Big day for progressive candidates may
limit Democratic gains in the House
American Thinker, by Richard Baehr    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 5/16/2018 7:11:43 PM     Post Reply
Given historical trends on the number of seats lost by the president’s party in the first midterm, the number of GOP retirements this cycle, and redistricting in Pennsylvania ordered by the state’s supreme court and created by a university professor to favor Democrats, prospects for Democrats taking the House remain quite good. But not quite as good as they were the day before yesterday. Last night, progressive candidates had a good night in the Democratic primaries in the Keystone State, as well as springing an upset in the competitive 2nd district in Nebraska. In Pennsylvania, a state where Republicans now

Trump’s personal attorney solicited
$1 million from government of Qatar

Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, solicited a payment of at least $1 million from the government of Qatar in late 2016, in exchange for access to and advice about the then-incoming administration, according to several people with knowledge of the episode. The offer, which Qatar declined, came on the margins of a Dec. 12 meeting that year at Trump Tower between the Persian Gulf state’s foreign minister and Michael Flynn, who became Trump’s first national security adviser. Stephen K. Bannon, who became chief White House strategist, also attended, the people said. Cohen did not participate in the official

Washington - The Latest on the House vote on a bill that would expand private care for veterans (all times local): 6: 45 p.m. - The House has voted to give veterans more freedom to see doctors outside the Veterans Affairs health system. (Snip) The plan seeks to fulfill President Donald Trump´s promise to expand private care to veterans whenever they feel unhappy with VA health care. The long-awaited measure would change how veterans receive their medical care by allowing them to go to a private physician when they felt government-run VA medical centers couldn't provide the care they needed, with the approval of a VA

Trump asks Sessions to look into prosecuting
Oakland mayor who warned about ICE raid
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Aris Folley    Original Article

President Trump asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday to consider prosecuting the Democratic mayor of Oakland, Calif., after she warned hundreds of immigrants about an impending federal enforcement raid in February. The president said Mayor Libby Schaaf’s decision to warn her constituents ahead of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raid amounted to “obstruction of justice." (Snip) “You talk about obstruction of justice — I would recommend that you look into obstruction of justice for the mayor of Oakland, California, Jeff,” the president continued. “She advises thousand

The Big Idea: Tuesday was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day for Democratic moderates. The success of very liberal candidates in primaries across four states is causing a new bout of heartburn among party strategists in Washington, who worry about unelectable activists thwarting their drive for the House majority. But it also reflects a broader leftward lurch among Democrats across the country since President Trump took office. -- In Nebraska, a liberal social worker and political neophyte who built her campaign around “Medicare for All” scored a shocking upset in a Democratic primary to take on Rep.

The Great Somali Welfare Rip-Off

At the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, the carry-on bag bulged with $1 million in cash from a welfare rip-off scheme. The loot was headed for Somalia, some of it to regions controlled by the al Shabaab terrorist group, and this shipment was part of $100 million sent over the past year alone. This scheme was not uncovered by the New York Times, CNN, “Frontline” or any “investigative” journalist in the old-line establishment media. It came to light in “Millions of dollars in suitcases fly out of MSP, but why?” a story by Jeff Baillon of KMSP, a Fox News outlet in Minnesota and the subject of a Powerline blog by

Last week President Trump withdrew from the sham Iranian nuclear deal. President Trump knew the deal with the Iranian mullahs was not working. This was despite former Secretary of State John Kerry working against the Trump administration to salvage the weak deal with the Iranian regime. (Snip) Daniel Greenfield at FrontPage.com reported in 2015 on the Democrat senators who took money from the Iran US lobby before their vote to support the deal. Senator Markey has announced his support for the Iran deal that will let the terrorist regime inspect its own Parchin nuclear weapons research site, conduct uranium enrichment,

World sees US paying high diplomatic
price for Trump´s Iran deal withdrawal
Christian Science Monitor, by Peter Ford    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/16/2018 6:14:45 PM     Post Reply
At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, last January, President Trump insisted that his trademark "America First" policy “does not mean America alone.” But when Mr. Trump pulled the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal last week, reneging on an agreement negotiated and supported by close US allies, he displayed a bluntly unilateralist outlook that suggests he cares little whether or not the US is isolated. Whatever impact Trump´s decision has on Iran and its nuclear program, it has sent a message to governments around the globe about Washington´s willingness to live up to its word,

Downer spoke to FBI

Alexander Downer sat down for an interview with two FBI agents in London in 2016 to discuss potential Russian meddling in the US presidential election, a sensational New York Times report alleges. The revelation the Australian government broke with diplomatic protocol and allowed Mr Downer, then Australia´s high commissioner to the United Kingdom, to be interviewed by the FBI could damage Australia´s recently repaired relationship with US President Donald Trump. The New York Times first revealed late last year it was at a boozy night in May 2016, at London´s Kensington Wine Rooms, that Mr Trump´s then foreign policy adviser

WASHINGTON — Within hours of opening an investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia in the summer of 2016, the F.B.I. dispatched a pair of agents to London on a mission so secretive that all but a handful of officials were kept in the dark. Their assignment, which has not been previously reported, was to meet the Australian ambassador, who had evidence that one of Donald J. Trump’s advisers knew in advance about Russian election meddling. After tense deliberations between Washington and Canberra, top Australian officials broke with diplomatic protocol and allowed the ambassador, Alexander Downer, to sit for an

President Trump´s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, told Fox News Wednesday that special counsel Robert Mueller has told the president´s legal team he will follow Justice Department guidance and not seek an indictment against Trump. Giuliani, himself a former federal prosecutor and mayor of New York City, also told Fox that Mueller´s investigators have not responded to five information requests from the president´s team. That has forced Trump´s legal team to push off making a decision about whether the president will sit for an interview with the special counsel -- a decision they had hoped to reach by Thursday. The precedent that federal prosecutors

Meghan Markle’s father may not be able to attend the royal wedding on Saturday, but her mother has already landed in London with her dress in tow. Doria Ragland landed in Heathrow’s V.I.P. Windsor suite on Wednesday and was picked up by Markle’s assistant, Amy Pickerill, while handlers carried her luggage, including a Burberry garment bag. Burberry’s former director of communications, Isabel May, is a close friend of Markle’s and Burberry had been a front-runner to design the highly anticipated wedding gown before Ralph & Russo emerged as the odds-on favorite. Another guess has been Stella McCartney. All three options are

During an interview on Wednesday’s Today show with President John F. Kennedy’s grandson, Jack Schlossberg, about the JFK Library’s annual Profile in Courage Award, NBC anchor Savannah Guthrie worried that it was becoming difficult to find courageous politicians in the Trump era. “I mean, you know, you think about politics these days. I wonder if...there are fewer and fewer examples of courage. I mean, is the pool getting smaller from acts to choose from?,” she asked Schlossberg. He responded by pointing to young liberal activists: “No, I don’t think so. I’m optimistic about it....young people especially organizing around the country,

The United States and Gulf partners imposed additional sanctions on Lebanon’s Hezbollah leadership on Wednesday, targeting its top two officials, Hassan Nasrallah and Naim Qassem. The US Treasury Department said four other individuals were also sanctioned, as was the group ISIS in the Greater Sahara, which was designated as a foreign terrorist organization. It was the third round of sanctions announced by Washington since the United States pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal last week. Wednesday’s sanctions targeted members of the primary decision-making body of Hezbollah, Treasury said in a statement.

California Gov. Jerry Brown unleashed fury Wednesday in a series of tweets targeting President Trump, saying he was “not impressed” with the commander-in-chief’s stance on sanctuary law and that he was “lying on immigration.” (Tweet) The Democratic leader´s tweet storm comes the same day Trump held a roundtable discussion with California Republican lawmakers where he praised them for holding a “rebellion” against the state’s sanctuary policies. “Each of you has bravely resisted California’s deadly and unconstitutional sanctuary state laws,” Trump said at the White House. “You’ve gone through a lot, too,

Unnoticed in the blizzard of "Russian collusion" news coverage are the dramatic events in Malaysia where the ruling party lost its 60 year old grip on power over voter anger at what has been dubbed the largest financial scandal in history. It was "a stunning, sudden fall for Najib Razak, Malaysia´s ´Man of Steal´", wrote the New York Times. The fall was from the great height of nearly $5 billion abstracted from the 1Malaysia Development Berhad, the country’s state investment fund, known as 1MDB. “1MDB was a key factor in the election result,” said one NYT source. “The long-running scandal

What Was Said: The Washington Post and CNN have typically written false stories about our trade negotiations with China. Nothing has happened with ZTE except as it pertains to the larger trade deal. Our country has been losing hundreds of billions of dollars a year with China... — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 16, 2018 - The Facts: This contradicts other administration officials. In an earlier Twitter post, on Sunday, President Trump announced that he was considering easing restrictions on ZTE, a major Chinese telecommunications company.

Your odds are a little better vis-à-vis Latinas, but not by much—you are still about three times likelier to have The Syph than those small, brown, and friendly women who clean the City of Angels’ motel rooms for starvation wages. “STDs in L.A.

With the Mueller investigation floundering big time and Trump voters getting increasingly motivated to deliver a 2018 Midterm smackdown against the President’s political opponents, the Establishment Media pushed out yet another overly-hyped bag of tricks in the form of today’s “Trump Tower Smoking Gun” hoax. (Snip) In what appears to be yet another ill-advised attempt to revive the Russia hysteria of early 2017, the Senate Judiciary Committee has released more than 1,800 pages of interview transcripts with Donald Trump Jr. and others who attended a June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower that has become a key focus of the Mueller
