19 Women Says Trump Sexually Assaulted Them.

Lurking in the background of the roiling debate about harassment and assault in American society are the allegations made against President Trump by at least 19 women, many of whom came forward after the release of the Access Hollywood tape in October 2016. Trump vociferously denies any wrongdoing. “Is the official White House position that all of these women are lying?” a reporter asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, in late October. “Yeah, we’ve been clear on that from the beginning, and the president’s spoken on it,” Sanders replied.

Some of the women’s stories date back to the 1980s when Trump’s personal relationships were fixtures of the New York City tabloids; others begin after he returned to the public eye with his NBC series The Apprentice. Their accounts describe a wide range of alleged behavior, including lewd remarks, overt harassment, groping, and sexual assault. One woman, Summer Zervos, is currently suing the president for defamation after he repeatedly called her and the others liars. What follows are details from each accuser—listed alphabetically—and the president’s corresponding defense.

Democrats Introduce Articles Of Impeachment Against Trump aka #45

House Democrats introduced articles of impeachment Wednesday against President Donald Trump, though they acknowledged their efforts have no chance of success while Republicans control both houses of Congress.

Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee, introduced five articles of impeachment that include obstruction of justice for Trump’s decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey, two emoluments clause violations, undermining the independence of the federal judiciary and undermining the freedom of the press.

“The time has come to make clear to the American people and to this President that his train of injuries to our Constitution must be brought to an end through impeachment,” he said.

Cohen, the ranking member on the House judiciary committee’s Constitution subcommittee, acknowledged the limitations of his proposal.

“I don’t expect the House judiciary committee, which is operated like a branch of the administration, to take up hearings,” he said.

He told members of the press he would likely be facilitating briefings in lieu of hearings.

“There are many reasons why I think the President is an awful President, an awful person, but not all those reasons rise to the level of impeaching a sitting President. We are not seeking his impeachment because of what he did before he was President,” Rep. Luis Gutiérrez, D-Illinois, one of the bill’s co-sponsors, said beside Cohen.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders responded in a statement, saying time spent calling for Trump’s impeachment “would be better spent focusing on tax relief for American families and businesses.”

“It’s disappointing that extremists in Congress still refuse to accept the President’s decisive victory in last year’s election,” she said.

Michael Ahrens, a spokesman for the Republican National Committee, called the impeachment effort “radical.”

“House Democrats lack a positive message and are completely unwilling to work across the aisle, so instead they’ve decided to support a baseless radical effort that the vast majority of Americans disagree with,” he said.

This isn’t the first time Democrats have argued to impeach Trump. Earlier this month, Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Washington, said the President has committed “significant constitutional impeachable violations,” adding that Democrats needed to act.

O.J. Simpson Removed and Banned From a Las Vegas Casino. But Simpson’s Lawyer Malcolm LaVergne Says Reports Aren’t True 

O.J. Simpson was reportedly removed from a Las Vegas casino early Thursday morning for unruly behavior.
Simpson’s lawyer, Malcolm LaVergne, said the Simpson was banned from The Cosmopolitan hotel, according to The Associated Press. LaVergne said no reason was given for the ban. 
But LaVergne said that the story about Simpson being drunk at The Cosmopolitan is completely untrue. 


LaVergne says that Simpson is a social drinker, meaning he usually orders one drink and sips on it while socializing, and that he was at the Cosmopolitan to eat chicken wings.

LaVergne also said that the hotel-casino had apparently decided before Simpson’s visit to trespass him from the property. LaVergne says that after Simpson was notified, he left the hotel-casino quietly.

In addition, Simpson is challenging anyone with proof that he was drunk and belligerent to come forward. He is also taking steps to make sure that his probation officer is clear about what happened.

Hurricane Irma is so strong, it literally sucks away Bahamas shoreline.


Hurricane Irma is so strong, it is literally changing the coastline in some areas.Twitter user @Kaydi_K witnessed this phenomenon firsthand, sharing on social media an extraordinary video that showed the ocean floor completely exposed on Long Island in the Bahamas.

“I am in disbelief right now…This is Long Island, Bahamas and the ocean water is missing!!!” she wrote on Friday.

The bizarre and somewhat eerie video is a result of the hurricane’s low pressure and sheer strength, causing surrounding waters to be sucked into its core, the Washington Post reported.

It may be a case of a hurricane “bulge” effect, said Angela Fritz, deputy weather editor for the Post, in which very low pressure in the center of the storm acts as a sucking mechanism, drawing in air and pulling water from the surrounding area.

Although the Tsunami Information Center warns receding waters are typically a precursor to a tsunami, the Post reports that is not the case in this instance.

Instead, the Long Island shoreline that was swept away with Hurricane Irma was expected to gradually return to Long Island on Sunday afternoon, without great force.

Hurricane Irma struck the Bahamas on Friday, as it made its way toward Florida, where meteorologists predicted it would hit the Keys on Sunday morning

The storm is then predicted to hug the state’s west coast, plowing into the Tampa Bay area by Monday morning

         

                                                                

Already Hit Caribbean Islands Brace for 2nd Major Hurricane In A Week. As Jose Approaches. 

Less than a week after being walloped by Hurricane Irma, tiny Caribbean islands are bracing for a new threat: Hurricane Jose.Jose, which was upgraded to an “extremely dangerous” Category 4 hurricane Friday with 150 mph winds, is following Irma’s path and is forecast to come close to the already decimated Leeward Islands, including St. Martin and Barbuda. Jose is not currently a threat to the U.S.


Thousands of Americans are believed to be stranded on St. Martin, U.S. Consulate General in Curacao said, according to The Associated Press. Damage to the island was extensive, with many homes left destroyed and power completely cut off, the AP reported. The damage on St. Martin is so bad that some large resort companies, including Sonesta, have canceled reservations for the rest of 2017. And with a second hurricane nearing, it will be several more days before the island receives any aid.

On Thursday, Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne urged residents of Barbuda, where an estimated 95 percent of structures and vehicles were destroyed by Irma, to evacuate to nearby Antigua as Jose approached. By Friday, the government said it had brought all 1,800 or so of its residents to its sister island to weather the impending storm.

Browne described the damage to Barbuda from Irma as “horrible,” saying the storm ripped into the island with the force of a “bomb” going off.

Meanwhile, Irma is advancing on the U.S. mainland and is now forecast to hit the Florida Keys as a Category 5 storm. Meteorologists expect Irma to make landfall in the Keys between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. ET on Sunday. Overnight projections of Irma’s path showed less of a threat to the Carolinas as the monster storm appeared likely to move directly up the middle of Florida and curve inland.

According to the AP, at least 20 people have died as a result of Irma.

US deploys B-1B bombers and F35 fighter jets to Korean peninsula. Sending a warning to Kim Jong-un


The US is reported to have dispatched a set of supersonic bombers and fighter jets to the Korean Peninsula on Thursday, 31 August, to warn the Kim Jong-un regime after North Korea test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on Tuesday.Two B-1B Lancer bombers flew from the US Air Force base in the Pacific island territory of Guam to conduct bombing drills, where they were joined by two F35 stealth jets in an apparent show of force against North Korea, defence officials were reported as saying.

The Marine Corps’ F35 jets based in Japan were flanked by four F-15K fighters as they trained over South Korea, and a KC-135 Stratotanker aerial refueling plane, the officials said, according to Yonhap news agency.

The aircraft conducted bombing drills over the Pilseung range in the eastern South Korean province of Gangwon.

The drills were designed to “strongly counter North Korea’s repeated ballistic missile tests and development of nuclear weapons,” a South Korean air force official told CNN.

The Seoul-based Yonhap news agency described the flyovers as “high-profile training” as it comes two days after the rogue nation fired a long-range ballistic missile over the northern territory of Japan – the first such incident in eight years.

Flights of the powerful nuclear-capable B1-B bombers have now become routine in the region, especially after North Korea fired missiles in defiance of international warnings and sanctions. They are a key strategic asset to the US forces operating in the Asia-Pacific region.

This is believed to be the fourth time the US military has flown B-1B bombers over the peninsula since North Korea fired an ICBM for the first time in July.

Hours after Pyongyang’s latest ICBM launch, South Korean President Moon Jae-in ordered his country’s air force to flex its muscles and send a strong warning to the isolated country.

The air force’s F-15K fighter jets dropped powerful bombs hitting mock targets at a military field near an inter-Korean border in Taebaek.

Tension has been boiling over in the Korean peninsula after the reclusive state fired dozens of missiles and two nuclear bomb tests since the beginning of 2016.

Pyongyang has also vowed to develop a nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile that it says will be capable of hitting the US west coast.

15 Year Old Girl Charged As A Juvenile In The Killing Of Her Mother. 

 A 15-year-old girl who was the subject of an Amber Alert on Monday is now in custody and charged as a juvenile in the killing of her mother.


Chastinea Reeves was the subject of that Amber Alert on Monday when police found her mother dead in their Gary home. They feared that Reeves may have been in grave danger.

Reeves had shown up at a neighbor’s house with her 4-year-old sister. She was hysterical and saying that something bad had happened to their mother. But when the neighbor went to call police, Reeves took off out the back door and disappeared.

A source says the Amber Alert was not a ruse to catch Reeves.

On Thursday, the Lake County prosecutor said he wants to try Reeves as an adult for the murder of her mother, 34-year-old Jamie Garnett, but that there is a process to that.
The Lake Country prosecutor said he is not permitted to talk about the details of the murder case because juvenile cases are secret, so he could not say how Jaimie Garnett was killed. But he said the information will come out at a hearing on April 12th when they will formally ask a judge to try Reeves as an adult.
Reeves remains in custody at the Lake County Juvenile Detention Center in Crown Point.

Blaq Icons: Gwendolyn E. Brooks 

Gwendolyn Elizabeth Brooks was born on June 7, 1917, in Topeka, Kansas, and died on December 3, 2000 in Chicago, IL. She was the first child of David Anderson Brooks and Keziah (Wims) Brooks. Her father was a janitor for a music company who had hoped to pursue a career as a doctor but sacrificed that aspiration to get married and raise a family. Her mother was a school teacher as well as a concert pianist trained in classical music. Family lore held that her paternal grandfather had escaped slavery to join the Union forces during the American Civil War.

When Brooks was six weeks old, her family moved to Chicago during the Great Migration; from then on, Chicago remained her home. According to biographer Kenny Jackson Williams, Brooks first attended a prestigious integrated high school in the city with a predominantly white student body, Hyde Park High School, transferred to the all-black Wendell Phillips High School, and then moved to the integrated Englewood High School. After completing high school, she graduated in 1936 from Wilson Junior College, now known as Kennedy-King College. Due to the social dynamics of the various schools, in conjunction with time period in which she attended them, Brooks faced racial injustice that over time contributed to her understanding of the prejudice and bias in established systems and dominant institutions in her own surroundings as well as ever relevant mindset of the country.
Brooks began writing at an early age and her mother encouraged her saying, ”You are going to be the lady Paul Laurence Dunbar.”
After these early educational experiences, Brooks never pursued a four-year degree because she knew she wanted to be a writer and considered it unnecessary. “I am not a scholar,” she later said. “I’m just a writer who loves to write and will always write. ” She worked as a typist to support herself while she pursued her career.
She would closely identify with Chicago for the rest of her life. In a 1994 interview, she remarked on this,
“Living in the city, I wrote differently than I would have if I had been raised in Topeka, KS…I am an organic Chicagoan. Living there has given me a multiplicity of characters to aspire for. I hope to live there the rest of my days. That’s my headquarters.”
