NBA Suspends Sterling Indefinitely,
Does Not Force Him To Sell Clippers

Daily Caller, by Sarah Hofmann

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/29/2014 2:15:18 PM

NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced Tuesday that in lieu of forcing Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling to sell his team, Sterling will be suspended indefinitely and will be fined $5 million. TMZ first broke the story about 20 minutes before the official press conference. The NBA holds approval rights on who runs the team and will not be punishing any of Sterling’s family. The league has been wrestling with how to punish Sterling following the weekend release of audio showing that he demanded that his girlfriend not bring black people to Clippers games. The NBA’s investigators determined that the tape had not

Some of the details of this article are off. He was suspended for life, fined $2.5 million, and barred from anything having to do with the team. The NBA will do everything in their power to get him to sell the team. Straight from Adam Silver´s press conference.

I don´t see ostracizing someone for life that spoke under their 1st amendment rights. I can´t see the NBA having that authority. We have not ostracized John Kerry for life for what he said about our troops. I despise everything the democrats say. I would like see an effort to ostracize them for life, and ban them from public office.

Obama´s fall campaign in June

President Obama offered a scathing indictment of congressional Republicans during an economic speech in Minnesota on Friday, accusing his political opponents of failing to “do anything, except block me and call me names.” The president argued the GOP had “blocked or voted down every serious idea to strengthen the middle class” offered by Democrats this year. He specifically cited efforts to raise the minimum wage, pass legislation guaranteeing fair pay between men and women and implement immigration reform. The remarks felt like an opening to the serious campaign season, given Congress’s departure from Washington for the July 4 recess. Lawmakers have spent relatively

Iraq has bought used fighter jets from Russia and Belarus to battle Islamist militants after long delays in the delivery of F-16 planes from the U.S. left troops without air support, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said. Maliki, in an interview with BBC Arabic yesterday, blamed the U.S.’s “long, very slow way” for delaying the delivery of 36 aircraft. “We shouldn’t have just bought U.S. jets, we should have bought British, French and Russian jets to provide air support. If we had air support, none of this would have happened,” he said, according to excerpts e-mailed by the BBC. The U.S is delivering

A young New Jersey mother shown in a cell phone video being pummeled by a former co-worker has spoken out for the first time since the vicious attack, saying she was shocked that no one besides her 2-year-old son came to her rescue. Catherine Ferreira, 27, appeared before reporters in her home in Salem, New Jersey, Friday with a badly swollen face and two black eyes. Ferreira suffered a broken nose and a mild concussion at the hands of Latia Harris, 25, who was captured on video throwing the petite woman to the ground like a rag doll and repeatedly

As lawmakers prepare to skip town for the Fourth of July holiday next week, a long to-do list will remain in their wake. While that´s nothing new -- especially in an election year, getting just about anything of substance done is an achievement -- Congress is set to leave without finalizing its response to the burgeoning Veterans Affairs health care scandal that cost a Cabinet secretary his job and is tied to numerous reported deaths. Both chambers have passed legislation to grapple with the crisis, but Tuesday´s first meeting of a 28-member conference committee tasked with merging the bills revealed a

Despite President Obama´s promise to stay focused on hunting down those responsible for the 2012 Benghazi attack -- and despite a recent arrest touted as a major takedown -- sources say little has been done to nab the other suspects. According to multiple sources on the ground, including some with direct knowledge of the operations to identify and hunt the Benghazi suspects, intelligence that could have been acted upon at times has been ignored or put on hold. Further, they say, the recent capture of Ahmed Abu Khattala -- now on a ship bound for the U.S., expected to arrive this

You may have heard that the Internal Revenue Service has lost some emails. We are going to help the agency find them — either on their own, or through an investigation by a Special Counsel. These aren’t just any emails. They are emails from 2009 through 2011 that Lois Lerner sent as head of the division of the IRS responsible for targeting conservative groups based on their political beliefs. In March, the IRS promised to turn over these emails as part of the ongoing congressional investigations into political targeting. Now the agency says they are lost, the result of an

Let’s just tick through what’s going on on the border. Whether it’s accidental or by DACA design, the US-Mexico border is being overrun with illegal aliens from Central America. Mexico was once known for its tough handling of its southern border with Belize and Guatemala. Not anymore. At least 52,000 illegal aliens have managed to cross Mexico and reach the US border in the past few months. Many of them are kids. Some of them are hardcore criminals. With Hizballah known to be active in South America and Mexico, who knows who else may be using this moment to slip into the US? Our

Bob Corker wants a problem-solver to run for president in 2016. Not by chance, that´s how the Tennessee Republican and ranking member on the Foreign Relations Committee describes his own role in the Senate. "Every senator has probably thought about it," Corker said about running for president. "All I really wish to see happen in 2016 is that we have a good president, great president for our nation. I hope someone steps forward that has the ability to solve problems—not just throw rhetoric out there." And despite serving in one of the least productive Senates in history, solving problems is

President Barack Obama channeled Hillary Clinton’s recent “dead broke” complaints Thursday, when he told a hard-hit Minnesota woman that Michelle Obama’s difficultly with a nanny in Chicago echoed her family’s history of repeated layoffs and wage cuts. Minnesota resident “Rebekah [Erier] sent me this letter, and it moved me,” Obama told his donors at an evening fund-raiser in Minneapolis, Minn, as he tried to show he is in touch with ordinary people’s concerns.

President Obama gave a pep talk to Senate Democrats over drinks at the White House this week, telling them a rising economy and ObamaCare’s healthy numbers should give them optimism about keeping their majority in November. Democrats are nervous about losing control of the Senate because of Obama’s low approval ratings and Republican success in recruiting candidates and beating back the Tea Party. Obama sought to cheer them up at Wednesday night’s meeting, several sources said. Unlike the last time the president hosted a reception for Democratic senators, he served them drinks and food as soon as they arrived instead

Exactly one year after the Senate passed an immigration reform bill that built a compromise on an exchange of increased enforcement for legalization for the 11 million, Republicans have now officially abandoned any pretense of a willingness to participate in solving the immigration crisis. Instead, they have committed the party to a course premised on two intertwined notions: There are no apparent circumstances under which they can accept legalization of the 11 million; and as a result, the only broad response to the crisis they can countenance is maximum deportations. This means it’s now all in Obama’s hands to decide what

More and more people are finally coming to the realization that President Obama is presiding over America´s decline, though there are differences of opinion as to whether he´s deliberately or even directly causing it. You have to admit that it´s outright bizarre and alarming that people are even having this discussion, yet many of us have been warning about it for years now. It is gratifying that others — albeit belatedly — are waking up. There are two separate issues: Is Obama trying to bring America down, and is his presidency falling apart (and what does that mean)?

Clinton aides have insisted Weiner “stay out of public life for two years,” and that he “avoid causing any further embarrassment to Huma or Clinton,” according to our sources.

President Obama is now reaching terminal velocity, like a skydiver plunging toward earth. Except he doesn’t have a parachute. There’s a mighty splat coming soon. With his approval rating at 40 percent, down 6 points from early June, and just 29 percent of Americans convinced the country is on the “right track,” the president is doubling down on his strategy of blaming Republicans for his failures. And he’s shifting into hyperpartisan drive, traveling the country to campaign for Democrats, many of whom wish he’d just stay away. Worse, the news just keeps getting well, worse: The Veterans Affairs scandal is blazing, with

Lois Lerner, the controversial director of the tax-exempt organizations division at the Internal Revenue Service, has a long sordid history of targeting conservatives. Under the direction of Lois Lerner, the Federal Election Commission sued the Christian Coalition in the 1990s. She harassed the Christian Coalition for three election cycles. Eventually, she lost her case. At one point Lerner even asked a targeted conservative if Pat Robertson prayed over him. (Sound familiar?) In 1996, while at the FEC, Lois Lerner harassed Republican Senate candidate Al Salvi and made him this outrageous offer, “Promise me you will never run for office again, and

Ordinarily, President Obama’s days are planned out to the smallest detail. But for his two-day excursion to Minnesota this week, the president boasted that he’s got little in the way of a formal agenda, has few firm plans, and warned Secret Service that he’s feeling “super loose” and could end up doing any number of things. “I don’t know. I’m just going to make it up as I go along,” Mr. Obama said during a town-hall meeting at Minneapolis’ Minnehaha Park, one of the few planned activities during his two-day stay in the Twin Cities. “I’m like a caged bear,

Republicans are in the strongest position to win back the Senate since losing it eight years ago. Over several months, the party has expanded its range of targeted seats, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has helped defeat insurgents it didn’t want representing the GOP in the midterm elections. This sober realization came to Democrats on Wednesday, as Tuesday night’s primary results showed they cannot count on Tea Party candidates upsetting more-electable incumbents. And Democrats are increasingly realizing that President Obama’s approval rating will probably remain mired at 45 percent or lower until

It was the elephant on the back of the elephant in the middle of the room. In a recent interview with Rusty Humphries, Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio made news by saying that the Obama administration was “incompetent” and that its current dumping of illegals in Arizona is intentional. Yet perhaps even more shocking was a 45-second segment of the interview that has received scant attention: A claim by Arpaio that he’s close to discovering who forged Barack Obama’s birth certificate. His comments were made between 9:59 and 10:44 in the interview and began as an explanation of why he

A shocking new report from the Center for Immigration Studies claims to prove that every single new job created in America for the last fourteen years has gone to immigrants, legal and illegal. This would fly in the face of those who claim that immigration is an economic boon to native born Americans: The CIS report found that over the last 14 years, people who were born in the United States held 114.8 million jobs in 2000, and held 114.7 million jobs in 2014, a drop of 127,000.
