  • Burlington is the latest retailer to drop Ivanka Trump's brand online

    02/13/2017 10:12:24 AM PST · by bryan999 · 62 replies
    The discount retailer Burlington Coat Factory no longer sells products from Ivanka Trump's brand online. As of Friday, the retailer's website doesn't show a stock of Ivanka Trump accessories and clothing. The change comes amid news of several retailers dropping the first daughter's line in the last two weeks, including Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Gilt. Burlington was selling 13 items from Ivanka's fashion line as of Tuesday, according to Shannon Coulter, the brand strategist who started the #GrabYourWallet boycott of Trump products. Since October, Coulter has charted which retailers do business with the Trump family on the Grab Your Wallet...
  • Despite mall shooter’s “SubhanAllah” post and admiration for ISIS caliph, police search for motive

    Jihad Watch ^ | 9/26/16 | Robert Spencer
    He had a history of violence and sexual abuse of women -- almost as if he grew up in a culture that revered violence and thought of non-Muslim women as "uncovered meat." He posted admiration for al-Baghdadi and Khamenei and a call for Muslims to repeat "SubhanAllah" multiple times. Maybe he wasn't a jihadi and there is some mitigating explanation for all of this. When authorities refuse to discuss it and appear to dismiss it out of hand, however, it only reinforces the impression that there is some deliberate effort to cover up jihad attacks -- an impression that authorities...
  • Vanity: As a Hispanic, I am OUTRAGED! (Cascade Mall killer was Muslim, not Hispano or Latino!)

    Self ^ | 9/25/16 | Self
    As a Hispanic woman, I am OUTRAGED that the news media reported that the killer, a Muslim Turk (Arcan Cetin) was branded a Hispanic, Latino, and even insofar as a "gang member" when, all along, he was "shouting" something (according to witnesses), which, according to Pam Geller, "we all know what that is". When are Hispanic groups going to be outraged about this? When are CNN, MSNBC and the Enemedia going to apologize for Hispanics? This is a new low in journalism and in fairly reporting the "news".

    On Tuesday night, my daughter and her friends went down to Claremont, New Hampshire to see Donald Trump in action. She and her chums range from the not terribly political to those with the usual enthusiasms of youth, so they went mainly because Trump's a hot ticket, and we don't get a lot of those in the Granite State. Her only other candidate encounter this season was at the North Haverhill Fair last summer when Lindsey Graham pounced outside the 4-H barn, no doubt with an eye to recruiting her for one of his "rotating first ladies".
  • Cops Shocked by Snow-Covered Car on the Road in Massachusetts

    That’s what you might call a restricted view. Police in Massachusetts were shocked when they spotted this car on the road in Wellesley. They quickly pulled the driver over Wednesday to point out they may need to clear their windshield of snow. And when they shared the picture on Twitter, neighboring force Burlington Police asked if perhaps the driver was wearing glasses with x-ray vision. “That is very…special. Were they driving with these?” they replied on the social media site. Police departments in the area have been warning drivers to clear windshields and roofs of snow and ice before hitting...

    Previously unpublished data from the last big election in Burlington, Vt., reveals a significant number of votes were cast by individuals whose names were not on the statewide checklist.

As previously reported, votes by individuals whose names don’t appear on the checklist count whether...
