Haley sets a red line for Trump
Politico, by Eliana Johnson and Burgess Everett

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 4/19/2018 4:45:15 AM

In the span of 24 hours, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley has done what none of her colleagues in President Donald Trump’s Cabinet have before: successfully telegraphed to her boss that she will not quietly suffer his public humiliations. Haley was initially blamed by White House aides for creating confusion by speaking on national television about the administration’s plans to roll out new sanctions against Russia that the president ultimately decided to defer. But within hours of White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow’s statement Tuesday that Haley had fallen prey to “momentary confusion” and gotten

And hooray for Ambassador Haley!

She´s tough! I like her!

If there was EVER a woman who deserves to be President, it´s her, not some carpet-bagging, alcoholic, Depends queen from some town in New York she sandbagged to become a senator.

Camille Cosby Compares Husband
to Emmett Till and Blames Media
New York Times, by Sopan Deb    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 5/4/2018 4:35:37     Post Reply
Camille Cosby, the wife of the disgraced comedian Bill Cosby, disparaged the media, Mr. Cosby’s accusers and his prosecutors in a caustic statement released Thursday, her first public comments since Mr. Cosby was convicted of sexual assault last week. She called for a criminal investigation of the Montgomery County district attorney and repeatedly suggested that Mr. Cosby was targeted because of his race. In a three-page release, Mrs. Cosby explicitly blamed the media for Mr. Cosby’s fate in court, citing what she called a “frenzied, relentless demonization of him and unquestioning acceptance of accusers’ allegations without any attendant proof.” She went

Rod Rosenstein has let Mueller go far too far
New York Post, by Rich Lowry    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 5/4/2018 4:29:12     Post Reply
Rod Rosenstein is doing a star turn as principled defender of the law, but he’s performed abysmally as deputy attorney general and President Trump would be fully justified in firing him. The leaked questions special counsel Robert Mueller wants to ask Trump in a prospective deposition are, if accurate, a sign that Mueller has spun out of control on Rosenstein’s watch. The questions suggest a free-floating investigation of the president’s motives, undertaken by a subordinate of the president. This is unlike any special-counsel investigation we’ve ever seen and represents a significant distortion of our system. Per the questions, Mueller wants to know

Volkswagen ex-CEO indicted in
emissions defeat device scandal

Former Volkswagen CEO Martin Winterkorn has been charged with alleged conspiracy to defraud the United States and VW customers in the so-called "defeat device" scheme, the Department of Justice announced today. Winterkorn, who served as chairman of the board from 2007 to 2015, is the highest ranking Volkswagen official indicted in the government´s three-year probe. The automaker in 2015 admitted it had installed software designed to cheat U.S. emissions standards in around half a million diesel cars sold in the U.S. between 2009 and 2015. The computer program would detect when the car was undergoing emissions evaluations and decrease its nitrogen

State Sen. Stanley Rosenberg, for decades one of the most powerful Democrats in Massachusetts, announced Thursday that he will resign Friday after 31 years as a lawmaker because of a scandal involving his estranged husband. His decision follows Wednesday’s release of an ethics report that states Rosenberg “failed to protect the Senate” from his estranged husband, who faces charges of racially and sexually harassing Senate employees. “In light … of the disciplinary measure recommended by the ethics committee, it would not be fair to my constituents to have a representative in the Senate who lacked the authority to represent their interests fully,”

Trump acknowledges he repaid lawyer
for Stormy Daniels hush settlement

President Donald Trump acknowledged Thursday he repaid his personal lawyer for hush money given to porn actress Stormy Daniels after claiming previously he didn´t know about the payments. But the money, paid just before the 2016 election to stifle her claims of an affair, "had nothing to do with the campaign," the president tweeted. Trump said his attorney Michael Cohen received a monthly retainer, which he used to pay the actress to sign an agreement not to talk about her allegations and thus "stop the false and extortionist accusations made by her about an affair."

Hillary Clinton was back in the news last week thanks to a Sunday speech at the PEN America World Voices Festival, which sounded custom-designed to give Donald Trump a nosebleed. (Snip)What’s so wrong with Clinton’s letting off a little steam? For starters, she’s bad at it—by which I mean she too often winds up making herself look bad. Whenever she talks about What Happened, her recent book recounting her experience as a presidential candidate, Clinton comes across as self-pitying and self-justifying, in large part because she cannot resist bringing up all the other folks and forces she considers at fault.

The Justice Department is sending a battalion of federal prosecutors and immigration judges to the Southwest border to deal with a backlog of cases made worse by the so-called “caravan” of Central Americans that arrived at the U.S. border days ago, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Wednesday. “We are not going to let this country be overwhelmed,” he said in brief remarks at the Justice Department in Washington. “People are not going to caravan or otherwise stampede our border,” he added, echoing comments made by President Donald Trump.

Trump eyes Lewandowski for Kelly´s
job amid White House infighting
Fox News, by Howard Kurtz    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 5/3/2018 4:33:00     Post Reply
There are growing whispers that if John Kelly is eased out or bails out as White House chief of staff, the job could go to Corey Lewandowski. I can report, based on my sources, that the president and his first campaign manager have discussed that possibility. Lewandowski has said he would accept a White House post if Trump calls him off the bench. But in the end it´s unlikely to happen. Still, the mere fact that Lewandowski is on the radar for the top job, after the campaign fired him in the spring of 2016, underscores his rising stock and the changing

Democrats and the Trump impeachment trap
Washington Examiner [DC], by Byron York    Original Article

Former President George W. Bush was in terrible political shape in the spring of 2006. The Iraq War was going disastrously and voters were tired of the president, whose job approval rating in the RealClearPolitics average of polls was around 35 percent. (Bush´s disapproval rating was around 60 percent.) The upcoming November ´06 midterms were shaping up as a debacle for Republicans, who seemed likely to lose control of both houses of Congress. Things were so bad that a part of the Democratic base looked toward the midterms openly hoping to impeach Bush on the charge that he lied the country

Alfie Evans´ case shows that
basic English rights are at risk
Washington Examiner [DC], by Noemie Emery    Original Article

"Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" are the rights singled out by Thomas Jefferson as those most deserving the protection of government as he and his fellow founders sought to recover the ‘rights of Englishmen’ of which they felt they were being deprived. This makes it more than ironic that those rights no longer exist in the country of England, where two very young children no longer have life, after their parents had their liberty taken away and were deprived of the happiness that preserving their children’s lives had brought. Everyone knows that resources are finite and demands can be great,

Comey´s Delusion

James Comey is beginning to remind me of David Brock. In the mid 1990s, Brock wrote a book that criticized Hillary Clinton, though not to the degree many on the right hoped for. He then spent the next two decades sucking up to Hillary. Comey publicly criticized Clinton’s handling of classified emails, though he did not lower the boom that many on the right hoped for. Now Comey seems obsessed with gaining Hillary’s forgiveness. When George Stephanopoulos asked Comey what he would say to Hillary Clinton today, the former FBI director responded: “I hope you’ll read those chapters of the book. Not so

Joy Reid had cybersecurity experts and the FBI investigate her bogus claim of hacking, which is an act of fraud as pathological as Brian Williams falsely claiming a seat on a downed plane in Iraq. NBC put Williams back on the air (albeit on a more obscure perch at MSNBC) even though he never admitted to his lying. Before his return, he gave a phony interview to Matt Lauer in which he continued to cast his tale of stolen valor as a baffling mistake rather than an act of fraud. It was the classic non-apology apology, combining responsibility-dodging psychobabble with

Rudy Giuliani has said that Donald Trump re-paid Michael Cohen $130,000 after the personal attorney made the initial hush money payment to a porn star who claims to have had an affair with the president over a decade ago. Giuliani, who has joined Trump´s legal team in recent weeks, made the statement during an interview with Sean Hannity on the Fox News Channel late Wednesday. Cohen faces a criminal probe into his business affairs by federal prosecutors in Manhattan, including over the $130,000 payment, which he has called legal. The payment was made to Stormy Daniels, an adult film actress who was

NEW YORK — For 108 years, the Boy Scouts of America´s flagship program has been known simply as the Boy Scouts. With girls soon entering the ranks, the group says that iconic name will change. The organization on Wednesday announced a new name for its Boy Scouts program: Scouts BSA. The change will take effect next February. Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh said many possibilities were considered during lengthy and "incredibly fun" deliberations before the new name was chosen. "We wanted to land on something that evokes the past but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward," he said. "We´re

These Congress members are sleeping on the job — and defending their right to do it. Crying poverty amid decade-long stagnant salaries and Washington’s steep cost of living, an increasing number of House lawmakers have turned into professional squatters at night, hitting the sack in their Capitol Hill offices — on everything from cots in closets to futons stashed behind constituent couches — to save a few bucks during the work week. “Washington is too expensive,” said Rep. Dan Donovan (R-SI), who credits the cot that he sleeps on in a tiny alcove in his office as the reason he

The reform movement fueled by political centrists is getting stronger all over the country, but it needs a heavyweight 2020 Independent presidential candidate to gain national traction and big-time financial backing. Ohio Gov. John Kasich ought to take up that challenge. He can’t get the nomination of his own party. Although he’s a lifelong Republican who won statewide in a key battleground state the GOP needs to win the presidency, he’s become much too moderate, not to mention high-principled and independent, for the party.

A Christian’s primary purpose is not to defend his own religious liberty. It’s not even to fight abortion — as vital as that task is. His basic task on this Earth isn’t protecting Christian education or preserving the freedom of Christian artists. Each of those things is important. Each of those things is necessary. But their defense cannot and must not compromise our true purpose. And what is that purpose? I’m reminded of the Westminster Shorter Catechism: “What is the chief end of man? Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy Him forever.”

Former Secretary of State John Kerry argued Tuesday that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu essentially laid out the case for the Iran nuclear deal during a presentation alleging that Tehran was developing weapons in secret. “Every detail PM Netanyahu presented yesterday was every reason the world came together to apply years of sanctions and negotiate the Iran nuclear agreement — because the threat was real and had to be stopped,” Kerry tweeted. “It’s working!” Kerry added of the Obama-era agreement he helped negotiate. “That’s why Israeli security experts are speaking out.”

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is changing its name for the first time in its 108-year history. The scouting organization, originally designed for boys ages 11-17, will be called “Scouts: BSA” starting in February, The Associated Press reported. The move to a gender-neutral name arrives on the heels of the organization’s decision to accept female members next year. Girls already started enrolling as Cub Scouts this year and more than 3,000 have reportedly joined so far.

An African American woman said she felt humiliated after American Airlines called police on her because a white passenger complained about her arm touching hers on a Raleigh-Durham flight last week. "The cops were called on me for flying while fat & Black,” Amber Phillips said in a series of tweets that were first reported by The Washington Post. The incident happened on a flight to Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C., Phillips said. “Flight attendant called the cops on me bc I made the white woman sitting next to me uncomfortable bc my arm was touching hers,” Phillips tweeted.
