    A previous leader of the Democratic party confirmed on Thursday that Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary. Rickey Cole, the previous leader of the Mississippi Democrat Party, confirmed in a Facebook comment on Thursday. “Cindy was for Hillary in 2008,” Cole wrote in a Facebook comment on Thursday night. indy Hyde-Smith urged more women to run for office when asked about Hillary Clinton becoming the first woman nominated for a major political party in 2016. “We are always supporting women,” Hyde-Smith told the Clarion-Ledger. We want to promote women. I think women...
  • Rod Rosenstein’s departure was imminent. Now he is likely to survive until after the midterms

    09/25/2018 7:07:11 PM PDT · by Bigtigermike · 68 replies
    Rod J. Rosenstein’s departure seemed so certain this week that his boss’s chief of staff told colleagues that he had been tapped by the White House to take over as second-in-command of the Justice Department, while another official would supervise the special counsel probe into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, people familiar with the matter said. But by Monday afternoon, the succession plan had been scrapped. Rosenstein, who told the White House he was willing to quit if President Trump wouldn’t disparage him, would remain the deputy attorney general in advance of a high-stakes meeting on Thursday to discuss...

    The Politico ^ | September 25, 2018 | Burgess Everett and Elana Schor
    Democratic leaders need a unified caucus to put maximum pressure on a handful of holdout Republicans. Democrats have all the cover they need to vote in lockstep against Brett Kavanaugh. But a half-dozen of them have refused to go there, even after the pair of sexual assault allegations against the Supreme Court nominee. Democratic insiders are feeling more bullish than ever that the party’s 49 caucus members ultimately will oppose Kavanaugh. Yet the undeclared bloc of Democratic senators could be a problem for Democratic leaders, who want to put the weight of the nomination entirely on a handful of holdout...

    President Trump's new limousine reportedly costs $1.5 million and comes complete with a fridge stocked with samples of his blood type. NBC reports that Trump on Tuesday rolled up to the United Nations in the new vehicle , nicknamed The Beast like the previous limo. The new limousine's predecessor was introduced during President Obama's first term. The new Beast is one of a dozen initially estimated at $15.8 million in total, and is plated with a military grade armor and has five-inch, multilayer windows, according to NBC. All the protective measures make the doors as heavy as those of a...
  • Stormy Daniels Attorney Avenatti Denies He Was Punked by Fake Kavanaugh Accuser From 4Chan

    Michael Avenatti denied the claim that he was pranked by a 4Chan user who claimed to have tricked the lawyer into believing that his girlfriend was the latest women with allegations against Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Avenatti has claimed to be representing a woman who knew Kavanaugh in high school and accused him of setting up girls to be raped. “When the American people hear from her, they will determine, as I have, that she is to be believed,” Avenatti said during a press conference Monday evening. Rumors began swirling Tuesday afternoon that the Lawyer may have been pranked...

    Time Magazine ^ | September 25, 2018 | Olivia B. Waxman
    It’s been almost two years since Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election to Donald Trump in a stunning upset. Director Michael Moore lays out his take on how Trump pulled off the surprise victory in his latest film, Fahrenheit 11/9, in theaters Friday. (The title is a riff on the day when the race was called for Trump and the title of his 2004 movie Fahrenheit 9/11). In his new doc, the liberal Moore slams Republicans, showing footage of Adolf Hitler dubbed with Trump speeches. But he also criticizes Democrats, claiming that the party rigged the Democratic National Convention to...

    The New York Times ^ | September 25, 2018 | Peter Baker
    As President Trump fights for confirmation of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, the stakes go beyond the fate of this particular conservative nominee. At risk for Mr. Trump is his ability to install any more conservatives on the court at all. If Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination falls apart in the face of sexual misconduct accusations, Mr. Trump faces the very real possibility that he could lose his chance to put even his second choice in this seat, which holds the balance between conservative and liberal wings on the nation’s most important court. Democrats need to pick up only...

  • UN: Iran’s Rouhani Calls Trump Back to Negotiation Table , Says U.S. is Waging “Economic War”

    Iranian President Hassan Rouhani urged the U.S. to reconsider its abandonment of the JCPOA nuclear deal while accusing the nation of waging “economic war” with sanctions. While speaking at the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday Rouhani warned of rulers who have “xenophobic tendencies resembling a Nazi disposition”, and claimed that “those seeking dominance and hegemony are enemies of peace and perpetrators of war.” “We invite you to come back to the negotiating table you left. If you dislike the JCPOA because it is the legacy of your domestic political rivals then we invite you to come back to the Security...

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) President Donald Trump was at the UN on Tuesday. There he delivered one of the most grand, soaring and inspirational speeches ever delivered by a U.S. president. It will be largely ignored and/or mis-portrayed by our fake national news media who hate everything this President says or does, but it will not and cannot be ignored by the array of despotic, globalist thugs and grifters who by and large make up the UN general assembly. The President drew a stark contrast between himself and his four immediate predecessors in the job,...

    President Donald Trump questioned the motives behind women accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault on Tuesday and stalling the Senate confirmation vote. “Democrats are playing a con game — C-O-N,” Trump said in response to the controversy. He made his remarks after his speech at the United Nations General Assembly during a meeting with the new president of Colombia.

    UNITED NATIONS-- President Donald Trump delivered a sharp rebuke of global governing at the United Nations on Tuesday, drawing headshakes and even mocking laughter from fellow world leaders as he promoted his aggressive "America First" agenda and boasted of America's economic and military might. Trump arrived late, forcing a last-minute scheduling switch, then received polite applause but also blank stares as he took his blustery brand of policies to the annual General Assembly. Speaking in triumphal terms, Trump approached the address as an annual report to the world on his country's progress since his inauguration. He touted economic figures, declared...

    A band of HBO stars — including Sarah Jessica Parker, Lena Dunham and Maggie Gyllenhaal — is speaking out ahead of the midterm elections — by staying silent. "Westworld's" Ed Harris, “Veep’s” Tony Hale, Anthony Carrigan from “Barry,” “Insecure’s” Yvonne Orji and "Crashing's" Pete Holmes are among the group of celebrities from the premium cable network seen standing silently as they face the camera in a PSA released Tuesday. A message at the end of the minute-long clip reads simply, “Right now, there’s only one voice that needs to be heard. Yours.” The video, produced by Rock the Vote and...

    United Nations General Assembly speeches are usually downright boring, dominating the news cycle for a day or so with the world quickly moving on. In years past, I nearly fell asleep when George W. Bush or Barack Obama took to the podium. But not any longer. For better or worse, Donald Trump has turned his U.N. speech into what can only be described as must-see TV, or for the social media generation, a live-tweeting fest like no other. While last year’s speech, threatening to “totally destroy North Korea” and anointing Kim Jong Un as “rocket man,” made the Washington foreign...

    The Trump phenomenon is impossible to gainsay. The attempted political assassination of Brett Kavanaugh is bad for the country, but good for a Trumpian attitude toward American politics. The last-minute ambush validates key assumptions of Donald Trump’s supporters that fueled his rise and buttress him in office, no matter how rocky the ride has been or will become. At least three premises have been underlined by the tawdry events of the past couple of weeks. First, that good character is no defense. If you are John McCain, who genuinely tried to do the right thing and carefully cultivated a relationship...

    President Trump on Tuesday took aim at Iran in a defiant address to the United Nations, calling on world leaders to join the U.S. in isolating Tehran over its "aggression." Trump used a large portion of his address to tout his administration's plans to launch a "campaign of economic pressure" aimed at starving Iran of money it would use "to advance its bloody agenda" in the Middle East and beyond. The president noted his decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Obama-era nuclear agreement between Iran and other world powers and stressed that many sanctions would be reimposed on Iran...

    Republican Rep. Mike Coffman (Colo.) says in a new interview that he tries to "tune out" President Trump whenever possible. “I try and tune out the president whenever I can, in terms of his tone and saying things that I think are inappropriate,” Coffman told BuzzFeed News for a story published Tuesday. "Unfortunately ... it takes a lot of oxygen," Coffman added. Coffman, who has previously criticized the Trump administration, is facing a difficult reelection bid in November's midterms against Democratic challenger Jason Crow. The nonpartisan Cook Political Report rates the race as a "toss-up," while FiveThirtyEight projects that Coffman...

    Members of the United Nations laughed during President Donald Trump’s speech to the General Assembly after he claimed that his White House had accomplished “almost more than any administration in the history” of the United States. The non-laugh line and the amusement from the audience that followed knocked Trump off from his prepared text, before he improvised: “So true. Didn’t expect that reaction but that’s okay.” Watch below: Members of the United Nations laughed during President Donald Trump’s speech to the General Assembly after he claimed that his White House had accomplished “almost more than any administration in the history”...
