Newly victorious Clinton: Donald Trump is a ‘demagogue’

‘It’s classic behavior by a demagogue,’ she said in an telephone interview with The Associated Press. ‘We’ve seen it many, many places and times in the world, and that’s why I think it’s so dangerous.’

‘I do not believe his views or his rhetoric will find that favorable an audience in the general electorate, because I think that — as I said last week in San Diego — what he’s already said, both words and deeds, disqualifies him from being president,’ she told CBS.

SCHOOL BUSBlack preschool kids get suspended much more frequently than white preschool kids, U.S. survey says

Across all grades, 2.8 million students were suspended once or more. Black students were nearly four times as likely to be suspended and almost twice as likely to be expelled as white students. Students with disabilities were also twice as likely to be suspended as general education students.

The disparity “tears at the moral fabric of the nation,” said U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King Jr. “We will not compromise away the civil right of all students to an excellent education.”

The State Department is committed to meeting President Obama’s goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian refugees into the United States this fiscal year, and expects the numbers to “increase exponentially” over the summer, a spokesman said Tuesday.

The State Department set up a special refugee “resettlement surge center” in Amman, Jordan in February, and officials said processing times had been significantly reduced from approximately 18-24 months to just three months.

fireMuslim migrants BURN DOWN conference center because they didn’t get a wake up call for Ramadan

According to Breitbart, some 160 migrants were resident at hall 18 of the centre, which has been plagued by racial violence in the past between Arab residents and a minority of Afghans aligned with security staff of Iranian descent running the facility.

It is alleged that the Iranian security, paid for by German taxpayers, deliberately chose not to wake up Arabs up in time for their Ramadan breakfast.

girl on phoneUniversity of Oklahoma to launch 24/7/365 multilingual bias complaint hotline

The contract with the Los Angeles-based Greenwood Hall states its employees will be available “24/7/365 via phone, text or web chat” for calls and that the service will be “multilingual.” The company will act as a middle man of sorts, keep a record of all complaints, and direct callers to already established campus resources for further help.

The system is described in the contract as a “safe place” for students, employees and other members of a campus community to report bias incidents and other problems — such as bullying, hazing, violence, discrimination and assault — and obtain referrals to resources. The company is not a 9-1-1 dispatch nor does it offer mental health counseling, its contract states.

valogoVA Wants to Provide Transgender Surgeries

Sex reassignment surgeries might soon be covered by the Department of Veterans Affairs. The VA has proposed lifting its ban on the medical procedures, which treat a condition called gender dysphoria and allow a man to live as a woman or vice versa.

The department called it a serious medical condition with severe consequences for patients if treatment is not provided. Current VA rules prohibit the department from covering or performing any surgical procedures considered to be gender alterations.

AP reminds employees to be vigilant after backlash from Sanders supporters

The Associated Press on Tuesday advised staffers to “practice situational awareness” at their bureaus and offices in the wake of social media pushback from supporters of Bernie Sanders who were angered by its decision to call the Democratic nomination for Hillary Clinton.

Danny Spriggs, the AP’s vice president for global security, notified employees that their colleagues were receiving incensed phone calls, emails and social media messages from Sanders backers but noted that the news cooperative hadn’t “received any specific security threats.”

Washington-Cumming-640x480White House Emailed Pro-Immigration Talking Points to Celebrity Influencers

trump-victory-speechTRUMP Announces MAJOR SPEECH on Clinton Corruption and Scandal Next Week

“The Clinton’s have turned the politics of personal enrichment into an art form for themselves. They’ve made hundreds of millions of dollars selling access, selling favors, selling government contracts. And I mean hundreds of millions of dollars… I am going to give a major speech probably Monday of next week. And we are going to be discussing all of the things that have taken place with the Clintons. I think you’re going to find it very informative and very, very interesting. I wonder if the press will want to attend?”

isis missileIslamic State Nuclear Attack In Europe A ‘Real Threat’, Say Analysts

The threat of a terrorist attack using nuclear material is the highest since the end of the Cold War, with Isis actively trying to acquire weapons of mass destruction, according to a leading international think-tank on proliferation.

“Isis has already carried out numerous chemical weapons attacks in Syria; we know it wants to go further by carrying out a nuclear attack in the heart of Europe. This, combined with poor levels of security at a host of nuclear research centres in the former Soviet Union mean the threat of a possible ‘dirty-bomb’ attack on a Western capital is high,” said Moshe Kantor, the president of the International Luxembourg Forum.

2016_05_06-ISIS-cybersecurity-Fear-ILL_homepage-3-22737703539New ISIS ‘Kill’ List Claims To Target Thousands Of Americans

A pro-ISIS “hacking” group calling itself the United Cyber Caliphate distributed its latest “kill” list this week. The group claims the list includes names, addresses, and email addresses belonging to 8,318 people, making it one of the longest target lists ISIS-affiliated groups have distributed.

In a post Vocativ uncovered on the messaging app Telegram that was written in both English and Arabic, the United Cyber Caliphate called on its supporters to “follow” those listed and “kill them strongly to take revenge for Muslims.”

English_Language_Privilege_--_Classist_to_Label_What_Is_Correct_National_Review_-_2016-06-08_20.52.34SJW Internet: Saying There Is a ‘Correct’ Form of English Is ‘Classist’

“We are told that there is one correct form of English, and deviating from grammar and pronunciation rules associates us with the working class,” Alex-Quan Pham, a self-identified “Vietnamese femme” who prefers the pronoun “they,” writes in a piece for Everyday Feminism titled “3 Ways Language Oppression Harms Us (And How We Can Heal).” “Not only is this classist, but it fortifies the idea that English has a ‘proper’ form — even though every variation of English has been constructed.”

    Its ramadan ding dong day at the Toronto Star website. Yes, celebrate islam with the Star today. View the pictures of ramadan around the world, and then read the heart warming story on how all Canadians should read the koran. Yes, the Star wants all of us to study the holy book of islam. And the Star thinks Wynne’s global warming scam is wonderful. Sunny Ways in downtown Toronto.

      The Star would seem somewhat less insincere if they started stoning to death a few of their more prominent practitioners of adultery along with fans of other koran unfriendly recreational activities.

    “I think maybe just that thirteen danish plate this morning and a half litre mug of Kopi Luwak, black, no sugar. It’s called the post breakfast energetic napping diet plan.

    Yes, it’s new. I have my own artificial sweetener, if needed.”

    Terrible news this morning. CTV is reporting that the annual gay rodeo in Alberta has been cancelled without explanation. Perhaps Wynne can move it to Toronto. She can even give them a couple of billion dollars to operate it.

    About this morning’s breakfast plate photo. I have a question. The garish colours and crowded plate tells me this is a Mexican resort. Would I be correct? 😉

  • Brett_McS

    I am, frankly, amazed that a Republican leader, or at least a prominent Republican, has not to this point come out and said publicly and repeatedly that the Clintons are crooks and dare them to sue.

    • Norman_In_New_York

      Only Trump has done so while the party leadership has wimped out.

    I was going to play some golf at Base Borden today, but I think I will wait until Friday. Feminist Trudeau is supposed to be showing up at the base today for one of his many selfie tours.

    Perhaps the UK should just presume that Merkel would accept 5,000 expelled Muslims each and every week until they are all gone. They won’t be “stateless.”
