Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) made it clear he has no intention to stop reminding people that President Trump is bigoted against Muslims. The congressman spoke with radio host and Mediaite contributor Dean Obeidallah, where they discussed the fallout from the recent bomb attack against a mosque in Minnesota. The Trump Administration has been noticeably reluctant to comment about the matter, and Gallego slammed the president for marginalizing Muslims around the country with his rhetoric instead of promising to protect them as citizens. “It’s disappointing that Trump doesn’t show any leadership – doesn’t even do attempt to do it on his own –
Comments: Who is this blue eyed clod playing the oppressed minority card? We just have to admit Rep. Ruben Gallego is an absolute fool.
Doorknob HUssein was a Racist against Whites. ....in fact, he was a Racist against Blacks too! 100s of blacks that could be his son killed/murdered by other Blacks that could be his son every year in Chicago and he said and did NOTHING!
At the moment nobody knows who the perpetrator(s) are who put the device in the Minnesota mosque. For all anyone knows it could be a Muslim "false flag" incident designed to beat the phony Islamophobia drum. That has happened before. Why should President Trump comment on what is still an unsolved police matter?
I don´t think I´m racist or Islamophobic, however, I am distressed that a sizable percentage of American Muslims support Sharia Law and prefer it and would prefer to be governed by it than by American law. Then there is the disturbing lack of assimilation by American Muslims. Why allow anyone to immigrate to our country who has no intention of assimilating? Refusing to assimilate is divisive and will damage the societal fabric that holds the nation together.
Just like every other American, Representative Gallego is entitled to his own personal opinion. In this case, it is my opinion that
* Gallego is absolutely wrong * is inappropriately attempting to cite racial motives in a situation that does not involve race * has made comments that indicate to me that he is a bigot * is attempting to get exposure among those who are also bigots, especially the bigots in his district.
#10, you shouldn´t ´admit´ you´re prejudiced, like there´s something wrong with it; I´d say I´m proud to be prejudiced against any organization that advocates extermination of Jews and Christians or that practices genital mutilation of little girls.
Just as I´m proud to be the mortal enemy of both domestic and foreign enemies of the constitution (which includes both leftards and mooslimes).
To elaborate on #7´s point. I remember barack talking about how America is the great melting pot made great by all of its immigrants. Then I suspect someone explained to him that the melting pot metaphor meant assimilating and becoming Americans and he stopped saying that phrase. Barack is such and idiot.
Given that the MSM has dropped the MN mosque bombing story I think the perp was either faking a hate crime or screwed up while building a bomb to be used elsewhere. Wouldn´t be the first time that happened in MN.
Yesterday I read an article that said light colored hair was racist too. Gallego must be positioning himself for higher office in the grand Dem tradition of playing the racist card, over and over and over.
This moron doesnt (and probably never will) understand the distinction between race and religion. As a resident of Arizona I am continually embarrassed by the illiterate and substandard representation we have saddled ourselves with. Suffice to say if the muslims he loves so much take over he will be one of the first to be decapitated.
SINGAPORE: US Pacific Fleet Commander Admiral Scott Swift said US Marine Corps divers have uncovered remains in sealed compartments of the USS John S McCain, following the collision between the US warship and an oil tanker in Singapore´s waters on Monday (Aug 21) that left 10 sailors missing and another five injured. Speaking at a news conference at Changi Naval Base on Tuesday evening, Adm Swift said it is too early to tell how many bodies were found in the damaged US Navy destroyer. "We have discovered other bodies during the diving on McCain today, but it’s premature to say how many
To hear the media call it, President Trump has retreated from his original stance on Afghanistan in his pivotal new policy speech and allowed the swamp to take him down, finally adapting himself to the ways of Washington. Here´s a headline from the New York Times: Angry Trump Grilled His Generals About Troop Increase, Then Gave In His whole new strategy is supposedly a continuation of the past policies of the Obama and Bush administrations, baby steps, or else a cave-in to what his generals want. There was an excessive focus on 4,000 troops which is an uncertain number Trump hasn´t explicitly
Hypocrisy – thy name is communist China. During the Cold War, Chinese communists taunted the U.S.A. with cries of imperialism. Our large multinational corporations were denounced for greedily exploiting the Third World. Our capitalist system was mocked as corrupt and criminal. The Maoist version of communism was held up to the world as the panacea. My, have times changed. China’s incredible economic growth is to be admired. But with the growth comes the concurrent effects of transnational Chinese criminal activity. Much of the proceeds that fuel the Chinese colossus are tainted and disguised. Money-laundering is hiding the proceeds of any form of illicit
Remember Jonathan Gruber? The loathesome, contemptuous architect of Obamacare has been caught out for corruption in a fraudulent billing scheme by Vermont´s Attorney General. According to the Daily Caller, Gruber sent out double invoices and invoices for work that was never done in a disgusting scheme to foist single-payer insurance onto Vermont a couple years earlier. The program was so bad its leftwing governor scrapped it as something that would never work. The Daily Caller writes: Donovan, the attorney general and still another Democrat, said his office determined that Gruber did, in fact, violate the Vermont Civil False Claims Act,
Hector Rodriguez Sr., his wife and his son fled Venezuela on July 16, 2016, seeking political asylum in the United States. It offered a comforting safety net from the chaotic unrest in their home country. They spent the first 20 days in Miami, all the while looking at other places to live. Most importantly, they wanted to find a good high school to allow Hector Jr. to nurture his skills as a gifted swimmer. They picked Central Florida, specifically Winter Park High School, with that purpose in mind. Today, in this land of hope and dreams, the Rodriguez family still
CARACAS, Venezuela — President Nicolas Maduro has angrily blasted Venezuela’s classical music maestro Gustavo Dudamel, accusing his one-time supporter of being duped into criticizing the government that has for years been one of his biggest promoters. “I hope God forgives you,” Maduro said in a televised appearance on Friday, swiping at the Venezuelan-born conductor for roving around Madrid and Los Angeles while his compatriots build a revolution that he once helped glamorize. “Welcome to politics, Gustavo Dudamel. But act with ethics, and don’t let yourself be deceived into attacking the architects of this beautiful movement of young boys and girls,” the socialist
Katie Couric has described how two of her producers were hit by a ´urine bomb´ while she was covering the protests in Charlottesville last week. The broadcast journalist, 60, was filming the violent Virginia rally as part of a six-hour documentary series she is working on for National Geographic. Couric wrote an op-ed that was published Friday by the outlet as a way for her to ´reflect on her experiences´. In the op-ed titled ´Being in Charlottesville Broke My Heart. It Also Filled Me With Hope´, Couric said two of her producers were splashed with a mixture of mud and
BANYUWANGI, Indonesia: If there’s a place on Earth that could be snapshot of another planet from distant space, this is it. With its wickedly steaming cyan lake, pulsing exhausts of burning sulphur and jagged peaks, Ijen Crater in East Java is entirely otherworldly. During the night, a deep and malevolent energy burns the noxious gas in the crater, creating what locals call “blue fire”. Hundreds of tourists form a snaking line of light as they traverse slippery makeshift paths deep down into the belly of this volcanic cavity.
“Both my husband and I were youths in Mao Zedong’s era,” says 63-year-old Wang Aiying. “We abided by the Party’s words, answered the Party’s call of duty and supported the Party’s policy.” Among other things, that meant adhering to the one-child ruling, an act of obedience that would, in 2015, leave Wang in deep despair. After her son died, she became a shidu fumu, one of a growing number of bereaved Chinese entering their twilight years without the emotional and financial support of a child. Her son, Chang Jia, was nearly not born at all. In 1980, having been pregnant for
Ahead of a Friday Camp David meeting at which President Trump is expected to discuss the long-awaited way forward in Afghanistan with his team, the Taliban issued an open letter to Trump telling him that if the U.S. military hasn´t won the peace so far "you shall never be able to win it with mercenaries, notorious contractor firms and immoral stooges." Erik Prince, the founder of the former Blackwater security firm, has been lobbying heavily for a plan to shift reliance on the Afghanistan fight to private contractors. Prince is Education Secretary Betsy De Vos´ brother. Friday's meeting will include Secretary of State
An Australian woman experienced her third European terrorist attack in just three months, after being caught up in Thursday’s horrific events in Barcelona. Julia Monaco was in London during the deadly London Bridge attack and in Paris when an assailant claiming to be a ‘soldier’ of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) attacked a police officer with a hammer. Monaco, who only left Australia three months ago, had her narrowest escape Thursday when a van rammed into a crowd on Las Ramblas, killing 14 people and injuring more than 100. The 26-year-old Melbourne woman hid in a shopping mall in Placa de Catalunya during
Police were forced to intervene as scuffles broke out between far-right anti-Islam protesters and participants of a counter demonstration in Barcelona, following Thursday’s terrorist attack in the city. Anti-fascist and far-right groups organized simultaneous protests in Barcelona just one day after a terrorist attack claimed the lives of 14 people and injured 100 more. The Spanish far-right group La Falange assembled close to the La Boquería marketplace in the city center, just 500 meters from where a van plowed into a crowd of pedestrians on Thursday. The Spanish far-right group La Falange assembled close to the La Boquería marketplace in the city
Two members of the Kennedy family were arrested for disorderly conduct near the family’s famed compound on Cape Cod, according to police. Max Kennedy, the 52-year-old son of Robert F. Kennedy, was taken into custody for disorderly conduct and a noise violation around 1 a.m. Sunday morning after reports of loud partying, Barnstable Police told the Boston Herald. His daughter Caroline, a 22-year-old California resident, was also arrested at a home a short walk from the main Kennedy compound. (Snip) The arrests come after a brush with the law for another of RFK’s grandchildren, Conor Kennedy, who
“There must always” be a flow low-skilled immigration to the United States, no matter its impact on American workers, according to Republican establishment figure Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ). Flake slammed the idea of potentially cutting legal immigration levels in half to raise the wages of American workers and end the current low-skilled oriented system to make only admit immigrants based on their skills and merit in a New York Times op-ed. Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA) introduced the specific plan, known as the “RAISE Act.” President Donald Trump endorsed the plan and said the legislation “will reduce poverty, increase
Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal hoped for the assassination of President Trump in a Facebook comment on Thursday then deleted it in a panic. She even acknowledged she would get a visit from the Secret Service for her comment. (Photo) Maria Chappelle-Nadal’s Facebook comment was so egregious that even ABC News reported on the story. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports: Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, posted a comment in a Facebook conversation Thursday morning saying she hoped President Donald Trump will be assassinated. The comment was removed but Chappelle-Nadal confirmed to the Post-Dispatch that she had written it in
The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Sunday gave a strong endorsement to the movement for removing monuments to leaders of the Confederacy and called for the electoral college to be abolished. Speaking at the Islamic Center of Southern California, Jackson blamed the electoral college system, giving disproportionate influence to less populated states, for the 2000 and 2016 loss of Democratic presidential candidates Al Gore and Hillary Clinton despite their winning the popular vote. “Today we are looking at a structural problem,” Jackson said. “These monuments must go. Calling for the audience to repeat, he said, “Say the monuments and the flags
WASHINGTON — The Secret Service can no longer pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission – in large part due to the sheer size of President Trump´s family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast. Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex´´ Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year. The agency has faced a crushing workload since the height of the contentious election season, and it
Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are among a set of White House aides pushing President Trump to allow illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to stay, in an effort to get Democrats to fund the president´s border wall. McClatchy reported that the group of White House officials have suggested using so-called ´Dreamers´ as a bargaining chip, in order to check off some of the president´s campaign promises on immigration, including the wall, additional detention facilities, an E-verify system for employers and cuts to legal immigration. However, such a move would break another campaign promise, as candidate Donald Trump had pledged
Thanks to Monday´s solar eclipse, disastrous traffic jams have been taking over the country these last few days. And as folks leave the first coast-to-coast solar eclipse since 1918, the U.S. Department of Transportation estimated that nearly two-thirds of the nation´s resident live withing a day´s drive of the path of totality. And with Oregon being the first to see the eclipse, it and neighboring state Washington are experiencing the worst bouts of the traffic jams. ´This is the biggest transportation event that has ever hit Oregon,´ Dave Thompson, a spokesman for the Oregon Department of Transportation told AP.

A Texas college campus removed four statues of prominent Confederate figures in an overnight sweep, according to reports. The statues of Gen. Robert E. Lee, Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston, Confederate Postmaster General John H. Reagan and former Texas Gov. James Stephen Hogg were each taken down from the campus’ Main Mall in an operation beginning just before midnight and continuing through the early morning, KSAT 12 reported. “Last week, the horrific displays of hatred at the University of Virginia and in Charlottesville shocked and saddened the nation,” University of Texas President Greg Fenves said in a statement. “These events make
The eclipse that occurred over Chicago led thousands to the beaches and streets, where they gasped and cried out as the sun partially disappeared. For WGN meteorologist Tom Skilling, it was an especially awe-inspiring event. The famed meteorologist hugged and high-fived people around him and wept as the eclipse occurred Monday afternoon. "Oh, my word," Skilling said. "Wow. This is amazing. What do you think of this, this?" At another point, he told viewers, "I´ll get my act together, guys." His voice cracking, Skilling apologized for his tears. Skilling´s heartfelt reaction earned him praise from fans:
As the face of CNN, Anderson Cooper makes a very good living as wealthy, privileged white man casting judgments of affiliation upon his political enemies. This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro-America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know. As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest “old money” families in American history, Cooper is a direct descendant of big time slave owners. Cooper’s great-great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned several plantations,
President Trump’s “America First” base was the biggest loser of Trump’s speech on Afghanistan Monday night, and many quickly expressed their disappointment at the business-as-usual address from the president who had once promised to limit American intervention abroad and focus on nation-building at home. Trump’s speech, in which he pledged to increase the number of troops in the 16-year-war, was the first since the departure of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and confirmed the fears of many on the right that without a strong nationalist voice in the West Wing, the President would revert to the same old fare that Americans had
Students at Howard University, a top-rated historically black college in Washington D.C., took to social media to express their anger over a group of white high school girls wearing pro-Trump clothing who visited the campus on Saturday. Some tweets referring to their visit also suggested the white high school girls should be beaten up. One of the high school guests, in a social media post of her own, said they were simply visiting the school’s cafeteria to get food as part of a larger tour of the nation’s capital, and faced a barrage of insults and aggressive acts, including having
