When other players joined him, President Trump called on team owners to fire them. "San Francisco released Kaepernick and...



Trump hosts French president for 1st state visit

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 05:44:02 GMT

Their relationship began with a show of machismo –- an extended, white-knuckle handshake on their first meeting last year in Belgium. Emmanuel Macron had reportedly studied Donald Trump’s style of domineering power-grabbing handshakes, apparently prepared to avoid being outdone by his counterpart. Instead, it was President Trump who at one point in the 5-second-long handshake attempted to withdraw his hand from Macron's firm grasp. The maneuver marked the start of what has become a close partnership between the two leaders, who recently joined forces along with the United Kingdom to strike Syria earlier this month. "It's no secret that President...



Dem Congresswoman Rips DNC Lawsuit Against Trump Campaign: ‘I’m Not Very Supportive Of It’

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 04:46:17 GMT

Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier (Calif.) told CNN's Wolf Blitzer Friday the Democratic National Committee's new lawsuit against the Donald Trump campaign, the Russian government, and WikiLeaks is "ill-conceived." Blitzer started his interview by asking whether the lawsuit lends credence to the idea that the Russia investigation is sour grapes from the Democratic Party. "I think this lawsuit is ill-conceived," Speier said. "And I'm not very supportive of it." "I'm not interested in a political tit for tat, I'm interested in getting to the truth and if there's criminal conduct that's been engaged in, holding people accountable," she continued. When Blitzer...



LIBERAL CIVIL WAR PLANNED PARENTHOOD FIGHTS UNIONIZATION ATTEMPT FROM SEIU

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 04:26:26 GMT

Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains is fighting a unionization attempt from Service Employees International Union, despite the labor giant's emphatic support for the nation's largest abortion provider. In November the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the agency in charge of union elections and settling workplace disputes, granted SEIU Local 105's petition to hold an election for joining the union at several abortion clinics in Colorado. Planned Parenthood objected to the organization campaign and appealed to the Republican-controlled board. It disputed the fact that SEIU was attempting to organize a micro-unit and improperly excluded Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains...

Macron's party divided as France debates immigration law

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 04:18:00 GMT

French lawmakers were set to vote Sunday on a controversial immigration law that has exposed unprecedented divisions in President Emmanuel Macron’s young centrist party. At least one MP, Jean-Michel Clement, is planning to vote against the law — at a cost of being kicked out of Macron’s En Marche (Republic On The Move) party — while several others said they would abstain. The lower-house national assembly was supposed to vote on the bill Friday, but the fractious debate stretched into the weekend due to more than 1,000 amendments proposed by MPs. More than 200 of the changes were suggested by...



It’s Fun to Watch The Liberals’ and Never Trumpers’ Coup Dreams Die

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 04:15:27 GMT

Face it: Hillary Clinton will never be Playmate of the Year. We know this because apparently only a former Playmate of the Year can finally be the one to take down Donald Trump and The Smartest Woman Ever™ was demonstrably unable to make that happen. This latest deus ex mockable solution to the problem of America electing a guy the elite disapproves of, convincing America to somehow turn on its President because a decade ago he engaged in in real life what hordes of creepy shut-ins engaged in in their own minds, is simply hilarious.Trump hooked up with a Playboy Playmate!...

D.C. Democratic Lawmaker Donated to Event Where Farrakhan Denounced Jews

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 04:04:19 GMT

D.C. City Councilman Trayon White Sr. (D.) donated to an event in Chicago where National of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan again denounced Jews. White donated $500 from his constituent services account to the Chicago event known as "Saviours’ Day," the Washington Post reports. Campaign finance law dictates that the constituent services account's privately-raised funds must be used on D.C. residents. White denied knowing about the payment. However, the account's treasurer, Darryl Ross, said otherwise. "He said to me, ‘I want you to make a payment to the Nation of Islam for Saviours’ Day,’" Ross told the Post. "So I went...



JACK GOLDSMITH ON THE DEEP STATE

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 03:13:34 GMT

First, Goldsmith should know. He was a high ranking Justice Department official — head the Office of Legal Counsel — during part of the George W. Bush administration. This placed him in the middle of issues regarding national security, electronic surveillance, and the like. He also worked closely with James Comey, including during the famous incident at Attorney General Ashcroft’s hospital bed that made Comey famous (or at least a legend in his own mind). At any rate, Goldsmith has this to say about the deep state and Donald Trump: America doesn’t have coups or tanks in the street. But...

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 02:21:23 GMT

British woman found guilty for posting 'racist' Snap Dogg lyrics on Instagram (UK thought crime)

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 02:17:18 GMT

A British teenager was punished by a court after she posted allegedly racist lyrics from rapper Snap Dogg that said "kill a snitch n---a, rob a rich n---a." Chelsea Russell, a 19-year-old from Liverpool, argued that the words from the song "I'm Trippin" were not offensive, and that she had posted them in memory of a 13-year-old boy who was killed in a car crash last summer. But the lyrics on Russell's Instagram biography, which any other user can see, were reported to police last year and transferred to a unit for hate crimes over the alleged racism, according to...

NYT Repents for Sin of Covering Hillary’s Leaked E-Mails

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 01:39:58 GMT

Amy Chozick, who covered the Hillary Clinton campaign for the New York Times and wrote the new campaign book Chasing Hillary, has an essay on the front of the paper's Sunday Review in which she sports sackcloth and ashes for the sin of actually reporting on publicly available emails leaked from the Clinton campaign -- while ignoring all the dirty details in the emails themselves: WikiLeaks tweeted a link to emails from the Gmail account of Mrs. Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, including excerpts from her speeches to Wall Street firms. Chozick berated herself for actually reporting anti-Hillary information that...



Police chiefs implore Congress not to pass concealed-carry reciprocity gun law

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 01:39:16 GMT

The nation's police chiefs are rising up against another conservative crime-fighting initiative, sending a letter to leaders of Congress on Thursday opposing a bill that would allow gun owners with concealed-carry permits in one state to carry their concealed weapons in all 50 states. The letter from the International Association of Chiefs of Police, representing 18,000 police departments across the United States, and Boston Police Commissioner William Evans targets the "Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act," which passed the House in December and is now assigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The letter is endorsed by 473 police officials from 39 states,...

Environmentalists plan logging to restore redwood forests

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 00:12:00 GMT

Environmentalists who have fought loggers for generations have a surprising new strategy to save California’s storied old-growth redwood forests: Logging.

Long Hours, Low Pay Push Some Democratic Campaign Workers To Unionize

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 00:06:36 GMT

Many political campaign workers spend long hours at low pay, living off of pizza and coffee, all in the hope of seeing their candidate win. Now, labor organizers are setting their sights on bringing those workers into the labor movement at a time when the percentage of U.S. workers who belong to a union is falling steadily. The newly formed Campaign Workers Guild claims to have helped organize at least a dozen Democratic campaigns and one political consulting firm. "It's been far too long that workers in this industry have been exploited. And now we're finally standing together to put...
