“Emergency” protests were held Friday in at least a dozen US cities. They were largely organized on social media by the Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER) Coalition, which called the US assertion that the Syrian government carried out attacks on its own people “unsubstantiated” and demanded an independent investigation.
In the lawsuit filed in King County Superior Court, a 46-year-old man, identified only by the initials, D.H., said Murray “raped and molested him” over several years, beginning in 1986 – when he was 15 and addicted to crack cocaine, and when Murray was in his early 30s.
Almost four months after her stunning defeat, Hillary Clinton on Thursday primarily blamed her loss to President Donald Trump on four factors that were beyond her control.
The former Democratic presidential candidate cited Russian meddling in the election, FBI Director James Comey’s involvement toward the end of the race, WikiLeaks theft of emails from her campaign chairman, and misogyny.
Official-looking signs were set up at the city limits on Tuesday, boasting about the town’s new status as an ‘OFFICIAL SANCTUARY CITY’. But drivers who looked closer saw that not all was as it seemed.
“I’m not allowed to promote anything that I’m involved in. So I just want to have the legal disclosure, you’ve asked me the question, and I am not promoting any product,” Mnuchin said on Friday. “But you should send all your kids to Lego Batman.”
Everyone was left laughing. Everyone, that is, execept Democratic Senator Ron Wyden.
Furious that Mnuchin would even dare to joke about his Hollywood connections in this terrifying, Trumpian climate of corruption, Wyden went immediately to the Office of Government Ethics, begging the director to launch a full investigation into whether Mnuchin was engaging in a conflict of interest with his off-the-cuff reference.
“[T]hey are changing the rules before your very eyes,” Pirro argued. “This is bigger than a travel ban, bigger than a debate question — the left is changing black letter law and journalistic standards and the constitution in order to satisfy their agenda. They are simply intolerant of opinions that differ from theirs.”
Canada’s foreign affairs minister said on Monday that her country should be prepared for Russia to try to destabilize its political system, saying it would be similar to its efforts in the United States.
Chrystia Freeland, who is a critic of Russia and is barred from entering that country, was asked whether Russia had engaged in a smear campaign against her after negative articles appeared in pro-Russian media about her Ukrainian grandfather.
“It is public knowledge that there have been efforts, as U.S. intelligence forces have said, by Russia to destabilize the U.S. political system,” Freeland told reporters in Parliament.
“I think that Canadians and, indeed, other Western countries should be prepared for similar efforts to be directed at us.”
Many regard Putin as a leader for the times by virtue of the fact that he is neither Obama nor Trudeau, completely ignoring everything Putin is and what contemporary Russians think and why.
However, this paranoia set against Putin et al is misplaced. This irrational phobia boils down to frothing of the mouth of a losing faction, not sensible remove of an autocrat’s whims.
If Putin wanted to move on the Canadian Arctic – let’s say – it’s not like Freeland or Trudeau would stop him.
A senior aide to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will carry the Liberal banner in a federal byelection next month.
The Liberal party says Mary Ng beat out two challengers Saturday in a nomination battle in the Toronto-area riding of Markham-Thornhill.
Ng worked in the Prime Minister’s Office as his director of appointments.
Ng, who came to Canada from Hong Kong with her family, does not live in the riding but grew up in nearby north Toronto.
“My goal is to spend the next several weeks of the by-election working hard to earn the support of voters to become the next Member of Parliament for this important riding,” Ng said in a statement.
The nomination battle was mired in controversy in the past week when another contender pulled out of the race saying it was set up to favour Ng.
Juanita Nathan was unhappy that the party set an early cutoff date to register new members, saying more than 2,000 people she signed up were ineligible to vote in Saturday’s nomination.
The Prince of Wales has said the lessons of the Holocaust are in danger of being forgotten, in remarks which have been linked by some to Donald Trump’s ban on Syrian refugees entering the US.
Forgotten? They’re being purposely ignored by idiot appeasers like Charles.
Democrats have likely forgotten that they cheered and gave President Bill Clinton a STANDING OVATION for his idea to build a wall and deport criminal illegals.
Legal Insurrection founder and publisher and Cornell University Law Professor William Jacobson voiced his anger and astonishment at the channel’s removal. “It’s very frustrating, it’s very scary, to have 8 years of content removed without a chance to defend yourself,” he told FoxNews.com.
The mainstream media is in full meltdown mode after President-elect Donald Trump pushed back against CNN and BuzzFeed for pushing a story based on a leaked “dossier” of unverified and scurrilous allegations.
Trump pushed back during a press conference on Wednesday in which he refused to allow CNN to ask a question and called the network “fake news”.
However, while the media is lamenting the fact that Trump is defending himself against CNN and other left-wing news outlets, they were largely silent as President Barack Obama routinely attacked Fox News for 8 years.
One day in late November, an earth and environmental science professor named Nathan Phillips visited Breitbart News for the first time. Mr. Phillips had heard about the hateful headlines on the site — like “Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy” — and wondered what kind of companies would support such messages with their ad dollars. When he clicked on the site, he was shocked to discover ads for universities, including one for the graduate school where he’d received his own degree — Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment. “That was a punch in the stomach,” he said.
The 2013 and 2009 inauguration-edition SmartTrip cards both featured a smiling image of President Barack Obama.
In an emailed statement to WTOP, Metro said it requested permission to use a photo of Trump but didn’t receive a reply from his campaign. “Due to the long lead time to produce the cards, the new pass commemorates the national celebration of the 58th Presidential Inauguration,” the agency stated.
Another government subsidy about to be terminated! Look at all the money Trump is saving and he hasn’t even taken office yet!
