Watch: Bill Maher slams the Obama-hating 2016 Republican candidates at this week’s debate
Debate has grown over the US Confederate flag, following a recent terrorist attack on a church in South Carolina which left nine black worshipers dead.
Momentum to take down the flag quickly grew after the deadly shooting.
A two-thirds majority vote in both chambers of the General Assembly would be necessary for the measure to reach Haley’s desk.
The effort to remove the Confederate flag from the South Carolina statehouse grounds is continuing to ride the strong momentum.
The governor is for it. Nearly all state senators are backing it. And petitioners are collecting signatures by the hundreds of thousands.
A final Senate vote of 36-3 sent the bill to the House late Tuesday morning.

Telecoms magnate Slim is the world’s second-richest man, with a net worth of around $71.1 billion, according to Forbes. Trump is at number 405 on the list, worth $4.1 billion.
The latest development comes as a television company controlled by Mexican billionaire, Carlos Slim, has cancelled a project with Trump that was said to be worth millions.
This is the third company to cut ties with Trump, who is seeking the Republican nomination for the November 2016 presidential election.
Ora TV, the production company co-founded by Slim and TV personality Larry King and funded by Slim’s America Movil, had been working with Trump for several months on the project.
As a result of Trump’s comments, NBC removed Trump’s “Miss USA” from their programming following in the footsteps of Spanish-language broadcaster Univision, who said it would not air the “Miss USA” pageant.
Macy’s Department stores have also decided to discontinue their business relationship with Mr. Trump and will phase-out the Trump menswear collection, which has been sold at Macy’s since 2004.” Macy’s issues a statement “We are disappointed and distressed by recent remarks about immigrants from Mexico. We do not believe the disparaging characterizations portray an accurate picture of the many Mexicans, Mexican Americans and Latinos who have made so many valuable contributions to the success of our nation.
An Ora TV spokesperson released the following statement,
“Trump was totally out of line…working with someone so closed-minded was not going to work.”
He added that the comments were racist and hurtful.
Lets take a look at who Carlos slim helu is …
Carlos Slim Helu is one of the three richest men in the world, despite changes in the Mexican telecom landscape, where he has prospered greatly over the past two decades. A new anti-monopoly law is driving some of the shifts. In June 2014, he spent $5.6 billion to buy out AT&T’s 8.3% stake in pan-Latin American wireless carrier America Movil — by far Slim’s most valuable asset. He and his children now own 62% of the company. AT&T then became an America Movil competitor in Mexico, when it purchased wireless carrier Grupo Iusacell from Mexican billionaire Ricardo Salinas Pliego in January 2015. Outside of telecom, Slim took private his listed real estate company, Innmeubles Carso, paying minority shareholders $450 million in December 2014. A month later, he became the largest shareholder of The New York Times, with a nearly 17% stake, by exercising warrants to buy more shares. Slim also holds a controlling interest in industrial conglomerate Grupo Carso, financial venture Grupo Financiero Inbursa and infrastructure development and operating company Ideal.

Forbes Talks To The Richest Person In The World
In the wake of what is the Charleston church shooting
America paints a picture of terrorism all over the world but allows it to exist on our very own soil for years an turns a blind eye to radical groups like the KKK, Council of Conservative Citizens and many others groups that carry the similar message of pure evil racism, hate groups that target blacks, Jews, Hispanics, East Asians and Middle Easterns. These groups should be looked at as terrorist and no different then how america views al qaeda or any terrorist group out there that poses a threat to Americans. But some how are allowed to exist in this country which is sad and the real problem.
Nas speaks on these issues below
America has spent so much time, money & resources fighting wars abroad and completely fell asleep at the wheel of the war brewing within our cities, neighborhoods & blocks. We are supposed to stand for freedom & equal opportunity. That’s supposed to mean MORE than just words but the actions of late just don’t speak to what we are supposed to stand for. This is BIGGER than BLACK and WHITE. This is about America selling a false dream. Now we’ve obviously progressed since the inception of this nation but we took our eye off the ball and it feels as though things are moving backwards. As a black man, I find it difficult to understand that our biggest export (our American culture) comes from us. The people in the streets… The way the world dresses, talks, what they listen to, what they watch… That all comes from us. How can we be the ones responsible for America’s biggest export & fear for our lives like we shouldn’t belong here. I don’t have all the answers nor do I believe anyone does, but we need to have conversations around how to improve as a nation. How do we show any ounce of progress that keeps hope alive. This is too big of a problem to be solved overnight but there needs to be some questions answered to get things back on the track of righteousness. Amazing people died for this country. We owe it to the past, present & future to come together and move this country in the right direction. This is my home just like it is anyone else’s. RIP CRISPUS ATTUCKS. FIRST MAN TO DIE IN AMERICA’s FREEDOM WAR & HE WAS BLACK! GOD BLESS EVERY OUNCE OF INNOCENT BLOOD SHED FOR THIS NATION & MY FAMILY.
CHINX DRUGZ : BIO
Born Lionel Pickens in Queens, New York, Chinx has been paving his musical path since an early age. Surrounded and influenced by some of the greats of our era, his sound is “I don’t want to fit in,” he says. “I want people to respect my music. I have the drive to be original and to stay true to who I am as a person and as an artist, and not create a gimmick with my artistry.”
Listening to artists like NWA on the West Coast and Wu-Tang and Nas in the East, growing up Chinx wanted to emulate the freedom of expression that his favorite artists embodied with their lyrics. Raised in Far Rockaway, he was surrounded by a level of poverty that drove people into drugs, the ghetto and the streets. While divulging into that lifestyle personally, music gave him an outlet to convey his experiences, his fears and his ambition. An ambition that still drives him today as a father and as a musician.
During the early years of his career, Chinx formed a friendship with the late Stack Bundles, also from Far Rockaway. The two created The Riot Squad and continued to record together for several years. In 2005 Chinx was incarcerated and it was during his time inside that Bundles lost his life. His death was heavy not just for Chinx but for fans everywhere, that had a profound respect and admiration for Stack Bundles as a person and as a musician. As personal as this loss was, it awakened the musical child in Chinx, who didn’t want the legacy that Bundles had built over the years to disappear with his death. When Chinx was released from prison, he started focusing on really making an impact with his music. Meeting French Montana through Stack Bundles’ close friend Max B, the two fashioned a genuine alliance. “We were making music together at Max’s house,” Chinx says about first working with French.
“I guess they say real recognizes real, and what is understood doesn’t need to be explained. We never talked about doing business on any level, we just kept recording after Max got locked up and we were just putting out the music that we were making.”
The work that was released generated a wave that grew to become the Coke Boys movement.
With the release of his “I’m A Coke Boy” record featuring French Montana in 2012, Chinx created a wave that perpetuated his popularity not only in the United States, but internationally as well, and solidified his position in the music industry.
Produced by Harry Fraud (who also produced for Mac Miller, French Montana, Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa) “I’m a Coke Boy” was released on Chinx’s ‘Cocaine Riot 2’ mixtape, and was embraced by media, tastemakers, and most importantly his fans, with positive reviews all across. The song quickly became a club favorite and in January 2013 Funkmaster Flex premiered “I’m A Coke Boy Remix” on Hot97 with verses from Rick Ross and Puff Daddy, which took over New York radio for the best part of the year.
Along with other members of the Coke Boys, Chinx has been a part of several projects including the Coke Boys mixtape series, with the last edition receiving rave reviews online from magazines like TheFader, XXL, Complex, Vibe, RapRadar and many more. Independently, Chinx has also dropped his own mixtape trilogy titled Cocaine Riot. The last tape, Cocaine Riot 3 dropped in early 2013 featuring artists like Juicy J, Roscoe Dash, Lil Durk, Ace Hood, DJ Khaled, Rick Ross, Puff Daddy and of course the rest of his Coke Boys family including French Montana. The tape garnered heavy attention with over half a million downloads online.
Cocaine Riot 3 isn’t completely a departure from Chinx, but rather than being boxed into one sound, he uses Cocaine Riot 3 to prove that he is a complete artist.” – Mixtape Daily, MTV
Currently Chinx is working on his first EP to be released in late 2013. The story of Chinx is one of humble beginnings and an undying ambition to strive towards greatness and fulfill a higher purpose. The tribulations of his youth and unfortunate dispositions of his early adulthood have sculpted him into a much wiser man, all while maintaining a certain undeniable charisma that continues to draw new fans in everyday.
