    Liar Liar, the anti-Theresa May single that is racing up the Official Singles Chart, is now battling for this Friday's Number 1, OfficialCharts.com can reveal. By London seven-piece band Captain Ska, Liar Liar has continued to rise the chart ranks overnight and currently sits at Number 3 in today's sales flash (May 31). Sales of Liar Liar are being driven by downloads, with over 30,000 people picking up a digital copy of the track in five days, while the song has so far been streamed just over 100,000 times. The song's music video, which includes statistics on UK poverty levels and references to school and police cuts, is now has over one million views on YouTube. There has been speculation whether the BBC will air the song as part of Friday's Official Chart show on BBC Radio 1 due to the current election climate here in the UK. A spokesman has since confirmed that the BBC will conform with OFCOM ruling and stay impartial, stating: "We do not ban songs or artists, however our editorial guidelines require us to remain impartial and the UK is currently in an election period so we will not be playing the song.” Captain Ska are campaigning for the song to also be played on BBC Radio 1's Ten Minute Takeover, although the station has not featured the track despite the band's campaigns across the week. A clip of Liar Liar was however featured on BBC Two's Daily Politics Show. The band said in a statement: "The success of this song shows people are fed up with this government of the rich, for the rich. We’re overwhelmed with the support and our message is that people do have the power to change society if we act together.” Find out Liar Liar's final chart placing here on OfficialCharts.com at 5.45pm this Friday. Follow the Top 40 countdown live on BBC Radio 1's Official Chart show with Greg James from 4pm on Friday, June 2. View the latest Top 100 here. Source: OCC
  2. A top aide to President-elect Donald Trump says singer-songwriter Elton John will perform at the Republican’s inauguration in January. “Elton John is going to be doing our concert on the [national] mall for Inauguration,” Anthony Scaramucci, vice chairman of the presidential inaugural committee, told BBC’s “HARDtalk” Tuesday. Scaramucci added that John, an icon of gay culture, demonstrates the incoming Trump administration’s dedication to LGBT rights. “This will be the first American president in U.S. history that enters the White House with a pro-gay rights stance,” added Scaramucci, who is also a member of the presidential transition team’s executive committee. An aide to the performer, however, told the New York Post that John wouldn't perform at Trump's inauguration. “Elton will not be performing at Trump’s inauguration,” the representative said. Source

  4. Hillary Clinton 4, Donald Trump 2, Gary Johnson 1 -- and a single write-in surprise: Mitt Romney. With eight residents voting and five times as many reporters watching, Dixville Notch has spoken. On a frigid night in the largely forgotten region about halfway between the Maine and Canadian borders, the small northern New Hampshire town came alive for several minutes of kitschy democratic conflict. This latest round of wee hours voting extends a tradition that traces back more than a half-century. With the results in from Dixville Notch this long-awaited Election Day is officially underway, and sure as the Earth turns on its axis, the end of the 2016 presidential contest seems impossibly closer. The Granite State's tight Senate race will enter Election Day deadlocked, with Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan and incumbent Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte each Dixville notching 4 votes. Tuesday night's result will hearten superstitious Clinton supporters. The town's small collection of dedicated voters have correctly picked the eventual winner in three of the last four contests. In 2000 and 2004 it broke for George W. Bush and in 2008 it delivered a victory for Barack Obama. Its more recent results have been less predictive. Romney and Obama split 10 votes in 2012, and John Kasich edged out Trump in this year's GOP primary kick-off. Nearby Millsfield, which also voted at midnight, delivered a big win for Trump, who scored 16 votes to Clinton's four. One voter wrote-in Bernie Sanders, the New Hampshire Democratic primary winner. Meanwhile, Clinton rallied to a narrow victory in Hart's Location, outscoring Trump by a 17-14 margin, with Johnson gaining another three votes and two more voters volunteering Sanders. With overnight in-person voting completed, Trump carries a seven-vote lead over Clinton, 32-25. Millsfield in 2016 is looking to horn in on what has been a calling card for Dixville Notch since 1960, when John F. Kennedy shutout Richard Nixon, 9 votes to nil. Hart's Location, too, has a tradition here, one that traces back to 1948, when voting began at dawn, and then a move to midnight in 1952. But they quit in 1964, leaving Dixville Notch as the leading hours-after-primetime player. Wayne Urso, Millsfield's ambitious election official, is hoping to displace Dixville Notch. He spent the morning talking trash about his very-early voting rivals. "We actually have a population here," Urso told CNN. "They may be registered to vote there (in Dixville Notch), but if you ask them where they live, you'll find that nobody actually lives there." The Dixville Notch voting takes place in the storied Ballot Room of the Balsams Grand Resort Hotel, which has been closed to tourists for five years as new owners work to revamp the once bustling ski stop. Millsfield's decision to take on the embattled establishment was made, he said, during a post-primary skull session. "We had a meeting of all the voters -- because all the voters can probably fit in my living room," Urso said. Asked if they wanted to continue midnight voting in the general election, "Everyone said, 'Yeah.' " But why this year -- why call attention to the town during this especially divisive season? "We don't have that problem in Millsfield," Urso said of his isolated provincial town. "We almost never talk about politics amongst ourselves. Whether it's divisive across the country ... it doesn't pertain to us." An American institution, indeed. x
  5. During the 2002 “Hardball College Tour,” for which MSNBC’s “Hardball With Chris Matthews” spoke to politicians at various colleges and universities, Matthews asked then-Senator (and rumored presidential candidate) Clinton if she supported gay marriage in the state of New York. She said “no,” and the assembled crowd of University of Albany students responded with spirited boos. To which she responded with an awkward grin. Oof. "I believe marriage is not just a bond but a sacred bond between a man and a woman. I have had occasion in my life to defend marriage, to stand up for marriage, to believe in the hard work and challenge of marriage. So I take umbrage at anyone who might suggest that those of us who worry about amending the Constitution are less committed to the sanctity of marriage, or to the fundamental bedrock principle that it exists between a man and a woman, going back into the midst of history as one of the founding, foundational institutions of history and humanity and civilization, and that its primary, principal role during those millennia has been the raising and socializing of children for the society into which they are to become adults." Hillary Clinton 2004. Clinton looked America’s favorite lesbian in the face and said she still didn’t support gay marriage. When asked why not, she said marriage should be left up to the states. Still a far cry from “full federal equality.”
  6. Still, the president drew a conclusion from all this: "Now, if somebody can't handle a Twitter account, they can't handle the nuclear codes." He didn't stop there. "If somebody starts tweeting at 3 in the morning because SNL made fun of you, then you can't handle the nuclear codes," said the president. X
  7. FBI Director James Comey abruptly announced Sunday that a review of newly discovered emails sent or received by Hillary Clinton has not changed his conclusion that the Democrat should not face criminal charges. His announcement came in a letter to congressional lawmakers two days before Election Day. Comey said the FBI has worked "around the clock to process and review a large number of emails" obtained from a device belonging to Anthony Weiner, the disgraced former congressman and estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. He said the review has not changed the bureau's assessment from earlier this year that Clinton should not be prosecuted for her handling of classified information at the State Department. Source
  8. Donald Trump was rushed offstage by members of his Secret Service detail after a commotion broke out in the audience at an event at Reno, Nevada. The Republican presidential candidate was making a campaign speech at a Reno convention center when there was some kind of scuffle in the crowd in front of the podium and two Secret Service agents came and quickly brought Trump offstage. A man was taken from the room by a group of police officers, and Trump eventually returned to the stage to finish his speech. Source
  9. Interim chair of the Democratic National Committee Donna Brazile has parted ways with CNN after it was revealed via leaked documents that she provided Hillary Clinton‘s campaign with debate questions ahead of time. “CNN never gave Brazile access to any questions, prep material, attendee list, background information or meetings in advance of a town hall or debate. We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor,” the network released in a statement (via THR). “Her family has lead poison and she will ask what, if anything, will Hillary do as president to help the ppl of Flint,” one email from Donna apparently read about what one audience member would be asking. Earlier this month, Donna denied she had ever shared information. “Thank you @CNN. Honored to be a Democratic Strategist and commentator on the network. Godspeed to all my former colleagues,” Donna tweeted today. Source
  10. The President believes that she has done a fine job stepping in in a very difficult situation to lead the Democratic party. Those of us who’ve known Donna a long time know that she is a person of integrity and a person of high character. She is a true professional who is a tenacious and effective advocate for Democrats. She uses that skill regularly on television, she has been using that skill regularly as a party official, and I for one am pretty excited about the fact that we’ve got her on our team.
  11. “The Hollywood Walk of Fame is an institution celebrating the positive contributions of the inductees,” said Leron Gubler head of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, about four hours after a man identifying himself as Jaime Otis smashed the ex-Apprentice host’s star with a pixax and sledgehammer “When people are unhappy with one of our honorees, we would hope that they would project their anger in more positive ways than to vandalize a California State landmark. Our democracy is based on respect for the law. People can make a difference by voting and not destroying public property.” Source

    Food Trucks EVERYWHERE The perimeter of Trump's Las Vegas hotel are surrounded by not only by taco trucks, but by food truck entrepreneurs who wish to stand with Trump's workers and against his bigotry. Japanese burrito trucks, halal carts, a kebab truck, crepe truck and a Vietnamese banh mi sandwich truck are all expected to be in attendance. Tacos will also be provided to attendees at no charge. A pseudo-brick border will also be posted up where workers at the Trump hotel can write down their name and their country of origin. On Wednesday, the American Bridge organization, in cooperation with several Latino organizations, will be standing behind the Culinary Union. The mission this time isn't to register people to vote, but rather to send a message to Trump: They won't succumb to his bigotry. "Mr. Donald Trump said he wants to make America great again, but here in Las Vegas, his employees are paid less than the culinary workers working on the Las Vegas strip," Culinary Union spokeswoman Bethany Khan said in a phone interview. "Most of his workers are women and immigrants," she continued. "They are making his hotels great again. Unfortunately, he doesn't support them with the dignity and respect they deserve." Since its inception, Trump's Las Vegas hotel has refused to recognize the union and faced numerous attempts of intimidation. According toThinkProgress, several employees — who are about 80% immigrant and over 50% women — claimed the hotel management threatened, verbally abused and physically assaulted them. "My culture is a very dominant culture, and it's imposing and it's causing problems," the Trump surrogate said. "If you don't do something about it, you're going to have taco trucks on every corner." The Culinary Union's Khan said that it's unlikely for Trump to fulfill his promise in making "America great again," when he can't even negotiate with or treat his workers fairly. "Donald Trump wants to make America great again, but isn't even doing it at his hotel," Khan said. "Start here with us at the hotel."
  15. For anyone interested in this presidential election, read this glorious article from Fair! And for the ones who won't do that, I highlighted what really matters about the recent Hillary leaks: . in a meeting with the building trades union she complained about environmental activists, saying they should "get a life" and she will continue to support fracking . in a speech to Goldman Sachs she praised TPP while denying support for it in public . Hillary expressed awareness, in front of bankers, that a no-fly zone in Syria (something she publicly supports) would kill lots of innocent Syrian civilians . in a leaked e-mail Hillary acknowledges that Saudi Arabia and Qatar (two of the most important allies of the US, and from which the Clinton Foundation receives millions of dollars) are funding and supporting ISIS and other Islamic terrorist groups (something the US, and Clinton, have denied publicly many times) . in front of bankers, she underscored how important it was to have a public and a private stance, because the common people aren't capable of handling what happens behind closed doors . journalists (which the leaks prove Hillary is in close contact to - 96% of political donations made by journalists went to Clinton, and she has certain political understandings with journalists who will plant fake stories for her) are using the familiar "there's nothing new to see here" strategy, as if we all knew what is revealed, even though corporate media have been denying what "conspiracy theorists" and "ignorant millennial Bernie supoporters" have been saying all along And no, I'm not a Trump supporter, but these things are important to talk about, because even if Hillary wins, these things should not be ignored and forgotten Discuss
