FARMINGDALE - It was a risk for the owners of Woody´s Roadside Tavern in Farmingdale to turn off the televisions on Sunday to protest the National Football League and honor veterans instead. The risk proved fruitful. (Photos) As word spread that Woody´s was raising money for the Special Forces Association Chapter 19 and military families while holding an NFL blackout, hundreds of veterans and supporters filled the tavern. (Photo) They packed the bar, restaurant and outdoor deck. They sang the national anthem in unison. Waiters ran out of glasses within an hour of the fundraiser starting. "You´ll have to go

WASHINGTON, DC – President Donald Trump’s decision to keep the United States in the Iran nuclear deal on Friday was coupled with a warning to his European allies: “Fix the deal’s disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw.” “Despite my strong inclination, I have not yet withdrawn the United States from the Iran nuclear deal. Instead, I have outlined two possible paths forward: either fix the deal’s disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw,” Trump said in a statement. He added: I am waiving the application of certain nuclear sanctions, but only in order to secure our European
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Friday that he scolded President Donald Trump over alleged remarks that he made about "s***hole" countries on Thursday — which is ironic considering Graham made a similar statement in 2013 about Latin American nations.During a 2013 Senate panel meeting, Graham referred to Mexico and other countries that are flooding the United States with illegal aliens as “hellholes.”“I don’t know how many security people we have along the Canadian border — I doubt it’s 21,000,” Graham said. “Why are we okay up there and not okay to the south?”“The tale of two borders,” Graham continued.

Turnabout is fair play when it comes to accusations of election meddling. A Russian official on Saturday denounced US plans to punish Russia for alleged interference in the 2016 election — by saying the sanctions are an attempt to interfere with Russia’s presidential vote in March. “We see this as yet another attempt to influence our internal situation, especially ahead of the presidential election,” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said.Washington is expected to apply the new sanctions to Russia in February.Russian President Vladimir Putin is expected to easily win a fourth term in the March 18 vote.In Washington, special counsel

Kentucky received the green light Friday to require many of its Medicaid recipients to work in order to receive coverage.The Bluegrass State thus becomes the first state to act on the Trump administration’s unprecedented change that could affect millions of low-income people receiving benefits. Under the new rule, adults age 19 to 64 must complete 80 hours of "community engagement" per month to keep their care. That includes working a job, going to school, taking a job-training course or volunteering."There is dignity associated with earning the value of something that you receive," Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin said. "The vast majority
Senator Durbin is saying that Trump called third countries s-holes. (The media and Democrats are saying he is racist but how is it racist to call backward, corrupt countries what they literally are?) Senator Cotton and Senator Perdue were also in the room and said they didn´t hear those words but that doesn´t fit the narrative so the media ignores them.The goal every day is to destroy Trump and his agenda so the media will have a new story after Durbin. Something they don´t want to report on is the economy growing so fast and the tax cuts trickling down
U-Haul named Texas the nation’s number one growth state for 2017, marking the second consecutive year the Lone Star State nabbed the top spot in the truck rental company’s annual migration trends report which analyzes domestic relocation patterns.According to U-Haul, the number of incoming truck rentals accounted for 50.3 percent of all one-way traffic into Texas last year. The report noted that year-over-year arrivals of one-way truck rentals into the state only rose by one percent while departures climbed three percent compared to 2016’s data. U-Haul attributed some of 2017’s outbound flow to Hurricane Harvey, which pounded the Houston area
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said Friday she will not attend President Trump’s first State of the Union address following his vulgar remarks aimed at Haiti, El Salvador and African nations. “Why would I take my time to go and sit and listen to a liar?” Waters said on MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes.” “Someone who lies in the face of facts, someone who can change their tune day in and day out. What does he have to say that I would be interested in?" (Snip) Waters is the third Democratic lawmaker to announce they won’t attend Trump’s address, which

And I can tell you this is all faux rage. It is faux anger. It is

A Civil Defense employee is set to be retrained after a shocking blunder on Saturday morning, when a mistaken alert warning of an inbound ballistic missile sent thousands fleeing for shelter. The false alarm was caused by a Hawaii Emergency Management Agency employee who ´pushed the wrong buttons´ during an internal drill timed to coincide with a shift handover at 8.07am.

People familiar with the matter told the Wall Street Journal that Trump’s longtime lawyer Michael Cohen arranged a payment to Stephanie Clifford in October 2016 during negotiations of a nondisclosure agreement.

Lots of the news from sub-Saharan Africa is about war, famine, poverty or political upheaval. So it’s understandable if many Americans think most Africans who immigrate to the United States are poorly educated and desperate. Research tells another story. While many are refugees, large numbers are beneficiaries of the diversity-visa program aimed at boosting immigration from underrepresented nations. And on average, African immigrants are better educated than people born in the U.S. or the immigrant population as a whole.
