California wildfires

New York Post, by Yaron Steinbuch

Original Article

Mets legend Tom Seaver escaped a really tight spot – amid the California wildfires. “Tom Terrific” and his wife, Nancy, fled from their Napa Valley home as flames bore down on their wine country property, The Mercury News reported. The couple fled from Calistoga at 4 a.m. Wednesday and reunited with relatives in South Lake Tahoe later in the day, along with their six cats, five dogs and a parrot, his daughter Anne Seaver said. “We’re trying to stay hopeful,” she told the paper. “It’s a very morbid situation.” The couple were among tens of thousands displaced by the deadly

Two Million Foreigners To
Get Work Permits in 2017
Breitbart Big Government, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 10/16/2017 10:09:18     Post Reply
The number of foreign workers getting work permits for U.S. jobs will hit 2 million this year, partly because President Donald Trump’s deputies have reduced only a few of President Barack Obama’s foreign-worker programs and policies. Roughly 2 million foreigners will get temporary work permits, dubbed “Employment Authorization Documents,” or EADS, during 2017, despite administration efforts to cut back some of the many business-backed foreign-worker programs, according to two sets of data released by the Department of Homeland Security. “This is almost entirely outside of our legal immigration and legal guest-worker system — these are additional workers,” said Jessica Vaughan,

A British school has changed its policies to allow biological boys to sleep in the girls’ dorms, wear skirts, and use gender neutral pronouns and girl names. The new policies at Gordon’s School in Woking, England, lets both boys and girls use whichever bathrooms the individual feels comfortable using and dress however they see fit, according to the Times on Sunday. The school policy allows boys to wear jewelry, makeup, and sport long hair. “Parents of pupils were surprised by how open-minded we have been. Most schools are having these issues,” said Rob Pavis, the deputy head of the school. Students

CBS Losing Money. Guess Why.

Gee, any guesses why CBS’ third-quarter advertising declined? If you said NFL football tanking with the public, you get the blue ribbon. According to Credit Suisse, the network’s declining NFL television ratings will send CBS earnings lower. Credit Suisse analyst Omar Sheikh stated: We expect third-quarter network advertising to decline 3 percent (previously +1 percent), driven by soft ratings for both the summer schedule and for the start of the NFL season. With only one of the three content licensing deals we expected for the second half announced in third quarter, we also expect content licensing revenue growth to be

Producers Guild Votes Unanimously
to Expel Harvey Weinstein
Washington Free Beacon, by Cameron Cawthorne    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 10/16/2017 7:13:47     Post Reply
The Producers Guild of America on Monday moved to expel Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein from its ranks after dozens of women accused him of sexual harassment and abuse dating back nearly three decades. The group´s board voted unanimously at a meeting to "institute termination proceedings" against Weinstein, which will give him an opportunity to respond before the guild makes its official decision on Nov. 6, according to CNN. The PGA´s action follows a similar vote by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences board on Saturday, and the suspension of Weinstein´s membership in its British academy counterpart, or BAFTA.

Surprising Press Conference With President
Trump and Senator Mitch McConnell…
Conservative Tree House, by Sundance    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 10/16/2017 6:08:54     Post Reply
Earlier today President Trump surprised the media with a joint Rose Garden press conference with President Trump and Senate Leader Mitch McConnell. The combative media were in full frenzied form as they peppered their Presidential Nemesis with argumentative questions for 40 minutes. As customary, President Trump effortlessly swatted away the media scuds while making his podium guest, McConnell, transparently nervous and riddled with anxiety. Amid the glorious sunlight – the turtle head couldn’t retract into his defensive shell. In essence it was, yet again, a MAGAnificent presser: (Video/Photo) Rose Garden – 1:47 P.M. EDT -THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much.

Alleging U.S. “rape culture” caused the Hollywood sex abuse scandal, UK news site the Independent has claimed that only Islam can provide the answer to preventing violence against women. “Harvey Weinstein is just another case of a powerful man abusing women because we live in a society that lets him get away with it, but we can change that,” writes U.S-based civil rights lawyer Qasim Rashid in a piece for the former newspaper, now a website, the independence of which has been called into question after a key stake was bought by Saudi investor Sultan Muhammad Abuljadayel.

Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) said in a radio interview on Sunday that Democrats can lose to President Donald Trump in 2020 if they "overdo it" by becoming too liberal. Durbin was asked on a local Chicago radio program about comments from Rep. Cheri Bustos (D., Ill.), who warned fellow Democrats that Trump would be reelected if the party becomes too liberal. CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski was first to report on Durbin´s comments. (Audio) "We need to be balanced," Durbin said on "Connected to Chicago" on WLS-AM. "She´s right about that.

Eight people were killed, including a 64-year-old woman who was struck by a stray bullet, and at least 11 other people were wounded in shootings across Chicago since Friday evening.

Trevillion, a “beloved” math teacher at Chicago Waldorf School, was standing on the sidewalk near her home in the 6900 block of North Glenwood when shots were fired from a dark-colored SUV.

If the NFL thought Americans would ease the backlash against the league — they were sadly mistaken. Photos of empty stadiums from around the league show how dire a situation kneelers have spurred.

Hillary & Harvey: Birds of a feather...

Harvey Weinstein has been exposed in the media as the sexual predator he is, and Hillary Clinton has been exposed as the craven money grubber she is; money over morality is the mantra she lives by. These people, the DC and Hollywood elite, live by different rules, rules under which faith, hope and love have no place, no place at all. They are about two things and two things only: power and money. And the two species feed off each other. The entertainment industry wants and craves the deference of Democrat elites. The DC Democrat establishment relies on the financial

How to survive a nuclear

You´ll have about 10 minutes between finding out a nuclear bomb is heading for Washington on a ballistic missile and the moment it explodes over the city. At least that´s the best guess from experts. And that´s really a best-case scenario if the bomb comes from a North Korean missile. If it´s a Russian or Chinese missile carrying a nuclear bomb? Even less. Most Washingtonians have spent at least a little time over the past few weeks wondering what´s going to happen as Kim Jong Un and President Trump rattle sabers on Twitter and in the press.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich refused to rule out a run for president in 2020 as a Republican primary challenger to President Trump. When asked by Chuck Todd — host of NBC´s "Meet The Press" — if he was going to run in 2020 against Trump, Kasich demurred. "I don´t know what I´m going to do tomorrow," he said. "I will tell you this — the other day, my wife said to me one morning, ´You know, John, I wish you were the president.´ That´s how I knew the country was in trouble."

Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so. "I´m a middle-class girl from the middle of the country, and so I always struggled with like, OK, so what´s my story. And it suddenly dawned on me that

Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended NFL players who knelt during the national anthem, saying kneeling is a “reverent” position that is not against “our anthem or our flag.” The former Democratic presidential candidate, who was at the Southbank Centre´s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to

New York activist Tamika Mallory says she was booted from an American Airlines flight in Miami after a pilot inserted himself into a dispute over her seat assignment. Mallory, a co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington, was traveling home to New York when the pilot followed her to scold her over an argument she had with a gate agent. He then had her summoned from her seat and kicked off the flight, she told the Daily News. “It definitely was white male aggression. I was singled out, I was disrespected, and he was trying to intimidate me. I was

Jimmy Kimmel says he’s laid off the Harvey Weinstein jokes because he’s not the “moral conscience of America” (there’s also a video of him asking young women to guess what’s in his crotch. And suggesting they feel it and put their mouths on it).Famously, NBC is playing shy about the scandal, having refused to broadcast the detailed exposé by Ronan Farrow, who took it to the New Yorker which did publish it. The story has laid bare the hypocrisy of the media giants, Democratic biggies, and the Hollywood virtue signalers.

A worker at a Texas fast-food restaurant was fired after she refused to serve two police officers, the company said Saturday. In a lengthy post on the Denison Police Department´s Facebook page, Chief Jay Burch alleged the officers were cursed at by the employee and that the restaurant manager’s only response was “I don’t get into politics.” “If a business does not want police officers as customers, just let us know,” Burch wrote. “There’s no need to curse us and make a scene, just let us know you don’t want us there and we’ll go somewhere else.” He added, "Now going

Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance under the collective bargaining agreement for collusion against NFL team owners, reports Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report. Kaepernick has hired high-profile attorney Mark Geragos and is preparing to release a statement about his grievance soon, added Freeman. The free-agent quarterback has remained unemployed since his release by the San Francisco 49ers in March and has garnered little interest from teams around the league. This has caused some to suggest he´s being blackballed for his national anthem protests during the 2016 season. Kaepernick appeared in 12 games for 49ers in 2016, throwing for 2,241 yards with

The Clinton Foundation told DailyMail.com it will not return as much as $250,000 in donations from Harvey Weinstein, saying on Sunday the money had already been spent on the organization’s programs and used for charitable purposes. The foundation’s decision comes as politicians and philanthropic groups grapple with whether to return donations they have received from Weinstein, after numerous women stepped forward this month to accuse the movie mogul of sexual assault, harassment and rape. Over a dozen Democratic politicians have said they will give back or donate Weinstein’s campaign contributions to charity. The Clinton Foundation faced questions about Weinstein’s funding after Hillary Clinton
