2,000 Veterans To Form 'Human Shields' To Protect Standing Rock Protesters
HP | Taryn Finley | 11/30/16

More than 2,000 veterans have agreed to act as "human shields" to protect protesters from December 4 to 7, according to a Facebook event. They launched the effort, called Veterans Stand for Standing Rock on Tuesday and after months of protesters clashing with the police over the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline.

The same day the group announced its initiative, state officials threatened to impose fines and block supplies from reaching a nearby camp where protesters reside. Though officials backed away from the threat, Gov. Jack Dalrymple's mandatory, immediate order for evacuation due to "anticipated harsh weather conditions," announced Monday, still stands. ...

HP | Daniel Marans | 11/30/16

... Mnuchin and his partners took over troubled bank IndyMac in 2008, renaming it One West and ramping up home foreclosures with a disproportionate focus on the reverse mortgages typically held by elderly Americans. Civil rights groups have accused the bank of racially discriminatory lending and business practices.

"There's a scene in 'Pretty Women' where Richard Gere goes up to the salesman on Rodeo Drive and says: 'We need a little sucking up here,'" Gingrich said during an appearance on The Laura Ingraham Show on Wednesday.

*DR | An Update On The North Dakota Pipeline Protests And Oil Pipeline Safety (12/01/16) [1hr]
The Governor of North Dakota has ordered the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and other Native American Dakota Access Pipeline protestors to evacuate from the federal land where many have been camped out since last summer. The protestors face blizzard conditions but have, so far, refused to move. At issue is a nearly completed 1,100 mile pipeline designed to carry oil from northwestern North Dakota to Illinois. It's slated to tunnel under a lake less than a mile from the Standing Rock Sioux reservation which, protestors contend, poses a threat to their water supply. An update on the protest and its political implications.
*DR | President-Elect Trump And U.S. Trade (12/01/16) [1hr]
Core supporters of President-elect Donald Trump and many who supported Senator Bernie Sanders for president agree on at least one issue. They both believe that globalization and free trade deals have undermined American workers. Now with Donald Trump heading to the White House, prospects for U.S. participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership have all but evaporated. There are also many who believe he'll make good on his promises to make substantial changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement and impose higher tariffs on other foreign-made goods. Join us to discuss what less free trade could mean for the American workers and the U.S. economy
