Powerful ‘We Are Sikh’ Ads Counter Hate And Spread Awareness




An American Sikh advocacy group launched a $1.3 million ad campaign Friday in an effort to spread awareness about their religion and curb hate-driven crimes toward their community.
The National Sikh Campaign created the commercials, which are scheduled to run during select times nationally on CNN and Fox News, as well as TV channels in Fresno, California, home to one of the largest populations of Sikhs in the U.S. and a hotbed of hate crimes.
The group said the “We Are Sikhs” ad campaign aims to tackle misconceptions about the religion and its followers.
“We’re the least understood major faith in the United States,” said Gurwin Singh Ahuja, executive director of the National Sikh Campaign and former Obama administration staffer. “And that leads to a whole host of issues.”
“Kids get bullied. Mothers have to be extra cautious to make sure their kids aren’t being harassed,” he continued. Continue reading "Powerful ‘We Are Sikh’ Ads Counter Hate And Spread Awareness"

CNN Commentator Slams Jeffrey Lord For Comparing ‘Vagina-Grabbing’ Donald Trump To MLK




CNN political commentator Symone Sanders issued a brutal takedown of fellow pundit Jeffrey Lord after he bizarrely called President Donald Trump “the Martin Luther King of health care.”
“I want to say something here that I know will probably drive Symone crazy, but think of President Trump as the Martin Luther King of health care,” Lord said Thursday on CNN’s “New Day.”
Lord was right about one thing. Turns out, Sanders didn’t appreciate the comparison at all.

“Jeffrey, you do understand that Dr. King was marching for civil rights because people that look like me were being beaten, dogs were being sicced on them, basic human rights were being withheld from these people merely because the color of their skin?” Sanders shot back.
“So let’s not equate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize winner, to the vagina-grabbing President Donald Trump.” 
Lord Continue reading "CNN Commentator Slams Jeffrey Lord For Comparing ‘Vagina-Grabbing’ Donald Trump To MLK"

Dan Rather: Trump Has Had The ‘Worst Start’ Of Any U.S. President Ever






“We’re roughly two months into the Trump Presidency, and it is the worst start to a time in office I have ever seen,” Dan Rather wrote in a Facebook post on Monday, noting that many historians have said the same thing.
Rather, who hosted “CBS Evening News” for 25 years, called President Donald Trump’s first two months in office “chaotic” and “outrageous,” pointing to the president’s failure to repeal Obamacare, the FBI investigation into his campaign’s ties to Russia, and the federal court’s decision to block his first executive order on immigration and travel.
“A weak President running a weak, ragtag administration is a prescription for trouble,” the 85-year-old veteran newsman wrote. “Trouble internationally could come from enemies and other competitors who may see opportunities for advantage and overreach.”

Kellyanne Conway Tries To Distance Donald Trump From Surrogates Tied To Russia






Kellyanne Conway claims President Donald Trump doesn’t know and didn’t work with two of his 2016 presidential campaign advisers who have been linked to Russia. The assertion follows FBI Director James Comey’s confirmation Monday that that the bureau is investigating ties between Trump’s presidential campaign and the Kremlin.
Trump’s counselor said Tuesday that Carter Page, a former foreign policy adviser for the campaign, and J.D. Gordon, a former national security adviser for the campaign, were little more than “fringe players.”
“In the case of Mr. Page, Mr. Gordon, some others, they really have very attenuated contacts to the campaign that I managed for the last three months,” Conway said on “Fox & Friends.” 
“I have spoken directly to the president and other senior officials about Continue reading "Kellyanne Conway Tries To Distance Donald Trump From Surrogates Tied To Russia"

Stephen Hawking Teaches Piers Morgan A Valuable Lesson In Gender Equality






Stephen Hawking may be an distinguished professor of mathematics, but he just schooled Piers Morgan on gender equality.
During an interview with the legendary British scientist on Monday, Morgan posited that the U.K.’s roster of high-profile women in politics points to “scientific evidence” of gender equality.
But Hawking’s response suggested the controversial TV host was overlooking a more important factor in the fight for women’s empowerment.
“It is not scientific proof of gender equality that is required, but general acceptance that women are at least the equals of men or better,” Hawking told Morgan on “Good Morning Britain.”
“If we factor in high-power women in Europe as well, such as [German Chancellor] Angela Merkel, it seems we are witnessing a seismic shift for women to exceed to high-level Continue reading "Stephen Hawking Teaches Piers Morgan A Valuable Lesson In Gender Equality"

Donald Trump Concedes Health Care Bill Could Hurt Many Of His Supporters






President Donald Trump says he’s aware the current version of the GOP’s health care bill could hurt the very people who helped put him in the White House.
The president acknowledged the findings of a recent Bloomberg report, which said working- and middle-class counties that voted for him in November would fare far worse under the new bill than affluent counties that supported Hillary Clinton.
“Yeah,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that aired Wednesday. “Oh, I know that.”
But he indicated that the bill was likely to go through further changes, calling it “very preliminary.”
