    Angry Patriot ^ | November 10, 2016
    Riots have broken out across the country as people are protesting Donald Trump winning the presidential election fair and square. Since his victory, hate has been spread all over the country by the so called “love spreading” liberals. Now, on Craigslist, they are trying to rent people to show up and protest Donald Trump. And guess who is organizing it? George Soros, Hillary Clinton’s major donor and supporter, as per Breitbart.com.This call for rioters was organized by MoveOn.org, which is gathering in “peaceful” protest of the so-called bigotry many Americans believe Trump has.Do these factions of anti-Trump black, Hispanic, and LGBT Americans really think...

    MoveOn.org, a liberal activist group that has exploded all across the nation, is funded by Soros’ Open Society Foundations. It is now well known that MoveOn.org was responsible for many of the riots and protests at Donald Trump’s campaign rallies, some of which became violent and dangerous. Wednesday – the day following Trump’s victory – MoveOn.org moved into action. The group put out a notice on their Facebook page, announcing they would conduct “peaceful gatherings of resistance” all across the country Wednesday evening.

    Dear MoveOn member, Donald Trump's violent, bullying political rhetoric has escalated in the past few days. Over the weekend, he singled out MoveOn from the stage of his rallies twice, and it has resulted in some of the ugliest online attacks on MoveOn that we've ever seen: His supporters have flooded MoveOn's inboxes with hate mail. In the face of these attacks, we refuse to back down or remain silent. Fox News mentioned MoveOn more than 150 times over the weekend, egging on Trump supporters. MoveOn is not funded by mega-corporations like Fox. Instead, we rely on our millions of...

    Is the media inciting violence against Donald Trump? Frank Chung THE media wants a member of the public to kill Donald Trump. That’s the view of a growing number of commentators, who have sounded warnings about the increasingly dangerous tone to media reporting around the Republican presidential hopeful. In a lengthy blog post, Scott Adams, the creator of the popular Dilbert comic strip, has slammed the media for “priming the public to try to kill Trump”, likening the conduct to the death of Princess Diana in 1997. The author recalled how a mere three months earlier, in his book The...

Over 25,000 Trump supporters were to attend the rally, which Mr. Trump cancelled based on security concerns from the Chicago Police and the Secret Service. Both the Chicago Police and the Secret Service feared a riot breaking out had Mr. Trump attended. In a continuation of a fearful trend among America’s youth, the protesters who were mainly University of Illinois college students demanded that Trump be prohibited from...

The ratings come from Ace Metrix, a television analytics company that uses large online panels to rate the effectiveness of TV commercials. The company's political unit found that Cruz's campaign produced five of the 11 top-scoring ads among Republican voters this election, including the single most effective ad of the GOP primary so far...

The tally revealed by MoveOn.org comes after Thursday’s announcement from the presumptive next Senate Democratic leader, which sparked a swift and vocal backlash from liberal activists. Monday’s totals are evidence of outrage among the Democratic Party’s base, MoveOn said, which should compel Democratic lawmakers to fall in line and support the agreement. “While Sen.

The issues go far beyond whether NIAC has been illegally operating without registering as a foreign agent, and have ensnared NIAC’s close ally, none other than J Street. First, NIAC is a Soros-backed group. Soros is of course the money behind MoveOn.org and got J Street up and running. He is also paying “the $90,000 annual salary of the NIAC staffer, Patrick Disney.” The Left’s moneyman is plainly in the mullah’s corner....

But it has now come out that for two years, Hillary Clinton blocked efforts to add Boko Haram to the State Department’s list of terrorist organizations.

    The “progressive” activist group MoveOn.org posted a television commercial to You Tube yesterday featuring a self-proclaimed gun rights proponent warning politicians of electoral consequences if they don’t support more “gun control” laws. “The six-figure ad buy is running for a week on national cable and will air during the Sunday morning political talk shows,” The Hill reported. "I'm a gun owner and a proud defender of the Second Amendment, but for years I've watched Congress take money from the NRA and then oppose any kind of reform that helps keep us safe," a man identified in the video as Ohio...
  • Obama’s Amazing Achievements: His military intervention prompted some stunning reversals. (VDH)

    Obama’s Amazing AchievementsHis military intervention prompted some stunning reversals. By bombing Libya, President Obama has accomplished some things once thought absolutely impossible in America:(a) War-mongering liberals: Liberals are now chest-thumping about military “progress” in Libya. Even liberal television and radio commentators cite ingenious reasons why an optional, preemptive American intervention in an oil-producing Arab country, without prior congressional approval or majority public support — and at a time of soaring deficits — is well worth supporting, in a sort of “my president, right or wrong,” fashion. Apparently, liberal foreign policy is returning to the pre-Vietnam days of the hawkish “best...
  • Michael Moore Produces Incredibly Vile Campaign Video for MoveOn.org

    Michael Moore has produced a campaign video for MoveOn.org so vile that he has to be considered guilty of elderly abuse for having the senior citizens say the words that Moore & Co. wrote in the script. The video supposedly takes place at Rosebud Nursing Home and the script calls for some of the residents there to use the foulest of language to express their anger at what is described is "Republican voter suppression." What this video really represents is an incredible anger on the part of the Left and how they won't be able to accept the election result...

    SARASOTA, Fla. — Supporters and opponents of Mitt Romney faced off outside of the Republican nominee's rally here in an at-times-violent confrontation. As hundreds of Romney supporters lined the sidewalk outside the Ringling Museum of Art, a group of more than 20 protestors carrying an effigy of Romney marched in and confronted them as both sides chanted. One of the men leading the protest, organized by Occupy and Move-On according to demonstrators, repeatedly cut into the Romney line — drawing pushing and shoving. “Get a job, I worked my 50 years,” shouted one Romney supporter at the demonstrators. One man,...

    If you asked Americans who carries the most clout in political funding, liberals would typically answer corporations, while conservatives might name labor unions, and both would have a point, but few would probably think to mention a PAC called ActBlue. In fact, however, since its launch in June 2004, this PAC has become America's top political donor, ahead of both the AFSCME and AT&T in contributions made between 1989 and 2012, according to data compiled from FEC sources by the Center for Responsive Politics. According to ActBlue's own website, the organization had raised over $290 million in contributions as of...

    That’s the message in the skies above today’s Romney/Ryan rally in Powell, Oiho Ohio. Courtesy of Jan Crawford at CBS News, here’s a banner ad that’s being flown overhead: Yep. “Better then.” That’s what it says. Maeve Reston at the LA Times says MoveOn.org is responsible for this. That makes sense, because they’re super-smart. Speaking of words that people don’t know how to use, I’ve been informed by my old pal Dave Weigel (@daveweigel) that I’m a “birther.” The reason I’m a “birther” is that I think Obama was born in Hawaii. I’m also a “birther” because when Obama wants...

    2nd 'potatoe' moment this week for campaign in Ohio If Barack Obama carries the key swing state of Ohio in November, it won’t be because he and his supporters know how to spell. Today, at a Republican rally in Powell, Ohio, an airplane pulling a banner attempted to capitalize on Mitt Romney’s “joke” yesterday in Michigan about not needing to show his birth certificate. The Democrats have responded by accusing Romney of having joined the “birthers,” and the airplane banner continued that theme. Unfortunately, the supporters who sponsored the banner – MoveOn.org, as reported by a Los Angeles Times reporter...

    MoveOn.org is out with a four-minute video that’s been showing up on the interwebz, most notably Facebook, with this enticing title: “This video MIGHT stop Romney from becoming president.” In the video, two GenXers reveal to you with cheerful sincerity the GOP’s three-pronged strategy to get Mitt Romney elected president, and, as you can well imagine, it’s all part of a dire “racist” plot funded by the Koch Brothers. I exaggerate….but nowhere near as much as the video does.If you can stand to watch it, it’s below, but here’s a summary of their major “prongs:”Prong 1:The GOP has been sabotaging...
  • Horse Hockey: The Left’s Rafalca Derangement Syndrome

    Rafalca is the name of Ann Romney’s show horse, which competed in Olympic dressage this week. Rafalca Derangement Syndrome is the name of a debilitating partisan disease, which is raging among snotty “progressives” posing as populists. On Thursday, the George Soros-funded henchmen of MoveOn promoted a new TV ad that “features a talking Rafalca Romney, who tells us Mitt would treat many Americans worse than a horse!” Interspersed with scenes of a dressage competition, the talking Rafalca mimics a faux British accent and lashes out at the Romneys’ privately earned wealth:“How do I pull off such grace and athleticism...
  • Did MoveOn.org and BarackObama.com Promote Hate Speech?

    The American Thinker ^ | 6/12/12 | William A. Levinson
    The answer to this question depends on how much responsibility a moderated discussion forum has to exclude racist, anti-Semitic, and other forms of hate speech. MoveOn.org and BarackObama.com have both argued that, as anybody can post anything to their discussion forums, they are not responsible for the content. "Exercise of editorial control" was, on the other hand, the doctrine under which Prodigy was held legally responsible for libelous material that somebody posted on a discussion board over which Prodigy exercised such control, although Congress later passed legislation to mitigate or eliminate civil liability in such cases. The bottom line is,...
  • MoveOn.org: We May Have to Pull the Plug on Elizabeth Warren

    The news just keeps getting worse for Elizabeth Warren. The Washington Examiner reports today that even the left wing group Moveon.org is admitting they may have to pull the plug on the Elizabeth Warren campaign. Though the article quotes Moveon.org officials as placing their possible abandonment of Warren in the context of an overall decline in contributions, the guarded phrasing sounds on ominous tone for the beleaguered Massachusetts Democrat and candidate for U.S. Senate, who this weekend faces a grass-roots challenge from feisty immigration attorney Marisa DeFranco. According to this afternoon’s article in the Examiner: Without a rush of new...
