  • Tim Kaine shrugs off WikiLeaks email threat

    10/24/2016 7:54:36 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 17 replies
    The Christian Science Monitor ^ | October 24, 2016 | Gretel Kauffman
    WikiLeaks has twice warned Tim Kaine that he might be in for a "surprise" – but the vice presidential candidate says he's not worried. Despite multiple warnings from the organization that has been steadily publishing stolen emails from Hillary Clinton's campaign manager John Podesta, Mrs. Clinton's running mate says he isn't threatened by the possibility of his correspondences going public, since he is a "regular human being" with nothing to be "overly embarrassed about." Nasty emails are "not my norm," the Democratic vice presidential nominee told the Associated Press on Saturday, adding, "I do have a temper so, I mean,...
  • Tim Kaine: Ban 15-Round 'Clips,; Hold Gun Dealers Liable for Misuse of Firearms - Breitbart

    On July 22 Hillary Clinton announced Tim Kaine as her running mate. Kaine is a Democrat Senator from Virginia who supports a ban on 15-round “clips” and “assault weapons,” and who wants to enact a law to hold gun dealers liable for the misuse of firearms. During the June 26 airing of Meet the Press, Kaine told Chuck Todd that he voted for an “assault weapons” ban before and "would likely vote for it again." But he stressed that he believes “limitations on the size of magazines and ammunition clips” is the first step to take. Todd asked Kaine if he believes the...

    Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine, a practicing Catholic, on Saturday described his evolution on same-sex marriage and predicted that his church would change its views as well. “My full, complete, unconditional support for marriage equality is at odds with the current doctrine of the church that I still attend,” Kaine said at a dinner celebrating gay rights. “But I think that’s going to change, too.” Kaine, a senator from Virginia, spoke to a crowd of about 3,700 attending the 20th Annual Human Rights Campaign National Dinner in Washington, at which he also touted reasons why his running mate, presidential nominee...

    Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) said Saturday his running mate Hillary Clinton doesn’t need to apologize for her “basket of deplorables” comment about supporters of Donald Trump. “She said, 'Look, I’m generalizing here, but a lot of his support is coming from this odd place, that he’s given a platform to the alt-right and white nationalists,’ ” Kaine told the Washington Post. “But then she went on to say, ‘Look, there’s also a number of his supporters that have economic anxieties, and we’ve got to speak to those.’ ” At a fundraiser in New York City Friday night, Clinton told a...

    Former Democratic operative turned Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos good barely restrain himself on Tuesday as he gushed over a new movie about the first date between Barack and Michelle Obama. Talking to the stars of Southside With You, he hyped the film as focusing “on one day in the summer of 1989 when Barack and Michelle Obama went out for the first time.” Stephanopoulos pressed actors Tika Sumpter and Parker Sawyers (who stars as Obama), wondering, “I guess you guys have to be a little bit nervous thinking, 'Are they going the watch the movie?'” Zeroing in on...
  • Lindsey Graham demands Ben Carson apologize to Muslims

    Lindsey Graham is demanding (probably on behalf of CAIR) that Ben Carson apologize to Muslims for his remarks on Meet the Press yesterday. Ben Carson said he would not support a Muslim as President of the United States, and heÂ’s hardly alone in that. Lindsey Graham, who is basically a gay, younger version of John McCain has been kissing Muslim ass since being elected to the Senate over 10 years ago. Now the choad who for whatever reason is running for president is showing his racism against Ben Carson and love of Muslims by demanding Carson apology. Lindsey Graham âś”...

    The Politico ^ | July 20, 2015 | Eliza Collins
    Sen. Lindsey Graham thinks real-estate mogul Donald Trump is a “jackass” and his comments about Sen. John McCain were the beginning of the end of his candidacy. “He’s bringing his name down and he’s not helping the process and he shouldn’t be commander in chief,” Graham said. The South Carolina senator was speaking on CNN’s “Out Front” on Monday, responding to Trump’s Saturday comment that McCain was not an American hero because he was taken prisoner by North Vietnamese forces. “He’s not a war hero,” said Trump. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who...

    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said Friday that real estate mogul Donald Trump’s rhetoric on immigration is “going to kill” the Republican Party and its chances of winning back the White House in 2016. Appearing on CNN’s “At This Hour” with hosts John Berman and Kate Bolduan, Graham argued that Trump’s comments on Mexican illegal immigrants is “going to destroy” the GOP’s chances of winning in 2016, adding further that the party “needs to be clear about how we handle this.”

    WISC-TV / CNN ^ | June 1, 2015 | Chris Moody, CNN Senior Digital Correspondent
    Lindsey Graham is aiming to buck 130 years of tradition. American voters haven't elected an unmarried president since 1885, the same year the Washington Monument was dedicated on the National Mall and the Statue of Liberty arrived in New York. Graham is barely registering in the polls. But if he were to win the White House, he would join an elite club that includes just two previous presidents unmarried at the time of their election. James Buchanan, who preceded Abraham Lincoln's presidency, never married. Grover Cleveland won election as a bachelor, but married a woman while he was in office...

    From President Barack Obama’s speech yesterday in Selma, Ala., celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery civil rights marches:[…] We’re the firefighters who rushed into those buildings on 9/11, the volunteers who signed up to fight in Afghanistan and Iraq. We’re the gay Americans whose blood ran in the streets of San Francisco and New York, just as blood ran down this bridge. (Applause.) […] That’s what America is. Not stock photos or airbrushed history, or feeble attempts to define some of us as more American than others. (Applause.) …

    During his breaking news coverage of the Supreme Court’s decision to hear four different cases challenging same-sex marriage bans in four different states this term — Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Tennessee — Fox News’ Shepard Smith compared the remaining resistance to marriage equality in this country to those who wanted to keep segregation intact during the Civil Rights Movement. “Not in every case, but in most cases, the same states which were fighting integration are fighting this as well,” Smith said. “Those states which always seem to be behind the curve for reasons which are explainable and understandable. Those are...

    Wow! Obama went off on National Journal reporter Major Garrett today during his press conference after the thumping he received in the midtern elections. “OK, let’s see. See, they may… OK, medical device tax… I’ve already answered, uh-uh, the question. We are going to take a look at whatever ideas… Let me take a look comprehensively at the ideas that they present. Let’s give em time to tell me… I’d rather hear it from them than from you. Major, you know, uh… conceivably I could cancel my meeting on Friday because I’ve heard everything from you. I think I’d rather...
  • The end of Sarah Palin: An Obama-era-novelty. As O's tenure ends, so does career of Sarah Barracuda

    After this weekend, it's probably safe to say that Sarah Palin is done. Like Jesse Ventura or Ross Perot, she may show up every once in a while to hurl red meat or use stunt cameos to remind us a little of her awkward charms. But recent events seem to confirm that she is an Obama-era novelty politician — and not much else. First she gave a speech to the NRA in which she joked that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists, offending people who otherwise make up her base. Next, Robert Costa reported on the ever-smaller crowds that have...

    President Obama will meet with several LGBT groups during his trip later this week to St. Petersburg, a move likely to ruffle Russian President Vladimir Putin after the recent passage of a series of anti-gay laws. The president will meet with human rights activists Lev Ponomarev and Lyudmila Alexeyeva, legal aid NGO director Pavel Chikov, and Coming Out, a St. Petersburg-based LGBT organization, according to a report in BuzzFeed. The decision to meet with the activists in not unprecedented — Obama also met with human rights leaders in 2009 — but comes amid a period of heightened tension with the...
  • Brian Williams Gushes Over Shirtless Obama Vacation Photos

    On Wednesday's NBC Nightly News, anchor Brian Williams took some time out from reporting the news of the day in order to fawn over President Obama's shirtless athletics on a beach in Hawaii, proclaiming: "...the photos that leaked from the President's vacation that may reverberate with middle aged men everywhere." As still shots of Obama in his bathing suit appeared on screen, Williams announced: "The photos that come out today may make it tougher for men of a certain age who go to the beach for summer vacation this year because a lot of guys are now going to be...

    Chris Matthews had an immediate reaction to President Obama’s statement on the ongoing unrest in Libya and it was not positive. Even liberal commentators Howard Fineman and David Corn agreed that Obama’s statement was weak, and since Libya is no Egypt, Obama will have to talk tougher in the future. Matthews’ surprising review of Obama’s speech: “This statement could have been put out by the first President Bush. It has the aspect of an Arabist statement. I shouldn’t be too strong here, but it doesn’t have any dignity. I mean – Ronald Reagan – to his credit, said ‘evil empire’...

    LAKE MARY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 News) - Thursday, Governor Crist vetoed the controversial teacher merit pay bill, breaking with conservative ranks. Then the head of the Republican U.S. Senate Re-election Committee issued a warning to Crist telling him his career is over if he tries to run outside the GOP. Dr. Foglesong said, "A person I know in the Charlie Crist campaign has told me Charlie Crist would veto the merit pay bill, and he did. Further, he said he would announce tomorrow, that's Friday, that he would run as an independent."
