Manchester United Cruise Past West Ham: 4-1

Manchester United cruise past West Ham to move one step from Wembley with resurgent Martial and Ibrahimovic both netting twice

Tony Martial scored. And then Tony Martial scored again. And now Manchester United are three games from the first trophy of the Jose Mourinho era. With Liverpool and Southampton still in the mix it is not going to be easy, but Mourinho has always set store in laying down a marker by winning the first real trophy of the season and, wherever he was in the stadium, he will have been mightily pleased by this result, and this performance. 

Pleased by Martial, too. He seemed to suggest a week ago that the striker was running out of time to impress, with Old Trafford’s songs about the prolific nature of his scoring feats – and the value he represented at £50m – seeming increasingly optimistic.

South African Pastor Sprays Insecticide On Congregants 'To Heal Them'

Johannesburg (CNN)Images of a South African Pastor spraying insecticide into the faces of his congregants are circulating on social media.

Lethebo Rabalago, of the Mount Zion General Assembly (MZGA), in Limpopo, has openly posted photographs on his Facebook page of him spraying congregants with Doom Super Multi Insect Killer to cure various ailments.

My nose was blocked since last week, but after the prophet sprayed me with Doom I feel coming out of my nose. I thank God for healing me."

Silicon Valley Wants To Break Away As California Nation.

Hyperloop One co-founder Shervin Pishevar proposed that California should secede from the United States to escape a Trump presidency
Pishevar tweeted that if Trump won, he would be 'announcing and funding a legitimate campaign for California to become its own nation'
He said he would call the potential sovereign body 'New California' and labeled it as the 'most patriotic thing' he could do

Other Silicon Valley investors support him like Cheezburger founder Ben Huh, Design, Inc. CEO Marc Hemeon and Path founder David Morin
The Constitution includes procedures as to how a new state can enter the union, but it does not say how one can exit
No state has ever seceded from the union in American history

Help Hillary Clinton Wins

Hillary Clinton supporters aren’t ready to give up hope. A petition created Wednesday wants the Electoral College to vote for the Democratic candidate instead of President-elect Donald Trump.

“On Dec. 19, the electors of the Electoral College will cast their ballots. If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win,” the petition reads. “However, they can vote for Hillary Clinton if they choose. Even in states where that is not allowed, their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine, which we can be sure Clinton supporters will be glad to pay!”

The petition doesn’t want the electors to vote for the New York businessman. “Mr. Trump is unfit to serve,” the petition says. “His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the republic.” 

The petition adds Clinton should be president because she won the popular vote. “There is no reason Trump should be president,” it says. “She won the popular vote.” The latest poll showed Clinton had 400,000 more votes than Trump, according to  CBS News,  CNN and  NBC News.

'Kill the police!' Clinton and Trump supporters clash on the streets of Indianapolis and hurl bottles and rocks at cops, who blame 'out of town instigators' on another day of widespread demonstrations

Anti-Donald Trump protesters have shouted, 'kill the police' at officers as they hurled rocks and bottles at cops during demonstrations (middle inset) across the country against the President-elect. At least seven people were arrested in Indianapolis on Saturday night, with more than 500 protesters clashing with police in the city. The demonstration - held in Vice President-elect Mike Pence's state - was 'mostly peaceful' before 'police used what appeared to be a pepper gun on some protesters walking in the street', according to local reports. However, it then took a turn for the worse, and at least seven were arrested (middle). 

In Portland, police said 19 protesters were arrested in the city throughout the night as protests continued for another night. There were also protests in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Kansas City, Chicago and Washington DC. However, Trump fans began to push back against the protests, with some hitting the streets as well. One man drove a military-style truck towards protesters in Indianapolis (top left), another attempted to speak with protesters (right), and one woman drove the streets in her car waving a Trump sign (bottom left).
