    According to Twitters rule against ‘hateful conflict’, a user”may not promote violence against, or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.” With that in mind, here’s what Erickson tweeted that resulted in his suspension. “Elizabeth Warren set to introduce the Wrecking American Prosperity Under Marxism, or WAMPUM ACT, wherein she gives everything away for free”

    “Those manufacturers who mainly sell to Europe and the United States need to start taking pain killers again,” said exporter Liao Yu, who produces bags and suitcases in Dongguan. “The cost of relocation is very high for small factories of our kind. But if you don’t move, how do you digest the tariffs? A 25 per cent [tariff] will kill everyone. Meanwhile, European and American customers are now using more suppliers in Southeast Asia to replace us. Trump is just a killer.” “We thought our products would be safe and excluded from the list [subject to US tariffs]. But Trump...

    Former FBI Director James Comey said Thursday that "it sure looks like" President Donald Trump had criminal intent to commit obstruction of justice during special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. At a CNN town hall in Washington, Anderson Cooper asked Comey whether, based on the redacted version of Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election, he believed Trump had criminal intent to commit obstruction. "It sure looks like he did, in connection with a couple episodes -- the direction to (former White House counsel) Don McGahn to get the special counsel fired is to my mind a flaming example"...

    Democrat Stacey Abrams said she is comfortable saying "I won" the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election because "something happened" regarding voter suppression to push Republican Brian Kemp to victory. In an interview with New York Times Magazine, Abrams said she continues to claim victory because of the "totality of information" about the election and also because she transformed the Georgia electorate. Abrams lost by nearly 55,000 votes to Kemp in the closest Georgia governor's race in decades, but she earned nearly 50,000 more votes than Hillary Clinton did in the state in 2016 and won more votes than any Democrat in...

    Former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said Thursday that he would rather see a Democrat win in 2020 than have President Trump elected to a second term. Flake made his comments at a debate in New York hosted by the nonprofit Intelligence Squared. Flake and New York Times columnist Bret Stephens argued that the GOP should not renominate Trump, while Liz Peek and former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach backed the president. Moderator John Donvan asked Flake if he would rather see Trump lose if he is the party's standard-bearer in 2020. "Are you willing to lose a cycle for...

    A freshman Democrat in the House on Monday insisted that there is "suspicious" evidence that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation "was not covering" related to President Trump's administration that could come back to haunt him.“We have the evidence over the last two years that the Mueller investigation was not covering that is highly, highly suspicious,” Rep. Katie Hill (D-Calif.), a member of the House Oversight Committee, told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on "New Day." Hill cited ongoing controversies and questions relating to White House officials’ security clearances, the possible sale of nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia and separation of migrant children...

    Conservative firebrand Ann Coulter called President Trump “lazy and incompetent” and a “lunatic” and warned that he could face a Republican primary challenger from the right if he doesn’t fulfill his promise to build a wall across the Mexican border. “We put this lunatic in the White House for one reason. Instead, Coulter claimed, he can simply use his inherent authority as commander in chief to direct that the wall be built in order to “protect” United States citizens and “defend” the country from illegal immigrants. “He doesn’t need to declare an emergency” to build the wall, Coulter said, claiming...

    As a second partial government shutdown looms in Washington over border discussions, Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday will order the removal of roughly 360 National Guard members from California’s southern boundary with Mexico, repudiating President Trump’s characterization of a recent influx of Central American refugees and migrants as a national security crisis. The announcement comes just one day before the governor delivers his first State of the State address Tuesday, setting the stage for Newsom to counter Trump’s State of the Union address from last week.

    Conservative commentator Ann Coulter, who until recently was one of President Donald Trump’s most outspoken supporters, ripped his State of the Union speech on Tuesday as “the lamest, sappiest, most intentionally tear-jerking SOTU ever.” Coulter live-tweeted her thoughts during the nearly 90-minute speech, in which Trump appealed for unity in Washington amid gridlock over border security funding that threatens to trigger yet another government shutdown. The 57-year-old pundit blasted Trump for barely touching on the wall during his speech.

This is New Orleans response to not being in the Super Bowl after a no-call on pass interference against Rams that cost the team the NFC Championship and the Super Bowl. More than 3 thousand attended for this anti-super bowl event, and organizers say it’s the largest in the state. The event had concerts with major entertainment including Louisiana’s very own Rockin’...

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A quest by two New Orleans Saints ticketholders to force a full or partial do-over of this year's NFC championship game because of a blown "no-call" by game officials was rejected Thursday by a federal judge. Officials failed to call interference or roughness penalties when a Rams player leveled a Saints receiver with a helmet-to-helmet hit at a crucial point in the final minutes of regulation time. The Rams won the Jan. 20 game in overtime and are set to play the New England Patriots in Sunday's Super Bowl in Atlanta. Fan reaction in New Orleans...

    Before vetoing House Bill 228, Gov. John Kasich expressed frustration Wednesday about how politics have blocked him from passing a "Red Flag Law," allowing the courts to take away a person's gun if he or she is unstable, and the growing connection with public shootings. "It never existed in America and we can't do anything because of rotten, stinkin' politics," Kasich said. Then, he commented about House Bill 228. "So, why would I sign a bill that gives more power to the gun advocates," he said. "I hate to jump on the bash-Kasich bandwagon, but in this case, he's really...
