Anyone who claimed that Hilary Clinton was a security threat because of her emails last year who refuses to demand Trump's impeachment now for the same (worse, really) reasons must now admit that they never felt that Clinton was a security risk and that they simply hated her. Much of that is certainly rooted in sexism, but even if it's not, Donald Trump is the grosses example of not only a security threat but treason in modern America. How can Republicans fuel a lengthy investigation and waste of tax dollars over sex in the oval office but ignore this terrible danger?
It’s moments like these when progressives have hope against a Republican-controlled House and Senate. Senator Jeff Merkley is currently speaking against Gorsuch, and he’s been on the floor for over 14 hours at this point. This is an exhausting undertaking and the senator is proving his mettle, earning him praise from people from all facets of the Left today.
Elizabeth Warren recently spoke out against the “gig economy,” a new wave of jobs with companies like Lyft and Uber. She said that although the jobs can be appealing because you set your own hours and are your own boss, they also undermine all the hard work we have done over the decades to shore up workers’ rights.
The vast majority of Bernie Sanders’ supporters are calm, rational, intelligent people. Then you have the “Bernie bros,” a small but vocal minority (as they say) who are not happy with the current state of things. A group of Bernie bros kicked up a fuss at the Nevada State Democratic Convention this week, where they harassed several female speakers including Senator Barbara Boxer and Senator Dianne Feinstein.
I bet you thought that the Obama birth certificate story was dead. In
past years, we were hit by tales of President Obama being born in
Kenya, and in outer space, and was grown in a government lab by CDC
scientists. To hinder Obama, machine Republicans pooped out fibs like
the brown stuff from their behinds. These tall tales helped Mr.
Obama, because, they took the attention away from the real
investigation into Obama's birth.
There was a time when the United States was far more than just one of the major superpowers of the world. We were the envy of the world. We not only had the cowboy attitude and never say die approach that helped to tame the wilds of the west, but were also self sufficient.
The subtitle suggests my enthusiasm level for either candidate in the last elections. I know a lot of you love President Obama. So let me focus on what a Obama second term will be like and what he has done so far (including future plans being laid).
The murders in Benghazi of Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans on September 11th, 2012 seemed to arouse no outrage on the part of President Obama. The consulate was overrun and razed to the ground while the American citizens inside fought for their lives with light weapons totally inadequate for the task.
President Obama is back in the White House and he has a lot on his plate. A common sight over the last four years. The next four years will cement the legacy of the first African-American President. Will he bring us the hope and change that has been long promised?
