    Last month, a Jewish organisation in Argentina launched a petition urging people across the region to boycott Roger Waters concerts and calling the former Pink Floyd leader "one of the great anti-Semites of our time". Three gigs by UK Pink Floyd Experience, a tribute band dedicated to covering the music of the British rockers, have been cancelled after former lead singer of Pink Floyd Roger Waters urged the musicians not to perform in Israel "in the name of everything human". In a message published on his Facebook page, Waters said, in particular, that he is "aghast to see" that UK...

    **SNIP** He noted that Waters was the subject of a House Ethics Committee investigation in 2010 over a meeting she arranged between the Treasury Department and representatives of OneUnited bank, where her husband was a notable shareholder. OneUnited went on to obtain $12 million in federal bailout funding. The ethics charges against Waters were dropped in 2012. "By the time Maxine Waters scheduled the meeting with the Treasury secretary, her husband owned approximately $350,000 in OneUnited stock, all of which would have likely gone down the drain without the bailout money she helped secure," Hilton said. "How lovely for Maxine...

    The reckoning is on its way! After calling Rep. Maxine Waters all kinds of dumb, don’t expect our favorite auntie to take her time launching an investigation into President Donald Trump’s finances when she becomes chair of the House Financial Services Committee now that the Dems rule the House of Representatives. The venerable California Democrat who won yet another congressional term, is one of the strongest critics of Trump, has battled with the President and endured insult after insult since he Trump took office. From referring to Waters as having a low-IQ to calling her crazy and corrupt, Trump has...

    In what she hopes will be a clinching argument for voters to give Democrats the majority needed to control Congress, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif) vowed that “strengthening penalties against those who oppose the LGBT agenda will be a top priority.” “Our society is stained by continued resistance to the rights of the LGBT community,” Pelosi complained. “We see religious adoption agencies insisting on placing children in homes with both a mother and a father. We see schools that bar boys who see themselves as girls from using the girls locker room. We see small businesses trying to get...

    Violence: Already angry over their inability to control the flow of politics in Washington, the militant Left is getting even angrier. And more militant. Following a week in which Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee were unable to stop a hugely qualified constitutional jurist, Brett Kavanaugh, from advancing to a vote of the full Senate despite the use of a “hail Mary” sexual assault allegation, the perpetually triggered Left is lurching towards a full meltdown, even to the point of openly calling for violence against all conservatives and supporters of POTUS Donald Trump. As noted by PJ Media, self-avowed Communists...

    Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters (Calif.) said in a new interview that she "ain’t scared" after being targeted by two packages containing pipe bombs. "We have to keep to doing what we're doing in order to make this country right; that’s what I intend to do, and as the young people say, 'I ain't scared,'" Waters told Blavity. The California Democrat also called on President Trump to "take responsibility for the kind of violence that we are seeing for the first time in different ways," in the wake of multiple explosive devices sent to prominent Democrats.

    A Capitol Police explosive ordnance team was dispatched to a House of Representatives mail processing facility in Capitol Heights, Maryland, following a string of suspected explosive devices sent to prominent Democrats. The package in question was addressed to California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters. Since the anthrax attacks in 2001, mail for Congress has been sent to offsite facilities for screening. House and Senate mail is processed separately in two Maryland facilities. This means that mail can take anywhere from 10 to 14 days to reach its destination. “Under no circumstances should anyone ever bring unopened mail or packages from outside...

    Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters is predicting the backlash against newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh will continue well into his tenure. Speaking to Black Hollywood Live before the 2018 Merge Summit in Los Angeles on Friday, Mrs. Waters had some words of encouragement for people who feel dejected by the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh, who faced allegations of committing sexual misconduct more than 30 years ago. “Never stop,” she instructed liberals, according to a clip flagged by NTK Network on Monday. “That is what we have to do with what happened to Kavanaugh and this confirmation process. “It...

    American Thinker ^ | 12 Oct, 2018 | William L. Gensert
    Hillary Clinton said it best: "civility can start again" only when the Democrats regain power. And "the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength." Eric Holder, the Obama mini-me, wasn't far behind when he said, "When they go low, we kick them." He meant not only Republicans but anyone who disagrees with their plans. The Democrats have overtly committed to violence. If we needed further evidence, we need only look at what Antifa did in Portland the other day, where the police faded away, ceding the streets to Antifa, whose members blocked streets and ordered...

    This summer, California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters called on her supporters to harass cabinet officials. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that you “cannot be civil” with members of the Republican Party. And Wednesday, videotape was released of former Attorney General Eric Holder telling a Democratic audience at a campaign rally on Sunday that they should “kick” Republicans when they perceive them as “going low.” Despite the continued reports of politically motivated threats or violence, Democratic Party leaders have worked to keep this anger burning and incite even more harassment and violence. Beginning with my own near-death experience...

    Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., is facing scrutiny from a conservative watchdog group for possibly violating fundraising rules in a slate mailer, with the group requesting that Waters’ campaign committee be audited as a result. The Federal Election Commission received a complaint Monday from the National Legal and Policy Center claiming that Waters, her campaign, and a pro-charter school group called Families and Teachers for Antonio Villaraigosa violated federal election law. The complaint claims the group paid $25,000 for Villaraigosa to be featured in the Waters mailer when he was running for governor in the Democratic primary earlier this year. Although...
