“California’s skyrocketing housing costs, taxes prompt exodus of residents”
A growing number of Bay Area residents — besieged by home prices, worsening traffic, high taxes and a generally more expensive cost of living — believe life would be better just about anywhere else but here.
During the 12 months ending June 30, the number of people leaving California for another state exceeded by 61,100 the number who moved here”

” state’s controller, Betty Yee, said revenues through April for the fiscal year that began July 2016 were $1.83 billion below initial estimates. Income tax in April lagged projections by about $708 million.
“This is another signal that we may be inching toward an economic downturn, and we must tailor our spending accordingly,” Yee said.”

New Jersey when controlled by democrats raised and raised taxes and were totally baffled when people moved out of the state.

Here’s the “certified” letter saying Trump has no Russian debts or investors
n lieu of disclosing his actual tax returns, Trump asked two tax attorneys, Sheri Dillon and William Nelson, of the law firm Morgan Lewis to write a letter detailing Trump’s income from Russian sources. The letter, dated to March, was given to reporters on Friday. According to the letter, Trump owes no debts to Russian persons or entities, there are no “equity investments by Russians persons or entities” in Trump-controlled properties, and Trump has no investments in Russian entities. As it happens, Morgan Lewis itself is not only the longtime tax counsels to the Trump Organization but were named Russia Law Firm of the Year in 2016.

These are truly some of the best times in political history. Hypocrazy, whining, feet stomping – and I’m talking both sides.

Obama Care proved to be what every financial advisor on the planet said it would be – failure. It’s nice as I’ve stockpiled so many “I told you so’s” 🙂 With Aetna leaving, it’s grave is fully prepped.

What many can’t understand is things are not free. Money HAS to come from somewhere. Did the framers of Obama Care actually think all the healthy and young people would front the bill for the sick and old? Excuse me… BWAHAHAHAHA! (sorry)

Next we have Comey. One second everyone on the left says he should be fired as the right has him high on their shoulders, the next second, complete reversal.

Politics have never been better! If you’ve never watched “The House of Cards”, then you should. It’s not a sitcom or drama, it’s an actual “How Washington Works” real life/time documentary lol!

Stop the hate. It will only eat you from the inside. If you want change, pick one thing and do it. Help a neighbor, help a stranger. Not with money, but with your time.

Trump has imposed a 24% tariff on imports of Canadian soft timber. In response, the premier of British Columbia has requested that Prime Minister Trudeau ban the US from using BC ports to ship coal. Coal mining was gearing up to expand in southeastern Montana, but that coal is shipped from BC ports, so if it can’t be shipped…

Heckava job, Trumpie!

‘A new book by Clinton insiders, ‘Shattered‘ reveals that the Clinton camp (primarily Podesta and Mook) devised a two-pronged plan pushing the press to cover the ‘Russian hacking’ story within 24 hours of Hillary’s crushing election loss.

The bottom line is, Hillary Clinton was a horrible candidate riddled with scandal going back decades. Trump was the ‘change candidate’ in a change election. With crushing unemployment, stifling Obamacare costs, Islamic terrorist attacks and overwhelming corruption in D.C., Americans were looking for a change and Trump was the answer.’

Kelly @14 — Thank you for reminding me of Iran. I still want to know if Ivana Trump violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act when she was working on that Trump hotel project in Baku, Azerbaijan with people who were known to launder money for the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.

19 Aspirin May 13, 2017 at 7:05 AM

Lies, upon lies, upon lies. When will the brain-dead GOP Congress take action against the pathological liar Trump?

Roughly, a pathological liar is one who actually believes his own lies. Trump probably believes that Obama had him wiretapped, and no evidence to the contrary will change that.

This is especially dangerous when a person in a position of great power is allowed to continue such behavior.

Trump is losing his base. Yes, a few nonthinkers are hanging on but the obvious numbers tell the tale.

And please don’t tell me about Obama he is no longer in office.

Let’s get a special prosecutor appointed to prosecute somebody for some crime that was supposedly committed by who knows who with some Russians who we don’t know who they are…. but they’re Russians we’re pretty sure… Anyhow, we can’t ignore this like it was some IRS scandal, or uranium mines sale complete with kickbacks and abuse of office.. no, this is much more serious than some minor election rigging (and might I say Bernie & his supporters are sure taking it well… just like Bobby Trippe).
Uh uh baby! This is of a much higher magnitude than some military mismanagement and a slaughter in Benghazi or all that lying to Congress & destruction of evidence that Hillary got away with (as if anyone will ever indict a Clinton… ha!).
No…. rest assured whatever we imagine might have happened will be pursued and embellished until we prove that somehow it requires the removal of Trump from office!

We thought the consolidation of media into the hands of Rupert Murdock was bad for democracy, well here’s another media mogul to worry about: David Smith of Sinclair Broadcasting.

“On May 8th, just 18 days after a change in federal rules made the deal possible, Sinclair Broadcast Group announced that it would buy Tribune Media in a transaction worth $6.6bn, beating out interest from others including 21st Century Fox, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch. Sinclair will become America’s dominant owner of local TV stations….

“The rule change on April 20th from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), led by Donald Trump’s appointee as chairman, Ajit Pai, was crucial…the combined Sinclair and Tribune business covers about 45% of households, which is over the current federal limit of 39%. Many believe Mr Pai will raise that cap.

“David Smith, the group’s executive chairman, is a conservative ally of Mr Trump who, critics say, puts his stations in the service of Republican causes.”

Dr. Jellyfinger @36 — West Coast US ports and communities don’t want to ship coal. That is a simple fact. On the local level, Americans are choosing health over corporate profits — coal is unhealthy.

Proposed ports for coal exports to Asia and status, as of August 2016:

Coyote Island Terminal in Morrow, Oregon – Sponsor withdraws application in November 2016
Gateway Pacific Terminal in Cherry Point, Washington – Sponsor withdraws application in February 2017
Millennium Bulk Logistics Longview Terminal in Longview, Washington – under review
Port of Coos Bay in Coos Bay, Oregon – proponents let lease agreement expire
Port of Grays Harbor in Aberdeen, Washington – RailAmerica cancelled its proposal
Port of Oakland in Oakland, California – Oakland City Council passed ban on coal handling
Port Westward in St Helens, Oregon – Kinder Morgan pulled its proposal
Ridley Terminals in Kaien Island, British Columbia – planned 5.5 Mtpa expansion by 2019
Westshore Terminals in Delta, British Columbia – planned 3 Mtpa expansion

Jojo Potato @50 — The lack of ethical/legal behavior at Wells Fargo (and the other big banks) make me wonder what a corporation has to do to lose its license to be in business. I understand the “too big to fail” argument, but maybe that just means they should not be allowed to get that big! Slapping these corporations on the wrist with a limp-noodle fine and saying, “Naughty, naughty” sure isn’t changing their behavior.

Trump is doing a fantastic job. There is zero truth to the fake news Russia conspiracy. And to the poster who said he wasn’t wire tapped….. Of coarse he wasn’t, they don’t do that anymore. He was however under surveillance and that’s a FACT, the FISA requests and them being approved, is the evidence.

You haters will soon see the TRUTH. Hillary is corrupt, and she should have been prosecuted. Anyone else that is subpoenaed, and then destroys evidence is 100% prosecuted. What she did was illegal. You know if she were a Republican, MSM would have had a melt down, and rightfully so. We know she abused her power as SOS, we know there was pay for play too. There was also a memo circulated during her tenure, reminding ALL STAFF is to use The State Dept’s server and emails. She knew damn well that she was not legally in compliance. The requirements has changed in 2009. Again, if Hillary were a Republican, MSM would be waiving that memo around 24/7, and not allowing any other narrative, except for: SHE KNEW!

I can’t wait for the TRUTH…… The TRUTH is going to send liberals into a panic/meltdown. Most should have left the Democrat plantation after what they did to Bernie, but no…. They made excuses, or just quit talking about it. What’s coming will be a huge awakening for millions of Democrats.

Who is dealing with the Russians?
How’s about John Podesta?

“Podesta’s efforts were a key part of under-the-radar lobbying during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign led mainly by veteran Democratic strategists to remove sanctions against Sberbank and VTB Capital, Russia’s second largest bank.

The two Russian banks spent more than $700,000 in 2016 on Washington lobbyists as they sought to end the U.S. sanctions, according to Senate lobbying disclosure forms and documents filed with the Department of Justice.

The Podesta Group charged Sberbank $20,000 per month, plus expenses, on a contract from March through September 2016”.

I didn’t hear any Democrats complaining about this….. wonder why?

52 Captain Bebops May 13, 2017 at 6:30 PM

42 &43 — How do you know how much Trump is worth? The public has not seen his most recent tax return, so he could just as easily be flat broke and in debt up to his bushy eyebrows (his 7th bankruptcy, or is it his 8th?).

Granted, he’s sure slapped his name on a lot of buildings, but most of them he doesn’t own; the real owners pay to use his name. At some point, perhaps the near future, that gilded name is going to lose its cachet, and then how much will Trump be worth?

‘Digital. What’s digital?’ Donald Trump tells Navy to use ‘goddamned steam’ for catapult

Donald Trump has told the US Navy to go back to “goddamned steam” to launch jets from its carriers, declaring the new digital system “no good”.
The president’s comments came as he took a tour of the yet-to-be-commissioned aircraft carrier Gerald L. Ford in Newport News, Virginia, in March. Recalling the visit in an interview with Time magazine this week, he said he was told the carrier’s new electromagnetic catapult did not have enough power. “It sounded bad to me. Digital. They have digital. What is digital? And it’s very complicated, you have to be Albert Einstein to figure it out,” Mr Trump said. http://bit.ly/2qd2SMK

several key Republicans and Democrats said Sunday that any recordings of White House conversations will need to be preserved for congressional review. “If there are any tapes of this conversation, they need to be turned over,” Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) told NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), a former federal prosecutor, said “it’s probably inevitable” that such recordings would need to be handed over to Congress and predicted that they would be subpoenaed. Asked on “Fox News Sunday” about Trump’s decision to set up a taping system, Lee called it “not necessarily the best idea.” http://wapo.st/2rfOraP

The president’s personal financial-disclosure report was extensive before he handed the torch to his sons, and listed Trump as a trustee, president, chairman, or member for more than 530 entities.
Almost half of these companies have Trump’s name as part of the company name….. but he used bankruptcy protection laws for 4 of them… What an abject failure he is!

BTW – regarding the coal issue… looks like Montana’s coal production will force the mines to use American ports (creating more jobs for US citizens) and make the creation of the proposed Millennium Bulk Terminals project a reality (creating even more jobs). The coal will be shipped to Asian ports (primarily China) so maybe all you climate change loonies should go to China & protest there.

Dr. Jellyfinger @ 86 — My original point was that Trump, by starting a trade dispute with Canada over lumber, is causing problems for coal. One of his campaign promises was that he was going to help the coal industry, but instead he’s hurting it.

By the way, where are you seeing that the Millennium Bulk Terminal project is going forward? I keep reading that local ports are rejecting coal, plus demand for coal is down, even in China.

“Even if the port gains regulatory approval, it faces other challenges.

The ground has shifted under the coal industry’s feet since Millennium initially proposed the coal port in 2011. Prices have taken a huge tumble, largely because utilities have turned to cheaper and more abundant natural gas as fuel.

Coal consumption in China, the Pacific Rim’s largest coal consumer, fell in 2016 for the third consecutive year. Chinese leaders have signaled they’re cutting back coal burning to reduce pollution, which could hurt demand from exports through Longview.” – http://billingsgazette.com/business/features/washington-state-finishes-study-of-proposed-port-for-montana-and/article_9bf98c2e-07c4-59ec-81a2-18b9b46f565d.html

The Office of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina confirmed to Circa that Mrs. Clinton called her office in March 2011 to demand that Dr. Muhammed Yunus, a 2006 Nobel Peace prize winner, be restored to his role as chairman of the country’s most famous microcredit bank, Grameen Bank. The bank’s nonprofit Grameen America, which Yunus chairs, has given between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Clinton Global Initiative. Grameen Research, which is chaired by Yunus, has donated between $25,000 and $50,000, according to the Clinton Foundation website.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is behind the idea of Judge Merrick Garland, whose Supreme Court nomination McConnell squashed, becoming the next FBI director, a former adviser to the Kentucky senator said Sunday. “I think the senate majority leader thinks that’s a fantastic idea,” former adviser Josh Holmes, who now runs the strategy firm Cavalry LLC, told “Fox News Sunday.” “He certainly thinks (Garland) will be qualified. And (McConnell) certainly thinks he would be somebody that he could support.” Garland was former President Barack Obama’s nominee to replace conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in 2016.

However, McConnell infuriated Democrats by declining to hold Senate confirmation hearings on Garland, saying the next president should have that choice. http://fxn.ws/2qha5gm

Proposition 13 protects people who have owned property, paid property taxes, and lived in California since the late 1970s, some dating to the 1930s … , and their heirs, … the people who built the freeways … and the houses … the ones who conserved the land that is California’s park system .. the ones who owned businessrs and worked to make the State the desirable place it is. They have been paying the longest into the system to make it the place you want to live. Prior to Prop13, counties could raise yearly property taxes by whatever rate they desired, and the assessed value of the property was obscurely determined. Prop 13 put the brakes on the arbitrary way taxes were determined, and limited the way these taxes were imposed. If Prop 13 were not in effect, I would venture to say that very few people would be able to afford to live in California because the property taxes would be so prohibitive. Through attrition, the number of homes with lower property taxes because of Prop 13 protection will diminish as the owners age and die, or move away. However, the protections Prop 13 provided will continue to protect new buyers for years to come. Local jurisdictions have attemped to bypass Prop 13 by imposing special assessments to the yearly property taxes which is, in my opinion unconscionable, and I believe it will ultimately only prove to be their undoing.

How Trump gets his fake news
The president rarely surfs the web on his own, but his staff have made a habit of slipping news stories on to his desk—including the occasional internet hoax. “Trump quickly got lathered up about the media’s hypocrisy. But there was a problem. The 1970s cover was fake, part of an internet hoax that circulated for years. Staff chased down the truth and intervened before Trump tweeted or talked publicly about it. The episode illustrates the impossible mission of managing a White House led by an impetuous president who has resisted structure and strictures his entire adult life.
When Trump bellows about this or that story, his aides often scramble in a game of cat-and-mouse to figure out who alerted the president to the piece in the first place given that he rarely browses the internet on his own. Some in the White House describe getting angry calls from the president and then hustling over to Trump’s personal secretary, Madeleine Westerhout, to ferret who exactly had just paid a visit to the Oval Office and possibly set Trump off. Priebus and White House staff secretary Rob Porter have tried to implement a system to manage and document the paperwork Trump receives. While some see the new structure as a power play by a weakened chief of staff — “He’d like to get a phone log too,” cracked one senior White House adviser — others are more concerned about the unfettered ability of Trump’s family-member advisers, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, to ply the president with whatever paperwork they want in the residence sight unseen. http://politi.co/2qjFIWH

The information Trump relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said.

“I think we can do with a little less drama from the White House on a lot of things so that we can focus on our agenda,” McConnell told Bloomberg news, not directly responding to the latest controversy flowing out of the executive branch.

“Drama” is what Trump is all about, to those who have been paying attention to the circus at the White House.

Trump’s broken promises and lies have given us fodder for wonderful tales to tell our grandchildren and plot ideas for future political dramas.

I found this to be a fascinating and very enlightening article on the manipulation of our “news”, and ourselves;
Robert Mercer: the big data billionaire waging war on mainstream media
With links to Donald Trump, Steve Bannon and Nigel Farage, the right wing US computer scientist is at the heart of a multi million-dollar propaganda network; Just over a week ago, Donald Trump gathered members of the world’s press before him and told them they were liars. “The press, honestly, is out of control,” he said. “The public doesn’t believe you any more.” CNN was described as “very fake news… story after story is bad”. The BBC was “another beauty”. That night I did two things. First, I typed “Trump” in the search box of Twitter. My feed was reporting that he was crazy, a lunatic, a raving madman. But that wasn’t how it was playing out elsewhere. The results produced a stream of “Go Donald!!!!”, and “You show ’em!!!” There were star-spangled banner emojis and thumbs-up emojis and clips of Trump laying into the “FAKE news MSM liars!” Trump had spoken, and his audience had heard him. Then I did what I’ve been doing for two and a half months now. I Googled “mainstream media is…” And there it was. Google’s autocomplete suggestions: “mainstream media is… dead, dying, fake news, fake, finished”. Is it dead, I wonder? Has FAKE news won? Are we now the FAKE news? Is the mainstream media – we, us, I – dying? (read more: http://bit.ly/2lcD3Is)

For some reason I am politically aligned with the latter. While I can understand Republicans’ need for order and conservatism I feel that the progressive’s irreverent mindset is often helpful in solving problems by being able to “think outside the box”.

Here’s how Roger Stone might be setting up Trump’s legal defense with Alzheimer’s denials;
Longtime Trump pal Roger Stone is accusing the president’s enemies of making up claims about Alzheimer’s disease — but “Young Turk” Cenk Uygur thinks that’s a ploy intended as a legal defense. Whispers about Trump’s possible mental decline or cognitive impairment have been growing louder, and a viral video claims to show evidence the president is suffering from the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Sources say White House staff members are beginning to talk openly about their increasing concerns that Trump shows signs of early dementia. Stone denounced those claims in a video discussion with InfoWars founder Alex Jones, but Uygur thinks he’s building a legal defense for the president. “They are going to claim that Donald Trump has Alzheimer’s,” Stone says in the video, “and that is the source of his insanity.” Uygur said Stone — who is under investigation for his alleged ties to Russia — had actually brought those online rumors into the political mainstream with his denial. “I’m paying attention very, very carefully, and I had not seen Alzheimer’s until Roger Stone said it,” Uygur said. He described the tactic by the notorious political dirty trickster as a “classic Roger Stone move,” because the idea that “Trump is losing his mind” could be used to explain his actions with Russia. “They have begun to set up his legal defense,” Uygur said. http://bit.ly/2pLxo3t

For those still fawning over obama the wonderful obama was first president since President Hoover to not have 3% or more GDP (gross domestic product) obama’s best average growth in a single calendar year was is 2.6 percent in 2015.

Yesterday 16 May Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta revised their Q2 real GDP growth forecast upward from 3.6 to 4.1 percent. That news signaled to stock market another Fed rate hike probably at their June meeting and caused sell off we are now seeing..
Far more troubling are indicator levels for personal debt and lack of personal savings which have surpassed 2007 pre-recession levels. More proof of the lack of education in economics and history plaguing this selfish me first generation.

Federal Reserve historically has been behind the curve in setting monetary policy. Greenspan’s policies coupled with paid off career politicians destroying regulations, instituted after stock market crash early last Century, for benefit of their campaign contributors caused havoc.

@Hmm, nice try. The Atlanta nowcast for Q1 started out at 2.5 percent, raised it to just under 3.5 percent, and then finished at just 0.2 percent. The official US Department of Commerce BEA number for Q1 was 0.7 percent growth. The same kind of wild ride will likely be the case for Q2.

The current nowcast estimate for Q2 by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York dated May 12 is at 1.9 percent. Note that both nowcasts are merely computer projections and neither forecasts are official forecasts of the Federal Reserve System.

As for the market drop today (down 306 for the Dow as of this writing), it is most likely due to the uncertainty created by the Trump chaos.

This disregard for the choice of America’s voter’s only confirms the disdain the left has for the Constitution of the USA and a government chosen of the people, by the people and for the people…. more of the same reason they lost so badly in 2016.

Michael Flynn blocked military move against ISIS that Turkey opposed BEFORE he disclosed he was a paid agent

Days before President Donald Trump took office, incoming National Security Adviser Michael Flynn blocked a military plan against the Islamic State group that was opposed by Turkey, a country he had been paid more than $500,000 to advocate for, the McClatchy news service reported.
According to the report, Flynn declined a request from the Obama administration to approve an operation in the IS stronghold of Raqqa, effectively delaying the military operation. His reasoning wasn’t reported, but Turkey has long opposed U.S. military operations in cooperation with Kurdish forces. At the time, Flynn had not yet registered as a foreign agent and disclosed that he had been paid to lobby on behalf of the Turkish government. http://dailym.ai/2ruEFSf

Resist a POTUS bringing back industry, which provides jobs and in turn builds American Pride. (not to mention income tax payers more likely to vote Red).

Keep the next generation buying Audi and Toyota, keep them unemployed AKA dependent on their handouts as they resist buying American.

@ Silva 195 ~ That sounds like a pretty good reason to fire Flynn… if that indeed was the reason he opposed the operation. Prove it & prosecute him then. It won’t matter to us, Trump already fired him…. but you go ahead & keep beating that dead horse (everyone needs a hobby).
Just look at Pelosi & Schumer, they are keeping busy playing Rocky & Bullwinkle hunting down Boris Badenoff for “hacking” (?) the 2016 election … by exposing the truth about DNC lies and cheating to prove Hillary should have won? or something…

@195 Silva

Where exactly did Michael Flynn disclose he was a “paid agent.” I don’t recall him saying that. “Paid agent” infers he was a doublw agent or mole for the Russians. I think that’s a stretch. He did business with them … that’s all.

House majority leader to colleagues in 2016: ‘I think Putin pays’ Trump

KIEV, Ukraine — A month before Donald Trump clinched the Republican nomination, one of his closest allies in Congress — House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy — made a politically explosive assertion in a private conversation on Capitol Hill with his fellow GOP leaders: that Trump could be the beneficiary of payments from Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016, exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia. House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy’s assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy.

What a grown up President might say;
“I welcome this special counsel to this investigation. Understand, I don’t feel as though I’m guilty of anything they are claiming. However, it’s of the utmost importance to our democracy that this process take place so that the people of this great country can feel confident in its findings and that the people have the fullest confidence in those that they have elected to lead it. I hope a conclusion will be found swiftly, so we and the American people can get back to the business of making America great again.”

This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!

@ Silva 202 ~ Rohrabacher was making a joke! They were laughing it up! One report says they have the conversation taped and even a writtten transcript that makes it obvious they were laughing it up!
Still ….. the Washington Post well aware of this, printed the article out of context, purposely, to grab a headline!
You people are just too gullible!

Also, The FBI was closing the case, no evidence of any crime,,, so the only way to keep the “Russia Collaboration” narrative alive was to get a “Special Counsel” (not a Special Prosecutor, since no crime has been committed, it is merely suspicion with NO evidence of any crimes or improprieties so NO PROSECUTOR).
Dem’s know it’s a fairy tale… they just want to keep the cloud of suspicion alive…. it’s all they’ve got…. pathetic.

@191 “The goal of socialism is communism.” —Vladimir Lenin. Thanks for that quote! I just $hat my pants! Can’t wait to show that quote to my socialist-leaning friends. Many say they hate Communism, but Socialism is the best alternative to Capitalism. I say F__k that!

Why is it, every US immigrant (that I have talked to anyways) who came from a Socialist country, really hates socialism, and at any given opportunity, rants about how much it sucked having to wait in line for milk, food, and $hitty medical care? No guarantees they get anything!

No economic system is perfect. Perfection is nearly impossible! A certain degree of corruption in any country is to be expected. I’d rather tolerate some corruption in a Free-Country regulated by an iron-clad Constitution, than to have less personal freedom (disguised by fairness across the board) and still have corruption, but without recourse.

Social media users roasted Ivanka Trump Wednesday after it appeared that even her staffers don’t know what the First Daughter’s role in the White House is. Ivanka tweeted a photo of a human trafficking event that she hosted with the message: “Human trafficking is a pervasive humanitarian epidemic both domestically and abroad. Together we are working to combat this critical issue.” Then, one sharp-eyed Twitter user pointed out that, unlike others around the table, Ivanka’s name tent did not have a title, saying: “The White House staffer in charge of printing out these things doesn’t know what Ivanka does either.” http://dailym.ai/2rmUk95

Why is she leading the meeting? She has probably never thought about human trafficking before a few short weeks ago, at the first meeting. How weird the other (elected) people must feel partaking in the little charade! Heads would roll if Chelsea of the Obama girls would have presumed to lead or participate in a White House meeting.

President Donald Trump told Russia’s ambassador and foreign minister last week that James Comey, the ousted FBI director, was ‘a real nut job’ whose departure would make life easier for him. The May 10 Oval Office meeting with Sergey Lavrov and Sergei Kislyak was summarized in notes that White House aides circulated internally afterward. One official read sections of it to a New York Times reporter, leaving press secretary Sean Spicer flummoxed as he left town on Trump’s first overseas voyage as president.
‘I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,’ Trump said, according to the summary. ‘I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.’ Trump also assured the Russian envoys: ‘I’m not under investigation.’ http://dailym.ai/2qzVbSI

229 Silva May 19, 2017 at 2:38 PM

Why you should be paying attention to what happened at the Turkish ambassador’s house this week
On Tuesday afternoon, President Donald Trump and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan huddled at the White House — and then gave a joint press conference. Within hours, Erdogan was at the Turkish ambassador’s home in upper Northwest Washington, watching as his personal guards participated in a bloody and violent clash with protesters gathered on the street outside the residence. In the video above, Erdogan can be seen watching the clash — in which nine people were hospitalized — before heading into the ambassador’s home. Even before those protests turned violent, there was considerable unhappiness within the Turkish community regarding Trump’s willingness to offer Erdogan an official White House visit. Human rights watchers have criticized the increasingly repressive nature of Erdogan’s regime, particularly in the wake of an April referendum that will greatly increase the president’s power. Trump made no mention of those tensions on Tuesday. “It is a pleasure to welcome President Erdogan for his first visit to the White House in years,” he said. “The American and Turkish peoples have been friends and allies for many, many decades.” But in the wake of the bloody clash on Thursday (of which there is some evidence Erdogan may have been personally involved in), the White House has said nothing publicly. http://read.bi/2r19O2G
