    CNN contributor April Ryan and CNN media reporter Brian Stelter attacked black Republican Kimberly Klacik on Saturday, implying she drove Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) to his death last month after her video exposé on rat and trash infested Baltimore neighborhoods in his Congressional District provoked a national firestorm from President Trump.

    Former Rep. Kweisi Mfume said Wednesday he would be a "champion" for the district he once represented if elected to represent it again. Mfume, the former 7th District congressman, is running to succeed the man who succeeded him, Elijah Cummings. He spoke Wednesday to C4. Mfume, who left office to lead the NAACP out of a path to financial ruin, touted his credentials as "somebody at the very least who is proven, tested, trusted and most of all ready to go to work on day one." Mfume talked about his beliefs on health care, violent crime, affordable college and spurring...
  • Man explains refusing to shake McConnell's hand at Cummings memorial: 'I couldn't do it'

    A man seen in a viral video declining to shake Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) hand at the late Rep. Elijah Cummings's (D-Md.) funeral said the snub wasn’t based on his loyalty to Cummings as a friend. The man, identified as Bobby Rankin, told The Washington Post on Monday he blamed McConnell for denying veterans’ benefits to his brother before he died last October from cancer after being exposed to contaminated water while serving in the Marines. “When I saw Mitch McConnell, all I saw was my brother’s face,” Rankin told the Post. In a 16-second clip, Rankin, one...
  • It’s a Congressional Seat, not a Barony

    With the dishonorable Elijah Cummings dead, it probably doesn’t come as a galloping shock that his equally dishonorable trophy wife, Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, plans to run for his Congressional seat. It’s stunning how members of Congress and their families treat a Congressional seat as if it’s some kind of peerage. Cummings was a member of the House of Representatives, not the House of Lords. And it is a Congressional seat, not a Barony. But for some reason, his ethically-challenged wife has the hubris to think that Cummings’ Congressional seat should be passed on to her as his surviving spouse. She...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., October 24 (C-Fam) The State Department’s top official for UN affairs will retire next month after five decades of public service, beginning as a combat-decorated Marine, and including U.S. ambassador to the UN in Geneva. His departure comes after an internal campaign against him by career staffers, propelled by the left-wing media, Democrats in Congress, and the State Department’s inspector general. The campaign against assistant secretary of state Kevin Moley, and his senior advisor, Mari Stull, began shortly after he was called out of retirement to assume his responsibilities in April 2018. Emblematic of the poor state of...
  • Report raises questions about possible forgery by Elijah Cummings’ staff

    Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) was not dead for 24 hours before “theories” started popping up about some questionable signatures he’d recently penned on a few congressional subpoenas. BizPac Review reports that when one signature from the late congressman was compared to other documents that had been signed by him, the penmanship was hardly similar, leading many to believe one of his staffers may have forged his signature. Is it forgery? The subpoenas in question were meant to block the removal of illegal immigrants who were suffering from severe medical problems. Some have wondered whether Cummings really signed them, however, or...

    RUSH: I’m getting some emails. “Rush, you don’t seem to be taking impeachment seriously enough. I think you’re wrong. I think the House is gonna impeach Trump. It’s gonna they’re gonna do it. I think there’s gonna be a trial. I’m really worried. Why aren’t you?” I’m getting a lot of emails that have that as a basic theme. I’ll go through it again, but let me give you a very simple reason why I think they aren’t going to actually have an official vote and transfer all this to a trial in the Senate. That’s why they’re not gonna...

    Former President Barack Obama on the passing of iconic Maryland congressman, Rep. Elijah Cummings. “Michelle (Obama) and I are heartbroken over the passing of our friend, Elijah Cummings. As chairman of the House Oversight Committee, he showed us all not only the importance of checks and balances within our democracy, but also the necessity of good people stewarding it,” said the former president. “Steely yet compassionate, principled yet open to new perspectives, Chairman Cummings remained steadfast in his pursuit of truth, justice, and reconciliation. It’s a tribute to his native Baltimore that one of its own brought such character, tact,...

    Washington Examiner ^ | Oct 2019 | Daniel Chaitin
    Cummings was a liberal powerhouse from Maryland, while Meadows, 60, is a conservative who hails from North Carolina. The two men had little in common, but they shared a uniquely strong friendship on Capitol Hill. The bond was put on display at critical moments this year. During a dramatic House Oversight Committee hearing in February, in which President Trump's former fixer Michael Cohen was providing testimony, Cummings came to the defense of Meadows, who was accused of a "racist act" by Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib when he brought up Lynne Patton, a black woman who is a longtime friend of...

    A careful monitoring of the media today confirms that Rep. Cummings died from "complications arising from long-standing ill health." As you wouldn't accept that as a cause of death for a loved one, as a life insurance underwriter would never accept those words to approve a payout, and as a police detective would never accept those inappropriate and vague words from a coroner... What do they mean? "complications arising from long-standing ill health." Like Napoleon? Al Capone? Lenin? Lincoln? Just wondering. Our revered hero who did everything - made so many friends, spoke out, was so corurageous, crossed the aisle,...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) teed off against the House impeachment inquiry on Tuesday, marking his first comments since Congress returned from its two-week break. "House Democrats are finally indulging in their impeachment obsession. Full steam ahead," McConnell said during a speech from the Senate floor, adding that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had "crumbled" to the "left-wing impeachment caucus." "I don't think many of us were expecting to witness a clinic in terms of fairness or due process. But even by their own partisan standards, House Democrats have already found new ways to lower the bar," McConnell added.
