    Well, Clinton sure did lay out todays theme for the globalists side. Today, that side is apocalyptic! Wow, I mean, they REALLY are apocalyptic! They’re about to overplay it. Shumer just stepped in it too. They protest too much. You don’t have to trust Putin at all to clearly see that YUUGE nerve sticking out. Many on ‘our side’ are hand wringing, as usual too.

    NBA legend Oscar Robertson has one question as he looks out at the recent collision of politics and sports: “Where are the white players?” Robertson, “The Big O,” was honored with the league’s lifetime achievement award at the NBA Awards banquet Monday night in California. During his remarks on stage, he spoke about the need to “be persistent, or as I’ve been called, stubborn. Stubborn about what you believe in.”

    Today, President Trump signed an Executive Order that will keep migrant families together during detention on the U.S.-Mexico border. The left and the News Misleadia (one and the same, I know) have been fiercely and turbulently condemning President Trump, likening him to Hitler and Mussolini, because he inherited policy and law of previous administrations and had children separated from criminal families at the border. The uproar and furor, continuing for days on end, have triggered some people -- celebrities and common people alike -- to threaten to assassinate him or his children. Today, with the Executive Order Trump signed, the...

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Mike Parson was sworn in as the 57th Governor of Missouri Friday afternoon, ending the tumultuous term of Eric Greitens, who resigned amid accusations of campaign impropriety and sexual misconduct involving a mistress. The oath was administered at 5:30 p.m. by Judge Mary Rhodes Russell in a private ceremony due to time constraints. Parson said he'll hold a public swearing-in at a later date. Parson, 62, was born and raised in Wheatland, Missouri and is a third-generation farmer. He spent six years in the US Army, serving two tours with the Military Police Corps, before returning...

    Joy Ann Reid‘s old, supposedly hacked blog that was first reported on by Mediaite is apparently the gift that keeps on giving, as BuzzFeed News dug-up an old post today in which the MSNBC host likened Senator John McCain to a mass shooter. The October 2007 post, which was published on the now-defunct Reid Report, is titled “Baghdad John Strikes Again” and features a picture of Virginia Tech shooter Seung-Hui Cho but with the head of McCain squarely edited on top of his. “Republican presidential candidate John McCain told workers of small weapons factory that he not only wants to...

    Attorneys for the teenager accused of running over and killing Baltimore County police Officer Amy S. Caprio called for the public release of body camera footage from the incident, saying their client was in “survival mode” when he ran over the officer. J. Wyndal Gordon and Warren Brown, two prominent Baltimore defense attorneys who are representing 16-year-old Dawnta Harris, said Thursday morning that the footage will help answer questions surrounding Caprio’s death, and ultimately help their client’s case. They called on Baltimore County State’s Attorney Scott D. Shellenberger to release the video. “I think it will put a lot of...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo handed Hillary Clinton, the Democratic 2016 presidential nominee, a bouquet of flowers on a stage at his party’s convention on Long Island on Wednesday afternoon. At the same time in Manhattan, Cuomo’s Republican gubernatorial rival was doing all he could to separate himself from his own party’s 2016 presidential nominee, Donald Trump. Marc Molinaro, the Dutchess County executive, officially earned his nomination at the state convention where the New York Republican Party unanimously approved him as its designee to take on Cuomo in November. Drawing a stark contrast from the wealthy president known for his inflammatory rhetoric,...

    On Monday, the NFL announced a new national anthem policy that allows players to stay in the locker room but leaves open the possibility of fines for players who choose not to stand during the anthem. Former Patriots defensive end Chris Long said the new rules reflect the owners’ fear of their bottom line, as well as President Donald Trump, not concerns about patriotism. “Don’t get it confused,” Long wrote on Twitter. “These owners don’t love America more than the players demonstrating and taking real action to improve it.”

    Alabama last elected a Democrat as governor 20 years ago. Former Gov. Robert Bentley received nearly twice the votes as Democrat Parker Griffith in the most recent gubernatorial contest four years ago. The Cook Political Report labels Alabama's governor's race as "solid Republican." The same label comes from the Larry J. Sabato's Crystal Ball, produced at the University of Virginia Center for Politics. "Barring some major developments in this race, it's difficult to see a path for a Democrat to win," said Geoffrey Skelley, associate editor with the Crystal Ball. Said Waymon Burke, a political science professor at Calhoun Community...

    Who would have thought just a couple of years ago that Prince Harry would marry a minor actress from the U.S. television series Suits? Yet I hear the Royal Wedding could be just the start of an even bigger Anglo-American drama. Meghan Markle is said to have told a former close associate that her ultimate ambition is to be president of the U.S. The conversation apparently took place after Meghan began her romance with Prince Harry.

    A lawsuit filed last week calls for the desegregation of New Jersey schools, a potentially game-changing legal challenge for minority students across the state. But how segregated are the state's schools? Just 0.3 percent of the more than 6,700 students in Irvington Public Schools are white, making it the most non-white school district in the state, according to data from the nonprofit Center on Diversity and Equality in Education And that's far from the only example of students of color being isolated. About 66 percent of New Jersey's African American students and 62 percent of its Latino students attend schools...

    A US bishop stole the show with his fiery address at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding. The Most Reverend Michael Curry has been praised for his passionate speech which touched upon slavery, the Old Testament and even quoted Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Many of social media were delighted to see the American reverend 'shake up' the traditional royal proceedings. The preacher also provoked a few chuckles in the chapel - and even Harry and Meghan couldn't help but giggle at one point.

    Reactions from Capitol Hill are pouring in after reports that at least eight people were killed in a shooting at a Texas high school early Friday — with President Trump adding "early reports not looking good." A suspected shooter was taken into custody after allegedly opening fire inside a first-period art class at Santa Fe High School, located about 30 miles southeast of Houston, KRIV-TV reports. Trump addressed the school shooting shortly after news broke that there were multiple casualties. "We grieve for the terrible loss of life and send our support and love to everyone affected by this absolutely...

    John McCain’s fade in recent polls, combined with a barrage of negative news coverage during the financial crisis, has leading Republican activists around the country worrying about his prospects and urging his campaign to become much more aggressive against Barack Obama in the remaining month before Election Day. A flurry of new polls shows Barack Obama gaining in several battleground states – most notably Florida, Pennsylvania and swing states throughout the West. Officials worry early voting, which is under way in important states such as Ohio, is likely to favor Obama in this toxic political climate.

If that wasn’t enough, MSNBC contributor John Heilemann hailed White House reporters for doing “valiant work” in press briefings exposing the White House’s lies and Wallace’s fellow McCain/Palin campaign aide Steve Schmidt ruled that Sanders is worse than Baghdad Bob.

    John McCain is at odds with many of his top advisers over launching a renewed attack on Barack Obama's ties to his long-time pastor and mentor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, according to campaign sources. Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and several top campaign officials see a sharp attack on Wright as the best — and perhaps last — chance to rattle Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill. ) and force voters to rethink their support of him. But McCain continues to overrule them, fearing a Wright attack would smack of desperation and racism, the officials said.

    Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz — a Democratic candidate for governor and a fixture in state and local politics for nearly a quarter-century — died Thursday morning of cardiac arrest, officials said. Kamenetz, 60, was awakened by chest pains around 2 a.m. Thursday, county officials said. Kamenetz and his wife, Jill, drove less than two miles from their Owings Mills home to the Chestnut Ridge Volunteer Fire Company where the county executive called 911 from the parking lot. Chestnut Ridge medical personnel escorted Kamenetz and his wife into the station. As Kamenetz was explaining his symptoms, he lost consciousness. Fire...
