    Washington Examiner ^ | February 26, 2017 | Kyle Feldscher
    New Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez didn't rule out a Hillary Clinton run for the presidency in 2020 on Sunday. Perez, speaking on ABC, was asked about Clinton's continued political statements in the wake of her 2016 defeat to President Trump, including just before the vote for the new DNC chairman Saturday. He said she can run if she wants. "Everyone who wants to run should run," he said of the 2020 Democratic primary. "And, I'm confident we're going to have a robust field of candidates."

    Complete Headline: Hillary Clinton Calls For 'Resistance': "We Need To Stay Engaged ... I'll Be With You Every Step Of The Way" Last month we noted that Hillary Clinton is looking to start her own "fabulous" TV show in an effort to remain relevant following a disastrous Presidential election loss in 2016. The show, according to an insider, would be "completely controlled" and will likely focus on undermining the efforts of President Donald Trump, while whipping her supporters into a frenzy. Now, in a three minute video address to fellow Democrats, the former Secretary of State says she is going...

    NY Post ^ | February 25, 2017 | Maureen Callahan
    In the wake of Hillary Clinton's devastating electoral loss, it seems Chelsea Clinton, historically boring and opinion-free, is mulling a run for high office. [Snip] Last November, Page Six reported that Chelsea was being groomed for a Congressional run. The Clintons "will not give up," a source said. "Chelsea would be the next extension of the Clinton brand." That's the problem. Putting aside America's exhaustion with dynastic politics, Chelsea herself, as a potential candidate, comes loaded with Clintonian baggage: the greed, the entitlement, and her mother’s greatest flaw - an inability to connect with common people.

    Former NAACP branch president Rachel Dolezal, who lied about being black but still identifies as black, is now jobless, living on food stamps and expects to lose her home next month. "There's no protected class for me," the former NAACP branch president told The Guardian. "I'm this generic, ambiguous scapegoat for white people to call me a race traitor and take out their hostility on. And I'm a target for anger and pain about white people from the black community. It's like I am the worst of all these worlds." Dolezal has applied for over 100 jobs, but has received...

    The largest and busiest airport in Arkansas would no longer be named after the only president and first lady from the state if a bill introduced in the legislature on Thursday succeeds. The legislation would prohibit public buildings or civil works from being named for anyone living or who served in public office in the 10 years prior to the structure’s completion. [Snip] "You have a president who was impeached for having an affair with an intern in the Oval Office and then disbarred," said state Sen.

    As French voters look set to make a massive swing to the right in their upcoming presidential election (see our notes on the topic here and here), a group of frightened liberal protesters have decided to back a relatively surprising, if impossible, presidential candidate in 2017, Barack Obama. And, lest you thing this is a joke, a quick walk around Paris even reveals campaign posters for "Obama17" plastered all around the city. The group of protesters who launched the effort to bring "hope and change" to France are urging French citizens to visit their website to sign a petition to...

    Seven people were fatally shot in Chicago on Wednesday, making it the deadliest day of 2017 so far. And it was only the 21st time in the past 16 years that Chicago has seen that many homicides in a single day, records analyzed by the Chicago Sun-Times show. The bloody day prompted another tweet from President Donald Trump, who wrote "Seven people shot and killed yesterday in Chicago. What is going on there - totally out of control. Chicago needs help!"

Pritzker, the billionaire heir whose father co-founded Hyatt hotels, floated the idea of switching bathrooms in the wake of President Donald Trump's executive order reversing an Obama policy that could have stripped federal funds from schools that maintain separate bathroom facilities based on sex.

    Should it be the Barack Obama Expressway or the Barack Obama Tollway? Democratic state legislators seem to agree that the hometown state senator made good should take his place alongside Ronald Reagan, John F. Kennedy and others immortalized in Illinois highways. But they apparently hit a fork in the road over just what stretch of pavement should get the honor. Two Illinois state representatives have competing plans to rename different Illinois highways after Obama.

    University of Washington Tacoma - An "antiracist" poster in a college writing center insists American grammar is "racist" and an "unjust language structure," promising to prioritize rhetoric over "grammatical 'correctness.'" The poster, written by the director, staff, and tutors of the University of Washington, Tacoma's Writing Center, states "racism is the normal condition of things," declaring that it permeates rules, systems, expectations, in courses, school and society. "Linguistic and writing research has shown clearly for many decades that there is no inherent 'standard' of English," proclaims the writing center's statement. "Language is constantly changing.

    On Tuesday, American psychiatrists, psychologist, and mental health experts signed a letter warning about Trump's mental health. They believe that Trumps' emotional instability is reflected in his speeches and actions, and therefore he is not capable of serving safely as a president. A lot of people have questioned President Trump' mental health. The concern has even gotten to the Congress, where representatives have considered proposing legislation that would require a psychiatrist in the White House. As well, NGOs, such as Change.org, have started petitions to remove Trump from the office given his mental condition. [Snip] Trump is a narcissist and...

"Young black men are 3X more likely to be shot by trained shooters than their white peers," notes the site for the campaign. "A disturbing potential correlation: The most popular target for shooters to learn to use their firearm is a black silhouette. Unconscious bias can be deadly."

    For the third week in a row, President Trump is spending the weekend in Florida at Mar-a-Lago. It seems Trump enjoys spending time at the club he owns in Palm Beach, but since the election, his stays there have raised issues not seen when he was a private citizen. They involve security and the impact his visits are having on people and businesses in Palm Beach. At Palm Beach County Park Airport in Lantana, just six miles from Mar-a-Lago, the situation is dire.

    When Barack Obama came into office, George W. Bush left him with two wars and an economy teetering on the brink of colossal disaster. Eight years later, Obama handed off to Donald Trump a country with challenges, but no immediate crises looming. Less than a month after taking office, though, Trump finds himself awash in catastrophes that are all of his own making. Trump's biggest mess results from his choice of retired Gen. Michael Flynn to be his national security advisor.

(A "fashion" crowd isn't usually the case at a New York menswear show.) And as the first look walked out, a man to my right said out loud...

    Billboard ^ | February 7, 2017 | Adelle Platon
    After Kanye West purged his timeline of Donald Trump tweets, a rapper named King Myers claimed West produced an anti-Trump song called "Propaganda" in his Twitter bio, and was believed to be signed to G.O.O.D. Music. A source close to the situation tells Billboard that West did not produce the song, nor is King Myers signed to the label. [Snip] The song "Propaganda" contains lines like, "I ask Allah how the hell Trump still livin'/ I say and do what I want 'cause I'm a real n---a," and calls for the POTUS' impeachment in light of his recent immigration ban.

    National Review ^ | February 8, 2017 | Kevin D. Williamson
    Hillary Rodham Clinton has had an odd career for a feminist icon. Her main occupation has consisted of being the long-suffering wife of a powerful man, infamous for treating subordinate women as disposable conveniences, who abused her ruthlessly and humiliated her publicly. In exchange for standing by her man, she was given an orphaned Senate seat in New York, where she did not live, and two shots at the presidency, which she lost to an unknown back-bencher from Chicago in 2008 and to a reality-television host in 2016. Margaret Thatcher she isn't.

    The Hill ^ | February 8, 2017 | Alexander Bolton
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-Ky.) decision to rebuke the Senate's most prominent liberal woman has significantly raised the temperature in what was already a ­red-hot chamber of Congress. [Snip] Warren, who is viewed as a top-tier 2020 presidential candidate, is usually very selective about her media interviews and generally does not engage with reporters in the Senate hallways. But on Wednesday, she went on a media blitz, which included interviews with CNN, MSNBC, ABC's "The View" and The Hill.

    Daily Caller ^ | February 6, 2017 | Stewart Lawrence
    Remember when Democrats predicted the imminent decline of the GOP? The theory was that Republicans were so out of touch with women and ethnic minorities that they would soon be relegated to the status of a "permanent minority" - supported only by Southern white men and incapable of recapturing the White House. Donald Trump’s victory has put an end to this fantasy. Now it's the Democrats who are facing their own "doomsday" scenario. [Snip] For Democrats, who've grown accustomed to having their way in national politics, it's like staring into the abyss. Note: The entire article recounts the terrible state...

    (UK) Evening Standard ^ | February 7, 2017 | Fiona Simpson
    Hillary Clinton claimed the "future was female" in her first public address since Donald Trump moved in to the White House. In a video for the 2017 Makers conference, the former Democratic candidate praised thousands of women who marched across the world in protest against President Trump's inauguration. [Snip] "Just look at the amazing energy we saw last month as women organised a march that galvanized millions of people in our country and across the world. "Now more than ever we need to stay focused on the theme of this year's conference: Be Bold."

    A day after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) was drilled by Meet The Press host Chuck Todd on whether her party's leadership was out of touch with the current political climate the nearly three-decade veteran of Congress mistakenly referred to President Donald Trump as "President Bush." "While its only been a couple of weeks since the inauguration, we've seen nothing that I can work with President Bush on," said Pelosi during a Monday press conference.
  • (Austin, Texas) Judge Wears Anti-Trump Pussy Hat to Court

    Law Newz ^ | February 5, 2016 | Alberto Luperon
    Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt has been rocking headgear with strong anti-Trump symbolism: The Pussy hat. To say it's politically charged is like saying third-rails are shocking: These hats are pointed symbols in opposition to President Donald Trump, who said in an infamous 2005 video that he grabbed women by their privates. That footage became controversial because the action meets legal definitions of sexual assault if done without consent.

    Western Journalism ^ | February 3, 2017 | V. Saxena
    Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly's arrival at NBC News, where she is to replace hosts Tamron Hall and Al Roker on the third hour of the Today show, has triggered anger from the National Association of Black Journalists, which claims the network is engaging in "whitewashing." [Snip] It added that Hall and Roker's strong ratings deserve "praise, not punishment," and then took a swing at Kelly, claiming that she has "a well-documented history of offensive remarks regarding people of color."

    Howard Stern, the famous radio show host, said Wednesday that he wished his longtime friend, President Trump, did not run for president because he is concerned about his mental health because "he just wants to be liked." "I personally wish that he had never run. I told him that," Stern, 63, said. "Because I actually think this is something that is going to be very detrimental to his mental health, too. Because he wants to be liked, he wants to be loved, he wants people to cheer for him. I don't think this is going to be a healthy experience...
