  • Ocasio-Cortez Suggests Ditching Columbus Day For Election Day Holiday

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the incoming U.S. representative from New York City, has an idea that could make voting easier: Take Columbus Day off the federal holiday list and replace it with Election Day. In a tweet Saturday, the progressive Democrat wondered why Columbus Day is a federal holiday while Election Day, when we engage in perhaps our most important civic duty, is not. Columbus Day, after all, celebrates a man who never actually set foot in what is now the United States and who certainly did not “discover” America. Daily Mail editor David Martosko tried to make a joke about Ocasio-Cortez...

    U.S. Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., lashed out at Republicans via Twitter on Sunday night, accusing the GOP of “drooling” in anticipation of the 29-year-old’s every misstep. “Maybe instead of Republicans drooling over every minute of footage of me in slow-mo, waiting to chop up word slips that I correct in real-tomd (sic),” she wrote, “they [should] actually step up enough to make the argument they want to make: that they don’t believe people deserve a right to healthcare.” She later tweeted a correction on the spelling of “real-time. It was the latest in a series of complaints the socialist political...
  • I served under eight commanders in chief. Trump doesn’t grasp the role.

    For Trump, trouble began on several of these fronts before he was even in office. He dismissed the service and sacrifice of Sen. John McCain and, by implication, all those who had suffered as prisoners of war. “He’s not a war hero,” Trump said while campaigning in Iowa. “I like people who weren’t captured.” He engaged in a back-and-forth with Khizr and Ghazala Khan, Gold Star parents whose son, Army Capt. Humayun Khan, died in combat.

All of the women – who came in all sizes, races, and sexualities – posed with nothing but a ballot placed on their private parts in an homage to the #MeToo movement. “With the #Metoo and #Wetoo movements and recent confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh there is much at stake in the upcoming elections,” said the group in its mission statement. “We are here to show the country these recent...

    Emily West, whose father is a Republican candidate for the Missouri State House, is telling voters not to support her dad on Election Day, according to The Kansas City Star. “I can’t imagine him being in any level of government,” she told the newspaper, referring to Steve West, 64, on Monday. Steve West made headlines over the summer for previous anti-Semitic, racist and homophobic comments he made online that came to light, including one in which he said “Hitler was right” about who was “behind” the events taking place in Germany before World War II. “A lot of his views...

    Nevada sales tax is avg 6.85%. Medical items are exempt, except feminine hygiene products needed monthly (tampons and pads) by 49.5% of population in Nevada. This would make the items tax exempt saving women money every month.

    The Left and our good, sweet, sincere friends in the media spent most of Saturday after the tragic shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue trying to find a way to blame Trump for the monster who killed 11 innocent people and wounded six others. Even though the gunman reportedly hated Trump and blamed him for supporting the Jewish people, somehow, someway Trump was labeled an anti-Semite. We know, it's stupid.

    The media starlet and New York congressional candidate, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, has, like, something to say. During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday night, those things were “like,” “yeah,” and also, “um, for sure.” Ocasio-Cortez is from New York, but sounded like a character from “Clueless.” Throughout the interview, she repeatedly used Valley girl filler words such as “like” and “yeah, yeah.” In about three minutes of speaking, Ocasio Cortez said “like” 11 times, “yeah” 20 times, and “for sure” three times. While telling a story of a couple she met at a Cracker Barrel that apparently supported her...
  • Elizabeth Warren might have actually made things worse with her DNA gambit

    (CNN)Twenty-four hours after Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren shocked the political world with a five-minute video (and a mountain of documentation) aimed at putting to bed the controversy over her claims of Native American heritage, it's becoming increasingly clear the strategy amounts to a swing and a miss. Warren's goal was to take the issue of her heritage off the table for nervous Democrats and to show that she was ready, willing and able to stand up to President Donald Trump if and when the time came that she was the party's nominee against him in 2020. The problem is that,...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | October 15, 2018 | The Editors
    Any doubt that Elizabeth Warren plans to run for President ended Monday when the Massachusetts Senator released a DNA analysis indicating that she probably does have some trace of distant Native American ancestry. The former Harvard professor went so far as to unveil a website and video featuring an analysis by Stanford professor Carlos Bustamante, who said that while Ms. Warren is mainly European she likely has some Native American ancestry “in the range of 6-10 generations ago.” This makes her between 1/64th and 1/1024th Native American, which barely spares her the humiliation of not having any after she had...

    President Obama's former campaign manager on Monday sharply criticized Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren for releasing the results of a disputed DNA test that she said backed up her claims of Native American ancestry. He claimed she was throwing her party off-message just weeks before November's critical midterm elections. "Argue the substance all you want, but why 22 days before a crucial election where we MUST win house and senate to save America, why did @SenWarren have to do her announcement now?" former President Barack Obama's 2012 campaign manager, Jim Messina, tweeted. "Why can’t Dems ever stay focused???" added Messina,...

    As Democrats campaign for the Nov. 6 midterm elections, they have plenty of legitimate criticisms to level at President Trump and Republicans who control the House and Senate. But Democrats were hurt in recent days by amazing and disgusting comments made by Hillary Clinton and former Attorney General Eric Holder. As a Democrat, I want my party to win as many seats as possible in the House and Senate and to capture as many governorships and other state offices as it can. But the Clinton and Holder remarks do not advance that effort – they hurt it. Former Secretary of...

    I yelled at my husband last night. Not pick-up-your-socks yell. Not how-could-you-ignore-that-red-light yell. This was real yelling. This was 30 minutes of from-the-gut yelling. Triggered by a small, thoughtless, dismissive, annoyed, patronizing comment. Really small. A micro-wave that triggered a hurricane. I blew. Hard and fast. And it terrified me. I’m still terrified by what I felt and what I said. I am almost 70 years old. I am a grandmother. Yet in that roiling moment, screaming at my husband as if he represented every clueless male on the planet (and I every angry woman of 2018), I announced that...

    Executives at ABC now believe that their decision to fire Roseanne Barr from their revival of Roseanne was a mistake and the network’s spin-off series The Conners may flop, according to a report from Mail Online. Two senior executives at the network told the outlet that ABC President Channing Dungey’s decision to immediately fire the actress and cancel her show after she made racially charged comments about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett was a “knee-jerk” decision that they would later regret. “We didn’t think it through properly. What Roseanne did was wrong but we shouldn’t have rushed to fire her....

    "My name is Alyssa Milano, and I do not have equal rights under our Constitution. I have a three-year-old daughter named Bella. She does not have equal rights under the Constitution, either." This is how I began my testimony at a Congressional shadow hearing on the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) just a few months ago. At that point, I didn't think it could be possible to feel more urgency about insisting that women be protected in our government's highest legal document, the US Constitution. I was wrong. Now, as I watch Brett Kavanaugh's likely ascension to the Supreme Court, it...

    [SNIP] Schumer and Ratajkowski were arrested. The latter, a model and actress, tweeted about her arrest and included a photo of herself at the protest holding a sign that read, “Respect female existence or expect our resistance.” Similar to how Alyssa Milano was shamed for her outfit at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last week, Ratajkowski’s clothing, instead of her message, garnered the most attention by Kavanaugh supporters. ... From comments like “put on a bra,” surprisingly coming from a woman, and “Sorry I was focused on something else, can you say that again?” it is clear that these vocal...

    Has American political life become permanently … boofed? Ohio Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse declared today that he has somehow cracked Brett Kavanaugh’s calendar code to discover the date of Christine Blasey Ford’s victimization at his hands. In the Judiciary Committee meeting, Whitehouse highlighted a calendar entry listing a July 1 party as evidence that “may” corroborate Ford’s testimony:
