    Do you remember when Donald Trump’s “inexperience” terrified Democrats? That was before it looked as if Oprah might run for president. On Sunday at the Golden Globes, Oprah Winfrey gave a speech condemning sexual harassers and repeatedly warning abusers that “their time is up.” Oprah’s oratory had the left and the mainstream media — but I repeat myself — giddy with the possibility of a Democratic presidential bid. From its official Twitter account, NBC wrote, “Nothing but respect for OUR future president,” accompanied by a picture of Oprah. It has since taken the tweet down. CNN started an Oprah 2020...

    A host of celebrities are already backing her possible candidacy. "I want her to run for president," Meryl Streep said after Winfrey's speech. Rev. Jesse Jackson wrote Oprah "is eminently qualified to be President. She is a patriot, she has integrity ... she can raise our moral standing in the world." Her possible candidacy also received support from MSNBC's Joy Ann Reid, comedian Larry Wilmore, actor John Stamos, and singer/actress Janelle Monae. But even as Oprah is often portrayed as an unblemished American success story, she would bring to any political campaign significant baggage. Specifically, here are 12 skeletons in...

    SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korean President Moon Jae-in credited U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday for helping to spark the first inter-Korean talks in more than two years, and warned that Pyongyang would face stronger sanctions if provocations continued. The talks were held on Tuesday on the South Korean side of the demilitarized zone, which has divided the two Koreas since 1953, after a prolonged period of tension on the Korean peninsula over the North’s missile and nuclear programs. North Korea ramped up its missile launches last year and also conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test, resulting in...

    I must start this piece with a statement: liberalism (as in neo-comunism re-branded) is a mental disorder. Now, let’s see about today’s news. There is an organization in the United States called the Committee to Protect Journalists, or CPJ for short. Now, to put things into perspective, President Trump announced that he’s going to be announcing the fake news awards to the most corrupt and biased of the mainstream media on Wednesday, January 17th: Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump The Fake News Awards, those going to the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media, will be presented to the losers...
  • Sources: Oprah Winfrey 'actively thinking' about running for President

    "President Winfrey" was the talk of the entertainment world after Winfrey accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes. And the "Oprah for president?" possibility was a top story on morning TV. The touchstone of her speech was the #MeToo movement. But her hopeful message -- "A new day is on the horizon" -- could have doubled as a campaign rallying cry. Many liberal-leaning celebrities and viewers certainly heard it that way. And that may have been exactly what Winfrey wanted. As some political strategists have pointed out in the past year, her fame and wealth could make...

    In case you missed the Golden Globes, talk from the night is whether Oprah Winfrey will run for president in 2020.It started off with host Seth Meyers’s joke about the White House Correspondents’ Dinner when he said Donald Trump wasn’t qualified to be president.“Some have said that night convinced him to run. So, if that’s true, I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president! You do not have what it takes. And Hanks! Where’s Hanks? You will never be vice president. You are too mean and unrelatable. Now we just wait and see.”Oprah, who would receive the...
  • My thoughts on what will happen when NPV goes into effect

    01/03/2018 11:35:20 AM PST · by Mafe · 46 replies
    NPV was started back in 2007. Never mind that it already violates the law - as I understand states must get Congressional approval before entering into contracts that affect the federal government. So far, ever since 2007, the Democrat has won the popular vote in every presidential election and in every NPV state. When NPV gets enough states to reach 270, there will be a situation where one candidate wins the popular vote in a state but is denied the electoral votes from that state because of NPV. This alone would be enough to cause a lawsuit, and on top...

    Right Wing News ^ | December 12, 2017 | Rachel Alexander
    Republicans are hesitant to switch from our winner-take-all state laws allocating electors to the electoral college to using the National Popular Vote. The National Popular Vote Plan would award all of a state’s electors to the candidate who wins the most popular votes in all fifty states. There is a fear that such a move will benefit Democrats, since Democrats won the popular vote even though they lost the elections in 2000 and 2016. But the truth is, Republicans are likely going to lose their ability to win the necessary swing state of Florida in the future, and they can...

    President Donald Trump will announce Wednesday that the United States recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and that the State Department will begin a process to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.Trump will first announce that the “United States government recognizes that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel,” according to one of three senior administration officials who spoke with reporters on Tuesday. The officials conveyed that the change is a recognition of “reality” — both the historic reality that Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people and the Jewish faith since ancient times; and the modern reality that the...

    George Washington University recently spent half a million dollars inaugurating its new president over a three-day period, a price tag that comes after recent budget cuts and employee layoffs. When university president Thomas LeBlanc was sworn into office in November, the school spent about $500,000 on a three-day series of events, according to The GW Hatchet, the campus newspaper. The schedule of events, according to the university’s website, included a student brunch, a ninety-minute inauguration ceremony, an “inaugural celebration,” an invitation-only dinner at the Library of Congress, and a faculty-only reception at the president’s home.

    On November 8, 2016, the man I had been rooting for, and arguing for, and educating anyone who would listen to me for, was elected the 45th president of the United States. It might as well have been a football game I was watching as I cheered and yelled, rooting for my guy as the states were called. When Trump took Florida, I knew it was over. My guy was winning. Against all the odds and all the naysayers and all the protesting degenerates, and the Hollywood elites’ multi-million dollar fundraisers for Clinton, my man Trump was taking this thing all the way to...

    This is why any person seeking any office should know their responsibilities, duties and authorities granted under the Constitution before seeking for people to support them for office and taking an oath before God and the people to uphold that Constitution. In another pitiful excuse for an excuse for not investigating Hillary Clinton, President Donald Trump claims that he is "frustrated" that he can't order the Justice Department to investigate her. “But you know the saddest thing, because I’m the President of the United States I am not supposed to be involved with the Justice Department. I am not supposed...
