Now, we're with Jews. Tomorrow it's blacks," Williams said. Matthews said Trump actually started with blacks, referencing when Trump pushed the idea that former President Barack Obama was not born in the United States. NBC correspondent Katy Tur and Matthews both implied that when Trump talks about "protecting America" and its identity, he really means protecting people of northern European decent. "Does he mean northern Europeans? Is it ethnic?" Matthews asked, after Tur pointed out Trump's message focused on American identity. Tur said she would let the audience decide, but she thought it was "clear" that Trump meant northern Europeans. "I'll let them decide, but it's clear?" Matthews laughed while repeating Tur's comments. Tur said she thought there was a reason Trump started his campaign by "going after Latinos."

During Wednesdays Democratic Leadership Debate on CNN, DNC Chair candidate Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) was questioned about his comment on HBOs Real Time with Bill Maher in 2014 that he wished the Democratic Party would come out against the Second Amendment. Ellison responded to the initial question on the comment by stating, I remember that show very well, and that is not what I said at all. What I talked about is my grandfathers shotgun and the fact that I am a turkey hunter, and I didnt say that. That was not an accurate statement. Moderator Dana Bash then pushed back, Ill read you exactly what happened: Bill Maher, Then why doesnt your party come out against the Second Amendment? Its the problem. Your response, I sure wish they would.

Ryzen thermals What will be really interesting is to see how far the 1800X can be pushed using air cooling. The 8-core chip has a base clock of 3.6GHz with a boost to 4GHz, so we can realistically hope for around 4.4GHz with air cooling, depending on the exact cooling solution and, of course, the CPU lottery (there are always slight variances when it comes to overclocking tolerances with processors, and you just have to hope you get lucky). At any rate, 4.4GHz will be plenty enough for some storming performance levels. Remember that the 1800X will be going on sale for $499 (about 400, AU$650), which is less than half the price of Intels Core i7-6900K. AMD has already claimed that its flagship processor beats the latter in Cinebench R15 multi-threaded, and by a considerable margin: 1,601 to 1,474. Hence all the excitement regarding AMDs new chips it certainly looks like the processor world is about to become a far more competitive environment, which is great news for the average consumer.

Here, you have for the first time other powers in the region Russia, Turkey, Iran actually hammering out a peace deal without the United States. For Obama and John Kerry, this was probably the lowest point in their foreign policy record over the past eight years. Not only did they destroy a secular, internationally-recognized country, a secular nation that gave women rights, that gave freedom of religion to the all the people, that had health care, that had university education for all, they destroyed that country by trying to move it into the hands of al-Qaida/al-Nusra. But they also were pushed out of the peace plan for that country. After Aleppo was liberated, I dont see many people talking about Syria any longer. This was followed by Russia, Iran, and Syria working together to draft a new constitution, without American input, and to try to achieve a solution for Syria, again without U.

Poroshenko and his allies, who are scrambling to establish a relationship with the Trump administration, have distanced themselves from those efforts, and from Leshchenko. The anti-corruption bureau is “fully independent,” a Poroshenko spokesman told POLITICO last month. The spokesman said the presidential administration did not take any “targeted action against Manafort.” The spokesman said Leshchenkopositions himself as a representative of internal opposition in the Bloc of Petro Poroshenko’s faction, despite [the fact that] he belongs to the faction,” adding, “it was about him personally who pushed [the anti-corruption bureau] to proceed with investigation on Manafort.” The post that appears to be the first to disseminate the texts from Manafort’s daughter included some anti-Trump language, justifying the hack as retribution on behalf of those damaged by Trump’s politics.

Environmental activists and Pruitt's critics in the Senate -- namely, Democrats -- had pushed to have the emails released before last week's confirmation hearings, as a last-minute effort to prevent his confirmation. Devon Energy spokesman John Porretto said his company's correspondence with Pruitt was "consistent -- and proportionate -- with our commitment to engage in conversations with policymakers on a broad range of matters that promote jobs, economic growth and a robust domestic energy sector." He added, "It would be indefensible for us not to be engaged in these important issues." Pruitt's office at the EPA has not yet commented on the release of the emails. On Tuesday he addressed his EPA staff for the first time, saying "We as an agency and we as a nation can be both pro-energy and jobs, and pro-environment. We don't have to choose between the two."

Dubbed the Oceti Sakowin camp, the site became a focal point for U.S. environmental activists and Native Americans expressing indigenous rights, drawing some 5,000 to 10,000 protesters at the height of the movement in early December. Most have drifted since away, as tribal leaders urged people to leave due to harsh winter weather, while pressing their opposition to the pipeline in court. Roughly 300 demonstrators had remained until this week. Protesters and police have clashed multiple times since August, with more than 700 arrests tallied. On Wednesday authorities appeared intent on avoiding clashes, though 10 arrests were made as protesters confronted police in riot gear on a highway outside the camp entrance before the officers retreated around nightfall. President Donald Trump has pushed for completion of the pipeline since he took office last month, signing an executive order that reversed an Obama administration decision and cleared the way for the $3.

It warned if schools were to discriminate, they could lose funding. Republicans pushed back, 13 states sueing to challenge the directive. Earlier this week the Trump Administration signalled it was reversing the policy. The President has maintained for a long time that this is a states rights issue, and not one for the federal government. So while there will be further guidance coming on this, I think all you have to do is look at what the President's view has been for a long time.

The White House has pushed back the release of a new executive order to replace its directive suspending travel to the United States by citizens of seven mostly Muslim countries, a White House official said Wednesday. The order is now expected to be issued "sometime next week," the official said. President Donald Trump said last week he expected to release the new order this week. Trump said the new directive will address legal concerns raised in Washington state, San Francisco and elsewhere about the original order, which was issued on Jan. 27. The order, which was quickly implemented, caused chaos at airports around the world as visa holders heading to the United States were pulled off planes or turned around upon arrival at U.S. airports. Americans were deeply divided over the order, which was condemned by prominent U.S. companies and allies before being temporarily blocked by federal courts.

Chicago is considering naming a street after Oscar Lopez Rivera, the domestic terrorist who founded the FALN terror group responsible for killing six people and perpetrating some 130 bombings and terror attacks on U.S. soil between 1974 and 1983. Twenty-sixth Ward Alderman Robert Maldonado submitted a proposal to name a three-block stretch of North Luis Munoz Marin Drive after the convicted terrorist early in February. The proposal was quickly pushed through ahead of new rules that would prevent people who are still living from having a Chicago street named after them. Alderman Maldonado attempted to claim that the new street name is not meant to honor the FALN terror outfit but is only meant to honor Rivera. Others note that it is farcical to claim you are honoring a man whose only claim to fame is in starting a terror group while pretending you are not also honoring the terror group.

"The sentencing scheduled for 2/24/2017 is cancelled," said the...
