Native American students have campus police called on them during tour for making parent 'nervous'

The Denver Post is reporting that Colorado State University officials are investigating an event that reportedly took place during a campus tour on Monday, where two Native American men were taken out of the tour after a parent on that tour called in campus police—the charge? They were making her nervous.

Police questioned the men and allowed them to rejoin the tour, but by the time they were released, the group had moved on without them. The men then returned to CSU’s Ammons Hall before leaving campus and going home to New Mexico. [...]

“This incident is sad and frustrating from nearly every angle, particularly the experience of two students who were here to see if this was a good fit for them,” university officials said in an e-mail to students Wednesday.

“As a University community, we deeply regret the experience of these students, while they were guests on our campus,” officials said.

Trump tries to clean up the mess on Twitter from Rudy Giuliani's self-immolation on Hannity

President Donald Trump tried to clean up the mess from Rudy Giuliani’s self-immolation on Fox News in a series of Thursday morning tweets.

Giuliani, who joined Trump’s legal team last month, admitted to Fox News host Sean Hannity that the president had repaid $130,000 to longtime attorney Michael Cohen for a hush money payout to porn actress Stormy Daniels.

“These agreements are,” he added, “very common among celebrities and people of wealth. In this case it is in full force and effect and will be used in Arbitration for damages against Ms. Clifford (Daniels). The agreement was used to stop the false and extortionist accusations made by her about an affair.”

“Despite already having signed a detailed letter admitting that there was no affair,” the president continued. “Prior to its violation by Ms. Clifford and her attorney, this was a private agreement. Money from the campaign, or campaign contributions, played no roll in this transaction.”

'WE ARE A FEW MONTHS AWAY' FROM ENDING SAME-SEX MARRIAGE SAYS MAT STAVER

The far right wing attorney best known for representing Kentucky court clerk Kim Davis and Alabama failed GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, says he believes in a few months the U.S. Supreme Court will end the rights to same-sex marriage and abortion. Liberty Counsel chief Mat Staver says overturning two vital Supreme Court precedents: Roe v. Wade and Obergerfell, will happen soon.
Social conservatives are "one midterm election away from eventually overturning the Roe v. Wade decision," Staver told a conservative radio host, insisting there will be one or two Supreme Court vacancies before President Trump’s ends his first term in office, as Right Wing Watch reports.

If Christian conservatives get out and vote, Staver says, Republicans can hold the U.S. Senate, and fill the next Supreme Court vacancy with a far right wing justice.

I am not sure that will be enough to rally the right wing enough to go an vote??? It might help fire up progressives though????

Infowars Host: 'Civil War Is Inevitable' If Liberals 'Continue To Exist'



Owen Shroyer, a radio host at the conspiracy theory outlet Infowars, warned listeners yesterday that he believes “civil war is inevitable” unless liberals reckon with “their own mental issues.”

During his “War Room” program yesterday, Shroyer said that his audience was right that “we have to bury [liberals] politically and culturally.” He added that as long as liberals “continue to exist,” they will “destroy this country” and “destroy this culture.”
----------------
Shroyer said, “I just feel like civil war is inevitable. I’m not going to sacrifice my country to avoid civil war. I’m not going to sacrifice my future. I mean, it’s just insane.”

Fucking wing nut - and when some deranged arsehole with a gun goes on rampage to help trigger this so called civil war he will deny that he had anything to do with triggering that......

Certainly, Unquestionably, Assuredly, Positively, Absolutely Gonna Happen!

Analytica Cambridge Analytica closing down after Facebook row

SCL Group and its Cambridge Analytica consultancy, which were at the centre of this year’s Facebook privacy row, are closing and starting insolvency proceedings.

The company has been plagued by scandal since the Observer reported that the personal data of about 50 million Americans and at least a million Britons had been harvested from Facebook and improperly shared with Cambridge Analytica.

Cambridge Analytica denies any wrongdoing, but says the negative media coverage led to its closure.

In a statement the company said it had begun insolvency proceedings in the UK and the US.

Environmental group to carve Donald Trump's face into the side of Arctic iceberg



A climate change group is raising half a million dollars with the goal of carving President Donald Trump’s face into an arctic iceberg.

The Finnish group Melting Ice is spearheading the initiative with the intention of carving a 115-foot ice sculpture of Mr Trump’s face, and have dubbed the effort “Project Trumpmore”.

They hope that they will be able to illustrate the dangers of climate change by watching to see how long the sculpture takes to melt.

Little bit of genius right there!

RICK SANTORUM: 'I DON'T KNOW' IF TRUMP HAS EVER LIED - BUT I KNOW OBAMA HAS

Santorum attempted to make the argument that there are far worse things that.

“I think that is one of the lesser situations here,” Cuomo began. “There is bad decision making on display here and swampy by definition. If what the president’s mandate was partially about was draining the swamp, getting rid of the people who will choose preference over power, why stand by this guy? The Morocco example alone. Somebody setting up a trip to Morocco and they get hired as a lobbyist.”

Santorum argued that there is “a lot of smoke here” but refused to conceded that it meant there was a fire.
---------------
Santorum responded to the comment about Trump’s lies but claiming that former President Barack Obama lied, too. It was an argument that prompted Cuomo to note his 8-year-old son knew better than to try. Santorum claimed that Obama’s lies were worse than Trump’s because, despite being considerably fewer, they were more substantive.

“Moral relativism from a practicing Catholic,” Cuomo said, calling out Santorum’s faith
