Trump reaches deal with Boeing for two new Air Force One planes

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 09:33 AM PST

Finalizing negotiations that began prior to his taking office, President Donald Trump has reached an "informal" deal with Boeing for the production of two new Air Force One planes.

"President Trump has reached an informal deal with Boeing on a fixed price contract for the new Air Force One Program,” Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley said Tuesday. “Thanks to the president's negotiations, the contract will save the taxpayers more than $1.4 billion."

The new Air Force One planes and related expenses will cost $3.9 billion, which represents $1.4 billion in savings from previous estimates of over $5 billion, Fox News reported. The planes will replace the aging Reagan-era aircraft currently in use.

A Boeing official said that two overhauled 747 airliners will be produced under the agreement, which will include "things unique to Air Force One, such as a communications suite, internal and external stairs, large galleys and other equipment."

A statement released by the company read, "Boeing is proud to build the next generation of Air Force One, providing American presidents with a flying White House at outstanding value to taxpayers. President Trump negotiated a good deal on behalf of the American people."

Trump has been brokering a new deal for the Air Force One planes since the presidential transition period in late 2016, during which he lamented that the proposed costs were “out of control” and threatened to cancel the order with Boeing.

"I think Boeing is doing a little bit of a number,” Trump said in December. “We want Boeing to make a lot of money, but not that much money."

According to a report last week in Defense One, Trump met with Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg at the White House for the final negotiations of the airplane deal.

‘The View’ host tries to link Republicans to Nazis (video)

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 09:15 AM PST

During Monday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View,” co-host Joy Behar condemned the 2018 Conservative Political Action Conference which took place last week in Maryland, saying Republicans have a “penchant for Nazis.”

“There’s this penchant for Nazis now, you know with Charlottesville and the neos, and they’re good guys on both sides, and now Marine Le Pen,” Behar said, referring to CPAC’s invitation to the far-right French politician.

“It’s like a lot of the people in the Republican party that I remember,” Behar said. “Bill Buckley, who fought in World War II, Bill Kristol — those people who are so anti-Nazi are appalled by what’s going on right now within this party.”

Co-host Meghan McCain responded, saying that she could not defend a lot of what was said at CPAC and contending that conservative women have been placed in “indefensible” positions. McCain also noted that she had tweeted CPAC chairman Matt Schlapp to lament the “booing” of her father, Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, at the conference.

“Given what my family is going through right now and what my father has given to this country I would expect better from both you and the crowd, Matt. But please, continue making excuses for the inexcusable,” McCain tweeted on Saturday.

Critics have taken issue with some of the speakers at CPAC and remarks that were made at the conference, The Hill reported.

Ian Walters, CPAC communications director was condemned for saying, “We elected Mike Steele as chairman because he was a black guy, that was the wrong thing to do,” referring to Michael Steele, former chairman of the Republican National Committee.

In response, Steele claimed that the comment illustrates the tense relationship with race within the Republican party.

“It's the groupthink that has emerged within the party that has now poisoned the national dialogue,” Steele said on “Steele & Unger,” his radio show on SiriusXM.

Trump announces campaign manager for 2020 re-election campaign

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 09:01 AM PST

President Trump filed the necessary paperwork to launch his re-election committee on Jan. 20, 2017 – the same day as his inauguration – leaving little doubt of his intentions to run for re-election in 2020.

Tuesday morning, the announcement was made that the president has already chosen his campaign manager for his 2020 re-election bid: Brad Parscale, who previously worked for the Trump Organization and was Trump’s top digital operations adviser during his 2016 campaign.

The Trump campaign released the following statement from Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel: "President Trump is delivering on his promises for a stronger more prosperous country. … We're committed to continuing this fight for our country by President Trump's side and I'm thrilled Brad will help lead the effort.”

The Associated Press reported:

Parscale, an Austin-based digital consultant and ally of Trump son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, ran the Trump campaign's digital operations in 2016, which included sophisticated social media targeting. He previously worked for the Trump Organization.

In an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes" last year, Parscale described how a team that grew to 100 people created 50,000 to 60,000 ads on Facebook daily to reach different swaths of Trump supporters to maximize support and online donations.

In a statement, Eric Trump, the president's middle son who has taken on a large role in the campaign, said, Parscale "has our family's complete trust and is the perfect person to be at the helm of the campaign."

NBC’s Andrea Mitchell posted a statement on Twitter, dramatically announcing that Parscale is “VERY close to Jared Kushner and the rest of the Trump family.”

Jennifer Lawrence slams Dem celebrities for diving into politics

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 08:37 AM PST

While contending that it is “not wise” for celebrities to talk about politics, outspoken mega-star Jennifer Lawrence said it was "disgusting" how the Democrats attacked supporters of President Donald Trump.

In an interview published in the March issue of Vanity Fair, Lawrence said, "The Democrats made a huge mistake by chastising the Trump supporters, and that was disgusting to me."

 

"Of course they're not going to vote for Hillary Clinton; they're going to vote for Donald Trump. You laughed at them when their plight is very real," said Lawrence, who supported Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.

According to Lawrence, Trump was "a big powerful man in a nice suit, pointing at you and going, 'I'm going to make you rich.' It's so appealing."

Despite her remarks, the Oscar-winning actress said, “I’ve always thought that it was a good idea to stay out of politics."

"Twenty-five percent of America identifies as liberal and I need more than 25 percent of America to go see my movies. It's not wise, career-speaking, to talk about politics," Lawrence contended, adding, “When Donald Trump got sworn into office, that f—–g changed.”

In 2015, Lawrence warned about the possible election of Trump, saying, "If Donald Trump becomes president that will be the end of the world," Fox News reported.

According to Lawrence, the hurricanes that devastated Texas and Florida in 2016 were signs of "Mother Nature's rage and wrath" at the U.S. for electing Trump, and retribution for people not believing in manmade climate change.

"You know, you're watching these hurricanes now, and it's really hard, especially while promoting this movie, not to feel Mother Nature's rage and wrath,” she said in September.

In the Vanity Fair interview, Lawrence said that her family “hates” when she talks about politics.

"My family obviously hates every time I talk about politics because it's hard to see your kid get criticized and they live in Kentucky, where nobody is really liking what I'm saying," she said.

Irish government paid media to promote mass Muslim migration plan

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 07:55 AM PST

The Irish government has been criticized for paying journalists to write positive stories about Project Ireland 2040, an initiative that will cost €116 billion and is intended to increase Ireland’s 4.7 million population by a million via mass migration.

Upon introducing Project Ireland 2040 last week, the Irish government’s strategic communications unit paid for sponsored "news pieces" to appear in national and regional newspapers, which "could not include negative or critical content," The Times reported on Friday.

Speaking in the Irish parliament, opposition leader Micheál Martin branded the government's manipulation of the media to promote the program "ethically dubious."

Project Ireland 2040 has been widely condemned as a "pyramid scheme" aimed at enriching investors by adding consumers at the expense of taxpayers, and as a globalist program to "replace" the native population.

The government has also been criticized for plans to open a center to accommodate 115 asylum seekers in a heritage town that hosts one of Ireland's oldest traditional festivals. More than 100 concerned locals attended a public meeting to discuss the plans, many of whom argued that the town of only 300 residents lacks the services needed to handle so many new arrivals.

Opposition to mass migration from third world countries has been fueled recently by reports that gangs of teenage migrants from Africa have been terrorizing locals in Dublin.

According to police, the criminal youths are "wreaking havoc" throughout the city, perpetrating offenses that “[range] from shouting and intimidating old people in large groups to assaulting and robbing people of all ages, often with deadly weapons such as large knives.”

A source told the Irish Sun, "It's not just vulnerable OAPs suffering here, innocent kids are afraid to go out and play. Gardai had to respond to one incident in Swords where a 14 year-old boy was stripped down to his pants at knife point on the street just so they could rob him and ridicule him at the same time, that's what you're dealing with here."

Politician Jack Chambers said that the threat of the African gangs is a "major problem" that has left many of his constituents "living in fear" and "scared to leave their homes".

Independent Councillor Tony Murphy attributed the gang members' antisocial attitudes to "cultural differences" and claimed that police risk causing "a mini riot" any time they attempt to arrest an the offender.

Jihad Watch reacted to the news, contending, “These suicidal immigration policies are, of course, being implemented not just in Ireland but in the EU (and the UK). The fallacious belief is that the swarm of migrants from the Middle East and Africa will somehow fill Europe's population deficit that stems from the low birth rates of the native populations. The utopian belief is that — despite all disastrous evidence to the contrary — Muslim migrants will assimilate, find jobs and become responsible citizens who will start paying taxes to finance their new countries' leftist dependence on social welfare.”

REPORT: US taxpayers pay $18.5B for illegal alien healthcare

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 07:24 AM PST

Taxpayers in America are paying $18.5 billion to cross-subsidize healthcare for illegal aliens. In 2016, federal taxpayers provided $11.2 billion in subsidized care to illegal aliens, with other funding coming from state and local taxpayers, cost-shifting, tax exemptions and tax expenditures.

According to Forbes, current federal policy prohibits federal tax funding of healthcare for illegal aliens through Medicaid or the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare. Despite the prohibition, the nation’s estimated 3.9 million uninsured illegal aliens receive healthcare through other channels.

Approximately $4.6 billion in health services for illegal aliens are funded by federal taxes, with an additional $2.8 billion in healthcare financed by state and local taxpayers. “Cost-shifting” accounts for another $3 billion, and occurs when insured patients are charged more by hospitals to cover uncompensated care losses.

Cost-shifting is necessary since hospitals are required to abide by the Emergency Treatment and Labor Act, a federal law that obligates them to treat patients with emergencies regardless of their ability to pay.

Forbes contributor Chris Conover contended, “If the federal government eliminated whatever payments it now makes for undocumented immigrants, hospitals hypothetically would not respond by increasing charges to recover part of their increased uncompensated care costs, but instead make adjustments in the form of either spending less on other things or taking steps to discourage undocumented immigrants from showing up at their doors.”

Physician charity care for illegal aliens is estimated to cost $1.5 billion, representing an average of $1,750 for each of the country’s 855,000 active physicians, who receive no tax write off for charitable contributions.

Illegal aliens are also the beneficiaries of at least $0.9 billion in implicit federal subsidies attributable to the tax exemption for nonprofit hospitals and an additional $5.7 billion in tax expenditures from the employer tax exclusion.

Since an estimated 3.9 million illegal aliens are uninsured, approximately 7.7 million have some sort of coverage for their healthcare costs. There is insufficient data regarding such coverage. Larry Levitt of the Kaiser Family Foundation said that "some are buying non-group, but I'd agree that it's primarily employer coverage."

Conover wrote, “Assuming that 86 percent have employer-provided coverage (which is the identical percentage among all non-elderly adults having private coverage in 2016: Table HIC-2), this would equal 6.6 million undocumented workers with such coverage.”

Most members of Congress have never visited the border, or gone to a job fair to see Americans applying for jobs that are often given to illegals.  In 2013, DML and his fan base sent copies of his films They Come to America I and II to members of Congress. It helped stopped the Gang of 8 bill from granting amnesty.   It’s time to do it again, now that Trump is talking about amnesty.

Brian Kilmeade of Fox & Friends said They Come to America: The Cost of Illegal Immigration was Oscar worthy.  Problem was, Hollywood would not give the film a chance because it put an American face on the problem of illegal immigration.

Sean Hannity dedicated an entire hour program to They Come to America II: The Cost of Amnesty.  Hannity said, “Such an important film when America’s security is at stake.”

They Come to America III: The Cost of Obama’s Legacy was “the best film about illegal immigration ever made”,  claims broadcasting legend, John Roland.

Governor Mike Huckabee dedicated an unprecedented two segments of his TV program to highlight DML’s work along the borders, stating it was the best set of documentaries he had ever seen regarding border security.

When DML walked off the set of Huckabee, he was greeted by actor Jon Voight.  “I am so impressed Mr. Lynch,” said the Hollywood icon.

DML is currently producing They Come to America 4: The Cost of Open Borders.  He says it will be the most important film he’s made on the topic of immigration.  It is expected to be complete spring 2018.

“It is so important for people to see the first three films, that I am going to give away DVDs for free,” said DML during a recent interview.  DML will instruct his supporters on Monday during the Truth to send the free copy to the White House in an attempt to open the president’s eyes. 

They Come to America I, II, and III are now available on DVD.  The three films are packed together in one DVD case called the “TRILOGY.”  Shipping of the TRILOGY begins March 15.  If you pre-order now, you will receive a FREE TRILOGY set to send to the White House.

DML has two more films also available on DVD.  ‘We Ride to DC’ and ‘A Day at Bundy’s.’  If you pre-order the TRILOGY, you can pick up both films for just $5 each.

If you order today, Monday, February 26, DML will include a personal, hand-written thank you note.

Again, if you order the TRILOGY now, you get a FREE TRILOGY to send to the White House.  The price is just $45.  That’s 6 DVDs for just $45.

If you want to tack on We Ride to DC and A Day at Bundy’s, the total cost is just $55. Every order made today comes with a personalized thank you note from DML.

The FREE TRILOGY offer will end on March 15, and because we plan on giving away so many for free, DVD quantities will be limited.  If you order today, you help DML showcase They Come to America 4, as it helps pay the fees to get the film listed on demand services like Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Famous ‘patriotic’ painter releases stunning new painting of Trump (picture)

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 07:18 AM PST

Jon McNaughton’s paintings have become well known among patriotic conservatives, as his work has featured moving scenes of the nation’s founding fathers and U.S. presidents, along with other patriotic scenes.

Late Monday night, McNaughton, an artist from Utah, released an image of his newest painting, “Respect the Flag,” addressing the issue of NFL players who knelt during the playing of the national anthem. The painting is of President Trump standing alone, holding a tattered American flag in the middle of a football stadium.

McNaughton released the image in a Twitter post, and soon after sent out another Twitter post with a YouTube video announcing the new painting as well. See the painting and watch the video below.

In September, McNaughton released the following painting, which included President Trump surrounded by veterans and law enforcement officials, with a man taking a knee – but not to protest. Instead, the man was planting a seedling.

Obama-era ‘no arrest’ policy might have protected Florida gunman

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 06:41 AM PST

In a Monday interview on SiriusXM’s “Breitbart News Tonight,” Republican Richard Corcoran, the Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives, contended that an Obama-era "no-arrest policy" for school discipline might have impeded the authorities in preventing Nikolas Cruz from murdering 17 people at a Florida high school on Valentine’s Day.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel coordinated with the Broward County Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie to implement the Preventing Recidivism through Opportunities, Mentoring, Intervention, Supports & Education program, known as PROMISE, which featured racial and ethnic quotas. The program’s intent, according to its website, “is to safeguard the student from entering the judicial system.”

On Sunday, Israel lauded the PROMISE program, contending that it offers schools “the ability under certain circumstances not to call the police, not to get the police involved on misdemeanor offenses and take care of it within the school.” Israel called it “an excellent program” and claimed that it is “helping many, many people. What this program does is not put a person at 14, 15, 16 years old into the criminal justice system.”

Breitbart reported, "The Obama-era Departments of Education and Justice – under education secretary Arne Duncan and Attorney General Eric Holder – issued school guidelines in 2014 that claimed students of color are ‘disproportionately impacted’ by suspensions and expulsions, a situation they said leads to a ‘school-to-prison pipeline’ that discriminates against minority and low-income students."

A January 2014 memorandum from the Departments of Education and Justice warned schools that federal investigations might occur based on "public reports" of unequal racial outcomes due to disciplinary policies.

"The Departments also may initiate investigations based on public reports of racial disparities in student discipline combined with other information, or as part of their regular compliance monitoring activities," the memorandum read. Such racial disparities, the memo asserted, are likely attributable to racial and ethnic discrimination. "Significant and unexplained racial disparities in student discipline give rise to concerns that schools may be engaging in racial discrimination that violates the Federal civil rights laws."

During the radio interview, host Joel Pollak questioned Corcoran about investigations into the PROMISE program, saying, “Mr. Speaker, let me ask you about the question of incompetence in the Broward County Sheriff's Department. There's this theory floating around out there that it wasn't just incompetence, that this was the result of policy, and specifically a policy of not punishing students for behavioral problems, a policy of not exposing students to the criminal justice system, but rather trying to let them adjust socially and avoid consequences that could come to them down the road if they have problems in school, but essentially a hands-off policy in the police department. Is that something you're looking into, as well?”

Corcoran, who is proposing legislation to terminate the PROMISE program, replied, “Not only are we looking into it, and not only is it part of the cause of our call for [Scott Israel's] incompetence, in the legislation that we're about to propose we're doing away with what we call the ‘no-arrest policy.’ They call it something nice and flowery like the ‘PROMISE program.’ It's not a promise program. What it is is allowing kids who are constantly engaged in — it's supposed to only be misdemeanor behavior, but how does the school personnel know if the law enforcement isn't called? It's felony behavior, and numerous of those felonies were alleged against [Nikolas Cruz]. Nothing was done because of this PROMISE policy, and as a result we have this tremendous tragedy that we're all suffering through.”

Following the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Israel has declared that he is investigating his department’s implementation of the PROMISE program.

“[Scott Israel is] investigating a deal that he made with the superintendent, that basically created under Obama a no-arrest policy,” Corcoran said. “So he basically said, 'Don't tell me unless it's a serious crime.' Now we know that Cruz was bringing bullets, knives, all kinds of things to school. All of them were given to the Broward County Sheriff's Office, nothing was done. And now he's investigating whether that happened, too, after he basically entered into an agreement with the school board not to tell him.”

Corcoran, along with 73 other Republican state lawmakers in Florida, called on Florida's Republican Gov. Rick Scott to suspend Israel from his duties as sheriff of Broward County.

MUST STOP illegal aliens from being eligible for healthcare benefits

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 06:19 AM PST

According to Pew Research Center, there were 11.3 million unauthorized immigrants in the U.S. in 2016. Currently, 14% of the uninsured (3.9 million) people in the US are illegal immigrants who are ineligible for both Medicaid and Obamacare coverage under federal law.   However, some members of Congress want this to change.

On Tuesday, DML News will be launching a report showing how US taxpayers already pay $18.5B for illegal alien healthcare.  That said, DML News believes that no illegal alien should receive Medicaid or Obamacare. Therefore, DML News is calling upon its readers to help fight the insanity, and to stop amnesty from becoming a reality at a time when President Trump and the GOP are showing signs of caving in to amnesty.

Most members of Congress have never visited the border, or gone to a job fair to see Americans applying for jobs that are often given to illegals.  In 2013, DML and his fan base sent copies of his films They Come to America I and II to members of Congress. It helped stopped the Gang of 8 bill from granting amnesty.   It’s time to do it again, now that Trump is talking about amnesty.

Turkish president tells 6-year-old girl she could die with honor (video)

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 06:19 AM PST

During a rally, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan informed a distraught young girl that she could die a hero on the battlefield.

The strange coping method happened on a stage in front of a crowd of Turkish citizens.

Fox News reports the following:

“Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan last weekend raised eyebrows when he called a visibly emotional girl, 6, onstage during a military rally and talked about the possibility of her becoming a martyr.

The New York Times reported Monday that Amine Tiras, a first grader and cadet, was in the crowd during the Saturday event. At some point Erdogan called on  Tiras and she was "lifted into the air" and sent towards him.

The video clip of the interaction went viral and shows Tiras crying and attempting to compose herself. The Times said Erdogan told her that she would be honored if she was ever killed in battle.

He pointed to a Turkish flag folded in her pocket, the report said.

"If she becomes a martyr, God willing, she will be wrapped with it. She is ready for everything, aren't you?" he asked.”

Colbert lambasts Trump for claim that he would stop shooter (video)

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 06:07 AM PST

Late Show host Stephen Colbert criticized President Trump’s remarks claiming that he would have run into the Parkland school to stop Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old gunman who killed 17 people.

"O.K. There's a lot in there that I doubt, but the part I really don't believe is that he can run,” Colbert quipped on his program.

He also remarked about Trump’s checkered past in avoiding the draft: "Look, sir, we already know how you react to combat situations. You got five deferments from Vietnam. What are you gonna do, run in there and stab 'em with your bone spurs?"

POLL: Should prayer be placed back in public schools

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 05:57 AM PST

With the news cycle dominated by the school shooting that took place in Parkland, Florida earlier this month, the inbox at DMLNews has been filled with all sorts of comments.  However, there is one common theme we are seeing.

Many of the DML readers are of the belief that the big change between “yesterday” and “today” is the lack of prayer in school.

One reader sent this comment: “I am hearing about all these school shootings.  We didn’t have these when I was a kid but we did have guns.  I hear the news people blaming it on the violent movies they play in theaters and TV, but we had violent movies when I was kid too.  We had drugs when I was a kid too.  There is only one definite change between yesterday and today, and that is GOD has been stripped from our schools.  If they put prayer back in school we’d have less of these shootings.”

Should prayer be inserted back in public schools?

Daughters of songwriter say Trump is a ‘snake’ (video)

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 05:50 AM PST

In an interview with CNN, the daughters of songwriter Oscar Brown Jr. claim their father’s song “The Snake” is about President Trump.

Despite the fact the song was written in the 1960s, the daughters believe Trump symbolizes the song’s content.

The Hill reports the following:

“Oscar Brown Jr.’s daughters are criticizing President Trump for his interpretation of their father’s song “The Snake.” 

During an interview on CNN, the late performer’s daughters were asked to explain the message of the song.

“The elephant in the room is that Trump is the living embodiment of the snake that my father wrote about in that song,” Africa Brown said. 

“It’s an African tradition to use stories to impart wisdom and that’s exactly what that was, teaching us about that.”

Oscar Brown Jr., a singer, songwriter, poet and activist who died in 2005, wrote “The Snake” in the early 1960s. “

DML: I Respond to Some of Your Emails

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 05:44 AM PST

Below are my responses to some of the emails I received from our readers.

To send me an email, use the submit news button.

FROM PHYLLIS
Dear Dennis, Do you think children should take the NYS education tests ELA and Math Assessments?Did you have your children take them? I would appreciate your feed back on this.

DML: I do not believe those tests add any value, and too much time is spent “prepping” for these sort of tests.  I also think too much homework is assigned.  I would do away with homework altogether.

FROM JODY
Super duper happy for my signed thanks card lol. Best thing ever. Thanks Dennis. From South Texas,
Jody

DML: Hat looks great on you, thanks for the support.

FROM JESSICA
Actually DML I just wanted to say…. You know what Michigan’s roads and government have in common. They both have very little to no chance of getting a proper fixing. LoL. Even if this is a bit lame, can’t deny it is true. Also I think if government is serious about protecting kids and schools, and if Trump is for real on creating more jobs, instead of arming teachers, how about our stable men and women who are done serving in military and who can’t find work here at home — why not budget to hire them to be security? In some ways it would cost less — they got all the training they need. It is food for thought. Plus, kills two birds with one stone. Protecting the schools and kids, as well as creating jobs for those willing to serve. Love to hear what you think.

DML: Even though they are already trained in using weapons, it would be required they take on new training specific to school safety.  Thus, the savings would not be there, but there is no question that hiring veterans to help protect our schools is an option worth exploring.

FROM JACK
I thought your program on Monday was absolutely excellent.  Great pace, world of information, awesome analysis.  I picked up my two copies of the DVDs and will be sending the free copy to the White House when they arrive.  Thanks DML!

DML: I thank you so much for the comments, and the DVD buys.

FROM ANGELA
Hi DML,  I thought you might get a grin out of this. My son is 13 and in 7th grade. He hears and picks up on a lot of the politics we talk around the house and of course what he hears at school (shutter at the thought). Well, his school is getting a remodel and just started adding on. One day he pointed out “Look Mom they built a wall” and we couldn’t help but laugh. And in conjunction, we were both very proud to see the construction crew has an American Flag up in the middle of the construction yard to the side of it.  Just thought I would share. Keep up the great work DML. Also a very nice Team DML lady named Linda Henderson sent me all your DVDs. I am doing my best to watch them in the evenings and I’m currently in the middle of They Come To America 2. Great movies. She only asked that when I am done I will pay it forward and I plan on doing so. Thanks for all you do!

DML: Thank for sharing.  Photos below.

RNC to pay for rental fees at Trump Tower during reelection campaign

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 05:38 AM PST

Trump Tower rental fees will now be covered by the RNC during President Trump’s reelection campaign.

Records show that the RNC has been dishing out money for stays at the Tower since January.

ABC News reports the following:

“President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign is open for business at Trump Tower in Manhattan and the Republican Party is footing the bill.

According to filings with the Federal Election Commission, rent payments — for more than $37,000 a month — began in late September, shortly after the Republican National Committee was coming under fire for covering legal costs for Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr., connected to the Russia probe.

Since then, the president has started to pay his own legal fees related to the Russia investigation, White House lawyer Ty Cobb told ABC News in November.

It's not clear whether there is a direct relationship between the timing of the RNC legal fee payments related to the Russia probe and the rent payments.

The RNC made two rent payments to Trump Tower Commercial LLC in January, according to the committee's latest filing with the FEC.”

Parkland shooting hearing canceled

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 05:24 AM PST

A scheduled court convening was canceled Tuesday morning, and the reasoning for the cancelation was not made immediately clear.

Nikolas Cruz, 19, was not expected to appear in court for the hearing.

The Associated Press reports the following:

“PARKLAND, Fla. (AP) — A Tuesday morning hearing in the criminal case against the suspect accused in the Florida high school shooting has been canceled.

Prosecutors are seeking to obtain hair samples, fingerprints, DNA and photographs of Nikolas Cruz, 19. The hearing was removed from the court docket and no explanation was immediately available.

Cruz, who has been charged with 17 counts of murder, was not expected to appear in court because he waived his right to attend the hearing. He is being held without bail at the Broward County Jail.

In a separate court matter, Cruz's lawyers are seeking to disqualify a judge from presiding over the case. The defense says in court papers that Circuit Court Judge Elizabeth Scherer is biased in favor of prosecutors, threatening Cruz's right to a fair trial.

Cruz signed an affidavit in a barely legible printed scrawl that resembled the writing of a young child.”

Hillary blames social media for 2016 in tweet, warns of 2018 elections

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 05:21 AM PST

Brad Parscale describes himself on Twitter as “Digital Media & Advertising Consultant. Advisor to the Presidential Campaign & .”  On Monday he tweeted a link to a story from WIRED magazine, entitled: “HOW TRUMP CONQUERED FACEBOOK—WITHOUT RUSSIAN ADS.”  Along with the link, Parscale writes: “Finally. gets it right. Here is an insider at that built the system and saw behind the curtain.”

The tweet sparked a response from a writer from WIRED magazine, Nicholas Thompson, who posed a question: “One thing I’ve long wanted to find, but haven’t, is exactly the difference in Facebook ad CPMs paid by the Trump campaign versus the Hillary campaign. If anyone knows, DMs are open.”  In this tweet, DM is short for ‘direct message.’

Responding to the tweet, Parscale reads: “I bet we were 100x to 200x her. We had CPMs that were pennies in some cases. This is why was a perfect candidate for FaceBook.”

Responding to Parscale, is Kim Cutlera — a writer for TechCrunch.  She tweets: “I can't believe this tweet isn't going viral. Do people not really care that Facebook may have systematically charged the Clinton campaign an order of magnitude or two more than it was charging Trump to reach American voters? (Which is not allowed in other mediums by law.)”

Hillary Clinton responds to Cutler by writing this tweet: “We should all care about how social media platforms play a part in our democratic process. Because unless it's addressed it will happen again. The midterms are in 8 months. We owe it to our democracy to get this right, and fast.”

Ivanka ripped by liberal TV host for protecting her father (video)

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 05:04 AM PST

The outspoken liberal, Chelsea Handler recently left her Netflix talk show to focus on political activism. As part of her new gig, she is lashing out against Ivanka Trump after she defended her father in an interview.

As seen below, Ivanka scolded an NBC and MSNBC reporter for asking questions about her father's alleged sexual misconduct.

"I think it's a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter if she believes the accusers of her father when he's affirmatively stated that there's no truth to it. I don't think that's a question you would ask many other daughters," she said in the interview. "I believe my father, I know my father.”

Handler took to Twitter Monday to share an image from a 1996 photo shoot for Vanity Fair that shows her sitting on her father's lap, caressing his face and staring at him at his Mar-a-Lago estate.

She writes: “Ivanka Trump said it’s "inappropriate" to ask her about the sexual accusations against her father. Would it be more appropriate if we asked you while you sat on his lap like this?”
