Yeah, there’s a lot of political stuff swirling the various news feeds. However, it’s worth watching the CNN debate tonight between Tom Perez and Keith Ellison for DNC Chairmanship. The actual DNC voting will take place on Saturday February 25th. The long term future of the Democrat party is being fought amid two distinct constituencies. The establishment wing of the Democrat Party, represented by Perez; and the more insurgent wing of the party apparatus represented by Ellison.

The seven candidates for chair of the Democratic National Committee laid out their plans to lead the political party, including impeaching President Trump - a rallying cry even House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has said is not yet warranted. One of the top contenders in the race, Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., cited examples of actions Trump has taken in his first month in office that are worthy of being fired as commander in chief. "I think that Donald Trump has already done a number of things which legitimately raise the question of impeachment. On day one, he was in violation

Mediaite was the first to draw attention yesterday to a questionable statement of fact made by longtime White House correspondent April Ryan. Ryan told Sean Spicer that while on the campaign trial, Donald Trump “said things like, you know, ‘We made this country,’ meaning white America, not necessarily black.” When Spicer denied he had said any such thing, Ryan insisted, “No, no, no. He said that. I heard him say that.” Looking back at that piece yesterday, I gave Ryan the benefit of the doubt. I thought she perhaps had made a mistake and this would be quickly corrected. I

Confronting a national debt that nearly doubled under President Obama, President Trump said Wednesday he inherited a federal budget “mess” and vowed to force Washington to stop wasting taxpayers’ money. “The finances of our country are a mess, but we’re going to clean them up,” the president told reporters. “We won’t let your money be wasted anymore. We must do a lot more with less.” Preparing for a prime-time address to Congress next week, Mr. Trump met with budget officials and said he will unveil his first proposed budget, a retooled plan to replace Obamacare, and a tax-reform package over

State Rep.

Between the Tri-State and Lake Shore Drive, the expressway bears

Entire San Jose neighborhoods were submerged by water on Wednesday during the worst floods for 100 years. 50,000 people were told to flee their homes after evacuation warnings were issued in the early hours of the morning. Most were issued a flood warning but for 14,000 the order was mandatory. The flooding began when Coyote Creek, which runs through Silicone Valley from the San Francisco Bay, burst its banks on Tuesday night. It sent dirty water pouring in to the towns below it at frightening pace. On Wednesday, residents complained that the alert had not been sent out fast enough. Some

Once asked by an aide to respond to a letter to the editor from one of his critics, Vladimir Lenin refused, saying: “Why should we bother to reply to Kautsky? He would reply to us, and we would have to reply to his reply. There’s no end to that. It will be quite enough for us to announce that Kautsky is a traitor to the working class, and everyone will understand everything.” That has been the modus operandi of the left for decades. It doesn’t respond to arguments with arguments but with stigmatizing names designed to end debate. As the

According to George Clooney, Donald Trump is part of the Hollywood elite he has regularly criticized on the campaign trail and after taking office, calling him a “Hollywood elitist” because of the money he receives because of his previous film and television roles. In an interview with Canal+, the actor claimed that Trump benefits from his membership of the Screen Actors Guild and makes a substantial sum each year from it. “He collects $120,000 a year in his Screen Actors Guild pension fund. He is a Hollywood elitist,” he said. (Snip) In January, Clooney joined in the criticism of Trump

Although you may hold suspicions about your neighbor who feeds the local stray cats, new research has found no link between owning a feline and exhibiting psychotic symptoms. The University College London findings cast doubt on previous research, which suggested that people who grew up with cats are at a higher risk of mental illness. Cats are a primary host of Toxoplasma Gondii (T. Gondii), which is associated with mental health conditions like schizophrenia. That link led researchers to believe raising children in a household with cats could lead to later development of mental illness. “The message for cat owners is

WOW! John McCain is leading a vicious campaign against the Russian government since the November election. In January McCain suggested the Russian “hacking” of the election was an “act of war.” But it wasn’t that long ago that Senator McCain requested campaign donations from Russian officials. Wikileaks released documents this week following the sudden death of Russian UN ambassador Vitaly Churkin. There are several documents on McCain’s request for donations from the Russians. In 2008 the Russian mission released a letter on a fundraising attempt from John McCain. According to Reddit users John McCain illegally asked for campaign donations from

The Trump administration Wednesday revoked federal guidelines issued by former President Barack Obama that allowed public school students to use restrooms and other facilities corresponding to their gender identity. A document submitted to the Supreme Court by the Solicitor General´s office said that the Obama-era directive issued this past May did not "undergo any formal public process" or explain how the directive was "consistent with the express language of Title IX," the federal law outlawing sex discrimination in education and activities. "Congress, state legislatures, and local governments are in a position to adopt appropriate policies or laws addressing this issue,"

“Small price to pay to get the problem under control,” he says of amnesty for hundreds of thousands of young illegals, via the Daily Rushbo. Am I awake? I kid. This shouldn’t be shocking — if you’re a pragmatist, not a polemicist. Point one: Trump has been hinting at amnestizing DREAMers for months. Usually that takes the form of gooey pronouncements about having a big heart and how “great people that are here that have done a good job … should be far less worried” about deportation than criminals. Lately, though, the White House has showed its hand more clearly
