President Trump and First Lady Melania escape DC scandalfest for nine-day foreign tour- the first since they entered the White House-with Jared and Ivanka in tow.* Daily Mail (UK), by David Martosko, Francesca Chambers
President Donald Trump has departed on a five-stop diplomacy tour through Europe and the Middle East that will cover 15,600 miles in the air over the course of nine days. The president, the first lady Melania Trump, Chief of staff Reince Priebus, Jared Kushner, and Trump´s eldest daughter, Ivanka, left the White House aboard Marine One just before 2pm Friday, EST. Fifteen minutes later, the group arrived at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. The first couple stopped and waved as they boarded Air Force One. They are currently on a 12-hour flight to Saudi Arabia. The chaos-courting leader of the
British reporters love to make up hysterical over reach of MSM lies. Comey contradicts his own narrative, because he really isn´t that bright and he lies all the time, so he can´t keep his stories straight.
"Scandalfest"? Name one real, fact based scandal that can be attributed to the Trump Administration. The only real scandal is the treasonous and seditious crimes being comitted by the democrat communist party members in Congress, in government positions and of course by the pond scum media.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) blasted Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Thursday for lying about President Donald Trump being under investigation when he knew otherwise. (Photo) Senator Grassley showed his disgust for the Democrat party, the fake news media and James Comey for continuing to mislead the public about President Trump being under investigation. James Comey refused to declare to the public that President Trump was not under investigation and Chuck Schumer continued to publicly state he was when he knew otherwise. Grassley: “After that meeting, I publicly called for Mr. Comey to tell the public what he had
This has been the week when the mainstream, aka Deep State, media have focused a lot of their ire on their new bête noire, Alex Jones. Conveniently, that tactic can serve a dual purpose: demonize one member of the so-called Alt Right, and you can link him with others whom you want to take down. Presto: Before you know it, you have a classic McCarthyite guilt by association express train running down the track. This collective guilt landed on a familiar target on Wednesday, June 21 when the increasingly predictable, and conspiratorial, Washington Post linked Alex Jones with Sean Hannity.
WASHINGTON- President Trump will host Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday for his first dinner at the White House with a foreign head of state, rolling out the red carpet as the administration seeks to strengthen ties with India, a major defense partner and ally. The dinner will be the first meeting between Mr. Trump and Modi. Both are flamboyant, combative leaders who came into office promising economic reforms on a wave of nationalist support. "I think these two leaders have a lot in common. For one, they are the world´s two most followed political leaders on social media,"
Unemployment among black Americans ages 16 years and over fell to 7.5 percent in May, its lowest level since December 2000. Black unemployment has been on the decline since February — falling from (February) 8.1, (March) 8.0, (April) 7.9, and (May) 7.5 percent, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The national unemployment rate in May was 4.3 percent, its lowest level since May 2001. Unemployment for black Americans has historically hovered below their white counterparts. The Great Recession drove black unemployment near Great Depression-era levels, reaching 16.8 percent in March 2010. While most Americans were feeling the
President Trump, First Lady Melania Trump and lots of family and friends will be attending Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s wedding tonight to his long-time fiancee Louise Linton. Secretary Wilbur Ross let the secret out last week when he was introducing Secretary Mnuchin at a conference in Washington. Wilburine said he and his wife “extend our congratulations and look forward to seeing you wed your dear fiancee, Louise Linton, on Saturday.” Secretary Mnuchin, 54, has been engaged to Ms. Linton, a 36-year-old Scottish model/actress, since 2015. Ms. Linton and Secretary Mnuchin were both involved in movie production companies. In late May,
Two of the Pentagon´s four specially reinforced ´Doomsday´ planes, designed to withstand the heat from a nuclear blast, have been grounded after being damaged by a tornado. The Air Force said Friday that two E4-B Boeing 747s were damaged when a tornado whipped through Nebraska´s Offutt Air Force Base with little advance warning on June 16. Built in the 1970s during the Cold War, the planes are essentially flying command centers that can refuel in the sky and are designed to remain airborne for days on end in times of crisis. The two damaged ´Doomsday´ planes were reportedly parked in
Hugh Hewitt‘s new MSNBC show debuted this morning with a pretty big get: CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Pompeo spoke with Hewitt about everything from Russia to Iran to cracking down on leaks, but he also talked about President Trump‘s interest in the intel reports he is provided: “President Obama consumed his intelligence in a different way. President Trump is incredibly demanding of the intelligence community, asks us incredibly difficult questions, and then counts on myself and other leaders in the IC to deliver those answers for him.” When Hewitt brought up the criticism from others that Trump seems “uninterested in
“As a nation, the U.S. has a deep and enduring connection to guns. Integrated into the fabric of American society since the country’s earliest days, guns remain a point of pride for many Americans. Whether for hunting, sport shooting or personal protection, most gun owners count the right to bear arms as central to their freedom,” reports a wide-ranging new poll from the Pew Research Center. It found that 74 percent of all U.S. gun owners say owning a gun is “essential to their freedom.” Another 73 percent of the owners say they could never see themselves “not owning a
Sen. Bernie Sanders is headlining a "don´t take our health care" rally tonight in Pittsburgh as a first stop on a three-state tour to mobilize opposition to the Senate health care bill, which the Vermont senator has called "by far the most harmful piece of legislation I have seen in my lifetime." Sanders teamed up with progressive advocacy organization MoveOn.org to hold rallies this weekend in Pittsburgh; Columbus, Ohio; and Charleston, West Virginia, with the goal of pressuring Republican senators in each of the states to oppose the legislation released Thursday. Republican Sens. Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania, Rob Portman in
The Hill headlines: “Dems push leaders to talk less about Russia.” Frustrated Democrats hoping to elevate their election fortunes have a resounding message for party leaders: Stop talking so much about Russia. Democratic leaders have been beating the drum this year over the ongoing probes into the Trump administration’s potential ties to Moscow, taking every opportunity to highlight the saga and forcing floor votes designed to uncover any business dealings the president might have with Russian figures. But rank-and-file Democrats say the Russia-Trump narrative is simply a non-issue with district voters, who are much more worried about bread-and-butter economic concerns like
A week after a gunman opened fire on a Republican congressional baseball practice, triggering bipartisan calls for unity, Democrats have turned up their rhetoric. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R., La.) was shot in the hip on June 14 along with four others after a shooter targeted the GOP practice in Alexandria, Va. The shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, was an avid supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) who had a deep hatred of Republicans and President Donald Trump. Republicans and Democrats subsequently joined in unison to call for lawmakers to tone done their political rhetoric. The rhetoric was toned
Senate and House Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, respectively, did not respond to Breitbart News’s request for comment on actor Johnny Depp’s remarks at a festival in England about assassinating President Donald Trump. Breitbart News sought comments in an email sent twice to Senate Minority Leader Schumer and House Minority Leader Pelosi’s press officials. Breitbart also sought comment from Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) but received no response from either, both of whom are outspoken critics of the president. On Thursday, Depp said at “Cinemageddon,” a film stage
The end of the Supreme Court term looms, and with it the prospect — the terrifying prospect — of a retirement. Specifically, the retirement of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who will turn 81 next month and is the longest-serving current justice, named to the high court almost 30 years ago. So if Kennedy is inclined to retire, it is hard to begrudge him that choice. But his departure would be terrible for the court and terrible for the country. It could not come at a worse time. Any court vacancy these days, under a president of either party, triggers a battle
The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials. The Philippines-flagged cargo ship ACX Crystal was under control of a computerized navigation system that was steering and guiding the container vessel, according to officials familiar with preliminary results of an ongoing Navy investigation. Investigators so far found no evidence the collision was deliberate. Nevertheless, an accident during computerized navigation raises the possibility the container ship´s computer system could have been hacked and the ship deliberately steered into the USS Fitzgerald, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer. A more
A senior US Energy Department official appointed by the Trump administration once described Barack Obama as a “Kenyan creampuff”, Mark Zuckerberg as an “arrogant, self-hating Jew” and climate scientists as “cultists” and “nuts”, according to a report. William C Bradford, director of the Department’s Office of Indian Energy, also appeared to believe Mr Obama might refuse to step down after his two terms of office, asking “what will we do? Is a military coup the only answer?” The messages were posted on a since-deleted Twitter account, @Brute_Bradford, The Washington Post revealed. Previously Mr Bradford caused
Ramadan will come to an end this weekend with the major Muslim festival of Eid al-Fitr, and thus far President Donald Trump’s recognition of Islam’s holiest month has been limited to a statement that almost exclusively addressed violence and terrorism. Breaking with a tradition that dates back more than 20 years, to Bill Clinton’s administration, the White House will not be hosting an iftar—the meal Muslims consume to break their fast—in 2017.
MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski compared President Donald Trump’s administration to North Korea Friday, saying “It does feel like a developing dictatorship.” “I will say you can do some work reading history and reading books about how dictatorship happen. The development of very negative forces taking over and what you are seeing is either this happening right now, or someone who’s not well. Very few options,” Brzezinski continued. Co-host Joe Scarborough tried to lighten to mood during the segment, saying, “I think it’s actually more like Hogan’s Heroes if anything else.” Brzezinski she quietly rebuked Trump once more saying
Many Americans have become accustomed to President Trump’s lies. But as regular as they have become, the country should not allow itself to become numb to them. So we have catalogued nearly every outright lie he has told publicly since taking the oath of office. “I wasn´t a fan of Iraq. I didn´t want to go into Iraq.” (He was for an invasion before he was against it.)Jan. 21 “A reporter for Time magazine — and I have been on their cover 14 or 15 times. I think
Eaarly last August, an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides. Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race. But it went further. The intelligence captured Putin’s specific instructions on the operation’s audacious objectives — defeat or at least damage the Democratic nominee,
ST. LOUIS - The insurance company for the city of Ferguson, Missouri, paid $1.5 million to settle a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Michael Brown´s parents, the city attorney said Friday. Attorney Apollo Carey disclosed the amount in an email in response to an open records request. The settlement of the federal lawsuit was announced Tuesday, but financial details were not initially released. Carey declined further comment on the settlement. A phone message seeking comment from the attorney for the family, Anthony Gray, was not immediately returned. Brown, 18, was black and unarmed when he was fatally shot by white officer Darren Wilson
The televised White House news briefing, after emerging as a can’t-miss ritual of the early days of the Trump administration, has in recent weeks become shorter, less informative and less accessible, with some of the briefings declared off-limits to live broadcasting. The White House Correspondents’ Association is not pleased. “We believe strongly that Americans should be able to watch and listen to senior government officials face questions from an independent news media,” the group’s president, Jeff Mason of Reuters, wrote in a note to members on Friday. Mr. Mason met on Thursday with Sean Spicer, the White House press
Former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton came out swinging in a tweet Friday, saying if Senate Republicans pass their current healthcare bill, they will become the “death party.” Clinton’s post referenced an article from the Center for American Progress, an independent nonpartisan policy institute, which cited Harvard researchers as saying “the Senate bill could result in 18,000 to 28,000 deaths in 2026.” (Snip) The tweet from Clinton follows an earlier tweet urging her supporters to "speak out against" the bill.
While Democrats obsess over the Russia hacking fantasy and Robert Mueller as Trump´s Javert, President Trump, the Federalist Society, and Senator Chuck Grassley are on the way to making the federal judiciary great again. The Huffington Post noticed and is worried: Trump is unbelievably well-positioned to fill up federal courts with lifetime judges. He inherited a whopping 108 court vacancies when he became president – double the number of vacancies President Barack Obama inherited when he took office. The reason Trump gets to fill so many seats is partly because Obama was slow to fill court vacancies early in his tenure. But
Even though it runs through the heart of L.A’.s Baldwin Hills/Crenshaw neighborhood, most Angelenos would be hard pressed to locate Rodeo Road on a map. In fact, they’d probably point to its ritzy doppelganger — Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive — instead. That may change very soon, however. Residents here are cheering a proposal to rename the asphalt thoroughfare in honor of former President Obama, who visited here when he was a U.S. senator. The news that southwest L.A.´s Rodeo Road may soon be renamed “Obama Boulevard" was received positively by residents of the surrounding Crenshaw district. "I´m so happy, that
