    CNN thinks objectivity is giving a conservative a few minutes to speak and then giving a liberal a few minutes to speak and "leaving it there." The only one willing to call out bullshit for being bullshit is Fareed Zakaria, but CNN feels it's necessary to apologize for Zakaria daring to say the word "bullshit."

    No, this is not satire from Stephen Colbert but the Department of Homeland Security has announced a strengthened border strategy amid growing tensions between the U.S. and Canada. Just look at all the dangerous Canadians that have slipped over the border and taken jobs away! We could have had an American actor play Captain Kirk, not that Canadian Shatner!

    Oh, I get it. I mean...even if you think some people over reacted to the Chick-fil-A thing, at least there's a real issue behind it. Thundercats was a cheesy cartoon that existed for no other reason than to sell toys to children. Grown men are OUTRAGED because there's a remake done in the style Steven Universe or whatever aimed at people who are children now, and they feel that it's a "slap in the face" for not catering to their nostalgia. My point was that "Outrage Culture" knows no bounds.

    Ant-Man and the Wasp has a Canadian co-lead, a Mexican-American supporting cast member, and Randall Park (who played Kim Jung Un in 'The Interview'). so topical.

    Well, shit, Canadians ARE dangerous! Look at all the trouble Justin Bieber’s gotten into, and think of all the eardrums Celine Dion’s made bleed with her horrid singing. Oh, yeah, who decided to let that raunchy rock band Rush into the country? Get rid of all those rotten Canucks!

    This is why Republicans are Dangerous. The real Political Correctness is this right here.

    GOP lawmaker wants Michigan teens to learn the KKK is anti-Republican — not anti-black


    Colbeck also insisted the phrase “core democratic values” was not political neutral enough for students to learn about.

    “They had this term in there called ‘core democratic values,’” Colbeck said. “I said, ‘Whatever we come up with has to be politically neutral, and it has to be accurate.’ I said, ‘First of all, core democratic values (is) not politically neutral.’ I’m not proposing core republican values, either.”
    Is always confused.....

    Mark Sanford, hiking the Appalachian Trail, will not be finishing first in his primary for 1st Congressional District of South Carolina. Instead, Trump pick, Katie Arrington, will be taking over as the GOP nomination.'

    Meanwhile, Corey Stewart wins the GOP nomination for the Senate in Virigina. Who is Stewart? If you missed WBE's profiles...

    In 2016, Stewart spent several months as the Virginia chairman of Donald Trump's campaign, though the campaign fired him before the election for participating in a protest outside the Republican National Committee.

    Stewart launched his Senate campaign after surprising -- and alarming -- national Republicans by winning 42.5% in last year's gubernatorial primary against former Republican National Committee chairman Ed Gillespie.

    He made Charlottesville's push to remove its statue of Robert E. Lee the centerpiece of his campaign for governor, holding rallies for the monument and displaying Confederate flags while defending "heritage" at his events. At one point, he attended an Old South ball.

    He attended a news conference with the leader of the white supremacist protest that later resulted in the death of a counter-protester in Charlottesville. And after that counter-protester, Heather Heyer, was killed in a hit-and-run, Stewart blamed the violence on "both sides."
    He's challenging Tim Kaine for his seat and I know some of you have problems with Kaine... BUT, do you really want Stewart? Do you want the racist?

    Arpaio would be impressed.

    Texas may soon be the site of tent cities that will house immigrant children separated from their parents as a result of the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy, McClatchy reported Tuesday.

    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is eyeing Fort Bliss, an Army base close to El Paso, as a potential location for a cluster of temporary shelters that could house between 1,000 and 5,000 children, McClatchy reported. The department is also considering Dyess Air Force Base in Abilene and Goodfellow Air Force Base in San Angelo.

    Thousands of immigrant children have been separated from their parents in the wake of the new policy, which U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced in April. The policy requires immigration authorities to prosecute adults who enter the country illegally seeking asylum, while children are placed in shelters or with families. The tent city proposal is the Department of Health and Human Services' latest idea for housing the growing number of children under their care, who are quickly filling shelters.

    The department did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment.

    U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke, a Democrat who represents Fort Bliss, could not confirm the report late Monday afternoon.

    “We have nothing confirmed about where or if military bases will be used for certain," he said. "But, I first and foremost am opposed to this policy of family separation."

    “This is absolutely the wrong thing for our country to be doing, and I would hate to see us continue this," he added. "The prospect of building tents or using resources at military installations is just wrong.”

    Also, the Trump Administration is looking to strip people of their citizenship.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — The U.S. government agency that oversees immigration applications is launching an office that will focus on identifying Americans who are suspected of cheating to get their citizenship and seek to strip them of it.

    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director L. Francis Cissna told The Associated Press in an interview that his agency is hiring several dozen lawyers and immigration officers to review cases of immigrants who were ordered deported and are suspected of using fake identities to later get green cards and citizenship through naturalization.

    Cissna said the cases would be referred to the Department of Justice, whose attorneys could then seek to remove the immigrants’ citizenship in civil court proceedings. In some cases, government attorneys could bring criminal charges related to fraud.

    Until now, the agency has pursued cases as they arose but not through a coordinated effort, Cissna said. He said he hopes the agency’s new office in Los Angeles will be running by next year but added that investigating and referring cases for prosecution will likely take longer.

    “We finally have a process in place to get to the bottom of all these bad cases and start denaturalizing people who should not have been naturalized in the first place,” Cissna said. “What we’re looking at, when you boil it all down, is potentially a few thousand cases.”

    He declined to say how much the effort would cost but said it would be covered by the agency’s existing budget, which is funded by immigration application fees.

    But yeah, keep telling me the Democrats are awful and the worst.

    Those words need to be a thing of the past.

    "This is an instance where I can convince myself that my using them is justifiable..." logic?

    It's garbage. There's no place where they are justifiable.

    I don't get why you are even bothering to engage in strawman bs. It's clear he wanted to use that as an opportunity to paint people who had issues with Hillary as misogynists because it's easier to say "oh they all just didn't like her because she's a woman" as opposed to really considering why some people didn't want to vote for her.

    Fox News Changes Its Tune On North Korea To Echo Trumpís Summit Talk

    Just over 10 months ago, Fox News host Sean Hannity told his audience that North Korea was led by an evil regime that should not be appeased since it would break any agreement with the U.S. On Tuesday, following the Singapore meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Hannity praised Trumpís efforts to negotiate with the dictator and said it exceeded White House officialsí expectations.

    It was a stark reversal ― one that dominated much of Fox Newsí programming on Tuesday. As Trump has softened his stance toward North Korea in the past several months, dropping his ďrocket manĒ insults and threats of military action, Fox News pundits have followed suit.
    More proof of how Faux News bends over backwards to slurp Caramel Caligula for doing the very things they would've relentlessly slammed Barack Obama if he cozied up to Kim. Case in point:

    Watch Hannity Praise Trump And Slam Obama For Pretty Much The Same Thing

    Trump Administration Hands Democrats A Political Gift On Health Care

    The Trump administrationís intervention in an Obamacare lawsuit this week has handed Democrats a political gift, putting Republican candidates on the defensive about whether they, too, want to get rid of some of the lawís most popular provisions.

    On Thursday the Justice Department threw its support behind a lawsuit arguing that Obamacareís protections for people with pre-existing conditions are unconstitutional. The suit, brought by 20 states led by Republicans, argue that those protections were supposed to work in tandem with the mandate that individuals have health insurance. Because Congress is no longer enforcing the mandate, they say, insurers no longer have to sell policies to everyone regardless of medical status.

    While this policy isnít new for the administration, the suit puts it front and center just as this yearís midterm elections are heating up. And it means that Republican candidates, some in states that Donald Trump won in 2016, will have to make a decision: Do they back the president and say they donít believe insurers should have to cover people with pre-existing conditions, or do they publicly distance themselves from him?
