Trump refuses to take
call from Venezuela’s Maduro

Washington Times, by Dave Boyer

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 8/12/2017 10:15:33 AM

President Trump rebuffed the offer of a phone call from the president of Venezuela late Friday night, after Mr. Trump warned that he is considering military options to address civil and political unrest in the South American country. “President Trump will gladly speak with the leader of Venezuela as soon as democracy is restored in that country,” the White House said. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro requested a phone call with Mr. Trump after Mr. Trump made a surprise statement late Friday that he’s considering unspecified military action to address what the administration is calling a “dictatorship.”

Comments:
After Trump "surprisingly" stated that fixing the current chaos in Venezuela might require a military option, you´d better believe Maduro got on the phone. Since the Oval Office is being refurbished (bugs removed), no one was there to take the call. Try again Monday.

Rather than posting this article on website, am including it here because it has video of this "shock and awe" sudden statement aimed at Venezuela. The New York Times shows the "machismo" of the Venezuelan Defense Minister in reacting to Trump´s "threat".

Progtard treasoners are having a cow [unisexual] because President Trump is NOT continuing the appeasist line so beloved of America haters.

Appeasement´s 100% failure rate is a pivotal part of progtard plans for the disappearance of America as we know it. Whitey could get away scot free from progtard plans for their eradication if the President´s "radical" plans are not stopped.

The GOP’s plan to cut the number of immigrants and increase the percentage of highly educated workers within that pool would decrease GDP by 2 percent over the long term and cost 4.6 million jobs, a new study finds. The RAISE Act, introduced by Senators Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) and David Perdue (R-Georgia) and endorsed by President Donald Trump earlier this month, would use a “merit-based” system for evaluating applicants, prioritizing those with college degrees, English-language skills, and employment prospects, among other criteria — an approach favored by politicians in both parties.

Trump slams ´grandstanders´ who

Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/15/2017 12:26:04     Post Reply
President Trump lashed out Tuesday at the CEOs dropping out of his manufacturing council, accusing them of grandstanding and saying they’re replaceable. The president responded on Twitter after several execs announced their departure from the American Manufacturing Council in protest over the administration’s response to the deadly Charlottesville violence. “For every CEO that drops out of the Manufacturing Council, I have many to take their place. Grandstanders should not have gone on. JOBS!” he wrote.

The immediate aftermath of the widely reported Charlottesville violence wasn’t so much a media look at the issues, or the car-plowing suspect and victims, or even the demographics of the protesters — that many came from out of state to stand strong against a small-town statue of Robert E. Lee — as it was a cause to criticize President Donald Trump. Heck, the way some in the press painted it two days later, it was Trump himself who caused the mayhem. But why all the angst against the president? Trump, asked on Saturday to comment on protests that turned violent and fatal — that led to the death of Heather Heyer and two state

The Trump campaign accused CNN Tuesday of censorship for refusing to broadcast a paid advertisement highlighting President Trump’s achievements. “Today, CNN provided further proof that the network earns this mistrust every day by censoring President Trump’s message to the American people by blocking our paid campaign ad,” said Michael Glassner, executive director of Donald J. Trump for President Inc. “Clearly, the only viewpoint CNN allows on air is CNN’s.” The commercial says Democrats are “obstructing” the president’s agenda, and the media are “attacking” him. “The president’s enemies don’t want him to succeed,” the ad

Barbara Boxer in 2010 and also fell short in her bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. The 62-year-old is now considering running to unseat Sen.

A Chick-fil-A customer only realized she got more than she ordered after she bit into her chicken sandwich and found a dead rodent. Ellen Manfalouti, 46, took legal action last week against the fast food restaurant after she found a small rodent baked into her sandwich in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, according to Philly.com. The Holland resident is seeking $50,000 for the Nov. 25 incident. Manfalouti said that a co-worker brought the meal back to their workplace after picking it up from the Chick-fil-A drive-thru. While eating in a conference room, Manfalouti said that she noticed there was something off about the sandwich.

Dubai - Iran could abandon its nuclear agreement with world powers "within hours" if the United States imposes any more new sanctions, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday. (Snip) The United States imposed unilateral sanctions after saying Iran´s ballistic missile tests violated a U.N. resolution, which endorsed the nuclear deal and called upon Tehran not to undertake activities related to ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such technology. It stopped short of explicitly barring such activity. Iran denies its missile development breaches the resolution, saying its missiles

Montgomery, AL - Alabama Sen. Luther Strange on Tuesday looked to support from President Donald Trump to help carry him to the victory — or at least a runoff — in the Alabama Senate Republican primary, while his GOP rivals continued to batter him as the candidate of the so-called Washington establishment. Alabama voters go to the polls Tuesday to select party nominees in the closely watched Senate race for the seat that belonged to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The race will test both the reach of Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell after a super political action committee tied to McConnell

U.S. doctors may have found an explanation to the increasingly aggressive threats of nuclear war by North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un: it´s ´roid rage´. The rotund dictator has long been alleged to suffer from gout, brought on by his poor diet, which can be treated with steroid medication. Kim Jong-Un, who is alleged to have executed opponents with a flame-thrower and had his own half-brother assassinated, is currently threatening to conduct nuclear missile tests in the waters of Guam. Now, a renowned orthopedic specialist says the increased number of nuclear missile tests and threats to attack the U.S. could be because of the

Fleas in two Arizona counties are carrying bubonic plague, an infectious disease that took the lives of millions of people in the Middle Ages, according to news reports. So far there have been no reported illness and deaths. Health officials in Navajo and Coconino counties in Arizona recently issued a warning to the general public after fleas in the northern part of the state tested positive for Yersinia pestis, the bacteria that causes the bubonic plague. Humans can contract the plague in a number of ways. In addition to flea bites, people can pick up the bacteria by handling the fluids or tissue of a rodent or another animal that has the illness.

The archbishop of the archdiocese of Melbourne, Denis Hart, said he would risk going to jail rather than report allegations of child sexual abuse raised during confession, and that the sacredness of communication with God during confession should be above the law. He was responding to a report from the child sex abuse royal commission calling for reforms that, if adopted by governments, would see failure to report child sex abuse in institutions become a criminal offence, extending to information given in religious confessions.

Marshawn Lynch, a runningback for the Oakland Raiders, sat and ate a banana during the national anthem on Saturday before the Raiders’ first preseason football game against the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale, Arizona. Lynch did not play during the game, and the Raiders’ coach said Lynch’s actions were a “non-issue.” Although Lynch said he has been doing this for 11 years, photos and videos show he stood on many occasions for the national anthem in recent years. Lynch reportedly was not present in the locker room after the game, according to CBS Sports. However, the Raiders’ coach, Jack Del Rio, said

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. — White House officials, under siege over President Trump’s reluctance to condemn white supremacists for the weekend’s bloody rallies in Charlottesville, Va., tried to clarify his comments on Sunday, as critics in both parties intensified demands that he adopt a stronger, more unifying message. A statement on Sunday — issued more than 36 hours after the protests began — condemned “white supremacists” for the violence that led to one death. It came in an email sent to reporters in the president’s traveling press pool, and was attributed to an unnamed representative. It was not attributed directly to Mr.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America’s largest Muslim civil rights group, is calling on state and local governments all over the United States to tear down all monuments and memorials commemorating Confederate leaders and the short-lived Confederate States of America. CAIR joined several groups asking for the removal of Confederate memorials in the wake of a “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally that turned violent over the weekend.

In Gainesville, Florida, workers hired by the Daughters of the Confederacy chipped away at a Confederate soldier´s statue, loaded it quietly on a truck and drove away with little fanfare. In Baltimore, Mayor Catherine Pugh said she´s ready to tear down all of her city´s Confederate statues, and the city council voted to have them destroyed. San Antonio lawmakers are looking ahead to removing a statue that many people wrongly assumed represented a famed Texas leader who died at the Alamo. Some people refused to wait.

Hundreds of pro-Trump demonstrators and anti-Trump counter-protesters converged at Westlake Park in downtown Seattle on Sunday, resulting in several arrests and the confiscation of weapons. The rally, organized by the conservative group Patriot Prayer, came one day after violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left three people dead and dozens injured. Counter-protesters -- including antifa, Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), Veterans for Peace, Indivisible Seattle, Black Lives Matter, and the Freedom Socialist Party -- marched "in solidarity against hate," specifically against what they called “the bigotry, racism and violence" of the "far-right" organizers.

Protesters toppled a Confederate monument in Durham, N.C. on Monday night. Video posted to Twitter shows protestors surrounding the statue and chanting "No KKK! No fascists! USA" as several protestors appear to pull down the statue with a rope. WNCN reports the statue was dedicated in Durham in 1924 and was located in front of a local government building. The statue represented a soldier who fought in the Civil War and an inscription on the front read "The Confederate States of America." One organizer of the protest told WNCN that toppling the statue was in response to the violence at a white supremacist
