Fox News' Bill O'Reilly's comments about those in the black community who don't want to talk race, but rather only profit and advance their agenda using racism as a springboard, didn't sit well with Democratic Rep. Barbara Lee.
Rep. Paul Ryan is making poverty a signature issue as he tries to broaden his appeal ahead of a possible presidential run in 2016. But in being more vocal about the issue, he's had to defend himself and his message against allegations of racism.
Rep. Barbara Lee, California Democrat, blasted Rep. Paul Ryan on Thursday for comments he made about the work ethic of inner city men that many labeled as racist and out of touch.
The representative of a human rights group headed by a designated al Qaeda terrorist was denied a visa by the State Department after being invited by congressional Democrats to discuss drone strikes.
California Rep. Barbara Lee and other House Democrats have introduced a bill that would establish a Department of Peacebuilding, which would be responsible for tasks from scaling back U.S. military actions to gang violence to school bullying.
If Oscars were awarded for liberal hysteria, California's Rep. Barbara Lee would be a perennial contender. On Tuesday, at a congressional forum on the shooting death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin, Ms. Lee proclaimed that it was the result of "a toxic and deadly mix."

Ms. Lee said such phrases are "code words" — she didn't say for what, but ostensibly to mask a speaker's racist tendencies — that only "get in the way of solving the real problems," Politico reported.
"Unfortunately, we've come to expect language like 'welfare queens,' 'food stamp president,' and now 'race hustlers' from the right wing and Mr. O'Reilly," she said, in a statement reported by Politico. "It's disgusting and divisive and should never be accepted in our national discourse."
