    hen I was an executive in the National Football League a few years ago, our organization was consumed by the case of Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback whose silent kneeling protest against police brutality arguably led him to lose his NFL career and not be re-signed by any club. No teams wanted to sign a player -- even one as talented as Kaepernick -- whom they saw as controversial, and, therefore, bad for business.

    Lady Gaga is holding President Donald Trump responsible for the race riots that have engulfed the country, calling the president a “racist” who “offers nothing but ignorance and prejudice while black lives continue to be taken.” The Oscar-winning pop star and actress posted a lengthy statement on Twitter late Saturday in which she expressed her outrage over the in-custody death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. She also acknowledged her position as a “white, privileged woman” and the need for the “privileged community” to do more for the black community.

    You’d be forgiven if you hadn’t noticed. His verbal bombshells are louder than ever, but Donald J Trump is no longer president of the United States. By having no constructive response to any of the monumental crises now convulsing America, Trump has abdicated his office. He is not governing. He’s golfing, watching cable TV and tweeting. How has Trump responded to the widespread unrest following the murder in Minneapolis of George Floyd, a black man who died after a white police officer knelt on his neck for minutes as he was handcuffed on the ground?

    WASHINGTON -- Members of three House and Senate committees will interview former State Department Inspector General Steve Linick on Wednesday as part of an investigation by House Democrats into his abrupt firing by President Donald Trump. The investigation is being led by House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., House Oversight and Reform Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., and New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Republicans on those panels will also be invited to question Linick and other witnesses. “If Secretary Pompeo pushed for Mr. Linick’s dismissal to cover up his own...

    Snopes fact-checker Jessica Lee has deleted her earlier tweets about hearing a gunshot outside her home because she’d rather not make a big thing about it online … anymore. I deleted earlier tweets about a gunshot outside my home. Law enforcement has been called, and for my safety, I’d rather not be at the center of any online debate about it. Thanks for understanding. — Jessica Lee (@byjlee) May 30, 2020 The tweet she deleted said that she’d witnessed a big white truck with a MAGA hat. Must have been a big hat.

    Well, it took a few days, but the agitators of race and class have finally made it to south Florida. And, true to form, local media is there to applaud. No social distancing. Blocking legal movement of traffic and commerce. Yet, will the media challenge any narrative put out by the mob leaders? Ha. Not a chance. Local newspaper, radio and television only AMPLIFY the left wing myths. Right now only ABC and FOX stations are carrying the illegal actions of the mobs....thankfully CBS and NBC are showing car races and golf.

    VIDEO Dr. Bandy X. Lee, an incredibly unprofessional psychiatrist who has been making a career out of her deranged obsession with Trump, is now warning that we can't wait until the November election to remove Trump from office because he has access to nuclear weapons which he will probably use according to her. Some of the highlights of Mark Levin's interview with her reveals just how far gone this loon is as he beautifully, and hilariously, exposes how little professional credibility she actually has.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel will not travel to Washington at US President Donald Trump’s request to attend the Group of Seven (G7) summit in Washington DC, according to a report from Politico on Friday. “The federal chancellor thanks President Trump for his invitation to the G7 summit at the end of June in Washington,” German government spokesman Steffen Seibert told the outlet. “As of today, considering the overall pandemic situation, she cannot agree to her personal participation, to a journey to Washington,” Seibert said. Trump has been rallying behind the idea of hosting a G7 summit in person, months after...

    Twitter placed a warning label on one of President Trump's tweets about the protests in Minneapolis, Minnesota over George Floyd, a black man who died in police custody. The social media giant said the early Friday morning tweet, which called the protesters "THUGS" and implied they could be shot, "glorified violence" and therefore violated Twitter's rules on violence. Twitter did not take the tweet down, but it is hidden from view unless a user wants to see it. . . . "Twitter is doing nothing about all of the lies & propaganda being put out by China or the Radical...

Please leave our employees out of this. We’ll continue to point out incorrect or disputed information about elections globally. And we will admit to and own any mistakes we make. — jack

    Don Lemon, blamed the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis on President Trump. On top of that, he and Chris Cuomo asserted that people on the right would be all-in for gun control if it were African Americans protesting like those demanding Michigan reopen. . . . How many more excuses do you need to make before you examine yourself and say, okay, maybe I need to wake up a little bit and take a good long look at what I've been doing. Maybe I need to understand or realize that the environment that this President has trafficked in can...

    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) will announce today that he is working with Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee to craft legislation that would strip social media giants of their Section 230 legal immunity if they fact check content on their platforms, according to a copy of his podcast which Breitbart News exclusively obtained. On the Florida conservative’s podcast, Hot Takes with Matt Gaetz, he said that he is working on a bill that would prevent social media giants such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google from fact-checking content on their platforms. Gaetz’s announcement follows as Twitter decided to fact check...

    Kathy Griffin advocated plunging an air-filled syringe into President Trump.

F--- TRUMP."
  • Trump’s poor handling of the crisis may lose him the GOP’s most reliable voters (fake news makes predictions)

    05/25/2020 7:11:56 PM PDT · by Libloather · 93 replies
    One of the most durable political assets that Republicans have enjoyed throughout the 21st century is their edge among Americans 65 and older, who tend to turn out at the polls more reliably any other group. But with President Trump’s inept and erratic handling of the novel coronavirus pandemic, he is rapidly losing support among the age group most vulnerable to its ravages - which is a big warning sign to Republicans as they look to the fall. Trump has also been showing slippage in support among the next-oldest cohort, those 55 and older. The shift has been showing up...

    In a tacit admission of how the Democratic Party thinks of the black community on Friday, presumptive nominee Joe Biden exclaimed that if a black person had to think about voting for him or President Trump, then their blackness was in question. By Sunday, NBC was tired of hearing the outrage at Biden’s blatantly racist remark with Sunday Today host Willie Geist huffing that Biden had to apologize for “two days,” and Political director Chuck Todd lamented that the former Vice President was being held to account at all. After huffing about “two days” of walking back the comments, Geist...

    Never Trump Republicans planning to gather in Charlotte, North Carolina, in August, at the same moment as President Trump’s renomination celebration there are taking aim at congressional Republicans. The “Convention on Founding Principles” is scheduled to coincide with the Republican presidential nominating convention, which is set for Aug. 24–27 at the Spectrum Center arena. . . . “Even if Trump weren’t in the picture, the party would still need some reforming,” said Evan McMullin, a Never Trump Republican and one of the organizers of the event. McMullin mounted a failed, eleventh-hour third-party bid against Trump in 2016 and later co-founded...

'Honestly, if he fails to wear a mask, he's going to be asked not to return to any enclosed facility inside our state,' Dana Nessel, a Democrat, told CNN. . . . Nessel threatened to take legal action against Ford Motors if the president doesn't wear a face covering.

    China’s Communist Party will impose a sweeping national security law in Hong Kong by fiat during the annual meeting of its top political body, officials said Thursday, criminalizing “foreign interference” along with secessionist activities and subversion of state power. The move is the boldest yet from Beijing to undercut Hong Kong’s autonomy and bring the global financial hub under its full control, as it works to rewrite the rules that have allowed the territory to enjoy a level of autonomy for the past 23 years. After steadily eroding Hong Kong’s political freedoms and independent legal system, Beijing signaled that the...
