    President Trump's new limousine reportedly costs $1.5 million and comes complete with a fridge stocked with samples of his blood type. NBC reports that Trump on Tuesday rolled up to the United Nations in the new vehicle , nicknamed The Beast like the previous limo. The new limousine's predecessor was introduced during President Obama's first term. The new Beast is one of a dozen initially estimated at $15.8 million in total, and is plated with a military grade armor and has five-inch, multilayer windows, according to NBC. All the protective measures make the doors as heavy as those of a...

    President Donald Trump has officially arrived at a public event where he debuted his new presidential limo—"The Beast," as it's known colloquially. Like the previous Beast, first used by President Barack Obama in 2009, the new version is built by General Motors and visually denoted as a Cadillac, and its latest iteration adopts more modern styling cues and surely packs more advanced technology. Although the details are kept secret, the new Beast is, like its predecessor, a heavily armored stretch limousine that, despite looking like a stretched CT6 or XTS sedan, is actually built on a heavy-duty GMC TopKick truck...

    President Trump gave North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un a rare look into his presidential limo – dubbed “The Beast” – on Tuesday after the two ate lunch during their historic summit in Singapore. The media spotted Trump and Kim approaching the limousine, adorned with an American flag. Trump gestured to the car and then a Secret Service agent opened the right passenger door. Kim could be seen smiling as he looked inside the vehicle.

    Subtitle: Covering Hillary Clinton’s campaign from before it started to the very last moment. Things were already looking bad when Chelsea Clinton popped the Champagne. It was just after 9 p.m. on election night and she was having her hair and makeup done in the family’s suite at the Peninsula hotel. She stopped to pour what somebody told me was Veuve Clicquot into everyone’s glasses, figuring that in a couple of hours Donald Trump’s run of early victories in red states (West Virginia, Oklahoma, Alabama) would end and the map would turn back in her mom’s favor. Three hours later,...

    Democrats are on edge over Hillary Clinton’s forthcoming book that is likely to dredge up the controversies surrounding her 2016 defeat to President Trump, just as the out-of-power party is trying to "move on" and chart a course back to the majority. The former secretary of state, U.S. senator and first lady who added Democratic presidential nominee to her resume last year apparently isn’t done with public life. She plans to release her book, “What Happened,” next month. But Bloomberg reports that Democrats are privately concerned that Clinton’s book will help Trump, by fueling his case that Democrats are going...
  • A Jupiterian President? ...The West In Prophecy pt 10

    French president Emmanuel Macron has declared he will govern France like Jupiter, the Roman king of the gods, shortly after officials told the media his thought process was “too complex” for journalists to understand. Summoning over 900 politicians from both houses of the French parliament to a rare Congress at the palace of Louis XIV – the ‘Sun King’ – in Versailles, he threatened to overrule lawmakers with a referendum if they try to frustrate the “reforms” he wishes to impose on the legislature. Such assemblies are usually reserved for times of national crisis.Reuters reports him as saying he desires...

    Donald Trump’s presidential limousine will be equipped with a tear gas cannon, shotgun, and even bottles of the President-elect’s blood type, according to multiple reports. The “Cadillac One” limo, which will make its public debut on Inauguration Day, will replace a fleet of nearly a dozen vehicles that have served President Obama since 2009, Autoweek reported. The vehicle, also known as “The Beast,” will come with a price tag of up to $1.5 million, the New York Post reported.

And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall...

    Hillary Clinton raised eyebrows with a somewhat surreal satellite appearance before the Democratic National Convention that drew parallels to Apple’s famous "1984" ad. Clinton appeared on a giant screen toward the end of artist Alicia Keys' appearance to thank delegates for formally selecting her as the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee. When she appeared, the screen showed glass breaking to reveal Clinton, a nod to her status as the first female major-party presidential nominee.

    During a brief interview on MSNBC, Clinton said she was "eager" to speak to authorities and "pleased to have the opportunity" to assist the Justice Department. Clinton would not say, however, if she has been told whether or not charges would be filed against her. "I am not going to comment on the process," she told Chuck Todd, just hours after she was interviewed by the FBI. "I have no knowledge of any timeline," she added. "This is entirely up to the department." Clinton reiterated that she never sent or received material marked classified on her private server. "I'm going...

    It is nearly impossible to overstate the evangelistic failure of the Catholic Church in Ireland following that country’s democratic embrace of homosexual marriage – the first nation ever to openly choose such debauchery for itself instead of having it imposed by the courts. Many reasons were offered last week for why this happened on an island nation where roughly 84 percent of the population identifies as Catholic. Among them were the tone-setting decadence of a divorce culture, the priest abuse scandal and the fat, dumb and happy that came with the country’s economic revolution in the 1990s. There is something...

    Some armless, others hobbling on spindly prosthetic legs, Honduran migrants came to Mexico City this week to protest their plight. Maimed in Mexico when they tried to catch a precarious train to reach the United States, they feel forgotten, ignored and with little reason to live. “Our visa [to enter the U.S.] is our mutilation, our handicap, our lost arms and legs,” said Jose Luis Hernandez, 29, of Progreso, Honduras. He fell off the train, known here as La Bestia — the Beast — in the northern border state of Chihuahua; caught under its wheels, Hernandez’s leg, left arm and...

    Mexican authorities said Tuesday they staged 153 raids over the last year on a train known as “La Bestia” that rolled toward the U.S. border crowded with hundreds of Central American migrants. Following a big surge in child migrants reaching the U.S. border last year, Mexico’s government cracked down on routes commonly used by migrants to travel from Guatemala to the U.S. border. The head of the National Immigration Institute, Ardelio Vargas, said the 153 train raids were part of 758 immigration inspections over the last year. …

    Tuxtla Gutiérrez (Mexico) (AFP) - Mexican authorities have launched operations to block Central American migrants from illegally heading to the United States, stopping them from hitching rides on a freight train known as "The Beast." The operations came after officials pledged to take action to stem a wave of unaccompanied child migrants who have flooded into the United States in record numbers in recent months. Migrant rights activists and a consular official from a Central American nation said Mexican federal police and immigration agents conducted patrols late Thursday along the train tracks in the southern state of Chiapas, which borders...

    The Obama administration praised a recent agreement between Mexico and Guatemala that could allow even more migrants to hop on so-called "death trains" to try to unlawfully enter the United States. In fact, the administration may even send Mexico foreign aid to help the country implement its "southern border initiative" with Guatemala. At a Thursday Senate hearing on the unaccompanied children who are flooding across the border, Ambassador Thomas A. Shannon, the Counselor of the Department of State, told senators that Mexico's "Southern border strategy" with Guatemala "was a welcome step towards improving Mexico’s ability to exercise greater control along...

    A cargo train used by Mexicans and Central Americans to travel toward the U.S. border derailed in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca on Wednesday, stranding about 1,300 migrants, emergency services said. Many of the migrants aboard were young people and nobody was injured when the train nicknamed "the Beast" came off the tracks, a spokesman for local emergency services said.
