    Florida Democratic Party chairman Stephen Bittel is considering resigning following backlash from racially charged comments he made toward members of the legislative black caucus. The tension started at a Saturday fundraiser for the Florida Democratic Party, the Miami Herald reports. Bittel shortened the program by removing a segment in which state legislators would be recognized. Bittel referred to the anger from lawmakers over the snub as "childish." Bittel also said State Sen. Oscar Braynon (D.), a black legislator who expressed lawmakers' unhappiness to the chairman, was acting "like a three year old." After the dinner, white State Sen. Lauren Book...
  • Switzerland's Carbon Capture Plant Is a Giant Waste of Money(DOH!)

    On May 31, 2017 the world’s first commercial atmospheric carbon-capture plant opened for business in Hinwil, Switzerland. The plant, designed and operated by a Swiss company called Climeworks, is different from existing carbon-capture facilities because it filters carbon dioxide out of the ambient atmosphere using proprietary technology, rather than from industrial exhaust, which is quite common. Climeworks claims their facility will be able to remove 900 tons of carbon from the atmosphere every year. Furthermore, its modular design will allow it to be scaled up as the demand for carbon dioxide increases.
  • Terry McAuliffe: ‘We Lose 93 Million Americans a Day to Gun Violence’

    While speaking to reporters about the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) said now is not the time to talk gun control but we must admit “we lose 93 million Americans a day to gun violence.” McAuliffe said, “This is not what today is about, but there are too many guns on the street.” Speaking to reporters, he said, “We lose 93 million Americans a day to gun violence. I’ve long talked about this. Background checks, shutting down gun show loopholes. That’s not for today’s discussion, but it’s not just about politicians. We worry about this every day...

    As impeachment talk heats up in Washington, the four Democrats running to be California’s next governor are divided on whether Congress should launch an effort to impeach President Donald Trump. Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and Delaine Eastin, the former state superintendent of public instruction, said in response to inquiries from the Bay Area News Group that they believed Congress should begin impeachment proceedings against Trump.

    It had barely been a few hours after the Warriors won the NBA Finals when rumors began to fly that the returning champs had "unanimously" decided not to visit the White House to celebrate their win. The report was wrong, however, and shortly thereafter, the Warriors organization confirmed to various media members that the Warriors hadn't yet discussed visiting the White House. As a spokesperson said, "we have not received an invitation to the White House, but will make those decisions when and if necessary." Nevertheless, there are some people who would support a possible Warriors decision to skip a...

    In the wake of the Kathy Griffin severed-head fiasco, and the Central Park play depicting the assassination of President Trump, you’d think that pundits might have the good sense to lay off metaphors invoking the violent death of the president. But today comes law prof Jonathan Turley with yet another sanguinary simile. Appearing on Morning Joe to discuss President Trump’s executive order on travel, Turley suggested that President Trump’s tweets on the subject are undermining his case. Then Turley went there: “it’s like a presidential version of death by cop. Every time you seem to make advances, the president seems...

    Warren calls for Sessions to be fired © Greg Nash Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is calling for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to be fired, comments that come on the eve of his testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee. "He needs to be fired. He needs to be taken out of that job," Warren told “The Axe Files,” a joint podcast between CNN and the University of Chicago Institute of Politics that is hosted by Democratic strategist David Axelrod. Warren cited Sessions's acknowledgment earlier this year that he had two meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak that he failed to disclose...

    Leading Democratic Party donor Tom Steyer is asking lawmakers to begin the impeachment process for President Trump.Steyer, whose superPAC NextGen Climate Action poured about $100 million into the 2016 election, penned a letter Friday to Congress persuading them that Trump had obstructed justice and asking them to begin the impeachment process.    In the letter, Steyer argues that the “clear and undisputed facts about Mr. Trump’s attempt to impede an FBI investigation demand an immediate impeachment inquiry by the House of Representatives.”   The letter was first reported by The Huffington Post. According to Steyer, Trump’s alleged interference into the investigation of his...

    According to People, Stewart’s attendance was highlighted by Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. Gross said Stewart had approached him with an idea about a new way to push gun control and that he was “impressed” by her proposal. He said, “She came to us because she has something she wants to do with this issue. She eagerly shared her idea and without hesitation and is showing up tonight. She is committed to actually doing something, not just lending her name.” While no specifics were given about Stewart’s gun control idea, People reports that it...

    Two months ago, we reported on Morning Joe going “Crazy over Trump’s Mental Health.” The show was back on that beat today, with two variations on the theme. First, panel members were able to cite a Wall Street Journal editorial harshly criticizing President Trump for his tweeting habits, describing him as a person “with a propensity for self-destructive behavior [who] can’t seem to help” himself and who is his own “most effective opponent.” That same Wall Street Journal editorial reports that a recent Trump Twitter burst came in response to a Morning Joe segment on the immigration executive order. Second,...

    "I call for the arrest of Jared Kushner. Now. " — Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) May 31, 2017 Keith Olbermann called for the "immediate arrest of Jared Kushner" in a video posted on Twitter Wednesday, saying there was ample evidence to implicate the president's son-in-law and adviser in the ongoing probes into Russian election interference. “I call for the immediate arrest of Jared Kushner. If he should not be suspected of money laundering, racketeering and influence peddling, then he should be suspected of obstruction of justice and espionage and possibly worse,” Olbermann, who has his own GQ web show, said....

    What do you do about a problem like covfefe? That word from President Trump's late tweet set Twitter ablaze overnight, sparking jokes and quasi-definitions of what seems to have been a typo. The covfefe kerfuffle is a new reminder that we're living in a unique political era: even the words are brand new.The tweet — "Despite the constant negative press covfefe" — was retweeted and liked more than 100,000 times after it was posted around midnight Tuesday night. It was deleted around 6 a.m. Wednesday, but by then, the typo had become a word, with a rapidly evolving life of...

    Tuesday at a discussion hosted by the Commonwealth Club, Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that it was “hard” for her to say the words “President Trump.” When Pelosi referenced “the new president of the United States,” the moderator said, “I noticed you don’t say President Trump.” Pelosi replied, “It’s hard.”
  • Maxine Waters: The Left’s Best Against Donald Trump?

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Ca.) said there is something “tragically wrong” with President Donald Trump. His advisers and friends are “a bunch of scumbags.” He is creating “chaos and division.” But “we can’t wait” for the next election since “He will have destroyed the country by then.” So he must be impeached. Now. Of course Rep. Waters believes something is wrong with President Trump. He’s a Republican. Actually, what she said about him is tame compared to what she said about then-House Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor: “These are demons” who are “destroying this country.” Of course,...

    Sunday on MSNBC’s “Am Joy,” while discussing the new lead Africa-American character on latest Star Trek series “Discovery,” actor George Takei of “Star Trek” fame called President Donald Trump a “troll,” and added that he though Trump was “as foolish and as uninformed and as ignorant as these trolls.” George Takei said, “Today in this society, we have alien life forms that we call trolls and these trolls carry on without knowing what they’re talking about and knowing even less about the history of what they’re talking about and some of these trolls go on to be presidents of nations.”...

    While Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has been peddling odd conspiracy theories, rehashing the unfounded allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians, and calling for President Trump’s impeachment, one of her colleagues, Rep. Al Green (D-TX), is actually working on such articles to be filed against the president (via Circa): .@RepAlGreen: “We will move forward, and as a matter of fact, I am currently crafting, drafting if you will, articles of impeachment.”— CSPAN (@cspan) May 23, 2017 Green did not say whether he would file a privileged resolution for impeachment. Such a resolution would have to be considered...

    WATERS: I don’t know what the reticent is but I know this, that the American public is getting weary of all of these actions without enough being done by the elected officials who they elected to represent them. I believe that this man has done enough for us to determine that we can connect the dots, that we can get the facts that will lead to impeachment. I believe there was collusion. I think we have enough information about the meetings, the about the lying about those meetings to help us to understand that something was going on. There was...

    Former Navy SEAL Carl Higbie urged pop singer Katy Perry to try holding a concert in Syria if she wants to “hug it out” with Islamic terrorists. Higbie, appearing as a guest on Fox News Thursday, said, “Go to hell, Katy Perry. Hold one of your concerts in Syria and see how that goes.” The ex-Navy SEAL was responding to Perry’s recent interview Tuesday on the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show in which the singer made a plea for people to “co-exist” and to remove “barriers” and “borders” after the Manchester, U.K. Islamic terrorist attack that took the lives...

    Hillary Clinton came out of the woods to deliver another vicious anti-Trump speech Friday afternoon and the media couldn’t get enough of it. Clinton was delivering the commencement address at her alma mater Wellesley College, and both MSNBC and CNN took precious time out from their endless Russia conspiracy coverage to gush over the failed presidential candidate’s “fiery” “takedown” of our president. Immediately after the speech was over, MSNBC and CNN were ready with gushy praise for the “feisty” Clinton. MSNBC immediately cut to Andrea Mitchell once Clinton had finished her speech, who asked, “Where was this speechwriter in 2016?”...
