    Centuries of struggles and strife, decades of planning and pain, and years of hoping for a place that African American history can call home will culminate as President Obama officially opens the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. Obama tweeted from his presidential Twitter account Saturday morning that he was "Proud to help open @NMAAHC with so many heroes. African American history is a central part of our glorious American history." Before formally opening the museum, Obama will ring the Freedom Bell, acquired in 1886 by the historic First Baptist Church in Williamsburg, Va., believed to be...

  • What Hillary Clinton’s pneumonia diagnosis means, medically-speaking

    “At this point, there is no reason to believe that Secretary Clinton will be disabled” by pneumonia, American Lung Association scientific adviser Norman H. Edelman told The Washington Post by phone Sunday night. The CDC estimates that 2 million people a year fall sick with such milder forms of pneumonia. “Developing walking pneumonia does not mean you have poor health,” Stanford University pulmonologist Mark Nicolls said in an interview with The Washington Post. “Young and healthy people develop walking pneumonia.” It is possible there are even more cases than that CDC estimate, too, as walking pneumonia is hard to diagnose....

  • Glenn Beck’s Dying Empire Gives Up on the Hollywood Dream

    Glenn Beck’s financially troubled multimedia empire took another hit over Labor Day Weekend as Beck announced that Mercury Radio Arts, his privately held umbrella company, has abruptly stopped producing scripted film and television projects under his once-cherished subsidiary American Dream Labs. In a statement posted on his website, Beck characterized the apparent shutdown as a “divorce” because American Dream Labs “needs to exist separate and apart from Mercury in order to spread its wings.” The demise of the Beck subsidiary is the latest troubling development for a once-flourishing enterprise that in the past year has terminated nearly half its estimated...

  • Why no name for train attacker?

    08/25/2016 12:24:06 PM PDT · by MNDude · 13 replies
    The name of the person believed responsible for a deadly attack on train passengers in northeastern Switzerland has not been released. Here are the reasons why. So far, Swiss police have provided the age, gender and nationality of the attacker – a 27-year-old Swiss male. No further information has been released to the media. This is common practice in Swiss law enforcement, designed to protect the privacy of an individual and the person’s family. Is nationality relevant? Another sensitive question related to crime reporting involves the suspect’s nationality and ethnicity. In canton St Gallen, where Saturday’s train attack took place,...

Now, I know Google was involved in Obama's campaign. I know that Time-Warner (which owns CNN) is Clinton's 6th largest donor. But, this selective editing, these sins of omission when there are so many conservative papers with better...
  • 'All Pies Matter': Glenn Beck Supports #BLM, Gets Shouted Down

    The metaphor, Beck said, was intended to draw attention to white Americans' neglect to understand the very real issues, like police brutality, facing black Americans on a daily basis. He repeated the "All Lives Matter" mantra in an NPR interview the following day, where he further urged all Americans "to start listening to each other and getting out of our own little labeled bubbles." Beck's "labeled bubbles" theory may be ground in reality. A Pew Research Center survey released Monday finds "significant differences" in the way black and white adults use social media to share and interact with race-related content....

But Manafort insisted that the two are "very good friends." "Of course he's trying to bridge the party with Paul Ryan," Manafort told George Stephanopoulos on "Good Morning America." "But Paul Ryan is running against someone who's not going to win but is a strong supporter of Mr. Trump."

Bergdahl, 30, is facing a court-martial with a potential life sentence on charges of desertion and endangerment of U.S. troops after he walked away from his post in Afghanistan in 2009 and became a Taliban prisoner for five years. Defense attorneys argued in a motion filed on Monday that comments made by McCain and the committee's general counsel, Steve Barney, have...

  • USA Today: Obama Tops All Presidents Ordering Flags to Half-Staff

    06/16/2016 7:17:18 AM PDT · by MNDude · 28 replies
    President Barack Obama owns the dubious presidential record for ordering flags lowered to half-staff, having issued the directive 66 times during his tenure, USA Today reports. The country is in the middle of No. 66 to honor the 49 people killed in Sunday's massacre in Orlando. George W. Bush is second with 58 such orders and Bill Clinton third at 50, USAT reports. Fourteen times Obama has ordered the flag lowered at federal buildings and ships at sea due to mass shootings. Honoring the victims from each of those events has accounted for 79 days with flags at half-staff.

  • Obama: Orlando shooting was a case of ‘homegrown extremism,’ gunman inspired by online propaganda

    ORLANDO — President Obama said the gunman who opened fire in a nightclub here on Sunday appeared to be motivated by extremist propaganda online, saying that authorities have not found any links connecting this attacker with other radical groups.

Dever III, calling his action “in the public interest,” issued a preliminary injunction Saturday against NC State’s speech permit policy, saying it violates the students’ First Amendment right to freedom of speech. “The judge pretty much granted the entire request that we asked for,” a lawyer for the students, Tyson Langhofer, told The Daily Signal. “Essentially, everything in the final order that we requested was granted.”
