Prisoners´ family: Trump ´personally´
engaged Egypt to save aid workers

Washington Examiner, by Anna Giaritelli

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/21/2017 6:03:05 AM

An American woman and her Egyptian husband who had been imprisoned by the Egyptian government for three years arrived at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland late Thursday and will visit President Trump at the White House on Friday. Aya Hijazi and Mohamed Hassanein were among the group of six aid workers who were locked up in 2014 over allegations of child abuse and trafficking charges. After years of failed negotiations by the Obama administration, a family member of the couple credited Trump with "personally" stepping in to free him and his wife, as well as the four others. "It´s been

My guess is that the msm will give obama the credit rather than blaming him for supporting the muslim brotherhood in Egypt who imprisoned them.

At the risk of feeding the troll, Aya Hijazi is a natural born American citizen of legal immigrant parents. Her lawful husband by extention deserves respect.
Please peddle your xenophobia elsewhere.

Thank you #3...what a bizarre assumption from #2.

But, what an amazing story...one would think this would´ve been one of the lead stories on the morning shows, but not a peep.

Trump won´t tout his wins, so those that benefit will have to do it for him. Here is a man that knows how to be a President. It is a hard job to bring the USA back from years of attempted ruin by former Presidents. MAGA.

President Trump suggested Monday that his anti-government corruption mantra of “draining the swamp” already needs an overhaul. “Drain the Swamp should be changed to Drain the Sewer – it’s actually much worse than anyone ever thought, and it begins with the Fake News!” the president tweeted. “After 1 year of investigation with Zero evidence being found, Chuck Schumer just stated that ‘Democrats should blame ourselves, not Russia,’” he added in a separate tweet.During an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” Sen.

Corey Stewart, the former Virginia state chairman for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, is running for office again just one month after nearly becoming the Republican nominee in Virginia’s gubernatorial race. Now Stewart is running for the Senate against Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine. Stewart lost the GOP gubernatorial primary in Virginia to Ed Gillespie by a little over a percentage point in June. The former Trump campaign operative ran a very Trumpian campaign in that race, earning a lot of attention for his support of Confederate monuments and strong stances against illegal immigration. He plans on running on a similarly

Kellyanne Conway accused CNN of making a "business decision" to be against President Trump and his agenda Sunday morning. Conway leveled the claim during the first statement she made during an interview on "Reliable Sources" that proved to be rather contentious. She said the White House is happy to come on a network they see as an enemy. "We´re very happy to come and take questions from an outlet that has been incredibly unfair and systematically against this president, I guess you made a business decision to do so," Conway said.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer claims that the price of gas “never goes down” as gas prices hit record lows under the Trump administration. Schumer told George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week Sunday morning that gas prices can only go up, citing “huge companies buying up other big companies” as the cause of rising gas prices. “Gas prices are sticky — you know, when the domestic price goes, uh, when the, uh, price for oil goes up on the markets, it goes right up but it never goes down,” Schumer said. “How the heck did we let Exxon and Mobil

Rep.

Fuming and furious at the thought that Trump could end former President Barack Obama’s executive amnesties and impact 1.2 million who did not have “papers,” Gutierrez tore into Trump at Chicago’s Lincoln United Methodist Church, vowing to “resist” Trump non-violently with “everything possible.” Gutierrez emphasized that Trump—and not illegal immigrants—is the real criminal. “For me, the major criminal that exists in the United

NEW YORK- The New York Times says Fox News´ morning show "Fox & Friends" should apologize for what the newspaper calls a "malicious and inaccurate segment" about intelligence leaks and the Islamic State that aired Saturday. New York Times spokeswoman Danielle Rhoades Ha said Sunday that she requested an "on-air apology and tweet." The paper, she wrote, took issue with a Fox host on the segment saying that Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi "was able to sneak away under the cover of darkness after a New York Times story" in 2015 and a host´s comment that the U.S. government

Everything is proceeding according to a natural and predictable path. Mr. Scarmucci is now in charge of White House messaging, the focus can now look toward the Capitol and go on offense; the “Big Ugly” is very clearly on the horizon.

Colin Kaepernick is an NFL pariah. His stand for social justice by taking a knee during the national anthem last season as a member of the San Francisco 49ers has left him sitting on his couch as NFL training camps commence this week. His sideline satyagraha, designed to bring attention to civil rights violations and disparities in treatment from law enforcement in this country, makes him unemployable in a league that frowns upon individuality and values compliance and conformity from its players. Players for all 32 teams will have reported for camp by end of this week. It doesn’t look

While there are doubtless celebrations in Moscow, the news that Sen.

Shot down over North Vietnam, crippled by wounds and tortured, McCain refused early release and remained in his Hanoi prison, suffering for years beside his comrades. Returning home at last, on crutches, he dedicated himself to serving the people of Arizona and the

Authorities in Florida say that a group of teenagers recorded the drowning of a disabled man last week — and did nothing to help as they made fun of his struggles. Jamel Dunn, 32, of Cocoa, drowned in a retention pond July 9. His body was recovered July 14, two days after his fiancee reported him missing. Late last week, a friend of Dunn´s family came across the video on social media and forwarded it to authorities in Brevard County. In the video, which was published by the Florida Today newspaper Thursday, the teens can be heard laughing at Dunn

The outcome of O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing, broadcast live Thursday, was clear from the very beginning, when chairperson Connie Bisbee addressed him not as Inmate #1027820 but as a star. “I’m a little nervous, so bear with me,” she said. It was an odd ceding of power: After all, there’s no law requiring televised parole hearings. But Simpson doesn’t just occupy a singular nexus between celebrity and the criminal justice system; there’s never been a figure like him in American life. Bisbee wasn’t alone in being starstruck. Her colleague, parole board member Adam Engel, wore an NFL tie. When Bisbee mistakenly declared

An organization representing top state election officials is complaining it´s being kept in the dark by the federal government after a new report showed the Obama administration was quietly making extensive plans — including the possibility of deploying armed troops — in the case of an election day cyberattack or last-minute propaganda efforts from Russia. Time Magazine reported on a document it obtained showing the administration´s plans, which noted that state and local governments would have the primary jurisdiction, but called for the deployment of armed troops to counter a "significant incident."

On June 28th, President Trump convened a roundtable at the White House that included victims of crimes committed by undocumented immigrants. The event was part of the Administration’s push to pass several new immigration bills designed to, in Trump’s words, “close the dangerous loopholes exploited by criminals, gang members, drug dealers, killers, terrorists.” A regular theme of the Trump Administration’s messaging on immigration has been to present undocumented “bad hombres” as an immediate threat to the safety and cohesion of the American family unit. But some of Trump’s immigration policies, in themselves, have endangered families across America. The stories below,

When many middle-aged people think back to their childhood, they remember roaming the streets with their friends during long, hot summers. Our parents threw us out the door in the morning and instructed us not to come back until dinnertime. Often in charge of younger siblings, we strayed further than we should have, got into trouble and, by the end of the summer, had a collection of triumphs, scars and memories for life. But surely such memories are just nostalgia? The bit about the sun always shining probably is. Yet one thing is certain – the level of parental involvement

The Republican president has a job approval rating around 40 percent. The GOP has an unfavorability rating around 56 percent. And Republicans trail Democrats by nine points in an average of "generic ballot" polls. McCain´s opponents bridge the political divide following brain cancer diagnosis All of which makes it notable that the Republican National Committee is trouncing the Democratic National Committee when it comes to raising money, especially from small donors.The numbers are striking. In June, the RNC raised $13.5 million to the DNC´s $5.5 million. For 2017 so far, the RNC has raised $75.4 million to the DNC´s $38.2 million.
