  • Police plead for help IDing gunman after 5 killed at Washington mall

    09/24/2016 1:55:49 PM PDT · by Eleutheria5 · 75 replies
    Police pleaded with the public for help identifying a gunman who fled after killing four women and a man at a Washington state mall Friday night. As authorities determine a motive, they said Saturday that there was no immediate evidence the attack was terror-related. The suspect, dressed in a black T-shirt and black shorts, was seen on surveillance footage at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, about 65 miles north of Seattle, where he opened fire inside a Macy's department store. Authorities don't know his whereabouts or identity, but believe he is a Hispanic man in his 20s or 30s. "Hopefully...

    Corporate America is learning a lesson: Don’t cross Donald Trump. One year ago, Trump upended American politics when he declared he was a candidate for president. Macy’s promptly declared it was cutting ties and dumping Trump’s clothing line because of “disparaging” remarks about Mexicans. Trump fired back, declaring the company supports illegal immigration. His supporters even shredded their Macy’s credit cards and tens of thousands called to complain about the company’s cave to political correctness. Trump himself also called for a boycott of the company. [snip]

    Macy's dismal first-quarter results are bringing back unwelcome memories of the financial crisis, as the retailer on Wednesday reported two metrics that harken back to that period of economic malaise. During the first quarter, the department store chain said its comparable sales fell 5.6 percent. That marks a deceleration from its fourth-quarter same-store sales decline of 4.3 percent, and represents its most severe decrease in this metric since the second quarter of 2009. During that quarter, Macy's comparable sales slid 9.5 percent. Meanwhile, the retailer reported a 36 percent year-over-year drop in operating income. That not only marks its seventh...

    Major retailers in the United States are shutting down hundreds of stores, and shoppers are reporting alarmingly bare shelves in many retail locations that are still open all over the country.

As economic activity slows down and Internet retailers capture more of the market, brick and mortar retailers are cutting their losses. This is especially true in areas that are on the lower portion of the income scale. In impoverished urban centers all over the nation,...

    Trump had a high-profile feud with Macy's shortly after he launched his presidential campaign in June with a fiery campaign speech in which he accused the Mexican government of sending rapists and murderers across the border. Macy's was among several corporations to sever financial ties with Trump amid the resulting firestorm. The store said it would phase out its Trump-branded ties, dress shirts, and "Success" fragrance. Trump responded by calling for a boycott of the store and retweeted his supporters who said they were cutting up their Macy's credit cards.

The contest is partially owned by Trump. Trump, a 2016 presidential candidate, has faced searing criticism and lost numerous business deals since his comments about Mexicans during his campaign announcement earlier this month.

This morning edition of the San Francisco Chronicle website (which reflects the newspaper’s front page to some extent) gives prominent placement to Trump’s contention that the murder of Kathryn Steinle shows that he’s right. And the digital-only SFGate site gives him even more prominent play, using an unflattering picture. update:...

    Indomitable Donald Trump, the pompously outspoken American business mogul, investor, and television personality who recently announced his bid for the 2016 presidential race candidate has finally met his waterloo, and it was not about Barack Obama. His bigmouth has finally landed him in a provocative political terrain – trouncing a presidential ambition that has only been announced. Trump, a Republican presidential entrant was announcing his readiness last month when he made some horrible remarks about Mexicans. His comments were obviously offensive. He said in part that “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that...

    Media Matters is a 501(c)(3), and the lawful restrictions on its political activities are listed above. I’m sure a check of Carusone’s IP addresses will confirm that he is using Media Matters’computers while on his paid on-the-clock employee time, and a search of other records will prove he is also using Media Matters’ phones and other resources to run the #DumpTrump campaign, which is illegal, as you can read here at the IRS website. However, if Trump hasn’t yet formally filed, the restriction on “any statements against candidates” may not apply. But if they do, Trump should sue. Excerpted from...

    Donald Trump has stirred up controversy in recent days for claiming “rapists” and “killers” are migrating over the United States’ southern border. Univision and NBC Universal cut ties with Trump this past week, refusing to air the “Miss Universe” pageant he partially owns as a result, and Macy’s announced Wednesday it was also discontinuing his clothing line. But Trump was right. Rapists are crossing over into the US southern border. And officials are finding rape trees. Women’s undergarments hang in a tree near the US reported on this tragic development in 2009: “From beheading to kidnappings, there seems to...

    Fox News ^ | July 3rd, 2015 | By Howard Kurtz
    The first time I interviewed Donald Trump, back in 1987, he said this: “When I go up to New Hampshire -- I'm not running for president, by the way -- I get the best crowd, the best of everything in terms of reception. “The politicians go up and get a moderate audience. I go up, and they're scalping tickets. You heard that? They're scalping tickets. Why? Because people don't want to be ripped off, and this country is being ripped off. I think if I ran, I'd win.” He has been honing this act for a long time. Many pundits—some...

    Real-estate mogul and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump called for a boycott of Macy's on Wednesday after the retail company said it would drop Trump's products. Earlier in the day, Macy's said it was snubbing Trump because of the "disparaging characterizations" he made about Mexican immigrants during his campaign launch. Among other things, Trump accused Mexico of sending its "rapists" and drug dealers to the US. In addition to blasting Macy's in an official statement, Trump attacked Macy's in a series of tweets for being "weak on border security" Read more:

    Unless, you've been living under a rock watching only Fox news in a cave, you haven't felt the wrath of Latinos and Hispanics in social media, a raging "radio bemba," the term for Latino word of mouth. Once adored and imitated by many, today, Donald Trump, is hated and scolded by major media moguls and celebrities alike for his anti-Mexican comments. Former Miss USA co-host Roselyn Sánchez and Christian De La Fuente have publicly condemned Donald Trump for his behavior and have withdrawn their support from the competition. Natalie La Rose will no longer be performing at the Miss USA...

    Donald Trump’s comments about Mexican immigrants during his presidential campaign announcement may be costing him a growing of number of business relationships, but they also appear to have given him a bump in the polls. According to the results of a CNN/ORC survey released Wednesday, Trump, at 12 percent, sits second behind former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (19 percent) in the race for the Republican nomination. The real estate mogul has jumped 9 points since his announcement, the poll found. Trump and Bush are the only two candidates on the GOP side to see double-digit support among Republicans and Republican-leaning...
