    In the early days of December 1805, a handful of prominent politicians received formal invitations to join President Thomas Jefferson for a White House dinner. Whatever Jefferson could have foreseen for the young country’s future, it appears the modern-day White House tradition of marking Ramadan with an iftar dinner or Eid celebration has come to an end. Ramadan, which falls on the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, started on May 27 this year and ends at sundown Saturday. Muslims around the world will mark the end of the holy month by celebrating the holiday Eid al-Fitr, the “feast of...

    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has declined a request to host an event to mark Islam's holy month of Ramadan, two U.S. officials said, apparently breaking with a bipartisan tradition in place with few exceptions for nearly 20 years. Since 1999, Republican and Democratic secretaries of state have nearly always hosted either an iftar dinner to break the day's fast during Ramadan or a reception marking the Eid al-Fitr holiday at the end of the month, at the State Department. Tillerson turned down a request from the State Department's Office of Religion and Global Affairs to host an Eid al-Fitr...

    Boeing Co (BA.N) handily defeated a union drive by workers at the company's aircraft factory in South Carolina on Wednesday, as almost three-quarters of workers at the plant who voted rejected union representation. The secret ballot vote, conducted by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) at polling locations throughout the North Charleston plant, was the first for Boeing and a high-profile test for organized labor in the nation's most strongly anti-union state. The NLRB said 74 percent of the 2,828 workers who cast ballots voted against joining the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM).
  • Kony 2017: The Facebook World Didn't Catch Him

    03/29/2017 2:38:19 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 1 replies ^ | March 29, 2017 | Austin Bay
    In October 2011, the Obama Administration ordered 100 U.S. special operations troops to deploy to central Africa to help African and U.N. forces capture Joseph Kony, the psychopathic commander of the Ugandan rebel Lord's Resistance Army. Kony is an evil man. Note the present tense: is, not was. In the late 1980s, Kony took control of a movement whose goals linked the Acholi tribe's demands for autonomy in northern Uganda with a promise to govern Uganda according to the Ten Commandments. But Joseph Kony lived by a different testament. In 2005, the International Criminal Court indicted him on charges of...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton didn’t perform well in the latest poll in the New York City mayor’s race, according to a new Rasmussen poll released Tuesday. Fifty-eight percent of likely voters in the city don’t want Clinton to run again, compared to just 23 percent of voters who wanted the former presidential candidate to run. Nineteen percent of voters hadn’t yet made up their mind. Current Mayor Bill de Blasio is set to run for reelection, but trails Republican challenger Paul Massey, Jr. in terms of fundraising. Massey raised $1.6 million in the race so far, compared to...

    New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker said Saturday he is not planning to run for president in 2020, telling CNN's Brooke Baldwin he wants to instead focus on running an effective opposition to the Trump administration. "Too many things can happen that can hurt people in our nation and around the globe if this President isn't checked," Booker told Baldwin, speaking at the Women's March in Washington. "Right now, I don't care about 2020. I don't care about 2018."

    WASHINGTON — The congressional district seat reportedly being targeted for a run by Chelsea Clinton may not be vacant any time soon. The New York Post reported last week that Democratic operatives within the Empire State are quietly grooming Chelsea to run in the Westchester seat currently occupied by longtime Democratic Congresswoman Nita Lowey. “There has been a lot of speculation within New York Democratic circles about Lowey’s retirement and Chelsea running for the seat. There is a belief that Chappaqua is a logical place for Chelsea to run, because it would be straightforward for her to raise money and...

    We're awaiting a slew of cabinet announcements today from President-elect Donald Trump but one high profile campaign surrogate won't be named. Dr. Ben Carson, who ran against Trump in the primary, has reportedly declined any kind of position inside the administration. Before declining, Carson was on the short list for Secretary of Education and Health and Human Services. Raffi Williams over at Circa has the scoop: According to Dr. Ben Carson's business manager Armstrong Williams, Dr. Ben Carson will not serve in President-elect Donald Trump's administration, a separate source confirmed that Carson was being offered a position as Secretary of Health and Human...

    Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said Monday he wants to be a long-term strategic planner for President-elect Donald Trump in order to transform the country. Speaking on Fox News Monday, Gingrich said his thoughts are already on how to hand off a successful Trump administration to a Republican successor in January 2025. He wants to work in the administration in such a way that would help him focus the administration on that lofty goal. "It's not a very normal position but this is not going to be a very normal presidency," he said... "I probably bring a different...

    Even the town with perhaps the deepest historical ties to the Clintons voted for Donald Trump in Tuesday's election. The county that surrounds Hope, Ark. -- the birthplace and boyhood home of Bill Clinton, in the state where the Clintons made their political name -- backed Trump by an overwhelming two-to-one margin. According to state data, a total of 62.45 percent of voters in Hempstead County went for Trump, to Hillary Clinton’s 33.72 percent. The state of Arkansas as a whole voted along the same lines, with 60.59 percent voting for Trump and 33.65 percent voting for Clinton.

    We don’t force our faith on anybody else,” Chuck Wingate, executive director of Bethesda Mission, told “But we find the whole idea that the government’s going to come in a[nd] tell us what we can and cannot do in our own facility to be out of bounds, especially in matters of faith.” Wingate, who says his Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, ministry serves 100,000 people a month, was referring to a new U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulation forbidding recipients of USDA food from requiring “a beneficiary to attend or participate in any explicitly religious activities that are offered by the organization.”...

    A DOUBLE STANDARD! If Donald Trump's private reference to "pussy" disqualifies him from seeking the Presidency, then why did the media ignore Obongo's 2008 deliberate and vulgar public exhibition of his erection? Listen to the silly females calling out "Agent sit down. Agent sit down" -- so that they could have a better look at Obongo's crotch. See brief video below.

    One of the big questions heading into the Democratic National Convention late last month was whether Hillary Clinton could rally Bernie Sanders supporters to her side. Before the convention, many Sanders supporters said they would support Clinton in a two-way matchup against Donald Trump, but when pollsters offered them third-party candidates as an option, they abandoned her. Then, on the first night of the convention, Sanders gave his big speech urging his voters to support Clinton, and we can now see that the convention did help persuade some Sanders voters to switch. But about a third of Sanders’s voters are...
