    American Verizon workers say mass layoffs are coming as soon as next week in exclusive statements to Breitbart News. Essentially, the deal for the 44,000 workers forces them to resign and take the severance or stay on at the corporation until they are eventually laid off and not eligible to receive the hefty severance package. As Breitbart News reported, Verizon has announced that it will outsource its IT department to Infosys, one of the biggest multi-billion dollar outsourcing firms in the U.S. that has been accused of undercutting American workers and discriminating against black and white Americans in favor of...

  • The word with Liberals is PROJECTION -- a personal story.

    10/14/2018 8:45:57 AM PDT · by BEJ · 137 replies
    Everything liberals accuse the right of doing has been done by them: collusion with Russians, mob behavior, lack of civility, being dictatorial, lying, etc. The list is endless. This is can also happen on a personal level with liberal friends. Here is my story. I went to my liberal friend for a couple of drinks and to chat on a Friday night. Another liberal friend of his dropped in. Conversation naturally turned to Trump. Over the course of discussing Trump voices were getting louder and I was finding it hard to speak with two voices shouting me down. Then my...

    Three-year-old Joy Blessing. She has been detained at Kenyatta National Hospital over hospital bill. “I am grateful that my daughter has recovered, but I cannot leave the hospital. She is very playful and I am afraid she will contract more diseases, ”Ms Mmochi said, noting that patients with different diseases are forced to share beds at the patient detention centre. “Sharing of bed is not good for those whose wounds have not healed. I am appealing to the hospital to release my daughter as I look for money to pay them,” said the 24-year-old mother. “I am a single mother...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) But…but…but…all the “smart” people at CNN and the NYTimes assured me this could not happen. – When President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words) announced on Monday that his administration had reached a new trade agreement with Mexico that would replace NAFTA, he didn’t leave the accurate reporting of it to the whims of the fake news media. Knowing that if he just made a statement about his final call with Mexico’s President Enrique Pena Nieto to seal the deal, he would soon be facing anonymously-sourced fake news...

    Several findings point to the potential for a blue map in November: – President Trump’s job rating remains underwater. – Republicans alone say the economy is in positive shape. – The GOP tax law is less popular (40 percent favorable) than Obamacare (51 percent favorable). – The Republican Party is less popular (39 percent favorable) than the Democratic Party (50 percent favorable). – Optimism about life for the next generation of Americans is down eight points from last year. – There is greater enthusiasm to vote in the midterms among out-of-power Democrats. Meanwhile, the Trump/Russia probe isn’t going away. Approval...

    NBA legend Oscar Robertson has one question as he looks out at the recent collision of politics and sports: “Where are the white players?” Robertson, “The Big O,” was honored with the league’s lifetime achievement award at the NBA Awards banquet Monday night in California. During his remarks on stage, he spoke about the need to “be persistent, or as I’ve been called, stubborn. Stubborn about what you believe in.”

    Today, President Trump signed an Executive Order that will keep migrant families together during detention on the U.S.-Mexico border. The left and the News Misleadia (one and the same, I know) have been fiercely and turbulently condemning President Trump, likening him to Hitler and Mussolini, because he inherited policy and law of previous administrations and had children separated from criminal families at the border. The uproar and furor, continuing for days on end, have triggered some people -- celebrities and common people alike -- to threaten to assassinate him or his children. Today, with the Executive Order Trump signed, the...

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Mike Parson was sworn in as the 57th Governor of Missouri Friday afternoon, ending the tumultuous term of Eric Greitens, who resigned amid accusations of campaign impropriety and sexual misconduct involving a mistress. The oath was administered at 5:30 p.m. by Judge Mary Rhodes Russell in a private ceremony due to time constraints. Parson said he'll hold a public swearing-in at a later date. Parson, 62, was born and raised in Wheatland, Missouri and is a third-generation farmer. He spent six years in the US Army, serving two tours with the Military Police Corps, before returning...

    Joy Ann Reid‘s old, supposedly hacked blog that was first reported on by Mediaite is apparently the gift that keeps on giving, as BuzzFeed News dug-up an old post today in which the MSNBC host likened Senator John McCain to a mass shooter. The October 2007 post, which was published on the now-defunct Reid Report, is titled “Baghdad John Strikes Again” and features a picture of Virginia Tech shooter Seung-Hui Cho but with the head of McCain squarely edited on top of his. “Republican presidential candidate John McCain told workers of small weapons factory that he not only wants to...

    Attorneys for the teenager accused of running over and killing Baltimore County police Officer Amy S. Caprio called for the public release of body camera footage from the incident, saying their client was in “survival mode” when he ran over the officer. J. Wyndal Gordon and Warren Brown, two prominent Baltimore defense attorneys who are representing 16-year-old Dawnta Harris, said Thursday morning that the footage will help answer questions surrounding Caprio’s death, and ultimately help their client’s case. They called on Baltimore County State’s Attorney Scott D. Shellenberger to release the video. “I think it will put a lot of...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo handed Hillary Clinton, the Democratic 2016 presidential nominee, a bouquet of flowers on a stage at his party’s convention on Long Island on Wednesday afternoon. At the same time in Manhattan, Cuomo’s Republican gubernatorial rival was doing all he could to separate himself from his own party’s 2016 presidential nominee, Donald Trump. Marc Molinaro, the Dutchess County executive, officially earned his nomination at the state convention where the New York Republican Party unanimously approved him as its designee to take on Cuomo in November. Drawing a stark contrast from the wealthy president known for his inflammatory rhetoric,...

    On Monday, the NFL announced a new national anthem policy that allows players to stay in the locker room but leaves open the possibility of fines for players who choose not to stand during the anthem. Former Patriots defensive end Chris Long said the new rules reflect the owners’ fear of their bottom line, as well as President Donald Trump, not concerns about patriotism. “Don’t get it confused,” Long wrote on Twitter. “These owners don’t love America more than the players demonstrating and taking real action to improve it.”

    Alabama last elected a Democrat as governor 20 years ago. Former Gov. Robert Bentley received nearly twice the votes as Democrat Parker Griffith in the most recent gubernatorial contest four years ago. The Cook Political Report labels Alabama's governor's race as "solid Republican." The same label comes from the Larry J. Sabato's Crystal Ball, produced at the University of Virginia Center for Politics. "Barring some major developments in this race, it's difficult to see a path for a Democrat to win," said Geoffrey Skelley, associate editor with the Crystal Ball. Said Waymon Burke, a political science professor at Calhoun Community...

    Who would have thought just a couple of years ago that Prince Harry would marry a minor actress from the U.S. television series Suits? Yet I hear the Royal Wedding could be just the start of an even bigger Anglo-American drama. Meghan Markle is said to have told a former close associate that her ultimate ambition is to be president of the U.S. The conversation apparently took place after Meghan began her romance with Prince Harry.

    A lawsuit filed last week calls for the desegregation of New Jersey schools, a potentially game-changing legal challenge for minority students across the state. But how segregated are the state's schools? Just 0.3 percent of the more than 6,700 students in Irvington Public Schools are white, making it the most non-white school district in the state, according to data from the nonprofit Center on Diversity and Equality in Education And that's far from the only example of students of color being isolated. About 66 percent of New Jersey's African American students and 62 percent of its Latino students attend schools...
