    Primary Media (Credit: Gage Skidmore) <blockquote class="repubhubembed"><p class="rhexcerpt">PHILADELPHIA—Could political rhetoric be hazardous to public health? Quite possibly, according to a new University of Pennsylvania analysis of the last presidential campaign. During the 2016 campaign, cities that hosted rallies experienced 2.3 more assaults than average on the days that Donald Trump held campaign events there, according to the study, published Friday in the journal Epidemiology.<!--more--></p><style scoped>.repubhubembed{display:none;}</style></blockquote><iframe allowfullscreen="" class="rhembed" src=";showFirstImage=true&amp;showDate=true&amp;id=16231a2d6f7&amp;v=1&amp;s=repubhub" height="1549" […]

  • Shocker: Betsy DeVos Is Trying To Bust DoEd's Employee Union
    by Susie Madrak on March 17, 2018 at 2:42 pm

    So according to the Intercept, here's what Betsy DeVos did this week. She essentially declared the Department of Education free from existing union rules by imposing her own "collective bargaining" agreement. In other words, she's trying to bust their union. The union filed a complaint on behalf of the 3,900 staffers with the Federal Labor Relations Authority this week. On Monday, management issued a document they declared to be a collective bargaining agreement and said it was now in effect. The problem, as the union president Claudette Young said in a statement, “The agency has imposed an illegal document that we had absolutely no bargaining over. It’s a total attempt to strip employees of their collective bargaining rights and bust the union. This is an attempt to tie our hands.” What an arrogant and lawless bunch these Trump appointees are. They truly believe that the law doesn't apply to them, so they do whatever they want. After all, it's not as if the boss […]

  • Gen. McCaffrey: Trump Is A Serious Threat To National Security
    by Susie Madrak on March 17, 2018 at 4:11 am

    Retired four-star Gen. Barry McCaffrey doesn't tweet often, but this got Lawrence O'Donnell's attention on his show last night. Reluctantly I have concluded that President Trump is a serious threat to US national security. He is refusing to protect vital US interests from active Russian attacks. It is apparent that he is for some unknown reason under the sway of Mr Putin. — Barry R McCaffrey (@mccaffreyr3) March 16, 2018 Unfortunately, the phone discussion was cut short by breaking news about the firing of Andrew McCabe, but it's still worth noting. Rachel Maddow told O'Donnell, "I'm glad you're having him on. I would love to hear why he came to a conclusion that serious." "We remember the press conference, 'You must never doubt the generals." And now joining us by phone is General Barry McCaffrey, a retired four-star general and an MSNBC military analyst," he said. "Thank you for joining us tonight. And I'm wondering why tonight what was it that brought you to the point of […]

  • Republican Who Called Parkland Teens ‘skinhead Lesbian’ And ‘bald-faced Liar’ Abruptly Quits Race
    by Scarce on March 17, 2018 at 3:15 am

    Gibson said “I am not walking away with my head hung low. I am walking away with my head held high," He had decided after talking to friends and family, and prayer that it was best to leave the race, presumably for his earlier hate-filled comments. And it had nothing to do with the well over $100,000 Eryn Gilchrist had raised online in just one day to take on this hatemonger. Source: Associated Press Sabattus, Maine (AP) -- A Republican Maine House candidate who called a Florida high school shooting survivor a "skinhead lesbian" and called another a "bald-faced liar" is quitting the race. Leslie Gibson was widely criticized for insulting the survivors of last month's shooting, which killed 17 people. The Portland Press Herald reports Gibson said Friday he's walking away with his "head held high." One of the teenage students Gibson attacked online was Emma Gonzalez, a leader in student efforts to combat gun violence. He said there was "nothing about this skinhead lesbian" that […]

  • Feds: PA Neo-Nazis Discussed Bombing Counter-Protesters At Rally
    by Susie Madrak on March 17, 2018 at 2:40 am

    Members of Aryan Strike Force, a Pennsylvania white supremacist group, discussed setting off a suicide bomb to kill any counter protesters who showed up at a November 2016 neo-Nazi rally at the state Capitol, a court filing says. (I'm sure they're very nice people.) The court filing says members of Aryan Strike Force discussed the plan with members of the National Socialist Movement, a neo-Nazi group that held a Nov. 5, 2016, rally at the state Capitol. Informants told investigators that an Aryan Strike Force member who had a terminal illness said he was willing to blow himself up. He allegedly said he could hide the bomb in his oxygen tank. Prosecutors disclosed the plan in a motion earlier this month to opposes the case of one alleged ASF member whose lawyer is arguing entrapment. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1386288741770-3'); }) […]

  • FBI's Andrew McCabe Fired One Day Before His Retirement; Trump Gleeful
    by Susie Madrak on March 17, 2018 at 2:24 am

    The Washington Post reports the Keebler Elf has finally fired former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, who was scheduled to retire Sunday. Trump's tiny mincing minion released a statement late last night justifying the move with the Inspector General's report, although we all know the real reason why the Big Cheeto wanted him gone. After all, he was going to testify against Trump eventually in any obstruction case. He was accused of authorizing the disclosure of information to the media about a Clinton-related case, then misleading investigators about his actions in the matter. McCabe denies it. Expect leaks from the intelligence community. Lots of them. Official statement by Andrew McCabe on his firing. What an incredible and honorable man. The President Doesn't yet realize how terrible a move this has been. Thank you for your Service Mr. McCabe mor […]

  • Right Wing Christianist Linda Harvey Way Too Interested In 'Sexual Anarchy'
    by Tengrain on March 17, 2018 at 12:00 am

    Xristian Xrazie sex scold and noted boycott queen Linda Harvey pushed her snout out of her mud hut and it smelled like Spring. Little shoots of green were peaking out of the soil, the birds were chirping, and Linda sensed that soon, rutting season would begin. Linds sighed deeply, and glanced at her WaterPik. And that’s when she decided the nexus of the ‘mos and the ‘hos are to blame for Gawd’s wrath upon us. Or something. You see, the ‘mos can’t have bebes and the ‘hos are ‘bortin’ bebes, so they must be in league! The Ultimate in Conspiracies, amiright? Actually, I’m not sure what her point really is, but that’s never stopped her from speechifying about the horror of people getting their freak-on, while she sits in her hut, fuming, and swearing to her ancestors that no one will ever accuse her of licentiousness. Ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, as she opens her folders of sexual […]
