  • Inslee Floats Megan Rapinoe as Potential Secretary of State

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | 7/13/2019 | Camerone Cawthorne
    Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D.Idiot) said Saturday his first act as president will be asking World Cup champion and Donald Trump antagonist Megan Rapinoe to be the Secretary of State. Inslee was speaking at the liberal Netroots Nation conference in Philadelphia when he touted Rapinoe as someone who could unite the United States and other countries around the world. "President Trump has done a lot of damage to our international reputation through his approach to foreign policy. A Daily Kos user, Mr. Rochester, would like to hear more from you about what you might do differently in your approach to...
  • Biden tears into Republicans for threatening Supreme Court’s ‘reputation and legitimacy’

    Biden said the behavior of Republican members of the committee was “a degree of invective, blind rage, and brute partisanship that threatens not only the Senate and the Supreme Court — it threatens the basic faith in fairness and justice that binds this country together.” Calling Ford “courageous” and “credible” in detailing her allegations, Biden said she deserves to have the FBI conduct an investigation into the alleged incident.

  • CBS Deletes Robert De Niro’s ‘Offensive Language’ From Tony Awards Live Telecast ("F Trump!")

    Robert De Niro got a standing ovation at the Tony Awards for shouting “F— Trump” from the stage to the crowd at Radio City Music Hall. But viewers at home didn’t hear the expletive thanks to the 10-second delay CBS had on the live telecast and the quick reflexes of a CBS Program Practices executive monitoring the show back at the CBS Broadcast Center in New York. CBS confirmed that De Niro went off script in his remarks as he took the stage to introduce Bruce Springsteen’s performance on the Tony telecast. The CBS Program Practices executive monitoring the show...
  • Johnny Manziel sees first CFL action in Ticats exhibition loss to the Argos

    06/01/2018 7:44:25 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 10 replies
    Johnny Manziel completed 9-of-12 passes in his first appearance with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats but it was the Toronto Argonauts who cruised to the easy 36-18 victory at Tim Hortons Field in the exhibition opener for both teams. Manziel, 25, certainly didn’t look out of place but faced a Toronto defence minus most of its starters and Hamilton was very conservative in its play-calling. The six-foot, 210-pound Texan, who signed with the Ticats two weeks ago, directed five drives (22 plays) and was especially effective throwing on the run.

    Garth Brooks got emotional while performing a song for students taking part in March for Our Lives during his Inside Studio G weekly Facebook Live show on Monday. The country legend was shown a letter by Parkland, Florida, student Emma Gonzalez during the session for fans. Gonzalez is a student advocate and activist for gun control, who survived the fatal shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February.
  • Kasich Brags about Getting Elected at 30, Says “Big Guy” Will Say if He Should Run for Prez

    I try to like people, but John Kasich represents a real challenge. The guy really rubs me the wrong way. Somehow, in the midst of all the Tillerson-Pompeo talk, Kasich turned up on MSNBC this morning. Speaking of the special election in Pennsylvania today, Kasich bragged about having been elected to Congress at age 30. That, according to Kasich, makes 33-year old Dem candidate Conor Lamb “a little old.” Kasich made his 2020 strategy pretty clear, saying that the emergence of third parties “is more realistic than it’s ever been.” When host Stephanie Ruhle asked him flat out if he...

    If you really want to know how bad the Democratic bench is in terms of candidates and role models, just look at this Cosmopolitan piece about Wendy Davis and what she did after her devastating and catastrophic loss to Republican Greg Abbott—sorry, Gov. Abbott. She went to Costa Rica, drank margaritas with her family, but she said the loss hurt. At the same time, she goes on about how 2014 was not really an indicator concerning whether Texas was trending blue, and she lamented on how her filibuster of a late-term abortion bill allowed Republicans to label her “abortion Barbie.”...

    The media’s newest shiny anti-Trump personality, San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, made the most of her sudden wave of adulatory free publicity in a revealing interview during the latest edition of Univision’s weekly Al Punto program, proving our contention that, aside from a few dedicated correspondents (and local media on the island), there was very little interest in covering the aftermath of Hurricane María’s devastating run through Puerto Rico until a clear Trump-adverse political angle emerged. Belying her previous protestations that her criticisms have no political motive, in her interview with Jorge Ramos, Cruz was quick to weave her...

    During Politico’s “Off Message” podcast discussing his book “The Vanishing American Adult,” never-Trumper Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) said President Donald Trump “comes out of a reality TV world,” which gives him “lots of anxiety about whether or not that kind of world is really what we want for our kids.”

    Associated Press ^ | Feb 27, 2017 9:47 AM EST
    Former President George W. Bush said Monday “we all need answers” on the extent of contact between President Donald Trump’s team and the Russian government, and didn’t rule out the idea that a special prosecutor could be necessary to lead an investigation. The Republican also defended the media’s role in keeping world leaders in check, noting that “power can be addictive,” and warned against immigration policies that could alienate Muslims. “I am for an immigration policy that’s welcoming and upholds the law,” Bush told NBC’s “Today” show. Bush’s comments came after a prominent Republican in Congress, Rep. Darrell Issa of...

    Shia LaBeouf, Luke Turner and Nastja Säde Rönkkö, creators of the anti-Donald Trump “He Will Not Divide Us” exhibition, have relocated their project after it was shut down by New York’s Museum of the Moving Image earlier this month. In a joint statement posted on LaBeouf’s website, the trio called out the museum for its “lack of commitment to the project.” “On February 10, 2017, The Museum of the Moving Image abandoned HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US. Their evident lack of commitment to the project is damning,” the statement reads. “From the outset, the museum failed to address our concerns about the misleading framing...

    The 300,000 pennies the Cedar Bluff, Virginia man took to the DMV Wednesday morning to pay sales tax on two new cars weighed in at 1,600 pounds. A mature Holstein cow weighs about 1,500 pounds. See, Stafford had a bone to pick with the DMV. It wasn’t about agonizingly long lines or a bad picture on his driver’s license: It came down to 10 phone numbers. And Stafford ended up filing three lawsuits and spending at least $1,005 to give the DMV his 2 cents. One might feel bad for the Lebanon DMV employees, who chose to count the coins...

    Outgoing US Secretary State John Kerry expressed disappointment Sunday that his efforts over the past four years have not put an end to the construction of homes in Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria. Speaking at the Saban Forum, Kerry said that Israel is "heading to a place of danger" and that the chances for peace are eroding "by virtue of this continued settlement process." "I don't agree with him that settlements are not an obstacle to peace," Kerry said. "Let's not kid ourselves here– you can't just wipe it away by saying it doesn't have an impact. It has...

    I am a lifelong sportsman. I grew up in Texas, hunting with my Dad. I'm not sure if I learned how to ride a bike or shoot a gun first, but it was close either way. In addition to creating lifelong memories shooting and hunting with my father, I was educated on gun safety from a very early age. I was taught well, and became a very responsible gun owner and enjoyed sport shooting and hunting into my adult years. But then something started to change. I don't quite know what happened; it just seemed that firearms started becoming faster,...

    Obama is so concerned with what doesn't matter (himself) that he forgets he was elected to run a nation that benefits all Americans, not just secular elitists. History will not look favorably upon Barack, but at least we can look forward to looking at hundreds of his selfies which will eventually be turned into a book, ala Kim Kardashian.

    On Monday's Morning Joe, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough prompted hippie icon Graham Nash of Crosby, Stills, and Nash fame to promote his new song about the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Nash wildly contended that "what happened with...almost, the execution of Michael Brown, we had to say something."
