    Washington veteran Michael Pillsbury has quietly become a key figure behind Trump's confrontational China policy, to the dismay of Beijing — and some fellow China experts. -- A day before President Donald Trump departed for the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires, several top officials gathered in the Oval Office to strategize about Trump's highly anticipated meeting there with China's president. Seated around Trump's Resolute Desk were Vice President Mike Pence, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer. On couches a few feet away were White House chief of staff John Kelly, Trump's son...

    The sudden Monday meeting in Brussels between Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was widely interpreted as a signal for Israeli military action in Lebanon. Within hours Israeli media are reporting that "Operation Northern Shield" has been launched to destroy cross-border tunnels operated by the Iranian backed Hezbollah movement. Not a lot of information is being publicly released but it appears that the Israeli forces are operating on their side of the border to destroy parts of tunnels that are inside Israel's borders. Israeli farmers are being warned not to approach the border area....

    The Hill ^ | 27 Nov 2018 | MORGAN CHALFANT AND LYDIA WHEELER
    The breaking down of Paul Manafort’s plea deal has dealt a blow to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. A witness to the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr., and a Russian lawyer predicated on damaging information about then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Manafort was seen as a valuable potential witness in Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow. The decision to call him out as a liar effectively takes his testimony off the table, removing a valuable asset for the government. It comes after a lengthy trial where prosecutors won guilty...

    President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump took a moment to thank excited staff at Pittsburgh University Hospital during his visit to the city on Tuesday after last weekend’s Tree of Life Synagogue mass shooting. Gasps from the hospital staff were heard as President Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner passed by in an adjacent hallway. The staff called out to President Trump as he passed by. President Trump and First Lady Trump immediately turned around to greet and thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of the hospital. “Can I shake your hand, sir?” one...

    President Trump has appointed digital strategist Brad Parscale to lead his 2020 re-election effort, his campaign announced Tuesday. "Brad was essential in bringing a disciplined technology and data-driven approach to how the 2016 campaign was run," said Jared Kushner. The Trump campaign pledged its apparatus would not only prepare for the president's re-election, but also play a role in the 2018 midterm elections this year. Parscale, who will serve in the role of campaign manager, is a longtime Trump aide whose connection to the president stretches back well before the president's campaign began in 2015. Parscale began working for the...
  • Of course, Jared Kushner isn't paying taxes — he's making a loss

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/24/2018 | Tim Worstall
    The New York Times tells us that Jared Kushner paid "little to no" income tax from 2009 to 2016. Yes, Kushner is very rich. But not paying income tax is actually pretty reasonable given that on the numbers presented, Kushner has been making a loss. We tend to try to tax positive incomes, not negative ones. That’s not how it’s presented by the New York Times, but it is the crux of the matter. The details are here. The Guardian reliably supplies the outrage here. I'll explain what they don’t: On the numbers presented it’s quite right, at least...

    Representative Joaquin Castro (D., Texas) claimed without evidence Friday that White House adviser Jared Kushner may have prompted the Saudi government to assassinate journalist Jamal Khashoggi by including his name on an “enemies list” provided to Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. During an appearance on CNN, Castro cited “reporting that Jared Kushner may have, with U.S. intelligence, delivered a hit list, an enemies list, to the crown prince, to MBS, in Saudi Arabia and that the prince may have acted on that, and one of the people he took action against is Mr. Khashoggi.” Curtis Houck ✔ @CurtisHouck Video: Here's...

    The Secret Service said Wednesday that an agent who blocked a reporter attempting to question senior White House adviser Jared Kushner was reacting to "an abrupt movement." "The actions of the special agent in this incident were in no way intended to impede those rights or the media’s access to a Secret Service protectee," the Secret Service said in a statement. "The actions were taken solely in response to an abrupt movement by an unknown individual who later identified themselves as a member of the media," the agency added. The Secret Service reviewed the Tuesday incident in which CBS News...

    Speaking Tuesday, she listed what she called achievements that had improved the U.S.’s standing on the world stage, including withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal and improving relations with North Korea. She also thanked Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, calling him a “hidden genius,” who along with his wife Ivanka does “a lot of things behind the scenes that I wish more people knew about.” Both Kushner and Ivanka Trump are senior advisers to the president. Trump did not name a replacement for Haley, but said “many people” want to take her place.

    The June 3, 2016, email sent to Donald Trump Jr. could hardly have been more explicit: One of his father’s former Russian business partners had been contacted by a senior Russian government official and was offering to provide the Trump campaign with dirt on Hillary Clinton. The documents “would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father,” read the email, written by a trusted intermediary, who added, “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.” He replied within minutes: “If...

    Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' office claimed that White House Adviser Jared Kushner's reported efforts to limit UNRWA activities are "a continuation of the subversive plots to eliminate the Palestinian problem." A statement from Abbas' office emphasized the need to "oppose" and "foil" the US plan. It is believed that US President Donald Trump's proposed peace plan will remove the question of PA "refugees" from the negotiating table. The peace plan, the contents of which have not yet been revealed, was by the PA as "aiming to eliminate the Palestinian problem and negate all of the Palestinian nation's legitimate...

    Alice Marie Johnson's life changed on Wednesday -- and she has US President Donald Trump and Kim Kardashian West to thank. And thank them she did as soon as she left an Alabama prison after 21 years behind bars. "I feel like my life is starting over again," an emotional Johnson told reporters outside the prison in Aliceville. Trump commuted the first-time nonviolent drug offender's life sentence on Wednesday, one week after Kardashian pleaded her case in an Oval Office meeting with the President. "I am going to make you proud that you gave me this second chance in life....

    Only on the left would we see the presidential pardon of a non-violent drug offender, a cause that up until now has been a Sorosian shibboleth, greeted with grumbles. Why? Because President Trump took the initiative to get it done, hearing of the 63 year-old grandmother's plight from big-name celebrity Kim Kardashian. The left loathes Trump more than they value that woman and the cause she represents, so a good deed suddenly becomes a bad deed. Here's how the left and its media minions took it, starting with the Guardian: On Wednesday, Trump commuted the sentence of Alice Johnson,...

    Johnson has already served 21 years of a life sentence after she was convicted on charges of conspiracy to possess cocaine and attempted possession of cocaine.... “Ms. Johnson has accepted responsibility for her past behavior and has been a model prisoner over the past two decades. Despite receiving a life sentence, Alice worked hard to rehabilitate herself in prison, and act as a mentor to her fellow inmates,” the White House said in a statement Wednesday afternoon. “While this Administration will always be very tough on crime, it believes that those who have paid their debt to society and worked...

    President Trump has signed a pardon for Alice Johnson, currently serving a life sentence for a nonviolent drug offense, according to a source with direct knowledge. CNN first reported earlier today that the White House had prepped the paperwork for Johnson's pardon. The details: Johnson's cause was championed last week at the White House by Kim Kardashian West. White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, who pushed for Johnson's pardon, had been in contact with Kardashian West over the past several months on the issue. Per a source familiar, White House counsel Don McGahn is skeptical of the merits of pardoning...
