    A liberal activist who says he was protesting right-wing groups marching in Portland says he was beaten bloody by members of Antifa angry at him for holding an American flag. Paul Welch told Oregon Live that he attended a protest march led by Proud Boys and other right-wing groups with the intent of demonstrating what he called a "tacitly fascist" event. Instead, Welch says he was struck from behind in the head with a club by Antifa members who demanded that he drop his American flag, which they called a fascist symbol. "I didn't come as a part of any...

    So, I don't agree with Mark Levin all the time? So what! I care more about my agreements with him than my disagreements with him. Mature people don't agree with each other 100% of time. You know that, don't you? He's a true conservative and more importantly, a true American, and therefore a true patriot. Some of you are upset because Mark is not a Trump cultist and at times disagrees with him. Well, that's the sign of a patriot. Patriots are not cultists for anyone. By the way, Mark supported Trump in the election. Do you remember that? You...
  • Rep. Justin Amash Hammers Trump's 'Unlawful' Immigration Ban (Freedom Caucus)

    03/30/2017 8:31:36 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 183 replies ^ | January 29, 2017
    "Unlawful" and "extreme" is how West Michigan Rep. Justin Amash described President Donald Trump's executive order to ban refugees and citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries. "It's not lawful to ban immigrants on the basis of nationality," Amash said in the statement. Trump's order blocks citizens from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia and Libya from entering the country for at least 90 days. It also bans refugees from anywhere in the world for 120 days -- and from Syria indefinitely. "Ultimately, the executive order appears to be more about politics than safety," Amash said. "If the concern is radicalism and...
  • Don't attack President Trump (vanity)

    Anyone who attacks President Trump is doing Obama's, Clinton's, Pelosi's & Schumer's bidding. Attacking President Trump puts you in with those traitors. President Trump is turning this nation around and if you attack him out of some fantasy you have about what he promised or what he meant or what he literally said because it doesn't match up with your jackass fantasy world then you will be treated as those other, aforementioned, traitors are. Your choice.

    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Independent bookstores have faced tough times for quite a while. In San Francisco, neighborhood businesses have been passionately protected, so it's hard to believe that an initiative passed by voters to raise the minimum wage is driving a Mission District bookstore out of business. San Francisco's minimum wage is currently $11.05 an hour. By July of 2018, the minimum wage in San Francisco will be $15 an hour. That increase is forcing Borderlands Bookstore to write its last chapter now. When actor Scott Cox took a job at Borderlands Books he didn't do it for the...

    Mitt Romney may be the best candidate in the 2012 GOP primary, but that's not saying much. It's like being the best mayor of Oakland. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota may not be ready for the Oval Office, but she's been a feisty challenger not afraid to take on Romney, Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry. She will emerge from the primary with more authority than she had when she entered the race. Radio talk-show host Herman Cain won points with his unique personal success story in the corporate world, no small feat for a black man who grew up in...

    About 100 people marched, held signs and sang union songs Thursday to protest layoffs at Berkeley-based radio station KPFA, the liberal bastion on the FM dial. Facing a drop of about $500,000 a year in listener donations and other funding for each of the past three years, KPFA's parent organization, Pacifica Foundation, plans to cut the equivalent of seven full-time jobs from a paid staff whose full- and part-time hours add up to about 30 full-time positions, said Tracy Rosenberg, a KPFA and Pacifica board member. Rosenberg said the station's budget this year is about $3.6 million, but the station...

    Political fights within parties are often more heated than those between candidates of opposite parties, as this year's increasingly sharp duel between Republican gubernatorial candidates Steve Poizner and Meg Whitman underscores. Intraparty squabbles often hinge on relatively small differences, such as the Poizner-Whitman dust-up over who's tougher on illegal immigration – a shrill squabble that may fatally damage the election chances of the eventual nominee. There are two even nastier intraparty battles under way this spring. One is a rematch between the 36th Congressional District's Democratic incumbent, Jane Harman, and high school teacher Marcy Winograd, who challenged Harman in 2006....

    Meg Whitman's nonstop five-month barrage of radio ads has vaulted her into a huge poll lead in the Republican run for governor, with most surveys showing her ahead of rival Steve Poizner by about 30 percentage points. The same polls show she's drawn almost even with Democrat Jerry Brown, the presumptive Democratic candidate to replace Gov...Schwarzenegger. It's a position once enjoyed by former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan, who held a similar lead over rival Bill Simon at just about the same time in 2002, when the primary election was contested much earlier than this year's date of June 8....

    SAN FRANCISCO -- The $21 million war between San Francisco's alternative newspapers heated up in court Monday when the Bay Guardian asked for a stake in all property belonging to the rival SF Weekly and its parent company, the 14-paper Village Voice Media. Nearly two years after a San Francisco jury found that SF Weekly had engaged in illegal price-cutting for advertisements to try to ruin the Bay Guardian, the Guardian has gotten court orders that allowed it to seize and sell its rival's two delivery trucks and confiscate the rents the Weekly receives from tenants in its office space...

    "Clean coal is a dirty lie," says environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who calls President Barack Obama and other politicians who commit taxpayer money to develop it "indentured servants" of the coal industry. Despite a series of expensive false starts and failures, President Obama proposed $3.4 billion in stimulus legislation to fund continued research on "clean coal" projects. "Clean coal is like healthy cigarettes, it does not exist," says former Vice President Al Gore. The coal industry has been running a multi-million dollar advertising blitz to promote the theory that coal can be made clean, using one of Obama's campaign...

    WASHINGTON, (AP) -- Even as Democrats controlling Congress continue to struggle with a long-overdue war funding bill, they are starting work on a series of spending measures for next year that are doomed by veto promises from President Bush. The first of those 12 bills, funding agency budgets for the budget year beginning Oct. 1, would award an almost 6 percent increase to the Homeland Security Department. A House Appropriations panel approved the $39.9 billion measure unanimously on Wednesday. The measure is likely to earn a Bush veto threat for costing too much and it's unclear whether Democrats will even...

    A day before the Democratic National Committee's Rules and Bylaws Committee is set to determine how to seat the delegations of Florida and Michigan, the Clinton campaign's chief lawyer said the committee is compelled to seat both delegations fully and not award Sen. Barack Obama any delegates from Michigan. In a letter addressed to the co-chairs of the committee, Clinton lawyer Lyn Utrecht said both states have already been sufficiently punished because of lack of campaign activity. Florida Democrats voted 50 percent for Clinton and 33 percent for Obama. "It is a bedrock principle of our Party that every vote...

    San Francisco -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she will step in if necessary to make sure the presidential nomination fight between Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama does not reach the Democratic national convention - though she believes it could be resolved as early as next week. Pelosi predicted Wednesday that a presidential nominee will emerge in the week after the final Democratic primaries on June 3, but she said "I will step in" if there is no resolution by late June regarding the seating of delegates from Florida and Michigan, the two states that defied party rules by...

    An East Bay assemblywoman and state senate candidate says a recent mailer slamming her record on education shows nothing more than an American Indian tribe's vengeance about her opposition to its big casino plans in San Pablo — and even her main rival came to her defense. Democratic voters in the 9th Senate District recently received a mailer accusing Assemblywoman Loni Hancock, D-Berkeley, of trying to weaken state academic standards in legislation she sponsored in 2006. Hancock faces off in the June 3 state Senate primary against former Assembly Majority Leader Wilma Chan of Alameda. But the mailer wasn't paid...

    The long race for the Democratic presidential nomination has been about votes, money and political power, but in the final days it's coming down to one thing more: the public relations war. And as they head for the finish line, both Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton are scrapping for the advantage. Perception: Obama, as superdelegates march to his side, has already "won" the Democratic nomination, a view underscored by the latest cover of Time magazine, which shows a smiling Obama with the headline "And The Winner Is ..." Even longtime Clinton loyalist Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel said Friday that...
