Two Ohio teenagers were attacked at a Waffle House in what police believe was a racially motivated attack, reports the BG Independent News.

Two men were arrested after yelling racist slurs and physically attacking two customers at the Waffle House restaurant on March 31. Bowling Green Police said the alleged assailants — Jacob Dick, 22, and Zachary Keller, 21 — have been charged with assault and ethnic intimidation.

“As soon as we walked into the Waffle House, they started saying ‘here come the s—-.’ And telling us how Trump was going to take care of us immigrants,” said Justin Hartford, one of the victims of the attack. He claims they uttered the N-word over and over.

“We weren’t saying anything to them. That’s the craziest thing,” Hartford claimed. “It was based on just the way we looked. That is so messed up – who cares what anybody looks like.”

Bloomington News confirmed that the attack went down as the teens described it by multiple witnesses.

Then the men started beating them, drawing blood. Zarrick Ramirez also got beat up by the two men and says that he “he was drenched in blood,” when the attack ended.

“I’ve never been hated on like that,” Ramirez added.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said that while she had applauded Ocasio-Cortez's surprise victory in her 2018 primary against Wall Street-backed former Rep. Joe Crowley, she has since cooled on the lawmaker due to what she views as a dismissal of baby boomers' past activism. Ocasio-Cortez has pushed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to back a Green New Deal, called on her fellow Democrats to support Medicare for All, and criticized Democrats who take big-money donations from the financial, for-profit healthcare, and fossil fuel sectors.

Published

Cybersecurity experts have been warning that it isn’t a question of whether or not the Russian government under President Vladimir Putin will try to interfere in the United States’ 2020 election — it’s a question of how successful they will be and the ways in which they will make an attempt. Three security experts (Alex Finley, John Sipher and Asha Rangappa) address this concern in a February 19 article for Just Security, warning that troubling vulnerabilities remain in the United States’ election system.

Trump ‘does have a tendency to lash out’: Texas Republican tells president to ‘temper’ his rabid impulses

Published

on

Republicans are concerned about President Donald Trump's rabid impulses and are urging self-discipline and constraint, two words that aren't typically associated with the president.

In a Politico report, Republican officials explained that they agree with the attorney general that Trump should calm down and let him handle things.

“The president does have a tendency to lash out, and I think in this case he would be well advised to try to temper that,” said Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX). “Because I think Bill Barr is his best path on seeing that justice is done in terms of all of these various investigations, including the counterintelligence investigation and the lead-up to the Mueller report.”
