    The Teamsters’ political committee has donated $45,000 to the Republican National Committee for the first time in 20 years, according to a report. The donation came the same day former President Donald Trump met with the Teamsters’ leadership for the second time in January, according to the Washington Post, which reported the donation on Wednesday. Although the powerful organized labor group has historically supported Democrats — it sent the Democratic National Committee $135,000 in December as well as $15,000 in March 2023 — the donation to the RNC is the first one since it last donated $15,000 in 2004, according...

    With early voting underway in Michigan’s presidential primary, a group is calling on Democrats to vote uncommitted instead of for President Joe Biden. “This is our protest vote at the ballot box,” Listen to Michigan campaign manager Layla Elabed said. Elabed said the groups want to send a strong message to Biden over his administration’s handling of the Israel-Hamas war. The group is pushing for a cease-fire. “We’re seeing a genocide unfold right in front of our eyes in 2024,” Elabed said. Elabed’s sister, Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, offered her support to voting uncommitted in a video posted on the...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Alex Wagner Tonight” that former President Donald Trump’s hold on the Republican Party was “frightening.” Wagner said, “As someone who ran for the presidency and won the popular vote, can you even wrap your head around arguing in court that you should be able to assassinate your political enemies using SEAL Team Six? How did that argument land with you? Clinton said, “He says so many outrageous things that I think a lot of people have stopped listening, and they shouldn’t. They should pay very careful attention to what Trump...

    The 2024 Republican Iowa Caucus is now history. Donald Trump scored a decisive victory, capturing 98 of 99 counties and winning 51 percent of the vote. Trump’s opponents — Nikki Haley and Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) — find themselves struggling to continue. Haley jetted off to New Hampshire where she hopes to get enough support from independents to either win or finish a close second. DeSantis decamped to Haley’s home state of South Carolina hoping to appeal to that state’s evangelicals. But the reality is that Donald Trump has an unshakeable base of support and is all but certain to...

    Boston Mayor Michelle Wu did not violate state discrimination laws by holding a 'no whites' holiday party because the event was not open to the public, Massachusetts Attorney General has ruled. Democrat Wu hosted the controversial event in December for 'electeds of color'. Her aides were only supposed to invite her six city council members 'of color' but they accidentally sent the event details to seven white members too.

    Boston Mayor Michelle Wu proudly shared a photo of the controversial “electeds of color” holiday party she hosted on Wednesday, showcasing all the smiling government officials of minority backgrounds at the “no whites” gathering. “Last night was my turn to host the annual holiday dinner for Boston’s elected officials of color—a special moment to appreciate that our affinity group now includes leadership across city, state, county, and federal offices,” Wu wrote in a caption alongside the photo on Instagram.

    Denise DosSantos, the director of City Council Relations under Boston Mayor Michelle Wu, sent out a mass email invitation to a plethora of council members for an “Electeds of Color” holiday party. However, the email was mistakenly sent to the whole council by mistake, not just members who are people of color (POC).The invitation read: “On behalf of Mayor Michelle Wu, I cordially invite you and a guest to the Electeds of Color Holiday Party on Wednesday, December 13 at 5:30 p.m. at the Parkman House, 33 Beacon Street.”DosSantos then issued an apology after she discovered that she had accidentally...

    Boston, Massachusetts, Mayor Michelle Wu (D) is defending her holiday party that excluded white city council members after receiving backlash when an invitation leaked online. Seven out of the 13 council members are white and were “uninvited” from Wu’s “Electeds of Color” gathering after they were mistakenly emailed an invitation, the New York Post reported. Wu admitted that white council members were accidentally invited to the party, which was meant to exclude them, but said it was an “honest mistake.” “We’ve had individual conversations with everyone so people understand that it was truly just an honest mistake that went out...
  • Boston’s woke Mayor plans secret Christmas party. No white people allowed.

    In a recent turn of events, the Mayor of Boston has stirred controversy by hosting a holiday party exclusively for “electeds of color,” a move that has raised eyebrows and legal questions about racial discrimination. The controversy escalated when the email invitation, intended only for non-white city council members, was mistakenly sent to all council members, including their white counterparts. The party, which is still scheduled to take place, has become the focal point of discussions surrounding racial inclusivity and legal implications. The Mayor’s decision to exclude white council members from the event has been met with criticism, with one...

    Vice President Harris' holiday party speech was interrupted by a Democrat state representative who called for a cease-fire in the Middle East. Harris was in the middle of speaking at a Christmas party on Monday night when Delaware state Rep. Madinah Wilson-Anton held up a sign that read "cease-fire" and began yelling at the vice president. "Madam Vice President, I am a rep from Delaware. Did you know in Bethlehem they are not celebrating Christmas? Did you know in Bethlehem, baby Jesus is under rubble? Why won't you call for a cease-fire?" Wilson-Anton shouted. The vice president cut off the...
  • Is it the party of Reagan or the party of Trump? A time for choosing as the clock ticks. | Column

    Ahead of last year’s midterm elections, I suggested to you on this page that Republicans had two years left to decide: Are they the party of Ronald Reagan, or the party of Donald Trump? A party of grounded conservative principles, advanced by Reagan’s high-minded optimism and penchant for compromise? Or a party of authoritarian, populist impulses, motivated by Trump’s dark and pessimistic vision of America as “a nation in decline”? For those of us who hoped that Republican voters would choose the former, recent months have offered little cause for optimism. Sen. Tim Scott’s withdrawal from the presidential primary earlier...

    A San Francisco venture capitalist who was once dubbed 'Silicon Valley's Party Animal' has been convicted of fraud totalling $19 million - and now faces up to 60 years in prison. Michael Brent Rothenberg, who was raised in a Jehovah's Witness family in Georgetown, Texas, used his dense network of successful Ivy League friends to set up his own VC fund in 2012 based on the strategy of throwing opulent parties. He rubbed shoulders with Mark Zuckerberg, rented out baseball stadiums for networking events, and threw all-day-and-night parties in a bid to attract investors and companies to invest in. This...

    Here is a discussion of principle, understanding, and insights into the newest speaker of the House. He is quoted as saying: Our people are losing their faith in government. ... I think we have to be mindful of that. We’re going to fight vigorously over our core principles because they’re at odds a lot of times now in this modern era. We have to sacrifice sometimes our preferences because that’s what’s necessary in a legislative body.Rather than fighting vigorously for his core principles as a member of the government, the ruling elite, he should adhere vigorously to his core principles,...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) explored creating a new political party with fellow centrist Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), according to an excerpt released Wednesday in Romney’s forthcoming biography. “They’d talked about the prospect before, but it was always hypothetical. Now Romney wanted to make it real,” the book excerpt reads. “His goal for the yet-unnamed party … would be to promote the kind of centrist policies he’d worked on with Manchin in the Senate.” Romney’s plans for the party, according to the biography excerpt, would not be to support a separate candidate, but to “pledge support to the candidate who came...
