    Democrats in Washington state, like their counterparts in the other Washington, don’t always think the law applies to them. They can create elaborate procedures to trip up Republicans in, say, election law. But those requirements are quite optional where they are concerned.Part of this is they see themselves as the good guys, fighting for right – no matter how many jobs are lost, how much damage is done to the economy or how little the measure does to help the environment. If they have to bend a few rules to make it happen – hey, it was the right thing...

The same students who are encouraged to be dedicated Christian scholars are also given the opportunity to work with the local abortion clinic. "They are not equipping their graduates to be Christians and follow Christ," Katie Lodjic of Students for Life of America tells One News Now.

    The racial victimhood racket has taken off. Marcus Owens, a black 19-year-old University of Iowa student, posted a picture of his bruised face and chipped tooth, claiming he was violently attacked by a group of whites for no reason. The story went viral. Predictably, black students protested, demanding justice and an end to racism. They called out the University of Iowa (even though the incident occurred off campus). Law enforcement launched a major investigation. The media descended on Iowa City to get to the bottom of this awful hate crime. Everything unraveled when surveillance video of the altercation revealed the...

    The former president was speaking on behalf of his wife, Hillary Clinton, at a campaign event.Bill Clinton slammed the "awful legacy of the last eight years" on Monday, which Republicans quickly claimed was an attack on President Barack Obama.

    Corruption: Though she tries to ignore it, Hillary Clinton cant escape her email problem. Almost every day brings more trouble for her. Its time she did what a decent person would do temporarily shelve her presidential campaign. While Clinton leads Sen. Bernie Sanders in the delegate count, the former secretary of state is far behind everyone on the ethical score. She is consistently battered by news that reminds voters just how corrupt she is and now is facing a report that the FBI director is convinced she broke the law.

    Bill Clinton is either losing it, or he’s ramping up his attacks on President Obama. Neither is good news for Hillary Clinton. During a speech in Spokane, Washington on Monday, Clinton seemed to tear down Obama to boost his wife. “Literally from the time I met her till we talked yesterday, she is the best change maker I have ever known. “She always finds a way to make something good happen, to make people feel empowered, to buy people into the process, to make democracy work the way the framer intended for it to work,” Clinton said. “Now, if you...

    Beset by scandals on both the national and statewide level, Democrats find themselves in danger of historic losses in the 2014 midterms, as in addition to the "angry white males" they find themselves facing a new threat, that of the "angry young black male." A growing trend of young black makes defecting to the GOP has caused fears among Democratic Party officials who have largely ignored the concerns of a constituency that has been loyal for decades. It is ironic that with the election of the first African-American President, the party that garners roughly 90% of the black vote finds...

This is my country,” Goldberg said. “My mother, my grandmother, my great-grand folks, we busted ass to be here. I’m sorry. I’m an American. I’m not an African-American, I’m not a chick American, I’m an American!”

    <p>1. The 2016 Presidential Election. So... we're just gonna act like that thing on his head is hair? Aside from the fact that he's shown himself to be a sexist bigot, if Donald Trump isn't even perceptive enough to notice a seagull nesting on his head then how the hell can he run a country? Only the most racist and player-hatery of my White homies could possibly be pro-Trump. And if that's what you're about, then that's your business. But don't ruin the Presidential Elections for the rest of us this month. Keep it to yourself until March. Let us enjoy our last Black History Month with a Black president in peace.</p>

It's being taken very seriously," according to his legislative spokesman, who said he couldn't comment further.

    Rachel Dolezal has finally admitted that she’s white. The disgraced former president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP acknowledged her racial background during an intense interview on Fox’s “The Real” on Monday. “I acknowledge that I was biologically born white to white parents, but I identify as black,” Dolezal said at the conclusion of an intense round of questioning from the show’s all-minority, all-female panel. The 37-year-old civil rights activist made national headlines in June when it was revealed that she had falsely claimed to be black for years. Dolezal’s white parents, who live in Montana, told reporters at...

    Shirley Sherrod sued Andrew Breitbart, Larry OConnor and others over a video of Sherrod giving a speech before an NAACP group, in which she recounted how in the distant past when she worked for a state agency, she had discriminated against a white farmer. Breitbarts widow was substituted as a defendant after his death. Sherrod was fired by the US Dept. of Agriculture as a result of their (over)reaction, and despite her clarifications and denials, indicating she had given some help to the farmer, and had learned from the experience to treat people fairly. We have analyzed that original tape,...
