By Fortune, Sep. 23, 2017 

Hillary Clinton spoke about her thoughts on what she viewed as sexist comments by President Donald Trump and women who continued to support him.

“When I see women doing that, I think why are they publicly disrespecting themselves? Why are they opening the door to have someone say that about them in their workplace? In a community setting? Do they not see the connection there?” Clinton said in an interview on AM Joy.

By Washington Examiner, Sep. 23, 2017 

The University of North Carolina's championship-winning men's basketball team won't make the customary visit to the White House, a team spokesman said Saturday.

The Tar Heels attributed the decision to scheduling difficulties rather than political animus for President Trump. But the announcement came on the same day that Trump rescinded Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry's invitation to the White House in response to the NBA star's reported hesitance to make the trip.

NAACP rallies behind Stephen Curry after Trump 'dissed' him, promotes #takeaknee demonstrations


By Washington Examiner. Sep. 23, 2017 

An army of anarchists in black clothing and masks routed a small group of right-wing demonstrators who had gathered in a Berkeley park Sunday to rail against the city’s famed progressive politics, driving them out — sometimes violently — while overwhelming a huge contingent of police officers.

Hundreds of officers tried to maintain calm in and around Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park before the 1 p.m. “No to Marxism in Berkeley” rally, putting up barricades, searching bags and confiscating sticks, masks, pepper spray and even water bottles. The goal was to head off the type of clashes that sprang from similar rallies in the city earlier this year.

Golden State Warriors Won’t Visit Trump’s White House


By Deadline News, Sep. 23, 2017 

In a statement tweeted by the NBA champs, explaining their decision to bypass the traditional championship visit, the team said, “While we intended to meet as a team at the first opportunity we had this morning to collaboratively discuss a potential visit to the White House, we accept that President Trump has made it clear that we are not invited. We believe there is nothing more American than our citizens having the right to express themselves freely on matters important to them. We’re disappointed that we did not have an opportunity during this process to share our views or have open dialogue on issues impacting our communities that we felt would be important to raise.

'Real Life Clown': NFL Players Slam Trump Over Criticism


By NBC News, Sep. 22, 2017

President Donald Trump on Friday criticized NFL players who kneel in protest during the national anthem before games, suggesting that owners should fire any player who does so. After Trump made the statement at a political rally in Alabama, a number of players responded to the president, calling him a "clown" and saying he should stick to politics.

Several athletes, including a handful of NFL players, have refused to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner" to protest of the treatment of blacks by police. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who started the trend last year when he played for the San Francisco 49ers, hasn't been signed by an NFL team for this season.

By The Hill, Sep. 23, 2017

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell fired back at President Trump on Saturday for encouraging league owners to remove players who take a knee during the national anthem, saying Trump’s “divisive comments” show “an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL.”

How Obama is funding the anti-Trump resistance


By NY Post, Sep. 23, 2017

Wall Street might be shocked to learn it is helping bankroll the anti-Trump “resistance” movement that’s aggressively fighting policies it favors — including corporate tax cuts and the repeal of Obama-era banking and health-care regulations.

The Obama administration’s massive shakedown of Big Banks over the mortgage crisis included unprecedented back-door funding for dozens of Democratic activist groups who were not even victims of the crisis.
