  • We’re All Native Americans Now: Elizabeth Warren demonstrates the folly of identity politics

    Wall Street Journal ^ | October 15, 2018 | The Editors
    Any doubt that Elizabeth Warren plans to run for President ended Monday when the Massachusetts Senator released a DNA analysis indicating that she probably does have some trace of distant Native American ancestry. The former Harvard professor went so far as to unveil a website and video featuring an analysis by Stanford professor Carlos Bustamante, who said that while Ms. Warren is mainly European she likely has some Native American ancestry “in the range of 6-10 generations ago.” This makes her between 1/64th and 1/1024th Native American, which barely spares her the humiliation of not having any after she had...
  • Former Obama campaign manager scorches Elizabeth Warren for releasing DNA test weeks before midterms

    President Obama's former campaign manager on Monday sharply criticized Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren for releasing the results of a disputed DNA test that she said backed up her claims of Native American ancestry. He claimed she was throwing her party off-message just weeks before November's critical midterm elections. "Argue the substance all you want, but why 22 days before a crucial election where we MUST win house and senate to save America, why did @SenWarren have to do her announcement now?" former President Barack Obama's 2012 campaign manager, Jim Messina, tweeted. "Why can’t Dems ever stay focused???" added Messina,...
  • Doug Schoen: Hillary and Holder hurting Democrats with their amazing and disgusting comments

    Fox News ^ | October 14, 2018 | Douglas E. Schoen
    As Democrats campaign for the Nov. 6 midterm elections, they have plenty of legitimate criticisms to level at President Trump and Republicans who control the House and Senate. But Democrats were hurt in recent days by amazing and disgusting comments made by Hillary Clinton and former Attorney General Eric Holder. As a Democrat, I want my party to win as many seats as possible in the House and Senate and to capture as many governorships and other state offices as it can. But the Clinton and Holder remarks do not advance that effort – they hurt it. Former Secretary of...

    I yelled at my husband last night. Not pick-up-your-socks yell. Not how-could-you-ignore-that-red-light yell. This was real yelling. This was 30 minutes of from-the-gut yelling. Triggered by a small, thoughtless, dismissive, annoyed, patronizing comment. Really small. A micro-wave that triggered a hurricane. I blew. Hard and fast. And it terrified me. I’m still terrified by what I felt and what I said. I am almost 70 years old. I am a grandmother. Yet in that roiling moment, screaming at my husband as if he represented every clueless male on the planet (and I every angry woman of 2018), I announced that...
  • ABC Executives Regret Firing Roseanne, Fear ‘Connors’ Spin-Off Series will Flop

    Executives at ABC now believe that their decision to fire Roseanne Barr from their revival of Roseanne was a mistake and the network’s spin-off series The Conners may flop, according to a report from Mail Online. Two senior executives at the network told the outlet that ABC President Channing Dungey’s decision to immediately fire the actress and cancel her show after she made racially charged comments about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett was a “knee-jerk” decision that they would later regret. “We didn’t think it through properly. What Roseanne did was wrong but we shouldn’t have rushed to fire her....
  • Alyssa Milano: I don't have equal rights under the Constitution -- yet (mega barf alert)

    "My name is Alyssa Milano, and I do not have equal rights under our Constitution. I have a three-year-old daughter named Bella. She does not have equal rights under the Constitution, either." This is how I began my testimony at a Congressional shadow hearing on the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) just a few months ago. At that point, I didn't think it could be possible to feel more urgency about insisting that women be protected in our government's highest legal document, the US Constitution. I was wrong. Now, as I watch Brett Kavanaugh's likely ascension to the Supreme Court, it...

    [SNIP] Schumer and Ratajkowski were arrested. The latter, a model and actress, tweeted about her arrest and included a photo of herself at the protest holding a sign that read, “Respect female existence or expect our resistance.” Similar to how Alyssa Milano was shamed for her outfit at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last week, Ratajkowski’s clothing, instead of her message, garnered the most attention by Kavanaugh supporters. ... From comments like “put on a bra,” surprisingly coming from a woman, and “Sorry I was focused on something else, can you say that again?” it is clear that these vocal...

    Has American political life become permanently … boofed? Ohio Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse declared today that he has somehow cracked Brett Kavanaugh’s calendar code to discover the date of Christine Blasey Ford’s victimization at his hands. In the Judiciary Committee meeting, Whitehouse highlighted a calendar entry listing a July 1 party as evidence that “may” corroborate Ford’s testimony:

    udge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court is poised for a vote Friday morning by the Senate Judiciary Committee amid high partisan tensions. The Republican-led committee began a crucial meeting to debate and then to vote on whether to advance the nomination to the full Senate — a day after nearly nine hours of emotional and at times wrenching testimony from the judge and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, on her allegation of sexual assault when they were teens. Here's how the day is unfolding: 11:31 a.m.: Red and blue take over the meeting room Hoping to propel Kavanaugh’s...

    Four Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee walked out of the hearing room in protest after Republicans decided along party lines to schedule a “time certain” vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh for 1:30 p.m. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) walked out of the room, causing a burst of activity from photographers in the well of the hearing room who captured the moment. “I strongly object. This is just totally ridiculous. What a railroad job. My answer is no, no, no!” Hirono yelled out shortly before leaving the room....

    Michelle Obama encouraged people who “know nothing about nothing” to get out and vote while speaking at a campaign-style rally on Monday in Las Vegas. “Voting does not require any kind of special expertise,” Obama told the crowd. “You know, you don’t need to have some fancy degree to be qualified to vote. You don’t have to read every news article to be qualified to vote.” “You know what you need to be qualified to vote?” Obama asked. “You need to be a citizen … you need to have opinions about the issues in your community — that’s what qualifies...

    The burden of proof lies with the accuser. If you cannot prove your case, then do not make false rape accusations. You can’t make up this stuff! If someone is feeding Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand these lines, I hope they are being led away in chains, as this is one of the most idiotic analysis I’ve heard yet. How in the heck are Republicans trying to silence Christine Blasey Ford who accused Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault from 35 years ago, when they keep giving her time to play them like fools?Source: CNS News Giving Christine Blasey...

    Rep. Ralph Norman, R-S.C., used his opening remarks at a Thursday debate for South Carolina's 5th Congressional District to make an off-color joke about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. "Did y’all hear the latest, late-breaking news from the Kavanaugh hearings? Ruth Bader Ginsburg came out [saying[ that she was groped by Abraham Lincoln," he said to some laughs and applause. Norman, who has been endorsed by President Donald Trump, later defended his remarks on Twitter, saying they were "meant to add a bit of levity to a very serious debate between me and my Democrat opponent and to point...

    Actor Jack Black went after President Donald Trump Tuesday while delivering remarks for the unveiling of his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “I love you all so much,” the Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle star said, wrapping up his speech, in front of a small audience. “Except for Donald Trump’s a piece of sh— ! Peace out, love you!” Jack Black concluded. Tuesday’s remarks were the first time in more than a year Black had publicly taken shot at President Trump. Last February, the Kong Fu Panda star said he hoped actress Meryl Streep would win an Academy...

We have the power.” You can always count on Rep. Maxine Waters to give away the plans to destroy Trump’s presidency and administration. The latest of which occurred Friday and included a suggestion to “knock off” Trump, which was greeted with applause and cheers. The National Newspaper Publishers Association gave Waters a National Leadership Award and Waters used her platform to trash Trump. Watch:...

He also said he wished he had shown support for gay marriage earlier in his political career.

The California congresswoman accepted a lifetime achievement award from the Stonewall Young Democrats on Saturday in Los Angeles, telling the enthusiastic crowd that Mr. Trump threatened Americans’ way of life and deserved to be impeached. “I’m gonna get him,” Ms. Waters said, according to a video published by progressive activist and attendee Edward Garren. “I’m in this fight and I’m not gonna move.
  • How to Remove an Unfit President With the 25th Amendment [BARF Alert BARF Alert BARF Alert]

    Lifehacker ^ | Saturday, September 8, 2018 | Beth Skwarecki
    The US Constitution provides instructions for how to remove a president from office if they are unfit to do their job—gravely wounded, for example, or mentally unstable. The instructions were ratified as an amendment in 1967, after John F. Kennedy's assassination. Until that point, the Constitution just vaguely referred to the fact that a president could be removed for "Inability to discharge the Powers and Duties of said Office." When can the 25th amendment be invoked for an unfit president? Whenever the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet are ready to do so. One anonymous "senior official" wrote...

    Democratic senators put on quite a show Thursday at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing. Desperate for a "gotcha" moment that would disqualify the Trump nominee, the senators asked pointed questions and gave lectures about transparency. But, they embarrassed themselves in the process. Sen. Cory Booker (NJ) got the loudest laugh.Booker's theatrics came at the very beginning of the hearing. He interrupted Chairman Chuck Grassley's opening remarks to announce that he had broken Senate rules and released "committee confidential" documents about Kavanaugh's opinions on racial profiling. He even referred to himself as "Spartacus," as if he was some kind of...

    Viola Davis has one person in mind when it comes to improving race relations in the country -- and she's a new, young face in politics who could soon be in congress. We got the 'How to Get Away with Murder' star Sunday at LAX and asked who she thought might be the next champion of our time, especially when it comes to easing racial tensions ... which seem to be at a bit of a boiling point lately. She nominates Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who just won the Democratic primary in New York and earned a spot on the midterm election...
