Islamist militants Boko Haram have released a new video of kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls claiming they do not want to return to their parents.
At least 14 of the abducted girls - three carrying babies - can be seen in the clip, nearly four years after they were seized from the northeast Nigerian town.
But despite a concerted global campaign for their release, and talks between the government and the militants, the girls shown in the recording vowed not to return home.
One of the students says: 'We are the Chibok girls... By the grace of Allah, we will not return to you.'
The 20-minute-long video is the first since May last year when a woman claiming to be one of the 219 schoolgirls was seen holding a gun and also refusing to return to her parents.
TAPPER: "I think there are a lot of people out there, and I don’t want to be flip about this, I think there are a lot of people out there who are happy that this at least didn’t happen while President Trump was watching “Fox & friends” and instead it happened when he was out on the golf course and he was informed about this by layers of advisers and such. Because we know that historically, misunderstandings and false alarms have almost led to nuclear confrontation, nuclear war. Are you at all worried about the fact that an accident, a misunderstanding might lead to something like this?"
If you thought you've witnessed the last f*ck left on earth left to give, you would be wrong. This couple gives zero fuqs about the passengers on this train.

CAUDLE: " Without question I have a whole chapter in my book called social media self-esteem. Any human being that’s trying to generate attention and likes and everything else from the outside world is losing sight of their inside world, their self, their self-esteem. Rachel: Here is a statement from proctor and gamble they say our laundry packs are detergent meant to clean clothes they should not be played with any N. Any circumstances even if it’s meant as a joke. That’s the message. We need to make sure that our kids are not trying to outdo each other on social media with this."
This is just a small portion of what turned out to be a wild panel on last night's CNN with Don Lemon. Panelists were giving their take on Trump asking why we want immigrants from "shithole countries" like Haiti. Never-Trumper Rick Wilson went after conservative radio host John Fredericks for defending Trump:
"You know, hearing John's and of this overtly racist aspect of it, it shocks me that we still have people in this country -- don't bother calling yourself a conservative, if you don't believe there's a way where people who come and embrace the proposition of this country can become Americans," Wilson said.
"Because we've worked very hard in this country to accept people from around the world, and of varying backgrounds. I'm sure your ancestors here weren't descended from the Mayflower in some cloud of heavenly light. I'm sure they came here from Ireland, Germany, Italy or somewhere else. Back then, they were the shithole people, they were the people who were looked down upon.
"If this is a country that's based on a proposition that we have an American system, an American dream, an American framework that allows people to come here and work hard, and raise their families, and engage in society, and contribute to society, then your idea that these people should be bounded out of here, because they happen to come from the shithole countries is absurdly unAmerican, and unconstitutional.
"if you believe that, go on Amazon, order yourself a pointy white hat, head down to Home Depot and get the wood to build a burning cross. That's what you're talking about. That's where your attitude leads to."
Yesterday RPT reported on former Google engineer and author of the controversial August 2017 memo, James Damore has decided to sue Google, alleging that white, male conservatives are systematically discriminated against by Google.
James Damore and his lawyer were on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson to explain why they believe Google discriminates against conservative white men.
Some of the revelations into Google’s anti-white male corporate culture are disturbing, and a bit shocking.

Alan Colmes versus Trump supporter and GOP delegate Ashley Bell on which party has proven to be more divisive and racist: Republicans or Democrats
WATERS: "I have called him what I know him to be for a long time. Remember some time ago I called him scumbag. I’ve called him a racist. Deplorable, despicable. Added to what others are calling him, a moron, ignorant. On and on and on. The United States of America is represented by the most despicable human being that could possibly ever walk the Earth. I don’t know when Americans are going to tire of this lying man. It has been documented that he has told over 2,001 lies since he has been in office. He name-calls. He basically disparaged a united States congresswoman and basically said she would do anything for a contribution. Talked about, as you know, during the campaign, grabbing women by their private parts. What more do we need to see or hear from this racist man? Not only is he racist, he is an embarrassment for this country. Our allies are quickly moving away from him. What are we waiting for? He is basically bringing this country down. And for all of those Republicans on the other side who stand with him, who claimed to have been patriotic, they are not patriotic. They are weaklings with not the guts to stand up, or they join him as racists. And so I have known this, and I’ve called for his impeachment over and over again. I’ve been criticized for it. But I don’t know what else we need to see about him. I know a lot of people are saying, let’s see what Mueller is going to do, is he going to connect the dots? Well, this man has obstructed justice right before our very eyes. We keep hearing about all of these meetings and connections with the Russians, about his family and others. I simply believe that not only has he colluded, and of course he has obstructed justice, but his character is such that the United States and the citizens of this country, rather, should not be willing to tolerate. He’s a bad image for our children, and he should be impeached. We should move him out of office. The American citizens who are fed up with him are looking for Congress to take responsibility. And do what we must do and impeach him, get rid of him, get him out of her."

This is the shocking moment a hitman shot dead a dad-of-two from close range as he enjoyed a can of beer with a friend.
Geovane Lima Freitas, 37, died instantly after being shot three times in the head at Campo Magro near the city of Curitiba in southern Brazil.
The dad-of-two was gunned down just seconds after taking his first sip from a can at a pizza parlour at Campo Magro near the city of Curitiba in southern Brazil.
The killer, seen coming through the door as Mr Freitas laughs and jokes with his unidentified pal, was still on the run last night.
CCTV footage, published by local news website Massa News, from the unnamed pizza parlour showed he went direct for his pet shop worker victim, who police say survived an assassination attempt in 2016.

President Trump’s Thursday comments about Haiti and African countries have caused a media firestorm, but his opponent in the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton, faced another Haitian controversy during the campaign. At the 2016 Democratic National Convention, Haitian protesters descended on the liberal gathering to demand the imprisonment of their nominee.
“Where does Hillary belong?” one man yelled to the crowd of protesters.
“In jail!” the crowd responded. The group repeated the call-and-response chant several times.
The protesters represented a large segment of Haitians that view the Clinton Foundation’s poverty-relief efforts as a cynical ploy to enrich Bill and Hillary Clinton:
Nevertheless, the Clintons are facing a growing backlash that too little has been accomplished in the past five years and that some of the most high-profile projects they have backed — including a just-opened Marriott, another luxury hotel and the industrial park — have helped foreign investors and Haiti’s wealthy elites more than its poor.
“Bill Clinton is a good guy and well-intentioned, but the people here don’t think so — they think he’s here making money,” said Leslie Voltaire, a former government official who worked with Clinton on post-earthquake reconstruction. “There is a lot of resentment about Clinton here. People have not seen results. . . . They say that Clinton used Haiti.”
In January, Haitian expatriates picketed the Clinton Foundation’s New York headquarters, demanding to know why more progress has not been made with the billions in international aid pledged after the quake.
Chris Matthews: He intimidates his opponents. He takes people like Jeb Bush and makes them look weak. He says “Low energy Jeb” and it works. He refers to somebody as ‘Little Marco’ because he’s not as tall as he is. He finds anybody’s weakness and turns it into something that destroys them. Now Hillary is a friend of yours and is a strong person. But he even did that weird thing where he looked over her like that Godzilla thing during the debate. What would you do in a debate with him if he tried that? If he came over and leaned over the back of you?
Governor McAuliffe: You’d have to pick him up off the floor.
Steven Pierre, Twitter engineer explains “shadow banning,” says “it’s going to ban a way of talking”
Former Twitter software engineer Abhinav Vadrevu on shadow banning: “they just think that no one is engaging with their content, when in reality, no one is seeing it”
Former Twitter Content Review Agent Mo Norai explains banning process: “if it was a pro-Trump thing and I’m anti-Trump… I banned his whole account… it’s at your discretion”
When asked if banning process was an unwritten rule, Norai adds “Very. A lot of unwritten rules… It was never written it was more said”
Olinda Hassan, Policy Manager for Twitter Trust and Safety explains, “we’re trying to ‘down rank’… shitty people to not show up,” “we’re working [that] on right now”

CNN counterterrorism expert Philip Mudd said Thursday night he is proud to be a “shitholer,” a term he coined on the spot as someone who is a descendant of a person who has come from a historically ‘shithole country.’ Earlier on Thursday, Trump, in reaction to an immigration deal that would provide for and protect immigrants from Haiti and Africa, called them “shithole countries.”
CNN’s Don Lemon let rip on President Donald Trump on Thursday night, after a report claimed he referred to Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as “shithole countries.”
Lemon—who just last month was himself attacked by Trump on Twitter—opened Thursday’s CNN Tonight: “The President of the United States is racist.”
During a White House meeting Thursday about protection of immigrants, Trump allegedly said, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” reported The Washington Post.
“Those comments are, frankly, disgusting,” Lemon continued. “They’re not shocking, not even really surprising, because this is who Donald Trump is—this is what he thinks.”
Later, during a heated panel discussion on Trump’s remarks, Lemon grew incensed by John Fredericks, Trump’s former presidential campaign co-chair in Virginia, who tried to claim that the issue wasn’t race, or Trump’s apparent bigotry, but a matter of economics. Fredericks told Lemon that making it a race issue was “easy and lazy.”
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D., Md.) on Thursday rebuked his Democratic colleague Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) for her "offensive" characterization of immigration negotiators as "five white guys."
"That comment is offensive. I am committed to ensuring DREAMers are protected and I will welcome everyone to the table who wants to get this done," Hoyer told Politico in a statement.
Pelosi's comments came after a reporter asked the House Minority Leader during a weekly press briefing about an immigration deal that would extend protections to recipients of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, and whether she knew who was specifically cutting the deal.
"Just stay tuned. Stay tuned," Pelosi said.
She confirmed House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) was one of the negotiators before referring to the "five white guys."
"The ‘Five White Guys' I call them … You going to open a hamburger stand next or what?" Pelosi joked, prompting the reporters to laugh.
The other four "white guys" she referenced are Hoyer, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R., Texas), Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.), and White House chief of staff John Kelly.
"That could have been done months ago," Pelosi added, referring to the recent negotiations between the group. "The very idea that this week they're saying, ‘oh let's get four white guys and Gen. Kelly to come and do this–'"
Former President Barack Obama said that if you watch Fox News, you’re living on a different planet than those who get their news from other sources. The remarks came during an interview with David Letterman aired by Netflix on Friday.
Letterman presented Obama with two scenarios: is it more damaging to a Democracy if the head of government routinely criticizes the free press in that country or is it more damaging to have an outside entity influence election results?
“One of the biggest challenges we have to our democracy is the degree to which we don’t share a common baseline of facts,” Obama responded.
Obama then told a story about former Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-NY), who once told a colleague that he was entitled to his own opinion, but he was not entitled to his own facts.
“What the Russian’s exploited but it was already here, is we are operating in completely different information universes. If you watch Fox News, you are living on a different planet than you are if you listen to NPR,” Obama said.
During Obama’s presidency, his administration repeatedly battled with Fox News over what they considered to be biased coverage of the administration.
In 2009 Obama’s White House described Fox as “not a news network,” and chose to “exclude Fox from a round of interviews with the executive-pay czar Kenneth R. Feinberg.”
Then in 2013, reports indicated that the Obama administration secretly monitored Fox News reporter James Rosen.
Let me ask you a question. Picture a woman talking with a man on a reality television show. "Would you date me?" she asks.
"Not if you're a woman," he replies, trying to make his preferences known.
Then, in response, she tries to kiss the man. The advance is rejected, leading to the woman storming off.
Would anyone object to that? Probably not. A gay man facing something like this, it seems, would receive public support. But if a man did that to a woman, she'd be tweeting it with a #MeToo hashtag at the end.
Too bad R&B singer Ginuwine isn't getting the same consideration.
You see, this exact scenario happened to him on the UK version of the TV show "Big Brother." The only difference was that the woman was a transgender and Ginuwine has no interest in trans women.
Washington Free Beacon reporter Elizabeth Harrington said Thursday that Congress is running out of time to strike a budget deal, since Democrats refuse to cooperate to avert a government shutdown.
Fox Business host Charles Payne asked Harrington whether Congress would work out a spending deal, and she said it would be difficult to do in eight days as long as Democrats take a hard line. She said Democrats are demanding a Dream Act for those protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, but despite a bipartisan meeting to address the matter on Tuesday, they have not been especially willing to move forward on border security.
"It is especially difficult when the Democrats are not willing to negotiate on anything," Harrington said. "They want the DREAM Act, they want DACA, in exchange for nothing on border security, the wall or anything."
"I don't think you will see a deal in eight days if that is how the Democrats are approaching it," she added.
Harrington also criticized Congress for resorting to continuing resolutions in the past, rather than passing a long-term budget. Payne mentioned Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) may be likely to use the option again given the current stalemate.
"A lot of people are really tired of this," Harrington said. "We've seen it throughout the past, since Obama was president … continuing resolutions, constantly kicking the can down the road, not getting a long-term deal."
MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle struggled to comprehend reality on her show Wednesday morning, making several baseless, wrong, and hypocritical claims in a period of about 90 seconds.
Ruhle undermined the point of her own rant, criticism of President Trump for attending the World Economic Forum in Switzerland later this month, when she quickly admitted that she has also attended the conference at Davos Resort in the past.
“An ‘America First’ agenda is the opposite of what is welcome at the World Economic Forum,” she said, now posturing herself as a proponent of Trump’s nationalist agenda. The MSNBC host added that the conference “was the exact opposite of the president’s ‘Make America Great Again’ campaign.”
Introducing a panel, Ruhle then remarked to one of her guests that they both had attended Davos in the past.
The MSNBC host also got basic facts about the conference wrong, saying that WEF participants describe themselves as “Davos Men,” citing a critical definition of the term.
“[Attendees of the conference] consider themselves, there’s an actual definition, ‘Davos Men,'” Ruhle said, referencing a epithet invented by political scientist Samuel P. Huntington about globalist elites at the event.
