MIA: Hillary Clinton. MIA on January 21: Barack Obama :)

She was the first Presidential candidate in modern history who did not call the victor and offer him some kind of belated congratulations. The word was that she was drunk and couldn’t talk. I’ll accept that. I’ll also accept the fact that she is an arrogant woman who was convinced she was going to win, and she had her 69-year-old head handed to her. I don’t really care why she didn’t call Trump. She is a sore loser. Most of all, she is a loser. She was discarded onto the ash heap of history on November 9. The MSM have no further use for her. She is no longer on anyone’s radar.

After Dakota Access Victory, Protesters Take Aim At Louisiana Pipeline

Environmentalist groups are mobilizing against the Bayou Bridge pipeline in the swamps of southern Louisiana, seeking to repeat the success at Standing Rock, North Dakota. They are taking on the same company that is behind the Dakota Access Pipeline.

The extension, proposed in 2015, would link up the existing portion of the Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL) to refineries on the Gulf coast of Texas. If approved, it would run 176 miles across the Atchafalaya Basin, the largest natural swamp in the US.

The 70-nation-strong meeting was dubbed by many as “useless” and ignored by most main players in the conflict, but nothing seemed to cause more controversy than the UK’s claim that the conference could make the Palestinian camp more difficult to work with.

To say to you that you're not treating His children right." - On this Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I thought it would be interesting to revisit some of the last words he spoke. The day before he died, April 3, 1968, Martin Luther King called for a boycott of several products in Memphis; Coca-Cola & Wonder bread among them. You can listen to the 5-minute portion of his speech here.
