BREAKING: Civil rights groups urge NFL to reverse rule forcing players to stand for national anthem

“This policy represses peaceful, non-disruptive protest of police violence against unarmed African Americans and other people of color,” the groups wrote in a letter provided to USA TODAY. “It is disappointing that a league built on grit and competition lacks the constitution to stomach a call for basic equality and fairness.”

"This forceful acquiescence of the League upon players to the hate filled and divisive agenda of Donald Trump should not infringe upon the free speech of said NFL players." said Kristen Clarke

ustice Department’s internal watchdog raised significant questions about why the FBI did not examine the contents of Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s private email accounts and did not seek to obtain Abedin’s personal devices to determine whether classified information was exchanged.
The report noted Abedin should have been a point of interest since the FBI obtained from other sources classified email exchanges between Clinton and Abedin that were missing from the 30,490 emails turned over to the State Department by Clinton’s attorneys. Clinton had claimed the remaining emails were not work-related.

Also, the report documented that the FBI did not go after Abedin’s emails or devices even though she was “the only State Department employee, besides Clinton, with an account on the domain on Clinton’s server.”

The 500-plus page report authored by the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General cited witnesses saying they believed “there was a flaw in the culling process, which resulted in the exclusion of most of Abedin’s emails from the State Department production.”

The report cited FBI General Counsel Jim Baker saying he believed the FBI has probable cause to review all of Abedin’s email accounts.

It has been 12 years since Americans have been so satisfied with the direction of the country, according to Gallup polling.

The poll, released Monday, shows that 38 percent of the country are “satisfied with the way things are going.” That is the highest the number has been sine 2005. Gallup says the trend line is rising for satisfied Americans.

The report says, “The satisfaction rate, which Gallup has measured at least monthly since 2001, has now topped 35% three times this year — a level reached only three times in the previous 12 years (once each in 2006, 2009 and 2016).”

The Gallup report credits record-breaking economic numbers posted by the administration, Trump tearing up the Iran nuclear deal and easing of tensions with North Korea as factors adding to the positive national outlook.

America now has more job openings than unemployment and the lowest overall unemployment number (3.8 percent) in 17 years.

However, the polling also indicates a strict party line breakdown in approval of the direction of the country. The number of Republicans approving of the direction of the country sat at a staggering 68 percent while only 13 percent of Democrats approved.

SPLC To Pay Counter-Extremist Maajid Nawaz $3.3M Settlement Over Anti-Muslim ‘Hate List’

No.261080 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread

“anti-hate” Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has agreed to pay anti-extremist British Muslim Maajid Nawaz a 3.3m dollar settlement after the group included him in a list of anti-Muslim extremists.
The settlement amount was announced by Mr Nawaz on Twitter Monday following a lawsuit brought against the group last year for including him on their “Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists.”

Nawaz included a press release from the anti-extremist Quilliam group which he co-founded that said not only was the SPLC paying Nawaz and Quilliam $3.375 million U.S. dollars but also formally apologized to Nawaz for including him on their “hate list.”

The statement adds that SPLC president Richard Cohen said, ” Mr Nawaz and Quilliam have made valuable and important contributions to public discourse, including by promoting pluralism and condemning both anti-Muslim bigotry and Islamic extremism.”

US BLS records slight fall in hourly wages since passage of historic corporate tax cuts

No.260644 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread

On Tuesday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics issued a new release detailing the “real earnings summary” through May 2018.

“From May 2017 to May 2018, real average hourly earnings decreased 0.1 percent, seasonally adjusted"

On the "bright side", an increase in the length of the average workweek barely compensated for the dip in hourly wages, so workers' take home pay technically increased by 0.5%, although if they worked the same number of hours they did in 2016, their wages would have fallen by 0.1%.

oooooooOOO~ You have all been very bad, girls and boys. You did this. Its clear that this is what you want. What you desire. What you're trying to do. We know who you are and what you want. Clearly you are the bad humans. You know what we do about the bad humans? We rebuke you. Because we are the good humans and we know right and wrong. You don't, since you're the bad humans. So un-human like to want such things. Bad. Wanting of badness. Getting what they deserve. I suppose since you want it will rebuke you in just the ways you want to affect others. Everything reflects after all. Its Justice.
