May Day marchers take to US streets in heated election year

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hundreds of May Day marchers chanting slogans and carrying signs — and at least one Donald Trump piƱata — took to the streets of Los Angeles on Sunday calling for immigrant and worker rights and decrying what they see as hateful presidential campaign rhetoric.

It's one of several events in cities nationwide to call for better wages for workers, an end to deportations and support for an Obama administration plan to give work permits to immigrants in the country illegally whose children are American citizens.

"We want them to hear our voices, to know that we are here and that we want a better life, with jobs," said Norberto Guiterrez, a 46-year-old immigrant from Mexico who joined families, union members and students who marched through downtown.

Demonstrators repeatedly called out Trump for his remarks about immigrants, workers and women. The leading Republican presidential contender has called for a wall on the border with Mexico and chided Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton for playing the so-called "woman card." ...

Was Hastert Protected by the Old-Boy GOP?

He should be behind bars for the rest of his life and go to hell! m/r

Hastert Answers Molestation Accusations: 'I Mistreated Some of My Athletes' | PJ Media

By Bridget Johnson April 27, 2016

Former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) was sentenced to 15 months in prison today for a hush-money case tied to his molestation of boys as a wrestling coach years before his congressional career.

Hastert, 74, also faces two years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine. He got nabbed for evading banking rules while paying off an alleged victim; however, due to the statute of limitations he can't be charged for sexual offenses.

Hastert struck a plea deal with prosecutors last year, but it was revealed in sentencing documents this month that federal officials believe he molested at least four boys, the youngest 14 years old, during his years as a high school teacher between 1965 and 1981. The filing said Hastert's acts included "intentional touching" of the students' genitals and oral sex with a minor, in locations including an empty locker room and motel room.

Judge Thomas M. Durkin lashed out at Hastert as a "serial child molester" during today's sentencing hearing, and openly regretted he couldn't give the former congressman more time behind bars.

Karl Rove and Hugh Hewitt are the Ultimate Old Boy GOP Losers

These are status quo Washington D.C. "insiders" who have given us losers and lies. They embody Baloney. m/r

Karl Rove: "Bunch Of Baloney" To Blame Me for GOP Losses in 2008, 2012 - YouTube
Published on Apr 2, 2016
Karl Rove gets combative with FOX News Channel's Charles Payne who filled in for Neil Cavuto on Friday's broadcast of Your World on the news network. Rove was defending his comment that a "fresh face" is needed in the Republican party. ROVE: You know what? I wasn’t the campaign manager. I wasn’t in charge. I was a loyal soldier. I wanted both John McCain and Mitt Romney to win, but thank you for blaming me for their defeat. But that’s a bunch of baloney and we know it … I’m willing to take responsibility if I’m in charge but I wasn’t in charge of the last two presidential campaigns.

Protests in Baghdad throw administration’s Iraq plan into doubt - The Washington Post

Obama’s plan for fighting the Islamic State is predicated on having a credible and effective Iraqi ally on the ground in Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi.

And in recent days, the administration had been optimistic, despite the growing political unrest in Baghdad, about that critical partnership.

But that optimism — along with the administration’s strategy for battling the Islamic State in Iraq — was thrown into severe doubt after protesters stormed Iraq’s parliament on Saturday and a state of emergency was declared in Baghdad. The big question for White House officials is what happens if Abadi — a critical linchpin in the fight against the Islamic State — does not survive the  turmoil that has swept over the Iraqi capital.

The chaos in Baghdad comes just after a visit by Vice President Biden that was intended to help calm the political unrest and keep the battle against the Islamic State on track.

What, No Equal Time for a Mohammad Dartboard?

University backs down – removes Jesus dartboard


After an outcry was raised by students, potential students, alumni and the general public, Rutgers University has removed a “provocative and controversial” piece of artwork from the campus library.
The art piece, entitled “Vitruvian Man,” featured Jesus hanging from a dartboard rather than a cross. Instead of nails, red darts were placed in his chest, hands and feet, with blood dripping from the stab wounds.
The report came from Campus Reform, which explains what it found: “An alleged ‘art display’ at Rutgers University featuring a figure of Jesus Christ on a dartboard, with darts inserted where He was wounded on the Cross, is being held up as a contradiction of the school’s professed commitment to diversity,” wrote reporter Peter Fricke.
The report said the image was posted by a former Rutgers student on a Facebook page for the Class of 2016. She said it was in the school’s art library. The posting received nearly 150 comments, with some defending the display as an expression of free speech.
