  • Democrat Strategist on CNN Said 'We Don't Need White People Leading Democrats Now'

    When asked by two CNN shills who she thought should be the next Chair of the DNC, democrat statagist, and former Bernie Sanders spokeswoman, Symone Sanders said 'we don't need white people leading the democrats now.' Instead, she felt someone of a darker persuasion should lead them, in order to best represent 'diversity.' Apparently, diversity doesn't include all races -- just the ones that aren't white -- according to Symone. [Video of statement in Article] If you recall, Symone mocked the Trump supporter that was viciously beaten by thugs -- saying 'oh my god poor white people,' when asked about...

    During a shouting matching Thursday night between top aides of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the President-elect’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway summed up a key reason for why my Democratic Party lost – and will likely continue to lose. “There’s a difference for voters between what offends you and what affects you.” To understand what she meant, look to the recent developments in Indiana. Millions of voters in the Rust Belt are in awe as 1,100 of their fellow blue-collar workers at Carrier narrowly missed being laid off. Instead of training Mexican replacements, these Hoosiers are celebrating an American paycheck....

    In the aftermath of another devastating electoral loss, Democrats have not learned their lessons very well. In the U.S. Senate, Democrats elected 66-year old Chuck Schumer of New York as their Minority Leader, replacing the outgoing Harry Reid of Nevada. Schumer will offer more East Coast liberal leadership to a party that desperately needs to move ideologically to the center and geographically to the country’s heartland. In an even worse move, House Democrats re-elected super liberal Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco as their Minority Leader. Pelosi has been leading House Democrats since 2003 and has been at the helm...

    The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced new workplace regulations requiring employers to accommodate the languages spoken by prospective hires and current employees or “face sanctions including fines and/or revocation of permission to operate.” Oddly, the EEOC cited “the growing diversity of the nation’s workforce as the justification for the new rule.” Under the new regulations requiring employees to speak or understand English is now deemed unlawful discrimination. “Employees have the right to communicate in a language of their own choosing,” EEOC Chairperson Jenny Yang argued. “It is the employer’s responsibility to learn the language of his employees or hire...

    Do Illegal Votes Decide Elections? There’s no way to know. But the evidence suggests that significant numbers of noncitizens cast ballots. By Hans von Spakovsky and John Fund Donald Trump’s claim that illegal voting may have cost him a popular-vote majority has touched off outrage. Widespread voter fraud, the media consensus suggests, isn’t possible. But there is a real chance that significant numbers of noncitizens and others are indeed voting illegally, perhaps enough to make up the margin in some elections. There’s no way of knowing for sure. The voter-registration process in almost all states runs on the honor system....

    Democratic donors stung by Hillary Clinton’s upset loss in the presidential race feel like they just set their money on fire. The sore feelings are a huge problem for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which is trying to rebuild its image and reinvigorate a defeated party in time for challenging midterm elections in 2018. It’s also a worry for top liberal activists as they prepare for war with President-elect Donald Trump and a GOP Congress that is hell-bent on rolling back President Obama’s accomplishments. Many Democratic donors still feel burned by the party’s 2016 election losses and what they see...

    Wisconsin Representative Sean Duffy (R-WI) went on with Tucker Carlson tonight to discuss the recount in Wisconsin.   Duffy said Democrats and far left Green Party supporters are stalling the recount in Dane County Wisconsin, where Madison is located. The county is holding a hand recount. The recount will not be completed by the deadline on December 20th. Therefore, according to Rep. Duffy, the state will quite possibly be forced to forfeit their electoral votes.   This was the plan all along. Democrats knew they couldn’t make up 20,000 votes. But they also knew if they stalled on the...

Ellison was the keynote speaker at the event.

Reason for the panic -- the dawning realization, repressed and often unrecognized though it may be, that Donald Trump may even a be a good president, possibly a great one. Then what? If anything could cause panic among liberals, progressives, and the media (apologies for the redundancy), that's it. And Trump has certainly hit the ground running with more "vigah" -- this time to channel an...

Stein alleges that irregularities and the potential for hacking into scanning devices call into question the results. The Michigan recount could start as early as Friday....

But Democrats should not assume that the Trump administration's incompetence will automatically result in a Democratic wave in 2018. Remember, Democrats are in their weakest position in national and state government since before the Great Depression. So what should Democrats do? Take a page from the GOP playbook and obstruct everything.

Lot of moral preening and leftist activities to continue to make conservatives fearful or embarrassed to support the causes they believe in, not because there is a problem with the ideas and causes, but because conservatives are fearful of physical harm or property damage. This needs to stop and conservatives need to seize the narrative, they way that Trump did throughout the pre-election cycle. For example Barney Frank ( and why is he still above ground with a microphone?) just claimed that Trump thought that Scalia...

    Almost 100,000 Somali Refugees Admitted to US Since 9/11; 99.6% Muslim By Patrick Goodenough | September 19, 2016 (CNSNews.com) – Almost 100,000 Somali refugees have been resettled in the United States since 9/11, including 8,619 so far during the current fiscal year. The largest number – some 16 percent of the total over the past 15 years – have been resettled in Minnesota, home to the nation’s biggest Somali-American community. Of the 97,046 Somali refugees admitted to the U.S. since the fall of 2001, 99.6 percent were Muslim, and 28,836 (29.7 percent) were males between the ages of 14 and...

    Democratic Party, which used to identify with and support America’s working men and women, has morphed into a party aligned with wealthy donors, celebrities, Wall Street, and corporate fat cats I will only do what is right for our country, which I love.—President-Elect Donald J. Trump “Crippled America” (p. 90) Do you not think an Angel rides in the Whirlwind and directs this Storm? —John Page (1743-1808) Letter to Thomas Jefferson, 1776 I fully expect sporadic spasms of the globalist movement’s death throes to continue inflicting posthumous damage for some time. Yet, like John Page during the 1st American Revolution...

    Black Lives Matter: We Must ‘Come To The Defense’ Of Castro Amber Randall Former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro’s legacy provides many lessons to learn from, according to Black Lives Matter. After Castro’s death Friday, Black Lives Matter released an article titled, “Lessons from Fidel: Black Lives Matter and the Transition of El Comandante.” “And there are lessons that we must revisit and heed as we pick up the mantle in changing our world, as we aspire to build a world rooted in a vision of freedom and the peace that only comes with justice. It is the lessons that we...
  • The Democrats’ real strategy in launching recounts

    The recount in Wisconsin, and coming ones in Michigan and Pennsylvania will not change the outcomes in any of the states.  No recount ever changes thousands of votes.  I do not think that is the purpose. The recounts, if done by hand, which can be demanded, may take longer than the last day for completing official counts in a state and directing Electoral College voters.  If all 3 states miss the deadline, Trump is at 260, Hillary at 232.  No one hits 270.   Then this goes to Congress, where the House voting 1 vote per state elects Trump, and...

    By Election Day, ambitious Democrats had already resigned themselves to an eight-year wait for their chance in the national spotlight. Hillary Clinton was an overwhelming favorite against Donald Trump and, assuming she won, running a primary challenge against her in four years would be a fool’s errand. Then Clinton lost. Although this most stunning upset in modern presidential history has produced (and will produce) a thousand aftershocks, one of the most unlikely and important is that the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 is now open. That opening is made all the more remarkable by the fact that there is simply...

    The Ohio congressman who is vying to topple longtime House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said Sunday that his colleagues understand that regaining the majority requires a “new message and a new messenger,” someone who is able to connect with voters in the middle of the country who abandoned the party in this month’s elections. Rep. Tim Ryan said Pelosi isn’t a shoo-in for re-election, given the “consternation in our caucus” following election results that handed the White House to Republicans, who also kept control of the House and Senate. Ryan said he has a “shot to win” when House Democrats...

    The Anthony trial of 1873 helped answer the important question of whether women as "citizens" under the recently adopted Fourteenth Amendment were entitled, as one of the "privileges and immunities" that came with citizenship, to vote. The answer given by prim and conservative Justice Ward Hunt will surprise few, but the trial also shows Hunt with his hands full, not quite knowing how to shut up his feisty defendant. Read now about what "Aunt Susan" described in her diary as "the greatest outrage in judicial history!"
