Donald Trump has been criticized by Moscow after going on the attack against Cuban leaders and flagging an undoing of changes made by Barack Obama. The Russian Foreign Ministry took aim at Trump´s decision to freeze a detente with Cuba and his verbal outburst the Caribbean island´s leaders. Russia´s Foreign Ministry said in a statement Sunday Trump is: ´returning us to the forgotten rhetoric of the Cold War.´ The statement added: ´It´s clear the anti-Cuba discourse is still widely needed. This can only induce regret.´ Russia´s statement came after Trump said on Friday he was ´cancelling the last administration´s

Moscow´s foreign ministry sounds like a divorced hubbie who thought he was about to be relieved of his alimony payments by Castro family´s intended marriage to a sugar daddy.

Sorry, Moscow. President Sugar Daddy´s gone. Wedding´s off. Who´s your daddy, now?

The main changes made by Trump should have been made, among them not allowing American businesses to partner, or be required to go through Castro´s company. If Cuba wants a relationship, that is fine, but the USA does not need to be forced into a Castro relationship.

Furious German town meeting begs
rape relief from uncaring mayor
Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Mordechai Sones    Original Article

Video of a German town meeting in which the new German reality dawns on desperate citizens has been revealed by conservative commentator Amy Mek via social media. In it, one may discern the watershed moment when the bureaucratic leadership breaks news to the incensed constituency that the familiar concepts of German sovereignty, borders, and culture no longer form the stabilizing center of government priority that had kept them safe in the past. From the video it is apparent that until this town meeting, the citizens in it still believed, perhaps logically, that their government exists to protect them, their loved

Fox News may have cut ties with its disgraced former CEO Roger Ailes amid a maelstrom of sexual harassment allegations. But the late media mogul never turned his back on his closest aides, rewarding their loyalty with a series of massive cash payments in a will created months after his ouster. Documents obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com show Ailes left the vast majority of his reported $100 million fortune in a trust for his wife Elizabeth Tilson and 17-year-old son Zachary. But the 77-year-old, who died May 18 after a fall at his Palm Beach, Florida mansion, also left behind a $1.78 million fund

DONALD Trump could face impeachment after a Democrat representative filed the first official papers calling for the President to be thrown out of office. Representative Brad Sherman claims the firing of former FBI Director James Comey amounts to obstruction of justice. And he believes that doing so while Mr Comey was investigating Russian meddling into the US election strengthens his case. He also highlights the recent news regarding the President’s son Donald Trump Jr, who is accused of meeting with a Russia lawyer over supposedly damaging information about his father’s rival Hillary Clinton.

President Donald Trump previewed a ´major speech´ attacking Hillary Clinton last June, just hours after his son, Donald Trump Jr, set up a meeting with a Russian lawyer he was told had damaging information about the Democratic candidate. In a speech on June 7, 2016, Trump said that ´probably Monday of next week´ he would deliver a ´major speech´ featuring a discussion of ´all of the things that have taken place with the Clintons´. The speech came just four days after Trump Jr was contacted by publicist Rob Goldstone, who claims that he has information obtained by the Russian government that he

An ITV News investigation has revealed the scale of vacancies in NHS hospitals stretching across England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. Some hospitals reported more than 1,000 vacancies with the biggest gaps, at every trust, in nursing. Others admitted crucial roles have remained unfilled for years, despite repeated advertising. ITV News asked every acute trust in the country to disclose how many staff posts were vacant. In total 92 trusts responded to our Freedom of Information request. The new figures underline the scale of the workforce crisis facing the NHS, after years of pay caps for staff in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Although hospitals

Hillary Clinton is encouraging people to support Planned Parenthood by buying TBS host Samantha Bee´s T-shirts. The shirts feature the words ´Nasty Woman´ - a reference to the jibe President Trump made at Clinton during a 2016 presidential debate. The phrase was quickly seized by feminists and Hillary supporters in the run up to the election. The former Secretary of State showed her support for Bee and her cause on Tuesday, tweeting a picture of smiling photo of herself holding up the shirt, with the caption: ´Support Samantha Bee & Planned Parenthood & buy a Nasty Woman t-shirt.´ Clinton also posted a

Clint Eastwood has taken an unconventional move with his latest film, tapping the heroes of the 2015 Paris train attack to play themselves in their own biopic. The 87-year-old director has cast Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos and Spencer Stone to recreate the dramatic moment they tacked an AK-wielding gunman. Eastwood and the studio had already completed casting for the film, titled The 15:17 to Paris, when the unusual decision was made at the last hour, Variety reported. The film recreates the dramatic moment the three men tackled Moroccan terrorist Ayoub El Khazzani, 25, who had boarded the train from Amsterdam to Paris. While sources

Bill de Blasio was snubbed by NYPD officers at the funeral of slain cop Miosotis Familia on Tuesday in a show of protest over his decision to go to Germany last week in the immediate aftermath of her death. The 48-year-old was shot dead in The Bronx as she made notes in her patrol car in the early hours of July 5. Her killer, paranoid schizophrenic Anthony Bonds, 34, was gunned down by other police officers as he tried to flee. On Tuesday, thousands packed World Changers Church in The Bronx to lay Familia, a single mother-of-three, to rest. Outside, scores more stood beneath

Trump FINALLY defends Don Jr: President

his son is a ´high-quality person´

President Donald Trump broke his silence Tuesday on a meeting his son took with a Russian lawyer claiming to have damaging information on Hillary Clinton. The president offered a simple statement on the matter that spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders read aloud at an off-camera press briefing. ´My son is a high-quality person, and I applaud his transparency,´ the president´s statement said. Huckabee Sanders directed most other questions on the meeting that the New York Times first revealed three days ago on Saturday to Don Jr´s lawyer and the president´s outside counsel.

Well why not? If they own the Cave of the Patriarchs all bets are off and they own EVERYTHING, including Yankee Stadium, which to American culture is hallowed ground for the memories of Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Reggie Jackson and at this rate, some day Aaron Judge. In fact I’d be surprised if Mahmoud Abbas hasn’t already put in his bid. All he has to do is ask and UNESCO says sure, it’s yours. When it comes to those UNESCO clowns – the 195 nations that make up the UN’s “heritage center” – the other shoe always drops. It’s tough keeping

It’s the sort of brazen move that might ordinarily trigger a front-page news story or an outraged editorial — a bunch of rich individuals asking Congress to write them a law that would give them better negotiating power against other rich individuals. Yet in this case, the rich individuals wanting special treatment are the newspaper owners themselves. Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos (worth $83.9 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaire’s Index), New York Times owner Carlos Slim (worth $61.1 billion), and Buffalo News owner Warren Buffett ($76.9 billion), publicly pleading poverty, are asking Congress for a helping hand in their

A growing number of Californians want to secede from the U.S., according to a new poll by Supporters of California Independence. Thirty-three percent of the people surveyed were in favor of the idea, the majority of them saying they are progressives or social Democrats. Many of the respondents were moved to their answer by the current political climate. "About half of our supporters wanted an independent California through democratic and peaceful means before Trump, and then the other half got on board when they realized just how broken American politics have become," said Theo Slater of the California National Party.

When a man suspected of drunk driving smashed through the front wall of their home in Waco, Texas, early Saturday morning, Kelly Downs and her husband, Ken, were sleeping in the master suite towards the rear of the house. The couple were unharmed, but according to Kelly, the violent incident was a long time coming. “It’s like the Wild West here.

This is oddly interesting. ( h/t GWP ) At the heart of the current media Russian narrative du jour is a story about Donald Trump Jr. meeting with a Russian attorney named Natalia Veselnitskaya. That meeting took place on June 9th 2016 in Trump Tower. Now it is discovered via video and images, that only 5 days later, June 14th 2016, Ms. Veselnitskava was a guest of former Obama administration Russian Ambassador Michael McFaul in Washington DC for a House of Representatives hearing on U.S. Policy Toward Putin’s Russia.

Over the past generation, members of the college-educated class have become amazingly good at making sure their children retain their privileged status. They have also become devastatingly good at making sure the children of other classes have limited chances to join their ranks. How they’ve managed to do the first task — giving their own children a leg up — is pretty obvious. It’s the pediacracy, stupid. Over the past few decades, upper-middle-class Americans have embraced behavior codes that put cultivating successful children at the center of life. As soon as they get money, they turn it into investments in

The entire Fort Lauderdale Police Department should undergo extra training on how to properly treat transgender people, a city panel has decided. The suggestion came Monday during a Citizens Police Review Board hearing for a police officer who categorized a transgender woman as male on a citation. The board, which serves as a watchdog group over police, also decided the officer should receive a written reprimand for the incident. “I think it’s fair,” said board member Marc Dickerson. “It’s a matter of training and the officers need training.” Officer James Brinton faced a complaint from Shelby Kendall after he pulled

A chunk of floating ice that weighs more than a trillion metric tons broke away from the Antarctic Peninsula, producing one of the largest icebergs ever recorded and providing a glimpse of how the Antarctic ice sheet might ultimately start to fall apart. A crack more than 120 miles long had developed over several years in a floating ice shelf called Larsen C, and scientists who have been monitoring it confirmed on Wednesday that the huge iceberg had finally broken free. There is no scientific consensus over whether global warming is to blame. But the landscape of the Antarctic Peninsula has been fundamentally changed,

t’s easy to see why Sarah Huckabee Sanders wants the TV cameras off during her White House news briefings. There is, for one, the matter of her boss constantly proclaiming things that range from the inexplicable to the patently wrong. There’s also the metastasizing Russia scandal, which keeps rendering previous Trump White House statements inoperative, as Richard Nixon press secretary Ron Ziegler used to say. But above all is a more simple explanation: Sanders has no earthly idea what’s going on in the White House she purports to represent. And so, at Monday’s off-camera briefing, she stood on the podium,

His father was a congressman who went to prison in 2003 after pleading guilty to 31 felony charges of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud. He served five years.The two are professional moochers.
