    President Trump appeared to be pleased with the Democratic National Committee chair results on Saturday, tweeting a sarcastic congratulations to the victor, Tom Perez, and the Republican Party. Congratulations to Thomas Perez, who has just been named Chairman of the DNC. I could not be happier for him, or for the Republican Party!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 25, 2017 In response, Perez, the former Obama labor secretary, told Trump to wipe the grin off his face. He, his deputy chair Keith Ellison, and all Democrats are now a united front, he argued. Call me Tom. And don't get too happy. @keithellison...

    Democrats Just Ensured More Success For Republicans The only people who are angered by the decision to make Tom Perez the next DNC chair are the Democrats. Republicans are actually very happy that he was selected for the position although they would have been just as happy with Keith Ellison because both candidates ensure the Republicans are going to gain even more ground over the next few years as both are terrible candidates. Democrats on the other hand are not so happy. The hashtag #DemExit was trending on Twitter shortly after news broke that Perez was the next DNC Chair...

    ATLANTA (CNN)--Progressive activists lashed out at the Democratic Party on Saturday after their choice to lead its national committee, Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, was defeated by former Obama administration Labor Secretary Tom Perez in a tight and unexpectedly contentious contest. After the results were announced, angry Ellison loyalists rose from their seats in the back of the ballroom at the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel and tried to shout down outgoing interim chair Donna Brazile, chanting, "Party for the people, not big money!" "This shows that the Democratic Party didn't learn their lesson," said Alexa Vaca, an Ellison backer and supporter...

    Perez beats Ellision 235-200 on 2nd ballot. I know the CW around here was for Ellison, but Perez is a better choice if you're a Republican because the fired up portion of the Dems were for Ellison. This will de-inflate them and they will become less engaged. The Lobbyists and Big Money won over grassroots today.

    U.S. Democrats elected former Labor Secretary Tom Perez as chairman on Saturday, choosing a veteran of the Obama administration to lead the daunting task of rebuilding the party and heading the opposition to Republican President Donald Trump. Members of the Democratic National Committee, the administrative and fundraising arm of the party, picked Perez on the second round of voting after one of the most crowded and competitive party leadership elections in decades.

    Today in Atlanta 447 members of the Democrat National Committee will meet to vote on the next Chairperson for the DNC. The two top candidates are Representative Keith Ellison and former Labor Secretary Tom Perez. The vote will determine which path the Democrat party will choose in the next several election cycles. Will they choose the direction of Black Live Matter Islamic Socialists, the coalition of Keith Ellison; or the more traditional Limo-Liberal Moonbat Communists of Tom Perez. The latest insider discussions put the race very close.

    Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison appears to be the odds on favorite to win Saturdays election to head the Democratic National Committee. That seems like good news for Republicans seeking to expand their congressional majority in 2018, a fact President Trump seemed to gleefully acknowledge this week. One thing I will say about Rep. Keith Ellison, in his fight to lead the DNC, is that he was the one who predicted early that I would win! Trump said in a Wednesday message on Twitter. Its no secret that incumbent presidents usually have a tough time in midterm elections. President Obama lost...

    As the race for the Democratic national chair comes down to the wire, filmmaker Michael Moore said Thursday the Democratic Party needs "fresh blood," new people like Minnesota congressman Keith Ellison. "The Democrats have a real chance to change things," Moore told CNN's Don Lemon on "CNN Tonight." "The old guard, God bless them, they've got to go. We need Keith Ellison as the DNC chair."

    Tomorrow the Democratic National Committee (DNC) will have to choose the direction of the Democratic Party, as well as its likely composition. It will be among the most important choices the DNC has ever had to make. There has been a powerful push from the hard-left of the Democratic Party, led by senator Bernie Sanders, to elect Keith Ellison chairman. If he is elected, I will quit the party after 60 years of loyal association and voting. I will become an independent, continuing to vote for the best candidates, most of whom, I assume, will still be Democrats. But I...

    This current impasse over the "Bathroom Law" provides North Carolina with a unique opportunity to be a leader not only in standing up to the radical leftist agenda and the bullying of the gay lobby, but also in advancing liberty Recently, the state of North Carolina has found itself squarely in the cross hairs of the radical gay lobby and its social justice warrior (SJW) allies in business. The reason is a new law, passed by wide margins in both houses of the legislature and signed by Governor McCrory, which prevents local governments from passing ordinances allowing, among other things,...

    Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Tuesday received the endorsement of MoveOn.org, a grassroots organization that has been at the forefront of liberal causes. MoveOn says the Vermont senator was supported by 78.6 percent of its membership in an online vote of more than 340,000 members. Hillary Clinton received 14.6 percent and Martin O'Malley received 0.9 percent with the remaining members urging no endorsement. "MoveOn members are feeling the Bern," said Ilya Sheyman, executive director of MoveOn.org Political Action

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Sunday made an appeal to supporters of Donald Trump to back his candidacy for president instead. The Vermont senator said he and Trump followers are mad about the same issues, but he - unlike Trump - has a plan to solve those problems. "Look, many of Trump's supporters are working-class people, and they're angry," Sanders said on CBS's "Face the Nation." "And they're angry because they're working longer hours for lower wages. They're angry because their jobs have left this country and gone to China or other low-wage countries."

    ORANGE, N.J. A teacher in New Jersey who assigned her third-grade class to write "get well" letters to a sick inmate convicted of killing a Philadelphia police officer was suspended Friday, the school superintendent said. Orange School Superintendent Ronald Lee said in a statement that school administrators "vehemently deny" any knowledge of Marilyn Zuniga's assignment. Preliminary inquiries found that Zuniga did not seek approval from administrators nor were parents notified, Lee said. The letters were delivered to Mumia Abu-Jamal in prison following his hospitalization last month for what his family said was treatment for complications from diabetes. The former...

    Senior aides to Barack Obama accompanied four Uighur prisoners as they were flown from Guantanamo Bay to the British colony of Bermuda, without the United Kingdom (UK) being informed, it was revealed yesterday, angering the UK. In an escalating diplomatic row over the transfer of the former terrorist suspects, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed the transfer with British Foreign Secretary David Miliband in what was said to be an uneasy conversation. Privately Whitehall officials accused America of treating Britain, with whom it is supposed to have a "special relationship," with barely disguised contempt. Remember, in February, in one...

    Not Wright for America ^ | 7/18/08 | Tim Brugger
    Barack Obama and his media comrades are engaged in an active effort to put his radical left-wing wife, "quintessential American" Michelle Obama, off-limits. That's what his effort to defend her yesterday was about. Republicans should not be intimidated by Obama and his media machine into not raising legitimate questions about Obama's beautiful but angry wife. It's simple. If we want to elect a Republican president, we must paint Barack Obama as the radical leftist he is. If Obama is even marginally acceptable to the American people, he will win, given the harsh political terrain Republicans face. A key part of...

    A response to a letter sent to HP investor relations: I apologize to your offense to the radio commercial airing on an Air America affiliate. It is not the view of HP to use mediums like TV or radio to support or disagree with any type of political agendas, and the overriding consideration in buying media is to reflect HP as a responsible and global corporate citizen of good standing. When purchasing media for use in communicating HP messages, we generally look for where are core target is and where we will garner the highest response rates. We do not...

    Editorial cartoonist Ted Rall recently made the news for penning yet another crass cartoon, this one denigrating Pat Tillman, the football star turned soldier recently killed in Afghanistan. Rall painted Tillman as a racist, bloodthirsty idiot who was just another cog in the "El Busho" war machine. MSNBC.com decided to pull the cartoon because it "did not meet MSNBC.com standards of fairness and taste." Blogger Andrew Sullivan called for a protest campaign against Rall and yesterday offered this enlightening Rall quote: "The word 'hero' has been bandied about a lot to refer to anyone killed in Afghanistan or Iraq....
