Busing migrants to Sanctuary Cities is the ‘compassionate thing to do’: Trumpster Kirsten Pearson

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson appeared on Steve Hilton’s Fox News show Sunday to rant about the president’s latest plan to bus migrants into Sanctuary Cities.

While critics have railed against Trump for using human beings as a political ploy, Pierson claimed that bussing people into the cities was the “compassionate thing to do.”

“The government had one function it would be to protect the homeland but the reason it is so hysterical, and we are laughing here because these are the same people in the media who are declaring chaos because the president is making the necessary changes to one of his agencies that will implement his policy,” she said in the Fox panel discussion.

Pierson then admitted, “there is no chaos on the border.”

“We had the president consistently want to fix the policies,” she continued, saying Trump tried to talk to the Democrats, but they wouldn’t play ball. The Democrats and Republicans in Congress developed a deal they’d been working on for years. When the GOP controlled the House and Senate, the plan was set, and the votes were there, but Trump refused to sign it.

“Now we have tens of thousands of more people along the way, so the president says ‘OK, fine, we will send these asylum-seekers to the communities that say we want asylum-seekers and it is a compassionate thing to do to resettle these immigrants into communities that want to protect them and keep them safe,'” she closed.

John Oliver unleashes on news sites that sent out stupid push notifications

Published

on

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver doesn't come back until Feb. 16, but he dropped a new web-exclusive video Sunday complaining to news agencies that they should stop sending out stupid push notifications on their apps.

Oliver told his audience that there are two major criteria when considering a push notification: 1. Is there something I should be doing differently?; and 2. Is this something I need to know now?

Things like declarations of war, earthquakes or acts of terrorism are all perfect examples of things news agencies should inform readers about quickly. But when CNN sent out a push notification about a 115,000 Neanderthal child that was only found "half-eaten" by a bird, Oliver was understandably frustrated.

Billionaires are now richer than 60 percent of the world’s population: report

Published

on

The world's billionaires have doubled in the past decade and are richer than 60 percent of the global population, the charity Oxfam said Monday.

It said poor women and girls were at the bottom of the scale, putting in "12.5 billion hours of unpaid care work each and every day," estimated to be worth at least $10.8 trillion a year.

"Our broken economies are lining the pockets of billionaires and big business at the expense of ordinary men and women. No wonder people are starting to question whether billionaires should even exist," Oxfam's India head Amitabh Behar said.

"The gap between rich and poor can't be resolved without deliberate inequality-busting policies," Behar said ahead of the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, where he will represent Oxfam.

Alcohol-infused gummy bears infuriating candy giant Haribo

Published

on

Ander Mendez and his friends were hoping they'd struck it rich when they came up with the idea of selling alcohol-infused gummy bears -- until they found themselves in the sights of sweet giant Haribo.

Now, these three Spaniards say they're afraid of being shut down by the German confectionery king, which is famed for its vast array of jelly sweets and was founded 100 years ago in the western city of Bonn.

In a not-so-sweetly worded legal letter, Haribo has accused their startup of infringing its trademarked little bear.

But these graduates from the northern Spanish port city of Bilbao insist they will carry on producing their "drunken gummy bears" -- "because people like them."
