    NEW YORK (AP) - Tennis icon Billie Jean King is not mincing words about the many white women who voted for Donald Trump, saying they "really don't like themselves." King, who led the fight for equal pay for women in tennis, also says she feels there is more misogyny now than when she defeated Bobby Riggs in the famous "Battle of the Sexes" match in 1973, the subject of the new movie starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell. "I think there's a lot of misogyny - I think it's higher now than it was," King said in an interview Tuesday...

    The House GOP's staunchest opponent of illegal immigration said President Trump is now at risk of losing his base of supporters after supposedly cutting a deal to legalize more than 800,000 young people who arrived in the United States illegally as children. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said he stands by a Wednesday night tweet that proclaimed Trump's base "is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond repair," after he dined with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. The two Democrats left the White House proclaiming they had reached a deal with Trump on...

    Horror novelist Stephen King took to Twitter Friday to call for President Donald Trump to be “removed” from office. “Donald Trump is unfit for office. Needs to be removed,” the author wrote. The social media missive was just the latest attack King has lodged at President Trump in recent months. Last month, the 69-year-old Dark Tower author called Trump “fake” in a Twitter post that went viral online. “The news is real. The president is fake.” he wrote. King, however, wasn’t the only celebrity to call for Trump’s removal from office Friday. Comedian Chelsea Handler urged the president’s generals to...
  • Boston Globe Op-Ed Upends Rosa Parks Legacy

    07/30/2017 5:17:50 PM PDT · by Olog-hai · 4 replies
    Shortly before a recent Massachusetts state committee hearing to discuss a proposed “Anti-Discrimination Bill,” the Boston Globe ran an opinion piece criticizing the bill. The Op-Ed, by Columbia University professor Katherine Franke, argued that measures to discourage anti-Israel boycotts “betray” the legacy of civil rights icon Rosa Parks. In fact, Parks was an outspoken and very public opponent of discriminatory anti-Israel boycotts. […] … Along with Coretta Scott King, Bayard Rustin and other civil rights luminaries, Parks was a co-signer of a 1975 letter that described as “repugnant” the Arab world’s boycott targeting Israel, a precursor to today’s BDS movement....

    The film adaption of Stephen King’s classic horror is only two months away and San Diego Comic-Con have been treated to some more terrifying footage. Director Andres Muschietti introduced a couple of clips that apparently left the audience unsettled and terrified, just like the last trailer. The filmmaker also revealed to Variety that IT Part 2 of the story will start shooting early next year and is set 30 years later with flashbacks. Entertainment Weekly have provided a description of the horrors Pennywise the Dancing Clown inflicted in what was screened at Comic Con.

    Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Rep. Steve King (R-IA) was asked by show co-host Alisyn Camerota if he was “comfortable” holding up funding for the federal government if it did not include money for the border wall. King said that he was, but suggested taking it a step further by adding money earmarked for food stamps and Planned Parenthood to fund the wall. Partial transcript as follows: CAMEROTA: And it’s $1.6 billion. I mean, that’s what might be holding up, you know, the funding for the government. But are you comfortable, Congressman, with providing $1.6 billion of taxpayer money, not...

  • Peter King: Leaks Against Flynn a ‘Criminal Action’

    King said, “You go back to the question of the leaks, that is a criminal action. I mean to have a wiretap of anyone, a foreign national, and to have an American come on that, an American citizen come on that tape, there is all sorts of precautions in the law, how that person’s identity has to be masked, how it can’t be made public. Yet, it was not only made public; it was leaked to a newspaper. So you have the national security advisor being taped. That could have been a legal wiretap aimed at the Russians. Yet, to...

    CNN host John King tore into the Donald Trump White House Monday — and policy aide Stephen Miller in particular — for continuing to push claims of widespread voter fraud despite no evidence. King cued up video of Miller’s contentious interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos Sunday, during which he claimed that millions of illegal voters were bused into New Hampshire on Election Day 2016. “Ask Democrats, ask Republicans, ask anybody in New Hampshire. They will tell you that is ludicrous,” King said. “He is on the payroll now — you pay him,” he told his panel. “He’s a taxpayer-paid employee standing in the White House briefing...

    Washington Post ^ | Wesley Lowery
    Coretta Scott King, the widow of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., urged Congress in a letter to block the 1986 nomination of Jeff Sessions for federal judge, saying that allowing him to join the federal bench would “irreparably damage the work of my husband.” The letter, previously unavailable publicly, was obtained on Tuesday by The Washington Post. (Read the full letter below) “Anyone who has used the power of his office as United States Attorney to intimidate and chill the free exercise of the ballot by citizens should not be elevated to our courts,” King wrote in the...

    The latest example of “fake news” is the wild misrepresentation of a message from the Republican National Committee that caused a Christmas day frenzy as the establishment media and bitter online leftists pushed the theory that a reference to a “new King” in a paragraph talking about Jesus was an allusion to Donald Trump. {..snip..}

    It is remarkable how disingenuous, and hypocritical, partisan democrats (and media) become with the issue of manipulation and intents of CIA Chief John Brennan… Everyone reading here is old enough to remember Democrat Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Diane Feinstein, accusing Brennan of lying to her and congress; and worse yet, accusing Brennan of illegally hacking into, and spying on, her staff and congressional oversight personnel. Now, however, all of a sudden, John Brennan is the bastion of intelligence integrity…. Ridiculous.

    King called Trump “an American to save the nation” at a campaign event at New Spirit Revival Center, a largely black church in King’s hometown of Cleveland. “He’s fearless, he’s courageous and brave and bold enough to take on the system,” King said. “All things are possible with God.” ... Trump’s running mate, Indiana Governor Mike Pence, introduced King. “The party doesn’t want him, the system doesn’t want him, the lying politicians don’t want him,” King said of Trump. “We need Donald Trump, especially black people,” said King, who is African-American. The boxing hall of famer was expected to join...
