    NBC Bay Area ^ | Riya Bhattacharjee
    Things got a little heated Monday when a group of young immigrants confronted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at a pro-DACA press conference in San Francisco. Several dozen young immigrants shouted down the top House Democrat, following her recent conversations with President Donald Trump over the future of a program that grants many of them legal status. "We are immigrant youth, undocumented and unafraid," they chanted, taking over a scheduled press conference Pelosi, along with Reps. Barbara Lee and Jared Huffman, organized to call for the immediate passage of the Dream Act, a federal proposal that offered many of the...

    Former Vice President Al Gore has been hit by new allegations of sexual assault. This time, it's two more massage therapists bringing the charges. *** The new allegations are said to have taken place at two hotels - one in Beverly Hills in 2007, when Gore was in Hollywood for the Oscars, the other in Tokyo in 2008. *** Molly Hagerty, the Portland victim, has also recently piped up with some new evidence: a pair of stained black pants and the remains of some candy supposedly gobbled by Gore.

    The Venezuelan leader was often marginalized as a radical. But his brand of socialism achieved real economic gains For the last decade in American politics, Hugo Chavez became a potent political weapon - within a few years of his ascent, he was transformed from just a leader of a neighboring nation into a boogeyman synonymous with extremism. Regularly invoked in over-the-top political rhetoric, Chavez's name became a decontextualized epithet to try to attach to a political opponent so as to make that opponent look like a radical. Because of this, America barely flinched upon hearing the news that the Bush...

    e National Football League is prime territory for companies looking to sell their products, after all who wouldn't want to be associated with the most popular sport in America? Now those companies are sending a message to the NFL that a certain standard is expected by those who are footing the bill. The actions of a few players are giving the NFL a black eye in front of the companies that contribute heavily to the profitability of the league and its 32 member franchises. Advertisers are hearing feedback from American consumers that the off the field conduct of some players...

    NATIONAL POST ^ | 11/27/11 | RANDY BOSWELL
    In a relatively rare admission for an American scholar, a leading U.S. historian who authored a provocative new tome about North American military conflicts states bluntly that Canada won the War of 1812. Johns Hopkins University professor Eliot Cohen, a senior adviser to former U.S. secretary of state Condoleezza Rice, writes in his just-published book Conquered Into Liberty that, “ultimately, Canada and Canadians won the War of 1812.” And Cohen acknowledges that, “Americans at the time, and, by and large, since, did not see matters that way.”

    OAKLAND — In exit interviews on Wednesday afternoon, available Warriors reiterated that the team hasn’t had an official discussion about whether or not they will go to the White House, if invited, as is custom for championship-winning sports teams. But perhaps the face of the franchise, Stephen Curry, made it pretty clear that he doesn’t have an interest in visiting Donald Trump. “Somebody asked me about it a couple months ago, a hypothetical, if a championship were to happen: ‘What would I do?'” Curry said. “I think I answered that I wouldn’t go. I still feel like that today.”

    Colin Kaepernick, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback who started a national conversation by kneeling during the national anthem to highlight racial injustices in America, was widely criticized after he revealed he didn’t vote on Election Day. But as it turns out the 29-year-old, credited by some as the face of the Black Lives Matter movement, has never been registered to vote in any election, according to a report by The Sacramento Bee. Mr. Kaepernick, who turned 18 in 2005, never registered to vote in his home state of California or Nevada, where he attended the University of Nevada, Reno, from...

    Columbia University’s “Knight Institute” is suing the Trump administration on behalf of seven individuals alleging the president “blocked” them from reading his Twitter feed. The lawsuit, filed with the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleges that due to Mr. Trump’s usage of his personal Twitter account to engage with the public, his @realdonaldtrump Twitter account is a “public forum,” blocking citizens of access is “unconstitutional,” and his personal Twitter account should be treated as a public forum under federal law.

    Rule of law is imploding in Denmark as “low-tech jihad” and migrant gangs take over the streets. The Danish government should not be surprised. But it appears to be. Thousands of incidents involving loosened wheel bolts on cars, large rocks or cinder blocks thrown from highway overpasses, and thin steel wires strung across bicycle paths meant to decapitate unsuspecting cyclists, is spreading a growing sense of horror among the Danes. In almost all cases, the perpetrators have turned out to be from MENAP countries (Middle East, North Africa, Pakistan).

    Oregon-based Lattice Semiconductor Corp hoped to sell itself to a Chinese-backed private equity fund called Canyon Bridge. That deal, it turns out, was never to be. After CFIUS (the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S.) gave a thumbs-down over security concerns, earlier this month, Lattice took its case to Donald Trump, arguing that the deal would create American jobs. They thought Trump would fall for it, but he upheld CFIUS’s recommendation. In blocking this deal, he sent a clear signal to Beijing that Washington will oppose takeover deals that involve technologies with military implications. Trump is basically protecting the...

    The University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign’s Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) chapter has gone radical on Facebook calling for “violent resistance, whether black bloc or full-scale armed conflict” in its fight against fascism, White Supremacy and Zionism. SJP’s latest event: “Smashing Fascism: Radical Resistance Against White Supremacy,” claimed “there is no room for fascists, white supremacists, or Zionists” at the Illinois university. Although SJP has its roots in anti-Zionism, since Trump entered the political realm they’ve broadened their target to include fascism and white supremacy.

    I wish I wasn’t the one to bring this tragedy to these vaulted pages amidst the litany of bad news we’ve huddled together against. I’m only the messenger of this giant’s downfall, who no doubt touched us all. Rapper Shawty Lo has died in a car accident in Atlanta. The 40-year-old rapper, born Carlos Walker, was ejected from his vehicle after he crashed into two trees on his way home from an Atlanta strip club. Walker leaves behind 11 children from 10 different mothers. He made headlines in 2013 when the television network Oxygen announced a special about the rapper...
  • Obama reveals in 1995 "Uncle Frank"s full name to be FMD. ZERO mention in his book 'Dreams'

    Below is something I copied & pasted from the Comments section beneath the (YouTube) video. It's from the excellent communist investigator/researcher Trevor Loudon of New Zealand.=============================================================== Obama repeatedly describes Davis’ tremendous influence on him in his book “Dreams from My Father.” Davis is mentioned 22 times in “Dreams,” at least once in every section of the book. Despite his pivotal importance, Obama never once identifies Davis by his full name.All references to “Frank” have been purged from “Dreams” audio excerpts. From the 1920s, American communists attempted to recruit black Americans. From the 1920s, the Soviet Union was sending money to...

    Freedom of speech in America is on the line, as Judge James A. Hinkle had to resign due to his criticism of protesters concerned about Confederate monuments in Charlottesville. He made a simple post on Facebook, and he did not threaten anyone, as we are seeing so many from the Left doing. In my opinion, this proves our free speech is endangered. Judge James A. Hinkle offered his immediate resignation from his position as a part-time magistrate with the Gwinnett County Magistrate Court. Hinkle’s Facebook post Saturday called protesters of Confederate monuments “snowflakes who have no concept of history.” He...

    Given that 2016 was the worst year for homicides in nearly two decades in Chicago, it comes as little surprise that the city has a reputation as one of the most violent places in the United States. Last year, there were 762 murders, 3,550 shooting incidents and 4,331 shooting victims with an average of 12 people shot every single day. In fact, the Windy City experienced more murders than New York and Los Angeles combined last year with the number of homicides there since 2001 eclipsing U.S. war dead in Iraq and Afghanistan by late November. Even though it had...

    One of the biggest NASCAR sponsors lobbied to have the event moved. Camping World Chairman and CEO Marcus Lemonis wrote in a letter dated for Tuesday that neither he nor anyone from Camping World would participate in an event at any Trump property "due to recent and ongoing blatantly bigoted and racist comments from Donald Trump in regards to immigrants of the United States." Trump has made several comments about immigrants while on the campaign trail. "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best," Trump said when announcing his candidacy for the Republican nomination last month. "They're sending...

    CNN used the voices of a few professors and activists to assert anyone who voted for President Donald Trump is a white supremacist in a news report Wednesday, and to blame these “ordinary” people for the violence in Charlottesville. Trump voters helped advance white supremacy by giving them room to operate, CNN reported based on the assertions of others in a piece headlined, “‘White Supremacists by default’: How ordinary people made Charlottesville possible.” “It’s easy to focus on the angry white men in paramilitary gear who looked like they were mobilizing for a race war in the Virginia college town,”...
