    Part of Bill O’Reilly’s problem at Fox: Few people there actually like him
    April 19, 2017: 9:43 AM ET

    Bill O’Reilly has for years been Fox’s most valuable on-air talent. He may also have been its loneliest.
    The embattled primetime host is widely disliked at Fox News and its parent company 21st Century Fox, both feared and loathed for his outsized ego and rude temperament, according to six current and former high-ranking sources at the company.

    Even 21st Century Fox executive chairman Rupert Murdoch, who has stood by O’Reilly amid recent revelations about sexual harassment allegations, does not have a close personal relationship with his star primetime host, several of these sources said.

    ICE is now purposefully going after the non-violent and breaking up families as a scare tactic.

    Mother of four deported to Mexico
    04/19/17 01:04 PM EDT

    A mother of four U.S.-born children was deported to Mexico on Wednesday morning.

    An attorney for Maribel Trujillo Diaz said that she was put on a plane bound for Mexico after a weeklong detention at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) center in Louisiana.

    “We are disappointed and outraged that ICE has chosen not to exercise prosecutorial discretion despite the thousands of calls and nationwide advocacy from community members, elected officials, and faith leaders,” said Kathleen Kersh, a lawyer with Advocates for Basic Legal Equality, which represented Trujillo Diaz, in a statement.
    […]
    Trujillo Diaz’s case reportedly led to vigils and protests in Ohio, where she lived. Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio), also expressed concerns with the action last week, according to The Associated Press.

    Man it’s so funny to see people pulling out receipts on the hateful things that were said about Serena. Calling her a man or a gorilla. And now you have some of the same black men who went along with that hateful racist shit saying “Why didn’t Serena give the brothers a chance?”. She always dated black men and decided to get serious with a white man who wanted to take the next step. This isn’t to say that all black men denigrated her and her sister, but there was and is a minority of black men online that called her horrible names along with racist white people. I also wouldn’t be surprised if some are trolls pretending to be black. But please don’t try to revise history and pretend that those hateful things weren’t said. Even if you have a different preference you don’t need to say racist shit that has been said to demean black women for years.

    • Alma98

      I just wish her happiness that she so rightly deserves. Serena dated plenty of black men so they can gtfoohwtbs. I don’t hear them whining about black athletes marrying white women or women who aren’t black either.

      • jziglar

        Yep. I’m very happy for her.

    Trump administration certifies Iran complying with nuclear deal, extends sanctions relief
    Apr 19th 2017 9:47AM

    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson certified on Tuesday evening that Iran is complying with the terms of former President Barack Obama’s historic deal to roll back its nuclear program. The certification, made to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), extends sanctions relief to Iran.

    The move resulted in speculation President Donald Trump’s administration is trying to distance itself from Trump’s hostile campaign-trail rhetoric on the deal.

    Tillerson released a letter to Ryan that said, “Iran is compliant through April 18th with its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action” — the formal name of the nuclear deal. Tillerson also wrote he remained concerned Iran is a “leading state sponsor of terror” and still has to evaluate whether the U.S. will lift any sanctions.

    For second day in a row, two Russian bombers have been intercepted while flying in international airspace off Alaska http://abcn.ws/2pDa32Q

    For the second time in as many days, a pair of Russian bombers have flown close to Alaska, this time coming as close as 35 nautical miles to the U.S. coastline, according to a U.S. official.

    The two days of Russian flights mark the first time in more than two years that Russian military aircraft have flown close to the U.S. mainland.

    Two Russian TU-95 “Bear” bombers flew a path along the Aleutian Islands Tuesday evening headed northeast toward the mainland, the official said.

    Though they were flying in international airspace, they had entered the U.S. military’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) that extends 200 nautical miles from shore. Unidentified military aircraft are asked to identify themselves while transiting that zone. U.S. airspace extends 12 miles from the U.S. coastline.

    Afternoon Fam,

    I hope everyone is engaging in self-care.

    Pluto is the planet of change and transformation. It goes retrograde (appears to move backwards) tomorrow, April 20. This is what the astrologyking.com has to say about Pluto retrograde:

    Pluto retrograde 2017 brings opportunities for progress but a number of big obstacles will have to be overcome to get there. An internal investigation is needed to root out a barrier to progress and eliminate it. The involvement of Jupiter suggests this problem relates to greed, excess, faith or ideology.

    So, in other words, to get to happy, people/places/things that are problematic need to be let go, eliminated, eradicated, rooted out.

    Exhibit 1: Chaffetz, Jason; O’Reilly Bill.

    They won’t be the last ones. Grab yer assess – it’s gonna be a wild one!

    grain of salt but timing

    http://www.palmerreport.com/politics/intel-source-fbi-discovers-kremlin-is-blackmailing-jason-chaffetz-over-donald-trump-and-russia/2305/

    According to an intel community source, the FBI has learned that Russia has “kompromat” blackmail material on Chaffetz and has been using it to keep him in line with regard to Trump’s Russia scandal.The intel source comes by way of political pundit Louise Mensch, whose inside sources have a history of being correct about FISA warrants and other matters. Here’s how she phrases it: “Sources say there is kompromat on Jason Chaffetzl that this is why he turned and that FBI know it” (link). She does not go on to reveal what that blackmail material is, but the key phrase here is that “he turned.”Chaffetz is in a powerful position as the chair of one of the committees that should be investigating the Donald Trump campaign’s Russian collusion. But he’s managed to keep that off the table, forcing other Congressional committees to pick up the slack. Mensch is suggesting that Russia has “turned” Chaffetz to the point where it controls him, ostensibly ensuring that his committee will never investigate Trump-Russia. However, with other sources saying the FBI investigation into Trump-Russia is so far along that the first big arrests could come as soon as next week (link), and that Rudy Giuliani’s request for a deal has been denied because his cooperation is no longer even needed (link), Chaffetz doesn’t appear to be in a position to hold up the works.

    Um Sepia…you were wondering if the players who said they weren’t gonna show up, did indeed stay away. Well a better question is WHO ACTUALLY SHOWED UP?? LMAO!!!!!!!!

    while disappointed, i can’t fully blame perez.

    that asshole schumer saddled him and the dems with bernie and put him in a horrible position.

    plus, the msm loves their new version of john mccain (and just as useless) and are always waiting to burn dems and aid the repubs in the name of ‘balance’ and will go full on if the high sparrow of unicorns is challenged or criticized.

    what price unity?

    and just think, it could be worse, he could have been also forced to tour with the manchin too

    The president has offered no public comment on the issue, even as he has rolled back regulations on mine operators, an omission that has not escaped the notice of Mr. VanSickle and other retired miners.

    “To me, that was kind of a promise he did make to us,” Mr. VanSickle said about Mr. Trump, whom he supported last fall. “He promised to help miners, not just mining companies.”

    True, though I think that the BLM ponies who kept interrupting his events didn’t help matters when it came to his campaign’s attempts to expand into a wider coalition.

    All I asked that fuq’er was to explain his use of this phrasing “BLM ponies”

    — – – – — -☻Blount in a radio interview on “The Rich Eisen Show,” said, “I just don’t feel welcome in that house.”

    Bennett told reporters after the Super Bowl: “It is what it is. People know how I feel about it. Just follow me on Twitter.” The outspoken Bennett had joked that he might move to outer space after Donald J. Trump was elected.

    – – – -☻McCourty, a team captain, told Time magazine:
    “Basic reason for me is I don’t feel accepted in the White House. With
    the president having so many strong opinions and prejudices, I believe certain people might feel accepted there while others won’t.”

    Both Bennett and McCourty last fall raised their fists in protest during the national anthem for one game. At the time, athletes in various sports were protesting racial oppression in the country.

    Branch told The Boston Globe that he was skipping the event because he was disturbed by Trump’s sexist comments captured in an “Access Hollywood” video.

    Hightower told ESPN, “Been there, done that,” having visited with a championship Alabama team.

    – – – –Amendola– thanked Trump “for the shout out” and said he had a funeral to attend.
