    Rep. Maxine Waters is not happy with her Democratic Party peers. The California congresswoman who called for Americans to “scream” in the streets for President Trump to be impeached told supporters Thursday that she’s tired of colleagues who can only manage to “whisper.” “Unfortunately, many Members of Congress whisper the President should be impeached but have not supported my call for impeachment,” she tweeted. “Only a few of us dare to continue to urge both Dems and Repubs to impeach this dangerous president. I will keep trying. The public needs to demand!” Ms. Waters‘ remarks come in the wake of...

    The scandal-plagued U.S. bank Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) is "too big to manage," a top U.S. lawmaker told CEO Tim Sloan at a hearing Tuesday in Washington. Maxine Waters, a Democratic congresswoman who heads the U.S. House of Representatives' Financial Services Committee, said at the hearing that Wells Fargo is blighted by "ongoing lawlessness and failure to right the ship." Waters represents a district in southern California, where some of the San Francisco-based bank's alleged customer abuses first emerged. It was the first time Sloan has appeared before the House panel since Democrats took control of the chamber following...

Fynn Ajani Arthur, a 21-year-old from Brunswick, Maine, was charged with two counts of malicious destruction of property on Thursday night in Baltimore County. His arrest came after graffiti aimed at black and Latino students was found on the second floor of a campus dorm, one floor above where similar graffiti had been found on November 14, Goucher College administrators said in a statement. Both incidents that shook the Towson campus involved backward...

    **SNIP** "Capitalism is an ideology of capital the most important thing is the concentration of capital and to seek and maximize profit," Ocasio-Cortez said. And that comes at any cost to people and to the environment, she said, "so to me capitalism is irredeemable." Although she said she doesn't think all parts of capitalism should be abandoned, "we're reckoning with the consequences of putting profit above everything else in society. And what that means is people can't afford to live. For me, it's a question of priorities and right now I don't think our model is sustainable." Instead of conservative...

    (CNSNews.com) - Sen. Cory Booker sent out a Tweet on Saturday night that transgenders who serve in the U.S. military are heroes and that President Donald Trump’s policy of banning transgenders from the military is a national security threat. Booker’s Tweet was linked to a Tweet by the Human Rights Campaign that featured a video of transgender former service members speaking about their experiences in the military. “Transgender servicemembers are heroes, just like all other servicemembers risking their lives for their country,” Booker said in his Tweet. “President Trump’s effort to ban them doesn’t just fly in the face of...

    Fox News contributor laments 'witches' brew of outright lies and distortion'Juan Williams is worried that a Shakespearean tragedy awaits the nation in 2020 if President Trump loses his re-election bid. The fictional witches in “Macbeth” chanted “double, double toil and trouble; fire burn and caldron bubble” as they worked their magic, but the Fox News analyst says Mr. Trump has a “witches’ brew” that is legitimately dangerous. “It is no longer outside the realm of possibility that Trump could refuse to leave if he loses the 2020 election,” Mr. Williams warned in an op-ed for The Hill on Monday. “And...

    Johnny Manziel’s comeback has come to an abrupt end. The Montreal Alouettes released a statement on Wednesday announcing that Manziel, 26, had been cut from the team following a directive by the Canadian Football League (CLA) to terminate his contract. The league alleges that Manziel “contravened the agreement which made him eligible to play.” “We are disappointed by this turn of events. Johnny was provided a great deal of support by our organization, in collaboration with the CFL, but he has been unable to abide by the terms of his agreement,” General Manager Kavis Reed said in a statement. “We...

    Rep. Maxine Waters feels sorry for broke millennials. In fact, the California representative seemed to go so far as to apologize to the younger generation for their economic situation during a speech Friday. “Millennials say, ‘We have done everything you told us to do, only to find out we can’t get a job. And when we get a job it’s not worth going to work every day because of the pay that is offered to us,’” she told the audience at the Rainbow Coalition Wall Street Project Economic Summit at the Sheraton Hotel in Midtown. Democrat Waters — who has...

    Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein pulled rank Friday when a group of kids tried to school her on climate change. After the group sought her support for the Green New Deal, the 85-year-old senior senator from California let them know she wasn't about to be bossed around by a bunch of youngsters. "You know what’s interesting about this group?," Feinstein said, in an interaction that was captured on video. "I’ve been doing this for 30 years. I know what I’m doing.

    Last Friday, my mentions died for your sins. I posted a screen grab of Riley Roberts’s House Microsoft Outlook card, including his official house.gov email address, office phone number, and his designation as “Staff”. Roberts is the boyfriend of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The Congresswoman was upset. Throwing caution to the wind, she stormed into my mentions, asserting this was just a way to give Mr. Roberts access to her official calendar.

    RALEIGH, N.C. — A key witness testified Monday that she engaged in fraudulent and illegal activity involving absentee ballots in a congressional race in North Carolina as part of a get-out-the vote operation to benefit the Republican congressional candidate in a race that is still unresolved. In frank testimony before the North Carolina State Board of Elections, Lisa Britt said that she was paid to collect absentee ballots in the 2018 election by McCrae Dowless, a political operative hired by consultants for Republican congressional candidate Mark Harris. Britt said some of the ballots she collected were unsealed and uncompleted and...

    National Review ^ | February 15, 2019 | by Rich Lowry
    The day has arrived in the Democratic party when Sherrod Brown is a kind of moderate. The impeccably progressive Ohio senator who has occupied a spot on the left flank of the Democratic caucus for a very long time is declining to sign up for the fashionable radical causes of the hour. Brown has not endorsed the Bernie Sanders “Medicare-for-all” plan that contemplates the end of private insurance in America, nor for the outlandishly expensive and eminently mockable Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “Green New Deal.” The question is whether the Democratic party is leaving behind Brown’s style of politics. The Left’s disdain...

    New York 'it girl' and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has always carried one great big piece of political designer baggage with her: Socialism, with all its ghastly train of ruin, which she is trying to repackage as something fresh and new and fashionable. So all eyes were on her as she got a big condemnation of socialism right in her face from President Trump at his State of the Union speech the other night, with the president denouncing its horrors in Venezuela and declaring "America will never be a socialist country." Seventy-six percent of Americans approved of the speech. MSNBC's Chris...

    (CNSNews.com) - Moments after repeating his call for the resignation of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) declared on Sunday that President Donald Trump is "racist." Brown pointed to "news reports" and books to back up his claim. Chuck Todd, the host of NBC's "Meet the Press," asked Brown why "folks" such as Gov. Northam "are now being held accountable for blackface." "Well, I think this country hasn't dealt well with the issues of race," Brown said. "I mean, we have a president who's a racist. Who we have, you know--"

    **SNIP** She also shared the text conversation with the tutor who specifically advised her to add the character above the initial tattoo in order to make sense in Japanese, as characters are typically read top to bottom, right to left. But Grande included the new character below the original tattoo with a drawing of a heart, instead, which resulted in the ink making even less sense than the original. Neither of these configurations are coherent in Japanese, as BuzzFeed notes, so most people would likely read the phrase left to right as 七輪指♡, which roughly translates to “small charcoal grill...

    North Carolina’s Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper raised a few eyebrows this week for reportedly scheduling a “re-election kickoff” event in a private New York City home rather than in his home state. “I hope you’ll join us in the Governor’s re-election kickoff event on Thursday,” reads an email that went out to Cooper’s supporters on Monday. The email promises “cocktails and conversation with Governor Roy Cooper.” It will reportedly take place in the home of Nik Mittal, a prominent investment fund manager, and fellow alum of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. **SNIP** “By announcing his re-election campaign...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren is calling out Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder, and this time it has nothing to do with his football team’s name. In a tweet Saturday, the Massachusetts senator and 2020 presidential candidate used Snyder’s recent purchase of a $100 million yacht as evidence that the super-wealthy could afford to pay her recently proposed wealth tax. As the Washington Post reported, the 305-foot ship is believed to be the first “superyacht” with a certified Imax theater. “This billionaire NFL owner just paid $100M for a ‘superyacht’ with its own Imax theater,” Warren wrote. “I’m pretty sure he can...
