After Sarah Palin Sues, Donald Trump Rips New York Times as a ‘Fake News Joke’

President Donald Trump fumed at the New York Times on Wednesday, accusing it of writing multiple false stories about his administration. “The failing @nytimes writes false story after false story about me,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “They don’t even call to verify the facts of a story. A Fake News Joke!” advertisement Trump was likely reacting to a New York Times story with the headline that Trump “Falters in the Closer’s Role,” citing the setback for the healthcare bill as an example. “Some of the Fake News Media likes to say that I am not totally engaged in healthcare,” Trump said. “Wrong, I know the subject well & want victory for U.S.” One of the reporters of the story, Glenn Thrush, responded to Trump on Twitter. “Call your office, sir. New York Times spoke to many, many, many members of your staff yesterday – and ran everything by your team,” he said. The president’s attack on the Times coincides with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s decision to sue the organization for defamation after falsely accusing her of inciting a shooter to attack Rep. Gabby Giffords. “Today, Sarah Palin took a stand against The New York Times Company by filing a lawsuit which seeks to hold The Times accountable for stating that Governor Palin is part of a ‘sickeningly familiar pattern’ of politically motivated violence and that she incited the horrific 2011 shooting of Representative Gabby...

Goldman No Longer Believes Republicans Can Repeal Obamacare: Here’s Why

One month after Goldman gave up on Trump being able to pass any major (or minor) tax package in 2017, overnight – in the aftermath of Senate GOP’s deplorable failure to find the needed 51 votes to ” repeal and replace” Obamacare- Goldman’s Washington analyst Alec Phillips throws up his hands, and no longer believes that passage of Obamacare is possible. In a note that looks at the current state of health legislation, titled appropriately enough “Nearing the End”, Goldman summarizes that Senate Republican leaders have postponed the vote on health legislation that had been tentatively scheduled this week. A vote is possible in two weeks, but further delays are possible.  Phillips does note that there are still some arguments in favor of eventual enactment: Republicans will be under pressure to follow through on a long-standing political commitment, and the estimated deficit reduction and tax cuts in the health bill could be useful in passing tax legislation later. Fixing the existing program for the coming year will also be necessary. However, he is skeptical and says that “these factors are likely to be outweighed by the political obstacles. Estimates of the potential increase in the uninsured population seem unlikely to improve substantially even after revisions to the bill. Public support for the effort is also weak, and intraparty divisions appear to pose too many obstacles. At this point, enactment...

Exclusive — Pornstar Jenna Jameson Bashes Playboy for Defending Very Fake News CNN: ‘Have a Seat Playboy’

Getty Images by Matthew Boyle28 Jun 2017Washington, D.C. 0 28 Jun, 201728 Jun, 2017 Legendary pornstar Jenna Jameson is calling out “the liberals behind the bunny” at Playboy Magazine after Playboy was the only publication in the White House briefing room on Tuesday to defend embattled CNN amid its very fake news scandal. Deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders lit into CNN after getting asked by Breitbart News about the scandal that forced three of CNN’s senior most editorial staff to resign in disgrace after the retraction of a blatantly false hit piece on President Donald Trump and his associates. advertisement After Sanders lit into the media, Playboy Magazine’s White House reporter Brian Karem was the only person in the entire media to spring to the defense of CNN. He jumped up and bashed the White House for calling out the very fake news scandal ripping CNN apart. Karem’s lack of courage for journalistic integrity has made him into a semi-celebrity in the media since he pulled this stunt in Tuesday’s briefing, as BuzzFeed played him up and even CNN had him on as a guest to promote him on Wednesday morning. Karem, in his latest column for Playboy, waxed poetic for nearly a thousand words about how great he thinks he is for standing up to the meanies in the White House. But Karem’s behavior against journalistic integrity...

Chuck Todd: Republicans ‘Have Maybe a Week’ to Pass Health Care Bill After Recess

Share Tweet Email [embedded content] BY: Paul Crookston Follow @P_CrookstonJune 28, 2017 8:56 am “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd said on NBC’s “Today” Wednesday that Republicans are running out of time to get their health care bill through the Senate. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) originally set the July 4 recess as the deadline to pass the bill, but he announced yesterday that they would delay the vote until after the holiday. Todd said that Republicans have a small window of time to pass the bill. “I don’t think time is on the side of Mitch McConnell,” Todd said. “I think they have maybe a week to get this done after they get back, or they are going to have to admit they are going to have to work with the Democrats.” Todd argued that the challenge Republicans face has to do with the bill’s unpopularity. “This is not wine, Hoda, this does not get better over time,” he said to “Today” co-host Hoda Kotb. “This is the kind of bill that gets harder to support over time, this is why Mitch McConnell so badly wanted this to be done in a week.” “Now you are going to have a mobilization of opposition groups,” Todd said. “Any one of these Republican senators that decides to have any public event of the Fourth of July, they are probably...

N.Korea Issues Standing Order To Execute Former S.Korea President

Two days ago, Japan’s Asahi Shimbun newspaper reported that former South Korean President Park Geun-hye had made plans to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, adding that Ex-president Park, who was impeached in a corruption scandal earlier this year, signed a document approving a “leadership change” in North Korea back in 2015. According to the Japanese outlet, South Korea’s intelligence agencies were to prepare operations to carry out the plan. The report noted that the plotters considered arranging accidents, with a car accident or the derailment of a train carrying Kim Jong-un on the table. Park’s administration also reportedly considered staging a coup in North Korea. The military activities of South Korea’s communist neighbor, including its nuclear arms development programs, apparently motivated the alleged plot, Asahi Shimbun notes. Tension between Seoul and Pyongyang spiked in August of 2015 as the countries exchanged fire after the North fired a projectile at the border city of Yeoncheon. However, the plans to assassinate the North Korean leader were not picked up by President Moon Jae-in’s administration after Park’s impeachment, the daily reports. One month ago, North Korea accused US and South Korean spy agencies of plotting to kill Kim Jong-un with some “biochemical substances,” the country’s Ministry of State Security said, as quoted by AFP. Turns out he was right. And, as of today, he is out for revenge. According to Reuters,...
