WATCH LIVE: #NotMyPresident protesters take to the streets across America to rally against Trump

Published

on

Following the result of a nightmarish election on November 8, New Yorkers are taking to the streets in protest of President-Elect Donald Trump.

The crowd met at Union Square in Manhattan on Wednesday night at 6 p.m. ET and planned to take the protest to Trump Tower. Thousands took to the streets, not only in protest of the new president, but also against everything he has stood for.

A Facebook page that shared word of the protest hosted by Socialist Alternative NYC wrote that “the Democratic party has failed.”

The page also noted that Wednesday’s rally would be an intersectional movement against mass deportations of undocumented immigrants, for Black Lives Matter, against the Dakota Access Pipeline, a fight against rape culture and attacks on women, and in opposition to an elite class.

Stars arriving under bright California skies in couture gowns and extravagant jewels were greeted by the British comic's signature cutting one-liners at the awards ceremony, the first of the year building up to next month's Oscars.

"Let's go out with a bang, let's have a laugh at your expense, shall we?" joked Gervais, hosting the awards for the fifth and final time, before tearing into the industry.

FBI surveillance of Trump aide reflects flaws in secretive FISA system that mostly targets Muslims

Published

on

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz said Wednesday the FBI should have considered halting its surveillance of Trump’s campaign aide Carter Page months before it did, after it was revealed that accusations against him may not be credible. Horowitz made the comments while testifying to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, saying the FBI used false information to obtain approval to wiretap Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and raising wider concerns about the agency’s use of surveillance. He testified a day after the highly secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court — known as the FISA Court — issued a public order accusing the FBI of misleading the court to gain approval to wiretap Page, and ordering the FBI to propose changes in how its investigators seek permission for domestic surveillance of U.S. citizens by January. Last week, Horowitz issued a first report finding a series of inaccuracies and omissions in the FBI’s surveillance application process. We speak with Ashley Gorski, staff attorney with the National Security Project at the American Civil Liberties Union.

‘America is running away like rats’: Watch angry Kurds blame US troops for dead babies as they withdraw

Published

on

The Associated Press obtained video of Kurds pelting American military vehicles with fruit as they withdrew from Syria.

The video was first captured by a Kurdish news agency, the AP said in a report on Monday.

“Like rats, America is running away,” one man shouted in Arabic. Another shouted obscenities and talked of babies in Kurdish-held Syria who had died in the Turkish offensive.

The scene encapsulated the Kurds’ feelings of betrayal and added a new indignity to a US withdrawal that has been rushed and involved several close brushes with Turkish-backed forces.
