  • Maxine Waters: L.A. Riots Were an ‘Insurrection,’ ‘Defining Moment’ in Black Resistance

    Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters (Calif.) spoke to the Huffington Post on Thursday and fondly remembered the 1992 Los Angeles riots, insisting they were actually an "insurrection." More than 50 people were killed during the riots, with thousands more injured and over $1 billion in property damage. But Waters told the Huffington Post that the L.A. riots were "a milestone in the history of black people demanding justice." "These were people who had been basically forgotten," Waters said. "And because of Rodney King's beating and the current emotion that was stirring in that, it was like people were saying, ‘We're here....

    The Huffington Post's Black Voices ^ | April 27, 2017 | Taryn Finley
    It’s been 25 years since the Los Angeles rebellion, but Rep. Maxine Waters remembers it like it was just yesterday. The California Democrat was traveling on business when Rodney King was brutally beaten by LAPD officers on March 3, 1991. She told HuffPost that she remembers watching the footage from her hotel bed. “I sat straight up and all I could say, ‘Oh, my god! Oh, my god! Look at this,’” Waters said. She and black Americans across the country shared the same outrage. King, who was pulled over after a high-speed chase with the LAPD, was released from jail...

    Her daughter, Karen, has scooped up nearly $650,000 in payments from Mama Waters’ slate mailer operation for her federal campaign committee since 2006, the Washington Free Beacon reported this week. And Mama Waters owes her well-heeled daughter an additional $108,000. Waters also mau-maued the House Veterans Committee into hiring two black staffers. And she walked away with a slap on the wrist from the toothless House Ethics Committee in 2012 after being charged with multiple ethics violations related to her meddling in minority-owned OneUnited Bank. Reminder for all the new fangirls and fanboys suffering from Maxi-mnesia: Her husband, Sidney, was...

    Katie wrote about how the House Oversight Committee found that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn might have broken the law by not disclosing payments he received from Russia on his background check forms. "I see no evidence or no data to support the notion that General Flynn complied with the law," Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) said. Chaffetz also caused a bit of stir when he said that he would not be seeking re-election, with many speculating he’s eyeing the governor’s office.Yet, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) decided to go on MSNBC this week and throw a hand grenade into the...

    Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters (Calif.) told an audience on Tuesday that the United States is the country of undocumented immigrants. Waters was speaking in Los Angeles to the Westchester-Playa Democratic Club about a number of issues, from the federal budget to how to resist President Trump's agenda, according to the group's website. In her speech, Waters discussed young undocumented immigrants often referred to as "dreamers," who are protected from deportation by former President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive order. Waters said that the United States is their country. "These are people who have hope. These are people...

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is the current darling of the left — which tells you just how crazy Democrats have gotten. CNNPolitics reports, accurately, Waters is “having a moment” with the biggest online buzz since Bernie Sanders. Elle dubbed her “The Millennials’ Political Rock Star.” Yet she’s every bit the over-the-top lefty she’s been for decades. Indeed, she’s winning all the praise by calling for President Trump’s impeachment. On the record, at least 25 times. Last week, she told the Los Angeles Press Club, “I want this president impeached.” She spent the weekend leading a crowd of activists in an...

    Waters said there were questions about whether Trump and the Russian government colluded to defeat Hillary Clinton, but as she listed her accusations against various members of Trump's Cabinet, Melvin tried to cut in. "You have enough information that leads us to, I think, a credible investigation to find out whether or not there was collusion, and whether or not an oil deal is involved in all of this," Waters said. "You just started that by saying, ‘The question becomes,'" Melvin said. "Should we wait to call for impeachment until we have the answers to that question or some of...

    Destroying the left-wing narrative For whatever reason, the voters of California have decided that Maxine Waters is the kind of crazy person they want to keep in Congress. I’m not sure why that is, but left-coasters also keep Pelosi employed so, clearly, there’s something in the water out there. Anyway, Ms. Waters hates Trump. She wants him impeached. She’s vowed to impeach him herself. On what grounds she intends to do this, no one seems to be sure.

    Shouldn't some taxpayers consider trying impeachment for two-faced Rep. Maxine Waters? Democrat rep Maxine Waters was the squawking Big Band leader for media purported tens of thousands of anti-Trump protesters who marched in more than 150 American cities under a ‘Rooster’ symbol yesterday. “Among the marchers was an oversized inflatable rooster, sporting an angry expression and a sweeping metallic orange hairdo meant to resemble Trump’s signature style.” (Reuters, April 16, 2017)

    Left-leaning website Salon released a video on Wednesday listing five reasons why Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) should be the next president of the United States. The video, hosted by Salon columnist D. Watkins, highlighted reasons why Waters has recently become a progressive social media darling. "Hard work is in her blood," Watkins said, referencing her working in segregated restaurants at 13 years old. Watkins also noted Waters's hardworking background and her "amazing reputation" of being an advocate for women, children, and people of color.

    President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka, at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, said she wanted to require companies to provide paid maternity leave. The President later reaffirmed that pledge, promising six weeks of paid leave for new mothers. His "fair trade" position is practically indistinguishable from that of Bernie Sanders. He wants taxpayers to "invest" in a trillion-dollar infrastructure program, something that even the Democratic leader of the Senate, Chuck Schumer, said he could get behind. Trump wants to preserve the "good parts" of Obamacare, including preventing insurance companies from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions. He said that government...

    Congresswoman Maxine Waters on Wednesday night said that Fox News host Bill O'Reilly and President Donald Trump should be locked up for alleged sexual harassment. In an appearance on MSNBC's "All in with Chris Hayes," Waters — who has not been quiet about her disdain for President Donald Trump — said O'Reilly should be arrested for alleged sexual harassment against coworkers and explained her distrust of the Trump administration's foreign policy. "They need to go to jail," Waters, D-Calif., said in reference to the president and the people who perpetuated an alleged "sexual harassment enterprise" at Fox News. "Bill O'Reilly...

    You know Democrats are scraping the bottom of the barrel when they pin their future on a 78-year-old career politician who thinks Vladimir Putin invaded Korea. California Congresswoman Maxine Waters was declared “the newest hero of the anti-Trump” movement by leftist website BuzzFeed and an “icon of the Trump resistance” by MSNBC. Despite 13 terms in Congress, Waters only recently gained a national profile, after vowing to obstruct President Trump and promising to impeach him, even though Waters’ pal Nancy Pelosi conceded that Trump has committed no impeachable offenses

    April Ryan is a sub-par journalist who was sycophantic to the Obama Administration and Maxine Waters has a horrible track record and low approval ratings as a “politician”. None-the-less, they continue to build careers, not on their actual track records, but on attacking the right under the hollow and superficial guise or ‘racism.’ Maxine Waters was recently “insulted” by Bill O’Reilly on an episode of Fox & Friends that ended up stirring up the hornet’s nest of leftist “controversy”. O’Reilly stated, after watching a video of Waters speak: “I didn’t hear a word she said. I was looking at the...
