IT BEGINS: Pelosi politicizes school shooting, demands new gun laws

February 15th, 2018
By Victor Skinner

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi isn’t wasting time politicizing the horrific school shooting in Parkland, Florida this week, using the deaths of 17 innocent students and staff to call for new laws to limit the rights of gun owners.

Pelosi placed the blame for the shooting – the deadliest school shooting since a gunman massacred dozens at a Connecticut elementary school in 2012 – on Republicans for protecting gun rights, ignoring the reality that she neglected to take up the issue as Speaker of the House during Obama’s first term, when Democrats maintained total control.

MYSTERY: Did artist ‘copy and paste’ Obama portrait?

February 13th, 2018
By Kyle Olson

Is it possible to “copy and paste” a painted portrait?

President Obama unveiled his official portrait at the National Portrait Gallery and it was … unique.

Kehinde Wiley created the official work depicting the president sitting in a chairbeing slowly enveloped by leaves and flowers.

But eagle-eyed viewers are wondering if Wiley copied features of the painting in an act of laziness.

An visual analysis of the portrait posted on Reddit shows the artist appearing to simply duplicate aspects of the painting.

Here’s a closer look:

Notice the pattern similarities in the colored boxes.

The LA Times reports:

Kehinde Wiley created the official portrait of the president against a backdrop of lush flowers — and not just any flowers. They are “chrysanthemums (the official flower of Chicago), jasmine (symbolic of Hawaii where the president spent most of his childhood) and African blue lilies (alluding to the president’s late Kenyan father).”

Maxine Waters GOP opponent raises more individual contributions: She ‘works for special interests, not voters’

February 13th, 2018
By Victor Skinner

Maxine Waters’ Republican challenger is calling her out for taking the bulk of her campaign cash from special interests, rather than the voters she’s elected to serve.

Waters, the entrenched incumbent in California’s heavily Democratic 43rd congressional district, has spent the last year on a warpath to impeach President Trump, whom she refers to as “the most despicable, dishonest human being this country’s ever seen.”

During that time, her 2016 Republican challenger, Omar Navarro, has worked to build his following and expand his grassroots fundraising, attracting support from folks like Trump advisor Roger Stone, former presidential candidate Herman Cain, former Maricopa County, Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, and other notable conservatives.

Hillary’s #MeToo moment: Clinton-sponsored radical Islamist academic accused of rape

February 12th, 2018
By Victor Skinner

There’s a problem with failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s support for the “Me Too” movement, and his name is Tariq Ramadan.

The radical Islamic scholar, one of two with terrorist ties that Clinton personally vouched for as President Obama’s Secretary of State, is among the latest to be accused of rape in what’s become a worldwide epidemic of women accusing powerful men of sexual misconduct.

According to the Swiss news site, The Local:

Two Muslim women have accused Ramadan, a 55-year-old Oxford University professor whose grandfather founded Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood movement, of rape. …

Henda Ayari, a 41-year-old feminist activist who previously practised an ultra-conservative brand of Islam, claims Ramadan raped her in Paris in 2012.

Another woman, a 40-year-old disabled Muslim convert going by the alias “Christelle”, claimed he raped and beat her in the southeastern city of Lyon in 2009.

NFL player who protested police brutality during anthem arrested for domestic violence

Reuben Foster, linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers, was among players on his team to take a knee during the national anthem last fall to protest alleged police brutality of blacks.

He was among about 180 players who sat or knelt for the national anthem at games following President Donald Trump’s comments about the “total disrespect” during an Alabama campaign rally in September, AL.com reports.

Ironically, Foster is now facing charges stemming from his own alleged brutality.

Los Gatos Monte Sereno police arrested the 23-year-old Alabama native Sunday morning on charges of domestic violence, threats and possession of an “assault weapon,” according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

By Victor Skinner

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wants women to #raiseyourvoice, though she struggled to heed the slogan as she fought back a coughing fit during this week’s “The MAKERS Conference.”

The conference – inspired by Gloria Steinem, Lena Waithe and the “Time’s Up” movement – ran from Monday through Wednesday to celebrate all kinds of liberal feminist “MAKERS,” from outspoken actress Lena Dunham to Clinton, Martha Stewart and Oprah Winfrey, through panel discussions and other programs.

On Wednesday, Clinton streamed into the conference on a live feed from New York to give closing remarks, though she struggled to contain a massive coughing fit – a problem that plagued her throughout the 2016 presidential campaign.
