    While speaking to reporters Friday morning at the U.S. Capitol, liberal Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings (Md.) gave his fellow lefties a pep talk and marching orders, telling them that “this is your moment” and “we cannot afford to lose” this fight for America (against President Trump and his supporters).  Cummings spoke following a briefing from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on the firing of FBI Director James Comey and, prior to his mini-speech, complained about the firing having “turned into a mess” and applauded Robert Mueller’s appointment as special counsel on the Russia investigation. a href=http://www.mrctv.org/videos/liberal-rep-cummings-gives-media-pep-talk-your-momentwe-cannot-afford-lose>Liberal Rep.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    The one sure thing about politics that this Insurrectionist has learned can be summed up in two words: “things change.” So just like James Carville, who was wrong when in 2009 he wrote a book predicting that Dems would rule for 40 more years, it would be a bad mistake for Republicans to gloat, rest on their laurels, or assume they’ll control both houses of congress for the foreseeable future. That said, the current sorry state of the Democrat party was put into sharp focus by Elijah Cummings on today’s Morning Joe. Asked by Donny Deutsch to mention three “up-and-coming...

    Prosecutors tried one last time on Monday to persuade a Baltimore judge to convict the driver of a police wagon in which 25-year-old black arrestee Freddie Gray’s neck was broken on the way to a police station. Both sides delivered closing arguments after more than five days of testimony in the trial of Officer Caesar Goodson on charges including second-degree murder and manslaughter. Other officers left Gray in handcuffs and leg shackles inside the paddy wagon, leaving him unable to protect himself from being slammed into the van’s metal walls during the ride. Prosecutors say Goodson “breached his duty” when...

    Like many recent college grads, Rep. Elijah Cummings' (D-MD) daughter Adia sought to earn some extra cash by driving for Lyft, a ridesharing service. Unlike most recent college grads, Adia was driving a car with congressional license plates--which is against the rules. After someone posted a picture of the car on Popville, Cummings apologized for his daughter's use of the plates. He then said that he would swap out the plate and that the car was not his official vehicle.Per the House of Representative rules, the plates are "only for the use of the Member and spouse, as well as...

    The Hill ^ | 2/11/2016 | Naomi Jagoda
    A heated argument erupted Thursday at a hearing on the IRS, with Democrats and Republicans trading charges about the work of the Oversight Committee. Two Democrats on the panel accused their GOP colleagues of repeatedly holding hearings on the IRS for political reasons. In his opening statement, Oversight Committee ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) complained that the hearing was the 23rd held about the IRS in recent years. "Unfortunately, Republicans have become obsessed with investigating any and every allegation relating to the IRS, no matter how small," he said. He said Republicans are frustrated that they have never found...

    President Obama will make the first visit during his presidency to a U.S. mosque next week, the White House announced Saturday, as the administration tries to promote religious tolerance at a time when rhetoric linking Islam with terrorism is becoming more voluminous. On Wednesday the president will visit the Islamic Society of Baltimore, a sprawling community center in the the city’s western suburbs, that serves thousands of people with a place of worship, a housing complex and schools, (according to its website). It is one of the Mid-Atlantic region’s largest Muslim centers and describes itself as aspiring “to be the...

    Every once in a while our society surprises me and that's what happened in Baltimore recently. When the first police officer in the Freddie Gray case went to court it ended in a mistrial. That was surprising enough in and of itself. I'm fairly sure that when the city, led by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and prosecutor Marilyn Mosby, decided to put the officers on trial they were fairly sure that any jury they seated would bring back a conviction. That's probably why they fought so hard against moving the case out to an area where they might find a slightly...

    A Baltimore Sun columnist wrote in a Thursday op-ed that citizens who legally  own firearms are more frightening than the criminals who use the weapons on the  rough streets of her hometown.Tricia Bishop, deputy editorial page editor for the Baltimore paper,  explained how billboards advertisements for guns and everyday Americans carrying  them around made her sick.“I’m less afraid of the criminals wielding guns in Baltimore… than I am by  those permitted gun owners,” Bishop  said.She says this because she believes as a middle-class white woman, she’s  shielded from her city’s criminal element but, in her opinion, she’s not  protected from...

    Early in September, Shaquandra Ratliff was killed in Chicago. The young mother was shot when a fight broke out at a “death remembrance party” for a gang member slain a year ago. But police say Ratliff had no gang affiliation and simply was at the wrong place at the wrong time. In other words, this is a story about yet another innocent black person shot to death. A report on the killing was posted on Yahoo! News, the most popular news site in the United States. Yahoo! News allows people to comment on articles and/or to vote on comments. A...

    American Thinker ^ | October 31, 2015 | Daniel John Sobieski
    The introduction of a resolution to impeach IRS commissioner John Koskinen should comes as no surprise considering the lawlessness of the Obama administration and its use of the IRS to bludgeon its political opponents and the refusal by the DOJ to prosecute Lois Lerner for her political targeting of the Tea Party and other conservative political groups, as well as her destruction of evidence. The resolution, introduced by .House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), Rep. James Jordan (R-OH) and 18 other committee members, accuses Koskinen of making false statements under oath, failing to comply with a subpoena, and failing to...

    The Black Lives Matter crowd apparently doesn’t feel like Democrats are pandering to them quite often enough. The official website for the #BlackLivesMatter movement posted an online petition on Tuesday, demanding that Democrat National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz organize a debate focused entirely on racial issues. **SNIP** It is not enough to poll the Presidential candidates on whether or not they think “Black lives matter” or “All lives matter” – we deserve substantive responses – including and in addition to criminal justice reform, what will the presidential candidates do to ensure that Black lives matter? We deserve substance and...

    Benghazi Select Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy gave Hillary Clinton the option as to whether she wanted to testify in public or in private. She chose public, and it now seems he regrets that decision. “I can just tell you, in the private interviews, there is never any of what you saw Thursday. It is one hour on the Republican side, one hour on the Democrat side, which is why you’re going to see the next two dozen interviews done privately,” he said. “The private ones always produce better results.” Instead of producing results or new information into the investigation in Benghazi,...

    Meet The Press host Chuck Todd called out ranking Benghazi Select Committee member Elijah Cummings (D., Md.) and other Democrats Sunday for using so much of their time this week with Hillary Clinton to “shield” her rather than ask real questions about Clinton’s handling of the terrorist attack.Less than 25 percent of the Democrats’ questions, according to the NBC show’s calculations, were actually “challenging,” Todd said. The hearing was referred to as “partisan” by many mainstream media outlets, but they chose to give it that label because of the Republicans’ tough questioning of Clinton, not Democrats consistently bashing the proceedings...
