WHY DO THEY BULLY?
Bullying is not okay and my heart breaks for Keaton Jones from Tennessee. A message to Keaton, stay strong and don’t let these bastards keep you down. Keaton’s mom, Kimberly Jones said in a Facebook post Friday she had just picked up her son, Keaton, from school because he was too afraid to go to lunch. SAD! Before zero tolerance in schools, I can remember a time and place in a time long ago when one used to be able to defend oneself against bullying with a knuckle sandwich. Don’t you remember that to LB? I can’t say I understand the go fund me page for Keaton. Giving money is not going to stop bullying.
A Tennessee woman’s video of her son’s tearful recounting of being bullied at middle school has prompted a wave of support from athletes and entertainers. One star is even going as far as to reward the young boy in a big way.
The video of Keaton had more than 18 million views as of Sunday, and a crowdsourcing page for his future education has raised more than $29,000.
The post has gone so viral that celebrities far and wide are taking notice and offering their support to young Keaton. However, one star is going above and beyond to reward the young boy for his persevearance. Chris Evans, who will reprise his role as Captain America in the upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War,” took to Twitter to not only share his support, but to invite the young boy to Los Angeles for the film’s premiere.
“Stay strong, Keaton. Don’t let them make you turn cold. I promise it gets better,” the star wrote. “While those punks at your school are deciding what kind of people they want to be in this world, how would you and your mom like to come to the Avengers premiere in LA next year?”
Explosion at New York’s Port Authority near Time Square … (UPDATE: Pipe Bomb Suspected)(UPDATE: Suspect in Custody)(UPDATE: ISIS Inspired) VIDEO of actual Explosion
EXPLOSION AT PORT AUTHORITY IN NYC …
It is being reported that there has been a possible terror attack and explosion at NYC’s Port Authority at approximately 7:30 am ET. Law enforcement officials have stated that the explosion was believed to be an “intentional act.” The suspect was carrying some sort of pipe bomb or other type of improvised explosive device that either went off prematurely or only partially detonated. The blast went off in an underground subway passage just 200 feet from the terminal at West 42nd St. and Eighth Ave.
There are reports of a possible terror attack in New York City, after an explosion was felt Monday morning in a Subway station near Times Square.
Commuters said they felt a blast in the Subway tunnels underneath the Port Authority Bus Terminal around 7:30am. The bus terminal is a major transit hub for people commuting to and from New Jersey by bus, and is located just a block from Times Square.
UPDATE I: Terror suspect in Custody.
One person is in custody after an improvised pipe bomb exploded during the morning rush Monday near the Port Authority Bus Terminal.
The device was apparently being carried by a suspect when it exploded prematurely. That suspect was injured and is in custody.
The suspect has only been identified as a man in his 20s, possibly from Brooklyn, CBS2’s Reena Roy reported.
Sources said the suspect had a second device on him, CBS2 reported. The suspect apparently suffered a laceration to his thigh in the blast.
At the 15 second mark of Video below can see when the detonation actually took place
UPDATE II: ISIS Inspired terror attack.
Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton, speaking on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” said preliminary information suggests the man is in his 20s, possibly from Bangladesh, “who supposedly was setting the device off in the name of ISIS, so definitely a terrorist attack, definitely intended.”
The man has been in the country for about seven years, Bratton said.
A TALE OF TWO ECONOMIES …
The comparison of the Donald Trump and Barack Obama economies can best be describes like a Tale of Two Cities, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” Guess which one was which? Just look at the color codes numbers below that compare November of 2016 under Obama and November of 2017 under President Donald Trump. Even partisan Democrats can compare these numbers. Ever wonder why the liberal, bias media does not want to tout Trump’s accomplishments and continuously report on a Russian collusion story that does not exist? Because Americans are back to work, including Blacks and Hispanics. Under Obama in Nov. 2016. Black unemployment was at 8.1% and for Hispanics 5.7%. However, under Trump in Nov. 2017, Black unemployment is down to 7.3% and Hispanics at 4.1%. In Nov. 2017, manufacturing unemployment rate fell to a record low under Trump. The manufacturing sector added 31,000 jobs, while its unemployment rate fell to a record-low 2.6%. Under Obama, he claimed the manufacturing jobs were gone for good and many were lost on his watch.
For Barack Obama, he was the Food Stamp president. Donald Trump is the economic recovery president. Add the Stock market president too. The DOW is currently at 24,329.16. Remember when the foolish LEFT said on election night that the Stock market was going to crash because of a Trump election? How did that work out?

- Nonfarm payrolls grew by 228,000 in November and the unemployment rate held steady at 4.1 percent. Economists expected 200,000 new jobs and an unchanged headline rate.
- Wage growth again disappointed, with average hourly earnings up just 2.5 percent annualized, compared with estimates of 2.7 percent.
- Investors still expect the Fed to hike interest rates at its meeting next week.
Nonfarm payrolls rose by 228,000 in November while the unemployment rate held steady at 4.1 percent as the U.S. economy continues to hum along, the Labor Department reported Friday.
Economists surveyed by Reuters had expected nonfarm payrolls to grow by 200,000.
“The November employment data is largely as expected. For an expansion that began in mid-2009, no negative surprises are welcome,” said Mark Hamrick, senior economic analyst at Bankrate.com. “The lingering impacts of recent hurricanes and flooding have reverted back to relative calm in the statistics, meaning that this is a ‘cleaner’ number.”
The biggest November job gains came in professional and business services [46,000], manufacturing [31,000] and health care [30,000]. In total, goods-producing occupations rose by 62,000. Construction saw a gain of 24,000, almost all of which were specialty trade contracts, a profession that has added 132,000 jobs over the past year.
Heading into the holiday season, retail jobs also grew by 18,7000.
So Much for Credibility … Beverly Young Nelson, Roy Moore Accuser Now Says She Added Notes Below Moore’s Yearbook Signature
HMM, WONDER WHY SHE DIDN’T ADMIT THIS WHILE MAKING HER FIRST ACCUSATION … ROY MOORE ACCUSER’S CREDIBILITY IS SHREDDED.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME … Beverly Young Nelson, a woman who has accused Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore of sexual misconduct and claims she is sickened by Moore’s lies now says she made her own notes below a yearbook signature she claims was made by Moore. WHAT?!? Who is the liar? So first Nelson says Moore signed the year book and used it as proof that she knew Moore, now says she made additions to the year book, so called notes. Why in the hell would she have added notes? A better question is why she didn’t admit that when she first made the accusations against Moore and why her attorney, Gloria Allred, didn’t do the same. During the interview with ABC News Nelson did not clarify what notes she made in the yearbook or when she made them. Why not. wouldn’t that have been easy to do and a rather easy follow up question by ABC? Unless you don’t want to know. Roy Moore tweeted Friday, “Now she herself admits to lying.”
So just how much did she alter in the year book and why? Maybe this woman needs a lie detector test? And why didn’t she state this at the outset? Because she never thought anyone would question her accusations, that’s why. The “DA” was not signed by Moore, he was not the DA at the time this was supposed to have taken place. Those were the initials of his assistant when they signed his signature for Moore. But how would Beverly Young Nelson have ever known that? The answer is, she wouldn’t have when she conveniently added that to her year book. What a crock.
A woman who has accused Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore of sexual misconduct says she made her own notes below a yearbook signature she claims was made by Moore.
Beverly Young Nelson, who has accused Moore of sexually assaulting her decades ago when she was 16 years old, told ABC News in a Friday interview that she made notes underneath Moore’s alleged yearbook signature, but defended the veracity of the message itself.
“Beverly, he signed your yearbook?” ABC News reporter Tom Llamas asked.
“He did sign it,” Nelson replied.
“And you made some notes underneath?” Llamas followed up.
“Yes,” she answered.
When Nelson accused Moore of sexual assaulting her after offering her a ride home from work, she produced a high school yearbook she says was signed by Moore as proof that she knew him at the time.
More from Patterico’s Pontifications of the accuser’s attorney Gloria Allred trying to spin her client’s lies.
Take a good listen to how accuser’s attorney Gloria Allred is answering the questions as to whether Judge Roy Moore signed the year book. She never says yes she did. Yes she saw him sign it. Sorry, this is BS. We all know now what the “DA” means. It has nothing to do with the title of District Attorney.
