The Promise of Pompeo
New York Sun, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Toledo, 3/13/2018 6:18:20 PM

President Trump’s decision to promote Mike Pompeo to secretary of state is a huge step in the right direction. It means that, if Mr. Pompeo is confirmed, the administration will have in the top foreign policy job an officer who was first in his class at West Point, served as an officer of armor in Europe, soared at law school, mastered politics in Congress, has run the Central Intelligence Agency — and who agrees with the president. What a contrast with Secretary Tillerson. The ex-chairman of ExxonMobil had some wonderful instincts (such as his plan to cut the State Department

This is great news. Now, if only Trump will singe Sessions and Wray with some get moving tweets, all will be good.

NY Daily News stealth-edits
column that told Hispanic
Kimberly Guilfoyle to go ‘pick grapes’
Daily Caller News Foundation, by Joe Simonson    Original Article
Posted By: toledo- 6/14/2018 12:22:27     Post Reply
The New York Daily News has stealth-edited a column originally telling Hispanic conservative commentator Kimberly Guilfoyle that “she’d be better off picking grapes” than dating Donald Trump Jr. That line has now been changed to “she’d probably have better odds picking lotto numbers,” without any note from an editor. An Internet Archive page shows the change as well. Linda Stasi, the author behind the piece titled “Fox should fire reporter Kimberly Guilfoyle, who can’t possibly stay neutral while dating a Trump kid,” also mistakenly refers to Guilfoyle as a reporter rather than an opinion journalist.

Some of the biggest names in Hollywood gathered at the 72nd Tony Awards on Sunday night to join actor Robert De Niro in trashing President Donald Trump. Among the A-List celebrities who goaded De Niro on with an enthusiastic standing ovation for his “F**k Trump” tirade were John Leguizamo, Harry Hadden Paton, and Rebecca Night. Actor Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame took to Twitter, praising Dirty Grandpa for giving “people what they want” and suggesting he earned his standing ovation by being a “crowd pleaser.” Kathy Griffin soon joined in, declaring herself a member of the “F**k Trump Club.”

The lawsuit, which seeks records regarding the authorization for Abedin to engage in outside employment while employed by the Department of State,

After vote fails to condemn Hamas,

A United States amendment to a Palestinian-backed draft resolution at the U.N. General Assembly that would have condemned the terrorist group Hamas was defeated even before getting a vote Wednesday afternoon because of a procedural maneuver by Algeria, one of the sponsors of the Palestinian draft resolution. U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley, before the voting, said that the attempt to obstruct the vote was “shameful.” The U.S. amendment would have been added onto a Palestinian-backed draft resolution that, in part, called for consideration of an international protection force for Palestinian civilians without any condemnation

President Trump declared Wednesday that there is “no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea” as he returned to Washington, offering a rosy assessment of a summit with the leader of a nation that still possesses nuclear weapons. “Just landed - a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea,” the president said on Twitter. In a separate tweet, he said that North Korea is no longer the United States’ most dangerous problem, as President Barack Obama had characterized it upon leaving office.

SAN ANTONIO — Dozens of people, including some children, were discovered in a tractor-trailer in San Antonio.

Hood said, "This truck was air-conditioned, thank God. This truck had water. So they were hydrated."

On North Korea, a president who
tried something different

Reaction to President Trump´s summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has broken down along the usual Trump-anti-Trump divisions. The truth is, it will take a while before it´s clear whether the summit achieved anything or not. But give the president credit for trying a new approach to an intractable problem. Trump had no electoral mandate on North Korea. Despite the oversized role it has played in his presidency, the issue of Kim did not come up much in the 2016 campaign. It was rarely discussed in the GOP primary debates and wasn´t a factor in the Trump-Clinton general election debates.

Donald Trump said Tuesday that part of his hard sell to Kim Jong-un about giving up his nuclear weapons was a video that showed the benefits of shaking off the chains of near-global economic sanctions – including the possibility of developing his country´s beaches. ´They have great beaches! You see that whenever they´re exploding the cannons into the ocean, right?´ Trump said after he played the dramatic, Hollywood-produced four minute video for the press corps. ´So I said, "Boy, look at that beach. Wouldn´t that make a great condo behind" – and I explained it,´ the real estate billionaire recalled.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway´s husband on Monday released an article defending the constitutionality of special counsel Robert Mueller´s probe into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia´s election meddling. The piece, titled "The Terrible Arguments Against the Constitutionality of the Mueller Investigation," takes aim at President Trump´s recent Twitter attacks on the probe, in which the president argues the investigation is unconstitutional. (Tweet) Conway points out the initial spelling errors in the tweet and said he most likely got his argument from conservative legal scholar Steven Calabresi.

SINGAPORE - Singapore is footing the hotel bill for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his contingent, Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan said on Monday (June 11). "It´s hospitality that we would have offered them, and as Chairman Kim said yesterday, he would have liked to have come to Singapore anyway, with or without the summit," Dr Balakrishnan said in an interview with the BBC. Mr Kim, who is Chairman of North Korea´s State Affairs Commission, arrived in Singapore on Sunday for a historic summit on Tuesday with United States President Donald Trump to discuss possible denuclearisation efforts.

During his three decades as a emergency-room doctor, Bob Uslander had never written a prescription for a lethal dose of medication. But then he shifted to geriatric and palliative care, and in 2016, a patient suffering from the neurodegenerative disease ALS wanted to use California’s new physician-assisted death law. Uslander was apprehensive. Until then, he’d always viewed death as a failure. “I didn’t really know what it would be like to be with somebody who had made the choice and was taking this medication,” he recalled recently. “I didn’t know if they would just gently fall asleep or if they would be

Netflix has reportedly banned workers from looking at each other for more than five seconds as part of its new anti-harassment rules. The new policy also bans the company’s film crews from asking their colleagues for their phone numbers, according to an article in the Sun. “Senior staff went to a harassment meeting to learn what is and isn’t appropriate,” an on-set runner told the Sun. “Looking at anyone longer than five seconds is considered creepy.” “You mustn’t ask for someone’s number unless they have given permission for it to be distributed,” the source continued. “And if you see any unwanted behaviour, report it immediately.”

A new proposal to break up California into three states received enough signatures on Tuesday to make it onto the November 6 ballot. Now all it takes is a majority of California voters supporting it to start dismantling the country´s most populous, wealthy and radical state. The Los Angeles Times provides some more details on what would be "the first division of an existing U.S. state since the creation of West Virginia in 1863": If a majority of voters who cast ballots agree, a long and contentious process would begin for three separate states to take the place of California,

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters on Thursday that she is confused why Americans aren’t “uprising” against the Trump administration over conditions on the border with Mexico. The California Democrat’s weekly press briefing veered into explosive territory when the subject of illegal immigration came up. Mrs. Pelosi said there may be “uprisings” over children who are separated at the U.S. southern border when asylum seekers decide not to arrive at a proper checkpoint. “I just don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country, and maybe there will be when people realize that this is a policy

Chelsea Clinton seems to have a very thin skin these days. Some guy on Twitter did a PhotoShop portraying her as Howdy Doody (unfortunately for her, they do look alike), and she fired back, in the creepiest passive-aggressive way you can imagine, all but doxxing the guy. Thanks to Richard & all the people on @Twitter who’ve compared me to Howdy Doody, I now know a bit about him, including that he stood up to bullies & believed in being kind to animals. I’m always happy to be on the side of allyship & kindness. Thanks again!
