Hillary Clinton considers all-female ticket


Hillary Clinton is considering selecting another woman as her vice presidential running mate, according to campaign officials.

Following her convincing win over her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders in New York last week, she has already begun turning her attention to November's general election.

This offers the intriguing possibility of not just the first female party nominee but the prospect of an all-woman ticket.

This week, John Podesta, her campaign chairman, told the Boston Globe that women would certainly be on the list of possible vice-presidential candidates: “We’ll start with a broad list and then begin to narrow it. But there is no question that there will be women on that list,” he said.  More

VA Gov Gives 200,000 Felons Voting Rights To Help Clinton


Gov. Terry McAuliffe signed an executive order Friday restoring the voting rights of 206,000 ex-felons, a sweeping action the governor said was aimed largely at rectifying Virginia's "long and sad history" of suppressing African-American voting power.

The move, coming in a presidential election year, outraged Republicans who accused McAuliffe of abusing his power to help longtime ally Hillary Clinton win a battleground state by putting more likely Democratic voters on the books.

The governor's order applies to all violent and nonviolent felons who had finished their sentence and supervised release as of Friday even those who have not applied for a restoration of rights. Previous Virginia governors have restored rights on an individual basis, but none have done it for an entire category of offenders with one pen stroke.  More

DC Capitol quietly removes ALL state flags and replaces them with coins to sidestep row over Mississippi's Confederate cross


House Republicans have sidestepped the divisive fight over displays of the Confederate battle flag at the U.S. Capitol with plans to put up state coins instead.

Rep. Candice Miller, R-Mich., who heads the House Administration Committee, announced on Thursday that reproductions of commemorative quarters depicting the 50 states, District of Columbia and the territories will line the wall between the Capitol and the Rayburn House Office Building.

'A print of each state's commemorative coin will be tastefully displayed for this highly trafficked area, as each quarter serves as a reminder of the ideals, landmarks and people from each state, as well as this nation's great motto, 'out of many, one,'' Miller said in a statement.  More

Hamilton to stay on $10; Tubman replacing Jackson


Treasury Secretary Jack Lew on Wednesday will announce plans to both keep Alexander Hamilton on the front of the $10 bill and to knock Andrew Jackson off the front of the $20 in favor of Harriet Tubman, sources tell POLITICO.

Lew is expected to roll out a set of changes that also include putting leaders of the women’s suffrage movement on the back of the $10 bill, and incorporating civil rights era leaders and other important moments in American history into the $5 bill.

Also, Jackson isn’t getting completely booted off the $20 bill. He’s likely to remain on the back.  More

45% of Americans pay no federal income tax


Many Americans don’t have to worry about giving Uncle Sam part of their hard-earned cash for their income taxes this year.

An estimated 45.3% of American households — roughly 77.5 million — will pay no federal individual income tax, according to data for the 2015 tax year from the Tax Policy Center, a nonpartisan Washington-based research group.

Roughly half pay no federal income tax because they have no taxable income, and the other roughly half get enough tax breaks to erase their tax liability, explains Roberton Williams, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center.  More

TSA under fire for spending $47,600 on app that points left or right


The Transportation Security Administration came under fire Wednesday after it emerged the agency spent $47,000 on an app that points left or right -- something tech experts say could have been created by a novice coder in a day.

According to documents obtained by a Freedom of Information Act request by developer Kevin Burke, the TSA paid $336,413 as part of a larger $1.4 million contract with IBM. 

A TSA spokesman later told Mashable that $47,600 was paid for developing the app and the $336,000 was awarded in a 2013 contract more generally for “mobile application development.”  More

Americans spend more on taxes than food, clothing, housing combined


A tax advocacy group on Wednesday revealed that Americans spend more on taxes than their whole budget for food, clothing and housing.

The Tax Foundation, in its annual report on when the nation as a whole has earned enough to pay its taxes, announced the date as April 24.

"Tax Freedom Day gives us a vivid representation of how much federal, state, and local tax revenue is collected each year to pay for government goods and services," said Tax Foundation Analyst Scott Greenberg.  More

NYU students who back Trump afraid to show their faces


NYU’s pro-Trump students fear for their safety — and grades.

They may be flooding caucus rooms across the country, but Donald Trump supporters at NYU keep their heads down, mouths shut and their correspondence secret.

Lying in class about their political beliefs and keeping online conversations strictly private are typical precautions taken by The Donald’s badly outnumbered followers on campus.

“Supporters generally try to keep it hidden from the rest of the student body,” said junior Dylan Perera, 22. “They’re afraid of losing friends, being ridiculed in class, getting worse grades and are even afraid of being assaulted and physically hurt.”  More

VIDEO: WH Censors French President Saying ‘ISLAMIST Terrorism’


The White House website has censored a video of French Pres. Francois Hollande saying that “Islamist terrorism” is at the “roots of terrorism.”

The White House briefly pulled video of a press event on terrorism with Pres. Obama, and when it reappeared on the WhiteHouse.gov website and YouTube, the audio of Hollande’s translator goes silent, beginning with the words “Islamist terrorism,” then begins again at the end of his sentence.

Even the audio of Hollande saying the words “Islamist terrorism” in French have, apparently, been edited from the video.  More

Florida prosecutor who brought battery charges against Donald Trump’s campaign manager is a Hillary supporter


An article published by the Palm Beach Post on Nov. 17, 2015, has been circulating since Tuesday evening because it lists Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg (picture) as a member 150-member Florida Leadership Council, which was established by the Democratic Party to promote Hillary Clinton’s presidential candidacy.

The article states that Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg and Tax Collector Anne Gannon “are also part of Clinton’s Florida team.”

Mike Cernovich, writing Tuesday in the blog DangerAndPlay.com, cited the Palm Beach Post article in arguing the charges against Lewandowski were politically motivated. He contended “there was no assault,” because reporter Michelle Fields “was heading towards Trump and was brushed away due to security concerns.”  More

Obama dances while Brussels burns

In Brussels police are still desperately hunting a dangerous terrorist after he fled a triple-suicide bombing in the city that left 34 dead, as officials search for news on U.S. citizens who went missing during the attack and medics tend to nine more Americans lying wounded in hospitals.

Meanwhile in Buenos Aires President Barack Obama was dancing the night away with wife Michelle at a glitzy state dinner alongside Argentine President Mauricio Macri and his first lady Juliana Awada as part of a two-day state visit.

Despite increasing calls from the likes of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz for the President to return home in the wake of the Brussels attack, Obama showed his determination to carry on regardless Wednesday night.

At the end of the state dinner, the Obamas were pulled abruptly onto the dance floor by a pair of Latin dancers providing the entertainment.

At first, the woman in the shimmering gold dress seemed content to twirl with her partner, but then she made a beeline for the president and beckoned him to the floor.  More

UTAH CAUCUS: First hand insider report - Incompetence, Manipulation, and Ballot Stuffing!!!


Just got back from my caucus... My head is still spinning.

Check in was slow but reasonably controlled. Super-long lines. I've never seen turnout like this.

Got my credentials, but no presidential ballot. They said those would be delivered to our caucus room.

Got to my caucus room. I counted about 120 people there (no idea how many were actually registered and credentialed).

We elected Precinct Officers, State Delegates, and County Delegates - the typical incompetence and ignorance of the rules you'd expect to see from volunteers, but all went somewhat smooth.

...Then came the Presidential Ballot.  More

Smiling Obama ignores calls to cut short Cuba trip and even does The Wave at baseball game - before jetting off with his family to Argentina


President Obama was all smiles this afternoon as he watched an exhibition baseball game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cuban national baseball team - just hours after ISIS terrorists killed at least 34 people in Brussels.

Settling down with wife Michelle, daughters Sasha and Malia and Cuban dictator Raul Castro, Obama appeared carefree as he enjoyed the game - ignoring calls to cut short his historic trip to return to Washington and lead the response.

Indeed, despite criticism that he only devoted one minute of his speech earlier in the day to the Belgian atrocities, Obama took the time to give a somewhat surreal 15-minute interview to ESPN about the threat posed by ISIS - keeping his $500 shades on throughout the spot.  More

5 Reasons Obama Should Be Ashamed To Take A Photo In Front Of A Che Guevara Memorial




Barack Obama is the first President to visit the communist dictatorship of Cuba in 88 years.

He does so under extreme controversy, given that the Castro brothers still rule the island nation with an authoritarian grip.

After Obama’s arrival, he participated in a wreath-laying ceremony in Revolution Square, the site of large Communist Party rallies. The Square is also flanked by enormous “heroes” of the bloody Cuban Revolution.

One of those massive, building sized iron murals is of Che Guevara.  More

Bill Clinton slams 'awful legacy of the last eight years'


Former President Bill Clinton slammed what he called the "awful legacy of the last eight years" during a campaign appearance for his wife, Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, in Washington state Monday.

Clinton made the remarks at an event in Spokane ahead of Saturday's Washington state Democratic caucuses.

"If you believe we’ve finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us," Clinton said, "and the seven years before that when we were practicing trickle-down economics and no regulation in Washington, which is what caused the crash, then you should vote for her."  More

PROMISE OF FREE MEDICAL CARE

AND DENYING DISABLITY TO THOSE

PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY TORN

APART FOR NO GOOD REASON

IN POLITICAL WARS!

Our retired seniors,

Living on a 'fixed income, have their

taxes raised to send to these countries and also

are having medical benefits cut.

Our own citizens receive NO aid

YET ..........

they will have a 'Benefit' Show

for the people of Haiti, on 12 TVStations ;

Ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents,

clothes, bedding, doctors, and medical supplies.

Now Just Imagine if 

our own *GOVERNMENT *

gave 'US' the same support they give to foreign countries.

Sad, isn't it?

99% of people won't have the 'chutzpah' to forward this.

WELL, I'm one of the 1% who Just Did

Barack Obama and Cuban dictator Raul Castro shook hands Monday in Havana’s Palace of the Revolution, a stunning, historic moment for the former Cold War enemies, and the first time an American president visited in 88 years.

But if the meeting didn’t anger Obama’s critics enough, Obama also posed for a photo op in front of a massive sculpture of notorious revolutionary and mass murderer Che Guevara.  More
