    Establishment media outlets including MSNBC, CNN, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times killed five stories this week.

    California Rep. Maxine Waters is not a member of any of the Congressional committees investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government. She also has no particular insight into Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian meddling. But that didn’t stop the Democratic lawmaker from offering up a “guarantee” on Thursday that Trump colluded with the Kremlin during last year’s presidential campaign. “Here you have a president who I can tell you and guarantee you is in collusion with the Russians to undermine our democracy,” Waters boldly told an audience at an event for the Congressional Black Caucus...

    "Here you have a president who I can tell you and guarantee you is in collusion with the Russians to undermine our democracy. Here you have a president that has obstructed justice. And here you have a president that lies every day," Waters said. The ranking Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee also said she plans to grill Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson when he comes before her committee in the coming weeks. . . "Look at Ben Carson. My God. My grandmother would call him an educated fool," Waters said.

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said Friday that the GOP, Democratic Party and the first lady "can't trust" President Trump, during a month when the president is increasingly crossing party lines to work with Democrats on key legislation. "Democrats can't trust Trump, Republicans can't trust Trump, and Melania can't trust Trump," Waters said in a tweet. (TWEET-AT-LINK) Trump met this week with Democratic congressional leaders Charles Schumer (N.Y.) and Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) for dinner at the White House where they discussed possible protections for participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and border security actions. The president later objected...

    Arguably, the only thing better than Maxine Waters’ skewering of White House weasel and Treasury Department Secretary Steve Mnuchin was the song it inspired—a gospel spin on Waters’ infamous remarks, performed by Broadway actor Mykal Kilgore that immediately went viral. It turns out that New York City’s first lady, Chirlane McCray, is also a fan of the song and its message. This past Sunday, which was World Suicide Prevention Day, McCray used the concept of “reclaiming my time” to urge viewers to take better care of their mental health. (TWEET-AT-LINK) In the public service announcement, McCray appeared opposite Kilgore, who’s...

    At the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Terrorism and Illicit Finance hearing on Wednesday, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said there are voices on the internet, specifically on Breitbart and YouTube, that want to kill her. "I think we should focus a lot on domestic terrorism also. So I would like to ask again, given all that you have said about how difficult it is and the privacy concerns, do you have any thoughts about what we can do to begin to deal with the KKK, the white nationalists, the - the extremists, the Alt-Right?" Waters asked. "They're on the internet,...

Maxine Waters (D-CA) said after President Donald Trump was they impeached, they would “go after” Vice President Mike Pence next. Waters said, “Who is Donald Trump? Who does he think he is? Why does he think he is going to get away with what he is doing? There are those who may be afraid of him but as the young folks say, I ain’t scared, not one bit, not one bit and neither should you be.” She continued, “Then...

    Is Duterte running for US Congress? He is, but it’s not that Duterte. Republican Filipino-American Edwin Duterte has joined the race for California’s 43rd Congressional District in next year’s US midterm election. While the Philippine president, who shares his last name with Edwin, is widely popular in the Philippines, it will be an uphill climb for the newbie Republican. He will be running against veteran Democrat politician Maxine Waters, who has served in the US House of Representatives since 1991. Waters won the 2016 election by 76.1 percent against her Republican rival. The district covers several cities in Los Angeles...

    California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters apparently doesn’t have a fan in black conservative entertainer Stacey Dash. The actress and former Fox News contributor blasted the congresswoman for her speech Tuesday at BET’s “Black Girls Rock” event. During her speech, Waters said, “If you come for me, I’m coming for you,” and called out “right-wing, ultra conservative, ‘alt-right’ haters.” Waters went on to threaten President Donald Trump’s presidency once again. Whether it’s the president of the United States of America or any of his Cabinet, we will say to them, ‘We will resist you, we will not allow you to damage...

    Maxine Waters’s latest rant against Donald Trump and his administration was so unhinged, it amounted to word spittle that could be hear on any street corner in L.A. Appearing before the Los Angeles Community Review Board, Waters launched into Trump, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and HUD Secretary Ben Carson. Complaining there is “uncertainty” because of the Trump administration, Waters said, “Mr. Mnuchin, who is the Treasury Secretary, who is responsible for over 36,000 foreclosures in this area, is now the Secretary of the Treasury,” repeating herself. “Standing next to him just yesterday, or day before yesterday, I’m getting these days...

    The Democratic Party fancies itself as the party of the future, but one of its top stars was born when gasoline was only 10 cents a gallon. California Congresswoman Maxine Waters turns 79 years old today. It’s been quite a year for Mad Max, who is darling of the “Resist Trump” crowd and one of the Democrats’ newest hopes. While Waters was yukking it up with the ladies on “The View” in early August, she said after Democrats are done impeaching President Trump, they’re going to go after “Putin” next.

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif) has a simple plan for deescalating tensions between the U.S. and North Korea: “give them what they want.” She acknowledged that “we may not know specifically what that is, but surely it has to be a better option than going to war.” “Look, Korea is a small, far away country,” Waters observed. “From what I understand it is a very poor place. We could probably feed, house, and clothe everyone in it for less than it would cost to bomb them. If we could ensure Kim that all the material needs of his people could easily...

    California Rep. Maxine Waters accused President Trump of "bluffing" when he vowed "fire and fury" against North Korea if the country didn't stop threatening the U.S. with nuclear weapons. "This is something we should be very concerned about, but this is not the time to go bluffing and threatening. This is the time for diplomacy," Waters told TMZ. She called on Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to staff up his department so that the U.S. can "engage" with North Korea. "The United States State Department must be stacked up to deal in diplomacy. We cannot afford to be in a...

    If she finds success, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., won't be content with only impeaching President Trump. The California Democrat revealed on The Breakfast Club Monday morning that in the unlikely scenario Democrats managed to impeach Trump, she would go after Vice President Mike Pence next. Waters, perhaps the most visible proponent of impeachment in Congress, told the hosts of the popular radio program, "Bit by bit, drip by drip, it's coming home to roost." Citing the infamous Trump dossier that reputable liberal journalists declined to publish because at least some of its information was inaccurate, Waters predicted Trump would be...
