Lawyers in DNC Class-Action Suit ‘Perplexed’ by Media Blackout

The attorneys for 2016 supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) who are suing Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and the Democratic National Committee for fraud say they are “perplexed” as to why the case has gotten so little coverage in the media.

“This seems like an important case, as important as you can get,” attorney Cullin O’Brien told LifeZette on Tuesday.

Starbucks Stock Suffers Biggest Plunge In Two Years

It’s been a rough year for coffee shop giant, Starbucks, who just saw its stock price plummet over eight percent.

In January, as Breitbart reports, then-CEO Howard Schultz announced the company would be hiring 10,000 Muslim refugees in response to President Trump’s temporary immigration ban.

The announcement sparked a firestorm of criticism and calls for a national boycott.

Not so hot: Al Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Sequel’ meets with skepticism even from left

Nobody is more excited about Friday’s release of Al Gore’s sequel to “An Inconvenient Truth” than climate skeptic Marc Morano, which comes as an ill wind for the movement to stop global warming, not to mention Mr. Gore.

For months, Mr. Morano and his team have tracked the Democrat at advance screenings of “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” ambushing him with stunts such as asking him about his prediction that without drastic measures, the planet would reach a “point of no return” in a decade.

Canadian ‘Heavy-Hitters’ Rally The World To Tackle Refugee Crisis

Prospects seem grim for the world’s 22 million refugees.

The United States and Europe are slamming doors. Kenya is forcing Somalis in Dadaab, the world’s largest refugee camp, to go home — even if it’s not safe to return. Uganda is desperate for funding to feed almost one million Sudanese who have flooded across its border.

The world is aware of the problem. What it lacks is solutions and the consensus to act on them. That’s where Canada comes in. With little media fanfare, the World Refugee Council held its first meeting last week in Geneva. Created by a group of Canadians and chaired by one of the country’s political heavyweights, former cabinet minister and statesman Lloyd Axworthy, the group is on the hunt for innovative solutions to the global refugee crisis.

Though inspired by a UN initiative, Canada is running the show outside of the international body.

The Media’s Shameful Refusal To Report On Putin’s Ties To The American Left

Since last November, Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media have obsessively shifted blame for their improbable election loss to Russia, pointing to Russia’s suspected role in leaking hacked Democratic National Committee emails to Wikileaks.

While the delightful irony of the Left morphing into anti-Russia hawks shouldn’t escape those of us who spent decades resisting appeasement of the Soviet Union, we shouldn’t outright dismiss Russia’s interest in influencing U.S. policy, either. Of course, had Russia not been implicated in the DNC hacks, the American Left would have continued its neo-appeasement policy, best exemplified by President Obama’s 2012 hot mic moment when he instructed outgoing president Dmitry Medvedev to relay to incoming President Putin that Obama would have “more flexibility” after his reelection.
