Pardoned ex-Navy sailor
happy Trump helped
restore his life, good name
New York Daily News, by Denis Slattery    Original Article

The former Navy sailor pardoned by President Trump is happy to have his life back — but hopes his story will expose the hypocrisy he sees at the Justice Department. Trump on Saturday congratulated Kristian Saucier, telling him to “go out and have the life you deserve.” The White House announced a day earlier that Trump had granted clemency to the 31-year-old, who served a year in federal prison after taking photos of a classified area inside a nuclear submarine. “It gives me back my good name and gives me a chance to move forward,” Saucier told the Daily News. “It’s an amazing thing.”

Rex Tillerson Removed as Secretary of State…

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson did an excellent job representing the professional and deliberate diplomatic approach of the U.S. and President Trump administration. (Snip) Having said that, as President Trump stated earlier today, there was also more than a tinge of disunity between the advocated views of Tillerson and the views of the Commander in Chief toward economic national security. At times the fractures between policy perspectives were visible. Over time those differences became more obvious. As Secretary of the DoS Rex Tillerson supported the Paris Climate Treaty; the President did not;

Under Pompeo, a Foreign Policy
That Fits the President’s Worldview

The sudden firing on Tuesday of Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson, the former Exxon Mobil chief executive who never managed to capture the role of chief diplomat, makes room for a true believer in President Trump’s “America First” views and a bitter critic of the Iran nuclear deal — but also a deep skeptic about whether negotiations will persuade North Korea to abandon its nuclear arsenal. Mr. Tillerson’s anticipated replacement, Mike Pompeo, the C.I.A. director, was among the harshest critics of the 2015 nuclear agreement that world powers brokered with Iran. If confirmed, Mr. Pompeo will take over the

Major Steele Dossier Source

During the 2016 presidential campaign, the founder of the opposition research firm behind the Steele dossier tipped a major news network off to Sergei Millian, a Belarus-born businessman who has been identified as a source for the salacious claims made in the dossier. Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS, provided the tip to ABC News despite having doubts about the veracity of Millian’s claims about President Donald Trump. That’s according to “Russian Roullette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump,” a book written by Michael Isikoff and David Corn that hit shelves

Breaking: Pennsylvania House race too early to

Democrat Conor Lamb is poised to upset Republican Rick Saccone in Pennsylvania´s 18th Congressional District, which could put a big dent in the Trump brand. In what had been slam-dunk district for Republicans in the past, polling over the weekend showed Lamb, a federal prosecutor, six points ahead of Saccone, a Pennsylvania state representative. The previous person to hold the seat, disgraced Republican Rep. Tim Murphy, who resigned over a sex scandal, won by 28 points in 2012, the last time the Democrats even bothered to field a candidate in the Western Pennsylvania district. Saccone, and national Republicans supporting the candidate, decided

Trump wants next spending
bill to punish sanctuary cities

The Trump administration has requested Congress move to strip sanctuary cities of federal grants in the spending bill due by the end of next week, a government official said Tuesday. The official briefed reporters aboard Air Force One as President Trump jetted to California to review the prototypes for his border wall. “We are 100 percent committed to challenging sanctuary cities. We will be successful,” the official said. But lawmakers on Capitol Hill have expressed skepticism about pressing the issue in the “omnibus” spending bill due by March 23, fearing it would spark a government shutdown showdown with Democrats.

Judge Thomas Ellis III, who is presiding over the second prosecution of Paul Manafort, wrote in a new order that the deposed Trump campaign chief may well spend the rest of his life in prison. Ellis imposed restrictive bond conditions against Manafort in the new order, concluding the severity of his alleged crimes and his considerable assets incentivize him to flee the country. “Defendant faces the very real possibility of spending the rest of his life in prison,” Ellis wrote. “In this regard, he poses a substantial risk of flight and the above-mentioned conditions are the least restrictive conditions that will reasonably

Activists howled indignation when Rex Tillerson was nominated to head the State Department, and now they are lamenting President Donald Trump’s decision to fire the former ExxonMobil CEO. Alarmists at Union of Concerned Scientists are hailing outgoing Secretary of State Tillerson as a voice of reason inside a tumultuous Trump administration. Support for the former oil producer within activist circles contrasts with their invective-filled criticism when Tillerson was first nominated. “In a strange kind of way, [Tillerson’s] experience at Exxon dealing with energy and heads of state and climate gave him a deeper understanding of the diplomatic, economic and political

I am still chuckling at Hillary Clinton’s speech in India. Among the things she said: If you look at the map of the United States, there is all that red in the middle, places where Trump won. What that map doesn’t show you is that I won the places that own two thirds of America’s Gross Domestic product. I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward. And his whole campaign, Make America Great Again, was looking backwards. You don’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women getting jobs, you don’t want to see that Indian

Washington Post congressional reporter Erica Werner tweeted on Tuesday that a "Benghazi bomb-thrower" and a "torture overseer" will be the new secretary of state and CIA director if they are confirmed by the U.S. Senate. President Donald Trump announced on Twitter Tuesday that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would be replaced by CIA Director Mike Pompeo, and Pompeo in turn would be replaced by CIA Deputy Director Gina Haspel.

The abrupt firing Tuesday of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson follows months of infighting between the State Department and White House over efforts by Tillerson to save the Iran nuclear deal and ignore President Donald Trump´s demands that the agreement be fixed or completely scrapped by the United States, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon. In the weeks leading up to Tillerson´s departure, he had been spearheading efforts to convince European allies to agree to a range of fixes to the nuclear deal that would address Iran´s ongoing ballistic missile program

Former CIA Director John Brennan recommended Gina Haspel to take over the position after President Donald Trump announced her nomination on Tuesday. (Snip) MSNBC host Hallie Jackson declared Brennan "demoted her" when he took over the agency in 2013 in her run-up to asking about his experience with her, but Brennan replied he hadn´t. "First of all, I never demoted her," Brennan said. "She was the acting director for operations when I arrived, and she has a wealth of experience and background, and she has more than three decades experience abroad as well as at headquarters."

Gina Haspel is a great

Don´t listen to those (like this CNN editorial masquerading as reporting) complaining that she was too tough on terrorists. Gina Haspel is a great choice to replace Mike Pompeo as CIA director. First off, she knows the nuts and bolts of human intelligence from the inside out. As a career CIA officer in the agency’s operations (or spying) arm, Haspel spent the early part of her career recruiting agents in the field to give their secrets to the U.S. But after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Haspel played a supervisory role at a CIA black site in Thailand and later,

A former Nike executive took living “off the grid” to a whole new level after Donald Trump became president when he decided to become a hermit on an Ohio farm and stop consuming news. Erik Hagerman, 53, told the New York Times moving to the Ohio pig farm where he resides alone is the only way he can cope with “the devastation” of Trump winning the 2016 presidential election. “It was draconian and complete,” he said in an interview the Times published Saturday. “It’s not like I wanted to just steer away from Trump or shift the conversation.

President Trump’s decision to promote Mike Pompeo to secretary of state is a huge step in the right direction. It means that, if Mr. Pompeo is confirmed, the administration will have in the top foreign policy job an officer who was first in his class at West Point, served as an officer of armor in Europe, soared at law school, mastered politics in Congress, has run the Central Intelligence Agency — and who agrees with the president. What a contrast with Secretary Tillerson. The ex-chairman of ExxonMobil had some wonderful instincts (such as his plan to cut the State Department

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is demanding President Trump’s CIA director nominee, Gina Haspel, clarify her position on torture because she participated in “one of the darkest chapters in American history.” Haspel, who has been with the CIA since 1985, has come under fire for her involvement concerning waterboarding and other interrogation methods that detainees at a covert CIA prison in Thailand were subjected to in 2002. “The torture of detainees in U.S. custody during the last decade was one of the darkest chapters in American history,” McCain, who was tortured during the Vietnam War, said in a statement Tuesday. “Ms. Haspel needs

Barack Obama keeps a close watch on his emotions. “I loved Spock,” he wrote in February 2015 in a presidential statement eulogizing Leonard Nimoy. Growing up in Hawaii, the young man who would later be called “No-Drama Obama” felt a special affinity for the Vulcan first officer of the U.S.S. Enterprise. “Long before being nerdy was cool, there was Leonard Nimoy,” the eulogy continued. “Leonard was Spock. Cool, logical, big-eared and level-headed.” It is the rare occasion when Obama lets his Spock mask slip. But November 2, 2016, was just such a moment.

The Florida school cop branded a coward for failing to tackle mass shooter Nikolas Cruz is seen for the first time - enjoying his taxpayer-funded retirement. Sheriff´s Deputy Scot Peterson, 54, chose to resign and retire rather than face an internal affairs investigation for ´seeking cover´ while AR-15 wielding Cruz slaughtered kids inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. That means the 33-year law enforcement veteran will keep his $60,000 pension unless he´s hit with a federal charge of failing to act, which legal experts say will be hard to prove. Peterson appeared happy and relaxed Saturday as he headed to a strip mall,

Italy: The Political Laboratory

Italy has long been the political laboratory of the West, creating fascism and eurocommunism, and playing a major role in the creation of the European Union. Its inconclusive national elections on March 4th provide us with a hazy view of the near future: redefinition of traditional politics, and perhaps even of the world at large. The most significant event on election day in Italy came when a young woman, topless for the occasion, confronted 82-year old Silvio Berlusconi at his voting place and pronounced him an irrelevancy. I wonder whom she voted for, although we can certainly be confident it

Bitter clingers. The 47 percent who are takers. You’d think after Barack Obama and Mitt Romney got burned for coining these appellations, ambitious pols would learn not to talk about the opposing party’s voters that way. Both those comments were said before private audiences and leaked out. But Hillary did them better by offering her diagnosis of the “basket of deplorables” at a public campaign event. And she refuses to learn even still. At a conference in India yesterday she confidently explained the 2016 election this way: I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product. . . .

When President Trump’s judicial nominees come before the Senate Judiciary Committee for their confirmation hearings, they had better be prepared to talk racial bias in the criminal justice system — or they are going to get an earful from Sen. Cory A. Booker. Michael B. Brennan, nominated to a federal appeals court, found out firsthand when he would not acknowledge that racial bias was rampant. “You’re aware that African-Americans are stopped more than whites for drug searches in this country, that there is no difference between blacks and whites for using drugs or dealing drugs, but they’re 3.7 times more

Rigid sexual orientations have defined the preference of men and women for decades; however, a new study is attempting to do away with strict definitions of sexuality. The study, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, argues that there’s no such thing as a “straight” man or woman. Rather, people operate on a spectrum. Researchers showed men and women different kinds of pornographic material. Rather than relying on self-reporting, the study looked at physiological responses to the sexual material. Namely pupil dilation, which is a sign of sexual arousal. The study found that women’s eyes dilated when they viewed a man and
