  • Maxine Waters to women: John Conyers 'has impeccable integrity on our issues'

    Rep. John Conyers, newly facing sexual misconduct charges from former aides, was praised by fellow Rep. Maxine Waters just last month as a champion of women. During an address to organizers of the national Women’s March in which she lashed out at “rape culture” and President Trump, she singled out the Michigan lawmaker for special attention. “You know, there is a member of Congress who has been supportive of women for many, many, many years,” said said in a keynote address to the Women's Convention Sojourner Truth Luncheon in Detroit.“He is quiet, he is confident, he is powerful, but he...

    Maxine Waters loves to talk about millennials, and she’s apparently adopted some of their traits, too. The California congresswoman made an appearance on Bloomberg TV on Thursday and her definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors” — the standard for impeaching a president of the United States — appears to be lowering. When asked what she hopes to achieve with her frequent “Impeach 45” chants around the country, Waters responded, “I have learned over the years that I’ve been in this business that there a few people who are willing to speak truth to power and to talk about what really...

    Kelsey Harkness of the Federalist noticed an interesting facet of this year’s Glamour magazine’s “2017 Women of the Year Awards." Despite plenty to choose from, none of the recipients of the female only awards were conservative. In fact, it appears that many of the award winners won these awards because of their liberal leanings. Harkness writes: "In all, Glamour honored 10 women at a splashy Brooklyn award show this week. No less than half were in part recognized for their advocacy on behalf of liberal causes. Of its decision to honor model Gigi Hadid as “The Supernova,” Glamour wrote: “[W]hile a...

    Before Maxine Waters (D-CA) ever went viral for reclaiming her time at a congressional hearing this summer, she was advocating for constituents domestically and globally. That’s what makes her rise to popularity within social media feel familiar — she’s been about this life, battling injustice, inequality and systematic silencing for over 40 years. So when she delivered the now-famous line in a House Financial Services committee hearing in August after Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin attempted to filibuster her, it was business as usual.

    Maxine Waters (D-CA) has rebranded herself in the Trump Era as a strong public servant standing up to the corrupt, demagogic president. Repeatedly, she has harangued the president during speeches that range from AIDS fundraisers to LGBT Gala award dinners.Today in Michigan, Waters led a raucous chorus at a women’s rally, chanting “Impeach 45! Impeach 45!” But, people would be wise to remember that her career is one of corruption and failure.Rep. Waters has passed just three bills in her 27 years in Congress. That means on average, Waters produces something noteworthy for constituents every 9 years. One of the...

    Ever since it became clear back in 2015 that Donald Trump would be a serious candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, Democrats have blasted him for supposedly "demonizing" his opponents and using highly aggressive statements to push his message. He wasn't polite, he was stoking up tensions, and so on. You know the drill. That kind of criticism coming from Democrats is absolutely fascinating because it's so incredibly hypocritical. The politicians who demonize their opponents are Democrats. Case in point? Rep. Maxine Waters' speech at the Ali Forney Center in New York City on October 13 where she said the...

    Rep. Maxine Waters, a leader in the resist-Trump movement, recently told a New York audience that she will “take out” the president, a video posted online last week shows. “Wow, what a moving evening this is,” Waters is heard saying in the video of an Oct. 13 event at the Ali Forney Center in New York City. “I’m sitting here listening, watching, absorbing, thinking about Ali even though I never met him. And with this kind of inspiration, I will go and take Trump out tonight,” the California Democrat said as the crowd cheered.

    Hey, why not deed that spot to Rep. Clowny McPartyBarn of Florida? Xe’d be great, and we’re pretty sure xe’s a woman. – Nancy Pelosi appeared on “The View” Friday, and told them she needs to remain the Democrat minority leader in the House solely because of her gender. Not kidding: “I was ready to go if Hillary won, have a woman at the top of the table, protecting the Affordable Care Act, which is to me similar to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid,” she told the assembled hosts, but she said that she was the only woman at her table...

    The Michelle Obama Public Library in Long Beach, California hosted a satanic looking drag queen on Saturday who read books to young children as part of the libraryÂ’s celebration LGBTQ History Month. The shocking photo of a man dressed as a female demon with giant horns on his head reading to little children at a public library was posted to Twitter and Facebook by the Long Beach Library but taken down after a huge outpouring of critical replies, including from GOP Congressional candidate Omar Navarro. It also got the approval of the Church of Satan. From this promotional graphic posted...

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) this week called for Republicans to acknowledge that President Trump is "unstable." During an interview on MSNBC, Waters went after members of Congress who she says are watching "the damage" Trump is doing in the country and not speaking up. "To watch him just guide us into a possible war and not speak up because they're concerned about their reelection is not responsible," she said during the interview. "I believe it is time for Republicans, especially, to walk over to the White House and tell him, 'enough is enough.'" Waters, a vocal Trump critic, said she...

    In her latest hurled insult, Rep. Maxine Waters has called Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson "an educated fool." "Look at Ben Carson. My God. My grandmother would call him an educated fool," Waters stated. "Here's a man who has a reputation of being a highly competent surgeon, but when he talks about poor people, he says they're the cause of their poverty. "He doesn't understand why you didn't do what he did and why you didn't make it like he made it. And he doesn't know the difference between slavery and immigration," she went on. At...

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) was on a roll again, pushing her impeachment of Donald Trump initiative that will get absolutely nowhere, but hey—she’s a California liberal; she can say whatever she wants. During a town hall event hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Waters went on a rampage, voicing her frustration at black voters for not being aggressive in jumping into her clown car and advocating for the impeachment of Trump. She said that Trump lies every day, he’s obstructed justice, and that he’s in collusion with the Russians. Well, for starters, no evidence exists concerning whether he obstructed...

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who previously has called for the impeachment of Donald Trump, on Thursday told a Congressional Black Caucus Town Hall on Civil Rights that she expects other members of the black community to back her up: “Don't come here and tell me, ‘Maxine, you keep on doing what you do.’ But when you gonna give me some support?” she asked. “How many of you in your organizations have said, 'Impeach 45' ?” Waters urged the crowd not to get hung up on what law to invoke in the impeachment process: Impeachment is about whatever the Congress says...

    From the beginning it was a set up to find dirt on Trump campaign insiders and if possible to topple Donald Trump’s presidential aspirations. Before and after the 2016 election. And while this operation had many moving parts and alternating players, the mission to unseat Trump never changed. And it remains ongoing. Paul Manafort was wiretapped. Cater Page was wiretapped. Donald Trump Jr. was wiretapped. Jared Kushner was wiretapped. Gen. Michael Flynn was wiretapped. And likely there were others. Find Out More > 62,840 And none of it was very legal. In fact, most of it was very illegal, according...

    They say if you have a problem, you talk to your Congressman. Actually, there are plenty of Congressmen to go to—and go after. This past week, I flew into Washington DC, my first visit to the US Capital (and Capitol!) in over 20 years. Why? The Mother of All Rallies is rolling out at the Washington Mall. We Trump supporters from all over the country are strutting our citizenship prowess. And what perfect timing. The whole capitol is up in arms over amnesty. Trump had a meeting with Cryin’ Chuck and Alzheimer’s Nancy. There’s tweets and talks about legalizing 800,000...

    Yet another police stand-down in another Democrat-controlled city took place on Sunday. This time, the Antifa-led riot took place in a familiar place – Berkeley California, where a group called “Patriot’s Prayer” had planned to hold a peaceful demonstration of the exercise of free speech, a rapidly-dying concept in our country wherever Democrats are in control. Lacking confidence in the intent of the Berkeley police to provide adequate security, Patriot’s Prayer cancelled its event, but a few of its members showed up anyway to exercise their supposed constitutional right to assemble and speak. That was when they were set upon...

    Anyone who doesn’t know that Rep. Maxine Waters is not to be trifled with has not been paying attention. A few weeks ago, during a congressional hearing, the California Democrat silenced the U.S. treasury secretary and gave voice to legions of exasperated women by repeating the phrase, “Reclaiming my time.” But Waters, 79, has not seemed shaken by the blowback. As she declared Tuesday night after receiving the social humanitarian award at BET’s Black Girls Rock ceremony, “I’m simply a strong black woman.” Waters, in her speech Tuesday, indicated that she does understand the challenge of being a strong black...
