The widow of Democrat Elijah Cummings has announced she will run for the Baltimore seat he left vacant when he passed away last month aged 68. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings announced her candidacy Monday night, saying that her late husband 'wanted me to continue this fight.' Maya, who until now has been chair of the Maryland Democrat Party, said her husband had urged her to run for the seat as his health declined.

The fight to keep you in poverty, blaming whitey for all your problems, killing each other, living on welfare. Yeah, that's worth fighting for.

With these people it's always a "fight," always a "struggle." That outlook probably contributes greatly to the aggressive, obnoxious, in-your-face attitude they project. Maybe it wouldn't be such a "struggle" if they behaved like civilized people.

Doesn't Mrs. Cummings have some legal issues that haven't been resolved? I am really concerned about our justice/injustice system. Michael Savage speaks about "dark days ahead", and that will be true if no one ever gets punished for the crime, or like the cat lady who was charged with feeding stray cats and was scheduled to spend ten days in jail, only those without any pull or something to blackmail someone with, will get punished for even feeding cats. Obama's "Fundamental Transformation of America" has not been good.

What I have read about the widow Cummings is that she is responsible for the comfortable lifestyle that Elijah enjoyed in his later years. She is reputed to be even more corrupt than he was, and just as adept as scamming and grifting. She would fit right into the House at the moment.

ABC Split: Panelists Admit Nothing Changed,

After a Wednesday morning and lunch break on ABC that boasted Democrats were “serious” and U.S. Ambassador Bill Taylor was like Walter Cronkite, the post-hearing coverage led a few panelists to painstakingly concede that the hearings of Taylor and Assistant Secretary of State George Kent would not change anyone’s minds about impeachment. On the other hand, there was a hilarious back-and-forth with former Clinton official/chief anchor George Stephanopoulos and senior national correspondent Terry Moran to bemoan how more haven’t crossed over to call for Trump’s removal because they’re too blinded by Trump’s “version of American populism.”

For Democrats, the impeachment hearings that began Wednesday are a chance to make their case against President Trump publicly. For Republicans, they're just a continuation of a "witch hunt" that began with Trump's election.For bars and restaurants in the nation's capital, the hearings are something altogether different: An extended merchandising opportunity for impeachment cocktails with names like "Insane in the Ukraine" and "Barr-a-Lago" that play on a country at the heart of the inquiry, Trump's attorney general, William Barr, and his Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago.Some of the establishments have begun opening as early as 9:30 a.m., catering to patrons in a town where national politics are a favored pastime

Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan expressed the same shock at Wednesday’s impeachment inquiry hearing that no doubt many Americans are feeling as they watch this political theater play out. The first public hearing in the inquiry included witnesses William B. Taylor Jr., the former top diplomat in Ukraine, and George P. Kent, a senior State Department official, two men who were unable to provide anything of substance to the inquiry.Taylor even admitted multiple times during his testimony that he was merely there to pass along information he had heard secondhand. Jordan got a little tired of the rumors being passed off as evidence and he broke down the entire sham

So, barring any major “smoking guns” from here on out (or anything else severely changing the landscape of these impeachment proceedings), Nancy Pelosi will have quite a decision on her hands. She knows that any impeachment, to have any kind of historical validity, must have (as Jerry Nadler repeated said), broad, bipartisan support. Here are the Speaker’s choices: 1. Go for (in football terms) the “short, high percentage pass” and propose a resolution of censure. In this instance, it is widely believed that she would get her broad, bipartisan support.

Twenty years ago, I wrote my first book about why women can’t “have it all,” or at least all at once, despite what the culture tells them. (Hint: It’s because no one, male or female, can perform two full-time jobs simultaneously without the bottom falling out.)At the time, the so-called Mommy Wars were raging. Women everywhere who’d been sold a bill of goods by their feminist mothers and mentors were either lamenting the futility of being able to successfully work full-time outside the home while maintaining a healthy marriage and family life, or they were defending their choice to work full-time by insisting children do fine in round-the-clock substitute care.

Horowitz’s investigation on the bureau’s probe into the now debunked theory that Trump colluded with Russia in the 2016 presidential election will more than likely result in the declassification of documents — requested by senior Republican lawmakers for more than several years.

According to Stahl, (he) responded with this: “I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so when you write negative stories about me no one will believe you.”
