    First she suggested the Vermont senator was sexist. Now she’s reaching for the race card. On Oct. 23, Hillary Clinton opened a new front against Sen. Bernie Sanders: She framed him as a sexist. Clinton took a phrase Sanders had routinely used in talking about gun violence—that “shouting” wouldn’t solve the problem—and suggested that he had aimed it at her because “when women talk, some people think we’re shouting.”

  • Liberal Group Starts Petition to Rename Ronald Reagan National Airport

    Now that Mount McKinley is no more, liberals are turning their eyes toward Washington, D.C., and Ronald Reagan National Airport. The influential liberal political action committee CREDO Action is behind the effort with a petition drive. The petition says that because John Boehner and congressional Republicans complained when President Barack Obama restored Alaska's Mount McKinley name to Denali, they should stay consistent and change Ronald Reagan National Airport back to its original name honoring Americas first president, George Washington. Republicans, led by Boehner, voted to rename Washington National Airport after Ronald Reagan in 1998. "Given Speaker Boehners current outrage and...

    Meet the well-funded advocacy network of liberal groups that orchestrated the successful ouster of the Benham Brothers from HGTV. Until last week, David and Jason Benham were set to host a new home-renovation show on the Home and Garden Television network, called Flip It Forward. But all that changed after an obscure website called Right Wing Watch drew negative attention to the Benhams conservative views on abortion and gay marriage. The website vilified the hosts with the headline, HGTV Picks Anti-Gay, Anti-Choice Extremist For New Reality TV Show. The story shed light on how the hosts father, Flip Benham, is...
