    What does the State Department’s Wendy Sherman do with her spare time when not negotiating weak nuclear deals with rogue regimes? The same as the rest of the Obama foreign-policy team: threaten Israel with diplomatic isolation at the United Nations. Sherman issued some thinly veiled threats yesterday in remarks to a gathering of Reform movement leaders in which she made clear that the administration expects the next Israeli government to do its bidding with respect to supporting a two-state solution with the Palestinians. While there’s nothing new about this insistence, Sherman’s language followed the same pattern as other remarks issued...
  • Trump's Anti-GOP Complaints Are Big News, While Threats to Anti-Trump GOPers Are Ignored

    News Busters ^ | April 15, 2016 | Rich Noyes
    On April 13, ABC’s World News Tonight correspondent Tom Llamas devoted most of that night’s report to chilling death threats against the Colorado state Republican party chairman, angered at how Donald Trump failed to win any delegates at the weekend party convention. Besides that one report, and two minor mentions (one on ABC’s Good Morning America and on Thursday’s CBS Evening News), that’s all the broadcast news attention given to reports of actual death threats in this increasingly nasty presidential race: 110 seconds in total, not a moment of which was on NBC. But since the Colorado convention through Thursday...

    Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly said in an interview broadcast Sunday that there have been threats against her life since her hard-lined questioning of GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump. "It's how he gins up anger among so many. So it manifests in my life in several ways," Kelly said during an interview with Charlie Rose on "CBS Sunday Morning." "It's not that I'm worried someone's actually going to come shoot me down. But I do worry someone's going to try to hurt me in the presence of my children." During the first GOP debate in August, Kelly grilled Trump on...
  • Pepsi chief executive joins criticism of North Carolina law on LGBT rights

    The chief executive of Pepsi, a company with roots in North Carolina, has written to Governor Pat McCrory to ask him to repeal a new law preventing specific anti-discrimination rules for LGBT people over public accommodations and restroom use. In a letter hand delivered to McCrory on Friday, PepsiCo head Indra Nooyi called the law inconsistent with how her company treats its employees. Nooyi also said the law was undermining efforts to advance North Carolina’s interests, and she said she hoped McCrory would consider repealing the law when the state legislature reconvenes later this month.

    Donald Trump's older sister, federal appeals court judge Maryanne Trump Barry, received a threatening letter in Philadelphia on Friday — one day after the GOP front-runner's son received a suspicious piece of mail containing white powder, sources told NBC News.

Eric Trump's letter, received Thursday, demanded that his real estate mogul father drop out of the Republican race for the presidential nomination.

    The University of Missouri's Board of Curators has rejected an appeal filed by Melissa Click, the former assistant professor fired last month after she'd gained notoriety last fall for her role in protests on Mizzou's campus. The board's unanimous decision to reject Click's appeal means her termination has been upheld and she has no further recourse through the university to get her job back. Click had been on paid suspension pending her appeal since the board fired her in February. In announcing the board's action Tuesday morning, board chairwoman Pamela Henrickson said Click has been treated fairly throughout the process.

The notes threatened "mass death" and demanded $60,000 cash, along with criticisms of President George Bush, Linn said.

If they do, then Danish warships will be targets for Russian nuclear missiles,” said Mikhail Vanin, the Russian ambassador to Denmark, to the Jyllands-Posten newspaper.
