    Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) ^ | Nov 08 2017 | Senator Patty Murray (D-WA)
    While theres no one solution to the epidemic of gun violence, its past time for Congress to take common sense steps to strengthen critical safeguards and stem the tide of rising gun violence plaguing our communities.(Washington, D.C.) Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) joined a number of her colleagues today to introduce the Assault Weapons Ban of 2017, a bill to ban the sale, transfer, manufacture and importation of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.From last months horrific scene on the Las Vegas strip to the heart-wrenching stories coming out of Sutherland Springs, TX, too often weve had to reach...
  • 64 percent of Americans support legalizing marijuana, 51 percent of Republicans

    10/25/2017 1:14:49 PM PDT · by JP1201 · 106 replies
    A new Gallup poll shows growing support for marijuana legalization, with 64 percent of Americans now in favor of the measure. The number is the highest level of support in nearly half a century of surveying adults on the issue, according to Gallup. Support has steadily increased in recent years, with the latest figure up 4 percentage points over last year and up 14 points from 2011. The poll also showed a majority of Republicans favoring legalization for the first time, with 51 percent expressing support. That number is up 9 percentage points from last year, according to Gallup.
  • Trump Is Just Six Senate Votes Away From Impeachment

    At some point in 2019 (if not sooner) a Republican Senator may walk into the Oval Office and say to President Trump: Mr. President, we dont have the votes, at which point the Trump presidency will end in a resignation or a conviction in the Senate. This scenario actually occurred forty-three years ago this summer when Republican Senator Barry Goldwater walked into the Oval Office and told Republican President Richard Nixon that they didnt have the votes in the Senate to save his presidency.
  • PENCE'S ROLE

    11/09/2016 2:02:05 PM PST · by DIRTYSECRET · 58 replies
    I really think Mike Pence will be the one running the country. He's experienced and will just keep Trump informed. Details(nuts and bolts) will not be the Trump's department. I see Pence holding the reins as the stagecoach moves along in the right direction. Trump will be riding shotgun like a bouncer in a night club. Trump needs the limelight so he can travel and be the Pied Piper of capitalism. If successful Pence will move seamless into the Oval Office after 8 years-maybe 6!

    The Daily Beast ^ | August 4th, 2016 | Colin Fleming
    In the spring of 1966, riding high on the artistic success of Rubber Soul, the Beatles went into the studio to begin crafting what would become their greatest record. It is spring 1966, and the Beatles are ensconced in Londons EMI Studios, where they have embarked upon their latest manipulation of time. The Christmas season just passed had seen the release of the bands sixth album, Rubber Soul, a game-changer of a disc that wedded American rhythm and blues to English folk music, as if the two genres were meant to go together all along. The Beatles, as the popsmiths-cum-pied...

    Time and again Ted Cruz slammed the door in his own face. Donald Trump, on the other hand, has the Midas Touch of politics. One recent national poll showed Trump at 53% support by republicans. Whether true or not, trending will continue to look better for Trump if nothing serious changes -- from both parties and independents. Eight points. The first point is a little 'numbers crunching'. The rest point out choices Trump and Cruz made during the primary. Point 1: Ohio. True, Trump only came in second. But he he took on a wildly popular governor in his own...
  • Breaking: Did Trumps Big Win Just Evaporate As Texas Delegate Count Is Completed?

    TapWires ^ | 6/2/16 | Jake baker
    Finally, after a lot of searching and a lot of complicated charts that werent exactly correct it appears that the Texas Delegates ended up totaling 115 for Cruz and 40 for Trump. If my math is correct that means that Super Tuesday was essentially a tie with a difference between Cruz and Trump of only 14 delegates. So while Trump racked up a bunch of states Cruz racked up a bunch of delegates. Which strategy is smarter? For Cruz it seems that this worked out pretty well especially when the polls had Trump winning both Oklahoma and Alaska.Now that...

    Game over! This was a rout, America. Winning seven states and the vast majority of delegates is a landslide. Donald Trump and the millions of his supporters have changed American politics and the Republican Party for the foreseeable future. The nomination is within his grasp and if he does what he said he would do Tuesday night: "[I will] be a unifier!" he may be a very viable candidate against Hillary Clinton in the fall. After his victories Tuesday night in multiple states and his second place finish in others , Trump is in an unstoppable position. Whether the junior...

    When this election started in what seems like a lifetime ago, I was contacted by the Bush people. After all, I had been a supporter of Bush 43 and one of his appointees. I expressed my concern that I thought it was bad for the country to have another election between a Clinton and a Bush. The world has changed dramatically since then to say the least. We now are facing a presidential election between a congenital liar and an egomaniacal opportunist. The person who can stop that is Ted Cruz by getting out of the race now. A Ted...

    The Sun ^ | circa Feb 5, 2016 | Hanna Alberts
    Plans are underway to build a MILE-HIGH skyscraper in Japan. If approved the huge tower would be the tallest building in the world, dwarfing the current record-holder, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai which is half as tall at 2,717ft (828m). Located in Tokyo Bay, an inlet southeast of the city proper, the plan - dubbed Next Tokyo - wouldn't just be a single massive building, but if approved would emerge as a mini city designed to combat climate change. Envisioned as part of Tokyo's effort to protect itself from rising tides, Next Tokyo would feature a chain of man-made,...

    Corey Hawkins will star in the pilot for “24: Legacy” — the “24” revival series in the works at Fox — Variety has learned. The “Straight Outta Compton” alum has nabbed the leading role of Eric Carter in the pilot. As previously reported, the new “24” will not bring back Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer, so while Hawkins’ character is not a direct replacement, he will topline the potential series. (Sources tell Variety that while only a pilot has been ordered, “24: Legacy” is expected to land a 13-episode order.) Described as strong and smart, Eric came from a very rough...

    Late in September, we brought you "US Readies Battle Plans For Baltic War With Russia" in which we described a series of thought experiments undertaken by The Pentagon in an effort to determine what the likely outcome would be should something go horribly "wrong" on the way to landing the US in a shooting war with Russia in the Balkans. The results of those thought experiments were not encouraging.

    The Party for Socialism and Liberation, one of many communist groups in the U.S., argues that the long period of reaction that began in the late 1970s and greatly accelerated under Margaret Thatcher in Britain and Ronald Reagan in the United States is drawing to a close. Leaving aside the Marxist rhetoric about reaction, one has to say there may be some validity to what the communists are saying. After all, Bernie Sanders seems to be leading the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, Marxist Jeremy Corbyn has become head of the Labor Party in Britain, and the socialist New...

    DENVER (AP) Using marijuana in Colorado is legal. But the drug remains illegal federally and therefore is a disqualifier for obtaining a permit to carry a concealed firearm. The so-called "Colorado Campaign for Equal Gun Rights" wants to put a question on the November 2016 ballot asking voters to change state law to prevent sheriffs from denying permits due to marijuana use.

    The Obama administration is signaling its support for transgender people to serve openly in the military, in the barracks of their choice. Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James summarized the position, saying, "Times change." She told USA Today yesterday that the possibility of transgender service "is likely to come under review in the next year or so. James, who never served in the military, was appointed to a Defense Department position in the Clinton administration before being tapped to lead a branch of the service by Barack Obama. I don't believe this would be a positive step for military readiness...
