Prisoners´ family: Trump ´personally´
engaged Egypt to save aid workers

Washington Examiner, by Anna Giaritelli

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/21/2017 6:03:05 AM

An American woman and her Egyptian husband who had been imprisoned by the Egyptian government for three years arrived at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland late Thursday and will visit President Trump at the White House on Friday. Aya Hijazi and Mohamed Hassanein were among the group of six aid workers who were locked up in 2014 over allegations of child abuse and trafficking charges. After years of failed negotiations by the Obama administration, a family member of the couple credited Trump with "personally" stepping in to free him and his wife, as well as the four others. "It´s been

My guess is that the msm will give obama the credit rather than blaming him for supporting the muslim brotherhood in Egypt who imprisoned them.

At the risk of feeding the troll, Aya Hijazi is a natural born American citizen of legal immigrant parents. Her lawful husband by extention deserves respect.
Please peddle your xenophobia elsewhere.

Thank you #3...what a bizarre assumption from #2.

But, what an amazing story...one would think this would´ve been one of the lead stories on the morning shows, but not a peep.

Trump won´t tout his wins, so those that benefit will have to do it for him. Here is a man that knows how to be a President. It is a hard job to bring the USA back from years of attempted ruin by former Presidents. MAGA.

Democratic lawmakers and activists cheered Earth Day in rainy Washington, D.C., on Saturday at the "March for Science." Organizers of the event told the Washington Examiner´s Robert King that the march would not function as an anti-Trump demonstration, but many of President Trump´s vocal critics made their voices heard via the march anyway. "Science is the pursuit of truth for the public interest," tweeted Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, former Democratic Party vice presidential candidate in 2016. "Pres Trump can´t dismiss this fact, or all those marching today #MarchForScience." Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy trained his sights on the government in a

How the Queen Mother was even thirstier and

The tourists milling around outside Buckingham Palace stared in amazement as the Queen Mother walked through its gates following an impromptu stroll from her home at nearby Clarence House. I was as surprised as anyone that she had made the journey on foot. As her equerry — a glorified word for fixer and organiser — I had advised her that unexpectedly heavy traffic meant it would be impossible for her to make a planned lunch engagement at the Palace on time and suggested that we should put it off. ‘Nonsense,’ she had announced. ‘We’ll just have to walk.’ And so

A few weeks ago I was watching a segment on "Fox & Friends" about Christie Brinkley, at age 63, rocking a swimsuit on the cover of Sports Illustrated. She appeared flawless. Beautiful long, blonde hair – gorgeous smile. Her face was glowing with youth. Her arms looked toned and tanned. She looked half her age. “I’ll have what she’s having, please!” I yelled out from the back of the studio to my friends Ainsley, Steve and Brian. I was serious. I wanted to know all her secrets. The producers, realizing this was a pretty big story, booked a dermatologist on

In the midst of ongoing debate about Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and elections in France, former President Barack Obama spoke on the phone with French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron on Thursday. “Former President Barack Obama gently waded back into international politics on Thursday, talking by phone with French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron,” Politico reported. Macron, who, like Obama, favors France’s remaining in the European Union, is in an almost neck-and-neck race with candidate Marine Le Pen ahead of the first round of French elections on Sunday. Obama’s spokesman, however, denied that the phone call and Macron’s

On Monday morning, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to review the case of Michel v. McConnell, where the courts below rejected a citizen’s effort to sue senators for inaction on D.C. Circuit Chief Judge Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court. The lower courts’ opinions explain why another controversial dispute, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) v. Donald J. Trump, will also fail—with only days left until the government’s response is due in that case. Disappointed with the process of the Senate’s refusal to hold a vote on Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court, Steven S. Michel sued

The Washington Post´s E.J. Dionne wrote an opinion article that lectures Donald Trump that he can’t just do what he wants. A few of the examples he gives are that he hasn’t released his tax returns, that White House visitor logs will no longer be made public, that he spends a lot of time at his house in Florida, and that instead of telling the President of Turkey what Dionne wanted him to say he congratulated him for winning (heaven forbid). None of the things Dionne sites in his article violates Trump’s oath of office or the Constitution. Unlike Obama,

   

 

  


 
Is This The Most Racist High
School Assignment Ever?
Daily Caller, by Eric Owens    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/22/2017 4:04:33     Post Reply
A taxpayer-funded high school in North Carolina has come under criticism from local parents because a history teacher gave students a blatantly racist assignment involving a bomb shelter and an impending nuclear war. The unidentified teacher distributed the assignment at Olympic High School in Charlotte, reports local CBS affiliate WBTV. The assignment — called “Bomb Shelter Activity” — forces students to use skin color and ethnic background to choose four strangers who will be allowed enter a bomb shelter prior to a nuclear attack. There’s a “40-year-old Black female doctor who is a lesbian,” for example. There’s a “25-year-old Hispanic

The Trump administration put nine of the country’s top sanctuary cities on notice Friday that they could soon have to give up some federal funds unless they can prove they are no longer thwarting Homeland Security’s efforts to deport illegal immigrants. The entire state of California is being targeted, as are the cities of New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Las Vegas, New Orleans and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Cook County in Illinois and Miami-Dade County in Florida round out the list. In letters to each of the nine jurisdictions the Justice Department said they signed documents last year, when they applied for Byrne

During today’s broadcast of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, co-host Joe Scarborough offered up some high praise to former Republican Vice-Presidential nominee Sarah Palin over the way she handled her interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper yesterday. What was he commending her for? Well, he seemed to be extremely impressed that she was able to speak somewhat articulately. Highlighting right away that he wasn’t trying to be “snide,” Scarborough expressed amazement that “she spoke in complete sentences.” “Over the past five, six, seven years every time she got on TV,” he explained, “she rambled to such a degree — it was word salad.”

Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney appears on Bloomberg News to discuss the seismic, epic, thundershock confrontational clash that is about to take place between the Trump administration and the DC UniParty. There are no adjectives capable of describing the scope and immeasurable scale of the battle that is about to transpire between the White House and the Democrat/Republican UniParty. MONEY is where every entity within the full-swamp goes nuclear against President Trump and the administration. Despite all prior discussions toward this end, it is doubtful that more than one-in-a-million people can fully grasp the dynamic at play.

Since Hillary Clinton´s 2016 loss at the hands of President Trump, the Democrat Party has been struggling to find its new leader. Even over the course of the campaign season, clashes between Clinton supporters and those of one-time rival candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) exposed a very real fracture among Democrats — one that party leaders are still struggling to mend. On Thursday, during an interview with “Morning Joe” cohost Mika Brzezinski, longtime Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett made it clear that there are at least two more popular Democrats whose names can be removed from that list of America´s

The Egyptian American charity worker who was sent to prison for three years in Cairo met with President Trump Friday at the White House. “We are very happy to have her back home,” Trump said. “Thank you very much." The White House has been working for weeks with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to secure the release of Aya Hijazi, 30, as well as her husband Mohamed Hassanein and four other humanitarian workers. Wade McMullen, managing attorney at the Robert F Kennedy Human Rights organization which has been advocating on Hijazi´s behalf, told National Public Radio that Sisi’s visit to Washington came

Donald Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the US, a group of psychiatrists has warned during a conference at Yale University.

(Snip) She added that xenophobia played a big part in Trump’s election campaign. “He got that people are deeply angry,” she said. “People are right to be angry, but Donald Trump said it’s their fault—those other people.

A Chicago artist has finished his mural of Michelle Obama in a colorful image that features the former first lady as an Egyptian queen. The painting by artist Chris Devins was completed Friday on the southeast corner of Chappel Avenue and 74th Street in South Shore. That´s two blocks from the former first lady´s childhood home at 7436 S. Euclid Ave. and across the street from Bouchet Elementary, which she attended when it was known as Bryn Mawr School. "I wanted to present her as what I think she is, so she´s clothed as an Egyptian queen. I thought that was appropriate,"

The student government at Western Kentucky University on Tuesday voted in favor of giving free tuition to black students. The school’s Student Government Associationpassed a resolution by 19-10 supporting slavery reparations for black students in the form of free tuition and free access to the public Bowling Green campus. The resolution also recommends that the university create a task force to “assess the feasibility of test-optional admissions and geographically-weighted admissions,” claiming that some standardized testing poses a disadvantage for needy students and perpetuates inequality and “white supremacy,” The Bowling Green Daily News reported. “We demand reparations for the systemic denial of access to

A Harvard University office devoted to LGBT issues reportedly has issued a flier telling students that gender identity can change as frequently as “day to day.” The flier from the Ivy League schools BGLTQ Student Life office, headlined “Get the facts about gender diversity,” informs readers that “Sex assigned at birth and gender identity are not necessarily the same,” Campus Reform reported Thursday. The flyer adds that “gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, hormonal makeup, physical anatomy, and/or how one is perceived in daily life.” The document also seems to categorize speech that challenges or disagrees with transgenderism as “violence.” “Transphobic misinformation is a

Legendary musician Bruce Springsteen and singer/songwriter Joe Grushecky released a new song, "That´s What Makes Us Great," to protest President Trump. Grushecky wrote the anthem just as Trump was being sworn in as president in January. "I had this song, and Bruce and I had been talking," Grushecky told the Pittsburg Post-Gazette in an interview. "I sent it to him and he liked it. I said, ´What do you think about singing on it?´ He gave it the Bruce treatment." "Don´t tell me a lie / and sell it as a fact / I´ve been down that road before /

Steel yourselves. Barack Obama’s about to emerge from the shadows — and first stop, University of Chicago. Why there? No doubt, it’s one of the more receptive breeding grounds for his particular brand of activism — the activism he’ll be touting to malleable student-age minds while engaging in, as his people called it, a “conversation about community organizing and civic engagement.” Make no mistake about it. This is about teaching the upcoming generation, loud as it already is about all topics that offend, to get even louder, even Leftist Prouder, and to — here’s the gist — use that Leftist

By his twenties, Kyle Kaylor imagined he would be living on his own, nearing a college degree, and on his way to a job that fulfilled him. Instead, at 21, he found himself out of school, living with his parents, and "stuck" working as a manager at a fast food restaurant scraping to make hand-to-mouth. Launching into adulthood has been tricky, he said. "It became too difficult financially to be in school and not working," says Kaylor, who dropped out of Lincoln Christian University, in Illinois, after one semester because of a money crunch.

Former President Barack Obama will make his first public appearance Monday, hosting an event on civic engagement on his old stomping grounds at the University of Chicago. The event, open to the public but with limited tickets, will bring together younger leaders and students “for a conversation on community organizing and civic engagement.” It won’t be an explicitly political event. As an Illinois state senator, Obama once represented the neighborhood where the campus is located and also was a law professor at the university. He last stopped by the campus in 2016, using an event at the law school to make a
