Trump quotes Omar as saying: ‘‘You don’t say ‘America’ with this intensity. You say ‘al-Qaida,’ it makes you proud. Al-Qaida makes you proud. You don’t speak that way about America.’’ THE FACTS: This is not at all what the Minnesota Democrat said. She did not voice pride in the terrorist group. Trump is referring to an interview Omar gave in 2013. In it, she talked about studying terrorism history or theory under a professor who dramatically pronounced the names of terrorist groups, as if to emphasize their evil nature. ‘‘The thing that was interesting in the class was every time the professor said ‘al-Qaida,’ he sort of like — his shoulders went up’’ and he used a menacing, intense tone, she said. Her point was that the professor was subtly rousing suspicions of Muslims with his theatrical presentation, while pronouncing ‘‘America’’ without the intensity … [Read more...] about Fact check: Trump’s North Carolina rally

Kristen Jordan Shamus Detroit Free Press Published 1:38 PM EDT Mar 26, 2019 You've heard of the gender wage gap, but how about a car insurance premium gender gap? It turns out, Michigan's is a doozy. Women in Michigan paid an average of $79 more per year than male drivers for the same car insurance coverage in 2018 — the second-biggest gender gap in auto insurance costs nationally. That is just one finding in a new report by The Zebra, an online auto insurance comparison pricing company that analyzed gender differences in rates in Michigan and around the country.

America’s foremost attorney for far-right extremists wanted “a little gravy,” then lied to cover it up. That’s just part of his twisted journey through a lax legal system. By Luke O'Brien 12/27/2018 03:09 pm ET Updated 2 minutes ago One morning this June, a group of lawyers filed into the office of the State Bar of Nevada and closed the door. It was summer in Las Vegas, the morning temperature already nearing 100 degrees, but inside the low-slung tan building, the lawyers had a chilly question to address: what to do about one of their own. Marc Randazza had been a problem for years. Randazza, who represents conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and many other far-right extremists, had long relied on lawyer buddies to pump his public image. By their telling and his own, Randazza was a First Amendment “badass.” But he was a combative badass, even vicious, and he’d left a trail of bad blood and trampled ethics behind him. Randazza had … [Read more...] about Alex Jones’ Lawyer Violated Legal Ethics By Soliciting Porn Bribes. Just How Dirty Is Marc Randazza?
