  • Ocasio-Cortez Suggests Ditching Columbus Day For Election Day Holiday

    Huffington Post ^ | November 19, 2018 | Andy McDonald
    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the incoming U.S. representative from New York City, has an idea that could make voting easier: Take Columbus Day off the federal holiday list and replace it with Election Day. In a tweet Saturday, the progressive Democrat wondered why Columbus Day is a federal holiday while Election Day, when we engage in perhaps our most important civic duty, is not. Columbus Day, after all, celebrates a man who never actually set foot in what is now the United States and who certainly did not “discover” America. Daily Mail editor David Martosko tried to make a joke about Ocasio-Cortez...

    The will-she-or-won’t-she brouhaha of Ford showing up will hang over the hearings like Damocles Sword. When Democrats have complete media attention, THE. SHOW.MUST.GO.ON! 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.

    EXCERPT: BRUCE (voice-over): "Despite the President questioning the timing of these allegations, Blasey Ford’s sister-in-law says coming forward at all is not easy." PETERS: "Part of what I understand is that she felt sort of emotionally derailed for a couple of years. I’m sure she’s preparing mentally to embrace her truth and kind of get past the things that have made her feel like she has to hide it and be silent."

    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."

    June 29 marked the end of the Third Review Conference (RevCon) of the United Nations’ Programme of Action (PoA) on Small Arms and Light Weapons. Delegates at the conference, including representatives of the United States, worked on producing updates to the global gun-control agreement. According to the text of the latest draft of the agreement, the PoA will serve as an “international instrument to enable states to identify and trace, in a timely and reliable manner” the small arms and light weapons that are the target of the scheme. In practice, this means that the governments of member nations (including...

    Left-wing activist Tom Steyer is blasting House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and top Democrats for not supporting impeachment, claiming that Democrats are complicit in “normalizing” President Donald Trump. He even compared his impeachment movement to the 1960s civil rights movement. “The Founders gave us impeachment to answer a reckless, lawless, and dangerous president and every day that his behavior is accepted, every day that you don’t oppose it, it becomes enshrined as the way things are done. You have normalized this presidency, you have normalized his behavior,” Steyer said in a Tuesday Politico interview. “And then at the end...

    Maryland Democrat also calls for national single-payer health care systemSenate hopeful Chelsea Manning said she’ll work to abolish federal immigrations and customs agencies if successful in her bid to unseat U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin, Maryland Democrat. Ms. Manning, the former Army intelligence analyst convicted of leaking classified documents to the WikiLeaks website, listed eliminating both the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) as top priorities on her platform unveiled Thursday. “We believe the solution to the so called ‘immigration’ issue, which amounts to nothing more than justification for ethnic cleansing in America, is not...

That Roseanne the woman is herself a Trump supporter only advances the notion that the show is a populist win, and many critics and viewers have offered the MAGA factor as the sole variable explaining the program’s popularity. “Look at her ratings!” cried the gleeful president himself after the show’s debut.</p>

It was little more than expensive theater. The FBI had plenty of evidence but it simply chose not to follow up. And billboards are expensive to rent, especially in and around Las Vegas. A costly ruse. ... This series ‘Fear and Lying in Las Vegas’ is mostly about what the FBI didn’t do, who and what it...

    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...
