    This should put the “Trump is in the KKK”, while living in New York City and a racist argument (yeah right…sarcasm off) to bed.   Shaking my head in disgust at how desperate and dishonest the media can be to its audience.  Remember prior to Trump running for President both parties liked him for over 30 years.

    Let's go to the tape... According to Hillary and her surrogates, Trump is a horrible racist. Hes a bigot, he hates pretty much everybody and, if he wasnt running for President, hed probably be riding around the deep south wearing a sheet. Hes just that awful. Of course, no one ever said any of this during the last 40 years - over the course of which Trump was a very public figure. Its amazing that someone could be so famous, and yet no one, anywhere, ever mentioned his rampant bigotry. Like so many others, Trumps supposed racism only came to...

    Washington (CNN)-The Rev. Jesse Jackson endorsed Hillary Clinton on Saturday, continuing a recent string of high-profile endorsements for the presumptive Democratic nominee. Jackson, speaking in Chicago, said he trusts that Clinton will look out for the interests of marginalized communities including refugees, immigrants and the poor.

Jackson, who unsuccessfully sought the Democratic nomination for president in 1984 and 1988, endorsed Clinton at the site of a memorial recognizing the hundreds of children killed in the city...

    Though Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) recently praised Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) for making Chicago the friendliest city for immigrants, especially illegal immigrants, pro-amnesty advocates and progressives are lining up beyond his opponent, Jesus Chuy Garcia, who is in a dead heat with Emanuel in the mayoral runoff. (SNIP) He told targeted Democrats in tough re-election fights that he wanted them to vote for this anti-immigrant bill, Gutierrez said then. Thats a fact, an irrefutable fact. So its nice that Rahm Emanuel the candidate is for the DREAM Act kids now, but actions speak louder than words.

    Atlas Shrugged Part I hit movie theaters this weekend. While entertaining and provocative, there were times when the film seemed a bit preachy, and the characters a tad exaggerated. In particular, there's a scene where steel magnate Hank Rearden is engaging a government bureaucrat from the State Science Institute. Rearden has developed a new metal, lighter and tougher than steel, which has tremendous applications. Rather than congratulate him, the G-man is there to deliver a reprimand for overproduction. Flabbergasted, Rearden asks a simple question. "Is Rearden Metel good or not?" The question is irrelevent. If Rearden Metal is not good,...

James Crowley and Gates to sit down over a beer at the White House. The meeting, slated to take place in the next few days, will no doubt result in consensus that we should all...
