    <p>Joey Salads, the viral YouTube personality who did the experiment, said bystanders did nothing to stop the group instead opting to cheer them on with 'F*ck Trump' chants.</p> <p>JOEY SALADS: As you can see from this video, the black community is very violent towards Trump and his supporters. As I was filming this video, there were people shouting out their windows, 'F*** Trump.' After filming I talked to some of the spectators who are black, who said that they did low-key support Trump, but they were afraid of the backlash from their community.</p>

    NY Times ^ | 31 January 2016 | By Nick Corasaniti and Alexander Burns
    Donald J. Trump has criticized Gov. John R. Kasich of Ohio at numerous debates, including for his tenure as a managing general partner at a bank that was central to the financial crisis. Now, America Leads, the “super PAC” supporting Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey is putting some money behind Mr. Trump’s accusations in a withering attack ad aimed at Mr. Kasich. It begins with Mr. Kasich saying “I was a banker and I was proud of it,” before cutting to Mr. Trump’s criticism, and rifling through Mr. Kasich’s record as both a congressman and a businessman, accusing him...

    I'm A Lonesome Polecat - Seven Brides for Seven Brothershttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9-jbBbjLUc Lyricist Johnny Mercer said that the musical numbers were written at Kidd's behest, as an example "of how a songwriter sometimes has to take his cue from his collaborators." For example, Kidd explained to Mercer and dePaul his conception of the "Lonesome Polecat" number, the lament of the brothers for the women, and the two worked out the music and lyrics. To perform the electrifying dance numbers and grueling action sequences, choreographer Michael Kidd wanted dancers to portray all six of Adam Pontipee's rough and tumble brothers. Kidd said...

    Telegraph ^ | July 22, 2015
    A teenager has survived after falling 100ft off a cliff then being bitten by a venomous snake at the bottom. Brock Leach, 14, tumbled over a cliff edge and bounced off outcroppings and rocks during his descent - before landing on a ledge. But as he tried to clamber to safety before the tide came in Brock suddenly felt a sharp pain in the hand he'd been using to help pull himself along. He was horrified to discover he had been bitten by an adder - the only native venomous snake in the UK. The fall was witnessed by his...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's two brothers, Tony and Hugh Rodham, could be a problem for her presidential campaign. Over the years, the pair have been at the center of multiple controversies for their business dealings and Republicans are already using them to attack Clinton. One aide for a rival 2016 campaign aide told Business Insider Clinton's brothers will definitely cause issues for her White House bid. "Will they be a problem? Yes. They underscore everything that people fear and hate about the Clintons," the aide said. "They're essentially the id of Bill and Hillary Clinton. A bunch of...

    ">Did Jesus Have Fleshly Half-Brothers? by Dave Miller, Ph.D. The usual word in the Greek language for brother is adelphos. It possesses the same latitude of application that the English word possesses. Hence, it can refer to a person who shares the same religion (a spiritual brother). It can refer to a person who shares the same citizenshipa fellow countryman. It can refer to an intimate friend or neighbor. All of these uses are self-evident, and do not encroach upon the literal use of the term. By far the most prominent use of the term is the literal sensea blood...

    Politico ran an interesting article last Friday about the apparent stall of momentum on immigration reform that was assumed to be on the way to a reasonable compromise just a few months ago. It begins, naturally, with an assault on the liberal immigration reform groups for speaking out of turn and making the president angry with their incessant demands. Hes quoted as saying If you take the pressure off of them and put it on me, youll guarantee that there is no legislation. Evidently he actually believed that the Republicans would respond to pressure from Hispanic rights groups. (One might...

    First they lost their television show. Now the Benham brothers say they are losing their business. SunTrust Banks is cutting ties with would-be reality stars David and Jason Benham after liberal activists attacked them for their conservative views on abortion and gay marriage, The Daily Caller has learned.

The move comes just a week after HGTV announced it was canceling a planned home...

    **SNIP** The KochPAC gave almost $200,000 to Democratic candidates and committees, including just most recently in 2010. This included a $30,000 donation to the DSCC. But isnt it funny how top Democrats like Harry Reid harp on how the Kochs are ruining politics and complain about their partisan allegiances? Since 2000 KochPAC has given more than $1.4 million to Democratic candidates, leadership PACs and committees. Whos partisan now? Now, this is not to say that the Kochs havent been a huge part of funding Republican ideas, but it must be awfully frustrating for them to have people constantly criticizing them....

    BOSTON (AP) Lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev say a remark he made to his sister during a prison visit was meant to be funny and wasn't incriminating, as prosecutors have suggested. In court documents filed Wednesday, Tsarnaev's lawyers responded to a claim by prosecutors that Tsarnaev made a remark "to his detriment" while his sister was visiting him. The remark was overheard by an FBI agent who was in the room monitoring the visit because of special prison restrictions placed on Tsarnaev. Neither side has revealed what Tsarnaev said, but are arguing over whether to lift...

    President Barack Obama (pictured) has been aggressively pushing an agenda that strengthens the core of the nation via education, job creation, and supporting middle class families. Now the administration will turn its aim to improve the lives of young men of color via an initiative titled My Brothers Keeper. Although the President has shied away from race matters in the past, there has been an undeniable shift in focus from the White House regarding the plight of young people of color who have been disproportionately slammed by poverty, lack of opportunity, and unfair prison sentences. According to a Washington Post...

    Are they righting a wrong or wronging the Wrights? The Connecticut Senate passed a bill Tuesday evening that would delete the Wright brothers from history, explicitly stripping recognition for the first powered flight from Orville and Wilbur and assigning it to someone else. The Governor shall proclaim a date certain in each year as Powered Flight Day to honor the first powered flight by [the Wright brothers] Gustave Whitehead and to commemorate the Connecticut aviation and aerospace industry, reads House Bill No. 6671, which now sits on the governors desk awaiting passage into law. "Theres no question that the Wright...

    The people of Los Angeles would be up in arms if some out-of-town billionaires tried to buy the Dodgers and institute a rule that only right-handers could play on the team. Petitions would be signed, protests would be organized and politicians would rise up to condemn the sale. It would be nice if there were a similar outcry at the prospect of the Koch brothers buying the Los Angeles Times. After all, as exciting as it may be for a city to have a major league sports team, a good newspaper is a far more valuable asset.

    The conclusion reached by DEBKAfiles counterterrorism and intelligence sources is that the brothers were double agents, hired by US and Saudi intelligence to penetrate the Wahhabi jihadist networks which, helped by Saudi financial institutions, had spread across the restive Russian Caucasian. Instead, the two former Chechens betrayed their mission and went secretly over to the radical Islamist networks.
