    Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris has said that based on the video of Jacob Blake's shooting, the white police officer who shot him should be charged. In a wide-ranging interview with CNN's Dana Bash, Harris said she was "very clear" that the charges should be "considered in a very serious way and that there should be accountability and consequence." "Based on what I saw, he should be charged," the California senator told Bash, but added that she was "not in full possession of the facts and the evidence."
  • Trevor Noah Hailed for Being Unfunny; Compares USA to Apartheid-Era South Africa

    Trevor Noah's tenure as host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central is nearing five years, so they're reaching out for the expected positive publicity from the liberal media. Michael Ordona at the Los Angeles Times proclaimed that it's great the comedy isn't so central any more on Comedy Central. The Daily Show With Trevor Noah has gone from being jokes about the news to, more and more, the news with some jokes. If comedy is tragedy plus time, perhaps this is a natural evolution when we’re too close to the second part of that equation to produce a lot...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) argued on Thursday, regarding Jacob Blake’s shooting by Wisconsin police, that black lives have never “been treated as fully human” in America. Harris, the Democrat vice-presidential nominee, made the remark in a speech that was billed as a pre-rebuttal to President Donald Trump’s appearance at the Republican National Convention. The California lawmaker, in particular, argued recent events, including Blake’s shooting and the death of George Floyd in police custody, had exposed the difficult realities facing many of the country’s citizens. “The reality is that the life of a black person in America has never been treated...

    Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton gave speeches at the funeral for John Lewis, Democratic congressman who died earlier this month. Obama delivered the eulogy, and used it to level criticism at the Trump administration’s attacks on peaceful protesters and voting rights amid the coronavirus pandemic. “We can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators,” Obama said. “There are those in power who are doing their darndest to discourage people from voting, by closing polling locations and targeting minorities with restrictive ID laws, attacking our voting rights with...
  • Obama Uses John Lewis Funeral to Call for ‘Eliminating the Filibuster’

    Former President Barack Obama used his eulogy at the funeral of Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) to call for an end to the Senate filibuster to pass Democrats’ new legislation on voting reform. Obama said that Republicans had imitated Jim Crow-era restrictions on voting rights, which Lewis marched against, by passing state voter ID laws and other measures that conservatives argue prevent voter fraud. “And if all this takes is ending the filibuster, another Jim Crow relic, in order to secure the God-given rights of every American, then that’s what we should do.” Without mentioning Donald Trump by name, Obama likened...

    Tuesday on MSNBC, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) called the Texas GOP a “death cult” who wants “African-Americans” and “Latinos” to do the dying. O’Rourke said, “You know, the United States has been hit hard by COVID. Texas, arguably, harder than almost any other state right now, perhaps with the exception of Florida and Arizona, and within Texas, the Rio Grande Valley, and particularly Hidalgo County, is just getting the stuffing knocked out of it. They’re running out of beds and space in their hospitals and clinics. They’re running out of nurses and doctors to take care of the patients....

    The UN's human rights chief today urged countries to confront the legacy of slavery and colonialism and to make amends for 'centuries of violence and discrimination' through reparations. Addressing an urgent debate on racism and police brutality at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Michelle Bachelet called on countries to examine their pasts and to strive to better understand the scope of continuing 'systemic discrimination'. ---------- George Floyd's brother, Philonise Floyd, called on the United Nations to set up an independent commission to investigate the killings of African Americans by police. He made his speech via video message during...

    George Floyd should have been alive today. George Floyd would have been alive today if his humanity was recognized, valued and respected. George Floyd should have been protected by those who swore an oath to uphold the law and help the communities they serve. George Floyd is no longer with us because even in the middle of a global pandemic, police brutality has not ceased. COVID-19 is ravaging us, making it difficult to breathe, and yet systemic racism has been tightening its grip on our throats for years. Racism is trauma, passed from generation to generation. Enough is enough. Just...

    Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore blasted the Democratic National Committee (DNC) over what he described as its "disgusting" rule changes, saying they might pave the way for billionaire Michael Bloomberg to land a spot on the next presidential debate stage. On Friday, the DNC announced its requirements for the Feb. 19 debate in Las Vegas, increasing the polling threshold in addition to allowing any candidate who has earned delegates in the Iowa and New Hampshire primaries -- but it also eliminated the donor threshold that was previously set for its Democratic candidates. That means Bloomberg, who has been self-funding his campaign,...

    Pro-abortion Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg blasted pro-life laws during a campaign swing in Alabama this week. He attacked the pro-life legislators behind a law the state legislature approved this year that would protect women and unborn children from abortion. In May, Gov. Kay Ivey signed a bill that bans abortion in Alabama. But, during a roundtable discussion with abortion activists and Democrat voters, Buttigieg went after the pro-life lawmakers behind the bill, falsely claiming they “ignore science” and just want to “punish women.” Here’s more: Buttigieg criticized the law, saying the legislature was “ignoring science, criminalizing abortion, and punishing...

    Two years after the cancellation of her talk show, Chelsea Handler is back on Netflix, this time delivering a documentary-style dive into the concept of white privilege. “Hello Privilege, It’s Me Chelsea” dropped on Friday the Thirteenth, promising to explore how white privilege has benefited Handler’s life. When Chelsea first introduced her fans to the project on Instagram—taking a break from her usual marijuana smoke-filled cooking escapades—it seemed puzzling. Handler is, after all, the stand-up comedienne who penned the book “Uganda Be Kidding Me” and released a comedy special by the same name just five years ago.

    This hurts, because I like Tulsi Gabbard. She challenges Democrats for their hypocrisy, but her recent statement is beyond the pale for me. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard went on ABC's The View and made false claims that President Trump was inciting violence across the country. If Trump is inciting racism and violence, it’s the one thing he’s doing a very poor job at. I think he needs to turn to the Democrats for lessons on racism and political violence. I thought that in an alternate universe I could see myself maybe voting for Gabbard, depending upon several contingencies. Now, I am...

    Monday on ABC’s “The View,” Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) said President Donald Trump was “inciting racism and violence,” by continuing his feud with Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), known as “The Squad.” Co-host Sunny Hostin asked, “The president hasn’t backed down on his attacks on the four freshmen congresswomen. This weekend he tweeted this, ‘I don’t believe the four congresswomen are capable of loving our country.’ Do you think the president is inciting violence against these women?”
