Syria’s first lady smiles her way
through hubby’s bloody civil war

Hot Air, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 4/15/2017 6:48:53 AM

According to an Instagram account bearing her name, the British-born wife of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad is enduring that country’s bloody civil war in good health, safety and nice clothes. Asma al-Assad is shown there in legions of touching photos chatting with women, reading to children, watching her husband sign documents and comforting families reportedly freed recently from rebel-held territory. Each entry carries the hashtag #WeLoveYouAsma. [Snip] It seems likely that rather than being a genuine, hands-on personal account, hers is run by the regime seeking to present an alternate reality of normalcy to the ghastly photos of gassed children

I wrote yesterday that she seems to be like the Mafia wives we’ve heard about. Living luxurious, relatively normal lives with their children, never questioning what their husbands do. With news control, maybe ignorant of all they do and have done?

Or perhaps she is kept drugged?

She is not drop dead stunning like Melania, but she is very attractive. Raised in the UK. A look at a page of her photos shows a woman who does not do big smiles, and her eyes look sad.

Americans have been treated to public profanity a number of times in recent years. Most notably this involved then-Vice President Joe Biden caught telling Barack Obama on national TV that his signing of ObamaCare was “a big f****** deal.” As it turned out, of course, ObamaCare became a big f*****-up deal, as have Republican efforts this year to repeal that piece of, uh, paper. [Snip] Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez and senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Kamala Harris, among others, have demonstrated their linguistic liberation, mainly with the f-word. But, turns out, they probably should be careful. A new Harris

Four convicted felons seek

Here’s an interesting fact: Half of the eight candidates in Detroit’s mayoral primary are convicted felons, mainly for crimes involving drugs, firearms or assault with intent to commit murder. Could make for exciting council meetings. Other than that, Tuesday’s voting in the nation’s 23rd largest city is just another contest among Democrats for municipal control of a decaying big city. Democrats run two-thirds of the United States’ 100 largest cities, including New York, Los Angeles and, of course, Chicago. All are experiencing serious problems and with the

While political Washington indulged its obsession over the latest toxic Trump turmoil, North Korea launched another ICBM test, the second in July and 12th this year, in its relentless quest for a weapon of mass destruction to deliver upon the United States. This is not an idle mid-summer fantasy. [Snip] The communist North Korea could be ready by this time next summer or soon after. That could be wrong too. Washington politicians don’t really seem interested in doing much of anything, let alone discuss existential threats these days, given the joys of arcane procedural votes and their next summer vacation,

Great news for landlords. Contrary to the longstanding alleged American dream, dramatically fewer Americans are owning their own home. Home ownership rates nationally peaked in 2007 at 73%. Today, they’ve plummeted to 63%, a dramatic shift involving many billions of dollars. This has occurred in all regions and income groups across the country. Except among senior citizens.

While a White House aide indulges in profane tantrums, Republicans and Democrats in Congress have finally found something they can agree on — sanctioning Russia. And Iran and North Korea. Again. Sanctioning people and countries is big these days. It looks like you’re doing something firm, even though sanctions and sanctions upon sanctions haven’t really accomplished anything.

For an entire generation now, Americans have awarded the country’s volunteer military force with the highest confidence rating of any national institution. Congress, on the other hand, not so much, based on its chronic perceived inability to perform the work widely seen as necessary. Oh, look! More examples this week [Snip] So, what if anything could the institution of Congress, whose job approval is mired at or below 20%, learn from studying the institution of the U.S. military? Not that it would, mind you. But if Congress

   

 

  


 
Trump is his own communications

President Trump almost made it through an entire week driving a positive administration jobs message – Made in America. Almost. But Friday morning comes. He couldn’t control himself until Monday. So, out comes Trump with a major White House appointment that prompts Sean Spicer, the embattled PR face of an embattled administration, to resign. And that ignites a media firestorm about White House turmoil that incinerates another week’s painstakingly-orchestrated policy message. [Snip] Trump knows he knows more than his communications professionals, which makes their team messages garbled and incomprehensible and their jobs untenable. Not only does he know more, he

The Republican Party in Congress could be on the verge of losing the 2018 midterm elections 16 months before they happen. Since 2010, the GOP has been vowing and planning and stunting to repeal the Affordable Care Act, that transformative legislative Frankenstein that Democrats crammed through Congress in 2010 without a single Republican vote. [Snip] The GOP crowd now looks like that little circus car disgorging clown after clown after clown, each one honking his horn and offering a personal version of Obamacare repeal. Now comes time to repeal and replace it for real and, well, golly gee, it’s kinda

No one ever accused Americans of being consistent when it comes to views on morality and marriage. So, it probably shouldn’t be surprising that a new Gallup Survey of adults finds that a record proportion of Americans now finds divorce “morally acceptable.” While the nation’s divorce rate actually drops. Since 2001, Gallup has found a 14% jump among Americans who find divorce morally acceptable. Increasing acceptance was especially prominent among older Americans, traditionally the most opposed. It wasn’t always this way. Some

After a wobbly couple of months, the nation’s new job creation appeared to get going again in June with some 222,000 new workers employed, more than expected. The new report also adjusted upward estimates of newly-created jobs from previous months.

President Trump, who owns more hotel rooms than you’ll ever search on Trivago, could not get one for his stay in Hamburg during this week’s G-20 summit.

VATICAN CITY — Two close associates of Pope Francis have accused American Catholic ultraconservatives of making an alliance of “hate” with evangelical Christians to back President Trump, further alienating a group already out of the Vatican’s good graces. The authors, writing in a Vatican-vetted journal, singled out Stephen K. Bannon, Mr. Trump’s chief strategist, as a “supporter of an apocalyptic geopolitics” that has stymied action against climate change and exploited fears of migrants and Muslims with calls for “walls and purifying deportations.” The article warns that conservative American Catholics have strayed dangerously into the deepening political polarization in the United States.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama openly shared her disdain for life inside the White House. She even went so far as to demean it as a house “built by slaves” and that residing there was like “living in a cave.” Perhaps that has something to do with the fact the People’s House is now literally crumbling in disrepair as outlined today by the AP: Besides the replacement of the West Wing’s heating and cooling system, repairs are also to be made to the steps on the South Portico, the side of the White House facing the National Mall.

A pair of Chick-fil-A customers in Florida were unsatisfied with their local restaurant’s service — so they decided to trash the place on their way out. The incident took place on Monday night at a Chick-fil-A in the River City neighborhood of Jacksonville, Fla., according to Allison Music, a witness who shared footage of the ordeal on Facebook. In her post, Music explained that she was waiting for an order at Chick-fil-A when she saw a teenage boy arguing about his order with the staff “for a good 15 or 20 mins.” She also said the manager had locked up

Michael Moore doubled down Thursday on his suggestion that the Democratic Party should run a celebrity in the 2020 presidential election, this time telling the co-hosts of The View that Tom Hanks would be a great candidate for the position. In a sit-down on the ABC talk show Thursday morning, the left-wing documentary filmmaker and activist said Democrats should run a “beloved American” in the 2020 race, preferably a celebrity. “The celebrities on our side, first of all, are smart,” Moore said. “If we ran Al Franken, run Tom Hanks… Who wouldn’t vote for Tom Hanks for President of the

I pray this is a joke. If it is satire, The Onion should ask for permission to reprint immediately. President Trump delivered an address to law enforcement last Friday, which triggered some progressive snowflakes because he joked about our police roughing up MS-13 gang members. It was a joke. If you can’t catch on when Trump is joking and when he’s not, I don’t know what to tell you. They’re often rather self-evident that he’s not actually hoping police are overly physical with detained suspects, but let’s move on to this part of this Washington Post op-ed about the matter. The

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) ripped President Trump´s handling of the Afghanistan War on Thursday, saying the White House has failed to provide strategic guidance since Trump took office. Less than a week after casting the decisive vote against Trump-backed ObamaCare repeal legislation, McCain defended the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan from criticism by Trump, saying on twitter "Our commanders-in-chief, not our commanders in the field" were responsible for the failure in the country. While McCain blamed past administrations for the problems in Afghanistan, he said in a statement that the lack "of successful policy and strategic guidance from Washington" had continued into

Since the election there has been an unprecedented attempt to unwind the election result. Events have accelerated on several fronts lately with attempts from outside and within to paralyze the Trump administration. What started as a collective media freakout on Election Night 2016 quickly progressed to an unprecedented attempt to intimidate Electors into changing their votes. Some Democrats announced, even before Trump took office, plans to impeach him, and Democrat politicians fed media-driven Russia collusion conspiracy theories for which they knew there was no evidence. Chuck Schumer, for example, used the alleged fact of Donald Trump being under FBI investigation as an

INDIANAPOLIS - Chris Ballard loves competition; that’s been his mantra since the day he arrived in Indianapolis, stockpiling players who will compete for the many open spots on the Colts’ half-formed roster. Given that desire, and given the fact we have absolutely no idea when Andrew Luck might return, this next move makes so much sense, it hurts my brain just to write it: Go sign Colin Kaepernick. Go sign him now, before somebody else steps up to the plate, like a Miami Dolphins team that is now dealing with starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s knee injury. Or the Baltimore Ravens,

A bipartisan pair of senators has introduced a bill aimed at protecting Robert Mueller, the special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, should President Trump decide to fire him. The bill, introduced Thursday by Sens. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., and Chris Coons, D-Del., would allow a special counsel who is removed to challenge the firing in court. There, a three-judge panel would decide whether the special counsel´s removal was justified. If the judges decide there was no good cause for firing, the person would be reinstated as special counsel over the wishes of the president.
