NRAs new gun-sales pitch: America is a war zone and the violent left is coming for you

Wayne LaPierre's fantasies of "violent leftists" may sell more guns and will surely encourage more violence

After Trumps immigration order, anxiety grows in Floridas farm fields

Rumors about deportation raids started to circulate around the fields again, so Catalina Sanchez and her husband began to calculate the consequences of everything they did.

Cirilo Perez, 36, had to go to work because the tomato crop was getting low, and he needed to pick as much as he could as fast as he could. Sanchez’s medical checkup would have to wait — going to a clinic was too risky. What they fretted most about was what to do with their daughter Miriam — a natural-born citizen in the third grade — who they worried would come home one day to an empty trailer.

“When she leaves, I wonder if it will be the last time I see her,” Sanchez, 26, said on a recent evening.

As President Trump moves to turn the full force of the federal government toward deporting undocumented immigrants, a newfound fear of the future has already cast a pall over the tomato farms and strawberry fields in the largely undocumented migrant communities east of Tampa.

Would you like to tell the White House what you think?

Well now you can:
Email just received from The White House <info@mail.whitehouse.gov>


In just two days, President Donald J. Trump will deliver his highly anticipated first Address to a Joint Session of Congress.

There is an incredible spirit of optimism sweeping across the Nation, and in preparation for this address, the President has hosted numerous listening sessions at the White House. During these meetings he has heard from men and women from all over the country about issues that are impacting American families, communities, and workers.

Now is your chance to give your input. We want to know what issues you want President Trump to focus on and your ideas for the future of our country.

It will only take a couple minutes to complete the survey. https://click.mail.whitehouse.gov/?qs=066c0d208ba0e2b7029001a5eb2ec16201b17488ddb103a1c0879139fd790693c0c7a9e5c82f24f7dbb257ba478025815964270d383cda3b

The President is checking off the promises he made to the American people, and he won’t stop until the job is done.

The forgotten men and women of this great Nation will be forgotten no longer. That is the heart of this movement. As President Trump has made clear, this is your country and this is your Government, and now we want to hear from you.

Goldman Sacked: How Artificial Intelligence Will Transform Wall Street

For the past year, we as a society have been worried sick about artificial intelligence eating the jobs of 3 million truck drivers. Turns out that a more imminently endangered species are the Wall Street traders and hedge fund managers who can afford to buy Lamborghinis and hire Elton John to play their Hamptons house parties.

So maybe “hooray for AI” on this one?

Financial giants such as Goldman Sachs and many of the biggest hedge funds are all switching on AI-driven systems that can foresee market trends and make trades better than humans. It’s been happening, drip by drip, for years, but a torrent of AI is about to wash through the industry, says Mark Minevich, a New York-based investor in AI and senior adviser to the U.S. Council on Competitiveness. High-earning traders are going to get unceremoniously dumped like workers at a closing factory.

Ever wonder why Faux News watchers are so stupid?

Guest Says Network ‘Solely Responsible’ For Identifying Him As ‘National Security Advisor’


It would appear as if one recent guest on The O’Reilly Factor brought in to speak about the threat of immigration in Sweden is not who he seems to be.

On Thursday’s night broadcast, a segment on Sweden’s status as a refugee-friendly nation featured Anne-Sofie Naslund, the U.S. correspondent for Expressen, and Nils Bildt, who was described by an on-screen chyron (with verbatim accompanying introduction by O’Reilly himself) as, “Swedish Defense and National Security Advisor.” An on-screen graphic leading into the segment read, “One third of all Swedish women no longer feel secure in their neighborhoods.”

But by Friday night some in the Swedish Twittersphere began to speculate that the segment guest Nils Bildt — who told O’Reilly that Swedish politicians have “absolutely… no systemic plan for integrating mass amounts of immigrants to become productive members of society,” — was not who he said he was. Or, at least, who he agreed to be at the alleged design of the network.

Bildt provided the following statement to Mediaite (emphasis mine):

Suffice to say I am an independent political advisor. Fox News is solely responsible for the header or title used. I cannot comment on that. Sorry for any confusion caused, but needless to say I think that is not really the issue, the issue is Swedish refusal to discuss their social problems and issues.

Rubio calls his constituents rude and stupid

defends town hall stance

Activits didn't give up on Sen. Marco Rubio after seeing him yesterday at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami and challenging him to hold a town hall. Later that day came this exchange in which Rubio explains that "people get rude and stupid, on both sides."
