    As an American, I am ashamed that 77 million of my countrymen voted for a misogynistic, racist, power-hungry, senile grifter and pervert. The disaster is on your hands.
  • Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein says Trump created 'the first grifter presidency' in US history and calls his tax returns 'the smoking gun' of his 'pervasively criminal' administration

    Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein accused Donald Trump of creating 'the first grifter presidency' in US history after the New York Times lifted the lid on the president's years of alleged tax avoidance and extensive debt. Bernstein called the bombshell Times report 'the smoking gun of a pervasively criminal presidency' in an interview with CNN on Monday morning. 'Donald Trump and his family are grifters,' he said. 'He has created the first grifter presidency in the history of the United States in which his purpose in running for the presidency and exercising the powers of the presidency - the fundamental reason...
  • Corruption's in the Air; Sharpton Returns

    (CU) - The Reverend Al Sharpton is the man FBI agents referred to as “CI-7”, short for confidential informant #7, in secret court filings. In those documents, investigators confidently vouched for him as being a reliable, productive, and accurate source of private information regarding investigations into illegal activities. Today Sharpton continues to straddle the corporate and street cultures while maintaining the unofficial position of America’s senior spokesman for civil rights issues. Our collective memories don’t appear to be as strong as needed or the left side of the political aisle simply assumes short memories have washed clean Sharpton’s reputation.
  • Ridership’s down, revenues are down, but salaries are up for BART workers

    BART’s ridership is only 12% of what it was before the coronavirus pandemic and it’s facing a projected loss of $975 million over the next three years — nonetheless, the transit agency’s workers got a 2.75% raise July 1, bringing the top salary for station agents and train operators to $93,085.20 a year, plus benefits.“It was clear from the beginning of the budget process that staff and a board majority was committed to maintaining status quo,” BART board Director Debora Allen said. “That meant no layoffs, furloughs or pay cuts.”
  • Ilhan Omar’s grifty and sordid reelection campaign

    Washington Examiner ^ | 7/16/20 | Timothy P. Carney
    Ilhan Omar has spent $2.97 million on her reelection this year. If you set aside refunds and transfers, her operating expenditures are $2.59 million. Only five members of Congress have spent more on operating expenditures so far this cycle. Where is all that money going? Much of it is going to her husband. In March, the congresswoman (who perpetually scolded anyone who inquired about her multiple marriages) married her top campaign consultant, Tim Mynett. Mynett’s ex-wife alleged in divorce filings that her husband and Omar were carrying on an affair while both were married. Why does the congresswoman’s extramarital affair...

    When Never Trumper and Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson went on Stephen Colbert's parody news show on Monday night, Tooning Out the News, it would be a reasonable assumption that he probably looked forward to the interview. After all since the interviewers would be cartoon characters, it would probably be a lot of fun. Plus, since Stephen Colbert suffers from every bit as much of Trump Derangement Syndrome as Wilson he could expect it to be a friendly interview as well. What could go wrong? Well, everything. As you can see, by the end of interview, poor Wilson was stunned...

    With courtiers already alarmed at how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex plan to cash in on their royal connections, this will have them reaching for the smelling salts. I hear that Meghan plans to become more 'politically engaged' now that she and Prince Harry have quit official duties. 'The Duchess is said to be frustrated that she was forced to stay out of politics after getting engaged to Harry,' a royal source tells me. 'She has strong political opinions and will now take advantage of the greater freedom she has to express them publicly.' The source claims that Meghan...

    “Behind the scenes we are talking about a family falling apart, and Andrew is doing his best to shore things up.” The scandal-scarred Duke of York has reportedly been his mom’s “tower of strength” over the last two weeks, as she has dealt with grandson Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle’s decision to split from the royal family. Known as the queen’s “favorite son,” Andrew, 59, was booted from royal duties in November after trying to justify his friendship with dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in a train-wreck BBC interview. He had been keeping a low profile, especially after his...

    The number one story in the news in Great Britain (and a major story around the world) is the apparent abandonment of the Royal Family by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, better known as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The story obviously has a strong personal element, but it also strikes me as emblematic of our time. The British monarchy is not just ancient, but profoundly old-fashioned. It is founded on a concept of duty, exemplified by Queen Elizabeth II, that is utterly at odds with the 21st century. Being a Royal is a great job, most would say,...

    The Clinton Foundation will continue to accept donations from foreign countries—but not from Saudi Arabia, donations from which have set off an embarrassing protest movement against newly-declared Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton. Clinton resigned from the Foundation’s Board of Directors last week as protests mounted in the media and on the campaign trail over the family foundation’s acceptance of donations from Saudi Arabia, which denies women many of the rights Clinton and the foundation claim to stand for. …

    Meghan Markle has trademarked her Sussex royal brand on more than 100 items, from teaching materials and emotional support groups to clothing and even newspapers, it can be revealed today. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are currently enjoying a six-week Christmas break in Canada, appear intent on turning their brand into a global empire as they stamp their name on the list of good and services. The move has seen the royal submit trademark applications on dozens of products including T-shirts, social services and more surprisingly newspapers for their newly created foundation Sussex Royal.
  • Meghan Markle & Prince Andrew Are 'Most Unpopular' Royals In New Poll (circa Nov 19-but they're popular with youths)

    Meghan Markle is one of the least popular members of the royal family, according to the Public First poll for Metro. The only other royal polling as more unpopular than Meghan is Prince Andrew. Though this poll seems to show that the British people feel unfavorably about the Duchess of Sussex, she's actually quite popular with young people in the United Kingdom. According to the poll, the public's opinion on Meghan was actually quite divided. The Duchess was found to be popular among the young, as well as those who identified as leaning politically left, according to Express. Meghan's approval...

    Chelsea Clinton has reaped $9 million in compensation since 2011 for serving on the board of an internet investment company, according to Barron’s, the financial publication. Barron’s reported Sunday that Clinton has profited handsomely as a board member for IAC/InterActiveCorp, a media and internet investment company that has an ownership stake in 150 well-known brands, such as Vimeo, Tinder, Angie’s List and Home Advisor. Clinton, the only child of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has served on IAC’s board since 2011 and receives an annual $50,000 retainer and $250,000 worth of restricted IAC stock...

    [T]here will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.” 2 Peter 2:1–3I’m surprised when I hear people say that we shouldn’t judge preachers. “That’s not loving” or “The Bible says not to judge” are often responses.My gut reaction is, “Have you...

    Prince Andrew's suggestion that sex is a 'positive act' for a man, so therefore difficult to forget, is said to have left Meghan Markle 'troubled'. A source, described as 'close to The Duchess of Sussex' spoke to The Daily Telegraph criticising his BBC Newsnight interview and describing Meghan's reaction to seeing it. After a week of catastrophic headlines for Prince Andrew, in which his charities have abandoned him, Meghan's camp hit out at the Duke. 'The interview left everyone watching it wanting to curl under a table. It just got worse and worse and worse,' a source close to the...

    Pleasantries — specifically “good morning” — are banned, and commoners are forbidden from placing letters in the royal mailbox. “It’s extraordinary. We’ve never heard anything like it. Everyone who lives on the estate works for the royals and knows how to behave respectfully,” one resident scoffed. “We aren’t told how to behave around the Queen like this. She’s very happy for people to greet her.”

    Royal experts fear Prince Harry and his wife's reported plans to skip the Queen's Christmas gathering at Sandringham this year risk perpetuating their perceived distance from the Royal Family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reportedly told the Queen they will not spend son Archie's first Christmas with the monarch at her country estate in Norfolk. Prince Harry and his wife are undecided what to do for Christmas, but have chosen to spend it away from other Royals at the traditional get-together, The Sun reported this morning. Royal watchers fear the move could worsen tensions between the couple and...

    ....When you agreed, Harry, I winced. Because if there is one thing I know from my own greatest loss — of a son — it's that you can't allow festering to happen. So in all humility and friendship, let me pass on a useful metaphor to you both. A friend whose wife was murdered told me that he was helped in his grief by remembering that in the trenches of World War I, most men died not of their wounds, but of the dirt that got into them and caused infection. Whenever emotions such as resentment, unfairness or self-pity crept...

    “I have said for a long time to H, that’s what I call him, ‘It’s not enough to just survive something,’” said Markle. “’That’s not the point of life. You have to thrive. You have got to feel happy.’ I really tried to adopt this British sensibility of a ‘stiff upper lip.’ I really tried, but I think that what that does internally is probably really damaging.” “If things are fair, that completely tracks for me if things are fair,” said Markle. “If I do something wrong I’d be the first one to go, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry....
