    During a ceremony honoring the 2019 "Teachers of the Year," one in particular stood out. The honoree from Minnesota, Kelly Holstine, chose to kneel during the national anthem at the NCAA football championship game on Monday, where the ceremony took place, "to stand up for marginalized and oppressed people," according to a tweet she wrote, which included a photograph of her kneeling. "Like many before, I respectfully kneeled during Nat’l Anthem because, 'No one is free until we are all free,'" she wrote, referencing former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and citing a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King,...
  • Jerry Nadler Is A Jackwagon For Calling Hope Hicks 'Ms. Lewandowski' During Her Testimony

    Well, after wasting taxpayer money and Hope Hicks' time on Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee has released the full transcript of Trump's former communications director's testimony. It largely revealed absolutely nothing new, but it also confirmed what we all already knew -- New York Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler is an absolute jerk. In Michael Wolff's now discredited book, 'Fire and Fury,' the author claims that Hicks, one of President Trump's closest allies and a key player in the 2016 campaign, had an on-and-off relationship with Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski who happens to be married. The supposed affair was never...

    Retiring Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said in a new interview that the Republican Party has been inured to danger of President Trump's continued criticism of special counsel Robert Mueller. "It’s like the party is a frog slowly boiling in water, being conditioned to not be worried, to not think too hard about what’s happening around them,” Flake told The Washington Post. “They feel at a loss about what to do because it’s the president’s party, without any doubt," he said. "So, there’s a lot of whistling by the graveyard these days.”

    Mitt Romney said Sunday he will continue to speak out against President Trump when he sees fit, but acknowledged that he agrees with a number of the president's policies. Romney, who is campaigning for U.S. Senate in Utah, penned an op-ed for The Salt Lake Tribune. He sought to clarify his stance on Trump, whom Romney has alternately criticized and praised dating back to his own 2012 presidential campaign. "If you elect me your senator, I will fight with vigor for the interests of our state and nation. I will endorse the president’s policies that support those interests. Hopefully, there...

    During a radio interview that had him declaring the United States as racist and using the N-word to emphasize his point, Barack Obama made some other remarks that have gone largely unnoticed by the Mainstream Media that offer further and troubling insight into a man seemingly obsessed with the belief he should remain the center of the known political universe… During that same already infamous interview, the president indicated his belief that he would be an even better presidential candidate if he was running again for a third term because, “I know what I’m doing and I’m fearless.” Self-declared as...

    With America in the grips of its first government shutdown in 17 years, President Barack Obama promised U.S. troops and Defense Department staff early Tuesday that he will fight for them and declared that they "deserve better than the dysfunction we're seeing in Congress." “Unfortunately, Congress has not fulfilled its responsibility,” Obama said in a video message broadcast on Armed Forces Television. “It has failed to pass a budget and, as a result, much of our government must now shut down until Congress funds it again.” Obama recorded the address late Monday but was broadcast after the midnight deadline to...
  • Sharpton on Chris Lane Murder: ‘I Protest When I’m Called In’

    ( – Rev. Al Sharpton said Thursday that he did not protest the murder of an Australian man who was gunned down in Oklahoma because no one called him and there was no racial motive. “I protest when I’m called in and when there’s an injustice,” Sharpton said on his MNSBC show “PoliticsNation” in response to a viewer’s question of whether he would issue a statement regarding the murder of 22-year-old Christopher Lane, an Australian baseball player, who was shot in the back while jogging near his girlfriend’s home in Duncan, Okla.

    R. Lee Ermey, the actor best known for his role as the drill sergeant in Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket," claims he was fired by GEICO for criticizing President Obama. After being asked about his GEICO commercial wherein he played a psychiatrist calling his patient a "jackwagon," Ermey said, "GEICO fired me because I had, I wasn’t too kind about speaking with the, about the administration, so the present administration. So they fired me." "So they fired you because of political reasons?" asked the TMZ representative. "Yeah," Ermey answered. "If you’re a conservative in this town, you better watch out."

    Barack Obama skipped the 8th hole rather than be filmed by TV crews at the Vineyard Golf Course on Friday. The Boston Globe reported: But it was later, at the Vineyard Golf Course in Edgartown, where the president’s recalcitrance was most evident. Approaching the eighth tee in a golf cart with friend and frequent golfing buddy Eric Whitaker, the president noticed three TV cameras and a Globe photographer across the street. Rather than stop and be photographed teeing off, the president skipped the hole.

    WASHINGTON – Despite fresh pressure from tea party conservatives, House Speaker John Boehner said Thursday that Republicans "can't impose our will" on the White House and Senate Democrats on legislation to cut tens of billions of dollars in federal spending. At a news conference, Boehner, R-Ohio, denied Democratic suggestions that he has already agreed to jettison nearly half of the $61 billion in cuts passed by the House a month ago

    New Speaker Vows to Share Power—a Tricky PropositionJANUARY 4, 2011 By NAFTALI BENDAVID And PATRICK O'CONNOR When John Boehner takes over one of the most powerful jobs in Washington this week, he says his first order of business is to make himself less powerful. On Wednesday the new speaker of the House of Representatives plans to offer a package of rule changes that, he says, will give minority-party members more of a say and decentralize power. In short, Ohio Republican Mr. Boehner is promising he'll be a different figure from many speakers throughout history—from Republican Joseph Cannon a century ago...

    I have to admit, “jackwagon” is now one of my favorite words. It came into my vocabulary courtesy of R. Lee Ermey via the great series of Geico commercials in which a “former Drill Sergeant make[s] a terrible therapist.” Here then is the former Drill Sergeant himself, in an appearance from earlier in the month at a Toys 4 Tots benefit, giving his opinion about President Obama. Warning: it’s not for crybabies! So let’s just let Obama and his crew chug on over to mamby-pamby land, shall we, while we start to take back our nation. With guys like R....
