    I heard today that all Cablers covered Trump.
    He was also quickly interviewed by George S., Billo O’Rielly, etc.
    Isn’t it twisted that these same DC/NY Pundits were mocking Trump on Twitter while major National News Papers, Nightly News and just about every Website quickly did top pieces or had their pages with links and stories of Trump.
    In_deed, USA has a worthless New Media Apparatus.

    The Palestinian unity government will resign, President Mahmoud Abbas has announced.

    He told his Fatah faction the cabinet had to be dissolved because its Hamas rivals would not allow it to operate in Gaza, where Hamas is in control.

    Some reports suggest that the government would step down within hours.

    The cabinet was sworn in last June to try to end a major rift between Fatah, which governs the West Bank, and Hamas.

    This is the worst officiated NBA Finals I’ve witnessed in my time on earth. The NBA should be ashamed of themselves…congrats Warriors…Lebron gave it a valiant effort, but he was playing 1 against 6 the entire series.

      I’m happy the Warriors won but what do you mean about the NBA refs?

      • June 17, 2015 at 12:04 am

        The officiating was god awful. I’ve never seen so many missed calls or reversals due to originally making the wrong call and the inconsistency from one game to another was ridiculous. These are the Finals…supposed to be the premiere officials in the entire league and I’ve seen better officiating from my AAU days back in high school. Just an unacceptable the level of gross incompetence demonstrated throughout.

  23. June 16, 2015 at 11:55 pm

    It was a one man show from the beginning….

    As long as Kevin Love opts back in for a 1-yr contract:

      Mark Halperin isn’t worth B.S., come on do we really expect Halperin to act like her has any class? This is the thing that call the President that name. How about giving Mark Halperin a F-. He isn’t worth that stinking smelly B.S.

    OK, congrats again GS! …..good night, TOD.

  28. June 17, 2015 at 12:15 am

    If you were not going to give it to Lebron, then Iggy was the correct choice:

  29. June 17, 2015 at 12:17 am

    With Love and Irving the Cavs would have been a better tougher team.

  30. June 17, 2015 at 12:21 am

    G.O.A.T……….ok, definitely good night:

    Just returned from watching the game at a sports bar. Seriously. I am over the moon! The best team in the world vs. the best player in the world and the best team won! It’s been a long drought, but it’s over now! Congratulations Warriors! Dub Nation!

        My tribute to the Statue of Liberty – “A mighty woman with a torch” – is done for the night with this! A tribute to a different time, for sure. Goodnight, TODville.

        Excerpt from an article about the 125th anniversary of the gift:

        “Barry Moreno, a historian of the statue for the National Park Service, recalled that it ‘was never built for immigrants. It was,’ he recalled, ‘built to pay tribute to the United States of America, the Declaration of Independence, American democracy, and democracy throughout the world. It honored the end of slavery, honored the end of all sorts of tyranny and also friendship between France and America.’”

        ***

        “The New Colossus” is a sonnet by American poet Emma Lazarus (1849–1887), written in 1883. In 1903, the poem was engraved on a bronze plaque and mounted inside the lower level of the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty.

        Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
        With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
        Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
        A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
        Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
        Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
        Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
        The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

        “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
        With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
        Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
        The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
        Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
        I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

    Excited that Warriors won after 40 years. Unlike Cavaliers, it was a team effort. Giants and Warriors. Bay Area celebrates.

    Posted on FB on Official page of the British Monarchy.
    Prince Harry was very pleased to host The First Lady of the United States Mrs Michelle Obama for tea at Kensington Palace this morning. They discussed their shared interest in support for veterans and their families. His Royal Highness was also interested to hear from the First Lady about the β€ͺ#β€ŽLetGirlsLearn‬ initiative to further adolescent girls’ education around the world, which is the focus of her visit to the UK.
    Prince Harry was also delighted to meet Malia and Sasha Obama and The First Lady’s mother Mrs Marian Robinson. Prince William and Harry are also promoting education.
