Trump record on judges: Much to
be proud of, but much more to do

Washington Times, by John G. Malcolm

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/1/2018 6:26:39 PM

On May 17, 2016, then-candidate Donald Trump did something unprecedented. He released a list of 11 judges as candidates to replace U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who had passed away earlier in the year. Mr. Trump announced that his “list of potential Supreme Court justices is representative of the kind of constitutional principles I value and, as President, I plan to use this list as a guide to nominate our next United States Supreme Court Justices.” That September, he added 10 names to that list — including that of Neil Gorsuch, the man who was subsequently nominated and confirmed to the Supreme Court after

It´s important to remember that President Trump needs our support by having US put our current elected officials on Capital Hill feet to the fire to support his nominations. Then, in the Fall, when the midterms come along, replace the RINOS (GOPe) so that 2018 is another stellar year for President Trump (US).

The eldest son of former Cuban leader Fidel Castro committed suicide Thursday while living on the island his father ruled as president for more than 40 years. Two Cuban government sources confirmed to NBC News that Fidel Angel Castro Diaz-Balart, 68, died on Friday morning following months-long treatment "for a deep state of depression by a group of doctors." According to Cuban state media, Diaz-Balart had been hospitalized for his depression to undergo treatment and was later released for outpatient care. He had been serving as the scientific adviser to the State Council and vice president of the

North Korean Defector´s Story

Washington - Ji Seong-ho, 35, a North Korean defector who appeared at President Trump´s State of the Union address this week, is from Hoeryong, near the border with China. He told Reuters last year about the wooden crutches that he left North Korea with in 2006. This is an edited translation of his story: "I lived as a child beggar in North Korea. I was stealing coal from a train when I fell off and lost my leg and my hand. I had to bring the crutches with me. If I didn't have them, I wouldn't have made it here. The state doesn't help you in North Korea, and people who need crutches make their own. Mine are therefore not factory-made so

Listen to this 14-year-old

(Video/Audio) - A 14-year-old killer whale in France has successfully imitated human speech, according to researchers who got her to squeak out convincing versions of words, including “hello,” “Amy” and “bye, bye.” The vocal feats put Wikie, an orca at the Marineland aquarium in the city of Antibes, in rare company. While birds such as parrots and mynas are known to be able to mimic human sounds, only a few mammals, including a zoo elephant in South Korea, have been documented doing so. Wikie had already been trained during previous studies to respond to “copy” or “do that!” command, and this time the

Trump ‘Dreamer’ deal puts
the squeeze on Democrats

President Donald Trump told a listening State of the Union country that part of his border and immigration plan included a pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million illegals currently in America. This is actually a politically ingenious move. Trump-voting conservatives may be angry. But fact is, the announcement put the border issue squarely in the Democrats’ court. The left will either have to concede on other key border control matters — or admit hypocrisy. (Snip) Not the best news for Trump’s base, true. But politically, it’s savvy and smart, and pragmatic. For one, Democrats can’t play the racist card on Dreamers any longer.

Iceland MPs propose ban

MPs from five different political parties in Iceland have proposed a ban on the circumcision of boys. The bill, which has been submitted to the country’s parliament, suggests a six-year prison term for anyone found guilty of “removing sexual organs in whole or in part”. Circumcising girls has been illegal in Iceland since 2005, but there are currently no laws to regulate the practice against boys. Describing circumcision as a “violation” of young boys’ rights, the bill states the only time it should be considered is for “health reasons”. Addressing religious traditions, it insists the “rights of the child” always exceed the “right of the parents

Palm Beach County, FL - Children could be sitting ducks for potential predators. A new app connects users as young as 13 with adults, some without even knowing it. (Snip) The app connects Snapchat, Instagram and Kik users on a single platform. Johnson’s biggest concern is the app shows how close other users are, down to a hundredth of a mile or 50 feet. "Predators can just easily find out where you are," said Johnson. On Google Play, the app’s content rating is Mature 17-plus. However, the app allows you to search for users as young as 13. "These adult people are preying on this app," said Johnson. It’s relatively easy to find

(Video) - Cape Town -- a city once at the forefront of Africa´s green movement -- implemented new emergency water restrictions Thursday as the sprawling metropolis prepares for the day its taps run dry. Residents are now being asked to curb the amount of municipal water they use each day to just 50 liters (a little over 13 gallons). Only a month ago, level six restrictions had placed residents on a daily allowance of 87 liters (about 23 gallons), illustrating the severity of the looming crisis. Officials estimate that if water levels continue to fall as expected, South Africa's second most populous city will run out of water

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., "should smile a lot more often," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday. Sanders made the comment during an interview with CNN´s Chris Cuomo after Cuomo said he had never seen Pelosi as grim-faced as she was at President Trump´s State of the Union address Tuesday night. Sanders said she disagreed with Cuomo. "I think Nancy Pelosi looks like that all the time," Sanders said. "I think she should smile a lot more often. I think the country would be better for it. She seems to kind of embody the bitterness that belongs in the Democrat party right now."

Court upholds Obama-era Wall
Street cop bureau as constitutional

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau — the controversial Wall Street cop Congress set up in the wake of the 2008 collapse — is constitutional, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday, delivering a major win to liberals who’d pushed for the independent watchdog. The decision means that the CFPB can continue to operate with just a single chief who cannot be removed at will by a president and whose budget is independent of Congress, giving the bureau extraordinary power free from the checks and balances that govern most other government agencies. But the appeals court also seemed to suggest that firing

Washington - Top White House aides are worried FBI Director Christopher Wray could quit if the highly controversial Republican memo alleging the FBI abused its surveillance tools is released, multiple sources with knowledge of the situation tell CNN. Wray has made clear he is frustrated that President Donald Trump picked him to lead the FBI after he fired FBI Director James Comey in May, yet his advice on the Nunes memo is being disregarded and cast as part of the purported partisan leadership of the FBI, according to a senior law enforcement official. Wray´s stance is "raising hell," one source familiar with

Democratic leadership on Friday issued a warning to President Trump that using a controversial GOP memo to fire special counsel Robert Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein would create a "constitutional crisis" not seen since the Nixon administration. "We write to inform you that we would consider such an unwarranted action as an attempt to obstruct justice in the Russia investigation. Firing Rod Rosenstein, DOJ Leadership, or Bob Mueller could result in a constitutional crisis of the kind not seen since the Saturday Night Massacre," Democrats wrote in the letter to Trump.

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., on Thursday implored President Trump not to release the classified memo drafted by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and his staff. “President Trump should heed the warnings of the Justice Department and FBI, and reverse his reported decision to defy longstanding policies regarding the disclosure of classified information," the outgoing Arizona Republican wrote in a joint statement issued with Sen.

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) are proving central to efforts to impeach President Trump.
