    Political analyst predicts 25 Dems will run for president in 2020 Political analyst Bill Schneider predicted on Tuesday that 25 Democrats would launch presidential bids to challenge President Trump in 2020. "My guess is that in 2020, we're going to see 25 Democrats running for president. Every Democrat thinks, why not me?" Schneider told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on "What America's Thinking." "I'll take the over. It might be 30," Hill campaign reporter Reid Wilson interjected. "Might be 30. How are you going to have a debate? You're going to have to have six layers of debates. It's going to be...

    Exploration Mission-1, which is scheduled to take place in 2020, will consist of an uncrewed Orion capsule being sent into orbit around the Moon and then returning to Earth. Using lunar gravity to gain speed and propel itself 70,000 km beyond the Moon – and almost half a million km from Earth – this mission will send a spacecraft farther into the Solar System than ever before. The Orion pressure vessel, which is the vehicle’s primary structure that will hold a pressurized atmosphere for the astronauts, consists of seven large aluminum pieces that are welded together using a state-of-the-art process...

    DUDLEY — Police chiefs in Massachusetts have responded angrily to a remark by U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren that the American criminal justice system is “racist ... front to back.” Ms. Warren, a potential Democratic presidential candidate, was speaking before an audience at historically black Dillard University in New Orleans Aug. 3 when she delivered what she called “the hard truth about our criminal justice system: It’s racist ... I mean, front to back.” Ms. Warren cited disproportionate arrests of African-Americans for petty drug possession; an overloaded public defender; and state laws that keep convicted felons from voting even after their...

Neither has been publicly identified. Police said the 32-year-old woman and her boyfriend were arguing at their residence at about 2:15 a.m. when he decided to leave in his car. She followed in her car and ultimately struck his car in
  • Think Confederate monuments are racist? Consider pioneer monuments

    08/09/2018 6:58:38 PM PDT · by Altura Ct. · 13 replies
    In San Francisco, there is an an 800-ton monument that retells California history, from the Spanish missions to American settlement. Several bronze sculptures and relief plaques depict American Indians, white miners, missionaries and settlers. A female figure symbolizing white culture stands atop a massive stone pillar. The design of the “pioneer monument” was celebrated in newspapers across the country when it was erected in 1894. Today, however, apctivists argue that the monument – particularly its depiction of a Spanish missionary and Mexican “vaquero,” or cowboy, towering over an American Indian – is demeaning to American Indians. Should the city take...

    Is it time for martial law in Democrat-run cities? Here’s a sampling of some recent headlines: The Chicago Tribune, May 7: “Chicago sees its most violent week of the year: 9 killed, 76 wounded”; The Baltimore Sun, May 7: “Double shooting of teens is first in series of shootings from Saturday evening through Sunday in Baltimore”; ABC, New Orleans, May 7: “NOPD investigating multiple shootings over the weekend in New Orleans.” Equally alarming as the carnage is how desensitized we’ve become to normalized violence in these culturally rich and historically significant American cities. Just how deadly and dangerous is the...

    The United States is a terrible place. At least that appeared to be the theme of Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s ominous chat at a historically black college on Friday. Warren was part of a Q&A session hosted by Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Cedric Richmond at Dillard University in New Orleans. “Let’s just start with the hard truth about our criminal justice system,” she railed. “It’s racist. It is. And when I say our system, I mean all the way. I mean front to back. This is not just sentencing reform we’re talking about here. We’re talking about the front end on...

    One of President Trump's most vocal critics in the U.S. Senate said Friday that he once cried “tears of rage” over the Trump administration’s rhetoric. U.S. Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., made the remark at the Netroots Nation Conference in New Orleans, where other liberal speakers were to include U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif. The annual convention drew thousands of liberal activists and offered a chance for Democrats considering presidential runs to win over supporters, the Washington Times reported.

    Speaking Friday at a historically black university, potential Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren delivered what she called “the hard truth about our criminal justice system: It’s racist … I mean front to back.” The Massachusetts senator identified some of the system’s failures: disproportionate arrests of African-Americans for petty drug possession; an overloaded public defender system; and state laws that keep convicted felons from voting even after their sentences are complete.

    On Saturday night (July 28), a bustling crowd gathered outside Jazz Daiquiri Lounge and Chicken & Watermelon on South Claiborne Avenue, as it does most weekends. People chatted, frozen drinks in hand, enjoying slightly cooler weather than in recent days when suddenly chaos broke out. A man bolted across Louisiana Avenue toward the businesses with two hooded subjects, one clutching a long gun and the other a pistol, trailing close behind. The duo haphazardly fired shots in the fleeing man's direction, striking patrons along the way, said Skipper Nichols, who owns Chicken & Watermelon, and reported what he saw after...

    TORONTO (AP) -- A man whose family said he suffered from psychosis and depression fired a handgun into restaurants and cafes in a lively Toronto neighborhood, killing a 10-year-old girl and an 18-year-old woman and wounding 13 others in an attack that has shaken the confidence of many in the normally safe city. Authorities on Monday evening identified the suspect as Faisal Hussain, 29, of Toronto, who died in an exchange of gunfire with police. It was not immediately clear whether he killed himself or was killed by police. The mass shooting in Toronto's Greektown district Sunday night came just...

    When a young Birmingham college student's car broke down the night before he was supposed to start a new job, he didn't panic. At least not for long. Instead, Walter Carr walked. From Homewood to Pelham. All night. In the dark. 20 miles or more. A Carver High School graduate and U.S. Marine hopeful, Carr walked throughout the early morning hours Friday because he needed, and wanted, the job with Bellhops moving company. He made it to Hoover by 2 a.m. and then to Pelham at 4 a.m. It was in Pelham that the trek took a surprising turn. Kindness...

    Valerio, the 3-year-old jaguar at Audubon Zoo who got out of his habitat and killed 9 animals on Saturday (July 15), is believed to have escaped through an 8-by-10-inch hole in the roof of his enclosure. Audubon Zoo officials on Monday gave an update on their investigation into Valerio's escape, providing a detailed timeline of what zoo staff did once they discovered the jaguar was outside the habitat. Five alpacas, three foxes and an emu were attacked by the jaguar and died. Officials believe Valerio bit through the enclosure roof's woven stainless steel fencing - a fact that a zoo...

    The roof of the enclosure that Valerio the jaguar escaped from at Audubon Zoo had been "compromised," according to a Saturday afternoon (July 14) update from zoo leaders. An investigation is still underway to determine how exactly the 3-year-old jaguar got out, killing six animals and injuring three others. The zoo did not specify how the roof has been compromised or what type of damage had been sustained. Audubon Zoo spokeswoman Lauren Messina Conrad said zoo staff would "know more about the enclosure once we complete a thorough investigation." No animals will be housed in the habitat until the investigation...

    New Orleans police arrested a 14-year-old boy Friday (July 6) in connection with two shootings and a car burglary that occurred within a week of June. Investigators connected the teen with an early June car burglary, as well as a shooting on June 9 and a shooting on June 15.

    Six days a week for the past four decades, 67-year-old Daniel Jackson has shown up to work at New Orleans cemeteries. He's seen lightning strike stone angels and hurricanes topple tombstones. He's buried toddlers, Katrina victims, convicted killers and his own siblings. And on a recent spring day, he lounges in a plastic chair wedged in the shade of Carrollton Cemetery and describes his longtime profession as "quiet and peaceful." Jackson's former boss, Henry Nelson, who hung up his own shovel years ago, sits with his legs crossed next to him and stares out at a labyrinth of weathered tombstones....
