    Eminem shook the digital sphere when he spit his hard-hitting cypher during the BET Hip Hop Awards. The internet erupted in celebration when Em dropped a few bars throwing shots at Donald Trump, but t it seems that everyone took notice of the Detroit artist's cypher — except for Donnie himself. And according to a new interview with Shade 45, Eminem isn’t too pleased about it.

    In an exclusive interview with Mother Jones, Clinton says Russian interference and GOP voter suppression efforts may have cost her the presidency.A year after her defeat by Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton says “there are lots of questions about its legitimacy” due to Russian interference and widespread voter suppression efforts. In an interview with Mother Jones in downtown Manhattan, Clinton said Russian meddling in the election “was one of the major contributors to the outcome.” The Russians used “weaponized false information,” she said, in “a very successful disinformation campaign” that “wasn’t just influencing voters—it was determining...

    This has been a crazy year in American politics, perhaps the most tumultuous year since 1968. When, in the early morning hours of November 9, the outcome of the 2016 election became clear, almost everyone -- experts and non-experts alike -- felt that the political earth had trembled beneath their feet. Here are thirteen of the most shocking moments since Donald Trump won the election. 1. On November 27, 2016, President Trump tweets that "I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally." 2. As he takes office, President Trump refuses to create a...

    CNN President Jeff Zucker on Wednesday said President Trump is trying to bully the news network, but added that he won't let Trump "intimidate" his employees. “My job is to remind everyone that they need to stay focused doing their job,” Zucker told The New York Times Wednesday. “He’s trying to bully us, and we’re not going to let him intimidate us. You can’t lose your confidence and let that change the way you conduct yourselves.” {.. snip..}

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — As many in the United States celebrate the Fourth of July holiday, some minorities have mixed feelings about the revelry of fireworks and parades in an atmosphere of tension on several fronts. How do you celebrate during what some people of color consider troubling times? Blacks, Latinos and immigrant rights advocates say the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election, recent non-convictions of police officers charged in the shootings of black men, and the stepped-up detentions of immigrants and refugees for deportation have them questioning equality and the promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness...

    The journalists on CNN prove daily that they are members of the opposition party when it comes to the President. Inside Politics host John King on Tuesday delivered a whining “speech” about Donald Trump’s “bad” treatment of journalists. Specifically complaining about press access, King huffed, “There's a bigger issue about White House transparency and secrecy.” King spent time demanding televised press briefings, chiding, “I'm a TV person, so we want the camera in the room.” Getting worked up, the journalist snapped, “But it is bad. It is bad when an administration starts to retreat from a public disclosure and public...

    Though the Freedom Caucus is under assault from all sides, some of its members who have spoken to the media or made public statements are standing strong — insisting that they are willing to work with President Trump to keep the GOP’s promise to repeal Obamacare. The media has used the failure of the American Health Care Act — Republican leadership’s phony repeal bill — as an excuse to attack conservatives in Congress. The Tea Party members of the Freedom Caucus, who opposed the legislation on grounds that it would not improve the American health insurance market, have been...

    Ted Cruz was once one of Donald Trump’s most vocal critics. Now he's one of the president-elect's most important Senate allies. Ted Cruz met with Donald Trump exactly one week after Election Day. As it turned out, Cruz’s tete-a-tete with the president-elect he had spurned from the stage of the Republican National Convention just months before wasn’t the most consequential meeting he would have that day. After his talk with Trump, the Texas senator and his chief of staff, David Polyansky, then sat down with his chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, who sounded him out about his interest in filling the...

    Sour grapes. That’s how Donald Trump’s closest advisers see Democrats’ complaints that Moscow hacked their private emails this election season in a bid to sow discord among their supporters and sway the election toward Republicans. The pushback comes ahead of the Electoral College vote, which was expected to make official Trump’s election win and pave his way to take office on Jan. 20. “Let’s assume it’s true,” Reince Priebus, Trump’s incoming chief of staff, said Sunday of Russian interference in the election. “There’s no evidence that shows that the outcome of the election was changed because of a couple dozen...

    Actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger believes it is time for all Americans to throw their support behind President-elect Donald Trump. In an interview on Today Thursday morning, the new host of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice — who stumped and voted for Ohio Gov. John Kasich in the primaries and later said he would not vote for Trump in the general election — said that now that the election is over, it is important to put divisions aside and come together for the good of the country. “What changed is that now he is elected and now it is very...

    Hillary Clinton is "hurting" following her election loss to Donald Trump, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Wednesday. "I think it is fair to say she’s hurting," Feinstein said during an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell. The Democrat had lunch with Clinton last week when the former secretary of state visited Capitol Hill to attend Nevada Sen. Harry Reid’s retirement party. "She is brave," Feinstein said of Clinton. "She is a real professional in the sense of her values, care, concern. I think all of us know who watch that campaign, it was a very hard campaign for her - the...

    On Monday, members of the Electoral College will gather in each state to select a president. We call on them, particularly Republican electors, to deny Donald Trump the presidency — as the Constitution allows and as the Founding Fathers envisioned for a candidate so antithetical to their aspirations for the nation's highest office.

    (CNSNews.com) – Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) held a forum Tuesday on the future of the Electoral College, which he claimed was “rooted in slavery.” “We also must face up to the cold reality that the Electoral College is rooted in slavery,” Conyers said in his opening statement. Conyers referenced a claim by one of the witnesses, Yale Law professor Akhil Amar, that “states opposed direct elections for the president, because in a direct election system, the North would outnumber the South, whose many slaves could not vote, but the Electoral College instead let each southern state count its slaves, although...

    The only thing that makes nightmares tolerable is that you never do experience the consequences. You might be falling from a great height, but you wake up — or miraculously change scenery — before you can hit the ground, or even wonder about survival. For most of the world, Donald Trump’s election feels like a nightmare that lacks that one saving grace. For the last few days we have all been in free fall, with the ground fast approaching, except that we also know we are wide awake.

    INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The Indiana Democratic Party is firing back at Indiana’s secretary of state, saying she’s misleading Hoosiers on voter registration irregularities. Democrats say the accusations by Secretary of State Connie Lawson were politically motivated, especially in an election cycle where voter turnout is expected to be high. Earlier this week Lawson said thousands of birth dates and names on voter registrations were changed. Those comments prompted an Indiana State Police investigation into possible voter fraud. On Wednesday, Lawson clarified her original statement. She now says people may have rushed to correct their names or birth dates and that...

    When I was 16, a Texas police officer pulled me over and said "it's people like you that are ruining this country. Go back to your country." People who speed, I thought? Girls who are late for figure skating practice? I wasn't sure what he meant. What country was I supposed to go to? I was born and raised in Austin. Then, it dawned on me. It was a month after 9/11, and he meant Muslims. Islamophobia is widespread. In the 15 years that have followed the Sept. 11 attacks, many Muslim or Middle Eastern Americans have been repeatedly...

    Republican Texas Senator and former presidential candidate Ted Cruz may be speaking at the Republican National Convention this week, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t willing to call out those who he believe cost him the race against Donald Trump. “Four weeks before we dropped out, we were winning the race…” Cruz said in a podcast interview with Politico’s Glenn Thrush. “In the 30 days before Indiana primary, Trump got $500 million in free media, 90 percent was positive. What the media said on every station is, ‘Trump is unbeatable, he can’t be beaten,’ while he’s losing. He’d lose state...

    Ted Cruz on Wyoming win: "This is how elections are won in America." Once again, voters are not represented in the process. Instead, "votes" for the nominee are gained by backroom politics. Another corrupt process by the GOP establishment. From Fox News: Ted Cruz on Saturday won all 14 delegates in the Wyoming GOP convention -- a relatively small number but enough for the Texas senator to declare victory and keep GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump from securing the nomination. “We are likely to have a battle in Cleveland to decide who is the nominee,” Cruz told party members before...
