Acclaimed singer Barbra Streisand is joining the list of disgruntled celebrities threatening to leave America if Donald Trump is elected president. She made the comments during an interview with Sydney-based journalist Michael Usher during an Australian news program broadcast on Sunday. “He has no facts. I don’t know, I can’t believe it,” Streisand said, referring to Trump. “I’m either coming to your country [Australia], if you’ll let me in, or Canada.” A “thrilled” Hillary Clinton supporter, Streisand has spent the last few weeks campaigning for her preferred candidate. "I´m spending an evening campaigning with Hillary in New York City next week, and
The Obama White House may designate certain state voting systems as "pieces of critical infrastructure," which would give federal technology experts "more of a role in assisting the administrators of those networks as they deter intrusions," White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters on Monday. "That´s something that´s being discussed by senior members of the president´s National Security team," Earnest added. (Snip) "We certainly will continue to work in coordination with state and local officials, even short of that (critical infrastructure) designation to offer them advice and assistance, at their request, to ensure that they are protecting their systems," Earnest said
Last week saw one of the most remarkable moments of this most remarkable political season. A major politician defended the conservative movement and the Republican party from guilt-by-association with a fringe group of racists, anti-Semites, and conspiracy theorists who have jumped enthusiastically on the Donald Trump train: the so-called alt-right. “This is not conservatism as we have known it,” the politician said. “This is not Republicanism as we have known it.” The politician was Hillary Clinton, and that’s what’s astonishing. Clinton is normally comfortable unjustly condemning conservatism and the GOP for the sins of bigotry and prejudice, not exonerating it.
Donald Trump is planning to speak at a predominantly black church in Detroit next weekend, his campaign announced Monday. Pastor Mark Burns, a Trump supporter, said in a Trump press release that he would be “speaking at the only African American owned and operated national Christian television network, The Impact Network,” on Saturday morning in Detroit. He’ll be interviewed by Wayne Jackson at Great Faith Ministries. Burns said in the release that Trump would be answering questions relevant to African Americans, like “unemployment, making our streets safe and creating better opportunities for all,” and then he’ll deliver a speech on
139 shares 156 View comments The State Department says about 30 emails that may be related to the 2012 attack on U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya, are among the thousands of Hillary Clinton emails recovered during the FBI´s recently closed investigation into her use of a private server. Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta Tuesday that an undetermined number of the emails among the 30 were not included in the 55,000 pages previously provided by Clinton. The State Department´s lawyer said it would need until the end of September to review the emails and redact potentially classified information before they are released. Donald
Speaking from Bangladesh Tuesday morning, Secretary of State John Kerry suggested members of the media stop covering (Islamic) terrorism so people won´t "know what´s going on." Kerry attempted to preempt his statement by implying media coverage creates copy cats and promotes more terrorism. "If you decide one day you’re going to be a terrorist and you’re willing to kill yourself, you can go out and kill some people. You can make some noise...perhaps the media would do us all a service if they didn’t cover it quite as much. People wouldn’t know what’s going on," Kerry said. While the copy
A sad, sordid tale apparently came to an end Monday, at least until the next swim in the muck, with graphic evidence that former Rep. (and now former Daily News occasional columnist) Anthony Weiner was caught in the pathetic act of sexting a virtual stranger once again. We leave it to the couple, their friends and family — and Donald Trump — to analyze the decision of Weiner and Huma Abedin, his wife and a top Hillary Clinton aide, to separate. We leave it to psychologists to determine precisely what sick thing it says about the onetime mayoral aspirant that, after a
