A homemade bomb exploded near Bogota's bullring on Sunday, injuring two dozen police officers and two civilians, Colombian authorities said. The explosive device, which shattered windows in nearby apartment buildings, appeared to have been left in a sewer outside a new youth hostel popular with foreign backpackers. It was detonated just a few hours before a scheduled bullfight as police in riot gear were gathering ahead of a demonstration by animal rights activists. Authorities did not give a motive for the blast and said they had no evidence it had anything to do with the resumption of bullfighting at the ring.

Recently, Elon Musk had the chance to share his thoughts on universal basic income (UBI) at the World Government Summit in Dubai. At the Summit, Musk had the opportunity to talk about the future, and the challenges the world will face in the next hundred years – including artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and the job displacement expected to come with it.
When asked about the challenges civilization is set to face in the near future, Musk began by noting the threat of artificial intelligences that surpass humanity.
He stated, “deep artificial intelligence, or artificial general intelligence, where you can have artificial intelligence that is much smarter than the smartest human on Earth, this is a dangerous situation.”
He continued by noting the importance of advancing our research into AI with caution: “I think we need to be very careful in how we adopt artificial intelligence and that we make sure that researchers don’t get carried away. Sometimes what will happen is a scientist will get so engrossed in their work that they don’t really realize the ramifications of what they’re doing.”
I am not sympathetic to the white voters who make over $50,000 a year and said that ‘We are going to vote for Trump.’ Those people I am not sympathetic to, and I do not believe that you have to open your heart to them. If you are a person of color in this room, if you are a woman in this room, you do not have to open your heart to them.
People are going to die because of what happened. And if we don’t start there, we cannot have a conversation. People’s lives are on the line now, and it’s time we get real about that.
Republican Sen. John McCain took a veiled swipe at President Donald Trump's attacks on the media, cautioning that suppressing the press "is how dictators get started."
McCain, who has broken with Trump on several issues, made the comments in an exclusive interview with NBC's "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd, after being asked about the president's condemnation of several media outlets as "fake news" and "an enemy of the American people."
"I hate the press. I hate you especially," McCain joked. "But the fact is we need you. We need a free press. We must have it. It's vital."
"If you want to preserve — I'm very serious now — if you want to preserve democracy as we know it, you have to have a free and many times adversarial press," McCain said. "And without it, I am afraid that we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time. That's how dictators get started."
Hundreds of protesters faced off with police in the French city of Rennes, Saturday, during a march against police brutality.
Intense police presence dominated the city's town centre, as surrounding roads were blocked by police forces.
Police blocked roads and threatened to use tear gas against protesters, with scuffles breaking out between officers and demonstrators.
The protest was part of a series of anti-police brutality rallies being held across France, with thousands in attendance. They were instigated by news that a French policeman was charged with the rape and abuse of a young black man, identified as 'Theo', during a routine ID check, on February 2.
Police reportedly sexually abused the victim with a police baton during an arrest in a Paris suburb.
Diamond and Silk: Let me just say this to the media. Let me just say this. We didn’t believe you in the primaries. We didn’t believe you in the general election. And, read my lips, we don’t believe you now!
Kayleigh McEnany was trying to be cordial with this libtard and he flat out snaps. Watch him attempt to flip literally everything she says into a personal attack. They say liberalism is a mental disorder, they also say liberals want to divide they nation, here's your proof.
For everyone calling this a peaceful march, it was not peaceful everywhere. These vegans who joined the protest were infringing upon others rights to do so in order to make it appear as if others were also joining their protest, they weren't, they were simply being held hostage by morons blocking roadways.
Watch a pissed off liberal go off on his fellow libtards for acting a fool and harassing women while ironically chanting for free speech and women's rights. You have to see this, absolutely hilarious to watch a liberal go off on his own for their pure absurdities spewed on a daily basis now.

Yes I want to use the U.S. judicial system—the immigration courts in particular-- to jam, to backlog it so perhaps President Trump will change his mind and stop this ridiculous policy-- this unpleasant and hostile policy-- of deporting people...” (Jorge Castañeda to Tucker Carlson, Fox News, 2/14/17.)
The “ridiculous policy” consists of President Trump’s executive orders to deport lawbreaking foreigners, mostly Mexicans.
In other words, this “unpleasant and hostile policy” consists of Trump’s fulfillment of his campaign promises and his pledge to uphold the U.S. Constitution when he was sworn in on Jan. 20.
The Mexican government itself has pledged $50 million in legal defense funds towards this jamming of U.S. courts as planned and promoted by Jorge Castañeda, who was introduced by Tucker Carlson as “Mexico’s former Foreign Minister, also a NYU professor and Board member of Human Rights Watch.”
Congresswoman Jackie Speier (CA-14) spoke on the House floor Wednesday morning, demanding that House Republicans break their silence and investigate and disclose all evidence related to the control Russian President Vladimir Putin has over President Donald Trump.

Both Merkel and US Vice President Mike Pence attend key security conference in Munich with Russia high on the agenda.
Merkel also stressed the need to preserve and strengthen multilateral structures such as the EU and NATO during her address [Thomas Kienzle/AFP]
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said Islam is not the source of "terrorism" and that cooperating with predominantly Muslim states in the fight against it is vital.
Merkel, who has been critical of US President Donald Trump's attempt to impose a temporary travel ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries, was speaking on Saturday at the Munich Security Conference, with US Vice President Mike Pence in the audience.
Merkel said Europe's ties with Russia remained challenging, but it was important to work with Russia in the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and similar groups.
She stressed the need to preserve and strengthen multilateral structures such as the EU, NATO and the UN during an address that came as concern grew about the Trump administration's approach to international affairs and fears that it may have little interest in working in multilateral forums.
Trump's criticism of NATO as "obsolete", his praise for Britain's decision to leave the EU as well as his softer approach towards Russia have unnerved allies.
"Acting together strengthens everyone," said Merkel. "We must see that the multilateral structures are in many places not efficient enough.
"I am firmly convinced that it is worth fighting for our common international multilateral structures, but we must improve them in many places." Pence reassures watchful allies
Pence, though, in his first overseas trip since being named vice president, said Trump would stand by NATO and no one should doubt his commitment after the sacrifices made to defend it.
"The president asked me to be here today to convey a message, a reassurance - the US strongly supports NATO and we will be unwavering in our commitment to this transatlantic alliance," Pence said. "Let no one doubt our commitment."
A 19-year-old man charged with first-degree murder in the death of an 11-year-old girl who was shot in the head was beaten at the courthouse by another alleged murderer.
Antwan C. Jones, who was charged with the shooting of Takiya Holmes, was sitting in Leighton Criminal Courthouse in Chicago on Wednesday.
Surveillance video appeared to show him taking a nap while awaiting a bond hearing, when another prisoner, Renard Williams, 24, suddenly ran over to him and began pummeling the suspect with his fists. Surveillance video captured the odd scene.
Jailers said they had no idea why Williams took it upon himself to beat Jones, as they know of no connection between the two or between Williams and Holmes.
However, the community in general was outraged by the shooting of the little girl, which happened when Williams allegedly opened fire on rival gang members, and helped police identify the suspect.
However, it’s not even known if Williams knew who the sleeping prisoner was.
‘We don’t know one way or the other,’ said said Cara Smith, chief policy officer for Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart, who runs the jail, according to DNAInfo.
President Donald Trump, speaking at what’s being called a “campaign event” at the Orlando-Melbourne International Airport in Florida Saturday, invited a supporter to come onstage and address the crowd of reportedly 9,000 people.
While the president was beginning to outline the ways in which he was supportive of police officers, he turned his attention to a gentleman who he said had been “all over television, saying the best things.”
He then instructed the man to join him onstage. As the man fought his way through the crowd, the Secret Service detail briefly detained him, but Trump told them to let him through telling them he wasn’t “worried” about the man.
The gentleman hugged the president and then briefly addressed the crowd:
“Mr. president — we the people…are the reason our president is standing in front of us today,” he said. “When Trump promised us all these things he was gonna do for us, I knew he was gonna do this for us.”
As the man left the stage, Trump told the crowd, “A star is born…I wouldn’t say the Secret Service was thrilled with that, but we know our people, right?”
The crowd chanted “USA! USA!” in response.
UPDATE: Milo also talked with Maher and his panelists, comedian Larry Wilmore, former GOP Congressman Jack Kingston, and former intel analyst Malcolm Nance of NBC during the Overtime segment.

“The problem is this, you have a lot of folks who are either career members of the intelligence community who are skeptical of the current situation or who were at one point political appointees who have burrowed themselves into the infrastructure who are now career intelligence officers,” he said.
Shaffer said it is evident that there are people who are embedded in the current administration that have retained loyalties to past administrations. This causes them to “[judge] for themselves what they should or should not do regarding intelligence.”
“The same mentality where you’ve seen people leaking is the same mentality you see people holding information,” he said.
CNN’s Don Lemon abruptly ended the last segment of his show Friday night after one commentator continued to refer to a story as “fake news.”
Lemon was moderating a discussion of President Donald Trump’s frequent trips away from the White House, and the costs to taxpayers they incur. Paris Dennard, a former staffer in the George W. Bush administration and now a political analyst and commentator, called the story “fake news”
“The President is not breaking any laws, and he’s not doing anything,” Dennard said.
Lemon stopped him. “Fake news is when you put out a story to intentionally deceive someone and you know that it is wrong.” He added: “This story that we’re doing right now is not to intentionally deceive anyone. We are simply talking about the cost to keep a President safe.”
“Please stop it with that stupid talking point, that it is a fake news story,” Lemon said. “If you don’t want to participate in the news stories on this network, then don’t come on and participate. But don’t call them fake because you don’t agree with them. Go on.”
“Don, this is a fake news story, in my opinion,” Dennard responded, “because the underlying assumption is that— ”
“Okay, Paris, thank you very much everyone,” Lemon interrupted, ending the show early. “Thanks everyone, thanks for watching. Have a great weekend. Goodnight, all.”

It was one of the most heartbreaking things you’ll ever see: a soldier’s casket, being removed from a plane after an American hero took his final trip home. And as it turns out, it wasn’t just his brothers in arms who were paying him respect.
According to KTRK-TV, a passenger named Lisa Williams’ reported that her flight into Raleigh-Durham Airport in North Carolina had been an uneventful one until it had landed. That’s when passengers were told they would need to wait so that someone could be let off of the plane.
It wasn’t just anyone who was being let off of the plane, though — it was the flag-draped casket of a fallen soldier. That’s when Williams started filming — and the cabin started sobbing.
A group of College Democrats thinks the pins will help spark conversations about race.
Students at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania are wearing white, puzzle-piece-shaped pins for a month to remind themselves of white privilege.
The project is being sponsored by the school’s chapter of College Democrats, which will continue to distribute the pins until the end of the semester and hopes to have at least 100 students committed to wearing them by February 17, according to an article in Lancaster Online.
“This project will encourage people to have conversations about race and how their inherent white privilege has a part in the systematic oppression of minorities — whether or not they purposefully participate in the system,” Aileen Ida, president of the Elizabethtown College Democrats, told Lancaster Online.
In an interview with the College Fix, Ida made sure to clarify that these pins are not just for white people, that students of other racial backgrounds are welcome to wear them as well.

Friday MSNBC played a clip of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) at the Munich Security Conference in Germany responding to the resignation of Michael Flynn as National Security Adviser by claiming it showed the administration of President Donald Trump is in “disarray.”
McCain said, “I think that the Flynn issue obviously is something that shows that in many respects this administration is in disarray and they’ve got a lot of work to do.”

Two men and a teenager in Florida are behind bars after they attacked a disabled Navy veteran who was trying to protect a turtle that they were torturing, according to police and the vet's family. Gary Blough said he came upon the group in Daytona Beach as they were taking the turtle and slamming it down as hard as they could on its shell. He asked them to leave the animal alone and then tried to help the turtle back into the water. "While I had my head turned, two of them started hitting me in the back of the head and punching me," Blough told Fox 35. "Next thing I know we’re in a scuffle and I’m fighting three of them at the same time defending myself." He said the group began to punch and kick him, leaving him with a severely swollen eye and a bump on the back of his head. After other people came to see the commotion, the suspects reportedly took off, but police later caught up with them nearby, charging all three with aggravated battery and animal cruelty.
