    A day after the Tennessee Democratic Party voted to remove Memphis Rep. John DeBerry from the party's Aug. 6 primary ballot, the legislator hit back at the party, saying it no longer valued a diversity of ideas. “The so-called party of inclusion is everything but inclusive. It’s all about thinking with one brain, marching in step and following the company line, sitting there like a brainless idiot and letting them tell you what to do,” he said in an interview Thursday morning. In recent years, DeBerry, who represents District 90 - a gerrymandered district that weaves from north of Interstate...

    Today the character of Jeff Flake, the former resident Hamlet of the Senate, is being played by GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who originally inherited her Senate seat from her daddy, Frank Murkowski. Murkowski the daughter says she is “disturbed” by Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s statements that he will be working closely with and taking his cues from President Trump in any impeachment trial in the Senate. Imagine that -- the leader of her party in the Senate defending the President from her party from a political coup involving one sham investigation after another with no real crime, not even...

    A Florida man pulled over in North Carolina for a traffic violation was arrested for carrying 98 grams of cocaine and 35 grams of meth in his vehicle. Orlando Lopez, 43, a Palm Coast, Fla. native, faces two counts of trafficking in methamphetamine, two counts of trafficking in cocaine, possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine and several other charges. Unfortunately, the man’s mugshot has become a bigger story than the crimes he’s charged with. After the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office posted his mugshot on social media, comments on Lopez’s appearance began to pour in prompting the office...

The legendary singer and outspoken liberal activist tweeted out her concerns for the American people if the shutdown remains in effect.

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said that Democrats should try to impeach Vice President Mike Pence after they impeach President Trump on “The View” on Friday. “Do you think Pence will be better than Trump?” host Joy Behar asked Waters. “No, and when we finish with Trump, we have to go and get Putin. He’s next,” Waters said. “Putin or Pence?” Behar asked, confused. “Pence,” Waters said, correcting herself. Waters has been calling for Trump’s impeachment since February.
  • Maxine Waters goes completely unhinged

    Representative Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is making a strong case to become the poster child for Trump Derangement Syndrome. Long an exploiter of loony left memes, such as the contention that the CIA deliberately spread a crack epidemic in America's inner cities, Waters loves the attention and praise she garners from voicing the radical thoughts other crazy lefties shy away from. She owes her national profile to her readiness to glorify the 1992 Rodney King rioters in Los Angeles as participating in a "rebellion," not a "riot," justifying the looting of many Korean-owned stores as "mothers who took this as an...

    NEWSER) – TMZ has the graphic photos of the accident, if you're so inclined. Lohan was spending her Sunday boating off the Turkish coast, but ended her day in a local ER.

Luckily for Lohan, her friends were able to find the missing fingertip, and a local plastic surgeon was able to reattach it. The actress shared photos and video of her heavily bandaged finger...

    Congressional leaders show lack of respect for founding documentOur Constitution is in a sorry state these days. The nation’s founding document has been weakened by President Obama’s ongoing expansion of power and further diminished by his Democratic allies on Capitol Hill who don’t even bother to cite the highest law in the land properly. Consider House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s confused response to a simple question asked at her weekly press conference on Thursday. A reporter wanted to know whether she was willing to split up the deals with Republicans over expiring tax rates and raising the debt ceiling. The...

    WYTHEVILLE, Va. -- Vice President Joe Biden, speaking in Wytheville, Va., this hour, created a stir earlier in the day at a campaign speech in Danville. Biden told the crowd, many of them African Americans, that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s policies would enable the banking and financial sectors to “put you all back in chains.” The remark came roughly two-thirds of the way through the 30-minute speech. "Romney wants to let the — he said in the first hundred days, he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules, unchain Wall Street,” Biden said. “They’re...

    Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry's disastrous debate performance last week has hurt his campaign, but may not be fatal, a Reuters/Ipsos poll found. After watching a video of the Texas governor stumbling while trying to name three government agencies he would eliminate if elected, 48 percent of registered Republicans thought less favorably of him, the poll found. But while 31 percent of Republicans said Perry should drop out of the race, many more -- 52 percent -- said he should stay in. Perry's embarrassing memory lapse further roiled a Republican race already hit by the travails of Herman Cain, who...

    As I watched the debate Wednesday night between the eight Republican presidential primary opponents, I was overall pleased, both by the way the candidates handled themselves and by the answers they gave to the myriad of economic questions they were asked. It was a debate that I personally think all Republicans won, and while many like myself may think that Perry is finished, the ultimate loser was CNBC. CNBC lost because they could not make the Republican candidates act like a bunch of toddlers fighting over the only toy in the room. The moderators tried their best to get...

    We’ve all had human moments. President Obama is still trying to find all 57 states. Ronald Reagan got lost somewhere on the Pacific Highway in an answer to a debate question. Gerald Ford ate a tamale without removing the husk. And tonight Rick Perry forgot the third agency he wants to eliminate. Just goes to show there are too damn many federal agencies. The governor said it best afterwards: “I’m glad I had my boots on, because I sure stepped in it tonight.” While the media froths over this all too human moment, we thought we would take this opportunity...

    Rick Perry says he “stepped in it” when he couldn't remember the third federal department he would abolish if elected, but insisted the debate blunder wouldn't force him out of the Republican presidential field. “Oh, shoot, no,” Mr. Perry told The Associated Press on Thursday morning, the day after making the error during a GOP debate. Asked whether his campaign, which is struggling to regain traction, could survive, Mr. Perry replied: “This ain't a day for quitting nothing.”

    Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry, looking to bounce back from a recent debate gaffe, doubled-down in his own defense Thursday by admitting debating is not his strength. “If we’re electing the Debater-in-Chief, don’t elect me,” the Texas governor said on Fox News, repeating his previous criticism of President Obama, who he calls a “great debater.” Earlier in the day, Perry called President Obama “sleek as a mink” over his debate-style on conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham’s show. Perry stayed on message in his latest appearance, part of a media blitz Thursday following a debate misstep the previous night in...

"I stepped in it out there."

Said Perry: "I may have forgotten Energy, but I haven't forgotten my conservative principles." Asked by a reporter if that moment was embarrassing, Perry said: "I stepped...
