  • Amber Tamblyn Has A Lot to Learn About Trans Women's Reproductive Rights

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | July 26, 2016 | Elizabeth Harrington
    Following a 30-minute conversation on "intersectionality" and millennial feminism, a reporter asked the (DNC) panel for its thoughts on reproductive rights and women's health issues for men who ascribe to a female gender identity. Ayanna Pressley, a Boston city councilor at-large, said the issue of men who identify as women getting abortions is all about "elevated consciousness." . . When asked if trans women are "being denied their reproductive rights" Pressley was stumped. "You got me on that one." Tamblyn chimed in, arguing that the reproductive rights of trans women are at the forefront of the conversation at Planned Parenthood,...

    He said the final published version of the report promoted the labour market case for immigration but unpublished versions contained additional reasons, he said. He wrote: "Earlier drafts I saw also included a driving political purpose: that mass immigration was the way that the Government was going to make the UK truly multicultural. "I remember coming away from some discussions with the clear sense that the policy was intended – even if this wasn't its main purpose – to rub the Right's nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date."

    AT LEAST one person has been killed and 12 more are injured after a Syrian asylum seeker blew himself outside a wine bar in Germany. The attack took place in Ansbach, near Nuremburg, after the 27-year-old was denied access to the nearby Ansbach Open music festival, according to Germany's interior minister Joachim Herrmann. Hermann said the suspect, who was known to police, had lived in Germany for two years but was denied asylum in the country a year ago. He said it is unclear if the suspect intended to kill others or just himself but said he had “tried to...

    For U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, there aren't enough characters on Twitter to describe Republican nominee Donald Trump, so instead she took to the stage at the National Council of La Raza conference in Orlando, unleashing a burning indictment of the businessman to about 300 people. Calling Trump a "loud-mouthed fraud," "thin-skinned" and "a man with cash in his hand and hate in his heart," Warren says presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and her running mate Tim Kaine must be the next president and vice president respectively. "Trump will never be president of the United States," she says to the cheering...

    The head of the Democratic National Committee will not speak at the party's convention next week, a decision reached by party officials Saturday after emails surfaced that raised questions about the committee's impartiality during the Democratic primary. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, whose stewardship of the DNC has been under fire through most of the presidential primary process, will not have a major speaking role in an effort "to keep the peace" in the party, a Democrat familiar with the decision said. The revelation comes following the release of nearly 20,000 emails. One email appears to show DNC staffers asking how they...

    PHILADELPHIA — When President Obama takes the stage here this week to begin his monthslong political farewell, it will mark a bittersweet moment for Democrats. Mr. Obama is not going to be missed only because he is beloved by the faithful. The president has also fulfilled two longstanding if often elusive goals of his party: He has largely transcended the traditional moderate-versus-liberal split, papering over internal divisions. And he passed a sweeping health care law. But without the unifying presence of Mr. Obama in the White House, or the organizing aim of expanding health care, it is unclear who will...

    On July 25, the Democratic National Convention will begin in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. To commensurate the event and its embrace of corrupt politician Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee, Wikileaks is releasing thousands of DNC/Clinton emails. In its recent leak of 20,000 DNC emails from January 2015 to May 2016, DNC staff discuss how to deal with Bernie Sanders’ popularity as a challenge to Clinton’s candidacy. Instead of treating Sanders as a viable candidate for the Democratic ticket, the DNC worked against him and his campaign to ensure Clinton received the nomination.

This racism has led to the deaths of a disproportionate number of innocent black Americans. In order to stop this heinous activity, we need more gun control legislation, more wealth redistribution, more job and education programs, and thus Americans need to elect more Democrats...

Speaking at an address in Virginia Beach originally billed as a veterans policy speech, Trump opened by discussing the deep challenges police face. “We will always stand with you,” Trump said.

FBI policy is not to record interviews as part of its investigations. Yet...

While people such as Obama and Clinton continue to push for alternative energy by acting as if it’s a surefire way to lower energy costs, Germany has proven that a lie. The German government has officially declared it will cease building any new offshore wind turbines in an effort to lower energy costs for the European Union’s richest nation.

But the plans have been described as an 'ultimatum' in Poland, with claims it would mean countries transfer their armies, economic systems and border controls to the EU.

An important caveat is that I was not there and am relying on both reading between the lines of media reports and on local Sacramento talk radio.

    The rise of Yiannopoulos can help to explain the rise of Donald Trump. Both have attracted followers that feel silenced, ignored, and invalidated by the left. Both will continue to receive sympathy and exposure if their opponents continue to aggressively and instinctually dismiss their views. And perhaps both can be defeated—or at least weakened—through respectful and empathic discourse. More broadly, the story of Yiannopoulos is useful to understand today’s political climate. There is an ever-growing number of Americans—liberals and conservatives—who feel like their voices are not being heard. Americans are increasingly identifying with their party, race, gender, or sexuality—and are...

    Baltimore Officer in Freddie Gray Case Is Cleared of All Charges ^ | June 23, 2016 | JESS BIDGOOD and SHERYL GAY STOLBERG
    BALTIMORE — The Baltimore police officer who drove the van in which Freddie Gray sustained a fatal spinal injury was acquitted on Thursday of second-degree murder and six lesser charges, leaving prosecutors still without a conviction after three high-profile trials in a case that has shaken this city. In his ruling, Judge Barry G. Williams rejected the prosecution’s claim that the officer, Caesar R. Goodson Jr., had given Mr. Gray a “rough ride” in the van, intentionally putting him at risk for an injury by taking a wide turn while Mr. Gray was not secured with a seatbelt. “The court...

    A jury has convicted veteran U.S. Congressman Chaka Fattah in a racketeering case that largely centered on various efforts to repay an illegal $1 million campaign loan. Fattah was found guilty of all 22 counts against him, including racketeering, fraud and money laundering. His lawyers had argued that schemes were engineered without Fattah's knowledge by two political consultants who pleaded guilty in the case. Fattah's jovial and calm demeanor didn't change much as the verdict was read....
  • Like Trump today, the GOP tried to reject Calvin Coolidge but ended up glad to have him

    The Coach's Team ^ | 6/21/16 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    After a war no one wanted and eight years of the devious and racially divisive Democrat Woodrow Wilson, America was ready for a change and “return to normalcy.” Nevertheless, it took until the tenth ballot at their 1920 nominating convention for Republicans to select Calvin Coolidge as their presidential candidate even though few thought could win. But the plain speaking Coolidge did win and went to work immediately to fix the Democrat mess that had put America in a deep recession that caused the unemployment rate to hit 15%. In just six months of saying ‘No” to new spending and...

    The Secret Service agent who guarded President Clinton during his sexual affair with Monica Lewinsky says the president was actually having sexual relations with numerous mistresses, including Eleanor Mondale, the daughter of former Vice President Walter Mondale. In his forthcoming tell-all book, “Crisis of Character,” Gary J. Byrne describes how he walked in on Bill Clinton and Ms. Mondale. “There before us was E! Network host Eleanor Mondale … and President Clinton in a compromising position, that is, making out on the Map Room table,” Byrne writes of the alleged Christmastime event during the middle of Clinton’s presidency, according to...

    Newsbusters/Media Research Center ^ | June 20, 2016 | Rich Noyes
    Voters who have relied on the network evening newscasts for information about the 2016 presidential candidates saw four times more airtime devoted to controversies involving presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump than to the scandals surrounding his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. Indeed, the only Clinton scandal to receive more than a minimal amount of attention from the networks during the primaries was the ongoing investigation of Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server and her mishandling of classified information while serving as Secretary of State. The networks paid little or no attention to a host of other Clinton controversies that likely...
  • DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz Is Finally Kicked to the Curb

    DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has turned over her duties to Brandon Davis, National Political Coordinator for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), who was installed by the Clinton campaign. Wasserman Schultz will retain her title as DNC Chair until the Democratic Party votes on a successor. While Democratic presidential nominees traditionally appoint election managers after the primaries end—as Barack Obama did in 2008—the alleged removal of Wasserman Schultz as DNC chair was nothing more than a publicity stunt. In effect, the move allows Clinton to tout an image of responding to Wasserman Schultz’s poor favorability without actually having to...
