  • Jason Chaffetz On Sexual Assault: Some Women 'Might Want To Take Advantage And Throw An Allegation'
    by John Amato on November 22, 2017 at 1:00 am

    Does Chaffetz have anything to worry about? I mean, that's what some people are saying. I kid, I kid. During Fox News' Outnumbered Overdrive, the discussion of sexual assault was prevalent and after the news of Charlie Rose's firing, Melissa Francis admitted that so much of it started on Fox News and she said, "This is everywhere" and institutions that passed judgement on them was headed for it also. I don't share her opinion outside of the Fox News sexual harassment scandals did get the ball rolling on this issue because she took an adversarial approach when her network was drenched in sexual assault. Marie Harf said that the issue of sexual assault is not a partisan one and I think we can all agree on that. I also believe we look at it by a case-by-case basis. Then Francis asked Jason a very odd question. She asked, "Do you feel like this is a witch hunt? I mean, a lot of men out there are worried that even if they didn't do anything, that women are going to come after them. Is […]

  • Alabama GOP Is Tribal: 'They're Voting Against Clintons And Obamas'
    by Susie Madrak on November 22, 2017 at 12:00 am

    "Tribalism" is the new word on Morning Joe, and they're flogging it ad infinitum. But there was a useful discussion about the part it plays in the Alabama senate race between Doug Jones and Roy Moore. "Willie, you can see this tribalism over the past couple of decades and see that the impact is that it gets people voting against a candidate instead of for a candidate and you see that in these Republican events, whether it's in California where John McCain was booed by a California Republican audience or in South Florida this past weekend with the names of George W. Bush and George Herbert Walker Bush once again booed by South Florida Republicans," Scarborough said. "Because they're not voting for people. They're just voting against the Clintons, voting against the Obamas." Willie Geist agreed. "This is tribalism to the extreme. This is talking about protecting a guy that's been accused by a number of women, underage women, sexual contact with them or harassment in some way," he said. […]

  • Hey Tom Steyer, You Won't Impeach Trump Without A Democratic House
    by Steve M. on November 21, 2017 at 11:00 pm

    Tom Steyer is throwing good money after bad: Tom Steyer, the billionaire environmentalist and Democratic mega donor, said he’s heading to the heart of New York City for the next step of his $20 million ad campaign urging the impeachment of President Donald Trump. “We’re putting a couple of large billboards in Times Square calling for the impeachment of the president,” Steyer said Monday in an interview. “We legitimately feel that this is the huge issue in front of the American people that no one is standing up for what the overwhelming number of Americans think.”read mor […]

  • Trump Wants Accused Child Molester For His Tax Plan Vote
    by Susie Madrak on November 21, 2017 at 10:14 pm

    To those liberals who say Al Franken should resign for alleged butt grabbing, let's take it down to the basics. We are fighting people who are willing to circle the wagons and support a child molester to get enough votes to pass their horrendous tax-theft bill. Under those circumstances, it's a positive good to keep Al Franken in the Senate, where he will vote for many urgent things that will help ordinary Americans. Speaking of, here's the accused rapist from the Oval Office, sticking up for the accused child molester and attacking Doug Jones, his opponent, during a news gaggle today: TRUMP: "I can tell you one thing for sure. We don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat. Jones, I've looked at his record. It's terrible on crime. It's terrible on the border. It's terrible on the military. I can tell you for a fact we do not need somebody that's going to be bad on crime, bad on borders, bad with the military, bad for the Second Amendment. (Editor's note: Jones was the federal […]

  • Doug Jones' New Ad Uses Ivanka Trump's Words
    by Scarce on November 21, 2017 at 9:42 pm

    Ivanka Trump's recent quote that "There's a special place in hell for people who prey on children" is used effectively in a new Doug Jones ad. Her father though would seem to disagree, as he's just endorsed Roy Moore for U.S. Senate. Or perhaps he just thinks Alabama is also a special place and that Roy Moore really is representative of the state's moral dysfunction. Whatever the case, sexual predators stick together. Source: NY Mag A new ad for Doug Jones, the Democratic candidate for Senate in Alabama, quotes Ivanka Trump and two Republican lawmakers denouncing Roy Moore, his Republican opponent, who has been accused of sexual misconduct involving several teenage girls. The ad features Ivanka Trump, who said, “There’s a special place in hell for people who prey on children and I have no reason to doubt the victims’ accounts.” It also quotes Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who formerly occupied the seat Moore and Jones are vying for, and Republican Alabama […]

  • Even Andrea Mitchell Admits: GOP Is Lying About Tax Scam
    by Frances Langum on November 21, 2017 at 9:00 pm

    It's getting really bad for the Republican Party when even Andrea Mitchell has to call you liars on the air. On "Morning Joe" this morning they discussed the GOP Tax Scam, and no one on the panel thought its passage was going to do the Republican Party any political favors. Even Mrs. Greenspan. Former Ted Cruz (yeah) adviser Rick Tyler noted that unless you are going to institute wage and price controls, there is no way any tax bill is going to fulfill the Republican claim (lie) that this tax cut for businesses will raise wages. "I don't think right-wing social engineering is any better than left-wing social engineering and I think the Republicans have so oversold what this tax bill is gonna...what's going to happen." Joe Scarborough then compared the Tax bill process to the Health Care bill process, and asked Andrea Mitchell: "Have you seen a sloppier legislative year than this year by the Republicans and how they hurriedly drafted a health care bill that was going to change […]

  • Flip Benham Actually Defends Pedophilia To Excuse Roy Moore
    by John Amato on November 21, 2017 at 6:16 pm

    Anti-LGBT and abortion activist Flip Benham came up with the most sickening excuses for Moore's sexual desires for underage girls on an Alabama radio program on Monday. Benham is an Evangelical Christian minister from North Carolina who is part of Operation Rescue and Operation Save America. All I can say is keep your underage daughters away from this man. Benham was one of the speakers at Moore's Faith Leaders Press Conference that was organized last Friday by Janet Porter of Faith2 Action. On Monday, he was interviewed by Alabama radio hosts Matt Murphy and Andrea Lindenberg on their “Matt & Aunie” show about the press conference, and as Kyle Mantyla writes,"To say that the interview was a debacle would be an understatement." This moron claimed that back in 1970's, after Moore returned from Vietnam and went to law school, all age-appropriate and legal-to-seduce ladies were already married so he had to dip into the pedophilia school of mor […]

  • Breitbart Editor-in-chief: Women Changed 'Rape' To Mean 'Any Sex That The Woman Ends Up Regretting'
    by David on November 21, 2017 at 5:09 pm

    Alex Marlow, the editor-in-chief of Breitbart News, argued on Tuesday that women had changed the definition of the word "rape" to mean "any sex that the women ends up regretting." Marlow made the remarks during an interview on SiriusXM Patriot's Breitbart News Daily that was obtained by Media Matters. "Rape used to have a narrow definition. Rape used to have a definition where it was -- it was brutality, it was forced sexual attack and penetration," the Breitbart editor-in-chief opined. "Now it's become, really, any sex that the woman ends up regretting that she had." According to Marlow, the word "rape" has lost its meaning because women use it falsely. "You guys can do this in your own mind, where rape used to mean something," he continued. "We used to all knew what it meant. And then now we don't know what it means. And then we don't know what's credible and what's not. And now everyone is going to come forward." googletag.cmd.push(function() { […]

  • Federal Judge Permanently Blocks Trump From Withholding Federal Funding From Sanctuary Cities
    by Red Painter on November 21, 2017 at 5:00 pm

    Donald Trump just lost again in Federal Court. This time it wasn't in relation to his Muslim Ban. This time it was related to his attempt at cutting federal funding to sanctuary cities. Well, a federal judge just permanently blocked him from cutting funding. Are you tired of all the winning yet? The Hill is reporting that Judge William Orrick rules that Trump's order was "unconstitutional on its face." In his ruling, he said: "The defendants are permanently enjoined from enforcing Section 9(a) of the Executive Order against jurisdictions they deem as sanctuary jurisdictions. Because Section 9(a) is unconstitutional on its face, and not simply in its application to the plaintiffs here, a nationwide injunction against the defendants other than President Trump is appropriate." This follows 6 months after Orrick's temporary ruling that blocked Trump's order to withhold funding from cities that refused to comply with the Trump administration excessive immigration enforcement in San […]
