The Recipe feat Dr. Dre
Possible Evil Legislation Alert.
Please start calling
I don’t see how any “compromise” gets to 216 because I don’t think there really is a compromise on actual legislation. The only compromise would be campaign dollars being withheld as a threat, or other such blackmailing tactics from the rethug leadership. So if the so-called “moderates” try and pretend they will go along with the we-dont-give-af Freedom Caucus – they can’t sell that to their constituents in purple districts at all.
Oh come on!!!

Where Did All the Black Teachers Go?
APRIL 20, 2017
I started first grade at an all-black elementary school in Chester, Pa., a deeply segregated factory town near Philadelphia, in 1957 — three years after the Supreme Court ruled in Brown v. Board of Education that school segregation was unconstitutional.
The crisply dressed first graders who moved hesitantly that day through the halls of the Booker T. Washington Elementary School — built expressly for “colored children” — would be the first in their families to find relief from some of the most egregious humiliations that had come with being black in our town.
A popular restaurant nearby that used to turn away black patrons had begrudgingly begun to seat them. The movie theaters (including the one where black townspeople had watched “Gone With the Wind” from “colored” seats in the balcony) no longer separated patrons by race. The skating rink was the lone Jim Crow holdout: Black skaters could attend only if it was “ebony” night.
Segregated schools for black students were often decrepit, poorly staffed and crushingly overcrowded. But I recall no such infirmities at Booker T., as we called it. It was sparkly clean, quiet as a library and firmly under the control of steely, well-educated African-American women who were sticklers for grammar, could freeze your misbehaving heart with a glare and had the unnerving habit of engaging our parents in conversation on the street.
Today, many of the women who taught at Booker T. would instead have become lawyers, bankers or executives. But back then, discrimination that would ease with the passage of time had ruled out those careers and made teaching the default choice for the capable Negro women who then poured their aspirations into us.
The significance of what they gave us is being driven home in a growing body of research showing that black children — particularly those from impoverished families — benefit from having black teachers.

Afternoon Miranda, POU. I arrived to kindergarten about the same time, and to polished, professional black teachers, in a segregated school in Philly. Exactly as the writer described. Am very proud of that time in my life.
@edp4bho:disqus You know it!! It’s down to %20 of black teachers in the School District of Philadelphia (traditional public schools) Some of the charters are higher, but they often aren’t union gigs and some of them don’t have to have teacher certifications. Don’t even get me started!!!
They ran them out and put so called white libs in their place.
I ALWAYS suspicious about the circumstances surrounding Benghazi because of the timing. I will never forget the hasty press conference Mitt Romney gave during that election year press conference and the smirk he had on his face afterwards. I never knew this bit either. Uh huh. It is all making much more sense now.
All these mofos going down. This house of cards bought to come tumbling down.
Read that link – firm linked to Erik Prince
Oh wow. How many perp walks we talkin’ about?
Who is this tweeter? this don’t make no sense why would he resign so quickly to do this?
Chaffetz’s digital guy already said he registered the domains but that Chaffetz isn’t running. They do this all the time – there is a registered Boehner for President domain too.
But more importantly…NO CHAIRMAN OF THE HOUSE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE STEPS DOWN UNLESS ITS A SCANDAL.
Follow dat $$$.
Officially running for an office means you can grift for the cash to pay your legal bills.

No, I will never stop being this petty

I know, right?
Well I’m proud to be a coal…..wait…..solar famers daughter!
I drive by Northside Parkway every single day. Yall won’t me to put on my trenchcoat and sunglasses and go find out who this is??
Trenchcoat and sunglasses… that’s hot.
Oh yeah, get em!
Nah… might be a Russian front. You might fall off a building with a heart attack, after strangers beat you to death.
Ooh. Good point.
What would be said is:
she ate bad bowl of borscht, ran into wall many, many, times, and then slipped.
To go from platinum to dirt is a mighty big fall.
That ain’t dirt, that’s SHIT!
LOL. Atleast I can grow great tomatoes in dirt !
I actually think its good he took this picture- its good for the history books to see how racist his voters were. It is watching the mediocrity trying to be legitimate.
Oh so now Hawaii is not a state in the union anymore? Oh we’re back to this you racist, xenophobic slug!

Officials rushing heath bill that could harm millions b/c Trump fears embarrassing 100 day coverage:
White House plans Obamacare showdown next week
The text of a new bill is likely to circulate Friday or by the weekend.
04/20/17 10:26 AM EDT
The White House is pushing for another showdown vote on repealing Obamacare next week, to coincide with President Donald Trump hitting his 100-day milestone in office.
Legislative text of a new deal that could revive the House Republican bid to repeal Obamacare is likely to be circulated Friday “or by the weekend,” according to two senior White House officials, with an eye toward holding a House floor vote next Wednesday or Thursday.

I don’t why some people are falling for this nonsense. Republicans on the hill are already saying that they have no idea what the WH is talking about and that they’re are no plans to vote on it and no deal in place. Like Josh Barro said this is just like the “Barack Obama wiretapped me” BS that Trump pushed. He says something and pretends there is something to it and nothing comes out to support it. Trump keeps saying Trumpcare is alive because he knows it looks bad that he has no accomplishments going into the 100 day mark. Trumpcare is dead and Trump and his advisors in the WH are pretending it isn’t.
I’m reminded of why I don’t fux with Bloomberg: The Conservative Case for Thomas to Retire
Not Kennedy but Thomas should leave so Trump can put in a younger Justice.
When should we expect a raging incoherent tweetstorm about this from the oompa loompa? By 5pm est? *giggle*
Also Keith Ellison can go to hell. He attacks Pres. Obama for midterm losses which usually occur anyway when the party controls the WH, but it’s like he wants to put all the blame on Pres. Obama. Last I checked a number of democrats didn’t want to campaign with the president in those elections. And many refused to speak up in favor of the policies that were put in place under Obama, Reid and Pelosi. Ellison is another mediocre loser is jealous and at the end of the day PBO and his legacy will continue to shine while history won’t he recognize him as a footnote. I think it’s clear that a lot of people during the Obama years on all sides were jealous and continue to be jealous.
He is jealous. They also butt hurt because POTUS44 pretty much told them off when their progressive caucus were acting like their idea was new when they stole it from him.
you are right — he won’t be a footnote in history and that’s what kills of them blackademia, Ellison, Bernie, alt left. Nobodies
Exactly. It’s been obvious since day one that a lot of people particularly in Washington are jealous of Obama. Just look at the way they talk about him or act around him when he was in the WH. At the end of the day no one is going to give a damn about Sanders, Ellison, the blackademics, the alt left, etc. in the future and the history books. All of them including Trump are a bunch of losers.
And no other word ever need be used but jealousy. Everything else is a waste of air.
Because this video will never get old…
And I gotta go down there next week too? Aw, hell no. I’m keeping my ass inside after sundown.
Ignorant ass Sessions needs to be cussed out.
Tell his azz off!
??? Why is Chaffetz tweeting this out? Did somebody have questions about his wife? (they are really dumb at this)
Lord, this is sounding very Watergate-ish.
The entire GOP has been compromised. They ALL need to be brought down.
Remember, the Russians hacked the GOP too but only released tea on the Democrats.
Sounds like Jason Chaffetz has been having sex with someone other than Julie Chaffetz.
Two theories: One – Russia turned him because of an affair (supposedly live boy). Two – Russia turned him because his actions (besides his vote) led to compromised security at Benghazi, which would be used to taint Hillary Clinton.
All water under the bridge, as supposedly the FBI is about to scream like James Brown about Jason’s isht.
What Russian boy this dude fuck?!
Which is probably what she telling him while she pack his shit.
Just the fact that they continue to talk about Trumpcare or push it is politically stupid. Even if they just barely passed it out of the house the bill is dead in the senate. Then you would have house members on record for voting for the most unpopular bill in history. It’s like Trump is trying to make the GOP lose both houses.
grain of salt
Did y’all see this??
Black College Student, Friend Charged With Hate Crime For Burning Trump Sign
Source: Talking Points Memo
By ALLEGRA KIRKLAND Published APRIL 20, 2017 1:01 PM
Like most states, Maryland’s hate crime statutes protect against discrimination based on race, color, religious beliefs, gender, sexual orientation, disability and national origin. A local police officer recently took it upon himself to add another category to that list of protected classes: Trump voters.
D’Asia Perry and Joy Shuford, 19-year-old friends, were charged Tuesday with a slew of crimes including second-degree arson, trespassing, and committing a hate crime for setting fire to a large Donald Trump billboard displayed near a family sporting goods store run.
In the charging documents, Princess Anne Police Sgt. Robert Smith laid out his justification for the hate crime charge: “The intentional burning of these political signs, along with the beliefs, religious views and race of this political affiliation, directly coincides with the victim.”
Smith’s explanation suggests that those who share the sporting goods store owner Robert Wink’s “political affiliation” as a Trump-voting Republican all have the same “beliefs, religious views and race.” Wink is white, and Perry and Shuford are black.

So when are they going to start charging all those people who burnt down/ripped down the BLACK LIVES MATTERS signs posted outside of churches in Silver Spring?
We can do this all day.
I think we all do. : (
Class vs. Trash.
Fox pundits had fits when rap artists visited Obama White House. They treated the WH w/ the utmost respect. PBO wouldn’t tolerate otherwise.
Notice Kid Rock didn’t make any gestures…um hmm
Another attack in Paris?
Someone is really trying to swing that election for LePen (looking at YOU, Rooty Poot).
And I fear too many stupid French voters will fall for it. It’s so obvious what’s happening.
SMDH……what the hell – you drop a big ass bomb but don’t want to disclose the damage?
Mattis: U.S. won’t dig into ‘mother of all bombs’ damage in Afghanistan
04/20/17 03:35 PM EDT
The U.S. won’t conduct a damage assessment following the drop of the “mother of all bombs” on Islamic State fighters in Afghanistan a week ago, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Thursday.
The U.S. hasn’t characterized its effectiveness in war through the number of enemy casualties for decades, Mattis said, citing lessons learned from body counts in the Vietnam War.

He’s best friends with Luciano Pavarotti, Barry White AND James Brown.
Now you got me picturing the Ally McBeal Crew jamming to Barry and Luciano.
Who are all dead…..
Does he know these people are dead??
He just called out somebody that was Italian that he could think of. He’s that stupid.

LOL…..Emily Steel probably never has to buy another drink or meal in NYC. She is golden.
Bill O’Reilly was taken down by ‘New York Times’ reporter he threatened in 2015
Emily Steel — whose reporting in the New York Times brought down Bill O’Reilly — was threatened by the now-former Fox News host two years ago for covering his tall tales about the Falklands war.
“I am coming after you with everything I have,” O’Reilly told Steel on the record in 2015. “You can take it as a threat.”
Steel, who joined the Times as a media reporter in 2014, was one of the two journalists whose reporting earlier this month led advertisers to leave The O’Reilly Factor and, eventually, to the network dumping O’Reilly on Thursday. Steel and Michael S. Schmidt reported April 1 that Fox and O’Reilly had paid $13 million to silence women who accused the conservative host of sexual harassment.
In an episode of the Daily podcast from the Times after O’Reilly’s ouster, Steel described spending months investigating the claims against the host in the face of “resistance” from the network.

Only b/c of the money. That’s ALL they understand!!
Emily is the Indiana Jones in this situation.
Steel saved every receipt and found new ones. She said, “Game, blouses” on that behind.
Why aren’t feminists yelling about this shit. It’s ok for this nordic heifer?
how long before she’s declared a feminist icon?
Alex Jones child custody trial folks……………..this is being said in open court for child custody, not an evaluation to see if he should be committed..which is what it SHOULD BE FOR.
The judge is just doing this just to catalogue all of this. We know the former Mrs. Fucknut will get the kids.
Did Bernie say he wasn’t sure Ossoff was progressive??
Yes, he said that.
Okay. So, this is Perez’s way of transforming the party? He’s got to do way better than just telling me we need to be inclusive and he’s transforming the party. That’s not what I’m seeing.
Well Ossoff told him off
this was cool

Trump inauguration took $1 million from Russian businessman whose money the RNC rejected in 2000
20 APR 2017 AT 14:56 ET
President Donald Trump’s inauguration accepted a big donation from a Russian-American businessman whose ties to Russian state-owned companies forced the Republican National Committee to return a $250,000 check he sent them in 2000.
In a Wall Street Journal report on the big donors who paid for Trump’s inauguration, the publication notes that Trump’s inauguration fund received $1 million from Alexander Shustorovich, a businessman who has drawn controversy over his relationships with Russian government officials and state-owned businesses.
In fact, the Journal notes that Shustorovich’s ties to Russian oligarchs “prompted the U.S. to refuse to allow him to be part of a uranium deal two decades ago, on national-security grounds” and also “led the Republican National Committee to return a $250,000 check from him in 2000.”
“The determination was made that the funds in question weren’t worth the trouble,” former RNC spokesman Terry Holt told the Journal back in 2000.

Auntie Maxine will be at Auburn University this Friday
U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters – a vocal Trump critic – to speak in Auburn
U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, who rose to Internet fame after her vocal criticism of President Trump, will be a featured speaker at the Alabama College Democrats spring convention at Auburn University.
The convention kicks off with the “Dems in the House” reception on Friday at Foy Hall (222 Foy Union Circle) on campus. The reception, which is set for 7 p.m., will feature Waters, D-California; U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell, D-Alabama; state Rep. Anthony Daniel, D-Huntsville, who serves as House minority leader, and others.
The convention is free to registered college students. For everyone else, tickets are $35 and can be purchased here.
Waters, 78, who has served in Congress for 40 years, was nicknamed “Auntie Maxine” after she said FBI director James Comey “has no credibility” (on Russia investigation) at a press briefing.
And, she walked away.
Damn, I hope I look that good if I live that long!!!
Damn near 80 and she looks better than Kellyanne Conway.
It’s going to be funny when all those white college students clamor and scream for Maxine Waters down in south Alabama and yell to pose for pics and everything else. I can’t wait to see it.
climate change is real…
This is INSANE. We can never let anyone try and normalize this FOOLISHNESS.
SMDH…so damn obvious – terrifying the French into voting for that bitch LePen.
Yep and I fear they’re going to fall for it too, smdh.
