    Chelsea Manning tweeted a not-so-veiled jab at President Trump as part of her Veterans Day message. "Want to support veterans !? Stop sending us overseas to kill or be killed for your nationalist fairy tales. We can do better," the transgender Army veteran tweeted on Saturday.

    Fox News has canceled ads purchased by Democratic mega-donor Tom Steyer that call for President Trump’s impeachment, CNN’s Brian Stelter confirmed Monday. “Due to the strong negative reaction to their ad by our viewers, we could not in good conscience take their money,” Fox News told Stelter. Steyer said Friday in a statement that Fox News informed him on Oct. 31 that it was refusing to air the ad entitled “Join Us.” Steyer said the decision “shows no respect for democracy.” Steyer launched his $10 million “Need to Impeach” ad campaign in late October, drawing the ire of Trump, who...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Sunday slammed Republicans for offering their condolences in the wake of the Texas church shooting while failing to take concrete steps to curb gun violence. "Thoughts & prayers are not enough, GOP. We must end this violence. We must stop these tragedies. People are dying while you wait," Warren wrote in one tweet. Warren took to Twitter to express her anger and heartbreak after a gunman opened fire at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, killing at least 26 people and injuring about 20 others. She took aim at the National Rifle Association (NRA), asking...

    WASHINGTON – Sen. Al Franken has some questions about Russia for Attorney General Jeff Sessions — about eight pages’ worth. Franken fired off a lengthy letter to Sessions on Thursday, asking him to give his own account of interactions between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives. It followed the guilty plea earlier this week by a former Trump foreign policy adviser on charges of lying to federal agents about his contact with Russians. Russia and the Trump campaign have been a flash point between the former Senate colleagues since Sessions’ confirmation hearing, when he responded to a question from the...
  • Loudmouth Democrat Frederica Wilson Drags 11-Year-Old Barron Trump Into Her Feud with President

    The Florida Democrat made headlines when she accused President Trump of being heartless in his call to a grieving widow — something Barack Obama skipped out on for much of his tenure in the White House. Earlier this week Frederica took a few more shots at President Trump predicting his impeachment. She then pulled 11-year-old Barron Trump into the feud. This truly is a classless woman. PJ Media reported: Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) predicted that President Donald Trump will eventually resign from office to avoid impeachment by making up an excuse such as “somebody is trying to kill Barron” Trump,...
  • Kurtz: The Democrats' Impeachment Fantasy

    Nancy Pelosi is running away from impeachment. And the fact that she’s doing so speaks volumes about where her party is in the Trump era. Let’s start with the inconvenient fact—inconvenient for Democrats—that President Trump hasn’t committed anything close to an impeachable offense. Critics can skewer him over his policies and persona, or speculate about what the Russia investigation might find, but mostly they just wish that somehow he could be magically removed from the White House. That, however, is not the view of much of the liberal base that can provide the energy and the money as Pelosi’s party...

    Add Rob Reiner to the list of celebrities who wouldn’t accept an invitation to visit Donald Trump’s White House. Speaking with Yahoo Entertainment about his timely new political drama, LBJ, the outspoken filmmaker & political activist indicated that he’d steer clear of a one-on-one meeting with Trump, even if the invitation came with the opportunity to screen his portrait of America’s 36th president (played by Woody Harrelson) for the 45th inhabitant of the Oval Office. “I would never go to his White House,” Reiner says emphatically. “Not only do I not agree with him politically, but I find him to...

    Rapidly growing human populations risk having a "terrible impact" on the world, the Duke of Cambridge has warned. The Duke said that as a result, wildlife was being put under "enormous pressure" and called for the issue to be addressed with renewed vigour. His concerns echo those of his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, who in 2011 advocated “voluntary family limitation" as a means of solving overpopulation, which he described as the biggest challenge in conservation. His grandson, royal patron of the Tusk Trust, told the charity’s gala dinner in London that measures needed to be taken to save certain...

    April Ryan to Huckabee Sanders: Does administration 'think slavery is wrong?' By Joe Concha - 10/31/17 04:54 PM EDT CNN contributor and American Urban Radio Networks reporter April Ryan on Tuesday asked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders if the administration believed "slavery is wrong." The question at the end of the Tuesday briefing comes one day after White House chief of staff John Kelly stated in a Fox News interview that the Civil War happened in part because of "a failure to compromise" between the North and South. "Does this administration think that slavery is wrong?" Ryan asked...

    White House reporter April Ryan followed up on Chief of Staff Ret. Gen. John Kelly saying lack of ability to compromise sparked the Civil War. "Compromise. The issue of compromise. What is the definition of compromise as it relates to slavery and the Civil War?" Ryan asked. "Look, I'm not going to get in and relitigate the Civil War like I told you yesterday. I think I've addressed the concerns that a lot of people had and the questions that you had. I'm not going to relitigate history here," Huckabee told Ryan, a reporter for 'American Urban Radio Networks.' "I'm...

    Blackface is as predictable around Halloween as candy, and by now the outrage in response is also pretty predictable. Plenty of white people, including parents who watched Disney pull its "Maui" zip-up suit costume from store shelves last year in response to accusations of brownface, are probably wondering when, if ever, it's OK to dress up as a figure of another race. The answer: It depends. Like most issues involving race in our country, avoiding offense at Halloween requires thinking about not just stereotypes or discrimination but also white supremacy. One problem with racism is that it advances white supremacy...

    Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez spoke at Indiana University Law School this week. The name of the talk was The Lawyer’s Duty: Social Justice, Racial Justice, Economic Justice, but somehow Perez ended up discussing the Electoral College, and made a huge error in the process. “The Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution,” Perez said. “It doesn’t have to be there.” Except, the Electoral College is in the Constitution. Right here in Article II, to be exact: Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the...

    Jane Fonda has weighed in again about the Harvey Weinstein scandal. The iconic actress, who currently stars on Netflix‘s Grace & Frankie, attended MSNBC’s All In With Chris Hayes where she acted as a spokesperson the Women’s Media Center. Gloria Steinem was also in attendance. Once there, according to Vulture, the actress spoke of the scandal that continues to rock Hollywood. “It feels like something has shifted,” the actress said. “It’s too bad that it’s probably because so many of the women that were assaulted by Harvey Weinstein are famous and white and everybody knows them. This has been going on a long...

    Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) is calling for an apology from White House chief of staff John Kelly for "character assassination." “Not only does he owe me an apology, but he owes an apology to the American people,” Wilson said during an appearance Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy," according to The Washington Post. She also referred to Kelly as a "puppet of the president." The Florida Democrat called the deaths of four U.S. soldiers in Niger a "catastrophe." ADVERTISEMENT "We had four soldiers who died. They have been buried," she said. "And we need to know why, and we need to...

    A group of House Democrats on Thursday urged Vice President Pence to reimburse taxpayers the cost of his travel this month to Indianapolis for an NFL game he abruptly left after players kneeled during the national anthem. In a letter to Pence, five House Democrats demanded the vice president pay back the expenses of attending the game, where the Indianapolis Colts faced off against the San Francisco 49ers. A CNN report estimated that Pence’s travel to and from Indiana cost taxpayers about $242,500, which doesn’t include the cost of Secret Service or advance staff. The Democratic lawmakers asked that Pence...

    In the course of a rambling interview on CNN this morning, Dem Congresswoman Frederica Wilson repeatedly claimed that she didn’t want to “politicize” the issue of the conversation President Trump had with the widow of a soldier killed in Niger. Right. Wilson would never politicize it. Except . . . she said: Trump lied about the conversation, that given the chance she would have cursed him out on the phone, that Trump doesn’t know how to sympathize and that his actions were “disgraceful.” Oh, and for good measure, Wilson said that Trump “has a brain disorder, and he needs to...

    Jane Fonda says she's not proud of America Jane Fonda made it clear she is not proud of America. During a recent interview with the BBC, Fonda was asked, "Are you proud of America today?" The actress was very quick to reply with a hard "no." "But, I’m proud of the resistance," she elaborated. "I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what Trump is doing. I’m very proud of them, that core." I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and...

    Larry Flynt, the pornography publisher, is offering "up to $10 million" to anyone who produces information that leads to President Donald Trump's impeachment and removal from office. Laying out the offer in a full-page ad in the Sunday edition of The Washington Post, the advert says: “Buried in Trump’s top-secret tax returns or in other records from his far-flung investments there may be a smoking gun.” “The attempt to impeach Donald Trump will strike many as a sour grapes plot by Democrats to overturn a legitimate election,” it continues. “But there is a strong case to be made that the...

    RUSH: There were protests in the NFL again last night. The NFL game last night, there were protests. But you know what? Nobody saw it. You know why? Because the TV networks didn’t televise it. You know why? Because the NFL is losing this thing and the players are losing this thing, and there’s no more power. No longer is there any strength. No longer is there any advantage for the Drive-By Media and the NFL and the players association to televise players disrespecting the anthem. The fact that they thought that was a good thing for them politically shows...
