Donald Trump's presidency already has been one of the most controversial in U.S. history, and its ending could be just as action-packed and unpredictable as his first seven months in office.

As the 45th president deals with his stalled agenda, his sinking approval ratings and the investigations into his presidential campaign's ties to Russia, White House advisers have reportedly been warning Trump about his potential political doom: the exhaustive impeachment process that could result in his removal from the Oval Office. And he isn’t doing himself many favors.

Cumulus facing Nasdaq delisting, possible bankruptcy

WASHINGTON – Cumulus Media, which syndicates radio stars Don Imus, Mark Levin and Michael Savage, among others, is having some ratings issues of its own – on Wall Street.

On Friday, Cumulus shares were trading at 41 cents, down from $5.45 in September 2015 when Chief Executive Lew Dickey left the company. In early 2014, a share was selling at $64.04.

It is threatened with delisting by Nasdaq and is facing the distinct possibility of Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings.

GOP Congressman Buck: D.C. Corruption is Far Worse

This will be the 1st GOP book I've ever purchased. My jaw dropped to learn of this book, today. Colorado Congressman Ken Buck has released a book titled

Corruption in Washington Is ‘Worse Than You Think

The Congressman is quoted as stating:
Corruption on Capitol Hill is “worse than you think,” Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., insists.

“When you first get here, you think that you are in some sort of fairy-tale novel,” Buck said. “They wine and dine you and they show you just exactly what it’s like if you play the game. It’s a wonderful life.”

Things quickly change, however, if “you don’t play the game.”

“If you don’t play the game … it becomes a much less conformable existence here,” Buck said.

A Massachusetts hospital worker has won the largest single-ticket prize in US lottery history, a $758.7m Powerball jackpot – and immediately told her employer she wouldn’t be going back to work.

“I called and told them I will not be coming back,” Mavis Wanczyk told reporters at a news conference. “The first thing I want to do is just sit back and relax.”

US science envoy steps down, spells out "impeach" in resignation letter

Professor steps down as State Dept. science envoy, spelling out "impeach" in his resignation letter
Washington (CNN)A University of California-Berkeley energy professor resigned Wednesday from his position as a State Department science envoy, blasting President Donald Trump for recent comments on white supremacist violence in Charlottesville.

The professor, Daniel Kammen, included a less-than-subtle assessment of Trump in his resignation letter by spelling out the word "impeach" with the first letters of each paragraph.

"My view on impeachment is perhaps less formal than if I was an elected member of Congress," Kammen said in an interview with CNN, "but I don't view what the President is doing as consistent with the best interests of the United States and the global community."

DOJ drops request for IP addresses from Trump resistance

Source: The HILL

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is dropping its controversial request for visitor IP addresses related to an anti-Trump website.

The government said in a brief released Tuesday that it has "no interest" in the 1.3 million IP addresses related to the website disruptj20.org. It says it is solely focused on information that could constitute evidence related to criminal rioting on Inauguration Day.

“The Warrant — like the criminal investigation — is singularly focused on criminal activity,” the reply brief states. “It will not be used for any other purpose.”

Missouri Governor stays execution of convicted killer amid new DNA evidence

Source: CNN

A Missouri man convicted of murder will not be put to death on Tuesday night after Gov. Eric Greitens issued a stay of execution and ordered a review of his case amid new DNA evidence.

"A sentence of death is the ultimate, permanent punishment," Greitens said in a statement. "To carry out the death penalty, the people of Missouri must have confidence in the judgment of guilt. In light of new information, I am appointing a Board of Inquiry in this case."

The execution of Marcellus Williams, 48, had been scheduled for 7 p.m. ET, even as his attorneys said that DNA evidence unavailable during his 2001 trial proved his innocence.

Charlottesville Victim, De'Andre Harris, Closes GoFundMe

Dre Harris, a special needs teacher, who was Afrucan American, was brutally beaten by 4 white supremacists, with wood beams & metal rods, during the Charlottesville saga. He had to have stiches, a cast and therapy.

He started a GoFundMe page, seeking $50,000, to assist medical expenses; and he shut it down at $166,000.



Greg Palast Photojournalist Zach D. Roberts took pictures of the event, and faced terrorist who pulled a gun, in order to quash defenders coming to Dre Harris's aid.



Missouri set to execute inmate despite evidence suggesting innocence

Source: U.zk. Indeprndent

Marcellus Williams, now 48, was found guilty of the August 1998 murder of Lisha Gayle, 42, at home in St Louis. He was convicted and sentenced to death three years later.

He is scheduled to be killed by lethal injection at 6pm on Tuesday (12am GMT).

There is no physical evidence, no eyewitnesses that directly connect Williams to the murder, the DNA on the weapon wasn't his, the bloody footprint at the murder scene wasn't from Williams' shoe and was a different size, and the hair fibres found weren't his.

In 2015 the Missouri Supreme Court delayed Williams’ execution to allow for further DNA testing, but despite the new evidence it ruled last week that the killing should go ahead. Williams’ legal team is requesting a new hearing or for his sentence to be reduced to life in prison.

Why are states hell bent on executions, despite evidence to the contrary? This man received a stall, for the sake of DNA testing; which appears to be exonerating.

Kaepernick Items Added to BLM Exhibit at Smithsonian

Source: EurWeb

The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History will include items from Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest as part of its Black Lives Matter collection.

“The National Museum of African American History and Culture has nearly 40,000 items in our collection,” the museum’s sports curator, Damion Thomas, told USA Today’s A.J. Perez on Friday. “The Colin Kaepernick collection is in line with the museum’s larger collecting efforts to document the varied areas of society that have been impacted by the Black Lives Matter movement.”

The effort was spearheaded in May by sports sociologist and civil rights activist Harry Edwards.

“I said, ‘Don’t wait 50 years to try to get some memorabilia and so forth on Kaepernick'” Edwards told USA Today. “‘Let me give you a game jersey, some shoes, a picture. … And it should be put right there alongside Muhammad Ali. He’s this generation’s Ali.'”
