The media latched on to a few absurdly overblown stories to keep the bad vibes flowing during President Trump’s first overseas journey. Editorial judgment is apparently easy to suspend when the opportunity to hype an odd photo or curious video clip presents itself.

Washington Free Beacon, by Cameron Cawthorne Posted By: KarenJ1- Sat, 27 15 2017 03:15:50 GMT House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) spoke Friday at an LGBT rights event at the Pride Center at Equality Park of South Florida, where she touted how liberals in the Democratic Party only voted for the nation´s defense spending bill for fiscal year 2011 so they could repeal “Don´t Ask, Don´t Tell.” “Don´t tell anybody I told you this,” Pelosi said, before explaining how she was able to get liberal Democrats onboard to support the National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, the annual federal law that specifies the Defense Department´s budget and expenditures. Pelosi described how in 2010 Democrats put an
Daily Caller, by Will Racke Posted By: Lalo- Sat, 27 19 2017 03:19:13 GMT In a move that undermines claims that he is controlled by the Kremlin, President Donald Trump will keep in place sanctions that the Obama administration imposed against Russia as punishment for Moscow’s alleged interference in the U.S. presidential election. The Trump administration is currently conducting a full review its Russia policy, but the president will continue the sanctions, top White House economic advisor Gary Cohn said Friday. The U.S. enacted the measures a month before Trump took office, and administration critics have fretted he would lift the sanctions in an effort to draw Washington closer to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
New York Post, by Joe Tacopino Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 27 20 2017 03:20:23 GMT The White House is considering whether to appoint a legal team to police President Trump’s tweets, it was revealed on Friday. The administration could have lawyers scrutinize Trump infamous social media posts as numerous investigations have been launched into White House officials, according to The Wall Street Journal. The lawyer’s goal would be to avoid potential pitfalls from the president’s verbose volleys on Twitter. Trump, a prolific tweeter, has caused controversy during his time in office after issuing unverified claims about President Obama wiretapping the Trump Tower and attacks on former FBI director James Comey. The tweet review comes as the

Tim Kaine´s youngest son was one of eight people charged in Minnesota Friday in relation to their alleged disruption of a rally supporting President Trump.

Daily Caller, by Juliegrace Brufke Posted By: Lalo- Sat, 27 25 2017 03:25:15 GMT Former House Speaker John Boehner said he thinks the vast majority of Donald Trump’s presidency has been a “complete disaster” during a recent energy conference in Houston, Texas. Boehner, who resigned from his Ohio House seat in October 2015, applauded Trump’s approach to foreign policy — praising his decision to take a strong stand against the Islamic State — but was highly critical of the progress he has made in other areas thus far. “Everything else he’s done [in office] has been a complete disaster,” he said Wednesday, according to energy publication Rigzone. “He’s still learning how to be president.” Boehner and Trump
Fox News, by Staff Posted By: KarenJ1- Sat, 27 25 2017 03:25:27 GMT A federal district court judge has overturned the sentence of Lee Boyd Malvo, one of the two people convicted in D.C.’area Beltway sniper attacks nearly 15 years ago, according to a ruling released Friday. (Snip) Malvo appealed to the court saying he should not have been sentenced to life without parole because he was 17 years old at the time of the murders and he based his appeal on the Supreme Court ruling in Miller v. Alabama. The decision in the Supreme Court case ruled juveniles are constitutionally different from adults for the purposes of sentencing “because juveniles have diminished culpability

Reuters, by Yeganeh Torbati Posted By: Lalo- Sat, 27 33 2017 03:33:28 GMT Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has declined a request to host an event to mark Islam´s holy month of Ramadan, two U.S. officials said, apparently breaking with a bipartisan tradition in place with few exceptions for nearly 20 years. Since 1999, Republican and Democratic secretaries of state have nearly always hosted either an iftar dinner to break the day´s fast during Ramadan or a reception marking the Eid al’Fitr holiday at the end of the month, at the State Department. Tillerson turned down a request from the State Department´s Office of Religion and Global Affairs to host an Eid al’Fitr
Daily Signal, by Lee Edwards Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 27 36 2017 03:36:45 GMT As we pause this Memorial Day to honor those who died so that we might enjoy the blessings of liberty, here are some facts to remember about the day and some inspiring words from a great president. Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day, set aside to decorate the graves of fallen Civil War soldiers. On the first Decoration Day in 1868, Gen. James Garfield spoke at Arlington National Cemetery where some 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers were buried. Garfield said they “summed up and perfected, by one supreme act, the highest virtue of men and citizens.” Red poppies
