Washington — President Obama compared the Syrian refugees fleeing ISIS to pilgrims coming to America on the Mayflower during his Thanksgiving radio address. Since the Paris terrorist attacks Republicans have demanded America shut its doors to Syrian refugees over fear they could be terrorists. But Obama said refugees receive “the highest security checks of anyone traveling to the United States” and reminded Americas of the spirit of Thanksgiving. “Nearly four centuries after the Mayflower set sail, the world is still full of pilgrims – men and women who want nothing more than the chance for a safer, better future for themselves

The New York Times slammed Donald Trump for his “outrageous” mocking of a reporter who suffers from a congenital condition, Politico reports. “We think it’s outrageous that he would ridicule the appearance of one of our reporters,” a Times spokeswoman said Wednesday. During a campaign rally in South Carolina Tuesday night, Trump imitated Times reporter Serge Kovaleski who suffers from Arthrogryposis, a physical condition that affects the range of a person’s joints. Describing Kovaleski as a “nice reporter,” Trump mocked his atypical arm and hand motions, telling his audience in a mocking tone, “you ought to see the

WASHINGTON – Amid a growing political controversy, the Obama administration told state officials Wednesday that states do not have legal authority to refuse to accept Syrian refugees.The Office of Refugee Resettlement said in a letter to state resettlement officials that states may not deny benefits and services to refugees based on a refugee´s country of origin or religious affiliation. States that do not comply with the requirement would be breaking the law and could be subject to enforcement action, including suspension or termination of the federally funded program, according to the letter, signed by the director of

University students in Massachusetts who were upset by an image of a Confederate flag sticker on another student’s laptop were offered counseling services at Framingham State University. The offer came after the university’s “chief diversity and inclusion officer,” Sean Huddleston, described the display of the small Confederate flag sticker as a “bias incident.” According to Metrowest Daily News, students filed two “bias reports” within the past month as a result of a student displaying the flag in some way. The most recent bias incident – reported on November 19 – was a report of a student having seen a Confederate flag sticker

President Obama delivered his Thanksgiving address this morning, including a political lecture on Syrian refugees. He told Americans that Syrian refugees were just like the pilgrims who came to America on the Mayflower. “In 1620, a small band of pilgrims came to this continent, refugees who had fled persecution and violence in their native land,” he said. “Nearly 400 years later, we remember their part in the American story – and we honor the men and women who helped them in their time of need.” Obama reminded Americans to step back on Thanksgiving and remember that historically “we turn Lady

The Republican establishment is nearing full-blown panic about Donald Trump. The demise of Trump´s candidacy has been predicted by centrist Republicans and the media alike since the day it began. But there is no empirical evidence at all to suggest it is happening. (snip) “He has a real shot at this. He is the clear front-runner,” said Ron Bonjean, a consultant and former aide to GOP leaders on Capitol Hill.

Donald Trump, the presidential hopeful who believes himself so high and mighty he can’t possibly he wrong, is now claiming that he has no idea who the reporter is after mocking his physical disability just days ago. After days of defending his false claim that New Jersey Muslims were celebrating the 9/11 terror attacks by the thousands, Trump cited an article written by Serge Kovaleski, a Washington Post reporter who has since joined the New York Times. While the article only addresses rumors at the time and does nothing to make the claim truthful, Trump has run with it despite Kovaleski’s

A large group of juveniles robbed a clothing store in Georgetown on Tuesday evening and stole $13,000 worth of items, according to D.C. police. The incident happened just before 6 p.m. at the Diesel store in the 3000 block of M Street NW. More than 20 people went into the store and grabbed several items off the racks, police said. They stole four leather jackets, costing about $800, and an additional $12,000 worth of merchandise. One person who worked at the store was said to have been pushed from behind by someone in the crowd. The employee was not injured, according to police. Police described the suspects only as

ESPN Has Lost 7 Million
Subscribers The Past Two Years

According to a 10K filing from Disney today, which you can read here, ESPN now has 92 million subscribers. That´s a troubling number because just two years ago ESPN reported it had 99 million subscribers in the same 10k filing. This means ESPN is now acknowledging that it has lost seven million cable and satellite subscribers in the past two years. Given that the average ESPN subscriber pays $6.61 a channel per month, this means that ESPN has lost somewhere in the neighborhood of $550 million in subscriber revenue per year since 2013. (That´s not counting advertising dollar losses.)

From my vantage point at New Jersey´s Command Center in Liberty State Park, I looked directly across the Hudson and saw the 22-story-high flames and the black and white smoke billowing from where the World Trade Center had collapsed. I smelled the toxic confection of steel, wood, glass and flesh from across the river. Mostly, though, I recall the afternoon and evening of 9/11 as a chaos of conflicting and frequently false reports. The Department of Law and Public Safety — which was responsible for coordinating the state emergency management, law enforcement and victims´ assistance response — was flying blind

Barack Obama says he wants the truth. On November 21, the New York Times reported allegations that military intelligence officials provided the president with skewed assessments that minimized the threat from ISIS and overstated the success of U.S. efforts against the group. The Times story was an update of reporting from the Daily Beast earlier this fall. “More than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the U.S. military’s Central Command have formally complained that their reports on ISIS and al Qaeda’s branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials,” the Beast reported in September. These analysts say their

The celebration of Thanksgiving may be a beloved tradition, but one group of Native Americans has revealed what the holiday really means to them in a moving video series that dispels the historical inaccuracies and stereotypes associated with their culture. As part of Cut.com´s One Word video series, a group of men and women from the Native American community have shared their thoughts on the words: Thanksgiving, Christopher Columbus, reservation and redskins. And while many of the men and women agree that the ´redskins´ is an ´offensive´ and ´racist´ term, the group shared different opinions about what it means to
