Trumps deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka claims Trump had "a fabulous press conference"

Pence heads to Europe on reassurance tour

Source: Reuters

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence will seek on Saturday to soothe allies unnerved by his boss' unorthodox statements on Russia and NATO as he stresses America's commitment to Europe during the first major foreign address for the Trump administration.

Pence will tell the annual Munich Security Conference that Europe is an "indispensable partner" for the United States, a message he will repeat privately in meetings with a dozen leaders over the weekend and on Monday, a senior White House foreign policy adviser told reporters.

"We are the most secure and most prosperous when both the U.S. and Europe are strong and united," the adviser said, previewing Pence's trip.

President Donald Trump alarmed allies during his campaign for office by breaking with traditional Republican views on the transatlantic relationship.

So the MAIN PURPOSE of the press conference was a "Who's Your Daddy" warning to Senate Republicans?

Trump’s Press Conference Had One Goal: Keep The Senate GOP In Line



Of all Trump’s challenges to D.C. rules, none is more unsettling and disorienting to the GOP power elite than this new idea that we should cozy up to Russia, looking the other way ― even cheering ― as Vladimir Putin mucks around in our elections.

Curmudgeon-in-chief John McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, isn’t the only Republican on the Hill suspicious of what Trump and his team were and are up to with Russia. So is Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, and Sen. Richard Burr, chairman of the Intelligence Committee, and Sen. Bob Corker, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, and perhaps a score of other GOP senators of various rank and stripe.

Any or all of these chairmen ― with the enthusiastic support of their Democratic committee members ― could stage lengthy and, from Trump’s point of view, painful hearings.

Even Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, that exquisitely sensitive barometer of precisely what a hard-right message can and will sell, has expressed deep concern about Russian involvement.

Lying to the FBI is a felony, but "the FBI was not expected to pursue any charges against Flynn"

WASHINGTON, Feb 16 (Reuters) - Former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn told FBI agents in an interview last month that he had not discussed sanctions against Russia with Moscow’s U.S. ambassador before President Donald Trump took office, the Washington Post reported on Thursday, citing current and former U.S. officials.

Flynn’s Jan. 24 interview with the Federal Bureau of Investigation could expose him to charges, since lying to the agency is a felony, but any decision to prosecute would lie with the Justice Department.

U.S. intelligence agencies intercepted Flynn’s call with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak after Trump’s election, in which the two discussed sanctions, the Post reported previously.

The FBI was not expected to pursue any charges against Flynn over the call unless new information emerged, CNN reported on Thursday, citing law enforcement officials.

Eric Trump's winery wants more H-2 workers "on their feet in bent positions for long periods"



Eric Trump’s Virginia winery is seeking permission for the second time in three months to hire foreign workers, BuzzFeed News reports. The petition for foreign labor comes despite President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to put Americans back to work.

According to a petition to the Department of Labor that was posted online on Thursday, the Trump Winery seeks to hire 23 workers for the following positions: “Farmworkers and Laborers, Crop, Nursery, and Greenhouse.”

Trump Vineyard Estates, LLC is looking to hire the workers under the federal H-2 visa program at a rate of $11.27 per hour. The H-2 visa program provides temporary work visas, allowing US employers to hire foreign laborers. This most recent petition is the second petition filed by the Trump Winery since Dec. 2, 2016, which sought to hire six foreign workers.

According to the petition, the job description notes workers would have to work in weather with temperatures as low as 10 degrees while “on their feet in bent positions for long periods of time.”

Reporter April Ryan: I've Never Seen Anything Like Trump's Press Conference In 20 Years

Freeps loved today's train wreck, compared it to Gipper's "I am paying for this microphone" moment

I was hoping to post a few comments from regretful Trump voters, but they're pretty much in agreement...they loved it, so I'd just end up violating the "don't spread Republican talking points" rule.

The most amusing concept to come out was someone bemoaning the tone, they liked what he said but hated the fact that he had to resort to that tone, but he baited the reporters and they took the bait and ZING, it's #MAGA time.

Something like that.

And realize, the Republican-led House is treating him the same way.

Regan was an actor, until he became a God. Trump was a reality show buffoon and a crook until...well.

"The Cornell Show" (5/8/77) finally gets "officially" released on new Grateful Dead 11-CD set

The Grateful Dead stretch out early cover tune "Morning Dew" into a 14-minute psychedelic epic in this blissful preview of the band's upcoming box set Get Shown the Light. The 11-disc package, available May 5th via Rhino, documents perhaps the most legendary of all Dead concerts: May 8th, 1977, at Cornell University's Barton Hall, a stop on their Terrapin Station tour.

David Lemieux, Grateful Dead archivist and Light producer, calls this "Morning Dew" take "quite possibly one of the Grateful Dead's best-ever live performances," with the septet line-up – Jerry Garcia, Donna Jean Godchaux, Keith Godchaux, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir – "singularly focused on achieving the cathartic, frenzied release of the climax of this song."

The near-mythical, frequently bootlegged Cornell show will be available in its debut commercial form, alongside three other previously unreleased full-show live recordings from the same trek: Veterans' Memorial Coliseum in New Haven, Connecticut (May 5th, 1977); Boston Garden in Boston, Massachusetts (May 7th, 1977); and Buffalo Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo, New York (May 9th, 1977). The recording source for the shows is the iconic Betty Boards, the soundboard tapes created by the Dead's live recording engineer Betty Cantor-Jackson.

"Since the moment that the board tape of Cornell began circulating in the late 1980s, its legend was instantly created," Lemieux told Rolling Stone in a statement. "Although plenty of Grateful Dead shows have been called their 'best ever,' in the case of Cornell this statement is rarely contested. It's long been a dream of everyone in the Grateful Dead organization to release the definitive version of Cornell, drawn from the master tapes, and we're as thrilled as the fans are that this show is finally being released."
