Kaepernick sits out national anthem; says he
did so because U.S. ‘oppresses black people’

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick made waves with his preseason debut Friday evening against the Packers, but not on account of his performance. The 28-year-old Super Bowl vet caused a stir after it was reported that he sat down instead of standing when the national anthem was played prior to Friday’s game in Green Bay. “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color,” Mr. Kaepernick told NFL Media in an interview published Saturday. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish

After Ailes, Fox News Has A New
Crisis: Can It Keep Megyn Kelly?

For a few glorious weeks this summer, Fox News seemed as if it had emerged from a retrograde stupor defined, in part, by “leg cams,” the cinematic technique predicated on shooting broadcasters at thigh level, in favor of a period of enlightenment. After former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson filed a sexual-harassment lawsuit against the network’s co-founder, Roger Ailes, numerous other women came forward with surprising velocity to voice their own allegations. Meanwhile, James Murdoch, the C.E.O. of 21st Century Fox, and his brother, Lachlan Murdoch, its executive chairman, swiftly ordered an aggressive internal investigation to be administered by the

A software company that sells a brute-force data erasure program is boasting that its technology gave Hillary Clinton the power to ´wipe´ her private homebrew email server before it fell into the hands of the FBI. Application developer Andrew Ziem wrote in a Thursday night press release that his BleachBit software prevented the FBI from accessing emails that Clinton deleted. ´Last year when Clinton was asked about wiping her email server, she joked, "Like with a cloth or something?" It turns out now that BleachBit was that cloth.´ When Windows, Mac OS, Linux or other operating systems ´delete´ files, their entries in a

´He Trades in Racism´

Fox News´ Shepard Smith strayed from the Fox News script today while interviewing Wall Street Journal reporter James Grimaldi following Hillary Clinton´s Reno, Nevada speech. Actually that´s putting it mildly. Smith crashed through the barrier of at least putting up the appearance of neutrality and broke into the realm of flat out bias of the worst sort by charging Donald Trump with racism. If you think I am exaggerating, watch the following video of the exchange for yourself and you be the judge.

Target is launching a first-of-its-kind one-day sale to try and boost back-to-school shopper traffic amid a boycott over its bathroom policy. The retailer is offering a 10% discount on everything in its stores and online on Sunday. Target is calling the event #TargetRunDay. It marks the first time Target has ever offered a 10% discount both in stores and on its website. The sale comes after Target last week reported its first quarterly traffic decline in more than two years. Target´s same-store transactions, which is how traffic is measured, fell 2.2% in the second quarter. Overall, sales fell 7.2% to $16.2 billion. "In the second

Hillary Rodham Clinton has a weakness for questionable, ethnically vague proverbs — “It takes a village,” from an “African” proverb, and all that piffle—and she broke out a shopworn specimen in denouncing Donald Trump, on this occasion an “old Mexican proverb” that seems to exist largely in Democratic attack rhetoric: “Tell me with whom you walk, and I’ll tell you who you are,” the idea being that Trump likes to play footsy with peckerwood-trash racists and the white-power basement-dwellers whose homepage is Breitbart. Mrs. Clinton is correct about that, for what it’s worth (I warned you knuckleheads about this back

SANTA CLARA — Colin Kaepernick didn’t do much to warrant headlines with his performance on the field Friday, but he’s certainly in for his fair share of scrutiny after he sat through the national anthem before his preseason debut against the Packers. Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com was first to report Kaepernick didn’t stand for the national anthem and got the 49ers to issue a statement on the matter. The statement from the 49ers to PFT: “The national anthem is and always will be a special part of the pre-game ceremony. It is an opportunity to honor our country and reflect

Hillary Clinton’s Reaction to Her
Foundation Scandal Is Disastrous

I recently sliced the tip of my toe on an ocean barnacle. This happened at 6pm on a Friday of a long-awaited beach weekend, so I avoided the emergency room for stitches. Overdosing on rosé was no cure. My minor wound kept bleeding. I finally went to the doctor when I got home where I got crutches, antibiotics for the infection, and an avoidable weeklong recovery for a tiny cut, for no reason other than my bullheadedness. As I watch Hillary Clinton wish away the fallout of the Clinton Foundation’s unseemly ties with the State Department during her tenure as Secretary of

What I was trying emphasize with all the poll talk Wednesday is that this race is over. There is no coming back from where Trump is now. A candidate with high-favorables and a semi-competent campaign—say, Bob Dole—couldn´t do it. A conspiracy-obsessed narcissist who is hated by 60 percent of the country and whose operation spends more money on hats and private planes than on voter turnout isn´t going to do it.

Stripping down! Girls stars Lena Dunham and Jemima Kirke banded together in next to nothing for a series of non-Photoshopped lingerie portraits released on Wednesday, August 24. The sultry photos are part of a body-positive initiative called The Lonely Girls Project, by New Zealand-based intimates and swimwear company Lonely. For their photo session, Dunham, 30, and Kirke, 31, wore lacy, see-through bralettes and panties in muted pastel colors, while lounging in bed and hanging out in a bathroom.

While Hillary Clinton was preparing to deliver a big speech portraying Donald Trump as a racist, a figure from Clinton´s recent unhappy past — Rep. Trey Gowdy, chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi — added a new word to the 25-year vocabulary of Clinton scandals: BleachBit. That is the name of a publicly-available utility used to delete material from a computer´s hard disk. And it´s not just for casual, quickie deletes of junk mail. It´s for when a user really wants to destroy material on a computer so that no one will be able to recover it. According to Gowdy,

DETROIT — The U.S. is seeking to forcibly limit how fast trucks, buses and other large vehicles can travel on the nation’s highways. A new proposal Friday would impose a nationwide limit by electronically capping speeds with a device on newly made U.S. vehicles that weigh more than 26,000 pounds. Regulators are considering a cap of 60, 65 or 68 mph, though that could change. Whatever the speed limit, drivers would be physically prevented from exceeding it. The proposal, which comes from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, does not force older heavy vehicles
