Clinton: Female Trump Supporters Disrespect Themselves By Supporting Him…

Via Fortune:

Hillary Clinton spoke about her thoughts on what she viewed as sexist comments by President Donald Trump and women who continued to support him.

“When I see women doing that, I think why are they publicly disrespecting themselves? Why are they opening the door to have someone say that about them in their workplace? In a community setting? Do they not see the connection there?” Clinton said in an interview on AM Joy.

She added that the fight against sexism is ongoing, even for women. She also pointed out that, while more women voted for her, she lost white women’s vote. However, she said progress was still made because she won more votes from white women than former President Barack Obama did.

Just Over 3,000 People Buy Madonna’s New Album…

Womp womp womp

Via Showbizz 411:

Madonna released a live album last Friday. News to me. News to everyone, apparently.

The “Rebel Heart” Tour album sold just 3,848 CDs and downloads according to Buzz Angle and hitsdailydouble.com. It had no streaming that was reported.

Stranger, though, was that the album wasn’t released on Interscope, which put out the original “Rebel Heart” album. But maybe not so strange since “Rebel Heart” sold only 238,000 copies in the US. Madonna once sold millions of albums. (So did everyone.)

The live album was issued by Eagle Rock, a video company. Eagle Rock put it out as a standalone for audio. But they also sell a video package of CD/DVD/Blu-Ray that includes the live album.

Former Dem Congresswoman Calls For All NFL Players To Kneel ‘Against The White Supremacist Who Squats In Our White House’

Ticket scalpers are having a hard-enough time selling tickets.

Via Daily Mail:

A former Democrat Congresswoman has called for every NFL player to kneel during the national anthem at Sunday’s games, while branding President Donald Trump a ‘white supremacist’.

Donna Edwards, who retired as a US representative for Maryland earlier this year, issued the bold statement on Saturday, responding to Trump’s criticism of NFL players who refuse to stand for the anthem.

‘On Sunday, I hope every @NFL player takes a knee in solidarity w [Colin Kaepernick] against the white supremacist who squats in our White House,’ Edwards said in reference to the former San Francisco quarterback, who is now a free agent.

Edwards continued: ‘For the record, I do stand for the flag. I stand because I respect our Constitution and value the freedom of speech of others not to do so.’

College Students Plan Protest Of Benghazi Hero Kris Paronto’s Sold-Out Lecture For Fear He Might Talk Politics

Hillary left him and others to die.

Via AMN:

While Kris “Tanto” Paronto is slated to speak at Victoria College, in Texas, in October, rumors have surfaced that students will be protesting his lecture. One report claimed people are planning to protest the event because Paronto might “talk politics and offend members of the Victoria Islamic Center” there.

“A planned protest has formed to get tickets for the program, but then not show up, to decrease attendance to the lecture,” the Victoria Advocate reported. Tickets are currently sold out for the lecture, which is part of Victoria College’s Lyceum Lecture Series.

Paronto told American Military News this week that any protestors for the lecture haven’t done their homework to learn about him, and that protestors in general don’t always understand what they’re protesting.

“They protest to cause divisiveness, to be accepted into a like-minded group no matter how ignorant the group is or because they have nothing else to do,” he said Friday. “This possible protest in Victoria, Texas, validates that.”

North Korean Foreign Minister Declares Rocket Attacks On US Mainland Now More Inevitable

The crazy train continues.

Via The Mirror:

North Korea says Donald Trump’s labelling of Kim Jong-Un as “Rocket Man” has made “our rockets’ visit to the entire U.S. mainland inevitable”.

Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho told the United Nations that Mr Trump had committed an irreversible mistake during his speech to the body in New York last week.

His comments came today after it emerged the US had sent bombers to the North Korean border today in the closest they have been this century.

Foreign Minister Ri said if US lives were lost, Mr Trump would be held totally responsible.

“Through such a prolonged and arduous struggle, now we are finally only a few steps away from the final gate of completion of the state nuclear force,” Ri told the annual gathering of world leaders for the United Nations General Assembly.

“It is only a forlorn hope to consider any chance that the DPRK (North Korea) would be shaken an inch or change its stance due to the harsher sanctions by the hostile forces.”

He said North Korean did not have any intention to use or threaten its nuclear weapons against countries that did not join US military action.

He added that Mr Trump’s speech at the UN was reckless and violent and he was trying to the turn the body into “a gangster’s nest where money is respected and bloodshed is the order of the day”.

UC Berkeley Student Group Cancels ‘Free Speech Week’ Event

They had Shapiro but it costs 600,000 which makes ensuring free speech not economically sustainable. Which is how Antifa wins. They should be fined when arrested for any damage or security costs.

Via Fox News:

Confusion swirled over the fate of University of Berkeley’s controversial “Free Speech Week” after the student group that organized it canceled the event but a featured speaker insisted it was still being held.

UC Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof said Saturday that the Berkeley Patriot student organization told university administrators that the four-day event scheduled to start Sunday had been canceled.

But the event’s co-organizer, right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, said in a Facebook post that while the student group may have pulled out, he and other speakers had not.

“We shall speak in Berkeley, we shall speak on the plazas and the steps. We shall defend free speech, whatever the cost may be. We shall never surrender!” Yiannopoulos wrote, adding that he was paraphrasing Winston Churchill.

The conservative student group Berkeley Patriot was dropping out for safety reasons, the Berkeleyside, a local website, reported Saturday.

Frida Sofia, Girl Thought To Be Trapped In Earthquake Rubble Of School in Mexico, Doesn’t Exist

If it bleeds, it leads.

Via Washington Times:

Hour after excruciating hour, Mexicans were transfixed by dramatic efforts to reach a young girl thought buried in the rubble of a school destroyed by a magnitude 7.1 earthquake. She reportedly wiggled her fingers, told rescuers her name and said there were others trapped near her. Rescue workers called for tubes, pipes and other tools to reach her.

News media, officials and volunteer rescuers all repeated the story of “Frida Sofia” with a sense of urgency that made it a national drama, drawing attention away from other rescue efforts across the quake-stricken city and leaving people in Mexico and abroad glued to their television sets.

But she never existed, Mexican navy officials now say.

“We want to emphasize that we have no knowledge about the report that emerged with the name of a girl,” navy Assistant Secretary Angel Enrique Sarmiento said Thursday. “We never had any knowledge about that report, and we do not believe – we are sure – it was not a reality.”

Sarmiento said a camera lowered into the rubble of the Enrique Rebsamen school showed blood tracks where an injured person apparently dragged himself or herself, and the only person it could be – the only one still listed as missing – was a school employee. But it was just blood tracks – no fingers wiggling, no voice, no name. Several dead people have been removed from the rubble, and it could have been their fingers rescuers thought they saw move.

Twitter users quickly brought out the “Fake News” tag and complained that the widespread coverage had distracted attention from real rescue efforts where victims have been pulled victims from the rubble – something that hasn’t happened at the school in at least a day.

Viewers across the country hung on the round-the-clock coverage of the drama Wednesday from the only network that was permitted to enter. The military, which ran the rescue operation, spoke directly only to the network’s reporters inside the site.

Reports about the trapped girl led to the donations of cranes, support beams and power tools at the school site – pleas for help quickly met based on the urgency of rescuing children. It was unclear if that affected other rescue operations going on simultaneously at a half dozen other sites across the city.

Despite all the technology brought to bear at the school, including thermal imaging devices, sensors, scanners and remote cameras, the mistake may have come down to a few over-enthusiastic rescuers who, one-by one, crawled into the bottom of shafts tunneled into the rubble looking for any signs of life.[…]

In retrospect, the story of “Frida Sofia,” had some suspicious points from the start.

Officials couldn’t locate any relatives of the missing girl, and the AP reported that no girl with that name attended the school. Rescuers said they were still separated from her by yards of rubble, but could somehow still hear her.

Jimmy Kimmel Got Help From Chuck Schumer In His Fight Against Obamacare Repeal

Kimmel appeals to the low information voter.

Via The Daily Beast:

Over the past week, opposition to the latest Republican effort to repeal and replace Obamacare has been driven by a late-night talk show host who had expressed little interest in health care policy prior to this year.

Jimmy Kimmel’s nightly monologues decrying Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Bill Cassidy’s (R-LA) bill became must-see TV, as the ABC host systematically attacked both the specifics of the legislation and Cassidy himself.

Behind the scenes, the ABC star was getting an assist. Kimmel and his team were in touch with health care officials, charities and advocacy groups, multiple sources told The Daily Beast. He also was in touch with the office of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y) who, according to a source familiar with their conversations, “provided technical guidance and info about the bill, as well as stats from various think tanks and experts on the effects of [Graham-Cassidy].”

The A-list actor and new father, 56, spoke during a wide-ranging interview with the Daily Beast revealing that while he believes the Democratic nominee was ‘qualified for the job,’ she wasn’t a skilled communicator like some of her counterparts.

‘Being qualified for the job does not necessarily mean you’re the right person to be president,’ Clooney said in the interview.

‘Here’s what I mean… She was more qualified than even her husband was when he was elected president, but she’s not as good at communicating things. That’s simply true.

Warning Notice For Code Violations From Miami-Dade County After Irma

It’s for the revenue.

Via WSVN:

Hours after Irma passed, many of us were out clearing trees and branches from our yard. One Miami-Dade man got a visit from the county to bring him a warning. His reaction? Call Help Me Howard with Patrick Fraser.

As Irma whipped through South Florida, Celso Perez and his family were like many of us…

Celso Perez, surprised by county: “Having winds up to 100 miles per hour and we were basically hunkered down in the closet scared to death.”

Monday morning, Irma had passed and it was clear. At 9 a.m., Celso and his neighbors went outside to get to work.

Celso Perez: “We had a lot of trees down in the street and the streets were blocked. We were out here, us and our neighbors, cutting the branches down and trying to open up the streets.”

Later Monday afternoon, as Celso was clearing the tree branches, a car pulled up from Miami-Dade County…

Celso Perez: “And we thought he was here to help us or offer some type of assistance with the trees, maybe he was going to bring us ice or something.”

The code enforcement guy did give Celso something…

Celso Perez: “He said he would have to cite me for having my fence down.”

This warning was slapped on the part of the fence still standing. Celso is a very calm guy. His reaction?

Celso Perez: “I laughed. I thought he was kidding. ‘You are kidding right? We just had a hurricane six hours ago.’ ‘No, I’m not kidding. I have to cite you for this.’ I just laughed. OK, whatever; knock yourself out!”

Celso was told he got the warning was because the fence Irma knocked over made it easy to access his pool and he needed to fix that.

Celso Perez: “Which I could not do that day because all the stores were closed. It’s not like I can go to Home Depot and find some temporary barrier.”

Celso said the code enforcement officer told him he would write up a report and be back to check on him.

Celso Perez: “And if my fence had not been put back up when he came back, he would have to write me a fine or fine me for that.”

Now Celso was really irritated.

Celso Perez: “At the time this officer was out here, we didn’t have power, we didn’t have food, we didn’t have ice. He is crazy, ridiculous. The mayor said that the county would help us recover from the storm and were there to help us. Before the county picks up the debris, the code enforcement guy will beat them to it and some for having my fence down, write me a ticket or something. I’m mad, very upset about this.”

Trump Ticked Off Some In NFL Last Night And They Fired Back.

Weenies.

Via Biz Pac Review:

It looks like President Trump just gave NFL players something else to protest.

Trump’s condemnation of players who kneel during the national anthem drew cheers and applause at a rally for Alabama Senate candidate Luther Strange on Friday night, but NFL players immediately fired back.

“Trump stay in ur place… football have nothing to do wit u smh,” Washington Redskins linebacker Zach Brown tweeted, following Trump’s remarks encouraging fans to leave the stadiums if any players taking a knee during games.

Trump has previously criticized former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick after he kneeled during the national anthem before a preseason game in September 2016 to protest the treatment of black citizens in America. Kaepernick, who remains unsigned, inspired similar protests by a handful of other players in the following seasons.

Some fans have taken to protests of their own over politicizing the sport and attendance at NFL games appears to be showing their disapproval.

Woman Who Criticized Hobby Lobby’s Cotton Decoration, Says She’s Gotten Death Threats

Although her comment was beyond silly, no one deserves death threats. Update to this story.

Via KCEN:

Killeen resident Daniell Rider responded Wednesday to backlash she has received after posting to Facebook a photo of a faux raw cotton decorative plant sold at craft giant Hobby Lobby — a company she urged to remove the decor by arguing the decoration was insensitive.

“This decor is WRONG on SO many levels. There is nothing decorative about raw cotton…a commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves,” Rider wrote on Facebook. “A little sensitivity goes a long way. PLEASE REMOVE THIS ‘decor.'”[…]

“It doesn’t represent a decoration for me it represents a time of oppression for my people,” Rider told KCEN-TV reporter Emani Payne in an interview Wednesday.

Rider said she did not regret her post, adding she hopes a representative for Hobby Lobby will reach out to her and consider removing the cotton decoration from store shelves.

“I wasn’t trying to be divisive,” Rider explained. “If I was trying to be divisive I would’ve talked about the world, race relations. I am simply a consumer talking to a retailer. And, all I said was I found something offensive”

Trump Says NFL Should Fire Players Who Kneel During Anthem

Ticket and merchandise sales drive the NFL.

Via WACH:

President Donald Trump says National Football League owners should fire players who kneel during the national anthem. And he’s encouraging spectators to walk out in protest.

In an extended riff during a freewheeling rally speech in Alabama Friday night, Trump also bemoaned that football games have become less violent.

“They’re ruining the game,” he complained.

Several athletes, including NFL players, have refused to stand during “The Star-Spangled Banner” to protest of the treatment of blacks by police.

Trump says those players are disrespecting the flag and deserve to lose their jobs.

“That’s a total disrespect of our heritage. That’s a total disrespect of everything that we stand for,” he said, encouraging owners to act.

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you’d say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired,” Trump said to loud applause.
