Trump Strikes Back!
President eviscerates Bannon, says
former adviser has ‘lost his mind’

Washington Times, by S.A. Miller

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/3/2018 3:48:19 PM

President Trump lashed out Wednesday against Steve Bannon, saying that his former top campaign and White House adviser had “lost his mind.” “Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.” Mr. Bannon harshly criticized the early days of the Trump White House in an upcoming book. Excerpts were released Wednesday. The president said Mr. Bannon does not represent the Trump base but “is only in it for himself” and called him a secret ally of the news media that opposes the administration. Mr. Bannon gave author Michael Wolff a biting expose that

Comments:
For the "Doubting Thomas´s" who troll our website to smack at "breaking news", sometimes it takes awhile till Fox or the Washington Times writes their version. I don´t wait if it´s not in the que. This also has President Trump´s statement. Note, Bloomberg News changed it´s article and writers two times since it´s original posting on the web.

We did not vote for Bannon. He never affected any support I had for PT one way or the other.

I have been a faithful listener of Breitbart news in the morning and find it distressing that Bannon is stabbing the President and his family.

I don´t like this one bit. It is so disgusting that members of Trump´s team and campaign are disloyal and feel free to trash him and portray him as a useful idiot.

I would say that much of this is fake news, but having Trump respond against Bannon confirms the validity of it. It is exhausting to not trust people on our own team and expect that at any time, they will try to take him down.

Tonight, I am very discouraged and disheartened. With all the supporting evidence to clear Trump of the Russia accusations and place blame where it is due, this distraction is very harmful. I want a smooth, functioning government and leadership! Not, a quibbling, divisive, critical one.

I doubt veracity of this report. I´ll hold fire until proven true. Bannon´s comments make no sense and don´t ring true.

It appears to have created a riff between DjT and Bannon.

If the author is so willing to freely lie about Melania then I don´t see why I should take any of this book seriously.

It seems to me like the critics of President Trump would like to see a breakdown in support of President Trump and they see the statement of President Trump as possibly leading to unhappiness of his base.

They shouldn´t get so upset.

If President Trump was really going to be harsh, he could have said that "Bannon has lost his marble mind".

House Democrats vote ´present´
on resolution supporting ICE
Washington Examiner [DC], by Susan Ferrechio    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/18/2018 5:15:29     Post Reply
Most House Democrats voted “present” Tuesday on a resolution aimed at forcing them to clarify whether they support U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, after some Democrats have criticized the agency´s role in enforcing U.S. immigration laws. The House passed a nonbinding resolution saying lawmakers support the "officers and personnel who carry out the important mission of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement." A two-thirds majority was needed to pass it, and because Democrats voted "present" instead of "no," it passed easily in a 244-35 vote. The final vote saw just 18 Democrats vote for the

Russian Hack Target: the GOP

Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election wasn’t as one-sided as Special Counsel Robert Mueller charges in his latest indictment. The Russian military spy agency that Mueller says hacked the Democratic National Committee also penetrated the computer systems of the Republican National Committee using fake emails in a phishing scheme, U.S. officials say. This evidence challenges the narrative, now reinforced by Mueller’s indictments, that Russia’s scheme was solely aimed at damaging Hillary Clinton. “RNC emails were stolen through the same spearphishing scams used against Democrats,” a senior U.S. intelligence official familiar with the investigation told RealClearInvestigations.

Washington - A Russian woman who tried to broker a pair of secret meetings between candidate Donald J. Trump and the Russian president, Vladimir V. Putin, during the 2016 presidential campaign, was charged Monday and accused of working with Americans to carry out a secret Russian effort to influence American politics. Working at the behest of a Russian government official and with help from an unidentified American political operative, the woman, Mariia Butina, worked to infiltrate American organizations as a way to secretly advance Russian interests, prosecutors said. As part of that effort, she tried to establish

Washington - Republican and Democratic U.S. senators said on Thursday they want the government to reinstate penalties on ZTE Corp, despite a Trump administration agreement paving the way for an end of a ban on the Chinese telecommunications company. (Snip) Many U.S. lawmakers, including some of Trump’s fellow Republicans as well as Democrats, view ZTE as a national security threat, worrying that the use of its technology in the United States could make it easier for China to steal secrets.

Tokyo - About 20 percent of North Korean children are stunted because of malnutrition, and half the children in rural areas are drinking unsafe water, a senior U.N. official visiting the country said. Much progress has been made compared to 20 years ago but "significant humanitarian challenges" remain, Mark Lowcock, the undersecretary general for humanitarian affairs, said Wednesday at a news conference in Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea. The U.N. issued a transcript of his remarks. The United Nations is trying to raise $111 million to meet health, water and sanitation and food security needs for about 6 million people

The much-maligned habit of ghosting has apparently made its way into the workplace. According to a recent LinkedIn article, "People are ´ghosting´ at work and it´s driving companies crazy." Ghosting is when a person abruptly goes silent or disappears without explanation. The article goes on to explain that candidates who have agreed to job interviews fail to show up without any notice or further communication and, in some cases, accept jobs only to not appear for their first day of work. "This job market is so hot right now. Unemployment is at a 18-year low. You´ve got more job openings than candidates,

Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer said Tuesday that it is deferring recent drug price increases until the end of the year after an "extensive discussion" between the company´s CEO, President Trump, and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar. The announcement came after Trump tweeted Tuesday that he had met with Pfizer CEO Ian Read to discuss his "drug pricing blueprint" — his plan to fulfill a campaign promise to lower drug prices across the board — and that the company would reverse the recent price hikes as a result. Pfizer confirmed the meeting in a statement, adding that it plans to defer the

Questions are being raised about Facebook´s
decision to give a Russian internet company

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/10/2018 9:00:45     Post Reply
Facebook is facing fresh scrutiny over its data-sharing practices following the publication of reports highlighting how a Russian internet giant with ties to the Russian government gained access to user data. On Tuesday, CNN and Wired published reports exploring how Mail.Ru built apps that were able to access Facebook user data after the social network locked down its platform in 2015. Facebook recently disclosed in written testimony to US Congress that Mail.Ru had built apps that integrated with its platform — and that it was one of a select group of app makers that was given an extension beyond the formal 2015 cut-off date.

Dallas - The government recently told four immigrant women that they must pay for DNA tests to prove they are related to the children they were separated from in order to be reunited, according to the shelter that housed the women. (Snip) The Trump administration isn’t the first to use DNA tests to verify relationships between immigrants or refugees. Under the Obama administration, the Department of Homeland Security and State Department initiated a DNA testing pilot program for refugees from certain African countries in the “Priority Three” program that reunited refugees already inside the U.S. with relatives still

MK Jamal Zahalka (Joint List) vehemently opposes the Nationality Law being promoted by MK Avi Dichter (Likud), who in the past served as head of the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet). The Nationality Law would establish the status of the State of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people and the right of the Jewish people to self-determination in its homeland as a unique right for the Jewish people. It would also anchor the symbols of the state, Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the Jewish calendar as the country´s official calendar, and the Hebrew language as the official language.

New York - The Trump administration is readying another round of tariffs on Chinese goods worth $200 billion. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on Tuesday released a list of additional goods that could face 10% tariffs after a public comment period. It includes seafood, fruit and vegetables, yarn, wool, rain jackets and baseball gloves. The move comes after the United States imposed tariffs on Chinese goods worth $34 billion last Friday. Beijing immediately responded with its own tariffs on US goods worth $34 billion. Tuesday´s action makes good on a threat President Donald Trump made last month,

After meeting with retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy to discuss his retirement from the highest court in the US, Trump came out of it focused on replacing him with Judge Brett Kavanaugh, according to Politico. Even though he was considering other judges such as Thomas Hardiman, Amy Coney Barrett, and Raymond Kethledge for the nomination, Trump was zeroed in on Kavanaugh, who was Kennedy´s former law clerk. Trump has credited Kennedy for giving him the opportunity to transform the Supreme Court and give it more of a conservative bend, according to Politico. That will now happen if the 53-year-old

Former CIA Director John Brennan continued Tuesday to criticize President Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit, saying Mr. Trump could have potentially risked intelligence capabilities during his private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the intel community might begin to withhold intelligence from Mr. Trump. In light of Mr. Trump’s comments about the intelligence community, Mr. Brennan said “there very well might be” a shift in the covert community to “withhold vital intelligence” in order to protect that information. “Dan Coats and Gina Haspel need to be on top of their game now and speak truth to power,” he

Chicago may soon become the largest municipality in the U.S. to test a universal basic income program. Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

There is an American besides President Donald Trump who was privy to the two-hour private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin – a government translator who sat in on the entire meeting. Marina Gross, a State Department translator, was pictured along with Trump, Putin, and Putin´s translator at their Helsinki summit. Interest in her role has only grown, after furious critics accused Trump of ´treason´ for failing to push Putin publicly in any way at their Helsinki summit. It was after that meeting that Trump emerged only to engage in a disastrous press conference where he took Putin´s denial of election interference over

President Trump has now been in office a year and a quarter. President Trump’s results when compared to those of President Obama at the same time are stunning. In every economic measurement, President Trump far out-performs President Obama. The mainstream media and Democrat Party continue to smear President Trump with the fake Russia collusion narrative. In doing so they also continue to ignore President Trump’s many accomplishments. When compared to Obama [and most presidents], President Trump’s efforts to shore up the economy are historic.

Was Russia´s effort to interfere in the 2016 election the most important issue on the table at President Trump´s Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin? No. But it´s not an unimportant issue, either, and Trump knew the American press is obsessed with it. So he knew it would play a big role in the Trump-Putin post-summit news conference. There are all sorts of aspects to the Trump-Russia affair, but in light of special counsel Robert Mueller´s decision to indict 12 Russian intelligence agents on the Friday before the Monday summit, the president also knew reporters would want to hear him specifically affirm

The Democratic former U.S. president did not name his Republican successor, Donald Trump, but the speech was among the most pointed comments he has made about politics since leaving office in January 2017.
