  • Did Senator 'Clear Misconduct' Call CSPAN on Mal-Caption?

    Closed captioning is a wonderful tool for the hearing impaired and those of us who covered the Hillary campaign but just didn't want to hear her voice. It's an automated system, clearly at the mercy of the tone and syntax of the person speaking. Sometimes words are mangled, sometimes the interpretation is way off, and in some cases the misinterpretation has a deep sense of irony. Such an occurrence happened during President Trump's speech on Tax Reform in Springfield, Missouri; captured for all posterity on CSPAN's closed captioning system.

    At the Netroots Nation conference in Atlanta, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), the darling of the progressive Left, was blunt and straightforward in her vision of the party. They’re in a rut because they’re not left wing enough and further left is where they should go. Ever since the 2016 primaries, the Warren/Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) wing of the party has become more vocal, more active, and completely blinded with rage over Donald Trump’s 2016 win. Many are saying the moderate, centrist path that kept Bill Clinton in the White House for two terms is over, and that Jon Ossoff, who...

    Missouri Democrat didn't disclose role in foundation to Senate until June 2017 ...she told the Washington Post she never had a "call or meeting" with Kislyak even though she had publicly announced both a call and meeting with him. This week, CNN reported that McCaskill also attended a black-tie reception at Kislyak's D.C. residence in November 2015.

    In less than two weeks, the Office of Personnel Management is expected to launch the new background investigation service to help fix the mess created by a series of incidents ranging from a lack of contractor oversight to the massive data breach affecting 21.5 million current and former federal employees. Officials promise the National Background Investigations Bureau (NBIB) will be a much different organization than its predecessor, the Federal Investigative Services. It will have a politically appointed director, will be headquartered in D.C. and be a full member of the Performance Accountability Council, so it aligns with customers for increased...

    I keep thinking one of these days, politicians will remember the internet exists, and along with it, evidence of almost about everything theyve said or done while in office (and often outside of the office, too just ask David Wu). Alas As the Trump cabinet targeting continues, Sen. Claire McCaskill stepped in a huge pile by claiming she never had a meeting or call with a Russian ambassador.

    Well...that's embarrassing.... Oh, THAT, Ambassador! Dan already did a fine job of explaining why the whole Sessions/Russia flap is a big nothingburger, so I wont rehash that here. What I will do is point out that the left seems to think this is chum in the political water. Theyve whipped themselves up in to a frenzy, fueled by anti-Trump hysteria and the hope that maybe - just maybe - they can finally get one of their conspiracy theories to stick.

    NASCAR champ Carl Edwards seems to be open to trading his drivers seat for a spot in the U.S. Senate. The 37-year-old didnt exactly rule out challenging Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat whose second term in office expires in 2018. I believe firmly in the principles that the U.S. was founded upon. If I could help, I definitely would consider it, he texted to the Associated Press on Wednesday.

  • If Edward Snowden Is Right About Clinton's Emails, Bernie Sanders Will Win a Landslide Victory

    The Huffington Post's Politics The Blog ^ | October 1, 2015 | H.A. Goodman, columnist
    Perhaps nobody on the planet knows more about intelligence protocol than Edward Snowden. If Snowden says it's "completely ridiculous" to believe that Clinton's emails were safe, then yes, it's fair to include his viewpoint in any critique of Hillary Clinton's latest controversy. In addition, since I believe Senator Bernie Sanders is desperately needed at this point in U.S. history, and electing Clinton or a Republican would essentially be nominating the same president on war and foreign policy, it's important to address relevant analysis of the email controversy. There seems to be a bizarre paradigm of thought among some Democrats that...

    In a feministic attempt to be hip, the Hillary Clinton campaign decided to do something “fun” and ask Democratic senators – all female of course – to hold up signs with their answers to questions about the Democratic presidential candidate front-runner.  It’s sort of like, remember how Michelle Obama held a sign with the #bringbackourgirls in an effort to “fight back” at the terrorist group Boko Haram that kidnapped hundreds of girls from a Nigerian school? As if that would make any difference at all.  This entire exercise is sort of like that, only much lamer. Besides, what better way...

    Yesterday afternoon at Netroots Nation in Providence, RI, I attempted to ask the embattled Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) about his campaign, specifically his record as the deciding vote for Obamacare. Ohio voters passted an amendment to their constitution outlawing the Democrats' health care law by a wide margin in 2011: Ohioans overwhelmingly rejected the healthcare mandate provisions of Obamacare. They did this by handily passing an amendment to the states constitution that reads, in part, as follows: No federal, state, or local law or rule shall compel, directly or indirectly, any person, employer, or health care provider to participate in...
  • Democratic senator TRASHES Bernie Sanders (McCaskill, the Hitlery lover)

    Just how worried is Hillary Clinton over the suddenly-surging Bernie Sanders? Concerned enough that key supporters are taking to MSNBC to attack the Vermont senator. But will it work, or backfire? Fellow US Senator Claire McCaskill, a Clinton supporter, delivered a scathing assessment of her colleague during todays Morning Joe, repeatedly calling Sanders a socialist and accusing the media of giving him a pass. As co-host Joe Scarborough pointed out, however, most of Bernies supporters already know hes a socialist and are quite happy about it. Did Senator McCaskill consider whether calling attention to that on MSNBC would actually hurt...

    It took just a few days after the stunning defeat of Obama's attempt to fast-track the Trans Pacific Partnership bill in the Senate at the hands of his own Democratic party, before everything returned back to normal and the TPP fast-track was promptly passed. Why? The simple answer: money. Or rather, even more money. Because while the actual contents of the TPP may be highly confidential, and their public dissemination may lead to prison time for the "perpetrator" of such illegal transparency .... fast-tracking the TPP, meaning its passage through Congress without having its contents available for debate or amendments,...

    The domestic violence in Shepards past is both shocking and repulsive in detail. On February 15, 1998, police were called to then-Mrs. Shepards house (the couple had been separated since June of the previous year) by a girlfriend. According to the police report (.pdf file), Mrs. Shepard said of her husband: Read on. Joseph entered my home. I told him to leave. He came up to me looking angry. I put my hands up to protect my breasts as they are sore (cancer). He has hit me before in the breast. He grabbed my wrist and arm and pushed me...

    Among Democrats, fighting is breaking out all over. The Senate’s third-ranking Democrat, Chuck Schumer (D-NY), is hurling criticisms toward the White House over Barack Obama’s handling of the recession and his myopic and politically ruinous obsession with reforming the nation’s health care system amid that economic downturn.In response, the White House took what Reuters called the “unusual step” of publicly pledging to veto an overdue plan to reform the nation’s tax code which Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has been in the process of negotiating with House Republicans. When Obama announced his intention to extend legal status to...
