Worldwide effort set to keep

WASHINGTON — When President Donald Trump sits down for dinner in Saudi Arabia, caterers have ensured that his favorite meal - steak with a side of ketchup - will be offered alongside the traditional local cuisine. At NATO and the Group of 7 summits, foreign delegations have gotten word that the new U.S. president prefers short presentations and lots of visual aids. And at all of Trump’s five stops on his first overseas trip, his team has spent weeks trying to build daily downtime into his otherwise jam-packed schedule. It’s all part of a worldwide effort to accommodate America’s homebody

Fake news. Trump may not even like ketchup on his steak, but he knows that Nixon did. This is a nose tweak on the media. (To be fair, Nixon also liked it on cottage cheese.)

Trump loses patience with
his White House counsel
Politico, by NANCY COOK and JOSH DAWSEY    Original Article
Posted By: Toledo- 6/23/2017 3:21:03     Post Reply
White House counsel Don McGahn has largely stepped back from managing Donald Trump’s response to the expanding Russia investigation, but that hasn’t stopped the president from lashing out at him about it anyway. Trump started the week by giving McGahn, a loyal supporter who was among the first Washington establishment figures to sign on with his presidential campaign, a dressing down in the Oval Office for not doing more to quash the Russia probe early on. The episode — recounted by four people familiar with the conversation — came as part of a broader discussion on Monday about the president’s

´Pizzagate´ conspiracy theorist
gets four years in prison

An online conspiracy theory dubbed “pizzagate” ended Thursday with real-world consequences when a North Carolina man was sentenced to prison for arming himself with an assault rifle, traveling to the nation’s capital and firing his weapon inside a neighborhood pizza restaurant. Edgar Maddison Welch’s “ill-conceived plot” last year did “actual damage to the lives of real people”, a judge said before sentencing him to four years in prison. Judge Ketanji B Jackson said she had never seen a case like Welch’s, and she gave him a punishment on the upper end of guidelines, in part to send a message to

Bill O’Reilly’s return has been delayed as One America News Network has rescinded its job offer. OAN CEO Robert Herring publicly announced on Twitter Tuesday afternoon that the former Fox News host no longer had a standing offer. “We are pulling offer to @billoreilly, it could have paid him more than he made at Fox,” he tweeted. “We wish him luck.” Herring told Mediaite that O’Reilly and his agent had taken too long to make a decision after discussions about starting a talk show on OANN.

Briefing Is Slowly Dying

Over the course of the Trump administration, the White House’s daily press briefings have been pared progressively further back; they are now shorter, less frequent, and routinely held off-camera. The daily briefing is a venerable Washington tradition, though one that has often been a target of criticism. Media critic Jay Rosen has called for media outlets to “send the interns,” arguing that the briefing is a largely useless exercise in grandstanding. President Trump himself has publicly mused about canceling them, tweeting “Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future "press briefings" and hand out written responses for

The coast-to-coast opioid epidemic is swamping hospitals, with government data published Tuesday showing 1.27 million emergency room visits or inpatient stays for opioid-related issues in a single year. The 2014 numbers, the latest available for every state and the District of Columbia, reflect a 64 percent increase for inpatient care and a 99 percent jump for emergency room treatment compared to figures from 2005. Their trajectory likely will keep climbing if the epidemic continues unabated. The report, released by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), puts Maryland at the very top of the national list for inpatient care. The state,

HOPEWELL TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- Gov. Chris Christie, who fell out of the running for president and then for a position in the Trump administration, has worked to improve his image this year, dedicating himself to the state and nation´s opioid epidemic and opening up again to New Jersey´s press corps. It hasn´t worked. His approval rating is among the lowest in history for any governor, as he enters the final months of his last term. He is under attack by the leading Democratic and Republican candidates - including his top deputy - running to succeed him. He describes himself as "old news." Only

President Trump is set to travel today to Miami to begin reversing President Obama’s moves toward normal relations with Cuba. This is already being denounced by the liberal press. The Boston Globe reckons there will be “no winners, only losers, if Trump moves away from engagement with Cuba” and suggests that the “only constituency that wants to reverse course is the very small group of diehard, older Cuban-Americans, the Miami anti-Castristas, whom Trump credits for his victory in Florida last November.”

What an irony the thing that has liberals salivating the most over the prospect of injuring President Trump was caused by aspects of the man’s character the same liberals would never recognize. As things currently stand, the only charge I’ve seen that actually puts the Trump presidency in jeopardy is that he obstructed justice. This would be behavior that could either be prosecuted criminally or the subject of impeachment. Reports suggest the wrecking ball within the administration, a.k.a. Special Prosectuor Robert Mueller, has wasted no time leaping from probing the Russia collusion charges to investigating possible obstruction. Probably, after finding no snakes

Man on a Wire: Mike

Right around the time Donald Trump was boarding Air Force One en route to Saudi Arabia, soon to escape a capital city obsessed with investigations into his campaign’s ties with Russia and the firing of FBI Director James Comey, his vice president was receiving a booming ovation inside a fifth-floor Ritz-Carlton ballroom in the nearby Virginia suburbs. It was the afternoon of May 19, and Mike Pence stood before several hundred members of the Council for National Policy—a secretive group of conservative movement activists, donors and intellectuals that meets under off-the-record rules—and downplayed the perception of a presidency in crisis.

Camille Paglia is one America´s smartest and most fearless writers. Like Elvis, she´s the kind of superstar who really needs no introduction—though it is worth pointing out that Pantheon has just published a collection of her essays on sex, gender, and feminism, titled Free Women, Free Men. It´s fantastic and if you love her work, it´s must-reading. (And there´s another collection due out in the Fall of 2018, which is more good news.)

The end of the Supreme Court term looms, and with it the prospect — the terrifying prospect — of a retirement. Specifically, the retirement of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who will turn 81 next month and is the longest-serving current justice, named to the high court almost 30 years ago. So if Kennedy is inclined to retire, it is hard to begrudge him that choice. But his departure would be terrible for the court and terrible for the country. It could not come at a worse time. Any court vacancy these days, under a president of either party, triggers a battle

A feminist magazine is calling on all white women to “do their part to prevent white supremacy” and abort their white babies. This is sick beyond words. The feminist Medusa Magazine reported: In a progressive society, it is often white families that stand in the way of equality and justice. Systemic white supremacy depends, first and foremost, on the white family unit. When white conquerors forcefully penetrated the indigenous, egalitarian homeland of the Native peoples of America, they were quick to replicate their white societies, initiating their parasitism by establishing white plantations, headed by white fathers, submissive white mothers, and,

At last we know why Chicago’s homicide level is so out of control: Gangs, not police control the streets. The gangs know it; the police know it; and now, thanks to DNAinfo.com/Chicago, we know it. A week ago, Chicago street gangs held a huge party in a park, with a thousand people attending, some brandishing firearms, terrifying neighbors for hours. The police sent 25 squad cars, yet were outnumbered and unable to really do anything. (snip)Obviously, there is no political will to take back control of the streets. So everyone gets the message that gangs rule. No wonder the murder

Ramadan will come to an end this weekend with the major Muslim festival of Eid al-Fitr, and thus far President Donald Trump’s recognition of Islam’s holiest month has been limited to a statement that almost exclusively addressed violence and terrorism. Breaking with a tradition that dates back more than 20 years, to Bill Clinton’s administration, the White House will not be hosting an iftar—the meal Muslims consume to break their fast—in 2017.

So I’ve been wondering: Why on earth does a prosecutor, brought in to investigate a case in which there is no apparent crime, need a staff of 14 lawyers? Or, I should say, “14 lawyers and counting.” According to the press spokesman for special counsel Robert Mueller—yeah, he’s got a press spokesman, too—there are “several more in the pipeline.” Concededly, none of Mueller’s recruits requires Senate confirmation, as do Justice Department officials—notwithstanding that the former may end up playing a far more consequential role in the fate of the Trump administration. But does it seem strange to anyone else that, by comparison,

Liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy may announce his retirement on Monday, June 26. That’s the scuttlebutt among both liberal and conservative circles that has been escalating since last month. (Snip) Rumors have been swirling for months that both Justice Kennedy, 80, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 84, will retire soon given their advanced age and long tenures on the Supreme Court.Anthony Kennedy was appointed by Ronald Reagan in 1987, while Ginsburg was appointed by Bill Clinton in 1993.
