  • John Kelly’s credibility is at risk after defending aide accused of domestic violence

    02/10/2018 11:45:34 AM PST · by DOC44 · 72 replies
    After the White House staff secretary was accused of domestic violence by both of his ex-wives, Kelly publicly defended Porter as “a man of true integrity and honor,” adding, “I can’t say enough good things about him.” Privately, Kelly reportedly urged him to stay in his job. Kelly’s actions left his critics — as well as some West Wing subordinates — questioning how much credibility he has left.
  • Sessions: We’ll “Leave No Stone Unturned” In Finding The Strzok-Page Texts

    All 50,000 of them? That’s how many texts the FBI apparently “lost” in their retention system during the period of time in which agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page carried on an extramarital affair — and might have injected partisan bias into the probe of Russian interference in the election. The bureau previously turned over 375 messages to congressional investigators, but when the panels asked for a broader range of messages, the FBI discovered that the messages had been deleted. Jeff Sessions pledged to “leave no stone unturned” in getting those texts back, while Donald Trump continued to slam the...

    One year after a Republican accused of sexual misconduct was elected president, and Democrats are the ones in turmoil about misogynistic behavior in their ranks. Renewed media attention on sexual harassment and assault led to the twin New York Times and New Yorker exposés on Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood mogul and Democratic donor. But Democrats did not rally to protect one of their own, and his attempt to curry sympathy with a pledge to fight the NRA fell flat. The subsequent #MeToo phenomenon continues to upend the left-leaning political and media worlds, with accusations of inappropriate behavior ensnaring liberal darling...

    Jeb Bush on Monday joined growing Republicans calls for Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore to step down after Moore allegedly had a sexual encounter with a minor. “This is not a question of innocence or guilt like in a criminal proceeding, this is a question of what’s right and what’s wrong. Acknowledging that you’re dating teenagers when you’re 32 years old as assistant state attorney is wrong. It’s just plain wrong,” the former Republican presidential candidate and Florida governor said during an interview on CNBC. “We need to stand for basic principles, and decency has to be one of...
  • We’re all racist. But racism by white people matters more

    We don’t live in a racially neutral society: from police officers to headteachers, all the gatekeepers in my life have been white. Yet we do have to acknowledge those who feel they lose out to ethnic minorities Most white people don’t see themselves as racist. They can comfortably reel off a list of people of colour they know, like, or maybe even love. They can’t think of a time when they’ve negatively discriminated against someone on the grounds of their race. And they don’t see, in a concrete way, how their own race has positively affected them. More than that,...

    Dear Mr. Speaker: The epidemic of gun violence in our country continues to challenge the conscience of our nation. Today, our nation woke up to news of the worst mass shooting in our history, claiming the lives of at least 58 innocent men and women in Las Vegas. Nearly 12,000 Americans have been killed by guns with 273 mass shootings in 2017 – one for each day of the year. On average, more than 90 Americans lose their lives to gun violence every day, a daily toll of heartbreak and tragedy in communities across America. Congress has a moral duty...

    History is written by the victors. The victors, white people, white supremacists, teach us that America was founded and populated by hard working, adventurous, religious, people. While the majority of people of color see them as genocidal, enslaving, disease ridden (chickenpox, smallpox, gonorrhea, syphilis) irreverent, invaders.

    Howard Dean lumped white supremacists and the GOP together when he warned voters not to vote for racists. "If you want to vote for a racist in the White House, then you better vote for Republicans," the former governor of Vermont said on MSNBC on Saturday. Dean stated that Trump has "no moral character" but added that he is in the minority since "there’s a lot more decent Americans than there are the kind of people who were supporting the folks in Charlottesville." "Today in the 2018 elections, if you vote for a Republican, you’re supporting Donald Trump. This has...

IMHO, this cute little gig, set-up and planned by Democrat, McAuliffe and his buddy Mayor and assistant Mayor in Charlottesville did not go off as planned, because the police were setup to fail with the orders issued by the Governor and his two Mayors. Results, three people murdered, multiple people injured while extreme Right wing & Left wing nutcases tried to kill each other, uncontrolled...

    Lies are as important an ingredient in the ideology of progressives as is h20 in water. Two months ago, a Planned Parenthood pamphlet from 1952 was making the rounds, and everybody was rushing to condemn the organization for it. Here is the pamphlet. Here it is again, and again and again. The last link is the most direct, but at the same time the most problematic. It states at the top "MATTERS OF LIFE AND DEATH". This entirely misses the point and as far as I'm concerned, it's dangerous. If you guys want to attack individual leaves on the tree,...

    In a live interview on today’s Morning Joe, Vicente Fox, the former president of Mexico, explicitly compared President Trump to “Hitler,” and the Republican part to the “Nazi party.” He did so in response to a request for clarification from Willie Geist, who noted that yesterday Fox had said: “when I saw [the] gathering of the Republican party retreat, Trump being there reminded me of Hitler addressing the Nazi party.” Responded Fox: “Just comparing Donald Trump with Hitler and comparing the Republican party with the Nazi party, because they — they don’t seem to have free mind. They don’t have...

    President Barack Obama reaffirmed his belief that change only happens when “ordinary people get involved, get engaged and come together to demand it” during his farewell speech on Tuesday. Addressing thousands of supporters at McCormick Place in Chicago, the same city where he gave his presidential victory speech in 2008, the outgoing president said change was the “beating heart of our American idea — our bold experiment in self-government.” Obama, who cultivated his empowering brand of American politics in Chicago, said the city had taught him that change starts at the grassroots level.

    Aquinas Is Not A Safe Guide For Protestants Reading Aquinas with care and caution. Written by Dewey Roberts | Sunday, October 16, 2016 In his Summa Theologica, Aquinas clearly stated his view that the sacraments perform their work through a virtue in themselves. He also stated unequivocally that the sacraments confer the new birth, justification, the grace of the Holy Spirit, sanctification, inward enlightenment, the washing away of guilt, and forgiveness of sins on every person who partakes of them. From time to time, I come across articles by Reformed authors wherein they encourage the reading of the Summa Theologica...

    BERLIN — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange once again promised the anti-secrecy organization would publish "significant" information involving the U.S. presidential race before the November election — but revealed no details Tuesday. "We are going to need an army to defend us from the pressure that is already starting to arise," Assange said via video link in an event the campaigner said was timed to coincide with the group's 10-year anniversary. He said WikiLeaks aimed to publish previously unreleased material weekly for the next 10 weeks, but did not say exactly what it would be. The organization also declined to say...

    Jimmy Carter says the United States is experiencing a “resurgence of racism” and he’s calling on Baptist faith leaders to foster change in their churches and communities. The former U.S. president spoke Thursday at a summit hosted by the New Baptist Covenant, which he convened in 2007 to unite Baptists of different races, ethnicities and theologies. Carter’s keynote address came during a three-day meeting in Atlanta aimed at creating partnerships between black and white churches to work together on pressing issues in their community...

    Mitt Romney blasted the Republican Party on Saturday for not doing more to stop presumptive nominee Donald Trump, saying that the prospects for the party are bleak. During a discussion in Park City, Utah, where Romney is hosting his annual conservative summit, the 2012 presidential nominee singled out Trump’s former rivals Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio), the last two candidates to drop out of the race against Trump. "Ted Cruz was basically praising Donald Trump through the whole process," Romney told discussion host and CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer. And Kasich “was in well after the time...
