You can be a Trump supporter by default. But of you are a Trump supporter by choice, you are an Idiot.
I do appreciate being insulted by someone as uneducated as yourself. However, I cannot allow your stupidity to go uncorrected.
First, I can tell you are a lazy Liberal. How can I tell this you ask? You used the wording of clean url slugs instead of writing what the article actually said. The title should be "Trump gets millions from gold club members"
Second, you cannot in fact be a Trump supporter by default. It is a choice to support any candidate. Claiming you support him just because he is Republican is the same weak minded thinking that gave someone such as yourself trophies for trying
Finally, you want the word if and then a comma.
But, if you are a Trump supporter by choice you are an idiot.
Yet we have already established you cannot support someone by default. Any support given to a political candidate is an active choice.
Thus, your post should read.
"Trump gets millions from gold club members"
If you are a Trump supporter, you are an idiot.
Next time please put forth some effort in your post.
Have they completely lost their minds?
USA Today is acting like the KGB here. There was ZERO wrongdoing by the club members here. USA Today publicly doxx and shame people for the simple reason that USA Today doesn't like who they voted for and who they play golf with.
I swear to god. If the insane Commie Jews in control of our media are not defeated soon they will turn this nation into another Soviet Union.
Fuck them. I hope they all die.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) blasted President Trump's decision to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
The program allowed foreign children of illegal immigrants to remain in the United States. Trump set a six-month sunset on the program.
Emanuel addressed a room full of DACA recipients, or Dreamers, telling them "you are welcomed in the city of Chicago."
"This is your home and you have nothing to worry about," he said.
"OUR SCHOOLS, OUR NEIGHBORHOODS, OUR CITY - AS IT RELATES TO WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID - WILL BE A TRUMP-FREE ZONE," HE SAID.
Emanuel said his program allowing high school students with a "B" average to attend community college and have the taxpayers pick up the tab will be open to DACA recipients.
"You will always be Dreamers in the eyes of the city of Chicago, because you have big dreams and we want to be a part of those dreams," he said.
>"OUR SCHOOLS, OUR NEIGHBORHOODS, OUR CITY - AS IT RELATES TO WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID - WILL BE A TRUMP-FREE ZONE," HE SAID.
Thank god, wouldn't wish anyone to have to live in that crime-and gang-ridden shithole.
The man was removed from the invitation-only town hall in handcuffs and is being charged with disrupting a public meeting and disorderly conduct.
>“We’ve been here for a while. You probably haven’t seen the news. Can you confirm whether or not your daughter Bridget has been kidnapped?” Radecki asked the senator.
>After several seconds, Radecki then said, “The reason I ask is because that’s the reality of families that suffer deportation.”
how dare he shed an unfavorable light on the congressman's platform with a frightening question.
town halls are for photo ops, not making people think and bring attention to pressing issues.
tbh people should pay a fine or go to prison for asking bad questions in public.
N ANTHROPOLOGIST AT THE AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL UNIVERSITY (ANU) MAY HAVE STUMBLED ACROSS A CLUE TO RESOLVING ONE OF THE MOST ENDURING MYSTERIES OF PACIFIC HISTORY – THE FATE OF FAMOUS FRENCH NAVIGATOR, JEAN FRANÇOIS DE GALAUP, COMTE DE LA PÉROUSE WHO DISAPPEARED IN 1788.
La Pérouse was instructed by King Louis XVI to undertake a major voyage of exploration in the Pacific to emulate the feats of Captain James Cook. He departed the French port of Brest in 1785 with two frigates and a complement of 225 officers, sailors and scientists.
Dr Garrick Hitchcock, of the ANU School of Culture, History and Language, believes the last survivors of La Pérouse’s voyage were shipwrecked on the Great Barrier Reef near Murray Island, in northeast Torres Strait.
“La Pérouse’s voyage of discovery in the Pacific is recognised as one of the most important of its era, rivalled only by the work of Cook. He remains a very well-known and respected figure in eighteenth century scientific exploration,” Dr Hitchcock said.
What is known is that La Pérouse’s ships Astrolabe and Boussole were wrecked in 1788 on Vanikoro, a small island in the Santa Cruz Group of the Solomon Islands.
The survivors made it to shore and spent several months constructing a small two-masted craft, using timber salvaged from the wreck of the Astrolabe. Once completed, they launched the vessel in a bid to return to France.
“What became of this ship and its crew, desperate to return to France, has been an ongoing mystery.”
While researching a project on the history of Torres Strait, Dr Hitchcock came across an article published in an 1818 Indian newspaper, The Madras Courier. He is confident the article reveals what became of the survivors.
The article tells the story of Shaik Jumaul, a castaway Indian seaman who survived the sinking of the merchant ship Morning Star which was wrecked off the coast of north Queensland in 1814. Jumaul made it to Murray Island, where he lived for four years, learning the language and culture of the Islanders. He was finally rescued by two merchant ships that passed through the area in 1818.
“Jumaul informed his rescuers that he had seen cutlasses and muskets on the islands which he recognised as not being of English make, as well as a compass and a gold watch,” he said.
“When he asked the Islanders where they obtained these things, they related how approximately thirty years earlier, a ship had been wrecked on the Great Barrier Reef to the east, in sight of the island.
“Boats with crew had come ashore, but in the fighting that followed, all were eventually killed, except a boy, who was saved and brought up as one of their own, later marrying a local woman.”
The La Pérouse expedition crew list includes a ship’s boy (mousse), François Mordelle, from the port town of Tréguier in Brittany, northwestern France. Dr Hitchcock wonders if Mordelle could be the last survivor of the La Pérouse expedition.
“The Indian newspaper article featuring the castaway’s account was later reproduced in several other newspapers and periodicals of the day, in Australia, Britain, France and other countries, and observers noted that this might refer to the La Pérouse expedition,” Dr Hitchcock said.
“Somehow, Shaik Jamaul’s story was subsequently largely forgotten.”
While a French book published in 2012 refers briefly to this newspaper article and discounts it as unreliable account, Dr Hitchcock believes otherwise.
“The chronology is spot on, for it was thirty years earlier, in late 1788 or early 1789, that the La Pérouse survivors left Vanikoro in their small vessel,” he said.
“Furthermore, historians and maritime archaeologists are not aware of any other European ship being in that region at that time. This means that this is the earliest known shipwreck in Torres Strait, and indeed, eastern Australia” he said.
“It could well be that the final phase of the La Pérouse expedition ended in tragedy in northern Australia. Future recovery of artefacts from the wreck site on the Great Barrier Reef – yet to be discovered – or the islands, will hopefully provide final confirmation.”
The Torres Strait region, which includes the northern part of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, is studded with reefs, rocks and sandbars, and has been described as a ‘graveyard of ships’. Over 120 vessels are known to have come to grief in its treacherous waters.
The program comes after a group of vegan students requested plant-based food on the menu
The new menu will include a veggie burger, among other meals
Vegan food has been added to the menu of seven Los Angeles Unified School District [LAUSD] schools.
One vegan meal choice will be featured on the high schools' menu, as part of a pilot program introduced by former Board President - and vegetarian - Steve Zimmer.
The program was instituted after a group of vegan students launched a campaign - the Earth Peace Healthy Freedom campaign - which urged the board to adopt a vegan menu for LAUSD schools.
The students' campaign was also supported by animal rights activist and vegan actor Pamela Anderson.
The pilot program, which was approved last May, is taking effect in one school in each of the seven school board districts.
The menu includes vegetarian chili with tortilla chips, a teriyaki veggie patty sandwich, a bean tamale, and a veggie burger.
The cost for the new plant-based dishes is the same as for other school meals. All lunches are free, or 40 cents for most LAUSD students; full-cost lunch is $3 to $3.50.
Considering that chicken nuggets and hamburgers cause cancer, this is a huge step in the right direction.
Is it any good though?
>Muh meat causes cancer
According to that list red meat has the same odds of causing cancer as working nights and drinking hot coffee or hot tea. Red meat isnt even a "known", just a "maybe" on that list since people who eat red meat overlap with people also get cancer in the west in the same way that people who eat red meat also get the flu or win scratch off lottery tickets or choose to buy a blue car. Maybe if you were talking specifically about overprocessed garbage like whackarnolds or cured meats, but just red meat is largely coincidental
If, as expected, President Trump ends the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, former President Obama will be speaking out. Mr. Trump is expected to announce his decision Tuesday.
Mr. Obama, who implemented DACA in 2012, plans to respond in posts on social media, Politico first reported, citing a source familiar with his plans.
Mr. Obama said as he left office he would comment on Mr. Trump's actions at "certain moments where I think our core values may be at stake."
mong the issues that would cause Mr. Obama to speak out, he strongly implied, was DACA or, as he put it, "efforts to round up kids who have grown up here, and for all practical purposes are American kids, and send them someplace else, when they love this country."
Mr. Obama's executive order defers deportations for people who came to the U.S. undocumented as children. Almost 800,000 people are in the U.S. now because of it.
Mr. Trump is expected to end the program by not accepting new permits and by allowing existing permits to expire with no opportunity to reapply, CBS News' Major Garrett reported last week, citing two Republican sources on Capitol Hill. Garrett says The message from the White House to Congress is that if lawmakers like DACA, they should write legislation for it, and the White House will consider it, likely favorably.

>Though converting CO2to CO is the simplest option, Kenis and others are looking transform CO2in one fell swoop to methane, formic acid, methanol, or other complex hydrocarbons with more energy—and higher value. But the reactions are more complicated, requiring not just a source of electrons but also protons. In order to run these reactions, researchers typically use an anode to split water molecules into protons, electrons, and oxygen, and then feed the protons and electrons to a cathode, where they react with CO2to make hydrocarbons. The water-splitting reaction also normally requires a heavy energy surcharge.
>Kenis reported that his group has created a CO2-splitting device in which they replaced the water at the anode with a liquid called glycerol, a waste product produced by the ton in biodiesel plants.

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Carbon dioxide (CO2) is society’s ultimate waste product, with billions of tons of the stuff injected into the air every year. But recycling it into valuable fuels and chemicals has always required too much energy to make financial sense. Now, researchers have found two efficient ways to convert CO2 into energy-rich byproducts, they reported last week here at a meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS). If they gain traction, they could help solve another pressing problem: Because both approaches require a steady stream of electrons from a source of electricity, they could siphon up all the “lost” solar and wind energy that can’t currently be stored in electric grids.
To recycle CO2, some researchers are mimicking photosynthesis, harnessing sunlight to convert the molecule into carbohydrates. But these solar fuel reactors often need to run at 1000°C temperatures. Other chemists favor a more traditional approach that would carry out similar reactions, but near room temperature in electrochemical cells that need electricity and special catalysts.
The first step in such an electrolytic approach is splitting CO2, a tough, stable molecule, into oxygen and carbon monoxide (CO), a slightly more energy-rich molecule that can form the basis for hydrocarbon fuels like methanol. That process starts with two catalyst-covered electrodes dunked in a beaker of water into which CO2 has been dissolved. The stream of electrons between these electrodes carry out separate reactions that split water and CO2, ultimately generating CO and more water.
Theoretically, it should take just 1.33 volts of electricity—less than that produced by a AA battery. But in practice, researchers must raise the voltage another volt or so to drive the reaction at a faster clip. This extra voltage, known as the overpotential, amounts to an energy surcharge that lowers the cell’s efficiency. Another problem is that most catalysts channel more of the available electrons into splitting water rather than converting CO2 to CO.
In 2011, researchers led by Richard Masel, a chemist and CEO of Dioxide Materials in Boca Raton, Florida, tested a setup with silver and iridium oxide catalysts and a liquid electrolyte to promote the CO2 to CO reaction. The electrolyte contained a compound called imidazolium that formed a protective layer around the silver-covered electrode. That blocked the water-splitting reaction and encouraged the catalyst to pass nearly all its electrons to converting CO2 instead. It also produced CO with an overpotential of just 0.17 volts. But ionic liquids can be expensive and corrosive. So Dioxide Materials set about making a durable and cheap plastic membrane that could serve the same function when laid atop a silver electrode.
>President Trump shocked Republicans on Wednesday by making a deal with Democrats to prevent a government shutdown, raise the debt ceiling and provide aid to communities hit by Hurricane Harvey — right in front of his own party’s leaders at the White House.
>The surprise deal left Republicans in despair and Democrats expressing glee.
>Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) characterized the deal as a “happy ending” that was for the “good of the nation.”
Trump acted just hours after Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) described a similar deal offered by Democrats as “ridiculous” and accused them of playing politics with a national disaster. That offer tied a three-month debt limit hike to Harvey aid but left out government funding.
>Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), the House Freedom Caucus’s chairman, offered a bit of cover for the president.
>“I think there were no conservative solutions offered to the president in relationship to addressing the debt ceiling,” Meadows told reporters just off the House floor.
>But he also suggested that Trump’s deal would not lead to a better outcome for Republicans in December, when Congress will be confronted with new deadlines to raise the debt ceiling and keep the government open.
>“If this plays into a long-term strategy that has conservative wins, I’m willing to reconsider. At this point, I don’t see that end-game being very obvious,” Meadows said.
Congress is now expected to approve a package as soon as this week that would include $7.85 billion targeted toward Hurricane Harvey and would raise the debt ceiling and fund the government through Dec. 15.
Trump agreed to the Pelosi-Schumer demands even as Ryan, McConnell and the president’s own Treasury secretary, Steve Mnuchin, called for a longer-term debt-limit hike.
“We essentially came to a deal, and I think the deal will be very good,” Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One as he traveled Wednesday afternoon to North Dakota, where he gave a speech touting tax reform.
Republicans initially pushed for an 18-month debt-limit extension, which would have kicked a new hike past the midterm elections.
After a brief standoff, congressional leaders thought there would be no deal. But then Trump interjected and told the leaders that they all should just agree to a three-month extension for the debt limit and a continuing resolution to fund the government.
The White House later hailed the decision as providing room for the president and Congress to work on tax reform.
“We believe that helping to clear the decks in September enables us to focus on tax reform for the American people,” White House legislative affairs director Marc Short told reporters on Air Force One. “We need to get the economy growing again, and that's what we need to focus on.”
