Spicer returns to the podium
The Hill, by Jordan Fabian

Original Article

Posted By:Lalo, 7/17/2017 10:07:36 AM

White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Monday will hold his first press briefing in nearly three weeks. Spicer will address reporters at an off-camera briefing in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room at 2 p.m. It will be Spicer’s first briefing at the White House since June 28. President Trump was in Europe for the Group of 20 summit from July 5-8 and traveled to France Thursday and Friday of last week, meaning there were no briefings at the White House. The press secretary has largely been missing from public view in recent weeks Spicer has taken on many of the behind-the-scenes duties

Has Jim Acosta been relegated to the back row? He should be.

I can hardly wait. He does an awesome impression of Melissa McCarthy. Also I think his tweets under the pen name of "Sean Spicier" are the funniest ever on Twitter.

Why not just give one press briefing a week, with the other 4 days have a sign with "Dealing with Fake News" posted outside the Briefing Room.

Hey Sean, great idea, go back to on camera TV coverage but the reporters all have to wear Clown Masks!

Schumer: Dems, not Russia, are

The Hill, by Aida Chavez    Original Article
Posted By: Lalo- 7/22/2017 10:32:10     Post Reply
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) says that Democrats, not Russia, are to blame for Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Trump. “When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things - [James] Comey, Russia - you blame yourself,” Schumer said in an interview Saturday with The Washington Post. “So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.” Last year, much of the Democrats’ strategy hinged on criticism of Trump in hopes that the many controversies swirling around the GOP presidential

CNN´s season premiere of “Declassified: Untold Stories of American Spies” will focus on undercover Russian sleeper agents living in the U.S., according to the network. “The Spies Next Door: Operation Ghost Stories,” reveals the story of undercover Russian sleeper agents living in the U.S. and one of the largest counterintelligence investigations in the history of the FBI," reads a news release from the network. The series airs Saturday nights at 9 p.m. EST and is hosted by former Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.). "I think people love a good spy story. The first episode is a really good spy story," Rogers

On Saturday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz stated that special counsels are generally like Captain Ahab hunting the white whale and it isn’t likely that special counsel Robert Mueller will want to come away with nothing. He also argued that while it is legitimate to look into President Trump’s finances to see if he has any major debts to Russian oligarchs, a general search into his finances to look for a crime is inappropriate. Dershowitz said that the Trump administration’s criticism of members of the special counsel’s team donating to Democrats

A desperate dad rescued his jihadist son from the bloody grasp of ISIS — and dismantled a major terrorist network in the process. In his book “Rescued from Isis,” Dimitri Bontinck describes watching helplessly as his boy JeJoen — known as Jay — was recruited by jihadis in their native Belgium. Dimitri, a former soldier in the Belgian Army, could do nothing as his radicalized son traveled to Syria and took up arms with the Islamic State. “Radical Islam had come right to the door of my home, stolen my son, and we had no laws, no formulas to stop it,” Dimitri writes.

The untouchable Hope Hicks

Hope Hicks was celebrating a family wedding at a Bermuda golf club the weekend after Donald Trump was elected president when she overheard members of another party expressing dismay about his victory. The young press secretary was off duty, but she couldn’t help inserting herself into the conversation at the next table. “I promise, he’s a good person!” Hicks chimed in, begging them not to worry, according to multiple people who witnessed the exchange. Hicks’ instinctual defense of the president is emblematic of how she views her role in the White House: as someone who deeply understands Trump, but also understands why,

Sean Spicer came to the White House on Thursday completely unaware President Donald Trump was planning to meet with Anthony Scaramucci, a longtime Wall Street friend, and offer him the job of communications director. Other top aides, including Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon, also had no clue. But in Trump´s White House, where rumors of staff shake-ups loom for months, it all happened quickly. By Friday morning, over the strenuous objections of senior aides, Trump had a new communications director. And Spicer had made a spontaneous decision to resign, offended by the whole turn of events. He had been blindsided

The tumultuous Trump White House witnessed its most notable shake-up yet on Friday — and speculation is rife that more departures could be coming. White House press secretary Sean Spicer resigned abruptly after Trump made Anthony Scaramucci, a Wall Street financier and frequent TV surrogate for the president, communications director. The move was not just a humiliating rebuke to Spicer. It was also a broader defeat for the pro-GOP establishment faction in the White House, of which Chief of Staff Reince Priebus is the most prominent representative. One former Trump campaign adviser said that while the Scaramucci appointment was a

As news broke of President Trump´s pick of Anthony Scaramucci for White House Communications Director, reporters and interested Americans rushed to learn more about the man who will now run the West Wing´s communications operations. At first glance, Scaramucci appears to be an odd pick to former press secretaries and communications directors such as myself. But it makes a lot of sense. Those who fail to see it don´t understand the new media world in which we are all operating, where TV pundits now carry more weight than someone with a long resume who would have once been

While there are doubtless celebrations in Moscow, the news that Sen. John McCain has irreversible brain cancer hit me harder than any such news since I sat in a seventh-grade classroom and our science teacher ran down the hall shouting, “The president’s been shot.” That president, JFK, was a war hero, too, but not one of McCain’s stature. Shot down over North Vietnam, crippled by wounds and tortured, McCain refused early release and remained in his Hanoi prison, suffering for years beside his comrades. Returning home at last, on crutches, he dedicated himself to serving the people of Arizona and the

Fast-forward to this week and Trump, now president, has nominated Huntsman to serve as U.S. ambassador to Russia.

The Justice Department hit back Friday night at a report citing anonymous sources who said Attorney General Jeff Sessions discussed sensitive matters with a Russian official during last year´s presidential race ins spite of his subsequent testimony that he did not. The Washington Post, citing unnamed current and former officials, reported that Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak claimed he discussed the 2016 campaign with Sessions during the race, possibly contradicting the attorney general’s public comments about his interactions with Russian officials, according to a

Jeb Bush slammed Republicans Saturday for giving President Trump a free pass on Russia — while blasting President Obama for the same thing. “If your opponent does things that … your head explodes on … then when your guy does the same thing, have the same passion to be critical,” the former Florida governor fumed at Ozy Fest, a Central Park festival hosted by the digital news magazine Ozy. Jeb’s jab appeared to be a thinly veiled reference to GOP leadership going easy on Trump for not criticizing Russia for its alleged meddling in U.S. elections. Trump has deflected criticism

He continued: The key here is to be fair to the 11 million [illegal immigrants], starting with the [2 million younger illegals] ‘Dreamers,’ but convince people we’re going to do what our great friend [President] Ronald Reagan

Sarah Huckabee Sanders was promoted to White House press secretary Friday, and it didn’t take long for liberals to attack her appearance and politics. While Sanders is just the third woman to serve as press secretary — following Dee Dee Myers and Dana Perino — some questioned the idea that Sanders’ ascension is a win for feminism. Mediaite published an article shortly after the promotion announcement that accused Sanders of “hurting women.”

Authorities in Florida say that a group of teenagers recorded the drowning of a disabled man last week — and did nothing to help as they made fun of his struggles. Jamel Dunn, 32, of Cocoa, drowned in a retention pond July 9. His body was recovered July 14, two days after his fiancee reported him missing. Late last week, a friend of Dunn´s family came across the video on social media and forwarded it to authorities in Brevard County. In the video, which was published by the Florida Today newspaper Thursday, the teens can be heard laughing at Dunn

The outcome of O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing, broadcast live Thursday, was clear from the very beginning, when chairperson Connie Bisbee addressed him not as Inmate #1027820 but as a star. “I’m a little nervous, so bear with me,” she said. It was an odd ceding of power: After all, there’s no law requiring televised parole hearings. But Simpson doesn’t just occupy a singular nexus between celebrity and the criminal justice system; there’s never been a figure like him in American life. Bisbee wasn’t alone in being starstruck. Her colleague, parole board member Adam Engel, wore an NFL tie. When Bisbee mistakenly declared

On June 28th, President Trump convened a roundtable at the White House that included victims of crimes committed by undocumented immigrants. The event was part of the Administration’s push to pass several new immigration bills designed to, in Trump’s words, “close the dangerous loopholes exploited by criminals, gang members, drug dealers, killers, terrorists.” A regular theme of the Trump Administration’s messaging on immigration has been to present undocumented “bad hombres” as an immediate threat to the safety and cohesion of the American family unit. But some of Trump’s immigration policies, in themselves, have endangered families across America. The stories below,

Deep State leaked top secret information on Friday to The Washington Post in their continued attempt to destroy the Trump administration. The latest leaks prove the Obama administration was spying on the Trump campaign. President Trump tweeted on Barack Obama’s illegal spying on his political opponents in 2016. POTUS Trump tweeted this in March. (Tweet) Since that time we now know that the FBI was investigating the Trump Tower servers during the election. We also know Susan Rice lied at first but then admitted when she got caught that she was unmasking her political opponents phone calls. Rice blamed racism after

For the last 15 years, I have been making good educational use of Lennon´s famous song "Imagine." In one of my classes, analyzing the song helps Japanese students think critically about song lyrics. The song is very well known and popular in Japan, in part because Lennon´s wife was Japanese. Yoko Ono´s leftist beliefs also left their mark on the content of the song, a fact that will probably soon receive official recognition by the National Music Publishers Association. The song´s doubtful assumptions and internal contradictions make it an instructive instance of the sloppy, shallow thinking we often find in the
