McCaskill Accuses MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ of Anti-Hillary Bias

Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) made an appearance and took issue with show host Joe Scarborough for he and his guests’ criticisms of Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton apparently changing her views on the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement. McCaskill, a supporter of Clinton, went through a list of other presidential candidates that have changed their positions on certain issues, including Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT), former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) and Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump. “I’ve been listening to you guys this morning,” McCaskill said. “I think some of it has been unfair and not balanced and you look at Marco Rubio — you look at Jeb Bush and the changes in their position to twist and distort themselves to appeal to the same people who want to elect Donald Trump president. It’s something to see. And I just don’t hear enough talk about that.” “I just don’t think to pick on her because she is now saying she doesn’t think this is going to meet her high bar for various protections that she thinks needs to be in place,” she continued. “She and I may disagree on it. I haven’t decided

Europe Braces For Second, THREE MILLION-Strong Migrant Wave After Russia’s Syria Bombing

migrant wave
Europe is bracing itself for a second migrant wave from Syria as up to three million people begin to flee the country in the wake of the Russian military intervention. Russian warships fired 26 cruise missiles from the Caspian Sea yesterday. The missiles flew 900 miles over Iran and Iraq before hitting targets in the area around Aleppo in northern Syria. Since entering the fray last week, Russia has hit 112 different targets. Yesterday’s assault saw 11 locations added to that list, according to Sergei Shoigu, Russia’s defence minister. The strikes have been carefully co-ordinated with a ground offensive by Assad loyalists, backed by Russia, Iran and Hezbollah. Earlier this week it was reported that Russia’s President Putin is preparing a 150,000-strong ground force to enter Syria and take the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa, the Islamic State’s de facto capital city, located just over 100 miles east of Aleppo. Unsurprisingly, the massive escalation in fighting in the region is expected to precipitate a new wave of refugees. Turkish officials have estimated that as many as 3 million may leave northern Syria, many of whom will want to make their way into Europe as hundreds of thousands have already done. If

FS1’s Katie Nolan Calls Cowboys DE Greg Hardy a ‘Garbage Human,’ Rips Media, NFL for Enabling Him

On Wednesday’s “Garbage Time” on Fox Sports1, host Katie Nolan reacted to Dallas Cowboys defensive end and convicted domestic abuser Greg Hardy’s interview about coming back after serving a four-game suspension for being found guilty of choking his former girlfriend, slamming her on a couch covered with guns and threatening to kill her. In the interview Wednesday, Hardy told reporters that he hopes to come back “guns blazing” and he wished out-loud that the sister of Tom Brady’s wife would be at the game this week between the Cowboys and the New England Patriots. Nolan called Greg Hardy a “garbage human” and proceeded to rip into the NFL, the Cowboys’ public relations and the sports media for enabling Hardy and plastering his controversial statements on their sites while also showing they care about women for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. “Greg Hardy had to pretend to respect women for 12 minutes, just 12 minutes, and he couldn’t even do that. And what’s worse, is no one stopped him. They let him go on about girlfriends and guns and posted video of it on because who [expletive] cares? Women won’t see it,” stated Nolan. “What matters to you? Seriously, what matters to you?

Watch: Hillary Likens NRA to ‘Iranians and Communists’

Wednesday in Iowa, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton compared the staunch Second Amendment advocacy of the National Rifle Association (NRA) to “the Iranians and Communists.” Clinton said “I also have said that I would take certain executive actions to close these loopholes. And it may be, because you know the White House has time ahead — it maybe be that the White House will want to do that. And I would be fully supportive of that, whatever we can do to send a message. Now the real answer to this is for gun owners to form a different organization that supports the Second Amendment, supports their rights to own guns, use guns, go hunting, goes target shooting, but stands against the absolutism of the NRA.” She added, “You know, the NRA’s position reminds me of negotiating with the Iranians or the Communists. You know there is no possible discussion and it’s for political purposes.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
