John Lewis: I don’t See Trump ‘As A Legitimate President’





Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., said the Russian government’s apparent interference with the U.S. election delegitimizes Donald Trump’s victory.
The civil rights leader told “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd that he believes in forgiveness and working with others, but he said it would be exceptionally hard for him to forge a relationship with President-elect Trump.
“It’s going to be very difficult. I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president,” he said in a portion of the interview, published Friday.

Agricultural Bank Of China Fined $215M For Falsifying Transaction Documents






Agricultural Bank of China has agreed to pay a $215 million penalty for falsifying transaction documents involving China & Russia and trying to cover up US dollar trades with sanctioned Middle East Countries.

The New York State's Department of Financial Services (DFS) said that officials of the Chinese bank's New York branch were found to have masked U.S. dollar transactions that would have revealed violations of trade sanctions and money laundering laws. The Bank officials also silenced a whistle-blower who attempted to carry out internal investigations.   That action led to the officer's resignation in 2015.

DFS further discovered that certain Invoices involving China and Russia appeared to have been falsified. Other documents suggested that U.S. dollar trades were made with Iranian counterparties, and included information indicating dollar transactions made for the benefit of a sanctioned Iranian party.  The DFS also accused the Chinese bank of conducting dollar transactions involving an Afghan Bank client associated with narcotics traffickers and illicit cash flows.

Washington Protesters Vow To Fight For Civil Rights Under Trump





WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. civil rights activists vowed on Saturday to defend hard-fought gains in voting rights and criminal justice during the presidency of Donald Trump, kicking off a week of protests ahead of the Republican's inauguration.

About 2,000 mostly black protesters ignored steady rain to march and rally near Washington's Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, as speakers urged them to fight for minority rights and President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law, which Trump has vowed to dismantle.

The Rev. Al Sharpton, the rally's organizer and a veteran civil rights leader, said Democrats in Congress needed to be sent a simple message: "Get some backbone."

LOVERS STABBED TO DEATH AFTER WORK







Two shop workers who were in a relationship were stabbed to death in one of Britain's busiest shopping streets as they left a night shift this morning.
Matalan employees Zoe Morgan, a 21-year-old window dresser, and shop assistant Lee Simmons, 34, were attacked and killed as they left the store in Cardiff's Queen Street.
A colleague said: 'This is a terrible tragedy. They had only started seeing each other and made a lovely couple. We are all in bits.'
The farmhouse home of 20-year-old hotel worker Andrew Saunders was today searched by police investigating the deaths.

Sales assistant Lee and fashion graduate Zoe met while working shifts together - and he dubbed her his 'Tinkerbell'.
But they pair were attacked at 5.50am as they left the store, which is Matalan's first high street branch in Britain.
Police officers flooded Cardiff's main Queen Street at around 6am after the couple were found dead outside high street stores Boots and Matalan.

These Are 10 Signs You’re Bad In Bed And Don’t Even Know It… Take Correction







Just because you think you’re a s*x machine and women say you’ve given them great orgasms, doesn’t mean it’s true.
Every man worth his salt wants to be a stud in the sack. And if you’re reading this article, you’ve already taken a step in the right direction toward making sure your partner is satisfied.

1. You skip foreplay

The problem: You come home after thinking about s*x all day and try to stick your penis in her right away. She, on the other hand, has not been thinking about s*x. She’s been thinking about work, that squabble with her best friend, and what she’s making for dinner. She’s not warmed up, therefore she’s not going to enjoy it.

Fix it: “Foreplay, foreplay, foreplay—I can’t say it enough!” Morse says. You may be ready to go the second you get home, but you have to remember, sex is mostly mental for women. They have to be warmed up, physically and mentally. “Most women not only enjoy foreplay, but we need it in order to get aroused before actual intercourse,” Morse says. Foreplay can even start hours before you’re through the door. Send her a text about how much you can’t wait to see her or how beautiful she looked this morning. Then when you get home kiss and caress her before you start taking her clothes off. Foreplay isn’t a suggestion; it’s a requirement for most women.

Russian Ambassador To Turkey Shot Dead In Ankara Art Gallery






 The Russian ambassador to Turkey has been shot dead by a police officer who shouted “Don’t forget Aleppo” as he pulled the trigger.


The chilling attack on Monday evening, which was captured on video, appeared to be a backlash against Russian military involvement in the Syrian civil war.

Andrei Karlov was attacked at the opening of an art exhibition in Ankara by a man believed to be an off-duty Turkish police officer. Karlov was several minutes into a speech when he was shot. Footage of the attack showed a man dressed in a suit and tie standing calmly behind the ambassador. He then pulled out a gun, shouted “Allahu Akbar” and fired at least eight shots.

EVERTON 2-1 ARSENAL









EVERTON 2-1 ARSENAL - DOMINIC KING AT GOODISON PARK: All had been well in Arsene Wenger’s world. Arsenal were nicely positioned in second, players in good form and offered a chance to make a mark as this title race starts to take shape. Beat out of form Everton and things would have ticked along smoothly. By the time he left Goodison, Wenger was an open book once again. He bemoaned a referee’s decision but really he should be asking questions of his own team. This was careless, reckless almost. This defeat may prove so costly in the final reckoning.

Trump Is The New JFK Says Bill Gates




Bill Gates suggested Tuesday that there was a bit in common between how President-elect Donald Trump and President John F. Kennedy communicated with the American people.

The billionaire philanthropist, who recently had a phone conversation with Trump to discuss clean energy and climate change, told CNBC that "there can be a very upbeat message" about a Trump administration.

"You know, a lot of his message has been about things where he sees things not as good as he'd like," he said.

The Microsoft cofounder and Forbes-designated richest person in the world continued: "But in the same way that President Kennedy talked about the space mission and got the country behind that — I think that whether it's education or stopping epidemics, other health breakthroughs, finishing polio, and in this energy space — there can be a very upbeat message that his administration is going to organize things, get rid of regulation barriers, and have American leadership through innovation be on of the things that he gets behind."
