What Does Barack Obama Really Think of Donald Trump? ‘He’s Nothing But a Bullsh–ter’
Post Date: 2017-05-17 11:38:55 by HomerBohn
Cool, even-keeled, no-drama Barack Obama is one of the few people in the country who hasnt publicly opined on the tweets and turmoil wrought by President Trump. And so a persistent question to those close to the former president is: What does Obama really think of the man now occupying the Oval Office? Hes nothing but a bullshter, Obama told two friends early last November, describing an election night phone call with Trump, in which the businessman suddenly professed his respect and admiration for Obamaafter years of hectoring. Speaking to PEOPLE for its new cover story on Obama and his wife Michelle adjusting to life outside ...
Black Harvard students holding a graduation of their own
Post Date: 2017-05-17 10:50:11 by misterwhite
BOSTON (AP) Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year to recognize the achievements of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked. More than 700 students and guests are registered to attend Harvard's first Black Commencement, which will take place two days before the school's traditional graduation events. It isn't meant to replace the existing ceremony, student organizers say, but rather to add something that was missing. "We really wanted an opportunity to give voice to the voiceless at Harvard," said Michael Huggins, president of the Harvard Black Graduate Student Alliance, a ...
Work Visa Lobby: Trump ‘Assured Us’ Continued ‘Access’ to Foreign Help
Post Date: 2017-05-17 10:23:09 by cranky
The largest agriculture pro-outsourcing organization says President Donald Trump has assured them that the current flow of foreign workers in the farming industry will continue unreformed. American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall told Reuters most recently that Trump promised to keep the H-2A foreign guest worker visa program, which gives hundreds of thousands of low-skill farm jobs to foreigners intact. He assured us we would have plenty of access to workers, Duvall said. Meanwhile, the White House said the meeting with Duvall and other pro-outsourcing farm organizations was very productive.

Dennis Kucinich Calls ‘High BS Quotient’ on WaPo Story, Asks Who Leaked
Post Date: 2017-05-17 08:43:37 by cranky
Former Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich, a democrat, said on Fox News Tuesday morning that there is a high BS quotient on claims made by anonymous sources in the Washington Post story that claimed President Donald Trump provided classified information to Russian officials. Kucinich told host Shannon Bream, If this information was so sensitive, then why did intel leak it to the Washington Post? Whoever leaked it undermined the alliance. The Democrat former congressman continued:

Vladimir Putin says can prove Trump did not pass Russia secrets
Post Date: 2017-05-17 08:25:54 by cranky
Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that U.S. President Donald Trump had not passed any secrets onto Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during a meeting in Washington last week and that he could prove it. Speaking at a news conference alongside Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, Putin quipped that Lavrov had not passed what he said were the non-existent secrets onto him either. Putin said Russia was ready to hand a transcript of Trump's meeting with Lavrov over to U.S. lawmakers if that would help reassure them. Two U.S. officials said on Monday that Trump had disclosed highly classified information to Lavrov about a planned Islamic State operation, plunging ...
His ‘Death is His Fault’: Cop Testifies Unarmed Man with Hands Up Forced Her to Kill Him

Tulsa, OK Tulsa Police Officer Betty Shelby fatally shot 40-year-old Terence Crutcher in September when he experienced car trouble after leaving night classes at Tulsa Community College. On Monday, Shelby testified in her own defense to attempt to justify the killing of this unarmed man and shamelessly blamed him stating she has no regrets about what happened. Shelby, who faces up to life in prison if convicted of first-degree manslaughter, blames Crutcher for his own death. Incidentally, this is not the first time this killer cop blamed the victim. In a brazenly despicable fashion, Shelby went on 60-minutes in April and explained ...
Donald Trump Has Destroyed the Credibility of the Presidency
Post Date: 2017-05-17 05:35:21 by Deckard
There is no longer any reason to trust anything the president or his surrogates say. Shortly after multiple outlets published reports last night that President Donald Trump had shared highly sensitive, classified information about an ISIS plot with Russian officials in an Oval Office meeting last week, White House officials stepped up to respond with denials. The denials were hard to believe because Trump has destroyed the credibility of his office. The most extensive denial came from national security advisor General H.R. McMaster. "The story that came out tonight, as reported, is false," he said. "At no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed and no ...

I heard tell some teen died of a caffeine overdose back east someplace after downing a cappuccino, a diet Mountain Dew, and an energy drink. One would imagine in rapid-fire order. Of course, there are immediate calls for something to be done. There is something to be done. Its called getting your head out of your dufflebag. Look, yes, there is an LD-50 for caffeine. Its something like 100 cups of coffee. But if you dont do your own due diligence on the stuff you put into your own body, how on earth can the government convince you to do so? You can drink too much water and die, too. It actually happened recently as part of a radio show contest that ...

The States Are Revolting Against the War on Drugs
Post Date: 2017-05-17 05:13:52 by Deckard
On the same day that Attorney General Jeff sessions announced that he would attempt to revamp the war on drugs, it came to my attention that potentially more important events regarding the war on drugs were taking place in Vermont, the freedom and unity state. It would seem that the state legislature in Vermont has voted to eliminate the war on marijuana in the state for recreational use. This is important, critically so, because all of the efforts to legalize recreational marijuana so far have been done by the processes of voter-sponsored ballot initiatives and referendums. In other words, marijuana legalization is now taking place in at least one state legislature, not just ...

Former FBI Director James Comey associates are leaking more information about his conversations with President Donald Trump, asserting that the president asked Comey to let his former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn go. I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go, Trump told Comey, according to parts of the memo read to the New York Times. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go. At the White House Tuesday afternoon, White House aides denied the story. This is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the president and Mr. Comey, they said, assuring reporters that Trump never asked Comey to ...

(Reuters) - A Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman on Tuesday advised that people don't read American newspapers, in response to U.S. media reports that President Donald Trump had disclosed classified intelligence at a meeting with Russian officials. The spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, said she had received dozens of messages asking about the reports, which have been denied by the White House. "Guys, have you been reading American newspapers again?" she wrote on her Facebook page. "You shouldn't read them. You can put them to various uses, but you shouldn't read them. Lately it's become not only harmful, but dangerous too." (Reporting by Katya Golubkova; ...
Trump Tax Plan Eyes Cut to Deduction for High-Tax States
Post Date: 2017-05-16 11:57:44 by Tooconservative
President Donald Trumps tax plan, a broad and general plan that would make supply-siders such as Ronald Reagan and Jack Kemp very happy, could be held up by a number of details that are making some Republicans nervous. One is the elimination of an income-tax deduction for high-tax states such as New York and California. Former President Ronald Reagan targeted that deduction in the 1980s the last time significant tax reform was passed but a number of influential big-state Republicans helped kill the idea. Tax reform passed anyway, first with the Kemp-Roth tax-cut package, in 1981, and then the Tax Reform Act, in 1986. They were massive reforms, and no major fix for ...
K-12: Knowledge Containment Protocols
Post Date: 2017-05-16 11:44:43 by Tooconservative
Schools have always been devoted to passing knowledge forward to the next generation. Not now. The Education Establishment treats knowledge as if it were a toxic spill that must be kept away from students. Board up the windows; tape the doors; wrap the buildings in three-mil. plastic. This might sound comical or far-fetched. But I assure you that the Progressives in charge of our schools are methodical about using any pretext to minimize contamination by knowledge. Everyone should wonder why. In the beginning of the Progressive era, the attack on knowledge was straightforward. The basic claim was, who needs it? John Dewey sneeringly ...

Beaver, PA For many years we, at The Free Thought Project, have published story after story of small-town police departments and officers allegedly terrorizing its residents with threats of being tasered, beatings, head-stomping, and arm breaking arrests at the hands of the very people who are sworn to protect and serve them. Unleashing attack dogs on compliant citizens is also, unfortunately, a very real part of that list. Beaver, Pennsylvania has a population of just over 4,000, with one of its residents being James Cicco (34).

Around Spice, everyone can hear you scream. As the Trump White House continues to endure yet another evening in crisis mode, this perhaps its darkest night of the soul yet, reporters assigned to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue say tensions are running high. Following the briefest of briefings in which National Security Adviser H.R.

One America News reporter Trey Yingst first spotted Press Secretary Sean ...

If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out in America thanks to the phony ex-president B. Hussein Obama. The ex-president said he was going to stay involved through community organizing and speak out on the issues and that appears to be one post-administration promise he intends to keep. He has moved many of his administration's top dogs over to an organization called Organizing for Action (OFA). OFA is behind the strategic and tactical implementation of the resistance we are seeing across America, and politically active courts ...
Pat Buchanan: Comey & The Saturday Night Massacre
Post Date: 2017-05-16 00:17:55 by nativist nationalist
History repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce, said Marx. On publication day of my memoir of Richard Nixons White House, President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. Instantly, the media cried Nixonian, comparing it to the 1973 Saturday Night Massacre. Yet, the differences are stark. The resignations of Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General Bill Ruckelshaus and the firing of Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox came in the middle of an East-West crisis. On Oct. 6, 1973, the high holy day of Yom Kippur, in a surprise attack, Egyptian troops crossed the Suez Canal and breached Israels Bar Lev Line. Syria attacked on the Golan ...
