    Schumer: Trump tells Earth to 'drop dead' By Jacqueline Thomsen - 06/01/17 04:16 PM EDT Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) cast President Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris climate change agreement as the president telling the Earth to "drop dead." Schumer posted a mock newspaper page on Twitter that said "Trump to Earth: Drop Dead," shortly after Trump's formal announcement. The mockup also featured the headlines: "U.S. No Longer a Leader," "Even Big CEOs Blast Trump," and "Global Temperatures Continue Rising." Schumer said in a formal statement that Trump's decision is a "devastating failure of historic proportions."...
  • Pros and Cons of Trump's Budget and Cons of Dem Demagoguery

    Demagoguery and propaganda are enemies of good governance, but nowhere is that more apparent than in the federal budget, on which Democrats are shameless and too many Republicans are feckless. Sages from American history presciently predicted that our republic would be in jeopardy if voters acquired the power to vote themselves money from the public trough. The U.S. Constitution did not contemplate that the federal government and federal politicians would be able to secure their elective offices through legislative transfers of wealth, but the sordid practice has been with us for decades, and we are paying the price. Politicians can...
  • 2 By Floor: 'STD Tasting' And Other Dem Delights

    If you watch activity on the floors of Congress you may be shocked by some of what you hear. With a slip of the tongue, Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) not only sought continued taxpayer funding for abortion provider Planned Parenthood, but also funding for the organization’s efforts in offering “STD tasting and treatment.” “It’s not about abortion, it’s about something different,” DeFazio said on the House Floor Tuesday. “ It’s about breast exams, pap smears, physical exams, STD tasting and treatment…” STD tasting and treatment? That certainly is “something different.” Thanks anyway, but I’ll take a pass on federally funding...

    Election results? We don’t need no stinkin’ election results. If Barack Obama sounded defiant — as well as out of touch with reality — in his post-election press conference, the rest of Democratic leadership hardly sounds any more aware. Nancy Pelosi signaled full steam ahead for another term as leader of the House Democratic caucus, but Politico reports that some members wonder when Pelosi and her clique will take a hint from voters … but probably not enough of them to matter: No Democrat is gearing up to challenge Nancy Pelosi in public, but behind the scenes some Democrats are...

    As you may have heard, were now only four days away from the 2014 midterms and gubernatorial races mercifully coming to an end, save for a likely runoff in Louisiana. And as youve also heard lately, racefor all the wrong reasonshas become a central theme for the party in blue. Speaking of the Bayou State, its likely-to-be-unemployed-after-said-runoff and current senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) had this to say to Chuck Todd (a good get via hustle by the new MTP moderator, by the way) regarding the reason behind her not inviting President Obama for help on the campaign trail: The South...

    Her new Ad : Texas AG Greg Abbott Doesn't Know If He Would've Defended Bans on Interracial Marriage 50 Years Ago..... San Antonio Express-News reporter Peggy Fikac runs a story in which she attempts to tie Texas Republican governor nominee Greg Abbott to a little misstep made by a fellow Republican who is several states away. The subject is state-level bans on interracial marriage, which were struck down by courts decades ago. They are not relevant today, but reporters like Fikac are attempting to equate them with the current trend of courts striking down bans on same-sex marriage. And Wendy...

    Arkansas Democrat Mark Pryor raised eyebrows and invited scorn in August when he released a television ad tying his Republican opponent to the Ebola crisis. Although the spot was roundly mocked as hyperbolic and flailing, a Democratic group has decided to take Pryor's concept several steps further with a new commercial called 'Republican cuts kill.' It features, well, actual footage of Africans dying of Ebola. Just watch: Republican Cuts Kill Somewhere, MSNBC's Joy Reid is wondering why she didn't think of this attack first. Rebutting the new ad may not be worth my time, but it fails on several levels.  First, it grossly violates...

    U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid ^ | April 4, 2014 | U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid
    Washington, D.C. Nevada Senator Harry Reid made the following statement on the March employment report. According to the Labor Department, the economy added 192,000 jobs in March, while the unemployment rate remains unchanged at 6.7 percent. The department also revised up the figures for February, from 165,000 to 197,000, and private employment levels surpassed for the first time the pre-recession peak.This continued job growth is encouraging, but we need to do more to ensure that everyone in Nevada and across the country has a fair shot at the American Dream. Democrats have proposed common-sense policies to ensure that women...

    People who have no substance in their arguments have only one thing to fall back on. When the positions they have taken, be it on political, societal, or religious issues, have no basis in fact, they can only do one thing. How else can they argue their points, if they have no real argument? Their only option is to use demagoguery to drown out their opponents. Many liberals are masters at demagoguery, but none are as adept at it than President Obama and Harry Reid. To get a sense of what I mean, we need to look at the definition...

    Of course, its an 85 percent black city, Mr. Dyson replied. Its been perceived as a colony of black people who are ringed by suburban white areas that are now going into the city to plunder it. The perception is that there is a massive takeover of resources and materials and properties, basically being occupied. We have to acknowledge that part of this has to be the racial animus that has characterized that city for the last 50-some-odd years, he continued. The service industries hemorrhaged jobs in the inner city, depleted that city of its economic infrastructure and left it...

    Establishment politicians from both major political parties are rushing to defend the NSA and condemn whistleblower Edward Snowden. They are attempting to portray Edward Snowden as a "traitor" and the spooks over at the NSA that are snooping on all of us as "heroes". In fact, many of the exact same politicians that once railed against government spying during the Bush years are now staunchly defending it now that Obama is in the White House. But it isn't just Democrats that are acting shamefully. Large numbers of Republican politicians that love to give speeches about "freedom" and "liberty" are attempting...

    A community activist is challenging Gov. Deval Patricks pick for board chairman at the troubled Roxbury Community College because the new leader is white, but the administration is standing by the appointment. Sadiki Kambon, who said he represents a group called Friends of Roxbury Community College, sent Patrick a letter Monday demanding that Gerald Chertavian, who was named board chairman last week, be replaced by another qualified candidate (Black). Its important for our young people to see someone who looks like us who is the position of leadership in our academic community. We feel that someone from our community has...

    I've felt this speech important enough to make the effort to convert the speech to text for those who don't want to go through the video (It's only 1:21) of the speech by Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-Kan). I've listened to the video many numerous times to assure accuracy of what she says in the video. Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-Kan;) ..that amounts to over 2.5% of the federal budget, find me an American family, a hard working taxpayer who hasn't already cut over 2% of their budget at home without cutting essentials things. There's a fact that says we are going...

    In the Great Sequestration Debate, heres what we know: (a) The president has patrimony of an idea he now characterizes as a brutal and senseless assault on America. (b) The president and his then-chief of staff, Jack Lew, misled the public about their role in giving birth to the sequester idea. (c) House Republicans have twice passed legislation to avoid the sequester cuts with carefully targeted ones, but Senate Democrats refused to act. (d) Mr. Obama has brushed off a Republican plan to give him flexibility to allocate the $85 billion in spending cuts, which makes no sense if the...

    Rather than seethe over President Obama's ongoing sequester-related demagoguery, Crossroads GPS has produced a web ad that duly notes that the cuts were Obama's idea to begin with, and pokes fun at his apocalyptic scare-tactics:   Crossroads GPS: "Obama's Mess"I especially enjoyed the audio clip at the tail end in which Obama laments the exhausting merry-go-round of "manufactured" crises, for which his party is almost exclusively responsible.  And how does the president behave during these standoffs?  New York Times columnist David Brooks -- a long-time admirer of Obama's, all the way down to his sartorial elegance -- identifies a pattern of...

The 7 train runs from Times Square in Manhattan to Flushing in Queens, home of the citys largest ethnic Chinese and Korean communities. The track work suspends service in Manhattan. The MTA has no respect for the Asian people. Its terrible, Catsimatides said.

    President Obama is a uniquely gifted demagogue. An orator of unparalleled skill supported by a gushing media, Obama has yet to present a major policy proposal geared toward solving specific problems. But he has won elections. And he has done so by implying -- over and over and over again -- that his opponents are morally deficient. It is truly astonishing just how thin President Barack Obama's playbook is. Since his re-election, Obama has boiled down that playbook to one play, which he runs with the regularity of a team quarterbacked by Mark Sanchez. It usually involves children. It always...

    Last week, I appeared on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight." For the past few weeks, Morgan had been inviting gun rights defenders ranging from the reasonable to the nutty, and then slamming them by appealing to the memory of the children slain at Sandy Hook. And when I appeared with Morgan, that's precisely what I told him: "What you tend to do is you tend to demonize people who differ from you politically by standing on the graves of the children of Sandy Hook, saying they don't seem to care enough about the dead kids." Morgan could only stammer, "How dare...
