King Jr.
  • Networks on Trump: A ‘Dark Speech’ From a ‘Vengeful’ ‘Demagogue’

    The three networks on Thursday night immediately derided Donald Trump’s “dark speech” as one coming from a “vengeful” “demagogue.” On NBC, Tom Brokaw allowed that “some” will see Trump as on a “white horse who will lead them to some kind of sanctuary and then pull the drawbridge up.” But he sneered, “Others looking in are going to see someone they will only think as a demagogue of some kind.” Chuck Todd labeled, “I thought it was an extraordinarily dark speech.” Republican operative Nicolle Wallace lamented, “We are now represented as a party by a man who believes in protectionism,...

    Pres. Obama said that Nordic countries would make the world “more secure and more prosperous” if "we" would just let them run things. Welcoming the leaders of Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland to the White House on Friday, Obama said that, if “we” let Nordic countries control the world, that “they could clean things up”: “So I really do believe that the world would be more secure and more prosperous if we just had more partners like our Nordic countries. There have been times where I’ve said, why don’t we just put all these small countries in charge for...

    In many ways, Donald Trump's political talking points are Orwellian at best. His constant insistence that the U.S. is not "winning" is being repeated with such pneumatic regularity that voters believe it. Or if they don't yet, they may soon. Whether we are getting killed on trade or being flooded with illegal immigrants, Donald Trump has been making arguments that were, in part, true thirty years ago, but most certainly not today. The "INGSOC" slogans in Orwell's epic dystopian novel, "1984": "War is Peace" "Freedom is Slavery" "Ignorance is Strength" Would fit nicely among Trump's litany of incongruous phrases: "The...

    Former Mexican President Vicente Fox on Friday kept up his withering criticism of Donald Trump, saying the GOP front-runner reminds him of Adolf Hitler. "Today, he's going to take that nation (U.S.) back to the old days of conflict, war and everything. I mean, he reminds me of Hitler. That's the way he started speaking," Fox told CNN's Anderson Cooper in a phone interview on "Anderson Cooper 360." "He has offended Mexico, Mexicans, (and) immigrants. He has offended the Pope. He has offended the Chinese. He's offended everybody." Fox's comments come one day after he delivered a scathing response on...

    Thursday on ABC’s “The View,” co-host Raven-Symonè declared she would leave the United States for Canada if a Republican is “nominated.” Symonè said, “My confession for this election is if any Republican gets nominated, I’m gonna move to Canada with my entire family. Is that bad?” When pressed she added, “I already have my ticket … No, I literally bought my ticket, I swear.”

    Barack Obama also trashes working class white males in the interview. The New York Times reported: President Obama said in a radio interview airing on Monday that Donald J. Trump, a leading contender for the Republican presidential nomination, is exploiting the resentment and anxieties of working-class men to boost his campaign. Mr. Obama also argued that some of the scorn directed at him personally stems from the fact that he is the first African-American to hold the White House. Demographic changes and economic stresses, including "flatlining" wages and incomes, have meant that "particularly blue-collar men have had a lot of...
  • Rand Paul Quickly Ends Filibuster Against Raising Debt Ceiling

    Updated | In an effort to delay passage of a bipartisan budget deal, Senator Rand Paul began a filibuster around 3 p.m. on Thursday. The effort was expected to continue through 1 a.m. on Friday, but ended after speaking for only 18 minutes and 40 seconds, according to MSNBC.  It turns out the Republican senator from Kentucky spoke against the budget bill only until the time the Senate was to vote on the deal. The Senate would have allowed Paul to continue speaking until midnight, but only if he didn't sit down or use the restroom, a physically exhausting feat if nothing else. At midnight,...

    DENVER -- in the face to conservatives." Likely speaker of the House Paul Ryan has said the process that created it "stinks." But Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is the first Republican to pledge outright that he'll try to scutter the compromise debt limit bill designed to kick any tough new vote into 2017. "I will filibuster the new debt ceiling bill," Paul said at an event on the University of Colorado's Denver campus. "It is horrible, it's hard for me not to use profanity describing it." Paul also called the bill a "steaming pile of legislation," and urged fellow Republicans...

    The Gog of Turkey, president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, said his country could not endure Russian violations any longer of its airspace in its campaign in Syria. Gog y Magog Russian involvement in the 4½-year-old Syrian civil war seems to be escalating, with NATO’s secretary general confirming Tuesday a second incursion by Russian planes into Turkish airspace and saying Russian ground troops were in Syria as well. The first violation of Turkey’s airspace is reported to have happened Saturday. The second was Sunday, officials said. Now even CNN says: The tension between Russia and Turkey, however, appears to be escalating. The...

    An obligatory follow-up to last night’s post. Sounds like my theory was largely correct: It’s not just his personal falling-out with Palin, which he elaborates on in his new Facebook post, or her embrace of the progressive Trump that’s bothering him, it’s the whole damned discombobulating phenomenon of Trumpmania among the tea party and its sympathizers.Especially its sympathizers in conservative talk radio. I do not understand her position and love of Trump. He is clearly a progressive, not a small government constitutionalist…But he is also a bully, sexist, cruel, an ego manic and narcissist in ways that makes Barack...

    I seldom listen to Glenn Beck anymore. When I do it's while driving between places. I'll turn him on and invariably, he'll be selling gold, emergency food rations, (I guess he's never heard of bottled water and canned food) or inside joking with his cohorts. Occasionally, his dry drunk surfaces like it did yesterday, when out of the blue, he calls Sarah Palin, "A Clown" because of the speech she gave at the Iran Nuclear rally and that she supports Trump. Then today, he increased his rhetoric on Trump referring to his speech at the Iran Nuclear rally a "Clown...

    I haven’t had a relationship with Sarah since about the time of the shooting of Gabby Giffords. Nothing to do with that at all, but it was around that time that she withdrew from me and my team and it was because, as Todd told me on the phone, “we have been told who our real friends are.” I was stunned. I had backed her hard in every way I knew how. At that time I really believed in her and in fact I really believed she had the ability to change the world for the better. While I have...

    Glenn Beck is fed up with Sarah Palin, one of the Tea Party’s real heroes. On his radio show on The Blaze yesterday, Beck lashed out at Palin over her apparent support for billionaire businessman Donald Trump. He called John McCain’s former running mate a “clown,” adding: “I’m embarrassed I once supported her.” [VIDEO] Beck: "I didn’t listen to her speech. Yeah, I’m going to say it. I don’t care what Sarah Palin says any more. Sarah Palin has become a clown. I’m embarrassed that I was once for Sarah Palin. Honestly, I’m embarrassed." That’s strong and powerful, but it...

    Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin shared the stage at yesterday’s anti-Iran nuclear rally in Washington, D.C., but apparently the one-time allies no longer see eye to eye. During his post-mortem radio broadcast about the event, Beck had this to say about Palin’s speech: “I’m going to say it. I don’t care what Sarah Palin says any more. Sarah Palin has become a clown. I’m embarrassed that I was once for Sarah Palin. Honestly, I’m embarrassed… I don’t know who she is any more, I don’t know what she stands for. I saw a clip of her talking to Donald Trump....

    Glenn Beck is having an absolute hissy on the radio right now. In epic meltdown, he is literally rambling and mad at the world. The In the course of the first 45 minutes in the program we've learned that: - Sarah Palin is a clown - Trump supporters are no different than Obama supporters in 2008/2012 -Don Lemon on the other hand, is an honest guy trying to do the right thing -Ted Cruz is in Donald Trump's hip pocket I honestly thought at one point he was going to scream "STOP LIKING SOMEONE I DON'T LIKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!". It seems ironic...
