    The family of the driver said he was shaken up, but okay. Betty Aguilar, the driver's cousin, told FOX 4 there were signs around, but they had been blown away. She said there was just some wood over the hole. There was just like a little wood, but that wasn't going to stop anything from going through there," Aguilar said. "But that's the city's fault; they should have put something more secure." The driver's family said they had to use a ladder to get him out of the hole, and said they were upset that not enough was done to...

    “The cultural and economic and the spiritual loss to this city for having those statues up that have run people out of the city,” Landrieu claimed. “The great migration that sent some of our best and brightest to places across the country that we don’t have the benefit of has been incredible.”

    Last year I did an interview with two communist militants in a Chicago Mall Food Court entitled Coffee With Communists, WHO THEY ARE WHY THEY KILL The two were part of a little known Marxist street gang known as Anti-racist Action or Antifa. These disgusting animals wanted to kill Americans and bragged that they had killed Americans, namely veterans. Their message to America, revolution was coming and that those who opposed socialism and opposed their agenda would be violently killed. In the past week Antifa made headlines and is no longer under the radar. In Berkeley and in other cities,...

    President Donald Trump's border wall may not be going anywhere right now and one of Mexico's leading candidates in the presidential elections told NBC News she wants to make sure the "useless" wall stays that way. "It's a false solution to a false problem," Margarita Zavala said of the wall through a translator in a phone interview Wednesday. "The wall does not help in any way the relationship between the two countries. The wall is pulling us apart." Zavala, a former member of Congress and ex-first lady (she is married to Felipe Calderon, a former president), is expected to be...

  • White House claims on Syria chemical attack ‘obviously false’ – MIT professor

    RT America ^ | April 12,2017 | RT America
    A professor who challenged the 2013 claims of a chemical attack in Syria is now questioning the Trump administration’s narrative blaming the Assad government for the April 4 attack in the Idlib province town of Khan Shaykhun. On Tuesday, the White House released a declassified intelligence brief accusing Syrian President Bashar Assad of ordering and organizing the attack, in which Syrian planes allegedly dropped chemical ordnance on civilians in the rebel-held town. The report “contains absolutely no evidence that this attack was the result of a munition being dropped from an aircraft,” wrote Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Professor Theodore...

    A driver who used wooden logs and chicken wire to reinforce his vehicle’s suspension was ticketed and had his car impounded by police following a traffic stop in west Quebec. The MRC des Collines police said they pulled the 1999 Toyota Tercel over on Sunday at about 10:45 p.m. on route du Carrefour in Val-des-Monts after noticing the car didn’t have working brake lights. After pulling the car over, they discovered that the 28-year-old driver had no proof of insurance and an open beer in the front seat, police said. A closer inspection of the car also revealed that three...

    NYT ^ | APRIL 1, 2017 | EMILY STEEL and MICHAEL S. SCHMIDT
    An investigation by The New York Times has found a total of five women who have received payouts from either Mr. O’Reilly or the company in exchange for agreeing to not pursue litigation or speak about their accusations against him. The agreements totaled about $13 million. Two settlements came after the network’s former chairman, Roger Ailes, was dismissed last summer in the wake of a sexual harassment scandal, when the company said it did not tolerate behavior that “disrespects women or contributes to an uncomfortable work environment.”

    Judge Andrew Napolitano may be temporarily sidelined at Fox News, but he’s been telling friends and associates that he could be in for a big promotion — to the Supreme Court. After meeting with President Trump twice during the transition, first in December and again in mid-January, the Newark, N.J.-born television personality told several people that Trump said he was on the list of judges from whom he was selecting a nominee for the high court. “He said, ‘Trump said I’m on the list,’” said a source who spoke with Napolitano shortly after one of his meetings with the then...

    A federal district judge in Hawaii has just issued a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) blocking the key provisions of the President’s revised Executive order that pauses the refugee program and admittance of foreign nationals from 6 terrorist hotbeds (Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen) until thorough vetting can be put in place. The court disturbingly ruled that these two provisions – pausing refugees and foreign national entry from 6 nations – target Muslims and violate the Establishment Clause. The court created a constitutional crisis where none existed. The court’s Establishment Clause analysis is fundamentally flawed and ignores the separation...

    Secretary of Defense James Mattis has asserted that climate change is real, and a threat to American interests abroad and the Pentagon’s assets everywhere, a position that appears at odds with the views of the president who appointed him and many in the administration in which he serves. In unpublished written testimony provided to the Senate Armed Services Committee after his confirmation hearing in January, Mattis said it was incumbent on the U.S. military to consider how changes like open-water routes in the thawing Arctic and drought in global trouble spots can pose challenges for troops and defense planners. He...

    Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) got handcuffed in an Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Chicago today after arriving with a list of demands and staging a sit-in. One of the things the congressman was protesting was a series of tweets issued by ICE last week warning that those covered under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program weren't necessarily safe from removal. "DACA is not a protected legal status, but active DACA recipients are typically a lower level of enforcement priority," ICE tweeted. "Deferred action may be revoked anytime especially when someone commits a crime or poses a national security...

    Former President George W. Bush is criticizing President Donald Trump's first month in office, though he remains optimistic about the future. "I don't like the racism and I don't like the name-calling and I don't like the people feeling alienated," Bush told People magazine. "Nobody likes that." . . . "I didn't feel like speaking out before because I didn't want to complicate the job and I'm not going to this time. However, at the Bush Center we are speaking up." The Bush Center programs include immigration ceremonies, AIDS prevention programs in Africa and leadership training for Muslim women.

    Former President George W. Bush said Monday “we all need answers” on the extent of contact between President Donald Trump’s team and the Russian government, and didn’t rule out the idea that a special prosecutor could be necessary to lead an investigation. The Republican also defended the media’s role in keeping world leaders in check, noting that “power can be addictive,” and warned against immigration policies that could alienate Muslims. “I am for an immigration policy that’s welcoming and upholds the law,” Bush told NBC’s “Today” show. Bush’s comments came after a prominent Republican in Congress, Rep. Darrell Issa of...
