  • If Confederate Statues Are 'Reprehensible', Why Didn't Nancy Pelosi ....

    FULL TITLE: If Confederate Statues Are 'Reprehensible', Why Didn't Nancy Pelosi Remove Them When She Had the Power as Speaker? Last week House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi demanded Speaker Paul Ryan remove all confederate statues from the U.S. Capitol. In a statement, Pelosi said the statues have "always been reprehensible" and insisted they be taken down, despite the Capitol acting as a museum for all kinds of American history. “The halls of Congress are the very heart of our democracy. The statues in the Capitol should embody our highest ideals as Americans, expressing who we are and who we aspire...
  • Mark Steyn: The Left Is Making an Organized Attempt to Say If You Don’t Vote Democrat, You’re a Nazi

    Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends Weekend,” conservative commentator Mark Steyn argued the actual goal of some of those among counter-protesters at events held to promote free speech or the preservation of some historical monuments wasn’t against the real focus of those events. Instead, he said it was to label those that don’t vote Democrat or that voted for Trump as “Nazi.”

    Paul Sperry at the New York Post gives an update on Imran Awan, the former IT staffer of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL). According to Sperry’s sources, Awan and up to four other individuals are being investigated for potentially stealing sensitive information on U.S. lawmakers and selling it to foreign governments. “Some 80 offices were potentially compromised,” he writes. From the New York Post: Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say. What started out 16 months ago as a scandal...
  • Democrats move to formally censure Trump over Charlottesville

    WASHINGTON House Democrats are introducing a formal resolution to denounce President Donald Trump for saying that “both sides” are to blame for a violent encounter between white supremacists and neo-Nazis and the activists who showed up to protest them. While the censure is unlikely to see traction in the GOP-led House, it serves as a rebuke to Trump and mirrors some of the Republican criticism the president has faced for his remarks. “A president of the United States cannot support neo-Nazis. It’s just beyond the pale,” said Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., a member of the House Judiciary Committee. “I hope...

    The Democratic Party fancies itself as the party of the future, but one of its top stars was born when gasoline was only 10 cents a gallon. California Congresswoman Maxine Waters turns 79 years old today. It’s been quite a year for Mad Max, who is darling of the “Resist Trump” crowd and one of the Democrats’ newest hopes. While Waters was yukking it up with the ladies on “The View” in early August, she said after Democrats are done impeaching President Trump, they’re going to go after “Putin” next.

    Last week the respected left-liberal magazine The Nation published an explosive article that details in great depth the findings of a new report — authored in large part by former U.S. intelligence officers — which claims to present forensic evidence that the Democratic National Committee was not hacked by the Russians in July 2016. Instead, the report alleges, the DNC suffered an insider leak, conducted in the Eastern time zone of the United States by someone with physical access to a DNC computer. This report also claims there is no apparent evidence that the hacker known as Guccifer 2.0 —...

    Charlottesville is what happens when the Left empowers extremists.In Dallas, a black nationalist activist shot and killed 5 police officers at a Black Lives Matter anti-police rally. Instead of condemning BLM, Barack Obama defended a racist hate group whose role model is Assata Shakur, a wanted black nationalist cop killer, at the funerals of the murdered officers. The left killed civil rights and replaced it with black nationalism. The racial supremacism of black nationalism that killed those officers is everywhere. Ta-Nehisi Coates and Ibram X.

  • Hearts and minds changing, not the political process, is the answer to racial divisions

    08/13/2017 11:22:08 AM PDT · by Bigtigermike · 26 replies
    If hearts don't change then nothing changes. Many in Washington D.C. tend to think foolishly that they are the seat of power in this country and therefore their on will and/or legislation acts will exact change. They can be no more wrong. The political process ultimately is not the answer to racial strife and division in this country. In fact, it's politics that often exasperates and encourages division because it's much easier to divide and conquer different groups and win them to ones side in politics than seeking harmony. Everybody has agendas, from Dems to Republicans to the media to...

    Former President Obama will re-emerge on the national scene this fall, though Democrats expect him to do so with caution. One aide describes the beginning of a "delicate dance" that aims to put Obama in the Democratic fray, but prevent him from remaining the face of the party. Aides will huddle with Obama in the coming weeks to plot out what shape the former president's fall schedule will take. Advisers close to him say that while he will play an active role in helping his party rebuild, much of his work will be behind the scenes. He is likely to...

    Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) wants Congress to pass the Gang of Eight’s comprehensive amnesty bill when he returns to the Senate after getting treatments for brain cancer. According to The Arizona Republic, McCain, before leaving Washington to get cancer treatments in Arizona, reportedly spoke to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) about joining forces again to pass the “Gang of Eight” bill. After joining Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) to defeat the GOP’s “skinny repeal” of Obamacare, McCain, who has always wanted to be known as a straight-talking independent, was lionized by Democrats and the legacy media,...

    There they go again. Hillary Clinton was a two-time loser. Weirdly, her people are still in charge of the Democratic Party. Clintonista militant moderates haven't learned a thing from Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump -- so they're trying to sell Democratic voters on more of the same. Remember what happened when Clinton ran on the whole never mind your crappy low wage job, vote for me because first woman president bit? Now we're supposed to get excited about center-right California Senator Kamala Harris because she ticks off two boxes on the identity politics hit parade. Remember the ugly optics when...

    Why are Democrats protecting the Beltway smear-specialist firm Fusion GPS? Specifically, why are the party’s senators supporting Fusion chief Glenn Simpson in his refusal to say who paid to get that infamous President Trump-smearing “Russian dossier” drawn up? As The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberly A. Strassel notes, Dem senators even passed on the chance to publicly question Jared Kushner and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, rather than also expose Simpson to public questioning. Maybe Democrats simply didn’t want anything to mess up their “collusion” narrative. Or perhaps they fear their own party used Fusion to commission the hit. She’s...

    While history points to likely Democratic victories in the upcoming midterm elections, the numbers show a very different story that does not bode well for the left’s chances in peeling back the right’s hold on power next year. Five recent poll numbers (yes, I know, polls can only mean so much and are many times, wrong, though other times speak to very real trends underway) and recent fundraising statistics reveal a troubling reality for the Democrats. First off, 43% of Americans approve of Trump’s handling of the economy, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll put out last Sunday. Jobs...

    Dozens of President Trump's nominees are waiting for their confirmations to move forward as Democrats embark on "historic obstructionism," according to several Republican lawmakers. Yet, the GOP isn't the only one to have noticed the maddening delays. The New York Times is now reporting on the brand new "delaying tactic" the Democrats are employing to deny Trump his nominees. Here's how the tedious process is unfolding. Here is what is happening: Democrats are requiring that Republicans check all the procedural boxes on most nominees, even those they intend to eventually support. That requires the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, Republican...

    There is a running conspiracy regarding the astonishing number of people who have mysteriously ended up dead — either through odd accidents or “suicide” — after becoming involved with or threatening to expose the alleged misdeeds of former President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Another seemingly suspicious death can now be added to that already extensive list, as a former Haitian government official reportedly killed himself just prior to delivering testimony that was expected to be highly critical of the Clinton Foundation and the disbursement of the funds raised in the aftermath of the...

    Congressman Brad Sherman has become the first to formally introduce an impeachment filing against President Donald Trump over his dealings with former FBI chief James Comey. So it begins, but Senator Charles Grassley demands to know if Donald Trump Jr. was setup, while meeting with Russian lawyer. The Los Angeles-area politician described the nation’s position as “dangerous” and said in a statement: “The evidence we have is sufficient to move forward now. And the national interest requires that we do so.” He went on to say, “Recent disclosures by Donald Trump Jr indicate that Trump’s campaign was eager to receive...

    Twenty-four House Democrats are now backing the bill. A Democratic congressman has introduced legislation aimed at creating a congressional oversight commission that could declare President Donald Trump incapacitated, prompting his removal from office under the 25th Amendment of the United States Constitution. Twenty-four House Democrats support the bill, which was introduced by Rep. Jamie Raskin, D. Md., including the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich. Former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla.,has co-sponsored the bill.

    Scheduled appearance by key witness Carter Page canceled House Democrats are continuing to block testimony from about a dozen witnesses who sought to appear before the intelligence oversight panel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election. Congressional officials said one of the key witnesses, former informal adviser to the Trump campaign Carter Page, was scheduled to testify at a closed hearing of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. But Democrats on the committee blocked the testimony, asserting they needed more time to prepare.

    Full title - Just One Day Before GOP Congressman Attacked, 'The Wire' Creator David Simon Called For Violence: 'Pick Up A Goddam Brick' "That's all that's left to you." A crazed lefty of the Bernie-variety opened fire on several GOP congressman in Virginia who had been practicing for an upcoming charity baseball game against Democrats on Wednesday morning, wounding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), an aide, and several police officers. Did the shooting occur in a vacuum or did the openly violent rhetoric of prominent leftists inspire his malevolent behavior? Just six months have passed since President Trump's ascendancy...
