Hillary Clinton could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue...

Andrea Junker
Hillary Clinton could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and do nothing, and they would say she invited Osama bin Laden to Camp David three days before 9/11.

Pregnant Migrant Crossed the U.S. Border Experiencing Contractions. American Drs Stopped her labor


A Heavily Pregnant Migrant Crossed the U.S. Border Experiencing Contractions. American Doctors Stopped Her Labor, Then Sent Her Back to Mexico

(MATAMOROS, Mexico) — Eight-and-a-half-months pregnant and experiencing contractions, an El Salvadoran woman crossed the Rio Grande — only to be apprehended by Border Patrol. She was not allowed to stay.

Agents took her to the hospital, where doctors gave her medication to stop the contractions. And then, according to the woman and her lawyer, she was almost immediately sent back to Mexico. There, she joined the more than 38,000 people forced to wait across the border for immigration court hearings under a rapidly expanding Trump administration policy. And her plight highlights the health risks and perils presented by the “Remain in Mexico” program.

The woman was waiting Thursday with her 3-year-old daughter in a makeshift tent camp in Matamoros, Mexico, next to an international bridge, due to give birth any day, said her attorney, Jodi Goodwin.

Air Force just threw Donald Trump under the bus


Mike Pence’s decision to stay at a Trump resort on the taxpayer dime has set off a chain of events, making it possible for the media to expose that the Air Force has been pumping money into a Trump-owned property as well. Now things have escalated, prompting the Air Force to throw Trump under the bus.

Earlier this weekend it was reported that Air Force crew members stopped at Donald Trump’s Turnberry property in Scotland for what couldn’t possibly have been above-board reasons. This led the House Oversight Committee to immediately launch an investigation into why the U.S. military was improperly lining Trump’s pockets.

In response, the Air Force has confirmed to Politico that seven Air Force crew members did indeed stay at Turnberry in March of this year. It’s not difficult to figure out why the Air Force is throwing Trump under the bus so quickly. Whatever he did as Commander-in-Chief to coerce Air Force personnel into spending money at his resort, he’s sullied the reputation of the United States military in the process.

Donald Trump will no doubt attempt to interfere with any Air Force effort to formally cooperate with the House Oversight Committee probe. But by publicly confirming that the incident did indeed happen, the Air Force is signaling to Congress that it’s eager to provide information about this Trump scandal by any unofficial means possible.

female prisoner paralyzed from neck down after beating by 4 male guards

On Aug. 21, Weimar was asked to clean a toilet at the Lowell facility as part of a work detail — but a pre-existing hip condition that caused her pain rendered her unable to do so, according to the lawsuit.

She allegedly requested and was denied a “reasonable accommodation for her physical disability in connection with her prison work assignment” and “a confrontation ensued.”

“Under FDC policy and procedure, prison officials should have called medical personnel to intervene once Plaintiff Cheryl Weimar declared an inmate medical emergency,” the lawsuit says. “The more Plaintiff Cheryl Weimar complained of her physical condition, the more angry, aggressive, and violent the John Doe Defendants became. “

Eventually the guards snapped, according to the lawsuit.

“One or more of the John Doe Defendants slammed Plaintiff Cheryl Weimar to the ground” and “while down, they brutally beat her with blows to her head, neck, and back,” it continues. “At least one John Doe Defendant elbowed Plaintiff Cheryl Weimar in the back of her neck, causing her to suffer a broken neck.”

The guards then allegedly dragged Weimar “like a rag doll to a nearby wheelchair, allowing her head to bounce along the ground along the way” before taking her “outside the compound so they could continue their brutal attack in an area that was not covered by surveillance cameras.”

The lawsuit says Weimar is now a quadriplegic who has to breathe and be fed through tubes. She is seeking “compensatory damages, including for permanent physical injury, disfigurement, and emotional pain and suffering… for attorney’s fees and costs incurred in connection with this litigation, and for such other relief as this court deems appropriate.”


boy bullied because of his homemade a homemade UT shirt, UT now selling shirt based on his design




Fans come to aid for boy who made makeshift 'UT' shirt because he didn't have one

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — A boy who couldn’t show off his favorite college team in another state on a special day got a "nation of Volunteers" coming to his aid.

A boy at a school near Orlando, Florida wanted to participate in a "College Day Colors" school spirit event.

He's a University of Tennessee Volunteers fan and had an orange shirt, but no UT lettering. So, he made his own logo, pinned it to his shirt - and got teased.

"Volunteer nation" got wind of the bullying, and came to his aid. A Facebook post from Interim President Randy Boyd read:

"I was touched to learn of a young Florida school student’s heart for the University of Tennessee, and I LOVED his imagination behind designing his own shirt. So many of us admire his love for UT and it’s awesome to see everyone step up to send him some UT gear!
Several school departments put together a "pride pack" for the boy, and hundreds of fans helped out from all over, including some from rival city Gainesville, Florida.

A deli in Knoxville pitched in too, sending supplies and a reminder to bullies: "You mess with one of us, you mess with all of us. Vol means all."

The university has created a "College Colors Day Tee" inspired by the student's shirt.



KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Vol Shop announced it is taking pre-orders for shirts based on a Florida boy's now-viral makeshift Vol design.

A Florida elementary school teacher didn't know the response she would get when she posted on September 4 to social media about one of her students, a Vol fan.

In little more than a day, Laura Snyder's post on Facebook got more than 2,000 comments and shares after she posted a picture of her young student's makeshift Vol shirt.

In the post, Snyder said, "Last week, my elementary school participated in college colors day. When I told my students about this day a week before, this particular child came to me and told me that he wanted to wear a University of Tennessee shirt, but he didn’t have one."

Snyder said her student was "SO EXCITED" to wear an orange shirt, and when the college colors day came, she said she was surprised that he made a makeshift UT label for the shirt made out of paper.

However, Snyder said some other students had bullied him over the sign, and "He was DEVASTATED." Snyder said she wanted to get him a UT shirt and asked her Facebook friends if anyone had any connections with UT.

Little did she know that her request would get such a big response! The post had been up less than two days when the University of Tennessee responded.

Jim Delaney, the UT Associate Athletic Director for Marketing and Experience, told WVLT News that the post had been shared with them earlier on September 5.

"As a marketing and fan experience guy, I absolutely loved the creativity that he showed there. And it got back to us and to the football team and to campus here, to the Vol Shop. And so we've all collectively come together, and we are sending him what we call a Volunteer proud pack."

Poor Pence..falling on his sword

Pence's chief of staff, Marc Short, said the detour to Doonbeg was suggested by the president. But the vice president's office subsequently issued a statement saying the trip to Doonbeg, where Pence has familial ties, was "solely" the idea of the vice president and his staff.

Short told a New York Times reporter the vice president would cover the costs for his family's stay.


Pence loses,,,has to foot bill when he probably didnt want to stay at trumps.hotel.

Orthodox Jews sick of being 'photographed like animals' by tourists

Brooklyn’s ultra-Orthodox Jewish residents are fed up with tourists who swarm their insular neighborhoods by the busload — all to gawk at their clothing and customs.

“People snap pictures of you like you’re on some sort of display — like you’re in a zoo,” said Chaim, 42, who lives in Williamsburg’s Satmar community and asked that his last name be withheld. “We are people, not animals to be photographed.”

Sightseeing groups venture into Williamsburg and Crown Heights several times a week, some via tour-bus companies InterviajesNY, Tour America and Civitatis. The three offer so-called “contrast” tours of various cultural communities in Queens, Manhattan, Brooklyn and The Bronx — with one touting the “numerous memorials to gang members who were killed in shootouts” in that borough.

The tours — which cost from $40 to $70 — have been going on for years, but locals say that this summer the throngs, and the tensions they cause, have reached a new high.

“Lately they’re out there every day by the hundreds, and it’s become a ‘must see’ for tourists,” said Max Hauer, 41, who lives in Williamsburg’s Satmar area. He added that he has been photographed many times without his consent.

“They see me as a freak,” said Hauer. “They see us as people from another world [and] if you’re not seen as human, then they think it’s OK” to take photos and stare.

Hauer blames the uptick on a recent cultural obsession with his way of life, thanks to the documentary “One of Us” and the Israeli series “Shtisel,” both popular on Netflix
