  • Former guerrilla Petro fights to become Colombia's first leftist president

    BOGOTA (Reuters) - Gustavo Petro, a former insurgent turned rabble-rousing mayor, is fighting to become Colombia's first leftist president, turning his humble beginnings and revolutionary past into a rallying cry for millions of the nation's youth and poor. The 58-year-old economist is about 20 points behind right-wing candidate Ivan Duque to replace President Juan Manuel Santos, but his presence in the second round has worried many in the traditionally conservative nation, where the right has kept a vice-like grip on power. Proposals from Petro to change the nation's economic model by piling taxes on unproductive landowners and abandoning oil and...

    Trumps Grammar Letter I read an article about a former grammar teacher who graded a letter from President Trump. The teacher returned it with appropriate comments regarding the grammar. The grammar is the responsibility of the president since he signed it. It doesn’t matter to me if he wrote it or even read it; if he signs it, it is his. For the record this display of poor grammar diminishes my support of President Trump the tiniest amount with my trust he will improve his grammar. After digesting the article I found no mention of the message President Trump intended...

The White House....short report..... it's called ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’ - as titled by Rush Limbaugh. Nothing Trump does - to the good - will ever make it on the national news. The media have their agenda and they're going to stick with it, no matter what. On Friday, the Trump administration released their annual report to Congress on White House Office Personnel. It includes the name, status, salary and position title of all 377 White House employees. The report also said that Trump...

    Trump's renown is rooted in American hero myths. Trump says that women like Carla Bruni lust after him, something that women like Carla Bruni vehemently deny. Trump says he is exorbitantly rich, yet Trump ran himself into the ground with his casinos to the point that he was 295 million dollars in debt in 1990. He was bailed out by the banks and by his father. The greatest myth, though, has to do with Trump's alleged negotiating expertise. This too is nonsense. Trump was never proficient in the art of the deal. As a businessman, he paid far too much...

    TEHRAN, Iran — President Hassan Rouhani warned Tuesday that Iran could restart enriching uranium “without any limitations” within weeks, after President Donald Trump pulled America out of the nuclear deal, though he said world powers still in the accord could potentially save the pact. Rouhani’s speech, broadcast live on state television within minutes of Trump’s announcement, marked a doubling-down for the cleric who has seen his signature foreign policy achievement threatened by Trump for years. Trump’s announcement from the White House marked potentially the worst-case scenario for the relative moderate, as the country’s economy continues to reel despite the deal...

    MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews conceded that President Donald Trump and his economic nationalism is “wearing surprisingly well” with voters and stressed that Trump will be extremely difficult for Democrats to beat in 2020. When asked about the so-called Trump Show in a Politico interview published on Tuesday, Matthews cited Trump’s stable approval and improving ratings and said it is “wearing surprisingly well” with voters because they like Trump’s anti-establishment “attitude” and “don’t mind him being wrong on the Matthews said Democrats like Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) would be good running mates but the...

    What is the proper role of Government? We have witnessed the perspectives of those in government; we have heard the answers in presidential debates. But what was envisioned by those who DESIGNED our constitutional republic? Wouldn’t you like to KNOW what government is supposed to be doing? The interesting thing is, we don’t have to guess, we don’t have to make it up, we need only look to the framers of our Constitution. It is simplistically elegant, the way they described the role of the Senate and the House. Yet even the simplest of explanations seem to have eluded the...

    The United States is aware of the information just released by Israel and continues to examine it carefully. This information provides new and compelling details about Iran’s efforts to develop missile-deliverable nuclear weapons. These facts are consistent with what the United States has long known: Iran had a robust, clandestine nuclear weapons program that it has tried and failed to hide from the world and from its own people. The Iranian regime has shown it will use destructive weapons against its neighbors and others. Iran must never have nuclear weapons.

    President Donald Trump said Tuesday that the US military will be used to guard the US-Mexico border. “We are going to be guarding our border with our military. That’s a big step,” Trump told reporters gathered at the White House. “We cannot have people flowing into our country illegally, disappearing, and by the way never showing up for court.” The President’s comments appear to take aim at current US policy which requires border agents to catch then release family units who arrive at the border from noncontiguous countries. He also said he had spoken with Secretary of Defense James Mattis...
