RE: Nike and stupidity of the left
What a SAD, Pathetic life you must have!
Nike hired Colin Kaepernick as their "Just Do It" guy and the left love them for it.
The shitty part (there always has to be a shitty part when talking about the left) is that they have is that would rather praise Nike for supporting an "oppressed" highly privileged multi-millionaire than support the kids who work in the Nike sweatshops.
To the left, Colin is a bigger victim than the kids slaving away in Nike sweatshops.
Does anyone still wonder why I #WalkAway?!
Russia Renewed Trump Trademarks On Election Day
Amid a broadening investigation of Russian contacts with his associates and his own role in trying to stop it, President Trump fired off another angry tweet this past week repeating his assertion that he has no business interests in Russia.
But while no Trump Tower graces the Moscow skyline, the Russian authorities recently made sure that another piece of valuable property — the intellectual kind — bearing the same name remained safely in Mr. Trump’s portfolio.
Last year, while hacking Democrats’ emails and working to undermine the American presidential election, the Russian government also granted extensions to six trademarks for Mr. Trump that had been set to expire. The Trump trademarks, originally obtained between 1996 and 2007 for hotels and branding deals that never materialized, each had terms that were coming to an end in 2016.
Despite their inactivity, the Trump Organization sought extensions for the trademarks from Rospatent, the Russian government agency in charge of intellectual property. In a series of approvals starting in April 2016 and ending in December, Rospatent granted new 10-year terms for the trademarks, the agency’s records show.
Republicans worry working for Trump damages reputation
At least 27 Republicans have sought professional advice over concerns that working for President Trump's administration could damage their reputation, according to The Washington Post.
Republicans told the Post they have turned down White House job offers and sought out head-hunters due to their worries.
The report comes as the Trump administration grapples with the ongoing investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russian election meddling, which has reportedly caused potential employees to think twice about any opportunities available in the administration.
The anxiety Republicans feel about working for the administration has apparently complicated the process of filling administration posts. The Trump administration has moved slowly on hires since the president took office in January.
Six resign from presidential HIV/AIDS council because Trump 'doesn't care'
Six members of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS have angrily resigned, saying that President Trump doesn’t care about HIV.
Scott Schoettes, Lucy Bradley-Springer, Gina Brown, Ulysses Burley III, Michelle Ogle and Grissel Granados publicly announced their resignations in a joint letter published in Newsweek titled, “Trump doesn’t care about HIV. We’re outta here.”
The group said that the administration “has no strategy” to address HIV/AIDS, doesn’t consult experts when working on policy and “pushes legislation that will harm people living with HIV and halt or reverse important gains made in the fight against this disease.”
“As advocates for people living with HIV, we have dedicated our lives to combating this disease and no longer feel we can do so effectively within the confines of an advisory body to a president who simply does not care,” they wrote.
The group noted that Trump took down the Office of National AIDS Policy website when he took office and hasn’t appointed anyone to lead the White House Office of National AIDS Policy.
They also said that the GOP’s ObamaCare repeal bill will dramatically hurt those with HIV/AIDS, making it the “final straw for us — more like a two-by-four than a straw” in deciding to leave the council.
“We will be more effective from the outside, advocating for change and protesting policies that will hurt the health of the communities we serve and the country as a whole if this administration continues down the current path,” they wrote.
“We hope the members of Congress who have the power to affect healthcare reform will engage with us and other advocates in a way that the Trump Administration apparently will not.”
Tillerson Admits US Has Not Discussed Chechnya’s Gay Torture Camps With Russia
During a hearing held by the House Foreign Affairs Committee Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told Members that he has not raised the issue of the atrocities committed against gay and bisexual men in Chechnya with his Russian counterparts. This revelation came after a series of questions by Rhode Island Democratic Representative David Cicilline (video above).
A bipartisan group of lawmakers passed House Resolution 351, sponsored by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) last month, which condemned the violence and persecution of LGBTQI people in Chechnya. However, neither the president nor senior U.S. officials including Secretary Tillerson have yet to actually weigh in on the situation, with the sole exception of United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley.
Human Rights Watch has verified gay men in Chechnya abducted, held in secret locations, tortured, and killed.
International outcry has included statements condemning the detentions and killings by world leaders such as Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, President Emmanuel Macron of France, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada.
A spokesperson for the Washington-based Human Rights Campaign took issue with Tillerson’s remarks to the committee.
“People have been tortured and killed in Chechnya, yet Secretary Tillerson admitted today he hasn’t raised concern about the atrocities against gay and bisexual men with his Russian counterparts — not even once,” said HRC’s Government Affairs Director David Stacy. “When directly asked during the hearing to clearly condemn the attacks, Sec. Tillerson declined to do so. And he had no idea if the President has raised the issue. The Trump/Pence administration’s lack of leadership on this issue and human rights around the globe is beyond disturbing. The time for action is now.”
GOP rep: Trump partially to blame for hostility that led to lawmaker shooting
Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) said President Trump is “partially” to blame for the hostility in the nation that led to the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and others at a congressional baseball practice.
“I would argue the president has unleashed, partially, again not in anyway totally, but partially to blame for the demons that have been unleashed,” Sanford said Thursday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
He referenced Trump's remarks during the campaign that he'd like to punch a protester in the face, saying the comments were “bizarre” and “we’ve ought to call it as such.”
“They’ll say, ‘If the guy at the top can say anything to anybody any time, why can’t I?' ” Sanford said.
He said he believes many on Capitol Hill are taking the time for some “heavy soul-searching" after Wednesday's shooting, which left Scalise in critical condition and four others injured.
Poll: CEOs give Trump a failing grade
Half of CEOs and business executives would give President Trump an “F” for his presidency so far, a new poll finds.
Another 21 percent of the leaders surveyed at the Yale CEO summit would give Trump’s performance a “D,” and just one percent would give the president an “A,” according to CNN Money.
Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, the Yale School of Management professor who led the summit, said the overarching message from CEOs is that Trump has to “stop random 3 a.m. tweets” and “the needless brushfires diverting from the agenda."
Sonnenfeld noted 80 percent of the leaders surveyed are CEOs, including Blackstone CEO Steve Schwarzman and IBM’s Ginni Rometty, who are both on Trump’s advisory council.
"This was not a granola-eating crowd of Democrat entrepreneurs. It's a cross-section of the business community, including some who are quite pro-Trump," he said.
McCain: 'I'm very worried we're going to lose the House'
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) expressed deep concern on Tuesday that Republicans are at risk of losing their majority in the House due to a flimsy list of legislative accomplishments so far.
“I’m very worried we’re going to lose the House of Representatives," McCain said at a Wall Street Journal event for chief financial officers. "I don’t think that we’ve accomplished much.”
While the House managed to pass an Obamacare repeal-and-replace plan on its second try, the Senate is now writing its own version of the legislation. The House is also struggling to come up with plans for the budget, tax reform and infrastructure — three other top priorities for the Republican Party and the White House.
McCain on Tuesday also lambasted both the Obama and Trump administrations for not responding effectively enough to Russian cyberattacks. He called for restrictions to join the military to be loosened in order for the Unites States to be able to launch its own cyberattacks with what he called "Troll Team Six."
