We're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore. That's right, all of us are now Howard Beale, the out-of-control newscaster from the 1976 classic movie "Network. " Both Republicans and Democrats in New Hampshire confirmed the mood of the country: anger, disgust, frustration. Fed up with Washington gridlock, with leaders continually kicking tough problems down the road, voters have made political neophyte Donald Trump and Vermont firebrand Bernie Sanders the new presidential front-runners. Below you will find hour-by-hour reports and analysis from Tuesday's "first in the nation" primary. >> Analysis: New Hampshire primary winners and losers. Wow, wow, wow," said Donald Trump as he took the podium at his campaign headquarters in New Hampshire. But Trump rode right-leaning outrage to victory in the "first in the nation" primary on Tuesday, confirming his front-runner status a week after finishing in second place in the Iowa Caucus. He won about 34 percent of the Republican vote in the Granite State, doubling the results of second-place finisher John Kasich. " filling the room, Trump declared that he would "make America great again" by cutting "great trade deals," rebuilding the military and securing the borders.
Rookie police officer Peter Liang shot and killed Gurley, who was unarmed, in a Brooklyn stairwell back in 2014. If found guilty, 28-year-old Liang could face up to 15 years behind bars. Supreme Court Blocks President Obama’s Climate Change Plan. After proposing that federal funds be allocated towards overcoming climate change, President Obama ’s plan has been denied by the Supreme Court. The court’s members, who lean more towards the conservative side, halted the “Clean Power Plan,” which was designed to decrease pollution from power plants. “This stay will remain in place until the challenges have made their way through the Supreme Court, by which time Obama will likely have left office,” said Curt Levey, the executive director of the conservative FreedomWorks Foundation. “Thus, the stay may well be a fatal blow to the EPA’s attempt to dramatically expand its power and to the administration’s attempt to shove its climate change agenda down the throats of the American people. ” The Environmental Protection Agency has to hold back from enforcing the “Clean Power Plan” until the U. S. Court of Appeals for the D. C. Circuit examines a.
The folks at 24/7 Wall Street examined attendance figures for the last decade for MLB, NFL, NBA and NHL teams that stayed in the same building in the same market. Two Kroenke-owned teams, the Denver Nuggets (10th) and the Rams (14th) made the list of the biggest fan losers. It's no wonder Kroenke lands on "NFL's Worst Owners" lists. The Big Lead ranked him No. 3, behind only Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and Redskins owner Danny Snyder. Stan Kroenke was born in Missouri, has three degrees from the University of Missouri and loved the state so much that he helped former owner Georgia Frontiere move a football team to St. Louis from Los Angeles. Kroenke made his fortune the old-fashioned way: he married into it. His wife is Ann Walton Kroenke , the daughter of Walmart co-founder James “Bud” Walton. So Kroenke is sitting on an enormous pile of cash but is moving the Rams to Los Angeles because he wants even more. Since Kroenke took over as the owner of the Rams in 2010, the team has gone 36-59 and been hamstrung by poor coaching and mismanagement.
