Grenfell Tower fire: Cladding used on block is ILLEGAL in UK, Philip Hammond says

Daily Express [UK], by Lizzie Stromme Posted By: Attercliffe- Sun, 18 12 2017 02:12:19 GMT PHILIP HAMMOND has confirmed the cladding used on Grenfell Tower is banned in the UK after being grilled over the Government’s response to the deadly blaze. The Chancellor faced tough questions on the BBC’s Andrew Marr show as the public turned on Theresa May, calling for the PM to resign. Marr asked the Tory Cabinet minister: “The cladding that was used around this tower which went up the rocket is banned across most European countries and banned in the United States. “If the inquiry says it’s got to be banned in this country and it’s got to be torn off every single

The Justice Department Is Killing Trump

National Review Online, by Andrew C. McCarthy Posted By: StormCnter- Sun, 18 13 2017 02:13:42 GMT President Donald Trump’s missteps have intensified the scandal that is consuming his administration. One is tempted to put scandal in scare quotes. Trump is somehow enmeshed in a scandal based on actions that a president is fully entitled to take — such as dismissing the FBI director and weighing in on the merits of continuing an investigation of his former national’security adviser. It is, in addition, a scandal born of Trump’s desperation to publicize information that is true and that a president is fully entitled to publicize — such as the facts that the president had been assured by the

Is Megyn the Man’Eater Receiving Her Just Reward?

American Thinker, by Jeannie DeAngelis Posted By: magnante- Sun, 18 20 2017 02:20:14 GMT Like a Black Widow spider, infotainment sensation Megyn Kelly has advanced both her personal and career life sniffing out testosterone and then feeding off male prey. Prior to her meteoric rise to fame, Megyn was married to an anesthesiologist named David Kendall. Mr. Kendall said that on the day the couple married, the priest counseled Megyn on the importance of ‘taking care of her husband.’ Megyn responded to the advice by asking, “What about him taking care of his wife?” The ambitious celebrity enhanced her résumé, transforming from a rookie news anchor into a self’impressed show boater with the same self’regard.

Something is fishy about USS Fitzgerald story we are getting from the media

Rick ‘Put a Bullet in Trump’ Wilson: POTUS Supporters See Scalise Shooting as ‘Blessing’

Breitbart Big Government, by Tony Lee Posted By: KarenJ1- Sun, 18 46 2017 02:46:23 GMT GOP establishment consultant Rick Wilson, one of the most vile “Never Trumpers” who once said the donor class should “put a bullet in” Donald Trump, thinks supporters of President Trump saw the assassination attempt on House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R’LA) as a “blessing.” “A lot of clickservatives saw yesterday as a grim blessing,” Wilson tweeted the morning after a gunman who hated Trump and Republicans opened fire on Republicans who were practicing for the Congressional Baseball Game. After saying that Trump supporters were “dead right” about the “media double standard,” Wilson claimed “the thing they really loved… even at the cost

Jenner On GOP Baseball Shooting: ‘Liberals Can’t Even Shoot Straight’

A crowd at the convention of the College Republican National Committee erupted in laughter and applause when featured speaker Caitlyn Jenner joked Friday about the attack on a group of GOP lawmakers, saying: “Liberals can’t even shoot straight.”

The comment was captured on videotape posted by a College Republican group in Virginia on its Facebook page.  Jenner made the disturbing joke when she was asked by a moderator at the Washington dinner about the shooting Wednesday in Virginia at a baseball practice that critically wounded House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and injured several others.

Scalise’s condition has since been upgraded to serious. Suspect James Hodgkinson was fatally shot by police. Hodgkinson had a violent history, railed about Republicans and was a supporter of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ bid for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

“First of all, nobody deserves what happened out there,” Jenner, a supporter of President Donald Trump, said when asked about the shooting. “There’s no justification’’ for such an attack,’’ she added. There are crazy people in the world. … We have to minimize that type of stuff.”

“As far as the people that were injured, it’s an absolute shame,’’ she continued. “You just want them to recover. Fortunately, the guy was a really bad shot. Liberals can’t even shoot straight.”

Jenner was asked the question by a moderator who identified himself as a “gay conservative” who said he was “embarrassed” by coverage of the shooting that in some cases noted that Scalise has an “anti-gay” legislative record. The moderator said it was “not the time or place” for such characterizations.

There were only a few posted comments to the video on the Virginia group’s Facebook page. One praised the party for being more “inclusive” by inviting Jenner to speak. Another said Jenner’s comments “seem counterproductive.” One called them disgusting.

Jenner is an unusual champion for Trump and his supporters, given the president’s history with supporting North Carolina’s anti-trans HB2 and his rescinding of President Obama’s trans student directive earlier this year. The party also passed an anti-gay and trans platform at its convention last year.

Jenner’s comments spurred criticism on Twitter.

Hey #CaitlynJenner you’re causing more chaos with your comments about liberals. Please stop. You’re not helping us in the #LGBTQ community.

German Government Holds Out Hope For ‘Soft Brexit’


BERLIN (AP) – Germany’s foreign minister says there may now be a chance of a “soft” British exit from the European Union that keeps the U.K. in the bloc’s single market, but is warning that Britain couldn’t pick and choose its conditions. Brexit negotiations start on Monday, with question marks over Britain’s approach after Prime Minister Theresa May lost her parliamentary majority in an election meant to strengthen her hand in the talks. German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel told Sunday’s Welt am Sonntag newspaper that “maybe there is now a chance to achieve a so-called ‘soft Brexit.’” But he said staying in the single market would require Britain to accept EU workers’ freedom of movement. It also would have to accept the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice, “or at least a joint court that is staffed by Europeans and Britons” and in principle follows the ECJ’s rulings, Gabriel said. For many Brexit advocates, those conditions would be impossible to accept as last year’s referendum campaign focused on getting back control over laws and immigration from the EU. Gabriel said “it would naturally be best if Britain didn’t leave at all.” “It doesn’t look like that at the moment,”
