Banner hung at Fenway Park: ‘Racism is as American as baseball'

Racism has once again become a topic of discussion at Fenway Park.

Fans at Wednesday’s Red Sox-Athletics game in Boston decided to unfurl a controversial banner that read “Racism is as American as baseball,” prompting the umpires to ask security to remove the fans and their banner, according to multiple reports.

It wasn’t clear exactly what message the fans were attempting to share at first, but one of them clarified later to the Boston Globe that it was anti-racism.

“The banner came in response to the racist comments at the beginning of the season at Fenway,” one of the banner holders, who remains unnamed, said, citing the story Orioles star Adam Jones shared in May about getting peanuts thrown at him and being called the N-word on multiple occasions. “Overall, we saw, we see Boston continually priding itself as a kind of liberal, not racist city, and are reminded also constantly that it’s actually an extremely segregated city.

“It has been for a long time, and that no white people can avoid the history of racism, essentially. So we did this banner as a gesture towards that, to have a conversation about that.”

It’s still unclear as to how they managed to get that monstrosity to the Green Monster. Seriously, that thing is massive.

The banner is just the latest racial incident to go down at Fenway Park this year.

In May, Jones called his treatment from fans at Fenway Park “unfortunate.”

Orioles’ Adam Jones says Red Sox fans called him N-word

“Very unfortunate. I heard there was 59 or 60 ejections tonight in the ballpark. It is what it is, right,” Jones said at the time. “I just go out and play baseball. It’s unfortunate that people need to resort to those type of epithets to degrade another human being. I’m trying to make a living for myself and for my family.”

Other major leaguers, including CC Sabathia, Curtis Granderson and Matt Kemp, all echoed that they’ve endured similar experiences, especially in Boston.

Sean Spicer passes blame on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Sean Spicer isn’t used to cheers.

The former White House press secretary joined Jimmy Kimmel Wednesday night and said the applause from the audience was a welcome relief — but insisted that people have thanked him for his service.

Spicer left his position at the White House in July after Anthony Scaramucci was named communications director, but stayed with the administration until the end of August.

But Kimmel was more interested in how his employment began, not ended: a fight with the press corps over the attendance at President Trump’s inauguration.

“The President wanted to make sure the record got straight,” Spicer said.

“There was a faction of people out there that didn’t want to give him the credit that he rightly deserved. And I think he takes that personally. A lot of people, in the media in particular, constantly sought to undermind the validity of that election.”

The former press secretary also insisted he’s never seen Trump naked when Kimmel asked about the President’s obsession with size.

Spicer also said that he had little choice in what he said at the lectern: whatever Trump says goes.

“Your job is to give him advice,” Spicer said, “but ultimately he’s the President.”

But even out of the White House, Spicer is still defending Trump’s alternative facts.

“You can look at an argument or a set of facts and come out with one opinion…and someone else can come up with a different conclusion,” he said.

“That’s what makes our country great.”

The former press secretary also said he never tried to pre-approve Trump’s tweets, no matter how problematic they became late into the night, calling social media “one of the President’s most effective tools in the campaign.”

Spicer said President Trump made him address the inauguration size during his first press briefing.

As for his hostile relationship with the press, Spicer blamed reporters for “perpetuating myths.”

He hedged when Kimmel pointed out that Trump does the same thing, but instead said “the press corps attacks the President or undermines him or calls into question his credibility.”

Spicer also denied that he left the White House over personal problems with Scaramucci, but said the New York financier didn’t have “the qualifications or the background to work in the communications office.”

As for the New Yorker article, in which Scaramucci unloaded an R-rated tirade at a reporter, Spicer said he wouldn’t “relish in someone else’s problems,” but that the outbursts “proved my point.”

He ended the late night appearance by insisting that Trump does, in fact, want to be President.

Google and YouTube spark outrage by BANNING vital North Korean videos from their websites

, and its parent company Google, made the decision to remove the channels which was met with anger from researchers desperate for a glimpse into the ultra-secretive nation.

Nonproliferation expert Joshua Pollack took to Twitter to criticise the move.

He said: “Basically, this hurts efforts to track activities of interest in a closed country — at the worst possible time.”

Tensions between and the US are close to erupting as aggressive rhetoric from Donald Trump is met with further provocative nuclear tests from Pyongyang.

Mr Pollack tweeted Google and YouTube saying: “We have a problem. Please restore North Korea-related channels ASAP. They are primary sources for researchers.”

Before they were deleted the online video channels carried clips from North Korea state TV and propaganda.

One of the channels on the popular social video website, Uriminzokkiri, had gathered millions of views from users.

A short message posted by YouTube claimed the site had been removed “due to a legal complaint”.

Footage carried on the Uriminzokkiri propaganda channel made worldwide news in 2013 after appearing to threaten the US by showing the White House in crosshairs and imagined an attack on the country.

North Korean analysts have previously scoured video footage from the channels for clues about ’s missiles and nuclear weapons.

Experts have hoped to understand what Pyongyang is telling its own people and what messages they wish to send to the rest of the world.

Researcher, Curtis Melvin, wrote an open letter to YouTube’s parent company Google to highlight the importance of the resource.

Mr Curtis’s letter read: “These North Korean videos are… indispensable sources of information for us on the outside.”

A YouTube spokesman: “We love that YouTube is a powerful platform for documenting events and shining light on dark corners around the world, but we must comply with the law.

“We disable accounts that repeatedly violate our community guidelines or terms of service and when we are required by law to do so.”

The channels did not have adverts so the cruel regime was not making any money from them, experts pointed out.

Mr Curtis, of the US-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins University, suggested the action could be the result of harsh new sanctions drafted by the US and adopted by the UN could be to blame.

The sanctions will see North Korea banned from obtaining liquid natural gas and from exporting textile.

Todd Bowles still hasn’t settled on who Jets’ backup QB will be

Todd Bowles might have settled on a backup quarterback, but he isn’t revealing that information to the public.

For the second straight week, Bowles is refusing to name a No. 2 signal-caller. The Jets face the Raiders in Oakland on Sunday.

Christian Hackenberg served as the backup in the Jets’ season-opening loss to the Bills, but a source told the Daily News that was only because Bryce Petty was not entirely healed from a Grade 1 MCL sprain in his left knee. Petty has said repeatedly, including Wednesday, that he is healthy. He’s participated fully in every practice since the start of the regular season.

When asked Wednesday if Hackenberg will be his backup again this week, Bowles said, “I haven’t decided on that yet.”

Bowles said it’s possible he could spend the rest of the season deciding on a backup for each game. But he also noted there’s a chance he names a permanent backup at some point in 2017.

“It could go either way,” Bowles said.

Obviously, the coaching staff conducted its most significant evaluation of Hackenberg and Petty during OTAs, training camp and the preseason. At this point, Bowles, offensive coordinator John Morton and quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates know what they have in both players.

So what factors play into Bowles’ choice on the backup quarterback?

“Just my decision,” Bowles said.

Petty admitted there’s not much he can do at this juncture to win the job.

“It’s not really about that. I think that part is already done with OTAs, training camp, preseason,” Petty told the Daily News. “So now it’s all about the Jets. It’s about what we can do as a team, as an offense to make sure that we’re in the win column.”

Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg are apparently both still in the running to backup Josh McCown.

Naturally, though, Petty would rather be active than inactive on Sundays.

“At the same time, I don’t sit there and sulk on why,” Petty said. “I would much rather see this locker room win. That’s really how I view it and how I see it and how I’ve done it since I’ve been here. Obviously as a competitor you want to be out there, but it’s what’s best for the team.”

INJURY REPORT

TE Jordan Leggett (knee), LB Bruce Carter (sprained ankle), TE Eric Tomlinson (sprained elbow) and S Rontez Miles (fractured eye socket) all didn’t practice Wednesday. Bowles did not rule any of the four players out for Sunday’s game in Oakland.

LB Edmond Robinson (groin) and CB Morris Claiborne (sore ankle) were limited.

Farrah Abraham's List of Demands for Fans of Her Rejuvenated Vagina

Farrah Abraham I Show My New Lady Parts… You Show Me Fab Trips and Prizes!!!

9/13/2017 5:22 PM PDT

EXCLUSIVE

The path to Farrah Abraham‘s rejuvenated vagina might be well worn, but you can still make an impression on her — for the cost of a new pair of heels or a trip to Bangkok.

Farrah’s created a profile for herself on the porn site, CamSoda — where she’s debuting her post-op vajayjay — and it includes a wish list of things potential suitors can send her. It’s a diverse wish list, but everything on it is expensive as hell:

– trips to Thailand, Greece, Monaco and Brazil
– $ 200 for a mani/pedi
– $ 3000 for hair
– Louis Vuitton purse, travel bag and carry-on luggage
– $ 1000 shopping spree
– size 9 heels 

We’re guessing the heels better be Louboutins or bust. The list might sound greedy, but in fairness — porn stars commonly do this online.

Farrah makes her adult camming debut Wednesday evening, so who knows what will be filled … from the list by morning.

Jemele Hill regrets hurting ESPN with tweet about Trump

Jemele Hill has released a statement on her political tweet heard ‘round the world.

And she isn’t apologizing for words. Rather, Hill says she regrets the spot it put her employer in.

“My comments on Twitter expressed my personal beliefs,” she wrote on Twitter late Wednesday. “My regret is that my comments and the public way I made them painted ESPN in an unfair light.

“My respect for the company and my colleagues remains unconditional.”

ESPN said they ’addressed’ the matter with Hill Tuesday after she tweeted that Trump is “a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.”

“The comments on Twitter from Jemele Hill regarding the President do not represent the position of ESPN,” the network said.

(Twitter)

After Hill took to Twitter with the statement, ESPN told CNN Money they “accept her apology,” but also blamed her for “implying” she was speaking for the network with the “white supremacist” tweet.  

“Jemele has a right to her personal opinions, but not to publicly share them on a platform that implies that she was in any way speaking on behalf of ESPN,” they said. “She has acknowledged that her tweets crossed that line and has apologized for doing so. We accept her apology.”

Hill did not mention ESPN anywhere in her tweet that has caused a stir.

She co-hosted Sportscenter at 6 p.m., like she usually does, with Michael Smith on Wednesday evening.

Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi make DACA deal with Trump at W.H.

Pass the duck sauce, and hold the wall.

The top House and Senate Democrats announced an immigration reform package Wednesday that will protect Dreamers and provide border security, following a dinner meeting with President Trump in the White House at which they had Chinese food.

The agreement does not include funding for Trump’s long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexican border.

It does protect 800,000 immigrants, known as Dreamers, who were brought illegally to the U.S. as children. The immigrants’ lives were upended when the Trump administration decided to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, known as DACA, which shielded them from deportation.

Nancy Pelosi, Trump law boss mull border security to save DACA

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi joined Trump and several cabinet members for dinner, continuing the Republican President’s sudden outreach to the other side of the aisle, which has horrified his GOP colleagues.

“We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides,” Schumer and Pelosi said in a joint statement after the meal deal.

The agreement specifies bipartisan legislation called the DREAM Act that provides eventual citizenship for the young immigrants, a source told The Associated Press.

Trump and the two top Democrats were joined by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, White House chief of staff John Kelly and Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney.

Pope Francis says Trump DACA repeal not ‘pro-life’

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, the top two Republicans in Congress, were noticeably absent.

Ryan told the AP he was meeting with Pelosi before her dinner, and the two of them planned to discuss immigration reform.

For most of this year, Trump has made the Senate and House minority leaders some of his biggest targets in Congress.

He has called Schumer a “clown” and “Fake Tears Chuck” because the New York senator became weepy at a protest of Trump’s travel ban. Californian Pelosi, meanwhile, was derided as a “loser” and a liar.

Stephen Bannon says he fears DACA will ignite GOP civil war

But Trump stunned Congress last week when he struck an unexpected deal with the Democrats on debt ceiling and government spending legislation, shunning discussions he held with Republican leaders and his own staff.

President Trump and First Lady Melania lead a moment of silence on the South Lawn of the White House on Sept. 11, 2017, the 16th anniversary of the attacks.

He later fired off a tweet reassuring Dreamers — at Pelosi’s request.

After another bipartisan meeting at the White House earlier in the day, Trump told reporters, “More and more we’re trying to work things out together.”

The fate of Trump’s beloved wall, which he has vowed Mexico will eventually fund, remains to be seen.

New Yorkers protest ‘sociopath’ Trump’s move to end DACA

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders countered the Dems’ claim that the barricade was off the table.

“While DACA and border security were both discussed, excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to,” she tweeted.

Trump later enjoyed an after-dinner tweet, taking aim at his least favorite Democrat and her new book.

“Crooked Hillary Clinton blames everybody (and everything) but herself for her election loss. She lost the debates and lost her direction!” Trump wrote of his presidential rival.

North Korea threatens to reduce US to 'ash' for sanctions calling them 'state terrorism'

The threats come after the UN voted unanimously to restrict shipments of fuel to Pyongyang and for a total ban on textile exports.

In a statement, North Korea responded by calling the actions “state terrorism” and that the “chief culprit” involved in “cooking up the ‘sanctions resolution’, be beaten to death with a stick fit for a rabid dog”.

The tirade continues: “Now is the time to annihilate the imperialist aggressors. Let’s reduce the US mainland into ashes and darkness.”

Japan is also threatened, as the hermit kingdom claims they will be “sunk into the sea by a nuclear bomb” and South Korea to be “severely punished and wiped out with fire”.

It follows satellite images that have been released indicating Kim Jong-Un has ambitions to continue his nuclear programme despite the sanctions.

The pictures were taken above the Punggye-ri nuclear test site in the north of the country.

Analysts for 38 North, who are devoted to reporting on the regime, believe this activity may indicate that preparation for future tests in other underground portals is underway.

The pictures apparently show a fresh crater, which may have been caused by the portal used for the hydrogen bomb test caving in after detonation, although 38 North said it was impossible to be certain.

Although experts have now concluded the latest nuclear test yielded an estimated 250 kilotons blast which is believed to be the maximum yield the Punggye-ri can contain.

NBC journalist Hans Nichols tweeted: “US intel has observed N Korea prepping for a possible missile test in coming days, per 3 mil officials. UN sanctions have not slowed program.”

Treasury Secretary Steve Munchin suggested on Wednesday that the US is willing to cut off trade “with anyone who trades with North Korea”.

He said in an interview on Fox News: “I’ve worked on an executive order that’s ready if the president wants to use it.

“We are going to be careful in using these tools, but the president is committed. We will use economic sanctions to bring North Korea to the table.”

When asked whether he included China, Mnuchin replied: “Stopping trade with anybody. Nobody would be off the table.”
