The old Fox News is gone
The Week, by Daniel McCarthy

Even before Roger Ailes died, the House That Ailes Built was falling into ruin. It was an American twist on a tale familiar to readers of Evelyn Waugh — how the wreck of a great estate parallels the downfall of the man who tried to rebuild it. Except Ailes did not rebuild, he created. Fox News was his brainchild, a glimmer in his eye as far back as the days when he was a media consultant to Richard Nixon. With Fox News, Ailes beat Ted Turner and CNN. He beat MSNBC and its corporate overlords, which at one time included

Elizabeth Warren Coordinated Response to

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) coordinated with the University of Massachusetts Amherst to respond to a student who had pleaded for the senator´s help after having her request to carry the Tibetan flag to a commencement ceremony rejected by the school, according to emails obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. Tibetan-American student Kalsang Nangpa was barred by UMass from carrying Tibet´s flag during the university´s annual "Parade of Nations." The administration told Nangpa that because the U.S. State Department does not recognize Tibet as a sovereign nation, her request to carry its flag would be denied. "This response I got

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has declined a request to host an event to mark Islam´s holy month of Ramadan, two U.S. officials said, apparently breaking with a bipartisan tradition in place with few exceptions for nearly 20 years. Since 1999, Republican and Democratic secretaries of state have nearly always hosted either an iftar dinner to break the day´s fast during Ramadan or a reception marking the Eid al-Fitr holiday at the end of the month, at the State Department. Tillerson turned down a request from the State Department´s Office of Religion and Global Affairs to host an Eid al-Fitr

Former House Speaker John Boehner said he thinks the vast majority of Donald Trump’s presidency has been a “complete disaster” during a recent energy conference in Houston, Texas. Boehner, who resigned from his Ohio House seat in October 2015, applauded Trump’s approach to foreign policy — praising his decision to take a strong stand against the Islamic State — but was highly critical of the progress he has made in other areas thus far. “Everything else he’s done [in office] has been a complete disaster,” he said Wednesday, according to energy publication Rigzone. “He’s still learning how to be president.” Boehner and Trump

Trump, A ‘Russian Stooge,’ Will
Maintain Sanctions On Russia
Daily Caller, by Will Racke    Original Article
Posted By: Lalo- 5/26/2017 10:19:13     Post Reply
In a move that undermines claims that he is controlled by the Kremlin, President Donald Trump will keep in place sanctions that the Obama administration imposed against Russia as punishment for Moscow’s alleged interference in the U.S. presidential election. The Trump administration is currently conducting a full review its Russia policy, but the president will continue the sanctions, top White House economic advisor Gary Cohn said Friday. The U.S. enacted the measures a month before Trump took office, and administration critics have fretted he would lift the sanctions in an effort to draw Washington closer to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The words “The Middle East” and “optimism” are not routinely paired. But who would know that, given the reactions of the region’s leaders to President Trump’s recent trip? “A turning point,” said Saudi Arabia’s King Salman. “The reassertion of American leadership in the Middle East,” said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “Capable of doing the impossible,” said Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi about Trump’s impact. [snip] Sissi’s use of the word “impossible” was understandable. The optics in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where Trump gave his principal address, might have seemed implausible even a few weeks ago.

Bozeman, Montana - Republican Greg Gianforte has won the special election for Montana´s open US House seat, CNN projects, defeating Democrat Rob Quist and capping off a whirlwind final 36 hours of the campaign that saw Gianforte being charged for allegedly assaulting a reporter. With 83% of precincts reporting, Gianforte had 171,149 votes -- or 50.3% of the vote, compared to Quist who has 149,138 votes, 43.9% of the vote, according to Edison Research. Gianforte was considered the favorite heading into Thursday´s election to fill the seat once held by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, but that was before he allegedly "body-slammed" a

FBI’s Kushner Focus Appears
To Prove Bannon Right

News that White House adviser and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner is under scrutiny in the FBI’s Russia probe comes almost two months after chief strategist Steve Bannon expressed concern that Kushner’s meetings with Russian officials could harm Trump’s presidency. Multiple news outlets reported Thursday evening that the FBI is looking into Kushner’s meetings with Russian officials after the election as part of the probe into Russian election meddling. Although Kushner has not been accused of any wrongdoing, the news appears to vindicate Bannon’s concerns that Kushner’s meetings would be a major distraction for the Trump White House.

Trump Fails To Back
Vital NATO Mutual Defense
Pact, Fulfilling Russia’s Fantasy

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) Article 5 mutual defense pact, stating that an attack on one is attack on all, lies at the heart of the alliance’s deterrence power against enemies hostile to the West, namely Russia. On Thursday, President Trump left the question of America’s long-standing commitment to Article 5 open to speculation and doubt. In a speech delivered at a so-called ceremony of “remembrance” and “resolve,” Trump refused to explicitly reassert the U.S. commitment to the mutual defense of NATO partners. As The Washington Post´s Karen Attiah points out, such an omission is unprecedented. "But alas, Trump

On Thursday, President Donald Trump addressed the NATO leaders from 28 countries at the alliance´s headquarters in Brussels. Before giving a hard-line speech in which he called out NATO leaders to pay their pledged share of two percent GDP toward defense, the president appeared to push aside a prime minister to get to the front of the group.

President Trump vowed on Thursday to investigate "alleged leaks" just hours after the United Kingdom said it had stopped sharing intelligence with the U.S. related to the Manchester terror attack, over fears that information might also be leaked. "The alleged leaks coming out of government agencies are deeply troubling," Trump said in a statement circulated by the White House. "These leaks have been going on for a long time and my administration will get to the bottom of this." "I am asking the Department of Justice and other relevant agencies to launch a complete review of this matter, and if

Do you want to hear a truly insane conspiracy theory? It’s a theory with almost as many moving parts as LBJ’s alleged mob hit on John F. Kennedy. Multiple agencies involving hundreds of separate government actors are working together, you see, to deceive the American people, advance false narratives, and bring down a president. It’s the world’s greatest con, and Sean Hannity, Newt Gingrich, and Geraldo Rivera are the only ones brave enough to ask the right questions. They’re the only ones bold enough to confront the fake-news media, to do the hard work of investigative journalism, and bring the

On Thursday in Brussels -- ahead of a NATO summit -- Trump and newly-elected French president Emmanuel Macron sat down for a talk and a handshake. And what a handshake it was! Watch!

Each president gripped the other´s hand with considerable intensity, their knuckles turning white and their jaws clenching and faces tightening."

Hillary Clinton suggested her campaign rival President Trump will get impeached, in sharp remarks in a commencement address Friday where she brought up ´obstruction of justice´ and warned of the steps to authoritarianism. Speaking to gowned graduates at the school where she addressed students in 1969, Clinton referenced the resignation of President Richard Nixon and a House committee´s impeachment investigation – but it was clear to graduating students what she was really talking about. ´We were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice,´ the

In her Wellesley College commencement address Friday, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee took repeated shots at President Trump, the man who beat her in November. "Look at the budget that was just proposed in Washington," Clinton said. "It is an attack of unimaginable cruelty on the most vulnerable among us, the youngest, the oldest, the poorest, and hardworking people who need a little help to gain or hang on to a decent middle-class life… And to top it off, it is shrouded in a trillion-dollar mathematical lie."

Hillary Clinton says that she "beat" Donald Trump—and Bernie Sanders—in a lengthy feature article by New York Magazine. "I beat both of them," she said, evidently referencing her popular vote win over Trump. While Clinton did defeat Sanders, who is not a Democrat, in the Democratic primary, she did not defeat Trump, who was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States in January. In the story, Clinton discussed her post-election status as a member of the "Resistance" to Trump, but she also reflected on the 2016 campaign, which included a harder-than-expected fight against Sanders for the nomination.

On Thursday, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) questioned President Donald Trump’s failure to visit countries in alphabetical order. Asked at a press conference to comment on Trump’s trip abroad, Pelosi expressed concern that Trump didn’t start with Canada (with the letter “C”) like previous presidents: “I thought it was unusual for the President of the United States to go to Saudi Arabia first. Saudi Arabia?” Pelosi said. “It wasn’t even alphabetical. I mean, Saudi Arabia.” “Now, notice the previous five presidents….four of them went to Canada first.

New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic-spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials. The irony is mind-boggling: Targeting political opposition is long a technique of police states like Russia, which Team Obama has loudly condemned for allegedly using its own intelligence agencies to hack into our election. The revelations, as well as testimony this week from former Obama intel officials, show the extent to which the Obama administration politicized and weaponized intelligence against Americans. Thanks to Circa News, we now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated

WASHINGTON — Shortly after President Trump took office, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, met privately with his colleagues to discuss the Republican agenda. Repealing the Affordable Care Act was at the top, he said. But replacing it would be really hard. Mr. McConnell was right. The many meetings Republicans held to discuss a Senate health care bill have exposed deep fissures within the party that are almost as large as the differences between Republicans and Democrats. Elements of a bill that passed the House this month have divided Republicans. Mr. McConnell faces an increasingly onerous math problem.

Republican Greg Gianforte won Thursday’s special election for the U.S. House in Montana, defeating Democratic challenger Rob Quist despite being charged with misdemeanor assault the day before. Gianforte will now take over former Navy SEAL Ryan Zinke’s House seat. Zinke vacated the seat when he accepted the post of Secretary of the Interior in President Donald Trump’s Cabinet. The election results — with Gianforte winning over 50% of the vote and leading by a seven-point margin — were a major blow to Democrats’ anti-Trump efforts, and to the media’s expectations, after Gianforte had allegedly “body-slammed” a reporter before his final

THE BIG IDEA: Greg Gianforte admitted to attacking a reporter and apologized during his victory speech last night, as he kept Montana’s sole House seat in Republican hands. Now he and his party’s leaders are trying to move on. On the eve of the special election, the wealthy technology entrepreneur flipped out when the Guardian’s Ben Jacobs asked him about the CBO’s score of the health care bill. He now faces misdemeanor assault charges for reportedly throwing Jacobs to the ground and breaking his glasses. “I made a mistake,” the congressman-elect said at his party in Bozeman. “Not in our minds!” yelled
