    Progressives furious after California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon shelves bill, citing cost concernsVermont Sen. Bernie Sanders lashed out Saturday at California Democrats for shelving an ambitious single-payer bill, urging them to vote on the health-care legislation estimated to cost $400 billion per year. California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon announced Friday that Senate Bill 562 had been pulled indefinitely because it “does not address many serious issues,” including “financing, deliver of care, [and] cost controls.” Mr. Rendon left open the possibility that the measure could be reconsidered, noting that this is the first year of the two-year legislative session, but Mr....

    What else can possibly go wrong with our great country, the former “shining city on the hill,” that is being tarnished day by day by influential anti-American groups with huge coffers? Liberals from California and smaller blue states are exerting their influence on the electoral process in red states, determined to flip them to blue, and, by and large, are succeeding with the exception of the most recent election in Georgia’s 6th district where Democrats spent over $23 million, the most in the history of the House of Representative elections ever. I’m still scratching my head trying to understand the...

    In a release issued on Wednesday, the Baltimore City Fraternal Order of Police was critical of the police department saying it is critically understaffed and that it has no long term plan of action to fight crime. FOP president Gene Ryan says the department cannot hire enough officers to catch up with attrition, and says the city has failed to properly manage the agency. “I really have a problem with elected officials being silent with what’s going on in the streets of Baltimore right now,” Ryan said. “I mean we have bodies dropping on a daily basis".

    People For The American Way (PFAW), a progressive advocacy group, sent an email to their subscribers list Wednesday attacking three judicial nominees ten hours after House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was shot practicing for the annual Congressional Baseball Game. The advocacy organization, which describes its vision as one in which everyone is “encouraged to participate in our nation’s civic and political life,” denounced John K. Bush, Damien Schiff, and Kevin Newsom on the basis of blogs and statements they made espousing conservative ideals. The three nominees, who liberal organization have scrutinized for their past statements and writing, were considered by...

    The MSM will deliver the message that the out-of-control hatred Progressives bear for President Trump HIS FAULT and not theirs Should the Barack Obama-led Resistance get one of their stoked-up crazies to assassinate President Donald Trump, (God forbid) they’ll be sure to say that their thoughts and prayers are with him —and always were. There will be no questions from the mainstream media about the 15 times celebrities so graphically envisioned violence against Trump and the GOP. (Breitbart, June 14, 2017

    Hodgkinson campaigned for Sanders in Iowa while the Vermont lawmaker was running for the Democratic presidential nomination last year, the Washington Post reports. Charles Orear, 50, of St. Louis, who worked alongside him, called Hodgkinson a passionate progressive who showed no signs of violence or malice toward others. “You’ve got to be kidding me,” Orear told the newspaper. “I met him on the Bernie trail in Iowa, worked with him in the Quad Cities area.” He said Hodgkinson is a “quiet guy,” “very mellow, very reserved,” who stayed with him at a fellow Sanders’s supporters home in Illinois. “He was...

    A pro-immigration advocate says the hard-hit mostly white working-class communities in the United States must be wheeled into “political hospice care,” and a Washington Post columnist commended his solution “as a way forward.” “Economic dislocation and demographic changes are fueling discomfort and desperation among white working-class voters,” wrote WashPo columnist and editorial board member Jonathan Capehart, continuing: While [university professor and author] Justin Gest says that both Republicans and Democrats have exploited these voters, he sees a way forward. “The only way of addressing their plight is a form of political hospice care,” [Gest] said. “These are communities that are on the...

    A plan to draft Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., to lead a third party has been launched by progressives who are frustrated with the Democrats, the Washington Examiner reported. Ahead of what is being called the “People’s Summit” in Chicago this weekend, the progressives say Sanders is the choice for a new political movement. Sanders is scheduled to speak at the summit, the website reported. “The majority of Americans are progressive and want a major new political party,” said a report by progressives in advance of the meeting. The 15-page report, called “From Resistance to Revolution,” has a “Draft Bernie for...

    Washington Examiner ^ | Jun 1, 2017 | Michael Barone
    Thomas Edsall, the longtime Washington Post reporter now writing on his New York Times blog, laments the increasing tendency of high-income Americans to vote Democratic. That leaves the Democrats with an increasingly affluent constituency, presumably unwilling (or less willing than others) to support redistributive policies like Bernie Sanders's proposal for higher tax rates on the affluent. "In the past," Edsall writes, "Democrats could support progressive, redistributive policies knowing that the costs would fall largely on Republicans. That is no longer the case. Now supporting these policies requires the party to depend on the altruistic idealism of millions of supporters who,...

    The Democrat Party and their running dog media count on the public having a short memory Long before an outsider captured American hearts with a promise to ‘Make America Great Again’, driving the global elite-led Democrats into the most frenzied of exiles, the same progressives who accuse the President Donald Trump administration of “colluding with Russia” had already sold America out to the Russians. “Within two years of Gorbachev’s ‘ouster’ (from the Soviet Union) Gorbachev Foundation/USA had moved into the disused military offices of the Presidio in San Francisco. There, with the fantastic view of the Bay to cheer him,...

    Once again, the left has attempted to show outrage over the rights of the American people being used to have credible debate. Our political class, along with the violent protest groups that they support have attempted to serve notice that those of us who believe in the American way must be silenced, and must be forced to keep our opinions and beliefs to ourselves. Between the progressives/ socialists dinosaurs called the Democrats, the socialists throughout our academia and the media, and the basement dwellers creating chaos in the country, it is going to get worse before it gets better.

    Four months into the Trump Administration, political activists with their congressional representatives on speed-dial may be running a tad short on cell phone minutes. Credo Mobile, a small national cellular carrier, sees that as a good business opportunity. Earlier this month, the company launched an unlimited data plan with a unique selling point. Its formal tagline–“Progress Without Limits”–appears in an online ad alongside images of Trump with a giant “X” over his mouth. That’s just part of Credo’s attempts to align itself with the “resistance,” though it’s in line with the values the company has espoused since its founding–and part...

    The media, political establishment, and bureaucratic deep state will stop at nothing to derail the Presiden The media smells blood in the Potomac River. They sense the President they hate could be removed from office. Never mind that he won a landslide, winning electoral votes in 31 states. The media hate the President’s agenda and they hate that he defied their wishes and expectations by winning last November. What has happened since his election is the equivalent of an attempted media coup d’état. According to the Media Research Center (MRC), 89% of the coverage of President Trump by the network...

    The recent violence that's marked our college campuses is seeping into the rest of society, and the vast majority of it comes from the intolerant Left. Something is wrong with the American Left. The recent spate of violent protests on college campuses has been well-documented, but the violence and intolerance championed by left-wing student activists is beginning to creep off campus and into mainstream public life. The reason for this is straightforward enough: although progressives pride themselves on their putative tolerance and diversity, the imperatives of leftist politics are fundamentally illiberal. Justice imposed through power is the philosophical foundation of...

    Those of us who fall on the right of the center of the political spectrum frequently find ourselves at a loss when trying to communicate with those who don't. Accordingly, we’ve come up with some tongue-in cheek conversational stratagems that will enable you to make small talk with true believers on the Left. You may want to try these out on hard-core conservatives first: If they guffaw, odds are, progressives won't: • What do you really think of Donald Trump? • Is homophobia the fear of homogenized milk? • Do misogynists actually give massages? • Is xenophobia the fear of...

    It wasn’t a Cinco de Mayo party. It had no sombreros or tacos, as far as anyone knows. Yet the University of Chicago’s Phi Gamma Delta, known casually as FIJI, has nonetheless been reported for the “bias incident” of throwing a party where attendees wore construction outfits. Relevant to know: Its fraternity house has been “under renovation and construction for two years.” But activists don’t care about context. If the left-wing arbiters of cultural appropriation get their way, FIJI’s members could face disciplinary action. The Chicago Maroon reports that the party was originally scheduled for May 5, but its start...

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Students booed, and many turned their backs on Education Secretary Betsy DeVos as she gave the keynote address at Bethune-Cookman University’s commencement Wednesday afternoon. Many students and alumni had objected to having DeVos as speaker in part because they said the outreach by President Trump and the education secretary to historically black schools is an empty gesture. But the president of the university defended her work as a philanthropist and her commitment to education. Graduates came into the auditorium smiling, many with flowers and other decorations plastered on their mortar boards, and listened to the ceremony...

    One reason the Democrats don't get the credit they deserve is, I hope, obvious. Racism and other variations of bigotry prevent certain people from hearing certain messages despite messages being sent. Hillary Clinton had a plan to help white working-class voters in states she lost to President Donald Trump. But because she was Clinton and Trump was Trump, that message was barely heard by voters who needed to hear it most. George Orwell once made a distinction between nationalism and patriotism. Nationalism, he said in 1945, is "the habit of identifying oneself with a single nation or other unit, placing...

    President Trump may not be running for California insurance commissioner but that doesn’t mean he won’t be a political target in the campaign. State Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) devoted his first online ad in the 2018 race to depicting Trump as anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-healthcare and a climate change denier. Lara urged voters to support his campaign for insurance commissioner so he can protect California from Trump’s reach. “His hate has only made me more determined to empower Californians to control their own lives,” Lara proclaims in the ad, which was released on Monday.
