    Kim Jong-un has threatened the US with a "great war" over their plans to stop his nuclear weapons programme. The US has warned the Hermit Kingdom to cease its nuclear warmongering, and has revealed that "all options are on the table" including military action. After a US war fleet was deployed to the Korean peninsula, the tubby tyrant warned he had the missiles to wipe it out with "one strike" and could fire a missile at American heartland. Following his latest threat, the US military has planned to urgently hold drills for evacuating US civilians from the area. The Courageous...

    President Trump planned to have dinner with the justices of the Supreme Court on Thursday evening, but the White House said Sunday evening the event will take place on a future date because of scheduling conflicts. Newly confirmed Justice Neil Gorsuch was slated to attend, but it was not clear which of the eight other justices might be present. Trump’s successful nomination of Gorsuch to the court is seen as a key accomplishment of his first 100 days in office, as he made good on a major promise of his campaign to fill the vacant seat left by Justice Antonin...

    Valor Global Services, a Scottsdale-based global technology company, is continuing its fast growth by hiring 120 in the next two quarters after growing with new tech partnerships.

    UNITED NATIONS — President Trump, who recently had Ted Nugent, Sarah Palin and Kid Rock over for a White House dinner, is planning to host 14 diplomats from around the world for lunch on Monday. The diplomats are members of the powerful United Nations Security Council, an eclectic mix of America’s friends and rivals, and plenty of skeptics. Their guide to the White House is Mr. Trump’s outspoken envoy, Nikki R. Haley. Halibut is on the menu, and a cheese soufflé, which one Council diplomat hoped would not be the most substantial part of the White House visit. As of...

    Talk is already heating up that President Trump could have a chance to appoint a second person to the Supreme Court. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said this week that another opening could come as soon as this summer, and there have been rumors that Justice Anthony Kennedy, often a swing voter on the court, could retire soon. Kennedy, 80, was nominated to the court by President Reagan....

    Aramis Ayala is no stranger to hate. As the first African-American elected to state attorney in Florida and a controversial prosecutor ― known for her refusal to seek the death penalty in an aggressive capital punishment state ― she’s had to field plenty of racist and ugly rhetoric from her neighbors. But Ayala, who serves Osceola and Orange counties, doesn’t back down when she’s the victim of a crime. In March, she received two racist letters over two weeks, one of which contained a noose made of twine, her office confirmed to The Huffington Post. Calling the package a hate...

    While a deal to fund the government this week won't necessarily include funding for the construction of a complete border wall, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus on Sunday said there will be "enough to get going" — even as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called it "immoral." Asked by "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd in an exclusive interview whether the Trump administration would push a government shutdown if border wall funding is not included in a bill to fund the government this week, Priebus said, "it will be enough in the negotiation for us to either move...

    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — Saudi Arabia's King Salman issued a decree late Saturday naming one of his sons, an air force pilot who has taken part in coalition strikes against the Islamic State group, as the kingdom's new ambassador to the U.S. The appointment of Prince Khaled bin Salman to Washington signals the kingdom's eagerness to strengthen bilateral ties under President Donald Trump. As the king's son, the prince has a direct line to the Saudi monarch. Saudi Arabia is the world's third largest defence spender. Prince Khaled's appointment positions him as an influential broker in deals with U.S. manufacturers....

    Entertainment Ireland ^ | April 23, 2017
    On the run-up to the election, Michael Moore was one of the few public figures who correctly predicted that Trump would win the election. More to the point, Moore pointed out Trump's methodology for victory and sure enough, that's exactly what happened. You'd have to wonder how a middle-aged filmmaker managed to out-think the likes of Nate Silver and dozens of other pollsters, but here we are - living in the awful reality that a fat, corrupt hustler with spray-tan is now the leader of the free world. In a recent interview at the Tribeca Film Festival, Moore was asked...

    Ethiopia, Sunday -- Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has urged African leaders to stop “ideological meandering”. Leaders, he said, should thoroughly discuss and distill positions which can help their people transform and develop using their natural resources. Museveni added that focus should be on home-based solutions and self-reliance. He said new US President Donald Trump’s “America First” policies will jolt Africans into the reality of their situation. “I love Trump. I love that man Trump because that man has told you that he is not your uncle. And I think it is good. For those Africans who feel orphaned, am sorry...
  • Trump supporters don't have buyer's remorse but some Clinton voters do: Poll

    The Toronto Sun ^ | April 23, 2017 | Aaron Blake, The Washington Post
    Anecdotal stories about disillusioned supporters of Donald Trump are overdone. The fact is that, on a broad scale, Trump supporters say they aren't disappointed. In fact, a poll showed they were more pleased than disappointed, by about 5 to 1: "...The Pew Research Center released a poll showing very little buyer's remorse among Trump voters. The poll showed just 7% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say Trump has performed worse than they expected him to. Fully 38% - five times as many - say he has performed better." A new Washington Post-ABC News poll confirms this - in spades. And,...

    It feels as if a week doesn’t go by without North Korea’s diminutive dictator, Kim Jong-un, threatening to nuke somebody… usually the United States. In fact, it happens so often that it’s barely worth reporting on it any longer. But following the recent productive meetings between Australian leaders and Vice President Pence, the chubby autocrat has decided to expand the exclusive club of North Korean nuclear targets to include the Land Down Under. (NBC News) North Korea has launched into a war of words against Australia over the country’s alliance with the U.S., warning the country is within striking range...

    Julius Krein sits in a cafe on the ground floor of his office building in downtown Boston, wearing a green corduroy blazer and a neat part in his hair. He’s just launched a tweedy magazine called American Affairs, and the press has dubbed it “the intellectual journal of Trumpism.” It’s a useful label, in some respects. “Frankly,” Krein says, poking at an apricot tart, “it gets me a lot of clicks.” But it’s also made the magazine a target for criticism. Trump, as one skeptical columnist put it, is a “deeply flawed tribune” for an intellectual movement — an anti-intellectual,...

    Last fall, just weeks before Election Day, I traveled the old Lincoln Highway, from the Appalachian Mountains to the Rockies, to learn the attitudes of voters who lived miles from the off-ramps of the main interstates and coastal America. Known as US 30, the mostly two-lane highway connects 13 states and 128 counties between Times Square and San Francisco. It was on that trip, especially in the Rust Belt states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Iowa, that a realization unfolded: Many had already decided they were not voting for Hillary Clinton. These voters appeared to defy polls and conventional wisdom....

    The book tour Rachel Dolezal set out on recently has wound up taking her further than I might have imagined. In fact, she made it all the way to South Africa at the invitation of one Clyde Ramalaine, a former priest who now refers to himself as a “bishop” but actually runs a communications company. Her appearance didn’t go off without a hitch, however, Many of the black, South African students in attendance were, shall we say, a bit less than receptive. (Daily Mail) Deriding Ms Dolezal’s claim to ‘racial fludity’, she was told by a member of the mostly-black...

    "I told him then, I said, ‘She’s the devil, and she will turn on you,'" the Trump strategist reportedly said of Kelly. President Donald Trump's chief strategist, Steve Bannon, has opened up about the rift between his political website Breitbart and Fox News — and he blames Megyn Kelly. In a recent interview with Politico, Bannon said, "The big rift between Breitbart and Fox was all over Megyn Kelly. She was all over Trump nonstop.” Kelly, who has since departed Fox News despite an enormous offer from the network, made headlines when she accused then-CEO Roger Ailes of sexual harassment...

    You’d think the leading voices in the media and among pollsters would have learned their lesson after being so off the mark in their coverage of Donald Trump. They’re losing their grasp on both reality and their readers. But instead of correcting course, many of them are doubling down in the sanity. Just last week we saw this in play in the pages of – where else? – The New York Times. As if not content to let their November election night prediction that Hillary Clinton had a 92% chance of winning the presidency, the English-speaking world’s liberal paper of...

    Democratic Rep. Mark DeSaulnier told an 11-year-old girl at a middle school in California Wednesday that President Donald Trump is more dangerous than a terrorist. While speaking at a town hall at Stanley Middle School in Lafayette, Calif., DeSaulnier moved to the Q&A portion of the event after his talk and answered the final question from Eden, an 11-year-old girl, with a bang, East Bay Times reported Saturday. “From the mouths of babes,” DeSaulnier said. “I think you should be concerned. This is dangerous stuff. I’ve said a few times, the most dangerous person in America isn’t a terrorist, it’s...

    President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump visited Walter Reed Medical Center on Saturday, where the President awarded the Purple Heart to a wounded soldier. Trump presented the medal to Sgt. First Class Alvaro Barrientos and thanked him on behalf of himself and the first lady. Barrientos’ wife, Tammy, was present for the short ceremony. “When I heard about this, I wanted to do this myself,” Trump said as he placed the Purple Heart on the soldier’s lapel. “Congratulations. Tremendous.” The Purple Heart is awarded to American service members who are wounded or killed in combat. Barrientos was recently...
