Hope Hicks Quits After Being Grilled by Investigators

Former lingerie Model, Hope Hicks is resigning as White House communications director, The New York Times reported. Hicks is a long-serving aide to President Donald Trump, from before his days as a candidate, and her resignation comes a day after testifying before the House Intelligence Committee over its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The report also quoted Trump as saying “Hope is outstanding and has done great work for the last three years.” Hicks said she had “no words” to express her gratitude to the president.

Hope Hicks has occasionally told fibs on behalf of her boss, but they only amounted to white lies, according to what little we’ve heard spill out after her closed-door testimony Tuesday with congressional investigators.

Hicks was interviewed for nine hours Tuesday by the panel investigating Russia interference in the 2016 election and contact between Trump’s campaign and Russia. One of Trump’s closest aides, Hicks was his spokeswoman during the 2016 presidential campaign and is now White House communications director.

The top Democrat on the intelligence panel, California Rep. Adam Schiff, said after the meeting was over that Hicks answered questions about her role in Trump’s campaign and answered some questions about the transition period between the election and the inauguration. But she would not answer any questions about events since Trump took the oath of office, similar to some other White House officials who have spoken to the committee. Schiff said Hicks did not assert any type of executive privilege, but said she had been advised not to answer.

Lucy Parsons Project Racists Protest Pakistanian Middle Eastern Cafe in San Fransisco

Looks like the GOP can’t help funding fake “progressive” organizations under the guise of fighting for black rights. What’s the new “cause?” A half dozen white women have been daily protesting a local Middle Eastern Cafe owned by a Manny Yekutiel, a man of Pakistani Jewish Descent whose family fled persecution in Pakistan.

Manny Yekutiel opened his eponymous Manny’s in November, calling the Middle Eastern cafe and restaurant in downtown San Francisco a “civic social gathering space.” His goal for the Mission District eatery was “to create a central, accessible and affordable place to go to become a better informed and more involved citizen,” he told the San Francisco Examiner.

Manny’s has earned praise for hosting talks with speakers on issues ranging from Black Lives Matter to urban sustainability.

But Yekutiel, who is Jewish, is being protested weekly, accused of espousing “racist, Zionist, pro-Israel ideals.” His café has been vandalized and painted with anti-Semitic and anti-Israel slogans over and over again — mainly by White racists.

The only allegation seemingly against him is that he is Jewish. Yekutiel has even said he does not support everything the Israeli government does and disagrees with its treatment of the Palestinians — and has many friends who are Palestinian.

Yekutiel reportedly has met nearly all the requirements of United to Save the Mission, a coalition of more than a dozen neighborhood nonprofits and activist groups. They include bilingual signage and staff, moderate prices (a cup of coffee is $1.75) and food prepared by a nonprofit employing homeless, formerly incarcerated and low-income community members, who earn all the food revenue. Community groups can use the space for free.

Trump Promotes “Hitler Lover” Buchanan

Despite claiming 20 years ago that Pat Buchanan was a “Hitler Lover,” the President is now quoting him in tweets.

Last week, Buchanan posted an article on the anti-immigration site Vdare.com that implored Trump to declare a national emergency on the southern border, “because mass migration from the global South, not climate change, is the real existential crisis of the West.” Trump has publicly considered such a declaration as a way to go around Congress in order to secure funding for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

On Sunday, the president quoted a portion of Buchanan’s post in a pair of tweets. The first said, “‘The Trump portrait of an unsustainable Border Crisis is dead on,'” and then listed a number of immigration-related crime statistics. Buchanan did not cite the source of the data, but the context indicated it was from the Trump administration.

In 1999, Trump called Buchanan a “Hitler lover” and said it was “incredible that anybody could embrace this guy.” Buchanan, who has often been accused of expressing racist and anti-Semitic views, at the time was seeking the Reform Party’s nomination for president.

“Look, he’s a Hitler lover,” Trump said on “Meet the Press” in October 1999. “I guess he’s an anti-Semite. He doesn’t like the blacks. He doesn’t like the gays. It’s just incredible that anybody could embrace this guy.”

Every Border Congressperson Opposes Trump Wall

Despite being both republicans and democrats, they have one thing in common: they are completely against a border wall in their district and say no one living there wants it.

Congressman Vincente Gonzalez, a democrat, says he’s not against border security at all.

“I think we can deal with Central American migration in a humane way, have humanitarian centers, even have asylum hearings there. We have the knowhow and we have the experience because we have been doing it here in our southern border. I think we should share that with them and try to attack the problem further south,” said Gonzalez.

Congressman Gonzalez says there needs to be an immigration bill to take care of the immigrants who are in the United States now and set up temporary migrant worker programs like the country has done in the past.

During a private dinner with Mr. Trump last year, the congressman suggested a “virtual border wall,” one that would use technology and existing military surveillance equipment currently not in use. But Mr. Trump wasn’t interested in non-physical alternatives, Gonzalez said.

The USA TODAY Network asked the 534 members of the House and Senate whether they support the $1.6 billion down payment approved by the House and found fewer than 25% of Republicans willing to stand up for the plan publicly.
