Beto O’Rourke Dreams of One Texas.
Ted Cruz Sees Another Clearly.
New York Times, by Matt Flegenheimer    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/1/2018 7:31:22 AM     Post Reply
LONGVIEW, Tex. — Beto O’Rourke was racing left again, insisting he knew what he was doing. “Hydroplaning there a little bit,” he said softly, doing 75 in the passing lane through an East Texas downpour, double-fisting beef jerky in his silver pickup. This self-assurance was understandable. In his campaign against Senator Ted Cruz, Mr. O’Rourke has been attempting the Texas equivalent of walking on water — winning statewide as a liberal Democrat — without yet losing his balance. There is bipartisan consensus, including from Mr. Cruz, that Mr. O’Rourke could actually prevail in November — maybe — if the blue

Lawyer was told Russia

A senior Justice Department lawyer says a former British spy told him at a breakfast meeting two years ago that Russian intelligence believed it had Donald Trump “over a barrel,” according to multiple people familiar with the encounter. The lawyer, Bruce Ohr, also says he learned that a Trump campaign aide had met with higher-level Russian officials than the aide had acknowledged, the people said. The previously unreported details of the July 30, 2016, breakfast with Christopher Steele, which Ohr described to lawmakers this week in a private interview, reveal an exchange of potentially explosive information about Trump between two

This Opinion Just In… Dr. Mueller’s
Endless Surgery Defines Malpractice

Imagine that a 40-year-old agrees to a colonoscopy. His doctor detects no evidence of disease, and it’s a decade early for a preventive procedure. But the physician insists on checking anyway. He knocks the patient out and finds...nothing. But, since he’s strapped to a gurney and paralyzed by Propofol, the doctor keeps looking. He opens the patient’s abdomen, inspects the internal organs, and finds no hint of cancer. But he removes the appendix because…why not? Then he peers down the man’s throat. Still no cancer. But — great idea! — he snatches the tonsils. Next, the doctor orders an endodontist to perform 12 root canals.



Al Gore calls on Trump to resign:

Former Vice President Al Gore said the best thing President Trump can do is resign. Mr. Gore, who stood steadfast by President Bill Clinton during his impeachment, was asked by KTTV-11 “what’s your message to President Trump when it comes to climate?” A chuckling Mr. Gore said “oh, my only message would be ‘resign.’” “I don’t mean to be flippant about this,” he reassured interviewer Elex Michaelson of the Fox station in Los Angeles. “I don’t think he’s prepared to listen to advice about the importance of clean air and clean water.” The former vice president, who was in Tinseltown for an activist-training climate conference,

VIDEO: Two people help Hillary up

Hillary Clinton still needs help with stairs. The Clintons were in Detroit today for Aretha Franklin’s funeral, and after viewing the open casket, the two made their way to different parts of the stage. As Hillary approached the stairs, two people grabbed each of her arms to help her ascend the handful of steps. Watch: (Video) - Earlier this year, Clinton wasn’t as successful on a staircase. While visiting Jahaz Mahal in Dhar’s Mandu in March, Clinton was attempting to descend about 15 stairs. (Video) - She was holding the arm of an aide. With Huma Abedin following behind, Clinton slipped about halfway down the descent,

Campaign-finance laws are hopelessly
confusing when it comes to hush money

Donald Trump’s critics say his defense of hush payments to women who claim to have had sex with him betrays a misunderstanding of campaign finance law. If so, it is hard to see how the president could have “knowingly and willfully” violated the law, as required for a criminal conviction. Last week, Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal lawyer, pleaded guilty to making an excessive campaign contribution by paying porn star Stephanie Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels, $130,000 in exchange for her silence about her alleged affair with Trump. Cohen also admitted he caused an illegal corporate campaign donation

The Daily Beast’s bombshell on NBC News’ alleged internal efforts to kill Ronan Farrow’s expose on Harvey Weinstein is “only the beginning” of their reporting on the network’s misconduct problems, a source told Mediaite. The mood at NBC News was one of surprise at the Beast’s new report on Farrow, with some relieved it was not the devastating story they expected, one network source said. That optimism might be misplaced: Mediaite learned the Daily Beast has spoken to close to 100 sources at NBC News for a broader report

We lost two mavericks within a week. On Saturday, we lost the legendary John McCain. On Tuesday, we lost his loyal sidekick, Sen. Lindsey O. Graham. Graham remains alive and well, but after serving for two decades as Robin to McCain’s Batman, Graham buried whatever remained of his own reputation for iconoclasm even before his partner’s funeral. On Tuesday, Graham took a seat on the couch of “Fox & Friends,” President Trump’s favorite show, and sealed his transition from apostate to Trump apparatchik. “Word of caution to the public,” he said. “A lot of people try to convict President Trump.

DETROIT — The bishop who officiated Aretha Franklin’s funeral apologized Friday to Ariana Grande for how he touched her onstage and a joke he made about her name. Bishop Charles H. Ellis III led Franklin’s funeral and awkwardly greeted Grande on stage after she performed “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.” Images of the moment showed Ellis’ hand holding Grande well above her waist, with his fingers pressing against one side of her chest. The preacher apologized in an interview with The Associated Press at the cemetery where Franklin was interred late Friday. “It would never be my intention to touch any

With the benefit of time, reflection, and prayer to the atheist gods, I’ve grudgingly made peace with the idea that Stormy Daniels’s media-whore lawyer probably is going to run for president and can’t be ruled out as the eventual nominee. We invited this by nominating Trump. Avenatti is karmic punishment for our hubris. I accept it. But every man has his limit. Waffles 2.0 is my limit. There must be some conceptual boundary to the size of the 2020 Democratic clown car. As a matter of pure physics, the Iowa debate stage can only accommodate — what, 40-50 candidates, maybe? Either Kerry or Marianne Williamson gets

Trump Policies Push Obamacare Rates Down

The Democrats and the media have repeatedly accused President Trump and the GOP Congress of “sabotaging” Obamacare, claiming that changes to the “Affordable Care Act” would result in unprecedented premium hikes in 2019. In July, for example, Nancy Pelosi made the following claim: “Their latest assault on health care will significantly increase premiums for millions of hard-working American families across the nation.” (Snip) It goes without saying that the Democrats and the “news” media were deliberately attempting to mislead the public. In reality, 2019 will be the first year ever in which Obamacare premiums

The U.S. Supreme Court declined on Thursday to force the city of Philadelphia to resume the placement of children in need of foster care with a Catholic agency that refuses to accept gay couples as foster parents. In a decision that Catholic Social Services had said would force its foster care program to close, the justices refused the religious agency’s request for an injunction compelling the city to allow it to place children in foster homes while litigation over the dispute continues in lower courts. n the brief order that did not give any reasons for the decision, three conservative members of the court, Justices Clarence Thomas,

More than two dozen MS-13 gang members are facing charges following a murder and drug trafficking investigation in a rural California farm city, according to the US attorney in Sacramento. The notorious street gang is said to have taken advantage of an understaffed police department in Mendota and terrorized the city of about 11,000 people. McGregor Scott revealed the charges in a press conference Friday in Fresno, about 35 miles to the east of Mendota. He said those arrested in the small farm community have also been linked to killings and assaults across the US in New York, Las Vegas,

A state Senate candidate in Brooklyn vying to unseat an eight-term incumbent by riding the coattails of Democratic Socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has come under fire for allegedly embellishing stories about her past. Julia Salazar’s campaign to defeat Sen. Martin Dilan in Sept. 13 Democratic primary has been filled with falsities and contradictions, including claims of a being a Colombian-born “proud immigrant” of an economically distressed, working-class family. In reality, the 27-year-old insurgent progressive is a US-born. former anti-abortion Republican who grew up in a middle class-household in Florida, according to records

DETROIT -- A fiery, old-school eulogist at the funeral of Aretha Franklin fell flat for many in the crowd and prompted a social media uproar when he declared "black America has lost its soul," black women are incapable of raising sons alone and the Black Lives Matter movement is unfounded in the face of black-on-black crime.

Gothenburg (Sweden) - Matilda Hagerman laughs with her friends as she queues at a man-free music festival, which kicked off in Sweden on Friday in protest against a wave of sexual assaults at festivals in recent years. "This festival was necessary because of everything that happened during festivals last year," says the 27-year-old student with long pink hair and purple lipstick as her friends nod in agreement. Held in Sweden´s second-largest city of Gothenburg, the two-day Statement Festival, forbids men but not transgender people.

Kanye West has said some pretty bizarre things in the past, but his intelligence never got insulted by a major news outlet. Until now, that is. What changed? Did West suddenly flunk a series of IQ exams? Pen a typo-laden tweet that went viral? File an op-ed teeming with unhinged arguments? The egocentric rapper merely embraced President Donald Trump. That turned media outlets that once chuckled at his curious English and crass political statements (George Bush doesn’t care about black people) into a cyber firing squad. CNN’s Don Lemon led the way. The unabashedly liberal broadcaster trashed an interview West

Italy´s far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has blamed an attempted robbery of a Sicilian police commissioner on the EU migrant crisis, claiming his country ´is insane´. Nuccio Garozzo woke to find two men having broken into his home in Catania, Sicily, and was reportedly attacked with a razor blade when he took on the would-be burglars. Local media reports that the two fled the scene, but that Mr Garozzo was able to apprehend one of them, who was later identified as an 18-year-old Gambian migrant.

Paris/Baghdad - Iran has given ballistic missiles to Shi’ite proxies in Iraq and is developing the capacity to build more there to deter attacks on its interests in the Middle East and to give it the means to hit regional foes, Iranian, Iraqi and Western sources said. (Snip) The Zelzal, Fateh-110 and Zolfaqar missiles in question have ranges of about 200 km to 700 km, putting Saudi Arabia’s capital Riyadh or the Israeli city of Tel Aviv within striking distance if the weapons were deployed in southern or western Iraq. The Quds Force, the overseas arm of Iran’s powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), has bases in both those areas.

President Trump will visit Paris on Nov. 11 to take part in a commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I, the White House said Friday. The ceremony at the Arc de Triomphe with French President Emmanuel Macron is expected to be a somber affair. “The president’s participation in this event will highlight the sacrifices that Americans have made, not only during World War I but also in the century since, in the name of liberty,” the White House said. While in Europe, the president also will visit Ireland. The White House also said Mr. Trump will travel later in November to attend the G20 summit in

Chicago - Detroit authorities on Wednesday ordered drinking water shut off at all city public schools after elevated levels of lead and copper were found in water at more than a dozen buildings with antiquated plumbing systems. Over the weekend, supplies were cut at 16 schools and bottled water was provided until water coolers arrive, Detroit Public Schools Community District Superintendent Nikolai Vitti said. Although there is no evidence of excessive levels of copper or lead in other schools, Vitti decided to shut off water throughout the system “until a deeper and broader analysis can be conducted to determine the long-term
