The students from the University Wisconsin-Madison want black students to be offered free tuition and housing, but everyone else has to pay.

A student organization submitted a resolution to allow black people the opportunity for a free education since the laws of the past-restricted black education during slavery.

Tyriek Mack, the author of the resolution and a representative of the Associated Students of Madison school organization said, according to AP, that the aim is to improve diversity.

“The university’s rhetoric suggests that it is committed to diversity and inclusion, so this legislation compels the university to move towards action – which is imperative. If no one challenges the university’s empty promises, then the racial composition will remain stagnant.”

The resolution the ASM presented to the university wants all black students to receive free access and for inmates. The cost comes to about $20,000 a year.

Although the idea is presented seriously, there was no serious plan attached on how to pay for the program.

Just fifty black students would cost the university a million dollars, but that isn’t the case. In the school of roughly 43,000 students, 5% are black already. Roughly 2,150 students would stop paying for their education. The cost to the university would be $43,000,000 a year.

University of Wisconsin-Madison is the same school that hit the streets to protest our democratic and fair election.

It is very unlikely the school will adopt the proposed resolution, primarily due to the financial restraints.

Venezuela decides to shut down the broadcasting of CNN in Spanish over a story the government claims isn’t real.

CNN in Spanish ran a story that alleged Venezuelan government officials sold passports to a terrorist group from the Middle East. The report used the testimony of a whistleblower as the basis of the story.

In a news release the National Telecommunications Commission said the story “threatened the peace and democratic stability” of Venezuela.

The Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez framed CNN as being part of a conspiracy to remove President Nicolas Maduro.

Maduro said that CNN is an “instrument of war in the hand of real mafias.”

To further escalate the problems between the US and Venezuela, Trump met with the wife of the imprisoned former leader of Venezuela.

Trump is calling for the immediate release of Leopoldo Lopez who directly opposes the socialist leader Maduro.

CNN is not backing down, and they are standing by their report. In a statement they said, “at CNN en Espanol we believe in the vital role that freedom of press plays in a healthy democracy.”

The former Penn State assistant coach, Jerry Sandusky was convicted of molesting several young boys, and now his son is convicted of similar crimes.

Jeff Sandusky was charged Monday with asking minors to send nude photos and perform sexual acts. Sandusky works at the State Correctional Institution in Rockview, Pennsylvania but has been suspended.

According to documents released by the court, there are two victims that Sandusky conversed with daily.
When Sandusky asked for nude photos from one of the victims and was refused, he urged the young child to delete all the text message and to meet. The young boy didn’t want to take it any further.

“No we don’t need to talk and we aren’t going to. You did what you did and I’m not going to give you a chance to try to justify it. You literally tried to guilt me into doing it and you even told me specifically what I ‘needed’ to do. You know who does that? Rapists and abusers… I don’t know how many times I need to tell you no and to stop before you get it.”

Luckily the victim didn’t delete his text messages and Jeff Sandusky has been charged with 12 felonies and two misdemeanors.

Ironically, Jeff Sandusky stood by his father Jerry during the trial that convicted the former Penn State assistant football coach for molesting several young boys.

Jeff was quoted in a Bleacher Report article in 2015 saying, “My dad is innocent. I can guarantee you that. He’s innocent.”

Over 175,000 residents in California that live below the Oroville Dam are being evacuated after officials declare that the massive dam is going to fail.

Massive amounts of rain and melted snow have filled the lake and the world’s tallest dam can’t take much more. The water is spilling over the emergency spillways and officials are frantic trying to keep them from failing completely and flooding the lower lying areas. For the first time in the history of the reservoir, it has exceeded capacity so early in the year. After the big snow melt in the spring is when it generally fills, but being full now means that this disaster is just developing.

The worse is yet to come. There are cracks forming in the spillways and holes in the dam are getting bigger. There are plans to use helicopters to drop large rocks and sandbags to try and fill the holes and keep the dam in place. The Sacramento Bee is reporting that the spillway is currently releasing twice the amount of water than is coming in and flooding will recede slightly through Tuesday.

Watch live updates on YouTube.

Right now, over 175,000 people have been evacuated, and hundreds of people are trying to work on fixing the damaged Oroville dam. The emergency spillway has been damaged and many officials are worried that it could have a “substantial” failure, which would be devastating to areas below the dam.

Things are bad in Oroville today, but they are about to get a lot worse. The weather coming into the area starting Wednesday will bring many more inches of rain to the surrounding areas and will make this problem a lot worse.

Rain is expected in the surrounding areas from Wednesday though next Monday, and a catastrophic disaster seems imminent according to the Department of Water Resources.

Many people are fleeing south to Sacramento as hotels are filling up quick with no end in site. If the dam’s emergency spillway holds up through the storms, then residents could return early next week.

If there is a major failure like many are expecting, then many of the fleeing residents may not have a home to come back to.

Rosie O’Donnell and Donald Trump are not very fond of each other. Trump has attacked Rosie on Twitter and even made a comment about the View cast member during one of the debates.

Rosie has attacked Donald every chance she has, but her latest plan could be the best yet.

After seeing how upset the administration got when a woman, the hilarious Melissa McCarthy, to play Trump’s press secretary Sean Spicer, Rosie hatched a brilliant plan.

(See Melissa McCarthy play Sean Spicer on SNL)

Rosie O’Donnell wants to play the role of Steve Bannon on Saturday Night Live.

The picture is pretty spot on, but can Rosie pull it off? She wants to try, but will Saturday Night Live make it happen?

She has changed her profile picture to the one above and there is a growing Twitter movement to get her on the famous live stage.

Saturday Night Live has seen a boost in ratings and most of that is due to their portrayal of Trump and his administration. For comedians, Trump is really a gift that keeps on giving. Just one thing, Rosie isn’t much of a comedian anymore.

She may want the role, but it is still up in the air in SNL wants Rosie.

Do you want to see Rosie play Steve Bannon or do you just not want to see Rosie at all? Let us know in the comments below.

Arnold Schwarzenegger took to Twitter to respond to Donald Trump’s recent criticism of the Apprentice with a shocking video.

Thursday morning Donald Trump was introduced to the stage for the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. The man that introduced Trump is the Celebrity Apprentice show’s creator Mark Burnett.

Trump decided to take a light-hearted jab at Burnett that stung Arnold Schwarzenegger at the same time.

“We had tremendous success on The Apprentice, and when I ran for president, I had to leave the show. That’s when I knew for sure I was doing it,” Trump began. “And they hired a big, big movie star, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to take my place. And we know how that turned out. The ratings went right down the tubes. It’s been a total disaster. And Mark will never, ever bet against Trump again. “And I want to just pray for Arnold, if we can, for those ratings, OK.”

Trump was joking with the playful crowd, but the liberal media twisted around that the President was offending the crowd. If anyone should be upset, it should be Arnold, and he was.

The former Terminator star responded with a video he posted to Twitter.

The public feud isn’t really a feud. Both Trump and Schwarzenegger are taking shot at each other. Both are extremely competitive and the extra attention might even boost the ratings of the show.

Were you offended by Trump’s comments? Do you think he should switch with Arnold? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Is Trump following Obama's lead on placating the Gay Community?

Today, President Donald Trump signed a memorandum that pledges to enforce a previous Executive Order signed by Barack Obama.

The order, Executive Order 13672, established protections against discrimination for LGBTQ members while working for federal contractors.

It took effect in July of 2014.

While protections existed based on race, color, religion, national origin, disability, and veteran status exists, before Obama’s signing of the order, “sexual orientation” and “gender identity”, were excluded from protections until EO 13672 was signed.

“Gender Dysphoria” is a mental condition listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders that is published by the American Psychiatric Association.

It was previously listed as “Gender Identity Disorder” and used to diagnose the mental disorder that affects transsexuals and transgendered people.

The Executive Order, continued by Trump, requires federal contractors to hire without bias those with the GID mental disorder.

The Presidential Memorandum released today is below:

President Donald J. Trump Will Continue to Enforce Executive Order Protecting the Rights of the LGBTQ Community in the Workplace.

President Donald J. Trump is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community. President Trump continues to be respectful and supportive of LGBTQ rights, just as he was throughout the election. The President is proud to have been the first ever GOP nominee to mention the LGBTQ community in his nomination acceptance speech, pledging then to protect the community from violence and oppression. The executive order signed in 2014, which protects employees from anti-LGBTQ workplace discrimination while working for federal contractors, will remain intact at the direction of President Donald J. Trump.

Following President Elect Donald Trump’s press conference, documentary film maker Michael Moore appeared on MSNBC to say about Trump, “It was a masterful performance. He owned the room. He owned the day.”

Make no mistake, Moore is no fan of the incoming president, but he has been the only consistent voice on the left that has stated again and again – going back to the primaries – that Donald Trump is a threat . . . because he can win.

Now, after Trump has won the election and is only days away from taking the helm of the United States’ top position, Moore is telling the media, and in this case, MSNBC, that Trump is a threat to them.

The video clip above, which was labeled by MSNBC, “Michael Moore: Donald Trump is ‘Godfather’ of Fake News,” is misleading as Moore covered a variety of topics and even took the time to school the MSNBC host that NBC is an investor in the fake news site, BuzzFeed.

Actress Meryl Streep’s insult to both the NFL and the MMA at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards certainly didn’t go unnoticed.

While the jab was directed more toward “low-brow” Trump supporters, the award winning actress did say that without Hollywood “foreigners,” “you’ll have nothing to watch but Football and Mixed Martial Arts which are not the arts.”

Mrs. Streep forgot about NASCAR.

Regardless, the MMA community, showed intelligence above the knuckle-dragging expectations of Streep with it’s collective response, which was complimentary toward Streep’s career and accomplishments while defending their sport.

Outspoken UFC President Dana White, who is a supporter of President Elect Donald Trump and was a featured speaker at the RNC Convention, went on TMZ to discuss the issue.

While Dana White referred to Meryl Streep as “uppity,” the adjective is hardly up for argument for the Hollywood liberal.
