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

Hot Air, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

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.

What’s missing in Congress right now?
Just leadership and courage
McClatchy Newspapers, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article

Congress returns from another half-month vacation this week to confront a national job approval rating wallowing in the low double-digits. Hard to understand why it’s that high. Both the Republican and Democratic parties have slipped into their own brand of do-nothing dysfunction. With the dearth – or death – of political moderates on Capitol Hill, each political party has strutted into its own distant ideological corner to utter daily talking points to rally its fervent faithful to no end whatsoever, fundraising aside.

The hunt is on for the inside leakers

We should probably have expected, with the publication this week of a tell-all book called “Shattered,” that the decaying remnants of Hillary Clinton’s defunct campaign would launch a witch hunt (no pun intended). They’re seeking to hunt down the identities of the high-ranking campaign staff that fed all these revealing, juicy anecdotes and details to a pair of journalists. [Snip] The stricken campaign was afflicted with disorganization, over-confidence, enmity and Bill Clinton. The campaign had no central message and, worse, it featured an unpleasant but clueless Hillary Clinton, who confided to a close friend, “I don’t understand what’s happening in

There seem to be a fair number of people these days loudly complaining that the unpredictable presidential candidate named Donald J. Trump has become the unpredictable president named Donald J. Trump. Imagine that. Less than three months into their standard-bearer’s presidency, Trump supporters openly fret that the man who made billions selling customers and investors everything from condos to casinos, from steaks to university degrees, is changing course on them. Just like a real pol. Of course, the 70-year-old real estate baron isn’t a real pol. Most pols have some kind of ideological tethering

Why do you attend church? Gallup

I would have thought maybe music. But at this time of Passover and Easter, Gallup just did a new poll and found that the most appealing part of attending church for a large majority of Americans is something else entirely. It makes sense when you think about it. But music, in fact, is way down the list. The overwhelmingly most important reason that people attend church is for the sermon and related talks to learn more about the scriptures and how religion connects to their own life. There are interesting twists buried in the survey that could help churches and

An extremely large percentage of America’s 326.5 million citizens did not run for president last year. Only one of us non-candidates, however, decided to write a new book to explain why. If you’re one of the many Americans who hadn’t thought to wonder why Elizabeth Warren did not run for president — or don’t really care — join the crowd. Warren´s new book about her non-candidacy comes out next week and would-be buyers are not yet lining up. The book is heavily biographical, which means Warren is definitely running for the presidential nomination of what’s left of the Democrat Party

London’s tabloid Daily Mail has admitted in court and a written settlement that its 2016 story implying Melania Trump previously worked for an escort service was totally false. The innuendo will cost the publication almost $3 million in damages and fees, which might be considered a bargain given that the now-First Lady had sought $150 million from the publication and its website in lawsuits filed in the United States and in Britain. “We accept that these allegations about Mrs. Trump are not true,” said the newspaper in a joint statement, “and we retract and withdraw ....

As public speakers go, Obama aide Valerie Jarrett comes pretty cheap. She lined up a commencement gig next month at Chicago’s Northeastern Illinois University for 30-grand. By all estimates, she’s a multi-millionaire anyway, although the Iranian-born American has spent most of her career in government. And the Obama adviser has few expenses, no apartment rent, for instance. This winter she joined Barack and Michelle together living in that $5 million mansion they’re renting in Washington.

Swearing has likely been a social phenomenon since an early caveman caught his thumb between a rock and a hard place. Yes, it was long considered uncouth and a certain sign of a weak vocabulary. But as society has coarsened in recent times, so has the language, even in public. The ubiquity of cell cameras and these d****** recording devices has captured the foul moments for all to hear. You may recall back in 2010 at an historic bill-signing the Vice President of the United States, Joseph R. Biden, on national TV muttering into the president’s ear and a live

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. The Republican president’s administration and two California governments that sued over the order disagreed about its scope. San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. But an attorney for the Justice Department,

It was a message repeated several times at a Democrat news conference Tuesday afternoon: Republicans, agree with us on a spending bill, or we’ll blame you for shutting down the government. And it appears that Republicans, who control all three branches of government, are listening: “Now last night, we received a bit of good news -- not just for Democrats but for the country – that the president is easing off his demands for a border wall in the government funding bill,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told the news conference. “The money is better used elsewhere,” Schumer said. “If the

Although President Donald J. Trump promised to defund Planned Parenthood if elected president, and the GOP House and Senate often claim that they want to defund the group, there reportedly is no language in the continuing resolution to fund the government through next September to defund Planned Parenthood, a group that has performed approximately 81,567 abortions since Trump´s inauguration on Jan. 20. That´s about 877 abortions per day, 36 per hour, or 1 every two minutes. The continuing resolution, or CR, is a funding mechanism that -- absent a budget and the regular appropriations process -- wraps federal spending into

The United Nations warned the Trump administration earlier this year that repealing ObamaCare without providing an adequate replacement would be a violation of multiple international laws, according to a new report. Though the Trump administration is likely to ignore the U.N. warning, The Washington Post reported the Office of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva sent an "urgent appeal" on Feb 2. The Post reported that the confidential, five-page memo cautioned that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would put the U.S. “at odds with its international obligations.” The warning was sent to the State Department and reportedly said

Dirty denim is the new black, selling for hundreds of dollars at pricy retailers like Nordstrom. Nordstrom is offering "heavily distressed," muddy jeans for $425 on its web site. Nordstrom says that the jeans "embody rugged, Americana workwear that´s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you´re not afraid to get down and dirty." The mud has a shiny sheen to it, as if the jeans were dragged down a filthy hill and left in a wet ditch. The filthy fashion statement isn´t actually new -- the jeans have been for sale at Nordstrom as well as at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue for quite some time.
