    Howard Dean Compares Trump’s Voter Base to Neo-Nazis Burning Swastikas BY: Cameron Cawthorne April 23, 2018 8:33 pm Former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean on Monday equated President Donald Trump's voter base to Neo-Nazis burning a swastika down in Georgia over the weekend. Dean, a former Democratic presidential candidate, quote-tweeted a tweet by women's rights activist Amy Siskind that included a link to an article about Neo-Nazis who gathered for a rally over the weekend in Newnan, Georgia. "Trump base voters," Dean tweeted. Trump base voters. https://t.co/MIuradRgLw — Howard Dean (@GovHowardDean) April 23, 2018 "The neo-Nazi rally on Saturday...

    Judging by the rhetoric coming out of Tehran, John Bolton’s appointment as America’s National Security Advisor is the worst thing that ever happened. The Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council labeled Bolton’s appointment “a matter of shame.”  The Chairman of the Iranian Parliament's Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy declared,  "The use of hardline elements against the Islamic Republic of Iran shows that the Americans seek to exert more pressure on Iran.”First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri opined, “They (US officials) are wrong to assume that the Iranian nation will give in to their threats against the Islamic Republic.”  ...
  • “Watch it, Howard”: Dean Takes Shot at Hillary, and Sharpton Doesn’t Like It

    Who’s at the top of the list of people “relitigating 2016?” Hillary Clinton, of course, who has blamed her loss on everything from James Comey to the Curse of the Bambino. So on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show this morning, when Howard Dean emphatically instructed people relitigating 2016 to “leave us alone,” who do you think he had most in mind? Right. Sharpton apparently didn’t want his show to become a platform for criticizing Clinton: “Uh, uh, uh: watch it, Howard. You’re getting a little snippy.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    The defense of free speech has always been a bedrock bipartisan principle. So it’s unusual to hear a veteran liberal politician excuse campus outrage squads that shout down dissent. But that’s exactly what former Vermont governor and Democratic National Committee head Howard Dean did in a recent appearance.. Dean’s take on this was that there are “consequences to free speech.” He caricatured Erika Christakis’s thoughtful, sensitive letter as an ugly screed mocking “snowflake” students and defending racist costumes. He also described the protesters as well-behaved, despite their screaming and bullying. ... Dean is hardly alone...progressives on and off campus are...
  • EXCLUSIVE: Radical Dem Worked For Russian Lawyer Who Met With Trump, Jr.

    07/13/2017 6:48:49 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 23 replies
    Radical left-wing icon former California Democratic Rep. Ron Dellums was a hired lobbyist for Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. June 9, 2016, the Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned. Dellums, who represented liberal San Francisco and Oakland, Calif., is a long-time darling of left-wing political activists. He served 13 terms in Congress as an African-American firebrand and proudly called himself a socialist. He retired in 1996. The former congressman is one of several high-profile Democratic partisans who was on Veselnitskaya’s payroll, working to defeat a law that is the hated object of...
  • Who You Got in a Biden/Howard Dean Steel-Cage Match?

    Two men will enter the steel cage. Only one will exit. Who will it be? Yesterday, Howard Dean said that older members of the Dem party should “get the hell out of the way.” Responding later in the day, Joe Biden said: “tell Howard I can take him physically, okay?” As for the Tale of the Tape, we can say that—almost to the day—Biden is six years older than Dean: 75 vs. 69. Biden is a shade over 6 ft. tall, while Dean is a shade under 5′ 9″. No hard data on weight, but guessing that Biden outweighs Dean....

    Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said President Trump is "running a criminal enterprise" out of the White House. During a segment an MSNBC host said Trump is "constantly vacationing to promote his own properties." "The promotion is extraordinary. There hasn't been a president in my lifetime that's done anything like this," Dean said in response. "In the beginning, the constitutional business about the emoluments clause, which is you're not supposed to take foreign money to influence your policy, it didn't bother me, I thought it was a far-flung argument — I'm not an attorney." But Dean said it...

    Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean on Thursday slammed President Trump for having "no clue" how to lead the federal recovery effort in Puerto Rico, suggesting that the Clinton Foundation — run by the family of Trump's former opponent Hillary Clinton — handle it instead. "What we should do is turn over the rehab of Puerto Rico to the Clinton Foundation. They know what they are doing," said Dean, a Hillary Clinton supporter. Dean's tweet was in response to a comment made by President Trump earlier on Thursday in which he said that the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    On today’s Morning Joe, after accusing President Trump of “impairment,” Howard Dean said that “people keep talking about” the 25th Amendment as a means to remove the president from office. But Dean immediately poured cold water on the notion, saying “I personally think that’s probably hooey.” Law professor Jonathan Turley agreed with Dean: “Yes, indeed, that falls under the constitutional doctrine of hooey.” Turley went on to describe the complicated procedures under the 25th Amendment, which would ultimately require a two-thirds majority in both houses of congress. Concluded Turley: “the 25th Amendment is not a really good option.” View the...

    Howard Dean lumped white supremacists and the GOP together when he warned voters not to vote for racists. "If you want to vote for a racist in the White House, then you better vote for Republicans," the former governor of Vermont said on MSNBC on Saturday. Dean stated that Trump has "no moral character" but added that he is in the minority since "there’s a lot more decent Americans than there are the kind of people who were supporting the folks in Charlottesville." "Today in the 2018 elections, if you vote for a Republican, you’re supporting Donald Trump. This has...

    Former DNC chair criticizes ‘whiny’ left By Julia Manchester - 08/05/17 07:40 PM EDT Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Howard Dean ripped what he called the "whiny" portion of the Democratic Party on Saturday in response to criticism of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) by a number of progressives. “There has always been a section of the left, which I call the whiny party — the party that doesn’t really wanna win, they just wanna be pure, and if they go down swinging purely, then that’s fine," Dean, who ran for president in 2004, told MSNBC's Joy Reid on "AM...

He’s going to lie. He’s going to do all these things he does. And the real savior for democracy is going to be Robert Mueller. He’s going to find out the truth. We’re never going to get the truth...

    By Kevin Baker | July 3, 2017 4:54 PM EDT Howard Dean appeared on Monday’s MSNBC Live with Katy Tur and went on an unhinged rant against the state of American politics. He began by first stating that, “the right has been out of step with America for a long time.” This naturally prompted the question by Tur as to why Republicans then control the presidency and Congress. Dean answered by labeling far-right Trump voters as people “with guns that want to shoot up the place” and the NRA as a “white supremacist organization.” Tur only offered a tepid condemnation...

    Former Vermont governor and Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean offered his flawed interpretation of the First Amendment last week during the Ann Coulter-Berkeley controversy. The school cancelled Coulter's scheduled appearance on campus after they decided the conservative speaker would create too dangerous of an environment. They then re-invited her, but rescheduled her speech. Coulter insists she's coming on the original date - this Thursday. Between all the back and forth, Dean defended Berkeley's initial decision to nix the speech, tweeting that "hate speech" is not protected by the Constitution. Putting aside the fact that Dean thinks conservatism amounts to hate speech, Guy explained just how wrong Dean was -...

    "This is an increasingly common idea, and is not just restricted to failed presidential candidates. It is also an extremely insidious idea, for “hate speech,” contrary to popular belief, is not an objectively quantifiable entity. One’s person’s “hate speech” is another’s outspoken defense of liberty and justice. And there is no basis in the Constitution, or in the numerous Supreme Court decisions interpreting it up to now, for the claim that there is any exclusion of “hate speech” from First Amendment protection. The label of “hate speech” is a tool in the hands of the powerful that they use to...

    Joe Scarborough was shocked, shocked to hear yesterday that Democrats have no room for pro-life views from former DNC chair and governor Howard Dean, but … didn’t we already know this? Scarborough told Dean that former governor Steven Beshear — whom the DNC tapped to give a forgettable response to Donald Trump’s speech last week — harkened back to an era where Democrats used to win by sharing the values of voters in their regions, including pro-life and pro-gun positions. Dean responds by claiming ownership of the next generation (via Matt Vespa): CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO “No....
