    Left-wing pop superstar Cher believes Democrats are the only thing standing in the way of the GOP achieving what she says is the party’s “dream of white supremacy,” contending “they bring Jim Crow back” despite the fact that Democrats historically introduced, supported, and championed Jim Crow Laws in the U.S. “’VOTER SUPPRESSION,'” Cher began. “2 Words That Define Immoral Republican Pols.

    ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin told her co-hosts Monday on ABC’s “The View” that former President Donald Trump has made the Republican Party “morally bankrupt” during a panel discussion about the federal investigation into Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) alleged sexual relationship with a 17-year-old. Hostin said, “I think this is out of the playbook of the disgrace former twice impeached one-term president. This is someone who changed the very moral fabric of the Republican Party. The Republican Party is no longer the party of family values. It’s the insurrection party. It is the party that’s morally bankrupt. There was a president who, you know, paid off porn stars, who cheated on his wife, who was thrice married, who did all these reprehensible things and still had these cult-like followers. His playbook was deny, deny, deny the world of alternative facts, the world of gaslight, gaslight, gaslight.” She continued, “When you change...
    Ever since Donald Trump managed to get 74 million votes last November, congressional Republicans have been obsessed with recreating that type of inflated turnout in subsequent election cycles despite the fact that Joe Biden beat Trump by 7 million votes. In fact, finding a way to lock in all those Trump voters has become some sort of white whale for the GOP.  As never-Trump Republican and The Bulwark founder Sarah Longwell told Markos and me on The Brief, Republicans are absolutely transfixed by that level of GOP turnout. "It’s 74 million—they always say 75 million, but the reason they keep saying it over like it’s a mantra is they can’t believe that many people turned out for them," she explained. But the vexing problem for Republicans now is: How can they possibly recreate 2020 turnout levels when Trump—the guy who lured a new slice of blue-collar voters into the party—is increasingly disengaged, and the corporatists running the party have...
    The Marriner S. Eccles Federal Reserve building stands in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Tuesday, Aug. 18, 2020.Erin Scott | Bloomberg via Getty Images The Federal Reserve has come a long way from the days of warning about "irrational exuberance." Former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan famously sent up a flare in December 1996 about stretched asset valuations triggered by wild dotcom speculation that had produced an unbridled bull market. It took three years for the warning from "The Maestro" to come true, but the statement is still considered a seminal moment in market history where a Fed leader issued such a bold warning that went unheeded. Flash forward 25 years and the attitude from the Fed is considerably different, even though market valuations look a lot like they did back around the time the dotcom bubble first. Central bank officials repeatedly have been given the opportunity to advise caution on asset...
    After four years of Trumpism, we’ve learned that Trumpism has very few core tenets except lower taxes for the wealthy and that government is bad. Some people like Rand Paul have been running on “government is bad” their entire careers, but the problem with being a member of the government who wants to destroy the government is that when a problem arises that the government could theoretically fix, you can’t participate because you would be encouraging the use of government. Yes, this Republican Party is filled with men of no action. Meet the Helpless Caucus—a group of laissez-faire nihilists who want you vote so they can crush the government you’d like them to run. This was on full display on Tuesday during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on gun violence, when Texas Senator and Cancun visitor and Ritz Carlton stayer Ted Cruz said, “Every time there’s a shooting, we play...
    The open wound in the bosom of Cs worsens and threatens to bleed the party. On Saturday, the former Secretary of Organization of Cs, Fran Hervías, one of the strong men on Albert Rivera’s stage, announced that he was leaving the party. His announcement came just 24 hours after it was confirmed that the motion of censure for oranges in the Region of Murcia will fail. And not only that: you boiled confirmed that same day his signing for the PP, which means opening wide the floodgates of Cs for the landing of positions in the popular formation. Despite the fact that Hervías was no longer secretary of Cs Organization – he left the post after the electoral collapse of November 2019 -, his knowledge of the guts of the orange party means that his move to the PP is a very serious blow for the formation of Inés...
    It’s fitting that this year’s CPAC conference is being held in Orlando, a land of make-believe where thousands of folks travel each year to gawk at a surly, splotchy whale flailing around with no real purpose other than to wow a small cross-section of Americans who’ve grown bored with taunting the three-legged goat at their local petting zoo. I mean, one of the speakers is a high-profile member of a right-wing Japanese cult that believes its leader is the reincarnated spirit of an alien from Venus who created all life on Earth millions of years ago. Sure, that’s still less bonkers than believing Donald Trump was a good president, but it gives you some idea of the kinds of people they’re letting in these days. I mean, larval-stage Brundlefly would have given a better speech than Ted Cruz did Friday, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t welcomed with open arms. (Okay, with icy stares, sneering contempt, and the...
    Republicans went on the offensive during day three of Conservative Political Action Conference, with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy asserting that the GOP would get the majority back in the House while Rep. Lauren declared that Democrats were the party of 'no' and Gov. Kristi Noem slammed Dr. Fauci as being wrong 'a lot.' Speaking with American Conservative Union Chair Matt Schlapp and Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), McCarthy claimed that there was 'no chance' of Democrats keeping control of the majority of the House next year.   'We're going to get the majority back. We're five seats away,' he said, according to Newsweek. 'I would bet my house. My personal house. Don't tell my wife, but I will bet it. This is the smallest majority the Democrats have had in 100 years.' House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (center) claimed Saturday that there was 'no chance' of Democrats keeping control of the...
    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy accused Rep. Liz Cheney of engaging in 'cancel culture' after she told reporters former President Donald Trump should have 'no role in the future of the party or the country.'  McCarthy appeared on Fox News Channel Thursday and was specifically asked about Cheney's comments.   'The idea that a Republican would join with the cancel culture I just think is wrong, it's beyond just having a difference in opinion,' McCarthy answered, after also acknowledging that the GOP was a 'big tent' party.  House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy accused Rep. Liz Cheney of engaging in 'cancel culture' when she suggested former President Donald Trump should be ousted from politics  On Wednesday, top House Republicans Liz Cheney (left) and Kevin McCarthy (right) publicly clashed over the role of former President Donald Trump in the GOP On Thursday, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (right) appeared on...
    The Conversation Spain Brexit, the never ending story Shutterstock / rawf8 Four and a half years after the start of negotiations that brought down governments and shaken markets, on January 1 Brexit finally became a reality. After 47 years of British presence in the EU, the terms of separation were agreed broadly. But both parties will continue to haggle over the small details of the first departure of a member state of the community family. Many warn that the deal may turn into endless Brexit. The divorce has been harder than soft, since it was decided that the former partners maintained a controlled relationship. The UK barely got any concessions: its financial services do not enjoy special access, there is no automatic recognition of academic qualifications, very onerous import requirements have been imposed on some of its products and regulations that could damage many supply chains British production and logistics...
    Thursday, Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA) said on FNC’s “Fox & Friends First” that he believes President Donald Trump will continue to be “a mover and shaker” in the GOP even after he leaves the White House. This comes as Trump and members of GOP leadership battle over the stimulus check amount sent out to individuals in the latest coronavirus relief bill. According to Hice, the GOP is not “hinging on what happens” with the checks. He added, “there is no doubt” Trump, who was viewed as an outsider when he announced his presidential bid in 2016, has “changed the face of the Republican Party.” “I don’t think the Republican Party is hinging on what happens with stimulus checks,” Hice advised. “Right now, at least what I’m hearing in Georgia and my district, in particular, are concerns over election security and the fact that if we lose the security in the elections,...
    And when I said there was no fraud in our elections, I now realize I mean to say that there was no fraud that I personally am responsible for, but if y'all want to spit and froth about conspiracies in general I will sign my name to whatever you want. As the Georgia runoff elections near, Republican Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger continues to be blamed by conspiracy-peddling Republicans like Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Sen. David Perdue, the state's two insider-trading senators who remain desperate after not getting quite enough votes to dodge a runoff with their Democratic opponents. He has also been targeted by Donald Trump, who similarly claims that the only possible reason he could have lost the state is because something something massive fraud. Raffensperger has vigorously batted down those theories, presumably because he still wants to maintain a political career and isn't interested in being...
    Donald Trump and GOP Senate Leader Mitch McConnell After Mitt Romney lost the 2012 presidential election by 5 million votes, the Republican National Committee commissioned an autopsy report recommending ways for the party to expand its umbrella and welcome more voters into the fold.  The 100-page document was a stunning rebuke of the party's treatment of immigrants, women, and LGBTQ Americans. And, astonishingly, it identified what it called "epistemic closure"—the party's hermetically sealed fever swamps—as dooming its ability to grow its ranks.  “The Republican Party needs to stop talking to itself,” read the document. “We have become expert in how to provide ideological reinforcement to like-minded people, but devastatingly we have lost the ability to be persuasive with, or welcoming to, those who do not agree with us on every issue. Instead of driving around in circles on an ideological cul-de-sac, we need a Party whose brand of conservatism invites...
    Mathew Brady/National Archives and Records AdministrationJohn Quincy Adams held his grudge against Andrew Jackson for so long that, years later, he boycotted a ceremony awarding Jackson an honorary degree from Harvard, even though JQA was on the Harvard faculty at the time.In an excellent piece in the journal “Democracy,” Sean Wilentz, a professor of history at Princeton who specializes in the early years of the American republic, reminds us of the first two U.S. presidents who were defeated in a bid for reelection. They were a father and son, John and John Quincy Adams, defeated respectively by Thomas Jefferson in 1800 and by Andrew Jackson in 1828. Neither Adams was particularly gracious about it. The first Adams whined that the election of Jefferson by a mere 73 to 65 margin in the Electoral College, made him feel that “we have no Americans in America.” John Quincy Adams held his grudge...
    Gregoria CaroFOLLOWMadrid Updated: 11/16/2020 3:43 PM Save The message of Ciudadanos (Cs) is inflexible to support the final draft of the General State Budget for 2021. «There are two ways and it will be Mr. Sánchez who has to decide between some Budgets for all Spaniards or some Budgets for a few ». The party maintains that what is “responsible” is to offer the country an alternative to the pact with ERC and Bildu. This has been expressed by the national spokesperson for Cs, Melisa Rodriguez, during the press conference after the usual meeting of the party’s Standing Committee held every Monday. He has also added that they will not make it “easy” for the government. The same message as the party president, Inés Arrimadas, has defended on TVE. Cs wants to put the PSOE on the ropes because they also believe that in...
    Tracking coronavirus case surges in the United States No tourists allowed: Countries still keeping travelers out during Covid-19 World No. 2 Jon Rahm makes it a party of five atop the Masters leaderboard AUGUSTA, Ga. – On the eve of the 84th Masters, Jon Rahm received a short-game lesson from two-time champion Jose-Maria Olazabal. Rahm won’t say what his fellow Spaniard and short-game wizard told him, but after chipping in for par 5 at 15, Rahm, said, “He saved me a couple of shots.” © Provided by Golfweek Rahm made a short birdie putt at 13 and parred in from there to cap off a 6-under 66 and join the party of five at the top of the leaderboard at 9-under 135.

    Bill Blum October 18, 2020 8:00AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Independent Media Institute. Should the 25th Amendment be invoked to remove Donald Trump from office? In a press conference on October 9, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Congressman Jamie Raskin unveiled legislation based on the amendment that would establish a bipartisan commission that could answer the question and determine if Trump has the capacity to discharge the powers and duties of his office. The commission would have 16 members, selected in equal numbers by Democratic and Republican congressional leaders, and would include four physicians and four psychiatrists. The remaining members would consist of eight retired statespersons (either former presidents, vice presidents, Cabinet secretaries, or surgeons general). The appointed members would then select a 17th panelist to act as chair of the commission. Once the commission is formed, Congress could pass a concurrent resolution, directing it to conduct an examination of the president. : Formally enrolled...
    DVVALENCIA Updated: 07/23/2020 09: 37h Save “No irregularity with criminal relevance is observed.” Case closed by fast track. The Valencia Provincial Prosecutor’s Office has filed the complaint for alleged illegal financing filed against Vox in Valencia for not covering the facts “characters of criminal offense”, without prejudice to forwarding a copy of the complaint to the Court of Auditors in case it appreciates an administrative offense. The complaint was filed on July 8 by a former administration of the training chaired by Santiago Abascal in Valencia, which alleged that the party had received donations in violation of the regulation on financing of political parties and accused those responsible for the party in Valencia, Jose Maria Llanos and Joaquín Díaz , to manage «a box B» to pay for meals, outings and events. Llanos himself denied the accusations, which have now been disrupted by the Public Ministry. The Prosecutor’s...
    After he has repeatedly survived the unsurvivable, we are supposed to believe that President Trump might quit the presidential race before it truly begins because of a spate of negative polling. This is the latest chatter among (unnamed) Republicans, according to a widely circulated Fox News report and cable news talking heads. Trump is a volatile figure, and things could get weird if he is far behind in the final weeks. But the idea that he is going to fall on his sword because the conventional wisdom has turned sharply against his chances runs counter to everything we know about him. Good luck convincing him he is going to lose after he survived the “Access Hollywood” tape that had GOP officeholders deserting him in droves — and after he prevailed on an election night when many people closest to him thought he was sure to go down to defeat. There...
    (CNN)The Republican National Committee executive committee unanimously approved a plan on Wednesday night to significantly scale down the convention proceedings that will take place in Charlotte later this summer and to make no changes to the party's 2016 platform, a party spokesman told CNN.The rule changes come as Republicans -- angered by the fact that Democratic North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper is not prepared to guarantee them a full-fledged convention due to the ongoing coronavirus -- search for an alternate convention location where state officials will allow President Donald Trump to accept the party's nomination before a large crowd.The party is contractually obligated to keep some portion of the convention in the North Carolina city, but the vote on Wednesday night will substantially pair down the official business, with each state and territory only sending six delegates to the gathering, for a total of 336 delegates where there would have...
