Watts spat: “Here’s what happens: There’s a story about me and then immediately the gun lobby and the trolls, they try to pick apart who I am.” The Woman Who ‘Totally Understands’ Donald Trump Mon, 27 39 2016 04:39:34 GMT 02d58742bae2e0244672cd7a1975c5a7aff61b0a New York Times, by Michael M.

Suddenly, she found herself a near'constant presence by Mr. Trump’s side, flying in his jet, living rent'free in a Trump'owned apartment and attending to his mercurial moods.

Report: It´s harder to know who´s paying for political ads Mon, 27 04 2016 02:04:26 GMT 9c29e2d8f8424bbd0cec4c5369ec01a7bbc04baa Associated Press, by Geoff Mulvihill Posted By: JoniTx- Mon, 27 04 2016 02:04:26 GMT It´s getting harder to know who is funding political advertising at the state level as more money becomes anonymous or is filtered from one political action committee to another, a new study finds.

"I believe that the church not only should apologize to the person who is gay whom it has offended," the Pope said, "but has to apologize to the poor, to exploited women, to children exploited for labor; it has to ask forgiveness for having blessed many weapons."

Under the Obama administration’s expansive interpretation of executive authority, legal immigrants seeking citizenship through the nation’s Naturalization process are now exempt from a key part of the Oath of Allegiance. Immigrants seeking to become citizens no longer have to pledge to “bear arms on behalf of the United States.” They can opt out of that part of the Oath. Nor do they have to cite any specific religious belief that forbids them to perform military service.

TransCanada claimed that Obama spent seven years using “arbitrary and contrived” analyses and justifications to delay the pipeline for political reasons. TransCanada’s suit also says that the company had reason to believe that the pipeline would be approved before it was rejected by the Obama administration in November. “None of that technical analysis or legal wrangling was material to the administration’s final decision,” TransCanada said in its lawsuit. “Instead, the rejection was symbolic and based Democratic Sen.

The policy change is another example of how progressives bypass Congress and the voters by using the military to promote and advance social changes nationwide. Since 2009, for example, the military has been used to aid illegal immigrants and to help change the definition of marriage so that it can include single'sex couples — regardless of the far'left policies’ impact on combat readiness and recruitment.

The database – called “Rap Back” – is run by the FBI and will alert Hawaiian law enforcement if a Hawaiian gun owner is arrested for a crime anywhere in the United States. Fox 59 quoted Ige saying, “This will allow county police departments in Hawaii to evaluate whether the firearm owner may continue to legally possess and own firearms.” The bill, which received heavy opposition from gun owners and gun rights groups, was passed by a
