    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is driving young Muslims "closer to the terrorists," said actress and feminist icon Jane Fonda. Ms. Fonda, 78, appeared Sunday night at the Women's Equality and ERA Coalition's "Night of Comedy" in Manhattan, accusing Mr. Trump of "fanning the flames of people's anxieties and racism," the New York Daily News reported. "It's terrible and it's dangerous," Ms. Fonda said. "Even if he doesn't make it, which I don't think he will, the fact that he's said the things he's said about Muslims for example,...

    The DNC’s planned coronation of Hillary Clinton as the Democrats’ 2016 nominee has pretty much gone off the rails at this point, with far too many voters refusing to toe the line and the pesky FBI inserting doubts in the hearts of the faithful. You may recall that, at least until now, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has been holding the line, insisting that her paltry schedule of six debates (four before Iowa) was sufficient and would keep the voters informed. Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley and some big names in her base have called out the obvious ploy and been screaming...

    The campaigns of Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders have reportedly agreed to four additional debates, including one Thursday in New Hampshire before the state's Feb. 9 primary. However, both camps said the agreement was not final and that Democratic National Committee had yet to give its OK. The committee has not agreed to debates beyond the original four sanctioned ones, amid complaints from Sanders and other Democrats that Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schulz, Florida, has limited the schedule to protect the front-running Clinton. But in recent days, Clinton has urged the party to add the televised...

    We will start by admitting this: It's not immediately clear what makes for a top-notch chair of a major political party in the super PAC era. Is it the ability to raise big sums of money or skillfully lob bombs at the other party? Is crafting a successful strategy and tactics to expand the party's representation and voter base? Is it the willingness to put in one of those let's-get-this-debate-party-started performances like the one Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus delivered Thursday night (complete with the dubious claim that the GOP is the party of diversity)?

But once again, thanks to the Democratic National Committee"s schedule, debate viewership will not be even close to what it could have been. **SNIP** But not only will this debate air at 9 p.m. on Sunday, in the middle of a three day weekend, but it will also run during National Football League playoff games and - dare we say - a new episode of PBS's popular series, "Downton Abbey."

    While the Trumps spent nearly $50,000 to elect congressional Democrats, they donated only $1,000 to the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRSC). But perhaps the worst outcome that election for Republicans was that Pelosi and Reid became Speaker of the House and Senate Majority Leader, respectively. The pair made a formidable team and did heavy lifting to ensure that Obama was elected in 2008 and that much of his agenda — including Obamacare — was put in place.

    Generally, when you see criticism of DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz cropping up, it’s coming from Republicans and conservatives. And why not? There’s plenty of fertile ground for going after her. But this month she’s facing an uprising on her own left flank. As the Daily Caller reports, supporters of Bernie Sanders have started a petition drive trying to oust the Florida congresswoman from her perch just as the primary voting is about to begin. In just five days, nearly 27,000 people have signed a progressive advocacy group's petition calling on the Democratic National Committee to remove its chairwoman, Rep. Debbie...

Reporters speculated that Hillary, Bill and Caitlin Jenner were having a proverbial pissing contest on a Bernie Sanders' urinal target. The delay, however, was actually due to a group of college students who were emotionally agitated that their safe spot had been usurped by the candidates' port-a-potty, and they were further aggrieved at having been microaggressed by the candidates' hostile tone of voice and aggressive debate tactics.Hillary became visibly annoyed after Sanders...

    DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz got hit with a very simple question from a reporter with the Media Research Center, a question most people with a conscience could easily answer. Given three opportunities, however, Wasserman-Schultz couldnt bring herself to respond. The reporter wanted to know if she considered her three children to be human beings before birth. The pro-abortion Democrat couldnt say, but in not answering, provided a unique insight into what abortion supporters think about children that are 16, 18, 20, 24 weeks old, etc.

    Democratic National Committee vice chairwoman Tulsi Gabbard said she has been disinvited from the Tuesday Democratic presidential debate after comments she made on MSNBC calling for more debates, The New York Times reports. While Gabbard said she was disinvited, an anonymous source close to the DNC told The New York Times that Gabbard was not disinvited, but was told to reconsider going because she could be a distraction. Gabbard disputes the claim that she would be a distraction to the debate. "It's very dangerous when we have people in positions of leadership who use their power to try to quiet...

    Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz dodged questions on Sunday about whether Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders's description of himself as a "socialist" would hurt the Democratic Party. Sanders, an independent Vermont senator, has stunned political watchers as he's gained on Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in the polls. His populist campaign rhetoric has tapped into the base of the Democratic Party's uneasiness with Clinton's candidacy. "He is a self-identified socialist," CNN's Dana Bash asked Wasserman Schultz, a representative from Florida. "If he is your party's nominee, would that social label hurt the Democratic Party's chances of winning the White...

    As if rapper Kanye Wests ego needed a boost, now he can say that President Obama opened for him Saturday at the Warfield Theatre in San Francisco. The two men never shared the stage during the fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee.
