Dems Are ‘Overplaying Their Hand’ with Progressive Values That ‘Hobble’ Their Agenda

🌅

Newly elected progressive Democrat starlets are “overplaying their hand” and may make it increasingly difficult for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) “to move forward” with the party’s agenda after the 2018 midterm elections, attorney Harmeet Dhillon said Tuesday night on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) joined climate change activists in a protest outside Pelosi’s office on Tuesday during the first day of her own freshman orientation on Capitol Hill.

A video that circulated on social media showed Ocasio-Cortez (pictured above left) high-fiving the protesters with the Sunrise Movement and Justice Democrats — before addressing them.

Ocasio-Cortez also shared a photo of herself with newly elected lawmakers Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) — and she captioned it “Squad.”

These progressive women include the first black woman elected to Congress from Massachusetts, the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, and the youngest woman elected to Congress.

Meanwhile, Pelosi is seeking to reclaim the speakership of the House as some anti-Establishment incoming and incumbent members of the House refuse to support her.

“These women may as well be the four horsewomen of the apocalypse for the Democratic Party, if you ask me,” said Fox News host Laura Ingraham, “because they represent some of the most radical views in Congress: free college for all, free health care for all, the abolishment of ICE, and a Green New Deal where the U.S. depends entirely on renewable energy.”

Dhillon, founder of the Dhillon Law Group Inc. and the Republican National Committeewoman for California, told Ingraham that Ocasio-Cortez’s protest stunt was “a little wacky and alarming, I’m sure particularly for Nancy Pelosi and other senior leaders of the Democratic Party, because they’ve won the election already.”

“Now is the time for them to coalesce if they want to get everything done. But there’s already …read more

Monica Lewinsky Is Still Suffering from Her Affair with Bill Clinton

Monica Lewinsky says that if she were to see Hillary Clinton today in person, “I know that I would summon up whatever force I needed to again acknowledge to her — sincerely — how very sorry I am.”

She’s talking, of course, about her multi-year affair with then-President Bill Clinton, beginning back in the late 1990s when she was a very young White House intern and he was a 50-something married man — a man who also happened to work in the Oval Office.

Lewinsky, who is now 45 years old, has laid bare her soul in hours and hours of interviews about her affair with Clinton for a new A&E docu-series, “The Clinton Affair.”

The six-part series will air beginning on Sunday, November 18.

Clinton, of course, famously lied about the details of that relationship once it became known — which is why the House of Representatives impeached him in late 1998 and early 1999 (Clinton, of course, went on to complete his second term in office).

Lewinsky wrote a long explainer for Vanity Fair about the interviews she did for the A&E series — and explained her frustration with Clinton after the affair and also the way he was treated by the media, as The Daily Caller also noted, since they almost never asked him about it.

As she wrote in her Vanity Fair piece, “After occupying distant orbits for two decades, we finally reached the perigee. For the first time in more than 15 years, Bill Clinton was being asked directly about what transpired.”

“If you want to know what power looks like, watch a man safely, even smugly, do interviews for decades, without ever worrying whether he will be asked the questions he doesn’t want to answer. But in June of this year, during an interview on NBC, Craig Melvin …read more

Prince Charles Gives Squirrels Names and Lets Them in the House, Prince William Reveals

Prince Charles loves red squirrels so much that he gives them names — and keeps nuts in his jacket pockets for them.

Prince William, 36, reveals the quirks about his dad in a new interview with the U.K. magazine Country Life that Charles guest-edited to mark his 70th birthday on November 14. Charles backs efforts to help the rare squirrel — whose numbers have fallen from 3.5 million to 250,000 in his lifetime — in the U.K.

“He is completely infatuated by the red squirrels that live around the estate in Scotland — to the extent that he’s given them names and is allowing them into the house!” William tells the magazine in the special issue.

In another article on the animals, Charles notes, “They come into the house at Birkhall and we get them chasing each other round and round inside. If I sit there quietly, they will do so around me. Sometimes, when I leave my jackets on a chair with nuts in the pockets, I see them with their tails sticking out, as they hunt for nuts — they are incredibly special creatures.”

William also praises his father’s lead in encouraging a love for the nature and the outdoors.

“His passion for the environment and the natural world is something I want to repeat in the way I raise George, Charlotte and Louis,” William tells the magazine.

William adds that some of his earliest memories are from the Balmoral estate in the Highlands of Scotland, “where my father taught me about the natural world around us — from the burns to the trees to the hills. He was also there when …read more

See Meghan Markle and Prince George Crack Up in the Most Candid Royal Family Photo Ever

Say cheese!

The royals are all smiles in a new set of family pictures taken in the gardens of Clarence House by photographer Chris Jackson and released in honor of Prince Charles‘ 70th birthday on Wednesday, including one exceptionally candid image.

From mom-to-be Meghan Markle‘s huge laugh to Kate Middleton‘s familiar outfit choice, here are five things to look for in the special snap:

1. Prince George Shares a Close Bond with Grandpa

The 5-year-old son of Kate and Prince William is clearly comfortable with Prince Charles, laughing while perched on his grandfather’s knee. Charles makes sure to keep George (in Amaia) steady by placing his hands under the little prince’s arms as he sits on the bench in front of his two sons.

In the new documentary marking Charles’ 70th birthday, William says his father is “brilliant” with George, Princess Charlotte, 3, and nearly 7-month-old Prince Louis. But William also says he wishes that his dad would slow down enough to be able to spare more time for them.

“It’s something I’m working more heavily on, put it that way,” William, 36, said in the documentary, which aired on BBC One last week. “I think he does have time for it, but I would like him to have more time with the children.”

2. Princess Charlotte Is a Cuddler

Although Princess Charlotte often clings to her parents — from being picked up by Kate to holding hands with William — it’s clear that she has plenty of love to spread around. In the shot, Charlotte grins as she leans in close to Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, who wraps one hand around the princess and points towards the camera with the other.

Charlotte was also recently photographed getting cuddles from her mom’s pal Sophie Carter, …read more
