    BERLIN (Reuters) - Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday Donald Trump must be shown appropriate respect for holding the office of the U.S. president, even if she may differ with him on policy issues. Merkel, campaigning for a fourth term in office after a Sept. 24 national election, has refused to bend to pressure from her Social Democrat (SPD) rivals to resist demands by Trump for NATO members to increase their defense spending. As a committed Atlanticist, she has stressed the strength of German relations with the United States even when flagging differences in opinion on policy. "If you take...

    The Democratic National Committee could be leading the resistance against Trump, but it can't get out of its own way. In theory, the Democrats should be in a great position. Donald Trump has a 35 percent approval rating. The president's disdain for his Republican in the House and the Senate is making it difficult for him to pass major legislation and causing a rift within the GOP. There are more Democratic candidates preparing to run for House seats than any time in recent memory. And though Democrats have lost some high-profile special elections in 2017, they've done well in lesser...

    Bernie Sanders supporters switched their allegiance to Donald Trump in large enough numbers last November to sway the election for the real estate billionaire, according to an analysis of voter data released Tuesday by the blog Political Wire. Since Trump’s shock victory over Hillary Clinton, much discussion has focused on the degree to which passionate Sanders supporters’ refusal to embrace Clinton led to the Republican winding up in the White House. According to the analysis of the 2016 Cooperative Congressional Election Survey, fewer than 80 percent of those who voted for Sanders, an independent, in the Democratic primary did the...

    Ripples Nigeria ^ | August 24, 2017 | The Editor
    The United Nations has raised a rare racism alarm in the US as it called on American President Donald Trump to ‘unequivocally’ condemn racist speech and crimes warning that failure to do so may give room to further violence. The rare “early warning and urgent action” statement, which is reserved for serious situations, was issued by the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) on Wednesday. Trump has been under constant condemnation after he blamed “both sides” for violence that broke out at a rally, organised by neo-Nazis and white supremacists, in Charlottesville, Virginia earlier this month. Yesterday,...

    car has driven through protesters at a trans lives matter vigil honoring a black transgender woman who was shot dead by police in St Louis. The memorial for Kenneth 'Kiwi' Herring turned violent on Wednesday night when a Mercedes driver drove into a middle of a crowd of protesters who were blocking the road. His car appeared to be attacked by the activists before he drove away, leaving three people with minor injuries, according to the Riverfront Times. The driver - a white male - was later arrested. People were gathered to honor the life of Herring, a 30-year-old black...

    Supporters of Planned Parenthood are trying to boost the abortion giant’s shaky bottom line by selling sex toys, uterus-themed emojis and sex-positive wrapping paper. The merchandise may be X-rated, but abortion opponents say it’s just another argument in favor of weaning Planned Parenthood off taxpayer funding.

    Mike Pence for president, I say — president of the US Senate. It’s just the assignment for a pickle like this, when President Trump isn’t on speaking terms with his own party’s leader in the upper house. Trump is understandably upset at the failure of the Senate to pass health-care and tax reforms. It’s gotten so bad with Mitch McConnell, according to CNN, that the two Republican titans have been cussing each other out. Privately, The New York Times claims, McConnell has even been voicing doubts that the Trump presidency can be salvaged (not that the majority leader’s own approval...

The rally is titled “No to Marxism in America.” The rally organizer, a biological man who identified himself as a transgender woman to media outlets, claims the rally is not a “right-wing” rally, embraces diversity and is meant to oppose the spread of Marxism in Berkeley.

    As the violence in Charlottesville has reignited a national debate over monuments dedicated to Confederate-era and other controversial figures, New York City is conducting its own review over "symbols of hate" and possibly taking aim at Christopher Columbus. New York City Mayor Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced a 90-day review by a commission of all "symbols of hate" on city property in the wake of violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that was protesting the planned removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee. The move has opened questions about a variety of monuments...

According to a report in The Birmingham Mail: The members of a group known as The Chyna Crew humiliated and sexually assaulted a woman who acted as a runner for other pushers.

    While individuals have been playing musical instruments that require vibrating lips to produce sound since before the dawn of recorded time – we need only think of the shofar, didgeridoo, and conch shell to begin a list of lip-blown aerophones of ancient origin – there is much about playing such instruments that remains a mystery. Whether thousands of years old or made last week at a modern brass instrument factory, the fundamental changes to brasses over the millennia have been those of material, construction and ergonomics rather than actual tone production. As every school child that has ever picked up...

    Universities are now factories of conformism; only the brave and resilient will survive them In a few weeks, a new intake of students will arrive, all fresh-faced and excited, at universities around the country. They’ll be thrilled at the prospect of escaping the wagging finger of mum and dad, eager to absorb new ideas. But I’m afraid they are in for a rude awakening. Unless they’re very fortunate, they will soon find themselves enveloped in a world that’s more censorious than stimulating and taught not to question ideas but to learn by heart the progressive creed. It will take...

    Pol Pot would be proud of what is happening in America now. The murdering, former Cambodian communist revolutionary leader and head of the Khmer Rouge would be smiling at the leftist led, PC cultural revolution that is engulfing the nation like a three alarm fire. Yesterday, ESPN pulled an announcer off of the upcoming Virginia vs. William and Mary game, for the sole reason that the announcer’s name is Robert Lee. Wednesday night, ESPN President John Skipper sent a memo to employees stating the network was concerned that Lee’s presence in the booth for Virginia’s game against William & Mary...
