  • Rape in the storage room, Why is the restaurant industry so terrible for women?

    Washington post ^ | 17/11/2017 | Maura Judkis
    If you’re a woman, what makes a restaurant dangerous isn’t the sharp knives or the hot griddle: It’s an isolated area of the kitchen, like the dry storage pantry. That’s where Miranda Rosenfelt, 31, then a cook at Jackie’s restaurant in Silver Spring, was headed one day seven years ago to help out with inventory, at the request of one of her direct supervisors, who she says had been harassing her for months. When she walked into the narrow basement room, far from the bustle of the kitchen, she turned around to find him “standing there with his pants on...

    Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton refused to speculate about what the Senate should do if Roy Moore wins his Senate race in Alabama after being accused of sexually harassing and assaulting multiple women. Cotton, a Republican, said it’s up to the people of Alabama to decide if that’s the kind of man they want representing them in the Senate. “As far as Roy Moore goes, I'm not going to speculate about what may happen should he win. We're three weeks out from the election, he made it pretty clear this week that he's not going to step aside … it’s up...

  • Actor James Woods takes aim at Mall of America with video some are calling racist

    11/16/2017 9:49:24 AM PST · by MNDude · 42 replies
    Actor James Woods took aim at the Mall of America on Monday by posting a 45-second video showing hundreds of Muslims gathering at Nickelodeon Universe, the seven-acre indoor amusement park in the center of Bloomington mall. The conservative actor says “I would suggest getting your Christmas shopping done early. Oh, wait ...” Woods, a prolific user of Twitter with more than 1 million followers, frequently tweets on conservative causes. His Mall of America tweet had more than 12,000 likes and about 9,000 retweets Tuesday. Many of the nearly 5,000 commenters supported Woods, but it also has generated backlash. Although it...

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller, in what started as a probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 elections and any potential collusion with the Trump campaign, is reportedly investigating former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn for an alleged plan to “forcibly remove” a Muslim cleric living in exile in Pennsylvania and send him back to Turkey.
  • Bill Clinton compares Trump's fake news rhetoric to ‘dictators club’ tactics

    The Hill ^ | November 8, 2017 | Brett Samuels
    Former President Bill Clinton on Wednesday expressed concern that President Trump's rhetoric reflects the same values as dictators around the world. Clinton said on the late night show "Conan", that the world’s dictators all want to blur the line between fact and fiction. "They figure if you don’t know what’s true and you don’t think you can ever know that, pretty soon everybody will accept the fact that democracy is no longer possible," Clinton told host Conan O'Brien. “Are you talking about foreign countries now or here?” O’Brien asked. “That chilled me to the bone for a second.” Clinton hesitated....

    More voters than not find the Big Three network newscasts and the nation’s three largest liberal newspapers "untrustworthy," continuing a trend that started long before President Trump hit the scene, but one that has escalated since he moved into the White House. The latest Zogby Poll found that 48 percent believe the media biggies - CBS, ABC, NBC, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post - are untrustworthy while 45 percent said they could trust them. The rest were unsure. [Snip] Trump voters are the most distrusting of the top six news outlets, but there are many other differences,...

    New York Daily News ^ | Ginger Adams Otis
    The billionaire owner of hyperlocal news sites DNAinfo and Gothamist shut them down Thursday — just a week after staffers voted to join a union. Joe Ricketts, a supporter of President Trump who made billions as the founder of TD Ameritrade, yanked the sites at 5 p.m. and sent an email to employees to let them know they lost their jobs. “I’ve made the difficult decision to begin the orderly wind down of the DNAinfo/Gothamist business,” Ricketts wrote. “Reaching this decision wasn’t easy, and it wasn’t one I made lightly,” he said in the email, most of which was also...

    Notice how the New York Times and Washington Post are staying away from the CNN story about the upcoming Robert Mueller indictments. There’s a good reason for that… ….Things That Make Other Things Make Sense: Back on January 10th, 2017, when CNN first began emphasizing the Russian Dossier and how it related to the ‘vast Russian conspiracy’ CTH knew from the way it was being pitched that something was sketchy about CNN’s reporting. It wasn’t just the story they were selling; it was a very specific cast of characters selling it. We immediately NOTED IT HERE. Jake Tapper, Jim Sciutto,...
  • Hillary Clinton 'Sex Tape' Was Made By Russian Trolls

    A Russian man who said he once worked as an internet troll claimed the nation’s propaganda factory produced a sex tape featuring a Hillary Clinton look-alike and an African-American man, among other accusations. During an interview with an independent Russian TV channel, the former troll, Alan Baskaev, said he worked at Russia's now infamous Internet Research Agency (IRA), which used social media to whip up discord and deepen political divides in the United States. The aim allegedly was to help Donald Trump defeat Clinton in last year’s election.

From her own 2016 press release:Washington, D.C.– In a long-awaited victory, the U.S. House of Representatives today by a voice vote passed H.R. 3833/S. 1632, legislation introduced by Congresswoman Frederica S.

    Now that the media are obsessively focusing on Facebook ads that were supposedly spread by the Russians to boost Donald Trump's campaign, the billionaire president himself has decided to fight back. On Twitter, Trump argued that the stories about how Facebook supposedly helped him are greatly exaggerated. In fact, he tweeted , Facebook was on Hillary Clinton's side. QUOTE Trump also argued that, although some people (Russians?) may have bought Facebook ads that aimed at helping him and/or tearing down Hillary, the amounts involved were "tiny." He added: QUOTE We are not supposed to talk about the positive free media...

    "But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it" Reading the “news” over the ‘Net these days is enough to want to pull one’s hair out. But it is the mainstream media reports of how Western leaders are turning on their own people, not the Fake News that most rational folk can spot at a glance that is really the most worrisome. Easy to dismiss theories from activist talking heads like Sally Kohn over at CNN, who said Harvey Weinstein’s fall “grew from rage over Trump”. (CNN), or that cowgirl hat-wearing “yippie yippie ki...
