The prime minister made no comment as he voted in Pontassieve, a Tuscan town east of Florence, along with his wife, Agnese Landini. Matteo Renzi, the prime minister, has said he will resign if the reforms are rejected, and opposition politicians have vowed to press for a new government if voters reject the proposed constitutional changes. Exit polls suggested he was heading for a defeat.

Suffice to say, anyone who has followed politics for any substantive amount of time knows the inherent issue with an operational entity, The U.S. State Department, whose entire mission has been at the epicenter of ctrl'left globalist advocacy.

Pollak Posted By: PageTurner- Sun, 04 48 2016 09:48:21 GMT The Russian'made jeep carrying the ashes of the late Cuban dictator Fidel Castro broke down in the middle of his funeral procession on Saturday, forcing soldiers to push the vehicle until it could be repaired. Nearly every major news website buried the news, though it was perfectly symbolic of the Cuban regime’s economic failures, and those of socialism in general. Fox News reported: The breakdown of the jeep in the midst of adoring crowds chanting “Long live Fidel!” was symbolic of the dual nature of Castro’s Cuba.

Blaine Gabbert took over at quarterback for the Niners and played the rest of the way in the 26'6 loss. Kaepernick, who finished the day 1 of 5 with four yards passing, entered the game at full strength and fresh off last week´s 296'yard performance. Over his last four games (not including Week 13 vs. Bears), he´s 86 of 145 for 1,110 yards with eight TDs and two interceptions.

Sgt. Ray Kelly of the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office warned that he anticipates that "the number of victims will rise" from a fire officials say may be the deadliest ever in Oakland. The search effort is expected to last for days, he said. (Snip)Oakland officials said they had opened an investigation into the warehouse last month, after repeated complaints from neighbors who said trash was piling up and people were illegally living in the building, which was zoned as a warehouse.

Todd´s charge came during a fiery exchange on Sunday about President'elect Trump´s recent deal with Carrier, during which he asked Pence if giving tax incentives to the air'conditioning company to prevent 1,100 jobs from being moved to Mexico constituted government intervention "in the private sector." "No, no. What happened here —" Pence began to respond. "Why is this is not government intervening in the private sector?"

That excuse comes to an end in January when Donald Trump is sworn into office with a Republican'controlled House and Senate. However, based on what we’re seeing from the lame'duck session, it is clear that the dearth of conservatism is not due to a lack of power but a lack of will.

"Mr. President Trump is telling the truth. I don´t know if it is correct or not correct, but he is telling the truth," said Jaime Garcia Astorga, secretary of economic development of Santa Catarina in the state of Nuevo Leon. "And he is making the thing that he has promised." He was interviewed on CNBC.

"I also did not support him nor did I oppose him. Nor did I support or oppose any other candidate," said the former CIA director. "I´ve truly tried to be apolitical, nonpolitical," Petraeus added.

Crews have only been able to search 20 percent of the building, so it is still feared that the death count could go much higher, according to officials. The Oakland Fire Department responded to reports of a structure fire on 31st Avenue at around 11:32 p.m. on Friday night. Oakland Fire Chief Teresa Deloach Reed said the warehouse appears to be a work and residential building that hosts a makeshift artists´ studio.

EPA celebrated its 46th anniversary Friday, just weeks before President'elect Donald Trump likely takes the agency in a totally different direction compared to the last eight years under President Barack Obama, focusing on clean air and quality instead of global warming. Not only is Trump looking to roll back Obama'era regulations, the incoming administration reportedly has plans to fundamentally reform major decades'old environmental laws: The Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Dem Rep Ellison: House Democrats Will Do Nothing But ‘Vote No’ Under Trump Sun, 04 11 2016 05:11:27 GMT http://www.Lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=896298 addca1e6ccd4c24d3aaaf52a929b38566dd79dda Daily Caller, by Peter Hasson Posted By: KarenJ1- Sun, 04 11 2016 05:11:27 GMT Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, widely considered a frontrunner to be the next Democratic National Committee chair, says House Democrats will do nothing but “vote no” in the coming years under the new Trump administration. Ellison, who has faced questions over whether he can juggle both working in Congress and rebuilding a depleted Democratic Party, defended himself at a party meeting on Friday by suggesting that working as a Democratic congressman won’t require much effort. “I’m in the process of deciding this issue of whether I can perform both roles,” Ellison said, according to the New York Times.

Donald Trump’s political influence as a businessman, now President'elect, exists in that rare authentic space where traditional politicians have consistently failed. Not only is Trump completely reshaping the republican party, more importantly he’s establishing a coalition that will overwhelm any DC opposition in the short'term, and make any political opposition futile in the long'term.

The interview started with Wallace wanting to know why Stein hadn’t requested a recount in New Hampshire even though Hillary Clinton carried that state by a much more narrow margin than the three states she did request recounts in. Stein explained that it was because the deadline had passed for New Hampshire.
