Reebok Fitness Apparel & Footwear? manufacturer went full Social Justice Warrior and posted this tweet on Friday. (Tweet/Photo) With this tweet Reebok did three things. 1.) They condemned complementing women 2) They trashed President Donald Trump for complimenting the French President’s wife 3.) The decided they no longer want conservatives to purchase their products. Thank you Reebok for being up front and honest. Are you aware that conservatives control 60% of the purchasing power in America? Conservatives weighed in on this decision—
Is Reebok manufactured in Mexico, Pakistan or Taiwan? Just wonderin. My bet is they are not made in the USA. But I could be wrong. I don´t have time to check. At any rate I will check my shoe rack and any Reebok´s I find will hit the bottom of my trash can.
The public does not know what preceded President Trump´s compliment to Brigitte Macron; it may be that she had expressed some reservation about public perception of the age difference between her husband and herself that might have included Nature´s visual toll on the human body. Or, perhaps they were talking about energy levels and keeping up the demands of such a high-profile position as FirstLady of France. There could be any number of possibilities that prompted his compliment, his reassurance to her--including nothing more than the gentleman he can be in wanting to compliment the “fashionable” FirstLady of Paris,France.
Sarah Sanders kicked off a crowded White Hose briefing with an introduction to, Office of Management and Budget Director, Mick Mulvaney. Mulvaney efficiently outlined what the Trump administration’s ambitious economic plans. Utilizing two screens, “MAGANOMICS” (a play on Make America Great Again) was displayed as he explained the term embodies a “unifying theme of just about everything that we do” economically; Mulvaney expressed his confidence that a 3% economic growth yield could be achieved under this administration. Read the transcript from Mulvaney’s full discussion below: Thirty-five years ago, the situation the country was in had some similarities to where we
WASHINGTON— California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, a favorite among liberal progressives, told The Daily Caller Thursday that this weekend’s scheduled appearance in New Hampshire has nothing to do with potentially running for president in 2020. But she said that she would run for president if millenials want her to. “I’m just going up to do a county Democratic thing. That’s all,” she said. When TheDC pressed further, Waters, an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, said laughing, “I’m not running for anything but my own seat. I don’t have any presidential aspirations. If the millennials want me to do it,
Bill Nye “the Science Guy” said Wednesday that significant action on climate change will be possible once the climate skeptics and deniers of older generations die off. Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, the 61-year-old TV host was asked to comment on a recent Pew survey that revealed 58 percent of Republicans and right-leaning Independents believe higher education has a negative effect on the country, a number that spiked significantly during President Trump’s rise to power. Mr. Nye said people are just scared of the truth. “It just sounds like people are afraid,” he said. “And the people who are
I don´t think I´ve ever read a presidential interview quite like the one Donald Trump gave to the New York Times yesterday. Going over the transcript, there were times when I thought I was reading a David Mamet play. (You can read the full thing here.) Because speculating about the Russia investigation is this city´s favorite hobby, the rest of the media are following the Times‘ lead of focusing on Trump´s remarks about Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, acting FBI director Andrew McCabe, and special counsel Robert Mueller. How can Jeff Sessions remain in his job,
The Obama administration had a secret plan in place to deploy troops to voting stations across the country on election day, according to documents obtained exclusively by TIME Magazine. The New York Post reports: "The Obama administration was poised to send armed federal agents to polling places, deploy the military and launch full-scale counter-propaganda measures in case hackers disrupted the vote on Election Day, according to a report. The 15-page playbook, produced in October, outlined the “enhanced measures” the government was prepared to take in the event of a “significant incident,” Time magazine reported Thursday, citing a copy of
President Trump´s son and his former campaign manager will face a subpoena if they don´t appear willingly before Congress, Senate Judiciary Committee leaders warned. "We asked them for a voluntary appearance," Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the top Republican on the panel, told CNN on Thursday. "I hope they accept the subpoena voluntarily, but if they don´t then you have to have a marshal give it and that takes a little more time." Grassley wants Donald Trump Jr., and Paul Manafort to testify about alleged ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. The request was sparked by news of
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tried to be patriotic but read a false account of the 56 Declaration of Independence signers during her Tuesday press conference. Pelosi read “The Price They Paid,” an article about the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence, at a Democrat event to promote a legislative package aimed at reforming government. “I just want to read this one thing because it’s July,” Pelosi said, pulling out her mobile phone. “We came back from the Fourth of July celebration and I saw this article.” “Now, our founders, they sacrificed their lives, their liberty, their sacred honor
The very fake news scandal engulfing CNN just erupted again on Wednesday afternoon as CNN’s Chris Cillizza published demonstrably fake news. What’s more, Cillizza’s significant mistake ropes two more CNN anchors—Kate Bolduan and Brooke Baldwin—into the very fake news scandal touching nearly every single person at CNN. The fake news from Cillizza specifically was meant to rebut President Donald Trump’s attacks on the fake media after the nothing story about a supposed extra, previously unreported “meeting” with Russian president Vladimir Putin at the recent G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany. Many media outlets went haywire on Tuesday when the extra “meeting”
Host of Fox News’ “Specialists” Eric Bolling commented Wednesday during his “Wake Up America” segment that Chicago is a “warzone” because of liberal Democrats – he’s not wrong. (Photo) Bolling opens the segment with his signature intro before jumping right into the topic, “It’s time to wake up America! My hometown of Chicago, folks, this breaks my heart to say, but Chicago is literally a war zone. Here are the facts . . .” The facts are: Afghanistan’s population of 32.5 million was hit with 5.9 violent deaths per every 100,000 people. Chicago, with 2.72 million citizens, saw 13.5 violent
Controversial Kremlin-connected energy firm Joule Unlimited, which received millions from a Vladimir Putin-connected Russian government fund and counted former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta as a executive board member, has collapsed, according to the firm’s former chief executive. “The investors walked away,” former Joule Unlimited CEO Brian Baynes told The Digest, a biofuel publication. First revealed in research from Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large and Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President Peter Schweizer, Podesta joined the executive board of Joule Unlimited Technologies — a Boston, Massachusetts-based firm that received $35 million from the Russian government while Clinton served as secretary of
The group behind last week´s protest against the National Rifle Association over rhetoric it claimed was a "direct endorsement of violence" wished a convicted cop killer and fugitive a happy birthday on Monday. "Happy birthday to the revolutionary #AssataShakur!" the verified Twitter account for the Women´s March tweeted. "Today´s #SignOfResistance, in Assata´s honor, is by @Meloniousfunk." The tweet included a painting of Assata Shakur, also known as Joanne Chesimard, with the slogan "A woman´s place is in the struggle." The Women´s March praise for Chesimard came less than a week after the group organized a protest of the National Rifle Association
Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska and Sen. John McCain´s vice presidential running mate in the 2008 election, showed her support for the senator on social media Wednesday after he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer. "John McCain is one tough fighter - we know he´ll face this diagnosis with courage and strength. Our family continues to lift John and his family up in prayer," Palin posted alongside a photo of herself and McCain on Facebook. (FB copy) A flood of bipartisan support from U.S. lawmakers and government official followed the announcement of McCain´s diagnosis of brain
WASHINGTON — President Trump said on Wednesday that he never would have appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions had he known Mr. Sessions would recuse himself from overseeing the Russia investigation that has dogged his presidency, calling the decision “very unfair to the president.” In a remarkable public break with one of his earliest political supporters, Mr. Trump complained that Mr. Sessions’s decision ultimately led to the appointment of a special counsel that should not have happened. “Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and
The Minnesota cop who shot and killed an Australian bride-to-be opened fire on her after being startled by a “loud sound” near his patrol car, investigators say. Officer Mohamed Noor, 31, began blasting at 40-year-old Justine Damond, of Minneapolis, just moments after he and his partner, Matthew Harrity, heard the noise in the alley behind her house, according to the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The agency provided an update Tuesday on their investigation into the Saturday night shooting. Officers Noor and Harrity had been called to Damond’s home after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault happening
Heading to church one evening in late March, a farmworker and her sister were stopped for speeding in the village of Geneseo, N.Y. They were driving with their five children in the back of the minivan. Two were not in car seats, as required. The police officer, trying to cite the driver for the infractions, discovered she had no driver’s license, so he called Border Patrol to review her Guatemalan passport. Both sisters were undocumented immigrants. They were detained and are facing deportation. Under a Trump administration that has taken an aggressive stance on illegal immigration, the moving car has
The Humiliation Of Jeff Sessions- There is something more than a little jarring in the ongoing humiliation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In an ill-timed, ill-focused interview with the NYT, President Trump revisited his disdain for Sessions, his first, most-ardent and most-loyal supporter in the Senate. When supporting Trump was still considered career suicide, Sessions donned the red cap anyway. Maybe it will prove fatal for Sessions’ career, after all. The president has not made a secret of the fact that he blames Sessions for the scandal that now engulfs the Trump administration, claiming in
President Trump sat down with Russian President Vladimir Putin for a second discussion at the G-20 summit in Germany this month — a talk the White House never disclosed, according to reports. The talk came hours after their two-hour bilateral meeting on July 7, towards the end of a “couples-only social dinner” at the summit, National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton told CNN. Trump and Putin conversed in the room where the dinner was being held. “No staff or Cabinet were at the dinner at all, for any of the countries,” Anton said, adding that translators were present. The White
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has been diagnosed with brain cancer, the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix said Wednesday. The tumor was discovered after the senior Arizona senator underwent a minor procedure last week to remove a blood clot from above his left eye. "Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot," the hospital said in a statement. “The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation."
The U.S. special counsel investigating possible ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia in last year’s election is examining a broad range of transactions involving Trump’s businesses as well as those of his associates, according to a person familiar with the probe. The president told the New York Times on Wednesday that any digging into matters beyond Russia would be out of bounds. Trump’s businesses have involved Russians for years, making the boundaries fuzzy so Special Counsel Robert Mueller appears to be taking a wide-angle approach to his two-month-old probe. FBI investigators and others are looking at Russian purchases of apartments
Target Corp. Chief Executive Officer Brian Cornell is sounding alarm bells over the state of Hispanic shoppers in the U.S. -- a key growth demographic for many retailers and consumer brands. “The Hispanic consumer in the U.S. is shopping much less,” Cornell said at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech event Tuesday in Aspen, Colorado. “They are staying home. They are going out less often.” Cornell didn’t mention President Donald Trump by name, but he talked about a shift in behavior this year and mentioned “border towns” -- where retailers for years have depended on shoppers from northern Mexico for higher revenue.
Health Reform: There were lots of celebrations on the left side of the aisle after the Senate GOP bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare died. The good times will be short lived, because one way or another ObamaCare is going away, and it´s not at all clear that Democrats will gain additional leverage over what comes next by waiting for its collapse. It was amusing to hear Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer say, after the Senate bill failed, that Republicans should "work with Democrats on a bill that lowers premiums, provides long-term stability to the markets and improves our health care
Arizona Senator John McCain has been diagnosed with brain cancer. The 80-year-old veteran politician was given the diagnosis last week after he had a blood clot removed. In a statement late Wednesday, doctors reveal that McCain has been diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive cancer. The statement says the 80-year-old senator and his family are reviewing further treatment, including a combination of chemotherapy and radiation. The senator has been recovering at his Arizona home after doctors at the Mayo Clinic removed a blood clot above his left eye. The former presidential candidate, who has represented Arizona since 1987, went for his annual checkup, complaining of fatigue
We just learned that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is in a battle against brain cancer. Yet, he´s not letting that stop him from still speaking his mind on foreign policy. Reports suggest that President Trump has ended a CIA program to arm and train anti-Assad rebels in Syria. The senator said that is unacceptable and used it to suggest the Trump administration has yet to offer a comprehensive plan on Syria. He also predicted that Russia will be huge fans of this development, since they want to see Bashar al-Assad remain in power.
Donald Trump Jr. is reportedly "miserable" and can´t wait for the next four years to end. A friend of President Trump´s sons told People that Trump Jr. and Eric Trump "never wanted this." “Don can’t do any deals, because he’ll be overly scrutinized. He just goes to work every day and is miserable," a source in their circle added. Trump Jr. is facing backlash after news surfaced earlier this month that he took a meeting last year with a Russian lawyer. Last week, Trump Jr. released a chain of emails detailing his conversations about setting up the meeting with the Russian
