Devin Nunes' hometown paper slams 'laughable' idea he deserves medal

By Tommy Christopher - October 16, 2018

The same paper that endorsed Nunes for 16 years is now savaging him for protecting Trump.

Rep. Devin Nunes’ (R-CA) hometown paper came down on him like a ton of bricks after Trump suggested giving Nunes a “very important medal” for his campaign to undermine the Russia investigation.

During an interview with “Fox & Friends” last week, Trump said that “Devin Nunes should get the Medal of Honor. What he’s gone through, and his bravery, he should get a very important medal.”

He then suggested a Medal of Freedom, since Nunes is a civilian.

The “Medal of Honor” comment drew condemnation from Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), a U.S. Army veteran who lost both her legs while serving in the Iraq War, and who eviscerated Trump for “insult(ing) real Medal of Honor recipients.”

Trump’s “Medal of Freedom” suggestion didn’t go over any better with his hometown paper’s editorial board. The Fresno Bee published a scathing editorial slamming the “laughable” idea.




Ex-prosecutor suggest Trump may have violated US law by helping Saudis cover up journalist's murder

16 OCT 2018 AT 09:30 ET

A former federal prosecutor said President Donald Trump may have broken U.S. law but helping to cover up the apparent abduction and murder of a Washington Post journalist by Saudi Arabia.

Glenn Kirschner, a former prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s District of Columbia office, said the president may have been an accessory after the fact — a violation of federal law — by helping the Saudis escape blame for Jamal Khashoggi’s death.

He also said Trump may have committed the same crime by helping Russian president Vladimir Putin evade responsibility for cyberattacks against the U.S. during the 2016 presidential election.

“There’s a specific name for what the president has said & done in connection with both the murder of Mr. Khashoggi & in Helsinki when he vouched for Putin’s denial of cyber-attacking our elections: it called Accessory After the Fact, 18 U.S. Code section 3,” Kirschner tweeted.


'Unbelievable': Trump family expert reveals the president's callous and cruel treatment of one of hi

16 OCT 2018 AT 00:01 ET

Appearing on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” Monday night, reporter Emily Jane Fox argued that there’s something truly “unbelievable” about the way recent reports reveal President Donald Trump has treated his son Eric.

She was discussing the way the president reportedly directed Eric Trump to handle the legal response to the claims and lawsuit brought by Stormy Daniels, who says she had an affair with Donald Trump. Daniels sued to break a hush money contract she had signed, which has since become the center of campaign finance violations that the president’s former lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to in court. Cohen said he was directed to carry out the crime by the president himself during the 2016 campaign.

The Wall Street Journal first reported Eric Trump’s role in legal response to Daniels’ claims, which Fox has since confirmed. Eric Trump is currently heading up the Trump Organization along with his brother Donald Trump Jr., supposedly in their father’s absence from the business. However, there appears to be much less separation between the business and the White House than had been promised.

Fox, who has written a book on the Trump family, pointed out that the president’s involvement of Eric in the Daniels affair was a stunning move — one that shows a callousness and a disregard for his son’s wellbeing.

She explained: “If you’re the president, and you’re a parent, you’re going to stick your child in the middle of cleaning up something for the president of the United States that has to do with an affair your father had — allegedly — with a porn star four months after your half-brother was born. So not only are you potentially putting your son in whatever legal implications could come out of this—”

'Only a baby says he's not a baby': Colbert lampoons Trump's 60 Minutes interview by giving him a 'b

16 OCT 2018 AT 00:07 ET

Late-night host Stephen Colbert did his own “60 Minutes” interview with President Donald Trump during his Monday night episode of “The Late Show.”

Armed with his green-screen, Colbert “sat down with the president” and noted that Trump has been in office for two years.

“There’s something really terrible and disgusting about that,” Trump responded.

“Oh, I agree,” Colbert said. “How would you sum up your administration so far?”

He clipped the segment of the Trump interview where the president talked about how “vicious and full of lies” politics is.

“Speaking of which, if you get rid of Jeff Sessions, who would you replace him with?” Colbert asked.

Civil rights icon John Lewis endorses Aftab Pureval: He's 'ready to fight the fight'

By Tommy Christopher - October 15, 2018

While Steve Chabot campaigned with the racist-in-chief, his opponent was being endorsed by legendary Rep. John Lewis.

While Rep. Steve Chabot (R-OH) spent his weekend standing by Trump as he praised confederate General Robert E. Lee, Democrat Aftab Pureval stood with civil rights hero Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), and received a powerful endorsement.

At a “Rock Your Vote” rally in Avondale, Ohio, Sunday, Lewis spoke about growing up so poor that his family could only afford burial insurance, and could not afford to get sick.

“President Obama and the Democratic members of the Congress gave us the Affordable Care Act,” Lewis said, then turned to Pureval and added, “This young brother will stand up and support the [Affordable Care] Act. Vote for it. Fight for it. And that’s why we need him in the Congress today.”

“He’s smart, strong, young, and ready to fight the fight,” Lewis continued. “I believe in standing up. And I believe in standing with people who will stand up and be brave, bold, and courageous.”

GOP abandons all hope that failed tax scam will help them win votes

By Dan Desai Martin - October 15, 2018

Republicans would rather hide their record of helping the wealthy and leaving the middle class behind.

Turns out Republicans know their tax scam — running up trillion-dollar deficits to supply handouts to billionaires and Wall Street banks — won’t do them any favors during the midterm elections.

A tax scam heavily tilted toward the rich is barely mentioned in ads from the Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF), a Republican-aligned dark money group that spends millions of dollars trying to shore up a failing Republican majority.

Out of more than 31,000 ads the group has aired, a mere 17 percent refer to the tax scam, reports Bloomberg.

“The data underscore concerns among Republicans that the 2017 tax law — championed by President Donald Trump and GOP congressional leaders — hasn’t gained traction with voters ahead of the Nov. 6 election that will determine control of the House and Senate.”

GOP megadonors desperately try to save racist nominee for governor of Florida

By Bernie Dennler III - October 15, 2018

Rep. Ron DeSantis’ racist comments are not keeping wealthy conservative donors away from his Florida campaign for governor.

Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis has made headlines for all the wrong reasons lately in his campaign for governor of Florida.

First, he kicked off the general election by suggesting voters would “monkey this up” if they elect his African-American opponent, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum.

Then, DeSantis was revealed to be a moderator of an aggressively bigoted Facebook group — and the author of a book excusing slavery.

Despite this, super-rich Republican donors are embracing DeSantis. His struggling campaign against Gillum got a major financial boost this month, thanks to millions of dollars in contributions from wealthy individuals.

Outside groups caught lying to prop up vulnerable GOP congressman

By Dan Desai Martin - October 15, 2018

Rep. Troy Balderson's campaign is struggling — so an outside group is pouring money into false ads attacking Democrat Danny O'Connor.

Outside interest groups are resorting to false and misleading ads against Democratic candidate Danny O’Connor in order to support Rep. Troy Balderson’s struggling campaign.

Balderson, an Ohio Republican, squeaked out a slim victory over O’Connor during an August special election in a district that supported Trump by double digits. But to keep his seat, Balderson still has to survive a rematch with O’Connor when voters go to the polls on Nov. 6.

In a “misleading slam” of an ad, as the Columbus Dispatch put it, the Republican group Defending Main Street is attempting to turn voters against O’Connor using misinformation and anti-immigrant xenophobia.

The ad falsely claims O’Connor supports making Columbus a “sanctuary city for illegal immigrants.” O’Connor has not, in fact, come out in support of this.


I hope there is an ad out there attacking this POS, that because of his vote to increase the debt to 3.8 trillion that will and squarely on gutting Social Security and Medicare.....................for the million s living across this country and Ohio..............

GOP nominee complains that ethics rules are 'road to full socialism'

By Oliver Willis - October 15, 2018

Florida GOP nominee Manny Diaz Jr. opted for an extreme scare tactic to fight against any new ethics rules that might affect him.

A Florida state representative heavily involved with charter schools, who has for years benefited financially from legislation he helped pass, said new ethics rules would send his state on a “road to full socialism.”

Republican Manny Diaz Jr. is running for the seat in Florida District 36.

While serving in the Florida House, Diaz also serves as Chief Operating Officer for Doral College, which makes money from charter schools. At the same time, Diaz has used his role in the legislature to push an education agenda tilted toward the charter school industry.

In other words, when Diaz votes for charter school demands, he helps to enrich himself.


So Manny, can I call you Manny................did you read the book Nancy MacLean , Democracy in Chains...................it spells out how your libertarian concept of what James Buchanan did in the late 50's and 60's when it came to Prince William County, VA and the state legislature when it attacked public education, and your fucking Koch asshole is trying to do it now.

Aand now the country has a Dept. Ed. head from Michigan that really fucked over the public education system and the put in a charter system she put in place is failing the students, but she made a buck, did you buy chance see her yacht........................your one of the assholes protecting the haves and and attacking the have not mentality right..............
