    Real cause of Dr. King – to bring this nation together in a fulfillment of his vision, a great unified America The hackery that is prevalent within the democrat party has become so virulent, it is on the verge of accomplishing its decades-long goal of undermining the foundations of our government. In many ways, the goal has already been reached, particularly when party toadies the likes of John Lewis have built their career on a single act, even if it was one deserving merit.

    While the rants of raves of all the "Donald J. Trump" Democrat haters swirl around us...the big picture is being lost by both the the Democrat Party and their adoring media. The Democrat Party is committing self-inflicted political destruction. Fact is: the Democrat Party now has a very narrow and limited base. Gone are Blue Collar workers, gone are industrial union members, gone are Military folks, gone are all First Responders, Cops, Firemen, EMTs, AMTs, etc., gone are many African-Americans & Hispanics, who for the last eight years felt abandoned by POTUS, Obama, the CBC, the NAACP, gone are millions...

    I just read the DNI report and the bottom line is: DHS assesses that the types of systems Russian actors targeted or compromised were not involved in vote tallying. However, if we remember Jill Stein's recount, the Michigan results show that there was a second entity which "hacked" the election. The Detroit results, with more votes than voters in 70% of the precincts, show that someone clearly hacked the vote tallying equipment. And, that someone, the hacker, was -- the Democrat party.

    House Speaker Paul Ryan said that President Barack Obama's actions against Russia should have come much sooner. (Photos: Pablo Martinez Monsivais/AP; Susan Walsh/AP) House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., thinks the Obama administration was justified in retaliating Thursday against Russia with sanctions for interfering with U.S. institutions. But he said it should've been done long ago. Far from a full-throated endorsement of Obama's actions, Ryan's statement condemned the commander in chief for eight years of what he considers "ineffective foreign policy" that left the United States more vulnerable than it was when he took office in 2009. Nevertheless, Ryan agreed that...

    There aren’t many people like Michael Wear in today’s Democratic Party. The former director of Barack Obama’s 2012 faith-outreach efforts is a theologically conservative evangelical Christian. He is opposed to both abortion and same-sex marriage, although he would argue that those are primarily theological positions, and other issues, including poverty and immigration, are also important to his faith. During his time working for Obama, Wear was often alone in many of his views, he writes in his new book, Reclaiming Hope. He helped with faith-outreach strategies for Obama’s 2008 campaign, but was surprised when some state-level officials decided not to...

Fattah, 60, was sentenced last week to 10 years in prison on charges of fraud, bribery and money laundering after a jury convicted him on more than 20 counts. He has been ordered to report to prison by Jan. 25. Fattah had argued a Supreme Court ruling earlier this year that limits the legal definition of bribery would likely help his appeal, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. In his opinion, however, U.S. District Judge Harvey Bartle III...

Months later, the newly formed NASA began winnowing 500 test pilots down to the seven Mercury astronauts, presented to the public in April 1959. The ensuing year brought even more urgent curiosity: which nation would be the first to send a man on that first step toward the stars? In April 1961, another blow.

Mike Pence as president and vice president, said council President Bruce Kraus, a South Side Democrat. Kraus, who is gay, called conversion therapy “a form of soul murder.” “I think it's obvious if anyone has followed national news there's clearly been a change...

    Leslie Wimes, the president of the Democratic African-American women's caucus, joins MSNBC's Hallie Jackson to discuss the Clinton campaign being in "panic mode" about low voter enthusiasm in the black community. WIMES: When I said that in September that the enthusiasm level for African-Americans as far as Hillary Clinton's campaign was not there, I was right. They were wrong. They didn't want anyone to know they were in panic mode. HALLIE JACKSON, MSNBC: There is nothing she can do? WIMES: Oh, no. It's over now as far as the African-American community is concerned. She had time back then to get...

    CNN says it is "completely uncomfortable" with hacked emails showing former contributor and interim DNC chair Donna Brazile sharing questions with the Clinton campaign before a debate and a town hall during the Democratic primary, and has accepted her resignation. Hacked emails posted by WikiLeaks show Brazile, whose CNN contract was suspended when she became interim DNC chair over the summer, sharing with the Clinton campaign a question that would be posed to Hillary Clinton before the March CNN Democratic debate in Flint, and sharing with the campaign a possible question prior to a CNN town hall also in March....

    (CNN) Hillary Clinton's campaign is waging a full-out war on FBI Director James Comey in the final 10 days of the election. A day after Comey made the stunning announcement that the FBI is examining newly unveiled emails that appear to be "pertinent" to the now-closed investigation into Clinton's private server, top campaign officials unleashed a blistering attack on the FBI director, accusing him of being irresponsibly "light on facts" and "heavy on innuendo." On a conference call with reporters Saturday, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta accused Comey of failing to be "forthcoming with the facts." Podesta blasted both the...
