  • 'AOC says gender is fluid - but so are Latino voters': Bill Maher says Democrats are trying to lose the abortion debate by using woke phrases like 'birthing people' and are driving voters to Republicans

    Bill Maher blasted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her progressive ilk for losing the debate on abortion thanks to the use of woke slang including 'pregnant people.' Speaking on his show Real Time with Bill Maher Friday - hours after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade - Maher told viewers that abortion is a 'difficult issue for the Democrats to lose on, but they're trying. He also warned that the party could no longer blithely count on traditional support from minority groups, warning that Latin-Americans' voting-preference was just as 'fluid' as AOC claims gender is. 'For decades, liberals have said,...

    The ballroom at the Mandarin Oriental brimmed with women in power suits, patiently awaiting the keynote panel of the nonprofit All In Together’s “Black Women Lead” event last week. April Ryan, a veteran White House correspondent for The Grio, sat down to interview Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about her new position. “It is awesome to be outside of that press briefing room,” Ryan laughed. “Yeah,” Jean-Pierre said with a sigh, “it is.” Jean-Pierre took her seat just 20 days earlier, a new player at the table who found herself holding a weak hand. Voters are alarmed about inflation, baby formula...

On the occasion of Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee celebrations, today's Morning Joe brought in Suzannah Lipscomb, billed as an NBC News "royal contributor." Lipscomb enthused over Prince Charles for his trendy views on climate: "His interests in things like sustainable agriculture, and climate change, and deforestation, you know, they’re not seen as eccentricities anymore. They're seen as current concerns. He is a kind of prophet in that way." Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • AG Who Tried to Sic FBI on Parents Speaking Out at School Board Meetings Warns of ‘Threat to Democracy’

    f it hadn’t been obvious before, it’s long since become a basic reality that those shouting loudest about “threats to democracy” are the threat. Attorney General Merrick Garland warned about threats to democracy in the U.S. and abroad in a commencement speech at Harvard University on Sunday. “Threats to democracy in the U.S. and abroad” is a convenient way to connect external and internal opposition, and thus use counterintelligence and other tools meant to be deployed against foreign adversaries against Republicans. We know this is true because this is what Obama/Biden has done. And we’re not just talking Trump Russiagate....

    As the Democratic Party’s fate grows increasingly uncertain this midterm election season, Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) says he remains resilient in a notoriously “purplish” state by focusing on the empowerment of individual voters. “Colorado is a very independently minded, freedom-oriented state, and they don’t want Republicans or Democrats telling them what to do,” Polis told The Hill. “They value accurate information, they value facts, and people should be empowered to make their own decisions, whether that’s marijuana, whether it’s wearing a mask — we’re a state that values freedom.”

    Zubu Brothers ^ | 5-30--2022 | Steve Watson via Summit News,
    In a speech on the Senate floor Friday, Rand Paul blasted efforts by Democrats to paint up all law enforcement officers and those in the military as dangerous radical racists. Paul was addressing The Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2022, blocked by Republicans in the Senate, that demands the FBI and Department of Homeland Security change the way they investigate and monitor domestic terrorism suspects. The official summary of the bill notes that an “interagency task force” would be established in order to probe into “white supremacist and neo-Nazi infiltration of the uniformed services and federal law enforcement agencies.” “This...

    Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked a bill to create domestic terrorism offices within federal law enforcement agencies in response to a mass shooting in Buffalo, N.Y., that left 10 people dead. Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) framed the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act as an opportunity to vote on Republican and Democratic amendments to curb gun violence, but his plea for GOP support to begin the debate fell flat with Republican colleagues. “The bill is so important because the mass shooting in Buffalo was an act of domestic terrorism. We need to call it what it is, domestic terrorism. It...

    On Wednesday Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) hit the brakes on the idea of a quick gun control vote, making clear a vote on more gun restrictions will have to wait. Breitbart News pointed to a report the New York Times published Tuesday which said Schumer was moving quickly to “force” a vote on gun control in the Senate. The Times noted, “Within hours of the shooting in Uvalde, Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat of New York and the majority leader, moved to clear the way to force votes in coming days on legislation that would strengthen background checks for...

    CNN+ was pulled from air last month only three weeks after it launched, despite investing $300 million. Fox News defector Chris Wallace, who reportedly makes $9 million annually, joined the doomed streaming news service to pursue a lucrative job and get away from Tucker Carlson. It was unknown what his fate at Warner Bros Discovery would be. While other talent featured on CNN+ remains a mystery, including food industry star Roman, former NPR host Audie Cornish, former NBC hosts Kasie Hunt and Jemele Hill, and sports commentators Rex Chapman and Jemele Hill. The first day of official work for new...

    In a bid to help heal a divided country, Anthony Fauci encouraged the University of Michigan’s Comeback Commencement crowd to challenge untruths and push back on the “egregious distortion of reality” that permeates social media and “so-called news organizations.” Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden, spoke at the May 7 event, two years in the making due to the COVID-19 pandemic for which Fauci helped guide the nation’s response. In his Michigan Stadium address, he discussed the divisiveness of the nation and his view of its...
  • Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is a far more dangerous politician than Donald Trump

    MSNBC "News" ^ | April 28, 2022 | Michael Cohen
    Like Trump, DeSantis' time in office would be marked by attempts to pit Americans against one another. But unlike Trump, DeSantis has the proven ability to follow through. Ron DeSantis is the governor of Florida, a front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, and quite possibly the most dangerous figure in American politics. While it’s hard to imagine any politician wresting that title away from Donald Trump, DeSantis brings something to the table that Trump lacks — his ability to translate political vindictiveness, cruelty and demagoguery into policy results.

    Representative Jamie Raskin (D-ML) claimed Monday on MSNBC’s “All In” that former President Donald Trump attempted “multiple different efforts to overthrow Biden’s majority in the Electoral College” after the 2020 presidential election. Raskin said, “Trump had tried multiple different efforts to overthrow Biden’s majority in the Electoral College. They are trying to intimidate and browbeat election officials, like the Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in Georgia. That was caught on tape. Everybody heard Trump saying, just find me 11,781 votes. That’s all I want. That didn’t work. There was the plan to try to get the military to seize election...

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher stated that younger people “have been indoctrinated” to be needlessly anxious about the coronavirus, which has contributed to depression among that demographic. Maher said, “I saw the videos of people erupting in cheers that we don’t have to wear a mask on the plane anymore. Now, there’s also, you hear from the people will die crowd. And they’re right, people will die. People will always die. I’m against people dying, but they’re always going to die. And you actually can’t stop it and masks, really, we’re finding out, are a...

    Democratic strategist James Carville said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that “weirdos” are “becoming a majority” in the Republican Party. When asked about Mitch McConnell, Carville said, “Of course, this party, about a third of them are puling for Russia. Yes, he wants people that will be compliant to his worldview, which is tax cuts for the richest people in the world and tax poor people, which isn’t a very smart idea. But the problem is they are a weird political party. They need to be branded as such. These 26 QAnon people, alright, that’s not necessarily the extreme. These...

    A top Democrat in the House of Representatives said in a Monday interview that saving 'democracy' was critical to fighting climate change, claiming 'alt-right' groups are distracting from the necessary work of saving the planet. 'We’ve got to save the democracy in order to save the climate and save our species,' he said during a joint sit-down with Reuters, NPR and The Guardian. 'We’re never going to be able to successfully deal with climate change if we’re spending all our time fighting the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers and Ku Klux Klan, and the Aryan nations and all of...

    March 31 (UPI) -- Greta Thunberg will publish a book this fall, the 19-year-old Swedish environmental activist confirmed on Thursday. The Climate Book will be published in October by Penguin Press, and will have several contributing authors. "I've invited over 100 leading voices from around the world -scientists, experts, activists and authors to create a book that covers the climate- and ecological crisis from a holistic perspective," Thunberg said on Twitter. Leading scientists and Canadian novelist Margaret Atwood are among those contributing the book, that Thunberg hopes will become "an essential tool" in the fight against climate change. The book's...

    Former NFL great and current FS1 analyst Shannon Sharpe found himself playing defense this weekend after saying that he would rather pay “20 bucks a gallon than have Trump in office.”The trouble started for Sharpe after he posted a tweet jokingly asking if anyone knew any gas station owners who were hiring. The tweet also showed a $118 purchase at the pump.“Anyone knows someone hiring that owns a gas station? You get a discount IF* you [work] at an establishment,” Sharpe wrote on Saturday. “Do ppl still siphon off gas? It was a thing when I was a growing up.”

    The Neo-Ciceronian Times ^ | April 4, 2022 | Theophilus Chilton
    One of the questions we see commonly debated in Dissident Right circles is just how long can the Global American Empire (GAE) really last as a hegemonic force in international politics. Some, like Curtin Yarvin/Mencius Moldbug, speculate that the Regime could last for another century or more. Others believe its demise will be within ten years or less. Both sides are likely overstating their cases, but I do tend to believe that the truth of the matter is much closer to the latter than the former. However one lands on this, it must surely be accepted that the answer will...

    ROME — Pope Francis renewed his appeal for an end to war Sunday, condemning the “bestiality” of the Russian war on Ukraine. “More than a month has passed since the beginning of the invasion of Ukraine, since the beginning of this cruel and senseless war which, like any war, represents a defeat for all, for all of us,” the pontiff told the 30,000 pilgrims gathered in the Vatican for his weekly Angelus address. “There is a need to repudiate war, a place of death where fathers and mothers bury their children, where men kill their brothers without even having seen...
