“American Hero Moons Donald Trump’s Motorcade On Its Way To D.C. Event” Reply


POLITICUS USA

“It was a full moon in Washington D.C. on Thursday night as a man reportedly dropped his pants and flashed his rear end to Donald Trump’s motorcade as it drove by on its way to an event at the Embassy of the State of Kuwait.

The details, according to the White House press pool:

Just shy of Tilden Street, several of the riders in the press van reported seeing a man mooning the motorcade from one of the lower floors of an apartment building. One of our colleagues stated it was a full moon.

There have been no reported pictures of the incident taking place, but it’s not hard to believe such a thing would happen to this president, as he continues to see some of the most dismal approval numbers in modern American history.” MORE

SALON

“Several marijuana farms in Mendocino County, California have been destroyed as a result of the state’s rapid spreading wildfires, leaving many business owners — who the law bars from obtaining insurance — without product as legal sales are set to begin in January, according to multiple news reports.

Since Sunday night, wildfires have spread throughout Northern California’s wine country and have left at least 24 dead and hundreds missing, CNN reported.

More than 3,500 structures have been destroyed, and Gov. Jerry Brown declared state of emergencies in eight counties as 21 fires burn throughout the state. More than 191,000 were torched, “a collective area nearly the size of New York City,” The Washington Post reported.” MORE

“Donald Trump Jr. Met With Russian Lawyer After Being Promised Damaging Intel On Hillary Clinton: Report”


HUFFINGTON POST

CNN BREAKING NEWS . . .


Russian government officials discussed having potentially “derogatory” information about then-presidential candidate Donald Trump and some of his top aides in conversations intercepted by US intelligence during the 2016 election, according to two former intelligence officials and a congressional source.

One source described the information as financial in nature and said the discussion centered on whether the Russians had leverage over Trump’s inner circle. The source said the intercepted communications suggested to US intelligence that Russians believed “they had the ability to influence the administration through the derogatory information.”

But the sources, privy to the descriptions of the communications written by US intelligence, cautioned the Russian claims to one another “could have been exaggerated or even made up.”

Bipartisan congressional negotiators have reached a critical agreement on a spending bill that if approved by the House and Senate would fund the government through the end of September, senior aides from both parties told CNN.

The plan would add billions of dollars for the Pentagon and border security but would not provide any money for President Donald Trump’s promised border wall with Mexico.

Votes in both chambers are expected by the end of the week.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Friday that US sanctions against Russia will remain in place until Moscow “reverses the actions” it has taken in Ukraine.

The comments are notable given President Donald Trump’s reluctance at times to criticize Russia over its actions in Crimea, though he did declare last month that the territory was “taken” by Russia. As a candidate, Trump hinted he might recognize Russia’s annexation of Crimea, and sources have previously told CNN that Ukraine-related sanctions were on the table for review as part of Trump’s interest in pursuing warmer ties with Moscow.

“We do not, and will not, accept Russian efforts to change the borders of territory of Ukraine,” Tillerson said at NATO headquarters in Brussels.

Earlier Friday, Tillerson and Defense Secretary James Mattis criticized Russian actions in overseas comments aimed at reassuring US allies.

Mattis, appearing with his British counterpart in London, also called out the Putin regime for “mucking around” in other people’s elections — a claim that comes as federal and congressional investigators are probing alleged Russian meddling in the US elections last November.
