I had read previous articles late last year that indicated she had health problems after she fainted in New York City , there was some coverage at that time about her health , but the story died down and didn't get much press after the fainting incident


the story today about the national guard being sent out to round up illegal immigrants was manufactured by someone ?

it didn't come from the trump administration or from his press conference yesterday , he did not feed them this story , it was created by someone else

Some thing must be falling apart when FOX news starts telling Trump he is being an idiot for his lack of respect for the media.

Stay tuned, its only 230!

Will any of the alt right make an issue when they realize that Trumps security , Mar-a-Lago, the kids trips overseas, Trump Towers have cost more already than Obama did in the same time frame.

Oh I doubt it, but......the media lies! :roll:

trump's attack on the media and the media's attack on trump . are both rather unprecedented

I'm not an American history scholar but I was mostly under the belief American's generally liked there presidents but maybe partisan politics have changed things for the negative
many past presidents were viewed very positively like Kennedy , Reagan , Roosevelt , to see such negatively directed at one is rather unheard of in recent presidential history
usually they'd only see this type of media firestorm when there was a major crisis in Washington or a controversial bill up for vote , but not on a daily basis

Trump tears into ’dishonest media’ at campaign rally


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

First posted: Saturday, February 18, 2017 08:13 PM EST | Updated: Saturday, February 18, 2017 09:53 PM EST



MELBOURNE, Fla. — Just four weeks into his administration, President Donald Trump appeared at a campaign rally that mirrored the months leading up to Election Day, complete with promises to repeal the health care law, insults for the news media and a playlist highlighted by the Rolling Stones.

“I want to be among my friends and among the people,” Trump told a cheering crowd packed into an airport hangar in central Florida, praising his “truly great movement.”

Trump promised anew to build a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, reduce regulations and create jobs. He also pledged to “do something over the next couple of days” to address the immigration order that has been blocked in the courts. Said Trump: “We don’t give up, we never give up.”

Insisting he was the victim of false reporting, Trump said his White House was running “so smoothly” and that he “inherited one big mess.” The president has been trying refocus after reports of disarray and dysfunction within his administration.

Speaking to reporters on Air Force One before the rally, Trump said he was holding a campaign rally because “life is a campaign.”

“To make America great again is absolutely a campaign,” he said. “It’s not easy, especially when we’re also fighting the press.”

And he’s also had to contend with crowds of protesters. Thousands of them were out on the streets of Dallas and Los Angeles to oppose immigration enforcement raids and to support immigrants and refugees generally. In Los Angeles, an organizer urged local authorities not to spend money on immigration enforcement.

Trump, who held a rally in the same spot in Florida in September, clearly relished being back in front of his supporters, welcoming the cheers and letting one supporter up on stage to offer praise for the president. He also enjoyed reliving his surprise victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

First lady Melania Trump introduced her husband at the rally, reciting the Lord’s Prayer before offering her own pledge to act in the best interest of all Americans as she pursues initiatives she says will impact women and children around the world.

The event had the familiar trappings of a Trump campaign rally, including red Trump caps, “Make America Great Again” and “Trump/Pence” signs and at least one sign reading “Hillary for Prison.” Some of the speakers ahead of Trump’s appearance called for repealing and replacing President Barack Obama’s health care law, criticized the news media or lobbed barbs at Clinton, other constants of last year’s rallies.

The music playlist preceding Trump’s appearance included rally favourites like Free’s “All Right Now.” As Air Force One rolled up to the hangar, the theme to the Harrison Ford movie “Air Force One” signalled its arrival. Trump and the first lady appeared as Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the U.S.A.” played. And his 45-minute remarks were followed by another 2016 campaign favourite, the 1969 hit “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” by the Rolling Stones.

The rally came during Trump’s third straight weekend at his private south Florida club, Mar-a-Lago. It was another working weekend for the president, who planned to interview at least four potential candidates for the job of national security adviser, a position unexpectedly open after retired Gen. Michael Flynn’s firing early this week.

Trump said Saturday “I have many, many that want the job, they want to really be a part of it. I’ll make a decision over the next couple of days.”

Scheduled to discuss the job with the president were his acting adviser, retired Army Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg; John Bolton, a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations; Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster; and the superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Lt. Gen. Robert Caslen. White House spokesman Sean Spicer said the four interviews were expected to take place Sunday at the private estate.

Finding a new national security adviser was proving to be a challenge for Trump. His first choice, retired Vice Adm. Robert Harward, turned down the offer.

Trump had also expressed interest in former CIA Director David Petraeus, but Spicer said Saturday that Petraeus was not a finalist. The retired four-star general resigned as CIA director in 2012 and pleaded guilty to one misdemeanour charge of mishandling classified information relating to documents he had provided to his biographer, with whom he was having an affair.

Flynn resigned at Trump’s request Monday after revelations that he misled Vice-President Mike Pence about discussing sanctions with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. during the transition. Trump said in a news conference Thursday that he was disappointed by how Flynn had treated Pence, but did not believe Flynn had done anything wrong by having the conversations.

Trump has lurched from crisis to crisis since the inauguration, including the botched rollout of his immigration order, struggles confirming his Cabinet picks and a near-constant stream of reports about strife within his administration.

Priebus says US intel officials call campaign-Russia story 'garbage,' tries to end controversy


Published February 19, 2017
· FoxNews.com



White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said Sunday that top U.S. intelligence officials have told him that Donald Trump’s presidential campaign did not collude with Russia -- attempting to end widespread new reports about potentially compromising, illegal talks with the former Cold War enemy.

“I can assure you, the top levels of the intelligence community have assured me that [the allegation] is not only grossly overstated, but also wrong,” Priebus told “Fox News Sunday.” “They have made it very clear that the story is complete garbage.”

However, his statement is unlikely to end the controversy, amid bipartisan calls on Capitol Hill to hold investigative hearings.

New stories about a potential Trump-Russia connection began to surface during the 2016 campaign when Trump lauded Russian President Vladimir Putin’s forceful governing style.

And they appeared to reach a peak following reports that retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, before he officially became Trump’s national security adviser, spoke with a Russian official about U.S. sanctions, which led last week to Flynn’s forced resignation.

In a freewheeling press conference Thursday, the president repeatedly said he had no knowledge of campaign officials talking to Russian officials.

Priebus attempted Sunday to close the matter, but declined to name his contacts within the intelligence community, which raised questions about him using the same kind of anonymous sources for a story that the administration opposes.

He also said officials within the intelligence community -- which includes the CIA and FBI -- have dismissed reports that they have denied Trump intelligence reports, fearing a national security breach.

Priebus defended Trump’s tweet in which he called the new media the “enemy of the American people.”

“I understand where he is coming from,” he said. “There are certain things that are happening in the news that just aren’t honest. We aren’t talking about everyone. … There is nothing wrong with background. We need to communicate with reporters and give context

( the latest half crazy article from Newsweek , speculates on the idea of President Pence ? and how long trump will even last in the job . ok the idea of Pence as president is not new but for this to be openly discussed by a leading news organization at this stage is rather over the top )



How Many Days Before President Pence?

By Ronald L. Feinman On 2/19/17 at 8:10 AM



This article first appeared on the History News Network site.

The news of the forced resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, due to the scandal that he, as a private citizen, spoke to the Russian ambassador in December after President Barack Obama issued sanctions on Russia for their aggressive behavior, has rocked the Donald Trump Presidency.

Trump, already under fire by many conservatives and Republicans for his “bromance” with Russian President Vladimir Putin, is suspect as to his loyalty to traditional American foreign policy, as a result of him having hired Flynn in the first place.

Try Newsweek for only $1.25 per week

Critics had observed that Flynn seemed unreliable and had poor judgment. Former colleagues darkly joked that there were “Flynn facts,” a reference to his penchant for making up stuff. Flynn had also been criticized for being too close to Putin. At the Republican convention he joined in a chorus of “Lock her up!” a reference to Hillary Clinton.

Many foreign policy professionals are shaking their head at Trump’s inappropriate behavior and language every time he speaks in public, or issues a Twitter comment, and his instability and recklessness.

His having a security meeting over the North Korean missile test in public space at dinner in full vision of other guests is a sign of his failure to act responsibly. His abrupt ending of a phone call to the Australian Prime Minister, our loyal ally in four wars in the past hundred years, is alarming.



Vice President Mike Pence speaks to the Congress of Tomorrow Republican Member Retreat January 26, in Philadelphia. Ronald L. Feinman writes that Pence could, even if President Donald Trump vehemently opposed it, invoke the 25th Amendment, Section 4 with the approval of a majority of the cabinet, which would make Pence “Acting President.” Some might call it a “palace coup” but Pence could make a convincing case that it is too risky to leave Trump in power.



His inconsistent message in his dealings with China, first indicating he accepted the idea of two Chinas, and then backing off under pressure, is disturbing. His inconsistency on the two-state solution in the Middle East is a major problem, as is his seeming lack of respect for Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, and lack of strong support for NATO.

The fact that Vice President Mike Pence played a major role in pushing Flynn out is a sign that Pence is already asserting himself with Trump, and it seems clear that Pence will not stand by and allow our foreign policy to be damaged, or our national security to be endangered. The American people, ultimately, would not expect anything less.

Mike Pence is an establishment Republican, with 12 years in the House of Representatives, where he served in a leadership position as Republican Conference Chairman in his last four years in the House before running for Governor of Indiana.

Pence is a no-nonsense, hard-nosed Republican whose strong Christian convictions have shaped his politics, including his stands on women’s issues, gay and lesbian matters, and his refusal to accept the concept of global warming. His stands on these and other issues alienated moderate Republicans in his state.

His poll numbers were low when Donald Trump picked him for vice president. Many doubted Pence would have been able to win a second term as governor.

Pence knows how to play “hard ball” and it is clear by his demeanor and body language that he is often uncomfortable with Trump’s freewheeling and careless behavior.

An investigation into the Flynn matter will develop, with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell promoting it. Additionally, Senators John Cornyn of Texas, Roy Blunt of Missouri, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, and John McCain of Arizona all are pushing for hearings.

As the FBI investigates this situation further, which would be expected to occur as a normal procedure after such a high level and immediate scandal, the earliest ever in any Presidential term (25 days), there will be calls for Trump to resign or be impeached.

Pence will have the difficult job of defending Trump in public appearances, but can be expected to work behind the scenes to insure that Trump stabilizes his utterances and actions, particularly on foreign policy and national security matters.

Pence faces now a situation that has some similarity to Gerald Ford under Richard Nixon during a time of trouble and controversy, and the possibility of future Congressional action against Donald Trump if his mental behavior continues to disturb the top leadership of the Republican Party and the foreign policy establishment.

As this author wrote on January 22 on History News Network, Pence could, even if Trump vehemently opposed it, invoke the 25th Amendment, Section 4 with the approval of a majority of the cabinet, which would make Pence “Acting President.” Some might call it a “palace coup” but Pence could make a convincing case that it is too risky to leave Trump in power.


Pence faces a great burden, and whether one agrees with his own agenda on domestic and foreign policy, it seems clear that the Vice President would do what he feels compelled to do if the situation further deteriorates.

One would imagine that if such a scenario occurred, that Donald Trump would resign, as Richard Nixon did in 1974 after the House Judiciary Committee approved his impeachment. But with an unhinged person such as Trump, who can say what would happen in such a circumstance?

In any case, it seems likely that Donald Trump will be leaving the Presidency at some point, likely between the 31 days of William Henry Harrison in 1841 (dying of pneumonia) and the 199 days of James A. Garfield in 1881 (dying of an assassin’s bullet after 79 days of terrible suffering and medical malpractice). At the most, it certainly seems likely, even if dragged out, that Trump will not last 16 months and 5 days, as occurred with Zachary Taylor in 1850 (dying of a digestive ailment). The Pence Presidency seems inevitable.

( the latest media freak out has to do with a Sweden comment , a country which has seen no terror attacks but has been overrun with migrants who have not found jobs and have no clear purpose for being in the country )


Donald Trump tweets 'Sweden' reference had to do with Fox News story on immigrants


Matti Huuhtanen, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

First posted: Sunday, February 19, 2017 10:50 AM EST | Updated: Sunday, February 19, 2017 08:26 PM EST


HELSINKI — Swedes have been scratching their heads and ridiculing President Donald Trump’s remarks that suggested a major incident had happened in the Scandinavian country. The American president now says he was referring to something he saw on television.

During a rally in Florida on Saturday, Trump said “look what’s happening last night in Sweden” as he alluded to past terror attacks in Europe. It wasn’t clear what he was referring to and there were no high-profile situations reported in Sweden on Friday night.

The comment prompted a barrage of social media reaction on Sunday, with hundreds of tweets, and a local newspaper published a list of events that happened on Friday that appeared to have no connections to any terror-like activity.

On Sunday, Trump took to Twitter to explain: “My statement as to what’s happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden.” A White House spokeswoman, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, says that Trump was talking about rising crime and recent incidents in general, not referring to a specific issue.

The president may be referring to a segment aired Friday night on the Fox News Channel show “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that reported Sweden had accepted more than 160,000 asylum-seekers last year but that only 500 of the migrants had found jobs in Sweden. The report, which was illustrated with video of broken windows and fires, went on to say that a surge in gun violence and rape had followed the influx of immigrants.

Reacting to Trump’s original remarks, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Catarina Axelsson said that the government wasn’t aware of any “terror-linked major incidents.” Sweden’s Security Police said it had no reason to change the terror threat level.

“Nothing has occurred which would cause us to raise that level,” agency spokesman Karl Melin said.

Former Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt tweeted , “Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound.”

Addressing Trump in an article on Sunday, the Aftonbladet tabloid wrote, “This happened in Sweden Friday night, Mr President,” and then listed in English some events that included a man being treated for severe burns, an avalanche warning and police chasing a drunken driver.

One Twitter user said, “After the terrible events #lastnightinSweden, IKEA have sold out of this” and posted a mock Ikea instruction manual on how to build a “Border Wall.”

Sweden, which has a long reputation for welcoming refugees and migrants, had a record 163,000 asylum applications in 2015. The country has since cut back on the number it annually accepts.

Its most recent attack linked to extremism happened in the capital, Stockholm, in December 2010. An Iraqi-born Swede detonated two explosive devices, including one that killed him but no one else.

In the month he has been president, Trump’s remarks and those of his staff have fueled numerous news media “fact checks” pointing out inaccuracies and falsehoods. On the subject of terrorism, Trump counsellor Kellyanne Conway referred to a “Bowling Green Massacre” that never occurred.

Former foreign minister Bildt told Swedish Radio after his initial confounded tweet Sunday that he sees danger in how Trump relates to facts.

“If we are in a situation where there is tension in the world, we stand between war and peace,” he said. “If we then have a president who spreads lots of false rumours, it can be truly dangerous.”

( another bizarre article from the left wing media , about how trump won't be the shortest serving president ever ? really did that honesty not think he was going to last more than 1 month ? )

President Trump Officially Won’t Be the Shortest-Serving U.S. President

by Chelsea Bailey



This Presidents Day, as thousands prepare to swarm the streets for "Not My President's Day" rallies, the president will celebrate a milestone — he's reached his 32nd day in office.

That small victory means that, despite the demands of his detractors, President Trump will not have the shortest term in the Oval Office.

That unfortunate honor rests with William Henry Harrison, the ninth president of the United States, who died from pneumonia just 32 days into his presidency, on April 4, 1841 — making him also the first president to die in office.

At the time the 65-year-old Harrison was our country's oldest president. Trump, elected at 70, now holds that title.

Throughout his campaign for the White House, the Democratic Party attempted to portray Harrison, a decorated military officer and longtime politician, as elderly and out of touch with the Americans, according to White House historians.

But their mocking wasn't enough to deny Harrison the Oval Office. Despite winning by a narrow majority of 150,000 votes, Harrison dominated in the Electoral College winning 234 electoral votes to 60.

James Garfield, who was assassinated after only 7 months in office, is the second-shortest-serving president.

More left wing crap, this time from the SUN.

Canada’s strategy needs to constrain Trump, not empower him

Tom Parkin BY TOM PARKIN, POSTMEDIA NETWORK
FIRST POSTED: MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2017 04:15 PM MST | UPDATED: MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2017 04:19 PM MST

Tom Parkin is a former NDP staffer and social democrat media commentator

Donald Trump is the KKK-endorsed, torture-approving, wall-building, authoritarian protectionist who may be compromised by the Russians. Remember that fact.

In contrast, Canada’s Prime Minister has built considerable political currency among US progressives. He calls himself a feminist. And our compassion for Syrian war refugees is a beacon of freedom compared to Trump’s dark and Islamophobic travel ban.

A Washington Post columnist even recently proclaimed Trudeau a “leader of the liberal global resistance to President Trump.”

Yet last week, conservative news media loved playing images of the liberal Canadian PM meeting Donald Trump and Ivanka Trump, his daughter.

You see, Trudeau gave the US President an incredible, priceless gift: images, video and news stories of Donald Trump sitting with him at a roundtable of a dozen CEO-level businesswomen. An image of equality and liberality.

And Trump added enlightened words. “In order to create economic growth and well-paying jobs we must ensure the economy is a place where women can work and thrive,” he told the roundtable with as much progressive smooth as Trudeau might offer.

Also at the table was Ivanka Trump, the President’s daughter. Ms Trump is not a White House official. Nor a member of the women’s CEO roundtable. Her role was to sit beside our PM. And the images of a handsome man beside a seemingly smitten woman have generated a torrent of social media memes. All by design.

Amid the images of Justin and Ivanka, conservative Fox News told a story. “She has provided a strong voice for businesswomen and working women,” reported Fox. She’s been working to “level the playing field” for women entrepreneurs, small business owners and workers.

Even more. Ivanka Trump has “influenced” her father’s “comprehensive child-care plan” which includes a “paid (maternity) leave policy…beyond the traditional reach of the Republican Party platform.”

The words and imagery made the point – forget Trump the vile sexist. Look here – he’s practically a feminist. And if he’s not there yet, Ivanka is certainly moving him in that direction.

And according to many media reports, it was our PM’s office that proposed the women’s roundtable. No wonder American progressives have gone silent. They’re seething.

Then Trudeau jetted to France to meet Antonio Tajani, the President of the European Parliament. Tajani is an MEP for Forza Italia – the right-wing party of billionaire Silvio Berlusconi, the Trump prototype. Sitting beside Tajani, Trudeau once again shined-up Trump’s image.

He talked about his White House visit. “What I saw from the American president was a focus on getting things done for the people who supported him and who believe in him, while demonstrating that good relations with one’s neighbours is a great way of getting things done.”

Good relations. Getting things done. Anyone believing this?

At nearly the exact same time, here on planet reality, Trump was leading a chaotic press conference about nuclear holocaust, torpedoing Russian ships and fake news. Yet Trump, like Trudeau, insisted his administration was “a fine-tuned machine.”

Look, no one should want Trudeau to be rude or disagreeable with Trump. But let’s not help him. Trump is an economic and social threat to Canada. He’s a threat to democratic America. Canada should be working with like-minded nations to constrain him.

Shining-up Trump’s image and undermining US progressives is against our interests – unless you can’t see past next quarter’s profit report.

Sean Hannity: Trump frustrates 'fake news' media at every turn


Sean Hannity

By Sean Hannity
·Published February 21, 2017
· FoxNews.com


President Trump is once again showing he is no longer going to put up with the out-of-control left-wing media bias. And this weekend in Florida, the president once again took direct aim at these corrupt news organizations.

“The dishonest media, which has published one false story after another with no sources, even though they pretend they have them, they make them up in many cases,” Trump said over the weekend. “And they've been calling us wrong now for two years. They don't get it, but they're starting to get it, I can tell you that. They've become a big part of the problem. They are part of the corrupt system.

Trump’s broadside continued as he labeled the press an “enemy of the people” and rallied his supporters directly – instead of allowing his words to be filtered through the abusively biased media.

“We are not going to let the fake news tell us what to do, how to live or what to believe,” he said to thunderous applause. “We are free and independent people, and we will make our own choices.”

The alt-left propaganda media responded in a pathetically predictable fashion.

“Trump's attacks on the American press as enemies of the American people are more treacherous than Richard Nixon's attacks on the press,” journalist and author Carl Bernstein told CNN. “Nixon's attacks on the press were largely in private. There's a history of what ‘enemy of the people’ … means as used by dictators and authoritarians, including Stalin, including Hitler. And I'm not about to say anything about comparing Hitler and Trump, but it's a demagogue's statement.”

See what he did there? And CNN’s Chris Cuomo had an ominous warning about the possible consequences of Trump calling out the media.

“Somebody's going to get hurt,” Cuomo said. “It's just a question of time, because just like in every other dynamic in life, if you take somebody's who's got a legitimate reason to be upset in the first place, and you pump them up and it starts to become a call to action ... somebody's going to get hurt.”

Finally, ABC’s White House correspondent Jonathan Karl tried to wrap the abusively biased alt-left propaganda media in the Constitution.

“As long as American democracy remains healthy, there will be reporters willing to pursue the truth, even if that means incurring the wrath of the most powerful person in the world,” Karl said. “A free press isn't the enemy of America, it's a big part of what makes America great.”

We’re all for a free press, but how about an honest one that covers President Trump fairly? Remember how WikiLeaks exposed the rampant, rampant collusion between the press and the Clinton campaign? Allowing Democratic Party officials to edit their stories and giving Hillary Clinton debate questions in advance? They had a literal stake in the election.

These left-wing news outlets thought they'd be able to stop Donald Trump from becoming president but now, instead of admitting they were wrong, they have now doubled down on their attacks against President Trump.

On election night, as the realization crept in that Donald Trump would be the next president, it was like a funeral at every one of these networks. ABC’s Martha Raddatz, who hosted a debate, actually cried.

According to MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, it wasn’t just Raddatz who was reduced to tears by the results of a free and fair election.

“America is crying tonight,” he said. “I'm not sure how much of America, but a very, very significant portion. And I mean literally crying. I've gotten texts from a college campus about a dorm that's just in tears.”

Fast-forward to today and the abusively biased media has not changed and has not learned anything. They have not apologized for their collusion or for their dishonest reporting. Even worse, they are ignoring President Trump's accomplishments in just 30 days. They are never going to tell the American people the truth.

So far, President Trump has ordered federal agencies to ease the burden of ObamaCare, withdrawn the U.S. from the flawed Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal, implemented a government hiring freeze and banned aid that helped foreign countries provide abortions. He has issued five executive actions advancing the Keystone and the Dakota Access pipelines, which will create jobs and lead to energy independence. He has announced construction of a border wall, ordered federal funding stripped from sanctuary cities, issued executive actions on extreme vetting and ordered rebuilding of our military.

Trump has ordered up a plan to defeat ISIS, instituted a five-year lobbying ban for administration officials and nominated an originalist to the Supreme Court in Judge Neil Gorsuch. He signed a House joint resolution to help the coal industry get back into business, sanctioned Iran over its ballistic missile program, negotiated lower prices on F-35 fighter jets and Air Force One and met with top CEOs to incentivize them to create jobs here.

President Trump signed executive orders to protect police officers and target drug cartels. He launched a council for the advancement of women entrepreneurs. He has called or met with more than 30 foreign leaders so far and put together a first-class cabinet.

The news media are at war with the president because their little egos are bruised, and they have been exposed. And they're waging this battle by focusing in on superfluous issues, citing unnamed sources. They are basically throwing around allegations in the hope something may stick one day, and they go out there and report breathlessly about whatever the tweet is of the day.

The mainstream media's audience is not you, the American people. They are not the forgotten men and women in poverty, on food stamps, out of the labor force, who can't buy a house and struggle to put food on the table and send their children to good schools. Out-of-touch liberals know nothing about you, nothing about your problems, don't seem to care about the millions more in poverty, on food stamps and out of work, the people that are struggling.

That's why they didn't think that Donald Trump could win. It's why they can't for the life of them understand why he is connecting with the American people. And it is why President Trump calls them for what they are: Purveyors of fake news.

Hannity is even dumber than he looks.

Maybe he could ask around the news room if what Trump is doing is smart. He will find out right quick the answer is no.
MAybe Chris Wallace can smack him 'upside the head.

COPENHAGEN — Swedish police on Tuesday were investigating a riot that broke out overnight in a predominantly immigrant suburb in Stockholm after officers arrested a suspect on drug charges.

The clashes started late Monday when a police car arrested a suspect and people started throwing stones at them in Rinkeby, north of Stockholm. Unidentified people, including some wearing masks, also set cars on fire and looted shops.

One officer was slightly injured when a rock hit his arm and one person was arrested for throwing rocks, police spokesman Lars Bystrom said Tuesday. Some civilians who tried to stop the looters were also assaulted, he added.

Another officer fired his gun, not as a warning shot but because he was "in a situation that demanded he used his firearm," Bystrom said, adding "no one was hit."

He declined to give further details, saying the episode would be investigated.


Police were investigating three cases of violent rioting, assaulting a police officer, two assaults, vandalism and aggravated thefts, he said.


"This kind of situation doesn't happen that often but it is always regrettable when it happens," Bystrom said.

( Bannon is predicting a daily fight with the media with no end in sight as trump tries to move forward with his agenda )


CPAC 2017: Bannon predicts daily fight with media as Trump pursues agenda

White House chief strategist Steve Bannon lived up to his fiery reputation Thursday during a talk before the Conservative Political Action Conference, predicting a prolonged fight with the media, which he again branded “the opposition party.”

Bannon, who spoke on a panel alongside White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, also dismissed rumors of friction with his colleague.

The bare-knuckled Bannon -- who is frequently covered by the media in often-sensational terms but rarely speaks to reporters -- pulled no punches as he used the panel to outline how he saw the Trump presidency playing out. He predicted that as Trump continues to push his agenda, the media will oppose him every step of the way.

For much of the talk, Bannon labeled the media “the opposition party” as he has before. This view has been reflected in Trump’s own combative remarks with outlets he has branded “fake news.”

Bannon, who was in charge of conservative news site Breitbart News until he became Trump’s campaign CEO in August, promised that Trump’s agenda, which he said would focus on areas such as economic nationalism, would be pushed through. He predicted the “corporatist, globalist media” would oppose the president at every step.

“He’s going to continue to press his agenda and as the economic conditions get better and jobs get better, they’re going to continue to fight,” Bannon said. “If you think they are going to give you your country back without a fight you are sadly mistaken, every day it is going to be a fight.”

“President Trump is following through on what he promised the American people, and the mainstream media better understand something — all of those promises are going to be implemented,” he said to cheers from the audience.

Amid some reports that Bannon and Priebus don’t get along, both men said they get on fine.

“We share an office suite, we’re basically together from 6:30 in the morning to 11 at night,” Priebus said, adding that one of Trump’s big achievements has been to unite the Republican Party and the conservative movement.

“I can run a little hot on occasions, and Reince is indefatigable, it’s low key but it’s determination,” Bannon said. “Reince is always steady.”
