Armed white men just showed up to terrorize the student’s March For Our Lives rally

Today, even as impassioned young people from across the nation took to the streets, inspiring millions by refusing to accept America’s deadly gun violence epidemic, some ill-tempered NRA minions used the occasion to not only cling to their guns but try to intimidate those rallying with threats of violence. Clad in NRA gear and President Trump’s wearable propaganda, “Make America Great Again” hats, some counter protestors even carried AR-15s — the notorious assault rifle that has taken the lives of so many innocent young Americans — to harass ralliers. That the grotesque displays ended without incident is nothing short of miraculous. That the presence of these self-proclaimed Second Amendment enthusiasts…

Elizabeth Warren just made a stunning move in all 50 states

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) announced that she will be donating $5,000 to every state Democratic Party in the United States, as well as $15,000 to the Democratic National Committee, for a total of $265,000. “I want a Democratic Party strong enough to compete for every vote, in every race, at every level, in every state, in every election — and I’m willing to do my part to help make that happen,” Warren said. Warren, for her part, has been critical of the DNC’s actions in the past, which she claims showed “some bias” in the 2016 presidential primaries between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. The move comes amid speculation of a 2020 run…

Ted Cruz in Danger of Losing His Seat to a Dem.

The rain’s coming in sheets as folks file into the Douglas Community Center in Pittsburg, Texas, population 4,707. The organizers of an event for Democratic Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke have set out 50 chairs, but they’re worried now that’s going to be too many. But by the time the candidate bounces through the door, they’re unfolding dozens more chairs as the crowd zooms past 100. O’Rourke, who currently represents the El Paso area in the U.S. House, is running for the chance to unseat the Republican incumbent, Ted Cruz. No Democrat has represented the Lone Star State in the Senate since 1993, but O’Rourke believes he can beat the odds,…

Trump slams the brakes on Obama gun-safety measures

WASHINGTON — In the wake of the mass shooting last month at a high school in Parkland, Florida, President Donald Trump vowed to use his executive authority to enact gun control through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. But over the past year, the ATF has been moving in the opposite direction, delaying new gun-safety rules developed under the Obama administration. As part of Trump's government-wide push for deregulation, the ATF has stalled a number of gun regulations that had been moving forward under Obama, including a new requirement to make secure gun storage or safety devices more widely available. Last year, the administration formally reclassified the proposed gun storage rule and…

Watch: Sarah Huckabee Sanders Snaps After A Horrible Day, Has Raging Meltdown On Twitter

Today was a rough one for White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders as she struggled to defend Donald Trump and provide answers about why Trump’s former campaign aide, Sam Nunberg, spilled the beans on Trump on live television. Clearly, all the pressure adds up eventually, and Huckabee Sanders was looking for a target to unleash all her anger and frustration on. That target just happened to be CNN’s Jim Acosta, who was subjected to an angry tweet from Sanders. Earlier in the day, Acosta had called Huckabee Sanders out during her press pool for ignoring him and not taking questions from CNN for the third press briefing in a row.…
