House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., argued Thursday that Republicans are more responsible for the downfall of political discourse than Democrats a day after House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., was shot during a practice ahead of the congressional charity baseball game. At her weekly press conference, Pelosi was asked if she saw the "worsening in political behavior" equally in both Republicans and Democrats but she replied, "No, I do not." She then listed out a series of examples of harsh political rhetoric from the right. "We have a president who says, ´I could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and
Because one Republican has dared to answer back to Democrat smears, she says the GOP is to blame. These people are psychos. They´re so used to getting away with saying and doing whatever they want, they think anyone standing up to them is automatically evil.
If there has ever been violence either public against government, or Government against public, you people have been there fomenting it, justifying it, promoting it, provided it was to your advantage. Were the Diamond Shooter a right-wing-wacko, you would be using him to justify eliminating everyone who disagreed wit you.
Look - Nancy knows what she is saying is utter BS. The media knows it too, as do we who look at reality with some measure of a logical thought process. But Nancy, with the full cooperation of media, is saying her words to the great masses who are ideologically motivated to WANT to hear what she and others of the Left will tell them. And in that they have been remarkably successful in their violence prone messages, they have no choice but to continue the subtle urging of even more violence. But now they are (successfully?) wrapping the cause and blame for the violence in GOPism. That´s just rich, but there are a lot of believers. That´s who she is talking to.
President Trump and all of us who support him continue to have faith that he and AG Sessions will seize control of the left´s violent behavior, and I THINK we still have faith that at least a few Republicans in congress will stand up for our president, but if they don´t do it soon, I fear for the survival of the country.
I used to be sad, contemplating the future God has in store for the liars and deceivers of this world. I no longer am sad about it, I look forward to God´s justice. I loathe people like Pelosi. So corrupted and so willing to brazenly lie to our faces.
How many times have leftists staged the death of a Republican President, Nancy? Nothing changes. These people are our ´leaders´. We should all be very concerned for the future of this country with tyrants like Nancy in charge.
I don´t think I have ever seen a republican riot, burning cars, holding fake bloody heads, a play in NY about a president & spouse assassinated, college professors encouraging riots, fake investigations, not attending inaugurations, encouraging rebellion, taking 3 months for 5 cabinet members to be confirmed, complete lies leaked to the NY Times & WP, family & entire WH staff attacked daily, hearings hearings hearings about nothing. And it´s only June!
The wimps in the Republican Party like Jeb and Mittens need to learn fron Nancy´s example. Never admit your wrong, always villify the opposition as morally abhorrent. Never yield. Schumer does it, Schiff, Reid, Hillary. Trump used their playbook, added his twist ti it and won everything. I loathe Nancy, but i acknowledge her relentless drive to get what she wants. Man up boys!
#18- President Trump needs and deserves prayers and support as he courageously endures the egregious insanity of Never-Trumpers. Being quite along in years, faith has made comfortable the conviction that if a believer knows what is right between self AND God, not to be afraid of what others may think. Acts of decency and kindness such as prayers offered on behalf of someone in need are not wrong—if anything, such heartfelt beneficence would very likely be considered a blessing and treasured by the recipient.

Now what Nannie? It seems your charming Hillaary has decided the Russians did not cause her to loose after all. Oh My! Now she is blaming the National Democratic --DNC--. Is she now afraid the next violence will target her her and only the Trump people can keep her alive? If I was her I would fear you more than Trump... Could she be trying to seek protection?
U.S. investigators wiretapped President Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to a report by CNN that vindicates the president’s earlier claims, which were mocked as a conspiracy theory. President Trump had tweeted on March 4: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” (Tweet) Breitbart News editor Joel Pollak had reported the day before Trump’s tweet that the Obama administration “sought, and eventually obtained, authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign: continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found.” Trump’s claim,
Laura Ingraham will host a new weeknight primetime show on FOX News Channel from Washington D.C. starting on Oct. 30 at 10 p.m. ET, with “Hannity” and “The Five” shifting timeslots in the process. “We are delighted to unveil this new primetime schedule for both our current and future generation of loyal FNC fans. Over the last decade, Laura’s extraordinary insight, expertise and strong voice have connected with our viewers across the network’s programming,” FOX News programming President Suzanne Scott said. “We look forward to her providing the audience with her exceptional commentary, engaging insight and spirited debate.” While “The
Donald Trump Jr. is seeking greater privacy and has decided to eliminate Secret Service protection, effective starting last week. A separate report indicated White House counselor Kellyanne Conway also chose to end her Secret Service protection. The Trump family has received criticism for having the Secret Service accompany the many members of the family, who are using funds from taxpayers to accommodate the security costs. Additionally, due to the number of Trump family members needing protection, the Secret Service requires the agency to alternate shift agents, preventing the agents from working on criminal cases and investigations and forcing them to
President Trump´s trip to France for the country´s Bastille Day parade in July left a big impression. So big, in fact, that he wants to replicate the experience back home. As Trump met Monday with French President Emmanuel Macron, the commander in chief gushed about seeing France´s military might on display in the streets of Paris during his visit. And he told reporters he is looking into the possibility of having a parade down the streets of Washington on Independence Day to show the United States´ “military strength.” “I was your guest at Bastille Day, and it was one of
Liberal Brown University is set to offer segregated dinners for black and Muslim students on the tail of recent Antifa protests that have turned violent over the last few months. Purporting to offer “racial reconciliation,” Brown administrators took a $300,000 grant from the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) to “break down racial hierarchies and create a positive narrative about race in the community,” the College Fix reported. The money was supplied by donations by liberal organizations such as the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and Newman’s Own Foundation. There will be two separate segregated “dinner discussion groups,” one for African
A plastic surgeon in New York City says business is booming with a subset of clients — women who want to look like Ivanka Trump. Specific botox, cheek implants, and rhinoplasty procedures designed to make a woman look like President Trump’s eldest daughter have kept Dr. Norman Rowe busy once a week since last summer. The surgeon said over the weekend that he is amazed at the popularity of two procedures; one involves “temporary fillers” with a $30,000 to $40,000 price tag, while the “Permanent Ivanka” tallies $45,000 to $50,000. “Since the summer of ‘16 … [it’s been] maybe four
Jedediah Bila shocked audiences when she departed “The View” on Monday — and according to a source, this sudden departure may have something to do with Hillary Clinton. Clinton was on the show last Wednesday promoting her book “What Happened,” with conservative Bila calling her “tone deaf” and asking the former presidential candidate a tough question. “To be fair, it hasn’t just been Republicans who have taken issue with the writing of this book. Some Democrats have come out as well,” Bila said to Clinton. “Former campaign surrogates of yours, former fundraisers and said, ‘This book puts us in the
It is important for political travelers deep in the weeds to reference and recognize patterns that encompass significant geopolitical events. Businessman Donald Trump has, as a natural disposition of his approach, always maintain a specific engagement pattern of respect toward his adversaries; he carries this same approach into the diplomatic role of the presidency. Tomorrow President Trump will be speaking to the U.N. General Assembly. There is a great deal of anticipatory media reporting circling how international community are evaluating the administration; and how President Trump will outline the “Trump Doctrine”.
Six Californian recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals´ protections sued the Trump administration on Monday to block the repeal of the controversial immigration program. The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, alleges that President Donald Trump´s decision to terminate the program "was motivated by unconstitutional bias against Mexicans and Latinos," the Los Angeles Times reports. DACA protects certain illegal immigrants who came to the United States as minors. Implemented by the Obama administration through executive order, the program declines to prosecute or deport its
A number of celebrities attending the 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards wore ribbons to express support for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has fought vigorously against President Donald Trump’s immigration agenda. Since Trump’s inauguration in January, the ACLU has filed a number of legal challenges to Trump’s policies, including against his policies on immigration and the ban on transgender members of the military. Over the years, the organization has also become known for its staunch protection of illegal aliens, filing multiple lawsuits against local authorities for upholding federal law. The organization has also become known for its environmental
The Emmys are becoming a tougher sell for viewers. For another year, initial ratings for the TV awards are down — this time slipping to an all-time low. Adjustments could put the total audience ahead of the previous year´s low, but the 8.2 overnight rating among metered market households is down another 2 percent from the previous year. That means that the final tally for the 2017 Emmys, hosted by Stephen Colbert on CBS, is on track to slip below the 11.3 million viewers (and a mere 2.8 rating among adults 18-49) that tuned in during 2016. Overnight ratings are naturally below those of NBC's Sunday Night Football,
MSNBC host Katy Tur is granting interviews to promote her book Unbelievable on being a political correspondent on the Trump campaign, and that included an hour-long softball session on NPR´s Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Tur claimed she doesn´t vote because "I don´t have a horse in the race." Earth to Miss Tur: When you host a daily program on MSNBC and received adulatory hour-long interviews on NPR, the public can guess which side you´re on. This pose was first notably struck by Leonard Downie when he was the executive editor of The Washington Post. After all, when you're a powerful journalist that can make national
Hillary Clinton told host Terry Gross on NPR’s “Fresh Air” Monday that she may challenge the results of the 2016 presidential election. “No, I wouldn’t rule it out,” Hillary said in a response to a question asking if she would “rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election.” Clinton stated that she believes the Russian government influenced the election in favor of Trump, and that this could make the outcome illegitimate. “[Trump knew] they were trying to do whatever they could to discredit me with emails, so there’s obviously a trail there… There’s no doubt they influenced the election: We now know more
A Texas woman has been getting ridiculed online for being “too sensitive” after she blasted the arts-and-crafts chain Hobby Lobby for selling faux raw cotton stalks — which she found offensive. “This decor is WRONG on SO many levels,” Daniell Rider posted on Facebook this past Thursday, along with a photo of the phony textile plants. “There is nothing decorative about raw cotton…A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves,” she said. “A little sensitivity goes a long way. PLEASE REMOVE THIS ‘decor.´” Rider, who is black, appeared to take the picture of the cotton herself
Poor Dana Milbank. For all of his life he has been the picture of perfect health. And then Donald Trump was elected President and completely ruined it to the point where he is now dying. Milbank discusses his health crises in his September 15 Washington Post column, President Trump is killing me. Really. President Trump is killing me. No, really. He’s killing me. It wasn´t one of his campaign promises but we´ll take it. I went for my annual physical last month, and, for the first time in my 49 years, I had to report that I’ve not been feeling
Georgia Tech police shot dead a barefoot student carrying a knife late on Saturday night. The student, 21-year-old Scout Schultz, who identified as gender non-binary, was seen walking toward police - who issued several warnings to drop what officers believed was a knife. The tense encounter was caught on camera - in which the student can be seen walking closer and closer to the police officers and shouting ´shoot me.´ (Snip) At Georgia Tech, Schultz was president of the school´s Pride Alliance, which is a student organization for LGBTQ students and allies. Schultz preferred ´they´ and ´them´ gender pronouns and identified
The 2017 Emmys Awards ceremony wasted no time getting political during Sunday’s opening segment, as host Stephen Colbert and friends made political jokes within the very first minute — and Colbert quickly accused President Trump of treason. Before his opening song, host Stephen Colbert chatted with Anthony Anderson and Allison Janney, and she complained about the current state of the world. The “Mom” actress mentioned global warming and fighting leaders, and joked that HBO was bringing back “the Confederacy,” a reference to the flap over HBO’s planned new drama series “Confederate.” Moments later, Colbert sang about the virtues of television,
The Big Idea: If I had to stock Hillary Clinton’s new memoir in a bookstore, I’d be tempted to place it in a section on self-help or bereavement. “What Happened” was quickly strip-mined for political nuggets after its publication last Tuesday. As I went through it over the weekend, though, what struck me most was how the wounded Democrat coped after her crushing defeat last November. In short, Clinton has read voraciously and eclectically — for escape, for solace and for answers. The collection of works that she cites across 494 pages showcases a top-flight intellect and would make for a compelling graduate school seminar.
ST. LOUIS -- Protests turned violent for second night near St. Louis following the acquittal of a white former police officer in the fatal shooting of a black man, as a small group of demonstrators refused to disperse, breaking windows at dozens of businesses and throwing objects at police, who moved in with hundreds of officers in riot gear to make arrests. The confrontation took place late Saturday night in the Delmar Loop area of University City, a suburb about 10 miles (16 kilometers) west of St. Louis near Washington University. The area is known for concert venues, restaurants, shops and
People who claim to be shocked that Donald Trump is prepared to make an amnesty deal for the"Dreamers" -- most of whom are Mexicans who entered the USA at around the age of six -- are being more than a tad disingenuous. The president has been hinting as much for over a year to anyone paying attention. In fact, it´s hard to conceive how he could have done otherwise, considering the (excuse the cliché) "optics" of shipping 800,000 young people back to a homeland they may never have seen. The question is what your definition of amnesty is. It´s a
Yes, you read the headline correctly. In the latest example of identity politics taken to its absurd end, three Australian college professors believe that "Playful urination practices – from seeing how high you can pee to games such as Peeball (where men compete using their urine to destroy a ball placed in a urinal) – may give boys an advantage over girls when it comes to physics." The three professors didn´t publish their thoughts on a satirical website like The Onion. Instead, they published on Tes, a website that provides "Educational materials, jobs, news, and courses from the world´s best community
Hillary Clinton rejects the idea that a June 2016 meeting between her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch critically damaged her White House bid. “I just don’t buy that,” Clinton said in a PBS interview aired Friday evening to promote her new book, “What Happened,” about her loss last year to Donald Trump. As Clinton has in several other, recent interviews promoting the book, she heaped much of the blame on then-FBI Director James Comey. Comey led the Justice Department investigation into Clinton’s use of private email servers as secretary of state, after Lynch stepped back
Union — A violent brawl over the weekend between two couples at a local Walmart was captured on video showing punches being exchanged as children watched and attempted to intervene. The video appears to show the two couples fighting Saturday near the jewelry section in the store on Springfield Road in Union. (Snip) The two men can be seen exchanging blows as the two women brawl at the same time. A third woman can be seen attempting to break up the fight between the two women with two young children also trying to intervene. Dozens of customers looked on at the ensuing
The star of HBO´s Insecure proudly spoke about her support for black nominees at the Emmys last night in an awards ceremony that had historic wins for minority stars. ´I´m rooting for everybody black,´ Issa Rae said from the red carpet. ´I am!´ The 32-year-old actress and writer also praised the number of African-Americans recognized for their talents in the TV industry. (Snip) During his speech for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy, he said: ´I want to thank Trump for making black people number one on the most oppressed list. He´s the reason I am probably up here.´
