The liberal media has been targeting the Trump family ever since Donald Trump announced his intention to run for president. They will do anything to smear and abuse the Trump family. (Photo) On Wednesday ProPublica posted an anti-Trump report with this headline: “Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. Were Close to Being Charged With Felony Fraud” -That makes it ALMOST a news story. This liberal media is unhinged and unethical. Pathetic -AOL.com reported: According to a new report from ProPublica, the Major Economic Crimes Bureau of Manhattan’s D.A.’s office opened an investigation into President Trump’s children in 2010. The two Trumps were put
A Vermont newspaper called the Bennington Banner is facing outrage after running a cartoon of dead bodies in hopes of gun control conversation. The paper ran the cartoon on Tuesday—two days after the heinous attack on Las Vegas concert goers—and faced such backlash that it apologized the same day. The Daily Mail reports that calls for Cartoonist Randall Enos and Editor Kevin Moran to resign were complimented by calls for an all-out boycott of the paper. The cartoon shows a stack of bodies with the caption, “Whatever Happens in Vegas…” In apologizing for running the cartoon, Moran suggested it was
The CBS legal executive who was fired for posting on Facebook that she had no sympathy for Las Vegas shooting victims because they were “country music fans” told the NYPD she’s being harassed online, officers said Wednesday. Hayley Geftman-Gold posted Monday about the massacre a day earlier. “If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Republicans will ever do the right thing,” she wrote. “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters.” She told cops that the post went viral shortly after she wrote the words. She then
HUNCHUN, China — The workers wake up each morning on metal bunk beds in fluorescent-lit Chinese dormitories, North Koreans outsourced by their government to process seafood that ends up in American stores and homes. Privacy is forbidden. They cannot leave their compounds without permission. They must take the few steps to the factories in pairs or groups, with North Korean minders ensuring no one strays. They have no access to telephones or email. And they are paid a fraction of their salaries, while the rest — as much as 70 percent — is taken by North Korea’s government. This means Americans
A sculpture of an American Indian man sitting beneath a Spanish missionary and a vaquero might be chopped from the Pioneer Monument in San Francisco’s Civic Center, after the city’s Arts Commission voted unanimously to review the statue and consider removing it. Opponents of “Early Days” — which juts out of the eastern side of the 800-ton Pioneer Monument between the Main Library and the Asian Art Museum — packed a meeting of the Arts Commission on Monday to criticize the statue, calling it San Francisco’s version of a Confederate memorial. (Snip) Although the majority of people who spoke Monday pressed
Harvey Milk Plaza, a dated transit hub and gathering place at the intersection of Market and Castro streets, will soon be lit in white neon and an array of rainbow colors shooting into the sky to honor the slain San Francisco supervisor. The two light sculptures by the nonprofit Illuminate will be unveiled Nov. 8 at a free public ceremony to honor the 40th anniversary of Milk’s election to the Board of Supervisors, which made him the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California. (Snip) The neon sign will be permanent and read “Hope Will Never
WASHINGTON — Government witnesses in the trial of Ahmed Abu Khattala testified Tuesday in graphic detail about the bloody attacks on U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya, while defense attorneys worked to raise doubt that the defendant masterminded the 2012 strikes that killed four Americans. The trial entered its second day with U.S. government prosecutors questioning diplomatic security agent Scott Wickland, who tried unsuccessfully to save ambassador Chris Stevens and Sean Patrick Smith, a State Department information management officer, from a burning U.S. diplomatic outpost. Nearly eight hours later, two more Americans — contract security officers Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty —
The U.S. House Committee on Natural Resources said it will work to identify red tape and other bureaucratic hurdles to speed up Puerto Rico’s recovery and rebuilding, as the island struggles to recover from the impact of Hurricane Maria. Committee Chairman Rob Bishop said in a press call on Wednesday that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other federal partners will also likely be engaged for years in helping Puerto Rico get back on its feet. Bishop added that an emergency response will be executed through FEMA and local officials. “An emergency funding package is taking place as we speak to support
PHOENIX- President Donald Trump´s pardon of former Sheriff Joe Arpaio´s conviction for disobeying a court order in an immigration case will stand after a judge on Wednesday rejected arguments that it would encourage government officials to flout similar judicial commands in the future. U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton cited U.S. Supreme Court precedent in formally dismissing the criminal case against the former six-term sheriff of metro Phoenix known for his harsh treatment of inmates and immigration enforcement crackdowns. She held off on ruling on Arpaio´s request to throw out all orders in the case, including a blistering 14-page ruling in
Pat Sajak, the host of Wheel of Fortune and a very funny man, issued a tweet in the wake of the plethora of uninformed opinions offered by self-important celebrities (Need we mention Jimmy Kimmel?) in response to the Las Vegas massacre: (Tweet) This is not the first time Sajak, a political conservative, has lanced the celebrity bubble of leftism that pervades Hollywood; his resume should have been a warning to leftists that his wit would target them. Sajak is an external director for the conservative publishing house Eagle Publishing, serves on the Board of Trustees at Hillsdale College and has
In the wake of the horrific tragedy in Las Vegas, celebrities have decided to use death as a stump for their activism. And of course, who better to lead the way than professional protester Michael Moore. Moore is not backing down on Trump. He told anchor Amy Goodman on Democracy Now!, “We have got to get rid of Trump.” Even in the case of war with North Korea, Moore wanted only to “get rid of” Trump. He said, “We are in the French Resistance.” So America is now occupied by Nazis? He continued, “Don’t even stop to think. If Trump
WASHINGTON - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will propose repealing the Clean Power Plan - the Obama administration’s centerpiece regulation to fight climate change - and plans to solicit input on a rule to replace it, according to an EPA document seen by Reuters. The decision marks the agency’s first formal step to sweep away the rule intended to cut carbon emissions from power plants, after President Donald Trump signed an executive order in March launching the EPA’s review. The Republican president has expressed doubts about the science of climate change and has blamed former Democratic President Barack Obama’s efforts to cut
BRUSSELS - Amazon was told on Wednesday to pay about 250 million euros ($295 million) in back taxes to Luxembourg, the latest U.S. tech company to be caught up in a European Union crackdown on unfair tax deals. The fine was much lower than some sources close to the case had expected and is only a fraction of the 13 billion euros that Apple Inc APPL.O was ordered to pay to Ireland last year. EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager, who has other big U.S. tech companies in her sights, has taken a tough line on multinational companies’ approach to tax.
Pretty soon, it could be NFL team owners on their knees begging TV viewers to come back. Once again in Week 4 of the 2017 season, as players continued their sitting-kneeling protests against something, former fans silently exercised their right of free speech using TV remotes. Despite the always insightful, candid commentary of Jon Gruden, this week’s Monday Night game on ESPN lost audience again. It was actually a pretty good game, by all accounts. [Snip] This game though drew 13% fewer viewers than last week. And the drop was worse — 16% — in the key demo that ad
In the opening monologue to his late-night TV show on Monday, an emotional Jimmy Kimmel channeled what millions of Americans were thinking about the gun massacre on the Las Vegas Strip that killed at least 58 people and injured more than 500 others. Kimmel described it as an inexplicable attack by “a very sick person” with an “insane voice in his head.” On the brink of tears, Kimmel said, “We wonder why, even though there’s probably no way to know why a human being would do something like this.” It was a powerful moment, and yet these widely shared comments from
MADRID - Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy is struggling to secure support from across the traditional political divide in his battle to stop Catalonia breaking away - a lack of consensus that could compound Spain’s worst political crisis for decades. Rajoy is mulling the unprecedented step of invoking the constitution to dissolve the Catalan parliament and trigger regional elections, ruling party lawmakers say, after Catalonia held an independence vote on Sunday despite violent attempts to stop it. Sacking the Catalan government is known in Madrid as the “nuclear option”, given it is considered likely to foment unrest in Barcelona and through the
As the nation continues to reel from the nation’s worst mass shooting in modern history, politicians and other opportunists find the massacre too inviting not to exploit. The knee-jerk cravenness of liberals to scrape up their calls for gun-control while demonizing the National Rifle Association (NRA) immediately sucks all the air out of the room, eliminating any discussion or investigation of other foundational forces driving mass violence. At about 7:03 a.m. EDT, as the East Coast was waking up to the horrific news of the shooting in Las Vegas, Hillary Clinton was ready at the smartphone. With little information and even less decency,
Should House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell be repealed and replaced? The argument for their ouster, repeated ad nauseam, is that Republicans now control both houses of Congress, so how come the leaders won’t deliver for their Republican president? But are these attacks reasonable? Why has Mr. Ryan, for instance, come in for such sustained assaults by many on the right when the chamber he controls has delivered on significant fronts for both President Trump and conservatives generally, including — but not limited to — defense, health care, financial regulation and immigration?
If you happened to be traveling along a swampy, mosquito-infested route between Baton Rouge and Lafayette, La., back in the freewheeling 1980s, you may have witnessed an unusual occurrence: a half-dozen or so military duffle bags, each stuffed with 110 pounds of pure cocaine, plummeting from the sky. The man behind the drop was Barry Seal, who pushed them through a secret hatch in the floor of his airplane, installed there for precisely this purpose. One of the drug world’s most daring and ingenious smugglers, Seal was an action junkie who flew low and used Gulf of Mexico oil platforms to
Stephen Paddock, the gunman who carried out the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history, checked into a room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on Thursday.(Snip)However, a person who says he was a guest in the same room published a video on Facebook of the huge suite. He said he and his wife had stayed there one year earlier.Based on the guest´s video, it looks like Paddock stayed in a 1,705-square-foot "Vista" suite — a sprawling suite with wide windows looking out onto the Las Vegas Strip.The suite has what the Mandalay Bay calls a
Wall Street scaled new record highs on Wednesday after U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson denied reports that he considered resigning, allaying fears of fresh turmoil in the Trump administration. The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq reversed early losses following Tillerson’s comments, while the Dow extended gains. His comments come days after Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price resigned following an uproar over his use of costly private charter planes for government business. Investors fretted that another departure could weigh on Trump’s efforts to push through his much-awaited tax reform, one of his key
With Republicans in charge of government, legislative action on gun control is close to impossible, even in the wake of the Mandalay Bay massacre that killed at least 59 and wounded over 500. But to understand why gun-control efforts are so politically difficult, it’s more instructive to look at certain Democrats—the red-state variety who haven’t joined their national brethren in denouncing the National Rifle Association. Six red-state Senate Democrats representing largely rural states are up for reelection in 2018, and not one came out for more gun control in the wake of the Vegas killings. West Virginia’s Joe Manchin, who
You may have seen them--brown, flat bugs crawling around your door and window frames. They’re stink bugs and bug experts say if you see a few now, you can expect many more as fall goes on. They’re brown and big, according to Ellen Zinsmeister, who had one in her bathtub. “Actually my daughter saw it. Who’s an adult, this is her son and she came running to get her dad,” Zinsmeister said. The creepy crawlers are brown marmorated stink bugs. If you’re seeing them now get ready.
The outspokenly liberal Alec Baldwin admitted to Sen. Bernard Sanders recently that he fears his impression of Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live” may have backfired, Entertainment Weekly reported Wednesday. Mr. Baldwin made the admission in an interview with the former Democratic presidential candidate on the Oct. 3 edition of his “Here’s the Thing” podcast, a production of WNYC Studios. “In terms of Trump, do you think we’re making him a little too cuddly, a little too funny, and we’re taking people’s minds off stuff that’s a little more serious?” he asked the socialist legislator from Vermont, according to EW.
The mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, strongly denounced Donald Trump Tuesday night after the president visited the island, calling him the “miscommunicator in chief” and “insulting.” “He was insulting to the people of Puerto Rico,” Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz said Tuesday night on MSNBC hours after meeting Trump face-to-face at a briefing with Puerto Rican leaders and the president. Beyond the briefing, Trump also toured damaged areas and helped distribute supplies, flicking paper towels into a crowd with the motion of a jump shot in basketball. All of it, Cruz said, was disingenuous. “This was a PR, 17-minute meeting.
Washington - In August 2016, just two months before the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission discovered its corporate filing system had been hacked, the SEC’s internal watchdog, Carl Hoecker, received a plea for help from his new forensics investigative unit. (Snip) The forensics unit’s staff were told to use equipment due for disposal when they asked for supplies and ended up repurposing computer hard drives instead. Their hardware budget for the fiscal 2017 year at $100,000 was about half a million dollars short of what was needed, the memo said. “Even though the (Digital Forensics and Investigations Unit) has
