CNN cuts ties with Kathy Griffin over comedian’s anti-Trump photo

Kathy Griffin continues to drown in backlash over a gruesome photo shoot that enraged President Trump, drew widespread bipartisan criticism and has now cost the comedian her longtime New Year’s Eve co-host job with CNN.
Griffin’s firing by CNN came hours after she apologized for the shocking picture in which she was seen holding a prop of Trump’s bloody, severed head.
In a video posted Tuesday night on social media, Griffin said she crossed the line and that the image was too disturbing.
“I sincerely apologize. I am just now seeing the reaction of these images,” the 56-year-old comedian and reality TV star said of the picture.
Trump, returning from his “covfefe” break Wednesday morning, attacked her over the widely denounced image, which the president called “sick!”

‘Stop Shaking Your Head’: Sean Spicer Lashes Out at Reporter April Ryan

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer snapped at a female reporter on Tuesday over a question about the administration's image, telling the veteran White House correspondent to "stop shaking your head" — a snide comment that drew rebuke from Hillary Clinton and several prominent women journalists.

 Spicer got into a heated exchange with American Urban Radio Networks' correspondent April Ryan at the White House press briefing after the reporter asked how President Donald Trump's administration would work to repair its image. Ryan followed up with a question about Trump's meeting with former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, whom Trump made a vulgar comment about in 2006.

Kamala D. Harris, U.S. Senator for California

Senator Harris Wraps Busy State Work Period With Roundtable and Town Hall Upon Return From Middle East

Friend - 
Senator Harris kicked off a busy April state work period after her first official trip overseas, returning home to explore innovative solutions to put Californians back to work and hear from constituents at a town hall.      
On Thursday, Senator Harris, a member of the U.S. Senate Committee on the Budget, convened a roundtable with representatives from the Worker Education & Resource Center (WERC) and Los Angeles Trade Technical College (LATTC) to discuss the need to invest in job training for a 21st century economy and speak out against President Trump’s proposed cuts to workforce development programs that train workers for good-paying jobs. The Senator later toured LATTC’s Allied Health Simulation Lab and discussed their certificate program that allows students to earn educational credits while exploring various allied health pathways before deciding on a career. 
On Friday, Senator Harris held a town hall before a packed crowd at Holman United Methodist Church in Los Angeles, hearing directly from Californians about critical issues facing communities and the country. Senator Harris answered questions that ranged from protecting the environment and preserving the Affordable Care Act to President Trump’s immigration policy. Here’s how she kicked it off.   
“I believe this is a moment in time almost unlike any other that is requiring us to fight for those ideals,” Senator Harris said. “In terms of what everybody can do, the letter writing, the phone calling, the emails, the marches are making a difference. We cannot tire; there is too much at stake with all the conversations we are having. So what do people do? Keep doing what you are doing. There is nothing too small to put your energy and time in to.”

The Senator also traveled to Iraq and Jordan, meeting with servicemembers and U.S. personnel across the Middle East to discuss the challenges they face in the fight to defeat ISIS. Senator Harris later visited the Za’atari Refugee Camp and witnessed firsthand the impact of the Syrian refugee crisis under President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

President Trump Didn't Shy Away From Comparison to Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte

President Trump Didn't Shy Away From Comparison to Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte

11:45 AM ET

President Trump decision to extend a White House invitation this weekend to President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines is drawing condemnation from rights groups and doubts within the Administration.
But the President—who pushed a tough-on-crime message in his campaign for the White House—has hardly tried to place distance between himself and controversial leader before.

North Korea coping with shortage of gasoline

April 20 (UPI) -- Gas stations in the North Korean capital of Pyongyang have suspended services due to a gasoline shortage in the country, according to Chinese state media.
China's Global Times reported Thursday several fueling stations in the city were shut down and the price of 4 gallons of gasoline had risen from $13 to $22.
Fuel for cars was only being provided to vehicles with diplomatic license plates, according to the report.
A Chinese investment official in the country who spoke anonymously said that stations servicing foreign envoys "never shut down."
The restricted service is unprecedented and possibly a forewarning of rising oil prices, the official told the Global Times.
The report, however, did not provide details on why the measures were being taken, or whether China was signaling to North Korea of impending sanctions.
China is expected to take bold measures against North Korea if Pyongyang goes ahead with a sixth nuclear test.
Beijing could cut its supply of crude oil, a heavy form of punishment that could cut into the 1 million tons of oil China supplies to the relatively isolated country annually.
North Korea relies on China for 75-90 percent of its oil imports and the fate of North Korea's economy depends heavily on Chinese actions.
The two countries have shown signs of a new rift following the summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
State media have been more outspoken in criticism of the Kim Jong Un regime, and North Korea in turn may be cracking down on the viewing of Chinese media, according to sources in the country.
An ethnic Chinese resident in North Korea told Radio Free Asia authorities have cracked down on foreign media in Chongjin, North Hamgyong Province.
The crackdown extends to the ethnic Chinese population who were once free to watch the movies in their homes, the source said.

House Intel Committee Members Press Conference On Michael Flynn 4/27/17

Playing In the Kitchen and running with knives

WEST SACRAMENTO CA (IFS) -- German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ivanka Trump had nothing but nice things to say to each other Tuesday during their brief encounters in Berlin. Instead, they let subtle shade speak to the obvious tensions created between them by President Donald Trump.

Merkel thanked the first daughter and recently appointed assistant to the president for having "braved this trip to Germany" during a gala dinner Tuesday night, including a slight nod to her father’s far-right ideologies on immigration and global trade, two issues the world leaders differ greatly on. "I hope we were a good audience for you,” Merkel said, “and that you’ll take some new ideas home with you."

Hours earlier, Ivanka Trump was hissed and booed at while defending her father’s advocacy for women on a stage she shared with Merkel Tuesday afternoon. The first daughter insisted her father was "a tremendous champion of supporting families and enabling them to thrive."
The United States’ longstanding alliance with Germany has been thrown into question due to a riff between Merkel and Trump during her first trip to the U.S. since the 2016 election. The president reportedly handed the German chancellor an "outrageous" bill for money he believed her nation owed NATO. The alleged invoice called for Merkel to fork up nearly $300 billion. The two leaders did not shake hands at the end of their meeting in March.

Judy Slater - Hardcore Racist

Fox News Channel says it has fired Judy Slater, who worked as a comptroller for the 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news outlet for nearly two decades, in the wake of what it called “abhorrent behavior” that had been brought to the attention of senior management in recent weeks.
Slater had been accused of marking derogatory comments to African-American employees at the TV unit, according to a person familiar with the matter, and was investigated after the situation was made known to Kevin Lord, executive vice president of human resources at the company, which comprises the operations of both Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network. This person said the executive had been accused of making demeaning remarks to African-American staffers and ridiculing the way she said the employees pronounced words.
Thirteen current or former Fox News employees of color, including a current anchor, have joined two racial discrimination lawsuits against the network, CNN reported Wednesday. Those dozen-plus plaintiffs are just the beginning, their lawyer predicted.
“This lawsuit will continue to grow, I suspect,” attorney Douglas Wigdor said at a press conference, according to CNN, noting that he has received calls from additional on-air Fox employees since he filed an amended version of the complaint Tuesday.
In a statement, Wigdor accused the network of “systemic race discrimination” and expressed hope that the litigation would prompt the network to take swift action.
“When it comes to racial discrimination, 21st Century Fox has been operating as if it should be called 18th Century Fox,” the statement read.

Russian and Chinese Military Heads to North Korean Borders


Dailymotion's Copyright Infringement Notification for "LIFEBOAT" Downloaded from a Russian Movies Archive Site

WEST SACRAMENTO CA (IFS) -- It appears that Russian Movie Archives are not allowed as downloads on the internet.  The search was, in investigating many links, this writer came upon the stream of "LifeBoat".  A fantastic copy, well balanced, just like Hitchcock's vision.  

The copy in question is from Russia.  

Secondly, it's in their public domain.  

Now there is a legal fight over a SEVENTY (70) year old film that's in Public Domain.  CEO and President Kenneth Howard Smith of Smith Data Communications, parent company to SDC OmniMedia Group, SDC DIGITAL RadioWorks, which specializes in old films and digital distribution concludes ". . .when these old films were being snapped up starting about 1993 as VHS tapes, the value was zero."  

Smith help with the creation of early VHS to digital recording software and hardware to create the first public domain movie archives.  

In the early days of computers, Smith had to right small programs, with routines and sub-routines. Having to re-write the same instructions, Smith decided to place these routines into databases.  Smith's  first offering was SDC's  eSBASE.  

After the first  release on local computer BBS in the old days, the building of programs was as easy as just using plan text to describe your routine and the eSBASE would build the program in about twenty minutes that load over eight - 5 1/2 inch data disks.

Other crazy things that Smith has completed, by placing an mp3 file on a 3 1/2 inch floppy disk at 1.44 M in the early days.  Smith is also known for creating the program "Snapper" that removed and aligned sentences and periods in a scanned document.  Smith also help with the development of the early True Type and Letra Set type faces that were converted to digital media.

Smith knows quite a bit about compression and squeezing data into small spaces back in the early days. One of Smith's early programs include the first home business database entitled " Check-Mate" that help compile monthly checking accounts.

The base software sub-routines were the foundation for thousands of computer programs in the early days of the IBM-PC 80808 - 80286 series units.

Smith's battle for a film that was made four (4) years before he was born, and now at almost 75 years old, Smith must defend a piece of art that is clearly art of the Public.  "It is with great anticipation that SDC OmniMedia Group receive these papers for legal action.  It's going to be like a basketball game -- lots of three (3) point shots. Smith adds.

Anyone tell AG Sessions that Hawaii is a State in the United States of America?

WEST SACRAMENTO CA (IFS) --  Did AG Sessions really vote for the judge that cancelled his Boss's Ban on travel?  It goes to show you that the only thing is missing here is Sessions White Robes and crosses to burn.  In 2017, we really have the most white supremacist and people of color hater in the country.  It's all about him.  Even a letter from the grave of Coretta Scott King can not detour this ignorant and self centered bigot. -khs

On that day in March of 1959, thousands took to the streets of Honolulu, playing Dixieland music and waving banners, with children stopping to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.
Congress had just sent a bill to the White House to give Hawaii the statehood it had “so long deserved,” local reporters wrote. Five months later, on Aug. 21, the collection of islands in the Pacific Ocean officially became the 50th state of the United States.
During the years of statehood that followed, thousands of Hawaii citizens served in the military, died and were wounded in wars in Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq, won countless decorations and spearheaded civil rights advancements. Others served with distinction in Congress, particularly the late Democratic Sen. Daniel Inouye, who had lost an arm fighting in World War II with the famed Japanese American 442nd Regimental Combat Team, ultimately winning the Medal of Honor.
One Hawaii-born American rose to become the president of the United States.
But on Thursday, some felt as though the 50th state was being disrespected, relegated to five words: “an island in the Pacific.”
In an interview with “The Mark Levin Show” that was later uncovered by CNN, Attorney General Jeff Sessions implied that a judge from Hawaii — which he called simply “an island in the Pacific” — should not be able to strike down Trump’s travel ban.
“I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the president of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and constitutional power,” Sessions said.
Later, Justice Department spokesman Ian D. Prior clarified Sessions’s remarks in a statement: “Hawaii is, in fact, an island in the Pacific — a beautiful one where the Attorney General’s granddaughter was born,” he said. “The point, however, is that there is a problem when a flawed opinion by a single judge can block the President’s lawful exercise of authority to keep the entire country safe.”
The comments were not only demeaning, it was noted, but also geographically incorrect. The state of Hawaii is not, in fact, an island in the Pacific — it is a stunningly beautiful collection of islands, an archipelago of eight major islands and many islets and atolls. Its wondrous beaches and mountains attract millions of visitors from the U.S. mainland, who don’t need passports to visit, and bring in massive amounts of revenue to the United States from foreign countries, especially Japan.
One of its islands is indeed called Hawaii, but the federal judge that Sessions criticized is based in Honolulu on the island of Oahu.
