    Early on in the coronavirus pandemic, Amanda Roy and her siblings considered bringing their 61-year-old mother, Anna Littlejohn, to live in their homes rather than in the Madison nursing home where she has spent nearly three years after developing a bone infection from a cyst on her knee. With other health problems including diabetes and high blood pressure, Littlejohn was especially vulnerable to COVID-19, an illness that has caused many of the state’s virus deaths as it has spread through long-term care facilities. But ultimately, Littlejohn’s children couldn’t make the logistics work to move her out of Maplecrest Rehabilitation and...

    RUSH: Have you noticed, by the way, have you noticed that the Democrats and the media criticism of the Trump administration on coronavirus is starting to vanish? If you havenÂ’t noticed that, pay special attention, because theyÂ’re starting to back off it. The Democrats, the media screaming about the governmentÂ’s lack of response to the coronavirus, theyÂ’re backing off of this, and IÂ’m gonna tell you why theyÂ’re backing off of it. TheyÂ’re backing off of it because itÂ’s not becoming the pandemic in this country that they were all expecting. And IÂ’ve got an audio sound bite here of...
  • John Kerry blames Britain for derailing Obama's plan for intervention in Syria

    Barack Obama’s plan for military intervention in Syria was abruptly derailed by David Cameron and British members of parliament, US secretary of state John Kerry claimed on Thursday. The American president said he would bomb the Syrian regime if it used chemical weapons but he did not follow through on his promise. The failure to enforce his stated “red line” after President Bashar al-Assad used sarin gas in a Damascus suburb in August 2013 is seen by some as the worst stain on Obama’s legacy. The British parliament’s vote against air strikes has long been cited by Obama and others...

    Former California Governor Jerry Brown told Congress on Tuesday that President Donald Trump and the Republican Party were responsible for the ongoing California fires because of their opposition to drastic climate change policies. “California’s burning while the deniers make a joke out of the standards that protect us all,” Brown told the House Oversight Committee on Tuesday, as quoted by the San Francisco Chronicle. “The blood is on your soul here and I hope you wake up. Because this is not politics, this is life, this is morality. … This is real.” Brown was testifying against efforts by the Trump...

    US Rep. Ilhan Omar suggested Monday that the press and her political foes are partly to blame for the demise of her marriage. “Ilhan and Ahmed have been the object of speculation and innuendo from political opponents and the media,” according to a statement from her lawyer, referring to the Minnesota congresswoman and her husband, Ahmed Hirsi, and which the rep said he was issuing “on behalf” of Omar. “This has taken a significant toll on Ilhan, Ahmed, and their three children. “As with all marriages, this is intensely personal and a difficult time for their family,” the statement added.
  • After Mass Shootings, Trump Blamed for 'Increasing Racism' — But Is White Racism Really Increasing?

    Immediately following two horrific mass shootings — one in El Paso, Texas, and another within a matter of hours in Dayton, Ohio — the blame game started. For many, culprit No. 1 is, of course, President Donald Trump. Presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) said: "There is a complicity in the President's hatred that undermines the goodness and the decency of Americans, regardless of what party. To say nothing in a time of rising hatred, it's not enough to say that, 'I'm not a hatemonger myself.' If you are not actively working against hate, calling it out, you are complicit...

    Let's begin with a reminder that my position on partisan blame after horrific acts of violence has been quite clear and consistent.  I believe it's almost always grossly unfair, and a cheap political smear, to pin mass murder on mainstream ideological opponents, even by implication.  Leave it to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to make the least fair point in the dumbest and ugliest way possible.  Take it away, lady: Ocasio-Cortez: Trump's immigration rhetoric is "directly responsible" for El Paso mass shooting— The Hill (@thehill) August 6, 2019 Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) late Monday said that President Trump's divisive rhetoric on...

    The white supremacist who rammed his car into a group of counter-protesters at a far-right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer, has asked a judge for mercy. Attorneys for James Alex Fields Jr., 22, blamed his behavior in part on the “trauma” he suffered by growing up knowing that his Jewish grandfather had murdered his grandmother before committing suicide, The Associated Press reported. Fields’ attorneys made the claim in a sentencing memo submitted to the United States District Court in Richmond, Virginia on Friday. Fields is scheduled to be sentenced on June 28 after pleading guilty in March...

    Given the volume of commentary describing Donald Trump as a uniquely polarizing figure—and the amount of time Democrats spend attempting to end his presidency—one might think he is among the most partisan Presidents in our history. But that’s not the message in the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal survey. Not that voters don’t give Mr. Trump a large share of the blame when asked who is responsible for “the partisanship that goes on in Washington.” In the June NBC/WSJ poll, 43% of respondents give the Trump administration “almost all” or “a major part” of the blame. When you consider that another...

    Now that the two year long Special Counsel investigation into the 2016 election is over, Attorney General Bill Barr has serious questions about how the investigation got started in the first place and whether spying on the Trump campaign was illegally conducted by the CIA, DNI and FBI. For weeks, U.S. Attorney John Durham has been looking into the situation. Now that the microscope has turned to the heads of U.S. intelligence agencies during the Obama administration, things are getting quite uncomfortable for former FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan. As...

    Hillary Clinton warned Democratic candidates for president that even if they do everything right on the campaign trail they can still have the election “stolen” from them, just like she did. "You can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you," Clinton said on Saturday during an “Evening with the Clintons” event in Los Angeles, California. Clinton has blamed nearly everything under the sun as the reason she lost the 2016 election, including James Comey, Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama, the Russians, sexism, women, the media, uninformed voters, voter suppression,...

    Former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) reportedly said on Monday that he will not go on an “apology tour” for being a successful white man if he decides to run for president. According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, McAuliffe, who said he would make his 2020 decision by March 31, told conservative radio host John Fredericks that he is “very close” to making a 2020 decision, saying he is still “going through the process” and will “have a decision shortly.”

    CHICAGO – Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Thursday emphatically urged President Trump to butt out of the ongoing drama over embattled "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett as he blamed him for creating a "toxic environment" where someone would allegedly fabricate such an attack. “My recommendation is the president go to Opening Day baseball, sit on the sidelines and stay out of this," Emanuel told a group of reporters. The mayor called Chicago a "Trump-free zone" and blamed the president for creating a "toxic" and "hate-filled" environment that allowed Smollett to think he could get away with faking a hate crime. “Let me...

    Friday on CNN’s “New Day,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) said President Donald Trump’s rhetoric was “a factor” in the mass shooting at two New Zealand mosques that left 49 dead. Partial transcript as follows: BLUMENTHAL: A heartbreaking day, and of course our prayers go out to the people of New Zealand, particularly the loved ones and survivors and victims. But words do have consequences and we know that at the very pinnacle of power in our own country people are talking about good people on both sides. CAMEROTA: You mean the president talking about it.

    Hillary Rodham Clinton still cannot let 2016 go—and that goes for her supporters as well. The entire Democratic establishment is still seething over her epic loss to President Donald J. Trump. They all read FiveThirtyEight and the Huffington Post’s polls. It had her chances of winning at 90+ percent. Then, they all got punched in the mouth. Trump won. We won, you lost, and the country soldiers on. But as with all losers, especially high-profile ones like Clinton, there’s the book deal, the tour, and the endless interviews of who’s to blame. For Hillary, it was everyone, but her that...

    Did nothing of value as Speaker. Didn't discourage at least half of those looking to retire into sticking around another two years where we could have maintained control. He lined up his K Street job and started throwing bombs towards Trump (which he also did a few days before the 2016 election). Trump worked and saved the Senate and made the difference in some key governor races. Tonight was not a Trump defeat. Part of it was history -- midterm election usually results in out of power party winning. But this was winnable. Ryan blew the House. /rant

    The true threat to this country’s stability is not one ethnicity or people group, CNN host Don Lemon lectured at the end of Chris Cuomo’s show Monday night, before contradicting himself by stating that white conservative men are actually the biggest terror threat America faces. Lemon made that statement as Cuomo was signing off his primetime show October 29, as the pair complained about Trump’s rhetoric on illegal immigration. The liberal journalists, taking a note from their peers, tied it to the recent horrific murders at a Pittsburgh synagogue and a Kroger grocery store (because of course somehow everything is...
