WASHINGTON – Reacting to the shooting of House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) on Wednesday, Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) said it would be “good” if both parties could agree on ways to restrict access to guns for “deranged people” from “all over the country and all over the political spectrum.” (Snip) The congressman said he thinks the current political climate “all started with President Obama being an African-American.” “I just think that was the beginning, and now with the current occupant of the White House, I just hope that maybe he will see this as an opportunity to change some
Comments: Wow! That just takes my breath away. And this is from a Republican! What a stupid, pathetic, outrageous thing to say when tensions are ready to explode in this country. Stupid party doesn´t even begin to describe this. Once again a Republican hands a big fat gift to the Democrats that they and their buddies in the media will be sure to use as a cudgel to beat them over the heads with in the future. I can´t believe he has a ´C´ rating from Conservative Review. That statement should earn him an ´F.´
Contd. No Republican ever uttered a word about Obama as horrific as the Democrats have about Trump or Republicans. Of course the Democrats take absolutely NO responsibility for or even acknowledge the hatred, invectives, extreme violence and rhetoric from the left. That of course was all fomented and encouraged by none other than Barack Hussein Obama and it has done nothing but escalate.
I am absolutely stunned. Just when you think they can´t do or say anything worse you see this. I´m getting whiplash from shaking my head.
The true political demonization began with how they characterized Goldwater as unhinged and racist. Then continued with Reagan. To this day, the Left continues to dehumanize their opponents to deligitimize them.
Many did resent Obama because of his race, but it was never put into play by the GOP; however, every time some wingnut went off on Obama´s race, it was hung around the GOP like an albatross. Dems, of course, get a pass when a "progressive" goes off the reservation.
It started long before then. It is remembered when HRC came out with this during the Bush administration, Hillary Clinton angrily lamented: "I´m sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you´re not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we´re Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration."
A more hateful old biddy would be hard to find. The subsequent Barack just built on the foundation laid. "Our ´folks´ should get in their face" "They bring a knife; we bring a gun"
I don´t think the One World Uniparty has considered just who is standing by to pick up the pieces of the Nations they are destroying. We will deserve it as much as they do, but I´d advise against quietly boarding "Free Transportation To A Rejuvenating Spa Experience".
In my opinion the hatred in the political climate was given a big boost by WHO Obama was, not what color he was. He tried to divide this country in so many ways and created untold "victims". Had we elected someone such as Dr. Ben Carson our country would be totally different today.
What malarkey!! What unmitigated drivel and lies!!
I would have welcomed a candidate, who was black, or any non-European if they had half the compassion and dedication of MLK, or at least wanted to continue his dream.
But instead we got a man trained in agi-prop, of doubtful origins - a communist trained friend of a domestic terrorist who was promoted as the second coming of Jesus Christ!!
Resentment and hatred started prior to the Civil War and the Democrats haven´t let go of it since!! The only thing they´ve done is seek camouflage as they continue to attempt to take control of everyone elses lives and rule them like the unrepentant tyrants they are!
Jones can go to hell! I certainly wish he´d leave the party with an attitude like that! What a mealy-mouthed whiner he is.
It started gearing up when the left were calling Reagan an "affable dunce." It´s only gotten worse from there. The left has no decency, and those who claim to be fighting for our liberty and rights have no brains.
Only a wimpy Republican or a liberal Democrat black socialist would make such a comment. The reason that "stupid party" elected politicians say such things is that they are scared to death that the liberal Democrats will play the race card against them.
MSNBC is giving a show to conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt and liberals are predictably freaking out. The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday explained that Hewitt’s first show will air on Saturday, June 24. Writer Jeremy Barr added, “In giving Hewitt his own show, MSNBC is sure to raise eyebrows, considering that the network has been doing well mostly on the strength of left-leaning opinion journalists like Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O´Donnell.” The move will "raise eyebrows?" That’s an understatement. Liberals on Twitter are already attacking the cable network for hiring a “fascist.” It was just last week that Avengers movie
Did Senate Republicans really need to spend a month behind closed doors, incurring the ire of the American people, just to copy and paste Obamacare? (Snip) There will be tremendous acrimony between the two parties in the ensuing days over Obamacare, because they both need to play to their constituencies and continue the binary fight club racket reminiscent of WWE. However, in reality, nobody is repealing Obamacare, nobody is addressing the core health care issues in America, and nobody is offering a vision of freedom, prosperity, and a solvent health care and health insurance market. Everything is working within the
Former “Crossfire” co-host and CNN political pundit Paul Begala praised Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on “Anderson Cooper 360” Wednesday, saying, “If there was a Mount Rushmore for house speakers, Nancy Pelosi would be on it.” Begala continued lauding Pelosi, comparing her to former President Franklin D. Roosevelt. “She passed national healthcare,” Begala said. “Even Franklin Roosevelt could not do that.” Begala cited her unpopularity ratings at 50 percent, proclaiming that they are lower than House Speaker Paul Ryan’s unpopularity ratings at 54 percent. Begala then said it is high time that Democrats go on the offensive and take the
In March, California’s Attorney General slapped David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, with a whopping fifteen felony charges. Daleiden and Merritt, by way of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), released several horrifying undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood officials negotiating the price of aborted baby parts. (Snip) Wednesday, San Francisco’s Superior Court dismissed the first fourteen charges against Merritt, finding them legally insufficient. Life News reports: The San Francisco Superior Court on Wednesday dismissed 14 of 15 criminal counts but the pair are still charged with one count of conspiracy to invade privacy. However the court dismissed the charges with leave to amend —
An open borders organization is working to train immigration lawyers to deal with the increased number of illegal immigrants facing deportation under President Trump. The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) has launched the “Immigration Justice Campaign” to quickly get more attorneys familiar with immigration law to stop the flow of deportations. In a news release touting the training effort, AILA called illegal immigrants facing deportation a “representation crisis” and said they would train more attorneys to be “cutting-edge defenders” in helping get temporary amnesty for illegal immigrants:
There was a time when White House reporters did their work and didn’t cry like little babies. The men were men and the women were not to be tangled with (Helen Thomas in her prime). But those days are gone. Long gone. The effete David Gregory (remember him?) made his career at NBC by beating up a White House spokesman every day in front of the cameras during the administration of George W. Bush. Mr. Gregory would grandstand and peacock and ask interminably long questions (more camera time, folks!), berating White House spokesman Scott McClellan, who was kept on a
Sen. John McCain, always the political maverick, recently bucked his own Republican Party by refusing to defend President Donald Trump in the Russia investigation and even suggesting the matter was reaching epic proportions. (Snip) There was just one fact missing from his narrative: Exactly one decade earlier it was McCain’s own presidential campaign that was being roiled by concerns of possible Russian influence in his own inner circle. In fact, McCain’s drama involved the same foreign lobbyist Paul Manafort; one of the same Russian oligarchs, Oleg Deripaska; the same Russian diplomat, Sergey Kislyak, and the same wily Russian leader, Vladimir
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., is committed to playing the role of a swaggering anti-President Trump resistance leader, despite that the contrived routine makes her look utterly ridiculous. Even MSNBC´s Mika Brzezinski suggested Wednesday that the senator´s tough-talking bit is a little too on the nose. "You´re quoted all over the place about resisting, pushing back. Even one quote here a week ago, I think, where you used a profanity," the cable news host said. "But the bottom line is we need to fight hard and we´re angry about what´s happening in Washington." Brzezinski continued, saying, "As someone who has spoken
A new proposal by an anti-Trump Democrat on the Federal Election Commission would expand the federal government´s probe into alleged Russian influence to foreign companies and internet sites that take political ads, like Facebook or the Drudge Report, while giving the FEC an unprecedented role that some say oversteps its authority. Democratic Commissioner Ellen Weintraub, citing petitions from leftist groups demanding a wider investigation, on Thursday plans to push for commission support for her idea. "This is an all-hands-on-deck moment for our democracy," she wrote in a hasty bid to get the commission to consider it at their Thursday meeting.
A Connecticut college professor has created a firestorm for calling white people “inhuman a-holes” who need to “die” following last week’s shooting attack on congressional Republicans. Trinity College’s Johnny Eric Williams’ social media feed after the June 14 shooting of Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise included racial tirades and commentary calling on minorities to “confront” white people and “end this now,” a reference to an alleged system of “white supremacy.” “It is past time for the racially oppressed to do what people who believe themselves to be ‘white’ will not do, put end to the vectors of their destructive mythology of
Key provisions of the Senate’s ObamaCare repeal bill meant to curb abortion services are in serious danger of being dropped from the legislation, which could cost the bill votes from conservatives. All three provisions, according to aides and lobbyists, are expected to fall short of budgetary rules. Republicans are using budget reconciliation rules to pass the ObamaCare repeal bill in order to prevent Democrats from filibustering it. The problem is that provisions in the healthcare bill must be budget-related to be included in a measure considered under those special rules.
Seventy percent of the general public agrees that news organizations "are subject to partisan agendas," with 85 percent of Republicans believing the news media is influenced by funding, according to a Wednesday YouGov poll. "The rise of fake news, a growing multitude of media sources, and an increasingly polarized nation have Americans learning to take their headlines with a grain of salt," says the YouGov study. The research also shows that seven in 10 Americans agree that news organizations report stories in a way that´s favorable to their owners. Not surprisingly, the poll differs along party lines, with 52 percent
Turns out…money can’t buy you love. Or a House seat in Georgia’s 6th District. Democrats pulled out all stops in their effort to show that the #Resistance isn’t just about marches and slogans and insulting the president, but also about flipping the House in 2018. They poured tens of millions of dollars into what became the most expensive House race ever, trying to elect 30-year-old nonentity Jon Ossoff to fill the seat of HHS head Tom Price. They cast the race as a referendum on Donald Trump, and a bellwether for 2018. Republicans will be elated with the outcome, and hopeful
On June 8, Lisa Durden, a producer, filmmaker and media commentator, arrived at Essex County College in Newark to teach her speech class. It was the closing days of the summer session and Durden was already set for the fall semester. She was listed as a returning adjunct professor to teach mass communication and popular culture and two effective speech courses. Two days before, she had appeared as a political commentator on the Fox News show "Tucker Carlson Tonight," invited to give her opinion as to why Black Lives Matter organizers held a Memorial Day event in Brooklyn for black people only. When
MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- Video of a woman demanding for her son to be seen by a "white doctor" at a walk-in clinic in Ontario has gone viral. CTV Toronto reports the four-minute argument was recorded by a patient in the waiting room at the Rapid Access to Medical Specialists clinic on Sunday. In the video, an employee is heard explaining to the woman that a "white doctor" would not be available until 4 p.m. to see her child. To which she responds, "So you´re saying in the whole entire building there isn´t one white doctor? You´re telling me my kid has chest
Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District unexpectedly showed up in droves. Pollsters say sky-high turnout drove Handel, the GOP nominee, to a nearly 4-point victory on Tuesday, despite most pre-election surveys showing Ossoff with a small-but-shrinking lead. Mathematically, a 4-point loss for a Democratic House candidate in a district that has traditionally elected Republicans by wide margins is an encouraging result for
(Facebook) - Former President Barack Obama took to Facebook to ask Republicans to reconsider their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. "I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party," Obama wrote. "Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did." He argued that the Republican health care bill
A city on Mars with a million inhabitants could be achievable within 50 years, the space entrepreneur Elon Musk has forecast, as he laid out plans to turn mankind into a multi-planetary species. The SpaceX founder warned that humans would need to venture away from Earth to avoid a ‘Doomsday event’ and our ‘eventual extinction.’ But he said that a huge Martian city could be established this century, which would not just be an outpost, but a fully functioning society with ‘iron foundries and pizza joints.’
Ed Morrissey may be on vacation but he’s still keeping his ear to the door of American politics. He popped up on Twitter this morning, searching for his dictionary to look up the definition of “chutzpah.” The reason for his apparent confusion was a rather off-putting interview with Georgia-06 Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff conducted by NPR’s Rachel Martin. The subject of the massive, record-breaking amount of cash dumped into this race couldn’t be avoided, so Martin asked Ossoff to weigh in. He did so, but his take on the subject rang a bit hollow to say the least. (Emphasis added
As a resident of Hollywood, CA, I didn´t exactly see crying in the streets, but I did "feel their pain," as the saying goes. According to (where else?) Variety, the local entertainment industry went in big time in support of Jon Ossoff, the jejune sometime documentarian, in his quest to win the election in Georgia´s sixth congressional district. Rosie O’Donnell [ je suis shockay], Jane Fonda, Jessica Lange, Sean Daniel, Connie Britton, Sam Waterston and Kyra Sedgwick are among those who have donated to Democrat Jon Ossoff’s campaign, while others have been participating in phone banks to get out the vote and
Despite receiving an invitation to meet with President Trump, members of the Congressional Black Caucus have reportedly chosen to decline, per Politico. Both Trump and the Congressional Black Caucus met in March to discuss issues important to CBC members, yet many in the Caucus felt as if little to no progress has been made since that meeting three months ago and that any subsequent meeting would be merely lip service. One Democratic aide illustrated the thinking of some in the Congressional Black Caucus saying, “No one wants to be a co-star on the reality show.” Former “Apprentice” star Omarosa Manigault,
In a year that he would like to forget, which included his acrimonious divorce to Amber Heard, Johnny Depp appeared at a Q&A at the new Cinemageddon stage at Glastonbury. Introducing his 2004 film The Libertine, about a 17th-century poet who notoriously drank himself to an early death, the 54-year-old chose to discuss American politics. "I think [Donald] Trump needs help," he said. "There are a lot of dark places he could go." He added: "I´m not insinuating anything - by the way this will be in the press and it will be horrible - but when was the last
SANDY SPRINGS, Georgia—After $50 million and a congressional contest bigger than some presidential primaries, the special election in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District to replace Rep. Tom Price ended up where it began, with the Republican House seat still in Republican hands and national Democrats still looking for a way to turn the resistance to Donald Trump into a victory at the polls. (Snip) On the Democratic side, the combined efforts of the Ossoff campaign, the DNC, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee help build a monster operation unprecedented in Georgia Democratic politics. By the end of the race, they had
Illinois is like Venezuela now, a fiscally broken state that has lost its will to live, although for the moment, we still have enough toilet paper. But before we run out of the essentials, let´s finally admit that after decade upon decade of taxing and spending and borrowing, Illinois has finally run out of other people´s money. Those "other people" include taxpayers who´ve abandoned the state. And now Illinois faces doomsday. So as the politicians meet in Springfield this week for another round of posturing and gesturing and blaming, we need a plan.
