    The New Yorker on Monday disinvited former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon from the magazine's fall festival next month following outcry over his inclusion in the event. Bannon's scheduled appearance at the annual festival sparked significant backlash Monday as a number of attendees, including actor Jim Carrey and comedian John Mulaney, said they were withdrawing from the event. “I don't want well-meaning readers and staff members to think that I've ignored their concerns," New Yorker editor David Remnick said in a statement on Monday that was shared to the magazine's Twitter account. "I've thought this through and talked to...
  • Paul Manafort's daughter changes her last name to avoid 'public perception'

    The daughter of President Donald Trump's disgraced campaign chairman is changing her surname to separate herself from its "public perception". Paul Manafort, who was Mr Trump's campaign chief during the summer of 2016, was found guilty on eight charges of tax and bank fraud last month. His daughter Jessica Manafort has now filed paperwork in a New York court to legally change her last name, the New York Post reported. Ms Manafort, an independent filmmaker, told the newspaper she was seeking the change “to separate myself and my work from a public perception that has nothing to do with the...

    Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) warned immigration officials Thursday that “When the worm turns you will not be safe.” “If you are a US government official and you are deporting Americans be warned,” the tweet read. “When the worm turns you will not be safe because you were just following orders. You do not have to take part in illegal acts ordered by this President’s administration.”
  • Don't Just Impeach Trump. Annul His Presidency.

    Robert Reich's webpage ^ | August 24, 2018 | Robert "Third" Reich
    The only way I see the end of Trump is if there’s overwhelming evidence he rigged the 2016 election. In which case impeachment isn’t an adequate remedy. His presidency should be annulled. Let me explain. Many people are convinced we’re already witnessing the beginning of the end of Trump. In their view, bombshell admissions from Trump insiders with immunity from prosecution, combined with whatever evidence Mueller uncovers about Trump’s obstruction of justice and his aide’s collusion with the Russians, will all tip the scales. Democrats will take back the House and begin an impeachment, and the evidence of impeachable offenses...

    F YOUR job requires you to spin, some days are harder than others. And if you’re one of Donald Trump’s defenders, some very hard days are on the way. We may be at the beginning of a long and tortuous period for the president, with his former campaign chairman convicted of multiple crimes, his former personal lawyer not only pleading guilty to crimes but also directly implicating Trump, and who knows what else to come in the next few days, weeks and months. So rhetorical defences are already being erected. Unfortunately for the US president, these arguments range from irrelevant...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo may have just handed Republicans a ready-made campaign ad for his rumored 2020 presidential bid – by declaring Wednesday that America “was never that great.” The Democratic star made the seemingly offhand remark as part of his rebuke of President Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan during a bill-signing in New York. But the line drew gasps from the crowd. “We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great,” Cuomo said, to an awkward blend of gasps and chuckles. “We have not reached greatness, we will reach greatness when every American...

    First Lady Melania Trump’s parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs took the oath to become U.S. citizens on Thursday but NBC Nightly News was not having it. The broadcast network speculated that they received special treatment in the process and possibly used chain migration, a program the President opposes, even though the process still exists and still legal. “Now to new questions tonight about a possible double standard when it comes to the first family,” declared a seemingly offended Lester Holt. “First lady Melania Trump's parents becoming brand new U.S. citizens today apparently through a process that President Trump has repeatedly...

But they aren’t. They are private companies that shouldn’t knowingly spread lies and hate. They took a good first step today removing Infowars. Infowars is just the tip of the iceberg of hate and lies that uses sites like Facebook and Youtube to tear our nation apart. These companies must do more than take down one website.

Sunday night, on the eve of President Trump’s summit in Finland with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Clinton trolled Trump on Twitter, questioning his loyalty to the Unites States. “Great World Cup. Question for President Trump as he meets Putin: Do you know which team you play for?”

    Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement today on President Trump’s meeting and press conference with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki: “Today’s press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate. But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake. “President Trump proved not only unable, but unwilling to stand up to Putin. He and Putin seemed to be...

    Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court, and President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to replace him, is the doomsday scenario liberals feared when Senate Republicans thwarted the appointment of Merrick Garland in 2016: The GOP’s brazen act of democratic sabotage will almost certainly deliver the high court to the far right for a generation. In the years ahead, the court will probably further erode reproductive rights, gay rights and voting rights, ushering in the darkest era in American history since the post-Reconstruction period. Sounds hysterical, right? After all, Democrats will get their chance at reversing the court’s majority...

    A Washington, D.C., bartender once followed White House Senior Adviser Stephen Miller out of a sushi restaurant and cursed at him, according to the Washington Post. In a story that detailed numerous cases of current and former Trump administration officials taking insults from members of the public in Washington, D.C., the newspaper mentioned an anecdote it said Miller had told to numerous colleagues. Miller, a former Senate aide who has had a leading role in the administration's immigration policies, told colleagues he had been insulted after picking up $80 in sushi from a restaurant near his downtown apartment. Miller reportedly...

    The Mercury News ^ | July 6, 2018 | Victor Davis Hanson
    Key Trump administration officials have been confronted at restaurants. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) urged protestors to hound Trump officials at restaurants, gas stations or department stores. Progressive pundits and the liberal media almost daily think up new ways of characterizing President Trump as a Nazi, fascist, tyrant or buffoon. Celebrities openly fantasize about doing harm to Trump. What is behind the unprecedented furor? Just as Barack Obama was not a centrist, neither is Trump. Obama promised to fundamentally transform the United States. Trump pledged to do the same and more — but in the exact opposite direction. The Trump agenda...

    On June 14, 2016, the Washington Post reported that Russian hackers had broken into the Democratic National Committee’s files and gained access to its research on Donald Trump. A political world already numbed by Trump’s astonishing rise barely took notice. News reports quoted experts who suggested the Russians merely wanted more information about Trump to inform their foreign-policy dealings. By that point, Russia was already broadcasting its strong preference for Trump through the media. Yet when news of the hacking broke, nobody raised the faintest suspicions that Russia wished to alter the outcome of the election, let alone that Trump...

    The New York Times ^ | July 8, 2018 | Charles M. Blow
    I can smell Donald Trump’s fear from here. His panic. His anxiety. And yet, I don’t have a full picture of what is causing it. The only people who know what has been discovered in the Russian election meddling probe are Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team, and they aren’t talking. But President Trump no doubt knows far more about it than the rest of us, and what he knows — or what he fears — appears to be a consuming preoccupation. He tweets about the investigation constantly. Part of this is an overt play to bend public opinion,...

    Former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) warned Republicans against continuing their "assault" against Robert Mueller, writing in an op-ed Friday that the GOP must let Mueller continue his investigation. In an opinion piece for The Washington Post, the former Tennessee Republican urged Republicans to fight for the "rule of law," even if it meant going up against the Trump administration. "I am also a Republican because I believe in the rule of law. Republicans must fight for that principle today — even if it means pushing back against a Republican administration," Frist wrote. "It isn’t easy to tell a...

    Former CIA Director John Brennan compared President Donald Trump to notorious financial fraudster Bernie Madoff Thursday evening, calling the pair “remarkably unethical.” “You are to governance & politics what Bernie Madoff was to the stock market & investment advice. The two of you share a remarkably unethical ability to deceive & manipulate others, building Ponzi schemes to aggrandize yourselves. Truth & justice ultimately caught up with Bernie,” Brennan tweeted Thursday evening.
