    Jane Mayer said on Monday that Deborah Ramirez, who accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexually harassing her, told her New Yorker colleague Ronan Farrow that she couldn’t be sure of the Supreme Court nominee’s guilt. Confronted with a New York Times report indicating Ramirez expressed doubts about Kavanaugh’s guilt to former Yale classmates, Mayer said Ramirez shared those doubts before they published their bombshell report on Sunday. “To Ronan she said she wasn’t absolutely certain, she needed to make certain before she was going to say anything publicly. She remembered the specifics, the graphic specifics, and she tried to remember for...
  • Schiff: Rosenstein Should Not Resign Under Any Circumstances

    On Monday’s edition of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Adam Schiff (D-CA) stated Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein should not resign and it seems as though there is “a slow-moving Saturday Night Massacre.” Schiff said, “Rod Rosenstein should, under no circumstances, resign. If the president intends to obstruct justice, Rosenstein should require him to be fired. He shouldn’t take a step affirmatively and essentially let the president off the hook. This looks to me like a slow-moving Saturday Night Massacre. It seems like the only question is whether these steps take place now or they take...
  • Why does NY refuse to name the woman who admits that she falsely accused two men of rape?

    Why is the New York government hiding the name of a woman who admitted that she had falsely accused two men of rape after her false accusation caused them to spend 26 and 11 years in prison? I recently came across this New York Times article from May of this year.It says that two innocent men were falsely accused of rape, and were convicted largely based on the testimony of the alleged victim.One of the innocent men spent 26 years in prison. The other innocent man spent 11 years in prison.The woman now says that the rape “never happened.”The New York...

    Imagine what would ensue if someone on TV suggested that the Democrats were a party of "ignorant" women, or non-white people. Such a person would be forcibly defenestrated for racism/sexism before you could say "Roseanne Barr." But when it comes to white men, all's fair and unobjectionable. And so it was on today's Morning Joe that Donny Deutsch, discussing the Republicans' handling of the Kavanaugh confirmation, said: "You're seeing on display a metaphor of, like, what this party is, and just basically, just ignorant white men."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Morning Joe, normally the go-to place for Trump antagonism, was surprisingly supportive today of the Republican decision to move to a Judiciary committee vote on Kavanaugh next Wednesday, rejecting Dem demands for an investigation of Christine Ford's allegations. Mika Brzezinski accused the Democrats of "moving the goal posts." Joe Scarborough and Mike Barnicle scoffed at the idea of an FBI investigation: "investigate what?" Anti-Trump Republican Susan Del Percio said if Ford is not willing to testify on Monday, "what right does she have to delay this or ask for the FBI investigation?"Get the rest of the story and view the...

    Clinton says Trump supporters don't "fully appreciate what is potential under this presidency." Hillary Clinton predicted Tuesday that President Donald Trump will "wholesale fire people" in the White House and become increasingly unaccountable, if Democrats don't check his power by winning a majority of seats in the House or Senate in the November midterm elections. Clinton made the remarks during the former secretary of state's appearance on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show." "What I worry about, Rachel, is that after this election this president is going to wholesale fire people," Clinton said. " ... And if we [Democrats] don’t have...

    There is truly nothing sacred anymore. Not awards shows. Not sporting events. Not John McCain’s funeral. Not even 9/11. MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough has declared that President Trump is a “far graver threat to the idea of America” than the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. It all began with a tweet to a column he wrote in The Washington Post on the eve of 9/11. “Trump is damaging the dream of America more than any terrorist attack ever could,” Scarborough tweeted....

    Trump is ‘actively making the problem worse’ Hurricane Florence is now bearing down on North Carolina, and the media is looking to score political points. On MSNBC, host Chris Hayes invited meteorologist Eric Holthaus on to argue global warming is making hurricanes worse, and that President Trump is to blame. "We have a president that is denying the impacts of, you know, this hurricane season last year and this year and actively making the problem worse by, you know, not addressing this root cause of worsening storms,” Holthaus told to a nodding Hayes. On CNN, political analyst John Avlon, in...

Maddow claims Homeland Security "confirmed" this story. Problem: It's not true. Homeland Security was contacted and said its BS. FEMA contacted Merkley's office who told them, "It's a TV hit.

    During Wednesday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, host Joe Scarborough reacted to the highest amount of women ever being nominated for governor and House seats in November’s mid-term elections, declaring women to be the potential downfall of the GOP majority because President Donald Trump has “offended” and thus “activated” them. “I wonder if … mainstream conservatives in the age of Trump are going to underperform...That seems to be the overarching headline of all of these results (Note: from Tuesday's election results) — that women have not just been offended by Donald Trump, but they have been activated to such a level...

    Former President Obama deserves more credit for the strong U.S. economy than President Trump, according to MSNBC's Joe Scarborough. "Yeah, it's a strong economy," Scarborough told "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski. "But Mika, this is not an economy that Donald Trump gave us. This is an economy that's part of the seven year ongoing recovery." Scarborough also said this "isn't the greatest economy ever" and that it "isn't close to the greatest economy ever." "Barack Obama had more people getting jobs his last 16 or 18 months than they had jobs during Donald Trump's first 16 or 18 months," he...

    On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough said: "On a serious note . . . let's move beyond this fall. And if Donald Trump decides to run for re-election, and actually, count me as one of the few people who don't believe he will. But if Donald Trump does decide to run for re-election, that's when Americans take a serious look at whoever's sitting in the Oval Office and they ask, does he or she have the leadership qualities that we need to run America?"

    Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) on Tuesday night released documents appearing to show the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) diverted nearly $10 million from the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The documents, first reported by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, detail the agency’s funding redirections for fiscal 2018 and show that millions of dollars were diverted to ICE from several agencies. Those diverted funds, totaling $33.1 million, “will provide funding in support of higher priority detention and removal requirements than those for which originally appropriated,” according to the documents. According to MSNBC, Merkley believes the transfer from...

Joshua Caplan of Breitbart breaks it down: "Scarborough’s piece, titled “Trump is harming the dream of America more than any foreign adversary ever could,” begins with the virulent Trump critic chronicling various foreign policy blunders committed by previous White Houses following the fateful terror attacks on September 11, 2001.

    Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas) former campaign spokesperson said that it’s “possible” for Cruz to lose his reelection bid to Democrat Beto O’Rourke. Rick Tyler, who served as Cruz’s former communications director during his 2016 presidential run, appeared on MSNBC Sunday and admitted that Cruz could lose in the red state. “As the former Cruz strategist, it does seem as though the signs are that Ted Cruz might actually lose this race?” MSNBC host Kasie Hunt asked. Tyler said that even in a predominately Republican state, O’Rourke is posing a real challenge for the senator. “It’s possible

    Media bias seems to get worse by the week. Even a work week shortened by Labor Day delivered on that depressing trend. Journalists cheered protests at the Supreme Court nomination hearing for Judge Brett Kavanaugh and swallowed a silly Internet hoax. Then there was the anonymous New York Times op-ed defending a “steady state” rebellion against President Trump. It was a new low for journalists devoted to overturning a democratic election. Call it the pičce de résistance. The New York Times trumped opposition leaders at CNN and The Washington Post. The three battle daily for liberal attention and journalistic kudos...

    A Hillary Clinton presidency would have been even more disruptive that the current Donald Trump administration, historian and prolific author Niall Ferguson told CNBC on Thursday. "There would have been an almost immediate impeachment process," Ferguson said in an interview with CNBC's Steve Sedgwick at the Ambrosetti Forum in Italy on Thursday. "More importantly, Trump supporters would have bought the story that the election had been rigged and you would have had Trump supporters with their pitchforks, or more likely semi-automatics, in a very ugly mood," he added. An anonymous op-ed published by The New York Times on Wednesday painted...
