Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Monday he received assurances during talks with President Donald Trump and his administration of increasing American support as he presses his country´s campaign against Islamic State. "We have been given assurances that the (U.S.) support will not only continue but will accelerate for Iraq to accomplish the task," Abadi said following talks with Trump at the White House.

Good news. President Trump promising to clean up Iraq of Daesh, something that 0bama let fester intentionally by removing our troops.

0bama did more damage to us than Russia, China, N Korea and Iran could have done combined. Trump might want to take it slow. Our military needs a ton more money than what they have just been allotted by Trump. And ... and it is going to take some TIME to get back on top of things militarily. It took 8 long years to put America back to pre WWII levels. It just doesn´t remake itself overnight. Most people seem to have no idea how 0bama got us back to the stone age as swiftly and completely as he did.

Its goin to take TIME and a h*ll of a lot MORE money to undo 0bamaland´s Amerika. A TON more, regardless of how the leftist media try to say or make it seem otherwise.

House Democrats celebrate the
GOP’s failure on health care bill
Washington Examiner [DC], by Seth McLaughlin    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/24/2017 4:56:52     Post Reply
House Democrats took a “victory” lap Friday after their Republican colleagues pulled the plug on their plan to scrap Obamacare. “Today is a great day for our country,” said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat. “What happened on the floor is a victory for the American people.” House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, pulled the bill Friday after it was clear that President Trump and House GOP leaders had fallen short of securing enough support to pass their plan to overhaul the health care system. It marked the second time in as many day that Republicans had to scrap their plan

Washington - Leaders of the Congressional Black Caucus met with President Donald Trump on Wednesday about infrastructure and reducing urban crime, calling the sit-down a "positive" first step toward finding common ground. The lawmakers presented Trump with a 130-page policy proposal titled "We Have a Lot to Lose: Solutions to Advance Black Families in the 21st Century," a reference to Trump´s repeated query on the campaign trail asking what did blacks have to lose by supporting him. "We think it´s a positive first start and we´re going to continue the dialogue," Representative Karen Bass, a Democrat from

NBC reporter takes heat for calling
deadly London terror attack ‘small-bore’

One of the intelligence reporters for NBC News faced fierce backlash on social media on Wednesday for referring to London’s terror attack as “small bore.” Four people were killed and at least 20 people were injured near the British parliament in a terror attack that utilized a vehicle to plow through victims. The knife-wielding suspect was eventually subdued on Westminster Bridge, which prompted NBC’s Ken Dilanian to warn over 17,000 followers not to “freak out.” “I know it’s a big story, but every time we freak out about a small-bore terror attack we play into their hands,” Mr. Dilian said. (Snip) Negative feedback followed.

Washington - Whoops. The Transportation Department said Wednesday an employee inadvertently posted a tweet under Secretary Elaine Chao´s name urging a Democratic member of Congress to sue President Donald Trump. Rep. Maxine Waters, a California Democrat, tweeted on Tuesday, "Get ready for impeachment," an apparent reference to Trump. Chao´s offical account responded Wednesday: "SUE HIS VERY SOUL MAXINE!!!" (Tweet) But according to a Transportation Department spokesperson, the tweet was "posted by an employee with access to the account" who "took action outside of his scope of work and duties and without any approvals." "We are taking appropriate action,"

The Supreme Court on Wednesday unanimously raised the bar for the educational benefits owed to millions of children with disabilities in one of the most significant special-education cases to reach the high court in decades. The opinion rejected a lower standard set by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit and used in a subsequent case by President Trump’s nominee to the high court, Neil Gorsuch, during his tenure on the appeals court. (Snip) In its unanimous ruling, the Supreme Court said a child’s “educational program must be appropriately ambitious in light of his circumstances” and that “every child should have




Mexican family receives $1m settlement

The family of a Mexican teenager who died after being told to drink from a bottle of liquid meth has been awarded $1 million in damages. Cruz Marcelino Velazquez Acevedo, 16, arrived from Tijuana at the US border in November 2013, shaking with nerves and speaking quickly. He had no criminal record and is believed to have been paid around $150 to take the drug across the border. When confronted by border police, he said the liquid was apple juice. They asked him to drink it to prove it was not harmful – and two hours later, screaming and convulsing, he died. (Snip) “I don’t think they deliberately set out to kill the boy,” he said.

North Korea´s Most Surprising Acquaintances

(Video) - North Korea has two allies and key trade partners: China, and Russia. However, the country has other global associates. It has a working embassy in Equatorial Guinea, and it was known to send workers to Western Europe. After the assassination of Kim Jong Nam—the half brother of Kim Jong Un—Malaysia’s visa-free relationship with North Korea became internationally known. Many African countries dominate the list of those with relationships with North Korea.(Snip) For countries that get sidelined by the U.S. and E.U., North Korea is an appealing tradepartner.

One of the most important things we learned Monday from the House Intelligence Committee hearings on Russian influence of the 2016 elections was that the hackers may have wanted to get caught. FBI director James Comey said Russia´s cyber intruders were "unusually loud," as though they "wanted us to see what they were doing." That´s counterintuitive. The Russians have officially denied taking active measures in the 2016 election. They have complained that the toxic environment in Washington has scuttled any chance for a reset in the relationship with the U.S. So if Kremlin proxies were meddling in

The head of the Los Angeles Police Department on Tuesday warned of a "strong correlation" between dramatic drops in violent crimes being reported by Hispanics in Los Angeles and fears of being deported, suggesting that the community may be avoiding contact with local law enforcement in the wake of immigration polices favored by the Trump administration. Newly-released LAPD crime statistics for 2017 show that among Hispanics, reports of rape have dropped 25 percent while those of spousal abuse have decreased by 9.8 percent. Similar reductions from the start of this year were not found in any other ethnic group,

The Banning Police Department´s school resource officer began looking into the threat and the ´Kids With Guns Protocol´ was activated, authorities said. During the investigation, officers found evidence indicating that two students were involved in the planning of a possible shooting at the high school. Both students were later arrested and booked into Riverside County Juvenile

Seoul- U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has delivered a strong message to China that it is "uncalled for" for Beijing to retaliate against the ongoing deployment of an advanced missile defense system in South Korea, a senior U.S. official said Wednesday. (Snip) "The secretary conveyed it very strongly to the Chinese side and the secretary also said in private meetings that really retaliating against a defensive system which China has done was something that was uncalled for and something of a growing concern for us. So I believe those points were well delivered by the secretary," he added. China has been stepping up its economic

President Trump peeled back the curtain on his plans for the US space program on Tuesday — singing a sweeping NASA policy bill into effect and reaffirming the agency’s commitment to human exploration and putting a man on Mars. “For almost six decades NASA’s work has inspired millions and millions of Americans to imagine distant worlds and a better future right here on Earth,” Trump explained during the signing, which was attended by astronauts, lawmakers and scientists. “With this legislation, we support NASA’s scientists, engineers, astronauts and their pursuit of discovery,” he said. “It’s been a long time since a

Former President Barack Obama´s journey to French Polynesia was undertaken so he could write his memoir. Obama arrived at a luxury resort frequented by Hollywood stars in mid-March, though it was unknown at the time what he was doing there. The Washington Post reported Sunday that Obama is writing his White House memoir during his extended stay at the eco-friendly resort in French Polynesia´s atoll of Tetiaroa. Bidding for the former president and first lady Michelle Obama´s book rights surpassed $60 million.

Is a guaranteed paycheck from the government, with no strings attached, the answer to the relentless rise of automation? The concept might sound far-fetched, but a so-called universal basic income (UBI), is currently one of the most hotly debated policy topics being floated as a means to address income inequality and the disruption that technology poses to the workforce. UBI is being tested in Finland and other international markets, but has received decidedly mixed reactions. Meanwhile, developments in robotics and artificial intelligence have grave implications for the labor force. A report issued this week from consulting firm PwC found that

House Speaker Paul Ryan didn’t just step in it again, big time, on the Ryancare bill this week. The Wisconsin Republican unmasked himself as the man most capable of demolishing his own party and the Trump presidency. The Ryan American Healthcare Bill is a piece of moderate GOP trash that Mr. Ryan owns and has been trying and failing miserably to sell as the long-promised Republican repeal and replacement of Obamacare. By telling conservatives in the House and across America to go have intimate relations with themselves and not meddle in the medical-care matters of him and the rest of

Matryoshkas are Russian nesting dolls. Inside each doll are several others smaller but identically shaped characters until you get to the smallest one inside. Studying what we have learned of the timeline -- and we still don’t have the entire story -- we see Wikileaks, the smallest, at the core, and Obama as the largest piece in what is the most historically outrageous misuse of the people and institutions of government for partisan advantage.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool Huma Abedin four times, and she’ll still take you back. After years of public humiliation by her sext-a-holic husband, Anthony Weiner, 40-year-old Abedin finally separated from the former congressman in August, one day after The Post reported that he had sent yet another explicit photo to a woman — this one showing his toddler son asleep beside him. But sources tell The Post that Hillary Clinton’s righthand woman is now giving the marriage another try. “Huma has been working hard on her relationship with Anthony,” said a source close to the Abedin family. “He has been

It is hard to overestimate the damage the Freedom Caucus has done to the fledgling presidency of Donald Trump, and to the country. By blocking the American Health Care Act of 2017, the conservative group has guaranteed that Americans will struggle forward under the burden of Obamacare. In the next few months insurers will announce their premium hikes for the coming year; chances are, given the continuing withdrawal of major companies from the marketplaces and the ongoing failure of the bill to attract enough young and healthy participants, the new rates will not be pretty. Last year premiums went up

The first cocktail party at Barack Obama’s new office last month was certainly more casual than any he had hosted in recent years. The wine bore a random assortment of labels, as if assembled potluck-style. The self-serve appetizers were set out in the narrow hallway. The host, tieless, eschewed formal remarks, as a few dozen of his old administration officials — Joe Biden and former chief of staff Denis McDonough, as well as more junior ones — mingled in a minimalist wood-paneled suite that could be mistaken for a boutique law firm. “It was a bit of a shock to

Biden spoke at Colgate University on Friday in New York and said that while he knew not becoming a candidate was the best decision for his family, he regrets not becoming president. “I had planned on running for president and although it would have been a very difficult primary, I think I could have won.

Muslims in London were reacting with anger and frustration to the resurfacing of stereotypes about adherents to their religion following the apparent Islamic State group terror attack near Parliament on Wednesday. The working assumption was that the perpetrator of the driving and stabbing attacks that left four victims dead and dozens more injured was a Muslim before the assailant was even identified. (Snip) Masood´s identity was not revealed until about 24 hours after the attack, right around when ISIS claimed responsibility for it. Prior to that, no one other than law enforcement knew who the assailant was, but that didn´t

Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said Sunday that Democrats are ready to work with President Trump to fix Obamacare if Republicans abandon their drive to repeal the law. The New York Democrat made the offer in the wake of Friday’s decision by Mr. Trump and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan to pull the GOP bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act or ACA. The bill lacked enough Republican support to pass, including many defectors among conservatives. Democrats formed a united front against the effort. “We Democrats, provided our Republican colleagues drop [repeal and
