Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said on Tuesday that he refused to negotiate with President Trump and Republicans over the construction of a border wall.
Schumer claimed that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) asked him to negotiate with the president, but Schumer refused. “It’s not a negotiation – no wall,” Schumer said.
The New York senator also indicated a willingness to shut down the government if Trump pressed for funding for the border wall.
Former President Obama took a veiled shot at Hillary Clinton during his first public appearance since leaving the White House, at the University of Chicago on Monday.
Obama was telling the panel about how he visited with at-risk youth on Sunday ahead of his appearance at the University of Chicago.
“If the six of you had been in that conversation, you would have come away not saying ‘these are some thugs or super-predators that I can’t relate to.’ You’d actually say, ‘man, if I had gone through what they went through I’m not sure how things would have worked out me either,'” Obama told the panel.
Obama choice of the term “super-predator” is an apparent reference to comments that Hilary Clinton made in 1996 that caused a considerable backlash in both of the Clintons’ presidential campaigns.
Obama concluded by saying how important it is for people to listen to other people, so they can become empathetic to their situation.
It appears that Obama still doesn’t think Clinton worked hard enough during her campaign, having previously bashed Clinton for not meeting with enough people in swing states who hold different views.
Hollywood Filmmaker, Josh Fox is being challenged to walk the walk after he tweeted that we should fight ISIS with "love."
After the United States dropped the "Mother of All Bombs" last week on ISIS in Afghanistan, Hollywood director Josh Fox was immediately outspoken against the decision that Pentagon officials say targeted ISIS tunnels and killed several dozen ISIS fighters.
You did it! We raised 114% of funds needed to send GASLAND director Josh Fox to Afghanistan to hug it out with ISIS.
THANK YOU for your help with this worthy cause.
I will now personally present Josh with the opportunity to go and show us that all ISIS needs it love. We will give Josh a month to accept - if his "love your enemy" statements prove to be just another hypocrisy, all of the funds raised will go to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Thank you again for contributing and spreading the word! We couldn't do this without your support.
Bill Nye the fake science Guy is at it again! In his newest show in order to brainwash children into liberal ideology, Bill attempts to brainwash children into believing that in just 3 years old their capable of picking their own gender which may not always be with they were born with.
The fake science Guy is known for his left-wing ideology and bashing Republicans and anyone who disagrees with liberals. However, lately he's been taking this to an entirely new level as he continues to expand on his stupidity with more and more claims that have absolutely no scientific bearing whatsoever.
Sharia law is contrary to our Constitution and it should absolutely be banned across the USA. We just had a second doctor arrested for performing genital mutilation on little girls. That’s only one of the sharia values that are completely unacceptable.
Maxine Waters is infuriated with Newt Gingrich for pushing for a ban across the USA on sharia law.
Maxine is already on the record insisting sharia is compatible with the U.S. Constitution. In 2012, this stupid woman insisted that it was the case. And she equates any anti-sharia law with hate.
Maxine Waters is under the impression that sharia law can be implemented while our U.S. Constitution is in effect. Anyone who disagrees is an Islamophobe and a hater according to her. Democrats like Maxine have been pushing that message for years.
In 2012, the Council of Pakistan Affairs and Islamic Society of Orange County welcomed Maxine Waters to a meeting along with other extremists in Congress like Congresswomen Chu and Sanchez, the California Comptroller et al where she made her comments. They would have been controversial ten years ago but in this PC age, the Constitution is controversial.
Sharia is law and, as such, it can only compete with U.S. law.
At the end of the video, Maxine quoted Daniel Mach of the ACLU (an organization filled with communists and anti-Christian activists) as saying sharia equals Islam and Muslims and a vote against one is a vote against another. Mach also said that anti-sharia laws are “motivated by anti-Muslim bigotry, plain and simple.”
In 1956, the Regents of the University of California allocated a 2.8-acre plot of land for future development into student housing, parking, and offices as part of the university's "Long Range Development Plan." At the time, public funds were lacking to buy the land, and the plan was shelved until June 1967, when the university acquired $1.3 million to acquire the land through the process of eminent domain. The radical students threatened to destroy the University if construction began on the new property. The short-term goal was to create athletic fields with student housing being a longer-range goal. Liberals, hippies, and just ordinary anarchists.
Gov. Reagan called the Berkeley campus "a haven for communist sympathizers, protesters, and sex deviants." And after protesters would not leave the State's property had the removed by force. Very unpopular with the intellectual elite, wildly with the taxpayers.
It hasn't even been 100 days out of office and Barack Obama is already looking to make money from the same people he bashed to during his presidency! There's rich and greedy bankers!
For a whopping $400,000 speaking fee, the former president will be speaking at a conference in September for Cantor Fitzgerald.
The event is marked as an invitation-only crowd of college students, organizers and activists at the University of Chicago. So if you are one of the Obama supporters who thought his war against the banks was actually real, THINK AGAIN!
Sunday afternoon at a protest in Washington DC, a violent member of Antifa assaulted Rebel Media's Washington Bureau Chief Jack Posobiec, as he attempted to give the alt-left a platform to speak their mind. The assailant was quickly arrested by George Washington University police, and Posobiec is filing charges.
Upon closer inspection of the video, however was clear footage of Antifa organizer Paul 'Luke' Kuhn - who was busted by Project Veritas plotting Butyric acid (stink bomb) attacks at a DC Trump inauguration party. The undercover sting, filmed at the iconic and reputable Comet Ping Pong pizzeria, resulted in the arrest of Kuhn along with two others. As part of his 'deferred sentencing' / probation, Kuhn agreed not to attend future Antifa events - and it looks like he just violated that arrangement...
I had the incredible displeasure of stumbling upon a clip from Bill Nye’s new Netflix show this afternoon, and it made me throw up in my mouth. And, since it’s just not fair that I suffer alone, I’m passing this two-minute visual assault on to all you fine people.
Nye (you know, the same not-a-real-scientist who thinks climate skepticism should be criminalized) recently hosted a bizarre musical number on his show called – I kid you not – “My Sex Junk," sung by some random actress named Rachel Bloom. The whole thing is a montage to sexuality, gender warps and crude anatomical references, and was part of Nye's big anti-science pitch that there are more genders than Baskin Robbins flavors.
Seriously. And the only possible way to describe this crapstorm of a “song” is that it’s an off-key pile of spandex-coated word vomit poured into fishnet stockings and served with a side of stab-my-eyes-out. It might as well be called “Exactly Why Donald Trump Won The Election, The Musical.”
Jesus: social justice warrior? Apparently so, if you believe Jacqui Lewis, senior minister of the very liberal Middle Collegiate Church in NYC. During her appearance on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show this morning, Lewis described Jesus as a “brown-skinned Palestinian man who understood he needed to resist.”
The notion that Jesus was Palestinian has been thoroughly debunked. He was Jewish, after all. But that hasn’t stopped anti-Semites like Barack Obama’s former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, from also making the claim.
Claiming that “America has forgotten what it means to be Christian,” Lewis said that “Jesus can be too white and too empired for us to understand.”
And was Lewis alluding to Jews, sometimes referred to as the Chosen People, when she said “the Jesus that is created by the white church . . . believes that because, quote, folks are chosen, that they have more money, more assets, more wealth, better education”?
The New England Patriots blasted The New York Times for tweeting what they said were misleading photos of the team’s visit to the White House on Wednesday, in an effort to make it appear that a large swath of the players and staff were boycotting the event in protest of President Donald Trump. Here is the picture they tweeted of the team’s visit in 2015 with President Obama, and Wednesday’s photo with President Trump.
TV personality Bill Nye criticized CNN on New Day Saturday for letting a skeptic of man-made climate change participate in a panel discussion. “I will say, much as I love CNN, you’re doing a disservice by having one climate change skeptic, and not 97 or 98 scientists or engineers concerned about climate change,” Nye contended. Nye appeared with May Boeve of the green action group 350.org and Princeton University physics professor William Happer, who has downplayed the impact of carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. So despite the two-to-one slant in favor of the environmentalists, the former PBS host wasn’t satisfied.
Anchor Victor Blackwell turned to Happer first during the segment, and asked him about his meeting with President Donald Trump earlier in 2017. The professor emphasized that Trump was “very supportive of science. His uncle, John Trump, was a physicist at M.I.T., and we talked a little bit about him. I knew about his work. So I don’t think science has anything to fear from Mr. Trump.” Blackwell followed up by noting that Happer once said “the world is getting greener, and people should stop hyperventilating.” Happer replied by explaining his take on carbon dioxide.
There’s this myth that’s developed around carbon dioxide that it’s a pollutant. But you and I both exhale carbon dioxide with every breath. Each of us emits about two pounds of carbon dioxide a day; so are we polluting the planet? Carbon dioxide is a perfectly natural gas. It’s just like water vapor. It’s something that plants love. They grow better with more carbon dioxide, and you can see the greening of the Earth already from the additional carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. -- Nye then retorted with his hint that CNN shouldn’t even bring on climate change skeptics. He later emphasized that “if you suppress science; if you pretend that climate change isn’t a real problem; you will fall behind other countries that do invest in science, that do invest in basic research.”
On Friday’s Access Hollywood, CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King responded to the fact that she had recently vacationed in Tahiti with, among others, the Obama family, pathetically claiming that it was “not a political statement” and no big deal since her “friends” are out of the White House.
“Gayle’s Obama vacation under fire. Welcome to Access Hollywood. Did vacationing on a yachet with the Obamas get Gayle King in hot water with her CBS colleagues,” reported Access Hollywood co-host and former Today newsreader Natalie Morales.
Ilhan Omar, the 34-year-old community organizer who came to America as a refugee from Somalia, was one of only two members of the Minnesota State House to vote against a bill that would allow life insurance companies to deny payouts to the beneficiaries of terrorists who die in violent attacks on Americans
The House voted 127-2 to pass the bill, which now moves on to a vote in the State Senate.
Omar, who represents the heavily immigrant Cedar Riverside area of Minneapolis, was joined by fellow Democratic Rep. John Lesch of St. Paul in voting against the bill.
Omar’s vote sticks out because at least 42 Somali refugees have been confirmed by the FBI to have left the U.S. to join overseas terrorist organizations, including al-Shabab, the al-Qaida affiliate in Somalia, and ISIS in Syria and Iraq.
Dozens of other Somali-Americans have been tried and/or convicted of providing material support to overseas terrorists.
Before she was elected she was an activist who often lobbied the Minneapolis City Council on progressive issues.
Ths is not the first time Omar has been in the middle of controversy. While running for her seat, she was exposed for being married to her own brother, but this didn't seem to stop the 'tolerant' people of her district from giving her the seat anyways.
Georgia Democrat Jon Ossoff refused to say whether he would vote for Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) to be Speaker of the House if Democrats regained the majority even though the current minority leader has been a outspoken supporter of Ossoff and even held a fundraiser for him.
CNN anchor Ana Cabrera's question regarding Ossoff's support for Pelosi came after he refused to place himself on either side of the ideological divide between establishment Democrats and Bernie Sanders, who this week questioned whether Ossoff was a true "progressive."
"So tell me this, would you vote for Nancy Pelosi as leader or Speaker if the Democrats were to take the majority?" Cabrera asked after Ossoff's initial dodge.
Ossoff said that he hasn't given that question an "ounce of thought," because "there is a lot of time between now and then."
"I'm focused on winning an election here in Georgia’s sixth district not a potential leadership contest in the U.S. House of Representatives that’s at least a year and a half away," Ossoff said. "There’s plenty of time for Democrats to work out what’s going to happen at the national level."
‘He walks past and doesn’t look at me. When he said it, I didn’t respond. I was mortified because it not only was sexual, I took that as a very plantational remark. I’ve been around enough racism. Such a blatant person, with such a high profile, making me feel uncomfortable, but then not even acknowledging me as a human being.’
MSNBC host Brian Williams and Daily Beast editor Christopher Dickey drew a connection on Thursday between President Donald Trump and a "racist" French presidential candidate.
As news was breaking of a deadly shooting on the Champs-Élysées in Paris, Williams and Dickey began talking about how the shooting could effect the upcoming French presidential election.
Dickey spoke about Marine Le Pen, president of the National Front party and a leading candidate in the French election.
"The most famous of them is Marine Le Pen, who is the head of a very far right party that will, believe me, will exploit this to the maximum if the shooter, the man who was shooting on the Champs-Élysées, turns out to have been an immigrant or the child of immigrants in any way, shape, or form, or a Muslim in any way, shape, or form," Dickey said. "Because she is running a very anti-Muslim, very anti-immigrant campaign and always has."
"Some would say it's racist. Many people do say it's racist," Dickey continued. "But it certainly builds on the divisions that already exist in this society."
Williams then tried to draw a connection between Le Pen, Trump, and the Brexit vote–Britain's decision last year to leave the European Union.
"So her election would further spark that really started with Brexit, a spark that people looking at the global situation include the election of Donald Trump," Williams said. "There are fears about Angela Merkel's successor in Germany, but that would be a piece of this whole, correct?"
Dickey agreed, before calling two of the French candidates "extreme."
"Both of those characters want to get essentially, get out of the European Union and also weaken NATO," Dickey said. "They are very pro-Russian, and so if that sounds like an echo of things we've seen in the United states, and to some extent heard in Britain, it is, and it would be really the nails in the coffin of the European Union and very probably of NATO as well."
Tucker Carlson debated a woman who came to the U.S. as a young illegal immigrant and later attained citizenship status and criticized President Trump's planned border wall.
Julissa Arce said she used a fake social security number to get a job in the United States, and later worked her way up to a vice presidential position at Goldman Sachs.
Carlson asked if Arce committed identity theft to get her job, but she said she simply made up the numbers. He noted that falsifying social security documentation is a felony.
She said she did not want to use a fake social security number but said it was one of the only ways for her to get ahead in the business world.
Remember just yesterday we posted a video of a Antifa idiot getting punked by a black eye that wasn't there to take this guys orders or his bullshit? Well, apparently he has returned to a mostly white crowd and decided to spew even more nonsense only to get made a joke out of by a man dressed in a carrot outfit.
CNN's "Inside Politics" panel laughed Thursday at the apparent signs of disunity during the current "Unity Tour" of the Democratic Party, particularly when Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) could not even identify himself as a Democrat.
Sanders and newly elected Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez are on a rocky, nationwide "Unity Tour" after a disastrous 2016 election result. Perez has received boos on multiple stops during the tour of purple and red states as part of an effort to rebuild the party's grassroots movement.
The most awkward sign of the party's disunity occurred Tuesday night. Sitting right next to Perez, Sanders told MSNBC's Chris Hayes he does not consider himself a Democrat, but rather an independent. Sanders mounted a strong challenge to establishment favorite Hillary Clinton in 2016 for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination, despite not identifying as a party member.
After playing the clip, CNN host John King noted how uncomfortable Perez looked as Sanders spoke.
Dinesh D’Souza absolutely eviscerates a liberal student who asks into proof Democrats racist history. Perhaps the student didn't see Hillary's America that expose all of the truths of the Democratic Party. Perhaps they should of watch the documentary before asking someone who clearly knows more than they do about Democrats and their history of slavery and oppression.
American Oversight, a newly formed ethics watchdog group, has gone to court over President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claims that he was wiretapped by the Obama administration and an ongoing FBI investigation into whether the Trump campaign cooperated with Russian intelligence agencies.
After their Freedom of Information Act request for documentation was rejected by the Justice Department and the FBI, the group is suing both agencies.
The first lawsuit, filed Wednesday, demands proof to back Trump’s explosive charge, initially made on Twitter on March 4, that his predecessor had wiretapped Trump Tower last year.
Watch Antifa terrorists smash out a police car window then throw firebomb inside forcing a cop to exit and take a few blows in the process while attempting to stand his ground. Only to subsequently flee. These terrorists must be dealt with accordingly before it's too late to stop them.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg appeared to erroneously label South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham as one of the "women of the Senate" on Monday.
Ginsburg's statement came in her remarks upon accepting an Allegheny College award given to her and the late Justice Antonin Scalia for civility in public life. Hours after Justice Neil Gorsuch was sworn in to replace Scalia, Ginsburg took to the podium in calling on lawmakers to work together, but appeared to identify South Carolina's senior senator as a woman.
"I thought back to the 1993 confirmation of my nomination to the court—the hearing was altogether civil, the vote was 96 to 3. For Justice Scalia, the vote was unanimous," Ginsburg said. "Let's hope members of Congress, the members that Allegheny College has already honored — Vice President Joe Biden and Senator John McCain, the women of the Senate, Senators Dianne Feinstein and Lindsey Graham — let's hope that they and others of goodwill will lead in restoring harmonious work ways."
During today’s Morning Joe discussion of the ouster of Bill O’Reilly at Fox News, Joe Scarborough asked, “Do they remake over the entire network? Is anybody else in the [Murdoch] family’s crosshairs right now?”
Replied New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters: “I think you have to look at somebody like Sean Hannity, and question whether or not his almost propaganda-like attitude and programming every night is going to be acceptable in the minds of the family, which is clearly trying to shift the network in a different direction.”
Quipped Scarborough: “it’s also very confusing because he does it in Russian.” Note: that’s a variation on a line from years ago about Pat Buchanan delivering his remarks in German.
On Wednesday, the Supreme Court of the United States heard the oral argument for the controversial Trinity Lutheran Church v. Comer. The case tackles the idea of a separation between church and state, “The question: Can states refuse to give money to churches even when it's for something that doesn't involve worship,” noted Anchor Lester Holt during NBC Nightly News. And judging by questions asked by the justices, it appeared as though the majority might side with the church. And judging by NBC’s coverage, the network was appalled by the idea. “When Trinity Lutheran Church in Columbia, Missouri, heard about a program for resurfacing playgrounds using rubber from scrapped tires, it applied for a state grant at the preschool it runs,” reported Justice Correspondent Pete Williams, “But the state said ‘no’ because its constitution says ‘no state money can be given in aid of any church.’”
Williams didn’t seem to think the church’s claims of religious discrimination had any legal standing. “38 other states have laws like Missouri’s,” he noted, “Their defenders say they don't interfere with religious practices, they just choose not to subsidize them.” That’s despite the argument of David Cortman, the church’s lawyer that “The church here was not seeking anything preferable or favorable treatment, it was seeking equal treatment here.” The NBC correspondent sat down with Barry Lynn, the executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State who declared that “If Trinity Lutheran wins this case, it will be a radical change from the way we've always treated religious institutions in this country.” …
In sharp contrast to the relentlessly hostile coverage President Trump has faced, eight years ago the liberal media celebrated and adored President Barack Obama during his first 100 days in office. From day one when CBS’s Harry Smith called the 2009 inauguration “this most sacred event,” the early days of the Obama presidency were met with a flood of positive media coverage.
Watch how quickly this young punk from the Antifa terrorist group goes silent when confronted by a black dude asking him what he's really about. Suddenly the kid really has nothing else to say when someone standing in his face ready to throw down.
MSNBC’s Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski gave an fawning interview to former Obama Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett Thursday morning in a harsh reminder of just how differently reporters treated the Obama Administration compared to the current administration. Mika couldn’t contain her excitement at getting to talk to Jarrett even begging the former advisor repeatedly to get herself, Michelle or Barack involved in politics again, to “save the party.” She began the sympathetic interview by empathizing how “rough” election night was for Democrats. She cooed to Jarrett, “There were some rough -- I mean, election night, what was that like for you? After Jarrett answered that it was “gut-wrenching” but work still had to be done so they needed to move on, the MSNBC host harped on the election night “devastation” again:
I still, though, wonder like, is there any flash in time, election night or in the days after, God, I saw some brutal pictures of some really devastated faces, could you ever have imagined and was there a moment when you realized the next president is going to be the man who rose to power on the birther movement, of all things? -- Though there’s no denying Trump did help spread birther conspiracies prior to his campaign, so did Hillary Clinton. Her campaign was actually the first to raise these conspiracy theories during the 2008 election when she was running against then Senator Obama. Mika then asked Jarrett what she wish she’d known before her first days in the White House. Jarrett responded with a scathing rebuke of “partisan” Republicans who had obstructed Obama from “day one” and were “terrified” at giving the “power back” to the “hands of the American people.”
As you heard President Obama say before he left, one of his biggest disappointments was this toxic nature in Washington and how I think the Republicans decided very early on from day one, that they were going to put their short-term political interests ahead of what was good for our country. Just think about it Mika. When President Obama took office we were losing 750,000, 800,000 jobs a month, the unemployment rate up to 10%. Wouldn't you think that's a time where people would say let's come together and try to solve these big problems. I think I just didn't fully appreciate coming in just how the entrenched special interests would hold on with a stranglehold to that status quo and that change, it was terrifying to them and it meant giving up power and putting it back in the hands of the American people and there was a lot of resistance to that. Mika then begged Jarrett in a series of questions for her to run or Michelle Obama.
Is it possible to have an impact post-White house and is there a political future for you? There was once potential Senate run? After Jarrett said that she was more interested in encouraging the next generation to run for political office, an earnest Mika wondered, “What about encouraging your friend Michele [Obama]?” Mika then sympathetically asked Jarrett, “When you see the attacks on his legacy, do you get angry?” Not a terrible question in and of itself but it’s nearly impossible to imagine Mika asking Karl Rove this same question about Bush. Mika also asked Jarrett what she thought about the “amazing” “Women’s March” and what the “next” step was. She ended the interview by begging Jarrett again to persuade the former president to get involved in politics again. Could you do a favor for me and ask President Obama something for me? Could you -- could he come back and save the party and tell them what to do?
After Jarrett said Obama was focused on finding the next “Obama 2.0” in the younger generation to foster to run for political office, Mika couldn’t help herself and gushed, “So seriously, is that something he’s going to be working on? Is helping you find that next generation?” -- “Oh absolutely!” Jarrett happily responded.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) appeared on ABC’s “The View” to tout her new book, and during the interview compared President Donald Trump to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
Whoopi Goldberg, a host of the show, asked Warren to explain what is going on with North Korea, and how America resolves the crisis.
“We know he is an unstable man who has nuclear weapons,” Warren began telling Goldberg.
Joy Behar, another of the shows hosts, interrupted and asked Warren if she is talking about President Trump, leading the panel into laughter.
In response, Warren laughed and nodded stating, “what could possibly go wrong?”
During the battle for Berkeley last Saturday, at the Patriots Day rally, perhaps the most shocking incident involved an ANTIFA thug who attacked a pro-Trump supporter with a bike lock, smashing the man in the head, sending him bleeding intensively to the ground.
Thanks to the Internet and the sleuths at Reddit and 4Chan, the identity of this attempted murderer has been revealed!
Shockingly, or maybe in these times, not so shockingly, the criminal seems to be a San Francisco State University professor by the name of Eric Clanton.
At first, Internet users matched up the images of the ANTIFA thug with Clanton's online photos, seeming to put the puzzle pieces together and late last night, Jack Posobiec, Washington Bureau Chief of Rebel TV confirmed the story.
Let's see what the authorities do next. Stay Tuned.
The ever so unoriginal fake Indian, Elizabeth Warren, once again proved just how stupid she truly is by stealing Sarah Palin's line in an attempt to rouse up support for women that we now know her staff paid less than their male counterparts.
