In the wake of last weekend’s horror and tragedy, let us finally, finally rip off the veneer that Trump’s affinity for white supremacy is distinct from the Republican agenda of voter suppression, renewed mass incarceration and the expulsion of immigrants.” Finally, finally, someone on the Left U.S. Navy admiral: USS John S.

John Richardson said Monday. The incident, which occurred early Monday morning in Southeast Asian waters, resulted in 10 American sailors lost at sea and “significant damage” to the USS John S. McCain, an Arleigh Burke'class destroyer attached to the Navy’s Seventh Fleet, according to a Navy statement.

The 18'21 August poll found that 54% of adults said Confederate monuments “should remain in all public spaces”, while 27% said they “should be removed from all public spaces”. Another 19% said they “don’t know”. Responses to the poll were sharply split along racial and party lines, however, with whites and Republicans largely supportive of preservation. Democrats and minorities were more likely to support removal.

With this decision, the parents wanted to show their thankfulness to the chancellor,” said a spokeswoman for St. Franziskus Hospital in the western German city of Muenster. Angela Merkel Muhammed was born on Aug. 16, measuring 21 inches and weighing 8.6 pounds, he said, adding the girl was the parents’ fifth child.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Tuesday praised Kim Jong Un´s rogue nation for its &#34;restraint&#34; on nuclear weapons, even after Kim has spent two weeks threatening the U.S. with mass destruction. Tillerson said he was pleased that North Korea had not run any missile launches since the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted sanctions against the communist country. &#34;We hope that this is the beginning of this signal that we´ve been looking for —that they are ready to restrain their level of tension,&#34; Tillerson told reporters.

Monsters such as Nero, of the first'century A.D. Julio'Claudian dynasty, or the later psychopaths Commodus and Caracalla, were flattered by toadies when alive — only to be despised the moment they dropped. After unhinged emperors were finally killed off, the sycophantic Senate often proclaimed a damnatio memoriae (a “damnation of memory”). Prior commemoration was wiped away, thereby robbing the posthumous ogre of any legacy and hence any existence for eternity.

McClatchy reported that the group of White House officials have suggested using so-called ´Dreamers´ as a bargaining chip, in order to check off some of the president´s campaign promises on immigration, including the wall, additional detention facilities, an E-verify system for employers and cuts to legal immigration. However, such a move would break another campaign promise, as candidate Donald Trump had pledged Companies Who Bailed on Trump Councils Have History of Offshoring Jobs Tue, 22 54 2017 07:54:03 GMT c489f5b00db8c5749ea74b7699f2f009be1741a0 Breitbart Texas, by John Binder Posted By: earlybird- Tue, 22 54 2017 07:54:03 GMT The CEOs who fled President Donald Trump following his response to violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, last week have a history of importing foreign labor. <b>Intel Corporation</b> The most obvious importer of foreign workers via the H'1B visa and outsourcer of American jobs is Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, who left Trump’s now'defunct American Manufacturing Council, Breitbart Texas reported. Since 2013, the Intel Corporation attempted to import more than 8,000 H'1B workers.

A spokesman for the Patriots, Stacey James, told USA Today that Trump told Kraft during their White House visit how he was honored the Patriots were the first team to visit during his presidency. The team gifted Trump a jersey and a helmet during the April trip, but Kraft wanted to do more. James said Trump´s customized ring is the same as what the Patriots players and staff received for winning the Super Bowl.

Speaking at a news conference at Changi Naval Base on Tuesday evening, Adm Swift said it is too early to tell how many bodies were found in the damaged US Navy destroyer. &#34;We have discovered other bodies during the diving on McCain today, but it’s premature to say how many How Google is secretly recording You through your mobile, monitoring millions of conversations every day and storing the creepy audio files Tue, 22 35 2017 05:35:10 GMT 71f97e3605e6b80a824ca03462acbf2023bcbf60 The Sun [UK], by Margi Murphy Posted By: Maryland_Patriot- Tue, 22 35 2017 05:35:10 GMT Did you know that Google has been recording you without your knowledge?

Lee. (Snip)Unfortunately for the president’s critics, what was obvious to them whenever this completed narrative reached them could not have been obvious to President Trump when he began to speak at 3:35 p.m..

This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro'America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know.

Trump’s speech, in which he pledged to increase the number of troops in the 16'year'war, was the first since the departure of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and confirmed the fears of many on the right that without a strong nationalist voice in the West Wing, the President would revert to the same old fare that Americans had Judge throws out $458,000 condo sale, says Clearwater attorney tricked bidders Tue, 22 14 2017 05:14:00 GMT b868d99c8445320b1fddd515394e732bf126c97d Tampa Bay Times, by Susan Taylor Martin Posted By: Hazymac- Tue, 22 14 2017 05:14:00 GMT CLEARWATER — Pinellas County Circuit Judge Jack St. Arnold on Monday threw out the $458,100 sale of a gulf'front condo because of what he called an &#34;unscrupulous&#34; and &#34;conniving&#34; scheme to trick bidders at a foreclosure auction. His ruling means that the owners of Orlando Realty Group will get back the money they bid on what turned out to be a second mortgage held by a company connected to Clearwater attorney Roy Skelton.

The Zapad (´West´) exercise, which occurs every four years, will take place in Belarus and western Russia.
