    Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, during a candid conversation, with Aroon Purie, Editor-in-chief of the India Today Group, said that she thought she would have won the much-publicised US Presidential Election of 2016.(snip) Later, during a Q & A session, Hillary Clinton said that she didn't think Republicans would pick Donald Trump as a candidate and that she didn't think Americans would vote for him. Clinton said that now, Washington is following a one-party system without room for dissenting voices. The former secretary said that she was mobilising youngsters to contest in the elections. Without making any direct...
  • (Idiot) Governor Of Connecticut Says 'NRA Has Become A Terrorist Organization'

    Connecticut’s governor called the National Rifle Association (NRA) a terrorist organization in an interview Tuesday. Gov. Dannel Malloy, a Democrat, also said his state would "boycott" the NRA and said the organization has been acting like a "terrorist organization," in an interview with Fox61. He also believes the NRA has changed throughout the past 20 years. "They act, quite frankly, in some cases as a terrorist organization," Malloy said. "You want to make safer guns? We will boycott your company. That's who they are. That's what they do."

    The practice of lawmakers bunking in their offices is unsanitary — and an abuse of taxpayer funds, according to members of the Congressional Black Caucus. A bloc of House Democrats is calling for an ethics investigation into the widespread practice of lawmakers sleeping in their offices, arguing it's an abuse of taxpayer funds. More than two dozen members of the Congressional Black Caucus signed on to a letter obtained by POLITICO to Ethics Committee Chairwoman Susan Brooks (R-Ind.) and ranking member Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) asking for a probe into the “legality and propriety” of such conduct by members of Congress....
  • The last joke is Tide Pods

    03/06/2018 9:47:16 AM PST · by Red Badger · 38 replies ^ | Mar 3, 2018, 5:00pm EST | By Kaitlyn Tiffany
    The idea of ingesting a Tide Pod used to be a little bit funny. For example, when The New York Daily News printed a comment from Senator Chuck Schumer under a rudely ageist headline in September 2012. He had recently been informed that 40 children in New York City had eaten Tide Pods and received medical attention for eating Tide Pods in the preceding five months. And he said, mostly unprovoked, “I saw one on my staffer’s desk and I wanted to eat it.” It’s good in print and it’s better out loud. “I saw one on my staffer’s desk...

    Less than a month after a school shooting that killed 17 people, several celebrities are reportedly planning to use the Oscars as a platform to raise awareness for gun control. People magazine reports that a group of A-listers will don orange pins from Everytown for Gun Safety, a nonprofit organization that advocates for gun control and works to reduce gun violence. Orange is the unofficial color that has come to be associated with various gun-control causes. Everytown sells orange American flag pins on its website, but it's not immediately clear if those are the exact pins that will be worn...
  • Democrats are surprised that more money in pay checks is popular

    How out of touch is the Democratic Party? This out of touch: The Washington Post reports that Democrats expected the Trump tax cut to be unpopular and are surprised to find that voters like seeing more money in their pay checks. Post reporter Erica Warner writes: Democrats predicted a political backlash for ­Republicans in December when the GOP pushed through a deeply unpopular tax cut that added more than $1 trillion to the federal deficit and disproportionately helped the wealthy. But at the outset of the 2018 campaign season, Democrats’ early optimism appears less well founded here [in Indiana], where...
  • Tearful Jimmy Kimmel Pops off on Trump: ‘You’re Obviously Mentally Ill’

    BC's Jimmy Kimmel is once again using his show as a political platform, encouraging his audience to vote out of office Republicans donate money to, a gun control group seeking to "end gun violence in America." The host aimed his most pointed criticism at President Trump, saying, "You're obviously mentally ill." "You’ve literally done nothing," on guns, Kimmel complained. "Actually, you’ve done worse than nothing. You like to say this is a mental health issue. One of your very first acts as president, Mr. Trump, was to roll back the regulations that were designed to keep firearms out of...
  • Adam Schiff Sought To Obtain Nude Photos Of Trump From Russians

    02/06/2018 10:57:08 PM PST · by Helicondelta · 32 replies
    Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, was pranked last year by Russian comedians who offered nude photos of President Trump. Schiff cautioned the man that “our Russian friends” could be eavesdropping on the call, and told him not to share anything he wouldn’t want them to hear. But the man went on to say that the Russians had “pictures of naked Trump” Schiff then told the man that his office would work with FBI to figure out “how we can obtain copies.” The California Democrat, however, had actually been speaking with Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey...
  • Black Democrats Boycott Trump's SOTU Over His 'Racism, Sexism and Bigotry,'

    Perhaps the word “swoon” in the headline strikes some of my amigos as unnecessarily hyperbolic?—as typical “click-bait?”Fair enough. Let’s have a closer look at the issue for a more accurate evaluation. Here’s indignant Trump SOTU boycotter Barbara Lee (D-CA) explaining her indignation and boycott:“On January 20th, I will not be celebrating or honoring an incoming president who rode racism, sexism, xenophobia and bigotry to the White House."Now here’s Lee upon “copping a backstage pass” (so to speak) upon one of her frequent red-carpet visits to Cuba to “meet and greet” the jailer and torturer of the most and longest suffering black,...

    She did it again! Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi called President Trump “President Bush” at least five times in 2017. She did it again today. Minority Leader Pelosi got confused and mixed up on Thursday when speaking to reporters on the pending release of the House Intelligence FISA memo. Pelosi stuttered and once again called President Trump “Bush” to a gaggle of reporters. She’ll get it one of these days.

    No one knows for sure whether anyone will take a knee inside the Super Bowl on Sunday. However, it’s now clear that many will in fact kneel in protest, outside the stadium. The Take a Knee Conference and Rally, will meet outside U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on Saturday, and continue holding events on through Super Bowl Sunday.

    Before I get to the embarrassment of the nasty, bitter State of the Union display by the Democratic Party, let me lead with great news. First, the jobs front. Wednesday morning saw the release of ADP/Moody’s Analytics private payrolls report. New job creation exploded once again under President Trump. Businesses added 234,000 jobs in January versus an expected 185,000. Manufacturing added 12,000 jobs and construction 9,000 new jobs - in a traditionally slow month. WOW. Secondly, the numbers from Trump’s State of the Union. Fox News had the biggest audience for a State of the Union in the history of...
  • The Glorious Optics of Trump’s SOTU

    02/01/2018 5:57:34 AM PST · by Kaslin · 21 replies ^ | February 1, 2018 | Lawrence Myers
    The scowling faces of Democrats during President Trump’s SOTU speech on Tuesday night told Americans everything they need to know about the Democratic leadership of this country. Items that any rational person should cheer went unacknowledged by most Democrat politicians. Or rather, they were acknowledged, with aforementioned scowling faces and the distinct lack of even golf club applause. This is what we in public relations call “bad optics”. It is instructive to examine not only why the Democrats’ behavior is so awful, but how the President’s policies and the speech itself set them up for failure. The American economy has...

    American Thinker ^ | 1/31/18 | Patricia McCarthy
    It is difficult to imagine a more galling demonstration of incivility than the Democrats in the room for Trump's SOTU speech. They scowled, frowned, and sat on their hands throughout the speech. They could hardly be bothered to acknowledge the heroes in the audience when they were introduced. While the Dems brought illegal immigrants, Trump invited actual paragons of American character and the families of victims of illegal immigrant crimes, as well as a victim of North Korea. It was embarrassing, like watching the anti-Semites in the UN stomp out of the room when Benjamin Netanyahu speaks. How is it any...

    REP. TREY GOWDY (R-SC): My Democratic colleagues didn’t want us to find this information. They did everything they could to keep us from finding this information.

    Airbnb has unveiled a new ad in advance of Tuesday's State of the Union address, calling for the United States to 'open doors, not build walls.' The ad throws subtle jabs at President Donald Trump for his recent comments about 's***hole' countries in the Third World. 'We heard there's been some expletive-filled interest in these beautiful destinations,' the ad begins, showing scenes from Haiti, El Salvador and Africa. 'We also know a few people who would love to show you around,' the ad says. 'Let's open doors, not build walls.'

    The establishment media have saved Democrats from embarrassment by refusing to cover their struggling attempts to explain away the positive economic effects the Republican tax bill delivered for the working class. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other leading Democrats predicted the tax bill would be a disaster for the working class — “Armageddon” is how Pelosi described it — only to see more than three million American workers receive bonuses and pay raises as a result of the GOP tax cuts. Additionally, 90 percent of workers are expected to see an increase in take-home pay in 2018. Pelosi, one...

    On Monday, Blumenauer took to Facebook again, to announce he'll be sending a DACA recipient, or DREAMer, to "remind Trump that these are real people with families and jobs, who are vital to our communities."...In social media posts, the congressman has called the president's actions, specifically his use of a vulgar term to describe some countries in Africa, "shameful," "disgraceful" and "racist." Last year, he introduced legislation called the "No TRUMP Act" after reports that federal officials spent taxpayer dollars at Trump-owned properties. Additionally, he introduced a bill that would make it easier to remove the president via the 25th...

    Nearly a year after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, a Harvard University professor says 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton could still become commander in chief. Lawrence Lessig, the Roy L. Furman professor of law and leadership at Harvard Law School, penned an essay for Medium in October outlining a series of hypothetical scenarios that could take place should the ongoing probe find that the Trump campaign actually conspired with Russia to influence the results of the election. If Trump did conspire with Russia, the president “should resign, or, if he doesn’t, he should be impeached,” Lessig wrote in his essay. Vice...
