  • Dear Gordon Sondland: “Assume” Makes an “ASS” out of “U” and “ME”

    Ok, so now weÂ’re supposed to impeach a sitting President of the United States based not just on hearsay and rank gossip, but on what Gordon Sondland assumed. And thus, the dumbest impeachment effort in the history of the known universe continues apace. Ambassador Sondland gave us a 45 minute opening statement this morning, longer even than the mind-numbing long and winding road of hearsay and gossip delivered by Bill Taylor a week ago. During that opening statement, the self-serving Sondland threw literally everyone involved in this entire Ukrainian fake controversy under the bus. He did his best to leave...

    From sanctuary cities to brutally high taxes, California is the undisputed center of gravity for today’s far-left. If you want to see how liberal policies would look on a national level, you don’t have to imagine it. You can just look at the thousands fleeing the once-great state. In the latest chapter of California’s descent into liberal madness, the city of Berkeley – a hotbed of radical liberalism – became the first city in America to ban natural gas from new homes and businesses, including restaurants that use natural gas for stoves. Environmentalists are reportedly hailing this development as a...

    Two top executives at AT&T and WarnerMedia flew to Atlanta a year ago to reassure Ted Turner to his face that the company would respect what he created and maintain editorial integrity at CNN, according to former CNN president Tom Johnson, who was also at the meeting. They met for lunch March 6, 2018 at the private Capital City Club in downtown Atlanta, about four blocks from Turner’s residence and a half mile from CNN Center. At the time, Dallas-based AT&T thought it was close to closing on its merger with Time Warner, which had purchased Turner Broadcasting from Turner...

    CNN founder Ted Turner still occasionally watches the network he started nearly four decades ago, although he thinks it’s a little heavy on politics. Turner said in an interview with “CBS Sunday Morning” that airs this weekend that he’d prefer his old network had a more balanced agenda, “but that’s just one man’s opinion.” …

    Shortly after the Washington Nationals fell to the Miami Marlins 5-0 on Sunday, Nationals shortstop Trea Turner found himself in an increasingly familiar position across the MLB. Multiple old tweets of Turner’s surfaced on Twitter on Sunday afternoon that contained offensive language. The tweets in question date back to 2011 and 2012, when Turner would have been 17 or 18 years old, and at least four of them contain both racist language and homophobic slurs. Be advised that the language used in the tweets below is offensive.

    You gotta see this video of the worst woman EVER being pulled over by the cops in Tenafly NJ: Her name is Caren Turner. At the time she was a Port Authority Official and a Democratic lobbyist, and a former aide to Hillary Clinton. And she might as well have “I’m with her” tattooed on her forehead, because she is EXACTLY what I imagine when I think of Hillary’s biggest supporters. She’s white, upper middle class, entitled, 60+, and desperately wants to see a woman President before she dies. The car was pulled over for having tinted windows and an...

    Telemann's Concerto in D Major for 3 Trumpets – 4th Movement, Pesto. These paintings were done when Turner was between 12 and 20 years old (1787-1795). The self portraits show him at 15 and 16. Evident in this roughly chronological exposition is his academic and architectural training, with early traces of what will eventually become Turner’s style as pre-impressionist Painter of Light.

    CLEVELAND, Ohio – Nina Turner, the Democratic former state senator from Cleveland who has emerged as a rallying figure for Bernie Sanders' disappointed supporters, said she is considering an offer to run for vice president on the Green Party's national ticket. Massachusetts physician Jill Stein, the party's presumptive presidential nominee, reached out with the pitch, Turner told cleveland.com Sunday evening in a telephone interview. The Green Party opens its convention Thursday in Houston. Turner would stand for nomination there if she agrees to be Stein's running mate. Her decision is expected in the coming days.

    (CNN) — The number appears resounding: More than one million people want Judge Aaron Persky to lose his job for what's been widely viewed as a lenient sentence in the Brock Turner rape case. So, more people than who live in San Francisco want to see Persky tossed out for handing a white, well-to-do former Stanford University athlete a six-month sentence for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman. But will this yield any real action, or is this just another example of "slacktivism" or "clicktivism," arguably meaningless acts of supporting social causes without investing any real effort in effecting change?

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails reveal how prominently the Clinton Foundation factored into her thinking as America’s top diplomat, raising questions about where she drew the line between official business and aiding the family charity run by her husband and daughter. In one instance, Mrs. Clinton appeared to try to steer a Haiti earthquake recovery project to the foundation, according to new emails released this week as the State Department belatedly complies with open records requests for her communications during her four years in office. Another email shows Mrs. Clinton directing a State Department employee to handle...

    Just when controversial pastor Mark Driscoll was hoping to make a new start, former members of his old stomping grounds at Seattle’s Mars Hill Church have filed a lawsuit alleging Driscoll and his chief elder ran the now-shuttered megachurch like an organized crime syndicate, in which church members became unwitting participants. The lawsuit was filed on Monday in the Western District of Washington U.S. District Court in Seattle under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, a law originally created for prosecution of Mafia figures. Former members have been threatening to file such a lawsuit for months to find out...
