    The Daily O ^ | June 27, 2017
    Forget handshakes, count the bear hugs. For one, it was not Prime Minister Narendra Modi but President of the United States Donald J Trump who was responsible for that. The first official White House state guest was here and POTUS Trump couldn’t get excited enough. India-US ties never looked so overtly expressive and gushing. All the hype aside, both in the Indian and American media, there were concerns and justified caution over the meeting, even though chatter in the diplomatic and consular circles kept assuring journalists that “red carpet” would be rolled out for PM Modi at the White House....

Flynn’s intervention on behalf of Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz was highly unusual, and included a letter in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationary, a public interview in...

    Breitbart ^ | June 26, 2017 | Dr. Susan Berry
    The pro-life base of the Republican Party is calling for GOP senators to fulfill their promises following suggestions the final GOP healthcare bill may still subsidize abortions in health insurance plans and may not defund abortion giant Planned Parenthood. In a statement following the news that the Senate parliamentarian may reject the pro-life provisions in the Obamacare replacement plan, Susan B. Anthony president Marjorie Dannenfelser and Family Research Council president Tony Perkins released a joint statement, asserting their expectations from the U.S. Senators who belong to the political party that claims to be pro-life.

    The US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley declared on Twitter that any chemical weapons attack by Bashar Assad's Syrian government on his own citizens "will be blamed on Assad but also on Russia and Iran who support him killing his own people." Haley's tweet ended with the words: "Stay tuned for more tomorrow." It followed a White House warning that Assad would pay a heavy price if he again resorted to chemical weapons against his own people. The US military believes the preparations are similar to those made before the April 4 chemical weapons attack......

    Executive leadership coach Lolly Daskal has worked with hundreds of millionaires and billionaires. The secret to their success doesn't boil down to one specific habit, routine or personality trait, she tells CNBC: "The secret of the true billionaire is what's going on on the inside." "There's so much literature out there about how to succeed," she continues. "Most of the books talk about 'how': Do this and you will be that. But it doesn't work that way. We have it backwards. What we really need to do is to figure out who we are on the inside. We need to...

Sikh Referendum Campaigners were actively involved in "Referendum 2020" campaign by coordinating, participating and holding gatherings in the villages...

    The US says it has identified 'potential preparations' for another chemical attack in Syria, and issued a stark warning to the Syrian government. The White House said the activities were similar to those made before a suspected chemical attack in April. Dozens died in that attack and prompted President Donald Trump to order a strike against a Syrian air base. The US statement warned President Bashar al-Assad of "a heavy price" if another strike occurred. It said "another chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime" was likely to result "in the mass murder of civilians." The statement added: "As we...

  • Neil Gorsuch’s Early Opinions Reveal A Deeply Conservative Supreme Court Justice

    QUARTZ ^ | June 26, 2017
    During a US presidential debate in October, then candidate Donald Trump said he would be looking to appoint Supreme Court justices “in the mold” of the late Antonin Scalia. Neil Gorsuch, sworn in on April 10, has yet to disappoint. Gorsuch, 49, is at the very beginning of a lifetime appointment, but his recent stances on the travel ban, LGBT parents’ rights, and gun laws say a lot about what’s to come. In his first few months, Gorsuch has sided four times with justice Clarence Thomas, thought to be the most conservative judge on the bench. “[Today] we got a...

    COMBAT AIRCRAFT ^ | JUNE 23, 2017
    At approximately 18.43hrs local time on June 18, a US Navy F/A-18E Super Hornet operating over Syria shot down a Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) Su-22M4 ‘Fitter’ fighter-bomber near Tabqah, Syria.

Its pilot engaged the ‘Fitter’ and initially fired an AIM-9X Sidewinder close-range heat-seeking missile from a range of about half a mile, which was defeated by flares launched by the Su-22 pilot. The Super Hornet then re-engaged and fired...

    The Hill ^ | March 1, 2017 | Alan Collinge
    The nation owes about $1.5 trillion in student loans today. Nearly $1 trillion of this was added during the last president’s term. Student loan debt has skyrocketed past credit card debt, and all other revolving consumer debt combined. By the end of next year, the country will pass the $2 trillion mark. This debt is strapped to 44 million people in the country, who carry an average debt of $34,000. Interest alone on this amount is about $90 billion per year. In President Trump’s joint session address last night, however, he said absolutely nothing about the student loan problem.

    They are the social media stars of politics: controversial leaders of the world’s two largest democracies who won power by attacking the ruling establishment and pledging to revive their national economies. President Trump, 71, and Narendra Modi, 66, the prime minister of India, are also renowned for their fierce handshakes, so most expected a show of bravado when they met for the first time yesterday. As it happened, the handshakes — there were two, firm but not overtly aggressive — played second fiddle to Melania, the first lady, who upstaged them in a $2,160 dress by Emilio Pucci. The White...
