Trump WH website scrubs civil rights, climate controlTalk about your high-speed internet.

The White House website, under control of the Trump administration since noon, wasted little time Friday in taking down pages regarding LGBT rights, climate change, civil rights and Obamacare.

All four were previously listed under the “Issues” section of under President Obama — and all four disappeared shortly after Donald Trump took the oath of office.

Deadly strike against Isis in SyriaA US air strike on Thursday targeting an al-Qaeda training camp in Syria killed more than 100 fighters, a US defence official said on Friday.

The strike took place just a day before the end of President Barack Obama's presidency and a day after more than 80 Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) were killed in US air strikes in Libya.

Isis destroys tetrapylon monument in Palmyra

Isis destrys tetrapylonIslamic State militants have destroyed a tetrapylon and part of a Roman theatre in the ancient city of Palmyra in the group’s latest attack on Syria’s heritage.

“This is a horror film and we will see more of it, as long as the city is under their control it will remain a hostage,” said Maamoun Abdulkarim, the country’s director of antiquities.


Mark Gastineau: I have dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s

Mark GastineauMark Gastineau, the flamboyant former Jets defensive end and centerpiece of their infamous Sack Exchange, always had a flair for the dramatic — both good and bad.

But what he revealed about himself during a bizarre and rambling 30-minute radio interview on Thursday sounded like a low point.

The 60-year-old Gastineau portrayed his life in a sad, dead-end way. He sounded several lifetimes away from the superstar who was known for his wild sack dances on the field and squiring model/actress Brigitte Nielsen around in stretch limos off of it.


TSA Head Refuses to Stay on for Trump

TSA head refuses to stay on with TrumpTSA administrator Peter Neffenger spent Thursday saying his goodbyes after only a year and a half at the post, a casualty of the disarray in some parts of the Trump transition process. Team Trump called him only in the last two weeks to ask him to stay—too late to change his plans, U.S. officials tell The Daily Beast.

Widely hailed as competent and innovative by Congress, Neffenger is a retired admiral and a political independent. He’s also the fifth chief of the Transportation Security Administration in as many years. Congressional sources disappointed over his departure say they may draft legislation to set terms for the TSA role, akin to the 10-year term for the FBI director.


Donald Trump Sworn In as President of the US

Trudmp inaugurationDonald J. Trump on Friday was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, ushering in an era of uncertainty for a nation still divided by a bruising election.

Trump has promised to deliver on an ambitious agenda of robust job growth powered by protectionist trade policies, the repeal of Obamacare, an aggressive posture against terrorism and Islamic extremism, and the restoration of America as a formidable world power. But he has yet to fulfill his pledge to win over skeptics and comes into the White House with historically low approval ratings.


Anti-Trump protests erupt across the country

Anti-trump protestsProtestors demonstrating against President Donald Trump mobilized police and disrupted public transportation systems across the nation Friday even as Trump took the oath of office at the Capitol.

San Jose’s Valley Transportation Authority said it expected two planned demonstrations on Friday to disrupt bus and light rail service. In Portland, TriMet said it had prepared to suspend service to downtown areas to avoid protests.

In San Francisco, the Bay Area Rapid Transit system said it would add extra cars to its trains to allow protestors to get to planned demonstrations in the city.

Appeals court tells judge to allow transgender name changes

Georgia Appeals CourtA Georgia appeals court has overturned a lower court judge's orders denying legal name changes to two transgender men.

The Georgia Court of Appeals on Friday issued an opinion saying that Columbia County Superior Court Judge J. David Roper abused his discretion when he denied the name change petitions.

LGBT rights group Lambda Legal last year filed appeals on behalf of Rowan Elizabeth Feldhaus, whose birth name was Rebeccah Elizabeth Feldhaus, and Andrew Norman Baumert, whose given name was Delphine Renee Baumert.
