For Gaetz to raise Hunter Biden's substance abuse is 'the pot calling the kettle black,' Johnson saysPosted on Thursday December 12, 2019
Democratic Representative Rashida Tlai on Wednesday blamed "white supremacy" for Tuesday's deadly shooting in Jersey City perpetrated by a couple with suspected ties to a black supremacist group."This is heartbreaking. White supremacy kills," the Michigan Democrat wrote in a since-deleted tweet addressing the shooting. Tlaib deleted her tweet later on Thursday.A man and woman exited a stolen van Tuesday afternoon and fired gunshots into a kosher grocery store in Jersey City, killing a police detective and three others. Investigators believe the couple were former members of the Black Hebrew Israelites, a group known to have antipathy towards white and Jewish people. The couple were shot and killed on the scene.Authorities said the male shooter had previously posted anti-Semitic content online and had targeted the kosher grocery store. Law enforcement investigating Tuesday's shooting also discovered a pipe bomb in the stolen vehicle the couple drove. The male suspect, 47, was an Army veteran previously incarcerated for a weapons offense, and the female suspect, 50, was his girlfriend."From our standpoint, there is no question that this is a hate crime," Jersey City mayor Steven Fulop said.Tlaib, one of the first two Muslim congresswomen, has been vocal in calling out others she believes are engaging in racism, including President Trump."This President targeted people solely based on their ethic background, their faith, disability, sexual orientation and even source of income," the congresswoman charged on Tuesday.
2020 Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer got a warm welcome from every co-host of The View except one on Friday morning. “Mr. Steyer, between you and Mayor Bloomberg, you have now spent $200 million on political ads,” Meghan McCain told their guest. “It hasn't really helped you very much in the polls, but you did make it to the next debate stage. I think you bought your way there, and I don't think it's fair that you’re there and Cory Booker isn't. Change my mind.” After letting out an uncomfortable chuckle, Steyer skirted the question by touting his message about a “broken” government “bought by corporations.” When the candidate pointed out that he has been spending time in the early primary states—unlike that other billionaire—McCain shot back, “Cory Booker has too, who doesn't have $200 million.” “I’m talking about breaking a corporate stranglehold on our government that is preventing it from acting on anything,” Steyer said. “And no one can say that I have been purchased, but I also have 10 years of putting together coalitions like the people in this audience to stand up for our rights and to take on unchecked corporate power that has bought our government.” “But it’s good you have $100 million to buy Facebook ads to get you on a debate stage,” McCain said, interrupting him. “I’m completely unconvinced by this, but we can move on.” Later in the segment, after Steyer vowed to help elect whoever the Democratic nominee ends up being and reminded the hosts that he started “one of the biggest grassroots organizations in the United States,” McCain came back with, “That doesn’t make you a good politician, with all due respect.” “Mayor Bloomberg was mayor for three terms, and so if you’re going to go the billionaire route,” she continued, with a dramatic eye roll, “he's a lot more compelling than you are.” Meghan McCain: Greta Thunberg Didn’t ‘Earn’ Person of the YearRead more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

The GOP has no argument that holds water. The fact that republicans think Trump, for the first time in his entire life, is suddenly worried about corruption when he was just ordered to pay two million dollars for running his charity as a slush fund for him and his corrupt family, who now have to take MANDATORY schooling on how not to run a charity and break the law. Are we also talking about the same corrupt sonofabitch that set up a fake University to defraud people and was ordered to pay 25 million to the victims? Are we talking about the same who was having sex with a porn star for money? All while his newborn was how with his wife? Besides all of that, it is not the President's job to hold money back, its the job of Congress and the Pentagon to do that. The Pentagon assesses and Congress appropriates or doesn't. Not some bumbling idiot talk show host
Trump was the first POTUS to stop the tradition in 50 years because he is a thin-skinned wimp and pussy, pretty simple to see, it's not really like it has to be pointed out to anyone who has been around a 5 year old for very long.
