    House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday fended off a challenge to her long leadership reign, defeating Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) in a closed-door vote prompted largely by Donald Trump’s unlikely ascension to the White House. Pelosi got 134 votes to Ryan's 63 — winning 68 percent of the votes after declaring before the election that she had the support of two-thirds of the caucus. The victory sends a message that while there's a growing appetite for major changes in the party's leadership structure and messaging tactics, it's not strong enough to loosen Pelosi's grip on a liberal-heavy group...

  • Source: The Rolling Stones Were Invited to Play the Inauguration In September — By the Democrats

    Last week, a source to Digital Music News leaked that the Rolling Stones had been invited to play the Presidential Inauguration. Now, it appears that the invitation came months ago, and it didn’t come from the Trump Administration. We’re now getting a better idea on just how cocky the Democratic Party was heading into Election Day. According to a connected source disclosing details with Digital Music News over the weekend, it now appears that the Rolling Stones were invited to play the Inauguration back in September. But the invitation looks like it came from the Democratic Party, Clinton campaign, or...

    President Obama has described Donald Trump as ignorant, dangerous and unfit to lead the nation, but he’ll ask the Republican president-elect Thursday not to wipe out his cherished, legacy-making executive actions on everything from the Iranian nuclear deal to Obamacare. In a meeting at the White House to prepare Mr. Trump for taking office, Mr. Obama will try to persuade the president-elect to honor what his aides call a “tradition” of preserving executive actions implemented by the departing chief executive. “There is a tradition, particularly with regard to executive agreements of successive presidents preserving some element of continuity,” said White...

    Actress Susan Sarandon on Thursday tore into the Democratic National Committee (DNC), calling it "completely corrupt." “After my experience in the primary, it’s very clear to me the DNC is gone,” she told CNN's Carol Costello. “Every superdelegate is a lobbyist. The way that the system is set up in terms of trying of having superdelegates — you could win a state and not get the delegates. It’s crazy.” Sarandon backed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for the Democratic nomination. She said she still respects Sanders even though he endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. "Look, Bernie has said ‘don’t ever listen...

    It is emblematic of the topsy-turvy world of contemporary Catholicism that Bishop Robert Barron is now considered one of the faith's top apologists. I cannot imagine how any apologist could be less effective at evangelizing or converting anyone, or less effective at persuading potential apostates to reconsider leaving the faith. Here are some of the Bishop's most well-known snippets: 1. While there may be a hell, there's a good chance that it is empty. Whatever you do, you'll probably be saved anyway. 2. The Crusades were wrong. 3. Many of the most famous stories in the Bible are not literally...

But at the same time, Mr. Obama forgave scores of gun crimes convictions for the offenders, raising thorny questions about whether the White House...

Obama said the motive behind Sunday’s killing of three officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was still unknown. It was the latest in a string of deadly incidents involving law enforcement, including the police shooting of a black man in Baton Rouge and the killing of five officers in Dallas. “We as a nation have to be loud and clear that nothing justifies attacks on law enforcement,” Obama said in...

    Former Mexican President Felipe Calderon on Saturday joined his predecessor in office in unloading on Donald Trump, calling the Republican front-runner's campaign racist and saying his discourse on immigration is fueling anti-American sentiment around the world. Calderon, a conservative who was president of Mexico from 2006 to 2012, even said he thought Trump was trying to exploit the same social feelings and resentments as did Adolf Hitler. "I think his logic of exalting white supremacy isn't even acting against immigration - Donald Trump is the descendant of migrants - it is acting and speaking against immigrants who have a different...

    When Marco Rubio attacked Donald Trump on the debate stage this week for using undocumented Polish workers to build Trump Tower, the developer shrugged it off. "He brings up something from 30 years ago," Trump shot back. "It worked out very well. Everybody was happy." But a look into the history of the Trump Tower, the crown jewel of the real-estate mogul's empire, reveals the beginnings of the 68-story building were, in fact, rooted in the back-breaking labor of 150-odd Polish immigrants — most working illegally, some without full pay. "It's constructed on the blood, sweat and tears of the...

    WASHINGTON -- Senate Democrats are attacking the Republican leadership for having the gall to suggest that any action to fill the Supreme Court's vacancy be put off until next year. Republicans argue that the nation is embroiled in a politically divisive presidential election. It would be an unfair end run around the will of the people to allow a lame duck president to fill the vacancy with a lifetime position that would likely turn the high court in a sharply leftist direction, perhaps for many years to come. With our nation preparing to vote in a little more than eight...

    'And he's got an awfully big wall at the Vatican, I will tell you.' Trump reiterated his months-long contention that 'we're going to build a wall, and Mexico's going to pay for the wall. And that's the way it is.' When Cooper reminded Trump that 'people do come and go through the Vatican, and it's open to tourists,' Trump pounced. 'They're going to come and go through the wall' he will erect on America's southern border, he said, 'but they're going to come and go legally. And that's what I want, and that's what a lot of people want, obviously.'...

    Pope Francis refused Thursday to condemn Italy's attempts to introduce gay unions legislation, which have polarized public opinion and are being resisted by the national Catholic Church. Catholic-majority Italy is the last Western European nation with no laws on same-sex partnerships. It has been urged to change the status quo by both its constitutional court and the European Court of Human Rights. "The Pope does not meddle with Italian politics," Francis said in an in-flight press conference returning from Mexico. "Because the Pope belongs to everybody, he cannot enter the concrete, domestic politics of a country. This is not the...
