A tantrum over Tubman:
Shaheen steamed over Jacksons

New Hampshire’s Sen. Jeanne Shaheen is among those incensed that Donald Trump has spiked plans to put Harriet Tubman’s likeness on the U.S. $20 bill. It would be in place of President Andrew Jackson who, like Shaheen, was a Democrat. Trump has said that the Tubman effort is just “pure political correctness.” Sort of like the political correctness Shaheen’s party has been engaged in recently to rename events (such as Jefferson-Jackson Day fundraisers) because those Democrats were slave owners.


Democrat projection and desire to change history on full display by my senator. That she is an ignorant ignoramus is an understatement.

I say change the $20.00 bill. Harriet Tubman should be celebrated. She was a woman, a Republican gun toting abolitionist. The Republicans should celebrate her as a feminist icon. The NRA should celebrate her because she was pro 2nd amendment; and as a black, gun toting Republican woman champion of freedom the Democrats would have a hard time approving of her face on the bill.

I guess they are going to call the Jefferson-Jackson dinners the Clinton-Obama dinners because all they do is give those yahoos a bunch of loot.

Nice to see the Union Leader abandon its NeverTrumper stance. That may have happened awhile ago, but first editorial I’ve seen. I personally have no problem of ADDING a Tubman $20, along with he Jackson Bill. But replace? No. MAGA!

There is an established tradition of honoring former presidents on our paper currency. Harriet Tubman was not a president. She most certainly is an American heroine and there are other ways to honor that gallant lady. President Trump was absolutely correct about the effort to place her on the 20 dollar bill. The proposal was a deliberate trap set by a failure of a president who wished to race bait and promote discontent in our republic.

Perhaps we should substitute Martin Luther King day with Harriet Tubman day in light of all the current revelations. Why are we getting upset with Jackson and many of the other founding fathers. It was part of our history.

Good news. I'd hate to have to avoid the $20 bills. Have you SEEN that woman? Makes Michelle look like a beauty. It would be a shame to make a $20 that caused people to get ill when they look at it.

Volodymyr Zhukovskyy is what happens when you stop enforcing all the laws, for all the people. If you tell one group of individuals that, for whatever reason, there are certain laws they no longer have to abide by, it’s not long before everybody else begins to believe that there’s no reason they should be held accountable for any crimes they commit either. Here’s the deal for any society: either all the laws have to be enforced for everybody, across the board, or pretty soon they’re not going to be enforced for anybody.

After leading the harrowing rescue of an 80-year-old hiker whom family members had left to fend for himself on Mount Washington, Fish and Game officials might ask state prosecutors about pressing criminal charges. The family will likely get a bill from the agency to cover the cost of this all-night life-saving operation, officials say. The incident, which occurred last Thursday, has people in the White Mountains hiking community up in arms, among them Mike Chermin, a guide from North Conway, who was appalled that a slower hiker who is a senior citizen was left behind in what he said was a dangerous, and potentially lethal, breach of hiking etiquette.

The deputy mayor of Beni in the eastern Democratic of Congo said 13 civilians were killed late on Monday in an attack by the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) - a group thought to be linked to Islamic State. "The victims were killed by bullets and others by bladed weapons," Mayor Modeste Bakwanamaha told Reuters.

The 63-year-old farmer had stepped into a grain auger, the blade violently twisting and twirling to carry corn to a storage bin on his farm in northeastern Nebraska — and, in an instant, his left foot was sucked into the machine. He scrambled as the corkscrew-style blade inside cut off his foot and continued to pull at him, leaving him to wonder when or whether it would stop, he said. “I can remember telling myself, ‘This is not good. This is bad,’ “ he recounted Monday in a phone interview with The Washington Post.

A federal judge upheld a congressional subpoena seeking President Donald Trump’s financial records from an accounting firm, dealing a blow to the president’s efforts to resist Democratic investigations. U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta’s ruling means that Mazars USA must comply with the House Oversight and Reform Committee’s subpoena for eight years of Trump’s financial records, though the president is certain to appeal the ruling. The president filed suit last month to block the subpoena, arguing that it amounted to an abuse of congressional authority.

Warriors forward Draymond Green also raised the issue on LeBron James’ HBO Show “The Shop,” saying he took offense to the term. Silver said he respects Green’s position. “I don’t want to overreact

Climate change is threatening ancient Greek monuments, among them the Acropolis, one of the most-visited archaeological sites in the world, scientists said. Air pollution and acid rain are eroding marbles, while extreme weather phenomena such as droughts or torrential rains have led ancient walls and temples to develop structural problems. Even though the Acropolis hill, where the Parthenon stands, is probably Greece's best preserved archaeological site, there are signs that climate change has been increasingly affecting the monuments that stand on the hill.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is on board with Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) proposal to erase all student loan debt, because she has not paid off her student loans either, she said Monday. While making remarks in support of Sanders’ sweeping bill to cancel $1.6 trillion in student loan debt, Ocasio-Cortez discussed her “personal stake” in the fight. She wants to make the bill a reality, in part, because she has outstanding student loans. “I will be completely honest. I will disclose my personal stake in this fight because I have student loans too,” she said Monday. “And I think it’s so funny. A year ago, I was waiting tables in a restaurant.”

The forgotten man that he speaks to is a person that finally feels like they’re being taken seriously, they’re being paid attention to. And he’s concerned about their issues.”

When the rape allegations brought against President Trump by advice columnist E.

That’s been playing out over the weekend already, but one interview that Carroll did on Friday night caught my attention. She appeared on MSNBC and one of the expected subjects came up. She’s made a very serious charge in her upcoming book, far beyond any sort of harassment or inappropriate touching, so is she going to bring charges? Apparently not. That’s her call to make, of course, but why? It’s her reason
