Associated Press Published 8:34 PM EDT Jun 18, 2019 Orlando, Fla. – Jabbing at the press and poking at the political establishment, President Donald Trump officially kicked off his reelection campaign Tuesday at a Florida rally where he exhorted thousands of rollicking supporters to keep advancing his political movement to put America’s “own citizens first.” At the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, Trump reminisced about his 2016 campaign, describing it is as a “great political movement” and “a defining moment in American history.” And he said he had fundamentally upended Washington, staring down “a corrupt and broken political establishment” and restoring a government “of, for and by the people.” Vice President Mike Pence offered a more direct pitch. “We’re here for one reason and reason only: America needs four more years of President Donald Trump,” he said, prompting a “Four more … [Read more...] about Trump kicks off 2020 campaign at Orlando rally

Plenty of people try to emulate Duchess Meghan's royal style. That's why most things she wears—dresses, coats, tops, everything—tend to sell out pretty quickly, with some even deeming it the "Meghan Markle effect." But recently, it seems a certain celebrity even copped the Duchess of Sussex's style on the red carpet. 6 PHOTOS Amanda Peet at 'Game of Thrones' Season 8 premiere See Gallery Amanda Peet at 'Game of Thrones' Season 8 premiere NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 3: Amanda Peet attends 'Game Of Thrones' New York Premiere at Radio City Music Hall, NYC on April 3, 2019 in New York City.

Ryan Ford Detroit Free Press Published 10:00 AM EST Feb 2, 2019 The Detroit Red Wings retired Red Kelly’s No. 4 on Friday night before their game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Kelly is the eighth player to have his number raised to the rafters by the Red Wings. Nearly 59 years passed between Kelly’s final game for the Wings (Feb. 4, 1960) and the Wings’ number retirement. Though a week after his retirement, he came out of retirement and was traded to Toronto (where he played until 1967). This prompts the question on many Wings’ fans’ minds: When, if ever, will the Red Wings retire Sergei Fedorov’s No. 91? Free Press sports writer Ryan Ford takes a look at the Detroit career of Fedorov, whose time with the Red Wings ended on a contentious note when he signed with the Anaheim Ducks as a free agent in 2003. Running out of numbers? As an Original Six team, the Wings have seen plenty of great players wear the Winged Wheel — 79 … [Read more...] about Why the Detroit Red Wings should retire Sergei Fedorov’s 91
Frank Witsil Detroit Free Press Published 11:51 AM EST Jan 23, 2019 Black Hebrew Israelites, an obscure religious movement, has become a focus of the controversy related to the face off at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. that has sparked a national debate about politics, race, religion, social media and civility. "The Black Hebrew Israelites are really a movement," Heidi Beirich, with the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Ala., said Tuesday. "They have a particular interpretation of the Bible in which they believe that blacks are the true tribes of Israel, essentially, the true Jews." Outrage exploded on social media during the holiday weekend as the video encounter between Native American leader, Nathan Phillips of Ypsilanti and the students from Covington Catholic High School went viral. Phillips said he waded into the group of students to defuse tension between the students and the Black … [Read more...] about Black Hebrew Israelites movement new focus of viral standoff
In the initial media churn, they were nearly missed. But a small band of Hebrew Israelites, members of a historic but little-known American religious movement, may actually be at the center of a roiling controversy that has gripped the nation in recent days. It began with a now-viral video clip, filmed Friday at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, in which high school students from a Catholic school in Kentucky appeared to be in a faceoff with a Native American elder, who was beating on a drum. The boys, some wearing red hats with President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan, appeared in the clip to be mocking the man, a Vietnam veteran named Nathan Phillips. The clip was widely understood as being centrally about the dangers of Trumpism, and the teens were condemned. But a longer video soon bubbled to the surface, widening the lens. It showed how a group of half a dozen Hebrew Israelites had, in fact, been goading and preaching at both the Native Americans and high schoolers, … [Read more...] about Who are the Black Israelites at the center of the viral standoff at the Lincoln Memorial?
