    President Donald Trump's first official visit to the U.K. was marked by thousands of people demonstrating in the streets, first in London as Trump met with Queen Elizabeth and then in Scotland where he went to play a little golf. Handmade signs at the massive protest in central London last Friday took aim at Trump's immigration policies and his past comments about women, among plenty of other topics. Not everyone in the crowds came out to hate on Trump. Some were seen sporting his campaign slogan "Make America Great Again" on hats, according to the Associated Press. But the majority...

    Police in Chicago have clashed with protesters after an officer fatally shot a black man who was suspected of carrying a gun. A crowd of about 150 people shouted "murderers", threw objects and jumped on police cars during the confrontation in Chicago's South Side area. Officers armed with batons traded punches with the protesters, local media reports said. Three officers sustained minor injuries and there were four arrests. A string of police killings of black men, some unarmed, has caused outrage and led to protests in cities across the US. Police said the demonstrators in Chicago on Saturday were dispersed...

    Nearly 250,000 activists descended on the streets of central London today to protest Donald Trump's visit to the UK, organisers said. Protesters marched through the capital carrying placards reading "Dump Trump" and "Star Spangled Gobs***". Aerial images showed the streets of central London from Portland Place to Trafalgar Square packed with tens of thousands of people taking part. Stop Trump, the group which organised the biggest march, said that there were 250,000 people taking part. The day began with the unveiling of the Trump baby blimp in Parliament Square, which was crowdfunded by campaigners furious that Mr Trump was being...

    LONDON – Thousands of Trump supporters and right-wing activists took to the nation’s capital on Saturday — a day after anti-Trump protesters had dominated the city. While the displays of right-wing support were nowhere near as large as the enormous anti-Trump march that demanded the international media’s attention the day before, it was still a significant show of support for Trump from those eager to counter the claim that Trump had been unanimously rejected by Britons. The day started with a small pro-Trump rally outside the U.S. Embassy, featuring numerous red “MAGA” hats and U.S. and U.K. flags -- as...

    Last month Donny Deutsch, former host of his own CNBC show and a frequent contributor to MSNBC, was on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” discussing the blossoming crisis of family separation on the Mexican border. At one point Deutsch observed, “If you vote for Trump then you, the voter, you, not Donald Trump, are standing at the border, like Nazis, going ‘you here, you here.’” That scummy comment — disparaging more than 60 million Americans, including a majority of Polk County voters in the 2016 presidential election, as akin to the pure evil of Adolf Hitler’s murderous regime — slid by the...
  • Trump in UK: Pomp and protest as visit stokes culture war

    As the son of immigrants, Donald Trump has his own special relationship with the United Kingdom. His mother, Mary MacLeod, was born and raised in the village of Tong, on the Outer Hebridean island of Lewis, on Scotland's wild and beautiful north-western fringe. A less Trumpian upbringing is hard to imagine. Mary's pebble-dashed home was modest to say the least, the traditions of the island strictly and austerely Presbyterian. Lewis is not a place of multiple marriages and glittering golden towers. It owes more to Calvin than to Mammon, more to Wittenberg than to Vegas. On Sundays not so many...

    As the families of U.S. hostages currently held in Iran have struggled for years to rally the determination to bring their loved ones home, newly released emails from the former secretary of State reveal the infuriating truth that those with connections get their case raised to the top. In 2009, Iason Athanasiadis was covering the protests of the disputed election win of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad over Mir-Hossein Mousavi for the Washington Times. The Greek citizen was detained by Iranian authorities on June 17, 2009, as he tried to fly out of the country. Athanasiadis was thrown in Evin prison and released...

    LONDON (Reuters) - The U.S. Embassy in London issued an alert on Tuesday to Americans in the British capital, warning them to keep a low profile during President Donald Trump’s visit later this week in case protests against him turn violent. Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday after a NATO summit and thousands of protesters are expected to join demonstrations during his visit, including plans to fly a blimp over parliament portraying Trump as an orange, snarling baby. While Britain regards the United States as its closest ally, some Britons see Trump as crude, volatile and opposed to their values...

    Reflections on the nature of today's demonstrations… Right at the beginning of the Bill of Rights, our Constitution clearly protects American citizens’ right to speak freely on political issues. The First Amendment promises that “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble.” The Constitution doesn’t grant them an audience; it doesn’t promise that anyone will listen to them, or read their writings or join in their demonstration. It just allows them to do it, and leaves it up to local and state governments to manage...

    The nation's first and most successful occupation of a federal immigration building has entered a stalemate. The demonstrators at what federal officials characterize as a "very, very peaceful" protest camp outside the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement building on Southwest Macadam Avenue have settled in for the long haul. Federal agents swept protesters away from the ICE building's front entrance June 28, allowing the building to fully reopen July 3. Now the two organizations—ICE and Occupy ICE—are uneasy neighbors. Last weekend, small children in the protest camp played with bubbles as their parents crafted protest signs and bopped to dated...

The protests are taking place in front of the ICE office on 8th and Cherry Streets in Center City.Protesters have been out since Monday afternoon. An organizer says they have donations of cold water and food coming in constantly because the goal is to be out here in front of ICE’s office indefinitely until certain demands are met.

    Michael Moore appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher and urged fellow liberals not to give up hope on the inevitable confirmation of President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. Bill Maher began by asking Moore about the “Hail Mary” plan he supposedly had to prevent the replacement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. “Listen, the Senate right now is 50-49. Sadly, McCain will not be able to vote, so it’s a 50-49 vote,” Moore declared. “C’mon! We’ve got to push it off til after November.” “And I don’t trust every Democrat,” Maher told Moore. “We’ve got to hold the Democratic seats we...

    Police in Portland, Oregon, have ordered participants in a march by Patriot Prayer to disperse after officers saw assaults and projectiles being thrown. Police said Saturday that some arrests have been made at the downtown protest involving immigration. The problems occurred as two opposing protest groups - Patriot Prayer and antifa - took to the streets. People were lighting firecrackers and smoke bombs in the crowd and police used flash bangs in an effort to disperse the clashing protesters....

    WASHINGTON — They wore white. They shook their fists in the air. They carried signs reading: “No more children in cages,” and “What’s next? Concentration Camps?” In major cities and tiny towns, thousands of marchers gathered across America, moved by accounts of children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border, in the latest act of mass resistance against President Donald Trump’s immigration policies. “I’m hoping that decent human beings come together, and enough is enough, we’re taking out country back over, that evil is not going to prevail,” said Patricia Carlan, a grandmother of nine from Danville, Indiana, among...

We were told by the "fake news" that hundreds and hundreds of thousand of marchers were going to be active today, across the entire country.

Methinks it will not go well...across the board. Just a few screaming fools making idiots out of...

    Portland open-borders protesters berated a young female KATU reporter over her appearance until the abuse became so over the top that she was forced off air. “Tacky-a** heels, those are ugly as f***…make your face look a little more appealing,” a protester, who looked like she hadn’t showered in a week, yelled at the reporter while she was on-air. The leftist abusers hurled sexist insults at the reporter while claiming that the station had reported that Immigration and Customs Enforcement could not be abolished. In a post on Facebook about the verbal abuse that she was subjected to, the reporter,...

    “What the regime feared most is happening,” Alinejad tells me. “Tehran had stayed calm as nationwide protests at the beginning of the year engulfed 80 cities. Now an impromptu protest in Tehran by merchants against economic mismanagement has turned into a massive anti-regime event, with chants of death to dictator and death to Palestine.”

    Minneapolis police fatally shot a black man they say was armed with a handgun Saturday evening on the city’s north side, sparking a wave of protests over the weekend. The shooting, which is being investigated by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, took place about 5:30 p.m. after at least one 911 caller reported seeing a man firing a handgun into the air near 46th and Lyndale avenues, according to a news release issued Sunday by he BCA. When officers arrived, they found the man sitting on a curb with a woman near the intersection of 48th and Camden avenues,...
