      This story is heart breaking. No child, or anyone else, for that matter, should ever be the victim of hate-filled bullying.

      ___________________________________________________________________

      'Bellevue fourth grader says she has been bullied since school started in September. After months of telling teachers, administrators and the district, she was feeling desperate and posted a video on Facebook to get help for herself and other students who are bullied.
      '
      The video was shared more than 17,500 times and reached more than 670,000 people.

      'Nasir Andrews, 9, is finishing fourth grade at Ardmore Elementary School in the Bellevue School District.

      'Andrews, who is black, said other students have called her "Nutella" and "servant".


      '"A student called me 'Nutella,' and I told my after-school teacher and she said it wasn't racist and she made me write the definition of racist," Nasir told KIRO 7 on Wednesday.

      'Andrews says she was picked on for buying her lunch and laughed at on the school bus. Her parents got her a lunch box and let her bring her lunch some days. They started driving her to school every day.

      'She said students in her class would take her snack and eat it or throw it away. At recess she says classmates ran away from her. She says she's been pushed, kicked and choked.'

      Kellyanne Conway Says Democrats Lost Brain Functioning Because Of 'Russian Concussion'

      It finally dawned on me what Kellyanne Conway reminded me of--a rag doll, an empty-headed stuffed plaything,

      OR a ventriloquist's doll--an empty-headed mouthpiece, all mouth but without a single thought of her own. How sad for her.

      _____________________________________________________________________

      'Kellyanne Conway, the senior adviser to President Donald Trump whose way with words has often stirred controversy, was at it again on Fox News Wednesday night.

      'Conway lamented the media’s focus on federal investigations into the Trump campaign’s ties to the Russians during last year’s presidential election, sharpening her attacks on the left with a punchy new phrase.

      '"The media and the Democrats have this Russian concussion," Conway said to conservative TV host Sean Hannity. "They have lost muscle memory to be able function in any other way to talk about anything he's doing."

      'Conway's strong criticism arrived the night after Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff lost against Republican Karen Handel in a special election in Georgia’s 6th District to replace incumbent Tom Price, Trump’s head of the Department of Health and Human Services. It was the most expensive congressional race in history, and a close one: Ossoff managed to beat several Republican contenders and garner over 48 percent of the vote in a district that's been held by the GOP for decades.

      'Despite the Democratic Party's loss, Georgia's election results sent a clear signal to Capitol Hill that Republican constituents may be losing faith in the Trump administration, as the president and the GOPs controversial health care reform plan face widespread disapproval.'

      In Just A Year, Republicans Became Far More Skeptical Of Claims Of Racism

      I for the life of me cannot see how Black Lives Matter is considered by some to be racist and divisive. For me personally, if a particular group feels so threatened that they feel compelled to call attention to their plight, in this case the shooting of unarmed Black children, teenagers and men by the police and the sometimes brutal way they are treated by the police, then Black Lives Matter is a cry for others to wake up and take notice of what is unfolding, because if people don't wake up and take notice, this unwonted killing and brutality will continue unabated without anyone taking the least bit of notice, which is, in and of itself, already a great tragedy because that means that no one cares a fig about what is happening to Black children, teens and men, our fellow Americans, our brothers.

      I also cannot understand how non-Blacks can be more skeptical of claims of racism for the simple fact that they are not Black. They have no idea what it is like to be Black, to live as a Black person and they have no idea as to just what kinds of racism Blacks experience in their daily lives. No, non-Blacks do not have the right to sit and judge just how much racism Blacks experience.

      'Republican attitudes toward African-Americans hardened significantly in 2016, according to an authoritative new study.

      'Only 32 percent of Republican voters in 2016 said they believe that African-Americans face “a lot of discrimination.” That was a significant drop from just a year earlier, when the Public Religion Research Institute asked the same question. In that survey, 46 percent of Republicans responded that blacks experience significant discrimination.

      'In fact, more than half of Republicans told PRRI in 2016 that “discrimination against whites has become as big a problem as discrimination against blacks and other minorities.” Among Democrats, 69 percent disagreed with this statement, and 59 percent of Independents disagreed.

      'The 2016 study surveyed 40,509 people by phone in the second half of the year, starting in mid-May, just after Trump had effectively clinched the nomination.

      'About three-quarters of Republican voters are white Americans who identify as Christian, said PRRI CEO Robert P. Jones.

      'Attitudes among voters of other political persuasions stayed fairly steady on the question of discrimination against African-Americans during this period. Among Independents, 58 percent said in 2016 that blacks are discriminated against, a drop of just one point. And 77 percent of Democrats answered affirmatively in 2016, down just three points from a year earlier.

      'When PRRI first asked the question in its 2015 study, public awareness of the Black Lives Matter movement was still growing. Since then there have been a number of other well-publicized cases of blacks killed by police under questionable circumstances.

      'Jones noted that President Trump’s campaign in 2016 included “a very hard push back to Black Lives Matter … that began to be seen as the Republican response.”

      'Trump called the group a “threat” and that “a lot of people feel that it is inherently racist.”

      '“It’s a very divisive term, because all lives matter. It’s a very, very divisive term,” Trump said.'

      Detroit Judge Halts Deportation Of Iraqi Christians

          'A judge on Thursday temporarily halted the deportation of more than 100 Iraqi Christians living in the Detroit area who fear torture and possible death if sent back to Iraq.

          'U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith said in a written order that deportation is halted for 14 days while he decides if his court has jurisdiction to hear their plight.

          'The Justice Department had argued that the detainees, including many who were recently rounded up after decades in the U.S., must go to immigration court to try to remain in the U.S., not U.S. District Court. But the American Civil Liberties Union said they might be deported before an immigration judge can consider their requests to stay.

          'Goldsmith heard arguments Wednesday. He said he needs more time to consider complex legal issues.

          'Potential physical harm "far outweighs any conceivable interest the government might have in the immediate enforcement of the removal orders before this court can clarify whether it has jurisdiction to grant relief to petitioners on the merits of their claims," Goldsmith said.

          'Most of the 114 Iraqis are Chaldean Christians, but some are Shiite Muslims and converts to Christianity. They were arrested on or about June 11 and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said all have criminal convictions.

          'Iraq recently agreed to accept Iraqi nationals subject to removal from the U.S.

          '"The court took a life-saving action by blocking our clients from being immediately sent back to Iraq," Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project, said in a release. "They should have a chance to show that their lives are in jeopardy if forced to return."'

          Why China Is My Favorite Country!


          Understanding the rise of China | Martin Jacques 24:39
          Published on Jan 24, 2011
          Speaking at a TED Salon in London, economist Martin Jacques asks: How do we in the West make sense of China and its phenomenal rise? The author of "When China Rules the World," he examines why the West often puzzles over the growing power of the Chinese economy, and offers three building blocks for understanding what China is and will become.

              'Speaking at a Cedar Rapids, Iowa rally Wednesday, President Donald Trump claimed credit for the idea of a solar panel border wall with Mexico, according to the Associated Press.

              'During the rally, he spoke about his mission to advance technology in rural areas of the United States, saying that he would encourage drones and sensors on harvesting equipment. However, the highlight of the rally was when he suggested putting solar panels on the proposed border wall that would separate Mexico and the United States. President Trump has previously spoken about building a border wall, suggesting hypothetical benefits such as a decrease in illegal immigration and drug trafficking.

              '“We’re thinking of something that’s unique — we’re talking about the southern border, lots of sun, lots of heat. We’re thinking about building the wall as a solar wall, so it creates energy and pays for itself,” he said. “Pretty good imagination, right? Good? My idea.”

              'Except it wasn’t quite his idea.'

              NATO Jet - Trolls Russian Defense Ministers Jets

              As Jimmy Dore States, what? Are we trying to start world war 3. This isn't an action that Russia is probably going to take lightly. Clearly we need to stop the BS aggression, America and the world doesn't want WW3, but yet it seems the powers at be, are trying everything they can do to start it up.

              I thought I was passionate about no wars/conflicts. Well, Jimmy Dore has showed me I lack some spunk.. Warning he is very animate and uses strong language in this video. Well worth the watch. I swear this guy lives in my head. We think soooo much alike. Progressive Power.

              Also: Warning he goes into the "fake news" of Hillary's servers and what not.. Lizzy
