    President Donald Trump has done “irreparable” damage to the United States and is “impeachable,” regardless of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, a House Democrat said Thursday. Texas Representative Al Green, who has forced two failed votes to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump, renewed his call in an interview with Hill.TV. "What he has done to this society is harmful and in some cases it may be irreparable,” Green said on the media outlet’s Rising show. He gave the example of Trump telling “police officers that you don’t have to be nice, when you’re arresting someone.” "These are the kinds of...

    DONALD TRUMP will be left without his secret campaign weapon in the 2020 presidential election, as Facebook has announced it will not offer the same support to US President as it did in 2016. The tech-giant declared its change in policy claiming that it will focus on providing support and information to all politicians and campaigns on its website politics.fb.com rather than visiting campaign headquarters. The company’s decision comes after more than a year of controversy over its role in the Trump campaign, with many alleging Facebook gave the American firebrand preferential treatment. In an interview with CBS News' 60...

    Two politicians not known for brevity will face off at 6 p.m on statewide television. When Republican incumbent U.S. Senator Ted Cruz and his Democratic opponent, Beto O’Rourke, face off in their first debate Friday, watch as two long-winded politicians struggle for brevity. This past weekend, a reporter asked Cruz a simple question about Hurricane Harvey. His answer lasted 3 minutes, 57 seconds—which is forever on television. O’Rourke recently used 3 minutes, 38 seconds to give his defense of National Football League players taking a knee during the national anthem to protest police violence against blacks. The abridged version of...

    A House Democrat called on his colleagues Wednesday to "rise up" if Republican senators push forward with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation without hearing from his sexual assault accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. "For the men and women of the House of Representatives, we must rise up in disgust and anger and make certain that our voice is clear," Rep. John Garamendi, D-Calif., said during an interview with CNN. "Get the facts out. Give this woman the benefit of the doubt. Don't treat her as so many women have been treated time after time in courtroom after courtroom." Only the...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., questioned embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's attitude toward his behavior in high school on Tuesday after a clip of him addressing his time at Georgetown Preparatory School circulated on social media. "I can't imagine any parent accepting this view," Warren tweeted. "Is this really what America wants in its next Supreme Court Justice?" During a 2015 speech at Columbus Law School at the Catholic University of America, Kavanaugh joked about his high school experience, saying, “What happens at Georgetown Prep, stays at Georgetown Prep.” In the snippet, first unearthed by MSNBC, Kavanaugh was referring to...

    The Politico Magazine ^ | September 18, 2018 | Edward-Isaac Dovere
    Senator Mazie Hirono thinks Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is not telling the truth about the sexual assault he allegedly committed as a teenager. She thinks he wasn’t telling the truth to the Judiciary Committee when he claimed not to remember any sexual misconduct by a judge he clerked for who was forced to resign last year after allegations from more than a dozen women. And the Hawaii Democrat says that if she gets to question Kavanaugh in another hearing, she’s going to tell him that the revelations over the weekend—when Christine Blasey Ford came forward to accuse Kavanaugh of...

    The Manchester Guardian ^ | September 17, 2018 | Ed Pilkington in New York
    Hillary Clinton has unleashed a blazing attack on Donald Trump, accusing the man who beat her in 2016 in the race for the White House of cruelty, negligence, corruption, dishonesty, racism and malevolence that have combined to put democracy in America into crisis. In an afterword to the new paperback edition of her book on her 2016 presidential election defeat, What Happened, Clinton makes her most excoriating takedown yet of Trump’s character and actions since he took office. The essay, published on Monday by the Atlantic, accuses the sitting president of undermining basic democratic values and positioning himself as a...

    The “Fahrenheit 11/9” director also said Americans should expect the “evil genius” to be re-elected in 2020. Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore said he believes President Donald Trump either wrote or directed one of his staffers to write the anonymous Op-Ed in The New York Times that described an alleged “resistance” effort within his administration. “Trump or one of his minions wrote it,” Moore told CNN in an interview published Sunday. “He’s the master distractor. He’s the king of the misdirect. If we have learned anything by now, it’s that he does things to get people to turn away.” He continued:...

    The Daily Beast ^ | September 14, 2018 | Michael Tomasky
    Brett Kavanaugh stands accused of sexually assaulting a high school classmate. And Feinstein seems to have concluded that the public didn’t need to know this. First of all, what in blazes was Dianne Feinstein thinking? It was late July when she got that letter from a female constituent alleging that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school. And only this week did she bother to share it with her Democratic Judiciary Committee colleagues? And not only that. According to Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer’s explosive New Yorker piece posted Friday morning, those colleagues got wind of...

    The Senate Judiciary Committee completed four days of hearings on the Supreme Court nomination of D.C. Judge Brett Kavanaugh and a vote reportedly will come in about two weeks. The hearings were marred with protests and demonstrations against Kavanaugh as more than 227 demonstrators were arrested between the Sept. 4 start of the proceedings and the end of testimony Friday, according to Capitol authorities. On Day 2, California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris grilled Kavanaugh on whether he had discussed special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election with anyone at the law firm of Kasowitz Benson...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren may be one of President Donald Trump's most vocal critics. But she does not want to boot him out of office, yet. Ahead of November's critical midterm elections, billionaire former hedge fund manager Tom Steyer has piled more than $20 million into his campaign to impeach the president. Asked Thursday evening if she agreed with the mega-donor's effort, Warren answered, "Nope." The Massachusetts Democrat said she wanted to see special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation come to a close before she draws a conclusion. The former FBI director is looking into Russian efforts to influence the 2016...

    Former President Jimmy Carter isn’t holding back in his assessment of Donald Trump, saying this week that if he could somehow become president again he would reverse all the policies Trump has put in place since taking office. Carter made the remark at Emory University, where he speaks each year to incoming students. The 93-year-old former president said he prays for Donald Trump regularly, though it didn’t appear to be working as Trump would “have to change a lot of things” if his prayers were answered. If he had the chance, Carter said he would make the changes himself. “If...

Maddow claims Homeland Security "confirmed" this story. Problem: It's not true. Homeland Security was contacted and said its BS. FEMA contacted Merkley's office who told them, "It's a TV hit.

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — U.S. Senate candidate Phil Bredesen has taken some soft jabs at Republican opponent Marsha Blackburn for refusing to debate him in Memphis, Tennessee. He also unnerved some supporters when he said he could back policies made by President Donald Trump — as long as they help Tennessee. Bredesen, a Democrat, answered questions at a forum at Rhodes College in Memphis on Thursday. More than 400 people attended the session scheduled on the same day Bredesen wanted to debate Blackburn, who has represented a Middle Tennessee district in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2002....

    Chelsea Clinton said that it would be "un-Christian" to roll back abortion protections granted by the U.S. Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade. “When I think about all of the statistics, that are painful, of what women are confronting today in our country, and what even more women confronted pre- Roe, and how many women died, and how many more women were maimed because of unsafe abortion practices, we just can’t go back to that," Clinton said during a SiriusXM Progress Town Hall clip uploaded Thursday. "That’s unconscionable to me. And also, I’m sure that this will unleash another wave...

    Nevada Republican U.S. Sen. Dean Heller said Wednesday he's willing to bet $100 that the Senate will confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by the end of the month. But if there's any delay, he's confident the nominee will be confirmed before November's midterm elections. Heller made the comments on "Nevada Newsmakers ," and is in a tough re-election battle this year and is the only Republican senator running for another term in a state that Democrat Hillary Clinton won in 2016. The senator has portrayed himself to conservatives as the only thing standing in the way of Democrats taking...
  • Asian Americans for the 2018 Midterm Elections

    09/12/2018 1:36:32 AM PDT · by Doreener · 3 replies
    Chinese Americans are the wealthiest and best-educated Americans. They should learn to choose candidates who truly represent their self-interest. Republican politicians who support fair competition in the markets and in the schools best represent Asian American Republicans. They believe in rejecting anyone who supports the use of race rather than merit to pick winners, losers and even Harvard students. In the 1992 presidential election, 55 percent of Asian Americans voted Republican. For the 2018 midterm elections, Nevada, Southern California, New Jersey and Virginia could be important battlegrounds in congressional races for Asian-American GOP votes, according to Karthick Ramakrishnan, a public...

    Former President Jimmy Carter is cautioning Democrats that their path to defeating President Donald Trump depends on independents and moderates. Speaking at his presidential center in Atlanta on Tuesday, Carter said U.S. policies on immigration, the environment and human rights will not improve while Trump is in office. Carter also noted polls showing independents souring on the Republican administration....

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) mockingly said in a speech last weekend that she threatens Trump supporters all the time, defending her comments in June that said people should confront members of President Trump's administration. Waters said she was not threatening Trump supporters or constituents when she called on people to confront Trump Cabinet members and supporters in June — and said Trump was wrong to accuse her of doing so at the time. "I did not threaten [Trump] constituents and supporters. I do that all the time, but I didn't do that that time," Waters said to laughter from...
