  • Politico Reporter: With DNC Lawsuit, Democrats Worry Their Party

    04/23/2018 7:37:27 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 24 replies ^ | April 23, 2018 | Matt Vespa
    The cash-strapped Democratic National Committee has decided to be clown itself further by suing Wikileaks, Russia, and the Trump campaign for collusion during the 2016 election. For a party that’s tired of the media talking about Hillary and 2016, this is a way to keep both issues front and center. It’s going to re-open the wounds between the left and far left of the Democratic Party, erecting another obstacle for unity as the party heads into the 2016 election. Is the DNC's Trump-Russia conspiracy lawsuit a "political stunt?"Now, if you’re a Democrat, it keeps Russia in the news, as the...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said on Monday that he will vote for CIA Director Mike Pompeo to be the next secretary of State, making him the second Democrat to support Pompeo's nomination. "After meeting with Mike Pompeo, discussing his foreign policy perspectives, & considering his distinguished time as CIA Director & his exemplary career in public service, I will vote to confirm Mike Pompeo to be our next Secretary of State," Manchin said in a tweet. Pompeo likely already had the votes to be confirmed by the full Senate. With Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) expected to oppose him, Pompeo needed...

    It is sadly common for conservative presidents and political leaders to be portrayed in a less-than-flattering light in the left-leaning textbooks used in public school and college classrooms, but a new volume on American history gives a new spin on the term rush to judgment. Less than a year-and-a-half after taking office as Americas sitting president, Donald Trump is already being maligned in the pages of an upcoming high school history text which insinuates that he and his supporters are driven by racism and that he is mentally unfit to serve as our Commander-in-Chief. Textbooks rarely receive a high profile...
  • Pompeo: A Proven Leader for the State Department

    04/22/2018 9:45:43 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 3 replies ^ | April 22, 2018 | Ken Blackwell
    Whenthe news broke on Tuesdaynight that CIA Director Mike Pompeo had met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, I was not surprised. Pompeo had long ago established his importance to this administration and his understanding of geopolitics. Pompeos skills are precisely why the president nominated him to be the next Secretary of Stateand why its so absurd that Democrats are reluctant to confirm him.Considering theincreasing gridlock in the Senate over President Donald Trumps nominees, this is a good time to remind our Democratic friends of Pompeos many qualificationsqualifications that have only increased since he earned Democratic support to become CIA...

    Gov. Eric Greitens was charged Friday with felony computer tampering stemming from his use of a veterans charitys donor list ahead of the 2016 election. The charge which is essentially electronic theft is the second felony charge the governor has faced in two months. He goes to trial next month for invasion of privacy. The embattled first-term governor and former Navy SEAL has denied any criminal wrongdoing and vowed to remain in office despite a chorus of fellow Republicans calling for him to resign or face impeachment. St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner is overseeing both cases against...

    Washington (CNN)On Wednesday, the Republican governor of Missouri asked for a temporary restraining order against the Republican attorney general of Missouri, who is also the leading candidate to represent the GOP against Sen. Claire McCaskill (D) in the fall. The governor, Eric Greitens, made the move to keep the AG, Josh Hawley, from pursuing an investigation into the possibility that he broke the law when he used a fundraising list from a non-profit to collect funds for his political campaigns.

    As bad as the situation is with Greitens, the trend is actually in his favor, isn't it, with so many serious and growing problems in his prosecution? Even establishment KMOX and silly Charlie Brennan are calling out how bad the prosecution is. So, what the hell is going on with Hawley? I think he is an idiot. How much stupider can MO Republicans get?

    JEFFERSON CITY Leaders in Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens own party plan to call for a special session to weigh whether to impeach the governor following a bombshell report detailing allegations of sexual coercion and blackmail that has both Republicans and Democrats calling for his resignation. House Speaker Todd Richardson, R-Poplar Bluff, held a press conference Wednesday on the heels of a report detailing allegations he called "beyond disturbing" that were made by the woman at the center of the scandal. He said a special House committee investigating allegations against Greitens would need to continue its work beyond the May 18...

    Missouri state Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, blasted white Democrats on the Senate floor Tuesday, saying theres no difference between them and members of the Republican Party. Chappelle-Nadal said Democratic Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill should add slavery reparations to the national Democratic platform as she says both parties have failed African-Americans, the Kansas City Star first reported. Chappelle-Nadal gained widespread notoriety last year for a Facebook post longing for President Donald Trumps assassination and a later tweet comparing him to Adolf Hitler, but her comments this week honed in on members of her own party. "Neither one of them give...

    The Democrat's rival this time around is the state's attorney general a young, polished, Stanford-and-Yale-educated former clerk to Chief Justice John Roberts. Sen. Claire McCaskill needs another miracle. The Missouri Democrat swept into office with a little less than 50 percent of the vote in the 2006 Democratic wave. Six years later, she provided an assist to a Republican rival during the primary and then defeated him in the general election after he said women's bodies have a way to "shut the whole thing down" if pregnancies are the result of "legitimate rape." Now, in a year in which...

    St. Louis is no longer one of the top 20 largest metropolitan areas in the country. Newly released US Census Bureau numbers show the city's population declined by more than 4,500 people to just over 308,000 residents. That's the largest drop since the 2010 census. The St. Louis region is now 21st on the list of the nation's metro areas. The Baltimore area, which had been ranked 21st, swapped spots on the population list with the St. Louis region. The City of Baltimore saw a drop in population greater than St. Louis city, but Baltimores loss represented a 0.9 percent...

    ST. LOUIS A condemned Missouri inmate faces a potentially gruesome and painful execution because of a rare medical condition that compromises the mans veins and causes multiple tumors in his head and throat, his attorney said Sunday. Russell Bucklew is scheduled to die by injection Tuesday evening for killing a former girlfriends new boyfriend in 1996 in eastern Missouri. Bucklew, 49, was moments away from execution in May 2014 when the U.S. Supreme Court halted it amid concerns about Bucklews medical condition. He suffers from cavernous hemangioma, a rare ailment that causes weakened and malformed blood vessels, as well...

    In 2008, John Michael Finley a student at the prestigious performing arts school at Roosevelt University came home to Lebanon after his spring semester only to hear bad news. His father told him that Roosevelt University was simply too expensive, and hed need to finish his college education elsewhere. This news didnt necessarily bode well for his aspirations as an actor, yet Finley took it in stride. But only a few weeks later, he and his family were shaken by tragedy. On May 31, 2008, Finleys 21-year-old brother, Army Specialist James M. Finley, was killed in Jalalabad City,...

    You dont have to go back to the 1600s and Salem, Massachusetts. Just look at whats happening to Republican Governor Eric Greitens in the state of Missouri in 2018. A Democrat prosecutor in St. Louis, Kim Gardner, has indicted the sitting Republican Governor. Its an astonishing caseand an abuse of the legal system unlike anything weve seen in recent memory. Heres what we know: The prosecutor admitted in court that she brought the indictment without the evidence to win the case. In fact, in open court, she had to beg and plead with the judge for more time to gather...

    Is Montana Democratic Sen. Jon Tester running scared? That could be the case, or it could be that he just knows his state. His latest ad features him touting bills he co-sponsored that were signed into law by Trump. The Washington Postadded that some of these bills are also not ones of great significance, like the tax bill for example. One of them named a mountain after a conservationist, but Trumps name is attached to it. Still, any red state Democrat running this year knows he or she will be fighting for their political lives. Their states voted for...
