    Horror novelist Stephen King took to Twitter Friday to call for President Donald Trump to be “removed” from office. “Donald Trump is unfit for office. Needs to be removed,” the author wrote. The social media missive was just the latest attack King has lodged at President Trump in recent months. Last month, the 69-year-old Dark Tower author called Trump “fake” in a Twitter post that went viral online. “The news is real. The president is fake.” he wrote. King, however, wasn’t the only celebrity to call for Trump’s removal from office Friday. Comedian Chelsea Handler urged the president’s generals to...

    A former spokesman for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign is now openly questioning the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s victory.Brian Fallon appeared on CNN Friday morning and was asked to respond to a couple tweets sent out by Donald Trump. He replied, “Well, I think those tweets are just the latest indication that Donald Trump is someone who is very insecure in his victory, and I understand why. Every day there are new developments — new shoes dropping, so to speak — that call into question the legitimacy of his win.” Fallon continued, “I think Donald Trump is just trying to...

    Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign issued a explainer condemning a cartoon frog meme for allegedly being a symbol of white supremacy. The “Donald Trump, Pepe the frog, and white supremacists” explainer includes an image shared by Republican presidential Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., referencing Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” statement:

    Hillary Clinton Campaign Website ^ | September 13, 2016 | Elizabeth Chan
    Over the weekend, Donald Trump’s son and one of his closest advisers posted an odd photo on their social media accounts: This raised some important questions. Why is there a frog standing directly behind Trump? That’s Pepe. He’s a symbol associated with white supremacy. Wait. Really? White supremacy? That’s right. Please explain. Here’s the short version: Pepe is a cartoon frog who began his internet life as an innocent meme enjoyed by teenagers and pop stars alike. But in recent months, Pepe’s been almost entirely co-opted by the white supremacists who call themselves the “alt-right.” They’ve decided to take back...

    Hillary Clinton may have been unwise to say half of Donald Trump's supporters are racists and other "deplorables." But she wasn’t wrong. If anything, when it comes to Trump's racist support, she might have low-balled the number.

    “If you’re a white Southerner, you know exactly what it means.” Former President Bill Clinton on Wednesday said Donald Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” is a racist dog whistle. “I’m actually old enough to remember the good old days, and they weren’t all that good in many ways,” Clinton said at a rally in Orlando. “That message where ‘I’ll give you America great again’ is if you’re a white Southerner, you know exactly what it means, don’t you?” “What it means is ‘I’ll give you an economy you had 50 years ago, and I’ll move you back up...

    Media Have a ‘Cry Wolf’ Problem with Trump Decades of smearing decent Republican candidates leaves them without credibility on Trump’s demagoguery. By Jonah Goldberg — July 27, 2016 Dear Mainstream Media and Democrats: It’s your turn. Now that Donald Trump has been formally nominated, the formal responsibility to stop him passes from the Right to the Left, from Republicans to Democrats and the journalists who amplify their values. You’re going to find it a very tough slog. And it’s your own damn fault. During the primaries, the task of exposing the true nature of the Trump takeover fell disproportionately to...

    Democratic leader: GOP base ‘animated by racism’ By S.A. Miller WASHINGTON – A prominent House Democratic leader showed his contempt for Republican voters Sunday, accusing a large portion of them of being racists. “To a significant extent the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that’s unfortunate,” said Long Island Rep. Steve Israel said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Israel, who is chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, was only slightly less insulting to his Republican colleagues on Capitol Hill. Asked if they were racists, Israel responded: “Not all of them, of course not.”...

    WASHINGTON — Federal employee unions and members of Congress from Maryland, D.C. and Virginia – all Democrats – denounced House Republicans and lamented the financial pain of federal employees caused by the government shutdown during a press conference outside the Capitol Tuesday afternoon. In a political game of chicken, congressional Republicans sought this week to pass a spending bill that also defunded the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare. Because Democrats refused to budge and Republicans held fast on the legislation to defund Obamacare — parts of which went into effect Tuesday — nearly 800,000 federal employees were furloughed from...

  • MSNBC's Richard Wolffe Smears McCain as a Bigot: 'There's No Other Way to Look at It'

    Former top Newsweek journalist and current MSNBC.com editor Richard Wolffe on Monday smeared Senator John McCain as a racist. According to Wolffe, there's no legitimate reason for the Republican to oppose Susan Rice's confirmation for Secretary of State. Appearing on Hardball, the journalist sneered that it was "outrageous" the way McCain was acting, raging against "this witch hunt going on the right about these people of color, let's face it, around this president. Eric Holder, Valerie Jarrett, now Susan Rice." Such a charge seemed to shock even Chris Matthews. He sputtered, "McCain, who had his own daughter attacked, was accused...

    It didn't take long for liberals in the blogosphere to make backhanded and blatantly false accusations of racism against Congressman Paul Ryan, and you're not going to believe the rationale used for leveling the accusation. Apparently, Paul Ryan is a racist because.... Here's the scoop. Kelli Goff, the political writer for The Root, informs us that Ryan not only has a "Black sister-in-law," but that "his 'college sweetheart' was African-American" as well. And how, in heaven's name, do those facts make Ryan a racist? They don't, but that didn't stop Goff from using convoluted and almost comical 'reasoning' to make...

    Gateway Pundit ^ | July 28,2012 | Jim Hoft
    Today Barack Obama blamed his four years of trillion dollar deficits on the Bush tax cuts. From the president’s Weekly Address: You see, Republicans in Congress and their nominee for President believe that the best way to create prosperity in America is to let it trickle down from the top. They believe that if our country spends trillions more on tax cuts for the wealthy, we’ll somehow create jobs – even if we have to pay for it by gutting things like education and training and by raising middle-class taxes. They’re wrong. And I know they’re wrong because we already...

    Disagreement continues to be defined as racism by the Democrat party. Speaking on the John Fredericks Morning Show, State Sen. Louise Lucas, part of President Obama’s “Truth Team” and an official member of the campaign, accused Mitt Romney of gearing his campaign in Virginia to “fringe racists” which, one can only assume, is anyone that opposes President Obama. Her racial tirade was in response to comments made by Mitt Romney when he was interviewed on the same shows a few weeks prior. In that interview, Romney concluded that President Obama having never held a job in the private sector causes...
