    The Federalist Papers ^ | 8/17/2017 | Seth Connell
    After the horrendous clash between white supremacists and Antifa Communists in Charlottesville, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) claimed that the police did not break up the fight because of the fact that the Neo-Nazis were so heavily armed that separating the groups would have been explosive. During an interview with Black Lives Matter activists DeRay McKesson, McAuliffe stated that the police had found weapons caches around the city, and that intervention would have created an even more violent situation, “They had battering rams and, you know, we had picked up different weapons they had stashed around the city,” McAuliffe told...
  • Who are the antifa? President Trump equated them with white supremacists. Here's why he’s wrong.

    First bursting into the headlines when they shut down far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos in February at the University of California at Berkeley, antifascists again captivated the public imagination by battling the fascists assembled at the “Unite the Right” white power rally in Charlottesville. But what is antifa? Where did it come from? Militant anti-fascist or “antifa” (pronounced ANtifa) is a radical pan-leftist politics of social revolution applied to fighting the far right. Its adherents are predominantly communists, socialists and anarchists who reject turning to the police or the state to halt the advance of white supremacy. Instead they advocate popular...

    Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney argued violent leftists were morally righteous. “No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes,” Romney tweeted Tuesday night. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio took a similar tone in assigning “100% to blame” for the Charlottesville violence on white supremacists — which amounts to a total exculpation of antifa. Rubio also tweeted out a poorly-worded statement that may have explicitly endorsed left-wing violence: “When entire movement built on anger & hatred towards people different than you,it justifies & ultimately leads to violence against them,” the senator...

    The Republican-led Senator lied to the American people. They promised to repeal the failed Obamacare law for seven-and-a-half years. They ran their campaigns on repealing Obamacare. But they all lied.

    RUSH: “Women with master’s degrees and doctorates are freezing their eggs because there are not enough educated men in the world, according to a new study. Researchers interviewed 150 women who were having their eggs frozen at eight clinics in the U.S. and Israel between June 2014 and August 2016. More than 80 percent of participants had college degrees.” Some have master’s, some have MD, PhD. And the lead author of the study, a professor at Yale, Marcia Inhorn, said, “There is a major gap. They are literally missing men. There are not enough college graduates for them. In simple...

    A dozen or so House Democrats want Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to go after a dispiriting loss in a House election in Georgia. They just don't know how to make it happen. "We can't keep losing races and keep the same leadership in place. You have a baseball team that keeps losing year after year. At some point, the coach has got to go, right?" said Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., on Friday. The frustrated Democrats met in Rice's office a day earlier to discuss their options as they face long odds of knocking out the woman who has led the...

    The discussion was meant to show that lawmakers are not yielding the climate discussion to those who reject mainstream scienceFor a few hours yesterday, climate science was not the target of attacks in Congress. Researchers, diplomats and policy experts warned about the dangers of ignoring clear research showing that humans are warming the planet at an alarming rate in an unofficial hearing hosted by Democratic lawmakers. The discussion was an alternative to the recent hearings in the House Science, Space and Technology Committee, run by Chairman Lamar Smith, the conservative Texas Republican who has accused federal climate scientists of engaging...

    Democrats were visibly frustrated and second-guessing themselves on Wednesday after Democrat Jon Ossoff lost Georgia's special congressional race the prior night. The election outcome has caused activists and Democratic lawmakers to regroup and try to develop a new strategy for taking back the House of Representatives in 2018. Democrats had hoped to make the special election a referendum on President Donald Trump's agenda by electing Ossoff, who had raised about $25 million. The loss hit Democrats hard, and some questioned the leadership and strategies under House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), according to the New York Times. "Our brand...

    Sen. Chris Murphy (D., Conn.) said on Wednesday that Democrats have been "hyper-confused" on economic issues for years. Harold Ford, Jr., an MSNBC contributor and former Democratic congressman, asked Murphy on "Morning Joe" about the Democrats' future economic message going into the 2018 midterm elections. "I think we have to challenge ourselves," Murphy said. " I think we've been hyper-confused over the course of the past five years. Some of the time we are talking about economic growth. Some of the of the time we are talking about economic fairness." Murphy added that he does not know whether Democrats have...
  • Liberals need to stop using Trump as a shield for their own incompetence in losing

    06/18/2017 9:12:50 AM PDT · by Clive · 17 replies
    Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton. That is not a complicated sentence. Nevertheless the fact conveyed in that sentence came as a monstrous shock to many of the best political minds, pundits and reporters in the whole United States. The greatest brains, the wiliest strategists, the most experienced campaign advisors were in so deep for the Hillary win that they assigned to it a certitude normally associated with the mutterings of Fate. I still receive merriment from the memory of election night, when a bare hour before the polls were closing such oracle-organs as The New York Times and its compeer...

    Hollywood may never forget the weekend of June 16, 2017. Tinseltown box office, already down, is heading to three sizable flops all opening at the same. Major stars and directors are involved, too. I guess the biggest problem out there is “The Book of Henry,” from “Jurassic World” directed Colin Trevorrow. There have been few screenings and no reviews. (UPDATE Really bad ones are trickling in.) Star Naomi Watts did her publicity in May and won’t appear at Wednesday’s L.A. Film Festival premiere. (She’s filming in Prague.) “Room” prodigy Jacob Tremblay co-stars. “Henry” is from Focus Features’ old regime, so...

    Top congressional Democrats officially introduced legislation Thursday to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2024, up from its current level of $7.25. The move marks a stark policy change for the party, which was promoting an increase to just $10.50 as recently as 2015. "What we are here today to say is that a living wage is $15... If you are working 40 or 50 hours a week, you should not be living in poverty," said Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. He noted it had been almost a decade since the last time Congress had raised the...

    President Trump just gave ISIS its new name: Losers. (Short for Evil Losers). If you think that’s no big deal, you’re wrong. It’s a big deal. This is – literally – weapons-grade persuasion from the most powerful Master Persuader of our time. As I have taught you in this blog, President Trump’s clever nicknames for people are not random. They are deeply engineered for visual impact and future confirmation bias. In this case, the visuals will be provided by future terror attacks. That reinforces the “evil” part, obviously. But more importantly, the Losers will be doing nothing but losing on...

    Probably Overthinking It ^ | 10/14/2016 | Allen Downey
    Last year I presented a paper called "Will Millennials Ever Get Married?" at SciPy 2015. You can see video of the talk and download the paper here. I used data from the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) to estimate the age at first marriage for women in the U.S., broken down by decade of birth. I found evidence that women born in the 1980s and 90s were getting married later than previous cohorts, and I generated projections that suggest they are on track to stay unmarried at substantially higher rates. Yesterday the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) released...

    Former Democratic President Jimmy Carter revealed Monday night that he backed Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton in last year's Democratic presidential primary. "Can y'all see why I voted for him?" the 92-year-old Carter said of Sanders, who was seated next to him during a discussion hosted by the Carter Center on Human Rights in Atlanta. Carter kept his preference quiet during last year's heated race between Clinton and Sanders, but his distaste for Hillary and Bill Clinton is an open secret. Carter would be Sander's highest-ranking supporter in the Democratic Party. Only one senator backed the Vermont Independent...

    Every detail was designed to mark Hillary Clinton’s moment in history — from the glass ceiling at Manhattan’s Javits Center, where her supporters were gathered, to her and hubby Bill’s suite at The Peninsula hotel, selected so she could personally see Trump Tower, home to the foe she was set to crush. Then came the voter returns. In this exclusive excerpt from their fascinating new book “Shattered,’’ political reporters Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes take readers inside Hillary Clinton’s world on the night that changed her life — and the nation — forever. Hillary’s communications team decamped to the Javits...

    Like many after the 2016 election, Barbra Streisand was disappointed with the results. In fact, she was heartbroken. The Oscar winner opened up about Hillary Clinton’s loss during an interview with WNYC’s Leonard Lopate. In her opinion, it all came down to the fact that “women are still so underestimated” in society. “It’s incredible to watch even this last election with Hillary, the kind of strong woman, the powerful woman, the educated woman, the experienced woman, being thought of as the other, or too elite, or too educated,” she said. “It’s very, very odd to me, and it was heartbreaking...
