Carville: Bernie's Rise "Doesn't Make Any Sense," Why Would Party Nominate Someone Who "Isn't Even A Democrat?"

Longtime Democratic strategist James Carville poses this question to MSNBC’s Chris Hayes about Bernie Sanders: “Why would the Democrats nominate someone who’s not even a Democrat?” JAMES CARVILLE: We’ve had two enormously successful Democratic administrations: Clinton and Obama. We’ve had a disasterous Republican administration in the middle of all this. The Republican Party is cracking up right in front of our eyes; So about 40% of the Democratic Party’s answer to this is, ‘hey, let’s nominate someone who isn’t even a Democrat.’ It utterly makes no sense to me. Somebody has to explain it… Why would we abandon these policies now? I have no idea. … Read entire article »

O'Reilly: Ted Cruz Will Offer Kasich the VP Slot Before RNC Convention Begins

Both Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders have new momentum tonight after beating their opposition by wide margins in Wisconsin. The media running wild with speculation about what the vote really means. Let’s calm down. First of all Bernie Sanders will not defeat Hillary Clinton for the presidential nomination. Wisconsin is a largely white state and minority voters are breaking big for Mrs. Clinton, who will win the New York primary with room to spare. Senator Sanders is waging a spirited campaign, but the fix is in. The super-delegates, who can vote for anyone they want, are large for Hillary. End of story. On the Republican side it’s a bit different. Donald Trump remains the frontrunner and will also do well in New York. That might re-charge his campaign, but maybe not. Last night after losing in Wisconsin, Mr. Trump … Read entire article »

Roger Stone: "We Will Disclose The Hotels And The Room Numbers Of Delegates Directly Involved In The Steal"

Roger Stone speaks on “Freedomain” radio about hunting down anti-Trump delegates at the national convention. Earlier this week Stone talked about a convention “day of rage” where rogue delegations would be hunted down. ROGER STONE: If Trump does not run the table on the rest of the primaries and the caucuses, we’re looking at a very, very narrow path in which the kingmakers go all out to cheat, to steal, and to snatch this nomination from the candidate who is overwhelmingly selected by the voters, which is why I have urged Trump supporters: come to Cleveland. March on Cleveland. Join us in the Forest City. We’re going to have protests, demonstrations. We will disclose the hotels and the room numbers of those delegates who are directly involved in the steal. If … Read entire article »

Tavis Smiley: "I Am Tired Of Black Voters Being Taken For Granted By One Party"

Author and host Tavis Smiley joins Morning Joe to discuss why Donald Trump could appeal to African-American voters, why Democrats can’t take the black vote for granted. “Well, I am tired of black voters being taken for granted by one party and ignored by the other party so it was a clarion call to Democrats to not do that this time around. We all know the conventional wisdom left the building before the train ever left the station. So anything could happen this time around. I just don’t want Democrats to take the black vote for granted,” Smiley said Wednesday morning on MSNBC. “The Clintons have a long-term relationship with the African-American community there’s the sense that the black political establishment rallying around her suggests that there’s going to be just lockstep … Read entire article »

GOP Sen. Grassley on Politicizing Supreme Court: Chief Justice John Roberts "Part Of Problem"

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, took to the Senate floor Tuesday to give a statement on the public perception of the Supreme Court. SEN. CHUCK GRASSLEY: Mr. President, a significant number of Americans believe the Supreme Court is highly politicized. Its approval rating has fallen over the years. Not surprisingly, its approval rating has dropped most drastically in recent years following the President’s appointment of Justices Sotomayor and Kagan. There are four Justices who vote in a liberal way in effectively every case the public follows. There are two Justices who stick to the constitutional text and vote in a consistently conservative way. One Justice votes mostly but not always in a conservative way. And one Justice votes sometimes with … Read entire article »

Ray Lewis Blasts Black Lives Matter For Ignoring Black-on-Black Crime: Do Black Lives Really Matter?

Former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis posted a video on his Facebook page over the weekend where he ripped the Black Lives Matter movement for ignoring the problem of “black men killing black men.” In his heartfelt video commentary Lewis called out the movement for making black people feel victimized while “every day we have black-on-black crime killing each other.” Lewis said there aren’t any riots over this problem. “Why do we always find ourselves the victims, and now we have the separation once again that we’re being victimized because of one bad white cop, two bad white cops, three bad white cops, killing a young black brother. But every day we have black-on-black crime, killing each other?” Lewis asked in the video. “The March murder rate rose by 29 percent, but … Read entire article »

Former "Anarchist" City Commissioner Tells Off Gov. Rick Scott Over Obamacare In A Florida Starbucks

Gov. Rick Scott got an earful from an angry citizen at a Florida Starbucks Wednesday morning. ABC Action News in Tampa Bay describes the woman as “a stay at home mom from Lake Worth who works part time.” The Palm Beach Post notes that she is actually Cara Jennings, a former Lake Worth city commissioner and self-described “anarchist cheerleader.” In a 2006 interview, Jennings described her youth as an activist anarchist cheerleader and why she decided to run for office. “The practical reality,” she said in 2006. “Is that in Lake Worth there’s not a large anarchist community, and there’s not even a large progressive community. So in order to make a better impact, I decided to run for office. I don’t think it was the most anarchist thing to do, … Read entire article »
