Rev. Al Sharpton, former DNC boss Donna Brazile and 176 other “Black Women Leaders and Allies” are publicly trashing House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for not doing enough to “protect” outspoken California Congresswoman Maxine Waters.
In a July 3 letter, the “Black Women Leaders and Allies” professed “full support for Congresswoman Maxine Waters” in the wake of her comments encouraging followers to harass the Trump administration, and likened the 79-year-old career politician to a human Statue of Liberty.
“For Black women, who are the most loyal base of the Democratic Party and the Progressive Movement, Congresswoman Waters is our hero. At this critical juncture in our nation’s history, Maxine Waters stands bold and unafraid, serving as a beacon of light and hope, her singular voice, speaking powerfully and urging the nation to the moral high ground of justice,” the letter read.
California Congresswoman Maxine Waters contends that death threats prevented her from attending engagements in Texas and Alabama this weekend, though they apparently didn’t keep her from a massive immigration rally in Los Angeles.
Waters sounded off about President Trump, the country’s immigration policies and child separations in front of City Hall on Saturday, when thousands gathered to protest and waive signs with messages like “compassion has no borders,” “welcome to occupied Mexico,” and “They’re Kids,” among others.
Waters had plenty to say at the event, specifically that she is “not afraid” of Trump and his supporters, though an altercation with a reporter at the rally suggests otherwise.
Waters was cruising the strip in her massive jet black SUV and waving to supporters, until the reporter questioned the congresswoman about her recent calls for liberals to publicly harass Trump administration officials.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s net favorability rating now sits at -24, just shy of her historic low -27 favorability rating in October 2010 – the month before voters handed control of Congress to Republicans.
The latest Gallup poll belies Democrats’ predicted “blue wave” in the 2018 midterm elections, though it also reveals the public’s dislike of politicians in general.
The Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Republican Paul Ryan, who announced earlier this year that he is retiring in January 2019, has the most positive ratings: 40% favorable and 45% unfavorable. His resulting net -5 image score compares with his Senate counterpart, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s -26. Across the aisle, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi’s net favorability of -24 is similar to McConnell’s, while Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer’s -15 is somewhat better. …
The current net favorable rating for McConnell is the historical worst for him since Gallup’s first reading in 2010, and Pelosi’s is close to her -27 record worst in October 2010.
An antifa guy thought he was so tough, until the right hook left him laying in the street.
The streets of left-wing Portland, Oregon where chaos again on Saturday as members of “Patriot Prayer” marched in the Freedom Rally and were confronted by the fascist Antifa after the Department of Homeland Security removed barriers keeping the warring groups apart.
The melee ensued after Antifa pelted marchers with eggs and lit a firework in the crowd.

Maxine Waters said earlier this week that she had to cancel events this weekend in Texas and Alabama due to “threats,” but that didn’t stop her from ranting against President Trump in Los Angeles today.
With her voice cracking and repeatedly yelling, Waters melted down while denouncing Trump.
Back in the day, when a piece of news went public – no matter if it was good or bad news – people have been discussing them everywhere. They were talking about the news while standing in line at the grocery store, while having a cold one at the local pub or while waiting for their turn at the barbershop.
Today, in turn, the news is no longer discussed at the pub or at grocery stores but online, on social networks. But people often seem reluctant to express their true opinions even through these channels, considering that they are completely public and accessible – in short, they don’t confide in them, and they shy away from confiding in their online friends, too.
But there is one tool that they have a complete confidence in – their friendly neighborhood search engine.
Bill and Hillary Clinton are worried sick about illegal immigrant children who are removed from the adults who try to smuggle them across the U.S.-Mexico border.
“The question of how we reunite the children who were taken from the parents is one that’s keeping me up at night,” Hillary recently told The Guardian. “Absolutely, I worry about that. I’m worried that some children will not be reunited.”
So is Danny Williams.
Williams claims to be the bi-racial son of Bill Clinton, who allegedly paid black prostitute Bobbie Ann Williams for sex in Little Rock on multiple occasions in 1984. Williams contends his mother told Clinton about her pregnancy, and Clinton was her only white client at the time, but the then governor rejected him.
As the noose seems to be tightening on her prospects to return to party power after the November elections, the House Minority Leader stumbled over words, suffered brain freezes and stared at reporters during a Thursday press conference.
Donald Trump Jr. is giving Elizabeth Warren an opportunity to prove her loyalty to the Native American community with a friendly wager about the Massachusetts senator’s self-professed Indian heritage.
Trump Jr. is dating Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, who recently revealed the results of a DNA test she took with her co-hosts on “The Five”: 8.4 percent “sub-Saharan African,” and 6.1 percent “East Asian and Native American,” with at least 5.3 percent fully Native American.
Warren claimed Native American minority status during her time at Harvard and has repeatedly refused to provide anything but family lore and her high cheekbones to support her claim. The scandal earned Warren the nickname “Pocahontas” despite her efforts to repair her image with the Native American community.
Twitchy revived issue with the headline “Fox News’ Kimberly Guilfoyle could be more Native American than Elizabeth Warren” on Wednesday, and Trump Jr. seized on the opportunity to challenge Warren to put the issue to bed.
“I’ll make this interesting. I’ll bet @SenWarren $10,000 to a Native American charity that @kimguilfoyle is more Native American than she is. LMK (let me know),” he posted to Twitter Wednesday, along with a link to Twitchy.
