    President Donald Trump has done “irreparable” damage to the United States and is “impeachable,” regardless of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, a House Democrat said Thursday. Texas Representative Al Green, who has forced two failed votes to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump, renewed his call in an interview with Hill.TV. "What he has done to this society is harmful and in some cases it may be irreparable,” Green said on the media outlet’s Rising show. He gave the example of Trump telling “police officers that you don’t have to be nice, when you’re arresting someone.” "These are the kinds of...

    DONALD TRUMP will be left without his secret campaign weapon in the 2020 presidential election, as Facebook has announced it will not offer the same support to US President as it did in 2016. The tech-giant declared its change in policy claiming that it will focus on providing support and information to all politicians and campaigns on its website politics.fb.com rather than visiting campaign headquarters. The company’s decision comes after more than a year of controversy over its role in the Trump campaign, with many alleging Facebook gave the American firebrand preferential treatment. In an interview with CBS News' 60...

    Donald Trump questioned his Christianity, insulted his wife's appearance, suggested his father was involved with President John F. Kennedy's assassination and nicknamed him Lyin' Ted. Ted Cruz called Trump a "sniveling coward," a "pathological liar" and "utterly amoral." It's all water under the bridge now, as Cruz fights to hold his Senate seat in deep-red Texas and the President struggles to keep a Republican majority in the Senate. Trump has volunteered himself, as well as two of his most high-profile surrogates -- his children, Don Jr. and Ivanka -- to appear alongside the Texas senator as his re-election race tightens....

    A House Democrat called on his colleagues Wednesday to "rise up" if Republican senators push forward with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation without hearing from his sexual assault accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. "For the men and women of the House of Representatives, we must rise up in disgust and anger and make certain that our voice is clear," Rep. John Garamendi, D-Calif., said during an interview with CNN. "Get the facts out. Give this woman the benefit of the doubt. Don't treat her as so many women have been treated time after time in courtroom after courtroom." Only the...

    President Donald Trump will visit Springfield on Friday for a Make America Great Again Rally, his second stop in Springfield in the past year. Trump's 2020 re-election campaign is holding the rally at JQH Arena, 685 S. John Q. Hammons Parkway. Doors open at 4 p.m., and the event begins at 6:30 p.m. People interested in attending can register at donaldjtrump.com. The event comes after Trump, citing Hurricane Florence, canceled a re-election rally in Cape Girardeau scheduled for last Thursday. Friday will mark the third public event Trump has held in Missouri. He went to Springfield and St. Charles last...

    Brett Kavanaugh stands accused of sexually assaulting a high school classmate. And Feinstein seems to have concluded that the public didn’t need to know this. First of all, what in blazes was Dianne Feinstein thinking? It was late July when she got that letter from a female constituent alleging that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school. And only this week did she bother to share it with her Democratic Judiciary Committee colleagues? And not only that. According to Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer’s explosive New Yorker piece posted Friday morning, those colleagues got wind of...

    The arguments for doing the converse are getting a little silly. If you’re a long-time Republican voter, you’ve likely by now heard the growing and insistent and highly concerned media refrain: Republicans who truly care about America will vote for Democrats this fall. In RealClearPolitics last month, columnist Froma Harrop addressed the woes of Republicans in the age of Trump, offering her take on the only honorable options for this fall: “You can follow the lead of GOP strategist Steve Schmidt, conservative columnist George Will and others who have fled the party. Or you can stay in and help a...

    Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman has said that Hillary Clinton was “robbed” in the 2016 presidential election, describing herself as a “co-conspirator” in what happened. In an interview with The View on Monday, the ex-Apprentice contestant spoke about her time in the White House and the recordings she made of President Donald Trump while she worked with him. “You know, Hillary Clinton was robbed,” Manigault Newman told The View’s panel, hosted by Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Abby Huntsman. “And I was…a co-conspirator in that robbery.” Speaking about Clinton, Manigault played a recording she said was...

    Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., escalated her ongoing feud with President Donald Trump, calling him “the most deplorable, the most despicable human being” and advocating his impeachment. Waters received a hero’s welcome, including two standing ovations, at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation conference Thursday in Washington. Introduced as a leader of the “resistance,” Waters spoke for more than 30 minutes about the Trump administration’s policies related to criminal justice. After finishing her prepared remarks, she made her most pointed comments about the president. “This is a bad time—to put it mildly. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life,”...

    The Senate Judiciary Committee completed four days of hearings on the Supreme Court nomination of D.C. Judge Brett Kavanaugh and a vote reportedly will come in about two weeks. The hearings were marred with protests and demonstrations against Kavanaugh as more than 227 demonstrators were arrested between the Sept. 4 start of the proceedings and the end of testimony Friday, according to Capitol authorities. On Day 2, California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris grilled Kavanaugh on whether he had discussed special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election with anyone at the law firm of Kasowitz Benson...

    One month ago, Michael Avenatti—the Stormy Daniels lawyer, Donald Trump antagonist, and yes, potential 2020 presidential candidate—spoke at an Iowa Democratic Party fundraiser and declared to a cheering crowd that there was “no greater question facing our party and our nation” than “how” Democrats fight. He chastised Democrats for having “a tendency to bring nail clippers to a gun fight” when they should be fighting “fire with fire.” Avenatti is the lead storm chaser in a little-noticed front in the 2020 Democratic presidential campaign: Who can out-Trump the sitting president by going the furthest to break procedural “norms”? Even if...

    Rolling Stone ^ | September 14, 2018 | David S. Cohen
    Are you rooting hard for President Trump to be impeached and removed from office? Or, as the anonymous New York Times op-ed last week discussed, hoping there will be an invocation of the (completely unrealistic) 25th Amendment? Or better yet, for him to hang his head in shame and resign? If so, you’re certainly not alone, as every passing day there is new reason to doubt Trump’s competence and evidence linking him to criminal behavior is piling up. But there’s a huge risk: If Trump vacates the office, we could face almost 10 years of President Mike Pence. Is that...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren may be one of President Donald Trump's most vocal critics. But she does not want to boot him out of office, yet. Ahead of November's critical midterm elections, billionaire former hedge fund manager Tom Steyer has piled more than $20 million into his campaign to impeach the president. Asked Thursday evening if she agreed with the mega-donor's effort, Warren answered, "Nope." The Massachusetts Democrat said she wanted to see special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation come to a close before she draws a conclusion. The former FBI director is looking into Russian efforts to influence the 2016...

    Former President Jimmy Carter isn’t holding back in his assessment of Donald Trump, saying this week that if he could somehow become president again he would reverse all the policies Trump has put in place since taking office. Carter made the remark at Emory University, where he speaks each year to incoming students. The 93-year-old former president said he prays for Donald Trump regularly, though it didn’t appear to be working as Trump would “have to change a lot of things” if his prayers were answered. If he had the chance, Carter said he would make the changes himself. “If...

    Chelsea Clinton said that it would be "un-Christian" to roll back abortion protections granted by the U.S. Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade. “When I think about all of the statistics, that are painful, of what women are confronting today in our country, and what even more women confronted pre- Roe, and how many women died, and how many more women were maimed because of unsafe abortion practices, we just can’t go back to that," Clinton said during a SiriusXM Progress Town Hall clip uploaded Thursday. "That’s unconscionable to me. And also, I’m sure that this will unleash another wave...

    Nevada Republican U.S. Sen. Dean Heller said Wednesday he's willing to bet $100 that the Senate will confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by the end of the month. But if there's any delay, he's confident the nominee will be confirmed before November's midterm elections. Heller made the comments on "Nevada Newsmakers ," and is in a tough re-election battle this year and is the only Republican senator running for another term in a state that Democrat Hillary Clinton won in 2016. The senator has portrayed himself to conservatives as the only thing standing in the way of Democrats taking...

    Noticeably absent from [Bush’s] list is Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a Republican who is facing a surprisingly robust challenge from Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso. Cruz once worked for the former commander in chief, both on Bush’s presidential campaign and then in his administration. The senator also met his wife, Heidi, while working for Bush’s campaign, leading him to say that he “will always be grateful” to the former president…

    If the House flips, Representative Jerry Nadler would head the committee that could try to oust the president. But he’ll have to be convinced first. BROOKLYN—“Right now, I don’t want to talk about it,” Jerry Nadler told his curious, concerned constituent. “We don’t want to talk about it.” The man positioned to lead the House of Representatives’ impeachment effort against President Donald Trump next year was holding court on a suffocating early August afternoon outside a Walgreens in the Brooklyn half of his New York City congressional district. This was a “Congress on Your Corner” event, and the 71-year-old Nadler—dressed...
  • Asian Americans for the 2018 Midterm Elections

    09/12/2018 1:36:32 AM PDT · by Doreener · 3 replies
    Chinese Americans are the wealthiest and best-educated Americans. They should learn to choose candidates who truly represent their self-interest. Republican politicians who support fair competition in the markets and in the schools best represent Asian American Republicans. They believe in rejecting anyone who supports the use of race rather than merit to pick winners, losers and even Harvard students. In the 1992 presidential election, 55 percent of Asian Americans voted Republican. For the 2018 midterm elections, Nevada, Southern California, New Jersey and Virginia could be important battlegrounds in congressional races for Asian-American GOP votes, according to Karthick Ramakrishnan, a public...

    Former President Jimmy Carter is cautioning Democrats that their path to defeating President Donald Trump depends on independents and moderates. Speaking at his presidential center in Atlanta on Tuesday, Carter said U.S. policies on immigration, the environment and human rights will not improve while Trump is in office. Carter also noted polls showing independents souring on the Republican administration....
