  • Threats are preventing Rep. Frederica Wilson from voting in Washington

    MSN ^ | Alex Daugherty, McClatchy Washington Bureau
    Congressional Democrats celebrated Rep. Frederica Wilson on Wednesday by wearing stickers adorned with a red cowboy hat and posing for a group picture on the steps of the Capitol. But one notable person was missing: Wilson herself. A source close to Wilson confirmed that the Florida Democrat was not in Washington this week due to ongoing threats against her after she criticized President Donald Trump's handling of a conversation with the family of Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed during an Oct. 4 ambush in Niger. Congressional vote tallies show that Wilson last voted Oct. 12, before the House...

    FULL TITLE: Colin Kaerpernick 'has hired celebrity lawyer Mark Geragos to sue NFL owners for colluding against hiring him' Colin Kaepernick will sue NFL owners for not hiring him after he kicked off the controversial practice of kneeling for the national anthem, reports claim. 'I am told that @Kaepernick7 has filed a grievance under the CBA for collusion against the owners. If accurate, this is huge,' Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman wrote on Twitter. Kaepernick, 29, has retained Mark Geragos, who has represented Michael Jackson, Chris Brown and Winona Ryder, among others, and is expected to release a statement soon. Scroll...

    09/20/2017 7:07:44 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 35 replies
    An Illinois man will be awarded thousands of dollars after he settled his lawsuit against the Urbana Police Department, which arrested him last year after he posted a photo of himself burning the American flag. After the settlement, he again shared on social media a photo of himself with the flag on fire. Bryton Mellott, Urbana, will receive $15,000, plus an additional $20,000 for legal fees in the settlement, the AP reports. Mellott—who was represented by the American Civil Liberties Union—was arrested on July 4 of last year. He was reportedly detained for five hours, but charges were not filed....

    Former Deputy Adviser to the President Dr. Sebastian Gorka discussed his exit from the White House with SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Thursday’s Breitbart News Daily. Gorka said the simple version of the reason he resigned is that “people like myself, people like Steve Bannon, came into the building because of a very clear agenda, which was the MAGA agenda, Make America Great Again — and, in the last seven months, we’ve seen people who really had nothing to do with MAGA, who weren’t affiliated with the campaign, rise in influence inside the building.” “The issues that I was brought...

    Valerie Plame Wilson, the undercover CIA operations officer unmasked in July 2003, wants to buy a controlling share of Twitter. Her reason for doing so is to prevent President Trump from using the social media platform.Plame Wilson was an undercover operative specializing in weapons of mass destruction for the CIA before influential columnist Robert D. Novak exposed her and her husband, Joseph Wilson. Plame Wilson had previously been critical of then President George W. Bush’s statements about Iraq’s purchase of nuclear weapons-grade uranium and accused members of the Bush administration of conspiring to destroy her career by breaking a 1982...

    Caitlyn Jenner did not wear a "Make America Great Again" hat Thursday as a show of support for Donald Trump ... it was a mistake tied to golf, a convertible, Starbucks and a purse. Caitlyn tells TMZ she drove from her Malibu home to Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, CA, in a 1960 Austin-Healey convertible. Before leaving home she realized she needed a hat ... something better than a golf visor to protect her hair. So she rummaged through the 10 hats in her closet and grabbed one without looking at the stitching. She says when she got to...

    A retired Navy SEAL Team 6 hero who is transgender had a message for President Donald Trump after he announced the US military would bar transgender people from serving. "Let's meet face to face and you tell me I'm not worthy," Kristin Beck, a 20-year veteran of the Navy SEALs, told Business Insider on Wednesday. "Transgender doesn't matter. Do your service." Beck said Trump's abrupt change in policy could negatively affect many currently or wanting to serve in the military. The RAND Corporation estimated in 2016 that there were between 1,320 and 6,630 transgender people serving. Many of them just...

    Donald Trump consigliere, Roger Stone, was reportedly in a car accident. Stone appears to have escaped mostly unscathed, tweeting about the close call Wednesday afternoon. Stone said he suspected foul play was at work. “It didn’t seem like an accident to me,” Stone told the site. “I am a consistent critic of the Deep State that’s why I think I’m targeted.” Stone was reportedly headed to the hospital.

  • How fitting! Obama breaks with modern tradition for final White House Christmas card

    …a choice that breaks from a modern tradition of featuring images of the White House on the card. . . . Malia and Sasha “dazzle” in elegant, embroidered gowns designed by Naeem Khan, that are worth nearly $20,000. Each. There’s not much of a Christmas-y feel to the card, other than being framed by Christmas holly clipart. Fittingly, Bill Clinton was the first modern president to use a family photo on a White House Christmas card in 1993. You have to go back to Franklin D. Roosevelt — another Democrat — to find another family portrait in use.

    Dr. Jill Stein, along with her campaign staff and fellow Green Partiers, came all the way to Trump Tower this morning to blast his “anti-verification campaign” and tell him to stop spreading false information her recount efforts in three swing states. Early Monday morning, the Stein campaign announced that a federal judge in Michigan granted the campaign’s emergency request to immediately start the statewide recount. On Nov. 28, the campaign said Pennsylvanian voters filed recount requests in more than 260 precincts across the state and two days ago that it would file for emergency relief in federal court to demand...

They are attacking Muslims — Muslim women, snatching their scarves, in New York, in Los Angeles. Mosques are being attacked by people throwing things. And that needs to stop," Khan said, but did not follow up with specific examples.
