Should Donald Trump BAN Islam In American Schools?

Image
The Supreme Court ruled 5-3 that schools may not teach Sharia law to students.
On 7 April 2017, the web site USA Politics Today published a report — followed by a series of posts from questionable sites — saying that the United States Supreme Court had ruled it illegal for U.S. schools to teach “Sharia law.” According to the story: The Supreme Court of the United States just sided with President Trump in a landmark case the mainstream media hasn’t been reporting on. On behalf of Betsy DeVos and the Department of Education, Trump’s legal team has petitioned the court to make America safer, starting with our children. In a 5-3 decision that wasn’t a difficult interpretation of the constitution, the high court ruled that public schools in this country will NOT teach the tenets of Islam or Sharia law. In reality, the high court has not considered the matter of Sharia law, a set of Islamic religious principles that various scholars and governments interpret differently. Sharia — or the fear of…

Rosie O'Donnell Breaks Her Silence on Donald Trump: "I Seriously Worry Whether I Will Be Able to Live Through His Presidency"

Image
As someone who's always been outspoken and especially so about her politics, it’s been an unexpectedly quiet year for Rosie O’Donnell. Donald Trump has publicly feuded with and bullied O’Donnell since December 2006, when she called him a “snake oil salesman” during a segment on The View, on which she had a brief run as co-host. For years, Trump called O’Donnell a “loser” and other epithets, bringing up O’Donnell’s appearance as fodder in the primary debates during the 2016 presidential campaign. For her part, O’Donnell has publicly criticized Trump and his politics for over a decade, responding in protest on Twitter and at the White House earlier this year.
In her first dramatic television series role, Rosie O’Donnell is taking on the topics of motherhood and mental illness, portraying “Tutu,” a working-class mother and grandmother living in Boston. Based on former Mr. Robot star Frankie Shaw’s Sundance short film of the same name, SMILF, which premieres on Showtime on November 5, …

It’s Official! Saints Were Warned And Didn’t Listen, Now Look What Lawmaker Is Taking From Them All

Image
The New Orleans Saints hopped on the protesting bandwagon this past weekend, to prove a point to the president that they will kneel if they want to. Like all other teams and players who sat out for the National Anthem this weekend, the message seemed to be more about disrespecting Donald Trump than it was about the “cause” that Colin Kaepernick started last season. Although they were warned, the team didn’t listen and are feeling the full wrath of who really has the power with what a Louisiana lawmaker just did to them.

The NFL is no longer America’s sport or favorite pastime, it’s been hijacked by racists who are using the public platform to spread divisive propaganda. It’s gotten so out of hand, that the President of the United States has had to address the anti-American players personally and tell them to stop. This only fueled their fire and sparked a league-wide protest that consumed every game over the weekend.

The Saints were among the teams who decided that after Trump’s comment…

Trump gushes for ‘King of China’ Xi Jinping..

Image
Donald Trump has heaped fawning praise on Xi Jinping, sending congratulations for his “extraordinary elevation” after the Chinese president was given exalted status by the Communist party this week.

Trump will arrive in Beijing on 8 November for a three-day visit and it is pretty obvious he is seeking to curry favour with Xi – most of all, the US president needs his help in dealing with North Korea. Trump continued his charm offensive in an interview with Fox Business Network: “Some people might call him the King of China,” he said of Xi.

Experts say Trump’s words are unlikely to ingratiate him with the Chinese leadership. “He’s a two-faced man … Beijing might be happy but they know very well in their hearts [what Trump is like],” said Shi Yinhong, a Renmin University international relations expert. Trump, though, says we’ve got him all wrong:



here is further scrutiny, meanwhile, of team Trump’s election tactics. His campaign’s data-mining contractor Cambridge Analytica tried to get its …

U.S. to seek 'good faith' agreements with China: Commerce Secretary.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump will seek “tangible” agreements on trade with China when he visits the country next month, but results on key issues such as market access may take longer, U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said on Wednesday.

The United States is seeking “immediate” results, like the deals American companies GE (GE.N) and Boeing Co (BA.N) struck in Saudi Arabia in May, as “a sign of good faith,” Ross said.

But, speaking at the Paley International Council Summit in New York, he acknowledged that market access, intellectual property rights and tariffs are more complex and will take a longer time to negotiate.

Trump administration efforts on trade continue on multiple fronts, with U.S. negotiators grappling with Canada and Mexico on updating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

World War 3: US fires ominous warning to North Korea

World War 3: US fires ominous warning to North Korea – 'We're ready to fight TONIGHT' DONALD Trump’s military “will continue” to back its South Korean allies and maintain a strong stance against Kim Jong-un’s nuclear-armed north, Washington has vowed.

In a show of strength against Kim’s regime, US and South Korean commanders met onboard the flagship of the US Seventh Fleet today to warn the despot they are ready to “fight tonight”.

The warning comes during an “unprecedentedly grave security situation” on the Korean Peninsula as the allies wrap up five days live-fire drills at sea - exercises unpredictable Kim has labelled a “rehearsal for war”.

North Korea has continued to provoke the West by testing nuclear weapons as well as long-range ballistic missiles, raising fears of World War 3 breaking out in the region. 

And today, Senator Bob Corker warned the President was "taking the US on a path to combat"with his approach to the rogue state.

Marking a new chapter in education philanthropy, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will step back from its traditional education reform agenda to instead invest close to $1.7 billion over the next five years on new initiatives that include a focus on building networks of schools.
"Education is, without a doubt, one of the most challenging areas we invest in as a foundation," Bill Gates is expected to say Thursday during a speech at the Council of the Great City Schools' annual conference in Cleveland, according to pr…
