    An in-house writer and longtime friend of the Trump family has stepped forward with an apology for her involvement in the preparation of Melania Trump's speech to the Republican National Convention Monday night, which bore similarities to a Michelle Obama speech. The staffer, who identified herself in a statement as Meredith McIver, said she submitted her resignation Tuesday but the Trump family rejected it. A person she [Melania] has always liked is Michelle Obama. Over the phone, she read me some passages from Mrs. Obamas speech as examples. I wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in...

    An employee of Donald Trumps company on Wednesday took responsibility for the passages in Melania Trumps Monday night convention speech that were drawn from Michelle Obamas address to the 2008 Democratic convention. Meredith McIver, an in-house staff writer with the Trump Organization, apologized in a statement distributed by the campaign. She said the Republican presidential nominee had rejected her offer to resign. The striking similarities between parts of Mrs. Trumps speech and Mrs. Obamas 2008 speech eclipsed the conventions opening days and complicated the Republican Partys effort to reintroduce Mr. Trump to the nation.

    At the Last Supper, Jesus commanded the 12 Apostles to “do this in remembrance of me.”The “this” is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, also called the Divine Liturgy by Eastern Rite Catholics.When Christianity was new, misunderstood and outlawed, Saint Justin Martyr, one of the first Christian philosophers who understood Greek thought and Christian doctrine to be compatible, defended Christian doctrine and liturgical practices from secular political power, claiming Christians should not be persecuted. In his Apology, a detailed written defense of Christianity, one of the earliest descriptions of the Catholic Mass is found. “And this food is called among us...

Below the heading were depictions of children playing. The white children were labeled as behaving "cool" while children of color were depicted as misbehaving, or "not cool," for breaking pool safety rules.

He could also have added that Hiroshima would not have happened had Japan, having lost the war, surrendered. But the fanatic Japanese leaders refused, and vowed to fight a scorched earth final battle on Japanese soil. This meant a potential U.S. invasion of the Japanese homeland, an invasion that would have led to an horrific battle. That battle would have...

Politics aside, trying combat the spread of communism has never been easy and CIA agents did what was necessary to protect the United States.
