Sometime in the future, the ex-Presidents will have to appear with the present one...

Can you imagine any of the living ex-Presidents appearing with the orange shitgibbon? Think about it...

- Obama? After the wiretapping accusations?

- Shrub and Poppy Bush? After what happened to Jeb in the primaries?

- Big Dog? After the debate in which Twitler brought all the women who accused Clinton of sexual misconduct?

- Jimmy? Too much class to allow himself near the fuckmuppet.

Think of the awkwardness should the ex's show up...

Fareed Zakaria: Trump 'indifferent to things that are true or false'


(CNN)Fareed Zakaria ripped into President Donald Trump on Friday, accusing him of "bulls**tting" his way to the presidency.

The charge followed Zakaria's infamous attack during the presidential election, when he called then candidate Trump a "bulls**t artist."

"I got into trouble during the campaign saying something about the President which I still think is true," Zakaria told Don Lemon on "CNN Tonight." "I think the President is somewhat indifferent to things that are true or false."


"He has spent his whole life bulls**tting," Zakaria said. "He has succeeded by bulls**tting. He has gotten the presidency by bulls**tting. It's very hard to tell somebody at that point that bulls**t doesn't work. Because look at the results. He sees something, he doesn't particularly care if it's true or not, he just put it out there."


Couldn't have said it better myself!

Source: CNN

(CNN)A man carrying a backpack was arrested Friday night after breaching security at the White House complex and was discovered by a Secret Service officer by the south entrance to the executive residence, officials said.

The incident happened just before midnight while President Donald Trump was at the White House.
A Secret Service source said the intruder might have entered the White House grounds on the east side before making his way near the residence's south portico entrance.
The White House was placed under security condition "orange," one of the highest levels of security for the Secret Service.
The suspect was arrested by the Secret Service and taken into custody.
The President was spending the weekend in Washington and was alerted to the incident late Friday night, an administration official said.

Boy finds WWII plane with pilot's remains in cockpit


(CNN)A 14-year-old Danish boy doing research for a history class found the wreckage of a German World War II plane with the remains of the pilot in the cockpit.

Daniel Kristiansen and his father, Klaus, discovered what's believed to be a Messerschmitt fighter plane buried in a field on their farm near Birkelse in northern Denmark.

"We went out to the field with a metal detector," Klaus Kristiansen told CNN. "I hoped we might find some old plates or something for Daniel to show in school."

Instead, they found bits of plane debris. So they borrowed an excavator from a neighbor and dug down seven or eight meters.

"At first we were digging up a lot of dirt with metal fragments in it. Then we suddenly came across bones and pieces of clothes," Kristiansen said. "It was like opening a book from yesterday."



US suspends expedited processing of H-1B visas

Source: CNN.com

(CNN)The US is temporarily suspending expedited processing of H-1B visas, eliminating the option of shorter wait times for the program that helps highly skilled foreigners work at US companies.

Under the current system, companies submitting applications for H-1B visas for potential employers can pay extra for expedited processing, which is referred to as premium processing.

Premium processing costs an additional $1,225 and ensures a response from the US Citizenship and Immigration Services in 15 days or the fee is refunded. Standard H-1B applications -- those that are not premium -- take between three to six months.
Indian official says H1B visas bolster jobs

The suspension is effective April 3, and could last up to six months, according to USCIS.

The anti-immigration travesty continues.

We're ruled by modern-day Know Nothings...

Tom Perez is the new DNC chair. So let's not focus on nonsense, but tomorrow.

This isn't about us (the 49%), it's about *everyone's* future. Even the people who felt compelled to vote for Drumpf.

Man, do WE (the Opposition) have a job on our hands!

SpaceX launches rocket from historic NASA pad in Florida

Source: Reuters

A SpaceX Falcon rocket blasted off on Sunday from a Florida launch pad once used to send NASA astronauts to the moon, a step forward for billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk and his company's goal of ferrying astronauts to the International Space Station.

The 229-foot tall (70-meter) Falcon 9 soared off a seaside launchpad at the Kennedy Space Center at 9:39 a.m. ET carrying a Dragon cargo ship bound for the station.

Nine minutes after blastoff, the main section of the rocket flew back to a landing pad at nearby Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, the eighth successful touchdown for Space Exploration Technologies Corp.

"Baby came back," Musk wrote on Twitter, celebrating the re-landing, which came a day after SpaceX decided to delay the mission 13 seconds before launch due to concerns about the steering system in the rocket's upper stage, the company said.

Sunday's launch was the first for SpaceX from Launch Complex 39A, originally built for the 1960s-era Apollo moon program and later repurposed for the space shuttles.

Raucous crowd overwhelms Reed town hall meeting

Source: Buffalo News

ASHVILLE -- A huge crowd of raucous progressives and quieter conservatives overwhelmed Rep. Tom Reed's town hall meeting in this Chautauqua County village Saturday morning, with the progressives repeatedly interrupting and shouting down the congressman's comments as he tried to defend Republican plans to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

The crowd was so large that it was moved out of the senior center where it was scheduled and into the parking lot outside. There, Reed patiently worked -- but failed -- to maintain order.

"We do not always agree," the Republican Congressman from Corning told the crowd at the outset of the meeting. "As we have disagreement, let's make sure we have it in a respectful, safe way."

But decorum broke down as Reed described replacing Obamacare with a conservative plan that would include health savings accounts.

"How can the poor get savings accounts? How can the poor get savings accounts?" many members of the crowd replied in unison.
