Alt-right group tries to build small street army

An alt-right group is apparently trying to build a small street army — vowing to use violence if necessary to defend free speech from leftist extremists. Kyle Chapman — a “proud American nationalist” who became a conservative hero in some circles after his arrest this month during fierce clashes between anti-fascist protesters and Trump demonstrators — announced the formation of the new group last week on Facebook and issued a call to action. “Our emphasis will be on street activism, preparation, defense and confrontation,” Chapman wrote on Facebook. “We will protect and defend our right wing brethren when the police

Brothers bring Italian authenticity to Pappalecco cafes

Ten years ago today, Pappalecco was born in San Diego with its first cafe in Little Italy. This month, the company’s founders — Tuscany-raised brothers Francesco and Lorenzo Bucci — are celebrating their company’s recent expansion into North County. In January, they opened a location in Del Mar Heights and on May 3, they’ll host a grand opening party for their new cafe in Cardiff. As at all the other locations, the Cardiff celebration will feature a free round of imported aperitivo (Italian after-dinner digestif spirits) for all comers over 21. The new North County cafes bring the total number

A new version of Apple Music will ship later this year that puts an increased emphasis on video content, and particularly its own original video programming, according to a new report from Bloomberg out today.

US, Canada, Mexico agree to renegotiate NAFTA

President Trump and the leaders of Mexico and Canada agreed Wednesday to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the White House said – though Trump warned Thursday he’d be willing to “terminate” the pact if they can’t strike a “fair deal.”   “It is my privilege to bring NAFTA up to date through renegotiation,” Trump said in a statement late Wednesday. “It is an honor to deal with both President Peña Nieto and Prime Minister Trudeau, and I believe that the end result will make all three countries stronger and better.” The White House

Watch Haim's moody 'Right Now' video directed by Paul Thomas Anderson

Haim is back with, “Right Now,” the perfect song to get you through lonely, hot summer nights.  The video was directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, who apparently was their mom’s art student when he was a kid, as the band told Zane Lowe.  “She would always talk about this one kid named Paul. That she loved this kid Paul he was very energetic, artistic, vivacious,” said Alana. “We’d turn the TV on and Boogie Nights would come on or Magnolia and our mom was like, ‘oh that’s Paul’s movie.’ That being Paul Thomas Anderson.

Trump tax plan leaves the hard part to Congress, Ryan

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s tax plan leaves much of the heavy lifting to Congress, while ignoring years of hard work by the guy who will have to do a lot of that lifting: House Speaker Paul Ryan. The one-page proposal outlined by the Trump administration Wednesday has something for everyone — massive tax cuts for businesses and a bigger standard tax deduction for middle-income families, lower investment taxes for the wealthy, and an end to the federal estate tax for the superrich — like the president and his family. The changes to the tax code are the most concrete

Ivanka Trump is successful. Get over it.

OK, I had said I wasn’t going to write about Ivanka Trump again anytime soon. But that was before Trump was insulted Tuesday at the faux globalist do-gooder W20 conference in Germany. Speaking on a panel, “Inspiring Women: Scaling Up Women’s Entrepreneurship,” Trump was cool and collected when asked about her role in the Trump White House. And despite the curt moderator’s attempt to scold Trump, saying, “some attitudes toward women your father has displayed might leave one questioning whether he’s such an empowerer for women,” Trump still proved successful in defending the president. Imagine if that same statement had
