President Obama said he would regard any effort to round up and deport Dreamers as an attack on American "core values" that would cause him to speak out publicly. The so-called Dreamers, young people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, "for all practical purposes are American kids," Obama said at what is expected to be the final news conference of his tenure. "The notion that we would just arbitrarily or because of politics punish those kids, when they didn´t do something themselves ... would merit my speaking out," he said. Obama´s administration has protected more than 700,000 such young people
President Barack Obama announced his plan to free Chelsea Manning (who changed his name from Bradley) after leaking classified military documents to Wikileaks and being sentenced to 35 years in prison for his crimes. Once in prison, Manning went on a hunger strike to demand sex change surgery in prison, which was granted by officials at the cost of American taxpayers. Obama included Manning on a list of prisoner commutations announced late Tuesday afternoon, allowing him to be set free on May 17, 2017. During the White House press briefing, press secretary Josh Earnest noted the “stark” differences between Manning and

Trump scored an approval rating of just 40 percent in a new CNN / ORC poll. His approval rating was identical in an ABC News / Washington Post poll. Trump doesn´t appear to won over converts through his handling of the transition period. Disapproval of his transition handling has jumped to 52 per cent in the CNN poll, an increase of 7 points from
As this administration draws to a close, Audrey Edwards is packing as fast as the Obamas. By January 20, Inauguration Day, she´ll be nearly 6,000 miles away from Brooklyn not watching the festivities in Paris. A journalist and real estate agent, she first got the idea to leave the US when former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani ran for president in 2008. But when Trump rode down that gilded escalator, called Mexicans rapists, and announced his candidacy for Commander-in-Chief, Edwards put friends on notice: "If somebody as crazy as this guy gets in, I´m out of here." She plans to spend

President Obama issued a farewell warning to President-elect Donald Trump, saying he would jump off the political sidelines if Trump goes against certain ´core values.´ At his last scheduled news conference before leaving office on Friday, Obama said if there was ´systemic discrimination,´ efforts to ´silence dissent´ or to ´roll back voting rights,´ he would be ´speaking out.´ It was among his most activist descriptions of his next act, and indicates Obama may be rethinking his post-presidency role and heeding the urgings of some activists to play a stronger function in the leaderless Democratic Party as it navigates the Trump

Monday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said if President-elect Donald Trump or staff on his campaign had “collusion” or “exchanges of information,” with Russian government officials about former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, that would justify impeachment.

The protest was initiated by Mark Milano, 60, and organized by the “Rise and Resist” activist group.
