    Never one to miss a chance to slam President Donald Trump, Lawrence O’Donnell -- host of The Last Word, a weeknight program on MSNBC -- called the Republican occupant of the White House “the laziest, most ignorant president in history.” Of course, he had an entirely different opinion of former Democratic President Barack Obama, who “never once said something like this in the crusade to get that thing passed because he knew how to stay with it and get it passed.” The liberal host began the discussion by criticizing the American Health Care Act, the House GOP bill intended to...

    Delusional David Gergen: Trump’s First 100 Days ‘Worst We’ve Ever Seen’ 3 shares David Gergen is clearly having trouble with reality. After the Republican ObamaCare repeal bill was pulled, the CNN analyst on Friday insisted that Donald Trump’s first 100 days are the “worst we’ve ever seen.” The worst? Worse than William Henry Harrison who died before his first 100 days were completed? Worse than Lincoln having to deal with secession in his first 100 days and being assassinated in the second 100 days? Worse that John Kennedy with the Bay of Pigs debacle? Gergen began, “A lot of presidents...
  • The Intractable Left and Why

    03/23/2017 8:20:27 AM PDT · by Bua ar la · 9 replies
    A question I often ask myself is why is the left so intractable and unwilling to budge on any point of contention. Everything we hear from the left is generally put forth as a talking point and one messenger on the left sounds exactly the same as the next. The logical next question is, "do you actually listen you yourselves, and do you not see (hear) the obvious disconnect your words have with reality. We are the party of tolerance, except when conservatives are concerned, we can't tolerate anything from you. Everything, everything they say is mutually exclusive. So I...

    President Donald Trump signed legislation Tuesday adding human exploration of Mars to NASA’s mission. Could sending Congress into space be next? Flanked at an Oval Office bill-signing ceremony by astronauts and lawmakers, Trump observed that being an astronaut is a “pretty tough job.” He said he wasn’t sure he’d want it and, among lawmakers he put the question to, Sen. Ted Cruz said he wouldn’t want to be a space traveler, either. But Cruz, R-Texas, offered up a tantalizing suggestion. “You could send Congress to space,” he said to laughter, including from the president. […] “What a great idea that...

"I feel even more so that everyone should ban her," Brzezinski told Variety magazine in reference to her February announcement that Conway would no longer be booked on "Morning Joe."

It's unknown if Waters was referring to a specific reason to impeach Trump or was just making a general statement. The tweet comes a day after FBI Director James Comey revealed the bureau is looking into any possible contacts between Trump's campaign and the Russian influence campaign on the presidential campaign. The intelligence community has reported in the past The Kremlin worked against Hillary Clinton's election and developed a preference for Trump.

Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Houston, said that President Donald Trump's repeated claims he was wire tapped by former President Barack Obama could provide grounds for impeachment if a Monday hearing with the FBI director does not produce evidence to substantiate the allegation. James Comey is scheduled to testify before the U.S. House Intelligence Committee Monday, and Jackson Lee said she expects lawmakers to demand an answer on whether the president had grounds for accusing his predecessor of a crime. The president tweeted on March 4 to his nearly 27 million followers he had "just found out that Obama had...

    WASHINGTON (AP) – at 12:15pm today President Trump disclosed that he has reached an agreement with Enrique Peńa Nieto, President of Mexico, which provides for the sale of substantially all of the State of California to the country of Mexico. President Trump noted that this deal, which he claims “is his YUGEst real estate deal ever” is a win-win for everyone involved. The two billionaires, who have clashed in the past, set aside their differences and negotiated the deal in which Mexico will pay for the wall, in exchange for the State of California.

    The media is no fan of Donald Trump. Can you blame them? Donald Trump has STUMPED them at every turn! They said he wasn't serious about running, he couldn't win the primary, he couldn't win the general, but he just keeps WINNING. He's not letting up on them either. He's bringing jobs back, securing our borders, and protecting us from Muslim extremists. He's doing all of this while the media actively tries to sabotage, demean, and diminish everything he says. This story via KnightsTemplar is a perfect allegory for how the media covers Trump. How would they cover Trump performing...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan fired a warning shot Thursday at Republican senators who have been critical of his health-care plan, saying he has not heard directly from them but noting that they will get their chance to amend the Obamacare repeal and replace legislation. The House legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act faces a steep climb in the lower chamber, though a vote is still expected to happen sometime next week. The bill passed the Budget Committee narrowly Thursday, with three conservative Republicans voting against it. Leaders are searching for ways to fix the bill to placate...

The 1995 tax records, never before disclosed, reveal the extraordinary tax benefits that Mr. Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, derived from the financial wreckage he left behind in the early 1990s through mismanagement of three Atlantic City casinos, his ill-fated foray into the airline business and his ill-timed purchase of the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan....

The incident took place the day after International Women's Day on Wednesday, not long after the statue's installation. The picture was shared on Facebook by an eyewitness who said the unidentified man stood behind the new installation and began simulating sexual intercourse with the statue. Alexis Kaloyanides, who posted the picture, described the man as the reason the world needed feminism.

The graphic, which was posted to the WPVI meteorologist’s Twitter profile but has since been deleted, featured what appeared to be a typical weather map with purple and gray bands depicting projected snowfall amounts — except the bands were labeled with the number bottles of wine to purchase — ranging from one all the way to 25. Much of the Northeast, including Philadelphia, is expected to be slammed by a late winter snowstorm. The graphic’s banner read “How much wine to buy today?” Apparently the gag didn’t...

Though the first daughter divested herself from her eponymous brand in January, a wave of high profile news surrounding the label – including calls for boycotts – combined with full-throated support of the brand from the White House made the sales of Ivanka-brand items more political than ever. Abigail Klem, who took over as president of the fashion label after the election, confirmed the company’s rapid growth online since last...

If national Democrats are now trying to find ways to co-exist with it rather than smack it down, they deserve to be called on it. Whether anyone will look is an entirely different matter.
