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.

What Dallas needs to do
better to attract the next Toyota
Dallas Morning News [TX], by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/17/2017 7:35:36     Post Reply
With Toyota moving 4,000 workers into its newly minted North American headquarters in Plano, North Texas faces another round of growing pains. Housing costs are up, and new units are in short supply despite fast-paced construction in the northern suburbs. Traffic congestion is going to get worse. And more schools will be needed as young corporate families transfer to the region. The Dallas-Fort Worth area is one of the hottest local economies in the nation, and these are challenges born of success. That success doesn´t affect all portions of the region equally, though. The city of Dallas has to resolve some educational,

National Institutes of Health lobbies

The National Institutes for Health on Wednesday urged Congress to resist budget cuts proposed by President Trump, saying the loss of funds would derail life-saving work and induce budget-busting medical costs down the road. “It’s really part of our army of defense against diseases that will ultimately have an impact right here in our own country. Even though they are foreigners, they are helping us to be protected from disease,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, NIH’s director for infectious diseases, told House lawmakers. Congress has been largely sympathetic to the agency’s pleas. Lawmakers increased NIH’s budget by $2 billion

Twenty-one accused members of the violent MS-13 gang were arrested before dawn Wednesday as federal and local investigators forced their way into homes across Los Angeles County in a sweep that came as a result of a two-year racketeering investigation. Investigators with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the FBI and officers with the Los Angeles Police Department raided two dozen locations.

Detroit - Ford — facing heavy costs for new technology and slowing U.S. car sales — is cutting 1,400 non-factory jobs in North America and Asia Pacific this year in an effort to boost profits and rescue its sagging stock price. The company will offer voluntary early retirement and separation packages to around 10 percent of salaried workers in departments such as sales, marketing and human resources. It expects the actions to be complete by the end of September. The cuts are the biggest to Ford’s U.S. white collar staff since 2007, when 7,200 workers took voluntary buyout packages. Ford believes it will meet its targets by

A Sharia court in Indonesia´s conservative Aceh province sentenced two gay men to a public caning Wednesday. The men, ages 20 and 23, were arrested in March by vigilantes within their community in Banda Aceh, the capital of Aceh province. They were subsequently found guilty of violating Aceh´s strict Islamic laws and were sentenced to 85 lashes, according to Evendi, the head of Sharia law enforcement in Banda Aceh. Khairil Jamal, the lead judge, said that "the court has proven that the defendants without doubt are legally guilty of committing sodomy." He said, "No evidence was found to justify and forgive them.

A cat measuring almost four feet is vying for the title of the world´s longest after taking Instagram by storm. Omar, a Maine Coon, measures 120cm from nose to tail, according to his owner. The 14kg feline is fed on raw kangaroo meat and needs a dog crate to be taken to the vet, the BBC reported. "It´s the only meat we could find that he actually wants to eat," owner Stephy Hirst, of Melbourne, Australia, told the broadcaster. "He does take up a bit too much room on the bed so he gets locked out of the bedroom at night," Ms Hirst added. The current official longest cat — according to Guinness World Records — is another Maine

Washington - President Donald Trump´s consequential meeting with two of Russia´s top foreign operatives earlier this month has cast a pall over his administration, raising questions about the President´s ability to handle classified information when meeting with sometimes adversarial foreign leaders. (Photos) (Snip) No United States media were invited in for the meeting, but a photographer from TASS, the Russian state media organization, was in the room for at least part of the meeting.

When word came to City Hall on Thursday, it appeared to confirm the administration’s worst fears: federal immigration agents had been to an elementary school in Queens to inquire about a fourth-grade student. (Snip) The immigration agents who visited Public School 58 in Maspeth on May 11 were not enforcement officers, but fraud investigators for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, said Katherine Tichacek, a spokeswoman for the agency.

Unnamed Sources = Fake
News: The Bloodless Coup

We are witness to an attempted coup branded as the “resistance movement” being perpetrated by left-wing liberals led by EX-president Barack Hussein Obama and the saboteurs he left behind in the US government. The mainstream media has colluded with the Leftists by deliberately disseminating FAKE news from UNNAMED sources and insisting it is “real” news. Historically coups and military juntas are led by political opposition leaders and perpetrated by the army - they are bloody confrontations resulting in victory and defeat. The seated government remains or is removed by the opposition party.

(Video) - President Trump tweeted Tuesday morning that he had the "absolute right" to share information about national security with Russian officials in the White House last week, after The Washington Post reported that the information was highly sensitive and classified.

(Snip) Executive Order 13526 - As president, Trump has the legal power to declassify information. He also has the authority to share information with whomever he wants, including foreign adversaries.

Tehran - Iran’s supreme leader issued a warning on Wednesday, saying there was a chance that some individuals — he was not clear which — might interfere in Friday’s presidential elections. In 2009, widespread allegations of fraud led to street protests that rocked the country for six months. In a statement posted on his personal website, the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, called on the state institutions that organize the elections to “be vigilant to protect and secure people’s votes.” “Some people might wish to make infringements,” he added, though he did not specify if he was referring to people in state

Ohio Gov. John Kasich said during a joint CNN town hall Tuesday with Vermont Sen. Bernard Sanders that his instincts were right about President Trump. Mr. Kasich, who unsuccessfully ran against Mr. Trump in last year’s Republican presidential primary, said the allegations that Mr. Trump shared Israeli intelligence about the Middle East with the Russians is “a very, very serious matter.” “I don’t like people that say, ‘I told you so,’ but you both know how much pressure, criticism and heat I took because I was the one Republican who would not endorse Donald Trump,” he told CNN’s Dana Bash

Apparently, people are now marrying themselves. Well, more specifically, sad, bitter feminists with a millennial-like flare for narcissism are marrying themselves after sticking it to The Patriarchy by choosing to put their careers ahead of their personal lives. “I would describe it as women saying yes to themselves,” Anderson, 37, told WUSA9. “It means that we are enough, even if we are not partnered with someone else. "You´re worth it!" added the feminist. In the new, sad trend called "sologamy," women are committing themselves to themselves with their own wedding ceremony.

Republican Sen. John McCain issued a blistering statement Tuesday morning condemning President Donald Trump´s reported disclosure of classified information to Russian diplomats during a meeting in the Oval Office last week. "The reports that the president shared sensitive intelligence with Russian officials are deeply disturbing," said the Arizona senator, who is notably hawkish on Russia. "Reports that this information was provided by a US ally and shared without its knowledge sends a troubling signal to America´s allies and partners around the world and may impair their willingness to share intelligence with us in the future." The Washington Post reported Monday night that Trump

President Trump will interview four candidates for FBI director — including former independent senator Joe Lieberman and the acting head of the bureau, Andrew McCabe — White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Wednesday. Trump will also meet with Frank Keating, a former Oklahoma governor, and Richard McFeely, a former top FBI agent, Spicer said during a briefing on Air Force One as Trump returned to Washington after speaking at the US Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut. The interviews come a week after the president abruptly fired former FBI Director James Comey, who was investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential

Cool, even-keeled, no-drama Barack Obama is one of the few people in the country who hasn’t publicly opined on the tweets and turmoil wrought by President Trump. And so a persistent question to those close to the former president is: What does Obama really think of the man now occupying the Oval Office? “He’s nothing but a bullsh–ter,” Obama told two friends early last November, describing an election night phone call with Trump, in which the businessman suddenly professed his “respect” and “admiration” for Obama—after years of hectoring.

Why would a loyal staffer who adores the president of the United States leak damaging information to the national media that makes the president look bad? That is one of many questions that must be examined in light of the Washington Post-led story on President Trump’s Oval Office conversation with the Russians. (Snip) White House staff have ample incentive to leak to the press when they believe the president needs to pay attention or be admonished. This was the case with the source I know.

James Comey was lying in wait. His gun was cocked, he took aim and fired. But his weapon was empty. Three months ago, the then-FBI Director met with President Trump. Following their private conversation, Comey did what he always does –he wrote a memorandum to himself memorializing the conversation. Good lawyers do that routinely. Now, only after Comey was fired, the memo magically surfaces in an inflammatory New York Times report which alleges that Mr. Trump asked Comey to end the Michael Flynn investigation. Those who don’t know the first thing about the law immediately began hurling words like “obstruction of justice”, “high crimes

At certain times Donald Trump has seemed like a budding authoritarian, a corrupt Nixon, a rabble-rousing populist or a big business corporatist. But as Trump has settled into his White House role, he has given a series of long interviews, and when you study the transcripts it becomes clear that fundamentally he is none of these things. At base, Trump is an infantalist. There are three tasks that most mature adults have sort of figured out by the time they hit 25. Trump has mastered none of them. Immaturity is becoming the dominant note of his presidency, lack of self-control his leitmotif.

Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice slammed President Trump and his administration on Tuesday for their handling of foreign policy and direction of American leadership around the world. “Since I left the White House, I’ve become deeply concerned that the U.S. is squandering one of our greatest strategic assets: America’s leadership of the world.” Ms. Rice explained at the liberal group Center for American Progress’ annual conference. “It seems that the current administration looks at the world and sees only threats: immigrants, refugees, Muslims, Mexicans and even trade.
