‘Empire’ Lectures ‘Nothing Christian’ About ‘Horrors’ of ‘Being Denied’ Abortion 16.10.2019 NewsBusters
Apparently, Fox’s Empire wasn’t finished lecturing us about abortion. The October 15 episode “Tell the Truth” decides to take everything they said about “pro-life” beliefs and make it worse. This time, Christians and pro-life women are the ones to ...
FINALLY: Kamala Harris Brings Up Women's Healthcare 16.10.2019 Crooks Liars
Democrats have had 6 debates and not a peep about women's healthcare and abortion. Well, that changed tonight during the CNN Debate. Kamala Harris finally brought this issue to the forefront. This is the sixth debate we have had in this presidential cycle. Not one word with all of these discussions about health care, on women's access to health care. It's outrageous. There are states that have passed laws that will virtually prevent women from having access to reproductive health care. It's not an exaggeration to say women will die because these Republican legislatures in these various states who are out of touch with America are telling women what to do with their bodies. Women are the majority of the population in this country. People need to keep their hands off of women's bodies and let women make the decisions about their own lives. Booker jumped in shortly after, talking about abortion clinics closing, but Kamala got it started. After Booker mentioned it again, one of the hosts mentioned that it ...
Kamala Harris comes out swinging for abortion rights: ‘People need to keep their hands off of women’s bodies’ 16.10.2019 Raw Story
At Tuesday night’s Democratic presidential debate in Ohio, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) condemned the attacks on abortion rights unfurling in state legislatures and courts nationwide — and urged Americans to pay attention. “This is the sixth debate we have had in this presidential cycle,” said Harris. “Not one word with all of these discussions about […]
Is The DCCC Blacklist Backfiring? 14.10.2019 Crooks Liars
A reminder: As soon as Blue Dog/New Dem Cheri Bustos grabbed the DCCC chair for herself, she instituted an aggressive new policy aimed at progressives challenging Blue Dogs and New Dems (like herself). Bustos officially declared that any campaign consultants, vendors, polling firms, strategists or operatives who worked for a campaign running against an incumbent would be blacklisted by the DCCC. (It's worth noting that several dozen current members of Congress, including some who demanded the action from Bustos-- like Henry Cuellar-- were originally elected by challenging incumbents.) The Chair immediately went on the offensive against Marie Newman's campaign in a Chicagoland district occupied by anti-Choice, anti-gay, anti-healthcare, anti-immigrant, (face it, Anti-Woman) Blue Dog Dan Lipinski, one of the worst Democrats in Congress. Marie nearly beat him in 2018 when close to a million dollars in right wing sewer money-- including from the Murdoch family-- flooded into the district in a smear campaign ...

We’d love to hear the Democratic debaters answer these six important questions this week– but we probably won’t hear them asked 14.10.2019 Raw Story
Here’s the thing about these election debates that continue on Tuesday: They are not working. That is, however effective at eliminating the worst fund-raisers, they do not serve as a good screen for the range of skills that we think make for a good president or good governing. Rather, they are an expression of our […]

Pollution, anxiety, and death: How Trump is poisoning the country and literally making us sick 12.10.2019 Raw Story
If you’ve ever said “Donald Trump makes me sick,” it was probably a metaphorical statement. Or was it? The scrapping of life-saving regulations, the lies and incessant digital braying on Twitter and children confined to detention camps in the name of America. In your name. What’s it all doing to our minds, bodies and the earth […]

Samantha Bee Trashes Pence for Sending 'Women's Health Care..Back to the 1600s' 4.10.2019 NewsBusters
Taking a page out of Chris Matthews’s playbook, Full Frontal host Samantha Bee devoted the second segment of her show Wednesday to declaring war on Vice President Mike Pence; who would become President if the liberal fantasy of President Trump’s impeachment and removal from office comes to fruition. Bee had a particular beef with Pence’s pro-life voting record and his failure to implement Planned Parenthood’s agenda at the Department of Health and Human Services. Perhaps Bee has her eye on Alexis McGill Johnson’s job as Acting President of Planned ...

FLASHBACK: Dan Rather Is Amazed By Smart, Hard Working Hillary Clinton 27.9.2019 NewsBusters
In 1993, more than a decade before Dan Rather would fully disgrace himself as a partisan determined to take down George W. Bush, he fawned over then-First Lady Hillary Clinton’s efforts to nationalize health care. Twenty six years ago this week, on September 22, 1993, Dan Rather interviewed Clinton and fawned over all her hard work: "You know, as I hear you talk, as I have before on this subject, I don't know of anybody--friend or foe--who isn't impressed by your grasp of the details of this ...
