  • Tucker Carlson: Fox News host laughs along with guest after he suggests black people 'need to move on' from slavery

    A guest who appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show said African Americans “need to move on” from slavery because it was abolished “a century-and-a-half ago”. Mark Steyn, a cultural commentator, made the comments on Thursday during a segment discussing 2020 presidential candidates who are in favour of reparations for African Americans. During his rant, Steyn said: “Slavery was abolished a century and a half ago, nobody alive today has a grandparent who was a slave, and in that sense I think you reach a point where, you know, you need to move on.

  • Malnourished Venezuelans hope urgently needed aid arrives soon

    The 38-year-old is one of many Venezuelans suffering from malnutrition as the once-prosperous, oil-rich OPEC nation has seen its economy halve in size over the last five years under President Nicolas Maduro. Venezuelans' diets have become ever more deficient in vitamins and protein, as currency controls restrict food imports and salaries fail to keep apace with inflation that is now above 2 million percent annually. Growing malnutrition is one of the reasons Venezuela's opposition leader Juan Guaido has moved ahead with his plans to bring supplies of food and medicine into Venezuela by land and sea on Saturday, despite resistance from Maduro.

  • As tensions over aid rise, Venezuelan troops fire on villagers, kill two

    The United States, which is among dozens of Western nations to recognize opposition leader Juan Guaido as Venezuela's legitimate president, has been stockpiling aid in the Colombian frontier town of Cucuta to ship across the border this weekend. With tensions running high after Guaido invoked the constitution to declare an interim presidency last month, Maduro has denied there is a humanitarian crisis in Venezuela despite widespread shortages of food and medicine and hyperinflation. The socialist president has declared Venezuela's southern border with Brazil closed and threatened to do the same with the Colombian border ahead of a Saturday deadline by the opposition to bring in humanitarian assistance.

  • Warren Backs Government Reparations for African Americans

    Senator Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) on Thursday followed fellow Democratic presidential contender Senator Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) in calling for the government to pay reparations to African Americans to atone for slavery and subsequent discrimination.Warren's campaign told the New York Times that she does support some form of government reparations for the descendants of slaves, but did not specify what policy she we would pursue if elected in 2020.Warren's support for reparations came after Harris came out in support of the idea during a radio interview last week.“We have to be honest that people in this country do not start from the same place or have access to the same opportunities,” she said. “I’m serious about taking an approach that would change policies and structures and make real investments in black communities.”Since angering much of the progressive-activist community last year by publicizing the results of her DNA test to substantiate her claim of Native American ancestry, Warren has prioritized racial equity in laying out her 2020 presidential platform. She has called for a special home-buying-assistance program that would help alleviate the effects of racial red-lining, a phenomenon in which African Americans are prevented from buying homes in certain neighborhoods. She has also presented a universal-child-care proposal that would create a network of government-backed child-care centers available to families making under 200 percent of the federal poverty level.Other prominent Democratic presidential contenders, including Senators Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Cory Booker of New Jersey, and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, have not yet come out in support of reparations. Senator Bernie Sanders (D., Vt.) dismissed the idea of paying reparations to the descendants of slaves as impractical during his 2016 presidential run but has not weighed in on the issue since.

  • Trump border wall: Third of Pentagon money president plans to use for wall is already spent, officals say

    Up to a third of the $6.7bn (£5.2bn) in Pentagon funds Donald Trump has identified to spend on a US-Mexico border wall has already been spent, officials have revealed. During his emergency powers declaration last month, the US president announced he would divert billions of dollars from other Department of Defense projects towards the wall, in order to circumvent Congress. It included $3.6bn (£2.8bn) in unspent military construction money, as well as $2.5bn (£1.9bn) in counterdrug funds and $600m (£462m) from an asset forfeiture account – the latter two not dependent on the emergency delaration.

  • 10 movies and shows to watch on Netflix before they're removed in March

    As the Netflix library continues to round into form, with an increasing number of original shows and movies hitting the service every year, we seem to be losing fewer and fewer blockbusters from month to month. The same can be said of March 2019, as there are once again only a few notable dismissals from Netflix, including two live-action Disney flicks: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End and 2017's Beauty and the Beast.But the toughest pill to swallow has to be Role Models, which remains David Wain's best movie (a close call, Wet Hot American Summer) and one of the better Paul Rudd performances ever filmed. If you somehow missed it in 2008 (not calling anyone out by name (Mike)) you should definitely add this comedy to your queue.Here are the ten best movies that Netflix is dumping next month, and the date on which they will be dumped. If you don't watch them before then, you might never get to see them on Netflix at all: * Bruce Almighty (March 1st) * Fair Game (March 1st) * Ghostbusters (March 1st) * The Breakfast Club (March 1st) * The Gift (March 1st) * United 93 (March 1st) * Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (March 4th) * Role Models (March 16th) * Beauty and the Beast (March 18th) * Party of Five: Seasons 1-6 (March 31st)Once you've had your fill of content that will be disappearing from Netflix next month, you can check out the full list of movies, shows and specials being added to Netflix in March to take their place.
