Laura Ingraham’s Brother
Goes to War Against Her

The Daily Beast, by Maxwell Tani

Original Article

Posted By:danvillebill, 9/12/2018 5:47:14 PM

Curtis Ingraham uses Twitter to vent his political frustrations—like many left-leaning users in the Trump era. To an audience of just a few hundred followers, the Northern California-based teacher expresses outrage at new White House policies, engages with popular #resistance figures like former George W. Bush speechwriter David Frum and the Krassenstein brothers, and bashes Trump’s right-wing media cheerleaders on Fox News. While most of his tweets go largely unnoticed, a few people have taken notice because of what he has to say about one media personality in particular: his sister, Fox News primetime host Laura Ingraham.

I truly don´t understand this kind of nonsense.
I have relatives in San Fran, Silicon Valley, Marin County, Portland and NYC. They are all libs. We agree on almost nothing politically. Yet we love each other, have fun together and feel blessed that we are family. Hopefully Laura´s brother will get some perspective on what´s important in life. In my world, family vs. politics is a very easy choice. There is ALWAYS something to talk about besides politics.

Having a family member or two who are idiots is pretty common.

No big deal.

I have a radical adult offspring who is a graduate of some of the most elite schools in the country. This adult offspring no longer speaks to us because we voted for Trump. The brainwashing that goes on at these colleges would have been unfathomable to me just two years ago.

He sounds like the under achiever in the family compared to his sister. It obviously makes his male appendage feel small.

Trust me, he´s lived in CA too long. He´s caught up in the hate everybody, and everything associated with Trump/ Republicans. I, too, have a beloved family who are all libs and I´m alone. Believe me, it´s tough. However, we don´t discuss politics and everyone is happy!
Laura´s brother needs to get a life.

A. You don´t get to pick your family.
B. When one is ignorant about how large a playing field they are entering, it just makes the sibling cringe.
Curtis, you aren´t special. You no not of what you babble. Do you really want to cause your sister that much pain? Why would anyone allow a vindictive person like you near their children in any setting? Have you considered what you are doing to your loved ones? Are you actually that callous, or simply ignorant? Grow up.

What does he have to complain or worry about?

He lives in California, where they aren´t in any danger of much of the Trump agenda, but may benefit from the tax cuts and corporate tax rate reductions (they won´t give those back, I´ll bet).

If it´s abortion? Heck, it´s in the CA constitution that it will be legal even if Roe is overturned - so that would NOT be an issue for anyone in California (12% of the United States population).

He has a very nice state pension coming when he retires (likely 2% of his final pay year times the number of years worked - so if 30 years x 2 = 60% pension, in this example. Average teacher salary in CA is $70K, so at 30 years, it´s likely going to be $100K plus)
Laura has to work hard and save to have her retirement.

He´ll have lifelong medical covered too, and the state will be the supplemental after he is required to enroll in Medicare.

Poor guy, huh?

Good Lord, I think I (and all of us who watch, and listen to, and love Laura) know her better than her brother does. Makes me sad that families are so divided by politics now, but it is a new reality we have to live with. My family has not escaped it either, but I can tell you that the members of the family who don´t like the Trump supporters in the family have become so belligerent and caustic they aren´t missed at family gatherings.

What a sad, inarticulate, unfocused, emotion (no love though) driven bunch of drivel. I agree with some of the other posters, I think he´s jealous of his sister´s fame and success. Also, if these quotes are accurate, he´s not half as smart as his sister. This sort of random raving is very typical of many leftists. They don´t really know what they´re talking about, but their political leaders stir them up emotionally and so they lash out in anger and frustration.

I doubt that Curtis is jealous of Laura. She´s been famous for a long time, and he hasn´t spoken out until the last few years. He´s talking about hypocrisy. There´s plenty of hypocrisy on both sides. I agree with him about his sister´s anger. She´s way too strident and that´s why I can´t watch her show.

It reminds me of my brother and me. He changed from a young Goldwater supporter to a lefty during the hippy days when he dropped out of Stanford (on scholarship no less) to get his "head on straight ". I am 11 years younger so I kept my head on my shoulders (thank goodness missed the hippy era) and became more conservative than my center right-leaning parents. He still loves Obama. I haven´t seen or spoken with him in years.

Actress Mareli Miniutti filed a domestic violence restraining order against "Creepy Porn Lawyer" Michael Avenatti on Monday. We´re now learning about the details behind the ordeal that lead to the restraining order. According to a report by The Blast, Miniutti and Avenatti have been living together since January. Last week, the two allegedly got into an argument over money at which point Avenatti reportedly called Miniutti an "ungrateful f*cking b*tch." She claimed he then threw pillows from the bed at her. Miniutti said Avenatti yelled, "Do not disrespect me" and said that she couldn´t stay at his apartment that night.

I had been dreading my trip to the Cuddle Castle for the past few days. I´d set out, in the spirit of inquiry, to attend a Cuddle Party, a gathering I´d heard whispers about but had never seen up close. Unlike most parties, I had to pay for this one. Thirty-six dollars covered four hours of cuddling at a secret location in San Francisco´s Richmond neighborhood. I was instructed to eat beforehand, bring water and "soft fluffy things" to "enhance" the experience, and to wear comfy clothes, such as pajamas.

All my life I have reminded fellow Jews in America that we are the luckiest Jews to have ever lived in a non-Jewish country. I know what I’m talking about. I wrote a book on anti-Semitism, taught Jewish history at Brooklyn College, and fought anti-Semitism since I was 21, when Israel sent me into the Soviet Union to smuggle in Jewish religious items and smuggle out Jewish names. Even after the massacre of eleven Jews in a Pittsburgh synagogue, this assessment remains true. But the greatest massacre of Jews in American history is a unique American tragedy.

President Trump apparently watches this show during his early morning “executive time,” so there’s a chance he saw this today when not one but two of the show’s co-hosts challenged the phrase “enemy of the people” as a way to refer to the media. “I really wish he would lose that term,” co-host Kilmeade said, adding, “It doesn’t help anybody.” He continued, “It doesn’t push back on the media that he wants to push back on and I think it gets too many other people…get shrapnel with that statement.

Leaders of the Alaskan Republican Party are weighing a reprimand for Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R) for not voting to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Alaska´s GOP has asked Murkowski to send its state central committee any information she thinks may be relevant to its decision, The Associated Press reported on Monday. Party Chairman Tuckerman Babcock said the committee may issue a statement or withdraw its support for Murkowski. In the case of the latter, the committee would encourage officials to find a replacement and ask Murkowski not to run as a Republican for reelection.

For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,” before quickly correcting herself to say “all three chambers of government,” naming the presidency along with the House and Senate. “If we work our butts off to make

In a lengthy, taped interview that aired on Sunday, Fox News´s Chris Wallace asked President Donald Trump some expected questions -- about the Mueller investigation, "fake news," the election, the Kashoggi murder, his divisive tone -- and then came something unexpected. Wallace wondered if Trump would try to amend the Constitution so he could serve a third term. The exchange began when Wallace asked the president to rank himself "in the pantheon of great presidents." "There is Lincoln and Washington, there´s FDR and Reagan. Do you make the top 10?" Wallace asked Trump. "I think I´m doing a great job," Trump said. "I would

The watchdog group also wanted top Clinton aides and State Department officials, including Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills´, deposition videos made public.

Scientists say they have uncovered how and why wombats produce cube-shaped poo - the only known species to do so. The Australian marsupial can pass up to 100 deposits of poop a night and they use the piles to mark territory. The shape helps it stop rolling away. Despite having round anuses like other mammals, wombats do not produce round pellets, tubular coils or messy piles. Researchers revealed on Sunday the varied elasticity of the intestines help to sculpt the poop into cubes.

Sparked by his narrow defeat in a Texas Senate race, Beto O’Rourke is scrambling the 2020 presidential primary field, freezing Democratic donors and potential campaign staffers in place as they await word of his plans. Even prior to O’Rourke’s meteoric rise, many Democratic fundraisers had approached the large number of 2020 contenders with apprehension, fearful of committing early to one candidate. But the prospect of a presidential bid by O’Rourke, whose charismatic Senate candidacy captured the party’s imagination, has suddenly rewired the race.
