Rosie O´Donnell on Trump´s
Campaign: ´It´s a Nightmare´
Newsbusters, by Tim Graham    Original Article
Posted By: happywarrior- 11/28/2015 4:49:49 PM     Post Reply
AP television writer Lynn Elber has a celebrity update: “Rosie O´Donnell isn´t mincing words when it comes to Donald Trump´s presidential campaign.” That wouldn’t be a surprise, considering Trump mocked her in the first debate. Said O´Donnell: "It´s a nightmare." She didn´t elaborate, adding only, "That´s my quote." The comments came as O´Donnell´s doing publicity for a cameo this week on the Fox drama Empire. The battles between Trump and O´Donnell go back years. In 2006, Noel Sheppard blogged about O´Donnell criticizing Trump from her perch on The View for remarks about a winner of his Miss USA beauty pageant,

Great-Grandson Of Winston Churchill:

“If Churchill were on Twitter today, he would be shouting against this deal with Iran and saying that this is the second most unwise thing we have ever done, the first being allowing Hitler to rise,” Sir Winston Churchill’s great-grandson Jonathan Sandys tells The Daily Caller. “And he would be warning the world to sit up and wake up.” (Snip) We can learn a thing or two from Prime Minister Churchill about contending with manipulative powers bent on global subjugation. A flesh and blood legacy of the World War II champion whom he knows as Great-Grandpapa, Sandys is committed to

(Photo) Someone has been chaining spiked baseball bats to poles throughout San Francisco, and continue to confuse police officers as to their intended purpose. Officers first received reports of wooden or metal baseball bats appearing on poles and parking meters in the city on Thanksgiving morning, San Francisco Police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said. The bats have “spikes” that run through them, and nearly 30 of them have popped up around the city, most recently Friday morning around Fisherman’s Wharf. While the reason for the bats’ appearance is unknown, Andraychak said the spikes on the objects allow them to be considered

It would be easy to call protesting college students crybabies and brats for pitching hissy fits over hurt feelings, but this likely would lead to such torrents of tearful tribulation that the nation’s university system would have to shut down for a prolonged period of grief counseling. Besides, it would be insensitive.

(Video) After a gunman opened fire at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood on Friday, killing three people and injuring several others, President Obama urged the nation to increase controls over "the easy accessibility of weapons of war." "This is not normal," the president said in a statement Saturday. "We can´t let it become normal." "If we truly care about this -- if we´re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience -- then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our

Republican strategist Karl Rove arranged a meeting between fundraisers for GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson and casino tycoon Steve Wynn, Bloomberg is reporting. Wynn is an occasional business competitor of Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, whose campaign sees the meeting as an attempt by the GOP establishment to help Carson topple his chief rival in the primary race. "Karl Rove is at the center of the GOP establishment — fearful of what real leadership in Washington D.C. will accomplish," Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told Bloomberg in a statement. "Mr. Trump continues to expose the all-talk, no action politicians propped up their dark

On a day usually defined by frenzied bargain hunting, Black Lives Matter protesters thronged downtown Seattle on Friday, calling for police accountability and decrying the deaths of African Americans at the hands of law-enforcement officers. The impassioned and largely peaceful Black Friday event began in the early afternoon and stretched well past dark. An estimated crowd of 700 people at times blocked traffic and tried to force its way into the Westlake Center and Pacific Place malls, only to be turned away by police. The annual tree-lighting ceremony proceeded on schedule, though protesters’ chants often drowned out the musical performers.

In an interview with international news organisations this week, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte suggested that western European states might need to bring in a "mini-Schengen" to deal with the bloc´s migrant crisis, referring to the Schenghen Agreement that began the abolition of internal border controls in much of the European Union. A shrunken agreement to leave internal borders open might, for example, exclude countries in south-eastern Europe. A huge number of refugees have arrived in Europe on boats from Turkey, landing in Greece and attempting to travel north. He turned that into a more startling analogy, according to a

(Video) Sarasota, Florida -While the Donald Trump campaign has been called a circus in the past, this Saturday might have been the only time an actual elephant was on the scene. At a campaign stop in Sarasota, Florida, what appears to be an Asian elephant was seen walking around outside the grounds with "Trump -- Make American Great Again" painted on its side. (Photo) A volunteer at the rally told CNN that the elephant is from a local group, and the Sarasota Republican Committee reached out and asked to have it at the event.

From Kevin Cirilli and Ben Brody writing at Bloomberg Politics: Republican strategist Karl Rove helped set up a meeting between top fundraisers for Ben Carson and casino mogul Steve Wynn. Rove confirmed to Bloomberg Politics that he acted as the go-between for the Carson camp and Wynn, a sometimes business competitor of Donald Trump, the rival Carson has been batting all fall for the Republican nomination. “I introduced them but I don’t know anything further about that,” said Rove, who added that he did not attend the meeting.

The gunman who opened fire on a Planned Parenthood clinic on Friday, killing three, has a long criminal history including a peeping tom charge and another for animal cruelty. Robert L. Dear, now 57, was accused of domestic abuse in 1997 by his wife when the couple lived in Walterboro, S.C., police reports provided to The Daily Caller show. But Dear will face much tougher charges after he was arrested following a standoff with police on Friday afternoon, more than five hours after he opened fire near the Planned Parenthood clinic.

The demand to see Donald Trump in Sarasota has been so overwhelming the candidate is expected to speak twice today, with the first event outside Robarts Arena so those who can´t get in can still see Trump. Trump´s Florida co-chairman Joe Gruters said the candidate will touch down in his helicopter around noon and speak to the overflow crowd outside. About 14,000 people RSVP´d to see Trump speak but Robarts only holds 5,100."We hit capacity," Gruters said.

A high-profile anti-Islam activist has posted a threatening video online in which he vowed to go to New York to confront Muslims - sparking the FBI to send a warning to the NYPD.

In the video, Ritzheimer held a gun and also laid into The Islamic Post, a publication of the Hancock, New York-based organization the Muslims of America.

Dramatic footage has emerged online showing a suspected ISIS fighter crying after he was taken prisoner by Kurdish forces in Iraq. The prisoner does not appear to have any noticeable injuries as he seats in the back of the armoured truck. Much to the amusement of the Kurdish forces, the prisoner cries and moans loudly as he waits to be taken away. Dressed in civilian clothing, the prisoner appears to have had his hands bound behind his back and his eyes covered with a makeshift blindfold. His painful wailing noises gain no sympathy from his captors, thought to be members of

If police shooting video had been released
sooner, would Emanuel be mayor?

Would Mayor Rahm Emanuel have been re-elected if voters had seen the video of Laquan McDonald´s execution? No. Rahm would have lost the election. Why? Because he would have lost Chicago´s black vote. Without the black vote, Rahm Emanuel would not be the 9.5-fingered boss of Bartertown. Black political figures would have been uneasy standing with Rahm. They would have run away. They couldn´t stand with him. Not if that video came out during the election campaign, the video showing white cop Jason Van Dyke shooting McDonald, hitting him with two rounds, and then, with McDonald on the ground, hitting him with 14 more shots.

From the aggrieved pitch of recent student protests against racism, the naive observer might be surprised that we are now 50 years past the 1960s. Today’s protesters have not endured the open hostility and dismissal that James Meredith did as the first African-American student at Ole Miss in 1962, when white students turned their backs on him in the cafeteria and bounced a basketball in the room over his at all hours of the night. As a black college student in the early 1980s, my experience felt different enough from his that it never occurred to me to characterize my

On his PBS late-night talk show on Monday night, Charlie Rose brought on Gen. David Petraeus for an hour to discuss Iraq, Syria, and defeating ISIS. There was one obvious question: Would Rose ask the general about the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mails? After all, Gen. Petraeus was sentenced to two years probation and fined $100,000 for possessing classified information at an unauthorized location. The answer – this being liberal PBS – was “No.” The transcript ran 9,532 words without the word “e-mail.” Was this at the general’s request? Or just liberal scandal suppression?

By any measure, we are losing the war against ISIS and radical Islam. A bigger problem is we do not yet realize we are losing or why. Their legions are growing, their ambitions are apocalyptic, and our resolve is as strong as silly putty. (Snip) If we are honest we must face a very dark and sobering fact: The outcome of this war is far from certain. We are proud of being a nation of can-do optimists, but we are also a nation in denial about a culture in a tailspin. The real enemy is not “over there” in Syria

Human rights activist Eddie Canales said the woman is one of hundreds who die in the brush.

Forward-thinking politicians need to develop a reform agenda that can help our society move toward a new version of the American Dream. The American financial system is failing small businesses. The Wall Street Journal has some eye-popping statistics: The biggest banks in the U.S. are making far fewer loans to small businesses than they did a decade ago, ceding market share to alternative lenders that charge significantly higher rates. Together, 10 of the largest banks issuing small loans to business lent $44.7 billion in 2014, down 38% from a peak of $72.5 billion in 2006, according to an analysis of

Legendary country music artist Willie Nelson told PJM he is a great fan of Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Nelson was in Washington to receive the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song from the Library of Congress. The award ceremony featured performances by Neil Young and Rosanne Cash. Given that the country star has been active in the push to legalize marijuana, PJM asked Nelson which candidate he plans to support in the presidential race. “Well, you know, it’s not over yet.
