  • Michelle Obama Says Republicans Are 'All Men, All White'

    Michelle Obama ignored people like Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), and Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah) when she said that Republican members of Congress are "all men, all white." And she greatly minimized them, and all the other minority and/or female members of the GOP caucus, when she said, "On the other side... some women, some people of color." But she didn't even stop there; the former first lady implied that this dynamic of right-wingers being only white men was a paradigm throughout the U.S. and throughout many industries.

    On your long road to acceptance, you're getting awfully annoying Shut up! Your liberal whining and complaining are divisive and sickening A psychologist reminded me on my radio show that the first three levels of grief are denial, anger and finally acceptance. The Democrats, flaming liberals, regular liberals and college snowflakes haven’t gotten past denial and anger combined. That’s the only explanation for irrational attempts to de-legitimize Trump’s presidency.

    The Federalist ^ | February 16, 2016 | Georgi Boorman
    America needs a leader who has proven he will execute their priorities in service of controlling government so the people can shine. Ted Cruz is that. The media continue to spin the narrative that Ted Cruz is "divisive," implying he wouldn't be an effective president. Radio host Michael Medved, whom I respect and grew up listening to, commented just the other day that people like Cruz never become president. He said the hypothetical of a Cruz presidency was "interesting," but Medved wasn't convinced Cruz could be effective given the anger he tends to inspire in long-time politicians. I respectfully disagree...

    But for all the promises of an engaged 2016, there's no getting around the fact that in just one year and eight days, Obama must cede the power to protect what he sees as his greatest achievements, including health care reform, staying out of Middle East quagmires and advancing social justice issues such as gay rights and economic prosperity. There is no doubt that Obama has an awful lot riding on Clinton capturing the White House -- although he has also met with her left-wing rival [fellow left winger], Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, the White House said Monday. A Democratic...

    The late Saul Alinsky, the father of the community-organizing model that inspired both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, would be delighted. The man who championed moral relativism in tearing down the establishment (“In war, the end justifies almost any means”) is calling the tune of the Democratic party on voting issues. Last March, President Obama rhapsodized about what would happen under mandatory voting: “If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country.” Obama once served as the lawyer for the disgraced and defunct voter-registration group ACORN, and he is still toeing its line. Then last...

    The news media “absolutely” overstates the risks of terrorism because stories about things like climate change aren’t “sexy” and don’t drive ratings, President Obama said in an interview published Monday. “What's the famous saying about local newscasts, right? If it bleeds, it leads, right?” Obama told Vox. “You show crime stories and you show fires, because that's what folks watch, and it's all about ratings. And, you know, the problems of terrorism and dysfunction and chaos, along with plane crashes and a few other things, that's the equivalent when it comes to covering international affairs. “ Obama said there was...

    A recent poll by The Pew Research Center is reporting that America is more divided than ever. According to the poll, 66% of consistently conservative Republicans think the Democrats’ policies threaten the nation’s well-being and half (50%) of consistently liberal Democrats say Republican policies jeopardize the nation’s well-being. With everything that is going on in our country, all Americans should be united. So, what is it that has us divided? The issues that we are facing effects all Americans on both sides of the political fencefrom foreign policy disasters, wide-open borders to the economy.

    Obama laments entrenched power at Ohio State commencement By REID J. EPSTEIN | 5/5/13 1:24 PM EDT President Barack Obama is the most powerful man in the world, but he still laments that there is so much still out of his control. Obama told Ohio State University graduates Sunday that it will be their responsibility to make the world a better place, because forces aligned against them still hold substantial power. The dour commencement address touched on Obama’s familiar we’re-all-together theme and included shots at his regular bogeymen: Wall Street, an obstinate Congress and, of course, the press. “As you’ve...

    The debate inspired total panic on the left. For a campaign whose motto is “Forward”, there was enough political side-stepping in the post-debate review on the left to make viewers wonder if they had accidentally tuned into the Discovery special on Christmas Island’s crab mating migration. Probably the best sour grapes line of the evening was that the president didn’t have as much time to prepare, on account of being president and all… When the tears of sympathy stopped flowing, I got to thinking about what Obama might have done to get ready for the debate. Where in Obama’s 24/7...

    Top Obama political strategist David Axelrod took aim at surging GOP hopeful Rick Santorum Wednesday, painting him as a fringe candidate unlikely to appeal to voters after closer inspection. Speaking on CBS This Morning on Wednesday, Axelrod said the former Pennsylvania senator's economic policies were unlikely to win over voters. "I think when people really examine his economic policies, I don't think the average working person in this economy is going to look at his economic policies and say 'yeah, that's the ticket for me. That offers great hope for me.'" Axelrod said.

    The New American ^ | Wednesday, 01 February 2012 | Selwyn Duke
    President G.W. Bush might very well have been sincere when he proclaimed, “I’m a uniter, not a divider,” but it nevertheless was boilerplate political rhetoric. Barack Obama, too, campaigned on the idea of uniting our nation. It’s an interesting fantasy. But the reality is quite different. Recent polls show that if we’re to measure a President’s unitive capacity based on how divided opinion on him is, Obama is the most polarizing Commander-in-Chief in history. Writes The Washington Post, “For 2011, Obama’s third year in office, an average of 80 percent of Democrats approved of the job he was doing in...

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla.), chair of the Democratic National Committee, said Thursday that for states to enact constitutional amendments that say human life begins at conception is “an extreme and radical step.” “For the vast majority of Americans, including people on both sides of the abortion issue, this is an extreme and radical step,” she said. Speaking to reporters on a conference call, Wasserman-Schultz said that so-called personhood amendments are a “divisive, dangerous, and destructive” attack on women. “To American women, their reproductive health and choice is an intensely personal and private issue between themselves, their families, and their doctors,”...

    On Tuesday's NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer began a hostile interview with Dick Cheney by running through various derisive labels for the former Vice President: "You've been called 'controversial' and 'divisive.' Some people have called you the most divisive political figure in this country in a century." Cheney simply quipped: "You left out Darth Vader." Later, Lauer interrogated Cheney on interrogation tactics used on terror suspects: "If an American citizen were to be taken into captivity in Iran, for example, and the government of Iran....Would it be okay for the Iranian government to waterboard that American citizen?"

But he didn't go quietly, telling me, "I haven't lived in Washington D.C. in 15 years, and I've been taken to the woodshed by the big boys." "As far as we're concerned, it's not" an ongoing fight, he insisted. "This was my one comment, which I shouldn't have made, at the end of the day this has nothing to do with Michele, Michele's campaign, or any of the rest of it.

    LOS ANGELES (CBS) — While Washington averted a government shutdown this week, California Governor Jerry Brown continues with his budget battles. The governor may feel like he’s in a recurring nightmare these days. Everywhere he turns with a proposed budget fix it gets shot down. “If we don’t get taxes, if we don’t get cuts, we’re gonna have a hard time balancing the budget,” Brown said. “Many of the Republicans told me, ‘We’re not taxing and we’re not cutting. It’s your job — you’re the governor.’” But Republicans who show up to protest at many of the governor’s events these...

    Please consider the validity of what I am about to say rather than having a knee jerk reaction dismissing it as being "over the top." Folks, we have an irresponsible egocentric evil man occupying the Oval Office. The Democrats and the liberal mainstream media sold the American people on Obama, "the man." Despite Obama's zero experience at running anything, they said a leader with his spirit and heart was "what we have been waiting for". Fearful of criticizing our first black president, politicians politely say, "President Obama's policies have been unfruitful," while ignoring the huge elephant in America's living room....

    SNIP With this in mind, perhaps we can better appreciate why Joseph Smith stated simply: “Take away the Book of Mormon and the revelations, and where is our religion? We have none” (History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 7 vols., ed. B.H. Roberts (Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 1957), 2:52). While we seek to make friends and build bridges of understanding with persons of other faiths where possible, we do not court favor, nor do we compromise one whit on what we believe. Some doctrines, like the doctrine of “only true and living church” (D&C 1:30),...

    When talk radio hosts use harshly divisive language, "The advertisers should shut them down," Governor Lincoln Chafee said this morning. Chafee said the solution to the vitriolic rhetoric -- which some have linked to the shooting of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords over the weekend -- is for people to stop paying for it, including not buying books from people who use such language. Chafee made his comments in response to reporters' questions after a meeting on health care. He noted that he had been a target of violence-tinged criticism himself. In 2006, conservative commentator Ann Coulter wrote a column, "They...
