    Former MSNBC host Ed Schultz opened up in a recent interview about why he believes he was fired in 2015. Schultz, who’s now anchor of a show on RT, told National Review‘s Jamie Weinstein that he believes it was because he supported Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), which was problematic, he charged, because the network was “in the tank for Hillary Clinton.”He described how MSNBC chief Phil Griffin was a "watchdog" who closely managed which stories were covered, and relayed one incident where his story about Sanders’s launch of his campaign was bumped in favor of other news. Sanders gave his official campaign...

    Bernie Sanders’ stepdaughter is considering a run for mayor of Burlington, Vermont, the same office that was the starting point for the independent U.S. senator’s political career. Carina Driscoll, a former city council member and progressive state legislator, said Monday that she would make a decision by the end of the month. She would not say which political party she would run under or if she would run as an independent. Democratic Mayor Miro Weinberger is expected to seek re-election in March 2018. “In my mind, it’s time to consider a new direction for Burlington and a new vision, and...

    While one deal struck by Jane O’Meara Sanders during her time as Burlington College’s president has triggered a federal investigation, another arrangement she engineered is breeding claims of nepotism and allegations of veiled threats against her husband’s presidential campaign. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ wife, Jane Sanders, is facing criticism over a “sweetheart deal” granted to a school founded by her daughter while president of the now-defunct Burlington College. Carol Moore, who served as the final president of the college from 2014 until its closure in May 2016, says Jane Sanders approved a deal for the college with Vermont Woodworking School...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and his wife, Jane Sanders have hired prominent defense attorneys, amid an FBI investigation into a loan Jane Sanders obtained to expand Burlington College while she was its president, CBS News confirms. Politico Magazine first reported the Sanders had hired lawyers to defend them in the probe. Sanders top adviser Jeff Weaver told CBS News the couple has sought legal protection over federal agents' allegations from a January 2016 complaint accusing then-President of Burlington College, Ms. Sanders, of distorting donor levels in a 2010 loan application for $10 million from People's United Bank to purchase 33...

  • Burlington is the latest retailer to drop Ivanka Trump's brand online

    The discount retailer Burlington Coat Factory no longer sells products from Ivanka Trump's brand online. As of Friday, the retailer's website doesn't show a stock of Ivanka Trump accessories and clothing. The change comes amid news of several retailers dropping the first daughter's line in the last two weeks, including Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Gilt. Burlington was selling 13 items from Ivanka's fashion line as of Tuesday, according to Shannon Coulter, the brand strategist who started the #GrabYourWallet boycott of Trump products. Since October, Coulter has charted which retailers do business with the Trump family on the Grab Your Wallet...
  • Despite mall shooter’s “SubhanAllah” post and admiration for ISIS caliph, police search for motive

    Jihad Watch ^ | 9/26/16 | Robert Spencer
    He had a history of violence and sexual abuse of women -- almost as if he grew up in a culture that revered violence and thought of non-Muslim women as "uncovered meat." He posted admiration for al-Baghdadi and Khamenei and a call for Muslims to repeat "SubhanAllah" multiple times. Maybe he wasn't a jihadi and there is some mitigating explanation for all of this. When authorities refuse to discuss it and appear to dismiss it out of hand, however, it only reinforces the impression that there is some deliberate effort to cover up jihad attacks -- an impression that authorities...
  • Vanity: As a Hispanic, I am OUTRAGED! (Cascade Mall killer was Muslim, not Hispano or Latino!)

    Self ^ | 9/25/16 | Self
    As a Hispanic woman, I am OUTRAGED that the news media reported that the killer, a Muslim Turk (Arcan Cetin) was branded a Hispanic, Latino, and even insofar as a "gang member" when, all along, he was "shouting" something (according to witnesses), which, according to Pam Geller, "we all know what that is". When are Hispanic groups going to be outraged about this? When are CNN, MSNBC and the Enemedia going to apologize for Hispanics? This is a new low in journalism and in fairly reporting the "news".

    On Tuesday night, my daughter and her friends went down to Claremont, New Hampshire to see Donald Trump in action. She and her chums range from the not terribly political to those with the usual enthusiasms of youth, so they went mainly because Trump's a hot ticket, and we don't get a lot of those in the Granite State. Her only other candidate encounter this season was at the North Haverhill Fair last summer when Lindsey Graham pounced outside the 4-H barn, no doubt with an eye to recruiting her for one of his "rotating first ladies".
  • Cops Shocked by Snow-Covered Car on the Road in Massachusetts

    That’s what you might call a restricted view. Police in Massachusetts were shocked when they spotted this car on the road in Wellesley. They quickly pulled the driver over Wednesday to point out they may need to clear their windshield of snow. And when they shared the picture on Twitter, neighboring force Burlington Police asked if perhaps the driver was wearing glasses with x-ray vision. “That is very…special. Were they driving with these?” they replied on the social media site. Police departments in the area have been warning drivers to clear windshields and roofs of snow and ice before hitting...
