    Melania Trump, 47, wife of Donald Trump, 71, President of the US, posted a heartfelt video on Instagram just over a week after Valentine’s Day. However, the video was not dedicated to her husband, nor is anything known of whether they spent part of the romantic day together. Instead, Melania spent the day visiting children in Bethesda, Maryland to make Valentine’s Day – and later posted a video which didn’t feature Donald either. Melania wore a red coat to visit the Children’s Inn at the National Institute of Health. In the video, Melania is seen bending down to talk to...

    Justin Trudeau has been caught on camera dancing the bhangra at a private dinner in New Delhi. The Canadian Prime Minister was back in traditional dress when he made a dramatic entrance at the event on Thursday night despite facing ridicule from Indians for his 'annoying' outfits during the trip. Trudeau walked out on stage at the Canadian High Commission to the sound of drums before breaking out his dance moves, to the approval of the crowd.

  • How Michelle Obama subverted respectability politics with a ponytail

    Respectability politics died the day Michelle Obama showed up at her last official engagement as First Lady with a thrown-together ponytail-bun combination and a facial expression fit for a funeral. She looked flawless as always. She also looked fed up and ready to go. Respectability politics—the belief that black people can overcome many of the everyday, acute impacts of racism by dressing properly and having education and social comportment—is, first and foremost, performed as a kind of sartorial prerogative. What I mean is that your fashion choices are subject to great scrutiny. (snip) So when I saw her hair on...
  • Gov. Rick Scott Pushes Firearm Confiscation Orders, Opposes Arming Teachers for School Safety

    Gov. Rick Scott (R) is pushing firearm confiscation orders and stands opposed to the suggestion that teachers should be armed for school safety. CNN reports that Scott is pushing a “Violent Threat Restraining Order,” which are similar to California’s Gun Violence Restraining Orders in that they a designed to secure court orders to confiscate firearms following a family member’s complaint. It is difficult to see how such orders–designed to be triggered by family requests–would have been effective against Nikolas Cruz. After all, the family with which he was staying repeatedly called the police on him in November 2017 but refused...

    RUSH: I checked the email during the break. An interesting question: “Rush, you haven’t talked about the second indictments that have been handed down against Paul Manafort,” and I’m paraphrasing the email. The question basically is these things still have nothing to do with even the campaign. Everything Manafort’s being indicted for happened before the campaign, and then a letter writer very astutely mentioned that Mueller is changing the venue from Washington, D.C., to the Eastern District of Virginia, which is where Manafort lives. While that is an interesting aspect of this, the email says, “What is going on?” Folks,...

    A group of five U.S. private rocket companies met with Brazilian officials in December. Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Vector are interested in launching from the equatorial Alcantara launch complex. The coastal launch site would offer cost savings by its ability to reach orbits often preferred for satellites. A group representing five U.S. private rocket companies visited Brazil in December to meet with the nation's space agency and analyze the possibility of launching from the equatorial Alcantara launch complex. The U.S. Department of Commerce was informed about the trip, which was organized by members of the private space industry. The group...

    RUSH: Hey, quick question for those of you just tuning in to the program today: How many of you saw Trump’s CPAC speech? He went about an hour and 20 minutes. It was very raucous. But how many of you saw it? I, of course, watched it here. And you know, folks, I have to tell you. It was so great — and there’s about a thousand of ’em in there. It was so great seeing a bunch of young people cheering the president at a conference instead of watching him on CNN. It was just so much more pleasant...

    To date, four people have pleaded guilty to charges brought against them by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III and his team. Two were ancillary characters: a businessman who apparently sold bank account numbers to Russian trolls and a lawyer who’d worked with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his longtime partner Rick Gates. Two were closer to the campaign. One is campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, whose connections to Russia-linked characters helped spur the initial investigation in July 2016 into whether President Trump’s campaign had aided Russian interference efforts. And then there’s Michael Flynn, a campaign aide who wound...

    Ukrainian patriots are joining American patriots in helping President Trump to Make America Great Again. Please check the article "Solution to the Illegal Immigration and Voter Fraud problems" at www.AmericanSkyNews.com describing practical, humane, sensible solution to stop illegal immigration, voter fraud and liberal destruction of US. Besides Canada Free Press about a year ago, there seems to be Yuuge Wall of Resistance to publicize the solution from talking heads and patriot media. Instead there is a talk about elaborate wall for $20 billion, that $400 bathtub drone can overfly, ignoring simple barbed wire fence Soviets and Hungarians used. Sanctuary cities...

    BRUSSELS (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday asked Russian President Putin to support a U.N. Security Council resolution calling for an immediate, month-long ceasefire in Syria. The two European Union leaders appealed to Putin -- whose military intervention in Syria gave President Bashar al-Assad the upper hand in the seven-year-old conflict -- to stop bombardments of the rebel-held pocket of eastern Ghouta. Warplanes from Assad’s government forces and their allies pounded the densely populated enclave east of the capital Damascus for a sixth straight day on Friday. “France and Germany call for an...

    President Donald Trump is considering pulling U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents out of California for protecting illegal immigrants. “Frankly it’s a disgrace, the sanctuary city situation,” Trump said at a White House meeting Thursday, according to The Hill. The president said that California has refused to cooperate with federal law enforcement since it declared itself a “sanctuary” jurisdiction. Trump added that if the federal agencies left the state, “you would have a crime mess like you’ve never seen in California.” “If we ever pulled our ICE out, if we ever said, ‘hey, let California alone, let them figure it...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren said she is not intimated by the National Rifle Association's Wayne LaPierre after he singled her and other liberal Democrats out in a speech Thursday smearing the tide of "socialism." Furthermore, in the Massachusetts senator's tweet rager Thursday evening, she pledged to fight the NRA "at every turn" in advocating for stricter gun control measures and also plugged a fundraising link to her re-election campaign. "Wayne LaPierre can call me whatever he wants. He doesn't scare me," Warren said hours after LaPierre's speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. "You know what scares Wayne LaPierre? That...
