For Democrats, the warning shots are coming thick and fast. “More than half of Americans don’t think Donald Trump is fit to serve as president, yet he has a clear path to winning reelection,” Doug Sosnik, who served as President Bill Clinton’s political director, wrote in the Washington Post last week. “Are Democrats Headed for a McGovern Redux?” Alan Greenblatt asked in Politico on Oct. 9. On the same day, a New York Magazine headline declared: “No One Should Rule Out a Trump Re-election in 2020.” What can Democrats do? A Pew Research Center survey released earlier this month documented the growth of
Don´t wste your time on this one. Starts off explaining that more middle class shites are identifying with race and thus rebublicans since more than half now vote rebublican. But not a word about race being an issue since blacks vote for and have for generations Democrats 95% of the time. So a majority of whites voting rebublican is racist while almost every black that votes in this country for demcrats has nothing to do with race. Usual race baiting Slime article.
I stopped reading when the jist is that whites are becoming republicans because they are racist and anti-immigrant.
The truth is that whites are more likely to become republican as a consequence of constantly being called racist, biggotted sexist homophobes because everything that they say and do is a micro-aggression, a demonstration of white privledge, they dont like 30 year old men using the little girls room and they donr believe that taco Tuesday is cultural appropriation.
Liberals dont get that the constant badgering, lecturing and name calling is back firing.
These days I´ll, for the sake of argument concede that Im a racist, biggotted sexist if the lib will kindly explain how my facts are incorrect.
They´re really desperate to make everything about race. If you want to know what Trump is about and what the Tea Party is about go back and listen to Rick Santelli´s rant from 2009. He said Washington DC is punishing good behavior and rewarding bad behavior.
Whether you´re talking about bank bailouts or Harvey Weinstein or illegal aliens or Black Lives Matter or Antifa, or student loans, it´s always the same. Liberals are always punishing honest, hard-working, frugal, law-abiding people and rewarding lazy, dishonest, spendthrifts and criminals.
The problem the dems face is that the hard Left wing of their party is camped out to the left of their median dem. This is where Bernie dragged the party and with Hillary´s embarrassing loss, where the party is drifting.
Further, neatly breaking the Country into apparently equal blocks of dems and Republicans makes it seem like the people are split. But that´s not correct. Less people are identifying dem and more Independent or Republican. So the balance is NOT even and if there is a center point of the Country, it has shifted right, leaving the loudest liberal voices in a Leftern desert away from most of the Country.
As others have noted, the bias of the article is stunning. I have no problems with Blacks just because they are Black. If they think they are entitled to free stuff and a life without working, they are nuts. They are also not entitled to behave as thugs.
I also have no problem with immigrants here LEGALLY. ILLEGAL immigrants should be blocked from entry. Those here should be reviewed and those committing crimes here should be booted out. Others MIGHT be considered for citizenship with strict requirements. That offer does NOT apply to others coming here in the future.
I agree with the Title, dems are playing stupid games.
Net neutrality is dead. This is a good thing. Even if there were no other compelling arguments in favor of killing net neutrality (though there are), the end of net neutrality would be welcome because it will frustrate the hopes of the largest group temper tantrum thrown by non-toddlers in recent American history. Has this country ever seen a more simperingly childish mob than the one responsible for the outcry over this boring prudential question concerning the allocation of hertz? Has so much canned emotion ever been spilled over so bland and technocratic and uniquely prudential an issue?
How sad is it that the party that brought us John F. Kennedy´s tax cuts, economic growth and higher wages is now the party that puts redistribution ahead of prosperity. Not a single House Democrat on November 16 or Senate Democrat on December 2 voted for their version of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Not one.Some argue that the Trump tax cut will increase the deficit, but they should listen to the wisdom of JFK in 1962, when he, too, was battling a large deficit. President Kennedy declared at the New York Economic Club that "it is a paradoxical truth
After a grueling and contentious special election campaign for Senate that gained unprecedented national attention, Democrat Doug Jones has emerged as the winner in Alabama by less than one point. In a state where President Donald Trump won by as much as 28 points one year ago, Jones gained approximately 49.6 percent of the vote, while Republican Roy Moore received 48.7 percent. The lion’s share of Jones’ momentum of course came from the accusations in recent months that Roy Moore sexual harassed and assaulted multiple teenage women. Given this, the election must be seen much more as a rejection of Roy Moore personally
Doug Jones’ victory over scandal-plagued Republican Roy Moore in Alabama’s Senate special election delivered a gut punch to Donald Trump, putting the president’s legislative agenda -- and the GOP’s already tenuous grip on the upper chamber -- in jeopardy. Once Jones is seated early next year, Republicans will hold just a perilous 51-49 majority. And while Democrats’ path is narrow, their upset victory in Alabama gives them a shot at gaining control in 2018. But Republicans who opposed Moore have characterized the loss as a longer-term gain for the party. In a sign of the cockeyed dynamics of the race, some
CNN on Monday walked back an “exposé” on Attorney General Jeff Sessions that turns out to have exposed nothing, except maybe the network’s own bias.The original report back in May blared that Sessions hadn’t listed those two meetings with Russia’s ambassador on his FBI disclosure forms prior to his Senate confirmation hearings. Now CNN admits that the FBI told Sessions not to list any of his dozens of meetings with other countries’ diplomats as part of his senatorial duties. To be fair, the May story did note the Sessions camp’s claims about the FBI’s guidelines. But it also quoted a Beltway
Regardless of outcome, the high-stakes and volatile Alabama Senate special election Tuesday will likely ripple through the 2018 midterm elections and have a significant impact on the race for the Senate majority. For Democrats, the stakes are clear: If Doug Jones pulls off an upset in deep-red Alabama, it will mark a clean sweep of statewide elections for the party this year. But more importantly, claiming the seat would swing a Senate map tilted heavily in Republicans’ favor just slightly more in the other direction, making the difficult task of winning back the Senate next year slightly more achievable -- though
Rooms full of racket and non-stop commotion drive a person nuts. You want to clap hands over your ears and flee. Like now — from the rowdiness of what Reader’s Digest used to call — still may for aught I know — “Life in These United States.” If the American noise level seems unlikely to diminish any time soon, the moment is surely at hand to point out a few evidences of the country’s comparative health and short-term prospects. Accordingly: The tax bill — known to Bernie Sanders as “one of the greatest robberies, criminal activities if you will” — in modern U.S.
Amid a stream of revelations, arrests, and plea bargains from Robert Mueller’s investigation of Donald Trump campaign’s connections with Russia, liberals are becoming giddy at the prospect of impeaching the president. “Can Democrats finally start talking about impeachment, Nancy Pelosi?” Errol Louis asked in a column for CNN, referring to the House minority leader. On The View, Joy Behar bubbled with delight when she was handed the news, now revealed to be inaccurate, that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was willing to testify that then-candidate Trump had instructed him to make contact with the Russians. (The report was corrected
Last night, while losing to the GOP in the Great Tax Bill Debate of 2017, Senate Democrats eked out a small victory. They persuaded a handful of Senate Republicans to join them to strip from the GOP tax bill a provision characterized as an unjustified earmark for Michigan’s conservative Hillsdale College, a school that famously declines to accept federal funds. As the Washington Post reports: Four Republicans joined all  Senate Democrats in voting to adopt [Sen. Jeff] Merkley’s amendment [to strip the provision]. They were Sens. Deb Fischer of Nebraska, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and John Kennedy of
It was as inevitable as, well, death and taxes that the Democrats would react to the Senate tax reform bill with public lamentation, rending of garments, and portentous declarations about the death of the Republic. It was no surprise, then, that Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) charged the Republicans with “tearing down our democracy” or that Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) also accused them of “undermining democracy.” In reality, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is among the best pieces of legislation produced by either house of Congress in decades, not least because it eliminates the individual mandate and medical expense taxes.
America is in the midst of a reckoning about sexual misconduct, as a steady stream of men in the public eye have resigned or been fired from their jobs over sexual harassment and assault allegations. Politicians have been no exception, with allegations coming against Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore for allegedly harassing and assaulting teenagers — but also against Democratic members of Congress: Sen. Al Franken (Minn.) and Rep. John Conyers (Mich.). As has become glaringly obvious, while the allegations against Moore are categorically worse than anything Franken or Conyers is accused of, harassment has no particular political affiliation.
The president of the United States wakes up some mornings seemingly determined to convince as many people as possible that he’s unsuited to high office. Fortunately for him, he has a Twitter account allowing him to act on this impulse immediately and without any filter. On Wednesday, Trump retweeted three videos from an apparatchik of an extremist party in Britain purporting to show acts of violence by Muslims. One of them is reportedly fake — it’s not clear the perpetrator is a Muslim. He then defended himself in a tweet to UK Prime Minister Theresa May — or, at least, he tried.
A professor at Boston University has proclaimed Christmas carol favorite “Jingle Bells” to be a “racist song” and is urging people to shun the jaunty tune. Kyna Hamill, a theater history professor at Boston University, recently told the Boston Globe that the venerable Christmas song has a “secret” racist past that has been “systematically” hidden from Americans as they celebrate the Christmas season. “The history of the song has remained hidden behind its local and season affection,” Hamill told the paper. She continued saying the song’s “blackface and racist origins have been subtly and systematically removed from its history.” (Tweet/Video) Hamill
Conventional wisdom is that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is asleep at the wheel – from recusing himself unnecessarily from the Trump-Russia collusion investigation to doing nothing about the politicization and weaponization of the Department of Justice. He also gave free rein to his deputy A.G., Rod Rosenstein, who is in turn allowing Special Counsel Robert Mueller unlimited time, money, and jurisdiction to investigate President Trump´s entire life. Last summer, Trump expressed disappointment in Sessions, calling him "beleaguered," wondering why Sessions wasn´t looking into Hillary Clinton´s emails and true election chicanery. Rudy Giuliani was floated as a possible replacement. Was Trump truly
Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder threatened Republicans in Congress against removing Special Counsel Robert Mueller the day after GOP congressmen grilled Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein over Mueller stacking his team of Trump investigators with Hillary Clinton donors and lawyers. Holder issued his threat in a tweet Wednesday morning. Eric Holder, image via screengrab. “Speaking on behalf of the vast majority of the American people, Republicans in Congress be forewarned:any attempt to remove Bob Mueller will not be tolerated.These are BS attacks on him/his staff that are blatantly political-designed to hide the real wrongdoing. Country not party”
Female actresses attending this year’s Golden Globes ceremony are reportedly planning to wear only black in protest of the widening sexual abuse scandal that has engulfed Hollywood this year.According to E! News, the plan originally started with just a small group of women but gradually grew as other women wished to express solidarity. “So all of the female actresses and attendees, or most of them at least, are standing in solidarity together in a form of protest,” said ceremony host Jackie Oshry on The Morning Breath radio show. “They’re all going to be wearing black, obviously to protest the injustices
Alabama is one of the most reliably Republican states in the country. The last time a Democrat was elected was in 1992, and no Democrat has won more than 40 percent of the vote in a Senate race there since 1996. The closest election in recent memory was in 2002, when Jeff Sessions won re-election by a razor-thin margin of 19 points. Sen. Richard Shelby has won his last three elections by 35 points, 30 points and 28 points, respectively. So it takes a special kind of stupid to pick a candidate who can lose to a Democrat in Alabama.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders trolled April Ryan with a homemade pecan pie on Wednesday evening and it was glorious. (Photos) The Gateway Pundit’s Kristinn Taylor previously reported, April Ryan, White House reporter for American Urban Radio networks and CNN analyst, demanded President Donald Trump’s Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders provide proof she baked a pie she tweeted a photo of on Thanksgiving Day. April Ryan demanded, “Show it to us on the table with folks eating it and a pic of you cooking it.” So that’s exactly what fearless warrior Sarah Sanders did Wednesday evening! Sarah Sanders
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) is proposing a new motto for the city that takes aim at President Trump. Emanuel, who served as chief of staff under former President Barack Obama, told Stephen Colbert that he has declared Chicago a “Trump-free zone” and joked that its new motto is “A city he’ll never sleep in.” “We don’t want him,” Emanuel said on “The Late Show” Wednesday night. Emanuel told Colbert that multiple Chicago initiatives, such as public scholarships available to recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration program and environmental regulations, do not line up with the
Scandal: For 18 months, the FBI has been fixated on determining whether President Trump worked with Russia to influence the 2016 election. But explosive text exchanges between top FBI agents suggest it should be looking in the mirror. The text messages sent between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, which became public on Wednesday, provide a rare and illuminating window into just how rabidly partisan putatively nonpartisan law enforcement officials can be. In the exchanges, they called Trump an "idiot," a "loathsome human," an "enormous do-che," and said "this man cannot be president." When not berating Trump, they were praising Hillary Clinton. In one
Santa Claus, Christmas trees and the colors red and green are examples of inappropriate “religious iconography” during the holiday season, according to a paper distributed during a “Respecting Religious Diversity” event at the University of Minnesota."Jewish Hanukkah" is targeted, too, with menorahs and the colors blue and white also described as being "not appropriate." “Consider neutral-themed parties such as a ‘winter celebration,’” the handout read. “Decorations, music, and food should be general and not specific to any one religion.” It was part of a Dean’s Dialogues “Religious Diversity and Holidays” event within the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource
Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin has requested UN Peacekeeping Forces to the City of Chicago to cut down on violence in the Windy City. Boykin says peacekeeping forces are needed to fight the “quiet genocide” in the streets of Chicago. The joys of liberalism: 603 people have been shot and killed in Chicago so far this year. 3,454 people have been shot. There have been 652 homicides in Chicago so far this year. CBS Chicago reported: Some politicians in the past have recommended deploying the National Guard to help Chicago quell gun violence, but Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin went
Spirits were high inside the House chamber on Thursday, November 16, when, in the early afternoon, the gavel fell and a measure to rewrite the American tax code passed on a partisan tally of 227 to 205. As the deciding votes were cast—recorded in green on the black digital scoreboard suspended above the floor—the speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, threw his head back and slammed his hands together. Soon he was engulfed in a sea of dark suits, every Republican lawmaker wanting to slap him on the shoulder and be a part of his moment. Ryan was the man of
First, as the week began, came news of an attempted Islamic terrorist attack at New York’s Port Authority Bus Terminal…and next came everything we needed to know about the Mainstream News Media, which has once again, or finally become a punch line and a laughingstock. We need to exclude Fox News from that leftist cabal. Only Fox News still gives it mostly straight up, mostly fair and balanced. That same evening, visiting family when the Network News just came on, my son said, “Dad, which do you want first, the anti-cop story, the anti-Israel story, or the anti-Trump story?” That was ABC,
