Two weeks before she was fired, Kirstjen Nielsen told President Donald Trump "no."
Nielsen, at the time the head of the Department of Homeland Security, resisted Trump's order to close the US border with Mexico in El Paso; by telling Trump the move would be "a bad and even dangerous idea, and that the governor of Texas, Republican Greg Abbott, has been very supportive of the President," reported CNN's Jake Tapper on Monday.

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: "When the President would say, 'Here's what I want to do and here's how I want to do it.' And I'd have to say to him, 'Well Mr. President, I understand what you want to do, but you can't do it that way. It violates the law. It violates treaty.'"

Former FBI Director James Comey: "'I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting [former national security adviser Michael] Flynn go,'" Comey said Trump told him in a one-on-one meeting at the White House in 2017. "'He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.'" Comey recounted that he told Trump only that Flynn "is a good guy" but made no promise to end the FBI investigation.

Former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis: Trump wanted Mattis to execute the withdrawal of troops from Syria. Mattis refused -- and resigned. Trump later agreed to leave 400 US troops in Syria.

Your right, you claimed he 'changed the rules'
And if your not talking about policy then you must have been referring to rule of law.
Or were you still arguing policy like the rest of your post?

>We can collect clear and accurate stats on the percentage of crime committed by people in this country with no documentation, that are know to regularly avoid police as they are by definition criminals for entering the country illegally.

>It is also fine, and not compromising of said statistics to also group in all of the people that come into the country legally with other said group in order to paint them as one.

Yeah, nice "statistics"
You have yet to prove him wrong, and are just making excuses for Trump in his cruel and inhuman policies.
So is your factless opinion
No, that includes illegals.

The reason we have these statistics on crime is because the people who commit them get caught. Criminals tend to avoid the police, illegal or not.

Well, women are nation wreckers after all.

Just look at the Roman empire, they were smart enough not to let women hold political office.
Then why did a bunch of men continually ruin it?
They literally could not stop murdering, assassinating, or ruining the people that were either fixing the empire or maintaining it


This is not a coincidence. The shares on the articles about the leak have pathetic share counts. This is exactly what they wanted. It’s time to turn things around people. Anyone realize mainstream media isn’t picking it up. Only a few here and there.
> This is not a coincidence
No, it's not. It's called burying the news. It's been going on since there WAS news services.

The government does the same thing. Bad news? Release it on Friday afternoon at 4pm. It'll get canned until Monday.

Besides, why are you so worried about Instagram passwords? Do you think the Russians are desperate to get their hands on billions of cat photos and pictures of what you had for lunch?

>South Carolina fifth-grader Raniya Wright -- the student who died last month after a fight at her Elementary school -- died of natural causes, and there's no evidence the fight contributed to her death, prosecutor Duffie Stone said Friday.

>"There will be no criminal charges brought," he said.
Gee I wound what skin color the other kid was?

>Raniya, 10, died of a blood-vessel rupture in the brain related to a birth defect -- an "arteriovenous malformation" -- that could have taken place "just about any time," and the "fight did not have anything to do with her passing away," Stone said.
Genetically defective, well that explains everything.

>She was involved in a "five- to 10-second slap fight" with another student in a classroom at Forest Hills Elementary in Walterboro on March 25, and a teacher separated them, Colleton County Sheriff R.A. Strickland said Friday. Raniya had no sign of and spoke of no injury, but complained of a headache about 10 minutes later at the principal's office, he said.
Complaints about a headache do not qualify as a 5th grade "spoke of no injury." Nothing to see here folks. How could we have know?

nearly 70% of all Americans received a tax cut for 2018. only around half of those people actually believe they paid less in taxes.


>To a large degree, the gap between perception and reality on the tax cuts appears to flow from a sustained — and misleading — effort by liberal opponents of the law to brand it as a broad middle-class tax increase.

>That effort began in the fall of 2017, when Republicans prepared to introduce legislation that models by the independent Tax Policy Center predicted could raise taxes on nearly a third of middle-class taxpayers. It continued through Mr. Trump’s signing of the law, even though the group’s models showed that the revised bill would raise taxes on relatively few in the middle class in the 2018 tax year.

>After the law went into effect, Democrats played down those estimates and instead highlighted projections that most Americans’ taxes are set to increase in 2026, after the individual tax cuts in the law are scheduled to expire.

>The messaging stuck. In December 2017, polling for The Times by SurveyMonkey showed that nearly two-thirds of Americans — and three-quarters of Democrats — did not believe they would get a tax cut from the new law. In this month’s poll, three-quarters of Democrats again said they did not think they got a tax cut from the law, and the overall share of Americans who said they had benefited rose only slightly from the 2017 expectations.

>In convincing people that they would not benefit, “the Democrats did a very good job,” said Howard Gleckman, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center. “They were able to put that into the public perception, and the reality has been unable to break that perception.”

A 40-year-old man is suing his parents for destroying his pornography collection, which was so large it filled a dozen moving boxes.
His parents discovered the materials after he was removed from their home for unspecified reasons.
He is seeking a $90,000 compensatory award in federal court.

A 40-year-old Indiana man is suing his parents in federal court for destroying his gargantuan collection of pornography, the value of which he placed at $30,000.

In the interest of privacy, The Daily Caller News Foundation has chosen not to publish the lawsuit itself, or identify those involved.

“We counted twelve moving boxes full of pornography plus two boxes of sex toys as you call them,” the defendant wrote in a January 2018 email to his son, the plaintiff. “We began that day the process of destroying them and it took quite a while to do so.”

From volume 1, page 29 of the report:

>The IRA operated individualized Twitter accounts similar to the operation of its Facebook accounts, by continuously posting original content to the accounts while also communicating with U.S. Twitter users directly (through public tweeting or Twitter's private messaging).

>The IRA used many of these accounts to attempt to influence U.S. audiences on the
election. Individualized accounts used to influence the U.S. presidential election included @TEN_ GOP ( described above); @jenn _ abrams ( claiming to be a Virginian Trump supporter with 70,000 followers); @Pamela_Moore13 (claiming to be a Texan Trump supporter with 70,000 followers); and @America:__Ist_ (an anti-immigration persona with 24,000 followers).

The following is footnote 67 of volume 1, which can be found on page 29:

>Other individualized accounts included @MissouriNewsUS (an account with 3,800 followers that posted pro-Sanders and anti-Clinton material).

The Internet Research Agency (IRA) is a Russian entity based in Saint Petersburg and funded by Concord that engaged in an "active measures" social media campaign to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

My t.rumpster baby bingo card better have “shifting the goal posts” because it’s literally the only argument these retards can squeeze out of their brain cell
>Hillary is a hardcore liberal
Holy fucking shit I needed that laugh today.
if every republican were david frum then maybe every democrat could be obama and we would on balance approach some sort of sustainable policy in all areas of governance.

But the Republican party always ends up supporting hard conservative policy, even when they themselves freely admit it's unreasonable, simply on the assumption that Democrats act as a force to bring policy to a more sensible place anyway.

We're always going to end up with solidly right-wing governments if we don't have a party that earnestly represents the left on matters of economic policy. In our two party system, Democrats can't represent the center while Republicans represent the right.

We need candidates to offer people real policy choices. A vote for Bernie Sanders doesn't mean we will have a sensible healthcare system tomorrow or that private defense contractors will instantly stop being granted audit-free and infinite cost-overruns. But with a sustained effort we can force something definitively better for once, and it can stop feeling like the working class is hopeless to influence economic outcomes in the country.
Nobody is doing better than USA. USA has the the money to steamroll it's problems away. They have it so good, that the only thing they complain about is matters of culture.

And Healthcare. That one is a serious issue.
yeah, thats what it concluded at the bottom on the page.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took direct aim at China and Russia on the first leg of a four-country trip to South America on Friday, saying the two countries’ military and economic influence in the region was abetting authoritarian leaders and spreading corruption.

Chile, a longtime U.S. ally and pointed critic of the Maduro regime, has stood strongly with U.S. efforts against Venezuela. But analysts have warned that as the humanitarian crisis worsens, millions more Venezuelan refugees could flood into neighboring countries and sow divisions among U.S. and Latin American allies.

The United States opposes any dialogue with the Maduro regime to find a way out of the crisis and has tried to enforce that line among members of the Lima Group regional bloc addressing the situation. Chilean Foreign Minister Roberto Ampuero has hinted that as the crisis deepens, he could be more open to alternative outreach efforts but maintained the importance of consistency within the Lima Group.

“This group was created in order to seek a solution to this profound crisis,” Ampuero said at a news conference with Pompeo. “At the same time, we as a country need to play a role of diplomatic bridge and thus explore all the spaces of convergence with other players.”

Analysts said it could become more difficult for the United States to maintain unity among South American countries.

For the seventh time in the last couple of years, a Chinese person has been arrested for trying to drop a handful of metal coins into an airplane engine, for good luck.

On Monday morning a 66-year-old woman surnamed Wang was detained for attempting to throw six metal coins into the engine of a Tianjin Airlines plane just before take-off, in an effort to guarantee a safe trip. Fortunately, the coins ended up on the ground instead of into the multi-million dollar engine, and were noticed by an airport worker before the plane’s departure. When an announcement was made, asking whoever threw the coins to come forward, Wang refused to take responsibility, but she soon identified using surveillance footage.

The superstitious woman was detained on the airport of Inner Mongolian capital Hohhot, and placed under administrative detention for 10 days. The other passengers had to be moved to another plane and their flight to the city of Chifeng was delayed by two hours.

The incident comes just a month after a 31-year-old man was detained for trying to drop coins into the engine of a Hainan Airlines plane, to ensure a safe flight for him and his family. He was spotted dropping three small coins through the narrow gap between the jet bridge and the plane. Luckily, he missed his mark, but his attempt still landed him in jail for 10 days. In January, Chinese media reported that two women in their 20’s were arrested Jinan Yaoqiang International Airport in Shandong province, for the exact same thing.

Shangha.ist reports that at least seven cases of people trying to throw metal coins into airplane engines for good luck have already been recorded this year.

HEY SHLOMO! HERE SOME NICE INFO FROM SUPRUN, the fucking american health care minister of Ukraine, who literally destroyed ukrainian vaccination system and banned all russian vaccines against measles from Ukraine.

New York Declares Measles Emergency, Requiring Vaccinations in Parts of Brooklyn


Scientists Thought They Had Measles Cornered. They Were Wrong.

Following intensive vaccination efforts, measles cases plunged across the world. Now clusters of new infections — some linked, some not — have confounded health officials.

The measles outbreak that led to a state of emergency in New York’s Rockland County began far away: in an annual Hasidic pilgrimage from Israel to Ukraine.

Israel’s measles outbreak began in March 2018, apparently in a small Orthodox community in Tzfat, in the north, said Dr. Patrick M. O’Connor, leader of the rapid disease control team at the W.H.O.’s European office, which oversees Israel.

>A team led by experts from the University of the Philippines discovered what some believe is the greatest Philippine contribution to human evolution so far — the Homo Luzonensis.

Scientists have identified a new human ancestor species previously unknown to science: Meet Homo luzonensis.

Standing an estimated three to four feet tall, Homo luzonensis—classified as a separate species on the basis of 13 bones and teeth from two adults and one child found in a cave on the island of Luzon in the Philippines—adds another twist to the increasingly complex timeline of human evolution. Some 50,000 to 67,000 years ago, the diminutive hominin roamed Earth alongside a host of other early humans, including Neanderthals, Denisovans, similarly petite Homo floresiensis, and our own species, Homo sapiens.
