Obama administration blasts new Israeli settlement projectThe Obama administration is in yet another public spat with Israel -- and is all but calling Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government a bunch of liars.

Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Wednesday that Israel’s announcement of a new settlement located deep in the West Bank goes against promises made by the Jewish state.

East Carolina University sells out its marching band under conservative pressure

East Carolina U buckles  to right wing pressureSomething truly courageous and wonderful happened this past weekend. Many members of the marching band of East Carolina University, including many white members, decided to take a knee to protest injustice in America during the “Star-Spangled Banner” before their most recent football game.

It was a silent, peaceful protest, but a particularly bold one considering ECU is located in the decidedly southern town of Greenville, North Carolina.

Hours later, Cecil Staton, the Chancellor of ECU, issued this extremely reasonable and supportive statement, backing the band, “While we acknowledge and understand the disappointment felt by many Pirate fans in response to the events at the beginning of today’s football game, we urge all Pirate students, supporters and participants to act with respect for each other’s views."

Mike Pence To America: Trump Never Said Those Things He Said

Mike penceWhen Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), Hillary Clinton’s running mate, accused Trump of praising Russian president Vladimir Putin as a “great leader,” Pence denied it and called Putin a “small and bullying leader.” But Trump has repeatedly praised Putin.
