    WASHINGTON — Over the years, Sen. Dianne Feinstein has come to view herself as a China hand. And now, amid mounting tensions between China and Taiwan, the California Democrat is increasingly asserting herself behind the scenes as a would-be peacemaker. In the process, Feinstein is playing on a rare set of personal relationships that she has nurtured with the three men now at the center of the standoff: the presidents of China, Taiwan and the United States. To each, Feinstein has been dispensing strong and unequivocal advice. "I sometimes say that in my last life maybe I was Chinese," Feinstein...

    It was mid-May, about six weeks after Trump appointee Mari Stull began her new job as senior adviser at the State Department’s Bureau of International Organization Affairs. As senior adviser at the bureau, Stull was in charge of making sure President Trump’s agenda was represented at the many international organizations the U.S. participates in and mostly funds, such as the United Nations and its various agencies. Stull and her boss, Amb. Kevin Moley, had just left for a trip to Geneva for the World Health Assembly. Back at the State Department, Erin Barclay, a senior career diplomat at the IO...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 20 Apr, 2018 | Byron York
    There was great indignation and much disapproval last year when it was reported that President Trump had asked then-FBI Director James Comey for "loyalty." Such a request, it was said, was more characteristic of a mob boss than a president -- "mob boss" being a phrase Comey himself would use in a book whose title (A Higher Loyalty) he took from the president's request. Now, Comey's book and the revelations it has triggered are casting new light on the "loyalty" issue -- a light that makes Trump's position look far more understandable. The short version is this: In Trump's first...

    FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe testified before the House Intelligence Committee that former FBI Director James Comey told him about conversations he had with President Trump, including Trump’s request for loyalty, according to a new report. CNN reports that McCabe told lawmakers during his testimony this week that Comey told him about conversations he had with Trump after they occurred. McCabe told the committee that Comey also told him about Trump’s request for loyalty, according to CNN’s Manu Raju. During his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee in June, Comey said that Trump asked him for his loyalty during a...

    Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former contestant on President Trump’s “The Apprentice,” was fired and forcibly removed from the White House after Secret Service agents blocked her path to his office, according to reports. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a statement saying Manigault Newman resigned as director of communications in the Office of Public Liaison “to pursue other opportunities.” “Her departure will not be effective until Jan. 20, 2018. We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service,” Sanders said.

    "The Man Without A Country", a short story, written by Edward Everett Hale, in 1863, as the Civil War was raging It is about an Army officer that has committed treason during the Revolutionary War, and has shouted out, before sentencing after being convicted, that he wishes, no longer, to hear any mention of the United States of America. He gets his wish as the judge sentences him to life in prison to be served aboard only USA, navy ships that never touch the shores of the USA. He comes to love the USA...but no one will talk to him...

    Senator, John McCain is much like Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Saddam Hussein, Idi Amen, Nero, Caligula, etc. Today he basks in the glory in denying the people of Arizona and the United States of America the opportunity to receive a vast improvement in their healthcare access. His hate, like those mentioned above is filled with the same hate and envy that all of these misfit human beings brought to earth. He is the worst of political whores and certainly has no loyalty to anyone but himself. History will not be kind to him...he will perish to eternity as a failed human...

    President Donald Trump 's outside counsel said Thursday that James Comey is lying. Marc Kasowitz claimed the president never demanded loyalty from Comey as the former FBI director alleged in Senate testimony. ... Comey testified that, at a dinner in January, Trump said, "I need loyalty. I expect loyalty." Kasowitz says Trump "never told" Comey that in "form" or "substance." He also denied that Trump said he hoped Comey could "let go" a probe into former national security advisor Michael Flynn. Trump never "directed or suggested that Mr. Comey stop investigating anyone," Kasowitz said. ... Kasowitz also declared that Comey...

    The NeverTrumpers are virtue signalling en masse that we never would have put up with a President Obama who demanded a pledge of loyalty from a cabinet-level officer who's actual loyalty lay with the Constitution, had he done that. Well here's the thing: President Obama did do that, or so it seems -- we don't have the full conversation (Gates did not apparently write a memo about it immediately after it occurs). At the very least, the conversation seems to have gone into the area of Gates' loyalty to Obama -- with Gates pledging loyalty, of a kind. Why did...

    President Trump says he did not ask former FBI Director James Comey for a loyalty pledge, but doesn’t think it would be “inappropriate” to do so. Jeanine Pirro of Fox News asked Trump Saturday night if he would ask the new FBI director for a pledge of loyalty. “I want loyalty to the country,” Trump responded. “I want loyalty to the United States of America. I want him to do a great job–or her–to do a great job, and I think we have some wonderful candidates.” Pirro asked Trump about reports from the New York Times that he asked Comey...

    Trump Declared May 1 “Loyalty Day,” But You Shouldn’t Freak Out About It By Morgan Brinlee 19 hours ago President Donald Trump asked Americans to reaffirm their allegiance to the United States' founding principals in a proclamation that caused a number of people on social media to flip out. In his proclamation, Trump called on Americans to "observe this day with appropriate ceremonies," including reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, and asked government officials to display the American flag on all government buildings and grounds. But while Trump's request may sound a bit Orwellian, the truth is there's no reason to...

    Sir Julian King, the man likely to be the United Kingdom’s final European Commissioner, insisted tonight (12 September) that if MEPs confirmed him in the post, his loyalty would be to the European Union rather than Great Britain. King was put forward as the EU’s new anti-terror boss by Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker after the resignation of Commissioner Jonathan Hill in the wake of Britain’s vote to leave the EU. A European Parliament vote will be held on Thursday over whether to back him. The Security Union portfolio was created by Juncker after brutal terror attacks in France and Belgium...

    My late friend and colleague Hilton Kramer used to tell the story about how Time magazine (remember Time?) would prep its photographers before sending them off to snap the likeness of someone they were profiling. The magazine didn't just want a portrait. It was always "Good guy" or "Bad guy." This was well known. So when Time sent someone to photograph Norman Podhoretz, the former editor of Commentary who had lately shed his left-wing opinions and emerged as a powerful voice on the Right, Norman had the wit to ask "Good guy or bad guy?" The photographer shook his head...

    The deputy director of the ACLU of Michigan said in an op-ed Monday that she refuses to condemn radical Islamic terrorism in order to prove her allegiance to the United States. Rana Elmir wrote that she’s “consistently and aggressively asked” to condemn Islamic terrorism, and is tired of having her religious views linked to atrocities like the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and in Paris and San Bernardino this year. “I emphatically refuse,” she wrote in an opinion piece in The Washington Post. The op-ed was titled: “Stop asking me to condemn terrorists just because I’m Muslim.”

After 40 years at the same job, he finally had enough and retired this past spring. He's a mere 62 years old. He left his job on a Friday and started his new job the next Monday. Working at a local golf course. Cutting grass, doing maintenance, free lunch everyday and free golf on Mondays. He was in heaven. About three months ago, his eyesight was suddenly failing him. The eye doctor said that there was something affecting...

    I have seen some nice statues. I have seen the Abraham Lincoln statue in Washington, D.C. I have seen the "Follow Me!" statue at Fort Benning, Georgia. My favorite statue of all is much smaller than these two statues. My favorite statue is "Old Shep" at Fort Benton, Montana. It is a bronze statue of a dog. Old Shep wasn't a champion show dog. I guess you could call him a "Heinz 57" breed. He was a bigger dog as was common for a shepherd's dog on the high-plains desert of Montana in the 1930s. His job was helping his...
