    I found out Donald Trump had won the Electoral College while midstream in providing a urine sample for the emergency psychiatric staff of a New York City public hospital. The unlockable bathroom door in this unescapable wing was ajar, and I could hear the victorious Mike Pence’s sinister Sunday-school baritone taunting me with the truth from the hallway television. For the preceding witching hours of election night, I had lain in a fetal position amidst a cast of anonymous men nursing their own crises, my hands clasped tightly over my ears. It wasn’t that I minded the howls of the...
  • Tim Kaine initially blames ‘gun violence’ for Ohio State car-and-knife attack

    11/30/2016 3:52:42 PM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 46 replies
    Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine said Monday he was saddened by the “senseless act of gun violence” at Ohio State University, even though the attacker used a butcher knife and a car. Mr. Kaine, who ran on the 2016 Democratic ticket with presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, was accused of pushing a gun-control agenda after his Twitter post blaming firearms for the siege. Eleven people were injured in a rampage by Somali-born student Abdul Razak Ali Artan, who drove into a crowd on a sidewalk and then chased bystanders with a knife in what is being investigated as a possible act of...

    Famed sportscaster turned-political pundit Keith Olbermann tore into Donald Trump on today’s episode of the Resistance, slamming Trump for wondering whether the election that he himself won was rigged and into the mainstream media for giving Donald Trump’s absurd conspiracy theories the same coverage they would receive if they were serious concerns.

    It was bound to happen sooner or later. Ever since his election as Canada’s prime minister last October, Justin Trudeau has revelled in global tributes, raves and swoons. He’s the Disney prince with the trippy dance moves, the groovy Haida tattoo and the gender-balanced cabinet. He’s the last best hope for globalization, the star attraction at the Pride Parades, the hero of the Paris Climate Summit, the guy everyone wants a selfie with. Trudeau made himself synonymous with Canada. He made Canada cool again. It was fun while it lasted. By the early hours of Saturday morning, Havana time, Trudeau...

    The United States has an abysmal record on women in politics. As of last spring, just 20 percent of national-level seats were held by women, and the local numbers are just as bad. And although that number rose slightlythis election cycle, we’re nowhere close to the 50/50 ratio of nations like, say, Iceland.

The state of the UK isn’t much better: Theresa May’s Brexit bumbling and the High Court’s decision to leave Article 50 to an MPs' vote has left the country thoroughly frustrated. But there seems to be a solution forming in the minds of Britons: Poach the American leaving office.

You might be falling from a great height, but you wake up — or miraculously change scenery — before you can hit the ground, or even wonder about survival. For most of the world, Donald Trump’s election feels like a nightmare that lacks that one saving grace. For the last few days we have all been in free fall, with the ground fast approaching, except that we also know we are wide awake.

    Many people are liberal before they become conservative. That was true for me. What changed? Well, in my case, it seems to have been a combination of reading conservative authors . . . Buckley, Will, C.S. Lewis, T.S. Eliot, catholic theologians such as Hitchcock . . . with a new interest in religion. My faith became stronger. I had been to a university which was deeply religious (no, it was not Catholic), but that influence merely planted the seeds of my faith. I remained blindly liberal while still on campus. Of course, it did not hurt that I reacted to...

    This is a video from a liberal explaining that Donald Trump won because liberals no longer know how to discuss anything, and they picked a horrible candidate. I don't agree with his premise, or his opinion of Donald Trump, but he's pretty spot on about how liberals believe calling people names and shutting down discussion is "persuasive", and how if you tell people they are racist they won't likely listen to you. I found the video entertaining anyway, even though he buys the media spin about Donald Trump hook, line, and sinker. https://www.facebook.com/viralthread/videos/598130190359668/

The Republican presidential election is prompting an exodus among left-leaning Americans who fear they'll soon be required to hunt, pray, pay taxes, and live according to the Constitution. Canadian border residents say it's not uncommon to see dozens of sociology professors, liberal arts majors, global-warming activists, and "green" energy proponents crossing their fields at night.

Metro reported searches for “how to impeach a president” increased 4,850 percent just hours after Clinton conceded. Google Trends data indicated the top five states...

Thankfully, I get to write about ESPN, where the focus on sports means I never have to deal with politics. Ah, if only that were true.

    ESPN is doing a very bad job of pretending it isn’t deathly afraid of rapidly declining subscriber numbers. At the end of October, Nielsen released its monthly television subscriber numbers report, and it showed a loss of 621,000 subscribers for ESPN and similar losses for ESPN2 and ESPNU. ......... In 2013, ESPN had over 99 million subscribers. Today, it has just under 89 million............ But this year they will miss out on somewhere around $800 million in revenue they would’ve otherwise earned if they still had 2013's subscriber numbers.

But assaults on Trump supporters appear to be growing increasingly common as Election Day approaches and tensions intensify. Reports of Trump lawn signs and banners being stolen and defaced are everywhere on social media. No doubt there will be plenty more such assaults in the final two weeks as Americans head to the polls. Making matters worse, undercover video evidence...

One of the things I see Republicans do all the time that helps Democrats a lot is when a writer on the Right uses the word “liberal” to describe any Democrat. To me, that is like cutting a check for $100 and sending it to the DNC for every...

And far too many have failed to recognize that there is a difference between change and chaos.  The latter is what we will get with a Trump presidency. At a time when the country is facing real issues and many are wondering if they have a future of...

    Despite conservatives’ perceptions, conservative media exists in a small, ineffectual bubble.

Prior to the Internet, there were basically no large-audience right-wing media operations aside from a few talk-radio programs. Since the 1996 establishment of Fox News and the popularization of the Web, it has now become possible for a conservatively inclined people to consume all kinds of news and opinion catering to their specific tastes and viewpoints.

    When a law professor wore a Black Lives Matter shirt to class earlier this year, she saw it as a teaching tool and exercise in academic freedom. Some of her “concerned students” saw the gesture as an attempt to push her “personal beliefs” on them, but also a threat to their ability to become practicing lawyers – and told her so in a much-derided memo. The incident was revived this month after Inside Higher Ed confirmed the institution was southern California’s Whittier Law School, whose student body is majority-minority, and the professor was Patricia Leary. Though Leary’s public critique of...

At least for a moment, antagonists on either side of polarizing issues could see beyond the epistemic horizon of their most comfortable talking points. Black Lives Matter activists thanked the police for their protection and sacrifice. Conservative Republicans, most notably House Speaker Paul Ryan and former Speaker Newt Gingrich,...

I call it a “mystery” because the working-class white people who make up the bulk of Trump’s fan base show up in amazing numbers for the candidate, filling stadiums and airport hangars, but their views, by and large, do not appear in our prestige newspapers. On their opinion pages, these publications take care to represent demographic categories of nearly every kind, but “blue-collar” is one they persistently overlook. The views of working-class people are so foreign to that universe...

Four years ago, at a charity fundraiser in Palm Beach, Donald Trump got into a bidding war at the evening's live auction. The items up for sale: A Denver Broncos helmet, autographed by then-star quarterback Tim Tebow, and a Tebow jersey. Trump won, eventually, with a bid of $12,000. Afterward, he posed with the helmet. His purchase made gossip-column news: a flourish of generosity, by a mogul with money to burn. "The Donald giveth, and The Donald payeth," wrote the Palm Beach...

    The New York "Slimes" a few weeks ago ran a smear hit-piece on Trump regarding women. An obvious cheap smear attempt. The New York "Slimes" in the sewer again. You can hardly notice them in there anymore, they just blend in so nicely. A while back they would have tried to nail him with some kind of nanny-gate, but now they just go back to the tried and true sexual angle. What these denizens of the deep don't seem to realize is that the tide is beginning to slowly turn. The good folk, dumb as they are, are beginning to...

    HONOLULU – Gov. David Ige signed SB 2954 (ACT 108) which authorizes county police departments in Hawai‘i to enroll firearms applicants and individuals registering their firearms, in a criminal record monitoring service. The system, also known as the “Rap Back” system, is a service of the Federal Bureau of Investigation that provides continuous criminal record monitoring for authorized government agencies such as law enforcement agencies. The service notifies the agencies when a firearm owner is arrested for a criminal offense anywhere in the country. This will allow county police departments in Hawai‘i to evaluate whether the firearm owner may continue...
  • Brexit should be a wake-up call to US liberals: don’t assume Trump will lose

    In the wake of the UK’s vote Thursday to leave the EU, comparisons of Brexit's  success to the rise of Donald Trump have been flying far and wide. This is only natural, since anti-immigrant, anti-elite, and nationalist sentiments played major roles in both shocking phenomena. Of course, many of these analogies are too facile. The US faces no comparable controversy over regulations from a transnational economic bureaucracy. The US electorate is much more diverse than Britain’s. Trump himself has massive weaknesses in personality, popularity, and campaign mechanics that an issue-oriented campaign doesn’t. And where "Leave" and "Remain" were essentially...
  • Trump's Anti-Interventionism - Neocons Hate It As Anti-War Left Comes Around

    Until recently the progressive mind has been resolutely closed and stubbornly frozen in place against all things Trump. But cracks are appearing in the ice. With increasing frequency over the last few months, some of the most thoughtful left and progressive figures have begun to speak favorably of aspects of Trump’s foreign policy. Let us hear from these heretics, among them William Greider, Glen Ford, John Pilger, Jean Bricmont, Stephen F. Cohen and William Blum. Their words are not to be construed as “endorsements,” but rather an acknowledgment of Trump’s anti-interventionist views, the impact those views are having and the...

    If it "brexits," the United Kingdom would likely chart its own course within the U.N. climate process, seeing its influence shrink overall while pro-coal Poland gained clout within the group of nations in opposition to more climate-ambitious Germany and France, analysts said.
  • The Assault Weapons Ban Is A Stupid Idea Pushed By Stupid People

    The Federalist ^ | 6/13/16 | Sean Davis
    It happens like clock work: as soon as there’s a mere whisper of a terrorist attack or a mass shooting, the usual suspects kick in to high gear. Their destination is always the same: a faraway land where a so-called assault weapons ban magically eliminates not only guns but also prevents guns from walking of their own volition, without need of human agency, into crowded places and killing people. The reaction after the terrorist attack in Orlando, in which a radical Islamist who pledged allegiance to ISIS murdered at least 49 people in a packed night club, was as predictable...
