    Hillary Clinton said, "Jesus Christ said, 'Suffer the little children unto me' not 'let the little children suffer.'" Three former first ladies — Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama — have stepped out their political retirement to condemn the Trump administration's practice of separating parents and children at the border while parents are prosecuted for illegally entering the country. Speaking at a women's group in New York City on Monday, Clinton called family separation "an affront to our values" and said she had warned Trump's immigration policy would lead to this during her 2016 presidential campaign against him. And...

    The Politico ^ | June 17, 2018 | Brent D. Griffiths
    President Donald Trump attacked Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Sunday, saying the New York Democrat was wrong when he criticized the president's historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as "all hat and no cattle." "Thank you Chuck, but are you sure you got that right? No more nuclear testing or rockets flying all over the place, blew up launch sites," the president wrote on Twitter. "Hostages already back, hero remains coming home & much more!" Schumer, in a speech on the Senate floor on Wednesday, questioned just what the U.S. gained from the summit. “The summit...
  • Are Democrats brave enough to run a woman against Donald Trump?

    Democrats agree that Donald Trump’s history of bragging about groping and assaulting women is unacceptable, but they don’t agree about how to deal with it in 2020. The tension has spilled into the open in the ongoing debate about Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s role in galvanizing Senate Democrats to call for Sen. Al Franken to step down over misconduct. Even white college-educated women, Hillary Clinton’s biggest supporters, are divided. “We loved him,” Marsha Pearcy, 58, said sadly to Gillibrand at a private event for professional women in Washington on Tuesday night. Pearcy barely finished saying Franken’s name when quiet murmurs and...
  • Facebook "embeds," Russia and the Trump campaign's secret weapon

    Tonight you will hear from the man President Donald Trump appointed as his 2020 re-election campaign manager. His name is Brad Parscale, and he got the job because - as we first reported in October - Parscale was the president's secret weapon in his 2016 run for the White House. 42-year-old Parscale was one of the campaign's top decision-makers, operating largely out of public view. He was hired to run the digital team, but over time he came to oversee advertising, data collection and much of the fund-raising. He says his main task was competing with the Clinton Campaign's huge...

    The Singapore summit actually made the world a safer place. The president’s critics won’t admit it. For congressional Democrats, it’s payback time. Ever since 2015, when Barack Obama struck a nuclear deal with Iran, prominent Republicans—including Donald Trump and his top foreign policy advisers—have accused Obama and his Democratic supporters of, in Mike Pompeo’s words, “surrender.” They’ve accused Obama of signing a deal that doesn’t meaningfully restrain Iran’s nuclear ambitions and, by seeking a warmer relationship with its regime, of betraying Iran’s long-suffering people. The irony, therefore, is nearly irresistible. In his nuclear summit this week in Singapore, Trump gave...

    A company run by former officials at Cambridge Analytica, the political consulting firm brought down by a scandal over how it obtained Facebook users’ private data, has quietly been working for President Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election effort, The Associated Press has learned. The AP confirmed that at least four former Cambridge Analytica employees are affiliated with Data Propria, a new company specializing in voter and consumer targeting work similar to Cambridge Analytica’s efforts before its collapse. The company’s former head of product, Matt Oczkowski, leads the new firm, which also includes Cambridge Analytica’s former chief data scientist. Oczkowski denied a...
  • President Trump's Place in the History of the Struggle for Liberty.

    06/15/2018 9:33:04 AM PDT · by Ozguy1945 · 2 replies
    Fellow Citizens of Freedom, America’s Founding Fathers imbued the nation with a deep seated understanding of and passion for Liberty that is an inspiration to the world. As an Australian active in 1945 commemoration in Indonesia, a nation which won independence in that year, I am a huge admirer of Douglas MacArthur. In an open letter to President Trump, I examine America’s enduring spirit of freedom and linked capacity for self-examination and redirection. I hope you will read my letter at the blog (https://freedom-demokrasi-and-civilised-humanity.com/2018/06/15/open-letter-to-the-leader-of-the-free-world-our-common-heritage-defending-freedom-today/) and discuss it here.

  • Trump Today: President says he won’t sign immigration bill without border-wall funding

    Market Watch ^ | June 15, 2018 | Robert Schroeder
    President Donald Trump said Friday he won’t sign an immigration bill that doesn’t fund a border wall, as he told journalists a Justice Department report showed “total bias” against him and announced tariffs on China. NO BILL WITHOUT WALL In an interview on Fox News, Trump said he wouldn’t sign an immigration bill that doesn’t fund his proposed border wall. Votes on immigration bills are likely in the House next week, but it’s unclear whether a bill backed by GOP leaders has enough votes to pass. Trump said he wouldn’t sign the “more moderate one” crafted by House Speaker Paul...

    Most American adults say that the meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un was a good idea, according to a Monmouth poll released Thursday. The seven-in-10 who say it's a good idea is up from 63% in late April, including 93% of Republicans, 74% of independents, and 49% of Democrats. Only 20% say it was a bad idea. The recent poll also shows 46% disapprove of the job Trump is doing as President, perhaps a side effect of the good feelings people have about his efforts on North Korea. The last time Trump's number for...

    Sen. John McCain implicitly criticized President Donald Trump on Thursday for "parroting" North Korean and Chinese rhetoric about US-South Korean joint military exercises following the summit between Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un earlier this week. "Parroting Chinese and North Korean propaganda by saying joint exercises are 'provocative' undermines our security and alliances," the Arizona Republican said in a statement. McCain's statement did not specifically mention Trump in relation to the word "provocative," but Trump had used the words "provocative" and "war games" to describe the joint military exercises at a press conference in Singapore....

    Republican strategist Steve Schmidt said Sunday that President Trump “beclowned himself” and disgraced the United States at the Group of Seven (G-7) summit. “From his slovenly appearance to his unpreparedness, ignorance and arrogance, he beclowned himself,” tweeted Schmidt, one of the loudest GOP critics of Trump. “The Republican majority is filled with cowards who are servile supplicants to the most unfit POTUS ever.”(continued)

    Mitt Romney addressed a closed-door tech summit in Utah on Thursday, telling the room he thinks President Donald Trump -- the man he once called a “phony” and a “fraud” -- will “solidly” win re-election in 2020, reports said. Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, now running for a U.S. Senate seat in Utah, told a group of GOP donors that Trump will “easily” be the party’s nominee and go on to beat his Democratic rival, Politico reported. "I think that not just because of the strong economy and the fact that people are going to see increasingly rising wages, but...
  • Sorry, Democrats, primary results prove that Trump’s agenda is a smash hit

    Fox News ^ | June 6, 2018 | David Bossie
    The results in Tuesday's primaries in eight states are an early indication that President Trump's "America First" agenda and accomplishments are winning the support of the American people. This is good news for Republicans running in the Nov. 6 midterm elections. The Trump agenda of economic growth, job creation, border security, and peace through strength abroad is causing voters to seriously consider the consequences of supporting candidates who carry the Democratic mantle of tax hikes, protecting sanctuary cities, and the hyper-partisan and baseless impeachment witch hunt. In California, it will be hard for Democrats to point to evidence that a...

    The Republican Party is Donald Trump's party. If there were any doubts about this, recent polling - which shows the president with near record levels of backing from Republican voters - confirms the fact. According to a recent Gallup Poll, Mr Trump's support among members of his own party at the 500-day mark of his presidency sits at 87%, second only to George W Bush's 96%, which came nine months after the September 11 World Trade Center attacks. A handful of other presidents since the survey started after World War II - George HW Bush, John F Kennedy, Dwight D...

    Voting precincts have closed in Alabama, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota as eight states hold primaries Tuesday, including in California where the Democratic Party’s plan to regain control of the House of Representatives faces a big test. The Fox News Decision Desk can now project that former pharmaceutical executive Bob Hugin will win Tuesday’s Republican Senate primary in New Jersey. But it is too early to project a winner on the Democratic side, where incumbent Sen. Bob Menendez is battling fellow Democrat Lisa McCormick. Menendez’s corruption and bribery case is expected to play a starring role in...

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich said he is "very, very concerned" about the upcoming meeting with North Korea, and hopes negotiations and any possible future agreement aren't just a "PR show." The Republican made the comments on CBS News' "Face the Nation," after President Trump announced he is reinstating the June 12th meeting with North Korea in Singapore, days after canceling it. Mr. Trump declared the summit a go after meeting with top North Korean official Kim Yong Chol at the White House, before he had even read a letter delivered from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Kasich emphasized that...

"I don't like all this," the former president said in response to a comment about Trump's Twitter activity. "I couldn't be elected anything now 'cause I just don't like embarrassing people. My mother would have whipped me for five days in a row when I was a little boy if I spent all my time badmouthing people like this." Clinton was speaking to Mo Rocca alongside his "The President Is Missing" co-author, James Patterson....

    Reverberations continue to sound in Tennessee's U.S. Senate race following President Donald Trump's trip last week to Nashville, where the president first attended a private fundraiser for Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn and then derided Democrat Phil Bredesen at a campaign-style rally downtown. During his speech, the president attacked Bredesen repeatedly, among other things calling the former Tennessee governor a "very liberal Democrat — I've never heard of this guy — who is he?" Trump then called him an "absolute total tool" of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., adding he specifically was recruited by Schumer with the approval of House...
