  • Jeremy Corbyn told to resign by Labour MPs as Syria vote engulfs his leadership (Britain)

    The Telegraph ^ | 11-27-2015 | Christopher Hope, and Peter Dominiczak
    Jeremy Corbyn should resign over his "unacceptable" behaviour towards Syria air strikes vote, former Labour ministers have said as the first senior figures in the party break cover against his leadership. Ex-ministers Fiona Mactaggart and John Spellar have urged the Labour leader to take the "sensible" decision to stand down because of the damaging divisions his leadership is creating. Former Home Office minister Ms Mactaggart said his position had become “unsustainable” while fellow ex-minister Mr Spellar said Mr Corbyn’s behaviour over the Syria vote had been “unacceptable”. A third ex Labour minister minister Frank Field said that the party "needs...
  • Democrats push to prevent gun sales to terror-list suspects

    Associated Press ^ | Nov 21, 2015 3:24 AM EST | Alan Fram and Michael Biesecker
    Congressional Democrats are trying to build support for an effort to bar gun purchases by terror suspects, hoping to take advantage of the same public anxieties about security that gave Republicans a ringing House victory. The Democratic push seems likely to fall victim to opposition from the National Rifle Association and congressional gun-rights backers, chiefly Republicans, who have smothered firearms curbs for years. If the Republicans who control Congress block votes on the proposal, Democrats hope to profit politically by winning sympathy from angry voters. ...

    Daily Signal ^ | 11/13/15 | Hans von Spakovsky
    It's bad enough having a state hold an election that is racially discriminatory. Now we have a judge willing to allow it to move forward. That would be federal district court Judge J. Michael Seabright (a George W. Bush appointee, surprisingly enough). He's refused to issue an injunction to stop an election in Hawaii to set up a separate government that excludes anyone who doesn't meet the state's definition of "Native Hawaiian." Seabright's deplorable decision in Akina v. State of Hawaii is on an emergency appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals--which, unfortunately, doesn't always seem to believe in...

    NBC ^ | 11/4/15 | Natalie Johnson
    On Tuesday night, history was made in the state of Kentucky. Voters elected the first African-American to statewide office, making Jenean Hampton Kentucky's new lieutenant governor. Hampton, who ran as the now Governor-elect Matt Bevin's running mate, is an outspoken tea party supporter, making her a rare find among her white counterparts. She's also a newcomer to the political arena. Last year, the 58-year-old ran for her first political seat against Jody Richards, the longest-serving state representative in Kentucky history. Hampton lost, but gained an endorsement from Kentucky Senator and Republican Presidential Candidate Rand Paul.

    Republicans held onto the Virginia Senate in fiercely contested elections Tuesday, leaving Gov.

The outcome was a blunt rebuke to McAuliffe (D), who had barnstormed the state with 24 events over the past four days and who portrayed the elections as a make-or-break moment for his progressive agenda.

    In the ongoing fight between Democrats and Republicans over election procedures like voter ID and early voting, the Democrats are supposedly the champions of higher turnout and reducing barriers to participation. But when it comes to scheduling off-cycle elections1 like those taking place today, the Democratic Party is the champion of voter suppression. Indeed, few people will vote today. Many elections are taking place, but almost all are for local offices. School boards, for example, are up for election in Houston; Fairfax County, Virginia; Charlotte, North Carolina and in hundreds of other communities that oversee the education of millions of...

Rick Santorum and Ted Cruz refused to criticize Trump or say whether they believe Obama is a Christian, instead slamming reporters for asking about the incident. Jindal said it wasn't a candidate's "role" to correct a questioner -- but also said he would have pointed out the U.S.'s anti-discrimination values.

The annual Netroots Nation conference has attracted thousands of liberal activists, the core of the Democratic Party's base, to the 100-degree-plus desert heat. It attracted its latest hero, Elizabeth Warren. It has attracted two Democratic presidential candidates. But someone it could not attract was Hillary Clinton, the person most likely to need its attendees' help at the top of next November's ballot. "Major unforced error.
