But Republicans never freed their Persian slaves, i.e. criminal monarchists. Then again being water boys of the Western powers is such a second nature (and almost genetics) for criminal monarchists that they shall always be slaves to their Western masters for eternity.

Remember Iraj Khan, these are the same people who let slaves go free, NOT democrat party.
Abe Lincoln and his Republican party issued " Emancipation Proclamation" to release black folks from slavery and gave them freedom.

Perez is progressive, albeit not as left as Ellison and certainly not as skilled at the grassroots activism the Dems need. The bigger dilemma for the fractured Democrats is the optics of one candidate representing the party’s Obama-era establishment and the other, Keith Ellison, representing the growing progressive wing of Sen. Bernie Sanders. With Perez landing on Hillary Clinton's short list of VP candidates and having served two administrations as Deputy Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights under Attorney General Janet Reno and as Obama's Secretary of Labor, it's easy to cast-type him as a status-quo/establishment politician. While that may not be necessarily fair, the perceptions are not helpful for a Democratic party trying to unify.

Perez also didn't help matters when in early February he said in a meeting with Kansas lawmakers that “We heard loudly and clearly yesterday from Bernie supporters that the process was rigged and it was. And you’ve got to be honest about it.” Facing heat for his blunt assessment of the primaries, he later walked-back his statement, “I have been asked by friends about a quote and want to be clear about what I said and that I misspoke. Hillary became our nominee fair and square, and she won more votes in the primary—and general—than her opponents.” Ahh, politicians :) Perez was asked about this during the CNN DNC Chair Debate, and well, if you enjoy the sight of a political-head painfully dancing around a straight-forward question, this clip's for you:



With the Debbie Wasserman Schultz debacle (DNC leak) in mind and deep divisions within the party, the Dems missed a golden opportunity to help restore trust and unity that can re-energize their party.

From FiveThirtyEight: "And both Perez and Ellison are well to the left of center on the spectrum of beliefs within the Democratic Party, though Ellison’s views are more deeply left. In fact, he’s more liberal than 90 percent of House Democrats, according to FiveThirtyEight ideological ratings that look at congressional voting records, donors and public statements. Ellison scores a -57 in our ratings (-100 is most liberal; +100 is most conservative). The average Democratic member of the House in the 114th Congress (2015-16) had a congressional record voting score of -40. Perez never served in Congress, but he did make an abbreviated run for attorney general of Maryland and has made public statements on political issues. Using these, we estimated his average score at -45, which is not as liberal as Ellison’s but indicates that he may be further to the left than the average Democratic member of the House."

Criminal monarchist always have a hard time recalling how their clown 'king' was brought to power by reactionary mullahs.
During the reign of corrupt and bloody monarchy Iranians perceived the clown 'king' as illegitimate, inept and dysfunctional.
For these and many other reasons monarchy was the incubator of Islamic Republic of Hell.

"Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, and Libya."
From the text

That is very sad. During shah days, the name of Iran used to come next to France and other European countries.
Now it comes next to hungry, starving nation such as Somalia or terrorist nation such as Sudan.... That is what communists and criminal mullahs brought for Iranians.
Below video shows how Europeans perceived our Monarch.

Not the least bit surprising. I'm increasingly buying into the notion that the Democratic party is where progressive politics go to die and the DNC race is just another reminder that we need alternative parties and movements. For the sake of a democracy that adequately serves/represents Americans, the corporate duopoly needs to be broken-up.

Just listen to any of these House Republicans!
They are supporting the billionaire white boy all the way!
enabling him not to show his tax returns,
protecting him by stopping an investigation regarding his connection to Russia, repealing health care coverage for millions, a long list.
The Repulican party is The real swamp of American politics, absolutely reactionary, completely hopeless.

Just think about it, Uday and Qusay Trump are going be getting escorted around the world for the next four years on the American people's tax dollars as they rake in tens of millions in personal profit for their family. And you better believe that all the while they'll be going out of their way to accommodate themselves and their entourages at Trump or family friend owned facilities essentially funneling taxpayer money directly into their own pockets.

That's not even considering the ridiculous Melania staying in NYC situation.

Professor Predicts Donald Trump Impeachment

ChamoshChamoshvnd ChamoshChamoshvnd (@ChamoshChamoshvnd) on
There's a strong legal case for impeachment. Because foreign governments and lobbyists could already be paying millions into Trump’s businesses -- by renting out suites at the Trump International in DC and his hotels everywhere, he’s likely daily violating a clause of the Constitution barring the President from accepting gifts from foreign states.

And that could just be the tip of the iceberg. The White House is swimming in conflict of interest scandals, from Trump promoting his daughter’s jewelry line on Twitter, to his wife Melania citing a “unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” as First Lady to make millions in merchandising.

Adding fuel to the fire are this week's bombshell reports about the Trump team's regular contacts with Russian intelligence during the election campaign.

Impeachment won’t happen overnight, and it will only move forward if we we build a strong case for it in Congress and in the court of public opinion. But we can win this. So let’s start big out of the gate with a million strong petition making the case:

Add your voice now: A million calling to impeach Trump
secure.avaaz.org/campaign/en/a_million_to_impeach_trump_loc_rb/

We’re in for the fight of our lives, but we also know the strength and persistence of this community can make miracles happen -- from putting hundreds of thousands in the streets for climate justice, to big wins worldwide on conservation, anticorruption and refugee rights. Let's keep fighting for the big things that count.

With hope and determination,

Joseph, Dalia, Nick, Nataliya and the whole Avaaz team

That was one memorable press conference! An instant classic I must say. Here are some of the best quotes from Donald Trump's circus-like presser:

“ISIS has spread like cancer — another mess I inherited.”

“I guess it was the biggest Electoral College win since Ronald Reagan.”
(totally untrue)

“This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine.”

“Drugs are becoming cheaper than candy bars.”

“What [Flynn] did wasn't wrong.”

“I must say that I never get phone calls from the media.”

”The leaks are real, but the news is fake.”

"When WikiLeaks, which I had nothing to do with, comes out and happens to give, they are not giving classified information.”

“ ‘Fox and Friends’ is the most honest morning show.”

“I’m not ranting and raving. I’m just telling you, you’re dishonest people.”

“Nuclear holocaust would be like no other. [Russia's] a very powerful nuclear country and so are we."

“Does anybody really think Hillary Clinton would be tougher on Russia than Donald Trump?”

“Lots of things are done with uranium, including some bad things.”

“I am the least anti-Semitic person that you’ve ever seen in your entire life. Number two, racism, the least racist person."

“Some of the cases, they’re having DACA, and they’re gang members and they’re drug dealers, too.”

“I've known her for a long time. The things they say are so unfair.”

There's nothing complicated about the legality of leaking. If you witness something illegal or immoral, you should let the world or the law enforcement know about it, even if a contract or some rule prohibits you.

Unreal. So Donald Trump actually tweeted: "The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington?"
