John Lewis fundraises off criticizing Trump: ‘Divided evenly’ between DNC, campaign

January 16th, 2017

Attacking Donald Trump pays.

Just ask Rep. John Lewis, of Georgia.

The 16-term Congressman from Atlanta ignited a controversy over the weekend when he told NBC News’ “Meet the Press” that he doesn’t “see the president-elect as a legitimate president,” and credited Russian hackers with helping The Donald into the White House.

The comments now appear to be by design, clearly intended to instigate an online feud the “civil rights leader” is now leveraging to fill his campaign coffers.

Donald Trump supporters want to see the Talladega College marching band in the Inaugural Parade.

So much so, the band’s GoFundMe goal of $75,000 to attend the inaugural was surpassed by over 500%.

Fox & Friends reported Saturday morning that the “historically black” Great Tornado Band’s fundraising haul had reached $278,069.

But as of Saturday afternoon, that total grew by nearly $100,000, to $362,976. By Sunday morning, it was over $366,000. At 8 a.m. on Monday, it was over $418,000!

Over 7,500 people gave contributions in just 11 days, according to the band’s GoFundMe page. The band says the funds will be used for “transportation, travel, lodging and other expenses” related to their appearance.

“I look forward to seeing you perform,” wrote Patricia Galligan, who gave $100.

San Bernardino terrorist’s brother pleads guilty to immigration fraud

The brother of San Bernardino terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook pleaded guilty Tuesday to immigration fraud in connection to the 2015 attack that killed 14 and wounded 22 others.

Syed Raheel Farook, 31, will face a mandatory five years in prison and fine of up to $250,000 when he’s sentenced by U.S. District Judge Jesus Bernal in November after he pleaded guilty to his involvement in the attack.

According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement:

Syed Raheel Farook; his wife, Tatiana Farook; and his sister-in-law, Mariyah Chernykh, were charged in an indictment returned by a federal grand jury in April 2016. All three were charged with conspiracy to knowingly make under oath a false statement with respect to a material fact in an application, affidavit, and other document required by the immigration laws and regulations of the United States, and to commit perjury. 

The indictment alleges that, beginning in late 2014 and continuing through February 2016, the three defendants conspired with Enrique Marquez Jr. to obtain immigration benefits for Chernykh by arranging and carrying out a fraudulent marriage between Chernykh, a Russian citizen, and Marquez, a U.S. citizen. The conspirators allegedly made false statements in immigration documents submitted on Chernykh’s behalf.

VIDEO: Mystery glitch makes MSNBC guest repeat ‘Russia’ 28 times

Can technology have a Freudian slip? Maybe if it’s owned by the mainstream media.

MSNBC’s constant coverage of Russia’s behavior took a hilarious turn Thursday night when a mystery glitch struck “Hardball,” causing guest David Ignatius of the Washington Post to repeat “Russia” numerous times before the screen went black.

The tech freeze caused him to repeat it some 28 times, according to our count.

After several seconds of the dark screen — with only the scrolling headlines and time still visible — host Chris Matthews reappeared and continued with another topic.

Did Obama target Cubans because majority voted for Trump?

By Kyle Olson

Did President Obama make it more difficult for Cubans fleeing their communist homeland to gain a foothold in America because a majority supported Donald Trump for president?

Pew reported:

In Florida, Cubans were about twice as likely as non-Cuban Latinos to vote for Donald Trump. More than half (54%) supported the Republican president-elect, compared with about a quarter (26%) of non-Cuban Latinos, according to National Election Pool exit poll data.

A significant share of Cubans in Florida voted for Hillary Clinton – 41% – but this was far below the 71% of non-Cuban Latinos who backed the Democratic nominee. At the same time, the level of support for Trump among Cubans was similar to that of non-Latinos in the state (51%).
