    Accepting a lifetime achievement award during Sunday's annual Screen Actors Guild awards, actor Actor Robert De Niro took a veiled jab at US President Donald Trump. Stepping onto the stage to a rousing standing ovation and cheers at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Sunday evening, De Niro said, 'there´s right, and there´s wrong and there's common sense, and there´s abuse of power, and as a citizen I have as much right as anyone else ... to voice my opinion.' 'And if I have a bigger voice because of my situation, I´m going to use it whenever I see...
  • What Don't You Forgive John McCain For?

    Ok. I'm tired of John McCain lackies, i.e. Meghan McCain, trashing conservatives for trashing her father. She seems to think Daddy was the end-all/be-all for the last hundred something years. However, I seem to remember the McCain rule as something more sinister. What I remember J. McCain for is trashing Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin rescued is moribund candidacy from the grave. She infused the Republican Party with energy! But, alas, McCain couldn't follow-through. He wouldn't trash Barack Hussein Obama and he wouldn't talk bad about his politics. In the end, he wasted ALL of our time and energy for a...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has announced a deal with Senate Democrats to fund the government and set spending levels for defense and nondefense programs over the next two years. The legislation would avert a government shutdown on Friday, when federal funding is due to expire, and boost defense and nondefense programs. It also lifts the debt ceiling to March 2019, which White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders hailed as a decision that would move Congress away from "crisis-to-crisis budgeting." The deal is backed by McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), and will almost certainly be...

    STENE SCHMIDT [Republican Strategist]: Well, this convocation that we saw tonight, Brian, the coming together of the three coequal branchs of government, there is a veneer of normalcy to it all. The president went in there as presidents do and addresses the nation. But left unsaid was that this president comes in, the most unpopular president this early in his tenure in the history of polling. Somebody who has spent the last year leading a faction in this country, dividing the country. Somebody who is besieged by a criminal investigation, talking about the importance of our law enforcement organizations and...

    This article is part of the Opinion Today newsletter. You can sign up here to receive the newsletter each weekday. When it comes to President Trump and race, there is a predictable cycle. He makes a remark that seems racist, and people engage in an extended debate about whether he is personally racist. His critics say he is. His defenders argue for an interpretation in which race plays a secondary role (such as: Haiti really is a worse place to live than Norway). It’s time to end this cycle. No one except Trump can know what Trump’s private thoughts or...

    Earlier today, President Trump denied saying that the TPS countries such as Haiti were "sh*tholes". I knew there were Democrats in the meeting, so I figured they would come forth with their side, and sure enough: Geoff Bennett ‏ @GeoffRBennett Sen. Dick Durbin now knocking down Trump's denial: "It's not true. He said those hateful things, and he said them repeatedly." People who attended the immigration meeting where Trump made his "shithole" comment: -President Donald Trump -Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) -Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) -Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) -Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) -Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) -Rep. Robert Goodlatte...

The dippity doo-dah prof then announced the flunkers would get curves on their grades to increase them above D's and F's - but none for the higher achieving students.

    Do I smoke too much pot? It’s a question I’ve asked myself over the years, and it raised its uncomfortable head this week as I absorbed the results of the latest National Survey on Drug Use and Health. The first thing to note about the report is the good news. One of the major and legitimate fears of those who have opposed legalization is that teen use would increase. Weed is genuinely harmful to the developing adolescent brain and those of us who passionately advocated legalization argued that making it legal would actually make it harder for teens to get...

    We get it. Joe Scarborough doesn’t approve of Donald Trump. Two weeks ago, we noted the Morning Joe host calling the president a “jackass.” Things are escalating, and there appears to be no sense of decorum left on Morning Joe. This morning, Scarborough called Trump a “schmuck” – a term that literally means penis in Yiddish, and is used as a pejorative to express contempt for a person. View the video here.
  • Bernie Sanders, Self-Hating Jew, Blasts Israeli "Occupation"

    If you've ever heard the term "self-hating Jew," but didn't know what it meant, look no further than Vermont Senator Berni Sanders. Sanders, in a video message to the hard-left Israeli Meretz party to mark the end of the Six Day War in 1967 and “50 years of Occupation,” said, “The occupation must end.” Sanders commenced his loathing of the Jewish state by referring to Meretz, which only has five seats in Israel’s 120-seat Knesset, as “Israel’s most prominent political organization.” Gushing that Meretz stands “for many of the same values that progressives are fighting for here in the United...

    Shortly before the presidential election, GOP public relations worker Steve Schmidt saw Hillary Clinton “trending over 400” electoral college votes. He also predicted that Dems would retake the Senate and were “close” to retaking the House. We know how all that played out. So you probably want to take this morning’s comments from the man who brought you John McCain’s 2008 campaign with a gargantuan grain of salt. Asked on Morning Joe what he would tell President Trump regarding his assertion that President Obama tapped his phones, Schmidt went on a rant. Lowlights: “This makes you look unhinged . ....

    Mike Barnicle might not bring much to the table, but he is still capable of passing along nasty remarks from unnamed sources. On today's Morning Joe, discussing Nikki Haley's preparations for her confirmation hearing as UN Ambassador, Barnicle said, "I was told by somebody within the world of diplomacy and international relations that Nikki Haley makes Sarah Palin sound like Henry Kissinger." Joe Scarborough seemed to have intentionally teed Barnicle up to take his anonymous shot at Haley, asking him "what are you hearing about her?" After Barnicle's gossip, Scarborough weighed in, saying that he'd been hearing for weeks "real...

    Well, this is what one would call bad political optics. With the dual breaking news events surrounding potential terrorism and a foreign diplomat being shot to death, White House pool reports showed that President Barack Obama headed to a country club in Hawaii near his rental house, where he is vacationing. The first email shows that Obama has directed his staff to keep him updated on the situation in Turkey regarding the assassination of the Russian Ambassador. From the White House, per Principal Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz: “This morning the President was briefed by his National Security Team on...

    When millionaires and billionaires give you loads of money to make you a president, and then you fail, there comes a time for comeuppance. For Hillary Clinton and her team that time was Thursday night. A dejected, defeated and glum looking former Democrat presidential candidate strolled into the famous Plaza Hotel in New York City, with her husband former President Bill Clinton, running mate Tim Kaine, daughter Chelsea Clinton, son-in-law Marc Mezvinsky and campaign manager John Podesta, to explain to elite donors why their cash was not enough to defeat the will of the American people. Somehow, Hillary made it...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | November 20, 2016 | Ryan Lovelace
    Incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said he wants President-elect Trump to select a "mainstream" candidate to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. Asked by NBC on Sunday whether he was comfortable filibustering any Trump nominee for the court, Schumer dodged answering the question directly. "I hope that President Trump picks a mainstream candidate," Schumer said. "A mainstream candidate is somebody you may not agree with on every issue, but basically believes in precedent." NBC's Chuck Todd interrupted Schumer and asked, "What does that mean? Can he nominate somebody in your mind...
