http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/first-read/brink-repeal-obamacare-has-never-been-more-popular-n707806 As Republicans get closer to repealing it, President Barack Obama's federal health-care law - or Obamacare - has never been more popular, according to results from a new national NBC News/Wall Street Journal. And half of Americans - 50 percent - say they have little to no confidence that Republican proposals to replace the law will make things better. The poll finds 45 percent...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0o0YMiTrrzY Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign manager, David Plouffe, said Monday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe there is a 100 percent chance that Hillary Clinton will win the election in November.

Why the left hates Trump so intensely


By:  @xxjefferson51, 3 days ago

Latest By:  @gunny, 3 hours ago

The intensity of the hatred for a newly elected president faced by Donald Trump is equaled only by the reaction of the Confederacy to the election of Abraham Lincoln. That ended up in civil war, a precedent that one hopes will not be equaled. But there has been a remarkable fury at people who do not shun Trump: boycotts of a company whose shareholder contributed to a PAC supporting Trump, attempts to pressure the president of a historically black college to prevent its marching band from...

The Assassination of Donald Trump

The Battle of Waterloo was won on the playing fields of Eton. So the old saw goes, referring to the bravery and discipline of the aristocratic officers the British Army, learned while playing rugby against Harrow. The Battle of Watergate was won in the network and newspaper editorial offices. There, “an effete corps of impudent snobs,” as Bill Safire brilliantly put it, launched a media putsch that panicked a nation into the delusion that a microscopic dabble in an insanely pointless...

Democrats who confuse hating Donald Trump with Mom and apple pie as the all-American recipe to win elections are blowing their chances, such as they are, for the 2018 midterm elections. If you’re a Democrat it’s never too soon to fret and stew about the prospects. But Democrats are having so much fun despising the Donald they’re forgetting duty to party and responsibility to exploit opportunity. The party on the outs nearly always picks up a few seats in the midterms. But sore losers...

Are Democrats skipping the inauguration racists?

Latest By:  @johnrussell, 4 hours ago

I was reviewing the list of Democrats who are refusing to attend the Trump inauguration, and I was interested to learn that most of them are non-white. This raises the real question of whether they are refusing to attend Trump's inauguration due to anti-white bias. After all, if 17 white Republicans had refused to attend Obama's inauguration, they would have instantly been labeled racist. So I have to wonder if these 17 "Democrats of color" have a problem with a white Republican...

EPA Moves To Fine Alaskans For Burning Wood To Keep Warm


By:  @community, 6 days ago

Latest By:  @cerenkov, 4 hours ago

Sadly, this is not from The Onion. For satire to work it has to be believable and no one with commonsense would believe that the federal government would intervene to fine people living in Alaska for using wood-burning stoves in the winter. But the advantage that the federal government has is that it does stuff that is so profoundly stupid that no one would ever believe they would do it. And that is their greatest defense mechanism. Just like ‘Verbal’ Kint/Keyser Sose says in T he Usual...

Since Donald Trump’s unexpected victory, Democrats have been trying to delegitimize his historic upset. U.S. Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), who sent shock waves through the media echo chamber this weekend when he said in an NBC interview, “I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president. I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.” Former Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon went on CNN Friday to chime...
