Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has launched a major overhaul of the party’s organization, which has been stung by recent crises — and the DNC has requested resignation letters from all current staffers.
Party staff routinely see major turnover with a new boss and they had been alerted to expect such a move. However, the mass resignation letters will give Perez a chance to completely remake the DNC’s headquarters from scratch. Staffing had already reached unusual lows following a round of post-election layoffs in December.
Immediately after Perez’s selection as party chairman in late February, an adviser to outgoing DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile, Leah Daughtry, asked every employee to submit a letter of resignation dated April 15, according to multiple sources familiar with the party’s internal workings.
Schumer reportedly lost his cool after bumping into Joseph A. Califano Jr (left) and his wife, Hilary (middle)
UNHINGED! While dining at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, top Democrat Chuck Schumer went nuts, triggered when he saw wealthy Democrat Joseph A. Califano Jr. and his wife having a quiet dinner. Califano’s wife voted for Donald Trump and that’s enough to make this creepy loony lib go unhinged anytime, anywhere!
One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ”
FOX NEWS reported:
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.”
Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses.
He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner.
Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat.
One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ”
Russia threatens to reveal secrets they have made with Obama! When asked about the current state of U.S.-Russia relations, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova Russia may “publish leaks” about “secrets” the Obama administration asked the Russian government to keep private.
Question: How do you see the future of Russian-US diplomatic relations in the context of the current atmosphere in Washington? Can you confirm that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will come to Moscow in April?
Also, I would like to say that if the practice of leaking information that concerns not just the United States but also Russia, which has become a tradition in Washington in the past few years, continues, there will come a day when the media will publish leaks about the things that Washington asked us to keep secret, for example, things that happened during President Obama’s terms in office. Believe me, this could be very interesting information.
Our American colleagues must decide if they respect the diplomatic procedure, if they keep their word on the arrangements made between us, primarily arrangements made at their own request, or we create a few very nice surprises for each other.
Finally! Donald Trump is calling for investigation of Hillary Clinton for selling uranium to Russian company Uranium One, which was also owned by Russian government, giving them 20% control of U.S. uranium. In return, the Clintons got $145 million donations – did not disclose it – for their pay-for-play Clinton foundation. Hillary’s campaign director, John Podesta, not only lobbied for Uranium One but “Russia’s biggest bank uses The Podesta Group as its lobbyist in Washington, D.C.”
“In addition to certain ties with one of Russia’s largest banks, the Podesta Group is also linked to the Uranium One sale of U.S. uranium. Yes, the Clinton Campaign’s chairman is linked to a firm that lobbied the U.S. government on behalf of a corporation that eventually sold 20% of U.S. uranium to the Russian government.
From LIBERAL Huffington Post: Hillary Clinton Is Blaming Russia for WikiLeaks To Conceal John Podesta’s Russian Lobbying Ties
The fear mongering of associating WikiLeaks with a Russian plot to elect Donald Trump ignores the reality that John Podesta’s former lobbying firm worked to further the interests of a Russian-owned corporation and bank. Few people know that Open Secrets.org lists the Podesta Group as once having a $60,000 lobbying deal with Uranium One. In addition to lobbying on behalf of a corporation that was mostly owned by the Russian government, the Podesta Group’s ties to a Russian bank is well-documented.
As stated by John R. Schindler in a 2016 Observer article, the Panama Papers revealed that “Russia’s biggest bank uses The Podesta Group as its lobbyist in Washington, D.C.” If you don’t believe this claim, just look at the Podesta Group’s Senate Lobbying Registration. As for other foreign ties to John Podesta, Ben Norton of Salon writes “A key gear in the Clinton machine that has sucked in hundreds of thousands of dollars lobbying on behalf of the Saudi absolute monarchy has also worked for Russia’s biggest bank.”
In addition to certain ties with one of Russia’s largest banks, the Podesta Group is also linked to the Uranium One sale of U.S. uranium. Yes, the Clinton Campaign’s chairman is linked to a firm that lobbied the U.S. government on behalf of a corporation that eventually sold 20% of U.S. uranium to the Russian government.
…The notion that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and John Podesta didn’t know Uranium One would eventually sell 20% of U.S. uranium to the Russian government ignores an inconvenient timeline. First, Podesta’s lobbying firm worked for Uranium One after half the company was owned by the Russian government. By 2010, Russia’s state-owned Rosatom controlled a 51% stake in Uranium One.
Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chairman and Obama adviser, John Podesta, may have violated federal law when he failed to disclose 75,000 stock shares from a Russian-backed company in 2014. Another REAL Russian scandal fake news liberal media refused to cover is the fact Hillary Clinton sold 20% of our Uranium to Russia in exchange for $150 million to the Clinton Foundation. In the meantime, the anti-Trump media continue to insist their imaginary Trump and Russian connection really happened.
Joule Unlimited Technologies — financed in part by a Russian firm — originally awarded Podesta 100,000 shares of stock options when in 2010 he joined that board along with its Dutch-based entities: Joule Global Holdings, BV and the Stichting Joule Global Foundation.
When Podesta announced his departure from the Joule board in January 2014 to become President Obama’s special counsellor, the company officially issued him 75,000 common shares of stock.
The Schedule B section of the federal government’s form 278 which — requires financial disclosures for government officials — required Podesta to “report any purchase, sale or exchange by you, your spouse, or dependent children…of any property, stocks, bonds, commodity futures and other securities when the amount of the transaction exceeded $1,000.”
Podesta’s form 278 Schedule B is blank regarding his receipt of any stock from any company.
Future events at Raiders Stadium: The Las Vegas Bowl. Neutral-site college football games. Concerts by big-time performers big enough to draw stadium crowds. The Super Bowl. A massive UFC or boxing ticket. World-class soccer exhibitions. The NCAA basketball Final Four. National political conventions
According to Las Vegas-Review Journal, the Oakland Raiders relocating to Las Vegas is a move that would enable the Las Vegas Stadium Authority to sign agreements with a developer and an events company for a new public venue that not only would house football games involving the Raiders and UNLV, but also large special events for which Las Vegas has become famous.
Yes, there will be eight Raiders home games and two exhibition games. Yes, UNLV will play its home games there and get dates for events like graduations.
Then come the things we’ve become famous for and are well-equipped to accommodate large crowds.
The Las Vegas Bowl. Neutral-site college football games. Concerts by big-time performers big enough to draw stadium crowds. The Super Bowl. A massive UFC or boxing ticket. World-class soccer exhibitions. The NCAA basketball Final Four. National political conventions.
No, United Did Not Ban Two Girls From A Flight Simply Because They Wore Leggings
March 26, 2017 Milo
Speaking with the Washington Post, a United Airlines spokesman expanded, stating the passengers that were turned away were attempting to board using a United employee pass.
This pass, according to the spokesman, comes with its own dress policy.
“Our regular passengers are not going to be denied boarding because they are wearing leggings or yoga pants,” said the spokesman. “But when flying as a pass traveler, we require [these] pass travelers to follow rules, and that is one of the rules.”
Continuing, he said, “they were not compliant with the dress policy with the benefit,” adding that the teens were aware of the rule.
The Washington Post states that travelers familiar with United’s travel pass say “it has long been a requirement for those using the benefit to dress up more than paying passengers.”
Malia Obama, 18 and intoxicated, attacks Gateway Pundit reporter Lucian Wintrich at an exclusive Soho club in New York. According to Wintrich, after confirming his identity, the former first daughter screamed at him:
I’m not even joking, I’m no @CNN#fakenews, Malia Obama just screamed at me after confirming my identity – one off my bucket list.
Where are the absentee parents? Oh, Barack is in a Polynesian island right now and Madame Mochelle is missing in action. Hey liberal media, any take on this?
Gateway Pundit – Saturday, March 25, 2017, found Malia Obama, the 44th President’s oldest daughter, at the Parlor, an exclusive Soho club, for a 21-and-over, alcohol-fueled event. The minor had been rubbing shoulders with other guests all night until she spotted the Gateway Pundit’s own White House correspondent Lucian Wintrich.
Multiple witnesses watched as Malia Obama, Obama’s oldest daughter, ran up to Wintrich with the intent of stirring up controversy. Wintrich believes at the point of altercation she was intoxicated, which should bring everyone back to those other moments of infamy when Barrack’s daughter decided to “act out”.
Wintrich attempted to snap a picture of Malia before she ran up to him furious. She asked Wintrich to confirm who he was before accosting him and saying: “If you wanna have a conversation, let’s sit down, let’s have a real conversation.”
Wintrich responded in kind by welcoming the invitation: “Absolutely. Let’s sit down and have a conversation.”
This positive response from Wintrich sent Malia into a tailspin with the former President’s daughter saying, “I think you’re disgusting.”
She was quickly escorted away by her personal security. Wintrich was able to capture this photo of Malia’s elbow
Wintrich and company claim that Malia was shouting both at him and others and seemed to be visibly unhinged. Wintrich currently is in New York packing his stuff for D.C. and the Briefing Room and was hoping for a civil night out when the incident went down. Luckily for Malia, her security was there to keep her from doing something even more reckless.
Piizzagate protesters join veterans and MAGA crowd at pro-Trump rally outside White House. A young boy carries this sign: ‘If you see me with John Podesta call the police.’ Others wear shirts calling for pizzagate investigation.
1 dead, 1 injured after RTC bus shooting outside Cosmopolitan on Strip
By MAX MICHOR
LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
Two people were shot and one has died after a shooting on a Regional Transit Commission bus outside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Saturday.
Las Vegas Metropolitan police department spokesman Officer Larry Hadfield told reporters at 1 p.m. that two people had been shot on the RTC bus and had been taken to University Medical Center, where one died. The condition of the second person is unknown, Hadfield said.
Police believe the shooter was still on the bus as of 1:30 p.m. Hadfield would neither confirm nor deny if there were passengers still on the bus as police were in the process of finding and interviewing passengers.
Hadfield said there is no “credible information” that there is a second suspect and there was no “active shooter” situation at any casino.
‘Art of the Deal’ Healthcare Bill Failure a Way to Oust Paul Ryan and Achieve Full Repeal of Obamacare?
( Gateway Pundit by Cristina Laila ) Today, President Trump pulled the healthcare bill after it fell short of the votes needed to pass. The highly unpopular ‘Ryancare’ replacement of Obamacare left the Republicans divided.
Did Trump give Paul Ryan just enough rope to hang himself? It is no secret that Paul Ryan has contempt for President Trump and is working to sabotage him. This may Trump’s plan to have Paul Ryan ousted and replaced.
Breitbart also reported on an author who predicted this..
Exactly two weeks ago, this author predicted the defeat of the American Health Care Act – and explained it was a step towards the final, actual deal that will repeal and replace Obamacare.
President Donald Trump faces three irreconcilable factions: the GOP establishment, conservatives, and Democrats. He must bring them together — to “deliver the goods,” a key rule in The Art of the Deal. But first he must show them “the downside” — and convince them they will fail on their own.
So he let them make the first move — and he exposed two things about them: first, that they had not come up with a plan that was ready for prime time; second, that they had not done any of the political legwork necessary to sell their plan to voters.
Trump gave Speaker Paul Ryan and the House Republican leadership enough rope to hang themselves. Instead of dictating terms to him, they will now depend on him to save them, politically. They must accept whatever plan he will put forward.
But Trump will not make the next move. He will let the conservatives move first. They are the big winners in the first round — much more so than the Democrats, who are enjoying the spectacle of Republican dysfunction but have no role to play yet.
The conservatives will proceed with their demand for a full repeal of Obamacare. And then they will face the ire of voters who are deeply unhappy with Obamacare but upset about losing the paltry, expensive health insurance they currently have.
That, too, will strengthen Trump, and convince conservatives they need his leadership.

501 cases of missing juveniles, many of them black or Latino, in the first three months of this year.
( Fox News ) The Congressional Black Caucus is calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the FBI to help in the search for missing black girls in the Washington, D.C., area, following an alarming string of missing children cases from the nation’s capital.
The District of Columbia logged 501 cases of missing juveniles, many of them black or Latino, in the first three months of this year, according to the Metropolitan Police Department, the city’s police force. Twenty-two were unsolved as of March 22, police said.
The letter, dated Tuesday and obtained Thursday by The Associated Press, was sent by Congressional Black Caucus chairman Cedric Richmond, D-La., and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, who represents the District in Congress.
‘Hunting and Killing white women’ is not hate speech nor to violation of community standards, says Facebook. Facebook version of hate speech is like CNN version of real news.
“White women should be hunted and killed then we won’t get white babies who think the(y) own the world,” the user posted.
When the post was reported by another user for “hate speech,” Facebook responded with the message, “We reviewed the comment you reported for displaying hate speech and found it doesn’t violate our Community Standards.”
Another non-hate speech are pages devoted to showing grisly mock images of President Trump being assassinated.
However, Christians that simply state bible passages in discussions about homosexuality are being removed for violating Community Standards – UNLESS it’s a Muslim stating homophobic rant, because Muslims got the upper tier above anyone else, even LGBT, when it comes to free speech superiority.
( Daily Mail ) An El Salvadorian man who has been deported from the U.S. four times is accused of sexually assaulting his girlfriend’s two-year-old daughter and brutally stabbing two women in a vicious New York crime spree.
Tommy Vladim Alvarado-Ventura allegedly beat and sexually assaulted the toddler at the home he shares with his girlfriend in Hempstead, New York in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
The 31-year-old, who is a member of the violent El Salvadorian gang MS-13, is also accused of stabbing a woman at a bar and brutally attacking his girlfriend in the hours that followed.
Police said Alvarado-Ventura was home with his girlfriend’s daughter and her four-year-old son while she was at work on Tuesday night. The children were being watched by another tenant who lives in a separate part of the home.
Authorities say he beat and sexually assaulted the girl, but it is not clear what time the attack took place. The child’s injuries were so severe she had to undergo surgery, ABCreports.
Police described Alvarado-Ventura’s violent five-hour crime spree as the ‘most heinous criminal act’ they had seen.
Alvarado-Ventura left the home at about 12.30am and went to a nearby bar where he got into an argument with a young woman over some marijuana
“smoking gun” evidence that “the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump.”
( Breitbart by John Hayward ) James Rosen of Fox News reports that Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee will be presented with “smoking gun” evidence that “the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump.”
According to the source for Rosen’s report, this evidence will come from the National Security Agency, which is supposed to produce documents for the House Intelligence Committee by Friday. It is expected to take a week or so for congressional investigators to assess these materials.
The NSA material is said to be even more compelling than the evidence that prompted committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) to announce on Wednesday that “incidental” surveillance of the Trump transition team was conducted by the intelligence community.
Rosen’s report has a few more interesting developments in the aftermath of Nunes’ announcement:
Because Nunes’s intelligence came from multiple sources during a span of several weeks, and he has not shared the actual materials with his committee colleagues, he will be the only member of the panel in a position to know whether the NSA has turned over some or all of the intelligence he is citing. However, Fox News was told Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., had been briefed on the basic contents of the intelligence described by Nunes.
CIA Director Mike Pompeo is also sympathetic to the effort to determine, with documentary evidence, the extent of any alleged Obama administration spying on the Trump team, sources said.
Ouch! CNN & MSNBC Caught doing LIVE Interview with Same Guest At The SAME TIME.!!! Mark Dice posted on his youtube channel the fake ‘live’ interview caught by a channel surfer proving CNN and MSNBC are still kicking and thriving when it comes to making fake news.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the chairman of the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, went on with Sean Hannity to discuss the surveillance by the Obama administration on the Trump Transition Team. Nunes said the crime of releasing General Flynn’s conversations to the Russian Ambassador is up to five years in prison.
Sean Hannity: Not only an unmasking took place but also an intelligence leak. And as I understand it never happens in a case where signature intelligence such as this is in fact obtained. Is that correct?
Rep. Devin Nunes: Yeah, I’ve never heard of that happening before and as I’ve said many times the only crime that has been committed here is that one and it’s quite clear that it was a crime…
Sean Hannity: And in the case of any type of leak that would be a violation of the espionage act. That would be a felony. That would be five years potentially in prison?
Rep. Devin Nunes: That’s correct and it appears that that happened.
A new WikiLeaks Vault 7 leak titled “Dark Matter” claims, with unreleased documents, that the Central Intelligence Agency has been bugging “factory fresh” iPhones since at least 2008. WikiLeaks further claims that the CIA has the capability to permanently bug iPhones, even if their operating systems are deleted or replaced.
The documents are expected to be released in the next 24-hours. The announced was made after a “press briefing” that WikiLeaks promoted on its Twitter.
From RT: CIA’s NightSkies tool can hack, remotely control iPhones without user knowing
WikiLeaks has revealed the CIA’s alleged ability to infiltrate and control iPhones through a tool called NightSkies, which is physically installed onto factory fresh iPhones and allows the CIA to monitor and download files from targets’ phones undetected.
The revelation is part of WikiLeaks’ latest Vault 7 release named ‘Dark Matter.’
NightSkies works in the background and grants “full remote command and control,”to the CIA, allowing it to upload and download files from iPhones, including details from the owner’s phonebook, text messages and call logs, and to execute actions on the phones as it wishes.
In the press release regarding the latest ‘Vault 7’ leak, WikiLeaks claims that NightSkies “is expressly designed to be physically installed onto factory fresh iPhones.”
A 2008 document featured in the release explains that NightSkies v1.2 must be physically installed and will only start beaconing information once the user starts to use the phone.
Why losing your sense of smell could be a sign you’re about to DIE
A healthy sense of smell depends on a continual turnover of cells lining the nose
Losing this fucntion could be an indicator of less regenration in the body overall
( Daily Mail ) Pensioners who lose their sense of small are more likely to die within 10 years, according to a new study.
Researchers say the findings suggest measuring older patients’ sense of smell could indicate their overall well-being.
The analysis, of almost 1,800 people, found those who struggled to pick up scents and odours were more likely to die over the next decade.
And the phenomenon was not linked to those with dementia, which has previously been associated with a loss of smell.
Loss of olfactory function is common in old age, with up to 70% of the older population estimated to have impaired sense of smell, compared with as few as 5% of younger individuals.
It has been linked to psychiatric conditions such as schizophrenia and major depression as well as dementia, Parkinson’s disease and cognitive decline.
Dr Olofsson said: ‘Poor odour identification and poor self reported olfactory function are associated with greater likelihood of future mortality. Dementia does not attenuate the association between olfactory loss and mortality, suggesting olfactory loss might mark deteriorating health, irrespective of dementia.’
Three years ago a study of 3,000 adults found four in ten of those with the poorest sense of smell were dead within five years compared to just one in ten who identified odours correctly.
….Scientists say the loss of smell sense does not cause death directly, but may be an early warning sign. They say anyone with long lasting changes should seek medical advice.
It doesn’t directly cause death, but it is a harbinger, an early warning system that shows damage may have been done.
Theories suggest it signifies less regeneration of cells in the body overall.
According to many analysts, the retail apocalypse has been a long time coming in the US, where stores per capita far outnumber that of any other country.
The US has 23.5 square feet of retail space per person, compared with 16.4 square feet in Canada and 11.1 square feet in Australia, the next two countries with the most retail space per capita, according to a Morningstar report from October.
Visits to shopping malls have been declining for years with the rise of e-commerce and titanic shifts in how shoppers spend their money. Visits declined by 50% between 2010 and 2013, according to the real-estate research firm Cushman & Wakefield.
….The nation’s worst-performing malls — those classified in the industry as C- and D-rated — will be hit the hardest by the store closures.
The real-estate research firm Green Street Advisors estimates that about 30% of all malls fall under those classifications. That means that nearly a third of shopping malls are at risk of dying off as a result of store closures.
London Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan claims terror attacks are ‘part and parcel’ of living in a big city. After today’s ISIS attack where 4 killed, 20 injured and a cop hacked to death, Donald Trump Jr reacted to the London terror attack by criticizing Mayor Sadiq Khan.
Donald Jr re-tweeted an article from September, in which Khan stated that terror attacks were ‘part and parcel’ of living in a big city.
Khan gave the interview six-months-ago reacting about the bombs that were detonated in New York City and Jersey in September, injuring 31.

( Politico ) Members of the Donald Trump transition team, possibly including Trump himself, were under U.S. government surveillance following November’s presidential election, House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) told reporters Wednesday.
Nunes said the surveillance appeared to be legal but that he was concerned because it was not related to the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s meddling in the election and was widely disseminated across the intelligence community.
“I have seen intelligence reports that clearly show that the president-elect and his team were, I guess, at least monitored,” Nunes told reporters. “It looks to me like it was all legally collected, but it was essentially a lot of information on the president-elect and his transition team and what they were doing.”
Nunes said he is heading to the White House later Wednesday to brief Trump on what he has learned, which he said came from “sources who thought that we should know it.” He said he was trying to get more information by Friday from the FBI, CIA and NSA.
Nunes described the surveillance as most likely being “incidental collection.” This can occur when a person inside the United States communicates with a foreign target of U.S. surveillance. In such cases, the identities of U.S. citizens are supposed to be kept secret — but can be “unmasked” by intelligence officials under certain circumstances.
Nunes said his new information appears to show that additional members of the Trump transition team — beyond former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn — were unmasked. This means they were identified in U.S. intelligence reports.
( Bloomberg ) Payless Inc., the struggling discount shoe chain, is preparing to file for bankruptcy as soon as next week, according to people familiar with the matter.
The company is initially planning to close 400 to 500 stores as it reorganizes operations, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the deliberations aren’t public. Payless had originally looked to shutter as many as 1,000 locations, and the number may still be in flux, according to one of the people.

( Milo ) A New York man by the name of Andrew King has been arrested on suspicion of spray painting swastikas outside his home and later claiming he was targeted by Trump supporters because of his Jewish heritage, reports News10.
Back in February, Andrew King reportedly spoke with The Daily Gazette about the supposed hate crime.
“Just a vein of fear went right through me,” he said. “All that history attached to that Nazi symbol.”
King went on to tie the supposed hate crime to Trump supporters, stating he would be leaving the swastikas up to “show people who thrive on hate, in my opinion, that love trumps hate in the long run.”
He also stated he would be communicating with religious leaders in the community regarding how long to keep the symbols up.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz blasts Democrats today during confirmation hearing of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s Supreme Court.
Democrats use their usual “baseless” claims against Gorsuch accusing him of being “against the little guy because he has dared to rule on the law — the law that Congress has passed — and not on the specific identity of the specific litigants appearing before him.”
Cruz reminded the Democrats on what is the job of a Supreme Court judge, “a judge’s job is not to protect the little guy or the big guy. A judge swears in oath to uphold the constitution fairly, impartially and equally for every litigant.”
“In the past weeks as well, some of my Democratic colleagues have questioned Judge Gorsuch’s independence, suggested that he needs to answer questions about the actions and statements and even the tweets of the President who appointed him.”
“I would ask, was Justice Ginsburg or Justice Breyer asked about the sexual harassment that had been filed against President Clinton by Paula Jones? No, neither was asked about that lawsuit.”
“Those questions were not asked because they were inappropriate political questions that have nothing to do with the record of the nominee before this committee.”
Kenneth Lewis Barrett, 71-year-old mayor of Winston, Oregon arrested for soliciting sex with a 14-year-old girl who turned out to be a police officer. He describes himself as “71 with the mind of a 17 year old and the energy of a 12 year old.”
The 71-year-old mayor of a southern Oregon town was arrested Sunday, accused of setting up a meeting to have sex with a 14-year-old girl who turned out to be a police officer.
Kenneth Lewis Barrett, who began his two-year term as mayor of Winston in January, spent two weeks exchanging Facebook messages with an online decoy created to target adults soliciting sex with children, court documents said.
He was arrested when he showed up to a designated meeting spot in Myrtle Creek, police said.
Barrett mentions in the online messages several times that he’s mayor of Winston, acknowledges the decoy is 14 and describes himself as “71 with the mind of a 17 year old and the energy of a 12 year old,” according to a probable cause affidavit.
Barrett faces allegations of second-degree online sexual corruption and unlawful possession of a firearm after investigators said he admitted to having a 9mm handgun without a concealed weapons permit in his pickup.
Winston is a town of about 5,400 people south of Roseburg in Douglas County. It’s most known for Wildlife Safari, a 600-acre drive-through animal park.
Barrett was one of four men arrested in the online sting that began in late February, said Myrtle Creek Police Chief Don Brown. The other three range in age from 18 to 51 and one was arrested in California, where he lives, after arranging for the fictitious girl to ride a Greyhound bus to live with him.

( Daily Mail ) The ‘Fearless Girl’ statue on Wall Street was briefly turned into a MAGA hat-wearing, American flag-draped Donald Trump supporter.
Shortly after midnight on Monday, a couple of men wearing red Make America Great Again hats who hid their faces behind scarfs and sunglasses sneaked up to the small bronze girl who is bravely staring down Wall Street’s iconic charging bull in Lower Manhattan.
A ‘tipster’ took pictures of the men putting a MAGA hat on the girl, normally in a skirt with her ponytail swinging.
They also draped an American flag around her shoulders and gave her ‘pro-Trump’ signs, one which read ‘VETS B4 ILLEGALS’ and another that had a drawing of Pepe the Frog, which has been deemed a white nationalist hate symbol, reported The Gothamist.
The little girl statue was commissioned by $2.5trillion asset manager State Street Global Advisors for International Women’s Day and has become nearly as famous as the bull.
The financial company was criticized for not putting its money where its statue is – the firm only has five female top executives out of 28.
New York politicians Public Advocate Letitia James and Representative Carolyn Maloney have suggested the ‘Fearless Girl’ become a permanent part of the Wall Street milieu.
It’s unclear exactly how long the little girl was an unwitting Trump supporter, but she appears to now be back to her skirt and ponytail.
MAC is suing Ivanka but according to an interview, they don’t care about sales: ‘One of the rules I learned early on about MAC is we’d rather make a friend than a sale’
San Francisco based Modern Appealing Clothing ( MAC ) is suing Ivanka Trump for ‘unfair competition’. The suit also asked for a restraining order that prevents the Ivanka Trump label from being sold in California. MAC is described as a “San Francisco’s fashion Wonderland”. It was founded in San Francisco by brother and sister Ben and Chris Ospital, with their mom, Jeri, in 1980.
While Ivanka’s clothes are classic chic, Modern Appealing Clothing (MAC) just complete opposite:
“The merchandise is high-concept fantasy” with “collections of independent brands and local designers with out-of-the-ordinary visions”
Ben Ospital:We all had a radical streak. Mom and Dad supported Cesar Chavez, and at 12 I was making signs for United Farm Workers protests.
Ben: We still say today what we said then: “Dress one person well, they’ll tell 20 people.” That’s how things started.
Goble:One of the rules I learned early on about MAC is we’d rather make a friend than a sale. I understand through Ben, Chris and Jeri’s guidance the importance of the karma of clothes.
The looney libs are upset that they did not destroy Ivanka’s business with their lame boycott. Their latest looney trick is a lawsuit against Ivanka filed by San Francisco-based retailer Modern Appealing Clothing. The suit wants to ban Ivanka’s products from being sold in California. Modern Appealing Clothing was founded in San Francisco by brother and sister Ben and Chris Ospital, with their mom, Jeri, in 1980.

( Hollwood Reporter by Stephanie Chan ) A class-action lawsuit against the first daughter’s company has been filed by San Francisco-based retailer Modern Appealing Clothing.
Although Ivanka Trump has distanced herself from her namesake brand, the business can’t seem to catch a break. The first daughter’s company has been sued by a San Francisco-based retailer over “unfair competition.”
Modern Appealing Clothing (MAC) has filed a class-action lawsuit against Ivanka Trump Marks LLC, claiming that the defendant has gained unfair advantage “from Donald J. Trump being the President of the United States and from Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared, working for the President of the Unites States,” according to court documents published by the International Business Times.
The suit was filed in the San Francisco Superior Court on Thursday.
The lawsuit says President Donald Trump and counselor Kellyanne Conway provided publicity for Ivanka’s lines and therefore helped boost its sales. Donald defended his daughter on Twitter, saying that Nordstrom was treating her unfairly when the retailer announced it would be dropping her line due to declining sales. Conway appeared on Fox & Friends in February and told viewers to “go buy Ivanka’s stuff.”
Online searches for Ivanka’s brand did increase in February, according to Refinery29, which cited a report from e-commerce aggregator Lyst. The brand’s sales increased by 346 percent from January to February and 557 percent in February compared to same period in 2016. Abigail Klem, president of the Ivanka Trump brand, also told Refinery29 that the brand has surged in the past six months.
Resale site ThredUP, however, reported that sellers are putting their Ivanka Trump products up at an increased rate.
The suit also asked for a restraining order that prevents the Ivanka Trump label from being sold in California. The doc read, “As a result of their unlawful acts, defendants have reaped and continue to reap unfair benefits and illegal profits at the expense of plaintiff MAC and the Class it seeks to represent.”
Modern Appealing Clothing was founded in San Francisco by brother and sister Ben and Chris Ospital, with their mom, Jeri, in 1980. MAC, which is described as “San Francisco’s fashion Wonderland,” has locations in Hayes Valley and Dogpatch.
Fox News did not respond to inquiries about Napolitano’s status Monday. Napolitano was conspicuously missing from the network’s coverage of the confirmation hearings on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch — an event in which he typically would have played a significant role. He has not been on the air since Thursday.
People familiar with the situation who could speak only on the condition of anonymity said Napolitano is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future. Napolitano was not available for comment.
But Napolitano said on one program that “Fox News has spoken to intelligence community members who believe that surveillance did occur, that it was done by British intelligence.”
Fox News, however, did no such thing, forcing its anchors to walk back Napolitano’s statement.
“Fox News knows of no evidence of any kind that the now-president of the United States was surveilled at any time, in any way,” Shepard Smith told viewers Friday.
In a statement read on the Fox News program “MediaBuzz” on Sunday, Napolitano defended his comments. He said he “reported what the sources told me, reported it accurately and I do believe the substance of what they told me.”
Forget the fake polls from haters! Thousands of excited Trump supporters lined up early to see President Donald Trump in Louisville, Kentucky tonight. According to Daily Mail, people showed up as early as 14 hours ago and the line was more than half a mile.
President Donald J. Trump will hold a rally at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Freedom Hall Monday starting at 7:30 PM.
Eric Trump and his wife Lara are expecting their first child this September—and they’re having a boy.
“We found out on my birthday, which was pretty cool,” says Eric, 33.
Lara Trump, 33, a former Inside Edition producer who is now involved with multiple animal charities, says that now she’s in her second trimester, she’s feeling great. “I was exhausted in the beginning,” she says.
“It surprised me, because I’m a very active person, and until the fatigue hit, I didn’t believe it would actually happen to me,” she says. “It really affected me. But I’m feeling really good now.”
Now that they’re expecting, they say they just need to come up with a name for baby, who will be President Trump’s ninth grandchild. (Eric’s brother Don Jr. has five kids with his wife Vanessa; sister Ivanka has three with husband Jared Kushner.)
Greg Piatek, 30, an accountant from Philadelphia, claims he was snubbed and eventually 86’d by workers at The Happiest Hour on West 10th Street over his conservative fashion statement, popularized by Donald Trump on the campaign trail, he told The Post.
“Anyone who supports Trump — or believes what you believe — is not welcome here! And you need to leave right now because we won’t serve you!” Piatek claims he was told as he was shown the door by a manager.
The shake-up started when Piatek and two pals, after a visit to the 9/11 Memorial, ordered drinks at the posh tavern around 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 28.
A female bartender served Piatek a $15 jalapeño margarita and his pals beers. But when he tried to order a second round, a male bartender noticed his hat — and skipped them, he said.
One of Piatek’s pals pointed out it was their turn to be served, but the bartender scoffed. “Is that hat a joke?” the Manhattan Supreme Court suit claims.
“Immediately it clicked,” Piatek said, adding that bartenders didn’t see the pro-Trump slogan until he turned his back to the bar.
“Ignoring me because I’m wearing the hat is ridiculous,” Piatek said. “It’s really sad.”
The “flustered” bartender got them a second round but allegedly “slammed the drinks down.”
Bar owner Jon Neidich did not respond to calls. A manager at the bar refused to comment.
Suzzanne Monk also wrote a letter to editor of a Chicago business news the reason why they are shutting down their store:
‘Two choices for Trump supporters in Chicago: Be silent or be bullied’
So, after 25 years, after a lifetime for my husband, we have to leave. In the end, it wasn’t the high taxes, constant road construction or high crime. It wasn’t the unchecked gang violence or political cronyism. In the end, we have to leave because of the hate you are willing to tolerate.
I’d like to say, it’s not you, it’s me—but Chicago, I’ve got to be honest . . . it’s you. You’ve changed. You are no longer the nose-to-the-grindstone hardworking Democratic City of the Big Shoulders. You have a Trump-sized chip on that big shoulder, and it has turned you into a city of fear, hate and division. A city that encourages political bullying.
