WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is rejecting requests from U.S. embassies to fly the rainbow pride flag on embassy flagpoles during June, LGBTQ Pride Month, three American diplomats tell NBC News. The U.S. embassies in Israel, Germany, Brazil and Latvia are among those that have requested permission from Trump's State Department to fly the pride flag on their flagpoles and have been denied, diplomats said.

If the state permits one group to fly its flag, it must permit *ALL* groups to fly their flags. Otherwise, the government is subject to a flood of Constitutional-based discrimation lawsuits. It's the only logical and Consitutional approach.

If they break the rule for one group, they are in for massive lawsuits if they don't break that same rule for other groups!!! It's that simple!!!

Our federal government has designated maybe 80 different causes to be celebrated in June. Many have flags. They can’t all be flown. Let’s have only the American Flag.

I don't think this is anti-gay. I think it is just being fair to all groups of people. All groups make up the United States of America, not just one or two. There are so many groups in this country, we would need to fly multiple flags multiple times a day to cover them all. To fly the rainbow flag would be to show favoritism. That said, I am not anti-gay. Rather, I am for ALL law-abiding Americans -- gay, straight, or somewhere in between. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness -- under the law -- under Almighty God.

My deepest apologies for the chat. #17. There is nothing to discuss, by joint resolution of the US Congress in Dec 1942, *NO* flag will be flown above the US flag. The only exception is the Christian banner indicating services at sea. When the services are completed, the banner is removed. No argument in the newspaper. I can believe an art teacher pulling this, but a principal ?

Why not just write to the Chamber of Commerce for either Sodom or Gomorrah and ask for one of their flags. They'll be so happy to pass them along for free, as long as their message gets out. /s

Enough of this Pride nonsense. They are only trying to convince themselves that what they do behind closed doors is not shameful and contrary to nature. They will never convince the rest of us and all they do is embarrass the country.

Donald Trump abandoned the Iran nuclear deal to spite Barack Obama, according to a leaked memo written by the UK's former ambassador in the US. Sir Kim Darroch described the move as an act of "diplomatic vandalism", according to the Mail on Sunday. The paper says the memo was written after the then Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson appealed to the US in 2018 to stick with the nuclear deal.

President Donald Trump should "admit that climate change is real" and start figuring out ways to confront it. That wasn't advice from prominent congressional Democrats Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez but rather from one of the president's staunchest allies in Congress: Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. "I'm tired of playing defense on the environment," Graham told reporters on Capitol Hill Wednesday as he and other GOP lawmakers announced the formation of the Roosevelt Conservation Caucus, which will "embrace and promote constructive efforts to resolve conservation and environmental problems." In response to a question about the president's environmental record, Graham said Trump should agree

Former President Bill Clinton, on the other hand, faced fresh criticism surrounding his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, who on Monday was indicted on sex trafficking charges.

Why did Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta resign? His supposed “offense” was declining to prosecute Jeffrey Epstein in return for the billionaire sex predator’s guilty plea in state court (and concomitant jail sentence) when he was U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida. That is hardly an offense or even scandalous. It’s a professional decision that prosecutors across the country make every day. You can agree or disagree with it, but it is hardly grounds to lose your next job over. So what is going on here? The least likely possibility is that there really was something scandalous about Acosta’s decision.
