  • Mayor Walsh: Huffington Post's slam of top prosecutor not payback from his staff

    07/07/2016 6:15:29 AM PDT · by outpostinmass2 · 3 replies
    A Huffington Post article slamming U.S. Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz for prosecuting “the good guys” has raised questions over whether Mayor Martin J. Walsh is waging a PR counteroffensive against the feds after they indicted two top City Hall aides on extortion charges. Walsh’s chief of staff, Daniel A. Koh, formerly served as chief of staff to Huffington Post Editor Arianna Huffington and as general manager of Huffington Post Live before joining the mayor’s inner circle. Walsh told the Herald last night that he and his staff had no involvement in yesterday’s Huffington Post story titled, “This Federal Prosecutor Is...

    The activists, including Naomi Oreskes and Bill McKibben, recently coordinated with attorneys general (AG) culminating with a March 29 press conference, led by New York AG Eric Schneiderman and joined by former Vice President Al Gore. There the “unprecedented coalition”—as Schneiderman’s press release called it—was announced: the newly formed AGs for Clean Power. Though “vague” on their specific plans, 17 AGs (16 Democrats and 1 Independent) have, as the Huffington Post reported: “committed to pursuing an all-levers approach” to, as Gore said: “hold to account those commercial interests that have been, according to the best available evidence, deceiving the American...

    The vice president said he’d like to take away federal funding from those universities. Less than a month after Vice President Joe Biden penned an emotional letter to the woman sexually assaulted by Brock Turner, the White House has announced sweeping new rules for future visits to colleges campuses. Under the policy, President Barack Obama, Biden, their wives and members of the Cabinet will no longer visit higher education institutions where officials are deemed to be doing a poor job tackling the troubling frequency of reported sexual assaults, according to The Washington Post’s Juliet Eilperin. The move is the latest...

    A new website has been launched in order to anonymously expose alleged “racists” to the mobs of the internet. The site, called Hello Racist!, is designed so in order to “expose racism, fight ignorance and be the place where people of all races, religion, and political beliefs can share their stories.” Users who see a racist post on social media can upload a screenshot or link to the website, where people can consequently rate the level of racism and exposed and leave a comment to express their thoughts. Examples of some of the racism exposed include people who have referred...

    When a 25-year-old Syrian refugee living in Germany got a wardrobe from a charity group, he had no idea how valuable the contents would turn out to be. When the man, identified only as “Muhannad M.” by German news outlets, brought the piece of furniture home to his apartment in the city of Minden, he discovered it contained 50,000 euros — about $55,000 — in cash. It also held bankbooks, which included information that gave him access to accounts holding about 100,000 euros, according to a Minden Police press release. he money would have enabled Muhannad — who has been...
  • Donald Trump Launches Blatantly Anti-Semitic Attack Against Hillary Clinton

    Donald Trump tweeted a blatantly anti-Semitic image Saturday morning, causing an immediate backlash online and further confirming the Republican nominee is willing to sink to depths well beyond usual, acceptable bounds of politics. The tweet, posted at roughly 8:30 a.m., featured a picture of Hillary Clinton pasted over a backdrop of $100 bills with a six-pointed star — the Jewish Star of David — next to her face. “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!” the star read. THE HUFFINGTON POST This is not a dog whistle. It’s not subtle. It is anti-Semitic imagery aimed at a candidate who isn’t even Jewish.

    Back in April, Slate’s Michelle Goldberg offered the Hillary Clinton campaign some sage advice: “Fire Bill Clinton.” The Clinton campaign declined to take her suggestion, but perhaps they should give it another look. Bill Clinton is one of the most talented politicians of the past century, but his supposedly infallible skills continue to fail him when put in the service of someone other than himself. On Monday, Clinton was on a tarmac in Phoenix when he learned that the attorney general, Loretta Lynch, would soon be on the same tarmac. He delayed his flight so he could try to meet...

    “Allegations that Ellison and Carson are secret Muslim agents with extremist leanings are usually found among fringe groups online, often discussed in dire tones on poorly designed websites. Rarely, if ever, do such sentiments get read into congressional testimony, with the imprimatur that offers.” The media elites’ scorn for the unwashed masses is brimming over in this article: “fringe groups” who speak in “dire tones” on “poorly designed websites” couldn’t possibly be saying anything true or accurate, right? If your website design is poor, what you’re saying must ipso facto be false — not to mention “bigoted” and “Islamophobic”! And...
  • Mitt Romney Says He May Vote For His Wife Instead Of Donald Trump

    Mitt Romney still can’t see himself voting for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. However, he can’t bring himself to vote for the Democratic counterpart, Hillary Clinton, either. But the 2012 GOP nominee has a solution: putting his own wife’s name on the ballot. “It’s a matter of personal conscience,” Romney told CBS News’ John Dickerson Wednesday at the Aspen Ideas Festival. “I can’t vote for either of those two people.” Romney explained that he simply cannot get behind Trump’s divisive character. “Our nominee is saying, ‘Hey look it’s these people here. It’s these Mexicans coming across the border... it’s...
  • Report: Corey Lewandowski Lands CNN Gig

    Former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is joining CNN as a political commentator, according to a source familiar with the arrangement. It's a salaried position and will make Lewandowski exclusive to CNN, effective immediately. Trump fired Lewandowski on Monday, ending the tenure of the fiery operative who faced a steady string of controversies while guiding Trump's skeleton campaign operation to a shocking victory in the 2016 Republican presidential primary. That same afternoon, his first in-studio interview was with CNN's Dana Bash (an NBC News reporter caught up with him outside of Lewandowski's apartment as he headed down to the...

    Megyn Kelly laced into CNN on her show Thursday night, ripping her competitor for hiring Donald Trump's fired campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as a paid contributor. During a segment with media critic Howard Kurtz, Kelly noted that Lewandowski has "threatened more than one journalist in the course of this campaign," including with CNN's Noah Gray last November, when he warned the campaign embed "get back in the pen or he's f------ blacklisted." Lewandowski, Kelly continued before asking Kurtz for his opinion, "has had some very ugly language attributed to him when it comes to women and now he will be...

    Reporter Michelle Fields, who pursued battery charges against Donald Trump's now-former campaign manager, cut short a TV interview Monday night after the host pressed her about the contents of her new book. During a segment on NewsMax TV's "Steve Malzberg Show," host Steve Malzberg read a passage from Fields' book, "Barons of the Beltway: Inside the Princely World of our Washington Elite — and How to Overthrow Them." The excerpt, from a "note to the reader" at the beginning of the book, refers to the confrontation with Trump's former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski. "I lost my balance and nearly fell...

    MSNBC host Steve Kornacki discusses the latest 2016 election polls showing Clinton and Trump in a dead heat in several key battleground states with the hosts of NBC's Today Show: "It’s amazing," Kornacki said. "If you take the 2012 electoral map: Obama versus Romney, and kept it the same... If you can flip Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida, you’re the next president. For all of the trouble [Trump has] had, you’ve got them dead even in Ohio and Pennsylvania. [Polls showing him down in] Florida is bad news for him."

    Suddenly the picture becomes clear! If the U.S. says some people are on U.S. soil illegally and others are there legally, then the U.S. creates a culture in which some people have human rights and some don’t. But everyone deserves human rights. So, by modus tollens, we must abandon the concept that some people can be in the U.S. “illegally,” that some people are citizens and some aren’t. Open border for everyone!

    In an awkward interview with the Huffington Post, House Speaker Paul Ryan threatened to sue Donald Trump if he were to ban Muslim immigration or build a border wall with Mexico. Considering the current track record of suing Obama over abuses of power, this is little more than a confession of impotence. And yet it’s deeply troubling that a top Republican is willing to go to such lengths to fight for Muslim migration or for that matter illegal immigration in general.

    The Wisconsin State Journal ^ | June 19, 2016 | Chris Rickert
    An essay by an incoming UW-Madison doctoral student suggesting that violence might be the proper response to Donald Trump is drawing concern within the university’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Because apparently these days we’re a nation that is ready to nominate a buffoonish reality TV star for president and deem a “journalist” who excuses violence against that nominee as one of the “best-qualified applicants” at a world-renowned university. It all began with an essay self-described “smarmy liberal writer” Jesse Benn published on the Huffington Post earlier this month titled “Sorry liberals, a violent response to Trump is as...

    It must be pretty sweet to be a white swing voter. Political campaigns blow millions of dollars catering to your every whim. Politicians ask what you think before they step out on a major policy program, despite the fact that your views aren’t representative of the majority of Americans. The changing demographics of this country mean it’s well past time to stop obsessing over a shrinking population that’s out of sync with the right direction for this country. Continuing to cater to those voters can have dire consequences, in politics and more importantly in policies that deeply impact people’s lives....

    May 11, 2016 Michael Covel An insidious new fantasy is blooming in Washington, D.C, academia and the media… Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders dreams about it in between bong hits. It’s lovingly endorsed by “off the wall” left-wing economist Paul Krugman. And the ultra-progressive Huffington Post calls it “the idea that could revolutionize the 21st century.” The hype surrounding this “revolutionary” idea will soon be an everyday talking point. And if you’re a hard-working citizen who takes care of your own responsibilities, you should pay extra close attention… Because you’re about to get fleeced and forced to enjoy it… Utopian...
