Is She Kidding? Rihanna Plans To Honor ‘Civil Rights Activist’ Shaun King At Diamond Ball

How do these people still not know the score on Shaun King at this point? We outed him in 2015 along with several other sites, but he’s still soliciting money from people. His latest fundraiser is “Flip the Senate.”

Via Newsone:

The seemingly good news that Rihanna planned to honor Shaun King at an upcoming awards ceremony was quickly flipped upside down after its announcement on Wednesday when social media users reacted by pulling out what they claimed were some damning receipts about the controversial social justice activist.

Rihanna’s annual Diamond Ball was set to present King as well as Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley with the event’s highest honor next month with the Diamond Ball Award which, according to Variety, “will benefit the Clara Lionel Foundation, an organization created by the singer to fund education and emergency response programs throughout the globe.”

But when social media users caught wind of the announcement, there seemed to be a collective scratching of the head surrounding the selection of King to be honored for his work in the civil rights arena. The announcement powered King’s name to be the top trending topic on Twitter overnight, but not in a good way (depending on who you ask).

Trump May Issue Exec Order Ending Citizenship For Babies Of Illegal Immigrants: Calls It ‘Frankly Ridiculous’

Via Daily Wire:

On Wednesday, President Trump stated that he is thinking of issuing an executive order that would prevent the children born on American soil to illegal immigrants from gaining automatic American citizenship, calling so-called “birthright citizenship” “frankly ridiculous.”

Trump told reporters, “Birthright citizenship — where you have a baby in our land, walk over the border, have a baby, congratulations — the baby is now a U.S. citizen. We’re looking at it very, very seriously.” When he was apprised that one reporter knew of Trump’s intent to go forward with an executive order, which he had mentioned in 2018, he responded, ‘‘I don’t know how you found that out, but that’s very good. We’re looking at birthright citizenship very seriously. It’s frankly ridiculous.”

CNN Analyst Frets: White Supremacists Are ‘Coming For All Of Us’…

OMG! Panic!

ALI: “What I want to tell all my Jewish cousins from others mothers is that Muslims are with you, and that we see through this. We’re not going to let him use Jews and Israel and anti-Semitism as a wedge to divide us along the religious and racial lines. We’re in this together. We know he attacks black women, Muslims, women, Latinos, immigrants, and Jews and we know that white supremacists are the number one domestic terror threat in America coming for all of us. We’re going to unite. We’re going to have our disagreements about Israel. That’s fine. But we’re going to unite against the common threat that is coming against all of us which is white supremacy, and Donald Trump, you will not win.”

Overnight Open Thread: Restaurant Server’s Heartwarming Moment With WWII Veteran Goes Viral: ‘It Was A Touching Sight’

Via Fox News:

A restaurant server shared a heartwarming moment with a 91-year-old WWII veteran that has gone viral on social media.

Customer Lisa Meilander was dining with her family at Eat’n Park diner in Belle Vernon, Penn., when she spotted an elderly man seated alone in a nearby booth.

Meilander, a preschool teacher, said at first her family “really didn’t see him come in,” but took notice when their waiter, Dylan Tetil, 24, got down on one knee to talk to the man “eye-to-eye.”

“The man apologized for not hearing too well. He had forgotten to put in his hearing aids. He talked about how he lost his hearing during his time in the war. He was 91 years old with many stories to tell. Dylan patiently listened giving him his full attention,” Meilander wrote on Facebook, along with photos of the touching moment the men shared.

Trump Signs Executive Order Cancelling Student Loan Debt For Disabled Veterans

Via Fox News:

President Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday that forgives all student loan debt for any permanently disabled U.S. military veterans.

The order, which Trump signed following a speech at the American Veterans National Convention in Louisville, Ky., also clears those eligible veterans from having to pay any federal income tax on the loans. Trump added that he is pressuring individual states to follow suit.

“The debt of these disabled veterans will be completely erased,” Trump said. “That’s hundreds of millions of dollars of student loans debt for our disabled veterans that will be completely erased.”

Poll: 63% Expect Trump Reelection, Up From 43%

That may explain why Dems are throwing everything up against the wall to try to take him down.

Via Washington Examiner:

A growing number of Americans, now a substantial majority, believe that President Trump is at least “somewhat likely” to win reelection, according to a new survey.

Despite nonstop negative headlines and concerns of an economic stall, 63% believe Trump is heading to reelection in Scott Rasmussen’s latest 2020 poll.

And, he said, those expectations have continued to grow even as the Democratic presidential primary race heats up.

In his daily memo, Rasmussen said, “The president’s job approval rating has also remained stable throughout the year. Despite that stability, the number who believe it’s likely that the president will be re-elected has grown every month.

Rashida Tlaib Would Have Had to Pay Own Way to Visit Grandma

Another reason she likely begged off.

Via Free Beacon:

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) would have had to pick up the costs of her trip to Israel to avoid an ethics violation once she told the Jewish state it was a personal trip to see her elderly grandmother.

Tlaib was told last Thursday she’d been denied entry into Israel for an official congressional trip due to her support for the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement. The trip was to be funded by Miftah, an anti-Israel group that has defended suicide attacks, and had been approved by the House of Representatives.

Everything changed, however, when Tlaib petitioned Israel’s minister of the interior to allow her to enter the country for the purpose of seeing her grandmother.

“I would like to request admittance to Israel in order to visit my relatives, and specifically my grandmother, who is in her 90s and lives in Beit Ur al-Fouqa,” Tlaib wrote in a letter sent on her office letterhead. “This could be my last opportunity to see her. I will respect any restrictions and will not promote boycotts against Israel during any visit.”

Mexico Legalizes Cocaine For Two People…

Ridiculous.

Via National Post:

In a landmark ruling a judge in Mexico has legalized cocaine — but only for two users.

The order by the judge to the country’s health authority has raised the possibility that Mexico could, at some point, legalize cocaine use, but only on a case-by-case basis.

The ruling still needs to pass a higher court, but a lower court official has ruled that two claimants should be allowed to “possess, transport and use cocaine,” the BBC reports. The pair, who haven’t been identified, would not be allowed to sell the drug, advocacy group Mexico United Against Crime (MUCD) said.

A court in Mexico City ordered that COFEPRIS, the health authority, must allow the claimants to use cocaine in a recreational capacity. COFEPRIS, has not yet moved on the case, AFP reports, and is trying to get the judge’s decision thrown out, saying that it is not designed to handle such cases.

According to Al Jazeera, an MUCD statement hailed the ruling as “another step in the fight to construct alternative drug policies that allow [Mexico] to redirect its security efforts and better address public health.”

Iraq Military Says U.S. Drone Caused Explosion At Base…

Via Arab News:

BAGHDAD: A drone strike caused a massive explosion last week at a munitions depot run by an Iranian-backed militia near Iraq’s capital, Baghdad, according to an Iraqi government report obtained Wednesday.

The document shows that a government investigation concluded a drone had set off the blast.

The finding deepens the question of who is behind a string of at least three mysterious explosions that have hit militia bases in Iraq over the past month. Speculation among media and officials has ranged among a number of possible perpetrators, including Israel, Daesh militants, the United States or rival Iraqi factions.

The Associated Press on Wednesday obtained the report outlining the conclusions of a fact-finding committee ordered by the government to investigate the Aug. 12 explosion at the Al-Saqr military base.

It said the blast was caused by a drone strike that sparked a huge fire and ruled out earlier suggestions that it was caused by an electrical short circuit or faulty storage of munitions that allowed them to overheat in sweltering summer temperatures.

Feds: 82° Is Where Your Thermostat Should Be Set At Night…

That’s a big nope.

Via Fox:

To keep your home cool with central air conditioning while also optimizing energy efficiency (and therefore cost), keep the temperature at 78 degrees Fahrenheit or higher.

The suggestion comes from Energy Star, a federal program managed jointly by the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency that provides information to consumers about energy efficiency practices that not only save consumers money, but also improve air quality and protect the environment.

With record-breaking heat waves becoming the norm, finding ways to beat the heat without busting your budget might seem mystifying, which is why Energy Star provided consumers with a set of energy-saving recommendations on how to best manage central air conditioning in warmer spring and summer months.

Nevada Planning For Huge Crowds As Moonbats Plan To Invade Area 51…

Invading a “secret” government facility to test aircraft …what could go wrong?

Via AP:

Fearing they could be overwhelmed with visitors, officials in the remote Nevada county that’s home to the Area 51 military base have drafted an emergency declaration and a plan to team resources with neighboring counties and the state ahead of events next month tied to the “Storm Area 51” internet drive.

The elected board governing the county with about 5,200 residents conditionally approved two events Monday for tiny desert towns near the once top-secret U.S. Air Force test area known in popular lore as a site for government studies of outer space aliens.

“Oh, we’re taking this seriously,” Lincoln County Commission Chairman Varlin Higbee told the Las Vegas Review-Journal . “With the possibility of 35,000 to 40,000 people showing up, yeah, this is serious.”

County officials are concerned that a surge of visitors will crowd campsites, gas stations and public medical, internet and cellphone services. Officials count just 184 hotel rooms in the county nearly twice the size of the Connecticut.

“The cellphone system is going to go down,” Higbee said. “You get more than a couple of hundred people there, and it’s going to crash. Cell service won’t be available.”

The Little A’Le’Inn in the community of Rachel, population about 50, is scheduling a three-day music festival Sept. 20-22 dubbed Alienstock. Hotel co-owner Connie West has said she’s expecting 10,000 people.

The Alien Research Center souvenir shop in Hiko, a town of about 120 a 45-minute drive from Rachel, plans a Sept. 20-21 exposition.

The events evolved from an internet post inviting people to run into the remote test area in the Nevada desert that has long been the focus of UFO conspiracy theories.

County Sheriff Kerry Lee said Tuesday he was meeting with state emergency planning officials.

County officials have also met with officials from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department in Clark County, the sheriffs of White Pine and Nye counties, and the Nevada Highway Patrol.

Eric Holt, county emergency manager, asked commissioners to “pre-sign” the emergency declaration.

Japan: North Korea Is An Imminent Threat, They Have Miniaturized Nukes…

One of the reasons Trump has been so concentrated on North Korea. There were reports under Obama they were doing this and he did nothing about it.

Via Daily Mail:

North Korea has miniaturised nuclear warheads and made them small enough to fit on ballistic missiles, Japan believes.

Tokyo defence chiefs warn in a new white paper that North Korea’s military activities pose a ‘serious and imminent threat’.

In last year’s report Japan said it was ‘possible’ that North Korea had achieved miniaturisation, but Tokyo now appears to have upgraded its assessment, according to Japanese newspaper Yomiuri.

Japan is seen as a ‘primary target’ of nearby North Korea’s weapons capabilities and fears that Pyongyang’s nuclear programme is ‘growing unabated’, experts say.

The latest findings come alongside newly-released pictures which suggest a North Korean plant may be leaking hazardous waste into a nearby river.

Rural Hospitals From Texas To Maine Say ‘Medicare For All’ Would End Up ‘Closing Our Doors’

That would just be the start of the problems.

Via WBUR:

Adopting a single-payer government health care program that covers all Americans would force more rural hospitals to close, according to hospital administrators from Texas to Maine.

Universal health care — also known as “Medicare for All” — is a long way from becoming law. But the issue is already dividing Democrats trying to unseat President Trump in the 2020 election.

Some progressive front-runners like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders say they’d be willing to do away with private insurance in favor of a government plan.

Moderates have balked at that idea — and at the price tag.

Here’s how former Rep. John Delaney put it during the Democratic debate in June: “If you go to every hospital in this country and you ask them one question, which is, ‘How would it have been for you last year if every one of your bills were paid at the Medicare rate?’ Every single hospital administrator said they would close.”
