Donald Trump Reportedly Using The Justice Department To Go After Affirmative Action!

no title

Looks like the civil rights division of the Justice Department is taking a new stance under the leadership of Donald Trump and his Attorney General (for the moment) Jeff Sessions.

Instead of protecting the most oppressed minority groups, they’re going to focus on all that discrimination against white people.

According to a report in The New York Times, an internal document was leaked that reveals the department is trying to find which of its lawyers are up for “investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions.”

But this apparently isn’t to stop schools from discriminating against minority applicants; it’s to stop affirmative action from giving an edge to black and Latino students — because they believe it’s discriminating against white applicants.

Eesh.

​The Supreme Court has previously ruled that race can be taken into account because of the educational benefits of a diverse student body, so long as there are no racial quotas.

But critics say colleges are using that to reject students because they’re white; there are still several pending lawsuits against major universities by white students claiming they were discriminated against.

The project to take on those cases will reportedly be run out of the front office of the Justice Department rather than the Educational Opportunities Section which usually works on anything related to colleges and universities. In other words, it’ll be done by Trump appointees rather than career civil servants who actually know what they’re doing and care about civil rights.

THIS Couple Literally Got Divorced Because Of Donald Trump!

no title

More proof that Donald Trump is RUINING lives!

Dave and Lynn Aronberg once had a fairytale romance. The Palm Beach County State Attorney and the former Miami Dolphins cheerleader were happily married and lived a fabulous life in Florida…

Then, Trump became President, and their once-blissful love affair came to a crashing halt!

Prior to the businessman becoming the 45th President of the United States, the Republican and her now-ex Democrat husband were frequent guests at Trump’s resort Mar-a-Lago because of Dave’s job. Lynn told Inside Edition:

“We spent New Year’s with Trump at Mar-a-Lago… We were right at his table, right next to him. We were there every weekend.”

Lynn was such a diehard Trump supporter, she even named her dog Ivanka! However, her obsession soon became too much for her partner.

“He was like, ‘I need you to take all your Trump photos off your Facebook page,’ and what I did was — and I realize this was rebellious — I made Trump my profile picture. I’m like, ‘You can’t tell me what to do.'”

Although she was “elated” and “so happy” that Donnie eventually beat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, the political drama took a toll on her marriage, and Dave filed for divorce a month after the inauguration.

When asked if she flat out chose Trump over her husband, she enthusiastically responded:

“Oh yeah!”

Watch out, Melania Trump! This woman is gunning for your spot!

Blake Lively

Love wins!

Yesterday, queen Blake Lively was one of the many celebrities to speak out against Donald Trump‘s impulsive ban on transgender soldiers from the military. While his exact motivations are unclear, one thing is for sure… hate and discrimination will NEVER win.

The 29-year-old personally taught one of her ex-followers that lesson on Thursday after a rude comment inspired her to respond!

Her support of the transgender community disgruntled one of her fans, who commented:

“You catching that unfollow for this.”

Blake — who has 16.6 MILLION followers on Instagram alone — didn’t let it bother her, as she responded with class, saying:

“I choose love. That’s the only thing that we all have. It is peace. It is happiness. Not follows or unfollows. I wish happiness for you. And I hope you find that your heart has a bigger capacity than you give it credit for. I know it does.”

Bless your heart, troll.

Rolling Stone Wants To Know — Why Can’t Justin Trudeau Be Our President??

no title

We need someone like Justin Trudeau more than ever…

The Canadian Prime Minister covers Rolling Stone‘s August issue where the magazine poses the question on everyone’s mind: “Why can’t he be our President?”

(Besides the obvious answer of Trudeau being born in Canada and all.)

In their profile, the publication highlights his many accomplishments including cutting taxes on the middle class, having a diverse Cabinet, and his country’s dropping unemployment rate.

It’s easy to see the vast differences between Trudeau and Donald Trump. Writer Stephen Rodrick emphasizes:

“Trump is defunding Planned Parenthood. Trudeau is firmly pro-choice; abortions are provided as part of Canada’s universal health care… Meanwhile, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is trying to roll back America’s weed laws to Reefer Madness days. Over the border, Trudeau, who admits he smoked pot after being elected to Parliament, campaigned on legalizing it across Canada. Trump ditched the Paris environmental accord. Trudeau is urging American cities and states to work with their northern neighbors to cut emissions. The opioid crisis that Trudeau spoke of in his press conference? His government is fast-tracking safe-usage areas to cut down on overdoses, while America’s opioid-related deaths have reached epidemic levels.”

In the interview, the 45-year-old speaks passionately about his country, and how he believes every single person — no matter their occupation — has “an extraordinary, powerful impact” wherever they are.

“A Canadian on the ground in different parts of the world, whether they’re a diplomat, an aid worker or a soldier, has an extraordinary, powerful impact… I mean, the image of Canada, the way people look at you as ‘Oh, you’re Canadian’ – subtext ‘not American’ – but you’re here to help, you’re not here for oil, you’re not here to tell us how to run our country.”‘

While it would be easy to attack Trump for his destructive policies/tweets, Trudeau resists the urge. Instead, he wants to foster their “constructive relationship” to further Canada’s interests and needs.

“Obviously, I disagree [with Trump] on a whole bunch, but Canadians expect me to accomplish two things at the same time, which is emphasize where we disagree and stand up firmly for Canadian interests… But we also have a constructive working relationship, and me going out of my way to insult the guy or overreact or jump at everything he says [that] we might disagree with is not having a constructive relationship.”

As Rodrick writes, “Justin Trudeau is trying to Make Canada Great Again,” he may — in the process — be making the world great again as well.

Donald Trump Says Transgender People Will No Longer Be Allowed To Serve In The Military

<a href=

Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse.

On Wednesday morning, Donald Trump announced his decision to take a million steps back and implement a sweeping ban on transgender people from serving in the military.

This comes after his mission to remove protections for transgender students earlier this year. A real “ally” huh, Caitlyn Jenner???

We’re pretty sure the thousands and thousands of transgender soldiers who serve our country proudly cause way less “disruption” and “cost” than you do, Drumpf.

Get Ready For Senator Kid Rock — Political Experts Are Saying He Could Actually Win…

no title

What. The. Fuck.

Kid Rock has been teasing a Senate seat run in his home state of Michigan, and while the jury is still out on whether he’s actually going to do it — smart money says this is just a ploy for him to drum up publicity for an upcoming music tour — experts are starting to weigh in on Kid Rock’s chances.

And the verdict?

Way fuckin’ better than you can imagine.

Related: Get More News About Michigan’s Future Senator Here

Kid Rock, born Robert Ritchie, is unbelievably popular in Michigan, and that combined with what would no doubt be a non-traditional campaign on his end could push him to at least win the Republican nomination to run for Senate there in 2018.

There’s a new report out in Politico today all about Kid Rock’s chances for a Senate seat that has been making the rounds, and there’s some really interesting stuff in it.

Take, for example, Republican political consultant Dennis Lennox, who believes Kid Rock has already locked up the Republican nomination to run — if he wants it:

“Presuming Kid Rock doesn’t get caught in bed with a little boy, or beat up a woman between now and August 2018, he’s going to win the nomination if he gets in. I think there’s no question about that. I think he’s the prohibitive favorite if he gets in.”

Another famous entertainer-turned-politician, Donald Trump, at least had to run through more than a dozen other GOP candidates before locking up the nomination for President last year, but Kid Rock? Sounds like it’d be a piece of cake.

Furthermore, his connection to Michigan — and specifically Detroit — make Kid Rock a very serious political foe to current Senator (and Democrat) Debbie Stabenow.

Saul Anuzis, the former chairman of the Michigan Republican Party, said:

“The fact that he’s non-traditional is appealing to a lot of people. Obviously it scares others who want someone more predictable. But if you’re going to beat an entrenched candidate like Debbie Stabenow in a purple state, you need to do something different. He’s well-liked in Michigan. He’s a hometown darling. He’s got deep connections to Detroit. He’s done a lot throughout the state. Anybody who’s writing him off is making a mistake.”

Crazy!!!

The whole report is pretty interesting — you can read it HERE.
