Jerusalem protests latest: Two Palestinians 'killed by Israeli fire' in clashes on 'Day of Rage'

Source: Independent

Two Palestinians have been killed in clashes over US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, after Hamas called for a “Day of Rage” in protest against Donald Trump’s decision.

Israeli soldiers shot the two men dead on Friday near the Gaza border, the Palestinian Health Ministry said in a statement, while the Red Cross said scores were wounded in clashes across the West Bank.

The Israeli military said hundreds of Palestinians had rolled burning tyres and thrown rocks at soldiers across the Gaza border.

“During the riots Israel Defence Forces (IDF) soldiers fired selectively towards two main instigators and hits were confirmed,” an army statement said.

Way to go D. Trump. And if Israel is going to target instigators then .....

Damn it has been 37 years ago today and I still miss John

It was a hit job

WMDs in Iraq, Obama eats arugula, the IRS is after conservatives, Al Gore said, "I invented the
the internet.", Hillary did nothing to save those people in Benghazi, John Kerry was not a war
hero, Ohio 2004 was clean, coal jobs are coming back, Dan Rather faked the story about W
going AWOL. and on and on.

This is a right wing hit job. “It’s my right as an entertainer.” Please! Who the hell
talks like that? (outside of Russian trolls)


Another woman says Franken tried to forcibly kiss her

Source: Politico

A former Democratic congressional aide said Al Franken tried to forcibly kiss her after a taping of his radio show in 2006, three years before he became a U.S. senator.

The aide, whose name POLITICO is withholding to protect her identity, said Franken (D-Minn.) pursued her after her boss had left the studio. She said she was gathering her belongings to follow her boss out of the room. When she turned around, Franken was in her face.

The former staffer ducked to avoid Franken’s lips. As she hastily left the room, she said, Franken told her: “It’s my right as an entertainer.”

“He was between me and the door and he was coming at me to kiss me. It was very quick and I think my brain had to work really hard to be like ‘Wait, what is happening?’ But I knew whatever was happening was not right and I ducked,” the aide said in an interview. “I was really startled by it and I just sort of booked it towards the door and he said, ‘It’s my right as an entertainer.’”

Middle East on edge after Trumps dangerous Jerusalem move

Source: NBC

Angry clashes erupted in the West Bank Thursday as the Middle East braced for violence over President Donald Trump's contentious decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

U.S. embassies around the world were on alert for protests after the announcement, which sparked uproar among world leaders and upended decades of American policy.

In Bethlehem, Israeli police fired tear gas to disperse demonstrators while Palestinians set tires alight and threw rocks in Ramallah. In Jerusalem, about 20 chanting protesters at the historic Damascus Gate were ordered to leave by police.

Powerful Palestinian Islamist group Hamas called for a new intifada — or uprising — against Israel while a prominent Iraqi militia Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba, said Trump’s “stupid decision” could become a "legitimate reason" to attack U.S. forces in Iraq.

With yesterday's vote in the Senate please remember that Russia/Republican election rigging ...

.... also effected senate races too. Russ Feingold had a 90% + chance of winning his
race and election models had the Democrats taking control of the senate.

It was a coup and we had treason.

66 programs that will be cut as a result of Trump's budget .

One last try .... make those phones ring in D.C. ..... call republican senators now

We're expecting a Senate vote in a few hours. Sign on to oppose this terrible tax bill, then call the Senate Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and tell your senator to vote NO!

Give your zip code and make sure to tell him/her why the tax bill is bad.

Flynn @ the RNC

Former Trump adviser Michael Flynn has been taken into custody by the FBI

https://thinkprogress.org/michael-flynn-charged-fbi-bc815c614f54/

Lock him up!

**********

On Friday morning, former national security adviser Michael Flynn was taken into federal custody for making false statements to the FBI. It’s the latest stunning twist in the ongoing Russia investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

According to court documents, Flynn has been charged with “willfully and knowingly” making “false, fictitious and fraudulent statements” to the FBI regarding his conversations with senior Russian diplomat and former ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak. CBS News reported that Flynn turned himself in on Friday morning and was subsequently processed and scheduled for a federal court hearing, reportedly before U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras at 10:30 a.m. ET.

He is expected to plead guilty.
