As if we needed it, here is more proof O'Reilly is a massive Donald Trump supporter.
He took Friday off, so Bret Baier hosted for him, and he called in to talk about the mass shooting in Germany. As he was spinning out some right-wing propaganda blaming Obama, he said this:
"Millions of refugees have fled the Middle East and streamed into the open border society of Europe, disrupting life in every way. This is why Donald Trump has been so successful with his message that we will not allow open borders here. But there is evil in America, Trump is tapping in to that, and he has a very good chance of winning this election."And there you have it, all the experts on the electoral college have Trump getting crushed by Hillary Clinton, about 320 to 190, or something like that. But the great Bill O'Reilly just ignores all that, the same way he did when Romney ran against Obama and got crushed 330 to 206.
Have fun in your fantasyland Billy, because Trump has no chance and he will get crushed in November. He might get a lot of votes, but he will lose badly in the electoral college vote, which is the vote that matters.
O'Reilly Slams Ken Burns For Comment About His Friend Trump
By: Steve - July 23, 2016 - 11:00am
So out of the hundreds of people who say bad things about Trump every day in print and on tv, including many Republicans, O'Reilly picked one man, Ken Burns to go after and be an attack dog for Trump, as if he was working for the Trump campaign.
And it's funny how Burns just happens to be a liberal that O'Reilly does not like.
Here are the facts in the story, as in all the stuff O'Reilly never reported, including what Burns actually said about Trump.
Recently, a group of historians gathered on Facebook to share some of their very highly educated opinions about Donald Trump. Needless to say, being actual historians, and firm upholders of our fact-based world, these opinions were not favorable.
How could they be? They are talking about a crazy far-right racist who is running for President while trying to get the whites only vote.
Ken Burns said this about Trump:
"We see nurtured in his campaign an incipient proto-fascism anti-immigrant Know Nothing-ism, a disrespect for the judiciary. The prospect of women losing authority over their own bodies, African Americans asked to go to the back of the line, voter suppression gleefully promoted, jingoistic saber-rattling, a total lack of historical awareness, a political paranoia that, predictably, points fingers, always making the other wrong."Which led Bill O'Reilly to single out Burns, one of the two founding members of Historians on Donald Trump (along with David McCullough), for an uneducated and ill-informed tongue lashing.
Here again, for Trump apologists like O'Reilly it is not Trump's fault that he is acting like a fascist, but rather the fault of those who call attention to it. Being a fascist is okay; calling that person a fascist is a "smear." O'REILLY: I was disappointed with Ken Burns. He is a historian, he knows better. This is a smear tactic that we're seeing far too much of in this campaign.
O'Reilly is right about one thing, saying Ken Burns is a smart guy and a historian, and O'Reilly is neither. He does know better than O'Reilly. And it is not only Burns speaking out about the threat posed by Donald Trump, but other well known and highly respected historians.
It's not as if Burns is the only historian saying those same things, many many others are saying the same thing. But O'Reilly does not like Burns because he is a liberal so he singles him out because of it.
Real historians understand history. Yes, everyone has personal ideologies, and it is impossible to be completely objective, but there is a difference between trying to be objective, as these historians do, and going out of your way to inject bias and to disregard facts in favor of wishful thinking, as does O'Reilly.
Bill O'Reilly got mad at Burns because he fancies himself a historian, even though his alleged histories are more along the lines of historical fiction, and relentlessly panned by actual historians.
The facts are not to GOP-liking and therefore the purveyors of those facts must be condemned and fact labeled a "smear." But O'Reilly said it himself: Burns knows better than O'Reilly, and O'Reilly just proved it.
Here is the real truth, O'Reilly did not like that Burns told the truth about Trump, so he attacked him as a smear merchant, to try and make him look like he has no credibility. This is what O'Reilly does, when someone says something bad about him or his friends, he attacks them and claims they are liars, when in fact they are almost always telling the truth.
And he does it to one guy, while ignoring a thousand other people who are also trashing Trump. It's basically a message to Burns from O'Reilly to keep your mouth shut about Trump, or he is going to use his cable news show to smear you. It's like mob tactics, O'Reilly is sending a message to Burns, and it is dishonest as you can be.
Secret Service Investigating Trump Adviser For Clinton Execution Comments
By: Steve - July 23, 2016 - 10:00am
This is what they are doing at the Trump/RNC convention.
The Secret Service is officially investigating Al Baldasaro, an adviser to the Donald Trump campaign for veterans issues, who called for Hillary Clinton's execution for "treason."
"The U.S. Secret Service is aware of this matter and will conduct the appropriate investigation," spokesman Robert Hoback told The Daily Beast on Wednesday afternoon.
"Anyone that commits treason should be shot," Baldasaro told The Daily Beast earlier in the day. "I believe Hillary Clinton committed treason. She put people in danger. When people take confidential material off a server, you're sharing information with the enemy. That's treason."
Baldasaro was expanding on a comment he made on Tuesday, when he called for Clinton to be "put in the firing line" over her mishandling of classified emails.
Obama Fact-Checks Trump's Convention Speech
By: Steve - July 23, 2016 - 9:00am
President Barack Obama on Friday responded to the end of the Republican National Convention by saying, "some of the fears that were expressed throughout the week just don't jibe with the facts."
Obama fired back by reassuring Americans that we're not on the "verge of collapse."
"I did not watch the convention. I don't think that's a surprise. I've got a lot of stuff to do, and they are pretty long events," the president said during a news conference, adding that he had read up on many of the claims made during the week, particularly by GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Obama went on to pick apart certain dubious statistics and fear-inducing anecdotes about undocumented immigrants.
He noted that the violent crime rate has been lower during his presidency than at any other period in the last several decades. He also noted that while violent crime has seen a small uptick in some cities this year, the overall rate of it is far lower than it was both when Ronald Reagan was president and when Obama took office.
"The fact is that the rate of intentional killings of police officers is also significantly lower than it was when Ronald Reagan was president," he said. "Those are facts. That's the data."
The FBI announced in May that 2015 was one of the safest years for cops on record.
Obama also took on Trump's panic-provoking claim that "nearly 180,000 illegal immigrants with criminal records, ordered deported from our country, are roaming free to threaten peaceful citizens" by stating that undocumented immigrants are entering the U.S. at a rate that is two-thirds lower than it was during the Reagan administration.
"We're not going to make good decisions based on fears that don't have a basis in fact," Obama said.
"America is much less violent than it was 20, 30 years ago," the president added. "And immigration is much less of a problem than it was not just 20, 30 years ago, but when I came in as president."
Other inaccuracies in Trump's speech include the claim that "ISIS was not even on the map" before Hillary Clinton became secretary of state in 2009.
The terrorist group has its roots going back as far as 2004, five years before President Obama appointed her to the position, according to the National Counterterrorism Center.
Police Commander Suspended For Lies About Charles Kinsey Shooting
By: Steve - July 23, 2016 - 8:00am
A North Miami, Florida, police officer who shot an unarmed black mental health therapist was identified Friday as a SWAT team member, and a police commander accused of fabricating information about the shooting was suspended.
A lawyer for the wounded therapist, Charles Kinsey, meanwhile, told the Miami Herald he does not believe a police union official who claimed the shooting was an accident.
SWAT team member Jonathan Aledda was identified Friday as the cop who fired three shots during the confrontation Monday in which Kinsey was wounded in the leg.
Bystander video shows Kinsey lying in the street with his hands up shortly before the shooting. Kinsey said he had been trying to calm a patient with autism who had run from a nearby group home. The patient's toy truck apparently was mistaken for a gun by a 911 caller.
The cellphone footage adds another vivid flashpoint to recent controversial police shootings of black men in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Falcon Heights, Minnesota. Police officers, meanwhile, have been gunned down by ambushers in Dallas and Baton Rouge.
Kinsey's lawyer, Hilton Napoleon, on Friday cast doubt on the police union leader's explanation. He said he didn't believe that a SWAT team member with four years experience would be a poor shooter. Napoleon also said the officer should have warned Kinsey to move away if the intended target was the other man.
Kinsey, in an interview from his hospital bed, said he asked Aledda why he shot him after he was hit. He said the officer answered, "I don't know."
Aledda is on administrative leave (with pay) while the authorities review what happened.
Police officials also suspended Commander Emile Hollant without pay for what North Miami City Manager Larry Spring Jr. said were inconsistencies in his statements about the shooting.
Republican Nicolle Wallace: The Republican Party Died Tonight
By: Steve - July 22, 2016 - 11:30am
NICOLLE WALLACE: Listening to this, I was struck by two things I always believed during my two decades in Republican politics. One, the voters always get it right, and two, the Republican Party that I worked for for two decades died in this room tonight. We are now represented as a Party by a man who believes in protectionism, isolationism, and nativism. And those were the forces that George W. Bush, and I believe John McCain too, were most worried about during their times as the leaders of the Republican Party.
CHUCK TODD: Striking comment. You believe the Party died tonight?
WALLACE: Well, the voters picked this guy. This is where the Republican Party is now. They now are attracted to those forces of isolationism and protectionism. But the party I was part of for two decades is dead.
And she forgot one thing, the Republican party is now seen as the racist white power party, because of Donald Trump and his plan to win the White House with white votes only. Trump is a far-right racist and crazy loon and anyone who supports him is a fool. Including Bill O'Reilly, who is backing Trump all the way, who is even lying and covering for him.
Roger Ailes Resigns From Fox News
By: Steve - July 22, 2016 - 11:00am
The man that O'Reilly said he backed 100% resigned from the Fox News Network. Ailes resigned from Fox News amid sexual harassment allegations -- a shameful end to his controversial twenty-year tenure running the country's conservative cable news channel.
Ailes departure is effective immediately. Rupert Murdoch, the 85-year-old patriarch of parent company 21st Century Fox, is now the channel's chairman and acting CEO.
Ailes, 76, was thought to be untouchable until two weeks ago, when ex-anchor Gretchen Carlson filed a lawsuit against him.
Within days, other women also came forward with similar accounts of harassment. Some of the allegations dated back to the 1960s; others were much more recent. Fox's 9 p.m. host Megyn Kelly told investigators that Ailes harassed her a decade ago.
Murdoch and his sons James and Lachlan, who jointly run the company, pressured Ailes to resign. Firing him outright was another option.
After Ailes' resignation was announced, Carlson's lawyers released a statement saying, "Gretchen Carlson's extraordinary courage has caused a seismic shift in the media world. We hope that all businesses now understand that women will no longer tolerate sexual harassment and reputable companies will no longer shield those who abuse women. We will have more to say in coming days as events unfold."
Why You Should Vote All The Republicans Out Of Office
By: Steve - July 22, 2016 - 10:00am
And not vote for Trump either, to send a message to the out of touch with the mainstream far-right Republicans that if they nominate right-wing loons like Trump they will get crushed in the general elections.
Most Americans are aware that despite the deadly massacre in Orlando Florida, Senate Republicans blocked four basic and sensible gun safety laws.
Now, one might say that it is typical of conservatives to block any and all gun safety measures and that would be a partially correct assumption. However, while Senate Republicans were doing their due diligence in service to the NRA and gun manufacturing lobby, both conservatives and liberals on the nation's highest court took a different course.
Maybe it was because some Americans, and people from around the world, are reeling over the deadliest mass shooting in history, the Supreme Court refused to hear a challenge to one state's current ban on semi-automatic rifles. The Connecticut law was enacted shortly after a maniac with an assault rifle slaughtered 20 children and six of their teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
The Connecticut law made it illegal to sell or possess assault-style weapons and the high court decided it would not weigh in and allow the law to stand. As Adam Liptak of the New York Times reported, "The decision not to hear the case, is part of a trend in which the Justices have given at least tacit approval to gun-control laws in states and localities that choose to enact them."
That decision not to hear the Connecticut case was not the only rare win for gun safety advocates. The Court's Justices also "left in place legislation in New York that bans assault rifles" making New York and Connecticut two of the seven states that "outlaw weapons similar to the one used last week" to massacre 49 American citizens celebrating at the nightclub in Orlando.
Obviously, no matter what any American says, it appears that as influential as the NRA is on conservatives, they have not reached the juncture where the Justices on the Supreme Court bend to their demands. Sadly, that is not the case with Republican politicians.
The current Republican leader Donald Trump is the perfect example of a Republican who dutifully obeys the NRA chief La Pierre when it is politically expedient. To hear Trump today is like listening to La Pierre or Ted Nugent calling for more guns in America. But in 2000 in a book, The America We Deserve, Trump endorsed assault weapons ban and railed on the GOP for serving the NRA.
Trump wrote, "The Republicans walk the NRA line and refuse even limited restrictions."
And, after the Sandy Hook massacre in 2012, Trump tweeted, "President Obama spoke for me and every American in his remarks in #Newtown Connecticut."
Remember, President Obama spoke for Trump with an emotional appeal to Republicans for sane gun safety regulations after 20 children were gunned down in cold blood, but since he is running as a Republican for the presidency, Trump is now firmly in the NRA's camp and dutifully parroting their call for more, not fewer, guns.
It would be easy to say that Republicans are blocking any and all gun safety measures due to the will of the American people, except that is just not the case.
Despite what Republicans say, the will of the people is to mostly support more gun safety laws.
According to a new poll from CNN, 92 percent of the American people support expanded background checks and 85 percent support preventing people on the FBI's terror watch list from buying guns at all.
Republicans in Congress do not agree with the overwhelming majority of the people, including 83 percent of gun owners nationally, who support criminal background checks on all sales of firearms.
Obviously no sane American believes selling assault weapons or any weapons for that matter, to suspected terrorists and that is why the Senate vote informs there are either very, very few sane Republicans in the upper chamber or there is another motivation to keep Americans reeling from bloodbaths.
What is more apparent is that it is not the GOP's lack of sanity driving America's gun proliferation, but the "gun lobby's outsized spending and influence in the Republican Congress" preventing gun safety measure enactment.
The 56 Republicans who voted to allow terror suspects unrestricted access to assault weapons received more than $36 million in political campaign donations. It is not the Republicans devotion to more guns and bloody massacres that is the problem; it is, as usual, the money from the NRA.
It is really getting to the point that there is not much to comment on about Republican devotion to the National Rifle Association. It is a fact that they have no respect or devotion to Americans and their safety regardless their claims that blocking gun safety laws protect Americans.
One might even understand their failure to act after a maniacal anti-LGBT madman slaughtered 49 innocent Americans, what with the GOP's hatred of gays, but this adherence to doing the will of the NRA has persisted even after 20 innocent children were slaughtered and nine innocent African American churchgoers were massacred as they worshipped.
Now that Republicans have once again blocked what any American with half a brain would consider common sense gun safety measures, it is obvious that their comments of condolence after each massacre are as phony and worthless as their prayers for the victims.
Prayers and comments, by the way, that are suggested by the NRA to pacify the overwhelming majority of Americans, including gun owners, who want gun safety measures enacted. What is particularly telling is that even the conservatives on the Supreme Court did not think banning assault weapons is an abomination.
But then again, the National Rifle Association is not paying the High Court's Justices to do their bidding like they are the Republicans in Congress. We have a Republican Congress that is bought and paid for by the NRA, and that is a fact.
They go against the will of the people (which is what they were elected to do) and do whatever the NRA tells them to do, even after thousands of people are killed with assault rifles and high capacity ammo clips. The least they could do is ban the high capacity ammo clips, but they refuse to even do that. And because of that they should all be voted out of office.
Illinois Republicans Remove Racist Trump Delegate
By: Steve - July 22, 2016 - 9:00am
The Illinois Republican Party on Wednesday revoked the credentials of a Donald Trump delegate from Chicago who has used a social media handle of "whitepride" for "publicly made racist comments and threats of violence."
Lori Gayne, an elected Trump delegate from the city and west suburban 5th Congressional District, was stripped of her Republican National Convention delegate credentials, state GOP Chairman Tim Schneider said.
GOP officials said Gayne posted something on Facebook on the opening day of the convention that included a photo suggesting law enforcement officers were prepared to shoot African-American protesters and used a racial slur.
In May, a Tribune profile of Trump delegates elected in the March 15 primary revealed that Gayne used the handle "whitepride" on social media.
Now think about that, they knew about the racist in May, which is 3 months ago, and yet they waited until now to remove her, which is very telling.
GAYNE: "With all the racism going on today, I'm very proud to be white. Just like black people are proud to be black and now, as white people, whenever we say something critical we're punished as if we're racists. I'm tired of it. I'm very proud," Gayne said then in an interview.
"I'm so angry I don't even feel like I live in America. You can call me a racist. Black Lives Matter? Those people are out of control," she said.
Except when you say the white cops should shoot all the blacks and use the n-word instead of blacks, you are a racist and you deserved to be removed. It's kind of hard to deny you are a racist and be mad that you are called one, when you use a white power handle and say the cops should shoot all the n-words.
You are a racist, you freaking idiot!
Other social media accounts she used, which didn't feature her real name, found her lashing out at members of the Muslim religion.
State Rep. John Cabello, R-Machesney Park, co-chair of the Illinois delegation and a major Trump supporter, said he supported free speech but said Gayne had crossed the bounds to be a representative for Illinois Republicans.
"I don't believe her voice is one we want in the party," Cabello said.
And you know it had to be very bad for the Republicans to remove her. This is not a liberal doing it, this is what people in her own party did to her, so she can not claim a liberal was to blame.
O'Reilly Supported Texas Voter ID Law Ruled Discriminatory
By: Steve - July 22, 2016 - 8:00am
A U.S. Appeals Court Finds Texas Voter ID Law Discriminates Against Minority Voters. Now remember that this law was passed by Republicans and supported by Bill O'Reilly. In fact, O'Reilly said the law was great and he had no problem with it.
O'Reilly: "Leftist Objections To Voter ID Laws Are A Crock"
He said more:
"Voter IDs would make fraud more difficult, everybody knows that," he claimed. "But still, the far left objects."
"This is a ruse," O'Reilly declared. "Because the grievance industry wants people to think the Republican Party is suppressing votes, and if you take that issue away they have one less thing to whine about."
"The left denies any voter fraud, which is absurd."
"Enough's enough," he concluded. "There comes a point when craziness has to be rejected. Let's get the pictures on the Social Security cards, stop the nonsense and be a responsible country."
O'Reilly is not only wrong, he is a liar. Because the left does not deny there is voter fraud, they admit there is a little voter fraud, what they say is that it is vert little, less than 1% of votes are fraud.
Among the conservative lies that refuse to die is the idea that there is widespread voter fraud in America. The most recent warning about the scourge of illegal voting came from the Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who recently claimed "the fact is voter fraud is rampant."
That's simply not true, as many new outlets reported. According to Politifact, there were just 85 prosecutions for voter fraud in Texas from 2002 to 2015, and not all of them led to convictions. That's a paltry number considering that more than 42 million ballots were cast in the state's general elections from 2002 to 2014.
The reality is that voter fraud, which includes a range of offenses from impersonating another voter to casting more than one vote, is extraordinarily rare.
And the tsunami of voter ID laws, address requirements, and sloppy purges of voter rolls has made it much harder for Americans, particularly minorities and poor voters, to cast their ballots.
Voter ID laws are all passed by Republicans, not one has been passed by any Democrats or Independents. They are meant to do one thing, suppress votes with the poor, black, and other minorities, and that is a fact. Many Republicans have even admitted that they know most of the poor and the minorities vote for Democrats, so they are trying to make it harder for them to vote.
O'Reilly ignores all that to claim it's just a ruse by the left to make Republicans look bad, proving that he is a right-wing liar, because he is wrong, and the courts have proven it.
A federal appeals court has ruled that a Texas voter ID law has a discriminatory effect on minority voters, and it has ordered a lower court to devise a remedy before the November elections.
The Texas voter ID law requires voters to present an approved ID card before voting. It has been controversial ever since it was passed in 2011. NPR's Pam Fessler explained why earlier this year:
"Part of that has to do with the type of photo IDs the Legislature designated as legitimate. For example, military IDs and concealed handgun carry permits -- they're lawful to vote. But state employee photo IDs and university photo IDs are not.
"So in federal court, the plaintiff's lawyers have argued successfully that the Legislature approved ID cards that were more likely to be held by white Republican voters and excluded IDs that were more likely to be held by minority Democrats."
"Last summer, a three-judge panel from the 5th Circuit 'ruled unanimously that the law does not equate to a "poll tax" but does discriminate against minority voters,' as the Two-Way reported. After that ruling, the case was put before the full 5th Circuit for review."
This spring, the U.S. Supreme Court gave the 5th Circuit a deadline of July 20 to rule on the case. As NPR's Nina Totenberg has reported, the deadline was motivated by suspicion that the 5th Circuit might have been "dragging its feet" to keep the law in effect until after the election.
And btw folks, here is something else O'Reilly never reported. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals is one of the most Conservative Courts in America.
The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit is home to some of the most conservative federal appeals judges in the country. Five of the court's judges once wrote that a man could be executed despite the fact that his lawyer slept through much of his trial.
In 2011, a Fifth Circuit panel strongly suggested that undocumented immigrants have no Fourth Amendment right to be free from unlawful searches or seizures.
The court's former chief judge once cut off one of her few liberal colleagues during an oral argument, telling him "I want you to shut up."
Funny how O'Reilly just forgot to mention any of that, yeah, because he does not want you to know any of it.
The idea, Nina says, was that a ruling by Wednesday "would leave enough time for the Supreme Court to decide whether to block the law for the upcoming election."
In its decision Wednesday, the 5th Circuit called for the lower court to change the law in a way that "disrupts voter identification rules for the 2016 election season as little as possible" -- but it said some changes were necessary to keep the law from discriminating against minorities.
Miami Police Shoot Unarmed Black Man With Hands Up
By: Steve - July 21, 2016 - 11:55am
UPDATE -- Friday July 22, 2016: O'Reilly did not say a word about this shooting on the Friday night Factor show, Bret Baier was the fill-in host and he did not say a word about it either. As usual, O'Reilly and his fill-in host ignored the entire story, while saying the Black Lives Matter group has no reason to complain about out of control police.
UPDATE -- Thursday July 21, 2016: As expected O'Reilly did not say a word about this shooting on the Thursday night Factor show, and most likely never will. Because he is a biased coward who ignores police misconduct.
Now this is getting ridiculous, this time the police in Miami shot an unarmed black man who was laying on the ground with his hands up, while he was telling them he did not have a gun and that he was a Therapist getting his autistic patient who had escaped his group home.
The autistic man had a white toy truck in his hands and was sitting on the ground in the street. The Therapist was telling the police they did not need their guns because neither of them were armed, then they shot him as he was laying on the ground on his back with his hands up in the air.
And of course it was all on video, and it is an outrage. He even told the police it was a toy truck, and who he was, what he was doing, etc. and they shot him anyway. The cop who shot him should be fired and prosecuted. Yes we should support the police, but not when they do insane things like this.
Video released Wednesday shows the moment before North Miami police shot an unarmed, behavioral therapist as he tried to calm a man with autism, according to WSVN.
A U.S. congresswoman who represents the city told reporters she was shocked by the video that shows the scene before the shooting.
"This is like a nightmare to me," U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson said.
"When you shoot a man lying on the ground with his hands up, explaining to you the situation, and you shoot him anyway? Something's not right with this picture," she said.
Still recovering in a hospital bed, Charles Kinsey is now talking about what happened in that cellphone video recorded Monday.
"When I went to the ground, I went to the ground with my hands up," he said. "And I am laying there just like this, telling them again there is no need for firearms."
"As long as I've got my hands up, they're not gonna shoot me, that's what I'm thinking," Kinsey said. "Wow, was I wrong."
Police were responding to a 911 call about a disturbed man walking around with a gun, threatening suicide. Kinsey said that man was one of his patients, Rinaldo, who has autism. The reported gun, he said, was actually a toy truck.
The video shows Kinsey, with both hands held up in the air, telling officers "All he has is a toy truck. A toy truck. I am a behavior therapist at a group home."
Kinsey was simultaneously trying to calm Rinaldo and explain what was happening to the police, he says, when an officer shot him.
"When it hit me I had my hands in the air, and I'm thinking, 'I just got shot!' Kinsey recalled. "I'm saying, 'Sir, why did you shoot me?' and his words to me were, 'I don't know.'"
Kinsey said the officers then handcuffed him and flipped him over as he bled onto the concrete. Kinsey told WSVN that being cuffed after being shot upsets him the most. He says he still experiences flashbacks when he closes his eyes.
The North Miami Police Department issued a statement asking for witnesses, photos and videos of the officer-involved shooting, and called the investigation open and ongoing. The Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office is also investigating.
The officer who shot Kinsey has been placed on administrative leave, with pay. If the officer is not fired then the Miami Police department has no credibility and the DOJ should step in and take over.
Dear Bill O'Reilly, this is why black people fear the police. Now show this video on the Factor and report on it, I want to see what you say about the cop that shot that guy. He was 100% innocent, he had no gun, he was a Therapist trying to get an autistic patient back to his group home, and he was shot for no reason while laying on his back with his hands up.
And then after shooting the guy they rolled him over and handcuffed him, are you kidding me. They shot an unarmed man for no reason then handcuff him while he is bleeding to death, give me a break, that is an outrage, and anyone who looks at the video should be upset and disturbed at what they see. And of course not all cops are bad, but when you see things like this is makes them all look bad.
How much is this going to cost the taxpayers, because he already has a lawyer and he is going to get a lot of taxpayer money for that cop shooting him. Taxpayer money, so every person who pays taxes should be mad at what the cop did. Talk about that O'Reilly, you are always crying about high taxes, well police shooting settlements are part of why taxes are so high, some cities pay millions in settlements every year, and O'Reilly says nothing about it.
What say you O'REILLY! Defend that, I dare you. If you do not support that rogue trigger happy cop being fired, you have zero credibility, none, and you should resign as a so-called journalist. The cop that shot him has no business being a cop, or a gun for that matter, he even told the guy he did not know why he shot him.
CNN & Fox News Are Simply A Joke
By: Steve - July 21, 2016 - 11:50am
I usually do not watch CNN or Fox News, except for watching O'Reilly to write about him. But just for fun I turned to CNN and watched it for 5 or 10 minutes, then I watched Fox for 5 or 10 minutes, and it was like watching the exact same thing, both of them were almost a mirror of each other.
The only difference is Fox is a little more far-right than CNN, but not much, it's like Fox and Fox Lite.
They both kept saying tonight is the big night for Trump, and how it is his make or break speech that will decide if he is presidential, etc.
Are you freaking kidding me, do these corporate right-wing stooges actually believe that garbage?
They act as if Trump can read a written speech off a teleprompter he is qualified to be the President. It's laughable, because the speech is written by someone else, and he will simply be reading it off a teleprompter.
And all the stooges at Fox and CNN will praise him for it and say how great he did. Even after they slammed Democrats for using teleprompters, they will say nothing about Trump doing it. It's a joke, Trump is a racist idiot who has no policies and no plans, he is just lying about everything to try and get elected, and he is a racist fool that only whites are going to vote for, they even admit it.
And if this fool even comes close to the White House we will be the laughing stock of the world. He needs to go down hard, and get crushed by Hillary, and I am betting he does.
Insane O'Reilly Thinks Trump Can Beat Clinton With White Votes Only
By: Steve - July 21, 2016 - 11:30am
Which is just ridiculous, because what O'Reilly failed to take into account is that a lot of those white voters are going to vote for Hillary Clinton, including me, and millions of white Democrats. So Trump can not win with just the white vote, and even Chris Wallace told O'Reilly where the flaw was in his argument.
O'Reilly said this:
BILL O'REILLY (HOST): For Donald Trump to win, he has to turn out the white vote in great numbers. If he does that, he can live with 20 percent or less of the minority vote. And it's obvious at this convention and by the Trump strategy itself that his campaign believes white voters will put him in the White House.
All of this sounds kind of ominous, that you have an election pitting whites against minorities. And Talking Points wishes that were not the case but it is. This time around, many white voters feel aggrieved, feel that the Obama administration is not looking out for them. That's what Laura Ingraham is talking about. Thus, the rise of Donald Trump.
And that my friends is a lie, because Trump can not win with just the white vote. Bill O'Reilly has no clue what he is talking about. For Trump to with with the white vote only, he would have to get about 70% of all the white vote, which is not possible.
Romney got 59% of the white vote and he got crushed by Obama in the electoral college 330 to 206. It was not even close, and Trump can not win unless he gets at least 40% of the Latino vote, so 20% of the minority vote and 60% of the white vote will not get the job done for Trump.
Not to mention a lot of whites voted for Romney because they are racists and Obama was black, Clinton is white and she will get more white votes than Obama did, so Trump is in big trouble.
Not to mention this, the rise of Trump is because the Republican party had a revolt over the elected officials they have now. It is true they do not like Obama, but Trump won the Republican primary from Republican voters, not because they hate Obama, because they do not like what their own party members in Congress etc. are doing, it was a party revolt. O'Reilly acts like Obama was to blame for the rise of Trump, which is a lie.
O'Reilly is so far in the tank for Trump he can not see or think straight, and it is pathetic.
9/11 Conspiracy Theorist Received Special Guest Credential At RNC
By: Steve - July 21, 2016 - 11:00am
This right-wing nut thinks the U.S. Government was to blame for the 9-11 terrorist attacks, And Trump gave him special credentials to his convention.
Alex Jones, the conspiracy theorist radio host and 9/11 Truth leader who has been courted by Donald Trump's presidential campaign, has reportedly been awarded with a "special guest" credential at the Republican National Convention.
David Corn spotted Jones entering the arena, and tweeted this:
Just saw Alex Jones enter the arena with a special guest credential. That is all you need to know about this convention. #RNCinCLE
- David Corn (@DavidCornDC) July 20, 2016
Jones helped launch the conspiracy that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job by the U.S. government and has also claimed that the government was involved in the Oklahoma City bombing, and the mass shootings in Aurora, CO, and Sandy Hook Elementary School, among other tragedies.
In other words, the guy is a freaking lunatic. But Donald Trump loves him so much he gave him special credentials to the RNC convention.
Trump has courted Jones and his audience, appearing on Jones show in December and praising his amazing reputation. Key Trump ally Roger Stone regularly appears on Jones program.
In turn, Jones has heavily promoted Trump's campaign; most recently, Jones spoke at Stone's July 18 "America First Unity Rally," which was attended by Jones fans who noted the radio host's key role in bringing them to support the GOP nominee.
Krauthammer Said It Looks Bad Calling For Clinton To Be Jailed
By: Steve - July 21, 2016 - 10:00am
Charles Krauthammer: RNC Delegates Chanting "Lock Her Up" Is "Not A Good Way To Present The Party"
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I would point out that yesterday, during the speech of Christie, a crowd of several thousand people here -- we were here -- began shouting about Hillary Clinton, "lock her up."
Now, I can understand you want to rally the base, but if you're trying to appeal to the 17 remaining Americans who are undecided, that's not the way you want to go. If you're going to unite the party and unite the country, which is what people are looking for, that is not a good way to present the party.
BRET BAIER (HOST): But Charles, let me say, in Philadelphia, don't you expect there's going to be a whole slew of speakers who go directly after Donald Trump and every aspect of Donald Trump?
KRAUTHAMMER: Of course they will. But I don't know that I've ever seen a crowd of this size calling for the other side's presidential candidate to be jailed. Now I will agree that some of that chanting was sort of good-natured, over the top stuff that was done sort of half-heartedly.
But there was some malice in that, and I think that's one thing. With the execution thing, there are a lot of -- and we saw it in a lot of the Trump rallies. It's something the Trump campaign has to work on to try to diminish or to tamp down rather than to incite it because --
KRAUTHAMMER: It just looks bad for them.
Cruz Wife Led Out By Security After Ted Does Not Endorse Trump
By: Steve - July 21, 2016 - 9:00am
CLEVELAND - Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) saw his big moment at the Republican National Convention drowned out by thunderous boos on Wednesday night as he declined to endorse his former foe Donald Trump for president.
The speech had started with a diametrically different tone. Cruz came out to a hero's welcome, and earned sustained applause as he laid out a conservative case for governance.
But the crowd, led by the New York delegation, grew notably restless as the speech went on and Cruz refused to mention Trump's name. Cruz acknowledged them - "I appreciate the enthusiasm of the New York delegation" - but kept soldiering on, a slight smirk on his face.
The restlessness turned to outright jeers when Cruz told the crowd to "vote your conscience" - a phrase that has been adopted by the group of Republicans who had asked delegates to not coronate Trump as the nominee. And when he declared that Republicans are "fighting, not for one particular candidate or one campaign," the boos began.
Trump's family looked on from their box seats, they were not happy and not applauding.
As the speech entered its closing stages, Cruz had completely lost the crowd. Screams of endorse came from the rafters. John Antoniello, the Chairman of the Staten Island GOP, helped lead them.
If the situation wasn't chaotic enough, it rose a level higher in that moment. In an act of pure showmanship, the room's eyes turned back to that Trump booth. The candidate had perfectly timed his entrance to take away attention from his former primary foe.
Cruz had been upstaged while standing on the stage.
Much of Wednesday night's drama shouldn't have come as a surprise. Over the course of the week at the Republican National Convention, one of the more entertaining side shows has been the battle among Republican elites to position themselves for the 2020 election. And no politician has been on the receiving end of more of that 2020 chatter - facilitated, in part, by his top adviser - than Cruz.
By letting it be known early on that he would not formally endorse, Cruz also gave the Trump campaign plenty of time to prepare.
"He had an opportunity to blow the roof off the place, and he blew it," said Carl Paladino, the Buffalo real estate developer who is one of Trump's top backers in the state.
Peter Kalikow, the former owner of the New York Post and New York delegate, said he wasn't surprised that Cruz didn't endorse Trump.
Bill O'Reilly Slammed Montel Williams On The Factor
By: Steve - July 21, 2016 - 8:00am
O'Reilly said Montel Williams refused to do his show, after he agreed to do it. So then O'Reilly called him a coward and banned him from the show.
Montel said this on his twitter page:
I'll respond to O'Reilly's "version" of events shortly. Let's say I see it differently.
Nothing Bill O'Reilly said about me tonight was accurate. Calling me a coward when he hasn't served is ridiculous and unprofessional.
Oh I showed up - Bill has an serious honest problem.
Let's just say @oreillyfactor calling me a coward is amusing. A guy who never served a day in his life...
Bill calling me a coward is laughable. The guy who didn't serve but lied about his war reporting?
My understanding of the segment was diff than theirs, it wasn't resolved, left, bill fell apart
Let's get over Bill's untruth there - I showed up - he in fact saw me. I left after a bait and switch was pulled
He said O'Reilly told him the topic was one thing, then changed it at the last minute. That's shady.
Williams took to Periscope to fire back. And, wow:
"The word coward is usually used on people who have done most of the things that you've done, like embellishing lies about your credentials as a journalist, like the fact that your own daughter in a testimony in a court case said that you dragged your ex-wife down a flight of stairs. You wanna talk about coward, homeboy? We know who the coward is."
Montel hammered O'Reilly on Periscope, and it was great. If you want to see it just go to the Montel Williams twitter page. He laid into O'Reilly like nobody I have ever seen, it was a 2 minute takedown of the dishonest O'Reilly explaining exactly what O'Reilly did and why he left.
Montel explained in the two-minute video that he initially agreed to be on "The O'Reilly Factor," but changed his mind when producers switched topics on him at the last minute.
"This is the first time I have not done an interview that I was scheduled to do, probably in the last five years," he said. "That does not bring O'Reilly's show to a screeching halt. It should not have even affected Bill."
His message then transitioned into a heated rebuttal of the "cowardly" label, insisting that O'Reilly is the real coward.
Referencing the scandals that have marked O'Reilly's career, including allegations of domestic abuse raised during his custody battle, Williams said "We know who the coward is."
"You want to talk about coward? That's what a coward truly is, somebody who's going to call somebody a name on air, and not even to their face. I'm calling you one now, so the whole world can see it." "Leave me alone," he said. "You don't want me on your show anymore? I don't care."
O'Reilly calling him a coward for refusing to do his lame right-wing cable news show is pathetic, especially when Montel Williams is a 24 year veteran of the military, and O'Reilly dodged the draft 2 times, one time to go to school in England, and another time he took a teaching job to avoid serving.
Delegates Say Their Votes Were Changed Against Their Will To Nominate Trump
By: Steve - July 20, 2016 - 11:00am
And of course O'Reilly has not said one word about any of it, while trying to cover for Trump by ignoring it and telling people Trump can win in November. Which is the same thing he said about Romney, before he got crushed 330 to 206.
On Tuesday night, Donald Trump officially became the Republican Party's presidential nominee. But the moment that should have signified party unity was broken by shouts of dissent and demands for a recount as multiple delegations had their votes changed against their will.
In the delegation from Washington, D.C., ten were assigned to support Rubio and nine to Kasich, based on how D.C. Republicans voted in the primary. But the RNC overruled them, and assigned all 19 votes to Trump.
Minutes after the vote, first-time D.C. delegate Kris Hammond told said he felt insulted and excluded by his party and its nominee.
"How is Trump going to listen to us if he's elected president, if he's not listening to us now?" he fumed. "He's not allowing dissent. He's not going to allow anything other than subservience to Donald Trump."
"I am not surprised," Hammond said of the surprise switch. "It has reinforced my previous conception that you cannot trust this party to do the honorable thing and act in a responsible manner."
"We were told all along that this is not the way the rules would be interpreted," D.C. delegate Chip Nottingham added. "To just be insulted like that is outrageous. The Trump campaign didn't need our 19 votes. They didn't ask for our 19 votes. They never earned them."
Three states also had their votes changed to back Trump against the will of the delegates, using provisions in the party rules of those states. But some, including Alaska, rose up in protest, demanding a recount.
"I was very unhappy when they announced our vote," Cruz delegate Larry DeVilbiss from Palmer, Alaska said. "Back in our state it looks tacky because we had a preferential poll, and we had our delegation proportionate to all those votes. I'm upset. I know voters will be upset."
After an extended musical interlude, RNC chairman Reince Priebus overruled them, and the nomination of Trump proceeded.
But some delegates refused to go down quietly. Hammond, a civil rights attorney, said he is considering resigning from the local Republican Party Committee and casting a protest vote for Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson. He said that he wants his fellow DC Republicans to join him.
"This is Donald Trump and the Republican Party giving the District of Columbia a big middle finger," he said. "Why would I pledge loyalty to someone who did not respect me? I think if Gary Johnson can defeat Donald Trump in the District of Columbia, that will be a slap in the face. He will find out that he cannot disrespect DC voters."
Nottingham, a platform committee member, said he felt "not good" about the document.
"I voted against it every step of the way," he said. "We would prefer that the national party not micromanage us. It's unnecessary."
As some top Republican strategists are warning, Hammond said he fears the Republican Party will damage itself in the long term by supporting Trump in the short term. He compared attending the GOP convention to "trying to talk an old friend out of committing suicide."
The Republican Convention Is So Bad Even Trump Is Not Watching
By: Steve - July 20, 2016 - 10:00am
Instead of watching the convention Trump called into Fox News to do a live interview with Bill O'Reilly. While the mother of Benghazi victim Sean Smith was speaking live at the Republican convention, Donald Trump showed how much he cared by hijacking his own convention and called into Fox News.
Donald Trump loves to talk about how much he cares about what happened in Benghazi, and how Hillary Clinton got four Americans killed, but while the mother of one of the four Americans who was killed in Benghazi, Patrica Smith, spoke to the Republican convention, Donald Trump called Fox News to talk to Bill O'Reilly.
I guess Trump's name was not being mentioned enough, so he did a phone interview to compete with his own presidential convention.
The highlight of Trump's Fox interview was his lie that Republicans held the convention in Cleveland because he wanted it in Ohio.
The truth is that Republicans selected Cleveland as the location of the convention in 2014, which was a year before Trump announced that he was running for president.
The Benghazi Truthers that Trump sent out on stage have been a sad collection of broken people whose speaking slots reeked of cynical exploitation. Donald Trump openly competed for airtime with his convention, because his ego is so big that he can't handle not being the center of attention.
The Trump convention has been a blatant attempt to scare people into voting for him. It has also been so boring and bad that even Donald Trump is not watching it.
The RNC Delegate Revolt O'Reilly & Fox News Ignored
By: Steve - July 20, 2016 - 9:00am
There was a delegate revolt at the Republican convention, but you would not know it if you watch the O'Reilly Factor or the Fox News Network, because they ignored all of it.
Boos, screams of no, and cries of shame rang throughout the Republican National Convention's arena Monday afternoon as party leaders rejected demands from at least ten states to allow a vote on the rules that bind delegates to vote for Donald Trump.
The delegates leading the eleventh-hour rebellion, including Colorado's Kendal Unruh, were furious. She said minutes after the vote that she felt cheated by her own party and its nominee.
'The fact that Donald Trump ran on a platform of populism and listening to will of the people...and the very first course of action he could take he chose...to squash the grassroots, to line up with the establishment, and become the establishment, be the party boss, and make sure that he thwarted the will of the people, this does not bode well for the party," she said.
Unruh has for months led a movement to unbind delegates and allow them to vote for a candidate other than Trump. Her attempts to win this freedom during the Rules Committee's negotiations last week went down in flames, so she and other Republicans opposed to Trump scrambled Monday to force a floor fight.
Anti-Trump delegates claimed they had enough signatures to force a roll call vote on the rules, thanks to support from Colorado, Washington state, Utah, Minnesota, Wyoming, Maine, Iowa, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
But Deputy RNC Committee Chair Steve Womack called instead for a voice vote -- asking delegates to shout out yea or nay on adopting the rules without changes. A well-organized group of dissenters screamed out in protest, drowning out the nays. But Womack ignored the clamor and announced from the podium, "The ayes have it."
The room immediately erupted in chaos. Many delegates marched out of the hall. Others booed and chanted, Shame!
The voice vote is a sham, it's done when they know they would not win in a real vote. They call for a aye or ney, and even if the neys win they just say the ayes have it, which is exactly what they did, and why they were so mad.
Womack fled the stage, then returned and held a second voice vote that he also called for the ayes. He then announced that several states had withdrawn their support for opening up the rules to a roll call vote -- a decision that some delegates attributed to intimidation tactics from the RNC and Trump loyalists.
"We had Trump people looking over our delegates shoulders taking pictures of their texts," Unruh said. "We had Trump delegates that were standing in front of the microphones to deny us access. You see the strong arm tactics. You have the coercion."
Virginia delegate Tommy Valentine, a 22-year old first-time convention attendee, said that representatives from the Trump campaign tried to retaliate against him for favoring a roll call vote.
"I had one Trump staffer who came to me and said, 'When Trump becomes president, he will remember,'" adding that the Trump campaign staff also made a vague mention of Virginia's tax dollars. "I said, 'Are you threatening me or are you threatening Virginia?' And he said, 'No, no that's not what I meant.'"
Valentine said he watched the same staffers attempt to strong-arm others. "They were going around to the delegates who would sign the documents intimidating them and telling them to take their names off it," he said.
When the effort to force a roll call vote failed and convention leaders attempted to move on, former Virginia Attorney General and delegate Ken Cuccinelli threw his credentials on the ground in frustration. He said he wanted to know which states withdrew their support from the petition effort and why.
"Why wouldn't they name the states?" he asked angrily.
Convention leaders then asked all 2,000-plus delegates to stand and pose for a group photo as cameras floated over the massive stadium. But the moment that should have symbolized the party's unity was broken by more chanting from the delegates who felt they were denied a voice. Some began chanting, roll call vote!
During the group picture, Valentine turned his back on the camera. "I'm not going to smile for the stupid picture," he said. "I'm an elected official, sent here by my district, and they just ignored me."
Valentine said that the rejection of the vote makes him question his role in the nominating process.
"These people just broke parliamentary procedures, their own rules," he said angrily, pointing to the arena stage. "Why should I even come to the convention? Why should I come tomorrow? Why should I come Wednesday? Why should I come Thursday?"
As one of the youngest delegates on the floor, Valentine noted that the rejection of the vote hurts the party's chances with young people. "How are we going to recruit young people when we tell them: your voice doesn't matter?"
Despite their defeat on the floor on Monday, Unruh and other anti-Trump delegates are vowing to fight on.
"This entire system is rigged to force the vote for Donald Trump," she said. "If he had allowed a free process, a fair process, and earned the vote fair and square, you wouldn't have this division in the party. This is what's sad: that the RNC doesn't want chaos in the party but then they create the chaos."
Valentine, who represents a district in Northern Virginia, said the chaos shows how little unity exists in the Republican Party going into the general election.
"If the Trump campaign were so sure about unity, they shouldn't be afraid of a roll call vote," Valentine said.
As the chaos erupted on the floor of the Republican National Convention following a voice vote over whether or not delegates would be free to vote on the conventions rules, Fox News first ignored it and then criticized other media outlets for reporting on it.
In what was billed as the last stand for the Stop Trump movement, a voice vote was taken to adopt rules drafted by the RNC rules committee. Despite chaos on the floor, it was ruled that "the ayes have it and the resolution is agreed to," a ruling which was denounced by Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) and other anti-Trump conservatives.
While MSNBC and CNN were covering the scene from the RNC, Fox host Stuart Varney was attacking The Washington Post for its reporting. When the network finally turned to the uproar, Varney used it to attack other media outlets for reporting on the "commotion."
Fox CEO Roger Ailes Has Until August 1 To Resign Or Be Fired
By: Steve - July 20, 2016 - 8:00am
Parent company 21st Century Fox has given Fox News CEO Roger Ailes a deadline of August 1 to resign or be fired in light of its investigation into his alleged sexual harassment.
Ailes has been under fire since July 6, when former Fox anchor Gretchen Carlson filed a lawsuit against him alleging sexual harassment and retaliation. As other women have come forward to levy similar accusations against Ailes, the network's hosts and anchors -- along with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and Bill O'Reilly -- have rallied around him.
Yesterday, Sherman reported that his sources say Rupert Murdoch and his sons Lachlan and James, the company's leaders, had decided to give him the choice to resign or be fired. Today, Sherman reports that the deadline for that offer is August 1, and that it is in part triggered by allegations from Fox anchor Megyn Kelly that Ailes had sexually harassed her as well. From Sherman's report:
According to two sources briefed on parent company 21st Century Fox's outside probe of the Fox News executive, led by New York-based law firm Paul, Weiss, Kelly has told investigators that Ailes made unwanted sexual advances towards her about ten years ago when she was a young correspondent at Fox. Kelly, according to the sources, has described her harassment by Ailes in detail.
Kelly's comments to investigators might explain why the Murdochs are moving so quickly to oust Ailes. As New York reported yesterday, Rupert and sons James and Lachlan, the three top executives at 21st Century Fox, have, according to multiple sources, decided that Ailes needs to be removed.
Kelly, who has become something of a feminist icon thanks to her tangles with GOP nominee Donald Trump, is seen by many inside Fox as the future of the network. She's currently in contract negotiations.
According to two sources, yesterday afternoon lawyers for 21st Century Fox gave Ailes a deadline of August 1st to resign or face being fired for cause. Ailes's legal team, which now includes Susan Estrich, former campaign manager for Michael Dukakis, has yet to respond to the offer. Ailes has also received advice on strategy from Donald Trump and Rudy Guiliani, sources say.
Ryan Selfie Shows The Future Of The Republican Party
By: Steve - July 19, 2016 - 11:30am
The top Republican in the country Paul Ryan took what he thought was a great selfie, until someone noticed something, everyone in the photo is white. This is the future of the Republican party folks, and it is all white.
The photo is Paul Ryan with more than 100 young Republicans, and not one Black, Mexican, Asian, or anyone of color is in the photo.
Ryan loves to pretend that the GOP does not have a race problem. The 2012 autopsy report from the spectacular loss of the Romney/Ryan ticket to President Obama and Vice President Biden had a lot of so-called minority outreach goals. The problem is, they ignored the report because their far-right base is all right-wing loons, so they just go with what the base wants.
Clearly, none of those goals have been accomplished. After all, the current GOP standard-bearer, Donald Trump, has run a campaign that is steeped in racism. He kicked off his campaign by calling Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals, he has called for a ban on all Muslims entering the United States, has called women fat pigs and dogs, and accused Fox host and debate moderator Megyn Kelly of being menstrual when called out on this, and a whole host of other things that play to the bigotry that is so inherent in the current incarnation of the GOP.
Here is the photo:
Women For Trump Event Draws About 30 People
By: Steve - July 19, 2016 - 11:00am
And quite a few of them were journalists who were there to cover the event, the actual number of women who showed up was far less than 30, more like 15 or so.
The Donald Trump campaign plans to use the Republican National Convention to change his image with undecided female voters.
But he has his work cut out for him if the attendance at a "Women Vote Trump" event held Monday in Cleveland is any indication.
Two journalists covering the event pointed out how poorly attended the event was - bad news for a candidate whose favorite word is "huge."
Laurie Penny, a British freelance journalist, posted a photo of the audience featuring lots of empty seats.
The photos show about 15 women in the audience, and about a hundred empty seats.
Journalist Oliver Laughland, who was there tweeted this:
Q&A now happening, but crowd so small the panel are asking themselves most of the questions.
Amy Kremer, the co-founder of Women for Trump, tried to put the best spin on the low turnout.
"I knew I was going to take a beating and a lashing for supporting Donald Trump," she said defiantly from behind a lectern, according to Jezebel.com. "From other conservatives! But who are you to judge me?"
Jezebel estimated there were 30 people in attendance, including journalists.
By comparison, an anti-Trump rally held Sunday that asked 100 women to parade in the nude as a protest against Trump attracted more than 1,800 willing volunteers.
The Trump campaign hopes to improve the candidate's numbers with women this week by mellowing out his often heated rhetoric, spotlighting his family, especially daughter Ivanka, and focusing on security.
Whether it works will depend on whether women voters forget the many inflammatory and vile things he's made about their gender, many of which have been helpfully collected in the following video.
The First Trump/Pence Interview Was A Total Clown Show
By: Steve - July 19, 2016 - 10:00am
On Sunday, Donald Trump and Mike Pence appeared on 60 Minutes in their first joint interview since it was announced that the Indiana governor was going to be Trump’s running mate, and my God was it a train wreck.
It was one of the most awkward things I have ever seen. The Trump/Pence team might rank up there with McCain/Palin as one of the most odd couples we've ever had in politics. I know it's tough for many folks reading this to sit through any sort of Trump speech or interview, but I would encourage everyone to watch this disaster.
One of the first insane moments came when Trump said he was going to declare war on ISIS, but he would only send very few troops in on the ground. Ignoring the fact that Congress declares war - not the president - and he apparently doesn't understand that if you don't send in enough ground forces to get the job done, our troops are going to get stretched thin, fatigued - and slaughtered.
This was classic Trump trying to talk big about ISIS, while proving that he doesn't know what the hell he's talking about.
When the war in Iraq was brought up, Leslie Stahl mentioned the fact that Pence actually voted for the war when he was a member of Congress.
"I don't care," Trump said.
"What do you mean you don't care?," Stahl responded.
"It was a long time ago," he replied. "And they were also mislead."
Yeah, they were mislead, by the Bush administration. Funny how he forgot to mention that, or that he has said Iraq was a massive mistake and anyone who voted for it was wrong.
Stahl, obviously taken back by Trump's remarks, then reminded him that he had used Hillary Clinton's vote on Iraq frequently throughout his campaign as a sign of her bad judgement.
At which point he essentially said that Pence was allowed to make that mistake but Hillary wasn't.
You can't make this stuff up. It's like arguing with a 5 year old child, it makes no sense and he thinks he always wins.
When religion was brought up, Trump claimed that he's religious because he won the evangelical vote. By that logic, since he's winning the white supremacist vote, (using his own logic) that means he's also a racist.
Leslie Stahl then asked Pence (who's spoken out against negative campaigning) what she thought of Trump's negative attacks and name calling. Pence tried to provide a half-assed non-answer to her question, only to have Trump cut him off (as he did throughout this entire interview) to provide his own non-answer to her question.
At one point, when Pence was asked whether or not he disagreed with comments Trump made where he said he didn't think Sen. John McCain was a war hero, Trump literally said to the Indiana governor, "You could say yes. That's okay. On that one you could say yes. It's fine."
Really? Are you kidding me? I have never seen anything like this where a presidential candidate was basically telling his running mate that it was okay if they answered a question honestly. Not only that, but despite telling him it was alright for him to be honest about that question - he never let Pence actually answer.
Stahl then brought up the fact that Mike Pence has been very pro-trade agreements, including the TPP, while Trump has based a large part of his campaigning saying that these agreements represent a rape of our country.
At which point both men tried to do what they had done many times throughout this interview and dance around their obvious differences in policy beliefs, with both men claiming that Trump isn't against free trade, he just wants better deals.
When the topic of torture was brought up, Pence was asked whether or not he backs Trump's support of waterboarding and a hell of a lot more. He more or less refused to provide a direct answer as to whether or not he supports torture. A simple question turned into a rather incoherent word salad of the Indiana governor seemingly doing anything and everything he could to not provide a yes or no answer to a direct question.
Perhaps the best part of this whole interview occurred when Stahl said that most people don't view Trump as a humble man. He disputed this point, claiming he is actually quite humble.
"I think I am, actually, humble," Trump replied. "I think I'm much more humble than you would understand."
Yeah, the guy who constantly brags about himself, his success, his supposed wealth and has his name written all over practically everything he owns stated, with a straight face, that he's actually a very humble person, give me a break, Trump can not even spell humble.
This interview was one of the most awkward, unintentionally comical and ridiculous things I have ever watched. Normally sitting through an interview with Donald Trump would make my skin crawl, but this thing was so bizarre that it was actually entertaining.
These two might go down as one of the most disastrous presidential tickets in U.S. history.
Heilemann: Gingrich's Call To Test American Muslims Faith Insane
By: Steve - July 19, 2016 - 9:00am
Heilemann: "I Believe That Violates At Least Three Parts Of The U.S. Constitution"
And Gingrich knows it, he just said it to the far-right base to send them a message that they are with them, even though it's unconstitutional.
JOHN HEILEMANN (CO-HOST): Can we take a moment though just to pause on the thing President Obama was criticizing there in a fairly direct way, which was Newt Gingrich's comments last night, which were some of the most outrageous things I have heard a presidential candidate say in a long time. They're more outrageous than the things Trump has proposed. They violate --
MARK HALPERIN (CO-HOST): Outrageous that Gingrich walked it back a bit today.
HEILEMANN: He started out last night basically saying anyone of the Muslim belief should be rounded up, questioned, we should find out if they believe in Sharia law, and if they do we have to deport them.
I believe that violates at least three parts of the U.S. Constitution -- and that he said that it should be a felony for us to look at websites that have information about Al Qaeda or about ISIS on them. That would basically put most of the CIA and a fair number of journalists in jail, too. Insane. Insane.
HALPERIN: Gingrich put on display why a lot of people, including me, thought putting him on the ticket would have risked having the running mate be the story more often than the top of the ticket.
Blacks Protesting Would Be A Crime In The Trump Administration

O'Reilly Pushes Trump To Say He'd Single Out Black Lives Matter For Criminal Charges If Elected
Bill O'Reilly: Would You "Order The Attorney General To Look Into" Black Lives Matter "For Possible Charges?"
Charges? For what? Protesting while black. It's ridiculous, and only something two old white racits would even think of, all they do is protest police abuse, and that is not a crime idiots.
Here is a partial transcript:
BILL O'REILLY (HOST): At the top of the broadcast we were discussing the terrible police assassinations. I think it's domestic terrorism. And whether the Republican Party is going to make that issue, killing police officers, a campaign issue. Will you do that?
DONALD TRUMP: Of course. It's a big issue. It's a horrible issue. And it's going to be a very important one. It's called law and order. We want law and order. And that's going to be one of my big issues and always has been.
O'REILLY: What about the Black Lives Matter movement? Will they be singled out as a provocateur in this terrible situation?
TRUMP: Well, you see them marching and you see them on occasion, at least, I have seen it, where they are essentially calling death to the police. And that's not acceptable whether you like them or don't like them, that, Bill, is not acceptable. But I have seen it and you have seen it.
O'REILLY: When you say it's not acceptable, if you are elected president, what can you do about a group like that?
TRUMP: Well I think you have to look into it very seriously because people get themselves into big jams for saying a lot less than that. I have seen them marching down the street essentially calling death to the police. And I think we're going to have to look into that. Especially in light of what is happening with these maniacs going and shooting our police.
O'REILLY: When you say look into it, there is a constitutional right, of course, to freedom of assembly and free speech. Are you saying that you would order the attorney general to look into it for possible charges?
TRUMP: When you see something like that taking place, that's really a threat, if you think about it. And when you see something like that taking place, we are going to have to, perhaps, talk with the attorney general about it or do something. But, at a minimum, we're going to have to be watching. Because that's really bad stuff and it's happened more than once.
O'REILLY: Do you believe the group, Black Lives Matter, is a fuse-lighter in the assassinations of these police officers?
TRUMP: Well, certainly in certain instances they are. And they certainly have ignited people and you see that. You see that all over. And I think it's a very, very serious situation and we just can't let it happen. Now, everybody is free to say what you want to say up to a point. But when you are calling death to police and to kill the police, essentially, which is what they said, that's a real problem, Bill. That's a real big problem.
