    Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura hinted at a possible White House bid as an independent during an interview over the weekend, while harshly criticizing President Trump. Speaking on Fox Los Angeles "The Issue Is," the onetime wrestling star and outspoken Minnesota pol said he would wait until the pool of presidential candidates dwindles further before possibly enterting the race. “I may be doing things behind the scenes right now,” Ventura said, winking to host Elex Michaelson. “You gotta wait for it to get down to two, then you come in if you’re going to come in.” “I have that voice...
  • Gabbard Claims Trump Incites Racism, Bigotry, and Violence

    The Political Insider ^ | July 23, 2019 | Wayne Dupree
    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?”
  • Margaret Atwood: Anti-abortion states should pay women who give birth

    Margaret Atwood, the bestselling author of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” said Friday that states passing anti-abortion laws should pay women who give birth. In an appearance on The View, Atwood notes states are rolling back abortion rights, saying, “You’re approaching a state in which women are essentially being conscripted or drafted the way you would be conscripted or drafted into the Army … they get their food, their lodging, their clothing, their medical — all of that coverage.” She added: “If you want the state to claim ownership of women’s bodies, you should pay.” Atwood’s comments come after multiple states —...

    Dear friend, This week, the Trump Administration announced plans to take $3.6 billion away from military construction projects so the President can build portions of his border wall. That includes taking away more than $77 million from projects in Virginia. President Trump's decision to pull funding from critical national security projects is deeply concerning. Our military construction funding should be used for safety improvements that protect our troops and bolster our national security, not for a vanity project. The Department of Defense informed me that the Administration plans to take funding away from the following military construction projects in Virginia:...

    Elizabeth Warren defended her false claim that Michael Brown had been “murdered” by police. Brown was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson on August 9, 2014. That much is true. Left-wing activists said Brown had been shot in the back and had put his hands over his head and said, “Don’t shoot!”. None of those claims were true. The incident revitalized the “Black Lives Matter” movement, bringing unrest to many American cities. Race relations suffered a decline from which they have not recovered. The Obama Justice Department found Brown had not been murdered, that he probably attacked Wilson...

    Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams will not run for president, according to media reports, and will instead focus on combating voter suppression, an issue that took center stage during her unsuccessful run last year. On Tuesday, Abrams announced her new initiative, called Fair Fight 2020, at the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades Convention in Las Vegas. The name is an offshoot of a group she started after her loss. A close aide familiar with the decision told The New York Times that Abrams will focus on the new program rather than run for office.

    Shaun King, an influential social-justice activist in the national Black Lives Matter movement, has endorsed Jody Owens in the race for Hinds County district attorney. King and his political action committee, Real Justice PAC, join a number of local officials and community leaders in supporting Owens, including Jackson Mayor Chokwe A. Lumumba. King's activist work includes organizing a social-media campaign for attackers in the assault of Deandre Harris, whom six men attacked in a parking garage during the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017. King raised $60,000 for Tamir Rice's family. Rice was a 12-year-old black boy...

    Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said he has “no doubt” President Donald Trump is a racist following the president’s recent attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color in which he told them to “go back” to other countries. “What I’m hearing over and over again from my constituents is, please save our democracy,” Cummings told ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday. “They say, ‘Im scared.’ And I have never in my total of 37 years in public service ever heard a constituent say that they were scared of their leader,” Cummings said, referencing Trump. Asked if he believes Trump is a racist,...

    For the first time since the end of World War I, the president of the United States is not the leader of the free world. When the guns fell silent at the end of the Great War on Nov. 11, 1918, Europe was in ashes after more than four years of fighting. America was newly ascendant, a leader in manufacturing, science, military power and global influence – with a home front untouched by the destruction of war. Our leading role as the most powerful and influential nation on Earth was solidified with our victory in World War II. We never...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez never met a camera she didn’t like. And she doesn’t bother spending any time in her district, helping her constituents, either. So, of course, on Monday, AOC — seeing a chance to cash in politically with a crisis — headed to the U.S.-Mexico border in El Paso, Texas, to view a housing center for foreigners who have tried to sneak into America or have claimed political asylum. She wanted everyone to know, so she took to social media to make a slew of claims, none of them substantiated, including one against agents with the U.S. Customs and...

    Time Magazine columnist Ian Bremmer apologized Monday for fabricating a quote from President Donald Trump about North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un that went viral the day before. “My tweet yesterday about Trump preferring Kim Jong Un to Biden as President was meant in jest,” Bremmer tweeted Monday. “The President correctly quoted me as saying it was a ‘completely ludicrous’ statement. I should have been clearer. My apologies.” Bremmer’s apology comes after he tweeted a quote attributed to the president alleging he said, “Kim Jong Un is smarter and would make a better President than Sleepy Joe Biden.” Many people...

By Michelle Goldberg Opinion Columnist April 8, 2019 On Sunday evening, news broke that Kirstjen Nielsen was leaving her job as head of the Department of Homeland Security. The New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman tweeted that according to people close to Nielsen, one reason she hung on as long as she did was because “she was aware how awful life would/will be for her on the outside,” given her role in defending Donald Trump’s policies. Let’s make it so. Nielsen did not create Trump’s monstrous...

    New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to defend herself against claims promoted by Donald Trump, Jr. and others that she changes her accent to pander to minority audiences. In a string of Saturday evening tweets, the first-term Democrat wrote that her habit of "code-switching" was informed by years of navigating professional and social environments as a woman of color. "Next time you‘re told straight hair is 'unprofessional' and that speaking like your parents do is 'uneducated,' then you can complain about code-switching," she wrote, referring to the practice of changing speech patterns based on environment. "Code-switching is a tool communities...

    Democratic presidential contender was at the Jazz Foundation’s ‘A Great Night in Harlem’ annual gala Sen. Bernie Sanders made a trip to the Apollo Theater in Harlem to pay tribute to Harry Belafonte, Tony Bennett and the legacy of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., but along the way slammed President Donald Trump as a racist. The Democratic presidential contender was at the Jazz Foundation’s “A Great Night in Harlem” annual gala where Belafonte and Bennett were honoured on Thursday night. Both worked with King, and the evening marked the 51st anniversary of King’s slaying in Memphis, Tennessee, during a...

    Justin Amash is reconsidering his place in a party he is at odds with, isolated from Republicans that have largely bent to the will of the president. The Michigan Republican is gaining a national following as a Congressman who isn’t afraid to buck the Republican line, often going to toe to toe with the party’s biggest star, President Donald Trump. Amash is a frequent critic of the president, often slamming Trump on Twitter, accusing him of violating the constitution and attacking Trump’s character.

    Hey, remember when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said that fighting global warming was our generation’s World War II? It was an idiotic remark, but then she pushed policy to back up her words. Alas, the Green New Deal was born.  An economic disaster, which seeks to transition the nation off of fossil fuels in a decade, kill farting cows, upgrade all buildings to energy efficient standards, whatever those may be, and eliminate the combustible engine. It’s the epitome of intrusive government and it comes with a $90 trillion price tag. This is on top of the far left’s jobs guarantee,...
