Does Donald Trump Want to “Make America Great Again” by Re-Fueling Race Wars?

Friday night [September 22], Donald Trump landed in Huntsville, Alabama to campaign and show his support for Sen. Luther Strange. Strange has practically based his entire campaign on convincing potential voters how much of a close knit relationship he has with Trump, and how much he supports and agrees with all of our President’s outrageous objectives, goals, and viewpoints. In doing so, Strange hopes to garner the majority vote in the Republican primary runoff.

As apart of his endorsement for Strange, Trump gave another mouth dropping speech that probably made a lot of viewers cringe but more importantly, a speech that could make many wonder is this the start of a race war initiated by our very own President? Amongst the many topics Trump touched on, his statements in regard to the NFL National Anthem Player Protests were the most disturbing. “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners when someone disrespects our flag — to say, “Get that son of a b*tch off the field right now,” Trump said. “OUT! He’s fired!”

Trump went on to acknowledge that whatever coach is the first to take such a course of action against player protests will be the most popular person in the country. As if the demolition of the black man is a necessary achievement to be honored in what seems like our country’s big popularity contest. Trump followed up on such an absurd statement by stating, “That’s a total disrespect of our heritage. That’s total disrespect for everything we stand for.”

Obviously, oblivious to the sole reason these players are protesting it is sad and unfair that Trump can find the fault in these players protests but cannot seem to acknowledge the outright disrespect from racist police officers who some have blatantly, and others who may have accidentally taken the lives of innocent African American people. Is that what America stands for?

The classy, charming, ever so eloquent former President Barack Obama, wouldn’t dare use his influence to throw personal blows at NFL players who have chosen to use their platform to stand for a cause that is close to the heart. It makes it comical yet very scary to witness Trump address menial sports matters more passionately than he ever addressed the natural disasters that happened in Houston, Florida, and Puerto Rico.

If Trump and Strange and all of their supporters share the same great American values, it makes one wonder are those values to ignore the plight of the African American community and move forward with no regard or compassion towards the inequality still experienced in a post-slavery America? Will we make America great again by returning it to its original state of racial warfare? Is that the plan of action?

Donald Trump Should Be More Concerned About North Korea and Natural Disasters Instead of Sports

Just 10 days before Hurricane Harvey devastated Houston, Texas, President Donald Trump canceled one of the most progressive flood-risk management policies, put in place by Barack Obama. The policy, Federal Flood Risk Management Standard (FFRMS), approached the construction at flood-risk boundaries with caution. While we all know that compassion isn’t Donnie’s strongest suit, he seemed to putting his best foot forward in this situation by being in constant communication with FEMA and vowing to push a major recovery package through Congress. He even put his phone down a went to visit Corpus Christi and Austin, which suffered relatively light damage compared to the city Houston.

Following this disaster came two more: Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria, which left trails of death and destruction throughout Florida and the Caribbean. Reports say that it will take months to restore power in Puerto Rico meanwhile, the island of Barbuda was completely wiped off the map. Extinguishing a civilization that lived on the island for more than 300 years.

On the other hand, we’re at the brink of a nuclear war with North Korea, and all our President seems to care about is NFL players peacefully protesting the National Anthem. Trump took shots at Colin Kaepernick during a campaign for Luther Strange which enraged current and past NFL players. He also announced on Twitter that the Golden State Warriors were uninvited to the White House because Stephen Curry was “hesitating”, after clearly stating he had no interest in attending anyway.

Who’s in charge of prioritizing Trump’s agendas? Apparently Donnie doesn’t have his priorities straight and he seems to be showing signs of mental illness.

Authorities Seize New ‘Treasure Trove’ Of Evidence In Search For Culprits Of Alleged Kevin Hart Extortion

The controversy and behind-the-scenes legal drama raging around Kevin Hart‘s extortion case rages on this weekend — and the feds now believe they have a “treasure trove” of new data and evidence that will help lead them to the culprits.

As you’ll remember from our reporting over the past week, Hart was the victim of a sex tape leak in which an unknown group of people allegedly attempted to extort seven figures from him to keep cheating allegations out of the press.

Authorities quickly got involved, Montia Sabbag was named as Hart’s female partner in the sex tape in question, and things kept moving along as the extortion was investigated.

Well, now, authorities have themselves a new batch of evidence to sift through thank to a host of search warrants on multiple people they believe to be involved with the extortion.

The most critical piece of all this evidence will apparently be the massive amount of phone records seized: who called who, and when, will prove to unravel this whole case.

Authorities still want more evidence, though, and they’re looking for cell phones and computer hard drives as their search continues.

As for specific suspects, authorities aren’t yet ready to divulge any more info than this: they are not close to Kevin himself, and this does not appear to be an inside job.

Related: Kevin Is ‘Really Embarrassed’ About The Extortion Scandal!

Apparently most of the suspects know Montia, but Kevin didn’t know any of them.

Now, Montia and her lawyer, Lisa Bloom, are scheduled to meet with investigators in the coming days — she still insists she was never part of the extortion plot. We’ll see about that.

But at least for now, it looks like the circle is tightening around those trying to extort money from Kevin Hart.

Scandalous!!!

Chime in: Should Microsoft’s next phone be another Lumia instead of a Surface?

For obvious reasons, lots of Windows phone fans (or former fans) really want Microsoft to release a “Surface phone” that would swoop in and save the company’s mobile presence. But would it make more sense for Microsoft to stick with the Lumia brand?

It’s an interesting question, one that’s sparked a lively conversation in the Windows Central forums. Of course, nobody outside of Redmond really knows whether or not Microsoft has any plans to release a new phone. So all the hoping and wishing may be for naught. But that won’t stop us from speculating.

Forums member faisalbaba created a thread to discuss the whole Lumia-vs.-Surface thing.
