Wasserman Schultz Warns Trump, Republicans: Attack Bill Clinton At Your Own "Peril"

I think that Donald Trump or any candidate on the other side of the aisle would raise Bill Clinton as somehow a negative to their peril. I think every poll I’ve ever seen shows that if President Clinton were a candidate tomorrow he’d be reelected. He presided at that time over the longest period of sustained prosperity up to that point. Finished his term very popular and continues to be one of the most admired elected officials, and former elected officials, and men in the world. … Read entire article »

Ben Carson On Sandra Bland Trial: "We Have A Tendancy To Inject Race Into Everything"

In response to the Sandra Bland’s trial, GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson says Americans have a tendency to inject race into politics. Carson concedes that there are "rotten police officers†in the same way there are "rotten teachers, rotten doctors, and rotten journalists†but would prefer to use economics to define problems. … Read entire article »

Bernie Sanders: How I Will Appeal To Trump's Angry Working-Class Voters

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, says GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has converted the "legitimate fears†of American citizens and converted them into anger against Muslims and Mexicans. Sanders believes his message of addressing economic inequalities and healthcare coverage gaps appeals to middle class Trump supporters across the country. BERNIE SANDERS: Look, many of Trump’s supporters are working-class people and they’re angry, and they’re angry because they’re working longer hours for lower wages, they’re angry because their jobs have left this country and gone to China or other low-wage countries, they’re angry because they can’t afford to send their kids to college so they can’t retire with dignity. I think what Trump has done successfully I would say is take that anger, take that anxiety about terrorism and say to a lot … Read entire article »

John Kasich: "Everybody's All Hyped Up" About Trump Polls, But I've Done 45 Town Halls In New Hampshire

Ohio Gov. John Kasich responds to Donald Trump’s personal attacks on Hillary Clinton. "It’s a really good top of the story, you know, Trump is rising and everything,†he said. “Wait until we start voting, and then we’re going to know — we’re going to know where people are.” “What Trump does is he complains about everything — these attacks on women, the attacks on Hillary [Clinton] not getting back to the stage on time, the attacks on Hispanics and Muslims,” Kasich said. JON KARL: We now have a situation where Trump and Ted Cruz, the two leading candidates right now, in every poll, both say those 11 million undocumented immigrants should be deported. This is something that for years you, and most Republican leaders said was immpossible, could never happen. Are … Read entire article »

Debbie Wasserman Schultz: Trump Has Brought Presidential Politics To New Lows

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chair of the DNC, responds to Donald Trump’s threats to attack Bill Clinton as a serial sexual abuser if he campaigns for Hillary. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: You know, my assessment of Donald Trump’s candidacy is that he’s been an equal-opportunity insulter. He has engaged in some of the most vulgar invectives and rhetoric and really brought this presidential campaign, its tone and where the debate is on the other side of the aisle to the lowest depths I’ve ever seen. I mean? A presidential campaign. So much so that my own daughters, when seeing his commentary on tv asked me, “mom, why is he so rude”? That’s not what we should strive for in holding up our presidential candidates on either side of the aisle. We’re … Read entire article »

Trump: Bill Clinton "Is Fair Game," His Presidency Was "Very Troubled"

Donald Trump appeared on Fox & Friends early this morning to get a word in before the Sunday shows. He says Hillary Clinton is “playing the woman card” when labeling him a “sexist,” and he defends his similar attacks on Bill. He also says he looks forward to facing the Clintons in the general election, but says that he would not be as prepared to face Bernie Sanders. “I think he is fair game because his presidency was really considered to be very troubled, to put it mildly, because of all of the things that’s she talking to me about,†Trump said about Bill Clinton. “She’s got to be careful, you know, she’s got to be fair,” he said about Hillary, “we all have to fight fairly, and we have to fight … Read entire article »

What the Constitution Really Says About Race and Slavery

What the Constitution Really Says About Race and Slavery

One hundred and fifty years ago this month, the 13th Amendment officially was ratified, and with it, slavery finally was abolished in America. The New York World hailed it as “one of the most important reforms ever accomplished by voluntary human agency.” The newspaper said the amendment “takes out of politics, and consigns to history, an institution incongruous to our political system, inconsistent with justice and repugnant to the humane sentiments fostered by Christian civilization.” With the passage of … Read entire article »

No Way Out: The Forbidden Himalayan Escape Route for Tibetan Refugees From China

No Way Out: The Forbidden Himalayan Escape Route for Tibetan Refugees From China

NAMCHE BAZAR, Nepal—There are a lot of ways to die on the Nangpa La. For one, the altitude can kill you. This is what Tibetan refugees face as they flee China’s oppression: At more than 19,000 feet (roughly the same height as Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa) this mountain pass, which bridges the Himalayas between Nepal and Tibet, is high enough to cause cerebral and pulmonary edema, when the brain or lungs fill with fluid because of oxygen … Read entire article »

How Federal Missteps Make the Case to Transfer Public Lands to States, Localities

How Federal Missteps Make the Case to Transfer Public Lands to States, Localities

A forest fire on national parkland in Washington state in 2014 overtook a young black bear, seriously burning its front paws. This little bear, which would gain world renown, crawled on its elbows out of the massive Carlton Complex fire on land managed by the U.S. Forest Service. Later named Cinder, the malnourished and horribly burned bear was rescued and treated by wildlife officials and volunteers. After months of medical care and physical rehabilitation, officials last June … Read entire article »

You Only Think You Know How Many Illegal Immigrants Live in the US

Call any journalist, pundit, anchor, strategist or lobbyist and ask: 1. How many illegal immigrants are in the United States? 2. What is your source for that number? Almost without exception he or she will answer: 1.  11 million. 2. The Pew Research Center. For a decade now, no number has been given greater certitude and less investigation than that. Not even the number of planets in our solar system has enjoyed such constancy and acceptance. Since so much of the national discourse, debate, culture and treasure hinges on the accuracy of the number 11 million, one would think that some enterprising reporter would seek his Pulitzer by validating or debunking it. Nope. Just unquestioned faith. No curiosity as to the source for that iconic value, or the methodology creating it. So the correct answers are: 1. Nobody really knows. 2. It’s … Read entire article »
