Marianne Williamson, a self-help guru and friend of Oprah Winfrey, set herself apart from her Democratic rivals during the second half of the debate on Thursday night, with her remarks going viral on social media. Williamson, a fringe contender for the White House, drew quizzical looks for her policy proposals, particularly her plans for her first act as president. "My first call is to the prime minister of New Zealand, who said that her goal is to make New Zealand the place where it's the best place in the world for a child to grow up, and I would tell her, 'Girlfriend, you are so wrong,

How this moron gets center stage over a qualified candidate like MT Gov. Steve Bullock is beyond me.

I watched a little bit of her supercilious performance. She is a lecturer, a zealot, not a presidential candidate. She has long been believed to be a quasi-religious kook. That gets my vote. Add political kook to that.

#1, Because liberals are emotionally-driven intellectual lightweights who, give the slightest and lightest breeze, are driven into a mindless frenzy. It used to be that liberals had a foundation to their beliefs. It was a flawed foundation that Ronald Reagan so eloquently nailed when he said 'It's not that liberals don't know anything... it's that they know so much that is not true'. But now days? Liberals think that sex is a personal choice and not a function of biology Liberals think marriage is between one thing and some other thing Liberals think that nobody has the right to say anything is wrong because... well... that would be WRONG. Liberals are bat 5H1T crazy.

Considering all the other “quirky remarks,” standing out is quite an accomplishment!

"She became the most-searched candidate during the debate, according to Google Trends." Of course, because she was a total unknown to most people before the debate. [I wished I could insert a "duh" emoji in this comment.]

She reminded me of Dick Shawn in the Mel Brooks movie The Producers singing Love Power. If Plugs gets the nomination I predict he will pick her as his VEEP. She is the most sniffable.

Marianne Williamson is probably the chief popularizer of the mega-satanic New Age quasi-bible entitled A Course in Miracles, a mishmash of totally redefined Christian terminology mixed with Hinduism and Jungian psychology. ACIM is essentially a cult inhabited by those who have rejected biblical Christianity. Sadly, many protestant and Catholic churches have allowed this sacrilegious text to be taught. If your church is one of those, get out. No real Christian would fall for this tripe. After receiving Ms. Williamson's A Return to Love as a birthday present in 1992, I read the book with a pen, making notes. By the time I had finished, I was physically ill with what felt like the flu. Her book gets my vote for the worst book ever written. Totally in the dark, this woman knows nothing about spiritual matters. Only anti-Christians and spiritual naifs like Oprah Winfrey could fall for ACIM, sweet evil masquerading as love. Williamson is about as far off spiritually as anyone could be.

On Thursday, Juan Guaido woke up and doused himself with a bucket of water. It was his shower. Like millions of Venezuelans, the man who dozens of countries recognize as the legitimate leader of his broken country can’t rely on the taps to run. “It’s one of the things I hate most,” the 35-year-old lawmaker said in an interview. “It’s a symbol of poverty, and during much of my life I had to do it.”
How to know if you're really a socialist 8 replies

Are you a socialist? Quick! Spit it out. Yes or no. No looking it up in Merriam-Webster. No phoning a friend. Socialism and you: yay or nay? Ever since I visited Cuba last November, I've realized this is a question I am ill-equipped to answer at gunpoint. I'm speaking metaphorically of course. The country has a notoriously low crime rate. Prior to my trip, socialism had evoked pleasant associations. Health care for all. Paid parental leave. A fair rental market. The kinds of things you'd have to be a bit weird to dislike. Now I also see an old woman queueing up in a supermarket with a ration book.
Key lawmaker wants U.S. to invade Venezuela to counter Cuba’s influence 7 replies

A U.S. senator and former presidential candidate said the U.S. military should invade Venezuela if Cuba does not immediately remove its security forces from the country, calling Cuba the Western Hemisphere’s version of Iran. In a Wall Street Journal op-ed posted online Wednesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican who leads the Senate Judiciary Committee, favorably compared potential military action in Venezuela to the U.S. invasion of Grenada in 1983, an operation that lasted about a week and led to the overthrow of the Caribbean nation’s military-run government.

Nobody likes a loser who can’t accept defeat. Hillary Clinton apparently can’t understand that American voters just didn’t like her. She’s still reenacting the 2016 presidential campaign in her mind and finding new ways to blame us all for her loss. Now, the failed Democratic nominee brought her blame game to new levels by complaining about being told she shouldn’t complain. She claims people are telling her to shut down her blame game tour because she is a woman and that nobody wants a male loser to shut his pie hole.
9 mind-blowing facts about Venezuela's economy 2 replies

The nation of Venezuela is in a state of crisis. Over the past few years, corruption and failed government policies have led Venezuela's economy to collapse, causing infrastructure to crumble and leaving millions of Venezuelans in poverty. The hardships faced by residents include catastrophic nationwide blackouts, hyperinflation, food shortages, and disease. The New York Times recently called the crisis the worst the world has ever seen outside of war. More than 3 million Venezuelans have fled the country since the crisis began, many of them walking out on foot.

I called my grandmother recently to check up on her. She lives in Caracas, Venezuela, and I was anxious to see how she was holding up. It was a Friday, the eve of another protest called for by interim President Juan Guaidó. Was it the sixth protest? Or the seventh? In the five months of heightened tension and crisis in Venezuela, I’ve lost count. My grandma, Dora Lopez, was in good spirits. She was in the middle of cooking pasta con caraotas, a working class dish made up of black beans and spaghetti often looked down upon by upper-class palates, but at my grandma’s, this dish is sacred.

Waiting in the Caracas airport, standing next to a pile of luggage that contained all her belongings, Mercedes Vázquez didn’t cry. She stared hard at the floor as she tried to process it all: That she was leaving Venezuela, her home for more than six decades, and didn’t know when she’d be back. That she had no concrete plan for when she arrived in Spain, the country where she was born in 1949 and that she fled as a child during the era of dictator Francisco Franco. She did not want to go.

Havana says it will extend the rationing of food and other products in the face of hardened US sanctions. The political and economic crisis in Venezuela is also partially to blame. The Cuban government will widen the wholesale rationing of staple food items and other basic products in the face of a grave supply crisis, Commerce Minister Betsy Diaz Velazquez said Friday. She said some items, such as chicken, would be limited to a fixed amount per purchase or per customer. Other items, including eggs, rice, beans and sausages, would only be available to buy with a ration card

Venezuela´s Supreme Court, which is closely allied with President Nicolas Maduro, said on Tuesday that it was launching a preliminary investigation into seven top opposition politicians. They are accused of treason, rebellion, and conspiracy in connection with the failed uprising of self-proclaimed interim President Joan Guaido. Amongst those targeted in the probe are prominent lawmakers Henry Ramos Allip and Luis German Florido. The case now goes to the attorney general and the Constituent Assembly, a parallel legislature set up by Maduro and his allies to cement his grip on power.

The project was meant to feed millions. In Delta Amacuro, a remote Venezuelan state on the Caribbean Sea, a Chinese construction giant struck a bold agreement with the late President Hugo Chávez. The state-run firm would build new bridges and roads, a food laboratory, and the largest rice-processing plant in Latin America. The 2010 pact, with China CAMC Engineering Co Ltd, would develop rice paddies twice the size of Manhattan and create jobs for the area’s 110,000 residents, according to a copy of the contract seen by Reuters.

House Armed Services Committee ranking member Rep.

Echoing the claims President Trump made last week, Rep. Thornberry, R., Texas, said he believes the Cubans are responsible for the continued support for disputed Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. "The important thing to remember about Venezuela is there are thousands of Cubans there that are basically controlling things,"

Is Kamala Harris telling the
truth about her Berkeley days?

Last night, Kamala Harris repeated her story about how, thanks to busing, she was able to be part of only the second class to integrate in the Berkeley public school system. She used this story to thrash Joe Biden, who offered anti-busing legislation as a U.S. Senator in the 1970s. Last year, I questioned Harris’ story: [I]s it. . .true that Harris was in only the second class to integrate at Berkeley public schools? Based on an examination of old yearbooks from Berkeley High, Freida Powers reports that classrooms at Berkeley High were already integrated in 1963, a year before Harris was born. I wondered whether Harris

Megan Rapinoe, star forward for the women’s U.S. national soccer team, seems to hate the world. She goes around with a scowl permanently etched into her weathered face. Though an outstanding soccer player, Megs has it in her head that she’s getting cheated, and that the cheater is Donald Trump. So she refused to go to the White House if the team wins the women’s World Cup. Trump then extended an invitation to the team whether they win or lose and of course Megan took it with ill grace. The girl has no graces, only grimaces.

A new bill would calculate potential costs of reparations — and by Yahoo Finance estimates, these could reach as high as $17.1 trillion. Last week, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held the first hearing in a decade on H.R. 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act. The bill was first introduced in 1989 by former Congressman John Conyers (D-MI). Conyers reintroduced the bill each year until his retirement in 2017 — and each year, the bill languished in Congress. The bill’s focus was not to pass reparations, but

A high-profile conservative leader called Thursday for the impeachment of Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. after he provided the crucial fifth vote in the Supreme Court decision heading off President Trump’s goal of including a question on citizenship on the 2020 census. Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union and husband of top Trump White House aide Mercedes Schlapp, said the ruling showed the chief justice was not the conservative-minded jurist he’d been touted to be, noting his previous decision essentially preserving Obamacare. “I’m for impeaching the chief justice for lying to all of us about his support

Yet another HUGE story that has been largely ignored by the mainstream media. Thankfully, OAN has been following the ongoing developments that outline how former Obama officials in conjunction with multiple contacts in Congress, have recently been caught working with Iranian officials to defeat the remarkably successful Trump administration’s actions in isolating and possibly hastening the collapse of the #1 sponsor of state terrorism that is the Iranian regime. Let that sink in. Former Obama officials and current members of Congress are working to support and maintain one of the worst human rights violators in the entire world.

2020 contender Kamala Harris came out swinging with a memorable performance in the second night of Democratic debates in Miami. It was Harris' confrontation with former Vice President Joe Biden where she pressured to get him on the record on his past support of segregation-endorsing Democrats and as well as his past stance against busing to desegregate public schools, that left a mark on would-be voters' minds. In an interview with "CBS This Morning" Friday, Harris responded to criticism from Biden's camp that the contentious moment was a "low blow." "It was about just speaking truth and as I've said
