President Jimmy Carter, the 39th President of the United States, came to President Trump’s defense in a recent interview. From North Korea, to racial tensions at home and the NFL national anthem controversy, Carter says Trump is often mistreated by the media.
Nancy Pelosi’s trouble with the English language seems to be growing by the day.
During a Sunday morning appearance on MSNBC, the House Minority Leader stumbled over words, struggled to form sentences, and called special counsel Robert Mueller “mother.”
After calling an ad advocating for Trump’s impeachment “great.”
“If you become Speaker of the House in January 2019, will you push for the impeachment of this president,” Joy Reid asked Pelosi.
“You know, I’ve served a long time,” Pelosi responded, “on the intel— ethics committee in the Congress. It’s one of the dues that I’ve paid to the caucus and it’s only about the facts and the law.
“If he’s broken the law, you would think there would be a bipartisan move to do that,” she said.
“But because we don’t like his policy and we don’t like his attitude— well, don’t let me go into all the things we don’t like about the president on a Sunday morning,” she continued.
“Uh, uh, that’s, you know, if people have the facts— that’s why I would like us to have an independent, uh, commission. We have an investigation within the Justice Department. We have an investigation within the Congress. We should have an outside investigation to what, as to what happened,” Pelosi said.
Reid responded, “If Robert Mueller comes back with a report saying that there is evidence of collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia, do you believe he should be impeached?”
Pelosi again tried to avoid answering the question, and stammered her way through a string of words, including calling Mueller “mother.”
“Well, it— first of all, what, what does mother— where does Mueller take that. Uh, but his, uh, his, uh, burden of proof is different than what it would be in the Congress of the United States and people should know that— that he has, uh, and maybe, uh, he could go to a criminal investigation of some of the people he’s investigating,” she said, seemingly groping for words.
“What we’re doing is saying— that what the measure of behavior, the Constitution of the United States, high crimes and misdemeanors,” she said, apparently grabbing any phrase that popped into her head.
Pelosi then said “we” have to fight Trump’s proposed tax cut, referring to the measure as “Armageddon.”
“This is it,” she claimed.
Matt Damon and George Clooney opened up about the predatory behavior of their some-times boss and one-time friend Harvey Weinstein on 'Good Morning America.'
In an interview that aired on Monday morning, both men said that they knew Weinstein was a 'bully' and 'womanizer' who bragged of bedding actresses, but had no idea about the level of criminal behavior that was occurring behind closed doors in hotels.
Damon also confessed that he was aware Weinstein had sexually harassed 'the first lady of Miramax' Gwyneth Paltrow just before the actress shot the 1996 film adaptation of Jane Austen's 'Emma' for the studio.
'I knew the story about Gwyneth from Ben [Affleck] because he was with her after Brad [Pitt] and so I knew that story,' said Damon.
'But I was working with Gwyneth and with Harvey on [the 1999 film "The Talented Mr.] Ripley."
He then added: ' I never talked to Gwyneth about it but Ben told me that whatever or agreement they had come to there was an understanding ... and he treated her incredibly respectfully. Always.'
This admission will no doubt lead to more backlash for Damon, who was one of the last people to speak out against Weinstein while at the same time being one of the few to confess that they were in fact aware of at least one incident.
ithout a doubt this is already an NFL season Roger Goodell can't wait to drop kick into distant memory. As players' political activism increasingly encroaches onto the playing field, ratings are getting blitzed.
Over the first six weeks, NFL ratings are down 7.5 percent as compared to last season, per Nielsen. They're down 18.7 percent from the 2015 season. (Commenting last year on the decline, Goodell punted, blaming the presidential election for America's fading interest.)
Faced with such awful stats, it's incontrovertible that if Goodell were himself a player, he'd have already been cut.
But Goodell is clearly intent on retaining possession of his commissionership. His game plan appears to be encouraging players to remain committed to "the issues in their communities" while also telling fans he agrees these athletes should stand for the national anthem.
Over the last two days Goodell has huddled with NFL team owners and the Players Association. Speaking to the press about how he intends to salvage the season, Goodell came up incomplete. As he fumbled for words, a very odd verbal tic emerged.
Over the course of about 20 minutes before the press, Goodell used the same two words no fewer than 45 times.
Watch the montage above to see this bizarre verbal tic in action.
Here's an excerpt from the unofficial transcript:
Issues in the communities, communities, issues, communities, communities, issues, issues, communities' issues, the issues in our communities. Issues in the communities, communities, issues, communities, issues, communities, issues, issues, communities' issues, the issues in our communities. Issues in the communities, communities, issues, communities, communities, issues, issues, communities' issues, the issues in our communities. Issues, issues, issues. Issues in the communities, communities, issues, communities, communities, issues, issues, communities' issues, the issues in our communities. Issues in the communities, communities, issues, communities, issues, communities, issues, issues, communities' issues, the issues in our communities. Issues in the communities, communities, issues, communities, communities, issues, issues, communities' issues, the issues in our communities. Issues, issues, issues.
This isn't Goodell's first time turned over his leadership to talking points. After the Ray Rice scandal in 2014, when the league was accused of effectively running a cover defense for domestic abuse, Goodell developed another verbal tic.
Watch this ridiculous propaganda piece promoted by the Independent, a UK based newspaper. The article claims that Islam would help cure the sexual abuse of women, if only women began acting like Muslim women do. Despite the fact the article admits that Muslim women are raped on par with the same rate as their western and eastern counterparts in China and the US. However, it leaves out other studies that have proven women in Muslim majority nations are actually raped far more often due to their belief system, the women simply cannot come forward in fear of being stoned for adultery.
A RUSSIAN oligarch's daughter wept in her cell as she was detained months after killing six during a "drag race". Alyona Zaitseva, 20, will be held in custody for two months pending an investigation despite an extraordinary appeal to allow her multi-millionaire father to compensate her victims and their families. A blood test showed her clear of alcohol and drugs, and further analysis has been ordered. Her lawyer had sought home arrest for her but a judge ruled that she must remain in a detention prison pending a criminal investigation into alleged dangerous driving causing deaths and injuries. She had been fined for speeding four times before the incident.
According to the information published on social networks, the event was recorded at Morro Santa Tereza, in the city of Porto Alegre - Rio Grande do Sul. During the fight many people are laughing at the situation and, when everything comes to an end, a small girl, who would be the dead man's daughter, cries when she sees him unconscious.
A mother was so preoccupied during a roadside argument with a man who accused her of side-swiping his car that she failed to notice the moment her own vehicle drifted into traffic with her child still inside. Shocking video of the incident, filmed in Arlington, Texas, begins with the man she is accused of hitting asking the woman for her license and insurance information. She says: 'Take a picture.' He tells her that she's fleeing the scene of an accident, to which she responds: 'Did you call 911? Great, have them call me.' She then gets out of the car and starts yelling at the man. She walks up to his vehicle and says: 'This could have been old, your car is already wrecked.' As the two are fighting, the woman's Nissan rolls onto a three-lane highway because the woman forgot to put it in park. 'Oh f***!' she yells as she jumps into the rolling car. She then pulls a U-turn back to where the man is. She parks the car and can be heard yelling on the phone to someone, claiming that she's trying to call the police but doesn't know where she is. 'I have my license and insurance, please just call the police. This man won't tell me his name or anything,' she says to the person on the phone. He asks for her information again and they start fighting again. 'Obviously that's a scheme,' she says. The video was posted to YouTube on Saturday by Earl Jr. Glass.
A family have described how they dramatically escaped 'gun-wielding' would-be carjackers - by reversing at high speed down a country road. Roxy Steljic, her husband and their two young children, aged six and eight, claim they were set upon as they drove along the road in Sogeri, Papua New Guinea. The Australian family were returning from sight-seeing on Saturday when they say they noticed the grey car in front of them driving erratically. Ms Steljic said at first they thought the vehicle was being driven by a 'bad drunk driver'. Ms Steljic's husband managed to reverse up the road at high speed and swerve around the car behind them. The couple, who both work in Papua New Guinea, reported the alleged attack to the police and the Australian mum uploaded the dashcam footage to her Facebook page. Papua New Guinea has a very high crime rate and foreign governments ask that visitors take extra care when travelling there. Violent crimes , including armed robbery, carjacking and sexual assault, are common throughout the country, especially in urban areas such as Port Moresby, Lae and Mt Hagen, according to safetravel.govt .
A SATRI ANGTHONG goalkeeper faced the ultimate humiliation after he wildly celebrated a penalty miss, only for it backspin beyond the line. The Thai side faced Bangkok Sports Club in a cup semi-final clash on Saturday, where the shot-stopper's blunder cost his team-mates the chance to compete in the final.

Two police officers were injured while several protesters were arrested during a demonstration outside the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Conference in Center City Saturday afternoon.
A group of protesters, describing their demonstration as "Abolition Weekend," gathered on Arch and 12th streets near the Pennsylvania Convention Center around noon where the conference is taking place. On a Facebook page promoting the rally, organizers outlined the reason for the protest.
"The International Association Of Chiefs Of Police is coming to have their national convention in Philadelphia," they wrote. "However, we are clear of the damage that these individuals inflict on communities across our country. This weekend, we are standing up, saying no more, and laying the groundwork to abolish this corrupt system of policing we have in the United States."
The protesters carried signs that included the words, “No Good Cop in a Racist System,” “No War on the Poor,” “Abolish the Police,” and “IACP has love 4 Nazis.” They also repeatedly chanted, "If we don't get it, shut it down," and "No racist police. No justice no peace."
The lying liberal media has been doing all they can to cover up the hate crimes against Donald Trump supporters as well as whites across the country.
Here's a compilation showing exactly what is been going on that the media refuses to discuss because they are complicit in the antiwhite hysteria that is now plaguing the world.
Mexican Jonathan Paredes capitalized on a late mistake by six-time champion Gary Hunt to win his maiden Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series title in Chile on Saturday.
The 28-year-old watched as Briton Hunt accidentally added an extra twist to his final dive, giving him a zero for the effort and opening the door for Parades.
The Mexico City native nailed his fourth and final dive to raise his World Series total to 720 points and take home the 2017 King Kahekili trophy.
Hunt ended the 2017 season with 710 points while fellow Briton Blake Aldridge finished third overall with 580.
On the women's side Australian Rhiannan Iffland defended her crown to win her second title at the iconic waterfall setting in Lago Ranco.
Iffland overcame injury to finish the season with 890 points overall, 150 points ahead of her countrywoman and second place finisher Helena Merten. Mexican Adriana Jimenez finished third with 690 points.
The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series began in 2009 and takes place across six locations worldwide. It sees competitors attempt multiple twists and somersaults mid-air from heights as great as 90 feet (27 meters).
The liberal media has been doing all it can to create fake controversies in order to hide the truth about president Trump success rate. Many of the stories that have been perpetrated through the lying liberal media have been nothing more than lies manufactured in order to distract the citizenry of the United States away from the successes of Pres. Trump.
The stock market has reached an all-time high and consistently reaches new highs every month, unemployment is at a 3 decade low, black unemployment is lower than even under Obama who created massive unemployment among black communities, and several other promises are currently being fulfilled or in the process of being fulfilled. Such as the border wall that is now being built in border states such as California, Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico.
For years now the liberal media has resorted to calling people racist that they disagree with politically, this is nothing more than projection considering that over the past 20 years every civil rights bill that is failed in Congress has failed because of Democratic votes not because of Republican votes.
Now the Democrats realize there beginning to lose minority votes as well they have resorted to simply using talking point catchphrases such as labeling people racist or white supremacist if they disagree with minorities or liberals.
Mother attacks teacher after confiscating her child's phone Pittsburgh mother Daishonta Marie Williams, 29, arrested for attacking teacher Janice Davis Watkins, 46, for confiscating her daughter's cellphone in class.
Waters starts off with, “Wow, what a moving evening this is.”…Then this: “I’m sitting here listening, watching, absorbing, thinking about Ali even though I never met him. And with this kind of inspiration, I will go and take out Trump tonight,” she said as the crowd roared in approval and Waters pumped her fist.
Maxine Waters vows "I will go and take Trump out tonight!"
Appearing at the Ali Forney Center gala in New York City, it only took Waters 27 seconds before she slammed Trump. Feeling inspired, Mad Maxine promised the group that she would 'go and take Trump out tonight!'.
Waters took the stage in front of Los Angeles City Hall on Sunday and quickly turned the event into a platform to push her personal political agenda.
She congratulated APLA Health for meeting online fundraising goals and briefly outlined the progress made to control the AIDS epidemic, then quickly pivoted to Trump and Republicans in Congress.
“We face unprecedented challenges today in our struggle against HIV and AIDS and I want you to know those people in Congress on the opposite side of the aisle from me control every branch of our federal government,” Waters said. “And we have, unfortunately, an unstable, erratic person in the White House.”
“We don’t know what this president will do, or say, or tweet from one day to the next. Don’t forget, this is not a political event, but I’m heading toward impeachment,” Waters said with a snicker.
“Another challenge we face today is Republicans’ determination to repeal the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare,” Waters continued.
“Without Obamacare, insurance companies will once again be able to deny care to the people living with HIV and other pre-existing conditions. Furthermore, without Obamacare states like California that expanded Medicaid will not be able to cover low-income adults living with HIV.
“And so, the House Republicans’ Obamacare repeal bill which passed the House in May will cut $100 billion from Medicaid and cause 23 million Americans to lose their health insurance,” the 79-year-old career politician said. “So far, the Senate has been great. It has refused to pass the bill.”
A Palestinian was caught on camera hurling a rock and hurting a 12-year-old Jewish boy who was bathing at a water spring in Hebron yesterday. The boy was injured in his head and rushed to the Hadassah Ein Karem Medical Center in Jerusalem for treatment. This took place while the boy was spending time at the Abrham Spring with two more children. The rock caused a cut on his head and a temporary loss of consciousness. Following the attack, the children ran back to the Tel Rumeida neighborhood to call for help. The boy was then taken to the hospital, where he was treated in the pediatric emergency unit. Members of the Jewish community in Hebron reacted with anger to the incident and claimed that it was the result of Palestinian incitement that happens on a regular basis. They added that they expect the IDF to eradicate the rock-throwing phenomenon that has become permanent in the city.

Alana Chasky, who worked at Riverdale Country School in Brevard County, was charged with lewd and lascivious battery on a victim between 12 and 16 years old and distributing obscene material to a minor, according to Click Orlando. Riverdale Country Day School is a school for students with emotional and behavioral disorders. According to police, the victim’s mother notified them that she found text messages and images between Chasky and her son in September. The unidentified victim’s mother was aware Chasky spent time with her son because she was supposed to be assisting with his behavioral issues. However, the unnamed mother told Chasky to stay away from her son in May because she thought their relationship had crossed the line. Despite the mother’s warnings, Chasky continued to pick the boy up and drop him off, police said.
Bizarre video footage has emerged of a humanoid figure floating in Australia's skies. It's not exactly clear what the object is but it is black and appears to be human-shaped. The video was posted recently on Facebook and a voice over that accompanies it says it was taken in Sydney last month, with the bizarre sighting lasting around five minutes. The strange object can be see hovering in the sky. It briefly disappears before reappearing, then disappearing for good.
Shocking video reveals the moment a St. Louis Community College professor was grabbed from behind by an officer, pulled to the ground, handcuffed and arrested at a board meeting. Steve Taylor, 53, is the adjunct math professor who was tackled after objecting to a rule the board put in place earlier in the meeting that threatened to kick out anyone who clapped. An arrest report said Taylor 'aggressively forced his way' toward board members during the public comment period at Thursday night's meeting. Taylor denied charging at them. Taylor told the St. Louis-Post Dispatch he later received a letter from the college telling him he was no longer allowed on campus, which he views as a firing. 'It was shocking and it all happened so fast,' he said. Later, he added, 'I would've been willing to leave but I was approached from behind and pulled violently without indication as to who was doing it or why.'
Chief Correspondent Stuart Ramsay reveals the horror of the cells beneath Raqqa's football stadium, where I.S. tortured prisoners with modified gym equipment before executing them.
We've all either had a nosy neighbor, or currently have nosy neighbors who are constantly in your business, this video is what happens when you have a psycho neighbor who won't stay out of your business no matter what you do in your own yard.
Listen to this woman become unhinged after she notices her neighbor has a pony in his yard that is fully fenced in. The lady claims she has the authority to demand that he even pick up the crap that the pony left in his yard because it also affects her yard, without actually explaining how that's the case.
The conversation goes on for several minutes back and forth before the woman is finally silenced and walks off into her house.
Julianne Moore, Bill Hader, Laura Dern, Sheryl Crow and Adam Scott also participate in the clip encouraging Americans to reach out to their Congressional representatives in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting.
In response to the devastating mass shooting in Las Vegas on Oct. 1, stars including Melissa McCarthy, Emma Stone, Bill Hader, Laura Dern, Sheryl Crow and Adam Scott have teamed up for a video showing how everyday Americans can call on their congressional lawmakers to reject legislation that would roll back gun silencer safety laws and to reject a national concealed carry reciprocity bill.
Emma Stone starts off the clip. "The mass shooting in Las Vegas has left all of us grieving, scared and angry," she says. "Knowing what to do about it can be confusing. Here's one thing that can make a difference right now," Bill Hader adds. A slew of stars then urge viewers to text "REJECT" to 644-33 to connect them to Everytown Gun Safety, which will then connect people with their Congressional representatives. The group also provides a script to use when speaking to lawmakers.
Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson (Fla.) was pushed by CNN's Alisyn Camerota on whether she misinterpreted President Donald Trump's intentions during his phone call to a Gold Star family, but the congresswoman pushed back, saying it "is not a question to ask me."
Camerota initiated the exchange on Friday by asking how the disagreement over Trump's call with Sgt. La David Johnson's widow will end.
"How does this end? Is it time for you all to get on a phone conversation? Is it time for you to speak to the president directly?" Camerota asked.
"If he wants to help us, I sent something to him with the Congressional Black Caucus, it's called the Commission of the Social Status of Black Men and Boys. It would help us if he made that a law and established that commission in the White House. That would help our entire community," Wilson responded.
"How about Congresswoman, from your end? Are you willing to allow today that it's possible that you misinterpreted what the president's intentions were in that phone call to Sergeant Johnson's wife?
"There's nothing to misinterpret. He said what he said. I just don't agree with it. I don't agree with that is what you should say to grieving families," Wilson said.
The answer didn't satisfy Camerota given that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and others have pointed out the congresswoman could have interpreted the president's words differently than he intended.
"But in terms of his intention not being callous and maybe he got the tone wrong, but that you misinterpreted his intention or his callousness?"
"I think my intentions are not important in this today. This has to do with the family that's grieving. It's their intentions. They were hurt. This is not a question to ask me because I can only imagine how she [Johnson's widow] feels," Wilson said.
"So let's get to the real basis of why everyone is so upset and everyone is so grief-stricken," Wilson continued. "It has absolutely nothing to do with the phone call. It has a lot to do with what we're talking about now."
While speaking with Peter Schweizer, the author of “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” and Breitbart News senior editor-at-large on Friday, Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs argued that the Uranium One deal could end up being the biggest scandal in the history of American politics.
Dobbs said, “There is no clear statement as to why we would give up, for any reason, any price, 20% of our uranium in this country. And that is a question that is left open still unanswered. and secondly, have you ever heard of anyone putting $145 million, at one moment, into the hands of the Clinton foundation? And the answer is, of course not. These questions, most basic and fundamental, were armed by the very committee made up of the very agencies, departments, and individuals responsible for national security. this, this is the biggest Obama scandal. I think it may well turn out to be the biggest scandal in American political history.”
