On King day, Trump mentioned
as much as civil rights leader

ATLANTA — They had gathered to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr., but many of those who delivered speeches on the national holiday created to honor the slain civil rights leaders focused their remarks on another man: President Donald Trump. (Snip) Trump has denied saying "anything derogatory" about Haitians, and said he did not use the vulgar language that has been reported. And his weekly address to the nation, released Monday, was dedicated to King. "Dr. King´s dream is our dream, it is the American dream, it´s the promise stitched into the fabric of our nation, etched into the hearts of

MLK is nothing but a poster boy, a projection of any and everything of the left´s agenda. We are told yesterday that MLK would have been for climate change. It´s all false. I am tired of people veiling their agendas, rather than standing for them and persuading, based on rational argument, but I understand why they don´t, because they know their positions would not withstand critical review. In short, the left has got nothing, no rationality, only emotion to cover their absurdities.

As an evil, racist, straight, Christian white man, I can truly admire Dr. King and his struggle, courage, and accomplishments.

But I detest the current members of the "civil rights" industry who have claimed Dr. King´s legacy as their own, and shamelessly use it to enrich and empower themselves and force wedges of racial animosity into our society.

The usual race pimps showed up yet again, the old phony revrums spouting their schtick. There was no mention of Dr. Alveda King in the article, oh well, can´t muddle ideology with truth now can we?

Doctor in badly botched abortion
is tried for manslaughter
Associated Press, by Verena Dobnik    Original Article

A doctor who performed a badly botched abortion that caused a patient to bleed to death was characterized by prosecutors on Tuesday as careless, greedy and someone who operated far outside the medical norm. A jury in Queens heard closing arguments in the case against Dr. Robert Rho, who was charged with manslaughter in the 2016 death of Jamie Lee Morales. The criminal prosecution of doctors over medical errors is rare, but Assistant District Attorney Brad Leventhal said Rho´s mistakes went beyond civil malpractice. During the operation, Rho severed Morales´ uterine aorta, ripped her cervix and pierced her uterine wall. Profuse

Bowing to pressure from African-American activists, Starbucks excluded the Anti-Defamation League from an upcoming daylong anti-bias training session. The ADL, whose mission is to fight anti-Semitism, will play an advisory role in the company´s long-term efforts to combat discrimination, Jaime Riley, a Starbucks spokeswoman, told POLITICO Monday.

San Francisco — Though known for its compassion to the needy, San Francisco may have hit peak saturation with tent camps, stinky urine and trash littering the streets, and the new interim mayor has vowed to do something about it. (Snip) "The trash, our homeless, the needles, the drug abuse on our streets, I´ve seen it all in our city and it´s gotten to the point where we need to really change course," Farrell said in an interview. "We´ve gone away from just being compassionate to enabling street behavior and that, in my opinion, is a shift that´s unacceptable." It's not just the mayor who's fed up.

TIJUANA, Mexico — About 200 people in a caravan of Central American asylum seekers waited on the Mexican border with San Diego for a second straight day on Monday to turn themselves in to U.S. border inspectors, who said the nation’s busiest crossing facility did not have enough space to accommodate them. After a monthlong journey across Mexico under the Trump administration’s watchful eye, the asylum seekers faced an unexpected twist Sunday when U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said San Diego’s San Ysidro border crossing facility had “reached capacity.” The agency said in a statement on Monday

Black women face “high levels of anxiety” about their hair more often than white women, according to a 2016 “Good Hair” study by the Perception Institute. Hair texture, density and thickness, among other things, are common topics of discussion among women of color. There are charts that determine how curly or coarse one’s hair is and dedicated aisles in stores now that contain “ethnic” hair products. But these products are not found in hotels. While few consider this among the major social issues of our time, it has emerged as a topic of some debate thanks to a tweet last

MANCHESTER, N.H. - Enthusiasm for the Democratic Party is waning among millennials as its candidates head into the crucial midterm congressional elections, according to the Reuters/Ipsos national opinion poll. The online survey of more than 16,000 registered voters ages 18 to 34 shows their support for Democrats over Republicans for Congress slipped by about 9 percentage points over the past two years, to 46 percent overall. And they increasingly say the Republican Party is a better steward of the economy. Although nearly two of three young voters polled said they do not like Republican President Donald Trump, their distaste for him

SAN YSIDRO PORT OF ENTRY - Eight women and children from a caravan of hundreds of Central American migrants have sought asylum in the United States after officials allowed them entry from Mexico, fueling hope among their companions who remain camped outside the border crossing. Gathering people along the way, the caravan set off a month ago on a 2,000 mile trek across Mexico to the U.S. border, drawing attention from the U.S. media after President Donald Trump took to Twitter to demand such groups not be granted entry and urging for stronger immigration laws.

The vaunted “echo chamber” that President Barack Obama’s aide Ben Rhodes created to sell the Iran deal was quiet on Monday, in the aftermath of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s revelations of new intelligence proving that Iran had lied to the world about its nuclear weapons program. Netanyahu presented a trove of over 100,000 files, both paper and electronic, that he said Israel had obtained from a “vault” where Iran had stored an archive of its nuclear research. The files included diagrams of nuclear detonation devices, nuclear warhead designs, and plans for nuclear testing sites, among other incriminating information.
