What a stupid POS!

BTW... It seems likely Manafort and Cohen are going to jail for tax evasion.
That's Al's specialty. Why isn't he behind bars?

Senate rejects Trump, asserts the press is 'not the enemy of the people'




They're not...if you're a Democrat.



Muslim loving president who tried to destroy America almost doubling the national debt in one of the most scandal-ridden presidencies of all time and is named Person of the Year... and wins the Nobel Peace Prize like 45 minutes into office.


On the other hand...






--------------------------------------



The Senate on Thursday approved a resolution asserting that the press is "not the enemy of the people," as President Trump has claimed, and condemning Trump's ongoing attacks against reporters.


The Senate quickly considered the resolution from Sens. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, and Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and passed it unanimously in a voice vote.


The resolution doesn't specifically mention Trump, but a statement from Schatz's office said the resolution was offered in the wake of Trump's effort to "attack journalists and news organizations."


The resolution noted the importance of freedom of the press from the founding of the United States, as well as efforts by "tyrannical and authoritarian governments" to "undermine, censor, suppress, and control the press to advance their undemocratic goals."


"The Senate ... affirms that the press is not the enemy of the people," it read. It said the Senate "reaffirms the vital and indispensable role the free press serves to inform the electorate, uncover the truth, act as a check on the inherent power of the government, further national discourse and debate, and otherwise advance our most basic and cherished democratic norms and freedoms."


It concluded by saying the Senate "condemns attacks on the institution of the free press and views efforts to systematically undermine the credibility of the press as a whole as an attack on our democratic institutions."

Applicants Rejected From Jobs After Company Says They Have ‘Ghetto Names’








A Missouri health clinic sent emails to multiple women applicants, denying them job offers because they have “ghetto names.”

At least 20 women, including Hermeisha Robinson and Dorneshia Zachery, received rejection letters from St. Louis’ Mantality Health center earlier this week that listed their “ghetto names” as the reason the candidates did not get the job. 

“Thank you for your interest in careers at Mantality Health. Unfortunately we do not consider candidates that have suggestive ‘ghetto’ names. We wish the best in your career search,” reads the rejection letter, which Robinson posted to Facebook on Monday. 


Quindaroius Gooch faced the same discrimination but was ultimately hired because they loved his haircut.


Robinson, who applied for a customer service position at the health center, wrote on Facebook that her “feelings are very hurt” and asked people to share the post because “discrimination has to stop.” Her post quickly went viral and received over 11,000 shares as of Thursday morning. 

“When I read the email I was just appalled,” Robinson told local St. Louis outlet KMOV.com. ”[My name] is just unique. It’s from my mom and my father.” 

Zachery added that she teared up when she first read the email.

“The company looked at my name and said ‘No we don’t care about what you’ve done in life, your name is going to dismiss you completely,’” she told KMOV.com.

Mantality Health’s clinic director Jack Gamache told CBS Sacramento that the company’s account was hacked and that police are currently investigating the situation. Gamache added that the company believes a disgruntled employee sent the emails.

“The password for the outside job board site used by Mantality was compromised on August 13, 2018,” CEO of Mantality Health Kevin Meuret told HuffPost in a statement. “We are currently working with law enforcement to identify the perpetrator and consider appropriate legal action. We share the anger and frustration of those who received these bogus emails.”

Meuret told KMOV.com that 20 other candidates received the same email.

“This is not a reflection of who we are as a company,” he said. “This is deplorable.”

The employee listed as sending the email, Jordan Kimler, was not available for a HuffPost request for comment. The company denied that Kimler sent the email.

Discrimination based on a person’s name has long been an issue for job applicants in the U.S. According to a 2002 study that looked at 5,000 resumes for 1,300 job roles, names categorized as “white-sounding” received 50 percent more callbacks for interviews than names that were commonly assumed to be “black-sounding.”

Indeed.com, the job site that hosted the Mantality Health application, said in a statement that they do not believe their site was hacked. 

“Account security is of utmost importance to Indeed and something that we diligently monitor,” the statement reads. “Account holders are responsible for use of their password and we recommend frequent updates and complete confidentiality of your password. Our investigation into this particular account shows no evidence of compromise.”

FLASHBACK: Omarosa Was Fired or Tossed From Govt. Positions Under Clinton… FOUR Different Times




On a tip from Ed Kilbane



by Jim Hoft August 15, 2018





Maybe this is what President Trump really meant by this tweet last week.



5 for 5!

Here’s something that is not making many headlines in the liberal mainstream media.
Omarosa was fired four times by the Clinton White House.
They say she was very “disruptive.”



Raise your hand if you knew that Omarosa was fired from the Clinton White House not once, not twice, not thrice, but four times before. Have barely seen anything on this: “She was asked to leave as quickly as possible, she was so disruptive.” https://t.co/UC8Ac2kPcS

The Cut reported:


…This is not, in fact, the first time Omarosa has left a White House job under less-than-glorious circumstances. In her 20s, she was a political appointee in the Clinton administration where, according to People, she held four jobs in two years.

During a 2004 Q&A in Washington, D.C., shortly after she gained national attention as a contestant on the first season of The Apprentice, Omarosa spoke somewhat bitterly of her time in government:

I have done logistics and advance and event planning for the White House under the Gore staff … At 23, I got appointed to the White House. That was not a place to learn how to be a young professional. That’s a very difficult environment because they don’t believe in training. They just kind of throw you in the fire.

According to a former Gore staffer, though, Omarosa never did logistics or advance work for the vice-president; she worked as a scheduling correspondent, responding to various invitations Gore received.

The staffer also said “she didn’t do her job, and it got everybody in trouble,” and was soon sent to work in the White House personnel office, which then transferred her again to the Commerce Department, where she held two different positions. In the last, she was reportedly “asked to leave as quickly as possible, she was so disruptive.”

Democrats...this is what they're going to run on...socialists who hate America?

Can't wait for the midterms. Not only do they shoot themselves in the foot. They manage to slit their throat on the way down.
