  • How Does a Straight White Male Democrat Run for President? (very carefully)

    Of the nine candidates officially running in the Democratic presidential primary, only one is a heterosexual white man. And that guy, former Rep. John Delaney, generally polls somewhere between zero and 1 percent. But of the 17 Democrats reportedly still pondering a presidential bid, all but one is a straight white man. It’s hard to chalk that up to coincidence. Clearly, the women and minority candidates sensed that the water is warm for them, and the straight white men appear to be worried that this is just not their year. CNN’s demographic number cruncher Ron Brownstein noted recently that the...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Jussie Smollett paid two brothers to stage an attack against him, directed them to buy items used in the alleged assault and actually rehearsed it with them, sources say. Sources say at least one of the brothers bought the rope used in the incident at Smollett’s request. The sources also say the “Empire” actor paid for the rope, which was purchased at the Crafty Beaver Hardware Store in the Ravenswood neighborhood the weekend of Jan. 25. The brothers, who were questioned by police this week before being released, were paid $3,500 before leaving for Nigeria and were...

    Almost everyone that goes out to visit one of our major cities on the west coast has a similar reaction. Those that must live among the escalating decay are often numb to it, but most of those that are just in town for a visit are absolutely shocked by all of the trash, human defecation, crime and public drug use that they encounter. Once upon a time, our beautiful western cities were the envy of the rest of the world, but now they serve as shining examples of America’s accelerating decline. The worst parts of our major western cities literally...

    This is a compilation of the many, many things that American Democrats (often radical totalitarian communists wearing the mantle of “progressive liberals”) want to ban. This is a running tabulated list that originated from an earlier post about busybodies. There, I argued that Social Justice Warriors (SJW) was just another name for a busybody. This is a set aside list tabulated by request. It supersedes the extensive list on an earlier post about busybodies. Remember, boys and girls, all bans are a restriction on freedom. Go ahead and shake your head in disbelief. These people are friggin’ lunatics. The List...

    Gov. Phil Murphy continues to maintain he did not know about sexual assault allegations made against Al Alvarez when Alvarez was working in a senior role for Murphy's campaign. Members of the Democrat-led committee openly question the truth of the governor's assertion, and have become increasingly frustrated by a lack of answers and accountability for how the situation was handled. They can't even get a straight answer about the most basic question: Who hired Alvarez? ---SNIP-- After Tuesday's hearing wrapped up, committee members could not contain both their frustration and the feeling that people are just not telling the truth....

    Virginia politics descended further into chaos on Wednesday, and Democrats in the capital grew more dismayed by the possibility that a trio of scandals involving their top three statewide officials had laid waste to years of work building up the Democratic Party in the commonwealth. The controversies have created a pseudo-standoff between scandal-plagued Gov. Ralph Northam, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax and Attorney General Mark Herring, all of whom are fighting to hang on to their jobs as public outrage grows around each of them. None of them wants to resign first, creating a scenario where all of them could hold...

    Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring (D) resigned as co-chair of the Democratic Attorneys General Association Wednesday following the revelation that he wore blackface during his college years. “Virginia AG Herring offered to step aside as co-chair and the committee accepted,” a DACA spokesperson said in a statement. In a meeting with black lawmakers earlier Wednesday, Herring admitted to wearing “brown makeup” as part of a costume to resemble rapper Kurtis Blow. “It sounds ridiculous even now writing it. But because of our ignorance and glib attitudes – and because we did not have an appreciation for the experiences and perspectives...

    New Jersey has become the second state in the nation after California to adopt a law that requires schools to teach about LGBT history in a move hailed by civil rights groups as a step toward inclusion and fairness. Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat who promised to promote equality for gay and transgender people during his campaign, signed the bill Thursday. Among those celebrating the news was Jaime Bruesehoff, of Vernon, whose 12-year-old transgender child Rebekah spoke in support of the bill in Trenton in December. “This bill is so important for our young people,” Bruesehoff said. “They need to...

    Democrats are all over the map this year. They've got a Wall Street billionaire, an anti-Wall Street crusader, a California prosecutor, a Midwestern populist, a New England socialist and a guy from Texas on a road trip. They've got populists and capitalists and progressives and moderates. They've got former Republicans and established statesmen. Some want a single-payer health care system. Some want a private system. Some want both. These people who either are or may run in a primary against each other share little other than a D next to their name and the urgent desire to defeat Donald Trump...

    A series of prominent Democrats demanded Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's resignation on Friday, excoriating him for appearing in a racist yearbook photo showing one person dressed in blackface and another in the KKK's signature white hood and robes. The calls came from a number of 2020 presidential candidates, members of Congress and prominent liberal organizations, all of whom said Northam's apology on the issue was not enough. The NAACP also called for Northam to leave office. Those calls, however, were not echoed by Virginia Democrats, including Sens. Tim Kaine and Mark Warner. Both said they were shocked and offended by...

    Dawn Marie Addiego has served in the state Senate since 2010. (Courtesy) Republicans' power in New Jersey just shrunk again. In a rare and unexpected move, longtime Republican state Sen. Dawn Marie Addiego announced Monday she is switching parties and becoming a Democrat. “As gridlock in Washington dominates the news, it has become increasingly clear that in order to effect change you have to be part of the discussion and not on the outside looking in,” Addiego, who has represented South Jersey’s 8th District since 2010, said in a statement. “The people of the 8th District did not elect me...

    By using 'The Wall' as bait, wedge issues as a weapon and the shutdown as leverage, POTUS Trump is forcing The Democrats to construct walls within their own Party. As REX explains, Trump's strategy is to exploit the enemy's poor leaders to foment division, perhaps even civil war within the Democrat camp - and they don't even know it. by Rex Thu, January 24, 2019 Let's start by considering this timeline:On 11 December, 2018, POTUS Trump launched a surprise attack on Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, in the Oval Office. The issue in contention was the urgent need to build...

    The ‘Ethics’ of Trump’s Border Wall A wall would cause harm to immigrants and refugees, all of whom are equal to us in the eyes of God. Is the border wall ethical? President Trump has suggested the wall is moral and those who oppose it immoral. His critics claim the opposite. To answer this, we have to consider its effect on humans. What harm could a border wall cause to immigrants and refugees, all of whom are equal to us in the eyes of God? Some people who cross the border are in desperate search of work to support their...

Here is what the evidence, presented below, proves: Rashida Tlaib registered to vote at a false address as she embarked on her first political campaign. “Registering to vote using a false address” is one of a number of crimes that fall into the voter fraud category....
