  • Democrats Accuse Trump of Treason [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 31 July 2016 | John Semmens
    The Wikileaks release of 20,000 Democratic National Committee emails show how Party officials rigged the presidential primary campaign to favor Hillary Clinton over Sen Bernie Sanders (S-Vt) confirmed what many have suspected for the last six months. DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (Fla) was quick to initiate a narrative blaming Russia for hacking into the DNC's server. "That a foreign government with a long-running enmity to America could so easily break into confidential computer files of the Democratic Party is a matter of serious concern," she alleged. "The public exposure of our private communications could influence the outcome of the...

    Much about the internal operations of the Democratic National Committee has been revealed this week in light of the Wikileaks email drops, which resulted in the ousting of DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. But of particular interest to North Carolinians are the committee’s eye-opening communications over the issue of the state’s controversial HB2 “bathroom bill.” In response to North Carolina Democratic Party Comms Director Dave Miranda forwarding an email to the DNC regarding reports that the state had lost jobs and millions in revenue as a result of the passage of HB2, one DNC official replied, “Awesome.” In another email,...
  • Court refuses to drop corruption charges against Menendez

    The Hill ^ | July 29, 2016 | Harper Neidig
    A federal appeals court on Friday refused to drop corruption charges against Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), according to The Associated Press. Menendez's attorneys had argued that his actions on behalf of a campaign donor were protected because he's a sitting senator, but the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals disagreed. Prosecutors allege that Menendez received bribes from Salomon Melgen, an ophthalmologist and wealthy Florida donor, in the form of campaign donations and extravagant gifts. In return, Menendez allegedly set up meetings with government officials to arrange favors for Melgen. Both men pleaded not guilty last year. In February, Menendez’s...
  • How Democrats became the party of ‘safe socialism’

    07/29/2016 7:48:33 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 20 replies
    The Democratic Party has perhaps never been so radical or so conventional. The Democrats are now to the left of President Obama and desperately trying to placate the teary-eyed, obstreperous, wholly unrealistic shock troops of the Bernie Sanders Revolution, yet they’re also portraying themselves as the party of sobriety and traditional political norms. This year, Democrats want to fight the man and be the man, and running against Donald Trump, they might manage the feat. The Sanders delegates — by all appearances, the kind of people who typically work the giant puppets at street protests rather than serve as delegates...

    This entire speech presented a fictional reality, which makes perfect sense at a convention being held for the purpose of nominating the biggest liar ever to see the presidency Earlier today I talked about how the media will sometimes take their cues from Democrats. That can work the other way around, too. When the media establishes a dishonest narrative, a clever Democrat will not only run with the narrative but build on it. That’s basically what Obama did last night in his speech to the DNC. While Donald Trump’s acceptance speech last Thursday night was all about the problems America...

This is the night where she has her latest and best chance to make her case to undecided voters, clarify her vision for America, and cut into her massively high unfavorable ratings. Finally, the attention at the Democratic convention and in the news media will be on her, her message, and not just endorsements and speeches from powerful allies like Mike Bloomberg and President Barack Obama. Good luck with that. We already know who's going to dominate the headlines tomorrow morning in the end. And he happens...

Paul Jones, Jr., 60, was at his neighborhood bar Winston's Place near E. 131st Street and Miles Avenue around 6 p.m. Monday, talking politics with a friend. Jones, an Air Force Vietnam War veteran, just happens to be a staunch Donald Trump supporter -- something that didn't sit well with a man nearby.

    Carol Swain, a professor of political science and law at Vanderbilt University, is one of the stars of Dinesh D’Souza's new movie, :Hillary’s America," which examined in detail the historical racism of the Democratic Party. It's a story that hasn't been told by reporters from the liberal media who keep repeating the mantra that Democrats represent minorities, the poor, the downtrodden and the vulnerable. The movie highlights the fact that Democratic President Woodrow Wilson attended a screening of the pro-KKK film, "The Birth of a Nation," in the White House itself.

The Left is now going after the Republican nominee with brass knuckles.

Hacked emails dumped online by WikiLeaks had confirmed the worst suspicions of Sen. Bernie Sanders’s supporters. The Democratic establishment had been working all along to defeat their man, even discussing whether to plant stories that Mr. Sanders, who is Jewish, doesn’t believe in God. After Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced her resignation, she was rewarded by being named an “honorary chair” for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Sanders supporters were hardly satisfied. On Monday the Bernie Bunch...

A week later, Democrats in Philadelphia agreed about the peril. Where they differed, though, was the cause. “Donald Trump, with all his rhetoric, will literally make us less safe,” said Vice President Joe Biden. “No major party nominee in the history of the station has ever known less or...

    The clock is counting down toward an important decision for Maryland’s economic future, namely whether to allow hydraulic fracturing, commonly known as fracking, to drill for natural gas in the state. Over a year ago, legislation that blocked fracking for another two years became law without Gov. Larry Hogan’s signature. That law barred the state from issuing drilling permits until October 2017 and required the Department of the Environment to adopt new regulations by October 2016. The passage of this law effectively delayed any decision on fracking until next year. To recap: the Marcellus Shale is a geological formation found...

But the bid to reunite the coalition of black and Hispanic voters who were instrumental in Mr. Obama’s two White House wins ran into powerful headwinds Tuesday from the Black Lives Matter movement. Black protesters took to streets with calls to shut down the convention just as Mrs. Clinton received the nomination and made history as the first...
