Tue, 24 Apr 2018 04:49:58 GMT

Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party is ashamed to say “England” for fear of appealing to racists, a damning party report says. The English Labour Network — set up by Labour moderate MPs — ordered a study to look at how to champion patriotism. But the group, which was founded last year, found that Labour is too scared to mention England, or celebrate St. George’s Day — which is today. The report warns: “Labour’s biggest single problem is we often don’t mention England even when talking about England.” It adds: “Some activists are uncertain about celebrating St. George’s Day or reflecting English...

'The Nation' Angered that 'Racist' Trump to Pardon Late African-American Boxing Champ

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 03:09:16 GMT

The Nation's sports editor Dave Zirin is livid that the man who occupies the White House, courtesy of the slave-holders who devised the electoral college, is getting the credit for pardoning Jack Johnson. The African-American Johnson was an early 20th century boxing champion who also served prison time for a criminal charge. Johnson (shown in photograph) was the first African-American world heavyweight boxing champion, from 1908-1915, the era of Jim Crow. He had dated and married white women, and in 1912, he was arrested for violating the Mann Act forbidding a person from transporting a woman across state lines for...

Politico Reporter: With DNC Lawsuit, Democrats Worry Their Party

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 02:37:27 GMT

The cash-strapped Democratic National Committee has decided to be clown itself further by suing Wikileaks, Russia, and the Trump campaign for collusion during the 2016 election. For a party thatÂ’s tired of the media talking about Hillary and 2016, this is a way to keep both issues front and center. ItÂ’s going to re-open the wounds between the left and far left of the Democratic Party, erecting another obstacle for unity as the party heads into the 2016 election. Is the DNC's Trump-Russia conspiracy lawsuit a "political stunt?"Now, if youÂ’re a Democrat, it keeps Russia in the news, as the...

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 01:56:47 GMT

Much of president’s agenda is riding on outcome of caseWhat the Supreme Court does with President Trump’s travel ban case, which reaches the justices this week, is likely to determine whether courts across the country give him the usual deference due a president and allow him leeway to pursue his immigration crackdown — or whether they join the anti-Trump resistance determined to thwart him at every turn. From battles in California, Illinois and Pennsylvania over sanctuary cities, to illegal immigrant teens gaining abortion rights, to the border wall, to Mr. Trump’s attempts to limit some paths to legal immigration and...

A Warning to my fellow Liberals

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 01:14:21 GMT

"Instead of open minds and lively debate, I found dogmatic progressive ideology and groupthink. One attendee told me that I, a former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer, am “no better than Roger Ailes” because my company aggregates both liberal and conservative commentaries and thereby is “pushing a right-wing agenda.” Someone else said: “Trump supporters are so stupid . . . they think the tax bill was a good deal because they got back—what, a few thousand a year?” I don’t claim to have the answers. I am, after all, a card-carrying member of the liberal elite. I went to high school...

Harrington: The Media Spin Every Story to Hurt Trump ‘Just Because It’s Trump’

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 01:06:40 GMT

Washington Free Beacon writer Elizabeth Harrington said Monday on Fox Business that the media spin stories to hurt President Donald Trump "just because it's Trump," even if the news is beneficial to him. Harrington noted that after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announced over the weekend that his country would halt its nuclear and missile tests ahead of a planned summit with Trump, the media praised Kim's negotiating rather than Trump's diplomacy. "They can't give Trump credit for anything," Harrington said. "If this was Obama, he would be getting the Nobel Peace Prize." "It is such a detriment to...

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 00:52:20 GMT

President Donald Trump’s deputies are planning to shrink the H-1B program and force companies to pay higher wages to American graduates, according to a document from the Department of Homeland Security. The huge H-1B outsourcing program — which now keeps a population of at least 460,000 non-immigrant foreign graduates in U.S. professional jobs — would be shrunk by narrowing the law’s definition of “specialty occupations,” according to the agency document provided to Breitbart News. The proposed change is huge, said Rosemary Jenks, policy director at NumbersUSA. “If Trump can get done what is in that letter, I think it will...



Vox: Abolish Midterm Elections After Trump's Exit

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 00:46:53 GMT

Dylan Matthews provides yet more proof why nobody should ever treat Vox as a serious publication. In the past this Vox writer suggested we ditch the U.S. Constitution for a parliamentary system of government, get rid of the U.S. Senate, and opined about how American Independence in 1776 was a "monumental mistake." In his latest incarnation of bringing down the American system of government, Matthews pretends to moderate his demands by suggesting that after President Donald Trump is removed for office that the Electoral College and midterm elections be abolished. He presents his latest far left fantasy dripping with disdain for...
