    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 27 May 2018 | John Semmens
    Democrats have yet to reach a consensus on what message might resonate most favorably with voters this Fall. Citing a poll finding that 60% of voters don't believe the Mueller probe has uncovered any crimes, Democratic strategist Jesse Ferguson suggested that "we need to focus our message on the successes of the investigation. Granted, there hasn't yet been any evidence of Russian collusion, but several people have been indicted for other crimes." Almost all of these "other crimes" involve lying to federal agents. The one seemingly significant crime not in this category is the charge that Paul Manafort engaged in...

  • Ex: Schneiderman called me his ‘brown slave,’ would slap me until I called him ‘Master’

    State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman called his Sri Lankan girlfriend his “brown slave” and wanted her to refer to him as “Master,” the woman says. Harvard-educated activist writer Tanya Selvaratnam told the New Yorker magazine that her yearlong affair with Schneiderman “was a fairytale that became a nightmare” — and quickly escalated into violence in the bedroom, even as he begged for threesomes. “Sometimes, he’d tell me to call him Master, and he’d slap me until I did,” Selvaratnam said. see also Ex-girlfriend says Schneiderman beat, choked her after night of drinking Ex-girlfriend says Schneiderman beat, choked her after night...

    "Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" are the rights singled out by Thomas Jefferson as those most deserving the protection of government as he and his fellow founders sought to recover the ‘rights of Englishmen’ of which they felt they were being deprived. This makes it more than ironic that those rights no longer exist in the country of England, where two very young children no longer have life, after their parents had their liberty taken away and were deprived of the happiness that preserving their children’s lives had brought. Everyone knows that resources are finite and demands can...

    Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. The D.C. council member’s visit to Washington’s Holocaust Museum was meant to be a “conciliatory” gesture to help repair relations after he sparked outrage for saying Jews control the weather. But Trayon White only compounded his problems when he defended Nazis during a guided tour of the museum Wednesday and then left early. D.C. Council member Trayon White White was at the museum viewing a 1935 photograph of a woman surrounded by Nazi soldiers with a sign hanging from her neck that read: “I am a German girl and allowed myself to be defiled by...

    The lives of American slaves had both "positives," and "negatives." List them. That's what one San Antonio charter school homework assignment said. It was sent home with eighth-graders on Wednesday. "My wife picks [our son] up from school and as soon as they pull out of the parking lot, he showed her the assignment and was pretty distraught by having to perform such a classroom assignment," concerned parent Robert Livar told KABB. "Naturally my wife was upset, sent me the photo that went viral." ~snip~ On Thursday, the San Antonio charter school, Great Hearts, Monte Vista campus, issued an apology...

    A wealthy Democratic donor club plotting the future of the liberal movement hopes to be fighting for reparations by 2022, according to a document obtained by the Washington Free Beacon from the Democracy Alliance's spring conference this week in Atlanta. The desire was stated in the invitation for a Monday reception during the annual spring gathering, which was attended by top Democratic Party officials such as DNC chairman Tom Perez, former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe, and Reps. Raul Grijalva (Ariz.) and Mark Pocan (Wis.). The reception, "Way to Win: 2022 Victory Party," was presented as a look forward at what's...

    "Erdoğan has cynically referred to these students as 'terrorists,' vowed to expel them from Boğaziçi University, and to deny them the right to study at any other university. We have heard this kind of verbal attack from Erdoğan before and it was followed by the detention of thousands of academics, journalists, artists, and human rights advocates." Ankara does nothing to prevent ISIS from selling Yazidi women and children in Turkey; allows unspecified numbers of people to use Turkish territory as a point of entrance into Syria and Iraq to join ISIS or other jihadist groups; hosts and aids Hamas,...

    Wes Johnson was about 18 years old when he was murdered in a cotton field in southern Alabama. It was 1937, and according to newspaper reports at the time, a mob of men had dragged him from his jail cell before he could stand trial for the charge against him: assaulting a white woman. Today, only one photograph is known to exist of Johnson, a single picture to preserve his image for posterity—his lifeless body hanging from a tree. Bryan Stevenson wants to honor the legacy of Johnson, and thousands like him, with a new memorial for victims of lynching...

    How radical can the Democrats get if they take over the government again? What used to be an extreme position - reparations to black people for slavery - is now entering the mainstream of Democratic party thought and could become a reality once the Democrats regain power. Reparations have been mentioned since the end of slavery, but in recent years, it has been elevated to a serious issue by liberal Democrats. Rep. Maxine "Mad Max" Waters, appears to want to make it a cornerstone of a run for the presidency in 2020. WATERS: “He’s a bully — he has...
