>NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New York man who said he was Donald Trump’s personal driver for more than 20 years sued the U.S. president’s company on Monday, claiming he was not paid for thousands of hours of overtime.

>Noel Cintron, 59, said the Trump Organization has not paid him for 3,300 hours of overtime in the last six years or given him a “meaningful” raise for 12 years.

>The Trump Organization said Cintron was paid fairly.

>Cintron is seeking damages that his lawyer said could reach $400,000, including punitive damages and sums for federal and state labor law violations.

>The unpaid overtime alone totaled more than $178,000, at $54.09 per hour, and could have been higher but for a statute of limitations, the complaint said.

>“In an utterly callous display of unwarranted privilege and entitlement and without even a minimal sense of noblesse oblige President Donald Trump has, through the defendant entities, exploited and denied significant wages to his own longstanding personal driver,” the complaint said.

>The Trump Organization disagreed. “Mr. Cintron was at all times paid generously and in accordance with the law,” a spokeswoman said in an email. “Once the facts come out we expect to be fully vindicated in court.”

Wonder why the driver waits until now. Maybe someone finally got him the money to sue.

Not for the hours he did, apparently.

Einstein's diaries contain shocking details of his racism

Newly translated into English, Albert Einstein's private travel diaries from the 1920s reveal that he was racist in his early life, especially toward Chinese people.

The journals, published as "The Travel Diaries of Albert Einstein" by Princeton University Press, reveal that Einstein, perhaps the most famous scientist of all time and known for his theory of general relativity and the equation e=mc2, was extraordinarily biased toward certain populations. This is a stark contrast to his stance later in life, when he said that racism was a "disease of white people."

The diaries were written between October 1922 and March 1923. In one entry Einstein wrote that the “Chinese don’t sit on benches while eating but squat like Europeans do when they relieve themselves out in the leafy woods. All this occurs quietly and demurely. Even the children are spiritless and look obtuse.”

Speaking about the “abundance of offspring” and the “fecundity” of the Chinese, he continued: “It would be a pity if these Chinese supplant all other races. For the likes of us the mere thought is unspeakably dreary.”

I know, doesn't change the point.
He's right though. I agree with what he has said. Things haven't changed since then.
Nice pilpul ya got there faggot
Einstein was from Germany when they believed the where all supermen living among vermin... how is it a surprise that he had some racist tendencies in his early life?

Also he was pretty smart and saw the error of his ways so is this really even news?
This isn't news.
This is fox news.

Overall, the poll revealed that Democrats are losing young Americans in general. For example, before Trump’s election, 55 percent of young Americans said they favored Democrats over Republicans. Today, that margin is down to only 46 percent of young Americans who are still loyal to Democrats.

Key to Trump’s election was the issue of mass illegal and legal immigration, wherein the United States admits more than 1.5 million immigrants every year. As Breitbart News reported, a majority of white Americans say immigration to the U.S. has made life in America “worse.”

The Reuters poll also comes as the Democratic Party is increasingly built on a platform of open borders in the hopes of diversifying the American electorate to dramatically change the direction of the country.

TOKYO — In a sharp signal that denuclearization negotiations with North Korea will be drawn out and difficult, Pyongyang on Saturday lambasted the U.S. stance as regrettable, gangster-like and cancerous, directly contradicting Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s rosy assessment that his two days of talks had been “productive.”

A harsh statement from an unnamed spokesman for the Foreign Ministry was carried on the state-run Korea Central News Agency just hours after Pompeo left Pyongyang on Saturday and told reporters that significant progress had been made “in every element” of what he characterized as “good-faith negotiations.” Pyongyang crushed that appraisal, saying the United States had betrayed the spirit of the June 12 Singapore summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

“The U.S. side came up only with its unilateral and gangster-like demand for denuclearization,” the statement said.

“The issues the U.S. side insisted on during the talks were the same cancerous ones that the past U.S. administrations had insisted on,” it added.

Though North Korea still has faith in Trump, the statement said, it warned that the U.S. approach had brought the two countries to a “dangerous” stage that could “rattle our willingness for denuclearization.”

It was unclear whether the North Korean statement represented potential doom for meaningful negotiations, as some analysts believed, or was just Pyongyang’s standard negotiating style, as others asserted. It exposed the fragility of discussions at the center of Trump’s foreign policy and raised questions about Pyongyang’s intentions.

So I heard on the radio today something about Trump head asked him why he referred to him as Rocket Man. Kim said he had no idea and Trump said it was a song and Kim had no idea what he was talking about.
Apparently pompeyo brought a recording of Elton John's Rocket Man to play for Kim. Maybe he got offended haha
Shoulda used the Shatner version.
Trump has actually done something to deserve it. North Korea is starting to move towards peace.
They weren't. They "interpreted" what the White House official said and they did so incorrectly, by putting words into his mouth that didn't exist. I listened to the transcript in order to blow out >>268064 but it turned out that Pottinger actually did nothing of the sort.

I'm arguing the facts AND situation. The times Obama did have them in 'cages' was when there was an overflow and they needed to be held in temporary facilities, they will quickly moved out of them once space was cleared from them to processed.
Trump created internment camps and broke up families as part of his policies.The fact Trump doesn't know where the children are and can't reunite the families is proof he thought he could just lock children in cages and people wouldn't care. It's both cruel and incompetence.
Seems fitting for a cunt of her magnitude.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. economy created more jobs than expected in June, but steady wage gains pointed to moderate inflation pressures that should keep the Federal Reserve on a path of gradual interest rate increases this year.

Nonfarm payrolls rose by 213,000 jobs last month as manufacturers stepped up hiring, the Labor Department said on Friday. The economy added 37,000 more jobs in April and May than previously reported. It needs to create about 120,000 jobs per month to keep up with growth in the working-age population.

“Overall the report is good news insofar as it suggests the economy still has some capacity to grow at an above-trend pace without generating much inflationary pressure,” said Michael Feroli, an economist at JPMorgan in New York. “Similarly, it should ease the concerns of the hawks (at the Fed) who worry that the Fed’s rate hike campaign is behind the curve.”

A larger deficit and less investing in infrastructure, education, social safety-net, soon to include medicare and social security if the GOP makes out well in the midterm elections. Someone has to pay for those cuts in corporate, inheritance, and high-income taxes.

>potential peace with North Korea
We have had peace with NK for decades now; the issue is more than we don't want them to have nukes because they're totalitarian and their regime can quickly destabilize and also close enough to nuke us.
That has gotten worse.

>low unemployment
The working age unemployment rate has been improving at the same pace since the last time the GOP broke it with the great recession. Once it finally approaches full and we get ready for some across the board gains in real wages, the bubble will pop again and the working and middle class will be back to square one. Meanwhile executives won't even feel the bump. Low corporate taxes and deregulation doesn't magically make for a stable economy for the rest of us.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Immigrant children as young as 14 housed at a juvenile detention center in Virginia say they were beaten while handcuffed and locked up for long periods in solitary confinement, left nude and shivering in concrete cells.

The abuse claims against the Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center near Staunton, Virginia, are detailed in federal court filings that include a half-dozen sworn statements from Latino teens jailed there for months or years. Multiple detainees say the guards stripped them of their clothes and strapped them to chairs with bags placed over their heads.

"Whenever they used to restrain me and put me in the chair, they would handcuff me," said a Honduran immigrant who was sent to the facility when he was 15 years old. "Strapped me down all the way, from your feet all the way to your chest, you couldn't really move. ... They have total control over you. They also put a bag over your head. It has little holes; you can see through it. But you feel suffocated with the bag on."

In addition to the children's first-hand, translated accounts in court filings, a former child-development specialist who worked inside the facility independently told The Associated Press this week that she saw kids there with bruises and broken bones they blamed on guards. She spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to publicly discuss the children's cases.

In court filings, lawyers for the detention facility have denied all allegations of physical abuse.

Many of the children were sent there after U.S. immigration authorities accused them of belonging to violent gangs, including MS-13. President Donald Trump has repeatedly cited gang activity as justification for his crackdown on illegal immigration.

Vegetable prices may be going up soon, as a shortage of migrant workers is resulting in lost crops in California.

Farmers say they’re having trouble hiring enough people to work during harvest season, causing some crops to rot before they can be picked. Already, the situation has triggered losses of more than $13 million in two California counties alone, according to NBC News.

The ongoing battle about U.S. immigration policies is blamed for the shortage. The vast majority of California’s farm workers are foreign born, with many coming from Mexico. However, the PEW Research Center reports more Mexicans are leaving the U.S. than coming here.

To make the jobs more attractive, farmers are offering salaries above minimum wage, along with paid time off and 401(k) plans, but even that’s not proving enough.

It’s unclear exactly how widespread the labor shortage is for farmers throughout the country, which would have a bigger impact on prices consumers pay. Ultimately, drought and flooding have a more significant impact on farms. Low oil prices could also offset any impact of the worker shortage.

But for farmers, who have seen net farm income fall 50% since 2013, any lost income could be potentially devastating.

1. Fair but theres underlying calamity in that the standards of living often arent great (slumlord-esque, no personal transportation, wage abysmal)
2. Paranoid and irrational soapboxing
3. Rule of Law. It's in the federal gov job description to keep the country secure. Why when citizens are having trouble shouldnt they get first dibs on resources? If I only have 1 shirt off my back to give is it right to give it to a criminal or lawbider citizen? See one is propagating disstabilization and the other is giving strength to a countryman.
4. What you describe is more like a malady of media than politics. No one tells it like it is because its not really their duty to make you have informed decision, that part is on the individual to allocate the effort towards because meaningful changes come from within
>To make the jobs more attractive, farmers are offering salaries above minimum wage, along with paid time off and 401(k) plans, but even that’s not proving enough.

I don't believe this horseshit for a second.
Legal immigrants are as big of a problem as illegal immigrants. No one should be fucking immigrating here unless they're married to a US citizen. No job should be filled by immigrants.
as they should. those wetbacks are invaders and it's not just about jobs it's about our national identity.

How do you know it's the farmers? It could be the fishermen that's an heroing, and the farmers take the blame by being in the same group.
