New York Post, by Marisa Schultz

WASHINGTON – The new White House communications director is pledging “dramatic action” to clamp down on leaks that are upsetting President Trump. “If we don’t get the leaks stopped, I am a businessperson, and so I will take dramatic action to stop those leaks,” Anthony Scaramucci told “Fox News Sunday.” Appointed Friday to lead the press shop, Scaramucci said all current staffers will have “amnesty” for past unauthorized tips to the media. Going forward, their jobs are dependent on staying quiet about any internal White House turmoil or private dealings. “If the leaks don’t stop, I’m going to pare down

It seems a simple matter to trap a leaker by issuing different ´marked bills´ to separate WH staffers. Something anodyne like a proposed trip to Japan or National Forest plans.

When the leak is inevitably made, the leaker will be uniquely identified.

Seek and destroy.

A headless torso found in waters off Denmark has been identified as missing Swedish journalist Kim Wall, Danish police say. There was a "DNA match between [the] torso and Kim Wall", Copenhagen police said on Twitter. Ms Wall was last seen alive on 10 August as she departed on a submarine trip with inventor Peter Madsen. The submarine sank hours after the search for Ms Wall began. Mr Madsen was charged with negligent manslaughter. He initially said he had dropped her off safely near Copenhagen, but has since said she died in an accident and that he had "buried" her at sea.

I’ve been on the Barron Trump train from the start, but it’s about time the president’s son starts dressing the part. Barron is the youngest son of Donald Trump and the only child the president shares with Melania Trump. Time and time again Barron has proved that he’s just a normal 11-year-old kid, despite the fact that his dad is the President of the United States and he lives in the White House. One thing that isn’t normal though is the way he dresses when he joins his parents for a public appearance. Barron was returning to the White House from New

Answering a question from the Washington Examiner during a press conference on Tuesday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson suggested that Afghanistan´s security situation needs improving before the United States can negotiate with groups such as the Taliban and Haqqani network. As he put it: [ad] We are going to have to improve the security environment... the environment today is not conducive to carrying out those types of activities... so part of what we´re going to have to do is first ensure we´re ready to engage when conditions permit us to engage.

Republican lawmakers are casting a wider net in their search for wrongdoing at federal agencies in past election cycles, after learning the Postal Service violated the law by allowing employees to do union-funded work for Hillary Clinton’s campaign while on leave. The lawmakers blasted out letters on Monday to 10 other federal government agencies questioning their unpaid leave policy for union-related political work. Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., led the charge on the review of agencies’ practices after spurring an investigation

Sorry might not cut it for the Missouri lawmaker who called for President Trump’s assassination. Missouri Senate leaders announced Tuesday that Democratic state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal has been stripped of her committee assignments, just two days after she tried to calm the controversy with a public apology. Meanwhile, the state’s Republican lieutenant governor, Mike Parson, on Tuesday called for the Senate to go into special session to expel Chappelle-Nadal from the body. “I do not make this request of you lightly, but you and I know it is the

CNN host Brian Stelter has faced criticism for revealing that his colleagues in the mainstream media regularly discuss whether President Trump is mentally fit to hold office. During Sunday´s edition of "Reliable Sources," Stelter said such conversations were happening "in newsrooms and TV studios" in the wake of Trump´s response to the previous weekend´s violence between white nationalists and counter-protesters and Charlottesville, Va. "Usually after the microphones are off, or after the stories are filed, after the paper has been put to bed, people’s concerns, and fears and questions come out," Stelter said. "...

For more than 400 years, since the time of the Mughal emperor Jahangir, the Indian city of Kannauj has been distilling flowers to make perfume. But the industry is in decline. Synthetic perfumes are pushing the distilleries towards closure - and these exquisite scents may soon be lost forever. visitor to Kannauj could easily miss the signs of what was once the city’s main industry. But among the cars, lorries and street vendors, just occasionally a cart passes by laden with flower baskets, and turns through a large gate into the stone-paved alleyways of the old city.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s wife, Louise Linton, was being blasted by social media users on Monday night for posting a picture of herself exiting a government plane in designer clothes — which she flaunted using hashtags. While it was mostly lighthearted, the online outrage seemed to get to the Scottish actress — seeing how she scolded a woman who called her out on Instagram. “Glad we could pay for your little getaway,” the user said. To which Linton replied, “Cute! Aw!!! Did you think this was a personal trip?! Adorable! Do you think the US govt paid for our honeymoon

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s wife, Louise Linton, suddenly feels bad about her snobbish Instagram post and condescending rant against a commenter. “I apologize for my post on social media yesterday as well as my response,” the 36-year-old said in a statement to CNN. “It was inappropriate and highly insensitive,” she added. Linton’s “Let them eat cake” moment lit up social media on Monday night. The Scottish actress sparked outrage with her fashionable “day trip” to Kentucky aboard a government plane and captioned hashtags calling out Tom Ford, Hermes and Valentino — whom she was wearing in the pic.

Trump’s feud with McConnell

The relationship between President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is so fractured the pair haven’t spoken in weeks, a new report said Tuesday. And McConnell has privately said he doesn’t know if Trump can even salvage his presidency, The New York Times reported. The feud has only deepened since the Senate was unable to repeal Obamacare, and the president’s incendiary comments after the unrest in Charlottesville only made things worse, the paper reported. The rift, marked by Trump’s repeated attacks on the majority leader on Twitter and an angry phone call between the two that deteriorated into cursing, comes at

Top Navy leaders are refusing to rule out the possibility that a collision between an U.S. destroyer and an oil tanker in the Pacific may have been intentional, Chief of Naval Operations Adm.

McCain, an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer attached to the Navy’s Seventh Fleet, according to a Navy statement. Search and rescue operations by the U.S., Indonesian, Singaporean and Malayan navies remained underway Monday night for the missing

North Korea: Thanks for not nuking us. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Tuesday praised Kim Jong Un´s rogue nation for its "restraint" on nuclear weapons, even after Kim has spent two weeks threatening the U.S. with mass destruction. Tillerson said he was pleased that North Korea had not run any missile launches since the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted sanctions against the communist country. "We hope that this is the beginning of this signal that we´ve been looking for —that they are ready to restrain their level of tension," Tillerson told reporters.

“There must always” be a flow low-skilled immigration to the United States, no matter its impact on American workers, according to Republican establishment figure Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ).

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are among a set of White House aides pushing President Trump to allow illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to stay, in an effort to get Democrats to fund the president´s border wall. McClatchy reported that the group of White House officials have suggested using so-called ´Dreamers´ as a bargaining chip, in order to check off some of the president´s campaign promises on immigration, including the wall, additional detention facilities, an E-verify system for employers and cuts to legal immigration. However, such a move would break another campaign promise, as candidate Donald Trump had pledged

As the face of CNN, Anderson Cooper makes a very good living as wealthy, privileged white man casting judgments of affiliation upon his political enemies. This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro-America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know. As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest “old money” families in American history, Cooper is a direct descendant of big time slave owners. Cooper’s great-great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned several plantations,

For WGN meteorologist Tom Skilling, it was an especially awe-inspiring event. The famed meteorologist hugged and high-fived people around him and wept as the eclipse occurred Monday afternoon. "Oh, my word," Skilling said. "Wow. This is amazing. What do you think of this, this?" At another point, he told viewers, "I´ll get my act together, guys." His voice cracking, Skilling apologized for his tears. Skilling´s heartfelt reaction earned him praise from fans:

President Trump’s “America First” base was the biggest loser of Trump’s speech on Afghanistan Monday night, and many quickly expressed their disappointment at the business-as-usual address from the president who had once promised to limit American intervention abroad and focus on nation-building at home. Trump’s speech, in which he pledged to increase the number of troops in the 16-year-war, was the first since the departure of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and confirmed the fears of many on the right that without a strong nationalist voice in the West Wing, the President would revert to the same old fare that Americans had

Washington - Democrats have a warning for Donald Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon: Don’t use your position at Breitbart to share classified and sensitive information you collected while at the White House. "Steve Bannon has an ongoing obligation to safeguard our nation’s secrets, and he does not gain some kind of extra Constitutional protection just because he is now returning to a position in the media,” said Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., the senior Democrat on the House Oversight Committee. Cummings said lawmakers closely watch people in such positions after they leave high level security positions.
