    Rep. Maxine Waters continued her war of words with President Trump Saturday in Oakland, with the Los Angeles Democrat saying Trump was “embarrassing us every day” during his trip through Europe. “He’s over there supposedly meeting on NATO. He doesn’t know a darn thing about it,” Waters, a Los Angeles Democrat told a meeting of the California Democratic Party’s women’s caucus. “He doesn’t even understand what GDP is. As a matter of fact, he doesn’t even know how to spell his own wife’s name.” (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Waters has been critcized by Trump and by some of her fellow Democrats, including House...

    He admitted it must seem far-fetched. In fact, John Phillips kiddingly said he may need to “blow into a breathalyzer, take a drug test and get psychologically evaluated.” But the CNN commentator attempted to make a serious argument that “radical congresswoman” Maxine Waters could be the Democratic nominee for president in 2020, in an opinion piece published Wednesday in the Orange County Register and L.A. Daily News....

    California Congresswoman Maxine Waters could become the Democratic nominee for president in 2020. Let me repeat that, so it can sink in: Maxine Waters could be the Democratic nominee for president in 2020. Ok, let me blow into a breathalyzer, take a drug test and get psychologically evaluated before I say it a third time: Maxine Waters could be the Democratic nominee for president in 2020. How is it possible that a radical congresswoman, who was just called “un-American” by the leadership of her own party for encouraging viral confrontations with Trump administration officials, could win the presidential nomination of...

    American politics is a wonder for the world to behold. Our free speech traditions produce all kinds of interesting folderol, over the top in its theatrics and yet usually deeply meaningful to those participating in it. It was on display Monday, in front of the United States Supreme Court building, appearing seemingly by magic moments after President Donald Trump announced he’d chosen D.C. Appellate Judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace retiring Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy. The right was there. And the left, each itching to get their point across. They had signs, including some urging opposition to nominees not picked, pre-printed...

    The interweaving of political/social references and luxe streetwear designs has become the touchstone of Mexican-American designer Willy Chavarria's fashion shows. For his Fall/Winter 2018 show in February, black and brown models walked down the runway with pained expressions and tears on their faces, possibly symbolizing the effect of police brutality, violence, and other tragedies plaguing minorities. This season, Willy Chavarria debuted his new soccer-inspired collaboration with sportswear brand Hummel. The political references were still there, including a sweatshirt with the word "American" flipped upside down, another sweatshirt flipped the American flag, and then there was Maxine Waters. No, not in...

    Is it about time that Congresswoman Maxine Waters be required to attend Anger Management Classes. Anger is a very normal natural reaction to situations that may cause disappointment, hurt, frustration, sadness, confusion, shame or other negative emotions. Yet, for many people anger is an extremely uncomfortable and confusing emotion. Uncontrolled anger can make you feel as though you're at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion. What are your thoughts? Should Maxine be required to attend Anger Management Classes ?

    A series of recent events has inspired some soul searching on the part of democrats who still have a brain. Among them, the call to abolish ICE Sen. Elizabeth Warren: The Massachusetts senator and liberal fixture said Saturday at a rally in Boston: "We need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom by starting with replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality." Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.: Like Warren, she is a potential 2020 contender. Gillibrand decried ICE as a "deportation force" -- a reference to child separation at the border that Trump officials have criticizedas being inaccurately pinned on ICE. She told...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) slammed President Trump over his comments about Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) during a rally on Thursday night. Trump at the campaign-style rally in Montana called Waters a “low-IQ individual,” a claim that he has repeated many times. He speculated her IQ is “somewhere in the mid-60s.” The average IQ is 85-114, and a mid-60s IQ indicates mental challenges....

Maxine Waters from “unwarranted attacks from the Trump administration and others in the GOP.” “We write to share our profound indignation and deep disappointment over your recent failure to protect Congresswoman Waters from unwarranted attacks from the Trump Administration and others in the GOP,” the group of nearly 200 women wrote in a letter sent Tuesday. “That failure was further compounded by your decision to unfairly deride her as being ‘uncivil’ and...

    The head of a conservative watchdog group said Thursday that Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters is inciting "mob violence" with her call for protesters to confront Trump officials in public, as he urged a formal ethics investigation on Capitol Hill. "When you’re out there ... inciting mob violence against sitting Trump Cabinet members, that doesn’t obviously reflect credibly on the House," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told "Fox & Friends." "And the House has to decide whether they’re going to allow its members to use the House as a platform and its power and position to attack and incite violence." Judicial...

    Maxine Waters isn’t about to let Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer hold her back from calling for members of the Trump administration to be harassed in public. During an appearance on MSNBC on Sunday, Waters listened to a clip of Schumer denouncing her rhetoric as “un-American,” and was asked if she was “surprised” that Democratic leaders called her out. “Well, I’m surprised that Chuck Schumer, you know, reached into the other house (of Congress) to do that. I’ve not quite seen that done before, but one of the things I recognize, being an elected official, is in the final analysis,...

    Recall not long ago or far away, when President Barak Obama was in office and the prevailing view on the left was not only that any substantive criticism of his policies was racist, but that it was tantamount to sedition. Recall in 2010, when the conservative Tea Party held a big rally in Washington and made a lot of noise, including allegedly yelling some racial slurs at some congressmen (an allegation that was never documented, even with smartphones everywhere) but didn’t attack or harass anyone physically and even cleaned up after themselves. That was labeled overt sedition, incitement to violence...

    LOS ANGELES – A coalition of religious leaders and black pastors in Los Angeles will hold a press conference at 3 p.m. on Monday, July 2, 2018 in front of the office of Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), located at 10124 South Broadway in Los Angeles. The coalition (Pastors in Soladarity) is being organized by Pastor Shane B. Scott, who is a senior pastor at the Macedonia Baptist Church. At the press conference, the pastors will show support for Congresswoman Waters, who has received criticism from the White House as well as death threats for her call to publically confront White...

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) on Saturday told demonstrators in Los Angeles protesting the Trump administration’s immigration policies that anyone who shoots at the lawmaker “better shoot straight.” Waters claimed on Thursday she was forced to pull out of events in Alabama and Texas after she received death threats. “There was one very serious death threat made against me on Monday from an individual in Texas, which is why my planned speaking engagements in Texas and Alabama were cancelled (sic) this weekend,” the outspoken Trump critic said in a statement. “This is just one in several very serious threats the United...

    The left-leaning commentariat didn't hesitate to backstop the restaurant owner who asked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave her establishment on Friday. The issue is democracy, not civility, New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg wrote. Civility has only marginal value in the current political moment, Tom Scocca argued in The Washington Post. When Trump supporters say they care about civility, they don't really mean it, Vox's Matt Yglesias suggested. Liberals are in fighting trim, and they're spoiling for a showdown with the president's minions. But that's a bad strategy. Abandoning civility and escalating the outrage cycle --...

    After U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., implored Americans of good conscience to publicly confront White House officials over their policies, leading Democrats joined with Republicans to denounce Waters’ comments as uncivil. It was one of the few acts of bipartisanship that Democrats have engaged in since the advent of the Trump administration, and it was by far the most harmful. Not only because Waters, who lived through the civil rights movement, understands that oppressors do not buckle to civility. It was harmful because Waters’ fellow Democrats — including leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer — wrongly believe that tyranny can...

DuVernay jumped to Twitter to call Trump a “mistake of history.” “You have no sense of self outside of the disparagement of others,” DuVernay tweeted. “You project your weakness onto others. You are of no substance. You will go down in history as a mistake. A mistake that unified many, reminding us of the best in ourselves by being a violent example of the worst.”(continued)
