  • Spicer Slams Media: Dems Didn’t ‘Almost Win’ in Georgia, ‘They Lost’

    During Wednesday’s White House briefing, NBC reporter Hallie Jackson asked if President Trump was “expending too much political capital on a race that Republicans should be winning easily,” referring to Georgia’s special congressional election. In response, Press Secretary Sean Spicer blasted the absurd liberal media narrative that it was a “symbolic” or “emotional” victory for Democrats despite their candidate falling short. "“I thought that some of the coverage was a little intriguing as I watched it....Democrats went all in on this race. They spent over $8.3 million. They said on the record that their goal was to win this race....
  • Democrats Begin To Wonder: When Do We Win?

    For all the roiling anger and energy at the grass roots, the party still fell short in Georgia and Kansas. And Democratic prospects in upcoming elections aren't promising. As it became clear late Tuesday evening that Jon Ossoff would fall just short of the 50-percent mark in the first round of voting in a suburban Atlanta special election, Democrats back in Washington started leafing through their calendars and asking: When does the winning start? Ossoff’s 'moral victory' — capturing 48 percent of the vote in a conservative-oriented district — was welcome, but after two successive close-but-no-cigar finishes in House special...

    I don’t want to sound like the Baghdad Bob of the 2018 election cycle, but the special election in Georgia’s 6th congressional district was yet another reminder that despite the mainstream media’s relentless narrative attempting to turn the early days of the Trump administration into a story of GOP rout, reality has stubbornly refused to cooperate with them. Don’t get me wrong—the GOP is absolutely facing headwinds in 2018. And there’s a lot of political ground left to cover in November. I’d certainly rather be in a position of winning districts by increasing margins rather than decreasing ones. Could the...
  • Tax Day protesters across the US demand that Trump to release his tax returns

    Thousands of protesters at Tax Day marches today in cities from Washington, D.C., to Denver to Los Angeles are calling on President Trump to release his tax returns. Trump is the first U.S. president and the first major party nominee in four decades to refuse to release his full tax returns to the public. Organizers said Saturday's protests, dubbed the Tax March, were scheduled in nearly 150 cities, and stemmed from the women's march that took place the day after Trump's inauguration.

    In a proposal with many losers, the Environmental Protection Agency and State Department stand out as targets for the biggest spending reductions. Funding would disappear altogether for 19 independent bodies that count on federal money for public broadcasting, the arts and regional issues from Alaska to Appalachia. Trump's budget outline is a bare-bones plan covering just "discretionary" spending for the 2018 fiscal year starting on Oct. 1. It is the first volley in what is expected to be an intense battle over spending in coming months in Congress, which holds the federal purse strings and seldom approves presidents' budget plans....

    “The best thing that could happen to America would be if Trump and Pence were on a plane that crashed and burned.” - Nikki Giovanni. My mouth hangs wide, it takes me a minute to think of my next question. Nikki Giovanni, the famous poet and distinguished university professor makes me speechless. I want to talk about her nomination for the Maya Angelou Lifetime Achievement Award. We could chat about her friendship with Maya Angelou, or her NAACP Image Awards. I would even be eager to talk about her Grammy nomination or her love of literature, poetry, and cooking. I...

    Talk about your fake news.... A new website, HillaryBeatTrump.org, claims to tell the news "from the Real America where the majority rules." The site is written as if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in the November 2016 presidential election. The satirical website doesn't hold back on its thoughts, with headlines ranging from "Revelation: God comes out as Hillary supporter," "President Clinton awards Obama the Congressional Medal of Freedom," and "Historians say Clinton's presidency is already in all-time top five." Other headlines take a not-so-subtle jab at President Trump, like "NYT pans Clinton's "oppressively intelligent press conference"...

    After Hillary Clinton’s monumental loss in the 2016 election, she and her team of sycophants, bent on casting blame anywhere but the failed candidate with a losing message, spit out one of the all-time fakest of all fake news stories: The Russians did it. Team Clinton said that she’d lost to a reality show star because the Russians, spearheaded by President Vladimir Putin, had directly sought to influence the election — and succeeded. In their version of events, Putin masterminded the hacking, and subsequent release, of emails from the Democratic National Committee and top aides to Clinton. While the emails...

    DETROIT (CNN) - Gobsmacked by their base's ferocious rejection of Donald Trump's presidency, the candidates to chair the Democratic Party scrambled Saturday to show how devoted they are to the cause. Former Labor Secretary Tom Perez bragged to the Democratic National Committee's "future forum" about racing to airport protests in Houston and then San Francisco. Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, made sure everyone knew he was the only one to skip David Brock's donor summit to participate in the Women's March in Washington. Put him in charge, Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison pledged, and "We will be asking...

    Let’s agree that President Trump’s travel ban on visitors from seven nations was a sensible idea hobbled by flaws, especially regarding green card holders and dual citizens. Let’s also agree we haven’t seen a rollout this clumsy since the debut of ObamaCare, which was far more serious because it penalized millions of Americans while Trump’s order inconvenienced hundreds of foreign nationals. Still, we can assume, based on past performance, that Trump will learn from the mistakes. His fierce determination to be a successful president cannot co-exist with rookie blunders. But what about the other players in the drama? Can we...

    Thousands of defiant New Yorkers filled President-elect Donald Trump’s backyard Thursday on the eve of his inauguration for a star-studded, full-throated statement of protest. Joined by celebrities, government leaders and union organizers, angry protesters flooded Columbus Circle, Broadway and several blocks of Central Park West. “There are those who are working to divide us,” said “Sex and the City” star Cynthia Nixon. “We are not going back. We’re not turning around. “Yes we’ve had a setback. But we can see it as a setback or we can see it as a challenge. And where there is a challenge there is...

    Would someone please help me understand why the losers keep trying to tell the winners how to run things? I didn't think life ran that way. If a man applies for the job and he is one of three applicants and does NOT get the job, he does not have the authority to ask for anything to be done from that position. If two military units go to battle, the losers do not tell the winners how they want to be treated. If two football teams play a game and one side wins, the losers do not have the authority...

    On Donald Trump’s first day in office, organizers of the Women’s March on Washington are calling on “all defenders of human rights” to join to stand up for women and other groups that have been marginalized. But there is one group, composed of about half of the population, that is hard to find in the social media and logistical frenzy leading up to the highest profile event protesting Trump’s politics: men.

    Billionaire hedge-fund manager George Soros lost nearly $1 billion as a result of the stock-market rally spurred by Donald Trump’s surprise presidential election. But Stanley Druckenmiller, Mr. Soros’s former deputy who helped Mr. Soros score $1 billion of profits betting against the British pound in 1992, anticipated the market’s recent climb and racked up sizable gains, according to people close to the matter. The divergent bets of the two traders are a stark reminder of the challenges even acclaimed investors have faced following Mr. Trump’s unexpected victory. Many experts had predicted a tumble for stocks in the wake of the...

    Almost every day for the past few weeks Celia McCarthy has sat down to knit a pink hat. To be specific, a pink hat with ears, colloquially known as a “pussy hat.” McCarthy has knit 12 pink hats so far, but only one is for her. The rest she plans to send to Washington D.C. where they will adorn the heads of some of the hundreds of thousands of women who are expected to march on Jan. 21, the day after Donald Trump is inaugurated as the nation’s 45th president. McCarthy is not alone. Thousands of women around the United...

    When the 49ers announced their team awards Friday afternoon, Kaepernick was the recipient of the Len Eshmont Award, given to the 49er who "best exemplifies the inspirational and courageous play of Len Eshmont, an original member of the 1946 49ers team." The award, which was established after Eshmont died in 1957, is considered the most prestigious honor the players vote on.
