Hillary Claims 'Fox News Is Always Trying To Impeach Me'
Clinton, who holds no political office, made the remarks in a speech to The Wing -- a women-only co-working space in New York City -- where, despite saying she was optimistic and had faith in diversity and young people, she painted a grim picture of the future of the U.S. “I don’t think we’ve seen the bottom yet, I think it's very unfortunate to contemplate but more can happen that would put our rights at risk, our freedom at risk, our values, our fundamental views about what it means to be Americans,” she said.

Chines Cyber Spies Pose Challenge For Trump Administration
Chinese espionage activity is posing a challenge for the Trump administration as it seeks to crack down on China for allegedly unfair trade practices, including persistent cyber intrusions targeting U.S. businesses. While China has largely stopped hacking into U.S. companies to steal intellectual property in accordance with a 2015 Obama-era pact, security experts say Beijing’s spies have continued to break into U.S. networks to advance China’s economic and national security ambitions—testing the limits of the deal.

America Marks 50th Anniversary Of MLK's Assassination
Martin Luther King III said his dad would be "very excited" about nonviolence and student-led movements in the US. In a second tweet, he posted side-by-side images of his father marching and #studentsforparkland chalked on a sidewalk.

In Shift, WH Says US Mission In Syria 'Coming To A Rapid End'
The U.S. military mission in Syria "is coming to a rapid end," the White House said on Wednesday in an announcement that fell well short of President Donald Trump's comments last week that American troops would leave the country "very soon." The White House statement claimed that the Islamic State is "almost completely destroyed" but that the United States remains "committed to eliminating the small ISIS presence in Syria that our forces have not already eradicated.” It did not set a fixed date for a withdrawal of the estimated 2,000 American troops in the war-ravaged Arab country.

Trade war fears mount as China lists tariff targets, Trump doesn’t flinch
It was the second tit-for-tat exchange of tariff threats this week between the world’s two largest economies, and it sent the stock market into wild swings based on investors’ fears of a trade war. “This is not a trade war yet. It’s more like probing actions prior to a battle, with both sides gauging how far they can push the other without full-blown action,” said George Washington University economist Michael Moore. “But this is certainly how they might start.” The 106 products on China’s new tariffs list hit the U.S. and Mr. Trump where it hurts — in agriculture and other industries that do big business in China and dominate regions of the country that make up the president’s political base.

Black homeownership is as low as it was when housing discrimination was legal
That tweet took me to a blog post by Margery Austin Turner, senior vice president for program planning and management at the Urban Institute. She was putting into perspective how far we’ve come in housing discrimination in 50 years. “Until 1968, landlords could legally refuse to rent to African Americans and other people of color, and homeowners and real estate agents could refuse to show or sell them homes,” she writes. “Banks could deny mortgage loans based on a homebuyer’s race or a neighborhood’s racial mix. And white communities could pass zoning and land-use restrictions designed to keep people of color out. The federal Fair Housing Act declared these practices illegal, protecting people from discrimination when they are renting or buying a home or applying for a mortgage loan.” Washinton Post

Mueller III informed President Trump’s attorneys last month that he is continuing to investigate the president but does not consider him a criminal target at this point, according to three people familiar with the discussions. In private negotiations in early March about a possible presidential interview, Mueller described Trump as a subject of his investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

Britain Rejects Russian Demand For Role In Salisbury Posisoning Probe
Britain has rejected a Russian call for it to be involved in the investigation into the nerve agent attack in Salisbury. Addressing an extraordinary meeting of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague, UK ambassador John Foggo said that the demand was a sign that Moscow was “nervous” of what the probe will find. Mr Foggo accused Russia of showing “disdain” for the independence of the international body, which is conducting tests on samples of the nerve agent used in the March 4 attack on ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

Trump Would Not Be The First President To Send National Guard To Border
President Trump on Tuesday said he'd send the military to help guard the border until his long-promised border wall is built. The idea of deploying the National Guard to help enforcement along the border is nothing new. President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama both did it, in two operations that cost a total of more than $1.3 billion. Critics called those deployments costly and inefficient.  CNN

Putin On Skripal: We Don't Want Apologies, We Want Common Sense To Triumph
As the case for Moscow’s involvement in the poisoning of Sergei Skripal is weakened by new revelations, Russian President Vladimir Putin says he simply wants the diplomatic fallout over the incident to end. “We are not waiting for anything,” the Russian president said at a joint press conference with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts in Ankara, in response to a journalist who asked if Moscow was waiting for apologies from the UK for its accusations.

The dominating victory by a liberal candidate in Wisconsin's Supreme Court race emboldened Democrats deflated by years of defeats, pushing Republican Gov. Scott Walker to issue a series of warnings Wednesday about a possible "blue wave" in the red state.

Planned Parenthood President: Kushner And Ivanka Offered A 'Bribe' To Stop Abortions
Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards wrote in her new memoir that Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump offered her a deal that she said felt like a "bribe" to stop providing abortions, according to People magazine. Richards, who is stepping down from her post this year, wrote in "Make Trouble: Standing Up, Speaking Out, and Finding the Courage to Lead" that she met with President Donald Trump's daughter and son-in-law in January 2017. She said the White House power couple, who are now senior administration aides, offered an increase in Planned Parenthood's federal funding if the organization stopped providing abortions.  CNBC

Hillary Clinton addressed the ongoing #MeToo women’s rights movement Tuesday night, saying that she believed it still would have happened if she were elected president in 2016. “I believe that it was a wave that was building and building,” she said. “I think that my losing probably accelerated that wave, but the wave was coming.” Newsweek

Homeland Confirms Finding Surveillance Devices In Washington
An undisclosed number of surveillance devices known as “Stingrays”—used to track and intercept smartphone communications by posing as legitimate cell towers—are suspected to be in operation across Washington D.C., leading to fears foreign governments are using them to snoop on the capitol. Homeland Security revealed in a March 26 response to Democratic senator Ron Wyden that its National Protection and Programs Directorate [NPPD] had spotted “anomalous activity…that appears to be consistent with International Mobile Subscriber Identity [IMSI] catchers,”—the formal name for the technology.

Despite President Trump previously calling the US’ relationship with China “one-sided”, Trump once again insisted there is no impending trade war. Taking to Twitter this morning, the president tweeted: “We are not in a trade war with China, that war was lost many years ago by the foolish, or incompetent, people who represented the U.S. Now we have a Trade Deficit of $500 Billion a year, with Intellectual Property Theft of another $300 Billion. We cannot let this continue!” Gateway Pundit

Jorge Ramos Says Trump Wants To ‘Make America White Again'
“Can we just agree on this point?” Carlson said. “That a country that exterminated its black population, that is run exclusively by white people, that had a caste system based on blood until pretty recently, probably shouldn’t be calling us racist. Can we–let’s take that out of the equation. This is an economic argument about who benefits from migration. It’s not really about race…” “No, I don’t think so,” Ramos said. “No Tucker, I think we should criticize both countries. There’s discrimination in Mexico and there’s a lot of discrimination, we have to say that, but when we have a president like President Trump who’s made racist statements, who clearly wants to make America white again by…” Daily Caller
