Brian Williams called out for ‘patronizing’ Rachel Maddow

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 23:57:26 GMT

Brian Williams has been rebuked by MSNBC for being “patronizing” to the network’s biggest star, Rachel Maddow. After Williams hijacked Maddow’s show to break the Syria missile news earlier this month, he turned to her live on air at the end of the segment and said,“Thanks for visiting tonight. Glad you were a part of our coverage.” Viewers — who were already mad that MSNBC slipped “Lyin’ Brian” in to break the news when Maddow was already at the anchor desk talking about Syria — flipped out. @Barbvas tweeted, “Annoyed to hear Brian Williams thanking Rachel Maddow for assisting with...

Will Steve Bannon take over Heritage after Jim DeMint leaves? Mike Needham won't say

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 23:52:05 GMT

Will blistering populist Steve Bannon replace fiery conservative Sen. Jim DeMint as the next president of the Heritage Foundation? Heritage Action CEO Michael Needham won't say. Asked by Chris Wallace whether Heritage would be Bannon's "safety net as he's forced out of the White House," Needham demurred on "Fox News Sunday." "I can tell you," Needham replied, "there's a lot of speculation in the room and in the media that never misses a chance to divide and attack conservatives." With that non-answer, speculation over the fate of Heritage Foundation will no doubt reach a new fever pitch. News of DeMint's...

Missouri Medical School May Lose Accreditation For Being Too White

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 23:47:10 GMT

The University of Missouri School of Medicine is facing the loss of its accreditation because they have too many white students and faculty. The media is acting like this is perfectly reasonable. From KCUR: STAT, a national publication that covers health, medicine and science, came out Wednesday with a lengthy story on the medical school at the University of Missouri-Columbia and it isn’t pretty. The publication says the med school is in danger of losing its accreditation next year because it has so few minority students and faculty. Note, if they lose their accreditation, STAT says their degrees would be...

Rich States Growl At Trump Tax Plan

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 23:46:57 GMT

The Trump Administration’s stated intention to eliminate the state and local tax deduction (SALT) is likely to meet major opposition from big blue states’ Congressional delegations. The New York Times reports: To some, it is a tax on blue-state liberalism. To others, President Trump’s plan to end the federal deduction for state and local taxes would eliminate a costly perk for the wealthy. But to many taxpayers, the deduction is a cherished break that can save them thousands of dollars in double taxation. Mr. Trump and House Republicans, riding a wave of conservative and populist sentiment, are pushing to end...

Trump confers with Asia allies on North Korea nuclear threat

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 23:17:29 GMT

U.S. President Donald Trump is stepping up outreach to allies in Asia to discuss the North Korean nuclear threat and make sure all are "on the same page" if action was needed, a top White House official said on Sunday. White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said Trump would speak to the leaders of Singapore and Thailand on Sunday, after North Korea test-launched another missile that Washington and Seoul said was unsuccessful but which drew widespread international condemnation. The telephone calls follow Trump's conversation on Saturday night with Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte. A week ago, Trump spoke with the...

John Kasich Opens Up On Trump's First 100 Days, Divides In American Politics - His Political Future

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 23:14:22 GMT

Gov. John Kasich of Ohio wants to bridge the divides in America. And that's exactly what Kasich, a Republican presidential contender in the 2016 election, spoke with Business Insider about this week while on tour promoting his new book, "Two Paths: America Divided or United." At times fiercely critical of President Donald Trump, both before and after the campaign, Kasich has positioned himself within the Republican Party as an outspoken voice on healthcare, the opioid crisis, immigration, and trade. And while he's not revealing his plans, there is certainly plenty of speculation about whether he will make another run at...

Trump to CBS’s Dickerson: ‘I Love Your Show — I Call It Deface the Nation’

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 23:11:24 GMT

Partial transcript as follows: TRUMP: Well, it’s a tough job. But I’ve had a lot of tough jobs. I’ve had things that were tougher, although I’ll let you know that better at the end of eight years. Perhaps eight years. Hopefully, eight years. But I’ll let you know later on. I think we’ve done very well with foreign policy. I think we’ve done very, very well with relationships with other leaders. I think we’re doing great on trade deals. It’s set. And I think we’re doing well. I mean, our country is being out-traded at every single point. We’re losing...

Cops: Teacher told girl to kill herself, forced other kids to bully her

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 23:07:11 GMT

(CNN)The 11-year-old girl was relentlessly bullied. And the culprit, police say, were her teachers. One of them told the girl to "go kill herself" and threatened to fail other students if they didn't fight the girl, police said. And when that teacher was removed from the classroom, a second teacher allegedly kept up the abuse. The two Louisiana teachers, Ann Marie Shelvin and Tracy Gallow, now face criminal charges. St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz said he learned of the accusations back in February after the girl's mother filed a complaint. The mother returned to the sheriff's office in April...

‘What the hell?’: TV screens go dark as Spectrum cuts channels, raises prices

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 22:51:48 GMT

The television screen went dark a month ago as Daniel Fitzgerald watched “American Pickers” on the History Channel. Perplexed, he grabbed the remote and surfed through CNN, Disney, Comedy Central and the rest of the standard cable lineup. Many of them were gone, too. In their place was a black background with a small block of text advising him that his subscription no longer provided those channels. “I thought, ‘What the hell? I just paid the cable bill,’” Fitzgerald recalled last week in the tiny Lexington [Kentucky] apartment he shares with his disabled 16-year-old son. Fitzgerald called Spectrum, the subsidiary...

Leftists, Ask Yourselves: ‘Should I Stay or Should I Go?'

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 22:37:25 GMT

Since the left views Donald Trump as Hitler and the Republican Party – currently dominant in Congress and the majority of statehouses­ – as accomplices in his fascist tyranny, the existential question each liberal-progressive ought to be asking himself is the very question a punk rock band made famous as the refrain of their most popular tune. The lyrics of The Clash's 1982 song "Should I Stay or Should I Go" reflect the singer's indecisiveness about whether he should remain in a relationship with a woman who today entices him and tomorrow plays hard to get. "One day it's fine,...

People Are Furiously Canceling Their NYT Subscriptions After An Op-Ed Disputing Climate Change

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 22:35:41 GMT

The New York Times' decision to publish a debut op-ed column by the newly-hired Bret Stephens, a notable denier of *anthropogenic climate change, has sparked an uproar from the paper's subscribers, who are furious that the Times decided to publish a column that is contrary to much of the modern-day scientific consensus on the dangers of global warming. In his column, Stephens compared the "certitude" with which Hillary Clinton's advisers believed she would win the 2016 election to climate scientists' repeated warnings about climate change risks. As evidence, Stephens said that inaccurate polling data during the 2016 campaign proves that...

The Unfortunate Phenomenon of Black Political Groupthink

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 22:29:33 GMT

My black brother called me from Baltimore feeling frustrated and alone. He is surrounded by blacks, including his own household, who believe everything they are told by fake news media. No amount of data, logic, or truth seems to penetrate their wall of brain-dead loyalty to the Democrat party and worship of Obama. My brother said that even at his all-black church every sermon includes digs against Trump. In his black circles, spouting the truth about Obama is not tolerated. They angrily reject data confirming that blacks moved backwards culturally and economically after eight years of Obama. As a strong...

North Korea Threatens To Sink U.S. Nuclear Submarine Deployed To South Korea

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 22:15:07 GMT

SEOUL, April 30 (Yonhap) -- After the United States deployed a nuclear-powered submarine and an aircraft carrier to South Korean waters amid high inter-Korean tensions, North Korea on Sunday threatened to sink the underwater vessel, accusing America of stepping up military intimidation. "The moment the USS Michigan tries to budge even a little, it will be doomed to face the miserable fate of becoming a underwater ghost without being able to come to the surface," the North's propaganda website Uriminzokkiri said in a posting. "The urgent fielding of the nuclear submarine in the waters off the Korean Peninsula, timed to...

Politico Poll Of White House Press Corps Includes Grand Total Of Three Republicans

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 22:08:55 GMT

Only three Republicans are represented in Politico Magazine‘s poll of the White House press corps asking their thoughts about covering President Trump's administration. According to the fourth annual poll, 63 press corps members were surveyed, and only five percent of them were registered Republicans, the same percentage that listed "other." Sixteen percent were Democrats, 37 percent were independents, and 37 percent were non-registered. Last year, none of the 72 members of the White House press corps it surveyed were Republicans, effectively showing an uptick of three members of the GOP in the poll. Since the election, the mainstream press has...

Trump did not clear Duterte invitation with State Department: report

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 21:32:12 GMT

President Trump invited controversial President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines to the White House without consulting the State Department, according to a new report from the New York Times. The Times reported Sunday that both the National Security Council and the State Department were caught off guard by the announcement, which set off criticism from human rights groups. “By essentially endorsing Duterte’s murderous war on drugs, Trump is now morally complicit in future killings,” John Sifton of Human Rights Watch told the Times. Trump and Duterte spoke by phone Saturday, when Trump invited the leader to the White House "to...

Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to President Trump, will soon accept a position outside the White House, two sources told the Washington Examiner on Sunday.

Times columnist blasted by ‘nasty left’ for climate change piece

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 21:04:46 GMT

A New York Times columnist who was “harangued” for months by “bullying Trump supporters” says he’s now being blasted by the “nasty left” — after he penned a piece about how absurd it was to blindly support climate change, without listening to both sides of the argument.

PM honours servicemen from Coral Sea

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 21:00:30 GMT

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has thanked the Australian and American servicemen who fought in the pivotal World War Two Battle of the Coral Sea on behalf of the generations who followed. "Our freedoms were secured by the bravery of the fighting men on those ships and the pilots who flew through everything the enemy and the weather could throw in their way," he told a dawn service in Townsville to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the battle. Families from sailors who served on the aircraft carrier, the USS Lexington that was lost in the battle, have flown from America to...

French voters skeptical Macron, Le Pen have answers on unemployment, security

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 20:37:15 GMT

A week before a decisive second round in France's presidential election, many voters are skeptical that either of the two candidates can solve chronic unemployment or tackle security concerns, a poll published on Sunday found. According to the Ifop poll, 45 percent of voters believe the two finalists would not put an end to unemployment, which has for years stood close to 10 percent in France. And 36 percent say neither candidate is able to protect France from attacks. France has been under a state of emergency since 2015 and has suffered a spate of Islamist militant attacks mostly perpetrated...

France kills more than 20 militants on Mali, Burkina border

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 20:32:47 GMT

France has killed more than 20 militants hiding in a forest near the border between the West African countries of Mali and Burkina Faso this weekend, its regional force said in a statement. The operation followed the death of a French soldier nearby earlier this month. It involved both air and ground strikes, the statement said. It did not identify the militant group. Mali has been regularly hit by Islamist militant violence, despite a 2013 French-led operation to drive them out of key northern cities they had seized. It extended a state of emergency by six months this weekend. Burkinabe...

Mélenchon, Hero to France’s Far-Left, Will Not Vote for Le Pen, But Won’t Endorse Macron

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 20:27:14 GMT

Mélenchon predicted that forcing France to choose between a candidate of “the extreme right” and one of “extreme finance” would led to a political crisis, and left open the possibility that he would submit a blank ballot, a form of protest vote permitted under French electoral law. (Mélenchon’s platform included provisions for voting to be made mandatory, and for blank ballots to be recognized under law.)
