  • Hill Republicans say they're growing frustrated with Mattis (Wants Dems In Positions)

    Politico ^ | March 22, 2017 | Eli Stokols and Eliana Johnson
    Defense Secretary James Mattis’ unconventional choices for top Pentagon posts and his reluctance to aggressively push for dramatic increases in the defense budget have rankled Republicans on Capitol Hill who say he’s burning through political capital he needs as he begins reshaping the Pentagon. (Snip) But Republican lawmakers and senior congressional aides said in recent interviews they’re running out of patience with Mattis' staffing decisions, which have disappointed Republican members of the Senate Armed Services Committee hoping to see their ideological allies elevated to senior levels in the Defense Department. Others are grumbling about Mattis’ refusal to advocate a bigger...

    REMINDER – One of the larger hurdles President Trump faces is a need to re-educate an entire generation on a fundamentally new vision of the U.S. economy. A return to a Pro-Main Street, goods-based, manufacturing, technology, innovation and industry driven economic model. Interestingly, many people have referenced a 1991 (25 years old) video of Donald Trump testifying before congress – as evidence of him being tuned in to political consequences of economic activity. The entire video is well worth watching because it gives you insight into a very specific moment in time as they discuss the ‘Reagan era’ 1986 tax...

    The Mexican government is strongly controlling the optics of a visit today by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and DHS Secretary General John Kelly. [An upcoming press conference live stream is embedded below ] Mexico fears the projection of U.S. strength will undermine their position. President Trump is taking a hard-line approach with Mexico’s central policies that have allowed, and in many cases facilitated, vast numbers of economic migrants to travel into the U.S. Trump’s pending policies are going to be weighted heavily on the feedback he receives from T-Rex and General Kelly’s visit.

Maduro said Sunday he wants CNN “outside” Venezuela after he claimed the news channel manipulated information about a student’s complaint regarding the lack of food at school. “Some media like CNN tried to manipulate information,” he said. “They can not manipulate information like that, it’s our affair, of Venezuelans. CNN does not need to put its nose in Venezuela … I want CNN well away from here.”

Isikoff did not expect to hear Assad confirm President Trump’s position that terrorists are embedded within the refugee community.

    It used to be pretty obvious which cars, trucks and SUVs were built in the U.S. (Detroit's Big Three of Ford, GM and Chrysler, although Chrysler has since merged with Fiat) and which weren't (everything else). Then in the 1980's the Japanese started building cars here, which made for some interesting arguments about what constituted an 'American' car. But in today's global economy, it's even harder to answer the question: Is your car made in America?Many consumers looking to buy an American-built vehicle have a difficult time identifying one that's assembled here with 100-percent American-built components.

Trump also slammed conservative talk show host Charlie Sykes as a "lowlife" and said establishment Republicans and Gov. Scott Walker were mobilizing against him here as political payback. See video.

    On February 26, the ayatollahs have scheduled two "elections" in Iran: one for the parliament and one for the Assembly of Experts, a body that is supposed to monitor the supreme leader and choose a replacement when the time comes.
