    A Missouri state senator said in a now-deleted Facebook post that she hopes President Donald Trump is assassinated. Maria Chappelle-Nadal acknowledged on Thursday that she wrote a post which read: “I hope Trump is assassinated!” She made the comment in an exchange with a left-wing activist who claimed that his cousin is a Secret Service agent.
  • Analysis- Trump puts a fine point on it: He sides with the alt-right in Charlottesville

    Washington Post ^ | 8-15-17 | Philip Bump
    It was inevitable that President Trump’s brief news conference on Tuesday concerning national infrastructure would, instead, be redirected to a discussion of the violent protest in Charlottesville this past weekend and his delayed criticism of the racist and pro-Nazi groups that were central to it. It did not seem inevitable, though, that Trump’s responses to questions about those protests would cement as correct the general interpretation of his first comments on the matter: He’s sympathetic to the goals of the men who marched Saturday night carrying Confederate and Nazi flags — and even to the “peaceful” torchlight protest on Friday...
  • Exclusive: Caught red-handed? Web bug found in emails sent by embattled CNN reporter (Kaczynski)

    MediaEqualizer ^ | 7 Jul 2017 | Jeff Reynolds
    In an attempt to unmask anonymous tipsters, did an embattled CNN reporter use a phishing tactic to gather private information? Andrew Kaczynski appears to be a serial doxxer. The former Buzzfeed contributor and current host of CNN’s KFile has been implicated in another attempt to reveal the identity of online sources. By seeming to plant foreign web bugs into personal emails, a common phishing tactic used to determine IP address, location, and other identifying information, new questions have been raised regarding ethical practices inside the troubled news network. A recent email exchange with an anonymous conservative group has been obtained...

In the past 48 hours, two of the leading Trump resistance groups have called for the first time for the impeachment process to start against Trump on charges of obstruction of Justice.

    Forget Russia, CNN is stuck in Siberia. Reporter Jim Acosta made note of the fact that his network was relegated to the “Siberia” section of the Rose Garden during President Trump’s press conference with Romanian president Klaus Iohannis Friday, quickly adding, “no pun intended.” “The question has be to be raised whether or not this White House was retaliating against CNN,” Acosta later told Wolf Blitzer during an on-air crosstalk.

    Seniors at Noblesville High School will graduate on this year with a valedictorian and salutatorian. But soon, that tradition of honoring the school's top two students by GPA will disappear. Officials from Noblesville Schools say the class of 2019 will be the last class at Noblesville to honor both. Starting in 2020, instead of the valedictorian giving a speech, a distinguished class representative will give the speech after an audition process. Students with a GPA of 3.5 or higher will be honored with a special cord during the commencement ceremony

    Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz subpoenaed two agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to appear before his committee in connection with the Obama Administration’s gun-running program, Fast and Furious. Firearms from the former president’s scheme were allegedly involved in the 2011 murder of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jaime Zapata in Mexico. Chaffetz, who serves as chairman of the House Oversight Committee issued the subpoenas after the two ATF agents failed to appear voluntarily before the committee. “I’m tired of hearing from just [Justice Department] management, I want to hear from the people that actually are...

    AP ^ | March 3, 2017 | ADRIANA GOMEZ LICON
    Not only is the Mexican government not building a wall; it's spending $50 million to beef up its legal aid to migrants who fear deportation, a response to President Donald Trump's crackdown on illegal immigration. All 50 Mexican consulates in the U.S. on Friday launched legal assistance centers to form partnerships with nonprofit groups and tap lawyers to help those fearing Trump's policies. SNIP-- Miami's Mexican consul general, Jose Antonio Zabalgoitia, said Friday that these centers would become "authentic advocates of the rights of Mexican migrants." "What changes today is that we are prioritizing legal matters over everything. Previously, we...

    Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted today announced that his office has identified an additional 385 non-citizens registered to vote in Ohio, 82 of whom have been identified as having voted in at least one election. This brings the total number of non-citizens on Ohio’s voter rolls Secretary Husted has been able to identify using available resources to 821, with 126 of those individuals having actually cast ballots.  Secretary Husted is the first of the Ohio’s chief elections officials to initiate a review of Ohio’s Statewide Registered Voter Database (SWRVD) to identify non-citizens on the voter rolls.

    CNN ^ | 2-23-2017 | Jill Filipovic
    In his press conference last week, in which President Trump ranted and raved that he wasn't ranting and raving, he answered a question about his wife, Melania. "That's what I call a very nice question," he said, apparently relieved to stop talking about his own policies, before saying the first lady feels very strongly about "women's issues" and "women's difficulties." Trump didn't specify what these "issues" and "difficulties" might be. One presumes that, despite the phrasing, he probably meant things like equal pay and health care, and not what old men usually mean when they cryptically speak about our "difficulties."...

    Rolling Stone ^ | 2-24-2017 | Daniel Kreps
    Lana Del Rey has joined a nationwide occult effort that seeks to remove President Donald Trump from office through the power of witchcraft. On Thursday, Del Rey mysteriously tweeted, "At the stroke of midnight Feb 24, March 26, April 24, May 23. Ingredients can b found online." While early speculation wondered whether the tweet had something to do with her upcoming LP, those four dates aligned with the lunar calendar's "waning crescent moon ritual dates." Occultists noted that, on those four dates, practitioners of witchcraft would congregate for a mass ritual that would with the hope that their efforts resulted...

    Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) on Thursday signed an executive order blocking state law enforcement agencies from detaining undocumented immigrants at the request of federal officials, days after the Trump administration began ramping up immigration enforcement actions.   Inslee’s order prevents state agencies from discriminating against or refusing service to those in living the country illegally. It also blocks those agencies from spending state resources to create or enforce a registry of citizens on the basis of religious affiliation.   The order blocks the Washington State Patrol and the state Department of Corrections from detaining anyone solely on the basis...

    Shia LaBeouf, Luke Turner and Nastja Säde Rönkkö, creators of the anti-Donald Trump “He Will Not Divide Us” exhibition, have relocated their project after it was shut down by New York’s Museum of the Moving Image earlier this month. In a joint statement posted on LaBeouf’s website, the trio called out the museum for its “lack of commitment to the project.” “On February 10, 2017, The Museum of the Moving Image abandoned HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US. Their evident lack of commitment to the project is damning,” the statement reads. “From the outset, the museum failed to address our concerns about the misleading framing...

    cbsnews ^ | 2-17-2017 | Margaret Brennan, Kylie Atwood
    While Rex Tillerson is on his first overseas trip as Secretary of State, his aides laid off staff at the State Department on Thursday.  Much of seventh-floor staff, who work for the Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources and the Counselor offices, were told today that their services were no longer needed. These staffers in particular are often the conduit between the secretary’s office to the country bureaus, where the regional expertise is centered. Inside the State Department, some officials fear that this is a politically-minded purge that cuts out much-needed expertise from the policy-making, rather than simply...

    Following a truly remarkable press conference by President Donald Trump, CNN’s Jake Tapper weighed in on what we had all witnessed. And he didn’t pull any punches. “Everybody at home needs to ask themselves how would you react if that were your boss coming in and giving a speech to the employees,” Tapper noted. “How would you react if that was somebody in your family that you were trying to have a conversation with? You would think this is very difficult to assess in a positive way.” He continued, “The person is not dealing with the world in which we...

    Omarosa Manigault, a top adviser to President Trump, said she has a recording of a recent contentious exchange with a White House reporter. April Ryan, a veteran White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks (AURN) told The Washington Post she was “physically intimidated” by Manigault after an exchange last week. "She stood right in my face like she was going to hit me,” Ryan told the newspaper. “I said, 'You better back up.' " Now, Manigault says she has a recording of the dispute that was also shared with some other reporters, according to the Post. Ryan said she...
