UNDOCUMENTED STUDENTS 13 DEMANDS FOR COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY: FREE HEALTHCARE, HOUSING, STAFF SENSITIVITY TRAINING, ETC.
Columbia University got hit by demands from an illegal immigrant group, called Undocumented Students Initiative (UndoCU for short).
UndoCU presented its list of 13 demands on Facebook . Check below – note: some paragraphs not included:
Reflections and Renewed Demands, by UndoCU:
This past year, the year of UndoCU’s conception, we have consistently faced issues and problems that the university has, at best, responded to sparingly. Our daily lived experiences are shaped by national and federal forces that we must face with bravery, but the collective university administration’s inaction has worsened these issues. Some of us were on the verge of homelessness. Some, including their families, are at high risk of deportation. That the university is not active in aiding and ameliorating these problems demonstrates Columbia’s lack of intrinsic interest in its undocumented students.
We therefore present this list of demands upon which we expect the university to act. We are willing to work with anyone, to any extent, in order to resolve these issues. We refuse, however, to amend or change any of these demands.
–Financial and housing difficulties.
While some have been granted summer housing, others have not, and the summer housing process has been shifty, disorganized, and un-proactive.
–Reaching out to/protecting undocumented students
How can administration contact and keep in touch with undocumented students without a record of students that the administration may be in the future be forced to relinquish to federal authorities?
–International student designation
We are international students only by technical designation, so we are all subject to pay the semesterly $70.00 international services fee.
We also demand full reimbursement of the health insurance fees.
–Creation of an ombudsperson position who understands the psychological, financial, administrative, and all other dimensions of the undocumented student issue and experience.
–Specialized fundraising for undocumented students
We want the university as a whole and individual schools to raise funding to specifically support undocumented students in both undergrad and grad schools with the objective of creating undocumented student specific scholarships and grants.
Need based funding must be available for undocumented students at all Columbia University and affiliate schools.
–Inclusion in the undocumented student working group
We demand for faculty representation selected by members of Undocu to be present in the working group meetings.
–CPS—Counseling services training
We want more experienced counselors in immigration available at CPS as well as a variance of options. We want specifically trained immigration counselors as well as counselors trained in trauma. Additionally, we would like treatment to be less medically focused. Currently, some of our experiences with CPS have alienated us from continuing to seek mental health resources.
We demand awareness training of CCE career counselors who understand our unique situation and the sensitive attention it demands.
–Sensitivity training for faculty and staff
During the spring semester we published an op-ed in the Columbia Spectator asking that the university provide sensitivity training for professors, TA, and all other staff in terms of immigration language and rhetoric. Much like sexual health training, it is imperative that immigration subjects be treated with the proper language and information. It is unacceptable for students to be called “illegal” in their own classrooms or for professors to tell us to “get legal.”

- CNN’s Fareed Zakaria : “American universities these days seem to be committed to every kind of diversity – except intellectual diversity”
RARE MOMENT! CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on liberals great delusion of being the most tolerant when it comes to free speech:
“American universities these days seem to be committed to every kind of diversity – except intellectual diversity,” he continued. “Conservative voices and views are being silenced entirely.”
“It’s strange that this is happening on college campuses that promised to give their undergraduates a liberal education,” Zakaria stated.
“The word liberal in this context has nothing to do with today’s partisan language, but refers instead to the Latin root, pertaining to liberty. And at the heart of liberty in the Western world has been freedom of speech. From the beginning, people understood that this meant protecting and listening to speech with which you disagreed.”
Zakaria cite examples of Mike Pence, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, Milo and Ann Coulter, listing them as target of war on free speech by so-called tolerant liberals.
- CONFIRMED: Three leakers of classified information at the White House have been identified and are expected to be fired
( Daily Wire ) At least three people inside the White House have been identified as serial leakers of classified information and are expected to be fired by President Trump before the long holiday weekend ends, according to two news organizations
“CBS News has confirmed from two sources that three leakers of classified information at the White House have been identified and are expected to be fired,” CBS News reported this week, adding, “Officials within the Trump White House believe leaks of Mr. Trump’s conversation with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov are a ‘deliberate attempt’ by officials who are holdovers from President Obama’s administration and are trying to damage the Trump presidency.”
A smaller news org, One America News Network, was the first to break the story, reporting that the identities of three suspected White House leakers have been handed over to authorities.
Reporter Trey Yingst wrote on Twitter that the suspected leakers had been identified:
Strange red lights were seen in the windows of the second-floor residence of the White House around 8:30 p.m. the lights seemed to be strobing inside the building.
Breaking 911 reports:
What appeared to be flashing red lights appeared from the second floor of the White House Sunday evening.
Livestream webcams showed the strange sight—the flashing stopped after about 20 minutes.
There was no official statement from the US Secret Service or The White House.
WSVN anchor Robbin Simmons tweeted out a video of red flashing lights from inside the White House at 8:30pm EST Sunday.
New Kushner-Russia Story Stokes Concern of West Wing Leakers
( Lifezette ) The latest claim stems from a supposed meeting that President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn had on Dec. 1 or 2 with the Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak. According to The Washington Post, U.S. officials who reviewed intercepts between Kislyak and Moscow saw that Kushner requested “a secret [communications] channel with Moscow rather than relying on traditional government systems.”
This alleged request by Kushner, the White House aide who conceived of and planned Mr. Trump’s just-concluded, multi-country trip, “adds to a broader pattern of efforts by Trump’s closest advisers to obscure their contacts with Russian counterparts.”
The Washington Post apparently received its tip about this story through an anonymous letter it received in December — whose full contents the newspaper has not revealed. The letter stated, in part, that Kushner raised the issue with Kislyak about setting up the secure communications channel. It also discussed “arranging a meeting between a representative of Trump and a ‘Russian contact’ in a third country whose name was not identified,” the newspaper reports.
Inside the West Wing, discovering and prosecuting those responsible for the constant drumbeat of leaks has become a top priority. While most of the focus has been on current U.S. intelligence personnel and former Obama administration officials, there is now increasing concern that some of the recent leaks involving Kushner could be coming directly from the West Wing.
A government source familiar with the Trump White House’s inner circle put it this way: “It is sad there are so many insecure people in the West Wing, who don’t care about serving their country or pushing the president’s agenda.” When pressed about the identity of this “insecure person,” the source demurred. “Instead, they are solely focused on themselves and planting false stories, to put targets on other people’s backs, to shift attention from their own records.”

Yep! Lock them up! Newt Gingrich appeared on Fox & Friends Weekend with some hard hitting advice on how to deal with White House leakers : “You start putting a few people in jail, you’ll see the leaks dry up dramatically.”
Newt Gingrich: “I wrote my newsletter this week on the very real notion that we should lock people up who leak secrets. Let me draw the distinction; there’s political garbage from people who go across to the Starbucks near the White House and they sit and they tell insider stories. That’s unfortunate you ought to fire them if you can find them.
But that’s not the same as violating the Secrecy Acts. People who violate the Secrecy Acts ought to go to jail. What happened with the Manchester information for example, after the bombing in Manchester, undermined the British investigation, weakened our relationship to our allies and it’s dangerous.
Whoever leaked that should go to jail. You start putting a few people in jail, and you’ll see the leaks dry up dramatically.”
ALREADY SNOWFLAKES EIGHT GRADERS TO PAUL RYAN DURING D.C. FIELD TRIP: NO PHOTO OP BECAUSE ‘WE ALL HATE YOU!’
- Snowflake in the making! Matthew Malespina, 13-years-old: ‘I would never take a picture with that man. Never. (But) Definitely, I would take a picture with Hillary Clinton‘
- Matthew Malespina immediately texted his librarian mother Elissa Elliott Malespina to tell her that he was so concerned meeting with Paul Ryan and she urged him to let the teachers know he was uncomfortable with it.
- “I can’t take a picture with someone who supports a budget that would destroy public education and would leave 23 million people without healthcare,” Matthew Malespina, a student at the school, told his local newspaper, The Village Green
Eight grade students from South Orange Middle School in New Jersey were in Washington D.C. for a field trip when they get a ‘horrible’ news: House Speaker Paul Ryan is going to meet them!
So disturbed by the idea, Matthew Malespina, 13, immediately texted his librarian mother Elissa Elliott Malespina to tell her that he was so concerned and she urged him to let the teachers know he was uncomfortable with it.
“I can’t take a picture with someone who supports a budget that would destroy public education and would leave 23 million people without healthcare,” Matthew Malespina, a student at the school, told his local newspaper, The Village Green
And because of the disturbing situation, teachers did not force the students to take picture with Ryan, but only those who were willing. When Ryan emerged from the Capitol on Thursday, some students who had agreed to take part were gathered on the steps to have their photograph taken. The others were stood across the street with Ryan unaware that they had refused.
Matthew also ruled out ever posing with President Trump but enthusiastically said he’d have a snap taken with Hillary Clinton.
‘I would never take a picture with that man. Never. (But) Definitely, I would take a picture with Hillary Clinton,’ he said.
South Orange Middle School students in the same grade walked out of classes earlier in the year to protest against Trump’s inauguration.
On Facebook, his librarian mom Elissa Elliott Malespina posted: ‘So proud of Matthew!’
His mother also said:
‘I don’t think it was a sign of disrespect. I think it was a sign of peaceful protesting. A sign of disrespect would be to curse the guy off but he chose to not take a picture with a man who was clearly doing it for a photo-op. I think all of them were rather respectful.’
FAKE NEWS! Portland stabber is not a Trump guy! Jeremy Christian voted for Bernie Sanders but he liked to pose as a Trump supporter in order to discredit pro-Trump people.
Mike Cernovich tweeted earlier that a source informed him that Christian is a Bernie supporter that would “intentionally start scuffles and do Nazi salutes for attention.”
On Facebook, he also called for assassination of AG Jeff Sessions, death to Hillary Clinton voters and how he’s going to kill everyone who voted for Trump.
He also got quite the criminal record: robbery, kidnapping, weapons charges, parole violations, failure to appear in court, contempt.
Jeremy Christian stabbed to death two men on a MAX train Friday when they tried to intervene as he yelled racial slurs at two young Muslim women. According to police, he was ranting about many things, using “hate speech or biased language,” and at one point focused on the young women.
He was kicked out of a free speech event by Trump supporters. One person asked him if he’s ‘smoking crack’ as others shouted, ‘Don’t do drugs! Don’t do drugs!’

( Daily Mail ) UK security chiefs were warned in January that Salman Abedi was planning an attack in Britain, it was claimed last night.
According to a security source, the FBI told MI5 that Abedi was part of a North African Islamic State cell plotting to strike a political target in the UK.
The information came from a US investigation into Abedi and his links to terrorist groups in Libya. The Mail on Sunday has also been told that US security services put him on a terror watch list – used by agents to identify key suspects – in 2016.
The shocking claim piles further pressure on MI5 to reveal when and how it became aware of Abedi, and why UK spies decided he did not pose a significant threat to British security.
The source told The Mail on Sunday: ‘In early 2017 the FBI told MI5 that Abedi belonged to a North African terror gang based in Manchester, which was looking for a political target in this country.
‘The information came from the interception of his communications by US federal agents, who had been investigating Abedi since the middle of 2016, and from information unearthed in Libya, where his family was linked to terrorist groups.
‘Following this US tip-off, Abedi and other members of the gang were scrutinised by MI5. It was thought at the time that Abedi was planning to assassinate a political figure.
‘But nothing came of this investigation and, tragically, he slipped down the pecking order of targets.’

VIDEO: IMAM TAWHIDI: “Do not lie to the nation – our books teach the beheading of people. We have a religion of war.”
The world needs this kind od Muslim, not the radical jihadists! Imam Shaikh Mohammad Tawhidi appeared on Australian television to blast the liberal narrative that Islam has nothing to do with extremism.
“How do these young people get radicalized?” asked the Sunrise host.
“For 1400 years we have a religion of war. How did Islam spread from Saudi Arabia to Indonesia all the way to Bosnia? All spread by the sword”
“We need to be very realistic when dealing with this matter,” began Tawhidi, who has frequently come under fire from his fellow Muslims for his pragmatic view of the religion and call for reformation.
In reference to Manchester bomber Salman Abedi, Tawhidi continued, “you have a 22-year-old who gets radicalized over two, three sermons, within a Friday mosque gathering.”
“Now, this age, is an age when someone would expect people to be going out, having fun, but no we have a large number of youth that are being radicalized.”
“This happens because of the books that we have – the Islamic scriptures that we have,” continued Tawhidi. “They push the Muslim youth to believe that if you go out there and you kill the infidel how you will gain paradise.”
Last month, Iman Tawhidi backed controversial Muslim critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s demand that Islamic schools should be closed for security reasons.
Tawhidi is the official Imam of the Islamic Association of Australia. He’d been receiving threats for criticizing Islam, calling for shutting down Muslim schools and allowing only one mosque in Australia. He said he would never have come to Australia if he knew a ‘mosque on every corner’ was being built ( click link – The Daily Mail )

( Daily Mail ) Hillary Clinton has claimed she defeated Donald Trump in last year’s presidential election.
Clinton, who received almost three million more votes than her reality television host opponent, was denied the presidency because she lost the electoral college count 304 to 227.
But the 69-year-old made the claim in a New York Magazine piece in which she discussed everything from sexism and voter suppression to James Comey costing her the White House, the country ‘stalling’ under Trump, and Russia’s ‘attack’ on American democracy.
Clinton started by dismissing the notion the election was won because of anger, which both Trump and Bernie Sanders, her opponent in the Democratic primary, tapped into.
‘I beat both of them,’ Clinton said, after saying anger is not ‘a good strategy for most people’.
‘You can’t be angry for yourself. You just can’t. You can be indignant, you can be annoyed, you can be frustrated, but you can’t be angry… I don’t think anger’s a strategy,’ she told the magazine.
The former Secretary of State then turned her attention to Comey’s ousting from the FBI by Trump.
‘I am less surprised than I am worried,’ she said.
‘Not that he shouldn’t have been disciplined. And certainly the Trump campaign relished everything that was done to me in July and then particularly in October.
‘Having said that, I think what’s going on now is an effort to derail and bury the Russia inquiry, and I think that’s terrible for our country.’
American businessman Martin Shkreli is offering $100,000 reward for information on Seth Rich’s murder.

PHOTOS: GORGEOUS MELANIA TRUMP IN DOLCE & GABBANA – FROM ELEGANT CHIC TO A DAZZLING SILVER GOWN IN SICILY
( Daily Mail ) It is the final day of Donald and Melania Trump’s first official tour as President and First Lady, and it looks like 47-year-old Melania is eager to go out with a sartorial bang.
After having made a chic arrival in Sicily, where her husband is attending a G7 summit, Melania stepped out Friday morning in the coastal down of Catania, making a very stylish statement in a $51,500 coat by Dolce & Gabanna, which was covered with colorful 3-D flower embellishments – and came complete with a matching $1,630 purse by the Italian luxury label.
However, the First Lady traded the statement coat for a shimmery silver dress and equally sparkly shoes by Dolce & Gabanna to attend a concert by the La Scala Philharmonic Orchestra at the ancient Greek Theatre of Taormina with her husband, President Trump, on Friday evening.
POLAND PM BEATA SZYDLO: ‘WHERE ARE YOU HEADED, EUROPE? RISE FROM YOUR KNEES OR YOU WILL BE CRYING EVERYDAY’
Poland’s conservative Prime Minister Beata Szydło in reaction to EU threats to force her country to accept Muslim migrants or face massive fines. She asked the political elites:
’Where are you going, Europe? Get up off your knees. Get out of your lethargy. Otherwise you will be crying every day for your children.’’
‘All of us in this room have answer this question: Do we want politicians that claim we have to get used to attacks.. or do we want strong politicians who can see danger’
‘’Poland will not submit to any blackmail on the part of the European Union’’, Szydło stated during a parliamentary debate, adding that her Central European nation would not be participating in the ‘’madness of the Brussels elites.’’
Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, forming the so called Visegrad Group, all oppose the imposition of Muslim migrants on their territories. The few with common sense are being bullied by Germany and the rest of EU.
NANCY PELOSI ON TRUMP’S FIRST FOREIGN TRIP: ‘IT WAS NOT EVEN IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER’…WANT AFGHANISTAN FIRST?
Nancy Pelosi on Trump’s first foreign visit: “I thought it was unusual for the President of the United States to go to Saudi Arabia first. Saudi Arabia! It wasn’t even alphabetical. I mean, Saudi Arabia.”
Hey Nancy, if Trump were to begin visiting foreign countries by alphabetical order, he would first visit Afghanistan, followed by Albania, Algeria, Andorra and Angola.
Barack Obama: “In this new world that we live in we can’t isolate ourselves.We can’t hide behind a wall.”
In the meantime, his ten-feet wall for his Washington D.C. home just got finished. As for his Chicago home, neighbors are calling for gate and barricades blocking their street to be removed now that he’s no longer in office.
Obama’s real policy? “A wall for me; not for thee!”
Sitting alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel, former President Obama lectured the current administration about its immigration policy Thursday.
While not mentioning President Trump by name, Obama made clear to whom he was leveling his criticism.
“In this new world that we live in we can’t isolate ourselves,” Obama said. “We can’t hide behind a wall.”
Obama’s Chicago neighbors are also begging Chicago leaders to take down the barriers that have been blocking their street and reopen it to the public because he is no longer in office.
DNA Info reported in February:
Leaders at KAM Isaiah Israel, the synagogue across the street from Barack Obama’s Chicago home, say the heavily secured block in Kenwood should be reopened to the public.
Interim Executive Director Debra Hammond said Monday the synagogue at 1100 E. Hyde Park Blvd. wants the gates and barricades that block Greenwood Avenue at Hyde Park Boulevard removed to send a message of openness and inclusivity.
“If we could have it the way we wanted it, it would be open at Hyde Park Boulevard,” Hammond told DNAinfo. “We want to be more of a place of sanctuary.”
VIDEO! HILLARY COUGHING FIT DURING GRADUATION SPEECH AT WELLESLEY COLLEGE, PREDICTING TRUMP WOULD BE IMPEACH
She’s backkkkkk! Hillary Clinton had a coughing fir during speech at Wellesley College.
After first trying to stifle the cough, Hillary eventually had to stop talking to cough. She was handed a bottle of water by another woman on stage as blamed the cough to allergies.
Hillary was hoarse for several minutes. After she drank some water and took the lozenge, her voice returned. Her adoring audience in the meantime keep on laughing and applauding as if it’s cute and funny.
After her coughing fit is over , which resembled those she had on the campaign trail, she continue with her speech in which she predicted Donald Trump would be impeached. Really? Lock her up!
( Daily Mail ) Republican candidate Greg Gianforte used his victory speech after winning the Montana special election on Thursday to apologize for body-slamming a Guardian journalist the day before.
Within minutes of being declared the winner, Gianforte appeared on stage at his campaign headquarters in Bozeman, Montana, with his wife Susan.
Between chants of ‘drain the swamp’ from his gathered supporters, he found a moment to apologize to reporter Ben Jacobs who he ‘body-slammed’ the previous day.
‘Last night, I made a mistake and I took an action that I can’t take back and I’m not proud of what happened.
‘I should not have responded in the way that I did…I should not have treated that reporter that way and for that I am sorry, Mr Ben Jacobs,’ he said.
It was a marked change from the campaign statement he issued on Wednesday which blamed the scuffle on ‘liberal journalist’ Jacobs and came after calls from House Speaker Paul Ryan who implored him to apologize.
Gianforte won the election with 50.4 percent of the vote over his Democrat opponent Rob Quist’s 43.9.
( College Fix ) A feminist student group recently filed a Title IX lawsuit against the University of Mary Washington that alleges the college failed “to protect them from a sexually hostile school environment.”
But the university denies there is a “sufficiency of evidence” to support the group’s claims.
Members of the group Feminists United at the University of Mary Washington filed the lawsuit against the university and its former president Richard Hurley on May 4. The plaintiffs allege that the university violated Title IX and the 14th Amendment when they did not take sufficient action against offensive speech by male students at the university.
Most of the speech occurred on the social media app Yik Yak, where users could post anonymous messages (known as “yaks”) to others in their geographical area.
The lawsuit classifies many of these messages as “overtly sexist and/or threatening,” and Feminists United claims that by not shutting down Yik Yak on school Wi-Fi, the university fostered a sexually hostile environment, failing to “protect the Plaintiffs from [the] effects” of the offensive yaks.
The lawsuit alleges that Mary Washington exhibited “deliberate indifference” to the “sexually hostile environment” created by the yaks. “Deliberate indifference” is potentially actionable under Title IX.
Thousands of people have dropped off the food stamp rolls in Georgia as a result of the state implementing work requirements for food stamp recipients.
More than half of the 11,779 people enrolled for food stamps in 21 counties, an estimated 7,251 people, have dropped out of the food stamp program—a drop of 62 percent, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
Georgia first rolled out its work requirements for the food stamp program in three counties in January 2016. Since then, the state has expanded work requirements in an additional 21 counties, giving people in those 21 counties until April 1, 2017 to find a job or lose food stamp benefits.
Those who receive benefits must work at least 20 hours a week, be enrolled in state-approved job training, or volunteer for a state-approved non-profit or charity.
State officials say the plan is to extend the work requirements to all 159 counties in Georgia by 2019 and implement work requirements in 60 more counties, starting in 2018.
- Before Maine dropped its waiver in 2014, there were 13,332 food stamp recipients. By March 2015, the number of food stamp recipients dropped by 80 percent, to 2,678 recipients who decided to get a job, participate in job training, or volunteer
( Breitbart by) President Donald Trump’s 2018 budget will save $190 billion over the next ten years by requiring able-bodied adults to work to receive food stamps.
President Trump wrote in his letter to Congress, “We must reform our welfare system so that it does not discourage able-bodied adults from working, which takes away scarce resources from those in real need. Work must be the center of our social policy
White House budget director Mick Mulvaney said at a press conference, “If you’re on food stamps and you’re able-bodied, then we need you to go to work.”
The number of recipients on food stamps skyrocketed recently, 50 million Americans now receive food stamps and use Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cards at grocery or convenience store to buy food and drinks. The 50 million citizens on food stamps amount to 15 percent of the population, a substantial increase from the 17 million Americans who received food stamps in 2000.
Food stamps, officially known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), cost taxpayers more than $83 billion a year. The government remains unable to rein in costs, because the government does not have statistics as to how much food stamp recipients spend on kitchen staples such as meat and vegetables, compared to soda, candy, and potato chips.
A 2011 study confirmed that food stamp recipients spend more money on candy compared to any other food item.
Robert Rector, a welfare expert at the Heritage Foundation, said that requiring work for food stamps was at the “core” of welfare reform in the 1990s. President Trump is “picking the gauntlet off the ground where the Republican party dropped it.”
Trump’s budget would require states to fund one dollar for every four dollars the federal government spends on food stamps.

First Lady Melania Trump wows the world again with her simple but sophisticated style. Melania wore an off-the-shoulder, black lace gown to meet Queen Mathilde of Belgium at the Royal Castle of Laeken on Thursday evening after spending the afternoon at the Magritte Museum in Brussels with other NATO spouses.
Wearing another black dress, the former fashion model turned First Lady arrived in Sicily with Trump, their final stop, holding hands as they made their way down the steps of Air Force One after arriving at Sigonella Air Force Base on Thursday .
From Daily Mail:
Melania had changed into her third outfit of the day – a strappy black cocktail dress with matching pumps which sported a cheeky leopard print sole.
Earlier, she dazzled in Brussels as she met with other NATO spouses and stopped by a children’s hospital to visit sick patients.
Sicily is the final stop on the Trumps’ first foreign overseas tour. On Friday and Saturday, the President will meet with other G7 leaders at a summit in Taormina.
The first lady and the children made a bouquet of paper flowers during her visit, which she happily passed around to the patients on Thursday

Not shocking at all! Two thirds of all Americans – regardless of political orientation – believe the mainstream media is fake news, according to a Harvard University study. Mainstream media are the fake news thugs of the Democrat Party.
From The Hill :
Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the mainstream press is full of fake news, a sentiment that is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum.
According to data from the latest Harvard-Harris poll, which was provided exclusively to The Hill, 65 percent of voters believe there is a lot of fake news in the mainstream media.
That number includes 80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats. Eighty-four percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online.
“Much of the media is now just another part of the partisan divide in the country with Republicans not trusting the ‘mainstream’ media and Democrats seeing them as reflecting their beliefs,” said Harvard-Harris co-director Mark Penn. “Every major institution from the presidency to the courts is now seen as operating in a partisan fashion in one direction or the other.”
VIDEO: TRUMP DID NOT SHOVE MONTENEGRO LEADER – HE JUST TOOK HIS RIGHTFUL SPOT!..NO MORE APOLOGY TOUR AND LEADING FROM BEHIND!
Liberal media are frothing in the mouth every time they see Donald Trump no longer leading from behind nor using his foreign trip for a feel-good, liberal-laced apology tour.
CNBC and CNN posted a video of President Trump at the NATO summit in Brussels and claimed Trump shoved Prime Minister Markovic of Montenegro, a NON-NATO member. Trump did not. He was taking the spot on which he was supposed to be standing for a photo op.
Trump also knows he’s surrounded by European wimps neutered by their own liberal political correctness who allow their continent to be invaded and terrorized by Islamic jihadists for the sake of not being labeled racist.
NATO: Little man French President Emmanuel Macron ignored Donald Trump’s invitation for hug, went to embrace German Chancellor Angela Merkel instead.
When Macron finally reached out to shake his hand, Trump gave him a handshake that made the manlet look like he had a noodle for an arm.
Texas Congressman Blake Farenthold on Wednesday called for a special investigation of Seth Rich’s murder. He tells CNN: “There’s still some question as to whether the intrusion of the DNC server was an insider job or whether or not it was the Russians.”
Corpus Christi Republican Congressman Blake Farenthold considers the source behind the 2016 hack of the Democratic National Committee’s email server an unanswered question and believes a federal investigation is warranted.
Speaking on CNN Wednesday, the fourth-term congressman refuted a widely believed conclusion that the Russian government interfered with the U.S. presidential election to aid President Donald Trump’s campaign and instead indicated a conspiracy theory about a slain Democratic National Committee staffer could be true.
“My fear is our constant focusing on the Russians is deflecting away for some other things that we need to be investigating,” Farenthold said on the network. “There’s still some question as to whether the intrusion of the DNC server was an insider job or whether or not it was the Russians.”
Later Wednesday, Farenthold elaborated on his opinion of how the investigation should be handled in a phone interview with the Caller-Times. The death should be investigated in the same manner Russian interference has been reviewed, he said.
PUKE! OBAMA GETS ROCK STAR TREATMENT IN GERMANY, MEETS WITH ANGELA MERKEL…DESPERATE TO UPSTAGE TRUMP?
Desperate to upstage President Trump, publicity hungry and ABSENTEE FATHER former president Barack Obama went to Berlin, Germany to meet with Angela Merkel at where he received a rock star treatment.
Obama’s trip coincides with President Trump inaugural trip to Europe as president, visiting the European Union and NATO Thursday.
Security was tight in front of the German capital’s iconic Brandenburg Gate, where Obama and Merkel appeared on a podium before thousands of enthusiastic fans attending a gathering marking the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.
Barack Obama’s National Security Agency conducted illegal searches of hundreds of users’ Internet data after the former president relaxed the rules on government snooping.
The Obama administration also upped the number of Americans it had unmasked in intelligence reports, Circa reported, renewing concerns among civil liberty groups that Americans’ Fourth Amendment rights were routinely violated.
Sen. Rand Paul said Wednesday that it also raises questions about the motivations that Obama aides like Susan Rice had when they requested the names of Americans whose identities were obscured in surveillance reports.
If Rice and others did it for political purposes, to hurt Donald Trump for instance, that would be an ‘amazing abuse of power,’ he told Fox & Friends.
The new allegations against the former president and his administration stem from a once top secret information in a Wednesday report.
One out of every 20 searches of Internet data the NSA performed in its database after 2011 violated the safeguard the administration was supposed to be adhering to, Circa says.
The administration admitted to the violations during a secret court hearing in October, just before Donald Trump was elected, but those documents were sealed until last month.
According to Cirica, the proceedings revealed concerns that the administration had been honest about its practices and had a ‘very serious Fourth Amendment issue’ on its hands.
Rice, a former national security advisor to Obama, has claimed that she did not unmask Trump associates for sport, and had followed the letter of the law with her unmasking requests. The ex-official has said she only asked the information when she needed it to understand the intelligence she had been presented.
Former CIA director James Clapper offered similar testimony before a Senate panel in early May.
Now we know one reason why the first lady began with ‘Let us pray’ and ‘Our Father who art in heaven’ when she introduced the president that evening: She’s a practicing Roman Catholic.
Her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham confirmed that to DailyMail.com on Wednesday, hours after Pope Francis blessed a rosary for her at the Vatican.

PHILIPPINES: ISIS BEHEAD POLICE CHIEF, TAKE PRIEST AND WORSHIPERS HOSTAGE HOURS AFTER PRES. DUTERTE DECLARED MARTIAL LAW
Islamist gunmen who took a Catholic priest and churchgoers hostage in the Philippines have beheaded the city’s local police chief, President Rodrigo Duterte has said.
Members of the ISIS-inspired Maute Islamist group stormed the Cathedral of Our Lady Help, in Marawi City on Mindanao island, and abducted church staff including Father Chito Suganob and worshipers.
‘They have threatened to kill the hostages if the government forces unleashed against them are not recalled,’ Filipino Archbishop Socrates Villegas said in a statement.
President Duterte, who declared martial law in parts of Mindanao after militants clashed with soldiers in Marawi yesterday, says he may extend it to other parts of the country if extremists seek sanctuary elsewhere.
The Big News Everyone Missed: Brennan Acknowledged They Were Spying on the Trump Campaign
Now, Brennan’s the former CIA director for Obama. He voted for the communist candidate for president in 1976, a guy named Gus Hall. I think he is a Muslim. It has been said that Brennan converted to Islam at some point in his life. I’m sorry, all I need to know is he worked for Obama. All I need to know is he’s a progressive leftist. And that’s enough for red flags. That’s enough for doubt. That’s enough for me to be suspicious of motives, of objective honesty, things like this.
MANCHESTER BOMBER FAMILY OF JIHADISTS: SALMAN ABEDI’S FATHER LINK TO AL QAEDA, BROTHER PLANNING OWN MASSACRE, BEING HELD IN TRIPOLI
- Suicide bomber Salman Abedi returned to UK from Libya days before attack ‘is linked to Man in the Hat Brussels bomber’
- his father ‘was part of Al-Qaeda-linked group’
- and brother ‘knew of atrocity and was planning own massacre’
An extraordinary picture of the family of Manchester Arena bomber Salman Abedi has emerged tonight, as his father who had Al-Qaeda links and his younger brother were arrested in Tripoli.
Salman killed 22 people and injured at least 119 more when he detonated a bomb on Monday night as children were piling out of the venue having watched Ariana Grande.
The mass-murderer – who apparently had links to the ‘Man in the Hat’ Brussels bomber – had only just returned from a three-week trip to war-torn Libya before launching his horrifying attack, friends said.
That revelation came as his father, Ramadan, was arrested by masked gunmen in Tripoli this evening while recording TV interviews in the country.
Earlier he had claimed his son seemed ‘normal’ when they last spoke five days ago and insisted: ‘We don’t believe in killing innocents.’
Abedi’s younger brother Hashem has also been arrested in Tripoli, Libya, on suspicion of having links to the ISIS who claimed responsibility for Monday night’s atrocity.
He was ‘aware of all the details’ of his plans, a Libyan security force said. Hashem had been ‘under surveillance for a month and a half’ and ‘investigation teams supplied intelligence that he was planning a terrorist attack in the capital Tripoli’, the Deterrence Force said on its Facebook page.
Salman’s older brother Ismail, 23, was arrested yesterday in Chorlton, south Manchester. He is still being quizzed by police, who are probing the family’s links to a terror network.

( Daily News ) “The Carmichael Show” is set to tackle several hot topics when season 3 debuts on May 31, including African-American literacy and the N-word.
One upcoming episode of the NBC sitcom titled “Cynthia’s Birthday,” centers around family matriarch Cynthia Carmichael — played by Loretta Devine — as she marks a milestone. But the festivities go sideways when son Jerrod, played by series star Jerrod Carmichael, gives her a Luther Vandross box set, candles and a book.
“What is this?” a perplexed Cynthia asks.
“This is a first-edition hard cover of the Jacqueline Kennedy biography,” Jerrod tells her. But son Bobby, played by Lil Rel Howery, says a book is a terrible gift because “black people don’t read.”
…The rest of the episode ventures into even more controversial territory when guest star Joshua Rabinowitz — who is Caucasian — affectionately refers to Carmichael as “My Ni—-,” stunning the family at Cynthia’s birthday dinner.
Carmichael said he based the script on his personal experiences.
“It’s a conversation I was having with a lot of my friends, just about who should use it and when it’s appropriate,” he explained. “I just wanted to do an episode that really articulated my feelings around it.”
He believes the word has been given too much power.
“So many people hear it constantly on a daily basis, and it’s like the more we can do to dilute the pain of that word, I think the better, because there are such bigger issues to focus on.”
While some may agree, Devine says the episode will probably make others uncomfortable.
“People are going to be shocked when they see the episode,” she said. “I just hope the NAACP doesn’t come and get us.”

WHITE WOMEN SHUT DOWN THEIR KOOKS BURRITO FOOD TRUCK IN MEXICO FOR ‘STEALING JOBS AND MAKING PROFIT FROM MEXICAN CULTURE’
- ‘Awww, so you nice ladies stole hard-working and low-income Mexican women’s tortilla recipes and are now turning a profit. That’s not white basic privilege at all. #disgusting,’ Alicia Dominguez
- ‘Now that you all boldly and pretty f***ing unapologetically stole the basis of these women’s livelihoods, you can make their exact same product so other white ppl (sic) don’t have to be inconvenienced of dealing with a pesky brown middle woman getting in their way. Great job,’ Shauna MacKinnon
- ‘Stealing is in their nature so I’m not surprised. They’re not creative so they had to get the idea from someone,’ Tee McNeill
( Daily mail ) Two white women have been forced to close their pop-up burrito shop after they were accused of cultural appropriation.
Kali Wilgus and Liz ‘LC’ Connelly opened Kooks Burritos in Portland, Oregon, after taking a trip to Puerto Nuevo, Mexico, last December.
For the first few months, the weekend pop-up shop housed in an taco truck was a smash hit. It gained so much popularity, a local weekly newspaper decided to profile the entrepreneurial duo.
But that’s when the trouble started for Wilgus and Connelly, after quotes they gave to the Williamette Week led to them being accused of stealing their success.
Explaining their trip, Connelly told the newspaper: ‘I picked the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever, and they showed me a little of what they did.
‘In Puerto Nuevo, you can eat $5 lobster on the beach, which they give you with this bucket of tortillas. They are handmade flour tortillas that are stretchy and a little buttery, and best of all, unlimited.
‘They wouldn’t tell us too much about technique, but we were peeking into the windows of every kitchen, totally fascinated by how easy they made it look. We learned quickly it isn’t quite that easy.’
Those comments were latched onto by a food blog in the Portland Mercury, which accused Wilgus and Connelly of ‘preying’ on the women they met in Mexico.
Why would anyone target a concert by the American singer Ariana Grande? The grim answer may lie in the fact that with her revealing stage outfits, her stockings, pink bunny ears and unabashed sexual confidence, 23-year-old Miss Grande is a symbol of everything Islamists hate.
According to the purist, medieval interpretation of the Koran favoured by Islamic State, almost everything about Western music, and the Western lifestyle that goes with it, is haram, or forbidden — and so merits a death sentence.
Indeed, one claim of responsibility for Monday’s attack stated: ‘The explosive devices were detonated in the shameless concert arena.’
Those unfortunate enough to live in Islamic State’s caliphate have experience of this doctrine.
Three years ago, the then fledgling Islamic State issued a statement that read: ‘Songs and music are forbidden in Islam, as they prevent one from the remembrance of God and the Koran, and are a temptation and corruption of the heart.’ The directive went on to cite Koranic verses and Islamic teaching.
4Chan posted pictures of dozens of expensive, unmarked, buses took to Chicago filled with “protestors” holding uniform and expensively printed signs. Thousands of people have recently taken to the streets of Chicago to protest the current minimum wage and demand an increase to $15/hr.

MELANIA AND IVANKA TRUMP WEAR VEILS DURING POPE VISIT, A VATICAN PROTOCOL – SOMETHING SAUDI DIDN’T REQUEST
During their Vatican visit, First Lady Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump were seen wearing black veils over their heads.
The first lady’s communication director, Stephanie Grisham, told CNN:
“Per Vatican protocol, women who have an audience with the Pope are required to wear long sleeves, formal black clothing, and a veil to cover the head.”
Unlike the Vatican, Saudi Arabia did not make any requests or issue any requirements regarding clothing or head scarf, Grisham added. The Saudi press praised Melania for being ‘classy and conservative,’ wearing a black jumpsuit that looks like an abaya, or as the women in Saudi is calling it – Melania’s abaya.
Former CIA Director, John Brennan testified before the House about so-called 2016 election Russia interference.
When Dem. Rep. Adam Schiff asked Brennan if Trump or his aides pressured the Intelligence Community to drop the Flynn investigation, his answer:
Then Trey Gowdy asked Brennan specifically, “Did you have evidence of a connection between the Trump campaign and Russian state actors?”
Brennan: “As I said, Mr. Gowdy, I don’t do evidence.”
Brennan insisted that the Russians did interfere with the 2016 election because it’s something that the Russians have done dating back to the 1960’s and doesn’t think it was worse this time around or if the CIA just has better tools now to pick up on election interference.
During the Trumps’ stop in Israel, first lady of Israel Nechama Rivlin spent time with Melania, whom she called ‘ A charming woman inside and out, sensitive and special’ , and surprised the First Lady with a touching gift intended for Melania’s 11-year-old only son, Barron.
The gift was a book called “The Hug.”
According to descriptions, the book illustrates a mother and son, alone on a walk. Her boy is named Ben. The son is worried that he is alone in the world because he is “special,” but his mother reassures him with a hug.
According to a review from the Jewish Book Council:
Poetically translated from the original Hebrew, we follow young Ben and his mother as they walk through a field one afternoon talking about what makes Ben so very special. If you are unique and special, are you all alone in the world, asks Ben, with a quiet but deep concern. But his mother knows, as mothers often do, how to reassure her child that being one of a kind need never mean being all on your own.
Posting on Facebook, the Israeli First Lady said, ‘It was important for me to give the Barron, who remained at home and is only 11 years old, a souvenir from his parents’ visit to Israel.
She continued, saying Melania was moved and immediately understood that the book was intended for her and Barron. The full comments, posted in Hebrew and translated by Google, are below:
Hi everyone, here is Nechama,
Thank you very much for the warm words from yesterday. You were very excited and excited.
It was a special day for all of us, and of course for Ruby and me too.
In the hustle and bustle of this important and historic visit, I also got to know the first lady from Melania. A charming woman inside and out, sensitive and special.
While we were together, I brought her a gift that I bought for their son, 11-year-old Baron, the charming book “Hug” written by David Grossman and Ira Michal Rovner, in three copies: Hebrew, Arabic and English.
It was important for me to give the Baron, who remained at home and is only 11 years old, a souvenir from his parents’ visit to Israel. There is no suitable number so beautiful, that tells about love by embracing. A book for children, but one that also concerns adults.
Melania was very moved, and immediately understood, even before reading her contents, that this was a story about a mother and child.
I very much hope that Baron will like the book as much as I do.
It was great to sit with her, and with the wonderful Ivanka who joined us, and to talk, among other things, of bringing together strangers who, if they were interested in each other, might have been less afraid of getting closer.
Yours (and thanks again)
- If you aren’t “woke” after the bombing of a kids’ concert, you are already dead. Finished.
( Pamela Geller ) In the wake of the Manchester bombing, I warned here, “Please spare us the teddy bears, slogans and Paris Strong bracelets. There is nothing strong about the West’s capitulation and appeasement of Islamic savages and their ideology.”
I tweeted this:
Cue up “fear of reprisals” and “fear of backlash” and “Islamophobia” hoax stories. Enemedia and left wing political elites use the bloodshed and carnage to attack the victims and advance Islam and mass Muslim immigration.
They use terror to advance more terror.
Soldiers of Allah slaughtered our little girls with nail bombs, bombs with bolts — and the take away? “Don’t let the racists divide us.” Yeah, racists are the problem.
If you aren’t “woke” after the bombing of a kids’ concert, you are already dead. Finished.

The family of slain DNC staffer Seth Rich is calling on the Washington, D.C. police department to go public with details of the murder investigation, after ten months of near-silence from law enforcement officials and as theories continue to spread about the mysterious circumstances of Rich’s shooting death last July.
…An anonymous federal investigator told Fox News on Tuesday that an FBI review of Rich’s computer found he had transferred over 40,000 internal DNC emails to Wikileaks last May, which were later published by the whistle blower website.
…He was on the phone with his girlfriend, Kelsey Mulka, 25, in the minutes before his shooting at 4:19 a.m. Police, responding to the sound of multiple gunshots, found Rich lying on a deserted street in a desolate area of Bloomingdale just a few blocks from his house. He had been shot twice in the back, but was still alive. Nothing appeared to be stolen from him and he still had his watch, wallet and cell phone.
Rich was reportedly very talkative with police and paramedics, and many were surprised when he died about two hours later at the hospital from blood loss.
SEAN HANNITY ATTACKED FOR SETH RICH COVERAGE! MEDIA MATTERS CALLING ADVERTISERS BOYCOTT…SOROS NEXT TARGET?
The back-from-the-grave Seth Rich murder case is freaking out the Democrat party and the liberal media and Sean Hannity is the only journalist on tv brave enough to pick up the story after establishment media declared the story as finished and not worth investigating. Hannity is now facing the consequence for his action. George Soros funded Media Matters is calling Sean Hannity advertisers to drop the Fox News veteran. If Seth Rich story is no big deal, why act scared?
Sean also said tonight, ‘Out of respect for the family’s wishes — for now — I am not discussing this matter at this time.’
Seth Rich family has threatened to sue private investigator Rod Wheeler who uncovered Seth Rich connection with Wikileaks. Hannity may be getting the same pressure from his family.
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Also tonight, the unsolved murder of former DNC staffer Seth Rich continues to get a huge amount of attention. Now, I want to say something. I totally, completely understand how upset, how hard this is on this family, especially over the recent coverage of Seth’s death. Now, I have been communicating with them. I got a very heartfelt note. I also sent them a heartfelt note back. I reached out personally today to Seth’s brother, Aaron. I expressed my condolences over how hard , how difficult this has been for him and his family.
However, out of respect for the family’s wishes — for now — I am not discussing this matter at this time.
EX-DNC CHAIR DONNA BRAZILE WARNED OFF INVESTIGATOR ON SETH RICH MURDER…HIDING SOME CLINTON BODY BAG?
World Net Daily (WND) claims that Rod Wheeler, the private investigator looking into the Seth Rich murder, was warned off by none other than the lying former DNC chair Donna Brazile – the woman who gave CNN debate questions to Hillary Clinton and lied about it repeatedly before finally admitting to it. She was allegedly called buffoon by Hillary but she just kept quiet in response.
Former Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile is the high-ranking DNC representative who allegedly called police and the family of murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich and demanded to know why a private investigator was “snooping” into Rich’s death, the private eye revealed to WND Monday.
“The high-ranking DNC official that called the police after I inquired about Rich’s case was Donna Brazile,” veteran homicide detective Rod Wheeler told WND. “Why shouldn’t I reveal who it was?”
Brazile, who was also a CNN contributor and a Hillary for America donor at the time, was caught providing Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton with questions that would later be asked of Clinton at a televised CNN town hall. In an interview with Fox News before the election, Brazile denied leaking the questions to Clinton. But in a March 17, 2017, column for Time magazine, she finally admitted doing so, saying it was a “mistake I will forever regret.”
A spokesman for the Rich family has repeatedly criticized detective Wheeler, who was hired by Rich’s family in March to find the DNC staffer’s murderer, for not ruling out the possibility that Rich may have leaked DNC emails to WikiLeaks. The Rich family recently sent Wheeler a “cease and desist” order to stop his investigation into the murder.
Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated an improvised explosive device as the Ariana Grande’s concert was coming to a close, killing 22 people and wounding dozens more as Ariana Grande fans, including children, left the show. Authorities say it appears he timed the attack for when fans exited the building, for maximum damage, in an area just outside of the security perimeter.
Abedi has traveled to Libya several times, including within the past three weeks, the Times of London reports.
Abedi was born in Greater Manchester. He has two brothers and a sister, according to The Telegraph. The family has also lived in London, and he was raised in the Whalley Range area of Manchester, where he went to Whalley Range High School. His family has lived Fallowfield area of south Manchester for about 10 years, according to the newspaper.
Abedi was a student at Salford University, the Manchester Evening News reports
