    Georgetown University professor and former NPR editor Kitty Eisele lamented on Sunday that protesters in Washington, D.C., had not attacked the Trump International Hotel. "Shame they aren't noticing the Trump Hotel which costs more and has a more problematic clientele," she responded to a tweet noting the vandalism of the Hay-Adams, a luxury hotel near the White House. The Trump Hotel, also located near the White House, is a popular hangout spot for Trump administration members and allies. Formerly the Old Post Office and Clock Tower, Donald Trump developed the property into a hotel and opened it in 2016. Eisele,...
  • Civil unrest could influence Biden’s search for running mate

    WASHINGTON -- Joe Biden’s search for a running mate could be reshaped by the police killing of George Floyd and the unrest it has ignited across the country, raising questions about contenders with law and order backgrounds and intensifying pressure on the presumptive Democratic nominee to select a black woman. Biden, who has already pledged to pick a woman, has cast a wide net in his search. Even before the outcry over Floyd’s death, some Biden allies were already urging him to put a black woman on the ticket given the critical role African Americans played in his path to...
  • The riots are about more than George Floyd, the police, Donald Trump and the media

    Trying to understand a riot is never easy, especially when it's still raging. The rolling unrest tearing through multiple American cities is many things. But it's not simple. The horrific slow death of a black man at the hands of an impassive white police officer was just the match that lit a building fury. The police statement — which described a suspect "under the influence" who suffered "medical distress", with no mention of the police officer pinning him down — didn't help. Neither did the four-day delay in bringing charges against the officer. And the President's tweet that "when the...
  • Susan Rice makes claim Russians could be behind violent George Floyd demonstrations

    Former Obama administration national security adviser Susan Rice bizarrely suggested in a televised interview Sunday that the Russians could be behind the violent nationwide demonstrations following the in-custody death of George Floyd, although she offered no evidence for the incendiary claim. Rice's made the claim after top Democrats insisted for years that the White House had conspired with Russia, although Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence to support any conspiracy with Russia by any U.S. actor to influence the 2016 election. Her remarks also came amid efforts by Democrats to pin the blame on outside white supremacist agitators, even...
  • Trump, White Supremacists And Russia: Here’s Who Democrats Have Blamed For Riots So Far

    As riots take hold of major cities across the nation, Democrats have brought out the usual suspects in an effort to lay blame for the chaos and destruction. The massive protests were initially peaceful as people rallied over the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died in police custody after Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck. Chauvin was later fired — along with the three other officers in the viral video of Floyd’s arrest — and he was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. But as the protests turned violent and rioters began to...

    Saturday on CNN, anchor Don Lemon said called out Hollywood leaders and stars who were afraid to hurt their brand by speaking up amid the nationwide protests after the death of George Floyd. Lemon said, “But what about the leadership in other places? What about Hollywood? Strangely quiet. I see them on Twitter, ‘Oh, I’m loving what Don Lemon’s doing,’ I’m loving what this person’s doing. But they’ve got to do more than that. Especially black celebrities and black leaders and while celebrities and rich Hollywood and rich folks and wealthy people. Why aren’t they helping these young people? These...

    Twice in a 24-hour period, the president of the United States took to Twitter to endorse violence. The first time, at 12:00 a.m. on Thursday, he retweeted a video in which a supporter says, “The only good Democrat is a dead Democrat.” Then, early Friday morning, as protests over the police killing of George Floyd erupted in Minneapolis and turned violent, Donald Trump tweeted that “THUGS” were “dishonoring” Mr. Floyd’s memory. He concluded with a chilling warning, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.” Trump is by no means the first American president to talk tough or to threaten the...
  • Chaos is now Donald Trump’s biggest threat: Goodwin

    For most of Donald Trump’s brief political career, chaos has been his friend. He draws energy from an endless storm of difficulties and controversies that would send most presidents into the fetal position. Critics and supporters alike compare his presidency to a reality television show, one that always ends with the leading man getting the last word. From Russia, Russia, Russia to Ukraine and impeachment, Trump’s time in the White House has been a continuing roller-coaster ride between danger on one side and disaster on the other. A political Houdini, he has always escaped and emerged stronger in victory, but...

  • CNN host Chris Cuomo's viewership has plunged by HALF since he contracted coronavirus after segments with brother Andrew were panned as ratings stunts

    CNN host Chris Cuomo's ratings have plunged 49 percent in the two months since he announced he'd contracted coronavirus, data from Nielsen Media Research shows. Since the week of March 30, Cuomo has dropped from first in his 9pm time slot among cable news hosts to bottom of the barrel, last week averaging just 440,000 daily viewers in the age demographic prized by advertisers. Cuomo's stunning ratings nosedive came after interviews with his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, in lighthearted segments that were widely panned as ratings stunts amid the coronavirus pandemic. Though all cable news saw something of...

    Tens of thousands of people took to the streets across the country to protest the death of George Floyd, a black man who died on May 25 in Minneapolis after a white police officer pressed a knee into his neck. Many demonstrations have started off peaceful but turned violent, leading to nearly 1,700 arrests in 17 U.S. cities and sparking heated debates among partisan pundits, who blame the other side for the chaos. Who are these protesters, and what are their agendas?

    Mike Erlandson, a former chairman of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer Labor Party, said he watched with his 15-year-old daughter in Minnesota this week as a man spray-painted on a wall, “F--k the white people from the suburbs.” “I do think that, particularly if this continues, the [congressional] districts like Dean Phillips’ district or Angie Craig’s district that right now I would say are relatively safe for the Democratic incumbent, could be very much in play,” he said. “Both of those districts will be decided in large part by suburban women voters, and it would be hard for me to imagine those...

    Those of you who pay attention no doubt noticed that the narrative being pushed about the national riots shifted early Saturday morning from “these are just peaceful people who need to be heard,” to “all of this violence is being pushed by white nationalists.” Obviously a memo went out from the DNC or Soros headquarters telling every shameless leftist in the country to push this latest hoax. That despicable, utterly false narrative was pushed all over cable news, including Fox; it was pushed by depraved Democrat members of congress; it was pushed by feckless Minnesota Governor Tim Walz; it was...
  • Walter Lippmann explains why journalists apply the label of protesters to rioters

    05/31/2020 8:14:37 AM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 11 replies
    Journalism today likes to provoke us, do you feel provoked? In the blueprint for modern journalism, "Public Opinion", Lippmann wrote on Page 355 the following: It is a problem of provoking feeling in the reader, of inducing him to feel a sense of personal identification with the stories he is reading. News which does not offer this opportunity to introduce oneself into the struggle which it depicts cannot appeal to a wide audience. The audience must participate in the news, much as it participates in the drama, by personal identification. Just as everyone holds his breath when the heroine is...

    WASHINGTON -- Members of three House and Senate committees will interview former State Department Inspector General Steve Linick on Wednesday as part of an investigation by House Democrats into his abrupt firing by President Donald Trump. The investigation is being led by House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., House Oversight and Reform Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., and New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Republicans on those panels will also be invited to question Linick and other witnesses. “If Secretary Pompeo pushed for Mr. Linick’s dismissal to cover up his own...

    Minnesota Democrat Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan accused “white supremacists” on Saturday of instigating and participating in the widespread riots and looting in her state over the police killing of state resident George Floyd. Flanagan indicated that gangs of white supremacists are taking advantage of the anarchy unfolding in the Twin Cities to sow more chaos. “People should be able to come together … and mourn and grieve and demand change and justice in policing and every other racist system that we have that has been part of this state,” Flanagan, the first Native American lieutenant governor in Minnesota, declared. “But in...

Lee, an incredibly unprofessional psychiatrist who has been making a career out of her deranged obsession with Trump, is now warning that we can't wait until the November election to remove Trump from office because he has access to nuclear weapons which he will probably use according to her. Some of the highlights of Mark Levin's interview with her reveals just how far gone this loon is as he beautifully, and hilariously, exposes how little professional credibility she actually has.

    I abandoned his usual jokey introduction on Friday night and instead gave a somber speech about George Floyd's death and the protests taking place across the country. The TV host got real with viewers of Jimmy Kimmel Live! as he addressed 'disgusting excuse for a President' Trump's response to the increasingly volatile situation and called on people to vote him out, whether 'Right, left, Republican, Democrat,'.
