The plan is now for both to play on the same team overseas. "I don't care about the money," LaVar Ball said on Thursday morning. "I want them to go somewhere where they will play them together on the court at the same time. The priority is for the boys to play on the same team."
  • Comey On Twitter: Ex-FBI Chief Confirms 'Secret' Account

    10/24/2017 8:51:06 AM PDT · by Helicondelta · 4 replies
    After months of online speculation, former FBI Director James Comey has confirmed that a "secret" Twitter account does belong to him. The alias "Reinhold Niebuhr" account posted a series of mysterious images of Mr Comey on Monday. They were taken in Iowa, fuelling some light-hearted speculation that he could be considering a 2020 presidential bid. Mr Comey was fired by the US president in May, while investigating links between the Trump campaign and Russia. The Trump administration said he was "terminated and removed from office" over his handling over the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server....

    During a rally in Springfield, Mo., President Donald Trump called on Congress to reform the U.S. tax code, including the business tax, saying it puts American companies at a disadvantage compared to countries like China, the United Kingdom, and Canada, which have lower corporate tax rates. The United States is “dead last” when it comes to the business tax, the president said. We have gone from a tax rate that is lower than our economic competitors, to one that is more than 60 percent higher. We have totally surrendered our competitive edge to other countries. We have totally surrendered. We're...

    Former national security adviser and UN ambassador Susan Rice refuses to go quietly into retirement, even though she remains one of the most controversial figures of the Obama Administration. Now, thanks to a glowing profile in New York Magazine, we know that despite Susan Rice’s very public shortcomings (whatever happened to that dastardly filmmaker who spurred violence across the Middle East, anyway?), she believes any criticism of her tenure is at least partly the result of racism and sexism.

    After getting burned on a single-sourced story last week, CNN made some major internal changes to their reporting process. Three journalists involved in the retracted article resigned, and management imposed new restrictions on any reporting on Russian interference in the 2016 election. That’s not enough for Donald Trump, who took to Twitter this morning to complain about CNN’s performance on other stories: (tweet at link) Actually, the ratings are way up — and that might be part of the problem.

    Sanders and his wife have been trying to ignore the federal investigation since reporters for VTDigger, an online publication, confirmed the FBI’s involvement in April. The original request for an investigation into the potential bank fraud did indeed come from Brady Toensing, an attorney who chaired Trump’s Vermont campaign, and whose January 2016 letter to the U.S. attorney for Vermont put federal agents on the trail. (Toensing, in an email to Politico Magazine, notes, “The investigation was started more than a year ago under President Obama, his Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and his United States Attorney, all of whom are...

    Three American service members were killed and another wounded Saturday when an Afghan soldier opened fire on them in the country's eastern Nangarhar province, U.S. officials said. In a statement, the Pentagon said the wounded soldier had been evacuated for treatment and the incident was under investigation. The so-called insider attack — the second of its kind this year — happened in Nangarhar, where Afghan troops and U.S. special operations forces have been locked in combat with an Islamic State-affiliated militant group for months. The shooter was killed immediately.

    U.S.-led coalition troops patrolling in southern Syria were attacked Thursday by a pro-government forces drone, marking an escalation in hostilities in the region, the Pentagon said. Coalition troops, which included advisers, were conducting a patrol east of Tanf, near a military camp used by U.S. troops training Syrian rebels fighting the Islamic State. The drone, which was similar in shape and size to an MQ-1 Predator, dropped an unidentified munition on the troops, Army Col. Ryan Dillon told reporters Thursday at the Pentagon. “It had remaining munitions that were still on the drone when we fired and we shot it...

Kempsell reported on Twitter that the school had posters up in the windows apparently drawn by children, emblazoned with slogans like "We want change fund schools!" and "More books and libraries." Another message, seemingly writen by school staff, urged voters to "Vote with your heart, not by what the papers tell you!" Police were on-site, but the site manager apparently refused to take the posters down, threatening to close the entire polling...
