    Is Democrat on Democrat shade is going mainstream? Probably not, but the Bill Maher/Rashida Tlaib feud is just the latest high-profile example of division within the ranks of the left, with potential ramifications involving the long-term loyalties of Jewish voters. Have Jewish liberals, who count among their rank’s notable Americans including Sarah Silverman, Bette Midler, Seth Rogan, Jon Stewart and so many other outwardly anti-Trump individuals, allowed the blind hatred they feel over the president, who has been a great ally to Israel and American Jews, to take precedence over their religious values? The issue inflaming tensions between Maher and...
  • Rand Paul says Jon Stewart is 'neither funny nor informed,' slamming 'lies' about 9/11 bill

    Jon Stewart made himself part of the political "B.S." when he attacked two Republican lawmakers over their delay of the 9/11 victim compensation reauthorization bill, according to Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. The name-calling of Paul and Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, is not a good look for the comedian and activist, the Bluegrass State lawmaker claimed Thursday on "Your World." "I know Jon Stewart, and Jon Stewart is sometimes funny and sometimes informed," he said. "In this case, he's neither funny nor informed. I've spent my entire Senate career putting forward 'pay-fors' for any time spending is expanded. I put forward...

    Former NYPD Detective Luis Alvarez gave a passionate testimony before Congress earlier this month urging lawmakers to restore the 9/11 Compensation Victims Fund, which is set to expire next year. Sadly, he passed away at the age of 53 on Saturday. Alvarez was diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2016. The illness was reportedly related to the three months he spent searching for survivors and remains at Ground Zero shortly after the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on the World Trade Center. “Please remember his words, ‘Please take care of yourselves and each other,’" Alvarez's family said in a statement. "We...

    New York City's former top cop said Sunday that the Obama administration cut funding to fight terrorism in the city to retaliate against Sen. Chuck Schumer for opposing a nuclear deal with Iran. "There's a certain amount vindictiveness on the part of Washington aimed at Sen. Chuck Schumer," Ray Kelly, New York City's police commissioner under former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, said in an interview with John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York. "Apparently they remember very well that Sen. Schumer did not support their Iran deal," Kelly said, arguing the proposed cut "was aimed at getting a reaction from...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he doesn’t know why Jon Stewart is so “bent out of shape” over securing health care for 9/11 responders, saying the Senate will “take care” of the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund. The former host of “The Daily Show,” who pleaded with House lawmakers last week to reauthorize the fund, questioned whether McConnell would ensure its passage in the GOP-controlled upper chamber. Stewart: McConnell playing politics with 9/11 responders “He has always held out until the last minute, and only then after intense lobbying and public shaming has he even deigned to move on...

    Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, had a sharp response to a New York Times writer who accused him of not supporting the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund. Comedian Jon Stewart rocked Capitol Hill on Tuesday and slammed lawmakers who were absent from a House subcommittee hearing on the renewal for funding for the health expenses of first responders, many who have been battling cancer nearly two decades after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. NYT contributing op-ed writer Wajahat Ali blasted Republicans on Twitter Tuesday and attempted to question their patriotism for not backing the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund. He also claimed Crenshaw hasn't...

    The Federalist ^ | June 13, 2019 | Christopher Jacobs
    Noting that lawmakers tweeted about never forgetting the heroes of 9/11, Jon Stewart accused them of ‘callous indifference and rank hypocrisy’ for not listening to him rant. Congress ended up in some hot water recently—and for once, lawmakers did little to cause the trouble. At a House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution hearing on legislation to reauthorize the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, television personality and hearing witness Jon Stewart went on a rant. Noting many empty spaces on the committee dais, Stewart said, “You should be ashamed of yourselves for those that aren’t here, but you won’t be, because accountability...

    Jon Stewart is best known as a comedian and former host of "The Daily Show." Virtually all talk show hosts draw from the well of politics. But Stewart's tenure took that to a new level, and he made no bones about his distinctly progressive leanings. Stewart is talented and intelligent, and his riffs on politics and political figures are funny (whether you share his political views or not). He is already a household name. But Stewart gave the monologue of his life yesterday in front of a congressional subcommittee charged with finding additional financial support for the Sept. 11 Victim...

    The House Judiciary Committee unanimously passed a bill which would permanently reauthorize the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Wednesday, the day after comedian Jon Stewart gave impassioned testimony in support of the bill in video that quickly went viral. The bill will now go to the floor for a full vote in the House of Representatives, where it is likely to pass. It's unclear whether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will take up the bill in the Senate, although Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York said Wednesday that he was "imploring, pleading, even begging" McConnell to bring the bill...

    Mediaite ^ | October 31, 2018 | Caleb Ecarma
    Comedian and Daily Show legend Jon Stewart pointed out a chink in a journalists’ armor against President Donald Trump’s anti-media rhetoric: He has exploited the media’s “own narcissism,” forcing them to “change the conversation” to focus on what he wants to talk about. Stewart began his point by noting that corporate media outlets have focused so much on the Trump phenomenon because “you gotta’ make money to. You got bills to pay, man, you got electric bills, you got food.” CNN International host Christiane Amanpour, who was interviewing Stewart along with fellow star comedian Dave Chappelle, pushed back on that...

    Full Frontal host Samantha Bee has felt the full force of a conservative backlash after using a vulgar epithet to describe Ivanka Trump, but the comedian still has her defenders and got some welcome support from former boss Jon Stewart, a veteran of Republican animus, at Sunday's Clusterfest comedy festival in San Francisco. According to a report in The Daily Beast, Stewart was asked about the Bee controversy during a Q&A session. The former Daily Show host took exception to White House tactics to get the TBS show canceled arguing that it was all part of a "game" that the...

    In the "Lumberjanes" comic books the action has literally moved beyond the proverbial gay closet and into the woods. The acclaimed series centers around a group of girls of various sexual orientations and gender identities at a Girl Scout-like camp who battle supernatural spirits. Launched in 2014 by Boom! Box, an imprint of Boom! Studios, the ongoing series has drawn high praise from critics and earned several awards. It has also been a platform for its creators to introduce young readers to different queer topics, from using the proper pronouns for someone who is genderqueer to portraying a family headed...

    When Jon Stewart left The Daily Show last year he left a major void in the late night television landscape. Not only was Stewart considered one of the most sharp political satirists on television, but he also hates Donald Trump. The two have a long-standing rivalry.... “Look I don’t even know if Donald Trump is eligible to be President — that’s not a birther thing,” Stewart said. “I’m not a constitutional scholar so I can’t necessarily say, but are you eligible to run if you are a man-baby or a baby man?”

    Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is not a turtle. Ian Ziering of “90210” was in the movie “Sharknado.” And Sapphire from the movie “Almost Famous” is a “Band Aid.” Those are among the anonymous edits to Wikipedia that have originated from IP addresses in Congress during the August recess, when lawmakers take their annual hiatus from Washington and life around the Capitol quiets down. Changes to Wikipedia from congressional IP addresses became a mini-controversy around this time last year, when more than 100 edits were made. […] The McConnell edit that came from Senate this month actually removed a prank...

    Just two weeks after the broadcast networks mourned “cultural icon” Jon Stewart leaving The Daily Show, Friday’s NBC Today and CBS This Morning touted an online petition on the liberal Change.org website urging the Commission on Presidential Debates to select the left-wing comedian as a 2016 debate moderator. On Today, co-host Matt Lauer wondered: “Could the presidential race be in Jon Stewart's future?” Fill-in weatherperson Dylan Dryer followed: “Well, that’s the hope of a lot of people....A Change.org petition requesting Stewart moderate one of the 2016 presidential debates has been signed almost 140,000 times and that number is growing by...

    Some people want to vote for Hillary; others want to vote Jeb. Still, there are others who prefer Carly, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson or The Donald. But when it comes to the 2016 Presidential Election, this much we can all agree on: We want more Jon Stewart. Now, there’s a new petition making the rounds that might just make that American dream come true. And if this Change.org movement has its way, the recently-retired “Daily Show” host will moderate an upcoming Presidential debate. “Jon Stewart is more than qualified to tackle the moderating job,” says the petition. “Mr. Stewart has...
