WHAT ARE YOU PROTESTING?
WHADDYA GOT?
Variety Writer Calls for Protests at Oscars: ‘Our Very Perception of Reality is Up For Grabs’
Gleibermann concedes that in recent years “Oscar-night advocacy has become, more often than not, a breed of self-abrogating kitsch…conforming to what I’m tempted to call the Susan Sarandon Principle: The bigger the star, the more off-putting — and therefore ineffective — the display of high-minded compassion.”
However, to Gleiberman, protesting President Trump is not about specifically policies but because Trump lacks empathy.

The new video from the RNC includes clips of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee Patrick Leahy (Vt.), and Sen. Warren.

    GOP Defectors Have Received Thousands From Teachers Union

    Collins, Murkowski will vote no on DeVos

    Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R., Alaska) and Susan Collins (R., Maine) have each benefited from contributions from the National Education Association. Collins received $2,000 from the union in 2002 and 2008, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Murkowski, meanwhile, has received $23,500.

    Alaska NAACP Prez ‘Stole From The People He Was Supposed to Represent’

    IN ALL HONESTY,THERE MUST BE AT LEAST 10 BLACK FOLK IN ALASKA.CRIMINAL ACTIVITY BY THEIR REPRESENTATIVES IS UNDERSTOOD AND FORGIVEN AS LONG AS THEY’RE BLACK.
    Kevin McGee “is a man who has stolen from the very people he was supposed to represent. He used his position to travel first class, stay at 5-star hotels, buy nice suits and live a life he otherwise could not afford,” the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) union told the judge in a victim impact statement at McGee’s June 2010 sentencing.

    He “is nothing more than an opportunistic thief who has shown no remorse” and “doesn’t feel compelled to follow” the law, the union said. “McGee left this organization in a financial mess… there was no checking ledger, bank statements were not even opened.”

    Trump administration is radicalizing Democratic voters, creating a challenge for the party, Rep. Adam Schiff says

    OF COURSE,DEMOCRATS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN CALM,LEVEL-HEADED VOICES OF REASON
    “The radical nature of this government is radicalizing Democrats, and that’s going to pose a real challenge to the Democratic Party, which is to draw on the energy and the activism and the passion that is out there, but not let it turn us into what we despised about the tea party,” Schiff said.

    Trump attends return of fallen Navy SEAL

    I CAN’T RECALL A SINGLE TIME WHEN OBAMA DID THIS EXCEPT WHEN HE SHOWED UP FOR THE BENGHAZI VICTIMS….TO LIE IN THE FACE OF THE GRIEVING FAMILIES AND THE ENTIRE NATION
    “The president offered his sincerest condolences to Officer Owens’ wife, his father and their three children,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters. “Chief Owens was on his 12th deployment, from what I understand. We could never repay the debt of gratitude we owe him, the freedom he fought for, and the sacrifice he made as well as the other members of his unit injured in this operation.”

    Hot Mic Picks Up Pelosi Driving the Narrative Hard: Tell ‘Em You’re A Muslim, Do It!

    “Greetings from the great state of Indiana. I’m Congressman Andre Carson,” he said over an intercom.

    “Tell them you’re a Muslim. Tell them you’re a Muslim,” Pelosi twice insisted. After all, that’s the only pertinent information about his identity at the moment. Forget his other accomplishments.

    “The Democratic party — we’re seeing it unravel in front of our eyes, and we’re seeing it be revealed in front of our eyes,” Kellyanne Conway said during an appearance on “Fox and Friends” Thursday.

    “[They are] a bunch of crybabies who say that they’re going to oppose Supreme Court nominees before they even know the person’s name and his academic credentials and his impeccable judicial record. They are holding up our nominees to the Cabinet. This obstinance and obstruction is the modern Democratic party.”

    “I think it’s going to cost them because they’re hysterical about everything now,” she predicted. “Everything makes them cry and scream.”
