He´s got to be better than former MA Senator (Rino) Scott Brown - on Fox Brown shows he is dumber than a bag of rocks.

So Obama loved this guy too and nominated him for undersecretary of health at Veterans Affairs? Really? Why did Obama love this guy?

As a general principal, I don´t think any zero appointment worthy of retention. Apparently, some swamps need draining less than others. I could see keeping him on as deputy...to help the new person with expertise...but in charge!?

Fake News Still Lyin´ About the Tea Party

Harriet Baldwin posted on Facebook: “Pisses me off when the alt-left media likens these paid Obama/Soros/Alinsky violent protesters to the Tea Party.” To Harriet, I say, “Amen sister!” Folks, I am a black singer/songwriter who has been in the Tea Party from the beginning. In 2008, Our Country Deserves Better PAC invited me on their “Stop Obama” national bus tour. In 2009, I wrote the “American Tea Party Anthem” which I performed at Tea Party rallies on 14 national bus tours with Tea Party Express and others. It has infuriated me the way the despicable fake news media intentionally branded

(Video) House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) told ABC´s George Stephanopoulos on Sunday that President Trump does not have a jobs bill four separate times when asked if there are issues that Democrats can work with the president on. "Are there any issues where you feel you can still work with the president?" Stephanopoulos asked Pelosi on ABC´s "This Week." He gave an example of a policy idea Trump campaigned on that seemed to sit well with Democrats. "Back in November, you talked about infrastructure," Stephanopoulos said. "He [Trump] talked about, perhaps, a $1 trillion infrastructure plan. We don´t

Jimmy Kimmel takes aim at Donald
Trump in opening monologue

Jimmy Kimmel ribbed Donald Trump‘s taste in movies during his Oscars monologue Sunday, making clear just what he thought of the president’s criticism of Meryl Streep. The award show’s host pulled no punches during his opening monologue, joking that the 20-time-nominee was getting a bit too much credit for her acting chops. “We’re here to honor the actors who seem great, but actually really aren’t. And of all the ‘great’ actors here in Hollywood, one in particular has stood the test of time for her many uninspiring and overrated performances,” Kimmel dead-panned. “From her mediocre early work in ‘The Deer Hunter’

During a radio interview broadcast on Sunday, Linda Tripp, who was famously portrayed by John Goodman on Saturday Night Live during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, blasted SNL for what she described as a political campaign to “make me into a villain” instead of Bill and Hillary Clinton. Tripp says she was prompted to go public about the issue in response to the NBC comedy sketch show’s negative portrayal of President Donald Trump and top White House officials. She charged the show and the mainstream news media were engaged in a deliberate “campaign of disinformation, confusion, and essentially propaganda.” Tripp also

Politifact Says Trump Is Right But Proceeds
To Rate His Remark ‘Mostly False’

Politifact decided to fact-check one of Trump’s tweets Sunday and found that “the numbers check out.” The “fact-checking” site then rated the same tweet “mostly false.” “The media has not reported that the National Debt in my first month went down by $12 billion vs a $200 billion increase in Obama first mo,” Trump tweeted. The tweet from Trump came after Gateway Pundit reported on the change in the national debt under the two respective presidents and after former Godfather Pizza CEO Herman Cain brought up the figures on Fox News. Politifact wrote: “The numbers check out. And in fact,

While the awards season has already seen plenty of stars take their fashion statements to the red carpet with varying success, everyone knows that the Academy Awards are where to go big. But sadly for many of the actors, actresses and industry leaders making their way into the 89th Annual Oscars on Sunday, big bucks spent on works by top designers doesn´t necessarily mean success in the dress category. Leading the way for this year´s worst-dressed on the carpet is actress Leslie Mann, who appeared to be going for a Beauty & the Beast´s Belle vibe, but ended up just

California Gov. Jerry Brown urged lawmakers to provide the funds needed to increase flood protection following the Orville dam fracture. Following heavy winter rains in the state, Brown said $437 million is needed for flood-related projects. During a press conference in Sacramento on Friday, he asked lawmakers in Washington to approve $387 million in water bond money, with the remaining $50 million coming from existing general fund money. "The recent storms have had a real impact," he said. "We´ve got dam spillways eroding. We´ve got roadways crumbling. We have aging infrastructure and it´s maxed out." The $387 million would be

WASHINGTON — Democrats have invited immigrants and foreigners to President Donald Trump´s first address to Congress in an effort to put a face on those who could be hurt by the Republican´s policies. Lawmakers typically get one guest ticket apiece for presidential addresses, as they will for Tuesday´s prime-time speech, and the invites often go to family, friends or someone from back home. To send a message to Trump, Democrats have invited the Iraqi-American doctor who discovered elevated levels of lead in the blood of many children living in Flint, Michigan; a Pakistani-born doctor who delivers critical care to patients

Former NAACP branch president Rachel Dolezal, who lied about being black but still identifies as black, is now jobless, living on food stamps and expects to lose her home next month. “There’s no protected class for me,” the former NAACP branch president told The Guardian. “I’m this generic, ambiguous scapegoat for white people to call me a race traitor and take out their hostility on. And I’m a target for anger and pain about white people from the black community. It’s like I am the worst of all these worlds.” Dolezal has applied for over 100 jobs, but has received no offers,

President Donald Trump has announced that he will not be attending the White House Correspondents´ Dinner this year in a shocking break with tradition. ´I will not be attending the White House Correspondents´ Association dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!´ Trump tweeted on Saturday afternoon. His announcement comes amid growing tensions between his administration and media outlets. Trump attended the dinner in 2011 with his wife Melania where he was repeatedly mocked by then-president Barack Obama. He skipped the dinner in 2016 during the presidential campaign where Obama again took aim at the then-candidate, saying: ´I´m a little

Oscar night is on us and perennial nominee Meryl Streep is back in the news again, whining. It wasn´t enough that she sang for her supper with a long-winded, cliche-filled diatribe against Donald Trump at the Golden Globes earlier this month, repeating every leftist canard, hitting every touchstone. Now she´s gotten into a fight over evening gowns with leading Parisian designer Karl Lagerfeld, who is well-known for having a politically conservative streak. It´s a he-said, she-said controversy. Last week, Lagerfeld accused Streep of being ´cheap´ for refusing to wear one of his gowns at the Oscars, on the grounds that she

Churches across the US are fighting back against the Trump administration’s mandate to ramp up deportations with new sanctuary practices of their own, using private homes in their congregations as shelter and potentially creating a modern-day underground railroad to ferry undocumented immigrants from house to house or into Canada. Church leaders from California to Illinois and New York told BuzzFeed News they’re willing to take their sanctuary operations for undocumented immigrants underground should federal immigration authorities, emboldened by Trump’s recent directives to take a harder line on deportations, ignore precedent and raid their campuses. “We’re willing to take that risk

Last Sunday Chelsea Clinton, usually such a reticent public figure, took to Times Square with her 2-year-old daughter, Charlotte, to march in the Muslim solidarity rally. “Thank you to all who organized #IAmAMuslimToo today — Charlotte’s 1st protest rally. #NoBanNoWallNoRaids,” she tweeted. Chelsea’s also promoting her new, co-authored book “Governing Global Health,” with a soft-focus Q&A in the Sunday New York Times and an eight-city tour in April. It’s a more high-profile push than the one for her last, a 2015 YA book called “It’s Your World,” which focused on low-key school visits — exercising, perhaps, an abundance of caution during her
