  • Op-Ed: Joe Biden: No one can stay silent. No one can ignore justice

    LA Times ^ | 6/6/20 | Joe Biden
    Today, the pain is so raw it can be hard to keep faith that justice is at hand or that we will ever achieve the more perfect union we all want. But ours is a union worth fighting for, and we are all called to the cause. We must become a nation where all men and women are not only created equal, but treated equally. We need to become the nation defined — in Dr. King’s words — not only by the absence of tension, but by the presence of justice. American history isn’t a fairy tale with a guaranteed...

    The Hill ^ | 3/27/20 | Marina Pitofsky
    Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton jabbed President Trump on Friday, following the news that the United States now leads the world in confirmed coronavirus cases amid the pandemic. “He did promise ‘America First,’ ” Clinton tweeted, referring to the phrase the president has used since his successful 2016 campaign against her. The former secretary of State linked to The New York Times’s Thursday coverage of the U.S. officially leading the world in confirmed coronavirus cases. This was not the first time Clinton criticized Trump over his administration’s handling of the pandemic. She also tweeted Friday: Hillary Clinton ✔ @HillaryClinton...
  • Bernie Tells Black Student to Respect Police So He Doesn't Get 'Shot in Back of the Head'

    A day before President Trump addressed the annual gathering of the International Association of Chiefs of Police in Chicago, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) gave some rather shocking advice to a young black student at Benedict College in regards to how he should behave around a police officer if he's pulled over while driving. .@BernieSanders to black student on how to handle getting pulled over by the police: “Identify who the police officer is - respect what they are doing so that you don’t get shot in the back of the head.” — chris evans (@notcapnamerica) October 26, 2019 "I...
  • CBS’s King Prompts Bruce Springsteen to Bash Trump: ‘Frightening Time’ (UPOS alert!)

    For the second time in two days, CBS This Morning managed to twist a light segment into something political. Co-host Gayle King interviewed Bruce Springsteen, but decided to goad the liberal singer into discussing 2020. After playing a recent clip of Donald Trump King, King pressed, “So he's going back to 2016. This is now 2019. Are you surprised that he's trash talking you after all this time?” The journalist prompted, “I mean, a lot of people are very concerned about the direction of the country.” Springsteen replied, “It's just frightening. We're living in a frightening time. The stewardship of...
  • Beto dishonestly uses Kent State shooting to shame gun owners

    Former Texas congressman Robert "Beto" O'Rourke used the 1970 Kent State shooting to shame gun owners who showed up to his rally, but failed to mention that government employees were the ones pulling the trigger. At a Wednesday rally at Kent State University in Ohio, the 220 Democratic presidential candidate called out gun owners who attended his event carrying so-called "assault rifles," accusing them of trying to "intimidate" him and his supporters. "Yesterday, people brought assault weapons to our rally at Kent State—where 4 students were shot dead in 1970," O'Rourke tweeted Thursday. "I told them nobody should show up...
  • Elizabeth Warren Scrubs Website Of Native American DNA Results

    08/19/2019 12:02:37 PM PDT · by rktman · 43 replies ^ | 8/19/2019 | Chuck Ross
    Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has removed sections of her campaign website that had disputed claims about her heritage, including the results of a DNA test that showed she had scant traces of Native American ancestry. Until Sunday, Warren’s website included a video of the Democrat receiving the results of the genetic test, which showed that she had between 1/64th and 1/1024th Native American ancestry. Warren initially touted the results as a vindication of her claims throughout her academic career that she has Cherokee ancestry.

    President Donald Trump's order to declassify documents explaining the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation is "all nonsense," Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the House intelligence committee, told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Thursday night. Nadler said there's no "basis" to examine the origins of the FBI's Trump-Russia investigation. He called it an "imaginary scandal."

    Once considered a pariah by both political parties, the socialist senator from Vermont now has a realistic shot at the 2020 Democratic nomination. Polls have shown he has a leg up on Vice President Joe Biden and Sanders gave an impressive performance to a roaring crowd during a recent town hall hosted by Fox News. But that high may be coming to an end now that we have a window into what Commander in Chief Sanders would look like. A recent profile digging into Sanders’ foreign policy views illustrates a politician with little understanding of America’s role in the world...
  • John Kerry's Family Fights to Keep Peasants Away from Ancestral French Villa, Claiming (T)

    Complete header: "John Kerry's Family Fights to Keep Peasants Away from Ancestral French Villa, Claiming Terror Threat" Saint-Briac-sur-Mer on the Brittany coast in France is a private playground for the European elite. It's also the home of Les Essarts, the ancestral home of former Democratic presidential candidate and former Obama Secretary of State John Kerry. It has been in his family since 1923 and was the place he regularly vacationed as a child. But Saint-Briac is now a legal battleground between the French state and the uber-rich villa owners, including Kerry's family, who for decades have defied a French law...

    Hollywood despises President Donald Trump for dozens of reasons, but one stands out. He’s too crude and rude to be our commander in chief. Tinsel Town has a point. While Trump’s admirers relish his pugnacious spirit, only the most ardent Trump Train passengers cheer his worst rhetoric. So why can’t Hollywood stop upping the ante on it? How can we forget Robert De Niro, one of the greatest actors of his generation, crying “F-word Trump” at the last Tony Awards? It doesn’t get more crude than that. Even Hollywood’s “activists” embrace profanity to smite the commander in chief. Kathy Griffin...
  • On MSNBC, Michael Moore Rants Millions of 'Racist' Trump Fans Must Be 'Shunned'

    During MSNBC’s The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell on Wednesday, guest host Ali Velshi engaged in a lengthy interview with far-left documentary filmmaker Michael Moore. Velshi channeled his inner Hillary Clinton, referring to a large share of the American public as “angry, intolerant (and) hard to reconcile.” These comments present an eerie similarity to Hillary Clinton’s infamous dismissal of half of Trump supporters as “irredeemable” members of a “basket of deplorables.” Moore’s suggestion that the “quarter of the country” brought up by Velshi should be “shunned” also has a striking similarity to Clinton’s declaration that “you cannot be civil” with...
  • AFL-CIO’s Trumka: Trump ‘Has Done More to Hurt Workers Than to Help Workers’

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” AFL-CIO chief Richard Trumka said President Donald Trump has “hurt workers.” On Trump’s performance for workers, Trumka said, “Unfortunately, to date, the things that he has done to hurt workers outpace what he’s done to help workers. He hasn’t come up with an infrastructure program that could put a lot of us back to work. He overturned a regulation that would deny over 5 million overtime that they would’ve had. He overturned some health and safety regulations that will hurt us on the job.” He continued, “Wages have been down since the...

  • Nancy Pelosi Just Referred to 9/11 As An 'Incident'

    07/27/2018 7:38:37 AM PDT · by rktman · 42 replies ^ | 7/27/2018 | Leah Barkoukis
    In trying to make the case that Democrats are tougher on protecting the border than Republicans, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi referred to the Sept. 11 attacks as merely an “incident.” That “incident,” of course, killed nearly 3,000 Americans in the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil. Pelosi’s comment came during a discussion about the Trump administration’s positions on immigration and its claims about how Democrats are weak on border security. The California Democrat made the case that Republicans aren't actually that strong on this issue because they did not implement some of the recommendations from the 9/11 Commission. “We...

    Obama made a big speech in South Africa, and all I can think is, Same old Obama. His techniques are all there: nods to the opposition, odd things thrown into sequences of events to deflect attention from his record, and a view of the world that hasn't changed a bit since his days of reading Tom Friedman. Heck, he probably still reads Tom Friedman, and golfs with him out on the tony, gated links, too. He blathers on about the wonders of globalism and technology, and then takes credit for all of the "progress." Progress, progressivism, get it? He calls...

  • Statue of Liberty Climber Inspired By Michelle Obama

    Therese Patricia Okoumou, the woman who scaled the Statue of Liberty on Independence Day in protest of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, explained Thursday that former first lady Michelle Obama motivated her. Okoumou appeared in federal court Thursday, pleading not guilty on charges of trespassing, interfering with agency functions and disorderly conduct. Okoumou, who was surrounded by approximately 50 supporters during her roughly six-minute hearing, told a federal judge she understood the counts against her. Court papers also charged Okoumou with resisting arrest by refusing to leave the perch where Lady Liberty's feet stand, roughly 100 feet above ground. She was...

    Michael Bloomberg is revving up to run for president in 2020, making him both the oldest and richest person to seek the job. A source close to the former three-term mayor says the move is fueled in part by regret that he didn’t stay in the race in 2016, because he feels he could have either won outright or prevented Donald Trump from winning.

    As they did last week along with the other networks, ABC led its Monday morning Good Morning America by hyping complaints from Democrats and liberals about the Trump Administration border policy. Correspondent Marcus Moore’s report even touted a celebrity’s curse-filled rant at the GOP without acknowledging the profanity. GMA started off its obsessive negative coverage with a report by White House correspondent Cecilia Vega, noting disapproval from first ladies Bush and Trump. “This is a policy that’s just eating away in terms of controversy at this White House,” Vega hyped, before adding that both Melania Trump and former First Lady...
  • Chelsea Tells Guardian Writer How Brits Should Respond to Trump's Visit

    Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election in part because she wrote off large swaths of the country. She called Donald Trump supporters "deplorable." Now, her daughter Chelsea Clinton is using similar language to describe the commander-in-chief. In an interview with The Guardian at the Clinton Foundation office in Manhattan, Chelsea sounded off on some of Trump's specific policies and "racist" rhetoric. The fawning Guardian writer, who noted Chelsea's "impressive fluency in British current affairs," then asked Chelsea for advice on how Brits should respond to Trump's visit in July. "If I lived in Britain I would show up to...
