    NFL owners, players and league executives, about 30 in all, convened urgently at the league’s headquarters in New York City in October, nearly a month after President Donald Trump began deriding the league and its players over protests during the national anthem. “Let’s make sure that we keep this confidential,” Commissioner Roger Goodell said to begin the session. The New York Times has obtained an audio recording of the roughly three-hour meeting, and several people in the room corroborated details of the gathering. New England Patriots owner Robert K. Kraft pointed to another “elephant in the room.” “This kneeling,” he...

    (CNSNews.com) - California Gov. Jerry Brown predicted that if carbon emissions aren’t reduced, billions of people will die from “heat events,” and one billion will be subjected to vector diseases. “When you pick up the paper or turn on cable news, you’d think it’s another planet. It’s all about the nonsense of Washington, and carbon emissions are growing, and we’ve got to radically turn that around, or the migrations you’re seeing now are going to be child’s play,” Brown told reporters Tuesday at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. “We’re going to have widespread disruption, more conflicts, more terrorism,...

    Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani announced his decision to join President Donald Trump’s legal team as the Russia investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller continues. “I’m doing it because I hope we can negotiate an end to this for the good of the country and because I have high regard for the president and for Bob Mueller,” Giuliani said in an interview with the Washington Post. Counsel to the President Jay Sekulow confirmed the news in a statement to reporters. “I have had the privilege of working with Mayor Giuliani for many years, and we welcome his expertise,” he...

    Former 49ers quarterback remains unsigned after high-profile protestThe Seattle Seahawks reportedly postponed a tryout with free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick after he wouldn’t rule out kneeling during the national anthem. The Seahawks organization is still considering holding a workout with Kaepernick, who sat out the 2017 NFL season without a contract following a season in which he emerged as the leader of the player take-a-knee activism. After making arrangements for the tryout two weeks ago, “the trip was unexpectedly scuttled over the Seahawks’ last-minute stipulation regarding Kaepernick’s anthem stance,” according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, citing a source. “The source said the...

    Sending troops to the border not only violates American law, it is the least politically savvy play the president could make. Donald Trump is threatening to place soldiers on the U.S.-Mexico border to face off against a thousand-strong caravan of Central Americans who started in Honduras and are slowly winding their way through Mexico and plan to enter los Estados Unidos. And I can’t wait: Those refugees need Marines to protect them from ICE agents. Our Coast Guard should have bulk tents, water, food and showers for everyone who shows up. And who better than Uncle Sam’s troops to offer...

    When we checked in with Newsweek last week, the magazine had just published a news article critical of the magazine’s owners. That article only saw the light of day after a number of reporters and editors threatened to quit if it were spiked. It came after two top editors were fired and a raid based on an investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney. Today, the Daily Beast reports the struggling magazine is unable to pay its rent and may face eviction. Guardian Life Insurance, the sub-landlord for the company’s downtown Manhattan office, informed International Business Times Inc. in late November...

Police said d'Baha was shot in the thigh early Tuesday morning and transported to a nearby hospital where he died from his injuries.

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Activists protesting police brutality chained themselves along a light-rail line carrying ticketholders to the Super Bowl on Sunday, halting trains in both directions. Metro Transit’s Green Line was shut down a little after 2 p.m., about three hours before kickoff, by a group of about 30 activists at the Stadium Village station. Transit spokesman Howie Padilla said the agency had a contingency plan to get ticketholders to the game on time. Chinyere Tutashinda, a spokeswoman for the activists, said they were also protesting authorities’ decision to dedicate the city’s two light-rail lines to Super Bowl ticketholders on...
  • Eating some sandwiches causes global warming, UK scientists say

    Can the simple act of eating a sandwich really be bad for the environment? New research by British scientists suggests a shocking response: Depends on the sandwich. Researchers at the University of Manchester Thursday announced the results of what they claim to be "the first ever study looking at the carbon footprint of sandwiches, both home-made and pre-packaged." Perhaps not surprisingly, the results are bad news for meat-eaters. The study found that sandwiches containing pork meat (that's bacon, ham and sausage), cheese and prawns contained the highest carbon footprints. The worst of the lot, the so-called "all-day breakfast" sandwich containing...

    Olivia Munn may be a celebrity in her own right, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t get starstruck. The 37-year-old Newsroom actress walked the red carpet at the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards Sunday, gushing to E! News during their pre-show about the time she met Oprah Winfrey. It all went down in the bathroom at the Soho House. “She was coming out of the stall,” Munn recalled of the 63-year-old talk show host. “At the Soho House, there’s a window and not mirrors. And I see her in the reflection so I’m washing my hands not saying anything.”

    The Sunday after Thanksgiving often coincides with what Catholics know as the First Sunday in Advent. This year things are different because Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday and will double as the Fourth Sunday in Advent. Going back to its religious roots, Advent is a time of waiting for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus Christ, and for most Germans that first Sunday is the official “kick off” to the holiday season. It is common for families to have a beautifully decorated tabletop wreath with four candles in their homes, and one additional candle being lit every Sunday...
  • ABC News Suspends Brian Ross for 4 Weeks Without Pay: ‘Effective Immediately’

    ABC News has announced that Brian Ross would be suspended for four weeks without pay “effective immediately.” “It is vital we get the story right and retain the trust we have built with our audience – these are our core principles. We fell far short of that yesterday,” the network said in a statement on Saturday. “Effective immediately, Brian Ross will be suspended for four weeks without pay.” Ross came under considerable fire on Friday after he erroneously reported on live television that then-candidate Donald Trump had instructed Michael Flynn to make contact with the Russians.

    This week, families across our state are unboxing their Thanksgiving décor, choosing table cloths, and deciding who is going to be responsible for what dish this coming Thursday. It’s that time of the year when we communities come together, put family disputes aside and get in the holiday spirit. Unfortunately, this holiday season comes with a different taste for many as hundreds of Iowa families will eat their Thanksgiving meals with uncertainty, anxiety and fear. The lives of hundreds of families across our states are at risk thanks to Donald Trump’s draconian immigration policies. Many of your immigrant friends and...

    After a week of non-stop media hits and allegations be several women of inappropriate conduct 38 years ago — Republican Judge Roy Moore is now down by 8 points in the latest FOX News poll. Despite the allegations it is still stunning that Alabama Republicans would vote for a committed anti-American Socialist to represent them in the US Senate. Judge Moore has a lot of work to do between now and the election on December 12th. The Gloria Allred tactics of personal destruction appear to be working for Democrats.

    Yeah, Sessions is part of the Swamp. Really meanie-old FReepers, really? One of the greatest statesmen in modern American political history. Accomplished AG in both Alabama and now in the DoJ. Senator. And has been the point man on immigration, rule of law, and sovereignty, is suddenly a Swamp mole designed to destroy Trump? So, Sessions should give press conferences every five minutes on what he's doing? Provide leaks to the very same Swamp and Fake News Media that's trying to destroy his boss? Excuse me, he's not the DOJ solely by himself. Um, he has staff. Underlings. Associates. You...

    Jared Kushner, President Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law, is registered to vote in New York State as a woman, state records show. The New Jersey native first registered to vote in the Empire State in November 2009 as a female, records first discovered by the liberal-leaning American Bridge group. It wasn’t immediately clear what happened that Kushner was registered as a woman, and was an active voter as of this November. The 36-year-old real estate developer has been tasked with reforming the government and moderating a peace plan in the Middle East. “Kushner can't even fill out the most basic...
