Trump will not declassify Democrats´
current memo, White House says

CBS News, by Kathryn Watson

Original Article

Posted By:Maryland_Patriot, 2/9/2018 8:09:22 PM

President Trump will not declassify the memo from Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee as it currently is written, the White House announced in a letter Friday night. The Democrats´ memo is a rebuttal to the GOP memo about surveillance of a former Trump campaign official. "Although the president is inclined to declassify the Feb. 5th memorandum, because the memorandum contains numerous properly classified and especially sensitive passages, he is unable to do so at this time," the letter from White House counsel Don McGahn to Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, reads.

That is even gutsier than my suggestion, which was to defer it to the FBI and let them redact it- That would have been sneaky and rather ironic. But, shifty and lacking guts as the president. But, this is prue Presidential hubris- In your face, Democrats! We have a real President, not some mamby-pamby, gum smacking frat boy from Kenya bowing to every potentate he comes across. This President is ready with a pen and a fist.

You knew the deceitful Dems would purposely load up their memo with elements the President couldn´t approve. They want to give their enemedia allies another news cycle to pound Trump. Disgusting.

And proud of President Trump for having the guts to shove it back to them to fix it.

I suggested to my wife yesterday that rather than step into their trap and redact the memo and get the media and Dems screaming "foul", he should just point out the classified info and send it back to the Dems for a rewrite.

Brilliant move. Sidestep the trap.

Check,
Mate.

Report finds cases of STDs reach
all-time high in California
Associated Press, by Christopher Weber    Original Article
Posted By: Maryland_Patriot- 5/15/2018 12:49:03     Post Reply
Los Angeles - The number of cases of sexually transmitted diseases in California reached a record high last year and officials are particularly concerned by a spike in stillbirths due to congenital syphilis, state health authorities said Monday. More than 300,000 cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were reported in 2017, a 45 percent increase from five years ago, according to data released by the California Department of Public Health. Chlamydia and gonorrhea are most common among people under 30, the report said. Rates of chlamydia are highest among young women, while men account for the majority of syphilis and gonorrhea cases.

AP to offer election voter survey to
replace exit polls
Associated Press, by David Bauder    Original Article
Posted By: Maryland_Patriot- 5/15/2018 12:43:51     Post Reply
New York — The Associated Press said Tuesday that it will begin conducting an elaborate election voter survey designed to replace the traditional in-person exit poll, which has been criticized in recent years for inaccuracy and failing to keep up with changes in how Americans vote. AP is convinced that science is on its side. Still, it’s a bold and potentially risky move for the news cooperative, which counts political coverage as a strong suit and which has, until recently, pooled resources with ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and Fox News to conduct exit polling in major elections.

No man in America is more entitled to the nation’s admiration and gratitude for sacrifice than John McCain. He’s a hero in anybody’s book, with no asterisks. An exclamation point, but no asterisk. The criticism of a young White House aide was harsh for remarking, in a private working session where everything was off the record, that since the senator was “dying, anyway,” he should not be in the calculus for reckoning how the vote might go in the confirmation of Gina Haspel. The aide, one Kelly Sadler, has been roasted and toasted since by critics large and small, Republican and Democrat,

The philanthropic foundation funded by the billionaire George Soros is to close its offices in Hungary, saying it can´t protect its own staff from the country´s government. Open Society Foundations will move its international operations in Budapest to Berlin in Germany, according to a press release Tuesday. "The government of Hungary has denigrated and misrepresented our work and repressed civil society for the sake of political gain, using tactics unprecedented in the history of the European Union," said Patrick Gaspard, president of the Open Society Foundations.

A little sanctimony in the Senate

Asking a U.S. senator for his views on morality is the ultimate fool’s errand. As the innkeeper of “Fawlty Towers,” the British sitcom, was fond of saying in moments of neighborly frustration, “you might as well ask the cat.” Yet there the Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee were, seeking by any means necessary to derail the nomination of Gina Haspel for director of the CIA, trying to look as wise as a tree full of owls parsing the fine points of theology, morality and ethics as if they were earnest sophomores at the seminary. At issue was whether Mzz Haspel considers

Fox Business guest endorses torture

Torture is good, a Fox Business guest said Thursday, because it worked on John McCain. Appearing on "Making Monday," retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney simultaneously defended Gina Haspel´s 2002 torture of an Al Qaeda militant in a black-site prison and took a nasty dig at McCain, who was a prisoner of war during the Vietnam War. "That´s why they call him ´Songbird John,´" McInerney told host Charles Payne. "The fact is those methods can work, and they are effective, as former Vice President Cheney said. And if we have to use them to save a million American lives,

Trump on Eric Schneiderman in 2013 tweet:

Did President Trump know something? Almost five years ago, Mr. Trump tweeted that Eric Schneiderman, then the new New York attorney general, was “worse than” two well-known Democratic sex criminals. On Monday night, Mr. Schneiderman was the object of the latest #MeToo bombshell. The New Yorker reported in a lengthy feature about four women — two named, two unnamed — accusing Mr. Schneiderman of slapping and choking them in intimate situations without consent and with threatening them with surveillance and death if they talked. Within hours of the article’s publication, Mr. Schneiderman resigned.

Rees-Mogg Proves He’s Ready to Lead

If there’s one politician Donald Trump absolutely has to meet on his trip to the UK this summer, it’s Conservative backbench MP Jacob Rees-Mogg. Though the two men are oceans apart in terms of style and personality – the Jacob being the quintessential English gentleman; the Donald not – what they both possess in spades is the most extraordinary, winning frankness. They would, I’m sure get on like a house on fire. Indeed, with a fair wind, they would make the greatest U.S. president/UK prime minister double act since the era of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. That’s because they tell it

Hatch to McCain: Invite

Sen. John McCain should reconsider his wish that President Donald Trump not attend McCain´s funeral, said Sen. Orrin Hatch, the most senior GOP senator. McCain prefers instead that Vice President Mike Pence attend his funeral rather than Trump, who has mocked McCain for being tortured and attacked him for voting against Obamacare repeal. But Hatch said he thought keeping the president from his funeral was too much: "I think it´s ridiculous." "Well, he´s the president of the United States and he´s a very good man. But it´s up to [McCain]. I think John should have his own wishes fulfilled with regard to

Federal judge rightly rebukes

An experienced federal judge has confirmed what I have been arguing for months — namely, that the modus operandi of special counsel Robert Mueller is to charge associates of President Trump with any crime he can find in order to squeeze them into turning against Trump. This is what Judge T.S. Ellis III said at a hearing Friday: “You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort’s bank fraud. … What you really care about is what information Mr. Manafort could give you that would reflect on Mr. Trump or lead to his prosecution or impeachment.” But, as the judge correctly pointed out, it

Public intellectual Jordan Peterson believes the cultural desire to view everything in terms of the political spectrum is at its root responsible for his wildly inaccurate portrayal by many in the establishment media, he tells The Daily Caller in an exclusive interview.

So, it’s not the postmodern Neo-Marxist political level of analysis, because I’m not interested, fundamentally, in people as groups: political, ethnic, racial—I don’t care.

Vatican City — Pope Francis says he has thought about when it might be time to “take leave” of his flock. Francis made the comment during his morning homily Tuesday; the Vatican didn’t release the full text. Francis was reflecting on St. Paul discerning when to leave his flock in the care of others, a decision Francis said all bishops must make. He said: “When I read this, I think about myself, because I’m a bishop and I’ll have to take my leave.” Francis has said retired Pope Benedict XVI “opened a door” to future popes by resigning.

Washington - Senate candidate Mitt Romney of Utah said Sunday a prominent Baptist minister shouldn’t be giving the prayer that opens the US Embassy in Jerusalem because he’s a “religious bigot.” In a tweet, the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee criticized Dallas minister Robert Jeffress for his remarks about Jews, Mormons and Islam. The Jerusalem Open House on Monday also lambasted Jeffress’s participation, saying he had in the past called gay rights promoters “pedophilia activists” and said homosexuality was a “perversion.” Jeffress, a Southern Baptist who vigorously

Martin Luther King Jr. once said there is nothing in the world more dangerous than sincere ignorance. Well, sincere ignorance had a banner day last week when President Trump unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal. A CNN/ORC poll taken shortly before Trump’s decision found that a majority of Americans — 63 percent — wanted the U.S. to stay in the deal. But get this: 62 percent of Americans believed Iran had violated its terms. To me, the second result is the more alarming. That poll is proof of sincere ignorance of the deal on the part of nearly two-thirds of Americans. They are under the spell of Trump’s

First United Airlines barred an emotional support peacock from boarding. Now American Airlines is telling passengers some of their service and emotional support animals - including goats, hedgehogs and tusked creatures - can´t fly. The carrier is joining rival airlines in tightening rules for passengers flying with emotional support animals, expanding the list of animals that can´t fly in addition to requiring customers vouch for their animal´s ability to behave. Federal laws require airlines to permit passengers with disabilities to travel with service and emotional support animals in the cabin, though airlines can require a statement from a licensed mental

Conrad Black’s erudite biography of Donald J. Trump is different from the usual in mediis rebus accounts of first-year presidents. He avoids the Bob Woodward fly-on-the-wall unattributed anecdote, and “they say” gossip mongering. Nor is the book a rush-to-publish product from former insiders of the Trump campaign or administration. Instead, Black, a prolific and insightful historian, adopts the annalistic method in carefully tracing Trump’s earliest years in business through his various commercial misadventures, financial recoveries, and sometimes wild antics. Black’s aim is to illustrate how much of what Trump has done since announcing his presidential candidacy in summer 2015 is

SEATTLE – The Seattle City Council on Monday approved a controversial but compromise head tax on large businesses to pay for programs for the homeless. The tax would raise about $48 million a year – less than the original proposal of $75 million but more than the $40 million that Mayor Jenny Durkan had proposed. Durkan says she will sign the bill. Amazon, downtown´s economic giant, immediately blasted the proposal and what it said was a hostile approach to larger businesses that "forces us to question our growth here."

MELBOURNE, Australia -- When you hear "world tour" you usually think of superstars performing concerts in various cities for adoring fans. Not so with the presidentially deprived, entitlement-driven Hillary Clinton. Last week, Hillary Clinton came to Melbourne, Australia´s second largest city, and to Sydney, its largest, with a huge chip on her shoulder. The chip has been there since the 2016 election and seems to be growing larger with every appearance. As with almost everything else the Clintons do, it cost to hear her bitterness. Those who went to hear Clinton speak, more than 5,000 people, paid between $200 and $500 Australian
