    A former CIA officer and self-proclaimed Democrat compared House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to launch a formal impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump to the Titanic hitting "a giant iceberg in 2020.”Speaking with “Tucker Carlson Tonight," Bryan Dean Wright, who is a lifelong Democrat, was asked by s host Tucker Carlson if Pelosi's decision was “wise idea.”No, it’s not, Tucker,” said Wright.

    If you have bad sex with a hooker, is it discounted? How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered? Why do you have to "put your two cents in"... but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"? Where's that extra penny going to? Once you're in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity? What disease did cured ham actually have? How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on...
  • Opinion: It’s official: The Trump tax cuts were a bust (YUuuge Barf Alert)

    Right before Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December 2017, President Trump proclaimed: “It’ll be fantastic for the middle-income people and for jobs, most of all ... I think we could go to 4%, 5% or even 6% [GDP growth], ultimately. We are back. We are really going to start to rock.” A year later, it’s very clear that the tax cuts boosted gross domestic product and jobs a bit — and just for one year. Its effects are fading as U.S. GDP growth appears likely to weaken in 2019. The only thing that “rocked” were corporate...
  • [Catholic Caucus] What Begins in Bad Theology Ends in Police Raids

    What Begins in Bad Theology Ends in Police Raids Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, whose Galveston-Houston chancery was raided this week by prosecutors in search of abuse-related files, always struck me as a pretty haunted and compromised figure. DiNardo came out of Pittsburgh and the corrupt milieu of Cardinal John Wright, who was an accused pederast and a mentor to such slimy prelates as Donald Wuerl. Google DiNardo and Cardinal Wright and a creepy picture comes up of a young DiNardo sitting next to Wright in a white tuxedo. Wright liked to dress his seminarians up in such attire, just as Wuerl...
  • McCain, advisers divided over Wright (Flashback)

    John McCain is at odds with many of his top advisers over launching a renewed attack on Barack Obama's ties to his long-time pastor and mentor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, according to campaign sources. Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and several top campaign officials see a sharp attack on Wright as the best — and perhaps last — chance to rattle Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill. ) and force voters to rethink their support of him. But McCain continues to overrule them, fearing a Wright attack would smack of desperation and racism, the officials said.
  • This ‘decorated Green Beret’ is a total fraud

    Brooklyn Army vet Papotia Reginald Wright’s resume was impressive by any standard. He boasted of a Purple Heart, Bronze Star — and a slew of other medals as an elite Green Beret that got him into swanky galas and even field access to the Giants. But Wright is nothing but an accomplished fraud, it was revealed Thursday. He never served with Special Forces, never served in any combat role — and never rose above the rank of “specialist,” according to military documents obtained through FOIA by Guardians of the Green Beret. Wright even lied about how long he was in...

    [I begin] with the story of a series of Socialist scholars conferences that Barack Obama attended when he lived in New York City between the years 1983 and 1985. And when I finally reconstructed what had gone on at these Socialist conferences that Barack Obama attended, I truly was amazed because what I saw was a kind of map of Barack Obama’s entire subsequent political career. It was at this Socialist conferences in New York in the mid-’80s that Barack Obama encountered the groups, the strategies, and the mentors who would guide him throughout his entire political career. [T]hese Socialist...

    Nothing about public assistance remotely requires calculated expulsion of fathers from families. Welfare was designed to maximize govt. bureaucrats' control of families' intimate lives, control only able to be exercised by destroying families by cutting out fathers. Chicago Priest Puts a Bounty on Heads of Killers, trumpets 60 Minutes Overtime, a pathetic bandaid that doesn't even stick. Alinskyite community activists like Dr. Pfleger aided and abetted the breakdown of the Black family, whose lost sons and fathers have metastasized into deadly cancer attacking their own communities. Pres. Lyndon Johnson's 'Great Society' never admitted their agenda item 'no fathers allowed' when...

    The U.S. Senate has confirmed Wilhelmina Wright as Minnesota’s newest federal judge. Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken announced Wright’s confirmation Tuesday. President Barack Obama nominated Wright for a U.S. District Court opening in Minnesota last April. Klobuchar and Franken formed a bipartisan advisory committee to help them recommend a candidate. The Minnesota Democrats note that the Senate confirmed only 10 federal district court judges in 2015.

    The controversial religious leader Jeremiah Wright compared Native Americans to Palestinians at the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March on the National Mall on Saturday, going so far as to assert that “Jesus was a Palestinian." Wright, who once served as pastor to President Obama, was one of several hours' worth of speakers in Washington, D.C., for an event called “Justice or Else!” that sought to channel the energy of the Black Lives Matter movement. Wright placed the event in historical context. “The same issue is being fought today and has been fought since 1948, and historians are carried...
  • Was Sa’ad Bin Laden Managing Al-Qaeda from Iran? (Osama's son more than just a "low-level" target)

    When Osama bin Laden was banished from Sudan in 1996, he left the country in a rented Soviet jet — an aged and antique Tupolev flown by a Russian pilot he did not trust. With him were a few bodyguards, his military commander, Saif al-Adel, and two sons named Sa’ad and Omar — both young men in their late teens. Although it was the corrupt Islamic government of Sudan that had robbed Osama bin Laden of much of his vast personal wealth, he blamed America for his misfortunes, according to Pulitzer Prize-winner Lawrence Wright. “He held America responsible for the...

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” host Chuck Todd asked Republican front-runner Donald Trump, “Can you imagine supporting or being comfortable if a Muslim ever became president of the United States?” Trump said, “I can say it’s something that at some point could happen. We’ll see. I mean you know at some point it could happen. Would I be comfortable? I don’t know if we have to address it right now but I think it’s certainly something that could happen.” Talking over Todd he added, “Some people have said it already happened, frankly, but, of course, you wouldn’t agree with...

    When the organization known as Black Lives Matter (BLM) was first formed right after George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the death of Trayvon Martin on July 13, 2013, most overlooked the true intentions of the group beyond their calls for “justice”. Fast forward to today and it can no longer be overlooked that their calls for justice now result in retaliatory violence against those whom they believe are the oppressors, namely white people in general and police officers specifically. By tracing the origins of the organization back to its philosophical formation in the 1960’s, we can begin to see how BLM...

    The daughter of Jeremiah Wright, the former pastor to President Barack Obama, was sent to jail Monday by a federal judge who revoked her bond in a money laundering case. Jeri Wright, 49, of Hazel Crest, was convicted last March of money laundering and lying to a grand jury in a case tied to a state grant. Her father was not involved in the case. Federal prosecutors sought to revoke her bond, alleging that she had participated in a ghost payrolling scheme at a private company in Indiana following her conviction. She has not been charged based on those ghost...

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The California State Senate held an "ethics refresher course" for its members after federal indictments were issued against two senators and a third was convicted. Senate leaders are hoping to regain the public's trust. The purpose of the course is to teach members and their staffs to avoid potentially compromising situations. It's the latest in a series of moves by senate leaders aimed at putting political distance between them and their colleagues facing criminal charges. The leader of California's state senate stopped all regular business on Wednesday so everyone could go "back to school" in a...
