  • Bill Maher says Ashli Babbitt knew California cared more about 'toxic Whiteness' than 'toxic brokeness'

    "Real Time" host Bill Maher on Friday night addressed the death of Ashli Babbitt, the Air Force veteran from California who was fatally shot inside the Capitol on Jan. 6. Maher stressed that Babbitt "lost her life trying to prevent Biden from becoming president" -- despite the fact she was previously an Obama voter. He sympathized with Babbitt as a struggling business owner who was "pissed off at the greed and corruption," but insisted a second term for President Trump term would not have solved her problems since it was her home state of California that was "doing most of...

    Former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Wednesday on ABC’s “The View” that Republicans would “regret” confirming Amy Coney Barrett as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Co-host Sunny Hostin said, “Rahm, Amy Coney Barrett is now Justice Barrett having been officially sworn in as the newest Supreme Court justice after what many Democrats are calling an illegitimate process. Minority Leader Schumer is saying Republicans will regret her confirmation. Do you think they will?”

    Co-host and network legal analyst Sunny Hostin said on Tuesday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View” now that the Republican-controlled Senate voted to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett, the Supreme Court no longer reflected the values of America. Hostin said, “I think her appointment is really going to change the way the Supreme Court is going to not only handle cases but the way the Supreme Court is going to look going forward. We all know the Republican Party has been packing the Supreme Court for decades. They’ve been packing the judiciary for decades. Trump has put now three justices on...
  • Is it too late to hope for a Black woman on the Supreme Court?

    Washington Post ^ | 10/26/2020 | Petula Dvorak
    These young Black girls should have been celebrating the first Black woman on the Supreme Court. Instead, as the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett was well on its way, these girls — all 100 of them — got dressed up in judicial robes to launch a protest. “Honor Her Wish,” their little masks read. “Her wish,” of course, was Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dying request that her seat wouldn’t be filled until after the election. Joe Biden has pledged to put a Black woman on the Supreme Court if he wins in November. But President Trump and Senate Majority Leader...

    Liberal pundit Keith Olbermann announced on Tuesday that he would exit ESPN before his contract ended so that he can bash President Trump on a daily YouTube program. Olbermann posted a video on social media Tuesday and thanked ESPN for releasing him “a little bit early” from his contract so he can resume political commentary. The former MSNBC host had been instructed to stick to sports since he re-joined ESPN in 2018, but couldn’t resist bashing the president as Election Day approaches. “I’ll be doing a new, live daily commentary series with YouTube, focused on the presidential election called, ‘The...

    Besides the masses know by now that it is ex-president Barack Obama who is the leader of the Resistance and not the admittedly burned-out GQ talking head of ‘The Resistance’. Only Keith Olbermann could toss in the towel on the world of political commentary and throw an online Retirement Party, attended only by the retiree himself. Only an arrogant Keith Olbermann would take credit as he headed out the door for bringing impeachment down upon the head of President Donald Trump. Only Blowhard Olbermann could call Trump the “Harvey Weinstein” of politics, licking his lips at the prospect of Trump...

    Does it seem you hear a little bit less about political controversies in the sports world than you did a year or two ago? Do you find yourself grumbling at your television, “I just want to enjoy watching the game” less frequently? Today’s Los Angeles Times profiles ESPN President Jimmy Pitaro, who took over running the network in March 2018. Deep in the article: Pitaro has also satisfied ESPN’s more traditional fans by steering commentators away from political discussions on-air and on social media, which heightened during President Trump’s criticism of NFL player protests against social injustice during the playing...

    The Labor Department paid out hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal stimulus funds to a public relations firm to run more than 100 commercials touting the Obama administration’s “green training” job efforts on two popular MSNBC cable shows, records show. The commercials ran on MSNBC on shows hosted by Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann in 2009, but the contract didn’t report any jobs created, according to records recently reviewed by The Washington Times.

    Conservatives on Twitter lashed out following the swift cancellation of Roseanne Barr's hit ABC program after here racist tweet, citing a double-standard in entertainment for those who are conservative or support President Trump. The right-leaning critics took particular aim at ESPN’s decision to hire Keith Olbermann and MSNBC’s continued employment of Joy Reid. Both have made provocative comments in the past. ABC canceled Barr’s show after she wrote a tweet that referred to former Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett as a product of the “The Planet of the Apes” and “the Muslim Brotherhood.” Olbermann was recently hired by ESPN for...

    @KeithOlbermann “This pea-brained scumbag identifies himself as Hunter Waltman and we should do our best to make sure the rest of his life is a living hell.” “And the nitwit clown who wrote this fawning piece should be fired.” "We have spoken to him about not making personal attacks," an ESPN representative said in a statement. "Someone with his following needs to understand the possible impact of his words," Hall noted. ”Telling over 1 million people to make someone’s life a living hell could have seriously dangerous consequences.

    If Democrats win in November, they already vow to destroy one branch of government and transform the U.S. Senate into another House of Representatives, where a simple majority rules and "fickleness and passion" carry the day, to quote James Madison. Predicting a Bolshevik-style victory for the Democrats, Keith Olbermann quit his job at ESPN and made a quiet return this month to political commentary on his YouTube channel. In a classic Olbermann deranged rant, the former MSNBC host breathed fire and brimstone at President Trump and all of his supporters, who Olbermann wants "prosecuted, convicted, and removed" from society. "Trump...

    American Thinker ^ | 10 Oct, 2020 | Andrea Widburg
    Former sports commentator, Keith Olbermann, reinvented himself as a political commentator whose specialty was hate-filled rants against Republicans. In 2017, his bile temporarily overwhelmed him, and he withdrew from ranting. He’s back, now, and fouler than ever. His debut video saw him announce in almost-Maoist terms that, once the glorious Biden/Harris era dawns, the running dogs of the Trump presidency (my words, not his) must be “removed from our society”. If you find it as painful to listen to Olbermann as I do, Real Clear Politics has helpfully provided a transcript: Trump can be, and must be, expunged. The hate...

    Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris has said that based on the video of Jacob Blake's shooting, the white police officer who shot him should be charged. In a wide-ranging interview with CNN's Dana Bash, Harris said she was "very clear" that the charges should be "considered in a very serious way and that there should be accountability and consequence." "Based on what I saw, he should be charged," the California senator told Bash, but added that she was "not in full possession of the facts and the evidence."

    Trevor Noah's tenure as host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central is nearing five years, so they're reaching out for the expected positive publicity from the liberal media. Michael Ordona at the Los Angeles Times proclaimed that it's great the comedy isn't so central any more on Comedy Central. The Daily Show With Trevor Noah has gone from being jokes about the news to, more and more, the news with some jokes. If comedy is tragedy plus time, perhaps this is a natural evolution when we’re too close to the second part of that equation to produce a lot...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) argued on Thursday, regarding Jacob Blake’s shooting by Wisconsin police, that black lives have never “been treated as fully human” in America. Harris, the Democrat vice-presidential nominee, made the remark in a speech that was billed as a pre-rebuttal to President Donald Trump’s appearance at the Republican National Convention. The California lawmaker, in particular, argued recent events, including Blake’s shooting and the death of George Floyd in police custody, had exposed the difficult realities facing many of the country’s citizens. “The reality is that the life of a black person in America has never been treated...

    Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton gave speeches at the funeral for John Lewis, Democratic congressman who died earlier this month. Obama delivered the eulogy, and used it to level criticism at the Trump administration’s attacks on peaceful protesters and voting rights amid the coronavirus pandemic. “We can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators,” Obama said. “There are those in power who are doing their darndest to discourage people from voting, by closing polling locations and targeting minorities with restrictive ID laws, attacking our voting rights with...

    Former President Barack Obama used his eulogy at the funeral of Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) to call for an end to the Senate filibuster to pass Democrats’ new legislation on voting reform. Obama said that Republicans had imitated Jim Crow-era restrictions on voting rights, which Lewis marched against, by passing state voter ID laws and other measures that conservatives argue prevent voter fraud. “And if all this takes is ending the filibuster, another Jim Crow relic, in order to secure the God-given rights of every American, then that’s what we should do.” Without mentioning Donald Trump by name, Obama likened...

O’Rourke said, “You know, the United States has been hit hard by COVID. Texas, arguably, harder than almost any other state right now, perhaps with the exception of Florida and Arizona, and within Texas, the Rio Grande Valley, and particularly Hidalgo County, is just getting the stuffing knocked out of it. They’re running out of beds and space in their hospitals and clinics. They’re running out of nurses and doctors to take care of the patients....
