    Also owns the Portland Trailblazers. I remember when I lived in Seattle he lowered the price of like 8k seats at the old Kingdome to $10 ea. So a full season ticket cost you exactly $100. When I got to work that morning it took all of about 15 minutes before like 6 of us got together and bought a block of seats. I think the next year they went up to $15 ea then eventually like $37 ea at the new stadium. RIP.

    Elizabeth Warren's Pow Wow Chow 'Cherokee' recipes were word for word COPIES of famous FRENCH chef's techniques

    Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is yet again in hot water after new allegations have surfaced that she plagiarized her 'Cherokee' recipes in the book Pow Wow Chow from the New York Times and other publications.

    Radio talk show host Howie Carr released damning evidence that appears to confirm that Mrs Warren's weren't handed down from generation to generation, they were picked up in the newspaper.

    The 1984 cookbook Pow Wow Chow was edited by Mrs Warren's cousin Candy Rowsey and is billed as a collection of recipes from the Five Civilized Tribes.

    Mrs Warren's recipes are featured alongside her mother's directions for sugar cake and her two children's recipe for peach cobbler.

    Mrs Warren's recipes include herbed tomatoes and a crab with tomato mayonnaise dressing, among other dishes.

    But it appears that at least three of the five recipes featured in the book were fakes, according to an investigation by Mr Carr.

    The two recipes for Crab with Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing and Cold Omelets with Crab Meat appear to be word for word copies of a French chef's design.

    'When I was chef at Le Pavilion it enjoyed a considerable esteem in America, and the owner, Henri Soule, had one particular specialty that he would ask to have prepared for his pet customers. The dish was a great favorite of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and Cole Porter,' wrote chef Pierre Franey in an article syndicated by the New York Times News Service on August 22, 1979.

    She's one of the biggest phoney, liar, d-bag's in the political arena. She should be in prison with the rest of the Crooked Clinton Cartel.

    Mexican government sends federal police to intercept caravan of U.S.-bound migrants

    MEXICO CITY — The government of Mexico dispatched two 727 Boeing planes filled with federal police officers to its southern border with Guatemala on Wednesday to intercept a caravan of Central American migrants who are trying to reach the U.S. border.

    The Interior and Foreign Relations ministries said in a joint statement that any migrant in the caravan without proper immigration papers would be arrested and “returned to their country of origin.” Those with proper documents or wishing to apply for asylum would be allowed to enter Mexico.

    The caravan of migrants set out last week from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, which has long been one of the hemisphere's most violent cities with a murder rate ranking among the highest in the world.

    The group of migrants swelled to an estimated 4,000 people even as President Donald Trump has condemned them and threatened to cut aid to Honduras if government officials do not cooperate in preventing their trip to the U.S.
