    Former Vice President Joe Biden criticized President Donald Trump without saying his name Saturday, telling a crowd of Florida Democrats last year’s election unleashed a coarseness that hadn’t been seen in decades but he said the party’s candidates can overcome that by showing disgruntled voters that they have solutions. […] “This past election cycle churned up some of the ugliest, ugliest realities that persist in our country. Civilized discourse and real debate gave way to the coarsest rhetoric, stoking some of the darkest emotions in this nation,” said Biden, 74. “I thought that after all these years we had passed...
  • VA Gov. McAuliffe panders to Muslims

    This past Friday, I visited a mosque in Sterling, VA to meet and hear from members our Virginia Muslim community. After a week of seeing hateful and divisive rhetoric coming from our executive branch, I thought it was important to make sure that those who might feel targeted right now know that the views of President Trump don’t speak for all of us. So today I’m asking you to sign your name to tell our every member of our Muslim and refugee community that they are welcomed in Virginia! I want members of our Muslim community to know that we...

The group, led by the SNP’s Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh, included SNP MPs Anne McLaughlin and Patrick Grady, as well as Labour’s former shadow equalities minister Dawn Butler and MP Naseem Shah.

    Charlotte, North Carolina (CNN)Hillary Clinton told a black congregation here Sunday morning that her own grandchildren will never feel the fear that many African-American children do because they are white and privileged. "I am a grandmother and like every grandmother, I worry about the safety and security of my grandchildren. But my worries are not the same as black grandmothers, who have different and deeper fears about the world that their grandchildren face," Clinton said. In her remarks, Clinton quoted 9-year-old Zianna Oliphant, who garnered national attention when she tearfully spoke about the recent police killings of African-Americans at a...

    Full headline: 'Justice!' 9/11 families WILL be able to sue Saudi Arabia for billions after Senate and House override Obama's veto on victims' bill Victims of 9/11 and their families were dramatically given the go-ahead to sue Saudi Arabia on Wednesday as Congress over-rode President Obama's veto on a bill allowing the lawsuits. In a dramatic day, the Senate voted first to overturn President Barack Obama's veto of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act. It voted 97 to one against the veto - a situation called 'embarrassing' by the White House, which is furious at the legislation.

    The hell with the conservative base, Rona. Keep on pandering to special interest groups It is way too early to decide if Kellie Leitch will be or should be chosen by the Conservative Party of Canada as its next leader. If she did nothing else last week, the orthopaedic pediatric surgeon-turned-politician showed one thing. There is very little difference between the CPC and the Liberal Party headed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Leitch came under fire after she mailed out a questionnaire asking, among other things, if immigrants to Canada should be screened for “anti-Canadian” values. The reaction to her...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton, who once insulted country star Tammy Wynette in defending her husband against adultery charges, has released a photo of her dressed as Dolly Parton in a birthday fundraiser for her hubby, who turns 70. "We make a really big deal of birthdays in my family - back when we were in the White House, Bill loved to surprise me with theme parties. There was the year he dressed up as James Madison (tights and all), and I'll never forget the time we did a Dolly Parton party - you have to see it to believe it,"...

    Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) was officially announced as Hillary Clinton’s running mate in Miami this afternoon as she introduced him as a “progressive who likes to get things done.” “Hey, guys. Thank you!” he said as he took the podium, before immediately launching into a message in Spanish. Kaine repeatedly referred to his missionary work in Honduras, where he learned to speak fluent Spanish. (snip) “In our administration in the first 100 days we’ll put forward a comprehensive immigration reform package that includes a path to citizenship,” he shouted.

    TOP Governor Cuomo Signs Legislation to Exempt... SHARE Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today signed legislation that eliminates sales tax on feminine hygiene products. The bill (A.7555-A/S.7838) exempts these products from local and State sales tax. “This is a regressive tax on essential products that women have had to pay for far too long and lifting it is a matter of social and economic justice,” Governor Cuomo said. “I commend Assemblywoman Rosenthal and Senator Serino on their strong advocacy and for hard work in passing this important legislation.” Feminine hygiene products have been taxable since the state sales tax was first...

    On Friday, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton pandered to a black congregation after the killing of two black men on Thursday. Clinton told the members that white people needed to listen to black people more. Clinton has been pandering to the black community for years, resulting in nothing but unfulfilled promises and continued lies. Sheriff Clarke also spoke on Black Lives Matter, Jesse Jackson and said White America needs to fight back against the Black Lives Matter false narrative to help fix things in this country. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUkS8eMPZvQDon’t forget to follow the Wayne Dupree Show on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.

    Extending an olive branch to Bernie Sanders and his supporters, Hillary Clinton on Wednesday will announce a plan to make in-state public colleges and universities free for students from families who make less than $125,000 a year. Sanders made free in-state tuition a core plank of his campaign for the Democratic nomination, and Clinton and Sanders discussed the issue in their meeting last month, according to a Clinton aide. Clinton often mocked that plan from Sanders during the primary, saying she didn't want taxpayers to pay for Donald Trump's kids' education. Her plan includes an income cap Sanders' did not....

    I wrote a piece a while ago about Barack Obama being mentally ill because of the fatal decisions he makes for this country's future and how he comes to conclusions to make them. Well, after you watch the video below, you'll see a woman who got so lost in the question, she needed a search and rescue team to find her. Democratic presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton isn't the smartest cookie in Washington, DC but then again everyone knows this. When she speaks, she had 4-5 hot words she has to say during her speeches to get an applause and keep her...

    Obama decided to commemorate Memorial Day (after denouncing the US military from Vietnam to Japan) by calling for "good healthcare" for veterans. President Obama called for veterans to receive better healthcare and good-paying jobs during a Memorial Day speech at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. “We have to be there not only when we need them, but when they need us,” Obama told the crowd of survivors who have lost loved ones in battle.

    Paul Manafort, a top aide to Donald Trump, said the presumptive Republican nominee is unlikely to pick a woman or minority for the position because "that would be viewed as pandering, I think." In a lengthy interview with the Huffington Post, Manafort also said Trump's selection needs to be well-seasoned in politics. "He needs an experienced person to do the part of the job he doesn't want to do. He sees himself more as the chairman of the board, than even the CEO, let alone the COO," Manafort said. The veteran political operative suggested that the highly anticipated choice should...

    Ted Cruz's campaign produced and released this attack ad overnight, after Donald Trump came out in favor of allowing transgender people to use the bathroom of their choice, rather than the bathroom corresponding to their birth. The Cruz campaign has seized on this issue as a clear indicator that Donald Trump is "not a conservative." "Leave it the way it is," Trump said. "There have been very few problems." "Should a grown man pretending to be a woman be allowed to use the women's restroom?" asks the Cruz campaign, calling the bathroom issue "PC Nonsense that is destroying America." "North...

    When Hillary Clinton revealed that she carries a bottle of hot sauce in her purse, some understandably speculated that she was pandering. Beyoncé, after all, made a reference to hot sauce in her latest single “Formation.” But, as Time Magazine suggests, the revelation is a very rare example of authenticity coming from the former secretary of state
