    Franco, 25, sustained a head injury in a featherweight fight in Iowa Saturday. The fight was stopped in the 8th of 10 rounds. He took a blow to the head from Utah’s Jose Haro. Franco was heavily favored in the televised bout but after that punch in the 8th round, officials saw Franco clearly wobbling and stopped the fight. He was taken to the hospital where doctors discovered several brain bleeds. Before the devastating blow, Franco got knocked down in the ring and that can have an affect on a fighter a fellow boxer says. “That weakens you as a...

    Complete Headline: After 24 years working together, Feinstein and Boxer say goodbye to their 'Thelma and Louise' partnership In 1992, Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer pitched themselves to California voters as the dynamic duo, as "Thelma and Louise," as "Cagney and Lacey." They were trying to convince voters to do something no state had ever done: Elect two women to represent them in the U.S. Senate. [Snip] Their different personalities - and governing styles - could have posed a problem. Instead, their contrasts, in many cases, became a strength. [Snip] "They are fire and ice," USC political scientist Dan Schnur...

    Sen. Barbara Boxer of California bid farewell to Congress on Wednesday after 33 years as a liberal champion, choking up as she read a letter from jazz great Sonny Rollins thanking her for "making life beautiful" for the people she's represented. "What he said is all I wanted to do, make life beautiful for people," Boxer said in her farewell speech on the Senate floor. "I didn't always succeed ... I can honestly say that I never stopped trying." Former House colleagues of Boxer including Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco came to the Senate to pay their...

    We’re finally done with Election 2016 and to almost everyone’s surprise the new President-elect does not wear a pantsuit. How did Donald Trump pull off the biggest political upset in modern history? Does anyone really know for sure why and how it happened and how nobody saw it coming? Here are the reasons in my opinion, anyway, in no particular order. The email scandal that continued to dog Hillary finally bit her in the ass completely when FBI director James Comey found the Weiner-grams that linked back to her and her lack of good judgment. Comey ultimately wussed out on...

    Retiring Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, who was an outspoken supporter of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election, is set to introduce a Senate bill that aims to end the Electoral College. Boxer announced in a statement on Tuesday that the bill, which she planned to introduce later Tuesday afternoon, would determine the winner of presidential elections by the outcome of the popular vote. She cited President-elect Donald Trump's victory in the Electoral College despite Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's apparent popular vote advantage. Trump now praises Electoral College, says he could have won popular vote "In my lifetime, I have seen...

    Newly released emails on the Benghazi terror attack suggest a senior White House aide played a central role in preparing former U.N. ambassador Susan Rice for her controversial Sunday show appearances -- where she wrongly blamed protests over an Internet video. More than 100 pages of documents were released to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. Among them was a Sept. 14, 2012, email from Ben Rhodes, an assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for strategic communications. The Rhodes email, with the subject line: "RE: PREP Call with...
  • Video suggests Barbara Boxer really wasn't afraid of Sanders supporters

    A video has surfaced that is putting doubt on Senator Barbara Boxer’s claims that she feared for her safety while at the Nevada State Convention. During her contentious speech, Sanders delegates loudly booed her as she stood defiantly at the podium. Her response to Sanders delegates can only be described as arrogant. A video of that verbal assault has already circulated the internet. Not until five days after the convention did another video go viral: A video of Boxer walking casually from the podium, blowing sarcastic kisses to the Sanders delegates. As the video ends. Boxer throws up her left...

    Tensions were high at the Democratic convention in Nevada Saturday, with Bernie Sanders supporters demanding delegate recounts, booing Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and causing other disruptions, according to local media reports. Sanders supporters were angry over a voice vote that adopted a set of temporary convention rules as the permanent rules, according to the Las Vegas Sun. And supporters also reacted angrily to the count of delegates attending the convention, which put Clinton at an advantage. Final numbers announced later in the day showed 1,693 Clinton supporters in attendance to Sanders's 1,662. Boxer, a Hillary Clinton supporter, said among booing...
  • Barbara Boxer: Carly Fiorina Pick Shows Ted Cruz ‘Has No Judgment Whatsoever’

    04/29/2016 11:06:17 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 53 replies
    Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) criticized Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz for selecting former Hewlett-Packard executive Carly Fiorina as his running mate, arguing the pick shows the Texas senator has “no judgment whatsoever.” Fiorina challenged Boxer for her Senate seat in 2010, and lost the election by 10 points. Boxer effectively used Fiorina’s HP tenure against her, criticizing the former CEO for laying off thousands at the California-based company and moving many jobs overseas. The failed Senate campaign loomed large over Fiorina’s foray into the 2016 presidential race, which ended shortly after underwhelming performances in the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire...

    Dear Senators Boxer and Feinstein, You say something to the effect that abortion is such an important "right" that nothing must be allowed to interfere with it or threaten it. Not even the "inconvenient" fact that sixty-four percent (64%) of women in a 217 member population sample "felt pressured by others" to get abortions.  Induced abortion and traumatic stress: A preliminary comparison of American and Russian women. Vincent M. Rue et al. Med Sci Monit, 2004; 10(10): SR5-16 Since you feel that we shouldn't be discussing topics that work against universal abortion, like forced abortion in China, what would...
  • Boxer: California has proven that 'sensible gun laws work'

    Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) pointed to gun laws in her home state as evidence that commonsense reforms can prevent mass shootings. "The fact is, sensible gun laws work, we've proven it in California, and we're not going to give up," the senator said in a press conference on Thursday. Boxer's comments come a day after the mass shooting in San Bernardino, Calif., in which 14 people were killed and 21 injured. Boxer said California has passed several gun regulations since the 1990s, which she said have contributed to a statewide decline in gun violence. "In California, since the 1990s, we...

    Barbara Boxer, the senator from California, leaned over her press secretary, Peter True, as he sat at an HP desktop computer and tried to find an old campaign ad from 2010. Boxer wanted me to see the ad because it featured interviews with former employees of HP who had been laid off by the storied technology company’s one-time CEO, Carly Fiorina, who in 2010 challenged Boxer for her seat and now, five years later, seeks the Republican nomination for a somewhat higher office: president of the United States. -snip- Fiorina was, in Boxer’s telling, a monstrously greedy businesswoman who would...

    Sitting in for Bill O'Reilly, Eric Bolling made the point that Hillary Clinton is using gender in her campaign and Carly Fiorina is not. Um, back up, Eric. The question is not if Hillary or Carly uses her gender – they both do. The question is how they use it. Much like her private servers and missing emails, Hillary doesn't try to hide her "anything to win" survival mentality. The surprising part is that it never seems to hurt her. Hillary moved to New York in September, 1999.  She'd decided she was ready for primetime and set her sights...

    California Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina's prospects appear to be fading, with a slew of new polls showing her several points behind Sen. Barbara Boxer. The latest, California's respected nonpartisan Field Poll, was released Thursday night and showed Boxer with an 8-percentage-point lead among likely voters. The incumbent had 49 percent of the vote to the challenger's 41 percent. That result comes after a Suffolk University poll released earlier in the week gave Boxer a 10-point lead, a CNN/Time poll put her ahead by 5 points and a Los Angeles Times survey had her leading by 8. Two automated surveys,...

    Sen. Barbara Boxer lashed out at Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina on Friday, saying that the woman she defeated in 2010 is a “mean-spirited,” failed business leader who cared more about enriching herself than about working Americans.“Here is a woman who ran against me in the worst year Democrats ever had and we won in a landslide because the people of California didn’t want her to do to the country what she did to Hewlett-Packard,” Boxer said. “She’s the face of income inequality and the face of corporate greed…. She makes Mitt Romney look like a Democrat.” Romney was the...
