    White House efforts to limit access to President Donald Trump's conversations with foreign leaders extended to phone calls with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Russian leader Vladimir Putin, according to people familiar with the matter. Those calls -- both with leaders who maintain controversial relationships with Trump -- were among the presidential conversations that aides took remarkable steps to keep from becoming public. In the case of Trump's call with Prince Mohammed, officials who ordinarily would have been given access to a rough transcript of the conversation never saw one, according to one of the sources. Instead, a...

    A CNN photo editor has resigned after anti-Semitic tweets he sent in 2011 surfaced, including one in which he mentioned “Jewish pigs” killed in a terror attack in Jerusalem, according to reports. Mohammed Elshamy, 25, a former photojournalist with the Turkish Anadolu news agency, quit late Thursday after an employee of Israel’s Government Press Office flagged some of his offensive tweets, the Times of Israel reported.
  • This Minnesota Town Just Scrapped The Pledge Of Allegiance.

    The cancer of political correctness has reared its ugly head once again. This time the plague struck a Minnesota town, where the local council voted unanimously to drop the pledge of allegiance to be more inclusive. St. Louis Park wants to be more welcoming to newcomers and non-citizens and they decided the best way to do that was to trash a hallmark tradition. To be more welcoming to non-citizens, Americans just need to…not act like Americans. It’s this nonsense that gives me hope, along with the booming economy, that Trump will easily clinch a second term. It’s also partially why...
  • House Republicans hit plan to drop terror panel for one probing Trump

    House Republicans are up in arms over a plan by the new Democratic chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee that could abolish the panel’s anti-terrorism subcommittee and replace it with one that will focus in part on President Trump’s business interests and how they affect U.S. foreign policy. The reorganization eyed by new committee Chairman Eliot Engel, New York Democrat, was first reported by The New Yorker. “I am disappointed with [Mr. Engel‘s] reported plans to eliminate the Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade Subcommittee for one dedicated to investigations,” Texas Rep. Mike McCaul, the ranking Republican on the House foreign...
  • F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia

    01/11/2019 5:34:14 PM PST · by springwater13 · 194 replies
    In the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests, according to former law enforcement officials and others familiar with the investigation. The inquiry carried explosive implications. Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security. Agents also sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence. The investigation the F.B.I. opened into Mr....

    WASHINGTON — At workplaces across the United States, it is routine for Americans’ conversations to turn to President Trump — whether his policies are good, whether he should be impeached, what to think about the “resistance.” Some drink from MAGA mugs; others tape cartoons to their cubicle walls portraying Mr. Trump as a Russian quisling. But roughly two million people who work for the federal government have now been told that it may be illegal for them to participate in such discussions at work — a pronouncement that legal specialists say breaks new ground, and that some criticized as going...

    The head of Germany’s domestic security service has been dismissed for a speech in which he criticized government parties, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said on Monday. Seehofer said the speech made by Hans-Georg Maassen, in which he accused the Social Democrats (SPD), junior partners in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition, of “naivety” and harboring “radical left” elements, was unacceptable. […] Germany’s ruling coalition had agreed in September to transfer spy chief Maassen to the Interior Ministry following accusations that he harbored far-right views. …

    Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said Monday that nearly one-third of employees at his department are not loyal to him and President Donald Trump, adding that he is working to change the department’s regulatory culture to be more business friendly. Zinke, a former Navy SEAL, said he knew when he took over the 70,000-employee department in March that, “I got 30 percent of the crew that’s not loyal to the flag.” In a speech to an oil industry group, Zinke compared Interior to a pirate ship that captures “a prized ship at sea and only the captain and the first mate...

    FULL TITLE: Celebrities Melt Down over Trump’s Transgender Military Policy: ‘You Just Pissed Off the Wrong Community’ Hollywood stars took to social media Wednesday to express outrage over President Donald Trump’s announcement that transgender people will not be allowed to serve in the U.S. military, reversing former President Obama’s decision last year allowing them to do so. “After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military,” President Trump tweeted Wednesday morning. “Our military must be focused on...

    Obama hold-over Ambassador Paul W. Jones tried to sabotage Trump’s trip to Poland according to diplomatic sources. Jones attempted to mislead the Trump advance team to believe that the Polish people still love former Polish President Lech Walesa and to hold extensive meetings and photo ops with him. Despite Walesa’s historical achievements during Solidarity, numerous scandals since that time including accusations of his work as a Communist collaborator have altered views of Lech Walesa in Poland. At this point, Lech Walesa has fallen out of favor with much of Poland, and the current Law and Justice Party, which welcomed President...

    DB Daily Update ^ | 6.19.2017 | David Blackmon
    In an absurdly hostile interview with Fox News’s trending-left host Chris Wallace on Sunday morning, Trump Attorney Jay Sekulow emphatically stated that the President is “not under investigation” by special counsel Bob Mueller. This runs contrary, of course, to the fake Washington Post report from last Wednesday, which cited five anonymous “sources” who assured the Post’s fake reporters that President Trump is indeed the subject of the investigation. Wallace was incredulous, since he apparently still believes the Post is a real news source, and others in the fake news media spent much of the day tut-tutting about Mr. Sekulow’s contention....

    O say can you see, the Statue of Liberty? A portion of Lady Liberty mysteriously went dark save for the iconic colossal's torch and crown on Tuesday night. The statue was cast in darkness for at least an hour around 11 p.m. and even the National Park Service seemed perplexed by the New York harbor’s black void. “Some lights on the Statue were temporarily off tonight,” a spokesman for the Statue of Liberty National Monument tweeted. The “unplanned outage” may have been due to emergency generator project as part of its “last remaining Hurricane Sandy recovery,” but park official Jerry...

    State Department diplomats are circulating a memo objecting to President Trump’s executive order last week to suspend the nation’s refugee program and deny U.S. entry to citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries in the Middle East. The document is destined for what’s known as the State Department’s “dissent channel,” which was set up during the Vietnam War as a way for diplomats to signal their disagreement on foreign policy decisions to senior management. The communications are typically private. It is not known whether the memo has been submitted yet to Acting Secretary of State Thomas Shannon, a holdover from the...

    When likely EPA Secretary Scott Pruitt walks into his first day at the office, “He’ll have 16,000 employees working against him,” Sen. James Lankford told a large gathering of libertarian donors Saturday evening.“And I expect a flood of lawsuits over everything he does.”Pruitt, who has been nominated to lead the EPA by President Donald Trump, is the attorney general of Lankford’s state, Oklahoma. He has faced fierce opposition from the environmentalist left.Lankford, who chairs the Senate Oversight Subcommittee on Energy Policy, Health Care and Entitlements, was joined on stage by Sens. Mike Lee and Pat Toomey. Their panel, moderated by Americans for Prosperity...

    Just days after The National Park Service (NPS) was forced to shut down its Twitter activity over two retweets the Department of the Interior deemed inconsistent with the agency’s mission, the Twitter account for Badlands National Park in South Dakota seems to have gone rogue, tweeting numerous scientific facts about climate change that have since been deleted. The first tweet about climate science came at 11:40 a.m. local time Tuesday. It said: “The pre-industrial concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was 280 parts per million (ppm). As of December 2016, 404.93 ppm.”

    A solicitation on the Department of Defense's Small Business Innovation Research web site is looking for a smart company to develop biodegradable ammunition. The military would like to see projectile cartridges—which are rarely all cleaned up after a live-fire exercise—made out of biodegradable plastic. The military also references a research paper on the use of biodegradable plastics reinforced with bamboo fibers. But the Pentagon isn't stopping there. It also wants spent ammunition and casings to contain bioengineered seeds that would, after several months, grow environmentally friendly plants that would remove soil contaminants. The proposal even specifies that animals "should be...

    Several federal agencies are accelerating hiring in the final days of the Obama administration to ensure that as many new employees as possible are in place before President-elect Donald Trump imposes a promised hiring freeze. Leaders at these agencies are filling open positions with transfers and outside hires and are making internal promotions before Trump takes office Jan. 20, according to internal documents and interviews. The hiring could increase tensions between the Trump transition team and the Obama administration — a relationship that has grown worse in recent days due to disagreements over how the United States should handle its...

    A coalition of 25 student groups at the University of Maryland have issued a letter to the school’s administrators containing 64 demands to help “marginalized student populations” feel more welcome on campus. Among the demands is a ban on public screenings of the film “American Sniper.” The group, who call themselves ProtectUMD, sent the letter in the wake of President-Elect Donald Trump’s victory, according the Diamondback student newspaper Monday. In response to Trump’s election, the student coalition demanded additional support and protection for minority groups — particularly the Muslim, illegal immigrant, pro-Palestinian, and LGBT communities. The Muslims students especially wished...

    The Republican National Committee (RNC) was not happy that Ron Paul, who had won second place in Minnesota's February of 2012 caucuses, ended up with over three-quarters of the state's delegates to the Republican National Convention. The RNC was not happy with Paul's delegates' large wins in other states either. The rules had allowed an outsider to win. Therefore, the insiders decided the rules needed to be changed. Well, what do you know! Because of the new rules for allotting delegates to the winner on caucus night, the insiders are now fretting that the winning of the state's delegates...
