  • Why Trump’s Inauguration is Not the Beginning of an Era -- but the End

    I spent a good chunk of the holiday break in a cabin with a spectacular view of a bay just off the Pacific Ocean outside the tiny town of Inverness north of San Francisco. It reminds me of the view from the cabin I grew up with in the American heartland, outside the Twin Cities in Minnesota. Looking out over the natural beauty of this amazing country of ours helped me think through the tumultuous past year with a big-picture, more timeless perspective. It helped me get clear about what lies ahead. The Brexit vote in England and then the...

    Spread rumors about Russian vote rigging, push protests Hillary Clinton’s campaign operatives have fueled efforts to delegitimize President-elect Donald Trump, pushing allegations of his complicity with Russian email hacks and boosting protests of the inauguration. Brian Fallon, a former spokesman for the Clinton presidential campaign, has said there’s “too much evidence” that Mr. Trump was in league with Russian spies trying to rig the election. Former Clinton campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri used Twitter to circulate maps of protest sites for Mr. Trump’s inauguration on Friday. Neera Tanden, a policy adviser on Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, has made her anti-Trump stance...

    A Senate Republican is blasting President-elect Donald Trump's criticism of Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), praising the lawmaker for his leadership in the civil rights movement in the 1960s. Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) on Saturday seized on Trump's characterization of Lewis as "All talk, talk, talk - no action," pointing out that his "talk" made a significant contribution in the civil rights movement. "John Lewis and his 'talk' have changed the world," Sasse tweeted.

    The Mormon Tabernacle Choir's acceptance of the invitation to sing at Donald Trump's inauguration has spawned widespread debate among the faithful and thousands of signatures on a petition demanding the decision's reversal. Now the choir's participation has even more fallout: the resignation of a female singer. "Since 'the announcement,' I have spent several sleepless nights and days in turmoil and agony. I have reflected carefully on both sides of the issue, prayed a lot, talked with family and friends, and searched my soul," Jan Chamberlin wrote in a resignation letter to the choir president and choir members.

    Hillary Clinton is "hurting" following her election loss to Donald Trump, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Wednesday. "I think it is fair to say she’s hurting," Feinstein said during an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell. The Democrat had lunch with Clinton last week when the former secretary of state visited Capitol Hill to attend Nevada Sen. Harry Reid’s retirement party. "She is brave," Feinstein said of Clinton. "She is a real professional in the sense of her values, care, concern. I think all of us know who watch that campaign, it was a very hard campaign for her - the...

    Publicist James La Force and husband-writer Stephen Henderson have decided to forgo their annual holiday party known for it’s somewhat raucous atmosphere, due to the outcome of the presidential election. In an interesting approach to this years’ election drama, the couple went ahead and printed their invitation pre-Trump victory with an illustration of Hillary in a Santa suit waving a flag with the caption “Make America Merry Again.” Alas when she did not win the duo, who wrote, “So confident we were of her victory, we designed and printed the attached invitation before Nov. 8th,” were presumably in that “liberal...

    The last time we encountered David Brock, Hillary Clinton's so called media "attack dog", was two months ago when we exposed a money laundering scheme involving over a dozen of his Pro-Clinton SuperPACs. Now, it appears that unable to concede defeat, the man who aligned his career with Hillary Clinton, is going for blood, and is soliciting the help, but mostly money, of Clinton's top donors. According to Politico, Brock is launching his own Koch-brothers-like donor network to finance attacks on President-elect Donald Trump and to rebuild the political left after Trump’s stunning victory over Clinton last week.

Blumenthal, a former journalist who has been nicknamed “Grassy Knoll” by some in Clintonworld because of his tendency to latch on to conspiracy theories, made the charge in an interview on Dutch television after Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump. “It was the result of a cabal of right-wing agents of the FBI in the New York office attached to Rudy Giuliani, who was a member of Trump’s campaign,” said Blumenthal, who emailed frequently...

We are so exhausted from thinking about this election, millions of people will take up leaf-raking and garage cleaning with intense pleasure. We liberal elitists are wrecks. The Trumpers had a whale of a good time, waving their signs, jeering at the media, beating up protesters, chanting "Lock her up" -- we elitists just stood and clapped. Nobody chanted "Stronger Together." It just doesn't chant.

Since he jumped self-confidently into the political limelight, Donald Trump has been quite the upside-down man. Customarily, primary seasons permit each party’s voters to indulge in a rational process of elimination: First, they discover which candidate most closely agrees with them on policy, and then they ask themselves whether that person is capable of representing their ideas in public. This time around, however, this process has been disastrously inverted, a solid portion of the Republican party’s balloters having decided first who...

    Two days after he was booted from a Donald Trump press conference by security for asking questions about immigration out of turn, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos defended himself on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.” Asked if he was grandstanding when he got into a confrontation with the GOP presidential frontrunner, Ramos said absolutely not. “I’m just a reporter asking questions,” Ramos explained. “But I also believe, Anderson, that you have to go the extra mile to be tough on those who are in power.”

    [SNIP] "There is a reason that they racially profile us in the way they do. Sometimes it is wrong, and sometimes it is right," Barkley said. The problem with these statements isn't just that they are misleading -- 16 out of 29 witness statements said that Mike Brown had his hands up to surrender, in direct conflict with Darren Wilson's story; and police used a banned choke hold on Eric Garner, a measure that was known to cause death -- but that Charles Barkley is uniquely and astoundingly unqualified to discuss issues of race, law and police violence. If property...

    In the wake of the Nov. 24 decision by a Missouri grand jury to not press charges against the White officer responsible for killing an unarmed African-American teen, a coalition of civil groups presented a unified front in its denouncement of the decision and its call for systemic changes to the American justice system. “We are profoundly disappointed with the miscarriage of justice that occurred last night,” Barbara Arnwine, executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, said during a press call on Nov. 25. Although the Ferguson grand jury did not indict Darren Wilson, she added,...

    -snip- Cantor was fairly placid during his appearance on ABC’s “This Week” and in an earlier interview with CNN’s “State of the Union,” but bristled when ABC correspondent asked him about Ingraham.Cantor zeroed in on Ingraham’s charge that he was “two-faced” and a “phony” on the issue of immigration reform because he touted himself as an opponent of amnesty but also worked on legislation to grant legal status to young illegal immigrants.Ingraham joked that Cantor should have been traded to the Taliban in exchange for American POW Bowe Bergdahl, who is accused of deserting his combat post in Afghanistan.“That suggestion...

    Yesterday after complaining that one of the hoodlums called Freepers at Free Republic had copied my article without my permission, I was publicly chastised and escorted off by his excellency Jim Robinson, the psychotic founder of Free Republic himself. I was upset at first until I read other accounts online of Robinson’s war on Conservative Bloggers and how I am now in pretty good company with the likes of Michelle Malkin and Sean Hannity, who belonged to Free Republic at one time and were both banished by Mr Robinson. “Everyone I knew basically left because of so many childish, immature...

    Statement from Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee Washington, D.C. (May, 6, 2013)—Today, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, issued the following statement regarding recent allegations relating to Benghazi: “I believe Congress should conduct investigations—particularly those involving our national security—in a bipartisan and responsible manner, and that whistleblowers must have the ability to come forward to Congress and be protected from retaliation when they report waste, fraud, or abuse.
