Mr Taleb, a world'renowned statistician and academic, made the remarks amid growing chaos in Europe about how to deal with the fallout of Britain´s historic vote to leave the Brussels bloc. He said the entire world has grown tired of a sneering elite which has spent the last few decades "patronising the bottom 30 per cent" whilst vastly enriching itself.

Comedy Central announced on Wednesday that 26'year'old Williams would be leaving the popular show after four years working alongside Jon Stewart and his replacement, Trevor Noah. She kicked off the final segment with a brief introduction about the battle for the Democratic nomination between Sanders and Clinton. ´After an impassioned Democratic primary between the Curb Your Enthusiasm guy and the Mother of Dragons, the voting is finally over,´ Williams said in her introduction referencing More than 925,000 ´deported´ illegal immigrants are still in the U.S. – including 70,000 with criminal records Fri, 01 05 2016 05:05:18 GMT ede51077afe862d186324b2047b7e730ed2d0963 Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko Posted By: Attercliffe- Fri, 01 05 2016 05:05:18 GMT More than 925,000 illegal immigrants are walking the streets of the United States despite government orders for their deportation, according to a new report. And more than 170,000 of them have been convicted of crimes in the U.S. Those numbers indicate that nearly 1 in 10 people living in the U.S. illegally have already been ordered to leave, but are defying federal immigration authorities. The Center for Immigration Studies, a center'right think tank, published the startling statistics on Friday. The group´s policy studies director, Jessica Vaughan, told The Washington Times that only a tiny fraction of the deported'but'not'departed ´aliens´ are already in custody.

Those three markets in battleground states are where the Democratic presidential candidate has most heavily run her first wave of general'election broadcast television ads, a Bloomberg Politics analysis of Kantar Media/CMAG data shows. The review also shows how the top super'PAC backing her, Priorities USA, is allowing her to conserve resources by covering certain markets almost entirely for her.

"I fully expect to accept their recommendations," she said Friday in a public interview. "I will be accepting their recommendations."

The index has been climbing since Tuesday as confidence recovered from the initial shock over the outcome of the referendum. Bank of England Governor Mark Carney yesterday evening injected extra confidence into markets by promising Britain is tough enough to deal with the transition period of leaving the bloc.

This spring, the state’s legislature passed H.B. 1523, an extensive law written to protect people who believe any of the following: that marriage is between a man and a woman; that sex should only happen in the context of marriage; and that the words “male” and “female” refer to “an individual’s immutable biological sex as objectively determined by anatomy and genetics at time of birth.” The law claim these protections are a form of religious freedom.(Snip)The law is significant for the state and the country, though, not least because of its parallels to Mississippi’s EXCLUSIVE: Was Bill Clinton Plea Bargaining With The Attorney General?

But the former president may also have been pleading for himself, according to a former federal prosecutor.

In March, the president and vice president endorsed Murphy, who (until recently) was considered by establishment figures to have the best shot at winning the seat.

Wolf Posted By: JoniTx- Fri, 01 06 2016 04:06:45 GMT Yesterday, rumors started to circulate that Indiana governor Mike Pence was "in play" as a possible Trump VP pick. I largely dismissed these rumors because it doesn´t really make sense for either guy. Pence has a tough re'election coming up and it doesn´t make sense that he would abandon it for a suicide run as Trump´s VP. Plus, Pence was a Cruz endorser which drew bitter criticism from Trump. The pieces didn´t seem to fit. I chalked it up to the Trump campaign trying to create Pence VP buzz, especially since the Pence camp was adamant that they had had Deputies: CWP holder injures Spartanburg Co. nightclub shooting suspect Fri, 01 59 2016 03:59:53 GMT 933bc01adf7d14f09e4e82dae0ef37034a8eef2f WIS-TV [Columbia, SC], by Heather Carpenter & Dal Kalsi Posted By: Hazymac- Fri, 01 59 2016 03:59:53 GMT LYMAN, SC - Deputies with Spartanburg County said a man faces multiple attempted murder charges after opening fire outside a nightclub early Sunday morning. The shooting happened around 3:30 a.m. at Playoffz nightclub on Inman Road in Lyman. Deputies said 32-year-old Jody Ray Thompson pulled out a gun after getting into an argument with another man and fired several rounds toward a crowd that had gathered out in front of the club. "His rounds struck three victims, and almost struck a fourth victim, who in self-defense, pulled his own weapon and fired, striking Thompson in the leg," Lt. Kevin Bobo said.

He’s a Chicago businessman and, in the words of the Tribune, the “first friend” to President Obama. Since 2014 he has served as the chairman of the Barack Obama Foundation, the nonprofit that will build the Obama Presidential Center and library, and it was to the possible architects of the library that his email sought to introduce me. “We have big plans for the Obama Foundation and Presidential Center, friends,” he wrote.

Sheldon Whitehouse recently told people gathered in New York City that global warming “denial” hurts U.S. soldiers in the field and that the “main problem” with the military is its reluctance to join the climate crusade. “The problem has been that the uniformed military has been reluctant to put its voice into – or its image into this fight,” Whitehouse said, according to a YouTube video posted Thursday. “But, it’s hard to put a panel of people in uniform in front of the Environmental and Public Works Committee and say, you know, I’m a general, I’m U.S. Military to Allow Soldiers to Crossdress Fri, 01 26 2016 03:26:52 GMT e99dca2ed8d478f6d7b158d1804a805bc3d1cb4d Breitbart Big Government, by Thomas D.

Carter. Carter said, however, that new recruits would have to crossdress for at least 18 months prior to joining the military, presumably to avoid last-minute transitions from one mode of dress to another. Still, if a member of the armed forces wishes to swap genders while serving on active duty, that person may be able to do so “if a military medical provider determines it is necessary,” according to reports.

U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves filed orders in two lawsuits blocking the law just moments before it was to take effect Friday. State attorneys are expected to appeal. The law would protect three beliefs: That marriage is only between a man and a woman; that sex should only take place in such a marriage; and that a person´s gender is determined at birth and cannot be altered. It would allow clerks to cite religious objections to recuse themselves Virginia Governor Blasts Religious Freedom Fri, 01 33 2016 02:33:09 GMT 7761a0feb9e300a00e3861a1390465cc85a60a75 Weekly Standard, by Conor Beck Posted By: grace127- Fri, 01 33 2016 02:33:09 GMT Governor Terry McAuliffe of Virginia decried having to "veto a so'called ´religious freedom´ bill. It´s such an oxymoron," on WTOP radio Wednesday. The bill that McAuliffe vetoed is a short one, and simply states that religious organizations or clergy should not be required to participate in the solemnization of marriages and should not be penalized for their refusal to do so. Its language specifically aimed to protect the actions of those "with a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction that marriage is or should be recognized as the union of one man and one woman." Trump the polls Fri, 01 31 2016 02:31:50 GMT b3fca44fa90ff47592022162bb98e01790110591, by Don Surber Posted By: earlybird- Fri, 01 31 2016 02:31:50 GMT The Rasmussen Poll became the first poll in a month to show Trump ahead, by five points. This is worth considering because of the way Rasmussen conducted the survey. Rasmussen used Likely Voters, a more expensive but more accurate method of capturing the electorate´s mood than the Registered Voters polls. The expense comes in targeting the calls. You call 1,000 registered voters to get 600 likely voters rather than calling 600 registered voters. Registered Voters polls are biased toward Democrats, historically. All the other polls in the Real Clear Polls Average are RV polls. 25 Years Later, How Clarence Thomas Has Transformed the Supreme Court Fri, 01 19 2016 02:19:01 GMT 4baa3ab008ada1f37503b8fe6d44d8f0f56ff761 Daily Signal, by Philip Wegmann Posted By: grace127- Fri, 01 19 2016 02:19:01 GMT When the Senate confirmed Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court in the fall of 1991, he was still new to the flowing black robes that cloak federal magistrates. A rookie justice on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, Thomas had served as a judge only since March 1990. Still raw from a bruising, 107'day confirmation process that wrapped up at the end of October 1991, Thomas had only a few weeks to prepare to hear cases that November. “The easiest thing in the world under the circumstances would just be to go along to get along.

Yet that´s precisely what Greenpeace is doing when it comes to the safety of "genetically modified" foods. More than 100 Nobel Prize winners in physics, chemistry, medicine and other sciences this week signed a blistering letter attacking Greenpeace´s "fact'challenged propaganda campaign against innovations in agricultural biotechnology." "Greenpeace and their allies have claimed falsely that GMOS are dangerous, untested and inadequately regulated," the letter states.

The 12' and 14'year'old will no longer be considered for naturalised citizenship because they have not complied with the school curriculum, authorities in Basel said. The girls are understood to have refused to take part in school swimming lessons because boys were present and their religion forbade that form of interaction, according to USA Today. Their applications for Swiss passports have now been overturned.

The arrests happened Wednesday at the site of Spectra Energy’s West Roxbury Lateral pipeline. Forty'two'year'old Karenna Gore was among demonstrators that tried to block construction activity on the site by lying in a trench.

She is now viewed with "no confidence" by huge swathes of the European population at a time when the EU is facing potential oblivion in the aftermath of the Brexit vote. The results show a growing backlash against Germany from the rest of a bloc that feels Mrs Merkel has trashed their economies and unleashed huge levels of migration for her own country´s gain. And the survey was carried out before Britain voted to leave the EU, with
