DNC chair Tom Perez says election meddling ‘act of war,’ Dem admin would be ‘dealing with this’

July 16th, 2018

Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, thinks allegations of Russian hacking in the 2016 election constitutes an “act of war,” but it’s not important enough to turn over servers associated with the scandal for investigation.

Trump highlighted the missing DNC server, and the party’s unwillingness to allow federal investigators to examine it, during a historic meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland on Monday.

“We have groups that are wondering why the FBI never took the server. … Why was the FBI told to leave the office of the Democratic National Committee, I’ve been wondering that. I’ve been asking that for months and months and I’ve been tweeting it out and calling it out on social media,” Trump said.

“Where is the server? I want to know: Where is the server?”

Perez wasn’t interested in answering that question when interviewed by CNN over the weekend.

July 15th, 2018

Congressman Tim Ryan attempted to laugh off Nancy Pelosi’s assertion that he and a colleague are “inconsequential,” but in doing so, he acknowledged what many people say: that the House Minority Leader is out of touch with regular people.

During a Saturday appearance on Fox & Friends, Ryan was asked to respond to Pelosi’s criticism of him earlier this week, when she belittled his relevance to the Democrats.

It’s no secret Nancy Pelosi is fond of hobnobbing with union bosses, CEOs and other super rich power brokers.

But a picture posted to Facebook this week shows she’s not opposed to mixing it up with admitted tax cheats and other questionable characters in the name of politics.

Pelosi attended a fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee at SOUTH Restaurant & Jazz Parlor in Philadelphia on Tuesday, where she posed for a picture as she beamed proudly beside union attorney Jack O’Neill and political director Marita Crawford, along with a man named Bill Miller V, Philly.com reports.

July 11th, 2018
By Victor Skinner

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s “weekend at Bernie’s” was “really wonderful,” he said.

Last weekend, De Blasio and his family trekked to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ $600,000 vacation home on the shores of the picturesque Lake Champlain, where photos show he canoed with his wife, waded with his son, and shot the breeze with socialist senator and his wife.

A picture from Saturday shows a shirtless Sanders chilling in a lawn chair with his wife, Jane, as they conversed with Chirlane McCray, de Blasio’s wife, and the mayor and son Dante took a dip.

Another photo showed de Blasio and McCray canoeing on Lake Champlain near Sanders’ four-bedroom retreat in North Hero, the New York Post reports.

“We were planning to be in that part of the world, and it was really wonderful … just to spend time with him,” the mayor told NY1 on Monday after returning home from his week-long family vacation.

As President Trump has repeatedly pointed out, California Congresswoman Maxine Waters is the “unhinged face of the Democrat Party.”

Now her mug is literally emblazoned on a black sleeveless “luxe streetwear” number from Mexican-American high-fashion designer Willy Chavarria’s latest collection.

Willy debuted the tribute to Waters at Men’s Fashion Week in New York City over the weekend. The men’s top features the word “Fighter” above a black and white image of the 79-year-old career politician gazing off into the distance.

WINNING! CNN already confirms ‘Justice’ Kavanaugh

July 10th, 2018
By Kyle Olson

Even CNN is subliminally realizing there’s little chance Judge Brett Kavanaugh will stopped by Senate Democrats.

During a live report at the White House after the president’s announcement Monday night, reporter Jim Acosta slipped and referred to the nominee as “Justice Kavanaugh” — twice.

“Sarah Sanders did say they don’t anticipate any problems at this point getting Justice Cavanaugh confirmed — that is obviously something that she would say,” Acosta said.

Moments later, he added, “A lot of confidence among top White House officials that Justice Kavanaugh should be confirmed rather easily…”

SOUR PELOSI: Strong job growth a ‘raw deal’ for American people

July 6th, 2018
By Kyle Olson

Nancy Pelosi can’t seem to find anything nice to say about anything positive that happens in the Trump era.

The House Minority Leader poo-pooed the latest strong jobs report, calling it a “raw deal” for Americans.

“June jobs numbers show what is at stake from the brewing storm of rising health costs, spiraling trade uncertainty and an economy being hollowed out to enrich big corporations and the wealthiest 1 percent,” Pelosi said in a statement.

“Six months after receiving their windfall from the GOP tax scam for the rich, Corporate America is on track to spend $1 trillion on dividends and stock buybacks, while announcing tens of thousands of layoffs, refusing to give workers a raise and raising costs for families. Meanwhile, hard-working farmers, factory workers and families across the nation are reeling from retaliatory tariffs and trade uncertainty. America should be taking strong, smart and strategic action against unfair trade policies, not recklessly antagonizing our allies and inviting retaliation against the men and women of American farming and manufacturing,” she said.

July 6th, 2018
By Victor Skinner

CNN’s Brian Stelter is dropping any semblance of impartial journalism to promote his personal politics.

It’s not exactly a breaking news shocker, but he made it official at the Aspen Ideas Festival last week, when he alleged the president is “poisoning the American people.”

“Why is this a moment we should be so concerned about?” NPR’s David Folkenflik asked Stelter during a panel discussion.
