ISIS Second In Command Killed In Syria http://www.livenewschat.eu/2016/08/isis-second-in-command-killed-in-syria/ Tue, 30 Aug 2016 18:50:02 +0000 http://www.livenewschat.eu/?p=61220 Islamic State spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani has been killed, ISIS announced Tuesday through its Amaq News Agency. The outlet cited a military source saying Adnani “was martyred while surveying the operations to repel the military campaigns against Aleppo.” But Adnani was far more than a mere mouthpiece for the group and had a $5 million bounty on his head from the United States. An August report from The New York Times placed Adnani as the leader of a vast network of operatives called the Emni, overseeing “lieutenants empowered to plan attacks in different regions of the world.” It was that network that planned attacks across Europe in the past year, the Times reported.

According to a Mother Jones report, at least three non-citizen Trump models were employed by the agency without the proper work visas—two of whom said they were encouraged by Trump Model Management to purposely deceive Customs officials about why they were visiting the United States and to lie about their intended place of stay. In an interview, Canadian-born model Rachel Blais said that Trump’s agency is “the most crooked agency I’ve ever worked for, and I’ve worked for quite a few,” and several others recalled cramped, overcrowded housing conditions and the company’s insistence on charging high rent for the model dormitories. “It is like modern-day slavery” Blais added.]]>

Michael Moore appeared last nigth on Seth Meyer’s talk show and admitted that Donald Trump “played” him during filming for Roseanne Barr’s old television talk show in 1998.

Trump told producers he was nervous to appear with Moore and threatening to walk out on the show. Moore, understandably, felt guilty and went over to try and reason with Trump and put him at ease.

“So I walk over to him, and I said, ‘Mr. Trump, it’s Michael Moore.’ And I shook his hand, and it’s all clammy.” Moore said, before adding “I don’t remember the size of the hand.”

Moore had just filmed the documentary Roger and Me about General Motors CEO Roger Smith and the plants he closed down in Flint, Michigan, during the mid-1980s.

“I’m having to talk him off the ledge from this,” Moore continued. “You know, grow some gonads here.” As a result of Trump’s “fears” Moore was much nicer to Trump on the show, instead of hitting him hard about corporate practices. He admitted that it was years later he realized Trump “played” him. “I felt sorry for him, and the hands were so wet!” Moore explained.

Trump was a different person in the late 1990s, however. Moore recalls that the New York businessman “was extremely progressive,” he described. “He was saying we should invest more in education, and we need health care. He said all the things that Hillary’s saying. That’s why I know that it’s just a con. The whole f*cking thing. It’s a scam, a con, and it’s rigged.”

DOJ: Trump’s Early Businesses Blocked Blacks

A 1973 suit against Trump and the Trump Organization claimed that superintendents at Trump properties would mark African American’s applications with a ‘C’ for ‘Colored’ and other racial codes.

When an African American showed up to rent an apartment owned by a young real-estate scion named Donald Trump and his family, the building superintendent did what he claimed he’d been told to do. He allegedly attached a separate sheet of paper to the application, marked with the letter “C.”

“C” for “Colored.”
According to the Department of Justice, that was the crude code that ensured the rental would be denied.

Details of this secret system, as well as other practices that the Trump organization allegedly used to exclude black residents from its buildings in Brooklyn, Queens, and Norfolk, Virginia, in the 1970s, were recorded in a lawsuit brought by the DOJ against Trump and his father, Fred, in 1973 for alleged violations of the Fair Housing Act.
The Trumps responded to the Department of Justice with characteristic combativeness. They counter-sued the federal government for $100 million.

The lawsuit—which Trump Management settled in 1975 with a consent decree, and which they noted at the time did not constitute an admission of wrongdoing—detailed numerous instances of a racial code that Trump-owned buildings allegedly used to indicate if an applicant was black or otherwise “undesirable.”

A super who worked for the Trumps, Thomas Miranda, allegedly told the DOJ that Trump Management staffers had instructed him to “attach a separate sheet of paper to every application submitted by a prospective ‘colored’ renter.”

“Miranda was to write a ‘C’ in order to indicate to management that the prospective renter was ‘colored,’” the DOJ noted in court documents.

The hashtag #AmnestyDon became the number one trending topic on Twitter Monday morning after MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough went into an anti-Donald Trump rant.

“Think about this: for 14 months, Amnesty Don– and a lot of people are calling him Amnesty Don. People are saying it, they’re calling him Amnesty Don. Amnesty Don, that’s what people are calling him.. I’m not calling him that, Amnesty Don. Hashtag #AmnestyDon,” he said.

Scarborough managed to use the term “Amnesty Don” twenty times in the next minute and a half, during which he argued that Trump had flip-flopped on his position on illegal immigration so much that even his own campaign didn’t know his position.

Former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning had a joke about her appearance, too: “I just realized that I’m not the only athlete up here tonight. As you all know, earlier this year Ann Coulter won the Kentucky Derby.”

There were also lines about Coulter’s political views. “Ann Coulter has written 11 books, 12 if you count Mein Kampf,” said comedian Nikki Glaser. “Ann, you’re awful. The only person you will ever make happy is the Mexican who digs your grave.”

“She seems stiff and conservative, but Ann gets wild in the sheets. Just ask the Klan,” said Roast Master David Spade. “It looks like she’s having a good time. I haven’t seen her laugh this hard since Trayvon Martin got shot.”

Folk singer Jewel won the crowd over with this: “As a feminist I can’t support everything that’s been said tonight,” she said, “but as someone who hates Ann Coulter, I’m delighted.”

But British comedian Jimmy Carr really let Coulter have it. He called her “repugnant,” “hateful,” and “hatchet-faced.” “But it’s not too late to change that,” he said. “You could kill yourself.”

Lowe, who was a bit shaken at the end of the night after having to relive his troubled past in front of his family, didn’t think any of the jokes were out of line. He likened the event to a professional sport. “If you’re in the NFL, hit hard. This is the NFL, you’re here to hit. There are other places to do soft jokes … if you’re on the Comedy Central Roast, you better bring your A-game.”

The suspension—applicable only to the southern town of Villeneuve-Loubet, near Nice—is still pending a definitive ruling, but temporary judgments in France’s legal system are often handed down even if a court elects to take more time to prepare a final ruling. The widely-publicized ban on the full-body swimwear has received international criticism. Lawyers for the human rights group argued that the swim-wear bans not only infringe on the freedom of those wearing them, they also feed fear in French communities. Officials say the suspension will likely set the precedent for other areas that want to prohibit burkinis via mayoral decrees. The bans were popularized following multiple attacks in France, including the Bastille Day attack in Nice.]]>

CNN Cancels HLN ‘Dr. Drew’ After Hillary Clinton Illness Claims http://www.livenewschat.eu/2016/08/cnn-cancels-dr-drew-after-hillary-clinton-illnes-claims/ Fri, 26 Aug 2016 14:35:07 +0000 http://www.livenewschat.eu/?p=61080 CNN has canceled Drew Pinsky’s HLN show, Dr. Drew On Call, just eight days after Pinsky made comments on a radio show questioning the health of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Pinsky’s show, which is six years old, will air for the last time Sept. 22. Mirroring concerns voiced by Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani, Pinsky said on a program aired Aug. 17 that he was “gravely concerned not just about her health, but her health care.” A July 2015 letter from Dr. Lisa Bardack—who has treated Clinton—concluded that she “is in excellent physical condition and fit to serve as president of the United States.” But Pinsky’s reading of the Bardack letter disagreed with that asssessment, and he shared his own on the radio show. CNN Executive Vice President Ken Jautz said in a statement that he and Pinsky “mutually agreed” on the cancellation, but Jautz gave no reason for it.

————————————————————————-

Trump is mastering the racist wink trick. Talk about moderating your stance on immigrants, but then invite a well-known hardline bigot on stage to effectively endorse you.

————————————————————-

Nigel Farage said mass immigration was making parts of the country appear “unrecognisable” and like “a foreign land” at Ukip’s spring conference on Friday.

The speech put immigration at the heart of Ukip’s campaign for the European and local elections, which Farage followed with a declaration that he would resign if his party failed to win a seat in parliament in 2015. But he appeared to concede some concerns raised by Ukip about the scale of immigration from Bulgaria and Romania after the lifting of transitional controls in January may have been unfounded. The greatest potential immigration threat now came from the eurozone, Farage claimed.

“In scores of our cities and market towns, this country in a short space of time has frankly become unrecognisable,” Farage told his audience in Torquay. “Whether it is the impact on local schools and hospitals, whether it is the fact in many parts of England you don’t hear English spoken any more. This is not the kind of community we want to leave to our children and grandchildren.”

There are people under the rubble,” Mayor Sergio Perozzi said in a radio interview on RAI. “There’s been a landslide and a bridge might collapse.” According to the Associated Press, a family of four in the town of Accumoli was “trapped under debris, without any signs of life.” The quake hit at 3:36 a.m. local time.
Italian media said several aftershocks were reported, including one that was a magnitude 5.5. Many of the buildings in the affected towns are centuries old, and a powerful earthquake would easily crumble them. A USGS geophysicist told CNN the region could be facing “very significant losses.” Prime Minister Matteo Renzi’s office said in a tweet that the government is “in contact with all affected areas” and was deploying rescue efforts.

North Korea Test-Fires Ballistic Missile From Submarine [VIDEO] http://www.livenewschat.eu/2016/08/north-korea-test-fires-ballistic-missile-from-submarine-video/ Wed, 24 Aug 2016 16:03:08 +0000 http://www.livenewschat.eu/?p=61014 North Korea has test-fired another ballistic missile, U.S. and South Korean officials said. The missile, a KN-11 launched from a submarine, was fired toward Japan and traveled about 300 miles before landing in the Sea of Japan. The U.S. and South Korea will soon participate in annual military drills, which often provoke a response from Pyongyang. The launch is an indication that the Hermit Kingdom’s missile technology has progressed, in defiance of United Nations sanctions against the launches. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the newest provocation “poses a grave threat to Japan’s security, and is an unforgivable act that damages regional peace and stability markedly.”]]>

Lawsuit: Fox News Is a Misogynistic Cult http://www.livenewschat.eu/2016/08/lawsuit-fox-news-is-a-misogynistic-cult/ Tue, 23 Aug 2016 15:36:42 +0000 http://www.livenewschat.eu/?p=61005 Former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros has filed a lawsuit claiming that she faced retaliation after complaining about sexual harassment from the cable channel’s former chief, Roger Ailes. In the suit, filed Monday, Tantaros claims the network “masquerades as a defender of traditional family values, but behind the scenes, it operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency, and misogyny.” Tantaros said the punishment came down from top executives. Ailes resigned in July after host Gretchen Carlson claimed in a lawsuit that he sexually harassed her and canceled her program after she rejected his advances, a move that led the way for many more allegations against him.]]>
