    New York lawmakers have some to the defense of congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez following a report which claims that her fellow democrats are avoiding her while they plan to combat the coronavirus. The report from the New York Post claims that Cortez's peers are ignoring her over fears she will overshadow the work they are doing to combat the virus in an area with one of the highest infection rates in the entire world. The report, based on unnamed sources, claims that Ocasio-Cortez "simply rubs many of her fellow New York Democrats the wrong way." Ocasio-Cortez has become one the most...

  • 'Atrocity after atrocity': Omar says Trump should be treated like mob boss

    Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar suggested that Democrats should handle President Trump’s impeachment in the same way prosecutors took down mob bosses such as Al Capone. During an interview on MSNBC, Omar, 38, warned Democrats against including issues beyond the Ukraine situation in the articles of impeachment. Some Democrats have suggested including obstruction of justice, details from the Mueller report, and even Trump’s “bigotry and racism” as part of the foundation to impeach. Omar said Trump’s alleged wrongdoing with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is the best option for impeachment. “I believed that there were multiple reasons for us to move impeachment...

    Ken Cuccinelli, acting deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, left a popular D.C. pub on Wednesday evening after Martin O’Malley, the former governor of Maryland (D), raised his voice and berated him regarding the Trump administration’s immigration policies. Both Cuccinelli and O’Malley appeared at the Dubliner in the nation’s capital, a choice pub for Gonzaga High School graduates. “Both men attended the school, graduating five years apart in the 1980s,” the Washington Post notes. According to one witness, Siobhan Houton Arnold, Cuccinelli walked into the bar, and O’Malley proceeded to berate him regarding the Trump administration’s immigration policies,...
  • Tom Steyer spent $109,000 per second he spoke during 2020 presidential debate

    WESTERVILLE, Ohio — Tom Steyer failed to make a splash in his first Democratic presidential primary debate despite spending the equivalent of $109,000 per second he spoke on the stage. The 62-year-old billionaire hedge fund king-turned-impeachment activist had the least amount of speaking time of the 12 candidates during Tuesday's debate, about 7 minutes, while most other candidates got 12 minutes or more to answer moderator questions and make their points. Steyer, who has pledged to spend $100 million of his own money on his presidential bid, gave his campaign a whopping $47.6 million from his July launch through the...

    James Comey [snip] daydreams about deleting the civic-minded Twitter feed where a bipartisan coalition pronounces him a national disgrace. He sleeps soundly — 9 hours a night, he ballparks — and organizes the self-described “unemployed celebrity” chapter of his life around a series of workaday goals. “One of my goals has been to get to 10 consecutive pull-ups,” Mr. Comey said in an interview, legs crossed on the back porch [snip]. “I’m at nine now. So, I’ve been doing a lot of pull-ups.” He writes and thinks and reads and worries from a tidy downstairs office surrounded by the trinkets...

    White House hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Wednesday released a $2.5 trillion plan to guarantee housing for every American. Sanders said the plan would “guarantee every American — regardless of income — a fundamental right to a safe, decent, accessible, and affordable home” and would be paid for by a wealth tax on the top one-tenth of 1 percent of income earners. “There is virtually no place in America where a full-time minimum wage worker can afford a decent two bedroom apartment. At a time when half of our people are living paycheck to paycheck, this is unacceptable,” he...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden likened the cultural effects of President Trump's election to the assassinations of former Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., in a Saturday interview with Al Sharpton. During a discussion in South Carolina that touched on criminal justice reform, Biden argued that Trump's rise to power had awakened an entire generation to the necessity of getting involved in politics, much like the violent murders of political figures did for baby boomers in the 1960s. "I think what’s happening now is, I think that Donald Trump may have reawakened sensibilities in this country...

    Many FReepers have knowledge to share about improving and maintaining health and would like to share it and learn from others; and others may not know much yet but want to learn. Some of us don't have much money for good insurance or doctors, some want to try other methods besides prescription meds, and some have experience in treating and solving health problems. More and more "regular" doctors have accepted treatment methods such as the benefits of acupuncture, massage for many conditions, better diet, use of herbs and so on. There are limits, and often side effects, to some standard...

    Nebraska state Sen. Ernie Chambers on Tuesday compared the American flag with the Nazi swastika on the floor of the legislature. “I don't come here for this rag every day, and it's a rag. That's all it is to me,” said Chambers about respecting the flag. “When you show a way to persuade Jews to sanctify and worship the swastika, when you show me that I'll come up here and stand while you all hypocritically pretend that rag is something that it definitely is not.“ The comments were in response to a bill put before the Nebraska legislature that would...

    After approximately eight hours perched atop the Southwest Key building, a protester finally came back to ground level and into police custody Wednesday night. The woman, who garnered national attention in July 2018 by climbing the Statue of Liberty as part of an immigration protest, was spotted in Austin on Wednesday performing another protest. Therese "Patricia" Okoumou, 44, climbed Austin's Southwest Key building surrounded by police and EMS officials. Seventy officers were on the scene throughout the day, straining police resources in the area. Southwest Key is a local contractor that houses immigrant children who are detained at the border....

    Rep. Ed Case apologized Wednesday after he claimed at an event for Asian American and Pacific Islander voters that he’s an “Asian trapped in a white body.” Mr. Case, a Hawaii Democrat, sparked a social media backlash over the reported comment he made Tuesday at a Washington event billed as a “celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander members of the 116th Congress.” According to National Journal fellow Nicholas Wu, Mr. Case, who represents a majority Asian district in Honolulu, declared at the event, “I’m an Asian trapped in a white body.”

    The Cook Political Report ^ | October 9, 2018 | Charles E. Cook
    There are a lot of great political stories out there right now, so it’s easy to miss that the biggest one might be happening below the federal level. Nationally, what appears to be the blue Democratic tidal wave is arguably really a pink wave, with women voters, donors, and candidates driving much of the movement in favor of Democrats. We are seeing eye-popping gender gaps, with the Republican edge among men dwarfed by the Democratic advantage among women. In the mid-September NBC News/Wall Street Journal national poll, men narrowly favored Republicans in preference for control of the House, 47 to...

    "Our civil servants have failed us," he said in a statement.______ Robert Redford may be done acting, but he’s not riding off into the sunset anytime soon. The actor, filmmaker, and Sundance Film Festival founder published “A Brief Statement About Big Things” on the Sundance Institute’s website yesterday, writing that he feels “out of place in the country I was born into” for the first time he can remember and that he has “watched with sadness as our civil servants have failed us.” The overtly political speech was published the same day that Brett Kavanaugh’s ascension to the Supreme Court...

Nobody should hold their breath over the weekend waiting on Professor Christine Blasey Ford’s Big Tease about showing up for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s hearings next week, because much more than their faces could turn blue. “Will she or won’t she?” has become the front page headline of the day.

    The woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault came forward with her explosive allegations on Sunday, saying the supposed attack "derailed me substantially for four or five years" and claiming that the episode rendered her "unable to have healthy relationships with men." The woman, Christine Ford, is a professor at Palo Alto University, according to The Washington Post, which published her account on Sunday. Her decision to go public caps a whirlwhind week that began when Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., sent shockwaves through Washington by releasing a statement saying she turned over information about Kavanaugh from an...

    Politicizing the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks by comparing alleged Russian hackers to the al Qaeda hijackers who killed 3,000 Americans? For shame. Maine Senator Angus King, an Independent who votes with Democrats, made these comments this morning in Lewiston, Maine. He said that 9/11 was "the beginning of an attack that's continuing today. They used airplanes into towers, now people can use the click of a computer key in St. Petersburg, Russia."
