Jennifer Holliday stopped by this week's THE VIEW on ABC and opened up about why she accepted the invitation to perform at Trump's inauguration and the decision to ultimately back out. 'I'm an artist and I love America,' she said on her initial choice to take part. The singer didn't expect all the backlash and instant bullying that followed. She canceled her performance calling it a 'lapse in judgement.'
This video shows how mass immigration changed Sweden from one of the safest countries on earth to one of the most violent countries. (Sweden now has the second highest number of rapes in the whole world). If you want to save your nation, and you're a European, contact your local politicians and express your concerns, threaten to vote them out. Or just vote them out if they're radical leftist.
A man was shot Friday night on the University of Washington campus during a protest for a controversial speaker, and the suspected shooter turned himself in claiming self defense, police said.
A large crowd packed the Red Square area of campus Friday night protesting a speech by controversial Brietbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos. Police were blocking the entrance to Kane Hall, and investigators said bricks and paint were thrown at officers.
Medics received the shooting report at 8:26 p.m., after Yiannopoulos' speech began in Kane Hall, but while a large crowd of protesters remained outside.
UW students were alerted to the suspected shooters arrest early Saturday morning. He was being questioned early Saturday morning by UW police, who are handling the investigation.
The shooting victim is 34 and suffered a life-threatening gunshot wound to the abdomen, Seattle police said. He was in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center, and was previously identified by authorities as a 25-year-old.
On Saturday morning, hospital officials said the victim was in critical but stable condition. He was rushed to Harborview's Emergency Department and underwent surgery Friday night.
At the University of Washington's Odegaard Library a fed up Asian students was attempting to silence a group of SJWs protesting Trump in the school library. Listen to the comments the SJWs who are preaching tolerance and acceptance have to say about the Asian kid. Hypocrites much?
As hundreds of thousands of Americans filled the streets of the nation's capital for the Women's March on Washington, actress Ashley Judd read a poem that compared Donald Trump to Hitler.
Judd was reciting a poem written by a 19-year-old from Tennessee when she read the line: 'I feel Hitler in these streets, a mustache traded for a toupee.'
The poem was a celebration of 'nasty women', as Trump so famously called Hillary Clinton during a debate before the presidential election.
'I am a nasty women,' Judd began as she read the poem. 'I'm not as nasty as a man who looks like he bathes in Cheeto dust.'
'I'm not as nasty as your own daughter being your favorite sex symbol, your wet dreams infused with your own genes,' she read later, clearly referencing Ivanka.
Fairbanks decided to attend President Trump’s Inauguration on Friday in Washington D.C. and she was attacked by protesters at the event. Protesters spat at her, chanted “fuck you” at her, called her names, and elbowed her friend… because she supported Trump.
Violent social justice warriors pelted a disabled woman in the face with paintballs outside the Milo Yiannopolous speech at the University of Washington on Saturday night.
Cowards at the Anti-Trump protests are filmed jumping a single Trump supporter who was simply trying to put out the fires these savages set. Watch as a group of them come in and attack the man, simply because one on one these guys are all weak. Look at their stature and build. Wimps.
In case you missed it, yesterday at the Inauguration these dip-shits were walking around with chains they put on themselves while claiming they're still fighting for freedom. Apparently they've missed the fact slavery ended closing on 200yrs ago, and those slaves didn't put their own chains on, freely.
She recently reunited with Will & Grace co-star Eric McCormack to encourage young people to vote.
And Debra Messing continued to do her bit to raise political awareness as she campaigned for Hillary Clinton with former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell at 'The Knock' restaurant in Philadelphia on Saturday.
The actress, 48, looked in good spirits as she donned a bold slogan T-shirt with the caption 'Vaginas against Trump'.
Teaming the slogan T-shirt with black trousers, a leather jacket and black studded shoes, she ensured all eyes were drawn to the message on her top.
And wearing her glossy brunette hair in loose curls, the actress looked in good spirits as she headed through the streets with a suited and booted Ed Rendell.
Having perfected the art of public speaking, Debra used a microphone to get her message across.
CNN Once again went full race baiting mode while completely ignoring other facts that even the image they showed exposed. Listen to this race baiting Latino host once again claim Donald Trump is racist, simply because he hasn't met whatever quota this man has in his head. Which is in itself racist, he wants Trump to hire people simply because of their color. CNN, fake news.
In anticipation of President Obama’s farewell address Tuesday night, America Rising PAC released a new video titled “Revisionist History” that highlights a few of the president’s failures during his time in office.
The video begins with a clip of Obama’s infamous “if you like your plan you can keep your plan” statement from 2010, when he promised Americans that they could keep their health insurance plans if the Affordable Care Act passes. While the president said families would not lose their health care plans with Obamacare enshrined as law, millions of American have seen their health insurance plans canceled because of the Affordable Care Act. PolitiFact rated Obama’s promise the “lie of the year” for 2013, after the effects of the landmark law could be seen.
The America Rising video later plays a clip of Obama from early 2014 calling the Islamic State the “JV team.” Months later, the terrorist group took over large swaths of territory in Iraq to add to its strongholds in eastern Syria. The brutality of ISIS has since come to horrify much of the world, and the group has been responsible for thousands of deaths around the world.
On another foreign policy topic, the video castigates Obama for his handling of the chaos in Libya from the Arab Spring. Obama ordered for a military intervention in 2011 to address the growing instability in the country that led to the removal of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi from power. The U.S. did not have a clear plan for after Gaddafi was deposed and killed, and the country devolved into a state of chaos in which various jihadist groups were allowed to thrive.
The video then cuts to an interview from 2016 in which Obama declares that his biggest failure in office was not adequately planning for a response after his initial Libyan intervention.
America Rising also hits Obama for failing to enforce the declared “red line” against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad using chemical weapons on his own people. In August 2012, Obama said that if the Syrian government used such weapons against civilians, he would respond forcefully, indicating that would include military action. When it became apparent in 2013 that Assad used chemical weapons, Obama instead backed away from his declaration and accepted a deal brokered by Russia to remove some of the weapons stockpile. The Syrian regime has continued to use chemical weapons on civilians since then.
The two-minute video released by America Rising, a Republican opposition research group, also includes clips of Obama’s legacy regarding the Iran nuclear deal and the American economy.
As the bulk of the country was watching the inauguration hoping Donald Trump does a good job and brings back more jobs to the United States as promised, as well is healing racial divisions. Some outside of the inauguration blocked tens of thousands of Americans from attending while their friends were busy smashing storefronts along the parade route. Here is some of that violence.

The Way I Heard It
Sometimes, when the country feels divided and friends and family are at each other's throats, the only sensible thing to do is drink a beer and tell a story. Normally, I wait a few months before posting recent podcasts on Facebook, but all things considered...the time seems right for this one.
Obamacare has cost roughly 300,000 small business jobs due to higher health care costs, according to a new report.
The American Action Forum, a center-right policy institute, released findings Wednesday that rising premiums and regulations under the Affordable Care Act have had “dire” consequences for the labor market.
The report found the law has cost $19 billion in lost wages per year and forced 10,000 small businesses establishments to close their doors. The study covered employers with 20 to 99 employees.
“Research from the American Action Forum (AAF) finds regulations from the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are driving up health care premiums and are costing small business employees at least $19 billion in lost wages annually,” the report said. “These figures varied by state, but in 2015 the ACA cost year-round workers $2,095, $2,134, and $2,260 in Ohio, New York, and North Dakota, respectively.”
“Premium increases, a prospect regulators predicted when issuing the first ACA regulations, also significantly diminished the number of business establishments and jobs nationwide,” the report said. “Across the country, small businesses (20-99 workers) lost 295,030 jobs, 10,130 business establishments, and $4.7 billion in total wage earnings. Florida lost 17,950 jobs; Ohio lost 19,000; Pennsylvania lost 15,680; and Texas lost 28,010 jobs due to higher sensitivity to rising health care premiums and the ACA.”
Ben Gitis and Sam Batkins, the authors of the report, used data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics for their findings.
Leftist protesters continue to engage in riot like tactics as they show just how violent they plan on becoming after Donald Trump was inaugurated president and they were helpless to stop it, even after attempting to shut down the parade in which they also failed.
While speaking to reporters on the street in Washington, D.C. today during the inauguration ceremonies, alt-right leader Richard Spencer was punched in the face by a hooded man.
Explaining that the pin on his lapel was Pepe the Frog and going into what it symbolizes, a man came flying in with a hard right cross to Spencer’s cheek, much to the shock of Spencer and those surrounding him.
Instead of retaliating, Spencer just began walking down the street, obviously shaken.
There were a number of protests that took place last night and today during the inauguration ceremonies. At the ‘DeploraBall’ yesterday evening, attended by many prominent alt-right members, there was a large demonstration outside the event.
Donald Trump has been sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.
After formally taking office, Trump said: "Together we will determine the course of America and the world for many, many years to come."
Mr Trump added that January 20 would be remembered as "the day the people became the rulers of this nation again".
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., drew boos, scorn and ridicule on Friday for delivering what many considered a lengthy speech that delayed President-elect Trump's swearing in.
A CHILD is among three people killed, 20 are hurt including young children and shots were fired during a wild police chase through Melbourne’s Bourke St Mall.
Police say the incident is not connected to terrorism and no one else is being sought.
PICTURE SPECIAL: Deadly chaos unfolds in Melbourne
A Victoria Police spokesman confirmed one of those killed was a young child.
Three other patients are battling for life in intensive care.
Police shot the man before arresting him after he ploughed into pedestrians in Bourke St Mall.
An eyewitness was recorded on video saying the driver of the car involved in the BourkeSt ram raid in the Melbourne CBD screamed "Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar."
Police also said it was a "deliberate" act as did a number of witnesses at the scene. Reporters also originally noted that the driver was of Middle Eastern appearance based on eyewitness accounts. Police now say this had nothing to do with terrorism. Several news outlets have also retracted the fact that the driver was Middle Eastern.
Watch Hillary Clinton's face as she catches Bill Clinton staring right at Ivanka and Melania Trump during the inauguration ceremony. Clearly Bill has lost whatever little respect he had left for Hillary after she lost the presidential campaign to Trump. You can see that he can even see her out the corner of his eye but doesn't even care to stop staring.
The streets of Washington DC look like a war zone right now due to liberal protesters smashing storefronts and destroying people's property in order to stop the presidential parade from happening. Moments like this show exactly why Donald Trump won this election.
Police fired tear gas on the streets of Washington, D.C., and arrested at least 95 people as protesters angry over the inauguration of President Donald Trump smashed windows of businesses, upended trash cans and scuffled with cops.
"Donald Trump is a racist!" shouted one woman nearby Trump as he was sworn in as president on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. She was quickly led away by authorities.
One of the Donald Trump's supporters was seen charging head first into a group of leftist anti-Trump protesters at a security screening checkpoint in Washington DC, Friday, as hundreds demonstrated against the president-elect's inauguration.
The Nigerian military said on Thursday it is deploying troops to Gambia as part of a West African coalition force, aiming to uphold the result of December's presidential elections.
In this video, the Nigerian Air Force carries out the deployment to Senegal in preparation.
"The Nigerian military will deploy its assets as part of (a) standby force to protect the people of the Gambia and maintain sub regional peace and security," the armed forces said in a statement.
Adama Barrow was sworn in as Gambia's president at its embassy in neighboring Senegal on Thursday, former president Yahya Jammeh, has refused to step down despite his December election loss.
President Yahya Jammeh once predicted that his rule could last a billion years.
Now, the fate of his nation is hanging on one more anxiety-filled day.
After acknowledging defeat in an election last month, Mr. Jammeh abruptly changed his mind, refusing to step aside for the inauguration of the new president scheduled for Thursday and threatening to drag the nation into a bloody standoff.
Mr. Jammeh, who has long been criticized for human rights abuses and grandiose claims like being able to cure AIDS with little more than prayer and a banana, has insisted on a do-over election. He declared a state of emergency on Tuesday, warning the nation not to engage in any “acts of disobedience.”
West African nations are preparing to enter the country and force Mr. Jammeh’s ouster if he does not leave. In response, Mr. Jammeh has threatened that his own military is prepared to defend Gambia’s sovereignty.
Senior officials in his government have resigned in protest or left the country. At least 26,000 Gambians have fled to across the border into Senegal, the United Nations says. Hundreds of tourists on beach vacations were also being evacuated.
Now, his opponent in the election, Adama Barrow, who has retreated to Senegal but has the overwhelming support of Gambians and international leaders, is forging ahead with plans for an inauguration ceremony on Thursday, throwing continental Africa’s smallest nation into uncertainty.
“What we are simply and rightfully asking for is to return to the polls and allow Gambians to elect who they want to be their president,” Mr. Jammeh told the nation, rejecting the previous vote as riddled with irregularities.
Parliament added to the confusion on Wednesday, voting to extend Mr. Jammeh’s term for three months, state television reported, although it was not clear whether the move was binding.
“Right now all we want is for Jammeh to go,” said Lamine Ceesay, a taxi driver. “Even if they inaugurate Barrow in Jamaica or America, he is already our president. We want change. That’s all”
A Pittsburgh-area mall that was foreclosed on after its owners failed to repay $143 million was auctioned off Wednesday for $100. The sprawling Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills mall has been in trouble ever since it opened its doors 11 years ago. After defaulting on that $143 million loan, the bankruptcy court put it up for auction. Wells Fargo Bank was owed the money from a 2006 loan and submitted the winning bid for the 1.1 million-square-foot mall. The bank was acting as trustee for MSCI 2007 HQ11, the trust that bought the mall in suburban Frazer Township. -- Paul Martino: Pittsburgh Mills mall auctioned off for a hundred bucks. Bid by Wells Fargo which is holding 149 Mill. Debt on mall.
Wells Fargo foreclosed last year on the mall, which opened in 2005. Pittsburgh Mills Limited Partnership defaulted on the loan. KDKA’s Paul Martino: “You’re protecting the interests of the bank, right?” Wells Fargo Attorney Nick Godfrey: “That’s correct, yeah. And the process here will play out. Like I said, I can’t comment further at this time.” -- It’s clear that Wells Fargo purchased the property to make sure someone else didn’t grab it at a ridiculous price. But it’s not clear what will happen to the mall now, and that’s got shoppers worried. “It’s a shame. It’s a nice location. It’s a modern mall. It’s nice. I just don’t understand why the customers don’t come here and shop,” said one shopper. That’s one of the big problems. The mall sits on more than a million square feet, but not many shoppers are coming.
The other problem is that mall shopping is declining everywhere due to the popularity of online shopping. It means the mall’s former Sears Superstore now sits empty. Many others across the country have closed, too. Macy’s stores are also closing, but so far the one at the Mills is staying. “It’s very sad. They never developed all the stuff they said was going to happen,” said another shopper. Plans for an indoor go kart track and a water park never materialized, and the mall is only about 55 percent occupied. Even so, shoppers who live in the area hope someone can save the place. “It’s just getting people to invest in the right things, in the right time. Hopefully, we can get people to come and help us out,” another shopper said.
But the numbers are not good. The mall was once valued at $190 million, but today its worth just $11 million and there’s that $143 million debt. Wells Fargo and the mall’s new owners haven’t commented on the purchase.
A transcript of Trump's first speech as president follows.
"Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans and people of the world, thank you.
We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people.
Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for many, many years to come. We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But we will get the job done.
Every four years we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power.
And we are grateful to President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition.
They have been magnificent.
Today's ceremony, however, has a very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people.
For too long, a small group in our nation's capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have bore the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered but the jobs left and the factories closed.
The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation's capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.
That all changes starting right here and right now, because this moment is your moment.
It belongs to you.
It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America.
This is your day.
This is your celebration.
And this, the United States of America, is your country.
What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.
January 20th, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.
The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. Everyone is listening to you now. You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen before.
At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families and good jobs for themselves.
These are just and reasonable demands of righteous people and a righteous public.
But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists.
Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities, rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation.
An education system flush with cash but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge.
And the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential. This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.
We are one nation, and their pain is our pain.
Their dreams are our dreams, and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home and one glorious destiny.
The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.
For many decades we've enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry, subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military.
We've defended other nations' borders while refusing to defend our own. And we've spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas while America's infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.
We've made other countries rich while the wealth, strength and confidence of our country has dissipated over the horizon.
One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores with not even a thought about the millions and millions of American workers that were left behind.
The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed all across the world. But that is the past, and now we are looking only to the future.
We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital and in every hall of power. From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.
From this day forward, it's going to be only America first, America first. Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our product, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs.
Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength. I will fight for you with every breath in my body, and I will never ever let you down.
America will start winning again, winning like never before.
We will bring back our jobs.
We will bring back our borders.
We will bring back our wealth, and we will bring back our dreams.
We will build new roads and highways and bridges and airports and tunnels and railways all across our wonderful nation.
We will get our people off of welfare and back to work, rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.
We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and hire American.
We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world, but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first.
We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example.
We will shine for everyone to follow.
We will re-enforce old alliances and form new ones and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the earth.
At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.
When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.
The Bible tells us how good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity. We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable. There should be no fear. We are protected and we will always be protected. We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement. And most importantly, we will be protected by God.
Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger. In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving. We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action, constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.
The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action.
Do not allow anyone to tell you that it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America. We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.
We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.
A new national pride will stir ourselves, lift our sights and heal our divisions. It's time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget, that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots.
We all enjoy the same glorious freedoms and we all salute the same great American flag.
And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty creator.
So to all Americans in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, from ocean to ocean, hear these words: You will never be ignored again. Your voice, your hopes and your dreams will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.
Together we will make America strong again, we will make America wealthy again, we will make America proud again, we will make America safe again.
And, yes, together we will make America great again.
God bless you.
And God bless America."
Notorious drug lord Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman was escorted to an airplane in Ciudad Juarez, Thursday, ahead of his extradition to the US where he faces prosecution on narcotics distribution among other charges. Alberto Elias, Mexico's Attorney General Deputy on International affairs, announced the extradition, stating "He was handed over in Juarez City, under full respect to the extradition treaty signed between the two countries and in accordance to international law," before adding "This way the Foreign Relations Secretariat declares it has fulfilled this extradition request made by the United States government."
