ESPN host under fire again for calling
Trump a ´white supremacist´ just weeks

Daily Mail [UK], by Jessa Schroeder and Keith Griffith

ESPN´s Jemele Hill is under fire once again for her controversial comments. The SportsCenter co-host has been slammed for describing President Trump as ´a white supremacist´ in a post on her Twitter page. The sports commentator ignited the social media tirade Monday during a conversation regarding ´racist´ singer Kid Rock´s potential Senate run. (Snip) ´Trump is the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime. His rise is a direct result of white supremacy. Period,´ she added, alongside a message calling him a ´bigot´ after. ´He is unqualified and unfit to be president. He is not a leader. And if he were not white,

Comments:
Words from the Disney boardroom, or from the Twitter feed of a sports commentator? Another good move for a network whose customer base is in a well-deserved freefall.

ESPN is more interested in selling leftist propaganda than in sports.

Is there no company that will go out there and run them out of business by providing a superior (and free of ´hata America´ political commentary) product with only sports?

Shouldn´t be hard to steal all their audience in a couple of weeks.

By inserting runaway political correctness into sports broadcasting ESPN has turned off about half their audience base. I used to routinely watch NFL football on TV, this year I have not watched any such games and don´t miss them one bit, as there are a lot of other things to do these days.

ESPN is a sports platform and they should stick to that. We have CNN and MSNBC for liberal hate garbage.

Liberals are too stupid to see that their newpapers,Hollywood movie crash etc. is a result of their constant demagoguery of Trump.

The anger is not at white supremacy but rather at white superiority.

Were this not the case then why would there be so many special help programs for non-whites ?

It is the "Liberals" who make this case not the conservatives who actually do believe in equality......and act like it.

Looks like just a slap on the wrist from ESPN, though she well deserved to be fired by a network that fired conservative commentators for far less.

No wonder ESPN is hemorrhaging revenue and subscribers. Shut up and cover the games.

Psychologist in massive Social Security
fraud case gets 25-year sentence
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 9/23/2017 2:19:50     Post Reply
The psychologist who helped pull off the biggest Social Security fraud in U.S. history was sentenced Friday to 25 years in prison. Alfred Bradley Adkins was part of the fraud ring orchestrated by Eric C. Conn, one of the country’s most prominent disability lawyers, and David B. Daugherty, a Social Security judge who rubber-stamped at least 1,700 bogus applications for benefits. All told, the scam would have cost the government at least $600 million in fraudulent lifetime benefits, according to the government’s conservative estimate. Some $93 million were already paid out before the scam was stopped, the government said.

He dropped the ball. The Rev. Al Sharpton said on Saturday that President Trump’s crude call for NFL owners to fire protesting players completely misses the point of why they’re taking a knee in the first place. “Why don’t you, as President, address what the protest is about? Why?” Sharpton asked as he addressed a cheering crowd during his weekly rally at his National Action Network headquarters in Harlem. “The reason you won’t is because they’re protesting the criminal justice inequities in this country,” a fired up Sharpton said to roaring applause. “He’s talking about ‘fire’ like he’s still doing

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell snapped back at “divisive” comments about the league Saturday, hours after President Trump urged team owners to fire players who won’t stand for the national anthem. At a political rally Friday night in Alabama, Trump griped that players who kneel for “The Star Spangled Banner” disrespect the flag and should lose their jobs. (Snip) Goodell issued a statement via Twitter at 9:16 a.m. Saturday: “Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs

This model has taken “go big or go home” very seriously. Martina Big, born Martina Adam from Western Germany, appeared on “The Maury Show” on Wednesday to discuss her “transition” to becoming a black woman. Big, a model and flight attendant, said she’s always wanted to look like a Barbie or Pamela Anderson, and has had severe body modifications to look the part, including breast implants (she is a size 32S), a nose job, and liposuction. But this year, Big felt another change was needed: she had three tanning injections in her stomach to change her skin color. “I am now the proud

´It´s hugely problematic´: SEC under

Posted By: Ribicon- 9/22/2017 12:12:06     Post Reply
Wall Street’s top regulator came under fire on Thursday about its cybersecurity and disclosure practices after admitting hackers had breached its database of corporate announcements in 2016 and may have used it for insider trading. The breach involved Securities and Exchange Commission’s Edgar filing system, which houses market-moving information with millions of filings ranging from quarterly earnings to statements on acquisitions. The SEC said on Wednesday evening it discovered last month that cybercriminals may have used a hack detected in 2016 to make illicit trades. SEC chairman Jay Clayton gave members of Congress a “courtesy call” about the hack on Wednesday

South Korea has approved an $8m (£5.9m) aid package for North Korea, in a humanitarian gesture at odds with calls by Japan and the US for unwavering economic and diplomatic pressure on Pyongyang. South Korea’s unification ministry agreed to provide the funds, which will go towards programmes for infants and pregnant women, days after the UN security council agreed a further round of sanctions in response to the regime’s recent nuclear test. The ministry, which oversees cross-border relations, said humanitarian aid to impoverished North Korea should remain unaffected by rising political tensions on the

If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by

His pre-dawn raid was meant to intimidate Manafort, not just to collect evidence. Robert Mueller’s sprawling special-counsel investigation is playing hardball. It was not enough to get a search warrant to ransack the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, even as the former Trump campaign chairman was cooperating with congressional investigators. Mueller’s bad-asses persuaded a judge to give them permission to pick the door lock. That way, they could break into the premises in the wee hours, while Manafort and his wife were in bed sleeping. They proceeded to secure the premises — of a man they are reportedly investigating for tax and financial crimes, not gang murders and Mafia hits — by drawing their guns on the stunned couple, apparently to check their pajamas for weapons. Mueller’s probe more resembles an empire, with 17 prosecutors retained on the public dime. So . . .

Kimmel made an announcement about his son during a memorable monologue at the time and has taken up the cause ever since. Part of his goal is for every child in the U.S. to have the same access to

Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry tweeted a photo at the time of kickoff, which showed thousands of open seats. In fact, most sections in the photo have more empty seats than fans. (Tweet/Photo/Video) ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that 63,500 tickets had been sold for the game, but of course, simply selling a ticket doesn’t mean the buyer will actually show up to the game.
