    Faced with a public health crisis spiraling further out of control as a result of his own governing failures, a maskless President Donald Trump ranted against the “left-wing mob,” “far-left fascism” and “cancel culture” in a disjointed speech delivered at an Independence Day celebration held at Mount Rushmore National Memorial on Friday night. “Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to defame our history,” Trump told a cheering crowd, most of whom also appeared to not be wearing masks. “Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders ... and unleash a wave of violent crime in our...
  • Seattle’s Democratic Mayor (Durkan) Just Gave Trump Exactly What He Wanted (Biden rally ends)

    SEATTLE - As suddenly as it appeared, the Capitol Hill Occupation Protest was gone. **SNIP** Durkan’s destruction of the CHOP was a reversal of her previous position. On June 12, when Trump accused her of letting anarchists take over the city, Durkan responded, “Seattle is fine. Don’t be so afraid of democracy.” But over the last few weeks, the CHOP had become increasingly controversial. While the daytime scene resembled a music festival or cultural event, the nights became more violent. Six shootings, two of them fatal, occurred in or near the zone in the last two weeks of June, a...

    Going into any relationship as a biracial woman, I know one thing: Any serious relationship will involve discussion of the issues of racism. That became even more crucial when I became serious with a white man. There were days I had lived as a Black woman that he would never live through or could imagine living through.
  • Politicians tell Trump to go back to the bunker after his threat to ‘take back’ Seattle

    President Trump threatened to “take back” Seattle from protesters, tweeting that “ugly anarchists must be stooped.” In response, state and local politicians told him to go back to his bunker beneath the White House; and keep out of local business. Earlier this week, Seattle police left the area and demonstrators took over, cordoning off several blocks they declared the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone”, now the site of peaceful protests. Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan said the police pullback was done “to proactively de-escalate interactions between protestors and law enforcement.” But Trump was unhappy with the move even though it at least...

    Five-time Major League Baseball All-Star Torii Hunter says there’s one team he never wanted to play for due to the racist abuse he had to endure from its fans when he was there as a visiting player. “I had a no-trade clause in everything I had not to go to Boston,” Hunter said on “Golic and Wingo” on ESPN Radio. Hunter, who played for the Twins, Angels and Tigers in an MLB career that spanned nearly two decades until he retired after the 2015 season, said he routinely heard racial epithets from some Red Sox fans. “I’ve been called the...

    There were two valuable lessons I learned in the process of “outing” Helen Thomas as a hater ten years ago today. The first was the importance of making sure what a post is accurate because it can ruin someone’s career (what I posted was correct, and it ruined Ms. Thomas’ career). The other lesson is that mainstream media will do and say anything to protect one of their own. They protected her ten years ago, and many of them are still protecting her. Lid took down Helen Thomas. My “association” with Helen Thomas began Friday, June 4th, 2010, when a...

    The Verizon-owned HuffPost over the weekend described the violent protests across the nation as an instance of “cop rage,” declaring “police violence nationwide” as rioters continue to engage in criminal activity, attacking officers and destroying businesses in their own communities. “Cop Rage: Police Violence Nationwide,” a header on the Verizon-owned media outlet read: The HuffPost, in a Sunday piece, declared that “police brutality was on full display” as violent protests enwrapped U.S. cities. Many of the protests — stretching from Santa Monica, California; to Tampa, Florida; to Indianapolis, Indiana — were characterized by Anfia-like displays of hatred and violence. Photos...

    Actress Kristin Davis opened up recently about her fear for the safety of her 5-year-old daughter, who is black, after Donald Trump’s Nov. 8 victory. A reported spike in hate crimes since Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the presidential election has raised concerns of a continued increase in racially motivated acts of violence. “I’m on the intense learning curve because I have to protect my child,” the “Sex and the City” star said in a “How I Got Over” interview with WNYC’s Rebecca Carroll. “I might have had the intellectual learning curve that we all hope and wish we...

    Robert Reich argued Trump is trying to boost his 2020 chances and “selling out Americans’ health to seal the deal.” Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich has broken down what he believes is President Donald Trump’s “lethal four-point plan” to boost his 2020 election chances by reopening the economy “at all costs” amid the coronavirus pandemic. The Clinton-era official explained in a video released on his YouTube channel Tuesday how Trump was trying to “remove income support, so people have no choice but to return to work,” “hide the facts” about testing for the contagion, “push a false narrative about ‘freedom’...

    Many gays with kids face the same challenges of straights with kids. How do you teach children morals? How do you get gum out of the dog’s hair? How do you teach children manners? How do you get your son or daughter into Harvard, Notre Dame, the Olympics or NBA Basketball? But a few of the challenges arise only in that particular environment of the gay man or men raising one or more straight sons. Boys grow up, and sometime between the period of cute adolescence and mature adulthood, there is that time when a son is a rebellious teenager....

  • Pro-Abortion Feminist: Pro-Life People Who Protect Babies From Abortions are “F—— Monsters”

    Several states are taking a stand on whether or not it’s “essential” to continue abortion during the coronavirus crisis. And so are many in the media. Their stance is no secret: abortion is “essential.” Pieces from Slate to the New York Times go so far as to suggest it’s even more necessary during a pandemic. And the politicians that are placing abortion on hold are “f****** monsters,” according to one Vice editor. That’s because, among their many reasons, they say that abortion is time-sensitive – and the lack of it endangers lives. Never mind that at least one life ends...

    President Donald Trump reportedly owns a stake in a company that produces hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malaria drug he has repeatedly touted as a coronavirus treatment even though his experts say there’s no strong evidence it works. Trump “has a small personal financial interest” in Sanofi, the French drugmaker that makes Plaquenil, the brand-name version of hydroxychloroquine, The New York Times reported Monday. In addition, Sanofi’s largest shareholders include a mutual fund company run by major Republican donor Ken Fisher, the paper said. Trump’s three family trusts, as of last year, each had investments in a mutual fund whose largest holding was...
  • Elizabeth Warren Could Never Escape The Baggage Of Being A ‘Female Candidate’

    Elizabeth Warren wasnÂ’t trying to be the first female president. She wanted to be president. She wanted to cut banks down to size and relieve student debt. Root out the corrupt influence of money in politics and go after monopolies. Warren didnÂ’t focus on how sheÂ’d be breaking a glass ceiling. She didnÂ’t shy away from her gender, but when she talked about feminism, it was most often centered on female organizers and the movements theyÂ’ve led throughout history. But Warren couldnÂ’t just run for president. At every step of the campaign, she was reminded that people still saw her...

    The veteran ABC news anchor on Friday endorsed the billionaire media mogul’s run for president, telling CNN’s Anderson Cooper he believed Bloomberg was the “best-suited” Democratic candidate to take on Donald Trump in November. But times had changed and he now felt compelled to act because “we are in the grip” of a “sick, ignorant man,” Donaldson explained. “He’s mean, he’s corrupt and if we don’t get this right, we may lose the things that have made this country the best place to live in the world and that shining city on the hill that Ronald Reagan used to talk...
