Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal hoped for the assassination of President Trump in a Facebook comment on Thursday then deleted it in a panic. She even acknowledged she would get a visit from the Secret Service for her comment. (Photo) Maria Chappelle-Nadal’s Facebook comment was so egregious that even ABC News reported on the story. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports: Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, posted a comment in a Facebook conversation Thursday morning saying she hoped President Donald Trump will be assassinated. The comment was removed but Chappelle-Nadal confirmed to the Post-Dispatch that she had written it in
Very difficult to believe that people making statements like this don´t lose their office. When you advocate for the assassination of a public official, it is not a "mistake." Using ambiguous terms, or inadvertently choosing the wrong word to express a sentiment, is a mistake. Calling for the death of the President of the United States is only a mistake in the context of violating the law and ruining (losing) your career as a politician. It´s not akin to accidentally picking up a colleagues cup of coffee and drinking from it instead of your own. She formulated the thought and it was sincere enough that she put it in writing and posted it; that does not meet the definition of a mistake. Again, hard to believe she´s not removed through some process; well, in these times, I guess it´s not hard to believe.
Hey, anyone remember when Trent Lott made one stupid comment about Strom Thurmond on his birthday and had to resign his leadership position, go on BET and grovel, justify virtually every breath he had ever taken, and ended up resigning from the Senate?
Cheppelle-Nadal called for actual violence and DEATH to the POTUS, dug in her heels and tried to justify her remarks based on her "fear," refused to apologize for a couple of weeks, and still shows no sign of resigning.
"Chappelle-Nadal said her judge and her jury is my Lord Jesus Christ."
Don´t let democrats play this card. Don´t let them boo God in their party platform, don´t let them support infanticide all day everyday, and then, when they get into trouble through some egregious act that reveals their Godlessness, use your belief in the Deity against you.
Because that´s what she´s doing.
"You can´t judge me. That´s God´s job".
That doesn´t stop democrats from judging Americans and destroying them if they don´t toe the party line from business leaders (Mozilla) to coders (Google) to bakers.
It just stops you from defending yourself from democrat party "progress".
People who can verbalize an assassination threat on the President must face the consequences of their actions. As a Senator, she of all people should know better especially in this climate. It´s time to hold people accountable for such willful and dangerous threats. With such a lack of discernment as to what is acceptable behavior by a sitting Senator no less, she has no business representing anyone. She does not have the temperament for it let alone the moral integrity.
If she was a republican every republican in this country would immediately have a microphone shoved in their face and be forced to comment on what she said. I have not seen one democrat asked to comment on what this woman said.
Maria should be greatful that her ancestors were brought to America in a past era hundreds of years ago thus giving her the opportunity to be born in and to become a citizen of the USA. As if that had not happened and she were alive today, chances are she would have been born in some primitive African country that is being run by a brutal dictator. If Maria had publically stated that she wished that dictator dead, there is a good chance that she would either have been murdered already, or she would be rushing to get into either Europe or the USA as either an immigrant or refugee as most other black people in Africa are now trying to do. Maria needs to make a serious evaluation of her politics.
The concluding passages of President Donald Trump’s address to the U.N. General Assembly sought to define and defend patriotism—not only for Americans, although naturally his focus was on the patriotic history of his own country. Trump called for a revival of patriotic spirit around the world, in the process delivering a backhanded slap to globalism without calling it out by name. Trump began by saying a bright future for the world demands “strong, sovereign, and independent nations,” defining them as nations “rooted in their histories and invested in their destinies,” seeking “allies to befriend, not enemies to conquer,” and “most
Hillary Clinton walked back her controversial comments on Tuesday after floating the idea of the possibility of contesting the 2016 election in wake of mounting evidence showing Russian interference. “I think no one, including me, is saying we will contest the election,” Clinton clarified speaking at a Mic roundtable in New York on Tuesday. ”I´m in the very large group of people who believe that, you know, there’s no legal basis, no constitutional basis for that." The former first lady´s comments come a day after she told NPR that she "wouldn’t rule it out” when asked if she´d consider questioning
Early results from a Brookings Institution study on the First Amendment’s standing among college students foreshadow an ominous future for free speech rights. University of California at Los Angeles professor and Brookings senior fellow John Villasenor released preliminary findings this week on the free exchange of ideas at universities. The scholar said his poll of 1,500 current undergraduate students at U.S. four-year colleges and universities was so “disturbing” that he wanted to “get some of the key results out into the public sphere immediately.” “Freedom of expression is deeply imperiled on U.S. campuses,” the professor said Monday. “In fact, despite protestations
Hillary Clinton late Tuesday tore into President Trump´s "very dark" and "dangerous" speech at the United Nations General Assembly earlier in the day, arguing he took the wrong tact in condemning North Korea´s nuclear pursuits. "When you face dangerous situations like what is happening in North Korea, to make it clear, your first approach should always be diplomatic," Clinton said during an appearance on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert." The former Democratic presidential nominee and secretary of State said she wished Trump had stressed diplomacy in his speech before global leaders at the U.N. headquarters earlier Tuesday in New
From the moment President Trump’s Tuesday speech to the United Nations General Assembly ended, CNN made clear that they would be providing the liberal, pro-Obama response, lambasting his remarks as contradictory, “dark,” “frightening,” “incoherent” and even weak. Now, if you’re skeptical that this video supercut included only partisan commentators, that sadly did not happen as the same rhetoric was espoused by supposedly neutral analysts, anchors, and reporters. (Video) Former Obama administration official and CNN senior diplomatic and military analyst John Kirby stepped up moments after the speech concluded, whining that “this wasn’t a speech” but instead “a sermon and he
Families and advocates for Americans imprisoned in Iran applauded President Trump for demanding the release of all U.S. prisoners and others unjustly detained in Tehran during his speech to the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday. Family members of Siamak and Baquer Namazi, a father and son who are being held in Iran´s notorious Evin prison, also urged Trump to take urgent action to try to secure their release. They warned that 81-year-old Baquer Namazi´s life is hanging in the balance after he underwent heart surgery to install a pacemaker just hours before Trump spoke. During Trump´s speech to the United
NEW YORK- Bill O´Reilly said Tuesday that his firing from Fox News Channel in April was a "political hit job" and that his network´s parent company made a business decision to get rid of him. The deposed king of cable television news had a contentious interview with Matt Lauer on NBC´s "Today" show, where he said his conscience was clear about how he dealt with women in the working world. O´Reilly was dismissed by 21st Century Fox following a review prompted by a report in The New York Times that five women had been paid a total of $13 million
Senators on Tuesday left town for the rest of the week with no plan on when to bring up a bill Republicans deemed the last shot to overhaul Obamacare. Republican leaders are trying to pin down if they have enough votes to pass an Obamacare overhaul bill, but lawmakers recessed for the rest of the week and are expected to return Monday. The GOP is under a major time crunch because it has to pass the legislation before midnight Sept. 30, when a tool that would allow the bill to be approved with a simple majority instead of the 60
BELLEVILLE, Ill.– Every player on the Cahokia Quarterback Club football team (8 and under) took a knee during the national anthem ahead of Sunday’s game at Little Devil’s Field in Belleville. “One of the kids asked me if I saw (people) protesting and rioting in St. Louis. I said yes; I said, ‘Do you know why they are doing it?´” said Coach Orlando Gooden. Coach Gooden said his player responded, "Because black people are getting killed and nobody´s going to jail.” Gooden, who played football at Mizzou, said the kids knew about the Jason Stockley decision. “I felt like it
CNN reported Monday that Obama’s FBI indeed wiretapped Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort before, during and after the 2016 presidential election. CNN is even admitting that Trump himself may have been caught up in the surveillance. This CNN report ended up as a screaming headline on the Drudge Report. (Photo) Paul Manafort was wiretapped during the 2016 election. The Obama FBI used a secret court order to wiretap Manafort. Manafort’s spokesperson Jason Maloni is now calling for the DOJ Inspector General to investigate the classified FISA warrant leak in a strongly worded statement released Tuesday.

Despite his increasingly strong rhetoric toward North Korea, President Donald Trump once promised his former national security aid Sebastian Gorka that he did not want to go to war over the Korean peninsula. “People need to take that to heart,” Gorka told FOX Business’ Trish Regan on ‘The Intelligence Report’ on Tuesday. “Nevertheless, if you threaten us, if you threaten our territory with nuclear weapons, with ballistic missiles, look at that team he’s got. Secretary [of Defense James] Mattis is not going to take that lying down.” Gorka, the former national security aid for Trump, departed the White House at
At least 49 people are dead after a 7.1-magnitude earthquake hit Mexico leaving buildings shaking and sending people fleeing into the street. The tremor hit just hours after emergency drills around the nation on the anniversary of another devastating quake that killed thousands in Mexico City in 1985. Today´s quake hit near the Puebla state town of Raboso, about 76 miles southeast of Mexico City, at a depth of 32 miles, the US Geological Survey said. Horrifying images coming out of the country´s capital show rubble strewn across roads and enormous chunks of collapsed buildings laying on the ground with
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
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
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.
Climate change poses less of an immediate threat to the planet than previously thought because scientists got their modelling wrong, a new study has found. New research by British scientists reveals the world is being polluted and warming up less quickly than 10-year-old forecasts predicted, giving countries more time to get a grip on their carbon output. (Snip) The discrepancy means nations could continue emitting carbon dioxide at the current rate for another 20 years before the target was breached, instead of the three to five predicted by the previous model. “When you are talking about a budget of 1.5
Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” while reacting to President Donald Trump’s speech at United Nations, former White House press secretary for the Obama administration Josh Earnest said the overall speech lacked “coherence,” and Trump mocking North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un was “foolish.” Earnest said, “Having sat in the hall of the United Nations where the president of the United States delivers an address for gathered world leaders — that’s something I did for the last three years—what you know world leaders are looking for in that room is a coherent strategy for taking on the biggest challenges around the
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
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
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,
President Trump disturbed some in the press after vowing in his United Nations speech to "destroy" North Korea should the country attack the U.S. In his speech, Trump referred to North Korean President Kim Jong Un as "Rocket Man" and said he was on a "suicide mission" in advancing the country´s nuclear weapons development. "The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea," he said. On Twitter, MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell said Trump "threatened to commit a war crime" by threatening North Korea.
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.´
Hillary Clinton on Monday would not rule out the possibility of challenging the results of the 2016 presidential election, saying it’s clear the Russians influenced the outcome and that the legitimacy of President Trump’s victory could be called into question as congressional and independent probes into Russian involvement move forward. (Snip) “I wouldn’t rule it out,” she said, though she quickly admitted there’s virtually no legal path forward, and that challenging election results at this point would be unprecedented. “There are scholars, academics, who have arguments that it would be [possible], but I don’t think they’re on
CHICAGO — “Shrill.” “Grating.” “Like listening to my ex nag me.” “Sounds like my mom yelling at me.” Women in sports broadcasting are used to men criticizing their voices. In my three years in sports radio, I’ve had more men complain about my voice than everything else about me combined — and trust me, there are a lot of other things they don’t like about me. “It has nothing to do with you being a woman,” they tell me, “I just can’t stand the sound of your voice.” For someone who gets paid primarily to say sports words on the radio, listeners hating the sound of
