SAN FRANCISCO — A man who allegedly rode his motorcycle through a crowd of activists blocking a San Francisco street during a Wednesday afternoon protest against the GOP health care bill was detained by police after the dangerous stunt.

CBS San Francisco reports protesters had gathered outside the San Francisco Federal Building at 7th and Mission streets at around 12:30 p.m. and were conducting a "die-in," in which a group of around 20 people laid down on Seventh Street to block traffic, when the incident occurred.

Emily Lee, a spokeswoman for the group Bay Resistance, which organized the protest along with Senior and Disability Action, said the man drove up on a red motorcycle, traveling the wrong way on Seventh Street.

"Everyone thought he was just confused, but he didn't stop, and at some point it became clear he was going to come through the crowd and people jumped out of the way," Lee said.

Syria conflict: Australia suspends military air operations

Source: BBC

The pause was a "precautionary measure", the government said, without giving details.

Moscow's warning came after the US shot down a Syrian military plane.

Russia also said it was halting communications with the US aimed at preventing such incidents.

Australia has deployed about 780 military personnel as part of the US-led coalition fighting so-called Islamic State (IS) in both Iraq and Syria.

If you want to see something funny. Check out the responses to her June 6 tweet on ideas to get your dad. I'm not going to help her by giving a direct link advertising her brand here. But you can easily find it by googling ivankatrumphq.

A tourist resort in Mali popular with Westerners is under attack by gunmen.

The country's government said "suspected jihadists" were behind the assault, AFP reports.

Nearby residents reported hearing shots fired at the luxury destination - Le Campement resort in Dougourakoro, to the east of the capital Bamako.

The government says the attack is ongoing. Malian troops and soldiers from France's Bakhane counter-terrorist force are at the site.

Dipshit donnie the human "Monkey's Paw"

In 1902 author W. W. Jacobs wrote a short story of a magic monkey's paw. It bestowed 3 wishes for each owner. But every time the wishes went terribly wrong.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Monkey%27s_Paw

Donnie is that monkey's paw in human form. He wished to win the Presidency and got that wish. But it doesn't seem to have turned out well.

The people around him who directly supported him and wished he would win a lot of those people are now under investigation.

The voters who wished he would be president hoping for a better life are seeing a president who abandoned them the first day. And has gone out of the way to make their lives worse.

Jared Kushner and Wu Xiaohui, the chairman of Anbang Insurance Group.

He was taken away and under investigations by Chinese authorities Friday. I wondered since the Kushner family had business ties in China were there any links. And yep, here is a article from Jan. 7, 2017

Burrs comment about Rogers closed session was interesting.

Burrs comment was directly after Heinrich accused Sessions of 'obstructing this investigation'. Could it have been a shot across the bow saying the intel committee already has corroboration of Comey's statement?

From The Hill.

"NSA director spoke to committee in closed session

4:13 p.m.

NSA Director Adm. Mike Rogers answered the committee’s questions in a closed setting on Monday evening, Burr said.

Rogers was criticized by lawmakers on the committee for dodging a number of questions related to the Russia investigation at a recent open hearing.

According to the Washington Post, Trump made an appeal to Rogers and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to publicly deny the existence of evidence of collusion between Trump campaign associates and Moscow, after Comey acknowledged the existence of the FBI investigation.

Neither official has publicly confirmed the report.

Burr said Tuesday that Rogers “spent almost two hours in closed session with almost the full committee” and “thoroughly answered” their questions. "

http://thehill.com/policy/national-security/337577-live-coverage-sessions-testifies-before-senate-intelligence


Remember while Coats couldn't give a reason why he wouldn't talk about it. Rogers said he would talk about it in a closed session. Could it be he has already talked to Meuller and was told he shouldn't say anything about the ongoing case in open session?

Watch to see if trash talk toward Rogers starts coming out from the WH. That seems to be the M.O. of this WH.

holy shit: altright nazi loser who thinks frog memes put trump in office vs the nazis who actually..
