Trump takes potshot at Obama in early morning Twitter rant from Camp David, claiming his MAGA agenda is ´doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt´ Daily Mail [UK] Liam Quinn, by Liam Quinn
Donald Trump has attacked former President Barack Obama and those taking part in a ´witch hunt´ against him in a series of early morning tweets. The president claimed his critics are not stopping him from getting on with his promise to ´Make America Great Again´, when he fired up his Twitter account on Sunday morning. ´The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt. Many new jobs, high business enthusiasm,..,´ the president´s first tweet read. ´...massive regulation cuts, 36 new legislative bills signed, great new S.C.Justice, and Infrastructure, Healthcare and Tax Cuts in works!
Trump is doing great. That is why the opposition is going crazy, even turning to violence, none of which will work. Trump has made the establishment GOP look as weak and do nothing as they really are, but they can do nothing about it, because Trump is just winning again there too.
(WCSC) - More than 14,000 people remain without power after Tropical Storm Irma pounded the Lowcountry Monday. Early Monday morning, the majority of power outages ahead of Irma were being reported in Beaufort County, one of three counties in the state expected to see some of the biggest impacts from the storm. By late Monday afternoon, more than 125,000 were without power. Charleston County had the most power outages, followed by Beaufort, Lexington, Richland and Aiken Counties. Gov. Henry McMaster said on Monday that the number of outages statewide as of 2 p.m. totaled more than 146,000. Elsewhere, utility officials
Eight Fort Bragg soldiers were injured during a training accident on post today. A spokesman for U.S. Army Special Operations Command said officials do not know the extent of the injuries. He also could not say what may have caused the injuries. “There was an incident that occurred on one of the ranges,” Lt. Col. Rob Bockholt said. “We’re looking into exactly what happened.” The injured soldiers belong to a unit under USASOC’s command, Bockholt said. He said USASOC is investigating the incident.
Hillary Clinton trolled President Trump with a reply to his tweet, recommending he read another one of her books if he doesn´t like her newest tome on the 2016 campaign, What Happened. ´If you didn´t like that book, try this one — some good lessons in here about working together to solve problems. Happy to send a copy,´ she wrote, including a picture of It Takes a Village, the children´s book she wrote in 1996 while serving as first lady. President Trump brought back an oldie but goodie, again labeling Clinton ´crooked Hillary´ last night, as he panned her election loss by
The last survivor of the legendary ´Great Escape´ mission has celebrated his 100th birthday at a party organised by the RAF. Jack Lyon, a Flight Lieutenant in the RAF during the Second World War, was shot down over enemy territory and imprisoned at Stalag Luft III, at Sagan, south-east Germany, at the time of the escape. Mr Lyon kept surveillance on the camp´s Luftwaffe guards during construction of escape tunnels and was waiting to make his getaway in the early hours of March 25, 1944 when the daring mission was discovered. A total of 76 men were able to get out of
NAPLES, Fla. - Hurricane Irma’s leading edge bent palm trees and spit rain as it swirled toward Florida with 120 mph winds Saturday on a projected new track that could expose Tampa — not Miami — to the storm’s worst fury.

A perfect storm of climatic conditions turned Hurricane Irma into the monster that is currently wreaking havoc on the Caribbean and headed for the US mainland. Unusually warm ocean water in the Atlantic, high atmospheric pressure and weak wind shear have combined to fuel the category five tropical cyclone. Wind speeds of 250 kph were recorded as it hit land in Barbuda yesterday morning, before instruments broke. With ocean winds reaching sustained speeds of 183 mph (295 kph), this makes Irma the strongest storm to ever form over the Atlantic. For Irma to not only gain its strength but subsequently
Hurricane Irma — with its ferocious 185 mph winds — made landfall in the Caribbean early Wednesday, slamming into Barbuda and Antigua as it headed for Puerto Rico. Cuba and South Florida were still in Irma’s projected path into the weekend. The catastrophic Category 5 storm, the most powerful Atlantic storm on record, is expected to bring strong storm surges and up to 20 inches of rain in some places. Irma is moving west-northwest at 16 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center’s advisory at 5 a.m. Wednesday, with the track shifting slightly to the east. The Bahamas government has issued a hurricane warning

A Royal Navy rigid-hulled inflatable boat chased off a Spanish Guardia Civil boat in UK waters off Gibraltar. It did so after the Spanish patrol boat Rio Belelle cut across USNS Carson City as it entered Gibraltar this morning. Gibraltar Coast Watchers founder Michael J Sanchez said: ´Nothing better to ruffle Spain´s feathers that a visit of a U.S. Navy ship to Gibraltar...very irresponsible and reckless move by the Spanish vessel.´ MailOnline have contacted the Foreign & Commonwealth Office for a comment.

We were talking about the crisis in Tel Aviv, where thousands of infiltrators have taken over parts of the town, when my friend said it’s just as bad here in the United States, except that these invaders were brought here legally. “There’s more than one Linda Sarsour,” he said. “Thousands. Maybe millions.” For him – and for many others – it’s personal. Marv has two kids going back to college in a few weeks and he fears for their safety. “In my day,” he said, “the college years were the best of times.” Not so in our day. His two kids aren’t saying
President Donald Trump finally got some face time with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell after the two men hadn´t spoken for weeks. Trump hosted McConnell and other leaders of a group known as the ´big six´ to discuss tax reform. If was the first time the two men had spoken since an angry phone call where Trump reportedly complained about the Russia investigation, following McConnell´s comments to his constituents that Trump was still learning about the pace of the Democratic process. McConnell was seated at Trump´s left during the meeting, with House Speaker Paul Ryan on his right. During a June meeting, it was

Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that she would have been called a "genius" and her campaign "perfect" if she had won the 2016 presidential election. In an interview with WNYC, the former secretary of State reflected on being the first female presidential nominee of a major political party. She said that because of the hurdles women face, she would have been hailed as brilliant if she won. "I thought it was pretty revolutionary that I was the first woman to have a realistic chance of becoming president,” Clinton said. “So I don’t know how any woman who is not familiar to
Melania Trump appears to have sworn off the high heels that got her labeled out of touch and disrespectful when she donned them to visit hurricane victims. The first lady, 47, wore black and beige Chanel flats as she flew from Washington, DC to Fort Myers, Florida with her husband this morning to meet with citizens impacted by Hurricane Irma. Last month, she caused an uproar when she donned high heels while to visit areas struck by Hurricane Harvey in Texas—but wore similar shoes on a follow-up trip to the disaster-struck state earlier this month.

President Donald Trump on Thursday squashed earlier reports that he agreed to protect so-called “Dreamers” during a dinner meeting with two top Democrats, and said “massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent.” Trump’s Twitter post was in response to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who said in a statement that Trump agreed to protect Dreamers and agreed to terms on border security -- "excluding the wall." Trump tweeted, "The WALL, which is already under construction in the form of new renovation of old and
I know it ´s premature, since I predicted (and I stand by it) that Donald Trump would win reelection handily in 2020, but more and more I am convinced that Nikki Haley should be our first woman president. And this is not just a reaction to the recent publication of Hillary Clinton´s new book What Happened in which Mrs. Clinton apparently details precisely the opposite, blaming everyone and everything for her defeat from Bernie Sanders to the "late eclipses of the sun and moon," except for herself. I say "apparently" because I am less likely actually to read her book
Amazon has been monitoring and deleting reviews after Hillary Clinton´s new book was greeted with a torrent of criticism on the day it was released. What Happened, which covers the former Secretary of State´s unsuccessful election campaign against Donald Trump, was published on Tuesday. Clinton and her publisher Simon & Schuster claimed the book would offer a candid account of her failure and her own reflection on it. Reviews of What Happened have been mixed, with some suggesting it Clinton uses it as an opportunity to blame others – such as Bernie Sanders and Vladimir Putin – for her failure, rather than herself.
Hillary Clinton’s “What Happened” reads like a therapy session in which the losing presidential candidate works through the five stages of grief in real time. There’s plenty of anger, oodles of denial, bouts of depression, some desperate bargaining and finally a modicum of acceptance. But not before she’s thrown everyone from President Obama to Bernie Sanders under the bus for her loss to Donald Trump. Among her many laments? “I don’t think the press did their job,” as she tells Vox’s Ezra Klein. Expanding on that, she told him the press obsessed over Trump because she was talking policy while he was “good
ESPN has come under fire after "SportsCenter" host Jemele Hill tweeted that President Donald Trump is a "white supremacist" who is "unfit and unqualified" to be commander-in-chief.

ESPN took no action against Hill for her comments, however, which has led to criticism.

During an interview with Vox on Tuesday, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton argued that without FBI Director James Comey, she could have picked up a point or two more among white women and that Comey allowed husbands and boyfriends to tell their wives and girlfriends that Clinton would end up in jail. Clinton began by saying that white voters have been leaving the Democratic Party since Lyndon Johnson predicted they would. She added that gender isn’t “the motivating factor that race was for President Obama.” Clinton then cited research that Sheryl Sandberg discussed with her about women become less likeable the
The country’s voting machines are susceptible to hacking, which could be done in a way so that it leaves no fingerprints, making it impossible to know whether the outcome was changed, computer experts told President Trump’s voter integrity commission Tuesday. The testimony marked a departure for the commission, which was formed to look into fraud and barriers to voting, but which heard that a potentially greater threat to confidence in American elections is the chance for enemy actors to meddle. “There’s no perfect security; there’s only degrees of insecurity,” said Ronald Rivest, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University has named convicted felon and transgender activist Chelsea Manning as a visiting fellow at its Institute of Politics for the 2017-18 academic year.

NEW YORK — Hillary Clinton was so frustrated about the infamous scandal surrounding her use of a private email server that she was “tempted” to construct voodoo dolls in the images of “certain members” of the news media and Congress, and then “stick them full of pins.” So Clinton wrote in her 494-page new memoir, What Happened, which was released today. In the book, Clinton complained that the “attacks” against her use of the private email server “were untrue or wildly overstated, and motivated by partisan politics.” She revealed her voodoo doll temptation: It was a dumb mistake. But an even dumber “scandal.” It
Hillary Clinton seemed to add Benghazi to her already-long list of culprits to blame for her upset loss to Donald Trump last November, on the heels of the five-year anniversary of the terror attack. In her first live interview since the election timed with the release of her new memoir “What Happened,” Clinton on Wednesday brought up the controversy over the Benghazi terror attack in response to a question about her likability. Clinton said she was unfairly criticized, even suggesting the incident was no different than past tragedies dating back to the Reagan administration. “Take the Benghazi tragedy—you know, I have one of
