    A former deputy executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) on Friday lashed out at presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders in a post on Medium titled "Go f--- yourself, Bernie." The post was in response to Sanders implying that rival Hillary Clinton was praising President Obama in order to "win support from the African American community where the President is enormously popular." "It’s not just Black people that love Obama. The President is 'enormously popular' among all Democrats. Welcome to the Party," former DCCC official Brandon English wrote in his post. "Do you have any idea how belittling it...

    These tweets are literally posted one on top the other in pro-abortion Democrat Ted Deutch’s Twitter feed: ***(Check out tweets at link)*** The practice of animal crushing is a sexual fetish of the sickest kind. About his introduction of the PACT Act, Rep. Deutch wrote: Too many animals are subjected to unfathomable cruelty and abuse, out of no fault of their own and no recourse for protection. These inhumane acts have no place in our society. House Foreign AffairsYet, incomprehensibly, particularly by comparison – and on the very same day as he introduced his animal cruelty bill – Deutch, pictured...

    CNSNews.com) -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters at her Thursday briefing that President Barack Obama "has been so respectful of the Republicans in Congress." She was responding to a reporter who asked her to react to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Calif.) who said on Wednesday that the “president has been AWOL since Labor Day” and that he “lacks the courage to lead on the economy.” “The fact is this president has been so respectful of the Republicans in Congress," Pelosi said. "He has given them every opportunity for the executive and the legislative branch to work together,...

    At her plea hearing, Webb-Washington, a self-described housing activist serving as head of the Webb-Washington Community Development Corporation, admitted that between March 2009 and May 2009, while seeking to win a seat on the Jersey City council, she accepted three corrupt cash payments totaling $15,000 from a cooperating witness. Webb-Washington admitted that the payments were in exchange for her exercising her future official assistance, as an anticipated member of the city council. Webb- Washington agreed that she would use her future city council position to assist the cooperating witness in obtaining certain development approvals for a purported development project on...
  • Obama argues for stimulus plan before House vote

    WASHINGTON – Looking beyond expected House approval of an $816 billion economic stimulus plan, President Barack Obama said Wednesday the nation is at a "perilous moment" requiring swift and decisive action. "We don't have a moment to spare," Obama said in the East Room of the White House, just hours before a crucial House roll call vote. The measure intended to steady the ricocheting economy was expected to pass, but likely with little of the bipartisan support that Obama wanted. The issue then goes to the Senate where the new president hopes to draw more GOP backing. Obama tempered the...

    Sen. Hillary Clinton presumed the other day to give a think-tank audience a history lesson. But it turns out that the would-be president is herself in need of some tutoring. Appearing before the Center for American Progress, Clinton quoted extensively from President Franklin Roosevelt's speech to the nation two days after the attack on Pearl Harbor. "We are now in this war. We are all in it, all the way. Every man, woman and child is a partner in the most tremendous undertaking of our American history," FDR told an anxious nation that had just entered World War II. Added...

    Some of the "Fighting Tigers" are fighting mad at Governor Blanco. As noted in the press, there are unofficial reports that LSU Tigers are going to the Rose bowl. After this was announced, Governor Blanco began making phone calls that haven't exactly impressed LSU fans. Several fans have approached THE DEAD PELICAN expressing a mixture of outrage and ridicule, claiming that Blanco is trying to take credit for something that isn't her doing. Other LSU fans haven't forgotten about Blanco's tail gate party for ULL, at the same time that university was playing the LSU tigers. According to a statement...

    When Sen. Barack Obama slipped into Sen. Robert Byrd's Capitol office one day last year, he was seeking counsel from an elder who had been in the Senate since before Obama was born. Senators these days, Byrd cautioned the young Illinois Democrat, become fixated on the White House. "I remember the advice," Obama said matter-of-factly in an interview with The Associated Press last week. "The importance of senators staying in the Senate." Obama has been in the Senate less than two years. Now he is thinking of running for president. Presumptuous? "In a country of 300 million people," he said...

    It’s not Hillary’s fault that she tells lies — it’s her parents. At least, that’s what Hillary Clinton wants you to believe. You have to hand it to the Clintons — when they’re caught lying they can spin it into a nice story about their childhood. How sweet, in a pathologically deceptive kind of way. For years, Hillary Clinton was going around claiming that she was named after the first person to reach the summit of Mt. Everest, Sir Edmund Hillary. This has been reported as “fact” as late as a week ago in the New York Times. It didn’t...

    NEW YORK David Corn, co-author with Michael Isikoff of the new book "Hubris" that has made so much news lately, today heatedly denied what he called an old and false charge in the Wall Street Journal that he -- not Robert Novak -- outed Valerie Plame as a CIA operative. In the Journal on Friday, Victoria Toensing, the attorney, wrote in a column, "The first journalist to reveal Ms. Plame was 'covert' was David Corn, on July 16, 2003, two days after Mr. Novak's column. The latter never wrote, because he did not know and it was not so, that...

    Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., got a little hot under the collar about Rush Limbaugh's analysis today suggesting Republicans are better friends for Israel than Democrats. "Rush Limbaugh s ignorance and willingness to divide Americans knows no bounds," Kerry said in a formal statement on his website just hours after the show ended. "His latest statement about Israel is beyond offensive to all of us who have fought to protect Israel in the face of enemies committed to its destruction." What did Limbaugh say that got Kerry so bent out of shape? Limbaugh said the most frequent guest in the Clinton...

    Brett Pfeffer, a former legislative assistant to U. S. Rep. William Jefferson of Louisiana, was sentenced May 27 by a judge in Alexandria to eight years in prison for conspiring to bribe the embattled Louisiana Democrat. U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III told Pfeffer that his sentence could be reduced significantly for cooperation with investigators. But, “it would be difficult to overstate the seriousness of this offense,” Ellis said at Pfeffer’s hearing. In January, Pfeffer, 37, pleaded guilty in Federal Court in Alexandria to conspiracy to commit bribery and aiding and abetting the solicitation of bribes by a member of...

    While Pennsylvania Democratic Congressman John Murtha has ascended to the national stage as one of the most vocal critics of President Bush's handling of the war in Iraq, he has also long downplayed the controversy and bitterness surrounding the two Purple Hearts he was awarded for military service in Vietnam. Murtha is a retired marine and was the first Vietnam combat veteran elected to Congress. Since 1967, there have been at least three different accounts of the injuries that purportedly earned Murtha his Purple Hearts. Those accounts also appear to conflict with the limited military records that are available, and...

    A Cambridge city councilor who caused a multiple car crash in December will not face charges, despite reports from witnesses who said he was drunk. NewsCenter 5's Janet Wu reported that a clerk magistrate ruled Friday that Boston police did not follow proper procedure at the crash scene, and no charges will be filed. Galluccio arrived with his two high-powered, politically-connected attorneys leading the way. Cameras and most reporters were barred from the hearing, but Clerk Magistrate Daniel Hogan confirmed that on Dec. 18, following a five-car crash, which Galluccio admits he caused, the Cambridge city councilor was so belligerent...

    Those who disagree with the Bush administration's policies in Iraq face the same scornful charges that they are unpatriotic as Sen. John Kerry did 35 years ago when he spoke out against the Vietnam War, the Massachusetts Democrat said Saturday. "I have come here today to reaffirm that it was right to dissent in 1971 from a war that was wrong. And to affirm that it is both a right and an obligation for Americans today to disagree with a President who is wrong, a policy that is wrong, and a war in Iraq that weakens the nation," Kerry said...
