  • Al Sharpton: George Floyd couldn't breathe. We protest because now all of Black America can't either.

    NBC "News" / Comcast ^ | May 31, 2020 | Rev. Al Sharpton
    George Floyd should have been alive today. George Floyd would have been alive today if his humanity was recognized, valued and respected. George Floyd should have been protected by those who swore an oath to uphold the law and help the communities they serve. George Floyd is no longer with us because even in the middle of a global pandemic, police brutality has not ceased. COVID-19 is ravaging us, making it difficult to breathe, and yet systemic racism has been tightening its grip on our throats for years. Racism is trauma, passed from generation to generation. Enough is enough. Just...

    Y’all do realize “antifa” is just short for “anti-fascists…” right? As in the people who confronted the nazis in Charlottesville… why would they try to burn and destroy black communities?— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) May 30, 2020 And why didn’t Bill Barr mention the “boogaloo boys” and other far right movements who per multiple reports are actively organizing online to try and start their fantasized “race war?” — Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) Is the DOJ even investigating this stuff? Or is Barr just doing the usual: appeasing Trump and his fans’ conspiracy theories??— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) And is the president really planning...

  • Michael Moore slams 'disgusting' DNC for clearing debate path for Bloomberg: 'Because he has a billion f---ing dollars!'

    Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore blasted the Democratic National Committee (DNC) over what he described as its "disgusting" rule changes, saying they might pave the way for billionaire Michael Bloomberg to land a spot on the next presidential debate stage. On Friday, the DNC announced its requirements for the Feb. 19 debate in Las Vegas, increasing the polling threshold in addition to allowing any candidate who has earned delegates in the Iowa and New Hampshire primaries -- but it also eliminated the donor threshold that was previously set for its Democratic candidates. That means Bloomberg, who has been self-funding his campaign,...

    Pro-abortion Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg blasted pro-life laws during a campaign swing in Alabama this week. He attacked the pro-life legislators behind a law the state legislature approved this year that would protect women and unborn children from abortion. In May, Gov. Kay Ivey signed a bill that bans abortion in Alabama. But, during a roundtable discussion with abortion activists and Democrat voters, Buttigieg went after the pro-life lawmakers behind the bill, falsely claiming they “ignore science” and just want to “punish women.” Here’s more: Buttigieg criticized the law, saying the legislature was “ignoring science, criminalizing abortion, and punishing...
  • In New Netflix Doc On White Privilege, Chelsea Handler Shocked The Wokesters Hate Her

    Two years after the cancellation of her talk show, Chelsea Handler is back on Netflix, this time delivering a documentary-style dive into the concept of white privilege. “Hello Privilege, It’s Me Chelsea” dropped on Friday the Thirteenth, promising to explore how white privilege has benefited Handler’s life. When Chelsea first introduced her fans to the project on Instagram—taking a break from her usual marijuana smoke-filled cooking escapades—it seemed puzzling. Handler is, after all, the stand-up comedienne who penned the book “Uganda Be Kidding Me” and released a comedy special by the same name just five years ago.

    Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura hinted at a possible White House bid as an independent during an interview over the weekend, while harshly criticizing President Trump. Speaking on Fox Los Angeles "The Issue Is," the onetime wrestling star and outspoken Minnesota pol said he would wait until the pool of presidential candidates dwindles further before possibly enterting the race. “I may be doing things behind the scenes right now,” Ventura said, winking to host Elex Michaelson. “You gotta wait for it to get down to two, then you come in if you’re going to come in.” “I have that voice...

    The Political Insider ^ | July 23, 2019 | Wayne Dupree
    This hurts, because I like Tulsi Gabbard. She challenges Democrats for their hypocrisy, but her recent statement is beyond the pale for me. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard went on ABC's The View and made false claims that President Trump was inciting violence across the country. If Trump is inciting racism and violence, it’s the one thing he’s doing a very poor job at. I think he needs to turn to the Democrats for lessons on racism and political violence. I thought that in an alternate universe I could see myself maybe voting for Gabbard, depending upon several contingencies. Now, I am...

    Monday on ABC’s “The View,” Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) said President Donald Trump was “inciting racism and violence,” by continuing his feud with Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), known as “The Squad.” Co-host Sunny Hostin asked, “The president hasn’t backed down on his attacks on the four freshmen congresswomen. This weekend he tweeted this, ‘I don’t believe the four congresswomen are capable of loving our country.’ Do you think the president is inciting violence against these women?”

    Margaret Atwood, the bestselling author of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” said Friday that states passing anti-abortion laws should pay women who give birth. In an appearance on The View, Atwood notes states are rolling back abortion rights, saying, “You’re approaching a state in which women are essentially being conscripted or drafted the way you would be conscripted or drafted into the Army … they get their food, their lodging, their clothing, their medical — all of that coverage.” She added: “If you want the state to claim ownership of women’s bodies, you should pay.” Atwood’s comments come after multiple states —...

    Dear friend, This week, the Trump Administration announced plans to take $3.6 billion away from military construction projects so the President can build portions of his border wall. That includes taking away more than $77 million from projects in Virginia. President Trump's decision to pull funding from critical national security projects is deeply concerning. Our military construction funding should be used for safety improvements that protect our troops and bolster our national security, not for a vanity project. The Department of Defense informed me that the Administration plans to take funding away from the following military construction projects in Virginia:...

    Elizabeth Warren defended her false claim that Michael Brown had been “murdered” by police. Brown was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson on August 9, 2014. That much is true. Left-wing activists said Brown had been shot in the back and had put his hands over his head and said, “Don’t shoot!”. None of those claims were true. The incident revitalized the “Black Lives Matter” movement, bringing unrest to many American cities. Race relations suffered a decline from which they have not recovered. The Obama Justice Department found Brown had not been murdered, that he probably attacked Wilson...

    Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams will not run for president, according to media reports, and will instead focus on combating voter suppression, an issue that took center stage during her unsuccessful run last year. On Tuesday, Abrams announced her new initiative, called Fair Fight 2020, at the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades Convention in Las Vegas. The name is an offshoot of a group she started after her loss. A close aide familiar with the decision told The New York Times that Abrams will focus on the new program rather than run for office.

    Shaun King, an influential social-justice activist in the national Black Lives Matter movement, has endorsed Jody Owens in the race for Hinds County district attorney. King and his political action committee, Real Justice PAC, join a number of local officials and community leaders in supporting Owens, including Jackson Mayor Chokwe A. Lumumba. King's activist work includes organizing a social-media campaign for attackers in the assault of Deandre Harris, whom six men attacked in a parking garage during the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017. King raised $60,000 for Tamir Rice's family. Rice was a 12-year-old black boy...

    For the first time since the end of World War I, the president of the United States is not the leader of the free world. When the guns fell silent at the end of the Great War on Nov. 11, 1918, Europe was in ashes after more than four years of fighting. America was newly ascendant, a leader in manufacturing, science, military power and global influence – with a home front untouched by the destruction of war. Our leading role as the most powerful and influential nation on Earth was solidified with our victory in World War II. We never...
